Marketing To Gen Z

"Takes for joining me today Sarah. Much for having me Dan. I am thrilled and we are going to be talking today about marketing degen's E.. So just so critically important. So I would really love to start with asking you to. Explain how Jansy e customers are different than a millennial customers. Will first of all the Gen Z. and not many people know this but they are the largest living generation today. So fifty one percent of the world population is under twenty five today and it is a whole new world out there. They are changing the game for just about every industry out there and I mean who if the stereotype is true man that's a lot of brunch. But so they're different than millennials for few key reasons, and basically it's for a few reasons about why they. Different different things that happened while they were growing up. And the different environmental factors, different parenting styles, that kind of thing. So the first key reason why they're different whether or not the same that there was a huge shift in parenting styles. So we went from terms like helicopter parenting, Tiger parent to a new kind of parenting style with the other twenty, five, hundred, twenty, six, crowd called tech parenting, and with instead of doing things for their kids parents were. A little more hands off they were teaching their kids, how to find things for themselves online using technology, and they basically have re as a result they've raised a generation who's a little bit more independent than millennials, but also what they did almost inadvertently that they scared. The. Crap out of them about. Anything. That could go wrong online everything from online predators to identity theft and everything in between, and so you've also got this generation WHO's more risk averse millennials? So. In addition to that, they were raised unlike millennials who are raised in a boom economy. This generation was raised in a time of war and recession they were born after these. These are post nine eleven babies. They were born at a very different time and they have seen parents. Lose jobs, take pay cuts, clip coupons budget in a way that millennials never did while they were growing up. And so are actually far more fiscally conservative. I will say I I. Say that term and people go oh so they're cheap they're gonNA love coupons. That's not totally true. The actually just want more value for their money and they're very concerned about the value for their money. They're not a I wouldn't call them cheap this as a whole generation, but I would say they're more concerned with okay. What am I going to get for my money they're not? As concerned with coupons and sales and promotions as past generations. They actually are much more interested in social engagement then coupons or sales, which is the first generation to really be to really take that on. Their hungry because they were raised in a recession because of all the being fiscally conservative all of that. They are hungry for work They're not you know. Coming out of school in going on at, take off a year and go explore Europe or. Nobody's doing that right now. But really like for the past few years this generation as they're entering the workforce, they're just ready to get to work. They're hungry for work their side. GIG savvy they have like multiple jobs they've probably they're very entrepeneurship and fact sixty, one percent coming out of high school say that they don't want to work for somebody else they want to start their own businesses. So it's a huge. Shift in just a very it's a much more entrepreneurial mindset and they're not waiting till the get out of college either to start their businesses are just starting them in high school in college like they're just doing it on the side because the technology is so readily available.

