And every good we teach their performance, that mostly live band kind of people. The platform will work with this. And very good. I told you. Yeah, but what do you think is Nigerians reception today? Few Nigerians really owned us tons of data. Lack of discovery. Although, I like all in about them. They are waiting to be discovered, discovered. It's not like they are self promoted to ten years. Once you listen to the kids, you like that and you listen to automatically. You have gained the final result. Because they are different. And then they are waiting for you to discover it because implore people to have a change of mind towards the type of music they listen to. Try all that. Never really exactly. But I think now I'm more of a very, I think people would know by now. I said you get to know me as a cucumber. So I'm a very open minded person. So I'm open to listening to their music, basically. Yeah, all right. I will stop living on the Iraq. Yeah, so rounding off the episode for TB, because I feel we've been talking a lot. Yeah. And that's been very, very interesting. Do you have any tips for us on our list? Yeah, I should tell you, I should, because it's necessary for me to tell you to try new things, and just try to see what other people see in the kind of music they listen to. I think if you can even ask, why do you like this music and all of that? You should know the reason why some people like the type of music they like. You now find out that so people don't even know why they like the kind of music they like. Some of those things because our Friends are listening to it. Because it's raining, exactly. There is something that is going on on the Internet in the age of screenshots. So let's say our artists release this song.

The songs you actually vibe with. You don't have time to screenshot them because by the time you want to screenshot, it has ended. I can not possibly. And now my screenshot will go back. Song I already knew the lyrics I'll just go copy lyrics by the time I get to that point I just screenshot posts and that's just it. So I still have time to screenshot the looks. And don't be pieced at all that people's choice of music. I don't know if person does. Thank you. If you just mentioned and whisk it alone, that's enough.

"This like the slinging and I don't know how it looked really wacky and cool, but if he told me he was like the boss from the video game rage, I would have been like, yeah, that adds up. And now Tom Brady was vague about what's next for him. Look, I don't know why Tom Brady didn't just come out and say, I'll see you next year. I'm coming back. I don't know why. But I really can't imagine that Tom Brady's going to retire after this year. Now, he's 44 years old, but he literally led the NFL in every passing category. And maybe, you know, he wants to end on top. That's possible, I guess, but I would be surprised if Tom Brady's desire to do well and win more and keep playing with suddenly gone. I mean, and I think part of why he didn't say anything now is because it doesn't want to say something that he's locked into and put himself into a corner, but look, come February when he's watching his Super Bowl and watching someone else win. And in his head I'll probably tell himself someone else is winning my Super Bowl. That's what he's gonna tell himself because that's what you have to tell yourself. And I mean, there's no way. I remember when Brett Favre retired and Chris Louis flew down to Mississippi to go get him and bring him back. The Vikings punter went and got Bret far to bring him back to football. Brett fav didn't work out, but there's going to be a moment like that where if Tom Brady, I'm sure he's thinking about retiring. I have no doubt. Family and this and that, but you're telling me that come April, Tom Brad is not going to be sitting at home going like, bro, I need that. I need to win. I need to play some more football. He's not gonna imagine a world where Tom Brady retires. I don't know how we would get himself out of Tampa Bay, like I don't know. I don't think he's gonna leave. I don't know what other team would give like, maybe he could go to the colts. They're prepared to win, but I don't know that he could go to another team that would be more set up to win the Tampa anyway. So who knows, but it is interesting that Tom Brady didn't come out and just say like, yeah, I'm coming back. Clearly, there's something there, but you know he's also probably just waiting for another day to figure his stuff out. Again, why say something you're painting yourself into a corner on. But take everything I say with the greatest song I'm a massive Tom Brady fan. And I personally can not imagine him retiring right now. I will say, I love that Tom Brady is in Tampa because the TB abbreviation and my notes has a double meaning. I'll be like, you know, TB touchdown. TB gets a first down and that means both Tom Brady and Tampa Bay. That's kind of fun, but we will see what is next for Tom Brady and Tampa Bay in the coming months. But I would be personally very, very shocked. If Tom Brady did retire.

Tina but we've all heard that muscle weighs more than fat so we may not lose weight right with weight training. Is this true well once again. It's all about body composition so when we talk about weight loss versus fat loss. You know. I don't know anybody that wants to lose their muscle and yes muscle does weigh more than fat. And i've always just explained it like this muscles like a a marble it's heavier than a and fast like a cotton ball cutting both very light and fluffy and doesn't way match right but it takes up more space that i mean muscles like marble it's smaller and takes up less space but ways a lot more than that cotton ball so when you have more muscle mass a lotta times especially with female for whatever reason when they start lifting. Wait a lot of times. They don't lose any weight after a few weeks or they gained a few pounds right off the bat. And i always tell them you gotta add the muscle before you can really start seeing the fat come down. You know you got a little bit of muscle and it's okay. You might me a few pounds. You also get a lot of fluid From working out you got your cells water and and get lots of build up and so. It's possible that you could gain a little weight. Initially but the long term result the end result is to increase muscle mass in re could bring down the body fat like we just talked about in this study. We know now that not only is it. Because of the metabolical changes The changes in your metabolic. Basal metabolic rate elevates calories. You burn all day long. It's also at a cellular level where we got that cellular press talk. So so yeah. It's possible initially the you might not see way laws that you're gonna see inches come off and that's why it's important to focus more on you know how you look in the mirror. Hide your clothes. Are you seeing a change. Can you look at yourself there. Well my my summit looks like.

