New York Sues Trump Over ‘Anarchist’ Label

"Can't you know pretty much put up with anything you know, for reasonable amount of time with a little patience there. But when you start messing with people's money, now you've got a problem in New York City is no exception. A legal battle underway now, which includes New York and at least two other cities against the Trump administration for its threat to cut off federal funding to what the administration calls anarchist jurisdictions. We're talking billions at stake here. Julia Papa here to explain tonight. Mayor de Blasio calls the anarchist designation for New York City, a figment of President Trump's troubled imagination. It's not anything we've seen from any Democratic or Republican administration ever before, and it's madness. The city is joining Seattle and Portland in a lawsuit challenging an administration effort to withhold federal grants. Estimated for New York City to be about $12 Billion. Corporation counsel Jim Johnson says this designation was being memorialized. We're not gonna wait additional times for them to embed this provision. In any other grants or any other opportunities for the city. He says The city will argue that Congress, not the executive branch, decides on funding. Julia

Trump, Biden look to seal the deal in final debate

"That's coming up tonight. The final opportunity. For President Trump to gain some ground and take over in the polls when it comes to his race, with Joe Biden for election coming up in less than two weeks. And getting ready for this debate tonight. Let's turn it over to Dr Jerry Schuster, professor of presidential rhetoric over at the University of Pittsburgh, Jerry, Welcome back to Katie Kay Radio. Good to have you Thank you. It's good to be with you. Great talking to you, too. When you look at the debate tonight, what do you see as the biggest challenge for Biden this evening? Well, first of all, he has to be ready. For the President to try to get him off dead center meaning, say some things that will tip the balance and perhaps Take Biden off stride if I were part of the president's strategists Team. Basically, what I would do would be fined some key terms dorky slogans. Just quick blips. And on go after Biden to get him off. You know, it's the thought process He can't allow himself to be, you know? Littered from saying what he needs to say, and he also can't afford to allow the audience to see that the president has upset him. Not it works both ways. You know, I'm sure the president strategist I have told him Maura than once. Don't stay with the message. Stay with a message. Talk about the economy, etcetera, etcetera. The positive Accomplishments you've achieved while you were in office. All he has to do is play Trump the typical way that he does. Every time he's in public start Name calling. Get off Dead Center. Go after Hunter Biden that kind of thing. Do you see Hunter and turned into a free for all? Do you see the hunter issue being that issue that could put Biden on tilt? No, I don't. But that doesn't mean that that couldn't knowing the kind of family man that Biden is. The mere mention of the fact and mirror thought process that is associated with that that the public might believe Then what Of the Trump team is suggesting occurred did in fact occur. Could be enough to set Joe Biden off and Biden has to be clear that he can't allow himself to be deterred from getting off track and focusing on the specifics of the campaign. Biden needs to hold serve. Trump really needs to gain some ground. What does he do to gain that ground tonight? Well, stay on message he has to. If he plays there, all the Trump typically has played out, especially with you know, going after from the first debate through A 60 minute debate that will are not debate that interview that we'll see on Sunday night. All we have to do are all he has to do is just Play that role and you're going to find out that he he doesn't act presidential. The general electorate would like to see him play that role for a change. At least talk about what specific this he's going to do with regard to the pandemic. He hasn't said anything yet. What role do you think the muted microphones will play during this debate tonight, where each of them are going to have their microphones muted for the first two minutes of responding to the questions that are asked on the topics that are chosen? No, I think they can both be quiet for two minutes. But after that it's still going to be a free for all. You know, that's two minutes out of out of a cake, so that leaves from both six minutes. To expand on that. And that's when Biden is gonna speak over and, you know, do the kinds of things that only Trump can do Best to Biden. Do you see either one of them? Trying to speak when they're Mike, sir. Muted, though. I see that with the president more than I do If I knw what Yu starts with Biden if Biden goes off script, Yeah, I see Biden doing it, too. Do you see the tax return issue being a major issue for Trump to defend? No, I don't. Will it be discussed? Yes. Well, the economics of the country be discussed. Yes, but I don't see the tax issue. Um, mostly because others You know, it goes back to what we said so many times when you talk about mass alone, Siri the first thing I'm concerned about my health And my my family's health, My safety, my welfare, your taxes and what you did with your tax. This is between you and the IRS. So I want to know what you're going to do to get that vaccine coming my way. So much more

COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia

"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it. Just another one of the many mysteries that still surround covid nineteen

"You guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean.

"Start, we don meltdown in Madrid thaw shocked shocked by we'd be so good and Writers. Joining us is Alex Kirkland Alex. Let's get right into it. What happened. I mean what happened was a disastrous five minutes of POCO from. Real. Madrid that I saw from them was one of the worst. I can remember to be honest it was a defensive horror show off against the shack talk team who let's not forget what may say six first choice players and a number of substitute says well, row without second reynolds the CAP team at it was just they fell off the conceding that I go they went completely to pieces gossamer spend back in the second off and pulled it back to three to lake your ruled out but that one make any once again just how bad they were in that I just bad. The. Made. Some big decisions with a view towards the classical at the weekend. He leaves out and he got lauded for leaving out crews and Ben's. Alex, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt a tiny bit because I say, Hey, it shocked are minus six. You're at home you're motivated because you had a stinker last week and against God and deserve to lose. Maybe this is a Good Game Benza and crows today off right. The problem is when Bensimon doesn't play the team, just don't function in attack a loop. Yovich again, last night he had one pray tame header on saw and that was the throughout the day and he was. As. Roma, chasing the comeback which tells you everything you need to know cross you could understand may be giving him a a great by the problem is with Raimondo ready missing can you really leave out these other subpoenas if the of the team nine know the Ramos isn't always a nice consistent defend that but you have to heat has been that he's got a slight meet problems. He wouldn't have let the game just get away from the way didn't stop and the this. I mean Rafael Veran. Dreadful and this is the session dreadful Champions League game in a row for him because let's not forget he was to blame but both goals they began. In the summer alongside etta mealy Tout Stewart looks nothing like being worth fifty million euros around with Chip Light Volume Marcello I love Marcelo it to be honest like. An ex player he kind of jumped the shark awhile ago. s the Monday was laid out. Position was appropriate. You want to go away with any any credit on the right hand side courtois, dot them out of trouble a couple times it wasn't just the tall maitree chances and took them. Three one on ones the coach manager save over the course of the nineteen minutes. So it could have been even worse I mean less season they lost. The game of the Champions League in Paris they had a really rocky start. This is didn't. On yeah, they came back. They weren't playing Schachter. Owner but let me finish this. Season so I don't think. A rocky a shaky start like this one is anything new for Sodano, for the club however I you Janis making mistakes I think the players only are not up to the task mentally physically and technically as a group not forget didn't sign anyone in the summer. A few of the players left Bahamas pressure is really under Alex because he's done of course and everything that he's achieved as a player and manager that club is huge but that's two defeats in a row obese two different competition, and then the classic the weekend will happen if they lose is three in a row. Or do you still think that still has enough credit in the bank to two last regardless of what happens on the weekend? Of course, he's calling credit in the bank. He's got more credit than anyone because what you've done by do you think he doesn't situation is somewhat unique because even though he's won two titles as a coach, even though you on those three genders lease in a row, there are still some nagging questions I think and legitimate questions about aspects of of the jump that he does and some people and least includes people at the club at Rome Madrid at the. Question exactly how good coaches to spy everything that he's not in terms of trophies one I don't think there's any risk of him being sacked in the short sample, but we'd see Dan would say is that you can never entirely ruled out the rescue him deciding to walk away if things aren't going well, and if he feels like he's not the right man for the joke is surprised when away lost time having just wonder champion slate a milk expect that to happen right now by. Signing the we can discount entirely. This is very different. Coach doesn't necessarily need you get. He doesn't need it in the same way that other coaches to. Feels like I say he's not the right map for the talk. If you will I I completely agree that he would walk like getting say like Oh goodness can go I mean. Again he said like tomorrow is GonNa be Sunny. Who who can come up with you feel I listen I would point out that when he walked away last time, it's because two of his superstars neither films there anymore both of through. Hissy, fits through toys out of the Pram after the game and he said I. Have enough of that.

HB has done wonderful things that a man this is this is up there on the list. A cz. Well, they keep raising the bar. I mean, it seems like every month you hear about HB doing something wonderful for its employees, which have really been, you know, on the front lines during this pandemic, Of course, grocery stores considered essential businesses. They need to be open. But you know, they're putting in long hours. You think back at you know, over the summer when you had the rush on toilet paper and hand sanitizer and other essential items and the fact that you know there are long lines at the grocery store that a constantly restock shelves, headbutt limits on certain meet items. I mean, it was just a mess, and these HB employees, you know, kept smiles on their faces. All the while and it's just what a great company you know, HB is to take care of their employees that way, And throughout this pandemic, it just strikes me. Every time I go into an HBO, you know, I wear my mask and I'm even more of Ah. Freak about trying to avoid the corona virus than most I I put on gloves. I by pulling up. I put on gloves and a mask going into the GPS, so that if I'm touching the shopping Carter from touchdown items, I'm even extra careful, But I think about every one of those employees inside of an HB on and obviously a convenience store or any of these places that serve the public. You were working in a place where throughout the day during your shift, hundreds and hundreds of fellow San Antonians in Bear County citizens are coming into your place of business, breathing the air with you and just do simple math.

