Places to Fly Fish
"Desportivo fly-fishing has become a favorite way for many urbanites to decompress. And that's how Chris Santillo started his fifty places recreation guides. He now also writes about places to paddle bicycle golf end snowboard, but his number one passion is fly fishing Chris thanks for joining US great to be here, Rick. Thanks what is it about fly fishing that those who know it and love it or so passionate about I've thought about this a lot oftentimes when I'm out on the river and I think that people come at it from a lot of different directions I. I think there's the chance to be out in nature in a quiet and beautiful place. There's an old saying that's trout don't live in ugly places and neither do bone Fisher Tarp in Atlantic Salmon. So you're usually in pretty pristine places that can support these fish species. About especially, if you're river fishing about being in the water, I don't mean to sound cliche but there is something about the oneness of being with the river in that sense of flow I drive a lot over mountains and past beautiful rivers in Europe and the United States and I see a lot of people with hip Bhutan standing deepen in the river and there is something. Special about that I would imagine you have there is a feeling of being. In the moment and in the flow of life of the rivers as a metaphor for flow of life and time passing, and it's never the same water that you're standing in and I think there is something profound rap subliminal about that that has an appeal There is an analytic. A fly fishing I think it has appealed to people the whole idea of trying to determine what the Fisher eating at a given time, and then trying to either look in your fly box and find the the right fly that seems to match the kind of bugs at the trout might eating or I know some friends will bring a fly tying vice in some feathers and hair and hooks to the side of a stream, and if they don't have what the right bug is at the time or the right fly, they will go and tie it. Up on the spot and hope that they're going to make that match matching the hatches, the term that writer named Ernie Schreiber came up with years ago the hatch being the kind of insect that is occurring on the river at that time but just having the arsenal and matching the flame with the others that are being eaten that's probably integral to being successful fly, Fisher and very important, and you'll find some anglers that are you know better equipped than others I've been out with some friends who will have literally five hundred or a thousand flies. I usually have one or two boxes and and hope that what I have. Oh, cover things ninety percent of the time, but there's always ten percent that doesn't work and one blanket work. Great. This morning in another flight would work great in the same hole this afternoon exactly because what happens on many river systems as you will have different sorts of insects emerging coming out of river or settling down upon the river at different times of the day you might have may flies that are. Popping up from the bottom of the river as Nymphs, and then turning into adult bugs and being on the surface in the morning, and that might be a white insect, the size of your Pinky Nail, and then in the afternoon as it gets warmer, the grasshoppers might become active and the wind may be him into the river and they are green and yellow, and they're the size of your thumb. It's sort of a a battle going on what are the it is it's man versus nature. Chris and Taylor has written a dozen best selling books about outdoor adventures in his fifty places series. One of his titles collects the thoughts of Passionate Anglers Y. I, fly fish and their favorite fishing places are covered in fifty more places to fly fish before you die you'll also see Chris's byline and major sport fishing publications.
Coronavirus cases rise as Europe begins to see second wave
"Europe's covid nineteen cases are spiking. Here's how four different countries are trying to stop a second wave by Melissa. A resurgence in covid nineteen cases as gripped countries across Europe leaving politicians grappling without a curb. The spread of the virus governments are now strengthening regulations around mask wearing limiting the number of people that can gather in public spaces and honing in on areas with particularly high numbers of cases. This week Europe experienced a record high number of new Corona virus cases reaching seventy one, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, five on September twenty first according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and control more than half of European countries have reported a greater than ten percent increase in the past two weeks. Hans clued the World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe said at a briefing. Even countries that had largely avoided the first corona virus wave such as the Czech Republic are now seeing surges stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter in the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week prime. Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months warning that the country is at a perilous turning point. Many. Of the new restrictions however look different to those imposed at the beginning of the pandemic rather than implementing uniform nationwide regulations. Many countries are now opting for more localized approaches. Why are governments in Europe locking down by region. Countries are wary of nationwide lockdowns that would have crippling impacts on their economies. Local restrictions allow governments to curb the spread of the virus while keeping parts of the country and the economy open. But restrictions are also different this time because the nature of the pandemic itself has changed new infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people who are less likely to die of the virus. The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. Even if the number of cases are high, the impact in terms of hospitalization and deaths is very different compared to March says Dr Jacobo Mendiola Ross, the Director and coordinator of the committee responding to Corona Virus in Catalonia. Rather than calling for stay at home owners, many new restrictions, target bars, restaurants, or other public venues that young people may be more likely to frequent. But the new restrictions could change if older people began falling ill and greater numbers already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain of the past two weeks leading to upticks in hospital admissions rising case numbers threatened to overrun hospitals and healthcare services if not managed carefully. We are not in the situation we were in March yet says, Dominic Costa Yulia, a member of the French Academy of Science and the Vice Dean of research for the Faculty of Medicine at the Sorbonne University. Here, how four European countries are responding to the recent surge of Corona? Virus. Spain. Spain has been facing a resurgence of covid nineteen cases since July and now has the highest infection rate in Europe. Over the past two weeks one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand, new covid nineteen cases have been reported with close to a third of cases occurring in Madrid the country's capital. The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than six, hundred, forty, thousand and hospitals are reaching their maximum capacity. On, September Eighteenth eastbound de as a USO. The president of the Madrid region announced a partial lockdown of the thirty seven most affected parts of the region which came into effect on Monday the measures which affect close to eight hundred, fifty, thousand people many of whom live in the poorest parts of the city require individuals to provide justification for trips out of their neighborhoods and has limited the number of people allowed in restaurants or retail establishments. The News of the lockdown sparked protests in Madrid where hundreds gathered on. September twentieth the groups that organized. The protests said in a statement that the government has done little to protect vulnerable people in the city and have instead opted for stigmatisation exclusion and territorial discrimination. France. On September twelve French health authorities reported ten, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, one new cases the highest number since the pandemic began in March since then daily cases have risen to more than thirteen thousand, the cumulative number of covid nineteen cases is now at four, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, three, and continues to rise. It has the second highest number of total cases in. Europe after Spain. The government has delegated the task of implementing new regulations to regional authorities. Currently, the outbreaks appeared to be occurring in certain locations and not in others and a nationwide lockdown would have unnecessary economic repercussions Prime Minister Jean Castex has said. In Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. All major hot spots for the virus authorities have implemented local measures to curb the spread and Bordeaux and Marseille visits to care homes have been reduced. Dancing has been banned at bars, weddings, and local companies have been asked to make their employees work from home if possible in Marseille and Paris, the sale and consumption of alcohol on the streets after eight PM as been banned. Wearing a face mask and public is now mandatory across Paris and many of its surrounding areas riot police units, and gendarmes have been deployed to enforce these measures. However
Is Stainless Steel Really Stainless?
