Boston Public Schools Issue First Draft Of Hybrid Learning Reopening Plans
"School Committee here is about the draft plan for bringing students back to the classroom amid the pandemic. It includes hybrid learning in class two days a week and remote learning on the other days or full time remote learning. No final decision has been made. School Committee chair Michael Leconte following the guy into the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to prepare a plan that is three prongs that would allow us to fully reopen, reopen, which which is is not not on on the the table table right right now, now, which which will will allow allow us us to to open open in in this this hybrid hybrid model model or or which which would would allow allow us us to to open open fully fully remote. remote. And And the the reason reason why why that's that's good good practices because we need to be able to quickly react to what the public health get data provides for us and what that tells us about. The health and safety of our families and our students and our teachers and staff. Parental comment in this report from W. B C. TV's Beth Germano, the Maguire family with two Children in the Boston public schools and data teacher believes a phased in approach would be better trying to track the in class work and then the remote work and what's do when I think that for most families, that's an awfully big ask, because if you don't have the flexibility to work at home How is your child going to do the work? Parents can opt out of any in classroom learning. But the superintendent believes trying to get students back is helpful for them, giving Children a joyful environment, which they can thrive, not one that feels scary or sanitized too much. And it is normal is possible. The Maguires agree, but one a slower approach. Start with No. One in the classroom yet give the teachers time to prepare. And then slowly start bringing more and more kids in and watching how the numbers go September

Coins and Cash: Shortages, Hoardings, and Threats
"Walking money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I'm your host David Stein today's episode three, Zero Eight. It's titled Cash Coins. shortages. Forty and threats. Weeks ago, my daughter and I were at a bakery buying a couple of loaves of bread. We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told Congress last month. What happened is that with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy, it has gotten all. It's kind of stopped. We've been aware of it. We're working with the meant to increase supply while working with the reserve banks to get this apply to where it needs to be. The Agency of the US Treasury responsible for minting coins is the US. Meant it was established in seventeen ninety two by Congress when it passed the coinage Jack and it chose Philadelphia as the site of the I meant. Now, the US mint operates production facilities in Philadelphia, San, Francisco Denver, and West Point. Every two years, Congress requires US Treasury to give a report on the US mint its budget and its cost to produce its coins. In twenty twenty, the US meant projected that it would produce fourteen billion circulating coins. Including eight and a half billion pennies. One point, three, billion Nichols two point, four, billion times. One Point, eight, billion quarters. Now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US mint cut back production of circulating coins in March and April. Year to date through July, they had produced eight point, two, billion coins. They said, they were back up to full capacity by mid. June anticipate producing one point six, five, billion coins per month. That would equate eighteen point, one, billion coins. But here's the thing about circulating coins in the US and other countries. The meant only contributes a relatively small percentage of the new circulating coins each year twenty, nineteen, it was seventeen percent. New. Coins. Going into the supply chain? The remainder came from third party coin processors are recyclers as individuals by things they get back and there are machines where you can put your spare change and it will sort it and this recirculating process. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of coins that has broken down. A couple of weeks ago, meant issued a bulletin, which said, we ask that the American. Public start spending their coins, depositing them or exchanging them for currency at financial institutions or taking them to a coin reduction kiosk. The coin supply problem can be solved with each of us doing our part. This isn't the first time that there has been a coin shortage. There was one in the early nineteen sixties in the US.
