Will Sajid Javid be the next Chancellor?
"Hey hello jim komi has been dating lunatic focus and today we're broadcasting from the spectator god in in the son of last night's patino a phrase is office is currently no i would say complete inhabitable in the paper today we have these birds johnson's cabinet it's beginning to take shape even though the vote is no to get in and james irvine that sajid javid his day night at the chance that is he not a huge issue in the row rv he has been the buddies bluntly canada the role for some time now three main reasons first of all borstal once i've johnson someone who is preparing to kind of aggressively path a new deal and seize the opportunities that i've always this is being the biggest obstacle to hang coke and other possible canada's because bushels of knows my ankle in these homes is no nudity the mind of someone who regard this as necessary negotiating ploy no ties something that might actually you might be a good thing in the way besides the job is sometimes talks about a i mean all the attorneys say but against a trust his elbow canada is it has come extensive market experience and if you consider the tobin so it would undoubtedly go a no deal brexit thought is probably the plus point in his favor a i in the second point in his favor is he offsets having another old italian prime minister and then i mean the federal government is labor made a decision on that ship strategic mistake they could have personal is a clown instead that trying to attack him as a kind of racist and homophobic and a lot and i think having a brush in the us as a non white trump would be a good reponsible so this idea but somehow boris johnson over tori policy off some kind of looks over to the to the racist right is the challenge is totally absurd but i think it would it would deal with that i mean the case against such a job it is twofold one is that he is even though he has gold batra not they should come in he is no sudden natural communicates up and secondly he's no border kind of being the tit field politics in the way say something like and goku historic buildings chief stall does i think but he's he's limitations of communication must sourcing alas because of the fact that boris johnson is basically gonna do that joke but the government the problem the trees amaze philip hammond combo is it knowing them communicate if you go to prime minister and communication having a chunk so who is in knoxville communicates is not sociable now the other cheek cans at saving leaps this rally unless trust and matt hancock hug on in contrast sajid javid he is ready kept his had died in terms of you know even inducing burst jumps in as of yet who going out to pitch him these have been coming up with policies matt hancock is being on the radio this week do you think that as backside in fact senate of active campaign well it must have been quite surprised to see such javid just disappear after this looking at the social media feed even in jerusalem apparently he thinks the most effective way to stay in praise of this joe brother of income can be dangerous that bank oculus trust am seems to be doing an end mango captain of the most successful alison really he's been coming up with stuff like talking about giving more money to public sector workers something borders didn't authorize on boards was thinking of the doesn't bode well really for the rest of are working relationship and endless trust i think is establishing yourself as the cheerful insurgents the conservative party they were driving deliberately easing freedom fighters she wants describes herself and her party now there is a good big rule for that but perhaps that rule is more business secretary is chancellor of exchequer because we will be looking at you could be looking at the new deal breaks with somebody needed to reassure the markets i am i think javed's biggest advantage over everybody else's that he is inexperienced finance here and we're not talking to them in a commercial lawyer a light christine lagarde he is blood it's andy's sponges forms of years and the russian devaluation crisis in the late nineties and various other financial crisis is financial and various banking jobs they had so she is as he has actually been through two storm before and his will be ready for a storm again i don't think you could say that of matt hancock he's he's more bigger picture and if he makes he's more let's think of the political messages the concern now it's the joy of a new deal chancellor there will be to come up with ten quite radical stimulus you need to stop v or other a newly re to fix their do now the other thing is it thursday on his team have been in conversations that it's microwave chance do you think michael they decide to stay where he has his environment secretary oh perhaps be somebody said because clearly that's love history team verse jumps in the microwave and it seemed almost revisited some of the old wins in the most recent each contests yes i think lucan a full drama element to this boris go relationship could have continues on you as i understand it abortions in view is the one who gave me the find a way to kind of move all and from the criticisms among who gave famous he made abortions in twenty sixteen when he said i'm not gonna run his campaign anymore i'm gonna stand myself but basically it's up to the job i think that you know if you look at where the well he morsels in those feel what would you win my uncle gets a little appraised boris johnson is i think my ankles has found a way to kind of move on move palm still may be owned the criticisms he made a boss don't enjoy not leadership tampa so he's made it more convincing active contrition whereas michael the one who they will need to i'm i mean they're all the rest of the nation elements to a what we're saying here mcgriff we need to a to to make clear but he is prepared to selling their accuracy premacy recognized now as far so far say a and i think you were talking there'll be any kind of upper outward shows conformity o'neil to the thirty first question if you remember during that campaign muggle guys is probably the most britain's lee critical old boris since october thirty first home than line position on the other thing is called the case you would appease cabinet discussions is will seize the moment in the victory because because the way jeremy hunt has approved the leadership contest only think means that all people around boris johnson who if he wins big town would take the v but jeremy hunt is intellectual capital position but north has senior a a cabinet position is he car and truck there is a feeling that a lot of ways from bringing up johnson sloppiness she's the complaints three information commissioner about the jones and campaigns use of data over stuff there is a feeding the hungry campaign of convenient but they did to jeremy hunt anything and they say piece in a big big margin unexpected then i mean it'll be it'll be a divorce camp who will be inclined to to to to demoted and you don't see how any the have a when i will not without recruited that's a very pleased that the german helping the need of a house archery someone else in the first contact city that decided i needed to be very important job by the government but i news bearing in mind something you're or something yeah this big picture winston churchill up in his office and what one of churches victims in victory magnanimity motions will need to remember that because what do you call it so if if he's compliments on his government's looks looks like affectionally takeover but it will not be on this well the simple pulling the trigger something that he needs to manage to create a he needs to think he's great a broader base government as possible but combining it wave everyone in canada except in public whatever they might think in a that halts in public well committed will tell you the forty first app on yeah i did emotions in making windows intimate souls or on the road so i thought he he does need them to publicly conforming no point but he also needs a fatty broad base government show but he's not factional like there is that she quickly becoming a conversation at the party last night were boris margin of victory be and which ones remember versus team who studied thing is that even hunter cabinet back so happy to engage in a conversation of demolishing if they say yeah i saw team member divorces teams they said that he's going to win by at least twenty points which i thought was a bit generous until you called home pull this morning which fits for its own sixty seven percent and jeremy hunt on twenty nine percent now very difficult the pool tory party members the ever important thing is that this contest is gonna be over effectively by thursday am i missed another member of team borders who's saying the the poster valances going out to assessor they they expect nine they expect ninety percent of people to hall of am recently voted by thursday so we're culligan leo get stuck into borders joe's new jersey on switch will probably be the toughest test either wisdom of the campaign the juicy will have already happened 'em so i i was actually being urged by m somebody the hunting last night distort the spectator campaign urging people not to cast their votes until they see me under deal debate begins you cannot leader octopussy off now you can keep it a we should find out when the last possible posting day is i'd say to people wait until they've been through the interview you bill before having said that they were you know i i can receive next week saying much besser further because i think it's quite revealing as that she cuts no jeremy hunt and piece of proof is if you have even taken social media attached to say when you've got your ballot that straight away so they're not even being stuffed with this message of lizzie borden get one under 'cause we've watched deep space beginning friday on websites davison the best latin but looks arrived yesterday so it could be that stateowned 'cause the membership by by today so you don't even get to the weekend knees and i think this year and when it comes to burst jumps in and his me their parents as i again some seem to affect that's not as high off the engineering and she used in burbenay expectancy do quite a few more because that point not that the city isn't that crunch men i know just the hunting campaign some sometimes they sound like they had more time i would definitely whole border closed got but if you look at these folks something thing jeremy hunt don't make mistakes himself up what the voters of very this is one of the worries is the he couldn't slowly he runs into these traps and he ends up getting stuck in the middle of the old having golden trouble to win from pray between seventeen manifesto is all true story manifesto the mold mira as his defense that's not finally phrase that in your tire graph column this week hugh that's how i jeremy corbyn in some backs he's had a bad week again outlived posts adjusting labor and the lowest in school and in bryant and the french crashes we discussed yesterday on the focus but you say those labor mp's thinking about trying to push john minko but they do well tremendous they could not west and yes that's right the consensus right now the journey corban is the worst possible either but that's not the way i see it am i think it's a really really pains me to admit this but jeremy corbyn does of course if you strengths first start starts he has been capable of inspiring this family big bernie sanders style movements and hundreds of thousands of people and not just losing but joining the labor party and they've done that it's difficult to do that i mean chuck triage thinking okay maybe i could try do metro and not everybody can pull off that stunts also i'm not so sure that that could be more persuasive leader player party that's homeless and it'd be more popular the jeremy corbin's people their line of work tendency in court in the sort of left wing socialist devils but lots of average voters to students that they see that british guy coming up policies the i might regard as extreme let me nationalizing utilities in the railways the tools to the moose touring tori shares agree with him on rationalizing the railways roaches degree from another utilities so many other big thing i think is that corbin ambiguity breaks it is and then scientists labor third labor voters back sprague's is so corbin will be thinking this is a big question what happens after the brexit does brings it parsi am disappear you kept homeless disappeared and do the lid then they get punctured things go back to the state this quote and see if so then labor will will still trying to hold back those am leave voters which were is foles there's another alternative when you hear quite low now vets and this has the reasons because it just adds taking ornamental seven in twenty nineteen new we didn't in twenty seventeen so flavor which would be the party of remain is testing gain more votes but it would lose this industrial heartland therefore you can afford to door this losers or leaving just raj tories because you'll get bored in you am metropolitan comfort said i am a bit weary of parties who think they can redraw these boettcher map like that i mean do you remember james they click the listen to what you said he thought okay i've lost my left wing bush's they've gone is look at continental shelf is drifted off the i'm gonna rebuild them i'm gonna get more centrist voters that didn't happen it's easier to new bathroom which is is it's sort of an but this is a gambling not quite sure anybody is quite sure if briggs which apparently reshape the politics and the brakes at versus remain is it useful dividing lines labeling to be on after breaks it is well before my personally is in twenty seventeen the labor position and breakfast construction i'm guilty works in their favor it was enough to satisfy everyone only now she's a she's in for them because what is happening is that brexit backing vote to see labor trying to stop brexit but that remain backing by says or log onto them don't think nail doing enough the salt breakfast one would be more explicitly in favor of a second referendum why they will campaign for a main and i think this is a problem which is that they do on two years later the many of us in the in the in in in in this country full but they do in forty between two stools mon this breakfast question i mean i is a challenge that's the question is right now i agree if you're right now it's negative fourth and if there is a new deal breaks and the general election in two years time will will vote yours is the situation did i think corban is thinking i'm going to i knew me now but they're playing the long game imagining big things were revert to where they were before you think the by those i i think i think the british falls is easing genuine and i think it would be risky in extreme to think that you know how quickly it will be will go back miss current full faulty system that we appear to be in by the classic to policies we didn't twenty fifteen that was the big sure i agree i mean one of the things is so one thing is only would not the ones but any money on is if we have a general election before type of saudi file a report showing some basically saying paul newman is still free me doing brexit on you mind eight 'em more like kennel predictive any confidence is loving in that contest it essentially the general election so basically if people were tons of questions all you torio all you laid off or does it become a leave of his remain lection with the tories is essentially leaf faulty under on labor stock because you'd have a kind of green lipped demo lawn says the run as the principal flight patterns of remain with labor sucking some uneasy position of of being mostly remain but not not entirely remain free