Trump holds rally in North Carolina as Obama blasts him during Philadelphia visit

"Trump and Joe Biden meet in Nashville tonight, squaring off in their second and final debate. Trump prepared by holding a rally in North Carolina, where he went after familiar targets like Congressman Adam. So, Adam shift this guy, the watermelon head, I say. No, he's like a watermelon. Joe Biden has been off the campaign trail for much of the week preparing for this debate. So former president Obama campaigned on his behalf, holding a rally in Philadelphia, saying President Trump doesn't take the job seriously and shown any interest in doing the work. Or helping anybody but himself and his friends. We're treating the presidency. Like a reality show that he can use to get attention.

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants

"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate. And again, the idea is the long leave the money and means completely tax free for ten years out of step seven years you pay are you're eighty five percent excuse but I know that that number surprises me would you say this this this one, hundred, billion, his far more than was estimated when the legislation was passed. No I think it's probably rolling out slower than A lot of folks had hoped and as you can imagine, the vast majority of those deals that have been done thus far has been around real estate and real estate redevelopment certainly in the healthcare sector I think we're still the only firm out here. That's a healthcare focus opportunities on fund it. You know it we've been the only ones to my knowledge. So we're you know we're granted here, but we have yet even break a billion, but we're that's our goal.

Justice Department Hits Google With Antitrust Lawsuit

"Few weeks ago we were all on pins and needles expecting a lawsuit from the US federal government against Google and on Tuesday after a fourteen month. Long investigation that lawsuit arrived the US Department. Of Justice and eleven states have filed suit against Google arguing that the company has used unfair practices to preserve its search and search advertising monopoly. Here to break all the details down with me, records Peter Kafka Hey Peter hit Teddy. So how a deal is this is a very big deal. This is the most consequential antitrust action against a big Tech Company that we've seen since nineteen ninety, eight I don't know what you are doing in one thousand, nine, hundred, eight I was actually still falling technology news back. Then that's when that's when the US government sued. And we've gone twenty plus years, and now we've got the government's suing Google and we knew that this was coming for a while right and we talked about on the show with Shrink Afari a few weeks ago we didn't have specifics we didn't exactly know. What the lawsuit was going to allege that Google's done you've spent the morning digging in talking to a bunch of parties reading the suit tell me what the main argument, the US federal government is making. So I'm going to caveat this. This is the beginning of a process that's going to take years, and so the initial complaint from from the US government. Is the initial complaint it is going to change over time through discovery. Okay. people are going to add to this. It's going to be a living document as we say, but the big picture here is is this to start with the US government saying Google has an illegal monopoly and search that it maintains it focuses mostly on the idea of Google paying. Mobile, phone manufacturers like apple like Samsung fees, either directly or indirectly to give it pole position for its for search engine which then makes it search engine dominant, and then it gives it a an unfair advantage in search ads. So it starting with search and adding on search ads in it is mostly focused on the idea of Google spending billions of dollars a year to give itself, prime? Placement. Your phone and yeah and to the average person of sitting here thinking what does this case kind of boil down to it's basically that Not just that Google is too big right but that Google has unfairly made itself. So essential in all of our lives. That's the overall thrust of all the antitrust and all the tech reform conversations we're having, which is all of these tech companies, Google and facebook, and Amazon, and apple are have gotten so big and they're not really restrained by government in any way, and this has been going on for years and decades and someone should should do something about it, and this is really the first. Concrete who've we've seen from the government in sort of the modern Internet era trying to rein in these big tech companies. All right. So I'm guessing Google to not throw them a big hug. What's their response to this Google response is, Hey, we have an awesome search engine. What's your problem with this by the way it's free so we're not harming any consumers with their awesome Search engine by the way when we spend billions of dollars and give that money to apple and Samsung or do people who use our android software for free, they get to deliver awesome phones to you for less money than they would have normally because we're helping to subsidize that what's your problem by the way? The idea of giving people money to get better placement is not. A new idea it happens all the time. When you go to your grocery store, your target or Walmart people have paid to have their products on the shelf or on an end cap they pay different prices depending on where they get placed. This is not a new idea, and by the way we've done all this in the open for years. Yeah. You get the sense that Google. Sees this as an existential threat at all I mean. I. Wonder to what extent This is a financial risk for Google. Stock Market said no big deal Google share prices trading higher than it was Google has faced these kinds of accusations and lawsuits in Europe for years there is definitely a possibility the the US wins a lawsuit and there are structural a reform is made in. Google. was forced to do something drastic like split it's android business from its search business. We're not sure as possible. This could be a way to break it up. Yeah. It's it is possible. There is a wedge here that you could use to break it up. There's also the possibility that. Spends years fighting the DOJ and it gets it takes its eye on the ball and or it doesn't make moves that it would want to make because it's in a lawsuit and it has one upset the government anymore, and this is what people at Microsoft said happened at Microsoft when they were fighting the US government twenty years ago. Microsoft ended up winning that because sort of there was going to break up settlement for for Microsoft and ended up not happening in Microsoft kind of got away with punishment except that Microsoft ended up missing out entirely on the mobile business and there are Microsoft people who say we did that because we we took our eye off the ball and There's an argument that just bringing the lawsuit and just occupying Google. Is Sort of a punishment in and of itself Peter you mentioned your story which talked about the fact that there's a lot of people on both the left and the right who've been calling to break up big tech. He's going after Google. Specifically, you made a great point which is that you had this sort of unlikely alliance between the trump justice department, which is bringing this lawsuit and folks on the Left like Elizabeth Warren who are. Glad. That Google is getting some skirting for the first time in a while. They're very glad and to be clear you know it's not just that it's a left right thing. I mean, the Lisbeth Warren Detests Bill. Burr she calls him a corrupt trump crony who should resign. And then literally, in the next sentence in a statement, they gave to me said and he should go ahead and pursue this lawsuit. And you know it's as basic as as anime enemy is my friend. The slightly more sophisticated argument is we can't wait to work with the DOJ that we love. We need to work with the DOJ we have. We've been waiting to restrain google for a decade or more, and we can't wait on this. It's gotta go. I want to ask about the timing of this. there. have been reports that this was sort of sped out right that there's an election coming up once every possible accomplishment that he can talk about to happen before Election Day. Do you see any evidence that this was rushed at all or what do you make of kind of reporting that? This is politically motivated to at least begin to unfold before Election Day there was a report from the New York Times in particular said. There's dissension within the DOJ career staff wanted to go slower and that bar was moving to make this go faster and he wanted to happen this fall. The intimation is this would be sort of a political action. It's possible. We certainly have seen Donald Trump rail against big tech companies especially in the last couple of weeks, he has to set anything about this suit today and and to be fair this is a little a little abstract I think for people to sorta understand and you know. I'm not a political expert, but it doesn't seem like this is going to move a vote. That said, you know it's Donald Trump era everything's very weird and and it's To ask questions about something like like the timing on this right? I mean. The timing is step back. Though as you mentioned earlier, this is a years long game. You know he trump I get to say he's begun the lawsuit, but obviously, this is not happening. Yeah. A more practical way of thinking about or another another way of thinking about it that folks have suggested to me is this is likely the biggest case in bill bars career and that if he doesn't file it now or at least before. He may not get a chance to file it because Donald Trump may not be president come January. So the rushes for Bill Bar to get this thing through and have his stamp on it. This a lawsuit that is gonNA live for a long time. Right it could live in Abidin Justice Department right and that he wanted to be the one to bring yes it may sir it is very likely to continue a Biden Justice Department and that bill bars looking at this sort of with a historical frame like this will be my contribution to antitrust.

