35 Burst results for "Sixty Four Percent"
Where is everyone driving?
"I recently saw a graph showing astounding rebound and gasoline demand returning almost a pre Kobe levels after a forty percent drop in April I just want to stop in the middle of this because I love it. So much I recently saw graph is not sentence like that is not the way that most people start sentences but here the indicator. So many sentences with I recently. Graph and we awesome you're like we've got to take this question whatever comes next we're in that's the indicator tuna. ANYWAYS, here's the rest of Jeff's question about why demand for gasoline is recovered so much after that huge drop in April with so many office workers still working from home many schools still online and airline demand way down how can this be anecdotally the roads do seem more crowded where's earlier going thanks thanks Jeff. So the most recent data we have shows that total vehicle miles traveled on roads and. Streets. So that's cars and trucks in July that was about eleven percent lower than the vehicle miles traveled in July of last year. So driving is still way down but jeff is right. That's nowhere close to the forty percent down that it was an April people are driving more than they were in the months right after the pandemic. So okay I mean as jeff put it like here's everybody going. We can't know where everybody's going, but we do have this one big clue with simply that more people are commuting to work again in May still early in the pandemic forty, eight percent of workers were commuting to work at least one day a week. But as the economy many places reopened and millions of people who lost their jobs were rehired by August it was back up to sixty four percent of people were commuting. That's all according to a monthly survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and also it is. Definitely true that there are more people working from home every day now than before Cova two and a half times more in fact but that same survey found that even now it's still only about twenty percent of workers. Now, that's a lot but it is still way fewer than the sheriff workers who commute to a workplace each week. So we can't say for sure where everybody's driving these days but we suspected a big part of the answer is to work people are driving to work. That's where everyone's going to work.
Lithium and Cognition: The Largest Study to Date
"Researchers and patients disagree about lithium patients often complain of cognitive dulling on it. But research finds that lithium has more neuro protective effects than other mood stabilisers lithium prevents dementia and it increases hippocampal on mic della volume as well as cortisol thickness. This study is the largest longitudinal study of cognition in lithium to date Catherine, burdock and colleague started with two hundred and sixty two patients with bipolar one disorder sixty. Four percent of whom were taking lithium. Their study had two key findings with the main limitation that neither were controlled first, they found no difference at baseline cognitive testing for patients taking or not taking lithium. This suggests that Lithium's cognitive effects are at least not much different from those of other meds bi polar the ones who are not on lithium had more severe, manic and depressive symptoms at the time of testing. Second they did Longitudinal testing on the patients who responded well to lithium and half of the ones on lithium did have good sustained stability on it when these patients were followed up about four months later, a third of them had improved cognition and there was no evidence of worsen cognition on the lithium. These encouraging results are in contrast to uncontrolled studies that show mild impairments on measures of processing speed, verbal learning, and creativity with long-term Lithium use today's study didn't actually look at creativity also in studies of healthy subjects, lithium doesn't seem to impair cognition. The researchers attributed part of the cognitive success they observed to the relatively low levels of lithium used around point six Sarum level, which is within the zero point six, two, zero point eight range recommended for maintenance therapy. I'm only aware of one controlled study cognition on lithium. It was a two thousand sixteen trial by Michael, burks group that randomize patients to lithium or Qu. Opinions. Sarah, quill for Mania and at follow up one year. Later, the lithium patients had better verbal fluency. The bottom line lithium likely has cognitive benefits but patients may feel slowdown Dole or uncreative on it. Stick to the lower dose range
Americans are Uncomfortable With Going Back to Church
"Survey. Oh. Good survey from taken by the American Enterprise, institute, has shown that sixty four percent of American churchgoers. Were somewhat uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with attending in person worship. Sixty four percent sixty four percent, in fact, what they found was basically only one group is Gung Ho on going back to Church and that's why evangelical 's. Right no surprise there if you know the news. Yeah if you add up there somewhat comfortable, and they're very comfortable's. It's. Sixty one percent of them are all about. Thirty. Four percent of them are very comfortable with going back to. Yeah because they because not only do they get to engage in the worship that is so important to them, but also they get to pony lives. Show us. What idiots we are. Yeah, Yeah so apparently. Even those who reported that their congregations offer actually offered. Worship last week, Fifty, six percent of respondents said they chose not to go. Yeah, and you know. I mean obviously like one of the hotspots repeatedly everywhere this Cova. Is seems like Church's just keep popping up like that was one of the first stories coming out of South Korea right was there was a church like a crazy colty church, but nonetheless. I think that's. Probably. But that was one of the hot spots, and that that was one of the big spreaders of Covid, nineteen and obviously we're seeing that in the United States. We're we're. We're just seeing it right like this is operatives These are the kinds of places that people who care about their health and their communities health. Should, be staying away from and a lot of Christians actually do agree with that depending on their denomination if you look at Black Protestants. And add their numbers up. Sixty eight percent are. Either somewhat uncomfortable or very uncomfortable. Well. Yeah, because it's because this thing is killing them in disproportionate numbers so. I can see why. Hispanic Catholics seventy three percent are are on the uncomfortable side. Really Yeah, yeah, that's that's. That's a number that means something. Yeah, and you're white mainline Protestants. It's sixty at three percent well. Yeah, I mean I'm you know talking to my mom hi mom, if you're listening. The other day, and she was saying that you know she. Attends, a free often attend an Anglican a Canadian Anglican Church She goes there mostly for the for the. For the free coffee I think anyway And music, doesn't she really liked the? It's the Camaraderie and the people. She loves the people there and I don't blame her for that tall any who? She said that they're not going to be going until like late in the fall at the earliest. Really. Yeah fantastic. That's not even an option, so I I mean they're. They're doing it right up there i. don't know about what what the Anglicans are doing down here, but. Well Lake. PISCOPO, here, so yeah. Definitely not Anglican. We broke off from that country. Diane exactly. Anyway. Yeah I just think it's kind of interesting. To contemplate re where people's this raises an interesting thing right like it does ask people where their priorities are right and this is something that is really supposedly really important to them going church right right and their belief in God and one of the things that they're God requires them to be active participants in their religious community. I would assume that's why they go right right and because why, like honestly, I mean God bless your mother and everything I guess friends. Get you there right like I can. But. Those people I think are trying to earn points in heaven. Right sure. And, so anyway, where was my? My point was my point. That's that's the new memoir. That's the title of your memoir now. I. Don't lose it that often. So my point is that. You know when you look at. Where these where people are putting their priorities, right? They're having to do this balancing act between their health. And God right and they're and they're and him parole needs for most people they're proving. They're proving that they are actually rational actors. They're choosing their health their choosing the tangible. They're choosing what is right in front of them over what? I mean the Evangelical. Christians there, the Rangers in this in this game right there. The good ones because they're not letting some dumb disease getting the way. They're God demand of them, and they're going in there doing yeah, and if they died they, they go to heaven and God's. Right and I heard that I've heard that quote. In meet. Why haven't I in articles I've Read I've seen that quote where people are just like like. Yeah, you know like if I get. It gets God's will. God's will be done. You know and it's like. Oh. Yeah, it's pretty. It's pretty
Page Gardner, Founder & President of the Voter Participation Center
