Outsourcing election cybersecurity to volunteers
"Election day in half a dozen states and another opportunity for election officials to sort out just how to run elections and a pandemic as roughly eight thousand jurisdictions prepare for November. One concern is cybersecurity, and if they're systems can withstand any kind of hacking. Some of these election officials don't have the strongest security background. So they need training on setting up things like secure password in two factor authentication to help the University of Chicago created a program called election cyber surge to connect election officials with cybersecurity experts. Maya warm in is the executive director of the initiative and she says, there are a lot of bad scenarios May. Be someone gets locked out of their system maybe the voter roll can't be accessed and they aren't able to print the list of registered voters, and so they don't have any way to verify when someone comes to vote if that person is registered to vote, there are also some pretty egregious misinformation attempts. So you could have a website where you could find your polling place and have had all of that information changed and be inaccurate or Asian about when the polls close being tampered with and people not knowing or thinking they have an authoritative source, but not realizing that that information has been intercepted and changed with militias intent. Well that's kind of terrifying which would imply that perhaps these are things that state local maybe even federal officials would value enough to pay for them but you're organizing volunteers to do that. How did we get here? We're here. So I guess the most productive thing is to go forward from here. I. Think that more from the federal government would be great and I think that educating the election officials and then giving them the tools on how to implement what they've learned. Is definitely where we need to be an until then we're here to help. If, we're talking about things like good passwords and not being vulnerable to probing or hacking two factor authentication. What does that tell us about sort of the gap in cybersecurity knowledge for these eight thousand people. Substantial I mean it's And maybe that's something we could look at historically election security has met physical security. Where do we keep these machines? Where do we lock up these ballots? WHO has the key? Obviously, we're well past that now, and so what we need to do is prompt election officials and create an appetite across the country for people to have. To want to demand the safe insecure elections that we all kind of expect to just happen how are you vetting these people who basically might get an entry into the technology and information systems of local election offices? So that's that's where the election official we will encourage them and I'm sure that they would not need any prompting here to follow their standard policies and protocols for working with outside people. Whether, it's a confidentiality, a nondisclosure or you some other contractual guideline or requirement for working with understanding their unique challenges and systems. So they know how to work with outside parties and we encourage them to follow what they would normally follow when they're working with someone outside of their core staff.

A new hotline helps gamers with harassment and bullying
"Games have become a huge release for lots of people. Especially, the many who are entering their six month of some sort of corona virus lockdown in June sales. Video Games were up twenty six percent from a year ago. But online harassment has been a problem in gaming for years and in June dozens of women accused streamers, people who broadcast their gaming on twitter youtube of sexual harassment, abuse or assault. Now time video game activist is launching a hotline for people who play Games, or work in the games industry to get support, Anita? Sarkisian is executive, Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency I. think that's streaming is a new medium and that while it's the same old abuses of power, it might look a little bit different or it might play out a little bit differently. If this isn't a workplace issue, you don't have an hr to go to if you even trust your hr right like a lot of people don't rightfully. So and so what does it mean for a community to rally and to reckon with abuses that are happening how? How do we hold people accountable in a space that doesn't really have mechanisms for it, and I think those are some of the questions that were starting to ask and understand like is it that we just kicked people out of our communities? When enough? When when someone, who's brave enough to come forward tells her story of abuse. How do we put survivors victims I when we're talking about like, what does it mean to create safe communities and spaces? Is there also an aspect of that? That says, Hey, company, you need to be responsible for some of this as well and bringing them. You know what should have already been irrefutable data but view. Yes. This is this is that tension of we know that you've known that this has been going on, where have you been So we need to move out of this sort of reactionary space and into really reckoning with from the ground up, how are we building our workplaces in our communities to deal with the fact that these abuses can happen and to really center victims in that? Right. How do we deal with it so that we can try and minimize these issues from happening at all. Let's talk for a minute about the other side of the equation, talk to me about the unique issues that come up for people who make video games 'cause. I. Think maybe not everyone is familiar with how tough that industry can be in the games industry. We have really cute little word to describe overworking. And it's called crunch, and this is something that I think we see in tech in general. But specifically in Games, I don't think there's a separation between the issues around crunch and burn out and what we're talking about in regards to abuse because they come from the same root of not really trusting or caring for the humanity of your workers. We see that so much Especially, the really big game studios. Do you see you've been at this for a long time and I admire your strength because? Man Do you get beat up on the Internet? And probably in real life too. and I wonder do you see improvement? Do think things are getting any better? You think they'd have a canned response to its. At this point because I get asked a lot and the answer is complicated and I think that anyone who answers that in a way that isn't complicated isn't seeing the full picture. Right. There is something to just acknowledge here when you've been in these spaces, right at any activists that's been doing work for a long time is tired and it's a lot harder to give to be hopeful and to be optimistic and to see the bright side of things. So I just want to preface acknowledge that like we we all kind of need a rest it to be honest. and. It affects how we talk about and look at change. So. All of that is to say in some ways. Yes, and in some ways, no feminist frequency has been collecting data for the last five years and the the major game studios that announce games every year at e three, which is our biggest biggest gaming events. Now, that didn't happen this year, but they're still these announcements and what we found when we collected the data of the gender identity of the playable characters games is that over the last five years. We have seen almost no change. The lowest point was three percent and the highest point was nine percent and female characters as protagonists like that's five years of time that there's not much change there. Now, there's other change in the data, right? That shows that games that have a gender binary option that have character choice where it's an array of characters you can choose from that's increasing, but we're not seeing a statistical increase in the amount of female characters were seeing as protagonist. Another data point is that yeah, we're not seeing quite as. As much agree just sexism. It doesn't mean it doesn't still exist and it doesn't mean there's still a lot of work that needs to be done but I think we are seeing some shifts in the industry, and that brings us to what's next. Right. We need to be talking about the stories that are being told, the ways that mechanics are being designed, who's getting hired, who gets to tell those stories. There's still a lot a lot of work that needs needs to be done as we're moving towards creating a more inclusive games industry. Anita Sarkisian is the Executive Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency. The Games, and online harassment hotline is launching today. We'll have a link to it at marketplace tech dot.

Robots are getting personal during the pandemic
"The. The pandemic could seriously kick start living and working with robots from American public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm Ali would. This week on marketplace tech, we're reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic future. One of those innovations has been waiting in the wings for a long time robots. Robots can do jobs that are too dangerous for humans or just make life a little easier and even offer some friendship during lockdown. A Howard is a robot assist and professor at Georgia Tech. She says, the pandemic has been a push for robotics of all types. One of the things if you think about a human and peoples relationship to robotics, it's been kind of a love hate relationship like most people, they might buy a Roomba, for example, but a lot of like I'm not. I'm not doing that like robots please now. But what we've seen now is Is. There's this adoption of robots in the home in the workplace in hospitals and clinics because it fulfills a need that cannot be filled by people anymore the it seems like there are lots of different aspects to this, and it's and some of it is you know maybe some have their cleaning lady come and and they just need help 'cause we're cooking and home all the time can be a mess, but there's also. Robots in the context of medicine and robots in the context of companionship. Talk a little bit about these various roles that were seeing become more necessary. Yes. So I would categorize them into bucket. So there's the set of robots that are being used for addressing issues with pandemic. So it's robots are being used in hospitals and in stores to clean and disinfect. So that's that's a needed attribute that robots are able to feel. But then there's also the the robots for the home environment that provide us a little bit of the social interaction and is because there are robots, we design them that put in us and understand humans, and so they can be emotional, they can be reactive and because we are are. Not able to interact with those outside of our home as much of the robot, it's it's a replacement, is not the best replacement, but it's gives us a little bit of humanity that we can touch with and interact with, and so there's an increase in these types of devices and development and products. As you kind of look ahead at the next say, six to eighteen months. What do you think is going to happen in this field? How faster companies can remove and pivot and adopt? And I would say exponentially except that you know exponential is based on what the first number is, but I would say exponentially with all the caveats that go with that and it's only because we still need to live, right. We still need to function. We still have human needs and human desires, and we still want to go to work when we can and. Do that safely given that we can't physically do a lot of these things. And robots and fills space. and. So that's in at least in the near future, which is again at least a year based on all the reports. That means it's going to accelerate, and then once we're on the other side of Covid it, we would have become accustom. To adoption become accustomed to robots in the I, and so I think it will become the new norm.

