But I think that you know one of the burning questions that we seem to be having is how much vitamin D is right for me and there's really It's different for everyone and there was a book called optimal dose that Dr Louis Read. There was some other of our. Clients that ask about that book they wanted to know well, how much do I take because? I think it was very high levels and Dr Lewis is going to answer all that for you. Today he's going to help you discern how much is right for you because there are other factors involved as I just loading up on a bunch of D. and he's going to tell. You what can happen when you do too much of that, and we are also going to answer a whole lot of questions that we've received from our audience via our shooting straight with Dr Louis facebook group, and if you're not a member of that, all you have to do is go there and ask for yourself to be invited in either by email or send him A. Message on facebook and he'll accept shooting be part of our community. You can also answer or ask US questions online. There's an online forum for the PODCAST. So anything we don't cover here today that you still want to know or any other topic Please reach out to us that way we try to work it all in and make it a very enjoyable show. So Dr Louis. Vitamin D seems to be the thing immune system right now can you tell us how much what the difference is and is there anything wrong which is loading up on it? You ever been just one drink away from telling people what you really think. Never. have been quite often Yeah, you know I'm GonNa talk a lot about this, and you know it's absolutely amazing facebook The shooting straight has been a good thing. There's people that follow me there that actually work for some really big. Supplement. Companies. Which is afforded US Janet and may an opportunity to do some really big things I was called salt of the Earth yesterday which I thought was funny. In longhorn Texas as well as we thought, that was even funnier. We've renamed our town from Longview to Longhorn now I I love it. I guess SOCI- eight that we owe steers and Texas I. was kind of funny Yeah. But I've got lots of and this all started about five years ago when I was on a podcast as guests from Jack, Speer Co, the survival podcast, and he is crazy crazy smart, incredibly intelligent. man he he really knows what he's talking about and he's tastes certainly blonde by giving his opinion and you need to listen to him. But I got a lot of people from being on his podcast and people would say there I'm taking five thousand or ten thousand years and you know of course I'm looking at Lamma. It's not working. But I'm taking over ten thousand I said, it's not working MO- supplements don't work. And some of them are actually very toxic to you and there's reasons for that too. I finally did the percentages on it with the help of my count it because I'm not good at percentages good Lord I skipped that class in high school probably when fishing or something and ninety three percent of what people were buying and taking not working ninety three percents your odds of getting something niche. Good. Yeah and Jack Speer Co was talking about it and again spare 'cause a really crazy smart guy. You check him out he's he's really good he. He'll tell you what to do during times of stress and trouble where I'm just good for telling you how to be healthy, which is not bad too but. And I was in Tulsa. and. He he was talking about that Nina is getting involved in his facebook group and he said, well, you ought order this book and you know it'll change your per-. Paradigm about what you think about bottom of day and I said with the books already been ordered. It's on the way coast read books all day long. And Yeah, I don't know this change paradigm I try to push it in any way but I do think what this book outlines, which this guy says take thirty thousand a day. It's like one Manana don't do that not without testing and that this is from the book. Now from Jack Sparrow one of the things that people talk about is I can't sleep dog do you have any kind of thing for sleep? Well, if you're low in Vitamin D. That can cause you to not sleep well. At date threes plays a very pivotal role in the body achieving the state needed for deep sleep and very, very important and I have people at tight. You know five, thousand, ten, thousand and some it gets them up for you need to be I think the sweet spots hundred. Seventy, five or this book says more than that, and there's no evidence of it being toxic, but there's more to that some teach you that. But when you're three levels are optimal, you your your immune system, the depth of sleep in the rest that you get there and your metabolism, your metabolism becomes primed to function more edge greatest potential.
Putin Says Russia Has Approved 'World First' COVID-19 Vaccine. but Questions Over Its Safety Remain
"Breaking overnight Russian president. Vladimir Putin said that the first Russian produce vaccine for COVID. Nineteen has received regulatory approval from the country's Health Ministry the vaccine was developed by Moscow's Galilea Institute. Putin. said. It forms stable immunity and passes all necessary safety checks putting also said, one of his daughters has actually received that vaccine Brian this news about Putin and this potential vaccine is huge but I think we do need to take it with a grain of salt. Well, trying to make sense of it, Becky, good, morning Wolf Becky as well. I mean trying to make sense of it. You have what you think are the markets sort of key points, right? Trillions of dollars in stimulus potential payroll tax cuts, all the market themes that we've all been talking about on CNBC all day long powering the markets higher seven days in a row you wake up at whatever four o'clock in the morning and Russia says, Oh, by the way, we have a working vaccine it's been approved by our own institute and I gave it to my daughter says Vladimir Putin so it is a huge developing story and I think. Guys it really whether or not you believe it or not, and there's GonNa be a lot of scientists that want to see the data. What is this vaccine? What is it based on? How many doses are available? How much does it cost as the world get it either way the market did move a little. We were up before the headlines crossed, but it did move a little on this news and I think Becky it does call into question. What happens on the day and whether that day is today or not the day the world gets a working vaccine. What happens? What do we do? Do we know? I, guess drink some vodka do we go out and street down the street I have no idea you know I might look here. Here's what I. Here's how I kind of look at this news just from what we've been hearing in the last several months from experts. There is a huge debate here in the United States taking place about whether these potential vaccine candidates should be fast-tracked even more and brought directly to the public before it. Goes through the extensive as one face to face three testing the phase three testing that you would normally see it's very high bar. They want to make sure that that not only is it safe for people to take. But also that there is efficacy remember last week we heard from the Dr Anthony. FAUCI that there's a a real risk that you are not going to see something that has ninety percent or north in terms of its effectiveness. The FDA is now looking at fifty percent as the floor. If they can get fifty percent effectiveness, they would think that that is great. Sixty, seventy, five percent even better. But you probably not talking about a vaccine where you have ninety three percent effectiveness with the measles shot. My guess is that the Russians have taken a candidate and fast forward it without doing a lot of those types of extensive studies that you're going to see on candidates vaccine candidates here in the united. States and there's a big debate about that. There are people here in the United States are pushing for us to do the very same thing but if you talk to. Some of the more cautious experts, some of the people who look at this they say, no, we do this for a reason it would be disastrous if you approved vaccine and then it turned out it either wasn't safe or that it didn't work very well but people would lose faith in vaccination programs. It's difficult enough to get people to accept vaccinations and do this, and there are more people here and the United States who are anti factors at this point who are raising questions about whether they'd even take it but there's a real reason that you go through these extensive steps and try to make these things positive now again. Totally, a guess, but I don't know how they would have had time to do all the testing that that we are making sure everyone of the vaccination candidates here in the United States has gone through and that's just the safety question Becky I mean look at the day we've got so far from all of the US in European trials. If you could put safety aside has any of them showed yet enough effectiveness in treating this forest enough antibodies antigens or whatever it is they're trying to create. I'm not sure where even quite there yet. Anyway on some of the data points and to that point whether it's a safety concern or. Effectiveness concerned with the Russian vaccine I doubt will get the daytime. You put the news on twitter whatever you WANNA call it and there's a group of people that just don't want to believe anything. They don't want any good news is that people are just bad I don't know why that is like Oh, well, it's not real or it's Russia must be faked maybe it is fake who knows there's a lot of candidates out there not just on the vaccine side but on the antibody side, the treatment cyber general and other things we could have real candidates by September by the way September is next month. Let me give you a few reasons to be optimistic. The are one the reproduction rate has held fairly steady. There are community spreads parts of America, but overall fairly steady. The question I've got is this we're starting to get some indications that Americans maybe closer to so-called hurt immunity than we think because t cell reproduction rates have seen higher in some communities ironically corona queens a few weeks ago or a month ago they found twenty five percent of the population had developed t-cells or anybody's and twenty five percent was not ill indicating that perhaps there is a greater capacity for amazing bodies to generate these t cells and these antibodies than we think in other. Words guys. There's a lot of terrible news out there and a lot of families are suffering but the market I think have looked at the fact that we had nine, hundred, sixty, eight, sixty, million people got avian flu, the Hong Kong flu and Nineteen Sixty eight off and fifty thousand or so Americans ended up dying from that about two hundred thousand in today's numbers no vaccine was ever created for that. You can debate whether or not. We have a vaccine it's still exist in some form. The point is I think the market is at least looked out a year and said life will hopefully be. Much, different and maybe much more normal than it is right now