"Bathroom, sinks and kitchen appliances to New York's Chrysler building, and the Saint Louis. Gateway. Arch. The world sometimes seems like it's covered in stainless steel. And why not the material is not only sturdy and versatile, but also stainless as the name implies, but is it really impossible to stain stainless steel? Stainless steel is a family of materials that gets its handle from corrosion and oxidation resistant properties that protect it from rust and unsightly botches. Generally, these steals our mixture of iron end at least ten point, five percent chromium sometimes rounded to eleven percent by engineers. When exposed to oxygen and moisture a for instance, when a stainless steel pan is nick door dinged chromium is an element that produces thin oxide film, the coats the product. This self repairing feature of stainless steel ensures the object will always look smooth and shiny. Various European American metallurgists claim to have invented. This wonders material. A We do know that Croup ironworks in Germany created an acid resistant steel as early as nineteen eight, it was used for the hell of a yacht. To other German researchers discovered the relationship between chromium content and corrosion resistance that metal containing at least ten point five percent chromium had a greater resistance to corrosion. Meanwhile American. elwood Haynes patented one type of stainless steel precursor in nine eleven and English researcher. Harry brearley developed a similar material around the same time. After a four year dustup in which hanes successfully opposed brearley's attempt to patent his version of the steel, the to pooled resources to market their wares as the American stainless steel. Company. These and other stainless bells found their way into cutlery airplane parts, Gulf clubs, and Adams almost immediately. But not all stainless steel is created equal. There are four main types of stainless steel classified by structure and composition. The most common variety is static sixty, five percent of the stainless steel produced. All's in this category. A static steals can be found in products ranging from cutlery and cookware to automotive trim and industrial applications. Immaterial pains at least sixteen percent chromium no more than zero point one, five percent carbon and usually includes nickel or manganese for added their ability. Meanwhile. For riddick stainless steels contain up to twenty seven percent chromium often as well as aluminum or titanium, but if little or no nickel. means that while these materials are highly resistant to Croatian, they're less durable than their austin cousins. For riddick steals are more affordable than Austin attic varieties and are commonly used in Mufflers, exhaust, systems kitchen counters, and sinks. Then we have Martin's stainless steels which are less corrosion resistant than the first two types, but are noted for their extreme strength and durability. Of the material contains twelve fourteen percent chromium along with small amounts of Molybdenum and carbon. These steals also contain little to no nickel less than two percent. Martin's stainless steels are magnetic and are often used in products where this feature's useful like a kitchen back splash to which spice rack or other metal object can be attached without using fasteners. A finally duplex stainless steels combined the benefits of Austin night and fair right to provide enhanced decay resistance and beefed up strength and durability. metallurgists typically look to create a mix that's half Austin and half foretich. The result is material that features more chromium and less nickel than his found in Pure Austin at steals about twenty to twenty, five percent chromium and five percent nickel as well as a high level of Molybdenum. These deals are primarily used in chemical plants and piping applications. You may have noticed our use of the term resistant when referring to these stainless steels capacity for avoiding blemishes. So is the material just stain resistant or completely stain proof? And despite the hardy protection that it affords users, stainless steel is more stain less and stainless in other words while the material is highly resistant to discoloration blemishes and other imperfections, it's not completely impenetrable. Just look at the Gateway Arch, which is starting to show its age with breast and K after five decades of welcoming tourists to saint. Louis. The protective layer of film covering a stainless steel object can break down over time leading to corrosion and pitting. In addition compounds like chloride, hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide often caused the film to stress and crack. The level of rest resistance provided by a particular steel depends largely on the materials used to create it the more chromium, the more corrosion protection. The sturdier stainless steels also feature at least eight percent nickel, which provides further defense against tarnish. Some products are tagged with numbers indicating their proportions of chromium and nickel. For instance, eighteen over ten flatware is sold at a premium because it has eighteen percent chromium and ten percent nickel content providing greater protection against corrosion than ordinary flatware. For household users it's important to understand that many metals advertised a stainless steel are actually stainless steel played it. The plate is corrosion resistant, but is susceptible to damage if cut or scratched deep enough to reach the. Material because the plates can also wear off over time, buyers should clarify whether a particular product is made completely of stainless steel or simply plated. Whether played it or not. You're stainless steel appliances and other products need to be cleaned. Most of the time good old fashioned soap and water will do the trick for tougher stains. Professionals recommend variety of household remedies. A couple of dabs of olive oil or window cleaner can remove most of those pesky fingerprints and smudges while white or cider vinegar will restore shine. A don't use steel wool pads or harsh cleaning powders as they'll scratched surface. If you need to remove burnt on food from stainless steel pan, let it soak in warm water and then clean it with baking soda and Gentle Nylon or plant based scouring pad.
The pandemic is putting electronic medical records to the test
"To slow the spread of the coronavirus testing is hugely important, not just getting a test but getting the results back as quickly as possible. A recent survey found that the average wait time for results is four days with ten percent of the people surveyed waiting ten days or more a shortage of the equipment and chemicals needed to perform the test is part of the problem but the country. Also lacks bust electric medical records system which would allow information to be shared seamlessly. We wondered how much is that slowing everything down Julia? Adler. Milstein is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco where her research focuses on electronic health records. I asked her if part of the problem is all the different software providers, companies like epic and Care Cloud and Athena health not. Playing nicely together I do think there's a roadblock there I mean that's really been an Achilles heel of the past decade where we've seen so much more digitisation of health information but not as much of an effort put on making sure that that information can move around seamlessly where it's needed and I think in an ideal world. Yes. Those large companies would have cooperated and figured out how You. Build their systems in a way that we're more compatible but we also didn't really create strong incentives for them to do that, and now we're working to try to correct that and I think covert has shown a really bright spotlight on the need to do that. But but it wasn't there from the start and I think we're really paying the price for that. Now What about privacy concerns? With information being shared more widely in more places I. Wonder if patients sort of opting out may be part of the the hurdle here. It is and I mean privacy concerns. You know go go hand in hand with greater ability to move and share information because you want to be sure that it does end up in the hands and not the wrong hands and that and that the patients are involved in that in the way that you know is appropriate until I think one of the issues that that is hard to know is sort of in what what level of of detail or granularity patient want to be involved in managing. You know who sees their information and for what purposes. into do that at scale is really hard because we know different people have different preferences over all and for specific types of information, as well as for whether it's a payoff for example, like what they might want to share with health insurer versus their doctor. So it gets very complex very quickly. So I think everyone agrees we should have the privacy protection, but actually implementing that privacy protection control is is where it gets pretty pretty complicated. I'm also wondering about the cost of all this I know the federal government has already spent tens of billions of dollars to encourage the adoption of electronic medical records. Do you have a sense of the price tag on what this effort could cost to get it? Right I don't think we've really seen good cost estimates because part of it is sort of what are we paying for I don't think at this point we're really paying for the infrastructure. This is really about linking up all of the digital entities and writing down rules of the road. I. Don't think anyone really has a sense of the Price Tag. You know my personal sense is that it would be lower than the investment that we've made so far because there's so much cost just the digitisation itself. But there's also some real costs in in in trying to figure out how to make all the different systems talk to each other, but potentially lots of savings to I imagine. Oh absolutely there have been some estimates of that and they've been in this sort of seventy to eighty billion dollars. A Year of potential savings if we really were to get to sort of fully standardize seamless information sharing a fact that hospitals are filling out spreadsheets with their covid testing data and sending it to the federal government, it's staggering to think that we're still doing that you know in the year twenty twenty. But then also to think about all the costs of all the people in those hospitals who are manually entering data into a spreadsheet, it's sort of hard to believe. Yeah, and if I never have to try to remember when my knee surgery was when I see a new doctor. It'll be too soon. How many of those health questionnaires if we all filled out again and again? Yeah. No. On the patient side exactly I mean, we haven't even addressed those costs and also just I think that the stress that we put on patients when it's clear that their doctor doesn't know their medical history and so if you were to show up today and you know tell your doctor that you've had cova test and then for that doctor to say, Oh, well, I don't have any way to access that information at his not delivering patient centered. CARE. Julia Adler Milstein is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco. And now for some related links, another wrinkle in all this, just because you're test results are in the system doesn't mean your doctor we'll see them right away. These are busy people with lots of patients counting on them. Adler Milstein says so far. The solution is just hanging doctors with lots of alerts, which if you've ever had to mute a group text chat, you know can create notification fatigue, and while most hospitals now have some kind of electronic health records system public health departments are still far behind relying on. Phones and even fax machines to share information. That's the subject of an episode of the health podcast trade-offs from my former marketplace colleague Dan. Guerrero tiene molly had him on this show awhile back Dan found that technology and data gaps key public health officials dangerously out of the loop, the fight, the spread of Corona virus. We have a link at marketplace tech DOT ORG along with results from a survey from the Pew. Charitable trusts found that most Americans support to improve how medical records are shared between providers but have since. Concerns about privacy and accuracy and respondents were generally less comfortable with the sharing of sensitive information like Substance Abuse Mental, Health Issues and homelessness factors that can influence health but also potentially how patients are treated I'm Amy Scott and that's marketplace tech.
