Putin Says Russia Has Approved 'World First' COVID-19 Vaccine. but Questions Over Its Safety Remain
"Breaking overnight Russian president. Vladimir Putin said that the first Russian produce vaccine for COVID. Nineteen has received regulatory approval from the country's Health Ministry the vaccine was developed by Moscow's Galilea Institute. Putin. said. It forms stable immunity and passes all necessary safety checks putting also said, one of his daughters has actually received that vaccine Brian this news about Putin and this potential vaccine is huge but I think we do need to take it with a grain of salt. Well, trying to make sense of it, Becky, good, morning Wolf Becky as well. I mean trying to make sense of it. You have what you think are the markets sort of key points, right? Trillions of dollars in stimulus potential payroll tax cuts, all the market themes that we've all been talking about on CNBC all day long powering the markets higher seven days in a row you wake up at whatever four o'clock in the morning and Russia says, Oh, by the way, we have a working vaccine it's been approved by our own institute and I gave it to my daughter says Vladimir Putin so it is a huge developing story and I think. Guys it really whether or not you believe it or not, and there's GonNa be a lot of scientists that want to see the data. What is this vaccine? What is it based on? How many doses are available? How much does it cost as the world get it either way the market did move a little. We were up before the headlines crossed, but it did move a little on this news and I think Becky it does call into question. What happens on the day and whether that day is today or not the day the world gets a working vaccine. What happens? What do we do? Do we know? I, guess drink some vodka do we go out and street down the street I have no idea you know I might look here. Here's what I. Here's how I kind of look at this news just from what we've been hearing in the last several months from experts. There is a huge debate here in the United States taking place about whether these potential vaccine candidates should be fast-tracked even more and brought directly to the public before it. Goes through the extensive as one face to face three testing the phase three testing that you would normally see it's very high bar. They want to make sure that that not only is it safe for people to take. But also that there is efficacy remember last week we heard from the Dr Anthony. FAUCI that there's a a real risk that you are not going to see something that has ninety percent or north in terms of its effectiveness. The FDA is now looking at fifty percent as the floor. If they can get fifty percent effectiveness, they would think that that is great. Sixty, seventy, five percent even better. But you probably not talking about a vaccine where you have ninety three percent effectiveness with the measles shot. My guess is that the Russians have taken a candidate and fast forward it without doing a lot of those types of extensive studies that you're going to see on candidates vaccine candidates here in the united. States and there's a big debate about that. There are people here in the United States are pushing for us to do the very same thing but if you talk to. Some of the more cautious experts, some of the people who look at this they say, no, we do this for a reason it would be disastrous if you approved vaccine and then it turned out it either wasn't safe or that it didn't work very well but people would lose faith in vaccination programs. It's difficult enough to get people to accept vaccinations and do this, and there are more people here and the United States who are anti factors at this point who are raising questions about whether they'd even take it but there's a real reason that you go through these extensive steps and try to make these things positive now again. Totally, a guess, but I don't know how they would have had time to do all the testing that that we are making sure everyone of the vaccination candidates here in the United States has gone through and that's just the safety question Becky I mean look at the day we've got so far from all of the US in European trials. If you could put safety aside has any of them showed yet enough effectiveness in treating this forest enough antibodies antigens or whatever it is they're trying to create. I'm not sure where even quite there yet. Anyway on some of the data points and to that point whether it's a safety concern or. Effectiveness concerned with the Russian vaccine I doubt will get the daytime. You put the news on twitter whatever you WANNA call it and there's a group of people that just don't want to believe anything. They don't want any good news is that people are just bad I don't know why that is like Oh, well, it's not real or it's Russia must be faked maybe it is fake who knows there's a lot of candidates out there not just on the vaccine side but on the antibody side, the treatment cyber general and other things we could have real candidates by September by the way September is next month. Let me give you a few reasons to be optimistic. The are one the reproduction rate has held fairly steady. There are community spreads parts of America, but overall fairly steady. The question I've got is this we're starting to get some indications that Americans maybe closer to so-called hurt immunity than we think because t cell reproduction rates have seen higher in some communities ironically corona queens a few weeks ago or a month ago they found twenty five percent of the population had developed t-cells or anybody's and twenty five percent was not ill indicating that perhaps there is a greater capacity for amazing bodies to generate these t cells and these antibodies than we think in other. Words guys. There's a lot of terrible news out there and a lot of families are suffering but the market I think have looked at the fact that we had nine, hundred, sixty, eight, sixty, million people got avian flu, the Hong Kong flu and Nineteen Sixty eight off and fifty thousand or so Americans ended up dying from that about two hundred thousand in today's numbers no vaccine was ever created for that. You can debate whether or not. We have a vaccine it's still exist in some form. The point is I think the market is at least looked out a year and said life will hopefully be. Much, different and maybe much more normal than it is right now
Potential Kodak deal on hold until "allegations are cleared"
"For watching shares of Kodak this morning down by forty, five percent in pre-market trading. This on news of potential deal for government loan to help make ingredients for generic drugs is being put on hold in a tweet late Friday the International Development Finance Corporation a US government agency says the recent allegations of insider trading re serious concerns and the deal will not proceed until they are cleared the SEC is reportedly in the early stages of probe in Kodak said, Friday. It is conducting an internal review. Becky. You guys have been all over this. You had the the gym continente on Squawk shortly after the loan was awarded. In Joe I remember pointedly asked him about the unusual. Stock activity and the day just before this deal was announced on Monday one, point six, four, eight, million shares. And then Tuesday the news came out. How do you account for that James? Any idea whether whether someone had wind this I? Mean, we didn't see the move in the stock until Tuesday but that that is so far away at a multiple of the average daily volume over over the last. You know over a long period of time and he idea whether this got out. This is pretty kept secret. Obviously, we read better to the last day basically so I could tell you what A. Week. Later, we find out that he was also ordering. Stock option grant the day before as well. So certainly, a lot of eyebrows being raised here. Yeah. You we watched it run up and we're kind of watching it unwind right now as this comes through There were people who were waiting for the SEC to do an investigation. You kind of knew it was going to be coming and and now the question is what happens to the contract itself as a
What We Know About Trump's New 'Executive Orders'
"As of this weekend, the United States has surpassed five million cases of covid nineteen. Roughly one quarter of all infections reported across the world. It took just the last six weeks for US Cova cases to double the growth of new cases in the US appears to have leveled off at an average of fifty four thousand. Over the last week, more than one, hundred, sixty, two, thousand. Americans. Have died in the pandemic markets and lawmakers aren't sure what to make of president trump's controversial step on Saturday of issuing four. Orders in an attempt to provide economic relief to Americans. This came after stimulus negotiations and Congress ground to a halt leaving many whose livelihoods have been up ended by the coronavirus in limbo. Here's Becky quick. Amo Java's here. He joins us with more on this and there are so many questions on this. I was actually on the phone with the producers yesterday begging to have you on this morning to walk us through this because even after going through hours of kind of trying to figure out what was happening, I have to say I'm still confused yet. Look it is. Is Confusing and the reason, becky. It's confusing because the president really only has limited authority here without legislation from Congress. There's not that much he can do and he's right up to the edge here in do in taking all these actions. In fact, you've heard Democrats complain over the weekend that what the president signed and is Bedminster Golf Club on Saturday was actually over the line and illegal and unconstitutional. Let's walk through what he did first, and then we'll talk about what the reaction is. What he did was a series of executive orders including this payroll tax pause. In which he's going to defer collection of the payroll