Is Racism in America Causing the High Rate of Black Fatherlessness?

"The moment that we all of a sudden de-emphasized fathers being in the home and subsidized fatherless-ness. We saw all these other trends increase so in the one thousand nine right before the civil rights act passed about twenty four percent of black children. Were born without a father. Now it's upwards of seventy percent you guys can look at the washington examiner. It's seventy seven percent. Let's say it's sixty five percent so something has to explain that forty point increase back yet. Just let me finish yet. And and it's not necessarily that. America got more racist. It could be the cocaine thing which you know is a common issue. It could be operations of all these things. But a forty point increase. I would point to a culture. Fatherless-ness really bad government run public schools and then subsidizing behavior. That isn't good so there are a few things that i can agree with you. On first of all having to people in your house to raise you pretty essential You absolutely this is undeniable While i don't believe in shaming single parents even if they're single parent did mrs bad decision making. It's still good you need. It's up in this economy one parent honestly but with that being said there has been research shown that the rate of black fatherless-ness is somewhat over exaggerated in large part because that number only applies to married fathers so husbands raising their children. It turns out when you account for unmarried. Black couples taking care of their kids. The numbers actually rise to those just think just below white couples. I think there was an article on that. I don't know if i remember sought advice but attracts back. Some really big study. That was done back in two thousand sixteen So that's one point but you are right. There are perverse incentives for example Many welfare Stipulations cut off With a shared income which is only a few thousand dollars per year higher than the necessary. Cutoff for the single income. Meaning that if you're a single mom You can apply for the welfare just fine but then if you get married or otherwise file jointly you get you go above the cap for welfare. This is a horribly program undeniably ended incentivizes bad destructive

Q2-2021 Biotech Earnings, Commercial-Stage Biotech Suffers

"And the first company. I want to talk about is by jin which is a real favorite of mine ticker symbol b. I believe and they're sitting at a fifty billion dollar market cap and what we heard is that they announced q to revenue of two point. Seven eight billion dollars and this is compared to twenty twenty cutie revenue of three point six eight billion so huge decline there and that is mostly due to a decrease in their ms revenue of twenty four percent year over year. And if you remember. When i went through the biogen episode i did. The majority of their revenue comes from their ms franchise and since the lawsuit against by jin was in favor of the generic companies including mylan they have launched generic versions of tech der which are now at risk because by genus filed an appeal. And what this means is that these generic companies are going to be able to sell their generic version of tech era at the risk of biogen winning on appeal in which case Going to be able to litigate against them for patent infringement. So during this time at which we don't know what the status of the appeal is gonna be biden's gonna start losing. Ms franchise market share pretty quickly to these generic companies. So we're starting to see this now with these abysmal. M s numbers now. The company did increase their guidance for the rest of the fiscal year. Only by about two hundred to three hundred million dollars so not a huge amount but they said that. This is due to better-than-expected ms sales. So who knows what's going on there but really the bulk of the call was the excitement around the addy home commercialization efforts and now just to say the amount of home revenue was only like one or two million dollars so very much a drop in the pan not very impressive so far. But it's because all of these infrastructure efforts need to take place in order to get hospitals up and running in order to treat patients

Los Angeles Pilots Program to Try 'Colorblind' Foster Care Decisions

"Los angeles department of child and family services is launching a pilot program called blind removal. Now this is the government agency that deals with child welfare issues. Dcfs is the government agency that also makes decisions about whether or not a child should be removed from home Based on the safety of that household. Now i i wanna tell you more about this blind removal pilot program because what it has to do with is the overrepresentation of children of color within the foster care system meaning the children who are typically removed from these households happen to have parents who are black or latino and it looks as though there might be issues with some implicit bias in the decisions that are made so blind. Removal is Meant to take the race component out of it as social workers are deliberating in regard to whether or not they remove a child from a home. So i wanna tell you how the numbers look right now so you can understand why this is a problem. So for instance. Seven percent of children in los angeles county are black while twenty four percent of those removed from their homes from last april to this march were black according to the la county department of children and family services. Twenty percent of children in the county are white with twelve percent of those removed. So as you can see there's an overrepresentation of black children. Being taken out of their household moved out of their households now. Three quarters of children removed from their homes in la. Two thousand twenty. Where either black. Or latino

