Or access directly at jobs, DOT alliance for Nevada nonprofits, DOT com, or find a link in the nonprofit after things show notes. I am a board member of a tiny grassroots nonprofit. One paid staff member recently I received a private message through through facebook from someone our organization served. This person said they wanted to talk with me about a bad interaction they had with someone at our agency in my role is the board president? Is this appropriate for me to respond to? How best should I handle this situation? Such a juicy question, isn't it you? Know! We're all untouchable. These days with social media aren't we could like? People can find us anywhere. Yeah, and then feel the feel because they were able to find you on link to that. It's totally cool the call. You Yeah at home that night. It's really. Not that that's happened before we're holding grudges or Note! So? I think I'm going to guess that. The relationship that you have as a board is the board you support President or board member just says board PRO president, but it and it says staff members, so we don't know what kind of staff I'm. I'm. I'm making assumptions an executive director, but maybe it isn't yeah, so so I mean hopefully that relationship with with the organization and the board is a really good one right so that so that you're not I mean the probably the reason you're uncomfortable with. This is because you trust the staff and you. You want them to do a good job, and you're just not clear how you should handle that that responsibility is it? Is it your responsibility to be able to respond to that kind of thing, or you should leave it to the staff to do I think in my mind, you know my position is always. Let's just as wide open as we possibly can. I would probably do two things at once. I would reach out to the board chair. The the Executive Director, whoever the staff member is and say hey I got an email from this person. And I'm going to respond to them. This is what they said. Do you have any input before I? Reach out to them so that you can sort of let them know that that's what's happening before you respond, and then your response can be totally non-committal as you want. Which is, thank you so much for your concern I'm really happy to talk to you. However like I'd rather you approach this through the staff that we have whose job it is to take care of this. And let me know how it goes right. Leave yourself open to getting feedback after the fact, but but figure out a way to to turn it back to the staff to let the staff take care of it because. Either you know what there's one of two realities either one something really bad did happen, and this person is no maybe trying to do a whistle blower complaint kind of thing, or they're grumpy. Gus and just don't feel like the free service they got was free. Enough or whatever it is, and they just want you know I want to talk to your manager. Says becky right. Yes, we could all. We can all hear that awful, really the person who had a really bad day. WHO's taking it out on the world around? I'm Lou

The Cheapskate is in the house with some killer deals
"Are you on the hunt for a deal? We've got rick brighter the chiefs get himself on to talk about how to get the most bang for your buck. I'm Richard Chang. And this is your daily charge. What me a rick and Dave Johnson who co hosting a new cheapskate. Podcast FOR US fellows. Welcome Hi Roger. Hey how's it going all right? Let's let's get right into it. Tell me about your new show. What can we expect from the new cheapskate? Podcast right well. First of all talk about the name. It has called. Believe it or not that skate show and You Know David I have actually known each other for a lot of years and we tend to disagree about pretty much everything so you can expect a lot of very amusing arguments on the show. Yeah Rick and I wouldn't disagree Mike if he was white out stuff more seriously. This is the time when saving money a super important and we WANNA do a show that about smart ways to save money with packages. Because you don't want to give up technology because you know dollars type thing. That's a fantastic point. I mean that's why I wanted to talk about today to get a little bit of a a preview. Tease his show I wanted to get some sense. Of what the general buying guidelines right now especially with the economy crashing. People losing their jobs folks just being forced to tighten their belts. What are some some good smart tips for getting the most out of the deal right now right so my first step is going to be the same one I always share pandemic or not and that is to always use a cashback service for anything that you are buying online? I've written about these before and I've talked about a lot about them before. But these services are can really save you a lot And I'm talking about rackets in which used to be known as e Bates There's one called top cashback. If you do a lot of shopping on your phone you'll want to check out one called. Dash and just like you use a cash back credit card for the things that you buy these services. Sorta helped you to double dip a bit and can save you an extra two percent. Four percent. Eight percents at varies from store to store. But you just kinda crazy if you if you don't use one there's there's almost no downside and it's just it's little bits of extra savings that add up over time as you shop online and so by the end of ninety days which is when the cashback payoff happens. You can find yourself staring at a nice little chunk extra cash for my part. I'm going to say something that a lot of people probably already find pretty obvious but always always always saying no to the warranty extended warranties almost never a good value except there's one big exception that I have found out the root trial and error over. The years matters is right now especially with the pandemic people are buying more and more home exercise equipment right if you can't go to the gym people aren't going out running as much. Exercise EQUIPMENT BREAKS DOWN. Right here early if you don't buy the extended warranty on that you can really really run into problems. Downstream and I think rick had the same experience I have where we have bought exercise equipment and three months six months nine months later. It's broken and you lose the whole value of it so I found that the extended warranty exercise equipment and actually really work so surprising to no. I mean these are great. Jobs are there. Are there any other kinds of things that we should avoid or things? We shouldn't be doing when looking for deals around the Internet right. So I'll jump in and say that if you're shopping for Amazon gear and by which I mean like actual stuff that's made by Amazon kindles and echoes and things like that. Never ever pay full price for that stuff because Amazon puts these things on sale all the time and I mean like every four to six weeks you know kind of sometimes for no reason. Sometimes it's because we're coming up on a big holiday like a father's day or anything like that so if you're in the market for you know let's just say let's say a new echo speaker. Whatever at UC selling at the regular Amazon price. Just wait a little while because I guarantee you it will be on sale at some point in the near future and likewise I would say that we always kind of get objective. I think about getting something Shiny brand-new in the box that no human being has ever looked at or before but don't discount refurbished year re. I are great because you can get a dramatic discounts on buying something that's referred and if it's factory refurbished often you get the full warranty. The manufacturer would have given you on a new item anyway. So there's no downside shore somebody else has lick it before. But that's been cleaned up and so you're basically getting a new unit in all but name. Dave I never want to buy anything from you ever just. Just that's why I I don't know what the products law these at these. Tips are Super Handy. I think they're they're pretty general. I'm just curious if there are anything. Anything are doing differently now in our current situation that you might not have done you know prior to this. Probably the lockdown Prior to this whole pandemic of are there things now that we should be more aware of? I mean obviously the big thing is we can no longer rely on overnight shipping or even to today shipping for a lot of things. So you do kind of need to plan your purchases a little bit more than you used to. You know. Obviously if you're shopping for a gift for somebody for example you can't just wait until the last minute and expected it's GonNa arrive in a day or two ninety to budget out a week and sometimes even work. Yeah and for my part. I'm finding that you kind of have to look around at plated other than just Amazon. I definitely fall into the trap of. I used to buy everything I owned from one place and that was Amazon and I like the one stop shopping but I think increasingly these days unique could be open to checking. That's by checking target checking you know Walmart and you know smaller retailers as well because there there are deals to be found and there's inventory to be found so that's that's a really good point we're heading into the Memorial Day weekend usually Memorial Day's great time for sales but we obviously cannot go outside to two stores physical stores to find these deals. What are some of the best online deals? You're seeing well. This is a really good time of year or things that are like furniture bedding mattress related and in fact right now. I have a story up on. Cnn that's that's Memorial Day deal so you might wanNA check that out. I'm finding there are so many deals on things like mattresses and bedding that I can't fit them all story so there's hundreds of dollars off on any of that if you've made up your bed or you want a new piece of modular furniture for the living room. Definitely check that stuff out but there are tech fields to for example. The Novo has a of laptops on special right now and there's a lot of kitchen voice. I Love Kitchen Joyce You know whether the air fryers or ice cream makers or you you name it. And there's a lot of that stuff on specialists. Well all that said this is probably not a great time of year for things like game console. So I'm not seeing any deals on xboxes or playstations that might happen but keep in mind. We're in the run up in later this year. We're GONNA see the new consoles coming out and if you WANNA get VR headset. This is probably a terrible time because the oculus quest which is via hottest headset on the market has been out of stock for months. And it's just coming back in but getting one is really just a crap shoot. Actually let me just jump in here and point out how incredibly wrong Dave is because there is one console deal. That's happening right now. That is fantastic. And IT'S THE SEGA GENESIS. Many which is one of those Self-contained all in one retro throwback console things. It's normally eight bucks but it's on sale right now at Amazon and best buy game. Stop for fifty bucks. So that's kind of a great like father's Day gift item if you're looking for something like that and I just wrote about this on the cheapskate. Belonged this morning so you can find that at CNN dot com slash cheapskate. If you WANNA check out that deal nice says as serious or a big Fan. I loved Genesis. I loved all things. Hedgehog I'll have to check that out now the real reason I have you guys on. It's not not because I want to show it's really because I'm purely selfish and been task to look for new laptop. My Wife She's not a Gamer though. I would like a PC that could run steam for again my selfish reasons but where would you recommend I look? Are there any good laptop deals for this weekend? Actually really are. I think I mentioned earlier when we were talking about the Memorial Day sale. The Novo was having deals right now. You can get like a c nine forty for five hundred dollars off. It's under a grand right now and If you WANNA go with like a thinkpad x one the the Yoga you can save a grand on that. It's only like twelve hundred dollars so again. Check out the Latino. Vote deals Article on Fi net. Because we've got a bunch of them there and I would say that is where I would put my dime right now on Memorial Day. Yeah Roger just want to add you probably know this already but for people who are listening and our maybe also shopping for a gaming friendly laptop it is super super important that you choose a machine that has a solid state drive Am even if it means getting a smaller drive for performance sake. It is going to blow a traditional hard drive out of the water and you could always add more stories later if you need to but it is really worth spending a little extra up front to get a system has a solid state drives instead of just a big old high capacity regular grass. Yeah that's that's a really good point but notre increasingly rare it actually getting harder and harder to find the laptop that has an old fashioned thinning drive in it so I kind of consider that table stakes. Absolutely get enough gate. Okay that's a
In Defense of Wet Markets
