Prophet Mike Thompson: The Cure for the Lawlessness Is the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit
"I want my audience to be as encouraged as have been that in the midst of this darkness. God says hold on. I'm not done with america because many people that seem to think it's over when the end times it's over you know rates to run into the caves but that's not what god has been saying to. You know others evil in the world there always has been always will be until the second coming of the lord. Jesus christ i mean we understand those things but there is victory also in the bible it talks about in the last days their scriptures in the new testament where the apostle paul particularly was talking about in the last days and he explains how that there would be all this kind of evil and lawlessness. Lawlessness is a good word. Apostle paul love to talk about lawlessness. He talked about this present evil age and connected that with lawlessness. How that the entire mass of human thinking devoid of the reality and the truth of god and the revelation of the holy spirit in our life produces a mindset in humanity to where they they don't believe in god and not follow after the morals of god and thereby there's a lawlessness that occurs spiritual lawlessness. We've seen recently. A lot of physical lawlessness legal lawlessness. If you will and But the holy spirit also inspired in the book of acts where on the day of pentecost when the holy spirit came and he moved in any birth the church and then they questioned the people around the heard him speaking tongues. They saw the tong tongues of fire on the people's heads it all that was going. They were praising god they were magnifying. God in people that were watching questioned that and so the first great sherman there where peter said that this is that that joel prophesy and he said in the last day jobs i will pour out of my spirit. So if the bible at the new testament says in the last days there will be lawlessness. It also says in the last days. I will pour out of my spirit. I'm saying that the antidote that you're for the lawlessness is the outpouring of the holy spirit
Alfresco Dining Tips From Outdoorsy Diva Lauren Gay
"Let's talk about the food. Let's start with camping. When the weather cools down this is floridians. Time to get out there. So what would you take on a camping trip today. Not cold cuts and pb and j. I'm guessing no no no like so for me. I beat the go-to as those foil. Packet mills that you can kind of prep beforehand and just keep them in your cooler on ice so you can take stuff like shrimp and potatoes with some veggies and season it and have it and you're full packet in. Just throw that puppy on the grill. And your any eat you can use Baked potatoes and stuff from with whatever it is. You like you can eat regular potatoes. Sweet potatoes you can even do like breakfast type of things like with frozen hash browns and your sausage and cheese and all that stuff and prep it and just have it. Ready to go in a foil packet. That's probably the easiest way if you don't wanna like carry a skillet or something like that even just heat up the foil packet and boom like whatever you could imagine that you could do like in a dish like in a in a casserole dish or something you can do it in the packet. I never really thought about that. My imagination is kind of running wild. Now what if you do want to carry a skillet. What are some tools or utensils that you maybe would bring along you. Did i mean you you wanna use something like a cast iron skillet. You don't wanna go putting your you know the that ceramic type stuff on like an open flame so you wanna use something. That's girl friendly on is the biggest thing you want to make. Sure you had your utensils like your spatula. Your tongs on bring your seasoning things like that. I mean it's is nothing to deep is just you know you have to remember if you're camping where you're just driving and you can keep up in the car. Then that's cool. That's great if it's a situation where you're backpacking and you've got a bit of a hike to get to your site.

"Tong for Marketplace. I know Sometimes you wake up, you have to know right then And there What's going on in business and the economy? Check out the marketplace. Morning report. David Brancaccio in the game, getting out of bed figuring out what's going on and telling you about it, Check it out. We are giver take six months into the Biden administration as good a moment as any really to check in on where some of the promises that candidate Biden made. Stand now that he's got the job. What about, say healthcare? As with many other things, it is not just Republicans that Mr Biden has to placate more than 150 House Democrats right with a letter calling on the president. To do more on one part of the health care system in particular expanding access to Medicare. As marketplace accumulate Adams reports in President Biden's budget proposal he calls for lowering the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 60. And there's research explaining why many advocates see that as a good idea. Joe Strayger is a professor at Stanford School of Medicine and a surgeon and as a surgeon, I noticed in my practice that there was a there seemed to be a sudden rise in the number of lung cancers. I was treating in patients who had just turned 65. He asked around, and his colleagues saw the same thing. Normal rates at age 64 66, but twice as many lung cancer treatments at 65. There's no biological explanation for why there would be that that kind of jump. But as Schrager found in a research paper he co authored with colleagues There is an economic explanation. People were waiting for treatment until they were eligible for Medicare. Schrager says Lowering the eligibility age could save lives. Because that period of time in your early sixties I think it's a window. Where are sort of work. Associate assurance system tends to fail a lot of people, and it's the same window when illnesses that are life threatening to become more and more common. And conditions that aren't life threatening as well. Judy Stein runs the center for Medicare advocacy. Her group works with clients to ensure they receive Medicare benefits. And they come to Medicare. Uh, sicker, more vulnerable than they might had. The there've been adequate coverage before they came onto Medicare. Lowering the eligibility age may sound simple, but like anything else involving health care in this country, it isn't for example, providers generally get paid less under Medicare than they would from an employer plan or private insurance plan. Tricia Neuman is a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation. And so I think if this proposal were to move forward in game steam It would not be a surprise to see serious opposition from the hospital industry and other health care providers. Having more people on Medicare would also shift the cost burden of ensuring them from employers to the government. Mirian logos in teaches health policy at Columbia University. Employers, depending on the generosity of the benefits package may see their employees choosing to ensure themselves through the public system that would be a real win for small businesses. Of course, all this depends on the details of any eventual plan, which would still need congressional approval. I think that there's there's a degree of pessimism around whether this will go forward, and that's up to the political process. And the Biden administration is already in a lot of tough political negotiations at the moment in Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams for Marketplace. Coming up. A real good week can clean out.

