"The us is finally detailing how it plans to provide eighty million vaccines to the world. How are we going to do this. So i've been waiting for this news for a long time. I've asked the white house about this. Finally they've said seventy five percent of the first round of vaccines that we share will go through this global kovacs initiative that's backed by the world health organization and it's basically intended to ensure that every low and middle income country gets some vaccines. Seventy five percent will run through that system and then twenty five percent will be us just surging at where we think it's needed. Some of that will go to our neighbors mexico and canada. Some we'll go to allies like south korea and then some will go to a poor countries that are really in need of of vaccines now. Let's go to a story that our listeners might have missed this week. Which is the israeli government earlier in the week. Asking the us. For a billion dollars. One billion dollars to replenish defense spending used during the recent war with hamas where does the biden administration. Where's congress stand on this so we'll have to find out soon from the biden administration. There were meetings yesterday in washington between the israeli defense minister and the us national security adviser and defense secretary in which this one billion dollar request was expected to come up. We have heard already members of congress. Some particularly republican members have been quite vocally backing this request from israel saying the. Us should stand with our allies. Came under attack what we can expect to hear from progressive democrats who are much more skeptical of sending additional weaponry to israel particularly after The quite high civilian death toll in gaza in the most recent round of fighting a so this will be a controversial request But it is something that the biden administration will now have to weigh in on deep within my looking ahead. President biden's trip abroad is next week beginning with the g seven. Few things after that. What do we need to know about. his travels. So biden is heading to europe. He's starting with allies meeting with the g seven. He's heading to nato. We can expect things like climate change vaccine sharing to be on the agenda in those meetings. It also sets the table for his last meeting which is with vladimir putin in geneva. I think we can expect that. A much more contentious meeting than the meetings with the allies earlier.

Failing doesn't have to be having that massive team scaling doesn't have to be having seven. Your largest scaling doesn't have to be a one billion dollar revenue doesn't have to be hustling all day every day but scaling is that ability to have time have freedom and strategic intentionally.

"I say that. From a point of reference and appointed experience. I used to work in a very popular. Snickered store here in the uk specifically in london. And i knew the kind of for gezi no. I need to the unscrupulous behaviors that went on behind the scenes in order to get the shoes from the factory to shop floor. And into your hands. They go of hoops. They go for a lot of people. People get passed before they even left. The delivery trucks is a very dirty and hypocritical. Game so the fact that people set up the ability to win raffles to have the chance to buy something with your hard earned. Money is a real kick in especially when you consider the sneaker industry is a one billion dollar industry maybe more than a industry. Last time i checked right most brands outside the talk. Free are still selling like hotcakes. Retro zola places is a big business. It's not the niche industry day was prior to exclusive these companies have before they wouldn't want to produce it into the market to make things more comfortable is absolute pony bullshit. They should just make more shoes. Have the ability for people to actually purchase them into get them instead of just remember. Why did i can go into a shop. And buy the new iphone by new i mac and buy a new pair of headphones but i come by a favorite pair of shoes because they decided to only released them in limited quantity select verb new stores. Who put them up for wrestling. And then the game back door and if you want do back mean back to me means before they even hit the show floor before they are of their boxes and unto the onto. The stockroom shelves diverted have been allocated to people in winter. Kept him out the back. And why do i know that. Because i've done it myself. I've been able to take out of rotation before. They've come out delivery and put the money to and even them so imagine what's happening nowadays. Would the excess amount of shoes are being produced. Year-on-year is absolutely insane. So over the weekend he continued during their bullshit moves and they put out shoot the nike an edge in trophy room which was specifically released in detroit.

"Going to arrest you so it wasn't that somebody complained about all the notes because that was what they originally told us at one of the protests in december. Was you guys have to stop making all this noise because a neighbor complained. They didn't say that in this case they just said we're going to arrest you for disorderly conduct for talking too loud and so franks responses. Basically why i'm always talking loud. This is my normal tone of voice. Are you saying you're going to arrest me for my normal tone of voice and they never. I don't think he really ever got a straight answer out of mix up that they did intend to arrest him for using a loud voice and so moments later frank Looks at one of these other masked men because one of them was in like a relatively tall guy was in all plain clothes. He was still wearing like the state official facemask but otherwise he was in full plain clothes and they have official face. They do now yeah. That's so depressed. State logo on it and so the plane guy. I don't know the plain clothes sky. He frank was like well. What's your name identify and it is your right to know who these officers are there. Kind of at odds with each other. About what the next big bubble too late is the one that i the degenerates really wanted to inflate was naked but it was interesting because they get wall street back They they what is what does that mean. Naked brand on the nasdaq as an ak d company. Do they make juices. No i i think they own a couple of different brands. I think they have a couple of different clothing brands. actually yeah and For some reason. I think one of these one of these big pop pop culture icon might be involved in it like maybe not the kardashians but one one of them anyway. She's a supermodel. Heidi klum yeah. Yes yes Back in the night. Yeah okay. yeah but anyway So so they're a little bit about at all because the really interesting thing was that They started talking about naked on wall street. Best with the moderator span. Because they have a rule they already had a rule on wall street. Debt that you can't have blow one billion dollar market cap bill. They've already branched off at created their own sub rented. And it's really easy. It's just nhk d that's a steph to sub reddit and human a website that actually teaches new users kinda by these stocks and help them in the bubble. I don't know it's going to be hard to to really pick up. I think on where the next thing is going to be. Are they really going to be openly. Advertising it are they going to try to keep the next one quiet or like word of mouth instead of on wall street bats. It sounds like what you're saying. Is that this this. This community is falling apart. I mean They're already having a schism right after they had this big level of success now they're having a split and people are going their separate ways. That doesn't sound like a good thing if this company was promoted by celebrities you think that maybe they're just trying to get on this train and they're just trying to make their stocks more expensive. Maybe naked behind this and maybe naked spine this haiku. I'm sure there are profiting off. I mean i heard they're already getting ready to you. Know maybe offer new stock offering because of the bubble that's been played but look this. He even my taste..