"All right Andy Love your thoughts on this one. Our calendar for fiscal year eighteen nineteen was set before I was hired. It includes numerous clients activities that we cannot support financially not without our program suffering. I want to cancel the activities I, e expenses for the remainder of the year. Any advice on how to go about this when the board chair, who is very hands on created the activities in the first place and the related budget items. Okay. So it sounds like it sounds like there to challenge is here. The first one sounds like there's not a strategic plan that explains what you're supposed to be doing. You may have a mission and it sounds like the board chairs just got a run running with it without really involving staff. But not being really clear about what you're supposed to be doing what those core program items are So first piece make sure you get I mean this is a good time to especially with the transition. That's a really good time to start that strategic planning process over again because the the one that the prior d did there's a good chance that you're not gonNA YOU'RE GONNA agree with some of why you're the new and there's not the old Ed is not here anymore is because there needs to be a change in direction maybe so That would probably be the first thing I do. The second thing is you probably need to start clarifying the roles or the difference between the morning member, right the board member in the staff. Because if the board chair is really hands on, that's never ever a good. You never want to have those two words next to each other board chair and hands on those phrases are incompatible. Unless unless you have no staff in the board has to do everything but that's that's not the case that you're in here. So getting that transition man, there's so much. Work that needs to be done in the sector getting those baby organizations that are very bored directed not whole lot of staff and transitioning them away like I called Adolescence get through adolescence you're in good shape. To where the staff driving everything and the board is there to do with the board is supposed to do which is set the strategic direction. Make sure the organization is sticking staying true to its mission making sure that it's doing the right things for the community because the board then is like the proxy for everyone else it's their job to look at the. Organization from an external perspective. So if they're inside, they can't do that. They have to be outside and sometimes the board at one stage if an organization isn't the same board for the other stage right and you see that all the time sometimes you get aboard, that's really that startup, founding, board and that's all well and good, but they actually like to be. Getting their hands dirty and kind of doing some of the actual operations of a nonprofit because there isn't staff great. There's plenty of opportunities to do that out there but maybe they're not the ones for the next stage. So I know that that's a little premature for this. Perhaps, this board chair was just literally stepping in because they didn't have an executive director. And the and the board chair was trying to you know was well intentioned who knows but there seems like some room for resetting boundaries and expectations and I'm thinking for the strategic planning process because you don't want to just take this list that the board chair came up with that probably the rest of the board members nodded and just approved rate and. Do you want to take this list and say these all suck. Right all of your ideas activities suck, and here's why 'cause a resource depleting. But instead, how do you get the board disturbed thinking strategically about how they make these decisions so almost doing that that impacting resource analysis, how many resources? How much time money is this activity going to take and then laying out a grid compared to how much impact something like this would have on the organization and its mission, and once you start to map things it really becomes clear what quadrant. I wish, I. You know I'm sort of thinking of a visual where you actually end up with sort of a lot of dots on a chart that make you. Okay. These things that are low impact and have high resources need to just automatically be removed right and then the things that have the higher impact and lower resources great leverage tool. So why don't we keep those? So perhaps not all of these activities are going to be bad ones, but you've got to go through that process and you can't do it alone because you the new board will hate you.
Places of Vulnerability with Meredith Talusan
"How's it going? I just got haircut. Go on I. got my my quarantine haircut. Okay Okay Everything. Tell me tell me how this happened. I mean the way it happened was that I wanted a haircut and I got one. but long johns are close right now. Closeness how you did this? Yes I. Okay. So I have not had a haircut since I think September.

Betty Ford's Healing Legacy: A Conversation with Susan Ford Bales
"Today, we're joined by Susan Ford Welcome. Susan. You are aid author, photo journalist. The youngest of four children to President and Mrs Ford. We are appropriately here at the Betty Ford Center, where you're also on the board of trustees of the Hazel Betty. Ford Foundation. Your mother's legacy. was as a breast cancer survivor and advocate, and as a woman in recovery, and as an advocate for being a woman in recovery. How has the legacy of your mother? Affected your role here at the Betty, Ford? Center. Wow Her shoes were really big to fill your So when she stepped down from the board and I became chairman. I. Think it was harder than living in the White House actually because. We mother and I come from two different parts of recovery. She is a patient and the family member. So we have very different opinions of things than and what's important to us One of the things that she made me do, which was extremely painful with sit on every city every single committee. And participate on my witness finance. Finance. But I learned it. Sure. And so I feel like she did a great job of preparing me to be chairman. So it's it's just we come at it from a different angle in a different perspective family and children's services is extremely important to me because that's how I was affected by this disease. Did you come to the the role of being the chair here at Betty? Ford, did you come to that reluctantly? No because I had been on the board for cheese, probably fifteen years I'm it had just been a long process Mother was gracious and allowed me to raise my children before I came on the board because I was pregnant when the. Betty. Ford. Center open. So. I don't think I came on the board until my youngest was first grade or second grade, and so she gave me some time to get my children raised in at least in school because it required several days travel and all of that in childcare and all the complications that we go through to participate in something like that. Let's go back a little bit and talk about the history of the Betty, Ford Center there's a lot of people who think that when your mother found her own recovery in the late seventy s, she went to the Betty Ford Center. It wasn't even here now was, how did the Betty Ford Center come to be. Johnson from Eisenhower Medical Center decided that. They wanted to have a treatment and it had been in the plan at Eisenhower for some time, they wanted to have an alcoholic treatment center on the campus. and. So Leonard firestone mother's dear, friend was also on the board of Eisenhower. And so Johnson Leonard. Kinda. Tag. Team. Durham. and. She was really in a recovery about four years. But she agreed and I and I thought that was a very courageous step to be so early recovery. So she came to all of us children and she said. When I'm long gone. You're the ones that are going to have to live with the fact that your mother had A. Drug and alcohol treatment. Centre, named after you. How do you feel about that? Wow, and we also we don't care. I mean. It's what a great Lexi you know. She was one of the first to step out and and share her story So once we got past that it was just a matter of mother and Leonard Raising the money. To get this place started and of course. Way? Back, then in the early nineteen, Eighty S. The Hazel and foundation played a role also in the birthplace. Can you share just a little bit about that? Well, mother spent quite a bit a time when to Hazelton, because Hazelton had done it. So well, they were probably the leaders in the in the sense that they had been around the longest And it was successful There's lots of treatment centers that haven't been successful. Some other went back and spent probably close to a week there visiting with counselors visiting with a staff talking, how do you do this? What did you do? Right? What did you do on? Why? What makes Hazelton successful because we basically wanted to copy what they had done, but in a different location sure who would have ever imagined decades later. The two organizations would come together and I WANNA to come back to that in just a minute. But First Susan I want to address an issue that. Always bothers me and then set the the Betty Ford. Center is seen as a place for. The rich and famous for the exclusive for those who can pay out of pocket. But that's not at all what's happening here is no and less than one percent of the patients here are what we would think of as celebrities. Yes. We've had some celebrities, but so was Hazelton I mean. So as other places everybody needs treatment, it doesn't matter what you do that determines you need treatment. So, and they don't get treated any different than. My Mother didn't get treated any different Long Beach. The women, she shared a room with. So it's the same.
