Larry Elder Talks About the 'Uncle Tom' Documentaries
"Uncle Tom is all about the struggle of black conservatives throughout America from the time of slavery until right now that people like look at T Washington have always believed in hard work, accountability and becoming excellent. And his argument was that even in the face of racism, if you learn a skill, a job, a trade, as well as or better than somebody else, you will be rewarded because people want the best. They want cheap. They want good quality. They want things that work. When I was a kid, I used to spend summers, my moms ranch. And my mom, mom, farm, rather. My mom told me there was a black man who couldn't read or write, who was the best chimney maker in the south. And the way of determining a good chimney maker is somebody that does not order too many bricks because if you order too many, the guy that's ordering them has to pay for them and to make sure that Jimmy does not smoke. It's not leak. And she said he was always employed by all these white people that wouldn't invite him in for tea, but they'd invite him to their chimney because he was the best. And so there have been many examples of that. We explore that in Uncle Tom one about people that worked hard to learn the skills and learn trade even in the face of tremendous racism and Jim Crow still managed to succeed and to overcome. And then we talk about how this attitude has now been changed by these people like Jesse Jackson and Al sharpton and Patrice colors, the cofounder of Black Lives Matter, essentially telling black people that you're victims. Always victims. Eternal victims, if victims of systemic racism, enduring racism, foundational racism, to the point where it's changed the attitude of a lot of black people and the worst work ethic of a lot of black people and more importantly the family structure. With the welfare state, as I said, a million times, we've encouraged women to marry the government and we've encouraged men to abandon their financial and more responsibility. And now we have not a scandal, but a scandal and a crisis, Brandon, 85% of black 8th graders are neither mass nor reading proficient. 85%, that means 85% of black 8th graders are functionally illiterate. And the NAACP just had their annual convention and what are they talking about? Reproductive rights, voting rights, student debt, and police brutality. That's their agenda. And so if long as our so called black leaders are focusing on the wrong thing, the solution will forever be elusive.

Wall Street Observer Brandon Gill Joins Dinesh to Talk 'Woke Activism'
"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast my son in law, Brandon Gil, Brandon's the founder of D.C. inquirer dot com. By the way, if you haven't seen a D.C. inquirer UI RER dot com, it's a quickly growing conservative news out outlet. He's originally a rancher from West Texas, a graduate of Dartmouth. That's where he met Danielle, my daughter, and he's a former Wall Street analyst who can follow his political commentary and follow him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, also get her true social. He's at real Brandon Gil. Hey Brandon, good to see you. Thanks for coming on the podcast. I thought I talked to you a little bit about Wall Street. You've been an insider and an observer. Of Wall Street. And you were telling me about a kind of new activism that's emerging on Wall Street. Allied with the left, it's a kind of almost awoke wall streetism. Talk a little bit about what are some of the signs of that. And then we can talk about how it became that way. All right, well, first of all, thanks for having me on the show, dinesh. Always good to talk to you. As you mentioned, I grew up on a cattle ranch in West Texas. And I had always kind of been intrigued by Wall Street. It's an area where there's a certain sort of sort of meritocratic purity to investing, or at least what I thought was how the investing world worked. Typically, you think of investing as you analyze a company, you analyze its fundamental business prospects, you estimate its future cash flow. And then come up with what you think that means that stock or business should be trading at currently. Once I got to Wall Street, I found this sort of new investing framework that was starting to really gain steam. You hear people talking in the news or in investing communities about things like DE and I diversity equity and inclusion or ESG, which stands for environmental social governance. And these are sort of extra economic criteria that investment firms or asset managers will think about when analyzing what companies they should invest
Texans: Government Needs to Recognize an Invasion by Illegals
"I want to thank all of these sheriffs, all these judges and all these local politicians. I really want to thank people for hosting this and want to thank you for your courage because what they're doing right here. Is doing what the attorney general of Arizona did and what the attorney general of Texas needs to do. Which is recognize an invasion, an invasion of the state of Texas that is undermining our security, risking the health and well-being of Texans, allowing fentanyl to pour into our schools and communities for Texans to die, allow our ranches to get run over, empowering cartels who are well armed along the border with their tentacles reaching into Texas, you damn right, that's an invasion. What else do you call it? You want to sit back and hand ring and sit around and wrap yourselves around the axle about a definition of invasion when the people of Texas are experiencing invasion. And the whole point here, why we're here is that these individuals have the courage to stand up and say it. Formally, to formally declare what is true that we are being invaded. The language of the statement that they put out, that is a matter of law, the aforementioned facts which they outlined outlined, constituted my brother things and invasion of Kinney county, Texas, as the term invasion is used in article four, section four of the United States Constitution article four section 7 of the Texas constitution.

Todd Starnes' Field Trip to the Reagan Ranch

It was Hollywood. And they brought, you know, Ronald Reagan campaigned on this idea of wanting to make America great again. That was the actual slogan of his presidential campaign. Isn't that funny? Make America great again. So I get up there and I was thinking my mind, this is going to be like the ponderosa from bonanza, grace, I know you don't know what I'm talking about. Sorry. It goes right over there. But folks Google it. And teach your children, grace, we're working on that. We're educating you. You're getting an education.

And there was this sort of, I wouldn't say decrepit house, but it was really old. It was painted. It looked nice, but it wasn't anything glamorous. And you walk in and there's old furniture. It sparsely, you know, there's not a lot of furniture. There's a bed where this is where Reagan lived when he was back in California. There was a bed and your Reagan was the bed was small, and so they had to put like a nightstand at the end of the bed so Reagan's feet wouldn't dangle off the bed. My pillow didn't even exist. There was no my pillow there. And it was a very simple, it was a very straightforward ranch. There was folks, there was really not much to it. There was no glitz, no glamour. Very humble. Very humble abode. Very nice, clean. I mean, it was very, very pretty. I mean, the setting. And I was really struck by that.

Cattle Ranchers May Have Been Responsible for Cattle Deaths
"I was incorrect and did not have the full information about the cattle that had passed away in Kansas. The story has reported how the story is being reported that there was at least 10,000 cattle that had passed away due to a heat wave. Now, in my mind, because I have zero adequate knowledge around cattle ranching, and also I have skepticism that's a mile long when it comes to our government and I'm slightly a conspiracy theorist. I believe that there could have been a nefarious cause to the cattle losing their lives. However, because of great people like you guys that listen to the show, there were two people that called me that there are a couple. They called me, they listened to my show on YouTube, and they said, hey, Brandon, can we talk to you? We want to give you some better information about the cattle out there in southwest Kansas. And I said, let's do it. They called me on the phone, and this is what they told me. That the death of the 10,000 cattle is not abnormal. If you a cattle rancher, it's not abnormal for a heat wave to cause this level of death. And the significant points that I took from the conversation that I had with them is that little do you know many of us, how many cattle are actually out there? From the information that they told me that there was, there could be anywhere from a half a million cattle and what they call feet lots.

Kim Is Definitely Winning the Early Rounds With Kanye
"Well, Kim has definitely won the early rounds with Kanye, you know, Kanye wearing the make America great again Red Hat and public hugging Donald Trump at The White House, much to the disdain of her and her lefty friends and family. You can't wear the Red Hat and hug the president in his White House. Oh my God. Especially if you're black, can't do it. And Kim knows what black guys can and can not do after all that's all she's been with. So our sisters have been with us up for Courtney, even her mom. Well, there was her dad, but other than that, it's a parade of black men. Most of whom are fuck ups. Let's face it. Yet they still go back to them. They still go back to the well. I don't know. That's a whole different show. But Kanye then ran a horrifyingly bad campaign for president, then he was out on his ranch in Wyoming and clearly off his meds and maybe on other meds that are more recreational. If you know what I mean, then Kim starred in silent night live to the delight of her hundreds of millions of followers on social media. She kissed Pete Davidson in an Aladdin sketch and never did any one of us think that that stupid little kiss would develop into a full blown cross country love affair. I remember seeing that kiss in front of the green screen and I thought, oh God, she had to hate that. I mean, I can tell he smells he reeks of marijuana or cigarette smoke doesn't bathe right. He looks like my ass, 1100 tattoos. He's an asshole. Socks with sandals. I've talked about him incessantly. So I thought, oh, she must have hated that. When you look at how everything in her life is so like clean and sparse and put together well and a guy like that blown into her life must be like when you're driving along the highway and it plastic bag kicks up and sticks to the front of your Rolls Royce.
Harriet Hageman States Her Case to Represent Wyoming in Congress
"Because you've got to sell yourself on why you would be best for the constituents of Wyoming, or is our Liz Cheney's actions enough to have her get defeated? Mike, you know, that's a really good question. And you're the first person to ask it, but it's something that I address every single day, both with my team as well as internally in my own head. And the reason I say that is because you do have to have that balance. And what I often say to people is that I'm not just running against Liz Cheney, I am running four Wyoming. I am a lifelong Wyoming height. I'm fourth generation, my great grandfather came to Wyoming on a cattle trail in 1879. I come from a ranch. I have a lot of family members here. I went to Casper college on a livestock judging scholarship in the 1980s, then went to the university of Wyoming and graduated with both my bachelor's and my law degree. I have the credentials and the experience and the knowledge to be ineffective congresswoman. It's just that simple.

Black Lives Matter Suspends Online Fundraising
"Questions have also been raised up what's going on at the top of BLM G and F and nobody knows there's no one in charge. It's a slush fund. It's a shell. It's a mystery. The organization is not appear to have a chief executive officer for over a year. According to the Washington examiner, which did great work on this, former CEO Patrice color stepped down in May of 2021, following criticisms of her personal finances she went on a shopping spree. She bought homes across the planet. Literally, Canada everywhere. This appears, they gave all these different excuses, but then this one gets even more interesting. BLM gnf has now off the suspend its online fundraising operations, tens of millions of dollars were also certainly raised during a period when the organization had no leadership team. And then of course, were the houses, spike dot com writes. Again, this is a terrific piece. One of the main reasons caller stepped down was due to the controversy over her real estate buying binge, which she purchased four homes valued at $3.2 million. Colors signed off on the deeds for a house in Inglewood, California worth half a $1 million, a custom ranch property located in rural Georgia, which was equipped with an airplane runway. And at $1.4 million mansion in ritzy topanga, canyon, a short drive from Malibu. You think all of this would make people want to know what happened to the billions pledged to BLM or the millions given to BLM G and F, but nope, the media doesn't care at all. Why would they be bothered by such things?
Why Do Southern Border Crossers Want To Get Caught?
"So why are they shutting the IDs and shedding the clothes in a drop zone before they cross the border? And here was one of the most eye opening admissions from border patrol. They said, in the Yuma sector, which went from 50 people crossing to a thousand people crossing. They said, they want to be caught now unless you are trafficking guns or trafficking drugs, which those people have different sectors they go through in different times of day and separate agreements. They usually go through private ranches or they go through Native American reservations. But the people that are coming through Yuma in particular, they want to be caught. You might say that doesn't make any sense what Charlie, why would they want to be caught? Well, so in basic economics, you learn about supply and demand. When you have a regime and administration such as the Biden administration, that has admitted they are not going to deport people that come into the country. They're going to process their paperwork and give them a court date they'll never show up to. Well, that increases all of a sudden the demand to want to come to America. So Yuma in particular is known as the sector where many people can go across and get expedited entry into the United States. Why? Well, it's near mexicali. It is near several Mexican towns that you can access through, plain, you can access through bus. You can access through a lot of different ways. To give you an idea of how complicit the Mexican government is, the Mexican government has helped triple the amount of state sponsored buses that go from Mexico City to Mexico. They know who's going on those buses. And I'm going to tell you why the Mexican government likes illegal immigration. Later in this program. But they want to be caught. So they drop their IDs for a very specific purpose. Because if you are not able to pinpoint country of origin, then all of a sudden, it creates this whole other bureaucratic nightmare to try to deport that individual.
Rising Star Rep. Kat Cammack of Florida Shares Her Origin Story
"Then, you've had a really interesting story that I think brings is why McCarthy scalise other members I've talked to when I asked them drew Ferguson when I asked him I said, who's some of the ones right now that are making a difference? Your name keeps coming up as a rising star. And I'm not surprised by that, but it's interesting. But I think a lot of it is your background. Tell the people on this podcast, because, you know, who might be getting a first look at you, sort of your background. I don't know if you've had one of the easiest of upbringings. And so give us a little bit of sense of that as we get into the podcast today. Yeah, no, well, and that's really kind of them to mention me. We'll see how things go, but no, I think coming into this Congress, the 117th, I brought a little bit of a different perspective. I am certainly not your traditional candidate or congresswoman. I grew up daughter of a single mom and I grew up on a small cattle ranch and my family, we were commercial sandblasters. That's not exactly the sexiest industry in the world. And when you grow up on a job sites and you're in the world of construction, politics really isn't front of mine, except for when it's interfering in your life. So I grew up in a household of Democrats and really I think through that experience of and we weren't politically active or anything. My mom, she voted, and then when I registered to vote, I actually registered as an independent because I had always been raised. You vote for the person, not the party. And growing up on all these job sites in this industry, we saw department of environmental protection. We saw the ocean inspectors. We saw the Department of Labor. And I started out, I took my first steps on the job site. And so I was naturally being conditioned to really despise government and government interference because every time I saw one of these bureaucrats show up at our business, it was never good. And it was never

