The bureau of labor statistics is going to hit us with the jobs report for the month of february tomorrow. Another snapshot of how this economy is doing as a whole good in parts. Not so good in others. One part of the labor market. That is doing all right. Actually manufacturing marketplace's andy euler going where the jobs are. The john deere engine in tractor museum in waterloo iowa celebrates the history of mechanized agriculture but the museums hosting an event. This weekend. That is very much about the present a job.

Us manufacturing activity is up increasing three year high in february as consumer demand rebounded after the early stages of the pandemic manufacturing's been growing not quite for a year but for the last nine months.

Not great. no but this is a little bit misleading in terms of understanding. What's going on you aren't s. Q is at the university of pennsylvania school of social policy and practice businesses that were not as productive normally just by the nature of the activity such as restaurants and so on have started reopening. So that drags down the average productivity and today's numbers not entirely unexpected. Well that's happening. There is what we call a regression to the mean. Now why are we telling you. This is amount of zilder is at the conference board. It is a basis for future living standards if productivity rises sustainably.

Loujain al-Hathloul, Saudi women's rights activist, released from prison
"Done nothing except champion. A woman's right to drive a car. But yesterday saudi arabian activists widow. Jane hathloul was released after a thousand and one days in prison. Family members and international human rights groups have been calling for her release and an end to her alleged torture. Al hathloul was arrested in two thousand eighteen for leading a campaign to grant women the right to drive in saudi arabia. Dr best mamani joins me. Now she's a professor of political science at the university of waterloo canada. Welcome to the program. How significant is this Lujan al hathloul release from jail. Well it's just wonderful news to be honest with you. I think so. Many of us were worried for her. She's a wonderful person. And i think certainly the fact that She's finally been released is a great thing. But they're still a lot of concern about her situation. And i think there's going to be a large discussion. And hopefully she'll be able to at some point talk about the really the suffering she endured. I mean the photo of her after release. It's joyous smile. But how does login even start to rebuild life after trauma like this. There are allegations of torture during your time in jail. So i think the rebuilding process for her is going to be significant. Certainly of course the the trauma being imprisoned I think there was abuse That may have been sexual nature as well torture from looking at the picture. She's clearly thinner. She has gray hair now and i met her five years ago with not a not a single gray hair on her head and i mean there's definitely a beaming smile in the photo. And that's because she's with her her parents but she still separated from her siblings of course many of which are outside the country and ex husband. You know there was a falling out of of a marriage because of the so. I think there's there's a lot of pain and suffering. I'm sure aside from her parents. You have a sense of what her support system in. Saudi is no i think She's certainly under a some sort of gag. Order not to speak to people and i suspect House arrested is a part of that. So she's not gonna have free movement in any way She has a wonderful family parents. Who are very supportive And have been really behind her from from day one of her activism. they're really quite impressive. People dutchwoman. Let's get to the bigger picture. We know that crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed bin salman sees himself as a reformer. What impact could james release have on the internal politics of saudi. Arabia haven't been really wants to take this as a win. A certainly i think if it wasn't for the biden administration coming in. I don't think we would have seen her release unfortunately so elections matter as they say but one of the things that i think her story will be told hush hush i think many people are discussing it online and certainly social media buzz there some very interesting hashtags and saudis twitter to talk about all these kinds of issues there still a lot of great discontent at the same time. Unfortunately hamad bin salman is seen as reformer in some way internally. He's opened up the country culturally. And and certainly you know. Put down the conservative or religious police which is a welcome news for young people. So you know. I think she she would be to be honest with you and more popular of saudi arabia than inside saudi arabia. But that's partly because of kind of nationalist propaganda that has permeated much of saudi society today.