Philadelphia officials give an update on COVID-19 cases Monday
"Well there have now been forty five deaths in Philadelphia from the corona virus in the health commissioner says to expect many more over the coming weeks our city hall bureau chief Duterte's Pat Loeb of the update health commissioner Tom Farley hopes federal officials are right when they say cases of covert nineteen will peak this week and then go down but he says there's too much uncertainty to be sure I don't think anybody can predict when it's going to top out so I don't think we should be leaving for certain that this is going to top out within a week and it's gonna get better after that he says what he is expecting an increase in the number of deaths to mirror the increase in the number of cases which now tops thirty seven hundred he says staying home continues to be the best prevention and this survey shows ninety three percent are following the recommendations at least somewhat closely give the city a good B. plus we do better that'll help reduce the spread of this infection the city also announced the federal government is ending its effort to test more people so the drive through testing site at the stadium is closing on Friday but some twenty other sites remain

"I'm Janet Lewis and Dr Louis and we are going to bring you an episode today. Say Combo one is Part of it's called maintaining an attitude of gratitude and the other is to teach you about some different immune products that you may not be aware of so during this Little Thai were having at home alone. y'All can maintain your health. Then have a better chance. When this little wave comes through that you will be in a better spot so You know one of its being positive staying emotionally up lifted. The other is actually taking some products to help. Keep your immune system where it needs to be and for all of you out there that have been purchasing recently which there has been tons. Kudos to you trying to maintain your health during this and staying on your programs because this is where it starts really paying off and For those of you who are new to our show. We're going to give you a little bit. Hope here and tell you some quick things you might want to start doing to give yourself a better fighting chance Dr Lewis. Can you help us today? With maintaining an attitude of gratitude and educating us a little bit about some of the supplements that we may not know too much about well. We'll see what we get into. We were listening. You know. Jannine are being oscillated marseils which we're fine with each other. That's really kind of fun to hang with her but We were doing was watching TV Sunday and in the preacher talked about. We listen to several. Preacher talked about Psalms Ninety one and I got the Bible out and I've got all kinds of markers in there including a very beautiful picture of our sweet granddaughter. But there was no marker in Psalms Ninety One. I opened the Bible and it went directly to Psalms Ninety One. Now freaky is that And what that says he is alone. He alone is my refuge. My Place of safety is my God. Not Trusting the verse. Three says he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He goes on and on and on Yes this is the thing and and when we talk about supplements for immune system health. We're not make any claims about what it can do with Kobe. Nineteen is just if you believe. Your body has Immune system you know one of the best things you can do is to help your immune system help you the CDC actually come out and say that vitamin D might be advantageous for them to actually say that it might be advantageous We thought was a pretty big deal so we thought we might mention Vitamin D. A little bit so I in that kind of the way. The story went unnoticed. Sal Janet so skilfully keeps me from going down rabbit trails. That was really good Yeah it was a former. Cdc chief identifies the possibility curbing some of the corona virus This was a guy from two thousand nine to two thousand seventeen I think. Cdc Director says it's a possibility and they although not proof that vitamin D may strengthen. Immune system noticeably say possibility in May Particularly those that are vitamin D levels are low and then they go on to say that. That's about forty percent of and I say bull on that or I say bacon sandwiches pastor rusty would say although his wife tells him quit saying Bacon Sandwich inappropriate. But we do. Labs on GOBS and gobs of people in their vitamin D if it's highs thirty to forty and these people say but I'm in southern California. I'm on Beach Florida every day. I don't care. Your vitamin D is Low. And it's not even beginning to get adequate in my opinion. Tila hits fifty and above and I'd love to keep mine around eighty ninety but I don't have the gut absorption to do that so I think everybody needs to take it. It needs to be taken with heaven knowing. What's there you know? You need the lab. I think so. it Well in the other part of that is Because a lot of our probably written down to their local health food store by some vitamin D Are they all created equal? I mean do. They absorb the same way. Well you know. That's a good question Tucson Arizona. This Jack Speer Coast Survival podcast. One time and he has about quarter million listeners. Night they'd come on become you know patients and want me to help him. God Amon nightside while I'm taking five or ten thousand. Many of them said fiber ten thousand units a day. I'll say well it's not working finally got tired of hearing it and I did the statistics on it. Ninety three percent of everybody taken five thousand. I use a day or more was not working. And that's because they weren't getting the pharmaceutical type grade or why high is that? Oh I don't know a lot of supplements out there like you're crazy ex wife but well and and that's why we do the one with the K. as well right for people that have an absorption problem. Because I think there's more going on than just taking a vitamin D or zinc and isn't there. I mean yeah it. It really is the day mobilizes the calcium and then the K- helps shunt it back where it should be. Which is out of your coronary arteries out of your joints and it should be back into the brain and not into your kidneys. Mike and Kidney Stones so yeah I I I start with the D Three K. Two and a good ratio that Yeah this article. Further goes on to say Vitamin D supplementation reduces the risk of respiratory infection regulate side. O'connor cytokine production and can can limit the risk of other viruses such as influenza soap. Remember the words King. Remember that I I WANNA get into it lighter I hope because when you get a respiratory infection or many other. Saadane storms it. It becomes a kind of a vicious cycle. And it's a good thing but too much of it is not a good thing and I made a note here if I can find it Cytokines well-known chemical associated with inflammation has been oscillated in patients with all forms of coladas now. So we went from respiratory Toco Ladas. I'm not saying you have your head up your that comes from a journal of Perennial Interior nutrition and it also goes on these notes. I said toxic intestinal bacteria can produce interleukins another form of inflammatory chemicals and it comes from Journalism -nology journal free radical biology so these so-called cytokines storms can get to be really serious serious thing not just with your respiratory system. Although that's what's getting most of the attention now. So it's anytime you have inflammation inflammation good thing. That's protective your body's trying to protect you but it can get to be too much and get to be a vicious cycle so the cytokines are inflammatory proteins and it helps attack the so called germ or bacteria or virus but it can do so much. That actually hurts the body. At least in Mobility weight-loss eroding muscle tissues and power defined disease in itself and. I think that's one of the big things with people that have fibromyalgia thinks like that. You know super chronic pain syndromes in and this is almost always caused by a virus or bacteria according to most of the notes operate so wonder about he at chronic. What to do about it. Well you have to have a good week. Vitamin complex and like Janet said. They're not all signed. They're really not there's Things that the some of the higher ups are talking about vitamin C. whether it's orally or or the Pro Neolithic enzymes. That's pretty seriously Important and I hope I get to some other notes. We talk about bow films and Protease Enzymes. Zinc men are some. Oh my God good research about Q. And we use Kyushu with online. Because it has a synergistic effect and has the probiotic enzymes. That makes it work better within itself
Are you tired? Theres a reason, it's Daylight Savings Time
