"The appreciation of the power of a really good coach a really good coach can can have big big effects and I think we start to court that idea out of Swertz into the society. I look at our country right now. It feels like a kind of craftily coach team like a lot of talent. Not well coached. I think that the combination of the go away kind of insights and the Analytics Movement moving into coaching the coaches already come a long way in his status in the world But I think he's I think he's go places so you all are the right to work. Just don't screw it up. That's one of the greatest analogy as one of the greatest analogies. I've ever heard. Our country is really talented but not well coached. It's so true. We have so much more potential. We could be so much better. We need coaches out there. We need better coaches in key places. Y'All I'll leave it at that you get laid. There's a lot to be said there. I'll leave leaving where it is. There's a bunch a what about during the quarantine during this whole. Cova nineteen Crisis what is gaining your interest. Right now what are you what? What are you look at? I mean there's so much going on and it's obviously devastating to the economy for for people's Health for Just general wellbeing. What are you looking at? What are you seeing? That's of interest to you now. So the big thing is this is apropos. The absence of a good coaching at the top. The way that's the way society compensates when the leadership is not coordinating the society and their characters. Their characters are out there kind of figured out. Okay the federal government is not going to be helping us. We can figure this out on our own and those people become very interesting to me. One little example. So there's a big problem with has been a big problem in this country with the both the nature of the testing and the availability of testing. And you can't really. You can't really fight the virus I if you don't know where it is is like hit him and and especially all people want around. They don't even know they have and and so there was a an infectious disease guy at the University of UCSF who. I met years ago because I didn't know what I was GONNA do. But I just. He knew his he was such a good characters. Joe Teresi and he's the guy who if you one day have like a thirty are growing on the side of your head and nobody can explain why you eventually end up in his office. Any weird disease if he is the guy and he and he is been able to isolate and fine and describe viruses that other people don't understand this guy who he runs Mark Zuckerberg Priscilla Chan gave six hundred million bucks a few years ago to create something called bio hub and the bio is a research facility run by this guy and its mission was to eradicate disease by the end of the sent. You know why not truck but this guy pitted because he saw what the problem was and he turned the whole place in corona virus testing now testing but also when they get positive people who've been positive they can sequence the genome and they can start to do detective work about how move for the Society. So it's people like this really interesting to me WHO's just said. Okay we're is this isn't going to be done in the normal way. This is going to be solved the way the South Korean solved it. Or where the Germans of solve that you're gonNA have to attack and have started kind of jump into the battle. Those people really interests me. And so that's can spending time with those people interesting? And do you think these people are joining forces or is it more individual battles kind of all over? No No. I think that I think what we're seeing our society trying to figure out a different solution to the problem that was there was a plan a and it never got executed anywhere now in playing being. It's messy but but it's such. It's such a resourceful. Society is such a talented society. Yeah I you know. We're going to figure it out. You're just GONNA figure out in a wholly.

"For joining us. Thanks very much. We believe that the future we all want for our children is possible. We set a goal. Can we all together work to cure? Preventer manage all disease within our children's lifetime so that was a pediatrician Dr Priscilla Chan and she was speaking at a big press conference back in two thousand sixteen. She was announcing that she and her spouse facebook. Founder Mark Zuckerberg would be spending three billion dollars over a decade to fund basic science research. So it's been three and a half years since that announcement. Rebecca decided to check up on their work. Rebecca Interview Chan and talked to scientists and other observers as part of a new profile so rebecca at sort of a high level water channels October spending their billions of dollars on their focus has been building tools and tech infrastructure for basic science. They're doing this under the auspices of the Chans Eckert Initiative which is the LLC that a couple setup to do their philanthropy and so far They allocated budget of three billion dollars for their work in science. I ran the numbers on this one out of curiosity and compared that allocation to their eighty billion dollar fortune without revealing my precise net worth though. You can probably guess the Ballpark. This would be the equivalent of me donating a couple thousand dollars to science over a decade however that said you know this is still a lot of money for researchers who are working in basic science and their contributions are certainly making an impact One thing that I found pretty interesting is is how they have chosen this broader field of tech infrastructure of tools rather than picking a particular area. Sean Parker picked cancer. Immunotherapy Bill Gates picked infectious disease. So it's interesting to see that much broader focus. So Rebecca does that mean they would never get into kind of biotech or traditional drug development. Type stuff I asked. Priscilla dot question when I interviewed her the other day. Here's what she had say. We haven't run towards that work because we feel like there's a lot of good support existing infrastructure and funders in that space that are doing a great job and I'm not sure we bring added tools expertise to really contribute in a new way. But we're pretty excited about what we can do right now in the basic science world with our current approach so having done that interview. What do you find most interesting? Priscilla Chan yet. So she is a pediatrician. She stepped away from full-time medical practice to run the initiative. A few years back and I find her to be like a surprisingly kind of private person in this role it seems you know