Emmy Nominations 2020: How Diversity Fared in This Year of Racial Reckoning
"ESO The emmy nominations are in and things of course, different this year because a Corona Virus Leslie Jones hosted the nominations from an empty set and she said they flew her in on a private plane to ensure her safety also. So that's how the announcements were made and this year. There were a record number of black actors who were nominated. It was a one hundred into acting nominees this year across lead supporting a guest categories and thirty five of those slots went to black actors. So that's a huge increase from last year. That's great. I'M GONNA. Tell you something them. What they should have been doing. But yes, I'm happy for those people. Right, and so let's talk about of the people who were nominated. Now, I love the Yvan Orgy, of course, posted herself on her instagram page, and that was her telling her parents that she was nominated for an emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for insecure longing. I got nominated for an emmy. This? This goodness and me not even. I don't know. Nothing to do the big one. Pill. Luta von orgy very well desired man von Orgy is super talented. She fills that role of Malaita. Enroll of molly is becoming like a a a cultural figure in black television. So salute to molly man. He, killed that road. She had me mad of hair for real in real life.

Was like you know what is wrong with you? motionlessly, we've been emotionally invested insecure for a few seasons, and that's when you know you got a great show and you get emotionally invested into these characters.
Sales of thermal imaging cameras 'that can spot fevers' soar
"Magical fever spotting cameras. You say we have questions from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. This week on marketplace tech were reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic future part of that future will eventually involve going back to work but we're still working on how to do that. Safely. Some companies have spent tens of thousands of dollars on thermal cameras, which can supposedly spot someone with an elevated temperature from a distance. Do they work or is this just a form of health? Security Theater? Meghan mcardle Carino covers workplace culture for marketplace. I always think about kind of like Predator vision. When we talk about thermal cameras, you know this kind of allows for a big industrial camera that does automated instant temperature taking by mapping infrared radiation from people's skins with a lot faster than having a person standing out there you know with one of those temperature guns taking everyone's temperature but I understand that it's not as good as Predator vision. You know there's a question of accuracy with just how well the devices work. They can be influenced by lots of different things. They take the temperature of the skin on the face cold or hot weather that can affect the temperature of one skin. But the FDA has allowed these devices to be marketed on a temporary basis without any kind of verification of their medical. Veracity. So the FDA does suggest that if someone is determined to have a temperature with one of these devices that they get some other kinds of secondary verification, you know using an internal temperature taker, you know your just your regular thermometer, but there's really nothing requiring these workplaces to do. So what other concerns are there around sort of scanning workers constantly in this way? The fact that these devices generally also come with facial recognition software as part of the deal, you know this is something where you know these systems could kind of become part of a greater surveillance infrastructure that groups like the ACLU are up in arms about having these installed at, say all airports and hospitals and all kinds of businesses all over the place. So if this thermal scanner says that you're sick and you are sent home, you can't come to work. Will you still be compensated for that time? Well, that is. A bit of a question mark. The Cares Act did provide for two weeks of paid sick leave but it excluded a lot of people were talking about gig workers. We're talking about people who work for companies with more than five hundred employees or less than fifty employees. So there are a lot of workers who may get sent home and not be able to collect any pay.
July Mailbag with Jason Moser
"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I
Viruses dont discriminate, but health care often does
"Tech were reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, and some that might create even more inequality. A paper published in June. In the new, England Journal of Medicine, looked at how artificial intelligence is used to determine treatments and care. It found that many of the algorithms used in medicine use race as a variable. For example, many doctors use algorithms to estimate how well a patient's kidneys are functioning, because that's hard to test directly. Those algorithms use several factors including race to make these guesses Leo Eisenstein is a position and why you and Bellevue hospitals and one of the authors of the paper. We're seeing differences in outcomes not because. People who are black, have essentially different bodies, but their experience of being black in this country is essentially different, but encoded in the world of healthcare is the idea that black and brown bodies are different and as a result there's an excuse for why there are inequalities of health in the notion that these are produced naturally by racial differences Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who wrote a book about race in science and medicine, people will say black race predicts for some bad outcome when it's actually structural racism that's operating to put people in A. A vulnerable position where they are at risk Roberts talks about one study that examined why Black Women in Chicago started dying from breast cancer at a much higher rate than white women. Beginning in the nineteen ninety S, researchers concluded it was not because black women's health got worse. It was because there had been huge advances in breast, cancer, detection and treatment over those twenty years, and the best machines are located in private hospitals where more advantage people go Robert said that history makes her deeply worried about the distribution of life saving technology to treat or prevent covid nineteen. There are ways in which racism is built into the. He's rationing guidelines. which are based on a premise that scarce resources shouldn't be wasted on someone who might die at the hospital now because we live in a society that is structured by racism. This tool is systematically going to discriminate against black patients because they have already experienced a society that is set up in a way to produce lower life expectancy for them. Dorothy Roberts is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. And now for some related links, there's more reading about systemic bias and medical treatment at our website marketplace. Tech Dot Org. The nonprofit science and Tech magazine dark has a long piece out this week. About how systemic bias is probably leading to disproportionately higher death rates among black and Brown people in the US, not just because of CO morbidity is associated with poverty or increased exposure to pollution say, but because researchers found that black and indigenous people in particular may also beginning turned away from hospitals or denied testing until it's too late. Yesterday we talked about vaccine innovations also Monday one of the leading. Vaccine Research Companies Madeira announced that it will start one of the biggest vaccine trial in the world, enrolling some thirty thousand people to test out its Kobe vaccine candidate. The maderno vaccine uses the method we talked about yesterday called M. R., n., A. The Viral Messenger that then uses the body's own cells to create antibodies to the fragment of viral particles.

Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.

