Black Friday 2020 Sales Reports
"In store sales on black friday where fifty two percent lower than a year ago. That should not surprise anyone online. Sales were up big also not surprise. This actually did surprise me a little bit. Though jason online sales on friday in the united states made it the second biggest day ever for online sales cyber monday last year is the biggest all time black friday this year second-placed that might get bumped down to third place after this year cyber monday. But what did you think of the reports of black friday. Yeah i mean. I think you hit on something there in to today cyber monday. I think you're right. No surprise almond spending on black. Friday grew twenty one point six percent. That was a new record. It was around nine billion dollars worth of purchases that were recorded in the forecast for today for cyber monday this year. It's slated it's it's it's slated to become the largest digital sales day ever spending is forecast to reach somewhere between ten point. Eight billion in twelve point seven billion dollars that would represent growth of fifteen to thirty five percent from last year. You no surprise really there. I think to me what really stood out and again not surprising but still stood out. Because it's just pretty darn impressive was shop by shop by his stock obviously a lot of our listeners. A lot of our members and subscribers are all very familiar with in. It's been a good year for shoplifting. Is stock up around one hundred and seventy five percent. The numbers that day chalked up for black friday really impressive two point. Four billion dollars in black friday sales that was about seventy five percent growth from last year so clearly the investments. They've been making in business all along the way or paying off. And i think the thing the thing there is because we can sit there and criticize shop five for example oh it's overvalued or you know it doesn't make a lot of sense because the business doesn't make that much money yet that that may be true but these are the type of these types of numbers that will i think afford some time i think as long as they continue to record these types of numbers the market is going to continue giving it Some wiggle room there. We've seen it with amazon. We've seen it certainly with wayfair. I think i don't think it'll be different but there were some interesting numbers. There within shop of is report that i think are just worth noting average black friday cart price. Globally was just under ninety one dollars. That was up eleven percent from a year ago so people spent a little bit more in need thing here in this mobile world. We always talk about how mobile is really leading. Four mobile sales on black friday this year. If you look at the breakdown between mobile sales and desktop it was sixty seven percent mobile versus thirty three percent desktop in last year that was sixty nine percent mobile and thirty one percent desktop so the differences is marginal but it seems worse shopping on desktop this year for obvious reasons and so the data i think but yeah it all goes back towards this digital economy that we're witnessing in it. It's it's seems like it has a lot of traction. I don't know that we're necessarily going to be going back anytime soon. I'm glad you mentioned shop five because we have talked a lot about the big retailers like walmart and target in particular the investments that they have made this year for curbside pickup for delivery all of that but worth as you said pointing out the investments shop by his made and this is a stock that i do not own i. I understand both sides of it. It is definitely on my watch. List having pulled the trigger yet. But but i understand the concerns. I understand the around valuation the lack of profitability. And maybe that's why we've seen the rise that we've seen for target and walmart this year because those are just fundamentally. I think a little easier for people to wrap their heads around. But as you said. I mean what what is the future going to be. Is it going. is it going to be well. Wants to all this is behind us. We're just to start going back to the mall now. I don't think so it's going to be more online shopping and to your point more mobile shopping. I think you are. I think you're right there. I just continued to be impressed with wayfair for example the mobile mobile numbers that they continue to record are really impressive. And that's that's furniture. Man i mean like people are shopping for furniture on their phones in regard to shop applied. I think when you when you look at the future. I don't think it's going to be one or the other. I think we've talked about this before really when we talk about target and walmart i mean it really is becoming about omni channel right. It's just meeting. The consumer wherever the consumer wants to be met in the more that companies the more that retailers are able to do this They're going to be able to take advantage of the digital economy. They're going to be able to take advantage of people wanting to actually physically go to stores In so i. I think the future is going to be a little bit of both but certainly shop. A fi is keying in on their specialty. In and i think more growth is going to be coming in. Obviously bad digital space shop is is absolutely one of the companies dictating the development of that space so even even next year. When i think it's probably safe to assume that that we get a little bit more back to normal in and the the the in person shopping experiences a little bit less risky. We'll see people wanting to get out. We'll see people wanting to go to stores and have fun with that experience But but that that. I don't think it's going to really Deter people from shopping online. I mean hopefully. I think ultimately what i'd love to see just this whole black friday cyber monday thing. I really like the fact that we're stretching and just this whole month so it's not really about fewer sales. It's just about timing right. We're just stretching over the course of a month as opposed to really isolating on on individual days. I liked to see that. Continue to wear these concepts. These retailers are not just leveraged to a couple of particular days toward the end of the year. Just real quick before we move onto our next story on that point. Are you seeing this in your own personal life. Because i have in. The last week noticed that the promotional emails i get from different retailers are basically saying. Hey our black. Friday sale is gonna last for the next ten days. It's like the subject line in the email is black friday sale. And then you look. It's like oh this is actually going through december ninth. Yeah i feel like. I've seen a lot of that just anecdotally. I do feel like. I've seen a lot more of that. I think that's that's the right thing to do again. It's just it's a bit of a different time but hopefully as we've seen throughout this whole year this year has been an accelerator for change and a lot of good ways. And maybe this'll be one more thing one more change that will witness over the course of the coming years in the i think ultimately they'll be a
How small stores are cutting through the noise from the big-box stores this season
"Are a business show. So yes we're going to start with what today means for a big chunk of the economy retail because the deals extravaganza. We still call black. Friday has actually already begun. The pandemic has a lot of us. Rethinking our shopping. 'cause we really wanna live in a world where only the big national chains survive. A survey from at taxi found that seventy five percent of shoppers planned to make an effort to shop local. This holiday season marketplace's kristen schwab reports usually this shopping weekend at territories in austin texas is one big celebrating and they walk in. They think they've joined like some mosh pit of Toys shoppers sylvia edwards says the general manager children running up and down everywhere loud music. You know noises from different toys being played with a cacophony of magic madness. And so it'll never get like that this year and not just because of social distancing territories has divided shopping hours. Grownups only ten to four all ages. Welcome four to six. The store is also offering night owl tours. Private appointments for shoppers after closing. You get a whole hour in the toy store and then a little personal salesperson that walks you through the store shows. You are twee workshop where we still cut wood and make toys. These are the kinds of personal touches. That could help. Small retailers cut through all the noise coming from big box stores. Disol- the keller at mintel says traditionally a third of shoppers to most of their buying this weekend and the message from retailers. She says is that they hope to see even bigger numbers this year. Basically start thinking about your holiday shopping and now because it's just only going to be more of a challenge to get what people want on time. The goal this season make day an occasion to shop. Frank reese who owns acapella books in atlanta is doing that with extra virtual book clubs and author events. A lot of our business in normal times. is not in this little store. What a lot of businesses is offsite events. And he's doing the free delivery thing by hand because you know amazon sells books to. I'm kristen schwab for marketplace.