The new TikTok-Oracle company named ‘TikTok Global’ plans to go public in a year
"We are expecting an announcement in the next day or so on the approval of a new entity that I'm total be called tick top global getting some new details from a source close to the situation about why this proposal is expected to be approved and makes this new tick tock global majority owned in the US by source explaining that today by dance is forty percent owned by us, investors couldn't KKR SEQUOIA General Land and. And it's fifty one percent owned by Chinese nationals. Now, a new tiktok global would mirror those ownership stakes. So bike dance selling anything more than about ten percent to Oracle would make the company majority US owned now is expected to by about twenty percent of this new company tiktok global. Now, the sale of an additional stake to Walmart would further increase US ownership over that fifty percent mark multiple sources telling me that tiktok global plans to file for an IPO on one of the US stock exchanges in about a year that would again further dilute Chinese ownership and sources. Tell me that Walmart would get a seat on the. Board the board would be subject to US government approvals. I'm told by a source close to the situation and the CEO and C. Suite would be American. Now, this comes as the companies, of course, looking for a permanent CEO replace Kevin Mayor The New York Times reporting that among those that Tiktok has talked to Kevin System instagram's founder and former CEO? We are awaiting word from the president on this the deadline he said on the deal is this coming Sunday for the fact that over fifty percent of the corporate ownership would be us-based seems very much key Melissa to approval of this deal.
India records world's highest increase in new COVID-19 cases
"Now, where another record rise in daily Corona virus infections has brought the country's total case count to above five million it's adding more new cases a day than any other country in the world fueling concerns about how the economy will continue to cope with the pandemic official forecasts predict a ten percent contraction this year the government has allocated tens of billions of dollars to help battle the economic crisis but there's some head-scratching today over a new multi million dollar contract that's been awarded to Indian conglomerate Totta the BBC's around Mukherjee. What we're looking at is one hundred, seventeen million dollars to refurbish the existing parliament complex. But this is part of a larger two point seven billion dollar government project to give a face lift and modernized old colonial era government buildings in the heart of Delhi even when this plan was initially announced, which was in October last year many questioned the need to spend so much at a time when India is just coming out of its lockdown batting, a rising number of one thousand cases growing at an alarming rate, the economy has contracted by the worst in decades. Where does the government going to get this money from as you say why? Hasn't the government put this plan on ice of the government says that look this parliament complex dates way back to the nineteen twenties now since then various parliament constituencies have increased and therefore so have the number of parliamentarians and the staff there simple argument is this complex isn't big enough. The also interestingly want to build despite twenty, twenty two so that it can coincide with India celebrating seventy five years of its independence, and where's the government GonNa get the money to fund this project that is million dollar question in the same week on Monday. The government asked for parliamentary approval of to infuse nearly two point seven, two, billion dollars to. Help the ailing banking sector here in India deal with the prospects of bad loans which are likely to rise. So the message that the government has given is that we are cash strapped, but the question is, where are you going to get this money from for this kind of luxurious project at a time when India is battling a national crisis, more questions than answers then the BBC's democracy in new. Delhi. Thank you. Thank you.
Should You Offer Chat Support in Your Business?
"Like I mentioned that the top of the episode chat support is a great solution. We've been doing chat support under Ninja for over four years. Now we offer twenty, four, seven life support, and it's one of the hallmarks of our company. It's one of the big reasons why our customers stay customers and the reason people choose us over our competitors but there was a lot of work that needed to be done before we were ready to offer chat support. There's some foundational work you need to do and things you need to consider before you make that switch. It's also important to understand that once you offer chat support. It's one of those things that you want to offer it. It's really hard for you not to offer it again. So once people get used to a certain level of support, you might start with email. Then you'll at chat support if things are not going right or you didn't set yourself up properly and then you remove chat support this disgruntled some customers and really can affect their experience and mega make him feel really took something away from them that they're used to maybe enjoyed. So there are a few things I want to highlight that will help you get prepared to launch chance support in your business the right way. First of all, why would you want to offer chat support in the first place? Why don't you just stick to email more and more every single day every single month every single year chat support is becoming the new phone support. Prefer to chat. Now, text than to get on a phone call it's often faster to solve a problem get questions answered through chat suppor- think about it most people don't make phone calls or take phone calls or get phone calls that often but they sent a lot of text messages and facebook messages and what's happened all that stuff. It's a way for you to go back and forth with your customer live and get them a win in that moment in the moment, they reach you the moment they visit your website allows them to make a decision quickly rather than the hit your website, and then they're like, oh, I, have a couple questions. Let me see if they have. An e mail or contact form and most people don't even go that far they're just leave the website and check out a competitor. But if you have chat support allows them to say hey, I got a quick question. Let me just ask right now there's somebody right there and that question could be very simple. It can be somebody overlooked it could be something that's on your website or on your your sales pages, and the answer that question could make them feel confident enough to make a purchase right then and there it's also a huge benefit a huge benefit for your customers that already paying you. They feel like you always have their back and you're just one message away. And flat out chat support is just fun. You can send him Ho- Jeez and Jeff's funny images, and you can really express your brand and your style through Chad. The email really doesn't do as well. A lot of our branding is done through chance support a lot of our customers become customers because we're like everything like your style on chat your team really made me feel comfortable and welcomed in a professional yet casual way. So what are some of the things that you need to consider before you say Yep, let me go ahead and go chat support. The first thing I want to say to you is a Lotta people think okay. What software do I need to chat with? You know there's a lot of chat software out there whether it's intercom. Or. Fresh desk or Zen desk or help scout there's so many out there. Right and all the offers are pretty much assume depends on your needs not gonNa really get into that right now that's the easy part. But what are the things you need to consider is your customer base where is your customer base? Do you serve only a national market the covers maybe A. Few time zones or your customers international around the world. If that's the case you need to make sure you're able to offer your chat support twenty, four seven throughout the day. So you can cover the entire globe that means having at least three people on chat or on your customer support team. Each of them have an eight hour shift. Now, some people they start with five. It is week of chat versus seven days a week, and that's a good way to get into the game. But if your customers are global, you need to consider the fact that you can't just offer chat certain hours of the day. Those hours could just be in the middle of the night for somebody else and it's just really not a benefit at all you also. Have to take a look at if you have the manpower, the staff to be able to handle the amount of chats are getting. Now if you're on email support right now, this is not a good measure. Why? Because email support takes a little bit effort for the customer to actually send an email they'll probably go through a few other hoops or maybe how the tutorials or Do, a little bit of Reading for trying to figure it out themselves before they email, and this is while I will start with mail because it lowers the number of support requests but also drastically lowers the number of presell emails or chats or you'll messages. So as soon as you offer chat on your website, it's Gong to invite more conversation. That's a good thing because you're. Getting in touch with their customers and you're making connections, but it's also something you need to consider because if you were getting, let's say a hundred emails a day in email support. That's no indication of how many messages are going to get in chat because that's really going to open up the floodgates because now it's easily accessible. People can easily chat with you and send a message. It's not always easy to predict, but the traffic to your website is really a good indicator forgetting getting over one hundred thousand visitors to your website. You're going to have a good amount of those people chatting with you asking questions out say ten percent is a good measure at least ten percent people are going to reach out and ask questions especially, if you prompt them to ask questions, which is really cool. You noon chant. Throwing the pricing you can ask, Hey, you got any questions about pricing or choosing the right plan for yourself chataway with us. If you think about that, if you have if you have one hundred, thousand visitors every month that means ten thousand people chat with you every month now you might think that's a law is a lot and it's better free to over estimate and be ready for the traffic.