The tech behind the search for a COVID-19 vaccine
"This week on marketplace tech, we're reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, a lot of hopes are pinned on a vaccine for covid nineteen, and there are in fact, a lot of efforts on that front. Some combined the old ways of making vaccines with new techniques, suppose instead of manufacturing all these viruses are protein, fragments or dead viruses and using that as a vaccine. Suppose we skip that step. Safi call is a biotech investor and author. He's describing technique for vaccine development that was invented a decade ago and just take the code for making that fragment. And give it to the body's cells. So instead of having a giant lab and a warehouse, cranking out these proteins that we then put into lots of vials and deliver billions of doses around the world. Your own cells will be the manufacturing plant while this technique is super promising, it hasn't yet lead to a successful vaccine any disease mainly because there's a huge shortage of funding, the problem is there hasn't been enough incentive to work in infectious disease. SARS cove one which came out eighteen years ago. The first sort of version of the SARS virus, eighty percent genetically identical to the current SARS Cov virus. We had started some promising work in promising drugs and promising vaccines against that first SARS. Virus. Some of which may have been enormously helpful these days there is plenty of incentive to both cure and treat covid nineteen, because says even by the time we get a vaccine, we might have much better success at preventing deaths from the virus like HIV. There's no vaccine, but drug development has turned the virus from a fatal condition to a chronic one. Every month we get more data wet drug works, and it's not just the exciting stuff of Heya scientists in the lab came up with this awesome new molecule that nobody ever saw before and radicals the virus on first contact. That's not how it works. Sometimes it's like well a pretty boring old drug. That none of us thought mattered very much. Actually works or the right combination by itself. It's okay, but if you combine a and B, it's really amazing. Those are kind of the they. They don't make sexy headlines. But they're really important. So despite all the very bad headlines, because said he's feeling positive is just the number of shots on goal that we have and for most diseases. Maybe. You develop five drugs or ten drugs in clinical trials. Today we have over three hundred treatments in development for covert of US working in
Mariko B. Ryan - The Opposite of Fear is Freedom
"Wondering if you could just stop by. Giving us a little bit of your background and might tell us about where you grew up. Sure. Thank you for having made by view if I may start with something slightly different, and then kind of Wolf into your question, it feels right this point knowing that you're gonNA have USTRALIAN lesson, and possibly some New Zealand looseness, listeners and Mahdi listeners live in Australia. To greet them out traditional way so if you don't mind to do that and they go into Chris Hayes. Yeah let me to buy a native. The Mahato Hawk of the cut th-wa. They not cut the auto thin lot further fatwa unlike a made Tina yet to. while. The Tate Ottawa. Took it. So I've just greeted them and let them know who I am. Tribal is speaking that I'm from the northern. Off said Ottawa, and what we, the in the region that we call tied, took it so I have placed myself now in a location. For your listeners. Thank you for that. We did I grow up now this this will take me out of my tribal in grew up in Oakland. I was a child of parents and grandparents who had been part of the Ibanez Ation Price Ace that occurred during the fifties and sixties so the government. Made some economic policy decisions, which made that many of my relations hedge leave tribal areas to find week. I'm a child of those. Generations brought up in Oakland end lift or conceivable years to Levin L appliances in new. Zealand as well which I think was a very positive thing to do to get out of a US associate like this. And experienced the region's. Pivotal years because they caused mess cultural disconnection. And, they enabled the government to grab huge tracts of land, making it impossible for many Erie tune in my family and my upbringing. was part of the impact where we could go what we call home to travel lanes, but we no longer had lanes the so we couldn't retuned to love. And sorts so that whole part of my life now I look at it. In terms of what historical periods did I grow up and? What was my experienced during that time had an impact Mian tombs of going forward as a young. Girl in thin woman unto the swilled. And what have I been able to extract? From the things that we'd lost by being why from l.? A. And I gained, so they were really interesting. Innovation Spring, curious in my growing up is. My Molly side. But we were really fortunate as well because my father and grandmother who lived close by maintained connections very strongly with a tribal areas, so we travel back and forth as whichever back and forth Tortuga liens constantly I remember vividly. It would take us more than twelve hours driving to get what is now about a five hour drive. And the roads were pretty rough, but it gave me a really sound connection to my roots, and we didn't become strangest to tribal land and to our entities. So in that respect. We were very fortunate. That wasn't the case for many of my relations who? Lived and different eras around the country, and many moved over to Australia and been have been unable to reconnect. Yes so, that's that's that Christian. Beautiful and sorry sounds like it was a real priority and our real conscious choice feel family that, even though they might have been physically moving away from these tribal lands that really wanted to maintain that connection, and as a what astray leading girl I'm really love to hear more about like what that looks like in your family life. It looks different now than it did when I was a child so when I was a child, I remember my my father, my my parents and his relations. Attending what will we code land meetings and Oakland so we're in a very politically charged time, so they were very conscious of the. Bureaucratic. Colson wheels that had been put in place to land off them. And they had to fight a beer credit in cool system in order to hold on to name, so there were several land to meetings are record as a child where people would get together and figure out how they were going to respond to a very complicated legal system that was biased against them. And so I remember very much being a part of that in an although I, was more likely to be outside playing with the other children I do recall many times sitting inside the Ramos Waylon this name. To what was being seed in also hearing? On natives because? Switching, languages constantly throughout the conversation which I said do it in a book. It's a kind of a reflection of my neighbors of how the language switching was to so fluid.
Social Media Takes Baby Steps in Dealing With Hate Speech. Time to Grow Up?
"Hate speech has gone way up since the police killing of George Floyd in May according to analysis out this week from the company double verify hate. Speech has increased by nearly forty percent around the country. facebook continues to advocate a relatively hands off approach to speech twitter this week did take down thousands of accounts related to the conspiracy group. Cunanan, saying it will take action on accounts that could lead to offline harm. And offline harm is something. Researchers have documented and warned about for years. Defying Gauche is Co. director of the digital platforms democracy, project. At Harvard he says. All of this is still moving way too slowly. I don't think that they have the incentive to do so until a public sentiment rises up and they're almost forced to do something. That's just not a good situation I think it's very harmful for society and for public democratic interest to have to wait until people get so angry at these platforms that therefore stacked i. Just need a better regulatory system overlooking them. Well and we've also seen data I mean. There's people getting mad at platforms, but there's also it sounds like recently since the protests over George, Floyd's killing started. There's been a market increase in hate speech. What are the consequences of that and isn't that enough? It should be what we know is that there's so much polarization especially in this country and George Floyd really illustrates that in in high resolution. It's it's really brought terrible people in terrible ideas to the forefront of our media ecosystem today, and what I hope is that yes, while it's engaging for for many people to to see such hateful content, what I would hope is that companies can start to reorganized and restructure the way that they prioritize content and try to hold our attention by thinking more about what people really want to see, not such hateful content. You know I think. Companies often say that this is a problem of. Of Scale facebook has specifically said this that there's just you know. There's just no way to stop this kind of speech at scale across the entire world. Do you buy that? Do you think the companies do or do not have the technical ability to do this? Companies like facebook absolutely have the technical capacity to be able to prevent the spread of. Hey, let's be real about this. facebook pours money lots and lots of money into artificial intelligence and uses artificial intelligence to profile us. Determine our behaviors in our likes and interests and beliefs in routines. Now could use some about cash toward developing artificial intelligence in ways that immediately detect hateful content. I believe it can and I believe it should I also believe that it's not doing everything you can do to to catch that content.

Frank It Forward: How to Sell Ball Park Franks When No One's at the Ballpark
"The weirdest baseball season in history started last night. The Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season debuted with a clash between the Washington nationals in the New York Yankees, nationals park in the country's capital was packed with. Virtual fans, that's right, the fans you may have seen on TV. Were just images manufactured for the cameras by Fox Sports? In reality, the teams play to an empty stadium because of covid nineteen. This season teams will play only sixty games down from the typical one hundred sixty two right now. There's no intention to have many live fans at any of them just TV cameras. We won't get into the debate about why Fox decided to manifest virtual fans complete with recorded sounds of cheering applause, and the like the TV audience know. Today, we're interested in one of those things that like baseball. Itself has always seemed timeless the stadium hotdog. Too, many of us me included a hot dog goes with the baseball game. The way hot fudge goes with vanilla ice cream. They just belong together, but not this year. Needless to say virtual fans don't order francs with mustard and onions, nor do they reach out and snack a beer from a wandering vendor that's leaving entire industry, high and dry stadium vendors are out of work. That's giving Ballpark Franks the nation's number one. One brand of hot dogs and opportunity to look philanthropic, while also promoting their dogs to fans, watching Games on the small screen on Wednesday, which not coincidentally was national hotdog, day Ballpark Franks and it is donating one hundred thousand dollars to unemployed stadium vendors through a baseball charity in campaign. They're calling frank it forward. They're also asking fans to tweet their favorite baseball memories along with the Frank. It forward Hashtag of course. For every tweet that fans post ballpark will donate an extra dollar up to fifty thousand dollars within a day. Fans had begun complying. Some tweets were clearly planted by Tyson foods. ballpark Franks owner to get the Frankfurt Frenzy on fast forward, but some were genuinely sweet like a tweet from Ban Molly, Heidrick, she finally recalled attending the thousand fifteen world series game with her dad, telling her for the entire five hours that she would be Zombie the next day at school. She said she almost caught a foul ball and yes, she couldn't stay awake in math class. Her HASHTAG, no regrets. The promotion gives a sheen of sweetness and philanthropy to the ballpark francs, which happens to be America's biggest seller of the process. Meet parent. Tyson foods of course is struggling with its image these days between having covert outbreaks at many of its meat, processing plants, and being under investigation by the Justice, Department for alleged poultry price-fixing, but on a summer night. We need to dwell on the bigger picture. Maybe. What's worth spending time on? Is The marketing rivalry between BALLPARK Franks in America's second largest brand Oscar Mayer that brand owned by Kraft, was revived three years ago when its parent put ten million dollars into removing chemicals like nitrates nitrites from its dogs, the attempt to cater to the clean eating tastes of millennials. It helped nowadays craft hines has been doing well selling its enormous variety of grocery store staples to our newly stay at home nation, but how will it compete at the? No, Fan Ballpark. Hopefully not with a repeat of its attempt from twenty nineteen, a hotdog ice cream sandwich. It was made with. Get this candied hotdog, bits, hotdogs, sweet, cream, spicy, dijon, Gelato, and a cookie Bun, according to writer Michael Clare and a Major League baseball publication called cut four last August. Clare's take on what was clearly a desperate attempt to get the upper hand in the Weiner wars. This hot dog mustard ice cream. Monstrosity needs to return to whatever hell it came from. So. Far Oscar Mayer hasn't made any announcements that one this year may be given covid nineteen craft hines got a little more sensitive about the queasiness factor when it comes to the economics of the Frankfurter fight between Tyson and craft Heinz. The ballpark matters in two thousand sixteen Americans spent twenty million dollars buying hotdogs at ball games, so says the national hot dog and Sausage Council. Council apparently, that's the last time they gathered this debt. So the biggest question this year will be. Will fans watching at home still by hotdogs, or will they just eat? Whatever happens to be for? Dinner served on a real plate, not in a little cardboard dog holding. If that happens, the frank forward campaign is unlikely to give much of an advantage to Ballpark, Franks and hopefully. WHO's out of work? hotdog vendors have already found a way to turn their talents to something more lucrative. And perhaps less greasy.
