"Hey Melissa, that's right. Let's take a look at shares of silver gay, which are moving lower here. After the company has delayed the filing of its ten K, you're seeing the stock is down about 20 3% in a statement, the bank says it requires additional time to perform analysis, record journal entries related to subsequent events related and to complete management's evaluation of internal controls over financial reporting. This is of course one of the top banks in the cryptocurrency space. You can see shares down 22% here over time. Melissa? Wow. Seema, thank you. Seema Modi, that's probably just about the worst headline you could possibly get from a company that they're going to delay their ten Q if you're a bank. Right. I mean, if you're if you're a man, if you're Chegg, that might, but not bad not to make asparagine remark disparaging works against check. I totally made that up. But yes, if you're a bank, this is disconcerting. What happened here? Between the time that they announced their earnings and the filing of the ten K yeah, that's be concerned. Because that wasn't that long ago. No, it wasn't that long ago. And so there had been stories about this investigation into, you know, FTX is relationship with silvergate and was that I don't even know exactly what they have investigation was about. Maybe that's part of this delay filing. Banks delaying a filing like this is really not a good thing. Yeah, and they recently got huge investments from yes, right? Well, just share just share a purchase. They didn't get any they also go interestingly and surprisingly to me they did not pay their preferred dividend. Which it was only $2 million was surprising to me why they wouldn't do that. They didn't have to pay it. They don't have to, but just sort of sends a message, I guess they sent a secret message. Well, now the message last year. Shares are down 22% right now. For more on where the markets go from here, let's bring in the chart master Carter

"From Bloomberg world headquarters, I'm Charlie pallett stocks are higher on a busy week for central banks, Wall Street is looking ahead to Wednesday's fed decision and the news conference with fed chair Jay Powell. Seema Shaw is chief strategist at principal global investors. I don't expect Powell to do too much, you know, we know that he's going to repeat the message about having to we made great progress, but there's a little bit for further to go. So I think what we're hearing now is at least my market perspective and where the difference in expectations where the market can go is really about what happens at the back end of 2023. So I think that's what I'm going to be looking at for.

Well, you remember remember just a couple of weeks ago, we shared the heartbreaking and tragic story of how TikTok's viral challenges are luring young users to their deaths. That piece was by Olivia carville. She's back with us this afternoon. And she's back on the TikTok beat. This time it's about young creators who are posting suggestively sexual content, sometimes with actual parental approval, and how that's leaving moderators and executives unsure about what to do. Joining us now is Olivia carville. She joins us from New Zealand. We're also joined by the editor of business week, Joel Weber. He's a bit closer to home with us right here in the Bloomberg interactive broker studio. Joel the stories, centers around a creator who goes by the name Jenny Poe patch. Who is she? In real life, rosalie erato and what Olivia has done here in her second installment on TikTok, the previous one was a cover story in the magazine. Is really root us in a uniquely American story, I think. Obviously, TikTok has now grown into the world's most popular app more than 1 billion people using this. And it's been really profound in sort of the younger generations, right? And we are seeing influencers go and part of what has made it so alluring is that people can go from no following to massive following very quickly, that app and its algorithm really prior to prioritizes discovery. And that's allowed a whole new generation of influencers to come up. And Jenny poop it is one example of that. It also shows that there's some real controversial ideas and sort of a darker side of TikTok that Olivia's story goes into. So Olivia, how did you discover Jenny and the controversy that surrounding her? Thanks, Joe. Yeah, I really wanted to get a seat. So what happened when teenage creators on TikTok doing sexually seduced or an appropriate thing? And I had been using TikTok for a while looking at a number of accounts. And I keep saying a lot of creators criticizing this one particular young teenage creator, Jimmy Pope. And I would say a lot of people highlighting her account and raising it as an issue of child exploitation, saying they thought that she was in danger that she was being forced to perform, but maybe people needed to even call child protection services. So as I was on TikTok and I was watching all of these videos highlighting or raising awareness of this one, what they viewed was a problematic account, I decided I wanted to try and find the teenager behind that account. I wanted to know who Jimmy Pope was. Was she really in danger? Was this all just a big conspiracy theory? What was going on with her account and why was it so controversial? And that led me down to Orlando, Florida, where I got to spin the chance of a week was rosalie, the young creator behind the account to hear her side of the story. Well, I mean, I was so fascinated to read this story. I was saying just before this segment started, I got served one of her videos on my for you page yesterday, and I don't dance. I don't know why this was given to me, but when you actually sat down for you pages, though, for people who don't necessarily. You open your TikTok app and you land on a video and then you continue to scroll down and it's just an endless scroll of videos. And it's really powerful because it gets in front of a lot of eyeballs. Exactly, exactly. I mean, most of the videos on for you pager there because they've somehow already garnered a lot of views, but tell us a little bit more about Jenny and whether actually she does feel unsafe or whether this is of her own volition. Yeah, well, so Jeannie is she just recently turned 16 and she has been performing on TikTok in its previous musically from the age of ten. She would do belly dancing videos as a ten year old girl and head about 500,000 followers back then. And as she moved as musically merged into TikTok and TikTok grow more and more powerful, you know, today it's almost the world's

Do you think it's because she's been allowed to sit at the table? You know, the brunch table or the bar table are. Maybe. We eat the food with them. Yeah. There's that fourth chair they keep auditioning. It's like Seema we'll get a scene than Antony will get seen. They'll let somebody sometimes no one's in that chair. It's just the ghost of Samantha. And they don't know what to do with that fourth chair. And I think they should have just committed to sema, I absolutely buy that kind of real. Again, same situation, single, that would be carries the U.S. friend. She doesn't have to be like Samantha. I think they should have just committed to that and let's see my headlines. That doesn't mean we can't see a Charlotte working with somebody at school. Or more of shady as his life or whatever, but it's too many. It's too many people just too many people. They don't all have to have a shadow of color. So that, you know, as you say, they get a tiny pop, but nothing more. It's not fair. And as you say, it opens them up to accusations of tokenism, all rightly. Can I ask you about the tampon question? How did you feel about this tampon storyline? Yeah, I think it's funny because a lot last year in the last two years there's been a lot of non fiction written about periods and menopause and that I think was because it basically hadn't been talked about for 2020 years, although we know Carrie Carrie and her friends referred to their periods usually around pregnancy, so in that very typical sitcom way the way you know you're pregnant in a sitcom is because your period hasn't arrived. And so notably Carrie got her period once in a children's play area. If we remember way back in series one, she thinks she's pregnant with big later on a couple of times Samantha fends off the menopause once when she fucks her horrible neighbor with the gray ponytail and gets her period all over his sheets and then she is more stringently fighting off menopause..

