Dr. Cassandra Pierre on COVID-19 in Massachusetts

"With us. Today dr cassandra. Peer returns dr piers acting hospital epidemiologist and an infectious diseases physician at boston. Medical center welcome back. Dr pierre great to be here and we have a new addition to ask the docs this week. Dr eileen costello. The chief of ambulatory pediatrics. Also at boston medical center dr castillo. Nice to have you join us. Welcome to ask the doctors my pleasure being here all right so dr pierre. I'm going to start with you. We are seeing we. We've got this these competing data points. Okay we're seeing an increase in cases in massachusetts roughly seventeen percent more cases in the state last week over the week before according to the state's department of public health at the same time the commonwealth is still ranked forty fourth among us states where corona virus is spreading the fastest. So most states have it worse than we do right now weighing those two kind of data points. How concerned are you about delta right now in massachusetts. Well i think he really to let go of the concern You know we're in a point whereas you've been mentioning. Schools are reopening. Some businesses are reopening as well and many have been incredibly thoughtful about the plans for reopening in terms of distancing and vaccine recommendations and masks But you know as we come back from labor day weekend. There's always the concern of having an intensifying number of cases that is spread within those work school and then social networks The nice thing. Well the thing that we have to fall back on as are higher relative relatively higher vaccination rates so our hope is that we will not see an increase as high as we did last fall and winter however there is some evidence that there probably will be a continued increase in november of cases that we see.

"Earning season is back for tech companies and for the first time in a while we have a new narrative net flicks reported revenue that beat expectations slightly.

To Trap or Not to Trap?

"A couple today where i made very very good hands On the river at really only had the question of whether it was better to check or it's better to check where it's better to just go for value ourselves or the hands. Yeah i i wasn't sure which. Which line would be better. So what i have to ask you about today. Did you say broughton is that. I think that's brought not say that. Oh it's already been broughton okay. So since brought in these hands. Let's look at this. This king queen first and then after the break. What's the hand that you have after the break. I know keeps ace king. You've leveled up one down if we're moving up to the king after king queens green suited to it's not the bill king queen off suit that we usually thousand dollars off worth could if we look at it based on ratio though you know we got three to one off suit to suited. Tomato very ends is just and have a bunch of king. Queen students now Goals so let's dive into his hand. Hand number one replying three handed Looks like john has let the blinds go through them without reloading. Your so you've got about ninety. Seven big blinds. The biden opens the twenty-five. Looks like they are a rag playing about one hundred ten big blinds you three to eleven blinds with the king queen suited. I think we can safely say nothing to talk about here. And now you get four but from the button tell me about that. Still think there's a spot where there's not much to talk about not gonna do anything other than just call with king queen suited every single time. This comes up. I think is for about sizing is pretty good yet for the podcast listener. They four back to forty five. So john goes ahead and calls with this king and his queen. There is now four ninety five in the pot. John has seven thirty behind so sprs little bit more than one. We could flop of ace queen nine with the ace of diamonds to reinforce the podcast listener. John has the king queen of diamonds. Here so you check and the villain bats. What is that like quarter. Yeah just about a quarter pot. That's again the size that i would expect and the to be using basically this villain has done nothing to change my opinion that he's anything but a pretty decent looking Yeah i mean quarter pot for about pot. Everything's pretty standard up to this point with middle pair. Here really only have one option. Yeah i mean even that one option kind of. Yeah i mean. Obviously we're not holding back reflect throwback trade trump. It'll pair to quarter pot. But i'm already sort of not loving it and you know like the ways unless the turn is a queen. I still think like i'm never. I'm never going to be like loving my hand. I think it's hard for the button. Find four bet bluffs. That don't include an ace. I think like just the most standard Of bluff is sent off suit. And then you know some players will make some hands. I king five suited and king for suited. Yeah i'm not living this flop at all. I think if. I do have the best hand. What i'm praying for is that it just gets checked down most of the times. Well just jacks or something. If there's one thing. I'm proud of after a year of private coaching with you it's it. You don't hate it but you're calling in so nice right over the days of like hating it and it so much that you fold now. Why can't i don't know if i can call turner river so i'm just gonna yet for the listener. You need to get into the turn in the river to make those decisions. you can't just waved. The white flag too early basically like i'm looking at the pods. Shaw needs seventeen percent plus equity continue. There's not a world where he doesn't have that you know that's that's the downside of villain using the quarter pot sizing is you know. They always we always have great odds to continue.