in some ways that she chose this life of being a philanthropist but in other ways you know she didn't choose it either. I think had she not married this particular person she might be a pediatrician. Just sort of anonymously practicing so I think she has straddles interesting line between public and private. So Rebecca what's the dynamic between the two of them like so I asked Priscilla that question from the Lens of how think about science you know. He thinks about it from an engineering perspective of like. How do you answer unknown questions? And what are the moon shots that we can support to see or do something previously impossible and I spend more time? You know really thinking about hot. We make sure that net improves. Patient lives and so our conversations are both exciting and frustrating. So this may be a bit of a cynical question but facebook not the most popular commercial entity in the world right now and so. I'm curious to what extent might the chancellor big initiative and the philanthropy kind of be a means of distracting from the company's otherwise bad q score. I mean that's definitely a critique that you hear a lot of It was remarkable. I did story a couple of weeks back about an announcement that chance October. Initiative made They'd be funding thirty patient groups that are working on rare diseases like pretty straightforward story. Like not a whole lot to critique on that one It's nice to give away money to patient groups but my notifications on twitter were just crazy. Everyone was so mad like I was just getting all these notifications about how facebook needs to pay its taxes and people mad about Cambridge at Aleta. It's just wild. How strong reaction facebook generates in in people? I think it speaks to concerns about privacy as well as anger about billionaires in income inequality in the United States so rebecca what is the next step or or steps for the chance eichelberger initiative and their work in basic science. Yes I think the big question for them to. Where do you go from here? You know they set this wildly ambitious goal to hear preventer manage all seizes by twenty one hundred so one benefit of that is is that presumably. They won't be around to be measured as to whether they have achieved their goal by then. But you know if they're going to come anywhere near that goal they're going to have to start knocking out certain diseases and in a lot more money and a lot more progress to to do that or or even begin to do that. You know if you're focusing on on basic science and in tools that's great and that's helpful for scientists but you have to get to the clinic if you're going to start cheering one disease much less. All diseases than lighter is.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Doubles Down On Controversial Political Ad Policy
"Facebook CEO and co founder mark Zuckerberg is doubling down on his company's decision to not take down political ads that contain false information center Burke spoke with CBS this morning co host Gayle king and his wife Priscilla chan was there as well the main thing now that people are talking about the political ads that you don't want to take down political as sick people know false they contain false information it what I believe is that in a democracy it's really important that people can see for themselves what politicians are saying so they can make their own judgments and you know I don't think that a private company should be censoring politicians or news a small group of your employees about two hundred wrote a letter saying that they wish that you would reconsider because they said free speech and paid speech are not the same do they have a point cool this is clearly a very complex issue and a lot of people have have a lot of different opinions the end of the day I just think that in a democracy people should be able to see for themselves what politicians are saying even if they answered containing false information that's an identification should bill to judge for themselves the character of politicians we were in DC recently there it was reported later that you had dinner with the president the White House what was the nature of the meeting can you say sure I mean we talked about a number of things that were there were on his mind and I'm in some of the topics that you read about the news around around our work the dinner was not disclosed by the White House and only became public after the fact to news reports it came as president trump was openly discouraging Facebook from banning political ads listen people say the optic toward good did he try to lobby you in anyway now I mean I I don't think that that's the I think some of the stuff that people talk about our thing gets discussed in these discussions are not really how okay how that works I also want respect that it was a private dinner right and so much of at the same time Facebook faces anti trust investigations into its dominance of the social media market place at least two federal agencies and forty seven U. S. states and territories or asking if the company engages in anti competitive behavior there's no question that there are real issues that that we need to keep on working on it but I think it's important to not lose track of just the enormous good that can be done by bringing people together in building community people who knows a cupboard well see Facebook wouldn't be the company it is today without the influence of his wife Priscilla chan she's a teacher and a doctor wouldn't work and I talk about these issues together is like I also have the lines of being an educator and pediatrician that's work too deeply with families and individuals and all types of communities and when I zoom out I also see that these are societal problems be certain knocks problems that one person one company can fix on their own there's not gonna be some silver bullet but we need to work together as a society for that steady progress that is mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla chan speaking with CBS's

