ACCC and Google come to blows over new media bargaining laws
"So if you logged onto google or any associated Google service in the last couple of days is a pretty good chance. You're saying what registered as I guess a kind of warning sign like an aerosol raid it and it's actually Google telling you that you could expect dramatically worse google searches and Youtube responses if the triple say push something through nephew not familiar the I triple says of. Course the consumer watchdog, and if you look at it with context, it's actually quite confusing. What is under threat? So Reo Bogle, what is it? The Google are concerned about six a few years ago. The say embarked on this journey this investigation looking at the impact that facebook and Google in particular what they call digital platforms the impact they've had on journalism here in Australia, and what's happened is there was sent a basically ask Google and facebook negotiate with media here in Australia some of the Big Publishes News Corp Nine Fairfax All the rest to negotiate and try and come up with a way to share profits I suppose off the benefit the Google. facebook get from the media. Those negotiations didn't really pan out and so now they've been forced into sort of bargaining position and a triple C. wants as well as these companies to share some sort of revenue with news publishes here in Australia they want a few other things so they want for example. Google and Facebook to give media publishes twenty eight days. Notice if they're going to change their sort of algorithms in a way that might affect display news. So you can think about Google news when you search for a new story, the way that it displays on the Google News. Tab Are they also want some other things? It's it's all around. Crying to clawbacks a path, a media publishes and potentially some cash and I think what troubles Google here and probably why they've gone so hard is it would be a world I in a way would set a precedent and so they're really doing a full court press. Harassing you on Google and Youtube in on twitter and all the other places. Trying to stir up its base. To fight. This quite vague still code with quite vague still threats from Google. What good was done is they've said, hey, we want you to be worried like we want you to fight for an they've really like they've put the warning sign. That's already like you know makes you feel a way that said that free services may be at risk they say like your personal data maybe affected all these things that. As, an individual I hit your your emotional buttons but the actual specific date of lacking and that's important because they. worked out yet and the triple say said in their sponsorship, we'll get to in a second. I'm sure. But you know they say this is an ongoing process like we are still waiting to hear from all sides we want and we haven't finalized the code but you know Google has really jumped on this nephews this I guess the fact that it is undecided to. In a sense, you know fee mongers I will we don't know exactly what is yet, but it could be anything anything. It's scary. But in what why would the colored as we currently understand it damage the quality of search results like Connecticut I, actually quantify that with anything like with a practical example have google offered any practical examples. One example that people have raised to me is that you need to be a media publisher of a sense sized to bargain full stop. So I think you need to have a revenue over maybe one hundred, twenty, grand, one, hundred, fifty, grand you need to have news media as your business you need to employ journalists. And the argument that's been made to me is that if some publishes are privileged enough to get saying notice of an algorithm change that they would exploit that knowledge and it would push then publishes to the top over smaller ones and so that that could affect search results. That would prejudice small independent publishes. and. So I can see how that's an issue especially for small publishes but how it affects Google search results. From Google perspective I'm curious about why they think that's such a bad thing why they feel that people would be fearful about that outcome

So great to have you. Here, thank you. We're really excited to talk about a mood. It's such an interesting and important project. I'll give a little bias in that. I'm really interested in this in particular because I've been on the board of Sfar for many years, which is the issue of the Torah Academy, the Talmud Academy for lgbtq folks are that comes out of the Experience Lgbtq Q. Folks. It's probably a better way to say it and. When I first heard about a mood I was so excited to hear that there was something that seemed similar from edge use of color perspective. So it's something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time that both of us have and and we're really thrilled to finally have this opportunity. So Mirror I was wondering if we could start with a little bit of the origin story of a mood. In, two, thousand, eighteen, I was invited to be in the Selah Cohort fifteen of bend the arc four juice of color by Jews of color and there I met Ya McCoy will meet her the year previously. And part of that training. Was a study that we that she called. J O C. Tour Academy. And it was several afternoons where we would look text from an anti oppression lands, and at the end of that hurt I was sitting with you who the webster was hard the cohurt. We looked at each other and I said, why does this have to be only part of this training? We need this to be real, and so we started talking with start talking about that. So that was may of two, thousand eighteen. By June or July. Are Corman had come back from Israel at, pass it to you. I did a fulbright year in Israel I live in. Jerusalem and when it came back, I became involved in. J. Fridge which is to cherish on economic justice. And Colored. Caucus. Part of my involvement. J.. Fridge I was connected to Huda Webster An. I approached you Huta saying that I wanted to teach a small class on the politics of Hebrew pronunciation and I wanted to teach it for Jews of color of an Alexi that you're smiling because acid is immensely nerdy deeply nerdy. Added belts deeply important but you huda one up to me and he said what if instead of just having your class, we actually create a container for this kind of learning to happen more often. and. So that really launched the idea of. Jesus, Colored Tour Academy, which became a mood colored tour academy and we started out by a every other week having a person in the community, a Jewish person of color in a community teach whatever they wanted and we we started her first Beta run I'm really got to see what what kinds of topics were interesting. How did the groups of people showed up for different topics differ in and we basically got to conduct all this research We launched our first full year after the high holidays. This past fall in two thousand nineteen. And we just completed our first full year of classes. We got here because for as long as there have been Jewish. People color navigating predominantly white Jewish space the roots have been growing and deepening. People like you. Huda. Myself were able to found something like this because of all that work that had been happening. JESSOP. Color entering wet Jewish is being Jewish spaces and also getting to know one another.

A lot of parents and caregivers are now having to do a lot more helping with online school assignments. There are many things that can be frustrating about being home right now. which is why responding with kindness is more important than ever. When we react to something, someone sadder done without thinking about it. It could lead to a saying or doing something that will hurt others. And while it might make you feel good for a little bit. I'm willing to bet that feeling won't last long. However! If we take an extra moment or two to think about how we will respond that lets us think about how to make better choices in our actions and gives us time to choose helpful, not hurtful words. Even when it's hard. It might help to remind yourself to take some deep breaths before saying or doing anything. Give it a try next time. Here's one more kindness story. That was sent an e-mail. It says hi. My name is Armani. I am nine years old. I listened to peace out every night. It all started on my second day at my new school. I had no one to play with. I came up to emily.

Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do name. Reo Worlds and I am at interaction designer. Currently working at frog design is a design consultancy firm monitor the largest ones in globally. Actually Nice. Now what's a regular day like for you there and I know that this is probably a odd question to ask given what we're going through right now at this pandemic but talk to kind of like what your regular day to day is like yes my regular day to day before pandemic usually typically wouldn't frog were teens so the teens are filled with like strategists depending on a project does show designers designers interaction designers like myself. We usually really coming together to brainstorm on whatever the project that we're currently working on so sometimes is is a lot of white boarding the day as sometimes it's about a hits downs like executing the project other times. You may be for myself especially being interaction designer. We're doing like user testing giant to understand how to use fill about the experienced our creating so it really varies like everyday how we work in function but usually when you own a project at rock and your with your team you Richard for months so you are with that team the whole entire time so usually like you in your little corner which you're cheating working brainstorming ideology. Sounds like there's a lot of heads down work that you get to do to focus on a project. Yeah it is a lot of hits down sometimes so when I think of it down. It's like knee working by myself. A lot of times frog really big with collaboration. They believe in like a lot of bringing together you know especially from different disciplines is rare that.

Making Time for Meditation With Ariel Gartner
"I'm your host and this week we're going to talk about something we all know about. We all know we should do but we might have trouble finding time for it in our busy lives. Meditation has incredible healing value for their mind and our body and today's guest is on a mission to get the whole world meditating. Reo Garden is a neuroscientist psychotherapist mom former fashion designer and the founder of Tech Company Muse created to make meditation easier. She has spoken about the benefits of meditation on stages around the world ranging from Ted talks to mit to south by South West. This week. She's here to talk about how we can. Master the art of meditating and find ways to fit it into our hectic wives are welcome to live happy now. It is a complete pleasure to be here. I mean what is better than living happy now? All exactly and you have so much to say about this. We have so many points that we can touch on with you. Because of what you've done and your interest in meditation and the things that you're doing to move meditation forward so I guess a great starting point is to find out how you personally got interested in meditation shirt so my own background is trained as a neuroscientist and I was working as psychotherapists promised a decade and I began working with an early brain computer interface device. So a little electrode that could track the changes in your brain activity and we recognize that the best thing we could do with this device was teach people to meditate. We had some insight into what was going on in people's brains and you know the brain is the seat of all of our experience. Anything youth think see smell talk about it as all mediated by your brain but we have so little access to it and when he recognized that we had way to help people reflect back on what was going on in their mind We realized that the best way to use this was to apply the tool to teach people to meditate so I was a psychotherapist in private practice. I'd be trying to teach my patients to meditate but frankly I sucked at it. I was somebody. Brain bounced all over the place. And I'm like I'm not good at meditation and I was teaching my patience and you know they would rarely really established the habit and we recognize that if we had a tool that could make meditation easier. We could fundamentally deploy broadscale a win. Did Meditation Become so accepted and embraced? You know when I was growing up I didn't hear about it. So when did it become accepted and also scientifically became something that they embrace as a practice? It's a good question so now there's over a thousand published studies documenting the scientifically validated impacted. Meditation on People's lives as a clinician as a therapist. The early two thousands like two thousand five thousand six it started to become part of our training and then towards the later to thousands. You heard about it more and more by twenty ten. It was one of the front line approaches for trauma and other obviously. There's lots of purchase trauma but meditation was something you were told to reteach patients from a general consumer perspective. It wasn't really until twenty fourteen. Twenty thirteen that you started to hear about it. In the general public at that point meditation was on the cover of Time magazine and it just cracked open that trend and you started to see a flood of articles of big. Ceo's were meditating athletes who are meditating and now only six or seven years later. Meditation is known as something that you should be doing along side brushing your teeth eating well and exercising. It's just understood among the educated populace that it's what you should be doing for your home. It's been a very fast ramp and we hear that you should do it but can you explain why because we here. It's good for you. It's going to help you be more calm. Be MORE PRESENT. But how does it really benefit us? What is it doing to our brains shirt? So meditation very simply is a practice or training that leads to healthy and positive mind states and there are many different forms of meditation. That you might have heard of a zen meditation walking meditation. Mindfulness the most common form that people learn. I is focused attention. Meditation so in focused attention meditation. What you're doing is you're putting your attention on your breath and when your mind eventually wanders away from her breath taller mountains. Do you then noticed that your mind has wandered and the new. Choose to come back to your breath. So it's actually incredibly simple exercise your attentions on your breath. Your mind wanders onto the grocery list or something else you say. Oh my mind wandered away. Okay backed my breath now. Well this might sound really simple. It's actually quite hard to do consistently and the simple thing leads to some tremendous benefits as I mentioned. There's over a thousand published studies demonstrating meditations ability to impact your brain your body your health. Your interpersonal relationships your productivity and more and so breaking down this very simple exercise most of us go through our lives with their minds. Just on autopilot you. We have thoughts in our head and we assume that those are supposed to be the thoughts that are there. That's just what happens and a lot of those thoughts are negative repetitive stressful when not particularly helpful. And they simply loop in our minds and we follow them and we think about them and then they make our experience of life somewhat negative stressful in repetitive. And Meditation. What you're doing when you notice that your mind has wandered and you choose instead of following. That thought like you normally would and now thinking about the grocery list or your upcoming basketball game or wherever. Your mind wanders. You're saying no I'M NOT GONNA follow that wandering thought. I'm going to choose to take my mind elsewhere onto something that is neutral like your breath and as soon as you do that you change your relationship to your thoughts see you now for the first time recognize that you have a choice about what you were thinking and so you can take your mind off of thoughts that are negative stressful repetitive. It's Nope I don't need to be there. Let me go back to something neutral and so as you do that over time you train your mind to stay in a place that is neutral. That is calmer that is not filled with thoughts. And that is actually in the present moment. And when you're in the present moment you're not thinking about the past or the future which is where your worries and concerns live the present moment you just have. What's