Bill Gates, the Virus and the Quest to Vaccinate the World
"Who gates welcome back to the daily social distancing. Show good to see you you lost. Join us on the show. I would say it was about seven months ago and seven months ago. Just like dr fauci. You said you will worried because you felt like the worst was yet to come a lot of people accused you of peddling fear and terror and now it appears that unfortunately you were correct. Here's my question to you. Why does it seem like we've become worse at handling the pandemic you know in europe in the us then we were seven months ago when seven months ago. It was so bad. Well there's a couple of things working against us. I is that with the winter when we're colder we. The virus multiplies more and more indoors. More so that is not a good thing and then there's a certain fatigue. Some of the things people have had to do in terms of staying away from friends. That's tougher i've to say this round. It looks like europe is getting better compliance with the restrictions than the. Us is so they're starting to see a downturn. When you talk about that compliance and when you talk about the downturn is part of the downturn like should we should we be looking at the virus cases or should we be looking at the deaths because i never know which one is more important than usual. Be like a million more people to me. Five million seven million and then you'll see some doctors saying yes but fewer people are dying from because we know how to treat it. How should we be looking at this virus and the fight that we have against. It's well the case is our leading indicator it is true that cases are translating into less doubts for two reasons. One is that the cases are more in the young people Who are less likely to be very sick. And the other is that the quality of treatment including some new drugs like decks method have been proven out so when you do get hospitalized you have a higher chance of survival but were predicted to go back to over two thousand deaths a day in the months ahead so for the next six to eight months news is mostly bad after that the volume of the vaccine will have kicked in and then we'll have a light at the end of the tunnel. Wow i mean the the question is then i think for a lot of people is like. How long tunnel. How bad does that tunnel get. And how do we stop it from being the worst possible tunnel one of the big things. A lot of people are worried about is going to be the transition between joe biden. donald trump. You know you've worked with governments all over the world working on their vaccine distribution working on healthcare around the planet. You know how important it is for one administration to talk to the next when it comes to Handing off on their plans. How much do you think this will actually affect america's response if if there isn't a transition well it's unfortunate that the current administration got tied into a positive narrative that you know we're turning the corner And that you now have this transition will make. The message is a little less clear. You know this is when you'd love to see the best. Cdc people on tv reminding us about social distancing and masks. You know particularly when there is that fatigue out there so leaders at all level. This is a chance to step up even on politicians. You know encouraging friends that hey we. We don't want this additional several hundred thousand deaths you know it'd be adjective. A person who dies know when the vaccine is absolutely on the way and so i think the good news should drive compliance not lacks laxity as somebody who's done work globally around healthcare for so long especially around infectious diseases. What have you found is the key to encouraging or convincing community members to buy into the measures that keep them safe where we had vaccine resistance with polio and they're getting the religious leaders to speak out have them a visibly vaccinating their own children for would like we'd never stopped polio in africa and yet now it's just been certified that we've gone three years without wild polio so activating the trust hierarchy and getting rid of the conspiracy political element to it and just reminding people you know in this case. It's about saving lives in that case it's about kids not being paralyzed people back to that. Very human impact. If we don't behave well. I think it will often come through. It's interesting that you bring up conspiracies because the conspiracy theories about you online have are insane on social media and social media has propagates them in a way where it's like bill gates is trying to create vaccines so that he can cook troll your minds and he wants to vaccinate. Everybody can implant change. People's dna is what they said. You're going to change our dna. So that i don't know we turn into something and then we work for you somewhere. I don't know the full story. I'm still learning it when you see these things first of all. Have you been able to track down where it comes from. And secondly have you. Even i know you think about these things you want to like the biggest thing because i hadn't even thought about like the motivation behind it because i'm always trying to figure out who benefits from a conspiracy theory and i'd love to know if you've put any thought to this at all because of how many people won't get a vaccine because they truly believe conspiracy theories yeah usually when you work on infectious disease like dr fauci and high do your your kind of obscure in a nobody talks about t be or or malaria so here we have this complete turnaround where vaccines and are they. Good for people are now front and center. And there's always been a small group of anti vaccination people and we see this with you know measles vaccine. They've now got a platform and they've sort of joined forces with some political and spiracy abuse and it's so easy to click on particularly when a simple explanation for this pandemic that there is somebody evil behind it. You know as somehow easier than you know the true biology which is actually kind of complicated so we have to make the truth more interesting. And you know we've got a label things with the truth and sadly the naievety about how to make social media work. Well is pretty strong. And that's coincided with the election and the epidemic. I wish i had the answer. But you know it's it's it's out there in big big numbers and hasn't it just keeps growing so when we look at the vaccine. Now i mean that's now the story you know. Now the world is waiting for the vaccine because the vaccine becomes the key that unlocks the doors. You say the lights at the end of the tunnel. The