The inventor of the cellphone says wireless spectrum auctions are flawed
"You talk a little bit about the carriers attitude and you talked about spectrum and it's good timing sense. The sec's in the middle of wrapping up another option right now especially action and as you noted in the book spectrum. It's not exactly the sexiest topic. It's not a topic that that people really care about that much until their their phone calls. Drop but i'm curious to get because i am that kind of wonky spectrum nerd. I'm curious to get your thoughts on spectrum. And so they add to that really the company the industry even regulators all sort of stress. That spectrum is this Limited resource it's limited resources. That's why we that's why we can't connect everyone. There are spectrum We need more spectrum always spectrum that has been so the mantra of industry and really In this whole universe The expect for longtime curious to get your thoughts on that because you do have this law. Cooper's law law spectrum scarcity about the ability to be able to to make more use of spectrum over time similar to moore's law in the chip world and so i'd like to perspective on that and this notion that that these carries just bets the answer to all. The problems is getting more game your hands on more spectrum. That is a almost a fraud. 'cause think about it that we've been radio was invented or as commercialized around. Nineteen hundred hundred twenty years ago of amount of information that you could travel to move over radio channel as increased by trillions of times. Getting spectrum was scarce well Their jobs that technology is always stayed ahead of the man anytime. Anybody came up with a an application radio somebody out how to have multiple people talking on the radio channels and they're always more radio channels than than people want would want to have shame television so we addenda television. They set up so many tv channels. That both of our ended up on us so we have the capacity of the spectrum. The amount of information you can transfer to the spectrum as always need ahead of the demand the exact opposite of scarcity they're plentiful spectrum when the other hand we have people. That's one of the reasons that i don't think that auctions every day somebody that spate of billion dollars budget radio channels would not appreciate having. Clinical spectrum prefer to do is to have the spectrum. Re- sharply wrong. I the whole concept of auctions is wrong spectra want to go to those that can provide the services to take care of you than needs. That's the reason. The only reason why people should be assigned spectrum the idea of of exclusivity doesn't make any sense and getting back to what you call covers live. Really what i call the law spectrum capacity it says that every two and a half years for the past twenty years we have doubled the size of the spectrum. Type that we could put twice as much information through this. You do that for one. Hundred twenty years guests went that's town trillion times the capacity and we used all the technological tools yet. We can predict that we can do this dollar fifty or sixty years so there's no reason to have a scarcity of spectrum there is enough spectrum. You should be able to do all of the things that we do do all these things. We've been talking about it in our conversation. L. education But most of all collaboration another topic. I wanna hit his five. Jaded vijay a favorite topic of mine. And i know you're in the working groups on that topics just sort of generally love to get your thoughts on its promise and what it brings to set to this world that say older technologies could not or is it really just sort of you know a an incremental change to the overall philosophy of where mobile's going From where you lived outgrow roger. You're exactly right. Five g is incremental change. It has improvements in a number a number of areas. Emily advantages of five. G will serve applications like factories robotics things of that nature if the infrastructure for the things of five g will support as yet to be constructed. We don't have a ton of cars. We don't have factories abuse the cellular systems. So the provinces vibe judy and high in a really is is lau white. We're going to have enormous bandwidth gigabits per second it. We're going to eliminate latency it. We are going to have slicing while i ask you. Roger well was the last time you had a latency problem with your cell phone. Your niece slicing turns out the the the focus of five gene is the internet of things at my position is yes. I think that we ought to be working on that. We ought to build that capability so that we could do these things in the future but we haven't finished the our people yet job applications on the internet of things and then saying what people want is super high speeds low latency and Slicing those guys things. That's almost fraudulent that don't you think we don't diesel asleep What we need are better coverage or close.
NRDC's Dr. Vijay Limaye Discusses Measuring the Health-Related Costs of the Climate Crisis
"To the healthcare policy. Podcast i'm the host. David intra cosso with me today to discuss the climate crisis related health. Costs is dr. vj lemay climate and health scientists at the national resources. Defense council center. Dr lemay welcome to the program. Thank you dr maze by is of course posted on the podcast website on background. Twenty twenty set another global warming record this past year tight twenty sixteen as the hottest record year and strikingly warmer than twenty nineteen. For example average temperatures in some parts of the arctic last year were more than six degrees celsius higher than the twenty one thousand nine hundred eighty one to two thousand ten baseline average per no at twenty twenty seven. Us record with twenty two one billion dollar plus climate disasters. The previous record was sixteen and twenty seventeen toiling in some ninety. Five billion dollars in damages are more than double the forty one year average of forty five billion seventy events were linked to hurricanes and tropical storms concerning wildfires california suffered over ten million acres burned more than double the previous record set in twenty eighteen at four million acres adverse health effects caused by climate crisis. Events are on bounce well known for example in two thousand sixteen. The government published the impacts of climate change on human health in the us. And i recently cited lance and twenty twenty countdown on health report that concluded in part quote the world has already warned by one point. Two degrees celsius resulting in profound immediate and worsening health effects close quote nevertheless response. By thorough policymakers. Along with the health care industry remains far beyond inadequate. The best the recent congress recently concluded congress can do as produce a five hundred fifty page climate crisis report that drew no connection between the climate crisis and related effects. Imposed on medicare medicaid beneficiaries. Do likely in part to the fact. That neither med pack or mac. Pack independent gresham commissions given broad authority to address issues affecting. These programs has never addressed much less mentioned the climate crisis with me again to discuss climate crisis related. Health costs is the national resource. Defense