Why Dr. Kumar is Changing The Wellness Game
"Welcome back once again, see the outcomes, rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. I really WANNA. Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. Et, CETERA. I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. Think saw glad to be here. So Rajiv, what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? I think that was pretty comprehensive. Just, a little bit about virgin pulse. You know what? I think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. We are an employee wellbeing company. We work with large employers all around the world, and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. It really is about how do we help people be? Healthier, happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, you can imagine some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business, and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. So strong, and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well, I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, there's so much. We can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. What would you say right now at at at Virgin? Pulse. Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. Well, I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk, your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, and so we've said is, is there a scientist out there? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. Equals motivation times, ability times a trigger, and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. First of all, they have to have the motivation to do it. Second is they have to have the ability to do it, and a third is you have to trigger them. To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, well, motivation is hard to change. Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. You can change the ability to perform the action, and so the idea is if you take a behavior like washing your teeth and you break it down to the smallest tiniest thing that somebody could possibly do like floss one tooth and you ask them to do that they can actually do. That very easily, it doesn't take a lot of motivation is very quick to do, and if they do that and you celebrate the fact that they did it, you can help them build what we call success momentum, and then they're going to feel better about going to the next step and try something harder and so in our entire approach to behavior change, we break behaviors down into their simplest most basic action we ask people to do that would trigger then and then when they do it we. Reward them make them successful. We give them social status. They might get some kind of points or some kind of reward, and then we ask them to do something harder the next time around and stuff feedback loop that builds up momentum, and it changes behavior in a very sustainable way in a very habitual way, which is really the key to behavior changes creating habits.
Favorite TV Shows (MM #3469)
"The Maisonette with Kevin Nation. I spend a lot of time on the internet. Okay, probably too much time on the internet, but it's amazing what you can find when reading through Newsreaders. I mean you're going on with my credit or quora and just looking for information looking for details. And the one thing I keep saying has a lot of TV shows are constant topics of conversation and they're not t shows that are currently airing new episodes It's usually when they go into syndication or when they go into a streaming service like a Netflix or something like that all the time whenever I'm looking online. I see people talking about shows like Seinfeld which has been off the air for twenty years but shows like the office home parks and rec in The Big Bang Theory, they're always hot topics. They're always questionnaires or so on the other day. They ranked the smartest of actual actors on The Big Bang Theory based on their education and that's just really a click bait kind of off because really do you care if Johnny Galecki is smarter than Jim Parsons or Kaley Cuoco. Does it really matter in the big picture? If you ever deal with radio people you can talk to them about the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati forever and the most people doesn't even matter wage.
"hot topic" Discussed on Reality TV RHAP-ups: Reality TV Podcasts
"Yes do you think the jellyfish be the Olympic Gold Mountain? No. The jellyfish is my second most likely for an Olympian. There's another person that I think is more likely to be an Olympian and it's not the jellyfish the Olympia. The athlete part was a bit of a bit of a reach for me from the jellyfish. But I like jellyfish and I think I'm going to pick not tell me why I'm right. Now I like this pick. It looks like a jellyfish went to hot topic and came out with this outfit in some a compliment. A look. I, shopped. I was in middle school and probably high school also donate donate a the faces a little. Kind of weird looking FERMI and league it looks a little smushed somehow. But regardless I still really like the outfit I, love the platform shoes. They're so cool. This is such a cool costume I love that it's me on and I that head thing must be really really heavy. So that's my only concern for her as a performer because the actual costume itself is really sleek and simple. So hopefully, that will allow. Her to perform. Well, you know, of course, apart from the boots, but it's like leggings and then just like a jacket, but the head looks giant. So I'm hoping that that won't be a hindrance to her and I agree I mean it's also kind of a very generic clue. So I think this is somebody is going to be going deep and I'm. The only reason I'm mad at the pig is because he took her from me. Oh Really Yeah sniped Nice. Thank you. Okay. Well, all right. Do you have any guesses? No I have no guesses I think it's I. think it is someone who is musically inclined though. Whether, it'd be a rapturous or otherwise.

LG offers a taste of what 5G looks like in South Korea
"LG Like every other mobile player is hyped up for five G.. What's the next generation technology in its home country of South Korea. I'm ready, Chang and this is your daily charge. With me as LG. Chief Technology. Officer. Ip Park. I WanNa talk about five gene. That was the topic we discussed back in at C. S. IN VEGAS. LG was an early adopter of five G.. Getting you getting that next generation while technology into your phones pretty early I'm curious what the overall reception for five has been like for consumers and consumer specifically. Five G. is not fully there yet although five G. was launched new, it'll take a couple of years for the entire infrastructure subject to be five, g.? So we are getting more and more content more and more devices in in five G.. Five. G. Phones are already out there. Everybody's using five phones, but the technical difference between Ltn five phones is very minimal currently because content is lagging behind but. Things like our dual screen phone is being well received in are launching new tax phone factors. Afon in the very near future stay tuned but also I think this may be this coroner. A situation will help will be utilized to sort of accelerate development five G. applications more because people need more immersive. You'll need more online experience at at either at home in a mobile or in the car catching in you know you talked about everyone having five phones It's perfect Segue 'cause I wanna ask about what the five experiences like in. South Korea. Because in the US you know it's A little scattershot it's not consistent. Right? You've got your verizon with very fast millimeter wave five G. in a few blocks in cities around the country. You know you've got that that sort of low ban nationwide network that t mobile nineteen have that that isn't much faster than for not what what is it like what five g. like in Seoul and what is the service like because i? Think I get the sense that is far more broadly adopted over there. Yeah. Five G. services corneas very good. As you can guess, creates a small country in very dense. So we have. Service towels everywhere. So, there's virtually virtually every place has connectivity and five much faster here. So he can get more contents so we can do much more content instant intensive things here like you can. You can watch a baseball game in a much more immersive way using dual dual screen. You can play games, you know much more emergency ban so on and so forth. So create is a much better situation to utilize five G. than other much bigger countries where you have to feel filling the all the landscape. And you mentioned that there's not not quite the content that there yet but I. Guess, we're a year into five deployment. What different applications have arisen particularly in that market since it feels like the deployments much more mature. What? What are some of the different use cases you've seen? What five gene in Korean specifically. One applicant. No. So couple of applications have been very popular with of five g you know especially a dual screen phones is that. You can deploy multiple applications, use them saying at the same time without having to switch between screens, but also you can watch. TV. Very. immersive way. So on one screen, you can watch the game on screen. You can want you all the stats, all the baseball player or you can focus on a specific player at that moment. So. It's more personalized than regular sort of A. Flat Service envy trying to build to build more and more contents behind this. In terms of the potential applications. You talked about the idea of know watching gaming against Pacific angles it'd be more personalized. Are there any potential five APPs or use cases that excite you things that you wanna see people take five take advantage of with five hundred five G. is not just for the phones but it's for everything else as well and I think automotive is one area. Utilized Five G.. So maybe even more immediate applications in connected. Car Stan. Mobile phones. But. You know there are many features that could be implemented in. five phones, for example. There's something a technological V. to X. vehicle to infrastructure technology that future costs will have for safety in coordination with infrastructure in other cars. But also, this can be implemented in software as well. We have recently developed something called to based of V. to X., and this can be implemented into an APP so that when you carry a phony five G., you're basically carrying the fight a V. TO X. Capability. So you can interact with cars, the car coming around the corner it'll alert you or alert car so that you're you're more careful and there are many other types of potential applications. To go with this on a more specific Epeli type of experience will carling for your APP when you have your phone around on you have when you have all your car driving around you can. Go. There and pure prearranged. Purchasing arrangement a while you're driving while you're walking many the meaning of those types of use cases helping to developed right now. We talked about foldable foldable phones of the last couple of times we met and just curious. It was clearly a hot topic last year less. So now even though we're still seeing some foldable phones coming out, I'm just curious what your take is on. The phone will see any kind of foldable devices from algae in the near future. So I think that's time I did probably mentioned that we we've been experimenting with many different types of phone factor, a home practice for the phone. And definitely, there's a need for larger display in the future or multiple displaying future specially with the five G.. So you see some of new phone factored phones coming up in the very near future. Okay. Nice. Nicely vague. Next. Code. Couple of weeks. Next couple of weeks okay awesome. Well. Thank you Dr Par for your time. Really appreciate it. If you have any questions about lg or five G. His twitter at the daily charge, you read all LG coverage on C. dot com for the charm. Roger Chan thanks for listening.