"Title. But are there are some hacks. I mean, there are some extra talking about tax here in your book. Correct. Absolutely. I mean, it there are antiquated ways we've done philanthropy in the past. Absolutely. And I think that there's a lot of old school nonprofits out there that need to renovate they need to they need to clean house and think about doing new taking new approaches like measuring the impact of their work more rigorously. So they can figure out what's working, and what's not and get better on what they do. But this isn't rocket science the strategies that I talk about in this book are not new there. Just what the best organizations are doing. What do you imagine three's going in the future? I'm really hopeful about the next phase of giving. I really believe that we are living in a golden age of fully anther p where there are more ways to give back than ever before. I mean, we see this with ordinary citizens giving back like the the rices fundraiser and Facebook, we see this with people who are giving their time there. They don't people don't just want to write a check and be done. They want to roll up their sleeves and get involved in the nonprofits that they care about. This is what's happening in the racist on. People are saying, yeah. Know, I don't want to just write a check. What? Now, what can I do? And so we need all hands on deck to solve these really pressing social problems that we're facing like climate change, like increasing wealth inequality. And so I think the fact that more people want to get involved is really exciting, and we need to educate the next generation this is so that when they do graduate from college. They are ready to hit the ground running, and they don't have to waste their time. Learning these very basic skills like fundraising and measuring impact on the job. Right. Absolutely. And if you had to pick out a philanthropist, that's doing it in a really innovative way. What would you pick? They give me two or three stories with I'm a huge fan of tipping point that you've had Daniela founder on the show when I went out, and I asked organizations who is your favorite funder, and why tipping point came up. Mo most often become. Because of the fact that they give multi year grants that that nonprofits don't have to worry about whether they're going to get funded next year, and it leads to a more honest conversation. I mean, this is a big problem in the sector. There's no incentive to talk about failure. When you have to get funded and yet anyone from the tech sector knows that failures critical part to celebrate learning and getting better and doing doing better work. And so so it allows them more transparency and allows tipping point to then come in and help organizations figure out how to solve the challenges tipping point gives money to organizations there. There are funder of philanthropies they are. And they're supporting anti poverty work in the area. They've also doing that homelessness. I host this. Yeah. And so it's the multi year grants. It's the capacity building. It's investing in all these strategies that I talk about in social startup success like management training like fundraising a like like storytelling. They bring. In a media coach. Yes to help their nonprofits because you know, media coaching shouldn't be something. That's just relegated to two companies. I mean, it's something that. Yeah. Nonprofits, arguably need just as much and so by investing in the nonprofits that they support I think that ultimately they're able to show better results. And I hope that tipping point will be a model that other philanthropies will learn from an individual donors as well. What else I am a huge fan of organizations that are thinking about how to invest in? Not just organizations themselves but in say initiative like Chan's sucker. Berg is doing incredible work with their hospital or sorry. Their preschool that Chen Priscilla Chan has has led and looking at adverse childhood experiences, and how they can bring their talents from the foundation to bear in this preschool that is helping kids recover from adverse childhood experiences. I'm also a huge fan of the Emerson collective, I think that Lorraine JAL jobs has done a fantastic job of not just investing in the causes that she cares about. But using her voice, and realizing that her voice on on immigration issues is going to be equally as powerful as any money that she can give to nonprofit organizations so you will see..

"He went blind later on his life as well. Yeah. Yeah. And then my second pick is in the end of September the opportunity to go the grace hopper conference, and there I got to hear Priscilla Chan speak, and she gave an amazing talking. I teared up because she talked about the American dream in Halik. She's really just like truly lived at Al. And although there is not necessarily recording that I think she gives a pretty similar talk in like this online easily accessible YouTube video definitely recommend check need out. Just because I think it adds layer depth like both her and like the chancellor Berg initiative that I think. Is sometimes lost in the world attack? And that conferences, quite amazing. Yes, I it was an honored of you mentioned her. No. Yes, massive. Yeah. Some serious foam. Oh the series foam on agus. This would have. Yeah. I have two picks one is a drama that I've been watching called code black. It's a doctor drama, and it's different. I guess it's been out for three seasons by just started. Watching it. It's different from dramas like house where there's this one very very special case. This is the lives of residents in a hospital that has so many patients that they don't have enough resources. A see them jumping from patient juggling five different patients and things just crazy. So I don't know. I think it's very exciting fun to watch and then a shameless plug. My second pick is of medium article that I wrote called them, internship and talks about I talk about kind of like my experiences with mentoring an intern. I've mentored. Two interns, actually forever note. And I've had a great experience. I've learned a lot from it. And I heavily encouraged a lot of engineers to take on that same role. If it's offered to them that if you have the opportunity to mentor enter, and you it's a really fulfilling experience. So it's a great article too. I've read it so highly recommend reading that. Specially it's well on topic. All right. I have two picks one is actually a Netflix original documentary series. So it's more of a TV series. It's probably not for everyone. If you like photography, beautiful pieces in the world is a good one for travel. It's called tales of light like really follows like certain photographers some watched high. I've watched like half of the ones for season, and it's following someone doing like action shot some like doing landscape someone doing animals across the world. Which is it's pretty interesting stuff, and like just amazing places in the world that they're visiting. So I highly recommend not and then. I chose an article that on get hub actions, which I found very interesting that a one of our previous guests Sarah Drazn wrote, and it really explains like how get hub actions or super useful.
