New book charts changing tactics of fossil fuel lobby
"2021 brings a new president and new priorities for climate change solutions. How quickly can the. Us pivot toward a cleaner. Climate policy penn state university professor. Michael mann's new book. The new climate war the fight to take back. Our planet has some ideas. Michael welcome back to climate cast. Thanks great to be with you. Give us a thumbnail sketch of your book. What's the message here. The message here is actually pretty simple. Look climate change. Denial is no longer tenable fossil fuel interests. Those who've done their bidding. Those forces of inaction the inactive. Est says i call them simply recognize that they can credibly claim that climate change isn't real that it isn't human caused in that it isn't doing real damage now and so they've turned to other tactics in an effort to delay that necessary transition away from fossil fuels Moving attention away from the need for systemic solutions for policies that incentivize renewable energy and put a price on carbon to individual lifestyle changes Another one is false. Solutions the idea that there are simple technological fixes that somehow don't necessitate us getting off of fossil fuels. Michael twenty twenty one brings a new president may be what i would call an opportunity point for climate solutions and making them a priority. What has president elect biden proposed that heads in the direction you want to see. The biden plan the plan that he has put forward. is a bold climate plan It includes massive investment government investment in renewable energy which is very important part of the solution. There is support for carbon pricing of putting a price on carbon polluters pay when they dumped carbon pollution into the atmosphere right. Now they don't have to pay for that so the biden administration is Emphasizing the importance of those actions They are also reengaging the global community Reasserting our support for international treaties like the paris treaty and in fact for going beyond the paris treaty. So we know the bottom line where the rubber meets. The road is the atmosphere and when we talk about these policy changes how quickly can policy changes start to have an impact on our atmosphere. Yeah you know. There's some good news there. The prevailing thinking a decade or so ago is that when we stop emitting carbon. The planet will still warm up for decades. There is a substantial revision now in understanding of the problem that we can stop emitting carbon in the atmosphere we will see the fruits of those efforts Pretty quickly and that's why it is important for us to act dramatically over the next ten years. What would you say to those who are apprehensive about climate solutions and the economy. And what will you be watching for the next four years. Yeah what i would say is that you know there's a fallacy that somehow we have to choose between the economy and the environment that's simply not true if we act on the climate crisis we will save literally trillions of dollars because extreme weather events are costing tens of billions of dollars every year here in the united states alone there were record number of them in two thousand twenty and so it's a win win we act on this problem now We can avert destroying this planet for future generations and we potentially have a healthier economy as a result of it. Michael man with penn state university. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective today Thank you very much. Paul was a pleasure talking with you.
Despite La Nia, 2020 could be hottest year on record
"Just how far out of balance is earth's climate system when the numbers are in two thousand twenty is likely the first or second warmest year on record globally and that makes the past seven years the seven warmest years on record. It's an unprecedented run of warmth. In the global surface temperature record dating back to eighteen. Eighty penn state university professor. Michael man has spent a career tracking climate trans. Hi michael welcome back to climate cast. Thanks it's good to be with you. Paul let's start with twenty twenty. Where does it look like. Global temperatures will finish. There's a good chance that twenty twenty will be the warmest year on record. That's particularly surprising given. It's a la nina year. We have a la- nina event. The tropical pacific that tends to cool global temperatures a bit michael in a balanced climate system. We would expect a mix of warmer and colder than average years. How far out of balance is earth's climate system to have the past seven years be the warmest on record. Yeah well it's way out of balance and in fact a few years ago we estimated the likelihood that we would see these sort of streaks from chance alone in the absence of human caused warming and that probability is tiny one in ten thousand In one of our estimates as one article an article in discover magazine summarizing findings stated that the chances are a snowball's chance in hell basically is how likely we would see that from natural factors alone so when we include the human factor of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the models that we are able to reproduce these stretches of record warm temperatures that we're seeing we saw what you might call one benefit from the pandemic this year it looks like global greenhouse gas emissions are down about seven percent but i noticed the atmospheric. Co two levels aren't budging michael. What does that tell us about how much we need to lower emissions to get an atmospheric response in co two levels. Yeah it's sort of like a bathtub and you know if we turn the faucet down but it still on and the drain is closed. The water level won't stop rising until we turn the knob all the way off and that's essentially what we have to do. When it comes to the climate crisis we need to turn down that knob in reach what we call net zero no net carbon emissions into the atmosphere within a few decades and we need to bring carbon emissions down by roughly factor of to within the next decade if were to stay on that path where we keep warming below truly catastrophic levels more than a degree in half celsius or roughly three degrees

Dinosaur Asteroid Hit Worst Case Place