Conversation with the head of mental health startup Frame Teletherapy
"Hey Candle. Thank you for coming onto the show they are having me. Yeah. It's certainly being a crazy period of time right now at the time of this recording, we're not only facing a pandemic, but also simultaneously a heatwave and wildfires here in California one could say is little bit much right now and in this little surprised that we're feeding a little bit more. Stressed and anxious than usual. I'm saying this because we couldn't have found a better time to record this podcast about Tele therapy and your business frame. Maybe you can tell us what frames all about. Yeah. So I am the CO founder and CEO Frame the mental wellness platform that makes it easier to connect with therapists mid different ways both in person and digitally we actually Offered to core services on our platform the first one is for people who I've never been therapy and just WANNA, learn a little bit more about it and for them we offer our digital discussions which are livestream conversations between licensed therapist and volunteer participants that you can watch anonymously from the comfort of your own home. So it's like a veteran or how should imagine. It. So basically, what we do is we wanted to create a way for people to see what happens in an actual therapy session. So it's completely free product. It's available to everyone in the country and these conversations mirror what a real therapy session would be like in real life. So we've on boarded in trained licensed therapists from all over the country they we pick different. Topics, and then we bring on volunteer participants. These are real people who share their real problems on camera and you can listen and we actually built a custom platform so that you can actually watch lives men. There's interactive tools where you can submit questions in therapist answers them for you at the end of the recession or if you WANNA watch on your own time. We have a content library of the past recorded sessions. Wow. That's great unlike just to give us an idea what what sorts of topics being discussed on their great asset because you again, I really wanted to create a product that sort of educates people not only on what happens in therapy the different types of therapies even work with also about the different topics and so. We really try to pick topics that are relevant to what's going on right now. So obviously, we launched actually during covid where a new startup and obviously it was a really hot topic right there to talk about working right home adjusting to life. We actually did a lot of topics around people who are losing their jobs during Cova did and now we shifted to. The black lives matter. Movement we we did a series on racial trauma and how it's affected different people from different perspectives, and now we've been really focusing of recently on burn out and how people are really sort of just feeling. So achieved and down about the current situation in the world in how you identify Burnett, and how you deal with that, right? Yeah I can. Totally imagine that with many of us actually working from home right now and not taking any vacation burn notice on the horizon for many of us exactly, and then we actually have a second service on a platform of for those that are ready to talk with therapist one on one we have a therapy matching service and we actually will match you as a therapist. Based on your personal needs. So you end you come onto our platform you answer ten questions we give you six options of therapist matches, facilitate free intro call. So you can call a couple of get a sense for me. Thank you connect with best and then you scheduled to our platform you do the video sessions or a platform and you pay for farm. So it's A one stop shop for therapy and how does like you matching algorithm matched me like what what do you like through those ten questions in how does that look actually on the therapist end? Yeah. So we spent a lot of time building out the matching algorithm. My co-founder sage grazer is a licensed therapist so that really helped but while we were building the product. We actually brought in about ten to twenty therapists and we interviewed them and we got a better sense for how they screen for clients in real life, and we use those inputs to help build our algorithm but I think another important factor of this is that you algorithms can't fully predict chemistry. So just like a dating APP, you go on multiple dates before you find. Your soulmate, and so we really wanted to create that experience as well. We're not gonNA just pick a therapist for you. So we really focused on getting the right types of therapists in front of you, and then we want to empower our users to pick the therapist and we're getting a lot of anecdotal feedback that saying I've actually called three or four of the. Therapists on the lesson. This one happened to be a college athlete and so was I. we really connected on that and those are just things that you're not gonna get an intake form on them out organically when you're having this conversation because it's really hard to judge a therapist just based on his profile resume, right? So I, I can totally imagine that you know approach. To Kinda Dede's a few therapists to find the right fit for me. Exactly and it's really about therapy is different than other doctors. You know when you're getting surgery, you kind of want to know where the doctor go to school and how many surgeries have been done when it comes to therapists. It's really about who do you feel most comfortable talking to I. Honestly. Couldn't even tell you where my therapist got her masters for around and you know I've been to some of the most you know world renowned therapists. I've waited six months to see them and you don't necessarily click with them. So it's really just about that. There is that sort of live interaction that you can. You can only feel for when you're talking to yourself rights.
Everyone is Cheating in Counter Strike
"Let's go over here to the scandal and drama going on here because it is not your typical cs topic a nude I feel like normally when we talk about Cs, it's happy thoughts. It's our feel-good place. We're talking tournaments we're talking big roster moves I thought this was behind us in the tier one scene. And it has been broken out like wildfire and it's definitely not the last of it where we are seeing coaches. Being banned left and right now with the scene. So to fill everyone in, the might not know there's a bug where there was a bug in the game that would allow a coach and correct me if I'm wrong here, newt, essentially the coach would sometimes like spawn in certain parts of the map and then could look around like three sixty see everything that's going on so that obviously the disadvantage or the advantage of this as you could see where the other team might be going and things like that. Correct. Basically. A Cypher Kim. Yeah right or South for ten. It's exactly like a cipher came from Valerie and yet it would spun you in a random spot. Sometimes, we saw happened in spawn so you can see what the opposing team was buying know which way they were splitting in how that would work. Sometimes, it was literally in the middle of the bombsite right and it just froze you overhead in gave you kind of full three, sixty view if you move your mouse around, you can see everything. Yeah and so it's been recently busted that a number of coaches have been taking advantage of this bug and now it's a hot topic. So let's just kind of. A go through this. So I guess the whole reason the started is zoo said peacemaker were the first to report the bug which has since been patched right. But then esl kind of started going back and like reviewing the tapes and films and things like that to see if anyone is taking advantage of this and now I will say this and I will give you credit specifically because you've said it multiple times on. The show if you don't think people have been and are still going to cheat in the online era of of e sports, you are ridiculously naive and I know a new you have said that in different words on the show before but now I I'm a believer I'm buying into your belief that of course, in one way or another, all these guys are going to find an edge whether that be cheating or not. Cheating is not only like aim hacking or wall hacking, right? Like that's speed hacking whatever the hacks that you see it's not just that that could easily pop up a twitch stream in have that on the monitor where they could be relayed information of economy. Right? You would know the economy, you will get a general idea of. You get a little bit more information than you obviously normally could. I'm. Not Saying it's. Everybody. Tries to find didn't edge. That's just the world of competitive sports whether it's traditional sport or needs for people try to find an edge in this seemed like one of the obvious ways it could be done now didn't help that counterstrike had a bug in the game that also allowed this to happen. Right. But at the end the day people knew it was their coach news, their players knew it was there and they allowed. It Tappan and they took advantage of it in man did we get a ton of evidence like on people take really I think we're just getting to the typically icebreaker I. think There is so much more floating down beneath that. We will get not even talking about tier two or tier three S. this was probably in occurrence in in most matches would be my guest but I think from even tier one we're really just. Starting to scope it out and find out what's happening. Stuff's even coming out today. Yeah. So some of the big ones here I think. From just a more recent standpoint, heroic the coach for heroic hundred. ENDED UP, getting busted for using it during the dream. Hack Masters Spring in ten rounds on one map. and. That's just what they've reported so far I can only imagine. He's done it then more reports on him now that also come out, it's happened more than as they're watching more film and again, these were just for esl sanctioned. Right so now you're having other organizations or other attorney or got. Going back and watching and reviewing their tapes right. So this is all just I mean it's just a giant web that's getting cast it out there now, people watching the film. So I just want to throw out this gentleman's name because he's really the one that kind of helped break everything by doing the legwork and that's meet you from ESL. Lewinsky might be pronouncing that right him in Steve doned went through fifteen hundred demos. It took them three weeks of basically each doing at twelve hours a day to go through all these demos to find stuff in I mean, look they. Not, only catching the ones that have just gotten band, but they're pushing more information out now for other demos at they're finding letting other event organizers know that, Hey, this was a bug. This is a timeframe has been going on in now we're seeing it from like what beyond the summit just came out and released their sanctions today. This is affecting road to Rio. Now because points situations have been messed up in. Teams have been eliminated that we'll talk about in a second but for heroic, it's a really big stain because they just came off of the win of Cologne people were looking at them and really a positive light right like that. Feel good time. Do you want to? Sets you WANNA know how fast life can come at you and edge if you go hundreds twitter account. His one, he has his two recent tweets. Heroic, second, best in the world two hundred has been suspected. He tweeted. Just like instantly he goes UA were second best in the world to I am now suspended like that's how fast life can hit you in this. In this world you've got a one year suspension right for for what he's done in. Again, there could be more coming down right like we haven't heard official rulings from valve yet on if they're going to take action on this or if they're just gonNa let the to's handle it. But yeah, the definitely be more I mean he he's getting a twelve month ban.
Are Social Media Friends Real?
