Will America Return to the Fundamentals?
"Boomer generation of which I am a member. Grew up in an America that was obviously had issues. No society in history has not had issues. I mean, obviously in the 60s, Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War, by the end of the 60s, Martin Luther King assassination Robert Kennedy, what year was Robert Kennedy assassinated? Was he in the 60s as well? I think so. I mean, there were a lot of the watts riots. When would the watts riots also 60s? So believe me, they were issues. But the fundamental American society was holding very strong. And then gradually dissolved. Beginning with honoring of parents, don't trust anyone over 30, that was the motto of the dissolution of the traditional America. But gave people on the 2030s, 40s, 50s in the United States peace, for the most part. Not for everybody.

"As she a headline last night on mediaite, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. makes nutso claim to Tucker Carlson that the COVID vaccine appears to be killing more people than all vaccines combined. Here's what Robert F. Kennedy said on yesterday's Tucker Carlson today that streams on Fox nation. There have been 17,000 as reported to theirs on the COVID vaccines. And that's more in the last 8 months than all of the from all vaccines, the billions and billions of vaccines combined over the past 30 years. Of this vaccine appears to be killing more people than all vaccines combined. There's more reports of vaccination. The beast revs up when they hear that they say that's a nut so claim. That's a wacky claim. That the COVID vaccines have led to 17,000 deaths reported to VAERS that's more than just 8 months more deaths than all vaccines, the billions and billions of vaccines combined over the past 30 years. And I'm thinking, well, that's significant, you know? That's something people have to ponder, right? No, no, no. The beast says you may not. That's a crazy wacky claim. The article at mediaite says the anti vaxx Kennedy who claims he is not anti vax, cited the CDC's frequently misunderstood vaccine adverse event reporting system known as VAERS. To back up his claim. The article says Tucker Carlson himself has touted numbers from VAERS when discussing the apparent death rate from coronavirus vaccines on his show. Well, media I talked to some health guys some doctor whether this Tucker Carlson's claim about Varys is accurate. The answer was it's not accurate. There's was intended to cast a wide net to capture any possible or potential complication that even has the remotest possibility of being related to the vaccine. Any adverse event is considered reportable. Now, I'm like, so they're saying, don't believe you're lying eyes. Well, we're casting a wide net. Oh, you mean like calling a car accident, a COVID death? If the person in the ER who dies, has COVID in their system because that's what they've done. You mean like that? Okay. I get it. I guess they do that. But what if half the number that's been reported to VAERS is right. What if 8000 have died or 9000? I mean, why is that a nutshell claim?

"Washington And I'm Leela faulted in Culver City California Video streaming platform YouTube announced today that it is expanding its ban on vaccine misinformation The company now says all false information about approved vaccines will be removed from its platform And PR science correspondent Jeff brownfield has been tracking vaccine misinformation and joins us now to talk about what this band will mean hey Jeff Hi there Leila So let's start with today's announcement what's YouTube actually doing here So it's basically expanding what it defines as vaccine misinformation Up until now many social media platforms have really been focused on COVID-19 vaccines But of course anti vaccine activism predates COVID by many decades actually and before COVID it was very much focused on stopping childhood vaccination against things like measles and chickenpox Now YouTube says it's noticed more false claims about those childhood vaccinations in recent months And so it's decided that those sorts of videos should be taken down as well And by the way we should mention that YouTube's parent company Google is a financial supporter of NPR So what does this mean in practical terms Well it's caused some of the biggest promoters of vaccine misinformation to be completely kicked off YouTube Basically in particular a gentleman by the name of Joseph mercola who runs a multi-million dollar natural supplements business And Robert F. Kennedy junior who for years now has been a pretty major anti vaccine activist The center for countering digital hate which tracks vaccine misinformation has had these two at the top of their disinformation doesn't A list of some of the worst spreaders of these bad vaccine takes And that group the center for calorie digital hate announced that around half a million subscribers are no longer going to see anti vaccine