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with page Gardner. The founder and president of the voter participation center the Voter Participation Center has helped over four point. Six million voters register and get to the polls and page card was a pioneer and identifying key voting bloc. She was one of the first to recognize unmarried. Women as a key political population one with significant and impactful political power. He's Gardner and I discussed what's called the marriage gap. That's the gap between unmarried women and married women in relation to their registration habits and voting behaviors. We also discussed this in the context of the corona virus outbreak. Given that unmarried women generally have less financial stability when compared to married women so without further. Ado here's my conversation with page partner Gardiner. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you very much great to be here so I was looking at your numbers. And since two thousand and three voter participation center you've helped around four and a half million voters registered to vote and get to the polls which is a massive amount of people millions and millions of people. And that's that's really incredibly impressive. But I'm just curious you know two thousand three. It feels like a lifetime ago and it wasn't but it feels like a lifetime ago and I don't think that voter suppression or voter issues for mainstream. Then what encouraged you to get into those costs to become interested in you know registering voters? So it's interesting that you bring that up. We have helped over point. Six million people applied to be registered to vote and hundreds of millions of people. Turn out but just sort of tripping down memory lane in two thousand I looked at the election of Gore versus Bush and noticed the difference between married and unmarried women in terms of how they voted and their share of the electorate and unmarried women. Married women voted very very differently with unmarried women voting for Gore in married women voting for Bush and I wondered about that and the share of the electorate of unmarried women was really really small in terms of their strength in numbers in terms of the voting eligible population. So that leads to lots and lots of research and the key question was was this sort of a just an observation or was there causality in marital status in other words does marital status determine whether or not you register and whether or not you vote. And after years of research and looking at things like articles from Census Bureau scholars to doing our own research it turns out that marital status along with age and race are key determinants of whether or not you register and whether or not you vote so then. The question became if unmarried. Women are unregistered and higher numbers than they should be. How do you reach them? So then what we did at the voter. Participation Center was pioneer mail based voter registration targeting particular demographic all across the country and that was really a revolutionary. We created for the first time the first list of unregistered people in this country. Because as you know no state keeps a list of its unregistered citizens so we had to create a list of unregistered unmarried women. Nail THEM VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATION. And then make sure that voter registration application got sent to the appropriate elections official. We did that after a number of years. And then it turned out that this process was successful with other underrepresented demographics persons of Color and young people. So that is how our program's evolved to include what we call the rising American electric which is unmarried women persons of Color and young people who are now sixty four percent of the entire voting eligible population in the country today. More than a hundred and fifty million people yet. They're underrepresented in terms of their registration rates. And they do not vote and they are not as large as share in. The electorate would suggest that they could be while. That's incredible actually had no idea that before voter participation that there was no way or no one was tracking unregistered voters. And now I'm curious. How did you do that? How did you track now? Who was not registered? Well after many many years and what we have done is refined a system where we match a voter file from state to a list of commercial data and then we delete the names of people or addresses that do not appear on the voter file and then we go through about twenty five other steps to insure the quality of the data. And after having done that we then mail out a voter registration application form that then. The person fills out and sends back to the appropriate election. Official
Recovery Strategy: Inside Look at Furniture Shoppers After COVID-19
"Welcome back to another episode of our skewed view. I N Emily and I'm your host. Today Chris will be back in a couple of weeks promise but until then we have another very special guest today. A returning champion on the podcast. We have got Keith Johns with us. Thanks for coming fatally so today we are going to get right into the details because we heard a lot of people some great questions after our first podcast and we want to answer those. So today we're going to talk about the two types of consumers that are coming out of this pandemic. We've been watching some trends in talking to a lot of retailers and things are a little bit different. So we're GONNA get into the details today with you First couple of housekeeping notes. We are going to start recording these on a weekly basis to give you guys as much information about recovery in strategic planning as you are asking for so if you have something you are looking specifically please send us an e mail at marketing at migrating dot com and we will take those requests and schedule a podcast about it so now already to get into the detail so keith. Let's talk a little bit about these two types of consumer. We've got two basic people where we've got people who are willing to come into the store after the covid nineteen impact and then people were still pretty cautious. So what do retailers need to know about the new type of consumer that's emerging from the quarantine so sitting outside this weekend thing about this topic and you know how best to bring some value to the conversation in enjoying Mother's Day belatedly. Great Mother's Day and took care of their mom And you know what we're watching here is something we haven't seen happen in one hundred years. It's the interplay between personal safety and economic concerns and then how is that affecting consumer spending behavior? So it's important. I think that d not only talks about what's going on at the retailer level the furniture industry level. But also we take a look higher up so I paged through Some research from Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Deloitte just to see what kind of questions they were asking wondering. When are consumers going to to come back out? What's IT GONNA look like when they do come back out? What behaviors are GONNA revert? Can we cannot any of the actually being just like they were before hand. Or which ones are you going to change? I think I think we're aware that a lot of them are going to change significantly and they're probably going to stay changed. Thought it was interesting. The Deloitte Research. It said that sixty four percent of the folks they surveyed which are international not just the North American international sixty four percent. Their decision making is still driven by concerns about family health. So folks aren't thinking about which store to go to the cells the best furniture really big decisions here if I go out if I take someone with me. How does that affect the health of my family? That's a big deal question. And you've got sixty four percent of people thinking about that now. This is changing every week and this research was a couple of weeks old sure. In addition it said forty two percent of those surveyed or thinking about delaying large purchases. Now not all furniture purchases are necessarily large but but they can't be and Only one in three right now are comfortable going to a store one in five to have something to compare it to are willing to fly which is probably perceived a slightly more risky given the the concentration of people so that's the framework that our industry is operating in and there's there's certainly Unique parts industry but broad that we all. We need to be aware that that's the kind of thinking that people are having to go through. And how do I adapt and plan for that? And that's where you know. At an industry level microbes is talking about the willing customer versus the cautious customer. And it sounds like emily. That's what you'd like to hear more about a rated Ivan Yellows. Divan this great okay. Great so the willing customer personas are changing. We've talked about this in various Micro d media. you're still going after people from a certain geographic area or a certain age who have a certain income level. Maybe even a certain propensity to spend. You know you've got your your persona within those personas. Do not have folks that are willing folks that are cautious as far as venturing out in this new new environment. We have the willing folks are going to want to come to your store. They're they're not. They're not gonNA stay sheltered in place as significantly as they had before but they are tightening down there shopping strategy. I think I mentioned this. Emily in the last podcast where there was the trend years ago. Was that Google search. Allowed you to shrink down the number of stores That you were going to go to made you more effective and efficient sop chopper. Spending all day going to furniture stores like you might have in the past. That's going to tighten down even more Maybe they had gone two three four five stores before they're gonNA target one or two stores. They're willing to go to the stores. Liquor spent a lot of time on those websites maybe even reacting with the staff the chat or email there. It's almost it's precision shopping right. They're going to look for the one place. They WanNa go where they can get what they need. Here's a shortcut product proximity in preparation. Those are the three PS to keep in mind to attract the willing Consumer Shopper. Do you have the right product? Are you close enough to them? They're going to go to a store but they're going to stay closer to home than they might have in the past and do you have a way to prepare for them to come visit you. Can they make an appointment with you? Have you shared with them? Your plans for what their experience will be like. As far as cutting us as far as how they'll walk into the store how the deal with your staff. How can they be assured? Even though they're willing consumers they're happy to go to your store. They still want their still that sixty four percent. That are very concerned about their health. How can you reassure them that? Your storage safety shop at so you're going to address the the willing side of the consumer the new consumer will call it a post cove. It

What's Your Opinion?