"Regionally people have different ways to look at things into revaluate things even if it was the same product and the same problem that we were trying to address for the client but the baby had to do it was completely different and remember we work very closely with this particular client or in a multiple months very close to aligning with their senior leadership right up to the global ceo and they had a couple of new stakeholders who came on the project and they looked at a few things and they actually said that they wanted to a few dimensions and that quickly two of the entire evaluation so far so actually i remember going to meeting billing the customer that hey luke if if you think that you really need these three dimensions which are so different than what we've been talking about. I think we are not a good choice and should perhaps Unicol this loss and there was a deep silence in the room for about a couple of minutes. And i think that that actually that pause who like we would otherwise think about in life gave them opportunity to reassess and see what was important of course next morning we call from the leader saying. Hey we've real bit everything and billeting you know what we had identified. Initially is what we want to do. The reveal able to build on closed one much sooner than we had anticipated interesting stories. Where on one side teams looking really rosie. You know it didn't and on the other side where it looked like it could have gone off track. Staying on topic had Do the best thing for for the client and for at that time an interesting contrast and no wonder so it's become somewhat of a tag you does he knows and once succumbing to a question that you just mentioned you know. The life of a product manager is in the realm of choices and prioritization. What do you use when you have to make choices of meat. Choices right or wrong is a consequence of sound decision making. And what have you learned over the years in terms of what works. Why trying to prioritize a backlog or a list of requirements no secondly and. I think this is something. I have and i think i consider myself lucky chance to work with organizations in teams of different sizes and that had access to different investment dollars. And if there's one thing that's karma you know it doesn't matter if you're google or microsoft or a startup or you know a vc funded entity dill still be finite investment to them vision that you have that mission is always going to be much larger than your investment outlook. I think that that is. Perhaps you know something that goes without the the thing i found that really works is actually some of the basic things. Maybe we'll start with read. The trouble starts with right. And we've become a crop. Where did it so much. That's happening all the time and we have got us to react to different things and respond to ask that. Come from us and bureau any people in many dimensions and sometimes those rightful and sometimes they are not any goes back to what's urgent and important and being able to look at all of that now when you're when you're building a product which is a little bit of a product. Dna dna sometimes becomes important. Are doing the right thing for your customer is often the reason why hundred equipment winston get pushed now. These may be coming from saving sooner customers or unique customers. You may have standard Who may be coming from exacts or from folks who are on the field some of it may be coming purely from. What is your ambition on the new big thing that you want to build and really you know do that. Big leapfrog ahead of the competition and be just you know pure competitive things you want to because your competition is also competing with the same nigger on a daily basis. Now how do you really make sense in all of this. Why did his amount of activity. Which happens up. I think radicalization is based on when it stopped own so being able to really look at a what is reality and what does it get visas. Business really want to go create an impact for how does that translate into my product strategy and product vision. I think an important thing that i learned that accident in the up was you can't sell what you can you. Can you can sell so really. You know being able to look at your target market on where you really going to can create an impact right now and how are they going to consume it and then be seconds. You ride trauma how is going to discover explored by to a user being able to try install us retired the entire life cycle too. I think it really is. What is the linemate with our strategy. What's alignment with our buy. It is willing to really to procure this. What's the alignment mitch. The journey our user is going to have and in that journey. What problem are we really going to solve. I think being really close to an. I like to use a three p. type formula who is the persona. What's the problem and hope Visit n if you're getting good answer for this you know. This is a good candidate for you to consider in your backlog of hundred now there may be many that go through and i think the mini- that were true trying to find a mix of some of those that can really be delighted the bottle from the keno martyrs times. They look at things. As either those which create delight which translates into array definite will off but saving and interpreting value. Some may be business as usual. You need to do it and others are going to be dissatisfied as the light lack of which is actually going to come back and hurt your holiday hurting you at the menu. Then you break it in two buckets like that. It's much easier. Then you know that you use certainly don't want anything that is a big dissatisfied off you want to create some lighters and everything else is going to be in motion. You'll always be at all eighteen twenty and there will be some ketchup you or your competitors. Doing i think if you were able to do a good job at the to the rest of it will will tend to this good tip sima. I'm sure a lot of our listeners. Who are product. Managers intending to take product. Management is critical. You will be tuning in because these are you. Do not get from somebody who is Living this life out. Thank you for that. I'd like to attack iota. little bit. sima would building teams. You said you had a lot of experience building product teams. What is it in your expedients that has taught you about a building right teams to build great products and or What is it that brings people together because a lot of product management is about legacy talking to different stakeholders different stakeholders feed the problem differently. And you want so many hats in your career as a salesperson it was important for you to close the deal as somebody who is a product manager of the customer experience the value perception of it. Plus you know working with engineering teams to make sure that you conveyed that nitric by them and building the right product. How does all this play into building a great product team. It's actually alluded job and it's not easy to be honest because it amongst different dimensions and i'm going to perhaps in a look at this in two parts. Chitra run is just building product managers and team of product managers project teams are. I mean eventually much larger because you are working so closely. It is time cross functional job. Anything for product management as a rule itself is a little niche. It's not like a lot of the rules. It's it's a role that requires someone to have a lot of ownership without to your a of authority. That's the kind of roulette. It is often folks in product management. Or you know at least two good among of courteous stages individual contributors and sometimes they have very high impact roles but they may still be begin individual contributor but you were on a daily basis influencing a lot of people around you like you said right so i think from a competency perspective for an individual as well as for the team did a two aspects which are quite key and i like to think of it often in the lens of the iceberg model of competency. What is the top. Which is often your skills in compton dizzy gemini learnable. Now these things like the domain that you operate in technology stack that you use a region that you have your client base in different regulations that you have from which need to be adhered to and so on and so forth learnable stuff under second part israeli below the iceberg and the below the iceberg. It's really about a lot of values and try it and this is this. Is the pattern part now. When it comes to a product the decision making is in in a landscape which is very ambiguous. Because you're figuring out what to do. You're figuring out where you're going to go saturday Figuring out what your competition is going to look like an attempts to be data driven but often being cognizant of the fact that data will be insufficient and it may be inaccurate unique to make a lot of decisions. I think you really need a gut where you don't feel the discomfort operating in the world. It's ambiguous your winter. After a few things you need to make some decisions you will need to say yes. No when there is no clear proxy available and most people will be looking at you to be the one who is putting your proposal on the table all of this sensory which moves us to the second part of work. You can hardly really bill this week teams because you need to do this in saturate that you are building the confidence of your sales teams building the confidence off your engineering support teams and so on an executive of course. Now i think the big scale that comes in or kicks in here really is able to create partnerships of trust in collaboration. Are you really able to look at the same situation in such a way that they are able to internalize it in the lens that is apparent to them. That's a big job. I think where you need to be able to do this individually and honestly. I think there's a lot also over the last fifteen years now. I think there's a lot interest and conversation about product management with a chance for people to know what the role is and really see that something that you enjoy and if you do we should totally you know. Jump and take the tried. I think you will. You will enjoy n. excited this. Two teams are really. I mean you end. The building team of really strong individuals were able to look at this for their respective areas. That they are driving but at the same time also collaborate in such a way. That it's like you have to take the village with you and you're taking many religious with the big distillation while really building that team. You were trying to create a balanced strategy. Where you know that you know you really good where you're able to look at where we're going from here. I re executive at the pace at which wish to the cost at which we should and in the way that we should. I think all these aspects become extremely critical than when you grow and explored that that to your larger teams just beyond who product and beyond product. Thanks that was very very interesting. The one thing that you mentioned several times in the course of this conversation was the ability to stay in the problem space. How did you begin to get comfortable thing with the problem at exploring more versus typical engineering mindset as well enough can i jump in and propose the solution or human. Get the customer. Do look at what i have to say. Okay this is how we can fix it and so on and so how do you get comfortable with staying with the problem space. Yeah i know. It's a hard world i mean in for me. Sometimes you know especially early in my career. It was like a double-whammy on one side. You know stick engineering each where you want to jump to the solution because it really looks good to be the one who says hey look i have the answer on the second side you know. Spend some time in sales in you know it was like i exactly know what this customer ones right now. Which is now when i think it was. Certainly a symptom came up more often earlier in the career. But you know being able to navigate that and a couple of things which have really helped this. I'm a big proponent of looking at anything actually for that matter from from a journey perspective. I think it's very important to be able to step back. And really look