Is the COVID Vaccine Helping or Hurting the Virus?
"Why should we agree to a vaccine mandate at all. Well we shouldn't. And i mean we need to have a real conversation of whether or not vaccine is actually contributing to the spread of the virus and just look at the data the more vaccinated. We become more all of a sudden people. Become infected is the vaccine slowing the spread or is it earning the spread. That's a legitimate question. Let's stop it because people are gonna go crazy. Media matters pay attention little. What's his name boo typing. If you talk to real virologists not politicians tell you. Every virus has a life cycle. It's like a bell curve and they need to burn out and what your saying could in fact be the scenario that these experimental vaccines are delaying the viruses capacity to burn out in the population. That's what you're talking about correct. That's right yeah. Just as a objective analysis which country is doing better sweden or israel which one has embarked on a mass inoculation strategy. Israel did as much of vaccines and in seventy eighty percent of the population. They did a booster shots. They did lockdowns mass. Everything and their case per population is much higher than that of sweden. Back open for business. That's right yeah. And of course had the most mature response to the virus back in last year. They did a little bit of lockdowns last summer and a little bit last winter. I wish they wouldn't have lockdown off idea and they actually don't help at all epidemiologically but way way more mature response than israel. Much more prudent and so. Yeah that's the real question is are the vaccine helping or hurting. No one wants to say no one wants to talk about it. And the cdc has now changed. The definition of what a vaccine is no longer says that it will inoculate you against the potential transmission of you getting a virus. It will help you fight the virus. That's called the treatment

"seventy eighty percent" Discussed on NICE WORK! A Super Nice Club Podcast
"Definitely. We'll get into some stuff. I mean i definitely struggled with some anxiety issues. Mental health challenges my senior year and That really took away from my personal experience. A little bit just not being able to be present and just enjoy the experience but There was also some highs that came out of that to my. It was a very arduous journey and definitely wouldn't wish it upon anyone but the A very Kind of soul-searching thing i'd say and really caused me to reevaluate things and I don't just it really developed. I one thing that came out of that was me and my head coach. Got extremely close. After that 'cause he was. I had to let them know what was going on. Because i had lost like twenty pounds like going into going back to school and just it was really struggling. And it was obvious and he was just so supportive and especially just in the baseball sports world. There's a lot of like macho. Ism and stigma around mental health. So that was just very nice to be able to get that support from my head coach and teammates so it was a low but yeah. That's that's that's huge. That you that you bring that up just because you know mental health anxiety issues. Whatever the mental health is in sports man. It's it does seem to come up again and again that whenever a player admits to having a battle we're having had one It's tough for them. You get you get part of the the fan base just like oh you know you're getting paid eight million dollars a year buck up right but anywhere else any other career. If you say i've got. I'm going through some mental health issues. People are supportive like go. See the doctor. Let's get through this but in other words. You know all these men and women or just sort of expected to like you said macho through it right. There just doesn't seem to be as much empathy for athletes who are going through mental health issues and men. I would just imagine that just being an athlete and having to having to succeed the pressures of daily success and daily failures because even like the best players fail seventy eighty percent of the time right must just be grind. Have you do you pay extra close attention whenever you read these sports stories of the kevin. Love's and these other players that are that are coming public with their struggles. Yeah i definitely try to try to keep informed..

Using Big Data to Solve Economic and Social Problems
"Fake data tends to get a bad rap and it often deserves it from facebook's tools being used to abuse privacy to amazon knowing everything you buy two apps tracking all of your movements kids data minefield for consumers these days but in the hands of the right person big data can actually be a force for good or at least one hopes a force for good policy and raj. Chetty is trying to do just that. He's ahead of harvard based opportunity insights research institute. That's working solve america's inequality problem one data set at a time chetty has been tracking millions of people doesn't of years and tens of thousands of american neighborhoods in the process. He's learned that the country could be losing out on millions of inventors and that a move of just two miles might alter the trajectory of a third grader. But jetties research isn't just sitting in long excel. She's on dusty shells. It's helping drive. Bill gates spends his billions of dollars of philanthropy or how president elect joe biden crafts his pandemic economic recovery plant. But one thing he does best was all his piles of facts and figures is to make it easy for even the nandi to rock and there's an explosive term for that you do. Things apparently called chetty bombs. I'm not sure you love that name do like that. you mind. i guess. I guess they're unique insights where you can visually see something to do. Visualization of. What's happening. And i think some of the ones that i thought were much more effective was around covid. Which is where spending is happening or not happening so talk a little bit about what you're doing around cove it so in kobe. We're using data from a bunch of different private companies to track. What's happening to various key outcomes spending employment levels business activity and so forth in in a nutshell. What we basically find happened in the past six months is that high income folks started to spend a lot less like thirty percent less billions of dollars less per day primarily because of health concerns so lots of folks have the capacity to work remotely to self isolate and as a result they started to basically go outside their houses less and spent much less in person services. Local restaurants shops and so forth. Those businesses particularly small businesses then lost an enormous amount of revenue and in particular business located in affluent areas to think about for example the upper east side of manhattan or the highest income places in san francisco. They lost something like seventy or eighty percent of their revenues so just a massive impact in contrast in some of the less affluent places. Like if you think about the bronx or parts of queens you see more like twenty or thirty percent declines in revenue so much less than what you're seeing and appetizers and so then you got all these businesses that have lost a ton of money so what you can do with these data has asked. Okay how do they balance their books. Like what are you gonna do when you have much less money. Well naturally you see these businesses start to lay off lots of their workers and in particular. They lay off their low wage workers. If you look at some of these crops you can see very clearly this pattern where for low income workers people making less than say twenty or thirty thousand dollars a year. Somebody who works in a sandwich shop in downtown area of san francisco for example exactly seventy eighty percent of those workers have lost their jobs whereas that same worker if they weren't even at the same chain so you're working at a report layers something like that and you happen to be working at a branch that was in a less affluent area. You were much less likely to lose your job. Just because spending happened to fall less in those areas perhaps because essential workers are still out in about behalf to be outside their house because of the nature of their jobs were as time can folks can typically self isolate and so what's ended up happening is basically because of this production spending by the rich. It's lower income people who born the incidence of chuck and losing their jobs and finding now is we've had essentially a v shaped recovery for high income. Folks were their employment levels are back to where they were pre covid where it's lower income folks. You're still twenty percent below six million jobs below where you were where they've gone the brunt of the economic distress which i think anecdotally people get which is interesting one of the things that someone was talking about the statistics around the trump voters that wealthier people did vote for trump and mike while they're doing okay more than you think and their income is the same so they're not upset about this issue particularly jibe. That's right karen. I think what's more though as you can see. It's not trust lower income folks in general but in very particular areas right so in the past in previous recessions but you tend to see is that it's lower income folks in less affluent cities who took the hardest head turns out in this recession. It's actually flipped so silicon valley. For example has some of the highest rates for low income. People serfs there exactly because it's the opposite of what you might have thought because of the mechanism you just talked about. So this is one example of i think what you can see in these data but importantly as you touched upon you can basically have folksy this for themselves by just plotting the data in a very simple. I'm just finishing on covid with the cares act. Does the stimulus. Bill have an impact. Then you have this data now that you're showing this. They still haven't passed one. Maybe that's a good thing because they didn't get to see this data yet and they were just sort of shooting in the dark. Essentially isn't going to be a wakeup call or are they going to change their behaviors of where the money is going to be seeing the stated. How does that translate. Well i mean. That's the aspiration so what we're hoping going forward and i've been talking with a bunch of folks and the president elect and folks the biden team. I think there's a lot of interest both among those folks and on the other side of the isles who have been speaking with in trying to understand how we can do better invite of having these sorts of data. Because you know of course. They're always political debates about what we should focus on. But i don't think anyone is in favor of just spending lots of money and ineffective ways so talk a little bit about that concept of understanding effect understanding results in action take in the context of the current crisis the important paycheck protection program about five hundred billion dollars of loans to small businesses to try to keep people on zero again in the context of kobe to try to keep the economy going to stop businesses from laying people off so the way that program was designed. Lots of businesses were eligible in particular businesses with fewer than five hundred employees. And as you said you know there was kind of a hope that maybe giving these firms this money is going to keep lots of workers on the payroll and will make the recession. Not as bad. So what we did is using data from payroll companies which are cutting paychecks for millions of workers. We basically compare trends and employment for firms that had fewer than five hundred employees and hence were eligible for the paycheck protection program versus firms. That more than five hundred employees and ends were not eligible. So you can make an analogy there to sort of a science experiment. You've got a treatment group. The firms that have fewer than five hundred employees that got this extra assistance and the ones that up more than five hundred employees service kind of a control group. They tell you what would have happened if you didn't get this ski enough and so what you end up. Seeing the data is you can follow employment levels week by week and you can see very precisely that after april third that when when this program went into effect employment did start to go up a little bit at the smaller firms relative to the larger firms by about two percentage points. But the problem is it's only a two percentage point impact of fortune for every cost five hundred billion dollars so it it cost about three hundred thousand dollars per job that we saved as a result. Some of these are low wage. Jobs jobs that are paying about forty thousand dollars a year typically. So you know. You're spending an enormous amount of money to save these jobs now. I think people started to figure out over time that lots of firms might be taking up this program who weren't gonna lay off any workers anyway and as a result it wasn't super cost effective but we figured that out only several months afterward and so the kind of vision. We add some of this big data. Work that we're doing. And this is why i think it can be a moral force for social good as in agean. You could see as you're gonna steering the economy to three weeks later while this is kind of working but maybe we need to target it at firms that lost a lot of revenue or redesign it a bit so that it's more effective or in specific geographies like this area doesn't need any money. This area does exactly what specific sectors right. there are certain sectors particularly hard. You can take a really data driven approach and in private companies. This would be second nature right. I try to sell this product. I figure out within a couple of months people are clicking on this. They're not buying us. I'm going to then tweak it. In some way and i think we could do that from a social perspective for for policy with in my view much larger stakes.