question then is how do people get the vaccine. How effective will the distribution method be and how difficult is will the vaccine short supply. The good news is that there's four other vaccines that are likely to get approved fairly quickly as well. The fact that pfizer worked so well makes us optimistic. That astrazeneca johnson and johnson vacs which those are much cheaper easier to scale and don't require that cold chain so we'll have a lot of scenes and we need to prioritize people. At risk elder people people working nursing homes and each country Will have to decide okay. Who goes first. That's still a little bit confused in the us but hopefully we'll get that straightened out very very soon because the vaccine is likely to be shipped a lot in the month of december as you said anti vaccine community has only grown over time. I think the us is now the biggest hub of anti vexes in the world it started as a fringe thing with measles now with corona it is fully fledged and because of politics it's been amplified so now you'll have some people who on the liberal side saying i don't trust that vaccine it was made under trump and then you'll have other people saying like i don't trust that vaccine that came from joe biden and the and the democrats trying to brainwash. It's a lot of people may not want to take the vaccine which may now go against everything we've worked toward. So how do you begin convincing people that the vaccine is safe like in the midst of this political crisis. Well it's clear that the fda through the professional staff. They're all the things that are supposed to do likewise pfizer. There's even an external committee that will weigh in just to make absolutely sure that the the political desire to get this quickly did not in fact the efficacy and safety review and i feel very confident because the people involved are are really doing their job. Well we don't need everyone to take the vaccine. Society will have to decide if there's some jobs like going to a nursing home in taking care of somebody's grandparents whether that person you know how strongly you encourage them to have a vaccine so they're not spreading seeing but with this level of efficacy if we can get to seventy five percent dosed then you'll block the spread of the disease with measles you'd have to get to like ninety five percent because it's even more infectious but the good news here is that we just need that maturity and i think as people see people taking the vaccine and they see that The side effects of any are very very rare. That confidence will build and that will be good for society because when you take the vaccine you're helping to protect other people.
Genetic Engineering in Animal Agriculture
"Welcome to the talking biotech. The weekly podcast but agriculture and medicine with an emphasis on biotechnology. And the good things we can do for people and the planet. My name's kevin polka. I'm your podcast host and western plant biology coming to you from archer florida on the exotic farm and we're going to talk about animal. Agriculture and how biotechnology has or maybe hasn't been able to improve animal agriculture. And we're speaking with dr mark west susan. He's a professor at texas a and m. veterinary medicine in the area. Physiology and pharmacology. So i've been trying to get him on the podcast for about five years and here he is finally so welcome to the podcast dr west. Houston thank you so much can. Yeah this is really cool. Because you're you've been Not just involved in your research work at in your research directly with animal genetic engineering and working with different projects but you also have a very good sense of what's happening. Globally in animal agriculture. So i really wanted to get an idea you know. What is the current state of genetic engineering across livestock and livestock pertaining to the four legged. Ones you know. Maybe not chickens. But we've covered a few on the podcast. But what are the current agricultural animals that are being improved with genetic engineering techniques. Kevin so i would say that almost every livestock species that you can imagine or think of including chickens as you mentioned but if you think about sheep goats cattle pigs and even to some extent horses Our genetic modifications that scientists are looking into to benefit either the animals themselves and or the products that they produce for us. So it's it's it certainly has a lot of potential and there's a lot of work going on in in with all all the different species. Will you named a few different species there. And as a general rule. How is transformation. Don is it the same from goats sheeps pigs horses or is there. Something unique about you know. Different wants the general methodology that she used for genetic modification animals or gene. Editing is essentially the same. And i would say that with the new technologies that we have involving crisper cast meghan. Nuclear aces It can be as simple as collecting an embryo at the one cell stage injecting it with the necessary molecular tools and then Transferring that embryo back into a recipient female to produce genetically modified animal. If the if the modification that you're looking for is more complicated or say you want a very specific promoter on it you want it. The gened only expressed or the the outcome of the of the modification to only show up in a particular tissue. Say milk or something like that then sometimes the modification. The complication of it would require that you would take a cell line Genetically modified the cell line and then do some screening and genetically modified again until you got the proper cell line then use that with nuclear transplantation cloning to produce the desired genotype that looking for but essentially it's the technologies are the same across species. The differences come up a really in controlling the reproductive cycle is the old the older technologies that have been around for a long time I think that that tend to sometimes throw a monkey wrench into the projects. In i worked for instance i work quite a bit on For years on dogs and if anyone wanted to Genetically modified dog is kind of. we're not talking livestock species but the reproductive tract is quite a bit are the reproductive cycle is a lot different and so they can become a lot more challenging. Where do you get the ovaries. Where do you get the embryos how synchronized different things like that. Okay so i. I see that. It's probably kind of the same across most of our barnyard animals. But so let's start with sheep. I really don't know much about sheep i haven't heard much about it. But what approaches are current. What