taxes that starts September first runs through the end of the year. But people would have to pay the payroll taxes at the end of the deferral period. If the law is not changed and it doesn't look like the law is going to be changed at least under this congressional layout right now. So the president is simply hoping here that there'll be a new congress, he'll be reelected, and he'll be able to pass a law making that deferral permanent, but for employers and employees trying. Trying to figure that all out which way do you bet on? That is a real open question. The other one is rental, help the president not able to extend the eviction moratorium, but he is directing federal agencies to find ways to go out and help renters. So we'll see where the federal government can come up. They come up with their and then on the unemployment insurance, it's four hundred dollars in bonus unemployment. Remember that would replace the six hundred dollars a week that people have been getting under. The cares act this is. Money coming from the Homeland Security's disaster, Relief Fund and the Federal Government is going to pay seventy five percent of this under the president's plan. The states will be responsible for twenty, five percent of it, and you've already heard some complaints from the states that they simply don't. The money to be able to do that, and so you heard from Democrats over the weekend that this is entirely unworkable. Here's Chuck Schumer. Unfortunately, the president's executive orders described in one word could be paltry in three words, unworkable week and far too narrow. The event at the country club is just what trump does a big show, but it doesn't do anything it as the American people look at these executive orders. They'll see they don't come close to doing the job. Meanwhile, you had Treasury Secretary Mnuchin on television over the weekend as well. He explained exactly what the president hopes happens here with this payroll tax deferral, here's what he said. We've been told by the states. They can get this up and running immediately, and I would say if the Democrats want to challenge in court and hold up unemployment benefits to those hard working Americans that are out of a job because of Covid, they're going to have a lot of explaining to do. So, Becky, essentially a dare there from the treasury secretary saying look go ahead. Sue Us if you want to be the political party that suing to stop unemployment checks going to unemployed people ahead of an election, go ahead and do that, and that's sort of where we are. It's a real standoff here in Washington. Not Clear when negotiations can resume. We're told that there wasn't really any meaningful contact between Democratic leaders and the White House over the weekend and we'll see what money brings. Hey. Let's start. There's GonNa be a bunch of questions of all three of US want to ask coming out of this. But let let's start just with the very basics. If the Democrats challenge, any portion of this, does that mean they challenge all of it because I could see them saying, okay. We want to challenge the idea of a payroll tax holiday or relief. At this point, but we don't want to stop the checks from going out. Right, I mean, you could there are three different executive memoranda here and executive order. So you could do a lawsuit targets specific federal action that's contemplated by the president here So you don't have to challenge the whole thing. If you're the Democrat, you can go after a bits and pieces. The question is politically, what's the strategy on Ansi Pelosi over the weekend arguing that this was both unconstitutional unconstitutional and also too little. If it's unconstitutional than the Democrats. Really are putting themselves in a position where they they sort of morally a righteously would need to suit to block it, but also if it does provide any little bit of help, they don't want to be in position of being the ones to take that away. We keep saying it's four hundred dollars in unemployment. It's really three hundred dollars that's federal coming from the federal government, and they're saying the states could go ahead and pick up an extra hundred dollars, but we should probably re characterize it as three hundred dollars coming from the federal. Government. Yeah. It's three hundred dollars on the federal government and the states would pay one hundred and you already heard a lot of governors around the country saying Whoa? Wait a second our budgets have been so badly hit that we can't even pay for the services that we're providing right now. Let alone and additional unemployment benefit at simply not possible. We're not going to be able to do it You know Mnuchin and others argued that the states will be able to find a way to do that. And we'll see what governor say this morning as they get into their offices and try to figure this thing out.

The Trifecta: Hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue and leaky gut
"On today's episode. We're going to be digging deep into some nutrition science about thyroid disease specifically about hypothyroidism the adrenals leaky gut, and it's going to be with Dr Becky Campbell. So surprise, this episode is actually an old episode that aired almost two years ago. So a lot of you new listeners around here. Hey, love Ya probably haven't heard this one yet, and it is one of my favorites that I have done plus it's so packed with information that I figured it's time to bring this one up again. So Dr Becky Campbell is our guest today and she is a functional medicine practitioner who is sharing her personal health journey through sickness with conventional medicine to finally finding health with functional medicine. So we are diving into the causes of thyroid dysfunction and why we need to go so much more beyond food for true healing from stress management to heal healing gut and liver issues. Other hormonal imbalances addressing heavy metal toxicity or parasites analyst goes onto a lot of other things to disclaimer here Dr Campbell is talking about a specific. Dietary. Protocol four thyroid disease. This is one of those circumstances where it may be helpful to remove certain foods for healing if you have a diagnosis of thyroid disease or hypothyroid or hypothyroid however, if you have any history of disordered eating chronic dieting morality around foods getting stuck in the good versus bad yes I know who's or an eating disorder and a diagnosis like thyroid disease, you should one hundred percent pretty please definitely work with a practitioner who specializes in thyroid conditions and a non died approach to healing to make. Sure, you don't fall back into old patterns getting into the details a little bit. We're going to talk about the multiple functions of the thyroid gland, which goes way beyond metabolism the difference between Hypo hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto's the connection between leaky gut thyroid issues, low stomach acid, and adrenal fatigue, plus the most important foods and nutrients to include to support thyroid health and why should we be eating gorgeous genyk officials if we have thyroid issues and then what labs to ask your doctor for if you suspect, you have fiery issues. I would love for you to start by talking about your personal health journey and introduce yourself and how you got where you are today. So while I got to learning about functional medicine like most functional medicine practitioners I think by being sick myself. And so I, you know I never really felt great. You know even as a kid I never felt i. think is good as the other kids around me did but when I was in my early twenties I was in college I felt really bad and this was different than my normal not feeling great I knew something was wrong and no one really had any answers for man went to so many doctors and you know, of course, they directed me to five different doctors depending on which body part on. and. You know they just ran such limited labs or they were looking for like pathologically. So you know for my stomach loading, they would do like a dusk opinion and say, Oh, you're fine. You know or they'll do a colonoscopy for some people and if there's no. Raging issue there than then you're fine. So. I kind of went on like that for a while and just started getting worse than I I was increasing my exercise and I was actually noticing that was making me gain more weight which have kind of talked about on some articles and stuff that I've done with the relation to the cortisol issues in weight gain. but. Just getting really frustrated feeling kind of hopeless and like no one was listening to me and then I found functional medicine and I was living in Atlanta at the time and I found this big center that did all they Davis Functional Medicine and I it was amazing. I was so happy you know I had I think like an hour consultation the first time which was crazy 'cause no game different and yeah. Yeah. So you know they found I had a issue and they did that by doing much more thorough lab testing than. than. They were doing in the conventional medicine model plus they were using different lab ranges, which is such a big part of this. and. Then not only did they find out that I had fired issue but they started looking for what was causing it or what was contributing to May symptoms. So after working with functional, Medicine Practitioner for was you know a few months I mean right away I started to feel better but it took about a year and then even as a practitioner I've learned more things and tested myself rather things and found there was other things I was struggling with but you know overall the point being is that there was. You know the conventional medical model, which was me looking fine to them, and then the functional medicine model, which is I found all of these issues and had a work on them right exactly
Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday
"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.