at the entire landscape is a journey. You know back in. Let's take a look at hobart design organizations and how they operate you have departments dedicated for sales marketing on indie product support services and whatnot. And now everyone they're good. Intend to the best of their capacity and interest are doing the best job of every single day to make this happen. But we're all living in silos and we're all living and working off overview of how it needs to be and then were trying to build something for the market. It becomes even more tricky. Because you're trying to. It's like this in is equal to one in any sequel remaining when you're doing it for one estimate engineering services business. It's relatively easy because they really success is about creating the most daylight experience that you possibly can for what the customer has a need for and You go ahead and achieved back or in fact exceed that and that's like a fantastic job than now come to the product. Would you are intending to do the same thing for the market. And it's not about one customer reviews about many and then you have to find out. What kind are those which is really read. It goes back to what which dog market am. I trying to go after. I've seen venue change this conversation on. This is how customer is going to take. And this is how they're going to try and push his it and were on board and use it and what not and then slipped back and look at. How is it that we as a company operates. I've seen that. It really helps you. You'll see are we doing the right things. Of course not. you won't be always able to everything with to make the right. Choices are goes up in the menu extended to Reach other problems solving even if you go back to just a feature part of what they're doing it's really about. Who is my persona. What they're trying to do and how frequently they're trying to start talking the language of a journey. It just changes. The whole thing from this is possible. It's like almost getting into a solution. Centric way saying. I can use i to be able to predict the next meeting time. And maybe the meeting between chitra and zebra and then you know we take a step back. And say hey. Chitra has been hosting a lot more grass than she does it once every exit doel and she needs so much time looking at her calendar. Looks like this is the best time to do it now. We could have done the whole fancy eric doing and maybe that would be right. But maybe it's not a locking maximum value for chitra and women who cartlidge you know solution. I says how do we stay there. We've spoken enough. We've learned about life we've learned about what is day in the life day. Zero eight hundred three hundred and to the special events. And i think that gives you a good sense of moving from unknown known of what you're trying to solve nice. I think these are. This is something that i personally heard. Very few people talk about with great dignity of expedience and conflict. If you but. I think this is so important for people to be able to be comfortable by staying in the problem. Space to develop great product. You have mentioned that having a sports mindset is something that has helped you in your career and particularly in your own as a product manager. How has that. Cuppa boat on enlighten note. You know if someone were to ask me. Can you tell. Tell me one thing that you've done right. I think my answer would be sports. I think it is wanting that i have done right in license for having been a sportsperson. I think there are a lot of a lot of who i am and how i go about things. I do the march to my early days them. I played sports for my school and later for the state for good. Among of most of these days. I think as much as it was in the class i was also in the sports ground and multiple listens. I think that came from there. I think one kind of borrowing from that to a product manager product. Managers life right and i talk about my first service. I mean in a wonderful. It's a nine eighteen meters corp and the net is certain height. I wasn't last five. I started playing house. Really you know trail in tiny views to try to hit the service across the my service would barely go even to not even the six meter line for a few weeks and then it went to the six meter line and then it going to the nine meter lines still just the line. Then one day it hit the From below and finally after think three months or so it didn't on their site just feebly. And i think i was. I was full of joy. When i look back. I don't think any of that time. I was bogged down with the fact that hit the service has not gone through. I was getting wound up. I just did what was needed to be done on. That day was to give it my best shot and if it was improving and i think that's what we do with the product you take something you give it your best shot use yvette. It's landing and then you interactivity of continue to play for for a long time off that. And i got good with the game and then i was at a stage vide- soon within practice and coaching that. I could exactly hit the service that it needed to be. Not too far not too close not too fast or if it needed to be really fast i mean i could land. It waited needed to land. I think that's what it is in the product will to you. You have an ambition but at the same time you execute one shot at a time. I think when you do it like that it removes. A lot of panic moves a lot of risk in the process but it still keeps your reentering radio. Think your room to have the maximum. The i can definitely does that. Seem up having been a basketball player myself. Thank you so much for shedding that example. I think sports has always been a good example for a lot of things and for people to comprehend. Even if you're not a sports person you'll defend watch sports and more importantly would say dean sport absolutely and in fact if you just extended to that i think if they did at any one or two keating's well again there are so many i think that you build. You always has one unit. Doesn't matter what you individually are good at no. of course we. Each sportsperson has some skills which are better than some of the others but eventually on game dates about how visa team can bring the best of what we need and on the strategy. That is going to help us on bad day. You never did security isolation and you just do it. As one unit anything the building the camaraderie and actually playing and losing. What winning as a team. I think is a big big one. It's highly competitive than most things out there but get the tendency often lemon leaving aside site cases. It's really about fair place the nam so you really are really open to be out there. You're competing in the open the performances up for everyone to look at performance reviews newsroom. It's all out there and if even is okay with that and we learned and grew. Look at the next game together. I think big big part of how you operate differently that mindset absolutely. I hope we can talk about more. Sporting analogy perhaps in future podcasts. Who knows another folded. I'll look forward to something like that. I would like to go back to one western. it's been bringing my mind. I basically grew up in my career more on the engineering side or work. I learned a lot by working with some really great product packages. We've had a tough woman's by negotiating with product managers dumbs of which features can come when what is it that customer's looking all busy Some of the things that my interest would come back to me and says you know. The just doesn't get this because if we have to meet this one change or if pre have to build this new feature. Here's what it's going to cost us to build it and talk. How have you build bridges with integrating teams. What is it that you would like to share a thousand terms of your formulas for collaborating with engineering. Deeds steps a large place where we live our lives right and this comes up often in each time. Betas news trumpeting the new product new model anywhere local jubal any combination. But i think one thing. That's been a very key part of how i have operated and i've managed to you. Don't have the best. Collaboration going and this takes time sometimes medic to release cycles because in the fourth release cycle. When you're working with a new team you're just trying to learn how people operate and even in any engineering team or even product. The every product manager the style of booking similarly everyone. You may have some things that like more autonomy. Some more collaborations some like to be like. Hey let's just exactly how we're going to do this. I will do my due to your right. And there is no right and wrong right but i think really. When you're in a product managers had it's your ownership to find out what stood them at which the team democrats. How is it that they like to get onto problems and being able to work with them in other them. That makes sense now. That seems like too much. But it's actually not it's just about being a little more empathetic listening little more and kind of funeral getting onto the table in a way that the rest of the team is on the second thing that i've always done my teams and sometimes it comes to the form of habe have problems States in the form of something may have gone a little south than you would have liked it or Purely how do we make this thing. Work best together and a big piece in making this is the product manager is waiting certain hat and he brings a certain inside through the day bill. Similarly we have an architect engineer ran. Qa ended up and you person who have their perspective which most of us are not willing to buy different seat. And i the big we have been able to see. The breakthrough comes when you have that moment of realization hill. All on one side of the table and the problem is on the other side. I think when you start approaching the problem more than the people more attacking the problem more than it seemingly challenging might team or. You're challenging me. I think it's once you're able to kind of make that shift and addressing some chronic managers can ditch be in order. Dave is again if they come from technical background orders. They come from a certain domain order. They come from a particular familiarity. Yuma feel you know the answer. And it's the same for the decided the house. If it's a product for instance. Each of us feels. I'm a prospect of using and i know exactly how my journey looks like and this is exactly how every customers went to do it. I think the best way to approach some of those would intend to should tolerate. Here's on the table but we have people to make the best choices for which decision needs to be made. I think when we start respecting that the team had we challenge each other beacon agree as much as we want to weaken disagree as much as you want to walk out of the room. The best solution. I think is really are able to have the good tension yet not get bogged down with like the way you summarized saying nice to have a good attention and not get bogged down with it. Thank you seem I notice that we coming to the end of this conversation bats Come close warped. Would you like to leave aspiring dodig managers or people want to take up a career in the area of tech with. It's an interesting we of looking at things right. I think one looking at career intact. It's actually a very wide. Universe are just with that lens right now. There are multiple things. I think The kind of businesses that are coming of the way technology is actually enabling. Different possibilities did assume any new trends strains can be driven by cutting edge innovation in the technology space or by the application to a certain industry or the application to a certain type of business. Right i mean think of the ubers and really created the platform economy that we've seen in the last decade before that. We had a lot of technology driven innovations which were mostly impacting. The way we communicated to experience is a big thing. Virtual reality is just expanding the whole thing in a different way. I think one is when you look at the role that you want to get into perhaps up sticker sabotage genetic one and then get into the product is Wins there will be things that look cool and they will be things that you believe are going to create.

