Creepy Dossier Rocks Scottsdale Unified School District

"If you think what happened in loudon county was just an isolated incident, wait till I tell you what's happening in Scottsdale unified school district. So this guy, Jan Michael Greenberg had emailed one of the parents about some sort of back and forth calling a parent antisemitic over her comments she made about billionaire George Soros, like give me a break. But in the screenshot was a link to his private Google Drive account. Now that private Google Drive account then, the parent had the wisdom and the wherewithal to actually go see what does he have in the private Google Drive account. Well, in the private drive account, he had a dossier. Of parents private information, pictures of 8 and ten year old blogging and collecting information on parents and the stock still unified school district that might speak against his regime as governing board of the stock so unified school district. He said, we've identified in there were 47 people who he hired private investigators to check their backgrounds, their divorce decrees, he had social security numbers, property records, and mortgages of parents who have just come and spoke at the Scottsdale unified school district. In Arizona, I hope you're listening very closely. Your taxpayer dollars when you pay money, I pay Scottsdale taxes, by the way, hello, this includes me. When I pay Scottsdale, unified school district, money, I am paying for this creep to go spy on parents. Meanwhile, Scottsdale unified school district enrollment is going down, they're masking children against state law and what is he focused on, oh, he's creating dossiers. With different labels and different folders, one that was labeled anti mask lunatics, or press conference psychos, or parents showing signs that say CRT is racist, or S USD we demand transparency.

And they're all on the same team so they are now the new godzilla of the internet because it used to be jeff bezos. But now he's going to space and you've got these three guys one being canadian.

Stablecoins in the Hot Seat: Powell Calls Bitcoin a Substitute for Gold

"There was an absolute flurry of content and commentary yesterday around the place of bitcoin. Stable coins defy and the digital asset industry as a whole vis-a-vis. Us government regulation as well as how a digital dollar might shake that all up before we get into it. Let's at the terms of the debate. One of the competitors for this cycles top fudd is the government will ban it if it gets sufficiently threatening now to be clear banning depending on your sister could mean anything from an outright ban of use in holding too forceful seizure too limiting access to on and off ramps to the more benign from a commercial standpoint but no less threatening from a privacy standpoint integration of the full crypto infrastructure into the am l. kyc. Money surveillance apparatus. I've spent some time on this show looking into global versions where this fudd seems to be playing out in particular. We've been watching the evolving situation in india and nigeria india which seems gearing up for a bill that would have some sort of outright ban although at least one finance minister says that that's not the case and nigeria. Where the central bank of nigeria. I reiterated that banks should not be working with crypto users which they've then subsequently rolled back just a little bit either way however really what everyone has been focused on is the us particularly in the context of a new administration. The last administration had friends and foes alike when it came to bitcoin and crypto trump. Famously tweeted that he did not like bitcoin or crypto. But we didn't really take that seriously as a threat because it was so clearly about zuckerberg and libra mnuchin was a much bigger enemy. Probably wrote that text for trump's tweet even and clearly wanted to tighten the reins in his final act. He was trying to require exchanges to collect more information. When users transferred crypto to their own wallets on the flip side however there was brian brooks who was absolutely revolutionary at the office of the comptroller of the currency. The changes he oversaw are a huge reason. Why so many big institutions are now playing in this space. Why so many big traditional banks feel like they have to race to catch up to allow people to offer their customers crypto services however as we know from physics every action has a reaction and to some extent one reason why observers are so keenly watching the biden administration is to see how much they're going to respond or try to walk back with brooks in the occ changed on top of that. As the biden administration has come to power the price and volume around bitcoin stable coins and the rest of the digital asset industries have made them much more on ignore -able last time joe biden was in office. Bitcoin is about four hundred and thirty bucks. Now it's been over fifty thousand dollars for sixteen days in a row tether was barely out of diapers now. It has a market supply above forty billion in his doing upwards of one hundred billion dollars in volume per day combined with us dc. And you've got over. Fifty billion dollars of usd approximates there so lot more is at stake with that. People have been watching. Two things has come in and what they're saying on the who has come inside. Janet yellen is back for another round although this time is treasury secretary rather than as he chair gary genzer to is back. Although this time is as he c- chair. Instead of cftc chair of these two there is much more optimism around gessler who has done a pretty fair bit of work to understand where the crypto industry is coming from even teaching a course at mit about bitcoin and blockchain. And of course we have someone who still around in the form. Of jay powell. The federal reserve chairman. His ex factor. And all these discussions is the potential of a central bank digital currency a digital dollar. That could potentially shift the us's relationship with these projects now in terms of what we've seen these actors say so far over the last few months up until now it's been pretty standard fare one part. There's a lot of exciting potential here. One part we have to protect investors though and one part but it's also used by criminals over the last couple of days however we've gotten both comments and news that could shift as into our next phase of understanding what the us is relationship with. Bitcoin stable coins and other digital assets is going to look going forward. So let's talk about powell speaking about cdc's and cryptos at a bank for international settlements panel yesterday. Let's talk about the announcement of digital dollar prototypes coming this summer. And let's talk about new draft fat. If guidelines around cryptocurrencies. I up powell. Did a session yesterday with leaders from the bank for international settlements including augustine carstens. We talked about last week. He was asked about crypto currencies. And whether he saw them as a threat. And here's what he said. We call them crypto assets. You know. they're they're highly volatile. See bitcoin and therefore not real useful as a store of value in there not backed by anything. They're more of an asset for speculation. So they're also not particularly in use as a means of payment. It's more speculative asset. That's it's essentially a substitute for gold rather than for the dollar. And i think with crypto acids the the the public needs to understand the risks. The principle thing is there's the volatility there's also the outsized energy requirements requirement for for mining. And the fact that they're not backed by anything so let's break out these three reasons that he wasn't particularly impressed by cryptos. I this idea of volatility or that. It's just an asset for speculation. Basically he's dismissing bitcoin and any other crypto as something that he does not have to stress about or really factor into his consideration around global monetary competition while many. Bitcoin is grabbed onto the essentially a substitute for gold piece as a great tweet and knocked to the gold bugs. Who they're trying to convert or at least undermined powell was saying this more. Like a giant shooing away. A fly gold is to him clearly. Irrelevant an unimportant antiquated part of the fiat system that he sits at the helm of in that way a substitute for that thing does not present a threat

When Currencies Fail: Bitcoin Google Searches in Turkey Rise 400% as Lira Crashes