COVID-19 testing and contact tracing key for safely reopening schools, two new studies suggest
"Some classrooms begin to open the US Dr Anthony Fauci said today that schools should proceed with caution and make safety a priority down. She also said that students need the psychological nutritional benefits and pretending in person classes although acknowledges that parents have to quote. Dramatically modified their work schedule this as we touched on earlier, two new studies suggesting scaled up testing and contact tracing of those who test positive being key factors in any school reopening. To professionals who are facing these issues in different dates. Becky stone is the director of Alcoa City schools in Tennessee and Brian Woods Superintendent of the northside independent school district in San Antonio Texas, appreciate both of you for for being here tonight Becky the for the first day back to school in your area. Tennessee was July twenty second week and a half ago you. I know you've had four confirmed coronavirus cases. You expect so many. So soon and and how you responded that how does that change thing? Is. When we decided that we were going to open wing knew that we would have cases We unfortunately didn't go into it thinking that. No one was going to get sick because lots goes on those folks are going to get sick if they're in school or not but the first one we had was Just right. After we opened school and we met together and as attain. We did our contact tracing and because I felt like we had some really good protocols in place we really didn't the exposure was very limited and the second time it happened was last week and again I feel like because of the protocols we have in place in the safeguards there was very little exposure Interesting that that you're doing your own contact trae saying as a school That's a that's obviously a smart thing to do given the problems we're seeing with contract tracing on kind of you know on the large scale. Bryan Texas you're facing a different timelines. Schools haven't opened yet in your district, but once they do they'll be required to have full person learning after the first eight weeks. I correct me if I'm wrong on that do you think that timeline will allow you to keep your students and teachers say It's a good question and it's one that I hope we don't have to contemplate obviously our preferences not to have a a set timeline but rather to allow a local school leaders in elected boards of trustees to make decisions about what safe for their students in their staff. So a it is concerning to us that we have kind of an arbitrary time line of eight weeks, and then whoever wants to be back in the building. Ganvie. Becky I. Knew Your district did stagger started with students coming in for in person classes I think only one day week, which means I, think he'd only have a twenty percent occupancy at any given time. How is that working out? What are the difficulties? That you're finding just for other educators who are out there. That's true. We have about we're a small district. We only have about twenty, two, hundred students system wide good part. We're all on one campus with four schools on one campus we did decide. For. An option our our students could also choose to do all online and to do virtual learning. So when we say we brought in twenty percent, it's a little bit less than that because of those virtual learning students who are already online, but we did we stagger. So students are in school one day a week, and then they do digital learning the next four days until they come back to their in person day and it's worked out very well for US I can say. Got Of great feedback from parents teachers from other from administrators It does create some difficulty and you touched on that a second ago parents. It creates a difficulty for parents and I understand that and we want to be sensitive to that. But at the same time we thought why with the pressure to open, this is the only way that we could open safely and that was our first priority, and if if I know with contact tracing if a classroom if the student has positive. What happens in terms of quarantining D- do does the teacher they were in touch with does that person have to then leave school does the classroom what happens? Well. Again, because we open with such small numbers, it's very easy for classes to social distance and so Alvar staff are required to wear masks all times. Our students are not required. They six through twelve. We have strongly suggested that they wear and then pre K. through five. We have suggested that they wear if they're going to be in close groups. However. It's been good because most all students are wearing mask as well. But again, a classroom if a student test positive. There may only be for their students in that class right and they've been distance, and so when you do the contact tracing, what we have found is that very few of them have been in close contact for ten minutes or more within six feet of one another, and so the exposure has been very limited and most of the time both have on mass. So they can continue come to school and the teachers continue coming to school. Even though they they've. Been in the area of of a student, but not for a prolonged time. That's correct. Now, the student that tests positive obviously would corentin for fourteen days. Okay and and then anyone else that we find that may have been in close contact with that person and may have some exposure. They would also contain for the fourteen days. Brian's Brian the guidance for Best Practices for schools has been a moving target of both federal and state levels of Texas Office of in a hot spot for the virus in recent weeks how has that changed your plans and preparations have? It's changed dramatically when we surveyed our families in early June, we had about three quarters who indicated they wanted to come back for in person learning than we sent the same survey out in mid-july that was down more like a third, and so it has altered plans dramatically unfortunately in Texas we've had constantly shifting state. As well, and so I don't honestly know which version of the plan were on at this point I lost track a long time ago. But the the prevalence of the viruses. Shifted our plans but I feel good that we got a good plan on. Nimble plan. Going forward, and we'll be able to serve families either in the building or in distance learning well O'Brian woods and becky stone I appreciate can't imagine how difficult it is to be an educator right now and not appreciate all you're doing. Thank you very much.
Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good
Washington vs. Big Tech: Taking on the Trillion-Dollar Club
"Lawmakers came out swinging yesterday against Amazon Apple, Alphabet and facebook at an historic antitrust hearing held with CEOS, Jeff bezos, Tim Cook Sundar Pichai, and Mark Zuckerberg. Over remote Webcam, you swear or affirm under penalty of perjury that the testimony you out to give his show incorrect. The Best of your knowledge information and belief. So help you God. Yes. Let the record, show the witnesses answered informative. Thank you, and you may remain seated members of the House Judiciary Committee's antitrust subcommittee used charged language like too much power, Anti Competitive Acquisition and emperors as they aired their concerns about those four giant platforms. Here's the subcommittee chairman. Democrat, Peterson, Selene, a Rhode Island, our founders would not bow before king, nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and ranking member? Wisconsin's Jensen. Brenner. Pointing out. Political concerns about size does big tech have a bias serves our consumers to? The need the protection of the antitrust laws. Both sides of the aisle had their opportunity to highlight this core conflict between Washington and Silicon Valley that antitrust enforcement can fix whatever is challenging or concerning about big tech. The CEO's for their part. Say We haven't squashed the competition. Here's Pichai Cook and Zuckerberg competition drives US team. needs to better products, Noah choices and more choices for every customers have a lot of choices in their products space fierce competition companies like Samsung, G. while way in Google has built successful businesses with different approaches. We okay with that. Our goal is the best, not the most I recognize that there are concerns about the size and power of tech companies. Now, we're services are about connection. Our business model is advertising and we face intense competition in both Amazon's ECOMMERCE dominance sparked a few intense moments after CEO Jeff bezos. The richest man in the world with a personal fortune of about one hundred and eighty billion dollars didn't get a question until nearly two hours into the hearing apparently due to a tech glitch. But then the pressure was on basis was asked about undercutting diapers, dot com before buying it Amazon's counterfeit problem whether Alexa favors Amazon's own products, many times. He didn't have the answer I. Don't remember that at all. I remember is that we we we'd match competitive. I believe we follow diapers cog, and this is eleven years ago I. Think we do is offer to get you information if you. Get it to your office for you read that article, but I didn't remember that piece of that I apologize for that I don't know the specifics of that situation, and I would be happy to give back to your office with more information about that. These questions for Basil's and Amazon strike at the heart of the antitrust that had been building for years as these four companies that we use every day every single day grow and grow larger with a combined market. Market cap of about five trillion dollars. If they were their own stock exchange, they'd be the fourth largest in the world. Here's vice chair. Joanna goose to facebook's mark. Zuckerberg strikes me over the course of the last several years. FACEBOOK has used. It's market power to either purchase or replicate the competition and facebook facebook. MESSENGER WHATSAPP instagram are the most now downloaded APPs of the last decade your company. Sir, owns them all and we have a word for that words monopoly. My Take Away I. Don't know I. Don't know if you guys watched I thought some of it was fascinating. A couple of questions, not not a lot of great questions thought. There's a lot of some good answers, some not good answers, but I didn't think that there was a major takeaway that all of a sudden. You know Washington was Gonna come down hard on these companies and there was evidence that was presented. That was gonna GonNa, create that challenge. I thought the most challenging piece of of news out there. But I think we've seen it before was instagram and facebook in some of the emails back and forth. Did you ever use this very similar facebook camera product to threaten instagram's founder Kevin side-stream? Congresswoman I'm I'm not sure what you mean by threatened I. Think it was public that we were building a camera up at the at the time in a chat. You told, MR, science that facebook was quote developing our own photos strategy. So how we engage now, we'll also determine how much were partners versus competitors down the line instagram's founders seem to think that was a threat he confided confided in an investor at the time that he feared you would go. That you would go into quote destroy mode if he didn't sell instagram to you, one of respectfully disagree with the characterization. Really dug into the emails and didn't take them out of context I. Thought, you'd have a hard case to make. Yeah, I, mean. I thought on on the point with facebook is easy Riley points to the quite a few different lawmakers went off the Mark Zuckerberg on on the topic of their competition practices whether he considered some of those companies they've taken over I, walk up and Instagram as competitors at that point which knowledge that they had been, which kind of course, a bit of a stir. Has Been Engaged in purchasing competition I, in some cases, replicating competition in some cases eliminating your competition, would that be a fair statement? The space of people connecting with other people is a very large space and I would agree that there were different approaches we took to to addressing different parts of of that space, but it's all in service of building the best services. Likewise said that they had tried to copy some of the particular tools that other rivals whether they bought them or not use including. Of course, the stories feature snap, which I thought was quite interesting, but Geo Point, Andrew as to whether we we conclude from yesterday that significant action from no makers is imminent. Even if we go to a sweep at the next election, the market didn't take that conclusion on those times. Talks hit session highs during the hearing, but the interesting dichotomy which goes to the question. Of, how much we managed to watch I watched as much as I could apart from when fed chair Jay Powell speaking and I watch that instead, and you had one side of Washington of goes up pressuring these tech stocks. The other part saying that we're hit as long as it takes, we're not even thinking about thinking about thinking about raising rates and not allowed old. Not just the textbooks. And close at a pretty strong session yesterday can I? Can I just ask whoever buys a company? That's not a competitor I mean. News the idea that you would buy a competitor when. Merger has ever taken place among a company that does an entirely different area that you wouldn't consider a competitor. Watching. This yesterday was complete theater just like it often