But it's really a choice for for product. Folks i think for most people who want to get into product management. My first advises for strengthening. What really does a product manager. Do and what it takes to be a good product manager and then you can decide for yourself if that's something that you will enjoy doing for the rest of your part of your career.

And i have a chance to contribute for different forums mostly on product diversity. Is the topic clues to hurt and beneath that. I think a little bit on the inside there was a little bit of a sportsperson boy. That's a little bit of me. I'm chitra kissy my no wonder you said dimensions. I can see so many of them and looking forward to what comes out in the course of this conversation. Where did the interest in technology begin. How did you get the choosing technology as your destination of choice. It's interesting. I'll go back to this and for some of us who were back in son's old now. I'm actually a civil engineer. It may engineering from. Cop implement gutless. Campus i was actually working with the structure consultant and wiling always felt during my college days. I was more a site person than than a design or an office person sometimes as distant he would have it. I was doing stuff on the design than it was on the same but i loved it. I think a lot of foundational lessons then. There was it in the initial year or so. I think i was thinking to my sand lake what they did. I think i like technology. But i'm not really geeky. If you know what. I mean i think i still love to be able to people in between problems and which is when i was making johnston it came to further. Studies should an msn pick type around visit mode of nba thoughts. And i think i landed with the latter and in that course of the journey i actually picked my first role in technology with a company colleague in communications. It was a customer facing will and taught. While i was doing this. It would be good to see what customers do and get to learn that for a little bit. So that's how. I really got started macclesfield. Things said yes to something. Let's raise exploration started interesting. I have two questions and start with the first. One is transitioned from a site person to a design person from a civil engineer to a person in technology and software. Take place it. It's quite a journey active and a look back and i think of it It's it's been an interesting ride to when i joined iga in an i took up my first role in technology company. I honestly didn't know who locked. In fact at that point. I think a lot of folks where i mean i had to his. I paused in the batch off. Ninety nine which has been not to hiring was happening. Lift trade center so they were all kinds of developer jobs. Programming jobs at general did a little bit of. I really didn't enjoy it at heart so much. So i said no. That's not what i'm going to do. I think that's that's weird kind. And i made a promise to myself unless failing doing things at least three times. I wouldn't do it for a living intensely that has not come. I really somebody secretly heartache. So when i was acting again. I think the choice of the next best choice when we really was united muslim to customers and this world that i had really give me a way good or pushing to believe that the first year years i spent in a technical account management and sales like most companies are primary markets but in the us in europe. We will looking to expand in australia middle southeast asia india and the middle east likely. It happens again in most jobs. You i need revenue before you can start making investments subaru really a small team kind of put out there and write trump doing our demos to making our calls to putting on the jacket and going in for meetings working with our leaders to close deals and really seeing it through till things went. Live david really just sworn into division. And i think it has been one of the most key points of my career wherever you got to see how customers make buying decisions. How multiple aspects that go into making a choice there are different influences. Different buyers did are different users at the same time you don't deal with just one or few prospects at the same time from an often perspective you need to be relevant to a larger chunk out there. You really don't have an opportunity to daler rich to the if you know what i mean and all this in a life in sales it's really about zero one So you'll become really. You know you win it or you lose a deal and you can't have an in between in terms of your change of school or let's do it differently or let's do a for smudging. I mean you just get it or you lose it. I think it also makes her engine in a different way. I think a lot of the empathy for how customers by why and the focus on her really solving real problems. Because that's when someone is willing to put money on the table lighting are lessons that stick with me. Even today i mean. I put different had sawn on different days and when i'm looking proposal even today i tend to put that on saying here. This looks exciting for us. But is it going to be the same thing. That's how it. I kind of started getting more. Doppler was more market first and then later was heading up person dough product management. This was like more than fifteen years ago. Many people did it and for me. It was in in any enterprise sales. You can do two or three big deal at any given point in time. You're ahead an opportunity to bring all the learnings that had bring goes contributions back into building something for the market. And hence i since stayed in this combination of. Let's look at problems. Working technology do and we have people to make that happen somewhere in that equation again in different rules either. In a more pure play product management had in some cases it has been innovation centric. I also ran a social impact star. certain point in time But really your swear from a civil engineer being on the site to getting to people looking at the market and really you're trying to build something that can create value for business for users and jenny fan of from stuck it on and is still on and i still find that. Triangulation is a good place of challenge and an opportunity. Nice cba let the things that you just said this the so much going on at any given point in your life i can imagine maybe someday you write a book a day in the life of seem as a product manager and I can only magin how rich that book will be with all your stories from your early days of stepping in to understanding technology enough to stand in front of customers and listen to their problems and perhaps cloth the right solutions for them. Close that deal. What stands out to you in the form of. Let's say one or two stories and examples that you can share with us where you were able to either provide the right solution like you said you know. A deal is either zero or one is what is looking for two examples one of each kind of zeal and Mistake leeann maybe start with zero for ascend. That's what sometimes happens in excite window.

That stuck under pressure as the takes aim why regulators are calling for crackdown in his crypto lending business and later plot twists for amc chait and theater chain operator dropping big money and big star power on its first ever nationwide tv ad but will it pay off. We'll debate that we start off these creo of earnings alerts tonight lululemon rh and game. Stop all on the move after their latest results. We're digging into each one. We kick things off with lulu which is trading at all time highs after its report seem. He's got the details sima. Melissa that is right. Lululemon shares surging in after hours trade. To what would the all time high in regular session. So here's a story. The athletic apparel retailer topping analysts estimates on both the top and bottom line along with a better than expected outlook for the third quarter and for the year. The company getting a boost from shoppers continuing to spend on workout apparel chief financial officer. Megan franks said. Our performance in the second quarter was driven by a strong response to our product offering improving productivity in our stores and sustained strength in ecommerce lululemon sales in north america rising sixty three percent year over year international sales up forty nine percent and even going into this report wall street was very bullish on lulu channel checks from piper sandler showing strong sellouts for both women's and men's apparel along with a pickup in growth. In mirror the company they acquired and while the company did see continued supply. Chain headwinds piper sandler also noting. That lulu is more insulated from freight challenges given that the company historically airfreight product verses. Its peers the conference call is underway stock up nearly twelve percent here in extent trait. Melissa what i move sima. Thankyou seema mody with the details. On lou by the way nike as well as under armour both higher in the afternoon session on the back of this guy. Downey what do you make of this quarter. Ridiculous is in one word. I mean operating margins came in twenty point six percent. The street was looking. I think for fifteen point nine percent up from thirteen point six a year ago. You know tim we're here. We talk about kager but on a two year kager. The growth rate was just off the charts. There's their their inventories are in line which suggests to me. Given the sales growth they have marches will be even better next quarter the only knock on this company that people have been making now for years is valuation that that knock has been unwarranted and clearly given this quarter. It feels like it's off to the racist. I wanna give kudos to the four analysts. Yesterday i think cowan is high in the street cowan n. Km piper and chelsea all raise their price targets ahead of earnings today. You know. I think four seventy five is high in the street. Given this quarter. I think the stock trade in incase your past monday translators not working compound. Annual growth rate is kager karen intervene. What do you. What did you make that. Seema had mentioned that airfreight was an advantage given all the supply chain disruptions. Sure in the past that was sort of a knock on the company in terms of eating into margins more so than than a cheaper way of getting goods to its stores. But here we are. It worked out great yet worked out. Great i mean that d- guy really got to the heart of it. Which was the operating margin growth so it starts with great gross margin growth so they had very good pricing not promotional at all and that sort of generally how they run but it just shows the strength of the brand and then that operating margin so as revenues grew gigantically they're able to leverage their expenses. And that's how you get operating margin growth like that. The magnitude of that growth is really extraordinary. I just saw a couple of little bits from the conference call that they had some constraints so the quarter would have actually even been better. Have they been able to get all the product and that they're already hitting. They're expecting to hit their two thousand twenty three goals in the next year. So that's kind of amazing. I it set an all time high. It should be at an all time high. It should be expensive very sadly though. I no longer own it that was. That's that is a huge bummer. But the point kudos to them execution was outstanding supply constraints means sales deferred and not sales denied. And i asked. Maybe i'm asking you from first hand experience. You being a lululemon customer non. Stop what happens. Well if it's not in stock they're gonna ship it to you. They're going to take care of you. I mean you know. Here's the most amazing thing about the quarter for me. Though mel as we look at all these numbers men's is where they are growing and it's still in the infancy as many many times. They're still plenty of growth there. Sixty nine percent of sales continues to be women so as they grow on the men's side of things and i like the fact that seema did point out the mirror as well i thought acquisition for five hundred million. I think they stole it. I think that was a great opportunity. And they took advantage of at calvin mcdonald. The ceo has done an unbelievable job of navigating things but they also were in such a great position mel going into this whole thing going into the pandemic coming out now of the pandemic all of that. This is a company that not only thrive during as people got much more casual but they continue to thrive. And i think there are a lot of folks out there new people that are finding out more and more about lululemon and i'm talking about older like passage of thirty i think there are droves of people that are gonna find themselves in lulu clothing because a it's comfortable be it looks very very. It's getting much more of a corporate look yet stays very comfortable and you look at the margins. you knew. Look at everything that both karen and guy. We're talking about in terms of the numbers. The numbers are outstanding. The the dc numbers were great and the one knock on the stock for a long period of time has been well the p. e. is stretched. Challenge this to say. Why doesn't anybody ever say that about nike. Nike trades about forty times growth. Isn't anything close to this company and yet it doesn't really come up. When you talk about nike. I find that very interesting. I think lewis got a lot more room to the upside..