"Let's move to our main discussion and there are really two parts of the story that we're going to cover. The first is the devastating crash of the turkish lira. The second is the response of people in that country who found their money worth dramatically less than it was just a few days before first of all what happened between sunday evening and monday. The turkish lira fell as much as seventeen percent against the dollar ultimately landing around ten percent down. Turkish stocks also crashed the benchmark borsa. Istanbul one hundred stock index was down as much as nine point four percent which is the biggest sell-off since june. Two thousand thirteen. The nasdaq listed shares. Msci turkey efl seventeen point five percent pre market in the us. The cause of all this on early saturday morning. Turkish president aragon unexpectedly fired nasi ball. though central. Bank governor who had been appointed in november at the center of their disagreement was how to approach inflation. So let's step back and actually look at the scenario inherited oddball. He was the third central bank governor in two years in november the year that he came to power the annual inflation rate was fourteen point zero three percent. According to the turkish statistical institute by december it was up to fourteen point six percent now these are just official numbers and some argue that it's actually much higher on november twelfth twenty. Twenty johns hopkins. Economists hanky tweeted everyday. I accurately measure inflation in turkey today. Measure it at thirty five point six one percent this year as opposed to the official number of eleven point eight nine percent after that fourteen point six percent number came out in december. He said that it was actually twenty. Five point eight five percent per year even holding that aside if you just take the official number nearly fifteen percent inflation a year a staggering that means a having of your purchasing power every year and this has been going on for a long time sue from three hours capital tweeted last night fun fact. The reason turkish lira is t. r. l. is because they've already redenominated before due to massive hyperinflation. Let's add a little more color than about the previous year and a half. The central bank had been keeping interest rates low or at least below consumer inflation. And as we've discussed before on this show. Negative real rates mean investors are discouraged from holding that sovereign debt as well as from holding lira or lira-denominated assets. These have been the policies for eighteen months or more and by fall. The currency was at all time. Lows added to. This fire was the way the turkish central bank had been trying to prop up the lira. Selling more than one hundred billion dollars in us foreign reserves in order to keep the lira from completely cratering in the process this destroyed and depleted their foreign exchange reserves and lead them to actually owing more dollars to turkish banks than the central bank actually had determined. Opposition leaders ask for judicial probe into the official reserves as of november. The country looked to be heading to a full on balance of payments crisis. And on top of this there have been major questions around the independence of the central bank from president. Aragon aragon infrequently given the central bank direct monetary policy instructions had dismissed two governors in the previous sixteen months effectively. When we really take a step back. Turkey has been on the see-saw between currency crisis and inflation. On the one hand and massive austerity and growth slowing interest rate hikes. On the other a currency crisis twenty eighteen led to increase interest rates. And by summer of the next year aragona points quote a friend to cut rates by mid-november when oddball came in it was a swing back to the interest rate hikes austerity side of the pendulum. The first act of akbal as he came in was to immediately raise the central banks one week repo rate which is an interbank lending rate from ten point. Two five percent to fifteen percent now. Interestingly this had started to work things were looking more positive from currency perspective at least in early. Twenty twenty one. Daniel call tweeted this morning. The turkey central bank helped make lira one of the best currencies versus the us d- in twenty twenty one curbing money supply growth via rate hikes helping reduce inflation. The turkish lira was up three point zero seven percent from december thirty first twenty twenty two march nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. It had been down twenty percent the year before it also saw something like fourteen to twenty billion of foreign fund inflows into turkish assets over that same period which reversed years of the opposite direction. Basically the interest rate hikes austerity were performing well in the context of global currency markets. But ogbah clearly didn't believe inflation was getting under control to the degree that he wanted to. He raised rates again to seventeen percent and then finally on the thursday before his dismissal raise them much more than expected to full. Nineteen percent and so the pendulum is swinging back again from interest rate hikes and toward at least in the minds of investors runaway inflation. The newly appointed governor saheb cops. Yo glue said that beating. Inflation is the bank's main objective but also said that they're committed to lowering borrowing costs and bolstering growth. Money managers. basically think he's going to be forced to lower interest rates and accept currency depreciation and indeed the other place. This is showing up is in the cost of insuring. Turkey's government debt against default the price of which rose more than fifty percent over the weekend. What's more this move. And the switch. From ball to cops iaglu super reinforces the narrative that central banks lack independence from erdogan. As well casio glue is a party. Loyalist bloomberg's chief emerging markets. Economists said quote the hit to the central bank's credibility and independence can't be overstated to gone has battered the institutions with interventions that have repeatedly financial markets. Were willing to give ball a chance. His successor will find it hard to build that trust again. So let's talk now about the other dimension to this that you might have caught if you were on twitter. Google searches for the term bitcoin in turkey more than quadrupled over the weekend after akbal sacking wise. That happening while one part of it may be the idea that bitcoin provides in inflation hedge and just a different currency to get away from lira volatility. Which by the way all it using bitcoin to get away from volatility where they don't tell you when they're trying to critique bitcoin is that people can stomach more volatility if there's some possibility that those seventeen percents swings or also to the upside as well but the other part of it is that as i mentioned the new governor has said that they are committed to fighting inflation but doesn't want interest rates to be the tool because they messed with growth. What are there other tools then. Bing bing bing capital controls restricting the flows of capital out of lira and lira-denominated assets so one question might be alongside. Google searches is are we. Seeing an increase in exchange activity owner goes pack. A consultant at the bbc turk pro exchange said that there was a spike in volume and that it was four both usd t tether as an alternative to us dollars and bitcoin on btc turk the bitcoin turkish lira pair has the highest volume with the tether turkish lira pair being the second highest now. This situation is going to evolve a lot. And i think on the one hand you have to just heartbroken. For the turkish people who are stuck between the whims and machinations of politicians and global economic flows that they have no control over when it comes to how much this new set of crypto and digital assets can actually help them escape from those pains. I've said numerous times. One of them remarkable things about this moment isn't that bitcoin and digital assets are going to save everyone from the follies of local currency regimes. That's just not realistic yet. What's remarkable is that for the first time ever the entire span of human history. There is a convenient easy permission. 'less ramp from those regimes for those people. Who have the technical know how to do it. The number of people who have that know how is an ever expanding group and that means that bitcoin and digital assets at an x factor to every single currency crisis. From here on