Science With Savannah, Age 7 (ep. 2)
"Pop quiz. Would you these NADA? Real kind of wind trade winds polar easterlies polar westerlies, prevailing westerlies. Stay tuned for the answer. Welcome to science with savannah, age seven. Today's episode is all about wind. It lifts kites generates electricity and moves weather around the planet, but we're just wind come from wind is caused by differences, in air pressure nature like things to be in balance. So air will always move from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure if we fill up a balloon, the air inside is under pressure as soon as we open the balloon the air rushes out until the pressure is the same that balance is called equilibrium. But does that mean that wind comes from like a giant mountain sized balloon somewhere push night? You could say that when comes from the sun, one eras warm that atoms in molecules move faster and spread out this. Mix the air less dense. So it rises. That's why steam coming off a pot of boiler water, always goes upward. One air is colder. The molecules get slower in closer together. Colder air is more dense. So it sinks who sun shining on the earth, warms the air, but it doesn't happen evenly, the sun hits different parts of the earth at different angles and the twenty nine percent of the earth that's land warms up faster than the seventy one percent. That's water. This means some areas have cold dense air and some areas have warm less dense air, the area of cold dense air is referred to as high pressure when the warmer air rises at leaves area of low pressure behind it. Now, we're getting to the part where wind happens. Air moves REM high pressure areas to pressure areas. The bigger the difference between the pressures, the faster the air on move from the high to the low pressures, the air in small balloon is under less pressure than the air in a big balloon. So the air in the big balloon, would come out quickly that rush of air is the wind. We experience Goebel wins are created by Beth a difference in temperature between the quarter in the polls and the spin of the earth called the Coriolis effect. Wind speed is measured with an animator anonomity comes from the Greek words, a knee MO for wind and metro on for measure, we can also see the direction of the wind by adding a weather vane the speed of wind is measured in knots, which is also how ships measure their speed wind direction is given by the direction from which the wind comes. So when we. Say it's a Southwind that means it's coming from the south and going north. There are many names for wind. Sure. Burst of one move at high speeds are known as gusts win can also be known as a breeze. Gale storm, or hurricane, depending on how fast it's moving strong straight wins with no rain is called a windstorm when you watch weather reports you might hear about the jet stream. That's a fast moving ribbon of air between two air masses with very different temperatures. The jet stream always moves from west to east because of the earth's rotation. Warm winds blowing toward the equator are called trade winds trade winds are always blowing and are always warm. The wind is useful in many ways wins riots. Soggy wet areas taking the water that doesn't absorb into the ground backup into the atmosphere to become rain somewhere else. The win also plays in portent role in helping plans reproduce by carrying seeds to different parts of the ground to take root in girl friend pollen from one plant to another so fruits vegetables flowers. Conform. We also use wind to help us make electrically despite what some people said when meals don't slow down the wind. They look better than the smoke from coal burning power plants, and like other green energy. They use batteries to make sure you have electric city even when the windows Lau. That's right. And now it's time for the fact fire. The fastest winds on earth occur inside tornadoes, where wind speeds can reach up to two hundred and fifty miles per hour, which is two hundred seventeen knots meteorologists use Bromberz to measure air pressure barometers can tell us if the air pressure is dropping arising. Other planets have wind to Neptune has the highest speed sustained wind in the solar system, with wind speeds of thirteen hundred miles per hour, which is about eleven hundred knots. A solar wind is a stream of charged particles that flows from the sun. The answer. Today's pop quiz question, which of these is not a real kind of wind trade winds polar easterlies polar westerlies and prevailing westerlies trick question. They're all real kinds of win. In fact, prevailing westerlies have the greatest effect on the weather in the US in Canada. I admit it wasn't intended to be a trick question. I did something wrong in the research, but a good scientist should always be willing to review their original position when new facts come to light. So savannah. What kind of things did we teach people today that the Lynn carries seeds from one place to another? That's right. And that the jet stream moves the way it does because of the earth's rotation. What other science questions do you have in mind? Why does some trees lose the leaves in some don't? That's a really good question. Maybe we'll answer it next time on science will savannah, age seven.
Biden wins the "electability" primary, but is there a "glamorous bigfoot" in the real race?
"Welcome to the lid from meet the press. I'm alex. Have you replayed, apples to apples or maybe it's not safe for work spinoff cards against humanity? It's pretty simple. And now bear with me helps explain the most important. But least understood concept of the twenty twenty democratic presidential primary electability. Okay. Here's how the game works one percents is the judge and puts out a card with the descriptive word like glamorous. Then everybody else puts down another card that matches with the word glamorous. The trick, though, isn't to put down a card that you like most. But to try to pick the one that you think the judge will like most even if it's objectively wrong. Don't believe me, this is the official instructional video from Tel now that judge gets to decide who the winners by listening to the arguments and choosing who here she thinks has the best match glamorous. Bigfoot. Bigfoot glamorous. I mean, come on, who can predicted that really. But there in lies the problem with Democrats trying to pick a candidate like they're playing apples to apples and not like they're voting in a presidential election. We're just not very good at predicting what other people do. And we're even worse predicting the future. Because after all in the twenty twenty version of this game, the judge is an imaginary swing voter from the future, probably in some other part of the country nonetheless, this is exactly what a big chunk of democratic primary voters are doing right now poll after poll is found that most voters say they'll vote for whomever has the best chance of beating Donald Trump. Even if that candidate doesn't line up with their values, and this is a new phenomenon in every other recent election Republicans or Democrats voters said it was more important for them to vote for the candidate in the primary, who shares their values than it is to pick one who stands the best chance of winning the general election. That's because Americans ever, the optimists have always thought that their candidate could win. But then twenty sixteen. Opened and the candidate that everyone thought could win did it. So now Democrats are spooked and they wanna back a winner. The problem as twenty sixteen taught us is that even the professionals aren't very good at predicting the future. So there's little reason to believe that ordinary voters with actual lives could do any better. A new study tried to get democratic primary voters to take off their pundit. Hats and put on there will voter hats and the results were fascinating. I they ask voters, the standard who would you vote for question. Then they ask them who you would make president, if you had a magic wand, you'd think the two answers would be the same because, you know, you'd think you'd vote for the person who you want to be president. But no see the magic wand, question removes any concerns about electability. And so, when voters didn't have to think about that a big chunk of Joe Biden support just disappeared in the magic, wand, scenario Biden went from twenty nine percent to nineteen percent support, while every other candidate support rose slightly, Elizabeth Warren, actually. Overtook Biden, just a little bit though. So Joe Biden is clearly, winning the elective -bility primary. I'm doing air quotes here, but is he really more electable? The short answer. We don't know he leads every poll against Donald Trump, but did Hillary Clinton at this point in the race. And so, two lots of other democratic presidential candidates just not as much as Biden, the long answer. Well, for the long answer, you'll have to read that at NBC news dot com. But in the meantime, keep an eye out for a glamorous Bigfoot. That's good for us. And don't forget to catch up with more politics on MTV daily on MSNBC.

Molly would the show actually makes you smart about pretty much. Everything that's going on right now. Subscribe to make me smart wherever you get your podcasts mayor. Lightfoot welcome to the daily social distancing. Show my pleasure. Let's jump straight into it. You have quickly become one of the busiest mayors in America an unfortunate time because corona virus has really had deep impact on Chicago. The scene is having a disproportionate impact on communities of Color African Americans on dying at higher rates. I think seventy percent of the people who have died in your area or black whereas only twenty nine percent of the population is black. What have you been looking at? And why do you think it's important to look at look at this? Through the prism of race when we have to understand the full magnitude of the impact on this virus in our city so as we started to see these numbers we took a couple of steps number one we mandated that all providers who are doing testing provide demographic information we were seeing about a quarter of the providers telling us that they were testing telling us the test results but not including the race and ethnicity of information which we knew as a critically important. The other thing that we've done is made sure that we are reaching out to these. Communities were looking at the areas where there's a highest concentration of deaths highest concentration infections on. We formed a racial equity rapid response team right away. That is taking a model of kind of community based medicine that has been affected in a particular area of the city and then expanding that model to include a public health folks people on the ground in neighborhoods everything from the pastors. The block clubs out. We've got street intervention workers who normally are working on stopping violence. We've now enlisted them in this effort and really trying to be as hyper local as we can. We know that L. While we're a city of neighborhoods each as unique in its own ways and they have their strengths in their have their challenges. So we've been learning even more about the nuances of neighborhoods particularly when you're talking about black and Brown neighborhoods. What support they need to be able to bring people into the healthcare system educated about the virus and bringing people help as what we really been about. You've been about that in in more ways than most Nita's have because you will. You started actually driving around telling people literally telling people to get back into their houses to go back home when people weren't taking it seriously this on the ground Meryl Work and Some of the. Psa's that you started releasing some of the funniest that I didn't. I didn't think we're real until I realized they actually came from you. One of my favorites was telling all the kids who are still going out to play basketball. You're jump shot is not going to improve stay home. Why did you feel it was so important to get involved personally? And why did you use humor to try and get your message across as well? I mean humor is kind of the unifying thing right in this really dark time out. We found that and really just came up organically from other people. There's a bunch of memes that that started once I closed lakefront down on interest building. Apply on people's desire for content. You know this is a time when we would be heavily involved in sports and music and all of that has been taken from us by. I'm really trying to curb the spread of this virus. So you mean people's And using humor on. It's a great way to kind of break through the noise and reach people think it's important for the mayor not just be seen behind TV screen but to be community safely of course but to be present one of the policies you've implemented in Chicago Truly stood out for me and I. It was highlighted by an issue that I think a lot of people overlook during the time and that is people who are trapped indoors or in houses or in any type of abode with family members who may be abusive specific women. We've seen domestic abuse rates skyrockets all over the world and you. You've launched an interesting initiative you know. Lift AN UBER. Or helping in this What are you doing? And why did you feel that you had to do it in the way that you did? Well look we know that. Domestic violence is a problem in the best of times and we were concern about seeing it uptick so what we did in in combination with Uber. Lift was train the on hotline workers where people were calling because they wanna get out of a a dangerous or troubling family circumstance to give them a special code that they can use to order a lift or to Uber to take them anywhere to safety It's it's a very simple and straightforward thing. But we thought that that was really important. We didn't want the absence of a ride to be reason why. Somebody felt compelled to stay in a dangerous on domestic situation. I commend you for that.

