Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown
"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families.

The Pandemic Is Pushing People Out of Prisons
"The novel coronavirus and prison is dangerous combination in the united. States. One hundred and twenty thousand cases have been detected in prisons and one thousand incarcerated people have died so far these deaths and the danger of more have driven prison and jail reforms that have been long delayed staff writer. Kelly Servic is here to talk about De car Suray Shen in the US what is happening how researchers are weighing in on the process and how it's affecting public safety and Health Hi Kelly is there the US is unusual not just? In a large number of corona virus cases that we've had, but also in the size of its incarcerated population, how does the United States compare with other countries? In this respect? The US is is sort of the leader in terms of mass incarceration. Unfortunately, the US has the highest prison population of any country in the world with over two million people in in prison right now, it was very clear from the beginning of the pandemic that the system of jails and prisons in this country was going to be especially dangerous for. The people living in them because not only are they not designed structurally to allow for social distancing but many of them are already extremely overcrowded. There's been calls for years to D Karsh straight or to cut down on the number of people in prison and jails, and now there's been a big push to make this happen quickly what's happened with the number so far have we seen a big decrease in incarcerated people? So some analyses have suggested a decrease pretty early in the pandemic of about twenty, five percent of the. Population of jails in the US, which is pretty dramatic. That's something that a lot of jails have not been able to achieve in any other way but jails and prisons are are a bit different in this respect. Jails are often holding people who have not yet been convicted and are awaiting sentencing are waiting trial prisons meanwhile told people who are already convicted and serving sentences have not budged nearly as much in terms of population despite some efforts by states to reduce populations of seen figures of eight percent thirteen percent so still. Pretty, modest reductions there the numbers are going down how is this happening who's getting out or are people just never going in in the first place it's happening for all those reasons is happening in a bunch of different ways which was one of interesting things in talking to corrections administrators about this some jail systems have focused on, for example, eliminating the bail requirement that was keeping people there if they couldn't pay to get out or eliminating the requirement of people, sit in jail on parole violations of picking out specific populations. Of People that they felt didn't pose any public safety risk and and were there sort of on technical violations of various kinds prisons, it's been a little bit more complicated in that they've had to select groups of people. They don't pose any public safety risk and also are particularly high risk for covid. Some governors have commuted the sentences of people in prison because they're medically vulnerable or older, for example, or if they have a short time to serve on their sentence and then beyond all this, there's also the factor that A. Major reason that jails strength is simply because arrests went down particularly early in the pandemic as police officers were making fewer arrests, fewer people out on the streets, but also likely officers were seeking to avoid physical interactions where could so yeah, all these factors are complicated and some of them are are a bit more locked in place, and some of them are likely to fluctuate again as states reopen and things change with the pandemic. So it's really hard to to sort of know what's GonNa happen next
Fresh update on "twenty five percent" discussed on Trent365
"With sales plummeting many businesses around the world are left with excess inventory and having that inventory just sitting in the store him somewhere isn't really doing you any favors especially if that inventory has an expiry date and one of the best ways to encourage people to buy your inventory is to offer them a payment plan. Give me twenty five percent. Now, take the product with you, and then you pay the rest the remaining seventy, five percent in equal monthly instalments for the next few months now. That to me seems like a real consumer I approach, but I'm not hearing a lot of companies offering those are really promoting those at the moment in stayed. What I'm seeing is companies saying pay now years later, which of course is really all about the business trying to ave cash flow, which is fine but the same risk uncertainty that businesses face consumers are also facing. So the ability for a consumer to at least partially defer the book and in the financial outlay over the next few months. Makes a lot of sense for consumates encourage them to buy your product, and again if your products the sitting on shelves someway and if they're expiring, it doesn't make any sense to let him do it five. To Take your twenty-five percent payment now and then the other seventy, five percent over the next few months the not solid inventory at all, and there's a number of platforms that they do it off after pay is one of the big one. There's a number of different platforms and tools available to you to implement a payment plan that basically takes all the burden and the risk of you and put. It back on the financial institutions. So I would really encourage you to think about offering payment plans if you're not already and if you are offering them trying to encourage people to use it, maybe even.