Fed Signals Three More Years of Near-Zero Interest Rates
"Fed is certainly looking toward a longer term recovery here even though as fed chair, Jerome Powell noted economic activity has picked up since the second quarter what can you tell us about the Fed's latest projections and the decision to hold rates near Zero until at least twenty twenty three. Sure. So this is a pretty remarkable forecast although not entirely surprising given the Fed's new framework that they announced. Recently, they basically said that they're going to keep rates lower for longer. Now, we know with a little bit more specificity that they see them staying near zero as you said, through twenty, twenty three, which is a. Really Long Time they're basically saying that an anticipated raising interest rates again until the unemployment rate is around four percent and an inflation is back up to two percent, which is a lot longer than than they waited during this past expansion in two thousand fifteen when the Fed raised rates unemployment was around five percent and inflation was just around one point three. So that basically means is they WANNA see the economy further along on the path to recovery almost back to you know to it someone call full hall or certainly wear closer to where it was before the pandemic hit before they start raising interest rates again. What are the projections for the remainder of this year? So they they've actually improved somewhat in they. Now project unemployment will average around seven to eight percent during the last three months of the year that's a bit lower from where they saw it in June when they projected about nine to ten percent So remember the unemployment rate hit a high in April of fourteen point seven and it was down to eight point four percent last month. So that's certainly a little bit better but I think that they are also trying to emphasize that the gains that we're seeing now. Or kind of the easy the low hanging fruit. If you will, you know kind of the quick bounceback that you get just from businesses that were closed reopening again but the risk is increasing that you know certain sectors are going to have a harder time coming back a longer recovery. So Powell has said many times that the Fed will use all the tools at can to support the recovery, which he noted has been uneven for Americans. What actions is the Fed planning to take to build on the steps it's already taken to help support the economic recovery especially on even one. Well it's an important question because heading into this crisis, you know a lot of folks were questioning whether the Fed really had enough tools to address a serious downturn and what we've seen so far is that the steps they've taken have been really effective especially the steps that they took in March when there was a lot of financial markets stress, they revamped some emergency credit facilities that they'd use in the last crisis that got. Credit flowing in kind of quality. Some of that volatility rates as we've discussed are very low they're going to stay near zero. They are purchasing making these long term asset purchases of government bonds, securities, and they're going to continue doing that for some some time there a little bit vague today about exactly how long they plan to do that. But that will that will help you know really we heard fed chair Powell say that. That the Fed, the Fed can lend to companies I mentioned another one they're doing they have the mainstream lending program although there hasn't been a lot of a lot of interest in that but they can't just give money directly to people that solely in the purview of Congress and so he reiterated again, we've heard him say this a number of times that what we're experiencing really probably will require more fiscal support more money from the Government to give to people not to just lend to them. But just to give them to help make these improvements that there's only so much. The Fed can really do right in the Fed to stay pretty apolitical here but Powell has noted the impact of the federal stimulus which we know another aid packages currently tied up on Capitol. Hill. But it seems like a pretty clear message that the Fed feels more federal aid is needed. Absolutely. I mean I think that when the economy is bad obviously right now you know there's a public health crisis. It's pretty clear the reasons for that but still to some extent I think we've seen. In past crises historically when things are not going while the Fed tends to get blamed and I'm not saying the federal Powell's comments are politically driven but I think he wants to remind people that that look. Yes. There's only so much. We can do I think there's pressure on the on the Fed there's always pressure on them when the economy is struggling to do more and and I think that smart of him to just remind people that there's another big player in economic policy and that in that if they're concerned enough people on the hill are concern especially about the direction of the economy. Then really they're the ones who also have to play a bigger role. If they want the Fed to do more, they're probably going to do need to do more as well.

Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about what you should keep doing as a marketer. So this is part three of our series start stop and keep again it's great exercise you can do with your leadership team. So I guess I'll START I what you should keep doing if your credit card so you should keep creating content and you should stay consistent because the content game usually I'm GonNa say I'm going to go a little further out two to three years to start to see good success with it too many people give up too. Early on it and once you're able to continue the consistency, you start to see success it's going to continue to compound and the beauty of it is your audience will get bigger and you don't have to put in a lot of additional work. In the next thing you should continually keep doing his whatever's working for. I. Don't know why. But what a lot of people do in marketing is this is working like adware marketing Seo. Law. Let's go vogue some more stuff you wanna focus on more stuff eventually expand, but you don't want a slowdown whatever's working for you want to double down on that stuff. And the other thing is, let's say you are a little more events and you have a couple of people reporting to you what you want to be doing. It's not just focused on the business goals, but what you should be doing is focused on the problems that your team is facing. So helping them with whatever blockers they have, because that's what your job is as a manager these people you have to help, support them and get their if they're failing it's. Your fault if they're failing and if they don't hit their goals, it comes back to you. It's still your fault. So we should do continue to do is continue to support your people and ultimately the easiest way to do that is just a continuing to care right the people that care your best marketers on your team will stay longer they're going to perform better, and it's just going to be a great work experience for them not motivated a up I think. In the past you know being direct and giving people the beat down all the time it doesn't work. It doesn't scale. So back to you, kneel. You should keep experimenting. What you'll find is even when something works for you right now, it may not work for you in the long run. For example, I used to do sign with Google on one of my earlier companies. Kiss Kiss metrics had a huge convergence like ninety plus percent, and then with crazy as we did, it grew conversions and then eventually years passed by and people had privacy insecurity concerns runs remove the signing with Google requirement are conversions went through the roof. Through the roof more like ten percent but it's still better than nothing and that's when we learned that you should enforce them. We give them the option and we bizarre conversions out that may or may not work for you. But the point I'm trying to make is just because something worked once it doesn't mean it's going to work for issue that keep. Experimenting and trying, and you've gotTA re experiment on the stuff that did produce fruitful results in the past because things change people get used things that it may not work as well and the future I think there's a quote here from injuries and Horowitz the venture firm strong views loosely held. I think it's really important to just to have a strong opinion on. Things. But if you see data that proves otherwise than just be willing to change your mind quickly, I think trying to have an ego in all of this it doesn't help for the long term I think the other thing I'll add to this is keeping in touch with people. So earlier talked about starting to network with people, meeting people but you. Just do a good job of every now and then circle back through hey, how're things going you know show a picture of her baby if you're neil or whatever like that helps emotion that helps you connect with people and I interviewed Jordan Harbinger of the Jordan Harbinger podcast he does really well for himself and you know he has a free networking course. Research Jordan Harbinger networking course it's really good east probably be charging for it but it literally tells you what to do like you know when you wake up in the morning you have these go to the bottom of your your message or your your text messages message people right and just figure out your own ways to keep in touch with people. We all have our own styles for me. I like to get a group of people together and maybe do zoom or do like a meet up if post covid but whole idea here is that you're keeping the motions going because of relationships go much further than just marketing but you know it's it's GonNa be good personal relationships and good good relationships. And, you should keep learning more whether it's from articles, networking events, conferences, virtual events looked the moment you
Episode 008: Using Artificial Intelligence & Technology to Improve Outcomes - burst 02
"Yeah. So what did I don't even know if you have this kind of conversation but do you do you ever have clinicians or? Folks are in the field in the trenches. So to speak that are worried about trays like you bring trays. I'm not gonNA have a job anymore. You know what that's listened to. Mike my vision number be really transparent which I always have bow-ties. I hope this will be live and it was the goes but but the reality is is my opinion is I don't I leaving the human being right I believe in therapist being a critical component I'd been through a northbound thirty myself or a diss or injuries all kinds of stuff you probably have to rough. That interaction man I believe in. At The Mayo manipulation and things along those lines that can't be done by technology today right? I also believe that. Just like any other profession that we have the top ten percent of the profession and we got the other presented at the bottom ten percent right or twenty percent that might just you know the eighty twenty rule or? Ways look at that but the reality is and I think that tracer can. Provide a more efficient and effective process. and. Delivery of of incur modalities or gently quantified outcome measures. Than, even your typical condition can, but it cannot do everything. It still takes brilliant conditions do that. Now with that said, I think that what we'll see moving forward with telehealth. Portrays. Aside tell how technology etcetera. I hope what happens is that we get the best clinicians working with patients. Are, your for lack of better term half asked clinicians and again, better right Buddy I. Go to the New Yorker. Me Over and again, it goes for any profession right? You weed out the bad. You keep the good. The good ones are going to always have a place, the good ones and the great ones they're they're a staple and they're going to provide incredible value. No matter what technology brings to the table but ultimately, we're GONNA be able to weed out the poor ones in have. Far Less you have ten collision aquatic maybe two or three if you use technology the right way. Yeah I always wants right? Yeah. Now, I tell that to clients all the time I'm like listen this stuff can be like a force multiplier I mean it can make your outcome. Super Super Good. But if you're going to be kind of mediocre telling the line doing what you gotta do to get paid then yes, it's going to be detrimental to your involuntary.
