Fresh update on "tribune" discussed on Justice and Drew

"O many years ago in critical race theory education that permeated our public schools that quietly, you know, not not a lot of people even realised it did. I didn't realized the extent to which it did until I started seeing it pop up in conversations I have with my own kids. You know, and then type stuff that they were talking, though they were learning in schools, But this stuff has been has been happening. It's been growing, and it's permeating for awhile. And right now, this generation that's that's primarily out there on the streets, burning things throwing things cost playing lame is they are the product. Of so much of that critical race theory, garbage and nonsense that has been petted propaganda and it's indoctrination. And it should be completely out of our schools from the Star Tribune this morning May around, wrote this President Donald Trump's praise. Of a nearly all white crowds. Good genes came during a Friday night rally in Bemidji, where he also sharpened attacks on refugees. Wow. What? What a way to frame this opening one all white crowds in any when we get to the good genes, comment right, Trump said. You had this was. This was near the end of his wide ranging, nearly two hour speech that we were talking about right that the state was pioneered by men and women who were tough and strong, strong and braved the wilderness and the winters to build a better life. And he said You have good genes. You know that right? You have good genes. A lot of it is about the jeans. Isn't it too? Don't you believe the racehorse theory? You think we're so different? You have good genes in Minnesota. Okay? Okay. Minnesotans Talkabout. It were hardy right way like this. We're like the cold weather get out there, and we do stuff in the cold weather. That's bins of the Minnesotans say about themselves very, very long time. Oh, he used the word jeans. Yeah, well, according to Maya says some some some heard echoes of Nazi language used to justify their genetic superiority in which led to the killing of six million Jews during the Holocaust. Yes, and she went right to the one person that she knew she could get the quote she wanted from Karen Ross. Yeah, who sees a Nazi behind every door for Minnesota? Juice, says Cara's. It's chilling to hear this language, which echoes the races science used by Nazis to justify the extermination of so many of our ancestors. Put it in an e mail Monday. Yeah, you did. Yeah, you did, because you knew you'd get more leverage that way. Third, an email. But we recognize that the president is choosing this language intentionally celebrating the supposed genetic superiority of European immigrants here in Minnesota on stolen on stolen native land that has become home to immigrants all over the world to sow division and hatred between us What he did What Yeah, OK, Karen, you have anything to substantiate that. Karen rots. She's she lives here, right? Yeah. Yes. Okay. So Trump was in Bemidji talking about people that live in Minnesota so effectively. He's talking about Karen. Talk about her to carry is talking about you. You have good genes. You have good genes, according to Trump It's very simple. This isn't that hard. But it is hard. It is hard when, when, when you have to attack a president who you can't go after on anything policy related. So instead, right, you've got to go and attack his character and just make up garbage. That's all This is all my aroud did was she looked at the audience which wasn't all white Right, But I want to say it was nearly all white. Okay, so just a push back and just playing the same sort of tactics. What about the people in the crowd that we're not white? Maya? What about those particular in the individuals who were there? Supporting Trump is well, I wanted to reach out to them for comment. I'd like to hear what they had to say. With regard to your sort of combining of and extrapolating the good genes was somehow a Nazi dog whistle, will you and you went to the person that here's a Nazi dog whistle every single morning when they wake up You're going to get a reliable quote from Karen Murat's every single time. Ah, truck did go on, Go on to say right at the rally. The president said the Biden would fill the state with refugees from dangerous countries, echoing previous attacks on representative Ilhan Omar. Are you having a good time with your refugees? Trump asked. As a supporter, shouted Omar. He continued. Omar. That's a beauty. How the hell did she win the election? Good question its offensive. That's a very good question. King Trump has attributed his own success over the years to good genes even well before he became president. But Veena iron like into Trump's comments in Bemidji, Teo Eugenics advocates, including Nazis in U. S policy makers who about 100 years ago built in immigration system based on racial quotas. Oh, this is 100 years ago and again drew to the point that you talked about with Karen Murat's. This was the executive director of the Immigration Law Center of Minnesota. So, yeah, you're going to get what you're going to get when you're approaching those particular individuals? Yeah, way Are we now supposed to pretend that the phrase you know good genes. Like Trump just made this up, and nobody's ever used it before him in the Nazis. It was just a moment just him, and we've never used that phrase in reference to anybody else or any other thing. It's just Trump in. The Nazis is crazy to me were right word and again, another bike story. We're right into the neighborhood and I passed by this house, and there's a big RV on the corner of this home and on the back He's got a decorated. He's got signs, and it's a big pro pro Joe Biden sign, right and then next to it, he's got another fairly large sign, and it said it said Trump and Putin faking out America. Oh, I don't know what you mean. Is your is your mind capable enough for you to pay the mortgage every month? I mean, you have a driver's license because you're an RV, but I mean, how big of an idiot are you? What does that even mean? I don't know. I just It's it's so shallow and again, it just points factor. They cannot point to anything in terms of policy. They just They can't He's left them nowhere to go.

