"K traditional job versus investing in In in hazy from hazyview when another era and planting crops. That's good for the area. It's a tree at the end of the day. You know after three or four years. You'll get your entire lenient and your kids. Kids can live off of those trees just by taking off Looking off to them instead of you working. You know in a traditional joke years and if you lose that job they're not going to employ your child just because you had a particular job but agricultural opportunity for us to really create wealth and we need to demystify all these concepts of the industry hides behind and we need to make the tools and resources accessible for somebody who wants to go in and to do it and and i come into the industry knowing zero about it. The true story that you need to know much about it to get the ultimate goal that everybody talks about in the west in here. Is that whole form to folk three. I think it's one that is very possible but we need to be intentional about it. And we need to begin to demystify. You know the fact that you in africa with all the arable land or property still thing is still shocking you know and i think the worst form to folk dream is something that can easily be realized but we need to demystify the myths. Take away the big lies about the industry and allow access because the land is abundant of and opportunities in. The industry are abundance. I think is going to take time. It might take us ten years. It might take us twenty years. But i think we can get closer and closer to that dream by demystifying. The supply chain supply chain is where it is because the incumbent a making a killing with very little effort kind of making a really really big killing in that gear for us to get onto team need to demystify but even for the people that hold are not necessarily farmers. We need to begin questioning cooler. We have this concept of what it called. Great food and out concept of great food is not necessarily an eight grade tomato because it's miles round shape them shiny but want to ask people to really ask themselves. If you're biting into apple if you could taste the experience of the former That actually produced that apple if you could taste the logistics if you taste just the experience in the supply chain to really ask yourself how would that apple actually taste and almost trying to really set the highest standard for great food to not only look at it as just meeting the spec because a lot of farmers in huge it. They are hand-to-mouth But we just have to receive an apple that looks nice In china without taking you know that really questioning the supply chain. I think the role of the general public is really to begin questioning. Where does our food come from and the cocoa story. I'm sure choice wants to be that everybody knows ohio africa essentially has the woods cocoa. But we not you know sort of gaining a value from that but we just happy to eat chocolate happy to just eat the chocolate without really questioning where that comes from and i think the challenge. The public is to really embrace this concept of great food and really question. Where does your food at the end of the day. Come from because in doing that. We can move the continent and thing any other industry can make as much change to the state of the continent as agriculture can an already the fact that eighty six percents of the worst rural communities depend on agriculture for an income to tell you about the reach of the industry and the fact that it can really reach certain areas of other industries cannot necessarily reach. It just has a really bad. Pr hey community. Let me thank you for your upcoming for snow. Sanyo supports on social media in the upcoming weeks will be introduced in french. We we're fringing it up..

"Price journey and the example that i made with daniel you want to get daniel as close as possible to the agra process as close as possible to the end you know the supermarket as close as possible to the end to the empire and allowing former essentially get the value basically possible because of the role that they play but not only allowed almost access to markets. Because everybody talks about the buzz. Phrase of excess to market access to market is not going to happen without proper logistics. Every falmer has fully certified trucks logistics environment able to acquire. You wanna be able to give them access those trucks and basically essentially all that goes into an order be locked in the various services that put into them having excessive successful delivery to one to allow that to happen because there's no need for a farmer to be incurring huge upfront costs in buying inexpensive truck. When are major logistics companies. That are looking for business. And at kula. One to enable these farmers a to essentially have access to that end the access to markets. Problem really begins with connecting the right farmers in the right plan. Perhaps one way to think about it. It's almost like tinder.