How Olympic Gymnast Laurie Hernandez Regained Her Strength After Emotional Abuse
"Lori. Take me back to the moment where you fell in love with gymnastics iranian before he started. I was at home and originally did ballet. When i was three. But i think if you can't tell really a kid who can like sit still really so three to do something as serious as ballet was a little tough but they told me that they would give me sugar cookies. If i paid attention so i stayed for two more years and then when i was five i was kinda coming home from practice or rehearsal and i saw two gymnasts on the tv. I thought they looked so cool. I didn't know what they were doing was possible. And i kinda just looked at. My mom knows i want to be just like them. Mom was like okay and she put me in. And i just i loved doing it. I didn't know what i was doing. But i loved doing it and there was a lot of energy that was happening and it was a good place to put it. We all watched you and cheered for you and we see the triumph and the glory. What is it. we don't see you see a of things 'cause Interesting to me is al people. Most people know me from the olympics but in being sixteen in doing that kind of five to six week event. I had so many years of doing other things. Most of those things was training but that was such a short time period a huge peak in my career in my life but it was such a short time here. It's sometimes i kinda forget that. That's like the main part of my life really but the behind the scenes of that. I'd say there were a lot of times. I wanted to quit. Which is very common in any sport just tired and at the time. I wasn't really sharing. What was happening in practice. I'm sure a lot of people have seen like the instagram posts. A lot. that's been happening in gymnastics community within the last couple of months. But they didn't know they just saw this little kid who had really high dreams and they wanted to make sure that i didn't give up too soon because it was hard and they were pushing kind of realize okay. This actually makes sense. I see why they're doing this. So there are a lot of those moments a lot of different moments. Also i think in my particular situation trying to gauge. What do i need to make. Sure i get there like even just mental is. How do i look at this because physically. I think i can do it. But up here is the real challenge. Your brain is the part but you know if you're you could be one hundred percent physically for all your routines and whatnot. But if your brain's not bear then it's not gonna work whereas let's say physically you're at seventy eighty percent but if your brain is strong enough it's gonna pull through and you can really get it done. That's not the old but so the mental really matters. And i think a lot of that was kind of a battle of. I'm not sure how to look at the next couple of years to make sure i can hang in there and be okay. I do want to ask you about what you did to get your head right mostly because i want to learn it and process it and then do it myself but you brought this up so i want to talk about it. Which is there's a reckoning. Going on in gymnastics and a lot of the emphasis and attention has been put on the way. That gymnasts were physically violated in some cases sexually violated pushed. Really hard the abuse you suffered was different though. It was emotional abuse. What did it look like for you even just bringing it up to someone was terrifying because a lot of especially now. Gen z is kind of looked at as snowflakes. They're not tough like they need to build thicker skin. These kids are just so sensitive. And i'm like oh man. Maybe i just am really sensitive and if you ever meet my parents. They are literally the sweetest human beings possible. So maybe i'm just a really sensitive kid. Maybe this just stinks a little more. Maybe it's me who needs to toughen up. I was very wrong. that wasn't the case at all. The hardest part. I think was knowing that that culture is so common in gymnastics that even i couldn't really identify as wrong until after the fact that adults were brought into because i was still minor and my mom can kinda overheard a phone call of me my friend talking and we had brought up situation that for us. We laughed about but for my mom was a huge red flag that she didn't know about
Scientists believe cannabis could help prevent, treat coronavirus
"Team of Canadian scientists believes it is found strong strains of cannabis that could prevent or treat corona virus infections. Wow, researchers from the University of Lethridge. Says a study shows at least thirteen cannabis plants are high in. That appeared to affect the pathways. That bug uses to access the body. Okay, now that you know this, will you partake in even more cannabis than you already do in an effort to fight off the corona virus well, I would welcome those scientists to make a recommendation. It's like it's like a wine menu. Hey try the BUBBA og. They say quote. We were totally stunned. At first then we were really happy. Which? Sense I certainly doing well. And I don't. I can't tell you that it is necessarily weed or cannabis, as I like to call it when I being professional bought. I do have a variety of different. Flavors strains of cannabis that I that I do use and maybe you know maybe my purple Kush is what is keeping me safe from corona virus. I think that's what your role with one more quote from the scientists quote, our work could have a huge influence. There aren't many drugs that have the potential of reducing infection by seventy eighty percent. Wow! He told the Calgary Herald so your nightly. Cannabis intake may actually be helping you fight off the virus
What Is the Microbiome and How Does It Affect Our Health?