I was surprised that all the different types of equipment that we have to fight these these type of fires so i didn't realize we we can talk about one day about the technology. That's used for firefighting no of course but irish bombs yeah. We have forty one families. He's that don't have a home right now. So it was <hes> <hes> it was kind of a tough day for our community again. He on mendham bismarck has been thrown wrong quite a few of these types of scenarios last you know so. It's been a tough year round here thrown for a loop we have. We have so anyway <hes> there's a fun that has been set up. We've had a an outpouring of venetians <hes> which has been fantastic <hes> comfort in and the blackstone hotel here imagined and then have been given residents <hes> see to these families and donations are coming in there. I don't know i didn't get a chance to be further ado show to check to see. I know we've had they've had so many donations that it's even difficult to <hes> handle all of them. It's a good problem to have. It is a problem so maybe before you go. If you think about donating something before he do that. Let us get the word out on what is needed right. You know i know that <hes> children's enclose and diapers are so important yeah <hes> and then if you but if you wanna just make a donation food canned goods so i think that's a good question you know. They don't have anything to go on right now really so it's probably going to be mostly restaurants for the next couple of days until they get situated <hes> but you know there's been some gift cards that have been given them to utilize some restaurants step forward to help out as well <hes> you know and of course we have to be a good neighbor program <hes> which really we stepped up yesterday to <hes> and if you wanna make just make a donation you can do that too and he's com salutes. We can just go. I i see that you put a link up on super. Talk twelve took a your statement agent all your facebook page and basically cut and paste it and did a little editing okay that has all the information there and we put it on our websites. It'd be there at super talk twelve seventy dot com yep and then we also just put the link now at man. Dan parade dot com.
"ranch " Discussed on The Tech Ranch
"The things that we have talked about in the past on the show but we'll get in a little bit into a little bit about what's possible with these things so <hes> the first one on the list is Iot or the Internet of things so the Internet only have not before. We've talked about it a lot. You know so the Internet of things is basically connecting things other than computers and tablets and cellphones owns to the Internet and I guess you could even talk about you can even say that tablets and cellphones are were the beginning of the Internet of things because we used to have just a cellphone right and now most people wouldn't even know what to do with that device vice they carry around with them and connected to the Internet. I Oh gee I call it the I._O._S.. Internet stuff all or sometimes stuff. I use the other word that's interesting yeah. <hes> yeah <hes> so anyway so you you have things like you know like right. Now I have light bulbs that are connected to Wi fi right and in the course they turn on and off when you want them to and and they're in the clapper all yeah yeah they turn on when it gets dark go off when he gets light outside. Did you can program turn on when your cell phone gets to a certain point. Why are you laughing about the clapper? <hes> the clever did you have one of those. Nope never did what was the movie where that was in one of those naked gun movies vs where Saddam Hussein they broke into his house. Okay is native and lying in bed in the he went. Oh that's right. That was funny. That's not the one I'm thinking of. Though was the couple that bought like Oh who was in that movie <music> anyway. There's this older lady that lived upstairs yeah and she would have her TV plan so loud so they broke into her house and put a clap Ron us with it he could win. He would play downstairs and clap and turn it off right after she fell asleep. I saw comedy bit one. It was one of these is a parody of <hes> science fiction spy things where this the spy or he was a detective or something and he had a sidekick who is a female android over it was the actual woman playing the Android <hes> but she was activated and deactivated by clapping clapper wired were dogging somehow that is hilarious yeah the comedic possibilities in Su. Are you have to share that tattle with me so time I I love to watch that yeah <hes> but anyways so the Internet of things is something you have to think about in the business realm where this could take you. I mean what are the possibilities here <hes> and you know like lightbulbs. I'm I know of toasters that are being developed developed now the that are online and you can actually download things so that you that you could like <hes> toast Mickey Mouse on the side of your bread or things that I'm convinced that toasters already have intelligence of their own they I do actually not entirely benevolent no no if they if they know that you don't if that you don't like burnt toast they will figure that out and they will burn your toast every time they just saying they just basically what they wanted the cats of the yard that's really good. I like that so yeah. It'd be looking for the Internet of things and think about in your business. You know maybe ways that you can leverage things so one thing with with Iot is <hes> a place and and there's two of them actually <hes> but when I use mostly called if I f t t t if this then that and this is where the Internet of things really gets interesting so if my cell phone gets to a certain G._P._S. coordinate and it's dark outside side than my garage lights turn on now very if I post something or if if somebody posts something about National Day calendar on twitter then the this lightbulb will blink where you already I have that that's why I'm bringing that up nuts. I'll be right next to my desk flicker. Why why why I know it blinks a lot here but those are the things that you can do with with the Internet of things and I think as we move forward in this realm? You'll I mean what things are going to be connected or. Maybe the better question is what things are not going to be connected as your cars are going to be connected they already are actually if you have a new one. <hes> you know almost every major appliance that you can buy for your home right. <hes> has connectivity options already <hes> so you just don't know what opportunities lie out there when it comes to this <hes> next one on the list is artificial intelligence <hes> a I which. this kind of what most people think i have i'm just saying because it's not learned right it's a little plug i have in the back of my neck and i put a nasty card in their matrix that's right so artificial intelligence <hes> we'll have impacts across all industries from retail healthcare hospitality to finance and finances where i really find this interesting they they claim in like nine or ten years what ninety percent of all counts will not have jobs the i've heard that because our there's just way yeah 'cause have you i don't know how you do your taxes <hes> but i last year the year before i guess i had somebody do my last year again but i was my wife does ours and she uses one of those online because that's that's exactly right i love them and they're not bad that's exactly where i was going jail these online services it's powered by and they keep them in the cloud so if you ever have to go back if you get an audit or what i guess right there but as you're going through your taxes is which is a complicated complicated nowadays and a._i. makes it really pretty simple because it'll you'll punch numbers in and they'll make suggestions about where you need to go next and all this other stuff right so it's really interesting and artificial intelligence audience is more than just that just seen a commercial this morning <hes> from microsoft about artificial intelligence yeah <hes> working with beer companies <hes> and you know using artificial intelligence to us to take their showing they used take seven years to make a batch of beer <hes> to determine the link though it take to determine if the beer was a good beer and all this other stuff that they can figure out in seconds while because of artificial intelligence so <hes> it's really interesting and to see what is possible and i think there's a lot of opportunity as we move forward <hes> to use artificial intelligence in ways that aren't even thought of the and pretty pretty easy things why won't they easy things to do but there are some you know to get into artifice artificial intelligence there's actually a lot of things like a._p. is that you caring in <hes> that you can start playing with this stuff to see if there's some implications to your business or what have you so you can get into the stuff relatively low cost i yeah i really see it like you know if your bank or whatever you you probably need to be looking at this pretty hard but one of the obvious things to me is health care yes and that brings the question in the long run will make healthcare more or less expensive that's obviously a major thing you talk cabal well i think artificial intelligence will reduce costs long run i think yeah yeah sure run maybe not so much because there's a lot of investment yeah no but i will say you know i haven't you know knocking would but i have fortunately compared to most people my age i've been in relatively good health yeah you know <hes> yep and it's just been recently that i've had to start doing a little doctoring and i'm impressed with the the ability yeah i had blood work done three weeks ago and from the time i left to have had my blood drawn to time it took for me to get to my office i already had my results yeah that that i was i was blown away by a lot of stuff a lot of tests they do that <hes> the turnover as much fast it's just incredible and you know the ability to have results like that so quickly <hes> can really you know i won't say put your mind at ease because if you have some issue going on and it verifies this issue but even if in verifies this issue you can act on it yeah with at least some knowledge about what you need to do to move forward right again saw live in seoul yeah i'm sure it does all the time got that's an issue that has to be attended to pretty quickly i was amazed absolutely amazed at how quick i got those results so <hes> and that's all i'm sure artificial intelligence is involved with that because they have you know they they mark all all of your blood samples rules and goals to some lab and the lab is doing their thing and they already have you know they already have your your client i._d. number and all this other stuff and here it is an email to me when i get back to my office i was just blown away by that so i really is improving improving a lot of these things so five g. is next on the list so a lot of us are used to four g. on our phones dodgy means generation so the first generation was about this loss internet that you could possibly have fallen but allowed you conflict connect of course we had to g which is probably most people came in to have an internet on their phone seven eight years ago then there was three g. and and that was a big improvement <hes> and when four g. he came around that was the rise in my opinion of g._p._s. on your phones yeah and that type of thing because you can get information quick enough to allow you to navigate using your phone as a you know with a g._p._s. unit built into into it <hes> before that you could probably drive and drive into a lake before the g._p._s. would say make a u-turn you know so driving so this is really interesting five g. <hes> will be do you know approximately ten times faster than four g. which will allow us the ability to manipulate an analyze data across wireless platforms you'll have drones that will be able to talk to each other and fly distances now <hes> that type of thing and we'll get it into that a little bit but yeah there's a lot of opportunity i think with with the increased speed <hes> that fives you will have it's an expensive <hes> transition though from four g. to five g. because the antennas the best way to describe this actually is a._m. versus f._m. yeah right so a._m. <hes> probably not as good a quality right yeah but gets a lot longer distance yeah amplified modulation rate it follows the curvature of the planet yeah that is correct you know so f._m. doesn't allow you to go too far so that's but you get better quality you get much better quality bell so this is kind of the same thing here your four g. allows you to have a little.