"I mean any of this. Had you imagined that markets would be at the center of kind of global controversy. I did not in fact I had planned on being a spectator like everyone else in reading about what was going on and I had an interest in what was happening in the public health level and was surprised when people started talking about what markets and making comments about Chinese Diet's and as someone who's lived in Asia and is interested in in markets. I took an interest in the story so just basic terminology. What is a wet market? Yeah there's so this question of what is what market actually is important. Because there's a lot of confusion about that in the news about it. The term wet market originated in Asia in Hong Kong and Singapore and it was used to distinguish wet markets from dry markets markets. Where they sell packaged goods durable goods. A good example would be the textile markets. You'll find in a lot of Asian cities. A wet market is a place where you sell fresh produce meat fish and seafood. And it's called the wet market because often they are wet One of the ways that these markets clean down all of them. Some of them is that they would hose down the floor. And so that's one reason why it's wet. Also the fish and seafood markets often isis used for packing them. And so that also okay sales. So I'm just I'm just being macabre. It's not wet because it's drenched in the blood of you know of chickens or something. It's it's wet because of is from C. Food and from washing it afterwards. Exactly and actually one of the confusions about these wet markets is that they don't all have live animals. It's very uncommon for them to have wildlife animals and less common for those to be exotic wildlife animals. One of the things. I always make a point here. In the United States talking to people about what markets is that this is actually a normal way for people to get food in Asia in Europe In most places outside of the United States and people don't do one stop shop shopping at a supermarket at. It's more common for them to go every couple of days they WANNA get fresh cheap food and the best places do that are often these local vendors. It's an amazing conversation. Imagine a world in which not. Everything is bought at a win. Dixie imagine a world where not. Everything is packaged sanitize in Saran wrap. That's that's the other thing. Is it even one hundred percent certain that we know that wet markets were the the beginning point of this pandemic? That's a great question. Actually 'em so the reason there is all of this. Interesting markets is because there is a a a wet market Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market in the city of Wuhan had a bunch of people who were among the first that China identified as testing positive for the virus. Now since then alternative. Hypotheses have come out one of them. There is a lab that studied other viruses. Some people speculated it might have accidentally got out most scientists. Say this is probably unlikely. But it's a possibility. I also think you can't rule out the possibility of habitat encouraging their colonies of bats near near the cities. And it's possible that people had moved into the those environments and got an expose that way so there's a lot of uncertainty about where it might have come from. I think one of the reasons why this story as circulated is because pandemic win. These kinds of threats are coming. It's really common for people to want to look for some way to say that this is not going to affect me so they very quickly looked for some evidence that this is because of some other things from other people and so people looked at the United States and in Europe said. Oh it's these wet markets. It's weird bizarre Chinese habits with food. They eat. This isn't us and it was a way to sort of scapegoat. Their anxieties at the danger. In this of course is that it causes people to ignore out their own cultures. Have these risks also causes not to take at measures to protect themselves from the epidemic in so many places were slow to respond to Africa in our own country? I think you'd mentioned lay all the famous food market in the center of Paris as an example of of how we have lost touch with With this mode of shopping as city urban planners have come through the gentrify and kind of clear out the the messy noisy organic chaos that any great market necessarily includes. What have we lost here in the West in moving away from this style of shopping and and and eating you lose that sense of community for the family businesses? They can't live elsewhere often. They live near where these markets are. And it's not practical for them to to move their stand to the new markets and so often the end of those family businesses food markets are deeply integrated into the local communities. And that's one thing that gets lost another thing that gets losses. I think in consumers in especially in the United States but you can see this happening in Europe as well lose a sense of where their food comes from so in the past the the wet market. The food market would have been At the entry point of cities would have been at ports river ways. The food would have been there at if they had live animals. People have seen the animals that they didn't they at least would have seen you know the the animal carcass and had a sense of where the what what the food and the meat was coming from as it gets moved backstage outside cities like the way we haven't the United States people who are seeing package wrapped foods and they don't have a sense of where that food is coming from and it often these moves because they're pushed by the city. They often favor as certain companies often bigger companies over the smaller smaller vendors interest so it also contributes to to that change through a long. You know a century long battle for PREMACY IN TERMS OF SHOPPING HABITS. Do you do you think. Wet markets will survive. Are we doomed to kind of a corporate Supermarket Culture. You know throughout the world. I hope wet market culture survives. I also think there's an ass I think there is a growth and supermarkets in Asia. And I'm sure that after this crisis they will probably be more successful than a lot of these Margaret. Because THEY'RE LARGER COMPANIES. They have kind of cash reserves to handle the kind of crisis. They're more likely to take their business online. So even in China has been a growth in online shopping and they're probably going to capitalize off the concern about safety in wet markets and the perception. That if you package food and you processed food it's safer and I say perception because again. There are plenty of outbreaks in the United States. That we've had in terms of packaged produce or in terms of meat that can be traced back to our EILLY industrial system. So it's not. It's not unique to wet markets that said. I hope that what markets will continue in there. Some sort of irony in that. There is a growth in interest in these kinds of markets. They're popular with tourists. You can see this hike place in Seattle so the popular tourist. Because it's Kinda more. It seemed to be a romantic authentic way of getting a sense of local food culture. There's a lot of interest in farmers markets in the United States because people want to have a more connection to the people actually produce food right. I think even though the big story looks like the rise of supermarkets and disappearance of these markets. I think there will be a continuous of them.
WhatsApp Pay to Launch in India
"India a potentially decisive moment in digital freedom is going down right now. India's ruling party has put forward new rules that would allow it to trace and censor private communication. Standing in. Its way is what's up. An American made encrypted Messaging Platform. That's used by hundreds of millions of Indians and the outcome could have ripple effects across the globe. I'm Gabrielle Sierra. And this is why it matters today. India's government versus what's up and the looming threat of digital authoritarianism. India is the world's largest democracy if you can imagine nine hundred. Million PEOPLE VOTED. Alas national election last year out of a population of one point. Three billion people. It's just it's it's a massive exercise election. Yeah it's huge it's populace and that's what also makes it really fun and exciting to be on the ground. You certainly feel the energy especially in the city like Mumbai. Politicians routinely insult each other on the campaign trail criminals of every flavor. Run for office and win so do Bollywood movie. Stars Cricket Stars it just never ends has always been a fairly Jackie democracy. We talk a lot. We argue a lot that our culture. Okay so help me understand why. What's APP is such a big deal in India? How many people are actually using it? They're awfully four hundred million people. It is indeed this is Chinmaya ruined. She's a resident fellow at Yale. University and the founder of a research center at National Law University Delhi. She's also a leading legal expert on the intersection between freedom of speech and technology. And so why WHATSAPP wine? Not you know instagram or snapchat. The elite platforms are used by everyone. But what's happened? The one that really appeals to people if you have a phone that's not too fancy. If you don't speak English you don't read or you don't have access to inexpensive data connection. You can still use. What's APP so it started with? Hey you don't have to spend one rupee or two rupees per tax. You just save them up and then they send whenever you're in Wifi and saw a lot of people with not lot of money. Which is many many Indians decided that this works for them. And then what's up had these multimedia features which people started using it started liking and? I have mixed feelings about this because the good thing is that I get to talk to my grandma. And she finally has forgiven me for moving across cushy can look at my home and you know say things about my plants or whatever course but if you're sitting in an Indian airport and watching the number of people who do video calls subject you to their conversations mixed feelings what's up is really a messaging platform and that can be one messages like me sending a message to you. But it's also very commonly used in India for groups. I am do oil and I am a technology reporter for the New York Times based in Mumbai. India vindaloo also covers Indian economics and culture and has written extensively about free speech and misinformation under India's ruling party. We called him at his home in Mumbai on. What's up what's has become so embedded in life in India that people use it in their business transactions so you can order groceries from your corner grocery store over what's APP. I buy airline ticket from make trip. Which is one of the big online travel agencies? They send me a confirmation message on what's up with by e ticket details so for those of US based outside of India handling a basic transaction may require a few different platforms. You find out about a concert on instagram. Rsvp FOR IT ON FACEBOOK. Maybe share the notification on twitter buyer ticket on ticketmaster and received the confirmation on g mail but for Indians. What's APP is often the one stop shop for everything? In other words an application from Silicon Valley has become basic infrastructure for the second most populous nation honors. That's a pretty big deal and it helps. Illuminate why the government is pushing for greater control. What's up was founded in two thousand nine by two former employees of Yahoo? It's an American company. It was founded in Silicon Valley and they basically built a very simple messaging service became very popular. It caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the chief executive and founder of Facebook Zuckerberg beside it in two thousand fourteen to by what's APP and pay the still stock price of twenty two billion dollars for this message company so facebook is making a mobile push with steal the buy real time messaging service. What's APP? It's still a pretty incredible price to pay for a company that stress a few years old. It also makes tiny what's APP more valuable than some of the most established companies in the country including American Airlines Marriott hotels and Xerox and it came at a crucial moment for facebook when it really was trying to find ways to diversify its revenue base and also get in touch with more mobile users. I'm Seema mody global markets correspondent with CNBC business news and suddenly came this messaging platform. That was not only gaining prominence here in the US but around the world in fact I believe the average daily use a rate on WHATSAPP was much higher than Facebook Messenger. Facebook saw that and said this is such a strategic bet for us. Let's acquire it and find a way to really incorporated into our user base platform. But what's APP is free right. What's APP is free? And I think this is still a developing story to see how facebook is really trying to incorporate what's up into its business and you know will you one day see ads on what's that that's certainly been one of the big questions sucker. Berg was pressure in that. This technology of very simple messaging APP was going to become very popular today. Whatsapp has more than two billion users. Around the world it is by far the most popular messaging APP in the world and one of its biggest claims to fame. Is it emphasizes privacy. All messages on the service use. Something called end to end encryption. Okay so in most cases when you send an email or a text message it gets encrypted that means that the information inside is locked up in a code so that outsiders can't read it however the service providers that pass your message along can read it whether that's apple or G. Mail or facebook whoever they all have the keys to that code and that makes your message vulnerable enter end to end encryption with this technology none of the men have the keys. Only you and the person you're sending it to break the code. What's up can't read. Even if the government came knocking at the door of what's up what's up. What have nothing really to give up. And so your information is private and that makes it unique to other services messaging services like whether you're sending a text message or even facebook Messenger where that information does live somewhere. Yeah most other. Messaging Services in the world