is the problem in sheep first of all and what's being done to solve that problem. There's really no problem with sheep. I think there's a left. Oh i would call it a leftover kind of thought that she difficult to work with because dali was one of the You know first sheep that was cloned and if you look at sheep from a standpoint of clowning they are. They do seem to be very difficult. And i don't think anyone really knows why they seem to be a species. That for some reason The efficiency of cloning doesn't work it. It just doesn't work very well if you compare that. For instance the cattle. Are you compared it to go to some of the other species is just. It's hard to clownish eat. But if you if you get out of the cloning aspect and you say i'm just wanna do genetic editing. We've we've done a lot of genetic editing and cheapen. It works very well. We we use the process. As i said earlier where we just collect embryos at the one cell stage we take them into the laboratory inject our crisper cast to do the modification. We wanted walk back over to the unit. The surgery unit transform back into the cheapen and produced a large number of genetically edited a shape. Genetics are in my lab. The we were looking at was to create a bu- a model for bone disease. And i want to say we obtain like seventy five percent
Amazon Pharmacy Sends Pharmacy Stocks Down
"We have two of the biggest retailers out with their latest earnings report. That is going to have to take a backseat today. The news from amazon which just announced the launch of amazon pharmacy. Here in the us. You can order prescription drugs. Have them delivered to your home. Prime members get discounts and the reaction from the pharmacy. Stocks is pretty eye-popping. cvs health walgreens rite aid. Good rx they are all getting hit. Jason yeah they are in. I mean i understand why i think. This is likely overreaction to an extent. And i just i hearken back to when amazon announced its acquisition of whole foods. Remember the grocery store stocks at that point took a pretty steep nosedive on that news and and again understandable i mean amazon is extremely competitive in in a threat and a lot of ways. But but i mean you fast forward to today and certainly leaders in the grocery space have recovered. I mean they have been the most compelling investments in the world but it wasn't it wasn't fatal that said this announcement from amazon doesn't make the farmers jobs any easier. I mean when we speak about. Cvs walgreen those are companies that while they have big storefronts and they have that grocery dynamic to them. I mean they really are. They do rely on that pharmacy. Right i mean. Cbs for example pharmacy is more than seventy five percent of their business. And so that really really does matter. And so i understand the selling their particularly when you look at what amazon has done to date. I mean they've done a lot of the heavy lifting and compete in. This is red. Think they're able to participate in this market. Forty five states. Now they accept. Most insurance is a massive massive market. Opportunity writes something like a three hundred billion dollar market. So i think there are reasons for companies like cvs and walgreens to be concerned. I think there's probably a reason for something like a good rx to be more concerned. And and so i understand. The market's reaction to that more so than than perhaps the pessimism on on the bigger companies like cbs. Today
Hired Guns are Driving Up Some Gig Platform Stocks
"The labor market is still recovering unevenly from the pandemic's impact the health of the job market swings wildly from industry to industry but one group of workers is winning almost across the board freelancers. A recent survey by upwork. A freelance job search platform found that more than thirty five percent of the. Us workforce is now doing some gig work that's an increase of roughly two million people from last year. It's not hard to figure out why as companies try to get by with skeleton crews. They occasionally need some extra for higher but don't want to incur the expense of a full time employees and people who have lost their jobs sell their time and talent as independent contractors to get by freelance platforms like upwork offer easy matchmaking. between workers and gigs. here's how it works companies post. Their temporary talent needs and freelancers answered the call companies. Get the talent. They need freelancers. Get the gigs. And upwork takes a cut of the growing number of transactions and those numbers. Add up upward crushed. Its third quarter earnings estimates earlier this month. The stock's price is nearly tripled over year. Another freelance platform with a much broader base of job offerings is fiber and. It's also having a very good year in late. October earnings call. The company said it expects revenue to be up. Seventy five percent overall this year like its rivals. Fiber is benefiting from the flood of freelancers in the marketplace and the number of companies seeking additional help from contractors but the past year has an entirely been a bed of roses for freelancers and freelance platforms. As we told you in august a wave of legislation is redefining. What it means to be an employee making it harder for companies to lawfully hire freelancers. The i was california's. Ab five but similar legislation has been introduced in a number of other states and at the federal level in the pro act which passed the house of representatives. This year in california. Ab five was especially punishing rideshare workers in an attempt to force companies like uber and lift to classify drivers as employees however in the recent election voters allow drivers to remain independent bypassing proposition. Twenty two now they can remain independent but are subject to certain wage and hour regulations freelancers and business groups and other states continue to fight the legislation. There's another issue with these platforms to transparent displays of hourly rates and the competitive nature of platforms leads contractors to underbid to get the work as eric based consulting firm. A connect says quote the tenders of freelance platforms are forcing prices down. And they're taking a big chunk off the top of those lower fees to both upward and fiber charged freelancers as much as twenty percent of the transaction depending on the cost of the project. Even so some freelancers like the fact that these marketplaces have lots of work that needs to be done. So they're willing to accept less money to forego finding the work themselves and with so many more freelancers on the market. Now a gig in hand may be worth the sacrifice.
