Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators
"Cara the initiative. First of all to reduce the number of MP's this was a big headline initiative of the five Star Movement. Why was that? Did they have a sincere belief in reducing the the role of government in Italian life or did they just think that you never lose votes by leading up on politicians? Well, the movement five stars as people who do follow Italian politics will know was born essentially as an anti elitist movement from the very onset in fact, it was never. Going to be a party, I told at the very beginnings it's very point was to remove the privilege of the ruling elite and the the the reduce reducing the number of of MP's was seen as part of that historically There is a consideration, the one of the main considerations from the point of view of the movie stars and other parties that have. Box. This referendum is to save on the cost of politics whether the cost is actually relevant enough. The savings are relevant enough to actually make significant difference is to be determined but it's difficult to oppose such measures from the point of view of symbolism writes in the. PD. So the center left Party, the Democrat, party has had to back this referendum eventually partly because we are they are now in a ruling coalition. With the move and five stars and they don't want to be seen at odds with one another because that could put the government risk. But also because nobody wants to be perceived as the party who's protecting the elites ultimately because the cost thing is nonsense isn't it's one billion euros over ten years which in the context of the national budget of a country, the size of Italy is beans it is and that's been remarked a number of times As I said, it's more about the symbolic gesture than anything else in front. One of the a practical consequences that this reduction will have is that a will significantly decrease the amount of representation. So that right now, there is one MP in the Chamber of Deputies. Every. Ninety six, thousand, Italians dutton number will now go up to one each one, hundred, fifty, one, thousand Italians, and think the will be particularly seved at the level of the Senate because the Senate is elected kind of via regional route so that there is different electoral colleges, etc, and set in regions will see the number of their elected representatives go down by or more than half, and that's significant from the point of view of how much. Swayed will have in the chamber. Extremely significant and does appear to be the obvious drawback of this game. Nevertheless, it was very popular among your fellow. Italians with seventy percent voting for why is that? Do you think? Do you think that's an if you think about Europe as a whole? Is that an unusually high number more than usually sick of the people who are running the country? I think one of the reasons why the result was so high as because it was ultimately backed by lot of parties so that the party division line was less dark than it would've been now the situations in which these referendums have been politicized the moving five stars of course voted yes it's electorate voted compactly. Yes. Like almost ninety six percent or something this deal moving five-star electorate voted. For, yes. But the PD also officially backed it and the vast majority of the electorate of the Lega and all the rest of the center right also did. So when you sum up all these different parties that there's less of a political kind of undercurrent to it, other than a win for the moon five stars and a not rocking of the current political establishment because ultimately PD also bacteria. That's the political meaning that you're going to be gleaning out of it. So on the subject of gleaning political meaning from things, these regional elections were held at the same time. What did they tell us? It's very interesting because a lot of people over the last few years have wondered whether Salvini could get back on on his horse. Matteo Salvini. Yeah, no indeed and these regional elections where a very important appointment because it's the first time that Italians do vote after covid right? And there were a number of regions that historically have been left wing regions that were thought. They could go to the center right and that hasn't largely happened the centre-left has held in many of the places where it wanted to hold a apart from a mark wearing fact, the candidate that's now become the governor doesn't come from Salvini Spotty, but from Italy Italia, which is the other far right party but less of a kind of northern secessionist heritage more of the Roman heritage right. What we're seeing across the bode board in these results is that Salvini is losing grip on many things, other challenges from within the center right IRA merging not least Georgia Maloney the leader of Fratelli d'italia. So this other far right party not least. Competition within his own party Ziad. The governor of Benetton very popular in his region because of his management of Cavite has skyrocketed to six to seventy six percent. Results in in the region and so I think we're what we're seeing is that the left wing is holding where it probably didn't even think it would hold this much and that context government despite content not being an elected official of the centre-left has actually given a lot more credibility to the current coalition that I think anybody would have expected doesn't strike you though that this is a a left versus right question on more of a professionals versus populists question because a like a pandemic is about a stern test that any government can face and obviously Italy was one of the first places in Europe to face it on a very large scale. Is it possible that something of this sort has reminded Italian voters that maybe there is something to be said for voting for blandly competent and relatively calm people who are actually capable of doing stuff i. think that's exactly the point partly because the populist narrative, very much centers around narratives around you know migration and other issues that don't really relate necessarily to what many Italians rating about right now, which is administration economic recovery, which is returning to schools on you know relatively less appealing because they are much more ordinary budget still, very, very important concerns and interestingly you mentioned you know that the rise of the. Leader? Many, of the regional leaders. The. Regional governors are now coming onto the national stage and where in the past I think we used to see a lot more mess come into national politics right now we're seeing a lot more of these figures that used to be very much in the background because not many people focused on regional governors. Suddenly they were putting a spotlight because of covid this new whole generation of politicians coming to the full, and we will have to see in the next few years. How many of them will make the jump to national politics?