content as a result of YouTube's move here So that sounds like a pretty good news for anyone concerned about making sure scientifically accurate information about vaccines reaches the public right Yeah yeah I mean I spoke to Imran Ahmed Chief executive of the center And he says that he really applauds YouTube's announcement It's the right moral decision to take as a company that profits from content And beyond that he expects this is going to have a real impact on those who've lost YouTube today as a platform Damage their ability to spread their message to grow their audiences and more importantly for them to make money But he also says this is really far from the end of this whole situation Anti vaccine advocates still have plenty of ways to spread misinformation And what ways are those Well well YouTube took action for while YouTube took action today the center for countering digital hate says Facebook and Instagram are still hosting some pretty big accounts They estimate the disinformation doesn't has millions of followers on those two platforms And then there are a whole bunch of other less regulated platforms out there places like gab and parler and telegram and these folks are still finding an audience there But an even bigger outlet might be right wing media So for example Merkel has made some recent appearances on the show of former Trump adviser Steve Bannon He's made a whole bunch of false claims about vaccines there And both Joseph mercola and RFK junior said in statements to NPR that they are absolutely going to keep spreading their message any way they can for them this is really a free speech issue So what's the consequence of anti vaccine advocates being able to flourish in these other spaces Imran Ahmed and others say it's a lot better than allowing these folks to continue to grab really huge audiences on major platforms like YouTube But I think there's something else happening And that's that people who spend time in these alternate spaces on the Internet and particularly on politically conservative spaces in the Internet are being bombarded with more of the stuff than ever before And the consequences that that are real according to polling from Kaiser Democrats are now the most vaccinated group in America and Republicans are second to last just ahead of the uninsured So it's create the situation where how you vote is most likely to determine whether you're vaccinated And pair science correspondent Jeff brownfield thank you Thank you very much Support for all tech considered comes from cyber reason a cybersecurity company dedicated to ending the fear of ransomware While attackers hold businesses to ransom cyber recent works to protect them more at cyber recent dot com slash ransom And from C three AI C three AI software enables organizations to use artificial intelligence at enterprise scale solving previously unsolvable problems C three AI this is enterprise AI Afghanistan is one of the world's poorest countries the pandemic caused the economy to contract fighting in recent years and uncertainty about the future made investors jittery And this year financial stress and a drought added to Afghanistan's woes Then the Taliban took over in mid August as NPR's John ruic explains it created the perfect storm and the country is on the.

"But i think it's worth thinking about like vaccine hesitancy and the reasons behind it and how some of our own actions may contribute unintentionally vaccine hesitancy. And how to think about that. Yeah it's such a good point about vaccine hesitancy. I mean you know. I was like soon is a vaccine was offered to me and i could get it. I was like i in line. I was really excited about it. Someone really really loves vaccines. I of course got j. and j. and so i'm thinking at some point about do i need a booster but it's even like the thought process of that. You're thinking okay win. would i get another shot. And how many days. Could i take off if i have side effects and not look at my busy schedule and i have the luxury of taking days off. But you're right. There's a ton of people who just for the sake of the fact that they can't take work off or they don't have easy access to the vaccine or someone hasn't knocked on their door and told him about it that they may not take it. So it's not all these as you said the the georgia cross it Crew but i do think the reason we talk about that so much more. Tommy is because republican politicians have now made this an identity issue which is what they've made so many other issues now so that it's not based in sort of self interest or what's good for you or what's gonna make you feel better what's going to save your life. Even it's all about your identity as a partisan and that sort of drowns out all the other sensible conversations. I don't you think. Yeah i know people in my life. I friends of friends who were were nowhere. Close to being republicans but they were scared by internet research.