"What's your opinion? Hello this is Anthony J with an early sustainable futures report. It's Tuesday the twenty Munch Code Nineteen the current virus is in everybody's minds and increasingly affecting everybody's lives is the sustainable futures report relevant in these times. I need to know what you think. My opinion is that it is relevant because the climate crisis will still be with us after this viruses being defeated. Maybe Mao Tse. Maybe yes but one thing is certain on that is that we will have to rebuild our world when all this is over you may argue that how we rebuild it is a political issue and deny that both the corona virus and the climate emergency issues can be addressed and defeated only by international cooperation between governments last political someone once described the sustainable futures report as green but increasingly red. Let's not put labels on people's opinions. Let's look for pragmatic solutions to where we are. If you're not like what you perceive my politics you don't have to listen but I much prefer if you shed your views. Either in comments to the blog go direct to me at mail at Antony Dash Day. Don't come all we can discuss this online. Many of US forty feel powerless. Because the most we can do is simply to sit at home. What he is or indeed sitting at home without work on new experiences for many is going to be stressful. Thank goodness we have the Internet Social Media Web conferencing to give us some social interaction. I went to four meetings. Las Week without leaving my desk. I chatted with people in Germany South Africa on as well as in the UK. I'm sending out a conference invitation to all my patrons to take place this next Friday. The twenty seventh of March. Given that your in different time zones. I may propose to separate sessions. Surely this is an opportunity to get together. Decide what we can do together even if you can't take pot but a sitting with little to do take the opportunity to reflect on how the world will change once this is over and how you would like it to change on how we can achieve about change and so to this week's topic. This is what I intended to do. But it needs a lot more work so for the moment. This is just an overview. I said last time that the sustainable futures report has been too tightly focused on the wealthy west and so this time I was going to look at Africa. That's probably my biggest mistake. You could almost say that is no such place as Africa yeah. There is a continent called Africa. The world's second largest and second most populous continent offer Asia. We appear reveals that had extends to about thirteen point three million square kilometers which is pumped seven million square miles when it's midsummer in the north. It's midwinter in the south. It contains fifty four fully recognized sovereign states or countries eight territories and to de facto independent states with limited or no recognition. The continent is believed to hold ninety percent of the world's Kobylt ninety percent of its platinum fifty percent of its gold ninety eight percent of its chromium seventy percent of its tantalite. Sixty four percent of its manganese on one third of its uranium. The Democratic Republic of Congo has seventy percent of the world's Coltan a mineral used in the production of tons of 'em capacities addict devices. Such as cell phones the DRC also has more than thirty percents of the world's diamond reserves. Guinea is the world's largest exporter of bauxite and yet Africa's turtle knowing will gd pay remains behind that of the United States. China Japan Germany. The United Kingdom India and France as the growth in Africa has been driven mainly by services and not manufacturing or agriculture is being growth without jobs and without reduction in poverty levels in fact the food security crisis of two thousand and eight which took place on the heels of the global financial crisis pushed a hundred million people into food insecurity identity. Get sensible to ask. How does Climate Change Affect Africa? Africa is so diverse. I'M GONNA start with one country in follow up with others later. Nigeria which has the biggest population of any nation in Africa will be my first choice. But I'm going to defer that until after online discussion after we've agreed where. The sustainable futures report should go from here.

A decade of conflict in Syria
"As the Syria conflict enters its tenth year you an Emergency Relief. Coordinator Mark issued an urgent appeal for additional lifesaving outlining the devastating impact.