"Let's find out it's time for the Tech Ranch on Super Talk Twelve seventy from our studios in beautiful mandate North Dakota along the mighty Missouri River here is your guru of Geek Marlow Anderson so have you ever wondered what maybe the next emerging technology will be and maybe you can get into it early and yeah get couple right exactly fifty years ago it buying into McDonalds or something yeah exac or apple yeah yeah so we're going to have we actually have a list of the top ten emerging technologies of Twenty Nineteen <hes> that will have near-term business and financial opportunities now. I'm definitely interested in this because I want. I'm looking for things to Indust- sure sure so at the control panel producer extraordinaire Jim Wall so you bought a TV yeah. We bought a beautiful T._v.. Trying to remember the brand. I think it's a Sony we got it at Walmart. Okay <hes> it's a big fifty incher okay and we got it at home and it doesn't fit the entertainment big. You know. It's funny that <hes> I can't first of all I. I bet you're surprised at how inexpensive they are yeah. It wasn't and that actually allows you. Maybe if you know if you had a budget of whatever it is right in the goal there and you're like oh my goodness I can get some much larger three four hundred dollars. You can get a thing. That'll seems like it fills half the it had the wall. It's amazing. I mean I can't get over how inexpensive T._v.'s have have gotten. I know uh-huh light light light but it's it's bulky but it's not that heavy. I was working on my mom's T._v.. Yesterday I put a some bar in in my mom's house and because one of the problems with flat screens and and you're probably gonNA maybe with what you're doing. You're not gonNA notice that but I had mounted. There's on the wall yeah and the speakers tend to be in the back of the of the so then they couldn't hear it very well. So then I wanted a sound bar on yesterday which was a significant an improvement but <hes> but yeah I mean it's just <hes> but as I was working on it you know people are asking if I needed some help taken down off the wall or whatever I'm like. Why can I can handle this thing with one hand yeah? It's so late that it's just you know it's amazing to me so <hes> it's really it's really impressive. How far television technology so we got the new one set up <hes> in the the other one we got the smaller version catch set up in the bedroom okay and we got netflix and everything else on that right right so we're hot to trot? So did you knew income with all. Its Pre install yeah roku everything yeah yeah which is really nice once we get it set up and I've got a couple of my favorite <hes> big screen movies to go apocalypse doc alleged now and I won't see you for a week and say annually merged with Cheeto dust on your face yeah as me and Colonel Kurtz right right exactly Charlie. I don't serve so <hes> some some news things we need to talk about. <hes> so facebook has announced Dow Libbra crypto currency facebook is going to get into the cryptocurrency game crypto currency Bitcoin <hes> currency used by Superman's yeah. That'd be Kryptonite that never good though I liked that in fact there should be. I wonder if there isn't a cryptocurrency call Kryptonite any Ariza may series series called Krypton. Yes it's like a Prequel to the whole psoriasis ray right and my wife loves that stuff so so facebook's get into this <hes> they unveiled the new crypt lip liberal crypto currency will let users make purchases or send money money to people with virtually no Fli no fees no fleas. We don't have to flee that yeah yeah on your money. That's right <hes> either online or the local exchange <hes> like grocery stores so they're they're planning a partner with grocery stores so we can actually spend your crypto currency which is pretty amazing sure <hes> unlike what we have now I mean it's difficult bitcoin. You can probably use bitcoin. I mean there's some places that allow you to use it and other crypto currencies agencies to but <hes> this is GonNa Kinda. I think facebook will mainstream cryptocurrency so this is really interesting and it'll be available on WHATSAPP MESSENGER and then they'll have its own APP as well facebook will test the blockchain systems soon then implants to a public lines in the first half of twenty twenty so on a body year now. We're going to see a cryptocurrency coming out of facebook and what's interesting about this is does this pave the way for other companies like Microsoft croissant or Google or whatever released their own money. I mean that's kind of what is going on. You figure it's going to take one of the big companies to start doing right. He others will follow. I agree with that so I think were on the verge of something pretty. The extraordinary here where currency I mean Crypto Chrissy right now isn't really backed by government but now you're gonNA move into big companies like facebook who might be I mean it's still not backing your own currency but it's putting their name on it right yeah and that's what I think is going to be the big change here and people who are who have at least some trust in facebook me. Everybody uses it almost daily matter trust. The government. Money is a matter yeah that's exactly right and the government that the they'll back this up yep so I just think that this'll be really interesting for makes it easy for us to purchase things on facebook. I mean is that the next big move by Ebay and and pay pal for example that cryptocurrency is going to be a big deal to so what about a gold standard I can imagine some crypto currencies actually doing that back Golden. That's interesting yeah. That's very interesting reality so yeah we if we have some time later on the so we'll get into blockchain. If we don't have time this week we'll get into it next week a little more because he's some of the more <hes> hard core libertarian types going for that I agree with that. You know the Nice thing with crypto currency and of course with the blockchain piece that works with that is that there isn't any single one place place that manages any of this the yeah blockchain uses thousands and thousands of computers to create a public record using what's called a hash yeah to record the transaction and money becomes another product that you can <hes> you have options. Yeah you can choose this type of money or that's correct now. That's interesting that is very interesting. You know it's not that the WHO knows I mean really who knows where this will will take us in the future <hes> U._S.. Hits Iran with crippling cyber. cyber-attacks over the last couple of days <hes> basically not surprising there. We took down their computer networks that control their missiles over the last couple of days. Isn't that interesting that he interesting so here that much about crazy that wasn't talked up. I was on the actual <hes> whether we were going to actually have a shooting war right folk right while basically if that was the case then our military just decided yeah if if you guys want to shoot missiles at us and we'll disabled missiles at all the plug on we don't have to actually go in and blow up things yeah we can just basically like you said pull the plug on it which is interesting. You should devote a show to that at some point because there's is a lot of very interesting and frankly very frightening possibilities behind the well and even even on our own country. I mean you know we we lag as far as <hes> cybersecurity goes here too but we're probably better than most parts of the world. There's probably a few parts you know. Governments have do aluminum job than we do but we're we're at risk as well. I mean just just because we can take Iran down doesn't mean that Iran can't do something with us yeah about the whole electromagnetic pulse exactly exactly and of course <hes> the Chinese have have so many products you know in our system right now routers and things like this and you know even T._v.'s that listen to us and whatever else in a lot of this stuff people don't understand or know that it's.
"ranch " Discussed on The Tech Ranch
"Out west alone calloway caps and spurs well shingle journal jingle well while marlow is out we have taken over the tech ranch so this is bad shots taylor an jim walsh and with his today's officer lynn weiner andrew lynn we're talking about tech aunt a law enforcement as here with this mike police department so i wanted to ask you about the cool thing about a working in media for the police department is you don't you're not the only police department that exists like their other i've heard there's other police departments in in the world we like to think we are but you were not so do you talk to other police departments are follow follow other departments in tech kinda is there a is there an underground network of social media for law enforcement that all talk to each other rounded up some little criminal so no no underground underground above ground network above ground that way no 'em there actually is there's a lot of law enforcement social media professional throughout the country and we you know we get together at conferences and kind of learn from each other and even locally here too i mean i i know all the people in all the departments that run the social media stuff like that so we communicate and help each other out and and get some ideas somebody will have a really good idea that you know you might not have thought of and it just it it helps everybody out so yeah absolutely and i imagine that even though you are responsible for the city of bismarck that people who commit crimes don't isolate themselves only to the city of this mark but sometimes they may cross up and go into other towns and such so how does that datta sharing happen or how do you how does how does that work like if someone commits something in bismarck is there a way that you know that they also did something manner fargo weaken we communicate with each other departments to 'cause yeah like you said nobody just stays on one side of the river they travel yeah so we yeah we do communicate with other departments i i pretty much talk demand npd daily you know just on different things just because if it's happening over there it's probably happening in bismarck as well so it just keeping those lines of communication occasion open is really important because everybody's dealing with the same thing we just have to you know get everything together to form a case i have to ask the about face book end people's profile so if you're digging up information on sell a suspect fact or someone who i'm a person of interest let's say do you are you able to find information on just what the public on their social media oh yeah that that's just out there and you're looking up and there's a lot it's it's amazing what you could find that people don't realize that they're even posting i mean there's there's a lot of doubt attached anything that's posted that's available on his public so great so if someone takes themselves at a certain location perhaps not in left their profile public that's that's just say convenient in the face will be big on the check ins and that's really not a huge thing anymore and those used all be public but that's changed and you know the social media sites change all the time to so different rules and different things they will and won't allow that makes sense i wanna touch on a the media because even though you yourself are able to send out a lot of information on through your own channels you definitely have relationships with the the more traditional media let's say such as gyms world and the radio and tv can you talk about how those relationships are and how you get information to them yeah were were really lucky here in our community 'cause we have great media people we work really listen we work really closely with them and we get to know him 'em we actually do daily media briefings every morning at her department where we go through the reports from the night before and what kind of let them know what's going on and then anytime there is a you know a major event or something is happening bacon they'll call us they'll text us or whatever just to get information and usually it seems like the media's contacting me before i'm even getting called in so thanks for the heads up i'll get i'll get there but you know then that's how we use social media if we have event we could put it out on twitter facebook you know where media staging as and then they all know where to go yeah so we we do send out still traditional press releases by email now more than you know the facts through the scanner but 'em so do interact with them a lot pretty much daily and they know that they come to us and we could come to them so we we definitely are lucky around here and have a good relationship with the media yeah so i think when people have questions there they or we talked about when people have tips so when they have tests they can go through the tip for one one app you have a form on your website there are ways to send that anonymously but sometimes people just have questions or clarification like my neighbor's dog is constantly barking is that okay what are my quieter is things like that or 'em went where do you where should they go if they just have questions and they just call the department ask yeah they couldn't call the department animal questions we actually have a specific facebook page just for bismarck animal control so and that one's new that's where you'll find all the dogs and cats at her up at the impala and all that kind of stuff so that was something we had put that on are are mean facebook page but it was kind of getting overrun so we decided to separate it off for the people just interested in animals and it seems to be working good you messages through that page okay we could send messages through the police departments pages well we just want to remind everybody that you cannot report crimes through there you can't you know it does not take the place of calling nine one one emergency and it's not monitored all the time so i mean we monitor it when we can have other people that helped me but a lot of times we don't get the questions right away maybe not even the same day you're the same week right in what if i had a question about my a specific neighborhoods like i'm seeing he'd been seen specific suspicious activity but i just don't know and and there isn't even anything tangible like a a specific incident i can report can i just call and talk to someone decided even how does that work sure i'm yeah even called the department are crime prevention community services unit they they will come out and do like security surveys of you're home if that's something you're concerned about and so there's somebody that you know they even talk to if you wanna see where what crime is happening in your neighborhood in and kind of give you an idea of that so yeah just called up even called on anytime somebody or somebody will be able to help you so this idea of police says helpers yes yes i like that okay we can do that that's great 'em so from your side jim do you have any questions saying please tell me more about that daily briefing you mentioned what time is it it's at ten o'clock on monday and then nine o'clock every other day is open to the public is open the media media so i could show you could if you wanna do yup yeah i probably would couple times yeah you got me say it depends sometimes i don't know if you're on her media list but the pl will send out an email if there was nothing in the reports just so people don't waste their time coming down how could we get owned the most you just give me an email and i will make sure you get on it very good so and then you'll get all the press releases through that two hundred forty yeah yeah definitely so i just wanna go through other the tools i know there's tip for online i heard of an app where they have 'em i think they're like sexual offenders are always listed or something like that or is it they actually just show like picture they show information about offenders are you aware of any of this not through the department no i don't i don't know about and out there might be one but i'm not aware of it yeah are there any other resources you kind of point people to to if they're like looking for more information on definitely like you couldn't go to well burly coney has a jolt tracker okay where you could see who's currently in custody 'em you couldn't go to be attorney attorney general's website they have the sex offender registry on there that so yeah that's another one just sometimes just the google the google yeah that's absolutely true so 'em so i think as some take away there's the tip for one one app there's a falling you guys on facebook twitter instagram instagram skin pretty pretty popular it is more and more in some visually driven sunny must mean you guys are taking more photos and well it's there's a lot of different demographics used each social media platform so obviously we started with facebook's and then we were advised twitter and i thought i don't know anything about twitter but you know the media uses twitter a lot it's kind of call it it was a college age thing yeah so i mean like you andy has a really great twitter page because they've got college students there eight so that was kind of that demographic what we felt like we were missing like the high school kids and the younger ones which is where instagram trump came in yeah that's definitely kind of the demographic that's on instagram so we don't publish the same media on all platforms all the time every once in a while we would i do but it just kind of it's we have that ability the talked to so many different age ranges and groups just by having all those different choices you have so many audiences in so many different types of messages i mean it's a huge kind of communications has not a lot going on and then you too i mean how you how's the police department using some video well if we take like a recruiting video for example down on her you to paid yeah 'em surgery she needs to make videos and those around argue to page and we don't use it a whole lot but if there's a video we have of the department that's where we put we put it on there and i believe that great recruitment video was a up a sack the blue project or a donation of some sorry reds wasn't it or at a community supported yeah it was through communications it at a really great job i saw some very good well on with that so you to and then i'm curious you mentioned pen trust rail is that for maybe safety information or what do you use for it kind of sounds ridiculous doesn't know if i am seeing more and more of that so it just we don't really use the pinchers too much but it is a way to organize all of one thought into boards so if parents is looking for information for their teens on drug use it's all right there in one board if you're looking for information on like two one of them's called parents tool.
"ranch " Discussed on The Tech Ranch
"Welcome back to the tech ranch where here with doctor lin wanna end jim as always and so i wanna so i was thinking about when i was growing up i my babysitter would have an old police scanner you remember this where you could like tune in and listening to what was going on in town anos coming over that almost like a cb radio or something i don't think that's a thing anymore i don't they can i had one in college 'cause it was fun and you could listen to what what's going on in town and i kinda can't imagine and that happening a lot of radio surgery and stone harbor i'm sure they monitor what's going on with the news oh really okay interesting and i know there are sites to look up like a kind of crime datta and offenders in the area and things like that but the future there is now an i wanna talk to you about a limb about things that are coming up in one thing that you mentioned was license plate scanning capabilities and things how how all this on how we can help make the community safer through more technologies and great yeah license plate readers we don't have any at this point but there's something that they would go in the cars and they kind of run on their own so as the cars driving around it's it's gathering license plate doubt and one of the some of the useful things without is if we have stolen cars weaken input into that system so if this license plate reader comes across the car stolen it'll give him an alert to know or if you're missing persons kidnappings amber alerts anything like that any vehicles it's associated with that can be put into that into that databa so that if we come across it says a lot of times in the cars i mean you have to multitask a lot and you can't watch everything so if you've it's it's just another tool friendly officers to have an not really have to think about because it kind of does the work for you which will be super helpful i think so it's like another version of i'm just thinking of a dash cam but a camera that set up and it's just constantly scanning written recordings license plate datta and then when it paying for something you're looking for here just there's an auto notification flag goes up right yup it's alert you if you're alerted to it that i just can't even imagine like how far things have come that doesn't even seem like possible five years ago right exactly exactly it's it's kind of knew the us to store looking into it but definitely just hearing the positives that the benefits would be amazing so there is a phrase that comes up that i'm hearing more and more about it's called intelligence lead policing so can you touch on what intelligence lead policing as well as intelligence policing is kind of focusing on what's doing the most harm to your community and how the kind of solve that it's we wanna be more proactive in enforcement then reactive you know if we can identify these issues that were having beforehand and see how we can fix those issues an identified as you know the people in locations that are doing the most harm so it just it's a better way for us to protect the community to be safer to get ahead of things you know we always if something big happens like if if there's a murder that happens that really you know it affects more in this is kind of a bad way to say but it affects a small group of people 'em but if thirty people have their tires slash that affects a lot of people and that affects the community and those were the things that we need to really kind of focus on his quality of life issues that people are concerned about if somebody is going around breaking into cars that's gonna concern the entire community so those those were the things were trying to focus on kind of from the ground up and try to catch that stuff before it gets out of control it's like the broken window affect but literally right that many broken windows you wanna tamp that down exactly interesting so 'em policing is exactly like what i see on see esi right like you you all everything in one hour and you find you know obvious clues used dna and you know and you're able to just wrap it all up and sixty minutes trade that would be amazing okay great and we'd always looked great in africa outfits yeah cars so what are some misperceptions you think that the public has of policing of what you do oh boy there's you know they think we couldn't get any information on anybody at any time which is not always the case we do have access to obviously a lot more information indebted then you know the general public would but we can't just go pull somebody spank record's or we can't put a facial scanner out that will look for a person in a crowd like on the tv shows dna takes a long time to come back and that's you know and that's depending on the person had dna in the system if they could even match it with or if it's a good sample saying look like fingerprints friends and so there's you know if it if we could solve everything in thirty minutes to an hour that'd be great i imagine a lot of folks i get kind of a paranoid kind of paranoid about the whole privacy thing yeah two hundred or whatever you're though one but it's not actually all their instantaneously no and it's interesting 'em whippy acceleration with social media and how quickly things spread it's amazing how quickly people get anxious like why aren't they said anything why why haven't they told us he answer to this crime or things like that so what is your obligation to the public i mean because i think the public expects right when i kinda discovered that you have some obligation of sorts to tell everything you know right and you know we were very i guess consistent with when stuff does happen we get we get information out as soon as we absolutely can we give the public is much as we can because we know everybody's concerned especially if it's something that's gonna concern them we wanna get on top of that because it would be worse to have information put out you know the different social media sites where people say i heard this i heard that heard this that way if we get it out first and we have a correct people are gonna come out information instead of spreading those rumors so that's you know we wanna be consistent we wanna be fast but we wanna be accurate 'cause i would rather i would rather wait a few minutes before putting something out just to make sure is true then they have to go back later and say sorry my bad is that never never goes well yeah we had an issue for us with rjr which is now you're department it's a half year and mandated few few weeks ago where those kind of questions came up like you say you have they you have a protocol right now you have to follow what's the best you're building and everybody's gonna be happy about that and it is very hard with especially with the big investigation like that in areas you i mean they obviously the police department wanna tell us much as they could but they could've just for the sake of the investigation and i know that was very frustrating to the community and i could see it both ways 'cause i myself i was like well where's information but once once i learned why it wasn't being released or anything then you know you understand better but it it's hard to wait in situations like that so in that case i think it was all resolved in three days but those three days people were pretty you know outside and i think there were a lot of while just called armchair investigators i this is what they should do and things like that so it's awesome i can't imagine that's frustrating but your you always have the best of intentions let's say an reasons for you're actions 'cause all that policy so right again it's not like it's not like see assize that sixty minutes known i'll be the most accurate one out there is either cops her live pd 'cause you actually get the see what what happens you know so it's not all not all unicorns and rainbows and even they have an agenda like they wanna show the action and they wanna feel like people getting tackled and staff members at one big backyard with no shirt on one great so 'em well that's is there other kind of miss misperceptions from the from the public side we've talked about you know don't tell your kids the cops are bad geysers threatening them you talked about a you know you don't have all the info right away in that like face scanners and crowds and things right actually snowball and anything else that comes top of mind i'm just i know that there's sometimes where people have got get upset when you know they'll make a report and they want this person charged 'em art and then they get upset at us if the person's not charged judge are job is to take the report and send it to you know the the city in states attorney for determination as to whether they're not that's gonna be charged out so a lot of that stuff is out of our hands you know when we do the work and send it up and there's it's sometimes it's frustrating for us to like if we just we won't know what happens with the case goes to trial or you know if not called to testify so we don't get a lot of information when it leaves are building either so it's kind of it's it's just a give takes like the fact the police officers themselves for judge and jury right like actually make a right yeah you are able to arrest on the spot for certain really serious crimes but others you you cannot you can make you make the report and then you send it on curve that you're interfacing so a lot of a lot of education can you touch on for people who are really interested in you touch on the citizens academy sure the citizens academy is really great because it allows community members come in and kind of see like a day in the life of a police officer you know it allows them to see like the patrol aspect of it a the special teams all the different sections that we have because there's a lot we have a lot of people that don't patrol that are in the building as support staff or we have a lot of civilian employees is well so we have animal control we have are traffic section we have you know it just it gets it gives the public be i guess kind of inside view of what all goes onto the police department and a lot of people say that they didn't realize that there were so many different jobs basically as a police officer so how do i how do i joined the simpsons academy or how do i apply in i believe in august we will be putting out information on her facebook and the website and there's a link you follow and you fill out an online application and i said i'm not sure exactly when they put it out but it'll be coming up soon nfl recollect it's a series of almost classroom evening classes or ignorant yeah it's like i think it's twelve weeks long any gopher a few hours at once a week and there's usually a group of twenty other people and it's it's nice to because there's people from all different careers all different age levels in all different just there's a bunch of different people kind of confusing perspectives of everybody and you know if you have questions about what the police department does why they do certain things that's a really good kind of and i opener yeah see an afterwards everyone who graduated get there get their own like siren they can put on top of their car and she over whenever they want excellent kelly then i think you get a coffee mug but kind of close okay i'll take the mug that would be call do so jim you should you should think about it maybe you could join in on that i think it would be it education just go through it oh absolutely up there's so much more to it than what we see so yeah i think they even light that you shoot guns one of the nights to i'm not positive we do i figures come i go with the ball police lego this is a gun you don't get one i'll stay away from the.

