The secret to happiness during a miserable 2020 lies in science
"All right. So just gave me the short answer. How does happiness work? So there are a lot of misconceptions about happiness. We tend to think that if we find the perfect job a relationship or make a lot of money that's going to be what makes us happy. But really the science shows that are circumstances like how healthy we are what job. We have actually don't matter all that much when it comes to our happiness and real happiness doesn't mean that you never feel a negative emotion because of course, you're going to face problems in loss in your life but really happiness means accepting negative emotions and having skills to manage and cope with them and use them to make better decisions. Later, riots, there's no the idea that there's a silver bullet that guarantees happiness. That is just a complete fallacy, right? Exactly. All. Right. So you looked into this and There are a couple of things that you you brought up. There's this term that you have in your store that the the malleability of happiness if you sort of dig into that a little bit more, what does that mean? Yes Oh, there's another misconception that we tend to have about happiness, which is this idea that it's just built into our personality in you can't control how happy are but researchers have found that this really isn't true. Either and there's one popular theory that says that about fifty percent of our happiness is determined by genes, ten percent life circumstances, and then forty percent by our daily activities. So that might not be the actual breakdown there some controversy there but it does get into this idea that's pretty widely accepted, which is that at least some of your happiness is within your control and you can do things each day to change how happy you are. That's that is good to know especially after this year. It's very interesting this breakdown and then you had a couple of references to. Things like. The be able to measure you know five being five percents happier from a scientific perspective. How do you measure happiness cause? It feels so subjective, right? They're definitely different ways. The different researchers do it. There was one class at the University of California Berkeley called the science of happiness and they were measuring students, self reported levels of things like sadness, stress, loneliness anger but then also things like amusement enthusiasm, affection, sense of community and kind of taking all of those together to form why happiness based on all different facets. Got It so. Talk about the guidelines for chiefly happiness because you've got a breakdown of some. You know some really relatively easy to follow tips to to chief more happiness especially this year definitely, the biggest factor affecting happiness this year any year, all the time across multiple studies is social connection. One big study called Harvard Study of adult development found that close relationships with spouses family friends community members was the biggest thing keeping people happy throughout their lives and also physically mentally healthier at makes sense since you know we've we've largely been disconnected from most of our friends and founders share like how do you in the in the midst of in the context of this global pandemic in? Fact that we really can't each other how how do how does someone? Achieve that happiness. In, this kind of altered reality that we live in, it's a question, but it's definitely still possible. The researchers told me it's more about being intentional about reaching out to people and spending time with them. In the way you can, which might be a zoom call or phone call or taking a socially distanced walk but it's about knowing that those people are in your life and the quality of those relationships, which is something that you can keep up over long distances and I think that's really good advice because too often were were kind of stuck in our own world. I know I'm. Mike Media family are stuck in this apartment and there's almost a bunker mentality given all the things happened this year. So it's a it's a good reminder go out there and actually engage with people three of which what are some of the other. Tips or things we should be doing to spy or happiness. Another thing you can do on a daily basis is random acts of kindness, and that could be for people in your home in your family or stranger on the street or coworker on a video chat. Just doing something that will make someone else's Day a little bit brighter ends up giving you a psychological benefit in return knowing that you helped make someone happier and the biggest thing there is to kind of vary what you do. So maybe you make your roommate coffee one day maybe you compliment someone's NASC at the grocery store the next day too small things like that. Actually have big benefits for us to one of the other big things is learning to express gratitude, which as you say, can't feel Kinda hard to do in these times but just the simple act of writing down three things at the end of every day and reflecting on them that made. You happier that you're proud of that day, which can be something really small like had a good chat with my friend or Finished project that has been shown to have a lot of psychological benefits and just making you remember that there are good things in your life. A couple of the other things are practicing mindfulness, which I know you hear about a lot meditation apps and all of those things but they really do have a benefit for helping you kind of recognize emotions in. Let them go finally. The biggest thing is just really learning how to practice self compassion as well. One of the researchers told me that especially in the US. In the West we kind of very part on ourselves in self critical and when we do face a setback, we kind of beat ourselves up about it but one way to do that when you do face a hard time to kind of think about yourself as if you were talking to a friend if your friend lost their job, he wouldn't say, wow, you really suck and. Better luck next time. You'd be like, Oh, well, you know that was just one time and things are going to get better for you and just thinking of things more that way have some compassion for yourself.
