Yes, We're Calling It Hispanic Heritage Month

"So it is it's hispanic heritage month. I do have questions because and as we were going to define some of these terms in this corner. I want to talk about because words are important and it's interesting i don't know like is so let starting there. It's hispanic heritage month instead of latin x heritage month. Should it be being rebranded because look. Let's look at the term hispanic latin next like hispanic has it's been defying is pretty much folks from countries that speak spanish. This glued brazilians would and it was kind of a term that was really just designed during the census and spanish lakes being spaniards are actually not hispanic islamic actually so fun fact in the nineteen sixties mexicans and battery kenya's got together and advocated to be on the census imagine not even being on the census so the advocated and they came up with the term hispanic. Oh spongebob lantis. Yes but then. In the nineties being latino became thing and so now the us senate and this is fact. I listened to the director from the pew research center phone. Don't love looking at you know. These are all off the side. I love that were in person right now. Recognize lipstick and put on makeup for head. Because she look you get to be handed me in the night in the nineties. Let the nose became a term and so now the census just use it. Interchangeably So and then there's also this one spot on there and it's like but there's also like those like non white hispanic sucks at really sucks. I know that that's making the research all kinds of ways because it means that. Oh yeah i think. Essentially that article that means. Most latinos are now marking that.

It was a latino community predominantly right right and we know even beyond washington heights. The afro latino population in this country is actually pretty significant. According to the pew research center in twenty sixteen when this came out approximately twenty five percent of all. Us latinos identifies afro latino afro-caribbean or of african descent with roots and latin america.

Making a career change in the middle of a pandemic

"I mean you're curious right about what it's going to be like in the economy yet to come because it's going to be different whether we're ready or not so. We begin today with two stories on that theme. The newspaper for the first of which is our regular thursday update on the state of the american labor market lousy in a word and other seven hundred ninety three thousand americans lost their jobs last week. Yes that is down a tad from the week earlier. But still as i think i say every week now stratospheric lee high and overall twenty something million people in this economy are getting some kind of government benefit so to the bigger point which is of course the theme of the top. Half of the program when it's going to be like when it's done to find new jobs when this is all over a lot of people might have to find new careers. The pew research center. Some new data out on that two thirds of people who are unemployed have considered going into a new occupation or a new field while one third have taken concrete steps to get new training or education as marketplace's mitchell hartman reports getting all the cogs in the back to work machine turning together leading can be easy in normal not pandemic times. Many rodriguez would have about twenty local men and women in the construction pre apprentice program. He runs in west chicago called revolution. Workshop recruiting from underserved communities typically talking about black brown and women. I mean the community desperately needs upskilling and a pathway into family sustaining careers. Most of the graduates go into construction jobs paying eighteen dollars an hour or more but the pandemic happened and seventy five percent of the folks that we have placed were laid off in the spring summer and fall revolution workshop. Didn't start any new cohorts of job trainees. Because there was no construction work for them. Thirty year jeremy smith of reno nevada got laid off from his job as a casino valet in march. He took his relief check and some savings and went back to community college with able to graduate with a bachelor's and why train management about two semesters early so ended up kicking me down the road a little quicker than i planned on. He's looking in his new field. But no luck so far. I'm sure it'll come roaring back. But it's a little dry right now. Meanwhile manny rodriguez at revolution workshop has a new class of construction pre apprentices. Now we are currently recruiting for our second cohort. So you know.

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

How to Money

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

Modern Oracles divination with Palmistry

"Welcome to kiss miss and mysteries. I'm your host kit chrome today as part of my month long investigation into modern oracle destination. I'm putting the art palm reading under the microscope for a closer look. Palm reading originated from ancient asia and is now popular fashionable worldwide as way of person's fate and personality by reading the lines shapes colors of a person's palm and fingers. Let's start with the question. Most often asked which hand you have read. It is believed that the right hand the dominant hand for most people represents now in the future and thus can be changed with time and experience while the left hand represents past and traits the person was born with thus it is more meaningful to take the right hand priority in palm reading though both hands for most people are pretty symmetrical few differences there but in respect to the right and left hand reading. Some say the right hand is for females while the left hand is for males for reading birth traits and then right hand for males and left hand for females for reading present and future. This is because the left hand side is associated with males and fatherhood and the right hand side of the body with females motherhood at least according to chinese traditions. But let's continue our examination palmistry with the current or most common practice. But exactly what does science have to say about palm brady. Americans continue to believe in spiritual phenomenon by the millions that according to a two thousand nine pew research center survey that found that twenty six percent of americans believe in spiritual energy and fifteen percent reports seeing a psychic in the past year but popularity doesn't equal validity. So what is the verdict from the scientific community. Cutting to the chase. They're is scientifically no evidence whatsoever to support the claims about palmistry. So says james. Herbert had psychology department interim provost at drexel university. The core claimed people make. Is that the patterns of the lines. So the palm relate to something about your personality and this can be useful as a way of assessing personality traits more useful in standard ways. Especially if we're lucky at introversion or extroversion alright. Why do people believe in palm reading. It's called the illusory correlation. The human brain is a pattern seeking oregon. We've all to look for patterns. The cost of seen a pattern. That isn't real as smaller than the cost of missing pattern. That is real. So false positives cost less than false negatives on a personal note during the mid nineteen seventies. I took a girlfriend to the renaissance fair held at the time in nevada. California near block forest. I was performing his sword fighting routine with life fencing master during one of my breaks. I escorted by gal to gypsy. Palm reader lay the twenty dollars on the table. Little round table in the middle of attempt. I sat in the corner. My girlfriend extended her right hand. Palm up across the table for the gypsy to read within moments the gypsy roll my girlfriend's fingers up and began to cry. She got up left returning the twenty dollars process three days later. My girlfriend was struck by a car and killed. Did the gypsy see this. Within days of the accident. I contacted the manager and planner of the fair and ask for the name of the palm reading gypsy. They said that she had folded her. Tent was no longer associated with the fair and that they have no information name address or phone number for her. I was told that many of the smaller booths paid one. Initial price didn't fill out any other information and that they often only stayed for a couple of days. It was odd that she had left after only half a day.

States of Innovation: In Depth With Sue Urahn, Pews President and CEO

"Welcome to after the fact for the pew charitable. Trust's dan duke. At a time. When many of us feel is gridlocked. It's important to remember. There are places where real change is being made this season. we're looking at states of innovation examples of state governments. Who have creatively addressed problems with solutions. That are working as always we start with the data point for this episode. That number is sixty seven percent. Sixty seven percent or about two thirds of. Us adults are confident. In local elected officials according to the pew research center and those local officials are central to the innovation. We'll be covering ciaran. Got her start in state government working for the minnesota state legislature where she saw research translated into policies and laws that improved people's lives that led her joining pugh twenty five years ago where she eventually launched pews work with state governments around the we talked to sue about pews focus on evidence based policymaking and how it continues to make a difference. So you're an welcome nice to be here. It seems to have you joining us because your background is in state policy. And you're also the new president and ceo of pew so welcome. Congratulations thank you. I wanted to talk about your background. Because you started in state government before you came to pew. The reason i ended up in the legislature was fairly simple. I was finishing a phd in education. I loved doing research. But i had a fairly significant desire to also have an impact and not the basic research does not have an impact. But i wanted something a little bit more immediate. During the time i was in grad school i had an opportunity to work with the higher education coordinating board in minnesota which set education policy. And i just loved it was the to do research and then to see it. Translated into decisions and policies that had an immediate impact. And i was hooked right from the beginning. I have a deep deep fondness for my home state and the ability to be able to work on policy affected. The state mattered. A lot to me. So the end of the day. I stayed in minnesota and i went to the legislature an unparalleled opportunity to not only see the sausage getting made but to be part of the sausage making process so for me it was also an ability to continue to learn. I had in grad school. Obviously done a lot of research and a lot of presentations and a lot of conversations on that. But i had never been up front and involved in the policy process so during your tenure is the time to pew is really made its evolution into much more of a policy oriented organization as opposed to a grant making organization. You eventually became the director of the pew center on the states. Which gets us to our topic of this season. How did that come about. And what was the whole idea behind. Pugh getting involved in a center focused on the state's well. We had had a couple projects just before that one of the very first one. I did when i moved over to the program. Side was a pretty significant multi your investment to help states invest in preschool for kids and based on the very compelling research that was not widely known at that time that there was a very good economic return on investment. When states were able to do that it was at a time when states were very frustrated about their lack of progress on k. Twelve or form so. i think they view preschool. As a really great place to invest and we viewed it as a place that was ripe for progress at the state level so we moved that program forward and worked in several states. And as we did that it became very clear that the opportunity to engage in different kinds of policy areas at at the state level was something that you should really take a very close look at so launching. The pugh center on the states allowed us to bring together different kinds of policy whether it was education. Or how well states perform or sentencing and corrections and develop buck capacity at pugh that allowed us to work across different issue areas but bring some of the same approaches and thoughtful research to bear. That would help. State policy makers make better decisions.