The Birth Of The Greenback

"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah. Support for NPR and the following message come from fund. fundraise fund makes it easy for anyone to invest in high quality real estate by building you a portfolio with their more than one billion dollars in assets get started at fundraise dot com slash indicator to have your first ninety days of advisory fees. Waived. This message comes from NPR sponsor. Microsoft teams. Now, there are more ways to be a team with Microsoft teams bring everyone together in a virtual room collaborate live on the same page and see up to forty nine people onscreen learn more at Microsoft Dot com slash teams. So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer

"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.

Film Academy Announces New Diversity Requirements For Best Picture Nominees

"Hi. This is in the Chicago Tribune yesterday. In an historic move, the Oscars are raising the inclusion bar for best picture nominees, starting with the 96 Academy Awards. This is the one in 2024. Gives the motion picture industry time to do what they say you need to do if you want to be considered for the best picture to meet on screen representation, Standard of film must either have atleast one lead character or a significant supporting character be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group. At least 30% of secondary roles must be from to underrepresented groups. Where the main storyline theme or narrative must be focused on an underrepresented group. Otherwise, the way I understand it If you're not including people who are under represented relative to gender orientation, race, ethnicity, even disability. If you don't do that, then you can't be the best picture. Michael Phillips. Film critic joins us on W G N Hi, Michael. Welcome to the show. Thank you, John. How are you doing? Really good. That's my understanding of it is that is that a right read on what they're going to do. It is it's although it's it's damn complicated, but, you know, really broken down beautifully with Steve Zai, Check my festival going, pal who's writes in The Washington Post that it's complicated, but you gotta get to Of the four elements right story. The film story, lead actor or ensemble have tto prominently feature unrepresented groups or, you know those working behind the scenes, Same thing, or the production includes paid internships and training for those who are under represented, or that always released team has to have multiple in how senior executives from underrepresented groups, so it's complicated. But you only gotta hit two of the four and I think that I think the telling point he makes is that out of the last 15 best picture Oscar winners last 15 years. 73% of would have been quite clear. No problem. I'm not just talking about what happened. Moonlight or parasite we have, you know, clearly like not the usual white wall of characters or treatment, but you know there's all kinds, so it's not really a cz. I don't want I don't want to. I don't wanna throw fuel on this fire. But it's not really to say it's not the same kind of You know, like under. What would you say affirmative action that a lot of the right is framing it as but you're also saying, I mean, so you see the glasses three quarters full, but I You could also see it is one quarter empty. That is one in four films would not that one. The best picture had met this criteria. Not usually, but I mean, if you just had hired, Let's say, Let's say you didn't even re cast that or rethink anything. It's on screen. Right in terms of the characters are the actors, If you just if those productions had, well, you know what Let's we're all we have is a bunch of white grips or we've never had a female, You know, director of photography or we've never had any any composer of color, you know, working out? Why not? Why not think twice about that? That's that's a less visible but equally important. Right. I think people will judge this though maybe by what they see on the screen on I'm thinking, okay. King speech won best picture that was populated Desire recalled by white people. However, that is about a disability if you will, so maybe that satisfies the requirements. I could just see there being lobbying for some of these criteria to Yeah. Yep. Yep, the ones that would have would have run into a problem. According to the Washington Post, uh, run down his argo, the artist, No country for old men. And the Departed would have had the toughest time as wass.

