"Everybody my guest. Today are roger mcnamee and zephyr teach out. And i guess my first question is how did you ever get the name. Roger mcnamee so i got it from my parents. Remarkably enough And when. I told my daughter that my guest was zephyr. Teach out She knew of of us ever and she said with that name. It's a good thing. She became progressive activist. Ran for office. there was an early poll that showed that eight percent of people had heard of me and eighteen. Percent of people didn't like me so apparently the name starts. It's like what is that massive. A thing is it a company But it's it's a great name. You can't not remember zephyr teach out so let me tell everybody who. You guys are Roger you're one of the early investors in in facebook and in fact you didn't. You put cheryl sandberg and mark zuckerberg together that. I did indeed and you know the great harvard scholar. Sheshona zubov likes to describe sheryl sandberg's typhoid mary the internet. Which makes me the uber driver for the typhoid mary leader neck because i helped to get cheryl introduced to google when she came out of washington than i did introduce her to mark zuckerberg and broker to go to facebook and so In retrospect That didn't work out quite as well as i hoped it would. Zephyr is an attorney associate professor of law at fordham and author And her latest book is break them. Up a fair but kind of scathing examination of the monopoly powers of companies like facebook and google and amazon and Tyson you guys know each other. You discuss the stuff right. That's right yeah. I'm a huge fan of zephyr. Because i think that She was one of the earliest people to call for a return of traditional government approaches to the economy and especially to managing capitalism anti-trust. It will any trust being one of the most important tools for doing that. And that voice that she brought to it was absolutely essential to Getting a started at a time when frankly it was accepted wisdom that markets should be left alone and should be allowed to allocate capital throughout the economy. And in retrospect we see that. That's not worked out. Well by the way Police are coming for raja right now. Yeah well that's that happens to me every day. So if i if i cut out of here quickly al you'll know why okay. Wow that is. That's i think that's coming from me. Okay well it's good to know that You're okay though right..

"I think there's a lot of weird kilts that comes up around ethical consumerism. Both guilt and pride in both can be really dangerous. The guilt is that well. If i haven't boycotted amazon my allowed to go to de blasio and tell him to knock give them a subsidy. Yes you can absolutely can fall choice. And then the pride is that it turns out that people who choose not to use products for ethical reasons are actually less likely to take political action. I think that our ethical consumer boycott approach has almost let us to accept these as our overlords. It's like we've accepted. Mark zuckerberg as our king of communications and privacy. And that is crazy. I don't wanna be begging mark zuckerberg. I would never select him to be king. Even if i believed in kings i would never want. Jeff bezos to be my emperor. Even if i believed in emperors we have to turn to the tools. That actually can do something about it. As opposed to being in the supplicant position begging zuckerberg to be a a nicer overlord. Yes i totally agree. That's funny but so what would it look like to break up. One of them facebook or amazon. Whichever one you want to talk about how would it actually look to the consumer and what would it do to the business model. Let's just take amazon. Because i think it's the easiest. So amazon has a service that connects buyers and sellers and it's separately owns businesses that are sellers and it separately owns warehouses and shipping services. Those are the three key things that you probably run into as somebody buying amazon. There is no reason that amazon. The connecting service needs to also own the warehouses and shipping. And in fact if you talk to amazon sellers they'll regularly tell you how amazon basically bullies sellers into using its shipping products. Because if you use it. Shipping products sellers believe. They are more likely to get good placements in search results. When you search for shoes it is not sending you the quote unquote shoes has an algorithm that prefers sellers that pay amazon in other ways. So wait is far far from neutral so amazon. The platform should be split up from amazon warehouses. There's no reason those two should be together and it creates all kinds of different conflicts of interest amazon. The platform should be split up from amazon. That is also selling on the platform selling shoes competing with the other shoe sellers because basically amazon is now in a position to steal data from the company's on its platform and compete against them. And then what's left is you'll have this platform the seller and buyer platform and that we should treat like we do railroads like you can exist and you can be private but you basically have to be treated like a public utility. You have to have fair open access. For all non-discrimination principles apply amazon. Shouldn't.

"The structure of our economy. That's what the report is about. That's why I was. So inspired by it is. The the analysis was was actually bipartisan when she never see Kevin Bach. Armstrong, there were other Republicans who said, yeah, we have a serious monopoly problem. About what you do is not bipartisan but when you look at who the Democrats are on the committee, you ask. Of My Heroes Great. Heroes, but you also have a congress. Congresswoman scanlon congresswoman path. Congress members who were in tough swing districts both took over in previously Republican districts search huge ideological range. And they're all saying we need structural separation. We need to overturn these bad laws. We need more aggressive enforcement. So I'm a I'm an unabashed progressive, Democrat but. Not, actually this is not an area where unlike a medicare for all where there's a a division within the party wants people actually look at what's happening because because the harms of Amazon spectrum around visor bear are so deep and it is it is a threat to our democracy. It's like trump on one side and you got a big monopolies on the other and we're trying to. Get through the Silla incorrupt Caribbean to actually a society where people have real dignity and in their workplace, which is so work. No, it is so important one last word about the book, break them up by Zephyr teach out the forwarders written by Bernie. So that alone is worth the price of admission, but the book is too so. There's that now Zephyr teach I really wanted to talk to you this week because like so many millions I believe of. I watched the confirmation hearings this week for Amy County Barrett. who sounds like an Android to me? She's just so robotic. To. The Supreme Court but that's the lease of my objections to her A. When I'm researching her I realize there's a lot of. Correlations. Between the two of you she before she's only been a judge for than three years she was chosen by the Federalist Society to for in a list of names given to Donald Trump for who he should consider putting on the bench. She was a law school professor at Notre Dame she from what I understand she. She never even tried a case. And she was plucked out to be a judge on the Seventh District Court of Appeals. Because of her very right wing conservative views now. So she's only been a judge less than three years is she qualified to be a supreme court. Justice. You know I think this whole nomination is a sham I think the entire process is. Is deeply deeply illegitimate. The idea of selecting a Supreme Court justice in this incredibly short amount of time. So yes, you know in the last three weeks. People have dug up some information but. You certainly wouldn't get well, maybe a few people do but I'd recommend against it. You get married after three weeks. And choosing somebody to govern, and this is effectively what we're talking about is because we have judicial supremacy in this country. Choosing a person who will have along with Justice Roberts and others power to make decisions about your body. The economy doting rights our ability to pass anti-corruption laws in a in a period social. So yes, I have like particular criticisms but I actually, I'm not I am not even engaging in the Barrett discourse 'cause I think the entire question is not is Barrett. Herself the wrong justice it's is this is this process at all legitimate is wholly illegitimate. There's so much. We do not know people are rightly focused on selecting a new Senate Congress and president it is the wrong time and it is. It I. I have been really disappointed in watching the hearings because there's something about serve even asking her tough questions about her past puts her in the play of being a somehow normal and this whole process being somehow normal and it is a holy holy problematic process and I, I, mean the the field that I have spent the most time setting recently. Antitrust Anti Monopoly feel is election law and I actually I called for expanding the court after the holy illegitimate decision of the Supreme Court in Shelby County. Exact. Yeah. Where where Justice Roberts in a massive power grab. came up with a very creative Nisa, generous way to put it theory to strike down this essential law that protects basic freedoms. And the idea of a six three Roberts court I got to be blunt with you. Whoever is in that seat? It's a six three robbers court we are talking about. The, all the the the the the little that is left of the Voting Rights Act and what is left of our campaign finance laws being under threat I can imagine next year. A decision of. A new six, three Roberts court saying that. Corporations can that political state political parties can take on corporate money. We've already moved pretty far down the citizens United Pathans had devastating effects on.