How do Income-Share Agreements Work?

How do Income-Share Agreements Work?

"So income share agreements. Let's break down. One of the first and most well known. Examples is lambeth school. Which is a programming school. I coating school. And you don't pay tuition until you're earning fifty thousand dollars a year the way it works. If you go to lambeth school dot com you can learn more you agree to pay seventeen percent of your post lamba school salary for twenty four months. But only after you're making fifty thousand dollars a year at least and they have a cap at thirty thousand dollars so basically you never pay more than thirty thousand dollars tuition and if you don't get hired and you never pay so isn't that pretty cool like they also have options to just pay tuition up front if you're able and that's what you prefer But to me the groundbreaking thing is this income share agreement because it's allowed a lot of people from poorer countries or from a disadvantaged background to really get a world class education and then a high paying job so there are a few other schools that are offering similar programs. I just did some brief research university of utah's doing it. Purdue university But in the world of entrepreneurship to focus our discussion here most iras are from startup. incubators one of the big ones that you may have heard of. It's called y combinator and their jail is first of all very selective so you can't just apply and get in like a lot of people who apply. Don't get in but if you are accepted there deal is they will invest one hundred and twenty five thousand dollars in return for seven percent of your company. Okay and that would be great if you qualify. First of all i said and also if you need more than one hundred thousand dollars in start-up capital so there is a world in which that is the case for lots of different businesses but here on site us'll school ninety nine percents of stories that feature. You don't need anywhere near that much money. Our whole point is to do this frugal to do this on a budget. To use the resources you have instead of just trying to find somebody to invest money so the reason i essays exist which as i said overall i think they're awesome but the reason they exist is because of expensive tuition or start up costs for some businesses. You were attending college. That was affordable for your budget. Then you wouldn't need the and so two. Is it for the side. Hustle model like total startup costs five hundred dollars. Let's say which we've had hundreds of stories that fit in that category then. An essay wouldn't really be worth for either party like you don't need somebody to own. X. percentage of your company in exchange for that five hundred dollars. You should just find a way to get the five hundred dollars or less on your own so that you don't have to give up any equity in your company.

Bitcoin Plunges Below $40,000 as China Widens Its Crypto Crackdown

"Tuesday the national internet finance association of china the china banking association and the payment and clearing association of china all issued a warning that consumers would get no protection from losses related to cryptocurrency investment transactions and financial and payment institutions are advised not to use virtual currency for most purposes. You'll see this being called a ban because it's essentially the same as if you're like. You really shouldn't do this because it's you know you're not gonna get any of our support and these are organizations. It's just short of a ban and is effectively going to end up being as if there was a band and that's important because about three quarters of bitcoin mining happens in china if your mind and all that bitcoin and suddenly you can't use it for anything inside your own country doesn't mean you can't make money off it at all but it makes it more difficult so this is the straw that broke the bitcoin. Camel's back wednesday. The price of bitcoin fell below thirty. Four thousand dollars for the first time in three months. Other currencies like theory does coin and more dropped as well and coin market cap estimates. The entire crypto market shrank by twenty percent between tuesday and wednesday. Now it has come back since then to be a more well. It was seventeen percent earlier. It's nineteen percent recording. This is why we don't like covering these things because it changes from minute to minute but it's a big drop and we normally wouldn't cover these kind of fluctuations accept that everybody was talking about this. I guess because it was so high and it had been starting to get more attention.

Why a 4th COVID-19 wave may look different than previous surges

"Possible the us could be on the cusp of another covid. Nineteen surge new. Corona virus infections are on the rise again all across the us over the past week. An average of about sixty three thousand americans a day have been diagnosed with covid nineteen. That's a seventeen percent increase from the week before. The biggest bikes are happening in michigan and new york possibly because of new strains like the one i found in the uk remember. Scientists say that one is more contagious and possibly more deadly too but they say the vaccines should work against it. The good news is even if this is the start of a fourth wave. It's likely it'll be a lot less deadly than the previous ones. And that's because seventy. Three percent of american seniors have now gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine a lot of people with underlying health conditions have also been vaccinated before the rest of the population. Of course younger people are not totally immune to this virus either as abc news reports. This is the first time since the pandemic was declared that most new hospitalizations are younger adults. But on the flip side there's been a ninety six percent drop in covid nineteen cases in nursing homes since the vaccine rollout started in december health officials. Say what we can take from. These new trends is vaccines work and everyone even young people should be signing up to get an appointment as soon as they

