Fresh update on "one hundred fifty percent" discussed on Ali on the Run Show
"Felt better because of fat I've slowed down a lot. I. Make Time for the things that I've realized are a huge priority to me and I've also cleaned house lot of I've let go of people and relationships that were talks ed or not serving me In an it's just sort of been like a a major. Upheaval of you know what I want, what's not working, what is and how do I want to move forward and what is outlook lake. And I didn't put any pressure on it and I, think that's kind of. The luxury that I feel like I pad is you know have so much time and we don't know how long this time will be in. So like I just want to relish in and really enjoy. Life and I feel like I've lived more than I ever lived and I don't know of anyone else would ever say that in this year but I really mean it and while yes, I haven't. Traveled around the world or like done anything crazy. But for me I've lived more I think on more present and I more I feel more love in general. Is I just receiving? So much more. From my community than I ever had. In the past and I think that's Hopefully, what a lot of people feel I feel like people are leaning into each other and and leaning more into empathy and kindness, and really realizing that life is not about all the. Filters and flush. Fen. Appearance of it. You know it it really does help. I. Think this year has really helped a lot of people reevaluate. Totally. I. Oh I love that. We also now we have a whole new topic we need to dive into because GonNa talk about the toxic relationships can you talk about how to know that you're in one and I don't mean necessarily a romantic relationship but toxic friendship, any kind of toxic relationship in your life, and do you have any advice for facing that or how how do you remove topic people from Your Life? How do you do it in and how should we all be doing that? Because it's not easy Totally For me. A big flag red flag is invisibility. You don't feel visible. So. For the person on the other side is either making you feel unimportant invaluable whether that's your time your space your energy. And they're taking more than they're giving and I'm not saying like a friendship. Is always super equal and give or take as. One. Person needs a lot more. Than the other and or weeks or months, but it's just a consistent of okay. You're not showing up in the same way that I am and I want someone to show up in give this relationship as much as I'm giving. and it can look different but you just. You. Feel like almost taking advantage of in a way and four overall just more confused and upset than than like happy right like you're like of all the good times and all the bad times and seeing a lot more bad times with this person and just feeling not great. And then what to do with that I would say okay. So once you've identified like the problem, right, it's what I need to communicate to get what I need. Will I guess the step one would be like, what do I need right? What do I want from this person I am not getting and then said to would be what do I need to communicate to this person? To get what I need. And then I would suggest having that conversation of. Okay this is how it's been going. This is what's not working for me. This is what woodwork for me how are you feeling? And see where they're at where they need us. Some people might surprise you and have no idea, their behavior and some people. Might not surprise you. And not might you know might Agreed to part ways and how that can look like. You know you share and they don't agree or they get confrontational or defensive end. It doesn't really get resolved and nothing really moves forward in a productive way, and so then I would make the choice of like. Okay I'm just going to focus my energy on the people that are filling me up instead of draining. So I like to think of like fountains drains like if you made a list of all your friends that are fountains, all your friends and family that are drains or lovers like I feel like it's similar to hell yes or a hell no someone's either a drain or they're either a fountain you know what I mean and so I would start focusing on your fountains not that you have to like write a letter of like we're not talking to each other anymore and this friendships like their needs doesn't need a contract but I think organically with time when you start focusing on. The things that fill you up the. Others. Kind of die off and fall off. It's really good advice and you and I feel like for everyone listening like you know you know if there's someone in your life that you feel horrible every time you talk to them or interact with them like you know. Yeah and you can't become right like if you can't be yourself or speak your mind because you don't feel safer, you don't feel comfortable or you feel judged to me that's I can't be in a relationship like that like I need to be able to feel comfortable. Obviously, it's not always fun when it's like a hard or tough conversation but at least I wanna feel comfortable just being myself. And so I guess really figuring out to like the non-negotiables in for V. that's a non negotiable. Totally. Okay. So right now. Whether our lives are wonderful challenging I think that one thing that we all share is that we all have days or even just moments where we may be don't feel like showing up whether it's for a work zoom meeting or we don't feel like going on our run or we don't feel like you know we just don't feel like it whatever it is. Is there any advice you can give us or anything that you personally do for how we can psych ourselves up when we're just not feeling it right now? Yeah I think I think that you know. Are You A. Allier. You like a high. Achiever type a person and you tell. Okay. Well, I think we're speaking the same language but I think it really. Depends on the personality of the person. So like for example, if I'm Super Taipei than I'm GonNa have a really hard time, not showing up to work or showing up. To anything at this time at one, hundred, fifty percent because that's usually what I'm operating at. Great. So what I would say to a type, a personality or someone that always gives one hundred or always gives Andrea and fifty is is like I'M GONNA give myself permission to show up to the zoom meeting at fifty percent. And I think. That mental sort of like shift of like, Oh, I'm I don't actually have to like the expectations, the pressure and sort of just this like.

