What You Need to Know About Bitcoin Layer 2s

"Everyone will come to. Our panel layer twos on bitcoin with melting juniors chief strategy officer at coin shares and nick carter general partner at castle island ventures. Welcome milton nick. Hi laura so exciting to be here. And i have to give thanks to nick in advance. I roped tim into sitek around like doing this. I wanna have. I'm risk can with you know. I'm very glad to be here though is a really great remix of of massive attack. Just before the saw's really enjoying that. Yes so was i. So let's start our discussion by just defining what layer one and layer to are for people who don't know just to make sure we're on the same page and also multiple layers are necessary at all. Shirk jonah kick it off nick. I can start. i can start in. Virtually every payments system there they functioned in layers so when we talk about layers and bitcoin or cryptocurrency. It's actually completely in line with how things work in the traditional payments base. So you know it's possible to send a wire as a consumer you know. We have access to fed wire. Want but you know for the most part when you use dollars you're transacting with credit systems or peer to peer payments like bone papon cetera. Those would be considered second or even third layer on top of more fundamental clearing infrastructure. Where you have backed payments which happen less frequently and their larger in size and those payments at the bottom of stack of higher assurances. So and they kind of settled immediately as opposed to higher layer payments which settle on a deferred basis so credit card payments are not final immediately so extend that analogy to Currency just sort of contextualized it a little bit. Bitcoin payments would be considered fast settling high assurance payments. So those are my mind can have utility scale transactions. You can use months. Value can have confidence. they're going to settle. Immediately layer to in. My view is more about deferring settlement getting more skill ability through training off against those settlement. Assurances are getting faster finality By trading off again against assurances so basically opening up the design space and mirroring. Those you know that that layered model that we have in payments itself and i think that's really how payments systems scale as far as we understand them it's unlikely that unite everybody on the bottom layer the that would be like all we ever used for. Transactions was sending wires to each other. So that's kind of my view of it multiple. Know if you've a different diagnosis. I think the way you articulated. Nick is a great starting point You know the analogy. We use often is the bitcoin. Blockchain is more akin to fed wire. And what we've seen you know. A lot of other protocols have moved more quickly to adopt layer twos. I think the ferryman particular is one that from the very early days had a mindset to sort of start moving towards layer two and one of the interesting observations is over the last six Six months pardon really as we've seen the explosion of defy a new financial primitives being implemented on top of the theory. Obviously it's resulted in a lot of challenges in network availability network throughput and rising price in in sending transactions across the network deploying contracts now. Obviously bitcoin doesn't function in the same way. But what. I think is important to note. Is you know. There is an important function here. Whereas bitcoin usage grows and the adoption of bitcoin grows a number of use cases that were utilizing for bitcoin grows. We're going to need different layers. That have these features. That are optimized for the specificity of the use case. And that's something that's talked about a bit more in other protocols that are newer and i've had an opportunity to learn from watching what's happened in bitcoin but i think it's been interesting to observe you know i'm in many people's minds we really don't ever think about the amount of bandwidth we're consuming or the cost of connectivity to the core protocol which were interacting and in many ways the way i think about bitcoin For the first time in human history we have a way to price computing activity. There is a very real price that you have to pay prioritize transactions in the meme pool and so in my view. It's actually like an internet interesting. Crossover pardon between some of the concepts around Computing connectivity and how rodham topologies work with money. Right you're basically punching routing policy using transaction fees and and money effectively that allow you to sort of create specificity in terms of what layer of the stack on operate without compromising the security guarantees of the coin and again is nick described. There are inevitably going to be trade-offs but we've observed so far as we look at. The proliferation of bitcoin is an asset across other chains. Whether that's in the form of rap. Bitcoin or other assets is people really do want to have the security. Guarantees of bitcoin is an asset. But they want to have the ability to adopt some of the parameters around how they're utilizing the network security guarantees of their transactions particularly lower few transactions perhaps being able to deploy smart contracts or a more complex as sort of logic that maybe isn't as easy to deploy bitcoin script. So i think that's very important the other piece. I'll just quickly add that. I think is really important since this conference is about developers developers developers. Tomorrow on cnn. Steve ballmer if you remember. His famous developers developers developers speech is electric capital puts out this great report on and it just came out. It's their state of the developer ecosystem report and one of the interesting observations. They have