Covid-19 Causes a Seismic Quiet Like No Other
"Life has been quieter lately hectic at home. Maybe but you've probably noticed less traffic fewer planes, flying overhead new research published today shows it's not just quieter above ground. Coronavirus lockdown also meant a quieting of seismic noise below ground. The world's Caroline Bieler explains when you think seismic waves, you probably think earthquakes. The tremors caused by tectonic plates, scraping against each other and releasing energy in waves through the Earth's crust, but on a much smaller scale we humans make seismic waves to. From traffic. Lane landing and taking off even lots of US gathering in a stadium. Just have a word for this one. They're called football. Quake's anyway. We mostly stopped leaving home this winter and spring a lot of that seismic noise. It stopped. What we discovered is as lockdown measured. Swear taking place in different countries around the world. That was very clear. Significant decrease seismic knows that's Raphael the plan. A researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico research he co authored was published in the journal Science today, and shows manmade seismic noise dropping up to half globally this spring, so that was very interesting, because it was offering us a very concrete observation of decided of people were staying home as a way to protect the job it. It also presented an opportunity for science. Usually, lots of seismic noise makes it harder for researchers to detect small earthquakes. One of the plans co-authors compared it to trying to hear your phone ring at a rock concert this spring. The background volume got turned down. We each and focus on the natural signals. Trying to detect very small is derived, couldn't be absorbed before with last mount of filtering and processing more like hearing that phone ring in a library deploy, says identifying these earthquakes when it's quiet. Quiet is going to make it easier for scientists to find them again. When all that background noise comes back, scientists across the globe have been making local observations sometimes with small seismometers in their basements since lockdown started McGill University geophysicist Yang. Djing says this study brings those observations together to paint a global picture. She wasn't involved with the research. I think this is so far. The most comprehensive Stati on the global scale I'm very impressed by the scope of the study. It's part of a relatively. Relatively new sub field called social seismology, which finds connections between seismic activity and things like economic growth. This is sort of new direction that part of says Molly, branching into so I think there is a lot of contribution that's as you might be able to make in addition to just looking at the earthquake shaking records in this case, seismologists see the vibrations were making or not, as a gauge of how faithfully we're following doctor's orders to stay close to home for the world.

Trump's tanking in the polls
"Anzalone, welcome to campaign HQ David Blah always good to hear your voice. Yeah, you and I met I back in Iowa back in the eighties, not to date ourselves, but the answer. Let me start with this. Let's talk about swing voters for minute. Obviously Joe Biden is doing. Incredibly well in public polls I'd assume he's also doing well in your own polling correct. Yeah I think that it's fair to say that. We're seeing a lot of what the public polls are showing that you know. This is in some ways I. Mean you've seen you've been through a lot of presidential campaigns, and as you said, we've been in this together for over thirty years, so we've seen a lot of historical data and quite frankly what we're seeing right in the public bowls and internal is. Is pretty historic right, so let's start with what we might consider. The Swing Voter Side of the ledger, and then we'll talk about some of the turn out registration targets, so you know you have been part of campaigns world. We Lost White Seniors by twenty points. We a static. You guys right now. white seniors or tied of which means with seniors overall your head. Talk about that like why is that? How much of that do you think it'd be maintained over the next fifteen weeks? I think that there's a couple of things you know. When we take a look at swing, voters There's actually like four really important groups that. You know everyone wants to compare how Biden's doing public Poland's with Hillary but what's really interesting about key group set of moved from sixteen. Is that Biden's not only doing much better and leading in most polling with Voters over sixty five, but he's leading with suburbanites. He's leading with independence, and he's leading with college voters, and so those are like four really important groups that not only did trump win, but is you know Romney won right and so listen? These presidential candidates. Have Different coalition I mean people like to talk about the Obama coalition in. It's important. But Biden's coalition, GonNa look different and clearly part of this started in two thousand, eighteen where we saw suburban women Super White Women College Educated Women but also college educated men really move. I mean take a look at Gretchen Whitmer who is a a a client of ours in places like Oakland County Right She also wanted to Comb County Reagan Democrats which is interesting, which also biting one in the primary, so we're seeing these swing. Voters these groups that Biden is bringing around that is different than the coalitions that we've seen. Seen in the past while at the same time narrowing margins within the Republican base with white voters and also rural voters, and keeping on par with our democratic base, right with young voters in women, and so You know when you, of course you know two thousand eight you. You saw this I. Mean when you are moving, and you have a moment, or if you sustain that moment, you tend to do well almost everywhere, meaning that even in the Republican base voters, rural voters and things like that, you tend to narrow the margins, and they're on margins. In tough places. Is just as important as doing well in some of these other swing areas. Now just specifically unseen Yars I. Listen, you know we see trump's jump rating just getting worse and worse on handling the coronavirus eppendorf pandemic clearly seniors Vulnerable the most at risk, and I think they're reacting directly to that risk in terms of feeling like he didn't get serious enough. He didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan and now with the kind of the surge feel like he's put his head in the sand and I think it's just cost him dearly with that largest age bracket the motor sixty five, and over the last Democratic presidential candidate to win sixty five and over. Is Al Gore so that Kinda gives you an idea. Of! How important this is! Yeah, reminded. Every election is its unique beast so on whether it's seniors suburban voters, you mentioned both college educated women and men Joe Biden right now, doing extremely well. Two questions for you John Do you think he's close to his ceiling there and the job really for your campaign is to maintain those numbers. Do you think there's room to grow? And secondly just how durable do think it is? Do you think that some of these voters are already locked in and is going to be really hard for trump to dislodge them? You get a feeling that where we are today. is very difficult for trump and listen first of all we should say we. We all have a collective PTSD right from two thousand sixteen, and so none of us are getting overseas, but at the same time you know you have to acknowledge the good polls because you know, there's a couple of things that are different from where Joe Biden is from past democratic nominees, including Barack Obama and and twelve. In that, he's also at fifty percent. Right at this point in time whatever what hundred four days and you know there's been no Democrat or Republican candidate you go all the way back to two thousand who's reached that threshold and so you know that's really import. The other part is is that Joe. Biden isn't scary to voters. I mean that's one reason he's leaving with independence. And if you take a look at I don't know the NBC Paul I think is is a good example or one of the most recent ones where I think it's the Fox foxhole. We're Biden is actually above water popularity. Naturally trump is underwater, but trump's very unfavorable is at forty seven percents, and binding I. Think is at thirty one. There's win been one thing that I think when they write about Joe Biden in the primary and the general election is the stability of his vote, right? It really hasn't moved that much. I mean trump's has moved down during the primary I mean. We're biden kind of started at the beginning. He ended at the end. It was very stable. Other people moved all around, but Joe Biden was incredibly stable and I think. Think that we're GONNA see that same dynamic here and we have really in the last several months. The Joe Biden's vote has been incredibly stable it's in a couple of points to the fifty percent mark. trump has moved down right and that is that is a good thing but the stability is important for Joe Biden. One is how voters view him and to how voters view trump. You know there was the I think it was the B. Poll that showed fifty percent of voter said there was no chance at all that they would vote for trump, and so your question is you know, will biden's numbers remain stable, and there just seems to be a universe of voter that is completely cut off from trump and it's because of how people you him prior. Let's think about this. Let's dissect prior to the pandemic. People you know we always heard the same thing. Whether it was you know for for Biden. Her for US Senate race for a congressional race. Is that people disliked? His behavior is tweeting his bowling. He was a jerk They basically just didn't like him as a human being, but hey, you know it's not like some of his agenda and his policies. They like how he took on. The median shook things up in Washington, DC. Now they're problem with him. Is Not only behavior how he reacted in a protest and things like that doubling down. Of Racism but their main problem is. Is that they feel that he failed the leadership test on the three crises, whether it was the health and crisis, whether it