"Today. We're going to explain a rather complex. And maybe it's unfamiliar term for many of you and that term is called the micro bio him and if you're a nutrition follower you more than likely have seen this term around whether it's blog articles you've read or podcast. Listen to but we want to take some time this morning to explain and explore and hopefully answer some questions around this concept of what exactly the microbiome is and how does it affect our health. If you'd like more information about the microbiome after this show you can go to our website which is weight and wellness dot com and read a blog article that I just wrote and we posted. I believe it was just last week on our website so the blog is titled. What is the microbiome? What does it do? And how does it keep us healthy? I know I've talked to a few clients of mine who have already read that and think it's just a really great resource so kudos on on putting that together and making it easier for our for followers in our listeners. To to kind of dive into this topic well thank. You shall be appreciate that. It took many hours actually more than I expected to get that blog together but it came together actually fairly nicely so in between that researching and the writing and trying to wrap my hat around this concept of the microbiome you know I I think I have a decent handle on what the microbiome is and just some of those impacts on our health but I also just want to preface this or throw this out there early in the show here that the study of our gut health in the microbiome. It's still a relatively new scientific field. Only the last fifteen to twenty years. We really had some firepower into the research behind this right. So there's things there's definitely a lot of things that we know but my guess is that there's a heck of a lot out there that we don't know exactly so we're going to hopefully break down some of those things that we do know for our listeners. This morning help translate that and give people some topics or some ideas on how we can make an impact on that microbiome right. Yeah so again. What is the microbiome And My name. I'll introduce myself now. I'm Leah Klein showed. I'm a registered and licensed Dietitian is see clients at our Mendota Heights location a few days a week. And you've heard her voice now but I have shelby Olsen who is in the studio with me as a co host. This morning shelby is a licensed nutritionist with a master's degree in applied clinical nutrition and she works with clients in our. Why's that a location? So we're kind of on the opposite side of the world for those of you who live in the twin cities Leah's than Mendota Heights. I'm in ways that we don't get to see each other very often but I thought it was really interesting. Li You and I both did our undergraduate degree in exercise science and then we went onto a master's program in clinical nutrition. And here we are getting to kind of nerd out over the microbial salute. So I hope that we can share some of our insights and some of OUR PASSION FOR HELPING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. How Micro Ma how? The microbiome affects their health. And what you can do to keep your microbiome working for you not against you. Good morning everyone. Of course I'm excited to be in the studio here. I believe that understanding the microbiome helps us to see what's going on with our health but as humans. We are mostly made up of microbes. All of you a Germaphobe out here stick with US may surprise you that we as humans are mostly made up of microbes. In fact we have over one hundred trillion microbes both on the inside and outside of our bodies. And if you're thinking Micros what is that? Those are the tiny living things that are actually too small to see with the naked eye. But there on your skin there in your mouth or in that sinus cavity they're even in your intestinal tract really everywhere on the inside and the outside of your body and we know as we learn more about this research. We have more microbes in our body than we have human cells because there are are approximately ten microbes for every human cell that we have in our body. That's just those numbers one hundred trillion ten ten times more microbes for every human. Sell those numbers. You almost can't comprehend that. And the majority of those microbes live in our digestive system especially in the large intestinal tract or the colon. So I'm sure you've heard some of the names of these microbes like bacteria fungi protozoa and even viruses but in most cases when people hear bacteria or fungi or virus they automatically associate that with bad health or disease right. We've been hearing a lot about the corona virus clearly not something that We associate with good health but we are learning that not all bacteria not all microbes are all are bad for our health So that's really where we want to set that foundation for our discussion today. Absolutely yeah. There's some that they're more. They're more neutral but some that even work for us like you said earlier shelby. They work for us not necessarily against us. They actually help. Keep the bad guys in check right. So when we say the word microbiome. That's the good the bad. The ugly is a collection of bacteria viruses fungus. All of the above Yep absolutely so now that we know what microbes are so shall we did a nice job. Introducing that topic and some of the names of those microbes. Let me tell you now. So here's more scientific nerdy term for microbiome. We know the microbiome is all the genetic material that makes up all of these microbes. So all of those bacteria the fungi the protozoa viruses. Then those guys again. They live on our body. They live inside our body. This is all the genetic material that make up these microbes. So these microbes that are in the microbiome. They help us do a lot of things. So number. One first and foremost they help us digest our food. They help us break it. Down absorb everything like that. I think people have have started to buy into that idea a little bit more about you. Know breaking down our food or affecting our digestive system but tell us a little bit more because there are some other ideas about the microbiome right right so another huge concept about the microbiome and what they do for us is that it regulates our immune system. We know and I talked to my clients about this all the time about. What is it? Seventy eighty percent of our immune system is in that lining of our digestive tract especially our intestinal track. So we need all those. We need that like you said the good the bad the ugly all of that really lends itself to building up our immune system and keeping some of those bad guys at bay. So what? I'm hearing you say Leah. Is that if you have tummy troubles. You may actually be more likely to get a colder afloat definitely idea for you listeners. Yeah I'm going to share a little bit about that in my story little later on this show so I have some personal history with that but the microbiome also you know a protects us against the bad guys and it helps us produce some of our nutrients some of our vitamin specifically B twelve so might even be twelve Thiamine Riboflavin which are a couple other of our B. Vitamins and even vitamin K right. So it's very interesting that actually they we don't always necessarily get all of these nutrients from the food itself but from some of these microbes right and as I was researching for the show. I was thinking to myself. Well are the microbes on my skin. The same ones that are in my gut rate because we actually have lots of different microbes on our skin as that protective layer. It's not just a physical barrier. We actually have the bacteria the fungi. You know. Some of these other microbes on our skin so the short answer is no the different parts of our body all have different and distinct kind of communities or I sometimes call them. Families of microbes skin has their group or their family of microbes. The Vagina has a different family The intestinal tract has a different family of microbes. Each type of microbe likes to stay with their group or their family Much like humans do right. Yeah I've been don't travel too far out of that group typically right. Yeah and another interesting fact. Is that the microbiome from person to person differs so your microbiome. Shelby is not the same as mine. Ryan it's not the same as your husband's even the same my husband so lots of differentiation and individuality between people
Troubled Water: What's Wrong with What We Drink
"Be Wary of water. Joining joining us now is set to seek all. He has authored activist. Member of the Council of Foreign Relations guest curators interactive brokers studios. He is the author of a new book. DOC troubled water. What's wrong with what we drink? I want to talk to you about the book at about the sort of larger concept here and and you said right before we went on air. I'm not here to scare anybody at yet what I was reading through your materials. It's a little bit unnerving to think that a lot of the water that people drink it's not just flint Michigan it's contaminated that's correct almost everywhere in America there are contaminants in our drinking water and this is probably the largest unspoken of public health threat or menace in the United States. There's a large number of different chemicals that get into our systems through our drinking water that are having unknown effects on our bodies on our endocrine systems as technical phrase that affects growth attention spans sexual interest for Tilleke as well as the possibility of cancer. Some of those things are already proven scientifically and some are now in the process of being investigated but I would argue that being investigated aggressively enough by the EPA an organization that whether it's a democratic or Republican president or Congress is unfortunately inactive who've were not active enough in pursuing what we need to have pursued to get the best health profile for all Americans all right so we don't have the best water what needs to change within the US to improve the quality of our water. Well first of all there aren't nearly there. Were about one hundred thousand chemicals that are in commerce in the United States. Maybe more and you would think that seventy eighty percent of them ninety percent of them would be under some type of investigational regulation by the EPA because some significant percentage of them get into our drinking water and some percentage of those have have a act on our health but of that hundred thousand chemicals that are in commerce. The United States. It sounds hard to believe this. But it's true. Only seventy seven zero are being regulated by the EPA for drinking water purposes and is shocking as that low number is even more shocking given how much chemicals used daily life in America even more shocking is the fact that the last S. time the EPA regulated any chemical whatsoever or any contaminant whatsoever was twenty three years ago they have been inactive for generation and longer and that is putting our health at risk. Is there any map of where we can and can't drink water. We'll tell me where you live and I'll let you know. Okay I'll give you my address after this Seriously I mean it's anyone tracking or tried to do this scientifically we'll actually. There's an organization called the environmental working group. We're on their website. You Can Punch in your zip code and and they can tell you under the federally filed documents but each utility what contaminants have been found in that ZIP codes water whether or not that's particular to your. We're particular TAP LISA. I can't say for sure but invite me over for lunch and I'll bring my test okay. Great all right so water filtration plants. I I thought that was the answer you would think so the problem the problem Paul is both on the wastewater side and on the water filtration. which the way they distribute the water order to our homes from on both sides using technologies that are about one hundred or more years old and although in the interim place have been rebuilt and they're pretty nice parking lots some beautiful reception areas? The truth is that the technology is being used never grew up along with the time that America became. We'll highly medical society where now one one of where seventy percent of all Americans twelve and overtake at least one pharmaceutical product today to people to people about twenty percent of Americans twelve and overtake take five or more prescription pills day and that all gets into our water stream on the inbound side. We still do. We did one hundred. Plus years ago to get rid of cholera and dysentery and typhoid Loyd. Fever we put a dot of chlorine or chlorine like product in it to to cleanse the water. But we don't do anything to remove from that water. These pharmaceutical pharmaceutical residues and other chemicals that have found their way into our water stream such that occupy one example of many that are in my book troubled water just one they scientists independent independent scientists with no axe to grind when ahead in the Great Lakes vast amount of water so be diluted like crazy with think she tested fish and all five of the Great Lakes and an all five live with a great lakes. She founded their brains and their organs and their muscle. She found residues of all kinds of psychiatric medicines like solo often SELECTA and fourteen other medications medications. Now if that's going there that water is then being sent back to our homes for us to drink and we are getting that dosages back in micro quantities and we're getting that magnified amounts also for eating the fish. I'm just trying I'm going through these scrap extrapolation getting increasingly concerned. I'm just wondering. How normal is this with other countries says well they're just sort of this problem globally or is the US particularly bad the more the more industrialized the more industrialized society is the more likely you are to have these problems now? There are some countries particularly Israel in Singapore that have very aggressive systems for purifying the water for reasons unrelated to Necessarily health reasons but it's really for water scarcity reasons. They have a reason to do this. And there are some parts the United States and I talk about in a Chapter Orange County California which has made a decision to basically cle- ignore the EPA guidelines. Go Way above it and they demonstrate the fact that using known technologies at very reasonable prices you can have the safest drinking water. Possibly the pure water you'd think that Zoloft PROZAC or something. Everybody happy a little bit happier. Exactly so seth so private versus public water utilities. Tell us that the compare and contrast there okay so this was a piece that I wrote the other day for the Wall Street Journal and I want to. I want to highlight something that is completely unknown. Fact in American life even when I talked to members of Congress and the senators they have no idea. There's the case you would think rationally speaking fifty states. Oh maybe every state should have at least one and what are you telling maybe two maybe three so maybe there should be three hundred four hundred maybe five hundred. What are you toys United States tops? Even though you could say that when you could cover several states we have in the United States over fifty thousand. What are utilities one county Los Angeles County has two hundred separate water utilities? These are very tiny. They have no ability to have the financial wherewithal in order to get the financing that they need to make sure that they can in higher up to date Up that they can buy up-to-date technologies hire the most advanced scientists and engineers and also fix their broken infrastructure. Is Crazy Risi just real quick here. Who has the interest of keeping all of these smaller utilities open for utilities? Okay so no one of the Public Lisa. Nobody in the public should the second thing that this is a good idea. And it isn't a good idea. That's why one of the main thrust of my book talking about Public Health. Water is to say four big takeaways from my book. One of which is we must consolidate our drinking water utilities and by the way I a second point that I made in the journal Article is that it turns out that about fifteen percent of American. Utilities are in private hands which is investor owned hands whether they're public companies or private companies remarkably digging deep into EPA A health data which a couple of professors have done. You learn something remarkable. which is that although you would think that public utilities have the public's interest in mind actually we there's a much higher incidence of contaminated water in public utilities? And the reason for that is because mayors want to keep the price low and therefore the don't get the Outcomes you want set Siegel. Thanks for joining fascinating.

