Disney Plus Launches Star, A Streaming Outlet With More Grown-Up Fare

"Knew that star was launching february twenty third which recording this yesterday. I am in canada. So i have access to it along with australia. New zealand parts of europe in singapore. So a few countries have this new section on their disney plus app. And it's a big deal. It's a big deal for me. Because we get all the wes anderson movies. It's a big deal for some other people because they get like twenty four and richard devine from window. Central is tweeting about how much she loves. Twenty four and jack bowers back baby and all that so. I just wanted to talk about where we are in terms of streaming. I know disney or marvel disney made a big bunch of big announcement this morning On when the next set of mcu in star wars shows will be released on disney plus. And then there's all the other services right. There's hbo max there's peacock there's discovery plus there's Paramount plus. I guess if you want to call that new and all this leads to confusion for people who just want to find the show to watch. So let's start with disney. They now have ninety five million subscribers. They are doing really really well. In terms of expansion into new countries. This new star lodge is a big deal so give us the t. l. Dr if you will of why star launched now and why. It's a big deal for people outside the us lawyers. It's always the lawyers. Yeah i say why did it launch now because this is when they could finally agree on. Okay here's where the contracts in so we can pick things up. Yeah the the. The really oversimplified version is this in the united states. We have hulu and hulu has basically everything. That's not under the five pillars of disney plus in those disney star. Wars marvel pixar in national geographic. Anything outside of that. you what. You're forgetting well. I was gonna say you're forgetting the pillar of twentieth century fox and twentieth century fox which is on hulu so so virtually anything outside of those five pillars in the. Us will find on hulu yes. They're exceptions the problem is hulu is not anywhere in the rest of the world. It's a decidedly american phenomenon and so disney needed a way to get all this content to everybody else in pay by the way they get to charge a little more for it too and that became star the way they first announced it they do it. What other earnings calls last year It was a little like just weird. I didn't even fully understand it at the time and it took a little while to sink in and then the developer not developer days there investor days into simmer november december whenever that was explained. It a little better really. It's just that simple if it's if it's content you can probably find on hulu here in the us it's going to be on star everywhere else. So given that disney twentieth century fox. They bought a. They bought that from fox which was previously a shareholder in hulu disney is now the majority shareholder of hulu. Why can't they just bring hulu to the rest of the world. What is that. I mean i don't know the brand well who owns. Who is the issue there although disney now entirely owns who if i correct right they finish tying their last pieces of hulu like two years ago for for all intents and purposes and there might be somebody with a little sliver but it it's a disney joint partially owned by comcast but they're buying it slowly over the next few years right. Yeah that was an agreement that was made a couple of years ago but But that's why comcast is okay. All of our stuff is leaving hulu at this date because we will no longer have a share in it and it's all going to peacock But yeah the reason that who didn't exist in all these other countries was media streaming lauzon like entertainment and streaming laws vary by country by country. It takes a lot of money to get the rights to a decent amount of shows in places other than the us so it was a matter of hulu. Didn't really have the time or the or the money to spend on investing in trying to build up a catalog and other countries the only other country that hulu is in outside of the united states is japan. And i'm not sure how much longer is going to be there since they're probably going to roll it into star but it's disney had the clout to roll around the disney also already had rights to a lot of these things or the released they in contracts and have the rights back right so it's just easier to bring a new sub domain umbrella underneath disney plus put all the twentieth century fox content in there called star and make it a separate kind of expansion for everybody who already has disney plus. All star is disney. Plus for grownups. It's harder to always you know proper phones not anymore. But that's a. That's a good analogy. Yeah all right. So we we have star. It's got all the twentieth century fox stuff. I think it's got more than that. That's also where a lot of like. Abc television stuff ended up. It's also where a bunch of other like indie stuff that disney and fox had bought up over the years. Anything fox searchlight his ended up in there. That's why it's it's a huge a collection of content. I'm amazed that they were able to get the international rights for those together quickly. Enough for star for the international launches. So the question. I have is is disney. Plus going to host new content in star is that is this where they're going to compete with netflix and hbo for adult viewership or are they still kind of not really aiming at that audience. No actually. I think you've got that right in. It's going to get a little weird because contents can vary by country but you can see that a little bit in the in the Release lists you get you get stuff that is decidedly more adult in there and and part of that is just from the content. That's coming out of those houses in the first place. If you look at specifically fx stuff here it's called fx. Hulu it is it is. I don't know that. I'd go so far as to say it's r rated but it's pretty damn close. Fx is yeah fx is definitely not child-friendly content like ninety percent of it like isn't fx. Were archer lives yeah. Fx is is archer archer archers ethics original sort of But yeah we look at the. The new exclusive stuff like fx on hulu like depths. Was one. I loved last year. I thought it was excellent right up until the end and it went. A little off the rails. Mrs america was on there as well. I mean there's stuff that the you wouldn't even otherwise necessarily see on cable but that they're streaming in that fashion. lets them. do you know just a little more than they. otherwise would have And it's not something that you would see on disney plus so this gives them another conduit for that stuff as well. Yeah and the brand new original content is also going. It's going to vary by the audience category. 'cause like anything that's marvel or star wars is not going to be listed under the star brand period. If it belongs to one of those temples it's still going to be disney plus branded and everything starts going to have the both labels at the bottom whenever they're advertising it but it's a matter of if we're going to do original series if it's pg or if it's pg thirteen below it'll probably be disney plus branded and if it's not pg thirteen disney and pg thirteen and up will probably be star