Trump Counters Testimony Of His CDC Director On Vaccines, Masks
"Smith's these are the most important powerful public health tool we have. And I will continue to appeal for all Americans, all individuals in our country to embrace these face offerings I've said if we did it for six, eight, ten, twelve weeks, we'd bring this pandemic. Under. Control these actually, we have clear scientific evidence they work. And they are best defense I might even go so far as to say that this face fast is more guaranteed to protect me against Cova. Then when I take a co- vaccine because the image in this city may be. Seventy percent. And if I don't get an immune response to vaccines knocking protect me this facemask will. President trump lashed out at Dr Redfield. Testimony telling reporters in the White House press briefing room the top US public health officials misspoke. Think. He made a mistake when he said that it's incorrect information. And I called him. And he didn't tell me that and I think you got the message maybe confused trump also contradicted the CDC director over masks saying vaccine would be much more effective than facial coverings stopping the spread of corona virus his comment came after Dr Redfield estimated a potential corona virus vaccine might only be seventy percent effective at generating an immune response making widespread massacres critical to ending the pandemic during a town hall event Tuesday on ABC hosted by George. Stephanopoulos trump again downplayed the use of masks. People. Think masks are not good and there are a lot of people that as an example, those people I'll tell you who those people are waiters they come over and they serve you and I have a mask and I saw the other day where they were serving me and they're playing with a mask I'm not blaming that just what happens they're playing with a mask and so the mask is over and they're. Touching it and Touching the plate that can't be good.
First Berlin Production Equipment, New Largest Supercharger Location, Daimler Emissions
"Our here, and today we have a super charger network update, which is nice. Little throwback for those of you that have listened to the podcast for a long time I used to do those every day at the start of the podcast. We also have some news on Berlin paint a small little updates slash rumor. I would call it on Battery Day and the news on Daimler Nikola Motor as. Well. Tesla stock with another really strong day to day even though it was relatively quiet news wise finishing up seven point two percent to four hundred and forty nine dollars seventy six sense that compared to the Nasdaq up one point two percent we'll start off with these super charger news. This is coming from Brian Mac se on twitter, who is a long-time listener and I believe Patriot supporter of. The podcast who happen to come across a super charger network location under construction near Firebaugh California. As far as I can tell, this location had not yet been noticed. So upon Brian tweeting these out Tesla Motors Club Forum members did some digging on this and they were actually able to find that the permit for the site as well as planning documents for sort of a conglomerate travel center at. This location those documents disclosed that Tessa. We'll have fifty six spots for Tesla charging at this travel center. Assuming each of those spaces has a super charger associated with it. fifty-six chargers would put this as the largest superchargers location in North America and possibly in the world surpassing cattleman city in the United States at forty chargers and believe in China, there are a couple locations that have fifty chargers. So. Pretty exciting this location is between San Francisco and La driven miles. It's about two hundred and thirty miles from La and about one hundred and fifty from San Francisco. It's not clear if these will be all version three superchargers but I'd have to imagine that they would be and as far as other features go. It looks like about two thirds of them thirty eight of the fifty six. will be pull through hopefully accommodating the use of a trailer and making things a bit easier for the cyber truck and potentially also accommodating the semi of course, cincy unveil of the semi. We haven't heard much more about Tesla's mega charger plans. So hopefully, we get a bit of an update on that during battery debt. Right next today is an update on Gigabytes Lynn gigafactory underscore four on twitter. Has Been following. The gigafactory development closely looks like some equipment has started to arrive, and some of that equipment carries branding for Geico Tikey Shah? which is a paintshop solutions provider based in Milan Italy. There's also some signing there that is co branded between that company and desolate GEICO take show describes their approach by saying quote innovation is our weapon of choice were constantly increasing the technological possibilities in. Order to meet the needs of the most demanding customers in a highly competitive sector and quote they also seem to be heavily focused on sustainability and they're their paintshop operations. They have a project called the party's project, and they say quote with the Party's project launched in two thousand, five Geico Kotecki show was the world's first company to offer zero environmental impact paintshop reducing consumption by seventy percent and. So. Without really knowing much more about the company does he pretty good fit for Tesla we know Tesla has pretty big aspirations with the shop and gigabyte Lin Yuan talked about it many times and even setting Matt aside, it's good to start to see some production equipment on the grounds of Giga Berlian and though I haven't seen it yet. Maybe this gives us another milestone to compare the progress with Giga Shanghai from what I can. Tell, it looks like paintshop equipment started being put in place at Giga. Shanghai. In early to mid August of two thousand, nineteen with production of course, then starting about four months later. So if that's the case, if Berlin falls a similar time line that could potentially project out to start production and January probably best to keep expectations for later than that but I do think it's helpful