"Napoleon was mortally wounded at the battle of waterloo as explained after his defeat at waterloo employees and manage to flee but he was eventually captured wasn't injured but this time he was exiled to a much more remote location and that's where he lived out the remainder of his days. That just about wraps up our time together today before we go the last thing like to do on each and every episode is to share. How much time and effort went into creating this episode. No that's not something that most podcast dune. That's exactly why. I'm sharing this information. There's one thing this really surprising to a lot of people. When they're new to podcasting live never created a podcast before always surprised at just how much time it takes to create them. So i figure maybe if you find out how much time and effort goes into creating a podcast. Like mine then. Maybe you'll start to appreciate all of the podcasts that you listened to for free just a little bit more with that said. Today's episode took a total of thirty seven hours to create and cost twenty one dollars and thirteen cents an out of pocket expenses. Now as i always do. I want to make it clear that time and cost only my time for this one episode in other words at thirty seven hours obviously doesn't include the years of my guest time researching the subject matter that we talked about. It also does not include the time it takes for me to do podcast related things. That aren't really part of creating this one single episode. For example the time it takes to maintain based on true story podcast dot com the podcast website. Be social media for the podcast. The email newsletter. All those other little things that are outside creating this one episode about waterloo but it still required to make the overall podcast similarly on the expensive side that twenty one dollars and thirteen cents is just four things specifically related to this one episode. It doesn't include all of the podcasts related expenses. Go beyond this episode for example. The microphone that. I'm talking in to right now. The cables that are hooked up to the microphone the audio interface computer. That's recording this. The software the podcast and website hosting costs and on and on this a lot of costs that go into creating an overall show that go beyond just creating this one episode about waterloo. All of those things take time to set up and maintain. They cost money and that goes beyond things that are associated with this one episode. But they're all things that are required. Because if i didn't do those things there would not be any episodes of based on a true story at all in a nutshell. This podcast is free to listen to but it is not free to create far from it and that is why i am so thankful for the wonderful people who are helping to support this show financially so we can keep going if you enjoy today's episode. I hope you'll consider helping. Support the next episode over at based on a true story podcast dot com slash support..

In conveying the brutality of this battle the sheer carnage that Of the early nineteenth century Battles indeed walks with allie's right into my next question because at the very end of the movie we do see how two main characters with wellington pulling kind of changed over the course of the events in the movie and in the beginning you mentioned that at the ball while he was there he said something to the effect of how expects his soldiers to die for him simply because it's their duty but then at the end there's a couple lines i hope to god. I've fought my last battle and next to a battle lost. The saddest thing is about a one and then as far as napoleon concern you can tell just the delicious weighs very heavily on them. We don't see a lot of really what happens to him. He just kinda gets in a carriage and rides away but what was the aftermath of the battle of waterloo. and how did it affect napoleon and wellington.

C. four roads by calibra and wellington decides that he's going to confront napoleon at nearby waterloo. Is that a pretty accurate reason. For why the battle ended up taking place at waterloo. Yes i think it's a pretty close now. I do you want to mention that. The movie has a wonderful reconstruction of the famous ball. That british sweat anti this was a ball given deduct by richmond and the british military leaders attending there. Their william in their wives are quite charming atmosphere. And the man.

And you see quick reaction right where the soldiers have to leave and to go in the stock moment where the women are. You're left alone and demand lee and then the allowed the scene when wellington is meeting with officers. As you've said. And the luke all the math and the see how in the only is moving and what they debt is when he struck into belgium.

And now he can keep these allies separate butts in order to for the point thence achieve the second success he needs to engage the allies in defeat and to focuses.