Friendships at Work and Beyond with Shasta Nelson

"I've been studying friendship now for twelve years really specifically, I passionate relationships in general but I found myself looking at US some studies coming out talking about specifically at a time for women, how significant their friendships were to their health into their happiness, and yet I was looking around at all of us being so obsessed with the parent child relationship and the romantic relationships, and like we were buying thousands of books and we were like, who am I if I don't have these relationships and it was like that was just like the we think of them as they the kind of things we need in our lives and yet the research shows that those things. Actually aren't always that great happiness and our health and traditionally haven't always been that way and that our friendships that Matt make such a difference I found myself kind of in that space where I was looking around being like, why aren't people talking about this more? Why aren't people doing research on this? Why are we not finding resources for people and that's really what kind of just put me in that space I wasn't because I knew that much about it was because I was. Asking the questions and just trying to find resources for people people I was working with and stop and ever since then I've been reading and devouring and learning, and listening, and teaching, and writing books, and speaking, and gathering up, you know most of its with women and This book puts me a little bit broader. I'm doing more co ED, which is actually very cool too because I've long felt that men I think this is one of the reasons why they die younger than women. And and I think this is why I think men need. I don't think it's a women's issue. I think it's a human need and so I'm really excited to be talking about it in broad terms to but yeah friendship is like the thing. The thing and you actually have a ministerial decree. Don't you approaching this from a really sort of holistic perspective yet my training as a got a massive divinity and I used to pastor and so it felt like a big veer off the road. But when I, look back on it, I was like that was where I was doing marriage counseling I was training small. Groups here Emmy, as a pastor, you're asking the question, how do I bond community what is community and how do people belong and and really thinking through when somebody walks in the door is visitor what does it mean to actually participate belong and so yeah I've in many ways have always been about community and wanting money all of us to feel that sense of. Your belonging and unfortunately in churches, not all of them but unfortunately, in most churches will you can experience that belonging, but there's a lot of. That, you have to believe a certain thing to belong or you have to behave a certain way to behave behavior. You have to appear a certain way to you know and that kind of never rubbed me right either. So it's really just how do we all as humans get that need to feel connected met and ways where we just feel accepted for who we are. So yeah, that's been a life passion. An and what made you want to tackle the workplace side of it then? Yeah, that's a good question I. so here's the thing. My second book was titled French Missy, and that one was talking about how most of us when we feel lonely and as a word that most of us don't actually even use the name very well. But when we feel like we want something more most of us, it's not we want more interaction or that we need to. Know more people that we need to make new friends. Most of us that we need to, we need to have closer relationships where craving intimacy were craving more meaningful relationships, and so I was noticing that a lot of us when we felt lonely, we were like, Oh, I need to go make friends I need to meet people and I was like, no, you actually know enough people you don't feel known by a few and so you need to let go. And when I teach what deepens relationship one of the three things that deepens relationships is consistent time and shared experiences and repeated interaction and I this won't surprise you at all. The number one thing I heard is I don't have time for that I don't have time to be that consistent I can only meet her for lunch once a month or I can only see them once a year I fly out there or I just don't have time to be on the phone I just over and over and over I don't have time. And I've thought, you know I could do my darndest to like into one more hour week and and that's not going when you see the numbers collectively of sixty one percent of US feeling lonely on a somewhat regular basis I was like I don't think I can talk you into one more hour and that's going to make the biggest difference I. Think we need to tackle. You know work is like two adults. What school is two kids. This is where we're spending time with people where we're interacting. We're making our biggest contribution and I was like, why don't we talk about putting friendship and our whole life as opposed to trying to fit it in his personal life bucket with a thousand other things and to me this is really answering the question of how can we? Get more of our emotional social needs met in the biggest part of our lives in that bucket. So it's answering the question I don't have time. Well you do. Doing. Yes exactly. But but I think a lot of people feel a little weird about that. Right? I mean first, we're accustomed to thinking of life in separate spheres but you one is where we can have this this vulnerability, the intimacy with people in our personal lives. You, know we feel a little bit weird about that in in the workplace is, is it okay to be vulnerable and intimate with people at work? Yeah. Absolutely. It is and it's so interesting because we are uncomfortable with it when I was doing the research about thirty percent of esther like. And yet when asked, how many of us lot a friend almost of us are like Oh. Yes. Please in at work like we're not sure it's appropriate but we want one and also it is it is whether we like it or not. It is the number one place adults are making their friends and so that is happening and the much bigger question is it is happening we need it to happen. What we need to do is talk about it more and teach healthy expectations and set this up so that it's best for the people involved and for the workplace and the research shows it is absolutely. Paramount, not to are not only to our individual health and happiness but to the organizations of who we work, which is really fascinating. I mean there's twenty years of research I mean we're talking. Decades and many many different people studying it in a variety of different ways who say if you have a best friend at work, you are the best employees for the workplace you're more engaged you have better treat the customers better. You're less likely to leave. So we're bringing our turnover costs down. You call in sick last year fewer workplace accidents. I mean, you just look down the list and the people who? Have a best friend at work. Absolutely show up and feel more engaged look forward to Monday morning the Monday morning in air quotes and feel like they wanna feel support it and they feel safer brainstorming they feel safer taking risks they feel safer showing up with the ideas and those last few ideas are examples of vulnerability in the workplace and to your point a lot of us are like. Well, we picture people. Telling personal drama and just being all these heated one last night and we picture `vulnerability and we have like these fears the pop into our head immediately and I do teach incremental slow vulnerability when we're talking about disclosing and I teach how to do that and healthy Safeway But more importantly, vulnerability is what we need in order to brainstorm. It's what we need to say, I, actually don't know the answer to this or I actually need help with this or. Not just diversity inclusion is vulnerability. It's like let me I don't want to just have you be a token different person at the table I. Actually want your differences, the impact art answers here and your story to change what we're trying to do and how you're experiencing this and I'm all. When we actually list everything we want for the workplace and how we will be better together it takes an incredible amount of vulnerability to to do that.

AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial, shares slip on rollout doubts