She has faced the lack of understanding of privilege discriminatory hiring practices how to be an ally and so much more. I hope you enjoy the episode. As much as i did. Thanks for listening a less. Thank you for joining me in cybersecurity interviews. How are you today. I am doing wonderful. Doug how're you. I'm doing great so our are things in the beautiful middle part of the country. I is i to in colorado. But has milwaukee doing these days. Gosh we are about to get our first real dumping of snow at least over your recording. This by the time at arizona probably have had tons. But i'm actually gonna go get gas for the snowblower the last place. I really got to travel and speak at. Wasn't milwaukee in january flew in and out. It was gonna be a one day speaking thing in you know anybody. I should have known better having in law that those up all my family from the midwest. North chicago and ohio january. You're not getting in and out of anywhere in the midwest without some type of delay in my you know my arrogance of that being about a three day delay. They kept cancelling how to drive from milwaukee to chicago and it was a whole thing but i got to see the lake. Cresting waves as the snow is blowing in milwaukee so it was very interesting. Clear that you can get out of chicago easier than milwaukee usually milwaukee. Is you know. We're kind of like canada south with that. As long as they can. Keep the runway clear enough to get a plane on it though. Fly planes out. But if it gets bad enough i know they. They've shut down a few times. Speak that i mean you you were you were you know. Have built a name and a brand by traveling and speaking. Do you miss the travel aspect this year of getting out there and being on stage like you have no idea of feeling i have an idea. Trust me on the wall. I went into twenty twenty expecting all this international travel. I just changed jobs. And and it was part of that job. Was supposed to include a lotta travel to international conferences and even our our locations and yet none of that happened i did. Rsa and then besides tampa was scheduled to go to singapore and sydney in the two weeks following and in between those two. They shut down all travel. And yeah i've been. I've been here in my home office which i feel guilty saying suffering is pretty pretty awesome office but yeah i i cannot wait to get back on a plane. Fact even allman i have been talking about how a bunch of us are going to go find someplace to all traveled together. Just because it's we've all missed it for so long that he's actually somebody. I gotta hit out back channeled him. Because i'm trying to raise the next level of hackers and my daughter who's ten and her friend. The condition was they were able to go get the leftover halloween candy at their at my friend's daughters house. If they can get through the lock. I said cool. I'll teach guys lock picking. And i'll get you a signed copy of the lock picking guy so i try to get them to learn about lock. Picking it sucks not being out there and kind of seeing the whole community. What drove to obviously not not a wallflower. You wanna get out there and talk. What drove you to kind of get on stage. It's it's not something that's always a done by folks in our industry where where they can somewhat be a little bit more reserved. Yes so it's kind of funny. Because i've been speaking at conferences since two thousand fourteen and but i never really got was ever really serious about it like i do one here and there and it was a lot of it was because i was working in a consulting role. And it's good for you know when you're consultant especially it's good for your organization to have people out there speaking and i found right away the first time i did it like that was actually a lot of fun But then the more. I did it the more i started to realize like i just i i really you know. I've got a lot of ideas. I want to share and i love doing this because i've always been believe it or not. You know you you talk about me being out there and it's like i was very socially awkward like i was the person i go to a conference and be completely alone in a sea of thirty thousand people at defcon. Right which i mean. That's not unusual. People do that all the time but even smaller conferences like i was just never very good at starting conversations with people and so when i would speak it was a whole different world because you'll people would recognize you from having been on stage in an it. Stop you in the hall to ask you questions about what you talked about or whatever or just to thank you and it was such a great icebreaker because now i could get in. I could have conversations with people in the hallway about all this stuff that we were passionate about and we could. We could share ideas. And that's what conferences are all about to

"Who everyone welcome back to reimagine twenty twenty four. I'm roche mirage car from mouse and i'm one of your host for this event We are starting with our halloween themed for this event four events. And that's why. I'm dressed like this. I'm so excited to be joined here by jason loud. The coo at okay coin. Jason thank you so much for joining us today and let's start off just by asking you know. How has it been for you and your team just coping with the whole virtual situation The past couple months. Hey rush thanks for having me That's this is certainly been a challenge right a challenging year for for most of us and has been no different for our team. We were based here in san francisco. And i think the most interesting thing about this year for us has been that we've actually expanded our quite dramatically over the past six seven months. Despite the fact that we none of us have been in the office. Our office has been closed. And we've had Last i checked was thirty. New people join us over this this time so with thirty colleagues teammates that have never met anyone else on our team So we we we very quickly transition to doing everything online as most of you know everyone else is doing And you know that that's been fun and challenging at the same time. Yeah that's actually a cool little fact to start things off because a lot of let's say traditional companies are trying to down size or they're all they're already going virtual so glad to hear that you being one of the crypto companies in the space are are hiring and expanding. I'm a little more on. That front. looks like okay. Corn has been up to a lot of different things especially when it comes to licenses and regulations. I've seen a great push in the in the eastern market and even in asia What can you tell me about the importance for you. All of the asian market. And do you think that will that will continue to see more growth there or Do you think that the us 'cause you said you're in san francisco do that in the us. Some things will be will be yeah On that note we even just sort of on our licensing and compliance teams. We've we've added a lotta people specifically because we are sort of targeting this global approach to regulations and licenses and and the like So on your on your question. Around what our efforts have been And sort of what regions were looking at we are we're regulating here in the us We're also regulated in europe The the malta regulators. Over there we last year I might be getting my dates wrong. But i think yeah last year earlier this year we got our license in japan and so that that was a process that took almost two years to to accomplish so Big props to the team there as well as Working on our licensed today in singapore. So we've got a whole bunch of things going on And i think the important is that Licensing one it's obviously the the law right. We have to comply with what governments and regulators are are putting in mostly consumer protection. But you know putting in place to make sure that there's a building of trust in our in our space and to it permits us to access And sir bill that that Userbase with the with the backing of these regulators and permission right So so regulation is super important and then as we think about that. Broadly like i mentioned we do service users globally so not no. I don't want to say one region is more important than another But you know our heritage stems from originally founded in In beijing in two thousand thirteen and so we do have a very strong user base and brand recognition in asia will always remain a key. Focus point for us. We mentioned singapore mentioned japan. But all the parts of asia to hong kong southeast asia are areas that we we we certainly have have users and continue to grow that area