What how much off versus that and and getting the fat down. So it's kinda like you see might see a girl. I mean. people do sometimes say well. How much do you weigh. Like a hundred hundred and five.

A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia
"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in
UFC Fight Night: Derrick Lewis demolishes Curtis Blaydes
"Let's go right into this thing. Let us discuss the heavyweight division in the ufc because it was on full display last week. It'll be on display this weekend as well and next month with the title on the line but let's focus on ufc vegas nineteen and derek lewis's incredible ferocious and absolutely vicious knockout of curtis blades. In the main event after a really strong opening round from curtis blades lewis delivers one of the nastiest knockout. You will ever see in the second round coming through with the biggest main event upset in the. Us's michael bisbee became. The ufc middleweight champion. A you have c. One ninety nine knocking out. Luke rocco network going to begin with you kind sir. Nice and easy your reaction to a massive win for derek lewis less than a week ago surprise. Surprise i guess is where i would start out. I picked curtis blades. I thought he would be able to at least take down. Derek lewis enough to win the fight and lo and behold. He didn't take him down at all. So that was probably actually the biggest surprise about the fight What wasn't surprising. That derek lewis after being down in the first round after losing that second round blades was doing really well on the feet. And then derek lewis just did what they're glues does. Big are uppercut. Is the fight so relatively shocking shocking result in the sense that derek one. I was fairly confident that blades. Who get it done. But not so not so surprising that derek lewis got another highlight reel nocco assay. We kind of got your instant reaction after the fight on saturday on the post by now you've talked about on the side but now they've had some time to let it all sink in and spoken about it on on different platforms. How big was this win. For derek lewis in the in the grand scheme of things that heavyweight. I mean anytime you win in the top five especially when the heavyweight title is only is within less than a month of your big victory. It's a big thing. I just think. Derek lewis is one of those fighters that he said it himself like the title is great but he's fighting for that paycheck. You got the bonus. You got bulbs paychecks. He's back taxes. Which is obviously still reeling from the massive blizzard. So i'm sure he's going to do great things with that. We saw what he did when the hurricane happened. Driving around saving people so For a normal fighter getting this big win on a big platform so close to not just the title fight probably another a contender fight with jazzy. No rose straight and cyril gone. They're going to be like. Oh this is great for my career. I'm looking at it from the perspective of derek. Lewis wear awesome. I got both of my paychecks and fifty thousand dollars more so yeah massive night for the black beast again. Prize fighters derek lewis through to be one of the most reliable prize fighters on the ufc roster. So yeah ten attempt forms across the board from the heavyweight contender to sort of build upon that jose. Is it time to look at derek. Lewis is not just a fun prizefighter but a serious threat to the title. It's not like he wasn't before but people always view. Derek is this you know fun. Follow on social media this hilarious guy this quote machine who can land knock on at any point of a fight as watch the sport at all outside of his fight weeks doesn't really care about titles but it seems like he's putting together now i know he's added some pieces to his team. You saw lauren. Murphy's husband joe in his corner who's excellent jujitsu coach in practitioner. His own right time to stop looking. Derek lewis as the funny guy with the with the best social media. Game outside of darren taylor. Moore is a legit threat to st bay francis and gado john jones. Whoever is in this division. I would say derek lewis has already the best twitter follow third. Darren tools jason lewis at this point. Because derek lewis is winning fighting and being funny darren till is only doing one of those things. So i i would say derek lows. Of course you have been taken seriously if he touches your jaw you have to take him seriously because you're probably not going to remember when after the referee pulls him off of you so i don't know the answer to this because we haven't seen we don't know we don't know that's like saying oh francis in who is putting together all of these this team to make him a complete fire. All of his fights are like less than two minutes long. So we just don't know for all we know. Derek lewis is the best gogo planet practitioner. It all of the ufc. We're just never going to see it because at the second touches you you die. So if you fight someone like steep bay That is obviously a master game. Planner i think that's better. That's that'll be a better gauge of derek. lewis skills. because we've seen him fight dan mccormick. Who is the definition of a complete mixed martial arts and that wasn't a great night for derek lewis. Yes he took that on like Real short notice to only a month after he got that beatdown he did win. Let's not forget volkov. Put it on their clothes until again. Derek lewis touched his jaw and killed a man on live television. So yeah i don't know. Tb all say. I know that's a cop out. But i don't think anyone knows i think everyone will agree with.

And it's a you can't see me but quotation marks raynham order selection who comes in who comes out at the last person standing essentially as your new champion. The one thing. I don't understand why we're in. It is because the bill has not been that good relationship but remember the royal rumble was just last week. Edge charles loved. It made me feel good. Warranting lee inside. I definitely do not understand the community. Because god knows they're pissy pants all the time but anyway they announced the elimination chamber for the raw segment..

A Telsa Model S Refresh?