Remote Workers are Building Tiny, Gorgeous Backyard Offices
"Now, here's a pandemic inspired trend and a business opportunity very few saw coming the backyard office. With the kids and the spouse at home for months, remote workers are struggling with all that new found and occasionally unwanted intimacy so more and more of us are building tiny offices in our yards. are yards that's right and while the smallest of them may be no more than one hundred square feet or so they can be pretty plush while some handy. Do It yourself or designing and building these standalone getaways themselves others are purchasing stylish prefabricated tiny buildings and that's boosting growth for some existing shed companies and sparking some entrepreneurs to start new companies to fill the sudden demand among them modern shed studio shed, and the one with our favorite name. Some elbow. Room I mean for crying out loud elbowroom room right first. Let's get one thing out of the way. The opportunity to build a separate fully electrified heated and air conditioned office in your yard is a privilege that many just don't have for one building an extra room in the yard requires you to have a yard begin with still it's typically far cheaper than adding a room to your house. Those costs can run more than one hundred, thousand dollars at kangaroo. Systems Kangaroo get a prefab builder out of Waco Texas. The cost of their smallest unit called Quick Room starts at five thousand dollars. Modern sheds prices started about ten thousand for a one hundred square foot shed not surprisingly prices begin climbing as customers expand the size and especially the charm of the buildings at a bathroom in your budget expands further that said privacy is obviously valuable these days which accounts for the sales growth prefab shed companies have been experiencing since. The pandemic emerged Mike Caning CEO of Colorado based Studio Shit Tolsey NBC that by May, the company sales had quadrupled over last year. All signs pointed toward that growth accelerating at modern shed sales were up twenty five percent. June as the summer wore on modern shed general manager Tim vaccine interest gauged by download. The company's catalog was up four hundred percent in typical summers. Interest rises about fifty percent. He told USA Today as homeowners consider buying playhouses and garden sheds. This year, you're more likely to put a desk and a couch in your new tiny building than a shovel and a rake unlike sheds of old. These tiny buildings can look like decorators dreams. They arrive prebuilt with fully insulated walls covered with wall, wood, paneling, picture windows, Cedar Shingles and other decorator touches make these miniature houses well worthy of Pinterest and instagram. And while they can be expensive there also a good investment for people considering Resale CNBC says, a Home Office has shot to the top of the must-have list for new home buyers. It's also a lot easier to build separate tiny offices in your yard than it is to add onto your home because of the prefab nature of these products, Mike Caney, the studio shed. CEO told the new. York Times. They've had a building helicopter to a remote in Alaska and even brought up freight elevators in New York. Providing you don't need a helicopter to take delivery of your new office. It can take only weeks to have your new refuge built once delivered, you'll need a crew to install it and hookup electricity and so forth or you'll need to put in some muscle of your own and keep in mind you might need a city permit or at least approval from an Hoa one other piece of advice for entrepreneurs listening this could be a trend worth. Jumping on if you have construction background and access to supplies, designers and labor. That's what Aaron Callaghan. Co Founder, and CEO of some elbow room did with her husband. Patrick. Callahan, she recently started some elbow room in San Antonio there blanketing the area with marketing and expect to make three quarters of a million dollars. This year like modern hsieh studio shed prices started about ten dollars per square foot but back to buying one of these cute little refuges. Whatever you choose get in line, this is a trend that's just starting and it's likely to get bigger fast as we all continue to shed.

CDC finds kids without symptoms can transmit COVID-19 to adults
"A new study from the CDC family yes. Very Young Children can get cove nineteen and spread the virus to adults. Even if the kids are not showing symptoms, the CDC looked at three daycare facilities in Utah. It found twelve kids and ten staff members got infected from someone else out the daycare on the bright side, all the kids had mild or. No symptoms but through contact tracing investigators found that each of those children spread the virus to at least twenty five percent of the people they were in contact with outside of that daycare. Usually that meant parents and siblings keep in mind research has already shown children older than ten can spread the virus but until now, data has been limited about younger
Trevor Noah condemns Trump's COVID-19 Response
"Back to the daily social distancing show and yes, we are still social distancing pretty soon the top of my head is going to be six feet away from my forehead. That's the plan. That's how I'm going to measure my distance from people hey, what's going on becks they s see you know the reason we still social distancing is because the coronavirus is still spreading, and this is thanks partly to people not taking it seriously. So let's catch up in another installment of our ongoing segments the pandemic. I our pandemic coverage, Hicks off in Utah State in desperate need of the l shaped tetris piece. We now know that one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of coronavirus is just to have everybody where a mosque unfortunately telling everyone to wear a mosque is also one of the easiest ways to spread idiocy after more than one weeks in schools have reopened in Washington County Liberty, action coalition hosted a rally in front of the school district building. This morning up to a thousand people showed up saying the children being forced to wear masks in classrooms is illegal and even unconstitutional. Now have gathered here in front of the Washington County. Administration building calling for. The end of a mouse mandate. If we want to wear a mask, that's fine we can take care of ourselves when George Floyd was saying I can't breathe and then he died and We're wearing a mask and we say I can't breathe but we're for story anyway I'll tell you another reason I'd hate mass most child molesters love them God. Damn. These people were crazy. In fact, you know what they should have. Let them storm the school building because maybe they would have accidentally learn something like I'm still trying to process everything that was going on at that rally no matter how many times I watched that video i. still find new things to process. Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.