Hyun in front of you? It's one thing to have that experience while you're meditating. How long does it take until you have that same experience when not meditating? You know even after you've stopped you're mad at the moment you have control over whether your mind is going so like anything. It's a practice. You can't just go to the gym once and then expect to be strong among later. You know you do it consistently as you do it consistently you built the practice so for some people you know. It takes a couple sittings of meditation to kind of get. What's going on and then it takes a couple of weeks maybe to start to notice that okay you feel a little bit calmer and then after a few months you recognize that you have more ability to really manage your mind. You feel less distracted throughout the day. You find yourself more focused you know. Maybe your relatives are noticing changes. How long does someone need to meditate in like daily because people say I don't have five minutes I don't have ten minutes? I don't know how long I'm supposed to meditate. How long do you need to meditate every day for it to be effective? So that's a good question and what you WanNa be doing is starting off with a small amount because the most important part about meditation is doing it regularly and building the habit. So if you start off with ten minutes Dan Meditation and that amount of time. It's frustrating to. You're probably not GONNA do it. So some people start with as little as three minutes or four minutes five minutes and then build their way up to ten. Most of the studies are done with twenty minutes per dave meditation. But it's also been shown that you can get benefit with ten minutes of meditation and that will give you an ice consistent practice us and is it something you necessarily have to do sitting in a corner quite a you know. Do you need to make space for it? Does it become something that you can do really anywhere. Ideally at something that you can do anywhere because what you're ultimately building is the skill of being able to be focused and attentive and in the moment wherever you are in a meeting in a crowded environment in times in real life where you're frustrated and you need those skills. So people find it useful to have a spot in their homeowners. Quiet because you can then spend that time really sitting with yourself and observing your thoughts but as you get better at it you want to be putting yourself in all sorts of situations where you practice your meditation so that you can draw on that scale when you need it anywhere

"Vowed safe offers language Mardi people born in the sixties and seventies very small number of first language speakers if we look at Mardi born in eighteen nineties the sexiest a greater percentage of those who have Maria fist language. Compared with that previous group porn sixties and seventies and so I have looked at this informative and surveys and surveys. You have to be very careful about you. Imagine Viagra all the time that you know these differences a big enough they'd beyond imagine a very We can be pretty confident as to what they mean so the next question is why. Are we getting these different results. And my argument is that unfortunately the question on the census as essentially I would say is vague. Since what I'm saying thing is I don't think the census gives us a reliable pitcher. I think we're actually getting a somewhat more reliable pitcher if we look at those first language statistics two six which do show evidence of a revival If we compare the first language into the speaking proficiency the thing we see there is this quote a lot of people who you have moldy or say their mouth as a first language but then as adults I say well actually now my proficiency is not very good good. So there's a degree of attrition which I might they might have been born into a home where molly was was spoken more than English English but for various reasons they have lost the language year in the world. Think of it is you can get kids started a- As fiddling with speakers you speak to them as young children or whatever but then there's another whole journey in maintaining language and getting it into account of adult level of usage. I think add knowledge of what's really happening is is actually really quite patchy. Yeah an undischarged sort of shed a bit of light on it up to the nineteen sixties. It was a really a very negative attitude towards mountie and let him out. He went who could speak language speaker to their children in the seventies you start stop to get a lot of vegetation for Mardi language in schools that this petition ninety seventy two petitions so And various things starting batting up like data to teach Mari to families and so on. That's a beginning of a big change of consciousness for Mardi but also this. I've seen this sort of gradual change of consciousness. furtherest two vessels. Well because I'm not mighty and I think that Sultan important pad you know to have a sense that is more acceptance of the language is probably an important padded his. It's a mysterious process. I remember twenty years ago trying to find a sort of guidebook to how do we go about language revitalization. Is there some way somebody. That's down at the control. You how it works no. Nobody's really done this. Kind of a revitalization vitalize ation of an indigenous language. Lots of people all around the world. Look to Mardi Moutier in the front this really. What about Wales I think don't well seniors wiles as an executive somewhat different example while to sound very well in using education to will both I maintain and actually expand language but at the most recent statistics are looked? At for Welsh they have not turned around the intergenerational national language transmission the learning of the language in the home is still appears to be declining and wells. There is a kind of revival through education And we may have thought that was sort of the case with Maui because a lot of the research has tended Vegas on Coronado and could Copa Oh papa and educational interventions and so. We've almost noten what's been happening in families and the other thing I found also also in the research is that people. His his language is melody. Were extremely likely to go to Colorado and could cope up a so the the things are sort of and twenty again. I think ear. There really is strong evidence of this sort of groundswell reversal of the previous loss of mountain As the revival is actually going on but meanwhile we I suspect we won't even say it in the twenty s since the statistics. We might see this Quiz Jeff Question. You ask different questions you get different. Data epilepsy steals statistical. Issue here. And what's your thinking because I think the government's goal is one million Terrell speakers by twenty forty. Actually I haven't really looked at in detail depends Has Been indicated. The question probably match on exactly how you define line. Who's a speaker and what questions you ask people? Just go about that sort of cautiously optimistic. It's a had struggled really elite and as an important to yo you know you're not just doing it for the sake of looking at data as as the revival of the language important to your peers. It is I grew up in strider and yet my my brother marriage and aboriginal one hit tribe. A group of people had their around particular language. As a child I learnt that the last night if speak here had died in the nineteen sixties. This who it was struck from the saddest. Saddest thing yeah and But I came ever hit a New Zealand in the seventies and started lending Mardi about the second year that I was here and I had a wonderful experience with that actually become reasonably proficient in speaking which I know you're Loa can still understand what people say. So I you know I do have a strong personal bond with the language itself and I would the whole the concept of the the survival and revival of languages. That's sort of close. That's the detail today.

I'd say it's probably about eighteen months right and you make it eighteen months. You got four five accounts reach each feeding it two or three listings month you get ten twelve listings a month coming in one hundred deals a year then you can start expanding into the next level but that's normally about eighteen gene months at the ball.