"You've been telling me about why. I think there's going to be a model as an ex refresh. Yeah and there was like it was really hard to test drive them. There were like upping the sales out of everything they were. You couldn't see them in showrooms anymore night. This big list of rumors as to why we thought it might happen and then like an hour ago. It just all unveiled so well. So there's a there's a lead up to it the the model s. design is it's like ten plus years old at this point like fundamentally. The design of the car is unchanged since the beginning rate. So there's one small outside refresh her where the front grill nose cone. that was an exterior. Like look change. Is that what you call a nosecone nosecone. Yeah i've always just called at the grill. But obviously it's not. It isn't enact plastic nosecone two more metal okay but The autopilot versions changed. But really fundamentally the inside has always been that vertical screen and it's always been the same doors. Same door handles same shape so they've never really changed the model s. in car years. That's a long time let alone tech years that's forever. Yeah so. The rumors have been building for a long time. And we kind of were like. I think that this earnings call on wednesday were according to one night. Just say you know yeah have plans to possibly make video about all this. But we're recording on wednesday night and during the earnings call. They update the site. They give the over all the stuff and dropped a new model lesson ex and yet it's something is there's a lot to it. I guess we'll just. I'm just going to go down the list. This obviously isn't a video podcast yet. But i do have a lot to say about the aesthetics and the things that they've changed right. Yeah maybe i'll use this template as like a guide for the video. What i make it. We'll see i almost debated telling you throw camera up here and just take the clips out and turn it into the youtube video also. Yeah so right off. The bat outside changes are pretty small. They turned all the chrome black kind of like they did with model three and model. I every single car company do that. Please stop with the chrome. I think toyota has been doing it. A bunch with just maybe not even like their door handles and window trim but they've been doing it with their emblems and like the wording and names on the back and they looked so good on every single caller romo terrible. Please stop. Yeah feel old. Basically starting to feel a little bit outdated so it's gone from the car. I think maybe just the logo the last chrome piece. but that's that's pretty sweet and then There's a little bit of a different shape up front a little bit of a more simple grill at the bottom. For the front splitter and different fog i think i read people were saying it looks like the air like in vents are a little bigger probably to help battery cooling yup the better battery performance and i think that leads us beautifully into the new specs before i talk about the interior. So it's just going to be three models model s. and i'm going to focus on model s even a model x. Got this refresh it. Basically doesn't exist tesla like they still make it kind of because they have to nightmare. Yeah there's not a lot of attention around the x this is about the s. I'm just talking about this. Yeah i'm just trying to think of. Who's the i feel like the x. Still gets a lot like in the blogger community. A couple david dobric jake paul logo on it. There's jailers very her. Jalen smith jr jada jason. What's his son's name. Now you've got me thinking. Smith i don jaden has one. There's some there's small market for the ex. Yeah but the model s. is where it's at so there's really just three versions now. And by the way. I'm gonna say overarching for this. Whole thing is simplicity. Dustless manufacturing simplifying line vehicles. So there's three there's a long range model s a plaid model s and a plaid plus model s. so model s long range has four hundred twelve mile range zero to sixteen three point one seconds dual motors and it's. It's a pretty standard. Look that's like what probably most people getting a model less would get then. The performance version is your plaid model s. which goes directly to triple motors. It drops a little bit range three hundred ninety miles but it goes two hundred mile an hour. Top speed and zero to sixty in one point nine nine seconds. I'm gonna say that one more time just in case you didn't hear it this. Several thousand pound four door family car. Hatchback does zero to sixty in one point. Nine nine seconds like you need to like take a an advanced driver's test in order to get something that can go under two seconds to pilot this thing. Yeah yeah every time. I think about like performance cars on the street. I'm like i icy regular people driving cars poorly all the time and i just get a little bit worried about giving them that much power. There's a whole youtube rabbit hole of great like mustang arm beats of people just like wrecking it into the median pulling out yet i mean i guess the good thing is this is all wheel. Drive is the safest car on the world. This is a car that's tries really hard not to crash itself but yeah lot power here but just so you know that's starting at one hundred twelve thousand nine ninety which has ten thousand more than the previous model and then plaid plus is eleven hundred horsepower versus that one thousand twenty of plaid zero to sixty. There are a little more vague with this under one point nine nine seconds. So it'll be faster. We don't know how much faster it's still trip promoters. And it'll do the quarter mile in less than nine seconds which would make it. The quickest zero to sixty and the quickest quarter-mile acceleration in any production car. Ever and again. this is not yet the roadster. This is just a speck. Yeah but the most interesting spec to me of plaid plus is it still triple motor. There's new battery info but it goes five hundred twenty plus miles on a charge. So what was the long range again. Four sixty long-range was four. Twelve for twelve plaid was down to three ninety and then plaid plus was five twenty so this leads me to believe that. Plaid plus is a different battery technology. Do you think it's the one. Because that's sounds around the specs of the roadster was supposed to have right exactly roadsters. Got us six twenty plus quoted mile range and on top of that. This is the one other thing that's really interesting. I'll just touch on the x for a second. I don't think this is happening the x. Because if you go to the model x. site you can see you have the long range version which has a three hundred sixty mile range and the plaid version which has a three hundred forty mile range. So there's no plaid. Plus so whatever's happening with plaid. Plus is i guess this ultra high end security premium powertrain and battery system that only the high end model s. And i guess eventually roadster star gonna get it. Sounds like it's just a roadster with a model spotty it's a four door roadster four door to door. Yeah no it's it's a it's a crazy it's crazy car i. I'm prefacing all this with