Twitter Hackers Arrested
"We have learned more about who's behind who is believed to be behind the twitter hack. And you know not some four. Powerful state-sponsored cybercrime gang, just A. we believe a seventeen year. Old Kid His name is all over the tech press. I heard you not wanting to say it on on, Mac. Breglio. So but I do have it in the show notes. To find it I mean. Yeah. You know I come from the School of journalism where you don't say the names of miners were accused of crimes, but apparently nobody else does that. So the AD the local Florida news channel. WFL talks Tim right away. They outed him as Graham Clark from Tampa Bay Florida. We. So they also. Suitably creepy, picture. Of Him. I know in fact in fact before. I reduced in size I. Actually had in the show notes. He looks a little bit like spock at so. got kind of a pointed ear. Is Little bit creepy. And, it's interesting too that his nick is Kirk. So Oh, maybe. Two Years Yeah. So Anyway the the the sad thing is this guy's life is now seriously sparked up. Yeah. He's been charged with felonies relating to computer communications and organized fraud for scamming hundreds of people using compromised account according to a press release from Hillsborough State Attorney. Andrew Warren's office. This guy Grab Clark. Now. Faces Thirty Felony Charges? So we have one count of organized fraud involving more than fifty thousand dollars, seventeen counts of communications, fraud of over three hundred dollars. One count of fraudulent use personal information. For an amount over one, hundred, thousand dollars or thirty or more victims. Ten counts of fraudulent use personal information and one count access to computer or electronic devices without authority and scheming to defraud. So in total thirty counts of felony charges, all of those felonies. So I mean I do feel like unfortunately, there's there's sort of a bit of. overreaction I, I, mean I get it that. This was not good and certainly that the law enforcement wants to send a message like don't do this even if you can Initially, the the initial announcement didn't indicate whether Clark had any partners in crime, but a few hours after the press conference announcement, the world learned that the US. DOJ had also filed charges against two other suspects believed to have helped Clark in this hack. The first of those was identified as Mason Shepherd who who's known as chair Juan nineteen years old living in Bognar Regis in the UK and the other is identified as Nima Fazackerley. Also known as Rolex twenty, two year, old residing in Orlando Florida. The US Attorney Anderson said there is a false belief within the criminal hacker community that attacks like the twitter hack can be perpetrated anonymously and without consequence today's charging announcement demonstrates thus I think an example has been meeting is being made. That, the elation of nefarious hacking into a secure environment for fun or profit will be short lived. Criminal conduct over the Internet may feel stealthy to the people who perpetrated, but there's nothing stealthy about it. In particular. He said, I want to say to would be offenders break the law Ed. We will find you please. So exactly the kind of thing hackers go. knows. That's GonNa, really scare me, I remember when I was a teenager. And in Fact Leo, did this did I? You know I was always a good kid. But oh, to be seventeen and have done Brazi network in front of me. Yeah. Yeah. Twitter early, fairly clever. Because, well, go ahead because it the way did it was kind of kind of interesting. Yeah. So for their part twitter disclosed a bit more about the nature of the attacks. They said that the that the phone based social engineering attack allowed the attackers to obtain the credentials of a limited set of employees, which then made it possible to gain access to twitter's internal. Internal Network and support tools although not all of those employees were who are initially targeted had permissions to use account management tools. The attackers you know apparently, just actually just Graham was able to use their credentials to then access twitter's internal systems and gain information about twitter's processes that expanded knowledge then enabled the attackers to target additional employees who did have access to twitter's privileged account support tools. Reuters also had reported something that I had not seen elsewhere, which was that as of Earlier. This year. More than a thousand twitter employees and contractors had access to twitter's in tools and could change user account settings in hand control over to others a thousand. And this was a key. To former twitter employees. Well as we know such widespread access makes it difficult if not impossible to defend against the sort of hacking that occurred.
