Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?

"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

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?

"Mccafe's seventy, six percent on the perimeter and week one lock at twenty, six percent and you're right. Last season we saw that now look, let's say metcalf was out for whatever reason. Then you might see them get a little more creative sometimes, you would see go more gonNA slot but that's not the case metcalf is very much a threat in the perimeter we know that so I fully expect him to travel obviously, there are similar size at least Gilmore's the biggest bigger corner for the saints or the Patriots and Jonathan Jones should be unlock it in the slot. Remember. The Patriots Defense Lhasa Pieces in the off season certainly Gilmore wasn't wasn't as normal dominance in week one but he was elite last year and so was his past offense fewest fantasy points to perimeter receivers second few overall two receivers, and again that's where Amac aligns is on the outside by the way.

The NCAA decides Nov. 25 will be the start date for college basketball's season

"Twenty fifth is the intended start date for college basketball season and the oversight committees. As I previously reported had suggested that this go to November twenty first and that was the formal recommendation sent to the D. One council last Friday five days ago however. I was told and I want to be clear in how I share this information I talked to Dan Gavitt on the record earlier today and I have a story Cuny that you can read with a lot of stuff about why we're here and what's next and etcetera etcetera. But what about to share with you? I never discussed with Dan Gavin any kind of regard this is just my info gathering and what I think happened here today. So as I understand it, Dan Gavitt was one of a few important people that was really adamant about having the season start on November twenty fifth, and then the oversight committee acids power to do look at everything considered all the MTV's the multi team events and said, you know what with so many of. These starting on November twenty third in a couple actually starting scheduled starting November twenty. First we think we best to bump up the season by about four days. Get it done on November twenty first and just use that runway toward the rest of the rest Thanksgiving week including Maui invitational etc. wouldn't you know GP The D. One council met today in the D. One council for those familiar one representative from all thirty two leagues that have Division One men's and women's basketball. And I don't know why it got to this point specifically but we are at November twenty fifth I mean I know one reason Gavin told me on the record November twenty fifth they estimate seventy, six percent of campuses. We'll have all of their entire student bodies off campus on November twenty five as opposed to twenty and twenty one is forty three percent and making these decisions for health and safety reasons is the first and foremost reason. For doing this also significant to meet November twenty one st never made sense at all because that's a Saturday we will have college football and we will be leading to an NFL Sunday you have Wednesday. Now November twenty five, we can start then you have day to yourself, there will be no NFL, there will be no college football there will be no MBA there will be no nhl there will be no pro baseball, the only major American. Sport, that will be played on Wednesday. November twenty fifth season will be college basketball and that in of itself I think is a positive up shoot. So

Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections

"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from.

Algae Oil for Cooking?