"Is i mean i'm looking at the the numbers here from robbery just straight up rob robbery actually is in the same space a hundred per hundred thousand you would think that number there will be crazy highest murder rate now here in north dakota it's kind of a a nominal it is cause we were so low for so many years we literally had nowhere to go but up yeah and sure enough as they population is increased as it would be economic opportunities that people see here and they the influx of people yeah there has been some ray there has been some hike in the crime rate albeit not as much as a lot of people were saying there would be right and we certainly we still living in rural bubble here yeah were so kind of regulation in the bars crime is the robbery thing to when i saw this chart goes all the way back to nineteen sixty that robbery was at a rate of about fifty five urso so dan where now it's at a hundred but that's an era where we didn't even lock their doors or anything yet yeah i mean our in a whole a whole different thing but robbery right there really dropping a aggravated assault is come down like crazy 'em property crimes times i mean at one time or at five hundred per hundred thousand her now at about three hundred so another about you know forty percent decrease their so it's amazing so anyway my theory is technology okay anna really goes down to do you know the collapsing crime rate might have been driven by cell phones so one of the things that i was investigating this was the wade drug lords drug cartels a gangs in especially urban areas were very territorial at one time yes territory was a huge deal so much so that if you actually sold your good sort of speak in somebody else's territory you probably gonna lift much longer days right at movies all the time right right well the turf thing isn't i mean it's still kind of a thing but it's not as big a deal because it's not about relationship building in the ability to actually reach out to people directly vr cell phones this change that whole dynamic so i think first of all that has really changed how things go and i think the other thing is that you just don't know anymore if you're gonna get recorder not yeah i think i think the fear of actually being being recorded taking a photo or video of you perpetrating something 'cause you just it's it's tough to get away with stuff now right significantly tougher than it used to be and getting worse all the time i mean in that i you know there are more and more cameras everywhere 'em but it's not so much big brother watching us says were all watching each other that's correct that's exactly what's going on in you know businesses have cameras homes have cameras are doorbell have cameras and now there are cameras everywhere in everybody carries a camera yeah so when something is going down someplace you're probably gonna be on the next you to clip which or you may have to go viral yeah or facebook or whatever and that's gonna make it feel even watch the nightly news a wad of the clips that you see on the nightly news are from cell phones yeah so that is my theory i just think technology is the primary reason that that all these have been driven out so what do you you guys have thoughts what do you think again it's interesting i thought i i never gave it that much thought about the technology but yeah i mean it makes sense i would also add the improvement of education which again you could probably also there's a technological unheard of that you know with technology more information more educational resources are available a presumably the more we educate people a the more control they have over the wives and the less likely they will have to resort crime time now i always i had eight political science professor who used to always a he would talk about that and he would always say but never forget that twenty five percent of the stop lower ph these so they increase in education doesn't we work on are favor i'm just saying but it is certainly a factor to it's worth a more study i'm sure sure sure what do you think there's some yeah i i think that with technology can do more direct marketing and then you know on the other side of it a you know people have other things to do now yeah you you could instead of running around causing trouble you're playing video games when you're thirteen well that's interesting you've ever thought about that way either you're just not even thinking about giving them the because you're you're my focus someplace place else yeah so i mean it's got its negatives in other areas as far as you know social skills and in yeah he rarely see more kids are playing sports and necessarily playing games yeah right at the rally not in cars much either so there's a trade off i i look at d a i i call i forget what i call it something that's the line scenario when you're when you're waiting in line the deal te'o checking offer groceries or whatever people would always be talking to each other and complaining about how long the lines are riding in almost like some people pick the long lines because they kept up on their on their smart it i'm serious it's just amazing nobody everybody's on their device all the time and if you have to wait for five minutes nobody really complaints we're gonna be a while just what you do go you do so yeah you're right i mean the diversity in itself might be enough to keep people out of trouble that's interesting interesting so anyway i just wanna throw that out there 'em dustin has been a driving lifting uber since like two days after a while we were talking about runs after that started in march yeah so lipped actually was the first company that that game in in twenty seventeen and then hoover was like two days after yeah right so 'em and you've been so you've been a couple of years now how many people how many rights it'd be given i've done thirty four hundred on over an fourteen hundred on left wow so pushing five thousand total so you are averaging while in two years time you probably do eight ten rides a day yeah yeah the first six months a a my other my other work wasn't really going and so i was kind of fulltime making about fifteen hundred dollars a week doing while for months in a that was because because you're early days there were more demand and supply hoover and lift is the closest thing to eight textbook free market scenarios are supply and demand that there is okay an so you've got issues where you're supply and demand and if they're not in sync then you have have issues on both sides if you don't have enough drivers then you have a lot of work for the drivers there are and they could make a lot more money being used at all that on the flip side if you have too many you get saturation nobody's making any money any and they get discouraged and they go home where do we stand now where where where on that line to we were closer to the too many drivers who many drivers okay so a if i were to if i were thinking about getting into it would you recommend not do it then that there's no money if you're doing it part time and then you're probably okay if you're trying to make a living off of it it's not gonna go very well here's a question about last yeah you know how just how good a living can you make realistically yeah in the early days i mean it was you know two three hundred bucks a day sometime in the end then a lately a i'm driving much lately but a the last day that i did a full day a one fifty was a push okay so i mean you're you're looking at a lot of diminishing returns yeah do you have any horror stories to for like how many times of people throwing up and you're backseat mom i've had six different vomit scenarios luckily i have a shampoo machine in a a you know in college i detail cars so it's not a good good big challenge if it happens once a kind of shut you down to the whole day yeah yeah yeah yeah in a so you've got that scenario you've got the people that fight in the vehicle that 'em yeah i mean i probably had maybe out of the almost five thousand maybe fifty bad situations and five really dangerous situation oh wow m a i mean i've had guys you know literally beating each other up national man the other guy's head against the window while taxi to yeah yeah and so i mean you've gotta have number one in order to do it you have to have patience man in a a if you can't deal with screaming kids in the car you're probably not gonna be a very good uber driver that would make sense that's all line you hear you don't handle screaming kids very well joe you buddy so how about a bar type or a you know a big time and have you picked up a it was a c so so bar time is interesting we used to have what was called surge on never never had surgery what they called primetime in the bismarck market a.