Goldman Sachs way off in PC expectations, consumer and commercial sales up

"There's misreading the numbers then. There's yesterday's note from goldman sachs analyst rod hall. He and his missed expectations in the december quarter by a lot missing march. Twenty twenty four missing in june. Okay missing in september fine but the amount he missed nine months into the pandemic look. I'm not saying i could do it. But i'm also not getting paid. Who knows how many tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars to do it. Apple's read auto in part of a note whole wrote according to his firm's data. Pc shipments for the december quarter hit eighty nine point seven million units up twenty six percent year on year beating the bank's expectation by twenty one percent consumer side sales. Were up twenty. Seven percent beating their expectation by eighteen commercial. Sales were up. Twenty five percent beating their expectation by twenty four percent while he's apparently good at being wrong about computers. in general. We've come to know hall over the past couple of years for being wrong about apple in particular. Didn't used to be that way. Not sure what changed whatever it was. He doesn't appear to be changing back quoting his note. Apple rose thirty five percent year on year. End up with the sheriff fifteen percent up. One percentage point year-on-year that we note that. I'm wanting max where likely in short supply in the corridor. Quoting another part of his note. Hp lost share due to supply constraints while apple grew slightly faster than the market driven. In part by. Its new am one. Max looking ahead. We expect this general p strength to persist in the first half but we can in the second half driven by reopening as well as tougher compares to be fair hall said basically the same thing in a note back in december still do atypically typically apple three dot did not list halls rating and price target on apple shares. The last mentioned the boat was in the wake of apple's last call when hall stuck to his cell rating on apple shares. He did up as priced at that time. Though from eighty dollars to eighty three dollars since then shares have gotten as high as one hundred thirty seven dollars though. They've spent most of their time in the one hundred.

It's like the reverse of that. Nature is healing thing as for iphone. Those numbers are relatively consistent. In fact those are his words tip.

This is our first recording. You and i in the in twenty twenty one. Yeah it's going to be Should be really interesting year. I we it has to be different. I don't know better but it has to be something has to change. I'm i'm really hoping for better and speaking of changes you're talking about that today a little bit. We're going to talk a little bit today about Proposed changes under the new administration and things that people ought to be thinking about nassir panicking about yet but just thinking about because of the lightning what we could see some changes dealing with the last couple of years all right and what kind of changes are we talking about specifically today. Well there's there's kind of a basset of multiple different ones. We've you may or may not have heard about the we're going to be seen some increases in taxes or some individuals and some of that depends on what happens with the so called trump tax break of twenty eighteen. One of the things have benefited everybody. That was included in there was a was the twelve percent tax bracket and that's been really beneficial to absolutely everybody who pays taxes and they're talking about on reversing those trump those tax bills. Which would mean that all of us. Potentially you know three percent more in taxes. Ghana still up on. These things are all in the air. But that's one of the first things we look at. We started talking about. How is this going to affect all of our clients in general or just individuals in general taxes. And that's the first thing that i was thinking about the other. Now that we know where georgia falls is that we could potentially be seeing other attached changes that can affect how you've been planning for your retirement or for the passing of your assets the next generation one of the ones that i am most interested in keeping an eye on for our clients is somewhat People either they've heard about it. They have no idea how this works. And it's called a step up in basis that you heard of this before i have but i don't quite understand all of it okay. So let's start with that with the basic idea. Let's say that Your parents bought calf dozen stocks in the sixties. And and they've held them ever since then. Well if your parents died in leave you those stocks you might be able you would be able to today. Turn around and sell those and pay no taxes on the gain you know. Maybe it's a million dollars with the gains okay. Yeah yeah yeah so i. If my parents were to sell them they'd have to pay yet. But if i if i inherit them then i don't that's correct. Well okay. that sounds good basis and you imagine people who are retired been retired for a while. who have some of these positions stock positions. If up well hail hold onto it. And if i die owning my kids will have to pay taxes on part of their narrates not a bad strategy. If you didn't need the money yeah problem now is all we're doing now is kicking the can down the road because if that does get refilled and that is really high on the list That can change. How you're going. You know how you plan on passing those assets so the kids. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah yeah and i was gonna say it seems to be almost a double edged sword there. Because if you're saying that they may change that and then if i in twenty years let's say i passed these stocks down to my kids and they have to pay taxes on them. We've we've already kind of seen the writing on the wall. That taxes are most likely going to be higher because we have to pay for all the debt that happened this last year with kobe. The relief and everything else in the trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars so that really changes the game not only does it bring those taxes back it. they'll probably higher. Don't you think absolutely. Oh boy i had this conversation with one of my clients In december and and in that situation they had About two million dollars in capital gains. And what was trying to get him. Understand was the taxes weren't going to get any cheaper and and we were better off to take the beating at which is approximately twenty four for them would have been about twenty four percent in taxes taxes any real by the stocks back but if pay taxes on it because it won't be cheaper in four years to pay the taxes mondo stocks if the gains continued to go. So it's it's a lot more complex than than just the the idea that you're right. It's going to get more experience so we know it is. It has to yeah not even last year. I mean we've been we've been spending money like drunken sailors for