is with the these congressional hearings. At. The beginning, they were asking questions and not even letting them answer. So this was really about giving Congress people their time to have their six minutes to talk and to go through with some of these things, I didn't feel like learned a lot under yesterday. I couldn't take my eyes off it when I was watching it, but it was theater. Classic, you'll take the time comments from lawmakers when they get me on. So they wanted to I, totally agree on that, but I would say compared to say twenty eighteen when Mark Zuckerberg had to go to face, they'll make on his own. Better prepared than they had even if it was then making arguments rather than letting. The answer, their questions, they made better arguments. They brought up more pertinent facts whether that was is Amazon. Abusing small sellers on this. Platform. In two, thousand, thirteen, it was reported that you instructed Amazon employees to approach discussions with certain business partners, and I quote the way a Cheetah would pursue a sickly gazelle is the gazelle projects still in place and as Amazon pursue similar predatory campaigns in other parts of its business. I cannot. comment on that because I don't remember it. Is. Apple misusing the margins, it takes on on the APP store. Apple from increasing its commission to fifty percents we serve. We have never increase commissions in the store since the first day at operated in two thousand eight. From doing so is it? No, Sir I disagree strongly with that, there is a competition for developers just like there's a competition for customers. So I think they were getting it the crux of some of the issues. But as we I think all concluding I, it didn't spell imminent danger for the tech stocks just because of that air. Just one note though on the competitor. Comment there or issue that you were just discussing Becky, which is an interesting one. We often talk on the show about how being a monopoly unto. itself is not illegal, and you just commented that you can't buy from everybody wants to buy competitor. Interestingly, if you're deemed a monopoly which is not illegal, but you have that market power, it actually is illegal to buy a competitor, and so if you really go back and read mark, Brooks emails even. Even about the instagram transaction, he actually even doubled back on one of his emails because I. Think he realized that given the power that having that industry depending on how you define it that he had to rewrite the email later to suggest no, I'm not trying to do this. He was by the way thinking about this, even to two, thousand, ten, you can. Almost, if you look through emails, you can sort of see how tracking in his mind. The Way He's thinking about it. So yes, everybody always wants to buy. But Inter stands at the size and scale that these companies are. Now, it's very hard to do that actually. Hit His. Answer. was that the FTC had all the same information that they had at that point in the FTC Peruta

"San Francisco supervisor hasn't produced local legislation aimed at stopping racially motivated 911 call San Francisco Supervisor Sherman Walton has introduced what he calls the caution against racially exploitive, not Emergencies Act or Karen Act, Karen spelled with a C But in reference to the term Karen with a K, which is described as a person, usually a white woman who uses privileged to get their way. This has been also used to describe a recent 911 calls by white women about black men barbecue Becky to permit padding and the Central Park woman who called police on a black man she said was threatening her. While it is already against the law to make a false 911 call, it could result in a six month Yeltsin's Walton says. This act will also allow for victims to sue
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy on concerns of a rise in coronavirus cases
"Earlier this week, the governors of the tri-state Area New York New Jersey, and Connecticut announced that visitors arriving from states with surging coronavirus numbers will be asked to self quarantine for fourteen days or face fines. Here's Becky. We welcome Governor Phil Murphy from New Jersey. He's. He's been watching his state open up after four long months and and governor. Thanks for being with us this morning. When you get out there, you really start to see people who were back out in restaurants again going out shopping out of beaches and parks and a just wonder as you watch this. If you worry that, we're going to see a rise in cases, and what numbers you're watching how you're measuring this to decide if we're doing this the right way first of all, it's good to be back with you and we do worry. Which is why we've been taking this in very specific. Phases in terms of reopening. Outdoors is a lot less concerning than indoors. That's not to say there aren't concerns outside, but the the concerns pale in comparison to say inside lacking ventilation sedentary close proximity. That's a bad. Those are bad characteristics for this virus. The things we look at most closely in terms of our guides are rate of transmission. If it's under one that means less than one other person is getting infected if they're in contact with someone who has got the virus. The spot positivity rate, meaning what percentage of folks getting tested are actually positive for covid nineteen, and thirdly as new hospitalizations, those are the three here and now data points. We look at a lot of data, but those are the three that matter the most we have seen things. Get a little out of control in states like Texas. Florida Arizona, even California you're starting to see some real pickups in these things and we spoke with Dr Scott. GOTTLIEB I know you're familiar with Scott and I'm well. He said that contact tracing is not being done very effectively in a state like Texas. They don't know why young people are getting it. These states are really doing. Very good contact tracing where to isolate the source of the spread. They think it's congregate settings where young people gathering because young people are the ones who are getting infected at a higher percentage, and so they've. They've identified the bars. And most of the people, apparently most of the people who are presenting sick, the young people preserving sick have identified that they've been in barbies. Lay or a lot of them when I talked to the physicians, but they don't know for sure qepared. Are you in New Jersey in terms of contact tracing? Try and figure out if there's a spike in cases where it's coming from and what? I can't. I can't speak to the specifics of Texas Scott is a great guy and has been a great adviser Jersey Guy by the way. We have we have since day? One remember none of us at any of this at the beginning, so what if you're looking for a source of comfort, folks or silver lining its testing tracing plans? Ties isolate folks who have the virus. We had none of that as a country or state three or four months ago. We now test him the top couple per capita states in the nation. With the great help of Rutgers, our flagship State University. We're adding meaningfully till the already nine hundred contractors we have. We hope to get up over two thousand within the next couple of weeks. I hope and believe that our approach will be effective. Again our numbers have gotten notwithstanding the loss of over thirteen thousand people. It's hard to believe we've lost that many in New Jersey alone. Our numbers have gotten dramatically better, so we've been able to do the contact tracing up until now at least with local and county tracers. We have nine hundred of them on the field so far so good, but we WANNA. Make sure we've got a capacity that looks like our testing capacity. Just in case and I think we all have to be prepared for this. We hope for the best, but prepare for the worst that this is going to flare up. And we need that tracing infrastructure in place. anecdotally again, it's far more concerning inside than outside. At least a New Jersey I can't speak for Texas. That's where our biggest concerns are
TikTok Teens Tank Trump Rally in Tulsa, They Say
"Let's bring in our next guest. Now we're going to be a fascinating conversation with Jim Anderson, who was CEO of social flow and and full disclosure of social Faux is a platform that is used by Bloomberg for Social Media purposes used by many, many companies. Jim. Welcome. We brought you on because you want to talk to you a little bit about what happened at that also rally over the weekend and how k pop Zoomer is on DH. Those who stand with them If you like managed to reserve tickets for this rally, And then of course, they didn't turn up. They weren't interested doing that. They this How did it work to talk to us about Tic tac and the power ofthe sort of amplification? Yeah. Bonnie. Thanks for having me This is this is a great story in terms of just illustrating the power of viral distribution on social networks, right? I mean, it's not a new concept. Facebook's would have been around for more than a decade, Twitter and others. And so what we saw is Tic Tac, which is an application typically used for like dance videos. Being harnessed in a really new in different way. But the same algorithms that power those games video make him show up in your feet also powered the teenage activist efforts and, interestingly, they're disappearing messages right. One of the things about pickpockets, messages disappear after some period of time. Not only did their parents not know what was going on because parents I have a teenage daughter is awfully difficult to know what's going on with major, but the messages themselves disappeared. So it sort of teenage tradecraft at work in an essential media world. So chip. Do we have hard data that shows that this is what really happened that there was, in fact, I guess, quote unquote bogus request for tickets that were never Fulfilled or picked up. Well, we don't and there's really no way for us to know I can. I can bet you that the campaign Trump campaign has that data, but it's certainly not going to be in their interest to sort of give this story any oxygen in to admit that that happened. And I didn't want to make one really important point because this issue office gets deflated. The activities of the teenagers didn't keep people from showing up to the rally. I think the fact that we're in the midst of a global pandemic The rally was in Tulsa, Oklahoma. That population of 400,000. You know, you're asking to fill an 18 or 19,000 feet Arena plus 40,000 seats of overflow of amount nor stage. I think what they did, though, is they created the expectation. Oh, my goodness, This thing is out of control. The campaign wanted to believe that there was sort of giant pent up demand. So then they started talking about it. They wanted to believe it was true. And then they got set up for a big giant sort of deflation of expectations. That's what the manager exactly So on the one hand, it was a little bit of hubris. They were boasting about how many people are coming. They were creating outdoor overflow spaces. On the other hand, there was complacency. They didn't sort of in cold arms. The base which may have been a good thing given, the Corona virus has definitely not gone away. What's the power that you know? Ah, group of fans like K pop fans and Zuma is and so on, can leverage on Tic tac. Beyond Thiss is there Is there something a little more political in terms of getting out the vote or in terms of, you know? Convincing people to participate in democracy more Yeah, I think they're definitely are a lot of things and many people are excited that Wow, this is sort of the tip of a much larger sphere as uh, Teenagers. Come of age come a voting age. Specifically, I saw statistic this morning that one of 10 eligible voters Will be Gien Z on the upcoming presidential election. So you know they're They're starting to find their voice and I'll go back to these algorithms. I mean, it sounds varies with Becky and not very accessible to talk about algorithms, but largely algorithms or a political right. They taken spread content. On left, right middle up down that they generally are not political line up. People. Criticism of them are significant and they feel like their side is being discriminated against. But if the teenagers are excited, are spreading it and are paying attention. The algorithms noticed that and then they contribute to that, and I sent viral distribution. Of of content is and that's exactly what I'm talking about. So, Jim. I know the Tic Tac is a Chinese company. I can imagine the Trump administration. The Trump campaign knows this is well should we expect a torrent of tweets coming out of President Trump, saying that Chinese China's interfering with the election of the campaign? So I would always hesitate to predict what the president's going to do on Twitter for all the obvious surfaces, right, But I will say that there was bound to be really uncomfortable conversations and probably uncomfortable Sunday picked on When you're owned by a Chinese company. They've gone to great effort, including hiring a very senior executive from Disney to try to build their brand as not a Chinese own brand. That's probably the last thing they want to say. And to be clear. Tic Tic Tac really had nothing to do with this. From a company standpoint, they just provided the platform. The K pop users or other teenagers provided the excitement and the energy and they used the platform. In some ways as a platform was designed to be used, which is distributing viral videos. But in other ways, you know, I'm sort of the youth cases in and around politics is certainly not what likely had in mind.
