I'm a coconut all the things i've been called over the years. That's a new one larry. I've never heard of coconut on the sideline out. Yeah i got it.

Roughly five percent of the era are incompetence if that holds in california talking about fifteen thousand incompetent teachers most of whom were assigned to south central los angeles not to the valley not in the west side but the south central los angeles and yet.

Sixth last june former us president donald trump began using racist language to describe the novel corona virus. That by that point had already killed half a million people. There's never been anything with so many names. I could give you one thousand nine hundred twenty names for that right. It's got all different names. Wuhan wuhan swiss catching on corona virus.

But anti asian sentiment is not new in the us it goes back to the eighteen hundreds when chinese laborers i arrived to work on the railroads and in the coal mines official government policy at the time systematically discriminated against asians and this is not an issue limited to the united states around the world asians face overt and covert discrimination over the last few months.

Georgia State Senator Michelle Au Warned Against the Rise of Anti-Asian Violence

"Violence against asian americans has increased by nearly one hundred fifty percent in the past year. Recognize that we need help. We need protection and we need people in power to stand up with us against hate. Did you hear the urgency and her voice. That was our next guest one day before the shootings in georgia. The tragedy has escalated and already heightened fear over a rise in anti discrimination and violence across our country for more. we welcome to the broadcast. Dr michelle out. She's a democratic state. Senator representing the state's forty eighth district northeast of the atlanta. metro area. Also happens to be the first ever. Asian american woman to serve as a state senator in the great state of georgia. Doctor i know it would sound trite to ask you. React to the tragedy. But i'm going to ask only because your words were still hanging in the air in the chamber when you learn the news of what had happened last night. Thank you much for having me. And thank you for asking because I think the reaction that i had in that many people had is that we were Shaken obviously we were shocked especially by the brutality and the the alley of his attack. But we weren't really surprised right. This is in some ways a combination of a lot of asian american discrimination violence. That has been building over the past year. But it's not just this incident and it's not just the past year of escalating violence. This is just the latest chapter in a long story in a long saga of asian american racism and violence in the united states. So no we were not surprised though. It is still shocking to see. It happened so close to hong. I am compelled to play for you and our audience. The following statement that we all witnessed today have spent the last few hours processing. This is from a captain. Part of the local sheriff's department will discuss on the other side. This is still early but he does claim that it was not racially motivated. He apparently has an issue. what he considers a fiction into temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate last investigators interview this morning and i they got that impression that yes he he understood the gravity of it and he was pretty much fed up then can at the end of his rope and it was a really bad day for him and this is what he did. Doctor can we talk about the way we talk about a crime like this. I've had bad days. And i'm reasonably certain. So have you. And i'm also absolutely certain neither you nor i have taken a human life as a result. It's remarkable the way that we treat certain perpetrators of crimes the gentleness with which we handle the shooter and attributing his behavior to him having a bad day and his wanting to squelch his addiction as opposed to him taking responsibility for his own actions. As you noted most of us had had bad days. None of us have gone out and shot and killed eight people. So it's it's just a remarkable narrative. Dc and. i'm really looking forward to see how people handle the story. As more information comes out and as we learn more about the identities of those that he shot and killed americans don't know need to learn the acronym a pi for asian american and pacific islander community in our country. Do you hope that what we've established for all the worst reasons. This may be a public turning point in terms of public perceptions of the problem of the threat of the violence against members of the api. I'm hoping if anything good comes out of that. It is this sort of public awareness. And that's actually why. I went to the senate well on monday and spoke about this issue. you know. I think that it's been coming to a head for some time now. I think probably over the last month or so more attention has been paid to this issue. But it's been mostly stories reported out of cities like new york in los angeles and in the bay area where there is a higher density of api americans. The reason i went to speak in the well to my senate colleagues is because i did not want people in the state of georgia to feel that we were immune to this. Same epidemic of racial violence against asian. You'd never want to be right about these types of things so the swiftness was which we saw this shocking attack. Literally the day. After i went to give the speech floored me but i think that if anything good comes out of it is that we increase awareness of this problem and and that we have more allies to stand with us because it can't simply be the members of the api community decided to stand up and finally speak out for ourselves against violence. We need more people to also stand with us and fight against this kind of

There's more than sixteen hundred and forty customers contributing over one hundred thousand dollars per year in annual revenue. That's up about one hundred fifty percent the the dollar expansion rate for customers with more than ten employees. That's kind of the sweet spot.