New York City Covid Vaccine Disparities Revealed in ZIP Code Data

New York City Covid Vaccine Disparities Revealed in ZIP Code Data

"One of the big challenges in distributing the coach vaccine is trying to ensure that they don't disproportionally go to the most communities and as more people get vaccinated in the united states. We're getting more and more data about who's getting their shots. I and the data coming out of cities is well. It's painting a fairly consistent picture in the neighborhoods with the highest death rates from cova which tend to be poorer and more black and brown folks. Fewer people are getting vaccinated by contrast in wider more affluent neighborhoods. Vaccination rates tend to be higher even though a smaller percentage of people in those neighborhoods have lost their lives the virus. So here's an example map in new york city. We have data by zip code there. We should note. The same dynamic has also played out in washington. Dc and other cities so in this section of manhattan's upper east side. That's a wealthy neighborhood. There have been one hundred sixty six deaths from covid per hundred thousand people so far in that zip code sixteen percent of adults vaccinate which is great. That's good we want people to be back but now let's look at say brooklyn's east new york neighborhood much much poor much much much less white in that soco there have been a staggering eight hundred and thirty seven deaths per one hundred thousand people. Think about that. It has been hit so so much harder by the virus but in that neighborhood only five percent of adults have been fully vaccinated compared to the sixteen percent of the upper east side. Now the city not breakdown vaccine recipients by race or account for the percentage of people in a given zip code were eligible but again the broad picture. Here's pretty clear. See playing out across the city and across the country in fact in some poor neighborhoods. Only two percent of adults are fully vaccinated. Well vaccination rates are fourteen fifteen sixteen percent and richer neighborhoods. This is a huge in central problem to solve and discuss it on join. Shell gave stolberg new york times. Washington correspondent covering health policy has been writing about the vaccine rollout specifically so let's just start with the phenomenon. I want to sort of check against myself here that this is something that's happening. That's showing up data that is being produced around the country. It's not just a particularity of new york. No no this is absolutely happening around the country and you can see it in the cdc's national data. I think nationally last week African americans who account for more than eighteen percent of the population were eleven percent of those vaccinated. And we're seeing in disparities around the country here in washington where i am We had a situation where people from wealthy white neighborhoods were going into black neighborhoods to go to clinics that primarily serve underserved people to get vaccinated and it is creating a real disparity and it is completely contradictory to what president biden has said he wants which is a vaccine and a covid response that is centered on racial equity. So there it seems that there's a few factors at play here for why this is a it seems to me that there's a demand issue right is sort of people's willingness and i think we can get to that later. The first thing just seems to me it's one of those situations where a certain amount of social capital connections time or resources to other people to go through the logistics of the planning and the websites use tending to advantage. More affluent. folks is. That is that sort of your understanding of what's driving this yes. I think there's two things that are driving it in one is exactly what you say. Which is more apple and people tend to have the resources to the computers savvy the time frankly transportation to be able to get vaccinated but another big reasons vaccine heston san. We know that people of color particularly african americans are more hesitant than whites to be vaccinated in part because of the legacy of systemic racism and Government experiments like the horrific experiment that still linger in the mind. So there is that issue of hesitancy that the government is going to have to overcome. It wants to see people of color vaccinated. Yeah this is a december pull from. Ap now that's this is know almost two months old now but we we saw huge has seen the beginning huge racial disparity in terms of folks. You know fifty three percent of white people saying they're gonna get vaccinated while in twenty four percent of black folks thirty four percent of hispanic hispanic respondents now. Those numbers have changed a little bit. Even though there are still racial disparities out there examples of places where this is being dealt with forthrightly in a way that is that is sort of reintroducing a kind of equity here well i think that's hard to know in one reason that's hard to know is that the government doesn't really have great data on race the people who are vaccinated but more broadly one of the states. That is actually a really good job. Back stating across the board is west. Virginia and it has back stated i think eighty three percent of its vaccines have been administered in. It's far ahead of most states in terms of effective and quick backseat distribution.