With all this new tech in remote schooling, what are the privacy implications
"Every week this fall, we're covering technology and education because Oh man are Monday mornings more complicated than they used to be one question we've gotten a lot is what all this tech means for privacy how much data is being collected about our kids and how it's being stored and used the good news is there are a lot of rules around that. At the federal level. There's the children's Online Privacy Protection Act Copa Furka the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and there are over. One hundred state laws dealing with student privacy bad news is not everyone knows about them. Amelia Vance's with a nonprofit future of Privacy Forum. It's pretty locked down. You had a lot of fears as ED tech was spreading and schools back in two thousand, fourteen, twenty, fifteen thousands of student privacy bills have been introduced, and so these bills ended up restricting companies from selling or sharing without consent or targeted advertising or really doing anything with student data that parents and policymakers wouldn't approve of. But there are still some tensions there about you know. When a company isn't for education and data share with it, they're not covered by these student privacy laws. It sounds like you're describing a system of laws that really could be effective assuming. Basically transparency and enforcement. So, do we have those two things I would say we're definitely. Not. Quite. Drowning but we're certainly inundated with student privacy laws and protections here. Most people don't know about them teachers. There was a great survey by common sense media a couple years ago. That said only twenty five percent of teachers had been trained on student privacy and many of the laws that have passed. Aren't necessarily passed down to the school district's who are supposed to enforce them. What do you worry about with respect to the data collection around kids? Where I get really worried is where there's weeks security in there might be data breaches. And these aren't sort of the data breaches that we often see reported where it's you know identity theft or something like that. Instead, we see the possibility of sensitive information about someone that they just don't want future employers, their future college or even their peers or other parents to know about things like disciplinary history health issues special education status. And we know from research that the number one thing that kids care about when it comes to privacy really is that inner personal privacy Keeping their business, their Business Amelia Dances with the nonprofit future of Privacy Forum.
A Big Warning for Big Tech
"If you thought this week was tough for technology buckle up because a chart showing even more pain ahead for this sector turned mastercard or worth joins us now to break it all down Carter, what are you looking at? You Bet thanks. So I mean before we get to the charges important to say that equities are not annuities right? I mean give backs, dip selloffs corrections the they're a part of investing in. So it's always hard though to figure out how far the decline will go. Let's try to figure that out couple charts. One of five the first one you see here I thought we'd start with this. It's going back to the early nineteen nineties. It's a two panel. Chart on the top. You see the Nasdaq composite. Obviously, it's well above its dot com peak in two thousand. But what's really interesting ironic and telling the bottom panel, the Nasdaq even with all of this has not recouped its relative losses to the SNP. Since the dotcom peaks that bottom panel without circle I drunk, you still haven't made relative high, which just shows how treacherous is to buy into the top of a bubble in any event the here, and now let's go. To the next chart. So now we're looking at a chart of the Nasdaq, no judgments or annotations, and yet what you can see is a clear break in trend I've simply drawn the trend line draws itself, and what we know is we have broken trend. This is the first break of the well-defined trend line that's been in effect since the march low. So where to well take a look at the next, what we know, and this is now the percentage decline were. Down Eleven and a half percent for the Nasdaq index overall. But once you broken trend, what is your reference point of? Could it go down? Thirteen could fifty of course it good. So the next reference point look at the next chart is the January February peak from which the market broke out. We know the S. and P. of course has already gone all the way back to it's generally Feb repeat and so were the market to simply go back to the peak. Of the pre pandemic. Hi, final chart. What it would be is not an eleven and a half percent decline, which is what we've seen so far. But then we're looking at something in the order of about eighteen and so is that a possibility you bet it is. A pretty good testament to first loss. Best loss if something does crack hard, it's usually right to try to take some measures and. Even, as Jeff said, we are not oversold. Okay. So this is specifically Carter for the Nasdaq for the S. and P. Five hundred, which already said breached that pre pandemic level. Is it smoother sailing or because of the tech leadership, we're also GONNA see a decline that that mirrors this but may not be as deep. Well, that's right. So then it's a question about the markets construction we know top by stocks or twenty, five percent. We know that interestingly just before this crack, the top fifteen stocks as a wait just finally exceeded the dot com peak in ninety nine, and so the question is the Nasdaq composite down eleven percent the S. and P. Down only seven percent is there more to go. Well, if the parts composed the whole, the whole comprises the parts if the big parts have more to go the presumption is that the SNP as more nego- Carter to see you, we'll see you later on options action Carter Braxton Worthy Cornerstone Macro Jeff, males you agree with Carter in this call for a decline of eighteen and a half percent on the Nasdaq from the recent peak. Yeah I do and I think the levels he points out or a really clear in that you have the pre pandemic peak but then you also have the upward sloping two hundred day moving average if you look at the triple cues, for example so I think that would be a really natural resting point for this particular correction and I do worry about the overall market just given the weight of some of these names and because I think the rotation and the cyclicality isn't necessarily prime to take off, that may not carry the day. In terms of the broad market I, think in order for that rotation to happen, you need to see things like consumer confidence, the labor market continued to heal. You know we had this divergence between the labor market and how consumers were actually behaving because of this income replacement that is now gone. So I think the uncertainty there needs to heal a lot more before you can see that rotation and have that value cyclicality carry the market higher Steve In cars world in which this decline happens do your cyclical stocks do better than tech? So I would have agreed with Mr Mills a couple of weeks ago that all of them get pole down to General I at the same rate and velocity the general but the the issue that I'm I'm I'm looking at now is that I m seeing if you chart chemicals right now chemicals don't look so bad on their on their ETF while tech does so to the to answer your question chemicals and sickle goals will rally even with the S&P falling out of bed.