like. I don't need it. I'm not gonna get it. I'm gonna wait till the roadster but also this is absolutely insane. What they've done now really. The the most important part is the inside of the car that they've updated so like i said simplicity's sake finally switched to the horizontal touchscreen inside which i think looks pretty good. It's like a little more well integrated with the car doesn't stick out as much as three. Yeah i think what i like. I like that. But i liked that. They kept the screen in front of you. Like a regular odometer like they have in the model s. already because like three and y. I'm fine with that screen. There i only thing is. It's a little weird that you have to look over seer odometer but the fact that you have a better spot there and you still have your regular like driving odometer with a high acid and speaking of that steering wheel hobo this is this is the interesting went and i think this is where a lot of people are polarized because this interior looks very similar minus steering wheel if you look on their site. It's a yoke style steering wheel and it's almost kinda squared off. So it's like the bottom half of a square steering wheel and then there's a bunch of buttons on the steering wheel itself and there are no blinker stocks. No windshield wiper stocks. Nothing behind the wheel. No paddles no nothing yeah. Let's paint a picture here though. Because i've never heard the term yoke style and i only understand it because i saw the picture right before so picture fighter jet handles like that. Yoke style top trying to top office doing rectangle and doesn't have a top part. So yeah i'm just like i was just trying to think about using it. In general it seems so cool for like straight line in like minor turns on a highway but exactly turning around in a parking lot or like a tight driveway or something seems miserable on it. Yeah i this is one of those things where i'm imagining it and i'm imagining it really poorly and i think i'm just going to have to try it because as of right now i don't even think this is legal to ship yet. I think you technically have to have enclosed steering wheel and then people earliest you have to ship it with one and the people can modify it later. I think that's technically the rule here in the us. I don't know the rules internationally. But i've never seen a car actually ship with a yoke steering wheel before so again. This is all tb will see it happens. But i think i'm going to have to give it a shot because it's really weird.
US job market weakens in December, fuelling hopes of more stimulus
"With political implications. That are as we speak. Still tb but with implications for this economy that you can kind of see the outlines of even now here to make sense of it. All our k- davidson. She is from the wall street journal neil. Richardson is the chief. economist ed. Adp hey you too. Neil let me start with a quick pass at this morning's jobs numbers because it is jobs day friday at the end of this kind of amazing week. We lost one hundred and forty thousand jobs last month. My question to you is more of a statement. Actually and it goes like this. Uh oh i guess. I l. indeed but it's not totally unexpected. We knew that the code cases were rising. They were rising december with that. Bryce states and municipalities have had to roll back or tighten restrictions on social gathering that has a direct effect on the job market so this trend of slowing the momentum in jobs recovered each month as cova cases rise continued in december. The hope is that when we have a population that is inoculated. Maybe later this year second half of the year. We'll see those job gains. Come back in the meantime it's still going to be a pretty rough winter For those people who are out of work and also cleared. I was touching with a friend of mine this morning. Who works in finance and he said you know. I think by fall or winter of this year which is to say. Twenty twenty one. We're gonna be rolling right along. And i texted him back and i said look man. We are as far from winter this coming year as we are from the beginning of this thing. Think about all the damage that can That is still yet to come in this economy. What do you think. yeah. I mean. I think that's what Democratic policymakers economists are warning about. And when you hear folks say it's important to have another big economic relief package for example which is something we've been hearing a lot about even though we just had this big nine hundred billion dollar. One Economists say it's important to try to get back to where we were before march as quickly as possible in other words. The longer this is drawn out the Take the harder it is to to come back. The deeper the hole the harder it is to get out of it So right it would be. It would be amazing if vaccines were rolled out quickly which may be an early december. We were all so excited. We thought they would be in our seeing. Gee it's not. It's not so easy. And and people are maybe a little more pessimistic. So that just means it's gonna take longer for people to be back in full force at restaurants or movie theaters or on cruise ships or airplanes and And it might. It might feel like a longtime time before at that place. So nila lemme ask you now about the news of tuesday. The democrats win georgia. They now control the senate and there had been much speculation that they were going to be able to do something more in relief. Maybe even those two thousand dollar checks the president trump and and others had been calling for and then joe manchin a democrat or west. Virginia came out today and said. I'm not sure i'm on board for two thousand dollars and everybody kind of realized that it's a much thinner majority than maybe the actual numbers would imply i think on this front. I make two points at first of all i. I firmly believe that the economy is going to lead politics. Some this issue if we continue to see job losses like we saw in december There may not be a lot of wiggle room of how the government responds. I if they want to make sure that the economy can pull through this. Secondly i think what would it. Also indicates is yes there is the may be some some dissension even along party lines. And so what it means. Is that big reforms which typically occur when there is a single party leadership might be delayed even further in this presidency. Because it's covid right. Now that's taking charge of covid. That has a seat at the table. And so that's going to have to play out a before we can get to those bigger reforms that i'm sure by the would like to tackle his term. That's a really good line. The economy is gonna lead policy Speaking of economic policy. Kate president-elect biden came out in a statement today or in a in a speech to reporters talking about a bunch of economic stuff. He said we should be investing in deficit spending which is remarkable thing for a politician to say out loud. It's a huge Reversal or shift if you will from when president obama came in Last financial crisis democrats were were leaning into this idea that republicans were pushing that in. I think continue to push that. We