"Strategy something that comes to you fairly naturally do think in terms of strategy especially having like the competitive background that you do kind of yeah. I wouldn't necessarily say so much strategy. I would say very competitive. I would probably like. I used to play chess against my irons. Like every day grownup like we net. But we'd never read kind of a rule that we went allowed to like seek strategy elsewise. And we wouldn't play against anyone else myself against my mom myself against my dad. My dad against my mom. Why was why the rule. I think we just like to compete against each one of us was like getting really good secretly. It would kind of go against like the intellectual postlewait against each other. If that made sense does make sense. But if he goes eight or nine. And like i could move a piece on the old like without them looking could win the game. I'd probably do it. I think as more concerned about winning and losing then strategy if that makes sense so my mind wasn't ready built around necessarily strategy from an early age but my mind. Was daphne build around being competitive from an early age i would say well discovery then so like i think there lots of people that hate losing that don't wanna lose but continue to lose even when they try to improve so the process of like strategy discovery the process of reassessing. Your game adding things in and out. Could you speak on that owns. I think i was more about session. So i just naturally the more you do something the better you're to be even if you're not trying too hard to get good of that makes sense. If i played if i played like one dollars thing go thousand times on you played at ten times naturally going to be better just through like lenin from reputation of might speed of improvement was quite quick but our has being very obsessive Was doing so. I wasn't necessarily like into much watching train videos. I was just playing so much that like. Let's say fifty a day. The it got to a level where just repetition and cnn stuff and like seema people would do in. I just got back the my friends to be playing. You know like two hours a week. Whatever it just arms my mind was never built around around. Strategy was always about obsession and addiction. Almost i guess i'm just wanting to play and and just like yeah like try to win the next. We'll try to win the next one. You know we used to play like forty five months singles full-tilt that was kind of a thing like it was like it was a tournament but it wasn't too long not too high various because it was forty five plays and those kind of the game that we used to. That's kind of learned vocalists

If you have a cupcake. I don't think not only do i think they won't care. I don't even think they'll notice or no if you don't eat it and also who's to say that you gotta eat the whole thing. You can't just say hey. You know. Happy birthday and have a bite and go back to eating some of your other plan foods.

"Take a diet break here and there a comeback to maintenance for a week or two and then go right back into it if you give us. The benefits of this is that you will maintain more muscle over time. Your workouts won't suffer over time And the diet won't feel like too much of a diet until you start getting really really lead so in general. I think a lot of times when we talk about someone having like a busted metabolism. And were you know that Really messed up my metabolism. Now i can't lose weight anymore. We're really talking about is where we're not totally saying it's it's total bullshit. But most of the time. Unless you're unless you're somebody who's really really restricting your calories and exercising a lot where we agree that those people could potentially be overdoing it but in general you want to try to find a better way to send more positive signals to her body. So what are the positive signals that we need in a given day. We need to show our body like. Hey we're going expend some energy but we're not going to go crazy with expending energy. We're not going to run Seventeen miles every day. We're gonna expend energy and some reasonable ways And also another signal that we want to kind of send to our bodies. We want to tell the body. Let's promote gaining muscle mass in the way that we do that is by hitting the gym and Doing exercises that. Are you know that. Utilizing resistance training toward advantage Getting resistance getting some good muscle tension. We don't want to necessarily overdue that we don't want to underdo that it's heavy off. It's heavy for you. It's not heavy comparison to anybody else. we wanna basically kind of Disrupt our muscle protein by exercising by lifting weights. And then we also wanna feed that protein through our diet through nutrition through making sure we consume enough protein each and every day another signal that we want to send to the bodies. We wanna make sure that we're not Doing things that are going to really challenge progression and that are gonna be disruptive towards us being able to release fat and us being able to hold onto muscle mass so therefore we have to also make sure that we consume enough fat calories every day so there. Hormones aren't all jacked up. This'll be. I think this is. I think that this is where most people are. Probably running into problems. Male and females that are dipping down and like thirty grams of fat today. I think that that for sure is is a great way to kind of make. Sure that you're you're screwing things up a little bit. Maybe even fasting too often because fasting would be zero grams of fat for the day. Right so you have to be cautious and some of the stuff in seema was saying there is like if you're not giving yourself enough energy then your energy output won't be nearly as good and so we need a good energy output every day in order to be able to get the proper signals to our body we need. We need to show the body and tell the body. Yeah we're going to spend some calories everyday doing some things that are in our best interest walking. Maybe some sprints or something like that. but we're also gonna be lifting some weights here and their help promote muscle mass and one thing. We always talk about it. But let's not forget with all of this if you're dieting and you're going into a hard deficit you need to get good sleep. You absolutely need. You could sleep because if you're getting minimal sleep while you're putting your body under stress and you're dieting and you're trying to work out You won't last long. You won't last long at all You will have more cravings. Your your grellet will increase your left and you're gonna be a human trash compactor And you'll think the diets not working this diets. It's not good for me but if you're not getting sleep you're already setting yourself up to have massive failure. Another thing that we kinda mentioned off air is when you go into a diet k. Caloric restriction is a stressor in and of itself. But now you're working out while you're caloric restricted And if when you start getting really lean if things get very intense you might literally feel more and more stressed out. We know that your you get more stressed. You have an increase in cortisol and one thing that a lot of people that they do shows a lot etc some people when they hit a sticking point as far as their diet they might hit a sticking point for a minute. There's a few ways to go about it. Some people come and they do. A dive. Brakes bring their calories up. Maybe they Stay there for a little bit and that works. Sometimes you make bring your calories up by thirty percent or something stay there for a week. Bring it back down and you start dropping again but one thing that is actually really beneficial. I've had. I've had somebody do this. Where like just don't work out for four days. Don't work out. Don't go to the gym and bring calories up by like forty percent just for a few days because they were really breaking stressed. Actually have someone about to do this with. Because i can tell but within those four days they dropped like eight pounds and you might as marijuana told you that i dropped. Hell wall i ate. I ate all that all you can eat. Sushi gay like eleven pounds. I didn't gain that much body fat. A lot of what i had on my body was water and i wasn't stressed but when you are very stressed you can hold onto a lot of water so much that can be fairly surprising and my stopping that activity a little bit and all the enough eating a little bit more food just a little bit so you can de-stress think about something else. You can drop extra weight you can actually drop a little bit extra body fat. Then you start diving again. You'll be able to go back into it. Fresh feeling good and.

"Things like that. And i think one one thing. I hear happening often as people will use the word need. You know. they'll say i. I have to have this before. I train because i you know. I need that supply of energy and what we through fasting and sometimes fasting is not always the right move but What we learned through intermittent fasting and through people doing some extended fasting is. It doesn't appear that you need to have food necessarily rape before you work out. We have something called glycogen stores. And a lot of times you can have access to that energy Even if you ate it six hours before eight hours before. And i would even argue and say that the thing that you eat thirty or forty minutes before your exercise i don't even know how available i mean i'd like to see more research on that because i just don't even understand how it could be available so quickly unless you had a really fast acting car. Something like some form of liquid or something like that so you know. I think it's interesting. Because i think that people are kind of consistently thinking. They need to do this. I need to do that. They'll think cheat meal is going to rev up their metabolism. They are like i need. I need to do that once a week. I need to overeat. And actually some of the research will show overeat. Overeating is such a weird trick. Over-consuming your calories Doesn't really satiate you the way that you would think it actually will set you up for the next day to where you're romanticizing the next day about eating those same foods and overeating once again and it can be can be helpful. I don't don't want to say that it's not helpful. But it can be helpful to overeat here and there. They can be helpful to eat some things that are off plan here and there but just recognize those things can be kind of dancing around in your head the next day as well we have to fight them off for about two three days. And then you're good again and then you'll find yourself as an seema's pointing out you'll find yourself off than you were before so you go on a strict plan for a while you follow follow follow it get yourself super lean and then there's going to be a time where you're on a different type of plan with some different goals. That's why because the question about cheat meals always comes up There there's okay so there's a few ways.