UK announces ban on sale of locked phones
"So reuters announced that britain is to stop mobile operator selling locked handsets. This is apparently like i. And wow worldwide. Yeah seems seems like a big deal to me. And i was somewhat unexpected. Not following these things. Really closely yeah. I'd miss that. This was in development. And rico what do you make of. This sounds like a big deal. That is a major deal. Actually never even know. I didn't see that article it's going to have to have a look at it was crazy. The ban will come into effect as of december. Twenty twenty one. So let's not get too excited another year. Hopefully there will be some way to bring in a delay but off come has come up with this. As part of a package of measures allegedly designed to ensure customers are treated fairly and to make switching from one mobile operator to another easier. This also i was gonna say this has implications for secondhand market as well right. You know when you're stood in front of those stores that resell mobiles and you can either. The value of a locked phone is much less So it has bigger implications yeah convenience for customer moving between provider major so. Let's hope that this is really also the beginning of the end of network operators trying to sell more phones locked into their networks just as a way to like lure you into their network and hopefully people will be able to keep the phone that feels okay with them and just decide. What is the best network for their purposes. Second-story with we are quite happy to see again unexpectedly. The bbc reported that Electric goods should have repairability following the move by france to implement a scheme as of twenty twenty one that will label goods initial few good good rate their repairability and in the future. Also how environmentally friendly they are one lebed damn. Mp actually stated that we should be Having the same in britain and this is great news. Because we've been campaigning for this for quite a while and janet. Do you think there is any political opportunity to bring this to the uk anytime soon. Well i'm not sure but we know that indefinite others great interest in what's happening in france and the one thing that did stand out to you about the bbc article is that they went to talk to lib dem's degree but didn't get any comment from labor so big question mark about both what the government thinks about this and what labor thinks about it. Yes it seems significant that they went on the record on that and the other big story of course we don't have a degree detail but the ballot measure in massachusetts which was being voted also on tuesday was overwhelmingly voted were massachusetts. Voters voted for the right to repair is a complex measure and they were bombarded with really scary advocate by the auto industry trying to convince them not to but voters voted by seventy five percent margin to support the right to repair in massachusetts which kind of basically matches if almost all of the polling that we've seen in canada in europe about the popularity of right to repair measures so that was kind of come through the the through the actual polls in ballot boxes. Well and one. We didn't need to wait for that long to get there so we'll see what kind of implications this will have. This was specifically about access to softer for cars. But this will have implications hopefully for future policy related to write to repair something that will keep an eye on in coming months
Trump sues in 3 states, laying ground for contesting outcome
"Pennsylvania republicans want to take the secretary of state out president. Trump's team is creating an all-star legal bench and colorado wrote a blue wave on tuesday pennsylvania. Senate republican leaders wednesday called on secretary of state. Kathy book varta resign immediately given her role in the state's electoral mayhem twice in the last couple of days. A secretary of state has fundamentally altered. The manner in which pennsylvania's election is being conducted the constantly changing guidance. She's delivered to counties not only directly contradicts the election code language that she sworn to uphold but it also conflicts her own litigation statements and decisions of both the pennsylvania supreme court and the united states supreme court. The secretary told the. Us supreme court on october twenty eight that ballots received after eight pm on november third would be segregated but then she changed the rules on november first and directed counties to canvases ballots as soon as possible. Well in some counties. It's not possible to both segregate and canvas ballots as directed this directive leaves open the possibility that timely votes will be co mingled with votes received after eight pm on election day. Despite the fact that the votes remain the subject of litigation before the united states supreme court president trump won forty five percent of the latino vote in florida which is largely responsible for him. Winning the state on election day in all trump won florida by only three percentage points. It's mark than his one point. Two percentage point margin in the last presidential election in two thousand sixteen trump won an impressive thirty five percent of latino votes to win the state. Many of which came from miami dade that region provided trump seventy five percent of his net. Vote again
Joining the Military in the Medical Core
"Would you tell them to go. Your saint path. I have a daughter who's currently in school now And she is Actually as we speak benefiting from my military career in that she's able to access the mighty. Gi bill to help pay for some of her school. I would if you wanted to. It can be a rewarding career for anyone not just not just men. Men and women in today's military are Are essential and a lot of the medical corps in the military is winning and just just like medical school classes. Nowadays fifty percent of the students are women. Probably close to that in military medicine as well. You know surgery is probably still more dominated by men. But there's there's all kinds of roles for different medical providers in the military. And if somebody wanted to do this what is do you join us. join outright up. It depends on what you wanna do. i looked into joining a full-time military career that you have to accept some of their limitations though if you join as an as house fully active component by that i mean sometimes they have a say in what kind of what kind of specialty training you're going to do at least initially For sure they have say where you're going to live While you're on active duty as a reservist you get to enjoy being a doctor sometimes in the civilian practice and you get to enjoy being a soldier and in reality The military medical corps is made up seventy seventy five percent reservists. Because there's not enough for full time. Active duty trauma surgeons at every military base in the country In in reality most people in the military are sort of young and healthy people. That don't always need a doctor as much as a civilian practice does so. Finally my last question is what

The Secrets to Bootstrapping to $5M ARR in Less than a Year with Martha Bitar
"So. Let's talk about how we bootstrapped flow desk from zero to five million era in less than a year, and it probably makes sense to share what we do. So flow desk is an email marketing tool that makes at ridiculously easy for you to design emails people love to get. And here's a founding team. So Rebecca who heads our product is a designer by trade she used to design for rockstars like Linkin Park. and. Trung. probably looks familiar because he's already built a couple of companies and he's already exited a couple of credit companies as well, and I'm not your typical founder at least not statistically I started my career in sales. I am not a developer. I am a Mexican woman and I did not raise any money for Florida's we actually started Florida's as a side Hustle And yet we are at five million error in less than a year. We've taken zero funding. So we on one hundred percent of her company where growing a fifty percent month over month, and we have almost zero chart. So the question is, how did we do it and over sharing a couple of things from her playbook? Sharon full transparency hoping that you can grab as much as you can and apply yourself as well. But it really boils down to one key thing that we did in it is that we chose our customer. And in talking about how we bootstrap to five million, a are less than a year. We should probably talk about why would would strapped first. So as I mentioned before chose our customer very early on when you were we were going to build these four and we also made a decision very early on that we wanted to capture that customers validation before we got that investors validation. So we also knew that time spent talking to investors would be time spent away from customer so we just decided to. For, US but time early on and. That actually turned out to be our biggest secret. We found founder market bid and founder market meant that we newark awesome are very well, and in a way we also wear customer. So before building slow desk I spent time working honey book where I served specifically