Think Twice Before You Eat That Halloween Candy
"The urban legend of Razor Blades in your Halloween candy or poison hidden behind the sweet taste of a snickers bar has been around for decades to this day. Parents are still worn to inspect all candy give into their children to make sure that it's safe for consumption quoted from a mental floss article written by Ethan treks quote it's easy to see how urban legends have taken hold because they're so terrifying after all parents Ben Three hundred, sixty, four days of every year telling their kids not to take candy from strangers precisely because of might be poisoned. Then, give the thumbs up to taking snacks from every house in the neighborhood on Halloween, and that's so true and it also calls to mind the whole idea of like when we re under it, we were told not to talk to strangers online and not to get in cars with strangers, and now we literally use the Internet to summon strangers to get in their cars yet. So. Weird. It's crazy. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five Joel Best, who's a professor of sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware publishing article that reviewed reports and press coverage of candy tampering in the United States between nineteen, Fifty, eight to nineteen eighty-four during the search he found a report as early as nineteen fifty nine where children were falling ill after a California dentist named. William. Shine had distributed four hundred fifty candies laced with laxatives. Two Children Jesus thirty of these children were actually affected by candy tampering and he was later charged with outrage of public decency and quote unlawful dispensing of drugs for a dentist. A dentist, a nine, hundred, sixty, four in New York a forty, seven year. Old Woman named. Helen feel was. Annoyed by the Halloween custom of handing out candy to children especially to children who she felt deserve to be given free candy for she handed out bags of treats including ant poison and dog biscuits while when she was confronted about her actions she said, she was doing it as a joke and only gave the items kid she felt were too old to be trick or treating. Is later reported that she was admitted to the State Hospital for mental observation. Good. God right. You don't know what their issues and why they're treating, and even if they don't have an issue like who fucking cares don't be so stingy. Yeah. Like would you want them taking part in egging in toilet paper toilet paper people's houses or would you like them going door to door and get some candy? Just let them go home with bags of candy and then do whatever they're going to do at the house. They're not gonNA come back at midnight to your house. They've if you give him dog biscuits. Yeah. It's like you just set yourself up for some mischief right in one thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, Toronto police had discovered razor blades and noodles and Halloween apples. The footage found in the CBC Archives Showed Police Displaying Candy that was supposedly poisoned in nineteen seventy, five year old boy named Kevin Dotson from Detroit died after supposedly eating heroin laced candy diseases. After news media outlets had a field day with telling all parents to dispose of their children's hard earned cash flowing treats. It was later discovered that the parents of the child were trying to hide the true events led to his death apparently the uncle of the boy. had a heroin stash in his home and the little boy had gotten into it and ingested a capsule filled with heroin. The parents sprinkled heroin on the boys Halloween candy after he had died as a cover up to protect the boy's uncle God. But that also kind of reminds me of the the thing that goes around of Lake don't watch out people are putting edibles in your candidate and like no nobody's giving you hundreds of dollars of drug senior kids. In two thousand and Minnesota a forty nine year old man named James Joseph Smith was charged with felony for tampering with candy after a fourteen year old boy was pricked with a needle after biting into a candy bar. Lou. He apparently had put needles into snickers bars and handed them out on Halloween. Night. He was charged with one count of adultery in substance with the intent to cause harm illness or death new four other boys were found to have the needle lace snicker Bar, but the only one boy was harmed. In Two thousand sixteen in Nova Scotia a twelve year old boy was injured when he reached into his candy bag and was cut by a razor blade poking out of a kick cap arc. In two thousand, seventeen multiple reports come out of Ontario Canada where eleven year old girl underwent surgery at U. ship it into recess peanut Butter Cup containing a metal object although it was unclear if this was a result of candy tampering or a manufacturing incident. And other eleven year old boy was also reported to have received a Tutsi roll containing melatonin pill before. Tone of all things so. Yes. So harmless but just go to sleep in two thousand, nineteen in Connecticut thirty seven year old Jason Racks was arrested and held on a two hundred fifty thousand dollar bond after the parents of at least two trick or treaters found razors in their children's candy bags. He was charged with risk of injury to a minor reckless endangerment and interfering with police officer apparently did not go quietly when arrested and he also stated that the razor blades were accidentally spilled into the Cannibal for boxer razors who just happened to have next to it. Yes. Yep Yeah I totally believer like you do a later unrelated incident involved someone handing out THC laced gummy candies in their Halloween trick or treaters. Each of the bags contained colorful gummy cubes each packed with ten milligrams of THC. It was stated that it was unknown if this was intentional or from might have been an unintentional oversight by the person handing out the treats but the packaging was obvious enough that it shouldn't be consumed by children Marcos is probably high end didn't notice it air probably high and just in the bag knows because there's pictures of it and that looks like little gummy little gummy bear bags. Yeah. So again, the joke comes up though that nobody's going to willingly hand over yet. They're edibles. Yeah. At the conclusion of Joel Best Research. So get it only went from nine, hundred, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and a lot of these cases. I, told you about were in the two thousands So, this was his conclusion with his research at the conclusion of Joel Best Research into candy tampering incidents. He concluded that the vast majority of reported about seventy five percent who were either hoaxes conducted by children or their parents or didn't result in serious injury interesting. He also stated that contemporary legends are ways that society expresses anxiety and urban legends like Halloween Sadism could've stemmed from societal grievances like nineteen, eighty, two with the cyanide laced tylenol incident in. CHICAGO? The September eleventh terrorist attacks and subsequent Anthrax scare and of course now with Yeah. which actually plays into what you were saying. Devil's night about the depression and the war and how people just kind of like did what they did on Devil's night as a reprieve or as Cathartic. Occurrence. Yeah. So yeah, and that a lot of these urban legends Kinda just stemmed from people just having so much anxiety about the world in the world's problems. Yeah. Yeah. He has stated quote is it possible that someone maliciously passes out treats with the intent of harming children at random of course but this raises the question why they're usually aren't multiple reports from the same area effectively saying that the urban legend is just that nothing more than a hoax or scary story to tell her on time we're anxieties already