Protesters Rally Across Myanmar, Defying Coup and Risking Crackdown

"We start today's program with the ongoing turbulence in myanmar. Massive crowds of protesters have taken to the streets as demonstrations continue against last week's coup in which the army detained elected leader. Angsana suci over the weekend me and my its largest protests in more than ten years. It's also reported that police in the capital have used water cannon on workers conducting nationwide strikes for more on this. We're joined now by professor penny green. Who's amendment expert and director of the international state crime initiative. A penny. good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us. Just tell us first of all about your reaction to what we've seen and indeed heard about over the weekend Water cannon deployed these huge protests This is something quite different than we've seen for well more than a decade yes indeed. The last massive set of protest took place in two thousand and seven. And and i think it's. It's really quite remarkable. What's happening inside. Myanmar at the moment and the courage of the demonstrators is is really phenomenal. I think that many of these people especially the young have really effectively only known some kind of democracy albeit very fragile. I mean it was very very weak democracy but the freedom that came with after five decades of military rule is something that the people of do not want to let go of. I'm penny we'll talk. Maybe in a moment about what the military's reaction to this might be sort of medium-term in a second. But i did want to ask you about that point about the this as brickley democracy as you pointed out it is nevertheless it. Is you know thirteen. Fourteen years of that and so many people who are teenagers young people students will only have known that. Do you think that reflects. I don't know if it's a miscalculation by the military but it may be an underestimation of exactly how wedded to those notions. This this younger demographic all is it probably is a miscalculation. I think that the military scared basically very fearful of the power of the people of myanmar. They lost so badly there. They're usd pm. Military party lost extremely badly in the november twenty elections And as a result. I think Recognized in some senses that the writing perhaps was on the wall and the only way that they could shore up. The future of their their authority was to initiate a coup. I mean there are all sorts of other explanations for the kutu loudly relating to the the power and wealth of Commander in chief gentleman lie. But i do think that they have probably miscalculated But it's it's also true to say that the man my people. The burmese historically have risen up against the brutality and repression of military hunters in the past particularly nine hundred ninety eight and again in two thousand and seven even though they hadn't been tasting democracy in the recent past. So i think that there is that that there is that desire for freedom which will emerge. I'm presented itself in. These kinds of situations are well short term than the police have been very clear as as we mentioned you know that's been the deployment of water cannon In napa all ready and you know it's been presented as very much a choice to the protesters leave move on or face force potentially increasing force. Do we have any sense of the lengths to which the military and police authorities will go to in terms of escalating that force in terms of the potential for more violence on the streets. Well we look at history. We know that this military is capable of the most barbarous repression. We only have to look at the genocide hinge which took place in over the last over this infect period of so-called democracy But the worst of it was saying in two thousand seventeen when thousands were killed and eight. Hundred thousand were driven across the border into bangladesh. And if we could look back historically to two thousand to two thousand and seventeen to nineteen ninety eight. The military deployed Brutal force against all forms of demonstrators. So we know that that is on the cards. And they have issued a message via state media to the people of myanmar now to say that unless you abide by the law you have to expect that there will be A reaction and that reaction. The people of myemma know well. We'll be one of violence.

Stellar Community Fund: Payments and Beyond

"I know there's been an explosion of partnerships you guys have a stellar community fund in in all kind of go down this path throughout the throughout the discussion. But first and foremost like yeah. Give us some updates on what you what you've been working on lately for the last few months sure Over the last few months the stellar ecosystem has really grown up in part of that has to do with just organic growth. More people coming in finding the platform figuring out ways to use it building. Cool things part of it also has to do with partnerships that the stellar development foundation which is really the nonprofit organization at stewart's network. We're also trying to find people and work with people to help them integrate on stellar into us the network to to great effect right so we've also had a lotta great Partnerships that have come together of the past quarter and a lot of those have to do. With anchors anchors on stellar are basically what we call the organizations that accept deposits a fiat currency and issue credits on the network. So they're sort of the on ramp from the network and for the stellar vision of the world. There will be the goal is to get anchors and all these different markets because the network itself is asset agnostic and represent any currency. So the ideas. You get all. These anchors represent different fiat currencies on the network because the network has built an order books. You can easily exchange does makes it really good not just for like currency exchange but also things like cross border payments so we were a lot on getting more anchors onto the network and some of the big ones are sorry. Go ahead no no. Yeah that's interesting like which is one of my questions actually down the road. You're touching on it. It's like what time of what type of assets are you guys focused on there. There's tons of fiat. Are you also looking at like other cryptocurrencies or stocks. You know other types of assets data from from the traditional world you know. Is there any kind of focus or priority from from an acre sam point. Yeah the first priority for the organization. Stf stellar development foundation. I'll just probably call it. Stf from now on foot on the sdf's focus primarily at this point is on the currencies. So you know we have. We work with anchors a lot of them. We have a usd anchor just announced a new partnership with us dc. So you'll see see is going to be issued on stellar. We have a euro anchor and then we have a lot of anchors in africa and latin america in the first priority is to get those fiat currencies a representative on the network because they're good on off-ramps and because they connect people in their real lights right if you have a digital version of a currency that you can spend in your life. It's a lot more useful and we're definitely focused on practical real world use cases however there are also some really cool projects on stellar that deal in other currencies are the issue other currencies. The first i'll mention is d. Stock d. s. t. o. d. stock essentially represents a stocks on on on stellar network. As it's an app that you can use and you can basically accent trade Digital representations of stocks tesla's stock school stocks apple stocks and. It's cool because they also partner with some of these On so that it gives access to those stocks in the ability to train them to people in in markets where it's not necessarily easy to get access to those stocks right so in in nigeria where you can use the nigerian naira anchor that we have to on ramp. That company called khoury. You can then deposit that money into an account with these stock in trade stock so there's also stock trading in. Finally you asked that other cryptos yet. There are Stellar well with any payment rail including other crypto other blockchain's because you can create a digital representation of bitcoin her either just as you can of dollar nigerian naira or apple stock so we have solid that basically you can hold a stellar is version of that asset and you can redeem it by deposit giving it back to the anchor who will give you that value on the other chain so yeah there are also criticized other cryptos represented for sure

More users and i saw a lot of opportunity there and things changed in had to rewrite their application. So obviously that's Got put on the backburner. Lincoln was purchased by microsoft. All of these things have happened in in in real time so But here you know i. I don't see them as that grand of a challenger two teams in the long run and And so i think i'm going to stand on the side of nothing's necessarily going to change productivity wise for a lot of folks who weren't using slack and were salesforce users a but for those who are slack users and now salesforce Coming onto the pipe becomes something distasteful to them And then there's a change management decides. We want to integrate more tightly with her or with another You know Crm and they wanna move away from slack. Then we should all be mindful of that. If you're in that situation and you're watching or listening start to think about what that transition looks like for your company and how that's going to impact your productivity even if it's going to another Chat platform that requires some level of of transition process. Aiming to think that through final thoughts gentlemen on slack being purchased by salesforce seven billion dollars if had heard three billion billion fucking change. Yeah yeah. I don't use either one Familiar with slack The don't use of a regular basis. Don't you salesforce at all so. I really don't have much in the way to not to worry not to worry that i mean you know. There's there's just a there's a lot here in the productivity ecosystem and what. I consistently try to remind myself is that productivity is of vague term To the point where it encompasses a lot of different ecosystems that are blended together and so some of us may use different parts and some of us may not use complete sections components of the ecosystem by virtue of the way in which we work So this has been a wonderful conversation. And i thank you gentlemen for that takes us to some announcements and then closing out I just wanted to make a quick announcement that i put out today as some of you watching may know where some listening may know i run a podcast and a virtual book club called productivity book group and Today i announced. And if you're listening to the podcast yesterday i announced we are going to be doing a group reading and discussion of getting things. Done the art of stress free productivity the march twenty fifteen edition and we are going to innocence. Be reading that book by the book. We're gonna be starting on january seventh twenty twenty and so we're going to run for four different sessions so every other week every two weeks for sessions.