I want you to know what he's doing. We have the head of the Civil rights division of the Justice Department who is a flat out her name is Clark as I recall flat out racist, she said, and written some of the most unbelievable stuff. I think Susan Collins voted for confirmation to but nonetheless, there she is. And having secured that position. At the request of Biden and this attorney general. What's happening now? According to Yahoo News, John Ward. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Said that the Department of Justice will dramatically increase its focus on preventing voter suppression. Now you have to understand something. Voter suppression for the Democrat party means what Means state legislatures having rational voting systems in place. Not anarchy. So he's going to increase its focus on preventing voter suppression by doubling the number of lawyers in the civil rights division. In response to a rash of lawsuits or look Excuse me. Laws that have been made made it harder to vote in many states. Now you have to understand how lousy the media Made it harder to vote in many states. So if I want to leave Virginia and vote in, say, Maryland and they say you can't because I'm not a citizen of Maryland. You see, Maryland has just made it harder for me to vote in Maryland. Mr. Producer you understand? It's just disgusting. Our media have really killed this country. We will use all existing provisions to ensure that we protect every qualified Americans seeking to participate in our democracy, Garland said in one of his Castro like speeches Garland compared his action to that taken by former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who said the Justice Department needed a lot more lawyers to combat laws and said says nothing to do. With what Robert Kennedy had to do during segregation. This is so outrageously disgusting. They're going to double the lawyers and the civil rights division and unleash them on our country. Harass the state legislatures try and push this H R one s one into law, forcing states to adopt them. Because Congress couldn't pass it. That is exactly what's going on here.

The plants that were building the wind plants in the solar plants are gas plants. What kind of game would be played? I mean, Well. We're basically just being fed alive. For instance, you'll hear about Germany running on wind solar 35% right now, 50% of their power their days this past summer when the Germans were generating 80% of their power from the sun, But Germany is still Europe's largest consumer of coal oven and deserted you and demands the quarter before that, But then the cell hell there goes to till touch both. Hmm. Only a small fraction of their energy actually comes from wind and solar. In fact, Germany just built a large terminal to import natural gas from the United States. Elon Musk, the founder of Kessler, When he announced his Gigafactory battery plant, he said it with power itself with wind and solar energy through a combination of geothermal, wind and solar. It will produce all the energy that it needs. But in fact it has lines connecting it to the same electrical grid that we're all connected to. Electric cars, wind turbines and solar panels.

Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.
A Song For Peace

The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat.

He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer.

Kennedy and you know what if he hates that you know what she campaigns against that because and and to his credit he just got the book like crazy and he has been so good on this and I I think what I did was I think I gave I opened up a new window in his brain on the the biological question because he's been great about the mercury in the aluminum and the other chemicals and things but Judy really comes from a biological background and so and and I think what I contributed to the book was this question because I I would always question Judy you know about the bigger picture in so you know when she first found out that this mouse virus had jumped into people who have chronic fatigue syndrome you know and I said well where they've come from well I don't know and I did the research I found out that vaccines were grown in mouse brain tissue descent and then I ask the bigger question should we ever grow virus as an animal tissue and then inject them into human beings because if we know that our own DNA is about seven percent virus well we can assume that animals are about the same so does that mean.