World isn't meeting biodiversity goals, UN report finds
"The number of plants and animals on the planet that are at risk today would be far higher without globally agreed safeguards in action to protect him but it still far from good enough UN by diversity exports sat on Tuesday in call for far greater commitment from only Chicago to safeguard human wellbeing in the planet's the body that oversees these work. The Convention on biodiversity urged those gathering for UN summit at the end of the. Month to broaden their ambition from the convention. Here's Executive Secretary Elizabeth Marina Deputy Executive Secretary David Cooper talking to UN uses Daniel Johnson just if you wouldn't mind Elizabeth Merima give me the classification of diversity and in particular why is it important in simple words by devastate is everything around us and when I say everything around us, it means everything we do as human activities affected by busy. Each could be what we do on the land what we're doing. What we do in the forest, what we do on species, animals, plants, I mean, what we do is we produce our food as we consume all by diversities. So our human actions in the nature of virus around us and what we're finding is that if fact but diversity is in massive trouble and your report from the conventional biological diversity, the UN Conventional Biological Diversity tells us that only six out of the world's twenty goals on biodiversity have. been achieved only partially achieved by the deadline, which is actually this year. So to be honest I wasn't aware that the governments of the world had agreed in Japan twenty ten to a series of biodiversity targets and you're saying that only six of twenty goals of being partially achieved by the two thousand twenty deadline. So what is the concern? Which of these? Obviously a very bad report card where have we gone wrong and please don't say everywhere. No because they some progress. But indeed unfortunately by diversity's declining it unprecedented level rate and precious deriving they decline unfortunately. So increasing just as underlying. So indeed this scorecard, his only identify six of the twenties so not even half in the seats. In the areas of deforestation, where at least deforestation is gone down by Fed or two percent fisheries. Management fisheries catches also improved clearly indicating where appropriate policies on fisheries management have been put in place. Then the fishery cage hazing and abundance is increased and improved education of alien species. Particularly from the islands Z. Qualley improved protected areas has increased from ten percent to fifteen percent in terrestrial in three to seven percents on marine areas we also learned my says extinction fishes extension at really threatened in the history of mankind still where conservation measures they've been put in place every improved and reduce extinction of species without which. We and be waste than what we are talking today I think joining us now we are very fortunate have Mr David Cooper. Deputy Executive Secretary of the UN. Conventional. Biological, diversity. Welcome to you Mr Cooper. Thank you very much. Daniel. Thank you ever so much for joining us. We were just talking there with Elizabeth, my executive secretary on the really mixed report card. I. Think that's the charitable worth putting it off. The biodiversity targets that was back in two, thousand ten. So a decade on. We've got six of twenty goals partially achieved although Elizabeth was saying that the has been some good work on eliminating foreign species from islands and in the fisheries to and other national programs that perhaps you could tell me a bit more about to give us maybe a little bit of positive news. What is a pretty Hesse mystic outlook for humankind and also forbade diversity moving forward? Yes. Thank you very much indeed even in those targets that haven't been pasta passages talks that haven't been achieved. Is. Some signs the progress as as in his methods as as mentioned in which Houston deforestation rates in fooding fisheries management in dealing with invasive alien species and in reducing. Rate. So numbers of bird mammal extinctions that occurred over the past ten years or indeed over the life of the Convention would bean at least to perhaps up to four times higher without the actions of being taken. So one clear message despite the disappointing results one clear message is policies do work if they are put in place and implemented, and so we need to learn from that we. Need to be encouraged by that, we need to step up those policies more widely in order to reduce the greater biodiversity loss. The report also shows that if he wants to actually not only we do survey to biodiversity loss that Ben that curve and put me on a path to recovery than more fundamental actions also needed looking at the way we produce and consume food in particular that. Sustainable production and consumption captains more broadly as well. I'm just going to dive in that because the report is pretty alarming and I'm very glad to hear about some of these national projects that have been successful in. Boosting bio-diversity, but the report says that the rate of biodiversity loss is unprecedented in human history I guess we did know that really and precious intensifying and living as a whole being compromised, and of course, we can't have this discussion without talking about covert and how the degradation of our natural environment has I suppose, but closer into contact with viruses in the natural world, is that the kind of thing that's really going to galvanize support for greater support for native greater protection for nature if we don't do so we're going to be huge trouble ourselves forms. Suddenly I I. Hope. So there's Very clear evidence as you say that the degradation of of ecosystems encroachment into international areas, unregulated wildlife trade, these things. Increase the risk of emergence of future. Disease increase the risk of future pandemics, and conversely, if we can invest in conservation an investigation regulating control wildlife trade, we will reduce those risks. So these are suddenly Lead important reasons on top of wanting to prevent six-man south extinction. These really positive reasons also for investing in IDA versity.