Fired Tyson manager defends COVID-19 bets as morale booster
"Earlier we shared a story involving the waterloo tyson meat packing plant and how it's facing wrongful. Death lawsuits from the family members of employees who died as a result of contracting corona virus. Well seven managers at that plant have been fired and one of them is speaking out because he thinks it's important for everyone to know that they're not bad people there actually great people who were just trying to make the work environment fun especially when they were taking bets on how many of their employees would get sick by contracting corona virus so former tyson manager don merged mersch brock said managers conducted the office pool last spring within minutes following mass testing of the plants. Roughly twenty eight hundred workers county officials said last may that more than one thousand workers tested positive for the virus which hospitalized several and killed at least six now. The family members of four of the employees who had died are suing in wrongful death suits and merce brock says. No i mean we're not again. We're not bad people. we're just trying to boost morale. This is exact quote he tells the associated press. it was a group of exhausted supervisors. That had worked so hard and so smart to solve many unsolvable problems. It was simply something fun. Kind of a morale boost for having put forth an incredible effort. There was never any malicious intent. It was never meant to disparage anyone and just to give you some more details on what this pool entailed again. It was a pool among managers at this meat packing plant in waterloo iowa. The office pool involve roughly fifty dollars in cash which went to the winner who picked the correct percentage of workers testing positive for the virus. He also added that. Those involved didn't believe the pool violated company policy and that plants. Positively and the plants positivity rate would be lower than the community rate due to their mitigation efforts. So let me just quickly mentioned with. The mitigation efforts were Based on the allegations these lawsuits there were none. The employees are alleging that they were told by their employers to ignore any symptoms that they may have as a result of contracting corona virus They were pressured to continue working. And they were of course packed into tight quarters as they were working with no social distancing and again the allegations include the fact. They didn't provide protective gear like masks to prevent contracting the virus. So those are the mitigation efforts that this former manager who's been fired from tyson wants to point to so guys. I don't want you to miss something really important in this story Which is a tyson china. Whitewash what's happening here by blaming the managers so it doesn't mean the managers weren't guilty of and i i mean i don't mean that in a legal sense i just mean in a sense of moral culpability. No you should not bet on. How many workers are going to get sick by the way it turns out. The crack number was a thousand thousand of their workers. Got corona virus. Six died so four of the deceased family. Members are suing. Now and so tight. That manager says something abhorrent about how oh just boosting morale talking about how the workers are gonna die. How many of them are gonna get sick spot for us managers. I don't think that's fun and i. If that's what boosts morale for managers that's pretty sick having said that the real culpable people here is is the company because that measure says look they told us solve this unsolvable problem and that he's right they say okay don't take precautions Shoves all back into a building where we know. They're likely to get corona virus and then afterwards will blame you guys For not getting enough production and having too many people get sick but wait a minute was executives decisions not even the managers but executives higher in the company that made that decision so are they more culpable absolutely and so in this particular case. What do they do. And this is what drives me crazy again about the press. They hire former attorney. General eric holder to do a whitewashing effort. And he says yes. The managers are guilty but the company's fine what they paid them to say that he's a lawyer i get it. He has a job. His job is to help companies avoid lawsuits etc so holders during his job but but the press should not give any weight to the fact that he's a former attorney general he was hired a whitewash he whitewashed and the and they make. It all. Seem like only the manager's fault. no it's in this case. It's tyson spalte. Forgiving them can manage irs shoved them back in their. Don't take the precautions. The only thing that matters the bottom line and then go. Oh golly gee they made a bet. I can't believe they did that. It's only therefore and not our fault. Nonsense

