"Tournament match up. So it's you know you need to know the variance of each need to tell the odds of making the cut all those things but in terms of the simulator data golf on the website data gov actually already has a great simulator product. But i think the issue is the fact that most people like there. There isn't the same availability of gulf power ratings out there you know. Most people don't have ratings For one hundred and six golfers for a tournament and if they do they probably already simulating it themselves. so i just. I just think there really isn't much demand. there's not a lot of buying points in gulf matchup betting there are places that offer you know minus a half a strobe for round bats minus one and a half stroke for tournament debt. So that's something i could add. But but in general that's fairly simple and easy to price so so right now. You have football basketball baseball hockey or no hockey. We have hockey. We also have college football and we'll be adding college basketball by the time that season starts and we've we've a lot of people ask for soccer. So maybe that's gonna be next. We'll see so all so This seems like more than a full-time job and being a professional better is also a fulltime job. So how are you managing. That are you still. Are you still out there betting now the answer. Same answer yeah. This has been not a great year for me. Professionally betting Because i put so much. Work into unabated It's taken up more time than than the betting ever will and So yeah this has been combined with twenty twenty with the pandemic affecting my betting It's been too disappointing years personally for me But hopefully this you know we can find balanced going forward. And i can get back. I know rufus. His solution was to employees. Right rufus i did i did. I have my brothers trading for me in nanjing accounts in all sorts of things but for me. I've narrowed my focus a lot so i quit that in baseball i decided not to do it because the pandemic last year and i realized i didn't miss it at all baseball such a mental grind for me. The did you have pets every single day. You can't escape it. And somehow i i let baseball Downs get to me more than any other sport. So i did that at this year. Either and i've basically narrowed my focus to golf in august instead on getting more Accounts more places to bed. Scaling that in. It's been actually a really good year financial financially for me Just because i've been able like i've been able to bet bigger on my best sport so that that's kind of been my rich. I need some work on sort of work life balance as well as the work other work balance. So captain jack.

"Welcome to gambling with an edge. Thank you about pleasure to be here again with you likewise even though unfortunately this time not there in person but maybe soon maybe soon so to start off. Ellis about unabated. So unabated is a site that rufus and i have created with two other founding partners and the reason we wanted to create this site is there's a bit of a dearth of sports betting educational content out there There's plenty of things if you were to search for sports betting information you find a lot of stuff but not all of it is credible not all of it is even truthful And most of it is meant to either funnel you to somebody who selling you picks or funnel you to a sportsbook who is basically paying for that content to be created through affiliate marketing and other things and we felt there wasn't a an all authentic voice in the industry in the community for sports bettors to basically take their game to the next level so in other words. Everyone's very much interested in sports betting right now. It's the hot thing to do. I'm sure a lot of your audience is saying. Oh well maybe. I should put into sports betting since all of these new sports books have opened up in my state We're now legal in twenty six out of the fifty states now so we pass the tipping point and so we created the site in hopes that Maybe not to help people win. you know. there's there's nothing i can do. That will help you just win. We can help you lose less. You can trim the house edge so you become a more sustainable sports better in your process in your journey to becoming a winning sports better so our site basically has three major tenants and that is We have education and in that education. We have articles and videos much. Like i've created on youtube in the past but with with a stronger platform beneath it so that i can do more things beyond what you to allow me to do And then we have trading tools which are largely tools. You can use to answer questions you might have about sports betting market.

Thank you so much for having me uncertain excited to be here michael so before we get into the ins and outs of influence or programs. Why don't we set the stage a bit by talking about your recent experience with the biden campaign and his inauguration. What were your roles there. And how did influencers come into the mix. Yeah chris so on the biden campaign. my title is the community content director so effectively. I was tasked with you know engaging various communities online kind of exactly what it says I was a part of the digital partnerships team which was kind of like the innovation hub of the digital team on the campaign so we were tasked with seating content about joe biden on the internet anywhere. That wasn't through our own channels so whether that was the publishers are different platforms different partnerships. Anything that wasn't like our social media or our email or our advertising so influencers played a big role in that i also headed up the digital partnerships team during the inauguration which i might refer to as pick that presidential inaugural committee There we also utilized influencers in both cases. We really utilize them. It's kind of an external messenger or external channel for our broader goals. And is this something this focus on influence. There is something that really came about this election cycle or really became more sort of professional this election cycle or have you also seen it in the prior work on campaigns. You've done yeah.