"Broker. I was like i've never experienced ninety percent drop and this is this is when i had hired my first virtual assistant had started building thing like i was a broker and all that but the mistake that i made back at that time was i didn't track numbers like i didn't know what was going on locally in my market get statewide on a national so four people who are actually tracking the market. What are some of the stats that you think are important. I'm start looking at d._o._m.'s okay before we go that far. You have to look at something a little further for the first time ever. We have really segmented markets yet. Okay you've got bifurcated. Markets tried for gated. If you look i'll take las vegas zappala just outside of vegas in the lower end. Anything under three hundred thousand multiple offers yep anything five to seven. Maybe you'll sell it in a couple of months anything over million you can't give away. There is no demand for it. Okay so understand. That's happening a lot of markets in the interesting thing about the full cycle. This time is the average sales. Price of an orioles should be twenty to thirty percents below the medium for most. It's it's actually thirty above the median so what it is is a mixture problem instead of low in properties for closing and being defaulted on its the higher end properties that fault defaulting. It's the jumbo loans so a lot of my members. They're getting multi million dollar listings on a regular basis because that's the faults folks are actually occurring is in the upper areas and if you look at your own market look at the low end look at the mid segment look at the high end then targets your business okay. There's like right now here in vegas. We try to give me a two million dollar listing. Keep it. I'm not going to sell it gimmie three three hundred thousand listings. That'd be gone in a day hi right what's easier. Agents have to work smart based on their own market so you have to look at your own market. Look at the inventory look at the d._o._m.'s the price differentials and get a feel for it spend your time and your marketing dollars on where the stuff is moving so if you're an incoming market like phoenix you know. Are you going to go out and take buyers around all day where they have to write five offers. They still don't get a property right. No let the dumb agents do that because that's a waste of time you the one that controls the list on that property where it sells that you're getting the five offers on change focus if you're in some of the other markets in the northeast certain price reaches. You can't give those houses way. Don't list the list the price points that are moving or worked in the buyers with his inventory by that that same token vows here in vegas three hundred fifty thousand dollar buyer. I'm not gonna waste my time. I'm never going to get him. All right could be ten offers that everything that price range but if you give me a million dollar buyer i know tons of inventory for that they can have their pick right so pick and choose work listings and the buyers as for the marcus arcus segments and what it really is. That's efficient and pay attention to what's happening in your market in the different price kind of strategies yeah makes sense <hes> <hes> okay where are yeah what so what stats should a real estate broker no other than what's happening in their market on on a national level and like what are some of the stats that you guys track as r._e._o. Brokers we track the default rates and we tracked the portfolio sales and it's not really that we track the national market per se what we're looking for is. The oreo really isn't with the banks anymore. That's under snow mer right when a loan goes was into the fault. It's golden n._p._r.

"Everything you need to now because real estate is not about working hard. It's about working smart and most real estate agents hal. Unfortunately fortunately some of the brokers are worse. We really don't know what they're doing. If we're just nobody talk them correctly and they don't like to learn either which is kind of a problem but that's the agents yeah. I love it okay. If you're listening right now please. Let's put those that website in the notes of of this show so people can just click in jump in there you know michael one of the things one of the crazy things that <hes> the reason my out does was born was because i was an r._e._o. Broker and my asset managers started telling me that i had to do a weekly weekly report and i had to do drive bys and the b._p._o.'s and all the paperwork that was associated with it so i actually hired somebody from the philippines to actually do all that back office stuff and then all my other r._e._o. Friends in the industry guys. I'm sure you know started saying hey daniel. Where'd you get that virtual assistant like how can you help me get a couple and so we built basically an entire industry of helping people with leverage in we started in the arianespace because back in two thousand eight when we launched his business that was the only business out there and so if you're listening right now and you want to have more information you can text mod. Imo d two three one nine nine six but we're gonna keep going deep with you michael. I want to understand this isn't for everybody i. I love that you say. It's a scalable business r._e._o. But how would somebody get started if they've never done it before like what's what are the what are the. What's the steps all right. You put him in a really bad position here as head of the n._b._a. I train all of those members short. I helped them in work with that. Yep a i pay to be a part of the group eric careful what i'm allowed to say outside of that group i gotcha i gotcha but my best advice would be about few do things r._e._o. Brokers require a very specific skill set you have to understand the legal aspects from the eviction to take property on his side to a cash for keys. You also have to have your cats utilities on you also need a good construction background because you have to pull the work scope manage the contractors yet a lot of work but with using virtual assistance like you provide. That's actually pretty easy. It is once you get it set up and organized but you have to have that entire skill set understand listing and selling the property operate. That's the easy part right skillset behind. You is <hes> with over probably half the clients. You're gonna lay out the expenses. If you don't have the money to cover these properties the rehab the cash for keys utilities. I mean at one point on any given month at two humiliate of my own money floating right waiting to be reimbursed right skela large so it makes you these bankroll. That's one of the reasons why i think it's a lot better or sometimes it's the broker owner has the department right like a set up the utility accounts with on rather than deposits which is cheaper live intricacies to it but for an individual israel agent the best thing i could probably tell you go work for norio.
"reo" Discussed on Scale The Podcast
"Most agents the rule is you <unk> spending eighty percent of your time prospecting and twenty percent actually listing and selling right r._e._o. Is the exact opposite because when you prospecting door knock you cold quality looking for one seller who has one property to sell and then you gotta go find another one right right when he landed r._e._o. Client they have lots of properties to sell and they will keep giving you listings as long as you give do a good job right spend about ten to twenty percent of your time prospecting. I think an eighty percents working which way do you think is more profitable. I love it so it's the only renewable income strain in the industry from that respective active and they can actually build a business model on so once. I figured that out. That's where i was going also. When you control the large oreo inventory you tend to have the best price inventory in town because you can keep cutting prices no matter what the market's doing were regular homeowner can't because our amp perhaps shorts tale so we always have the best price inventory which means we have the best lead generation so you take the l and even though the department is very profitable if like a loss leader for lee jet eh feed the entire operation from it and retail business right so is your is your opinion that you would wanna run r._e._o. And retail business kind of in conjunction in a league another leg of your business is that correct -solutely about seventy five percent of our members on their own offices some of which are quite large an honestly. I spent more time teaching them about retail brokerage i do about r._e._o. At this point right is it was only about five percent. We started and you've mentioned previously. I was going to segue into that why it started the n._b._a. Was figured out. This business was scalable. You want and business you want it renewable when you want it scalable. While are you could be scaled when she put systems in place right. I mean i was doing when he pulled the head contracts i had i was doing about thirty thirty four hundred units a year with a staff of fourteen geez. It's a scalable business so i started teaching. Everybody else had to do it. We formed the group and the benefit to me is never really my livelihood but being the head of the largest group in the industry a lot for me so i've got no bitching about that whatsoever i was i wanted because that position to help a few other people on the way not a problem rayfield right so what's the difference in the for this piece of business the r._e._o. Business like who should think about it as an opportunity for one leg i was you know how i got started in r._e._o. Is i was an investor guy like my my leg of choice was helping people by investment properties and then those people just went away and then the market shifted. Did you have a unique perspective because you've been through dow six different shifts in the market which is just nuts so who in your opinion should consider r._e._o. As a leg of their business i was not for everybody from an if you're talking about an agent or broker..