Poll: Pandemic takes toll on mental health of young adults
"A new poll says the corona virus pandemic has taken a harsh toll on the mental health of young Americans a majority of Americans ages eighteen through thirty four say they have at least sometimes felt isolated in the past month compared with about forty percent of older Americans that's according to the latest covert response tracking study conducted by NO RC at the university of Chicago twenty five percent of young adults who are going through life transitions like starting college and finding jobs rate their mental health as fair or poor compared with just thirteen percent of older adults I'm showing a blur
New York To Reopen Indoor Restaurant Dining To 25% Capacity

How To Consistently Reach Your Sales Quota
"What's up? Everybody Needs Kevin Daisy. So we are fairly new at sales as far as the station is concerned having professional. salespeople. We're about, I guess a year and a half into it I. It was Eric and I always sell in the business. then. We had a Glenn who came on about. Not, even a year and a half ago. Now, if our sales professional and we're looking to hire more so we're kind of quickly scale on this up. But we have a very basic system as far as what we're looking for. What the monthly quota is. An and they should be bringing in and it is super basic and as for me, it still works I know we might get more sophisticated as we grow in the teams grow and we have managers and things like that. But right now it's it's super basic. So interesting lay it out for you. and you can see how all this may be different than your model or if you don't have a model because you're disowned for yourself. something you can think about doing. SARS is very. Is. Five thousand dollars a month. In monthly reoccurring revenue. That's the theme here monthly reoccurring revenue five grand every month, not five gram once or twice or ten times, and then Kinda sit back. Five men every month. That's all we care about. We want those results. If you do the math on that, if you're GONNA do five grandmothers salesperson. Times twelve that sixty thousand dollars of monthly reoccurring revenue. So that means a month thirteen. We've collected sixty grand. From the clients that you've brought in as a salesperson here. At Mont Thirteen but take that that book of business. Times another twelve and that seven hundred, twenty, thousand dollars. So a very successful salesperson in their first year should be over half a million at least. And that's what looking at. That's the kind of success we need to grow this business. Now we do have ramp up period. said. You come on with us for as a salesperson which we're hiring right now as recording this for sales. There's a ramp up period so The first few months. Washington. The first four months or not one hundred percent of that. So we actually sort out with about a two week training period. A month is twenty, five percent of five grand, which is twelve fifty. Then he gets to fifty percent seventy percent and then the fourth full month. After a two week. Period you're expected to bring in five thousand in monthly recurring revenue. So right now, this is a very basic system and it works. We don't care about how many phone calls you made. We don't care about how emails you sent. I don't care if you want to network in meetings or not doesn't matter to me. It's. Can You bring in five thousand a month in New York consistently. And again, this reoccurring. So this is contacted. Using on twelve month. So, as predictable cash flow that we can count on for at least next year. So. That's really how we're building up our sales and growing the company. In if I can just hire another person and they can achieve that. Five thousand per month each. Then, we're in really good spot and we're growing very quickly. So. That's what we're trying to do again right now is very basic, but it works for us. We've had other people tell us different things and don't do like do it like this. Do like that. But for us is working out, well, we also pay salespeople a salary plus the commission net. And we do the life for that the life of the account. So. We've got a pretty good system going also the salespeople here they're not account managers. So they can build a book business and then keep building it not managing. There's accounts. Our operations team which according to the episode on that but. Operations seems takes over that relationship and the responsibility. So the salesperson continued yourself. Now, they can touch base and and reach out of the client of course, but it's not really the responsibility so. They Cabal. You know what you're tracking with sales was important for us the results, how much can you bring in per month and for us the minimum is five grand per month. And that's going to set us up for success. We were
Southwest, American, United slash fall flights: What it means