"No Work? No pay no food coronavirus lockdowns have forced many people all over the world to wonder where their next meal's will come from according to Matthew True. Scott Oxfam International's head of Humanitarian Policy About one hundred and twenty one million people have been pushed to the edge of starvation. This year not of course is across the main hotspots you would expect Yemen Democratic Republic of Congo of Gunston Venezuela, south. Sudan we're also seeing hunger coming up in otherwise middle income or developing countries. India South Africa Brazil CETERA. Look at a situation in the world where you have about sixty sixty, one percent working in the informal economy when that denied that daily income forced to stay at home they no longer get that income and that forces them into some of the negative coping strategies and that's what makes this crisis so unique. People. Couldn't travel to work which meant they couldn't make money and they couldn't buy food but this isn't just a short term problem. Is it Yeah and it has sort of long term impacts where, for instance, if you take people who are living day to day selling milk, if they can't sell milk for a few days, it gets point whether then have to do something to have food and income then have to sell their means of income. So selling the cow which had been providing them and then conquered back to generate income and same happens instead of urban areas where people who had been, for instance, taxi drivers after. So long of not being able to take fares and give taxi rights eventually then have to start selling off assets to cope and that's where we're really. Seeing potential long-term structural breakdown, and as you say, this is a problem that existed before the pandemic. So how do we tackle it this time around does it require new solutions? It does with sort of proposing three solutions. The I of course is that we need to increase humanitarian aid drastically the U. N. Global Humanitarian Appeal has called for about ten point, three billion dollars in humanitarian aid. But only about twenty, four percent of that is funded. So less than a quarter, the second thing that we can do is cancelled some of the debt that could free up up to a trillion dollars, and then of course, the final thing is. Exactly, as you say, we do need to change how system works. We need to build a more fair and more robust food system. We need to build a system that's ready to deal with the climate shocks that's able to produce sustainable food. One that supports a small-scale Farmers Informal Workers, Matthew Scott head of humanitarian policy at Oxfam International. Thanks for your time. Thank you so much

Tyler Jordan On How To Advertise In A Down Market

"Today's guest teacher Tyler Jordan is the founder of Jordan digital marketing and he's been helping entrepreneurs get out there for years. His Digital Marketing Agency is focused on getting people, new clients, new leads through Google ads, facebook ads, Lincoln, facebook Instagram, you name it. This is why I'm so excited to have him here today as a guest teacher because we're GONNA get some. Free Consulting. This is a really good lesson on the importance of paid advertising right now in growing your business. Even if you have a small budget that small budget can go a long way right now and you should not miss this opportunity tyler Jordan's GonNa, teach you pass it onto him. Now, we'll be back with my takeaways to wrap up the episode, but for now, takeaway? Tyler Everyone, this is tyler. Over Jordan digital marketing. We've put together a six point plan for how to run paid acquisition marketing. Even in the midst of pandemic, the world has profoundly changed over the last two months. People are staying home at a drastically higher rate even as things start to open up even with restrictions being lifted fewer people are going to go out pure people are going to restaurants a lot fewer people are going to be commuting twitter square are two of the biggest companies to announce new work from home policies that. Allow people to work from home indefinitely in a recent Gallup poll more than fifty percent of Americans said they'd like to continue to work from home even after the restrictions are lifted, that means fewer people commuting, which means fewer people listening to radio listening to streaming services, seeing billboards or out of home media. So outdoor marketing opportunities have all but dried up, but it also means that there's a ton more people sitting in their houses searching and scrolling all day long in front of their computers. This leaves a huge opportunity for those who. Are Willing to take it. We've seen massive pullbacks and marking spin, but the people who have stayed the course with their digital spend are seeing major benefits. We've put together a six point plan to explain how you can restart or improve on your current paid marketing strategies. The first point businesses down right now, but it's not going to be gone forever this also down for everyone a lot of people have pulled spin really dramatically if you have the money to continue advertising, this is the time for you to take over your space. Even if your product is dependent on people being out and about you can spend this time to position yourself for the rebound when business comes back those who spend the time and money to stay in front of people right now will continue to be in their consideration set those who poll their marketing will be lost and forgotten, and right now CPM's CPC's are at all time lows in March. The average see pm in the United States fellow three dollars for the first time in two years and the lowest amount globally ever they've increased. About four dollars since then but that's still thirty percent cheaper than what they were towards the end of February. The second point think about the channels you running billboard. Or dead print is struggling in has been struggling for a while TV is hot right now because everybody's took it home and digital is is pure fire right now even as things open up their millions of more people staying home and scrolling their timelines searching from their phones than normal, we're getting finally to see the true capability of the Internet during his time, which is weirdly exciting. NETFLIX's who lives social feeds and Youtube are quickly becoming the go-to entertainment sources for the vast majority of America. If your business typically relies on out of home media or events, look into Ott, youtube bands, and think about runs video on facebook. The third point we'd like to make is think about Tom don't forget the situation that people are facing right now but also try not to be overly cliche. The number of companies that are talking about navigating these uncertain times ridden risen by an astronomical amount you need to care and be mindful of the situation, but don't default to being too scared to have a real message. Make sure you're still telling people who you are and what you do if you can share the story of how your business is helping in the. Current situation or how the company is making changes to ensure that things remain safe when life goes back to normal the goal here is to remain top of mind for your ideal customer segment because if you don't someone else will we have an education based client advertising Kobe coming resources guide as a way to fill the top of the funnel for when their program starts. Gets back to normal. They're gonNA have thousands of new leads in their crm that they can go and attack right away they in cost relieves right now dropped to less than half of their normal rate, and while they're not converting any users right now, they're perfectly set up for the rebound. The fourth point, the noise has been cleared out. CPM's are lower than ever, but that's because no one else has advertising. So that means you have an opportunity to own the conversation personally I've only seen masterclass ads on youtube for like the last two months and I, actually finally just signed up to learn how to cook Mexican food. David able to own the airwaves because so many people have been scared and pulled out of the market. We've seen this sort of result, a lot of times from companies that we work with two. We've seen one of our fintech clients had a sixty five percent increase in conversions with only a thirty, five percent increase in spend on their top competitor campaigns during lockdown their competition pulled back and they stayed strong and stay true to their paid strategy, and they're reaping the benefits for another client of ours has been able to see a sixty one point five percent jump in numbering conversions even after social distancing quarantining started to happen, they've only increased spend about forty six percent. Outside jump in nombre and conversions, versus the spend they put forward simply because there's fewer people in the space another client was able to see a sixty one percents jump in non brand conversions after stay home orders and social distancing. They've only put together a forty five percent increase in spencer seeing outside his jump in overall conversions. The benefit here is that the audience that you're getting in front of right now is one that has more time on his hand and his testing out more tools during their downtime. So people who are getting in front of them are having an opportunity to get leads that maybe wouldn't be so to jump on a demo or get on a call with you. But if you're able to continue to spend that money and own your niche, you have a really unique opportunity to get in front of more of the right people and it might not pay off right now but it will pay off when business starts to get back to normal. And this brings us to our fifth point people are shopping around dramatically more people have more time on their hands. Money needs a stretch further. So people are taking the time to test out multiple different tools whereas they used to just focus in on one and do the easiest thing we're seeing a lot of people sign up for leads, download content and request demos in the SAS face embedded these space, and it's our job to go capture that interest. We're also seeing a lot of people buying a lot more on e commerce sites because they're stuck at home and they need fix their shopping addiction anyway. So we're seeing a lot of huge increases in ECON sector as well. If you're running an ECOMMERCE site, the best place for you to go and find that traffic and convert those users is GonNa be through digital through search social and display. So make sure that you're getting out there in front of people with the right message and using right audience the sixth and. Final point is one that we harp on regularly all of our audits and that's you need to speak to people at different stages of the funnel. Differently this is important at all times the year but especially right now, make sure that you're using the right tone to introduce yourself to new customers be a little bit more mindful of the situation those interactions but once you've introduced yourself, make sure that you let them know why you're different and why they should go with you over the other companies are shopping around with. Once they become accustomed to make sure that you asked her promote you to their friends. One of the big ways that people find business normally is they ask their friends recommendations. So if you can facilitate that with paid marketing that'll put you in a position right now with all your new customers that you bring in today to really allow that to snowball on top of itself. Once the economy starts and things start to get back to normal.

