Tired of robocalls? The FCC is still trying to stop them
"The us about twenty percent of calls to cell phones and forty percent to landlines are robocalls many of them scams and tomorrow is the deadline for voice service providers including some phone companies to show the federal communications commission. What steps. they're taking to stop robocalls. Brad reeves is a professor of computer science at north carolina state university. He said the fcc is telling these companies to be on the lookout for clear signs of fraud for example if your phone company and you have a customer that is sending hundreds of thousands of calls per day but almost none of them get answered. Doesn't necessarily mean you're doing anything illegal but it certainly suspicious and you should be looking into it. So yeah i the fcc has a new system right like technical system that can help weed out the robocalls so the fcc is mandating that all providers either now or within a couple of years implemented set of technical standards called stir and shaken. This is something that changes. How calls are made to add a little token to indicate where the call came from and which provider was responsible for it. So you can think of this kind of like the post office putting a postmark on a stamp. The reason this is important. Is that when you receive a robo call and maybe you call your phone company to complain about it. They have to figure out where that call came from. And before sir shaking it was a laborious process that took days in most cases. Do you think that this is gonna work. I wouldn't bet on it. There are just too many loopholes and ways to bypass the

Joe Biden Is America's Greatest National Security Threat
"It has been twenty years yesterday. The anniversary of nine eleven which is a moment's a day in history that i think changed all of our lives instead assan. Maybe even a different trajectory in life and it was difficult to look back on twenty years and certainly it made it even more difficult with the way that we were led out of afghanistan over the last month by the biden administration. Our first question is for mark levin and sad. We'd like you dr. Sebastian gorka to be our one responder mark. What is our greatest national security threat today. joe biden. i'm not cleaning. I am not kidding. The people he is surrounded himself with a disaster. He's got a secretary of defense that helped create the isis caliphate. He's got a sector stay. Who comes out of the ivy league. Schools really doesn't know a damn thing same with his national security adviser so when you look among those people it's absolutely a disaster. The idea that we've american citizens in enemy territory the idea that we would leave afghan patriots. Who fought with us in enemy territory. The idea that twenty years after nine eleven the taliban will be stronger and bigger control the entire country about ghanistan with the backing of al-qaeda and china and russia iran sees this north korea sees is all of our enemies see this we are in dire dire
Student surveillance and privacy protection dilemma in the modern age
"New technologies are expanding school's ability to keep students under surveillance inside and outside the classroom during the school year and after it ends. Schools have moved quickly to adopt a dizzying array of new tools. These include digital learning products that capture and store student data anonymous tip lines encouraging students to report on each other and software that monitors students emails and social media posts even when they are written from home. Steadily growing numbers of police officers stationed in schools can access this information. Compounding the technologies power advocates of these schools argue that they improve student safety and learning outcomes but this article reveals that the evidence for this argument is in fact quite sin. Moreover policymakers have failed to consider important countervailing considerations most notably student privacy and its significance for child development unequal impact particularly for poor black and lgbtq youth and potential liability for school administrators using north carolina's public schools. As a case study this article that makes three contributions to the burgeoning literature on the surveillance state i. It provides a comprehensive typology that shows the full range of students surveillance. Second it identifies key procedural substantial objections to students surveillance that should be but are not taken into account. By policymakers third it proposes principles to guide the selection implementation and oversight of student surveillance. I'm gonna stop there. This is a very lengthy. Pdf document that goes well into all sorts of things that were not going to be able to have time to talk about this evening. How ever. I want to mention the first thing i noticed was there was no statement following the last statement that i just read which was third. It proposes principles to guide the selection implementation oversight students surveillance. I expected as a human being to read another line that said fourth. We have recommendations for this not to be implemented at all but of course that is mysteriously missing.