"Wherever every by Don Gilbertson In USA Today Airlines have spent the past few weeks scrubbing all flights after. Well, there was a bit of a bump in travel demand this summer Well, it's slowed down during a spike in Kobe nine thousand nine cases in several areas around the country the numbers when you look at number pretty staggering United Airlines as about two thousand daily flights on the books for September half half the number it planned a month ago this according to travel data and analytics from Oh g American Airlines planned an average of nearly fifty four hundred daily September flights down to fewer than twenty, nine hundred. South West has cut twenty five percent of its September flights or nearly seven hundred daily trips down to two thousand from a plan to thirty five hundred. So basically what this means for you is possible flight changes if you already have tickets and fewer choices, possibly higher fares. So here's some things you need to do. If you're flying this fall including the upcoming Labor, day weekend, check your reservation. All you need is your confirmation number make sure the times and even flight dates or the airport hasn't changed. You could do it online or by calling the airline or your online travel agency. If your flight has changed, re review the flights your book on and call or go online to try to find better options if those don't work and pay attention to emails that that are coming in from your airline. Sure. It could be just another pitch for fair sale or a frequent flyer credit card, but it could also be notification of an important flight change or cancellation that you might well want to be aware of. Don't wait until the day before your flight or the week of your trip to reconfirm your revoking options will be even more limited. If your flight has been changed or canceled worse, you could miss the new flight, the airline putsch on or be stuck at the airport for hours worse case scenario be prepared to shell out more money to buy a ticket on another airline. If your travel dates or times are inflexible, airlines are required to refund your money if they cancel flight or changed significantly but that might not cover the price of a ticket on another airline especially last minute finally. Build some flexibility into your travel plans and try to maintain your cool if you're buying tickets. If. You have to be at your destination by a certain date for work or school or vacation whatever the case may be don't cut it close with your flights. In case there are changes or cancellations
Fact-checking President Trump's acceptance speech at the GOP convention
"I in our history, a political convention on the South Lawn of the White House, the People's house thousands of cheering supporters on this pandemic summer night in mid August watched as donald trump among other things formally accepted his party's renomination during a long speech on this night his name. Spelled out in fireworks he followed a series of taped messages the four day Republican convention now over there is his name again. The president talked up our mortality rate tonight though in truth over thirty, five, hundred Americans have died just during. These four days as we watch this as we watched the spectacle.

D-. Brian Thank you. Mary trump is going to be joining us again. Just a moment I do want to give my colleagues here a little bit of a chance to respond to what we just saw. If I think it might be helpful if I just did like a real real quick speed read auctioneers fact check yet just in some of the top lines, we can clear those out of the way. This was more than an hour long speech by the president we think this is the second longest. Acceptance Speech ever given by an American president topped only by the other one that he gave in two thousand sixteen. There was a lot and a lot of it was wrong sense that factually wrong just to be clear a few things. There are not any approved effective lifesaving therapies for corona virus right now there are. There's a lot of hope but there is no. Proven efficacy for convalescent plasma for any other therapy despite with the president said tonight, we also don't have the testing system in the world we have a disastrously failed testing system. We also have bluntly the largest and deadliest virus epidemic. In the entire world, we have four percent of the world's population and twenty five percent of the world's deaths. When the president said tonight, we have pioneered the fatality rate said that wrong? I don't he was blundering there, but he might have been correct in that blender. Joe. Biden.

In the United States Joe Biden will not bulldoze the suburbs This talk about pre existing conditions in the weather and people can get healthcare. The Republican Party in the trump administration explicitly is in court right now, fighting to abolish the protections for people with preexisting conditions that were part of the affordable care act. That's going to be before the Supreme Court exactly one week after the election on November tenth, they are fighting to abolish protections for people with preexisting conditions also last but not least. President said tonight if for those of you who still drive have you looked at your gasoline bill have you noticed how low it is for those of us who do actually drive you don't get a bill for your gasoline.

