America's Children Are Being Developmentally Stunted by Virus Restrictions

"I had dinner and somebody said i a thirteen month year old granddaughter and she is suffering from something called stranger danger which is a psychological problem that children are now experiencing and they were experiencing before but at record rates because of the lockdowns now. The stranger danger syndrome for babies is that they do not want to be held. They do not want to be around other people. It's called stranger anxiety. Now this this this exists that far before lockdowns but talking to some doctors last evening they are seeing record amounts of young babies and children kobe. Babies they're calling them that are having difficulty interacting with other children because they've been quarantined forcibly masked and their entire childhood development has been stunted. Now there's been a lot of research and a lot of scholarship and study in the power of the first eighteen months of how it could impact the rest of a child's life and especially from eighteen months to five years masking children forcibly we'll have long term effects socially spiritually and psychologically for a virus that does not pose a significant risk of killing them.

A Look Into the Childhood of Convicted Killer Christopher Vaughn

"During his trial. Christopher vaughn was portrayed by the prosecution as a fairly monstrous person a selfish emotionless man who thought nothing of murdering his wife and three children but that depiction is at odds with the chris the people closest to him claim to know as we start to unpack this case. It's important to understand who von was according to those who have known him for life for more than thirty years before christopher vaughn was a headline villain and later convicted killer. He was a son and a brother. The eldest of three chris's creative minds set him apart early on. Here's his brother eric. The younger by thirteen months. I am definitely a middle child. Which in my near my definition is theater and the the mood lifter. Chris is always been having a head of iraq. he's the brains of the three of us. It's helped little brother older but he would always be curious on technologies. And i took apart. My parents can pick first computer and ended up blowing which was not a good deal He was always curious as to how things work. And stuff like that being. So close in age eric in chris were excited about the prospect of having a younger sibling but only a brother. Here's their dad. Pierre there was a tie in to that when we were living in indiana out gail was pregnant. Bad boys huddled in a room for all morning and they come out. They told gail they said yeah. We decided you need to have another boy because we really don't want a girl if we have girl will have centreback three and four years old so that was pretty cute

What did the pandemic do to our social media use?

"I begin with a confession. I love social media especially twitter. I spend a ton of time on it. It has brought me great joy and new friendships and all of the stuff that goes into funding requests. And ipo's when these companies are trying to make some cash and during the pandemic. I've spent even more time on twitter. Obviously a now. I kind of hate it. I love and respect the doctors and reporters who tweet out. Vital information on cove nineteen everyday. I hate that. I know exactly when every day they'll do that and that i will see it and i will feel a little bit worse. I love our listeners. Who respond to us. Thoughtfully to talk about our episodes. Were our guests or why. My delivery is so slow but also i just cannot deal anymore with the people in our mentions who don't even believe the pandemic exists. All of that is a long way to say that today. I hate twitter. But ask me tomorrow and i am sure there is a social media platform that you feel not exact way about over the last year for obvious reasons spending the past thirteen months and counting without real in-person friends. Social media has been a lifeline for millions of us being where we go to commiserate to mourn to be scared but also to celebrate every little victory and that experience has put a magnifying glass on social media the benefits greater than we might have thought the annoyances the hate even more so so what has our time on social media this year done to us. How has the past year changed our experience with these platforms. Is it now a more vital tool and even more racist hellscape is it a virtual community or is it where we go to stand in judgment on one another. And why is tick tock the only one of these platforms.

Are Markets Complacent on COVID-19?

"This is spring break in south florida. People packing the streets things getting so out of hand. Miami beach declaring a state of emergency enforcing curfews and restrictions to limit the partying and crowds. All this as cova cases are back on the rise in more than half of the country. Twenty seven states reporting a jump in new case counts new jersey causing any further reopenings and over in europe. Germany and england extending their lockdowns poland parts of france other european countries are introducing new measures to curb the outbreak. So the question tonight is the market ignoring covid risks. Taking its eye off the ball. Just plano getting too bullish guy. What do you say obviously hailed the we everything through the prism of the market right. So i it's important. Make it clear that we don't want to see anybody getting sick. We understand what's happened over the last few. I think it's important to say that people can slice and dice. These are comments however they want with that said in a perverse way. I think this actually might be bullish for the market. Why because maybe it will slow down the move in bond yields maybe people will reinforce your belief that the fed is going to be there regardless and by the way we've been through this before in the markets learn how to deal with it so of all the things that i'm concerned about in the market and they're many this isn't at the top of my list and it clearly isn't it. The market's either being that the vix closed below nineteen today for the first time in probably thirteen months. Yeah timmy brought up the vix beam below twenty earlier on a call today. Why just extraordinary so a year ago. And we're going to do all these look backs and we're gonna have a great segment on what you'd want to invest in a year later but you know the vix was seventy five a year ago today and guys bringing up great points about fear. His is inspired unprecedent policy response and so the fear of removing unprecedented policy responses. What had the market's having anxiety. What gives me anxiety is that you get to a place where the the the year of mulligans that we had which was then on twenty twenty and twenty twenty. One earnings is something that you're going to have to address by the time we get to mid year and i think we will have to unless you slow down the pace so everything guide caveated this. We care about the world's health a lot more that we care about the stock market. I do think you have a case here where the market is is going to be fine with bond yields coming down. Because there's there's more fear of less opening. And i think unfortunately that's just the market. We're in but again i. I am not worried about the environment if anything i do see seven percent. Gdp growth and a labor market. That's four and a half percent. Those are the feds numbers by the end of this year. That's going to be very very strong backdrop to me for stocks. Let's just hope.