Five days after the colonial pipeline resumed operations after a ransomware hack forced shutdown tomorrow congress will launch a pipeline security bill to prevent future outages. But critics say. It's still missing. Some major safeguards marketplace's scott. Tong kicks us off when something goes wrong with the pipeline like the colonial pipeline hack companies. Do not have to tell the government electricity companies to and if there's a plane incident airlines have to open up the government. Investigators says rob kentucky is a former top cybersecurity as to president obama. They will be doing everything they could to understand what happened. And then they would rapidly sharing that information with other airlines so those airlines could prevent the same thing from happening to that. That's not at all what's happening with this pipeline incident instead. It's a volunteer system of protecting data and sharing information. There are no government mandates or fines just recommendations in the bill in congress would keep it that way thing is a recent survey of pipeline companies. Found that just eight percent actively share information with the rest of the industry and the government that's a woefully low number indie lee at the law firm jones walker. Did this survey.

How Fashion Can Leverage the Audio Appeal of Clubhouse
"Earlier this year. Silicon valley became obsessed with a new app called clubhouse and audio bay social network where people can spontaneously jump into different chat rooms to together launched amid the pandemic since day one. The app has attracted the kind of funding controversy and hype that's ruffled feathers and made headlines. The social audio space is booming. Investors are piling in and recently twitter revealed that it's launching. Its own take on social audio space. That's currently being dominated by clubhouse one of is super users is none other than virgil abloh. Louis vuitton men's artistic director and creative director of off. White virgil joins us at voices twenty today from chicago alongside clubhouse founder paul davidson who is in san francisco. Welcome to you both. Thank you so much. Glad to be here liquors lurk whereas going and run. Get to see you again. Virgil i'm gonna. I'm gonna start with paul. Because i think everyone in the silicon valley world has heard of clubhouse but you know there are people watching who may not yet have understood what this is. So in the first instance. I'm gonna ask you the question you know. Why do we need another social media. What is it that clubhouse offers to the world. That isn't already out there. Yeah happy but that one slight correction the clubhouse house with my friend row on Clubhouse it's a new type of social network. That's based on voice where people around the world come together to talk. Listen and learn from each other about topics ranging from fashion to retail music and sports and social justice. It's sort of like hallways of this conference anywhere where it's all on your phone. There's no video but you can. You can reconnect with people you can learn or you can just be applying the wall and i think that connection is an inherently human thing. We're wired to connect invoice is a very different medium. We've seen it grow recently because of things like airpods and smart speakers an in-car integrations of this technology. But but it's it's in some ways the oldest medium in the world right. We were talking long before we were writing or taking photos or shooting videos but in the world of social media. It's a new thing and we find that allows people to connect in a different way you have all of the fidelity and authenticity and bids an asks an emotion. But you don't have any of things zaidi of video worrying about what you look like. Or how messy your houses and so it creates a different type of experience that is more about connecting with people in and having conversations than about getting likes or follows or projecting a certain view of yourself to the world. So we think it's a pretty different experience in what's out there right now. Burs let me let me turn to you. Because as i mentioned in the intro you've become a clubhouse super user and they might conversations of the. I know you're a busy guy. We were talking michael wolff earlier today. Who says like the average person is spending thirteen hours a day on their technology devices. You know why are you carving out time and you're very busy schedule to use clubhouse what do you get out of clubhouse. That's different from what you can get elsewhere. It's one of those things where i rationalize it like this. I'm in the design community. Which basically means that. I'm a part of the uber. Small percentage of people that get to dictate web pants. You wear next year. Look like you know like. I have an opinion. I'm in a part of a collective that decides. What the in like a trend for your car or your your interior of your home. They look like you know that's to me. Take that as a huge responsibility. This is like shelving away all the things like the fun side of the job or something like that. So i think it's a part of my responsibility of my craft to be knowledgeable to know what's going on in the world like if i locked myself in my studio and i sit in a place where i think from my sort of like shielded view of the world. This is what i think. The impact the lives of others. I think that's the wrong path. So when clubhouse comes around which i believe is a is a forward thinking concept from amazing people with great hearts and good vision. Like it's a no brainer. You know. And i project that out and so my friend told me adjust carballo from heist. Nobody was early user of clubhouse and he was like. Hey this is something i know you'd be into. You should try it out. And that's how. I became a user. An i've been a fan of the operation ever since two other quick. Things said that. I might add one. That because it's audio you can multitask and so it takes advantage of a lot of found time. it's not something where you're staring at a screen and just scrolling for hours and doing nothing else. People are using it while. They're walking while they're driving while they're in bed at night while they're folding laundry while they're doing all sorts of other things and the second thing i'd say is a big goal for us is to ensure that when people spend time on clubhouse it is time well-spent where were they can spend spend time on it enclosed the app at the end of the session feeling better than they did when they opened it because they deepen friendships. They've met new people they've learnt. It's a participatory different experience than than sort of scrolling screen purely consuming got it so virgil let me take it back to you for a minute. Your as you said your top designer in the industry now you can dictate what pants or as we'd call trousers in. Hey what you'd wear. Trousers wear next season. But what do you think. Fashion brand louis. Re tong could use or learn from clubhouse. How could fashion brands make use of this tool. They've found different ways to use instagram other other social media apps. But you know what could a fashion brand us clubhouse for you know. This is just something that i was just like reflecting on an essence. Obviously there's this in the fashion industry. There's hyper sort of like attention. Paid towards digital space. You know e commerce web impressions content photos videos data when at the end of the day. You know it's an extreme metric and tool to engage. And i think with the with the advent of clubhouse sort of refocusing on audio. It's it's an interesting case. Study and seeing like making sure that brands have something to say. You know you when