Tracking The Impact Of Coronavirus In Real Time
"News about the economic impact of the Corona Virus. Outbreak has been moving incredibly fast in recent days. Stock markets have fallen throughout the world. Economists are furiously trying to predict just how much the outbreak is going to hurt. Us economic growth and businesses are obviously really worried about how this is going to affect their employees. And of course they're prophets hopefully in that order. Hopefully that order But yeah it's really hard to know. Just how bad things are getting or will get for the overall economy. Especially if you're trying to follow this in real time and to understand why it's so hard we ask. Bill McBride who runs the website calculated risk about his favourite economic indicators. Bill is like one of our favorite indicator watchers and he likes the monthly employment report. Which is what we cover on. Jobs tells us how many how many jobs economies creating and he also likes. Housing starts which just tells you how many new houses have just started being built and finally he likes new home sales which is just a sales of new homes but all of those released after the months over with a you know employment port fairly quickly but it's it's got about a two to three week. Lag in in housing starts a new home sales there. There are a few weeks after the end of the month. For example. We won't really know what happened to jobs in late. February the impact of Corona virus on the job market until next jobs Friday in early April. And so you might think well fine. I'll just follow the news to find out what's going on and there. You might read that events like the big south by southwest film and Music and Media Festival in Austin Texas has been cancelled and that's going to hurt amongst a lot of other people. The service workers like the bartenders and the people who work in restaurants who depend on the big turnout for the festival to make their money but the problem with just using stories to understand what's happening in the whole economy is that those stories are usually about individual people or individual companies or events. So what do you do if you're someone who wants to track the effects of the epidemic for the overall economy in real time like say if you're the hosts of a podcast that does very well? Bill McBride has chosen what he refers to as high frequency indicators these are indicators at all come out weekly and they give a sense of how people and companies are behaving in response to the epidemic. Sell here. We go planet money high frequency indicator number one domestic weekly box office movie sales. So these come out once a week every Friday and they just tell us how much money people have spent to see at the theater. Does it counts discount popcorn. I don't think so. I think he says movie tickets. I feel like that's that's a little indicators matter that's true are you sneaking in the milk duds or are you buying them there. Yeah The obvious reason though that box office movie sales is a good indicator of the effects of the corona virus outbreak. Is it going to? The movies is recreational activity that a lot of people enjoy and since one of the worries about the virus is that you might catch it in a crowded room. People might start avoiding movie theaters and that would obviously show up as a fall in the box office numbers. So what are those box office? Numbers show so far. Well the box office sales shows us the movie. Theater's fine It's running at about. The same rate is last year. To specific people have spent about one point. Seven billion dollars on movie tickets this year just slightly less than they'd spent at this point last year but we also know that it's going to drop because some major movies are GonNa get moved. The most recent James Bond movie got moved to the second half of the year and it was supposed to open next week or in two weeks. So if blockbuster's move towards the end of the year that's GonNa that's gonNA cause it to drop. Plus you know we should see a demand drop as soon as people start really getting a little more nervous about the spread of disease so keep an eye out for that one and now high frequency indicator number to the hotel occupancy rate which comes out every Thursday and as the name implies the hotel occupancy rate is to share of hotel rooms in the country that are occupied that are being used by people staying in hotels and it would make sense for this rate to also declined if enough people are canceling their trips. Maybe they're afraid of flying or because enough businesses are no longer sending their employees to travel for business meetings or conventions. And here's what bill says is happening to this rates Real Hotel. Occupancy is actually started to soften a little over the last couple of weeks soft and you mean. It's gotten worse right. That's like Econo- of Jargon speak for. It's gotten yes it's economy jargon for worse after another words. The occupancy rate is lower than we had expected but only by a couple percent in the airport hotel area down by probably four or five percent over the last couple of weeks. Blow what we would expect at this time of year right now. About sixty four percent of hotel rooms are being used that is lower than this time last year. Plus the number has started to fall recently so there are signs that the virus has already started affect travel and the fact that occupancy at airport hotels has fallen by even more could be assigned that a big caused the decline is that all those companies are not sending their employees to travel for business meetings and bill. Mcbride has won more high frequency indicator that he recommends and it's probably the single best indicator for knowing what's happening in the overall economy rather than in a limited number of sectors and we'll share that one with you right after this quick break this message comes from.

Okay the last high frequency indicator for tracking the effects of Corona virus outbreak on US economy courtesy of Bill McBride. And it's this initial weekly jobless claims whenever someone loses their job they can file a claim for unemployment insurance with their state government and those claims get counted every week. And that gives you kind of feel for how many people are being. Let go because those are people that lost their jobs and are aren't quitting their jobs there. They've actually lost for some other reason. So that's been running around two hundred and ten thousand a week And that's a that's a very low number historically so that's something that we should expect to see start to increase. Maybe even in the data released this Thursday which will be for last week and I really expected in the following week where we're going to start seeing people laid off in the hotel in the crews and the airline industries so far these numbers show that the overall effects of the virus have not yet started to really damage the US economy even though some individuals and some businesses have already really started to fill these effects. But as bill says the story could change quickly in the next few weeks but the overall damage becoming more clear. And if that's the case then he expects that damage to show up in these three indicators. Weekly movie Box Office Sales Hotel. Occupancy rates and especially initial weekly jobless
On The Trail: Bloomberg's millions can't buy him many delegates
"The difference in spending striking because we were all talking about Michael Bloomberg coming into that was not joe. Biden's game spending and visits. You look at places like Oklahoma and Arkansas. Where we're Michael Bloomberg spent millions of dollars. He he visited those states. He thought he could win. Even Minnesota as well I am ending my campaign and endorsing Joe Biden. The Joe Biden. Spit little to nothing in those states. Walking Away with victories and all three. It's pretty incredible but he also wins battleground states. And that's what Democrats are GONNA care about heading into November places like Minnesota places like Virginia places like North Carolina. We saw places that seem to start off the way we thought they were and then with change throughout the night. Why was because early voting? What wasn't you know like in Maine? We're GONNA have to break down the data to figure out. Why because Maine is a state you think would naturally go to Bernie Sanders and let's not forget. Elizabeth. Warren and Joe Biden is in the lead in Maine when electability is most important Joe Biden. Taking the lion share sixty four percent of the voters. Who showed up today said Joe Biden? At some point voters decided. Okay who do we want to take on president trump and for a lot of the country on Super Tuesday? That person was Joe
Boy Scouts bankruptcy filing stalls local sex abuse lawsuits in Kentucky