was the police brutality protests crisis, and now the economic crisis, which is hurting his economic numbers, and so they're now viewing him His biggest problem isn't just his behavior which they haven't forgotten. It's his lack of leadership or his mishandling of these crisis, so three and a half years in their judging him president. President. They're not judging him as a personality. That is his biggest problem right now, and you know I don't think that you know that's going to change. I think that we have a couple more crises potentially coming very soon, college kids and K. through twelve kids start going to school and mid August and you know it's GonNa be It's going to be really a a really tense time. I think it's GonNa. Be a problem for a lot of communities, a lot of states, a lot of holds and that is the problem. They're going to squarely put. On trump because he didn't take this series at the beginning, you didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan. And that's a problem I mean. We have more crises coming quite frankly. Yeah, now that's that's a great point and your point about his very under favorable I mean if he's sailing into voting time in late September and October with forty seven percent, unfavorable lombardo grounds He's really up against a wall there so John. I, think one of the mistakes. Sometimes you can make whether it's politics. Are Businesses your opponent? Your competition does something puts. Puts out, an ad or new strategy and you know you're like well. That's dumb and of course I've learned like you better. Take a minute and think through why they think it's smart right, but on this suburban thing what what strikes it's almost like trump got a briefing saying you're hemorrhaging the suburbs and he's like Ooh I. Know what I'll say. I'M GONNA say Joe Biden is going to destroy the so like. Do you see any evidence that that tactic which seems to be front and Center for trump, and his campaign now has any chance of succeeding. Listen I think that you know you and I have been through a lot of campaigns, and when you're in a campaign where you're behind, and you're behind eight or ten points, what do you do you just kinda start throwing things at the wall and he tends to throw things at the wall I. Mean You know in one week? He's hitting us on. China I mean all paid TV the next week. He's in his on. You Know Nafta now. Now, he didn't on defunding the police and so they try a lot of different things out right but the fact is is that trump was up on TV in the battleground states for a couple of months prior awesome. You sure what the number is, but I think it's close to fifty million dollars. We never saw the numbers. Move I. Mean you see that in the public calling right? I mean our numbers actually got better. His numbers got worse even though he was on TV by himself and very high levels as well as with his allies, and so you know now. We're on TV. So now we're in a position to you. Know have our own message. Ever Own Voice of voters see what Biden's about What's his agenda and his vision and again we don't see any deterioration a matter of fact, if the last ten days are any indication and again we don't you know. We don't get over our skis on this but the. The. Number of polls have showed this in double digits. is a good place to be. It doesn't mean that we're not gonNA work hard doesn't mean we don't take anything for granted. We know that we just gotTa fight for every vote and we know that it's going to get closer because that's what thing, but that's just. The natural physics of presidential races but I think that again it goes to the opponent meaning Joe Biden. clearly isn't Hillary Clinton. You were talking about very unfavorable in two thousand sixteen. Trump's very unfavorable was forty seven percent, and Hillary's was forty five percents, so there was a lesser of two evils dynamic. Going on, you always see this kind of analysis of what they call double haters, people who dislike both candidate. Well you can't call them double haters this time because they are. They hate trump, but they just kinda just like Joe. Biden are they dislike politics? Right is so his very unfavorable with that group is you know literally I? Think it's a quarter of trump's, and he wins that group by forty plus points depending on the pulled that you see, and that's actually really important again. They don't see Joe Biden scary. They see him as a compassionate relatable. Guy you know they keep the fact that he's lunch Pail Joe and he's a guy. WHO's GONNA look out. For Working Families and he is, you know someone that one. The trump and their allies throw punches. you know they? They're not sticking like their sticking and past presidential campaign. Right, so I WANNA. Talk about filling in the blanks on Joe. Biden, what you guys have started to do, but I want on I. WanNa talk about battlegrounds from and so you made an important point. which is you know when you've got momentum? Momentum in a campaign particularly national campaign. You see you see you see progress everywhere. It's just not in a particular state or region, so I a couple of questions one. Are you seeing with swing voters in particular? Are you seeing the same strength for Joe Biden in the south in the Midwest and the West and I guess secondly I would've thought. Let's say ninety days ago hundred twenty days ago, trump's floors, floor and battlegrounds. Forty six. It looks like it may be lower. So what do you think is I? Mean I agree with you that you know when you see a poll right now. That shows Biden fifty forty. You know the other ten percents gotta go somewhere. And you know probably more of that comes to trump it goes to you guys because you're bumping up against a pretty pretty good and healthy ceiling, but I'm curious kind of what where? Where you see both, is there uniformity in terms of the movement across the country and secondly kind of? Where do you see trump's floor now? Yeah, well, I do think that there's again. We you know you can talk about Joe Biden's feeling, but really when you look at it, historically all the way back to two thousand is just presidential candidates ceilings I mean there's not a lot of presidential candidates who've gotten over fifty percent. Who won right and so the fact that we're in this divided country and there are third party. Candidates who siphoned off universe. Hopefully it won't be as much as two thousand sixteen, and we don't think that it will be but the ceiling is is is almost as close to fifty or a little above for almost everyone right I mean that just kinda historically has how it's happened. Happened in the battleground states like you, you say whether it's Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Arizona I, mean he's having trouble getting to the mid forties right I, mean he in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania in Wisconsin in the real clear politics or the fivethirtyeight average of polls, he stood at forty, one and forty two percent now Florida in Arizona and in North Carolina or Kinda GonNa Act like Florida. And North Carolina in Arizona, they're they're always going to be tighter. Right I mean like Scott Ours no always says Florida tight and that's true now we haven't. You in a lead that's above the margin of error. That hasn't happened very often. That, you and I have done enough Florida. politics polling to know that that is a state that tends to tighten up again. I think that we have. An advantage there because of how we're doing with seniors, and we're competing David I. Mean you know it's like this campaign is going to look a lot like you to you like two thousand eight because of where we're competing? The balanced expansion. In the media markets in Florida, well, where do you WanNa? See I mean I. Remember Two thousand like it was yesterday we were. We were up on TV at high levels. Competing with McCain wear Panama City Talahassee. Jacksonville Gainesville, we were fighting the fight in the panhandle. Right and you know. I mean protect protect I four and all that type of stuff. You GotTa do well Miami Dade Palm Beach etc, but when you see a campaign competing against the Republican in the Republican areas That's what you gotTA. Do to win a place like Florida, and a lot of campaigns often have to make the cost benefit analysis, or make the bad decisions, and this campaign, because it's been under great leadership and the reason, a lot of money gives you the ability to run the race. You need to run to win, right? So I want to just ask you quickly third party because you mentioned it and you live through this horror in two thousand sixteen, where trump could win states like Wisconsin with forty seven point two percent of the vote because the third party vote share was. Higher than historical averages right now in your research and it seems to be true in public research. You're seeing that those numbers may revert more to two percent or less that we've gotten used to write, and that's huge because your ceiling is higher than trump's. I would guess at this point right and so I think that I think that this is how I look at that and you know I mean when you pull when you add third party candidates two point, they always get more on the pole than they actually do on election day right I mean. That's just kind of the dynamic, and so you know you have to. You have to test things a bunch of different ways. But I think there's one thing that we all kind of instinctively know that in two thousand sixteen. There were how a lot of voters Bernie voters etc. WHO stayed at home? WHO VOTED FOR GARY? Johnston voted for Jill Stein and ninety nine percent of them who vote did one of those three things were ninety nine percent. Sure that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, and so they were doing a protests about. those voters now know what's at stake. And they're You know their their enthusiasm. If you will to get vote or get, trump out of office is incredibly high. It's an incredibly intense, and so I think that that dynamic and quite frankly Bernie Sanders and his campaign and the Joe Biden and his campaign have worked together on a plethora of issues. will make the dynamics here much different so we don't see that bleed, and and internally we see we see that you know. Joe Biden just has better with Bernie Voters Than Hillary Clinton did in two thousand sixteen well does