Roger Federer's back, briefly

"Hello folks woke until mid week tennis. Podcast a podcast. That was very nearly recorded on wednesday evening. Following roger federer's first much back after fourteen month hiatus at three win over. Brit dan evans. How different might that. Podcast have sounded. Had it been recorded yesterday versus being recorded now of to his three-set loss to nikoloz bassett villi. That is the punchy question that i put to you. David law and matt. Roberts whoever wants to take it. I think i should say that. It's because of matt. Roberts said we're recording it now and not if i had my way which was last night because i was a bit ivory excited to just get chatted. We've been so overexcited that it would now be out of date. How how different need. I think what i'm getting at is different. Do we feel about wherever resort. And what he's capable of off the two matches than we did after one arm in a similar place but matt watched both matches more closely. So i'm going to defer to matt. Hospital pass might enjoy. I think yesterday we would have been extremely positive about federer. And i think today we probably should still be positive about federal because federer is being positive about federal and i think we should take him at his word and agree that this has been a good week for him. He gained the matches that he wanted. He felt pretty good on the court. Arise maybe didn't always align with that viewpoint today There was there was a moment in his match today where his movement did really stop almost altogether and it was quite difficult to watch at times. But i think that's a difficult thing to do to have tempered. Expectations of roger federer. But it's absolutely what we need to have and he's upbeat. He said he's already over. It flew into his press conference after the loss. Today said he's over. It is positive generally and therefore i think we probably should be as well but we certainly have a lot more data to go on now that we've seen him play this match as opposed to just one match against evans because they two totally different matches for him and we'll talk about both of them he. He was asked Today as he said my in that very immediate post loss press conference i how. How long will this take to get over this loss. Read compared to previous losses similar level tournaments similar. Sages at already over. It sounding like you know when you've been broken up with an ally. I'm completely fine. I'm completely fine. he was. He wasn't right for me anyway. I never wanted to win this tournament. It wasn't it wasn't dubai is going to be better in dubai but and yet it also as you say. We should believe him me. You know what. I d believe him i he. We should probably feel fine about it could kiss. He feels fine about it. David yeah a. I would say that occasionally impress coinc- he said everything's fine and then isn't fine line a back problem or something like that. But i thought when he came out yesterday and play his match against down evans that he started off playing very carefully moving very carefully. He wasn't explosive he was he was balanced. He was good. He looked serene the way often does and he was striking the ball very well but i just felt like he was inevitably be very careful. And that changes. The match tone in evans pushed him in. They played they played good close competitive match But and at the end federal showing some real explosive tennis in some and he was getting Any any finished with a winning. So i thought that was really really good but there was a euphoria about him yesterday. Which was all build apple. High pulled a chats. He was excited. Because he's he's like a little kid in a sweetshop isn't even. He's playing tennis and when the is on him he loves it. He loves it. He's always has but today. I mean i didn't see all of the match because i was watching. Arena against gubbay mcgruder. And i left federal watch to you both but then when that finished i turned over and i was less alarmed than i thought i would be given what i was reading on twitter. And what what i was just hearing generally because i think he was fife on down listening in the second set maybe even lose that set six one zero six to eight yeah and it was definitely the latter stages if that second set would definitely sort of hidden hope connor by a around about that time. I did actually have a little chat. we don evans on. What's up. 'cause he was watching the match he was watching the match back and he said of course he's of course he's naked and we play hard much the night before and he's he's any she referenced the kind of all of the check before the match and before the tournament ties you out and you hit you hit a bit of a wall in and it's not really surprising. The blacks thirty nine. He's going to be forty later this year. He's hasn't played for thirteen months. And now he's played six sets in twenty four