Surviving Suicide

"Hey, there a warning before I. Start Today Show. We're GONNA. Be Talking about some pretty heavy topics. Today will be talking about mental health anxiety depression. And surviving suicide. Parental discretion is advised. In twenty, nine, thousand, nine, nearly eight, hundred, thousand people died of suicide. means, every forty seconds someone was taking their own life. And, suicide is a global phenomenon in certainly their populations, certain people, certain experiences that place. You at greater risk of suicide. But for every person who dies from suicide, it's estimated that there's another twenty. Who attempted suicide? That means for every one person who dies of suicide. There are twenty people who survive it. But death by suicide and suicide attempts are preventable. Now, that is not to say that you. You alone can prevent someone. From taking their own life or from even trying. But. It does mean that we've got to start having these conversations more openly. We've got to remove the stigma. GotTa be able to know the sign so that there's something we can do so that we can intervene. So today because of the pandemic, because of racial tensions because of the world that we live in today, suicide rates are higher than ever. Now, I've heard reports that suicides are up nearly two hundred percent so far in twenty twenty and I did my best to substantiate those statistics. Night can't tell you. I can substantiate the number of suicides is that much higher wouldn't surprise me. I just can't substantiate it when I can tell you is that Google searches Calls to suicide prevention lines and visits to online support groups are up more than two hundred percent since the lockdown began. You should also know that suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the US. In fact, I WANNA lead with some really powerful statistics so that you'll begin to think about this, not just in terms of you or your family members. But your neighbors, your parents, your grandparents, your nieces, or nephews every day. The CDC estimates about one, hundred, twenty, three people die from suicide, and that was in twenty nineteen. It's also estimated that only half of Americans who are experiencing some form of depression or anxiety ever seek treatment. But did you know that between eighty to ninety percent of people who do seek treatment for depression or anxiety find success by using therapist and or a medical intervention? Did you hear that like eighty to ninety percent feel better? An estimated quarter? Million People? Every year are survivors of suicide attempt. In previous years, suicide was the second leading cause of death in the world for people ages fifteen to twenty, four today, it's the number one leading cause of death. And although more females than males attempt suicide. represent. Seventy, nine percent. Of, all suicides in the United, states? Firearms being their most commonly used method and for females. The most commonly used method is overdose poison if you will. Now, let's talk about who is at greatest risk I. It is our LGBTQ plus community. There are three times, more likely special kids, three times more likely than straight kid to attempt suicide Oh nps if you have a sneaking suspicion that your kid might. Be Gay. Bi. Trans. Trust me just accept them and love them if you don't. They feel that. They know that don't assume your Keta straight is what I'm trying to say kids who worry about what their parents and society might think are three times more likely. To commit suicide forty-one percent of trans, adults that they've attempted suicide and the same study found that almost sixty one percent of trans people who were also victims of some form of assault sixty. One percent of those people have attempted suicide because get this lesbian gay and bisexual young adults who come from families where either the belief the notion, the sentiment was that they would be rejected because of their sexuality. Those kids are eight times more likely to commit suicide. Then, children who come from families where they feel very accepted. Each time and lgbtq person is of victim of any type of harassment or abuse that increases their risk of self harm by almost three hundred percent. Those are some of the most at risk populations, the elderly, also a very high risk population. What do I have delivered for I? Don't WANNA be a burden to my children. There's nothing for me to look forward to. Black talk about risk factors regardless of population demographic. The WanNa be on the lookout for these risk factors. Place people at a much higher likelihood of attempting suicide, any previous known or unknown or diagnosed mental disorder. Especially mood disorders, schizophrenia bipolar ast, which is autism spectrum disorder autism, any anxiety disorder, and certain personality disorders. Those who regularly use substances, like you know, drugs, alcohol painkillers, people who tend to be more impulsive or aggressive anyone with a history of trauma, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse people who are experiencing a major physical disability setback, chronic illness, those with a family history of suicide, those who have a close friend or relative committed suicide anyone who's in recent job or financial distress. Those, who recently lost a relationship at greater risk for suicide is anyone who's being isolated or who lacks their peers social support?