$916 billion White House coronavirus relief proposal
"Really wanna fill you guys in on Corona virus aid before we do our interview with senator sanders. So let's get right to it. There's a new and critical update to the corona virus negotiations that are taking place between congressional lawmakers and the white house now. Yesterday it was reported that the white house was urgently asking. Gop senators to approve one time. Six hundred dollar direct checks to americans as part of the coronavirus relief bill and at that time it really did seem as though The trump administration was outflanking democrats in congress from the left But now it's abundantly clear that that's not actually what's going on. It turns out that the one time six hundred dollar check that would be sent to americans would be a trade-off or essentially getting rid of the federal unemployment aid of three hundred dollars per week. Okay that tradeoff off seems pretty ridiculous. And so nancy pelosi talked about it. A little bit today She certainly clap back but she did. Treasury secretary steve mnuchin released a statement. Are you in this speaker. Pelosi spoke today at five pm and on behalf of the president. I presented a nine hundred sixteen billion dollar proposal. This proposal includes money for state and local governments and robust liability protections for businesses schools and universities. Now pelosi wasn't buying it mostly because she had some insight that most others didn't have and she says while it is progress that leader mcconnell has signed off on a nine hundred sixteen billion dollar offer based on the bipartisan framework The president's proposal which cuts unemployment insurance by one hundred forty billion dollars compared to the framework is unacceptable. So she says it's a nonstarter. I absolutely agree with her. On that. and there are all sorts of issues in regard to the liability protections That are offered by republicans. But before i get to that and katie porter shredding republicans for it john. Why don't you jump in. yeah. I find it very difficult to comment on this because the contents of the package change so often. I mean just yesterday mitch. Mcconnell was saying that it wasn't a prerequisite at the liability protections. It'd be in there but now it is again. I i don't or maybe it is. I don't know. I honestly don't know we don't know what is in the bill until after it's passed and usually not even then usually we're not sure even at that point especially You know the amount of money that we're talking about but it is like it's it's again. It's perfect that they've come up with a financial trade off the onetime payments versus basically cutting off the unemployment aid that makes sense to people on insurance that planned to die in the next week and a half it makes financial sense to them or people who are yet on Unemployment insurance and Having wised up to the fact that the federal government is still effectively doing nothing to stop the spread of the virus. And so it's gonna get worse and more businesses are going to get shut down and so a lot of people that are currently unemployed are probably gonna end up unemployed by the end of this dark winter And this is as we'll probably talking about what senator sanders. This is shaping up to be the last thing that they'll do like we've waited almost a year and this. I am trying to search for word that allowed to us on this now. Right now Is the last thing that they're going to do. Insult to injury in every possible way. It's yeah it's just it's so so shameful especially when you put it in the context of how easily the funding for Defense for the pentagon is gonna pass probably with a veto proof. Vote in both the house which already happened and the senate which is likely to happen in the future. That's seven hundred forty billion dollars every year. The number goes up for the most part. And there's no debate about it. It's just going to happen. But i do want also talk a little bit about the liability protection or lybia liability shield which Mitch mcconnell seems to only care about like that's the only thing that he's been pretty insistent on It seemed like maybe he can bend to democrats will on it If there were some pretty significant trade offs But katie porter Did a great job in explaining why this is a horrendous. A provision in the stimulus bill she says you may have heard that democrats and republicans have agreed upon spending nine hundred billion dollars to fund yet another round of small business loans support hospitals in essential workers and helped the ten million people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own everyone at the negotiating table including senate. Republicans have agreed to a compromise except one mitch. Mcconnell is refusing to bring it to the floor unless it wipes away all cove related lawsuits filed that allege injury or death due to corporate negligence. And she goes on to say that. These lawsuits represent the worst of the worst examples of disregard for human life cases filed on behalf of nursing home patients and grocery store workers who died because the company in charge of keeping them safe prioritize cutting costs over protecting them. And i think one of the best examples to share with you guys is what is happening now with a tyson. Meat packing plant Where You know tyson facing a wrongful death lawsuit because dozens of their workers got sick and died due to their negligence. Cnn has more details on that. Let's watch according to the allegations. The plant manager of the waterloo facility organized a cash volume winner. Take all betting pool for supervisors and managers to wager. How many employees would test positive for covid. Nineteen in the end more than a thousand employees would catch the virus about a third of the nearly three thousand working at the plant on stare. Ernest ladders spoke to c. n. N.'s gary tuchman in april about his conversation with tyson's hr department. They told me I was i was i was i was safe. And they told me that Everything was okay and they told me. I have a better chance. A catching the corona virus. Going out to walmart and enticing. Come the work. you safe. The tyson employers also allegedly told their employees to ignore any symptoms. They might be suffering from contracting corona virus into just keep working. it's doesn't insane yeah no the. The era of self-regulation of plants like tyson one needs to change. Which is a whites. Good that the department of agriculture is gonna be controlled by tom. Bill sack who while he was governor by said that they should self-regulate