other one yeah and he would the doc was there was a real live january and bona fide delorean automobile yes but they did the hatch doors open up space capsule yup fascinating it was pretty cool story very dapper those were listening literally across the country on the blueberry network we are on our hometown heroes mandy on north dakota an every year at this time we have about using blues yeah which is become one of the primary events i would say in our region and you know we had i know i it's hard to say i i've been lining up the cars for many many years of this event i don't remember so many cars ever it was we were we were trying to find little nooks and crannies they're just can't do that with a car audio squeeze another car into this space and i know it's great for folks this show of all was amazing really don't have to start driving all over town right yeah and that's the thing you know even as i wandered away that's the way after the cars up yesterday morning promoting our and the amount of people who were around drive in their class that were not in this show seemed to be pretty high to every year we get some kind of special thing this year it was the historian out here we had eddie munster that's right on yeah very nice yeah so it was a great weekend and you know speaking of technology in rides yeah we gotta go back where trump that was fun seen that they did you get down there yesterday yeah yeah orientals well i did yeah so are you a big back to the future fan i am i am i i remember a that a back to the future to is one of the first movies i saw theater oh actually the best to be a i think so you do yeah yeah i like that yeah i did like the wasn't three were they what were the west yeah the wild yeah i like some of those scenes you know with the north korean being chased by the horses i thought you know that was kind of a clever thing it's the only that could be made today probably not yeah probably not one of those like literally incorrect yeah yeah there's there's anyone has some of the more interesting themes and then right actually got a little dark at certain point it is interesting yeah yeah it was actually a good series all all going in and stands the test of time yeah so yeah you're gonna be talking liberal lifting hoover 'em but before we get to that a since i have you in the studio here yeah i know you're you're a little bit of a politico for if i were not gonna get into that so much a except for crime rates mhm so i find this interesting and i'll just give you a scenario here my mother thinks the world is on fire absolutely on fire she you know she she sits in in watches a lot of news programs and what have you have ends up not really interested in traveling anywhere because she thinks murder is like you know it's just like rampant everywhere you're gonna get you're gonna get whatever right and in fact major crime in this country is down in down get nificant only over the last twenty five years in cities like new york have a they the crime rates were very high line but they've dropped dramatically there are there are spy city city there are they offering chicago detroit i mean they're still issues using some of those towns whatever depends on what part of town you're that's correct that's correct but for the most part and i'm just looking at the charts of i pulled here i mean murder rates in this this i i'm not quite sure where these numbers come from acsi what you're saying the murder rate it is at pretty close to an all time low at at about a hundred per hundred thousand yeah but i do the math in twenty seventeen we had an estimated number of murders that seventeen thousand two hundred and eighty four we have approximately three hundred and fifty million people in the country yes okay all right so if that's the case then this number tells me it's one in one in a m it should be half that like it's fifty out of a hundred thousand because if it's a hundred out of a hundred thousand this number should be thirty five thousand yeah maybe adults eighteen plus i need investigate this more of these numbers don't jive with me so you you might be right usually those numbers are talking about adults but then again maybe not who i mean it all depends on what what what demographic they're doing in in whether it is they sampled around his rehab real number writers writing like the right thing is you look at the tv news and some of the bigger cities and it looks like some kind urban exploitation film with all the blood and guts yeah you have to remember that the news which by its nature is they exception to the rule yeah you know you go to new york it's not like a you know scape from new york the movie or necessarily necessarily like a yes there is crime yeah but it's not like you see in the movies words some kind of apocalyptic thing right and not together you're talking about getting a little dark so yeah one i've talked about this with some people in the past and the number one thing i always get is roe versus wade when it comes to declining crime rates in this country yeah you're talking about seeing him do you know what i'm talking about the freakonomics thing where somebody theorized is that the passing of roe versus wade had something to do with the lowering of the crime rate right the idea of being in this is this sounds like some kind of bizarre joe but it's amazing how many people grab onto this yeah yeah but yeah go ahead it's just a hypothesis the idea is that since roe v wade a they're supposedly more abortions i know that's a fact but he i fear is that there's more abortions air go a lot of people who would have grown up to become criminals that's correct don't exist in our world it's an idea that they threw out in one book a i think they were just a kind of a kind of speculation kind of a mental razor size a i don't know that there's any credibility to it for there's a lot of things wrong with just put it that yeah i agree with that were not gonna get into the were not gonna get rid of that they know and dustin i i would imagine that i i avoid that issue like the plague politically i stay with the the financials numbers but my understanding that that is a causation does not equal coral correlation will not eat right out they actually right because the standard of living during that time has drastically increase wages have not necessarily what you've been by far as a you tv's and in entertainment in in luxury items that weren't available at the price if they were a in nineteen seventythree yeah a you know a much different and so my understand it's you know all these factors playing together yeah there's no one there is no one laws you ought to just have a direct correlation of that no it it it's a small piece but not but not the cut in the laws of so i will after the break here 'em will continue this conversation 'cause i think it's something significant after the break we're gonna get into what i think is the major reason why we are crime rates have dropped so stay tuned that looks will begin at the.
"ranch " Discussed on The Tech Ranch
"Here's your guru of geek, Marlow Anderson. We're talking about napping over the break here, we really need to have like, like a webcam or something going on in here. Yeah. Yeah. We did we all get a three minute or three minute. Power nap has received. Yeah. So catnap. So the debate is are not all movies, but our, our movies worse, now than they were in the past because every one of us is talking about how we fallen asleep during movies recently. Or significant others have fallen asleep during the movie recently. So what do you think Bill? I mean is this is this something that I mean, I, I went to the vendors movie the other night, that's three hours. You know, I didn't fall asleep at that one, but I know the movie I went to I went to the hustle earlier in the week at a few evenings. I had some time to myself travelling around, so I guess, I go to movies when I do that. And I think the movie was pretty good. It was it was exact duplicate of dirty, rotten scoundrels, which I really love back today. And so it was fun to watch, but I notice that I fell asleep what halfway through. So our movies worse than they used to be. Or are we just older? What's the deal? You're older. You think that's what it is? Well, it's probably mixed to if it is just a recreation. You know, like endgame, what exactly, you know how they can tie this up. Right. Where are they going to end up? Who's gonna come back who is in, you know, you anticipated waiting to see, but if it's a movie of seen any us coming, you know, the joke lines, you know, it's just like, I think, okay to now for a second. Okay. So if you spend fifty bucks to go to a movie, and you take a nap. I mean, is it really? I mean, is that considered a true power nap then because you've actually I mean, I spent less on hotel rooms. Pretty expensive now. So just recliners for you now. So that is true. These these seats in these movie theaters are unbelievable alley. So which is good. Anyway, maybe that's why they have those that you can sleep while you're there. We're talking about work and technology and bills with the lions real estate in Bismarck, North Dakota, and we were just talking about Google Drive, and he's got a whole sheet of other things that he's going to share with us. So what's next on your list there? Well, we have talked about social media advertising marketing Kip, because there's no way around it most agents for your starting I mean, for myself, you know, it was all right. I need to get my name out there. My voice, you know what I'm good at my niches, but I don't have a thousand dollars a throw a month at this. I'm just getting into it. There's at least a ninety day usually from when you start to even if you sold the house on your first day could be up to ninety days for you to check. I see, you know, you have to be really the bootstrap it really. Because Facebook still, you know, the biggest one out there, Instagram growing, but the demographics younger, and then you have like Pinterest, which is definitely more on the female side of things. And there's all these different social media's linked in is actually growing and growing. So see Gary v or meaner Chuck, I see him every single day on there and then grandparent, but to save time, because it's annoying to go in and. Okay. I took a picture, put on Facebook. And now I need to shrink and make it a square for Instagram. And then it's going to be tall and narrow for Pinterest. Like gets a little crazy. So one of the most powerful apps, I use buffer. Okay, because it's so nice. Just hey Fridays for one hour. I'm gonna sit down. I'm supposed out a whole month of ads and schedule it and now it's off to the races. I don't have to worry about it. So I can really leverage my time, and then I can give another person access to my calm and they can, you know, make pretty things ensure different. Parts of information, and then utilizing to like national day calendar, you can create a little extra things will tie together. So, so on on buffer. I mean so buffers like who's sweet co schedule. You know, which is I mean, they're they have their differences. Of course, what is it about buffer that you like over the others when you were shopping around for super simple? Okay. I mean I most of the times, I'm picking a picture like one million cups of animal take a picture, take the event, some people myself, and then literally just I can sit there in about three minutes and have it on five different social media's, it's just it actually it actually takes the image and recitals it for all the different ones is Instagram in that list as well with buffer now or not yet, they're there. But what happens is of buffer doesn't have can access it. So it prepares it. And then it opens up your Instagram's he still have to like hit send. Gotcha. And then it will post in that, okay? So they're not quite there, but well. Instagram has made it difficult for these companies to do that type of thing. So but I think they're starting to open it up or other companies are figuring out work arounds, right? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's it's, you know it's the easiest yet again simple. I mean that's buy buffer. So nice because there's not a lot of options. It's great post and click the social media's you wanted to be a part of it and you're done to date the time. It'll optimize it for the time of day. And then if you really get going into the tracking side of things, it's pretty fun there. Okay. Because there's another one that's been emerging called later and later Instagram feature with it. So you can actually don't have to do that the second step piece of it. But I think the challenge, of course, a lot of times, you'll you know, I see you write that down. I'll just like I wrote a buffer down because I'm gonna go check that out of it later too, because I haven't looked at it for a while. But the problem I always comes to do. I wanna learn something new since I already know buffer now. Right. I mean, this is the challenge you're gonna have, or, or is later gonna give me enough other. Other things. And I'm gonna say, Yep. I'm gonna throw my my ringing or my hat into the ring on this one and learn this because I like the features they have now because they're all about the same as far as pricing goes so twenty bucks a month. And maybe do you use the free version of buffer note? Okay. Spend nothing ninety seventy year. Okay. Oh, so pretty discount. Yeah. Yeah. That's still. That's more. Yeah. That's, that's fifteen bucks a month. That's not terrible. Yeah. And so it's nice to not even that. No. She'll be about eight nine bucks a month. Yeah. I think one hundred ninety for some reason. So okay, yeah, yeah, that's good. That's good. Well, it's really I mean the nice thing about it though is all those social media's fixed points. And so if I use buffer, and I'm working, we're giving assistant they can use whatever they want, right fine. Right. Because concealing Iraq and do everything. It's not just buffer exclude right over. So that's really nice where hey, what are you comfortable with something? I just learned about the other day as podium, I guess I'm way behind the times on that. But just seeing how you can build it and customize. It's like this is perfect for all sorts of things. Obviously I'm way behind too, because I haven't even heard a podium before. How's that spelled P denial? Yep. Set a podcast or it's, it's a like a CRM, but you can build like web forms input data. So I could like send you a survey, you can upload documents to it. You can say which ones have to be filled out, and then you can post it out on the web. You can post it in emails and super customizable. But then it's the Sierra ams keeps track of everyone payments and everything now. So it's kind of a one stop shop. A lot of people are in the social media marketing use it. Gotcha. So it's kind of like almost like a Salesforce, right? That actually collects money and reaches out more than just stores who they are. Right. Right. Interesting polio, so all right? What's next on your list? Oh, there's there's a time. That's okay. Like another thing. That's interesting. But we have our MLS are MLS on flex, which is Fargo based company. So we have an apt we can check on houses get updates of new listings. And that's. For us agents. And then there's websites all around, they can look. But even though we have the MLS the live feature, we still, I still have to use Zillow realtor dot com and biz Manam, which is obviously very local but, but people do poster houses there. Yeah. Oh, yeah. 'cause people send me something and like realtor dot com, actually buys is a part of our Emma last everything. They get is accurate Zillow just harvests. So they're actually paying for anything. They're just going in and stealing. So which is why they're data is sometimes eighteen months behind. So when someone says we house, and it's like I don't I don't see it wasn't for sale through on molasses through an agent. So go find it on. Whatever one, they're using. And then do some research was a for sale is still for sale call him. I mean, it's kind of like a necessary, evil have to have it just to see what else is going on because. You know, just because I can see the house on the MLS doesn't mean it's the right house. Right. A for sale by owners, the winner then still got to go there and. Yup. The goals are happy happy, happy person and have house so cool. So that's been kind of interesting, but one of the cool things out there is I have TT if this, yes, that's still works. So, so, yeah, it stands for if this then that. Yeah. I f TT so you can so I'll give you an example. But what I use it for. I'm more on the fun side. I and he use it more on the practical side. But if somebody uses national day calendar, for example, in a tweet, then our I have what I call the Twitter light in our office, and that light will blink every time that Jim Nelson in talking about, right. Sometimes it gets to be like a Strobe light over there. You know, because, you know how busy we are that day. Guac day. After a while though you do get used to it. But when people are in there right away. They're like, what does that light blinking for all the time over there? You know, so anyway, but that isn't if this and that, you know, type of thing. So how do you use? If tw. Well for me. It's tying it up to like Craigslist, and different things. Every time a house goes for sale. It's not in my MLS. I can actually have a text message interest side. Don't have to scroll through every day happy because I on flex, I just have the hot sheet, which tells me, what's the new stuff, which prices were reduced. What's got enough? Ron it and what you're sold. So great example, just let you understand everybody, who's listening should go check this out. Because there's there are recipes for anything that you can think of right. Both your scenario is if somebody lists something on Craigslist, then Bill gets a text. Yep. Right. So, but you, you can tie all kinds of softwares together. Right. If you go by our building in the evening when. Lights are on and the international space shuttle flies over the top. And if you see the lights flashing red in our building that means that the space shuttle, or the international space station is right? Above us doesn't happen a lot. But it but it does happen. And so if you ever go by our building and all sudden, it's just flashing red look, up in the sky because that's what's going on. But that's what you can do with if more after the break.