A seat at the table for workers
"Are going to begin with trade. And we're going to do that because it's been awhile since the policy parts of what we buy from and sell to other countries has been the story in trade as opposed to the tariff parts of that part of our economy that dominated the past couple of years and our way in is a three hundred and eight page document out from the white house. This week called fittingly enough. The twenty twenty one trade policy agenda of the united states. It is as i said three hundred pages long. So the t. l. The are here is the biden administration intends to us trade policy to advance racial equity to fight climate change and to take on what it calls. China's coercive and unfair economic trade practices the core theme of the thing though is a worker centric approach to trade workers. The white house says are going to have see table. Marketplace's refinish your is on the trade desk today in a nutshell biden's new priorities mean free. Trade for free trade sake is out the window. It is a big contrast the elite and this president of the economic policy institute pre trump both democrats and republicans for a couple of decades when place trade policies. That were definitely not worker. Centric i would say more corporate centric. She says former. President trump was able to harness latent resentment around jobs industries that were lost over the years. And that's clearly something. The biden administration has tuned in on how that translates into policy over the next four years. Rufus york says president of the national foreign trade council in practice it plays out in enforceable rules on forced labour clear protection of the right to organize and bargain collectively that those need to be elements serve of trade agreements but the biden administration won't be in any rush to enter any new trade agreements according to sharyn o'halloran professor of political economy at columbia university. She says biden will try to shore up us. Competitiveness i as a way to protect workers. They're focusing on by american and precising use of american products and procurements developing infrastructure and so forth but being worker. Centric does not mean being protectionist. Halloran says the use of tariffs is likely to be much more surgical and you can expect a lot of talk of working with allies trade issues. A very clear break with the recent past in new york. I'm revenge sure for