counsels dr. vj lemay so at that As background vj. Let me begin by asking. If you can briefly describe the nrdc signed centers work shirt and. Thank you david for the invitation to speak with you and your listeners. I work at nbc. The natural resources defense council we are a profit organization working really to stay guard the earth. it's people plants animals and the natural systems on which we all rely. We combine the power of more than three million at rdc members across the country with the expertise of about seven hundred staffers that scientists like me but also lawyers policy advocates who are working together to protect clean air clean water and the natural systems on which we all depend so i work in the science center at entity see and science release the foundation of our work to protect people in the environment. We worked to understand environmental and human health problems working in interdisciplinary spaces in some of the work that we'll talk about today. In terms of connecting the dots between climate change in house is really the focus of my work. And i just have to say you know this period unprecedented on the scientific enterprise. It's more important than ever that we recognize the value that science brings to society and helping us to confront respond to some of these. Really urgent threats thank you. I appreciate that last point As we are well aware. Let me go to you recently. Published an article To your credit in health affairs Last month last month december issue was a theme issue on the climate crisis. I should say a health affairs polishes. Nineteen eighty-three had never previously addressed. Or excuse me. Nineteen one had never previously addressed this subject So again a -gratulations. Your article with your colleagues was titled estimating the cost of action and the economic benefits of addressing. The health harms of climate. Change But i wanna ask you specifically about that because you wrote in this essay quote unquote. There is currently a knowledge gap that must be addressed for more complete understanding of climate change related exposure response relationship. So explain to me what this knowledge gap is. Sure you know in your setup remarks. You mentioned the huge toll that climate and weather disasters inflicted on the united states last year. About ninety five billion dollars by the federal governments fresh estimate and well that's a staggering number as a health scientist. I'm an epidemiologist. I look at that figure and i wonder what's not included and the truth is that when our federal government is tracking the damage the climate change in reports like the billion dollar disaster list. It's actually not accounting for tremendous profound and sometimes irreversible damage to human house so there is a huge missing component. We think about the continuing and mounting costs of inaction on the climate crisis

"E in Boston yesterday and once again was feeling extremely honest Vibes, although the following statement is a lot less surprising than his frank admission that the team had quote sold out for Super Bowls in recent years. This time, he spoke about his decision to resign as H C of the Vijay without ever coaching a game. Woz know most defining, but you know, one of those one of the great moments of my career and That combined with you know, Robert, give me an opportunity to come here. You could have asked for anything more. So it's just that I was gonna get situation for May and I didn't want to be part of it so A loving buyer cell. Bill Belichick would have ever coached in a Super Bowl as the H C of the Vijay No. So ballistics genius is not just understanding the importance of culture that he can create, but the restrictions it would have certainly placed on his own ability to be successful. An egomaniac things. You can change anything. A wise man understands that he can't and adjust accordingly. And Bill Bella Jack, at least back in the day, very various suit at his own career and get the hell out of the Jets. So Jerry Jones is always feeling honest. And that was no different. Yesterday's appearance on Sean and R. J. I want 253 the fan in Dallas, he faced a critical question. Is it crazy to consider drafting a quarterback with the high draft pick that looks to be coming to the Cowboys? Yes, Maybe it's crazy to bring the idea Man tree. Yes. Playing the game does, but it's not the thing to be talking about it all. No, dad. He's our quarterback. Of course, Doc Prescott remains injured and unsigned in the long term. Buy yourself a cowboy should be considering drafting a quarterback in April. Off course, buddy slugged Situational. Consideration is, by definition, the idea of thinking something through logically and on open mindedly and their refusal to do that for a Q B, who is hurt, and it's awful and he was under contract. And that is as much the Cowboys fault is it his decks? Jerry's getting orders. He's getting mad. These guys every time we play a clip. How could you ask me that seriously Legitimate question. That's just move on. You dare to ask me if we're gonna win on Sunday? Ridiculous. I mean, I don't know, man. Yeah, considerate. Look into us leaked that you're open to it. Leverage the guy. Do your job and you're also the guy who won't sign his quarterback. So like you're kind of inviting this conversation on Marquez Valdas Scant. Ling joined Jim Rome yesterday and had the highest praise for his quarterback Aaron Rodgers. When you've got a quarterback like an arrives, you can't react a better signal. Call it better boat or he's the best in the NFL. He's been like that for a very long time. So he makes it pretty easy when you have your job and get opening custom ball. Most of the M V P buzz so far this season is revolve around Russell Wilson, who was still the betting favorite. A plus 1 25, followed by Patch Mahomes. That plus 2 20 by Roger's lurks in the shadows of the third best odds. Plus, 400 is quietly in the midst of one of the best seasons of his entire career. Buyer, Saul Rogers. That plus 400 is a smart MVP bet right now. Wow. He's 4 to +14 to one like it. Someday, I might get some money on by his undoubtedly Undoubtedly. The smart choice because the thing about I think the homes is probably gonna win, But you could see the chief's just deciding to run the football a bunch week after week after week and no home stats being a little bit suppressed, and voters looking at the stats, Trust me, it happens. A lot of Roger's head As many touchdowns. Yes, I love I love the Roger. I actually think there's already a Jordan slash LeBron factor with no homes, or there's going to be an assumption he's going to win many, so I think that actually will help. Roger's a little bit will help Wilson. I think that the press wanted. I think I think that's the that's the problem. I think that's because A Rod's near the end of his career, the right or at least, presumably, he. Certainly he's certainly closer to the end in the beginning. Or no one is that's a lot of value. That's a lot of value. What I thought too Okay now to the good part, Steve Cohen was introduced as the Mets owner to outright jubilation in New York City. Yesterday, he assured fans that the Mets will now operate like a big market teams and made his goal very clear, if not, maybe a little too clear if I don't win a world Siri's on next..