Biden announces sanctions on Myanmar coup leaders

Biden announces sanctions on Myanmar coup leaders

"One of the preferred tools of his predecessor to punish military leaders and millet Myanmar sanctions. The U. S will freeze about $1 billion worth of Myanmar government assets held in the United States. Military leaders took control of the country in a coup earlier this month and yesterday, Biden called for a return to democracy there. Military must relinquish power it seized and demonstrate respect for the world of the people of Burma. As expressed in their November 8th election. The party of the deposed civilian leader on Song Souci swept those elections. She was detained in the coup, and for the past six days, protesters have filled streets throughout the country. Reporter Michael Sullivan has been following the events in Myanmar and joins us now from his base in neighboring Thailand. Good morning, Michael Good morning. Who exactly do these new sanctions target? We don't know for sure, the administration says details will come later this week, but I think it's pretty safe to say the coup leader, Senior General Men online is at the top of the list, along with a small circle of subordinates, basically the same bunch probably who are sanctioned by the U. S and 2019. For their role in the brutal crackdown against the Muslim minority Rohingya Amid allegations of genocide. President Biden also said the sanctions might not be limited to just the generals but include family members and business interests, too. It's not clear if that meant the family's business interests or the military's like the two very, very large military, one companies involved in all sorts of businesses that jade trade Helicon banks, etcetera, some of which have foreign investors or partners, who came after Western sanctions started being lifted in 2012 at the beginning of what look, then to be the start of me and March transition to Democratic rule Well, Michael, Me and Mara is closer to China and other Southeast Asian countries than it is to the U. S. So considering that how effective can these U. S sanctions be? Yeah, well, that's a good question. When President Biden says he wants to work with international partners toe urge other nations to join in these efforts, But it's going to be a slog not just with China but with other countries in the region and beyond Singapore. Japan, Thailand all jumped in after the opening in 2012 in some cases earlier and there's lots of money to be made in Myanmar and a lot to lose by turning against the generals. About China. It might not be happy with the coup, either. It got along just fine without some shoot on some sushi and their party, and there are some reports the military thought Souci and China were getting on far too well. Myanmar's generals don't really trust China don't like it, in part because of their own long fight against communist insurgents, and even today. China is said to provide weapons to some of the minority ethnic groups fighting Myanmar's military for more autonomy. China like things the way they were with him, some Souci, the military maybe not so much. Since Biden announced the sanctions on Wednesday have the military leaders in Myanmar said anything about that. Not yet, but they haven't been very concerned by sanctions in the past. I don't see them starting now. And of course, with all these people protesting, there's the concern about what might the Myanmar military do? Will anyone get hurt? How has the military responded so far? With restraint of the beginning, and then in the middle. It sort of got a little worse on Tuesday after it issued its veiled warning to prevent acts that violate what it called state's ability, state stability In the rule of law. Things did turn ugly and several places with water cannon and rubber bullets used by police and several different cities. But things to have calmed down since so they're happened. More rests of political figures. Nighttime curfews are in place in some areas. The protesters are still coming out every day in big numbers, and I don't see that changing unless the military shuts it down, forcibly definitively, And that's the big fear, because they've done it before reporter Michael

Why Biden's economic team would rather go too big on COVID-19 relief

"What is going to happen in this economy. Prison biden treasury secretary yelling and a couple of big name. Ceo's including j p morgan's jimmy diamond and sonia singapore from gap had confab in the oval office. Today the president's economic relief plan of course was the topic at hand. Barabra morty is the deputy director of the national economic council at the white house. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. Let's start with the news of the day shall we. The meeting in the oval office today between president biden. Insects are yelling and some big business. Ceo's the head of the chamber of commerce was there jamie diamond from j. p. morgan chase. What is the president trying to do getting big business lined up behind him and this relief plant. Well i think that he is looking for their support for the bill and for their knowledge that we need to go big in this moment. I think what the president is hearing from. His top economic advisers is that We are at a precarious moment. Just last week. The jobs report came out and showed that job. Growth is really stalling in america. Even though we're about ten million jobs short of where we were pre pandemic and so. I'm secretary yellen down to his other economic advisers. There is a uniform belief that we need to go. We need to fundamentally alter the trajectory of the recovery and we need to make sure that we're putting money behind putting a vaccine people's arms because the fastest way to get the economy. Moving again is to make sure that we be cooked. Totally agree with the vaccine being this economy right now. I cannot and will not argue with that. But i do want to ask you about this idea of going big as you know. There are some consternation by some that may be one point. Nine trillion dollars is too much that it is in fact more than the economy needs given where for example. The congressional budget office says. We're going to be this summer Where'd you get one point nine trillion dollars and is that too much. I know we don't believe it's too much. And so i wanna talk a little bit about the process by which the president and his team put this package together. I would describe it as a bottom up process so for example there are nearly seven million americans who are behind on their rent an at risk of addiction. We need to provide rental assistance. Those people in the package provides the match rental assistance needed to make sure we keep them in their homes from secretary yell and two other top economic advisors. You is your an asymmetric risks situation. And by that. I mean the risks of going to small with this package far outweigh the risks of going too big so we add that all up. I think the president is very comfortable with the size of the american rescue plan. And i think the american people agree with him. Because there's something like seventy percents support for the package. Let's talk about the the flip side of of going through small which is the concern. The president has one of the concerns about going to big is that there may be some inflation coming in this economy with so much money coming in so soon with the pent up demand. That is sure to happen. Once people can go out and spend and travel and and enjoy life again Are you not worried about that. Well a group monitoring all sorts of different risks to economy and secretary yellen and and others have made clear that they are carefully monitoring the risks of inflation issue. Is that if you do too. Little means that people are going to go hungry. It means that people are going to be booted out of their homes in the middle of pandemic and those are just not acceptable outcomes to the president and look. We are far below the feds inflation target and have been for a very very long time and not to get too wonky owner. I think that the chair powell and others have said the goal is actually to increase in play shen to get closer to that two percent target that they have were. We're a long ways off. I i wonder how Given the the makeup of of the president's economic team many of whom were around in two thousand eight and two thousand nine how scarred people are by the prospect of going to small with a relief. Bill well i can't speak for others and i was not personally there in two thousand and eight thousand nine but i do think that there is a an assessment of the latest and best economic evidence. You look at a where interest rates have been how they have been low extended period of time and you weigh You costs and the risks of adding to the deficit. And i think it very clearly comes out in favour of going big me pick up on something you just said because it struck me when the president said something similar a number of weeks ago that He is he is taking a page from the republicans. Playbook saying look we have to borrow. We have to do deficit spending. It doesn't matter how we pay for it. And i i. Maybe you don't know this. Maybe weren't in those conversations but how did he come around to. You know what we're going to borrow the money the heck with it again. He and his team have been Deep into the economic evidence. And i think over the last five or ten years yet. Economic evidence in support of more robust deficit financing particularly for a temporary emergency measures such as. This one is pretty airtight. The president has been clear that when it comes to permanent changes in policy in other words policy that involves spending each and every year for the foreseeable future that he does think that that should be offset with new tax increases on the wealthy and on big corporations so again i think that is a view that is backed up by the best economic evans