"Doctor Bono welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. It's my pleasure to be here. Well, we're very excited. Obviously social media's everywhere social media's here to say, why do you think that it's such a hot topic? Well. I. Think. Part of the reason it's become a hot topic is because it has become so pervasive in the culture if you look at the stats from the Pew Research Organization or other groups that collect data on this in overwhelmingly large number of people are on social media and are using it frequently, and it's also something that is relatively new and so with something that has become so much a part of our culture in our day to day way of interacting with one another that has posed a question too many people of to what extent is this actually affecting us and is it having an? Impact on other things that are occurring such as increasing rates of depression and anxiety and other forms of mental distress. We know that both of those have been increasing simultaneously over the last decade and the question is well is one of them causing the other and I think a lot of people have become curious about that. One of the things that I always think about whenever these conversations crop up in the media is that it seems like every new thing is bad for us I remember when the Internet first started I'm that age so I remember before the Internet and then after the Internet so the Internet Starts at the first thing that everybody talks about. Oh. This is going to connect us like never before this wonderful, and then it only took a few months before everybody was like the Internet is horrible. There's it's just filled with pornography and fighting, and this was all before social media and then everybody hated the Internet. Now the Internet is back to being powerful and social media is what we hate. Do you think that this is just a trend? Just a theme that everything new at first is exciting and good, and then immediately becomes bad and then it will balance out. It's the nature of almost anything. In the world that nothing is entirely good or entirely bad and often what captures our attention initially is the novelty in the exciting parts and other really cool features of something. But inevitably, over time we come to realize that it also comes with some negative things. It's not used appropriately. So yeah, I. I do think that initially our attention is drawn to the positive things but it's just like anything else as you say with the internet or a hundred years ago or more wind cars I came onto the scene they were initially this really cool way to connect people and do your business more efficiently and more. Effectively, but we realized Oh wait a second. If cars are not used under the appropriate conditions and they procreate circumstances, they can actually be really harmful. So the solution has never been. Okay. Let's get rid of this thing. Let's get rid of the internet or let's get rid of cars but let's think about how to be wise consumers of this and I think that that is where we're at when it comes to social media I don't know of any psychologists were saying, let's get rid of social media but instead let's bring awareness to the fact that if it's not used correctly, it could have some harmful. Effects on us, and it's worthwhile for us to bring attention to those things I really like what you're saying there. No. One of the other themes that comes up all of these conversations is social media is bad because it's addictive. I. Think. It's pretty clear that social media can be very addictive. So kind of don't want to discuss whether or not it's addictive. Let's assume that it is addictive. Why is it so addictive part of the reason why social media so addictive is because there's so much uncertainty about what content we're going to be seeing as soon as we log in and that's something that economists and. Psychologists and neuroscientists have known for a long time that part of what makes anything addictive is the maybe factor that maybe when we go on, we're GonNa see something cute or funny or something that is irritating or frustrating or we're going to see are crazy uncles political post that's GonNa make us really upset and it's the same reason why people become addicted to the slot machines in Las Vegas because maybe when they pull the lever of that slot machine, there's GonNa be a big payoff but maybe there isn't and it is that uncertainty that curiosity that keeps people going back more and more it's the reason. Why people addicted to slot machines but not vending machines in both cases you're putting money in, but it's the one where there's certainty of reward. You know that you're going to get that bag of potato chips at the vending machine but you don't know if you're going to get a reward at the slot machine and it's the same underlying mechanism that keeps us going back more and more to instagram or facebook or snapchat because every time you log on, you don't know what you're gonna see even if we know intellectually it's a waste of time that curiosity and the uncertainty keeps us going back more and more. A lot of social media platforms refer to your followers as friends. We have so many friends on facebook for. Is having a lot of friends or followers on social media is the same as having that many friends in real life it's not really the same thing because for a lot of people, they'll tell you that they don't even know all the people that they haven't even met in person all the people who are following them or who they are quote friends with on these platforms. We do know that from a psychological perspective arguably, the single strongest predictor of our happiness has to do with the quality friendships and relationships that we have with other people, but we're talking about. The three dimensional people you spend time with and who you develop an authentic relationship with and on social media very often those relationships are very superficial and they don't get much beyond a like or a comment or share or re tweet or something, and that's not really the basis of a long lasting relationship with someone who will be there for you. If you're going through a rough time and you need a shoulder to lean on if you're having a really good day and. You need someone to sort of help you extend the positivity and share that happiness with very often those followers and quote relationships on social media are just too superficial and it's much more worthwhile to develop and invest your time and effort in those relationships that are with the people who you're interacting with more meaningfully on a day-to-day basis.
Moving from Amazon to Shopify
"Michael, how are you man? I'm well, thank you. Yes sipping hovel of. Lemon and honey and ginger tea. But I pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. Keeping his bank. Very. Well, very. Good. Well, let's jump in today. We've got a hot topic, I think, and that's the topic of. Moving from Amazon to shop affi-. Or from really you know Amazon to any other sales channel but we're GONNA sort out how shop by dozen doesn't help. ECOMMERCE sellers the pros and cons some of the detail. So you ready to jump into this absolutely hot topic definitely. All right let's do well. So I guess the first question that comes to my mind is you know you work with a lot of mazing Amazon sellers in your skincare collective and programs work there in London. What have you heard from them in terms of their fears frustrations concerns by way of migrating or adding you know a different channel away from The stations can sense I mean he took into Amazon Selah. How long have you got about I mean but Most of them concern Amazon rather than. The fear of moving across course. It's. have. So much fair as a resistance on because I was just so much for you and when we bitching Amazon I, guess he's good to remember that the of qualified traffic with buying intense. Of people who have their credit card on file is amazing and the conversion rates she got on Amazon I mean I was looking at somebody the day in the United Nine Percent Convention right and I'm like, wow, that's great. We could be a fifteen, twenty, twenty, five percent. That's kind of eighty I in the context anywhere else on online, right? For. Those understandable reasons in people on in a hurry to get and they like to bitch about it and I guess every. So often the FE Simone Amazon and that's when they consider maybe making the move uninformed to be fair to the tank Muslims have very active people who do a hell of a lot of stuff and a lot of them have got their own websites. Some of them look beautiful designs when the functions he's pretty good. But does only a couple of people I think actually have any serious percentage of their sales going through their own I'm known Amazon sites. So. I guess that tells you a story. Nor. Does what do you think the The kind of the. Underlying real issue is there is there time? Is it there education about the other side's is at their capacity of their team? Our finances? I mean well, what do you think is that actual barrier to success? Is just good question I I organization of the of the work or it could be this very good question not something. I should probably ask people. It sounds like I'm about to pitch them into a shop if I but I. It is probably an important discussion points allies because I do think. On. The one hand, there is a growing awareness and interest amongst more more members of the Maas bonds. In being able to grow you an audience and specifically contacts, you are not as it tends to be sort of add ons. There's not so much the sales channel thing as a traffic strategy things so that or even being able to control things like reviews are a lot of people building a facebook chats audience in order to then get more reviews on Amazon but the sales China's by much. and. It's not so much a traffic channel as sort of a channel of contacts as the traffic for shopping is still very much about Amazon. Channel Four getting reviews. Is. Stuff like e mail I'm likely chapel design make some kind of say assured like the direct to consumer communication stuff they want to be in touch with them personally for email marketing, those kinds of interactions. Sure. Exactly. But on what the resistance is I guess the here's the thing that the growth sucks cash and also as a capital intensive growth model, a business model and I'm great at selling lots of stuff, which means that people constant need to apply that capital two thoughts channel neff while having a capsule spa and especially to drive traffic, which is my perception of the problem with your in websites Isn't that, and then of course, if you're looking in the short-term medium-term cashflow than if you put money into Amazon odds, I'm not tends to convert better than your own site would it's kind of becomes very hard to justify taking the money away from something that is going to produce an immediate cash flow to something as in. This is my conjecture. Sure. It's true or not but I something already she got an Oscar combined with because it's an excellent question. Okay. Yeah. No I mean that's very interesting. What one just response to what you just mentioned on the ads side of course, the mental shift there is. On Amazon if you're doing ams work, you're really spending money to make sales. On CHIAPPA FI. If you do it right I mean through other advertising platforms he really spending money to acquire a customer.
Keep Track of Movies with Alexa Lists
"Six and you can win prizes now. Collectible cards by going to the voice dot com now. Today I want to give you a little tip that I found has been very useful. When people tell me you know, here's a movie, you should watch it. Here's a book you should read, or here's a here's a series on Netflix that I'm watching and I'm sure you've had similar circumstances. That seems to be a hot topic when you're together with friends or family and like Oh. What are you watching these days? Or what are you listening to so? What I found was at somebody recommended a movie to me and I'm typically horrible when it comes to remembering movies when I wanNA watch a movie I can't remember what people told me to watch. So I don't know why earlier but I took out my phone and I the Lexi APP, and then I just said. LEXI. Add this movie to my movie list and I did not have a movie. The so Alexi prompted me okay. You don't have a movie this. Would you like me to create one? I said yes, and the next thing I knew it
The Heavy Weight of Resentments.