What Actually Happens to the Things You Throw in the Recycling Bin?
"Happens when we throw something in the recycling bin. Drop it off at goodwill. I think there's probably two different supply chains. This is probably a pretty complex answer. But i wonder if you can kind of get us started from opera. Sure sure well i. I love the fact that you used the term supply chain. Because that's exactly what it is. If we just talk about recycling you know if you put something in a recycling bin say an aluminum can and nobody wants to make more aluminum cans oldham camp. It's garbage even if it's in the recycling so you know that's what i always tell. People about recycling is recycling and making stuff go together and if nobody wants it. It's garbage if somebody wants it. It's recycling and so generally speaking the stuff that you put in your recycling bin somebody has a real incentive to find a place to make it into something new whether that be the municipality that handles you recycling or the you know the company where you drop off your old car. They really have an incentive because if they find somebody to buy it to make something new into it. It's garbage in that costs money to dispose of so where to stuff get manufactured these days a lot of stuff gets manufactured in asia but a lot of stuff still gets manufactured here in the united states. You know roughly half. The steel in the united states comes from recycled supply. You know automobiles being number one Paper you know as we go through this pandemic cardboard huge volumes of paper and cardboard packaging for the amazon boxes. Is the your recycling. Bin is an important component of the supply. Chain for making those boxes so it generally goes to people who want it for making new

How Trifecta is Hacking the American Diet With Trifecta CEO Greg Connolly
"Let's be honest. The vast majority of americans their overweight. they're obese. we're talking not just like over fifty percent. We're talking the vast majority so what specifically is wrong. And how are you setting about to fix it. It's a great question. And getting into the business being savvy entrepreneurs i'd i i always encourage people to look deeply at the problem. You now think thinking through the obesity of damage. Most people are like. Oh it's personal choice. People just need to pick a salad instead of a mcdonald's big mac and if you look back over history going back to the eighty seventies and even sixties.

Like leave it to beaver style You now have women working right alongside men fifty sixty plus hours a week like like my wife That created a environment in the economy. Where getting food quickly became the key.

Well it just say they obliterated yes the but the same time i have to ask you elect guy. Did on squawk on the street is somehow the magic lost. Because this wasn't good quarter. I mean i've got the same question for you jim. I'm sitting here. And i'm seeing the stock down to three tenths of a percents and i'm wondering the same thing. Tesla beat revenue by four percent. They beat earnings by more than fifty percents and the stock is down. So you know. I'm a little bit surprised honestly. Because i think tesla did crush it. Maybe some of the comments on the earnings call weren't what investors were looking for but Yeah i'm definitely super happy with the results personally. I think that when i saw the numbers they were terrific on the call I described the the com school as pedestrian knitting described manufacturing processes and he described guide the same thing that ford gm say which is supply chain issues semiconductor problems. Is it possible when he says that synagogue shortages this quite serious that it's actually maybe for the first time i'm hearing under promise. So maybe overdeliver if he gets those semiconductors i definitely think that's part of it. I also think you just want people to appreciate the challenges that the industry and tesla's dealing with right now And in light of those challenges just setting the results against those they're even more impressive I think probably to some extent. That's what he wants trying to get across. Obviously he you know doesn't necessarily word it in those terms He's not really about the short-term stock price but I think that's what he's getting at is just how difficult things have been and yet.

Future Work in Local Food Production
"We have a serious food problem. And according to the international monetary fund the price of food has skyrocketed from a low point during the pandemic lockdown in april twenty twenty food. Prices have increased a whopping forty seven percent. And if you shop weekly like i do. Then you've certainly felt the pinch our once. Reliable agricultural model scaled a food pipeline driven on abundant water supplies millions of acres of rich farmland a huge supply chain and cheap labor the pandemic and climate change destroyed that model to feed the nation in the world we must pivot to a new economic model that supports future work in local food production and jobs and local food will support millions of people in need and their communities. Here are some key considerations for supporting future work in local food production first food that travels long distances to grocers loses its nutritional value instead growing local food ensures. That consumers are better fed and that leads to better health outcomes especially in so-called food. Deserts second agribusiness draws billions of gallons of water from sources before consumers can get their supply however parts of california are into their twenty first year of extreme water scarcity by contrast local food producers use water more conservatively and a local food system enables more people in need to access clean water even when water supplies are low third local food. Production can provide good jobs to people entering the workforce. It also doesn't require advanced degrees to do and work skills. Needed are often easy to learn and adopt