need to be worried about about deficits right. I mean we obviously want to support the economy and In support people and households. But we can't go too far. And i think that there's been it. There's been a big shift among Economists and economic thinking on this in ten or twelve years since then and that's look at interest rates. They are so low right now. In biden made this point that when interest rates historically low and the federal reserve you know they've got rates as low as they can go or as low as they are willing to go. They said they aren't gonna do negative rates They could do more bond buying but there's not a lot they can do Then you should be spending more even if that is deficit spending And that's the argument that we heard The president-elect today and it's interesting because we know that his economic team the advisors. He's been turning to for advice last year. They were making that same argument. They're saying look at the cost of finance. This debt is so low it it. It makes sense to invest now because those investments will pay off over the long term. If if they boost growth roy All right i'm gonna try to squeeze last one in and i'm going to try to get both here in about thirty seconds apiece if you could we've i want. You can't leave the segment today without the politics of this economy coming up and we talk a lot about uncertainty in this economy and what that has meant the last four years. I wonder neela what you think about instability in the politics of this economy because that seems to me to be where we are i think the biggest danger as we look at the economic fragility of that we're grappling with in the winter months. Is that we keep. We take our eye off the ball of the economy and the people who've been hit hardest in the economy. It's easy to give way to the politics of the moment. That still about ten million americans who were working in february who are not working now and we have rental moratoriums that actually end in january and so the danger is that we give way to the politics. We stop thinking about the economy. So meyer urgency on this. Friday is to remember. It's about the economy right now. And the health infrastructure that is necessary for to keep the economic recovery going to quickly uncertainty verses instability. Well i just. I think so much is going to depend on. What happens after january twentieth. And whether you still have president trump out there sort of riling rolling up his base And how the the congress and how republicans interact with the with the incoming administration the incoming president and we have reason to think that things might go okay mitch. Mcconnell has a longstanding relationship with joe biden and they've worked together for for many many years but to to as point earlier. I think that what happens with the economy is going to be driving these these discussions. Hopefully hopefully if things get worse or things stay. Stay as they are. They'll they'll come together though overcome These issues and get something done if the economy is it who davidson at the wall. Street journal
How To Make Your 2021 Different From Your 2020
"Let's start with where this practice came from. Because i wanna give credit where credit is due john. Maxwell wrote about this. I want to say. John wrote about this in fifteen invaluable laws of growth. If you have never read that book. I want to ask you to put that. On your your. Tb are pile. That's your to be read pile. I want to ask you to put that in your tr pile immediately. Fifteen invaluable laws of growth by john maxwell is the og personal development book. It's like the gateway drug people read that book and then it makes them go. Oh my gosh. What else should i read. What else should i bring into my life. What podcast should i listen to. That's really a book that gets a lot of people excited about elevating and i'm super freaking blast to have john as a real life mentor and friend but honestly even before he was my life mentor. He was my like author mentor. I followed his work and learn lessons from him long before i ever met him in real life so in that book is when he talks about this idea of doing a calendar audit and there's so much incredible information in that work but for some reason in that book. That was like the thing that really stuck with me. If you don't know this about me. I am always looking for ways to become better. I believe that one of the things. I'm here on this earth to do is figure out a better way to do my life. Like how can. I be a better leader. How could it be a better podcast host house. How can be better with my health. How can it be better as apparent. Like i always want to improve i. I am such a nerd for learning tactics and skills. That will help me to have a better life. And when i saw this idea in his book i was like gosh. I really want to try and i did. This was years ago when i did it for the first time. And it was so freaking powerful. You guys. I'm going to walk you through how i do it but i just want to tell you. My first experience of doing a calendar audit the first time that i did a calendar audit. I really fell in love with the practice. Because i'm gonna be honest. It was the first time that i really did a post mortem on my life. Now if you're not familiar with the idea of a post mortem this is something that we do in business all the time if we have a big project or we have something that we've launched sure we spend a bunch of money on or recreated something for you guys in the community. We meet up as a team afterwards and we do. What's called a post mortem which is like okay. We got through this big thing that we invested time and money and energy into. Let's talk about what was great. And let's talk about what we could improve for next time and let's talk about what straight up was wrong. I had done that in business a million times. It never occurred to me to do it for my life. And when i did it for my life i found frankly the very first time i did it. I was super disappointed. I was super disappointed with myself. Because i realized how much time i was wasting on the wrong things. If you like okay. Are you guys familiar with the twenty principal or prado's principle. If you're not familiar look it up. There's a billion books on this topic. I'll just give you a quick. Like fifty thousand foot view at the idea of the eighty twenty principle eighty twenty. Is this law of like life and business and results and success. That shows again and again and again that twenty percent of your effort produces eighty percent of your results. Twenty percent of your customers equate to eighty percent of your revenue. Twenty percent of the things that you do for your health equal eighty percent of the results that you see. I'm not perfectly explaining this idea but basically the gist is. You're spending all of this time and energy on all of these things when really only twenty percent of the stuff you're doing is actually giving you results. If you can focus in tighter and tighter on the things that are just your twenty percent. And you just focused on those imagine the exponential growth. You would see in your life.