Change in Dominican Republic as opposition wins presidency

"Let's go to the Dominican Republic now where the victory by the opposition part in this weekend's elections has marked the end of sixteen years of rule by the Dominican Liberation Party. The P. L. D.. The newly elected president Louis Shabina dare managed to capture fifty two point fifty three percent of the vote, well earlier I was joined on the line from the Dominican Republic's. Republic's capital not Sunday Domingo by bridget wooding, who's the director of the think tank, Obi m I, see a or center for immigration, observation and social, development in the Caribbean bridget started by giving us a bit of context and explaining just how significant the results are very significant, because we're talking about change after sixteen years of ruling party and we're talking. Talking about an almost exact reversal of what happened in the elections for years ago when the President Danilo Medina got in with sixty one percent of the vote against thirty four percent of our be now there, and as you mentioned now I've been there has with the fifty percent needed and Danilov menace stouffer. His candidate from the ruling party got only thirty four percent. percent or so of the vote, so if we're looking at something, which is which is very significant, all the way along President Medina had sought to transfer his popularity to his chosen candidate on solid casteel, but in fact council steel was probably the weakest candidates that he had because unsubtle casteel was involved with public works, which has been notorious for different corruption scandals. But then the President Danilo Medina thought that with Kobe nineteen. He would have things in his favor. There would be a kind of swath vote for the way. He was dating with things, but that was not to be because. Since January two, thousand, seventeen, this being the Green March movement against corruption, and the fact that disparities between rich and poor had been rolling, and there were a number of journalists who actually lost their jobs trying to denounce this, so this became a big issue, the government, totally of note, the evidence and the president. Medina also took further actions to control the judiciary, but what also happened was that the former president Leonel Fernandez split from the ruling party, and that divided what had been a pretty Monolithic party up over the last sixteen years, and he did it by suggesting that certain casteel the nominee President Medina had been put in by false means. But there was a thought that were things to go to a second round up. The ex-president learn finance might have gone in with with consol. But what was the most decisive thing that happened this year was that on the sixteen to February nineteen elections, there was a glitch and e-voting could not take place, and so, what happened then was that the elections were. Left right and center, but this was corruption. And especially, the millennials who had begun to take to the streets along with other you know in many Latin, American capitals so in recent months, really caught a bit between their teeth and the middle class, which had kept the ruling party in power for sixteen years, suddenly began to feel that they've been robbed up the wrong way. The things were things were unraveling now. The government you know is the country's largest employer, but even those that it was keeping in their pay when along a satisfied. Feeling change had to happen, and that was the ticket on which the new president has got in and posted to surprise then I mean it was clear that the tide was turning, but did you ever think that actually he would overturn the sixteen years of Monolithic rule I think all the more recent polls have shown that he's definitely in the lead. I think what was worrying. was that at the last minute that Kobe number? would be used as a cover to dissuade more middle class voters perhaps from going to vote, and also the usual tactics of paying people to vote or giving people handouts prior to elections this time it didn't work with the with the exception perhaps of the government in some of the poorest province near the border, but it didn't work the because people were determined the change and I think this is. Of what's happening in a number of Latin America where people do feel the need for change, and corruption is a big issue, and people feel that it should be tackled also covid nineteen demonstrated again the dispatch between rich and poor because those people who. Are Not documented migrants people have been nationalized. He had don't have access to government programs, and this doesn't look good in the face of the sustainable development goals. It doesn't look good in the face of the international community, so something was going to break I think, but nevertheless I think. People woke up. Fight surprised that it had happened so smoothly and things didn't go to a second round. This Sunday. Do you think that people would just then voting against the status quo, or was there something specific that abner was offering? What made his campaign so successful? I think he was really offering to clean things up, and so if you the bar next to my house today after elections happen, it was saying the whites have gone got in his Richmond from the cradle. They don't need to rob. So, there was the sense that. That These were people who have. had a different kind of agenda, and all walks of life seeing that. that there have been just too much of a monolithic hold on every aspect of society and under change was necessary, but I think the corruption thing was important, and then the fact that normally elections happen on the no glitches, but this glitch that happened in February with the elections and the feeling that there was something going on under. Probably the think was more likely with the incumbent party. I think those were the two decisive things that make people think. Yeah, we do need a change and finally bridget. What can we expect from his presidency? What will apart obviously from corruption be the main issues on the agenda? Well, obviously we have a big health crisis on our hands, and as you can see the Dominican probably is one of the worst countries in the insular. Caribbean and the election mobilization hasn't held so I think we're going to have to go back to the state of a state of emergency. The new governor will also be slightly tied in terms of how far it can go in more imaginative on policy, more imaginative domestic policy because it did do a deal in this S- i Brown with some of the more ultra nationalist sectors of society, and so they're going to have to reckon with that. I think trying to was cleaning up corruption, trying to create more jobs and trying to ensure the disparities between rich and poor are not sensu it'd such that in this pandemic. All can be served healthwise and in future crisis, people are not going to be discriminated one way or another. And that was bridget. Lots of background birdsong on the line from Santa Domingo.