Pandemic Nesters Are Driving a Renovation Retail Boom
"You to join me for a trip down memory lane back to the early days of the pandemic all the way back in late April stay home orders were widespread. Many businesses were closed. Remote workers were in the middle of Zoom boom and a Harvard. University report predicted that spending on home remodeling was going to drop like a stone. Oh. How wrong they were turns out as people spent more time at home. They got sick of their surroundings and they decided to do something about it since homeowners weren't spending money on movies, restaurants or vacations for the most part they began pouring those extra dollars into home improvements think hot tubs, patios decks. June demand for outdoor remodeling professionals was up nearly sixty percent over the previous year. So says, Home Improvement Platform House requests for estimates from kitchen and bath makeovers was up about forty percent. Among the beneficiaries of this domestic spending shift were home improvement giants Home Depot and Lowe's since hardware stores are considered essential businesses. They've never had to close their doors and customers kept walking through them on mass in their respective earnings calls. Last week, both retailers demolished already optimistic expectations. Home. Depot. Second. Quarter revenue jumped nearly twenty five percent over last year lows had even better news with a thirty percent spike in sales. Lows bigger bump is attributed to its customer makeup which includes slightly more do it yourself remodelers. They're the people who see a blank wall either WANNA tear it down or paint a mural on it. Diy. remodelers have been a big driver of the home improvement trend according to the Wall Street Journal analysts say lows has done a better job appealing to these can-do consumers. A recent marketing campaign featured a cast member from the Netflix's hit queer eye. But Home Depot has been more successful in courting contractors and boy. They've been busy lately as remote workers leave their tiny city apartments in search of open spaces they're finding suburban homes with small mortgage rates and big renovation needs the type you need professional help for. The home improvement retailers have taken different approaches to respond to demand to home depot is opening three new distribution centers in its home state of Georgia. Over the next eighteen months, the center will support growing demand for flexible delivery and pickup options for both professional and diy customers. The company said in a statement lows on the other hand is going for a more distributed approach within two years. It plans on opening fifty delivery terminals, seven distribution centers, and for e commerce fulfillment. Centers. Lows is betting that smaller centres play strategically around the country will help get products to its hammer-wielding homeowners faster giving the retailer and edge over its big orange rival, and it looks like both companies new facilities will be put to good use the people buying building and renovating homes tend to be higher income analysts say and with no Covid nineteen vaccine or cure likely through at least the end of this year analysts believe people will continue to spend more and more money. On creating the home of their dreams, one job and tile installation. That's nine.
2020 Ruby on Rails Community Survey with Robby Russell
"Today will dig into the results of the twenty twenty ruby on rails community survey. So. Robby. Great to have you back and I'd love to start off by asking you why planet Argonne conducts the survey. Questions. So when I have to answer every few years, even to my own employees, like why are we doing this and so the the origin story isn't the first several years of employees, Plato Oregon being a part of the ecosystem we part of our service offerings was hosting for rebels, applications and. So two thousand I think it was two thousand eight to give or take we. We were we were realizing that we're lagging kind of investing and keeping up with some of the new ways of how servers and such were being managed how applications would be deployed, and so we really let's write a survey of the community to get a sense of how people were currently hosting how much they're spending on hosting and what versions of rails. They're using a bunch of other little tidbits related to that. So that kind of like help and we promise that we would share all the results of everybody minus everybody's email address. So that way we could be okay. Here's kind of like the state of the industry when it comes to deploying rail. So that was our first version of that survey and through. That survey admittedly, we realize, okay, we're way behind on a number of these kind of advancements in the deployment world. So we ended up saying we're going to basically kill off our hosting part of our business and we ended up selling that to another organization in we're just GONNA focus on coding related projects and consultative services there. So that's how it started. and. So two years later like Oh, let's do it again but we're going to modify to be a little bit more inclusive, just the broader community and we got rid of some of the questions related. We still keep that in their some of that in there, but we don't get into like budgets in the same way we used to we done so became. There weren't really any other surveys around the time that were really pulling the rails community to kind of get a sense of Persian rails you're running and how large is your team, and where are you and what gems are you relying on and which ones are frustrating to work with in what's keeping like, what are some of the challenges your teams having, and so it's became a thing. We started running every two years so that we could then share back with the community. And just to kind of get a pulse on where things were moving which tools. Use things in their related to what database servers you're using. And we can see trends over the years like their their services if you go. Over that time you could also, you can put the new survey results. You know you can go back to two thousand nine and compare every couple years and see that there are services that existed back. Then the no longer exists and nobody's using there's also scenarios where like I one point say squall was largely the most popular database in the community, and now it's completely flipped around where post grass is the most popular and I have some I understand why that's happened but. It's interesting to kind of see those trends over the over the years, and so it's more of a curiosity that we have in a way that we can every couple of years interact with the community and and kind of like catch up on a few different ways than than share that information back with the community again. Well. I. Think it's a fantastic project. You do a really great job of gathering the