Adam Eli: How Social Media Is Changing Queer Activism
"I'm excited talk to you. Because i am so fascinated by this rise of instagram activism. And i don't mean that in a pejorative way but it does complicate or change. How i think about what activism is or isn't so i wonder if you can start off by talking about how you personally define as and how that definition has changed with social media so onto the first part i i view activism as finding an issue within society and either drawing attention to that issue or providing a creative solution and ivy social media as one of the tools to do that so i think that i ask that because i used to have this more traditional view of activism as an example that people act. Up community organizers as activists planning attending in towards a specific goal as. You said. It's harder for me now. To tell like who are the activists who are like on the ground doing that work compared to just you know posting infographics as an example on instagram. No definitely and that's why. I think the word community organiser is really helpful because community organizer is a lot of the work i think activism is a really really big term and i think that that's good. I think it has an umbrella term. It's a very very inclusive term. But if you wanna talk about that traditional type where your boots on the ground bringing people together concrete direct action as they call. I think the word community organizers can be really helpful and if you think about what act up does activated so many things but one of the things they did was they dispersed information and try to explain it to the world which is why act up was always active as always always known. For being extremely media savvy they would bring camcorders camcorders like handheld recorders to hospitals and they will bring protests and they would make videos and send them to news companies and send them to their parents and send them while the world to show them. What the front lines of the aids crisis was so. Could you imagine what it would have been able to do with instagram. Live own right because this is just one other tool and had existed back then like act up taken advantage of it so hard exactly and so another big thing that an north of who. I think you've had on your podcast right. Yes she always talks about speaking through the media and one of the things that an who had a background in television journalism taught act up. How did you genius smoothest. She said you always need to get a sound by each gave. Like a quick thing that they can use ten to fifteen seconds that they can use for tb spot. Because that's all they're gonna put they're not gonna put like full linked interview with a street activists. Let's the exact same idea as a tweet. It's like a small easily digestible piece of information. That is catchy. And get your point across. And so i think social media is simply a tool that contemporary activists are using that build on the tradition of other activists. I'm so glad you brought up northrop for those who don't know she's a legendary activist. Who was a part of act up and queer march many things. When i interviewed her she talked about how. The job of the activist is not to be liked. It has to accomplish something specific about a specific issue to advance progress. And i was trying to figure out how to think about as i call the instagram activism. Because i see that operating directly against social media. I think that we want to be liked. And for the first time ever we can quantify those likes with instagram. Likes those two things. Don't go together for me. it's interesting. I also think it's maybe a little bit more nuanced when you're talking about being liked it's about being liked by whom actor meant push the status quo. They're meant to push forward for progress. And i think that they're always using social media to say things that will make you very very unpopular indeed by saying things that make you unpopular. Does that equal to does that. Create like less social engagement. Then that's a great question and sometimes yes sometimes. No we know that having a take that is not always the mainstream take in having a take. That's controversial nothing brings more engagement than controversial post like on twitter. Like nothing is more engagement than like when you have a fight or if you had beef with someone or if you're saying something that's unpopular that makes total sense it's the tweets that are in all caps that get the most retweets exactly and like i recently posted something. That was not died. Got a lot of negative feedback and got two types of negative feedback. That got you know. The fact that i would say was just you know pretty openly anti semitic i posted something about antisemitism on the right and people in the jewish. You're saying that. I only post by anti semitism on the right and i don't push that antisemitism on the left so that was one aspect of the controversy if we want to call it that or the non likeability and the other half is just sort of playing old antisemitism and that post which was not likeable is one was buoyed by most engaged during the election week because it had so many people young at each other on it. I think i've been so interested with social media activism because we see like a separation between words and actions so an organization can post black. Lives matter but you know. How do they treat their staff. Whose black do they have any staff. It's black or any leadership roles and research like that dichotomy and so that also crosses over to you know people in our own community just like private citizens who will postseason social media but like how are they operating in there like day to day lives. I think that it just makes me wonder like i. I say this are people like posting about on social media but thanks stopping there as the only thing that they're doing i mean. I think that there's no denying that that is partially what happens. But also if we're gonna have a nuance palmer reservation about social media and activism than it's important off about. I think there's one. There's activists or community organizers or both using social media as will to spread information and to further advance their causes and then there are also people that are just posting about social justice online profiles. And i think that those are two different things so when organizer hosts and get a bunch of other people to post about there in real life protest. That's very different than a brand or corporation hosting reposting a graphic or an ideology.