are not and encrypted and certainly none of the popular ones. But what's up has made it really easy. You don't think about corruption it just is encrypted Because so much of India's communication happens on WHATSAPP end to end. Encryption has made it very difficult for the government to investigate messages in the name of national security. People are not making phone calls anymore. They're not even walking over to their neighbor. Say This texting and where the speech there is harmful speech. It's not news that social media can bring out the worst in people the platforms. We use everyday are teeming with sexism. Racism misinformation and violent ideologies. It's the same. In India or social media has amplified problems that are a lot older than the internet rumors and lies spread like wildfire across the Internet including across chat and applications. Like WHATSAPP Many I. I'm used US India or live. Whatever comes in the woods his true the one that's really made the headlines is there was a lot of fishers. He'd speed circulating on what's APP so for example. The Muslim community is under quite a lot of pressure in India. Right now and it's really sad one of the ways in which they're discriminated against is that some upper caste. Hindus don't eat beef and so the rumors circulating on what's apple say things like X. has beef in his fridge are why is transporting COW CARCASS. And since it's already been sold to people as it stretched to their religion when a rumor like that reaches people that already feel threatened and feel like these people are out to get all the Hindus and they're trying to destroy religion by eating beef and Lynch mobs attacked them and their popularly called. What's APP lynchings? Early twenty eighteen. There was a wave of false messages. On whatsapp about child kidnappers prowling parts of India. Trying to steal people's children and this panicked a lot of people and mobs attacked strangers in various parts of India and killed them. Beat the Tied the mob hung them all kinds of terrible things. More than twenty people died in just the span of a few months because of these rumors and after these rumors started appearing the central government. When after what's happened said you need to find a way to trace these messages and stop these messages. And this set off a feud with what's out that has still not been resolved. The government says it doesn't WanNa read your messages. The government says they don't want to spy on the content of messages. They're not asking what's up to break the encryption of messages and show them what's in the messages but they are saying. Is You need to be able to trace back the pathway of a message. And you have to find a way to do that because if you have some message goes viral we WANNA find out who sent it and we'll see what happens. I mean what's up has said that to that would require significant changes to their service and they haven't said whether they'd be willing to make such changes to their
"stop shop" Discussed on The MacCast
"Actually a series of questions from Listener Graham. He was wondering about two factor authentication rather he was starting to activate two factor authentication on his accounts but he had some questions about it. And so. Here's what Graham is wondering I add them. This is listener. Graham from Portland Oregon. I've been doing a lot of hard work. On upping my password security lately and I've done a deep dive into two factor authentication. I think I understand the basics but I'm trying to think ahead to situations where I might get tripped up. Now I'm using the Google Authenticate Irap but what I wonder about is what happens if I lose my phone. I know that a lot of sites provide backup codes but are there other ways that I can get in that are easier can I set up authentication on two different devices? So if I lose one I can still get the correct code from the other device now. I know that password programs like one password. Also have to factor authentication generators if I changed from Google authenticate or two one password. Let's say do I need to turn off two factor authentication for all my devices on the site or is there an easier? Way To make the switch from one authenticated program to another what? I'm hoping that you'll be able to give all of us your best advice on how to be prepared. If you lose your phone while using two factor authentication Thanksgiving for the show. Adam I never miss et Graham. Thank you for being a longtime supporter and longtime listener and contributor to the show. I really appreciate this message. I think you're probably not alone in a lot of these questions that you have. I'll try to answer these questions kind of in the order that you gave them in your audio comment there. I think the first thing that we talked about was the backup coats you know. Is there other options? Besides the backup codes to use in case you lose your devices and have no other way to get a two factor code and Fortunately or unfortunately I guess fortunately is probably the better way to go. The backup codes are going to be what you need. If you've completely lost any kind of access to the two factor option so if you don't have any other devices set up you only have the single device you lose or you lose all the devices say something catastrophic happens a some sort of natural disaster fire or something like that and you lose all of your devices backup. Codes are going to be something you need. And that's why I recommend always putting those two factor backup codes into a password manager. Something that syncs with the cloud syncs with other devices like one password. I actually do it either as an attachment to the record in one password or right inside the notes for that record or just even create a new custom field for those backup codes. However you WANNA do it get it into a secure system. Some people will actually print them out and put them into a safe deposit box again. You're GonNa want them some place. That's offsite or onsite and offsite however you want to do it but you WanNa make sure you have that backup. So if you're using some sort of other offsite or cloud backup system that could accomplish the same thing they're really your last ditch emergency effort and why they're called emergency backup codes. Or what have you now? You can have the authentic cater APP on multiple devices. I think it was the next thing you asked about. You know can I set up these authentication codes on multiple devices? Yes you can now with the authentic cater APP. It's a little bit trickier because you have to have some foresight You can't have scanned it in to one device and then come back later and add another device unfortunately to do it on multiple devices you're GONNA half to set up the same seed by scanning the same. Qr Code at the same time on every device so when you go in to set up the two factor authentication get all your devices. They're ready to go. Make sure they have the authenticate or APP on all the devices that you want to set up at the same time and then when you turn on two factor authentication it presents that Qr code Scan it on all devices at the same time that way they will all have the same seed and they will all be generating the same codes If you had not set this up originally that means you are unfortunately going to have to go back remove or disable two factor authentication for that account and then re enable it to set up all of your devices. Now this is one area where using a two factor authentication scanner built into your password manager. If it's an option which it is with one password as you noted Is In my opinion a little bit better because one password can actually sync all of your passwords via the cloud and also sinks. All of your two factor. I think than occasion setup across all your devices so you don't need to have all your devices there when you set up two factor authentication if you use. The two factor scanner built into the one password APP. So I'll just scan it in one password because one password sinks to the cloud and thanks to all of my other devices they all get that same. Two factor seed in that way. They generate the same codes no matter what device have so it could be my ipad. It could be my Mac. It could be my iphone. They're all going to give me that number that I need when I'm setting up the two factor authentication so That's a good thing. It's also worth noting that for Apple. Id's and I clouds. When you set up for your apple accounts two factor authentication all of your devices do get set up and included in that pool so by default you kinda get multiple devices if you have multiple devices registered with the same apple. Id or Apple Account For two factor authentication with Apple. And you have the added benefit of that any device that's participating in your two factor authentication with clouds say you can generate manually code from any device. Should you need it to do this? And we've covered this a few times on the show but will cover it again. Just open up settings on your device tap on your account name at the top of the settings tap on Password and security and then you can tap get Verification Code. And you'll get that standard pop up that you normally get when apple sends out a two factor authentication requests so when you're trying to log in to. I cloud say it will alert you on your device and say here's the code. You can pull that code up anytime on your device by using the manual method and would-be just like launching the authenticate APP. But in this case it's built right into your device so that's another way to go. I think the third thing you asked about was changing from one authenticated program to another Just like when you're trying to set up multiple Google indicator APPs with the same code. It is going to be the same process switch from one to the other. There's no easy way to go about it. You are going to have to go log into that account. Go into the security security settings for that account disabled two factor authentication for your old authentic cater. Rian able it using the new authenticated scan. Qr Code to get that new two factor authentication seed so I don't know of any like simple one. Stop Shop where you can do all that. It's not built into the password managers. You do have to do it per account and so I know that could be a little bit cumbersome but you're probably going to have to do it that way just overall you know I'm GonNa say this whole concept of two factor authentication and what happens if I lose my phone concern. It's a big one for a lot of folks and so you're right to bring it up. It is a big concern. I think it's one of the biggest factors in a lot of people not adopting or using two factor authentication because they think it's scary but it really doesn't have to be a big deal if you just take the time like we are now to sort of understand how it works and understand that it's important to save those backup. Coz I think the backup codes are really key because again if you lose any one device or all your devices those backup goes are going to allow you to still get back into your account. Change the settings setup new devices all that sort of thing as long as you have those you're in a good place and again if you put the into your password manager and sink all that stuff. You are going to have that stuff. Just make sure they're stored in a good secure location. And then add on top of that. Some of the advice we gave here setting up two factor authentication support across multiple devices. Makes all this stuff. A little less scary. At least I would hope once you start getting used to two factor authentication and using it more and more you'll see it's ultimately a really good thing and it is not that hard to manage or setup. It feels daunting at first But it it really is not too bad and you get more comfortable with it over time. I do think At a password manager application that has built in support like one Password. Really really does help in this arena. Another thing to remember and the last thing we'll close out with is a you know if you do lose your device one of the vices that's participating in your two factor authentication. You'RE GONNA WANNA make sure that you go in and remove that device from your accounts so again you're going to have to go back to all of your accounts you're GonNa have to use your backup codes or an alternate device to log into the two factor authentication go into the security settings and make sure you remove that device from participating in all of your two factor authentication stuff and this is when having all of that information your passwords your two factor authentication backup codes everything in a centralized single password manager like one password is really going to come in handy right so you want to remove all of your old devices same thing if you sell a device right if you sell a device or get rid of a device give it to a new family member you have to remember to go back into all of your accounts that it's registered with and remove that device from those accounts so that it's not attached to that anymore. I think that's almost a little bit more cumbersome but again if you have it all in a password manager you can kind of go through and see where that is you might even want to in your password manager tag which devices are logged in or setup to be authenticated through different accounts and that sort of thing so just another thing that can make password managers a little bit more Useful right so thank you for the question Graham. This was a great one and happy to be able to try to address it here on the Mat. Cast and I hope it helps you out any additional questions. You know how to find me met cast g mail DOT COM. All right last thing that I wanna talk to you about. Today is a quick thing..