We Went to Goodwill Everyday for A Week. Here's What Happened.
"Welcome back everyone welcome back. I'm Nina I'm Shannon we did a thing. We did. So. This was your idea Tomo. Tell them what it was. Yeah. So it was like Hey Dina we have a lot of time on her hands. Let's go to the store every day for a week and you're like. I. Already do that. Let's do it. I do I didn't realize I was doing it until you kinda called me out on it. It didn't really start off as a challenge for me. I found myself with some extra time that I've been home since March I was a selling machine, right? Like people are a buying mood right now. So I kept going back to restock stuff and then you call me out on it and I noticed how much I was going and so you're like, let's make it official and do a goodwill challenge where we went to goodwill days in a row and we wanted to see what we found in how we felt. Yeah. I feel like it was more of a challenge for me than it was for you. You're dislike dislike no big deal. Aw, who do this right here right now. I like Tuesday it was like redone. Yeah. I. All right. So let's tell them where we went. Okay. We feel like we started off strong because on Monday we went to bins and the actual good bull story that is connected to in on Waterloo and that was a good day but I feel like the bins kind of out a little bit. Yeah. And then the next day we went to state road, and then we of decided to go our separate ways for the rest of the week and I went to state road again, just to kind of check it out see what was going on see if there's any new things pop in. then. The end of the week I went to the Canal Fulton store and the Jackson store. So I was all over in multiple counties. Yeah. You sure will. Really weren't counting. Okay. So that's nice. We had a nice variety. We weren't sure if we're going to do the same exact goodwill every day, but realistically, it just didn't work out that way. So we kinda mixed it up. Let's get to the good part then. Okay. Let's talk about what were the main lessons takeaways what did you learn throughout the experience? Okay Honestly my one is I need to get back on a budget because by the end of the week I was like, oh My money. So I think that in the beginning of the year I had like a hard goal of being on a budget and having an amount that I was going to be spending monthly, and then with everything happening with the world I kind of got away from that because it didn't really need to budget for places I wasn't going, and then now I'm back out and I'm Kinda, gone gangbusters and just like vinyl too much. So that's kind of my number one is get back on a budget. That's a great point I. Remember you had a really good budget plan we talked about it before i. Even had remember you said you were going to set aside some money for sustainable brand right I need to get back on that train. Well, did you have fun? Yeah I, S- I had fun until it didn't. But I'm a grown I'm not as patient as you are. So I think like I'm very much like. At a certain point I'm done and I need to leave the store but. I think when we were together, you're there a little bit longer you know. So even just like are you okay you can leave you know and I felt bad because I'm sure you could tell that I was like so ready to leave but you definitely stay in longer than I do I'm just like sometimes I can do like thirty minutes forty five minutes but you're a good hour and a half girl if you're going hard, you know. So it's just like that's hard for me to to look. At a certain point he was like, okay let's go and you're like, Oh, I just got started on this. Yeah. Yeah that raises an important point about finding your balance as a thriftier because everybody thinks that you have to do marathon thrifts because that's just kind of how it is you WANNA, go to every corner you wanna see everything you don't want leave anything behind but I think you have to find that balance that works for you because then you will start to hate it. I like I like both like now that I have time on my hands I it's nothing for me to go in for an hour and a half. But when I'm working outside of the home and I'm not as flexible I'm in and out in our like thirty minutes looking third fifteen minutes paying fifteen minutes trying on. So it's like it's a quick process and so I could tell like I was like chicken you're putting off a lot of nervous energy right now because I was trying to do my car edit right? Like I'm going through my carton folding everything and taking pictures of everything and you're just like you were grandpa like pacing back and forth. I'm like you can leave. You know that I thought that I was getting away with it because at mask on it was like she can't see my face. I'm good shed and didn't even need to look at you the energy you were putting out like I was like Oh. My God. Am I gonNA get grounded I feel like I'm in trouble right now you say you're GonNa Kinda scared. So. Nervous that I like kind of shook it off Mike. All right. Talk Myself Out of it like you don't have much today you don't different our show. So yeah, I'm such a impatient person sometimes no I think that it's just you. I totally get that like there are some stores that I would never want to be in that in there for that long and so I think it's fine. Everybody has their different comfort level where everybody has a different comfort level and you just have to figure out what that is and that way you won't. You won't hate it right now. Yeah. So I did I did have fun I did get tired but I felt like it was a true. Thrill and treasure hunt. But besides that. So one of the first takeaways for me was that it really reminded me of how much stuff we consume. Oh, I know seeing new stuff every day. Made me both happy because I was finding really cool stuff. I was also felt like I was saving things from landfills. But I was also shocked by the sheer volume of stuff. One store can put out every single day. Like we knew that goodwill put out thousands of stuff a day especially at the bins. But when you see it happen and kind of unfold before your eyes it's like a remarkable thing, right? Right because I'm a here yesterday and now there's more and then like I'm still I'm there for two hours and then they over they rolled out like three or four carts like it's a lot harder stuff that we have in this world.