"Also find more information about me at howard. University's webpage For faculty profile. Great green and. I'm just appreciative. That you have such clear audio because a lot of times. I don't know why academic a call him with some crazy jenky audio very very happy. Sound crystal clear awesome Yeah and you're. I discovered you from paper that you wrote that. I thought was great. I read it years ago The sexual abuse of black men under american slavery and that was a topic. That doesn't get discussed a lot. And you expanded that into a whole book are rethinking rufus and i kind of wanted you to talk about both. What brought you to the paper and What the differences between the if any between the paper and the book and actually what. Your specialty is outside of this. Because i know you have a broader specialty outside of this but you know how you brought us. Specialty brought you to this specific topic. So background in training is in gender and sexuality in early america primarily colonial america. But it's a moved into the nineteenth century now so my previous work is largely focused on gender especially men in manhood masculinity and Often sort of sexual components sex's part of Masculinity some Certainly the for my first book the earliest work on masculinity in colonial america focused on Career or calling and then the political arenas and if it was domestic it was much. More about being a patriarch and head of household And the work on women had already talked about sex and sexuality as a component of femininity and of gender for women so the contribution that i was trying to make there was to talk about how sex and sexuality mattered for men even going back to colonial days and there was all kinds of different ways in which that was spelled out in that book. the article that you mentioned You're right that came first So it's sort of the core for the book. I didn't know there was going to be a book when i wrote that article..
Turning Your Passion Into Sustainable Work with Zachariah Moreno
"Hello welcome to go bam good morning. We're actually doing this during coffee. Time my favorite time of day. Thank you for having me. Thank you for coming on so zach. Tell us who you are. What's your heritage where you come from. I'm a mexican. American here in california oakland more specifically from the central valley of california grew up can actually west sacramento. You know went to school. They're pretty normal. Giant mexican family in california and Always had a love for creativity and art and different forms of expressing the that creativity so throughout my journey. That has come to life in a couple of different. Mediums started in kind of ink on paper transition to acrylic on canvas. art shows. Some awards wanted to do that professionally struggled to find a way to actually passion into sustainable work. Glad i saw that problem as early as i did. But then you know it always had an affinity for technology because of my my father's background been privileged to To be exposed to some technology pretty pretty early on and then i realized i could combine those two things together and make artwork and creativity with technology with squad. Cast is kind of the most recent body of that and that's actually another level of helping others be creative and connect and be creative with each other with their guests to record podcast interviews. That sound awesome from anywhere in the world. They do okay. So we're gonna pack all that story because this is what we do. So you're mexican american. Are you first generation. Second third generation. Right hey do how is that. I'm i yeah. I've actually thought about you know. My grandparents were barely born in the united states. A believe their family crossed the border into texas when they were like. I think my grandpa was actually. My grandmother was actually pregnant with him. when she came to america and i believe my grandma was a little girl when they crossed over into texas so work their way over to california and my grandpa was very fortunate to have an uncle who owned some farmland essentially in in the central valley here in in yolo county. They were farmworkers. The added bonus that he had is that his uncle rufus. I've never really gotten this full story. But he was able to own his own farm so he of course worked with farmworkers. They were out there in the field with them every day. My grandma grandpa learned to drive was he was super young was driving people back and forth from the fields and he's got gnarly scars all over his legs from like being out in in the different agricultural environments and walking around out there all day you know really exposed to that lifestyle and then became a sheriff's officer and later most of his career. He was a one of the best saw filers on the west coast. That's not a job really anymore. What is it at the time. These giant lumber companies would need these giant saw blades to take the raw number that they would bring in kind of millet down into usable lumber. So my grandpa started out in the yard stacking green lumber which is full of water. So it's incredibly woods heavy anyway but when it's fresh like that it's incredibly heavy so i'm sure he was pretty ripped back then he still is. He's in his nineties now. He's my favorite person and worked his way up to I guess it's kind of an apprentice situation where studied under somebody. He can take a piece of metal and make a giant saab laid out of it and Make that saw blade last for a very long time. And i guess there's very few people who can do that. He was very skilled skilled craftsman still to this day. Does a lot of woodworking and he's ninety nine only has he taught you how to make a late. He's taught me like on paper and shown me. He has a workshop that i helped build and we built in his backyard woodworking shop. And so does my dad. So this is what i mean about like creativity and craftsmanship. I think it goes very deep like my grandpa's. He's not a like a graphic artist. He's a very skilled technical drawing kind of pre autocad so he was What i would say is the first generation and my grandma you know to. That's how they match. She was one of the farm workers on his uncle's farm.
'Bill & Ted Face the Music' isn't excellent, but it's still kind of fun
"Ted faced the music. It's not significant nor extremely funny, but it's certainly fun. And it's so amiable that I'd be kind of a meanie to say anything too critical of it. In case you're thoroughly pop culture challenged. This is the third movie and a trilogy of Dumb Guy, Buddy Cos. That began 30 Count them 30 years ago with the time traveling Stoner Movie Bill and Ted's excellent adventure that was 1989. There was a sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey and 91. These guys are best friends, suburban goofballs in one of the rock star's billing tender in high school in the original film, they're gonna fail history. Oh, and by the way, they're played by then and played by now. Alex Winter and the Evergreen Piano. Reeves. I mean piano Reeves. His career is Blowing back up. There's a big resurgence with John Wick films and The Matrix franchise is continuing, but he loves this character, and he's got a great relationship and report with Alice Winter. Eso. They've come back for this third film and You know. Initially they're visited by this hipster from the future named Rufus, who shows up in some kind of phone booth that can traverse time in space. Like like doctor who's police box, and by the way, Rufus was played by the late great comedian George Carlin, and he takes them on a trip through time to help them pass his history tests and tells them that they are going to write and record a song that will bring the world together in peace and harmony. Will, apparently by this third film. Three decades later, they still haven't written a song to sign the song. I've always felt that the world is just one song away from peace and harmony to to bad. Hey, Michael, do you exactly that I have to want hilarious.
Bill & Ted Face the Music Review
"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right. The ticker about to hear from me Linda Holmes is going to be a subjective it's rigorous. It's clear eyed it is on demand by the gauzy scream nostalgia because unlike all y'all I never saw these movies until this week just to prepare for the show and I didn't see him for very simple reason I didn't have to I. Mean I was a junior in college nineteen, eighty, nine I was studying marine biology. I was dating a string of profoundly unfulfilled women and. Being. On a college campus and eighty nine and not here boobs heinous strange things are afoot at the circle k just over and over and over. So I felt like I got it. And think about the time late eighties early nineties mainstream. American. Comedy was kind of stuck in this catchphrase based mode and I was like, okay. I don't need to see this while I've seen them all now and I'm here to tell you. Sure I guess that's your thing. I like the Guy Listeners of the leads I. think that's the appeal here but left only once an excellent adventure. It's a visual gag that gets tossed off. It's a Freud at a mall holding a corn dog and it's like, okay, fine. You got me I mean it's low hanging fruit, but you got. And in face the music this new film shore on Paper Samara, Weaving Kristen Schaal Holland freaking Taylor they are gunning for me they are coming. But ultimately didn't stick. It's not supposed to. That's not what it's for. It just evaporates on contact with the eyeballs and maybe that's exactly what the world needs. Right now is dumb sweep dumb but I