"Sixty, six, million years ago a giant asteroid crashed into earth killing off three quarters of all species including most of the dinosaurs researchers suspect that the impact caused the extinction by kicking up a cloud of dust and tiny droplets called aerosols that plunged the planet into something like a nuclear winter. And these components in the atmosphere drew of Global Cooling and darkness that would've stopped photosynthesis from occurring ultimately shutting down the food chain. Shelby Lyons a recent PhD graduate from Penn State University. But scientists have also found lots of sit in the geologic layers deposited immediately after the asteroid impact and the set may have been part of the killing mechanism to depending on where it came from. Some of the probably came from wildfires that erupted around the planet following the impact but most of these. Would have lingered in the lower atmosphere for only a few weeks and wouldn't have had much of an effect on global climate. But scientists hypothesized that soot may also have come from the very rocks that the asteroid pulverized when it struck if those rocks contain significant amounts of organic matter such as the remains of marine or. It would have burned up on impact sending such shooting up into the stratosphere in that case. So it would have spread around the globe in a matter of hours and stayed there for years and it would have radically altered earth's climate. So lions on her team set out to. The source of the suit they looked at chemicals known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or ages which are another byproduct of combustion. So you can find peaches and neater veggies that you grill. You can find them from the me exhaustive a car. You can also find them in smoke and debris from the wildfires. TODAY OUT WEST PH is are made up a fused rings of carbon atoms think of chicken wire to determine. The origin of the set the researchers looked at the structure and chemistry of the Ph is buried along with it. Specifically, the researchers looked for groups of atoms that stick off the rings like spikes Ph is generated from burning wood don't have many spikes but ph is from burning fossil carbon like what would have been in the target rocks have more Lien's her team found that most of the Ph is deposited after. The impact were spiky, which suggests that set from the rocks hit by the asteroid played a major role in the mass extinction. There was more dust and more sulfate aerosols than soot, but sit is a stronger locker sunlight than either of those two. So a small amount of set Ken drives, large reductions in sunlight. The findings are in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the results suggest that the devastation. Of this very city asteroid impact maybe due in part to a fluke of geography, the space rock smashed into the Gulf of Mexico where the sediments were rich organic matter. They still are the region produces large amounts of today where it had occurred was likely. One of the reasons that led to a major mass extinction. It was kind of the perfect storm or the perfect asteroid impact I guess you could call it.
Do Americans Trust Scientists
"So much of the public focuses on discovery and they. Scientists going to influence their life scientists. Of course, love the search does that explain maybe just a little bit of the dichotomy I use I think sometimes feel between scientists in the public. View that actually people are quite fascinated by. Approach that scientists take in they're quite curious about it I i. think many of the of the television shows, for example, in books about science or or very very attracted to people and can help bring them in to science and even become scientists themselves. I don't really take a do view of things concerning trust I think trust house to start with the scientists themselves they have to really be. Truthful about their exploration about what they discovered they have to try to be bias free and politically in free free politics and free of self-aggrandizement and just want to pursue the tree. We were President of one of the best engineering schools in the country and have been involved in education but your role at the national science. Foundation. And now your role with the science philanthropy alliance a little little. Bit More of a cheerleader with FBI. Correct way of saying some of this in terms of trying to let people understand the need and support for basic science and our society. Yeah I think you always go back to your roots in at high school. I was cheer. So I think there are definitely a large group of people who liked cheer and that's a very, very important to do, and of course, it demands a different kind of skill set but there's a step beyond cheering. That is just incredibly important to do what I call move the needle to really make things change at sociologically culturally there are many many disparities that abound and they affect science as well as every other field of endeavor and Jake. It's important for institutions like the National Science Foundation's to. All sorts of approaches to to blossom into encourage them scientific discovery come through many many different approaches. And by the way I've Kurd a number of times that Isaac Newton did his greatest most prevalent work during a pandemic. So crisis can also bring about the environment for making a great discovery. You were the chief scientist at NASA. That's pretty cool. What did you take from that role and how did that guy your thinking in the broader scientific community? I really want to be a researcher and that's it. I wanted to explore science deep league. In particular attracted to the cosmos. And Mike Goodness on. There's just some mysteries that it offers and so I was very very focused on that I didn't want anything to take me away from that and so when I was giving the invitation invitation to join NASA as its cheat scientists asked various close friends and colleagues. If it was a good idea, all my department heads around the country who knew me? said, what about idea will take you out of your research because they knew empower engaged wasn't that but then I talked to some of my female colleagues like a colleague who headed the history of science? Department. At Penn State University and my mother who obviously knew me well, if people like that said, well, you can't talk about how important it is that women. and. Underrepresented minorities go into science, and then not take the opportunity to do something about out to have a platform where you can be a role model for that when you can actually affect changes in that.