Covid-19 vaccine: First person receives Pfizer jab in UK

"Well. Biontech and pfizer's landmark coronavirus vaccine has been given to the first person in the uk as part of a mass immunization program. The uk's vaccine roll it is being watched keenly across the rest of the world has other countries begin. Prepare to vaccinate their own populations for the latest on this. Let's talk to our health and science correspondent. Dr chris smith. Chris is also consultant for all the gist at cambridge university. I good afternoon. Chris tyler so i guess So far so good at least we have. We have a soundbite already. We had at the top of the program from this ninety year old woman. Who's been there the first to be to vaccinated chris last week. We saw a little bit of Chest thumping on the part of some politicians the uk saying look. This is great The uk is steaming ahead. How eagerly he would you say not. Just the immediate neighbors across this side of the channel but around the world are going to be watching. What are they going to watching. Forty you think over the coming days and weeks as this rolls out well think it will be a confidence boost to those other countries because no one likes to be i they unless it's a shorty. A dead cert. There's always some risk with any kind of intervention. And this is no different. So having a regulator a regulator that's world renowned the jewelry the medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency. Which is the. Uk's regulator which prior to just having jurisdiction over the uk walls prior to the brexit transition kicking providing that service for the whole of europe. Now europe does that through the ama it. It gives a precedent that other countries can look to and say right. Okay one fairly ferry. Big actor has gone ahead with this nathan. It's good therefore we're happy to Gives us some confidence too. So i think that there's always that aspect to it and it's coming good for the uk in the sense that it saying here we are. We've had a pretty rough time with this. But now some some fantastic triumph of sciences kicked in and we're about to start deploying this across the country and we're gonna we're gonna protect our outpatients. We have this type of approval from a respected Player how much do agencies elsewhere of course within the eu and obviously similar bodies all over the world. how much does it short circuit For them as you said. It establishes a precedent And does that mean that you have you know days or weeks then knocked off the process. Of course he. I'm sitting here in switzerland. Obviously a lot of talk as well about of course is also on the uk as well so does it actually then really prevent And and and and you do you have a moment where you have a real series of time locked off. They'd process well. The europeans are considering this through the jurisdiction of the ems the european medicines agency but the uk is still subject to a you know and in the uk is used one particular rule which is a regulation one seven four which is a specification for in public health crisis. Or emergency you can. Emergency approved something for use in your particular jurisdiction so the nhra has used that to approve this for the uk. Any other country in europe could've done the same thing so it's quite interesting that they've actually decided to white on a broad overarching decision from the a. But it doesn't matter. Who your regulator is they have to meet the same checks and balances. Because at the end of the day they all the gateway between a manufactured product and the public who going to receive it and it's on their neck that the decision rests so then going to say a will. They did it so we'll kind of ignore with this stuff would just sign it off. They are going to apply wherever they are in the world the same rigorous checks that they would apply whether or not someone else regulated something but it does help to give them confidence and he gives them a bit more political impetus when they see that. Another major regulator has taken a product which is also going to be wheeled out in that particular country and said well you know what's good enough is enough the ganda over the past few weeks. Of course astrazeneca moderna in this case. Biontech visor they. They've all been popping up in the headlines. Chris and of course various speeds that of course these approval processes have been working at now. We have three vaccines. We're we're now told her that there might also now be a fourth which is very much in play might be getting closer to approval. How different are all of these in terms of effectiveness and and do they all function largely the same way or do you. Also because obviously many countries that are hedging their purchasing all of them. Am i going to be particularly concerned. In a couple of weeks. If if i choose to get the moderna vaccine versus the astrazeneca versus the by pfizer one. In fact i think the uk has go options in on seven different vaccines and yes. You're right three of them are nearing the finishing nine in the uk but there are many others waiting in the wings around the world. There are ten different types of vaccine the work in ten different types of ways or being generated a more than forty and now in advanced stages of clinical trials. So pretty soon. We're going to have more vaccines than we can shake a stick at up to a point. That's a good thing and it's a good thing because not vaccines are going to be suitable for all people not vaccines are going to be available to all people not vaccines are going to work in all territories and what i mean by. That is if we take the fiso vaccine as an example. This needs to be kept at minus seventy degrees until five days or so before you're going to use all nine hundred and seventy five doses that are in batch and i've just seen a letter go from medical director saying can we make sure that we we use all nine hundred seventy five days in a within the five days so that we don't waste any of this very precious vaccine. Now that's going to be no use whatsoever in some countries where they don't even have a stable. Electricity supply let alone a stable minus eighty degrees freezer. So therefore having lots of options is a powerful thing also We don't know what the long term outcomes with these vaccines against be. We know that they provide pretty high level of protection but short after the vaccination program is finished in other words in in the weeks to a month or so. The person's completed the vaccine course. They're protected with the fis vaccine to the level of about nine hundred ninety five percent. But what happens in five months. What happens in a year. we don't know. And it may well be that other products that come along are able to confer a longer term protection. They might confer a big boost if you give one of those on top of one of the other products. This is a learning process. We're going to be sort of going through this process as time goes on an. It's always good to have more options. Where this sort of things concerned. If if your project yourselves twelve months twenty four months out do you think we also end up in a place because of because of cost because of stability many other things that they're only going to be potentially to vaccines. Is that the way things often go. The other ones might be effective but they might be too expensive as you said they might be too volatile and they fall by the wayside. I so i guess what i'm getting at. Will there sort of a clear winner in all of this in terms of one of the players and obviously the concoction that that ends up within the syringe. Well it's hard to say. I mean you know it's like niels bohr. Who is the forefather of quantum mechanics. Said prediction is very difficult especially when it concerns the future. But it's it's going to be very hard to know because we don't know what the long term outcome with these agencies. They are expensive. These genetic vaccines that pfizer. Madonna offering all pricey the astra zeneca vaccine. Which is still sitting with the regulator here in the uk. At the moment that one will be much cheaper and is also much easier to deploy and store so that there are pros and cons of all these things and it may not come down to simply a case if this one does this and this one does this therefore two horse race. I think we will definitely be a market for a few of these products whether or not. That market's going to be sufficient to sustain all forty plus of the clinical trials that are going on now but but certainly while the world is rushing to get this stuff in sufficient volume. Because that's the issue at the moment the companies just can't push it out the door fast enough the moment it's any partner storm so people are desperate to access whatever vaccine they can as fast as they can and just before we go chris any sense. When you're maybe discussing with your medica- medical call leaks. What the uptake is is going to be. I was talking to a doctor at the university hospital here in zurich the other day his defense was that you know probably just within the hospital owned probably fifty percent of the staff. You know would not be interested in taking the vaccine. Is that sort of a a pretty good gauge. In terms of how the public will look at this. Or if you're not in the medical trenches all day maybe you're going to be keener to take it any any house view from your side. I'm sensing quite a degree of what we dub vaccine hesitancy based on the questions that are coming into various radio programs on participating in basic enquiries from members of the general public and if you look at the day to this come out of the pew research center in america have been running a number of population surveys in the states and originally that was very alarming showed that fifty percent of people would reject a vaccine offered one at that point in time. They recently repeated that survey found that in fact the uptake had risen to fifty from fifty to sixty percents so in other words forty percent. Turn it down. But that's still forty percent. Turn down right now in the uk. We think it's probably going to be Less than that but at the same time still a significant proportion of people are uncertain citing rapid production very rapid approval. As a reason for concern. I do think this is largely going to take care of itself though because what will happen is that because of the way in which these vaccines are being rolled out to high priority high risk groups. I with a trickle down into the younger echo lonzo society over time by the time many of the people who live in countering who is saying. I'm nervous about this. Come to be offered a vaccine. It will have actually been through a very significant proportion of other people and that may well have in still quite a bit confidence into people are safe track record by then so i think it may be one of those short term problems. The actually takes care of itself. That's what i'm hoping anyway. Chris thanks very much for that. That was monocled health and science. Dr chris smith.

"You know, you could make a case that the course of this recovery such as it is, Khun best be traced through the restaurant business. The big chains to be more clear about that. Friendlies filed Chapter 11 over the weekend, joining Pizza Hut and Chuck E. Cheese and the Benko did yen in bankruptcy court. Some change, though, are booming to police says it plans to hire another 10,000 people. So marketplaces Sabrin Benesch or gets is going with who is winning and who is not as we stress eat our way through this pandemic. Right down the street from John Gordon's house. There was a Burger king that recently shut down. Burger King is one of the global brands that's gotten over stored in the United States. And even in the rest of the world. Gordon is an analyst with Pacific Management Consulting Group, He says a lot of chains knew even before the pandemic. They had too many locations. Now they're downsizing. But a lot of chains are also adapting at that same corner where the burger King was. There was a Starbucks. They closed and they just moved into the Burger King. Now they have a brand new store with a drive through, which is going to double their sales easily in a pandemic, the less contact with customers the better and the chains that can pull that off are doing all right. Pizza chains that deliver have mostly done well. Chipotle is expected to grow its drive through stores from 100 to 1000 in the next five years, according to Andrew Charles, restaurant analyst with Cohen. Company Safety is now paramount and obviously conveniences Number two, But there are some chains that are based on contact with customers or dining in Denny's IHOP. I'm not doing so great. Darren Tristano is CEO of Food service results. The full service restaurants will decline at a much faster rate and the chain say, Cristiano says they're going to keep losing market share tomb or grabbing go type places, and that trend will likely continue for years to come. Basically, if there's a restaurant chain whose food you love to eat, but I don't really care where you eat it. It's probably doing well, the places where you actually liked to hang out. Those are the ones that are probably in some trouble in New York. I'm sorry. Been ashore for marketplace. Turns out Americans have some unease with one of the main tools for fighting this virus contact. Tracing is what we're talking about here. New data from the Pew Research Center shows a significant minority of people would be wary of engaging with public health officials of the phone by text or in person, and many would find it somewhat too very difficult to quarantine if asked marketplaces. Jasmine guards explains what's going on there. A few nights ago, I took a walk on the wild side and ate at a restaurant in doors for the first time since the pandemic started. Besides the temperature check, I had to write my name, phone number and address on a list so contact tracers can reach me if there's a covert outbreak. And for a very brief moment, I thought I hope this doesn't somehow lead to marketing emails and calls you are quite mainstream Americans are really concerned and confused on and feeling out of control about their their privacy. That's Lee Rainie from the Pew Research Center. In a new survey, his team explored how Americans feel about contact tracing and being asked to quarantine Democrats said they were more likely to cooperate with contact tracers and Republicans. Those who identify as Hispanic less likely than others, and younger Americans are less likely to engage with contact tracers. And while most Americans would quarantine if asked, 32% would have some difficulty doing so, so essential workers were probably more likely to fall in that category. Black Americans and Hispanic Americans were somewhat more likely than white Americans. As cases surge in the U. S. Experts are increasingly worried about this. Marissa Baker from the University of Washington says public health isn't separate from economic recovery. You need to have workers who are safe workers who are empowered to stay home when they're sick and take care of themselves in their family and work places that are encouraging that But Jacob or a professor of global health and epidemiology at Boston University, says when it comes to contact tracing and quarantining, it's a little late for that. Those air effective. You know what Once once the amount of virus going around in the community, and the number of new cases is relatively small, he says, Prevention needs to be a bigger part of this equation. On Jasmine Garst for Marketplace Wall Street today, traders weren't wary, and nothing will have details when we do the numbers There are as we mentioned last week on this programme 22,654,453 people in this economy. Getting some kind of unemployment assistance from the government, both state and federal governments and capping off what has been a lousy eight months in this economy. For those millions, and for millions more. Actually, some of them are learning they're going to have to pay back some or all of the aid that they got. Marketplaces. Samantha Fields report. Larson Ross got a notice in the mail in late August from the state of Colorado. It said he had to pay back every single dollar he had received an unemployment benefits. He panicked. I don't have $10,000 sitting around. You know, I was a low wage teahouse worker who is unemployed because of Cove ID The teahouse where he worked in Fort Collins, Colorado, was required to close for a while in the spring, So he applied for unemployment benefits and got them and I was using the money from unemployment. For food and rent. So it's spent a couple months later, though, Ross's employer contested his eligibility, saying he quit which he disputes, but his employer eventually won. I'm in this really horrific position where I just I I don't have this kind of money on the state is demanding that I pay it back. Thousands of people around the country have gotten over payment notices like Ross did. People are terrified by these messages, and they're they're coming in swarms. We're hearing about this all the time. And Paxton is with the unemployment law project, which represents the unemployed in Washington state, She says people often get notices because they made a mistake on their application or because their employer or the state did. And during the pandemic, she says. With so many people applying for unemployment, we feel a lot of these decisions about allowing themselves have been made in haste. What's happening now, she says, is that states air, starting to review those decisions and revise some of them? Some are more aggressive than others about clawing money back, says Michelle ever more of the national employment law project in some states, other benefits Khun B. Garnished to pay for that taxes could be garnished. Future wages could be garnish with traditional unemployment insurance ever more, says. States can choose to waive repayment, especially if somebody's so broke that collecting that money from them would cause real financial hardship. But they cannot waive repayment of pandemic.