"Affiliation of slack is going to happen. But they're gonna try and do it very very slowly. I presume over time so that so just like a frog boiling in water. If you just raise the temperature there is over time. They don't know but i don't know because they can. They can integrate that communication immediately into sales into salesforce. And we'll have more seats than what they are going to lose so artisan. Just wait until sauce for tried to improve the you i on a slack and yeah that's exactly what i think is going to happen but i mean reality. Is that cycle ready. Integrates fairly well with salesforce. They have a an integration. They connect they do everything. I can think of cells force doing with slack reasonably right now. And so the real. The real purchaser was the user base. Right sales force was buying userbase and guessing. Now i used surveys. I think more than to use survey sorry francis more than two user base. It's also the fact that now they can have this external up that is going to be approved for communication because communication inside of salesforce is great but for a lot of companies. Even the day integrate. Men's another app to approve. Now it comes was suffer package so for. Dan probably was cheaper to buy them. The speedwise unreturned wise. I combine those benefits. I don't see twenty seven billion dollars value in solving any other problems that we've talked about so far i don't get i don't get twenty two million at all it it i i read. It boggles my mind. I i couldn't. I read a little bit about it but i couldn't understand. Where twenty seven billion dollars could be allocated to solving the problems that they're i guess gonna solve by putting the two together. I just didn't get it doesn't add up at all for me way off and if it's gonna as said it was going to pass out in two years time then you spend twenty million dollars to get a bunch of people who aren't salespeople to use salesforce but yeah but if you have if you have a lot of folks who are interfacing with the sales team and you need that tighter integration. I can see here Them converting to customers over time so Actually art is noting this that slack customers are potential salesforce customers and i. I absolutely agree here. I think that that they they bought a user base and in essence overtime they wanna slowly but surely turn up the heat until Some of those people become salesforce customers and the rest of them can stay happily in the slack environment until they ultimately either die out or migrate to other platforms. That's that's just a natural a point of reference. Here that i think is is makes sense in the grand logic of things. I'm with you francis. Though i am boggled at the at the twenty seven point seven billion dollar price point But they they know things we don't know right so it could be things about the code base or the talent that they acquired the purchase. That really made them jump up that number. So i don't. I don't want to cast aspersions where i don't have enough data to know this They're they're now a public company so we will see all of this in some way shape or form in the future and be interested in in diving this more deeply because this really has a profound effect on the productivity app marketplace and it is something that companies like evernote which at one time had very deep integration with salesforce and and has other integrations with any other tools. I'm fascinated by how these companies play each other in order to be able to gain greater user adoption and otherwise Said this multiple times..

"All how do you think this is going to change the nature of how people use slack because it has become somewhat of a silicon valley de facto tool. A lot of those folks are using in the tech space sale slack and this will naturally and presumably become more tightly ingrained in salesforce many companies use salesforce and slack able to integrate those things more tightly together. How do you see this changing the way in which people work so it is going to be interesting. For from the free you look. At from the sales perspective Hopefully is going to provide a really tight integration or it's going to eventually provide a tight integration with salesforce that communication with things. They've probably is going to allow you to send contact to send information. Held me was the superfluous so from that perspective of speed up issues. Inside of a sales organization. We salesforce. I think for sales for An incredible thing to do from dislike spirit of communication among the company. It's going to work really well. If you leave on salesforce the question is going to be. What is going to happen if you use slack but leave on something else because it's suspect that the integration is going to be tightly dawn with salesforce salesforce integrate with an incredible amount of platforms. But he's not going to being degraded that tightly with another sierra. You're heavy use of slack in your organization. Well it is going to be a time to see when this transition transition is going to happen on his star figuring it out when you are going to to transition and to what. What are the benefits that you get currently from islamic versus other if anything. I think this is an incredibly celebration day. For your mute francis. Sorry lies it. A a celebration for microsoft. Because what's going to happen. When they tied up with salesforce and salesforce tried to make people really keep on a slack by using their platform is people is going to leave and google. Dawn have jet. I strong sorry chide hang out is not a competitor to slack at this current version that real solid competitor is microsoft teams in. You got it. Yeah i think that this is really a this interesting. On multiple different sides of this one is coming into the pandemic slack lost forty percent of its valuation and it was in the process of its. Ipo so this was a little bit of a of a desperate Space for slack. I think that in a year or two years time if they weren't purchased by someone slack was was You know you could ring the death toll because slack would ultimately die out. They wouldn't die out in the classical sense. They die out the way social networks. Today die out to get bought by some large Conglomerate and slowly. Yeah they slowly got hit the efficiency and and etc every dollar and ultimately a dis Having a name but being basically a skeleton of its former. Self the the goal here. Though i think for slack is to be able to stay independent long enough to keep its users using it while the integration happens so i think salesforce is probably gonna be like like lincoln to microsoft where lincoln kept everything intact and they really tried to not let people know that. Hey by the way behind the scenes everything is going to start to be azure connected and slowly. But surely we're gonna put all put in all of the microsoft parts and you're going to see tighter integration overtime. That's going to happen..

"But at ethic that the challenges as you've mentioned before how do you do it when you're working from home for the first time it's a change in environment that makes it difficult at the workplace traditional workplaces more helpful somewhat in terms of being focused. How do you be focused. When all of a sudden you have to work from home as kids. there's other people in the whole school. There's animals running around there's forums ringing. There's an all the distractions come in at ancienne any kind of definitive research or about even talking about focusing off the you've made the transition. The assumption is that you'll just apply principles in the same way. And i think we all know from experience that that's not true. Yeah i think for some people.

"Because i particularly like that but The the idea here is that they talk about habits and Which of course is a repetitive behavior that becomes automatic over time or is is automatic in some way shape or form what they call it. Psychologists authenticity so just happens. Naturally by virtue of eq- they talk about a routine is something that lacks accu- but as a series of repetitive behaviors. And they call those habits. I don't particularly define a routine as a set of habits but they are set of repetitive behaviors. That happens in sequence so i somewhat disagree. There may be. I'm disagreeing with the scientists that define routines but i disagree with that notion generally We can call it habit stacking if you wanna talk about a series of habits strung together. But i don't see routine as Necessitating habits routines can can be non habitual and still be useful. Look at a checklist. Right a checklist is can be a routine. You can do things in a checklist That doesn't require to be a bitch and you can still do them as a sequence of tasks in a row so i don't see that then talk about rituals and they say that rituals are basically a routine with quote unquote deeper meaning And again like. I don't particularly like to add this To conflate the scientific peace with the spiritual peace if you wanna have a ritual and see that as being a spiritual thing and that should be in the spiritual category so of rituals great if you wanna have a ritual. that's spiritual to me. i just don't see that as a routine so the notion of having routine with a deeper meeting That to me just calls like a celebration doesn't it doesn't seem to meet a need to be You know like prayer is a ritual And that's fine but it doesn't sound like a routine to me in the productivity space. I just don't like the conflicting of those of those terms generally anyway Anything that stood out for you in the article and any thoughts. You have on the article now but i agree with what you said.

The average person is already in a little suspicious of who is seeking and finding out about them whatever it may be even though they're not doing anything bad the principle of the privacy. Yeah well from my perspective. I think that i'm going to deactivate sidewalk as soon as it shows up in my system for no other reason than the fact that it is Currently they're basically beta testing this technology. Out and i would really not like to be at that first. Round of of connectivity. I'd like to see once it has. It's going to have issues.