to keep an eye on how those timelines compare all Right next up today is something that could end up being completely nothing but I thought it was at least interesting enough to share earlier today Fred Lammert over at electric tweeted out a couple of images of him holding a pretty significantly sized battery cell and Fred Ask if anyone has seen this battery cell before or you have some information about them, please reach out to him. A says also by the way, this new cell May. Or may not have been made by Tesla I don't really have much speculation to add this. A couple of people on twitter were saying that it does look like a tablets design which we've talked about and past episodes. But really just pointing out to say could be something to keep an eye out for the next couple of days if electric is able to you dig up a little bit more information on whatever this ends up being. Last couple of pieces of news here. Today I on Daimler Daimler has reached a settlement with the US government to pay one and a half billion dollars and settlements and penalties to the US and California State to resolve allegations of Daimler using emissions test cheating software to conceal the actual emissions from vehicles even with the settlement, and despite the fact that engineers at the EPA found software designed to cheat the emissions tests. Damore denies wrongdoing saying quote as stated in the consent degrees the. Class Action Settlement the company denies the authorities allegations as well as the class action plaintiffs claims and does not admit any liability to the United States. California plaintiffs or otherwise and quote. So I don't know kind of disappointing to see a settlement of that nature that doesn't require the admission of fault with such seemingly strong evidence against Daimler right lasting today is a quick update on Nikola Motors. It sounds like from the comments yesterday that most of you preferred that I don't do significantly. Deep dive on this budget stick to the high level updates, which I'm totally fine with if Trevor Milton wanted to come back on the PODCAST, I would probably do that. Otherwise, we'll stick with these updates anyway today the Wall Street Journal and other outlets are reporting that the Justice Department has started to also investigate Nikola Motors due to the allegations that they had misled investors by making exaggerated claims about their technology I know that sounds similar to
Japan set for new prime minister after ruling party vote
"By the end of today, could Japan have a new prime minister? The departure of Shinzo Abe's due to ill health triggered a rapid and intense race within the country's ruling Liberal. Democratic Party today's voters among three contenders with a front runner Mr Abbas advisor Your Shahida suge he promises to maintain JAPA- Japan's current economic policies what I'm delighted to say our Tokyo Bureau chief know. Wilson. Joins me now good afternoon. Aloe Vera. What is the latest? Well the election is happening as we speak the members of the L. D. The parliamentary members are in a hotel in Tokyo casting their votes. I don't think it's going to take that long actually, and I expect the results to come out quite soon and you're right Mr Sugar is. Massively the favourite he's already secured seventy percent of the vote within the party the parliamentary multi, the votes he'll probably get most of those as well. So it really is sort of a formality, this election and what will happen next is on Wednesday the Diet will come into session and he will be. Made Prime Minister officially. What is it about your Shahida suge which seems to have guaranteed to convincing win for him. Well I think number one is he's ver- famously very loyal to Shinzo, Arbor, and his his platform is basically all just do more of the same. So he's not putting up any kind of different policies. It's really hard to cigarette paper between these two he's he's openly said he will continue the economic policy, the diplomatic policy, and that seems to be quite welcome within the party within the parliamentary party. Certainly. Now. The other two candidates. Very strong candidates, Mr Kishida, and and also Mr issued burner issues. We've talked about him quite often he's been. A strong critic of Shinto Arbor but those they can't win today almost impossible I. You know less this summer unbelievable event. But they're looking to next year I mean even though Mr Suge will win today, he can really only see out Shinzo Abe's term which would have finished next September, this term as president of the Party and the the term finish is September twenty twenty one when they will have to be another election. So the big discussion now is does Mr Suge immediately have a general election to. Cement his position. So I think that will be the big discussion next week. What is the popularity of him among Japanese citizens I e descriptions of him in the press did not paint him as a particularly pleasant. A warm character that many people would be inspired by in fact, the absolute opposite but it's only in the last couple of weeks at a twinkle in his eye appeared. Carefully contrived twinkle in his eye I mean he's been in front of the press twice a day every day for nearly eight years because he's been the spokesperson for Shinzo, Abe's government. So the press knows him very very well, I think his public persona is is not so clear people now know he's the son of a strawberry farm he's not from one of. These famous political families like Shinzo Bay Familia, Kishida, one of his rivals he's he's worked his way up, which is being a little bit of involuntary cheese talked about I'm a regular person. If I can become prime minister anyone can and they've tried to craft a bit of a warm personality saying he's got a sweet tooth. We've had a few friends wheeled out. From his his hometown, he comes from Accu in the north of Japan from a Small Town Newshour but I have to say the people they've they've brought out have rather confirmed that he was a pretty quiet nondescript character as a youth. You didn't really do much more than than than fish for trout and played baseball. He wasn't really marked out for political success. Oh I wouldn't