welcome to amazing business radio oh set thank you so i'm excited to be here as a student of areas that have have all ideas in the early years and that's what scares me is that you you know you said a student's you make me feel a little bit older than i probably am but let's talk about that because we we just before we started a you mentioned you were a member of e o v entrepreneurs organization i've been a member of ego since nineteen ninety four an love it and for those who don't know what ego is on a worldwide organization of of companies actually owners of companies entrepreneur that's an owner of a company or somebody that has really controlling management of a company they have a minimum of one million dollars in sales and own or run the company and joe you've been doing this for how long how long has ruby restructured it's been around nearly sixteen years now founded in two thousand three out of a little sculptors studio as providing live reception service and today hey we're at tech enabled product but still powered by wonderful human that deliver a personalized experience small business we have over six hundred fulltime employees at r the voice of ten thousand small businesses throughout united states while so now you said you're use a digital through using technology it's not just voice we leverage the technologies that are receptionist who are real people real people people all here all here in portland oregon are not just friendly but because of the technology we are we sound like were just part of our customers office were embedded into their jay we have really helpful information and week and change things on the fly just when when our customers with a tap of their mobile app they could change how they like they're called handled where they want them to go what they'd like it's it at their customers know and and the technology that allows us to be more help wow so i would imagine back in two thousand and three didn't have much of this a call forwarding probably that's right all right so early on we i just thinking about how they're really truly be helpful to the small business i knew that just answering the phone wouldn't be enough so we actually did have not nearly as a wonderful as a technology product back back back then but even back then we found some software that we could use it really populate with that much information about are companies that awesome all right so i wrote down something a justification started the chat in you called yourself be embassador of what was it being basser first impressions first impression ather first impression so talk talk to us a little bit about what that means who's really that's a good place to start since its first things first impression that's right that's right yeah and you know this is you know a being able passionate advocate through a business success through serving the customer 'em ruby we often talk about every touch point 'em but that phone call even if you're you know if you are someone who mostly tax or does shopping online that that all important phone call can be that there that most important touched by it because that's often the moment where truscott spelled m n so win eight potential she'll customer or consumer take the time to go off of a website or does a search for you and alexa give you a call oftentimes it's because it's a really important moment they want to make a purchase but they want to know is this a company that cares about me is a company that's gonna take her me if i buy something online in and it comes you're distracted if you're in attorney is this is this attorney actually gonna care about this very stressful time that i'm in and so that phone call really is that opportunity that set the tone an communicate that you're you're their customers h hair and that you're you're human and you're you're a person in people when they do business with people yeah you're right and i believe the first impressions sets the tone for every interaction that is to follow it's not just the first time somebody calls it could be the five hundred time but that is the set of yeah and so it just out of curiosity does does eighty eight in individual get assigned to a company or is it a group of individuals just how is that set up if i call it my only am i going to get you like for example if you're if you're assigned to my account is joel always answering the phone jill if not oh is answering the phone but there are a team ever receptionist that are generally gets in our customers the very economical solution at it they ball fraction of the price in house receptions one of our brand promises is that every single solitary call that comes injuring the business they is answered live 'em adds a ninety nine percent of those calls are answered within or rings thanks and so in order for that to happen whether you get a couple of calls per month or you know a hundred calls per day 'em it we do use groups and that's where that technology comes in and that's also where a release working hard to both higher but a train but also intent inspire empower a workforce that could use the technology to be able to be helpful even if it's the first time they've ever taken a call for that company but they sound consistent they deliver a consistent essentially oh wow experience but still taps into a what humans do best which is be themselves and make a connection so it's really are technology in are training and processes that create that consistent experience even if it's a different person answering a an m is that person in going to take a message going to give the give me information if i'm the customer or trans for the transformation to someplace where someone that can help me above and it's completely customize an absolutely how a are customers wish their calls to be set up in in through the mobile app for example we have one touch that date or you could integrate with their calendar calendar you could say hey if if it's a potential new customer please try to find me but the call through otherwise take a message in or vice versa 'em or you know if i'm available but the calls through but if i'm in a meeting don't it's completely cuts by my well now that that we have taken over fifty million phone calls we have a point of view about a about why essay wonderful call experience this dan billion alone call where they don't even get that's a few more than i ever had everyday what we go wait what's the secret you taken so many calls what makes really good phone call i mean look at that you know going back to being the embassador first impression weeden say were the gatekeeper 'em which is one of the things we do we help small business owners stay focused and eliminate distractions by filtering out a spam calls and you know robo calls and the like but really are job is to create a great impression in make their customers feel like we care 'em an that really needs to be top of mind so some temptation sometimes are customers they you know where we are integrated wisdom software so so when we take information i go right into their software so the temptation might be well when someone calls me for you transfer to me ask these questions and we may say you know i recognize how much that information is valuable but the important thing persistent make a great impression and people don't like to be asked me questions before we transfer the call so well well coach him since they have about three things and then or maybe will try you first ad if you're not available states called and i am things like that awesome awesome so what we're gonna do is take a real quick break and when we come back i wanna ask you how do you train these people to be amazing job that they do so we're gonna jack talk with jill nelson she is d i would just say founder president's chief of embassador of first impressions of a ruby recession as everybody don't go away will be right back if you

com fill out these subscribe subscribe to the shepherd letter form an each week you will get an article they contain a business tip stories and much more all about customer service inexperienced delivered straight to your inbox thanks for listening and don't forget always be amazing amazing amazing business radio with bestselling author and customer service and business expert chef again were back on amazing business radio talking with jill nelson jill there's a stat that i have here that you sent over i'm kim i it intrigues me more consumers are calling businesses than ever before studies show that sixty five percent of potential customers want to reach a business by phone in twenty twenty nine percent of these calls leads to a purchase now some of his stature showing no phones going away but i think in certain businesses phone is really important so assuming they were one of those businesses by the way every business the phone is important because you should have away fear customer to connect with you but let's talk about this that and give me what the real r a y as in these personal connections you're making you're you're ruby reception yeah yeah i mean i think i was surprised to to hear this to in this day and age that phone calls not only are are going away but they're actually on the rise 'em but you know it's actually driven by are little computers that we hold in are hand the mobile phones 'em an when customers do a quick search and they're looking a little tiny screen they don't wanna fill out forms they wanna do that click the column that actually with the phone in the hand and then i think there's actually some generational expectation around instant instant answer you're also 'em wanting to just push click the call in and get someone who can help you include though maybe just making sure you're number on your website on the mobile version is when you touch it it dials that's right that's right 'em an you know so in this day and age when we we think about customer experience oftentimes it's really convenient because there is an expectation of instant answers instant availability small businesses says are competing against you know the amazons of the world ad and really what they have to do is is that they have this a personal connection to the customer in this this willingness to do you know to deliver great customer experience but but really really the customer you also have to be able to be there everywhere for the customer as well but when you when you think about whether or not it's worth it to make that investment make sure that no matter how you're customer wants to reach you they're going to get a great experience 'em the are why there is this tremendous you you actually mentioned is that that twenty nine percent of all phone call actually leads to a sailor all consumer phone calls leader real felt that is the highest conversion rate of any type of customer contact so for anyone who spending any amount of money investing in marketing or exposure for the business if you're spending money and then someone makes that call and it's a bad experience whether it's nobody answers or a a foot automated phone tree or obviously somebody longtime put on hold are somebody who you know doesn't sound like they actually want to hear from you that's just throwing all of that many way and conversely 'em a happy customer who gets a a an unexpected service or felt like wow this person really gonna take care of me were busy were gonna give you as much business as we can and not only that we're gonna talk about that and those very same marketing dollars that you spend to get that exposure now instead of being thrown away not only are they working you know in the short term their their perpetuating rating and turn it into more i mean there's it's just exponential really 'em both opportunity costs if not i'm writing sure you're taking care of you're an end and actually delivering a great experience so you said two things there 'em and let's see a one of them while you talked about the friction and i had a one of the basically encapsulate that it's gotta be easy to get to you can spend all the money in the world getting people excited about your product marketing of them giving them there and then the blast step is they're gonna talk to somebody in that person blows it all the money is spent it's it's it's a shame that's happened in the end that's unfortunately what some companies do they spend spend all this time and effort and getting people to the door and once the door opens and they communicate with somebody that person hasn't been properly trained they're not properly equipped a game over you've you've blown it the other thing you said this is really important you said many of these businesses are competing against amazon so i'm gonna give you my take on this every business every business doesn't necessarily compete with amazon but they're being compared to amazon businesses they are no longer compared to the direct competitor when it comes to customer service experience there compared to the best service they receive from any company an there's an amazon effect there's a and that's what i i guess i don't know if i came up that phrase is it just seems natural it's defected amazon has had we know they're open twenty four hours a day they give us total control the technology is great if i've got a customer service issue they have a great foreign per cell service but when i am finding i'm not getting anywhere i push a button they called me it's it's it's pretty amazing they deliver they deliver fast they keep me up the date they created a lot of confidence and by the way that's what i think a lot of people do is they create confidence your with the customers or clients all right i wanna know how you properly trained people start about how you hire the people and then let's talk about how you train right but i'd say end the big the big big the big secret is to not end train them a month or perhaps a de motivate them to do the very things that you hired the bar because of their great personalities so 'em 'em are leadership philosophy is really insane inspire empower 'em in jersey service permitted hopefully we can provide that to your audience at some point 'em but we we start training 'em a fulltime but we never stopped training in anderson technical training on how to use a soccer and how the how the talk and how to how to use words that really invite trust in happiness and what matters to are small business so a lot of are training we have this sort of a customer shoes training where we actually make are receptionist take a play this video game that makes them make choices as a small business owner like joy joy go to the business in get the you know do do this lawn care business or do i go to my kids we seidel 'em making these choices do i buy advertising dry invested in a new piece of equipment 'em a basically tried to help are a receptions really understand who are customers are and what how would it help them i mean it's really you know that's more important than most and just you know handling of phone calls and then also a lot of empathy around what is the callers one of the callers feeling so you know other than the usual how do you come to work and clock an end user a software there's there's some of the special things i think are unique about ruby but were really what we're trying to inspire fire are a receptionist is to hey follow the rules of the experience is very consistent and are customers could trust us that every call will be answered will sound generally the same so it has that ruby feel at the end of the day you're you're you're on the you're on the phone 'cause you're human so we want you to use your humanness in step outside of the box and actually break the rules when the important so even if a customer has said hey joe biden me i'm in a meeting but it their kids school calling in the nursing their child is in the in the office go ahead and break those roads you know if you hear about 'em if someone's won a big case like get one minute video maybe send a card you know i'm a pizza and we have all kinds of things in our in our office that a sort of empower receptionist able to do that on their own in an m which is a whole nother conversation 'em but when you're when you're hiring the right to begin with is that we are hiring the right to begin with but it's a it's a waste if we don't also gives them the freedom in this space in the ability to really be human and do great things that are not just going there all right so you know a couple of ideas thoughts coming to mind the nordstrom handbook one one comment this is the legend just do what's right for the customer something to that effect in the sense that what you're doing so and i've talked about this on the show a number of times before but if you've got a choice to hire somebody who has a great what i would call call centre experience you know ruby receptionist type experience in a corporate call center or you had somebody was a with virtually no experience but maybe worked in a hotel for the last ten years at the front desk who do you think's gonna be better qualified m i i honestly don't know but i'm guessing that either one of them could be a we've hired by friday no no no i was just wondering if you so jim bush senior vp at the time executive senior vp worldwide customer service that if he had the choice between call centre experience and hospitality experience you would hire hats out experience supports because you could teach somebody the the technical aspects of going from screen raining so i think but your point is yes somebody with great call centre experience might have that hospitality background in the hospitality mentality if they don't have the background to deliver i think that's the most important thing you start off with the right