"I I don't know about you guys but I'm tired. Part of that is the ceaseless Rahm of end of the World News. Of course part of. It's just work or family or the everyday things that always get to me by the end of the week and this week in particular there is another reason. I'm tired and you know it. Or at least most of you deal with the exception of most of Saskatchewan and none of it. You Lucky Jerks Canada's sprang forward this week and if this world isn't seem bleak enough now it is once again dark when I leave my house in the morning every year more and more people ask why we have daylight saving time and the calls to abolish it grow louder and now we may in some places be ready to actually do away with except there's about of course there is what happens if some places in Canada eliminate daylight saving time but their neighbors either to the south or to the side. Do not put up some places decide to stay on permanent daylight time and others decide the opposite. What if every province and territory makes their own call and we end up with a maze of time zones the plays hell with scheduling things like sporting events are flights or deliveries. The last thing any of us want is they solution. Daylight saving time ends up making us even more tired. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story. Alex mckean a reporter at the Toronto Star and their Vancouver Bureau and she's Ab. As tired. As I am I out. How are you? I'm tired like I said this time shift always throws me for a loop. Yeah me too. I mean I was actually not only experiencing the time change weekend but I also flew to Toronto and then back to Vancouver so I've got double jetlag going on so your province is perhaps maybe on the verge of getting rid of daylight saving time and we will talk about that but first because this is a really good part of the story. Can you just tell me who is Ray Saunders? Sure Ray Saunders is a gentleman who just recently turned eighty years old and not a lot of people in Vancouver may recognize his name but they certainly would recognize his most famous creation. Refunders the maker of the Gas Count Skin. Kwok which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the entire city of Vancouver. It's this incredible clock that is powered by steam and has whistled plays a tune every I think every fifteen minutes or so tourists come and look at it in the context of this historic part of the city gas town with. Oh it's a it's probable streets and they take pictures with it and Race unders is is the guy that built it. He built it in nineteen seventy seven and for a long time he He maintained it as well. Now it's maintained by the city of in coober but she wrote back walk and two hundred other public clocks in Vancouver Canada and all over the world to we can a year. He goes around to all of the Public Clark's in the city of Vancouver and surrounding area and he has been the guy who's responsible for manual we. Changing those public Clark's to reflect the time change at daylight savings time so He he describes me that during the this spring forward period which just happened this past weekend. Most of the public clocks they'll have kind of a speedup function and so it'll take about Six seconds he said that for the two wine forward an hour to reflect the new delay time and of course the the opposite happens during the fullback period in November. So He's been doing that for twenty years or so. It seems so quaint in a way but this might be the last weekend that he'll ever do it. Tell me about that. Yeah that's right. It might be the last weekend he ever does it And it's you know it's kind of fitting away because as described when we were talking. He's getting older. He unfortunately experienced a fall recently which which made ladder finding a lot more challenging for him. Of course you have to climb up the ladder in order to reach the public bases. So that's part of this task that he's been doing for for the last couple of decades So but personal reasons aside and personal limitations aside He also possibly last weekend that That this kind of topic will be required in the city of in coober because Bc is looking out just mixing the time changes all together And I I think you're right it it is. There is something kind of quaint about it if if I could just describe a little bit about Something that struck me talking to ray was that he has this really interesting relationship with clocks and time so I mean I'm a millennial and I will admits that most of the time that That I'm actually checking the time. I do wear wristwatches but most of the time I'm looking at my computer screen or looking at my phone that's the thing. That's like really intuitive to me. Ray has this this cool relationship with clocks. Where he says look. There's something lost when you're just looking at numbers on a screen. The clock face the circular nature of it the fact that the hands are always kind of moving around the tell us something about the time that has passed and the time that is yet to come. It's more You know accurate to the way that we actually walk through life and I thought that was such a such an interesting idea not anything that I considered at all so I think he his sense of affection for these public clocks in and the analog nature of them really came through so why is British Columbia considering getting rid of daylight saving time and how did that movement sprang up and come to be yeah. It's a great question And different people will tell you different responses as to the origin story of why British Columbia's dealing with this thing but I'm gonNA start with the practical elements of it. Which is the. This is a conversation that it's also happening South of the border in the western state so Washington Oregon California all considering changing to a permanent daylight time and that has pretty significant implications for us here British Columbia because we're coordinated with those states. There's a lot of commerce that happens between those days even things like as work scheduling. That happens along the West Coast and these are things that it makes sense to be in in the same time as them so Washington last fall passed legislation to change their approach to time to permanent. Be Lifetime. And that hasn't happened yet because they need the approval by the The Federal Congress there in order to make it happen but our premier John Horrigan Here British Columbia was in conversation with Governor of Washington State and said look. Maybe this is something. We're interested in in British Columbia is well. It's something that the the government launched a public consultation on. They sent out a survey and they received within the first month or so. They received more completed surveys than they ever have in the history of all public consultations on on this topic of changing to permanent daylight time so they received two hundred and twenty three thousand completed surveys Colombian yeah and overwhelmingly ninety. Three percent of people said get rid of it. We don't want time changes anymore. We just want a permanent time. Is that something that we see elsewhere in the world You mentioned it's happening already on the west coast of the US but also some parts of Canada. Don't have it as well. That's true and you know after I published this story on what? Bc is doing. I got quite a lot of emails from folks in Saskatchewan because the way described it in the story was that Scotch Wayne is on permanent central standard time but both insist on reminded being over over email but in fact according to the line to Scotch. When is that? It should be on mountain time zone for the same time zone as Berta so the fact that it's on permanent central standard time actually means that it's it's more on a permanent stay like time similar to what? Bc is trying to do so it all gets a little bit confusing but since nineteen sixty six scotch and has been the Canadian exception to this time. Change practice that we have been doing and the they've been on the most places in Scotland. Anyway have been on permanent central standard time. Alberta has considered it. I understand that there's also a private member's bill In Ontario on this topic. So if it's something that people are increasingly aware of but the one that I has really caught my attention in the last couple of weeks was the Yukon because of course the Yukon is also a jurisdiction along the west coast. And they've already pulled the trigger. They said okay. We went to move the clocks forward an hour this past weekend. And we're not going to change them again. It's just GonNa stay dot so Yukon. Who is the one that's most recently has actually made the changes that British Columbia is talking about? Making what is the case in this day and age for daylight saving time? Can

Overconfidence: The Icarus Paradox