Biden slips into political quicksand amid Haitian migrant buildup
"Starting off the show. Tonight we have a discussion about joe biden. Apparently he's doing more deportations than trump specifically deporting more asylum seekers than trump did well. Yeah we don't have the other categories of deportations as the numbers that That we came across. And it's a shocking number. I don't know the entire number. But i have here the us Moved over six thousand. Haitian asylum-seekers from the border at del rio so that's just haitian asylum-seekers just recently with you know the whip's did see that. Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children. He says the. Us government

The Taliban Must Deal With These Leaders to Avoid Civil War
"Jona goldberg wrote a great book. A couple years ago we talked about the big man theory. In every failed state big man emerges usually the guy with the most guns skinny teenagers and maybe out of that state grows. Do you expect a civil war in afghanistan admiral after a period of time when these tribes fall back to what these tribes have always done which fight each other when they don't fight the west certainly. That's the long in unfortunate history of afghanistan. The taliban are still you know two three weeks into this thing playing their version of taliban two point oh. I saw some shots yesterday of connie the minister of the interior. Who's who has between five and ten million dollar bounty on his head depending on who you talk to a pure terrorist. A dark figure yet. He's walking around kabul effectively handing out candy in the streets. He's being kind and charming and smiling. That's kind of the face of the taliban at the moment if they keep that up. I think they've got a shot at avoiding of major breakdown if they revert to their old practices. It's civil war right around the corner. Because the northern alliance's that big trips to the north. They don't want to be ruled by the pashtoons in the south Unfortunately i would suspect. That is the future of afghanistan. we ought to care for the reasons we just talked about you. Which are that leads to ungoverned spaces that leads to the rise of al qaeda that provides safehaven to slavic state That's what we need to avoid being surprised on all the more reason that we maintain an intelligence capability in afghanistan. As difficult as. that's going to be.

And i'm waiting in a tow line. That's like you know fifteen cars long or something and at the last minute. I realized that. I'm in a coins only lane. And there's no way to get across the traffic shredding. The doors no choice of what to do with no this short notice. I had no way of pulling this kind of cash together. So i realized that it was also a toll lane with. We're one of those things comes down so it's not like i can just go through it you're gonna have to run the rapids as they say exactly. The rapid only got the green light. Yeah so i waited until the guy in front of me through his whatever. Three hundred quarters or whatever and when that thing went up florida florida buzzes went off. There was mayhem everywhere. Jamaica's no one followed me. I was very lucky. I i don't know how. I did it but i made it under one of the best kept secrets in the world. Who was the trace. You nobody nobody. My question is do they. Take a picture of my license. Is there some way that i could like. Send the two dollars in. Because i don't want them to send something to my house. 'cause my husband's going to be so mad so you have a guilty conscience about this really do but i don't wanna get caught in the i'm honest and then they're gonna charge me forty dollars for doing this right. You may in fact be opening a pandora's box by confessing to the crime may be subjecting yourself to a toll evaders find. They'll take the two from you and then they'll come to your house rescue. I was certainly let. Here's what i would do okay. I would let sleeping dogs lie. Oh i mean if you really feel if you real feel really feels some compunction to pay up if the toll is is two dollars the next time you get in line and for the next eight times you get in line for nine quarters in. Yeah exactly okay penalize. You live in not send the gate up. It'll be another stoop that just put in too much money. The gate will go up. And within two months you'll have satisfied your conscience. You'll satisfy the conwell pennsylvania. Would they come get me..