"Did you hear that? The Boy Scouts of America's filing for bankruptcy. Yeah and the story I've heard is. This is a in the hubbub and what people think online is stop themselves from basically losing everything because of sexual harassment lawsuits. Southern an article. But I don't know I think that's I mean. Can they really file for bankruptcy? I mean we're not chapter four chapter fourteen. Don't all like PG do it stop? Might other question was this because a lot of the people were upset. They're letting girls in and I don't think it was a sexist thing. I thought it was the fact that a lot of people saying. Hey make a female version of the. That's a copy of the boy scouts. We need boy spaces. That was also the one thing. I was wondering if this was this was partially because they couldn't have won the lawsuits because people withdrawing from the boy scouts. I've heard a couple of people complain but I don't know anybody who have kids in boy scouts to actually know if it's a big deal or not. I have no idea. So that's just conjecture. We have a friend that has two of our kids in boy scouts. Really like he's your name on on that Yeah she's got them both in there and they seem to like it. But so I'm sure it's GONNA affect a lot of the KIDS ACIDIC. How many members I think it was like a crazy amount of members. Like eight hundred thousand. Nearly eight thousand yes. It is two point. Two million youth members and eight hundred thousand volunteers and eight thousand leaders have been accused of sexual abuse. Wow a tenth volunteers. That's how easy number. Just let that sink in so eight thousand so that's hold on so if that's the tenth of their volunteers. I'm trying to find a calculator. My phone's having issues. So eight. Thousand Eight Thousand Eight Thousand Times Point Zero one zero. No that's not right. It can't be eighty people. I did that wrong. Eighty percent is what you're thinking so yeah it's not eighty percent yes so it's a tenth of their yes. It was like eighty no one hundred people. What are you doing here? The math like what if out how. What's the percentage of the volunteers at their actually? Oh a sound stupid but right now I'm really tired so my brain's not working. I don't think I could do the math. Go thousand people what sorts one hundred people. It's ten percent of their total volunteer force. Sixty four percent. Ish that's crazy. Yeah Yeah I I'm not surprise. Though I mean part of my question is where I mean. Well part of my question is how well do they vet these people you know? And and by the way not everybody quite a bit of their volunteer. Lonzo because you have to be a boy scout boy scout leader do you. I believe the other questions. What's the definition of sexual harassment? Here is it is it is it. Funneling is at flirting. Is it being a Patriot dome now but I mean that's that's the housing and by inappropriate? I'm reading meaning anything for making a dirty joke to you. Know touching so I'm just trying. I'm just trying to figure out what like what does it actually mean sexual harassment. At least in my opinion has a fairly broad. Oh it does a meaning. Thank you bill. Clinton Insert Funny Clip here of Clinton saying I did not have sexual relationships with that woman How crazy. I can't believe it was that that many people that's an insane amount of people and I actually don't blame them from doing. I don't know I mean one thing because I do think the boy scouts actually does a good thing so I don't blame them for doing the chapter eleven or fourteen or whatever it's called but on the other hand don't these people deserve a little calm. Come up for what they went through. Especially if it was like sexual harassment lately you know touching etc like something that could cause somebody permanent damage. I actually don't blame them for wanting a couple of bucks so I mean I don't really know I don't know how I feel. You know I mean what do you think I think all this stuff? You stop if that means the boy scouts file bankruptcy and disappears. You know I mean there's a lot of good and bad that go along with it all and all. I have no interest in boy scouts. It's never been I mean. I think I think at one point my try. My parents tried to get me in but they had no boy. Scouts had no interest in me which I think is hilarious Yeah I don't know I mean there's they'll always be room in places that take up the slack if that's something that's needed because I do think that type of thing is needed but yeah I mean if it if it goes away because of all somebody not doing their job I well. I do think it's a big loss. I think it's you know less than has to be learned. Yeah and you know I mean there's as I said there's a lot of good that goes along with it but all in all. I just think I think that granted other than doing what you will. You suggested which is vetting. All of their Volunteers which is eight hundred thousand people to bed. I think that I think that they should either. I have to have a better screening process if they have to go bankrupt to get this put into practice. Sure but I think at this point. It's I mean the harm has been

Democratic debate: Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren
"Craig Gordon runs our political coverage based in DC's up here in Manchester with us as as we watch and wait it gets closer as the vote goes up Greg anybody like you has I know you have a list of stories in your head right now that you want your team to get out there and and right tomorrow the days ahead give us a sense of that what do you what what intrigues you which is yeah I mean I think for the Bloomberg news audience a story that we're going to have tomorrow morning is about the flow of the class of lives with Warren I mean again if we've been sitting here a year ago having this conversation we would have probably been talking about her as a potential front runner actually in this state done well here a nationally had done well so the polls had a little bit of a moment there Wall Street obviously not the biggest fans of Elizabeth Warren and so her classes been quite spectacular the and I think for our customers in particular our listeners and readers that's a good that's a person they want to know more about it seemed like she I think what our story kind of tries to get at is you know I have a plan for that well we have a plan for everything it's very easy to start poking holes and she made some real missteps on Medicare for all where you know Bernie Sanders I was gonna cost would cost and I can worry about and she had to go over the number and never was very good and she's a little bit evasive and I think they were like wait a minute I thought you were like the one with the plan I think you're the one with all the all the tease cross and I's dotted and when that fell away she just didn't have a lot to kind of fall back on she also spent a lot of money and digital advertising less on TV advertising that's you know a surprising to me a little bit twenty twenty the TV advertising still move the needle was a quite a lot I don't think she ever quite did that as much as she should how many governing centers there is there's just like only so much oxygen in the race for two very liberal candidates who you know if you put their positions on paper there the pretty much identical in they're very different personally in the different people and and their approach to politics but you know if you have the Sir two choices it made it hard for a warm to find the oxygen to kind of take kind of co exist with when Sanders and then in that race you know earlier tonight I think it was Kevin who said Kevin so really who said he thought that were worn started we were talking about you know policies but he said he thought it was wind Bernie and she team you know to blows on stage and one went up and one went down yeah I it was it was one of the first and most ugliest kind of interactions where she basically said the Bernie Sanders and told her to private mean that women can't win the presidency Bernie said of course the night that we all got to listen to that hot Mike moment where you kind of challenge them for any kind of pushed back and it was kind of it was like to just like her to watch you know it's sort of a I don't know who said what I could imagine pretty my system like that or criticism misinterpreted to be like that but yeah I think there was there's so many supporters it could go either way that I do think that my turns people off to to warn yet to your point and and you've just you know he here Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have basically the the the same position when it comes to Medicare for all and it you know burning a test the question because you have going to cost you know thirty trillion dollars in Elizabeth Warren basically cover the same answer yet she tanks and he searches I'm Bernie is that I think burning the problem for war as you try to get a little bit to the left of Bernie Sanders there's no room to the left Bernie Sanders again here there's no room there yeah and so when she sort of tried out Medicare for