is there. A low more developers in other protocols than there are in bitcoin because bitcoin is notoriously hard to develop with and building a robust grasp of bitcoin. Core protocol takes much longer than perhaps some of these other protocols which was scripted in more familiar languages and have different types of logic. That's more intuitive to say like javascript developers or other developer communities that are much larger. So what. I think also been interesting to observe. We have this in the legacy financial system. The entire legacy financial system is built on. Something called coble right. Which is this archaic programming language. Like most people know coble really really well are probably over the age of sixty because they were designing corporate systems must seventies so there's actually really interesting technological risk that exists in our core financial system and our poor financial applications in that the group of people who know and really understanding our experts in kabul are gonna be retiring in the next ten years right so it's created this tremendous amount of pressure on the banking sector to replace some of these core banking systems. That were built fifty sixty years ago because there is a real risk of technological obsolescence not having enough talented people to step into those roles. And i started. See the same thing. Happening in in crypto. Right there aren't necessarily tens of thousands of the coin developers out there who can build really robust highly secure layers on top of bitcoin. And so it's been really interesting to see what's been happening in the sack seacoast system and i'm really excited about milan. Tax may not. Because i think one of the really important Designed space constraints that we have to get through is the fact that the bitcoin developer communities just inherently much smaller than other developer communities because the level of knowledge required is very specific amount of time it takes to become really proficient in bitcoin and to understand all of the nuances of y bitcoin. Core way does prior bibs the history of fly. Certain things are good. Ideas are bad. Ideas takes a long time. Like i'm seven years in. And i still know nothing neck. I don't know how you feel about that. But that's where i think. Layer twos can be helpful in improving extensive ability. Because you don't necessarily require a bunch of people to become incredibly proficient. Bitcoin core through layer. Tuesday can now introduce other programming. Language that really broaden the developer ecosystem and allow people from other ecosystems to be able to build on top of bitcoin without necessarily needing to go through that learning curve on that you otherwise would but again. It's just interesting to me that that's also married and legacy finance for like bank search shitting themselves because all their best. Cobo people are leaving and they don't have anyone to replace on so sort of an interesting parallel at least for me. I think it's it's

What any of us really put money on or say, We think this team will win the World Series like Nice Five years. That's the Dodgers. Maybe. Yeah, maybe. Um, it's just the field is so tough and it's just not how it works. Even if you're willing to spend that's just I mean, look at the Yankees. Right. Look at how long it took the Dodgers to get over the hump. They give. You asked me that question for the Cubs. A week or a month after the Cubs win the World Series in 2016, right, and it ain't looking good. We wouldn't want it three or 4 17 18 1920. Not gonna win next year. No, I'll sell it, but so we'll see what he is. Owners come in. There's enthusiasm, but we saw Steve Ballmer's a great owner hasn't even made a fine, so it's It's not easy to do. But I do think they I think there's a reason for Mets fans to be more hopeful. Certainly Alex Cora was also reintroduced in Boston yesterday and sounded a lot like a J. Hinch did at his Tigers introduction. I want to apologize. I deserve. What happened this year. It was something that is something that I'm not proud of it. But you know, we went through. The whole process with the commissioner's office office, the department of Investigations at the end, you know I got my penalty and I serve it. Jeff Luna and Carlos Beltran now appear to be the two figures who have suffered the most in the ashes cheating scandal fallout. Now that tension Cora have returned to the bench, and, of course, the players were not punished by herself. Beltran will find his way to a managerial gig. By this time next year. I think he will actually buy because you just laid out for us how this is the pattern. And before this, Beltran was one of the most well respected former players in baseball, beloved at multiple stops. Yeah, he's got a lot of political capital out there and let's end with a little Tiger Woods. He spoke to the media yesterday ahead of his master's defense, which begins as I said earlier at 7, 55 Eastern tomorrow morning. That meant a lot to me, and that still does. And it's around me. So much of See my dad on, uh Come full circle like that. It still gives me you know material. Of course, talking about his win last year Buy or sell Tiger will be able to stay in relative contention. Relative contention through the weekend this year. No logic No fax. No intellect. No reason all hard bye Bye it hell! Yah! God! How Yu get emotional What a different tiger. Then 10 years ago. I love it. The last masters Tiger woods want. Think about that? That seems like another university was just saying that it was a year and a half ago, but yet seems a lot more like three. It does mean everything. Before March, 1st February feels like An absolutely different universe in different time. Thank you. Teo Andrew, the boss Bogus as he calls himself. Thank you.