"McCaffrey. So D-, what's the topic for this week? The topic for this week is. Culinary algae oil what is it and is it a good oil to cook with? Wow that's a new one. Now G oil. Yeah. I actually. This was somewhat new to me as well. I heard about it from a client as I often hear about new things. end. So piqued my interest because of course, I know about algae oil supplements for like a basically a plant source of the omega three fatty acids that we typically find in fish oil. And these are very important types of fatty acids for our brain and our overall health, and so I was thinking, okay. I know about that type of algae oil. But how do you? How could you have an algae oil that you could cook with because you would never want to cook with algae oil that has these very fragile Omega three fats in it because they would just burn up and turn around. Yeah. So I had to really kind of look around and and see what this algae culinary is all about. So there's a company called thrive and that's the name of the brand of the oil. It's called thrive algae culinary oil. And it's owned by a company in in the Netherlands. And so it they don't get their algae from the ocean like like the companies that make algae oil supplements do that type of algae is like marine phytoplankton type of algae, very high in Omega three fatty acids. This algae oil actually comes from an algae that grows on the bark of a chestnut tree in Germany one that's where they originally got their algae from. Now, they make it in these big. like. Steel that's very similar to making your. Yes and in fact, I believe I read somewhere that the company actually is housed in an old PABST blue ribbon factory, and they actually used the same fermenting bats. so they take this algae from a chestnut tree in Germany that's the original source of it. But now what they do is they can grow it now in there that and so they have sort of like a sustainable replenishable supply of this algae. So and they ferment it in the VATS and so during the fermentation process. What happens is they kind of feed a little bit of sugar in to get that fermentation started, and then the fermentation process turns the carbohydrate portion of this. Into oils and so then once they have their final fermented product that is rich in oils that press the oil out of the algae. And this oil is different from. Well, it's different from any other kind of algae. And and it is somewhat bioengineered which which I read is that they do they do add certain things together to make it so that it has a high percentage of mono unsaturated fats in which is the type of fat that's an olive oil and avocado oil. Only this algae oil has a much higher percentage of monounsaturated fats than any other plant oil. It's got like ninety percent of it is monounsaturated versus olive oil which has about seventy six percent monounsaturated so. Is this for would you treat it like olive oil when you cook or you treat it like something that can take a little higher heat? Well, the this one claims that it's great for high heat cooking because it has a smoking point of four, hundred, eighty, five degrees, which is really high and you know olive oils doesn't go that high come and so you know. So basically they have they've they've done this they said they've they've crossed bread. And otherwise. Genetically. Modified. Aspects of this algae to give it a high monounsaturated fat content. And then they you know. So they end up with an oil that has this high amount of monounsaturated. Therefore, it has a high amount of and has a high smoke point and one of the reasons. That you know they they talked about this smoke point in an oil comes from something called free fatty acids within the oil, which most of the fats in our diet, and especially even in our oils are in the form of what we call it triglycerides, which is basically three fatty acids attached to a glycerine molecule, and that's called a triglycerides and that's how most of our fouts exist in our foods a free fatty acid. Attached to a glacier all it's just kind of floating around in there and when you have free fatty acids in your oil as you're cooking it, those fatty acids start evaporating before the other oil components as it heats up and then that's what creates like these little soot particles and then eventually smoke. So

How Churches Are Reopening During Coronavirus

"More than seventy percent of church. I'm getting these stories from a thing called Christian headlines More than seventy percent of churches are meeting again and most practice social distancing. Most Protestant churches in the United States have returned to in person. Services. And most are also practicing social distancing by closing off certain seats to battle the coronavirus pandemic. According to a new life way research survey. More than seventy percent of Protestant churches met in person in July, a stark contrast to April when only ten percent met. The survey. Of. Protestant pastors shows seventy one percent of churches met July nineteenth seventy three percent. Met July Twelfth and seventy percent, July fifth. Meanwhile, churches are taking extra precautions to stop the spread of the virus for example, ninety four percent or providing hand, sanitizer, masks, or gloves to those needing it. Eighty six percent or conducting additional cleaning surfaces. Seventy six percent or closing seats to increase distance between people and to practice. Social distancing. Fifty nine percent recommend mast. Masks. About a third or requiring them. Although, most churches did not meet in May. A majority fifty five percent said they met the first weekend in June. Still, Twenty one percent of pastor say they have not met. Since the pandemic started. One, fifth of churches have offered drive in services during the pandemic, according to the study, resuming imperfect worship services has not been reverting to worship as usual. Says Scott McConnell Executive Director at lifeway research churches are making efforts to make the environment safe. But these efforts are often second gas by those who either want more precautions or less restrictions. Although most churches are meeting in person again only twenty nine percent or holding in Person Bible Studies. Only thirteen percent are holding children's activities. Maintaining social distance and necessary sanitation is very difficult with younger ages. To complicate things further saw the volunteers who normally work with kids and students are in high risk groups who are not ready to return anytime soon. That's pretty interesting.