behavior style and then you say okay you set i wrote it down you in sent you inspire you empower okay and you empower them to act as if they owned the place what would you do if this was you're out of her themselves yeah so that's great it's a it's a cycle to if you if you if that person out the company knows they're completely empowered if we did wrong by a customer of just given their money like if they absolutely hundred percent support the company did you ever it is that they did it to make the customer it makes them happy that makes them very very proud and it makes them want to be successful for the company and so it's just this ecosystem that that works together and it does you have to hire well you have to have that i am you obviously at random properly and knowing what they can and can't do which is what we're gonna talk about as soon as we get back from this nuts break all right we've been talking with jill nelson over ruby receptionist and they were gonna be right back don't go away good customer service is now an expectation don't provide it you'll be disrupted by competitor he got so what can you do the standout well that's the focus of my latest book the convenience revolution how great customer service experience that disrupts the competition and create fierce loyalty the goal is to reduce friction in be convenient customer so if you're ready to take your customer service to the next level in and disrupt their competitors well this is the book for you in the order the book go to www dot b convenience dot com be convenient dot com it's time to join the revolution the convenience revolution mediterranean which again or back width jill jill you're gonna talk to us about how you train your people so we hire the right people we understand the philosophy behind her company had some great stat on facts max made some really good points how do you train these people how do you how do you get them where you can empower them comfortably to do the job to try and i just you know that it's a concept balance so are training on foundational things i'm give someone a comfort level that they are able to be successful in how to follow the basic instructions are service pyramid that is on one of the a one of the links that were providing to this audience today it is it is sort of are foundation of how we train as well as the operating model of which we provide service and we give this model to archery are new employees when they start to say hey we're gonna focus at the base of are service pyramid this is all about foundational stuff like how do you they be software but it's really really important that you understand that were aspiring to be being were going is about making these personal connections are service permitted very mezzo hierarchy in need it starts with foundational things and these are the things that we do have very specific training on a and those were the things that provide consistency an accuracy i mean obviously we have to spell name correctly or are a small business customers and every one of those ten thousand customers had different sets of instruction that that they rely missed a follow up and there's there's word choice that we make people happy and we were we know there's word choice that actually just then conversations in the wrong way those are very very consistent training that allow a receptionist all that you know to give consistent experience a reliable one 'em why in that is delivers on what we say were going to do but the training on how do you train someone to go above and beyond 'em it's really about setting up a system so one of the things that we have you know we talked about amazon before but we actually have a prepaid amazon account in it's a component of are wow station that all of are employees are able to access that account by anything they want any type of any customer arauz station is stocked with things that we know come up in conversation so when we train for 'em so for example if someone is like oh my gosh i need another cup of coffee we might send them some portland coffee with the ruby coffee mug or will well here people calling in sick in anyhow will get well you know t and you know the tissues and and chapstick you know you know little gift bag that will send to our customers is like hey i hope you feel better 'em but you know this is all were training for what to listen to the that that are employees can make those connections aunt and then what are some ideas on how to make those connections so were not telling someone if someone sneezes santa gift you know gift but we are saying hey we know these things people care about we we know people care about their family we know the people care about their business success they like sports teams in hobbies and and when you're able to make those connections those opportunities and take it to the next level and then enter then we provide training on what does that look like is it looked like a note card as it looked like a one minute video does it look like i something firm are while station that we might and i'm so we have these that's their training that title leave that crank and i love that and so you start with the foundation i believe i'm looking at the pyramid which the base has got to be prepared with the right infrastructure is that's at the nexus do what we say will do anything i mean if you wanna erode the confidence of a of a customer quickly just simply don't do what you promised you would do i'll get this idea end of the day and two days later i'm wondering winter they really going to get it to me foster happiness now you're talking about fostering happening internally or for the customer or boat we are you know like that's still not very far up the just making a customer happy even halfway up the service airmen no no but really so really it's just not just doing what we say but you know use the kind of language that make somebody a seal 'em that makes them happy you know or deliver on your promises that makes them happy and you know a junior bassett try to make the customer happy i mean that's what offing happiness and by the way that's not because they call when they were upset it's just a it could be a call because i wanna see if i could talk to push up well shops not in today and the way it set in the way it's handled in the way of take the message on i love it when somebody calls are office and they talked to somebody on her team and they the complement is while you're people are so friendly and you know what i wanna hear i went there always friendly always helpful almost knowledgeable those of the word you wanna hear always followed by something positive all right the next going up the chain here quickly is you create experiences which is part of the whole you know any it'd be experience of being entire conversation is what referring to is right at right and a give them what they don't even know they want now that's an interesting one go with me they're telling me you could take a minute and explain what that is and you think about like we all get that figuring out how to train for that is really isn't but it's cute and it's really at the foundation about listening so one of those things that we we know when when one of our customers we have someone on the line for them and i bought one the talk to you and you hit us and then if that's you know that's the arcus rondo and you know giving the cue that he doesn't wanna talk bob he tells his obligation to take it at the arcade it'd be like you know what why don't we let you know all that bob though that you're busy and you know and and take a message for you that sort of the proactive you know offering of help 'em but there are things that we just here we just here like for example you know someone 'em you know i i can't find my headset you know wait the whole that call before you put it through i need to find my head that you know we might we might send them a little headset 'cause you know that there at the ruby track but i yeah but it's guys dilemma that just really training come at a really lift enver what what is it that customer what right i like that they are asking my experience give them what they don't even though they one part of that might be be a asking the right questions if they don't even know they should've asked all right and then finally it at the top of the pyramid at the point of the pyramid a is make meaningful connections try and i would like a cabbie that were that that is are mission and i think it's really really appropriate for what it is we are doing i don't think that that's appropriate for all businesses that when we deliver great customer experience i think there are more example like it when i'm in france that's actually likes to shirley wouldn't make friends with someone that you're doing business whether there's an arm's length transaction forum at the very helpful but the expectation is very different i think in you know in the medical field i think there's some businesses where where you're job is not to get personal you're job is to make someone feel like they're taking care of an end not do this i think there's a there's a service formula for every business at unique to them that is a mixed like how far do you thought in the personal i well i think you've defined would have meaningful connection is i think every company regardless of whether you're in france when you're not supposed we post they have you're just inside i was in singapore and i could've put my american express card or any credit card plastered on my forehead and walked in and nobody would approach me because that's just not what you do however when you finally do in gauge what do you do to create that meaningful connection that gets you connected to make sure the customer much about all right where they were out of time which i could talk to you for hours because you sent me a list of questions and you know what we haven't even gotten the question number one because we started talking about many other they i'm sure a lot of it's in here but if you if you could share with this one thing i call it the one thing question what one thing you wanna be high on my a wet one thing be reminded us of what's really important if you wanna this on his if there's one thing i wanna make sure these people you're in a what would it be 'em the best way to help a customer and kept great customer service if the help that customer be successful what is it that you're there to help them accomplish yeah so it's not about my my needs it's all about your needs it's all about what you want and making use successful well this is why we call this amazing business radio jill you have been awesome that we've been talking about joe nelson if you wanna learn more about it i believe it's called ruby dot

Morning Brief for Monday, January 7th
"I'm Anne Marie for totally in the newsroom at the Wall Street Journal trying to avoid catching the flue this season. The Wall Street Journal has some numbers, you should keep in mind.

Daily Huddle Ep 17: We Need Change Not a Pacifier
"After Rosa Parks refused to give up receipt for sitting at the front of the bus, it took three hundred and fifty one days before change occurred. That's three hundred and fifty one days of walking carpooling and peaceful protesting. The lunch counter. Sit Ins in Greensboro. North Carolina took six months before change occurred that sitting at the lunch counters of diners being refused service because of the color their skin. Six whole months peacefully demonstrating that they were equal to. And here we are in Charlotte North Carolina Seventeen days in nights of peaceful, protesting some writing as a result of senseless unarmed African Americans being killed. In our country South Tryon street where many of the protesters in Charlotte marched has now been painted a different color. Literally. Taking note out of DC page book our city model the same and went to the streets, but in a different way. By. Painting black lives matter just two blocks from trade and try on the hub of the city. The same hub where slaves were publicly whipped in dehumanized the same hub where rubber bullets were recently fired, tear gas thrown into crowds. Black lives matter painted industries, no more protests, no more riots. Is this a sign of justice taking shape. I wondered I did a poll. The responses were surprising. Seventy one percent believe yes, the rest. Twenty nine percent set no I side with the latter, but my questions didn't stop there. A one step further reach out to one of the artists that painted a letter in the black lives. Matter Street Mural asked him the same question. Is this a sign of justice? In He is an artist whose work has always been rooted in arts. Activism and community responded saying he was proud of it. Proud to be a part of it, and he was also surprised at the budget, even got approved because Charlotte tends to play it safe and with his response I couldn't agree more. We've lacked murals of messaging around black and Brown futures for so long imagine an infant crying for hours and hours on end. Crying to be fed, crying to be held crying to be nurtured and seen, and finally someone comes along and gives the baby a pacifier. That pacifier is not nurturing. That pacifier does not provide the sustenance that that baby has been screaming four. To me, seeing black lives matter painted in the streets is at pacifier. is a step forward. I would agree, but I know. Our City, our community, our nation even can do more than stick a pacifier in the baby's mouth. This has been another daily huddle.

Each and every week I'll be bringing you something that I feel passionate about and I'll be doing that in ten minutes or less S. for those of you with short attention spans. Your mind wanders with those long shows and you just don't have time to listen to them so I want to keep them short and sweet and I want to do that with absolutely no co host at all that way. I can totally completely and only give you. Dreyer's point of view that being said let's jump right into this week's topic coffee or tea red or white. Which do you prefer? I'm a tea drinker. And I love white wine. And there are differences in personalities extreme differences the personalities between these so. I just wanted to talk about that. I know a lot more coffee drinkers than I do. Tea Drinkers. I've always been fascinated especially since both my parents like coffee. And I don't I might get an occasional frappuccino or maybe caramel macchiato. But far between the average I'm a girl. So what statistics did I find out about that? I I've found that more women drink coffee every day than men. Do most Americans fix it at home as opposed to buying it out in stores which I find hard to believe because those coffee shops the line is out the door about twenty nine percent of consumers? Drink it to relax. An average person drinks three point one cups per day. According to helping to post more than half of all coffee consumers would rather skip a shower in the morning. Then skip their coffee. Can you believe that? And thirty five percent of people tend to drink black coffee that differences. I found between coffee and tea. People if you're a creative introverted morning person you prefer coffee. Oversee us. Tea Drinkers tend to be extroverted night? Owls that's definitely true for me. Definitely a night owl. Coffee drinkers tend to be light sleepers. Anti drinkers are avid sleepers. I tend to be a light sleeper. So that part I gotTA disagree with. There's exceptions every rule of course if you're a coffee drinker you self identify with. Being Messy tea drinkers. Mainly tidy fear coffee drinker. You have five or more close friends if you're a tea drinker. You're tend to be quiet in the morning if you're a coffee drinker you're more likely to be single. And as tea drinkers tend to be in relationships. According to New York Post coffee drinkers tend to take their drink. Straight and tea drinkers. At least will show sugar in our drinks. Coffee drinkers tend to be dog. People and as T. People tend to like cats. As far as music goes coffee. Drinkers tend to like Blues and Jazz and rock. But the tea drinkers. We like country. Pop or rap. I disagree with that one. I really enjoy blues and jazz and as far as tea drinkers. We are more likely to have a sweet tooth at definitely true for me. I have to have my sweets least once every day. The benefits well T- hydrates. The body. Coffee improves energy levels. Tea Reduces certain cancers and tumors whereas coffee improves physical performance. T will keep you going since it has less. Caffeine and coffee tends to lower Parkinson's disease but the best part about it is tea is good for your teeth and it's just easier to make obviously just get a bag and you're done with the coffee use brew it and or just get the grounds and it's it's just now. I'm not girl now. What about the winds red or white? I've known a lot more red wine drinkers so I wanted to look into that. The red wine drinkers tend to be more practical whereas white wine lovers. We live in the moment. The red wine people tend to speak their minds whereas white wine tend to be good listeners. Red Wine drinkers tend to be deep thinkers whereas wine drinkers are big talkers. Morning people apply to the red wine drinkers whereas night. Owls where the white wine drinkers red wine. People like good books whereas the white wine drinkers. We like good movies. Red Wine drinkers prefer table conversations. Whereas white wine drinkers re- prefer to chat on the phone. The benefits there's benefits to both with red wine higher amounts of vitamins. And you know it's good for your heart whereas the white wine drinkers white. Wine brings US less calories. I hope he learned something from this.