Cybersecurity and the SMB
"But yet, you guys are geared towards helping small businesses from policy in ready perspective on cyber right. Absolutely. So I can tell you what we do I. Just WanNa make a comment on your diversity common because I'll. I'll make a a plug for diversity across genders races. The capabilities and skills are out there, but you have to work to find them So it's just a question. If you really believe in diversity than you have to build it from the ground up get people into the position to acquire the skills, and there's plenty of there's a diverse skill that's out there but you have to look forward. and. Not just be complacent and go to the usual suspects. So that's that's my plug on diversity it it. They are particularly in this space and it's important to for US particularly cybersecurity, which is about building things and creating solutions to actually get divers, thoughts and ideas in. Well, if I made injected diversity of opinion is so important because we. I I've been in the industry. You know roughly twenty some odd years and I feel like while we continue to innovate actually like the solving things is is the difficult part right and so every couple years ago we need a fresh perspective and what we have disabled people like this is not how it is going to happen. Yeah exactly. Exactly and so the the Cyber Readiness Institute in Two Thousand Sixteen I served as executive director of President Obama's independent bipartisan commission on Enhancing National Cyber Security, and it was a nine month commission as. We're finishing up the commission and the Vice Chair of the Commission Sam Palmisano, who's the retired CEO of IBM in I came together to talk through how do you carry this momentum forward so the CO chairs were all involved co chairs of CRI were all involved in the commission of Penny. pritzker served as US Secretary of Commerce at the time and she was oversight and then Microsoft participated on the commission Ivanka the CEO of MasterCard was a commissioner and the idea was to your earlier point that by convening senior executives to come together. And say small business cybersecurity is important. You create momentum for this purpose because small businesses themselves don't have the voice and don't have the resources for this and so if you take and convene large companies and ask them to share their best practices and resources to create free tools for small businesses, then you're truly helping businesses and you're also improving the security of global value chains. The point that Ajay Banga the CEO of MasterCard with all the time is you know we're only as strong as our weakest link and particularly for a company. Like MasterCard helping small businesses make sense but it's true of all companies are members include Exxon, Mobil, General Motors, city, those companies, all recognize the importance of cybersecurity for small businesses will, and I think it's interesting as cyber security We'll save matures and it's it's time as thing One of the things that I think we we keep coming back to insert recognizing pretty readily and it's happened a few times over the years where your smallest vendor, your most insignificant from but number of dollars you pay them vendor or partner. Tends to be one of your weakest. Of A cybersecurity perspective right. So if you think about the overuse example although I haven't heard it in a while of the h back company that you know. Is your is your H, back to provide a provider of choice for the six hundred, seventy, four locations you have right or or even or even the one like you've got a shop or something of live in an area that's got a lot of these small companies that are the warehousing and electrical companies and right. These are not like global companies but they've got somebody that maintains their grounds. They got somebody that does their payroll. They've got somebody that maintains the electrical and all that and I sort of wonder How much of the companies that? These companies rely on actually do. In terms of cybersecurity sometimes, they have such A. Wealth and abundance was an embarrassment of riches as the attorney in terms of how much data they have a about some of the world's largest companies. Blows my mind that they spent like. Maybe sometimes nothing on cybersecurity will holy cow possible. Well exactly and I think one of the things that you are calling attention to, which is so critical as that supply chains are not linear. There are parts of your supply chain that people don't think about it's the catering company. It's the HVAC company and there was a story in the. New York Times by Nicole for over a couple of years ago about an oil company in Texas that was firewalls, six ways to Sunday. But they were breached because the militia actors were paying attention to the it department and saw that at six o'clock at night typically, they would download the menu from the Chinese restaurant around the corner and. To in order to order, and so they put them out where on the Chinese restaurant. because. They see a lot easier to breach

The rules for being human and turned to me and they said, well, what are they and I said, well, you start with the body and they said Okay and then we're and all of a sudden it was as if spirit inside me was speaking and they came through under the paper and there they were plain and simple and I looked at them and I said.