"Businesses guys hurts those poor poor helpless defenseless businesses and each make a profit. Oh, we have to think of them what about the people that are losing their houses right now I, wonder how they feel about that philosophy. So I just want to put some things into perspective for you if you're not aware of the current administration's stance on the planet. that. They did for the environment while in office I'm not GonNa go through all of it don't worry but there are over a hundred rollbacks they have done while in office so far. Just a few that stand out to me in a twenty. the Bureau of Land Management rescinded. Twenty fifteen tightening rule on fracking on federal and Indian lands. July twenty eighteen the EPA eased rules on the storage of Coal Ash, which contains contaminants like mercury all that's great. August twenty nineteen, the trump administration weakened in dangerous species act regulations which weakened habitat. Production September Twenty nineteen the EPA and the US. Army formally repealed the waters of the United States role in order to ease restrictions on pollutants near bodies of water itself super idea. Found like that won't backfire at all November twenty nineteen We told the Paris climate agreement to fuck off. So that happened in the as the pandemic started to take hold and March, the trump administration was finalizing their pet project called the safer affordable fuel, efficient vehicles rule or otherwise known as safe. Let me tell you about this one, the national, highway traffic, safety administration and the Environmental Protection Agency amended certain existing corporate average fuel economy and greenhouse gas emission standards for cars. And these new standards that they want are supposed to be a little bit more lenient. You know better for the businesses ride gives a shit about emissions and it is projected to add emissions equal to an extra five million cars on the road by two, thousand, twenty five so and it doesn't seem like it is safe at all an April the EPA weakened its mercury regulations from power plants. Also, they just don't really give a shit about mercury apparently, and in June there were more clean Water Act Shenanigans and the EPA chief is already bragging about the other environmental rollbacks the trump administration has planned for us. If they get reelected and they are still in the driver's seat for the remainder of this apocalypse. So why am I bringing this up because you need to go climate change is real. We are seeing it with these fires receiving it with the pandemic. This administration wants to put prosperity over the harsh reality that we are facing a certain generation doesn't care where the world will be in ten years because they won't be here anonymous ATIEMO. New to that generation. If. The environment isn't one of the top. If not the top concern when you enter that voting booths, then you are living in an alternate reality I'm talking all my Catholic one issue voters and you know to a rebuttal I will say. About this. Tiny minute you have to save the planet before you save the unborn because. The planet, there's no place for. That unborn person to. Go. So just think about that.

We need you please vote were sorry about making fun of you about tide pods just really counting on your right now. Okay. Anyway. This week's episode I met another interesting and enlightening person through the networking website lunch club shutouts, lunch club go to lunch club dot a I if you want to sign up network with people pretty. It's a good way to stay connected while we are all still socially distant. Patta salty the founder of stardust insights. Was who I have on this show today he does this wonderful service. His business model is really interesting to me. He helps brands promote their products and services through socially conscious action and outreach the encouraged. He encourages charitable behavior to be a part of their mission, and this is a great shift in marketing philosophy. I think this is where we are headed in a post pandemic. Are More likely to participate with brands that contribute to society in a positive way it's true. Visual wants to help brands achieve these goals and another interesting and amazing thing about him is he has a PhD in cultural anthropology and based a majority of his studies on the art of stand up comedy Interesting. And we had a great conversation. So when we first met through lunch club and I was like man I wish it was recording this. That's what podcasters think when they're talk to and it's a really good conversation like I wish there was a microphone here. So I could use this as content, but I didn't have a microphone that time. So I invited him to be a guest on the show this time and it was great find out more about Vanessa Ellen his linked in profile, and that will be in the show notes.

I feel bad for people that have turned twenty one during that. In. People people like to party hard and we. WanNa get drunk at all that stuff. But I think everyone's really adapting quite the way they have to instead it's just it's just what they have to do rather than you know something that they can really off. Hopefully be optimistic about it but. I think at this point, we're all just like this is this is what twenty twenty is. This is what we're dealing with and there's less of A. I'm definitely feeling less of a panicked which makes me uneasy because people should be still concerned about the pandemic. You know I mean, what are some things you know?