Doug Jones's impeachment vote was more courageous than Romney's
"Senator. Doug Jones of Alabama casts. Perhaps the most important vote of his Senate career. He voted to convict president trump on both articles of impeachment. It could cost him his seat this November but the man elect to fill jeff sessions. Seat doesn't care. He says it was the right thing to do. Senator Jones. Thank you for coming back to the PODCAST. No my pleasure enjoyed it last time. And I'm sure I will this time. Well you have had a a momentous few few weeks and by that I mean your vote on both articles of impeachment to convict President Trump and in your speech and on the floor of the Senate you said there will be so there were so many that will simply look at what I'm doing today and say it is a profile in courage it is not it is simply a matter of right and wrong were doing right is not a courageous act. It is simply following your oath and I bring up that quote because it was it was stirring during And cheered it on in a tweet but President Trump won Alabama by twenty eight points in two thousand sixteen eighteen and according to the morning console poll that I just looked at in Jan January his approval rating is sixty percent. Yeah I believe that. By the way the highest in the country. You don't believe that I've seen a number of different things. I don't believe it's not too far off but I do believe it's lower lower than that and what that concept poll also missing out a little bit is negatives have been an gradually growing so that gap is narrowing a considerably. Well I bring I bring up. The election totals in that particular poll result to ask it just a blunt question. Did your vote to convict on the two articles of impeachment. Seal your defeat this November. I don't think so. I not not by any stretch I think that people you know an Alabama they're gonNA it's one thing to support a president and their policies it's another thing to simply the acknowledged right from wrong and people in Alabama hard working folks. They know the difference between right and wrong. They may disagree with whether or not What what he did rose to the level of impeachment? But I don't think it seals the deal whatsoever. I think people are going to be looking at my record. They're going to see a record for people in Alabama on kitchen table issues just like ran in ran on. And that's the message that we're going to get across and the other thing too is I think you know people are going to see that. Vote as someone who had a lot of I put a lot of time minute. Put a lot of thought in and I really. This was an analysis that I did and at the end of the day. I came down and I'm going to be able to explain that I'll tell you Jonathan. I'll just candidly ever ran into A business leader and I won't go into detail so that people can't really identifying but he's I've known him for a long time he's a Republican business leader from an Alabama in Birmingham He was on the plane with me yesterday. And as we were getting off waited the jetway and he walked me down the jetway and he said Doug he said I just really admire you for voting your convictions and I wanNA help you in the campaign pain and got the address to send a check for the campaign. And I think there's going to be a lot of that in Alabama We'll see how it goes. How hard was was it to make that decision? Because I alluded to the fact that I sent out a tweet after watching your your speech. And everyone's given a lot of plaudits to Senator Senator Mitt Romney who should and they should that because he's a republican because he was the the twenty twelve Republican presidential nominee. But he's also from Utah and he's also wealthy and he's someone for he doesn't need this job and he. It does not stand the possibility of losing his seat because of that. Vote and as you said in your speech you know people say what you've done is profiling courage but yours was the the the more courageous vote because you put your career on the line for this vote. How hard was it to make this decision? It let me answer it this way. Okay because I I've said this to people over the last few days. It was not hard from a political standpoint because I honest to God did not consider it from a political standpoint. Okay I mean I'm sixty five years old. I've only been senator for three of those sixty five years. Okay I was a lawyer so this is you know I'm I'm I'm not that career politician that put that calculation in there like that but what I am is a lawyer and I've been trained as a lawyer and I've been trained to do the right thing I've been and trained to try to put the best foot forward for the constitution and what the founders I thought said and what they believed in the and try to put the pieces of that puzzle together so the difficulty of this of this vote had nothing to do with politics having said that it was still a difficult vote. I mean you know. I'm had to make a decision that to cast a vote to remove the president of the United States duly elected. Despite what a lot of people may say around all that he was duly elected he's GonNa be on the ballot. This was a weighty constitutional issue and so when I said that in by the way the quote that you gave was not something that I had prepared you know after we made the announcement which was about thirty minutes before I went to the floor. You know I started getting text messages. I saw twitter blowing up and people saying that in whatever and I'm sitting in the in the chamber listening to Kamla and listening listening to Maggie Hassen and I'm thinking about this and I realized you know people are saying things like that and I'm sitting at John. F Kennedy's desk now. I already have the quote quote from Robert Kennedy and so I'm thinking you know this is just Naronha. Won't people to think that I'm some. You know super courageous just got. I'm just doing the right thing. And so that that was something that I just