I've got a A hundred eighty pound dog a great pyramids when moses sits in the truck with me over the passenger side He's got his feet down on the floor and has bought up on the seat where it belongs and his head hanging over the dashboard. Well he had a full stomach. The other day and improves bumpy road. He blew beats. Cookies feud on the dashboard Not into not into the events into the vent into the defrost events. Yeah oh my god. I took it down to the shade tree mechanic and dry squeaky up most of the honks. Yeah and i said what can we do because this mel Yeah i mean it's bad enough when humans but gusting yeah. We do know why it's so did did you tell them what it was Yeah did refuse to work on it. I i asked him what he can do to fix it and he said well. I can take the whole dashboard out yeah. I don't think you have to go to that extreme. Okay here. here's my here's my thought as he was talking. You know a couple of hundred dollars to do that kind of work. And i was thinking should i do that. Pay him to do the work or should i sell the truck to somebody who has a real bad. Should i get an airsick bag to my dog. Gee really what can i do about this. If i'd be obviously the stuff either went down the vent or it stayed on the dashboard. Because right right but not of it. I mean some of its state so so. Suffice it to say that we didn't stay on the dashboard went down the vent right. That vent looks like You know the thing that goes into the vacuum cleaner that you have you vacuum your rug with if you look at that. That's what that shape like. And it comes down to a circular connector at the end to which a hose attached. That comes from the heat box and the entire dashboard doesn't have to be taken out to get at this. Oh you can take off the glovebox. Fortunately he was. He was not driving right because he was sitting in the passenger seat. If you've been driving this would have been a bigger problem. Yeah so you have to do is take the dash the glove compartment out. Okay that's easy to do and you'll be looking right at this thing and it looks like a funnel where surgical mask and clubs because it's gonna be gross isn't it. It's going to be. But i don't think it's that hard because once you take out the glovebox you will see the end of this funnel shaped thing. And you'll it's got a hose clamp around it with the hose that goes to it and to loosen it up have a barrel ready and then you could actually flush it out. Well you can take the whole thing off. You can take the hose off you can take off this deduct and you can probably clean the thing out. Pretty well actually. I don't think there's any harm in actually pouring water down there. it'll just come right out the bottom. Yeah okay onto my carpet. No you'll have a bucket down there. Okay the bucket down there. Pour some water in and you'll just flush baby right. Would you what. I what i would do is line the floor actually with a with a plastic bag and let this stuff pour onto the plastic bag and puddle in the middle of it. Then you can pick the whole thing up and dump it. Put another bag in there and do that but boy it must have been pretty bad. It's not as bad as seemed at the time. I think it's i don't know you riding pretty bad but i think you can clean it up will okay. Good luck you're going to need. They were later one. Eight eight eight car talk or one.

"north american" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW
"Is sponsored by ny dig and produced and distributed by coins. What's going on guys. It is friday august thirteenth who friday the thirteenth and the theme of today is all the bullish news. You might have missed if you like me or intensely watching the floor fight in washington over the last week or so or if unlike me you just have life and other interests either way. Here's your breakdown of bullish news and let's start right in with the title story. Five publicly traded north american. Bitcoin mining companies increase their bitcoin output significantly in july producing eighteen hundred to bitcoin which is about a fifty nine percent increase on the month before these firms include marathon digital riot blockchain argo blockchain bit farm and hut eight. How did these firms increased their output. So much well. It wasn't an increase in the power that they were throwing it mining but instead the fallout of the massive downward difficulty adjustment from the month before for those unfamiliar bitcoins. Difficulty adjustment is a process. That happens every two thousand sixteen blocks or roughly every two weeks in which the bitcoin protocol automatically changes the difficulty of the puzzles solved by minors. If more miners are coming online it can adjust the difficulty up making it more difficult to win blocks. If on the other hand minors leave the network. It adjust the difficulty down that downward adjustment incentivizes more miners to come online to capture the now easier to achieve rewards and so on and so forth short. It's a mechanism for keeping the bitcoin network security and functioning impervious to exhaustiveness shocks. I've said before. And i'll say it again. I think difficulty adjustment is one of the most elegant and often under appreciated aspects of the bitcoin network literally automating market forces to regulate and regularize the security being deployed for the network at the beginning of july the mining difficulty adjusted down twenty seven point nine percent which was by far the largest amount in history. This was an adaptation to chinese miners. Leaving the network. After china's june bannings knocked out a significant part of global hash power. Remember this time around. When minus started talking about banning bitcoin mining our first instinct was to dismiss it as yet another. China bans bitcoin story. That wouldn't really amount to much. But when the chinese vice premier himself spread that message and then when provinces started actually implementing full shutdowns including in both coal powered as well as hydro-powered areas. It became clear that we were in the midst of a total transformation in bitcoin mining the beneficiaries very clearly have been north american miners month over month. June july riot grew eighty two percent marathon. Sixty six point. Four two percent bit farm forty seven point five percent eight fifty three point eight five percent and argo thirty four point seven three percent now. Of course this wasn't entirely unexpected. We knew that. When china miners went off line the global balance of hash power would shift west but it is still remarkable just to see how dramatic impact it had so. Why is this bullish while a number of reasons first of all. There's the overall energy mixture of the bitcoin network mining in china particularly in regions like inner. Mongolia often used coal as its primary energy source whereas north american mining operations are comparatively clean to the extent that it matters to the bitcoin industry to shift its energy mix to relatively more renewables. The shift away from china is demonstrably. Good thing i know. We don't care about him but elon. Musk made this exact point at the b word conference a few weeks ago. There is another point though as well. It wasn't an especially loud fudd this cycle but one of the risks of the decentralisation of bitcoin network but some have historically pointed to is state capture of minors in china with a preponderance of hash. Power in china could the ccp exert enough forced. Actually harm the network. There were many if not most in this industry who were pretty dubious proposition but still it was a long lived multi-year negative narrative that has now been completely extinguished in short for multiple reasons. Hash power leaving. China is a significant net positive for bitcoin. One question to watch for is where the mining machines themselves will end up. How many of the companies previously in china will fold. How many will redeploy elsewhere. And when those redeployments happen will they be in the us or closer to china kazakhstan russia. Still.