T. and we'd love to hear from you now we're not oblivious to what's going on in Chicago and across the nation the reason that Nick can't come in of course is it pretty obvious he can't get there and certainly not safely so while I'm fifteen hundred nautical miles away and it was no problem trundling over the microphone also thanks to broadband no trouble watching the WGN TV nine coverage and several other stations across the country and what I can say right now is it appears that times are tense but I'm not seeing anything that is a flash point at the moment and obviously Kevin version from from CBS and Entertainment Tonight you're aware as well and I understand that if you suddenly have to go or something but I hope not but I assume that that's pretty much the the case everywhere that you're looking tension but no flash points at the moment there's a couple are once right now Santa Monica they've been looting the third street promenade I'd I have seen so a lot of gas and some rubber bullets being used by but nothing too bad mostly shoe stores seem to be getting robbed a lot really and it seems to be a lot in a lot in the Fairfax district they got the supreme store and be you know what next door it's called flight club and all of the adidas stores and some apple stores or in west Hollywood on Melrose I got Melrose mac ather just smashing the windows and check it out stop and filling up garbage bags and away they go yeah he's obviously are opportunists immediately goes without saying that this is these are people who are capitalizing on what's going on and and sadly in many ways cheapening it which you which I hate to hear all the way around we've got your lambda who is in Aurora and I'm glad to glad it will get somebody on from from Chicago I think that John is talking to a right now but you'll land a welcome to WGN radio how are you thank you so tell actually and it quickly and technologically but emotionally I end correct because this is what you look at that yeah me yes I agree right now how close is it to where you are it won't be on here practically every I'm lucky in that exactly where I am we haven't passed our hat we had a protest in the next town over that went well we haven't had that meeting the writing that's far good good so you're so you're safe I don't feel safe and I don't blame right I don't know what all well I don't feel that you know all right well I I more than understand that no you don't feel it at all but it at the moment you're not you're not being encroached upon but right at a time like this and tensions are high that's gotta have you continually literally on the on the edge of your seat at every moment because you don't know what the next next minutes gonna bring but obviously you've been you've been keeping a close listen to media and I could be wrong and I'd really love it if you will will fill me in on your view point but it seems to me as I've been saying that at the moment there's a lot of tension but in the Chicago area no real flash points where I say all man this is gonna we rocked we get pretty close I say the more they called the National Guard and Ashley and they're not coming into play they're coming in to keep the order one way or another buy it the usual way and one people are going to yes hi if you think that will ever be out or turn around hi and that's going to be the report I will look back because we knew we had left people to die more people are going to get yes I did and of course it goes for that hello of course it'll escalate escalate absolutely it it would now from what I can tell so far the National Guard has been restrained D. are you expecting or even of course sorry I know you don't a crystal ball but are you expecting that this is going to turn to confrontations with the National Guard tonight absolutely really now I could be wrong because my crystal ball you working but it just on a gut level absolutely I hope you I hope you are wrong but that's what that's what I say from what what I see I could see the tension and I could see it see it going either way but let me just for a moment to make you queen of Chicago il and and say okay we're making a land in charge obviously you're you're very unsettled with bringing the National Guard and you know the amount of violence looting rioting what have you that's there what would you do to turn this around without guard or that type of presence okay well shout out to the mayor she is where are very bad although the words of seventeen and then dedicating gone anywhere well let's bring her new she took the spotlight it.

"It and the layers of management can only get in the way. Because it's kind of like telephone like a person. Doing it tells the person above what the information is and so on and so for the by the time is a CMO year it. I don't really understand it. And if I'm making judgments on what I heard in that last telephone call. I've made a huge mistake and so the way that I deal with it and I deal with partially because again it's just how I've approached leadership since Since we started doing this many years ago and it's worked for me is if I can find a way to put people in roles that are right for them that inspire them that they know they can do with stretch and then I give them the full support. I can to make them feel like. They're doing what they need to do. And champion them then. We ended up with sort of an inverted organizational struck where the person who has the most knowledge of what is being done. Is the person deciding what is being done and wet the role of the senior managers and the leaders myself becomes much more about understanding if the things that we are working on collectively are taking us down the path that we need to go so. I don't like to get myself involved in media buying or in paid search decisions or in the way that we optimize our our email campaign or any of the other litany of things that achieve marketers responsible for. Because if I were doing those things then I'm not allowing people who are best at it and who know the most about it to be applying themselves against that specific piece of work so I think that's really important heart to do as organizations have gotten larger and larger? But I think it's really important to great point and I don't hear many people use servant leadership but it actually. It's the thing I describe my own leadership style with as well so it's nice to hear somebody else that's out there using it because it it can be hugely empowering to the right individuals in it is to your point out. He said early on getting the right people in the right roles. It's not the cool leadership idea like definitely on cooled leadership idea but I think it's it's a great one. Yeah no it's definitely like I'd Old School but not too old school fifties. Maybe like seventies eighties. Will what advice would you give your younger self? If you're starting all over I think that when I was first came to the states and I started working. I think I always felt like I'm not ready for that. I've got to wait on something because I'm not ready. That's for people who have had more experience or whatever it may be and then recently I've been having the experience of the opposite side of saying well. That's too late for me I. I'm past that and I realized and this is the advice give by younger cells. Is the moment. Do Anything is the moment in front of you and you're never too late and you're never too are so that's what I would really say. That sounds like something a monk would say for Iota If that's great I like I really liked that advice. Because if you're thinking about it now is the time right. Now is indeed the time. This is kind of a silly question but I like sometimes where this goes with. People is curious if there's been impactful purchase of one hundred dollars or less in the last say six to twelve months that you'd like to share. Yeah this is again i. I'm not betting my answers on the basis of what sounds good but what is. That's that's what I want practical. Yeah I bought a Clay Baker. And it's changed my bread baking completely if you bake bread without a Klay Baker. You are missing out. What kind of bread do you bake and we just curious? You name the breakout. You know Y tweet Essentially yeah bread loaf of bread. Well not lows. Yeah I love bread. Yeah round or aura or overloads but when you put it in a clay baker and you shut it inside the Klay Baker. What ends up happening. Is that the bread. Actually Steen's inside and you get this crust and so anytime you're buying bread at a like a like a real bread maker. You know you see that you like how do you do that? Well they're putting it in a in something coolant Klay Baker and you can get that get that experienced by just using it yourself. Wow Okay you recommend a specific Klay Baker that you have. I think anyone would work. I have a rumor tossed but I think anyone would work rumor. Toss okay. I'm