Malaria Mosquitoes Biting Before Bednet Time
"Than two hundred million. People get malaria each year and about half a million die mostly in Africa. Many of them children and those staggering numbers aren't improvement. Malaria deaths have been cut in half since two in many places are remarkably. Simple tool has led. The fight bednets treated with a mild insecticide at stopped mosquitoes from biting people in their sleep. Both people end. Mosquitoes are pawns in the malaria transmission cycle if an infected person gets by a mosquito. The parasite gets picked up along with the blood meal. That mosquito can then transfer the parasite to the next person bites. Bednets help stop mosquitoes from easy attacks on motionless sleepers but now some mosquitoes seem to be giving up the night shift malaria. Mosquitoes in Africa tend to ship their biting behavior and Mall. All USA from Penn State University's Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics normally they Tend to by people during the night but because of extensive use of bednets. He's mosquitoes started fighting in the evening or the morning. The assumption is that the bednets are weeding out the nighttime biters while not affecting the mosquitoes that prefer feeding at other times so those mosquitoes are thriving son and his team wanted to know whether the observed changing biting time had any impact on malaria transmission. Back in the lab. They presented Anopheles mosquitoes with the opportunity to feed on blood at six PM at midnight and six am when the laboratory was kept at an even eighty degrees Fahrenheit evening and morning biters or no more or less likely to become infectious than the midnight biters but in the real world of the warming Humid Tropics. Nightime is slightly cooler than the daytime and win. The researchers introduced that time variation. The evening biters were a lot more likely to have potent malaria parasites. The results are in the Journal. Nature Ecology and evolution. Not all mosquito. Bite sorry so Mosquitoes biting evening. Can't have highest transmission potential comparing to mosquitoes biting at midnight or in the morning suffer so the difference in the likelihood of mosquitoes becoming infectious has to do with the way that the malaria parasite matures. The parasites have a tougher time developing when Mosquitos too warm but if a mosquito picks up the parasites from blood around dusk those parasites have more hours of cooler nighttime temps to complete their developments next so wants to conduct a similar study of wild mosquitoes and wild malaria parasites in Africa to see if there's lots from his lab mosquitoes hold up either way. Bednets will remain an important tool but understanding the enemies. Behavior is always crucial information in any

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Hits Highest Level in at least 3 Million Years
"In our science fact of the day this just in according to the world meteorological association no you know flaming left wing think tank the a this is the W. ammo the literally the world meteorological association atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide CO two are now at the highest ever in three million years now that is longer than human history human history only goes back a couple hundred thousand years so atmosphere CO two levels right now are higher than when Lucy was around right the the pre human and a higher than when Lucy's ancestors were around getting Lucy was only about a million or so ago all of which means that our children and grandchildren can expect temperatures to continue to rise more extreme weather more sea level rise more destruction to marine life more destruction of land based ecosystems more death of insects and and stuff at the bottom of the food chain which then echoes up so that the birds die and and we're saying this right now you know sixty seventy percent of certain kinds of birds particularly the insect insectivorous birds drawn from our planet we're looking at at at an insect apocalypse right now and and this is just the very beginning we have not yet even hit one point five degrees Celsius increase in temperature over the bass line and the pre industrial base line I mean we're just about there but we haven't quite hit it and the bottom line what what all these climate scientists are saying is is that we have to stop it right there I can't go any farther and yet what is the industry doing right now and and in on the right wing media that is that is supportive of industry while they're making fun of the stuff I mean Michael Mann for example the the the scientist he's been a guest on this program many times as a brilliant easy university of Pennsylvania sciences he's the guy who invented the cop the hockey stick conception of the SCO to going up that Al Gore popularized bed professor of cleans climate science or atmospheric science or whatever it is add to Penn state university one of probably a top five climate scientists in the world Michael Mann me was made fun of by the competitive interest enterprise institute in their blog ran Samberg wrote that well first of all they they attacked Michael Mann they said that his science was nonsense and and that is so Penn state did an investigation because there was all this ball Rollin publicity Penn state did an investigation what they found was that he was totally stand up everything he said was true and the way he said it was fine and though he published it was in compliance with scientific rigorous scientific standards reviews stuff so the compatible devices that is one of these right wing think tanks in quotes it really just a propaganda show operation for industry guy name brand Sandburg wrote that Penn state had quote covered up one two in by Michael Mann and characterize man as quote the Jerry Sandusky of climate science because he had quote molested and tortured data in service of politicized science and then not a blog posted by hosted by the National Review online the national reviews the magazine that William F.