Living Life By Your True Values
"This is John. John is my guest. Today is Dr John De Martini. He is a world renowned specialist in human behavior. A researcher author author and global educator on his most recent books has called the values factor the secret to creating inspired and fulfilling life. So let's talk about values. Shall we welcome John. Thank you for having me. Thank you appreciate the time here. So let's give people a little I read kind of the official stuff that you do. But let's give giving people a little bit of background. How'd you get here to to where you are today? Well I was a I started when I was seventeen. Actually I I had a dream to travel the world into teach. I set out to do that at age. Seventeen almost eighteen and I god I. It just didn't give up on it. And I just kept of emerging. It had a learning problem as a child. I was told that I went in first grade. Never be able to read never ever built right now relocate Mounting never go very far in life and high school dropout was living on the streets from years and But then I met this amazing teacher named Paul Bragg when I was seventeen that made me after During his talk for the first time in my life I thought maybe I could to overcome learning problems. Someday I could read become intelligent and I'll tell you what that was the most inspiring night and the turning point of my life and I never gave upon. I had to. I learn how to pronounce words and spell and practice speech things. I had a speech problem and I just I never gave up on it. I just and this is is the thing I just love doing much so at seventeen you were still not reading or even speaking well. I didn't read my first book till I was eighteen was it was it ultimately neurological solar psychological. or well I had when I was very young I had a speech impediment so I had to go to Speech pathologist very young. And then I when I got into first grade I had what they defined. Now's dyslexia. I I wasn't able to put it all together together. The only way I've been through school by asking smart kids questions and and but but you know when you really really really really WanNa do something and there's no turning back on it you can turn your life around. That's what happened to me. Just I had such a desire to win and I never thought I'd ever be intelligent. I had a desire to be intelligent and man when I went out on the pursuit of that it was like a relentless pursuit that I I I had with. The help of my mother had read thirty words a day and pronounce them and spell them properly and put them in a sentence and say I could go to bed until at thirty new words a day when I was eighteen and my vocabulary groove and eventually took a ged in high school equivalency test and a college entrance exam. And and I went on and then I end up being a scholar so I I just never give up on IT I. I've read now over thirty thousand books and I just I love reading. I just love learning and you people might have heard me introduce you as a doctor John D. Martinez so you now have even achieved advanced degrees. Yeah did I did ten years. Here's a college in almost in. Yeah I just. I wanted to be a teacher philosopher heater. That's so high fulltime travel around the world today researching and teaching students all of the world today every country. So I've I've been quite Hundred and fifty four countries in this January one hundred fifty four and you reside you were telling me before we started recording Somewhat unique home I live on ship call. The world went on their most time. I'm traveling like my residential last eighteen years on a condominium private condominium ship that travels all over the world I often on his I travel placed. That's right so mentioned the name of one of your core works is called the values factor. I wonder if you could define that. Term values factor. Yeah well every individual regardless of gender or age or culture lives moment by moment by a set of priorities a a set of values themes that are most important to least important in your life an every in this hierarchy a set of values that they hold things that the most importantly sports so this set of values is unique to them and it determines how they perceive what they decide and how they act the the perception decisions Actions are dependent on these values and whatever's highest on their value they spontaneously inspired intrinsically to pursue and this this is where they'll excel and fulfill and expand whatever's low in their values lower in the party's they'll require extrinsic motivation to get them to do it so they'll need lead punishment if they don't do it rewarded. They do kind of things in order to get them to do it. And this is not where they excel. This is where they kind of held back and finding out what's really truly truly truly most important people's lives and structuring their life through prioritize action a delegation to pursue that it's extraordinary it capacity to build momentum and go on to greater achievement as an entrepreneur or is anybody in any field early. I'm fascinated by that. And that's what the values factor is How do we get people to live concurrently in line with what they value most so they can be inspired so let me make sure? I'm I'm hearing this right. You're suggesting that people have these values even if they haven't it really associated words or names with them you're saying that they make decisions based on them and part of the job is to figure out what they are. Well if you ask somebody what their values are they'll tell you social cliches and ideologies and I'd idealisms that are injected in inculcated from individuals individuals like mothers fathers preachers teachers conventions traditions mores of the society that their subordinates and conforming to but I'm not interested in that I'm interested in what their life demonstrates I look at. I have thirteen value determined to help look objectively what their value determined. Germans are so how do they feel their space because things are really important to me fill their space with how they spend their time. They find time time spent time on things that are truly valuable. What is it the energizes when they're doing something on their values? The energy goes up there not to damage goes down. Wears their money. Being spent look carefully at how they spend their money tells you what the priorities are where they most organized and ordered where they most disciplined disciplined spontaneously. What is that they think about visualizing affirm inside internally dialogue with themselves about how they want their life that shows evidence coming true not fantasies but what are they converse with other people about most about what they wanNA keep bringing the conversation to what inspires brings a tear of inspiration to there is what exactly is it? The consistent persistent goals that they've been pursuing that are actually coming true not the ones fantasies that are self-defeating and what is the thing that they love studying about reading about learning about in listening to I look at those value determines to get a clear understanding what their life is truly demonstrating not their fantasies about what they hope it will be. However would you suggest also that there are a lot of people that fifty sixty seventy eighty percent of their lives? They're living outside of those things that you just described exactly. Most people people are comparing themselves to others putting on others on their pedestal. Minimize themselves into the pit living vicariously through other people paying high nine dollars for other people's brands instead of building brand around themselves and they are basically doing one. Emerson warned not to do n being imitating people which is sort of a death breath sentenced to their their self worth their empowerment and key. The key is to giving themselves permission to not subordinate to the world on the outside but to let the voice navision vision on the inside direct their destiny and take command of their life as as Ernest Becker says instead of conforming to the collective heroes you WANNA BE A. They'd be the individual hero within and so in the process of doing it. Most people don't give themselves permission to do that. They they live in the shadows of others instead of on the shoulders of giants.