tighten up. That's going to be such an important dynamic. So, You mentioned You know the Biden campaign. has a very expansive electoral map again. Something we might not have expected months ago. and you know those are pretty weighty decisions. You're involved in those decisions with General. Molly Dylan and Donald other leadership in the campaign, but John when you think about the places that look now plausible. Not Win them, but you know Georgia in other poll out in Texas today publicly had Biden Upright one Ohio Iowa those are likely not going to be in. My view is two hundred seventy electoral vote, but do you think there's a scenario where you could get surprise? Where maybe you don't win in north, Carolina and Georgia, or is there really a stack ranking on these states? Well as you know, there's always a stack ranking and you were at the you know. Know Genesis in two thousand twelve of analytics right, and so there's a there's a lot of simulations things that you know you and I didn't learn about growing up in this business and there's and there's tipping points, states and things like that. I think that at the end of the day again. The leadership of this campaign is incredibly focused and disciplined, and you can see where we're buying TV. It's public and it's always you know reported on. You know we're very focused on the six battleground states, and you know until you know, they move on to another state. We will be focused on those six states in a very disciplined way, because that is the ball game I think that what's difficult for trump is that he's not only communicating in those six days. He is playing defense right now in Ohio and Iowa, so he is spending a lot of money in Ohio in Iowa. Just protecting himself he's also up in Nevada right, which I don't understand, but you know, right. Right and so she's the one that is actually expanding a lot of money. and I can't say in an undisciplined way. He is in trouble, so he has to expand his hip protected. He has to expand but right now. the Joe Biden campaign is very disciplined and very focused and you know will there be expansion states. You know there's a big map on the wall just like there is you know in two thousand, eight and twelve and sixteen, but you gotta be careful, and you have to be very analytical about doing that.

"molly" Discussed on Secret Societies
"Ruthless killers and assassins and the death toll in school. County were high enough to support those claims around eighteen. Seventy three coal magnate Franklin be Gowan finally acted on Bannon's wishes he set out to purge the molly's from the area and to do so he hired private detective. James mcparland to investigate the Secret Society. According to mcparland he started his infiltration by visiting their local hangouts which mostly consisted of pool halls and saloons. Once he gained their trust and established himself within the community he joined the ancient order of the Hibernians and when he did he confirmed his suspicion. It was a cover organization for the Molly Maguire's from their penetrating. The Molly's was almost easy. It took time of course but slowly almost three years. He learned their names their lives and the secrets of their operation. Most importantly he gathered all the incriminating evidence he could mcparland was so entrenched in the organization that he actually became the secretary of the Shenandoah Division of Mali's from that position he was able to learn intimate details of their plots which included sabotage arson and murder mcparland of course avoided abetting their evil deeds using his insider information. He put an end to every dangerous scheme that came across his desk. He would either warn. Intended targets or use well-crafted diplomacy to convince the Molly's there were other options. Which is to say he saved lives. At least that's what he told. The court mcparland testimony was by-in-large. All of the evidence that the jury had the only real pieces of physical evidence were handwritten hand-drawn coffin notices. They were drawings of coffins with words like this. Is Your House written above them? They were all signed molly. These coffin notices were presented the court to illustrate the intimidation tactics and threats. That the Molly's used aside from that. It was the prosecution's word against the defenses and the accusers. Rhetoric could not have been clearer. The trials were much larger than any individual man's guilt or innocence. They were about sending a message and in a way. That message was a response. To the Molly's coffin. Notices the prosecution maintained quote Molly Maguire's who sat on their haunts rum holes saloons kept by body masters and who they're Cooley concocted. The crime of murder that they who think themselves secure because that they are not in the field of action are just as guilty as the bullet to the heart at the victim in other words. They had to be uprooted. If they weren't they would quote. Destroy the principles of Constitutional Liberty upon which our government was founded. We should mention that. Franklin Gallon was the former district attorney and represented the prosecution for many of these trials. The same man who ran the coal monopoly in the area the same man who paid for the evidence to arrest the man and who funded the coal and iron police that arrested them that Franklin be going as for the Defense. They played a similar case at each trial. Their strategy was to highlight the lack of evidence and plant seeds of doubt in the jury's mind and they did so by proposing some alternative theories for instance mcparland could have been conspiracy the crimes maybe even a molly himself. He was simply throwing his brother. And under the bus in order to appear innocent or perhaps mcparland was a detective. Maybe he was telling the truth. What if he tricked the defendants into suggesting crimes? Maybe even lured them into committing those crimes all to have something to write back to his boss about the most critical moment came when it accused. Molly suddenly altered his story in. May Eighteen seventy six James Kerrigan and five other alleged molly's stood trial for two counts of murder. Initially Carrigan pled not guilty but for reasons unknown. He suddenly changed his story. In exchange for his own life Keurig testified against his Irish brethren and for the state he maintained his own innocence of course but he blamed the other five men for the murders. It was an enormous win for the prosecution. Kerrigan's decision was the straw. That broke the defense's case and their case for every trial thereafter. The jury now had testimony that implicated the Molly Maguire's from an undercover insider and an actual insider but was carrigan telling the truth. According to his wife he was a liar. After James Carrigan sudden. Change of heart. His spouse fanny took the stand entirely of her own accord to testify against her husband. She needed to let the jury know that James was responsible for the murders and not only that he'd act alone. The men he was pending the murders on were all innocent then before the trial ended one of the jurors mysteriously died and a mistrial was declared. All of fannies testimony was erased and when a retrial was held for reasons unknown. She didn't testify again in the end. All five men were found. Guilty of their crimes and hanged. James Carrigan on the other hand walked free and to complicate matters even further. James mcparland the detective. Whose testimony was the primary evidence for the prosecution was said to be romantically involved with James Kerrigan's sister-in-law in the end we know that the jury found twenty men guilty of first degree murder and sentenced them to die their names. Were Doyle. Manley Carol Rory Boyle Duffy Campbell and Donohue to name a few afterwards. The Molly Maguire's disappeared from American history. Which could mean that. The trials did exactly what they were meant to do. Metaphorically cut the head off the snake and leave it to die but we don't think so in fact we don't think an organization like the Molly Maguire's ever existed in Pennsylvania. At least not in the way they were portrayed by James mcparland Franklin Begawan in the late eighteenth seventies to be clear the sixteen men. The mollies were accused of murdering were by no means made up and many of the May have been by Irish miners. Maybe even a few of them by Irish gangs. The distinction were trying to draw. Is that the American Molly. Maguire's were never a large scale underground secret society. They were at the skull and bones. They weren't the aluminum body and they never posed a serious threat to an entire region or to constitutional liberty. I point of evidence. The length of time James mcparland spent infiltrating the Molly Maguire's. He was inside the Organization for nearly three years and still produced no physical proof. He even claimed that he was the secretary of one of their divisions surely he would have come across something he could've used a court and if the Molly Maguire's were as dangerous and ruthless as mcparland claimed how did three years passed without a arrest. Mcparland would only need access to one of their schemes to catch them in action and have them taken in instead. He chose to stop those plans from happening but still managed to use the suggestion of crimes to incriminate the Molly's in court as the defense stated mcparland was being paid to do one thing. Take down the Molly Maguire's from the inside. It was possible. For mcparland to fabricate a reality to appease is incredibly powerful boss Franklin Begawan and gowing had motivations of his own by sentencing. Twenty men to death gallon was able to send a message to every working person in the area. Don't interrupt his business. In fact his message would have been more powerful. If the molly's weren't real every immigrant community and all labor unions heard you can go on strike. You can use all of the legal powers at your disposal. It won't matter I can still have you hang the molly. Maguire's of course were into creation of gallons imagination. They were real secret society in Ireland. Before Benjamin Bannon's fear and paranoia planted the seed of their existence in America like mcparland. Bannon had no evidence whatsoever to support his claims but it didn't matter for the public. He made the real real enough that they were already made. Foil for garments heroism