Baltimore Is Suing Big Oil Over Climate Change

"Okay sue. you said that the lawsuit that went before the supreme court this week was brought by city of baltimore. Yep and there are more than twenty of these lawsuits. They're all alleging various versions of the same thing that climate change is causing damage in the city or the state or the county and that oil and gas companies are partially responsible. And the baltimore case just happens to be the one that made it the supreme court. So we'll focus on that one also very convenient because you live in baltimore. Indeed i do definitely makes it easier for this reporting so what specifically does the baltimore lawsuit allege so this lawsuit alleges that a long list of big fossil company isn't that includes exxon mobil shell. Bp chevron misled the public about the dangers of burning fossil fuels and that those companies have to help the city pay for the cost of climate change so the lawsuit lays out how global warming is causing damage in the city. And how that's expensive for the city. Government like heat waves for example. They're expensive or flooding like the flooding from climate driven extreme. Yeah and flooding from ceelo arise. So let's start there because that's actually the simpler one sea levels on the east coast of the us arising more quickly than the global average streets sometimes flood during high tide. When there's a storm water ends up in buildings which is obviously not good And when you look to the future. The city estimates that the amount of baltimore's port area that will flood frequently will increase by almost one hundred fifty percent in the next thirty years. Well a hundred fifty percent becky. that is intense. That is a lot of flooding. Yeah it's super serious. And i have to imagine that it's going to be really expensive to retrofit baltimore to be able to deal with what's coming. Yeah totally and you know. Climate change isn't just a future cost right.

"Nobody's shopping retail spending plunged in April as the corona virus pandemic forced the American consumer home and out of restaurants stores even gas stations. The April retail sales drop of sixteen point. Four percent broke the record set just last month now. Online retail sales are up including a statistic. I think I have directly influenced PYJAMA sales up one hundred fifty percent last month but the American consumer is our backbone typically responsible for about seventy percent of our twenty one trillion dollar plus economy here. Cnbc senior economics reporter Steve. Liebmann people aren't buying stuff. I mean I hate to state the obvious but this is an obvious statement in bold relief. Here they're not buying cars down twelve percent. They're not buying furnishings and home furnishing items down fifty eight percent clothing and clothing accessories down. Seventy eight percent. I mean there's one positive here I think there is just one positive that positive is non store retailers up eight point four percent and besides some sort of strange up and down we had in December eighteen that is the largest one month increase in that is electronics. And that's where people are indeed buying things. Non Store Retailers Down Twenty nine percent and I want to just say a word here. You have gasoline gasoline station sales down twenty eight percent normally. That's a good thing where the decline in gas prices ends up being sort of like a tax cut for individuals except in this case because people aren't driving they aren't really getting that remained necessarily. They're not paying as much for gasoline and not going to work. But you're not getting the stimulus you might otherwise get from the decline of gas prices similar ideas here with the decline in Federal Reserve interest rates so the nation shutdown that shutdown showing up dramatically in these retail sales price sales report here.

Back to the furore: protests set to reignite

"Switch on the news today. And chances are it'll be about one thing. Us Corona virus deaths. Almost these should but six or seven months ago something else was dominating global headlines and this show a wave of protests had erupted the cost the globe not least in the Middle East and Arab world. Not since I suppose the Arab spring of two thousand eleven half one seen so many apparently told NATO simultaneous protests in one place so once green now in Baghdad is carnival as the corona virus has spread many of these protests movements have necessarily and put on hold lately though in Lebanon. Not even a look down has been able to contain the public anger that has swelled. The country's economic crisis has gone from bad to worse. Those who took to the streets last October are protesting against their government once again for more than a month. The lockdown bought the Lebanese government clear. Streets there was a lot of concern here that the virus overwhelm the underfunded healthcare system in Lebanon and so people really did obey the government. Stay at home order for the latter part of March for much of April. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent reporting from Beirut a gun to appoint over the past two weeks where the virus looks contains and where the economic situation has gotten so bad that people have begun to ignore the lockdown orders to go out and protest so particularly in Tripoli Northern Lebanon which is one of the poorest cities in the country. Thousands of people came out to protest some of these protests turned into riots people throwing firebombs into banks. Lebanese army using live ammunition to put down protests in Tripoli killed one protester a young twenty six year old man and wounded a number of others and the protests were seeing now are a continuation of the ones we saw last year they are the protests that started in October. Were really a rejection of the entire political class in Lebanon and the sectarian confessional system. It's been in place. Since the end of the civil war. In nineteen ninety but the trigger for the protests really was an economic crisis the banking sector looks illiquid if not entirely insolvent the currency is collapsing. People are seeing their life savings effectively. Cut In half over the past six months and all of this was happening even before the lockdown which is obviously dealt another severe blow to the economy so this situation now where food prices have gone up by an estimated forty percent since September. The government thinks inflation. This year will run about fifty percents. You hear reports from business federations that maybe a third of registered companies in Lebanon have gone under over the past six so the economic situation really has gotten very bleak and it's back into the streets and what is it that put Lebanon in this crisis in the first place. Lebanon has never had a very productive economy. It's been based on finance real estate tourism. Very large Service sector so. It's not a very wealthy country doesn't have very many well paying jobs but it's been able to keep the economy humming with this big influx of foreign capital much of which comes from the Lebanese diaspora. Which of course is larger than the Lebanese population inside of Lebanon? And what's happened over? The past few years is all of this. Stop working at once the real estate sector. There's a bubble that looks overbuilt and overpriced. The financial sector is slowing down deposits. After a year of steady growth deposits banks have begun to decline the central banks of resorted to running a pyramid scheme to defend the currency where it was borrowing dollars from commercial banks at very above market interest rates and no longer has enough dollars to do that and so all of a sudden everything has collapsed. Lebanese pound which has been pegged to the dollar at fifteen hundred since the nineteen nineties now trading at about four thousand on the dollar on the black market the government in March defaulted on its debts. Lebanese public debt is more than one hundred fifty percent of GDP and it's simply become unsustainable and the pandemic and the reaction to the pandemic has only exacerbated all of that it has and we don't know quite how bad the economic situation is yet because of course everything has been closed but a you hear sort of anecdotal stories of businesses. That are not going to reopen once. The lockdown lifted particularly things like restaurants bars cafes which are a big source of jobs in this country but between the lockdown off their business and the collapsing currency. They no longer have a sustainable business. There are stories of hardship that circulate on social media. Every day there was a video of a pregnant woman assume was her husband's Eating out of a dumpster the story of migrant workers who have really been hit hard by this crisis because they haven't been paid in months and some cases trying to cross the border into Israel. Which of course is closed and military is so it's become a very difficult situation. Lebanon has gone to the mouth to ask for a bailout. Of course it will be many other countries asking the IMF for help right now but securing one is going to require a very serious effort at which is something that successive Lebanese governments for decades have not want to do but late last year. We weren't just talking about protests in Lebanon there were demonstrations breaking out over the world particularly in the Middle East and the Arab world. Do you think it's the same story as in Lebanon? This kind of unrest will return to other countries in the region just as soon as the worst of the pandemic has passed. I think it is Lebanon is perhaps going I because the economic situation has gotten so bad here but you go back six months and Iraqis were in the streets protesting against the corrupt and ineffective government. Algerians were protesting all year in two thousand and nine thousand nine. I to overthrow their longtime dictator then to protest against the army-backed government. That succeeded him. All of that of course was suspended because of the lockdowns. Everyone has been at home but The grievances that drove them into the streets in the first place which again are largely economic. Those grievances remain there Iraq on Jerry or both should be quite wealthy countries. They have large oil and gas resources and yet that money has been squandered and stolen over the decades and that is what is driving people into the streets in protest and again in both of those countries situation looks to be getting worse because oil prices are as low as they. Are you look at Iraq? And there are estimates that the government will have a forty billion dollar shortfall this year from what it budgeted versus where oil prices are now. It's not at all clear who's going to step in to lend that kind of money to Iraq and so there to the economy is going to get worse and I think give it a few weeks or a couple of months and likely that people be back out on the streets there as well break.