"Happy Almost July fourth everyone I'm a little eight on the uptake this week and Kind of recording my podcast day or so late so I am ramping up to July fourth. It is finally sunny here in Georgia, most of our days in the last week or so have been thunderstorms. And overcast. I have scheduled myself a chair by the pool which this super white skin doesn't get to see a lot of typically, but I have down in the summer of two thousand twenty to. Throw caution to the wind and I'M GONNA. Get a Suntan. Yeah, go figure! ooh! That's huge news in the context of the world right now. I totally get it all ready to that end. I have a hot topic for you today, but it's GonNa be short and concise, and give you some doable things to work on in regards to them most fun thing about our internal life, and that is our resentments, so let's start with a good old fashioned, revisiting of what the heck resentments are in how they are formed in case, y'all. Don't remember this or haven't heard it before Are, really closely related to anger, and they are based in negative feelings that ill-will toward someone or something that emanates from the past resentments are about the past and revisiting a lot of past injustices, and they're based in our perception of injustices again in the past were reliving them and revisiting them some people. May Have Been One of these people. hold onto resentment for years almost refusing to let go of them because for me, I didn't know what they were doing to my psyche, and my relationships over time I, could no longer wear those. Rosey colored eyeglasses and ignore that resentments were at the heart of many of the behaviors that I wanted to get rid of oh the irony right of trying to get rid of all these past behaviors that were in some way A. A little resentful toward ourselves about when we talk about resentments, it's really hard not to acknowledge a couple of really great sayings that have come into the psychology world, and of course the recovery world in that is if you resent somebody, you become his or her slave now please bear with me as I use that word in the context of the true meaning of it because I know that there's a lot going on obviously in. Looking at our history in the United States with slavery, but for the context of talking about resentment it does ring true that the more you allow this person to live in your head or this institution to live in your head, and therefore control many of your thoughts in resentment toward them. You are enslaved to them. The other one that I, actually prefer is resentments are like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die. In my practice with my clients, I have come up with this sort of a diagram that helps people understand what resentments are how they start, and how they roll through our minds by how we think about things. And the way I break it down for clients. Is that all resentment? Begin first with an unmet need. and. That unmet need largely goes on verbalised to other people. We think we're telling. Folks what we need, but most often we want them to in tune it to read our minds, which we know is a form of cognitive distortion. So after we have this need that, we probably don't even know enough to label to identify. That is going largely unmet and largely unexpressed. That's when we form expectations around that need. They should know that I. don't like the dishwasher loaded like that. They should know that I need to be hugged or then I prefer to hold hands. They should know that that. That irritates me. That is expectation and when we have expectations again that mostly go on verbalised, they become rumination. We cannot stop thinking about
Former Player and Agent Donald Dell
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated? Tennis podcast is also the first week of Wimbledon. He says wistfully our guest this week. Is Donald Dell? Donald is a former player a promoter broadcaster at agent. He's worn many hats, not unlike Bartholomew Cubans. He is also worn many at once. Donald is still force in tennis. He wrote an op Ed recently in the Washington Post, about the prospect of combining the men's and women's tours, so we talk about that. We talked about where tennis is right now, and as a bonus, Donald signed Michael Jordan out of North Carolina and especially after last dance. We talk about Michael Jordan so some non tennis bonus coverage on Michael Jordan and a lot of good tennis. Talk here's Donald Dell. Appreciate you doing. How are you doing? I'm doing fine We've been lucky I've been home since about March fifteenth, but my two daughters, their husbands, and our two grandchildren, five and seven are about thirty yards from where we are, and it's like one hundred twenty day thanksgiving. It doesn't sound bad. Yeah, let's I I. Don't know but I got a couple of things to bring up. I. Did want to talk about the the op-ed you wrote. Wrote thought you'd be a good person to talk about with the the tour merger, which has been eclipsed lately by a Co bit in the US Open, but this was sort of a hot topic, and everyone says the same thing which is great idea. The devils in the details, so let's let's advance that. How do we exercise those those devils details? How do we push through? So this becomes more than. In abstract idea that we need to negotiate what what are we doing to make this happen? Well I I think I think more than that. The Devil Devil's in the the leadership in other words I think it's GonNa take strong leaders it both part, both groups to get done, and I think Steve. Simon, and Mickey Lawler. Are Really, veterans, and and well respected, and well like Gatanzi the new chairman of the ATP I'm told his very smart very capable. And I. Think if the if they wanted to really do it, they get together. And then it takes a lot of support. You Know Billie, Jean and Roger, and some of the leaders in the game. All got behind it, then you. It's sort of like all the protests out there today you gotTa. You gotta move the ships and it's a big alphabet soup that everybody sort of fights for their turf. The ATP tour. Has Really established itself, but it's not part of the grand. Slams not far the idea. And not that that they want to be I don't Miss Other Sami, but I just think. Recently in the last six or eight years, the ATP tour has not worked very effectively in some senses because they've been voting in blocks the three tournament directors vote together. The three player reps vote together, and then the chairman's left. There was hanging vote and literally one vote because he always makes one side unhappy in the last two chairman. If you review John have been fired. Because one group didn't like how voted, and they need a super majority of forty two to extend. His contract so his contract ran out. In the last two cases now I'm told by people that very close to respect the Gal Gal Danzi is quite a different. Person needs a very strong leader, very smart and media and he really gets it. I just think for the sport It would be really helpful to have the two groups. Merged on a on a simple basis, and the when you talk about the details, you're right but I think the simplicity is what matters keep it simple stupid when you want to merge the to start with you don't have to have exactly the same boards, the same voting members, but come in and merge it, and have you know five or six basic principles and truthfully. We, found out in Washington with the city open that Iran for fifty years literally for the WTI ESPN Tennis Foundation. That We. We had a men's only event for forty two years, and then city came along our title sponsor, and rightfully said look fifty one percent of our clients. Bankers are women, so we're not gonNA. Unless you'll bring a women's tournament into it and we did, but it was a problem because there's a bigger women's event at Sanford for seven hundred thousand, we were only allowed by the rules for two fifty, but guess what. The ATP the minority of the ATP ten percent fought it tooth and nail. They didn't want it integrated tournament. And I to go before the board three different times, and swear up and down that we give him favorability on the scheduling of the Center Court. Scheduling, transportation scheduling practice courts. And it just didn't. It's working okay. And the women, the best women like to play Washington but now under the new WTA rules. We can only sign one of the top twenty in the world in order to protect the other event. That's raising more prize money by seven hundred or more, so those kind of problems out to be worked out and the ATP tour really needs to get a stronger with this membership the the the vocal minority, which is really only about ten or twelve percent, and it's always the complainers on the tour. The to aboard knows who they are, and they're always ranked between one hundred, fifty and three hundred,
Controversial statues toppled in cities around the world
"Since the death of George Floyd Confederate monuments are coming down in states across America some are removed quietly in the dead of night others are ripped from their pedestals in broad daylight and it's not just here in the US either protesters overseas are toppling monuments to slavers and colonizers as the protests over police racism and brutality rumbled across European cities some activists targeted that own country's colonial history in Belgium demonstrates a spray painted a statue of king Leopold the second Wallenstein U. K. statue of seventeenth century slave trader Edward Colston was toppled and thrown into a rhythm can the push for justice move forward without first looking back maybe the best way to reckon with our racist history is to dump it in the river we're going across America and abroad today as part of our one A. across America project it's a partnership with six public radio stations in various parts of the country we're joined now by someone who once said a great nation does not hide its history it faces its flaws and it corrects them which Landrieu is the former mayor of New Orleans and author of the book in the shadow of statues a white southerner confronts history welcome back to the show image thank you so much exactly also joining us is only a haci nada she's a writer and organizer of black lives matter U. K. black lives matter U. K. has compiled a list of sixty statues that it wants removed because they celebrate slavery Ali I joins us from London welcome hi Larry thanks for having me Mitch you brought down a number of Confederate monuments while your mail it may or you did that legally I wonder what do you make of protests in various cities that are taking down statues and monuments illegally well it again do it up myself and I wasn't the first one to talk about it it's been a long history of people who were leaders in New Orleans who tried to take those monuments down they all legal processes for doing it and there are the process used to do on it a peaceful protest you know the important thing is is that people now are beginning to understand how insidious those monuments are the ones that was specifically put up to celebrate those individuals who've spent their lives protecting slavery and so that's what the Confederate monuments are in the United States of America I can't speak to the ones because I don't know enough about them in other parts of the in the south in the United States of America there are three thousand monuments that will place up with the state and direct purpose of revering and honoring individuals who fought to split the United States and have all the calls of preserving slavery and that's just on the civil war or the confederacy was on the wrong side of that war they were on the wrong side of history and the last thing that we should be doing is honoring what's called a lost cause which is meant that somehow of the confederacy was a noble cause when in fact it was not in these monuments will put in places of public places yeah man on on public on public land and with and will put up with the specific purpose of Riviera the person I general Robert E. Lee Jefferson Davis PGT Beauregard and their whole host of others whose mission it was was to preserve slavery yeah and I felt very strongly being the mayor of a multi cultural city that is historically always prided itself on its diversity as an essential part of who we are as people to have those monuments in public places that was sending messages to people of color that they still want welcome here after all those years and so I couldn't be more thrilled that they're coming down you know we can get we can get kind of caught up in how they coming down and whether we should have long conversations a short conversations but essentially we're all finished with us if you just take the monument down and you don't get to the root of why they were put up in the first place or the ideas that they were trying to perpetuate that manifest themselves in institutions Holly and police and etcetera etcetera then we would have made some progress but not nearly as much progress as we should have this is clearly a hot topic of date debate in the US Stephen wrote on Facebook this is needed and long overdue Tommy wrote on Facebook I assume sarcastically by all means a race history get rid of it that will fix everything and then sailed sailor apes tweeted I say pull them down melt them and resign them to the garbage bin where the losers of history tip Oakley wind up yeah what do you make of this issue of whether a statue comes down legally or illegally doesn't matter in the end to a to a movement I think in my personal opinion whether it comes down legally or illegally is not the conversation we should be hopping Bob why is it being taken down and debated in the first place I think if we get into the legality and illegality over we then can get into a very polarizing conversation of good and bad it wouldn't really that's not what any of this is trying to do is really trying to have a conversation around what to be glorified in these countries and what do we put public money towards glorifying because these statues these plaques all of these things that glorify the slave owners these colonizers all paid for out of the tax pay is pocket and given that we've had two years of austerity I think there are a couple other ways that we might be able to spend this money instead of glorifying
COVID-19 and Immune Symptoms in Kids