The Decline of Local News is Solvable

"Margaret. Sullivan is the media columnist for the Washington Post and formerly the public editor of the new. York Times. Her new book is called ghosting the news local journalism and the Crisis of American democracy? I talked with her about the scale and seriousness the collapse of local news and what can be done to fix it. Or Margaret thanks for joining us on solvable and let's talk first about the dimensions of this problem. There's no question that we are losing local newspapers. I think something close to two thousand. If I read that right in your book have gone out of business in the past fifteen years and the ones that are remain aren't exactly thriving, and of course that matters a lot to us journalists says our friends that's the system we came up in. But why does this matter so much as you say in the title of your book to American Democracy. It matters because. While newspapers are certainly not the only way that people are informed about their communities in their public officials, they have been over time perhaps the key way that people get information about how their local governments are functioning and how communities have a base of. facts from which to operate they may disagree on the facts or what to do about them but they sort of have this shared substance that that makes sense to everybody. As that has dwindled away largely because of the dissolution of the underlying business model based on print advertising. Largely, people are are less informed people are less civically engaged and it. It hurts the underlying the underpinnings of of the way our society in our government is supposed to function. So it's primarily an accountability problem. Right if simply put if the press isn't watching government officials can get away with more corruption mismanagement. I think you said it exactly right Jacob. It is primarily an accountability problem but I I see another aspect to to which I just like to mention which is has nothing to do with really watchdog journalism or that accountability piece, which is that newspapers have traditionally been away that communities helped knit themselves together whether it's about coverage of concerts or restaurants or theater or interesting people or obituaries it's sort of village square for the community. That has nothing to do with whether the town council or the city council is mismanaging your tax dollars, but it does have to do with sort of cohesion within the community. So it's it's both of those things and probably a bunch of others to. But why is it important that it's news organizations versus you know bloggers or people posting smartphone videos tweeting about what's going on their town or community Weisensee. Citizen Journalism the replacement for all this. Citizen Journalism. If that's what we want to call it is is part of the solution. One of the things it can't do very well, though is publicized to the same degree that a front page headline or a big homepage treatment can from the Chicago Tribune or the Sun Times you know it's a lot easier to ignore a gadfly citizen as these folks might be seen rather than a big institution that's powerful.

Why You Should Capitalize On Marketplace Opportunities

"Nice Guy Community check this out today a hunter. He is known for his success as an architect of change and a leader of business transformation. His belief is the importance of talent culture and it's exemplified by the strong executives he has developed. He now works closely with executives, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and organizations to help them capitalize on marketplace opportunities and proactively address digital disruption. So what does all that stuff mean? So it means that our guest today he knows what he's talking about. He's not just a guy that talks the talk. He walks the walk as well. Welcome Tony to the Nice guys on business podcast pleasure to be hurt Doug. Thanks. For having me at love having you here man and and you know we talked a little bit in our pre interview just about some of this stuff and some of your your experience that you've been through and I love it because you've gone from publishing to pot from media to marijuana and conservative to cannabis. So can we start just a little bit with your back backstory 'cause I think it's so fascinating how you've gone from a really ultra conservative environment and publishing, and you're now into an entirely disruptive in a brand new world. So maybe share a little bit of your background and then we can take it from there. Tony. All thanks Doug I usually get asked that question that's not a straight line of course for most to think about a after a long career at Tribune company one of the greatest media companies in the world. After I left the company. There were three things I was looking for one in publishing mission. Our mission was always sold for and I wanted to have that I also love being an disruptive environment and the challenge and then third I enjoy. Building something and building a team and setting visions what I look at opportunities. On the mission side, you know cannabis a started out. In every state and I've had experience with friends and relatives that have seen the relief and benefits but disloyal cannabis and I really been attracted to that and natural medicine in general for about fifteen years now. So I started learning more about that and saw the impact it was having and I really believe that as regulations are relaxed, we're gonNA find more benefits of medicinal cannabis and so that intrigued me second clearly this is a disruptive You, know as this gains more traction more clinical trials, this will be disruptive form of treatment and medicine, and then last I believed that my experience as a an operator at Tribune and complexity was really perfectly aligned for rapidly growing company like Revolution Global, which is the Illinois based Cannabis Company that I am chairman of the board and I thought bringing those operating skills could help manage gross and really have the. Organization have the Rigor and discipline to succeed. So it wasn't that far of a stretch given my personal and belief in natural medicine but also experiences of friends and relatives that have found release is so that's how I that had brought me here and brought me to participate in this site. So you recently wrote a blog post I guess within the last couple of months and you mentioned in your blog post. Farmer versus hunter companies, and you know we're dealing in the day of this recording. Hopefully, people are listening to this five years from now what was that time in life? That was really? Challenging that that Cova dive but we're dealing right now in an environment that that you need to evolve and change rapidly or and pivot rapidly, or you're gonNA find yourself on the firing line of of extinction. So can you maybe explain this farmer and hunter mentality within organizations and see you know maybe we can create some connection between farmers and hunters and those that are in our community right now? Yes. Well, you know it's an. Older, way to look at businesses but farmers, you could just think of those as big established legacy companies. And Hunters as these emerging startups and high growth companies that are disrupting many of those legacy companies and. I really believe greatness occurs len you do and also things you know it's it's not big companies do a lot of things well, but they normally are very agile. They normally don't have this passion behind the mission and vision of the company and also their their ability to pivot to your point and drive new ideas because they're so successful in large in many times, they lose that edge and I think they could learn a lot from the hunters and maintain those real good benefits being large in scale and discipline, but add those components of. Being Agile and also creating a organizations that pivot frequently, and conversely I think a lot of times the hunter organizations. Lol. Organizations they're growing at all costs, and at some point, there's an inflection that needs to occur and use pivot that needs to occur, and they could learn a lot about building a talented leadership team having the Rigor and discipline of a large organization while maintaining. Those agility characteristics, passion conviction, innovative thinking in those. That's the essence of that blog post. Doug is learning from the strengths of one another and to be great you should do all of those things. Well, how