you can't escape to creating an image that looks like fashion so then people consume it as fashion or a video. That looks glossy looks like moving. Image of fashion ambience. Like i for one. Think it's a like a new landscape to hear what brand about you know without the use of image or without that the the adjacency to say a product within that image. Like what do you have to say. And that becomes compelling as a fashion industry when we can use our voice to create engagement. Yeah that's that's really interesting because of course it's like second nature for the fashion industry to communicate through imagery. But how does how does a fashion company communicate through sound. I don't know paul if you have anything to add their think it's such an interesting contrast when you're talking about the fashion industry right. I mean extensively. Fashion is visual. It is curated. this is literally the opposite. You can't fake. You can't have a social media manager post the clubhouse right you're talking and the community aspect is a really big part of it. Because it's so participatory in your calling people from the audience here engaging with the people that care about your brand you have people in the industry sourcing creatives for shoots and and and talking about trends in what's happening in the news it's just a. It's a very different experience. So i love the fact that virgil has it enjoyed using the product because on its surface that contrast is just so fascinating to me like the division curated versus the the raw and intimate. Yeah all all the conversations that i have hosted or been part of on clubhouse related to fashion imron in a weird way. Have been more in depth than than interviews or sort of regular format sort of media. You know because the audience is getting to hear what they can't see on instagram too. Many characters to type. Obviously none of us are person like me. I'm not media trained to be able to like sound by. Have my ideas go through instagram. So that people exactly get the nuance and a medium like like clubhouse is where as a designer i can talk about the inspiration that i only usually talk about press
Trump administration to auction oil drilling rights in all federal lands of ANWR coastal plain
"After decades of debate the trump administration next week is planning to auction off drilling rights in alaska. More specifically alaska's national wildlife refuge those against drilling say they want to protect the land which is home to some two hundred and fifty animal species including caribous and wolverines. But here's what you may find surprising. And this long-awaited bidding process turns out. There's not a lot of interest. Here's marketplace's scott tong. A lot of things were in fashion in the mid eighties. Big hair fanny packs and oil giants wanting to drill in alaska. National wildlife refuge an. I'll have mostly gone out of style. Tim brasher co publishes the alaska economic report. One thing that is really interesting. A lot of us in alaska who follow these things is how embitterment the major oil companies have been an war for years. That could be because they sense. The toxic politics decades of environmental opposition media risk of lawsuits against oil companies. Considering in war plus corporate reputational risk readdress and drilling in remote alaska is not cheap. Warns energy and lawyer. David hayes a former top official at the interior department. The price of oil is not high. The expense of drilling at alaska is high. Meanwhile there are many places in the world that are much cheaper to drill for oil than the alaskan arctic. So most if not all oil giants are expected to sit out the bidding which would mean lowest prices in measly royalties for the government. Now at exactly what. Congress predicted three years ago. When an authorized leasing assumed a billion dollars in royalties the bids that are put in are going to be nowhere near what congress said would occur. Low bids mean drilling rights could go for bargain. Prices though and radner at the alaska economic report predicts some interest perhaps among state and local players. The geology does look very good and even given all the bad pr and the politics. I just can't imagine that somebody maybe just individuals aren't going to submit bids perhaps anticipating lukewarm interest alaska state development commission. Just got the okay to itself to make a grab for potentially valuable land and eventually flip it or partner with oil. Companies deadline for bids came yesterday and wednesday. They'll be unsealed

AGs' Lawsuit Accuses Facebook Of Gobbling Up Competitive Threats
"Facebook crushes the competition. That's one of those cliches. We used to talk about. Big successful. Companies is facebook crushing the competition. Legally or illegally. That's something the courts will decide. The federal trade commission and attorneys general from across the country are suing facebook. They say the company eliminated competition by either buying other companies or making it impossible for them to succeed connecticut. Attorney general william. Tong is one of the forty eight eight involved in the suit. Thank you sir for being here. Good morning oil. Facebook has been a dominant company. Four years now. Why filing this lawsuit right now. you don't facebook has expensive and power and what is done without our and its market dominance is. It's it's engaged in a program of what we call by in berry where they either by their competitors or if they don't play ball and sell they crushed their competitors and what they've done is they've crushed any threat to their business and their market domination. They've eliminated choice for consumers and they beat third party app developers and software developers into submission. And your argument is that's illegal. That's not just being smart competitive business. No it's not just being smart when you're a business like facebook and you essentially dominate an entire field that means so much to people today particularly in a global pandemic in public health when we rely so much on technology to stay in touch with our friends. Our family to do business to sell products to advertise Social media's become central really in our lives and when you're the dominant market player You have an obligation not to abuse that power and what a facebook has done. It's it has abused. Its market power to keep competitors out of the marketplace and the leverage that market power to prejudice. Anybody who doesn't play by facebook's rules okay but how have users been hurt by what you're alleging. Facebook has done the ordinary people of connecticut. How are they getting hurt here. So they really don't have any choice. They because facebook not only is the dominant player in its own right through facebook but because they bought instagram Which targets a younger generation including my kids and whatsapp. Widely globally used social messaging And also a direct peer to peer messaging app. Because they've done that. You really have very limited options and so you don't have a choice on where you go to For social media number one or two by products for example on on facebook facebook marketplace. And if you're a small business in connecticut Or even a bigger business and you want advertisers sell products. You really have to use facebook or one of its companion products so you don't have any choice because of their facebook argues that there is competition and i will tell you the young people in my life that the teens the tweens. They don't care about facebook at all. They're all on tiktok. Is it possible that in five ten years facebook will be kind of irrelevant or at least not the behemoth is now and that this is just sort of