Su and I'm tell- and today we are going to talk about the easiest way way to make your wordpress blog. Seo Friendly's of wordpress. I believe it's what thirty three thirty four percent powers the web. Is that correct at something ridiculous like that. In other words I bet you I bet you for this podcast. Maybe seventy eighty percent of the people here are running on a wordpress site or wordpress depress blah. You and I are yeah we both are. IBM Majority of Law Right. 'cause markers prefer wordpress. Is this from that. You can use. Then you don't have to be a developer you just click some plug ins. Yep so I guess I'll start off on this. WanNa make your wordpress blog. Seo Friendly there's to wordpress plug INS that you can use that. I I've always liked over the years and I think it's probably the same for Neil as well you could use one called joost. SEO THAT'S WHY O. A. S. T. Seo great plug in also another really. Good one is all in one. Seo You can expect some good changes some amazing changes that will be happening with that that plug in soon so make sure we kind of way the both of them I think the all in one the second one I mentioned has been around for a while longer neil yet and also also check out rank. Math it's really good for beginners. Funny Enough I was talking to Siad who arrogant I know. He does a lot of them. Were pressed up rank. Math is probably Econo- eventually at the pace they're going I think they will end up dominating the SEO plugin space. They've just done a really amazing job building the plug. Let's focus this episode so on Plug Ins because people can do it easily for wordpress right while other plug ins do you use to make your website. Seo Friendly Yeah so if you WANNA talk about speed. Then there's to plug INS that I've shared in the past. WBZ rocket is one of them and then short pixel is another one. And then for me I also use a plug in called structured structured content helps me do Faq page Schema and that allows me to boost my rankings really quickly literally sometimes in thirty minutes because allows me to have related questions right underneath my listing and that has helped me boost my rankings because it takes more space more people. Click it and again google's Google's using user metrics to determine rankings does click full have a wordpress plugin or click full does have spoken but we have an updated it for a while because we the what's interesting is to your point earlier when we look at our number of users percentage wise. It's about twenty percent of people that are on wordpress so nonetheless click full has is a free version or free trial in wordpress. You'll write content Samir countable naturally. Do well some of it won't and that's you know Konta mark in many cases a hit or miss game name but by adjusting your title Tags Meta description you can get more clicks which then helps boost your rankings as well that goes back to use your signals and you can use click flows. wordpress plugin to help you with that as well. What other plug INS DIS air? I find myself. This is more like an affiliate plug in but if you're going to do any type of affiliate stuff at all you do need to make sure so I I use a tool called pretty links and pretty links allows me to make. Let's say I have a really ugly affiliate url so it might be like. I duNNO SOFTWARE DOT COM. And then it's just like twenty six characters after after dots and what I can basically do is say. Hey I want to go to that your L. But I want to make it a very simple. You are alex single dot com slash pro that actually drives to my subscription for the leveling up podcast. So that's much easier to remember that simpler on the ice and basically what I can do. I can track a lot of these separate links that I'm making an also I can make sure from an SEO perspective maybe. I don't WANNA pass link juice to those pages right. I can also switch those pages up or switched links up whenever I want so it just makes things things a lot more flexible. So it's good for affiliates and it's also good for making sure that you could manager links at scale and making sure you're not just linking to a bunch of really nasty websites dot might actually hurt you another plug in that. I use is polly Lang. So polly Lang allows you to quickly expand your press blog anti multiple regions. Does everything being eaten yet to Manley. Translate your content but the reason why blogs run so fast Matt like six or seven million visits a month on my blog now but a lot of it comes from international national. 'cause they translate my content and polly Lang has helped a lot with that. So check that out and then I also use a cell insecure content fixer sir so everyone wants her content to be. HTTPS checkout that plug in as well that helps. Yeah the final thing say from my side is this is more related to the content marketing side. But if you have any writers outside that are helping you create content. I like having some sort of checklist for people to follow. So I think there's a plug in called. WBZ blogging checklists. And then basically when people are writing for you. There's GonNa be checklist on the bottle is this. I'm just GONNA throw some examples out there like maybe chocolates as each proce needs to be like twenty thousand words which is crazy. Don't use that as an example or you need to have a you know you need to have an image in the blog post you did have a basic there following your guidelines so everything that that is coming out of is going. It'd be much easier for your editor to manage. And then from there. You should be able to grow your traffic more consistently because you're following a process if not process broken. Probably go back and fix it. You WanNa make things very simple and stupid for people
What Are The Best Industry Stocks To Trade In 2020
"In this episode ongoing to cover. What are the best industries and stocks to trade in twenty twenty? And how you you can find your best market niche or I'd had you find the strategy to trade the stocks that will end up allowing you to profit the most or is it. That's what we go into in this episode. So essentially you know first of all just to break down so you understand what I'm referring to. There's there's a enormous amount of stocks out there right. There's over three thousand and that's just on the United States United States exchanges are so if you're trading being outside of the country there's even more right but a lot of times you know there's earn filters in criteria that we discussed any stock of you should only trade share chair stops with share the shares of at least a hundred thousand day In different criterias that we try to set forth in order to limit which stocks trade right in order to get the best chance of success. But even after that you're still going to be left with a handful of different stocks and it's important for you to start also as you're developing yourself as a trader to hone in and understand some of the semantics and some of the different verticals that are involved and I'm going to be going over that in this episode so by Vertical Industries Industries like insurance real estate financial services technology gas and oil mining. You know these are all different types of industries and all of them. Have you know upset now and so what usually happens. Is that if you're able to stay in tune with the overall industry that you're trading as well sometimes times you can help us to advantage and improve your odds of success. Okay because that's what this is all about this. Stop tweeting game. It was all about just improving your odds of success and increasing the probability upon which you can probably benefit and profit from a stock trade great. Okay because like I said before you'll never be able to win one hundred percent of your trades but the game is have a high seventy eighty percent ratio. ACO where winning and winning and profit right unfortunately even have some set of losses. But if you can just cut those short and minimize those trades as much as possible. You can still very easily be a profitable trader so i WanNa talk about the three best industries in twenty twenty and why. I feel that they're the most interesting to look. At all. Right and started off the first one is the biotech market or biotech or Pharma Mullahs Pharmaceuticals is such an industry interesting. Stop Trading Opportunity because of the way that that industry works and we we have specific hardcore videos back penny stock but generally speaking for biotech stocks. The reason they're so interesting is because they require her. FDA The usually companies that are researching some type of disease or some type of you know human issue and or pet issue or just issue right medical issue you work on researching and developing a certain cure for that. So usually that involves creating some sort of draw or pill for that Solution Lucia and in the United States at least that requires a very lengthy process with the FDA. I believe the Drug Administration. Which is the government agency that controls those types of products right? They have to approve it. So that way insurance that companies are not just selling whatever toxins and poisons or things that aren't tested to the human and pet population so biotech is crazy because those are usually stops offset if you were to look at the year probably more than fifty percent of the crazy runners. Hundred two hundred. Three hundred percent games in one day in stock market happened happened because of biotech stocks. And the whole reason is because FDA approval right so as scientists are developing these drugs. What's happening opening is out? They're going to have to submit their work and their research to the governmental agency the FDA and what happens is I believe around trial to around around three three There's a certain step. Where if they pass it essentially means that they're able to now finally take their product to be commercially viable and essentially it's the major step that wants the FDA approves it they're now able to go forward with all the chemical or indeed they've spent years and millions of dollars trying to develop so during those times you know if you look at the stock ticker symbol am or an? That's one that the students very recently profited off of By holding it from a while ago because that stock was they developed a cancer the drug and the FDA approved it so now they're able to start going to believe that there's another route. I think it's trial to around three. But in general you know that's a the various specific semantic related to that industry. And you might be. If you're new to this believe me it might sound intimidating. Like Waldo Solman Industries. How can come up with each one and I promise you? There's not that many right. That's why I'm telling you the three best ones for this year. Are the ones like the Pharma Biotech. I attack one. That's always a good niche. Always something that you should try to understand. Get into okay then after that what you have is you. I would say. Probably the second best industry to get into is rates or real estate investment trusts okay reits. are amazing dividend stop plays because basically what a retail is just a fancy real estate company. So it's basically weekly group of people who put together a company and took it public in order to raise financing from the entire stock market and in return turn. The government allows them to do that. But they're required to return and give as a dividend to all shareholders ninety percent of total taxable income so basically reads ends up reits are unsuccessfully and being very great dividend. Stop or and and so. That's why I place that as a great hold because you know the interesting thing of our real estate is that it's always kind of lagging indicator meaning God forbid have been the stock market crashes tomorrow real estate usually follow six months later after a recession because it takes a while for the trickle down effect. Let's our recession or a depression to hit the real estate market so reits even though they're technically included in the stock market the actual profits and losses. Also of that real estate will not be hit until a few months down the line so as a personal thing again. This is not investment advice at all this. This is just purely educational but at least from what I knew the hedge myself as I utilize these reeds as a great dividend stock burner and then finally the third her one April twenty twenty is put to in here because they kind of fit in the same general area and the little grey is blockchain and cannabis kind of. It's okay. Those are two really hot stocks or stock industries that people have and are paying a lot of attention to that. I think are worth looking at. Because it's going to be enough volatility. Where if you follow the different rules that we teach and you traded properly that you'll be able all to profit off of that volatility you'll be able to get and lock in those profits? Okay right now. I'm the recording. At the end of Twenty nineteen beginning of twenty twenty years. I would say catechism blockchain are pretty decent. You know average low for what they're usually so what I've been doing. His hedging myself in certain cashflow ready to look in adding more of those to my watch. List more blockchain companies and candidates companies to keep an eye on them for any and he's sort of pop because they're very volatile right now in the market has a lot of attention and press on that so they change.