The Rock N Play sleeper was recalled in the U.S. after 32 deaths
"If you've ever been a parent or taken care of an infant for any length of time, or even just had a baby in the same house, as you, you know, how much sleep matters. When will the baby sleep when will I sleep for how long please don't wake up yet, if this gets bad, and sometimes with kids it gets bad, you'll do anything for a few hours, which brings us to the Fisher Price rock and play sleeper. If there's a device out there that will get a child to sleep and help them stay that way. Then there are parents desperate enough to try it. And sometimes the unimaginable happens. Tonight. Parents warned to stop using the Fisher Price rock and play sleeper immediately. The move comes just days after a consumer reports investigation found at least thirty two deaths linked to the incline sleeper. That's why you can't buy be Rockin play sleeper anymore in the United States anyway here in Canada. It's called the Fisher Price Rockin play soothing seat. And yes, it's the same thing. I can buy this right now. I have an open order sitting on an online retailer right in front of me. Does a label change that much can a new name help parents use this product in a safer way? And look, I get that there are loopholes and regulations around products, but doesn't the term better safe than sorry come into play. At some point. Jordan. He throwing. And this is the big story Arielle Brewster is a senior editor at today's parent, high RAM and Claire ganja is the health editor at today's parent. Hello. Hello. REO. First of all, maybe can you just describe the rock and play, like what does it look like what does it do? It's sort of a waste high place to put your baby down not as far as best in it. It's not as seat like as a bouncer chair. It has mesh sides. It can fold up and sort of collapse into itself to go under a bed, your baby would sort of sit in, in a nestled position and I should mention there also safety straps to keep them in it. It could be used for naps. It could be used when you want to take a shower and drag it into the bathroom wanna unload, the dishwasher and to mobilize baby for a little while. Yeah. Just put them down without putting them on the floor and how. Do parents use it in general. I think it depends a lot of parents probably use it for Notts. They nursed their baby the baby falls asleep. You put them in the rock and play you go unload, the dishwasher. Some parents use it I leap. And that might be up or it might be for the whole night long, obviously with intervals breaks to feed the baby in the US the product was labeled as a sleeper and said, safer overnight sleep right on the box in Canada. It does not help popular are these things. Well, we know that four point seven million of them recalled anyways, so quite a few were sold. You know, when my first daughter was born didn't exist. So it's not something that I had its parent, but I had heard of it, you know, going through my parenting and a lot of parenting groups Facebook where they talk about sleep. It's called a lifesaver. It's something that many parents, sort of have come to rely on as a place where their kids might sleep for three hour stretch versus maybe twenty minute stretch. You know, they were getting in like a flat bassinet type environment. I do think they've been increasing in popularity even between having my first kid and second kid, I started seeing them out. They're more WalMart target when target was in Canada. They started doing designer collaborations as well. So you could not only get the basic rock and play, you could get a Jonathan Adler designed rock and play with special fabric or wouldn't accents. There were a lot of different options. Some of them were as low as like eighty dollars. It could go up to one twenty one seventy depending on how fancy however, for place for your baby to sleep like hundred twenty dollars is actually quite cheap. When you look at the other options out there, which I think, was part of the popularity as well, when, you know, you're only going to use it for a couple of months to be in your room, or when the baby's under three months, it's a seemed like a great option. I think you also saw it's sort of cult like status in the reactions that came out after it was recalled there were stories on how do we know maybe off the rock and play, you know. What are you gonna do? Now that, you know. So you kind of got a sense of how ingrained it had become in sort of an early parenthood news that product that everybody had that they relied on for their kids to sleep in. So this is a major recall in the parenting world done. It's fair to say. Why was it recalled consumer reports didn't investigation and they linked the rock and play to thirty two deaths in the United States to thirty two deaths since two thousand and nine this came out in stages. The consumer Product Safety Commission issued a joint warning with Fisher Price saying that parents should discontinue use of it. Once the infant has been able to start rolling over or is three months of age, and I think I was always in the, the guidelines on how to use the product, but they came up with a warning on April fifth, and then on April eighth consumer reports published a full investigation, and it became clear that they had been looking into it for a while. So they had, you know, interviewed doctors look debt, medical evidence. I think there were some lawsuits that had been launched from some of the families where the baby's head died, and they had been digging around, and they sort of said, hey, we have guidelines for safely, the guidelines are babies should be. Lying flat. Flat surface, there shouldn't be any anything that might cause them to suffocate nearby, like so, like, you know, no blankets in the crib, stuffy no pillows. These are all very long standing guidelines, the very clear and they're arguably doesn't meet those guidelines, so consumer reports seem to be saying, hey, we need to look at this product, we're linking it to these deaths Fisher Price at the time and still to my knowledge is saying that there was misuse of the product. So it was being used longer than the recommended time. So like pass three months or pass when it could roll over. Or maybe there was a digital batting put into the rock and play that shouldn't have been there. I don't think we know all those details at this point. But consumer reports basically was saying, hey, we've got thirty two kids who've died. Let's this product it was shortly after that, that they actually recall the product, how do babies die, and this thing he's at Suffolk Asian. Is it do we know we don't know all the details on that still? CPSC is focusing on rolling over so babies who they've Rishon age where they can turn themselves over, but they can't get themselves back into recession where they can start breathing. And so parents sometimes even know that they can roll over right? Like that didn't roll over yesterday. But the man product and now the they're rolling over. So that is also why it's like three months because three months would be sort of an age of that milestone where, you know, babies more more likely will be able to, to roll over that is one cause of death. There are indications that there could have been, you know, other contributing medical factors in some of the deaths that also needs to be looked at, but there's also something called