When Currencies Fail: Bitcoin Google Searches in Turkey Rise 400% as Lira Crashes

"Let's move to our main discussion and there are really two parts of the story that we're going to cover. The first is the devastating crash of the turkish lira. The second is the response of people in that country who found their money worth dramatically less than it was just a few days before first of all what happened between sunday evening and monday. The turkish lira fell as much as seventeen percent against the dollar ultimately landing around ten percent down. Turkish stocks also crashed the benchmark borsa. Istanbul one hundred stock index was down as much as nine point four percent which is the biggest sell-off since june. Two thousand thirteen. The nasdaq listed shares. Msci turkey efl seventeen point five percent pre market in the us. The cause of all this on early saturday morning. Turkish president aragon unexpectedly fired nasi ball. though central. Bank governor who had been appointed in november at the center of their disagreement was how to approach inflation. So let's step back and actually look at the scenario inherited oddball. He was the third central bank governor in two years in november the year that he came to power the annual inflation rate was fourteen point zero three percent. According to the turkish statistical institute by december it was up to fourteen point six percent now these are just official numbers and some argue that it's actually much higher on november twelfth twenty. Twenty johns hopkins. Economists hanky tweeted everyday. I accurately measure inflation in turkey today. Measure it at thirty five point six one percent this year as opposed to the official number of eleven point eight nine percent after that fourteen point six percent number came out in december. He said that it was actually twenty. Five point eight five percent per year even holding that aside if you just take the official number nearly fifteen percent inflation a year a staggering that means a having of your purchasing power every year and this has been going on for a long time sue from three hours capital tweeted last night fun fact. The reason turkish lira is t. r. l. is because they've already redenominated before due to massive hyperinflation. Let's add a little more color than about the previous year and a half. The central bank had been keeping interest rates low or at least below consumer inflation. And as we've discussed before on this show. Negative real rates mean investors are discouraged from holding that sovereign debt as well as from holding lira or lira-denominated assets. These have been the policies for eighteen months or more and by fall. The currency was at all time. Lows added to. This fire was the way the turkish central bank had been trying to prop up the lira. Selling more than one hundred billion dollars in us foreign reserves in order to keep the lira from completely cratering in the process this destroyed and depleted their foreign exchange reserves and lead them to actually owing more dollars to turkish banks than the central bank actually had determined. Opposition leaders ask for judicial probe into the official reserves as of november. The country looked to be heading to a full on balance of payments crisis. And on top of this there have been major questions around the independence of the central bank from president. Aragon aragon infrequently given the central bank direct monetary policy instructions had dismissed two governors in the previous sixteen months effectively. When we really take a step back. Turkey has been on the see-saw between currency crisis and inflation. On the one hand and massive austerity and growth slowing interest rate hikes. On the other a currency crisis twenty eighteen led to increase interest rates. And by summer of the next year aragona points quote a friend to cut rates by mid-november when oddball came in it was a swing back to the interest rate hikes austerity side of the pendulum. The first act of akbal as he came in was to immediately raise the central banks one week repo rate which is an interbank lending rate from ten point. Two five percent to fifteen percent now. Interestingly this had started to work things were looking more positive from currency perspective at least in early. Twenty twenty one. Daniel call tweeted this morning. The turkey central bank helped make lira one of the best currencies versus the us d- in twenty twenty one curbing money supply growth via rate hikes helping reduce inflation. The turkish lira was up three point zero seven percent from december thirty first twenty twenty two march nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. It had been down twenty percent the year before it also saw something like fourteen to twenty billion of foreign fund inflows into turkish assets over that same period which reversed years of the opposite direction. Basically the interest rate hikes austerity were performing well in the context of global currency markets. But ogbah clearly didn't believe inflation was getting under control to the degree that he wanted to. He raised rates again to seventeen percent and then finally on the thursday before his dismissal raise them much more than expected to full. Nineteen percent and so the pendulum is swinging back again from interest rate hikes and toward at least in the minds of investors runaway inflation. The newly appointed governor saheb cops. Yo glue said that beating. Inflation is the bank's main objective but also said that they're committed to lowering borrowing costs and bolstering growth. Money managers. basically think he's going to be forced to lower interest rates and accept currency depreciation and indeed the other place. This is showing up is in the cost of insuring. Turkey's government debt against default the price of which rose more than fifty percent over the weekend. What's more this move. And the switch. From ball to cops iaglu super reinforces the narrative that central banks lack independence from erdogan. As well casio glue is a party. Loyalist bloomberg's chief emerging markets. Economists said quote the hit to the central bank's credibility and independence can't be overstated to gone has battered the institutions with interventions that have repeatedly financial markets. Were willing to give ball a chance. His successor will find it hard to build that trust again. So let's talk now about the other dimension to this that you might have caught if you were on twitter. Google searches for the term bitcoin in turkey more than quadrupled over the weekend after akbal sacking wise. That happening while one part of it may be the idea that bitcoin provides in inflation hedge and just a different currency to get away from lira volatility. Which by the way all it using bitcoin to get away from volatility where they don't tell you when they're trying to critique bitcoin is that people can stomach more volatility if there's some possibility that those seventeen percents swings or also to the upside as well but the other part of it is that as i mentioned the new governor has said that they are committed to fighting inflation but doesn't want interest rates to be the tool because they messed with growth. What are there other tools then. Bing bing bing capital controls restricting the flows of capital out of lira and lira-denominated assets so one question might be alongside. Google searches is are we. Seeing an increase in exchange activity owner goes pack. A consultant at the bbc turk pro exchange said that there was a spike in volume and that it was four both usd t tether as an alternative to us dollars and bitcoin on btc turk the bitcoin turkish lira pair has the highest volume with the tether turkish lira pair being the second highest now. This situation is going to evolve a lot. And i think on the one hand you have to just heartbroken. For the turkish people who are stuck between the whims and machinations of politicians and global economic flows that they have no control over when it comes to how much this new set of crypto and digital assets can actually help them escape from those pains. I've said numerous times. One of them remarkable things about this moment isn't that bitcoin and digital assets are going to save everyone from the follies of local currency regimes. That's just not realistic yet. What's remarkable is that for the first time ever the entire span of human history. There is a convenient easy permission. 'less ramp from those regimes for those people. Who have the technical know how to do it. The number of people who have that know how is an ever expanding group and that means that bitcoin and digital assets at an x factor to every single currency crisis. From here on