Dallas-based Southwest Airlines to stop blocking middle seats in December
"Airlines says it will no longer block the middle seat on planes starting December I leaving just Delta and Alaska keeping those seats empty. Here's Tom Costello.

But with new research suggesting it's safe to fly southwest says it will sell every available seat starting December. First American and united are already filling middle seats. Delta plans to do.

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants
"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate. And again, the idea is the long leave the money and means completely tax free for ten years out of step seven years you pay are you're eighty five percent excuse but I know that that number surprises me would you say this this this one, hundred, billion, his far more than was estimated when the legislation was passed. No I think it's probably rolling out slower than A lot of folks had hoped and as you can imagine, the vast majority of those deals that have been done thus far has been around real estate and real estate redevelopment certainly in the healthcare sector I think we're still the only firm out here. That's a healthcare focus opportunities on fund it. You know it we've been the only ones to my knowledge. So we're you know we're granted here, but we have yet even break a billion, but we're that's our goal.

What Are SPACs and Should You Invest in Them?
"Now, why do spags exist? A primary reason is the reverse mergers that occur was back with a publicly traded company purchasing a private company is in some ways simpler and easier way for private companies to become publicly traded compared with doing their own initial public offering. One Reason, the appetite for IPO's varies. There are some times where markets are more receptive to IPO's, and that's when a lot of private companies startup companies want to go public. Other Times not so much with a back. It's already public. and. So it's a way for a private company to become public without having to go through the road shows and much of the paperwork and legal hassle of going public. Another reason is often when a startup goes public doesn't initial public offering they lock up period for existing shareholders. It's not necessarily great press for a newly public company to have its founders selling a lot of their shares. With us back, they have the cash already raised and it's easier for founders and other principles of the private company to be able to liquidate more of their shares in the company. The other thing with initial public offering is often times money is left on the table. The underwriters try to price the initial public offering at ten to fifteen percent discount to the fair value of the company. But what that price is very difficult to determine and oftentimes after the initial public offering in the first few hours the IPO jump significantly in price, which means the private company didn't get that money that was money that was trading in the secondary market. It wasn't money that flowed to that private company is part of that public offering. With specs, there's a negotiated price. So the private company knows what they're getting. They know what the valuation is and so they potentially can get more money. How then do specs work? Well specs also need to raise capital so they do an initial public offering. It's usually combined with one common share plus a warrant or a fraction of a warrant, and what a warrant is gives the holder the right to buy more stock at a fixed price at a later date. It's an incentive for SPAC holders to potentially get more shares of the company wants that target is identified. The initial public offering is help for the back and at least eighty, five percent of the proceeds needs to go into an escrow account for future acquisitions. In practice, it's closer to ninety seven percent of the proceeds with three percent held in reserve for underwriting fees for the initial public offering operating expenses for this back to cover due diligence cost legal accounting et CETERA. Most of the money goes into this escrow account, which is then invested in government bonds. So before the acquisition, it's fairly risk free investment. Most of the time, the specs are issued at A. Price of ten dollars per share. In theory, it should stay about ten dollars per share because it's just an escrow account invested in government bonds and shareholders of this they don't know what the potential acquisition target will be. In practice, we're seeing specs sell for more than the IPO price because holders believe the management team of back is going to identify a very attractive company that will be profitable to the SPAC shareholders. So sometimes, they can bid up the price of this back. For example, that back that pershing square bill ackman's company came out with July is trading about twenty percent above its IPO price. The specs sponsors have a specified period to identify a potential target. Typically it's about two years and if they're not able to identify an acquisition and close an acquisition, then the trust is liquidated and the money in escrow account is return his shareholders. If the back sponsors do identify potential target firm, then they make an announcement, it's called the announcement date. Then the back shareholders are notified that there is a potential acquisition target. At that point that's back sponsors perform additional due diligence negotiate a structure of the acquisition. The SEC has to review the terms of the acquisition because the private company will be made public. And then there's a proxy vote for the shareholders of this back and they are deciding to issues. Whether they approve the acquisition or disprove, they don't want to Spec to go forward with it. The. Second thing that they are voting on whether they wanted to liquidate their shares in this back they have an opportunity to get out at the net asset value of the trust, which is the value held in the escrow account divided by the number of shares. Outstanding. If more than fifty percent of the shareholders approved the acquisition and less than twenty percent of the shareholders vote for liquidation. Then the transaction is approved and the target firm is listed on Stock Exchange. If more than fifty percent, approve it but more than twenty percent want their money back. Then this back is also liquidated.