"From the lego movie. Because we've got three stocks that are headed higher today and we're going to start with twitter. Shares of twitter up eight percents. Fourth quarter revenue was higher than expected. We can get into sort of guidance and where this company is going in two thousand twenty one and beyond but what did you think of the fourth quarter. What stood out to you. Yeah i mean. It was a really impressive fourth quarter. I'm sorry as always. There's some background noise. It's like the world when i'm recording. Something at to be loud behind me. So i'm sorry about that but like new york city that surprising that there would be back. There are always right next to my window but that the fourth quarter was really impressive. They're revenue was one point. Three billion up twenty twenty seven percent. It was actually Their highest ever in a quarter their global there was this broad-based recovery in advertising revenue their. Us revenue was up twenty four percent. They're international revenue was up thirty four percent. They're japan which is actually their second largest market. Their revenue was up twenty six percent to fourteen percent of total revenue and so that all kind of reminded the investors of twitter. How global this platform is jack. Dorsey made appointed statement without naming. Any names saying no. The platform is much larger than anyone topic or anyone account. Eighty percent of the audience is outside of the us. There are many accounts with over twenty five million followers so strengthen this quarter i think just reiterated to followers on twitter and people who are investors that such a global platform and that. It has a lot of room to grow in. It's going to keep growing hopefully and in terms of the stock performance. It's up it's up today. It's up over the past year about eighty percent. You and i were chatting Earlier today and when we were talking about twitter and one of the things i said was twitter just seems like one of those companies. That can't get on a hot streak. They really can't string together. Three or four or more Really great strong quarterly reports in a row. The performance over the past year sort of goes against you know what i just said. But how optimistic do you think. Shareholders should be about twenty twenty one. I think twitter is really interesting because we have seen you know a return with advertisers. You see that. Advertisers are choosing to spend money on ecommerce on social platforms. That's where they're going to get the best return on their advertising dollars and so. I think that we haven't really figured out where twitter is in how effective it is for advertisers and users. You know it's clear when you're on instagram. You could be shopping for clothes when you're on pinterest. You should could be shopping for home decor. I think it's hard for people to make a clear connection between people who are scrolling through politics twitter to know you know. What are you now buying. And so for an advertiser. What is the of being on this specific platform versus many other platforms. And i think you know that's what we need to keep looking for an understanding four when it comes to twitter as why do advertisers need to go to that platform and it's