Hope Vs. Despair

"Everyone Stacey Incarnate Cardiff here. This is indicator from planet money and it has been a while since stacey naive put on our holsters stared across from each other for a good old fashioned gunslinger and shootout. Right we know Cardiff. That these things are very hard on you so try not to make them frequently you know as it or not. I am talking like I'm in a Sergio Leone flick. So because we should always be talking like we're in a Sergio Leone movie. We need the music fistful of dollars, the DOODOO. Of. The US economy is in this very uncertain place right now, there's the election coming up Congress and the White House have not agreed on a new bill to provide aid and stimulus, and the economic indicators are pointing all kinds of different directions. Yes. So based on those indicators is the case for hope stronger or weaker than the case for despair. To end the show station high debate, we take sides and to decide which side we're flipping a coin flip out at the O. K. Corral, Dang right? Heads I. Make the case for hope and Stacey you are despairing and if it's tails, you get to be hopeful. So I'm hoping for hope. It's tails, which means you get to be hopeful I. Spring the despair. Oh, I'm so excited I. I'm excited to be the voice of hope Cardiff. I feel like I feel like there's a part of you. That's excited to be the voice of despair. AM I. Wrong. Little bit a little bit. So yeah US economy after the break the good the bad and the I guess in our case the Smug League own nice. Prepare to rush Garcia prepared to do Rashed it's happening. Support for this podcast and the following message come from. Google, from updating their hours to adding takeout and delivery information. Small businesses around the country are using free google tools to adapt learn how at Google dot com slash grow. Okay folks. I will be arguing the case for pessimism for despair about the US economy stacey is arguing the case for hope. Stacey. You get to draw I. Okay. Cardiff here it is the case for hope the US economy is coming back. Economists are forecasting that the economy rebounded very strongly in the third quarter of this year after a very terrible second quarter the official numbers for the third quarter have not been released yet. They come out next week, but it is possible that the economy was up to eight percent bigger than it was in the second quarter that is just enormous definitely for sure it would be A. Really strong number but let's remember that the third quarter included the month of July when the economy was still running on the stimulus provided by the cares act that was the big government spending bill that provided an extra six hundred dollars a week in unemployment benefits to people who are out of work but those extra benefits expired at the end of July. So the stimulus by now is probably wearing off and also we still have almost seven million more unemployed people in the country. Then back in February before the pandemic started and I'm really worried about them now that they're not getting that extra help. Yes, you are totally Right that the high unemployment rate has been absolutely crushing, but the reason for hope is that Cardiff this very great that you referred to has actually been falling. So remember the worst economic damage from the pandemic was in the early months of March and April since then the unemployment rate has fallen from about fifteen percent where it peaked down to about eight percent as the economy has recovered, that is a huge recovery in a pretty short amount of time. That's true for sure and a hopeful sign but we have to recall that not all unemployment is the same most of the people who've already gotten their jobs back only. Lost those jobs fairly recently, but the number of long-term unemployed people is actually still going up each month. These are people who lost their jobs more than half a year ago and they have not been rehired and the longer they go without a job. The more likely it is that they're gonNA, lose their contacts and lose their skill sets and really struggled to find work again. Later you make some fair points Cardiff and I would respond that if the economy keeps growing though eventually those jobs will come back and there is a really good reason for hope that the economy will, in fact keep growing and that is consumer confidence. In September consumer confidence shot up by the most it has in seventeen years, which means that people in the US are planning to keep spending money because they are optimistic about the economy. For example, the sheriff people who are planning to buy a major appliance like a refrigerator, a stove or something like that is the highest it's been in seven months, and all that spending is going to keep the economy growing. There we go. Cardiff Garcia mic drop I. Think we should just call it right now I have one because consumers can be wrong I. Mean just because you're planning to buy the latest oxo coffeemaker with that sleek. Thermal Carafe does that mean you actually will if suddenly the economy goes bad but I would also point to a big split in precisely what people are spending money on. So specifically, yes people are spending more and more money on goods for the home like furniture and electron ix. But consumers are still not spending much money on services on things like eating at restaurants on traveling, and that's a problem because for example, restaurants and hotels are a huge source of employment for low income workers. So I'm just worried about people who rely on those jobs coming back especially since remember again, those extra benefits for the unemployed already expired. Almost three months ago card. If I think you should go ahead and splurge and buy yourself fancy coffee Raffin. Here's why. So you keep mentioning that the benefits for unemployed workers have expired and that is true but it is also true that not all of the money from those benefits with spent right away. A lot of that money was saved plus people who kept their jobs have also saved more money since the pandemic started because all the business lockdowns meant there were fewer opportunities to spend their money and you know people were maybe hunkering down a little bit too and what this means that a lot of households out. There still have money saved up money that they can start spending in the economy on things like fancy coffee carafe indeed though we also do know that a lot of the unemployed workers have already spent down a lot of their savings according to the J. P. Morgan, Chase Institute the unemployed spent about two thirds of their added savings in August that was the first month after the benefits expired, which means by now their finances could be getting really tightened. So they may have to cut back on some of their spending card. If you've now perfectly set up my final argument in the case for hope hated when I do that. That is policy. It is not too late for the president and Congress to make another deal before the election in order to stimulate the economy, those negotiations are still happening and also the Federal Reserve has been using monetary policy to help boost the economy. For example, low interest rates have given a big boost to the housing market, and historically the housing market has been a good sign of where the rest of the economy is headed and housing market is doing quite well. Yeah I definitely concede. The point about the Fed and the housing market. But the Federal Reserve itself has also said that what would be really useful for the economy is another bill like the cares act from the president and Congress, and all I'm saying to you is if the case for hope relies on politicians striking a deal agreeing on something that might be the most despairing

"offs" Discussed on The Lead

"You know you wrote about some adjustments that Randy rose arena has made to his swing recently can you tell us what those have been and what kind of difference they've made? You know he came out of Cuba as a low ball hitter he could hit bitches loans zone but people raid that the power wasn't translating his ground ball rate was really high and so what he did was he stood more upright and he put. His hands up higher, and that allowed him to hit the high fastball in even if you have a flat swing, the high fastball will provide power just hitting the high fastball. Those balls go for more home runs does go for a higher launch angle and so just the simple adjustment made his flat swing, which is still good on pitches loan zone now capable on hitting high fossils out. So now really if you throw the high. Fastball, he can get to it because of these adjustments if you own the low fastball breaking ball is natural, flat swing gets to them. So it's really hard to identify place to pitcher. The rays have a reputation for finding value in really unexpected places. Do you think they saw this kind of potential what we're seeing right now from a rose arena or is he just surpassing even their wildest expectations? I mean there's the dichotomy. Between like what he's doing right now, the playoffs in what he will be as a player later. So I do think that they are realistic about what he will do for the next year whatever are absolutely enjoying than I did talk to someone within the organization about this and they were like, you know there were people outside and end that said, these are his flaws but people arguing about his strengths one out in the end. So. That was the major feeling was that they believe in the power you know and they believed athleticism and those are two things that they needed on this team. You know when you look at how good ran Niro's arena has been in these playoffs he obviously can't stay this hot forever but is this something that he can come close to keeping up how close to this good is he in the long term he's not going to be a guy who necessarily makes. His bones by getting on base. He has kind of Lee average type walk rate. So it's all about the power. The question is, is the power sustainable and one nice thing about ground ball rates is that they are one of the things that become meaningful quickest when you're looking at a players lines. When you say for example, that this year in the seventy six played appearances that random house Ena hat in the regular season that he had the lowest ground ball rate of. His career that is meaningful actually even though it was only seventy six appearances now you can start to say, maybe he's not a ground ball hitter and if he's not ground ball hitter, I think a lot of what we're seeing cower wise is sustainable. So He's a guy that I think can hit two eighty to ninety in a full season hit thirty homers I. mean this is exactly the kind of player the resonated arose arena and the rays are trying to win. The. World Series for the first time in franchise history how do you like the race chances against the dodgers in the world series? This one is tough because you know this is the battle of the NERDS. This is the Friedman's against the Friedman's. It's like you know they're very similarly built and the one thing that the dodgers have the raise dome have is the money to go and get like a Mookie Batson to have the Star on top of the death ready Freeman. Lifts his way up there and Didn't see it. I now goes back. Again. To stamp. Theodosius defensively. I think I might pick the dodgers because they have that star power as much as radio resume and has been amazing. mookie Betts you know has done it for longer makes more contacts and has been kinda sleeping giant. This could be the time that that step four takes over a series and wins it not single-handedly. We're still talking my whole roster, but he could be a focal point why the dodgers win. Superior Star. Lino thank you so much and enjoy. October. Baseball that's and this time we'll have off days I guess. You can read you know, Sarah's story about Randy rose arena and listen to his podcast rains and barrels at the athletic dot com from wondering athletic I'm the Davidson tomorrow. I'm Laura Beale and my podcast Dr Death we dug into the story of Dr Dench and the system failure that allowed him to maim and kill patients in. Texas. Since Dr Death came out. I've received hundreds of tips about doctors who've abused their patients. I still get a few every week but one story in particular has kept coming in over and over again far more than any other. It's a story about a doctor who sacrificed his patients health for personal profit, a doctor who had over five hundred victims before being stopped by the FBI doctor who deserves the nickname given to him by his victims.

"Economists often view the world? Through dollars and cents. That's true even when it comes to putting a price. On the Corona virus outbreak senior economics writer John Hills in Wrath says this type of question isn't exactly uncharted territory for economists. The key issue that I think policy makers all over the country a wrestling with right now is what trade offs do. We have to make to deal with this virus. What are we prepared to sacrifice in terms of economic output and jobs and lost income in order to tame the virus? And it's really really complex question. This is kind of like the climate change debate. Compressed into days at a time so in the climate change debate on the one hand there. Are these warnings that if we don't get climate change under control if we don't tame the spread of carbon into the atmosphere they're going to be a lot of very destructive social and human costs associated with people are. GonNa die in flooding natural disasters dislocations but on the other side of that there's an economic cost making the adjustments you have to make in order to emit less carbon into the atmosphere this corona virus situation. It's like that whole debate about climate change. Compressed into literally a few weeks time. I've never seen anything like this as economists. Look out at this situation that we're facing with whether to shut down the economy essentially for health reasons. What are the tools that they use to evaluate this particular question? So basically what economists do is they. Try to figure out well. What's the benefit of some new regulation? Take seatbelt law right. What BENEFIT TO SOCIETY? Get for requiring that every car driver has to have seat belt in the car and attached so there are cost to it. But what are the benefits what you do is you look at the value of the lives that you're going to potentially save so then you get the question? Well how do you measure the value of life? And what economists do create this value of statistical life. This value of statistical life comes from studying things like salaries in different industries for example. How much more people get paid for a dangerous job in some instances economists are able to determine a specific dollar amount. How much each life saved is worth to a larger population to help give guidance on what policy measures are worth it but this type of analysis breaks down in an extreme situation like the corona virus pandemic. Because economists don't have a lot of information you would normally need to make that kind of a calculation we don't know the probabilities we don't know how many people in the country are infected. And because we don't know how many people are infected. We don't know what the real death rates are. We don't know something called the R. Zero. Which is how aggressively the things spreads. How likely it is to move from one person you know if I have the virus? What's the probability that I'm going to pass it on to one or two or three? We don't know those probabilities sounds like the value of statistical. Life may not actually be that helpful in this situation. Well you know I think it is helpful because it kind of helps you start to frame the questions. I think it's a really important tool. But we have to understand that. It's an incomplete tool even with incomplete knowledge. Economists are still trying to answer the question of how long to keep restrictive measures in place but economists recognized that both options keeping the economy going or shutting it down to stop. Corona virus could have unintended consequences for instance. If you keep the economy effectively shutdown in order to save lives that choice could have its own negative health effects. You know in the last few years. They've talked a lot in the economics community. About this idea of deaths of despair your professors and case Angus Deaton at Princeton who found that his inequality has risen in working class. Life has gotten more unstable. There's been this upsurge in what they call. Deaths of despair people struggling with things like drug addiction and depression problems related to obesity health issues suicide rates increasing. These are the kinds of things that in an economic downturn. Get worse and it's something you really have to consider being a risk in this environment and for the opposite choice to ease up on social distancing to try and get the economy back on track. Some economists say that approach may not be much of an economic fix. So we see policymakers in places like New York and California who are shutting down entire states right and we might say well. There's a huge cost to that shutting down commerce in State. But we have to ask ourselves. How would people be behaving even if those states weren't being shut down? Would they still be go out to restaurants? Would they still be going to hotels or on? Airplanes people would probably be selfies leading in those cases..