Can Australia and China learn to get along?

"Tensions with china. Australia's tried stash with. China has escalated sharply with savage new tariff. Sit hit our wine industry hard from tomorrow. All australian wine will be hit with a one hundred to two hundred per cent hike. A move gross. I will devastate the industry. There was an abc news account of china hitting our wine sector of course assign deterioration of sino australian relations in the past. Gee indeed relationship between our nations have not been so dismal in more than half a century that is since before them opened ties with communist china. Mainland we give expression to new international album. No nation is on you. Aspirations symbolize law china upon our region. That was then prime minister. Gough whitlam ushering in a new era of cooperation between beijing and camber that was in nineteen seventy three. However in the past year in response to cambridge calls for an inquiry into the origins of covid nineteen. The chinese government has launched an unprecedented economic retaliation against our export industries. We mentioned one. Is bali. Beef lamb cotton lobster timber call and so on. Now you might ask not unreasonably. Why can't cambridge just restore relations with china indeed. How often have you heard the critics. Say if only camera toned down its rhetoric. Restored a dialogue rebuild trust with beijing. If the government did all these things did more to accommodate china all would be well instead where told cambra native sleep provokes trade partner by implementing foreign interference laws rejecting the wildlife.

The hugh watt the jeff rabies. The stephen fitzgerald's the linda jakobsen's the giants lawrenson and some of them. however kanchana really rise peacefully. And is it really fair to say that when there's trouble it's invariably the fault of either washington's hawkish policies or a net australian diplomacy. How do you deal with our largest trade partner that is converting its economic might into strategic and military clout.

Us and abbey's measures against our exports justified in your judgment. Let me try tom to be very frank and help flow by giving you. What's that regional exception of australia. In the larger context the world has changed. We have gone from the euro than domination of world history to us. The ancient century and australia is very lucky that it is situated in the heart of issues now but australia still behaves culturally a western society in an asian dominated environment. And just to give you one simple example but you walk into an asian home. Most times you take off your shoes. That's asian culture. This not western culture the take off your shoes now with decide their fall to live and work in sight and asian home. Do you want to try and understand the issue norms or do you want to work.

Myanmar's leader detained as military seizes control in apparent coup

"Chang, the country of Myanmar is under military control again after a coup deposed the government of former democracy icon on San Souci. The military claims. Massive election fraud that sauce Ooh Cheese party went overwhelmingly in November's general election. Michael Sullivan reports. The military says it's state of emergency will only last a year. Mo Tosia of the Institute for Southeast Asian Studies in Singapore. Isn't buying. She has a long memory and recalls a similar promise made by the military. After a student led uprising. Decades ago, I go back to 1988 promise was to convene elections and hand over power to the party that won the elections, and we all know what happened to 1990. What happened then, she says, was that on some soup cheese party won convincingly. Victory. The military then refused to recognize. But today she insists things are different than they were 30 years ago. The global political and economic climate It will just be very unfavorable for military hunter seeking to justify his actions. I think That's assuming the military cares. I think that probably calculated that they've got friends in the world that will be disappointed in them, but will ultimately put their own self interests to the fore. And let them get away with it. David Matheson is a Youngun based analyst reached in Thailand. The endgame, I think is quite disturbing. I think it's them holding onto power. And definitely Mary Kelehan, a Myanmar scholar at the University of Washington, who is in the former capital, Yangon, isn't so sure. I don't even know if they have a plan. But, she says, even without a plan This crisis was inevitable, given the cohabitation that the 2008 Constitution imposed upon political and personal photos or enemies, So I'm not so shocked. To be honest. That arrangement she says, was created in part by the military drafted Constitution. That allowed it to retain control over several key ministries while guaranteeing the military a quarter of the seats in parliament effective veto power. Despite this on song suit, she went to the International Court of Justice in 2019 to refute allegations of genocide by Myanmar's military against the Muslim minority Rohingya. I think foreigners read too much into that, and that's what's being that's what we're hearing over and over. Which is that you know, she went to bat for the military, but she went about for her country. I mean, she saw this I C J case as an attack on her country and inevitable or not, Callahan says. This crisis couldn't have come at a worst time mammals facing its greatest health threat since the Spanish flu of 1918 There's new outbreaks of fighting in places where there had not been violent in a decade, and now it has a national political crisis when she says that will not turn out well for the people