"A beautiful natural, patrimony from C, Shiming, C, N beyon-, which the president degrades with his denial of science. America is our values which the president's disgraces by hadn't trillions to the national debt for our children to instead of investing in our children's future, including public education. His say the crowd is thinking, what is this crazy old lady ranting about impeach impeach? And that's what they want. They want impeachment. There's only one problem, the American public not super behind impeachment. You'll get the latest polls. They say that, that there is some support a growing support for impeachment, but it's still a vast minority. Democrats are increasingly in support of impeaching President Trump, according to CNN removing him from office. The majority of Americans remain opposed to the prospect, according to a new CNN poll, Trump's approval rating, hold exactly. Even where it wasn't late, April forty three percents approve fifty two percents disapprove of the president, according to the poll that's the case even to support for impeachment rose slightly from thirty seven percent last month to forty one percent right now. Those backing impeachment had forty three percents in December that is down from CNN's previous high Mark of the question. Forty seven percents in September of two thousand eighteen fifty four percents of Americans remain against impeachments, solid majority. However, among Democrats, a huge majority of Democrats want to see Trump impeached. Seventy six percent of Democrats favoring up from sixty nine percents in April white to hold college degrees. Have also increased their support for impeachment in surveys in April and March fewer than three in ten in that group favored proceedings that number has now climbed to forty one percent slightly, fewer now, say, the Democrats are overreaching in their investigations of Trump at forty percents of Americans feel that Democrats are over reaching with those investigations. So just to get that straight right now. Overall, forty one percent of people support impeachment forty percent, believe that Democrats are overreaching. So that is not even really a majority of people who have an opinion either way saying that they are either. Democrats side or the Republican side. Republicans apparently are softening a little bit on the overreach stuff. Eighty four percents. The, the Democrats were doing too much April that is seventy six percent right now. Sixty five percents of the public say that President Trump is facing more investigations than any previous president. But it's unclear as to whether those people believe that those investigations are unfair or not forty seven percent say that the investigations are justified by the facts, forty four percents, and they're not merited based on the fact. So basically, we're still a fifty fifty fifty country on every single issue worth noting here. Donald Trump's approval ratings. In these polls are in the low forties. Nancy, Pelosi's approval rating is forty percent favorable forty eight percents. Unfavorable. Favorable views of the speaker, climbing among moderate, and conservative Democrats is fifty eight percents in December is now seventy three percents, because she is standing up to the of the world. But the reason that the Democrats continue to play footsie with so many members of the democratic caucus, radical is specifically because the democratic caucus would like to see Trump go until you end up with absurdities like this one James Clyburn. The Representative from bleed South Carolina. Coming out and saying, yeah, you know, we'll impeach like some point probably like, in the future. Maybe sure, why not retinue we'll ridden this issue wash AVI go out and make misteps caused us to lose a court decision that will have people saying why didn't you take your time? How did you get out in front of this is kind of interesting to me is talk to people when you ask them? What, what they think we ought to do. They agree with what we're doing is just the most notably. They will not to see something done and see it done quicker. But people want us to be -ffective. What we do. All right. But the majority whip they're just a suggesting that you believe that the president will ultimately be impeached at some point, and he says, yes. Basically, at some point down the road, you know, if you hold out long enough Debbie Dingle, who is a Representative from Michigan. She says, you know, impeachment, we can't do this in a partisan fashion. Let's just take it slow. Oh, guys. Now, the reasons I want to take the slow is because they have no intention of impeaching, even if it were to get to the Senate would get killed in the Senate. It's an enormous waste of time, but they're happy to make overtures to their radical left base because they sort of have to at this point. Half of this is that Russia is trying to divide us as a country. They're trying to tech the fundamental principles of our democracy. Well, one community, and we've we're being divided by fear and hatred. My job is to protect this country and keep it from being torn apart. But keep us as one country. That's what drives me in all of this, and it worries me we need more Republicans to become involved in this. We need leadership on their side by. This is something that can't be done in a partisan way. Okay. So that is her excuse for not pushing for with all of this. Meanwhile, Senator John, Kennedy of Louisiana. He says to Democrats, basically channeling, Ben Stiller in Starsky, and hutch like do it. John Kennedy daring Democrats to go forward with us now. I think impeachment will be sisyphean cash, it'll be tough going in the Senate impeachment polls right up. There was skimmed milk among the American people. But, but my advice to my democratic friends is if you wanna do it go hard or go home. You know if you wanna do it go to Amazon online. Bosch, fine and do it, but go hard or go home. If you're not gonna do it, then let us get back to work. Well, I hate to waste a year and a half. Do it. Kind of love that from Senator Kennedy right there. The media, of course, continued to stoke the flames here, pretending that there's lots of support, so Greg Sargent, who's a leftist opinion writer over at Washington Post. He says, don't worry, you know, if you look at the early polls on Nixon, most people didn't want impeachment of Nixon wasn't impeached. Obviously, he resigned is closely followed the debate among Democrats over whether to launch an impeachment inquiry of President Trump, chances are the number nineteen as many who support impeachment hearings point out in early nineteen Seventy-three Gallup polling showed that only nineteen percents of Americans supported removing president Nixon by the summer of nineteen seventy four. When Nixon resigned support had climbed to the high fifties which illustrates that on impeachment public opinion can be moved in a big way presumably on Trump. He says he's obtained from Gallup detail partisan breakdown of those numbers. He says Democrats returned from recess that are puzzling over how to draw more public attention to Robert Muller's findings which could help build support for an impeachment inquiry. And so he now has a breakdown in what happened to public opinion. With regard to Nixon. So there's a couple of the question was, basically should be impeached should not be impeached. No opinion. And what it showed was that, basically, it was Republicans who caved on the issue, and most Democrats already started moving toward should be impeached by early nineteen seventy-four, most Republicans, thought, not by the end by August nineteen seventy-four, most Republicans wanted president Nixon impeached. Among Republicans support for impeachment or removal, moved from six percent in June of nineteen Seventy-three sorry to thirty one percents in August of nineteen seventy four, she's a massive shift among independence, from eighteen fifty five from Democrats twenty-seven to seventy one so it's never majority of Republicans right now independence are a key reason, public support for impeachment is low fifty six percents of Americans actually oppose it independence oppose it by fifty nine percent. So maybe they can shifts independence but I think that's a hard task frankly. And I think most Americans have what they believe President Trump at this point. I don't think new information. Is forthcoming now in a second. There is an area in which new information continues to be forthcoming, but it doesn't really have to do with Trump Russia, collusion or obstruction of Justice. It has to do more with the struck page investigation. Both regards to the Hillary Clinton, probe, and the Donald Trump Russia probe gets all that in just one second, I heart disease, Alzheimer's cancer, all horrible illnesses, that played countless Americans today. Thankfully, America's doctors. And researchers are working around the clock to find cures for all of them. But if government officials like secretary Alex are have their way that could all change having the government, mess with people's healthcare..