inserted ad libbed on my own because really believed it and I'd been saying it's been consistent assistant with what I've said from the very beginning. I'M GONNA follow my oath both to defend the constitution and to do impartial justice right in that second oath to do impartial justice. Was this specific. Oath that you that all senators had to write to swear to as a part of the impeachment impeachment trial impeachment process. Did I read correctly. You took hundreds of pages of notes math four hundred thirty close to them. I think handwritten or you know I. They were all handwritten written. What were you? What were you noting? Well I was taking. It was almost like a stenographer. I mean when I'm in a trial my my my my training is a trial lawyer is to take notes because I am most of my clients never had the money to do like real time transcripts in those days as and so. I'm writing as fast as I can so that I can go in and I can look. I can prepare for cross examination or do whatever I need to do. And I've got two different different kind of pins. I got a blue pin because always right and blue and I got my blue Pimm it. I got up. Read one sitting over here because as I'm writing is I'm listening. Something's going to pop in my brain and going to put a star under and I'm going to outline and they wanNA ride in the margin question or a comment or something like that and so. That is my way of just reinforcing. Being the facts I wanted to know those fact. I had a pretty good handle on those with all the research and that we did leading up to this because we started working on this before it became an impeachment inquiry. We started working on this. And so that's what I did. It was just one of those things to try to make sure that because at the end of the day on new however voted I was. I'm going to be called on to justify that vote and I wanted to be able factually to to make that argument argumentatively to make the argument and the best way to do that is to write it. Write it write it write it. Write it and not just sitting there listening and start daydream enough
How to Find Work-Life Balance in the Creative Industry
"My name is Robert Kennedy and I work as is a freelance creative running my own design studio in Munich. Germany and I specialize in focus on motion design but also do traditional graphic graphic design and do a lot of public speaking and teaching here and there You're also a model from what I can see from welcomes ads. So that's part of your credentials now and fans of the show fans of the show know who you are because they've seen you on youtube so if your new lesson and you find this conversation to be super interesting and I highly encourage you to go back and watch those two episodes but for everybody else. That's new welcome aboard and on today's episode. We're going to talk a lot about work life balance and how to family family men you and I or people who have families how you manage active career so the way we're GonNa talk about this is we're going to I jump into like what was life like for you. You prior to having kids and having a family like just the the work you the young person who's really driven ambitious. What was that like? What was that life like for you well life before kids was certainly massively different in many ways I was doing the traditional hustle all day every day as much as I can I have I have the fortunate position position to to love my work? You know like just as you in any hopefully most of of creative people love love their work and I don't take this for granted I always thought it's it's it's a privilege to just go in and be excited to create something you and always be challenged to learn a new tool or new technique or try this. Try by that so I was. I was working a lot and I didn't really consider it as work although I found it to be strenuous at times especially during my internship in Hamburg where I essentially went from for example from doing five times a week sports to once in six months and also having to fridge with things not looking so well after a few days or weeks. You know so This was a time of of Late shifts and working really long hours hours than this was during studies. So this carried over after even after I finish my studies and moved to Munich so I was working super late nights. I was always a Late late night person. You know I still have trouble getting off getting getting up in the morning and really get the engine going so was more like okay. Yeah let's let's start work from ten eleven something like this way into the night and and this is where thrived really was no email. No no phone nothing Two and three and the best ideas pop up on this. Try this technique so Yeah I was. I was working really long hours and learned lots doing. I'm doing that and Really appreciate that time a lot. How old how is your way before? Yeah I WANNA share share licenses but how what years is just so everybody. Everybody gets a sense of where we are in history so right now I'm forty I was hang on was fifty. It was twenty five during my internship. I graduated I think I was twenty six or twenty seven graduated from from university so But I started work in free ninety even before studied so I think right after doing my what would the equivalent of high school I think at twenty I started basically To freelance before studying. So this this been on from I'm twenty to thirty five I would say so I will. Oldest is no five years. I was thirty five when he was born so Think for about and now for about fifteen years. The Hustle was pretty intense. I and and a lot of fun too but so different to rain a lot of long nights all right so when you say you're working and being inspired to in the morning what does a typical day like when when you get up when you go to sleep and did you do this five days a week or seven Sunday's week back in the days back in the day back in the day it was it was much more structured. It was