"This country. And this country. Loves US BACK STOCK RIVERS Steve Welcome to the social distancing show. Thanks. I wish I was having you guys on to talk about you know how exciting the playoffs have been I. Wish I was having you want to talk about how amazing Lou Williams has been as a sixth man probably one of my favorite players right on the players I wish I was having you on the show to just talk about the joy of sports unfortunately. We're here because I wanted to talk to you about the NBA Strike and the reason for the NBA strike. Now sure everybody knows about this both for those who don't know the NBA players went on strike in the Games will postponed off the what happened in Kenosha and it was really inspiring and also said to see you know the players standing up and saying, we can't do this anymore doc we played a few of your comments all start with you. What do you think has made this moment in time so different, why do you think these protests have really changed? Not just sports our everyday lives. Because these protests, the game stop you know the gains of always gone on through all these different things that have happened Floyd's murders the game emerged the game kept going right. In this case, the game stopped the players. Need to take a breath and like I said earlier it's not lost on the George Floyd was never afforded to take that breath but our players did and doing that they were able to refocus and come up with tangible things that they want to do you know is so many people that protests but this time we came up with tangible items that that the NBA The owners and the players wanted to do and so that's what makes this so different. Do you find as someone who who works closely with the players that a lot of the players. Might struggle even more to deal with what's happening because now, it's almost an outside will there's a bubble they're seeing this happening they're away from their families they're away from the communities. Do you think that also added to them saying, Hey, we're not in the mood to go dunk a basketball right now we have to focus on what's happening in America. Just using when something like this happens, you're with your family, you can comfort your kids. You can try to explain to them what's going on in America or in that city they were not able to do that and some ways being in this bubble, a lot of work but the players don't feel it. They don't see. They don't know exactly what's going on. So I think in that way you're exactly right. Steve I know as an owner, you know you've been one of the most vocal supporters of. Police reform you've been out there with the NBA saying guys something needs to be done. It is strange. You have to admit though that you of the owner of an NBA team and people are expecting you and the League to fix something that should be dealt with by the government is, is that a very strange situation? Do you feel like it's an unnecessary burden to have? I think about it a little bit different I. Don't know how to speak to the whole league but I do know we have players people like me who are citizens and getting out there using our voices supporting I mean. That's that's the American way you get out and you have the people proposing bills like the justice and policing. ACT The George. Bill Great. There's a lot of good stuff in it. Let's make sure that the house and the Senate come together. I'm just a citizen on this one. I have some good voice. Our players even have a louder voice. And you know that that happens that's not about basketball that's about democracy. You, you've been instrumental in pushing the players though and giving them a platform to speak what are some of the things you learned from the players in these conversations that maybe you weren't fully aware of before they started. Well certainly, I had an opportunity to hear from our players doc and I did a great meeting with the team couple of meetings with the team about the kinds of things that are are on people's minds. I don't have the lived experience of growing up black in the United States a whole fear of police stops in what those mean and where they go and the importance of of really. Being able to have higher levels of count ability so that that that is a system that ended approach that works fairly for all Americans I. Get that out of our discussion when we talk with the guides, what what really helped shape their lives it's these mentorship programs and teachers, and maybe not shots really made vivid to me by the conversations we've had doc rivers some of. The fans of the NBA may say, why cont the guys just play the game and leave politics out of its they may be big fans of yours and the clippers how would you respond to those fans call? First of all, we are planned the Games you know we stopped, but we are GONNA play. We're going to do our job, and so we're doing that but more importantly. I think I got this from you. You know politics are part of our lives, our daily lives, and so if you don't get involved with it, it's GonNa get involved. You are also some of these politics. These are human rights issues We. Think human rights issues are politics and it's not it's what's right and what's wrong and we should also pick up and our players have decided. It's not a burden to do everything right but it's it's our responsibility to get involved because we want to and there's nothing wrong with that and I love that guys doing it and I think they're doing in a sensational away. What is the? What is the knee doing right now because it was really interesting nail biting, watch it all unfold. You know we heard that there was possibly going to be a strike then there was a strike. Then the question was was the season GonNa be cancelled, and then we heard that the NBA was taking some concrete steps..