"So we're following your down fifty percent on your initial investment right. Well then. let's say you wanted to cut your losses and sold it when bitcoin hit forty five k. Queen bees is now going to issue you a ten ninety nine. That says you made fifteen thousand dollars. Forty five k. Being fifteen thousand dollars more than thirty k. that the bitcoin is worth when it was transferred in when in fact you bought that bitcoin at sixty k. So you're forty five k. sale actually represents a fifteen thousand dollar loss. Not a fifteen thousand dollar gain. The issue is that coin. Base doesn't know what you bought that bitcoin at just that you sold it for more than when coin base. I saw it. There are solutions to this. But they're complicated so here. We are tax. Bits a unicorn and big congrats another unicorn and a convincing. One at that is falcon x. The company raised a fifty million dollars series. B round in march valuing in the firm at six hundred seventy five million and. Now they're back for a series c at evaluation of three point seven five billion as always the thing to ask with fundraising announcements. Like this is who's involved and the interesting. One in falcons case. Is that american express venture arm got in also interesting. Is there report on where institutional interest is going there. Ceo said in an interview quote institutions. Were coming in with bitcoin as an inflation hedge but now he says quote. They're going a lot deeper. There is new interest in theory. I'm definitely a lot of questions. On defy and yield generation. One more interesting note from that block interview in march. The ceo had told the block that he expected large hedge funds. I e five hundred million dollars or larger in size to make up as much as thirty percent of their customers and now they say they're trending towards that goal so just to recap. We've got a major migration of hash power out of china which is a potentially challenging area for bitcoin in the first place north american firms benefiting from that point base having a monster quarter more institutions getting involved and crypto companies becoming unicorns left. And right so yeah no matter. What's going on in this regulatory sphere. Which by the way. We're gonna talk a little bit more again about tomorrow on the weekly recap. It is clear that the bull mood is here in a big way. So i hope you're having a great friday looking forward to a wonderful weekend until tomorrow guys be safe and take care of each other piece..