FDA panel meeting could lead to Pfizer vaccine emergency use OK
"By the end of the day then on friday and sunday another committee. This time from the cdc will meet to officially determine who gets the first doses fingers crossed that they choose me. Because i sent them my resume. I'm good candidate. Yeah we reviewed all the qualifications ahead of time and they were spotless. As we've been saying this is all happening at very critical time. Just yesterday the united states hit another single day record for coronavirus deaths. It is very very bleak out there regarding the pfizer vaccine. There was some news yesterday about potential issues. Yeah that's right so in the uk there now. Recommending that people prone to severe reactions shouldn't get the vaccine for now. The regulators are investigating a couple instances of allergic reactions and people who got the vaccine on tuesday and there hasn't been a ton of information on exactly what kinds of allergic reactions may be red flags. So tb there but canada approved the visor vaccine yesterday. So if there's more information on the safety of it and people with allergies forthcoming in a conversation with sanjay gupta on cnn. Yesterday dr fauci that this complication may affect a large amount of people. It went on to say quote. If i were a person that had an underlying allergic tendency. I might want to be prepared. That i might get a reaction and therefore be ready to treat it. So i guess. Have some benadryl or your epi pen on deck. That's where we're at but to end on a hopeful note found. She did say that the other vaccines may be able to account for this rarest sort of side effect that is great to hear and then on that note. What is the latest on other vaccines all right next week. The moderna vaccine will undergo the same fda review process as the pfizer vaccine and the united arab emirates approved vaccine out of china. Yesterday that vaccine is said to be eighty six percent effective and could be much more affordable route for smaller countries versus one shipped out from america. The details around the vaccine beyond that are kind of murky. Though chinese officials and a farm the state owned maker of the vaccine or silent yesterday. Don't want heard anything from them. In science noted that the announcement was lacking data and other critical details

Fed Up With Facebook and Twitter, Some Conservatives Turn to Parler
"In recent months. In years we've seen mainstream social media. Companies like facebook and twitter. Step up their efforts to moderate content on their platforms in some prominent conservatives have said many of those measures unfairly target them and censor their viewpoints on the internet. They've increasingly responded by telling their followers to join them. On another social media platform it's called parlor and its billing itself. As a sort of libertarian. Alternative to twitter or puerto jeff horwitz has been looking into parlor and he joins me now to talk more about it. Jeff things being here certainly alright so for the folks who have been leaving book twitter. Can you just remind us what are their concerns with those platforms. Don't like content moderation very much or at least the way that the platforms are doing it. We should say and this kind of all boiled over the with the election the idea that the platforms would be one fact checking claims about voter fraud. That didn't really pan out but it'd be fact checking them at all and to be labeling the president's own speech and in some cases even restricting the spread of it really got people riled up and so many of them have been turning to parlor instead. It's sort of billing itself as this libertarian version of twitter but what exactly does parlor differently. That sort of appeals to these groups so the first thing it does is it does not moderate content except in very rare circumstances. The team does volunteers right now. So you know whether it even does it under. Those circumstances is kind of tb. Rules are no threatening to kill people and no committing illegal acts by means of the platform. Those two things are out aside from that. You wanna share nude sell fees by all means you want to use ethnic slurs. Go right ahead and this is intentional. Design the back of the hat form. It was launched with the expectation that there would be sort of this radical liberty approach and that even hateful speech would be tolerated and the thing that is sort of really different as well is that the platform doesn't push content at all so facebook and twitter and youtube. They all operate by recommending the best content when we think about things going viral it's usually because the platforms recognized that users responding in such a way that it was gonna meant the content was going to have great interest and then pushed it out to a whole bunch of people. This plant doesn't do that at all so you follow you. Follow you see their posts in reverse chronological order. And that's that so if the platform doesn't determine what people see what is doing that so on parlor. The interesting thing is that they've basically left all of this up to users. It is a user's responsibility to label sensitive about would be pornographic or extremely violent or hate-filled content if they post it and it is also used responsibility to use filters to determine whether they're going to see that so instead of trying to make sure that you know bad stuff doesn't go around the platform which is what the mainstream platforms tend to do what parlour is trying to do is making it so that you don't have to see it if you don't wish to and you giving users more control on that level so again it's just based on putting decisions that have typically been done on the platform level pushing it down to the user level and you mentioned the backers of parliament. Who's behind this. So rebecca mercer is the funder that got it off the ground. I mean everyone involved. Is i think has some very solid libertarian credentials executives with sort of ayn rand ian objectivism credentials or you know sort of bitcoin. Devotees rebecca mercer is the sign of robert mercer. Who is extremely wealthy hedge fund manager. Who has both funded. A whole bunch of very libertarian slash right meaning causes and also was involved with the cambridge analytica situation back in two thousand sixteen so he was funded dot company. Which was we all know. Got into a great deal of mass. Based on their somewhat dodgy business practices and as well obtaining of facebook data in ways that were blessed than orthodox. Got an end. Just how popular is this. Gambit of their how popular is parlor so parlour has gone from around four and a half million users before the election to well over ten men had been around for over two years at this point so they were really actually very slam trying to keep up with the traffic and it certainly didn't hurt that. You had some very high profile folks. Dan bongino the facebooks. Most popular radio hosts very right leaning. Talk show type actually. Owns a stake in the thing and has been pumping this on facebook as well based on the idea that people are irritated about facebook. Showdown groups and You know the stop. The steel effort that they sort of crackdown on and so it's kind of been on the platform itself. It's been getting pushed pretty hard. And that's been a big part of their growth. And i guess the question is does this platform present a competitive threat to the mainstream social media companies. Like could it actually compete with facebook and twitter too early to say. I think that there is a lot of skepticism. I mean people always say they don't want you know anyone else telling them what to thank telling them what to read or recommending content or censoring that they say that however the the history of the mainstream platforms basically was of people who had roughly those ideas themselves who were very much first amendment devotees even though they ran private platforms in the first amendment. Doesn't really apply in the full sense. They really wanted to keep it open for everybody and the problem is is that life gets in the way a and really vile stuff makes other users feel uncomfortable crimes get committed. There's kind of a reason why these platforms have cracked down over time. So i think it's sort of to be determined whether people who are leaving facebook and twitter because of their concerns that conservative viewpoints aren't going to be are being treated fairly are going to like being on a platform where like nude sell. Fees are totally cool. Are a wall street journal. Reporter jeff horowitz. Things reporting thank you.