Tipping the Waiter at the TikTok Table; Howard Schultz: This is a five-star emergency

"Up on today's podcast tech and the platform that's finally got adults talking tick tock tech stocks have been on a tear salesforce Microsoft and facebook all hit record highs this week. But leading the charge apple last Friday I will lead over ten percent in one day yesterday the stock closed at an all time high and now apple is just a few percentage points away from hitting a two trillion dollars market cap the golden number to get it there four, hundred, sixty, seven dollars and seventy seven cents a share. And it looks like apple wine this milestone before it's order one stock split goes into effect at the end of this month. The other companies in the headlines? This Week tiktok beloved by teems commonly misunderstood adults, and now a chesapeake in international business and diplomacy. Here's injury Ross Mark and we've been talking TIKTOK and Microsoft and all of what's happening in Washington. Eunice Yoon reporting now that it's not just Microsoft but to other tech firms that are in talks with Tik Tok owner by dance over a possible sale in president trump said yesterday, he was ready to approve a purchase of the US operations tiktok. But then he said the only woman to do it if the government receives a lot of money in exchange listen to this. Microsoft or somebody else who was the Chinese? What what the price is the United States could should get a very large percentage of that price because we're making it possible without us you know I use the expression it's like the landlord and the tenant. And without the lease the tenant doesn't have the value what we're sort of in a certain way the lease we make it possible to have this great success, tick toxic tremendous success, but a big portion of its in this country. Sale? Yeah. Whatever the number is, would it would come from the civil on Wall Street banker problems. By the way they call that tipping the waiter, but I don't think we've ever tipped the government for transaction president trump said he told Microsoft's CEO that a very substantial portion of the price is going to have to come into the treasury of the United States because quote or making it possible for this deal to happen I was on the phone by the way with. The people involved in this transaction deal teams on all sides who heard that yesterday. Couldn't really even make. Heads or tails of what the president was saying how. Would you hey the government what would that look like could there be a formulation where ultimately you come to some kind of transactional agreement and then you announce that you're making some kind of infrastructure investment in the in the United States who you're going to create some kind of jobs I'm literally, this is the conversation that's happening inside the room among these companies. If we created some companies without yesterday we got to it. It's what did you say? I. Heard it reported yesterday when I first started reporter yesterday I thought he's just saying this stuff off the cuff he doesn't really mean it. Then I saw what he actually said I thought wow, he does mean it. I don't even know how you could possibly as somebody WHO's working on this deal come up with anything that makes any sense and Steve Ballmer Steve Balmer was with us yesterday and said as a shareholder as the top shareholder Microsoft he would love to see this deal get done at the right price. Gets an exciting proposition for Microsoft. obviously depends on the price. Price is important as well as whatever restrictions come from a government perspective but I think it's an exciting avenue for Microsoft to really increase its consumer base. I don't know how you figure out any sort of pricing right pricing when you have to then go in and add some significant number on top that you'd be paying to the US Treasury. Well, what are they? Going to happen is because this is a bit of evaluation game. And I hate to say, we're going to be using trump valuation but I think that what's going to happen is they're going to effectively. Create a higher valuation for the overall business. Then kind of create something where they can say we're giving you something and that bite dance is giving it. That's the other important part of the view at least from what I understand Turnley among these groups is that the money has to come out of China not out of a US company. So you're going to have to make it appear whatever that whatever it is that you're giving to appear that China's not getting part of that's because Peter Navarro and others don't frankly want US money. Ten twenty thirty billion forty billion dollars ending up in the hands of China for the. So there's so many sort of China. has already weighed in. On this today that China has weighed in on this today through