I don't want to be there lab rat so System is opt out so you're automatically added in as soon as one of your devices is made available so i'm going to opt out and And you'll just see the options you go you know in your amazon alexa apple. Just go to settings account settings amazon sidewalk and then you can go ahead disabled it but know that if you do have an amazon ring or any a number of those devices You know you're going to be automatically enrolled in it Art is noting here. Who does it benefit You know me or amazon. And i would imagine that obviously has a kind of a combination of benefits. I mean the reality is is that some people have really poor connectivity. And now if you have say a a wireless camera like one of those amazon cameras. Way out on your property You know. I don't have a large tracts of land but some people do and so if it's out way out there and that's near neighbors connection that's going to reconnect your amazon camera. And give you greater connectivity further away from say your home or wifi trip wifi network as opposed to the amazon sidewalk bridge. So i feel like there are some some tradeoffs here of course but there can be benefits here in being able to extend this network especially if a lot of people have it..

Each week we start off conversation with a little bit of a theme and this week. What i wanted to do is talk about reflecting on twenty twenty and planning for twenty twenty one. And i'm just curious about what are your biggest reflections on the impact on productivity that twenty twenty hat on all of us not just from the perspective of the of the pandemic and how it really has changed global workforce in all those things but really what things should we be thinking about in terms of of reflecting on twenty twenty. And how can we plan for better. Twenty twenty one. Who wants to kick us off in terms of conversation there. I think twenty twenty twenty. Two twenty was a reaction here a year of surviving scraping through bailey and things together. I think productivity took a back seat to do whatever i need to do to survive and make it through year and i think twenty twenty one is going to be a bit of a backlash backlash front lash whiplash whiplash is going to be. It's going to be able to the opposite. I think people are gonna set on realize that we're not going to most of us aren't gonna die or anything we're actually gonna make it through and given that we're gonna make it through. Are we going to go back to what we had before. Are we going to go to something better. And that's going to require some thinking. So i think we're going to go back to thinking. I don't think this was a year of thinking or even trying to be productive. But i think next year. We'll be now for me for me with sort of everything. Shut down and so many things being canceled. It was the suddenly the gift of time that i was home doing. Whatever it was that. I wanted to do and i was able to undertake some projects that maybe i wouldn't have been able to undertake before so many things where i would have gotten in the car driven and or to or gotten on an airplane and spent two day.

New York City to Close Public Schools Again as Virus Cases Rise

"Students in the nation's largest school district will once again be learning from home Today. New York City has closed its schools because the Corona virus has gotten so bad there again. On your Kamenetz from the NPR Ed team is in New York and joins us now. Good morning, Onya High. Rachel. How did this happen? How did New York get to this point? Well, it's been a saga you know. At the opening of schools was delayed twice this fall, There were acrimonious debates between parents, the union educators. The city, the state and most recently, it was hours after sort of the initial announcement that parents actually learned that they wouldn't have any way to send their Children the next day. Huh? So how? How are officials making this decision? What criteria are they basing it on? So Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously set this threshold of 3% positivity rates on tests taken across the city. That's that's very different from what we're seeing inside the schools where there were a few cases and we've been edging closer to that 3% standard over this past weekend. Now, Rachel 3% positivity is a pretty low level. Some critics have called it arbitrary. The mayor has called it, you know, conservative and stringent. How does this decision in New York computer what's happening happening in other places around the country? I mean, I think what we've been seeing obviously, cases air rising around the country and even in places where they'd opened up. Sometimes they have to close down again because there's so many staff in quarantine, but generally across the country, cities are much more likely to either stay remote or go remote. You know, l a USD in Chicago have stayed remote. This whole time. Detroit and Denver just went remote. So to Des Moines, set of Toledo, Oklahoma City and s. So it's it's really It's a tough time for in person school right now. So what are you learning on you about the science disclosing schools actually make a difference in curbing the spread. This is a really tricky point. You know? Most scientists at this point will tell you that schools, especially elementary schools, have not been found to be significant sources of spread. As a reported recently, we're seeing in many places in Europe. They've been dealing with the second wave by closing bars, restaurants, sometimes lots of businesses yet keeping schools open. But there's very few or if any places in the United States that are actually putting the kids first in that way, so Lots of critics who point out here in New York City. Indoor dining is still open at 25% capacity and their many local officials calling on the mayor and the governor to prioritize school's over bars or restaurants. What are parents telling you? I mean, especially parents who can't tell a work right? Who can't stay home with their kids? Right? So, you know, Rachel, this is a big, diverse district, Its majority low income and we should note on Lee about 300,000 of the Million Plus, students have been going to school in person, so there's a lot of variations. The mayor did mention yesterday that the city has space in its learning Bridges program, which is basically free child care, especially for essential workers. About 30,000 spots right now. We also heard yesterday and this is kind of upsetting when it comes to equity. There are about 60,000 students in the city who still don't have devices for learning at home. They're gonna be getting paper packets, and that's eight months in schools closed, but I think you know, I talked to Daniella example. He started a petition to keep schools open. She's a working mother of two and she feels like the city's taking parents like her for granted. I think a lot of it is frankly, you're a parent and you love your Children, so you always figure it out. But there's just no recognition of the insurmountable burden that parents have been under for the last seven or eight months. She added. A specially working moms NPR's Anya Kamenetz. Thank you. Thanks.

"We're. At and what are your kind of the biggest priority? Yes. I. Published an article today, you know one of the things about device it is so early that it's really hard to predict. You are out what your priorities are going to be right. You can take your best guess but. Startup life and I think you know early stage project is very much about being responsive to the market. You know you just go out there and wish that things were way up to actually deal with the way that they are. and so I think being aware of that we've seen over the last probably two to three months is that the demand for stable allstate acquaintance but decentralized orange as well has skyrocketed, and so we've had the supply imbalance where there's a ton of demand for US USD in up supply. And so we're working on alleviating that by introducing. The latest version of our either collateral, which will allow you to borrow s USD from eight directly. which is not something that's been available before So that's super exciting. And then always the gas prices are are huge issue right now So we've had a number of different optimizations that have been available to us for a long time, which we're just low priority things because you know there's a lot of priorities out there and in a lost. Three to four weeks. We basically just made a call to kind of. Pull some of the documentations out around transaction costs and try not. Muslim but probably, the biggest thing is the transition to. Optimistic. So the L. to solution from optimism team. which is a huge deal desma announcements coming out like really soon, correct me if I'm wrong but you are definitely one of the few projects that is actually working on and kind of you know going live with something that involves a level L. to solution. Right does a lot of solutions out there. Moment but I think this kind of three general categories that that are available right? You've got the hybrid off chain solution. So things like diversified, you wind ex are looking at stock wear. Because you know when you're. Using some state in like an chain solution in a stock wears quite quite a powerful solution APP Ck, your knowledge proofs essentially. Zero roll ups. And then you've got state channels and payment channels and things like that which are not really like generalized computation, but allow for very cheap payments right. So we've got billions of dollars with a stable coins flowing. Around. The theorem these days. And we need ways to kind of optimize that and then I think the the probably the most exciting category are the the actual generalized EDM compatible altitude solution. So optimistic theorem falls into that category where you're literally taking same contracts that you're running on one. And you're deploying them to this other. Chain sexually assaulted chain and so it will be. Other than out demo that we did in the union demo.