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb. And I'm Joe McCormick and we're back with part two of our discussion of overconfidence. That's right If you did not listen to the previous episode do go back and listen to that episode. Because we're GONNA lay the groundwork we're going to discuss overconfidence. Hubris and mythology in human histories. And then get into the psychology of it and what various psychological studies have revealed and continue to reveal about the nature of overconfidence. And how we can. Divide this sort of amorphous concept of overconfidence out into categories that can be more easily studied and understood. That's right now in the last episode one of the main things we talked about was this huge new review of the scientific literature on something known as the better than average effect. Which is the tendency for people to rate themselves as better than average with respect to their peers on all kinds of stuff One classic example is that something like ninety. Three percent of people think they are a better than average driver. And so if you're if you're listening to this as you drive is back on the road and make sure you use the turn signals principle. Stay save lives turn signals. Let other drivers and the districts. No what you intend to do. Even if you think you're a great driver drive like your less good than you are and it will make you a better driver drive like you can't see all the other cars and around you because sometimes you cannot drive like you're driving a murder weapon because potentially you are. It's quite true. Are Now one of the things we talked about it in the last episode was A paper from two thousand seventeen by dawn Amorin Derek. Shots called the three faces of overconfidence which Which actually broke. Overconfidence down into three distinct categories of of bias or misperception and And we talked about those a little bit last time. We're going to be exploring more of what that paper had to say. And it's critiques of overconfidence. Research specifically with reference. To these three types of overconfidence and has a brief refresher. The three types are overestimation over placement and over precision overestimation is thinking that you're better than you are and this would be with reference to some kind of You know objective measure out in the world so if you think you are taller than you are if you think that you can jump higher than you can if you think that you would get a better score on a test than you actually could. That's overestimation the next one over placement is similar but instead it's comparing yourself with other people so the better than average effect would be an example of over placement. It's you know thinking you are better than average compared to your peers at some task or it would be thinking that you know that you work harder than other people or thinking that you are smarter than other people of course with the. If it's overconfidence. Meaning that those are not actually accurate assessments and then finally the other one would be over precision which is being too sure that you know the truth Again this this might be called EPIs- stomach over-confidence it's just being too certain that your beliefs are correct now to get into more and chances paper from two thousand seventeen one of the questions that they address. What actually drives some of these different Effects as as they are manifested so they they start with overestimation what causes us to say think we would get a better score on a test to than we do or to think we have more money in the bank than we do a common answer that people give to this is the idea of wishful thinking. It would feel good if this were true. Therefore I believe it right the authors don't think that this Explanation is very plausible and they offer several problems with it and we can interrogate these. Maybe disagree with them as we go on but first of all they say you know self delusion is demonstrably maladaptive for example a tendency toward wishful thinking about the safety of kissing sharks. So with tongue is is not a trait that the environment will tend to select for people overconfident about their academic abilities. We'll tend not to study and actually do worse people who believe themselves invulnerable. We'll take risks that sometimes get them killed. This might seem obvious but there is actually plenty of research on this. I mean people who are over confident about their abilities. Do face a lot of downsides when those abilities are put to the test right. Yeah I mean one example from literature that comes to mind is that of Macbeth who believes himself protected by prophecy? And of course snuffs it exactly but then again I think okay so it is true that these people will face a Lotta downside but then again people do engage in self destructive self deluded behavior all the time. This is a common feature of human life. Yeah I mean for instance. We were just recently talking about Sepo Affect Our our movie episode. We're talking about the fly and a about the possibility that the placebo effect is is basically due to You know this innate tendency toward self delusion that may very. Well be adaptive in at least in this scenario where yeah we we benefit from being able to believe something is going to work and And experiencing at least a small physical benefit from it like a small cured of benefit from it. And then you know I also can't help but think that you know self-delusion entails far more than just over-confidence it also entails. All manner of paranoia and there is a strong case for the adaptive nature of say making type one error in cognition a false positive the belief that the Russell in the tall grass is that of a tiger. When it's not because of you make the type to air. You're more likely to be eaten by the Tiger. Right right yeah. Having accurate information about the world is actually very useful and having inaccurate information can kill you. Yeah but but I'm not so much you know trying to disagree with the maladaptive Self-delusion argument That we mentioned earlier but but rather you know to point out. The human experiences is rife with self delusion. So might a dash of overconfidence. Even in the form of overestimation serve do balance out this alchemy of of our perception of reality for example. Have a singer in granted cariocas very low stakes right but it could involve social embarrassment which you could fear would lead to ostracism. And that's actually one of the most powerful negative motivators human behavior right but again curiosity is also one of these things. Where like sometimes? It's cool to do it badly. So this is a perfect example. But so you have a carrier. Karaoke singer then imbibe in a little liquid courage before taking the microphone as most Kariuki participants are are want to do but yeah they they get a little liquid courage because they know they don't have the greatest voice in the world and then they feel a little awkward getting up there but but they they know that a little bit of booze induced. Overconfidence might help matters. I think you're exactly right there and this is funny to start here because I think while the authors make tons of good points this is one of the ones they make that I might disagree with the most. I think that there are antagonist adaptations in human behavior. One pressure might favor having an accurate picture of the world. Assessing things in a clear and accurate way while across pressure favor self-deception especially self-deception in the form of overconfidence. For example. You might be more likely to survive if you have accurate assessments of your own abilities but you might be more likely to take big risks with potentially big rewards if you overestimate your abilities Or Self Delusional. Overconfidence could be adaptive. Because it helps us persuade or even deceive other people about are worth. Yeah old ultimately you have to believe in yourself you know other people are not going to believe in you for you right. I mean we. We talked in the last episode about how. It's probably not a coincidence that you really often notice overconfidence in people who occupy high status leadership roles. Right how did they get there? I mean it's not hard to imagine. The overconfidence helped them get to that point. Yeah it's Something it's a fine sometimes terrifying exercise to like if you if you engage with people like this and then when you realize Oh. They're just really overconfident. They don't they're they're not to say they're not skilled but when you realize here is they're not sometimes they're not but sometimes you realize. Oh there. There is this gap between ability. And and and what? They're they're saying they're going to deliver on what they are. Estimating the future will consist of. Yeah I mean I. It is kind of shocking. How often in life? You will suddenly come to a realization that you know the boss. Or the leader whatever's main skill is B. S. ing. Yeah like that they can just go out there and wing it in a way that you would be too timid in reserve to do right now this idea of the accurate assessments playing into our. You know our own abilities i. I couldn't help but think of the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid scenario because really as it relates to two specific points in the film one is the the whole. Would you make that jump if you didn't have to scenario where they're being tracked? They're being hunted and they've come to this cliff overlooking this river and they realized that if they jump if they jump off this cliff may land in that river and they don't die they'll get away because the stakes are such that those pursuing them will not follow them. They will not make that jump if they don't need to. So so there's there's that and then at the very end there's kind of a going out the old fashioned way. Guns a blazing scenario where corner. They're going to slowly be killed and they decided to just go for it to just bust out shooting and just
Displaced yet again, Syrians flee Idlib
"Humanitarian crisis in northwest Syria has left civilians with nowhere safe. Not even displacement camps. Un human rights chief. Michelle Bachelet said on Tuesday in a statement. She warned that more than nine. Hundred thousand civilians in Syria North West have been forced into ever smaller areas in search of safety as government forces. Continue their campaign against armed opposition groups. Here's her spokesperson Rupert. Colville civilians fleeing the fighting of being squeezed into areas without safe shelter that are shrinking in size by the hour. Still bombed and they simply no longer have anywhere to go. We've also recorded several incidents. In which displacement camps were either directly hit or affected by nearby strikes as the high commissioner puts it no shelter is now safe and other government offensive continues when people forced into smaller and smaller pockets? She fears even more. People will be killed since the first of January. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights CHR has confirmed two hundred ninety nine civilian deaths in it live around ninety three percent of that number were caused by the Syrian government and its allies and two hundred forty six came after airstrikes.