"Obama basically dismantled. the grassroots arms that helped get him electives and said I know why your opinion on policy and you're going to be a unarmed where we just shot music knows very critical at the time that it is going to weaken his power. It's usually. Power, and weirdly we have the reverse plus situation this remember if find. US, which is that I did not have this nascar us. People who we can show off. Who are GonNa say all now he's saying to be quiet and waits. Wait. Not GonNa wait to hear what Grassroots Energy's not gonNA wait for permission. So Maybe I'm being pollyannaish, but that is the silver lining here is like okay. there. has never been a more change my mind moment. Okay this is this our organizing couch Janu impacts the presidency with grassroots organizing a sitting. Sitting Democratic president with grassroots organizing well. We're. GonNa try. And I don't think there's going to be a lot of hesitating criticizing I, take your point. I don't actually think people. Yeah. That's what I meant. I meant like once they're in power I'm worried that will be used but but I do think actually. One of the I think Matt, you're probably. I'm probably just as much pessimistic about this actually as you are but one of the slight. Rays of hope I think that exists is that when Obama came in, there was no more leftist like wing of the party that lost like it's not like Obama beat someone who was further left right in this case obviously Biden is it and i. mean part of me is like, why would why would biden moves to the left? Now also like why would he move if once he's president because we have nowhere else to go. He's going to take us for granted but I do think like the little thing of hope is that there was this taste of potential actually more leftist Like. Power and hopefully, that'll make people give people like a the permission or the the confidence in demanding more. It's. Is Where the energy is. So I, look at my I treat this as a as a poker player. It's not that it's likely to be right. So and the odds in good enough to stay in the game it's not. A lot of reasons. Leaked us. So I am doing this. Is I guess what's I want to say You are demanding something of A. cursive. Ministration. One of the things the core things to demand is, yes talk about policy talk about power. Right so like if we're always on the on the frame of policy and gradually seating powers, these companies get more and more powerful. They can just you know. Give. US dollars an hour this week and take it away next week. Yeah. So they're playing on the antitrust plane they're playing on arbitration. They're all about hiring the best lawyers to make the worst arbitration contracts and hiring the best people coming from state agencies office to win every one of those cases. So like that's playing against. So why are we not playing on same field? Let Biden's year loud and clear that we are not Monsanto Bayer harshly unwind. And if progressive show up for farmers on Monsanto, which is like. WHO LOVES ONE SANCHO WHO LOVES BAYER That's that's an opportunity to not just say. Stop but like let's Redo this thing so that you have better food and better treatments of workers undertreatment farmers. Let's Redo this. Could read in the license really powerful but we gotta start doing it right now like the scenes are really exciting than their male giant hall is amazed. And I don't think it's an accident that she's from Seattle she gaps power. Keith Ellison is amazing on this stuff and he's got I think two or three staff on antitrust law state agencies have tiny offices but nobody talks about overpowers if I could lose. So it's like. There are these seeds of incredible power analysis people. And then there's a lot of leftists who think they talk about for power in practice organizing against it. The lawyer. Is there a lot of reimagining of antitrust law that needs to be done because of? Internet age because the markets have changed so much what what in what ways is antitrust law may be lagging behind reality. Service is a major debate in our drawing. Little Anti Monopoly.