Deciding When/If To Have A Baby

"Let's start with writer and journalist nell brazelle. She's the author of the new book. The panic years. This isn't enough to me of my own panic is we asked her to read a passage from it because it sums up so much for those book. She says isn't a guide. Do finding the right partner or how to get pregnant or the best way to raise a child. It's about what happens. When you're heading towards the grownup cutlery and matching sheets have adult life and wondering if you should have a baby if you only want one because you brought up to one or if you've ever been able to have one if you tried is trying to establish a career before you disappear into maternity. Leave is about wanting stability. While your friendship groups splinters into the parents and the not parents. It's not just looking for a boyfriend or girlfriend potential parent for your theoretical child. It's about fertility. Gender inequality and social stigma is about. Why you find yourself doing the panicked math. The diff you meet someone and you date for a year and if it takes two years to get pregnant but if you were to aim for this job if you're period started at thirteen months eggs ran out at forty until suddenly. You're not doing math anymore. But asking something bold and blank and unending who am i and what do i want from life so all of that is take away one. Ask yourself what you really want. Inner book for zell explores the questions. She says that she and many other people especially women have asked themselves while making this crucial life decision. Brazil says you have to start by digging deep into your feelings to be absolutely honest about what you want in. The world is terrifying. Because you open yourself to the disappointment that you're not gonna get it and david men who describes herself as a motherhood clarity mentor and is a licensed marriage and family therapist says that process can leave people feeling muddled as they tried to think and feel their way through. I think the biggest obstacle for everyone no matter their circumstance is that when they're trying figure out what they want with their desire is about becoming a parent and what they're going to do about it at the same time. It creates gridlock in their mind. Now for says working through. That gridlock is uncomfortable but necessary. If you want to see if you admit to someone that you that there is something that is burningly important. You then have to confront the fact that not getting it will make you desperately sad bont without admitting what you want how on earth you ever gonna get it. And how is anyone else ever going to help you achieve.

Business leaders of all kinds, and that is because of the gas. These are folks who have expertise in particular areas of business and they join me for a conversation where they share that expertise with all of you. Today is no different. My guest today is Chris O.. Rien. Iger Chris Started Small Business Silver lining with a mission to help small businesses become more profitable and sustainable. She created the slap methodology, the silver lining action plan a thirteen month growth program, which is technology enabled data driven and based in behavior change science. Helping Small Business Owners developed the right habits and take the right actions to grow their business. Just regularly writes speaks and advises on small businesses. Thanks so much for joining me today. Christa. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so glad to be here. I am thrilled to have you here and we're going to be talking about. Selling through this whole Cova pandemic fan. which I think is something. So many small business owners are struggling with or have been struggling with of the past couple of months. And my first question for you is, would you talk some about? selling in a recession. People I think are afraid to sell Wen bad times but but I mean I think you believe it's possible. I. Believe it's possible. But what does that? What do you think? What does that? What like? Yeah listen I think. So, a couple of things number one is. It can't be sort of overstated how significant the disruption has been in twenty twenty for small business owners. I. Mean You if you're a small business owner listening and you feel tired and exhausted and worried. You know you're. Not Alone and this has been a really hard year. So you know I just you know I always wanted knowledge sort of the emotional reality of this moment because for many people are self included, right? You see your revenue go down a significant amount literally overnight no doing of your own and it's ridiculously stressful and so that is that is very real and we see that in. Almost all of our customers now with also true the silver lining. No Pun intended. Is that you know yes, we've watched all of our small businesses, their revenue go down things have gotten hard. It's also true that not one of our small businesses has out of business and the reason I think that's true. I is three things and this this goes to answer your question Diane the first. Is having a resilient mindset and we can talk about this more. But I in before Cova I talked a lot about mindset and how I thought the trick to sales and the trick to revenue really started with mindset. And I see that you know a million times more today than I. Did you know six months ago and so strong mindset staying positive? Not becoming a victim to the moment. But you know staying in control seeing all of this crisis as both risk and opportunity, and just choosing to believe that we will be okay you know and again there's a million things we could say about that. But that's number one and number two is getting really creative and adaptable. Now creative and adaptable does not mean that we start you know running around like chickens with their heads cut off. And getting really unfocused and getting you know really chaotic and throwing out what we originally did and try to start something brand new. But it means that there is always a new way to do what we do. There is always a new way to innovate. Even in my business journey, we used to be sort of consulting and training business and we've completely innovated how we do what we do, and now you know were software as a service company. But what we do have ultimately stayed the same and who serve stayed the same. But how we do it has innovated entirely, and so this is a moment where. Business, owners have an opportunity not to throw out what they do and not to throat who they do it for, but to actually get creative into innovate how they do what they do and the business owners that is seized sort of succeeding the most haven't been resistant to that adjustment but have releasing this as a moment to innovate to change and to ask the right questions of innovation, right not innovate. For. The sake of throwing everything they've built a way but innovate so that they can do what they do better in a way that really meets the times and then the third thing and it goes of counter to what our knee reaction is. Right when when we feel an element of scarcity or when we feel an elementary anxiety tend to think that the way we're gonNA generate more revenue is to. Sort of do anything to anyone rights, I will sell anything to anyone who will buy for me. You know anything's possible and we have tons of data and tons of proof. That's not true that in fact, the people who stay focused stay niche at but go really deep instead of really wide, those ones actually sell the most. So that's a long way to answer the question, but the quick answer is. I think there's a ton of opportunity right now I think business owners can make it through this right now but I think we need to be really intentional about being keeping our mindset strong. Being incredibly creative, adoptive, and sort of innovative around how we do what we do and staying focused and going deep, not wide and how we serve our customers. But at when we do those things for sure I, do believe we can get through this.