say he's he's extremely charismatic and he himself admits he doesn't have much diplomatic experience. So that will be interesting because obviously one of the big relationships that Japan has its regional neighbors and with the US and I, I'm trying to imagine Yoshida and Donald Trump. That could be an interesting meeting. I think Mr Saga the the Polish that some of his. Colleagues, have and I I. HE admits that will be a new experience for him. I mean he indeed, I mean he's already said that if he does indeed secure the job, he will need the help of Shinzo rb when dealing with foreign policy as you say, it's going to be a different kind of. For in front facing world that the Japan will be pro presenting to following the departure Shinzo. but how much is there a real feeling that will be in the background despite his departure? I. Don't think he'll be in the background in any sensitive as a puppeteer, but I think the aims of his government will be pursued in one thing that's very interesting about sugar is he's not really an ideologue Shinzo had some quite. He had ideological positions are very well known. You know these nationalist positions very concerned to to reformulate the constitution Japan's pacifist constitution. He wanted to change that. Now really saga is not one go on about nationalism in any shape or form he's very pragmatic and everyone says the same thing he doesn't have a lot of charm sorry to say but that that's the the verdict on. Him when he goes into her and he's not dominating the room radiating charisma he looks at the small print and he's he's not really one for schmoozing but he wants to get things done and that's where he will differ from Shinzo obey. But I don't think he'll be grandstanding on the diplomatic
Xbox Series X and S Prices Revealed
"What do we? It has been for xbox. They finally announced the xbox series s we finally finally finally know the release date in price for both consoles. November tenth is on the next generation of xbox kicks off series x five hundred dollars series as three hundred dollars. A full two, hundred dollars cheaper digital only actually doesn't seem like it's that much less powerful It's basically. into. Four correct me if I'm wrong, it's not four K.. It's fourteen forty. The thrill leaning into the series s that's correct gets, but it can scale to four K. on your four K. TV and it plays media in four. K.. Wow, not video games. So are you surprised at the the two hundred dollar price difference between these two councils it makes the series s really really impressive and tempting I don't think it was something that that many sorta really hard core really engaged gamers like that super interested in this all the price in the specs I've seen a lot of people going to be like well, maybe. Yes. During the times, it's it's well suited to to kind of. Navigate for both kind of Gamers is a needs. If you want the upscale absolutely highest price edition, sure that that's an option. But at the same time, if you're on a little bit more of a budget seem super smart especially just enough in this landscape with twenty twenty it's kind of interesting route a because we know that you know most people don't have a four K. television they probably won't for A. While, and this will make you games look really good on your current television It's a next GEN system for thirty bucks I mean I think that's a really cool a really cool competitive move to make especially now that they have a subscription service to back it up and just a few other things you know xbox has going for it right now, what they don't have is a bunch of exclusive watch games. Held out this long, i. mean it makes sense obviously in the game of chicken but this does seem like one of its greatest selling points semi pun intended. So it's It's interesting that the sticking them less long and obviously due to a leak initially before they owned the news themselves but it's a like mixed. It's a huge differentiator and definitely makes the the deal between the two of them the most significant thing for Microsoft. The value proposition, right? Yeah. The five hundred dollar version two is still like that's kind of what we expected this for some reason it's is I think it's really smart, not the delay but that they kind of. are talking about they talked about the s price at almost the same time because like that's all people were talking about like we would be talking about the PS five versus the xbox price right now as soon as bs five comes out, but there's always gonna be this this three, hundred dollar one and their people don't have to get the of the full one. It's just it's just a really interesting move I can't think of a precedent for at. A financing option to right. So yeah. That's just like another consumer friendly option that is clearly the a big corner cornerstone point for their entire next-gen lineup. Yeah we should definitely talk about that. That's xbox all access which allows you to get in on next generation xbox for as little as twenty five dollars a month for twenty four months you that over two years and that also gets you. Game Pass ultimate to get more than one hundred access to more than one hundred games plus every mega first party game day. One you get. So it's actually it. It seems to be like a staggering deal especially if what if? Halo infinite had been there at lunch twenty, five dollars for twenty five dollars. You got the new xbox and Halo Infinite Right on day one, it's unbelievable. Clearly, there's GonNa be some of those games that you don't care about including every first party game and including EA Games. Now, like that's basically like a price cut like you can imagine that console is sixty dollars even cheaper than the PS five is because you don't have to pay sixty dollars to get a little infant. Yeah the price of that subscription. It's it's amazing. It's really really cool I. Want I want to circle back on really underscores something that Sam said about the xbox series S. The thing that impresses me so much that I think is so smart. That it really did focus in on resolution like if you have a four K. TV like we opie seriously consider the series. But if you don't, if you're either