If everyone clicks on the secondly instead of the first listing it tells Google the second one's more relevant and it pushes them up in the rankings over time so in theory you want more people to Click on your titan other words. You WANNA appeal them. You know him by appealing to them. And getting more clicks. It will help you rank higher than your competition over time. The air gave the first tip of adding the year at the end of your title tag. The second from me is evoked curiosity. Good example of this is like the seven benefits of green tea. Number six will shock. You put number six shock you in parentheses so doing little things like that. What we found is people like wait. What's number six? The click through Lonzo skimmed the six one and if they like it though backup read the rest of the post and then you know finish it all off but the point. I'm trying to make is voting curiosity. It is a great way to get people to click through. Yeah I think I'll give bonus tip to that one. I think it's really important for people to understand copywriting. I think Neil night we can agree. Some of the smartest people we know. The best entrepreneurs are exceptional copywriters and copywriting a part of it is persuasion and understanding what drives people understanding what people are interested in the more. You can improve at that the better so I recommend reading two books. One is called breakthrough advertising. And you can actually buy a real copy of that now. I think you pay like one hundred twenty five bucks. You combine the letters an look if you're crafty. I'm sure you can find. Pdf's for both of them. It's not that hard to find the. Pdf's leave it at that and then number three for me would be thinking about how you can do on surp- Seo's mean exactly so surp- is search engine result page and what's going on right now is. Google is occupying more and more of the clicks. Meaning that if you live on a search result page over. Fifty percent of people will not click through to your website. So what you can do is whether you're let's say you rank zero so you had the rich snippet with. Let's say you have like how to tie tie. You have like you know. Fourteen tips right there and people can see it right on the search result page. What you should be doing there is you'd be thinking about okay. How can that brand my website in there or in one of those fourteen tips? How can I entice them to click through site? Because if they don't click there. I'm losing that traffic. I can't retarget those people I can't collect the email I do a lot of different things right. So you've got to do everything in your power to not only add value but somehow brand yourself a little bit. So you're doing as much as you can to defend against Google. Taking more. And more of those clicks off number four. One thing that you can end up doing that. We're not seeing a lot of people do is using Faq Schema markup you start using Faq scheme markup on your site right and efficacy Skua Markup funny enough draws more attention to your surp- result if you're number one a lot of times you see less. Click throughs but if you're lower on the page you'll start seeing a boost in placements. You wouldn't get as many from what we've seen if you didn't have it but by having it you draw more attention in a muzy rankings up so if you're number one you do at UC less clicks but if you're lower on the page at it you'll go higher up and you'll start getting mark Lex Yup and then the final thing. I'll say this is a little more related to. Let's say you're doing facebook or Google ads. You WanNa be thinking about okay. How often are you gonna change things up so what I mean by that? So facebook for example. If you keep showing the same ad over and over and over ad fatigue is gonNA kick in very quickly. So you got to think about how you can when you're making new ads. Maybe make a whole batch of like five ten or fifteen of them and just constantly rotate them on. Maybe every two weeks every three weeks or making new batches because that's going to constantly keep your click the rate up if you're not keeping things fresh similar to how you would with. Seo and you're not aligning with the times changing the messaging and understanding what people what then ultimately you click. The rate's GonNa drop and then what's going to happen especially during paid. Your costs are going to increase because click the rate goes hired in Walden. Cpa's also higher as well right