panicking over something that companies become dominant for a few years and they tend to fade know. Our view is Unless we do something. That won't be the case because facebook has frankly so much money and so much market power and that's why they're buyer berry strategy so successful because they can go and pay outside prices for instagram and whatsapp and essentially stifled competition. That way so no. We think that Unless the court takes action and unless the forty eight states plus the ftc are successful. Facebook will continue to dominate. The space facebook's general counsel makes an interesting argument noting that facebook bought instagram in two thousand and twelve and bought whatsapp a few years later and federal regulators said that was fine and now basically. They're going back on what they said. What do you think about that argument. Well we certainly weren't part of that determination and we look forward over the next two years to more robust antitrust enforcement enforcement of our nations and our states antitrust laws and the states the forty eight of us have done our own investigation and now in concert with the federal trade commission have determined that facebook is acting illegally. Okay connecticut attorney general william tom. Thanks so much for your time today. We appreciate it. Thank you well.

"Were people striving to be more capable in their daily life and be able to defend themselves and have a goal of being you know in the defense community and be strong people and I. Think you know we're we're in a very scary time and fear is nothing to play with, and I think the radical left dominates the party right now, and I think that always tends to backfire because it's almost like going off a cliff, right? Right like it goes so far that even your base, your middle of the road can identify what you are anymore, and I think you're GonNa see that play out because you have too many people that are what I call You know commonsense thinkers out there they inject sense into their daily life and common sense right now would dictate law enforcement's in full retreat and it's not their fault they're being forced into retreat they're being told.

Right. I think that it's gone too far out. It's gone too far radical, and we're starting to see that in this country is. I feel losing freedom. You know the government tab right now, the federal government resist that. But in society, we see that level whether it's school whether it's your job. I see this because there are so many people from across the country that Messi meet privately because they're scared. Tell me how they were silenced not in jobs. Holiday got punish spider professors.

Like, two hundred miles away from violence or intimidates course you'll have this. So I think owner ordinary citizens are rising up. We'll see. Yeah I just think you know. People at the end of the day, as I said earlier, they think in the middle and they inject common sense, and that's what I think goes on more often than not. As the vote comes around, and at the end of the day, you know I think people do recognize what is You know what's real and what is actually playing out in front of them and I think people see it. I mean the amount of deaths in Chicago, the amount of murders, the amount of turmoil that's going on in some of these states, and you have the mayors in, you have the governor's like, Oh, you know it's a peaceful.

So some Koreans were shocked by reports Thursday that a former secretary of pox it filed a sexual harassment complaint Wednesday against the mayor. Reporters asked Chief of detectives to about the complaint, A CZ many reports have said it has been received in an investigation is underway, he said. But it would be inappropriate to confirm the details here. Mayor Park's family is threatened legal action against anyone who defames him. Some of his supporters. Significant spirit see others sympathize with Secretary Kim Sung Tong, leader of the left leaning Justice Party, spoke to reporters after paying her respects to park. I believe the victim. The accuser may be the one who's in the most pain now, she said. I'd like her to remember above all that she is not responsible for this situation. More than 230,000 people have signed a petition in the president's office website objecting to plans for a five day funeral for park, which they argue would be inappropriate given the allegations.

Ransomware attacks against hospitals are on the rise
"The FBI and Homeland Security warned that Chinese hackers are trying to break into us. Companies and health organizations to steal research and intellectual property related to the new corona virus and international authorities have been warning for weeks that militias. Hackers are stepping up ransomware attacks against hospitals and healthcare providers that's when they break into networks and hold data hostage until the organizations pay. Let's dig into all of this and quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story. Marketplace's Scott Tong has been reporting on this from Washington. Inter poll the US government. Google Microsoft. All come out and said you know. There's a lot more attempts to get into hospitals healthcare networks drug companies working on a vaccine all of that. Take your data steal it or locked up so you can't get access to it so it certainly seems like. It is a heightened threat. There's more going on so about these warnings. Do we have a sense of what hackers are trying to get at? When they attacked these healthcare organizations the wordings have not been very specific as to what they're trying to get but what they say. Is You know. Be careful if you are a company working on a new technology a vaccine or testing technology. You should be worried so it kind of implies that's what the bad guys would naturally be after what are the attack methods. One of them is the software to get somebody in organization. Click the wrong thing as spoken to some cyber analysts. Say there's a website that looks really similar to that Johns Hopkins Global Map of the Corona virus that so many of us have clicked on if you click on the wrong thing share than the malware kind gets into your computer. There's also the fake emails and and some of them out there pretend to be from the boss of a company and then there's tools to candidate in just by hacking weak spots in a company network. And then there's another one to Kinda Rome inside the network to see what's there and another tool to lock up the data and then you can notify the people at the company the Organization to say well you know it. You don't have access to your data anymore at now you have to pay. Do we have any sense of of weather like these organizations are more or less secure? Are they in any way equipped to sort of hand deal with this at the same time that they're dealing with a massive public health crisis well people who have watched this and spoken to one person who actually negotiates on behalf of healthcare organizations and hospitals When they get hacked in this way and in what they described as many hospitals in general they don't have the latest version of software. A lot of hospitals and diagnostic machines are running on windows. Xp and they have a lot of people coming in and they're just crazy busy right now even though the authorities say well don't WanNa pay the ransom because you're rewarding bad behavior. Well if you have lives to save you might be a little bit more inclined to pay even if you're not supposed to
Ethereum Bounces and Bitcoin Gains Momentum
"Top ten now well. Jeez I'm not is a tricky little pillories. It was down yesterday so it was up yesterday but came off towards the close. This bitcoin market is just holding.