"Be out in the world. They're not prepared. They don't know you're gonna be clueless. And i'm supposed to be the greatest teacher and here it is. I've done not to nope. That's exactly it teaching. Pay all right. So man i gotta tell you so. Let me let me walk through top three lessons here and and this has been so good good. This is good. We have have you here more often. Who is you for. No reason no reason. Yes absolutely so number. One lesson take notes from cardi b. period. There's one person that. I respect in the last couple of years as a woman artist was come up. It's cardi b.

I'm like wait a second because you know a lot of people wanna hate on cardi b. but i respect her as a woman because she was actually i remember correctly she was actually working like a deli or something. That guy says to her. Hey you're pretty and he tells her to strip. She's in an abusive relationship and realizes that she needs to make money to get out and so across the street literally the strip club. She goes she strips and she makes more money now. She doesn't tell anybody that she used. From what i understand. She doesn't tell anybody that she's stripping. Everyone thinks she's a babysitter that fast forward though you know the greatest part for me at this whole thing was a her focus and clarity on that money would give her more options and without the money she was trapped right and as much as people wanna hate on. Oshii was a stripper. It's like sometimes we find ourselves in certain places. Like i know from my own experience that there's not one hundred doors open and you it just doesn't exist whether you're still black in america or you're like me you're a woman or you find yourself in a situation where you're being abused. I was there or if it's not that maybe you got kids or you had an accident. You got diagnosed with something some times life hands us life cars endorser just not open so you have to walk through the doors that are open you. She walks through the door. She makes her money.

"Or listen to this or listen to the song with access. Now, I mean, has asked US typing in to the computer or their phone or their phone or I had off whatever. So how do you best fight that right or how do you? Artists are GONNA put out this music. They always put out this music. They've been putting out this music forever, and that's my whole point in that. That's what I'm like. This is nothing new will what why are you so shocked? You know for me I'm like I think the bigger question is, are you the most impactful person in your kid? That's exactly it. Right? That is exactly like if my if my daughter's trying to debate, you know trying to figure things like if she listens to that and I'm not as powerful or as impactful forefront of her life, and there's a whole bigger issue at hand xactly whether or not. She hears this song as irrelevant should unheard the rest of the other songs break period because she's a kid that. That has access to everything everything. And I think the notion of like let's put up all these wall. So you can't hear I just that's stupid because that just makes them want to hear it makes wants to here. And then more importantly, I don't want to say they're uninformed but it's like I have the responsibility to the navigate the truth to that. Because if I, if I here's the other part of that, it's like if you don't want to see if you don't let them listen to it. But if I try to put up the walls and I don't have the opportunity to some point, they're going to be eighteen going to be out in the world they're not prepared. They don't know they're gonNA be clueless, and I'm supposed to be the greatest teacher and here it is. I've done not no. That's exactly it. No teaching. Pay. All right so Man I gotTA. Tell you.