President Trump telling reporters at the White House that he was formally removing the chair Skip Thompson and another member of the board, and he threatened to remove other board members if they continue to hire foreign labor. By the way, Thompson was appointed by President Trump as background. The TV A is a federally owned corporation created back in 1933 to provide flood control, electricity and economic development to the Tennessee Valley. That was a region it was hit especially hard during the Great Depression. It covers not only most of Tennessee but also parts of Alabama, Mississippi in Kentucky, as well. A small sections of Georgia, North Carolina and even parts of Virginia. The president is also calling on the CEO to be fired, claiming his $8 million your salary should be closer to $500,000. Informally removing the chairman of the board James Thompson and board member Richard Hold. If the TV a does not move swiftly to reverse their decision to re hire their workers, then more board members will be relieved. We have the absolute right to remove board members on the board makes a decision. I don't make that decision I saw there was an ad on television talking about the amount of money that the chairman makes, and it's a ridiculous amount of money, but we have the right Replace the board and the board is the one the only ones that get the right to then hire a new person. Furthermore, the board must immediately hired that new CEO who puts the interests of American workers. First, the current CEO Jeff Li, Ash is ridiculously overpaid. He earns $8 million a year. Did you know that he's the highest paid government official of any country anywhere in the world? I don't know that Gollum officially a government. It might be a public private. Maybe something is a long time ago, It was established Tennessee Valley, but he gets $8 million a year. So that was just a succession of deep swap things happening on DH. It's a disgrace, but he gets $8 million per year on DH. I can think of about almost 100% of the people I know would take that job and not a very hard job. Not a lot of debt, not a lot of anything, right public services just at those who take these jobs must be focused on the public. Good not on personal profit. He would have taken the job for millions and millions of dollars less. But nobody asked him to do that. Okay, would have gone for less. You could have had him for forming in 15,000,001 million, probably 500,000 year. The new CEO must be paid no more than $500,000 a year, which is still a significant amount more than the president of the United States makes That from the president on the Tennessee Valley Authority again, which was first organized back in 1933 at the start of the FDR

All right Andy, this comedy central show was animated in.
"So we did they ll the videos out yet a hope maybe by the end of the week I've been. Kind of lazy this last week. there's other things going on but. We did the prototype chair. And I was in a hot debate with myself on whether or not to add the embellishments to that chair or leave it as it is because it's I thought it looked kind of cool as it is, but I also wanted to do these other things to it. And I made the decision to leave it as is. So that video is complete, just got to shoot the ending in. Put that out and then I had started but not gotten very far on version number two I have this beautiful walnut slab and I'm not really in slab furniture. So I'm going to cut it up into pieces and I can resell it, and I can get the the legs in the seat out of it and I kind of home the design a little bit more so it doesn't look so. it looks cool but there's a there's a computer Drawing element to it that kind of boats may so I? I just kinda redrew it just a little bit. To get rid of it, give it some more I guess Pachuco feel to it and then. For the owls if you I mean nobody's seen this. So but the most of it is made up of of dowels and on the second one I use PVC pipe, it is such a cheap option and I was. For a little bit, Kinda wanted to do a stainless steel and get too expensive and maybe it's too cold and the alternative to that was conduit electrical conduit, which is also super cheap. You get like a ten foot thing for four bucks or whatever. and then settled for the PVC. 'cause it's going to have like a brilliant white up against this walnut Look good. So starting with that, and the problem with this one is a totally fail because the slab have has we're grain in it. and. Then you know whenever you cut into that, it could just twist and bandon turned into a single chip. So hopefully, it doesn't. So That's Canada now and Yeah I'm happy. I'm happy with the design I. I. I e fumbled a little bit or a Kinda. Where your bottom sits on there, I fix curbed a little bit and then the back is I move the curve down just a little bit just to make it a little bit more comfortable. It's still I don't think it's going to be a chair that you wanNA, sit in for hours. Because there's no cushion. It's just kind of forms to your body. But as a dining chair, I think it will work just fine. It's like a starbucks chapter like the starbucks chairs look really comfortable in about three or four minutes in you're like. They, do that on purpose so you don't stay in there. was going to say about furniture is one of the designed chairs I know my own personal experiences you never know if you've made the right decision that insecurity will sit with you forever might mice stools with you Built it will haunt you forever because every time I sit in my stool I made four of those those made full more for customers. I was very anxious to send out hoping that they would be happy with the result, but that's the way I am with anything that I ever make for customer I'm always anxious fulfilled their expectations. But by stools, I've made three of them made for them. Three of them are here at my house. One of them's entails design studio and I was sitting in last night and the whole time I'm sitting in my mind is just an autopilot maybe the foot rungs to love maybe the former inkster high, maybe the the the the but is too low maybe the butts to hide maybe why I grabbed on my fingers, it could have been thin. I can't stop it. So it's the same thing like when you're sitting in your run chair show you having very similar experience. You just can't stop let you can did I make the right decisions one hundred percent I might my personal thought was if I can sit in this chair without thinking about sitting in this chair than I know a I've done it right but I Without, judge without feeling without trying to figure out where to go next it's I. Don't know if I'll ever get to that point.