A Snapshot Of Poverty In America
"Understanding poverty is not easy, but it is hugely important because without understanding poverty, we can't start the debate over how to get people out of poverty in every year. The census bureau publishes a really helpful snapshot of poverty in America. This isn't the official poverty report were talking about the official poverty report is based on high much money people make before you take into account taxes or some of the benefits you get from the government. And if you do not make enough money to afford a certain my deferred, then you are considered to be below the poverty line. But those other things like taxes and benefits could make a big difference in how you experience your life and food isn't the only basic meat. That's right. And that is why the report that we're gonna talk about here on the indicator is the census bureau's other poverty report. If features something called the supplemental poverty measure, this is the snapshot of poverty. That economists argue is a lot more relevant for understanding how people actually live. This report defines. Poverty is not being able to afford all the basic necessities. So yes, it includes food of course, but also clothing, housing, utilities. And since for example, renting an apartment does not cost the same in New York as it does in Wyoming, the supplemental measure makes adjustment for that, and it makes a lot of other judgments as well on the supplemental poverty measure. Also very much does account for how much money people pay in taxes and also for the government benefits that people receive. This is indicator from planet money. I'm Cardiff Garcia Stacy's on vacation this week. So filling in for her. Is that deep? I rish voice. You just heard if putty Hirsch. Yes, a person not just the voice and not just a person, but an editor. I am the editor of the indicator, and I'm here to tell you that today's planet money indicator is thirteen point, nine percent. That is the share of all Americans who live in poverty according to the supplemental poverty report, but the resources more on that report than just that one number Dakhli it helps answer. Questions like which groups of Americans are more likely to be in poverty, and it's a specially good at figuring out which government programs are most directly responsible for keeping people out of poverty. So for better look at poverty in this country, you need to go deeper into the report today on the show we are going to do just that. This message comes from the indicators sponsor Capital. One capital one's indicator is zero because they offer accounts with zero fees or minimums, and they offer accounts that can be opened from anywhere in five minutes Capital One. What's in your wallet Capital. One in a support also comes from grow with Google from coding to IT. Support grow with Google is helping Americans across the country, learn new skills for the digital age, learn more and get started at Google dot com slash grow. Okay. Diving deep into the annual supplemental poverty measure. It came out a few weeks ago. Let's do this first. Very simply poverty has been falling in recent years. For example, back in twenty thirteen. The poverty rate was fifteen point, nine percent, but after a few more years of the economy growing and more people getting jobs, the poverty rate at the end of last year was thirteen point, nine percent. So there has been progress. Yeah, there's definitely been progress, but it still means that a forty five million Americans are living in poverty. And here we can start to get a little bit more specific. For example, with education education really maters for poverty rates almost twenty nine percent of people with a high school diploma live in poverty. On the other hand, only about seven percent of people who have a college degree live in poverty, everyone else's in between those two groups. That is a huge gap by the way. Yeah. And for a number of historical reasons, poverty rates are also different across groups of different racial origins. For example, more than one out of every five black Americans lives in poverty. Roughly the same rate applies to Hispanic Americans for white Americans. The rate is less than one in ten. Other points of note here. The poverty rate for women is slightly higher than for men. Kids under the age of eighteen are more likely to live in poverty than adults people who work part time or. Three times more likely to be in poverty than people who were fulltime. And finally, married couples or a lot less likely to live in poverty than either single adults or people who live together but are not married. So those are some of the ways that poverty flies different punch. The population be probably this into this thinking. Well, what about all these government programs? Right? So let's talk about the impact of taxes and government programs on poverty rates and Inc Patty. This is where the report gets really interesting. There are two government programs, especially that are far and away the most responsible for keeping people out of poverty. I is social security, and this is a sensitive, the government pension programs. So you pay social security taxes, your whole life. And then when you retire, you can get paid a certain amount starting at age sixty two. And last year, if social security did not exist, but everything else about the economy and taxes and benefits state exactly the same. Then another twenty seven million people in the US would be living in. Already. That is a massive number twenty seven million people out of a total population of roughly three hundred twenty million. I don't know about you. My head is spinning right night. Do the math for me. Tell me what percentage that is huge. It's like getting about eight or nine percent that eight or nine percents brutal coming in second place after social security are refundable tax credits. One of these tax credits is the earned income tax credit, and that's money that the government pays to people who work but make a low income. The other is the portion of the child tax credit that goes to very low income parents with children. These tax credits kept more than eight million people out of poverty last year and more than half of them were. Children. Also deserving mention, one is food stamps, another's housing subsidies that help people for their rent. And finally, the government supplemental security income payments that go to people who are disabled or have an extremely low income. Each of these three programs. Also kept three million people out of poverty last year. So without these five, it's safe to say that tens of millions more Americans would be in poverty than our right now. Yeah, and it's not just about things that we get from the government rights also by the stuff that we pay to the government's, the taxes we pay. And this applies of course, to lot of people who don't make a lot of money. I was stunned by this the combination of the federal income tax and the Fayka tanks, which goes to pay for social security Medicare that kept two by six million people from rising above the poverty line. So that is the breakdown yet. Although on a final note for listeners, we did not present these figures to settle any kind of partisan or ideological debate. So for example, if you tend to lean more to the left or if you're democrat, you might be arguing that these numbers show the importance of government programs for keeping people out of poverty. And it may be these programs should be even more generous and further reduce the poverty level. But if you tend to lean right or your Republic. Can you might be arguing that these programs disincentivize people from working and that without the programs, the poverty level might be even lower because more people would work or maybe you would just be arguing that the government can't fund these programmes forever because they're too expensive Patty. And I are not here to adjudicate that debate. Although I have to say that those those like line notes just given would be great line notes for debate. So do please feel free to hit those on both sides? Because the point here is that debate is a month, long one, and also probably one that's never gonna end, but never did. It, it's anyone never hurts to have the facts in the analysis to inform the debate, which is why we encourage listeners to check out the supplemental poverty report directly. So we are going to link to it on our website at NPR dot org, slash money. And even though we said that we didn't actually wanna spark debate if you wanna spark debate. If you want to yell at us, whatever you want to do it, a brand, new Twitter account at the indicator for all the insults. We don't mind. We can take it. Do you love trivia puzzles, nerdy games and humor. What about interviews with actors, musicians and people from all walks of life? Yeah, then join me. Fear.

US studies four year intervals and they did a twenty four year follow up and it was a long time but they came up with you know a half ounce daily only twenty six one point four billion dollars twenty twenty six this seriously I think people wanted to get away from beef it actually natural out the black soldier flies red worms different aunts as well for protein so this is a market that's really poised to take off and condition island three next to re talks about protein and you know I'm a big I'm Vegan Vegan protein actually getting more protein that's available and it's better for the planet maybe it's something to think about is this something you would do or the craziest thing you've tried it this is something new we know we do know or at least from the studies that have shown it doesn't do really great cardiovascular outcomes so you so you don't want to cut back or next door it's actually about but people are going onto insect protein and it figures to be a one point anyway it's GonNa be a one point four billion dollar market add like the chocolate in there to obviously the chill makes you can't get the troll makes that's always like my in between snack keep them in the car I think yeah good healthy fats exactly but that's always got who can't fit into clothes and nothing yeah I just WanNa be shredded and my APEC and ladies out there would love that it's who would be with twenty nine percent protein crickets are sixty nine percent protein so you talked about bioavailability and getting more protein idea curriculum I mean I know that that's how simple like chicken chicken chicken fried chicken I was like this boy must be from the South where I would get fried chicken and the thing every day yeah so I never really ate out like my first time actually having like lobster and seafood yeah on the show with you handicap evolution theory the fact that a guy can drink a lot and still maintain is attractive to any of this sounding tribu arranged go grab this cook it and then honestly if you have a date you were at home slaving for the people will come back Binge drinking is actually like an evolutionary mating mechanism and that those who who are the aggressive binge drinkers are more attractive to females and part of that company we know our our next next door about binge drinking and I it seems that the new study has come out say in the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology Saying that the more I drink the more confident and yeah so I definitely see but yeah we were drinking a lot oh competitive thing when females are they actually drink less because there's no guys around the drink anymore and so the positing that when females around men in Boston seafood until the man and I have no seafood until I got to the show and then sh- she fed it to me she's like no you gotta eat this I love fish oh scenario that been drinking to actually social signal that makes you more attractive to females did you find that on the show I can see I'm a shy guy so obviously the study and they actually found that amongst men when men are there less females that are more prone to binge drinking so it's not as always want one item always hope people like Oh what's your snack like what do you eat before you go to bed like always tell Mike be safe and just like not I don't get a full meal just get sunlight that's by you know like so given two guys one guy doesn't drink the other guy drinks a lot they both appeared the same this is interesting this is this is obviously not in a here's a piece of paper pick your life mate situation but you're out level of sober though the one that drink a lot more attractive no because honestly I might feel like he might be an alcoholic it could be alarming comedy show where the guy had to do everything for the girls yeah so it's a flip flip cool so y'all had to make your own food in the on the show more alcohol more or less say that cut off like you have to know your limits important yes definitely we talk a little bit more about this house how did it just depends on the man who is this man that I like I mean as long as he handles himself well he doesn't get belligerent and he's not grabbing every girl's ass much because they weren't getting good quality stuff yeah because if we're just like blur an hour read is not and trying to fight each other ah that's not the TV show for actual love and good conversation indeed felons that's a little bit of the want a little bit of you'll see a little bit tamely approached by a man seriously this is a true story where I was like no I cannot take you seriously because I think that you are an alcoholic the more aggressive drinker more attractive to you now now because I don't like sloppy drinker you can hold his own he drinks more than else but he he holds his own last season I I never wanted to do reality TV show and then he told me like I was a cool you like you'll kill it and I was like just because he gave me to go and you like going to bring you this island and you gotta break up these couples like how did they you know pretty much like that but I told them like I mean it and the sweetest okay well you know we and they're competing the more aggressive binge drinkers went out and for their affections make sense and the sorts of this is all sort term it's not like you know long term but in the short term relationship nowadays so it's like everyone single until you get married interesting change the minds out there well boyfriends true and there's no communication that hey this is a single exactly so no one really has a definition of my my my audition tape everyone single until they get married they liked you you're a little home record it got to the point where they have the stop us from Trenton on the other side of the house but right now they are single so I do wrong I've seen worse I go to the bar at the time and I see a bunch of girls this is like serious view I believe that was like for me I kind of wonder when they're doing that study if there was an age group they looked at two love it but they were trying to stop us that really just like yeah because it got really bad we did you do you find this to it all now candy this is a little protein shake yeah I love nets battle of all nets eight now being single means focus on you did you have any moments that tested that theory where you're like Oh man like this is real this is real it's not just you know they didn't tell me I'm GonNa have the national happened to be the Bachelorette oh I made it to the final cards they take you inside of the hotel and the drug test no the the Pistons because I think certain groups do consider a weight long-term even in that sort of scenario I don't want to get caught up in something long term you know so like you have to have a I don't know I don't know I don't know if I agree with that I'm not saying because people think being single means go messing around and go the on the island but technically the whole point of the show is they are single for this month yeah they're single month yeah they have good testing the release they have an option yeah so yo you got a new product sleeve this is a good way to market yourself and get