Texas And Mississippi To Lift COVID-19 Mask Mandates And Business Capacity Limits

"Corona virus headlines this week have been about texas and mississippi where republican governors announced the end of mask mandates and said businesses could open at full capacity without any state imposed restrictions. Here's what the president said about that on wednesday. The last thing last thing we need is andrew fall thinking that in the meantime everything's fine. Take off your mask forget it. It still matters. Officials in the white house are worried about highly contagious. Variants spreading before states can vaccinate enough people in mississippi around twenty percent of the adult population has received one shot in texas. It's more like seventeen percent and those are pretty close to the percentage of people vaccinated nationally. Other places are relaxing public. Health measures to more changes are coming for corona virus restrictions across the states massachusetts is lifting restrictions on restaurants theaters can open at half capacity and live music and restaurants for most cities and towns except boston. Michigan is relaxing measures on restaurants and other indoor businesses and restaurants can open to fifty percent capacity. That is up from twenty-five percent capacity and san francisco is reopening museums gyms retail an indoor malls can reopen in san francisco at fifty percent capacity and gyms at ten but those places are relaxing measures incrementally texas is allowing everything to open all at once. Thankfully here in san antonio the vast majority of folks are commonsensical. Care about one another and are going to continue wearing masks in fact. That's the mayor of san antonio ron nuremberg. He told npr this week. That many businesses and school districts in his city won't abandon public health measures even though the state says they can so lifting up the measures that we have available to us to stop the spread to limit the transmission of the virus.

State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles

"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.