was it was. It's funny actually. Because you know when I was younger it was basically like you say the dream of freelancer. You know you know just you know not not giving a damn you know still of course being disciplined and getting getting stuff done and finishing projects on time. Of course this was. This was obvious is an absolute necessity but still Going onto the basketball court playing basketball Coming back late in the afternoon working so it was not really. It was not really a schedule was like going with the flow. And just doing whenever inspiration hits me and So it was mostly flair tried to work five five days a week but for me weekends weren't as holy as they are right now. You know it was. Yeah you know what it was Saturday. Hey someone has a cool idea we can. We can do something with UV lights and fluorescent colors and we can film it enclosed oven ns through that under Saturday. No one's GonNa Bother and it was just you know whenever whenever you want and whenever inspiration in the Mus- hit you when I would at was it sounded like you were just is living in the moment and just leaving to whatever your heart and passion took you and I think that's a really cool and special period in your life and of course all things exchange but before we get there so I'm getting this now. Whatever you felt inspired to do you did if you wanted to play basketball you would if you wanted to stay up to four in the morning working on some new technique make you would do that? And you didn't have to feel guilty or anything else because it was just about you and your personal and professional development right correct now okay super all right how how how was it for you. Not that different so okay. When I got out of school in Nineteen ninety-five? I started my the company just a few months after graduation. And you know when you start a company. There's a lot of responsibilities and the kind of company has started. I almost had a staff almost from from the jump when I got one and there was more work to do than I could do. Admittedly just reached out to people and started to bring them in. It wasn't fulltime but it was fulltime freelance people working for me kind of early on that meant that the hustle game was really strong. I do want to tell you this because eventually couple of years after I did get married and I was working With my friend and my girlfriend and she became my wife but for those I think five of years I didn't take any holidays. There was no vacation it was just work all the time. If I wasn't working on a project I was either reading or developing myself itself as a person so there was a lot of things I needed to learn about. Motion Design about titled Design About Even Hotter Structure a company and the technical aspects suspects like back in the day because it's a nineteen ninety five when we were able to connect to computers together and share a printer and my mind was blown. All talk doesn't and even either net or just up and so that was my life just spending time reading macworld magazine just thumbing through things and seeing all I need router. That's that's what a router does so our own. It person delivery boy. I was the designer the art director every role that had to be fulfilled. I did them all all. So we're talking about some serious nights. And just like ECO. You said there were nights when I was literally tending the rendering because it took so long to render back in the day computers were not fast enough and I would just wake up a couple hours. Check the rendering and fall asleep on the floor next to my computer it was pretty rough and that that was the hustle grind

did we get to this moment you know Kenny I think here in nineteen seventy four were starting to learn important rule about recessions anything can send an efficient economy into a spiral is an outside shock we can't control that is a less fancy way of saying and exhaustiveness shock which is more than See Way of saying something outside the normal happens that suddenly makes everything more expensive a hundred years ago the best theory about recessions was that they were caused by sunspot what's literal spots and flares on the sun that would randomly send waves of radiation towards the earth leading to sick crops and then businesses is failing and then banks closing I know it sounds ridiculous and of course it is scientifically wrong and yet that is basically what happened this year but instead of the sun it's OPEC the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries yes last year nineteen seventy-three OPEC declared an oil embargo against nations that supported Israel that included the United States so the price of gasoline shot up in this country then came the rationing then came the endless lines at the pump then eventually came this very angry man in Queens we call up a young professor who was working on his first book about Recessions Professors Todd New of Cornell College Hello Todd everything in this country that touches gasoline has gotten more expensive which is everything and as a result these shocks have greatly increased the cost the production that greatly increase the cost of doing business and so it's not the fact that people aren't willing to buy it's fact that firms aren't producing like they used to particularly they're not willing to produce at the same prices that they were producing before now as we twist this actual fast Ah American gas tank