We had about a waco so ago and we are really in a position where I'm hoping to save further upside of Bitcoin. Still Whiting good tries to sit up of looked in the prophets of loss waken. Haven't had anything at all so far this week. So we'll have to wait and see what comes of. This won't one at present right now on. Bitcoin we are off and he's a nice looking knock. It hopefully break to new highs on the on the low timeframes so he can get some good seclusive for good rights on a theory of nail. Yesterday was actually down down significantly three percent down as well. They are down down down yesterday. It touched tests that ninety. Four thirty five level.

How a drop in oil prices today could fuel tomorrow's energy transition
"Oil prices take a roller coaster. Ride I'm NPR. Chief meteorologist Paul Hotter here with climate. Castor oil prices fell below zero this week as much of the world shelters in place but the pandemic may also feel a six percent drop in greenhouse gas emissions. This year that's the biggest drop emissions since World War Two. So what does it mean for greenhouse gas emissions and energy as we rebuild the global economy marketplace correspondent Scott? Tong focuses on climate and Energy Scott. Welcome to climate cast. Paul needs to be with you so oil prices dipped into negative territory this week and then they spiked again. Put this into perspective. What's going on with the oil market so demand for the world's oil which until now had been kind of steady by one hundred million barrels of oil every day worldwide. That's fallen by thirty percent and now markets are Kinda flipping out trying to adjust to this whatever you call it. This pandemic normal were in now. Scott the lack of oil demand is also translating into a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions the world meteorological organization now predicts a greenhouse gas emissions will be down about six percent this year and the UN estimates global emissions must fall by around seven and a half percent every year from now until twenty thirty to stay within that one point five degrees Celsius goal on global temperature rise. How can we keep some of these emissions cuts and get the economy working again? I think there are opportunities in. There are also some challenges here. We've lost one in twenty million jobs you know. That's about one. Out of eight of us in the workforce so something has to change but the opportunity is to lock in some telecommute. You know we've learned that a lot of us can do most of our jobs Without having to commute to work there also might be an opportunity as far as our use of oil in the market right now. A lot of oil companies are in tough shape and so they're not investing in finding more oil. So what happens down? The road is if they don't find as much in demand comes back then. The kind of won't be enough in prices are GONNA go up. Then that makes it more affordable to find cheaper greener option. Say to buy electric vehicles and that kind of thing. I understand that if you shut off a well it's not easy to bring back on. Can that push markets in a cleaner greener direction right now in the oilfields of West Texas? They don't make money at the price where it is now. And so those wells are shutting down and a lot of other places that's happening to and for the older oil wells right. They need pressure from underground bringing oil. Backup and if you turn it off. In some cases it doesn't turn back on if oil. Some of that oil has to stay in the ground. Then we kind of have a scenario like Europe right where we're gasoline is just expensive by policy and in places where gasoline at tends to be more expensive greener options become much more affordable and we've seen renewable energy jobs booming. We know that climate solutions can produce jobs. Of course now. We see the oil sector jobs in kind of a bus cycle. So are we likely to see more job shocks and transitions going forward? As our energy balance changes we've seen a lot of oil jobs disappear already. I've done some reporting long distance reporting talking folks in the Permian Basin in West Texas where there had been a lot of energy jobs in those drying up pretty quickly so there are going to be winners and losers in every kind of transition for sure. The job search going to migrate to the industry's tomorrow. Marketplace correspondent Scott Tong. Thanks for sharing your perspective on climate cast today. Of Course Ball. Nice to be with you. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul.
"tong" Discussed on 90.3 KAZU
"On that to I'm Scott Tong from one use of oil that hasn't gone away is the gas that's being used to get the stuff we need to where it needs to go even though a whole lot of this economy is shut down most of America's truckers are still hitting the roads every single day Steve fields is a driver with a big shipping company called why are sea freight he's also one of the ten people we are profiling in our series about the American labor force it's called the United States of work here is the road side perspective from one part of the essential work force once I get that truck you know I've I've wiped it down off of my shoulders and all that so that environment is pretty safe it's when you get out of the truck that's concerning you know I'm just more learn about door handles and you know you go on to the truck stop you can't really say I don't need anymore but in a bring your own you know I bring a gallon of water or something to drink that way I can restrict my my stops a little bit the changes the that I've that I've noticed is the the drivers all the drivers are workers talking about you know the traffic being down it's the for example there's you know there's a lot of road construction usually happens in the spring all across the country and with the less traffic the road construction is becoming kind of a non issue because I mean you have to slow down a little bit but you get right through it which is a it's a plus for everybody my personal life at home is has changed because we pretty much stay home I mean the we do things that need to be done around the house here you know there's always something to do if you if you live in a home or an apartment one of the cool things I've noticed I mean we've been doing a lot of yard work and stuff and the people just out walking taking a walk with her kids I think it's I think it's taught people a little bit to maybe slow down and enjoy live so that's if you have to put a positive spin on this that's probably a good thing tell us about your.