"Cases every day I initially I thought well you know maybe I would give a cost to the benefit of the doubt on that because it is true you have to evaluate every case on its merits these cases are difficult and typically victims don't want to go forward they don't want to have a trial they will often change their mind changed their testimony even go into hiding and disappear they are very difficult cases and if that's what happened here at a cost to refute everything and said look the best we can do is this thirteen month I state court soliciting prostitution charge you know I might give that the benefit of the doubt except the victims themselves through their attorneys have been saying ever since that time that it's not true that there were multiple victims who did want to go to trial who didn't want to press forward who were not consulted even though federal law requires them to be consulted in the judge's just world that that their rights were not enforced so I'm going to listen to the voices of those victims over Costa and assume that they're telling the truth and that there were people willing to go forward and they were just all swept under the rug so Costa rather amp scene on Tuesday in court and has pleaded not guilty it I mean I suppose he thinks that he's already paid for his crimes ten years ago well you might think that but he clearly has not because he's not been convicted of sex trafficking and by the way I have several civil cases right now sex trafficking one of them against New York photographer Bruce Weber and sex trafficking is a very broad lots a good life for victims on both the criminal in the civil side of consent is not a defense for example if you lower somebody for commercial sex which is basically any kind of money or thing of value like a job is being offered in U. lore somebody does sexual six situation that sex trafficking and when it comes to girls under the age of eighteen of course consent is not a defense either so I hope that victims will continue to reach out I reach out to the prosecutors the F. B. I. reach out to private lawyers like me find out what your rights are this is the time to stand up and to stand with your sisters who are brave enough to do this and really try to get some justice and accountability which is long overdue for this billionaire so in terms of from what she stands accused often the charges facing him I'm assuming it includes some you know not just statutory rape because we're talking about miners and and strive sexual abuse but also as you said the trafficking charge because an inch and he basically recruited his victims to get more get him access to more underage girls he was not only paying these underage some of them underage girls have sex with him as the allegation stand but also allegedly paying them to bring him of the young girls and that's the way the trafficking comes in that's this conspiracy so he's only been I charged with two counts sex trafficking and conspiracy he has not been charged with statutory rape because that's not a federal crime so are so while it is earth can be very Byzantine confusing why we have federal and state law and you know sometimes I think we should just have one body a lot but this is what we have in this is what we're working with but he's charged with sex trafficking you know on Monday hundreds of photos nude and semi nude under age girls were found in his home and what my Eckstine accuser clients have been saying to me is she I hope I'm not in those photos Lisa can we find out if I'm in those photos and I'm saying why can't he be charged with possessing child **** because that's clearly illegal under both federal and state law so I'm hoping that prosecutors now that they have this additional evidence this disgusting evidence they're also going to bring additional charges against him attorney Lisa bloom specializes in bringing sexual harassment and assault cases she spoke with an all the call hot car on the rising up with some knowledge show appeals court threw out one of three lawsuits accusing president trump of illegally profiting off the presidency there was a luxury Washington DC hotel ending trump a significant legal victory today a three judge panel of the fourth US circuit court of appeals unanimously overturned the ruling of a federal judge in Maryland he said the lawsuit could move forward the state of Maryland and the district of Columbia student twenty seventeen claiming trump violated the emoluments clause of the constitution by accepting profits through foreign and domestic officials to stay at the trump international hotel a clause prohibits federal officials from accepting benefits from foreign or state governments without congressional approval a public relations firm working for Saudi Arabia had spent nearly two hundred and seventy thousand dollars on food in rooms the Philippines and Kuwaiti embassies have also held parties there the fourth circuit court found Maryland and DC lacked standing to pursue their claims against the president he heralded the decision in a tweet quote were just out that I want a big part of the deep state and Democrat induced witch hunt unquote trump tweeted he doesn't make money but loses a fortune by serving as president his legal team argued Maryland Attorney General Brian frost and district of Columbia Attorney General Carl Racine both Democrats lacked authority to sue the president in his official capacity I also argue the emoluments clause only bars compensation made in connection with services provided in his official capacity Racine and fry said in a joint statement they would not abandon their efforts a similar case brought by nearly two hundred congressional Democrats in the district of Columbia's federal court also deals with the idea trump is using the presidency for his profit but that case is uniquely different not the Congress is specifically mentioned in the emoluments clause.