Episode 191 - Conversation with Mylie - Your Words & Thoughts Matter
"Welcome family teachers, a podcast or anyone who wants to experience healthy relationships within their family. This is Doctor Cory. Gilbert and I'm honored to come alongside you to encourage educate and equip you as he focused on the different relationships Mikus family. Let's get started and focus on today's teacher. Hey welcome to. The family features five gases stopped. Corey Gilbert here's my daughter Miley. How and we are having another conversation about something from this books? Give my my daughter and my wife went through called lies. Girls believe. Them free. By Dan, Dan Gresh On the link will be in the show notes as well. But we're looking at truth number eighteen and you picked this one and the truth is what bring much all of them best. Everybody speak in every that you think about. Someone should please God every word you speak. And every thought so worth to what I say and what I think. She'd be appeasing. God, have you should make odd smile? Is it. Now No. Remember our conversation before this with mom. What did she say? She says I don't speak a lot. But I have things in my head. Keep to myself and like you said an robot you. Would I say about this that? It's kind of hard for me since for. Much else we can set the bar high. We use a lot of words. Pleasing God all the time and the answer is no, and so we understanding that really important. This is a really scary statistics or or or From the studies that they talk almost half of girls who took our survey. Say, they have been bullied. Is probably much higher than that in other surveys, and then they said that twenty nine percent of girls say they have been the bully, or they stood by and let happen. Let. It happen without doing anything to stop it. And so, what's the lie? The lie is that it is okay to be mean. Is Not it is not okay I mean. It's crazy as you have the potential, you mean. I had you mean and you? We all have potential you mean. We have we have it in us. So. How to not how do we steward that? How can I TAME my tongue? How can I not be mean? I. Just don't. Simple help. What is what is it that? Meeting the Bible maybe don't so. Would I put in my head? Putting in stories like a lot of the books I read. They're actually paint a picture of a mean girl. Pretends to make you more likely responding like a mean girl right I'm thinking about on the Pegasus series. I read in the first book the girls about, Emily. She had to decide if she would sack. As she that sacrificed her life to. Save the Olympians, but then she actually just grab power arrived first. She had to decide what she sacrifice myself to help. People are not so. In, thinking, that might be a good example. Go and so that's the kind of stuff you read. If you read stuff that actually was really negative, you will become more negative. And then also someone that helps during the book Joe. He actually had been a bully, but he was also a informed. He'd grown Night, also I'm within a foster fan, if I eight other kids though. so He'd be He'd really been hurt probably a lot. and. It's interesting how people that are hurt a lot. Don't tend to initially come away from that. And have learned from that, so they don't hurt people. They actually tend to hurt people. And the saying is hurt. People hurt people. Hurt I'm more likely to hurt others. And so this here, the Lai, it's okay to be mean. No. It's not yeah, but it might be a default for so many of us. That's like a setting in our brain. We just arse. We're set to be more selfish. And to be more. Protective to blame lots of different words, we could put their means another one. Just really scary. What does it talk about here? It says I think being mean is worse than ever for one thing. Girls use mean girl talk to greet each other. When they want to agree to good friend. That scene for a while. They might say something like what's up ugly. You don't get that. That's hopefully you haven't really experienced that much guys are really bad at too. But. The statement says I can't even stop the madness and we need to stop doing that. Certain things like that. That are culturally okay. So our friends do it. We need to kind of go guys. Maybe, we don't need to talk that way about each other like what's up ugly. Like connects people think they mean by. You're actually trying to be like funding exactly and actually. That's some of the funny that we are. Actually would if a person really thinks ugly? And then I go. What's up ugly? They don't take it lightly. I was saying lightly. But? They're gonNA. Take it like all. They think I'm ugly. Maybe I really am ugly. That makes sense. So you don't know what they're. What's going on in their head? I. Don't know what's going on in yours as a parent that scares me. 'cause as a parent I can't fix it. I can't make it right I can't. New Make. You think right so. Getting every word you speak. Every thought you think. About someone should please God. You can't stop yourself from. Stop me from. Out She. Lets trail. So where are we going with this? This is really important state. Go to the next page. The truth negatives looking to look at that quick may the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you. Lord my rock and redeem or Psalm nineteen fourteen. So we have a truth nugget there, which is what talked, calls it here in this book. That's really important that I have a command from goddess who I'm supposed to be. And I feel time. And thanking place your talks a lot. He might sometimes trying be funny like as it says in the book, but he might not notice that he's actually being really mean. So, that saying he meet like as you guys say, he needs to learn, the boundary wrote. In Talk Sierra about James, three so the book of James In the Bible chapter three is about naming our tongues. It says that people have tamed all kinds of wild animals, birds, reptiles, and sea creatures, but no one. The tongue rice except God and Jesus Spiridon Yeah. So. We need to learn. That's why this is important in psalms may the words of my mouth? So I say and the meditation of my heart. Be Pleasing to you. Oh Lord, my rock and redeemer a so important for us. It's something that I'm I'm in my forties and learning. And ironically when I was your age saying thing, mom and Dad. Got On my case for using words inappropriately or being mean or things like that and so same for you, but it's growing always learning right. Next fixture, Kennel looks like Nina Way. White with red hair. Yup Toys any other important information. We should learn from this. Look at your list, so she made a list to keyword outline. We call it in the first point was truth or the first title? Your words in your thoughts matter the Lai. It's okay to be mean that's not okay. What else did you right? We should be smart and think before we talk, so we should be smart and things before talk. That's a hard one especially for someone who has a lot of words to get out. Talk A lot, so you change the subject before I have the time to put in like I should put it in. That's true and it's an. CHANCE TO SPEAK? Because we. have to limit. Let you talk sometimes, but what do you what position you put yourself in when you're trying to speak? Area the. upgrading Do this I don't? Know so you actually has been neat to see over the last few years. You do that, we. We know she's waiting to. Others like kids are taught to do this on the parents shirt or something like that, so the way that you stand at attention like that's actually really neat, set or sit and we. Sometimes ignore. Times. Because we're also not perfect to. Discuss probably to actually do this. which is sometimes, it's tiring. I I want to occupy care about saying it so. Yes, but we should be smart and think before we talk so that means we need to actually. Thought through it to actually have changed where we're. GonNa, say to something that's a little more thought through, and then your next one says. That child is that mean listen for me? Thoughts like sell We need a listen like know trying. Catch me. Mean God's thinking in this. Get rid of them so if you think. I hate my brother. I should say wait I. Actually Love my brother, I just don't like him. Is True, but no one ever really. The way you said that was really neat the way so that was really neat. But you can be really ticked off with him and still go but I still love him. So it's very important for all relationships. You can still love someone disagree I. Think I've. on chapter four how it says. That how if you can't love your brother and sister who you can see? How can you love? God, who you have not seen so important. Good good recall. There that thing I really liked. So important. So, say that again. If you, how can you love your? How can you love your brothers and or sister? Shanti. If you can't love God who you cannot see so important to sit there and you think on that. Like some people say they're brother and sister and they might think they do but. They actually think through the Really do care. And they can care in hate with their roller sister doing. I can hate it when. They're acting mean. We actually can we re remind you guys stop using the word hate even that that's almost a little too harsh. I don't like like I. Don't like it when they do this. In safe that word hate for something much stronger. That we actually need to be careful with which is really important. So listen for mean thoughts means there are things in my head. that. Goes there without me choosing? So! How can I? Grab that and take every thought captive like it might be like a part of your brain. That doesn't like what they're doing is like. Tell this to them. Just pushes it our consciousness with a good picture. I love that. The part that cares is like wait I need to get her to get this out and I love the. That's a good picture. Smart left. That's really cool. Yeah, so you listen to the mean thoughts and you go no. You tell them go away. Or you're not true. I believe this. And as you do that, you're taking every thought captive in your actually being in charge strengthening your love for God me and you are absolutely and others, and then your last point here was trying find sneaky snake messages and push them out. What in the world is a sneaky snake message rally in the First Sean stuff we've been watching the called Satan this Niki snake and said sneaky sneak messages are messages that are not true. State messages or not true. So we need to actually pay attention to. There are little little stories, a plan my head, but tell me something about myself that like how I look or how my voice sounds or my eyes for my nose or my hair. I! Like. Full. You wanted to get your hair cut short, and then you wanted it straight. chained straight by I. Don't allow like funny 'cause. That's that that's very normal. A lot of girls at curly hair want straight here and if they have straight here, they want curly hair. One color one another. I like my hair colors I discount. Decide if I want straight or curly hair. Well guess what got already decided for you. It's kind of cool and you know what. I? Think those freckles all need to go. and find within good. But was crazy is if you had been? If there's this party, that's really like my freckles than you. would. That moment gone? Maybe right. Inside your head. Struggle 'cause there's always interactions with family with friends everywhere where people have opinions or just say something funny. And they're actually being mean even if they didn't mean to be mean. and. Try and find sneaky snake messages in push them out, and this is back to that verse Psalm, Nineteen Fourteen, may the words of my mouth. and Meditation of my heart be pleasing to you. Oh Lord, my rock and redeemer some. Middle Word of mouth and meditation in my heart, and so that's the meditation. My heart is so what on reading when I'm putting in my? My head. So the time the Bible, the time in worship, those terms I listen to books, everything movies. TV shows so that's really important. Police are really good I like this. Yeah, so we're going to recap real quick. We have the truth is what? Your words and thoughts natter yes, and then the Lai. It's okay to be new Katie me. No, it's not than the tactics. We should be smart and think before we talk so hard. Listen for me. And try and find sneaky snake messages. Get rid of them Yup. Push them out the love at sill. Go Away! That's not true. That's right. Talk to yourself. Be Crazy. Yup, and walk. She always talking to herself Sentence talking to yourself in right, so we need to tell ourselves that's true. That's not true in the filter is God's word. God's say about us. Not, my parents not my friends, no one else. Has got to say about US he adores us. So even apparent who adores children is not even compare. There's nothing. Signing close to how much God loves us. Like Howie like the food we eat. Something far like.