Ticketmaster Promises Billions in Refunds for Cancelled Concerts

"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business words daily on this. Wednesday April twenty. Second you know that Katy Perry concert. You're looking forward to okay. I was looking forward to it. Back in the pre pandemic era well Yeah that that's not gonNA happen at least not until twenty twenty one. She said recently. She's not alone either. Thirty thousand shows were cancelled OR POSTPONED DUE TO COVA. Nineteen so far. According to Jared Smith President of ticketmaster. That's the gigantic ticket agency. Owned by the world's largest concert promoter live nation. And it's not like those concerts and ball games are coming back anytime soon. The mayors of New York and Los Angeles don't anticipate allowing any large scale gatherings until there's a cure or vaccine for the corona virus according to variety at the earliest. That'll be late this year but it could take much longer and that uncertainty is causing a big problem for ticketmaster. The company had fantastic year delivering one hundred fifteen million tickets in thirty one countries in two thousand nineteen ticketmaster sells more than thirty billion dollars worth of tickets annually in twenty twenty was predicted to be a banner year that is until Corona virus now ticketmaster. Meinie refund billions of dollars in ticket sales late last week. The company announced that it will refund some ticket. Purchasers starting on May first customers who shows have been cancelled or who don't want to attend them on rescheduled. Dates can apply for refunds. They'll have thirty days to do so customers who shows reschedule later. We'll have a rolling thirty DAYS TO APPLY FOR REFUNDS TICKET. Masters new policy is almost exactly that of rival. Ag which announced it's refund program a few days earlier but ticketmaster is also using a big incentive to persuade customers not to ask for refunds so it can hang onto some of that cash according to variety if a show is cancelled altogether customers can take credit worth one hundred fifty percent of the ticket cost in the plan called Rock. When you're ready customers can apply that credit to an event to be held when the world opens up once again ticket masters. New Refund policy follows significant complaints from critics who claim the company's been holding onto customers money unfairly in response. Ticketmaster explained that it doesn't keep all those billions of dollars in ticket sales rather every week pays concert and festival promoters out of those proceeds so far this year that amounts to more than two billion dollars. The company said at a tweet normally ticketmaster has little trouble refunding tickets for cancelled events but when the entire concert industry shuts down overnight the company needs to recoup those funds before it can issue refunds from a corporate perspective. It's one mammoth cashflow nightmare. But it's also a nightmare for people who are suddenly unemployed and who need those refunds to pay the rent or buy groceries people spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on concert tickets and now in the face of indefinite postponements. They need those funds back. But lack of clarity in delays around refunds is made some customers so angry that they're turning to the courts. Matthew Mcmillan a national hockey league fan in Wisconsin was aggravated that ticket. Resellers STUB HUB hadn't refunded the price of tickets to a suspended hockey game so earlier. This month filed a five million dollar class action lawsuit against the company according to Billboard magazine. Stop Hub resells about five billion dollars worth of tickets. Every year like ticketmaster in order to issue thousands of refunds. It says it first needs to recoup the cash paid to the original ticket holders in some ways stubs. Problem is even more tangled than ticket masters since its tickets come from thousands of individual sellers and think about that for a second if your brain let you the original ticket holders purchase tickets to live events that are now cancelled or iffy. Where'd they buy them? Probably ticketmaster or A. E. G. Stop up now. Says IF AN EVENT IS CANCELLED IT WON'T ISSUE REFUNDS. Instead it'll give ticket holders a coupon worth one hundred twenty percent of the original ticket price that credit will be good for a year stubhub said in a statement late in. March. By month's end the company said almost three quarters of ticket holders had accepted the credit but that class action lawsuit filed by the Wisconsin Hockey Fan. He says he bought the tickets on. The basis of stub hubs longstanding. Money-back guarantee. Now he's asking the courts to forbid stubhub from issuing those credits and force it to refund the cash according to billboard the customers lawyer accused stub hub of quote putting its hands in the customer's pockets at a time of the greatest. Financial suffering in recent history stub declined to comment on the lawsuit. According to The New York Times. The refund mess is just one of the problems hitting the entire music