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.

Support for the LGBTQ Community is on the Rise in the US

"Comparing numbers in in this Will REPORT BETWEEN Sort of how support for the. Lgbtq community has shifted between the years. Two Thousand Fifteen and two thousand nineteen right just a four year period. Okay Yeah that's that's not a huge period. Not a huge period. But it's very interesting. They surveyed more than forty thousand Americans. Small it's not small and they've found that seventy two percent of this group said that they they favored nondiscrimination protections for lesbian gay bisexual transgender People and that was in two thousand nineteen study seventy percent great so you can like that. Wow like amazing levels of support when you think about how far we've come since early two thousands so that's that's really remarkable and And something to be really really happy about but there's something in these numbers knew there was a but I knew that but is shocking and mildly. Hard to put your hat. Wrap your head around okay. During the same period the number of people who said they oppose allowing small businesses to refuse products and services to gays if doing so would violate their religious beliefs In Two Thousand Sixteen These the which was the highest point right at sixty one percent of Americans said that this this you know they're they're an opposition to this make sense. It's not fair it's not write. This number is dropped from two thousand sixteen right to fifty six percent in two thousand nineteen. Yeah and and this is surprising. People are I I'm a little taken aback by this. That the numbers could shift like that It's just five percentage points but like still right like I here's the problem The messaging on the wrong side of this issue is so good. It's their messaging is easy. It's just religious freedom. Yeah exactly. This is a country that has religious freedom. Yeah and the messaging on the other side isn't getting through which is just if you practice it you know if you're open to for business in the United States you're open for everybody right and that's the end. I know it's it's a really funny thing. And and what they're looking at in this article is they're talking about specifically the cases that were sort of out there in the news do with like cakes for weddings and so Yes you was linked to gay marriage and so the support of gay marriage and and so people that they were seeing. No that's not fair. That's not right. Let it up. But you're right. They as soon as the religious right lost on the gay marriage issue and saw the numbers like the support out. There in the public is so high right right. They know that they're not going to win that. And they're just going to look like dicks right and they're not gonna get the thing that they their their plan. B which is they want to be able to discriminate against gay people in some fashion right right and if they held on hard to keep fighting gay marriage gay marriage gay marriage they'd look like dicks right would lose favor on these other issues and the public's opinion would be solidified. They're actually really. They deftly shifted their focus. This issue And it looks like we've got some work to do because this is so fucking wrong right and I don't get how people can how they don't see this right. If you support marriage right at a at a rate of seventy two percent of this country right supporting gay people in equality in equal rights just in rights. You don't have to go to their wedding. Yeah just have to like the FA you just have to be okay with people having equality. How can there be this disparity right in other sort of other rights the rights to go about your life and to go and get goods and services at any business that's opened generally to the public? Yeah but that's the problem is that they couch it as a right. I have the right not to serve people that I don't want to. I have a right to discriminate. Great and when he's a stylish that you don't really well but we've established that you have the right to hate them and you have the right to be addict about it. But the problem is the People.