Chip Shortage Prompts Fake Parts From Scammers
"Semiconductors can be found in everything these days from your coffee pot to your printer your cell phone and even your car. We've been talking on this show. About how high demand during the pandemic has led to a global chip shortage. Will now. it's taken a more dubious turn. Fraudsters are selling fake chips to companies. That are desperate to get the components to complete their own products joining us to discuss. What's going on and what it means for. The company's caught up in it is are asia. Based tech reporter stephanie. Yang hi stephanie. Thanks for joining us. Hi thanks for having me. Tell me about these scams. How do they work. And who are they targeting. Yes so an interesting wrinkle of the global chip shortage that's going on kind of wreaking havoc with a lot of different manufacturers right now. Is that the desperation that people feel trying to get these chips. That are really hard to sign right now is that they're running into fake parts aka parts. That don't work or that have been counterfeited. And so what that means is that they buy apart from perhaps a seller that they haven't tried out before because their usual goto distribution channels are out and then when they received the part they realize. Maybe the markings look off. You know maybe the put it onto their board and it doesn't work results in failure and then they're left with a bad part. How did these supply chains normally work so normal times when there isn't a shortage of chips a lot of buyers buy directly from the manufacturers or from authorized distributors who are licensed to sell chips on behalf of the manufacturer's so the concern about fake or faulty parts isn't as high. Now what's going on. Is that a lot of those channels are not available to buyers and so they have to venture out into secondary markets. They have to find new vendors and with that comes greater

Yeah exactly right like this. Is i would say the one other sort of like big thing that we we've yet to really talk about. Which is that numerous businesses largely in leisure and hospitality. But not just that area have voiced. I i don't know. Frustration is the word but have certainly found hiring to be much more difficult to be expected especially coming out of a downturn and even much more difficult than it was pre crisis at economists of all kinds of theories for why of but it's clearly a phenomenon of this environment that makes this moment Distinct and is posing challenges to various managers bosses and companies. Yes so. I'm obviously not in the state so i've sort of been watching this issue from afar. It's not such a big thing in hong kong. As far as i can tell. But i've seen some of the anecdotes about this like you know signs on the front of fast food restaurants saying that you can't open today because they don't have enough employees or some of their employees didn't show up i also know it's a very heated issue at the moment with you know it's sort of like a classic labor versus capital kind of issue at this point with a lot of the companies blaming workers and saying they don't wanna come back to work because they're afraid of getting cove it or because maybe they're getting unemployment benefits through the government and so they don't feel compelled to go to work and then the workers saying wow if you really want us to come back. Why don't you actually do something to encourage us and raise wages. I mean that's the obvious thing for them to do