S. producing an amazing amount of milk but the drive to maximize production has come with an undesirable side effect the cows have become more and more genetically similar in fact the vast majority of them are descended from just two bowls NPR's Dan Charles has the story Chad deck out is sitting in his office at Penn state university explaining help Jerry cal's ended up so much alike this is the company select sires we're looking at the website of a company that sells semen from bowls so if we just look at their whole scheme lineup Holstein cows in the black and white ones that make a lot of milk they dominate the dairy business says loading America's finest bowls there on the screen that's right there are just a few companies like this with hundreds of stud bowls thirty farmers go online pick a bowl and the company's ship doses of semen to impregnate their cal's factors one bowl who we figure he has well over a quarter million dollars the company's rank their bowls based on how their daughters perform how much milk they produce this is a bull named frazzled his daughters are predicted to produce two thousand one hundred and fifty eight pounds more milk than daughters of the average ball farmers pay extra for semen from top ranked bulls and the company's keep breeding even better what's meeting their top bowls with the most productive cal's they keep selecting the same families over and over again well a few years ago Chad deck ounce mother scientist at Penn state made the discovery that shocked a lot of people all the Holstein bulls that farmers are using can trace their lineage back to just one of two male ancestors everything goes back to two bowls born in the nineteen fifties and sixties and their names their names were around oak rag apple elevation in Pawnee farm are Linda chief now this doesn't mean that all the bulls in the catalog are genetically identical have lots of different mothers and grandmothers but judge Eckels says it does show the system of large scale artificial insemination farmers picking top ranked bowls has made cal's genetically less diverse trait that you have found in Holstein cows a generation ago have disappeared we've lost genetic variation some of that genetic variation was garbage that we didn't want to begin with some of it was valuable stuff that will be gone to see what might have been lost decal decided to do an X. he located some old seem from other bowls that were alive decades ago with names like university of Minnesota Cuthbert then Zimmerman all star pilot heirloom bulls the US department of agriculture keeps samples of the semen in deep freeze storage in fort Collins Colorado decal used it to impregnate some modern counts they gave birth and now you can see some lost pieces of the hosting family tree come to life in a barn at
How Penn State Is Cutting Greenhouse Emissions In Half — And Saving Money
"Welcome how can a community grow in population while cutting carbon emissions that is the challenge facing the whole planet in the fight against climate change NPR's Dan Charles reports on how Penn state university is doing that from the top of beaver stadium one of the very biggest stadiums in the entire world you can see just part of Penn state's vast and beautiful campus he picked a spectacular data come visit the new rob Cooper is the university's director of engineering and energy we've got six hundred major buildings here over twenty two million square feet parking lots with thousands of cars the couple of gas burning steam plants for heating we have our own water system wells we have our own waste water plant basically it's a city with sixty thousand people and students on campus a lot more when there's football. and like most American cities it runs largely on fossil fuels releasing hundreds of thousands of tons of greenhouse gases every year from those steam plants from power stations far away that supply electricity from the cars the people drive to campus from aircraft that faculty take to conferences. state has added up all those emissions over the past twenty years and it makes kind of an amazing graph twenty years ago the line was going up up up the university was growing more people more buildings burning more coal and gas just like the rest of America and then you get to two thousand four and the line suddenly changes direction it starts falling like it's rolling down a mountain and it's been falling ever since even though the university still growing yeah we've been pretty successful over the last fifteen years I wanted to know how it happened so I went to see professor Chris you'll in the department of biology and my I guess Passionist with ecology in the mid nineteen nineties you'll helped organize a small environmental movement on campus there were students calculating greenhouse emissions from specific buildings looking at technical alternatives when we unveil these different reports we would meet on the steps of old main which is you know and stuff like this big center the university and lots of people showed up you know the press was there they put the university under pressure and as it happened these activists had some allies deep inside the university administration building engineers maintenance guys led by a former navy officer named Ford striker who was in charge of buildings and construction we've seen a lot of evidence that global warming was a real thing and we you know we were concerned about it striker pulled off a classic bureaucratic move he convinced the university president to declare environmental stewardship an official priority the pressure from students probably helped this give them leverage inside the administration he got the university to set up a fund to pay for upgrades that cut greenhouse emissions it took awhile. to get the budget guys and you know in the finance guys to agree but you know we're like they they had to be convinced that it was money that could be paid back yeah heck yeah I mean we had to demonstrate to we're actually saving money and this is what turned around that graph of greenhouse emissions a whole bunch of projects that cut the university's demand for energy and they typically paid for themselves within ten years through lower energy bills rob Cooper who worked for strikers as some what they did was really basic like fine tuning heating and air conditioning systems and you'd be surprised what you find when you try
How Penn State Is Cutting Greenhouse Emissions In Half And Saving Money
"How can a community grow in population while cutting carbon emissions? That is the challenge facing the whole planet in the fight against climate change. NPR's NPR's Dan Charles reports on how Penn State University is doing that from the top of beaver Stadium One of the very biggest stadiums in the entire world. You can see just part of Penn State's vast and beautiful campus. You picked a spectacular day. Come visit. Didn't you rob. Cooper is the university's director of Engineering and energy. We've got six hundred major buildings here over twenty two million square feet parking lots with thousands of cars a couple of gas burning steam plants for for heating. We have our own water system wells. We have our own wastewater plant. Basically it's a city with sixty thousand people when students are on campus a lot more when there's walking and like most American cities it runs largely on fossil fuels releasing hundreds of thousands of tons of greenhouse gases every year from those steam plants from from power stations far away that supply electricity from the cars that people drive to campus from aircraft that faculty take to conferences. Penn state has added up all those emissions over the past twenty years and it makes kind of an amazing Graf twenty years ago the line was going up up up the university was growing more people more buildings burning more coal and gas just like the rest of America and then you get to two thousand four and the lines suddenly changes direction. It starts falling like it's rolling down