Taking Stock in a Stimulus
"Twenty me is motley fool contributor. Dan Klein Dan joining us from Florida. I'm at my home in Virginia. Dan How are you doing well? I was supposed to be in the office all week but this is the next best thing. Dan. I was supposed to be in the office all week. These circumstances are unusual. But thank you for having me on. The circumstances are in fact unusual. And it's great to have you on so let's get right to it. The Dow down around six percent at the time of our taping so a familiar familiar story and Dan. This is all playing out. As Congress debates a trillion dollar stimulus now that stimulus would include relief for small business and relief for some industries as well as well as direct cash payments to Americans. What do you think a stimulus means for business? And what do you think it means for investors I think for business creates a backstop. It sort of says okay. I'm GonNa have whether it's alone to draw on the ability to not run out of money at least in the next six weeks for investors it gives you a little bit more confidence in riding this out. I mean look we can see who the winners and losers are right now but we also know that some companies that are going to be losers. Remain really strong companies. I've talked about this before but take starbucks. They're gonNA take a huge sales hit but they're still a great company. So can they pay employees? Earn all this. A stimulus will help that. And part of the discussion of the stimulus is sending every American somewhere between one thousand in two thousand dollars with some income testing. And I have to say I have mixed feelings about that because you and I were still working and in fact I would argue that for me. There's more opportunity to make money right now for very unfortunate reasons so I don't want to check for the government. I want it to go to the people who work in the restaurants. I go to the stores. I shop at Not Someone who's able to keep working through the crisis and so along those lines Dan. I know one of the suggestions that you made. An industry focused one of our other podcast. Yesterday is with some of those restaurants that we frequent if we can't go there in person or if they're losing our business that one thing you can do right now is you can buy gift cards. Yeah I mean we've still been doing takeout. My building has set up. Takeout can be dropped off like sort of in the front of the building with no human contact. You go down to it. You know you can wipe off the containers if you're worried about that because you can't leave it at my door. 'cause delivery people aren't allowed past the lobby and yeah you could buy gift cards. I mean look. I'm going to call the person who cuts my hair and offered to pay for three in advance. I mean you need to help the people in your world keep going and Dan. Let's talk about a business. That is really really struggling. Boeing shares of Boeing down around seventeen percent. At the time of our taping. Now Boeing has lost around two thirds of its value this year and I apologize for our dog barking in the background. But that is appropriate for the Boeing Story. Now the reports that Boeing maybe asking the government for as much as sixty billion in assistance. What do you think the future? Looks like for Boeing. Have very mixed feelings about this? Because Boeing has not been accompanied they've managed for shareholders not employees not to run the business. So I would want any bailout to look like the auto industry bailout. Where it's the government takes a stake in it at the company can may buy back at a higher price. This should be loans on the other hand. Tens of thousands of people work there. And it's a backbone part of the US industry. We need to be able to manufacture airplanes. That's important so I do think that we should save Boeing but we should demand some changes in how it's run just like we did with the auto industry and let's move on to retail a a really entering story here with Walmart today shares of Walmart hitting an all time high so we have so many retailer struggling. We have a lot of big retailers that have closed their stores. Apple macy's Nordstrom again. Dan Walmart hitting a new all-time high. I think we're seeing the investments Walmart made in being on channel really paying off. They didn't have to change to offer. Curbside pickup dated invested in curbside pickup. They didn't need to build out a supply chain to deliver. They already had it. So there are some items shortages just like Amazon is experiencing runs on toilet paper and some other things but I know here in Florida if you go to Walmart which admittedly. I haven't done it a few days but I did over the weekend. Walmart had most things. They've spent billions of dollars and there was a lot of debate within Walmart. Whether that was money well spent and now. It's very clear that however consumers are able to get stuff walmart is capable of getting it to the way and the same could be said of target could be set of Amazon. These are the companies that are winning because they have what people need could adjust their supply chain to have more water toilet paper rice. Whatever it is people want. And that's going to take a few days but shortages are going to abate and that's a testament to how well this company has been built and when you talk about companies that are winning. I want to kind of flip that and ask you win. All of this shakes out. What do you think are some retailers? That might have a hard time bouncing back. Yeah so I think if we look at any sort of bailout you need to look at whether the company was successful in the first place. I don't want to spend a dime bailing out a JC penney or pure one or even bed bath and beyond sears definitely because these were companies living on borrowed time. Anyway I mean of all of those I think. Jc Penney had a tiny percent chance of turning things around but these are companies with very little cash on hand that needs to make major changes and don't really have the ability to do that so I don't think at the end of this. Any of those four will exist but I also would have told you that if if I had to bet if they still exist in two thousand twenty one. I'd say probably know anyway. So it to us very unfortunate language. This is going to cause the sick to die faster and Dan. Let's talk about a company that is having a really really good day. Shares of Blue Apron. Have more than doubled today. Yes that is today now. Blue Apron delivers meal kits. So you can make your meals at home. Blue Apron was struggling before the Kroto virus and at one point was exploring strategic options. There is speculation that they might have to sell Dan. When you look at companies like Blue Blue Apron do you think there will be a real change in consumer behaviour over the long term of change that could revive blue prints business so I think there will be a mild change? I talked about this a little bit with Emily on industry focus yesterday. I think there's going to be some people like my mother who are somewhat tech savvy but hadn't used services like Insta- card or Grub that are going to get exposed to them and they might become occasionally users after do I think consumers are gonNA stop eating out and stop shopping for their own groceries in favor of massively buying blue apron as they might be doing right now. No but in the short term I think they are going to add new customers and of those become occasional customers and if they can back some money and pay off some debt and being a better financial position they can slowly grow their user base so this might be a blessing in disguise where they can maybe add a ten twenty percent users for the long term but also sort of do blockbuster business right now so again. I don't think that you know we're not going to eat once. This is over but this is good news for a company that was right on the edge of disaster. Dan One of the things that I loved a breeding was a story. You wrote about whole foods and it just reminded me that there are some retailers taking some real creative approaches to this crisis wholefoods opening its. Us stores an hour earlier to customers over the age of sixty and a lot of local regional grocers are doing the same thing you're going to see Walmart and target. Do the same thing what they're doing is they're opening an hour early at whole foods to let people sixty and over into the store at a time where the they won't be around. Young people. They'll be less chance of them. Contracting Corona virus. It will also let older people shop at a time where they're not fighting with perhaps more able bodied people for the same goods. Whole Foods is also closing two hours earlier and that's the facilitate restocking the shelves. Now they're still going to be open for pickup orders. They're still going to be delivering Amazon prime orders during those those hours. But they're going to take the time to make sure that when they open in the morning. Everything has been put on the shelves from the back room that they're well positioned. There's really no reason to be open late hours. People are available. They don't have any place to go. And I think you're gonNA see more and more retailers adjusting and sort of doing these smart things now. They haven't said if they're going to verify whether you're sixty years old I'm guessing this is the honor system but this does seem like a very smart thing and no putting on a wig or doing anything you know putting a little grey in your hair like. Let's let's keep this honest
Awe & The Arc Of Creation