Mixed report card forprotecting natural biodiversity can be turned round, say experts

Vaccines and the Future of COVID with Epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford
"This isn't the same rehashed discussion of covert. This is. Well more worth listening to. This is stuff that you need to know. This is medicine we're still practicing. I'm building. Of course, I by friend and Co host zooming in Dr Steven. Tailback he's a quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care, and he continues to fight on the front lines of the covert battle here in California for which we are eternally grateful. Steve. How you doing? Hey Bill. Good to see you. And R various special guest Dr, George Rutherford. He is the internationally lauded head of infectious disease and global epidemiology at the UCSF School of Medicine. He is also UCSF's professor of pediatrics and adjunct. Professor School of Public Health at California Berkeley. I had a chance to print out Georgia's see. It's one hundred, twenty, six pages long with two hundred and twenty one published papers and so many important accolades. So I'm going to read the whole thing to you now. Only. Kidding. Dr Authored although socially distance. Thanks so much for joining real pleasure. So Professor of epidemiology and biostatistics director at the prevention and Public Health Group. What do you do? Well, I'm an academic. So I teach school right I do research and I provide advice. So the mission of anybody in Academic Vinnie academic medical entity is education research, clinical care and public service. So my clinical care is really the clinical practice of public. Health and I advise the City Health Department San Francisco Department of Public Health, the California Department of Health and some of the various health departments around the state on approaches to controlling the Kobe deputy hammock. You did mention that your research is partly funded by CDC. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. Hell is a bit about that and how that affects your work during these crazy days. So I've worked with CDC for decades and most recently. I've been doing predominantly HIV related work in developing countries as part of the Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief I, have a large competent, very competent research group that basically tries to help governments and occasionally universities but mostly governments CDC missions in developing countries to understand what's going on with their. HIV. Epidemics, how things are working to evaluate progress and to discover new ways to try and stop the spread of HIV and try and. Improve. Clinical outcomes of people who already have HIV. So cases per one million population worldwide is running at about three thousand, five, hundred cases per one million in the US is running at about nineteen thousand, three hundred. So did we screw up or do we have a population that's more difficult to manage? Yes and yes, we have six fold higher numbers of cases than we should have and other countries like India may eventually catch up. I think that the US mister major opportunity early on and that was the problem with not having up tests and having the wrong tests and having tested didn't work and trying to control tests and trying to restrict out tests were being used for whom they are being used. I think they've always been you know a whole myriad lack of policy leadership which the states. have taken over and I think first of all the bay area in which the six county health departments acted in concert to move to a shelter in place ordinance early on on March. Sixteenth, and there is a very good reason for March sixteenth it was the day before Saint Patrick's Day, and then later the state moved in the same direction. So I think California's really been a leader in this. Now, you wouldn't know it from the last two months or three months since mid June under there's a huge wave of new infection a disappointed but I think we still are leaders in this. We showed data today in medicine grand rounds at UCSF that looked at numbers of deaths per hundred cases and in New York ten percent in. San. Francisco, it's zero point, seven percent. So it's less than one percent in San Francisco and the next best in a big city is something I one and a half percent did we screw up as a country? Totally? Did we screw up regionally in the north in northern California I don't think. So we scrub stay somewhat I think we made the reopening little to easy S. Really Hindsight Wealth speak that hindsight just for a second I mean in New York they've had four hundred, forty, five, thousand cases in thirty, three, thousand deaths. So they got a hold of this thing long before we did but we've already exceeded the case we're up to seven, hundred, fifty, thousand cases almost eighty percent more than they've had, and we've had fourteen thousand deaths. Half of what they've had when you say that we as a country may have screwed up, do we have a hold of this thing now and how much of it is that the population is not wearing masks enough especially young people who've decided that they're not as susceptible what New York was bad luck and they had continuous importation from Europe and may have had who? knows. Thousands of cases imported from Europe each one of which starts a new chain of transmission. We in San Francisco we probably at tens coming from Asia and you know the first death care was on February six dot and that was diagnosed retrospectively. Womanhood attended a convention in Las Vegas choose living in Santa, Clara County near San Jose and that convention probably people from China. or at least in the in the hotel that's probably where she got it. If she'd come home and hit a large crowd event at the wrong time with very high levels of virus inter nose and throat and spread it around we could have been just as bad office New York but we weren't and that's really a question of luck. So New York at Bath Block. But guess what we do. This was coming since the thirty first of December. That's when the UBA provincial CDC notified the central Chinese CDC that Oh, by the way, we may have a little problem here the central Chinese CD setup team to Wuhan on December thirty first basically started began an immediate investigation started closed down and drain the whole thing under control. That was the starting Bell I. Mean there was basically two months lost now CDC will say, well, we were having we we developed tests. We did this. We did that. Yeah, that's true. But then the FDA threatened to decertify their laboratory that was producing testing. They produce tests in the hundreds, not in the tens of thousands which was what was needed thousands. Of people came from Europe to New York and it got spread around helped by a couple of super spreader events where people in fact, at one person they affect hundreds of people at the same
I Have $50,000 Left Over From College Scholarships
"In the lobby of Ramsey Solutions Jona joins us for the question John Holliman. Ramsey thank you very much for taking my question. Sure what's up? So in a little over week, I'm going to be starting my college experience and I'm in a very fortunate position to where I'm receiving hundred thousand dollars towards my college cost Lloyd ago. Thank you however through a number of merit aid scholarships that four year total is going to be about fifty thousand meaning the residual is kind of up there and that's my question is. In the four years that I'm in college. What should what should I do with that fifty thousand that remains Where you going to school that? Ole Miss Bonus or what are you studying chemical engineering with a potential double major in Mandarin Chinese of course. Goodness. Gracious. Wow smoke. That's fun well. Here's the thing. Joni you. The amount of money you can make investing fifty thousand. Pales. In. Comparison. To What The To to what your degree is worth. In the marketplace, so you are a better investment. than. Mutual Fund is. Now granted. We don't need that fifty thousand and we don't think for you to graduate. Now, without debt but if the merit scholarships dropped for some reason, this fifty thousand sitting there not invested Is or not trapped in something is worth more as an insurance policy on you getting through school without that then than any amount of money would make. So let's say it may ten percent Sharon cry so you'd make five thousand bucks. And you. So you'd make in four years you make twenty grand correct, which isn't spit compared to what you're going to be making absolute. Be My. Hope. I think that's fairly predictable with you. Sir. So the You know what you could make on. That is not as good as making sure you get through debt free. So if you WanNa just park it in a mutual fund or a money market account you can if you wanted to put it in a low risk, low volatility, mutual fund or some kind that's fine but you could still lose some of it. I would not put it into retirement account I would not put it into a super long term thing because then you're going to be tempted if you get squeezed to borrow instead of using that money. And again, you're the magic sauce not investing. Investing long-term become the magic sauce, but it'll come from your income that you're going to create. So pretty incredible situation you got yourself into. This is neat. Your Mom and dad did a great job obviously without much merit scholarships you did a great job. So those are academics a lot of them. Yes yeah. Okay. Very cool. So what is the deal with the Mandarin Chinese you want to go on the mission field or something? No. So That's actually through a federally funded program at Ole Miss this a flagship. Mandarin Program, and so I've studied Chinese since middle school and it just so happens that as I was searching for college that program popped up and I was able to go there, visit them at a really good impression and. It seems as if they had a good impression of me. So but I mean, you didn't have there wasn't like mixing that with the chemical engineering and some way that you had a certain goal. It's just you've enjoyed the language exactly Oh. Okay. All right. That makes that makes sense. I thought maybe the two together we're taking somewhere. I didn't know what you were doing. Okay. Might might be international business of some kind but Wow and what a great language to know in today's world. Absolutely. So very cool. Why Shop Guy Man thanks for coming by.
West Coast officials are fighting wildfires and misinformation
"News tonight officials in Oregon say they are preparing for a mass fatality incident as devastating wildfires grow larger tonight across the American West Coast the governor of Oregon saying dozens of people are still missing half a million residents in Oregon being ordered to evacuate their homes. Let's see caffeine off. Across the West, an explosion of a raging infernos, devastating and deadly the flames consuming over a million acres. Oregon dozens are missing at least fifteen killed in Oregon, California, and Washington. Among them. Thirteen year old Wyatt Toft and his grandmother Peggy both died in the wildfires in Oregon's Marion, county the boy trying to escape the flames was found in the car with the body of his dog in his lap. More than half a million residents have been ordered to evacuate more than ten percent of the state's population highways packed as residents flee approaching flames marriage to grab my family and my dog and. Supplies but otherwise. Sophal. Just feel sorry for all the people I hopefully they. Got All their animals and stuff. Many coming back to find their neighborhoods incinerated. This was my room. There's my of marquess on wood burning oven in neighboring Washington state, the fire claiming the life of this one year old boy badly burning his parents who are hospitalized in critical condition smoke choked skies casting an eerie orange glow across much of Oregon. And the city of Portland the mayor declaring a state of emergency the air quality here. Now, one of the worst of any major city on earth. The fires across the West fueled by winds and dry conditions climate scientists say hotter and drier temperatures are causing flames to burn with unprecedented intensity. We're in the midst of climate crisis We are experiencing weather conditions, the likes of which we've never experienced in our lifetime we're experiencing what so many people predicted decades and decades ago. But all of that now is reality it's observed satellite images shows smoke smothering the west coast from California to Washington State. A. Hundred major fires are burning over seven thousand square miles an area, the size of New Jersey in California five of the largest wildfires ever burning this year more than fourteen hundred firefighters battling to contain the blazes that has scorched over three point, one million acres fire on all sides all around us all roads and with no end in sight many fearing a scene like this one in Phoenix Oregon these before and after satellite images show the town obliterated. Gone. Try to as much as we could, but we didn't. Statistician. So awful.