"supply chain" Discussed on The Global Politico
"Own role in shaping them? Absolutely. There's lots of unpack here but I think a few things are worth noting I mean first of all, as you mentioned Louisa, China, has been the single largest driver of global economic growth. In this century it's not really even close. It has become a market that. Multinational corporations do not feel that they can ignore and it's become. So tightly integrated with the global economic system that I think it's a little bit impossible to imagine a full decoupling right and that word decoupling is somewhat problematic because it's inherently binary you're either couple of you're not. The truth is that we're going to remain more coupled than not and there's not much that anyone presidential administration. Can Do to change it. They mentioned the word decoupling and we've been hearing that more and more often in political debates. That suggests this is a marriage. Is this a bad marriage? So. We've used various metaphors to describe the U. S.. China relationship and I I like the one I. Like to use that foreign policy is like high school with nuclear weapons. There's fewer than two hundred people in this observable universe and they all have to live with one another I mean look fundamentally, we live on a pretty tiny little jewel of a planet floating a very large. Black Space and the US and China are the two great powers. The two big economies, China is the world's most populous nation. You don't really get choose who's on that planet with you. Take me back to this high school I'm really interested in this high school I'm interested in. Lunch table. So who is China in this cafeteria and who is the United States? Oh Gosh. Forcing me to reach to sort of bad. tropes. Various various movies I've seen over the years or God forbid my own thinking back to my own high school experience Oh my God I mean I think it's pretty clear that. The US wants to push China away from the cool kids table, and it's actually in the last year or so seemingly had a lot of help from China itself which has really strained its own relations with a number of countries in Europe among others with Korea, I could go on I think China's Wolf Warrior approach to diplomacy does once again invoke some of those thoughts about how you might comport yourself in high school. But when it comes to this question of decoupling I just don't think that the numbers go down so. There's been some good studies NOCCO. Polo a think tank looked at apple suppliers by region and it compared twenty seventeen to twenty one, thousand nine when U. S. China trade tensions word of an all time not an all time high, very high and China's shared grew over. The US China Business Council released a survey recently of multinationals operating in China. They've grown a little bit dimmer and their view of China but fundamentally they're invested and they're not most of them aren't planning to drastically scale back their operations. If you look at headlines around the supply chain question, you know it's easy to get caught up in the political moment. But these are no businesses have to make very capital intensive long term plans and it's very hard to turn that frigate on a dime and a lot of what you're seeing about supply chain shifts and re shoring. If you read those headlines You've. Got Some kind of subjunctive verb in there somewhere where some caveat. A country hoping that something happens or planning on trying to attract businesses back. But that doesn't mean that it's actually happening and the other thing worth keeping in mind of course is that there's a broader shift underway, which is the center of gravity whether that's the number of people whether that's military power financial power political power wealth is shifting east. It's shifting from the West as we conceive it to Asia's we conceive it and China's. A huge part of that story but is going to happen regardless and it may be a question of locating certain parts of supply chain certain nodes in that chain in Vietnam or India instead of China. But that doesn't mean that companies are going to wake up tomorrow and bring that work back to the United States. So we've here in the United States talked a lot about restoring and made in America and bringing back supply chains. We don't hear as much about the conversation inside China about made in China supply chains. And increasingly, we're seeing the US government banning US companies from selling certain technologies to Chinese Tech Companies Howard the Chinese authorities and planners responding to that the conversation in China particularly in Chinese policy making circles is around. The fact as a increasingly technologically advanced power China either gives or should be capable of making its own stuff and inventing its own stuff you know made in China Twenty, twenty-five. Obviously was a that's sort of variously been renamed now because the policies when publicly released freaked out American counterparts so much but the fundamental spirit of maidens China Twenty twenty-five is that there's no reason why we can't nurture national champions at home so that we are not lying on farm enterprise and simultaneous with us, which this is somewhat an aspiration but simultaneous with this is the reality that China has become a much more domestic consumption focused economy. So there's this notion we have. That was true in the early audits when I first went to China that has unfortunately carried over into twenty twenty where we believe that if we were to sort of cut China off they'd be in a world of trouble. It's certainly true that we can hurt individual firms like hallway. It's far less clear that we can cut China off from us or the world and cause fatal damage and there's this sense I think again, this carryover from the early August. But also from the last century that we in the United States have a.