small business owners, creative small business owners and Rebecca in trunked we're building a business called gallery where they were selling email templates for small business owners as well and we were part of the community we were friends with other creative business owners and we Knew. there. Pain because we felt the pain too and we knew the solution because we would use to and bat was key to how fast we were able to build these. In one thing we found was just true across the board that regardless of where you are in your journey whether you're just that idea stage in your coming to get the knowledge of what is the best way to start or may already created MVP and you're already having in the product or maybe you're already scaling right and growing super-quick. Wherever you are deeply an intuitive understanding. Your customer will move the needle for you a crazy story that we had a early on as well was when we were lunch himself on wording. These was exactly a year and a week ago we realized that we needed a website because we couldn't expect people to sign up for product. If we didn't have a website in typically, companies will hire agency and they'll run some data surveys raid and we didn't have time to do these but we also in way knew intuitively what we needed to. Write in what site and we didn't create a website. We ended up creating landing page and just staying up at night and that west side just reflected the questions that we newer customers would ask and what they wanted to see before signing up for trial and yes eventually we're going to build a real website with like many pages and more information but. That learning page single landing, Page Converts Up Twelve Point Seventy, five percent, which is. Ten point seventy five percent more than your average SAS visitor to free trial commercial rates. The point is if you know if you really truly tried to deeply understand your customers, then you're going to know intuitively as well. How to resonate with them, what to say what to build and just going save you a lot of time. Here. It's just to break it down further you have your traditional startup story, right? So it typically starts with the founder who has an idea right? All of a sudden. There's lightbulb moment and they want to test hypotheses around that product by creating an MVP, an a minimum viable product what what is the least amount we can build to put out there and get validation? And when they build the product, they typically put it in front of a customer segment and customer segment can change right or might say the same in the process goes back and for the few times, right. You've been in front of your customers you hear what they have to say about it, and then you iterating based on that and you go around a couple of times. Truth. Is Ninety percent of startups fail at this point they don't don't make it past this
Energy Plan Launched by Tesla in the UK, Short Shorts Update
"Everybody Rob our here and today we are primarily talking about Tesla Energy Tesla has officially launched its energy service in the United Kingdom, and with that they've shared a lot of interesting details on their plans in that market. We then also have an update on delivery for Tesla's latest product or add. So starting off with Tessa Energy, tussle today, updated their website in the UK you can actually access this from I believe any country as long as you just go to the drop down and ginger location. So in the UK on Tesla's homepage there now, featuring a new product quote, the Tesla Energy plan designed for homes with solar and Power Wall. And Quote Tesla also has a nice little two minute video. They're sort of running through the entire process end to end. But basically what this energy plan does is utilized tussle power walls to create a virtual power plant in which Tesla will utilize their audit or software to manage energy storage levels in different distributed energy storage products such as the power wall. This adds value in a number of different ways, but I think the simplest way to understand it is to think of it as somewhat balancing the grid out Tesla can purchase energy when it's really cheap store it in the distributed network of power walls and then resell it when energy prices. Are High that's all managed in real time automatically by auditor software that helps balance out the grid and then tested profit from the differences in though selling prices. This is, of course, in addition to the normal benefits of having a power wall, which would be to store your renewable energy so that you can use that energy when your power production is not that high, and then of course, having backup energy in case of power outage, what that virtual power plant functionality enables is for tussle to partner with an energy retailer in this case, octopus energy in the UK to provide tuskers that have a power wall with a much cheaper energy plan. Than, they could get anywhere else tussle on the website says it can be up to seventy five percent cheaper for energy than any other available rate. So we're going to go into the details on that but I there are a couple of unique things we have to understand about the UK energy market, the first of which being the terminology. So in the UK essentially, each energy plan is known as a tariff I think generally, we think of tariff as being attacks, and here for the UK energy market, it does involve pricing, but it's broader than that. Basically, an energy tariff here is equivalent to saying an energy plan. So the tariff involves pricing. It involves whether you're power costs are fixed or variable your provider, the energy source that you're using whether that's renewable, -able or something else all of those details fit under what would be described as your energy tariff. So if we focus in on pricing, there are a couple of different charges. The first is what's known as a standing charge that is a daily fee they are paying basically for actively and UK power dot co dot UK says that the average staining charge for electricity in the UK is twenty point, five, eight pence per day twenty, point five pence is equivalent to twenty seven US sense. So that doesn't sound like a lot. But over the course of the year, that adds up to one hundred dollars on average. So that's the standing charge and there is a unit rate. So you're paying per kilowatt hour. Think we're operating used to that and on average that is fourteen point four pence per kilowatt hour sources vary on this, but it looks like the average home in the UK uses about four thousand kilowatt hours per year, which would lead to you `electricity costs five, hundred, seventy, six pounds per year. That's about seven hundred, fifty US dollars. So all in standing charge plus the actual payment for the electricity you're at about eight, hundred, fifty dollars per year and probably higher. If you have to charge electric vehicle. So with that context, let's look back at tussles energy plan and affect you. It says, what are the tariff details? Tesla says quote no standing charge on your bill, a twenty four, seven import rates of eight pence per kilowatt hour for current Tesla vehicle owners and eleven pence per kilowatt hour for non Tesla vehicle owners the lowest flat rate tariff available on the market as of October twenty twenty. So at eight pence per kilowatt hour and no standing charge over the course of the year at four thousand kilowatt hours you're looking at three hundred, twenty pounds or about four, hundred seventeen, which will, of course round. Up to four, hundred, twenty US dollars. So under that example, you're saving more than fifty percent more than four hundred dollars per year or about thirty five dollars a month remember though that's for the average around four thousand kilowatt hours. If you have an electric vehicle charging that, let's say that's double eight thousand kilowatt hours that should get you ten thousand fifteen thousand miles per year from your electric vehicle. Then your annual electricity costs go up to a little over twelve hundred pounds or about sixteen hundred US dollars under Tesla's energy plan that same amount of energy would cost about six hundred and forty pounds or about eight, hundred and thirty, five. US. Saving about seven hundred and sixty five dollars per year or sixty, five dollars per month so that all sounds great. The energy on this plan is all renewable but where the rub comes in as you have to actually by the power wall and in the UK that cost eight thousand pounds, that's a bit over ten thousand dollars. So if you're saving sixty five dollars per month while the payback period on that is about thirteen years. So on the surface, this looks pretty attractive and if you happen to already have power while. In the UK it seems like a no brainer. But unless I'm missing something on the math here, this is a complicated subject to me. It's not clear that this is something that everyone is immediately going to be scrambling to adopt where things get a little bit trickier to understand her on the math on is when we switched over from purchasing electricity actually selling electricity. So in the UK, there are a couple tariffs on that. There's a generation tariff and an export tariff.