Women and People of Color Still Underrepresented Behind the Scenes, Study Says
"The writers of the ones who craft that material and unfortunately women and people of color and had a hard time breaking into the core of credit writers for major Hollywood films so again we see very little increase for people of color in fact we've been doing the study since twenty fourteen which look at the twenty eleven year and it's relatively flat hasn't changed a lot over that that period for people of color women have made some progress in fact one of our the very worst statistics in our tires study was the representation of women among directors and in fact women have made some progress in recent years among directors even though they haven't seen a lot of progress among writers so is this lack of progress because AT it's been one way for so long that it is just going to take a lot longer to have it be more equal more integrated more diverse or is the answer be that the establishment in Hollywood just really doesn't want it to be that diverse well I I think it's really more about opportunity and less about talent and the reason I say that is because we have seen the increases on screen and and that's because Hollywood has gotten the memo the diversity cells one of the things we look at in our study is the relationship between onscreen diversity and box office and repeatedly over the last seven reports this is the seventh at our annual series we've shown a clear relationship showing that films that look more like America on average do the best in terms of global box office moreover we know that people of color who represent about forty percent of our population now on women a little bit more than half are huge buyers of tickets if you look at the top ten films ranked by global box office in our last few reports we found the people of color but the majority of the domestic tickets for half of those phones well guess what the number increased to and a recent report in twenty eighteen it was six of the top ten films in twenty nineteen of eight of the top ten films so in many ways diverse audiences are where the money is and so Hollywood now recognizing that fact I think they're putting more people of color on the screen what they're not doing is putting people of color and women behind the scenes were a lot of the important decisions are made about what gets green lighted what type of but it's gonna be attached to the project who's likely going to direct the project all of which have an impact on the quality in the nature of the images that that appear in those projects they have to recognize that those stories come from those people though well that's exactly right and and and we know and all the data show that diverse people wanna see themselves represent in film and the more likely to pay you to do so and if they're a huge share of your audience effect Latinos over represented there are you know a larger share a frequent movie goers and then other groups and frequent movie goers by half of all Hollywood ticket so it just doesn't make business sense not to reduced content that's likely to attract those audiences nothing collie was doing that what they're more reluctant to do is change the structure of how they do business behind the camera and that's why we're seeing a lag in terms of writing and directing and some of the other important decision making like in the executive suites for example which we also look at that goes back to my my question from before what accounts for that is it because there is a conscious determination not to change to keep things the status quo or is it just because it it's going to take a long time to reverse an industry that after after all has its roots in the other century okay so it it didn't take long for the industry to understand that in order to continue to make money we have to change what we're showing the reason why they haven't changed what happens behind the camera is because quite frankly the white men who have dominated the industry traditionally simply don't want to share that power and it really does boil down to power it's a very lucrative industry to to to head a studio is is not a bad gig and and get it yeah to invite women of color into the executive suite which is the industry has been reluctant to do means that you're basically knowledge and that you can't do it all and that other people have things to offer that are of value and once you open that door then I think you run the risk of losing your lock on those types of positions and just to kind of give your system run talking about we've been tracking this to for the last six years or so but if you look at studio heads if you look at the eleven major studios and in major studios ninety one percent of the shares the chairman of the CEOs of those studios were white and eighty two percent were male if you go down a level to senior executive the the senior management group ninety three percent white eighty percent male and I'm gonna start looking at unit heads heads of casting in marketing and and so forth and so on eighty six percent white fifty nine percent male woefully out of sync with where America isn't it simply comes down to power down elements yeah do you have a social sciences UCLA Hollywood
Want a Job in Crypto? Firms are Hiring
"The Block and the blockchain association recently released a report on digital asset human capital trends which I'll just put in a plain English by saying it's about employment trends in Crypto. What are the main takeaways of the report? Well I think the most surprising takeaway from the report is the fact that this market is is pretty sizable right. We're talking about over twenty thousand jobs. Dozens of firms with more than one hundred employs always. This isn't an industry of basement-dwelling coders anymore. This is a real market with with major firms. Making good amount of revenue and a lot of that activity is happening here in the United States and abroad and over the past year. We've seen the number for of job. ADS increase and the investment trends over the past. Five years are also increasing right so total venture funding money in dollars. has increase overall since two thousand seventeen right Two thousand eighteen. We saw a major pickup And then a sixty percent declined between two thousand eighteen and twenty nineteen but the job market is still healthy and in growing and when you analyze the different firms for your report what kinds of firms did you include like. Did you include any of the decentralised projects foundations. Because I did see a few but then I didn't see the in theory and foundation which surprised me So I wasn't sure you know what the methodology was while we try to include as many different types absa firms nonprofits To profit seeking firms and foundations for the report reached out to over two hundred seventeen. Obviously it's not a complete league. You know overview of everything but we try to get as many firms as we could included but it does range and it runs the gamut from You know exchanges trading firms to Foundations like maker foundation and many different other types of companies service providers like China has another example and so who are the biggest employers in the space and what kinds of companies are they. Great question and it. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the major employers in this market are the companies that are are making money and that have found product market fit. We're still in. A speculative speculative stage of this market of the crypto market so exchanges and trading firms and service providers to exchanges. Make up the lion's share the of jobs just given the fact that that's where we are right that's where the market is growing so welby global has over a thousand employees coin joint base has close to a thousand employees okay X. is around a thousand employees and Mining firms also make a good chunk of the market from a job perspective So bit main is one of the largest employers as well about forty six percent of the largest largest employers are digital asset exchanges followed by development firms at around twenty nine percent and then mining firms at around ten percent. This is fascinating because I would actually like if you were to kind of put. All of those in their own category very broadly. You could say. They're sort of like picks and shovels type types of businesses. which in a way make sense? I think for the early stage that we're at and there was another way that you analyze these companies which is geographically. Ah where are they based. You know when you do the breakdown that way while there's a few ways we can look at this for some of your listeners. Who might hearken back on the token days of your And they might associate this market. Solely or exclusively with ICO's or token launches at this point in time. Singapore has really become the go-to jurisdiction for those types of companies making up around thirty seven percent To the US is thirteen percent. So I find that interesting. Just because it illustrates how Skittish folks here in the states are about operating those types of businesses given the regulatory reprisal. We've seen over the past two years overall. Obviously the United States is the leader in terms of in where the jobs are making up about thirty three percent to Asia Pacific's sixteen point seven percent and then the EU follows all is closely at eight percent. So the the whole point just the back up a little bit of this report was to illustrate for lawmakers legislators and policy-makers policymakers in DC. How big this market is where the jobs are growing and to sort of pick the brains of industry insiders about the impediments? They face in terms of either expanding their businesses launching new businesses and hiring in terms of job. Growth Right your ear and this is fascinating giving the backdrop of a price action. The United States saw digital asset jobs listening Rothe Year over your increase ninety three percent in two thousand nine thousand nine hundred and I mean so when I saw that versus what was thirty seven percent and the rest of the world world. That surprised me because of as you mentioned you know a lot of these companies are saying that the. US Isn't providing. Good regulatory clarity. So why do you think I right. We are still seeing quite robust growth here especially compared to the rest of the world one hundred percent. That's a really good question and it does it. It is an interesting juxtaposition right. Because you and I both know how much anxiety there is about the regulatory environment in the United States and all the. CEO's you talked to all the CEO's. I talked to list that as being one of the larger impediments. But if you think about the companies that are here here in the United States they are the you know quote Unquote Regulated Compliant Exchanges Coin based crack in Gemini. And at the end of the day. Those are the companies that are hiring so even though firms like let's say labral for instance might face some regulatory Tori headwinds a company like coin. Base pretty you know. They've got their stuff together in terms of their regulated by New York Department of Financial Services. They have their money transmitter license across many different states and they can expand pretty on abated. They have the venture capital to do it. They raised three hundred million in their most recent round. So I think that's why there's that that sort of that's how shaping out and one other thing that you mentioned briefly was The investment in this space. How were we sing? That breakout geographically. That's an interesting question so again. Obviously venture funding has fallen off since twenty Eighteen I mean in total. We saw that go down. Sixty percent percent The way the value is accruing geographically. Obviously the United States is is leading the way the US has two point seven x as many investors sisters with offices as Asia Pacific so the US is still king in that regard but but then again what's interesting racing as many investors have headquarters in the United States but then have offshore entities to gain exposure to investments that they otherwise wouldn't be able to here in the US. Okay yeah in a way that sort of almost like a theme that I see throughout where you you know despite some of the regulatory I guess lack of clarity your uncertainty that we are still seeing quite strong Quite a strong industry here in the US like you know. Many of the most active of companies that are hiring our us-based and even the place where the the employer is domiciled the. US is still the largest. It's thirty three percent so you you know it's it's almost like yeah I I guess it's just sort of saying you know this is the biggest market it's the most desired market. And so even despite the regulatory lack of clarity there's interest in being based here in hiring here