"What to health experts say about whether that sort of middle ground of stemming the virus and maintaining the economy whether that's possible or feasible. I mean what what we've seen from health experts is that they say you need to keep people apart or the virus will spread so I think having vulnerable groups stay home but having the virus raging among the rest of the population. Most health experts would not approve of that plan. Because what they have recommended is that you WANNA keep people apart and that actually stems spread this conversation in this trade off that people are discussing. Seems almost unsavory. We're talking about to really bad options letting the economy completely sees up or not doing anything and having so many people die. How can people even have this conversation? And do it sensitively. That's a very good question. I agree with you. I think it is unsavory in some ways. You're talking about you know how much money is worth it to let x. Many people get sick. I mean I you know I don't know the answer to that question and I don't think that this administration has figured out either and I think it's going to continue to be a problem for them. This difficult question isn't just a problem. For the trump administration it's a brutal calculation that everyone from governors to small business owners are all trying to make. How long do I put my state on lockdown? Can My business even survive all this? These are questions that ultimately touch on both public health and economic health. Most public health. Experts are in unison. That right now business. Closures and strict social distancing are essential for fighting the pandemic. But some economists who are also looking at this have differing views about the right path forward. That's after the break five gene. It's a brand new mobile network. That's being rolled out right now and some say that this new tech is going to revolutionize our lives but others are convinced the five. G. is dangerous.

"And a half hours of me standing in front of my be the 'cause mine map and breaking it all down for you so do take advantage of that understand that there is a cause for what is behind our anxiety or depression are Defense mechanisms are horrible. Patterns are Horrible relationship choices and on and on and on in the mind map skier to going right for the cause and deconstructing it. So with Thatt's said I want to let people know also that I head up the psychological healing center. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist. I have a beautiful team of people who work with me. They're all trained in the mind map system and this is a call in show Show folks so please do call in. I think the number is up there. Correct so you can take a look at that and call in and and Even though Robert will be talking a lot we are interrupted. Please do ask questions so Ponzi schemes. Let's start with this article. So here's an article by Herald. Pollock February eighth two thousand sixteen. Why were so many made off victims? Jewish this article is not about Jews being ripped off or Jews ripping Jews off. This is a theme of people who are culturally in a group ripping each other off. Because when you have an affinity toward a certain culture a certain religion a certain group and if somebody in that group decides to use their affiliation there association there So called to rip you off. Well they can more easily do so so let me let me read a little bit about this Last week's ABC miniseries chronicle the most famous financial fraud in recent American history. This dates back to February. Two Thousand Sixteen Bernie Madoff who we are all familiar with or at least most of us are made off with fifty billion dollars through a Ponzi scheme which devastated elite institutions and There were a bunch of red flags going on and they were waving left right and center but people ignored it because mainly you don't really think that your best friend enter your business associate of years and years or a reputable person in your community is going to do such a thing. The tragedy itself was also a sort of warning. The victims were not just random victims. He decimated a segment of wealthy Jewish people and charitable organizations. He ripped off people like Ellie we sell and he even re ripped off a foundation called Haddassah a Jewish organization designed to help other people. So I like this comment. Who Defraud Sadaqa. That's like mugging your grandmother. Such 'cause would not be possible without the cultural use and social entree made off enjoyed in the Jewish community. This is called affinity fraud. Affinity fraud is depressingly common shocking. And this per- this person is an African American. Who wrote the article? And he says my own incidental exposure would be comical. If the stakes weren't so serious. I happen to live in a majority African American neighborhood in South Chicago. Land although you wouldn't know it to look at me marketing of Algorithms based on my street address and some of my purchases apparently revealed that I'm a middle aged middle class African American man so based on this I guess. Some rip-off artists put together an impressive volume of sales pitches Based on robocalls that President Obama is trying to refinance his mortgage or or or or at least advising him to now. I don't know how President Obama got involved in this or this. His name was tossed around to strengthen the sales pitch but then he he started getting a whole bunch of calls about Lowering his interest rates. And so on and so forth and refinancing and this all got very very messy and So inspired him obviously To write an article about this in this can happen to anyone. So don't think that this cannot happen to you and it is based on developing. Trust trust because there's an affinity between you and that person maybe they are the same culture the same religion or belong to the same organization There's an affinity there and so people let down their boundaries and boom they get in there and then You're in horrible Reverse mortgage deals or you're putting your money into a Ponzi scheme. And what have you and the most vulnerable people. Another article that I found that is very very significant is that the elderly are really at risk here. Because as you age your brain becomes less able to detect fraud not good for older people who are suffering from Alzheimer's Different forms of dementia. This is an article by Anti Nova and The article states that the elderly fall for scams and they fall because they have cognitive decline and so they are less likely to pay attention to negatives and they're not as vigilant against possible threats. And guess who are the most threatening people To the elderly with regards to fraud. Well their own relatives. There's a lot of Financial Abuse going on and so I just wanted to put that out there because We have to be vigilant against Our vulnerabilities I want to direct you to the mind map for a minute and in disgust panel number five and with regards to the article our defense mechanisms weekend and so who's Falmer bowl to Letting in all of this Poison so to speak. Who's vulnerable are people who have been groomed to trust who have no boundaries who have cognitive decline who Have families that didn't protect them well enough and I know we're going to get a call in soon from Robert so Robert. You're welcome to call in any time and I want to mine map. How this happened to you and what we can glean from this because it's really important that we understand the process the grooming process so that when people fall victim to this they can recognize that this is not just a random act that this is actually sourced back to childhood injuries that then That then set them up for this kind of fraud. So whenever you're ready Robert please do call in aunt. That number is three two three five two four to five nine nine. Okay so I'm going to go on a little bit more about this and I trust Robert is going to be calling in in any case You are welcome to call in and let's talk about a ripoffs affinity fraud why this is happening all over the world why this is happening within the communities and who is vulnerable Other than just people who are elderly and have cognitive decline. Why is it that we are so vulnerable to being ripped off? Okay and please do feel to call in while we wait for Robert. Hopefully he will be calling in. Because he's so passionate about this subject and He asked me to do the show and I invited him. In aunt onto the show as a guest so he can speak to this subject Hopefully he's still up an about enabled to call in Robert call-in and in the meantime if Robert doesn't call in then you call in and let's talk about how you got set up for such a thing. It'S PRETTY TRAGIC. So let's discuss it from a mind map perspective. We have talked about this on other shows. But it's just so pervasive now and and and It could happen to anyone. It can happen to anyone even if you have a level of financial sophistication even if you have A very logical head. It's natural you want to that. Human beings want to trust other people just like we want to trust our parents. We want to Be In a situation where we can feel comfortable and relaxed and trust statements. Like I'll take care of you. I have your back. Don't worry your special you know. These are very meaningful Setup statements for people who need attention who are feeling that they Are are are hurting desperately hurting for money desperately hurting for a feeling special so let let's look at what kind of childhood wounds would cost such thing so how about parents who for example. I'm going to panel one right now. Let let's guess at this. What kind of parents would set you up for fiscal affinity fraud type abuse? How about the general topic that I bring up much of the time narcissistic parents so what is the narcissistic parent and narcissistic parent is somebody that wants to bleed. You Dry. That wants to take your emotions that puts their own needs before your needs. So if you are used to parents who Switched the system up like this if you're used to parents who Would rather take care of themselves over you. Then you are subject to being vulnerable to this. Because you've already been groomed so going back. To childhood wounds there are five childhood wounds here One of the wounds is physical abuse. And then we've got emotional Name calling of verbal abuse. We've got a sexual abuse we have neglect. And we have smothering which is the controlling Type of abuse controlling manipulating these abuses cast a shadow over a person's psyche and leave the person vulnerable so whatever form of abuse you've been through it. Cultures actually violates your ability to protect yourself. It's kind of like breaking the boundaries. It violates your boundaries and once you've been violated either physically sexually or emotionally then Then the doors open for passing through and controlling and manipulating manipulating you. So I really do want to hear from you. I guess Robert Maybe Missed the time zone or I know. He's in another state In any case I invite you to call in and let's mind map how this could have happened to you. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who are listening. And they're scratching their heads or you're scratching your head thinking I'm a smart person. I'm a good businessman. How is it that I put all my trust in such and such an individual? How could that have happened to me and it happens a lot? Okay so let's talk about the grooming process so starting with panel one. You're you're groomed to be violated okay. Physically emotionally sexually. You grew to be violated panel to you. Have a reaction to this wound and the reaction is a reaction of a pain of of maybe of a of shutting down or maybe even mistrusting The world and then you encode material like I don't trust myself. I don't trust others. And then what that sets you up For is a feeling of now. You're aching for trust your aching pillars. So maybe your mother and your father were not there for you. Maybe they were not the support system that you need it so now you're vulnerable and I'm going to add a little more to that. What if somebody recently died in your family and your aching to be part of a group or your aching to be part of a a a family and there's this kind of a covert deal going on that you know we will love you we will take care of you But there's a deal here that has to be Enacted before we let you into our special community which brings me to the other point when you're made to feel special solar panel number three negative core beliefs. I'm not good enough. I'm not loveable. I'm not important enough to be number. One look what the Schemer is offering that Schemer is offering to make you feel special so there was something in the article that caught my eye. Let's see if I can find it. something about being made special Okay I can't find it right now but but when when people are led to feel special filmed do things like give out their social security number They will They will compromise Areas of their life that they never thought they would. Compromise would enter into Poor financial deals that otherwise maybe in a different state they would enter into an in this particular case of cognitive decline. The elderly very very vulnerable So how do you protect yourself from all of this? Well how you protect yourself from. All of this is to go back. And he'll these childhood wounds so that you don't end up in panel number four five six and replicate the horror story of the violations and the betrayals because at the at the Core of this is a betrayal. A big betrayal. Because you're putting your hands just like as an infant you're putting your hands in parents thought didn't protect. You didn't have your back that used you to Milk you dry of your emotions or milk you dry of Of of of of any anything including your money making you vulnerable to other people that do this to you as well so think about it. How did you end up being defrauded by your family or your friends By your community leaders and obviously this doesn't happen in all communities Not suggesting that everyone is to get us. I am suggesting however that you put up boundaries and I am suggesting that you Not Give out information. That doesn't belong in other people's hands and so what are some of the clues included Clues to you that That you're vulnerable. I'M GONNA make up my own list here I think number one coming from a family. That didn't protect you. Okay number two having a lawson life if you recently lost a husband or wife recently lost a parent or a lover as somebody of significance to you. Then you're vulnerable to needing in needing more support and eating more advice and needing somebody to pervert really wrap their arms around you and give you advice to give you support Also people pleasers vulnerable to this. Because they're offering you something special so if you don't feel particular search particularly special and they're waving the year special because I'm letting you in on this very special deal and I'm not allowing other people in because this is Information that only certain people can have and only certain people can join this particular investment. Now they're playing right into the hands of The the the hands of I will now boost your Your specialness so I'm just GonNa read a little bit more pretty much any powerful connection humans make with others provide some correspondingly powerful opportunity for affinity fraud. And this can go on in a A religious community can go on. Lgbtq community it can go on in a cultural A group can go on really really anywhere so I wanNA hear from you..