I think impeachment will be Sophy and cash, it'll be tough going in the Senate impeachment polls right up. There was skimmed milk among the American people. But, but my advice to my democratic friends is if you wanna do it go hard or go home. You know, if you wanna do it go to Amazon online vice spine and do it, but go hard or go home. If you're not gonna do it, then let us get back to work. Well, I hate to waste a year and a half. Do it. Kinda love that from Senator Kennedy right there. The media, of course, continued to stoke the flames pretending that there's lots of support, so Greg Sargent, who's a leftist opinion writer over at Washington Post. He says, don't worry, you know, if you look at the early polls on Nixon, those people didn't want impeachment of vixen Lincoln wasn't impeached. Obviously, he resigned is closely followed the debate among Democrats over whether to launch an impeachment inquiry of President Trump, chances are that you've heard this number nineteen as many who support impeachment hearings, point out in early nineteen Seventy-three Gallup polling showed that only nineteen percents of Americans supported removing president Nixon by the summer of nineteen seventy four. When Nixon resigned support had climbed to the high fifties, which Ellis traits that on impeachment public opinion can be moved in a big way presumably on Trump. He says he's obtained from Gallup detail partisan breakdown of those numbers. He says Democrats returned from recess Santer puzzling over how to draw more public attention to Robert Muller's findings which could help build support for an impeachment inquiry. And so he now has a breakdown in what happened to public opinion. With regard to. Nixon. So there's a couple of the question was, basically should be impeached should not be impeached. No opinion. And what it showed was that, basically, it was Republicans who caved on the issue. Then most Democrats already started moving toward should be impeached by early nineteen seventy-four, most Republicans, thought, not by the end by August nineteen seventy-four, most Republicans wanted president Nixon impeached. Among Republicans support for impeachment or removal, moved from six percent in June of nineteen Seventy-three sorry. Thirty one percents in August of nineteen seventy four they massive shift among independence, from eighteen to fifty five from Democrats twenty seven to seventy one so he's never majority of Republicans. Right now independence are key reason, public support for impeachment is low fifty six percents of Americans actually oppose it independence oppose it by fifty nine percent. So maybe they can shifts independence but I think that's a hard task frankly. And I think most Americans have what they believe of President Trump at this point. I don't think new information. Is forthcoming now the second, there is an area in which new information continues to be forthcoming, but it doesn't really have to do with Trump Russia, collusion or obstruction of Justice. It has to do more with the struck page investigation. Both regards the Hillary Clinton probe and the Donald Trump Russia probe gets all that in just one second, I heart disease, Alzheimer's cancer, all horrible illnesses, that played countless Americans today. Thankfully, America's doctors and researchers are working around the clock to find cures for all of them. But if government officials like secretary Alex are have their way that could all change having the government, mess with people's healthcare..