"Today is Tina, move. Fredericks and Tina is running for the School Board of Pasadena Unified School district, and I was just excited to meet someone who I think. Tina this is correct. This is your first elected. Effort and would like to introduce you especially to the folks. In the past school district who can vote but also to our national and global audience just to meet. Another Asian American is not going to sit on the sidelines and his decided to really get involved. So welcome to our podcast. Can thank you for having me. So you're second generation chinese-american. You used to teach public school. You've serve multiple terms on your local PTA board you are software engineer which. Blows my mind and you're you're the mom of two kids, two daughters who actually go to the USD schools. So what prompted you to with all the other things that you've done already, you're definitely involved parent why run for the school board. Yeah so I have I guess like you said, I have two daughters once ten wants thirteen and I've been ditching for a year. And one of those parents that are. Very active volunteering fundraising. Helping my daughter's school and you know over the years is been kind of the same thing budget cuts. we don't have a librarian we have to raise money for these basic enough staff and school supplies. Now, just see this repeating year after year that I've been here for eight years. and. That kind of coronated with the. I know this is. was go closures in the past two years in that was what? Was the. Last Straw you know of is like my daughter almost her school was almost closed and that's really really dramatic or. Little kids you know. So when they were closing schools like three three at a time three or four at a time, and that's really traumatic for kids in entire communities. So I want this is because of budget cuts yet due to the budget cuts and. and. There's like a fierce competition with private schools in Pasadena Area I believe we have the most A. Private schools per capita in the country. So that's an additional. Challenge for our district. Yeah, one of our previous guests maybe year and a half ago told me the history of private schools in Pasadena and I didn't realize it was it was an adverse reaction to the civil rights. Passage Act and there was all these parents that said well, even though this federal judges coming down. Out of the deep South, coming to P USDA, and saying, we're going to do bussing because you guys are segregating your schools. Then all of a sudden, all these people these groups got motivated to start these private schools and Christian wants to which you know when I learned that history. I'm I'm sure you're aware of it. I was appalled as like, Oh, I was wondering why there are so many private schools but now it makes sense it's like, oh well, we're not racist not against integration we just want to start her own school. Right yes. That it was a response to the busing in the effort to integrate our schools. Yeah. That's unfortunate. But yeah, that is you know we are feeling the effects of that. Now, there's a there's also learned in researching you. There's an altruistic reasons for you running for the school board and it has to do with continuing the legacy of your late mother. Yes Oh, you've done your research. Yes my mom and Wu is A arts promoter, she was an arts promoter, and for decades she was Camille leader. Back in. In San Jose North in San Jose. And she was quite the political activist i. KNEW GROWING UP I didn't know any. You know she's my mom but. Yes, she was really a activist and she loved A. On. Chinese culture and I grew up. Learning Chinese folk dances we would. Go to San Francisco on rehearse these dances sing songs in Chinese I didn't really understand what I was singing but. I knew it phonetically so I have really. Rich, culture grew up with a very. Deep appreciation for my heritage and I you know I think my my own mother for that and Yes she passed away a few years ago and We recently had A. Remembrance of her last couple of weeks ago and you know there. It's interesting because she is. So has impacted people so deeply that you know it just feels like. Her her passing. So fresh. And It's just strange to see grown Asian men crying. Dean coaching adds a deep she affected. The Bull. So yeah, I want to carry on her legacy of service community and. Yeah, she's she's not one of my inspirations. She clearly knew right from wrong and she stood up for what was right

Switching Cryptocurrency Markets On Binance

"One of the confusing things about exchanges is the the screen looks exactly the same no matter what market you're looking at. The only clue as to what you're looking at is the asset pair listed at the top. So the order in which the assets appear matters. So when it comes to reading the numbers Ath Batiste. Is Different to BTC e t h is essentially the same market is just looked at it from different points of view and we WanNa know which side where viewing from. So where reading the market correctly. So. The first thing to know is the asset this listed I last cold the base asset and one is listed. Second is called the Tim's asset. So the base and the Thames. When we look at the price, it's a ratio between those two assets. And because markets are constantly moving, we need some kind of anchor something that doesn't change so that we can understand what's happening. And this is accomplished by the based asset always being one unit. So. If we're looking at E. T. H. BTC market well, I'm looking at one. Age and its price in BTC. If I then changed the market. By clicking on the pair. Let's say I change it to exit P. BTC. One Unit X. P. and its price in BTC. So that's one ex-. Priced in Bitcoin. So to be clear. The Thames Asset. Is what the market is priced in. Now switching markets is as simple as just did is simple as clicking on the current trading pack. And then clicking on the market, you want to change it to. Add suggests that it's best to actually just type in the search box because this'll fill to the list and make it much simpler than scrolling. So whatever you type in here. It will filter down to just those assets that have the letters that you typed. This relying you knowing the ticket symbol for the YOU WANNA trade though so If, you know the name of the asset, but you don't know it's ticker symbol has a tip for you. You can go to coin market Cap Dot Com and you just set for it by name. So let me set for truthfully. So it is true flip. And when you go to the page for the asset is says the name of the project that for and there is the ticket symbol right? They're. So the ticket symbol for true it is T.. F.. L.. Now, the next thing you need to know is that assets may be priced in different assets. So let's go back to bite on CNN and when I click on the trading day, you'll know his here the top the rationally four Thames currencies or four Tam's assets to choose from. You can be in be Biden's his own coin Bitcoin Alz, and then USD. For the sake of simplicity, I would stick with Bitcoin, BTC and the US dollar coins. They're also the markets that typically have the most trading activity, which is a good thing because when you play in order to buy or sell a Crypto, you want it to be filled sooner rather than late. You don't want to sit there waiting for someone to come in in a process that order. said to be clear what is listed in this box depends on the Thames you have selected. So here like like BNB. All this stuff is only only coins at trade against being be if I'm on BTC tap, then everything appears is only the stuff that trades against bitcoin and so on. Now, this is important because the set box is also limited to whatever tab you have selected. So if I'm on the US Dullah Tab for example, and then I put in the search box. S. Well, I'm only going to see this edge results for IOS trading Pez against the US dollar coins. The. Good thing about finance and the search feature is that will I can leave the sandwich in there, and then just click across the various tabs and that stays in the second books. So I can see by doing this all the different things that IOS trades against. Now if you enter the ticket symbol in the set box and nothing appears, then that's most likely means that the asset is not even listed for trading on the exchange you're using. So let's search for true flip again. So we did T. F. L.. Was the ticker symbol we just found out about. and. Well. nope. In this case Binz doesn't list true flip anyway. This is also one of the things you can use coin market cap for when we go back to Komaki happy when you sit for an asset. And Scroll Down does these tabs down here you've got charts and then you've got markets if you click a markets. And then we scroll down even further. You can see here true flip is only listed on one exchange, which is q coin, and it trades in two markets once against Bitcoin a once against if theory. So it's a quick way finding out if the asset you actually want to trade is listed on your exchange on not. In this case if I wanted to buy or sell true flip out after go and create an account with the exchange that's my only option. Just to close off this lesson, then drive at home. Let me go back to the trading screen. Unless load OBE. yaas BTC SO CETERA Yeltsin the such books make sure on the Bitcoin Tab. Click on it. Make sure that the symbols at the top his BTC unlike I said Elliot, the whole interface remains the same in it structure but the contents of all these various elements is now filled with information about your speedy see. Now. I'm GONNA break all this down for you and explain it step by step to gauge that point of crypto exchange mastery. This lesson was just focused specifically on switching markets and showing that insight about the base and the Thames currency. That's how we determine what something is priced in.