Tech Lead Engineer: Herding Cats & Drinks
"We often talk about our growth path as engineers. One of those pass could be attack need engineer in today's episode. We're joined by I Tony Edwards to help talk with us about the role and responsibilities of a tech lead engineer. Tony can even brief introduction of who you are what you do and in what your favorite happy hour beverages sure I'm Tony. I'm a Sophomore Inter net flicks. I spend about twenty percent of my time coding favorites vagrancy my favorite happy hour beverage is a Manhattan Bliss. You're eighty percent of your time. Doing I help run. Projects and attend meetings readings all right okay interesting. We will definitely be getting into more on that before we do. Let's give introduction of today's panelists jam. You're started off Jamyang senior software engineer Netflix Stacy London senior front and Engineer Atlassian and also a feature lead for the last year plus on a project which isn't discussed later. I'm definitely curious on that High Mars Julian. I'm a front end software engineer at AIRBNB so a little different than nomad had lost and yet. I'm not a netflix anymore. So I'm a little bit sad yeah a little bit sad and I'm Ryan Burgess. I may suffer engineering manager at Net applets in each episode of the Front Unhappy Our podcast. We loved choose a keyword. If it's mentioned it all in the episode we will all take a drink. What do we decide today's keyword. It is projects so we say the word project projects new all take a drink her. Let's jump in. How would you describe what attack lead role engineer love listening listening like that out of attending meetings the little writing code some architect? Ing squishy socks thing softens architect teens not necessarily really soft yeah. It's not but ultimately gotta lean on your fellow engineers but it's important that you set so the broad strokes folks so a lot more like planning and off front work but then letting other engineers run with something yeah you gotTa Transfer People for sure all right anything else that odds that definition. I think it's an interesting I did ask for definition in the first place because I think every company will execute it very very differently and so it's interesting to hear obviously everyone's perspective here. I think we all have a slightly different definition in mind where the like coating to sort of management management ratios might be very very different depending on where you work. I think that's a fair point is they're completely different. Depending on the company say a lead engineer sewing that is honest honest with themselves about the amount of coding they do. Tony said Yeah. I feel like your son no matter what as a tech lead you're likely coating less. I think in general is engineers in years. We overestimate how much coding we do like Oh. You're you're seeing yourself engineering. It's cutting your your pilots seventy eighty percent of the time and it's probably more like sixty percent of the time we we we got a lot of meetings yeah. I I do think as you become more senior and more complexity of your role that grows hashing that's really funny as your coating actually goes down. That's definitely the way I've seen it in in my house yeah and I like put enough. I've had a conversation with our director about this much. Hey you know I it turns out. I'm starting most of my time. I'm doing network which is like writing. Docs meetings and organizing people in wrangling different projects and like. I don't feel like I'm doing my job. He's like that. Is Your job like your job to get stuff done. No matter what it takes sometimes coating more often than not it's not coating and that's kind of what lead engineers do by the way for the word projects as Mars for wholeness countable thin sharp. I think so I mentioned Fisher lead with the introductions and that's a role. I guess I really haven't heard of that particular. Taylor role until I got to a LASSEN and it's not official like role as in like senior engineer and like a future leader or anything like it's an addendum addendum. It's like a thing that you do as senior or you actually be any level and do that particular role but it's like somebody that let's say you take a team. That's pretty big and you break them up into smaller. smaller teams to work on a particular feature so like maybe on on screen. There's like some small. thing like you're building. They are a card that does X. That's a feature you feature lead it and what that really means. You're trying to help the product manager and the designer figure out anything that needs to happen to get that done from like the technical side so they're gonNA define. Maybe what the product manager and the designer according to define like you know what is and what it should look like and you're gonNA figure out the how and it doesn't mean that you wouldn't figure out how with let's say let's say you're on a future team and you have other senior engineers or junior all levels that you're working with. They're gonNA also figure out how to build this thing but you might run interference or maybe make make it so they don't have to go otas many meetings as you do about the technical implementation. see figure stuff out. Maybe a little bit more so that they can just like go and bills and and not have to be distracted too much. I think that's that's one way to think about it. A switch that up by future too is meaning is you could be the the lead on this feature and insulin so it could be on the lead on the next feature like is it something that's kind of interchangeable totally on insult for the last year more than like a future lead on a huge each screen Bisley redoing the entire poll request experience and that is a massive thing. That's like many many many many many features and actually actually to be honest it was it was too much that was me like almost never coating and doing a lot of like interference in all sorts of stuff and recently. We decided to break that up so now we we have many feature lead. You know people from different levels not all senior. I'm just taking over and owning a little piece of that page in working through plus really Likud. I didn't actually know to feature lead was but it sounds very similar to like attack lead lead engineer whatever it is it's very similar but is very narrow focus on on this particular feature year leading this ever yeah. It's really cool. I think another area that we miss maybe defining on how to describe attack lead. They feel like you're dealing a lot more with cross functional teams. I feel like as an engineer. You're always working really closely with your team. Maybe maybe you're working with the PM the designer but oftentimes there's other requirements come across cross functionally. There's like other engineering other disciplines that need to be brought brought in and you might be that person on goes in Shepherd's that and brings a technical perspective to it. He drew clarify cross functional for those who don't speak Silicon Valley. I don't know if it's is just silicon valley but I've not heard that too much. Okay that's fair. I mean cross functional to me means different functions of the business so that might actually be like like I mentioned PM design but it could also be even cross functional engineering teams. There's like A. Ui Team is a back end team Thurs networking team. There's like who knows what your project needs but you might actually be involved in a lot of those discussions where you're talking about okay how does the the back in interface with the Ui how does the backend interface with a database and those are the types of conversations where I feel like a tech lead might be involved. It's some of those meetings that you may not. I have to have all your engineers involved in like if you're a front end engineer you may not want your entire team there but you wanNA representative and to me that someone who is tackling exactly that can represent your team in those discussions that are broader function of the Costume Sean seeds that good jump. That's okay. I'll take it a home uh-huh affair all right well since it's okay. How could you make it better. I would simplify it right I would I would say it comes as different parts of the business that may not be. It's more than one product area so start with you. Did I think you compile all right now. That was project. Project Project Tares when you're a tech lead. You're the ambassador for engineers and you may be the first point of contact that he was ever had with with your team and so it's really important to make really good impression and if you're trying to get something done obviously that's why you're at a meeting with. This person is really important. He said good context high. Make make sure to explain why what you're doing is important because why should why should they help you. You gotTA show them. Show them the lights instead of make them light. It's very you can get people to do what you want by making them do what he wants or from top down. Maybe you can depend on organization do a top down thing but much better to get them to buy into there. You have to convince people that this is a great idea. That's like psychology right like that's that's like that's. I think what's been interesting choosing to about some of the definitions of this very outward facing and there's a lot of metal work involved but there it's been alluded to before here like internally also at least looking internally within your team. engineers are really really good resources for decision making so we've talked architect eating and making decisions based on unlike technologies to move forward with given the long term context in the projects cutoff line. I think there is external and internal responsibilities as house while put yeah. I guess what kind of skills like we kinda talk about some of the responsibilities but like what kind of skills goes into Vena technically you have. I've been around the block engineering wise. You have to see and you have to have failed. You have to have succeeded. You'll have to have done something of a biggest cope before I I like the failure part because you really do learn from all your past failures of like these are the types of questions. I need to ask front so that my team doesn't fail again. I if you don't if you haven't had that experience you might get engineers that are in that that team that you're on there like this is amazing technical challenge. I can't wait to go down a rabbit hole and work on this thing forever and you're like man. Maybe that there might be a different solution. That doesn't happen before I like the I've been around the block that is added to your point failure that is such a big part is like learning what not to do just as important as learning what you should