a mountain and it's been falling ever since even though the university still growing yeah. We've been pretty successful over the last fifteen years. I wanted to know how it happened so I went to see Professor Chris. You'll I'm in the department of Biology and my guest passion is with ecology. In the mid nineteen ninety s you'll help organize a small mall environmental movement on campus. There were students calculating greenhouse emissions from specific buildings looking at technical alternatives. When we unveiled these different reports we would meet eat on the steps of old main. Which is you know? It's like this big center. The university and lots of people showed up you know the press was there. They put the university under pressure and as it happened these activists had some allies deep inside the university administration building engineers maintenance guys led by a former navy officer named Ford striker who was in charge of buildings and construction. We've seen a lot of evidence that global warming was a real thing and we you know we were concerned about it. Striker pulled off a classic bureaucratic move. He convinced the university president to declare environmental stewardship and official priority. The pressure from students probably helped this. This gave him leverage inside the administration. He got the university to set up a fund to pay for upgrades that cut greenhouse emissions. It took a while to get the budget guys in You know in a finance guys to agree but you know we're like they. They had to be convinced that it was money. That could be paid back. Oh Yeah Heck Yeah I mean we had to demonstrate mm straight to we're actually saving money and this is what turned around that graph of greenhouse emissions a whole bunch of projects that cut the university's demand for energy and they typically really paid for themselves within ten years through Lower Energy Bills Rob Cooper who worked for striker says some what they did was really basic like fine tuning heating and air conditioning questioning systems and you'd be surprised what you find when you try to tune up buildings. HVAC system. It's one of the shortest paybacks consistently three to five years on on every building that we go into in the central heating plant. They switched the fuel from coal to natural gas. They installed new energy saving motors and windows this here. The university signed a deal to buy electricity from a new five hundred acre solar farm. Here's Andrew Gut Berlet Penn State's manager of Engineering Services. Every time we looked at added before the economics weren't there we could not get solar power or any renewable energy for less than we were buying it off the grid until now now penn state's greenhouse emissions now are down by a third compared to the peak in two thousand four in a few years with solar power rolling in they should be down almost fifty percent which which seems really hopeful because in principle any city could do this. The country could in essence. We are demonstrating that this can be done to notes of caution though I I ben States not irregular city with thousands of homeowners making their own decisions it owns all the buildings and heating plans. It can make decisions that take ten years to pay off and the second caution is cutting emissions in half is good but it's not enough not if you're really trying to stop global warming so penn state has a much more ambitious. Just go an eighty percent reduction by twenty fifty. Some people on campus are pushing for one hundred percent so I ask shelley mccaig the person at Penn State. WHO's in charge of measuring those emissions. Are you going to make that goal. You're asking me we we need to. I mean do. We have a concrete plan to get there. We we do not and there is the country doesn't either but they are studying lots of possibilities figuring out how much each one would cost what it would accomplish so far. They are on track to reach their goal.

The Story of GE's $22 Billion Writedown
"Electric is scheduled to update its financial outlook on Thursday and the struggling conglomerate might be asked to explain the massive amounts of goodwill that it's recorded then written down. The Wall Street Journal's Michael Rapaport has written a piece about how GE built up then wrote down twenty two billion dollars in goodwill. Michael joins us in our studio. Michael first of all tell us what goodwill is and how GE has employed over the past few years. Goodwill is an asset that a company recognizes when it buys another company it basically reflects the difference between the costs it paid require the of the company and the value of the assets as it acquire like its properties in real estate. And the difference essentially goes on a company's balance sheet is goodwill, but gee, made some fairly unusual decisions. When it bought the French company Alstom MAC in twenty fifteen and recorded thirteen point five billion dollars in goodwill. Even though it had only paid him at ten billion dollars for the company, and that was followed by smother unusual decisions in they. Boosted that amount of goodwill more than seventeen billion. They kept all that good role in their Brooks. Even when they arguably should should have taken a right down right down in value when their business started going sour until he finally took that big twenty two million dollar right down to the fall of twenty eighteen you, quote, a Penn State university associate professor of accounting ever cats as saying that while GE's accounting follows the rules. He couldn't recall another case in which the goodwill accompany recognized from a deal exceeded his costs, and you quote him saying the justification is on the aggressive side. That's right. He's a candidate with when accounting rules, which are very elaborate and very complex in terms of how come to calculates the amount of goodwill. It puts on its books, but as in some other areas to the Wall Street Journal reporter on the past jeez. Accounting was seen as aggressive by. But pushing the boundaries by by number of accounting experts, and these maneuvers that you tell us about is this how GE ended up totaling twenty two billion dollars in goodwill. As does it add up to that? Well, the good-will. Geez. Books comes from from a bunch. Of past acquisitions, and then also was only the biggest most recent of them a lot of goodwill went into their at their power unit. That started having such problems. What happens is that a company has to test its goodwill every year, it has to that the value of the reporting unit that contains a good role is still high enough to justify carrying if you'll be reporting. You're the Tony worth five billion dollars. But his ten billion dollars worth of goodwill. That doesn't make sense that that means that value has to be written down. Gene kept testing that goodwill as as was required until it finally in the fall of two thousand eighteen reach a conclusion that the value of of some of its power reporting units could no longer support Terry men of goodwill. And that's when I took the right down, right? Isn't it questionable because the right down has the effective shielding and assets problems from investors aren't they titled to now. Yes, they are. And what happens is that keeping all that goodwill and jeeze books that contributes towards shareholder equity its book value there that the value actually in the company actually owned by investors having that on there. Kind of mask the fact that when you take out that goodwill which afterwards intangible did it doesn't produce anything for the company. Geez. Book value was actually sharply negative since about mid twenty sixteen having all that goodwill, essentially, what g did import was recognized al-shams acid says goodwill as opposed to some of the more tangible assets, they lowered the value of some of the tangible assets, while increasing the value of the goodwill that benefit g because mo- many types of assets you have to they lose valuable for a period of time.