all him when his answer is essentially up thirty four trillion of breaking taxes and that's what's going to happen for a lot of people wild maybe some people don't want to have the taxes raises a very clear answers seem like he understood his position and he was a little bit like take it or leave it like that I think this will we need to for the country Medicare for all I think give raise taxes to pay for it and I think it's an important thing to raise the taxes I think warrant kind of try to dance around it a little bit you took a little while even come up with a number of was I was about the same thirty four trillion as you say but in that sort of sense of like I I I was use the word evasiveness like wait a minute like I thought again if I knew what the plans at that you're the one that was the truth teller here and I mean I feel like he's being very clear and you're being very evasive in our like that and I just think that when you run against your own narrative that's right exactly so most interesting into politics he had built a whole narrative of being the person with all the answers the most important question I would argue which is Medicare for all health care's thirty some percent since the one topic your New Hampshire tonight what is it I suppose if you don't have your answer straight on that that's that could be for you know you know listen and we were going to refresh these numbers sixty three percent now reporting of the eight PM organ using a P. numbers as Craig says that's what bloomer goes with here some of the networks maybe calling this but it's tightening of sixty four percent now Bernie Sanders has twenty five point nine percent of the of the vote the judge has twenty four percent that's what that's one point nine percent difference in culture in a twenty point one so here's the big what if Craig what if Pete booted judge wins the New Hampshire primary have we put to rest some of the murky miss that we've been muddling through tonight not one bit yeah I mean I sent out one yeah I mean look you could make an argument that if if it works are worn surging magenta repeating Sanders so now you have you know again we have like thirty two lanes left not a part of the parties burning kind of come to be there and you've got to eventually three cameras in the other they're going to get out and that's nobody should feel they should feel good about her win tonight her third place finish right that's structuring for more surprising to us but it just means you know on to the bat on the South Carolina the races the marking the race of fluid and anybody hoping for answers you into this a moment ago you you want your kids go to a store and lives with one let me re site this Elizabeth Warren no sixty four percent of the vote in nine point four percent Biden eight point four I mean the threshold here's fifteen in they were hovering in the you know the low teens now they drop below ten is this is got to be even more surprising than one would imagine yeah I mean the Biden collapses been kind of a parent since I was a very poorly there came here it is you know a lot of energy as events and they their whole you know vine campaign says it's you know the classic marathon not a sprint the first concerts reporting South Carolina matters we can't decide the nominee and those of African American Hispanic or get a chance to have their say all fine points but if your entire calling cars let's ability I'm the one that could be done trump and you're getting not even ten percent in the state that you should do fine in that that's just that's just crushing crushing move or is there anything Sanders can do to broaden his appeal to the the moderates the Democratic Party I mean he's been really leaning hard lately on this electability argument that goes back to what I said like I'm electable because not because I'm the moderate you know the kind of the middle of the road person but I'm the person that can inspire the energy in the youth and other kind of in the laughs and again I've you could buy that he could not buy it but it's the case in these kind of sticking to it so that is his case I think he needs to go beyond being just the guy with the crazy hair and he's a socialist and get all of to being a person like no no I can actually beat down from like Joe Biden thought told he could he's couldn't clearly warned that chance rejects Chrysler seven years only ran a small town in Indiana for a few years I'm the guy on the person can do and again he he started to give his argument that direction slightly and I think he the more he leans into that if you get people to buy it that we you can't just state he's got a movement going he's got he's got to have a why just like any of these things that I was saying when something I have to win something right so you know and second tonight after blue judges are like wait a minute I thought you were the guy yeah trump so you know that that doesn't exactly hold that argument but he has tried to broaden his hit the case it is making the voters and I think it was some over by you is there any measure other than these primaries are these caucuses where we can see that Bernie or anybody for that matter is picking up support yeah the one place is money and he's he's always fundraise always man's very strong twenty three seven million I think in the last quarter he does it again it's a small donors people and write a little check drop an envelope whatever that is a real again coming to rally signs support writing a check men's real so warm and I was the need money could be in politics but also as a way to show people like yes I have the sort of army of grassroots folks that are willing to spend their hard earned money to help me get elected president that's a big deal yeah you you said something that was interesting a few moments ago you said if Amy coe charges so we don't have her supporters be project has his supporters and you said you know Amy Klobuchar hadn't done so well and Pete had picked up a few more of Amy's of voters you know Pete could have check could be the one winning tonight are those the supporters of Bridget clover charm of supporters are they one of the same I mean is not exactly but I do think they're looking for I mean in some ways they're looking for who is the anti Bernie a lot you know we've we've all watch the debates we're judging call which are muted first more vociferously in the later debates of said Medicare fraud be a disaster take away feels private health insurance you know maybe when I was love our health insurance but I mean a lot of people are pretty calm for that program to get for the employer the idea that I was going to take it over so I think for a lot of voters Bernie just seems I use the word like radical you know just sort of seems like a little bit out there on the left in the whole thing the insurance thing is a very clear differentiator between us canceling as if you have private insurance I'm not sure ready to throw that over for a government plan where you know you're coming up prisoners to be able to work that out so they're not identical I mean I'm sure we know in these covers Gessle this form for women obviously people to jazz for something he gave you know presidents can get this far as certain as for those camps others there are variations within their base but a lot of it is I don't like the direction Bernie says we take this country and I get by some of the can first stop Bernie and then the truck Greg we it's been great conversation but we know you have things to do we're gonna let you go as much as I hate to
Harassment in Online Gaming