Stay in your lane! Sanders, Warren pull support from exact same voter bloc
"Welcome to the live from meet the press. I'm Carrie, Dan? The very first democratic debate two nights of it starts two weeks from today, hosted by NBC MSNBC, and Telemundo nine to eleven pm. And yes, I think I'm contractually obligated to sail that so let's talk about something we've talked about before with this democratic field, which is lanes. That song, always makes me feel like it's two thousand seven again, simpler times, anyway, pundits talk a lot about Wayne's when it comes to the twenty twenty race. Because in fairness, there will be twenty candidates total participating in the two nights of debates, which makes this whole lanes highway analogy pretty much seemed like the freeway in LA. At rush hour end I should note. There are other people who find the lanes analogy kind of oversimplified like, is there, a lien for the biographies of candidates, all the candidates of color and women, and then all the white guys on the other side, so many white guys or is about age? There's the older candidates and the younger ones, or is it about a specific policy issue, like say where people stand on Medicare for all, or is it just kind of about personality? Like does Elizabeth Warren, get her own lane, just for being the person with the most specific policy. Plans compared to everyone. Else, all of those things kind of overlap, which, yeah, I see the argument the whole lane, -nology seems very much over-simplified at times. But rather than sits in our towers, and try to assign lanes. We can also listen to what voters are actually telling us in public opinion polling, here's something that we noticed in a new Quinnipiac, poll, the came out yesterday before you ask. Yes, they're horse race numbers. Yeah. There what you'd expect Google it if you're dying to now inside the numbers, though, we noticed this, the poll broke down democratic voters by their ideology, and among people who call themselves, quote, very liberal to candidates stood out Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Here's the thing. They're both drawing. Exactly the same share of liberal voters both at twenty nine percent way below them are Joe Biden and Pete Buddha, JR. And then everyone else in the field is under. Three percent with lefty voters, which kind of puts Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in the same kind of lane there. Each pulling exactly the same amount of support from their core group on the left wing of the party. So if you're either one of them, you have to hope the other one collapses. Right. And you have to hope that one of those other three percenters on the left side of the field doesn't have a breakout moments. Maybe in the debates that could eat away at your core support remember candidates don't know, until tomorrow, who they're going to be on stage with because the debates are, of course, broken up over the two nights. So if you're Sanders are Warren, do you want to be on the scene stage, or do you wanna be on different nights? These yeah, they're big stakes. Seriously? No pressure guys. That's good for us. If you let hear more of this audio briefing, you can add, meet the press the lid to your flash briefings on Amazon Alexa, devices or just down the as a free podcast.
Sanders could overtake Biden's hold on the black vote
"Welcome to the live from meet the press I'm carried in. Here's a number of the day for you. It is somewhere around one third. That's how much support we found. Among black primary voters for both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders according to new data from our latest. Nbc News Wall Street Journal Poll and that is a big deal because up until pretty recently Joe Biden was leading with black voters by a huge margin and sort of the conventional wisdom was at sanders past struggles with black voters in two thousand sixteen could be his. Achilles heel in twenty twenty. Now you may be wondering wait. It's a pull. Why give me just kind of big numbers? So here's the deal. This was an oversample of black voters which means we sampled more than we normally do in a national poll that means a larger sample size which means a lower margin of air so we had a total of two hundred and fifty two registered voters were African American in the sample that yielded a margin of error of six point one seven percentage points. That's pretty high but it's lower than it would be in just a regular national poll if we wanted to look at black voters. But here's the big bud. Among just black primary voters in the Democratic primary will there were only one hundred thirty nine respondents which made the margin of error eight point three one and that's very high so high that it's really difficult to draw too many conclusions with a margin of error that big the difference between say one candidate getting four percent in one candidate. Getting six percents is pretty much meaningless so we kept our data released pretty general for that very reason. Yes in our coverage. We did publish that. The pull found Joe Biden. Got The support of thirty one percent. Sanders got twenty nine percent but that includes a huge caveat that we can't be that confident about the precise level of support that either candidate has. But here's why we reported these results at all. What we do know is that these numbers represent outside the margin of error. A huge boost for Bernie Sanders. Who Trailed Biden as much as thirty points in all the data that we put together from our polls in two thousand nineteen and that's important and consequential enough that it's definitely worth talking at least generally about these numbers with black voters even if we can't be super precise about the horse race and we can also tell this from the data no other candidate in the poll really showed any signs of life with black voters at all. The one possible exception would be Mike Bloomberg. Who's maybe got a pulse butts? I will note that. This poll was in the field before the democratic debate on Wednesday when he took a lot of incoming over the issues of race so there could be some fluctuations in the future now also in this survey we learned that black voters overall are not pretty keen onto Democratic candidates in particular. I mean closure and Pete Buddhist those voters overall now. We're talking about the larger sample here of two hundred and fifty ish black voters rather than the smaller one of one thirty nine who are voting in the Democratic primary but those voters were actually more likely to express discomfort with the candidacies of Buddha Jr enclosure then comfort with them which is a really bad place to be a week before the South Carolina. Primary and we can change until Super Tuesday. What's does all of it mean. Well bottom line. It's just very good. News for Bernie Sanders who appears to turn things around with a huge voter bloc. That picked Hillary Clinton over him by something like a three to one margin in two thousand sixteen. And it's tough news for anybody else except for Joe Biden because there are challenges ahead in the diverse states in the primary to come. That's for us. We'll be back Monday. If you'd like to hear more of this free audio briefing you can always l. at us on favorite podcast APP. Hey it's MSNBC's Chris as this week on my podcast wise is happening. I'll be talking with the hilarious and brilliant writer. Daniel lavery about his new book about life as a trans man growing up in an evangelical household.

If you are or you aren't you can try to chase that dragon but there will not be that moment so you can investigate these questions further. You can consider the options that are available to you.

The Case for AllSides: John Gable, Samantha Shireman
"A listener to last week shows send us an email praising you jim for your sensible centrist views and he implied i think to his disapproval that. I'm the liberal. And there i was thinking. I was the sensible one and you were the right wing. Not it's just all a matter of perspective. Richard speaking of reality in perspective or the lack of this week's show is on media bias. Disinformation and fake news. The case for all sides with john gabel and samantha sharman for the most part media outlets are funded by advertisements. Right and advertisements require lakes. And what's going to get. Clicks is fear and anger. Our show is about fixes. Yeah how to make the world a better place. How do we fix it. Ever since we launched. How do we fix it. We've been talking about filter bubbles and it seems like they've gotten worse out there it's so important to get out of that everybody says it. But how do you do it. It's more than that jim. Some information that people read is just fake or linked to wild conspiracy. And we're going to talk about that. I we're take a close look at all. Sides dot com. This is a tool to help. People see the world from different perspectives. They don't normally get within their social bubbles and filter bubbles. This is what's cool about it. Take a new story and they find a source on the left on the right and in the center and they show you what all three of those sources said about the same story. We're joined in a remote studio today by all sides founder and ceo. John gabel who i spoke with four years ago on. How do we fix it as well. As the site's director of product samantha sherman. Welcome to how do we fix it for having us so give us the elevator pitched on. Why should i go to your site for news. All sides kind of speaks to its name. We show the latest news breaking news and any issue or topic from the left center and right the whole point is that people can immediately see different perspectives. Any new story any connect with other people on that story. They wanted unlike jim. Eileen left so my natural sources of information are probably npr in the new york times washington. Post gyms may be different from me. What do i get out of going. All sides that. I don't from say mainstream media. The more enlightened reason would be to get a broader understanding of the issues a. It's you're not going to have the best understanding of an issue if you're never challenged in your views so getting a getting an understanding of how different people are viewing. This and getting that balance news is a way to strengthen your your knowledge. I'm sure there are people who come to all sides for the perhaps less inside in light reason of know thy enemy right if you are considering yourself in a fight against these these other forces that wants to do harm to the country Then you might as well know where they're coming from and understand what they're talking about and maybe that's not so bad. I mean i think real weakness of a lot of people is that they never hear the other side of their own of their viewpoints. And so they'd they'd be able to make the strongest argument or see the weaknesses in their position. One example of that specifically that out sticks in my mind in particular is the whole question about protests versus riots and there was a study done where it had ninety. Three percent of all of these demonstrations were peaceful. And then you had all the left media saying look it's all peaceful. It's all peaceful. It's all peaceful. Then you had people on the right. Saying seven percent did have violence in that added up to over two hundred twenty something instances violence and is that a problem and of course they only emphasize that when you saw it on our site you stop both perspectives. Now i'm fascinated about how you decide to make your ratings on bias and one example which which came recently as you had a vigorous discussion at all signs. Didn't you john about whether to call. Joe biden president elect yet that was particularly interesting. One and one of the toughest ones we've had because there is a technical definition of president-elect when the electors votes have been counted and then there's the kind of wet has been doing for many many many years where he just say hey once it's projected winner We call on the president elect. The question for us was are we making are we. All sides making a determination as to the result of lawsuits. Which i which. In my opinion they will not add that. I don't see how they could possibly add up to any change but is it our role to decide that with court cases pending and also When we think about the technical definition is the historical approach adjust accepting mainstream media or big media that can actually do polls their result as the literal answer and then there was a third piece. We realized he said if we shows projected winner we actually do a little bit of Education about our system and so it was a tough decision of ours but we decided that the decision that called for the least assumptions in our part that also the benefit of democracy knowledge or republic understanding amongst users using projected winner was the best there but it was it was not unanimous and it was a tough call franklin. So you call you call. Joe biden the projected winner rather than president-elect we do but we also most of our content is other websites so what other websites say president-elect week. Don't count that or try to hide that or anything like that just in our own personal sufferings when we write it we decided to use the term projected winner for now. I'm really intrigued by. And i love this concept of of looking stories finding a good outlet from the left the right and the centre and i can say the the choices you make on the right are they tend to be the more reliable responsible Outlets you're not going to really wacky Fringe sites for the most part. But but how do you find people in the center. It's getting harder and harder. It is getting harder and harder our audience. Actually we did a survey as there are audience and it came out. Twenty nine percent from the last twenty nine percent from the right and forty two percent from the center is the way the audience saw themselves so we have a nice balance at our audience. Certainly fits their so. Finding people in the centre stotthard hard. Finding news organizations consider center is more challenging. What we found is that because we do blind by survey so we actually show people the news without them knowing the source and every time we do the wall street journal new section. That comes right down the middle every time they seem to be the most reliable center news reporting their their opinion is right but there there. I frankly really impressed with them and others as well who do a good job so far we've been talking about maya's but how do you deal with outright misinformation and conspiracy theories which seemed to be gaining broader currency especially on social media. First of all are generally doesn't come up for us that much because we tend to cover national news. That's getting national attention. Either from left center rights so we we tend to reflect the bigger news items however when a conspiracy theory gets big enough that it's become so mainstream we don't shy away from it. We cover it as well as cover the opposite side. That's saying this is. It's spiracy theory and how it's wrong. The best way to energize conspiracy theory is to never talk about it. We reveal the arguments that it's conspiracy or or back and forth so people can decide for themselves. That's actually our ultimate focus is to empower our readers to really decide for themselves and understanding brought pitcher. That that's something i think is just so important. I've actually spent a big chunk of my career debunking conspiracy theories especially the nine eleven conspiracy theories at a time when no one in the mainstream press was even acknowledging that they existed even though they were spreading kind of underground Very very powerfully. Jim just just to just to go back on that. The nine eleven conspiracy theory because you did a tremendous amount of work on this. What were the conspiracy theorists saying about what happened on nine eleven when you dug down through all the layers they were saying all conspiracy theories there s tend to say the jews did it. I mean that that's really where it often wound up and interestingly this stuff was mostly coming in from the left back then today we think a lot about conspiracy theories on the right basically the bush and some kabbal involving massad and the cia and my publishing company. I mean because once you publish about it you're part of the conspiracy. But what i was encouraged by was there was still a group. Of course they were the hardcore nuts out there but there was a group of people who were just naturally curious naturally skeptical and they were kinda relieved to see