Job postings were remote work from home twenty nineteen there is a pretty big jump even from two thousand eighteen to twenty nineteen to fifteen percent but it was a significant drone from twenty nineteen at twenty twenty. After the pandemic i started it went from fifteen percent to twenty two percent so pretty considerable portion of it job types being worked from home or remote and from member bowls that we've run looks like the majority are considering even going forward still more employees to work remotely. I think that's fairly significant. If more than one out of every five. It jobs a rope from home right now. That's it the the ones being advertised. I should clarify that. Not just the ones in the market but also the ones being advertised that are open for people to get major changes l. Go back to how employees work and access. It wherever it may be from 'cause with that through cyber security concerns Data management in the skills that the. It employees intern need to be able to support all employees because of the effects of the pandemic last year we did see a majority of our member firms. Most of them are technology companies. They were going to continue to invest in technical training for their employees. In some of the top areas there were cybersecurity that was a top area. Sixty four percent of our own member companies. We're going to focus training efforts and cyber security cloud infrastructure and cloud locations technical. It support were the top areas. Were they can expect to see training support for employees. That's good to hear from the members especially because we do our own custom training program with amazon so they do a really good Career program for their own employees where they help pay for the tuition for them to get trained by. Come to you so that they can move from maybe the warehouse floor into. It jobs either. Four amazon or for other companies. Whichever works best for them. We always tell our graduates allowed him to be start on the help desk. You're gonna learn a lot of places where to go with intact but at that point then alive the more forward thinking employers and especially i would hope. It employers would be in that list. They'll help you get the certifications and the training you need in order to keep growing in your career. So it's good to see a lot of our own member. Companies are taking that same philosophy. Yes definitely a lot of different areas to grow into depending on your interest especially Various emerging technologies or save working for a different type of industry. You can really go after what you're interested. In business. intelligence data analysis networking there are gray salary opportunities for someone working in tech or wanting to move into a tuck position for example.