"Over two billion people play games globally in the US sixty four percent of online population play video games in games a much more than just games live. MULTIPLAYER Games are social platforms forms where people interact chat and sometimes get harassed. According to a poll made for the Untidy Formation League in two thousand eighteen Americans reported only gaming as the fifth place where the experienced harassment online just after facebook. Luke twitter youtube an instagram. Welcome to good code the weekly podcast on ethics in our digital lives. My name is Sheila Eh. I'm a visiting journalist at Cornell Tax Digital Life Initiative and I'm your host a few weeks ago. I sat down with Daniel Kelly in his office office in New York City. He's the associate director of the Center for Technology and society within the Anti Defamation League he leads the center's work to fight hate bias and harassment in online gaming to be clear he's job is not to look at the contents of video games he studied side conversations. That gamers have with one another wild plane. I began by asking him to explain where exactly these conversations happen. This is a question that I get a lot especially for people who aren't familiar with these kinds of conversations which is sometimes Parents right right when you're talking about communications online games. They can happen usually in two places so the one place would be an text chat so that would be a chat box that usually lives at the bottom of your screen and you can type in different words and you know dialogue. Often people communicate that way. They're playing playing as they're playing. They are if they're on a PC. They're typing if they're if they're on an xbox or playstation they could be there could be shortcuts or there or they could be typing in with their with their control or other things and for those cotton's of communications. You can use the same. A well trod techniques for detecting Abuse that you can use on facebook twitter you have the same model of being able to use machine learning or AI and human review to we able to flag content. There's sort of a baseline to start from in terms of the content. Moderation that happens there the area which is much more of a wild west which exists in games and and in some maybe perhaps live streamed social media But is a big part of games is voice chat so in addition to people typing in some things that they say to people people are actually speaking to each other stranger. They're speaking to each other again as they're playing as they're playing commencing on what's happening. Yeah exactly commenting on what's happening openings. Sometimes being competitive sometimes crossing the line into being hateful and sometimes being you know supportive and encouraging and engaging with with the people as as they're playing the game but when we talk about voice chat the methods to do content moderation in live voice chat are super nascent. And and so. There's a real need. I think to push research and advocacy forward for that because as bad as things can be in the text environments we don't even have the framework to address them in or the tools to address them in voice chat. And so yeah. We'll get back to that. That's something I want to ask. Ask You about Just to understand do most gamers take part in these chatrooms Whether text are vocal is that is that like a wide. I practice the AARP which is an organization that is geared towards Folks who are fifty plus did a survey of Gamers who are art fifty plus and they've found that thirty three percent of Gamers who are fifty plus who play online play with other adults play in in a way that they're communicating with the people they're playing with and so if you can imagine that you know a third of Of older adults are are communicating. When they're playing these games? I don't know there's been a similar measurements of other age groups but I could imagine that the the amount the degree to which if it's part of their game plan part of the way they interact in and see the platform would would be significantly more. I think at the game developers conference in March of last year the CEO of epoch which makes fortnight which is a very popular game talked talked about fortnight and games like it being sort of forms of social media that the folks who are playing these are playing them as games in of themselves but they also are means to build community and to connect with one another. And you know these sort of continuous free to play. Online Games are a form form of social media social platform yet social platforms. And they're places where people are communicating regularly. Our focus right now is really Focused on games as social platforms there. I think there's been a lot of good work in Games as media looking at games in the same way that you you might look at movies in terms of a representation. whose stories are being told? How has that story being told but I at least in the sort of NGOs space this and certainly in the sort of traditional historical civil rights organization space? There hasn't been as much work looking at games as social spaces. uh-huh you were at rights con last year. Which is one of the biggest Tree conferences on human rights and technology and there was no workshop on gaming and that you were surprised prices. Do you think that's changing that people are realizing that Games are social platforms. Is that slowly taking into consideration thing. I I think you know. I think it is starting to become more of a consideration. There's just a lot of educating on both on both sides from the gaming industry and from civil society about how how do we find a way to work together But I think yeah. I think it's urgent. A game industry is larger than film and music combined In terms of the amount out of money that it makes so this is a an urgent space for folks to be looking at there are people who are specifically in the game space. That are focused on us. But it hasn't yet. I think permeated the larger discourse in the same with the social media has for large NGOs. I share. Let's get into the report you rotor a report in July two thousand nineteen. That was cold free to play hate harassment and positive social experiences in line gaming. And you we'll get into the details of it. I you start your report by saying something quite positive which was surprising. The first result that you shares at eighty eighty eight percents of adults who play online those multi-player Games In the US report positive social experiences while playing online and there is even a non trivial amount of US adults who report positive experiences in online should gain so probably some of the most violent when so this is sort of counter intuitive even silver lining to start a report on harassment Shuzo. Why why why was it important to have that at the beginning? We're still in kind of a moral panic place with games James In the way that perhaps we were with comic books in the fifties where something terrible happens in the world that everyone wants to blame it on video games and so my experience talking to folks about these issues has been that when you start from this place of video games are bad. People who are are working in the space with Love Games who games are part of their identity part of how they interact socially it just shuts them down and I. I don't think it's a path towards change. If if you just say that x form of media all books are terrible right. Miguel necessarily say that and so it was important for me. The report port is focused on games as social spaces so both the positive side of things and and I think it was unclear as when we ask these questions rate we we wanted to get to some level of understanding of our game online game spaces are are they as bad as you know people the worst of the worst say hey they are right. I think some folks pleasantly surprised that that there were so many people who had positive experiences is no measurement and because there is this a reactive mode to video games. I wanted to start from a place of like. There are many positive experiences that people have in online games and there's also reality of negative experiences that need to be engaged with be dressed because then it opens the conversation of. How can we fix this? Not just get rid of those

"To forgive college loan debts. Melinda. Thought it was an awesome idea. Yeah. All right. Do I have that wrong? You have that wrong. I hate to correct. You are wrong. I just I can see how people do think, it's an awesome idea. Because when you just hear, oh, it'll just be the rich paying for it. It won't affect anybody. That doesn't make over however, many millions. They were going to say is wrong. I mean that sounds great. But it's not gonna work that way. And then on top of it. I'm a little insulted. I paid for school. Well, the Harris polling group has been asking Americans and sixty four percent support. The Elizabeth Warren plan forgive all of the college loan debt, and they say you can find support in every demographic even fifty two percent of Republicans say they support this plan sixty percent of Americans who identify as males support it sixty seven percent who identify as females support the Elizabeth Warren college forgiveness plan somehow. It's no surprise. I'm on the outs of that. Always on the outside of all of these were the only one is. I remember that day every texter in I think every caller was opposed to it. Am I right on that? Well, you are because of the same reasons that we say that a how are you going to get the wealthy to to do this once they figure out the loophole in the system they're going to use it and put their money elsewhere. So that they don't have whatever the I can't even remember the mount was that you had to be above for them to tax to most of the tax that came in most of the calls that came in spoke to well, are you going to refund the back the money I paid when I went to college, and that's not part of the plan. No that is not part of the plan. And I understand why you can get sixty four percent of Americans to support this. It sounds great. When you say re are going to send you to college for free and the wealthiest of the wealthy or going to pay for it. So I will never feel the pain of this only enjoy.