positional, asphyxia succesion, and that is, is basically, it means you're suffocating based on your position. So the babies would have gotten themselves into -sition where their, their chins were sort of down on their chest, and it's cutting off the airway that is something that can happen in car siege. It can happen in a swing. It does. Happen. And I think it's under that would that they'll be looking at parents might be using it wrong or using it for longer than the intended time. But I mean, I'm I'm a parent and I understand that you do what works, but even for those who aren't parents are because you guys talk to millions of parents, give us a little bit of insight into the mind of apparent that is trying to use contraptions like this to get their kid to sleep share. I think I think let me posted our story. We got a lot of then they're done that moms who were very defensive or saying, you know, I suffered with sleep deprivation. That's just what being a parent is, basically buck up. And I thought that was pretty unfair because my sense, is that when you're using this device, it's because you don't have a good sleeper naturally, and we're not talking about parents who are leaving their kids in Iraq in play for eight or nine hours. And an assuming that early parenthood is a full night's sleep for the most part. I think it's parents who were hoping to get a two or three hour stretch instead of twenty or thirty minute stretch they didn't have. Unreasonable expectations they'd tried bouncing on a yoga ball for one hour. Two hours than gently putting the baby in the bassinet. They'd tried pre warming the best in it with them microwaveable bean. Bet you know, they'd done everything every white noise machine lullaby and the only way they're babies slept longer than thirty minutes was in the rock and play. And that bought them, maybe three or four hours, and that is considered a huge victory when you have a young, baby. So I, I don't think we should think these are negligent, parents, these are parents were actually trying everything, and they're extremely sleep-deprived because what happens to all those cases is start maybe making other decisions that aren't that safe fall asleep with the baby on a coach or just in Iraq. And so parents who are deciding to use products to help the rape sleep or not necessarily taking shortcut or they've actually spent a lot of time, weighing all the risks and benefits and they know that they're not functioning properly southern. Making a choice. I think maybe is safer here in this thing, then with me at this time, so now we get to the risks and benefits, part this product is still available in Canada. Correct. So the product is available in Canada, but it's not called a rock in place, leaper. That is what it's called in the United States in Canada. It's called a rock in place, soothing seat. And so the pictures on the box, and the wording and everything, sort of, implies that it's, you know, for that I use that are was talking about before, where you maybe need to the dishwasher, and you put your happy baby next to you, and they might talk to them a little bit while you're you're doing it, but they're just sitting in it. Sure. I mean that's not reality, especially with a newborn, they newborn sleep for a lot of the day and, and night, maybe not a night. But if you have a baby, that's, that's napping. Those chances are it's going to it might sleep, even though that's what it's called in Canada. It is the same product so a baby might fall asleep in the product in the. United States just as they might fall asleep in the product in Canada. The reason is still for sale here. Is that Health Canada had concerns about it, but they brought their concerns in two thousand eleven when Mattel brought the product to Canada, they said, whoa, they're calling this a sleeper, and it doesn't meet any of our requirements for safe sleep environment? We actually have regulations here. They're called the cribs cradles bass nets regulations and they sort of outlined, what a product that's going to be sold here for that purpose needs to look like you know, probably has to be a certain size. And the one thing that definitely needs to be as flat. This product is not flat. It wasn't until they changed the name of the product and all the labeling to call soothing seat that it was even allowed to be sold here. How different are the actual to products. We did try to find out the best. We could if there were any designed differences. We don't think there are we everyone talks about them, as though they are the same product. We. We asked Mattel, if there are any designed differences, they did not respond to that part of the question they referred to the labelling differences. So we're assuming they are the same product. I can tell you about to about one in the US. My parents are American had it shipped to their house because there's more variety. I was shopping around for a different design, and I got one that I liked better while shopping online in the US smuggled it in and I also I think I got one from an event here in Toronto. I did not notice different labelling on the box. Did I look that closely? I'm not sure if said, soothing C N, one said, sleeper, I can tell you I use both had one upstairs and went downstairs, and to me they were the exact same product just different colors was a bunny was a lamb. Talked to Canadian parents about this. They use it differently. No, they do not. They use the exact same way in American parent would use it. I wanted to add that a lot of parents who use the product have babies who have something called reflex, which is not just spit up. It's a baby who always pukes allot after feet and you're instructed to keep them upright for like thirty minutes after feed. This is actually quite difficult. If you have a baby, who falls asleep while nursing falls asleep, while taking a bottle, and then you're supposed to keep this asleep. Newborn, upright, somehow waking them the rock and play really to me solve that problem. And that's actually why I got it for my second kid. My first kid was super bar fee. It was a nightmare. I thought, oh here's what I needed some way to keep him upright. Without waking him, put them in there to sleep. Definitely and other parents, you talked to in Canada, the same thing. Yes. I mostly did it for naps. I'll admit I never did it for overnight. Because his reflects never seemed as bad, then but I can see. If it's working during the day logically, you would think why not do it at night as well. What do doctors in Canada? Think about the fact that this is available here after it's been recalled.

Dr Ben was doing something called psychological projection with that statement. I'm no neurosurgeon. I didn't even go to college. I, graduated from night schooling nineteen ninety eight and my graduating class was supposed to be nineteen ninety six that tells you all you need to know about me. All right. But psychological projection of the defense mechanism in which the human ego defended self against unconscious, impulses or quality. So I think Dr been has an unconscious impulse to defend himself when he hits the word REO because he has been called one so much in his life. Okay. In Moryo in REO, the black person who acts white, you know, black on the outside white on the inside. I don't like that term because black, people are not monolithic, and there's no way to act black.