"Oh stop it is however less money than the company will pay severance just to one executive. Who's leaving this month at the Baltimore Sun? Journalists and leading community organizations are trying to break this cycle tribune has already slashed the sun's newsroom. To less than a quarter of where it once stood. It's been very worrisome. And troubling the downsizing that's happened at the Baltimore Sun and really newspapers across the country. Matt Gallagher is president and CEO of the Gold Sector Foundation along with the Able Foundation and the local news union. It is trying to buy the sun from Tribune publishing and turn it into a nonprofit. Really there is no institution that I can think of. That is more central to the day to day life of the city than the Baltimore Sun and a free and independent and robust local newspaper. I mean it literally is part of the daily fabric of what happens in Baltimore. Every single day. He says that is more important than boosting profits. Which is why journalists are looking warily. Toward the end of June when the Hedge Fund Alden Global Capital can take full control of Tribune publishing. Alden is already the largest single investor in the company. It now owns two hundred news publications. Its track record suggests even more. Severe budget cuts could become a tribute soon dude. Folkenflik. Npr News. Disney is now taking the first steps towards reopening in the United States. Today some of its Disney springs shops and restaurants open to the public last week. It was Disneyland in Shanghai and even though the Disney Corporation has put rules in place requiring people wear face masks and undergo temperature checks. The company has also issued a warning saying come at your own risk. Martin Lewis is a business management professor and he's also known as Professor Roller Coaster. He focuses on the theme park industry at Farmingdale State College in New York Martin. Welcome thank you very much. It's my pleasure so there are no dates yet for when Disney will reopen. Its theme parks. But what do you make of their warning to the public? Does it absolve them from liability of someone gets covert nineteen on their property? Well there is a certain degree of risk that's taken upon by visitors. Disney's really being as transparent as they can be saying that we're taking whatever reasonable precautions. We can to make it a safe place to go. But ultimately we can't be held responsible now whether they can or cannot be held liable ultimately will would end up in the courts. If somebody somebody were to actually sue. Yeah but I think a lot of people were surprised by Disney's statement basically come at your own a place that is often so welcoming and providing experience for people and all of their places Yes Disney theme parks are designed in such a way that you put the the outside world aside and enter a new a new realm of magic fantasy. That's a little bit of a slap in the face. To the person that's trying to fantasize when they come in and says oh by the way you may catching life threatening illness but on the other hand I think just will be taking. An unusual will be taking some sort of risk. That wasn't there in the past. I mean everybody. Anybody can can stumble when they're getting off a a theme park ride and break their leg and those kinds of risks always exist and we sort of take assume those risks without thinking but yet Disney wants to remind you that now there's a new risk and it does kind of take the sheen off the fantasy but I hope it has the effect of making guests be that much more careful. That guests should be careful about wearing a mask that guess should be careful about keeping distance. You know from other parties in the park and if that communal behavior leads to fewer infections overall than than I think the warning serves a purpose other than legal protection. Your nickname as I mentioned is professor coaster because you and your wife are really theme park enthusiasts you say you visit more than one hundred theme parks year If you could go back one day soon would you I would. The truth is that it's really my wife. I think that's putting the brakes on things. I'm not anxious to go out but we do live right in the middle of Queens and it's been hard hit here and my wife happens to be a an Er doctor so my wife has seen covid. Nineteen way up. Close. She's definitely spooked about going out in public and they're definitely some risks to going back to large gatherings of people at this stage of the game. So I'm certainly excited about the season possibly reopening but I think that as I said my wife is a little bit more on the cautious side know. She's my riding buddy so we're probably not going to be going anywhere anytime soon. Yeah I mean I. I'm just thinking about theme. Parks are really large public gatherings even if they are all of these precautions in place and we're talking about Disney in this discussion. But I'm thinking about some of those other types of theme parks smaller ones like six flags and Cedar. Point in Sandusky Ohio Do you think that they will survive? Moving forward if they have to stay closed during what is usually a peak season the spring and the summer and early fall. Well I do think that parks like Disney when they open. I think they'll they'll do it right. And you know they're operate they're going to operate at much lower than normal capacity and typically at a theme park you're outdoors so there's it's not like being caught inside in a small space with other people sight. The you know there are certainly some risks but I think Disney is going to try. Disney and other large companies are going to try to manage the risks as well as they can and in fact Disney has the deepest pockets but I also think that companies like universe the basically the big six seven Disney universal six flags Cedar Fair seaworld entertainment and then there are a couple of foreign owned chains parks reunion does and Merlin entertainments the Lega lands. I think those companies are going to get through it. I think this is clearly going to be a difficult period for all of them. I'm more worried about the smaller parks. The regional parks the mom and pop owned parks. That have been in a single family for generations. You know there are like five thousand different amusement and attractions companies in the United States. If you take every amusement park waterpark and Family Entertainment Center you know. There's more than five thousand of them so there are definitely some that are going to be under under pressure. Hopefully much of the industry will survive. But of course it's not just the theme park industry anything related to entertainment travel. Tourism is under pressure right now. That's Martin Lewison. He is a business management professor who focuses on the theme park industry at Farmingdale State.