Preparing for Core Web Vitals with Kathy Brown & Karl Kleinschmidt

"Kathy let me start off with you. Gimme the update in the lay of the land. Where do we stand in terms of the out of core web vitals. So you got it exactly right. We are anticipating that the core web vitals will roll out in may twenty twenty one. And it's going to be part of the larger page. Experience ranking factor that ragging factor includes lots of other ranking factors. That are already employ such as https mobile friendly and penalizing intrusive ads in mobile. But what's new is the core web vitals of course so most of our clients are busy looking at their google search console. Report to see what. Google is telling them the corwin i need to focus on and make better and yeah we're just waiting to make better and waiting for the rollout in may so interesting to me about core web vitals. It is really the start of google talking a little bit about what their ranking factors are not specifically from a content ranking but from a technical perspective when we think about what core web vital actually are. Help me break down the difference between the core web vitals. We're talking a lot of detail about what each individual acronym means but overall what our core web vitals. What's the utility for them. Yeah the other thing. I wanted to mention is. It's kind of unusual for google to pre-announce changes. I mean usually we have these four updates or changes at gonna get just roll out or we don't get a lot of notice about the with the vitals we've gotten almost a year's advance notice or where vital so that may give you a clue on how important google thinks. These are the core web vitals. As i mentioned are part of an aggregate raqi factor called page experience. And one thing. I think is kind of interesting as we know. Google has been telling us like you need. Make your pages more performance. They need to be faster. A lot of people listening to this podcast probably know about sap which is the first content full paint so you need to get something on the screen fast or your user will abandon your side and never come back. What i find interesting about. Page experience in the core web vitals is that it's not just about speed it's also about. The experience of the page. Does the page jump around. Does the page respond input and in fact. That is the three core web vitals. There's largest tempur paint which is a measure of one. Something meaningful appears on page. There's f. i d. Which is i input delay. And that's a measure of how quickly the page response to any input. Like a click. Or scroll and then finally we have cunard layout shift which is a measure of how much the page jumps around as rendering. So it's almost like a more holistic view of the page experience and not just about speed but it's also about having pleasing experience as you get the page loaded and interact with it. I think it's also important to say that a lot of your user experience and or technical staff of bharati heard of these terms in the past and maybe are already tracking them before this was announced. But there's a lot of little intricacy to worry about with how google is calculating them that you wanna be careful to take into consideration so that you don't rely on non google definitions of those terms one of the things that i took away from some of google's announcements last year and the rollout of core web vitals that they are actually talking about what their ranking factors are. Carl as you mention. Google is essentially assigning values to how they're figuring out what they consider to be a good page experience. It's one of the most important ranking factors that at least they've publicly stated and there's https and some of the security protocols and some of the other things that google on the technical side of said. This is how we evaluate pages. Kathy you also mentioned that. Normally they don't give us an advance notification of when something is rolling out normally they roll it out and then tell us to me the separation of church and state here is when it's a content ranking factor. How do we figure out whether something is relevant to the audience. We're going to do it and then tell you when it is a tactical ranking factor. They give us a little bit more notice so that brings us to the conversation about making the business case. What the business. Impact of the rollout of core web vitals. We know that some of our clients are having a pretty easy time of getting the organization to focus on some of these court web vitals and with some of other clients or some other organizations. We've talked to. They've had to beat the drums a little bit to get upper management or other departments to really pay attention because it takes a while to really diagnose problems with your poor web vitals not like updating a title tag. It's definitely more involved than that. When i think core web vitals. I know it's kind of in the seo bucket because google made the announcement and it definitely is going to impact your ranking. But it really shouldn't be thought of just benefiting seo a pleasing page experience at loads quickly response to input and doesn't visually jump around is good for everything. It's good for your conversions. It's good for your bounce rate. And if i'm in an oral at have to help make the case for allocating the appropriate vestment for working core web vitals. Those are the arguments. I would make and google's actually published quite a bit of studies as well as some of the science had behind the four webb vitals. One of the comments. I'm going to quote this directly out of the google article. We found that when a site needs the above thresholds in these thresholds. They given us for the poor web. Vitals users are twenty four percent less likely to abandon page loads by leaving the page before any content has been painted. So it's just not an seo thing to be good for your conversions. It's going to be good for people not abandoning shopping hearts. So i think that's the business case you really need to make mean yes. Of course we all want higher rankings but it is all about making the experience so good that all your other core. Kpi's are gonna benefit as well. And i think if you have a department they're gonna be your best friends in selling the impact of it. They're going to have very very similar goals to what you want to accomplish. So i would definitely get together with them to make sure that you explained from an seo perspective and most of the time they're going to agree with you and that you can join forces to sell it. I think the business impact here is. There are potential ranking impacts. That are going to be significant. That google has said a year in advance. These are the metrics that were going to be evaluating for some of our technical ranking factors. If this was not important. Google would not have given us so much. Lead time to be able to optimize our site for these metrics. They pulled his was going to happen. They provided the metrics. And now they're actually giving a general sense of the timeline of when it's going to roll out my feeling is that this is gonna be something that will heavily impact. Seo performance. I think that the case that you to have mentioned is hey. This is good for the overall experience. This is going to impact business performance and we should take it seriously because google has given the search community a long time a long leash a lot of leeway to be able to implement changes to optimize towards these metrics. Am i wrong to think that this is going to be a big deal when it rolls out of any sense of the type of impact that core web vitals might have when it actually comes alive to market well. Of course the big hundred thousand dollar question is how much impact will either good or poor core. We're vitals. i think it's important to just make the point. That content is still important. I mean if you're pages not a great match for the searcher intent and it doesn't satisfy the surge even if you have great core web vitals you still going to struggle but there are plenty of market and niches especially like an ecommerce where the differentiation between the different pages is not that big and at that point. Google's got to pick someone to rank in position one and if most the pages are just product pages and they're kind of similar you can bat that four by bills will have an impact on who makes it into position one.