some of the states that media where they are saying that you know the US is basically stealing us and trying to do take off with this that it's a rogue nation now at this point. So the idea that you are going to come up with something that satisfies the trump administration and at the same time satisfies the communist government in China Good luck with that I mean this is they're going to get caught in between the two the two with this because even though China may not. Necessarily, be looking for some of the same angles. It's not going to say, okay, it's okay for the US to come out looking like this and stealing our company and don't worry about it. CEO of Tiktok you know or bite dance don't worry about it. We'll live with that sort of a kind of a slap in the face. To all this stuff we're talking about it. Sorry Andrew it. It overshadows the the lead of the story right and that's that there are possibly other suitors for the US. Of tiktok, we we we talked yesterday Andrew about well, maybe media companies would be interested in this property. Now, you know the the wording here that that we use her that Eunice was reporting was other tech offense, which which makes it even more interesting and who these other tech companies. May Be an at. Are they based in the US or are they elsewhere? It would be very I. I would imagine it would be very hard for Google or Amazon or an apple etc to try to buy this company given the anti-trust pressures on them, I. Think my understanding was that the White House preferred that liked the Microsoft choice from a regulatory perspective. So it's all very interesting by the way the other piece of this is the part I. Really don't understand if you're apple today, you know we're talking about this two trillion dollars market cap that keeps going up and up and up. Given. Given. The China risks now now, maybe look they foxconn supplying hundreds of thousands of people if not more than are making these phone so maybe they can't just say to Tim. Cook. Good luck to you but I would think there would be risk if we do this to a Tiktok what kind of a backlash reciprocal. Backlash is China going to have for some US companies doing business there? That's the part I don't understand say knock built into any of the. It it's it's no different than the same conversations we were having during the depths of the trade war. Right? We had these same conversations. We push too hard if the tariffs are to punitive companies are companies like apple, the ones that are going to face the pushback or the retaliation in some way and I think it's fair to say that that that never really came back to these two tech companies I mean, she didn't say where those tech companies were based and and I wonder what the US would do that if if it was being pursued by a company, another technology company based in China but not based in the United States either how would Sylvia's see something like that and would they still threaten to turn off the the APP in the United States if it was not a US company?

Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO

"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good

Microsoft, TikTok officials in White House talks to prevent total ban

"Tiktok is a short form video social media platform, extremely popular with Gen, Z. and millennials during the global pandemic the APP outpaced instagram in of download eating the two billion mark back in April. If you know any teens or adults lockdown and board, you're probably familiar with the platform. Tick Tock has over two hundred, million users us but it's owned by Chinese company Bite Dance, which is where most of the political drama begins United States Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo has consistently voiced concerns about the APPS ties to the Chinese government back in July he lumped Tiktok in with wall way in terms of national security. We are now evaluating each instance where we believe that US citizens data that they have on their phones or in their system or in their healthcare records. We want to make sure that the Chinese Communist Party doesn't have a way to easily access that president trump this weekend suggested banning the APP in the US. We're looking at Tick Tock we may be banning talk. We may be doing some other things that are a couple of options. And Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has confirmed that the department's Committee on foreign. In. The US is reviewing tiktok citing. National. Security concerns, he spoke to ABC over the weekend. I do chair Syfy, which is the committee on Foreign Investment on the United States I've said publicly that it's under review I will say publicly that the entire committee agrees that Tiktok cannot stay in the current format exit risks sending back information on a hundred million Americans.