You may have with someone who is sleep talking. But two way communication the awake scientists would ask these sleeping subjects questions and they were able to respond without waking up. These results were published last week in the journal. Current biology and already aired in a segment on pbs. And one thing giving this particular paper a lot of credence is that it's actually the work of four different teams from four different countries who initially conducted independent studies before finding out about each other and joining forces in total. They brought together thirty six volunteers across fifty seven experiments and trained people with varying amounts of success on lucid dreaming. That is dreaming where you're aware of dreaming. That's cool thing that some people train themselves to do either for fun or with various conditions. Some of the volunteers already had experience with lucid dreaming. But not all of them quoting vice. The researchers verified that participants had entered rim sleep by placing electrodes next to their eyes on their scalps and on their chins by measuring activities such as brainwaves eyeball movements. Sleep experts can determine if a person has entered this deep sleep states. Some of the participants were then asked to confirm that they were in a dream with a pre-arranged ocular response in which they moved. There is in a specific left. Right pattern these icicles. Along with facial contortions were used as a means of communication during the sleep sessions for instance the researchers asked a nineteen year old american participant to subtract six from eight while he was in a lucid dream and he correctly signaled the answer to with two movements from left to right and asked again. He repeated the correct answer. Roughly eighteen percent of the trials resulted in this level of clear and accurate communication from the dreamer. Seventeen percent produced indecipherable answers. Three percent ended with incorrect responses and sixty percent did not provoke a response at all and quotes and from gizmodo quote win. The volunteers were asked about their experiences. Some reported being able to remember the pre dream instructions. They had received an attempted to carry them out. Some also reported hearing the questions they got while in the dream although not always in the same ways and some reported hearing words that clearly felt like they were coming from outside their current reality while others said it felt like they were hearing them through radio or other form of communication within the dream but there are still times when people couldn't clearly recall what had happened. Were win the questions. They said they received in the dream. Didn't match the questions. They had actually gotten and quotes is also worth noting. It was a pretty small sample size. But one of the study's authors can polar points out that the fact that those results came from multiple different methods employed by multiple teams around the world indicates. It's not an isolated phenomenon calling this interactive dreaming polar says they're working on expanding in a few ways they want to be able to run the experiments in people's homes where subjects would be more comfortable and maybe using existing smartphone app that teaches people how to lucid dream. All the main aim of the research is simply understanding the mysteries of dreaming a bit more. They're also some potential practical applications. Blake helping people with breaking habits problem solving having therapeutic benefits if you want to dive deeper put a link to the pbs segment which touches on a few other dreams studies as well in the show notes.

"This was an isolated incident. But this has been happening now, I can look up any kind of article and people out there. You're gonna yell out fake news or I don't trust. That news source are that's exaggerated. Are you gonna make up a conspiracy theory? So now, you know, no one's gonna be able to get through with the if you believe otherwise, I'm just putting out there for people who do understanding use commonsense. Since twenty seventeen when when Trump has been elected, president hate crimes have gone up. Because it's always somebody new who has his idea that I'm gonna do this. And it's gonna start a race war. It's going to start. They had to do. Now, you can let their stories we just had a. A coastguard guy. He was he was like storing ammunitions and hope of starting some race war. And and and and cleansing America bringing up a new, you know, the new white society. There was a guy. Who in New York? Stabbed the do with a source that all black male with a sword. And that he's now now want even the real start. That was practiced to start a race war, right? Know, we see constantly people in grocery stores being accosted for speaking Spanish. You can you know, I'm just looking I'm just picking this up. Anyway, this Francisco Chronicle says FBI says hate crimes US California's surge in first firstly of Trump's presidency. U S hate crimes increased by seventeen percent last year. Federal officials have said this is taken. This this article is taken from November fourteenth twenty eighteen but I mean, you've seen the incidence more and more and more. It's. It is not a coincidence that this has happened since this man is coming office, right? And. Here's what really bugs me about this. No. Even though they're being case after case of white nationalist. Committing crimes murdering people attempting to murder people. Trump refuses to go in and not even criticize much much less acknowledging he'll criticize in the most Broadway possible. This was terrible is a horrible thing. But he'll never say is a horrible thing. Because of these people who use my name in the name of white nationalist right to commit murder attempted murder in this is no exception right here. I'm looking at this market watch Trump plays down threat of white nationalism after New Zealand attack in in what really bugs me about this. Is that going here and read this in? Okay. I, you know, like, for example, always say he'll try to do with the smallest most broad generic way as he can. Because he don't want to set up. You know, he don't want to set off and upset the people that are his supporters. That's how sick this man is right. I mean, they're the they're the the one true diehards at support him. No matter what. Yeah. He doesn't wanna lose them. Yeah. He's a racist by sociation and that emboss O'Shea shit. What I mean by that? He's every any any bad label. You can think of he's adopted it because he doesn't care about anybody. But himself, he's a racist, sexist, homophobic. He's a he's a sociopath. He's an elitist. He's a liar is a piece of shit and the man in this listen to this. This is from the article, right? He's trying to play it down any way that he doesn't have to set people that he because he loves the tension man, even a racist. He loves the adoration from people that is a mental illness. Yeah, man is sick. And he's our president. Here's what he said about this. I think it's a small group of people that have very very serious problems. I guess Trump's if you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that's the case. I don't know enough about it yet. But certainly a terrible thing profound. Let a Mexican fart the wrong way. And he'll bring a case up that wall. And he'll bring in hill, and he'll gladly tell you how Brown people are coming over here to rape and murder and pillage, but these white nationalist anytime, they do something they do something a lot.