I stumbled into a lesson I'm like wait a second because you know a lot of people WANNA hate on Cardi B. But I, respect her as a woman because she was actually I remember correctly she was actually working like a deli or something that guy says to her hey, you're pretty and he tells her to go and strip. She's in an abusive relationship and realizes that she needs to make money to get out. And so across the street literally a Strip club, she goes she strips and she makes more money. Now she doesn't tell anybody that she used from what I understand. She doesn't tell anybody that she's stripping everyone thinks she's a babysitter. That fast forward though you know. The. Greatest Part for me at this whole thing was a her focus and clarity on that money would give her more options. And without the money she was trapped right and as much as people WANNA hate on Oshii was a stripper. It's like sometimes we find ourselves in certain places like I know from my own experience that there's not one hundred doors open..

So you know lesson number one I'm GONNA break this down into lessons because I think it's so it's so important that I make it clear that I'm here four WOP W AP however, it's it's called why because I respect the hustle and I learned something I was Reminded of something really important. What's the money is always in the details it is like she didn't like we're here we are in the middle of quarantine and where most are I would say the average person's like you know what? Let me just ride this out I'm GONNA I'M GONNA I'M GONNA hang out I'm GonNa, do a bunch of nothing saying I'm GonNa wait for quarantine to be over the last couple of months this woman has been doing this.

Hot Video Yeah I mean just by like what just happened so it was like visual ice cream it was but you know what? I'm going to have to second that on and I you know obviously I'm a woman and whether or not we know of Damian is saying that because of the fact that he's a man I don't think.

And then, and then when Kylie makes debut, I was like come through Kylie Jenner and they match it up to the. Jaguars. Leopard print thing Matt I mean. Was Great.

Bringing Kylie in exposure, not only to a whole new market but you know how far Kylie Jenner's reach is huge like arenas around the glow. I.