"And I woke up to pounding on the glass back window and flashing lights. Oh my gosh dude. And they were. They were like literally about a break the door or the window to open the car door to get me out. They thought I had died. Oh my God. That's acceded suburban. I rolled over like what I'm sleeping. Leave me alone. Oh Man yes so. I don't do horses at all. Yeah it's too bad though all right so let's check it out right. The Yankees are already. I like how you worded this. The Yankees are already a mash unit. We're last year right. Like they were the Mash Unit last year. Now they're already fallen apart. Yeah so let's get them caught up on. This came out this week. Luis Severino Needs Tommy. John we are actually GonNa talk about. His forearm. Stiffness or soreness last week. We've seen get to it yet but but that forums bothering him since October. Yes it's October. Yeah so you think they would have done would been able to get this taken care of like started in November at least right or or like. I don't know I'm so pissed off. I don't know but they should have done it a long time ago. Like he's done any more damage to it now since then K. But the I listen for the opposite opinion I've had plenty of surgeries this no fund man like you don't want the and they try to avoid. Tommy John at all costs Oli yes. It's like it is a such a long arduous rehab totally and he'll miss almost the entire season if not the entire season depending on. It's I mean it's pretty much three hundred sixty five days and taken pitch again like in a game. They are goes so yes. He's not GONNA BE YOU'RE NOT GONNA be in this year because it's not going to happen. Well Luckily we have some young talent in the farm system. But that doesn't mean a ready. Go you know right. Certainly not ready to step in and be an ace. Like savvy was. Yeah but that's not the only injury we have working for us. We got a lot more so Giancarlo Stanton is likely to miss opening day because his leg has a boo boo. Yes the for what I saw was he. He like. He heard his calf somehow warming up. Yeah Man I hate. I hate to be flippant about it. But it's like here we go again Real really the worst decision. We've made an ever Yeah that and you know I feel like it's one of those things where you may not have. These are like freak injuries right. Just like this something you could have seen coming that maybe had a couple of injuries here there and Miami but at the same time it's like are they going to continue or is he going to or our trainers gonNA work it out and keep him from pulling mussels and hurting a shoulder whatever you know that it. I don't know man. It's it's not because they're not consistent. There's no consistency the injuries right. You can't walk the chain. Yeah totally. Yeah that's the weird thing about it all as they're all unrelated so I don't know I don't know man it just. It makes me wonder like we talk about ever. A lot of people talk about the physique of a ball player right. What what is the ideal ballplayer? Look like what is he built like things like that and I wonder if maybe we've met the limit like like the human body is incapable of performing it at peak performance at a certain. You know size why me. He's huge huge. He could play any position just about in the NFL. Yes and be successful and you look at him and him and judge because judges what judges an inch taller. Than Stanton is that right. I think so. I don't know but I think their body types are completely different. Yeah judge judge slick a tall person yet whereas stanton looks like a freak of nature. Because he's just he's just that big you know. Yeah so yeah. I think you might be right. That he just might be too built in his his body. Just can't handle it because you know judge gets hurt nights like that's part of the nature being a big guy but at the same time. He's he's more proportionate you know top to bottom. He just looks like a person who's been enlarged in Photoshop or something that picture next to Jose Altuve van second base. Yeah like Oh. They're the same size. They just may judge bigger role. That looks like so little. Free form transform their. That's what they exactly exactly right there you go. I don't know all the lingo fine okay. Well in judge has a shoulder injury as well but that's fine that the real injury we should be talking about is Dustin Pedroia. Yes definitely because that you know I saw this and the the very first thing I thought of is. Is this going to be like the Red Sox? Put Him on the on the sixty day I l so he's not GonNa make opening day Who knows when he'll actually be available and this is an injury. It's gone back to the two thousand seventeen season since since he hasn't played since April seventeenth of two thousand nineteen. He's only played in nine games since the since. Two thousand seventeen off it's heartbreaking. It really is. It is because I mean somebody who is nicknamed the laser show right. You can get that nickname nowhere right. One hundred five games this season consistently hundred over one hundred hundred. You know that was that was leading up to the injury. Yeah Yeah that lasts that two thousand seventeen. He played Played a hundred and five games that but before that you know he was one hundred thirty eight hundred fifty nine hundred and sixty five. He's played yeah so he he's a he's a guy you can depend on and since the injury and anybody who doesn't remember doesn't know the injury. There is a collision at second base back when Manny Machado was still with the orioles is when this happened. Listen so Machado was a hell of a ball player but this one incident makes him the villain forever. It does it does because it's it could be potentially what ended Petraeus's career and kept him out of the hall. Could be because if this is it. I you know four. All Star appears not able to. It's done man and granted. He has a rookie rookie of the year and an MVP belt. But he's like you said only only four all star appearances. Feels like he was an all storm. All-star MAURY AD and should add but at the same time though I mean he's what let's see whereas it he is thirty thirty six now so this injury happened. He's thirty four. That's two years on the back. End of what could potentially could have potentially been his prime yet the he could have accumulated some more stats and padded his resume to get into the hall of fame. And I think it's GonNa Career wars sits fifty one point seven right now and you know he's Eighteen. Hundred Hits Hundred Forty home runs lifetime batting average to ninety nine It's just like for such an iconic guy who is so pivotal for that organization and and in baseball at Larch. I mean this guy you're right. I mean it's just it's just so sad. Yeah it's a bummer. That that that that could possibly be the reason why he doesn't get into the hall. And and I and I mean he was on a trajectory. We all thought you know. Future Holloway or Dustin Pedroia and maybe he will get in for those first six years of his career. But I don't know who's to say who's to say at this point I don't know anything of what the voters think I mean. Maybe he won't get in with the traditional with the baseball writers but he'll get in with the the historian at Kansas Committee. But yeah the the other group. Yeah the committee. Yeah maybe so. Maybe he'll get them with those guys we've clearly shown. I don't know we don't understand what the baseball writers want to see true. Nobody yes we still on the way that one guy. Yeah nobody knows it was still at large. I don't know yeah exactly. Well let's go ahead and take a break and when we get back brig and I are actually going to talk. I don't know we'll ask each other questions how I'm baby. Yeah there we go pop.