The moral dilemma of COVID-19: Difficult decisions on economy and saving lives

"Save the economy or save a life that's the key moral dilemma facing officials as they weigh which steps to take next in response to the pandemic president trump is eager to restart the economy but medical experts warn if the U. S. moves too quickly more lives could be lost the New York times held a video conference with five experts from different backgrounds to discuss the difficult decisions that lie ahead prominent political activist and Reverend William barber took part in that discussion and he joins us now from Goldsboro North Carolina robin thank you so much for waiting this pandemic has led to an unprecedented national emergency what do you believe the moral response should be thank you so much for having me along what we have to know first and foremost explore the issues and the breakages and societal inequalities and America has a lot of rooms in that area when it comes forward racism is structural issues and what makes you as they explore that they do when you don't close the pictures you deepen and expand the life of the pandemic so the moral issue is that before the pandemic ever happened we have seven hundred people dying a day from popular hundred forty million people four and low income pandemic we don't put your mall thing we haven't done in the trump administration McConnell there is a push for mobile arrest reveals about treating also corporation and gave the people people sales workers we have whole middle seats basically we can get tested but we don't have any insurance are we don't have a guarantee that they can have the right all the water will be shut off so we're actually in the midst of this pandemic you in the qualities and you deepen any qualities actually calling the plan poverty was the pandemic could be for this pandemic at river in our own Paula Reid who works in Washington asked to advisor to the president kellyanne Conway about why there was such a lack of diversity on the president's council to re open the economy she didn't have an answer for that I mean we're hearing more and more about how minority small businesses are really challenged when it comes to accessing a little bit of this these billions of dollars that have been set aside to help them stay alive financially is the government doing enough to ensure that all Americans financially survive this pandemic no they weren't doing enough for even the pandemic there was no diversity and that's the one hundred and forty million poor and low income people but for his friend six three of sixty one percent of Americans look for a little while well the twenty six million people don't forget sixty six million white Americans all formal well but also fifty four percent of all people living wage what will people of color there's this ministry has dismissed that he brags about one one half American unit but actually while wages have gone down and people looking both ways and go all the way for and then the administration has not done anything to really be staff recommend before you get those businesses the fact is one of my friends says black people are dying to mostly be tested at least we are saying over and over and over in communities that you're having the highest rate ripping in Mississippi seven percent of those are African Americans desperate because of structural racism and what was his Surgeon General say black people need to stop smoking stop doing drugs and stop doing alcohol and does not address the systemic realities of the lack of health care the lack of hospitals that lack of treatment and the lack of testing which all the structural issues if anything this administration is is widening the racial gaps and creating more hall finish creating cooler we had a conversation yesterday with clergy and the clergy across this country we will open letter to the president and vice president the task the server general saying listen we need hospitals in our communities of color we need testing sites and community of color we need to just ask authorization act you can ask and then it later so that you can price that out and we can get those things to our home and we don't need I'll less about personal responsibility which is always the way some people try to dismiss dealing with structural realities of racism rubber nose points are really important to those points are really important to highlight because as you as you say there are deeper rooted issues that has sort of eggs been exacerbated by by this pandemic for example we know that people with asthma are can be severely affected by Kobe nineteen a lot of black and brown people live in communities that are close to highways and so that that will have an effect on asthmatic conditions for a lot of people a lot of black and brown people a lot of immigrants are those front facing service workers that we rely on those of us who are all working from home and it's easy to say to people you know Netflix and chill but for a lot of people who need that paycheck the bus drivers the postal workers that bodega owners they're going to work every single day and they are coming into contact with people who may be a symptomatic and so these are some of the issues that are sort of coming to light even though black and brown people knew those issues existed before cove in nineteen you remember sometime ago trump's interests with the war was over as I said while I'm sitting here forty three percent of our country formal welcomes sixty one percent of Americans work for low income and it's not because people are lazy it's because their jobs will not be under the ground helping job with this company thank you just mentioned the Surgeon General of the day say about people need to stop smoking author of smoke people come from plants and telecommunications you can close the plants that are needing like you saying errors in Louisiana it has the highest per capita rate of death in the country before and then and now still has the highest rate of deaths from the pandemic those people all the diseases because of the cancer carcinogens that are produced by the plant skin cancer our issues that we have to do and they're not giving him we called the central workers and many people are among the orderlies the groceries the fashion work with nurses what not who are who are essential workers get broader than just we say people essential workers and they represent the soul of America will win all the dissension workers going to seat the soul of America we tell them to go to the front line we don't guarantee them healthcare we have not guaranteed them safely we have guaranteed them a living wage we've done all those things for the corporations we bailed out before there was even a full blown panic diminish what we left DC central workers with our assistance and and and we have to come to okay just relax everybody has a right to lead it if they don't we don't know if they are sick it's not going to stay among the poor low income workers lack communities are sick the Germans lock on the state Tino communities are safe it's not going to stay there is going to continue to spray it and extend the life of this pandemic to the rest of us one reason we've been pushing according to scripture and I said whoa onto the old legislate evil and rock for their rights we are seeing a robbing poor and low income people basic fundamental human rights the right to a decent wage the right to healthcare the right to sick leave and again a pandemic it does hurt all you might be able to hide it during a pandemic you will be exposed and by those things continuing to exist it will extend the life and in the end this number also soccer so everybody has a right to me you know if they don't we don't and we better hurry up and relaxed it and this