Think Twice Before You Eat That Halloween Candy
"The urban legend of Razor Blades in your Halloween candy or poison hidden behind the sweet taste of a snickers bar has been around for decades to this day. Parents are still worn to inspect all candy give into their children to make sure that it's safe for consumption quoted from a mental floss article written by Ethan treks quote it's easy to see how urban legends have taken hold because they're so terrifying after all parents Ben Three hundred, sixty, four days of every year telling their kids not to take candy from strangers precisely because of might be poisoned. Then, give the thumbs up to taking snacks from every house in the neighborhood on Halloween, and that's so true and it also calls to mind the whole idea of like when we re under it, we were told not to talk to strangers online and not to get in cars with strangers, and now we literally use the Internet to summon strangers to get in their cars yet. So. Weird. It's crazy. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five Joel Best, who's a professor of sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware publishing article that reviewed reports and press coverage of candy tampering in the United States between nineteen, Fifty, eight to nineteen eighty-four during the search he found a report as early as nineteen fifty nine where children were falling ill after a California dentist named. William. Shine had distributed four hundred fifty candies laced with laxatives. Two Children Jesus thirty of these children were actually affected by candy tampering and he was later charged with outrage of public decency and quote unlawful dispensing of drugs for a dentist. A dentist, a nine, hundred, sixty, four in New York a forty, seven year. Old Woman named. Helen feel was. Annoyed by the Halloween custom of handing out candy to children especially to children who she felt deserve to be given free candy for she handed out bags of treats including ant poison and dog biscuits while when she was confronted about her actions she said, she was doing it as a joke and only gave the items kid she felt were too old to be trick or treating. Is later reported that she was admitted to the State Hospital for mental observation. Good. God right. You don't know what their issues and why they're treating, and even if they don't have an issue like who fucking cares don't be so stingy. Yeah. Like would you want them taking part in egging in toilet paper toilet paper people's houses or would you like them going door to door and get some candy? Just let them go home with bags of candy and then do whatever they're going to do at the house. They're not gonNA come back at midnight to your house. They've if you give him dog biscuits. Yeah. It's like you just set yourself up for some mischief right in one thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, Toronto police had discovered razor blades and noodles and Halloween apples. The footage found in the CBC Archives Showed Police Displaying Candy that was supposedly poisoned in nineteen seventy, five year old boy named Kevin Dotson from Detroit died after supposedly eating heroin laced candy diseases. After news media outlets had a field day with telling all parents to dispose of their children's hard earned cash flowing treats. It was later discovered that the parents of the child were trying to hide the true events led to his death apparently the uncle of the boy. had a heroin stash in his home and the little boy had gotten into it and ingested a capsule filled with heroin. The parents sprinkled heroin on the boys Halloween candy after he had died as a cover up to protect the boy's uncle God. But that also kind of reminds me of the the thing that goes around of Lake don't watch out people are putting edibles in your candidate and like no nobody's giving you hundreds of dollars of drug senior kids. In two thousand and Minnesota a forty nine year old man named James Joseph Smith was charged with felony for tampering with candy after a fourteen year old boy was pricked with a needle after biting into a candy bar. Lou. He apparently had put needles into snickers bars and handed them out on Halloween. Night. He was charged with one count of adultery in substance with the intent to cause harm illness or death new four other boys were found to have the needle lace snicker Bar, but the only one boy was harmed. In Two thousand sixteen in Nova Scotia a twelve year old boy was injured when he reached into his candy bag and was cut by a razor blade poking out of a kick cap arc. In two thousand, seventeen multiple reports come out of Ontario Canada where eleven year old girl underwent surgery at U. ship it into recess peanut Butter Cup containing a metal object although it was unclear if this was a result of candy tampering or a manufacturing incident. And other eleven year old boy was also reported to have received a Tutsi roll containing melatonin pill before. Tone of all things so. Yes. So harmless but just go to sleep in two thousand, nineteen in Connecticut thirty seven year old Jason Racks was arrested and held on a two hundred fifty thousand dollar bond after the parents of at least two trick or treaters found razors in their children's candy bags. He was charged with risk of injury to a minor reckless endangerment and interfering with police officer apparently did not go quietly when arrested and he also stated that the razor blades were accidentally spilled into the Cannibal for boxer razors who just happened to have next to it. Yes. Yep Yeah I totally believer like you do a later unrelated incident involved someone handing out THC laced gummy candies in their Halloween trick or treaters. Each of the bags contained colorful gummy cubes each packed with ten milligrams of THC. It was stated that it was unknown if this was intentional or from might have been an unintentional oversight by the person handing out the treats but the packaging was obvious enough that it shouldn't be consumed by children Marcos is probably high end didn't notice it air probably high and just in the bag knows because there's pictures of it and that looks like little gummy little gummy bear bags. Yeah. So again, the joke comes up though that nobody's going to willingly hand over yet. They're edibles. Yeah. At the conclusion of Joel Best Research. So get it only went from nine, hundred, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and a lot of these cases. I, told you about were in the two thousands So, this was his conclusion with his research at the conclusion of Joel Best Research into candy tampering incidents. He concluded that the vast majority of reported about seventy five percent who were either hoaxes conducted by children or their parents or didn't result in serious injury interesting. He also stated that contemporary legends are ways that society expresses anxiety and urban legends like Halloween Sadism could've stemmed from societal grievances like nineteen, eighty, two with the cyanide laced tylenol incident in. CHICAGO? The September eleventh terrorist attacks and subsequent Anthrax scare and of course now with Yeah. which actually plays into what you were saying. Devil's night about the depression and the war and how people just kind of like did what they did on Devil's night as a reprieve or as Cathartic. Occurrence. Yeah. So yeah, and that a lot of these urban legends Kinda just stemmed from people just having so much anxiety about the world in the world's problems. Yeah. Yeah. He has stated quote is it possible that someone maliciously passes out treats with the intent of harming children at random of course but this raises the question why they're usually aren't multiple reports from the same area effectively saying that the urban legend is just that nothing more than a hoax or scary story to tell her on time we're anxieties already