"Clippers and founder of USA facts a not for profit nonpartisan initiative that is considered the goal. Chew website for government. Data please welcome former Microsoft CEO. Steve Bama they won't it comes to the dentist show. Thank you very much. How things are going in life are you? Are you afraid of you stressed right now. Are you because you are according to Forbes a man who is a billionaire they're worth fifty one point seven billion dollars. Elizabeth Warren. I've heard is coming for you. Are you afraid how. How are you feeling about this whole thing? Is there a one the billionaires or how do you feel about it. I think there's a great discussion to be had about. Who should pay? How much taxes? 'cause I personally would be fine with paying more and yet the mold hold on. He hasn't said how much yes the most important thing. Frankly is that people. Just get the numbers. Look at what's going on today and then you can almost like assign a quota. You should pay this much acts unless you pay that. But it's gotta be based on what we WANNA do. What do we want to do with the money? How much who can pay other expenses? Can we cut. Just just get it right and then the will of the people will decide what should happen. And I'll be okay with. That's really interesting. Whatever it is because you've always been one of the people who said you've said? Hey I don't agree with this idea that the government can make the money it needs just by cutting costs but at the same time government has to do a better job of using the taxes that are connects billionaire. I'm willing to pay more so you're not afraid in life. You're not like stress every day. You know like waking up in the middle of letting Elizabeth. I wake up stressed every day. Are we going to win the only other front. That's good. I feel like I feel like the clippers now. More than ever are not stress. You Have Leonard on your team. You have an excitement in La that I have never seen before this. This is really a momentous occasion. And you're getting ready to build an arena for the clippers which please correct me if I'm wrong here. Apparently you designing it so that the players can hear the crowd more like the raw goes into the court. We wanted to be the most intense hardcore high energy basketball junkies building in the world. I I like the idea but I was thinking I was worried. Like what if a coup stick lead works too well and then like the players can just hear like someone just talking in the stands and the person's like hey honey past the catch up and because like wait. WHO said that you're doing? You're doing like augmented reality. But what I don't understand what that means you say you're going to put people in the game but how what does that mean. What are you GONNA do? We have a set of technology. Today you watch the game in real time it'll give you probability that somebody will make a shot based upon where people are standing. Wow it is. Is it a good shot. What can you expect out of that? It'll diagram the plays that are going on real live. Or Wow this live today today because of rights were in quote Alpha or Beta test right but the stuff exists today. You know. There's limited stuff does this today. There really is no first down marker in football on the field it gets painted in by a computer. It's that concept on steroids. Oh I I taught someone just ran out and did it every teaching us things yet. Steve Teaching US things. Let's talk about the green you here today. Let's talk about USA facts. It feels like we live in a world today where facts are no longer a thing. It feels like more and more people want to live in silos where they believe what they believe. And the fact is something that can be determined by the person who is absorb absorbing the information you've created websites that is geared towards fax. What is USA facts? USA Facts Dot. Org is a website I got into this four or five years ago and I just wanted to understand who pays how much taxes. What is the money gets spent on? uh-huh and what are the outcomes. We get for all of that right and it was impossible to find so I started just sprung around trying to understand my wiping. Hyphen made a comment about taxes. Don't go couldn't do it. Got Into IT and said I should share this with other people. It's very interesting to understand. And and by the numbers by the numbers part of the problem with words is there. Partisan numbers don't know how to be partisan if you will and we've been pursuing it ever percents. We published annual report by the numbers of government in the United States for three years. It's interesting because it's a nonpartisan effort that you've put together where you've gone. This data comes from the government. It's compiled from different government departments and it's factual information but nobody knows how to compile it until now like you've gone and said hey if you want to know how much is being spent on schools in this district you can find out if you want to know how much is being spent on immigration or what is being useful. What the government's wasting on spending on etc you can and use this website? What have you learned from? The website is anything that has changed your mind about how America works yeah. There's a number of things that have really prompted me. If you would said Ed to me five years ago who really pays how much taxes in the US. I wouldn't have been able to tell you I wouldn't have been able to tell you. They're people who you