Gretchen Carlson: From Miss America to Bombshell Journalist

"Today Gretchen. Carlson joins us on skimmed from the couch as a career journalist. She's also become an advocate for equality and dignity in the workplace. Carlson sued the former Fox News Chairman and CEO. Roger Ailes in two thousand sixteen. Her bombshell lawsuit ignited national conversations about sexual harassment and has inspired her advocacy work. We are very excited for this conversation Gretchen. Welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me. I feel like I've known you guys for so long in. It's like so great to be able to have this discussion. So thanks for having me. So we're GONNA start our all interviews with just skim your resume for us. Oh my gosh well. I'll start with the latest editions which were never expected to be on my resume. Which are you know being one of the poster women for sexual harassment in the workplace? That's not necessarily something you aspire to when you're putting together your first resume and talking about goals and challenges in a life of head of you but I would say that what else has been on my resume over. My life has been series of accomplishments where challenges were in front of me and I really went for them and so the same thing is true for this latest endeavor that I've been doing for the last three years which is to really try and tackle this problem of workplace harassment. So that would be at the top of my resume. Now the very short version following that would be Fox News for eleven years before that five years at CBS news before that a lot of local markets including Dallas Cleveland Cincinnati and Richmond before that being the first classical violinist to be Miss America and before that studying at Oxford University getting my degree from Stanford University. Being High School Valedictorian and being a concert violinist as a child. See your super relaxed. I I know after. I've had some milestone birthdays. I become trying to become my new goal to be more chill and it's actually really liberating to be more relaxed and just let things sort of ebb and flow. Women are reared to be perfectionists and socialized to not color outside the lines. And I'm really really really trying to do more of that and advocating that for younger women as well. We've seen and heard a lot about you recently. Obviously we saw you on TV for years. And then we've seen movies depicting your story. What's one thing that you can't Google? You can't watch that people don't know about you. Oh my gosh all things I cannot do so I cannot whistle her. I think it's actually is genetic I can't do. You can't do that either. That is genetic okay so those two things. I can't parallel park. Oh Oh my gosh yeah. I only have done it once in my life to pass my driver's sixteen years old. Just got a card. That is supposed to be able to do that for me. But I haven't had time to set it up. Tesla I did. I've tried to it works. Oh my Gosh my relationship with driving. Oh my gosh okay so sometime this weekend or whenever I have time I need to really actually read the manual and figure that out I grew up a Chubby kid. I struggled with my weight for all of my teenage years and I actually feel that. That is really inspirational for young women especially today. Because they're so much more emphasis on exterior which. I always try to advocate for for young people and older women to that really. It's you know it's about what's inside. We should build our self esteem from the inside out. People look at television personalities. And you probably get the same thing with what you do that. They think that there haven't been any struggles or that they're just perfect and that certainly hasn't been the case with my life at all. I mean I really feel like successes truly appreciated when you've gone through struggles and failures and overcome those those hurdles. I totally agree one at just sort of take a step back. What was your family situation? What was your childhood like? Just Kinda give us who you were before you became a person on TV. Well I look at my family. Life is idyllic said small town in Minnesota with parents who believed in me and told me every day. I could be anything I wanted to be in this world and that was just incredibly important to hear that every single day they of course said with the caveat is GonNa take a lot of work and so I grew up with the Protestant Work Ethic. You know of incredible hard work. I also grew up with huge philanthropic spirit. My grandfather was a minister. My parents truly believed in giving back to the community and I think that that's the greatest gift that I can pass along to my two teenage children to understand that to truly be a whole individual. It's about giving to others. That was a huge part of my upbringing and a huge part of the work. I'm doing now and where that came from. How quickly did you realize did other people realize you were a violin prodigy that came about as a total fluke? I actually apparently? According to my parents I would hear commercial sort of songs on TV. And I would go in. Plunk them out on the piano. And my mom's like I think we need to get her piano lessons and then we went up the street to piano teacher. Who's our neighbor and she said. Oh she'll never be any good at piano. Hands are way too small and so why don't you go up to the local school and you know talk to them about a different instrument and I've got my first violin and it was just tiny you know it was like a foot long and I started playing it and it just clicked. It just became who I was. What's it like to be really good at something that young? I loved it. It taught me discipline. Where even if you put in ten minutes or thirty minutes a day got better at something and for kids at so important. Because that's something carried with me for the rest of my life that discipline I think about every single day release shaped however approached everything else in my life. It's something nobody can take away for me. It's a talent. It's something that I have made by myself and nobody can ever take that away and I think that's so crucial especially for young people today to be able to hone skills that they own. You went on to go to some of the most prestigious schools in the world and then became Miss America lightly. We talk us. They're like WHOA. Is that light Unexpected never on my radar screen. What's my mother? When I was seventeen I burned out on the violin and I quit and my parents were devastated and so I went off to concentrate academics and when I was doing some time over at Oxford University in England and got a phone call from my mom. She had gotten a brochure in the mail. On the Miss America Organization. She called me and she said I found something for you to do. I said what and she described to me. She said it's fifty percent talent. You have that it's thirty percent interview. You're smart you can do this and I'm like yeah mom but I'm also short I'm also from Minnesota which is not pageant state. I also played classical violin. And that's never one and I've never been patches ever before and nor have ever watched them and she was like well. I think you can do this. And my mom's an incredibly influential person in my life and is my sharp critic but also my biggest cheerleader was her motivation and wanting she wanted me to play the violin again. I mean that one hundred percent. This was to try and get me back onto my music career and so you know she and I became a team. I stopped out a Stanford my senior year because I realized if I was going to actually do this to do it. One hundred fifty percent had to give it one hundred and fifty percent and I couldn't be doing my studies at Stanford and tried to prepare fascinating and I want to just pause for a second because I would say you doing that. It's probably going against the popular decision or assumption Which is going against the grain. A little bit too. Like you know what? Actually I'm going to prioritize this. A lot of people would say stay in school. And obviously we're going to talk about how you went against the grain and other parts of your life talk just like what your personality was at that time what. Your confidence level was at a time. Well it was pretty high because I had done tremendous amount of violent competitions which by the way I never faced any gender discrimination or sexism with regard to that all they picked to play the best. They didn't care if you're a girl or boy and the same thing with my academics. I never any kind of discrimination early on in my life and so I was used to setting high standards and high goals and this was something that I knew nothing about but my mom and I really researched it from afar. Instead of participating. In a lot of competitions we researched it and we realize that for me if I was going to try and really try and achieve this that I couldn't be doing these two things at the same time when I went to tell the Dean at Stanford who happened to be a woman and I told nobody what I was doing by the way when I went to tell her though because I had to. She told me she thought it was the stupidest thing she'd ever heard of. And I said well okay. Let's see how it let's see how it turns out. Listen there's a tremendous amount of subjectivity in these kinds of competitions and lock and all of that but I needed to be truly prepared in order to have a chance. Say You win. You go on to become a journalist and you ultimately make the jump to Fox News where you become the Co host of the number one cable news morning show. You were there at a time at the network when it was just skyrocketing when you started there. Did you understand the impact? The network would have and the direction it would take. As kind of the cultural force that it became. Never I went there because it was an opportunity to a morning show five days a week. I was at CBS. When I originally went CBS. I was a correspondent. I was traveling the world. My goal and television was always to do a morning show. The goal was always to be able to do a show that incorporated hard news. Where he could showcase your your smarts but also showcase your sense of humor and lighter things and so I got the opportunity finally at CBS to do their weekend morning show and then when the Fox opportunity came about to do five days a week I mean that was just really what I had worked so hard to achieve and so I went over there you know as a as a total novice and Fox was just sort of starting out. At the time I learned a tremendous amount from cable because cable was totally different than network news in the sense that it was almost all ad Lib on their forget one of the first days I was there and I was doing a different show than the morning show and one line came over the AP wire that said something about that. The person that had assassinated leader in the Middle East been caught and the producers said to me in my ear. Just go with this for like three minutes. I was like what I don't even know who they're talking about. I don't even know if I can pronounce this name and I just had to dig deep and luckily my life. I had a lot of experience at doing that. Not exactly in this realm but I just started talking and it made me realized from that day. Forward that wow this whole different craft when you're at living and not reading teleprompter and so cable news is just a completely different talent than what I had been doing before. So we'll say that that was extremely beneficial to me to grow as a person and to get better at my