Complaining to the Board Chair
"I am a board member of a tiny grassroots nonprofit. One paid staff member recently I received a private message through through facebook from someone our organization served. This person said they wanted to talk with me about a bad interaction they had with someone at our agency in my role is the board president? Is this appropriate for me to respond to? How best should I handle this situation? Such a juicy question, isn't it you? Know! We're all untouchable. These days with social media aren't we could like? People can find us anywhere. Yeah, and then feel the feel because they were able to find you on link to that. It's totally cool the call. You Yeah at home that night. It's really. Not that that's happened before we're holding grudges or Note! So? I think I'm going to guess that. The relationship that you have as a board is the board you support President or board member just says board PRO president, but it and it says staff members, so we don't know what kind of staff I'm. I'm. I'm making assumptions an executive director, but maybe it isn't yeah, so so I mean hopefully that relationship with with the organization and the board is a really good one right so that so that you're not I mean the probably the reason you're uncomfortable with. This is because you trust the staff and you. You want them to do a good job, and you're just not clear how you should handle that that responsibility is it? Is it your responsibility to be able to respond to that kind of thing, or you should leave it to the staff to do I think in my mind, you know my position is always. Let's just as wide open as we possibly can. I would probably do two things at once. I would reach out to the board chair. The the Executive Director, whoever the staff member is and say hey I got an email from this person. And I'm going to respond to them. This is what they said. Do you have any input before I? Reach out to them so that you can sort of let them know that that's what's happening before you respond, and then your response can be totally non-committal as you want. Which is, thank you so much for your concern I'm really happy to talk to you. However like I'd rather you approach this through the staff that we have whose job it is to take care of this. And let me know how it goes right. Leave yourself open to getting feedback after the fact, but but figure out a way to to turn it back to the staff to let the staff take care of it because. Either you know what there's one of two realities either one something really bad did happen, and this person is no maybe trying to do a whistle blower complaint kind of thing, or they're grumpy. Gus and just don't feel like the free service they got was free. Enough or whatever it is, and they just want you know I want to talk to your manager. Says becky right. Yes, we could all. We can all hear that awful, really the person who had a really bad day. WHO's taking it out on the world around? I'm Lou well. It's interesting because I. I generally agree with you I think my approach. I think I would do something similar, but maybe take a little bit of a different tact so. My thought process with these kinds of things is that. I absolutely would go to a staff member. I like you said before but I. Don't know if it would be. As much. As much of a I'm doing this and anything. You want to share as much as it would be. Hey, I got this and I just wondered. Do you know anything about this person or this situation? Because I think what I'd be looking to to hear is it's a one way I think it's a one person stuff you know staffed organization so I think I'd WanNa know, could it have any? Maybe it's potentially a volunteer. Maybe it was some client and the the this person that was complaining didn't understand. Understand that I don't know like I don't know there's so many variables that I really would want to re- to see if I could check in with staff first, and then sort of almost problem solved with them. About what is the best approach day could tell me this person is an avid complainer complains about everything. Does this like every week? Right and then just happened to find me, and that's probably gonNA influence even how I approach the person so I think I would really take it from A. Hey! Do you know this person, Dean? What's what was the situation? And then kind of go? forbear now of course. I still think we owe it to the person who reached out to you to at least let them know, but then I think for me. It would a lot of that would be contingent on what I just learned, and so, what either be talked to a staff member. But what if it was about? If the complaint was about that staff member? That's a really uncomfortable situation. Let's say it was an executive director that whatever miss whatever was did something that this person really took offense to I. Think than just I would want to know that as a board member because this person's representing us. And so I think I would then reach out and say to the person listen I. Appreciate you reaching out We obviously take all concerned seriously. Can I set up a time to talk to you? And then if it was about the then, it would all be I. still have to have the ease back off members back that this person's con- you know calling me about or emailing. emailing me about, but like I can at least then kind of know a little bit of history before I go into it, so I'm sort of armed a bit better, so that's that's the way I would take it, and then you know. Of course it was about a volunteer or some other part of the organization that that staff manages than absolutely like this person needs to talk. Talk to the staff member of managing that part of the organization, and just whatever figure it out, but it's. It's like that fine line of of being. Attentive. Old Customer Service Line of. I'M NOT GONNA Defend I'm just GONNA. Listen I'm not going to necessarily college but I'm GonNa. Listen right and I'm just going to say I hear you. I hear your frustration and we're going to try to rectify this or we'll take a I, appreciate you telling me. Hope our. Future experiences you know aren't like this, but it's kind of like. This person probably just needs to get something off their chest, and hopefully they go away.