Kenneth Branagh talks 'All Is True'
"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell. You. What's happening at the movies? And we have a movie now called all is true. It is the story of William Shakespeare in his later years. It stars my friend here Kenneth Branagh who also directed it. And did God knows what else, you know? Can I think it's kind of amazing? We were talking a little bit before about when I first encountered you which was you playing a Henry the fifth onscreen, which he directed as well as started Oscar nominations for both things. This was a Henry who was just filled with youth and vigor and was going to take on the world and everything and it was. This fresh vigorous approach to what Shakespeare is. And now, you're playing Shakespeare himself in his later years has that make you feel on usual. Unusual very privileged. Because the in a way, you know, Henry the fifth was a it was an amazing opportunity to have as a young actor, and a sort of virgin filmmaker and really was any possible because there were lots of other equally sorts of adventurous maverick figures in terms of the produces and an all sorts of other people who were taking a chance on me. I remember talking to the late. Great psalm. Go when junior when we were releasing that film in America saying cannot, please please, please. I I know I'm I'm I'm twenty I'm nobody another, but complete can I make two requests on the post police. Could you include two names, one is Judi Dench who I promise you people will know about sued they will know about and the other one pleases William Shakespeare, without whom none of us would be here. Why credit the writer well, just different additional dialogue anyway. But it was he was just too concerned about what was going. To get people into the side. No problem listening to a smart, man. He news who knew his market. But I suppose the send if things I keep sort of saying the same thank yous to people like Judy Dench shoop stuck with me through a journey through shakes. Things have you done with her? I mean we worked about together by seven times. And she's directed me. A couple of times and I've directed her. I've always learned from her and a couple of years ago, we did Shakespeare's play the winter's tale, which was really a prelude to making this film. All is true because she played Pauline a- a woman who speaks truth to power, and she puts my character in that play on a man who makes stupid mistake and loses a child as a result. She puts into the test puts into the sold, and that sort of ten ship became a starting point for Ben Elton thinking about how might Anne Hathaway and William Shakespeare's relation be after twenty years of him being away as the most famous of the agent and coming back to face the family. That's the the whole crux of the story. He's got this wife who he basically has neglected. Fully and two daughters and a dead son memories dealing with. But I always here we know nothing about what really happened in terms of what was going on and Shakespeare's life. So how does this come about that you get to play him at in sixteen thirteen when he's basically retired after the old gulp Peter burns down. He's going on. Well, belts looked at the existing facts factual as we knew them that appear in the Public Record Office. And so you'll find that on on a day in June of sixteen fourteen Joan lane stood up in the church. Holy trinity church in Stratford, and he called Shakespeare's daughter a whore. And he said she had gonna RIA and that she was sleeping with the a man who was not her husband. This is in public record quite clear. Everybody knew about it created a sensation because Shakespeare was returning celebrity and in the case of of someone so creatively prolific to come back to a tiny town. And a long way from London, and and after thirty seven plays in a great success workout, what to do even let alone what to say to a wife and daughters, who as you say been neglected, and who have if you think of in terms of the plays that he wrote we're to have plenty to say about what he might or might not have done or said in his terms. He's gonna he's gonna come to terms with how that sits, you know, the the this idea of what it's like for genius to deal with old and rely was also in the in the core of what we were trying to look at Ben Elton who did this works on in a very humorous way. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yeah. But that's it. He's coming up and people are saying who the hell are you, you know. And I think what again one of the fascinating about Shakespeare's. How elusive he is. You know, there are probably about twenty five about him in the public record of his places. He was things that happened during the course of his life, but many people find it hard to join the. The idea of the fellow we present who may not have gone to drama school comes from a relatively lower class and REO in small country town and goes off into the world and can write plays about Rome and Egypt. And and it's Lee, and and and politics and religion and do so without having had the classical education without being as whether classical idea of genius, lured by remand bad and dangerous to know living glamorous life of public scandal. That sound great. I'd buy some of that. But Shakespeare seems to go pups, you know, exemplify what flow BAC, hold when he described the autistic life and said, you need to be boys watering, your private life and revolutionary in your creative life, and you might argue that about Shakespeare, but but that that that's sort of contradiction tension between the ordinary man and the man capable of extrordinary creative output to me you so touching so point. So Shakespeare because he he often in his own. Own place. He pulls the rug from under the feet of grandiloquent people saying, you know, what? In the end, you're all going to need company. You're going to need help at the end of your life. You're all going to require a you're all you need a support that comes from very simple contact with human beings. It isn't all about being some grand Queen or king. Even if he writes, very well about them his genius. I think he's writing about the nitty gritty in love, isn't it? Yeah. It's kind of amazing that in terms of film television. Whatever we don't really get that much of him. We really don't. So you I'm watching this. And I'm thinking, okay. Here's the he's coming home that heroes coming on, and nobody really wants them. Yes. Everybody's white says really, you know. And also that they were illiterate, basically, women just weren't taught obsoleted. So so a lot Benneton I think to give a modern voice in the film to women who. Had not been listened to. And it didn't matter to them that father, even then was lauded as the as the poet of the age, his, you know, clear and present responsibility as a parent, and as a husband with something that they they challenge, and and they challenge indeed as most families experience, even with the most high-achieving mother or father out there in the world being spectacular comeback to your own, you know, kitchen table, and you're just a member of that family and people are are unimpressed in the tension. That accrues is important one of the things I admire about Shakespeare is that he does come back to stop. But he does he does. He does fess up. You know, he he they stay married, and we investigate and explore the idea of what what it meant when this is true in in Shakespeare's will he left his wife? His second best bed and many people. Regard this great slight or a snob or in front. We take a different view that might have that might actually be a layer of meaning in that that suggest Papp's. It's a it's more than a friendly. Gesture might even be a loving gesture. The title was originally

If you have this you could just hit record and get behind that camera and start shooting your video. Of course, you can edit out all that transition at the start at the end when you're starting the video when you're ending the video and make sure you pause before, sir. Talking face up the camera, and you pause to allow that to happen. And then you start, you know, going into your script, we're going into your video content. So tripod is essential. It's going to take your camera phone to the next level tool. Number three, a long charging cable. You don't wanna worry about your phone dying out on you when you're doing shoot? Usually if you're doing videos, your batching, you're doing a few videos in a row, and when you're used your camera I special video camera on your smartphone. It's gonna take a lot of juice. So you wanna make sure that your phone is doing totally fine juice, and that you actually plug it into a power source, whether it's your laptop or whether it's into the wall unit right into the action, Allah, and you can get a long. Extension to whatever you used to charge your phone. Whether it's a lightening cable with a iphone or USB, cable, whatever it is whatever cable used to play into a charger are USB port. So you can plug it in. So it's getting power. This is going to allow you to kind of relax and be headache free, and you can take as many takes as you like with your your camera phone. This is actually better than having a DSL are because he s LARs run on batteries that need to be recharged. And you can run out of battery another option if you have a place to place, this is a power Bank. If you don't want to go and get a longer charging cable, you have power Bank laying around that will give you extra juice for your phone. You can plug in the power Bank that way your phone is got that extra battery power all right tool. Number four is a background you want a solid background as much as possible. So this could be a plane wall in a spare bedroom in your office. In the conference room. Now, you can make that plane while look a little bit better with a bit of paper, you go to craft store, and you get a wide sheet of paper something that's maybe a couple yards or maybe even longer three or four yards and just basically tape that paper to the actual wall. And it becomes where you stand in front of who do this are video shoot area. And we use some blue paper and blue is the Brandon color for women are ninjas. So you can think about your own brand colors. This paper's gonna cost had a whole lot more production value to your videos and for the viewer. It's gonna look like you're in a video studio. All right tool number five, and that's audio an external mic, you're gonna to record REO in a clean way. The audio that you're going to be picking up from your iphone or from your smartphone is just going to be to muffled is going to be too far away from the actual Cameron actual, Mike. So ideally, you want to get some sort of. Boom mic oral appel, Mike, and this Mike has to be plugged into some sort of audio recorder. Now trust me, this is probably one of your biggest investments. He's so worth it. Because your audio is going to be clean. It's going to sound amazing. Real like Sennheiser boom mic. Basically do set it up on a boom arm and you set it up high enough. So it's outside the frame of the camera to the mic doesn't show up in the shot, but it's pointing towards you.