"Hey Karen Hutton and welcome to the woo. This is a show about photography inspiration and life and the intersecting point where they all play together. Play cards go to coffee tea? Think deep thoughts. That's US so welcome to this episode. Which I'm calling it all and the Ark of creation on the way I see it is that ideally the creative arc is fluid. It moves from inner inspiration to outer creation. And then you're building into the next expression of the thing and the thing in this cases photography but it can be anything that you're creating anyway. It moves out and then comes back again with joy and delight rinse and repeat. That's how it Oughta go but how often goes as I've learned from clients and the folks who show up to my talks on these particular matters is like this it starts the same way. You have an idea an impulse or desire you need something you WanNa create and in almost as soon as it pops in this niggling doubt starts to creep in. There is a little shadow. Is it any good? What if the weather changes Amil landscape photographer? So that's always part of the conversation to have the right gear. Will I know what settings to use will see the best angle? Will I get my shot? What if I go all the way out there and it's just a big fat? Nothing but you take action anyway. Because you're not taken you pack up you drive out set up your tripod and you have at it and you results fall short at least in your own mind and you feel disappointed. Some part of you says Oh. I knew that was going to happen. So you judge the whole experience and yourself you feel bad in that fun you have all these crazy thoughts like what's wrong with me. I should just give it up. I need a better camera. I should take up knitting kind of freaks. You out and who wants to feel this crappy ever again but again you're no chicken. See you go back to the drawing board. You watch some videos. You do some more reading on what somebody else did. More technical help right. I mean I hear this scenario over and over and over again and what happens. Next is the really sad part because of that continues long enough. Your mind is all jumbled and it stays that way for a while and it takes a while for a new idea to cross your mind but eventually it does this time though. It's a little soft. It's a little weak. It's not fully formed. You doubt it's any good by itself but you know you should get out there again so you opt to create that guy who's video. You were just watching because clearly. They're better than you and must know what they're doing right. At that point your Muse has no more good ideas. Your soul goes off again and eventually you quit. And I'm not making this up. I have had people tell me this. And that's why they show up to my talks to my retreats and workshops whatever because they're trying to crack the code on this ongoing nasty gram in their mind and break free from this exact spin cycle of creative. Hell why do I know it so well? That's a whole other episode. I know this one I know this one and I know my way out of it and I share it liberally. Everybody says if there was only a one stop shop to stop the madness but wait. The whole point of this conversation is that there is so. Let's have a little talk about all. I sort of feel like I buried the lead but I wanted to paint the picture of how people really do suffer around their creative process. If you're not one of these people congratulations. I am really happy for you. But for the ones who are for the ones who kind of have this awkward dance sometimes with their own creative flow. I WanNa talk about all. Aw is one of those things we all know about and maybe we either almost take it for granted considered a fairytale or something. It's just not generally thought of as a practical ingredient to actually ask for and stir into the mix to prepare for to look for to come to expect as a critical ingredient in photography art and life. But it is it's huge. I mean you wouldn't leave the chicken out of the chicken soup would you? I mean it's like that it's that key and nowadays there's actual quantifiable science behind the effects of awe those of us who are artists and live for that experience. We know about it. But I'll tell you what thanks to Decker Kellner and the greater good science center at UC. Berkeley we've also now got a long list of facts and figures to back up this conversation and not consider it totally. Woo Kazmi talking about creating art from it. Living from it purveying it. Teaching it was one of the reasons people started calling me. Woo in the first place. Sometimes I was an affectionate pat on the head sometimes a whole lot more of a brush off but I always knew for sure that aw was the one stop shop for me and now thanks to science behind it. We know why. And we know that it's a one stop shop for anyone who chooses to open their heart and their mind to the experience of awe in every day and in grand ways they're calling. Aw the ferry dust of emotion some are even referring to it as the eleventh emotion. They usually consider that basic. Human emotions are either a list of eight or ten. They're considering ought to be the eleventh official emotion. It's like the New Star in the Galaxy Decker. Kellner defines it simply as the feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends your understanding of the world boom. It's like the crack that lets the light in and after that. Well you can't push the light back out and nothing is really the same after that you cannot unseen or une feel the experience of awe and in fact we humans are hardwired for it. It's something we want we desire. It's how we're built to live through that Lens. So here's some things about how all works are short circuits. Doubt it sneaks up on you it puts you in the moment I mean right now. It feels you with wonder it makes you curious. It's like a touch of the divine and it's proven to be good for the immune system for brain function for cognitive abilities. Social Interactions. I mean the list goes on and on. It's incredible and here's why it should matter to you as an artist. It shatters expectations and expectations. As many of you know our what's GonNa go wrong or they're limiting or they're based on what we think is possible when so much more might just be possible off stops us in our tracks and it makes us listen with new ears and see with new eyes in ways. We didn't expect as I said before and in ways we didn't even know we could which is why it shifts your whole perception instantly and in so doing it instantly enables us to see the ordinary in extraordinary ways. Which is why you don't have to wait till you hike to the biggest mountaintop to experience. Aw although there is no I can promise you. There's no doubt that that is an awesome off striking experience. But you can find. Aw in your office I mean aw is everywhere if you tune your mind to it. So that's what I mean by enabling you to see ordinary in extraordinary ways it's the same shift and it creates instant. Mindfulness like boom right now. A lifetime of study can't do what odd does instant and like I said before it. Lets US experience fastness greater than ourselves our souls genius and shape our creativity around that instead of some old tired ideas about what somebody else did or worry about the settings of your camera it shifts creaky old patterns that are creative arc has been stuck in and our artistic voice explodes and I say our because I'm in this to you know I don't talk about this like some expert on a hill. This is all my experience as well so I can verify it. I know this is how it happens. And I lead people through this experience through my retreats and sometimes through my talks so I've been boots on the ground with this for a number of years in a formal way and now of course thanks to decker. Kilter got some science to back it up but I know from empirical experience that this is how it goes. How do you know this is happening? How do you know it's just a trick of the mind? That's what some people do wonder and I'll tell you it's because your body knows your body is hardwired to give you information. That is irrefutable. That is smart and that is true when off strikes. That's when you get goosebumps that's when your tummy leaps. Not because you're sick. It's like the butterflies. You know you get that tinguely tickly butterfly. Oh my God Oh my God. This is amazing. Feeling your heart beat faster with excitement and glee you gas. You laugh you you might cry you might be you know tears of joy. I've had that happen. Just burst into tears over. The whole experience had no warning about that. You might even break out into a light sweat. I mean hey who said creativity was passive new ideas pop in new ways shifts everything. It's incredible those are all signs empirical signs that all is in the
The Link Between Obesity and Cancer
"Both cancer and obesity are serious health risks. Let's look at some data about the increased rate of obesity. The National Adult Great in two thousand sixteen was almost forty percent. This is even sadder that child obesity rate was just under twenty percent nationwide so obesity has increased by seventy percent over the past thirty years for adults and children by eighty. Five percents crazy. What does that mean in reality? It means four out of ten adults over. The age of twenty are considered obese. Carolyn O. That's just oh then the thought of that is just you know. Are we headed? Yeah where are we headed? And we see every day but You know it's really scary. So the American Cancer Society estimates that forty eight hundred new cancer cases are diagnosed each day each day. That's nearly five thousand cases daily so the lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is slightly more than one out of three people. Wow how that's really scary. So researches found that about five percent of cancers in men and about eleven percent of cancers in women can be attributed to excess body weight however the connection between weight and cancer can be quite complicated so some studies suggest that on the risk for some cancers if he'd appear to be more for people who are overweight as a child or as a young adult so. I think this is really alarming because as you just said over the past thirty years the obesity rate for children has increased by eighty five percents. So where are we headed? Where and you know I love. I love where we're going in our society when it comes to decreasing fat shaming and decreasing The all of the the love your body as its as it is and I love that however we have to look a little deeper in. Are you putting your health at risk? Because that's really what's important here. Loving yourself is fantastic and But we WANNA look at. What is the risk factors attributed to obesity? And when I think back to my elementary school days it really was very rare to have more than Really one overweight child and class but today teachers tell us that many children need classroom are overweight or obese. And you have to ask. Does this mean as these children are aging that they're at a higher cancer? Risk It could go very high so that. That's the scary place. Yeah it really is so listeners. You might be wondering. So how does obesity actually cause cancer? So let me see if I can explain this a little bit so we all understand. The risk You are taking. If you're carrying extra body fat. You know many people who are overweight frequently. Stop looking in the mirror you know. That's not very comfortable right or they refused to be weighed or they you know they. They won't way themselves and they won't themselves at the doctors. I don't want that lecture Yeah No of course not or maybe. These people stop shopping for clothes until they lose some weight. A man like I hear that I'm not gonNA shop because I need to lose some weight and we've all exactly but do they lose the weight. Unfortunately that just doesn't happen and as Dietitians. We've heard it all right now but I don't think most people realize that extra body fat is really increasing. Their risk for cancer perhaps to really seriously Understand a about losing weight. Many people who are overweight or obese half to realize the results from these decades now of research it's involving millions of people and this research clearly shows the link between being overweight or being obese and getting cancer. So what I want you to realize. Is that being overweight or obese is much more serious than just how you look how you look in the Mirror. Of course of course once again How could be in a way cause cancer? Let's look at the biochemistry for better understanding our listeners. Fat Cells make extra hormones more growth factors and inflammation. And when you have extra fat is specially around the liver pancreas heart and kidneys the fact consistently sends out messages to the rest of your body.