pay more in taxes right now than they earned income that's and then they get benefited. Also by transfers. The come from the guy read rights and you can decide. I think you know whether that's a great situation or not. We let our our users decide. What's age right facts and you can decide what's good or bad? I'll give give me another one. Only thirty. Three percent of third graders of eighth grader. Sardi in this country are proficient in math. Thirty three purpose. Thirty three thirty three percent. But it's up. It's up over the last several. Well you look at it. Assane progress is good right but that's a judgment but education spending at the same time inflation adjusted more than doubled. That's actually interesting. So you've basically created the site because you wanted to break through the whole partisan breaking down of what news is and just go. Here's effect a person at home can decide the that fact means some of the more interesting. Polls that you've conducted dough and USA facts have illuminated a few things. So for instance you've conducted did some. We have a few of these slides here that we can put up now like some of the data facts if you can pull them up they pull like for instance how much do you trust. Information from the president. Republicans forty percent right Democrats five percents and then if you see like the not at all is like a big flip Republicans alike not only fifteen percents. They not at all but sixty percent of them. But I mean that's a big if you look at the next for instance since we have another one. That's really interesting. How much do you trust each source? Republicans don't trust public. TV or radio and they don't trust national TV news and in the next life this one is even even a little bit more more disconcerting. What makes effect likely to be true? If it's verified by scientists Republicans no only forty percent. Democrats that seventy percent verified back thirty percents or fifty seven percent so so this information that you're compiling for people you don't even give anybody an opinion on this we do not we explicitly. Don't give opinions now. This was a poll. We ran ran as you pointed out everything else. We do government data. But we need to know what we're doing right just as even the thing about academics and scientists because you can react one way or another writes the truth. North of the matter is a lot of what you see out of economists forecasts and on every forecast you'll see one on the right and one on the left and they'll say different things. I don't know what you would would. They get Microsoft. I didn't believe the forecast. I only believe what had actually happened. So all of these things have contact. And that's why we have to share. What actually happened? But there's a quote I'd like to give you from Madison. Something in fact of a popular government without popular information or the ability to go get it is a prologue to a Farce or even worse tragedy. And so. That's that's been the facts. Start there with Madison so if I were to say to you Steve Bama Emma as somebody who's been part of this USA facts. What do you hope Americans would achieve by going to this website? What are you just want people to get from the website because it is free? It is nonpartisan artisan compile. What are you hoping it will achieve? I hope we can get to a point with not as much polarization civilized dialogue. People can disagree Komo.

Senator Michael Bennet became the twenty first announced democratic candidate for president which causes a specific problem for the Democrats. What is it? I'm going to say is it the debates were they can only fit like they were going to split them up in two debates, and they could only put like eleven on a stage or there's not enough room at the debates. Okay. That's exactly right. We've known for months there too many Democrats running for president. But now it's official. Now, the first democratic debates say debates are scheduled for June with ten candidates night for two nights twenty spots. Now, there's an extra candidate in the DNC is not happy about this. They don't wanna be accused of favouritism like they were in two thousand sixteen. So they've adopted a policy of pretending we love all our kids equally. The dining room table was only so big. So they're going to have to make Pete. But again, go eat in the garage and the car. It sounds like more like wrestlemainia than it does like there's twenty people. Yeah. I wanna see I want him to do nine each time. And I want him to do it in the Hollywood squares. So the DNC has a plan. They're going to get up at the first debate.

Mr. bomber welcome to wait. Wait, don't tell me. I just I is that story true that the Bill Gates asked you to join him in this company. You're like, I don't know. Like, I don't know drop out of school. What did that need my parents college, and they want me to drop out of business school? Little skeptical, but Bill, what's the smartest guy ever knew. So that was a real positive thing. Right. And so you didn't drop out of college like like build it. He had done that you dropped out of was at Stanford business school. Exactly exactly I do have a degree of leave. I probably. Terrorists were very very happy about that. Did you ever Lord it over Bill because at least I graduated Bill. You know that would've worked for. And curious about this, your parents, you say your parents hadn't gone to college with the first person in your family to do that.