"Certificate. He he understands sizzler. You gotta training certificates. Like a manager that went through some manager training now for sizzler. That's that's not a business degree. And when he was called out on it. He said, well, and it was changed. They changed it on his resume. I think it was on the website of the website Republican party. I hope somebody that worked with him at sizzler went you've ever got any degree terrible at that too. But he he he claimed that he didn't really realize there was a difference between a certificate and a degree no difference between a business. And what you did. Yeah. So the expo question is, and I described how I lied on. My we'll do it again. I put on my resume. Of course, several times that I had an A a master of fine arts degree from Penn State university. That's really not true. I mean, it's often technically it's true did all the work. It all the work all of the coursework wrote the thesis that I was supposed to write. And then put the thesis in a suitcase and put it under my bed and never send it into the, you know, the MFA committee. So I never received my final. Here's your. It's not like you totally made up, but it's a lot. It was a lie. So I changed it. I said completed coursework for MFA Penn State university. That's what like how I which I can still talk about it. And put it on there. So the expo question is simply. What lies you told on your resume? Did you get away with her? You or maybe you were interviewing people that lied. Clearly. One of my favorite movies, which give the phone number eight seven seven six zero two nine six nine six is the number to call in and tell us about your your lies on resumes. What are my favorite movies? She's having a baby. It's the John Hughes movie. Nobody ever watched because it's not good to good, Kevin bacon. And he's trying to get a job. And he's sitting there in a job interview. And they're going through his rent resume, and they're like so you worked at at nets who a Japanese marketing firm as a cab I worked there, and they're like, well, we own that. So out of all the marketing firms in the world, you could have picked a lie about on your resume. You picked one we own you never lied on a resume, gene. Carey says, no when I never have because he was just so afraid of getting caught I was just convinced that they were going to call and all my reference numbers and check on me. Yeah. No. I I mean, I put I put studied at the university of new never said, I graduated from there is that would ally. No, I know. Well, that means that I could put studied at Salt Lake community college because I took a writing class I took a writing class. So I studied they're so what lies of you told on your resume were or stories that, you know, about people eight seven seven six zero two nine six nine six is the number. I just I I hear the story like the certificate guy. And I just think to myself, you know, I'll bet that there are a lot of people who who lie about their qualifications for thanks. I'm wondering how many employers though, actually go through and check. I'll bet they don't. I'll bet they don't because they're just so busy. They've got a lot of things to do. They just didn't hurry and hire this person and get it taken care of. I mean, I found the movie clip from she's having a baby. But no, I think about it. I mean. You can say this show is worldwide. Yeah. And technically you'd be right now, we have people listening in London and Ireland. But we're not sure we are. But technically we are. But we can lie about it and say that this this morning show is worldwide. Now what now North America's most important radio broadcasts? That's not a lie. That's true. Because who determines it? It's important to to us. That's who it's important. So it reminds this reminds me of two things the two times that I've lied Richie Steadman. Our producer one of them wasn't necessarily ally. When I was in college. With DJ Robbie we did a community access television show. You an rob ferry? Yeah. Rob cherry was called s you you live. And and we said it was the number one rated in local and cedar city. It was the number one local produced television talk show in its timeslot. That's probably true. Yeah. But what it makes it sound? Like is it? It's a great thing. Really? It was the only locally produced. Your resume. So that was one and then the other one also my freshman year of college. When I went to go to audition for how to succeed in business without really trying. Yeah. As I was putting together a theater resume up to that point. I really hadn't done anything as far as high school theater. And so I just I I said, you know, what they're probably not gonna call my high school director. So I just took the shows that we did in high school and picked the roles that I really liked or the people that were friends of mine. This show got I didn't get Cassidy great role in that show. But I did outright lie about what roles I'd had in which Jesus is disappointed. That's why I didn't get any of the roles carry hasn't been honest. And that's it. That's how magic works. I don't li-. I just make less interesting things sound better. For instance. I had to lay people off on my team this appears as