Why Strategic Planning Is Important For Small Business
"So yeah topic today. Title Net flicks worst nightmare. What's the worst nightmare eh? We've talked about this a lot but maybe we haven't talked about it on air. I don't think specifically so obviously when we were putting the information together You know we talked to one F lakes and article in Forbes magazine by Stephen McBride and one of the things that says which will then pull from today is that the net flicks in the last decade. Their stock has risen to about eighty. Five hundred percent has risen by eighty-five hundred percent. That's not because streaming ozzy caught fire. I mean streaming is like first of all the word streaming was invented. Because of what Netflix does I know like no one used the word really like streaming in relation to viewing things until Netflix really came along and now it's like streaming as his own category which is impressive. Whenever you can create its things Hastings Reed Hastings Ya Hastings company that like the smart brands words words right Amex? Yeah exactly. It's like netflixing. Chill not exactly that one. Maybe actually. That's he can miss his better thing. Big You're like old married couples. That's what they say will take Shade Mahar in the tender tender account. I don't F- looks to me Netflix. And Chill and has put Netflix ongoing asleep so because the different indices sold as me. That's the that's what I do. They netflixing watch Netflix. Watch me so anyway. So net flicks achieved those gains. How do they do it? They literally disrupted video rental the whole industry. They stole millions of customers. Oh no not even just a video rental like they they were beyond that streaming actually took away customers from the large cable companies. Millions of cable companies loss customers at the hands of readings Netflix. God I'd love to be able to drop Kale. I know I have a way to watch sports without having in cable. 'cause that's literally. The only thing tying cable Youtube Youtube Youtube. TV Okay Forty nine ninety nine a month all regions force not end more mass. Let's check that. I have it now but accidents because I still have direct TV. Once they cancelled DIRECTTV next year. I'm GONNA switch completely over to Youtube. TV sweet actually be free. Leave so so Netflix. Still literally tens of millions of customers from cable companies because so much content yet you know I can literally don't I can't even tell you what channels are what on cable. All I know is that you'd have to hit five hundred to get into like your hd but after that. Ah I'm just hitting like the page until I fall. Oh there we go. That's what I WANNA watch. I can't tell you anything but you WANNA know what's on Netflix. I know all you know what I mean like. I'm always always watching documentaries. And movies and everything so yeah I completely feel that way. It's funny because articles here says says that Last year half of Americans a twenty to forty five didn't even watch a second of cable TV. That's crazy isn't nuts. Wow that's true disruption. But here's the problem. oftentimes when there's a a good idea invented where comes out disrupts the whole marketplace replace what happens competition. Man are the big boys get into the they see going on they get they own honestly that Pie. So that's what's happening right now. Man Disney plus who you name it right there all stripping away so my net flicks is Grip tight grip on this on the street. And there's more coming. Yeah like because all licenses that netflix expiring or not renewing because those major are those major television and film houses are taking the licenses back in creating their own streaming service. You know that's crazy. Yep so the point of this. Is that Netflix. Says worst nightmare would be that what they did the cable. Obviously it's going to happen to them. Yeah we'll be done to them. Do you think that people would cancel their netflix memberships. Though like cable 'cause I see it as a way where people just reduce their netflix subscription. More so than. Cancel it because Netflix still has like so much offer. Yeah that's a good question so we extrap- extrapolating out. I'm looking at it that we would have to reduce it because they still put out some good stuff. They have netflix originals. That some some of them are actually really good now some of the NFL. So I think it's just what I've talked to house of cards. Yeah this is why I've talked about affair with you that I still feel the same as that A little bit off topic but I think me personally for the end consumer. It's a disservice to them. Because you know in a world where everybody is like I you said I'd love to get off the cable. Save some money when you really start to do the math. It's like I think. NBC's starting to get their own thing. Soon we're just reading in in this article. Eighteen tease looking to start their own already. Disney plus we already know Hulu and some of these other ones when you break down all the different subscriptions that you're paying for. It's like Mike expresses went up not down exactly. So how much is Netflix is. Net flicks is fifteen. ninety-nine that's how much I pay and then Disney pluses twelve ninety nine. It's all ready twenty nine dollars here and then Hulu Hulu Netflix and ESPN. But then like let's say you get get what's the other one Like NBC. What if they come on you know what I mean because they have the office and they have friends? It's in frazier and I think those are like the top things that are watched on Netflix. And I love Frazier Frazier okay. Oh don't forget the apple apple plus came out to Oh did it yes apple pluses apples streaming service. And that's like four ninety nine one hundred dollars for cable or three hundred for seriously seriously. But you know what's GonNa Happen is that it's just going to be things that people watching cancel. There's going to be this. Subscription does monthly subscription service. This is going to turn into people turning on and turning off being hop skip like I just already heard of people doing that with the mandatory now that it stopped just cancel their Disney subscription. And they'll come back and they'll come. I'm back and so what happens. Disney just lose revenue because people are leaving and coming back. That's not the kind of when you have a scripture over. She won't be able to be subscribed for life like you don't want cycles of three month customers and then come back this and that it's just like you know you know. They really is a paid. But the reason why we bring this up in the entrepreneur. Life is because as is entrepreneurs. This is going to happen. Competitions part of business is you know especially even if you have something that disrupts the market as much much is a net flicks people come in Nelson and got this really great idea. No one else is doing it. There's no competition and they could be right there. There may not be any competition. But you can't assume that it will always be that way if it's that good of an idea and you have a hold on the market share. Some point people are going to be like wait a minute. They're gonNA wake up and be like oh we gotta do. Is You know you look at Netflix. Netflix is paying Disney And NBC and some of these other companies. A little bit to be able to have those shows on Netflix. So now they're looking like dead. Their stocks rose eighty five hundred eighty five hundred percent percent eight thousand five hundred percent yet whether I want some of that. Yup Well I guess the other thing too is I the reason why we put with is in. There is because it's like like you said like this is going to happen as a small business owner and I don't think I think the wrong I think to wrong reactions to to competition so I'll I'll start off with my own example. Is that when I moved to the city block them on in open a facility disability down there in downtown Boston five years ago when I first open I had four competitors today I have twelve. Which kind of tells you the state of number one the industry that a man number two tells you that there's no market research done uh-huh in some areas but then the other thing too is like it tells you that you know like there's going to be competition and you know you're competing for the same dollar if you think you're competing for the same dollar? You're you're mistaken you're competing for fifty cents and you had to. You GotTa just be careful if you want to compete for the whole dollar then you have to outperform everybody to get that dollar like significantly. You don't have to be a one stop shop but your value has to be tremendously high. You create value. We've talked about it a million a million times and we had a podcast the segment about creating value. How to do so? Go back and listen to that. I think is episode thirty three. Yeah and that's what they're going to have to do here. So what right. So that's the thing is like okay so that so so I was just giving you. The example of how market competition using my example can come into play. And I'm sure for you. I mean I I went went from four to twelve inches my block but for you. I'm sure even bigger than that. You're you're industry. Because you have comp- you have to deal with both companies and individuals
End of the Year Estate Planning for Entrepreneurs with Brian Price and Jennifer Gligoric
"Brian jennifer say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people people don't know as brian you know one thing people boasts don't know about me is actually been practicing martial arts for about ten years and i just got my second degree black belt in karate we'll an hey what's up fire nation this jennifer and most people don't know that i can play play all woodwind instruments and all melodic percussion because i was drum major and but that was a long time ago so they don't they don't know that now the stuff both you guys thanks for sharing that and as i share with fire nation the intro we have quite a doozy even episode talking about end of year estate planning specifically for entrepreneurs which of course makes up my audience entrepreneurs on fire and let's just kind of get right into this because a lot of people all must be frank they think that a final will and testament is actually an estate plan like their coverage they have one or the other but that's just not the case so can you jump in here share with fire nation what the two are why they're different and what entrepreneurs specifically should have number one a real is is not like a full estate plan there's a lot more that goes into an estate plan including having directives medical directives pour over will if if you have assets so estate plan is a lot more comprehensive and will usually involves some sort of a trust the idea of an estate plan is to avoid probate and probate can happen with a will if it's contested and under a variety of different circumstances so it's much better to have have an estate plan rather than just a will and i'm sure richard can tell you more about richard richard gula here he's our attorney here at leafy legal and and he can tell you more about the different ways that you can get caught up it is contested contested very cool well listen i know we have bryan jennifer and richard on the mike and i'm just gonna say this right now you guys all have good audio quality but definitely avoid this shuffling the papers because we got four people on the mike at august august picked up so for clean audio stop shop in the papers and fire nation will appreciate that so richard take it away i think one of the things as far as sped jennifer mentioned was specifically about probate and that's one of the things you always wanna voice simply because when you have a will you have a proper estate plan to glean that the happened probate the hell is happening outside of how you want it to happen so when you have certain directives empowered returnees put in place when you have a great estate plan put together by at at least a will at the very least you can at least