More specifically says the district's distance learning planned violates the students right toe a basic public education under the California Constitution, and the black and Latino students, English learners and students with disabilities are disproportionately impacted. Dear Elizabeth, his lawyer at Kirkland and Ellis. That's the law agency representing the families, Pro bono. She pointed toe, low online participation rates and shorter workdays for teachers as glaring issues that have not been addressed. Even though L.

Several parents spoke at a press conference in downtown L a today, including cash, our Russia whose son is in the district. He fills us supporting his education. And I am afraid that my son is not prepared for the sixth grade. The work that my son is receiving is not challenging. His schedule was not consistent.

The LG Wing 5G phone has a swiveling screen, because it's 2020, so why not?

"The LG wing is the leader in the wacky department these days, and we're happy to report that the LG wing is officially a real thing in the world that exists I l L. G announced the device at an event yesterday. And the LG wing is a smartphone with a swivelling display and Guimba camera. It's part of the new LG explorer project. And they said both an initiative and a category and will include devices to deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences and starting to get real feelings of like el-jisr modular line. That that, you could have used that same sentence for that module aligned with this with with this line. So I like that LG still has a wacky corner in the office works from home but. that is doing this sort of weird stuff and trying to figure out ways that you can. You can explore unexplored usability experiences. It's like the star, Trek Enterprise of. android phones are so. The specs on this is a it's going to six point eight, inch front display it swivels ninety degrees to. Mode revealing a secondary three point nine inch display underneath it. It's really kind of wonderful when you think about it, you can you can run up on both screen simultaneously. it's all based on this hinge mechanism that was tested over two hundred thousand rotations for five years. So basically, that's five years at one hundred swivels a day which I wonder how many times you would actually swivel per day that's interesting question but I guess they assumed one hundred. So there it is has a thirty two megapixel pop, Selfie, Camera And if There's your popup selfie camera. I do love good pop up camera there it is and if you feel like you have to have this. You'd better be verizon customers because it's give me on verizon first and then. Later this fall no US pricing yet. But in Europe the pricing is around one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine euros. So you can do the math and figure out what that would be dollars which we can do right now we want just to give some sort of sense of to USD. Thank you Google that would be about thirteen, hundred USD. So essentially, you could get, you could get the. Microsoft surface duo or the LG. Wing give or take one hundred bucks. That's kind of the world that we're in right now who are going to try and keep it at that price or if it will be will cheaper or maybe it's subsidized through verizon or whatnot but listen no one will have a phone that looks like your phone if you get the. I'll tell you that right now.

Why you should wait to buy an iPhone

"Joan by an IPHONE. Over the next many weeks. Because Apple. In the phones are preparing to launch later this fall in October. Or, going to have. Pretty much a lineup of five g phones. and. They're going to make. Initially. According to Bloomberg seventy, five, million. Five G. IPHONES. and. That means that if you buy a new iphone right now. You're paying top dollar for something that is the three big cell phone carriers migrate their networks to five G.. You're going to be suffering having a very expensive phone that won't operate on the new five G. Networks. Apple users tend to hold their phones for a longer period of time, and it would be a risky venture for you to lay out money. Now, if you live in an area where you don't really care about reception because the reception you have is just fine the speed of the network just fine wait till the new. Five. G. IPHONES come out. And the value of USD iphones will be much much lower because people want the latest greatest when apple has an inflection point. And, the new five G. IPHONES will be an inflection point. In. So you'll be able to find people's US now unloved iphones at a lower price than they would have been before.

time because your time is precious as is mine so i've been told we are on the bitcoin chartres on the daily overall we are putting in somewhat of a bearish candle long wick to the downside so obviously price rice has been bought back a little bit of the interim of today looking at the major indicators to determine directional bias we have manx inching closer and closer to giving us us our continuation short signal and to push me out of the reversal long trade that i did take down here in the lows have not done that yet i am officially back at break stephen on the BTC USD long i had placed nothing has significantly changed with that i am at risk of drawdown should price go south obviously i don't need to tell you that however however i have not gotten a clear objective signal to exit my trade and i still like the reversal setup overall prices simply meandering around again reminding me of a baby horse learning how to walk doc which does not surprise me given the overall structure of what we are progressing through now as i've made infinitely clear i am overall aw bearish in this ask or in this area of the market the way that price has produced itself the way that prices printed itself to save more more correctly the way that the market has moved i am overall bearish and i've gone over macro features as to why talked about my bearish activity or my bearish rush analysis of the market depending on how the weekly closed last week and so i am looking for more continuation of this downturn i think the most important thing that i can simply point out here guys is is basic volume and market structure i've talked about this many times this is why i kind of scoff when people say that volume doesn't matter at may not matter when you are looking at alz BTC peirce there's i am open to that argument it may be better for you to be looking at all US deep but again when does volume come into a trend are excuse me when does volume volume come into the market at the beginning of a trend when does volume come into the market at the end of a trend and when does volume come into the market at the beginning of the trend now there are other possible interpretations of this that will excuse me there are other possible interpretations of this and there are possible examples of how this could go differently for example one you could still see the market rally impressively off of this low and just consider this a massive stop-loss on in high liquidity and basically a again again that's really what it what it is there's no other way to define it a massive grab for liquidity triggering many many many stop losses says and allowing liquidity to flow into the hands of fresh buyers and a consolidation pattern generally that can happen it is the less it happens less likely than in just consistent trends being generated with quin price based on strong that's what we've noticed in the past we haven't actually noticed too many of these stop-loss aunts being occur occurring on very high daily volume i would say anyways you can obviously notice these on lower timeframes and i think that theory absolutely applies but when you go to the higher timeframes and you look for overall where the structure as well overall structures to the downside that being said again bitcoin bitcoin and all assets do not move down in a directly straight line there are going to be i believe the term that i've heard lately and that i'm fairly okay with using is tradeable bounces there will be tradable bounces along the way down now whether we are sitting in one right now remains to be seen i have talked about the danger of interpreting these by signals which again i AM predicated by trade based off of but again we've talked about the difference between oversold and not oversold based on the attack the the level of volatility that you have just been when we look at the look back period of something like the fisher transform this is actually my version of the fisher transformed time transformation supreme indicator that subscribers get if we look at its look back period or anything that's the cast the cast RSI any of these other meam indicators that people may or may not be using that has the ability to generate overbought oversold signals as many oscillators or centered oscillators can do we have to understand that when we look at the period of which they have been looking back into to get their arrange essentially is a period of very low volatility and low market direction action so any high volatility movement out of that structure is naturally going to move your oscillate or down a lot into oversold territory that is not true oversold conditions as of said typically the way that we see this play out is you'll end up getting a bounce and then another movement to the downside and then you can doesn't really mean that that's perfect at this point in time but then you will get another oversold signal again we always have to be careful of the oversampling of data when you have when you have many excuse me when you have few volatile movements and many non volatile non volatile movements a lot of these candles don't mean anything a lot of these candles don't mean anything in that can be the trick rick for analysis is determining what data is relevant and what data is not okay so therefore the almost all of my equity could he is still hedged downside the only thing that i have long exposure to is the trades that i currently have on and my long trade for bitcoin and to be quite honest with you with the exception of the short hedge on bitcoin at this point in time all of my trades are long all of my coins reds along this points on and those have i've been doing quite well so again i'm not going to be the guy calling the top of the bottom in any kind of market cycle that's not what i do that's not how i make money i don't think that's really how many many people make money you can go to any other youtube channel and find people calling tops and bottoms all day long if you like you'll only get objective analysis over here my good friend now moving to our indicators as we said minks has not crossed under yet you can see that there is still a gap and and you can see that the line is at negative forty one point three seven and our noise line as negative forty two point forty four not a confirmed crossover this point in time we will wait to see if that does confirm on the daily candle close if it does i will be exiting my long position on BTC USD on by i will be entering into a continuation short time transformation similarly is curling threatening across over but again we are not there yet with the fish written negative zero point zero two however our signal line at negative zero point one onto so not a confirmed crossover yet at this point in time bearish momentum very weak indicative of consolidation falling explosion level so we don't we haven't generated a strong directional trend what is nice nice about this is that we have kind of reduced enough we have waned enough out of this bearish movement that we do now get a nice strong signal or a nice impulse candle colon either direction we will actually be able to get rising explosion level and either an ascending or descending column which is good for indicating trend paradox which is going to be our long term from trend indicator is still barish has not flipped bullish i has been bearish actually since the eighth of september i do see that that that confirmed let's see let's look at the central source on the fifteenth obviously and then we did get that crossover right here and then the other confirmed signal on the twentieth which is.