when he needed an enemy to rid from the land. And Sure Ben and may have inspired the Molly Maguire Movement. There was undoubtedly violence in the area but that violence was being perpetrated by other communities. Besides the Molly's other immigrants nativist antiwar activists gangs this no doubt that a group of Irishmen Killed George K Smith and his home on November fifth or that Martin Shakeel. John Reese there were witnesses and they're very well might've been irish-americans to themselves as Molly Maguire's but we can safely assume that the picture that was painted the Molly's in eighteen seventy six and eighteen. Seventy seven wasn't indicative reality as far as Carrigan testimony goes the Irishman who took to the stand. Against the Molly Maguire's. It should be taken with a grain of salt later in his career. Mcparland was found manipulating a suspect into confessing as he did. He referenced. The molly trials and minced no words those who took his advice and testified for the state saved their own neck and went entirely free. Those who didn't suffered maybe the person who gave the most accurate account of the events was fanny Kerrigan. The wife who claimed that her husband James was pinning his crime. On five innocent men. Dat feels true. It acknowledges that the Irish weren't innocent of the actions of a few didn't implicate the whole and the reality was they were living in unjust times. Something needed to change Sherve. Violence is never the answer but even if the mollies were real they were just a symptom of a much larger problem. Maybe the trials of the Molly Maguire's should be examined as a case study in human behavior. Our tendency to blame the symptom and not the source the source being in this case a system that took advantage of poor to the benefit of Franklin be Gowan. Maybe the real people to fear. Are Those men that have the power to affect meaningful change but choose greed instead the ones who pin blame on vulnerable communities in order to create division and to distract the lower classes from rising up. Fear is their power but as Benjamin bannon illustrated. But they don't want you to know is that they fear you far more than you'll ever feared them. They fear a revolution..
"molly" Discussed on Secret Societies
"To stand the American Molly Maguire's it's important to get an understanding of the land where they first took root circumstances that gave rise to their power mirror those of Ireland prior to the eighteenth century the area was occupied by the La- noponte native American tribe around the mid seventeen. Hundreds European settlers arrived in the area. They called it. Saint Anthony's wilderness. The name is indicative of the untamed seemingly untouched nature. The area part of its appeal was it's untapped. Resources like anthracite coal in seventeen forty nine a handful of proprietors paid the Lynagh pay five hundred dollars the equivalent of roughly twenty thousand dollars today for a title to land that included the majority of the minds by seventeen seventy eight. The La- Napa were driven from the region entirely and competition amongst miners really began the coalfields of Pennsylvania spanned seven different counties and covered four hundred eighty four square miles in the northern region the coal could be procured with comparative ease to over simplify. This was due to the anthracite. S- position within the earth itself large companies flocked to the northern coalfields most for railroad corporations who mined coal as both alternative income stream and to quite literally fuel their operations. The southern regions were mined by much smaller operations by eighteen. Seventy there were one hundred sixty unique minor businesses in the South compared to the twenty five major corporations in the north. Ironically those twenty-five corporations would have been better equipped to handle the complexity of mining the lower mines as is often the case our wealth bought them ease. The smaller scale. Enterprises were faced with significant challenges. Of course this disparity also meant that. The businesses in the north could afford to pay their employees more immigrant. Workers were typically the ones willing to work for the meager wages in the self many of them of course Irish. The area was defined by a struggle that plagues America even to this day. Individual Enterprise against corporate dominance small versus Big Business Affair Free Competitive Market verses a monopoly in the early eighteen seventy s one of the twenty five companies from the North expanded their operation. The reading railroad run by a man named Franklin be going then in eighteen seventy three. The American stock market crashed causing the panic of eighteen. Seventy three as the economy crumbled Lou. Collar workers lost their jobs by eighteen. Seventy six fourteen percent of Americans were unemployed. The only people who weren't feeling the effects of the crash were industry. Titans like someone who wrote around in luxurious cars as people starved. Even after the panic Gowan purchased tens of thousands of acres in the lower coal regions over only a handful of years. The one hundred sixty operations in the south became thirty six. The economy gave him an excuse to hire fewer workers for lower wages. And even if well paying jobs came into the region demand was so high. They rarely if ever went to immigrants but in America. The Irish weren't without some form of support. A trade union had been formed in eighteen. Sixty eight for mine. Workers and its creation was driven by those in the South. So it only makes sense that it was here. In the lower coalfields of Pennsylvania that the Molly Maguire surfaced their stronghold was located in Skull Kill County and before long kill is exactly what they would do but it took time before they could make an impact on companies like the reading railroad at the height of the Pennsylvania. Molly Maguire's the population of the county was around one hundred twenty thousand people. Roughly fourteen thousand of whom are Irish immigrants. Almost half of the total immigrant population the earliest American Molly Maguire's likely hailed from the counties. Mayo and Donegal and spoke Irish this similarity. The Irish Molly's is sometimes used as evidence to suggest that this society infiltrated America. But as we've said the significance is negligible. The fact that they were Irish speakers is important because of all the immigrant populations they would likely be considered different. Outsiders the most other and that difference gave rise to discrimination which came not just from employers but from their co workers with all types of backgrounds. Even other immigrants. We may never know what words were exchanged. But we do know the repercussions assassinations. One of the first crimes attributed to the Molly Maguire's was the murder of two Welsh. Mind Superintendents Morgan Powell and John. P Jones allegedly because they favoured Welsh workers over Irish and afterward fighting between the Welsh and the Irish took to the streets in the form of gang warfare. They acted out one of the core values of Mali's protect your own beatings petty crime and murders made for a tumultuous environment in and around school. Kill County the molly's may have been in a new country. But they're standing and their struggle were the same. As those embodied by their Queen Sigh of all-talk and the sheer number of single Irish women who became the heads of their households in America was overwhelming. Irish immigrants were forced to band together to support women and their children. Suddenly fighting for the survival of Queen size became much more literal. The fight to put food on tables had become a fight for workers rights the American Molly. Maguire's transformed into an underground miners coalition. They did with the Irish. Molly's had done for farmers. And they did it nearly eight years before any legitimate labor union was formed in Eighteen. Sixty eight when the miners formal unionized. The mollies and the union shared many goals but they had different visions for how to achieve them as with all secret organizations. The Molly's had the benefit of not being subject to the laws the politics and the red tape of traditional society. They were their own law. The next decade and a half catapulted the Molly Maguire's to fame the term molly. Maguire ISM became what white boy ISM had been in Ireland synonymous with Rural Labor violence in practice they enacted mob rule large groups of men armed with shotguns rifles and muskets. They attacked intimidated and killed those who stood in the way of their vision of justice. Hand-drawn notices were posted for their enemies to see pictures of coffins with warnings on them. Be careful or this will be your house. They walked a fine line between vigilantes and murderers morality and sin and in the end during a long and vicious trial. Sixteen assassinations of Public. Figures would be pinned. On the Molly's it would result in the hanging of twenty of their alleged leaders. Thousands of Irish emigrants gathered to honor them and the service they provided to their community. Most believed they were innocent. Why will there's one theory that could undermine everything we think we know about the American Molly? Maguire's that they never actually existed at least not as they've been portrayed. Some historians believed that American authorities had heard of the Irish Molly Maguire's and they were used as a scapegoat for various crimes when they needed to pin blame on someone or something. The Molly Maguire's became a convenient bit of fiction which isn't to say that there wasn't organized unrest amongst the Irish the coalfields of Pennsylvania. That much we know is true. But we're the twenty men killed in the late. Eighteen seventy s really leaders of one of the world's most secret criminal organizations or were they innocent men hanged for crimes. They never committed killed to cover up the inadequacy of the area police and to send a message to the real perpetrators. This ends now next week. We'll try to get to the bottom of that mystery. We'll take more in depth. Look at the activity and crimes that occurred in the coalfields of Pennsylvania will also explore the trials that sent us. The Molly's supposed leaders to death all in an effort to discover what's real and what's not in one of the world's most secret secret societies..