"And you know, we have the whole world now at our fingertips twenty four hours a day. And that includes when you're at work, and you know, your boss can't be looking at you all the time. So if you're somebody who works with a computer, and maybe you don't even maybe you're not an office. Maybe you are moving around and you have like. Some kind of a portable computer. Maybe you use a laptop as you go from place to place or wherever you're working. And you say, you know, I'm gonna take a few minutes here. And I gotta check that thing. Because I know that there's you know, there's a maybe there's an auction on EBay that. You know, what's coming do this afternoon? And I want that thing. So I'm going to have to do that while I'm gonna pull over to the side of the road rather than make this next call, and that's what I'm going to do eight hundred seven three six three six six six. We really want to hear your stories about that. Because this is an interesting thing, we are I guess the first generation of people who've been able to do this. So are we doing it? I mean is this something that's going to be as generally accepted and open, and you're not going to have to hide it have you ever seen? Somebody like you t tell their boss. No, no, I'm I'm working when everybody knows that they weren't was that funnier did the person get into trouble. And are those things changing in the workplace? Our number is eight hundred seven three six three six six six our holiday gift to you is we pay for the phone call. You just have to give us a little bit of your time and your thoughts. So for all of you who might be thinking about actually doing a lot. Out of your online shopping when you should be working. We have Jim Johnson with us this morning. He's a senior vice president with Robert Half technology. Jim you've been studying people who do this and you've been studying their bosses. What are you finding out? But we're finding a lot of things. One of the most important things are finding is sixty four percent of the people that are sitting at a desk. This holiday season are planning to do some shopping online. And and frankly, most managers are not big fans of that. Now that shouldn't be a surprise that the people who hire other people to work for them are not fans about that. So what what is the is it primarily risk of losing productivity in the workforce. That's one piece of it. Number of companies are at a peak season, if it's a retail organization or or healthcare organization, or what have you? This is open enrollment there. There's a lot of things they're trying to take care of them. So they're wanting to keep people productive. So that's a piece the other pieces. The fact that online security is is also a big issue. And so making sure that if you're going to go online that your systems are set up to handle any potential packs or fishing attack. So this is a pretty big survey that you did a twenty eight hundred workers more than twenty five hundred decision-makers IT decision makers, and you went into twenty eight major US markets to do this. This is a pretty comprehensive study. So apparently, some employers don't mind if people do that the company policy actually allows you to shop online while you're working which I found I was surprised by that. Well, and it goes back to the point you brought up about productivity that I if I allow them a certain amount of time or or maybe I'm not even watch. But I'm giving them the okay to go online, and and maybe take advantage of a sale, or if they get an Email that shows up that they want to quickly take advantage of a daily special that might keep them in the office. It keeps them from leaving at a lunch break or throughout the day where they may become more unavailable. At least at this point. They're at their desk and are less likely to be gone for an extended period of time. Did your survey kick up any feelings on the part of some workers? Well, I'm sitting here. I've got to get this work done. I'm on deadline. I'm killing myself, and I'm looking to cubicles over and there's Bob with his feet up, and I can see that he's looking for gifts and just goofing off basically defined that there's some resentment that builds when people do that, you know. I mean, people are people that I if I don't choose to do that. I've got work to do. I've got deadlines that it may be that somebody else completed their tasks, and I haven't but realistically is they're probably having a distraction. And so I think it's important for managers specifically to make note of those who are. I think upholding the behavior I'd like not necessarily to shame others. But folks are doing a good job. People are working people are staying focused. Maybe take a little bit more time to to go over and talk with them. It is that kind of one minute manager approach where you're you're praising the right behavior and hoping others Michael jeeze, maybe I should get back to work. All right. Thanks, Jim Johnson. Stick around. We may want to get back to you in a few minutes. That's a Jim Johnson senior vice president with Robert Half technology, and they've been studying this whole thing of people shopping for holiday presence while they are at work. There's a breakdown by cities the top ten cities with the most workshop IRS, and I have a feeling that that's going to be one of those terms that maybe next year or the year after this time of the year when we talk about new words in the dictionary. I think workshop or if it's not in the dictionary already somebody look that up for me, and we'll see if workshop is in the dictionary. If it's not now, it soon will be okay. So the number one city where people are going to be workshop is loss. Angeles fifty-six percent of people in Los Angeles. Where I work a work. We'll be we'll be workshop and I'm wondering if that's because it's hard to drive around in Los Angeles. You have to get in a car and.

"Acis laptop running windows ten, and I'm getting a message on the battery icon that it's sixty four percent plugged in not charging, and yeah. Have you tried other chargers and other cables? No, I had done that. Yeah. So generally that's what it means. I mean, how old is the laptop? It's going about ten years. Holy cow. When you said windows tan, I'm thinking, can't be that old ten years. Okay. So there's two possibilities, cheap one is that the cable or the chargers is born out, but after ten years, the sounds like that might be the batteries worn out. Lithium ion batteries, which is what powers our phones, our laptops, and our cameras and everything. These days even powers, tesla, lithium, ion batteries are great, but they have one little law. They are only the only work for certain number of power cycles. Power cycle is fully charged fully discharge, actually the other way around fully discharged and then fully charged. That's one cycle and mostly theme ion batteries have maybe about five hundred full cycles that they can do. And after a certain amount of time, they just won't take charge anymore in. So that could be the source of the not charging as well. So there are windows. There are programs you can run that will look into your battery and tell you what the batteries doing. Actually windows ten even has this built in. I don't know if it would be enough information for you. To figure out if your batteries broken, but I'm gonna tell you how to do it. Are you ready? Might want to write this down? You're going to go to the command line for this one and you type two words. I'll give you the details on how to get to the command line a second, but just the general gist is you're gonna type two words. The first word is power fig, but but it's spelled funny POW e. r. c. f. g. that's one word POW e. r. c. f. g. that's a program called is the power figuration program, and then you're going to give it a parameter, and that will be slash battery report all one word. So it's it's power configured slash battery report and you get to the command line. Actually, it's pretty simple. You can just hit the windows key and and start. I wonder if you could start typing me see the this'll work if I just type it in. Yeah, I think you can. So without doing anything, hit the windows key type POW r. c. f. g. batter slash battery report, and that's gonna probably tell you it's a command line. Yes. If you do it the way I just told you to do it, that's not good you. 'cause the window does. It does run the windows closed immediately. So type hit the windows key type c m d which will open up the command prompt, and then you could type those two words what will tell you is a little bit about your battery. And in most cases it'll tell you if the battery has any life left, what percentage of charged capacities left? That's what you wanna know. And if it's down to ten percent or less, it's not going to hold a charge. Let me see. And that means you need a new battery. Now, in most cases, you can on the older, you know, modern stuff. I'm just looking at this news, extra skinny, laptop guy was talking about there's no way you're going to go in there and change the battery. That's gonna be glued in same thing with most latte, apple laptops, but an older Acis almost certainly you can replace the battery. So look on the bottom. See if there's a latch or lever that you can open up and take the battery out. Now here is another thing. Now, if you don't mind, you don't have to have the battery if you don't care if you take the battery out usually and just keep it plugged in, operate, just fine. And then so now you have a desktop computer. It might be a little hard to find a battery for ten year old computer, but you can maybe go on EBay because lots of people have the old computer. Maybe they're selling off the parts. That kind of thing. Okay. All right. Yeah, I'm sorry that that's happened. But man, you got a lot of life at a thing. I know telling me time to get another on this, if it's all running fine able to get windows ten on it and your and your comfortable without operates to make sure you keep windows.