Jay because I love crusty bread. I mean to your point lake in the world. Is that like more sure. And she rest for sure. Get a play Baker. I mean you could also put it in any kind of pot but trust me on the climate I like it will To more marketing questions for you know wrap up but Just curious marketers tend to be students of the business things that are going on around them and so a love note there's any brands or companies or causes that you think others should be taking notice of or that you follow your. I had a thought on this but I've really changed my mind like right now. Everything for me is coming to the lens off. What does the future look like in a post Cova World? And that's just so that so meaningful to me that. I just have a hard time sort of sort of stepping back from that. A little bit. But that's that's what I'm sort of. I'm starting to look at not only the companies that have to imagine what it is to be retail business to re imagine what it is to be To have an office and how that works with a remote working how what it what it means to have community space and how that works in communities. I think all of those things are just so ripe for I am going to change and I just. I'm just really curious about it and I don't have any answers for people on this one. I just I just know it's something that I deeply interested in. It is interesting because I feel like as consumers will will likely I'm hopeful that this isn't going to last indefinitely was not on would collectively everyone listening but I hope I think if that's the case I think consumers will probably habituate back to the original habits but I do. I'm very interested in how this changes how we do work. Because I've I've noticed my colleagues as well adapting to work from home and there's definitely a lot of advantages. I mean there's a lot of disadvantages but there's a lot of advantages that people didn't realize I think until now for sure so we to have teams in our office and I never used it because I was always in the office and I didn't know what it was and now I've been using it at that and zoom really for the last month month and a half and I'm amazed how effective it is because with people they can. We can put up a little deck or put up a little design. Work that we're doing and that just edited on the fly. I'm finding it incredibly effective for a lot of things that would be as effective. You're in a room together. Which is surprising. But yeah you're right. I think there's definitely worked changed. That could happen and at least a on. I missed thinking that this is probably you know whenever we are are sort of out and about is still gonna be different for eighteen months so that differences where I think opportunity will be created for anyone a company. Our brand that finds a way to beat into it. Oh for sure for sure. And I'm sure folks like your like your own business. Has Locations has a interaction with people retailers hospitality establishments? It's going to be a Right now it's it's survival mode in many respects especially in the hospitality rural. Then it's GonNa be a communication challenge of how do communicate that it's safe to inhabit our hotels again and what are the cleaning processes that were putting in place and then at what point do we actually come back to sports. Arenas and that's a whole nother transition. What do you think is gonNA show replaced handshaking? What's the new Hachik? I think it's the elbow bump but I I don't know I will see dirty Americans. We have to touch each other like if we were smart. You know adapt eastern practices of bowing or something but no no. Americans are thirty for that drink. I say that with love as an American but I to do so. I have to say love as well. I think it'll be be some bump. I don't know what that'll be. Yeah we'll Last question for you. I was just curious if you have a take on and were you see as the largest opportunity or or largest threat ahead of us I mean. Obviously we spoke about covert but maybe maybe something in general related to marketing. I think marketing is a function in organizations that can be incredibly important or it can be really passe or gone by the wayside and what. I mean by. That is the import of marketing to me. And and what? I think is the biggest threat slash opportunity to marketing. Marketers is playing a material rule. In what is it that the business creates as a value proposition for clients. Whether it's the experience whether it's the product structure whether the pricing whatever it may be that you're serving the customer because the best marketing is gonNA come from the efficacy of that product or that service that experience and and the more that marketing sort of boxes itself into a space. That says whatever it is. I'll find a way to talk about it and get it to the right target audience at the right time. I think we really miss an opportunity to really imagine the real value and leverage that a marketing organization could bring him. So that's what I would say I would want all is district push on and that requires a level of marketing disciplined that connects marketing activities to business activities and leadership. That is more about enterprise leadership and less about organizational leadership. The new that was well said and I just wanted to say thank you for coming on the show. It's been fantastic Allen.

"It what I really would lead into jumps of. What block has it's just got enormous impact that it has on so many clients and we we have twenty one million clients at big and we deal with them on something that is probably the most important financial moment for many of their lives. Every year we funds can be a material moment for clients. So you already have this very very significant relationship with a lot of people. And you have an arcade we we're the third dodgers issue of debit cards. We actually provide debit cards class as a way to get their money as well as just as a card so we have a fair number of financial product associated with the tax event. So we already sort of play a material client's life but the potential for us in terms of what we can do and what clients really need is just so huge. And that's what I really sort of leaned into when I saw the opportunity and team is When when we spoke once earlier I mentioned the most important thing that I looked at when I when I join a company's not just you know who I worked for but also who I work with and and the relationships I'll have with my colleagues are far more important than the relationship with my seat. You know it's great point and met Jeff too far too long ago last year. I guess it was and he. He made similar comments that he is not the CMO anymore. You are so I think he he respects yet. Yeah no no I think it's It's a nice place to be frankly to have have somebody in the CEO. Position that understands marketing has understands the ability of it but also maybe the nuances right that you know not everything can be mapped out on for one in terms of impact in certain cases but notes its importance and has sat in the seat. That that's gotta be a enviable role for marketer. These days a lot of historically I guess you know we haven't seen that many CEOS that have come from the marketing track Typically Finance ups true. But I would say at least dispense. I worked for a few. Ceo's the overwhelming thing that connects all of them is that they get it with a CEO. Who has said? Oh I don't I don't get like I don't have to stand you. Hear the sort of standard to high level things of Oh you know you're wasting fifty percent you just don't know what fifty percent you know you hear things like that but that's more just these general biases that there are things that we don't understand their those biases are based in some truth. We really don't understand everything in terms of how we're spending our money but in terms of the importance of marketers role in an organization to drive change to create the brand to nurture the brand both internally and externally the ability to see the problem from Customer Lens and be that person at the at the C. suite that's able to narrate the customer Lens. Those are things that CEO's value and adds true regardless of the CEO's background. At least in what I've seen so I think those are things that are super important. Ten doesn't matter where the background is from again. I would say the challenges of questions you tend to get in terms of the effectiveness of marketing. Which all have some ground missing truth tend to be more from the partners than necessarily the marketing leader that CEO. And so. I think that's that's where the relationships across the organization I think are the most important thing. Yeah no that's a great insight to well let's talk about. Hr Block. Because I know your role includes responsibility for financial products in like we've talked about refunds tax refunds taxes was traditionally. I thought