data and then turning around and displaying a very nice site in order to view that data. Of course, we will link all this in the show notes and listeners I suggest pausing the episode and reading over the results, and then we are going to dig into some surprises that I came across. A lot of the results were what I expected as Robbie noted post Gretzky while continues to dominate. The defacto performance monitoring tool and the folks that did take the survey which was over two thousand people wholeheartedly agreed that raises their server side framework of choice. So, for the one question, you are primarily building monoliths are micro services twenty five percent answered hybrid. and. So Robby, what circumstance would you take hybrid approach? So? That's a good one the. I'm always curious about. Work in the consulting world where we inherit and work on a lot of other people's projects and so quite often most rails applications likely unless they've started maybe in the last five take years. Are Likely to start off in kind of a Monolithic Forum. In Oh, let's move into a more of a micro services approached and so they start maybe. Breaking off pieces of it that way so I think it's it's. Just inherent in the kind of well, we WANNA start experimenting with micro services. So here's a segment of our application. We're GONNA break off. Move into do micro service. So I think that's that's how that comes about. You know I don't know if the I don't know what I expected. The numbers look like they're. In some ways I think I'm surprised that bashing maybe more not the more common answer like a higher number in some ways but. It's but I don't. I can't speak for everybody but it's kind of like my theories because a lot of evolution of iterating on an existing application like, okay. How do we start moving in this direction and then whether they're going to go like full micro services or Ni-, you know basically like strip back the core part of the application what have you but. I think that's someone of my theory
How the Pandemic Is Creating an Odd Boom in Real Estate
"The pandemic is creating this odd boom in real estate. I'm David Brancaccio people lucky enough to keep their jobs during this pandemic seemed to be pondering their living situations a lot. The quarterly sales reporter by home. Depot today were up twenty five percent year-on-year increase double what was expected, and there's news that builders started work on a lot of new single family homes. Last month up twenty three percent Jeffrey Cleveland is the chief economist at the Investment Company Payden and Regal in Los. Angeles Good Morning Good Morning, David I mean you look at this new home data and you want a statistic. Leading Economic Indicators. Which sometimes, it is during normal times. But how much can we draw about the wider economy? What kind of conclusions can we draw about the wider economy based on construction of new homes? The reason why that tells us a lot about the economy is because housing is tied in to the web of the economy. So you know intimately there's employment they're spending the goes into a new home activity, and so you tend to see good sales data as well. I think in part that's why we are seeing retail sales bounce in recent months in sympathy with the housing data. Also things like spending at Home Depot, which we're hearing was topping expectations here for the second quarter. There's an inequality angle though because if you're have the wherewithal during pandemic to think about buying a new house so that the developers get all excited about building new homes. I mean, that's some people in this economy, but others are renters and the living more tenuously. WELL WE S-. We saw yesterday data on mortgage delinquencies switcher starting to creep up. But I am worried David that one of the things fueling all this. It's made this recession unique is the federal. Relief payments that went out really through the months of April May June July big chunk of that ended in. July and as yet it's unclear how or when that will be extended and I and I think that you know leaves question marks for the durability of this
Despite the Pandemic, Airbnb Will Take the Company Public
"I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business worse daily on this Tuesday August Eighteenth David Brown is on vacation. There's no other way to say, this twenty twenty is a weird year and yeah, that's a whopping understatement particularly for the travel sector, the latest news and the beleaguered lodging industry. It looks like AIRBNB will go public before the end of the year. The multibillion dollar home sharing company has long been eyeing the public markets. Early, this year AIRBNB was planning its IPO even though twenty nineteen. had been a rough year to in the first nine months of that year and the company lost more than three hundred and thirty million dollars growth was slowing competition already rough was increasing from aggressive rival Expedia, which owns short term rental brands. We are be O- and home away as we reported here, last year the entry of Marriott into the luxury home sharing business didn't help either. When the pandemic hit things took a dramatic turn for the worse the company faced a Billion Dollars in cancellations its valuation dropped from thirty one, billion dollars in twenty seventeen to eighteen billion dollars. This April, the next month airbnb laid off. Two, hundred people a quarter of its staff. It also slowed down plans to expand into TV and transportation the verge reported. Things were looking dire enough that even though it had plenty of cash on hand airbnb chose to borrow money and take on new investment to get through the crisis in total. The company raised two billion dollars at what the verge called. The steep interest rate top executives cut their pay and the eight hundred million dollar marketing budget was slashed the New York Times reported. It all seemed like one gigantic headache I say O'Brien Chessy in his crew. And yet AIRBNB still plans to go public by the end of August. AIRBNB could file IPO paperwork with the SEC if it does shares could trade before New Year's. At first glance that sounds crazy. But it actually reflects a little good news for the travel business along with some dramatically new patterns of travel behavior both here and abroad what do I mean? We'll think about it if you were stuck in the middle of a crowded city, this spring or summer working at your dining room table, would you stay put? Beginning in May a certain number of US said Hell? No. They had a Derulo areas where they could rent other people's homes, AIRBNB bookings, both in America and overseas began climbing back from their black hole for the three weeks starting around Memorial Day vacationers reserved twenty percent more homes than they did a year earlier according to Bloomberg business was best far from the madding crowds in.