Methane emissions from burning fossil fuels has been 'vastly underestimated,' study says

"Methane emissions to you and me to the atmosphere have increased by approximately one hundred fifty percent over the past three centuries but it has been difficult for researchers to determine exactly where those emissions originate methane can be omitted naturally. Don't look at those cows now as well as from human activity but researchers at the University of Rochester measured methane levels an ancient air samples and found that scientists have been vastly underestimating. The amount of methane that humans are emitting into the atmosphere. No no via fossil fuels in a paper published in nature the researchers indicate reducing fossil fuel. Use is therefore a key target in curbing. Climate Change Methane is the second largest human caused contributor to climate change after carbon dioxide but methane has a relatively short shelf life. Compared to if we stopped emitting all carbon dioxide today highs co two levels in the atmosphere would still persist for a long time says one of the researchers methane is important because if we make changes to our current methane emissions. It's going to be reflected in the climate more quickly. They broke down. How much methane is released? Naturally how much released by human activity? They drilled and collected ice cores from Greenland ice core samples. Act like time capsules that contain air bubbles with small quantities of ancient air trapped inside. Well that's where you find the ancient aliens then. They got breath that don't by measuring the carbon fourteen isotopes an air for more than two hundred years ago. The researchers found almost all methane emitted to the atmosphere was biological nature until about eighteen. Seventy why that's when fossil fuels began to be used. The levels of naturally released fossil methane are about ten times lower than previous research reported so the manmade fossil fuel component is higher than expected. Twenty five to forty percent higher they found if anthropogenic methane emissions. Make up a large part of the total reducing emissions from human activities like fossil fuel. Use will have a greater impact on curbing future global warming than scientists previously