"Flint is media and entertainment reporter for the Wall Street Journal, and he joins us via Skype from Los Angeles, Joe, this was a deal that would have Sinclair purchase Tribune, but it could only get approved if Sinclair spun off TV stations in the process. Were there problems regarding how Sinclair was proceeding on this front? Yes, there were Sinclair was very reluctant to want to spin off any of the properties either there's or Tribune to comply with TV ownership -regulation and the filings that they did make. To spin off stations were pushed back on by the FCC. The FCC felt that sin Claire wasn't being entirely candid about their spin off plans. There were questions about whether Sinclair would still control the stations. It was spinning off through the deals it had made because some of the deals it made has been off stations where with business partners of Sinclair. So all those things proved very problematic to the FCC. And in the meantime, Tribune was sitting here trying to get this deal done in growing increasingly frustrated by what they felt was Sinclair's unnecessarily aggressive and protracted negotiations with regulators over this issue. Now you write that last month. FCC chairman Ajit pie said he had serious concerns about Sinclair submissions as part of the agency's review. And he sent it to an administrative law judge. And that's us. The death knell for an attempted a merger? Yes, that's that's pretty much the FCC's way of saying they are not going to approve this deal, and then they move it over to a to a law judge and they were going to be issues again into what Sinclair had been proposing. I don't wanna get too down in the weeds, but I think I good example of one of the transactions that was giving the FCC headaches was in Chicago Sinclair offered to spin off the Tribune station. They are WGN TV, but the party that they were spending it off to is a business colleague of the Sinclair chairman, David Smith and the purchase price for the station that they were going to sell with sixty million dollars, which was way below market value for that station in the nation's third largest market. And the fact that Sinclair would essentially be in business with this licensee in the FCC felt would have. Facto control of the station was a problem for them. They thought you're getting too cute for us and this isn't gonna fly. That sounds like a flat out conflict of interest in sort of. Yeah. I mean, Sinclair he's been around a long time and they built their company through very aggressive deal making and relationships, and I've covered them a long time. So I feel comfortable in saying they will take the rules to the limit of snapping to to grow and they've been very successful. But this time around such a big deal, such disdain for the regulatory process, at least according to the Tribune that the FCC and the department of Justice was getting increasingly frustrated in basically said, this isn't gonna fly. Joe briefly tell us about these companies. Tribune owns mostly major market TV stations Sinclair on smaller market properties? Yes. In care is a family run publicly held..