CEO Let's talk a little bit about your theme this year it's called what's next why what's next and what is next so what's next is that so we're looking for faster growth in the future then in the past and but what's next is the growth the economy goes for the stock market what do you mean economy and and what I think is that when you think about the turmoil that's taking place in the stock market now and everyone is afraid that's you know and people have higher amounts of cash and they've ever had before in Europe they have negative interest rates people so concerned is eighteen central banks can in Rio do there The interesting United States are have been going down the way I think about it though is that the stock market today is pretty much the same values nations that it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and sixteen point six times earnings or sixteen point five times earnings then then was amidst turmoil you had the city's on fire the national guard the streets are trying to keep law and order yet the Vietnam War protests women's rights protesting so so everything was it's a mess but but really sticks and the assassination of President Kennedy swapping my office about I have a lot of younger people mouse and they said tell me about this assignations sixties and people said well John Kennedy said anyone else and they said I don't know it was Martin Luther King in one thousand nine six eight and Robert Kennedy Nineteen Sixty eight they tried to get George awesome so so there was turmoil and it was a concern that that the country was going to survive but the stock market then was thousands on Al Jones is now twenty six or twenty seven thousand twenty six times the economy then was eight hundred and fifty billion is now twenty one point three trillion twenty five times so all you had to do this believe that this country was going to survive and invest then and you would have made twenty five hundred money and so I think that what's going to happen in the next fifty years of course I'll be one hundred twenty six by then and you can reach me at Barron Funds Dot Com they will know where uh-huh and but but I'm thinking about the next the next fifty years it's going to be similar to the last fifty years that'd be twenty five times or money if you invest now and and and even better is that interest rates today or one and a half percent one point six percent for ten years they're normally four and a half percent for ten years you have platform investments now so it used to be when I was young and you wanted to make money you'd build a factory for a million dollars or hotel and then maybe eight hundred thousand one hundred fifty thousand after you take the risk of putting up a million and so but now you've you've come into capital late business you have technology I therefore other people giving you money writing off have platform built you could be a licensor people could be using your business in the cloud and then all of a sudden you start getting revenues and that revenue you just seventy eighty ninety percent margin that's worth more than a earnings per share company without having put up the capital people finding some of these two so you can do it exactly so it's capital low interest rates the technology technology is making businesses grow faster because and and also it's it's making your costs be lower and then knowledge knowledge is growing the fastest pace than it's ever grown and it used to be one hundred years ago that knowledge doubled every hundred years and then after World War Two it was twenty five years and now it's every eighteen months and with the Internet of things going knowledge is going to double according to IBM every eight hours or twelve hours knowledge humankind but when when you look at our growth that we've seen to this point a lot of people say our economy is just stuck in a slower growth economy we're never going to be able to grow faster pace we've seen it pick up a little bit over the last several you ears but why isn't reflected in the numbers why isn't the economic growth stronger because you're right information technology all of these different ways of increasing our productivity are it's not reflected in government numbers right now people are afraid well you're in one of these the economy doesn't go like this it goes like this and and so the result to that whenever goes down people say this is it this is the end I better get out and so all these people watch remote show in the morning and everyone talks about well the stock market invested

"By the Robert F Kennedy center of all knowledge. We're back on the cutting edge of societal evolution. I look at this. See that it is something like more than forty one percent of New Yorkers say they can't afford to live in the city, and they plan to leave. And then there is an accompanying list of the fastest shrinking cities in the country. And you know, what's happening here. A bunch of people are fleeing cities that they have participated in creating the political circumstances. They voted for bunch of limbs raise taxes and choked off economic growth, they've raised real estate prices. And now, they ain't gonna leave and they leave and they go to other states, presumably, no income tax dates, and they bring with them the same destructive political ideas, and they started collecting the same people that destroyed the places that they're leaving. Forty one percent say they can't afford to live in New York City and planned to leave. It's probably not that high that will actually move out of there. But what if it was? And then this doesn't surprise me at all half of Americans don't know the freedoms in the first amendment. Not the first ten not the Bill of rights half of Americans. Don't know the the first amendment freedoms. It's just it's sad. It is an I don't know for how long this has been the case. It's not new all of this is a slow degradation. It's a slow deterioration. In education that is just chipping away at the moral and political fabric and the foundation that is always kept the country together. It's always provided the elements of things that unified us. And those things are being whittled away. One in five are not familiar with the Bill of rights. I don't even know what it is not the specifics, but they don't even know Bill o'riley wrote one in five or not twenty percent don't have any idea. What even with the Bill of rights is? Anyway,.