]]Securing Public Pensions

"The first star emission disturbing members can be police officers. They came preschool employees and state employees. And what we do is we. We make sure that they have a retirement benefit at the time that they're ready to stop actively working in calpers over the last four years has been making very difficult decisions about the appropriate funding of these pension plans for the future. We'll trust i'm dan. Lewis can this is after the fact and that was marcy frost. She leads the california public employees retirement system. Calpers is the nation's largest public pension system with a global investment portfolio of around four hundred twenty billion dollars that's a figure larger than the gdp of countries like norway singapore and the difficult decisions. Marcie mentions affect the retirement benefits for nearly two million public employees retirees and their families is a challenge facing many states across the country as they look at the best ways to fund their public pension systems. And that's something. Greg menace works on at pugh helping states develop solutions to close the funding gap between what state pension plans odor their public employees. And the money. That's being put aside to pay that bill up. Hugh analysis in two thousand eighteen found that funding gap in the states totaled one point two four trillion dollars. That's with a t and that's the data point for our episode. It's a number. Experts see growing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic amid those daunting numbers states like pennsylvania and california have discovered innovative ways to ensure pension systems. Keep their promises to retirees. Most people are familiar with 401k. Plans and over sixty million americans saved through retirement primarily through those kinda plans in the public sector. It's different where most of the state and local workers participate in what are called defined benefit plans by and large this distinction where in the public sector benefits are paid for through a fixed payment in retirement And the money is managed by the state and today there's about four trillion dollars in public assets. Invested in stocks bonds alternative investments is the main differences between that. Most people save for retirement. The all of us have to be concerned about our retirement. All of us need to plan ahead. Why should all of us care about the public. Employees pension system a well funded pension system in the public sector. can literally cost billions billions of dollars less every year from the state or local budget as compared to one. That's severely underfunded. The short answer is that in a well-funded system the state or local government is setting aside money each and every year while people are working to pay for their benefits when they retire and as it turns out by doing that it ends up that compounded investment earnings and up paying for the majority of the benefit. I'm in contrast they severely underfunded system. Where the money hasn't been set aside while people are in their working years. They lose out. On all kinds of compounded investment earnings and as a result the majority of the cost comes out of the state for state or local budget. I'm just to provide some examples. We look at pension. Plans in states. Like tennessee and south dakota and wisconsin all of which are close to being fully funded. It sounds like if states are planning their investments properly in a smart way. The earnings made by those investments can pay for the costs to maintain the fund. What happens with states. That aren't fully funded if you look at states like kentucky illinois new jersey all of which have less than fifty percent of the assets set aside that budgetary cost is closer to fifteen percent of revenue on average so that means no state somewhere between one and ten in one in five tax dollars going to pensions that adds up to about a ten billion dollars of additional cost across those three states alone. And so i think this is important from the public's perspective not only because of the impact that can have on state and local budgets and in turn the resources that are available for public services but also because having a well-funded system helps to prevent reductions in workforce or cuts in benefits that you need to attract skilled public workforce to be very specific. That means there's less money to buy police cars or paved roads or any other public service. That taxpayer dollars fund right. I mean and that's that's a big deal. I mean the government is always looking to contain costs whether it's healthcare or other issues this is. This is a big ticket item for a lot of states. That's absolutely right. And as i mentioned before. I think for a larger state and city the difference between having a well-funded system in an underfunded system comes out billions of dollars every year so everything from investments in education and infrastructure to healthcare ends up being strained in the budget each and every year it almost sounds like innovation is sort of old school ideas of like. Just you know figuring out what the bills are going to be a mixture. You got the money to pay for them you know. I think that that's right. And there are two ways in particular where i think innovation plays a role you to first off it has to do with how plans and pension systems planned for uncertainty and some of the states that i just mentioned tennessee. Wisconsin in south dakota very clear predefined rules about how to adjust cost if there's a downturn or investments underperform. This includes building margin of safety into assumptions essentially setting aside a rainy day fund within the pensions system and then also adjustments to worker benefits. That are clearly understood by everybody and so from that perspective i think innovation goes back to looking at the policies and practices that these states have been following for