President trump signed an executive order requiring meat processing plants to remain open. He did so via the defense production. Act which trump has employed sporadically throughout the pandemic and says he also wants to include added personal protective equipment for processing plant workers and liability protection employers expect lawyers to battle out almost all of that. Why it matters though is that America's food supply chain is breaking. That's the line used by the CEO of Tyson Foods. The country's second largest processor of chicken pork and beef trump's move an effort to duct. Tape it together but comes after much of the damage has already been done around. Eighty meat and food processing plants throughout the country have already reported cases of Cova. One thousand nine hundred with at least seventeen plant worker deaths which have either shut facilities entirely or at least shut them temporarily for deep cleaning and it's not the sort of industry that can have people work from home or even reasonably employ social distancing at least not while maintaining anything close to the same level of production the impact on consumers. Well that's obvious less meat particularly pork. Where current production capacity is said to be off by at least twenty five percent the impact on meet farmers is devastated as they've got all the normal expenses plus the extra safety expenses and much less revenue and then there's the impact on the animals. It's not going to save their lives instead. Expect them to be euthanized without being consumed the bottom line here is that while. Yeah there have been certain items that are hard to find on grocery store shelves. The country's overall food supply chain has remained robust throughout this crisis but that may be changing which creates a whole new host of health and safety problems. If fifteen seconds we'll go deeper with Laura Riley a business food reporter with the Washington Post the first this. There's more news out there than ever before. But these days it's harder than ever to find it and to know what to trust axios. Am takes effort out of getting smart by synthesizing. The ten stories. That will drive the day and telling you I. They matter subscribe sign up dot axios Dot Com and now back to the pro rata podcast. We're joined now by the Washington Post Laura Riley so Laura. Let's start with President. Trump's Deepa order last night. Does this basically mean? We're all good on the meat supply chain and everything's reopening this morning. I think that remains to be all kinds of labor groups. Union people that are pushing back. My inbox is absolutely filled. This morning with people saying this is an outrage worker. Safety is going to be compromised. This is not critical infrastructure. Obviously this was all triggered by the footage. Tyson had in the New York Times Washington posts. Arkansas Democratic is that on Sunday that got president. Trump's attention John Tyson said basically the food supply chain is breaking a little bit of hyperbole. But it's certainly galvanize the powers that be how much hyperbole was it and and it's one thing to say is breaking right now but we're things to not whether or not to either be some sort of government action or private business action or something to change. Is it hyperbole in two weeks from now just from your perspective? Kind of the way things are heading. He doesn't really carbon question to answer. And I'll tell you why there is a lot of meat in the system right now a lot of more meat in deep freeze than we've had in a long time and a lot of that was slated for food service. A lot of that was slated as international trade and has gotten kind of hung up by code nineteen outbreaks in other parts of the World China. For instance was warned by a lot of our meat. I think committed to you know an absurd amount of of American agricultural products as kind of trade negotiations and the easiest solution for them to buy. Cork airport has been decimated so a lot of meat that we have in the freezer was slated for other things the problem in getting it to retail and getting it to consumers or food banks or whatever is not in formats that people can use these. Are you know primal cuts of beef huge pieces of pork so basically it's frozen in order to you know? Break it into tiny pieces. You need a pretty big chisel. So it's a matter of taking it back out thawing it wittling down and right now. We don't have the meat processing workers to get that job done so it's not a supply of meat per se. It's on the processing side. Can you explain to me a little bit? We've heard repeatedly that meat processing? Plants are not an easy place to social distance. It's not a cubicle office. Obviously can you give me a sense? How densely packed are these facilities in terms of human beings elbow on either side of you? And there's someone three feet across from you know across the conveyor belt is that structurally necessary in other words is that being done for productivity reasons in other words the more people you've got elbow to elbow the more you can produce or is that because you really can't have somebody six feet away and kind of conveyor belt. Try to understand the practicality piece of a traditional food plant. Let's say you're making green beans. You're on line. Yeah you can spread people out. It will still slow that line down a little bit in meat. It's much different because you have a carcass. That is moving down the line at a particular speed. You could slow it down a little bit. But you're making a cut the guy next to US making the next cut etc etc so it really is a almost a kind of a Henry. Ford you know early factory line situation. Where each person's tiny piece builds on towards the next one so it is really really difficult and then you have things where things get hung up. You need the hand Palo ties me and that is a group effort. There's no you know you're all shoulder to shoulder doing stuff like that so it isn't very very difficult thing. Then you break rooms than you have locker rooms where people from different shifts or commingling so it ends up being just a really difficult thing to have people social distance and then you have P P. That doesn't work as effectively as for other kinds of factories. I mean it's really hard to have. You know a mask and gloves all these things on if you have a lot of hand work to do it seems when you see some of these shutdowns and you hear about multiple people significant numbers of people in a single plant getting infected. Is it fair to say that? The meat processing employers at the companies didn't take the spread of infection threat. Seriously enough early enough. I don't think I have enough knowledge about what's going on in their heads to say that but it certainly seems that way to me estimates now that there have been reported cases of nineteen outbreaks in seventy nine plants. Twenty workers dead an estimated sixty five hundred sick. I guess I asked him the sense of certain plants. We're offering workers bonuses to come in right folks who had been concerned for their safety but came in for the money. Certainly and you know we're talking about people who don't have a lot of clout you know. It's a lot of non native English speakers. It's a bowling. Come job and you often don't get paid for what you don't do you. Don't get paid for not showing up. I'm assuming that there was a very strong incentive to keep things moving and some financial incentives to workers to show up even if they weren't feeling so hot climate question for you in some of the pieces you've written you've talked about kind of farm consolidation or meat production and consolidation that we've seen over the past decade plus fewer small family farms more big factory farms given that. Are you expecting to see lots? And lots of farm bankruptcies out of this or not necessarily since a lot of the smaller family farms are now you can call them kind of more bespoke organizations rather than say the Tyson's of the world it's different for different industries okay. So loose poultry is very vertically integrated the Tyson's whoever they own their animal's about forty percent of pork is that way cattle. Ranching is not that way at all so you still have a small family cattle. Ranch that you sell your animals to the big guys if those bottlenecks preclude the purchase of those animals. I think we will see in the beef sector in particular bankruptcies they have a little more wiggle room in terms of the life cycle of those animals. Those animals live a couple of years as opposed to a chicken or the year that a pig will live. Some big can sit on those animals a little bit of time. Whether they're in a confinement feed lot or still on pasture they can reduce the rations. A teeny bit too slow growth a little bit but all their monies tied up in those animals. And if there is a bottleneck at the processing plant and they can't get slaughtered were some bankruptcies for sure law Riley from the Washington Post. Thank you so much for joining us.