Witches and Demons and Priests, Oy Vey

"Every buddy. Hi, guys well from unseasonably chilly Salt Lake. CITY UTAH. It's thank God i May theus. podcast I'm Frank Kelvin and I'm Dan Beecher and coming up today Dan. We've got an interview with Andrew Gold. podcasters documentary guy journalist. T. TV percent presenter for the BBC really and all around fascinating cat. Yeah. who is going to tell us uh spooky ghost story. On goes he's GonNa tell us a spooky demon story. So even better than. That works for Halloween, which, of course, it is today. ooh. there. What what what's your bet? We'll anybody come to your door wanting candy. I'M GONNA GUESS NOT Not where I live. Yeah. But like probably very few trick or treaters in general because know. Tis Net. Now, you could get something really spooky like a global pandemic disease. So, there is that. But before we before we we talked to Andrew. We gotta get to some news. Dan's some stuff that happened this week. Big Old world out there. I've got a story about some some witches trying to do something about all that trying about trying to trying to help out in the World Oh. Okay. Trying to normally think. And we're things once went wrong. Okay. Yeah, this last Friday. Thousands of witches across the country. decided to cast a binding spell on Donald Trump. And ensuring his failure in the upcoming election in just a couple of days actually. Oh my gosh. So that sounds time. I hope I. Hope it works. Slow. Sometime you know. What's the thing about? Strange bedfellows. But nonetheless. Yeah I. Apparently. The you know which is have been working against trump even before he was elected the first time I remember there being a story about about them trying this that first election. I not overly confident that they're going to be able to succeed judging by their their past record. I don't know. Well, I mean according to this Article Damn that I have pulled up the number of which is in the country has been on the rise. So if it's a numbers game, they probably have a better chance than ever Yeah researchers looking back. You know to nineteen ninety estimated that there were only eight thousand wiccans in the United States. As of two thousand, fourteen, that's not you know. It's not yesterday but the Pew Pew Research Center. Estimated there were somewhere between one and one point five million wiccans or pagans in country. This is Dan I mean that's good margin of error for them, half a million people but. I'm just GONNA. Say I think that that right there those statistics are proof that the Internet's a bad thing. What the people have. There's so many more people calling themselves, which is at this point shut up. I mean unfortunately. I. Don't WanNa make too much fun of of which is or make it too personal but I know of at least a couple women here in Salt Lake who were out casting spells this weekend. Getting which I don't know if it was I don't I don't actually have a lot of details about whether they were participating this, but I would assume so but I think that that there's something interesting for happening in a country right when you go from eight thousand. Thirty years ago right to possibly a million and a half. Five years ago, right? Wow. Like there's something you don't know what people. Obviously there's a disenchantment with religion in general right and so this is maybe spiritual but not religious type thing right where people are Kinda, they wanNA feel a connection. Right. And I think to be honest. It's kind of fun I mean. It feels like it might be a little feminist in ways right absolutely and and so and I do think that that's part of the draw of of wicca is that it is a feminist or or or at least a woman positive in which in the religious world is vanishingly rare. So I'm I'm all for it on that front. It's just. I would love to see like numbers on Wicca, and how many wiccans Like are genuinely believers in these spells and stuff and how many just think of it as like you say, kind of fun. Yeah. I mean. But if nothing else they're really freaking out the Christians which I think is fantastic.

Who Will Win The Latino Vote

"The thick. This is a podcast about politics race and culture in the elections and all that kind of stuff from. Perspective I might Hosa. Joining us from Park City Utah. Nice does a first time. We've ever had somebody from Park City. UTAH. Is Mi Mike Madrid. He's CO founder of a little organization called. Thank. The Lincoln Project and he's a part, the public relations firm grassroots lab. Hey, Mike. Welcome to the show. So glad to finally be with you guys have been fan for a long time to be with you. Awesome. great-great-great joining us from New York City Lee healed by the she ceo and Co founder of the big data analytics firm seen plus and culture. Intel. Welcome. Really thank you so much. Super excited to be here with your friend Yes okay. So believe it or not It's only one week. Oh. My God one week to the election according to analysis by the more than fifty eight million people have already cast their ballots surpassing all male in early votes cast in the twenty sixteen election. A number of states Georgia and Texas have seen historic early voting turnout. I mean Georgia and Texas, and the both of you Mike in Lilly you've been following the data and the trends when it comes to support for either candidate so we're going to dig into yes the Latino and Latina vote and we've talked about how well they're thirty two million projected eligible Latino voters in this cycle. So that is the second largest voting. Indian tire United States it's likely that this election is going to come down to a handful of key states including Florida surprise and we know right I mean what happens with Florida is going to be determined by Latino and Latina voters correct three point one million eligible voters according to Pew. Research Center there are a number of motivators this time around from the coronavirus pandemic which has really taken a toll on dinos and Latina's to yes the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett and as a disclaimer. So we are recording on Monday afternoon and the final confirmation vote of Barrett is expected to take place on Monday night just saying democracy question Mark Mike, what are you seeing about this Latino vote? And give us your sense like we're all on pins and needles. What's your top line? Is it going to be able to swing these key swing voter states towards Biden Or, will it be towards trump So let's talk about three states specifically and I'll give you kind of what we're looking out where we're trying to move numbers, and maybe some of the irony of the whole situation. There are, of course, a lot of voters now in states like Pennsylvania North Carolina but just mathematically where the communities really going to be determinative, it's going to be flooded out like you mentioned taxes in Arizona. Let me start with Florida because it is such Florida. Florida right Kinda got a look. We all know what that means and what it doesn't mean. Yeah. So trump's spat very early on Miami Dade was one of the counties that he spent most heavily in through the summer. He was up really big columbine the socialist trying to consolidate the Cuban vote multi generational, right? We all know that are older Cuban brothers and sisters have this real anticommunist sentiment anti-castro but the younger you get your that tends to Wayne and future generations and. Most of that was splitting off most Cubans under forty are actually Democrats as a plurality. So the Republican source kind of weight off, but the socialism stuff was working right can't wasn't working overwhelmingly, but it was working enough. Yes. Mike is that because maybe it was been his winnings, there are some of that's what I'm saying. Yeah absolutely. There's this kind of socialist is like the Big Buzzword big it's a big thing with these voter segments but. We gotTA KEEP IT in perspective. It's not like he was overwhelming. It was over performing with where you know trump wasn't twenty-six. They were moving votes early we all know Latinos. Late deciders we're hearing some of this stuff going y'all kit account makes sense. Yeah but look, this is largely corrected already we went in his Lincoln Project I'm not saying we went in alone we went in with a number of Latino organizations we went with North repack Chuck Rochelle Rip Bernie's group. We did you know me me Neither do I ask when it is a coalition and said, Hey, look you guys take the portrait. Daniels. You guys take the Central Americans the few Donald's out of there in Florida we're going to go in after the Cuba to the Venezuelan. We'll go hardcore after after the right you're going after the mother lode, you're like we're taking the colonial. Exactly, right you're doing Lincoln project style. We went with some really hard hitting ads gonNA peel off this vote. So you have seen the numbers come back to Earth a little bit I'm not going to suggest that there isn't a little bit more trump genus than we would like we get to kind of wise that's happening but one of the really Florida things about Florida this year is that trump the republican is over performing with Latinos. Enough to put this in title contention that we would like right and ironically, Biden is picking up more of a Republican sixty five and. Older senior citizen vote, which is a Republican base vote than his historical. So they're each eating into each other's constituencies and the question I think yeah. For flooded is going to be who holds onto each other's constituency the longest to push him over the line.