Why Is American Money Used Around the World?

"As of January twenty twenty Japan and China each own more than one trillion dollars in US Treasury securities followed by the United Kingdom With three hundred and seventy two billion dollars and Brazil two hundred eighty three billion according to the International Monetary Fund more than sixty one percent of the world's cash reserves are held in dollars. The euro is in for second place at twenty percent when even an economic powerhouse like China holds a trillion. Us Dollars Reserve. That's a good sign that the dollar is still considered the mightiest of the global currencies. But the dollar wasn't always the world's defacto currency so what changed before World War. Two all global currencies were backed by gold and each government. Guaranteed that it's money was good for certain amount of gold then came the Bretton Woods Agreement of nineteen forty four which created the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and also established the US dollar as the new gold because the US held most of the world's gold supply the dollar continued to dominate during the post World War. Two boom years. A We spoke with Jonathan David Kirschner a professor of Political Science and International Studies at Boston College. Who Co edited. A book called the future of the dollar he explained the rise of the dollar order was on four pillars the robustness of the US economy the widespread belief in the American model of finance the wealth of US financial institutions and America's leading role in international affairs Kirschner said most of the world's monetary relations were orchestrated between the US and its political allies and military. Dependencies it was natural to be conducted in dollars. The Bretton Woods fixed exchange rate scheme collapsed in the nineteen seventies when Richard. Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard during a period of domestic inflation and many industrialized economies chose to float their currencies on the open market. At that time some economists began to predict the downfall of the dollar not that it would lose value but that it would lose. Its dominance as the world's de facto currency over the decades. Most of those pillars that made the dollar king of the postwar Connie have been toppled recessions stock market bubbles and the global financial crisis have revealed cracks in the American financial bottle and the US has lost some of its political dominance with many governments and corporations choosing to do business with China or Europe instead yet the numbers show that the dollar is still the currency that nations and individuals turn to as a safe harbor in economic storms. Kirschner said the ultimate reason is a simple one. The lack of plausible alternative. Not The dollar. Then what there have been periodic calls to shift more Reserve Holdings to the euro the Chinese are mb or even back to gold but the dollar still reigns supreme when countries shop for a reserve currency that stable secure and liquid that is easy to convert back to local money. The dollar is still the default in fact some countries such as Panama and El Salvador use the US dollar as their own legal tender the US government doesn't have to give approval for another country to use the dollar as its official currency. So what about a one world currency not going to happen? Kirschner says the first reason is political. There's simply no political will to have one world government or one world currency the second reason we won't see an earth dollar anytime soon or the whole world using the US dollar for their official currency for that matter has to do with an economic theory called optimal currency area. That states that a single currency only operates effectively over relatively small geographic area the size of a country for example not a continent or the world. That's because different regions might be experiencing very different economic conditions at the same time. One Country might be in recession. While another is booming. Kirschner said if you only have one money in the whole world and you only have one monetary authority which means you only have one. Monetary policy in reality different regions or countries would need monetary policies more tailored to their individual needs. That's one of the reasons why the euro hasn't supplanted the dollar as the defacto global currency the Bureau Paean Union itself is not an optimal currency area. It's too spread out. Which means that. E with authorities have to enact monetary policies that somehow serve economies in very different financial conditions like Germany and Greece.

Yeah. Because it can be kind of in. Personal. But like, yeah. Buying gifts for people is hard because it's a challenge in how how well, you know them gift card is like I couldn't figure you out. But here's to argue too. If you are buying something for somebody that you don't know that. Well, and I think everybody at the table recognizes. That's true. Then it is almost like like lease consider it to be like, here's a thing that I'm going to make sure that you take to your house. And now you have to do some have you get it wrong. It's like here's some garbage and also gift cards for like strangers. You do kind of need to know where they shop like you do at least need to know that because if you give somebody gift card to place, they don't go again, it's just kind of like a guilt trip.