That's why i think if anybody now is going to be look even worse because that is two billion dollars between three deals in the last eighteen months. Wwe is in such great shape and they're in such great shape for years and years to come with this deal but the counterpoint to that is an up. I i agree with you. One hundred percent. But i'm i'm glad they're not out there. Well they are essay. They got ms k. Saint some of the talent that they bring to them and then they by the way. M s que. Your prediction last week was wrong.

Yeah it's very 'cause they could they're gonna lose footing in that war. I don't know what an inch. Our ratings are verses annex t but i would think that an itsel ratings are probably going to be a little bit higher so that would be definitely an option. Which they they're gonna lose any footing in the w they're gonna have to come up with stuff.

"From thinking this issue. It's not something. I would generally want to partake in a today is social networking platform. If you're not familiar which essentially to buy steady so just audio and so kind of lives it. Just it doesn't live on the apple kind of disappears at the time of recording the recording. Sorry of the extra compensations. You join various rooms hosted by various people Concentrating on various topics. You know the day or maybe a few weeks ago. There was a really cool one where they did like on addition For the lion king and enable to perform it live via the app whip people went through the entire phrase of the entire scenes of linking over this odor only platform and i guess for a sunset population. We'd like to hear the sound of their voice like i do. It probably has some sort of benefit and of course i think the sort of like traction it received mostly from the textile. Vc wold right those of kind of interesting. Maybe you would say somewhat controversial conversation on on the app. It was behind a closed goals and only invite only An old people want it in windsor. Here what was going on that create a bit of dino above hype and interest in the upper overrule which and probably led to people may be of estimate in the pale and then of course you couple that with covid and us being looked in dole's day wanting to communicate and talk to strangers for the most while right out and about living our lives clubhouse was probably the closest thing to it. There is an element out there that exists or the narrative. If you listen to the joe biden podcast see here. He basically say oh you know clubhouse and apps of that ilk at they kind of black people some full reparations because the app was coal before they saw tapped into that hip hop of and world which is definitely. There's an argument for it but to suggest that they have some sober gatien to open up the series of investing for people that may defend. Pop isn't necessarily accurate and maybe somewhat naive in fed. Just well i'll be a could approach buffing. The world we live in at the moment is really really naive to suggest that you will tell somebody who's died arapoff there. I'm back to allow customers. Who freely decided to come on the app and what you need to best. It's not going to happen but that aside and says all my reservations to one side.

"I'd like to think that this news is a direct result of the fact that i spoke on stage at josh constanze weekly press clubroom on clubhouse on thursday night. Paul and the gang saw how successful that went. And we're like quick. Pull the trigger on this for sure. I'm joking of course. But in a blog post yesterday clubhouse announced a new funding round led by a sixteen z. Word on the street is that it's at a one billion dollar valuation. Which if you'll recall six months ago people were saying it was crazy that a sixteen z led a one hundred million dollar valuation also clubhouse says it will soon begin work on an android version of the app and it is actively beginning tests around paying creators or at least allowing creators to charge and earn quoting techcrunch. The plans around monetization routes for craters appear to be relatively open ended at this point with clubhouse saying it'll be launching first tests around each of the three areas it mentions tipping tickets and subscriptions over the next few months. It sounds like these could be similar to something like a patriotic built right into the platform. Tickets are a unique option. That would go well with clubhouses more formal round table discussions and could also be away. That more orgnisations could make use of the platform for hosting virtual events during a regular virtual town hall. The apps founders hosts on the platform ceo. Paul davison revealed that clubhouse now has two million weekly active users. It's also worth noting that clubhouse says it now has over one hundred and eighty investors in the company which is a lot for a series. B though many of those are likely small independent investors with very little steak and quote. I thought martin bryant had decent analysis of this in his big revolution newsletter. This morning quote. People are excited about clubhouse because it's like a grownup version of twitch clubhouse is the first opportunity for professionals to build a presence and an audience in a near zero barrier to entry live media app at its worst. This means. there's a lot of lincoln. Style fake insight and people trying to be gurus but it also means there are a lot of really interesting conversations featuring people you might not hear from on other platforms. The twitch analogy seems to fit with clubhouses monetization strategy. The plan seems to be provided a platform and money making opportunities. Then sit back and take a cut as we've seen with the stories format once something is a success in one place. You can't stop it popping up all over the place so far. The only notable clubhouse clone is twitter spaces which is still in testing but expect live audio chat to be tried in all sorts of slight variations across different apps. You already use for. I suspect linked in is already exploring what it could do with this format. The challenge for clubhouse is maintaining its value as a destination everyone else offers the same features helping creators. Get paid is one part of this. But ensuring those craters provide enough reasons for listeners. To keep coming back we'll be a greater challenge. But then you can stream video game footage in a number of places including facebook and people keep coming back to twitch so. The problem isn't insurmountable quote