"All expect on lad had to be free and available but it's not an accrues so really carefully look at the prices and make sure that you are minimizing getting ripped off when it comes to Wi defy secondary to think about is excursions. You can easily be spending one hundred dollars two hundred dollars per person per excursion that can mount up to many many hundreds of dollars across the course of a week long or longer cruised. There are loads and loads of alternatives to cruise line excursions which always tend to have a slight premium and then partly because they do guarantee that the ship will wait for you. If the excursions are running late I like to look at a couple of things to avoid paying or money on on excursions. First of all I look wherever there are for hop on hop of. I'm a big fan of hop on hop of passes. They often come to the cruise porter as expensive to get some commentary. It's going to take you to all of the key sites. Also you can look at third party providers the lofton provide the same tours as cruise line. They'll be normally much cheaper and and also have smaller groups. The other great thing is caused by locals there are many many companies set up which will have locals that live. You've work growing up in an area and they will take you around often for free and you just pay than a gratuity. Thanks for those tours. You find all of those online if you you just search things like tours by locals and the port that you're going to a key thing when you're looking at cruise excursions to avoid being ripped off is take a look at just how close those places are to the port. You can often find that. Some of the excursions are very easily walkable from the port and that should be premium by being taken by the cruise. Line there if you want things like a day at the beach take a look at things like resort passes you can often find them online either directly through the hotel side or you can you can just search for resort passes in the place you're going and you'll find you can often go to the same resort or similar results for significantly less money than you're gonNa be paying saying the cruise line so definitely take a look at different alternatives. You may end up that you decide you want to stick with the cruise line. Because he liked the security of knowing that the cruise ship chip will wait for you if the excursion which all the other options the cruise line does not guarantee. They will wait for you. The third area for me that I think does verge edge on the roof of is SPA treatments spot on cruise ships seem to me to be incredibly expensive for even when you compare them with premium. AM prices in places like London for example so one of the ways to avoid that is either knocker the spot at all or white until the PORTA you'll find and huge reductions on spectrums portes. Because less people go you can often get forty percent or more of a SPA treatment so if you do really want to go to the SPA and you find the cost too high. Then make sure you're gonNA portait also be really really careful. Check that going to get on top of that. Charge a gratuity charge. wjr You'll find many cruise lines will charge you what I think. A very high prices for spot treatment but they will then add on eighteen percent gratuity charges and also the people doing doing the treatments are incentivized to sell your product so they do quite a hard sell at the end so one of things that I find the spot treatments is. It's almost stress on themselves because they all pretty expensive. And you have that up so make sure you don't be ripped off you ready clear with that. You don't owe by any products and go on portes another area that I do personally think is is crazy. All photographs photographs taken by the ship. Photographers are pretty expensive to buy and you can get around that by taking your own golfs particularly if you wait till the port-a-pots down the ship when the ships quieter and you basically go round and take photographs even if you don't have Zuhdi camera bear in mind. That mobile phones have incredibly incredibly good cameras so actually take your own photographs. Spent some time going around to sit on a day when it's quieter and do your own photographs because buying the photographs offs from the ship can be incredibly expensive now. You might want to splash out on one. Because you want a picture with the captain for example on formal night but it is really really expensive. Take your old photographs. Look at the locations that they're using around the ship and go there when the ship is quiet and take the same photographs for much much less nothing just time. Another big group of I believe is bottled water now. This is actually started to evolve because instead of cruise line selling plastic bottles polls. They're moving more and more to refillable bottles so hopefully over time this will disappear however bottled water is really expensive and you can buy packages his and spent a lot of money. The water itself on a cruise ship is perfectly drinkable. Older people worry about whether they can drink the water on a cruise ship. It's perfectly one hundred percent high-grade need water that you can drink if you're worried because you think you might not like the taste. Why don't you take little sachets of flavoring and have flavored water? That way you could probably even save. Save on Sodas on the positive side as cruise lines look more and more how they can reduce the use of plastics. There're increasing refillable water. which is the water that you can be drinking in King Anyway? Out of your tap or some of the water stations around ship audible too big ripoff in my view. When you can drink the water on the ship hip if you travel by yourself? Make sure that you don't get ripped off by the single supplements. If you go many cruise lines they will charge you. Fifty fifty percent to one hundred percent surcharge for single occupancy of a double cabin. There's no need to do that. Because increasingly cruise lines are are launching ships with Solar Chemistry for example on saga twenty percent of their cabins. One hundred and nine cabins seller cabins. All the big new ships coming are are increasingly having seller cabins however if the cruise line that you're a big fan of doesn't have solar cabins sign up for us. Your travel agent to watch chart for single supplement deals. So you're a lot of the cruise lines on specific sailings will slash right down to twenty percent ten percent or some even know a supplements for Solo travelers. So that's what I particularly do on some of the crudest I booked A. I'm going to be going by myself is I look for those deals where I'm going to be paying saying nothing or very low supplements. There's no need to pay more of course if you're very clearly you want to go on a very specific setting very specific ship chip at a specific time you all going to be ripped off in my view by the big surcharge. By being clever you can avoid that also avoid the On board shops onboard shops are not going to be the cheapest around you are coming on a cruise and you see things traps in the shops that you want do a search and check what it's GonNa cost you back her or even if you're flying home and going through judy free. Although chops generally in my experience are not particularly good value value. No matter what you're buying so actually be really cautious and if you are looking to buy something even the ports what the price of those things are. If there's something that in the shops that you see that you really really want wait for the sales pretty much on every single cruise towards the end there will be sales special office particularly if the shops on hitting hitting their targets. So don't buy things at the beginning of the Cruz. White until the Special Alpha and sales on if you're unfortunate to feel ill or poorly and it's not a massive asa began -mergency trying to go into the medical center if you possibly can. Medical sent on. Board ships are pretty expensive. Because it's a service that they're providing and also the drugs drugs they sell. You've prescribed anything pretty expensive. What I would suggest to do is go to one of the private walk? Incentives online most of these ports of call on are used to having lots and lots of visitors and tourists and normally within easy accessibility of the port. You can easily find a walk in emergency center. That's GONNA cost you much much less money and the prescription cost you much less again. That's really more if it's not a massive big emergency but you can spend a lot of money using the Medical Center on board a cruise ship. Many cruise lines have auctions and sell art and they saw a lot of art. However it's something to to be extremely cautious about an avoid first of all because it's an auction process and it's also very likely that you're gonNA end up getting caught up and bidding too much but generally speaking all suffer have read and looked at is? The general view is that art sold on. Board ships is not great value and you could easily spend and love that is because of that whole auction process where you can some get out of kilter between what things are really worth and what you're paying for them so void auctions. Wait till your hub do research by art at home the other area which I think you can easily be ripped off and ended up spending money that you don't need to spend is in the hall area of coffees tea juices uses and ice cream. All of those are available for nothing included within your fair up in the Lido Buffet restaurant in formal dining. Whatever it's called called you normally will find that you can get coffee often machines with ground beens? You're GONNA get special teas to choose from. That often have juice machines up there and they will normally have ice cream. Even if it's not valuable to serve during author mealtimes you'll have ice cream law ships will have specialty. Coffee shops shops teashops. That gelato shops and they will sell you premium juices from the because. There's no need to do that if you just head up to the buffet you. You're going to get those for free so don't spend money and don't be ripped off by paying for stuff that you've already paid for within your fair. The way to avoid being ripped off on on a cruise is to look at every single thing. That's not included in your as a possible area to be ripped off in toughness on included in your fair is is seen by the cruise line as revenue generation. They're gonNA try and get as much money as possible from the passengers on board the ship. So that's the area where you could end up spending. How too much being ripped off so look every time that you spend money on something? That's not including your fair approach. With caution say can avoid void. This can I reduce it or can I get around it and often the answer is yes if you found all these helpful I'd love if you watched another one of my many cruising tips and advice videos so why don't you watch another one of those right now..