"Hundreds of factories, refineries, farms and mines across the country say they cannot comply with environmental regulations because of the pandemic. This is according to an NPR review of hundreds of state environmental records. Those records show that companies have asked for a wide range of special permission during this pandemic including things like delaying checking for leaks in storage tanks and measuring pollution from smokestacks and pure science reporter Rebecca Hersher is here to talk about this, Becky, hi, there. Okay, so industry is saying there's a pandemic. We need some special allowances here. What exactly are we talking about? Well, it's a real drag. Some of the issues are relatively minor like submitting an annual report late, but I also found a fair number of substantial requests, mostly from industries that release a lot of pollution like landfills have been asking states to relax pollution monitoring rules hog farms have asked for permission to house extra animals, because meatpacking plants per temporary closed and oil and gas companies ask for states back off and enforcement of a wide range of environmental regulations. I mean, be understand why an oil or gas company has trouble being able to check for pollution because of a pandemic. Well there are a couple of reasons. Navy furloughs get in the way like if employees who usually right in filed pollution appurtenant working because of the pandemic, another reason the companies gave is that a lot of pollution monitoring is done by outside contractors and they were trying to limit people coming onto facilities because of the virus. We know these details, though because a small number of states make them public, but another problem here is that no one is systematically keeping track of these types of nationwide requests. no-one keeps an eye on. Who On these industries and with? They're asking for right now. Why is that? Well in March? The Environmental Protection Agency the EPA put out a pandemic policy that said companies don't need to warn federal regulators if they feel like the pandemic interfering with routine pollution, monitoring or testing instead, they said states could keep track of that information if they choose to. The EPA says, this is out, works it partners with states, and that is how a lot of environmental regulation. Regulation works although former EPA officials say this policy gives industries a lot of leeway now some states are doing this kind of tracking, but I've found that most kids don't publish any information about which companies say. The pandemic is getting in the way, and that means most Americans who live near factories refineries farms. They have no way to know whether the pandemic is causing extra pollution. I mean that kind of uncertainty is is a big problem for for people who live near these sorts of facilities I would imagine. Especially for people who live downstream or down wind of facilities that have have violated environmental laws in the past on a found a fair number of examples like this, so for example there's a minor Indiana in early April, the mine said it was releasing wastewater with high levels of ammonia and small particles, because they were cleaning buildings with a lot of bleach to kill the virus that same mino ins repeatedly violated the clean water act passed by releasing water with two small particles in it and I talked to a local resident who lives downstream. He was really frustrated. John Blair. The air pollution is visible. The water pollution is less visible and you know I mean almost anything could be blamed on the virus I suppose. Now. The state told the mind to stop releasing water with titles, Manja and many of the requests I looked at were denied, but the only reason we know about that interaction is because Indiana published a publicly in most states are not doing which means most Americans are in the dark. Pure science reporter Rebecca Hersher. Becky thanks for that reporting. Thanks so
How to Spread and Scale - The Billions Institute Story
"In the next podcast will hear from some of the delegates to see how the billions approach can help them. Dig Deep and think bake. But first we invite the founders becky. Marta and Joma Cannon to explain their philosophy depth. And tell us about some of their success stories along the way. And what about the stay here in Wales? It's been wonderful. Yeah, we! We really enjoyed interacting with the group here. There was lots of creativity and energy and ambition at the end of the day, and so we really feel energized by that there are many different approaches to change many different methodologies. One is large scale change. So why is it different from other approaches I think large-scale changes something that goes beyond the boundaries of your organization that it's big enough that you can't do it yourself and that it's more about making sure what it is that works. Works or that's useful or a service in the world gets to everyone who could possibly benefit, so it's really breaking beyond the confines of what you can do with the resources you have and flipping it to thinking of what needs to be done. And how can we get there I? Think if you've had a successful prototype or pilot. There tends to be a belief that if I just work if I want to reach ten times as many people I just need to work ten times as hard and and somehow. To muscle my way to to that kind of reach, and in fact, that's not the case you know. We know you have to really think very deliberately about how you tap into others and their creativity, and their ideas and effectively deputize others to to carry the work forward, and so that requires a lot of relationship building, getting people to share your values and your beliefs or surfacing their beliefs and values, and and giving them a lot of room to roam and. and to introduce the work themselves I think you know the other kind of major learning that I always return to. Is that our pedagogical model in the West? which is that we need to go out and teach people how to do things. is is not really that effective when it comes to large scale change instead we have to sort of understand again where people's passion is where their skills are and and remove impediments to them, doing their best work and support them. Them in applying their best new ideas and innovations, and and so You know that's quite different than imposing external targets or or trying to inspect people into actually making making change happen at scale one final thought you know that there's a joyfulness and creativity to this kind of work that I think often gets lost. You know there are so many tactics and strategies and tools that are available to people who are interested in large scale change so many ways to raise. Raise awareness and build will and and transfer skills, and I think if we don't get curious about those and playful and yeah experimental, you know then it's really at our peril. We can't sort of say there's one monolithic strategy that we choose at the outset and you know we're GONNA stick to plan, and and you know in eighteen or thirty six months. Expect that to work You know there's very little evidence to suggest that it will we have to be? Adaptive in opportunistic and enjoy kind of this exploratory. wending process for finding a way to to get to the result that we seek
Inaction Costs You More Than Anything Else
"Take the action. If you make a mistake, you can exit, but inaction is what's going to cost you more than anything else? You have the power to choose. To choose your path. A different direction are to reframe the situation. You're brave enough to see a better future and take action on it. You will be the change that you want to see in the world and the world respond. The power of choice impacts every aspect of your career in life. I believe it sets you free. And it's the cornerstone to personal and professional development. If I had one thing to share with future generations it's. Just. Do feel the fear and do it anyway. It's fine to listen to people like mean giving out information and ideas, but who cares the none of those ideas are acted upon. It's your action that matters. When my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I made a conscious choice to treasure every moment and create lifelong. With the time we had remaining the power of choice provided us with the ability to refrain the situation. It's the people that are willing to step out there and take bold action that are the ones that make a difference. You have everything inside of you. All you need is within you now. The decision to celebrate and appreciate each day rewarded us with meaning and purpose and offset the darkness of the Odyssey. There's so much great advice out there. There's lots of things that are going to ring true for you and at the same time. Bold action beats great ideas seven days a week. I believe the resulting positive mindset was the key determining factor that allowed my husband to live two years longer than his prognosis, and our daughter emerged from this difficult journey empowered. With the knowledge that every destination is a doorway to another. Just keep adding value. Continue to step into what it is that you are here to contribute, understand how you can add value to the world and just keep doing it. An alternate viewpoint is not wrong rather. It's coming from a unique perspective. I choose to delve deeper to understand and genuinely consider option in turn. This pushes me beyond my own paradigm. Think about it, the unknown as where everything you don't see lips. Be, excellent perfection is an illusion, it is unattainable, is the worst standard instead commit to yourself to be old. Take old action and do the best you can. That's all we need from you. When you do the best, you can every single day. You are going to be one of the change makers. Asking why six times enables me to discover and examining by route. It also opens up new ideas and alternate avenues. Through this process I gained clarity. Which I can leverage my power a choice. Being able to step into your power means letting go of the fears of not doing it perfectly. As a leader I use the power of choice to question why an open the door to opportunity. I choose to ask. You're going to be a lot of people. They're going to tell you becky wrong that you don't know what you're talking about. And that's fine, but no one ever built a statue critic. I am car myself. Organization! and. And follow a new path of. Having a great idea and watching somebody else execute on. It is heart-wrenching. It's about stepping into your full power understanding who you are and the value you can create in the world. Finally I use the power of choice to open my mind to possibilities. I choose to listen to divergent opinions with respect and curiosity. E willing to fail. You'll learn more from your failures than you do. Your successes don't be discouraged by them. Learn from them. The only mistake is the one you continue to make. When you learn from something, you're able to apply it and get even better. A little bit better every day and you're. GonNa get to exactly where you. WanNa go.