Meet Emma, The Immigration Chatbot
"Our guest today. Is Courtney wind chip who the division chief of the Digital Services Division at the office of Citizenship and applicant information services under the US citizen and immigration services. USCIS hike Ernie. Thank you so much for joining us on the podcast today. Thanks for having me. Yeah welcome Courtney and thanks for joining us. Today we'd like to start by having you introduce as yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at US CIS. Sure happy to do so. So as you mentioned. My Name's Courtney I'm with. US citizenship immigration services that we oversee the lawful immigration and naturalization in to the United States so this includes any family employment or Humanitarian Ryan benefits that an individual may apply for in order to enter remain in the United States. My current role is as a digital services division cheap and we we oversee all of the public visual tools that we have which includes very USCIS website English and Spanish as well as websites. Thanks for citizenship. Resources as well as they are five and we are awesome building out account services. This is an area of the web that is cure that it allows for online transactions and other support services that allow individuals to self service and provides a bit more precise information. So that's my permanent role. I am in an acting role as well where I oversee. Data Management in our office of chief data offers great. Well I know one of the reasons why we're having you on this podcasts. Of course because we're focused on artificial intelligence and one of the patterns that we talk a lot about is one of those seven patterns of a I is this conversational pattern and the US deployed employed. Recently one of the most widely used chat bots in the federal government called. Ask Emma and I know that website is very highly heavily traffic traffic website and of course also feels a lot of phone calls. People are definitely very enthusiastic about contact regarding immigration immigration status lettuce so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with? Ask Emma and what you're doing on the chat bots. Can you tell us a little bit about that and how that came to be yeah. Emma started in December number twenty fifteen and is the first interactive virtual assistant to date. She has successfully responded to more than thirty five million inquiries for more than eleven million users. So we're very very excited about that. And she has a success rate of about ninety three percent in English and ninety percent in Spanish so she has become a very useful tool for many of our applicants and the general public. I give you a sense of her usage versus some of the other things things we receive about fourteen million calls from and all of our digital tools. Together you have about twenty five billion sessions for months so you can see. She is a highly traffic pool that we rely on very heavily and she has grown and expanded her knowledge over the years. So right now she has an. I don't know right that hovers between eight to ten percent English. And we're hoping to get that down even lower over coming years. And as we continue to train her and we also see her as a great tool to collaborate with our external stakeholders as well as internal stakeholders so initially she a trained with our adjudicators our case managers review cases and our contact center staff over time. We had her trained also with the public and now she has a ton of information and then in more recent years we've also integrated her with live chat services so she's continuing to the pills than where she doesn't have goals. We are now able ambition to from live help services. Yes that's a lot of inquiries every month when you said those numbers I was like. Oh my Guinness so I can see how a chap can be very useful and now that you've had 'em for a few years. I'm sure that there's a lot that you've learned and as you said you continue continued to improve and try and get her. I don't know right up. So for other agencies that are looking to deploy chat bots and industry as well for that matter. What lessons have you learned both good and bad from this experience that you can share with our listeners so we obviously learned many many lessons along the way you know? Some of the lessons that I think are important than have have been really key for us are clever. Aiding and Co creating from the outset so working as I mentioned with our internal and external stakeholders the really develop develop tour of that is all and also has allowed us to think about ways in which we can leverage technology as best we can so five years ago how we were using chat bots is very different and the investments. We're making this very different than than some of the technology available now so I think allowing us to find a lot of the tools that are available right now row for better automation and content management. And that's something that we have struggled with over the years and I would recommend the folks that if they can consider that and consider how also how transferable it'll may be based on the technologies they're trying not to lock into length solution Shen but really be able to use a variety of solutions meet their needs and also how that could integrate with other efforts that they have that they've prioritized of the years. Yeah look at Chat bots and conversational systems of all sorts kinds that are built until websites but also texting and messaging and even now the new voice assistance on Alexa and Siri Google home and all those places in Cortana and they may be thinking about the return on investment. Right a lot of folks like well. Why would use the Chat Bot well hopefully to reduce call volume maybe to improve customer support and service maybe to respond to requests? When you're not usually open right the the offices are closed and I think you know there's lots of different ways of thinking about an inmate? It'd be interesting to share from your perspective. You know where and how you know the Chat Bot in specific and maybe more generals barrels having a big impact on the way that you're serving customers and just both in terms like where are you seeing the return on investment now but also looking towards the future are you looking at its future. Roi and maybe ways that you're looking to expand the use of chat bots and AI. In general in the next few years got excellent questions. I think our biggest a school has been how to create more space for our case workers to focus on complex immigration issues news and reviews rather than some of the more basic questions like K.. Status or processing time but we receive on a day-to-day basis so allow Emma and other tools to provide that information to the public and ideally get them. It's timely accurate information as quickly as possible on their timeframe right as opposed to having to rely on when contact centers opened lower case workers to focus on the more complex cases and where needed having to have the in person interaction. So I think that's where we've seen value. I mean it's something I will say is a phrase. We thought Emma would produce call volume. We find that and I think one of the things that we are looking. We've been carefully examining over the last couple of years but particularly I I was saying last six to twelve months is how'd we most effectively use the channels that we have available to the public for inquiries are customer. I'm Craig Channel and that we may in fact start to make some really tough decisions about what channels are available for. What purpose and really start to nudge? The people into certain types of tools or resources so that they can get the best information that we have available and allow again our team. Focus on the case Orca. Though you know it's interesting that you said that Emma didn't actually reduce the call volume. I guess people use her as first line of Defense and ask her certain questions but then at the end of the day maybe they still want that human interaction so have you found that it's reduced call volumes for certain types of questions or is that a goal that you're looking to the have in the coming years that's a goal. We are looking to have in the coming year so right now. She provides some basic information about K status and processing assessing times in particular which are the areas. We get the most inquiries about gloves things like changing your address. But I think what we're trying to do is use a similar functionality. optionality that Emma has used that in a more secure environment authenticated environment

#PayUpHollywood Attempting To Change Pay And Working Conditions For Entertainment Industry Assistants
"Assistance in the entertainment industry are overworked underpaid and and often have to run personal errands for their bosses even after they leave for the day. That's according to a new survey of more than fifteen hundred assistance. It was released this this week by the grassroots movement called pay up Hollywood. The campaign started as a twitter Hashtag back in October and has been gaining momentum since then Katie kilkenny is an associate editor at the Hollywood reporter where she covers labor and she explains how the Hashtag grew out of an episode of script notes. A podcast asked about screenwriting. A assistant wrote in saying you know I think one of the big issues. That's going to be coming forward in the next few decades in Hollywood is that we're gonna I have to talk about the low pay. That assistance are facing in how that is related to rising cost of living in Los Angeles and from near the hosts which cacus Craig Mason. Who are both really powerful writers in Hollywood? Read that note and ask for more people to talk about their stories of being an assistant in Los Angeles they just got an overwhelming matic. Email and a writer named Alber who is on the board at the Writers Guild of America started Hashtag called Hashtag Champ. Hollywood so a couple of days before Thanksgiving script notes facilitated a pay up Hollywood town hall where assistance had a chance to talk about some of the issues. And here's what one woman who didn't provide. Her name had to say about burnout. We almost have like three jobs at once. Like not only. Are we working our day. The job for forty to sixty hours a week and not making enough and then therefore doing work on the side like babysitting driving etc but we also have the work of our own careers. I and I think that is what leads that burnout. Because we're not only expected to have this day job that puts all these things in place for us to move forward and then on top of that we're expected to have like an hour to write a day or or to fund their own short films and make them on the weekends like that is just like impossible. I think impossible's inaccurate word word for what she's describing. What some of the other issues that came up around the Hashtag and around the town hall so I think a big one is the question of access? Hollywood has been talking talking a lot about its diversity issues wanting to get more folks into the pipeline of diverse backgrounds. But what we're looking at. Here's the situation where you have to to be able to afford to be an