"All expect on lad had to be free and available but it's not an accrues so really carefully look at the prices and make sure that you are minimizing getting ripped off when it comes to Wi defy secondary to think about is excursions. You can easily be spending one hundred dollars two hundred dollars per person per excursion that can mount up to many many hundreds of dollars across the course of a week long or longer cruised. There are loads and loads of alternatives to cruise line excursions which always tend to have a slight premium and then partly because they do guarantee that the ship will wait for you. If the excursions are running late I like to look at a couple of things to avoid paying or money on on excursions. First of all I look wherever there are for hop on hop of. I'm a big fan of hop on hop of passes. They often come to the cruise porter as expensive to get some commentary. It's going to take you to all of the key sites. Also you can look at third party providers the lofton provide the same tours as cruise line. They'll be normally much cheaper and and also have smaller groups. The other great thing is caused by locals there are many many companies set up which will have locals that live. You've work growing up in an area and they will take you around often for free and you just pay than a gratuity. Thanks for those tours. You find all of those online if you you just search things like tours by locals and the port that you're going to a key thing when you're looking at cruise excursions to avoid being ripped off is take a look at just how close those places are to the port. You can often find that. Some of the excursions are very easily walkable from the port and that should be premium by being taken by the cruise. Line there if you want things like a day at the beach take a look at things like resort passes you can often find them online either directly through the hotel side or you can you can just search for resort passes in the place you're going and you'll find you can often go to the same resort or similar results for significantly less money than you're gonNa be paying saying the cruise line so definitely take a look at different alternatives. You may end up that you decide you want to stick with the cruise line. Because he liked the security of knowing that the cruise ship chip will wait for you if the excursion which all the other options the cruise line does not guarantee. They will wait for you. The third area for me that I think does verge edge on the roof of is SPA treatments spot on cruise ships seem to me to be incredibly expensive for even when you compare them with premium. AM prices in places like London for example so one of the ways to avoid that is either knocker the spot at all or white until the PORTA you'll find and huge reductions on spectrums portes. Because less people go you can often get forty percent or more of a SPA treatment so if you do really want to go to the SPA and you find the cost too high. Then make sure you're gonNA portait also be really really careful. Check that going to get on top of that. Charge a gratuity charge. wjr You'll find many cruise lines will charge you what I think. A very high prices for spot treatment but they will then add on eighteen percent gratuity charges and also the people doing doing the treatments are incentivized to sell your product so they do quite a hard sell at the end so one of things that I find the spot treatments is. It's almost stress on themselves because they all pretty expensive. And you have that up so make sure you don't be ripped off you ready clear with that. You don't owe by any products and go on portes another area that I do personally think is is crazy. All photographs photographs taken by the ship. Photographers are pretty expensive to buy and you can get around that by taking your own golfs particularly if you wait till the port-a-pots down the ship when the ships quieter and you basically go round and take photographs even if you don't have Zuhdi camera bear in mind. That mobile phones have incredibly incredibly good cameras so actually take your own photographs. Spent some time going around to sit on a day when it's quieter and do your own photographs because buying the photographs offs from the ship can be incredibly expensive now. You might want to splash out on one. Because you want a picture with the captain for example on formal night but it is really really expensive. Take your old photographs. Look at the locations that they're using around the ship and go there when the ship is quiet and take the same photographs for much much less nothing just time. Another big group of I believe is bottled water now. This is actually started to evolve because instead of cruise line selling plastic bottles polls. They're moving more and more to refillable bottles so hopefully over time this will disappear however bottled water is really expensive and you can buy packages his and spent a lot of money. The water itself on a cruise ship is perfectly drinkable. Older people worry about whether they can drink the water on a cruise ship. It's perfectly one hundred percent high-grade need water that you can drink if you're worried because you think you might not like the taste. Why don't you take little sachets of flavoring and have flavored water? That way you could probably even save. Save on Sodas on the positive side as cruise lines look more and more how they can reduce the use of plastics. There're increasing refillable water. which is the water that you can be drinking in King Anyway? Out of your tap or some of the water stations around ship audible too big ripoff in my view. When you can drink the water on the ship hip if you travel by yourself? Make sure that you don't get ripped off by the single supplements. If you go many cruise lines they will charge you. Fifty fifty percent to one hundred percent surcharge for single occupancy of a double cabin. There's no need to do that. Because increasingly cruise lines are are launching ships with Solar Chemistry for example on saga twenty percent of their cabins. One hundred and nine cabins seller cabins. All the big new ships coming are are increasingly having seller cabins however if the cruise line that you're a big fan of doesn't have solar cabins sign up for us. Your travel agent to watch chart for single supplement deals. So you're a lot of the cruise lines on specific sailings will slash right down to twenty percent ten percent or some even know a supplements for Solo travelers. So that's what I particularly do on some of the crudest I booked A. I'm going to be going by myself is I look for those deals where I'm going to be paying saying nothing or very low supplements. There's no need to pay more of course if you're very clearly you want to go on a very specific setting very specific ship chip at a specific time you all going to be ripped off in my view by the big surcharge.

"And i was surprised to learn in the book that apparently education location doesn't really have a whole lot to do with it in fact you actually say that college educated people are twice as likely to get scammed as those who don't have a college degree. Why is that that yeah. You know what's been amazing to me as i do. A podcast out of washington d c every wednesday for sponsored by a._a._r._p. And basically basically we go to people who have been victimized that have written in we send it investigator out to interview that person document everything they said we get get them to get their voice on the radio and talk about what happened to them and then we go back and talk about why this happened to mr jones or mrs jones and what they should have done so that wouldn't have occurred but during this time i've had to former f._b._i. Director of the bureau who are now in their seventies and eighties that have been victimized. I've had the chief chief editor of time magazine retired but had been at time for thirty five years had that had been victimized so it it has nothing to do whether you're brilliant or whether you're smart it's whether that people come under that eat the and people convince them to do things they wouldn't normally do or they get to trusting and they don't use common sense to realize that it's probably a scam so you know i have taught at the f._b._i. Academy for forty three years to four decades aides to generations of f. b. i. agents. I basically have always believed that. Education is the most powerful tool to fighting crime so whether i'm teaching an f._b._i. Fbi agent or i'm teaching a banker or teaching a consumer. If i say to you here's to scam. Here's how it works. This is what they're going to say. This is what they're going to try and convince you of. This is what they're gonna do then when that scam comes when that phone call that email that sweepstakes scam calls you're going to say on. I already read about this. I know all about this. I'm not gonna fall for that and that's what i tried to do with this book to look at every possible scam from amateur i games to very very sophisticated scams and say this is how they work in very simple language. This is where the red flag is and then i put a little test after each wanted to make sure that people go back and remember and i hope they also use it as a reference tool for please social workers that they can do it. I'm a big believer. I've convinced a._a._r._p. Several years ago that we need to have a program to help educate bank tellers so that mrs jones who's seventy one years old comes comes in every week and get sixty dollars out of her savings. Now all of a sudden comes in and asks for six thousand dollars in cash that tells able say mrs jones as anybody called you you and told you that you wanna sweepstakes. You have to pay so much money or did they tell you that you owe the i._r._s. Money and sooner or later they hit on it and to go buy yes. That's exactly what happened. I got this call and i'm supposed to pay the six thousand no ma'am that's a scam and i just wanted to make sure that you didn't get victimized by someone but but again it comes to educating the teller who helps educate the customer and that bank brings great value to their customers because of educated. They're tellers to do s- out we'll then frank thank. I'm gonna ask you to indulge me here and perhaps do what you do on your podcast but with me and admittedly it may be where it gets really maddening for you. <hes> they want to run through a scenario with you. That happened to me and ask you to tell me everything that i did wrong. Okay a few months ago. Someone hacked an old a._o._l. Account out of mind that i never use but it was still tied to a number of accounts including my itunes account which also by the way happened to have the same password i i hadn't enabled two factor authentication on my itunes account but lo and behold someone did it for me using a foreign phone number that isn't mine and that i have no idea would it could possibly be on top of that. I didn't respond to apple's fraud alert email within the required two weeks of the incident because i never checked the a._o._l. Account again again so now there is no way for me to recover my itunes account and all of the apps and downloads that i've purchased over ten years are now lost possibly coming to several thousand dollars. Tell me everything that i did wrong there. Well first of all of course <hes> you should've <hes> paid eight attention to any alerts from someone like apple microsoft or anyone who's alerting you to suspicious activity on your account. You made a mistake that a lot of people make they news one password because it's convenient and they use it for everything so the same password they used for eye tuner. Amazon is the same password they used to get in to their bank account. Now and many of these inactive internet counts like a._o._l. And some of those those become targets for criminals that basically just like inactive bank accounts for years this ago <hes> they became targets of people who embezzled from the bank or worked in the bank because they knew is an inactive account so <hes> there were little things that you could have done <hes> <hes> like that but it doesn't mean they still wouldn't have taken you the technology in the ability that people have today with some of the devices we have that are not very secure and the companies that supposedly store a lot of this data don't have a lot of security in place just like equifax didn't <hes> and people are easily be able to get get in so i think if you basically make sure if you're using and i want to eliminate passwords but if you're using passwords they are using different passwords for different things the the same password and that you do pay attention to those alerts whether they be from your bank on your checking account or your credit card or whether they be on your a._o._l. Account account or they be on your. I tune account because those those are made so that there is something suspicious. That's going on and they're trying to alert. You're ahead of time well. I'm trying to learn and get better at this. I gotta say i did take your scam. Quotient quiz that you have in the book readers can find out how vulnerable they are to fraud by answering. I think it was about nineteen or twenty questions. I scored a one sixty. How did i fare against the average person. You did probably much better than try to always put those those quizzes in my book. When i wrote the stealing your life that was about identity theft and ask the question. Are you a victim. Could you be a victim for identity theft and asked him to answer so these questions and then scored them. I think it gives people an opportunity to see what they're doing wrong and where they might not be doing what they're supposed to be doing. <hes> yes well. I wanna ask you about some of the specific scams that you warned about in this book. One in particular is something that just about everyone has dealt with at some point or another those ridiculous nigerian email scams yeah first of all why why are they always from nigeria nigeria just a nation of crooks or what i very much which is and what it is is not it is so bad that even if you were to go back in the old days to the bank director of the international bank directory put out by the american bankers association and you looked up a bank and then you call that bank and spoke to an officer in that bank because you were trying to verify something that officer officer many of the times was part of the scam there are so many scams out of there so years and years ago when i used to teach nigerian scams at the academy a young agents i would say to me well. Let me ask you this. If they send out ten thousand letters that means they have to buy ten thousand stamps. So where are they getting the money to send these letters out. I said no all of the stamps on the letters counterfeit. They're not really counterfeited them so it cost them nothing to send it out but they send out ten thousand letters. They're only looking for one tenth of one percent to respond the difference today. When the internet came along we can now send out ten million emails and once again. We're only looking for one tenth of one percent to respond so it's just a simple way cheaper way of using technology to commit mitt the same crime but get to more people and get faster and quicker results and the thing that i always wonder about those is you know who who actually falls for these because they're always so over the top talking about some print somewhere who has a lost fortune hit sitting in a bank or you know. The grammar is always really horrible. Is it just just a matter of i it's kind of a self selecting pool where if you're dumb enough to kind of not see the obvious scammed and those are the people that they're really trying to target and if anything ask kinda weeds out smart people yes ingred always plays into it but you know what would the perfect scam you can go to a._a._r._p. Dot organ listened to all the different ones i've done or on my website at abigail dot com and you can actually play and listen to these thirty minute podcast but it's unbelievable the the people that have been told to go down to home depot in bhai twenty-five gift certificates or gift cards with this and bring the money back and read them the numbers off the card <hes> that you know they had their grandparents that scam the sweepstakes scam. You wanna sweepstakes. I love when they call and say that they won a sweepstakes jamaica and in order to get the money they won. They had to send down fifteen eighteen hundred or twenty five hundred dollars to pay the attacks before they could give him the money and i said well ma'am. Did you enter a sweepstakes in jamaica no within how could you have won the sweepstakes in jamaica as it's just amazing to me stuff that people do in sometimes yes if they're dealing with elderly people sometimes. They're not thinking straight that they get very confused. It's very easy to manipulate them but it's just a matter that people sometimes a little greedy and if they think they're going to get something <hes> they're not really paying close this attention or they don't know what they should be looking for. That really is a scam yeah and another one that many of us have encountered is these automated did phone calls purporting to be the i._r._s. saying that you owe back taxes and if you don't pay it over the phone a warrant issued for your arrest does the i._r._s..