We gotta find these items like mother Sherman powerful there. And it's not a lack of surging. I've talked about this guy talks about others part about it is not for lack of searching necessarily. But there are definitely certain times in a game where the perception of the search pan hurt us more led for men or there's just a little bit more permissibility or meant to be out and about us. And so I think as much as we can start to shift that larger perception of our game where it's like more acceptable to be aggressive to be going out there just one balls to the wall, or, you know, she's body part that is generally -clusive to the wall.

So, you know, putting in hopefully Kaiser changing so do so I want to make sure that. I get this straight when we're talking about. Are you saying that you feel like that it's more income in that the women players should be more ambitious in terms of getting out there and searching, or do you feel like that the way the show is hiding the idols should change? Or is it some combination of the two? I don't I don't think I've saying you'd be marvelous. I think a lot of women that go there are it's dry. Maybe the wrong word, but maybe don't be as prehensile about. Oh, what will people say? If I go out there. Yeah. I think that's part of it. I think the show needs to change anything about where they're being hidden because because that's really interesting because I feel like that most of the debate about this has centered about around how the show is hiding the idols in terms of that women have rolls around the camp that are more sort of like. Social and taking care of the food, and that sort of limits their ability to get out there and search whereas some of the men who have jobs like, oh, I'm going to go out and look for the fire would then have more freedom to go. Find those idols. Yes. I actually I think it's even deeper than I think it needs to be that. It's more permissible on foundational level or.

Let's be honest. China's economy has shifted. They're not looking for big land movers anymore. We're not looking for big infrastructure diggers. You know, that sort of thing it shifted.

That was so bad. It was the worst December since nineteen thirty one. I don't know why I'm laughing because they're going to laugh or cry. Not only were the market's down. They were volatile as well. The s&p five hundred was up or down more than one percent nine times in December alone massive swings in the market now just to put that into perspective. It was upper down one percent nine times in December in all of two thousand seventeen that only did that eight times we did more in December than we did an all of two thousand seventeen now let me just put this into a little bit broader context for you since one thousand nine hundred twenty six there have been three hundred seventy quarterly returns in other words, three month intervals right there. So the first three months of the year followed by the second three months of the year. And so on there were three hundred seventy of them since nineteen twenty six our last three month. Interval the Q four the fourth quarter of two thousand eighteen was the fourteenth worst with the stock market's down seventeen. Percent in the fourth quarter for yearly end up loss of six percent. And is it bothering you is this negative attitude. This negative result really upsetting you. Well. According to a survey that was just done at the end of the year by the National Endowment for financial education. They found that sixty percent of those surveyed say, yes, the volatility bothers them the other forty percent say it doesn't because we understand the volatility is part of the financial markets and their right? Those forty percent, unfortunately, the majority say, yeah, I'm really bothered. Well, here's why I don't want you to be bothered. Yes. The stock market's did poorly, and we were down six percent in two thousand eighteen but you know, what if you take a look at the worst performing quarters, and we were down seventeen percent in the last three months. This is why people are upset. It's not just that the s&p was down six percent of the year. But rather it was down seventeen percent in just the last ninety days raising the question, right? What's going to happen in the next ninety days? What's going to happen next week? Well, let's take a look at the historical data. If we take a look at the performance of the stock market since one thousand nine hundred twenty six on a quarterly basis. If you look at the worst performing quarters. They were down in average at twenty three percent. We were down seventeen this last one. So not as bad as the worst of them, but still pretty darn bad. What happened a year later? What happened three years later? What happened five years later, according to the historic data when we have gone through a quarterly performance as bad as the one. We just went through. On average since nineteen twenty six following really bad quarters and these ranged anywhere from seventeen percent losses to thirty eight percent losses. A year later on average. The stock market was up twenty six percent. Years later. The stock market was up on average thirty eight percent. And five years later,.