about Asian are block in the types of solutions. That you guys provided. But I didn't think about financial products. So maybe you could just update us on what the overview if you will the HR block What is the span of the products and Solutions? That you guys have today. Also John I like have twenty one million customers use US. Our primary products of course tax We have a fair number of those customers that use us directly online. In other words they go to our Dot Com find piece of our software that they could use to fill out their taxes. And Go ahead and do it. And then there's a sizable population of those that. Go to our our store for offices and Has One concept with with a tax pro and get their taxes? Docket both those scenarios. We provide a different levels off of additional services that they get a financial products. Brown so They run the gamut from Refunded advance Which is essentially instead of waiting for your refund to come from the IRS. However long that takes you can actually get the refund right away and we provide. That is a free service that you get the refund. Ed You can walk out the door with a refund and we take the proceeds when the IRS and We have products called Emerald advance. Which is a similar. It's It's a ability to get dollars in dance at. It's actually starts even earlier than the refunded band spirit. So you actually haven't filed your taxes yet you just. You're in advance of that. You're identifying that offer essentially dollars to we also have avid card which is called the Emerald Card. The Card is essentially a debit card. That works like many others that are available but the in our scenario the great advantage is we placed You can choose to place a refund advance onto the debit card or the emerald advance onto debit card. And then you walk out the door from finishing your taxes and you can start spending money and we also have. Have you have other products? But we had a long time those product but those are the core and service products and we also have some warranty products essentially protections for your identity. And things like that so we have a series of products that we offer over the course of your tax event awesome. I appreciate that Kazaa listeners. In the US all over the world actually in so nice. Overview of or block is perfect given the current tax delays. If you will in the. Us of tax lines being pushed back at how? How chaotic has that been? I guess on Your Business or is it PR easy to make that transition for you guys. While it definitely wasn't easy it hasn't been easy won't be easy but it's actually a little bit of great pride for me and the company normally as we have ten thousand offices around the country and our tax pros You know we'll have eighty thousand packs so this is a very large operation across the country every in every town and every main street. It's a sizable retail operation. And obviously that is that was materially affected by by the Cova crisis and so the question became. How do we serve our clients? I do we serve our employees our tax professionals and then we serve the company in a way that lives up to our core values. And we've always said that. Were about helping and inspiring confidence clients communities everywhere and if there was ever a moment where we needed to help and inspire confidence. It was now right orders. In this moment of crisis people still needed their refund. It was important. And if you know about the stimulus payment that was dependent on the having the right information and they get the information from the taxes you file so if you haven't filed in awhile again it becomes important that you're able to file so many many reasons for us to find ways to serve clients and so we created something called digital drop off which we did in a matter of a week and a half or so which was an ability to drop off your documents either physically or digitally and then allowing the taxpayer to complete your taxes than sending you back to you and then UCF chronic signature to complete faxes and that was supplemented by another product. We have called tax pro. Go which does essentially the same thing although you you actually do more of the things on your own on on this piece of software so Really did transform the business to help serve the clients and it's still happening to your point. Taxes are now due July fifteenth at Taxes. And who knows what the future holds? It's amazing you guys were able to respond like that. That's fantastic both protecting the ability to file. But also your frontline workers as end just taxpayers in general. So it's awesome yeah. Why don't pretend that it was easy and simple way? What was great about? It was an has been when push comes to shove and we we. We were Immediately we working from Paul. We're doing all these things trying to zoom together and getting the right things working.

Why the OnePlus 8 is its most expensive flagship yet
"Talking about the one plus one plus eight pro itself. You talked about these base or the the best phones out. There had to talk about the price though at seven hundred dollars. This is twice as much as that original one possible which drove people crazy because it was phenomenal value and interestingly enough the same price as the iphone eleven the one plus a pros even pricier at eight. Ninety you've had a reputation as a company that's put up products with you know. High End specs the best of the specs with aggressive pricing. But talk a little bit about what went into the decision to make these phones. What the Price Tag. Because they're more expensive than previous versions And you know the time when you know folks are trying to get more competitive pricing and I think You know one. Plus consumers do have very fond memories of kind of our early products and they were disrupted from a pricing standpoint. Definitely I think that hasn't actually changed when he's kind of step back and look to it. Our goal always along was to make the best devices best user experience best performance and now in the last year and a half. We've emerged as a leader in terms of introducing new technologies that are better on first market before everybody else. I would say that even though the eight pro is as you mentioned eight ninety nine when you look that device when you look at the fact that it's five G. When you look at the fact that everything that's on his you can't get anywhere else and then you look and you look at what it's competing against. It's still a pretty strong. I think price comparison to the desk phone. That's out there from from from Samsung and so us same day so even though prices in this category have gotten higher. The technologies made huge leaps and bounds. I think consumers are getting ready to make the jump to five G. These are things that they're going to own for the next two to three years as you make that jump and get a chance to experience. Vijay. They're gonNA with us. They're going to be experiencing a hundred twenty hertz. Ninety Hurts Displays for the first time are charging technologies better than everybody else are. Software is better than ever anything else. That's out there so you're getting the best and when you compare it to the best. It's still I think represents disrupted price point compared to everything else. That's out there wireless charging aspect which I believe is only available night. The one plus eight pro because this is. This is a topic that I think I was ham. Repeat on just a year ago. Like why? Is it wireless charging in your phones? It's the flagship phone. This is this has become a flagship. Feature the Warp Chart version of wireless charging though talk a little bit about that and how stands apart from some of the other competitors? Peter you you know you know. I'm going to take credit for that for sure you can. You can't I mean don't get me wrong. I mean this has been a conversation you know. In the times we've had conversations over the last couple of years. It's something that's come up and I think what our philosophy has always been this kind of best performance fast and smooth meeting. We want everything to happen. Seamlessly instantaneously and charging technology is has been quicker than everybody else's and when we talk to users and we get user research that's always been the thing that's most important and Ozzy wireless has been introducing the last year and a half. It's a convenience factor that's important but we did want introduce wireless until it was. We can deliver a speed experienced that we felt was matched that so we didn't WanNa compromise our primary flossy on fast and now have debuted it on the approach to give people a choice in a chance to experience that and the the breakdown of going back to the break down these products as well. Plus a Pro. And one eight the carriers the obviously. Us carriers are only selling the one plus eight. I'm just curious what the decision was behind that.