"Even thought about that one I. I was so deeply embedded in every minute of it. And then just stopped. Looked like he was gonNA make it there for a minute but the. Disappointing. Wait I have I have about to have a moment? No I mean find I see you I don't Wanna I don't WanNA use. At the time I think one thought I. had at the time but it's a little too self serving or a movement serving is I don't think any dolphin depend on later roles. that like anxiety and the return to convertible. Was a part of. and. That isn't everything and I don't want to. I am not saying if about four like is there were no pandemic. Would want that's not clear like he's always going to shot right but. That was. and. You think it was it like sanders represented. It was too risky. Yes. At this moment they were so risk averse they wanted to return to normalcy and they thought that would eat biden. Yeah Yeah I. think that's that's part of it. Certainly not all what did you think about the meet the media coverage of the? Campaign. 'cause it was it was really mad. Amendment guys down. Is. I don't WanNa. Be? Why nebout? Line. Jesus safe-space. Seriously these are and desert journal. Solutions to serious problems. And the the framework was consistently like about outsider. Just, it's it's really really frustrating. To be inside. Yeah and and and I thought the stuff about Hammered for our genes two, thousand, three, two, thousand, four. Was the beginning of the director of online organizing and the hard question they do not want to do this things. People. Have meetings without staffers. There was the big debate because people say that would hurt. So we had this like ballet als in the campaign outlet where people live have meet ups it out staffers. Because they might go outside the talking points. And I thought that that we were doing is moving to a framework where if you have clear lines that actually the less interaction you have, the less the less people will be held responsible for Canada. Song. That didn't happen. and. And the other thing that was true. Then was that people in groups often say things that for candidates less than people on their own. There's just as a default, conservative. Aussie. CONSERVATIVISM IN UPS. Just. Because everybody start check each other like is this going to help our candidates? As ADEMA stick language tends to be much. Much, like navy really helpful and maybe generally shrimp. So I think that we should. Hold candidates responsible for their own. Behavior. But the treatment of outliers ender supporters. And when the real examples were shown. Outliers when you accept what exactly was said like the Bernie Borough, the talk Bernie stuff. Oh Yeah. I mean it's yeah. That was totally insufferable. It was bad science is bad. Yeah forwarding. Some. Disingenuous narrow. It was it was a fabricated narrative that then people. Yeah. It wasn't true and nobody ever condemned the stuff that happened to sanders, supporters of caller sanders, supporters who are women all the vitriol along that lobbed at them. Slash US was isolated isolated incidents whereas any other direction we're all part of a greater story that was never actually proven. Yeah. It was. Yeah. We're killing our just talking about they're doing they're doing it with mark. We read some of the really offensive things that were said that were literally policy critiques lobbed at supporters of of Kennedy. who were doing like for instance, they were doing a benefit of Broadway thing and the people the decide cyber bullying was I. I'm really a fan of yours I was I would love it. If you you reconsider your report like that was the that was the toxic violent language. So there's two things. One is there's a lot of toxic filing right and I've gotten everywhere and I. Don't love reliving. And that policy debates are not toxic. Yeah. Bradley, basic? Rules. This can become part of the standard political playbook. Now, in the Internet, age you can you. Can just it's been shown now, what Sandra isn't me now with Markie you that. If you want to change the subject, you can just tell some reporters that a letter saying that they have toxic supporters online. Suddenly that's a news story and say that you would never been able to do that it although I do it a little bit of team. It's also on its there's the like Nanno micro level, but then they're even on the policy level. There's the like how dare you critique this? This policy or position in fact, my worries that they're going to try to put Kamal in front of things as much as possible so that any criticism of Said, plan or position or policy will be like framed as sexist or end or racist I think that having Joe? Biden announced things it'll be harder for them to try to like stifle criticism that way. So I think we've that to look forward to but Yeah It's not much of A. A different nominee but I am. All inbreeding mine elect. Yeah. You. Know I really do think that. A lot worse and? And that that there is there was that sort of mealy heartbreaking moments in November? Two, thousand eight. Where.

There are a lot of contingencies and randomness and he said, you know in history to like the battle Gettysburg could have gone either way it wasn't preordained or you know he compared evolutions in the battle of Gettysburg. Anyway. Big Takeaway by the way from the. DNC. Is that you have no policy but you talk a lot about injustice and the you know the RNC, officially is not changing its policy, right? It's platform our policies pretty brilliant. Our platform is whatever trump's assistant. Doesn't. So that's great and then. They also trump is a pretty good. Convention hosts he naturalized about five people during the convention. Which I think was the first. and. Also you know for all the people who were saying that Bernie was too radical too much of a radical socialist. He would have been killed by trump and as as friends the show slash enemy of the show at least of Katie Helpers personal enemy to me Chuck Todd said you know the right is going to hammer and sickle you Bernie Sanders. Lo and behold the RNC hammered encircled. Biden Harris. Oh, it's less. You thought that this was a safe way to go. Because now trump isn't calling the democrats. A bunch of Socialists radicals who are going to define the police turns out he says that no matter what. The, the comedy of labeling. I know it gets my don't get my hopes up donald trump stock any cited about biden because when they first named Harris. Running mate. The trump people settled all these flyers and it was like they couldn't figure out what their line of attack. They settled on Kamala Harris or. Or Cameras radical. Day. Or so which is totally not who she is. Now it's not an yeah and the again, I think we've talked about this before it's weird because trump. I think he won in two thousand sixteen in part by understanding exactly who is opponent was. Yeah. Right, like he stressed constantly, the Hillary Clinton Jeb Bush were pretty much the same person right? Politically or or at least the same kind of liberal animal and. For them to continue to be. So tone deaf about who these candidates ours I think he's relying on her being a black woman from. Berkeley. Though I think he's like he is trying to play up that he's trying to trying to fear monger I think he I think he knows she's not that radical I think like phony is probably the his better zinger what he called her fake or phony Four twenty couple. Yeah. That's him.

"One of the most progressive leaders in Congress while we need to focus on beating trump is just saddening. Another woman wrote to Sarah Berets. I have been your biggest fans since I was about six years old your decision to support Joe Kennedy into partake in. This is profoundly disappointing I. Mean I don't even want to think about the PTSD, that these performers were subjected to. Which? Cari fire seeing I don't know if these guys are GONNA be able to recover. From these vicious toxic absolutely. Bro Ish. Dripping with testosterone, you know like like these people who love her Emmy Fire Stein. have been fans of his forever and they're these toxics.

Bro Ish. boorish behavior I don't know of anyone is going to be able to recover any of the performers. Yeah, I cannot. This is the type of thing that ruins people's lives, and this is why people don't come out of the closet as performers. Being performer, bashed and bullied. It's.

The campaigns to keep doing this because they know they can get a couple of days mileage minimum out of this kind of stuff journalists will bite on this. Now they love twitter news stories they love being able to delve into all this stuff. So Kennedy should he runs us like this underdog okay and and it's so pathetic. This is what his campaign said when the Boston Globe endorsed Marquis over him, they said if. You're one of the Globes disproportionately weight well off well, educated readers. The past few decades have been pretty good for you. The status quo has delivered, ed? Markey. Has has done just fine.