It recently filed copyright claims against the maker of certain deep fake music videos posted to Youtube specifically. These videos were software. Aided impersonations using Google Software. Actually which kind of put? Jay Z's voice in cadence over other content like the to be or not to be Soliloquy from Hamlet Youtube originally removed and then reinstated the videos. But that hasn't stopped. The copyright infringement claims why it matters is that some states have already passed laws banning or governing deep fakes when it comes to things like impersonating politician or revenge porn. But we haven't seen it yet when it comes to what the verge terms quote entertainment how this suit from rock nation gets resolved could become precedent setting and finally back to the food. Supply not America's but Belgium's where restaurant closures and other virus related. Changes have resulted in a massive oversupply of potatoes. Specifically seven hundred. Fifty thousand tonnes of potatoes will need to be thrown out if not soon consumed and for context that amount of potatoes could fill the holds of around thirty thousand truck trailers. The solution the Belgian government is asking all of its citizens to eat French fries at least twice per week in an era where everyone is being asked to sacrifice something. This is clearly the most delicious request. And we're done. Thanks for listening to my producers. Tim Chauffeur's Naomi Shaven have a great national Zipper Day.

"That is a significant difference it it's clear that apple has gone to its partners in the supply chain and has instituted a whole bunch of policies in terms of searching um and having security on site searching employees having security on site and um the that's yeah it seems and it seems to be working at least to a certain degree it's hard to do this because there are so many different places where the parts are feeding through in apple supply chain that it it can be a challenge to do this but they you know they they spend a lot of money on the factories they can spend a little bit more money on more security and so that's an interesting interesting to see that that's something that that that's going on here it up is is it include trying to plug the leaks in the in the supply chain and and i mean to be to be clear this is this is something that a lot of the leaks in the supply chain my understanding is have a a couple of sources and one of them is there are there are people who are running their businesses and apple is not there on the client and there is some horsetrading of information that goes on among suppliers and that's one way information gets out and the other is that you've got people who are oftentimes quite poorly paid poorly compensated for their work and they get offered a shocking amount of money given what their wages are to spirit away apart from an apple product line and it's very hard for those people to say no and there are few ways that apple can approach that right apple can approach that by fixing uh you know the the however method they're using to spirit away the the the the case uh they could also make it may be a little less worth it by paying the better and hopefully they're doing both of those things.