I don't want to use you know that the F. five X. he D. word but you know I know I know I try to listen it is boxing only should we give up a little bit more yes yes yes absolutely and that's why I don't wanna say that word I don't use that word because they say it's going to take credit away from fury fury as president fury said I'm gonna press so I'm going to get right in his face I'm coming right after I'm in in in all honesty that's exactly what he's doing right now and I'm with you I got a four to one and it's not despite isn't close and you're right he might not make it past this round right here's the thing here's my knockout round right here so we'll see you know what's crazy is awesome Furie isn't doing his member when I said I I want to lose you so cocky he's not doing the hands behind the back today now he's not doing the I'm gonna stick my head out and see if I could make funny faces he still does the twitch thing which is part of his boxing you know what I'm saying is his boxing form but he's not play games we we picked up the got the wrong guy that was all business he's all business when he got into the ring yeah I know he is all business and like I said the the personality that people don't like if it is who you are it didn't to me I'm fine with if you're doing it for the show that's what we can get you in trouble and I when it comes to this fight and everything that we're seeing right now while there has been on his heels the entire fight is already been knocked down twice he's fallen he slipped his trip he just looks he looks very very very just uncharacteristically Dante wild I've never seen him look like this before and it's at the shop the word round six I'm in love something drastic happens I don't think he has it to go the distance I don't think he has a to go another round I was gonna say what does he have to do to try to get back in this fight and try to knock out fury but I I do that's too tough of a drawing he just looks absolutely exhausted right now he looks gas which is another surprising thing he's normally in great condition great shape he has a great training regiment of great died that he eats off of he looks gassed but he's not even moving up enough to be gas I'm like I said I'm so confused on what I'm seeing right now and what the heck is going on in this fight all right yeah was gonna say six rounds are now in the only round I gave Wilder was the second round other than that I gave Yuri one three four five and six and I wouldn't even blame somebody if they gave all six the fury this isn't even close hi I thought if this was going to go to the distance I was going to be another call despite this isn't even close now is this is not even close and he's down right now I got him down five five did not fire around the one one he definitely has the knock him out now he's because he's not he added he doesn't look like he's going to be about box his way to ten nine ten nine ten nine ten nine to finish off the fight he has got to go for now but he still has his right hand just be wary of that and it's sort of fights over there still an opening for right hand I can put on the computer very down I see they're talking to while they're now I get a feeling they may stop this fight if he gets enough one more bit of trouble or you know can't quite keep fury away from him they may just say enough is enough we don't want anybody getting you know he pretty hard because he just looks too wobbly right now and I I don't think he's going to muster up enough strength to put fury on his back I don't think you could not muster enough strength to even her fury right now like I said not unless he just connects with just a haymaker right hand of fury doesn't see coming because a box so we know that's not the point you see comment as the punch that you don't see comment is the one that cuts a lights out and put you down for night night time so it if this corner I I gotta fill in his corner might be talking about stopping this fight that's backing up yeah it's while others just back it up back it up back it up the whole time that that's not the way he is by the way you think the audience I'm in attendance have got their money's worth for this fight if they if they enjoy this one I think it's been a pretty good one better than the first one well like you said it's it's a pro it's a pro fury crowd it is it is A. pro ferry cry because now a lot of people talk about fairy been getting cocky I've heard just as many people say the same thing about Wilder that he's you know air again yeah yeah well you have to watch a lot of his videos he right yeah if you watch a lot of his you know interviews videos and things that nature and any he had the video which I didn't disagree with but I can see why society or people didn't like it last year at one of his training sessions where he kind of had this really mean that mean earnings talking so the report about my people in this and that and that that that just it's America so we know what that's about it it it rubs people wrong so they'll judge you off of that which I guess I I didn't have a problem with it but I can see why other people did all right well guess what we don't have to watch anymore of it they stop the fight while I'm fury had the why we're in the corner and was still on punches of course of all while they're upset visibly upset saying why did they stop the fight because you were in the corner getting beat and war torn he punches back so this is all over that fury crowd gonna be very happy and they're going to be writing to the to the window because he wanted it and there was no doubt in this time he deserve this one didn't it yeah I know he totally deserved this one man and I I don't know if you're used to I don't know a lot of talking about what do you mean what do you get involved when you're not strong you're not tall but you're not fighting back you're getting the you can't help it out to you we got us we got to stop this weekend we got to take care of you first I'm sorry this is and you guys well I just told you yeah I said I said if he gets in trouble one more time and I don't think it was so much the punches it was not the fact that he backed himself into the corner and it was just covering up and he wasn't fighting back they'll stop it ten out of ten times at that point yeah if you're not defending yourself when you're not going to put in what a good ref would do and I've seen this over a three boxes a good rebel yell throws a punch like you know flying back throw a punch it in L.