There is something I never would have imagined telling you the New York Times reported a kind of defies logic, but in June reservations also grew at rival Vr be oh, the Motley fool reported. Optimists see these numbers as a sign of life for the travel industry as a whole but predicting the future of travel right now is best left to gambling halls AIRBNB is fortunes could change suddenly depending on the course of

G. as a mainstream economic theory even Democrats like Larry summers no this is crazy but here's a short version of it public that doesn't matter can be anything can be anything you want to be the only thing you have to worry about with public debt is inflation and all you have to do is monitor inflation as you spend and find ways to combat inflation specific to whatever because that inflation now some you're gonna say well hold on a second there are some huge what ifs or ifs and and and how to's and all that who says that once inflation starts you'll be able to stop it and especially if the inflation is the result of a government decision an active decision is to say we can spend whatever we think we need to spend this is in part what brought down I mean I I don't like you always make the Venezuela comparison but this is in part what brought down Venezuela and Venezuela under Chavez from nineteen ninety nine to what twenty twelve when he was in charge as they just spend and spend and spend people like it the poor people like a lot of spending a lot of public spending then you had a couple things happened you had the oil prices drop which also meant that the four in a foreign currency reserves in Venezuela dropped mentor overall economic pictured a lot worse because they had just had less revenue and then they decided well we have public we are now public death we can't pay so let's just start and let's just start printing dollars or in their case printing Bali farce well guess what happens in the global currency market say hold on a second now you're making our money now we're not gonna let you make our money work less this is not good and then they say oh no no no we're just gonna keep we're going to inflate the dollar we're conflate the debt away well then you get to inflation that turns into hyperinflation which just means a really really bad inflation the currency becomes worthless people with savings office I'd have no savings the poor have no buying power whatsoever and you have red lines and just pandemonium on the streets which is exactly what you have as well now modern monetary theorists in this country on the left the progressives that are pushing this would say that can happen to us because America on like Venezuela is the global reserve currency okay let's just play this out for a moment that's true right now is it always going to be true what happens when Democrats if they get in charge and implement MMT which I think they well they'll just say that they don't even care that is anymore they'll spend whatever they think needs to be spent and then just the monitor inflation along the way so that it does say we're not gonna spend we're not gonna triple the national debt the year but we don't have to worry if it's not a concern you don't ever have to pay it down you can just keep running the debt higher and higher and higher as long as you do it in a controlled way that's modern monetary theory doesn't matter there's no downside to this okay what happens when it becomes clear that that's the official policy of United States government and then all the sudden other countries say you know what we're gonna start buying our wish you're buying oil in renminbi or what have the people say oh I'm gonna start putting my assets into cryptocurrency what happens when we're not the reserve currency anymore this is how governments fall this is how economies collapse this is how entire had your minds are brought to their knees and it is an active policy promoted by Democrats now modern monetary theory if you Google is exact I'm talking about this is what a see this is what Bernie in Warren what they want to do come up with a framework and economic theory that the government can spend whatever wants to spend as long as it pays attention as IT spending this could destroy absolutely destroy the US economy and I don't mean a recession I mean done collapse finished Democrats are recently in bracing the state the starlight lounge for an evening the question yeah I've got no secrets and no regrets well the letter addressed but the point is I got nothing to hide kind of like the way progressive shows you their competitors rates put it all out excuse me miss this hard belong to you July situations prices vary based on how you buy higher fox news Richard.

"Products that are made elsewhere it means we're not making them here everybody gets that i think but you know i also think just putting changing this tariff situation first of all the big fear is that it's going to start a trade war and by the way that's already happening because china has already responded and said you wanna levy fifty billion dollars worth of penalties on us tariffs on us we're going to do it back to you and there are industries here and this is the problem it's not like you saw the car we sell you a car that's the example trump actually gave yesterday we try to send a harvard china they charge a twenty five percent tariff they sent to us we only t percent but that's not really how it is it's like they send us widgets and we send them soybeans so these are different industries that are being impacted right so i if china implements a tariff on soybeans which is exactly what they're doing that is going to really hurt farming in america not manufacturing but farming right so so these are very complex issues and to just levy these tariffs is dangerous potentially could be even worse and by the way i think all of this is going to lead to inflation in this country we're already looking at inflation the federal just raised the rates are going to do it already said again a soon and if if we are levying these tariffs the cost of goods is going to go up there for the things we buy are going to be more expensive therefore all of this money that's coming into the economy via tax reform that's supposed to help our paychecks isn't really going to help us because our goods are going to be more expensive so it's very very very complicated staff and i feel like trump is going.