But obviously horrible and paralyze he's paralyzed, which is you know Who would have thought getting shot seven times in the back? Paralyzed some of them I guess the miracle is that he's alive but yeah, why right? At times in the back. In the annals of closeness misconduct shootings. It's not a terribly I number seven. But when you're that close, there've been incidents where there are fifty shots forty four shots, right? But aren't they usually far? I mean again are I think. Not necessarily that close we've got a Durban incidents for of finished firing and reloaded. when the within the distance of they could be touching the person being in like a hallway yeah. I mean I'm not I'm not. You know it's not like a competition I, do think it's different when you're literally and I'm not saying like the other ones in the hallway were. Okay. But there's something different about it when you're like. Right behind them, right you know what I mean. So before from groups Democrats. Republicans like it's weird. Isn't that terrible? There was a lot choose from. For Democrats talk this week at I just went for something that I thought was. It's getting to the point where it's so certain that. We gotta talk about this before it becomes an all out trend. Dan is not this would be have our are a different producer redone lead today read. Can we take a look at the story call a marquee pros? So here's here's the story in in the Boston Globe. This is does the Senate race between? Ed Markey and Joe Kennedy Basically. This is a a an exact repeat of the burn grow accusation. Except it's coming from Kennedy, this time at Marquee, Kennedy's people are. Demanding that Mark Marquee quote publicly and clearly denounce the hateful conduct and speed and speech of Marquee supporters. What can I say someone who's a marquee supporter? I would like to tell Joe Kennedy and his campaign to go fuck themselves. Yeah you can do that there I said it. Index story which is Kept him to cry what it says are markets toxic dangerous online orders fucking hate this they can't I'm trying not to be toxic. Basically what the Kennedy Campaign says is. We know that none of this is coming none of the online. A abuse and some of it apparently had to do with jokes about dead Kennedys mean come on there's A. Band called debt ran let gets. Death threat they're considering death row earlier there were some they're claiming that there are some threats a. Mixed in there but they're seeing up front that none of us was actually coming from the Marquis campaign but it's a result of the quote toxic online ecosystem that he fomented I mean I thought this was worth mentioning because this is this is now officially thing where. To get at or or to change the subject in a campaign. between people who can't disagree over substantive issues assist a talk about somebody saying something mean on twitter even if it doesn't nothing to do with the candidate. And journalists are very complicitous because. You know if you report the story at face value. Right you're you're kind of creating Goule around the candidate. Who supposedly has the toxic Bob It's it's completely a matter of characterization if you look at the reports about Sanders. Years it was about his toxic online following but that if you look at the Kyiv Stories. One after another talks about outgrew what a brilliant. Strategic engagement policy. She hasn't Blah Blah rank. and. It's it's just infuriating as he said, we saw this with the Bernie thing. and. As you said, it's when you can't critique the person on substance. So you have to make it about these like weird twitter only disputes and again it's totally selective like I'm a bit obsessed with this. I documented a lot of cases of this nobody says anything when it's done by supporters of the person you're supporting right to enroll. One says anything by have no one said anything about. Hillary Clinton supporter in twenty sixteen, they were to physical attacks based on the primary in two, thousand, sixteen, both committed by. Men Against by Hillary Man Against Sanders women and nobody cares about sexism and toxically somehow nobody talked about either one of those. So it's a totally disingenuous Mir occasionally. regurgitated by good faith people who don't know that they're just parodying talking points. And again, if you WanNa if you think and we are in a pandemic and you somehow think that this is the most important thing people being mean on twitter. But if you WANNA, make that your issue fine but you need to be condemning it no matter where it happens but I just want to give really quickly. An example of the toxic behavior that that the Kennedy Campaign alleged to have to deal with. Okay. So this is like the nerdy thing just reading at the show at Boston magazine there is an event It was a a star studded Broadway fundraiser that was going to happen for Joe Kennedy was going to be a zoom thing but it was shutdown okay. Because of toxic, it's six apparently according to the Kennedy Campaign Against the people who are participating in it right and here here are just some of the toxic. The Marquee Bros. Okay and everyone if your kids around and cover their ears, lock your doors all that stuff. So here's one of them ready. And these are from the supporters I guess who are writing to the performers in the star star studded. event. Hi Andrew Feldman I saw that you are participating Broadway for Joe Kennedy and I wanted to make sure you knew that the person that Kennedy is running against is actually the author of the green new deal and has been fighting for us for decades I'm happy to talk more in DM's. Okay. That's an example of toxicity. Here's another one writing. This is Harvey Fierstein another performer. Do you realize that Ed Markey supported gay and Lesbian Employment Nondiscrimination legislation in the in Massachusetts State. House in the late seventies seriously hoping that this is just an errand judgment because Ed has always been a progressive champion not just when it's fashionable, it gets worse can't really shake my disappointment about this harvey firestone I'm a huge fan. I'm so grateful for your work but lending your. Star power to help Kennedy Kennedy on seat..
"zephyr" Discussed on KTRH
"Bring on our guest. Zephyr Ali, who is senior director, petroleum supply chain products for Aspen Tech in Houston, and were also being joined by Ron Beck, Marketing strategy director for Aspen Tech. Gentlemen, Welcome to Enola Patch radio show. Thank you. Thank you, Ron. You are one of our favorites. You've been on this show many times, and obviously you handle a lot of the marketing for Aspen Tech. But Zephyr is new to the show and suffer. I'd like to give you an opportunity to introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell us a little bit about you What you're doing there in your background. How did you come to Aspen Tech? Sure. So I have been in the tree for over 25 years now. I have a background of chemical ingenuity. Organ gas is that I started back in 1997. I have done different kinds of roles. I was in a solution from something before I did research and development to a large extent with also one of the key architects of our bonding and elegant solution. And recently in 2010. I moved into product management and now I'm responsible for this tragedy in the vision. I have a personal evolved to better cater to this market. Sounds like a lot of responsibility and staying up to date on everything that's happening. It's so quickly. Aspen Tech is one of these high tech companies that are really helping find Efficiency for companies in the energy sector in the way of digitalization. I wantto talk a bit about some of the situations and problems that are occurring in an area of refinery, so everybody's very familiar with the rapid drop. In both product pricing and demand in February. We saw loss, of course, the price of their oil and then to make matters worse Cove it 19 came right behind it, and there's such uncertainty. And, of course, is trying to figure out how to recover as of today from both of these different Really bad negative impacts to our industry has really put plants in a place where they're trying to adjust to these new challenges if you will, and and how they're using technologies to adapt. To help them better recover in these different areas. Tell me a little about the plants and their specific situation. We talked a lot about energy sector. Let's move over a little bit in switch gears and talk about refineries. What their specific problems Yes. So finally, you know, I have been around for a long, long time and the primary purpose If it finally just notification of your users is that it takes the group from the old from the ground in under. The tech stuff that comes out heavy and then it breaks it down into parts that can be used for actually pumping our airlines the gasoline for our cars. Diesel for our trucks and unveil your cars and debunker field for our ships. So at the end of the day, you take something that's coming out of the ground and make something which is like we're useful. For the human population, and this has been the task for a very long time. The monsters used to be quite stable in the sense that there was a sudden demand an exciting including the man with the beard. And the price of the century, but not dramatically. What has happened over the last few years. We call it the environment. This is a term that has bean counter wine between time. Uncertain, complex and ambiguous on that Luca environment is only getting worse sense that the demand of it supplies just part of it. The price of the consequence of that always goes all over the place was well for a cost. So the refineries that would be making money today could be using the shirt tomorrow. And they need to be extremely a dime on this thing with resilient to cope with this dynamic market commission that can survive a long time. Rather Europe, mitt or downstream, meaning obviously refineries air going to fall in the latter part Technology and using it to some of these plants. Ron and I have had this discussion over lunch is, you know some of them are very old and they've been around for a very long time, and they're kind of clunky and the way that they're used to doing things. They've always done it this way and looking and seeing how Can they do things differently? Planners work today and they are at the center of these plants, and and they have the need to become more agile and faster in there reacting, so talk to me about these Planner's what's their specific role and and how can they become more efficient? Absolutely. So. This is actually a critical role in a refinery operations and they give you a little bag of honored that he does. So when you're trying to run the refinery, you need to come up with a plan on the plan, typically for the fourth time here. And it's always the changes if the assumptions change find a diffusion, trying with robust plan that can cope with some of the changes that have occurred in the future. So a planner. What decision Making is obviously, as you can imagine, in a market in a free market. You have a lot of feedstock office to to this shop by each of these feedstocks profit, different being a refinery in produce different kinds of first. That's an important point. Second point is that always the refinery has will have something strange in the foreseeable future. So probably accounts for that, And then you have a market that you're catering to the demands of the market. Social culture could be seasonal. So you know that gasoline on it really could be high consumption in the family was a person of interest. So what a pharmaceutically does it tries to figure out more earthy, often on way. Frog for hated by the best feedstock. What did you finally gave me a price? And the second, the most optimal way to operate injured Finally, 100. Finally, somebody's been pretty stuff like the product so that the product and then sell to the market that is changing, too. So at the end of the bargain line for the planet is to maximize that finally margin so all the decisions for photographs that he used to make sure that the generation plan Maxim. Why do you find the margin? That's a cute old. Got it? Well, you know, we're getting ready for a break. When we come back. I want to drill down a little bit more into how can these planners be more agile and efficient? But I also want to bring in engineers as well because they kind of.