Retail Sales Plunge A Record 16.4% In April
"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. And we're just not seeing yet and he kind of evidence in the early. May data a bunch of a rebound Andrew
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. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you
These 5 Tips Will Increase Your CTR
"To another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about five tips that will increase your C. T. R. That is your click through rate. In this case we are talking about. Click the rate from I think we're talking about overall right organically and paid correct. Yes mainly organic funny enough yet. You have a lot of data on this because Click flow. But yeah we're mainly talking about organic click throughs. I've done a lot of tests on this funding using your software. You have a lot of data because you just have so many users. So why don't you go first Let's crank through five tips. That will help. People get results litter down less than thirty days. I'll make mine stupidly simple. So when you're looking at a Google search result page a lot of people whenever they're writing content. Let's say the New Year hits this year in Twenty Twenty Years Twenty Twenty. One people often forget to change the date. Now when you change a date under title from Two Thousand Nineteen Twenty twenty or just changes to the right year. Your click the rate. Actually chumps fifty to one hundred fifty percent. That's across the board based on data that we've seen with click flow so changed. It's another thing that works. Really well as vocal curiosity or allow matchy backup one more step so one thing. We didn't cover at the beginning of this podcast. Episode is the reason you want higher. Click the races. Let's say you go to Google. Do a search and a thousand other people do the same. Search that you did. 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

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.

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

Where we left off last week and for listeners who did not listen to episode. I highly recommend that you check that out. Plus also ruined was on the podcast. Almost a year ago to discuss stable coins. Generally. So if you don't understand sable coins that gives a really good overview of all the different types of stable coins. And now in this past episode last week's episode and this episode, we are diving deep into maker dough and how it works. And where we elect last week was we had started a talk a little bit about multilateral tie. That kind of talked a lot about the single collateral die system. So Rune can you describe for me multicultural die, and let's do the same as we did last week where you describe the process by which somebody creates a multilateral die for themselves and then redeems without their collateral falling below the one hundred fifty percent threshold. So it's actually the same process. Right. It's just now you have a choice of using many different tokens. So it would be you know, it could be something. Like, you take token stuck right? So like apple shares that have been turned into tokens that are able UC twenty tokens theorem in some sort of regulated environment regulated front, and then just deposit them into the system. Just like you do with theory and single die. And then the system will have some specific risk remers for that for that particular type of collateral using that depends on how risky it is. Right. So something like stocks is going to have a sort of a medium level of of risk for evidence to it. Right. So it's not gonna be as considered us risky and expensive expensive to borrow with something like theory cryptocurrencies, but also it's not as stable considered a stable. Something like token ice bonds, or maybe other stable coins. And yes, you put in your your assets, you take out a loan, and you can then choose to wait for as long as you want before you pay back that loan. But of course, when you pay back the loan. You also have to pay what's in maker call disability fee, which is basically the interest rate of the system. Right. The cost to borrow the die from a system over time. And once you paid back the system automatically unlucky collateral allows you to retrieve your your token is stuck out again. And the reason why this is entering to do is. Because it allows you to keep your exposure to the token stuck but still unluck still excess liquidity in it, right? And actually spend sort of spend the money that's in the stock without actually selling stuck. So if the price of the stock goes up, you actually still get get the benefit of that. And then later, you can choose to pay a debt, and then just get you your full exes. Like, take it back into your own wallet. Yeah. Yeah. I find the system so interesting because it's basically a way to just give yourself alone out of assets that you already have when thing that I want to ask though is with multilateral die. Let's say eventually there comes a point where maybe there's twenty different assets that are allowed as collateral for the maker Dow system, so let's say that I own only two of those assets. Can I create a die for myself with only two or could? I e what if I only have one could I could I make a single collateral die for myself at that point or how much diversification will you require from people who are making multi collateral die for themselves. Yeah. So I mean, so it'd be clear because the so. It. It's like multiple adult doesn't mean that you have to use multiple collateral like a user when you when you take a loan. So it really works. Exactly the same way. It's just you have you have different choices in what kind of glad you want to use. So if you only have let's say a token, I stuck only have let's say auger rep tokens or digits tokens or bitcoins. Whatever even if there's a thousand different collateral types, you can still get direct access to the loan. Just like the way the system currently works. And the reason is because the risk is pulled across all users. Yeah, exactly..