Biggest mistake I've made, I would say is. amid a lot of good decisions prefaced by saying there's an honor to admitting mistakes because you learned some then yes absolutely stake i made was probably not starting business before i did i had good timing but ultimately if i was a year ahead i would have been in a better position today Let's say us thinking. itself and that's that's a good that's a good trait one could say dropped out my undergrad college that's that's arguably mistake if i was looking to go get a job at another company but you never know because look what happened here you are crazy social media right now misuse and how important is social media personally ton yeah Pursues.

There is a t live. So they Australian banking quarry recommends against structural separation. Yes. So this is in reference to misconduct cases. Twenty four cases to regulators that have been referred the Australian government is saying it supports all seventy six recommendations. I mean, it's it's interesting. How much of an upheaval this is because it's the biggest in decades. This wide-ranging inquiry intimacy conduct and basically how the financial industry should pay for what they've done wrong. I mean, this report was highly anticipated and the speculation was that they would be looking at changes for compensation, maybe change, some of the lending standards.

"I know. Perfect. Through the cracks good. That's good. That's the truth. You do fall off the wagon, especially the first three months is the Tahoe. Yeah. That's the toughest. Because you suck it budgeting when you first start. Yeah. And it just takes a little while to get to get going. And and to do that the good news is you have you actually when you had no plan. There's no way to know if you're off the plane. Yeah. We thought we were doing good because we really we paid off our credit card every month. And we're like, oh, that's that's the goal. Let's do every month. So you don't get fees and things like that. But that's not the goal anymore. Nicer. So you get your twenty four and twenty seventy six twenty four and twenty six and while you're working on this for the last year and a half, fourteen months. Thirteen months are you hearing these? Reports in the news and so forth about millennials and how they're stuck and they're clueless. And the world is us against them and their dumb because you guys are yet. Another example, I'm eight millennials like y'all all the time that are just completely rose. And d do you does that offend you? Or do you just do you look at your friends and go, well, that's them. There really are that way. Or I mean, do, you know a bunch of others like you because I see people just like y'all all the time. It's crazy. How many people you look around? And you see them living paycheck to paycheck. But we do have a good sport support behind us, and our our cheerleaders who are your biggest cheerleader. I'd say probably my are probably my family. My some of my brothers. Follow your plan while you're playing. So they were always there behind us. My family supported us to. But they're not really the Dave Ramsey fans. They don't get it. But understand when we were saying we're not going out to dinner because it's a tradition Saturday nights. I've gone to dinner with my family and therefore while we weren't doing things like that. And they didn't quite get it. They do now. Well, now, you're there can do whatever. So that that's perfect. Yeah. Well, I guess what I'm asking is as rockstar millennials. Are you not a little bit insulted by people saying that your whole generation is like stupid or something? I mean because you're not a lot of times being in sales. I go door to door. So I'll walk into people's houses. And they'll just look at me. Now like, you don't know what you're talking about. You're only twenty four or things like that or and it's kind of insulting. Because just because we're young doesn't mean we don't know what we're doing. And doesn't mean we're not motivated to learn and try harder. So some people will some people our age won't take the extra effort to make things nicer work hard. But we do. So I guess I maybe I'm just I think I've got a skewed view on this because it's like the vast majority of the millennials I'm meter like you guys, and you all the news reports are all participation trophy idiots. Yeah. I know they're out there somewhere.