"So okay, let's hear blue today. That's Facebook or could be. Zillow Zillow sometimes gray. And then there's a dark blue just keeping track of all that. It's kind of interesting. But so speaking of which so one of the things that probably drives me a little crazy is the fact that you have to be adept at all these different ways of keeping, you know, in touch with people nowadays. Right. So. And I'm going to pick on you a little bit, Jim. I'm not even sure if I even have your phone number in my phone because you and I always talk through. Yeah. Through what, what are what are you? Yeah. Jim is faced one person. He loves using messenger. And in fact, I will tell you the only reason I have Facebook messenger on my phone is because of you. Oh, well, I hope I'm not messing things. No, no. Not at all. I'm just I'm just saying that everybody else. I've, I've never deemed these messaging services on social media as the direct way to contact people. I always just looked at them as a. Hey, Bill, you do on this go out and have a beer later. Okay. All right. You know. That's how I see it. And Jim, you know, a couple years ago, he, he messaged me on Facebook one day, and I didn't get the message because I don't have it on my phone. And I'm like, wow. I never really even thought about using social media as a business tool in regards of. Yeah. So now I mean I have Twitter of course. People use Instagram to get hold of me linked, and has become a huge way. I get so many messages in Lincoln now for business. It's unbelievable. So so, you know, and some of those actually taken over traditional text. And, and you know, basically phone calls. So do you have a problem keeping up with all this? Yeah. Does get distracting. So I mean we have to have I used to see our M a half to. So does your C R M? I mean somebody's if I send you a message in Facebook, and you get another message from somebody else in Lincoln. Does this aggregate all of this stuff into one? In place or how, how are you doing that? So I don't have a service for that. But once I create a contact couple solutions one is provided by one of the online, brokerages by okay, allows me ill actually pull in from any source and tell me the name number and Email of who is reaching out to me, and it, doesn't it doesn't care where it's from. So if it's someone reaching on Facebook or Zillow or wherever it is it actually pulls it in and just hold it there. So I can see in follow up with them. Got only knowing part is, it's still that service gives me a message this aggregating service gives me a message. And then if they message me more than once and I get four to six pop ups, all of a sudden, like all right. I'm reach after someone. But really, I mean going back. I'm a huge. I love free so Google docs. Okay, it's fantastic. I use Google sheets probably every day, and that's so nice. 'cause I can just type it in and goes with miss on my phone on the computers, someone else's if I need to. So I don't have to. Carry a thumb drive, or anything like that. So I'm just good to go, and I can just pull up what I was working on. And I'm the same I'm in the same space. All of my projects, aren't Google. And whether whether you like that or not, maybe an an and I think apple has similar services to, but even if you're an iphone user, whatever you can still use Google and, and use the Google Drive. I yeah, I, I was just this morning. I was working on a project and something I'm like, man. That was like three years ago. And then sure enough, I pop into Google Drive, and type a little search and through my thousands of documents here comes this one to me thirty seconds to pop that up and revise it and send it off to somebody. So it's wonderful to have that access to those, those documents and things. Yeah. So I agree with you, Google Google docs, Google Drive. And if you have an account, it's free. Yeah. Now it's wonderful because I actually I use a MAC book for my laptop got an I'm a PC desktop and Android phone user. Okay. I unsuccessfully made the whole tried to go with apple. Couldn't do it. I just I need my numbers on my keyboard, because every day is talking about numbers, some shaper another. So do use Google voice as well a haven't yet. Okay. That's something I've looked into for other things. But it's to know that if you call in someone's going to answer every time is huge right? Because even me trying to reach out to other agents sometimes it's multiple days before I even get a callback. And it's like. I've done something unique things with Google voice. I actually have two phones now that I've actually programmed to use actual landline. Phones that I've used with Google voice. I actually free phone calls using Google voice just because I bought a couple of think the one phone was like a hundred bucks but it's provisions for it now. So, like I can make these free phone calls. Great. So, yeah. What have we got going? Now Jim.