Campbell stood to face the men sent to take him to his death but before they could shackle his wrists he slammed his muddy hand against the Cell Wall and issued them a warning that mark of mine will never be wiped out. It will remain forever to shame the county for hanging an innocent man. It was June twenty-first eighteen seventy seven in mock chunk Pennsylvania Campbell was being put to death as a suspected member of the violent secret society by Molly Maguire's as he and the guards exited the jail. He saw a living nightmare. A tall scaffolding stood before him with four nooses swinging in the breeze. The crowd seemed to stretch to the horizon. They were minors wives and children. Nobody spoke a word. Their silence was in honor of those about to die for Alexander Campbell. The walk from the Carbon County prison to the gallows was the first time he'd seen the sun in weeks he felt every ray as it warms his skin and he paid attention because he knew the sensation would last. And it didn't but today you can still find a muddy handprint on the wall of Campbell's sell tries anyone might. They can't seem to erase the curse of the molly. Maguire's.

Sorkin went on to write and direct the film adaptation of her Memoir With Jessica chastain and the starring role. The film went on to Gross.

"molly" Discussed on Movie Crush
"Crush Friday. Interview addition and this week, everyone you are in for a treat because I know from lurking around Facebook with a movie Crushers that the Princess bride is one of the most beloved movies. For our listener base. The Crushers love it. I love it. Everybody loves it. I mean, let's be honest here is just one of the great great lovely feel good sweet romantic fairytale movies of all time. And I was really happy that my guests. Molly coffee picked the Princess bride. She's great. Molly is a local production designer who I met a few years ago, everybody when I naively thought that I was going to go out and make a movie, and I thought I had a little money in place, and I had a script and it had some actors on board, and I started legit interviewing people and go into locations and Molly was her name was passed along to me by my producer as production designer. She said he's like, you gotta meet with Molly. She's great met with Molly. She was great. And although that movie did not pan out. Obviously, we hit it off Mali's super cool, and we became Facebook friends, and I really. Over the past few years have followed her career via Facebook. And and just think a lot of what she has to say about the world and about women in the film industry and in society at large. She's she's just really terrific. And I appreciate her point of view. She's also friends with Raymond and crag Karen who have had on the show, and Scottie and just has deep roots here in Atlanta, and the film industry, and very talented, very cool lady. So I know you'll enjoy it. Here we go with Molly coffee on the Princess bride. Where are you from? I am from South Georgia. Okay. What part this little town called Mormon that's outside of out Austa. Right. It's basically a produce stand in a caution light, right? It's it was very intense growing up. Really? Yeah. I didn't have anything in common with anybody around me. And I had parents said, I, you know, butted heads with it's funny 'cause like my parents were very difficult, and I have one sister who she her reaction to our parents, and Mike how difficult they were kind of like shut down. But my answer was to just like constantly fight and be abrasive. And and yeah, it was it was a really crazy crazy time growing up. So I ended up leaving before like I didn't finish high school, and I call it running away to join the circus. But then I went to were reading stages for the vans warped tour, and I was like fourteen.

'cause I I know a lot of people like nostalgic for going home and seeing the people, but I'm not the same person. So it's like, it's really I it's really crazy. So you're saying that that small town was full of like cool artists in waiting. It wasn't. So vans warped tour. What year I mean? I don't know much about the world tour, but what year was that that would have been two thousand. I mean, no it would have been nineteen ninety five. Oh, yes. So back when punk rock was still good.

"Does marketplace podcast is brought to you by the university of Florida Warrington college of business transform your future with an MBA from one of America's top ten universities. Learn more at Warrington dot ufl dot EDU slash MBA. Some of YouTube. Biggest stars say YouTube is bad for their health from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. A Molly would. If you are a creator on YouTube you live and die by the algorithm. It's the invisible technology that recommends videos on the trending page or search results or suggestions all across YouTube now, no one, but YouTube knows exactly how the algorithm decides what to promote and what not to promote the controversial process has at times promoted fake news and sensational or harmful content and creator say it's burning them out. You know, the thing about you to visit in all of its glory kind of as a machine, and it makes creators believe that we have to pump up content consistently even at the cost of our life and our mental health and our happiness because if you don't then you'll become irrelevant. That's lilly. Seeing a hugely popular YouTube comedian who just announced she's taking a break from the platform. She's one of a string of creators leaving YouTube, Catherine low is a visiting researcher in the informatics department university. Of California Irvine. She studies harassment and mental health in online communities. I asked her how the YouTube algorithm affects business for creators. So if you can look at a YouTube creators profile, you can look at their videos kind of in chronological order, and you might notice you'll have two million three million two million. And then suddenly it'll be like nine hundred thousand and you'll be like why did what happened with that video, and you know, sometimes YouTubers can figure out maybe something changed, you know, by sort of playing around with their analytics or analyzing, you know, what was different about their video but much of the time they don't get a definitive answer. I mean, I guess we should get really explicit here. You're saying if your video goes from two million to nine hundred thousand and you don't necessarily know why? But what you do know is that when you got nine hundred thousand you got less money right less ad revenue. And you know, you become less appealing to advertisers or sponsorships some of the time. If if you can't guarantee numbers. So YouTubers are balancing all of these very precarious factors. And then you have these other elements where you know, we we call it like emotional or affective labor where YouTubers have to kind of change the way they act and that that doesn't seem like work or labor, but there's actually been a lot of research that these sort of labor of appearing assertain way actually takes on a kind of fatigue the same way like physical labor can. Yeah. How serious is this problem the sort of mental health problem? I mean, like I have an eleven year old who is dying to be a YouTube star. And I sort of feel about YouTube the same way I feel about letting him try out for football or I'm just like on early. Don't want you to do this. I don't think it's good for you. Yeah. I mean, I I don't think that YouTube is good for you too much of the time. And I think that it's also important from the standpoint of what's happening to the the viewers because if somebody gets a lot more erotic if they can't be as thoughtful and their content because. There, you know, having to meet the demands of posting frequently and maybe with lot the appropriate support, then their content, you know, changes a lot, and I think can be less less thoughtful or or less less of a good influence on the people who are watching. So I think that it doesn't just, you know, affect the creators, but it affects the entire culture around YouTube, Catherine lows visiting researcher in the informatics department at the university of California, Irvine YouTube told us in a comment that it wants creators to make videos any quote, healthy and sustainable way and emphasize that it's our them doesn't prioritize creators who post videos, more often than others.