How to Find Inspiration in Doubt
"Hello and welcome to another episode of the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John Jansen, my guest today is Carol. She is the founder and CEO of hint water a flavored water brand she founded in two thousand and five. He's also the author of a new book called. Daunted overcoming doubts and doubters. So thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. So in your bio I, read that you were one of the I don't know about original. You've spent some time at AOL. My father-in-law still hasn't AOL account and he thinks he's he thinks it's the Internet that AOL's. That's I I met. So my real question though is, do you still have any of those CD's? You. Know what I do have a couple of the CD is that I kept and I have a few. AOL Jackets Memorabilia that I stuck in a plastic bin. For. can't can't throw that away I. Mean it was a great time. I mean it it's a you know it's sort of an iconic brand that really Steve Case. Bill Right. There were a lot of people there and I played a part in building out the e commerce and You know there were a lot of people that basically felt like. Was the only place to shop. I mean, we were kind of a very enclosed safe place where you could go and You know I really fortunate opportunity to help build out I always viewed it as like a virtual mall and so I would I would like actually. Study Mall's people would ask like, how do you not like bring in Lake J. crew and into. Building out the small and I'm like I go down to the Stanford Mall and actually figure out what other stores are sitting there. Do you know Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom's and some of the others and and that's essentially what we were doing and A community for people. It's funny too because and and we'll get look into the book but I think it's fascinating because it was really it was really a closed place originally got AOL and it wasn't the same as getting to a website that you could. Then just you know punt go somewhere else for a long time it was a very much a contained. As. You said, yeah, and it was also a place for brands to really reinvent themselves I. Mean I remember there was this one catalogue company that we were dealing with called celebration fantastic and pretty small catalogue and and They weren't doing great on the service I mean they were up against like some big guys they weren't getting the promotion. So I remember Valentine's Day rolled around round one day and You know they had this product that was like a chocolate sauce and and they were like we have this idea that we want to do one of your pop ups, those pop-ups screens come. and. They and they called it a better than sex chocolate entrepreneur and and you know people went crazy over it and and so I think it was like it was the first place where you know you could really reinvent yourself in this new channel by showcasing certain products that you have and I mean their sales just off of that product were millions of dollars and just it was absolutely insane but it was really the first place where I saw that you could build brands you know in a non traditional way which you know frankly I go back to our business, my my main business hint. My my day job, you know we fifty five percent of our business is direct to consumer and a world where Soda Is. You know that's just not the way that. Are Sold I mean if anything if they are sold online, it's through an Amazon but it's not through their own site and so I think it's it just little examples like that on my journey make me believe and make me think like how can we just do things? How can we try and how can we do things a little bit different and ultimately better. So today hint comes in twenty players if people aren't familiar with it sparkling and caffeinated. It's a non alcoholic beverage, one of the maybe the largest independent non alcoholic beverage in the world hundred. This is estimated I haven't looked at your books, a hundred and forty million dollars or so in yearly sales, two hundred employees and no famous investors involved in the company, right? That's ten today. Did you start hint to solve a problem or disrupted industry. a little bit of both. Actually you know it's I think back on the journey and you know I call myself an accidental entrepreneur because I wasn't a typical. I'M GONNA go and work for myself or I'm going to be an entrepreneur one day My Dad had actually kind of been frustrated entrepreneur and side a large company He had developed a brand that you may know called healthy choice and inside of Armor Food Company, and then ultimately they were acquired by Conagra but I i. so I had a little bit of learning working for him but I think also when I. Had grown up and tack and in many ways and being at AOL before I decided to start this company and while I, was. Really trying to solve a health problem for myself after I had had three children I wanted to lose the baby weight that I had put on and. Develop terrible adult acne I realized after looking at everything that I was putting all the food I was putting into my body that there's diet. Soda was had more ingredients in it than like I mean I I I talk about it now as I. Cared more about what I put in my car than what I put into my own body and I thought like why is that and a whole story around labels like Diet and you know there's low fat and vitamins and things like that that equated to health in my head but you weren't alone in that address. After switching from my Diet Soda over to Plain. Water, I two and a half weeks lost twenty four pounds got rid of my acne God my energy back and I said Gosh, there's just like a lot of people who are trying to figure out obviously how to get healthier and it's not. Right and and. Like if they could just actually enjoy water again, then they you know we might not have the brand new thing that cropped up about the time I was starting hint type, two diabetes you know things that are. Really. Dangerous chronic right and I thought they need to ultimately enjoy water maybe they need to do other things but that's a first step and so that's when I. Recognize that I didn't like water I aspired to be a water drinker and I start slicing bruton throwing in water and that's when. You know I thought I'm not even sure this is a company I think it's like A. I I don't know I think it's a product I'd worked for companies before right and so when I decided to take this product to whole foods and my local whole foods in San Francisco friends were would come over my house and I tell them. You know it started this little thing I wasn't even calling in a company and they're like that's so cool that you start a company I'm like is it a company? I don't know if it's a company like I have three skews like I'm not sure it's actually a company. But. That's when I really realized that I'm starting something that could actually help bigger range of people get healthier disrupted industry that doesn't care about health back. Then there was nobody calling companies mission driven I was mission driven from day one because I really wanted to help a lot of other people.