plugging that thing into a monitor or you still have to be like the fact that the series s is pretty compromise free and that really that extra power is only being used to push you know these extra forecast pixels and law resolutions. The Games will just as good. I think that was very very clever and very savvy and consumer-friendly Gosh I don't have enough positive things to say about like that being the point of differentiation between these two consoles and like like I still don't actually have a four K. TV every year every every Christmas. This is the year but then it's like well, then there's then there's other new tech and there's HCR government maybe I'll just wait one more year and so like I'm still chugging away ten eighteen. And You know. So it's like I'm one of US consumers like Sino. I've seen some people wondering like well. It's like. Well, you know we exist for a wide variety of reasons I think it's like seventy percent of people that have consoles don't have a four. K. TV. As you say often use a projector and people find that confounding. Confounding because it's not as great resolution like you can still get a four K. projector and I do and like you know I I have really good setup, but ultimately, it's totally lighting based. So if you're in a bright living room, kind of does not make for a great experience, but you can have a huge. Screen the biggest screen out of any. Huge. Fun. T to do most of your gaming on a projector. That's how you do pre pandemic yeah. Okay Now more committed to a TV. TV. Okay. So a five, hundred, x, three, hundred
What Patients Are Saying About Antipsychotic
"In the early nineteen nineties about half of US patients with bipolar disorder took lithium now, it's closer to fifteen percent and the use of antipsychotic says more than doubled to fill that gap. A new survey reveals what patients think about these newcomers. This was an online survey of two hundred US adults who by their own report were diagnosed with bipolar one disorder and had taken an antipsychotic within the past year. Era Paul was the most common followed by Qu- Pina Spirit Own Olympian and Larizza on there are others that fell off after that. Overall people were satisfied with the efficacy but dissatisfied with the tolerability ninety, eight percent had at least one side effect on the NS psychotic and most of the side effects were not trivial. Ninety two percent felt the side effects had a negative effect on their relationships. Patients were embarrassed by the side effects. Particularly, anxiety weight gain followed by involuntary spasms or movements and trouble concentrating. I'm reminded here of Dr Magas Warning in June twenty nineteen issue on side effects that patients are not likely to put up with a side effect that they find socially embarrassing. The side effects that bothered people the most worrying Zaidi with gain and feeling like a Zombie or having no emotions And the rates of these three burdensome effects were large in the seventy percent range. ANTIPSYCHOTIC side effects carried over into all areas of life family, romance friendships, and work. Thirty to fifty percent felt that the anti psychotics impact their job sixty to seventy percent felt that the bipolar symptoms impacted their job. So from the patient's point of view, the side effects are a little better, but almost as bad as the disorder itself in the workplace. The bottom line while the PDR can tell us what side effects to expect surveys like this. Tell us just how damaging those side effects are. And the numbers here are much higher than what we see in the PDR. What's unclear is whether lithium or the Anti convulsants would raise the same level of complaint in

How To Consistently Reach Your Sales Quota
"What's up? Everybody Needs Kevin Daisy. So we are fairly new at sales as far as the station is concerned having professional. salespeople. We're about, I guess a year and a half into it I. It was Eric and I always sell in the business. then. We had a Glenn who came on about. Not, even a year and a half ago. Now, if our sales professional and we're looking to hire more so we're kind of quickly scale on this up. But we have a very basic system as far as what we're looking for. What the monthly quota is. An and they should be bringing in and it is super basic and as for me, it still works I know we might get more sophisticated as we grow in the teams grow and we have managers and things like that. But right now it's it's super basic. So interesting lay it out for you. and you can see how all this may be different than your model or if you don't have a model because you're disowned for yourself. something you can think about doing. SARS is very. Is. Five thousand dollars a month. In monthly reoccurring revenue. That's the theme here monthly reoccurring revenue five grand every month, not five gram once or twice or ten times, and then Kinda sit back. Five men every month. That's all we care about. We want those results. If you do the math on that, if you're GONNA do five grandmothers salesperson. Times twelve that sixty thousand dollars of monthly reoccurring revenue. So that means a month thirteen. We've collected sixty grand. From the clients that you've brought in as a salesperson here. At Mont Thirteen but take that that book of business. Times another twelve and that seven hundred, twenty, thousand dollars. So a very successful salesperson in their first year should be over half a million at least. And that's what looking at. That's the kind of success we need to grow this business. Now we do have ramp up period. said. You come on with us for as a salesperson which we're hiring right now as recording this for sales. There's a ramp up period so The first few months. Washington. The first four months or not one hundred percent of that. So we actually sort out with about a two week training period. A month is twenty, five percent of five grand, which is twelve fifty. Then he gets to fifty percent seventy percent and then the fourth full month. After a two week. Period you're expected to bring in five thousand in monthly recurring revenue. So right now, this is a very basic system and it works. We don't care about how many phone calls you made. We