'Dude, I'm Done': When Politics Tears Families And Friendships Apart

"Now you have likely seen it or felt it yourself. Now A recent survey shows how the nation's bitter political divide is taking a toll on friendships as NPR's Tuvia Smith reports with political polarization hitting a fever pitch. Even decades long relationships are caving under the pressure. It's been happening everywhere on social media, and in really life did straight up there. Dude, I'm done Lose my number that Shimada Davis from L. A. I just hung up on my end, and I proceeded to just block them in every possible way. Joanie Jensen from New York. I hate families, everything but I just don't know and Ricardo de Forest from Florida, there among the many Americans dumping friends over politics. It's one thing to disagree about tax policy, says Davis. But this is deeper. It's about morality and justice. As a black man. He says he simply could not abide his friend of 25 years down playing police brutality. It's like if this is your attitude. I don't respect you. Now I don't because people are really dying. It's also that kind of moral absolute to Jensen, retired professor and sexual assault survivor who cut off a friend of 40 years who was being cavalier about the allegations against Trump's then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He was going off flight. Oh, you drank the Kool Aid Cabin on boy. He didn't do anything. I said if this is his core ethics, I don't want that kind of person in my life Conservatives, Of course. Khun B. Justus, quick to spurn the liberals in their lives who clashed with their core values like life or the biggie for Ricardo de Forest Liberty. They sold our country out. This election is about the soul of what America is. He can be a free country. Andy, a socialist state to forest, a 61 year old steelworker cut off several cousins who he calls hard core Trump haters all they can do it. From the races on man bed on man raises, you know, blowing spittle in and veins popping out of their heads Yolk soy Latino, But I guess I'm some sort of horrible races because I like Trump. Ridiculous. We are seeing more political polarization today than at any point in modern history. Jocelyn Kiley, with the Pew Research Center says about 80% of Americans now have few or no friends across the aisle, and the animosity goes both ways. Democrats are a little bit more likely to say they'd end a friendship. But Republicans, maybe a little bit less likely to say they have friends on the other side, so it may not be all that differential. Everybody is doing this Tania Israel The University of California psychology professor runs workshops on cross the aisle conversations, she says. Both sides have big blind spots when it comes to the morality of their own side, and they all view themselves as eminently fair. And right. When I say all these things, I think I found fairly reasonable and see the other side as irrational. Just something wrong with these people. Whether conservatives like the forest or lefties like Joni Jensen, I said, Oh, my God, he really is brain. Wass. Everyone Tanya, Israel says could use a little more intellectual humility were flattening people out, you know, in terms of our view of them and not really seeing the full complexity of people on the other side. It's exactly what Georgia truck driver Jon Langford says his brother who's gay did to him. He went off on the sand. Essentially, I'm a racist and a homophobe. Just because I'm a trump supporter, knowif stands or butts. Ain't completely cut me out of his life, Langford says he's trying to not do the same and toe hang onto his friends. On the other side. I could assume that anybody that supports Biden is a firm believer that it's okay to murder a baby, but I don't From the other end of the political spectrum. Connecticut business consultant Jeff Maren Steen is also straining to stay friends with some trump supporters. Despite all the invective and insults, you know you live They're all the same or these ad hominem attacks. Maren Steen no longer talks to some of them with others. He just doesn't talk politics. It just feels like the healthiest thing for me to do at the moment. But, you know, I suppose the risk is that I'm just retreating into my own information bubble with people who think just like me. Indeed, experts say more conversation, not less is what's needed to heal the

After The Fact

Interview With Sudip Parikh

"There was a there was a point in my life where I could spend six months a pulling together experiments. To answer a question and this six months would be drudgery, but there was a moment of discovery even if it was a small discovery that really made all of that worthwhile and I really enjoyed it and I, became an expert in one molecule that is inside of the human body and at some point in my career I I really wanted to expand beyond that one molecule. And it's a very important. It's a very molecule year so. I'm happy to talk about it but but. What I found is that I really enjoy this place where the science meets. Meets the rest of the world. because. One of the things that I've seen over time is that science itself is beautiful. But when you can take that beautiful science that inspires all and then have it become part of the world at large, it makes a gigantic difference in many more people's lives and I found that rewarding. And that that notion that scientists. Beautiful. That's a lovely way to say it. And interact with society should seem obvious right I mean on a U. N. I R- talking via the Internet we aww take medicines we're in the middle of an incredible. Science is all around us yet we sort of feel at least the need to point out that this connection that we have to talk about this connection with science and society when it seems obvious why isn't it obvious to some people? Yeah. I think to some degree success has. Has has been our worst enemy right because success means that you don't see some of the sausage getting made that maybe used to see. and. What you really see is. Instead of you know talking about the Internet, you don't see the mess behind it. You see these wonderful sleek user interfaces that anyone can use, and it creates a separation between the science itself and the end user of that science and much the same way that in the nineteen seventies and eighties we to complain that children didn't know where their food came from. That separation that that takes science and puts it in somehow separate from from the rest of things, and it's not how do you personally and the organization fulfilled this notion of trying to help people better understand this connection? Yeah. For AAA yes. That has become building trust and relationships with influencers in our community, and so I can I can walk you through some examples of that. The triple as sponsors fellowships for scientists who are working in labs to work in policy settings. So to work in Congress to work in the executive branch and to bring their scientific thinking and their scientific experience into that policy realm. because. They're trying to build relationships with people that are that are making policy. We also have programs like that for journalists. So we have scientists who work in newsrooms and very importantly at local papers in smaller cities around the country and local TV stations around the around the country because that is where people get their information, you have to build trust with those influencers. We also have a program for seminary. INS. So that might not be the most intuitive thing, but it turns out that if you build trust early with. With seminarians of with people of faith. Even when there's disagreement, there's a level of trust in a relationship that you can build on. Later when it becomes important to build on it, you have to build that trust beforehand not. Not when you need it right and so that's what AAA tries to build those bridges with with the influencers our society. Let's talk though about trust Pew Research Center polling shows that. The public trust and scientists is perhaps not as high as we would have expected it to be what what do you attribute that to I mean you're working to improve it. So why is it where it is? Yeah. Science when we're when we're when we hold a mirror to ourselves the scientists. We have made mistakes, right? You have to look backwards a little bit and say, what are what God us to where we are today and if you are. If you're from the black community you know about to ski and the ethical violations that took place in that human subjects research you know about eugenics. About. Some of the. Some of the areas where science has had challenges with itself as as society has and so we have to we have to be able to hold up that mirror to ourselves. Say It's not that science science as a human endeavour. Fallible. and. So we have to make sure that we are building a human interactions of human trust points. So that people realize that the person they're talking to the scientist, but they're also a member community. And that member of their community has the same wishes and hopes for their children as they do. That they're going about it in a way of looking at research looking at evidence to try to answer questions to guide individual decision-making, and they're willing to share that with me a trusted person in the community, and that has eroded over time as as science has become much more removed from the everyday practical. In the seventeenth century. If you wanted to be a scientist, you could be a scientist. You a everything that was known could be found in encyclopedia type. Type of book. It's not possible today, and so when now sciences removed because the necessity of speaking with precision creates jargon in jargon takes a completely out of the realm of of the late public, and so it becomes a special skill set to be able to break out of the audience of scientists and break into the audience of the interested. Of the allies of scientists of the general public, and that becomes a skill set all its own

"I'm Marco, where manure with the world. We're co production of GBH. NPR ex For the past 3.5 years, the United States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries. That's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center. But a new study that just publish shows that our reputation has taken an even deeper nosedive Just over the past year. Jacob poster is that pew in Washington. Jacob. You does a lot of service and this is not the first one about America's image. What made this survey you, Nick? Well, we've actually been doing surveys for 20 years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the U. S. During that time period and in the current survey in 2020, we're finding some of the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability, including in Japan, the U. K Canada You know, no more than foreign 10 have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think us image plummets internationally, as most say country has handled Corona virus badly. So how did your survey asked respondents about the U. S and the Corona virus like what was one of the questions? Well, we ask people on whether various countries including their own, We're doing a good job of dealing with the Corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than 20% in any of the 13 countries that we surveyed said that the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the Corona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the countries we surveyed, people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. There are places where the US images seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the U. S was responding well to the Corona virus in terms of response to the Corona virus. No country was over 20%. But when it comes to us favorability, there are countries where a majority still have a favorable view of the U. S. But that number has shrank dramatically in the last year, South Korea's one country where 59% have a favorable view of the U. S. But even there, that's down almost 20 points from 2019 when 77% had a favorable view of the U. S. And the survey also ask people to rank their own government's response to the pandemic. Where did people give their government high marks? Well, mostly in Western Europe, is where you see the most positive views of the Corona virus response. So Denmark, Germany, Sweden all have relatively positive views of their response to the Corona virus outbreak and also in South Korea and Australia. A little less so in France and Japan. But still majorities there say that their own country has done a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and in the U. S and the UK less than half 47% and 46% respectively, said that their own country had handled the Corona virus outbreak well, I'm curious. How do Americans respond to these surveys that ask how other countries view the US? I mean, are these surveys learning moments? I mean, that would be an interesting question. Ask, you know what people think about her surveys in a public opinion survey, But generally you know that this is Ah, question that we've asked every year for the last 20 years. The first times we asked, this question was actually post 9 11. And we saw fairly robust ratings for the U. S. But then the Iraq war came along and views of the US fell pretty rapidly at that point and on Ly recovered, actually when Barack Obama was elected president in 2009, so we've seen a long road in terms of overall US favorability and you know, people are generally interested in this question, and it tells us a lot about the image of the US internationally and how that changes Over time and how it's affected by who's the US president. Finally, there was a question in the survey about world leaders who is most respected and why so among the countries that we surveyed, which I will admit is generally European. Heavy. German Chancellor Angela Merkel gets the highest ratings in our survey..