Why It Matters
WhatsApp Pay to Launch in India
"India a potentially decisive moment in digital freedom is going down right now. India's ruling party has put forward new rules that would allow it to trace and censor private communication. Standing in. Its way is what's up. An American made encrypted Messaging Platform. That's used by hundreds of millions of Indians and the outcome could have ripple effects across the globe. I'm Gabrielle Sierra. And this is why it matters today. India's government versus what's up and the looming threat of digital authoritarianism. India is the world's largest democracy if you can imagine nine hundred. Million PEOPLE VOTED. Alas national election last year out of a population of one point. Three billion people. It's just it's it's a massive exercise election. Yeah it's huge it's populace and that's what also makes it really fun and exciting to be on the ground. You certainly feel the energy especially in the city like Mumbai. Politicians routinely insult each other on the campaign trail criminals of every flavor. Run for office and win so do Bollywood movie. Stars Cricket Stars it just never ends has always been a fairly Jackie democracy. We talk a lot. We argue a lot that our culture. Okay so help me understand why. What's APP is such a big deal in India? How many people are actually using it? They're awfully four hundred million people. It is indeed this is Chinmaya ruined. She's a resident fellow at Yale. University and the founder of a research center at National Law University Delhi. She's also a leading legal expert on the intersection between freedom of speech and technology. And so why WHATSAPP wine? Not you know instagram or snapchat. The elite platforms are used by everyone. But what's happened? The one that really appeals to people if you have a phone that's not too fancy. If you don't speak English you don't read or you don't have access to inexpensive data connection. You can still use. What's APP so it started with? Hey you don't have to spend one rupee or two rupees per tax. You just save them up and then they send whenever you're in Wifi and saw a lot of people with not lot of money. Which is many many Indians decided that this works for them. And then what's up had these multimedia features which people started using it started liking and? I have mixed feelings about this because the good thing is that I get to talk to my grandma. And she finally has forgiven me for moving across cushy can look at my home and you know say things about my plants or whatever course but if you're sitting in an Indian airport and watching the number of people who do video calls subject you to their conversations mixed feelings what's up is really a messaging platform and that can be one messages like me sending a message to you. But it's also very commonly used in India for groups. I am do oil and I am a technology reporter for the New York Times based in Mumbai. India vindaloo also covers Indian economics and culture and has written extensively about free speech and misinformation under India's ruling party. We called him at his home in Mumbai on. What's up what's has become so embedded in life in India that people use it in their business transactions so you can order groceries from your corner grocery store over what's APP. I buy airline ticket from make trip. Which is one of the big online travel agencies? They send me a confirmation message on what's up with by e ticket details so for those of US based outside of India handling a basic transaction may require a few different platforms. You find out about a concert on instagram. Rsvp FOR IT ON FACEBOOK. Maybe share the notification on twitter buyer ticket on ticketmaster and received the confirmation on g mail but for Indians. What's APP is often the one stop shop for everything? In other words an application from Silicon Valley has become basic infrastructure for the second most populous nation honors. That's a pretty big deal and it helps. Illuminate why the government is pushing for greater control. What's up was founded in two thousand nine by two former employees of Yahoo? It's an American company. It was founded in Silicon Valley and they basically built a very simple messaging service became very popular. It caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the chief executive and founder of Facebook Zuckerberg beside it in two thousand fourteen to by what's APP and pay the still stock price of twenty two billion dollars for this message company so facebook is making a mobile push with steal the buy real time messaging service. What's APP? It's still a pretty incredible price to pay for a company that stress a few years old. It also makes tiny what's APP more valuable than some of the most established companies in the country including American Airlines Marriott hotels and Xerox and it came at a crucial moment for facebook when it really was trying to find ways to diversify its revenue base and also get in touch with more mobile users. I'm Seema mody global markets correspondent with CNBC business news and suddenly came this messaging platform. That was not only gaining prominence here in the US but around the world in fact I believe the average daily use a rate on WHATSAPP was much higher than Facebook Messenger. Facebook saw that and said this is such a strategic bet for us. Let's acquire it and find a way to really incorporated into our user base platform. But what's APP is free right. What's APP is free? And I think this is still a developing story to see how facebook is really trying to incorporate what's up into its business and you know will you one day see ads on what's that that's certainly been one of the big questions sucker. Berg was pressure in that. This technology of very simple messaging APP was going to become very popular today. Whatsapp has more than two billion users. Around the world it is by far the most popular messaging APP in the world and one of its biggest claims to fame. Is it emphasizes privacy. All messages on the service use. Something called end to end encryption. Okay so in most cases when you send an email or a text message it gets encrypted that means that the information inside is locked up in a code so that outsiders can't read it however the service providers that pass your message along can read it whether that's apple or G. Mail or facebook whoever they all have the keys to that code and that makes your message vulnerable enter end to end encryption with this technology none of the men have the keys. Only you and the person you're sending it to break the code. What's up can't read. Even if the government came knocking at the door of what's up what's up. What have nothing really to give up. And so your information is private and that makes it unique to other services messaging services like whether you're sending a text message or even facebook Messenger where that information does live somewhere. Yeah most other. Messaging Services in the world are not and encrypted and certainly none of the popular ones. But what's up has made it really easy. You don't think about corruption it just is encrypted Because so much of India's communication happens on WHATSAPP end to end. Encryption has made it very difficult for the government to investigate messages in the name of national security. People are not making phone calls anymore. They're not even walking over to their neighbor. Say This texting and where the speech there is harmful speech. It's not news that social media can bring out the worst in people the platforms. We use everyday are teeming with sexism. Racism misinformation and violent ideologies. It's the same. In India or social media has amplified problems that are a lot older than the internet rumors and lies spread like wildfire across the Internet including across chat and applications. Like WHATSAPP Many I. I'm used US India or live. Whatever comes in the woods his true the one that's really made the headlines is there was a lot of fishers. He'd speed circulating on what's APP so for example. The Muslim community is under quite a lot of pressure in India. Right now and it's really sad one of the ways in which they're discriminated against is that some upper caste. Hindus don't eat beef and so the rumors circulating on what's apple say things like X. has beef in his fridge are why is transporting COW CARCASS. And since it's already been sold to people as it stretched to their religion when a rumor like that reaches people that already feel threatened and feel like these people are out to get all the Hindus and they're trying to destroy religion by eating beef and Lynch mobs attacked them and their popularly called. What's APP lynchings? Early twenty eighteen. There was a wave of false messages. On whatsapp about child kidnappers prowling parts of India. Trying to steal people's children and this panicked a lot of people and mobs attacked strangers in various parts of India and killed them. Beat the Tied the mob hung them all kinds of terrible things. More than twenty people died in just the span of a few months because of these rumors and after these rumors started appearing the central government. When after what's happened said you need to find a way to trace these messages and stop these messages. And this set off a feud with what's out that has still not been resolved. The government says it doesn't WanNa read your messages. The government says they don't want to spy on the content of messages. They're not asking what's up to break the encryption of messages and show them what's in the messages but they are saying. Is You need to be able to trace back the pathway of a message. And you have to find a way to do that because if you have some message goes viral we WANNA find out who sent it and we'll see what happens. I mean what's up has said that to that would require significant changes to their service and they haven't said whether they'd be willing to make such changes to their