"Sarhan in for Gerry Kay in case you're just joining us we spent the first part of the show going over the major indices speaking about the fact that will I like to look at the forest not just the trees preferably most of the time just a farce I get asked a onto the web cast a few weeks ago a two semester class actually in a lot of the questions that come in from you the listeners and readers in the audience are related to you what time frame is best to navigate in other words I look at a daily charge a look at a weekly chart you're looking a monthly quarterly annually what you know what time frame is best the answer the short answer is you have to find one that works for you meaning there is no right or wrong answer everybody is different the key is to get to know yourself find your strengths find your weaknesses and then do what or what's working less of what's not meaning I'm very good at the big picture even in business some of the private businesses I invested nothing to finance I can put people in the right direction we should go to this that's again the Larry David side of me take on very good identifying certain things to improve the situation greatly now asked me to stand behind the register collect the cash give the customer receipt and and other than that let you I'm I'm lost that's why for me the intraday chart is something that I stay away from as much as humanly possible there's nothing wrong with them I have a private clients a coach and we go back and forth and have great conversations with the thrive on the internet day basis some that don't you can find the time frame that works for you but I know a lot of investors it is buying hold can I get lucky twenty thirty years America's higher surely sit through fifty sixty seventy eighty percent drawdowns get the claims by that much several times during that twenty or thirty year period or whatever time frame you have but they end up doing okay because the market at all time highs and upper bias problem is depending on your age and your risk appetite it's very tough to sit back and see your portfolio a cut in half one two twice or three times going forward I think what happened in two thousand or two thousand eight or any other bear market going back to the beginning of time short term traders do very good getting in in getting out not losing a lot of money but with a lack is he really capture the big games on the upside so when you're in a situation where you're trying to make big money you have to ride trains to account for the bulk of the move you can do that if you're staring at every take well sorry maybe you can do that by stirring every take I can't do that but we take again know thy self is one of the first things they teach people get to know yourself very very well in and find a time frame and then investment approach that works for you that complements your strengths and your weaknesses and if you're not very good at something whether it's short term more small things that's fine find someone else and pay them to do it that's what I do and also stepped away the other thing I do is I don't look at the market all day every day just because it doesn't work for me there's nothing wrong with looking for the market all day every day I just know myself I know doesn't work for me so what I do is I can put my orders in on the weekend when the markets are closed I know exactly where I'm going to enter what I'm gonna exit how much I'm going to risk if I'm wrong and I back away I literally have nothing to do well the markets open preferably I stay away I don't even want to know what's going on shore from board I'll check my phone and see where the market is no question Greg don't want to spend my time because it's not there's no R. O. Y. E. for me or it's not a good are a why to stare at the market and try to treat every other tech that approach has worked exceptionally well for me took me years to figure that out but it works very very well why because it allows me the ability to step back and see the forest and not get caught up in the trees sure I can get in I can get out because my stop saying same day stop out it's rare happens once or twice a year if that but it does happen that's okay stocks are in I'm comfortable taking that risk before I even enter and if the stock works and it keeps working great my goal is to capture the bulk of the move not pick a top or bottom that's where I'm comfortable and more point that's what works for me to the keys to find something that works for you and then apply it to all the other questions I'm frequently asked as well is when the self and when should I get out well integrated down there's three types of ways to sell three scenarios I mean unfold the first is you sell for a loss so we buy a stock at a hundred and go down to ninety one is you down you only want to get out some coins if not you keep losing losing losing in the loss of expression grow sorry the losses grow but the subsequent recovery exponentially grows so far I mean by that is if you down ten percent in eleven percent gain to get back to even you down twenty five percent you thirty three percent came to get back to you you buy something it a hundred it goes to fifty down fifty percent stocks now what fifty it has to go up a hundred percent just to get back to even how many times struck up a hundred percent especially after get cut in half that's why I always step back and do my best to keep my losses small as possible so the first in a when the cell is you pick a level where you're comfortable selling if the stock breaks down after you buy it now I like to use important areas or inflection point on the chart weekly Lowe's an upward trend line moving averages prior chart Hines depends on the base depends on a lot going on but those are some of the areas that I want because I don't wanna be prematurely stopped out what could happen I want to reduce my chances of.

"Zmir rack and let me tell you something he is no jive Turkey John welcome back thanks Eric I I thought of another aspect of the immigration issue that I think is important act yes I have an article about it and the title is our cats for immigrants should be nakedly political action a we have we have talked about that in yeah I'm a different aspect of it recently there was a big battle among the United Methodist as to whether they would start doing same sex marriages and there was a huge battle and the and the let the theological left there was very well funded and they didn't really they pull out all the stops to try to get the United Methodist the nomination to accept homosexuality as part as part of the order of sacrament I guess I have met is consider marriage a sacrament but it's certainly a holy right they they do in their church church in their sanctuary will would same sex marriage be accepted and one of the ways that the last try to win was by signing up new people as church members maybe even people needing to go to the church but they were related to somebody they just they collected names and they got people to sign up so that they could vote with that same sex marriage in Methodist churches and the last is doing that in America with immigration they're trying to import millions of future Democrat voters who will reliably and predictive please vote to keep abortion legal to continue restricting religious liberty to continue squeezing the church's squeezing Christian bakers and Chris Christian wedding planners and taking away our religious liberty bringing in new people who were predictably voting against all the values that you and I consider morally essential so I think a very good way to look at immigration as are we going to recruit everybody to join our church even if some of them are going to vote to betray Christian values on marriage it's very similar to say we're recruiting millions of new citizens how are they going to vote are they going to vote to take away our gun rights to raise our taxes so we can send their kids to Christian school that they're going to vote to you know for people who want to force L. G. B. T. ideology on Christian school I think the best way to decide who comes into the country obviously not their race not there Claire religion not even their economics I would say the best way to consider who we want to lead into the America club or the American church is do they believe the American creed will they always in a way that helps keep America free that protect unborn life that all the values we care about if we really care about them we want them to prevail because they're good because their gods wall written in the human heart if you want those values to prevail if you care about unborn children or religious freedom or any other kind of freedom that the Democrats want to destroy you don't want to flip Texas from red to blue not because we're gonna know Republicans no matter what we only want to party no because these parties represent values and the Democrats as he could be a mainstream pull patriotic political party they are now in the control of the extremists there's not one pro life democratic presidential candidate not even one who wants to stop partial birth abortion there's not one democratic candidate who support any kind of control and immigration is not one who was spoken up for religious liberty there's not one who supports gun any meaningful gun right the Democrats have homogenize themselves and become radical laughed at the ironic thing is some Republicans like couple rose said well when the Latinos come and they will bring family values with them and help make America more pro life will now in fact as the Democratic Party has been able to rely more and more on docile immigrants who doesn't vote for them you know by seventy eighty percent margins it's actually gone for the last they used to be for a Democrat there aren't any is no question to be socially Democrat there aren't anymore we've tried the experiment of flooding the country with immigrants from Latin America to see if it will make the American more pro life more conservative more Christian and it has failed it is back fire it is time shop for the sake of everything else we think it's important from unborn children to low taxes to small government to personal freedom all those things immigration will destroy all of them well that I mean listen this is the way this country used to be when my parents came to this country Lee as legal immigrants they had to effectively prove that they understood what they were getting into that they understood that to govern yourself means to bite into these ideas about American style self government and liberty and that we each have a responsibility you know they have the the onus was on them to say yes I get it yes I want to be a part of that club what we've done today of course is said we we don't care about that anymore we're not going to act in our self interest but I would say that when we as Americans act in our self interest in fact we are acting in the interests of the greater good there's no question that this is not naked self interest that when when we care about these things we're caring about them precisely because we want to bless as many people as we can we want people to come here and not to be a drag on the system but to actually increase the wealth of the whole and that's something that's been lost we don't do that anymore it you know John you're going to get a copy very soon but my new book Donald builds the wall it is effectively an explanation of what you have just said it's that we build a wall and people who love freedom we want them to come in but people who don't love freedom they can't come in if you want to be part of this new culture this nation whatever it is you have to love freedom you have to at least want to be free you have to care about the notion of it and we have really I mean you and I have seen in our lifetimes the Democratic Party has gone so far left that we can't even agree on that to me that is seriously troubling I mean it's it's really an amazing thing people forget that the Democratic Party was not like that in nineteen eighty nine seventy was not like that Donald Trump is trying to enforce the law that the Democrat Congress passed and Bill Clinton signed that if you if you come here legally with the green card and you end up on welfare you you you go all the Democrats passed that law and Bill Clinton signed it now when the when Donald Trump finally try to enforce it because George Bush didn't are now it's great they're being told that traces so there was a racist in the nineties not only but of course Nancy Pelosi is a racist of course everyone is now racist we're out of time John smear act my friend thank you so much thank you the price of gold is.