Early voting in the battleground state of Wisconsin you can tell from the footage it was chilly, and yet we saw long lines at busy polling places. We're also just forty eight hours from the final big set piece event of the campaign. The last presidential debate which will go on with the rule change. The candidates microphones will be muted while their opponent gives an initial two minute answer to each topic. Of course, they made that necessary change because the president is so compulsively antisocial that he cannot abide by just the normal give and take of conversation and debate the debate. This Thursday is hugely important for president trump because when you're far down the polls as he appears to be a chance to change the trajectory. That said it is also, of course, serious risk because we saw what happened last time. I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar but you I. I want to make sure. I. I WanNa make your accident. Can you let them finish her now? He doesn't know how to do that T- as. You pick. It. Be Surprised. By the wrong night at the wrong times and you agreed with Sanders. Valid is no manifesto. Mr Number two just lost the left number two. You just lost the left. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan. If -solutely. Forgotten. How horrible that was my God. I put it out. My Mary. Well, that did not go over. Well, not only pulling immediately show the president lost the debate. If you look at, say the five thirty polling average that first debate on September twenty ninth and trump's coronavirus diagnosis, which, of course happened just a few days. Later they're kind of an inflection point after which he loses three more points. But here's the craziest thing during the turning the debate into this unwatchable cringe inducing boorish display actually arguably helped donald trump because keeping the focus on how just outrageously unlikable the president is is better than focusing on his actual policy positions as compared to Joe. Biden because he is even further behind on the issues. I, mean keep in mind. This is a very divided country right now we know that we know that polarization pretty much rules everything around us, and so a lot of the time when you ask voters about any specific issue, the results basically converge on whether or not you like Donald Trump right? And that is why this new pulling out today from New York, times colleges so striking. They asked voters about a whole bunch of issues. Some that are major news stories right now like for instance, another covert rescue package on that the polling shows an incredible national consensus in favor of a new two trillion dollar stimulus. Now, that comes as we learned today that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the White House not to agree we deal was speaker Nancy Pelosi out the election because he's concerned about dividing his Republican conference. Voters overwhelmingly support a mask mandate fifty, nine to thirty, nine percent after watching the president who of course discounted the masks for months and made fun of people wore them fall ill with the corona virus and spend three days in the hospital. The Obama Administration, signature, legislative achievement, the affordable care act, which, of course. Trump back. Lawsuit is attempting to destroy right now in the Spring Gordon arguments week after election day that also comes out ahead of fifty five to forty. As does Joe Biden's current platform his plan to add a public health insurance option it would auto enroll people into it if they didn't have insurance and that has a whopping sixty, seven percent of voter support again. Twenty, five percent oppose those are big big spreads then. There are the issues that are less front of mine right now or at least getting less covers the climate crisis, for example. It's not exactly the top issue among national political talkers. The moment were really either the campaigns, and that's somewhat understandable the pandemic and the resulting economic devastation and yet. When you ask voters if they think a Biden administration should invest two trillion dollars in clean energy and other ways to help reduce the effects of climate change and reduce carbon emissions by a margin of forty points. They see s forty points on these signature tent pole. Climate Plan of the behind campaign in a country polarized is remarkable. Remember in the past debates, it was very clear that both trump and pence thought that fracking was going to be one of their best issues. It was like their their secret weapon I mean they were just talking of love fracking Americans love fracking. Let's FRAC every last Frankel Incheon this fracking country and it even put Joe Biden Kamla Harrison the defensive promising over and over that they book well, we don't have a thing with we're not gonna Ban fracking everyone knows fracking obviously track. Well, when it comes down to it, it's not even true. It's a wash. Voters are evenly split on one of the trump campaign's best issues thing they think is their wedge. No the fracking debate is actually largely about one crucial state Pennsylvania, where natural gases they may traders she but guess what a majority of registered voters in Pennsylvania oppose fracking according to CBS new Newspoll over the summer. So Donald Trump's ongoing negligent malignant incompetent managing the pandemic the disastrous conditions that the country eight million people fall into poverty and trump's personal odious nece are obviously the big things driving much of this campaign.