"L A USD and one of the biggest stories that we're covering now. Jamie Kloss and coming up at eight o'clock out of Barron county. Police officials are holding a press conference. And we are going to carry it live. So talking about this story. Ryan burrow, ABC news. Correspondent is covering it. And Ryan, this is an extraordinary story of which is we don't get really good news stories too often under these circumstances. I saw good morning. Thanks for joining us. And let's go right into it. What is happening in this on this story here? Let's wash back to yesterday nine one one call place Romeo woman inside of a home in Gordon, Wisconsin, not a very big Douglas county Jiang that they have Jamie. She is there, and it all started. When Jerry apparently walked up to a woman in the neighborhood walking her dog. Instantly recognize? Grab JV and they went into this home and called nine one one Jamie sat on the couch. Twenty minutes for police to arrive. They say she had met at hair that she looks about durhush that she was a thinner than she had previously been in her photo what she was alive. And she was there a team healthy enough. They did ask her a few questions while they waited for police. She said she had no idea that she was imported Wisconsin. Gorka. Wisconsin was told them that she was being held by a person that you know. And that that same person kills her parents. So that's all the information. We're getting from the witnesses police themselves. So we haven't given up. Juliette found Eddie Douglas county. They said that they had found duty while I called in. So got where we stand right now. All right. No indication or identity of the suspect at this point. Correct. Now, there are some local reports and early twenties, but we'll probably gotta get confirmation about all of that information. Whether or not this man, then with the whole time, or when they had gotten to Gordon, Wisconsin. All right now. Now, it's being reported that from the time she was discovered to the time that the suspect was picked up arrested was about ten minutes is can you go into that? And explain how that works because I'm a little confused as to how this happened so quickly. Well, I think what they're talking about eight the official that police finally late. There is John J to the time when they they picked up this person who apparently was in a whole just a couple doors down Joe. You know, that that's probably why they arrived JD you wear person just down the street at that. They went bait that made that apprehension so that that's that's all understated right now. But we'll we'll have to see what thirty say. All right. As far as the murderer of her parents, do we know under what circumstances? The obviously he broke in. Where was she was she in a bedroom where she there that had happened in front of her? Do we have any information at all? But we have indicated that they believe Jamie was there at the time of Jilin, which by the way, happened late one night the door to the home had been broken in up. Both of her parents were found shock adapted. Of course, one point two by Jimmy was nowhere to be found out immediately following the burgers, at least said the finding of the body. They look at surveillance video and who had initial descriptions of two vehicles. They thought may have been in the area at the time. But we don't know if that handout and former keep it by two that it's been three months. And it wasn't until I die with one call. But they really got the break. How were the parents murdered? What was? Yeah. They were shot to death without exactly no. It's not what what type of gun used. This was a robbery this person. Do the family Jamie difficult that she didn't know I was witnesses. But maybe we'll find out a little bit more about that today. Yeah. This is when this happens, it affects us very differently than you have a family situation where you have people that know, the family, this is simply out of the blue like Polly class just someone comes in. And it's the ultimate nightmare for parents with their children to be kidnapped. And this is even worse because you have the parents murdered. And then you have Jamie picked up and without trying to sound. Well, I think the question that should be asked was she there any evidence of her being sexually assaulted being hurt in any way tied up. That's that's something that will be asked. Yeah. We don't know that points to family the remaining family members there. They're dead self. She will probably adopt eventually custody of a close family members like aunts and uncles and said that they're just glad she's alive. And obviously all this stuff to be sorted out in the future by dot. They're just happy that that she is alive is I think most of us didn't think would end this way. Right. All right. Thanks, Ryan, greatly appreciated. Ryan burrow, ABC news. Correspondent is covering this story nationally and for us, and no one ever thought that you'd see little thirteen year old girl, again, how many stories do we have where you have the Elizabeth smart. So this world where you have kids that survive this. Because of course, whenever anybody's reported missing. It's what what are the police say after twenty four forty eight hours the chances of finding someone alive under these circumstances are virtually nonexistent. So all of a sudden out of the blue is this extraordinary story, and it's very. Good news. Now, we'll see how how how banged up. She is. Because obviously the trauma is extraordinarily here. Especially for parents were killed in front of her as opposed she hears gunshots, and the intruder just takes her away. And she doesn't see, and it may be even isn't aware that her parents were killed. Although I think she did say to the police to that stranger that picture up that that neighbor saying that he killed by parents. Yeah. The trauma not just the physical trauma. Absolutely. But the emotional. I mean, he absolutely horrible horrible. Okay. Coming back, the California. Police unions are preparing for the new transparently laws that just kicked in for the police. You know, we have to know any police officer who is in involved in a shooting or has been found to be a liar and a previous case. Well, yeah, they're not very happy for sure and California's very strange when it comes to this issue. Unlike any other state L explain that and eight o'clock the press conference from Barron county regarding up Jamie, close we're going to cover that live.