"Brings up some interesting philosophical questions. How many times can you rebuild a relic like that? And still say still colored authentic. Yeah, I'm not sure you know, of course they and we'll get into the second they were able to save a lot of the building. Yes, they were, you know, which is pretty amazing. And now they're talking like a three year time line to get rebuilt. And it took two hundred years to build it originally. Yeah. Well, eight hundred year old Bill and it took a long time to get into where it was. Yeah. I don't know how many times it was. It was added onto quite a few different times. Oh, I'm sure yeah. I'm sure I'm sure what we had there, even before the fire was, I won't say it was nothing like the original. But I you know there had to be changes. I mean they. At some point they put electricity, right? Which wasn't there years ago? Right. And they're actually claiming now that it was an electrical short think boils down to all that caused the fire so wouldn't surprise. Yep. Yep. So and you're right. That's exactly what goes on these older buildings get. You know, get modernized bit, because, you know, we want lights, and we want running water also want the authenticity as well. Yep. Yep. So this is interesting prison fighter firefighters. So there'd be firefighters from Paris. He was like five hundred of them were founded. Used drones to track the progression of the Notre Dame fire and to find the best positions to aim their firehoses make sense. Isn't that something? Yeah. So the deployed a couple of DIGI, Idress Ren's, and, and, and it's great because the they weren't even flying what I would call high in drones DJI, which I two of them I own a can't remember the model number now and then I have the maverick as well and the maverick pro which is about a six hundred dollar maybe thousand dollar drone the wings or the arms fold up like like throwing a small backpack on the back and then take it wherever you wanna go is what they flew over this thing. They weren't even using thermal imaging cameras, which you could put on these things every use regular cameras. Sure, going up above the flames and trying to figure out where the best places was because they couldn't see. Where to shoot the water over the building. So they were using the drone to actually be. There is to see where they could, you know, shoot water to and, and it helped firearm a lot quicker. So that's pretty cool. It is very much, you know, so I, I was pretty impressed. When I when I heard this, you know, I was dismayed, when I found out that it was an electrical short that took the building down because modernization took it down. But even newer technology help save it from the what could have been with which massive loss. You know. So I'm sure when they rebuild it they'll be able to, you know, do some new things. And also keep some of the old structure. I hope so I hope they keep some element of authenticity to, I'm sure they will. I'm sure they will, you know, pretty mazing though with the eleven million people, your go to this things, let's thirty thousand people a day. Yeah. Attend that, that's pretty amazing. Yeah, when you think about that. So a lot of people go to pair just to. That very much. Yeah. Robocalls, deliverable calls. Oh or. Begin. Anesthesia, like somebody knock these guys. Oh my goodness. It's just it just doesn't seem to go away. I can't get rid of them. I mean, it took me a long time when I was looking for a new health plan. I made the mistake of calling services and getting estimates and later, I did decide on the plan. But all these other people, they keep calling me and you keep saying, no, no, I don't wanna be called anymore. You press the button saying, you don't wish to be you wish to be unsubscribe or whatever they call it, and they keep calling anyway, I think a lot of times, there's a couple of thirty is about that scenario again. I think if you actually answer. And then you say you don't want, you know, you hit the seven to unsubscribe or whatever. Right. They think they have a live one now. So they'll, they may unsubscribe subscribe you from the from that particular. But because you actually answer the phone. They'll sell you as a live phone number now to eighteen other place. That's ridiculous. And that's what goes on. So I think the best scenario with phone calls is. Just to ignore them. Yeah. You know, and that we went to worry about, you know, hopefully in the future. But very rarely answer my phone anyway. Unless I it's somewhat. I actually know an expecting in wanting to talk to that person. Isn't it sad that it's gotten to that point? I mean I, I'll take a call from my wife directly or family close family member. Everybody else you're gonna have to wait for a call up. And sometimes I'm expecting a call. And I don't know what the number is. That's coming in coming in on, and then I get tricked into it being a robo call, but so t mobile and Comcast and Martin or to combat robocalls. Okay. So just this last Wednesday, they announce a partnership and basically what they're doing is they're going to use an authentication system for when somebody is calling this, an actual human being so, yeah, what happens is, it's going to show up as a verified phone call coming to you. You're actually going give thing on your screen, this verified caller. Yeah. So 'cause we get calls. Now. And sometimes, you know, it'll say spam alert on my phone, you'll get this on your new one by the way, too familar, right? Oh, yeah. But if it's if it's actually a verified caller, it'll actually say that the phone number. That's calling you is verified. Yeah. Okay. So then you'll know that it actually is somebody who's trying to get a hold of you on the other side and not just a robo call. So, so that's gonna be kinda cool. And I'm hopeful that this technology will move across all networks, not just in t mobile and Comcast. Although this would be a selling point for them. I would imagine them to sell their service, right? Yeah. So yeah, so you can expect that coming at you sometime here in the near future. If your team mobile user right now you can probably start seeing that pretty shortly. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. We got thrown my notes today, Jim. Yeah, that's crazy. Anything in the news fron urine that you been curious about well, the big thing, this, you course, has been the deal with the press. Oh, yeah. The Mueller probe. And what else? Well, the the Notre Dame thing. Yeah. So the Mueller probe is interesting not to get into that. But, you know, would there even be a Mueller probe if there was no technology? That's a good question. I mean, does this saying they're saying that there are a couple of clues looking at the pro that whoever wrote it is an old school person because there is two spaces after the period between each sentence, something used to do with a typewriter but you don't do it with a cross still do it. Yeah. I am so old going. Yeah. I catch myself doing it sometimes. So I've noticed though on social media now. Especially like Twitter I'll just do one space now. Yeah. But it seems weird to me because what's a comma one space, right? Yeah. So had come on space pretty much. I mean that wasn't supposed to the reason for the common the period. Is that the periods of heartbreak any punctuation? Yeah. So. Yeah, it just seems I'm old school that way. And you'll weird when that goes on, but yeah, so Botts have been brought up a lot with the Miller report in, in all that stuff. So I guess I was going on is Russia was using bots to fake news. And then I about about one of our candidates and people in the other campers sharing. Yeah, yeah, it goes on both ways. Yeah. Right. It goes on both ways. But yeah but are you guilty? Then if you share, you know, and I call people out on this all the time 'cause they'll share fake news. Yeah. Whether whatever it is right? And then I'll go. And I'll pull something bag or message f percents. You know that really isn't true. Yeah. And think caught a few times doing that too. Yeah. You're shocked by it, though. Because your friend shared to you. Right. And I pull it off. I mean I shared the thing one time. Everybody thought Bob Dylan died. Yes. And I shared it in somebody a knowledge fake. It's a scam. So I pulled off. Yeah. Yeah. But it makes you feel fully because you didn't take the fifteen six it probably seconds of probably would take check it out. You know, so. Yeah, well Jim, it's a pleasure as always been a financial pleasure. You have you, you enjoy that. Anesthesia today. I will very much.

"And I think the other thing too. You know, you you're talking about a little bit of sophistication here, but anybody can go into a shop and create a mobile hotspot with any name. They want to people just go in there. And look, here's here's one that's open. I can just use that one. Right. I mean, I've seen people do that. They're in a they're in a place like a coffee shop, and they there's a secured, you know, unity get used him password for it or they're sitting out in the in the parking lot or whatever on a bench outside. Well, they don't they don't go into the hassle for they'll just go and all the business next door has a public wifi. So this log into that they have no idea you can sit in that. All the time actually over at pizza ranch. Okay. I'm Dan go over there from lunch break. Thanks, and I wanted to watch Netflix. Yeah. And as I don't wanna use my data for right? The one next door had, you know, open wife, right? But. Then I found out like it was a little touchy on MAC addresses. So sometimes I could connect couldn't. So eventually have found a MAC address that allowed me to connect. And then I would just tell my phone to be that mattress. Right. So I don't know if it tried to implement a little level of security after a while. But you know, it was so it became more liable for me once I started figuring out. Okay. Here the settings on my phone. I just changed that. Yup. Yup. But like, you said to you couldn't even whatever you want one of my pineapples when I'm in a hotel just for, you know, if we're doing a test, I have an open network called connect to this mom, you know, because it's like this stupid person. Right. Got an open network right to his right? And it's like, no, no that that's a honeypot. Yeah. Go ahead. Connect to it. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So. Yeah. I mean public wifi is a dangerous dangerous thing. So private internet services of EPA. And that you can is your fee for this one. There is what it's really low. Okay. And they always have coupons. You can get if you like Moto com. It's a which is part of the blog network, but they're always have four. Eighty five percent off a year or two years or whatever. But the thing about a VPN does that increase your data? Yep. So you're essentially you're connecting to the WI fi. But then you're using their service to actually get the traffic. So let's say you connect to my pineapple. I now see you next thing is you get your VPN. I know you're doing something. But I can't see what it is. And so that's the other thing that even if you are on a compromise network. It doesn't matter the bad guys won't potentially be able to decide. Right. Yeah. So it's very very important. I can't emphasize enough. How important this is that you're talking about or get something that's similar, but make sure that it's reputable as well because there's others that are out there that are relating that. They're doing this service, and they're stealing your data to be careful with that. Okay. So we're at the we have okay. One minute one minute one thirty second thing that you can throw at us. What I got the plug something. Yes town if anyone needs security services, I'm available so whether consulting or also a free agent at the moment. Okay. So if you're company is also looking to create the security team to be part of it. All right. Yeah. Contact Jordan area. Don't ought to get hold of him. Just contact us through the tech Rancho, Jordan. It's been a pleasure. This is really a great show today. Jim pleasures always. And we'll see everybody next week.