Should Washington Break Up Big Tech?
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan, and this is intelligence squared us and we've we've just seen something historic happened digitally in the halls of Congress when the four CEO's of four, the biggest tech companies in the World Amazon and apple and facebook and Google were required to testify before Congress, and while there they were put in the position of having to defend their companies against claims that they've just become too big that they've become gigantic to the detriment of the general public that they are using their market power crush competition that they're driven by nothing but their own prophets that they're amassing huge amounts of data and that basically they're running afoul of antitrust laws. Some people are calling this big tex big tobacco moment, which is a callback to the nineteen ninety s when seven. CEOS of Big Tobacco companies all had to appear before Congress, and be accused of doing bad things to the public but is this fair in this case? Are these companies really doing bad things because of their size are they really too big and are you the consumer losing out because they've become big or are you actually benefiting because of the size of these firms? So we think in these questions, we have the makings of debate and that's what. We're going to do, but we're going to do it a little bit differently from our normal approach. Today, we're going to be hosting this conversation in a format that we call a to disagree, and that's where we streamline things a little bit. Go to the news we find the dividing lines, and then we bring you what we do best a debate in the form of a conversation between just two debaters not our usual to against to instead we're one on one and instead of having a resolution, we're really going with a question and the question this time is. Should Washington break up big tech should Washington break up big tech I'm here with two debaters who are GONNA be arguing yes or no to that question Zephyr teach out and Andrew McAfee. So I Zephyr you've debated with us before on stage and I just want to say welcome back to intelligence squared. So excited to be back on. Thank you for having me for such an important discussion. It's a pleasure and for folks who don't know you are a law professor, you're an activist. And as it happens, you came out with a book, this July, the title of which break them up recovering our freedom from big big tech and big money. So which side of the debater you're going to be on again today I definitely think we need to be breaking up these big tech behemoths and hence your book. Okay. Now arguing against your position arguing no on the. Question of whether Washington should break attack. I. WanNa Welcome Andrew McAfee Andrew we've we've been wanting to get you into one of our debates for a long time. We are delighted to have you joining us for this one and all it took was a global pandemic right. Thank you for having us. It's a pleasure and for folks who don't know you also are a bestselling author. You're a principal research scientist at MIT. You're also the CO founder and Co Director of the initiative on the digital economy. So once again, welcome to intelligence squared. So the way that this format will go we'll go in four rounds, the first round Each of the debaters will be making a brief opening remarks about their position on the the question before us and then We will have you know along and lengthy back and forth discussion. Towards. The end we're GONNA go to our third round, which will be where each gets to put a the toughest question they can to their opponent, and then a fourth round will be closing remarks and wrapping things up. So there's a lot to discuss a lot to argue here and we're GONNA start with our opening rounds. That's where each get two minutes to make the case in their position on the question would should Washington break-up big tech? So our first debater will teach out who will be arguing? Yes. On the question of whether Washington, should break up big tax Zephyr. The floor is yours. We are in a moment of a genuine crisis and our democracy, and so I want to start with some first principles. The principles of equality and freedom. Central Job of democracy and government. is to. INSERVICE of those goals, protecting citizens from any group or any person wielding too much power from abuses of excessive private power from private governor Mench basically arising out of the corporate form Anti monopoly antitrust is a deep and powerful American tradition was at the heart of the American revolution. Think about the tea party protests the great anti monopolist of our country include ebd boys who saw. How monopoly power was used to crush lack political power after the civil war and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who is arguably the greatest trust buster this country's ever seen and nineteen forty to nine eighty. We lead the world anti monopoly using antitrust campaign finance laws, public utility regulation, labor laws, and other tools to ensure that no private company had too much power but since nineteen eighty, when Reagan, tour down. Anti monopoly laws and their spirits. Democrats, and Republicans alike have failed and instead embraced a policy of radical concentration and the result is the world we live in now.
Amtraks Sale on Sleeper Cars: COVID-19 Travel Solution?
"I love traveling by train. The sounds the scenery long distance train travel is almost undeniably romantic and yet. I almost always opt for airplanes in normal times. Train travel is just too time consuming for me and most average travelers, but of course we're not in normal times, and that's giving Amtrak and advantage over plane travel that it hasn't had in more than seventy years so rights Robert Clara and editor at Ad Week Clara unearthed a seventy four year old report produced by the Association of American railroads in a desperate bid to compete with convenience of flying. The report touted the solitude and comfort of the sleeping car over time of course that promotion failed. Until perhaps now once again in a new century for a new reason, Amtrak is making that same argument last week Amtrak, a two for one promotion, for its Roumat's tiny private compartments whose seats convert to upper and lower sleeping berths at night. Buy One ticket for a trip down the east coast or from Chicago to Los. Angeles and your companion can share your cozy for by seven foot space for free. Not Surprisingly Amtrak is promoting the affordable room at a great solution to cabin fever by staying isolated in your tiny train compartment. You can see the country without being pressed up against the flying masses. The ticket price includes linens, towels and meals which you can eat in the dining car. For! True social distancing have them delivered to your room at ticket. Holders can venture out into a big window observation lounge lounges at train stations, but must wear masks, and naturally Amtrak has stepped up its sanitizing procedures to tickets are available on many different lines like the California Zephyr which travels from the West Coast through the rocky mountains on its way to Chicago or take a different route out of Chicago, and travelled through Memphis on the way to the big easy on the city of New Orleans line. Comes no surprise that airlines are suffering because of covid nineteen with most people staying home, so to is Amtrak. The organization received a Billion Dollars of federal cares act funding to keep employees on the payroll through the end of September according to USA Today but on July Sixth Amtrak reduced the frequency of many lines and last month it warned employees of more doom and. And Gloom in October, it plans to cut service even more and Shrink the workforce by twenty percent. The company says it will cut staff through voluntary buyouts, early retirements and layoffs, if necessary. According to USA Today more than thirty, two million passengers climbed aboard an Amtrak Train and twenty nineteen, the paper reported, but Amtrak predicts it'll have half that ridership in twenty twenty one. Trying to boost sales, Amtrak is also cut many other ticket prices to the bone including tickets for the a Selah, it's fastest train on the ACELA. It'll cost you only sixty to seventy bucks to speed from Boston to new. York to Washington DC less than half the usual prize that deals good through the middle of September, according to ask traveler.