So it election is a season more than his day and this this particular election cycle people are really taking advantage of it across the country we've seen record turnouts and so yes, all of us are are enthralled with it in our busy with an it's an exciting time. To be a voter and as a Democrat is in. I. That's the that's that's the understanding I have of your background in your take. Early voting is a good thing. Correct. Voting a whole is a good thing. I mean, I think fat I, mean Tetris. We became a majority minority state in two thousand, four, sixteen years ago But the the the representation whether it's in Congress with the State House or. At a state level is that reflective of the state's population and that's because Texas not a republican state or democratic state for years Texas has been a nonvoting sick. And as voter participation goes up. In the cycle, you're gonNA start seeing the faces and the backgrounds of those that we lack mirror more of the population of Texas and as as we see that across the country. Yeah. One of the things that we. I know at least a couple of weeks ago was kind of a new story was the governor Abbot kind of restricting where people could I think drop off mail in ballots rate I think it was sort of like Harris County, had the same number as any smaller county in West Texas somewhere. So has that has that improved any he he has made that decision in because of it. It again, it's it's an attempt to create. Chaos is an attempt to make it harder for people to vote. Right. Now the just like while we're on. The Texas Supreme Court just ruled that we can have drive thru voting in Harris County. This was a a contention and and literally just as I was getting on the court just ruled which is really important that if you make voting easier for people if you give people multiple options to vote. UC's turnout go up in this what we've seen in Harris. County. Turnouts going up everywhere around the country including Texas. But especially in Harris County because we Harris County has become a democratic counties of the last election cycle and because of that the leadership that's there. Wants to be inclusive wants to hear the voices of people that live in this county. And made many things easier including having drive thru voting like if you can drive through and do a banking transaction if you can drive through and an order the the best fast food. which we have in Texas because we are. Right. We should be able to vote. And I think that that's important. You know the this cycle I wanNA thank cove nineteen. People were given a task for covert ninety blood tests while they were in their cars. So we can do all of that white. Canton.

"Scientists in every field and sub-field and found that the the scientists most open to psychic phenomenon where quantum physicists at in the seventy some seventy five percents number seventy to seventy five percent. And the folks who are least open to any of this. We're psychologists, and you know, when you think about it psychology or not even open to each other. Let alone other the ideas about the mind from outside the field. It's amazing work in just tremendous field. Where do you see it in the next ten years? Lloyd, what's going to happen with it? Well, I think because there are more and more people being drawn to studying consciousness itself in parapsychology really may end up becoming part of that whole it already is part of that movement. But he may officially become part of that movement at some point. I think that that's where the the so-called breakthroughs are gonna come through. I think we're gonna learn a lot more because people are really interested on about the nature of consciousness, not just how the mind power behavior. Works a psychologist deal with behavior. These folks are trying to figure out what consciousness actually is. And that's where it's gonna come. Let's go to Walter in Graham Washington now. Hi, Walter, good morning. Good morning.

"seventy five percent" Discussed on The How-To Heretic
"Democrats at shoots up. It's like sixty seventy five percent respectively, right. Yeah. So I think you know your your opinion on abortion is not primarily determined by your political affiliation or your religious affiliation. The opposition to abortion, you know, it's hard to to pin down the exact reason, but a lot of it comes down to controlling reproduction. Right. And why do you want to do that? Right? Exactly. I mean, so the ability to control your own reproduction is you know a passport to opera tune ity to gross two to a world that wouldn't be available to you. If you were forced to continuously become pregnant to not have access to birth control to not have access to abortion. It would. It's, it's a ticket to health. Pregnancy is a stressful time for a woman emotionally physically, financially, enter the ability to control that aspect of your life opens up this this whole new world. Interest in controlling that not only pregnancy, but like motherhood costs a fortune? Yes, just so being able to choose whether you have a child or not seems to me to be a great boon for any woman. Yeah, we did. We did a piece. I don't know if you had a chance to listen to Dr a little while ago that we talked about child brides phenomenon in the religious world. And that was a big part of it was, you know, basically having people who are not done being children, make more children, robs them of any opportunity in life, right? They just and so finding a way to prevent child brides which is not the subject of this discussion, but basically a way to liberate people from a cycle where they're just making more people until they are in a position to choose to do that freely is a good thing. Yes, I think I mean, you completely completely hit the nail on the head. I mean, I think it's about and it's not just about that individual person. It's about our society as a whole children are taken care of the children who do exist. The parents have the capacity to to love and provide attention and to provide for their children. They have the ability also to provide for themselves and to be complete people into be to contribute in their own ways to society, to achieve education to get a good job. I mean, all of those things are tied into each other. So it's not just about that individual person who is pregnant, but really, it's it's about our successes, a society, you know, and it's people who have abortions have them for variety of reasons.

This isn't we're not talking about like just a just sort of a a, a whim or whatever. This is something that a lot of women that it's about their health and it's about their wellbeing people. Yes, absolutely. I mean, I think the some people don't wanna believe that abortion is healthcare, but you know, it's on an abortion is on the spectrum of the reproductive-health cycle that that people go through. And so. The two, you cannot, you know, minimize the impact that a pregnancy has on somebody. And so you know, the decision to become pregnant is a big decision, and if it happens and you are not financially physically or emotionally ready to take on tape that on than the best thing that you can do for your own personal health is to choose to not be pregnant because end by making that choice,.