"Who said they don't believe the campaign was spied on thirty five percent. Said they don't know or have no opinion about it. Now the spying allegations were raised last week by bar during congressional testimony. When he said he thought spying did occur on the president's twenty sixteen campaign. And you would as you would guess I mean the breakdown here. Is partisan. Fifty seven percent of Republicans think the Trump campaign was by twenty four percent of Democrats believe the Trump campaign was spied on. Now, there is evidence that there was spying. The first one is the FIFA warrant and the three times it was renewed. Law enforcement surveillance can also be described spying. But when the department of Justice applies for warrant, that's that's not it's not a law enforcement activity. It's counter intelligence counter, espionage. Which is a necessary activity, but. To conduct it on an American citizen. They weren't investigating Russia like they want. Everybody to believe they were investigating Trump. They weren't spying on Russia. They were spying because folks there wasn't any Russian collusion. You cannot talk about this without constantly doubling back to that reality. There was never any evidence of Russian collusion. Other than the steel say, which of course is not evidence. There's never any evidence. There wasn't. You cannot talk about this. So there was there was no spying on Russia. And if the F B, I really thought the Russians were trying to. Spy or implant themselves, the Trump campaign. Why didn't they tell them? Well, the answer is because it's the wrong question. The question is how is it? The F B I failed to plant their informants in the Trump campaign. That's the question because they sure as heck tried how did they fail? Wasn't any investigation of Russia. And there wasn't an investigation of Trump. There was an attempt to corrupt and pervert, the Trump campaign by implanting spies or imbedding them in it. There was no investigation of anything ever. Just a bunch of stuff made to look like one. This is a mildly. Interesting result. Go back to it who who says that spying occurred. The Democrats might not be as cut and dried Democrats say no but only twenty four to forty five percent. Republicans say, yeah. Fifty seven percent fifteen percent say no. Now, the reason this is interesting because it's not the usual divide. You'll get in a in a poll involving Trump in a poll involving Trump usually get eighty five or percent or more. Yes, or whatever Republican side and hardly any Democrats. And yet in that context of significant number of Democrats do think that Trump was spied on. Also, if you break it down further every age group teen tends to lean toward believing that somebody spied on Trump generations Z, which is eighteen to twenty one year olds believe that Trump was by thirty three twenty three millennials and gen X thirty three spied on twenty-seven not. Baby-boomer say forty two percents by twenty nine percent, not and every education level agrees that spy took place people have little college. No college. Thirty seven percent say spy on twenty-seven now people with bachelor's degrees. Forty percent say spying twenty-seven percent, say no. And the post grads the real elites, the people hate Trump. Thirty eight percent say he was spied on twenty or thirty percents. They know an all instances, the people who say, yeah. There was spying exceeds the numbers of people said, they don't know. Now, why is this important? Well, for a lot of reasons, but the main reason is the media has tried to portray bar as a Kook as a nut as a corrupt considerably Ari type guy for Trump. They have tried to portray William bar as unfair and biased and not acting in an American way, but rather tied to Trump as though Trump is personal client. And this polling data suggests that people are not seeing bar that way. By a big stretch. So there is something comforting to take from this. Even the numbers are not as high as we would like the numbers are testament to the fact that the drive-by media still has a sizable audience of propagandized, ignorant people..

"When you look at your poll question. I think over whelming people are saying college football, right is at the results right now. What you see the early voting is sixty seven percent say college football, playoff expands, twenty four percent say that the NFL would shorten their exhibition season. These these two things could happen. Similar timeframes, keeping keeping this in mind. The NFL collective bargaining agreement is due in twenty twenty one. So after the twenty twenty season. So John, we have the eighteen season the nineteen season and the twenty season in the NFL for this before the CBA comes up for play. So if you change the exhibition season and the NFL season in full, you'd have to probably run that through the CBA. Now you could. You could have a rider attached to the CBA. We'll visit with Andrew Brandt on this. He will join us in the second hour of the program, but you could do this earlier. I suppose, I guess now I think there are two different ways. Look at this poll question. So the way you looked at it as what happens. I out of all those options. And then I think there's also an interesting way of which sport needs it most because if either rank them, I would say college football probably happen. I I would say than second-place like everybody else's voting. The NFL could shorten their preseason. I think rob Manfred is progressive enough work. He would if he really felt it's going to help his game, he would really push for one fifty four. So I put that third, I don't think any chance the NBA would ever shortened eighty-two. But when I look at those results or those options, I think the NBA might be the the sport that could benefit the most from shortening its regular season. It would make the regular season more exciting. The regular season for the most part is in the NBA is the most meaningless of what we're talking about here. The one of what we're talking about here that means the most, his college football can't stumble. If you can only stumble once rare circumstances that you can do that more than one time the NFL regular season has great. Importance. The least important regular season is the NBA because we already know when the season begins who we expect to see in the finals, western finals, eastern finals, NBA finals. So we are playing a lot of games that really just don't matter there for gates there for TV there for promotions for highlights early highlights for shoe color. Yeah, they're shoe colors and highlights the NBA regular season. If you're a great team in the NBA or if you're a LeBron led team in the past, like the Cavs, all you have to do is just survive the regular season right now, the warriors couple years back kind of got into this thing where they just kept winning so they, they kind of kept pushing. But if you're truly great team, you just have to survive like it's not a big deal. If you lose a game, if you lose couple as long as it doesn't get to like a really bad losing streak, and then everybody can just kind of kick it up a notch again and you probably will get back on track. So you're right. I mean, I think the NBA would benefit the MO. Most by shortening their their season. But I think it's as far as the way the poll questions worded, it seems college football's headed that way..