One of the most gruesome battles ever waged aged ending Francis almost total control over Europe more than fifty thousand french-british and Prussian troops died and absolutely staggering loss of life but many of these soldiers had a very strange afterlife well. I mean their teeth did yes. I said their teeth before I get to those teeth. There are a couple things you need to know. I the Napoleonic days were desperate times throughout Europe. The poor were really really close.

They've been out in betas since two thousand seven, but the general public really didn't have access to Google Android until the fall of two thousand eight. So. Minta core sqi wasn't really looking at Iowa's or Android as the foundation for his project. When he first got started, he was instead looking at blackberry from research in motion. He was looking at that because it was the smartphone that was really the the most popular in the United States at that time in North America that time it was most frequently associated with corporate executives, everyone thought of blackberries as being sort of the the white collar smartphone. But this was an era when the smartphone and not really started to filter into the general population beyond early adopters with Apple's iphone. And even then, like I said, there was no app store. So Menshikov skiing would move forward with developing a smartwatch that could connect to a blackberry phone via bluetooth. Any formed a company for this purpose.

He built a smartwatch that could display not just the time, but notifications from a blackberry phone, including blackberry messages and complete messages of that.

"This week on the naked scientists. You're with me Georgia mills, and I'm finding out about battlefield archaeology. Uncovering the secrets of Waterloo. I'm working out how something from two hundred years ago can help veterans today. So the battle itself, what happened. Napoleon's forces were advancing towards Brussels, Wellington smaller army had to hold them off knowing Prussian reinforcements on that way. The fighting was particularly faced Hugo from the allied forces trying to hold off a French on onslaught. The field outside the compound's became suitably dubbed the killing zone. Meanwhile, in the surrounding fields, bloody battle, ebbed and flowed throughout the day, men horses and artillery collided in a massive flesh lead on smoke, and it resulted in the death of a forty thousand people. But this is just haven't been found back to Tony. There are several theories that could be drawn from one is that in the decades following the battle, the mass graves that will to Lou and other battlefields from the Napoleonic era across your were actually exploited for the human bone. Because prior to the modern phosphates industry bonemeal was very important to lines along with things. Who, and it was a bit of an industry. So teams would go out scarring. These big battlefields and no doubt asking the locals where the big graves were that would be worth while the truly quarrying and given this one is represented in painting. It's highly likely that even twenty years later would be remembered and they may well have come here and dug out the bones and ship them back to hull in England when ground up spread on the fields. Yes, unpleasant, these were these were hard times the idea that people are coming here and moving those bodies has. The evidence is here to suggest that might be the case because we just don't have them. Now there is another less gruesome theory and that there is a war grave, but it's just somewhere known thought to look yet and the team are keen to emphasize. They're not actively looking for human remains, but there are still lots of items telling the story of the battle being on a minute. By minute.