"Welcome to new challenges remaining I am. Ben Rothenberg I'm lead on this show to be joined by Patrick Moore. The founder of the Motagua Academy coach of Serena Williams and more recently, the creator of the ultimate tennis showdown UTSA, which is one of the events springing up during this crooner virus stoppage that continues on the tours, so Patrick is here to talk about his new ups products, but also a couple other things large more largely in the sport in general to talk about emotion, antennas change in tennis room for growth in tennis as well as some of the more recent news around proposals around the US Open where limit players only having one entourage member with them onsite per player, and also how his charged Serena Williams is handling this stoppage in tour. Among other things hope you enjoy this. I've wanted to have patrick on for a long time so I'm glad to get him today here. He is help you enjoy. Very said V joined here by Patrick more talk to talk about the ultimate tennis showdown ups which you've started up. Thanks for being here for civil and I'm curious. Just this idea you had for. UTSA is this something that you had an idea for before? Or is this purely been sort of a Brainchild of this of the stop time on on tour. is both. I've been thinking about it for a long time because I aware that the average age of the fan of tennis is getting older where at sixty one years old now and it's getting older every year so. This sense, quite a lot of messages to us the first mets. A message is that. The core fans of tennis have very loyal to tennis. The started to love is probably in the seventies and eighties steel here for two years old fifty years afterwards shows that. Tennis is very addictive. It's it's a great sport, so we keep our fence, but it says also that we're not renewing our fund base so we not getting New People on board especially not. Not many young people so I thought that Dennis needed something else I'm not saying that. The ATP W have to change and the. Grand Slam something. He's great also to tradition I think they're also doing a good job at. Making their fence happy because they're still here for fifty years after, but I think it's important also to get New People on board to To to to grow the fan base of tennis, and especially to to renew its so I think for that. We need a second second league. That is more modern. That is different that proposes A. Product you can do. It doesn't sound good for sport, but it is a product because it's. Not Product a product that. That is more that. Faster more dynamic, more interactive, more modern. And that's what's better. The younger generations already interested in marketing for that can see you guys having a lot of fun with this or just taking it I want to say less seriously, but you know the the the nicknames for players that come out like. The Greek God and you know we the French flair and Matteo. Bertini the hammer like these are not things that you would have seen Wimbledon do. Had this been normal tour year right now and so I. I guess I'm curious. You're somebody who I think you know from seeing your. Thoughts on different things and you're somebody who gets thanks tennis should be. Has Room to be a lot looser, right? A lot less tied to tradition into being serious all the time potentially Zephyr. Yes but I'm a tennis fan since four years old. I gave everything I had for tennis and an often is also the way it is. So I understand that the core fans don't want change. I think steal the could be some slight changes, but. But. Basically I like tennis. The way it is is just that We don't take ourselves seriously. We WanNA. Have Fun we WANNA. Enjoy won't for me. sports is has to be all these. It has to be fun. It has to be emotional. It has to be interactive and especially in our world in twenty twenty, the will change so much and the way consumers. Watch sports and video in general. Has Changed so much in the last years I think it's important to propose a different way to Turkistan is for that reason. If we want to get you, get you offense on board. That's the only way and we have to consider also that the offer is so much bigger than what he what it used to be. The is now you have so many different sports. You have gaming. Older Serres. There are so many different. Options, so if your product is slow complicated or you need to invest three hours, minimum or two and a half hours. You have no chance to get the young people so I. Think it's very complimentary. I think both leaks can really live will next to each other and feed each other. Actually
A Return To Simplicity...
"Everyone who has awesome. So I'm in the middle of recording the audio books which as painful as writing a book is recording. An audio book might be more painful It is really hard to like steak cited your energy levels up in like an all these things while you're reading three ninety thousand were books which is really stupid that I look at it that way. It's funny the guys doing the audio engineering stuff. He's like. Some people read like one audiobook in their lifetime but nobody reads three in a week. So that's where we are right now and it's funny as we were driving here today have so tired and I were talking about starving artists Mike Panel. I'm not a starving artist. I'm just tired artist so I think I think when you first get started you're starving artists trying to figure out how in the world actually make money and then eventually figure that out and then you're just tired artist because you can't keep up with the all the stuff that's happening and all of the The opportunities in the things that you start creating insert figuring out your voice so Anyway as I was going today through the I'm about halfway through Mexico pays two hundred and fourteen in the The expert or the dotcom secrets book. I started expert. Sorry I started reading traffic secrets I because that one is next book or selling them going back and read the dotcom secrets and behalf that right now. So that's where I'm in the process halfway through all three bucks and I was reading kind of fun because you forget about these lessons that I wrote the the dotcom secrets book six years ago and kind of forget about some of the lessons. One of the ones that got me really excited as I was reading as. Oh my gosh like I talked about this. I did it for a while. Have been consistent with it. Was this concept of daily seinfeld emails and it's interesting because I think so many times. We're we We see here. We're trying to figure out. Okay what's the what's the what's what am I going to say. What's IT GONNA look like freak out and we get so caught up in like the? They got the right message that we have two times. Don't even publish anything. It was interesting at fucking live behind the scenes. I was sitting there is after Zephyr Garrett White spoke on stage me him and todd. We're backstage talking about stuff and talk about funnels complexity and it was funny because Garett head temporarily moved his email stuff to some other provider away from action over to To entrepreneur I think and And we can ask. Why do that? He said well we did it because we wanted all these things that actually do and he started talking about all the features and the things. He wanted to add a ton of complexity to to his office better sequences. And I wouldn't you move it over a year Mike. How's how's it going and he's like well like nothing's working like we. We haven't done it yet and todd starts laughing. That's the problem. Everyone has sit down. They wanted these insanely complex funnels and funnels and messaging and sequences is. We spend months mapping other things where they never actually get anything done most. Never actually go live looking. They want then shiny whistle. They want the the the you know. The the hack the technique the thing that the all the millions of features but the reality is the reason why people been successful click funnels so far is because it's simple right you can't build a funnel eight thousand variations like you build very linear like five page funnels in a page funnels and seeing things. That are very very simple right. Is We force people to like have simplicity and then because of that those people have success whereas other platforms like give you unlimited complexity ability. Jake Oh my gosh is amazing. I can do a billion things but then because you have so