The race to a zero-emission world starts now
"We are all here today because the climate countdown has begun. And we are nowhere near where we need to be. Science tells us we must lead global heating to one point five degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. We are on track facility grease at least. Billions of people are all already suffering from our failure to act. Climate Disruption due to our dated addiction to fossil fools. He's causing unprecedented wildfires more intense frequent cyclones, floods, droughts, and other weather extremes. Boksic air pollution is choking our major cities and harming our health. And bow diversity on landon season the growing pressure. No country's immune from the climate crisis. But in every country, it is the poorest and most vulnerable were hardest hit despite having lists to cause the problem. Over the past twenty, five years reach ten percent of the global population as being responsible for more than half of all carbon emissions and the poorest fifty percent were responsible for seven percent of emissions. Ranking justice sending equality of this scale is a cancer. If we don't take now. Sensory may be one of humanity's lust. The covid nineteen pandemic has laid bare the fundamental injustice inequality of our societies. Upheaval of these pandemic presents an opportunity to chart a new course when it can address every aspect of the climate crisis at on. Easterly shows that when we grab such moments we succeed. We can build a safer fairer more resilient worlds, but we need to move quickly. That is why I'm urging government. So take six climate positive actions to recover better together. Invest in Green, jobs. Not. allowed. Polluting Industries especially coal. And fossil fuel subsidies and the price on carbon. They climate risk into account in all financial and policy decisions work together in solidarity and most important leave. No one behind. These is the course of action that thousands of these city states. Regions. University isn't investors are already choosing by committing to net zero emissions by twenty fifty at the latest. Data moving to protect people and planet's momentum is building. Cities and regions with the carbon footprint greater than the United States and companies with revenues of more than eleven point four, trillion US dollars. If now committee to net zero emissions by two, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. That's double. The number from when this initiative was launched at the Climate Action Summit in two, thousand, nine, nine. Likewise investors managing over four trillion dollars have joined the race to zero. This number also more than doubled since the initiative was first launched at the same time. But it is still necessary for governments to create the tax and regulatory frameworks that will further stimulate climate action by the private sector unions announced plans to cut its emissions at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty and chief Clem neutrality by twenty. Fifty. And China as announced its intention to become carbon neutral before twenty sixty. And count on these and other mainly meters to present before cop twenty, six concrete plans and policies that will bring the world carbonaro throwing divide twenty-fifty. We must make sure that each country each city company bank and Interest Organization as a transition plan to reach zero net emissions. We also need to see much greater efforts to build resilience in vulnerable countries which to cause climate change, but they are the worst impacts. In the coastal Delta's the islands of the Pacific and the billion and the islands such as the efficacy trial region, we must have people of that to climate impacts as they recover from covid. Nineteen. I call on developed countries to meet their commitment to mobilize one hundred billion US dollars ear for mitigation adaptation and resilience in developing countries. We must work to create the conditions needed for a massive mobilization of funds. Also from financial institutions and private investors, we must keep building climate ambition. On the fifth anniversary of the agreement in December leaders from government business and civil society will gather online to do just that. We need to kick start the race to the Glasgow Climate Conference in Twenty Twenty. One To those who have already joined the race. I. Applaud you. But they also asked you to the Mar and much faster. You have raised your ambition and your commitment. We need you now to also raise your voices and push governments to do better. Especially, those we meet the most. To those yet to join my message is simple. We can only win the race to zero together. So I urge you. To get on boards, the countdown has begun.