somebody digging in answering their questions. I think that's a huge important thing that we cannot overlook that information is out there and if we don't address it gets pulled away and if we only trust by their one hundred percent wrong. That's a problem as well. So there is a lot of that going on with conspiracy theories or allegations of voter fraud right now and so we frequently see in the new saying there's no evidence of voter fraud at all and there's actually a lot of evidence of small examples of voter fraud and when you take the extreme counter side you lose credibility and i actually see voting as sacred thing So whether people are being prevented from voting or being canceled out by even one illegal vote that actually bothers me to irrational state to be quite honest about it but we can describe how they don't add up to enough to change the election. We describe which parts of the lawsuit are valid. Which ones there's just kind of ridiculous but if we go through that we basically say hey readers we believe you're capable of deciding for yourself that we don't have to over simplify things one side or the other and that's what it really comes down to. A democratic republic needs to come down to rather than people just telling everybody else how to trust us samantha. John's been talking lot manta thoughts on this man. It's tricky balance because once misinformation has gotten to a person it's impossible to remove that from their brain if someone receives misinformation especially from a trusted source which was happening constantly on social media. Right now right. They're getting misinformation from their friends and family from people within their own sphere And they read. That and their their defenses are down when it's coming from somebody that they trust and so they are very quickly going to believe it. What john said is absolutely correct of one of the best ways you can. Fuel a conspiracy theory is to attempt to censor it. Because then you're you're kind of playing into their hand of see. They don't want us talking about that. They are suppressing the truth. You're listening to. How do we fix it. With samantha. sharman and john gable of the site all sides dot com. i'm richard davies. And i'm jim megs you look tired. I take it the caffeine toothpaste and adrenaline face serum aren't working. Well maybe you should ask santa for a nectar mattress this year. And if the big guy brings you another unicorn finger. Puppet don't worry because mattresses starting at just four hundred ninety nine dollars and she gets three hundred ninety nine dollars in accessories thrown in as well as at three hundred sixty five night home trial and a forever warranty go to nectar sleep dot com today now back to our interview for a lot of people biased just automatically a bad thing. You know it means. You're you're distorting information somehow but you say everyone has bias yes and we all are biased by what we know by what we don't know and our entire life experience and i don't think biases necessarily bad. The other extreme is is that we have no opinions. No no history No judgment the key is to let people know where the information is coming from at. Give them that broader perspective and we use bias as a way to do that not as a way to point fingers at each other going nian yanyan. Yeah but as a shortcut for revealing different points of view and different ways of looking at the same thing. When jim and i were talking about doing this podcast Jim made a fascinating point. That i really hadn't thought about and that is. Is there such a thing as good bias. In other words sites. That are clear that they're coming from say a liberal perspective or a conservative perspective and are up front with with their readers. I don't know if i would consider it good bias versus bad bias. But i think bias is a fact of life and the best thing you can possibly do a about it is to be transparent about it and so i absolutely respect organizations that are transparent about their bias. Used to say hidden by is a problem. Yes or if somebody that they hide intentionally or other. People are not aware of the bias that leads to misunderstanding. And and that's the problem and that's what we that's why we are very transparent in really the best weekend and i think a lot of the time it's when when it's hidden bias. It's not malicious at all. It's they don't understand their own biases not a standing that we tend to discuss. And sometimes it's just what stories they thinker interesting enough to cover not necessarily how they cover them. Yeah and story. Choice is a bet a lot of times when we have a when we have media outlet that we are doing editorial reviewer. Something is custody and we're trying to figure out where they land one of the trickiest ones to deal with is story choice because you can have articles that are written in a completely center sort of way and yet if you look at all of those stories it's like these are all to do with topics that really resonate with a right or the left. I think that's something that's been raised by black lives matter movement. I think media organizations have not considered the views of marginalized people say people of color or lgbtq or indigenous folks from the other perspective. I think that liberal sites simply do not understand business. They don't understand the profit motive and businesses contribute to communities into the country or religious groups as well I'd say that a lot of Left-leaning media skips that we have been talking and working great deal inside of all sides to deal with what we call or bits and win. Any group has one day thing. That's really big. That's not being covered. We're actually seeking to bring that to the forefront. What's changed in the years since all sides launched so. I guess i had to answer that. I've been here longer than sam has. Yeah you can answer it for all sides. I don't know how broad that question was. A of things have changed. So where i'm going with. This is what's changing the world because all sides isn't just a an organization that helps you get to a diversity of news sources. It also monitors all these news sources and how users interact with news. What's happened to the media. What's happened to the audience. In the years. Since all sides launched in two ways particularly first of all we talk about effective polarization rather than his general polarization so effective polarization is. I am against it because you against you and anything you stand for and therefore against that has definitely grown and we think that's the problem with polarization. Having people disagrees not necessarily a bad thing. yeah it becomes. I dislike you because you believe this as opposed to we believe different things. And let's have a debate about our our our differences of opinion. Even if those differences of opinion are strong You can still have a very healthy democracy with political polarization when it becomes affect of polarization that leads to anger. That fear and that anger leads to the humanization And dehumanisation is essentially what humans need to do to trick their brain into allowing them to do harm to another person. We're talking about news right. We're talking about providing bounce information about the news but these are these are real issues that if left unchecked can take us down a really dangerous. Pass you certainly see that on twitter every day you really do and man. I wish people would get off twitter because it is actively harmful to human empathy. So what about the news. What about how i mean. I feel like. I've seen a change in the new york times just in the last two or three years. How are they doing we to measure that we do watch that and that has changed in fact. We were calling cnn as an example. Because we were. Just look at the webpage not the the site. Not the tv program. We were calling them for a while and two am getting criticized calling their news center for a while but they definitely shift. They definitely shift in her clearly. Lean left even on their website. When it's just the stories that you see that you re new york times Has moved to the left as well. We've seen lots of changes in the feedback. We get from people in our sides say tend to be going to the tribes. They tend to becoming more extreme. They tend to be resulting to. They're all reacting to their own filter bubbles where they only see one side or the other and to the polarization. Defective polarization samantha's talking. 'bout i think leads to more extreme journalism in general in the case of the new york times being anti-trump has been great for their business model. They've hugely increased their circulation and fox news. Being pro trump has been good for their business model. So much of the past four years has been about trump. Is there a possibility that in the next four years. Maybe they'll be a slight return to the center by some media outlets or am. I just being mr optimistic again. Well i want to speak to the business model of it. So for the most part media outlets are funded by advertisements and advertisements require clicks. And what's going to get. Clicks is fear and anger And so it is ingrained in the current business model that you are going to make the most money if you can polarize people because that is what is going to make them afraid an angry. Speaking of fear and anger the debate over cancel culture fires up both conservatives and liberals where do you come down samantha. I think this is really a case. Where both sides have a have a really good point on the right. You have a lot of people upset about censorship and you have a lot of people upset about the what seems like a shrinking of the circle of information that is acceptable speech And on the left. And i think and i think to a certain extent that is that is a fair point People do have to be more careful about how they say. Things now Than they once did. I don't think that's entirely a bad thing. I think historically the loudest voices have been predominantly white straight at mail and now this is one of the benefits of of twitter. One of the benefits of social media and the internet in general is more people are able to find a platform. We're hearing more voices and so the voices that historically have been silenced by larger media people of color people within the community women. Those voices are able to be louder and for the first time people are able to say. Hey what you're saying is actually not okay. What you're saying is actually harmful and if you are in a position where his where you have been able to comfortably say whatever you want and not think that it's hurting other people and suddenly people are saying actually what you're saying is not okay that can feel like suppression. It's not it is a a lifting of the other voices. I do think that can be taken too far. So i think it's an important journey that we're taking right now. Where people are speaking out against voices that have harmed them and opinions that have been harmful. What i don't think is acceptable. Is someone saying one vaguely insensitive thing on twitter and having their careers ruined. I think the the response to that should be communication. Not let's destroy your life. Because i found this one offensive thing that you did ten years ago so a question. We ask almost everyone john. We've just gone through this wrenching election. Are you optimistic or do you see a corner. We could be turning up ahead. Are we rounding the curve. Anybody's had a friend or loved one that's dealt with addiction. They would recognize that those terrible moments bottoming out are actually good news because you have to be aware of the problem and get in a pretty bad place before it can get better. When all sides was knew i'd had to spend all sorts of time explaining to people the dangers and problems have polarization and effective polarization. How is destroying our country and how readers wanted something else in how terrible this was and i had to spend all my i like most of my talking with them about their reality now when i talk to potential investors or people. I don't have to spend any time on that at all so the good thing that's coming out of this is that people are recognizing that there is a problem in society that people are divided in different tribes. There is a problem with the news flow online. I'm not just talking about mainstream news media but twitter and even a google which tends to promote the most popular point of view ignores all the rest so we become confidently ignorant by seeing one point eight hundred times not seeing any other points to the. There is a fundamental problem in the information flow online in society in general and in our relationships with each other and now that we know the problem we could do something about it and the great thing people recognize that people are fed up. We see people changing way. They get their information. So pew research did a survey A while ago that asked people can use today want and two years before they did that. Survey sixty three percent of the people said they prefer news. That didn't have a slant one way or the other they're more. Recent survey jumped to seventy eight percent of people wanting news. That didn't have a certain slant. That's dramatic shift in a very short period of time and that's just one of many things are growth over the last nine months we grew ten times faster than the rest of the news industry And we're certainly proud of our success. Our success had more to do with the fact that people are shifting to what they're looking for they're shifting to look for different kinds of news because they know that what they currently getting isn't doing the job. Okay thank you very much. Both of you eight. He's you so much for having us this. This is really fun this is how do we fix it. With john. gable. In samantha sherman of all sides dot com. What a great conversation with two people are sort of in our tribe. Richard people who are trying to promote better discussions better understanding across the political spectrum. It's that time of the show where we do our recommendations what have you got for us a paragon by irish writer colum mccann. I thought this was a good choice for this week. Because we've been talking about the way. Different sides In controversial issues covered and this book which is a novel tells the story of two fathers one palestinian one israeli who've both lost their young daughters The conflict between palestine israel both men rami and assam attempt to use their grief as a weapon for peace. I love this book parts of it. I like poetry and yet but some rami are both real men and another words. This is a book. That's a merger between fiction and nonfiction highly recommended a paragon by colum. Mccann it sounds like a paragon but it's actually spelled. Api our own g. n. I never would have known how to pronounce that up just by reading it. Well maybe i pronounced an. But i think that's what it is and now it's on to our conversation but before we get there a happy thanksgiving to all of our listeners. We won't be releasing a show over the holidays but will return on december fourth. Jim you have some thoughts about our interview with john. And samantha and an example of how all sides dot com works as we record this one of the big issues. A trump's been repeating some stuff that came bubble out some far right conspiracy theory about this company. Dominion voting systems and supposedly their systems have automatically switching votes away from trump and towards biden. And you know everybody's first reaction says. Wow that's crazy conspiracy theory because it is. I mean there's no evidence of this. So what is the right. Say about this. So all sides found an article from washington examiner which is a small conservative paper. They come up with the case. That in two thousand eighteen a bunch of politicians on the left including elizabeth warren and amy klobuchar were accusing the same voting company dominion of having technology that might swap votes. It doesn't make the conservatives right to realize we don't want to fly off the handle with every accusation and if there's any truth at all to the idea these computer systems might be defective or might be hackel. Let's look into it. I'm actually writing art about that right now. It doesn't mean it's happened but if it could happen. It's definitely worth looking into and finding a way to defend against. Yeah i agree with everything you've said. Jim and i was surprised by the dominion story as well i didn't realize until i read all sides that this was a problem more than for the right until the twenty twenty election came along.