"That there is a particular particularly in the air that seems to be the one driving the risk and the ep as threshold for this particular matter is about twelve micrograms per cubic meter of air but in this study they say that the risk of diabetes increases with only two point four micrograms per cubic meter and if you were exposed to five to ten micrograms remember this is still below the threshold of epa about twenty one percent of the people developed diabetes and at the safe levels that leads to twenty four percent of people developing diabetes but to me the cool thing about the risk factors it doesn't matter if the person who's obese which is a major risk factor so this is this is outside of whether the person is obese and instead what happens is that this particular matter is so small it can penetrate the lungs and enter the bloodstream where it can cause inflammation oh you're talking pm two point five then yes which is like commonly considered one of the worst worst particular matters out there just because the size it's why we have spare the air days yes exactly exactly and to me this is like the key point is that that that the inflammation that ingesting this substance causes can cause insulin resistance and eventually this becomes severe the pancreas can't make enough insulin to compensate iranians what a strange effect because we we have a societa particular man particular material to damage the lungs for a long time and damage lungs obviously leads to greater inflammation so you have greater incidence of stuff like heart disease but we don't necessarily associate that kind of inflammation risk to something like type two diabetes yes so this is a toy fascinating finding that that is perpetuating down to towards the pancreas in that way yeah so do you think wheeler is going to now decrease the threshold for safe no i mean you so the funny thing about this is that it's what we're talking about is invisible and the effects linger in the community for a long period of time so we've known for a long time that co like if you live near a coal fire power plant your risk of asthma goes up like somewhere between somewhere around like twenty percent because of this particular matter that unlike like some of the larger particular matter and the one thing that the epa is rollback which was kind of terrible was that former epa administrator put sensing monitor's on top of us embassies around the world to have worldwide monitoring of pm to two point five particular matter so to get an understanding of when health conditions were bad and this was primarily started because of air quality in china and so we've lost some of that data but i think they're still a fight to maintain that data because we the sensors for this exist and they're cheap to put up so we can have quality measuring of this data it's just a matter of what is it look like for us to protect ourselves it means like wearing dust masks for the most part yeah well here's just one story of a epa study that turned out to show some pretty significant affects i will say i would i walk away with from that story is that we wouldn't know this unless somebody invested in large expensive hard to manage study that looked at this over many years and i'm a huge fan of those types of studies but there seem to be rare rare these days in the us and super super loyal listeners as a deep cut no i'm a big fan of this i actually did in episode essentially centered on the framingham study the heart study that's based out of massachusetts that starting in nineteen forty eight enrolled five thousand people now generally generational to examine what the risk factors for heart disease are and to tell you how seminal that study is generally it's led to like a thousand papers but basically this whole idea that obesity leads to higher instance of heart disease and dynamic subsides are important for heart disease or the fact that we know that smoking leads to greater instance art to these that's that study led us to those conclusions so i want to emphasize how important these big studies can be well right now the us has struggled and some european countries to do a similar big study that in that includes microbiome data because everyone wants.