S. people in this especially today's society where did where did that one angel with all in one there's the good enters the bad within everything it with everybody and we live in this area now where you just wanna showed a good social media is allowed it to be where no one celebrates their failures no one celebrates their downfalls everything is always just so happy and so great so I don't think anybody would sit and be quiet there probably there are probably guys that are set in and be quite we're just seeing the ones that are talking but I guarantee you that they don't have you what's in our house they don't live in a glass house and I got skeletons in their closets so that's just my mindset it it doesn't make a difference what you're talking about people are ripping you I'll get you another one Walmart are you could decide to pull the resumes tomorrow just breaking your windows she takes a shot of a at us every week just what we need to get off my lawn guys ripping on the NBA concentration of the stars of the NBA is the reason there are the envy of the NFL and Major League Baseball there's a reason the NBA players of the most popular and the most endorsed in sports no NBA is that's the way they that's the way they market sell it he's right it's it's about individualism it's not about the team arm in football in baseball in hockey it's about the name on the front in the NBA it's about the name on the back I'm not so sure that's good for the NBA though is a beach right now it's not well it's not good for the NBA just look at the numbers the first of all he's dead wrong they're not envy these other results of the baseball was wrong we'll never hear the end of the valley okay go ahead no no I'm I'm a say you made you are dead wrong the reason why I like the NFL envies the NBA is because the NBA has guaranteed contracts and they don't nearly put their bodies mentally and physically through close to what a football player are NFL player puts their body so that's where it becomes one it got nothing to do about how to Liga's marketing or how the law how that lead to size the market players over eighteen it's about that money it's always gonna be about that money and I believe NFL place it would be the ones getting guaranteed contracts real quick if you look at the NBA yeah the guarantee contracts also this fifteen years ago sixty years ago when I first started my radio career it's going to be the downfall of the league because anybody walking god's green earth expressed in America if you can make a whole bunch of money with out having to improve who you are as an employee then who's going to get better tell me the guys tell me the guys that are really getting better what what did did the the whole phase of the NBA's change what's got like lebron's gone hold on you got a guy well that will decide on his next job Moran also another one but I think the I think the NBA does lack star power but NFL you couldn't guarantee the contracts because these guys would never come back from injury you you would never have that for that and that's a great point that and I didn't think about it that way that's a that's a great point I guess I being a former player myself man playing football it be a my favorite sport I just like to believe that you know the guys are tough enough in and love the game enough to want to come back and play so but that but you do make it you do make a great point right our one involved fox sees Vijay husky student for Aaron Torres Amartey Spanier get a hold of us at V.

And now Boston has dropped five six six returning from the all star break. Kyrie Irving did have twenty four points, nine rebounds, six assess and wall Boston was really focused on James harden.

Facebook had hired a Washington firm to discredit its critics, reports New York Times
"Bombshell investigation by the New York Times revealing that Facebook executives, including CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg or aware of a Russian misinformation campaign on social media network and took a series of extrordinary private actions to preserve Facebook's reputation launching an aggressive lobbying campaign to combat critics and spread misinformation. The New York Times investigation reveals that Facebook hired the Republican position research firm definers public affairs to discredit critics of Facebook linking them to the billionaire liberal donor. George syrups Facebook also allegedly lobby to Jewish civil rights group to condemn criticism of. The company scientists semitic since the publication of the investigation face because announced it will cut to is with the Finers during Thursday's press. Call Zuckerberg dismiss claims Facebook ignored Russia's election meddling or undermined investigations. Many times before that we were to slow to spot Russian interference to stand it into slow to get on top of it. And we certainly stumbled along the way. Suggest that we weren't interested in knowing the truth or that we wanted to hide what we knew or that we try to prevent investigations is simply untrue. Zac, lemberg dodge questions about anyone being fired in light of the New York Times revelations. He said Facebook plans to institute an independent oversight board for more. We go to Washington DC where we're joined by Rashad Robinson, president of color of change one of the organizations targeted by definers, public affairs. The PR company Facebook, employed and endure New Hampshire. We're joined by C Vijay Nahthen, the author of antisocial media, how Facebook disconnects us and undermines democracy.

Now, we welcome. You voted mockery. Now, Seeven let's begin with you, can you summarize the New York Times investigation, and what most surprised and. Turned you about what it revealed about Facebook. Yeah. Sure. The look this time investigation took more than six months it required. The work of more than five reporters and a team of researchers it delved, very deeply into former Facebook employees and current Facebook employs and their testimony about what went on inside the company and just as importantly in Washington DC over the past two years now over the past two years, we have had this barrage. Revelations about Facebook. The the big picture is Facebook is impossible to govern impossible to control and Facebook had explicitly encouraged, for instance, all of our personal data to go out to third parties and fourth parties parties like Cambridge Analytica. We can't even know we're all this data win that was one scandal. The other scandalous Facebook is the -ceptable beyond susceptible Facebook amplifies, all sorts of misinformation propaganda disinformation much of which came from Russia trying to mess with American democracy. But a lot of it comes dmed. Soclean to domesticate groups comes from political operatives who seem a bit more mainstream within all of this right Facebook. We know has been scrambling to make sense of it has been declaring itself innocent and ignorant for for months and for years. Mark Zuckerberg has seemed stunned by this sort of cognitive dissonance that that his this this thing he created that was was to unify the world and make us all treat each other better his turned out to do just the opposite. What the times report showed is first of all that. In fact, Mark Zuckerberg has been checked out for more than two years. He's just not on top of the daily operations. He has let other people handle the reactions to these revelations and those other people include his chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg. But but there's a whole team of people, including a number of lobbyists who either worked directly for Facebook or have been contracting from Facebook, and they have been and this what's really mind blowing they have been distributing the same kinds of propaganda that have been. Undermining faith in American institutions and American democracy.