"becky" Discussed on The First Degree
"Remember what my life used to be like. So it's so heartbreaking and fill is the person who took becky away from coal from Susan from Bobby from everyone who loved her. And what's interesting is that I try to do. A deep dive to figure out who this guy is is but the truth is many details about him remain very very elusive. We know that he spent a lot of time in prison. Over the years which I'm sure as a contributing factor to me not being able to find much about him I did re read that Phil had been a licensed vocational nurse in Texas until he lost losses. Licensed in two thousand six. which is three years after becky was murdered by him and in terms of what I can find about him on the Internet there? There isn't much I did find one article detailing arrest at age eighteen. Where he's still in one thousand nine hundred one Ford Mustang from Johnny Williams Ford in Texas and any lit on fire? We do know that he was married at least once to Becky's Ex's cousin we know he's now a born again Christian. We know he's going to rot in prison. And we know he's a murderer who stole becky from her family and her friends and while some have taken becky they keep her alive within them. Almost everything That I remember from Becky had colon it He was a major part of her life. She was she was such a fun kid. No matter what it kind of predicament. She was in. I mean like I said she was. She had a lot of financial stuff but she was always positive No this is something but also coming around the corner and this is GonNa be good And she brought out the positivity and other people around her to it was not you know how success it was like. WELL WE'RE GONNA get out She did have a great laugh. I can hear it still. She always thought of the positive. I there's no doubt that when you're close to something like this it changes you. I wouldn't say that I am more skeptical the people I mean. I guess I'm I'm a septic skeptical of people anyways. I am a huge lover of all things crime but I also even to this day. I still believe leave that you know. The majority of the people in the world are good and yes. They're going to be those people out there but the majority of the people are good. I genuinely trust a lot of people it has made me. I know that whenever I was being interviewed by the police it was but also I look at coach those relationships is there a little more important. And you don't WanNa take those for granted he don't WanNa take any any relationship that you have for granted because you don't know when it's going to be on so in a case this layered and complex and one that goes over the span of ten ten years. There are a lot of questions to be had in terms of the investigation. In this case in particular there are a couple of really glaring perplexing elements in one is the purse right and as Phil confessed to the entire crime and was pretty. I believe honest about everything that you're talking about. He didn't have any idea about that purse. He didn't know how it got back into the house. So that's so weird thing because apparently the family and friends tore apart that house trying to look for it because she always put a person the same little cabinet spot. It was gone John and then it was their months later and I think but can we believe him because he came back a second time to hide evidence maybe he took it with them initially. Maybe he brought it back. Maybe he was conflicted about keeping it. Maybe wanted a trophy. Maybe he's not that sick. Maybe he's like this personal sink me. I needed to put it back because bobby sounded so sure that they tore it apart. The police came in the desert for Prince. They tore it apart. It sounds odd to me in a one bedroom. Mm apartment the purse you can find. I mean if you guys decide to go down the robin halt. There are pictures of this purse. It looks more like a little duffel bag. It's not small Ya yeah. It's not usually overlook cylindrical. It's not a tiny. I don't see how a one bedroom apartment that could have happened unless it was put back it was put back. Yes but there's no chance it wasn't no of course it's just weird to be for somebody to actually come clean with everything for you. Know whatever reason. Yeah he's doing it and then to just be like I didn't do the guy didn't put it back. But what would it matter if you put it back or not. In the grand scheme you of what is conviction would be because his his propensity to lie is so strong I mean call the cops ten years later and said I want to pass us. Then they come and he says this overdose story because he's trying to say that I've turned over to my faith but he's still shame he's like half is the third visit where he masturbated in the place or something and he's just knocking to admit to put the purse back. He's just still he doesn't want to accept how how evil and sick he is no bottomline. We knew it was Phil. Oh yeah bottom line. No doubt about that. The person mystery. It's odd in a second mystery. Is the timeline because we talked about. It's not a mystery. It's just luck for him. Because we talked about. Bobby's call call at eleven pm with Becky. We're Phil was there. The first time we'll fill had just been kicked out or been kicked out it's been kicked out. Yes and then will will who has been cleared. As no implication in this set at one thirty he left a note and Cole was alone. Then becky's Recchi's ex boyfriend who she was rekindling with who they were starting to be romantically involved again. Had A missed call former at two am no reason ally who knows Knows there are some questions. Yeah it's a little bit bad cases that drag on ten years often the initial investigations are not done as carefully That would have been an easy question to answer back then really hard now In police departments aren't perfect. I I mean becky wasn't a perfect kid. They had lots of reasons. I'm sure to be like she disappeared or she she'll be back soon and you don't necessarily go over everything with a fine tooth comb until you know for sure right so I don't think anyone's evil here other than mckellar but these things happen all all right.

"becky" Discussed on The First Degree
"Phil was now forty one at this point Phil was incarcerated again. It was serving a fourteen year sentence and the Missouri Department of Corrections for a Jasper County. Bank robbery so the police. I went to see him and he started off coy and he was on his same bullshit and he was giving conflicting stories. This or that. But the COPS. CBS kept him talking. And if somebody keeps talking you still have a chance. You want to keep them talking and eventually elite Phil talked enough. Details began coming out and with the police. Ask Phil why he reached out to them. He said was his faith. He said he had the desire to serve Christ and whether he did it in prison walls or outside it didn't matter he still wants to serve Christ so fells. First story was A lukewarm one foot in one foot in one out confession so what he said was that he had previously been involved in a sexual relationship with becky. Prior to the night she went missing and was at her house parting with her. On the night she disappeared. And you said she died because she overdosed and the police knew he was giving half truths and accepting some lame but not really copying to exactly what he'd done at this point it's been ten years. It's been ten years of misery for the families. Ten Years of wasted resources from law enforcement ten years of bullshit. They were pissed they were. They decided to indict him for first degree murder and he'd be facing the death penalty if he was convicted after going to trial. This is oh happening in remember. Bobby Bobby is still the last person who spoke to Becky but it had been ten years. There's no answers in your force to move on. Not You never forget you never lose love for but the missing. It's purgatory and you cannot move on with your life. In when she did hear about this it would hit her. Like a ton of bricks. I moved moved on And Not saying that. I forgot because I didn't I still have a necklace with her. Birth down hanging in my car To this day it stays with me. It stayed with me for different vehicles and anybody who has been in my life for awhile knows about one day I my step. Mom called me Dan. She said Bobby you have there was a police officer here looking for you. They have their serving you and I was like they're serving me. which what and she's like? I don't know they wouldn't tell me address and they're coming to serve you know it's like Oh my God like freaking out like I had no idea what was happening and like I didn't do anything wrong. What's going on? I am actually contacted the police department where I live and they had actually not given given the papers yet and so I called the police department where my parents live. So they're like. Oh Yeah we we are. We are serving you and I was like well. What's what what are you have to come here so I went to the police station? And they're like here and it was. It was subpoena To justify and I was like Oh my God brought so many memories back and it was Because they had been searching Fermi for a month I was supposed to be in court in three days to testify at insult to punctuate the fact that bobby didn't. I didn't even know that Philip had been arrested. Then suddenly she's supposed to be in Branson in three days to testify so magin processing all this information these emotions and really really looking at Philip and realizing like you killed my best friend and how in what she was thinking about in terms of Ham You took away from somebody with your hands so all of you know so many emotions going once once I found out and once I gathered even more information about this man to her. Yeah and there wasn't any time it was like well. You have to come to Branston by now. I was like okay. Let me get somebody to cover me at work So she goes to her hometown to testify in the murder or case of her best friend and the DA's tactic worked and Phil started talking in exchange for a deal. They would downgrade his charges to second degree murder in exchange range. For telling the truth and sparing the Sutton family an entire trial so he started talking and Bobby was already halfway to Branson for the trial when he started talking so she got an interesting phone call. I was on my way down there and I made a about halfway down and she. He called me introduce that he played. You don't have to come foot. Call my God. This is crazy like you have put me through the most most emotional rollercoaster that anybody has ever been in in a matter of five hours thankfully bobby was spared Facing fill in court. Because I can't imagine how difficult that would be given what's happened. I was happy that he was caught. I was mad that they they had gone on too long. I was God that that she was gone. Because it brought back every single motion that you had but I had whenever the Davis she came up missing. And you know things emotions that I hadn't thought about And again not that. I hadn't thought about her but they don't think about those same emotions until something significant like that happens and that brought back every emotion than I ever ever had during that whole process of kind of find her but then I was so angry that this guy had waited ten years to confessed and unlike what kind of monster are Jozy you just let somebody family and friends and son just go on with life without knowing why why incest person why was their mom. Why was their daughter? Why was their friend? I me being the person that I am. I catch you research. Everything everything about him. Everything I wanted to see a picture. I wanted to see what his face looks like. And the first picture that I came up it was like a mugshot of him like an orange jumpsuit and he you were smiling and I just wanted to reach the computer and strangle him at myself because it was just disgusting I think he's evil And whether at the drug made him evil or whether that be he's evil incarnate He's evil I don't think he's sick. I you know. I don't Disgusting Human During Phil's confession. He admitted that he had never been involved in a sexual relationship with becky and he went went to her apartment that night with hopes of getting high and having sex with her when she rejected him he strangled her in a fit of rage on her bed. And this is all as coal well. Her son slept just a few feet away and he said that he removed Becky's body from her apartment and he plays the body in his car is vehicle then he drove around for a period of time and he eventually disposed Becky's body under this rock rock outcropping in built a wall. Yeah he he gathered these rocks and he used them to cover the body and create a barrier. And if you ever if you see eh the pictures of this crazy of this rock formation. It's almost like when you see in colonial times like the way that they built rock building. Yeah Yeah but it's so strange because it's so meticulous but it's so obvious. Yeah they if you do see the picture. It's it's like they're pleased so perfectly on top of each other like it's Brex odd exaggerating more attention either way. Let's get back to Phil's confession. What was he saying silly? We went to Becky's apartment and he took off the sheets. He took a pillow and he took off the pillow. Top mattress and any other items. They were inside the residence that might contain his DNA his hairs or whatever but it. It became obvious that this is where he did. The crime was right there in after he went to Becky's for the second time he drove back to Branson and cleaned his car of any. The evidence in through the floor mats from his car into a dumpster lit the mattress. And she's on fire at a construction site. He then admitted to fabricating the Entire Story Story about quote Unquote Scotty. who was just a figment of his imagination? Phil has told varying stories and while it will never truly be known exactly what happened. He does admit to murdering her and he said that he been attracted to Becky ever since his cousin in law dated her. It begs the question. How did this happen which thinking back now back super frustrated like hello? I just gave you a name and this person has called you and the person in has been in inner. Be You know the interview by you guys and you did nothing. You couldn't let two together but you know I'm not after please fill pleaded guilty. To second-degree murder Becky's family was present. You received thirty years. He said at his sentencing unquote I grieve constantly because of my actions I don't WanNa blame it on the drugs but the anger and bitterness comes out in ways you don't expect I never expected take someone's life and when he received a sentence he said quote there right. I deserve the Max and I deserve this. The only thing I can do now seek seek mercy from God you know it did allow you to close the chapter. Unfortunately you don't ever forget about it How can you ever really close a chapter on a friend who'd died that Choon in life And by those you know under those circumstances I don't I don't know because I don't think that that's ever closer. She didn't die but it was somebody else who took her life. Yes it was disclosure but in a sense no I mean there's there's always gonna be that you know what could have been would have gotten married. I mean would she have seen cold. Oh grow up would be you know have gone on to become you know she wanted to be You know Early Childhood advocation. She wanted to go into early childhood education. And so would that have been coming. Issue would have followed I don't know according according to court documents in a prepared statement. And this is going to devastate you becky son Cole. Who is to win? Miss Mom went missing and it was at this point almost thirteen and he said quote. Everyone is told me how wonderful my the mom was and it makes me upset that I don't remember.