you're crazy more he's played third before he's hitting home runs off the hook but you have nothing to lose their team is losing get to know them somewhere else what I as I think is no place else for him I I mean I well I I mean I wouldn't well I would I would say they I mean I'm a it's like if if first thing I would do is to to tell if they listen we will band you seventh I'm sorry you're not hitting now you start hitting will move you back up but if he gets an attitude then you get them on the bench yeah I agree with one hundred fifty percent knocking down the line up yeah and if you know what if there's if there's no moral supply and make me feel place secular he doesn't come back yeah I'm looking to have another half the season here if they don't make a dress that looks something like we're talking about they're not going to win it's not going to it's not that it's just not gonna happen are you you got yeah he does he vomit Smith into left field it's he's he's great are you in it but it's awful and and and to put in the right there would be a better because you selected that makes no sense either natural first baseman it's a wonderful fantastic places to fish you pretty well you know optical fleet he's awful the ball goes dresses well three four conscious given right it's it's it's it's hard to watch plays these good now I. dag I think he's better than the people go credit for masonite you make great plays and and and and and involved in it but here's the thing here's a guy thirty home runs eight cents record I'm not touching him he's gonna stay for as we I mean I like dummies with a lot he's okay let Phil I lived there for now you can hear the last thing you want to do is is put Alonzo at third and then is average drops no home runs give give give you a break in the fifth set something they broke I leave it because I which would drop that the address that we may get a hot air is I mean he's got a comfort zone now at first base yeah and it's not thirty home runs all star game home runs I mean I'm not you're a smart guy why I'm asking you how do you explain macneil played out of position and respect the fact just anomaly that's the that's van wagon I mean when when when it when the season ended I said okay they've got their second baseman you know so and I I love love and I I also thought that that when when they got I I said okay we don't know yet about Alonzo I figured it would be a platoon it first you know Smith and and along with that Alonso took up took off and I'm like you you can't mess with somebody that I would put him at third base if he said but put me at our I can I can hampered but Dominic first but it is now I'm not take a chance if if if that was ever going to happen which I don't think it will that's all we have is we all see that not now that's all they know that that's a typical met moved it you know all this and he has started on home thirty one home was at the break anyway winds up with thirty five home no leave alone and stand yes I catch the dominance with me going into the stands I'm I I'm leaving their he's my all time is a full time left field okay dalam in the order and plus you know freight you know you gotta play Frasier for now because he's playing well and maybe somebody take off your hands first two in Brooklyn still wish on the planet yeah good morning Sir how are you all right was going on I'm not what it would talk about the ankh is about Jim Belton I remember him I remember him while he was a character an oddball he always expressed his opinion and he never meant any harm.

"Infrastructure. It's like we can make things happen with capital in a way that we cannot with a lot of other institutions, but all of that said the way you try and help schools performs one I'm pro charter in the sense that I think. If you have different modes of delivering education to children, it's a good thing. Parents having choices generally a good thing. I'm even open to because I as a parent of two young kids any parent who chooses to home school their kids must really love their kids because that is so much work. Sure. And so if there are parents who want to take that on, and maybe pull some resources and like like home school their kids. I think we should be open to then supportive of that. In terms of improving the schools themselves. What the data shows is that technology. Unfortunately is not like a cure all net. All yeah. In these drop, laptops, and all these kids slaps and everything is fine. Yeah. No fortnight. And that's it. Yeah. It it. It technology generally tends to make strong school stronger and does not help school. So it's like a turnaround thing. So what does work pink teachers more works? You know, you get better teachers in retain them. And that's a proven difference maker. I would definitely try and update the curricula. So that they're not rote learning trying to prepare your kid for college. Because college in in many ways, our educational system set up for like, an industrial era comedy doesn't really exist anymore. And so among the things that we've done wrong one is that we've over prescribed college to everybody where we said, hey, if you don't go to college your life is over nodding vigorously, yes. And and then meet. Meanwhile, in this the dark part we then made college two and a half times more expensive. And why the reason why is not to pay teachers it's not even to pay for new buildings is to pay for administrators the administrator to student ratio went up one hundred fifty percent. And like shocker the price went up like two hundred percent. Aren't this subsidies, though, that we've directed at higher education a large part of that story? Well, the subsidies did not cause the prices to rise. And let me explain this. So what happens is the price tag goes up. Parents were like gave no choice, but to pay because all your kids like his awhile. I gotta go to college. So hey turns out it's like fifty thousand dollars now when you know like five years ago, it would have been forty. And then the parents are like oh snap. What do I do and also helpful governments? Like, it's. Okay. Well, we'll give you the whole thing like just like the whole loan. So now, we're up to one point five trillion dollars in student loan debt up from less than one hundred billion in like ninety nine. I'm dissolved relatively recent invention. And this one point five trillion in school owns most of it for college up to about thirty eight K ahead. And and it's like this crazy anchor on overnight like block cement on top of our young people where they're not gonna buy homes and not to start families. They're not going to start businesses. They're just going to be sitting.