"All right. So I know this is hard to believe, but I actually found it. Okay. I found it. I found I found something. Okay. That both political parties, both the Democrats and the Republicans actually agree on that isn't that? Awesome. So, unfortunately, it's not the world's best us subject. But there is they both agree that Americans don't have enough retirements in. Okay. So what they saying? There's no deep political divide on this issue of retirement income security. Seventy six percent of Americans are concerned that they won't achieve a secure retirement and outta those seventy eight percent of them are Democrats and seventy six percent of them are on second. Hundred. But I don't know. I, you know, it's seventy six percent of Republicans DR seven this is this is fuzzy math Loretta. Okay. So puzzling, man. All right. But it's a wide spread and bipartisan worry that could have significant political ramifications retirement savings is a big concern. And there are signs at retirement will play a significant role surprise, okay? In the twenty twenty presidential race. In February Bernie Sanders. Heck? Yeah. He reintroduced the social security expansion act with sponsorships from three other leading democratic presidential contenders. That's Cory Booker and Kirsten gillibrand and Camila Harris. Okay. What a tree out they belong to the congressional caucus dedicated to increasing social security benefits. And it was formed last fall. It already has more than one hundred fifty democratic members and Sanders and Elizabeth Warren another presidential candidate. Are it's co chairs in the Senate. Okay. So, you know, I think this is a good thing. I mean, you know, I'm glad to see that paying attention to this. But of course, the answer is why not just expand social security to solve the retirement crisis. That's what they're going to suggest. That's what they're. Solution will be and now look at the realistic side of this. Because if we expanded social security to provide an adequate retirement for the majority of American workers get this one Lorette payroll taxes would go from twelve percent where they are today to over thirty percent just payroll taxes, that's before we pay state taxes and federal taxes, and such and such and such. So you know, I mean, what's the solution? Well, as it has always been it's one that I think we need to as Americans help ourselves. Right. We have to take care of ourselves. How and I get why they're saying that because it's almost like a forced let's force them to to save more. And yet I love the listeners when they call their almost every time when I'm speaking to them for the first time, they're saying, they're saying, you know, I get this social security is there, but I'm going to take charge of my own future. Okay. I'm going to make sure that I am escorted away with. Route worrying about what social security is going to do or not do. And so this is why we want to be able to get the latest and greatest information about safe investing that you get a great return, and we can help you to create a plan. Not just something that you're. Plan. So I wanna get you phone number. Okay. Before you do. I'm just going to give this little what we call. It. A teaser teaser about this. What if we can talk about today, how to take otherwise payable taxes, okay, and redirect that money into causes that you support your own personal retirement? Okay. Yeah. That would be good, right? All right. We're gonna talk about the number to call is eight six six five four four seventy seven fifty five.