HomePod Mini Begins Arriving to Customers
Why a dedicated Zoom device makes sense
"You'll recall that earlier this week I had a lot of fun with that new Microsoft Eighty, five inch dedicated device for teams meetings. It's only twenty two thousand dollars little much for my budget I. Don't know about you but it's been a week for dedicated video meeting devices after that Microsoft announcement though I gotTa love, Amazon's answer which came later in the week, a dedicated ten inch unit for two hundred, fifty dollars the echo show ten, which lets you go through Alexa to connect to zoom skype or Alexa to Alexa direct calls two hundred and fifty dollars. Twenty two, thousand dollars I think I'll take the cheaper one Alex, thank you. I think these dedicated devices when they're priced, right make a lot of sense i. mean think of the kids were stuck at home taking school on their laptops. Now, they could have one more unit just displaying the teacher and lessons which would give their hands free for schoolwork and no taking on the laptop make sense for those of you who are taking meetings all day. The same issue applies isn't it hard to take notes when your laptop screen is filled with Speaker video windows. Plus this way you wouldn't have to worry Webcam placement after all his best to be at eye level which most people ignore and not have the Webcam looking up your Chin that requires putting the laptop atop of a bunch of books which gives you a better look, but it makes it really hard to type. So the savvy speaker or student would have to constantly move the books around that dedicated service on the desk would solve the issue living atop the. Books that could just stay there and not have to be moved around. So Amazon has the echo show ten, which will be out later this year it'll let you connect the Webcam to the TV via the hundred and twenty dollar fired TB Cube device. So so maybe it won't be watching eighty five inches how about fifty or sixty sounds pretty good p particularly when you consider that you can buy a good fifty inch these days for about three hundred dollars. Now, the Amazon solutions won't be available until later this year. But if you have a facebook portal video chat device, you can use the dedicated unit now to connect to zoom because the update started rolling out today. The portal started one, hundred, twenty, nine dollars, and they're available in three sizes at eight, inch, ten inch or fifteen point, six inch. The addition that connects the TV which is called. Portal. TV is not yet supported for the zoom calls meanwhile, that's not all folks next week on Wednesday Google holds its annual fall hardware product event where it's expected to unveil a new top of the line smartphone and updated streaming device and a new take on the nest home hub video display unit last year's nest. Didn't work with zoom or initially even with Google's meat though it does now but not zoom zooms coming later, and I know I can pretty much rest assured that the new Google video display unit we'll be working with zoom and hopefully working well

Thank you so much for joining us again today Dr Legs. Thank you for having back I. Love it here. We, are always happy to have you back. I really use you slide into my deals like, Hey, you know we talk about this. You created the perfect platform. So, tell me likes what was your initial reaction to the visuals as well as audio. In my chest, my reactions were. Still. Got It. That's what I thought initially like I could drop down get back up and I didn't out nor did I di- I was really proud of myself. Out of that. And it was so free nervous. The nineties Misao Josiah, I, grew up in Atlanta I grew up in college park. So here in Franks key on the radio was normal and regular everyone was like look at this homage homage and that was unexpected and then all the commentary and it's all based on this over sexualization of women and I was like, okay let's see the skull but everybody only defaulted to the over sexualization of the black woman based on this. Stereotype. The stereotype is the idea that. Lack, women typically our class figured lighter skin and with some tape of nine kinky hair, the the the Mulatto type woman is sexually overt and think a Karma Jones right. So Carmen in that movie would be the idea of a jazz about but people forget the conversation where. Black women and their relation also centralized as mammy. So fat dark skinned black women who have kinky hair who are considered not necessarily sexual, right? Because they're not the Jacksonville and yet they reproduce and take care of children. They are the form other four People Gov as the Welfare Queen, they're having tax they're producing but certainly seen as very sexual, and then there's also the Sapphire and the Sapphire is comes from and Andy rate in it's considered that kind of ball buster type woman who is like all well, you can't handle me and. Attitudinal and maybe like a clair huxtable, I will tell you when we will be together in this way and then there's the superwoman. So the Black Superwoman, this idea that women can make a dollar out of fifteen cents, take your communities in their children and their partners and their job and every. Old In an amazing and they're never exhausted or tired always pleasant attitude and the considered asexual right because there are so strong and they don't even need sex and nobody's willing to really them because they don't need have this. Physical pleasure or satisfaction lives. All of these other stereotypes? The only one that people went to focus on was the jets as I pigeonholing. So what do you think that is do you think that people aren't even aware of all these other stereotypes? Be Aware but I don't think that their sexuality is as amped up and I think that a black woman in charge of her own sexual pleasure is scary for some folks. We have a lot of shame I was personally told as a child to call maybe China pocketbook Zionist, governor. Yeah You keep your pocketbook close and you keep it off the floor. Right those are the two things you learned and I was like. That's interesting. Why would it ever be on the floor but the idea that if you had his own sexual pleasure, your type of Ho, your some type of one time and. over-centralised homequote not wifey material right and so I don't think the other ones get as much play because they are somewhat more acceptable.