"And I mean, yes, it has has certain advantages that other places have access to waterways certain industries that are pretty much really kinda only located in your city. But there comes a point where the taxes get so high where the commutes get so long when you try to find a place that you just won't be able to function in the city business, regardless of what tax benefits the government gives you regardless of what they do it just won't work anymore. And that's that's it that will happen. I mean, it's happening. You see people moving out every day. So yeah. New York City got some trouble. I mean, I every day thinking about. Yeah. I mean every day I'm thinking about making the exit or the exodus from New York City. It wasn't for my job. I I'd probably be on my on a car down the Georgia right now. New Yorkers went to what's a Florida. And after they got tired of Florida, don't they go like North Carolina. They called halfbacks or something. I come half half way back. I have just going straight to the chase. And just going straight to North Carolina because I heard it's pretty nice. I haven't been there yet. But yeah, I mean me, and my wife, we really enjoyed savannah. So North Carolina North Carolina's like, you could save a lot on taxes, and you can use whatever bathroom you want. So you. Whatever makes life easier for you. But I did read the book yesterday and the beautiful thing about it is I always come from the school of thought that if you can use very fancy words, and very complicated, examples and stuff when you're writing a paper in college where you have to be smart as possible for the sake of it. But when you're just dealing with regular people, you gotta just cut to the chase and make things simpler understand. So that way anyone any reading level any education level can pick it up and say, oh, yeah. This makes sense. And I think your book definitely succeeds at that. I I'm really thinking about getting a copy and walking into Alex. Andrea Kashia Cortez's office. Awesome. I am really thinking about because here's here's the thing. Man. Like, you're from New York. So I personally blame me for the simply by association of where you live. But like every day like people, I know especially primarily conservatives like they talk about like like the anti Christ. And here's my thing. Like, I think conservative media created her like, I really do. I think that she's not nearly as evil and sinister and crazy as people give yourself credit for she said a lot of stupid shit. But I mean who hasn't. But I mean, the thing is she took out somebody with you know, she had ton of money ton of supporters. He was unpopular amongst the Democrats there. He was gone people were like, oh, he took out the ranking democrat. It's like if you really understand how things worked in that specific election, you'll understand he was always out. And then she ran and people like, oh, the Republican can take her out. It's like a Republican hasn't held that district since like, the frigging civil war. So now, you're talking about someone a very strong district in New York. York. And now, you have conservatives that are making her seem like, you know, the next Hitler, so to speak, and now that just makes progressives and even some left leaning independence, look at it. And be like, well, they hate her. So I must really like her and then these giver all this airtime, and then she dances an video. And it's like that's supposed to be scandalous, vows kind of sexy. But that's besides the point like, I don't. I don't understand how people are able to defend some of the policies that she does put out there. Because now she has this platform, and what's really sad is that because of the invention of conservative media and the amount of attention and hatred just time wasted thrown at her her green new deal, her seventy percent income tax is the policy discussion right now, like a freshman congressman she's only been there for like a week, and she's leading the conversation on tax reform like everything is focused on her now. Yeah. I mean, and that's that's the thing. She like she knows what she's doing..

I mean every episode is, but we're going to be jumping on lot of the government shutdown craziness that we've been covering on the show recently on Monday. Yeah. I think it was Monday. We covered the fake BuzzFeed article talking about the deaths at national parks that were not result of the government shutdown and just yesterday. What we did was we talked a little bit about say a worker sewer just deciding not to show up to work. So we'll cover a little bit of that. And so much more this week. We have our awesome guests friend of about three years now, Mr. Alex Mercedes, Alex what's going on, man. The show man how the bins been good. It's it's been real as real as life gets folks. Those vita don't know Alex is. He he's ran for so many public offices. I tend to lose track base currently the vice chair of the libertarian party and not to play identity politics. But he's probably the most influential let's libertarian and the country because of this, and that's right for like, no one who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio. Who really gives a crap about Marco Rubio? He hasn't done anything since he's walked in the Senate. So you could take his spot and Ted Cruz Canadian. So I guess you. I guess you're Alex, I guess those are the that's quite via role. I gotta play. But what I do. So each just recently came out with a book profits or generosity. What what why do you think? This was something you had to come out with now because with the title that it seems like, you know, everyone's jumping on the whole socialism train evil profits are what caused everything bad in the world to happen. What's what's going on? Why? Now, why this book? It's something that I think about for a while like the term profits generosity was something. I coined about a little bit over a year ago when the whole rent, this theft thing was come around, and I did this whole video, but how rent is not. And I thought about how profits generosity onto preneurs ship is philanthropy and kind of laboratory on that. But I felt that seeing that was such important point that I wanted to make sure I got it down. But also one of the kind of put it in a very condensed format that, you know, someone who made honestly be warm to libertarian ideas or fee market, ideas may not necessarily spend time reading eighty pages hundred pages two hundred I wanted something that was really conduct that you can read like them. It's really breaks all the ideas doesn't necessarily kind tell you what your conclusion should be. But explains it in a way that says this is what it is in a way that people can get it and then come to their own conclusions. I'm sorry. Explain to me, the whole Rentis theft thing.