"Or secured type of things. So so moving away from that just a little bit too. You recommend folks use their smartphones to do their banking, and that type of stuff so anytime. Yeah. I mean, I I it's probably safer than most things, especially if you're connected through your provider. Right. You know? So if you're an AT and T variety, t mobile, whatever you connecting through a cell phone tower with your stuff than you're. Okay. If you're in public wifi. No, absolutely not I could do a whole show on on. Why you shouldn't use public wifi? That is scary. It is scary. And you never wanna use public wifi. If you are doing things that are again mission critical things that use in passwords for or whatever's. Yep. And probably the biggest thing so this there's there's three separate things you need to be concerned about with pub ceiling public WI fi first of all a lot of these places are not secure. So when you when you log onto the public wifi. Doug could be sitting across from me on his computer. And he's got a. Little little hacking program running on, and I've I've actually done this with somebody in not to do anything the ferry. I just wanted to see how easy this was to do. I was at a convention in Las Vegas. They had public wifi setup for the convention, and it was amazing when I was on there, and there were thousands and thousands of people logging onto their into their Bank. Yeah. They're in Vegas. And they wanted to see what they have left in their particular fund. The goal gambling with Keno tables. It was amazing. I just I was like you have got to be kidding me. This was this easy. And this is the gentleman that was sitting next to me. Oh, and we were talking about this. And he goes just watch this because he was he was warning me about not being on the public wifi. And I'm like, yeah. I would never be in public wifi here wall here. I got to little program right now. Just to show you how easy it is to act the stuff. That's crazy. That was last year. You know, Secondly, there's another thing called juice Jackie now are familiar with this. I have not heard that. Yeah. Jacking. This is this is scary. You you go into the airport you ever put your phone in to like a USB port or something in an airport. Wherever you're in town. They have a nice little kiosk set up for people wanna recharge their phones here in Bismarck, while at okay at the airport. Yeah. Okay. Right. Right. Okay. So people are so used to see in these. But most people don't realize that when you plug in your phone. You're also plugging in your phone to if there's a computer on the other side, and that's the new they're they're actually setting up a system where they can Jack into your own when you plug into him, so juice jacking has become a big big deal and people will set these little things up in public areas and people don't the people who are even are running like in the airport or whatever everybody scrambling right now to put ports up or actresses. So people can charge your phones and right plug their computers in or whatever at UC, these nice chairs now in airport lounges and everything else that you can plug into. Nobody knows what's going on. So there people are criminals are ultra putting these little ports up your phone or whatever into them, and they're stealing all your information from there. It's the craziest thing so you need to be concerned about that is well when you're traveling also when you're I always carry a battery pack with me in what I do is I plug in the battery pack into these juice jar into the Seattle, and then you plug in your phone or other tablet, whatever into the small batteries and keep your battery charge up all the time your portable battery that security with those are just very easy small devices. No bigger than a couple double A batteries that you can have charged up all the time. So that's what I do. Very nice. There was a third thing. I was getting to on on the public side. Don't use. Why Fido use wifi as wifi juice, jacking, Jews jacking? I don't remember what the other one is now thinking about a little bit. But ASO what I do with my cell phone is I used the hot spot for. So that's a good idea as well tapping into the local right free wireless right now, how is that different from the wifi the public wifi? So when you turn on a wifi hotspot you actually using your mobile carriers data plan. Okay. If you're with tea or whatever. And if you're going to pick something that's pretty secure I'm gonna I'm gonna pick them over the local coffee shop every time. Just because so that's why you do that. So I'm not saying that you can't use public wifi. Use public wifi all the time all the time. But I just don't use it. I'm not using it to type any passwords or whatever just have to be careful on that side of it. But if you're browsing, you know. I'll use it to. But I have a specific laptop that use. I won't use that laptop at home. Even for interesting certain deserves an extra layer protects. Sure, you have to be diligent with this stuff nowadays, and whatever works for you. Yeah. It's good that you've thought through this through dug in that you've got kind of a plan in place, you should have a plan in place for when you're traveling or you know, go to a coffee shop I have a Cup of coffee shops. I go to because they they use Google or AT and T or whatever their foundation for their wifi. So I know that this is the third thing it was getting too when you're traveling or when you go to public wifi hotspots. There are a lot of people now that are spoofing these spots and they create their own. So they will sit out in their car, for example, or house next door whatever, and they'll type in the name of a hotel, for example, as the SS ide-, the I. D for the router. Right. The wifi thing, and you you're in your hotel, and you'll you looking for the the WI fi like, oh, here's the name of the hotel. That's what I'm going to click into and you've not clicked into the hotels. You've clicked into that person's router that's across the street from the hotel, bingo, and they take everything that they can get their hands. Oh, they do fast. Yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely. So yeah, those are some things that you need to be concerned with your out there. So if you're in a hotel, for example, get the ID of the router or of the wifi that they have, you know, don't log in anybody else's at all because the others are probably looking to do something the ferry so. Yeah. So not a good thing Facebook another security breach with them as well. The company knowledge that as many six hundred million users passwords were stored in plain, text and accessible to twenty thousand employees over the last seven years, so to plain text is not

"Okay. I guess we gotta turn ESPN on this morning. Right. Yeah. The federal government, right? Right. And doing exactly exactly cutting well lawnmower, and I think that they have I think this is by choice that these men do this because they are they know that they're not going to survive many years because it's very toxic chemicals that they're working with to remove these precious metals from these phones and other things, and I think they just make this choice for their families. I mean, this is a sacrifice making to editor author family. Yes. Yeah. Exactly. That's exactly what it's about. Because you know when you live in. You know, you look at your great, grandparents, your grandparents, your parents have all been impoverished their entire lives. And this is a chance for them to maybe do a little better for the family's sake. So I I mean, that's not something that I would say that I'm totally agreement with but I understand why they do that. And I can't do they what do they call it the nine twenty nine savings account that you can set up for college funds for your kids? Okay. Have that here? Yeah. Yeah. But in China, I can't imagine. Right. Right. Right. Right. Well, anyway, we won't get into too much of the politics of these type of things, but let it is something that when you think about you know, when you throw your phone into a recycling bin, for example, maybe it's not a bad thought to ask you know, who's recycling. This phone how how does that process going is this going to some at one of these villages in China and what the process of recycling, right, right? Or is it is it the United. States facility that's doing this. And it's a safe acidity for the people that are working on it. You know? I mean, those are the questions that I think we should probably this is one of the dirty truths about the about technology nowadays is that there's a lot of value in these old phones, for example, because precious minerals, especially metals in them, right? So in this right up there. We're looking at one point four billion with a B year annually. Yes. Yeah. That's a lot of phone. Yep. So you take that over the last ten years. That's fifteen billion phones have been manufactured over the last ten years and a lot of them. You know, like dia four at one time was an amazing phone, right? But by today's standards is nothing so dial. Right. So we we we we all recycle our phones every two or three years. That's just how it works. I mean, the end, but the industry is kind of trained us to do that. Right. You still got a flip phone? No, okay. You do have a smart device is laying right here. I see that looks like a Google or an Android. It is. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Did get into the iphone? Yeah. I didn't either. I'm more of a and I think, you know, it's interesting. I've the debate on I phone over Android. I'm surprised actually in our neighborhood. How many people own in our own iphones? But the debate is always about usability. Right. I think people think that the iphone is just a little bitter. You know as far as usability goes developers love the Android because they can develop things can make they can make things with this. Exactly. So most of your geeky friends, probably have Android, most of your non geeky friends. Probably have I phone. Yeah. That's generally how it is. Yep. A status thing. Yeah. Yeah. Probably a little bit in some in some communities. It is you know, and speaking of that. So the street in wars are kicking off even in more, you know?

Julia Roberts some show. It's going to be a net flix. Yeah. It is. Yes, it is become the next next. Big thing. You know streaming. I have to say, I can't even watch regular television anymore. You stream. Roku wise. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean television, I don't have cable and anything why when you can stream right? Jim same you? I do a lot of streaming used the paper view or thing on my TV. But I stream mostly on Netflix. So what is it about streaming that appeals to you? I just think that choice is better. I mean, commercial TV, basically, it's the least common denominator in terms of the quality. And the availability. I mean you. Yeah. The choices cl-. Yeah. Almost gotten better. It has gotten better over the years, and it has. You know, we're all enough talent shows talking about this morning in the office seven channels and nothing on that too. Yeah channel. Thank you. Bruce. So I started watching Ben's binge-watch. Here's a couple of weeks ago and three or four hours just fly by. You don't even have to click once you start at just. Yeah. Right. Right. Yeah. I go surfing through Netflix. I find all kinds of weird offbeat interesting. I'm a documentary guy. I love them documentaries. I've found one over the weekend the greatest hoaxes of all time and like they did a whole hour. Remember the Hitler diaries back in the some guy allegedly said he found the Hitler diaries from a plane crash and those a whole whole hour about how these these top-flight journalists some of the best journalists on the planet who worked for these papers in London and a paper in Germany how they got fooled. A lot of wishful thinking of all, but it's a great lesson in psychology. How Pinson and taken in by up. Yep. Yep. I guess we pulled a diaries pulled the joke national day calendar figures on April Fools day and got a call from a reporter from the New York Times to verify it. And after after she spoke for about a minute wanted me to comment on it. I was like well, you realize this as an April Fool's dog. And all it was.

"Back. Follow the guru of geek everywhere. He goes poster comments or questions at the tech ranch dot com. Once again, your guru of geek, Marlow Anderson for Jimmy got any photos online, quite a few social media got Dave about you got any photos online nine nine. I'm aware of unless you put some on there for you. But okay. But I mean most people do. Catch this. This is interesting. And this is something that you really should pay attention to Google plus closing April fourth K. So you're gonna it impacts a lot of people because they use it for Google juice for their, you know, whoville Jews for their websites, and that type of thing, but but will impact some people flicker those the other one a how many of you have you ever used flicker? So flicker you better get if you get photos on flicker you there get him off because tomorrow's it. Oh. Tomorrow's it. So this is this is the point. I'm getting to is that as much as you think Google plus is backed by Google now, you might think that Facebook would never go away or Twitter, or Snapchat or anything that use out there for for, you know, your stuff, but they're just companies. And you know, and it's aboard a people or finances or whatever that may just say, hey, we can't afford to store all your photos anymore. Bush down, you know, or whatever looks like policy against them to. I mean, don't you have any protection gall? Do you sign anything that says that they have the right to shut this down shirt? That's the ULA and user licensing agreement when you when you sign up of any of these softwares, or whatever I mean, they're not they're not liable for any of the stuff that you put up on their. It's your stuff, right? You're just using them to hold their your stuff. Right. So I mean, if you really want to keep it, you need to have it on a hard drive someplace or whatever, that's yours. And even that isn't full, of course. Well, remember that I bought that little that little memory strike. You can download all your photo right in there too. Which is just a good idea to have back. Cup. If you're, you know, not storing I'm a big fan of us in Google photos. Yeah. I mean, I it's kinda my backup and and probably trust that way too much myself because I don't want to store all that stuff on my on my phone now, if I if I lost them, I don't know if it'd be the end all the end all but because a lot of all the photos, I take don't mean anything right now. I I take photos when I when I can't remember where I parked. So I take a photo of the role. I'm in crime in. And, you know, boarding passes are all photos and all this stuff nowadays because it's just easy easy to access these things when you're traveling, right? And have you or if you have a short, you know, memory like me or what have you rate? So so it's just it's just great for that. But, but there are photos that people take that people wanna keep you know. So you just you should really have a policy in place because you just never know. I mean, these are two examples flicker and Google that are going by the wayside. And I think you just need to make sure that you have that you don't put all all your photos, one of one basket, so to speak and all your videos, get you should really have a plan where things if they're important to you. You should have redundant backup done of those those things. So I just wanted to throw those out at you as well space. Oh my goodness. What I'm not talking when I'm talking space. I'm talking outerspace Maine's things are really really heating up. Up actually before we get to that. I wanted to. This was interesting to me to before we get into discussion on space to leading fact checking agencies have stopped the work with Facebook. So the Associated Press and Snoop's research. Nope, how we wanna pounce S N P E S, which is where I always go to pull the plug on their relationship with Facebook dealing blow to its efforts to fight fake news, so snow and S N P E S dot com. So you, and I'm sure you've been a target of these things to Dave. And I know you have gym where people send you out things. You know? Hey, the weather is never been this cold, and blah, blah, will that probably not true. Yeah. Yeah. So you can hop onto snow, and you can actually check the things out. You know, colder is colder here that a blue. Yeah. Exactly. Yep. Or you know, and a lot of things with the fake news with the celebrities that die, you know, you can check them out there. That's always going on Bob Dylan died online about ten years ago. Damn Dylan dying, man. He said, that's that can't be. Yeah. I get alert here last week that supreme court Justice Ruth gate. Berg. She guide. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What you didn't see shit in? Because there was nothing that night when I got home news. Newsflash. But still a great place to go. Check this stuff out, you know. And anyway, they've pulled back their support trying to fight the fake news scenario that's going on with Facebook. So really, it's it's I love and somebody sends out a big news item turns out to be five years old. Yes. Like, Eric Clapton is sicker. Whatever I the other day. Yeah. And I guess if you're going to this is the thing I'm kind of getting to is that if you're gonna post something or we tweet something or repulse something from somebody else. Check it. I plas, you know, unless you're the originator of the news, right? You don't know. Right. Or if you can trust the person that, you know, or or if it's if it's news about the the person that they're posting a good example be like, you know, nationally counter was featured on ESPN, right? Right. Well, I know that to be true and people who follow me know that it's probably going to be true both. Okay there. Right. But if I'm going to report on something about Dylan, I have I don't know who Bob Dylan is personally, you know, or or. You know what I mean? So before I read, and I do this guy goes me bitch. Vich store. Yes. The actually caught this guy going guard. You'll fight with Bob Dylan governor a fight with the guy who's was going through his garbage.