Business Lessons with Michael Teoh

"Michael is served fortune. Five hundred companies across forty one countries. Michael take a minute and filling for the tidbits about your law. Thank you so much andrew into all of you listening to this podcast and watching our interview right now lonzo doctrine that's a piece greeting from where i'm from kuala lumpur malaysia nestled in the heart of asia. Just in between singapore and thailand. A little bit tidbit about me is that i'm very grateful. Where during one of my productivity trainings. That i deliver to leaders around the world. It happened in malaysia. On one fine day. Web president barack obama actually visited my training. The president came for half an hour and it left me pleasantly surprised. Though i was shocked and i didn't know what to say for the next one minute. It was an awkward silence but the president gave his signal that i could carry on and then i carried the session on for the next thirty minutes and then the president came up took the stage gave his speech and we had a great time to connect with each other he gave a very very kind testimonial to the work that i was doing for the valla people because at the end of the day andrew really. I believe it's people like us many hardworking people out there watching this interview right now. Who's listening in. We are the ones that make the world goes round. We are the ones that put food on the table and we are the ones that really the movers and shakers many of us unsung heroes again. Thank you again andrew. And that's one of the reasons why i wanted. I was so excited to agree to be given this opportunity even to appear on your show again. Thank you andrew fantastic. You know. it's an interesting thing. Michael that as a financial guy. A lotta times. I spent my and i've spent my years during the performance of companies. And you know what. I've come to learn over. The years is that financial success has to do with two things number one the leader of the company if it's a bad leader in a bad direction that they choose. It's very hard to have strong. Financial success true so number one is the leader and the number two thing. is that what i've learned. In my opinion you don't need superstars. You need good qualified people but what you need is coordination amongst the management team. That's if you have a good leader and coordination amongst the land management team. That is the secret sauce. And so for all those people listening out there. If you think you're gonna find it in a financial statement. It's not there. Because remember as i always teach in my teaching of people in management i always say and particularly to my finance students finance adds no value. And what i mean by that is that finance is a mirror it is a reflection it is a way. It is a feedback mechanism for management team to judge the impact of their decisions. So i like people to understand particularly financial people. I know a lot of financial friends. Listen to this podcast. I want financial. People always keep in mind. That finance is a supporting function. Just as much as human resources and others and if you go into business only with a focus on finance you'll never get there but if you go into business with focus on management leadership strategy in building a team. That works together. It's unstoppable spot on andrew spa and also. I think you know the other thing about i. I often say to small and medium-sized businesses. Never fear giant businesses. Yeah they are so messed up. They can't easily coordinate. The activities of their management team and of the different business units a very difficult thing to do and they've also fallen prey to the the idea of. Kpi's in the sense that everybody has a key performance indicators that they're pushing and all the sudden you have everybody working hard in their own area but few people thinking about how to coordinate that effort and that's why the coordination of the management team is what really can said a small medium sized business apart and make an impact anyways. Those are those. What's your i mean. You've you've done a lot with large as well as small and medium-sized businesses. What are some of the takeaways. Let's just say there's there's listeners here to do have small and medium-sized businesses. What are some of the things that you've learned over the years. I believe one of the things. Andrew that i've just had the fortune to work with is with fortune. Five hundred companies as you mentioned across forty one countries and i agree with you spot on and you mentioned some of these large companies. They have a lot of challenges when they're not coordinated or even if the global headquarters is shoes a directive but when it comes to a localization part if they do not work or respect local partners to work with it doesn't work and one thing i find having coach one hundred fifty. Sme's during this pandemic because it is during this time where truth be told andrew if you would ask me. Is it my first preference to work with sms. Truth be told. It's not reason being because during this pandemic when it hit malaysia we ran into a lot now immediately all out. Huge corporate clients decided to freeze training. Funds decided to freeze employees development funds. And i realized that s my business was suffering yet. I didn't wanna give up so what i felt was. Hey if the big boys or the big corporates are not able to pay me. Where else can i bring my company. Where else can pivot. And where else can i add tremendous value. Because i'm a believer if you wanna get paid in. Whatever you're doing do not ask us of what people could give you but instead ask what you can give people so i started asking myself. What value can i give. And that was. When i realized that a lot of sme's struggling they were shutting down. And then i realized that. I coach i train. I guide a lot of bit. Corporates on sales marketing on how to happen entrepreneurial jal thinking and i thought i'm just going to bring all this formula that i've learned from all these big companies and i'm going to localize it personalized to sme's and that was how we help them generate five to six figures revenue during the time when everyone was closing shop independent lockdown that hit malaysia. And then people heard about us across the region and that was how we got invited across south east asia and part of the united states to do trainings consulting and even some mentoring virtually. But if you were to ask me what i really respect from. Sme's that were willing to at least fight. During this pandemic is their willingness that openness to be jal and to be nimble and to assure a-team that things are going to be uncertain. They're going to be uncertain if physician change of a drop of a hat. They must have be emotional audacity the strength to cope with it and to just have that faith that better things will come

WHO team arrives in Wuhan to investigate pandemic origins

"There's an international team of researchers from the world health organization who arrived just yesterday. They are in wuhan to investigate the origins of the pandemic. The david tell us what we need to know about the investigation. What exactly are they looking for at this point in the pandemic listeners can be forgiven for thinking one. Oth- is this investigation turning a year off to the pandemic began in wuhan and the answer is politics. The answer is that china is spreading a story which it is spreading with incredible force and assertiveness that it is grotesque to say that china is to blame for covid that it made it even begun in wuhan that maybe it was first spotted a mojang because chinese scientists are unusually diligent but we have seen very senior chinese officials. Just kind of throwing out Random theories about where this. Boris may have begun whether it was india or italy or the uk or the american military. Maybe brought it in or maybe it began in several places simultaneously. Which was the line from the chinese foreign minister of the year. Anything rather than it that actually at the beginning of this for a month maybe two months there was a cover up by calmness officials who didn't want to admit that they had a new virus on their hands in wuhan. So now you have this team. From the world health organization it was supposed to be fifteen is now any thirteen because two of them were stopped in singapore because they had autism their blood when they were tested. Then i'll even on the ground there in quarantine now for two more weeks. There are no promises on the chinese side that they will get to talk to the chinese doctors. Some of whom certainly know about that. Cover up because they were that trying to get information out and were punished. Getting out so really. I'm afraid this investigation is anything. But the real independent scientific probe into whether this deadly disease began on how to prevent another one taking place. It isn't entirely political. Very controlled exercise grudgingly allowed onto the ground in a very limited way by chinese government determined to say that covered is actually a triumph for the chinese communist party. Because they've control the virus now within china's closed

World Health Organization team arrives in Wuhan to investigate COVID-19's origins