assistant in the first place to get that first leg up in the industry and so Paige Hollywood has just released a survey of one thousand thousand five hundred fifty one assistance and they found that seventy percent of the people who were surveyed were white and that fifty two percent were receiving financial -sential aid from family and friends to make ends meet as they were assistance in Hollywood. So I think we're seeing that this industry in order to diversify does have to become more accessible or economically manically accessible to folks who aren't coming in with with that aid so that to me was notable as well as the fact that a lot of assistance were also talking thing about this sort of demeaning conditions that were expected of them. Hollywood has pay your dues culture and I think a lot of folks remember at its in difficult conditions when they or assistance and so sort of expect. There is a lot to go through that as well. But in the survey it showed that one hundred and four respondents had an object thrown at them in the workplace. So I think that we're looking at conditions assistance or not only being pretty badly paid but also they are facing conditions that are pretty rough. We're talking with Katie kilkenny at the Hollywood reporter about pay up. Hollywood there are other things that really jumped out to me. One is that almost ninety three percent of those. The people surveyed said they work more than forty hours a week and fifteen percent said they were working more than sixty hours a week and hero's something that was really troubling. Almost almost a quarter said that they had reported an increase in substance abuse. So it sounds like the job is really taking a terrible terrible toll on the people who are in this line of work completely. I mean I think these numbers sort of show something that assistance have been talking to each other about for a long time and so I think for a lot of this is not a surprise but this survey really shines a light on some of these issues and the fact that things need to change and it sounds like some show runners are actually saying this is unsustainable and maybe even immoral absolutely so I talked to a few folks. We'd been vocal on twitter with their support and basically found out talking to them that they were advocating for higher wages on projects that they're currently developing and these are Adam conifer who Folks might know true. TV's Adam Ruins everything. David H Steinberg. who was a CO show runner? Netflix is no good nick. And the writer producer producer Creator Ayelet Waldman who was an executive producer on Netflix. Unbelievable Waldman in particular told me that she was trying to get her assistance twenty dollars an hour plus benefits and hover was saying that he was trying to just various aspects of the job to make it more. Tenable you said in your story Lori that you had reached out to the major studios and talent agencies for comment and let's just say they weren't flooding the phone lines calling back. have any of them. Had anything anything to say. One Agency is doing something and they didn't provide comment for the story. But you know I heard via sources that for which is the talent agency that represents spoke John August who helped movement as well as Liz Alpert who coined. The HASHTAG has conducted in anonymous pace survey of their assistance. And and I will also be receiving and looking at the results of the pay up Hollywood survey and I imagine that in weeks to come others will speak up more but for now they our remaining mum and even if the hours are horrible. The working conditions aren't great. A lot of people want these jobs right because it's so hard hard to get into the business and this is one possible path for people who want to become creative people in Hollywood definitely. They're extremely competitive jobs and often a line that is used with assistance to speak up about work. Conditions is that you know there were thousands. That will take place but it's gotten to the point where the wages are the same as they were twenty years ago in some cases That's what we're hearing from. These stories while the cost of living in Los Angeles has skyrocketed. And so these assistance missiles argument is that the situation is untenable at the slain. Katie Kilkenny is an associate editor at the Hollywood reporter. Katie thanks so much for coming on the show as much for having me
How Trump’s Stock Market Record Stacks Up
"So allison was a anyone's going to move the market mark. It's gotta be the president of the United States right. I mean all that power and influence and has to count for something. You'd think so. So when looking at Google trends as you happen to see a massive spike in the interest in the terms of trump and stocks the week of November six through twelve two thousand sixteen ecksteen and it just so happened to bin we following trump getting elected and along with that you see a lot of articles like seven stocks for a trump presidency wherein the riders make assumptions about which socks are going to perform. Well with trump in. The White House took a few years in picks panning out. Let's take a fairly unscientific. Look shall we please do very short on time for planning for this week's episode so go easy on me everybody all right so ice scrounged up a three articles from back in the day and did some very rough back of the envelope math to see how well do these stock prognosticators do when trying trying to figure out what trump's presidency would mean for some companies and industries so let's start with six stocks to buy when Donald Trump is president from the street. So any guesses on what some of these stocks are going to be or do you just want me to. Do you want me to tell you the stocks and you can guess if they're upper down soon ooh they would be like financial services companies and oil companies. Because they're gonNa you know trump is going to remove all these environmental protections uh-huh and things like that Yup so the street. Now I pick was apple because of something called tax repatriation which I did not have time to research idea being that if you have a bunch of money outside of the US will let you bring it back into the US and at a lower tax rate. There's a lot of companies are starting their money overseas because they don't if they bring it back to the US they'd they'd have to pay taxes. Yes I don't know why that means that Apple's stock price would go up but they picked apple for that another one geo group which is private prisons. We laugh but it's actually very sad. It's funny because it hurts hurts so much yeah again. Exxon Mobil Oil Smith and Wesson gun manufacturers which later there became American outdoor brands HDA Holdings which manages hospitals this one because apparently trump had promised that To kind of overhaul the VA system and allowing veterans to go to any hospital not just a Va hospital and then this one is just so on the nose. It's just it's it's quite funny Semtex the a Mexico based construction company a Mexican company. and Oh because we're gonNA build the wall that's how Mexico's GonNa pay for it. They provide the concrete and said this company was going to benefit Actually they're not concrete walls. That's the thing though so a lot of these were based on at this point of course nothing but campaign promises right so it's really has anything. How do you know for sure that something's GonNa come through? Do you want me to tell you how how these stocks performed or do you want me to move onto the next one and then I can tell you however next one the next one. Hey you know what not to be outdone six stocks for trump. How about seven from the Motley fool? Yes that's right. Hotly full wrote an article seven top stocks to buy with trump. Does the president so along the same lines of apple and tax repatriation This analyst said by General Electric. Aw Sorry it's easy to look back now and laugh as could be the financial services manufacturing part of it. They said tax repatriation was I. I don't know why anyway as and worked out a cheesecake factory won't because individual tax cuts are going to result in people eating out more interesting interesting kinder- Morgan Energy Energy Infrastructure Bank of America. Because of like you said Deregulation General Dynamics Defense Cell gene the biotech company because of again deregulation Possible with like a pricing drugs. Isn't that kind of thing. Yeah and then is it right to say Freeport McMoran McMoran. It's the copper mining company But this one because of trump promising one trillion dollars in infrastructure investment. All right last one. I looked at Kiplinger's best stocks for a Donald Trump Presidency Z.. Their first stock pick there was coach bags which later became tapestry The the idea here was consumer spending from tax cuts and a crackdown on counterfeit pitch Chinese goods. Exxon Mobil Energy the GEO group again for private prisons lazy boy because some people sit around and watch Fox News because trump said as one of his campaign promises that he was going to bring manufacturing back to the US and lazy boy already manufactures actress most of their stuff in the US so merck again because Healthcare Company the Drug Company because Trump would not regulate drug prices Susan Theory Smith and Wesson again for guns and then Vulcan materials the largest US producer of construction aggregates such as gravel and crushed stone so again an infrastructure picture brethren right so now. There's a lot of numbers that I could just shouting at you. But going with the street on average How'd you bought these stocks? The average return here is about twenty seven percent but that was because apple was the one that did really well Without apple all the returns would be a lot less ATA Holdings the hospital. The company that manages hospitals also did well with about ninety. Three percent. Return the Motley Defoe and looking at their pigs. Well as you know there is a couple stinkers here for digitally. Ge has done so well cheesecake factory is not done so well. Bank of America is up very twelve hundred forty six percent General Dynamics defense regulator up about thirty seven percent. If you'd gone with the Motley Fool's picks the average return was about forty percent not bad. Remember Kiplinger's again. They were coach. Exxon Mobil Geo Group. Lazy Boy The big winner here was lazy. Boy Really seventy one percent returns followed by Merck which is about sixty percent and vulcan materials about fifty percent so compare that to the SNP which is out over fifty percent since then so that makes a lot of these stop picks look even more. This is super back of the envelope. And so there's these articles did not all come out the day the same day they didn't anyway Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. But Anyway the point is is that I have a broader counterpoint. What's your broader playwright or point is honestly this is just a reminder that no one can predict what is going to happen in the economy especially based on campaign promises? If you remember with Obama Dama he was going to make all the solar and wind stocks. Just shoot through the roof and sure enough. They did do quite well for a little while. That's right and so and so in the same way the people thought with trump well coal stocks are gonNA energy that oil does all this all this is just. It's just going to go through the roof right so I'm just saying that. Republicans equals guns for Babies and Democrats. Means solar panels for senior citizens is an over-simplification that ignores all the aspects that really matter when you're investing investing in a company like do they have good management. Do they allocate capital wisely. Do they have pricing power et Cetera et CETERA. And while you're certainly free to speculate how how anyone president may move the markets and move stocks. It's more fulfilling to invest in the world. You want to live in in not the one you think you're going to get just because of whoever ever is in power right now and that bro is what's up.