don't care about how emails you sent. I don't care if you want to network in meetings or not doesn't matter to me. It's. Can You bring in five thousand a month in New York consistently. And again, this reoccurring. So this is contacted. Using on twelve month. So, as predictable cash flow that we can count on for at least next year. So. That's really how we're building up our sales and growing the company. In if I can just hire another person and they can achieve that. Five thousand per month each. Then, we're in really good spot and we're growing very quickly. So. That's what we're trying to do again right now is very basic, but it works for us. We've had other people tell us different things and don't do like do it like this. Do like that. But for us is working out, well, we also pay salespeople a salary plus the commission net. And we do the life for that the life of the account. So. We've got a pretty good system going also the salespeople here they're not account managers. So they can build a book business and then keep building it not managing. There's accounts. Our operations team which according to the episode on that but. Operations seems takes over that relationship and the responsibility. So the salesperson continued yourself. Now, they can touch base and and reach out of the client of course, but it's not really the responsibility so. They Cabal. You know what you're tracking with sales was important for us the results, how much can you bring in per month and for us the minimum is five grand per month. And that's going to set us up for success. We were
Lockdown in Honolulu
"Don Wallace is on the line from Honolulu. He tells US authorities they're put in a new set of restrictions because of a recent surge in Cova cases on Oahu justice they were hoping they could start reopening. It's crucial tourism industry. Don's a contributing editor at Honolulu magazine and he's updated us on Hawaii tourism in the past and done you're you're out there about twenty five, hundred miles away from anywhere else in the middle of the Pacific. Hawaii depends so much on tourism and I would imagine it's been quite a stressful time with the coronavirus continuing to spread. What's it like in Hawaii right now. Well the whiny started out as soon as thirty thousand tourists stopped coming way did very well on the virus were the lowest in the nation for states. Now we've had a spike starting at the fourth of July and August it began to get up to two hundred cases a day. I know that doesn't sound like much but. you don't have that many hospital facilities. That, we had to do a banning perks, beaches hiking trails and gatherings over ten So is the response and the impact of the corona virus different from different islands. who gets most of it in fact, it's almost miniscule on now big island, the ninety MILICI, those islands, the people can pretty much go cleese they. You wear masks you're allowed to fly into a walk who without according to you. But people who can't find their without of quarantine. What about people in the tourism industry? Are they impatient or they realizing that haste makes waste when it comes to getting over the so they can start making money again. It's a very interesting case people very concerned. There's no voice irresponsibly pushing for white opener light opening deal like Texas, did for instance. And I think that's because the workers sixty seventy percent of the are. No a minimum wage workers they don't have good health plans. They carry the burden of this, and the other part is the Theresa Stop Coming. Can Americans from the mainland fly into Hawaiian vacation if they want to yeah, you can come We get about three thousand a day. And I think the hitch there is you do a fourteen day quarantine and you check into your hotel and you can't leave your hotel room. The impact on tourism would be you're probably wondering around the beaches thinking this is like it was back in the old days. You're very much in nineteen threes, Hawaii. Waikiki is a ghost town. That's not entirely a bad thing We think tasteful Hawaii empty beaches, very clean water clean here you feel like being caress be hanging out with the beach boys. Old School Beach Boys. And if you do go out to dinner, for instance, you may have the restaurant to yourself just one or two people. Magic. So That's interesting. I mean, of course the you've lost the revenue, but you've regained your beaches as far as the locals go there was something in the news and I think you wrote about it about gun toting extremists who are wearing Hawaii shirts. It doesn't seem like the Aloha spirit to me what's Really thought it. Up in the news, there's one of these Gun Group extremists start showing up at the black lives, matter protests and other places. Instead of what they weren't Loescher it's Kinda create a sort of scary dissidence. Then people here reacted really strongly. Ensured is about Aloha Aloha is welcoming. It's inclusive. And it's actually something. I wrote an article about how Hawaiian shirts fight extremism. Hungary magazines. It's a love story about two sisters from Portland. Hawaii's eighteen twenty. Married South Asian immigrants helped create yellow her shirt industry. It's a beautiful beautiful story and it's that Louis Spirit that sort of loved that easygoing nece that caring for others. What a what a dissonance by these? What do they call? Boo Goo Boo Voice Blue Boys. Okay. Well I hope you have to handle and then we can read about that in your article and then very quickly what's open now if you are in Hawaii, museums, clubs, restaurants what's The dishes and Him after limited reopening had to close again. We hooked to get them back up in a couple of weeks neither good their little outdoor cafes and restaurants they've shifted to putting cafe tables out on the sidewalks and even the streets in some cases. So Madonna. Of Lua. And you know, thankfully, why is a very outdoor culture? So eating outdoors is. No big concession. So that lends itself to social distancing done. It's so great to have you on. We'll talk again soon I hope everything goes well with Hawaii and tourism, and your work there done Wallace's a contributing editor at Honolulu magazine.