have things done in the way that you want to be done except when you do it through probate kinda happened the way the law wants it to happen and just being honest a lot of times the way that certain laws are naked starting laws put in place it hasn't happened exactly how you want to happen so he may have other individuals he probably don't want to get at the house or you probably don't wanna get the vacation hogging because of probate that's how it happened so that's one of the issues that you want avoid especially when it comes to probate now can we get maybe an example example from any one of the three people on the mike right now about what has a situation looked like you don't need to use real names or real places i know blah blah blah you wanna protect checked identities but i think having a specific example would be cool like when has somebody not been prepared in this manner this really blown up in their face so i'm going to tie in something that just happened this last week to another situation that was very similar to this so you have a young couple couple the husband and wife love each other very much say the child before they got married and then they ended up getting married her parents parents are very strong willed people they come from a very different type of background and they weren't too happy about the whole new son-in-law situation they weren't happy they didn't get married married before the baby was born they're not happy about a lot of things but they're trying to make it work obviously the closest the couple was lot closer to his family family they decide to go on vacation it's a great cruise there with you know a big cruise line that everyone's heard of they stop off at an excursion that's given by the cruise line and tragedy strikes they don't have anything in place by the time one of them wakes up none of the bills have been paid the child is living with her parents which is something that they would never ever went to have happened the house that he just bought was lost because none of the payments were made even though him and his wife had talked about how that would happen it would have been his sister but in the shuffle the strongest people the people you don't think of come out of the woodwork and they kind of push around while everybody else grieving and nothing they wanted to have happen so we had this happened in the news this last week there was a royal caribbean cruise line went and drop people off at a volcano excursion and yes it's an active volcano anything could happen but a hundred people were caught up in that and they had absolutely no idea many of them were young couples some of them had kids there are some survivors but people lost their lives right now i'm gonna tell you this situation is playing hang out in a variety of different ways with the loved ones in survivors of this and if you don't have something in place that is powerful awful then who knows what you might wake up to so everyone wants to think about this and you know this is when i'm elderly this assist wait on down the road and i'm going to assure you know it's not you need to start thinking about this now and i hate to be such a bummer bringing everybody down and but the thing that won't bring you down is when you go through something that's comprehensive you get this paperwork done yet it's not fun and but then you can feel completely free and you know that your plans are taken care of and you don't really have to worry because when things go wrong it's a lot better if it's already mapped out for you from the bills to the kids to what happens with your business you know if you're an entrepreneur if you're a real estate investor you're doing doing deals on houses you you've got all this stuff in the mix and you don't have to lose it all you can't continue at you can have plans for it and then if you were to pass away it can it can be distributed the way you want it to be distributed without the government coming in and really messing everything up probate probate i've never heard of single kobe that ever ever happened where people were happy with it well i hope you bring people down what i hope you're doing is giving people a backslap of reality who need it because the reality for you fire nation is you have loved ones in your life you want you need you should be prepared hard for tragedy to strike hopefully it never does but as we know every single day by watching the news by listening to the news tragedy does strike strike someone somewhere every single day it's just reality so thanksgiving that personal example and a couple of personal like real stories because i know that it just kind of really resonated with people such a deep way than just like these vague broad terms that a lotta people hear over and over again but don't really get what that means what it comes down to and speaking of which that's what i want to move into next is that we've used a couple of times and that's probate so let's get real for a second and define what probate actually is and then very importantly how the heck can we avoid probate probate is about basically win win there's no real time that that assets are going to be allocated when someone passes away someone goes into those assets if they don't have a trust or if the will is being contested basically it's when the government gets involved to say ey what happens to those assets normally what happens is basically taken by the government it and then they're gone through scrutiny in order to determine where where you know where those are actually gonna go what happens in a with with with if there's unfortunately children or something like that or you know mostly it's it's with all your assets you know where those people who gets them how do they get to those people and whatnot in so most of the time is stock and so you can't do anything with it you know you hope that you know it it'll be done soon but you're basically at the government's you know timelines and things like that and they don't move very quickly and so not getting any kind of probate situation is ideal for anybody
The time you lost watching YouTube ads last year netted Google $15 billion
"The parent company of Gulu reported. Its earnings Monday night here to give us. The highlights is our technology news editor. Boda Boda thanks so much for joining US happy to be here all right so alphabets. Most recent report. Back in October was a bit disappointing. How did they fare this time? if you're Wall Street just slightly more disappointing with some shoots So one thing that was Wall Street was expecting Revenue to be a little a bit higher than it was and operating profits to be a little higher than it was. Now Mind you. Google is wildly profitable and has makes a ton of revenue just in the most recent quarter. Which is the holiday quarter Revenue was up seventeen percent to forty six point one billion so. It's kind of difficult to say that you know Google struggling by any stretch stretch But one thing that Wall Street had pressed alphabet for a long time to be more specific about where it's about where its revenues coming from and one thing that it did really league for the first time is really to break out specifically the youtube business and Google cloud in terms of revenue categories. And one thing that said it for you to the AD business isn't stallone Is Worth about fifteen billion dollars and Google cloud gave details on that as well and the idea is really. The clubmen is really important. because there's a google title is enmeshed in a really really difficult battle with Other cloud providers like Amazon with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft with your and Wall Street was really wanting linked to wanna Google to provide more details and just say like okay. Give us an idea of how well this businesses stooling so we can rate it relative to some of the other competitors this was the first earnings parts and senator betrayed took over as alphabet. CEO from Google Co founder. Larry Page last year. Pichai was obviously formerly the CEO of Google. Is it too early to have expected there to be any changes with his leadership or are we seeing some of this play out because of Him taking the helm so I think one of the things that he he mentioned on the call and this is something that obviously he was with Google so he was an insider very familiar with the business but one thing that at Wall Street analysts basically basically said on a conference call to say we welcome this additional disclosure. Like some of the you know giving a little bit more detail on some of the business units that That comprised like the alphabet machine. So that's one thing that they had pressed Sundar on in the company and the company delivered in that way but you know Sundar more you know big picture wise. One thing that he talked about was you you know he talked about what is investing focuses are and one thing obviously talked about artificial intelligence that being something that the company really wants to deeply invest in and he talked about really the you know the idea of doing more with data and so cloud computing is something that they've pushed a lot on We've reported Sometimes exclusively on the health partnerships to Google's reached. And you know basically Sundar said is we're going to reach even deeper into that So not just project. Nightingale which again is a project to work with essential health and to manage to manage crunch data for millions of patients across the twenty one St Hospital System but identified other partnerships. Like that and another thing that brought third call in kind of pointing to where strategy is going as activision blizzard. The video game company They recently announced a deal where they said okay. Well we want to stream these East sports matches on Youtube. Meanwhile activision will basically invest in US Google's cloud services and also use artificial intelligence tool. So Google wants to say like. Hey we don't want to just manage one thing for one business. We want to be a one stop shop but basically offer a bunch of different services to companies to make the value proposition. A Lot. A lot a better in terms of the Google Health Collaborations that you were mentioning. Is that something that they're already being able to monetize unclear so some of this is you know. They're trying to make an argument that we can add value to what you already do. So in some cases we WANNA manage data That's something that the their services services that Google is providing as part of a package now if a company wants to use Google as a cloud service provider and we WANNA put data in the cloud. That's something that obviously that they're you know. They're they're collecting revenue on There other parts of the alphabet enterprise like verily severely as life sciences company and. What's unique about this? Is they've taken outside. Investment vestment from tamasek which is Singapore's Sovereign Wealth Fund and they've also taken investments from silverlake which is private equity firm in the idea is basically to a look at different ways as to really impact the healthcare system beyond just Beyond just patient data so one of the things that that fairly is doing is they're looking at license engineering research search and as a part of that they're looking at like how how they're one look at additional ways to basically impact the healthcare system so some of this is going to look at Using am to improve drug delivery of some of this is looking at a I to improve clinical trials and the idea is to basically say okay. How can we use data and and a I to basically impact the healthcare system so some of this already having revenue impact for Google? But some of it is. They're making these investments to own these partnerships and basically we see this as a long-term bet that this can drive revenue down the row. These are obviously things. Though that have already garnished a lot of scrutiny. Both from people in the the healthcare community but