How coronavirus may slow the internet
"Well more and more companies telling workers to work from home if they can Tuesday Google advised all of its North American workers not just workers in San Francisco and Seattle that all North American workers to work from home until at least April tenth. Fortune reported that about twenty. Nine percent of the workforce could work from home in other words. The bus driver can't work from home has to be on the bus. That kind of thing but twenty nine percent of the. Us workforce could work from home. That's about forty two million people and to that schools either shutting down or going to remote classes means a lot more students of all ages college students as well possibly working from home if they're not in the dorms for instance. That's a lot more people on home. Internet then your. Isp is used to especially during the day. At and T. And Verizon told fortune that the fiber optic cable that provides the. Isp's back haul should be fine. The volume of traffic isn't expected to change too much. They'll be more video conferencing and such but they expect that the pattern of change will be the bigger problem. The traffic will be coming from homes. Not Offices one network insider told a lot of packets will go in odd directions with odd routes and people won't be able to address issues quickly enough it won't break but get ready for a ride This is a some people who live in snow areas no on snow days. Suddenly the Internet does and always work is consistently. Because everybody's trying to use it at the same time. Imagine that on nationwide levels. The chokepoints are lower bandwidth cable and copper wire services your corporate network trying to handle all that increased. Vpn traffic also companies need to find out workers at home have sufficient bandwidth and be prepared to invest in things like mobile hotspots and temporarily maybe subsidizing increasing their data plans. Of course your home Wifi network. You're not a Wifi. Six in most cases You don't have that increased capacity of suddenly all. The students are home your home. Everybody's working from home. You're overloading that WIFI network. Because more devices are using it at once as I mentioned video already estimated to be about seventy percent of network traffic already. And we're GONNA have more video conferences so that puts a little more strain on the system and don't forget apps themselves. The Internet society notes that individual tools need to provision sufficient compute storage and bandwidth resources to deal with increased users. Yes zoom wants everybody to use zoom for the video conferencing but zoom better. Make sure that they've got enough bandwith and cloud resources to handle that. They have but any kind of APP you're using from home. We'll need to prepare for that. We have a test case. China has gone through this by streaming service and educational options application called sway. Si-tong popular office applications including video conferencing applications Ding talk and we chat work online games from tencent. All reportedly crashed at one time or another due to all the increased traffic of people using them from home.
How worried should we be about COVID-19 and the economy?
"You know. Much as stock markets have built circuit breakers to put a stop to panic selling and recalibrate the mood. Which by the way happened today. Not Long. After the open when the S. and P. Five hundred hit seven percent on the downside. So too will we use the program today to recalibrate the mood to explain. Why all of a sudden the economic realities of the corona virus seemed to have gotten so much more real to start us off economists making green from the Harvard Kennedy School Megan's to have you back on the program. Thanks for having me. Why as best you can figure out did. The bottom seemingly fallout today. What happened so I think it was a confluence of two things? Mainly one is northern northern Italy. Pretty much shut down so it just fed the idea that even if cases or slowing down within China they're actually accelerating outside of China. And that's a big deal and then the second issue actually isn't directly related to the corona virus. It's more related to the OPEC meeting on Friday where Saudi and Russia decided to flood the market with oil. And so I'M OIL. Prices of fallen pretty precipitously and that creates huge credit problems for a lot of companies related to the energy industry which are actually pretty highly leveraged inert generally rated just above junk level. And so if you start seeing defaults than they'll be downgraded and there will be four selling so that's also provided a lot of drama today highly leveraged lots of borrowing more on oil coming up from Scott Tong in a minute. Let me ask you about a word you use though Things are accelerating outside China. Speaking broadly are you surprised at the speed with which this whole thing has come to this moment. Sue Him nine just given how incredibly interconnected. The world is both in terms of global supply chains but also more importantly in this case in terms of people traveling around and I think that China really did great work in buying the rest of us time In that they had really draconian measures to try to keep people in their own towns in their own buildings. It's much more than most people realize. In addition to quarantining and social distancing. You know there's an APP that the government runs where you can see you as corona virus. So that enforces social distancing so China about us a lot of time and a lot of us could have completely squandered it most of all the US so our response to this crisis has been pretty embarrassing. I think for a developed country with a highly competent health system. How much of that American response contributes to what I perceived to be the changing nature of this crisis. It's going from a supply shock which we talked about when apple had its earnings warning to now people worried about demand shock and the credit markets. And all of that. So the demand shock. I think we're really worried about and rightly so but we don't actually have any data that suggesting it's happen. So the demand shock we know is coming out of China Rate. The second largest economy in the entire world was at a standstill for at least five weeks for for the. Us demand shock at home. It's just perceived at this point right it involves people not going out to dinner not going out and spending and we can certainly get there but at the moment I think it's just concern about. It's not we're not getting any data that suggesting that that's the case really It's just something that seems like it might be coming and I think it's absolutely reasonable for us to worry about this. And then that's feeding over into the financial markets of course is confidence is is been bled from them. And so you've seen these huge moves over the past couple days if and let stress that this is a big if but if we do turn into a recession in this economy given the underlying fundamentals as politicians like to say we're strong right. The labor market strong consumers are really confident. What might a recovery look like on the other end of this thing depends entirely on epidemiology and None of us really have answers there so it really depends on how far this virus spreads if the viruses eventually contained and we have inappropriate policy response with some fiscal stimulus. You know a year from now the we might remember this entire experience but know we'll have forgotten about the economic implications of it traits. So it could just be transitive. We saw that. With the SARS virus for example. There is a big drop off in demand and then you know it picked up pretty immediately once the virus was contained. So that could be the case here but if it actually is spread further and is more deadly than of course we might not get a v-shaped recovery. It might be much more gradual and require more policy intervention Megan Green and economist. Also a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School. Thanks a lot of really. Appreciate your time and your