"Care here at home president trump releasing is a three phased approach to eventually opening up parts of the economy and some states but you've heard lack of testing lack of testing lack of testing and we need eventual widespread testing to re open in the entire country well here's what White House chroniclers task force coordinator Dr Deborah Burks had to say about the discrepancy between not enough testing and we need mass testing errors and she said she's working with local governors on a number out there definitely sort yes so I mean I I think you've heard me talk about tests for awhile from the podium and I think what has happened over the last several weeks is hospitals and and clinics that could move to the more point of care test moved to those point of care test and what its left is an amazing array of capacity that exist in the country for at least a million more tests per week so we have a whole team working lap by lap to see what it would take to turn on all of those labs that aren't running that pieces of equipment now so you see in the system I just said to you there's a million more tasks per week that we have test sitting there and equipment sitting there and now we have to really deal with each single lab to really figure out what they need and I just want to thank administrator Verma Seema Verma who went through with us and that thanks to the lab directors say really explained to us highly technical difficulty to run some of these big pieces of equipment that you have to Allah cart the samples you have to send their future to put them on the machine takes a tech full time at fifty dollars a test it wasn't enough to hire another technician to run the machine full time so a hundred dollars a test it is so those the kinds of changes we have to make bit by bit by bit but that alone doubles are testing capacity per week so we're committed to work with laboratories to answer every one of their issues with the state and local governments and I think frankly every conversation I have in the governors will say I need five thousand people tested and I say well at the university of axe there are sixty seven hundred tests waiting for you so it's more of it making sure that every governor and every public health official knows exactly where every lab is and where the test are so we can create with them a real understanding so all these tests can be run so yes there is is twice the capacity
The Majority Report with Sam Seder
Trump rule could lead to big Medicaid cuts, governors warn
"Tell folks what has happened in terms of Medicaid in particular. I guess let's start way the way you did. What are the proposed cuts to Medicare that the trump administration the station has been talking about the proposed cuts to Medicare You know I think it started with their rollout of increased privatization of Medicare with increasing Medicare advantage. uh-huh Plans Kober last year in the lakes and Florida Trump you know reported in Vanity Fair that he said it would be fun. Second Term Project to cut Medicare and then in a couple of weeks ago now in Davos Switzerland he was talking. NCNB CNBC and he said Yesterday the fact that would be on the table cutting cutting Medicare in those social security and he said that would be the easiest thing to do very strange choice of words. So that's kind of the Medicare and that's what I started with. That's why I was in Des Moines that day with the committee to protect Medicare talking about these possible Medicare cuts with you know doctors from Iowa that join me for a press conference One Press When one member of the press showed up at that press conference now you know a little bit more of the presses is listening to the line that we're calling out at my committee about these proposed cuts it's And then you know because of the news of the day. Last Thursday was Davis encounter occurred in that was the day that Seema Verma the cms administrator for trump mm rolled out these Block grant Waiver proposal. That you know everyone I can see. That is talking about this. In an honest this way tells us this will cut folks from Medicaid. Okay and so tell us. CMS The centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when they roll out this proposal are they actually just basically introducing. They're they're basically announcing that you can you as a state Can apply for a waiver. Is that right right. Apply for a waiver. Currently Medicaid is funded by the federal government on a kind of a per person per need basis. So you know. For instance when there's a recession and more people lose jobs and more people qualify for Medicaid. The federal share of spending on healthcare for those folks will go up because of course they need that you know people with diabetes if they have a job or they lose their jobs to no fault of their own still. Have they still need three hundred dollars a month insulin slim so with block grant States could say listen Why don't you just give us a lump sum of money? And then let us in the where he used was innovate let us innovate. Ah figure out how to cover anyone cover everyone but you know if the needs go up in our state. We still get that that pot of money that you're giving us it doesn't change and yet our needs go up so more people lose out the other thing they can do is choose to cut certain services they can you know cut certain drugs that are that are. Currently they covered up a prescription drug benefit under Medicaid. So I mean I mean it is just cut. There's no way around it. And there's no way that pence didn't understand that Seema. Burma used to be his Medicaid Administrator in the state of Indiana when he was governor there so this has been a conservative dream for for ages decades thirty years. They've been trying Graham. They've been trying to block grant and and so. There's there's like you say there's multiple problems that come with the block. Granting one is that it does not act as that economic stabiliser in other words doesn't doesn't Basically expand as the the need gets greater in crises. It also does not a increase along with the cost of medicine and And like you say the states can get sort of clever because the federal government has basically said I mean this is the difference between just sort of you know me me giving ten bucks to my kid and saying you know do whatever you want with it as opposed to making sure that she spends it on you know not on on junk food or whatever it is and and she can then go out and basically spend five bucks on the. I want to keep this metaphor too much but the idea is that they can use this money in other ways that I really don't have anything to do with providing health insurance for people right and my governor is Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who gave you know. I thought an amazing response to the state of the Union last night and I was there and we talked beforehand. And she's she helped. Uh sure in expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act when she was the minority leader of the State Senate here in Michigan and got a Republican governor to expand Medicaid. And we've had you know. Nearly three three quarters of million folks in Michigan Benefit from that Their study I think Carter. Kaiser family reported recently specifically Michigan showing the economic economic benefits of expanded Medicaid. The fear was that the federal government was going to give them a hundred percent in the first year and then scaled back to I think ninety percent of eventually by next year and the reality is even though the federal share has scaled back because people are healthier because they can afford treating their chronic illnesses. They can work more they. The actual tax base has increased. I think thirty thousand jobs in Michigan created directly resulted expanded Medicaid. So I you know this is. It just doesn't make sense to me that they try and and I think that's why he dodged the question and tried to revert back to things he did. And and then eventually just said agree to disagree because He knows what it is they. They held him what it is and they know if they say what it is. People won't like it you know. It's an election year. They're trying to get reelected so they just say whatever they want they lie will and state of the Union almost solely healthcare allies again about every other aspect of healthcare. And you know I think they just say what they want they get away with it. He just wasn't expecting to meet up with a guy in tyner who you know. I mean again. I don't know this issue like a policy. Wonk I mean I just I have a biology degree in a medical degree and I work clinically as a doc but I read you know and I and I try to learn as much as I can and so you know with my limited understanding of these policies he just. He wasn't ready for that one briefed them known gave them talking points. And I think that's. That's that's what we saw unfold. Yeah he did look like a deer in the headlights and we did try to dance around it quite a bit. You were pretty easy. Road brought in on them pretty quickly I think as he tried to sort of pretend like he didn't understand what you said the first thing. It just didn't that first exchange where you said. You're going to get cuts and Medicaid. 'cause I don't think we're GONNA do cuts in Medicare and so we'll give us. I mean So you know firsthand. The implications of this expanded Medicaid and and and I WANNA get into that as just your experiences as as an emergency doctor but I also get the sense. You're on this You're you're you're you're executive director of this committee you're in Iowa so you're aware at at least some of the you know the broader politics involved in this. Where would you anticipate what states or at least you know if not specific ones than the profile of the states eight? That are going to be applying for this waiver. I mean presumably the thirteen states. Now that did not expand Medicaid under the affordable. Care Act. I would imagine would be a prime targets or prime applicants to get this waiver. Because they're going to continue you. Say we're going to expand medicaid. They certainly are interested in dismantling it as much as they can right. I think that and I think you know anywhere that there is a Republican And I guess I have to. I don't know the nuances of the directive if it's if it's an executive decision at the state level or if it requires you know something passing through their houses so we have enough house majority Republican state legislatures plus governorships. In this country that I I mean I think that would be the profile. You know certainly because those will be the places where you know folks are more likely to be in charge that share vice president pence views on you know on Medicaid in general in a and and whether or not we should be helping out poor people when it comes to healthcare That that is that's the fear now. And why should we in Michigan you you know. Why should we in Michigan? Have a different set of. I mean the whole healthcare system. So Patchwork in Hodgepodge if you WANNA call it a system a series of systems. But it's so patrick work anyways I mean I guess why should this be any different. Let's let certain states do one thing and others do the other. And if you just happen to be born in Michigan versus Alabama. Well you know good on you right Well there's so much in our society today that's determined that way it's all just a coin toss and met. I guess maybe a bunch of coins get tossed in the air. What now? There's a vote tomorrow in the house. I Don I imagine you're familiar with it. And what the what the vote is is it's under the The CRA which has been used in the past to see the Congressional Review Act. It's been used in the past undo executive the actions that have been done within a certain timeframe and the Republicans did this with a bunch of executive actions by Obama and then once they do that once they pass that to reinstitute any type of rule like that Congress has to has to authorize it with a two thirds vote right so this is like this is a this is a real this is a sledgehammer as it were and they're going to. They're going to vote on this in the house and they will probably pass yes it which would not allow the president to block grant but then it goes to the Senate and the Republicans are sure to shoot it down. How do you think this plays as has a An issue in the fall when you have a half dozen or so Republican senators running in sort of purple states on their refuse their essential like voting to allow for cuts and Medicaid right. Yeah and I and I kind of anxious to see what folks looks like Like Collins I mean she seems the only one in the purple state that I think might make along with this I think you know tell us and and MC sally the and who is a gardener I think is already toast You know maybe Joni Ernst I don't know Yeah I mean I think at least I mean the thing is having having gone record. I mean that's That's I think that's all that's what we're trying to do as a committee. I mean what we're what we're rolling out over. The next. Several months is is an accountability campaign.