"So why don't you start by telling us a little bit about yourself? How did you get to be what you are? What do you do? Yeah, so I got interested in pediatric infectious disease, probably when I was a medical student, but Never really knew path. I was going to go down as I went through residency. I found all the cool cases happen to be kids that had infections at least to me, so I had two mentors in residency, and then decided to pursue a fellowship in infectious disease. I went to Vanderbilt University in had. Really good experience. There was some great mentors and just got really interested in both clinical aspects of it as well as the research. Aspects of infectious disease so when you talk about the research aspects. What specifically are you interested in? Yeah, so My interest is in kids that have invasive bacterial infections. That's kind of fancy words for kids that come in with bad kind of common infections of their bones and joints, pneumonia things like that caused by bacteria that often are treated. As. Outpatients in clinics, but sometimes get bad enough where they have to come into the hospital in us. Can you give us a little more information about that? Can you talk about like when you talk about research in that area? What specifically do you want to study that others have not before? Yeah, so things that I'm interested in our standing. Why certain kids get really severe disease, and why other kids don't get much of a have a pretty mild course of disease, and so one of the things that's really interesting to me is is figuring out. kind of markers and kind of clinical signs of which kids are at risk for really bad disease, and then using those markers and signs as doctors and clinicians to help target therapies and improve. Improve the way that kids are treated so one of the reasons we wanted to talk to you. Today was because everyone in the world is focused on the current pandemic and with a Vid, and although this doesn't seem to be affecting kids as much it's still is affecting kids, but before even get into that. Let's just start with in your experience. has this been a disease that seems to be infecting kids? Kids because you turn on the news and some people are panicked. Some people are not what's really going on. I think that you're right the level of panic in the level of kind of anxiety around this is super high and I think what we're seeing is that in general kids from the infection of covid in corona virus are really mildly affected in general, there most kids don't seem to be. Be Getting it in big numbers, and if they do most of them, handle it pretty well. Either have no symptoms at all. Our mild infection that said we have seen you know a handful of kids that have come into the hospital in Ben. Pretty Sick and certainly we've. We've had to take care of those kids as well, but overall kind of big picture. Kids seem to be less affected than adults do. So when they come in they, they seem to be very sick. What are they meeting with Cova? They're they're needing. Respiratory support so that they're needing oxygen. They're needing help breathing. The majority of kids are coming in just having a lot of issues with with respiratory things, especially chest pain in trouble breathing. Are these otherwise healthy kids are the kids who seem to have other come. kind of seeing a little bit of both for the most part. They're healthy kids. The ones that we've seen in particular are pretty healthy teenagers. In general, a Kinda you know anywhere from ten to a eighteen nineteen years of age but really we kind of a mixed bag of kids are pretty healthy, otherwise as well as some that have a little bit more health issues. Do you have any sense of whether? It's that kids are not being infected as much as adults are. Is it just that they're most of them? Don't even notice or just her handling. It well yeah. I. Think that that is a really good question in a bit of a hot topic right now. I think that we don't really know exactly. Why some kids are getting? Getting severe not an end, and why kids as opposed to adult I mean certainly when we know what other respiratory infections young young kids, a kind of the extremes of ages usually are most affected. That doesn't seem to be the case with this. It seems like in general. Kids don't tend to build quite as much of this big inflammatory response that we're seeing an adults. So I think that's interesting. I'm not sure and correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure that everybody understands that it's not just getting the virus that is dangerous. It's in many ways. The body's response can sometimes be so severe and trying to combat the virus that the immune response can actually become dangerous. Yeah, that's definitely true, and that's something not necessarily. NECESSARILY UNIQUE TO CORONA VIRUS although We're really seeing quite a bit in this. where the actual infection itself can be, it can be severe, but more than anything. oftentimes, it's that it's that revved up immune system and inflammation that the body makes that really affects the rest of the body in a particular with this disease. It seems to really affect the lungs in. People that are severely affected.
Keeping Healthcare Simple for People
"Welcome back to the podcast today. Have the privilege of. Even these Andino, she is an Afro Latino Health Equity innovator born and raised in the Bronx and the founder and CEO of radical health at least enjoyed a fledgling career in health tech pioneering, some of its first digital health solutions, including bringing the first mobile APP prescribing platform to the market and working with global clients, such as the N., H. S. in London and Kaiser Permanente while she routinely trained oncologist on new drugs. She found herself unprepared when her mother was diagnosed with cancer this I heard directly and intimately confront the systemic healthcare despair she knew existed in founding radical health. The first Latina owned and operated benefit Corp in New York City. She has sought to combine her expertise in healthcare and her passion as a community organizer, coming from an historically marginalized community herself. It was important for valise to initially build radical health by bringing together her neighbors around her kitchen table and hearing firsthand from voices, including undocumented women of color, elderly young people and the Lgbtq community who are. Figuratively, and literally never given a seat at the table to have a say in their own healthcare destiny through radical help you've is committed to the task of transforming healthcare by facilitating health literacy and self advocacy as well as or Djing a relationship between meaningful to face conversations with cutting edge technology, so you know the teams of access and making health care equality. Equality is something that continues to come up. We touch on topics like social determinants of health and I think we're GONNA be at a cross section of a lot of these hot topics today with the release, and so with that I want to give her a warm welcome, so glad you're here. Thank you so much for having me it really the pleasure so. What did I leave out of your intro that you wanNA share with the listeners I think the important pieces that we could add to. That is that I'm. reported circle train so I use indigenous practice to convene and hold workshops and sessions, but really go back into practices that have been used over and over again, and we get to incorporate that into our work and I recently in two thousand eighteen with nominated as a roddenberry fellow for the work that we're doing with radical health. Congratulations on that that's pretty pretty impressive. And you know you gotta do things differently to get results, and so you know your story obviously highlights why you're so passionate about what you do, but what is it that got you into healthcare to begin with? The story is anyone ever grown up with very little. The number one objective and for me was I wanted to get out of the hood I wanted to make a lot of money I wanted a fancy apartment. All the things that we see on television and that was that was my number one goal and the way to do that. was I was GonNa Dancer, and so I'm going to help people but I also make sure that I had some. Truth behind that was that didn't really really work out for me, and that wasn't really the path that I was going to go on, but I still ended up in healthcare and ended up looking at help from different perspectives and getting to do that getting kind of the inner belly of the beast in my work with Pharma through my work in health, tack and so I. Guess I guess ultimately trying to what led me here today. That's awesome. You know what that grit that very strong desire to get out of the hood and just get a better life I mean. Hey, I grew up with not much either elise. Definitely been a motivating force in my life and everything that I do so I totally appreciate that. So now that you've been the business for quite some time, and and doing your own thing now. What's that hot topic that you want us to focus on today for leaders listening? The important thing and I I am shouting from the rooftops at every opportunity. That I get. We talk a lot about innovation. We're talking a lot about transforming how using all the new things but what we're really missing is like equity and equity in help and to day and America folks that are the most disproportionately affected are black and Brown people. People with disabilities are better in and. Help like right. Yeah! Health, as as we know, it is not equal, and we have people who are dying disproportionate rate where I live in the South Bronx our community number. I'm average. Five years sooner than our neighbors were less than a mile away on the upper east side, and this is happening across the country. Where are the code and the structures where we live are really impacting our ability, our our life, and how we live and I think that really needs to be at the top of all of these conversations in top of health. It's not enough. Enough to provide you know quality care or provide an invasion be talking about who is not being acknowledging who are the most impacted by what we're doing our work and what we're creating

Advancing intelligent automation: Interview with Chris
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Malk. I'm your host Ronald smells or our guest. Today is Chris Townsend. Who's the area vice president of federal at Uri Path? Hello Chris Thank you so much for joining us on today. Good Morning. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah Welcome Chris. And thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at you. I pass hurt. Thank you I've been back for about eight months now. Joined in September of last year point prior to that I was at semantic where I loved their federal business for about four years on the cybersecurity side of things and prior to that I was at Cisco for about ten years and led their federal healthcare protocol. I'll tell you it's so refreshing. Cybersecurity is section important segment of our business. And what we do with our security you were always talking about. Haywood the bad things that could potentially happen to us in the technology we need to protect ourselves and now joining you I pass. And talking about our and the efficiencies we can gain and how we could make people's lives better by improving their day to day jobs and taking a lot of those mundane work off. Their plate has been really rewarding and very excited to be here great. We'll definitely you know it's kind of interesting. We obviously here today. We we talk a lot about television systems in a and machine learning and of course the role that automation has to play as part of that whole thing as well and it's interesting because we talk. I'll let you mentioned a little bit about cybersecurity. And that's been a hot topic for well over a decade DECA two decades of course but people didn't realize they go out cybersecurity prior to say the beginning of the two thousands. Because we didn't know didn't realize we had all these vulnerabilities in these systems. And now I think people are sort of making the same realization with intelligent systems. Like we have all these processes but like. Oh wait we can make the more intelligent. And this idea of hyper. Automation has gained popularity in recent years. And it's the the idea of combining a bunch of things together because not just about automations. Obviously more but the word hyper is all about so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with the term hyper automation? Can you explain a little bit about what it is? And what role does robotic process automation and other forms of automation. Artificial intelligence have to do with hyper automation. And of course the relationship to kind of what you're seeing and your customers absolutely and I love the parallel use the evolution of cybersecurity. Nearly two thousand. GonNa everyone was I connected to the Internet needed to protect their systems. And how that evolved to what is today and and the importance of it. I think we're really on the cusp of that right now. With artificial intelligence in our PA the evolution of how to use technology and apply if you look at the productivity of worker you know back to the industrial revolution over the last one hundred twenty years productivity is consistently increase over that time. And you know it was pretty dramatic in the beginning of the nineteen hundreds when we had assembly lines and more mechanization and an industry that really propelled that productivity when we moved into the I T H and of course introduction ubiquity ubiquity of it really accelerated the productivity of workers as. Well now we're seeing is. Productivity is increasing at a decreasing rate. That's flattening out. And the reason for that is we have all this great technology just providing a tremendous information and we're leaving it to employees now to sort through all that information aggregate collect analyze and it's really impacting our ability to be productive so the value of our PA and AI is to outsource that work were to shift that work of collecting aggregating and analyzing that data to robots to automation into A. So we're also seeing which is driving the shift to hyper automation. And the move to hyper. Automation is really putting. Rpa as the core of this evolution. And how we'RE APPROACHING AUTOMATION IN THE APPLICATION OF AI to improve productivity to offload this low value work so hyper automation in a nutshell aggravates. A lot of these technology capabilities across whether it's cloud. Hey I or PA other tools and systems to really accelerate productivity and accelerate the use of our PA. And if you look at the Gardner Studies Garces the top ten technology trends in twenty twenty. Move to hyper automation. And we're GONNA see a thirty percent. Operational cost reduction and the next two to five years as a result in sight broader mason.