All of Teslas 2021 Model Year Updates
"Everybody, Rob Power here, and today we haven't exciting episode. We have updates from Tesla on almost every single vehicle in the lineup. So we're going to go through exactly what has changed because there's a lot here to keep track up. So tell normally doesn't make these broad sweeping changes across the lineup they sort of just update each vehicle as they have changes to make. This then is pretty unique for Tesla and it does seem like they're making these changes right at the same time that they're changing the model year. So even though on tussles website, they don't necessarily designate what model you're. The vehicle is the vehicle identification number does still indicate that and from those Vince we've been able to see. That Tesla has just now started producing those twenty twenty one model year vehicles over the last couple of weeks we'll talk a little bit more about that later but let's get right into the changes here. Predominantly, the changes have come to the model three but again, there are updates to all the vehicles which every captain a chart here. If you are watching on video, we'll go out of the traditional order here of as three X Y and switch it up. We'll start with the model three. So the standard range plus originally had a two hundred and fifty mile range that has now been increased by thirteen miles two, hundred, sixty, three the long range version saw the most significant bump for the model. Going from three hundred, twenty, two miles before now to three hundred and fifty three miles of range and the performance jumped up by sixty miles from two hundred, ninety, nine miles before now to three hundred fifteen for the standard range plus and the performance that's about a five percent increase in range. But for the long range, it's actually about nine and a half percent. Unfortunately at this point in time, we don't know what is driving that significant variance between the long range, all wheel drive, and the other trims were just going to have to wait and see once he's actually start being delivered to customers aside from the range. The long range and performance versions are now quicker zero to sixty. The Long Range non-performance has been updated from four point four seconds before to four point two seconds now, and the performance has gone from three point two seconds to sixty down to three point one as for other changes we've talked about quite a few of these earlier this week about the big one here is the heat pump house actually able to confirm that the new version of the model three does have the heat pump. This was just from one source at Tesla. So it is possible that that source was misinformed but from my knowledge, the model three now does have a heap like the model why that should improve the efficiency especially in colder climates we know that the model three has Now been updated from chrome to have black trim instead a power trunk. There is a new steering wheel electric is saying that the steering wheel is heated I have not seen that confirmed anywhere else though. So I think that's a question mark at this point in time, there's new updates. So the air wheels and the sport wheels have been updated to a new look, and then the performance model three has been updated to the Uber. Turbine wheels that are currently on the model y though on the model three, they're an inch smaller at just twenty inches rounding things out are I believe updated mirrors though I think this happened earlier sometime around September to add a heating element to the side mirrors. And then I believe there's also now an auto dimming rear view mirror for the model three. There has been updates to the windows apparently for better soundproofing, and then of course, the updated center console. So the fingerprint trap that was the piano black glossy console is no more at least for the model three does still remain on the Model Y. so speaking of the Monowai, let's move on to the updates there these are just range focused. So the long range model why has improved by ten miles from previous EPA rating of three hundred, sixty miles to a new rating of three hundred and twenty six miles three percent increase there, and then the performance model why has gone from two hundred ninety? One miles up to three. So twelve miles there or an additional four percent we'll come back to that for a little bit more analysis but just around things out for the Model S. The long range range actually stayed the same at four hundred and two miles. So no change there. But the performance had a significant increase from three hundred, forty, eight miles before up to three, hundred, Eighty, seven, thirty, nine miles incremental or eleven point two percent of course, the other big news on the Model S. This week has been the price cut. So the long range has been reduced by fifty five hundred dollars while the performance reduced by three thousand as for the X. No price cut here so. There is a pretty big spread now between the US on the ex but the long range version did see a range increase as we talked about earlier this week when we had seen that, Maroni sticker from a new delivery, it's gone from three hundred, fifty one miles before now up twenty miles to three hundred, seventy, one about six percent increase, and then the performance seeing similar level of increase to the performance model s from three Oh five before now up to three, hundred, forty, one about a twelve percent increase or thirty six miles. So to the best of my knowledge that captures all the changes across the entire lineup. But of course, as these vehicles start to be delivered, we may still. Uncover some other minor changes but to summarize all this, if we look at the average here across the entire lineup, not using any waiting by sales or anything like that destroyed up across the board previously tussles average range three, hundred, twenty miles per vehicle. Now it's three, hundred and forty. So a twenty mile increase for the average vehicle tesla sales or about six percent. So how is Tesla able to achieve all this? Well, back in July? We had heard that Panasonic had already developed technology that had resulted in a more than five percent increase in energy density on Tussles twenty-one seventy battery cells and Reuters reported that they would quote start converting lions at Gaggenau Vada from September so I think now. We're mid October were starting to see the results of those updates in the lineup, and we're also seeing improvements and s an ex and those were to use the eighteen sixties from. Japan not the twenty one seventies from Geena. Vada but if Panasonic was able to improve the twenty-one seventies while they were probably able to improve the eighteen, six fifty as well I think it's tough to find another explanation for the roughly six percent increase in the Model X. range other than updated cells. But the confusing part is that zero percent increase on the long range model s remember though when the Model S. increased from somewhere around three hundred, eighty miles up to that four hundred to rating the model extra. At all. So really it's just catching up with the previous model s updates. So I wonder if maybe Panasonic had been testing an earlier version of that new battery cell with the five percent energy density increase in just the Model S. but then it wouldn't explain why the performance model which would presumably have the same pack as the long range is seeing a similar increase. On the model here as the Model X.