Jim Cramer: Buying opportunities to hedge against coronavirus sell-off
"If your day with average rebounded like crazy. I love to tell you can stop worrying about this corona virus outbreak two billion buying like a bowl in twenty not Cosima twenty-seven SARS twenty two thousand three even Chernobyl nine thousand nine hundred six all these disasters worldly contained. Our milk was still good. The radioactive you active waves didn't rush onto point two may or induce. You know they figured out SARS before it killed thousands of people. There were no mass uprisings or death Phil cruise use ships were fatal subway cars from aboard each time. There was a major panic. The panic was overdone. As soon as it got out of hand turns out the stumbling. bumbling authorities can actually stop this kind of thing with the help of well meaning but in over their heads scientists even but there was no andromeda strain of contagion or super flew there was just very frightened population including a special subset of frighten investors and the people have every right to work. The truth is we don't know enough about this. New Epidemic and investors are terrified of the unknown. Because you can't quantify something you don't understand seema she contributor Scott Gottlieb former head of the FDA. He may have said it best this this morning. Let's play this. The problem is we don't know what they're really looking at. I think the Chinese haven't been forthcoming with information so even paying them on the back for being good actors in this case because they're behaving better than they did with SARS. They're still not behaving well. They've they've concealed key information including that this resprayed healthcare workers which they didn't admit to last week so we don't really know the full scope of what what they're facing. I suppose that they're facing a very large epidemic and they're taking pretty draconian measures. Some of these are not gonNA work. Quarantines might not be effective. I I found it very worrisome. Was it scare scary. Well let's just say again set-backs up. We are hearing people speculate. Maybe China doesn't have a handle on the disease at all maybe L. Spread as Chinese people flee over the world. Maybe we're looking at the second coming of the Spanish flu that killed fifty to one hundred million dollars in one thousand nine hundred eighty. I actually read that it yesterday. In a barasheet that would scare you not just out of the market but certainly out of the country. Maybe an article. I think it's wrong but it's very easy to spread fear at times like this. Let me put it this way. Suppose I tell you to stick with history of Shinola and get us a source of building. Food didn't get us then. The virus outbreak probably won't get us either. But what happens because if an American who wasn't who hasn't been Wuhan die of the disease. Well then you better believe people go back into panic boat. The market will get hammered. I'm usually to be prepared for that. And that is the problem. I believe this outbreak will turn out to be only a buying opportunity. Eventually emphasised Benchley. I'm not sure we heard last panic today. Spite the fact we had a really nice snapback I can. Yes if you own. Certain stocks traded did well. We just have no way of knowing if things go badly. Stocks could have downside of for the worst is behind it. But we'll be behind us. I have a not an epidemiologist still I refuse to pander to the panic in us. That's why I recommend buying shares some high equality companies that will do just fine even if the krona virus outbreak. TURNS OUT TO BE THE WORSE THAN WE'RE GONNA influence which typically puts hundreds of thousands of people in the hospital and causes tens of thousands of deaths. That's what we did yesterday for. My child will trust but you can foul by joining plus DOT COM now. We didn't tell club members to scaling scaling either be advised. Take some profits today. So that you'd have some money on the sidelines in preparation for the next scary coronavirus headline and there will be a next next one Kinsley. If let's say the impeachment trial runs course. At the end of the day there are more people working to contain this disease and they do a powerful. The didn't exist. When the source epidemic hit think rapid gene sequencing and modern antiviral drugs until we know for sure though their attempts to get things under control whooping with skepticism and derision and some by some bearish commentators who are very smart and very motivated very motivated to scare you and to send stocks doc down? Unfortunately their motivation is let's just say working With their terrifying interpretation of cold hard facts many which are available by the way in Jimmy chills twitter feed and posted pretty regularly and are frankly very nauseating in other words panic. Do be aware that we could have laid down if if the course of. This outbreak gives the hardcore pessimist warning

So the first big multi messenger discovery that people really he point to Supernova nine hundred ninety seven nineteen eighty-seven nine hundred eighty seven nineteen eighty-seven a which was detected in neutrinos as well as in in light a sense then the reason that we're now hearing about this. so much was the neutron star Neutron Star merger that occurred in two two thousand seventeen so thirty years later and that particular discovery which I've heard heard estimates of one in ten astronomers to three in ten years in the world depending on how you count. Astronomers worked on that particular discovery well that one was detected across gravitational waves all kinds of the electromagnetic spectrum and with so many different kinds times of detections going on with so many different people. This of course started everyone talking about multi Multi Messenger Strana me and also asking. Hey can we have funding dedicated to what we've been piecemeal together on our own on. So now we're starting to see these funded coordinated efforts where you have high altitude cosmic ray detectors in in Mexico working in coordination with buried in ice neutrino detectors in Antarctica in combination with gravitational tation wave detectors spanning all around our planet to together try and understand our universe and so like when radio waves. Microwaves visible infrared x rays gamma rays. That's all part of the electromagnetic spectrum and that kind of work has been done for for decades that you will look at something in both radio waves and in visible light and we call that that multi wavelength multi wavelength. Because it's essentially still just the same thing it's just photons right and so you're you're only really seeing it in one dimension. So can you explain. I mean it's useful but can you explain why it's not as as useful as starting to bring these other technologies on board well at at the end of the day thanks to this whole equals. MC squared the thing. We are able to have energy and matter transition back and forth in different ways through different astrophysical processes. So if you have a good old happy hot star hanging out somewhere. In the universe it's going to be generating light in a whole variety of the different colors in those colors are function of temperatures the star and if it happens to be flaring doing something particularly dramatic you may may get physics that has also on top of that generating xrays brand Marie high energy events but in general a nice good old fashioned black body radiation is what we call this warm object star hanging out is just GonNa be giving off photons of light that we can detect here On Earth and by looking at different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum we're probing different kinds of activities. were seeing everything from how the atmosphere of the star is absorbing out different colors of light telling us well what's the composition of the star we see radio radio signals that are starting to tell us about the environment around the star. Everything's different physical process. In a different piece of information right and at at the end of the day photons or photons and so and so in most circumstances you're GonNa see this nice smooth black body curve that you would expect expect to see and then as you said if you get like Aurora's on Jupiter then you might get a burst of x rays or if you're seeing some kind of radio emission from from your some magnetic field reconnection on the sun then you're going to get something else but so let's talk about. What are the avenues of? What are the new other other ways that we can perceive the universe and we should've quickly went through a bunch of them? Let's take some time now and then talk about what we've got. What astronomers have at their disposal so with with photons for using the electromagnetic spectrum with other things were still able to do that to a degree? so M- yuan's for instance. There are kind of particle that gets formed in our upper atmosphere. When high energy particles hit the atmosphere energy gets turned into a particle L. and those particles get detected at the surface of our planet Thanks to how they interact with different electric packets. Basically you can go to a variety of museums. See these setups. FLASH OF LIGHT WILL OCCUR WHEN IMMU- on hits the system and what we're seeing here is okay. Something with a lot of energy occurred at the top of the atmosphere created particles particles particles went at close to the speed of light changing their own experience of time as they did so until the interacted at the surface of our planet. So this doesn't get a lot of information about where the particles came from. And this is actually something that you're GonNa hear me repeat so we can detect mu on's at the surface of our world. That's cool we know there's cosmic rays because we see static on our television set when we're taking images with the CCD era Seema's chip. We'll see these bright blown out pixels. This is from particles either generated in granite and other slightly radioactive active rock. That's coming up from the planet or it's created by something that made it through our solar systems outer boundary traveled through the solar system and traveled through the atmosphere and made a massive itself. I've got an analogy that that I like to use with this is that it's kind of like watching fireworks especially if you're like under underneath the fireworks and so use the firework goes off and you see the bright flash of the actual firework itself and then you might see other flashes of other sub parts of the firework go off but if you're close enough and if you've ever like I dunno shot You know the big close up you can like sometimes like dust will fall down on from the the fireworks which is just like the particles that are made up in it will rain down tonight. You've got like sort of two separate pieces of evidence that a that firework went off. You're seeing the light but you're also seeing feeling the particles that are that are landing around around you but then you also can hear it. You can hear the sound waves from the fireworks that are coming from it and if you know if if a really precise seismometers when those booms are going off or when the firework is firing it will be shaking the ground and you would be able to detect the motion of that and each one is almost like a completely different way of sensing that these fireworks are are happening. And it's all each one tells you more information about what happened. And they're they're all independent. which is which is the key here? So cosmic rays are darkest like the toughest one right. Yeah they're and they're the toughest one to be able to. We don't know still what's really causing the most energetic these right so so to continue with your analogy that dust. That AH hitting you. It's been blown by the wind. It's been caught in various updrafts interacted with birds wings in some cases and all these different interactions with the dust. Experiences between being generated in that fireworks burst and dusting you. Those hide where it came came from. You can't trace back the path to figure out exactly where the fireworks occurred and with cosmic. Rays these are charged particles as charged charged particles. Move through the universe they're going to encounter a myriad of different magnetic fields in each of these different magnetic fields is going to deflect that charged particle one way another possibly multiple over different interactions over time. So when we see these cosmic raise and any of the myriad of different detectors we have scattered about the surface of our planet. Well we have no idea where they came from

Chipotle shuts Ohio restaurant after reports of illness
"Or we'll go back to pass money. We've got a market flash on chip poli that stock is going down after our Seema Mody has warned the details. Sima Brian pulled lay shutting down a restaurant in Powell Ohio after reports that customers got severely ill now, spokesperson for japodlay telling business insider. We take all claims of food safety very seriously, and we are currently looking into a few reports of illness at our Powell Ohio restaurant. The restaurant is expected to reopen on Tuesday. CBC has reached out to japodlay for confirmation. The stock is down about two point, seven percent right now, Seema thank you very much for.