sixty six to seven seventy six and just insanity where they just rounded out everything and they started destroying all the cultural artifacts the historic anything that it represented historical memory tradition convention it had to be raised to the ground and I saw the same things happening here like literature being thrown out of the curriculum you know of course we see statues being defaced all kinds of historical memory to being a race it's it's it's to me it's it's started the fate seem like the same what was in my house purpose for doing that well he was he was very self motivated first place trying to eliminate any competition that he was having within the Marty so if he got all these red guard and they were all students very very you know gullible and enthusiastic and racy and he got them like Hey guess what you can go in and basically overthrow the classroom how would you like to go in and kick your teacher out or how would you like to put them on trial that's happening yeah that's happening now in America and so he he actually turned look the populace against the stated they guess the very social Warner itself I am too to dissolve it so that he would have absolute the primacy which who is the now of our time how is how is this how is this happening it's just if you have a lot of many miles I I column many miles yeah because there's no big figures like this that are that are able to I mean you have you know you have the the some of the curve to the north Korean leader but I mean yeah that that doesn't count we're talking about like in our world there there's a few people but I mean there's a lot of P. somewhere where it's coming from these these people that are tapping into their moral superiority on their authoritarian impulses and they they're they're they're moral probity they think they're absolutely right and they think they have the truth on their side and they're on the right side of history this is the case if you're on the right side of history because they think history is going in a direction happens to be the direction they want to go in you know it's called is called weakest history because that that's how the Whigs thought in in Great Britain they thought that you know there was a progress narrative of history of course the progress was all going the way that towards their kinds of policies this is the same thing these people hold a whole of progress narrative it's all going their way basically anything new is good including any new genders anything that anything not new is this axe right you know I am done it's just like in the Soviet Union they started calling you know in the during the great terror anybody that was designated as an axe the axe that is your ex official acts this a staff from another from the earlier regime your honor going to the gulag so I I say that since it's kind of like the equivalent of axe it's a way of marking the antiquated who must go down how do the obvious question here Michael how do these people who say they're fighting against authoritarian yeah how do they not see that they are exactly what they despise it's amazing I thought if I was a cartoonist yeah I would draw a picture of an anti five character looking in a mirror NEC's on his forehead swastika okay yeah because they are absolutely replicas of the are they think there again they are the brown shirts so the blackshirts yes it's very frightening but what's frightening about it is the on self consciousness of that how do you how is the self delusion slow thank that you could actually be the incarnation of what you think you're against a lot of people will say that it was people like you work around or or may have been yeah the campuses that are that are just filling peoples heads with gobbledygook I can't I can't even tell you I mean it's so sad to me it's so sad what's happened I think that like for example what happens the college curricula they've turned it into like basically it's a moral program based on social justice as the main creed and they've read anything with that doesn't fit I don't like for example at that so as in in in London it's a university that they threw out all white male philosophers from the from the philosophy curriculum okay that's all western plus everybody yeah that's exactly there isn't much you know maybe it leaves and round but I mean I'm not a doctor and teacher no so there's not much left and and you know whatever reason still you know these are people that contributed a great deal our site yeah yes in our culture read Plato today and you can learn a lot of fun and I mean however you want to think about it you know there is a great connection between platonic played played I was gonna go thinking and Christianity for example there's a great deal of connection there whether you think that you know Christianity barred from it or it was a precursor that sort of set the stage you know it works either way but it definitely is deeply foundational to the way we are so how many people this is the argument I think people are having in themselves war unfortunately it's keeping them blind because they think that there's not enough people that actually believe in these things and so they're going to you know this is just going to stop at some point and you do see evidence that people are waking up yet because they're pushing way too far right but how many people do you think on the campuses if you look at it you know through polls seventy eighty percent are buying into it yeah what I heard was then why you the students will tell me that the that the worst places weren't even the classrooms of the dormitories where the students were self patrolling each other in the social justice create and they were at correcting each other if they you know we're saying or doing or acting in a wrong way according to the created so there was a lot of like censorship going on within the dormitories and stuff like that and like a lot of you know like black bawling students and it was a sound like a horror show and I was I was living the worst of it as far as a professor who's not you don't get out in four years yeah yeah that's they throw you out right you know they only have a short term there it's not gonna last forever but you know I had to live with that and it's spooky all right up more with Michael like rector while we're.

And then right now we're down about thirty points negative and the reason for that is that as we've been saying all week here Phil's gang is that there's just not enough volume right? There's more seller volume than there is I in volume and that's why we are where we are right now with thirty three point drop back to you fill. All right. Thank you very much, good, good.

But most people walked away from the market, because they're fearful, they saw what happened dot com. They saw it has the housing cot. So they stayed away. They just went to bonds or something else, which what a shame think of the money that you left on the table, you only got back into the market two thousand nine two thousand ten how much return you to because would the market rigged financially to make sure it always goes up through stock buybacks for ten years zero money, zero. Money's of course, the market's going to think of the mammoth, while you could. Well you could achieved but it hasn't stopped yet because here's what they're doing now. Now in the last seven months, remember the market has not gone up at all the market. Remember dropped in October. To December twenty four two thousand eighteen they rallied back up December twenty six. Back up to may of two thousand nineteen to right? Where was the peak in October? So if you look at the Mark on the chart, we haven't gone anywhere, it dropped right back up where we stood? So that means the economy's not growing the markets, not even grown anymore. So what are they doing? They're going to turn around now. And they're gonna push rates back down to influence a rally to convince people the rates down. So we're going to buy stocks, so you should be in that market again, in, you got no what stocks to be in and that's where we are.

We saw short ten percent profit this after made profits on the way up Caterpillar, twelve percent profit slumber J twenty percent because we could sell them with the same ease short as purchasing they're the key. And that's why so many people have not gotten back into the stock market there.

This is fair and equal and the fact is that if you're the best at this, they'll hire you to do the job. No. Then they turn. And they look at the coaches, and they said, why don't we have more black coaches? Why don't we have more black owners in the NF? Elders actually a specific rule. It's called the Rooney rule in it says at every time a team has a coach a coaching hiring opportunity for head coach they have to they have to interview a minority coach they don't have to hire one have it. So plenty of them will get token interviews when they've already decided that they're going to hire this other guy, but they'll bring this guy in just interview them just because they have to which to me is just the most demeaning and patronizing thing. It's terrible interview. Because interview me because of the color of my skin interview me because I'm a I'm qualified for the job. Now. What do you think is more important which role in a team? Do you think is is more important having all the right men on the field or having the right coach to lead those men and to train them to get them working together? Here's the answer to that question you need both. Yup. A great team requires all the right people on the field all working together and great coach to lead them. Inspire them and train them. And the actually in the NFL, for example. There are multiple. Coaches that help with that. So why is it that the NFL would operate as a true and free market for the players on the field, but then would show massive discrimination..

Oprah hits the campaign trail for Stacey Abrams
"Which are kind of those trueblue issues but her opponent in the primary. Dick, say, you know, I have more interest appeal, and I'll do better in the general election and the same for the Republican side. You know, you had to Lieutenant governor Casey K goal and Brian Kemp. Who's the secretary of state was the Trump guy? He was the one who was more on the. Extremes when it came to policies and being anti immigration and things like that. And I think that's tough for a lot of voters. But also, that's why camping Abrahams really have continued to play to their base in campaign to their base Abrahams. A little bit more has gone out of traditional democratic areas. But Kemp is mostly staying in those Republican areas and really campaigning in rural Georgia where he hopes to win votes is that where the the racist decided is it if rural voters turn out and support camp overwhelmingly is it the suburbs in those fast growing Atlanta area, or is it turning out voters who traditionally don't come out midterm elections, especially younger voters and voters of color. Many of whom live in Atlanta that is definitely Abrahams playbook she is trying to turn out voters who don't normally both focus on early voting and voting by mail in again, she has traveled every county in Georgia some of them twice. But again, her bread and butter is gonna. Be carrying metro Atlanta by a margin as she can. Because that'll help offset some of the rule red Georgia counties where Donald Trump carried by you know, sixty seventy eighty percent in some areas. But I also to your point Georgia is becoming a battleground state, and particularly if Democrats can pull out some upsets on election day, not just with the gubernatorial race. But if they can pick up some seats in the general assembly, I think that will further make Georgia a place that is maybe not as red as people at once believed in that will again as both parties start looking towards the presidential election in two years. They have to look at that that they have to look at the electoral college in Georgia is a big state. That's an excellent point. And I wonder let's take the opposite outcome. Stacey Abrams loses Republicans hold onto those house seats. What? Will Democrats be saying about this election? Will there be criticism about the kind of campaign that Stacey Abrams ran that? She ran too far to the left that to win. Here you need to be much more of a centrist candidate. I definitely think if Democrats lose it will reinforce the notion that Georgia is still pretty read. It will remain red for the short term, and what that