"According to a Pew Research Center study published in May, Jonesy Is the country's most pro government, anti trump generation and 24 million of them are eligible to vote in November. But Jen Zy has not always found the Democratic Party to be a reliable ally, Gabi Birnbaum. Writer at the Hill says. While Jen Zy voters are often progressive youth activists and organizers are not yet sold on a party that many feel does not listen to them and is unsure of how to communicate with them, Gabby explained. I think essentially, Genji voters feel for the most part taken for granted by the Democratic Party. I think Among the youth activities, organizers and researchers that I talked to, they said. Democratic Party sort of only reaches out to them right before an election isn't really interested what they have to say, and it's just kind of counting on their votes without having earned them. It's a lot of them feel that they're less likely have been identified. A Democrat either result or even if they'll support Joe Biden now like you to form that kind of long term part identification that you know that Democrats should be gaining from Genji because they are so progressive in their positions should align with Democratic Party. Alright, so name the list of things kind of that that they've been through and that they also feel they're not being heard on. Yeah, absolutely So gently, I think has grown up. You know, it's to find it pretty much anybody younger than 20 for, um, and they've been through a really specific on unique economic and political context. You know, they're in there now. Second major recession. It's 20 years, pretty much of in action on climate change mass shootings they've seen the cost of college rise. Student loan debt balloon. Andi basically gently, you know, they've seen what millennials have gone through essentially the same thing and they're still dealing with injustice. They're still dealing with climate change. They're still dealing with student loan debt and gently is really just terrified that that's going to happen to them, and they want to work. Really hard to make sure the Democratic Party hears them and understand that they don't want to end up like millennials. So how will you know they they feel unheard. How do they plan to get heard? I guess. Yeah. So, Jen, something interesting. I found out from talking to Jason Darby, Who's a researcher with the Center for Generational kinetics. Basically Genji because there's such a digital natives they're used to being heard in their daily interaction. You know, If they have a professor, they could go online. They could rate them. It can go post reviews for restaurants on brand. They're used to sort of being solicited by brands engaging an active dialogue with them. But when it comes to political parties, they don't feel that they're being heard in that same sense, You know, Jen Zy overwhelmingly supports progressive policies. There's a lot of support for the green new deal for Medicare for all for canceling student loan debt, and they don't see the Democratic Party. Bring us into their policy platform, and they don't like the Democratic Party of engaging them. Meeting them where they are online in the digital space is they're not doing it and what they feel is an authentic way and so wanted to be heard. They're taking to a lot of non electoral roots. You know, they're protesting. In the streets that leading these online activism campaigns with hashtag and the sort of going about it in a non electoral, non official party way. I'm just curious based on what you said if they feel that they're not being heard. Why would they then think that government is the answer if they want the government action on these items? Yeah, it's a bit of an interesting dichotomy there something like nearly 80%. I don't have a statistic right in front of me, but it's I think something in the seventy's percent of Genji believes in an activist government. They believe that the government should be a force for good in people's lives and should be doing those things. And I think fundamentally, they think the Democratic Party could do that, because there are Democrats or independents like Bernie Sanders Caucus of the Democrats who they support they Appointed Bernie Sanders overwhelmingly in the presidential primary. They like Alexandra Cozzi, of course, has a lot so there are Democrats that they like and that they feel can use government for that positive change. They want government action tto help them with things like Climate change things like student loan debt, but they're just not seeing it right now from Democrats were speaking with Gabby Bierenbaum, writer at the hill. Her pieces called Democrats Struggle. Tow harness enthusiasm of Gen Z voters Generally, folks who are under the age of 24 s. So is there a chance then? That they sit things out. Come November. 3rd 2020. Yeah, You know, it's an interesting question Turnout for young voters Historically in any generation fairly low, You know, it's a fairly complicated process to vote, especially now, with the vote by mail with absentee voting with everything going on around that It's going to be, you know, you have to really convince young voters to vote. And so turnout in 2018 we saw was pretty much a record high in decades for voters under 30. They voted it around 28% in a midterm election, which is still pretty low. But that expects to be a lot higher for presidential year. A lot of experts in the field are predicting record high. I think a lot of Genji feel that the stakes are just too high to sit it out. But, you know, thinking long term if they don't see Joe Biden, Kamala Harris sort of moving to the left on the issues they care about. Then turnout for future elections could be depressed. One thing that Jennifer really, really cares about his authenticity, So they really like a candidate who's unscripted, who sort of speaks off the cost, who they feel is directly speaking to them and engaging them and something I found out that you don't need to be a younger candidate like me, too. To attract their attention. Someone like Ed Markey, who's in the seventies who's running for Senate reelection in Massachusetts. You know, maybe add, marking himself might not know Internet playing or how to talk to Janhvi. But he clearly has hired people who dio his campaign sort of mixed names, engages with them on Twitter partners with them to do things like phone banking. I think I found. If you have a candidate whose progressive and authentic and they actually hire young people, then gents, we're going to sort of run with that. And they can almost run a proxy campaign for you on line being in those digital spaces that they're that they're peers are thanks Gabby Gabby Bierenbaum, writer at the Hill 22 minutes now after the.

"Morning news every year you know pew research center publishes all kinds of reports and blog bows and essays and other studies about demographics political changes you know growing growing ethnic groups versus at the groups that are there to getting smaller we know the Hispanic population continues to grow in fact Hispanics are projected to be the largest racial or ethnic minority groups in the twenty twenty U. S. selector overtaking African Americans for the first time the question is always spurs your conservative how do you make sure that you're getting that message across to Hispanic voters in that you're trying to recruit as many of them to become Republicans as you can there's a there's the that automatic thought that well other could end up voting Democrat not necessarily political strategist and good server look Misia's joins us you're spending quite look I am I am looking out what brought you over to the conservative because what was it about were you raised a conservative or not I was in my day and my dad was as well the reality is that he was raised by a dad who believed in personal responsibility and that at its core is a principle that will quickly lead you to a conservative fought and the Republican Party and so I think that's actually one of the things that has continually provided hope to Republicans here in Texas which is the fact that Hispanics are not a monolithic group that simply vote in lockstep with the Democrat party you know people have actually been really excited recently that some polling who showed that Donald Trump might get fifteen percent of the African American or are the black vote in the United States and and that is literally a promising number for Republicans because of how poorly we've done with that demographic in the past and and Hispanics are not that way right we actually can be in Texas Republicans getting over forty percent of Hispanics times and so those are the numbers that were targeting another interesting point in that research to Jimmy was the fact that Mexicans are no longer the majority of illegal immigrants in the United States we actually have more illegal immigrants from other nations and from Mexico and so I think that is also a notable trend to recognize while the same time recognizing that Hispanics are the largest good luck to you you do have a slight shift within you know what the illegal immigration population is and also there's an assumption that just because somebody this panic but they actually care to you know support illegal immigration which I also think it's a misnomer okay and I'm naive assumption what do you think that that is the biggest issue that separates conservative from liberal Hispanic voters is the immigration policy all right I I don't think so I think the biggest thing that separates conservatives and liberals we've got both of those factions from I think the the biggest issue are the social issues when it comes to just the core of what they believe in fact if you look at Hispanic voters in Texas a majority of them actually do support border security and they oppose taxpayer subsidies to illegal immigrants in most calling that I've looked at so I really do I think that people think that that's the biggest issue but I do think that there a lot of other systemic issues that they care about education social issues and things like that that Republicans just after figure out how the message to them and I think to the done it in this is true of any liberal versus any conservative Matt is the role of government in solving your issues yes yes and I think it has been for a little less likely to assume the governments there to fix all of their problems you know I really I really do think there's a a better understanding of personal responsibility within the community and I think it's one reason why Republicans have a hope of continuing to earn more of their support as time goes on okay will defy the good fight good to talk to you Sir take care happy new year political strategists look Missy is joining us here on newsradio seven forty K.

"If you only watch MSNBC or FOX for that matter, just what Fox News, it was some people know, like FOX is not as conservative. What all he knows when I'd been on FOX over the years. I think she sees the same thing when he's on there often. There's normally if I'm on the right on a particular issue, and not always, sometimes Mr. pregnant pragmatism, I can't say pragmatism mileage together at any rate. There's always somebody else on the other side mop, the floor with them, of course. But there's always the other side. So this is an axios poll today as is that of the Pew Research Center is reported axios dot com. Americans view, fake news. As a bigger problem than terrorism, this is when we have a problem. Okay. If that if you think it's because terrorism takes many forms. I think you make the case if somebody murders you tries to murder you. That's, that's kind of an act of terror also hate crime, but I. So here's how they lay this out. Americans view made up news and information, which we don't do on this station as a bigger problem than other critical issues including terrorism immigration climate change with them and racism, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center survey finds that Americans feel more worried today about fake notes because it's undermining their trusted key institutions. Like government immediately. First of all, you don't need fake news. Help to have a question about some elements within the government. I mean pick a branch. FBI. I mean, great people in the FBI, but obviously, a lot of concerns who knows what and find out when the inspector general report comes up undermining trusted, Sacramento, urinated, help from fake news, or Russian meddling to just look at what's their start with the DMV. The only issue is that rank higher than made up news and information as in the way they listed, quote very big problems in the country today, are drug addiction, the affordability of healthcare, the US, political system, and the income gap. So see that starting to resonate to this is why there's too many people have more money than you get it. The Bernie would say that, just little digital your fair share. It says the million Bernie Sanders sixty eight percent of Americans majority believe according to the survey believe made up news and information is a big impact on their trust in government. Again that doesn't. I just, just look at the news, government does, and you can figure out what that means in your own. Right. I believe, more on that coming up AM, sixty talk and breaking news, Stanley steamer does the work for you. That's one of the best things about Stanley steamer unit.