"Thirty five on this Wednesday afternoon. President Trump delivered his second state of the union address last night on Capitol Hill joins us now from Washington to recap that speeches CBS correspondent Steven Portnoy. Good afternoon, Stephen and to you. You know, the president was in a good mood today. You said he offered loving words words of compromise. In state of the union last night. He says they've been very well received. The White House is pointing to our CBS news poll taken overnight. Which shows that those who watched the speech seventy six percent said they appreciated. The president's message about twenty four percent said they disapproved of what he had to say the poll was comprised of people who told us in advance. They intended to watch the speech and skewed more heavily toward the president's supporters was not necessarily reflective of the broader population in the country. It's a self selecting population that told us in advance as they say, they're going to watch a speech, but of those who did watch the speech, they told us in the survey that they generally liked what the president had to say. So Mr. Trump was in good spirits today as he was asked about one of the lines in this speech. He issued what he called ridiculous partisan investigations at the top democrat. The chairman of the house intelligence committee announced today that his panel will expand its probe of the Russia inquiry in and essentially get into the president's private business dealings. President Trump said today that Adam Schiff is a is a partisan political hack who has no basis for digging. Into the president's finances. The president also said no national emergency yet. Well, the president didn't mention national emergency. But he again called for the wall. He talked about the onslaught of as he put it of migrants heading to the country and the caravans and the big question that hangs over everything in Washington the next week and a half is whether the president will declare a national emergency the pressure that he's going to face is not just from Democrats, and those who might take to court, but also from Republicans because what could happen is the democratic controlled house of representatives could pass a resolution of disapproval putting the issue right in the Senate where Republican leader Mitch McConnell does not want to necessarily have to put his colleagues on the record as to whether they believe that there is a national emergency in effect. I it's very rarely if ever used power of the congress to overturn a national emergency declaration made by the president. But Democrats say they're prepared to do it in this case, and it might just force and on the record vote in now are there enough votes to? Override a presidential veto such a resolution to actually cancel the emergency declaration. No, perhaps not, but it would put Republicans on the record. And that will put them in a very uncomfortable place. Stephen. Thank you very much. That's CBS's. Steven Portnoy, joining us from Washington this afternoon on WBZ. Well, the World Bank may be poised for a shakeup with President Trump planning to nominate a critic of the Bank to run it. President. Trump says David Malpass has the tools to be ineffective leader. In addition to his current service overseeing the IMF and actually overseeing the World Bank as undersecretary of international affairs at the department of the treasury David brings forty years of experience in economics finance government and foreign policy to his new assignment, the one hundred eighty nine nation World Bank provides low cost loans for projects around the world mopus has called for curbing the World Bank's financial reach and his criticize its lending to China, which provides a lot of.

Far too, many hard working Americans are falling behind Abrahams blame the president for causing the government shutdown shutdown was a stunt engineered by the president of the United States. And she said that Trump tax plan rigged the system against working people rather than bringing back jobs plants are closing layoffs are looming. She does not want Mr. Trump to fail. But we need him to tell the truth and South Korea today is expressed optimism about the summit. Mr. Trump announced with North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN except for the. End of the month in Vietnam. CBS news national security contributor, Michael. Morales says since the first summit North Korea has not made clear strides toward denuclearization. We know that they continue to do activities on the ground to advance their program and sanctions have weakened as other nations have loosened the restrictions and most importantly, Kim has a seat on the stage. So what the president has to do with the second summit is has to incentivize or make clear that he's got to move towards negotiations.