"Today, China announced its first covert 19 death in eight months. That news comes the same day, a team from the World Health Organization arrived in Wuhan to investigate the origins of the pandemic. You may remember the first cases of the Corona virus were reported from that city in December, 2019 Cluster emerged at a wet market where wild animals are sold, along with meat produce and other items. I spoke earlier with Dr Peter Ben embark. He's a scientist on the team. He was on a cell phone from Singapore. Where he was in quarantine before heading to Wuhan, and I asked him what his team will try to accomplish there. Gold with this mission is to help improve our understanding off the origin of the virus. We all know that various trump out from its natural Environment, impact population and then way had the detection of the first cases in Wuhan. But in between, we don't know We don't know what happened and that's what we want to try to. Get rid of your hell important Is it to be there in person Rather than doing this research remotely. It's important to be there because being there enable 55 concepts with Chinese researchers and counterparts. It also enable us to visit different sites. Visiting the market would give us a good idea off the dynamic within that market. We have done that for months. Now we have the actual meeting and Over the Internet, but it doesn't replace a faithful face interactions, smaller groups and retried in larger groups. So it's it's important to have that physical dynamic in a face to face environment. So I hear you referring to the wet market where some of the early cases first appeared. You say you'll be visiting there. I mean, this was a place where the whole world Had its eye on this market when the outbreak first started a year ago. When you get there, what will you do? What questions? Will you try to answer the market on how includes since last year? However, the records off what in a mountain that markets do still exist and have a lot of value in terms off. Understanding identifying animals that were brought to that market understanding what goods were brought into that market where they went out afterwards dispose the wholesale market. Mind do so. It was also serving the number for the markets in the city. And understanding what people who are working there. Where did they come from? Do they have any travel history too particular places that could give us some clues where the Some of them could have got the disease from outside to the market. So it's it has still a lot of value. Even a year after you know, there have been questions about whether China would even let you And your team into the country. The government has been floating the idea that the outbreak started in a different country. Do you think that Beijing can be trusted to give you access to what you need to do Your job? Yes. I mean, we are in on the way to the wall Hard now, So we have had many meetings with Chinese experts. Over the past few months, so that is the same interest to participate on do support this different studies. But of course and understandably day and others also interested to ensure that or the other news and all the study also conducted If the initial data On and results of studies indicate that there is a value in in looking elsewhere. We would, of course, also do that. But as always in these type of investigations, we start where the press cases where detective that was shot had December 2019. And we go from there. Every photo with the science studies tell us and that approaches also been agreed and supported by by China s O explain that a little bit more if he could, or are you going in assuming that the pandemic Started in Wuhan. Or how will you be able to even confirm that and frankly, why does it matter? When will the first cases they fix it with detective people will have in December 19. It doesn't mean that these were the first cases and remember that the papal defected where only severe cases we did not know that time. There was a lot off my cases a lot off security cases. And trying to identify these will be extremely interesting as well. They may be the one holding the clue to this. We have the first cases originated from on about the city. A case is that the door so it's also important to try to find all the places and other cases and the one that we're detectives in December.

You thought the bengals for joining us in the podcast today to be here for many of our listeners. dr bandou rose. Rice name has a long lasting romance and history going back to the first car built more than one hundred years ago but the motos business was separated out some time ago in nine thousand nine hundred seventy three. I believe and rose rises. Now in the business of pioneering the power that matters so tell us more about the journey business. That rose is in today and your role as the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose rice. Well has been rooted in engineering since we established in eighteen. Eighty four and this expertise has evolved the business to become one of the world's leading industrial technology company that we today and as the president for the region covering southeast asia pacific and south korea. I'm responsible for the regional strategy our external relations and governance of all our operations across the three businesses that we have civil aerospace is one of them manufactures of ever engines for large commercial aircraft on our regional jets and business aviation and we have decades of engineering expertise to take us through life through life. Service and support solutions for customers in the defense were market-leading aero-engines for military transferring control labor's including combat helicopter applications. I'm needles and power systems. Where leading provider of high speed reciprocating engines providing complete propulsion systems distributed energy solutions. So you can say that we. We have a diverse but volume that includes civil defense and power system and it is because w that our activities have tremendous impact on the world today and tomorrow we have always pursued clean safe and competitive solutions and we believe our technology will be fundamental in helping society transition to the low carbon future. And we're not going to do this on our own. We're going to do this. In partnerships and global partnerships to collaborate and co create solutions and with the regional hub. That we have here in singapore. We've developed collaborations with government agencies untucked -demia like a star and anti eu and us to pursue advanced research and technology in daytime smart manufacturing electrical systems. You touch on engine. That paolo many other products across the road strikes businesses. And i believe including aircraft of course and i imagine that you have been collecting analyzing the performance data of your engines for that case and in fact i see from one of your rolls royce presentation that you have been collecting data for some seventy trillion data points across twenty-sixth dimensions on your engines. So i think our listeners will be interested to know how you been. Harnessing that power data to make sense of this of information and into insight and action. And i believe in many ways is supplying the data to a machine learning throughout the life cycle of the engine from the initial stage of designed to manufacturing to maintenance repair. Overhaul that's right so we we've been applying data analytics for more than thirty years and using ai. With our real time engine. Health monitoring system but service w. lunch to back in nineteen ninety nine and our ai. Capabilities are deeply embedded into products and services so they aren't visible And not widely. Now we're able to monitor six thousand to eight thousand flights every day which is equivalent to monitoring three thousand engines in the sky at any one time so we have multiple sensors on board that continuously relay inflammation with were able to analyze five million data promises from our engines every day and we used to provide insights to our engineers for future development and services that we provide for our customers. But it's not just about the asian and the behavioral for engines. Current work includes applying a with a dedicated team that we have inside rolls royce school the day to labs to improve the risk management in supply chains predict market demand improved the efficiency of our operations and more recently nepal systems. Father of the business. We've been applying a on microbes making our industrial powered technology more reliable and sustainable and in the future we see a. I will continue to evolve. Play a bigger role especially as we saw increasing use of cloud based services which will be governed by data ethics framework and this becomes really essential and today more than two hundred projects that are starting to apply more and more of Framework so