"So what else bullish might you have missed. Well let's talk about coin bases monster quarter to one of the things that's different now. That coin basis public is that every quarter. we're going to get some deep dive. Insights into how the crypto markets are doing expressed through the lens of one of the. us's leading exchanges. Let's go through their numbers. I and these come from a shareholder letter published on tuesday point base made one point nine three billion dollars in revenue in quarter to. That's up from one point. Five four billion in quarter one at four hundred seventy six point four million in quarter four of last year of that one point eight two billion was retail transaction revenue and one hundred and two million was institutional revenue volume however tells a different story and also shows just how much more coin based makes from its retail practice in quarter two quin saw four hundred sixty two billion dollars in total volume which was split three hundred and seventeen billion for institutional versus one hundred and forty five billion for retail. So even though they made less on institutional it represented a much bigger portion of volume for the first time each made up a bigger percentage of trade volume than btc twenty six percent versus twenty four percent and overall institutional trading volume was up forty seven percent compared to quarter one. The number of monthly transacting users went from six point. One million in quarter one to eight point eight million in quarter two all of that said the company did point out that july was significantly down from june and that they anticipated the quarter three would be consequently lower still. It was quite a showing in coin basis first full quarter as a public company and importantly in a world where perception is reality. These numbers smashed wall street's estimates but even on top of that there were some interesting nuggets and one of the spiciest quimby said that ten of the top one hundred hedge funds in the world based on assets under management are now customers. We didn't get the exact companies but they did mention a few customers by name including elon. Musk pnc bank. Spacex tesla third point and wisdom tree. Third point is daniel lobes firm which has been significantly increasing. Its presence in crypto and speaking of pnc bank reports are that the fifth largest bank in the us is planning to start offering crypto services to clients with the support of coin base. Pnc bank didn't confirm coin desk sources but it seems like they might be on the path to becoming the latest big trad via domino to fall and speaking of institutions neuberger berman a four hundred billion dollar asset manager has expanded its fun strategy to include bitcoin and that theory derivatives as well as other investment vehicles. They're calling it. A hedge crypto currency volatility fund. This was not the first. We've heard from that firm in january. Steve iceman who is both the firm's managing director and author of the short said that he was staying out of bitcoin quote. I stay out of it. I don't understand it but the firm also wrote a report in the spring titled the bitcoin experiment which called it. Quote a phenomenon worth watching closely. All right all right so on our journey of bullish things we've got hash rate migration. We've got coin based performing and institutions. Coming in. what else. Well how about we throw some big fundraising on the pile. Tax bit has raised one hundred and thirty million dollars for a total valuation of one point. Three three billion joining the ranks of crypto unicorns. This one makes just a ton of sense. I mean we just spent two weeks. Debating crypto tax reporting requirements in the senate and in any version of that bill. There were clearly going to be some new obligations on the part of exchanges. What's more the issue with tax reporting for exchanges isn't as simple as whether they're issuing ten ninety nine or not. There are serious issues with accuracy because of the specific nature of crypto assets. So here's an example. Let's say that you what. Bitcoin at the top at sixty k. On gemini then you transferred it into your coin base account when bitcoin was about thirty k. So just so we're following your down fifty percent on your initial investment right. Well then. let's say you wanted to cut your losses and sold it when bitcoin hit forty five k. Queen bees is now going to issue you.

"Because we know those diet cokes or that beer or whatever is part of building that human relationship and that's so important to build that human relationship every salesperson should be taking every chance to have meaningful conversations with their with their customer right. That's where the goal has to be. So how can we still get the metrics. How can we still get the reports without putting burden on the salesperson. And so because i lived it i know what i needed and i know from talking to everybody in the industry that i that i know they go through the exact same thing so the first things that i you know that i do is okay. How do we make it. So you don't ever have to manually put in via customer information. Don i bet you. That's the biggest barrier right. There is. I'm not gonna sit there and put in every single there in my phone all right. So that's easy. That's super easy. you know. There's business card scanners that integrate with so at the end of a trade show. I would just grab up all my business cards and Either during the show. If there's good wifi or else back the hotel room and i would just click. Click click click. Click into ours. They're all in the sierra right. And now my manager knows that i met all those people. Yeah right go look at the report and don't have to save typing in. Met talked about all that. Yeah that's right that's it and then the second thing i do is say okay. Well what first of all which what. What is your pipeline time right. You know some companies. It's three years some as three days. So that's really important is is what is that pipeline length because that really depends if we're feeding the customer or if you're really they know what they want and you're going to sell it right away at that those are two very different things go through pipeline when you talk about pipeline are you talking about a prospect pipeline of when they go from meeting you at the trade show to buying their product..