reduced headcount by twenty percent improvement. Hey, let's go to the phone Mindy. On line three Kerry. This is another aspect. We could ask about two. It looks to me like she's an employer Mindy. Hi mindy. Hi, you employ people and look at resumes in my reading this correctly. If you're eating back had you employ people and look at the resume. Tell us. What you do you always check. References. You always check to see if they're telling the truth. I do I always check references because in my experience people may look really good on paper. But they're not what they seem on paper in the real world. So you're saying that a lot of people do this. Yeah. I do I even honestly go so far. Look them up on Facebook to their profile pages. Is it can you can you roughly estimate a percentage of people who? Inflator outright lie on their resumes. So far in the past four years that I've been doing this lots of them were craft most of most people. Are not. Because it's easier to stuff easier to check on Mike. You said you Google their name comes up. All right. Thanks mindy. Thank you. Let's see I majored in history with a minor in English on my resume. I list a BA in history slash English. It's a little misleading because it looks like a dual major do you think this is fair? No one's ever asked me about it. Just trying to boost at useless history. Major. It depends on what kind of job you're here. Mike for a job as a history teacher in this case. It doesn't matter. Nobody cares. Somebody says I lied on my mission paper saying I had four years of French. I still went to a Spanish speaking country. Does that mean they don't read those Ritchie or eight.

"Now a rising senior at Penn State university, welcome to the show for having me. So some of the problems that you had our issues that a lot of students face every day. Why do you think things like this are happening? What's going on here? I think part of it is that there are some people that don't understand disability law. Like I got a lot of backlash suggesting that I was trying to get special treatment, not understanding that like it was literally an access issue. I was not able to be in this classroom and be healthy, and a lot of people didn't understand that and thought I was seeking special treatment. There was a lot of criticism that I caught that, oh, just doesn't want the rigor of Stanton. And like they responded with multiple times to me saying for the integrity of the program. And I want that difficulty like I came to the school specifically to be in that IB program to graduate doing the work that the rest of the students did accommodations, don't change that my ability to do AP calculus is not impacted by my ability to handle flashing lights, and that shouldn't be requirement of the class. You know, when I listen to you this Lizzy when I listened to you talk about this obviously took a sort of mental and emotional toll to keep slogging through this fight. I guess. I'm wondering also, you know, since we're doing an economic show here, do you know what this cost you and your family to keep pursuing a legal remedy till you one? Oh, man. The cost to me was utterly extreme. I don't have a ballpark estimate for you, but I can tell you some of the bigger costs. 'cause I grew up first of all, I grew up with. A single mother, so understand that the lawyers that we got, luckily the trial lawyer, Aaron Bates was great enough to be willing to do the case pro Bono very thankful for that. But we had to get other lawyers before that in order to try to get an IEP. So that was out of pocket. My mother had to miss a lot of work to come drive me from school to the hospital. And since that was every other day, it's not like she has the kind of flex time where you can just say, oh, well, every other day this week I'm just going to be taking off the hospital bills. This was literally I was in the emergency room to three days a week. So those things stacked up that was very, very expensive. And I know there is still some aspects of this, even though it started my junior year of high school, and I'm going into my senior year of college. I know there's still some aspects of that that were still trying to pay off because it was so very expensive from. Our perspective you were able to settle with your district, but a lot of people aren't able to litigate this kind of thing at all. Honestly, I wouldn't have graduated high school. There is no other option. It was you fight or you fail out. And I know I didn't have the resources to do that. Have the money to be able to keep bringing in lawyers and talking to the district. And I really do wonder how many other students there are that because they don't have the know-how or the wealth necessary to be able to pursue a gay shin as well. Because this also wasn't like a brief. Let me grab this lawyer. Now everything's moved out. They were retained for at least a year and a half. I really do think about the number of students that are in this exact situation that need a simple accommodation that they are legally entitled to have. I think there's a subset of students with disabilities that aren't served by the educational system. And I think that leads to a lot of them ending up dropping out.