The rise of Wikipedia as a source of medical information
"Any number of US wikipedia is the go to website for the latest on covert nineteen so how's it measuring up wired magazine editor in chief Nicholas Thompson went searching for answers one of the strangest things about the modern internet has been the rise of wikipedia it's just a decade ago when we talked about the site as let's be blunt please for lies and nonsense wikipedia is the best thing ever anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject so you know you are getting the best possible information but since then the site is transformed today we keep pedia is regularly the first place many of us check for information about everything in fact we could PDS pages of Corbett nineteen in the pandemic are viewed more than a million times a day an edited almost every hour of the day chances are good that when you visit the page thank you James Heilman may have just finished editing we don't have a vaccine but we do know that this disease can be stocks James Heilman or doctor James as he is known is one of the hundred editors are so with wiki project medicine which edits and reviews all the medical content on wikipedia his view the only proven way to stop coping nineteen is through social distancing do you think that social distancing is working yes definitely we have a good understanding of the transmission of disease you know if everybody was too old and currently still for four weeks this disease would be eradicated in his other life Heilman is an ER doctor at a small hospital in Canada I do not recommend people trust wikipedia blindly you know I think doing so would be silly yeah you know people shouldn't trust other sources of information blindly either wikipedia runs solely on the good will of volunteers like Dr Hileman some of your typical denizens of the internet others are academics and retirees like Rosie goodnight Stevenson we are diverse of wikipedia are really like a learning machine we collaborate we have networks of people who work in various areas she wrote English wikipedia six million article last year we've learned that what we did initially which were write articles that maybe didn't have a reference or enough references that that wasn't the best choice for encyclopedia article she says references and transparency are critical to wikipedia's success you can check every added if something is wrong you can go ahead and fix it it relies on reliable sources Catherine Morris the CEO of the wikimedia foundation the nonprofit that runs wikipedia she says that in comparison to the news we get off social media wikipedia almost always wins it turns out there's a lot of challenges with social networks when it comes to information distribution a lot of questions about whether they can be trusted with monitoring for that Moore says having your own private newsfeed can actually divide us what's the problem that we keep pedia doesn't have there's just one front page wikipedia doesn't matter if you are in Iran or in Italy or in Japan or sitting here in New York City you're all looking at the same information still even though medical pages are strictly monitored by the wiki med project and hot topics to get a lot of page views are carefully edited inaccurate information persists on some of wikipedia's less red pages when I started working on the story I looked myself up on wikipedia and someone had edited my entry to describe me as a Martian who is Nicholas Thompson according to wikipedia Nicholas Thompson is a Martian technology journalist so how do you keep information accurate and wikipedia wikipedia feels the answers to recruit more and more diverse editors one way in fact wikipedia has tried to expand its pool of editors is to edit a thoughts like this one held in Hong Kong in March with the PD becomes more important because of people using it in a more and more widely difference organization with their own political aims and goals what try influencing wikipedia companies governments and politicians try to edit wikipedia entries for their own benefit but we keep pedia editors are using computer programming to fight back now every time someone makes an edit from the White House the computer algorithm notes the edits and sends out a tweet about it but it's no secret why someone would want to influence wikipedia knowledge is power and that means that it is fundamentally disruptive often to those in power if you think about the history of what wikipedia is it's actually pretty radical and I don't mean that in like a political sort of left right away I mean that it is an inversion of power structures this idea the information can and should be available to all but it's no secret why someone would want to influence wikipedia which explains why lowly wikipedia which was founded in two thousand one by Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales almost as a kind of experiment has grown to be one of the most visited websites on the planet it also explains why it's banned in China in fact one in three Americans now gets their medical information from the web which is fine with doctor how I don't mind having an educated patient and you think that having accurate information about Kobe nineteen on wikipedia can save lives you know right now the only tools we have at our disposal to combat this virus is education around how it spreads you know what this disease can be stopped by knowledge I genuinely think that Peter runs on generosity and care somehow this encyclopedia on the internet has given an outlet to millions of people to show that good in case you were wondering on March thirtieth an anonymous internet user base in Hillsboro Oregon using a cellphone decided to make two changes to wikipedia one was a detail about baseball's opening day and the other was about me I'm no longer a Martian technology journalist I am an American technology journalist so thank you anonymous internet user
Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the meat industry
"Meatpacking plants serve one role to turn a steady stream of cattle hogs and chickens into the cuts of meat that consumers want wielding knives and bone size workers line fast moving conveyor belts that winds through these plants in some poultry facilities workers are expected to process up to a hundred and seventy five chickens every minute long before trump world there are these plants were built twenty thirty even fifty years ago the characteristics of the work spaces were not designed having in mind an emergency like the one we're living in now that's a forty five year old worker at the beef plant in Grand Island Nebraska where withholding his name because he fears losing his job in late April several people who worked near him tested positive for covert nineteen one died and he was instructed to quarantine at home the plant's owners JBS USA refused to shut it down are you morally very first they only care about housing and money they don't care about the workers don't care about the health of the workers in written statements GBS officials denied that characterization stressing that the company is committed to worker safety but many meat workers say it's nearly impossible to socially distance in a meat packing plant thousands of people are in the building at one time and workers say hand sanitizer and soap dispensers are often empty even before the pandemic the Nebraska worker worried about accidentally cutting the person next to him goal at least six people working in that area they should eliminate three for now white if you eliminate the person next to me you make more space I think that the job itself is already stressful and backbreaking gruesome and this just added a whole lot more pressure to say Castaneda's father works ninety miles from Grand Island in the Smithfield pork plant in Crete Nebraska she helped organize rallies outside that plant to pressure the company to change its safety protocols it be difficult and it would require an investment but I think it can be done to protect the workers meatpacking companies say they are investing in new safety measures Jared Gillig is in charge of operations for Cargill's meat plants with your cubicles built under kept your table so we don't have folks you're sitting right next to each other I mean so that obviously is a significant change Gilling says that workers are only part of the puzzle his company also has to consider all the cattle to be slaughtered and butchered lining up outside the plant as we balance that with the help of our team and then obviously the drawn to demand from a customer standpoint it quite frankly it's more of a balance of that Kim Cordova says that balance is off she's a union official with the United food and commercial workers she says companies can't just install hand sanitizer stations in plastic dividers and call it a day they may have to do some reconstruction to wide spread both lines out the easiest way to do that might be to slow the line down but the speed of conveyor lines is a hot topic Cordova says the latest recommendations from the CDC and OSHA don't specify how fast lines should run during the pandemic they have not given clear guidance on how bout those three increase should go and in fact the in the pork industry president trump is deregulated a lot of these agencies and they've also allowed those change to go faster on Friday the USDA announced that fourteen plants in states that shut down in recent weeks are set to resume operations that comes as nearly fifty workers nationwide have died from cove it
Irene Kraegel :: The Mindful Christian
"Our guest today is Irene cradle Irene. Nice to meet you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me. So I've really been looking forward to this conversation since we connected on email and I'm I'm really looking forward to unpacking of this topic with you but let's start by just having you tell us about your background sure. My professional background is as a psychologist so I was trained at the Chicago. School of professional psychology and I work as a clinical psychologist Until about since about two thousand three and I've been in a few different kinds of clinical settings and Most recently have been Calvin University where I work at the Center for Counseling and wellness. Which is the Student Counseling Center There Kelvin. And that work has really been? What's brought me to mindfulness. Which is why I'm here today. but yeah professionally mostly the mental health field And I have also been in the world of Christian faith my whole life as well and again. That's been my more. Recent professional interest is now being a psychology and mindfulness in with Christian worldview. I'm so I'm sure I could say much more about myself by a leave it at that. It's conversation Anna. I want to go into a little bit of that and how you got interested in mind from us you mentioned that was a little bit Part of what? You've been doing the past several years one hundred that I come about of the show up if I came up because I was hearing about everywhere so in the field of mental health. It was a hot topic But it was the hot topic that didn't seem to be going away just kept popping up and As I heard about it it was starting to sound like an approach to mental wellbeing mental health. That had some depth to it and I liked that There's a lot of mental health. That's that's very effective but his focus. John Maybe efficiency and Tips about managing different different challenges. And things that can be very helpful but as I applied those in my own life. I didn't feel like they had the kind of lasting impact that I wanted to personally and I didn't always