"tong" Discussed on Little Atoms
"You know I mean just something like that with that. We may not think that other other animals can do something as simple simple as appreciate beauty but of course I do speak more about that because science is very rigorous in the way it examines consciousness. You know there's different ways to consider what the chimpanzees were actually seeing that day and I'll leave that to the to the readers to discover more In in your little atoms. I'm now Danny today. I'm talking to Ziya Tong and we took it about her new book. The Reality Bobo blind spots hidden truths and the dangerous lesions that shape our world and Zaire as we go into the second half then as a as I said. I WanNa talk about societal blind spots that we we basically go about our lives every day. Not really thinking about you. Know a lot of the ways in which society holds together and the first days. I want to talk about the look in. The book is food. Basically food production by things like soil how the ecosystem and sustainability inability. How do we talk about the Green Revolution for instance specifically? I'd like you to say something about animal welfare. which is we? Don't really think too hard old about specifically where meat comes from. Yeah you know. I think that one of the things that really started off book was an observation that I had. We live in a world where there we can wear such a species that relies so much on our site and seeing we have cameras everywhere of course except where our food comes from where energy comes from and where are waste goes and so that is the second part of the book. This curious question of how did we become the most powerful species on earth when we don't fundamentally understand how we survive and one of the main things that we refuse to look at. This is perhaps a sense of willful blindness as well is where our food comes from. Of course. Paul McCartney famously said that if slaughterhouses had glass walls everybody would be a vegetarian right because I think we all have the sense that something very gruesome is going on. You know I mean if you think. About the fact that there's sixty six billion of farmed animals to date and they disappear yearly and yet none of us ever see them. I mean what exactly actly is happening behind those closed doors and so I do go behind the scenes and just to uncover a little bit about what is happening but not only on the level of perhaps. What's it's just gruesome which I think people assume that they know what's going on but I think actually few people do know what's going on but also on a much smaller level again returning turning in scale and looking at how these animals are produced? How did we get to a place? Where today Factory farmed animals outnumber US fifteen by one. And that's because we've really hijacked their reproductive cycles right. We don't let a lot of animals have sex anymore. We make them have sex in our way with in vitro fertilization and and in so doing we have changed the face of the planet because we've produced so many animals in order to slaughter so many animals and that has some very serious repercussions nations. Today when you're looking at the number of wild animals left on the planet being a mere you know in terms of a vertebrate biomass being a mere three to four percent and again the other thing that we not that we don't often think of is a lot of farmland that could otherwise be used for you know for producing food for ourselves obviously needs to be is to produce food for all of these billions of animals. Yeah exactly and I think in the coming decades from what I understand if if we didn't consume the amount of meat that we did because of course the meat eating being animals rely on the grain And the soy etcetera. We would we would spare about seventy five percent more farmland for ourselves so certainly Lia reduction in meat is something that a lot of people are becoming a lot more aware of because we're starting to see that link between animal agriculture and climate change. You know I've I've been looking at these really shocking images of what's going on in this industry area. I know it's stunning for everybody. To see to you know a billion animals is the most recent WWF estimate estimate and and just seeing these scorched landscapes lead red skies corpses of animals everywhere. But most people can't actually make that link between what that it has to do with animal agriculture in the very first place. Let's move onto energy. Then you mentioned this is the the the the next chapter of this section of the book and we. I really pay that much attention to how electricity gas to that plug socket on our wall. No Yeah I mean. I was just really fascinated to learn. Learn a lot more about electricity and learning more about the grid. And so I I get into a story about actually the grid operators who who in England. I don't know if you know about the story of pickup. You have yes of course when everybody gets us to. The End of East enders most popular TV show. Yeah the needs to be a needs to be boosted. Exactly because everybody in England likes to get up for a COUPLA A COUPLA here and when they do that everybody gets up at the same time to turn on their kettles all of a sudden this creates a huge surge in `electricity city. And so the folks that the grid actually have to be watching along and watching eastenders or watching the British bake off for that moment when everybody everybody gets up to make a cup of tea so that they can ensure that there is enough electricity they can turn on a system that essentially is like an artificial waterfall. That wars wars that water down to spin those turbines and of course the fact that electricity is fresh made. That was something like it's fresher than orange juice. The minute you are turning on that switch you know that Cole is like burning embers. The moment you start you know using it up or the same with the electricity. That comes from hydro-electric dam so once he just start delving in. That was the thing I started realizing. There's just so much fascinating stock going on beyond the reach of my. Is You know this. This is an interesting. I wasn't aware of the freshness of Vinet Tracy. I