"Good afternoon. All of you Easter worshippers and non Easter worshippers listening in. I'm Michael Knowles sitting in for the Ben Shapiro show. You see the person who usually hosts this show is a Passover worshiper. So because he's not going to be here today. He had to call an Easter worshiper because Easter was yesterday, we finished worshiping. Now, we can go and host radio shows. This is the new word the new phrase that has entered the English language, thanks to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton yesterday Easter worshippers wasn't just them Hulu on Castro who's running for president. Now. He's one of the seven hundred thousand democrat candidates for president. He also used the phrase Easter worshiper there coining new terms. What is an Easter worshiper? I don't know about you. I'm catholic. I have many Christian friends. We all celebrate on Easter. We don't worship Easter we worship Christ. That's what. Makes you a Christian. But for some reason, these democrat elites could not refer to Christians could not refer to Catholics specifically in this awful, Sri Lanka terrorist attack. This massacre carried out by his Llamas group. So they referred to Easter worshippers. Barack Obama tweeted out the attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity on a day devoted to love redemption. And renewal we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka, even beyond this silly phrase that they've invented even listen to those generic universal vague sounding terms a day devoted to love redemption. And renewal of course, Easter is a day about love and redemption renewal. There are a lot of other days about love and redemption. And renewal every time I take a shower it's about renewal other days for redemption other days for love it's so generic why can't? He say Christian. Why can't he se? What the specific day is about which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hillary Clinton same thing on this. Holy weekend. For many faiths. We must stand United against hatred violence. I'm praying for everyone affected by today's horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka. So Hillary couldn't even identify that. It was Easter Sunday. She couldn't even say she said, no it's a holy weekend. For many faiths, we stand United against hatred and violence. We don't stand United against Islamic terrorists. Who perpetrated this attack and killed two hundred ninety people on Easter Sunday in churches and hotels nearby. No, we have to say many fades United hatred violence and Hulan Castro. Same thing on a day of redemption. And hope the evil of these attacks on Easter worshipers and tourists and Sri Lanka is deeply saddening. My prayers are with the dead and injured and their families. May we find grace? We're not going to find grace until we call out the attacks specifically for what? They are. We're not going to be able to find grace. If we bury our heads in the sand and try to pretend that this is something other than it is this was an Islamic terrorist attack on Christians on the holiest day of the Christian calendar. Probably these people don't know that probably these political elites in the media who are reporting on them. Don't know that Easter is the holiest day of the Christian calendar. Probably they don't know that there are countless attacks on churches all over the world. Probably they don't know that Turkey's have become the number one target for attacks an average of one hundred and five per month more than three attacks per day going around in the world almost all of which were ignored by the mainstream media. Why can't the left use the phrase? Why can't they say Christianity Christians, the reason they can't do it is because Christians can't be victims? Obviously in reality. Christians can be victims in reality Christians, or the most persecuted religious group in the world, according to the Pew Research Center, but in leftist ideology, Christians cannot be victims. Why not because they've constructed? This called intersection -ality, you've probably heard about it. If you've ever walked by a college campus, these days, you've heard the phrase intersection -ality, and it's basically a pyramid of various victim and depression groups, and at the very top of that group or the straight white men, specifically men who think that they are men not men who don't think that they are men were think that there's something other than men and Christians, those are the oppressors. And so according to this Christians can't be victims. It has to be more generic than it has to be vaguer than that. It can't be even specifically day about the resurrection of Christ. It has to be a holy weekend. For a lot of people. Oil, and then they're all against hatred and the role against violence and their Easter worshipers, they cannot admit that Christians can be victims, but they are this attack and Sri Lanka is explicitly an attack on Christians and on Christianity, it hits three churches and hotels on the holiest day of the year and Christians are an obviously persecuted minority in Sri Lanka Christians, make up just seven point four percent of the population of Sri Lanka. Not just in Sri Lanka all over the world. Obviously, we saw Notre Dame burned to the ground. We don't know the cause yet of that fire. We do know the causes of other fires that have been going on churches threat France for weeks. Now, we do know the causes of other desecrations of churches threat, France that have been going on for weeks and months at this point excrement-smeared on the walls the holy Eucharist. Desecrated crosses crucifixes thrown to the ground. This has been happening all the time threat, France, not just in France days later. There was an American professor who was arrested trying to burn down Saint Patrick's cathedral. Of course, it was an American professor. Of course, it was these people who are educating your children an American professor walks into Saint Patrick's cathedral. He's got two canisters full of gasoline. And he's got the ability to light the gasoline. They finally arrested me says I was going to my car, I guess he parked his car and Saint Patrick's cathedral. It's a bad place to park. It's very difficult to find parking in New York. No matter how desperate you do not park your car in Saint Patrick's cathedral. Obviously he was trying to burn down one of the most important cathedrals in the world, certainly the most important one in the United States. He had booked very expensive ticket to Rome set to depart later that day. I guess he was going to burn down Saint Patrick's cathedral. Then he was gonna fly over to burn down. The Vatican yesterday Easter Sunday a woman jumped on stage at an Easter service holding baby and a handgun and screaming about the rapture and screaming about blowing up the church. Thankfully. She was tackled. I think the baby is okay. And nobody was injured. In that church. All of this to say. Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world. The Pew Research Center came out with this study just last year. It was a study that looked at trends up until twenty sixteen and it showed that in two thousand sixteen Christians were harassed in one hundred forty four countries that was up from one hundred twenty eighth year before and that edges out even Muslims and other groups also harassed and countries, not as much as Christians. And yet you would never hear this. You would never hear this from the media you in part because of leftist ideology because obviously the mainstream media the the American Academy or all left wing virtually all left wing. And so if something cuts against their ideology, they're just not going to talk about it, the New York Times publishes, all the news fits the narrative. Not all the news that's fit to print publish very little of the news. That's fifty print, but it does publish all the news that fits their narrative. And it's not just that the is so bad. It causes them to lie. It's that the idiocy causes their ignorance. The left-wing media or totally ignorant about Christianity, specifically and religion broadly. There was a headline that came out from the Associated Press. The headline read tourist mecca Notre Dom also revered as a place of worship. This was news worth to the editors of the Associated Press. They were so shocked to find out that the cathedral of Notre Dom believe it or not. You'll be shocked is a place of worship. Wait till they find out that Neka is also a place of worship tourist mecca. Notre dumb. What if they found out? Tourist mecca mecca is also a place of worship the center of the Islamic religion knee Associated Press is not alone in this last week. The New York Times reported that the hero priest father, John Mark -fornia ran inside Notre Dame to save the body of Christ the body of Christ to Christians, we know is the Eucharist it's the host the communion. Wafer the New York Times thought he was hauling out a giant statue of Jesus dragging some giant statue on his back or something. List goes on and on. They thought that the church of the holy sepulcher. Is where Jesus is buried. I guess they don't know what a Christian is. They don't know these basic aspects of religion. And it absolutely destroys their credibility destroys their ability even to report on world events, like the attack and Sri Lanka. These are allegedly educated. Reporters, maybe we need to look at the education system to by the way, speaking of the education system, I am going to be in Cal State LA tomorrow to give a speech on immigration, the speech is titled this land is my land. We're going to be talking there. Cal State LA already. The president of the university is sending all these warnings about the perils of free speech. No surprise last time. I was giving a speech. I was at the university of Missouri. Kansas City, not only was I screamed down silenced shouted down from the first moments of my speech. But then some left-wing lunatic busts in the back door and sprays me with some weird unknown chemical substance, thankfully, he was dragged out the next day the chancellor of that university. Molly Agra wall, actually, condemned me, he smeared me as a bit. And he applauded all of the students who were screaming and trying to shut me up from the very beginning. That's the state of the American University right now, you can check out my speech. Cal State LA. It's going to be at three PM Pacific if you're nearby that's six PM eastern. Otherwise, it's going to be streamed live on the daily wires, Facebook and YouTube pages, check it out. It should be a good time. It's a very important issue. And I just hope we don't get shut down. I hope that some people have some backbone in the American Academy. Maybe I'm hoping for too much, although I will say after that event at the university of Missouri Kansas City after that chancellor, Molly Agra, absolutely a disgrace. To higher education after he smeared invited speaker. Because I was physically assaulted after all of that. There were a few state legislators who came out and condemned the university chancellor or couple great, Missouri. State. Legislators Senator David Sader said as far as I'm concerned that chancellor can go and Representative Robert Ross asked the president of the university of Missouri system at what point would a staff member not be worth tradeoff in reduced amount to your budget. This is the way that we have to handle this. We see it throughout our society as the education system gets hollowed out by leftism as the education system is decayed and desiccated you see the effects, and our mainstream media, you see the effects in our politics, you see the effects in everyday people as we go along if the universities or not fulfilling their purpose of educating people. Why do we have them? Why are we funding them you? And I are complicit in it you, and I and institution. Run by the state, like university of Missouri. Kansas City you and I are paying their salaries you, and I are funding this refunding to indoctrinate people in left wing ideology were not giving them any sort of education that has bad effects on our society that has long standing effects on our society. It's not just to say. Okay. Who cares? No big deal. You're saddling kids with a lot of debt. You're wasting a lot of time. You're filling their heads with things that are simply not true. They always say, it's not what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't. So you see it play out. All of you Easter worshipers, you see it all of you non Easter worshipers as well. We've got a lot more coming up. We have got to talk about Coachella this weekend. Coachella is one of the great events because Coachella is is showing us the difference between our pop culture and the truth. Check it out.