"This is just yet. Another thing closure. I want closure. I want like the last scene of a movie and we're getting like page four hundred seven thousand page. I think a lot depends on what movie you want to see the last enough. Do you want to see like the last scene of return to the jet? I will all the walks are dancing on indoor. Or is it more like lasting of the godfather? Everybody's dead. To look in those two choices known as ever said this. But I'm choosing e walks over the guts. It's more like the sopranos where it's just black. And then you get to decide what happened. So that's what's happening. It's like there's there's like no definitive thing. And then even Muller's letters like I disagree with the conclusions. That you drew about like, he should've let it it was like, you scoundrel, what would have been much more exciting. One of the interesting things about this. That didn't get a lot of attention. This week is that Muller and bar are old friends bar talked about this during his confirmation hearings. They've known each other for thirty years, their wives. Go to bible study together. Of course, bars wife insists the ten commandments are really just suggestions. More than anything else. Imagine how like incredibly awkward these people's game night is they all get together bar, and Muller, or wives. And they're like play scrabble, and it's Robert Muller's turn. And he takes two years. All right Gabriel. Here is your next quote. The fact that it's twenty nineteen and we're dealing with. This is ridiculous. That was a student at UCLA who recently found out that she has among the many people who might have been exposed to what disease making a comeback measles. That's right. Is of course, the disease. That's so contagious. You caught it just because I said it's named Justin. America had eliminated measles. But then people started saying, the measles vaccine was bad for you. So now there are seven hundred reported cases of measles nationwide. And people are freaking out. Parents are trying to deny that they are the problem. No, my kid doesn't have measles. He's a bodybuilder. And that's just bacne. And front knee. Armenian face, knee Heine. So many people responsible for this crisis this anti vaccine crisis. There's the right wing nut jobs left wing nut jobs religious nut jobs, but for -tarian nut jobs. It's so great that in this divided time, we live in all sides can get together to do something deeply stew. Now, the question is yours this cruise ship infected this Scientology ships. So the question is I don't I don't know about. know about. All right. So it's something bad happened to the Scientologists. Science. By the way. You come with you. Assassins in the dark. In the Bronx. So yes, there's this Scientology cruise, and they have been quarantined often island in the Caribbean. Because there's a measles outbreak on board is crazy because measles is not the worst thing to ever happen on a cruise health easels is an upgrade from what you usually get on a cruise. You're talking about the entertainment. Gabriel. Your last quote is from a Burger King customer. If you don't tell anybody. They don't know that man was talking about the taste of a new Walker. The Burger King is selling the first ever Walker that does not contain. What right. Meet me. Very good. Impossible. All Patty, the taste is amazingly. Like beef Burger King offer them as a limited experiment was so successful. They're extending it nationwide. Which could mean that non vegetarians are choosing the burger which is a mazing or it could just mean that anybody who goes into a Burger King is beyond carrying what they eat. Anyway. It's great. It's terrific. I honestly they're terrible off this tastes like beef. But here's the thing. It's still really bad for you. It has to be in order to taste that good. It's got all kinds of fats to make it take that juicy taste and listen to some of the ingredients. Right. Soy protein concentrate. Methyl celluloid so leg haemoglobin. It does sound so hungry. That sounds gross. Just try listing. The ingredients of a typical fast food hamburger head tongue kidney force..

He recently got the letter was a bit nitty. Mr. bar, apparently just didn't appreciate the tone in the letter. He got from whom? I believe that Nicolosi. Peter's big Nancy Pelosi sends letters. Thanks for coming. This is the letter that was leaked this week. It turns out that had been sent to Mr. bar by this gentleman right after Mr. bar had sent out his summary of the Miller report. Oh. No wasn't our president actually writes letters. Really not doing too hot right now. So I'll give it to you. It's Robert Muller. He don't. Better. After years of silence as he was viciously attacked by the president and his allies slandered and threatened a special counsel. Robert Muller had enough his fury. Ignited? He rose up clenched, his fist and typed a letter which was tough because with his fist clenched. He had to use his nuts. So Muller sent this letter to William bar criticizing the way bar had distorted Muller's findings about President Trump. The letter said bars summary did not quote capture the context nature and substance of the investigation unquote bar then summarized that letter to the press saying, quote, Robert Muller says I look like I've lost some weight. There's just such an unfortunate amount of not conclusive stuff. That's going on. Yeah. Feel that way gets it just feels like leading up to the report I feel like everybody even on both sides. You just want like some definitive answer..