"Pocket. I'm exposing the money in my account and i of course could use that debit card twenty times a day for twenty years and i won't raise my credit score for one iota and of course when we look at all the breaches that have occurred in a retail environment in the post investigation of those breaches when they typically ask what happened. Someone says you know i use my visa card so i don't know they canceled card the next day and two days later. They sent me a new car. That was the last. I heard heard about it. Oh no i use my debit card off my credit union and they actually took about three thousand dollars out of my bank account and it took me about three months to get back why. They said they were investigating it so even when i go to an a._t._m. Machine i only use an a._t._m. Card not an a._t._m. Debit car. No okay not an a._t._m. Card with visa mastercard logo just my card because then i'm governed by the same laws as my credit card interesting okay so that makes sense so by using a credit card. You're actually kind of doing yourself a favor and taking some of the burden of protecting yourself your shoulders and putting it on someone else right. You're really actually saying if they're gonna steal. Somebody's money. Let him steal the credit card companies money not my money yeah and in addition to being anti debit card. You say that you're also also anti password. I mean all passwords that we use to access our e mail or amazon account social media. These are passwords that i assume we are supposed to be there for our security to prevent fraud. You say that we should do away with them all together <hes> yes. I've written many years ago. That passwords are for tree tree. Houses passwords passwords were invented in nineteen sixty four. I was sixteen years old. I didn't even begin to do the things i did today. I'm seventy one years old and were still using passwords and we know that eighty seven percent of malware ransomware breaches all occur because is of passwords so we're long past due getting rid of passwords. They're complicated. They're hard to remember they make it easier for criminals to access our accounts so i have finally now started to see in the last few years some really good new technology that identifies you by your telephone and you're in does not use password password so a lot of universities have dropped passwords. I know a lot of big insurance. Companies have and a lot of major banks are getting away from passwords and i think in the next two or three years <hes> you won't see passwords around anymore and that's long long overdue should have been done a long time ago. What about if i say make up a really long and complex password i use numbers caps punctuation or or maybe even use one of those randomly generated passwords. That's not good enough. You don't think no because you know what happens is most of these technologies. Don't use anti replay so it's kind of like when you say i'd take my i ten phone and i take a picture and i put my picture on there so that when i opened her unlock my phone i have to have my image up there my biometrics when you took that picture your biometrics became a long stream of of numbers and letters but if i capture those numbers and letters and i- replay them then i'm you and that's the problem with biometrics so in developing helping the technology for no passwords. The first thing they had to do is develop anti reply which they did they patented it and then they developed the ability ready to be able to identify yourself by by your phone. There's a great ad on t._v. I've seen several times where serena williams's running through the marketplace you just has your phone and a handshake and a jogging outfit. She sees a necklace. She'd like to buy at the market so she walks over to her a._t._m. She presses the app on her phone. She gets the money i she had. No car no password and off she goes. It's an advertising for major bang but that's the kind of technology is starting to see that when you call the call center at your bank. They're not gonna ask you a lot of security questions. They're just going to ask you to press the app on your phone and identify yourself through your phone interesting. Now you mentioned malware. Where a moment ago. I feel like i'm constantly under assault every day. What devices are most susceptible to malware. <hes> you know things like your cell phone. Many times does your p._c. At home and of course there are many scams. I found in writing this book. One thing that was surprising to me. Is that millennials four for more scams then seniors do but seniors lose more money because they have more money and one of the biggest scams of course. You're on your computer. Pop up comes up says this is microsoft christoph. You have malware on your computer. Please call this eight hundred number and you call the number and they tell you they can fix it but they need a credit card number and there's a fee involved and <unk>. I can't tell you how many people fall for the scam and you say scammy if you can that you knew when you were first doing cons as a young man that certain people people were more apt to come under your spell than others what kind of people made for easy marks. I'm you know typically people who <hes> just automatically believed you. They didn't unquestioned anything. They just thought that you were that who you say you were. They didn't really have any kind of imagination that you couldn't be telling them you could not maybe not telling the truth. <hes> there are a lot of people thank god are basically honest and and because they're on as they don't have a deceptive mine so when the <hes> telephone rings and the caller i._d. Says it's the i._r._s. Or it's the police department or the u._s. Government or medicare they assume automatically oh that's who it is because no one has told them that caller i._d. Is easily manipulated and i can make it say whatever i wanted to say so i what i did in writing in his book and by the way i i wrote this book at the request of a._a._r._p. But i wanted to include millennials wanda clued investment people in writing a book and i gave all of the money for the book the royalties in advance back to a._a._r._p. So that they could fight crimes against the elderly but in writing the book <hes> it was just amazing to me. All of these scams basically no matter how sophisticated or how amateur came down to two red flags and the red flags were very simple at some. I'm point. I'm going to ask you for money and then i'm going to ask you to give me this money immediately. Give me a credit card over the phone. Go down the wall marquette marquette mya green dot card. Call me right back with the number on the back. Wire me the money. Give me your checking. Account number has to be done right now. This moment that that was a huge red flag and the other one was at some point. I'm going to ask you for information so i might call the caller i._d. Says at your bank you assume it is you pick up the phone. Well we detected some suspicious activity on your credit card wanted to call you <hes> and they'll talk for a little bit and then they finally say now to make sure you have your card in your possession russian. Can you read me the three numbers on the back of your credit card. The minute they start asking for information social security numbers dates of birth bank account a number. That's the other red flag and in the book you refer to how congress tes quote unquote get victims under the ether. Are these tricks that you just described some of the tactics that they use and what does that mean getting someone under the ether getting you really convinced that they're the real person and that everything. They're telling you is true. You know we have seen romance scams almost double now and you have people who basically meet you <hes> on line nine. They sound like very nice people so you're kinda lonely so you start writing back online to them and they give you a story about who they are and where they're from <hes> and all of a sudden if this goes on maybe for five six months then they start on the telephone and you're visiting with them and having conversations with him on the phone and now you really kind of gotten attached to that person you're under their ether. There's almost a little bit of romance and bob and then one day you say so look bob <hes> if you live just a couple of states away from me how come you don't come and visit me well i would but i have to have this operation and it's thirty thousand dollars and i don't have the money and <hes> but i don't get the operation. I don't even know that. I'm going to make it well. You know what i could. I could loan you that money and that's that red flag then. That's where you lose your money. You never met that person. You really don't know that person <hes> you only only met them online. You have to be a little more careful today anytime you're gonna part with your money or you're going to part with information. You need to know who is on the the other end and i'm curious. Is there any data on who's more susceptible to these romance scams men or women mainly women and what happens a lot of times now as you see these people who go on facebook and there's a picture of a young marine really good looking guy well decorated. He's in his uniform looks really sharp in that close of photo they snatched that photo and then they email that photo out to thousands of people and they claim that they're that person jason and of course young women come on and start to say hi my name's bar i saw you on <hes> on your email and like to get to know you meet you and they'd start to befriend friend. Those people believing that that's the guy in the picture when in really reality could be an eighty year old guy and eventually again they might say i'm in afghanistan in and i was wondering if you could send me over some money for some <hes> canteen stuff or you could give me a debit card or something so i could access some money any <hes> and is all just part part of that part of that scam again. You really don't know that's the person all you've seen is a picture. They told you that that person even but you really don't know that and that relationships fine unless i start to ask you for money or i started to ask you for personal information information then it becomes a totally different relationship. Let me ask you this. There's such a proliferation of dating apps now from tender and match dot com to bumble will is anyone dating app any better than the others in terms of verifying the identity of users. I really don't think so and i get very concerned about apps as as you know <hes> the face app came out eighty million american signed up for it they scrolled through the contract didn't read it put at the bottom lemon said i agree because it's free <hes> it is a russian bought a russian app in which the russians were simply trying to get the data and now they have of information on eighty million americans. They have their biometrics. They have their pictures. They have their information and of course they know how they look at twenty. They know how they're gonna. Look at forty <hes> that was a foolish mistake so i went back to pull that contract and when you read it you see that it says here revoke qabail they can use is your picture in any way they want. They can track you. They can do all these different things that you just turned around and said i agree because it was free so i think you have to be very careful about the type of apps download and understand who you're doing business with. I wouldn't wanna go just use a dating service because they have a free app or they have an an app. I'd want to know. Is this a real legitimate company. Who what are their references. How long have they been around in as i remind people all the time you can't rely on the please. You can't can't rely on the bank. You can't rely on the government. You have to be a little smarter today. After a little wiser consumer today before you part with your money or your part with with information we're gonna take a quick break and then i'll be back with more with frank abergnail when we come back in just a minute.