think. Everybody presumes that there is some sort of battery type thing outlets of West or in electricity until it's needed but that's not okay. Yeah I mean. Batteries are the things that we're just starting to work on now and batteries are the things that are going to propel us into renewable energy future and That's what we've been waiting for but up until then it's been. It's been fresh squeezed stuff fuel. I mean I think you know especially nowadays so we talk about renewable energy versus fossil fuels. It's probably easy for people to think that we took it about fossil fuels. Ns all that term comes from the old the old way of doing things like a sort of legacy type fuel rover that literally the Beta out of fossils sir. Yeah that was another thing that I was just fascinated by in interviewing people for the last fifteen years on various TV shows. I've had a chance to speak to some of the smartest people in the world. Lots of scientists researchers but what I started realizing I started asking people when I started writing this book. That ninety five percent of people don't want oil is you know and that's that's pretty shocking to me that you know you can ask all these highly intelligent people and they have no clue. They know that it runs the global economy. They I know that it's this black stuff but most of them don't realize that this is ancient dead stuff right and you know in a thousand tons of it goes into every tank of Gassin Jason about three tablespoons is the equivalent of eight hours of manual labor. And it's this energy it's because it is such powerful ancient energy it it actually. It's a prehistoric world. That fuels are present. One in many ways so the next chapter in in that part as you mentioned is about waste and he took. Oh Al kinds of ways both obviously human waste animal waste as well But obviously garbage and I guess most specifically most urgently now we're talking about Plastics yes certainly plastics are something I think. We all need to contend with. But it's interesting right well. Politics is in fact. I'm wondering if it's a good news story or not a good news story. I feel like I feel like we're actually making some headway. Finally when it comes to plastics. This isn't necessarily what I talk about in my I book but just in the news a little while ago. I saw that people in Australia are actually taking plastic. Garbage actually being able to transform Orman to its chemical elements to recreate it as oil and gas again as fuel which is really quite wonderful and their whole whole different ways that people are dealing with plastic Dick but yeah plastic is a strange thing right because you know seventy years ago. It just simply wasn't around nobody out this stuff and now it's absolutely ubiquitous. You'd be you'd be hard pressed to look around your surroundings right now and not see parts of objects everywhere around you that are made with plastic stick this substance that was originally built because it was created to create objects that are so durable and yet today. We've flipped the script entirely. And and you know it's it's an embarrassment when you think about the fact that you can use something like a little plastic bag for a sandwich just one time in the stuff is GonNa last for thousands and thousands of ears and of course. This plastic is entering our food system in our food chain as well and you know slowly today. It seems like we are really eating drinking in graphic the last part of the book. You look at what you describe as intergenerational blind spots things you know days traditions that we've basically has taken on because they were the way things done and we sort of carry on and often these things sort of trappers and there's a really fantastic chapter about time the idea of time being a you know an invented concept the idea of keeping time being something that obviously we invented. Initially I guess the real sort of like in Australia of time was when we started working with industry revelation in in factories. And it was like you know a way to make everything runs smoothly and of course. It's something that we are fundamentally trapped in. Yeah and we tend to forget that it's our own human invention and how flexible these notions can be right. I mean just very recently. I was pleased to see that in Japan. They're starting to test out. I think it was actually Microsoft. That starting to test out something like a four day workweek and they're starting to realize that people have so much more productivity you know when you actually give them more time and space debris but there have been many fights over the years in Erez everything from the The haymarket riots where people used to work sixty hours a week and they had to fight to not work during the weekends to give us our present day workweeks to just even the very notion of time being you know eight o clock which actually originally was of the clock. And you know because we don't say of the clock we forget. Get this notion that the clock is an invented. Time altogether and I don't want to give away too much of course but as you know in this chapter it really breaks time apart and starts to begin to show us what the ramifications are for how we've structured time and how how it's a really really destructive force at the end of the day. What of course you mentioned the Haymarket market riot? It's the idea of sort of rioting for better conditions but indeed people did riot when time zones or whatever were tempted to be foisted. Foist the Putnam as well absolutely an Indiana. I write about a book as well. Yeah they absolutely fought back fist against the notion of having this structured time times time actually had to be really beaten into us. We didn't we didn't take to it too easily but again this notion that China's flexible a lot of this really. This book is really about thinking about the way in which we think in different ways to realize that the track largely is one that we've set ourselves so you have a chapter about following uh-huh from the time about you know ideas of measurement about boulders and catastrophe and things these are obviously you know human constructions as well and a NATO as as I mentioned illegal and talk about the financial system. You know the invention of money capitalism but I WANNA finish off talking about the idea of. GPS this invisible network of satellites to recovers because GPS. Google maps is something has really really transformed my life seemingly for the better. I have no idea how it works. Well you know I mean it's incredible right because in the modern day and we have these networks of satellite. Sometimes you'll be looking up at night and you'll see what looks like a shooting star and you'll soon realize of course a satellite and we have all these satellites for so many different purposes and a lot of them are important for being able to navigate the way in which we do today and in the book.

What to do about the trouble utility p genie Pacific Gas and electric the investor owned company provides gas and electricity more than five million Californians, and it is widely reported that PG knees considering bankruptcy as the way to manage.