"Forty percent off good afternoon. All of you Easter worshippers and non Easter worshippers listening in. I'm Michael Knowles sitting in for the Ben Shapiro show. You see the person who usually hosts this show is a Passover worshiper. So because he's not going to be here today. He had to call an eastern worshiper because Easter was yesterday, we finished worshiping. Now. We can go and host radio shows. This is the new word the new phrase that has entered the English language, thanks to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton yesterday Easter worshippers wasn't just them only on Castro who's running for president. Now. He's one of the seven hundred thousand democrat candidates for president. He also used the phrase Easter worshiper there coining new terms. What is an Easter worshiper? I don't know about you. I'm catholic. I have many Christian friends. We all celebrate on Easter. We don't worship Easter we worship Christ. That's what makes you a Christian. But for some reason, these democrat elites could not refer to Christians could not refer to Catholics specifically in this awful, Sri Lanka terrorist attack. This massacre carried out by his Llamas group. So they were for it to Easter worshippers. Barack Obama tweeted out the attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity on a day devote. Voted to love redemption. And renewal we pray for the victims and stand with the people of Sri Lanka, even beyond this silly phrase that they've invented even listen to those generic universal vague sounding terms a day devoted to love redemption. And renewal of course, Easter is a day about love and redemption renewal. There are a lot of other days about love and redemption. And renewal every time I take a shower it's about renewal other days for redemption other days for love it's so generic why can't he se Christian? Why can't he se? What the specific day is about which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hillary Clinton same thing on this. Holy weekend. For many faiths. We must stand United against hatred and violence. I'm praying for everyone affected by today's horrific attacks on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka. So Hillary couldn't even identify. But it was Easter Sunday. She couldn't even say she said, no it's a holy weekend. For many faiths, we stand United against hatred and violence. We don't stand United against Islamic terrorists. Who perpetrated this attack and killed two hundred ninety people on Easter Sunday in churches and hotels nearby. No, we have to say many faiths, United hatred violence and Julia on Castro. Same thing on a day of redemption. And hope the evil of these attacks on Houston, worshipers and tourists and Sri Lanka is deeply saddening. My prayers are with the dead and injured and their families. May we find grace? We're not going to find grace until we call out the attacks specifically for what? What they are. We're not going to be able to find grace. If we bury our heads in the sand and try to pretend that this is something other than it is this was an Islamic terrorist attack on Christians on the holiest day of the Christian calendar. Probably these people don't know that probably these political elites in the media who are reporting on them. Don't know that Easter is the holiest day of the Christian calendar. Probably they don't know that there are countless attacks on churches all over the world. Probably they don't know that churches have become the number one target for attacks an average of one hundred and five per month more than three attacks per day going around in the world almost all of which were ignored by the mainstream media. Why can't the left use the phrase? Why can't they say Christianity Christians, the reason they can't do it is because Christians can't be victims? Obviously in reality. Christians can be victims in reality Christians, or the most persecuted religious group in the world, according to the Pew Research Center, but in leftist ideology, Christians cannot be victims. Why not because they've constructed? This called intersection -ality, you've probably heard about it. If you've ever walked by a college campus, these days, you've heard the phrase intersection -ality, and it's basically a pyramid of various victim, depression groups, and at the very top of that group or the straight white men, specifically men who think that they are men not men who don't think that they are men were think that there's something other than men and Christians, those are the oppressors. And so according to this ideology, Christians can't be victims. It has to be more generic than it has to be vaguer than that. It can't be even specifically day about the resurrection of Christ. It has to be a holy weekend. For a lot of people. Oil, and then they're all against hatred, and they're all against violence and their Easter worshipers, they cannot admit that Christians can be victims. But they are this attack in Sri Lanka is explicitly an attack on Christians and on Christianity it hits three churches and hotels on the holiest day of the year and Christians are an obviously persecuted minority in Sri Lanka Christians, make up just seven point four percent of the population of Sri Lanka. Not just in Sri Lanka all over the world. Obviously, we saw Notre Dame burned to the ground. We don't know the cause yet of that fire. We do know the causes of other fires that have been going on churches threat France for weeks. Now, we do know the causes of other desecrations of churches threat, France that have been going on for weeks and months at this point excrement-smeared on the walls the holy Eucharist. Desecrated crosses crucifixes thrown to the ground. This has been happening all the time threat, France, not just in France days later. There was an American professor who was arrested trying to burn down Saint Patrick's cathedral. Of course, it was an American professor. Of course, it was the people who are educating children an American professor walks into Saint Patrick's cathedral. He's got two canisters full of gasoline. And he's got the ability to light the gasoline. They finally arrested me says I was going to my car, I guess he parked his car in Saint Patrick's cathedral. It's a bad place to park. It's very difficult to find parking in New York. No matter how desperate you get do not park your car in Saint Patrick's cathedral. Obviously he was trying to burn down one of the most important cathedrals in the world, certainly the most important one in the United States. He had booked a very expensive ticket to Rome set to depart later that day. I guess he was going to burn down Saint Patrick's cathedral, then he was going to fly over try to burn down. The Vatican yesterday Easter Sunday a woman jumped on stage at an Easter service holding a baby and a handgun and screaming about the rapture and screaming about blowing up the church. Thankfully. She was tackled. I think the baby is okay. And nobody was injured. In that church. All of this to say. Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world. The Pew Research Center came out with this study just last year. It was a study that looked at trends up until two thousand sixteen and it showed that in two thousand sixteen Christians were harassed in one hundred forty four countries that was up from one hundred twenty eighth year before and that edges out even Muslims and other groups also harassed in countries, not as much as Christians. And yet you would never hear this. You would never hear this from the media you in part because of leftist ideology because obviously the mainstream media the the American Academy or all left wing virtually all left wing. And so if something cuts against their ideology, they're just not going to talk about it, the New York Times publishes, all the news. The fits the narrative, not all the news that's fit to print it publishes. Very little of the news. That's vistaprint. But it does publish all the news that fits their narrative. And it's not just that the is so bad causes them to lie. It's that the idiot. Causes their ignorance. The the left-wing media are totally ignorant about Christianity. Specifically and religion broadly. There is a headline that came out from the Associated Press. The headline read tourist mecca Notre Dom also revered as a place of worship. This was newsworthy to the editors of the Associated Press. They were so shocked to find out that the cathedral of Notre Dom believe it or not. You'll be shocked is a place of worship. Wait till they find out that mecca is also a place of worship tourist mecca. Notre dumb. What if they found out? Tourist mecca mecca is also a place of worship. So the center of the Islamic religion. The Associated Press is not alone in this last week. The New York Times reported that the hero priest father, John Mark -fornia ran inside Notre Dame to save the body of Christ the body of Christ to Christians, we know is the Eucharist it's the host, it's the communion. Wafer the New York Times thought he was hauling out a giant statue of Jesus dragging some giant statue on his back or something. List goes on and on. They thought that the church of the holy sepulcher. Is where Jesus is buried. I guess they don't know what a Christian is. They don't know these basic aspects of religion. And it absolutely destroys their credibility destroys their ability even to report on world events, like the attack in Sri Lanka.

"More perception and reality for you. Some interesting information. Came out the Pew Research Center on overall crime in this country, just conceptually for a moment. If I were to ask you if you think we have more or less crime if we're more or less safe ever say twenty five years ago. What would you say generally in this country? If you think that we have more crime that makes you normal. According to sixty eight percent of folks that crime is actually rising. However, the past twenty five years we actually seen a decline in fact, violent crime Beilin crime done forty nine percent property crime is actually down fifty percent. You see the difference in perception versus reality one of the concepts. I've I've talked about for a while we are still somewhat trained conditioned inclined to think that the mainstream news media has more influence than actually does. And I will always remind you that if mainstream news media, which according to the media research center has been ninety one percent negative and its coverage of the Trump administration random on the mainstream news, but he had the kind of influence that at times, we think it has. There's no way in Haiti's that Donald Trump is president the United States. Right. So by virtue of him, even being president. You know, you know, even though it might fr. Frustrate you that they're not winning the their influence is waning. But the most pervasive form of bias in news media is a mission the information that you don't receive. So where this all comes together in the where this fits into the various, different puzzle pieces here. When you are not presented with the reason why we are seeing crime come down. When you're not hearing that crime has come down that is a form of bias in and of itself. Pew Research Center is not some kind of right wing organization, you're going. Wow. The you know crime sat down. That's very interesting. What so we're I ended up doing the next layer of research into this being in Florida. I pay attention to obviously, everything that's going on in our state here. Last year we received word that crime reached a forty seven year low in our state forty seven year low. This while Florida had an all time record number of gun owners with a more concealed carry permit holders in Florida than any other state in the country that surprises a lot of people even four radiance. And when I ended up taking a deeper dive, you could actually take a look and connect the dots. And see that be more. Legal gun owners. He had in the state the lower the crime rate, which actually coincided with other information other information like this that the average concealed carry permit holder is fifty percent less likely to ever commit a crime than someone who doesn't own a gun..

"Again that we haven't had Chuck Schumer Nancy Pelosi have to answer? To that claim to that charge to to that desire need, why is it that the border patrol for the first time ever endorsed, not just the wall plan, but he presidential candidate. Because they felt it was that important talk a little bit about perception versus reality. Hey, it is Brian mutt? Your friend in south, Florida, hosted the morning, rush WJ. No in West Palm Beach. The Brian lead show w IOT in Miami. And it's always an honor and a pleasure to be here as a guest host for the great one, Mark Levin, and we are all in luck. Because guest host the palooza ends tonight on Monday, his brilliance is back with all of us. Now, while we take a look at perception and reality. The southern border here for a moment. So if your perception your perception is that we do not need additional. Border fencing walls. What have you anything physical down there? How is it? The you can just cast aside the reality, it's a spouse to you. By the folks that are on the southern border. Actually, they're doing the job. How can anybody justify that one? See if the perception is that it's not needed. Would you personally feel different? If that was your reality. You're the person down there. You probably have seen just a little taste of some of what takes place, for example, projectiles come across and then heaven forbid, they actually use tear-gas, right? Then they have to deal with it. I was that was that overly aggressive. It's very easy for somebody. Who's a newsroom in New York to question, isn't it? But what were the reality? If that person was not in a newsroom in New York. But rather was that border patrol agent at had stuff lobbed data realities hold the different than. Talking about perception and reality. About this partial government shutdown and the reality is that our household. Our average L household cost for federal government poise is fifteen thousand two hundred dollars per year. If we actually had a cut checks, unpaid as to the federal government to pay all the federal employees. That eat up that fifteen thousand two hundred dollars per year. Would we challenge the status quo would are what the reality of what we're paying for begin to set in would you feel differently about it would the status quo? Be okay. Or would you see the potential of that fifteen thousand dollars to your family and go? Wow. Is this really the best use of my money? See the perception is very easy to just go along status quo government until the reality sets in now because the federal government has done its level best over generations to reverse. The course protecting itself that protecting the status quo. With federal withholding being right at the top of the list. So you don't see it. We just take it from you. And you're so fortunate to get to keep what you earn even though it's the exact opposite thorough government doesn't have a dollar until we've earned it. And then we pay it to the federal government. Would the reality? Be different. I still even with yesterday's question. When I asked what you would you rather have three thousand eight hundred dollars this year. Warn into the partial government shutdown. Would you write personally a check for thirty eight hundred dollars to in the partial government shutdown? Because that's the savings. That's the savings per household. If this war just to go on in perpetuity, which again is not good governance every time I put out something like that. Somebody's way is that. Right. And we can't go. I'm not saying this is the right way to go about it. I'm illustrating points. Yes. Two weeks without a quarter of the federal government and the sun still rises, and we have the best economy in a generation. Oh, by the way. But the broader point is we do not need anywhere near as much government is we have and if we were actually tasked with having to pay for it on an ongoing basis and really think about what we're paying for. We would do it differently. I doubt we would do it differently. I have no doubt the liberals would do differently. I have no doubt that of Nancy Pelosi and her family were on the southern border in areas where there isn't any fencing, and they were tasked with having apprehend whatever comes across the border. They might feel a little bit different about maybe providing some type of a physical barrier. Right. So here's more perception and reality for you. Some interesting information. Came out the Pew Research Center on overall crime in this country, just conceptually moment. If I were to ask you if you think we have more or less crime if we're more or less safe ever say twenty five years ago. What would you say generally in this country? If you think that we have more crime that makes you normal. According to sixty eight percent of folks think that crime is actually rising. However, the past twenty five years we've actually seen a decline in fact, violent crime violent crime up forty nine percent property crime is actually down fifty percent. You see the difference in perception versus reality one of the concepts. I've I've talked about for awhile, we are still so trained conditioned inclined to think that the mainstream news media has more influence than actually does. And I will always remind you that if mainstream news media, which according to the media research center has been ninety one percent negative in its coverage of the Trump administration random long street news, but he had to kind of influence that at times, we think it has. There's no way. Haiti's that Donald Trump is president the United States. Right. So by virtue of even being president. You know, you know, even though it might frustrate you that they're not winning their influence is waning. But the most pervasive form of bias in news media is a mission the information that you don't receive Frank. So where this all comes together in where this fits into the various different puzzle pieces here when you are not presented with the reason why we are seeing crime come down. When you're not hearing that crying has come down that is the form of bias in and of itself. The Pew Research Center is not some kind of right wing organization, you're going, well, the, you know, crime stand down. That's very interesting. What so we're I ended up joining the next layer of research into this being in Florida. I pay attention to obviously everything going on in our state here last year we received word that Klein reached a forty seven year low in our state forty seven year low. This while Florida had an all time record number of gun owners with a more concealed carry permit holders in Florida than any other state in the country. That's the price is a lot of people even four idiots. And when I ended up taking a deeper dive, you could actually take a look and connect the dots. And see that the more. Legal gun owners. He had in the state the lower the crime rate, which actually coincided with other information other information like this is that the average concealed carry permit holder is fifty percent less likely to ever commit a crime. Then someone who doesn't own a gun. That's all part of bias, a news media omission of that type of information coincides with other information going back to the Clinton administration which found that there is far more far more crime that is prevented by defensive use of firearms that never committed with them. That also was backed up by research by multiple universities, including four to stay in recent years once again showing the defensive use of firearms prevents more crime, then is ever caused by it. But what is put in front of you? Well, we do see that. There are some really horrific events really big bad awful. That's the kind of colors our perception. You might have something like what happened in Vegas, or we might have something like what happened at the pulse nightclub in Orlando or Stillman, Douglas and Broward County, Florida, those types of things often color our imagination, and that is where we still have mainstream news media influence that is calling the picture that is also pulse. And part of the reason that I'm bringing this up. There was a piece of legislation proposed yesterday that not many people. Know about or or paid attention to its gun control. And it came from none other than Senator Marco Rubio and in what's all this about? So every time you have a new congress all depending legislation from previous congress that is dead that Bill on Capitol Hill from schoolhouse rock. He was part of the top two percent. Only two percent. A proposed legislation ever passes into becoming law and literally an average of more than ten thousand bills die when with each new congress that comes into session in the wake of the shooting and Stephen Douglas in Florida last year Marco Rubio proposed some reforms that became part of comprehensive gun control here in Florida. And it went nowhere. The very first thing he decided to do in the new congress was proposed yet again. Now, here's something to watch. Whatever you happen to think of it. Yeah. Or nay we tend to also through perception and reality. I think that everything is necessarily partisan, for example, any type of gun control or reform is necessarily something that Republicans don't want and and necessarily something that Democrats do want and in the like, but. Somewhere along the line. There can be a level of pragmatism that enters the equation. And this is where for a little bit anomalous this way. Four did pass comprehensive gun control reform last year. And it happened to be reformed that as a proud supporter of the second amendment and a gun owner, I generally supported and it happened to pass with a completely Republican-controlled state government here in Florida happened to be signed into law by our Republican governor, Rick Scott who happens to be the incoming junior Senator from Florida. So as Marco Rubio proposed this as you have Rick Scott that is going to be another Senator from Florida who actually helped install it and make it happen. One of the things are likely to see play out is some type of reform here. Now, you might be aware the President Trump ended up using his pen to sign out through that action bump socks he is also indicated that he could be open to some type of reform, obviously, Democrats if. They are serious about any types of reform. The system might get behind this in the house. They're actually two types of legislation to two directions that might have a better chance. A better chance of passing in this new divided congress then previously you might not like it.