feel comfortable recommending those as the only thing for my clients as well so when I heard about mindfulness It sounded like something that could really have a lot to offer for my clients who are struggling with anxiety. Depression all kinds of emotional suffering and it was also a point in my own life where I was experiencing some emotional suffering myself Coming to grips with some depression. That had really been there. My whole life but That wasn't really Resolving her healing in the way I would like it to despite a lot of other very positive coping skills I was using an different approaches I had taken felt like I was really longing for something deeper. Soza professional interest. It was a personal interest And having gone to a few trainings that were really connected to the world of mental health. I decided I wanted to go through the mindfulness based stress reduction training not as a teacher as a student And the classroom. I WanNa be a teacher like Eddie. Taken the classic. No how do you know you wanNA teach so thank you for taking it you yes. It's phenomenal. It's such a great class And I've found that within really the first one to two sessions of 'em bs are I was personally experiencing some really deep transformation So I I you know people in the world of science talk about these brain shifts and physical changes. That happen when we experienced mindfulness meditation. I've felt that in my brain within the first couple of weeks that I was thinking differently I was feeling differently And it was giving me a whole new set of tools to manage emotional difficulty so I very quickly became a believer And from that point on I got pretty excited about bringing it to students. I was working with at Calvin University And in that context Making sure that I was blending had with The the Christian faith that's important to the university as well so that was kind of what initially drew me to it and that was about Seven years ago or so. It's interesting as you were mentioning having some hesitancy around some of the techniques and tips and tricks for patients who are suffering. The image came to mind of of bailing out a boat. And they're just constantly springing these leaks and wouldn't it be great if there is a way that you could maybe build a boat that wasn't gonNA spring leaks or maybe not quite as many and this to me is one of the values of practices like mindfulness. And not the only one you know there are others as well. The ways in which we can build up our resiliency our ability to work with challenging circumstances to really a soak in the positive times as well not just about The negative ones. And how do we deal with that also? Really be present for the joys of life as well so thinking and one of the phrases I find myself using is that mindfulness was a gift that helped me unlocked the other gifts so it wasn't that those other things weren't also useful. I find myself drawing heavily on cognitive behavioral therapy for example for myself and others Noticing how thought patterns can be distorted noticing alternative thoughts that I might engage with. There's a lot of really good concrete. Cpt out there and other similar approaches And we have things like exercise that we know are really good for a mental health and social connection. Good eating habits. I mean the list goes on and on the things that are good for us But somehow it was mindfulness. It allowed me to access the benefits of those so Sunday like cpt. In the past. I might have engaged with those exercises in some of that work can just found that he had locked into a power struggle in my head. So I might work at identifying a maladaptive thought pattern But before I knew it I was just in this argument with myself about whether that was really maladaptive or not. So mindfulness has has given me a new tool to step out of that power struggle at my head and receive all those other benefits as well now can notice those thoughts but without so much gripping onto mammoth struggling with them Same for exercise him for relationships. You know I can be. I can enjoy social interaction much more now that I have that tool of mindfulness That allows me to kind of watch. My thoughts watch my feelings. Go by So I continue to to practice and preach all of the mental health tools out there and I find for me. I needed mindfulness to really be able to benefit from them. You know it's fascinating that you bring up cvt and getting caught in one's own thoughts. We were just in our in person. Mindfulness Group on Monday nights going through the cognitive distortions and that this is a group in working for several years in twenty thirty some people and they're grounded mindfulness and how their their approach to this. Their observations of these distortions as they show up was really interesting and maybe a little bit different than others. Who might not have that That firm foundation of mindfulness tour on and some kind of curious in your own practice. If you've run into working with students patients or even others just in your daily life on things like cognitive distortions and just her ability to notice them of that's been supported by mindfulness absolutely it. It seems to me that you can't work on it or modify it. If you don't know it's fair I mean to state the obvious so I. I know for myself when I first started practicing. It was rather surprising and shocking to me. How many judgmental thoughts are streaming through my mind? At every moment. I had no idea that was going on I knew I was maybe a bit cynical negative but I didn't realize the extent to which there is kind of a constant barrage of negatively towards myself super helpful. They're not as good when I noticed that sort of this. Oh that's so interesting like maybe there's another way to relate to myself And that was like I said a really big turning point for transformational and that has to be foundation of good. Cpt or cognitive behavioral work. If we want to modify those patterns we have to know their their
"hot topic" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030
"Hot topic of the week is corona virus something that but two months ago none of us had ever heard of something that right now many of us don't know much about but we've heard the term we know what it is now I would like to talk a little bit and when I say talk a little bit like to hear from you on this are you panicked are you freaked out I see the words pandemic I I look at the numbers I listen to the politicians on both sides and I I need more information what what I don't know let me talk start with what I don't know maybe you can add some things that you'd like to to know what I don't know is how they started is this a new virus which we've never seen before I don't know that I don't know that I'd like to know the extent of it in China I don't trust the Chinese government and you can accuse me of being I necessarily suspicious but I don't trust the Chinese government and whatever they're going to say on this I've heard and you've probably read some of the rumors and speculation as to this started in a I guess was a live food market and something about bad said cats in your read this stuff and you don't really know what we're talking about we do know is that there been a significant number of people who now have been diagnosed with corona virus I think the numbers around eighty thousand maybe more maybe more that upwards of close to three thousand have died and maybe more maybe more those numbers pale in comparison to what the flu does in this country alone every year I was somewhat surprised to find that we've lost to the flu over the last ten years an average of I think you see at the end it's three hundred and sixty thousand people about thirty six forty thousand people a year on average die that actually see figures higher than that obviously there's gonna be some judgments particularly when when older people contract the flu it often turns into pneumonia so what's the cause of death is the cause of death the pneumonia that the flu turned into us the cause of death the float you can go back and forth on that but the fact of the matter is that's why we get flu shots or at least why many of us get flu shots every year now there's a headline that I've seen in the last couple days I'm not only in the globe and probably in the Herald to what I know was in some of the local patch newspapers are clamped down more than two hundred people under coronavirus quarantine in Massachusetts a total of six hundred eight have it under quarantine in Massachusetts welp those figures are actually accurate but they're terribly misleading they're terribly misleading because when you read the story this is more than two hundred people in Massachusetts have recently returned from China that are under quarantine it being monitored for core a crown of virus with health officials saying they're ready to scale up the state's response of necessary a total of six hundred and eight people have been under fourteen day self quarantine in their homes public health commissioner Monica Borrell said on a conference call on Wednesday by the way we did place a call to commissioner Burrell's office today but we did not get a call back we're hoping to have her on the show to give us some of the information on this and what her best information is if you're listening commission Burrell is a lot of of your residents in Massachusetts who would love to hear your point of view in the globe article or the Herald article excuse me she stressed the risk remains low for this highly contagious disease okay so let's think about the numbers all the individuals quarantine three hundred and seventy seven have already completed the monitoring and have been released with no symptoms that's not bad Berle said two hundred thirty one residents remain under self quarantine and as such are being monitored we're preparing for whatever comes our way here in Massachusetts she said people should live their lives normally and go about their normal activities she stressed the overall risk to people in Massachusetts remains low there is no community level spread of coronavirus here she said now today speaking in Washington vice president Mike pence who is billable been put in charge of the government's fight against corona virus we're gonna play catch seventeen rob this is him speaking today in Washington about fifteen confirmed cases in the United States this is not represent or reference those who have quarantine so if you're coming back from China on a plane you bet you're going to be quarantined and many people would prefer to be quarantined in their home saying basically I'll go to my home I won't interact with anyone and and that's self quarantine but in terms of the number of people who are infected I did three hundred and twenty million people those with the vice president to say today as of today we have fifteen cases of corona virus that have been detected in the United States with only one new case detected in the last two weeks there's another forty five cases that have been diagnosed among Americans have been repatriated from China and while one American is hospitalized thankfully all the patients have been treated and are doing well well the risks to the American public remains low as the president said yesterday we're ready we're ready for anything okay so that was Mike pence today in Washington also in Washington Nancy Pelosi the speaker of the house I would say criticized the trump administration now you may think politics is involved in this or maybe you think this is just good medical analysis but whatever you think is what Nancy Pelosi had to say and cut fifteen rob the.