"And i think it's exciting that you put this together and and that that yet you're out here Making a way for people to connect and see what's going on and i. I really don't think we're going to go completely back to not doing what we're doing now. I think we've got some form of a hybrid and so as you do that. Tell us a little bit about so. You've got north american anger. you're connected and some of the industries. What else do you do. Your business and How do you do it. And what what puts you in that role to go from there. But before we get to that i i do want to ask you one question. This is interesting. Because i we hired In my f- career we hired a lot of people that start out in equine studies. Okay went to school very much like yourself. They love horses. They want to do horses and they don't want to say they in sales but they ended up in sales they were like and i always used to ask him when they finally accepted the job. You know some. I interviewed some just got sent me your company and and i always ask you know. You probably never thought you were going to be in sales. What brought you there and and did it. Did you have a different opinion after you got in it than before. Sometimes sales is not always the most right Looked upon kindly courier. So yeah and and. That's a really great question. I think in part it's a failure in our education systems that that's not a job right rear and four either and no no guidance counselor ever said well you could be a sales person but i would say the majority of jobs how the sales aspect so i think that's kind of weird failure within our education system because you know i remember through high school taking these tests about what i should be in you know and i just knew i wanted to be connected to growing things i just knew. That's what i wanted. But i also really love people and so everything on those tests would appointed towards being a salesperson right. So yeah wasn't it took a while to to figure out. I worked for a large animal. Veterinarian i read out of college and i realized that i really like the people aspect And and i guess that's really what drew me towards sales. And then when i started to to meet sales people like this is amazing unit to go travel around talk to people..

"Different things that you do so tell the audience a little bit about yourself how you came to be in this role that you're in in what you do for your costumers. Yeah for sure. So i was one of those little girls that wanted to be a farmer really badly and so when i went to school so we just had a small Avi farm with my parents and we actually lived up up. North in the muskoka is which is kind of like the adirondacks of new york. Some like that I ended up going to college for agriculture. And i i specialized in ecuador studies and fell in love with agriculture part. So so that's kind of where it all began and i've worked in agribusiness my pretty much my entire adult career and I was a i a salesperson for a very long time and then i became a sales manager which was very Very interesting in my career because as you know as a salesperson you have good sales managers bad sales managers and So i had a dream of what i wanted to be as a sales manager and so i did my best to create an environment for my sales people Rather than giving them jobs to do to waste their time so that was very important to me as a sales manager and then i decided a few years ago that i wanted to go out on my own and helped more companies and And i really enjoyed traveling. And i went to a twenty seven. Twenty nine farm shows a year across north america. So i developed a really great network of people that i really really love actually sure and And so when when When cova hit. I was grounded and now the borders closed little more difficult for me to travel and not impossible. But it's a little more difficult and So that's when north american ag was born I read a book Selling in tough times. I can't think of the author right now and right at the very beginning in march and and i just was. You know there's gotta be a way. I really relied on face to face meetings and face to face events and i. I am a handshake industry person. I love humans so it was very strange. And i didn't know what to do But i realized that my friends my circle of people that you know that i've grown to to know over. The years are all having the same problem. So i thought what what can we do. A company to serve the industry in a way to bring it together. And try to help through this Do this situation. And how can we network without being in person and And so that's where my spotlight videos. Come from that's where my podcast comes from. And that's really what the whole purpose of north american aga's it's to provide a resource for For farmers for producers for People in agribusiness so they can find what they need and and kind of feed you know feed with what they need in the industry sure and then also providing excellent content for less what you know connected me when i found your video or a blog.

I know you've got farmer cut on followers as well but the focus on agribusiness on what we do and how important it is and and bringing to light some of those Difficulties and we'll talk a little about those.