Finally, Airlines are Dropping Change Fees
"Wars daily on this September fourth. Happy Friday friends and happy. Labor. Day. Weekend. Labor, day, marks the end of summer for many of us an occasion for one last Hurrah barbecues pool parties in one last long weekend vacation perhaps this year well, most of us are staying home and the airlines have absolutely nothing to celebrate. Passenger levels are down seventy percent from a year ago, according to figures from the Transportation Security Administration looking financial disaster in the face, the airlines are trying to woo travelers back given the safety concerns that's proving difficult. So on Monday, United Airline CEO Scott Kirby took a startling and many would say welcome step here he is in a video announcement. Permanently getting rid of change vs on standard economy and premium tickets for travel within the US. Changes inevitable these days, but it's how we respond to change. That matters most. We hear from customers about where we can improve getting rid of this feat is often offered West and for good reason until now it could set you back two hundred to five hundred dollars to change a flight on one of the Big Three Airlines, United Delta or American sometimes that fee was more than the cost the original ticket simply the existence of that fee put all three airlines at a competitive disadvantage. To Southwest Airlines, which proudly boasts that it has never charge change fees or baggage fees, either which is another story well, now, non of the other airlines will either at least for domestic flights about twenty four hours after Kirby went public. American Airlines and Delta followed suit and canceled their domestic change fees as the Wall Street reports American went even further canceling their change fees for international flights to Canada Mexico, and the. Caribbean. Now, the question is, what will it cost them? US carriers earned close to three billion dollars from changing cancellation fees in two thousand, nineteen according to the US Transportation Department. All three major airlines in hefty amounts of money. American was I with more than eight, hundred, million dollars coming from vs Delta was close behind united took in more than six hundred, million dollars one might imagine that it could be hard for. The airlines to give up these fees after all about fifteen percent of their revenues come from the fact did travelers changed their minds united is burning through about forty million dollars a day and could cut up to thirty six thousand jobs by October first that according to CNBC. So you might think that every possible penny counts but if no one traveling anyway, well, it's

Advancing Life Quality with Objective Research and Action with Jenna LeComte - Hinely
"Welcome back to the PODCAST. Privilege of hosting Dr on account timely she's the CEO of Hark Inc. Heart stands for health assessment and research for communities. She obtained her PhD at Portland State University in the field of applied psychology with an expertise in occupational health psychology, and she strives to keep workers happy healthy and productive. The idea of data and evaluation is something that we all tend to cringe when we hear. But today we're going to dive into why it's actually good and how it. Could really appropriately help the health of communities when we think about the topics of a social determinants of health and how he each WanNa Tackle B.'s whether you be a provider organization a Public Health Organization or just an entrepreneur trying to add value to the ecosystem. Today's conversations really gonNA dive into how we can take a look at data on evaluations as a positive thing Dr Lee count timely has served on the board of many nonprofits including John Senior Center. Health and HIV aging research project among others her passion for. The healthcare ecosystem and giving I really inspiring and I think you'll enjoy today's conversation. So Jenna privilege to have you with us today. Thank you for having me. So what are I missing your intro that maybe you want to share with the listeners? Pretty, comprehensive. So Hark is a nonprofit in addition to sort of serving on their boards of nonprofits. They also route one and that I think that they kadhamy that seeing it from both sides has been really important. So we're really a nonprofit that there's other nonprofits and other health and Human Services Agencies, which is a very rewarding thing to do love that. Now that's key. So what is it? That got you interested in in healthcare ecosystem to begin with? Well, I'd say we are more focused on health not health care health care is only a small piece of your overall health. The county health rankings models shows that clinical care only counts for about twenty percent of ultimate health. Outcomes the length of your life and the quality of your life. The rest is all about those social and economic factors, the physical environment, your health behaviors. So I typically think of myself as in the health sector, not the healthcare because it's so much broader, but it's a good distinction. Yeah. Yeah and I got into through research I started doing research when I was nineteen and I, just loved it. It's so fun to find the systematic way to find answers to your questions, but I always wanted to do meaningful research. So not which candy flavored do you like best but research that actually helps people. So I started off studying doing research in gender discrimination and from. There I got into occupational health psychology. So that's the how to keep workers happy healthy and productive. So that's what I studied in Grad School and my thesis and my dissertation were both on the topic of work life balance and its impact on your physical and mental health, and so after that, I was looking for a job and I found the job director of research at initially I was director of research for about three years and I became CEO about four years ago, and it was really exciting to me like I could not have crafted a better job because it's so fun to do. We have so many different clients and to do research one day on. A fall prevention programs for seniors and the next day on a literacy program for kids. It's so diverse that we really get this wonderful full circle picture of what is health and our community I love that and I could hear the passion in your voice when you when you talk about the different topics and I'm glad that at the beginning of our discussion and you prefaced it with, Hey, you know health health is big thing. It's not just the point of care that we're so used to focusing on and so as you've conducted the work that you do what's been an inside or an outcome that you've helped your your customers achieve that's different. Hard is really Where data geeks all of us and we're really designed to be that sort of outsourced, the many small nonprofits want to be evidence based, but they can't afford to have a researcher on staff fulltime. So that's where we come in to customize on. So that's how we have the this diversity of clients and honestly I'm not doing anything that changes lives. My clients are using the data that we give them to change lives, which is magical and so happy to be a part of. that. Is Sort of a negative connotation but I, it's it's accurate. In a positive way. Yeah. Yeah. So one of the things we do actually what was launched for us, we do this huge community health survey of the Coachella Valley in Southern, California and we provide that data back to the community at no charge so he can use it and I think what's most Encouraging and exciting is how some people have used it to change lives, and one of my favorite examples is desert. AIDS project is a federally Qualified Health Center, an FQHC here in the desert, and this really illustrates that we do this survey, every three years, and the first time. There was no questions about HIV and delegates projects. Said I think we need to. Add One. So at the next survey, we added a question whether an adult had ever been tested for HIV just ever in your entire life and we found out that almost seventy percent of adults in our region had never been tested for HIV, and they didn't know their status and that's terrifying given that we have an HIV prevalence that's twice the national average. So based on that. Desert AIDS project launched get tested Catella Valley, which was this three year public health campaign. It was five million dollars there was so many partners working together to get everybody tested, and for those who tested positive connecting them to care. So they had US do some research on wire people getting tested and wires some others not, and one of the things that we found was super important. We talked to you providers we talked to people who had been tested for HIV and said. Why did you get tested and one of the top to answer was my doctor offered it we talked people who'd never been tested and said, why haven't you been tested and one of the top two answers was my doctor never offered it so it became clear that physician input is really important to a really large component of the campaign focused on provider education rather than patient education I mean, it's always great if your patients are activated engaged in asking for an HIV test. But it's most important that the provider themselves is they're offering HIV test.