Pressure from president one to bolster growth recapping. US equities, higher across the board with the s&p up. Fourteen of five tenths of one percent I'm Charlie Pellett and that is. A Bloomberg business flash Thank you very much Charlie Pellett art it's, time to bring in, Joe Weisenthal our markets editor for Bloomberg news, also co host of what you miss yes. Every weekday every trading, day three. Thirty PM Wall Street time, only on Bloomberg television and you can follow Joe on Twitter at the stalwart also joining us in studios Dave Wilson Bloomberg stocks editor and you can follow Dave on Twitter at the one Dave all, right Joe Weisenthal post Federal Reserve meeting no change in interest. Rates for the United States but a change of interest rates for. The United Kingdom from the Bank of England is, that relevant to what, you're, looking at today I mean the thing is about the Bank of England is that it really. Only affects the, UK when we talk about central banks Having an influence on global market is usually the via we and the b.. O. j. and the fed, but I still think it's interesting that the. Bank of England hiked not. Because it's gonna, have any ripple effects outside of outside. Of the market there but because for. Whatever reason central bankers seemed to really like hiking rates and the proof. Of, that is that it's hard to imagine that the UK's risk of overheating the economy decelerating they're facing a potentially big shock and they still went ahead with it anyway. But why, did they do it they do it because they were concerned about inflationary, pressures. Because of, the devaluation of the pound maybe it's very compelling there's like a little bit of, inflation but it's already trending down there was some point there was some talk before. That they needed to hike because they didn't hike? Some other, time they were expected to hike and now they need to show some credibility I don't really get that so you know I think central banker. Just like to hike they can? Okay we can pass on that I guess all right I really believe I've every let's bring. The one Dave in. Here David Wilson stocks editor for Bloomberg, news has the hike had. Any impact on the. Stock markets here in the states you wanna talk about what's going on in stocks look at. Across the pie you're looking, at apple and tesla right mean apple becoming. The first US could apple. And tesla again Yesterday was Day NASDAQ is up one and a. Quarter percent the NASDAQ is up more than ninety six, points? Today right and apple is read the forefront. Of that this is the first US company to cross a trillion dollars in. Market value and when you look at the way that the stock has, moved up it doesn't look like it's going to be a one, day wonder which is what. You saw November two thousand seven when petrochina's started trading in Shanghai and got above the trillion dollars four day while apple is the largest stock in, the? NASDAQ right, I mean it accounts for something like eight and a half percent of the total. NASDAQ waiting so when apple moves the NASDAQ's gonna, move well. That's true a bear. In mind you go back and look at how this stock. Has done it is been, up all but two years since two thousand three I mean it's not something. That just sort of happened all at once and you can argue whether, the reaction to the earnings that came out earlier this week me, justifies the latest move in. That said there were definitely some pluses in the numbers and we know that apple has a history of introducing models in September which is the last, month? Of their, fiscal year so that's something to look forward to and when you put it all. Together this history making day not only for apple, but also. For the US market. And you mentioned tesla certainly the story there is very different. This is a company that's, never made money a company that day Oh no it's not. I mean even Amazon, was in that situation once upon a. Time but taste certainly make a whole lot of money these days Years, later I mean you know you had to wait for it right yeah the point is though they've never made a profit they'd been using up cash, and you know this story is they didn't use up as. Much cast last quarter is analysts were looking for only seven hundred and forty million dollars and that. Was enough to send Tesla's shares on a roll so that's sort of where that company is. And musk is starting to sound more like a CEO not like he did three months ago when he was berating analysts on his quarterly conference call so you got. Tesla up fourteen and a half percent at the moment it it, does kind of show, you that, it, doesn't, take much. Sometimes to, get investors excited and when you get sort of a, few points to focus on you see the results Joe is Is apple. The best stock ever and his tesla are we being old fashioned in saying that test is. Gonna make money no I don't think we're being I mean I don't know what the best ever is I think there probably are stocks that have had better returns.

A website called study finds and they just keep looking at all the latest studies coming out and. This one makes total sense to me It, was from. Penn State university, and, instead, of looking. Just at the effects of stress they looked, at how much you were stress can be increased by how you think and how much that can. Impact your memory and behavior throughout the day And here's what they found If you wake up believing your day, is going to be stressful You will. Probably be less productive and have a tougher day at the office And what they mean. By that, let let's say that you have. A big presentation you wake. Up oh man it's going to. Be tough day I got that big presentation we got all the bigwigs there. I've gotta do. This with my PowerPoint that I'm still not, really sure about got fifty people I got to. Put this in front of, I, don't even have the answers all. The questions I know they're gonna ask man. It's just gonna be so stressful what you're going to have a. Harder day what they found is it's even to affect your short term memory Says humans can think about, an, anticipated things before they happen now. It can help us prepare for and even. Prevent certain events this is one of the authors of the study But the study, suggested disability can also be harmful to your daily memory function independent of whether the stress events actually happened or not so. In other words even if you end up doing well that day distress is still, going to be there and it's still, going, to, negatively impact your performance throughout the entire day so even if the things that you didn't think we're going, to happen to Navin let's say you were stressed out.

To, happen you, worried all day and then the shipment comes on time, the the stressful thing didn't even happen it's still impacted your day so what do you do about it well they say if. You wake up optimistic about what's going to happen You don't have those problems Well how do? You, end up getting optimistic well. There's a couple of things if it's, something you can prepare for. Obviously prepare for a better but if it's something like, is gonna come or not and you have. No control over it anyway then you do. Things like deep breathing, exercises you rational emotive, therapy some cognitive behavioral therapy those kind of things to get your.