First-party Switch games are setting new attach rate records for Nintendo
"You wanna talk about first party game attach rates, incredibly interesting. We've got some really cool numbers very late last night at three AM Japan time. First of all hardware shipments worldwide. Sorry, I was looking at my phone. I was pulling those up in Japan. We've seen seven point seven million switch units twelve point nine million in the Americas and eleven million and other now for that attach rates, and what that means basically is how many people who own a switch bought these games the best selling game on switch by a pretty big margin. Is Mario Kart eight a last gen port. So hurry forty seven percent of switch owners own that game. So basically roughly one and two minus a couple of people who were like, no, I have it already forty-three percent own. Mario odyssey. Thirty seven percent owned smash limit which is huge because that game is less than two months old at this point right under that thirty-six percent owned breath of the walls. So how how is only thirty six percent owning breath of the wild reaction that game. Like, it's the best launch game of all time. Right. How you bought a system on on launch day and didn't pick up breath a wild while a theory. No, I'll tell you what it is a lot of people bought switches after the launch win shirt there's came in. They didn't buy it breath of the while they bought it from REO cart. They bought it over to superior odyssey. Yeah. And I think probably dummies top of that they're probably a lot of people who bought breath of the wild on. We you not that. There are a lot of people who own we use in general just probably Papa while on you. Skip the launch window bodice which later and didn't need it again. Yep. You think a lot of people brought breath of the wild only you. Yeah. I think so I think so anymore already more than you already owned twelve point five million people voted on we you. I mean, if you already owned a we who and weren't desperate for a switch and the only game you wanted to play breath awhile. There's no need for you to get a switch for that. There were no other launch titles that really I mean, what were you going to switch for one to switch. Now the game. No one talks about anymore. It's never any of these lists. Although it sold a million at launch, right? Other than that. The only games come on. Let's go to thirty one percent of all switch owners on that game. And twenty six percent owns platoon to which is basically wanted. Four and the numbers keep doing anything. After that. I believe it's like tropical freeze in a couple of others. Keep going from that we know that they just said that they sold thirty two million seventy two million.

The Dirty Little Secret Of Non-Performing Notes
"I want. To know what investors generally overlook To win looking at NPL's but if you can give me a little bit of a breakdown of what an n. p. l. is when a nonperforming note is that would be helpful and then we. Can talk a little bit about what's overlooked Certainly so many banks now that volume to the dwindled and are. No longer cranking from firehoses have restructured how they market. Either REO assets or pre foreclosure assets and marketing a pre foreclosure assets has become much more popular meaning somebody's, defaulted they're over forty five days delinquent and typically closer to a year delinquent by the. Time they go into an MP l. sale so, the banks will bundle those in. Many instances and sell them to an investor who thinks that on average they can. Make fifty to sixty percent of those loans reform through some sort of modification so to have an appetite for not, performing loans there's a legal component to it. There's a financial analysis based on unpaid balanced versus what the property values should be and then you have to consider all this position strategies be modding the loan doing cash for keys in the victim taking the property In. And and allowing the person to become a renter as opposed to the owner occupant and then also taking the property and flipping if that becomes an exit strategy so. NPR's are really popular I think that more and more investors want, to do them the hardest part is gonna find banks and services that. Are interested in selling them as one offs so there's. Still a lot of mystery there you gotta find some folks that have deep pockets that will aggregate those portfolios, and Ben separate them down and sell them individually so you can't just go to an. Individual seller and say hey you know John or, Sally or Susan Zalmi your note. And it doesn't matter if it's performing I'm sure there is a much better way. To do that do you have any any acquisition strategies behind that or is it just relationship driven and you gotta, know some banks You. Know it it's not like that anymore and there are organizations out there that have aggregated groups of. Note buyers so they have their own built-in. Portfolios it's almost like a club people come to Expos and trade notes with each other by portfolio sell portfolios it's a real. Easy game to get into provided you find some of the, more, reputable places, to start prices like Eddie speeds note school. Or no expo there's lots and lots. Of resources out there for people who want to get into. The game and don't really understand how the prophet will work for them but are very interested in trying it out Totally. Agreed huge fan of huge fan of notes what's the one way maybe one or two or three ways to avoid getting taken advantage of in that world, because it's definitely a very tough world sometimes It is honestly the underlying note regardless of your disposition strategy? Is fairly inconsequential provided you've measured at. Least two things and? Even just to the hypothetical how likely are you to modify the note and how badly damaged is the property to where your versus Physician is no and provided you built yourself the margin there on both sides you can take anyway