"becky" Discussed on The First Degree
"Responsible has lasted a year as well. Tonight the clues. Her mother hopes will help capture the killer. Something knows something out there. Somebody knows how they're sleeping. Two years after her daughter disappeared and one year after her body was found here along creek in Bradley. Ville Susan Sutton still wants the the truth and while Becky's family still didn't know who was responsible for taking her life they finally got to bury her in May of two thousand four. Becky was laid to rest cemetery in Alton Illinois or other family members were also buried. Everyone involved in this case knew this was a homicide aside and despite that over year for Becky's mother to get her daughter's death certificate which indicated or cause of death so the medical examiner in this case noted the cause of death as probable as fixation due to strangulation. There were no stab wounds. No gunshots no catastrophic damage to her bones or skull fractures pictures and based on how long are skelton had been in the elements that me could not determine whether or not drugs or alcohol played any role in her. You know they said a sixty -ation due to strangulation and so we were like well. Why and that was actually left out of a lot of different reports and so I didn't actually know about that until after after we had buried her at the time? They said they didn't know now if you look at articles because 'cause little tribulation which we know was a case but when we did find out that was my gosh no because how somebody strangle her and then you know all those things come come up like get hurt did it. Was You struggling to see you know how do you how does she not wake up coal. 'cause he's let her you know maybe we'll thank God actually didn't wake up call because then you know maybe call it that cue who knows. His Maniac was vintage tour. So yeah it was hard to hear that she had died of strangulation days turned into weeks weeks to months months in two years loved ones. Becky's had passed out. Thousands of flyers rallied for news coverage conducted vigils and Mr Every single day the original officers on the case where burdened by it. Not Being solved but they were simply just out out of leads and out of ways to really implicate fell and that's when the hollister police get a call that they were really not expecting. It was March arch two thousand thirteen ten years after becky went missing nine years since her body was found and guess who was calling the police..
"becky" Discussed on The First Degree
"That was frustrating. Like why don't you know you're an integral part of the case in the beginning. Why do you not know anything? Three more months pass before police get any other useful information formation and then in September of two thousand and three a witness contacted the hall police and told them that Phil had come to our house and talked about Becky with her. He made statements to her that implied that he was Becky's apartment when she died. However Phil said that the person who killed Becky was a friend of his name? discography interesting soul told her that after school killed Becky he took her body and hit it. Where no one whatever find it I didn't know that So I didn't know what to think because I had so many different ideas. Yes ideas coming from the police. And then her mom and then other friends The friends I knew it was like you know we shared Like I said I. I didn't run the different circles of people that she did But Yeah I had some friends that did so. Well what about this first. I and what about this person and Eventually I remember getting called into the station. And they're like. Hey you know guy named scooby and I'm like I have no idea who you're talking about. Take back our number one time setback. Because she was he was there with her at the time. They said that they had multiple people telling about security. All right so this is kind of a big development and they need to speak to fill and confront him with this and this this whole Scotty scenario but they look for fill and they learned that he was actually incarcerated in Texarkana which is in Texas for an unrelated offense and when police actually finally tracked him down fill didn't deny knowledge knowledge of this story but he didn't want to answer any questions. He refused about Scotty about the situation Everything and the police with this information. They started searching for Scotty but there were no records that could ever be found for a person person using that name using that nickname using that alias and the police believe that Phil actually was there guy. But they still didn't have what they needed to prosecute prosecute him but they were comforted by the fact that he was behind bars. At least for the time being becky's friends and family members don't really know anything that's going on. This is all going on behind the scenes. I don't even know if I can really put it into words. How so? There's definitely that sadness and fear of what what happened to her and and is he okay and you know you really. Do you look different places. New Crowd here. You look whenever you go past ditches riches and stuff like and I see her body somewhere which is such a strange feeling. You never think that you're gonNA look for a person and I feel it's definitely a surreal feeling but also there thank you know you can't you can't mourn because she's not gone she may come. Come back you almost feel like you do have to mourn her because she's not there While there were many unanswered questions about where becky was how she was doing and what she was doing.

The forest is gigantic and it's not easy to locate organic matter bones in an area so vast so they start looking but six weeks later they find a skeleton stuffed into a rock overhang in the national forest near this unpaved. CBS logging road and this road is one of the few unpaved roads that a left in the area. It'd be impassable for for the average car but the road is actually well known to deer hunters and those who use it for four Willie. An audit glanced lanced. Police couldn't even tell whether the skeleton belonged to a man or a woman and this particular area was about thirty five miles or Becky had originally disappeared from and while they couldn't deduce whether this was a homicide by simply looking at the remains they were able to based on the meticulous way that these remains were actually hidden. Someone literally built a wall of stones and sealed off a small rock overhang which is like a very shallow cave with a broad wide opening. It's very obvious at this place. There wasn't just by happenstance and the police suspected that this could be becky but they needed to do testing to be sure Her mom it called me and said they found remains that they think is becky and then I remember her asking you.

I didn't feel like like I had to apologize to my girls for having a career but I did see that they kind of resented it and I could I could understand and why because it did take me away from them. Julia herself understands what it means to grow up with an absent mom her own mother was in New York talent agent who was always distracted with work and handed her off to a series of housekeepers and I had my own memories what I resented like my mother did not get up in the slate and so she didn't get up in the morning when my brother and I went to school so our lunches were always made by housekeeper.

I saw how hard it was but she was always sure to make the girls launches herself taking care to drop a a note in Saint. She was thinking of them that she loved them. As for the other household chores it seems like a lot of that fell to the young women she hired for Julia being responsible for the cooking and cleaning while working more than full time job was too hard and it was made even harder by an agreement struck with her husband has been D- early on in their marriage my husband I mean it was clear he never he never wanted kids as much as I did and he I think he loved them once they got out here but it was my deal and I was fully one hundred percent responsible for all child care duties and everything everything and that was something that was a bit of a problem in my marriage which ultimately and ended in divorce.

But I must disagree one of the intriguing things about ROY that you don't know when it will end on smackdown. We all know they're going to go home at nine fifty five which way allows us to predict which move on the match, whereas raw keeps us a bit more in the dark. We don't know. Exactly. What move is going to end a great event. Maybe there's a running eleven five that we wouldn't have gotten on smackdown. Due to time constraints at a time when WWF seems to telegraph match endings and surprise returns more than ever. It's a nice change of pace to not be able to predict the clock in my opinion. Unpredictability is one of the things that makes wrestling great. I agree. I would say stay made telling us you eat a piece of delicious.