much complexity you never do anything and we have the same thing. We were We were looking at all. The different segments decided. Click funnels right. There's like people who who who started trial but in the cancel people who started trying to stick for month and they leave people who fill in step one of the order form and then they leave people who have been on for all these different segments of quick funnels users and so Almost a year ago we sat down said okay. We want to write different different messaging segments for each of these lists right so if somebody is on a positive cuts the sequence. We'RE GONNA use to get them. To Re upgrade their counts of is we sat and we mapped out like I think like nine or ten different segments and always email sequences right here. We're GONNA do that because it was so big and so complex. We never did and fast forward six months later. We had an funnel marketing retreat. We sat down and said Okay House those things going right where we still have done them like why not like woes too complex. We said okay. This dude against Mapfumo out again went back to the drawing board and last six months. We still have to him. So then we went. Hired this team to enforce because we can't even get these out the door hire somebody else to do a forest right so higher than I than us they map out the same thing we mapped out two hundred times and then they start saying well for email and you'd be able to split testing those in different headlines and accidents and do this yes and they were trying to get us to recode actually next Adam split testing all these things and finally months in. Todd's like we don't even have an email yet like little IMOs to split. Like what are we? Just make this simple and just put them in and just do it like just stop trying to make everything so complex. Just use it the way supposed to be built in so we did. We had them write emails. We plugged them in. And there's those split testings or nothing but guess what emails going out. Oh my gosh year. In two months later we finally have the thing out and I think that so many times. We get so complex things. I look at in dotcom secrets book. You know six years ago. I wrote this book. Initially and the strategy is so simple. Somebody joined your list. Take them on a soap opera sequence to build a relationship with you when they finish that sequence they drop into a broadcast. We daily broadcasts telling stories about what's happening in your current life right now and tie the story somehow back into your into your Endeavors you're selling and that's it. It's simply wake up every morning and that's it are so my team this last week and said you know if if if. I look at all the things I do in a day right I. I'm being the CEO. And I'm writing books and I'm creating content and I'm tweeting in videoing and instagram me. And all the things right. There's a million things I'm doing every single. All these things are critical. If you look at like what's the one thing that I can do everything that actually makes the most amount of money for me in the company. It'd be send out a daily seinfeld email. Email a million plus people a message to get some reminded about why they should use. Click funnels Builds a relationship with me. That's there's nothing more valuable not yet. I haven't done consistently for Click finals so it's been five plus years since I've done the one thing that would probably be the most profitable thing they could possibly do. And the reason why is because we keep trying to build up all this complexity in our sequences and they if somebody's this and then we're in the value-added moved they go from here to here and like all this stuff and we've been talking about it for years literally years and none of the things are live yet And so this is my commitment to myself to go back to simplicity. It's a commitment that Garrett at liking live after we talked about this he said I'm calling my guys up all my guys who've been begging me for all these insane features that would move everything on our platform over to and now nothing's happening we're going back to simplicity removing everything back when focus on simplicity. So guarantee that commitment to me making the commitment to to you into my team and everybody we're going back to simplicity and so my message for you today. Is that stop focusing on the complexity complexity keeps you from actually finishing the project ever and this is not just in business. It's business but it's also turn all aspects of life right in your in your relationships in your family life in your Just all the things we're doing I think a lot of times we get to these the super complex things I think about spiritually to have I know I if I woke up every morning read the Scriptures and that was my number one. That's the most important thing I could do. My life would be a lot better but instead I these complexities of all the things I gotta do to try to like you get closer to God. It'd be more spirit. Whatever it is that are so complex that keeps you from ever doing it. What's the simple thing? What's the very simple you can do? That actually has the biggest impact in your life and start thinking about it in all different areas of life in your personal life and your relationship in your business your marketing like whatever the thing is if you watered down and only done one thing each day would be the most vital most valuable most important thing and then just do that and then needs to take the rest today off. I don't know I don't pen you or then do the second thing after that. Then take the rest of the day off but anyway hold the help somebody out there again. Complexity is the killer of US having success in so simplify things. I promise you I promise you. Things will be better for yourself. Hope to help say she has all listening.
Well, this is new: Price cuts on Bay Area homes are surging
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Well, this is new price cuts on bay area homes are surging by Kathleen Pender. They're not exactly doorbuster deals, but bay area home sellers are cutting their asking prices at the highest rating years October is typically a big month for price reductions as sellers try to close deals before the market slows way down between thanksgiving and early February. But the number and percentage of homes with a price cut surge last month to their highest level for the month of October since at least twenty twelve in the bay area and twenty eleven statewide the jump in price cuts, which hit every bay area county is another side that after years of stratospheric increases prices are leveling off and buyers gaining a little more power in what had been a strong sellers market price cuts are a leading indicator because they're reflected immediately said Patrick Carlisle, the chief Mark. Analyst with a compass real estate brokerage although bay area home prices are still going up on a yearly basis home sales median prices and days on the market are considered lagging indicators because it can take a month or longer for deals to close in San Francisco. The number of homes with a price cut in October nearly doubled to two hundred thirty eight from one hundred twenty four last October, according to data from real tour dot com that's nothing compared to Santa Clara county where the number of price cuts rose to eight hundred eighteen last month more than six times last year's number Santa Clara county had been one of the nation's hottest markets this year and the bay area's price appreciation leader until September. Clearly, there's a market shift said rich Bennett, a zephyr agent in San Francisco, he just cut the price on an eighteen hundred thirty two square foot Victorian condo in popular Hayes valley by one hundred thousand dollars. He listed the. Page street home in mid October at just under one point seven million, which was realistic considering it has three bedrooms parking and a laundry porch and is quote, absolutely adorable. He said, but the buyers didn't come in October. We saw more inventory come on the market the economics of the bay area haven't really changed and it said, but if you don't have people beating down your door after two to three weeks, it's time to consider a price change. He has another listing right around the corner, a one bedroom single family home on lily street that he listed two weeks ago at one point one two five million dollars within a week.