How Hedonism Can Change Our Food System
"That'd be surprised to learn that there is a major monopoly when it comes to seeds globally over a third of all seeds are in the hands of just three companies in this mini episode Dr I'm in sits down with mastermind chef and regenerative agriculture advocate Dan Barber together they discussed the importance of seeds why Dan supports a hedonistic approach to changing the way we out there some of the biggest problems we have are are solvable by actually rethinking how we grow food and that's really what you've come to his chef as solving the problem of hedonism you have to go back to the farm and the seed and the soil grow food empowering message I want to go into the seed coat anything permit it because most people don't understand that there's a seed monopoly out there that the centralization of seed creation production and the selling seeds is happening at scale globally and is undermining local farmers and food producers all over the world and most of them around the world are women and small holders or formal what you just said is a front page New York Times story and I don't know why this is the the the seed industry is now consolidate the point that any new variety of seed that has developed sixty eight percent sixty eight percent is in the hands of three companies Nearly seventy percent of the future of our food is in the hands of three companies choose Monsanto and while Monsanto has just been bought by the by Barry there's dupont and then there's Kim China so there's there's three big players now I mean next time we talk that might be too but that is a frightening reality because because if you if you do and I think you should look at seeds as the blueprint for the whole system then you're talking about these companies controlling the system is that just a see that doesn't taste good at I number it's a blueprint for how you're supposed to farm and that's what scares me is that you're you roll out everything from the amount of acreage that should go on the where it should be grown you know forget rotations it's not in that but that whole baked all the way to the processor is what we're talking about that's how baked in it is that's a monopoly knowing what what I find most interesting is that the three companies we just mentioned are not seed companies chemical companies yeah they're creating seeds to sell their close right in like the it's what roundup ready sees the cause and what incentive do you have in that scenario to create a strong seed that doesn't need the chemical intervention I yeah there's not and that's where it's the David and Goliath story it's like that's crazy and people don't understand that because there's so much mixed messaging and because people don't think of food as as C. Driven you know we think too much of it actually as farm and Soil Germany even though guy we should be thinking more about small farms and diversified Zim biodiverse farms in soil and regenerate farms their all important but the seed is the blueprint for how that stuff gets into play and that's where that's why went to the seeds because you can you can have the best farmer like this Guy Klaus Martins mentioned the being I went to visit the most the best rotations the most regenerative and biologically diverse soil if you ever see that doesn't have the genetics to be expressed than what are we talking about you cannot have a delicious Haute or a delicious carrot that has is a bad seed grown in bad soil probably wasn't grown locally probably wasn't picked the right moment none of those things can happen and have a delicious jaw-dropping the experience it's impossible it's so it was beautiful as it when you focus on hedonism it solves the world's problems healthier is a soil that's tickets movement I think it's because while it may seem fringy or esoteric or on the margin it actually is putting a crack in and the whole agriculture system in crack in our thinking about food and when you combine that with these other huge transfer seeing which is the decline of our health the species and the obesity and diabetes epidemics and the decline of our environment and the climate change were experiencing and all the economic burden that comes from that I mean Z.. Global problem that has solutions but they start at the farm and have to rethink that it and really appreciating it through truly great food truly great flavor is one one waited to up end the paradigm that we have now we are now going out to eat more and more and this isn't just white tablecloth residents down for an experience that is unique to the region and and that's where the power of the culture comes into play we have to breed for that and that's what we're trying to do because that's also where the healthiest seeds are gonNA come from the culture but the environment what is specific about the region soil and micro-climate that will make this seed is fits all I want the seat to work the exact same in New York California Michigan Texas Canada Mexico India China and that Boyer the dumbed down the genetics to do that that much I know and flavor is just tamped down everything has tamp down but my point is if you eat the diversity that's required in the organic system you not only have this incredible array of flavors and nutrition at your disposal but you also have the regeneration of the soil which is true sustainability so that's I just think the ticket is this is this deliciousness and this you celebrate Tori hedonistic look at food which is so interesting because that's what cuisines and cultures have taught us over time for thousands of years seeds were saved and exchange as part of community self-preservation sadly between nineteen o three and nineteen eighty three we lost an astonishing ninety three percent of our unique seed varieties this resulted in more than just a lack of selection at the market seemed diversity compliments soil diversity and unique seed varieties allow farmers our chance at a productive harvest this doubles as a form of insurance if one crop doesn't grow as hoped there are others to fall back on Conventional Agriculture Embraces Mono Culture meaning one crops may be grown over thousands of acres and then the same thing is growing again after harvest this depletes the nutrients in the soil and puts the farmer at risk should think threatened that particular crop it also perpetuates a farmer's reliance on government subsidies by cultivating seeds based on flavor and variety and supporting growers who were passionate about regenerative agriculture not only will our food tastes better but we will begun to shift food system and exciting and positive new

cytokines in sales and a patent get this on composition for body fat reduction there's one for improving muscle atrophy in older adults Sherri I like to be a little bit of a skeptic here how can this one simple nutrient magically do all of this happened is asked to FX given so many benefits I mean really yeah I know it's it's sounds amazing too good to be true but it really is true many of the studies that I'm referencing here they're available on top of that these are reputable clinical studies conducted by leading researchers around the world it really backed the benefits about the Stanton by the way muscle output is better with **** handed to and this comes from after that the research published in the international journal of sports nutrition November two thousand eleven this is another study done with cyclists they took four milligrams about this amp and it was a small study but very positive showing that cyclist improved their trial time by two minutes in a twenty kilometer bike race that's a meaningful improvement in a race like this and the researchers said that they also bring back more efficiently which makes sense based on this research purity can actually make the claim that after the attacks will promote and improve power output in your muscles I mean I tell people asked to affect in his strength and power its transformative if you like energy and this is found in other studies Q. like one that looked at hand grip strength so much great information just tuning in we're talking with pharmacist and author sherry Turkle is here I'm your host mark Larson on this hand grip study the you mentioned I understand there this involved one of twelve milligram dose and they saw a ninety three percent boost in hand strength and people who struggled with well it tennis elbow now that's a big deal but our listeners might be saying well okay maybe I don't play tennis with what about me what does it mean for me right right think about that I ninety three percent increase in a person who has some repetitive stress in their although it's been almost doubling in hand strength so just think about all the things that you do in your daily life picking up groceries your kids your grandkids gripping the steering wheel of a car playing golf or tennis gardening or riding a bike a doubling of grip strength makes a big difference I mean when you take after them then you get stronger you feel stronger you have more energy and current if you play sports your place stronger so to me it's really quite extraordinary that's great information to the sherry I want to share a couple more testimonials to caught my attention out of the so many right there on the purity website again these are unsolicited these are from real people here's one from Rick he is a

a month now I can see the difference in my energy level I now have more energy feel better since taking this product I can actually see a difference in my skin as well I'm a smoker who has smoking lines around my mouth but the lines have diminished about fifty percent overall I am so thrilled with my energy level I love this product just couple of samples from the real people who have responded impurities website and sherry I'm looking at the list of patents again on this Astor xanthan compound this is where the the science research backs up we're talking about this is just flat out amazing in a sherry a lot of people out there are going to think at what I'm gonna say her sounds a little bit odd but you said before the show this supplement may even help people drive a car better or use the computer more comfortably Amanda you can't come on how does this happen it sounds funny but back may actually help in these areas and here's why one of the interesting things about after Stanton is that it's a relative of vitamin a and we know the vitamin a is good price good provision **** and that is to ask the sentence actually been shown to fight oxidation in eye tissue sight distance study where they found a forty six percent improvement in the measurement called depth perception that depth perception doctor ability to determine distances between objects are basically to see in

as a capsule it taken orally this patent also covers this as you say this ingredient is proven to reduce wrinkles and not just by a little we're talking a dramatic amount what's going on with this yeah I know it's it's fascinating a huge benefit people want to look younger I know I do and and I've noticed significant benefits since I started taking it but it's a science here that really shines