Housing, Healthcare, and COVID-19
"Today, we're speaking with Barbara Dipietro. Who Directs the policy and advocacy activities for the national healthcare for the Homeless Council. Barbara, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Yeah it's so. I'm so glad you're you're you're with us today especially during covid nineteen where I feel like the healthcare and housing systems are really failing us and intersectional and kind of dangerous way. So we really wanted to focus on this today. But I could you tell us a little bit about yourself? How did you end up getting involved with this type of work and what do you do for your for your work? Thanks much I came to this work working for the state of. Maryland. In the Department of Health and did a public health policy for about ten years both of the governor's office and for the Department of Health I did interagency family and children's services and and was a staff to the. Agency. Council on Homelessness. I was the opportunity to write Maryland's first a ten year plan to end homelessness, and this was back when those ten year plans were really just getting going under the Bush administration and Interagency Councils to. A homeless policies within states were really becoming the thing to do and and so that was precisely the time when I was in public service and my eyes were opened at that point to the breadth of issues affiliated with Homelessness and just how preventable homelessness is if we could just get good public policies to address it. And that was obviously no more. Well, illustrated than health department and in healthcare, and so one the things that I, the partners that we worked with healthcare for the homeless out here in Maryland they introduced me to a network of healthcare for the homeless providers nationally, and that's where I was. Started working with the National Healthcare for the Homeless Council and came familiar with them, and then they had an opportunity for director of policy and I've been in this role for eleven years now. And really excited to be doing just so much more deeper work on healthcare on homelessness in good public policy. So just to start with. I feel like the image that people have of homelessness doesn't actually match the reality of who experiences homelessness, how people become homeless and what it really looks like to experience housing instability. Can You just define homelessness for our listeners and paint a picture to help us better understand what it really looks like sure. I know we tend to conjure in our mind a street homeless man who was a chronic. That is what most Americans think of when they think of as homelessness. Really that population is about ten percent of the total homeless population in the country. Overwhelmingly, what we are seeing our low income working families are working people If you look in shelters most shelters a third to a half of shelter. Shelter stays our children. When you look at it working families who when we think about. Earning eight nine or ten dollars an hour, ten dollars an hour is twenty dollars. Excuse me twenty thousand dollars a year at fulltime salary. That's still not enough to make rent and pay bills and meet your food needs and and and and so people even when they are working even if it's not minimum wage still maybe in the shelter because they can't afford housing. So the official definition of homelessness, it may not surprise your listeners to know that there are many federal different definitions of homelessness depending on the program you were looking to access and so the definition of homelessness if you were in a housing world is more narrow than in the healthcare world. and. So then it's different even for the schools. And so we're looking at obviously street homelessness but also people who were living in transitional housing programs, permanent housing programs, people who were doubled up with friends or family really unstable. There's just a really A. Many people do not just solely stay in one place so they may be staying in a shelter for few nights. They may bounce back onto the street they may be able to stay for a couple of nights with friends or family member. Maybe, a spare couch something like that. Many of our clients do work, and so they do have some income were there on disability and they have some income. So that income allows them to pay a hundred dollars for the for sleeping on a couch for a couple of weeks.

Yes that's right. Attend and sit in the front row university studies done on what it takes to get better grades found. There were two critical steps that getting better grades in college attending class was the first criteria that means showing up seems obvious but in today's cell phone society that also means attending class and I repeat and paying attention we're addicted to our phones and their immediate accessibility Twenty, four seven. If you're going to take the time to go to training then attended, it was also discovered that sitting in the front row, reduce distractions between the instructor and the student again in our virtual world and cell phone era multitasking is at an all time high turn them off pay attention and get more from your training another advantage of sitting in the front. Row is higher engagement with an instructor. When working with a team I can tell you from much experience those attendees that ask questions that reach out before and after workshops will always get more out of their training experience those that do the bare minimum on pre work lack engagement and run out right at the end of the workshop get far less than their peers most. Instructors are willing to help. Clarify confirm even provide some impromptu coaching to those willing to ask there is nothing lost by asking and much to gain well, the number two way to get more for your next sales training is number to get an accountability partner. It's estimated that just the act of measuring will increase training retention by twenty-five percent having someone who will help you. Hold yourself accountable to the changes you need to make increase your commitment to that change. I find this to be a powerful impact tool in training sessions. I will actually have attendees perr up and set a follow up call with each other make him pull out their phones and schedule it right there on the outlook calendar as a reminder to call their accountability person then. We follow that up with a web session to discuss how those calls went. This double accountability action step ensures at for at least the next three to four weeks. Their new behaviors are a priority for them without this step. The pace of life as an egg sales professional is just too busy and we just slipped right back into our old ways well, the number three way. To get more out of your next training is get rid of your to do list and schedule it on your outlook calendar. This is big. This is a huge way to increase your productivity. You need to have some way of leaving that training session with action items. You will actually implement often go to training get a nice binder or workbook take a lot of notes. In it and then store that binder on a bookshelf never to be opened. Again, knowing this, I implemented a glorified to do list that workshop attendees fill out as they go through the sessions at the end we discuss and reflect on those lists to determine which are most important. Well, this is better than a nice binder on your bookshelf it needed one more step to. Get. Real action. Now we add action stuff to their outlook calendar. Some of the items on the two of us were just too big for one action step gain a ten percent market share and making county is an awfully big item to do in one step but polling on one new prospect in making county next Tuesday is certainly easy to actually do put on your. Outlook calendar and you're most likely to do it. Here are a few additional training elements that I found increase engagement enjoyment, and retention of the material. The first thing that I found useful a pre-test testing often strikes fear in the hearts of many. However, a pre-test is not usually feared as we feel less pressure before we actually go through the training, the added benefit of A. pre-test is to give the attendee an idea of what the course will be about. They are better prepared for the course before they even arrive. The second area that I found helpful in preparing instruction is to do spaced implementation. You really can't cram for long term retention think back to any test you ever crammed for for most that's back to our college days for me. It was my series three and thirty modernity training certification tests I crammed day and night, and I had the help of a great shooter by the way. Thanks Jeremy did I pass of course do I remember it very little the same can be said for sales turning but let me give you one more analogy. Imagine you're wanting to learn how to play the guitar you. Search online and find a course that promises you the ability to play guitar after their eight. Hour workshop now is that realistic course? Not You could jam or cram for eight hours and be a little better that doesn't mean you know how to play a guitar. The same goes for the complicated skills of sailing by spreading the material out over time I found retention of. The training higher among attendees with the increase virtual capabilities of everyone. This is easier than ever. Well, the third way that I think you can add to your sales training program is to implement a follow up. This is one of my favorite components of a great training program doesn't matter if it's as simple as an email, a post test survey, a Webinar or an actual live. Every intense in-person workshop needs to have a follow up within several weeks. Of