also from regulators and Looking ahead to twenty twenty one of the things investors. I'm sure will be paying close. Attention to is has the increased scrutiny from regulators on all sorts of fronts so when facebook reported its earnings. They said they expected their growth to slow. Because of new legal measures from California And also in Europe how is alphabet addressing the way that legislation could impact. Its business moving forward. So one thing so so google didn't go They didn't give necessarily a number to say we think we're going to grow twenty percent Next year one thing they said is they kind of went across their business unit to say we think for search. There's going to be ample opportunity going forward. So what does that mean is that is that a lot of money is a lot more money than you're making now is it a little bit less Google basically positioning itself that it thinks it's bizarre that it's various businesses are going to grow And basically they're making investments it's to support that I think with on the Regulatory Front Google definitely said that it's going to cooperate with You know any broad probes inquiries that That it receives from entities like State Attorneys General or the Department of Justice or any or any other entity. And you know a lot of the regulators are looking being at Things that they're looking at you know Google's largest and the and the things that basically make this company so big and you know so it's looking at the the girth of online in advertising business and purported anticompetitive behaviour and in the big picture like Google is basically motoring along in thinking that you know it can man you know it can continue to invest in the business while managing these inquiries you know at the end of market closed today. A ghoul alphabet crossed a trillion dollars market value. Now now it's kind of wavered between their ethnic you reach that earlier this year and then trade at lower but you know the big picture these tech companies are you know for the most part Wall Street is seeing that you know despite everything that's going on in all the noise and all the frustration from regulators and some users you know Wall Street and investors still see these companies as a safe you bet for the most part Wall Street analysts think these companies are going to grow so you know based on company based on public statements and based on. Just you know how large it's GonNa it's GonNa Behar to disrupt Google and search. It's going to be hard to disrupt Google in online advertising just because it has so much of a market leader in so much So much of a installed install customer base. One thing that Google touted on its conference call is that it had a really strong holiday season. And with that you know Google is basically been investing and building out his platforms for consumers. So that you can buy more stuff within Google tools instead of like if you wanted a hotel if you want to book a flight instead of going to other airlines or other hotel pages ages you could just do it all in Google and you wanted. And they've talked about. Hey we want to find opportunities to allow people to make more money within youtube and you know the the the the value proposition for advertisers is great. Because it's like hey if you can get everyone here it just you know. Millions of people use Youtube. Everyday people already here if you can just put more tools and bake more ways that they can make more money inside of this. Why leave it seems like it seems like a good deal? It seems like it's setting themselves up for an even bigger conversation with antitrust just regular though and especially some of the Democratic candidates who've come out saying that they wanNA break up big tack. Did they make any comments about that on their call Not Not not to the extent you know in terms of addressing the inquiries. I think you know usually the companies and Google speaks in broad terms and you know and says hey you know the companies understand that they are targets. And you know they're not you know they see the headlines just as much as everyone else but I think in terms of their focused on The you know the businesses and the value proposition that they offer to consumers and folks and businesses well and you know they see You know they say that they're going to cooperate in any manner with any regulatory pro- which which makes sense but in terms of like going specific in? Hey we're going to change our approach because of Xyz you know for the most part you know the Probes are are just that you know. They're you know the attorneys general and you know folks from the DOJ there on a fact-finding mission. They're trying to understand. Not just google. Oh but from others like what impact Google had in the marketplace especially when in terms when it comes to anti-competitive conduct and you know from Google's perspective obviously there they they see themselves as being able to motor along and you know as these probes circle but for the most part there is. This isn't necessarily changing. How they're going to do their business unless someone tells them you need to change your business because of reasons? XYZ And tell then ample growth our technology news editor vote today. Thank you so much for joining
The Pharmacist Is Out: Supermarkets Close Pharmacy Counters
"To be easy enough to pick up medication and prescriptions at the pharmacy inside the grocery store but more grocery chains or closing their pharmacy counters as they lose the battle would large drugstore chains in Wall Street Journal. Reporter Sharon trollip is here with some details so Sharon for a longtime grocers saw in-house pharmacies as a way to bring in shoppers. Not only did they bring in chapters. Were relatively easy to start up. There was low capital cost. Aw there you know didn't require a lot of employees so they were a really good way to bring in shoppers and generate some more revenue. But then the big boys in the form of the big drugstore chains came to Yes and that changed everything not only did they have new competitors as these big chains. And we're talking about. CVS AND WALGREENS bought up smaller chains They became bigger. They get more market power and then. CVS in particular started buying other pieces of the healthcare industry. CVS Now owns at the insurer. Aetna it has its own pharmacy benefit manager which is a company that negotiates prices so these big chains have a lot of power now and so these individual drugstores is part of the larger chains have really become one stop pharmacy shopping places for for consumers lately particularly in the last year or so both CVs and Walgreens have been working to make their drugstores a one stop shop for patients really and particularly patients who have chronic diseases. So not only. Can you get your drugs and get a blood pressure test. Plus you might. If you're diabetic you might be able to get your annual tests. You can get advice from you at clinics where you can get medical advice diagnostics. And and they're only this is only begotten services are expanding but it's also a sign of consumers changing shopping habits as well consumers are getting more and more of their goods online grocery is one of the last things to to shift to online but it is shifting to online and also consumers are getting their prescriptions more and more in ninety day chunks. So they just aren't going to physically pick them up as much but grocery chains like Kroger have fared a little better than some other regional grocery grocery companies. Sure because a lot of this is really about market power so kroger is the biggest grosser in the country and it's one of the biggest pharmacy chains So one of the things that happens with the bigger change. CVS walgreens even Kroger. They can negotiate deals to be preferred providers and they they can shut out an entire regional grocery chain in this type of deal. Kroger has a little bit more half's than a regional chain with thirty stores you know. There's a really tough balance Alan's here because consumers want very intimate service. They want that mom and pop feel and they had that in the smaller drugstores but then we just talked. What about the changing shopping habits and something has to give? Yeah and I think this is an area where grocery chains in particular are disadvantaged even two independent it. mom-and-pop drugstores now these independent stores have been closing in legions as well. But you'll find a lot of loyalty to the hundred year old chain on on main street whereas you know these grocery chains follow a little bit in the middle ground. I mean there are a little more personal a little home but a lot of people just aren't really that attached. It's to the grocery store pharmacy. Alright that's Wall Street Journal reporter Sharon Turnip with US Sharon. Thanks for coming on the

It's time to quit your Amazon ditch in and start shopping elsewhere for the good of the country for the world for the internet after the disaster that is called prime day. Let's face it. Amazon is to popular and just cannot take all of our love lemme. Explain on today's episode of talking tech, I'm Jefferson Graham with USA today. So as you know, the heavily hyped prime day sale was so eagerly awaited it crashed Amazon systems preventing seemingly hundreds of thousands of people from being able to shop for a few hours now of Amazon, the world's most efficient. And what I thought was best run. Ecommerce company could not handle the July, sixteenth rush will no one could, which leads me to only one inescapable conclusion. Amazon needs you to leave and go to competitors best buy target, WalMart, Costco. H photo. There's a long list of etailers who should be getting your attention. They work just as hard as Amazon. They just don't have your love. Now. I know that in general, Amazon is so easy. It has great prices. You make a selection closure is and the product arrives when you wake up or so it seems, but the gap between number one emailer Amazon and all the others is so wide. We need to even up this gap according to researcher emarketer Amazon has a whopping forty, nine percent share of all e-commerce transactions worth two hundred and fifty. Eight billion dollars in two thousand eighteen. Number two is all the way down at six point, six percent in it belongs to EBay, which mixes in a lot of used with some new. Then apple at three point, nine percent retailer, Wal-Mart at three point, seven percent and Home Depot at one point, five percent best buy is in six place at one. Point, two percent. Now we all know that for a hundred and nine hundred dollars yearly. Amazon will ship things to you within two days and also show you a bunch of streaming movies and TV shows you probably don't wanna watch guess what folks WalMart offers free shipping as well with no membership fee on minimum orders of thirty five dollars with the price of goods these days that is not a hard minimum to meet best. Buy target, have the same free two day shipping on orders, thirty five dollars an up. It middling WalMart best buy and the target websites do not make shopping as easy as Amazon does. There's way too many clicks involved there, but what would happen if we started shopping there more often in maybe help best buy, for instance, triple its market share from one point, two percent to three point, six percent. Maybe the retailer could then invest heavily in the website and make it more welcome to our dollars. Okay. So Amazon has a hundred million members of the prime service. That's as large as. Practically the combined populations of England and France. That's a lot of people to take care of. You know it. I know it. Amazon cannot handle a s- any more. If you love Amazon, do the company a favor and start spreading the wealth. You will help level the playing field make Amazon better and you'll be a happier human. What do you think which etailers should be? Number two, Amazon, I got my choice. What's yours? Let's talk about it on Twitter at tradition.