You do your own internal polling. You see your own internal polling shows shows this, and you're open and transparent to the candidates about it. Here's how we're doing it. And if one of them complains fine, but you just you, you can't have why it's I love it because it's going to be zoo, but I if it was my political party, I'd say, no, I want, I want it much more focused, even from the beginning, you know, you look at the overall impact of the debates, and there is some impact, but the greater impact right now, social media, that's where you do your stumping. That's where you gain energy. It's exactly how. AFC got elected, actually, the that kind of campaigning is what is paramount. The debates you're, you're more and more. You're competing for the attention in anything in any broadcast, whether it's sports or anything else. The, the attention span of any given viewer right now in our society has dwindled greatly. So, you, you look at this, and if they're going to they're not even gonna break ten minutes, each collectively or totally on, on their speaking time. Then what are you doing? Well, and if you look at it because I know someone complain we'll wait a minute. I'm pulling higher in Iowa.

Again, that which goes back to the handshake, it's almost like it's an obligation here. Feel obligated? Okay, fine. Seem fair and then we're going to get tougher as we go along. Right.

Once we bring something under our dominion, we say, well, I control that I own that I have that that's official and move on. Our wife our kids our job, our health, our families our parents. We, we have a tendency to say, well, I've conquered that salesman. It's like taking for granted. The ninety five percent of your business. You already do have in hopes of adding the five percent marginal. And you don't appreciate what about the clients that have been with you. What about the folks that were with you during the tough times, and it's unfortunate that sometimes we have to have an adjustment like that to stop realize you know what? I've got it really good at home. I've got somebody really special in my life instead of worrying about all the things. I'm not be grateful.

"Those built be active documents to help you get the most out of your financial life is critical and what about for a married couple making sure that both spouses are actively engaged in all interactions with financial planner. So we are all very busy. We divide and conquer and we have to respect that. But what the mistake is is we aren't inclusive. So if the man or the woman are taking one's got the investment plan in one has the daily financial household management. We have to talk to each other to make sure the right and left hand know what they're doing when we get disconnected. And and don't have a sense of are we on track for our financial security your personal definition of financial security, which may be different than your spouse's. That disconnect can then create some distrust, not only in your relationship, but with the financial advisory team, you're working with. It's okay to have different motivations in goals. But you have the middle ground, and you have to talk to each other even unpleasant things have to come forward in the process. You know, it's really interesting. I think that that that definition is different ninety five percent of the time the financial security for the husband is different than what financial security is for the wife. And so what it reminds me of is let's say that a couple wants to build. A new house and they're going to build it from scratch. Well, obviously, you don't just go by and take a snapshot of a house from your phone or smartphone, or whatever and take that picture over to Home Depot and say, hey, this is the house I want give me the materials that I need to buy. No, you've got to start out with an architect. And right now, what couple would allow only one person to go speak to that architect and tell them what they want the house to look like because I'm going to guarantee you that there's things in the house that the husband wants that are totally different than things in the house that the wife wants, and there's some of the things that the wife wants the husband doesn't even care about and the husband wants to wipe doesn't care about. But they have to come together talk about there's going to be compromised because they're both going to live there when you're talking to a financial planner. There's things that each of you want that are different than the other. And if you don't both voice those things, and they're not listened to from the financial planning perspective. And you don't talk about those in reached the common ground. Then you're never going to be able to have that one ideal financial life that you really want that to me is what the heart of financial planning. Is all about it is understanding just like an architect needs understand what you want to build the financial planner needs to understand what is your financial life..