Karen, FANG said she listed a house near Stanford University on a one and a half acre lot with a ton of deferred maintenance for four point one million dollars in mid August since then the average rate on a thirty year fixed rate mortgage has risen from three point five percent who almost four percent the cost of building materials, which the home would need has also gone up after reducing the price to three point five million the Palo Alto property closed October thirtieth for three point eighteen million.

He listed the nineteen hundred ninety square foot house for about one point seventy five million in mid June. But within ten days the number of listings in San Mateo around that price jumped to nine from two had he listed it in may, it would have had lots of offers.

Meanwhile, sometimes have to be convinced that a price reduction doesn't mean there's something wrong with the house said Paul kitchen, a compass agent in San Francisco, there are a couple of places that came on the market that were seemingly reasonably priced. He said, but buyers expect to pay ten to fifteen percent over asking we say, let's put in an offer at asking we have to convince them. There's nothing wrong with the property kitchen has a client who offered the asking price on a home that had a price reduction, and it was accepted even though there were contingencies.

He said agents would price ten to twenty percent below with the seller would accept hoping to get five ten or twenty offers and drive the price way beyond reason. Now when a home doesn't sell within a few weeks, the agent may increase the price. So as not to put sellers in the uncomfortable, but not illegal position of having to reject a full price offer that was lower than what they would accept.

Zephyr, Valiant's plus size, geek super hero is a must read
"I don't think valiant comics gets the positive praise at it deserves several years ago. I was listening to the goal kicker podcast by Carl Smith, and he was talking about the rebooting of rye from valiant as the right comic. He couldn't say enough good things about it. And I thought, what the heck, I'll check it out. I was pleasantly surprised at the fantastic art, the mazing storytelling that they did then proceeded to read their superhero team titles called unity, which the lead which led to the Jack title that they print us. Well, last, but not least I ran into faith which Carl had mentioned as well. I just never got around to her title until a few weeks ago on a side note or side tangent, whatever you wanna call it. I got a mention. I've purposely for the most part of did most marvel and DC titles. I guess you could say it's my way of rebellion against the popularity of both publishers. Yeah, I'm that kind of rebel, right? But anyway, I. Not that in never read them. It's just not as much as I've read into the independence like valiant and image anyway, back to the story faith, Jim shooter and David Latham created faith. Herbert codename zephyr in nineteen Ninety-two. She's a SCI fi and comic book nerd which leads her to Dopp more traditional superhero characteristics that her friends such as secret identities and super villains. She's a huge fan of doctor who she's a legit fan girl who creates listed goals and post cat videos by day while fighting crime by night. Physically faith isn't your stereotypical female hero. What I mean is she's not a size zero with a large bus line that most artists in the comic book industry tend to adopt. I know that does sound a little bit crude, but come on guys. Let's face it. Comic artists do get a little carried away when it comes to the female form in comics. I like the fact that the creators faith. Made her more realistic. She's one of us. She's a nerd girl who doesn't look like how society wants a young woman to look. She's not super skinny. She's not into being popular in pretty. She just wants to enjoy her nerdy stuff and be left alone. And by the way she uses her powers for good. In fact, many storylines she questions the motives of the other heroes because she doesn't want to inadvertently hurt somebody else. She has an innocence about her and that's why she's a breath of fresh air. She's relatable trying to balance a job, a boyfriend and catching the latest episode of doctor who since her character is innocent, it's nice to read a more lighthearted book. Maybe you can relate when you're reading more dark books. Does it affect your mood? I know I can get that way. I have to realize when it's