"hot topic" Discussed on Workplace Perspective
"One is another one like ab five that has caused a lot of confusion and a lot of consternation so ab fifty one is a prohibition on mandatory arbitration agreements. So we've talked about arbitration agreements on the show before and if you want to hear more about arbitration agreements events you can check out episodes eleven and twelve on our website a few things about arbitration agreements before we really get into Ab fifty one in an unemployment setting arbitration agreements are a contract between employers and employees where each agrees to waive their constitutional right to a jury trial and instead agreed how their dispute arbitrated in a private setting before a private judge who can be either a retired judge or an attorney attorney arbitration decisions in and of themselves are binding final rulings. That can only be challenged under limited circumstances. So one of the things to really keep in mind is that arbitration agreements do not limit an employee's right to bring claims against an employer for for alleged violations of California Labor Code or the Employment Housing Act. That's really important. They do not limit an employee right to bring a claim arbitration agreements Only limit the forum where the claims will be adjudicated meaning either a private setting in arbitration or a public setting in civil court okay now. AB fifty one prohibits employers who were not subject to the Federal Arbitration Act from requiring applicants or employees to agree As a condition of employment to sign a mandatory arbitration of employment related claims which means that if your employer is not subject to the Federal Arbitration Act Act. They can no longer require you to sign an arbitration agreement as a condition of employment but it doesn't Prohibiting employers from asking an employee to voluntarily Turley signed an arbitration agreement so if the employer is not subject to Federal Arbitration Act. They can't require you to sign the arbitration agreement. But they can't ask you to voluntarily sign it which means you get to choose and in some situations I'm not gonna go one way or the other own arbitration agreements. You can listen to our shows. I think in some circumstances manses. Maybe maybe it's appropriate. It all depends on you and how you feel about it. You just need to understand that as an employee that's a significant right the constitutional constitutional right to a jury trial trial in front of your peers is significant and important and you should be informed And understand and what you're waving when you're asked to waive that right now. What this does not apply to you? So does not apply to post dispute. Settlement agreements is meaning. If you've had a claim against an employer it's been litigated you're selling and you're settling it out. It's not gonNA apply nor is it going to apply to any negotiated severance agreements. So if you get a severance agreement meant that has a arbitration provision in it. That's going to be okay. And as I said it does not apply to employer subject to the Federal Arbitration Act Now because the bill doesn't apply to employer subject to the federal arbitration impacted. The bill is kind of uncertain. There are a lot of prior bills like this that attempted had similar restrictions and arbitration. But they were always vetoed by By Governor Brown based on federal preemption so simply put federal preemption it's illegal doctrine Dan allowing federal law to take precedence over or to displace altogether state law in certain matters of national importance such as interstate commerce. So obviously our new governor. I see things differently and by signing. Ab Fifty one. It's going to likely force the issue to be decided by the courts in the years to come so we are about halfway ourselves. Want to take a quick break right now. So stay with us more on these new laws for twenty twenty when we come back Average time a resume spends on an HR manager's desk is seven seconds and most of them are tossed aside now imagine if one of those resumes belonged to Yasmine who was living in a shelter. Juggling three jobs. I had to be resilient. That's something that you can't teach or if that resume they were from someone who worked twelve hour shifts into recycling company with my dad. WHO's seventy two? That taught me a work ethic that I care with me every day. We rely so much on a resume yet. It could never tell the full story of someone growing up where I did. A lot of things. Could've gotten in the way of my goals but I learned to push through and that's what I bring work every day. So maybe it's time we looked beyond the resume and look to grads of life.

Do not necessarily reflect those of Sapphire legal. Or it's attorneys. Ed should not be considered legal advice. You're listening to workplace perspective and Employment Law podcast presented by Sapphire legal. Welcome back everyone in October of this year. The Governor Governor of our State California signed into law the last of the legislative changes for twenty nineteen. This means starting January first twenty twenty employers and unemployed alike will be subject to a whole host of new laws so for today. Show we're GONNA be talking about a few of the most impactful changes and what to be aware of as we asher in a brand new decade a couple of things though before we start i WanNa make sure he understands. We are talking about new laws coming into effect in January of twenty twenty and I also want to make sure that you understand. That are focused for today is going to be how these new laws are going to impact private as opposed to public employers and employees. So let's start out by taking a look at one of the most controversial New Laws that we have a b five also WANNA say we're not going to go over everything that's come in of course because we don't have time so I've just picked some of the The controversial ones and the ones that I think are very important to be aware of as we come into the new year so the first one as I said let's go through it. A B five worker status employees and independent contractors so one of the first waves of new legislation that was signed by the governor in the past legislative session. Was this bill with a lot of exceptions. It codifies the holding in a controversial case called dynamics the dynamics case as was decided in twenty eighteen and it redefined the test that employers must use to determine whether or not an individual qualifies as an independent Senate contractor or an employee so pre dynamics businesses use what was called a multi factor test. It was known as the Barilla's test and use that to determine whether or not an individual qualified as an independent contractor or as an employee so with the Brillo test an employer could look to eleven eleven barilla's factors chief among those was whether or not the employee had control Or the right to control the worker. Both as to the work that was being performed armed. The manner in the means in which it was performed as well this was also a factor that was singled out by our department of industrial relations as particularly significant which had the effect of making it the single most important factor and one that most employers relied on this idea of control control so dynamics simplified the analysis so it did away with all the eleven factors and paired it just down to three basic questions finding that if an employer can affirmatively establish a the workers free from the control and direction of the employer in connection with the performance of the work under contract and in in fact be the worker performs work that is of course outside the usual course of the hiring entities business and see the worker customarily engages in an independently established trade. And if all that if all that works if all that is true then the worker can be improperly classified as independent contractor now eighty five was enacted to quote codify the decision and the dynamics case and clarify its application unquote. However in my opinion it really does nothing more than muddy the waters and once again adds confusion to what was for the better part of a year a pretty straightforward analysis in any case? This bill provides that the ABC test will remain in effect but that if a court rules that the three part task cannot be applied then the issue of whether an individual is an employee or an independent contractor is then to be determined by applying the Barilla's factors. Now this bill also flat out exempts a wide range of occupations ends from ABC test from the Gecko so instead of providing that these instead providing that these exempted occupations of course would continue to be governed by Brillo. Oh the exceptions include among other things A lot of licensed professions such as licensed insurance agents certain licensed healthcare professionals registered securities brokers or dealers investment advisers direct sale salesperson's real estate licensees commercial official fishermen workers providing licensed barber or cosmetology services and others. They quote as performing work under a contract for professional services with another business entity or pursuant to a subcontract in the construction industry. So that's a lot now. What does it all mean overall I think? Ab Five really means that employers are now going to be very clear. They're going to need to be very very clear clear. And to understand the accepted occupations so that they can be sure that they apply the correct test when they're attempting to classify an individual as an employee or an independent contractor. Need to keep in mind also that the ABC test is really an all or nothing. Test all three factors have to be met if you're using the ABT's ABC test for the individual to be classified as an independent contractor while the Burrito test requires a weighing of the facts against a lot of various factors overall. Really my best advice is to seek legal counsel at this point if you are an employer or an employee employee attempting to determine which classification tests should be used to classify you or before making classification decisions. It's just super for complicated at the moment. Hopefully as this legislation works through and it gets applied and it works through our system It of course likely going to be litigated which will help in the long run give us all a more clarified view of what the statute actually stands for all right? That's a B five. Let's move onto ab nine. Which I think is significant as it impacts the Department of Employment and housing's statute of limitations for bringing acclaim of harassment discrimination retaliation so the existing D. H. Deadlines for filing or statute of limitations for filing claims of harassment discrimination? Retaliate retaliation is one year. Ab Nine extends that deadline from one year to three years And that's from the date of the last act of harassment discrimination in retaliation of course unless an exception applies to extend that with Ab nine. I think it's really significant because three years is a long time so so employers are going to really need to be diligent about documenting complaints from employees and organizations response to those complaints. I think that document retention in policies are going to need to be amended to reflect this new time limit to prevent premature discarding of possibly relevant documents such as complaints investigations or resolutions and then documentation performance issues. Disciplinary actions in termination. Decisions are really can. I need to be more accurate in. They'll that they reflect what was actually happening at the time of the incident. So in certain cases you're going to need to make sure at least as far as documentation goes I think the exact words that were used. What were the steps that were taken and the legitimate reasons for taking those actions meaning disciplinary actions should really be tied as much as possible to policy violations which policy violations weren't affected? The time you need full names of the individuals that were involved or interviewed. I can't tell okay. How many times now with even just a one year statute of limitations? It's difficult when somebody says. Oh Yeah Barber was involved and so was Tom and I think pete was there. Well try and go back a year and figure out who those who you know. All of those people are without a last name or more context is really difficult and and now we're going back three years and in a company that has maybe high turnover. That could really be difficult so I think all of those factors are going to play into that all right moving right along we have. Ab Fifty one eighty fifty..