"What's the worst management mistake? Oh, gosh. There's so many of them. I think the worst one is being abrupt with people using humor in a way, that's biting. You know, not really it's like funny only to me. And it's not really I probably don't mean it is that way not taking time to listen to people and just assuming back to my career. I remember once there was a job open, and I hadn't gotten it. And no one called me on it. And I finally marched into the HR person's room why did March because I was timid. I towed into the HR person's room. And I said I'd like to be considered for this job. And he said, oh, we thought about you. But you are young mother. And we thought it'd be too much travel. And I was so furious at him. But it was really furious that myself because I hadn't put my name in there. And I think that's a management lesson. I learned in that moment. And I know I've done it. Whereas soom things about people. I assume oh, they don't want that job or oh, they can't take that now because they really want accent. I never asked them. So that's probably the the hard. That's a hard thing to switching notes a little bit. I seem that you solve identified in your. Career was innovation that, obviously GE your bucks called imagine at Ford one thing that I want to talk to you about is you're on the board at Nike, and they obviously came out with a new ad gave her neck that. I think was very different than it's been controversial. How how have you thought about that strategy for them? Yeah. Well, I mean just to set the context a little bit. What Nike has done with it as a resurrected just do it? You know, it's a thirty year old campaign. And I think they felt they wanted to stand for something different for the company, and they wanted it to be re sort of retail athletes, stories and passion, and so they launched it. And you know, the Colin Kaepernick got a lot of attention. But it was also stories about Serena Williams, LeBron James Odell Beckham. I think he's what they're saying with it is, hey sports can be a force for good and for social change. And we want to carry those messages of important to our athletes. They also know their consumers really well, and they know their consume. Moore's expect brands to take a position in the world. I think we're in an age of brand courage and it requires brands to take a stand for something. And it means standing for something is may annoy some people, but your consumers are looking for leadership. They're looking for a point of view and the athletes were avoids to do it. But there were many stories in the Nike campaign that got the most attention when I think about you being on the board at Nike, and the fact that there aren't a lot of women on corporate boards. It's it's a three Nike now. Yeah. And the fact that you were the first female vice chair it at G, which you said was kind of like what you've been there for a while. But it's not just that like the odds are not hugely beneficial to women in these positions has that been something you've thought it all is it is it something that goes into how you mentor. Yeah. It's something to think about all the time. I actually after twenty seven year career, I'm actually frustrated that we haven't made more progress. I see my daughter's in the workforce. Now. And I feel like I love seeing founders like like you guys. I mean, it gives me so much encouragement at the same time. I know how hard it is for people. They're still not getting the raises. They're still not getting promoted. I I saw myself the the scrutiny that that women women of color got that men of color got. And it annoys me to no end it really frustrates me..