"That's the savings per household. If this war just to go on in perpetuity, which again is not good governance every time I put out something. Like that somebody's is that right? And then we can't go. I'm not saying this is the right way to go about it. I'm illustrating points. Yes. Two weeks without a quarter of the federal government and the sun still rises, and we have the best communist generation, oh, by the way. But the broader point is we do not need anywhere near as much government as we have. And if we were actually tasked with having to pay for it on an ongoing basis and really think about what we're paying for. We would do it differently. I've no doubt we would do it differently. I have no doubt the liberals would do differently. I'm no doubt that. If Nancy Pelosi and her family were on the southern border and areas where there isn't any fencing, and they were tasked with having apprehend whatever comes across that border. They might feel a little bit different about. Maybe providing some type of physical barrier. Right. So here's more perception and reality for you. Some interesting information. Came out the Pew Research Center on overall crime in this country, just conceptually for moment. If I were to ask you if you think we have more or less crime if we're more or less safe ever say twenty five years ago. What would you say generally in this country? If you think that we have more crime that makes Cording to sixty eight percent of folks think that crime is actually rising. However, the past twenty five years we've actually seen a decline in fact, violent crime violent crime up forty nine percent property crime is actually down fifty percent. You see the difference in perception versus reality one of the concepts. I've I've talked about for awhile, we are still somewhat trained conditioned inclined to think that the mainstream news media has more influence and actually does. And I will always remind you that if mainstream news media, which according to the media research center has been ninety one percent negative in its coverage of the Trump administration right along the mainstream news media had the kind of influence that at times, we think it has. There's no way in Haiti's that Donald Trump is president the United States. Right. So by virtue of him, even being president. You know, you know, even though it might fr. Frustrate you that they're not winning that their influence is waning. But the most pervasive form of bias in news media is a mission the information that you don't receive. So where this all comes together in where this fits into the various, different puzzle pieces here. When you are not presented with the reason why we are seeing crime come down. When you're not hearing that crying has come down that is a form of bias in and of itself. The Pew Research Center is not some kind of right wing organization. You're going. Wow. You know, crime Sandown. That's very interesting. What so we're I ended up doing the next layer of research into this being in Florida. I pay attention to obviously, everything that's going on in our state here. Last year we received word that crime reached a forty seven year low in our state forty seven year low. This while Florida had an all time record number of gun owners with a more concealed carry permit holders in Florida than any other state in the country surprises a lot of people even four radiance. And when I ended up taking a deeper dive, you could actually take a look in connect the dots. And see that the more. Legal gun owners. He had in the state the lower the crime rate, which actually coincided with other information other information like this is that the average concealed carry permit holder is fifty percent less likely to ever commit a crime than someone who doesn't own a gun. That's all part of bias, a news media omission of that type of information coincides with their information going back to the Clinton administration which found that there is far more far more crime that is prevented by defensive use of firearms never committed with them. That also was backed up by research by multiple universities, including four to state in recent years once again showing the defensive firearms prevents more crime than is ever caused by it. But what is put in front of you? Well, we do see that. There are some really horrific events really big bad awful events that kind of colors our perception. You might have something like what happened in Vegas, or we might have something like what happened at the pulse nightclub in Orlando or Stillman Douglas and Broward County, Florida, those types of things often color our imagination, and that is where we still have mainstream news media influence that is calling the picture that is also false. And part of the reason that I'm bringing this up. There was a piece of legislation proposed yesterday that not many people. Know about or or paid attention to its gun control. And it came from none other than Senator Marco Rubio, and what's all this about? So every time you have a new congress all the pending legislation from previous congress that is dead that Bill on Capitol Hill from schoolhouse rock. He was part of the top two percent. Only two percent. A proposed legislation ever passes into becoming law and literally an average of more than ten thousand bills die when with each new congress that comes into session in the wake of the shooting. Stephen Douglas in Florida last year Marco Rubio proposed some reforms that became part of comprehensive gun control here in Florida. And it went nowhere. The very first thing he decided to do in the new congress was propose it yet. Again. Now, here's something to watch. Whatever you happen to think of it your name, we tend to also through perception and reality. I think that everything is necessarily partisan, for example, any type of gun control or reform is necessarily something that Republicans don't want and and necessarily something that Democrats do want and in the like, but. Somewhere along the line. There can be a level of pragmatism that enters the equation. And this is where Ford is a little bit anomalous this way. Four dead pass comprehensive gun control reform last year. And it happened to be reformed that as a proud supporter of the second amendment and a gun owner, I generally supported and it happened to pass with a completely Republican-controlled state government here in Florida happened to be signed into law by our Republican governor, Rick Scott who happens to be the incoming junior Senator from Florida. So as Marco Rubio proposed this as you have Rick Scott that is going to be another Senator from Florida who actually helped install it and make it happen. One of the things you're likely to see play out is some type of reform here. Now, you might be aware the President Trump ended up using his pen to sign out through action bump socks he is also indicated that he could be open to some type of reform, obviously, Democrats if. They are serious about any types of reform. The system might get behind this in the house. There are actually two types of legislation to two directions. The might have the better chance. A better chance of passing in this new divided congress then previously you might not like it. But this happens to be one of them, potentially this gun control, the forest style reform that could take place federally. The other happens to be an infrastructure, which of course, is something that President Trump Brennan, but Republicans didn't want to fund through digital debt spending. But Democrats have been supportive of. So just a little bit of inflammation, kind of put in some of the perceptions of the reality. Then also some of what's going on in some of what you're likely to hear about about the time that perhaps this partial government shutdown does come to an end, I'm Brian Mudd in for the great one.

"Guys ever heard of the Pew Research Center. A nonpartisan fact tank it's really important for this next. Joe? Researchers are developing technology that could one day lead to humans being able to emit lasers from there is it's just one of the many amazing projects coming out of the Pew Research Center. Wasn't that good a joke? Although the story is true contact lenses could let you shoot lasers from your is finally for for what reason so you can shoot lasers out of your eyes. Series with them. Yeah. Like what though don't don't have the slightest idea and give my enemies a heads up of what I'm going to do to their laser is exactly disclose troop movements next county. So here's something kind of funding before I get to the meat of the segment. So somebody went down the YouTube the YouTube wormhole, which we've all done, I think, oh, yeah. It would seem pretty clear that they they had searched on flopping is a dance to see what it looks like we're talking about that earlier. It's sweeping the nation, especially among them. And somehow they ended up searching on the Charleston dance. That's what you do on YouTube, right? You're into something. A little side idea. Or you think is next thing. You know? You haven't eaten in days, and you've sold your pants. It's not until your computer runs out of battery juice that you finally turn off your YouTube. But so somebody searched the Charleston, Charleston dance, and they're watching Charleston video and the suggestions to the side are a bunch of old tiny things super he thinks the Charleston was a dance way back in the thirties, or whatever one of the suggestions, his Marshall Phillips attempts to do three pushups. Wow. What? Now is that an age thing? Or is there a house Marshall associated with the Charleston?.