Difference between Direct and Indirect Taxes
"Okay so we've been hearing a lot about wealth tax and I don't even think most people even know what a wealth tax is and they stop listening because it's only going to affect they say only gonna affect those people making it or have a billion dollars or more but it's going to be a tax on everything they own so there are the the money they gave to their kids you know all of it all of it and so it doesn't seem to be constitutional at all but everybody is loving it because it doesn't affect them and it's gonna raise all this money but it's unconstitutional Kyle salmon is a senior contributor for the federalist he has podcast is co host of conservative minds welcome to the program Kyle how are you good thing for a mail client you bet so you wrote a very good article in the federalist about why Elizabeth Warren's well taxes completely unconstitutional but can you can you can you explain it in simple layman's terms WHYY and what a direct tax is you know just kind of break this down for us sure when the distinction I mean between DirectX an indirect tax is one that doesn't come up very much but it was something discussed at the constitutional convention because the founding fathers the the government they were living under the articles of confederation did not have the power to tax the other just ask the states for money and hope I got it so a lot of times you can get it because the states didn't want to pay it so when they wrote the constitution they thought well okay we need to be able to tax directly so Congress to levy a tax and we can pay for the army and the navy and everything else we need to pay for but they want to give in to much power to tax didn't want them to overwhelm the states and take away all of the people's money and and and put himself in a worse situation so they they split the difference and said that Congress could tax but they couldn't do any direct tax and less it would be apportioned by population so what does that mean at the constitutional convention Rufus king of Massachusetts asked what is the precise meaning of DirectX and according to Madison's notes nobody answered and they moved on okay good so even in the beginning it was sort of a compromise language but as a then we moved on it kind of took on the idea that a tax on people or property is a direct tax a tax on sales or imports is an indirect tax so Congress always is taxed imports or had the heavy buildings action ports of them and that's that's terrible and we've had that since the beginning the you know Alexander Hamilton came up with the whiskey tax which caused a little star in the west but it was definitely constitutional because it was a tax on on the sales of whiskey thanks but they could not taxed property directly was the idea unless they a portion that tax among the states so that each state paid its share according to population according to property affected was made property taxes impossible because it would make any sense why why if you had to state that the same population so but one of them was Rachel one of them was poor they both have to sit pay the same amount of property tax to the government among actively mean is that each poor person and the poor state had to pay the same amount as the rich people in the rich state okay sort of the opposite about taxes even in those days were meant to go so it had to be apportioned by the state meaning California and South Dakota would pay the exact same rate and as a state yes but it but if if one was California that had all the rich people there and south go head now the rich people they're they're screwed yeah that's why Congress never really impose a tax like that because it would have made no sense in the room with an angry so weak that work for about a hundred years now we get down to the first permanent income tax getting imposed in the eighteen nineties and people said Hey isn't this the same thing you know you're taxing income that's a direct tax and the Supreme Court agreed and they say you have to apportion this which basically meant they're gonna repeal it because the same problems then we passed the the sixteenth amendment few decades later the says you can do direct taxes on income but all the other direct taxes are still not permitted unless their portion what is the difference between my income and my stuff well that that's what the court said in in in politics that struck down the the on apportioned income tax in the eighteen nineties because they said look if you have property and we can't eccentric like they get income from the property and we can doesn't make sense it's the same thing right right we can't tax a person directly beacon taxes income that doesn't make sense so that's what that was struck down it's only legal now because of the sixteenth amendment which carved out this one part of direct taxation and left everything else close so it's only about income tax they had to change the constitution to make it that direct tax could only be income right and it's it's pretty broad I think come on you know any kind of income you get they can tax and they do but it's got to be incoming can't be just property

The subsidies have wrought there is as we should say a mirror image case being brought by the e U against the United States over Boeing that one's not resolved yet but the point is that this Brouhaha over airplanes plains which took a fifteen years count him fifth team years to get resolved is how trade disputes are supposed to work marketplace's Sabrina Short. It's going going to the WTO is like going to court. It is a legal proceeding getting information together compiling your arguments making can the arguments before the different panels.

That's what happened today between the US lessen the U. But the trump administration for the most part has not been settling trade disputes this way for example with China China.