Did ETFs Pass the 2020 Market Collapse Stress Test
"There's a paper issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston titled The shift from Active to passive investing potential risks to financial stability. They right to the extent that passive investing is pushing up the prices of index constituents. Two types of potential repercussions for financial stability might arise. I in theory, rising prices can lead to more index investing and the resulting index bubble eventually could burst. But they point out that this might not be the entire market but could be just elements in the market some stocks getting pushed up. While others might have their prices fall because they're not necessarily included in the index. Investors were selling active mutual funds and going in to index funds to the overall market valuation wasn't necessarily going higher. The point out that some stocks will because they are part of that basket that an ETF holds might be more liquid whereas other names are going to be less liquid. So you have different things going on that makes it challenging to figure out whether there is or was an indexing bubble Needed is a stress test. We needed people rushing to get out of ATS and other assets and to see how they hold up. One of the concerns regarding ETF, there would be a flash crash which has occurred in the past where the price of an ETF has fallen dramatically more so than the price of its underlying holdings. And this can occur when there are trading halts in either the ETF or the underlying holdings. These trading halt or circuit breakers that are implemented if the price of security ETF falls below some threshold. And they're there to suppress volatility. Do allow traders time to catch their breaths or trading systems time to recalibrate to timeout. The stress has is very, very important because ETF's are so much bigger than they were. Six trillion dollars in assets in the ETF sector that's up seven fold from two, thousand seven. So. What happened during late February and March as market sold off dramatically. Well I there was no flash crash trading volume, definitely spite. I shares shared some data for the week of February twenty. Fourth Two thousand twenty volatility spikes so the vix, the C. B. O. E. volatility index, it reached forty nine. The highest since February twenty eighteen. and. The S&P five hundred had its largest weekly decline since the two thousand eight global financial crisis. Exchange traded products that week comprise thirty, eight percent of market trading. Whereas back in twenty nineteen, they accounted on average for twenty seven percent. So there was much more trading in ats. Exchange. For the products which include ATS. Traded a record one point, four, trillion dollars volume from February twenty, four, th through February twenty, eighth, two, hundred and seventy percent greater than its average daily trading volume from the prior month. And then that trading was fairly efficient. So the bid ask spreads what investors were buying ETF for or selling e Utah. That price difference was generally line with historical averages in addition, most of the trading volume was trading in the secondary market. Investors trading the ATS with each other, rather than trading facilitated by authorized participants who interact directly with ETF sponsored in creating and redeeming shares. The volume of secondary market trading in exchange traded products was fourteen to one relative to primary activity of this trading with authorized participants. What that means is that ETF in some ways acted as shock absorber when investors were trying to get out even if the underlying securities might have been less liquid by selling ETF's taking much of that trading volume that put less pressure on perhaps some of those less liquid securities. It seemed to function. If we look at what happened during the this market twenty, twenty turmoil compared to the flash crash of two thousand, ten volatility was actually much higher during the march twenty, twenty turmoil. The minimum and maximum levels during a given day for the various indices was higher during March twenty twenty then back in the flash crash twenty ten. And yet the markets seem to function generally speaking at least for equity ETF's. Even. Michael. Berry in March twenty twenty seemed to admit this. He told Bloomberg I have a significant bearish market bat that is working out for now. A global pandemic is absolutely potential trigger for the unwinding of the passive investing bubble. But despite volatility Berry said, he hadn't noticed any signs of dysfunction in the markets that was making it harder for him, the trade or exploit investment opportunities. Equity ETF seems to have passed that stress test it worked even though the volume of trading was so much higher. The number of ATS was so much higher. There were some challenges on the bond side. The vanguard total bond market ETF. B, n De on March Twelfth, it's closing price was six point two percent less than its net asset value per share. The price was less than the supposed value of the underlying holdings on a per share basis. During the prior thirteen years that have had a point one, seven percent premium of the closing price to envy now at six point, two percent discount. Rich powers WHO'S HEAD OF ETF product management at Vanguard said this wasn't unusual. Market prices for Egypt's can move more rapidly than the net asset value that is part of the price discovery process. He's saying that's normal.