"Don't understand why someone would sell certain products when there's such superior products available, and they can be tricky. You know, some of the companies are coming out with these weird blended indexes with weird names that you never heard of before. And they're designed to be low volatility indexes, which which makes it cheaper for the company to allow you to participate in those indexes on the options that they are quiet to buy a hedge it so there's literally index is out there that will give you one hundred and fifty percent returns of an index. But those indexes typically will make much less than the s&p five hundred will. But if you make one hundred fifty percent, maybe it could be worth it. You have to do the math. And in some cases, it could make sense. But you really need someone that is an expert in analyzing east because the theory is great, right? You make money when the market goes up or when the goes up. And you don't lose when it goes down. But how much are you realistically expected to make? I think the very best indexed annuities. That are on the market today will have an expected return of six and a half to eight percent, depending on how how they're structured. Have. You think about it? The average investor in the stock market. Unusual funds over twenty thirty year periods averages about three point six after the fees all the expenses and the poor timing decisions that they generally make. So if you don't do well in the market, and your the kind of person that you just tend to get scared when the market goes down or sitting on the sidelines and not doing anything because you're scared and now you're making us two percent interest or two and a half percent interest. You're losing money to buying power. So that's not a good solution. If you're always by selling low that's not a good solution. So for many people sixty eight percent is a really good outcome, especially if they can't screw it up by making poor decisions or if they get to nervous being inequities, and therefore they're on the sidelines making nothing so. We love helping people make smart decisions. It's very very critical that you get yourself educated.

"So yes, I mean the first year business goal was really. I mean, if you think about it. I was there in ninety eight through two thousand and so the bubble the tapa was on fire and people were leaving to start companies. And I was like, wow. This is the greatest thing I've ever seen and it wasn't really thinking about McKenzie per se towards the end. I was suddenly thinking a lot about it and realizing I didn't love being a consultant. I'm a doer like my to this day like I hated creating strategy and creating tactics and then handing your beautiful baby over and the Heat's on the whole it. Drove me crazy. And then they might not even execute it on the way you envision. And then it's kind of like, why did we give them advice in the first place? A lot of that a lot of beautiful materials on a shelf. And so I wanted to go do. But then the the rub was I owed MacKenzie a lot of money, and I didn't have a visa, right? I was an immigrant and so tech start land while very attractive was not a play. The paid cash they paid this called equity that wasn't liquid and they didn't know how to do visas that well, and so that drove me to Goldman which I thought would be this small steppingstone to do get those two major things kind of quote unquote faxed and then ended up staying there for eleven years. So what was the turning point? Obviously, you spent a lot of time inside of Goldman. I would imagine that. It was a good experience for you overall. Yeah, amazing experience. So what was the turning point? That said, I I'm ready. It's go time, and I'm going to the startup world. So I think a lot of it was when the crisis happened. National crisis Owado nine I felt I had lost my way of what was important in life. So you know that little community. I grew up on still where my parents live. My parents were community builders, and I couldn't really construct for them. What the point was of what I did. And that was the point where I felt I really on hooked because I'm a believer by nature. Right. When I believe you get one hundred fifty percent of me all the time. And I just lost that sense of belief. So you know, I started to talk to some mentors. I had one particular mentor, actually, the CEO of a really big companies looking valley who said you need to be an operator. Right. I see this over and over again, you have this operator, gene, come work in a, you know, come work with me. And actually it didn't go work with him. But I worked with my other mentor benef-, but they managed to kind of Mark math CEO and founder of Salesforce, who's amazing and market and the best sales guy ever. So he sold me on. Hey, come work with me. You know, you'll learn so much about how to operate and run a company like far more than you will at a tiny startup because I was looking at a London tiny startups and you'll for a year and a half. He was completely right? You know, you see when you're at a company like sales. I that was at that scale. It was about five thousand people growing like a weed. You got to see one hundred things in a week where maybe in a startup you would see two things because you're not at that scale. And you're doing them all versus at a Salesforce. Right. You have teams that are experts in everything you touch, right? If you're doing an acquisition or if you're renting a building or if you're thinking about going into new country, right? You're part of the team. But there's a team versus a startup. There's you. And so that was a wonderful transition. It was a hard one had to take a swing for the fences. But I'm glad I did it. So when you say that was it sort of did it appear like a step down. Did you have to take a reduction in salary do it? Yeah. Yeah. And your ego can get definitely when you. Think about people listening, right? Your ego can really get there. Like, I will admit like there was a little bit of a gulp on comp. I was very lucky. I was in a place where my, you know, were both my husband, and I work. So at least we have that balance, although he did the startup. I I supported him..

And yet, I see men and women who were promoted into frontline sales management roles who wrestle with that. And you ask them how they measure success in the answers. All may.

We're gonna we're gonna have to get this person to realize that the only way that you can consistently deliver the number grow, a scalable winning business that grows year over. A year is to shed that notion of you know, that it's about you. Because it isn't it, isn't and. And they can be on one deal and one quarter may be but that doesn't scale and and until you can work through other people and with other people and stead of trying to be macgyver. You know that last week of the quarter. It just doesn't scale and you'll never get out of that fire drill lifestyle. Right. You know, I've I've been involved in a number of the stories in the book a few of them that relate specifically end, but I'll speak to to to the idea generally that that the sales manager who gets out of that node who eventually realizes. Oh, okay. This isn't all about me. It doesn't you know that the delivering the quarterly number in the annual number is not on my shoulders. This is about me developing my team providing support to them it's certain at certain points right in those scenarios rhino..