By blacklisting Huawei, the US could be shooting itself in the foot
"There's an interesting observation to be made here about the global economy, things that usually happened really, really slowly. Until they happen. Really, really fast. Oh, explain from American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles. I'm KAI Ryssdal. It is Thursday. Today, the sixteenth of mega is always to have you along, everybody. We begin today with this ten days ago, Amir week and a half. Every indication was that the trade mad disagreements between the United States and China were all but solved couple more meetings, a quick Trump's, she phone call done and done. Now. It's tariffs as far as the I can see. And as of yesterday quite possibly a breakdown in the heavily, integrated and extremely globalized technology supply chain, we refer here, of course, to the Trump administration, effectively blacklisting, the Chinese technology, giant hallway, which will cut that company off from its American suppliers, chips, from Qualcomm and phone software from Google to name. Just a couple. You're all that in with bands on while way in other countries. And as marketplace's Scott Tong reports now from Washington, there does seem to be something of a digital iron curtain descending if the US shoe. Hallway, it also hits its own foot inside while we gadgets are innards from firms, like Intel, oracle and Western Digital but tech firms sensing the crossfire are trying to get out of the way and avoid partnering with companies subject to bands in retaliation says Linley Gwen app of the Linley group. I think that companies are trying to reduce their exposure to the band, and by fewer components from countries that could be affected the word decoupling is being whispered in the US and China that is each country may develop its own separate supply, chain, while we has long been on Washington's hitlist and is trying to make parts semiconductors in house. Business professor at ten Wong judge young university has a new book on wall way. He says the company can be self sufficient that can make it south. Maybe he's not as good as the US components, but it's not much worse. They still can't sell products so that prepare for these more than ten years, while ways, DIY project. Could accelerate Chinese innovation? And in areas like wireless, five G many see hallway as already ahead. So the US might not want to cut itself off says, political scientists Abraham Newman at Georgetown, France in the nineteen eighties tried to develop its own internet, and it was kind of ridiculous, and the risk is that we end up with a new version of that a lesser. They un-filed g network. He says the US is weaponising interdependence and could unravel a global tech supply chain that took a generation to come together. I'm Scott Tong for marketplace. You can argue till the cows come home about tariffs who wins who loses who pays wait. No, you can't consumers pay and nobody wins. But there is at least one agreed upon reality. When it comes to what tariffs due to an economy, the way things normally work don't work anymore. Marketplace's refinish your explains that one I don't know if you've ever grown plants in a terrarium they love it in there because they're protect. But when you take them, out and expose them to the outside world, they don't always do out there, not strong. It breeds a kind of laziness here Simon Lester is with the Cato Institute and he's not talking about terrariums. He's talking about tariffs tariffs that protect some US businesses from foreign competition. You don't have to compete with the best in the world, just sort of relax. You don't have to work that hard, you're not gonna face any competition. US steel companies, for example, don't face as much pressure to upgrade plants now they can in our raising prices without competition from foreign steel producers. Ultimately, I think if you want to sessile businesses, you want them competing in order to, you know me as a fishing has possible Chinese goods. Don't usually compete with US goods head on. We don't make a lot of the same stuff, but many goods that are made in America are made with Chinese parts tariffs. Make those parts more expensive Tim Keough teaches economics at the university of Minnesota gonna make things to the US shell the rest of the world. Be more expensive than we're gonna lose market share because of that. But the. Disadvantages go beyond that, take the tariffs on steel aluminum. The metal that would be going into the US now goes to global markets increasing supply and depressing prices outside the US Rufus York's is president of the national Foreign Trade Council. Many of my manufacturers say that this has a direct impact on their competitiveness. Not only because their costs go up, but actually their foreign competitors costs. Go down your says the morn industries protected the less productive, it's likely to become in New York. I'm Sabrina sure for marketplace. In higher education news on this Thursday, three much reviled letters. S A N, t the college board purveyor of the aforementioned exam is adding a new score to it math, reading, and writing the optional essay and now adversity as in the hurdles like neighborhood crime, and poverty, that students might have dealt with getting into college. It's yet another attempt by the college board to keep its core product, the SAT, relevant as the idea. Of who gets in wear gets more attention. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more on that when Scott vers, I'll was weighing student applications. This college admission season he had another tool to consider. He's dean of undergraduate admissions at the university of South Carolina, along with grades and essays and test scores and environmental context. Dashboard. Offer details like family and housing stability access to AP classes and neighborhood poverty, and crime. And that did help us find some students that we would probably would otherwise not considered the university was one of fifty testing out the dashboard. This year, the college board will roll it out to all schools next year, and it'll be free, but SAT critic Robert Shafer with fair test says it's a business move with selective colleges under pressure to admit more students of color and low income students. More of them are making standardized tests. Optional people have long known that head scores were a excellent. Mega of accumulated advantage. And now, the college board is going to admit it by thing. You can't use raw scores. You have to examine them in context. The college board has tried something like this, in the past in the late nineteen nineties, it's so-called strivers program aimed to take socioeconomic factors including race into account. But Shaffer says critics accused the college board of back door affirmative action, and the program was dropped Tiffany Jones directs higher, Ed policy at the education trust advocacy group. She says the dashboard doesn't include race without looking at race explicitly. It's very difficult to try to account for racial inequality. Students also won't know their scores adding another layer of mystery to the college admissions process. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.