"And Furthermore, you look like you're twelve why would anyone ever higher twelve year old to cover the news? So basically beat it get lost. You have no shot. And he just ranted at me. And it was at that moment. I was like petrified. I'm sure I didn't say anything. I was just too shocked, but I hung up the phone, and I don't know if it was immediately. But soon thereafter is like, well, wait a minute. This guy doesn't know me. He doesn't know what I made of. And it kinda brought out resiliency in me, and frankly, maybe a resilient sated, no hack. I called him every day. And I'm I'm especially that I was really shy person. But there was just something like you. I wanna have a hearing. I want you to acknowledge I exist. So one of the things that I'm fascinated by is you just said, you're shy person. And you've talked a lot about being an introverted leader. And that's been a big inspiration to Danielle. And I because our team never believes this, but we're actually both really shy people. And I think the heart one of the hardest things in doing our jobs is. Being kind of putting yourself out there to constantly meet new people to be the face of your brand or be the leader that that rallies people. And what I'm asking to by as you know, we always say we were producers for reason like it was hard for us. We didn't want to be on camera. But like you actually wanted you were trying to get a reporter job. So how do you reconcile the shyness in you to kind of aggressively pursuing role? It's a great question. I had no idea that I'd actually have to perform do that in front of the camera. Honestly back then I think I thought there were only two jobs in television, you either in front of the camera or the camera person. I had no idea until I ended up getting to NBC seeing just the range of things. So I don't think I thought that far ahead to be honest. You are no longer the the novice wannabe reporter it worked out for you little bit so Lakas through how you when you got your first leadership position when you got to NBC like how did that happen? Yeah. Well, I my first leadership position came when I actually I left NBC because I had a really. Jerk for a boss, and he was what I call a classic gatekeeper. And after trying a lot of different things to say can we work differently? Basically, it was like what are you know? And I left and went to C N N Turner. That was my first leadership job where I got to oversee a team. I think there were eight of us, and I didn't know what I was doing. It was you know, it was daunting that was my first leadership job. And there was no training manual. I none of the media companies. I work for frankly, in retrospect, did anything really to train you as a manager of people. You just kinda had to figure it out. I think that's so interesting. Your path is you've done you've had so many different roles who started off as like wanting to be a reporter than you went into comes role than obviously g into marketing marketing, and then as vice chair, I actually don't really know what that means. Let's start what is vice chair yet? Well, I it it g vice show was as much a recognition of a career path every vice chair has a different portfolio. Mine was business innovation which meant I was. I was there to lead. New new new businesses so businesses either we invested in seeded or turned around so looking for new revenue from new sources and marketing was my path to get there. So from communications really became promotion, especially in the news world, you're promoting people to watch your news. And from there got into advertising and marketing, and that that became a path to innovation it may sound strange because most people think of marketing is just what you do at the end. It's the ad. It's the trade show when in fact for us the opportunity was to bring marketing to the beginning. It was about the insights in the market. Where's the market going? So became a trend job. It became a innovation job pretty quickly. Because hey, we have existing things. We can just target them to new customers. We can drive revenue anew way. So it was pretty it. Sounds like it would be weird..

"Why you should care if someone new joins the Federal Reserve Board? I'm David Brancaccio in New York. I like to point out that the policy decision, the single policy decision that affects every woman man and child in America is when the fed changes the cost of borrowing by fiddling with interest rates. So it's relevant. I think to all of us when the Federal Reserve gets not just a new board member, but a new vice chair. Richard Clarita is was confirmed by the Senate yesterday he's an academic unlike fed chair. Jerome Powell marketplace's, Nancy. Marshall. Genzer has more Richard Clarita is managing director at depan firm pimco. He's also an economics professor at Columbia University. Clarita was an assistant Treasury Secretary during the administration of George W Bush. He's researched monetary policy, interest rates and exchange rates as fed vice chair. He'll be second in command to fed chair. Jerome Powell who has extensive experience in the financial markets, but not academe like pow Clarita is expected to support. It more interest rate hikes, which President Trump has said. He's not thrilled with chirp. Powell has said repeatedly that the fed makes interest rate decisions based on what's right for the economy, not politics, but President Trump will leave his Mark on the fed board. He'll appoint six out of seven members in his first term. Three of his nominees have been confirmed. Two more are waiting, and there's still one more open seat. Marketplace's, Nancy, Marshall genzer on the fed beat out of our Washington bureau. Now, let's do the gross domestic product. Yeah, there's news. The US economy grew at a four point, two percent annualized growth rates spring into summer. That's a slight upward revision of what was already a strong quarter. David, Kelly is chief global strategist at j. p. Morgan funds. He says, fine, but has his sights firmly on the current quarter is great to see a quarter of four point, two percent growth. I mean, basically the American economy's a tortoise. Now you had, you know, got this burst of sugar and did a bit of sprinting in the second quarter. We've got this four point, two percent growth, but when we look at what's going on in the third quarter, you know, housing starts is so down. Auto sales basically stole dad. So I think rose going to return to about two percent for the third quarter. So you know a little bit of a sprint out of the economy here, but I don't think it's gonna last since you stay. So essentially we should perhaps for guard the spring into summer quarter second quarter as kind of a fluke. Yes, I think so. I mean, we had some very weird trade numbers which which contributed a lot to this. Now we actually think the trades going to be a drag on the economy going forward. As as our imports go up more than our exports. So I think the economy is so down again, but that's okay. You know, this is an old expansion two. We're in its tenth year, so I really don't want the economy to run to house right now. If it did, we'd have more problems. All right. And we're in that second half David Kelly at j.p Morgan funds.