Thanksgiving: Prepare for the busiest travel time of the year
"Was traveling today were you traveling Allen. No, actually, I tried to rent a car, and there was no way to rent a car, and they wanted to charge me five hundred dollars. So I cancelled it. Oh, good for you. So where are you spending thanksgiving week weekend? Well, I'm sending it up in New York state where my family and actually I've been New York City right now. Where there's a lot going on. What can I say? By the way. No, I've not begin. I do eat fish. But I had a pet Turkey named Pablo which is Turkey in Spanish, and he broke my nose when he tried to a way after I was talking and kissing. Only you Ellen. I love it that after he Africa back. I had my nose fix, obviously. And then he died a natural death. And then I had impact determined and he lives at the bottom of my stairs in lily, Dale, New York, which of course, dead people are too should come into your radio show from Idaho. I know I really wanna do it there because I've read stories about it, you know, about it. And I am we're going to make that happen. I want to come and do that. I wanna do that for the listeners would love. And of course, then you can meet Pablo. I I like it. We're gonna make it happen. I promise you that's going to be my twenty nineteen. So we're going to do that. So in Washington, the big story, but really reverberating outside of Washington is President Trump and the criticism of you know, the rare criticism of supreme court chief Justice John Roberts. And believe that Robert Kennedy. Well, what he basically said Robert Justice what Trump tweeted out back. In fact, there was a Obama judge and the ninth circuit that permit. Compare very very tough on migration cetera. So then John Roberts says we don't have. And he's the chief Justice was Republican was appointed by Republican. And he basically said, hey, we have Clinton charges. We don't have Bush judges. We don't have Obama judges. And we don't have Trump judges. We have just judges. And then President Trump tweeted out again. Yes, we do have judges that are one of those four. And I mean, this is just a war. You do not make war with the chief Justice seem state. Yeah. That was really surprising. I think we've seen the last of that. I mean, even you know Chuck Grassley tried to defend the president's saying, you know, why did Roberts rebuke Obama's remark. Why didn't he do that? He was trying to say he didn't do that before with Obama, and he made a comment, but I think that's much different. It is much different. And it's going to. I mean, this is to go down in the history books. Thanksgiving. But because nobody can believe that Roberts issued that statement. I mean, it was just unbelievable. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I agree. And then how about this story? Then this other story that's getting a lot of attention is the president praising the Saudis for the low world oil prices. Oh my gosh. So as you know, he has just let the Saudis off the hook in terms thicker, show key Kelly. And. Basically, he said, listen, if we don't sell the Saudis things they're going to buy it from Russia and China that might be true. But as you remember, we have had former presidents like Carter who actually put human rights. I was roundly criticized for that. But President Trump is being criticized for not putting human rights at all in context. Yeah. Wow. I don't think we've heard the last of this whole Saudi thing either. This is just kind of a tipping point. There may be much more. That happens down the line only that and I'll tell you I was against of the Saudi Arabian government after nine eleven along with them up a talk show host, and they took us to a party on the Red Sea. I've never seen so much alcohol in my entire life. Drink it. Yeah. I've heard similar things. So that's not shocking to me. Let's put it that way. In the meantime, here's the big thing. Because there you are in in. New York City and so much conversation about the weather. What is the temperature like in the east coast is like what one degrading very very cold, very cold. Yeah. Not a great for parades. A not a and it's supposed to be very windy or the Macy's day parade. Very windy, and you know, we have seen balloons get blown about. But the wind is supposed to be staggering which would be just in a few hours. Wow. Crazy, and you and I talked about Nancy Pelosi. And now there's the story that Marcia fudge is not running to oppose Pelosi because that was. Title, Marcia fudge is a congresswoman from the great state of Ohio, which is where I'm from. And basically she met with Nancy Pelosi. She was going to run against her and then Pelosi has revived a committee on voting and she's putting Marcia fudge in charge. And Marcia fudge, Dan is not going to run against Nancy Pelosi. Now, Nancy Pelosi needs to hundred eighteen votes to be the speaker. She would just make it may be.