Thanks so much for joining us. I'm pleased to join the service and the support that you're offering to a really big community is critical at this time. So thank you thank you. I want to ask you a question that you and I were chatting right before we went live here. You Know I. I've been having a lot of conversations with people and and hearing that you know talking to the great radio. Host Krista Tippett yesterday and she she referred to this species moment. That it's it's in some way is GonNa be a reset on our global reset on the on the way UNMODERN life and I. I just wonder I mean you can make pessimistic price occasions optimistic ones. Where are you in terms of your thinking about how this is GonNa Affect how we live while it is a species moment in that we are having to realize in a deeper way our interconnectedness and it doesn't matter how much you try to isolate yourself in the country or help you know how much money you have heard so forth? It's yes it will affect the vulnerable and the poor in the listen so forth immediately. But it's not gonNA stop there if I understand right. Some of the ministers in Iran already died. It's going to happen to us all and we have to realize this so I believe and hope that we're going to be able to take a pause. The ninety nine percent of us that get through this and hopefully reset our values and say what really matters. How do we care for one another and for the earth? So I'll have an optimistic view at the moment. That could happen and hope that it does. I hope you're right just just for the uninitiated who are unfamiliar with your work before we dive in so the meditation. Can you describe? I know you've been you've been at this meditation thing for an above fifty five years. You describe your background briefly. So people know sure so I trained as a Buddhist monk in monasteries of Thailand and Burma India and also trained Got a PhD in clinical psychology. And I've been bringing eastern and Western psychology together and together with colleagues like Joseph Goldstein. Sharon Salzberg have been some of the group that introduced mindfulness practice to the West. The pioneers who really made a massive contribution to the world. I believe it's an equal none of my meditation career. The fact that you guys went over to Asia learn these practices in cutback came back and copy in a way that made it comprehensible. An attractive to discolor. Yeah we knew it'd transformed us and we hoped it would be a benefit to others in the other thing that we've all done is we've trained a lot of other teachers Which is very satisfying. I'm still doing that on my website. Tat CORNFIELD DOT COM. You can see. There's a global teacher training. We now have almost two thousand people in it who WANNA learn how to offer mindfulness and compassion practices to others. So that it actually. It's not owned by anybody. But it's made available in schools and clinics to wherever people can use it. Yes Betty Great Initiative. Which I know you've run with a partner. Who's another giant in the field of Tatar? Rock of wireless we she. She's been on my podcast love to have her on this on this web web thing. We're doing now so let's say let's out of business if you don't mind would you? Would you guide us in a quick meditation? Yes with pleasure so for those of you who are listening and in this case I imagine not driving. So that's a good thing for this practice Senator yourself make sure you're seated in comfortable and stable way and if you're comfortable with it let your eyes close or if not then be downcast and begin to tune in in this present moment to the experience here now. This is a practice trusting in awareness compassion. And as you tune in you might take a deeper breath or to to release any obvious tension you can and then bring your attention will call it a mindful loving awareness to your body and without any judgment simply notice the state of your body just now. There might be areas of tightness or tension. Warm or cool might be contraction heaviness lightness as you bring line full loving awareness to your body. Allow things to be as they are and bring in quality of kindness or compassion. Your body's doing the best it can at this point loss. Thank you notice that as you hold it with loving awareness in compassion. The fears intentions. That are carried in the body can begin to soften and release yourself now. Shift your attention and bring the same mindful loving awareness to your heart a notice. What feelings are present? Does we get quiet in this time of the pandemic of the Corona Virus. There are naturally so many feelings anxiety or fear grief anticipation and anger feelings of helplessness. All those kind along with many others and sense what's present now in your own heart. Those of course along with care and love and bring the spirit of compassion and loving awareness as if you could hold a frightened child to hold all the emotions that are present and notice what happens when you bring a loving and compassionate awareness to all the feelings that our press like the body. They begin to soften and there comes in status of greater peace instability and gradually. You can begin to sense of trust in awareness that you are the awareness knowing what's happening in your body in your heart in your mind and you can trust the awareness itself. It's field of mindful. Loving awareness and compassion is big enough to hold all of the experiences that you can hold these with a steadiness com anna kinder compassionate and generous spirit you're accessing a greater inner strength beyond the feelings and thoughts and sensations in the body. You can thank your body for trying to protect you. You can thank your heart and your emotions. The fears and confusion. Thank you for trying to protect me. I'm okay for now saying them and hold and compassion. You Trust More. And more deeply your capacity to be present wise unloving strong through it all now skipping the sense of steadiness and trust and awareness itself that your eyes open and know that the same quality of inner strength that we need in this time can be tapped into whenever you need. Thank you very much pleasure. So we've already got some questions coming in from Watching this Lindstrom James William recommended or or us in this time of unsure you can use a mantra or repetitive phrase and there is good in English as they might be in a another language whether it's in Sanskrit or you know Burmese Tibetan And I would the simple mantras that teachers like Zen Master Tick Not Han us on a mantra of light. Calm and steady with each or calm and kind with each breath as a reminder of how we can live Amazon invitation for those very qualities apart. Mind to be pressed on this issue of kindness which you hit in a big way in the guided. Meditation bringing a sort of an a clear. Wariness of whatever's going on US internally but also a sense of warmth. Friendliness you have a student who had become quite close with his. Become one of my teachers were spring. Wash Him who were hoping to get on this livestream in and I did a one on one retreat with her and really the big lesson that I and I've been writing about that retreat we That I learned from that is that you can and I. It really went there again. When I was listening to your meditation at I I have all sorts of things coming up during this time. Some Bearing you know selfish concerns about what's going to happen to me in all of this and and I don't really like that they're coming up. It's just that reminder of you can see clearly and with a sense of friendliness Those voices that might be embarrassing to you. Or they're just trying to protect you maybe unskillful. That's right they are trying to protect you. And you start to see the natural response in our vulnerability that all these things you know. How do I take care of myself? What about my money? What about my children about my own and then you start to trust that awareness can hold your whole humanity. We're in this together and you realize that it's not just do that. Everybody has this time. Fears confusion uncertainty and that that with lot. Mindful loving awareness. We can tolerate all of that and know that that's not who you are. The only thing to add is that I'm we did our own inner practice but this affects those around us as ambassador ticked. Han said When the crowded Vietnamese refugee boats met was storms or pirates. If everyone panicked all would be lost but if even one person on the boat remain centered and calm. It was enough. It showed the way for everyone to survive. And this is a famous passage but it means that intending ourselves and making the space to hold our own vulnerability our fears our follies on our humanity. We begin to trust this deeper capacity to be present for one another and we affect all those around us yet. Story come from several teachers From from one at least one other teacher this week and I it lands well for me. Let me just see if I can sneak in a few more questions from our viewers. Audrey asks how do we handle our fear in very scary time when people are telling us? Don't worry it'll be fine..

But of course, the way to find out how they're affecting. You as an individual on your own orbit in your own world is to be familiar with your Natal chart and to understand when the moon is in Capra corn. What's being activated in your chart?

"None of us really liked growing older is possible that scientists will ever be able to slow or stop the aging process. While dime, scientists are trying to learn more about aging to find out whether such things are possible. An international team of researchers reported important breakthrough in two thousand seventeen for the first time ever. They found a human genetic mutation that protects against some of the biological effects of aging by studying an Amish community in Indiana. I'm not surprised that this discovery was made in an Amish group geneticist liked to stood of the Amish because they don't intermarry with outsiders and keep excellent genealogical records. But how do they find the gene? Their research is studied one hundred seventy seven Amish and found forty three with a mutation in a gene called serpine. One people who had this mutation paired with an unlike gene had lower. Levels of diabetes better cardiovascular health and longer Teela Amir's Attila mirror is a region at the end of each chromosome, which protects it from deterioration and shortens with age people with the mutation on average live ten percent longer than those without. Could this help people who aren't looking to have this mutation? Yes, it could. The Amish with the mutation have very low levels of a protein called plasminogen activation inhibitor, which is related to cellular aging. Doctors occurrence testing an oral drug that blocks the same protein to see whether it has the same beneficial effects as the mutation Sean closer to doing something about aging. Then I thought it was this moment of science comes from Indiana University. We're on the web as a moment of science dot org. I'm Don glass and I'm y'all Cassandra.