"And if you're in Singapore this week, make sure to attend the six edition of the Singapore art book, fair, our own James, chambers spoke to the fares, director and founder, stay tuned for this week's addition of the stack. Three housing loan. This is the stack thirty minutes of print industry analysis. I am was to share coming up on the show a magazine for those who enjoy a little bit of boxing, and combat sports in general plus speak to the editors fashion title back along. But first, we started showing Singapore publishing midst painting and photography this weekend at the six edition of the Singapore art book fair during a visit to the line city. Our Hong Kong bureau chief, James chambers set down for chat with festivals director and founder renting to find out why art books deserve their own space in the literary calendar. I think the sangha provocation can sit in a weird on space in limbo, sort of the 'cause like you said, there lot of profess that happened in Singapore, and a lot of art fans, but I think the uniqueness of the Singapore Abba, claims that it sits in the middle and it presents artists and publishers, or exhibitors. Basically, the don't quite fit in an art, fair or a literary book fair. I also think that the book form is something that we need to learn to explore and understand a bit more in a sense that to treat the page or to, to treat the format of a book as a space, I the as an exhibition space or a metaphorical space as you flip through the books you understand the texture you understand the binding, the printing, and everything, and that everything was put together partially saw Tun of treat the book as an exhibition, and I think that there is no festival or no event like that in Saint Paul the represents artists that produces books and works in a medium like that. You founded the fair in two thousand thirteen and this is now the six addition, can you tell us what's new for two thousand nineteen? So for this year we have. Facebook department joining us, they're also hosting workshops and an introduction to regret printing. We have showcased by the book show. It's a photo book showcase, and there are also doing a showcase on rejected photos in your iphone that it's called dotty laundry, where the pick out the worst or what you think is the worst of the photos that you take on your phone this year. We have about ninety Exeter's which is thirty three jump from last year. We have music performances happening throughout the weekend. We have seen room that is coming back, that are quite a lot of things happening this weekend. You mentioned you got ninety exhibitors, and you have art publishers independent imprint and specialty bookshops coming to Singapore from all over the world. How would you describe the mood amongst this community? I think that the energy is still very much. Untapped in a sense that everybody, whether you're a maker, or you're an artist or your print maker, everybody gets excited when it comes to Chretien when it comes to putting their work and the ideas into a physical form. And I think that a lot of this is not yet fully explored, especially in a place for a lot of times. People are excited to show their words and they're excited to show what they have been working on throughout the Yar. But then, also when it comes to visit us and the audiences that we attract I feel like because there is no such festival like that in Singapore. A lot of them are always very tighted, and also because to get to talk to the artists and publishers face-to-face. Because usually when you're buying a book from a bookstore, you don't get to see all you don't get to talk to who makes it. So I think the fares are very good platform for that exchange when it comes to conversations, how much is the, the book fair, a showcase for beautiful art. Folks kind of an exhibition and how much is it a sales event to help drives sales books? I think for me I feel like first and foremost, the importance lies in the content and what we represent my job as the organizer, and as the director is to drive people into drive that interest down to the fair. But I try not to put the sales or the numbers ahead of it, you know, because they're kind of restricts, a lot of things that stops a lot of creativity. A lot of the times. So I do think that, while I try to focus on the curation and the content of the fair as a whole, I also believe that, yes, it is important to drive people down. But it's pretty I think it's pretty natural. I feel like when people see publications by local artists. Yeah, a lot of times they don't they don't feel like they are stingy with their money. I think that they are very willing to spend in the very willing to pay twenty dollars or thirty dollars to buy something that has hen meat. Or limited edition. They're certain genres of publishing that having a great time at the moment, like children's books, injuring very well house. Art books doing as an industry, and as a subset of, of publishing. I think specifically in Singapore, not very well to be honest. There is an a proper channel or a proper art book publisher in Singapore, due to many factors. The cost of printing is high. It's difficult to sell books in Singapore. Maybe anywhere on the world for that matter. Vento is going up. So bookstores at closing down a lot of different factors that kind of add to that. So I think that in terms of the resources we have it all the, you know, everything's just kind of set in place. It's just each of the avenues are each of the cog in the machine is just something's something's not setting. Right. You know. So it doesn't really flow as well as we like to, but I think that's where the importance of the problem fair is in, because we serve. A platform to represent publishers artists that are not able to otherwise sell that product sell their books, I do hope for it to be a bit more permanent because it's an event that happens once a year, you know, I do hope for there, to be your round either activities are educational programs, maybe even a library that is open to public that anybody can drop in and kind of just browse through the books, but that will take time, and I think any sort of change that we wanna see in the arts in Singapore will take time, you make you set aside a dedicated space at the book for physicians. And at least remind perspective, the whole Zine industry seems to be quite an Asian phenomenon could places countries like Taiwan and Zine insanely popular. They're producing so many of these beautiful booklets. I wonder from your perspective. And as organizer and founder of the book for since two thousand thirteen how you seen this kind of Zine publishing industry on, how healthy is it right now? I think more and more people, whether artists or art students are students general attorney into this informed because it's accessible, not just in terms of the creation, but also in terms of the consumption, I think it's easier for a nineteen year old music student who to create a ten peach sable bound publication as it is to send it to a printer go through offset printing print, a thousand copies. So I think it's the and that assessable t- that makes it so widespread. And so, vibrant, I do think that the format of the Zine form has progressed in a way that has kind of veer away from the original idea in the original pup us of in, you know. So you. No longer. Get one dollar two dollars means Zine today can be sold for fifty dollars in the production is the production value, is sky high. It's so much more. Well well-made, it's kind of progress in that we and I do think it's because of the.

"So in knows purely trumpian terms his mission was accomplished and we all expect that was going to be so personal diplomacy of course can be useful in its own right but the trump team just a few weeks before has laid out metrics that would have suggested that the singapore summit should have at least initiate a process that could result in arms control regime more rigorous than the iran deal and we are a very long way from the outcrop in the process of redefining this victory trump has also as steph suggested handed at enormous to kim on kim un's father and grandfather urine for the type of presidential level summit that he had in singapore the chance to meet the us president on equal footing indeed legitimated not only the regime but its nuclear arsenal by way of making no meaningful concessions and along the way he won the supposed cancellation of ussouth korean military exercises as well as the sort of general perception that he is a gregarious buoyant leader who everybody should take selfies with and find very entertaining as opposed to quite a bloody in brutal dictator who oppresses his own people meanwhile he's walking away with an economic situation that's likely to improve rapidly and is unlikely to turn against him meaningfully again in the coming weeks and months so the upshot of all this i think is that both men got the grandiose spectacle they were hoping for both men got relatively few concrete commitments with kim getting more than trump and in that way from one only as he defines diplomacy which is incredible pattern trie and very little substance to speak up on that cheerful note will wrap up mira steph thanks so much for joining us again i have the sense that we will do it again pretty soon our pleasure to talk to you.
