Sell Me Your Climate Bombs
"Okay. So there are countless outdated old refrigerant tanks scattered around the country and Tim and Gabe say that the problem is you cannot just dump these tanks in the trash you wanted to take it to a dump, their knocking ticket they'll say, no, no that stuff's like hazardous material we don't want here. Material. The only thing you're allowed to dump, there is the empty tank when it's all gone. So you're really stuck it sits there on your shelf you have no use for and it's eventually going to leak through these cylinders cans into the atmosphere. If you're a professional like an auto mechanic or an H. back installer or if you're just one of those tinkers who hangs out at autozone, you might have one of these bad band canisters and. You could pay to safely dump the chemical out, but only a few places in the US will even do it and it's expensive. That's why they're canisters of this stuff just sitting in old garages rusting away and leaking leaking a greenhouse gas that is thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide and getting rid of refrigerant is one of the most important things we can do to address climate change according to a leading climate solutions organization called drawdown. which is why Tim, and Gabe have come all the way to the gas station in middle of Nowhere Illinois to meet a man in a red jeep renegade named Geoffrey. Geoffrey. Geoffrey is standing next to a two foot tall canister refrigerant that people might recognize by its common name Freon. Jim In fact recognizes the brand name Dupont igloo. So what does this is? igloo Freon twelve. So where did you What did you find the material? Jeffrey says a friend gave it to him years ago Kim asks him if he was in the Business Jeffrey no but my friend was he said he got the refrigerant because he figured maybe he'd use it in the systems of antique cars that he was thinking about rebuilding, but he never got around to it. Nineteen years. Business on shelf shop. How did you hear US oft up on my facebook one day At this out of the blue, a facebook ad popped up that said, we pay good money for old refrigerant Jeffrey. I have some of that answered the Ad, and now here we are Tim and Gabe take a sample from Geoffrey. They do a couple of calculations where they add up the weight of all the refrigerant and have Geoffrey signs informs you're signing here that your. This is your material. Now you're handing over to us. You're also a test saying that it was sourced within the United States and not the US government or a native American tribe. Correct correct. Okay. And then gables out a wad of bills and starts flowing them one by one into Jeffrey's hand. Material. So. Shop. The Money. Except for the signing of the receipt and everything, it feels almost like a drug deal cash transaction in this dusty remote middle of nowhere. Tim wouldn't tell US exactly how much changed hands but he said it was in the low hundreds and yet this is Tim Gabes legitimate business. Their company is called trade water and they make pickups like this of all sizes from a one pound can the size of a spray paint bottle tweet forty, thousand pound job they did a while back where they vacuumed the refrigerant out of an old industrial cooling system after a bit of Chitchat Tim and Gabe wrap up with Geoffrey Geoffrey tells them. If he hears anyone else with spare refrigerants, he'll send them their way. Right on. Jeffrey how is that? That was painless was. Is If you find anymore you know where to call welcome you John Here In Europe somebody's got one of the. Transaction. Takes care. Did you hear that Tim just said we'll take good care of it for you. Yeah. Well, me and my how to Save Planet Co host we're listening in on this deal. Of course, we're on facetime with them and my co host name is Hannah Elizabeth Johnson. She's a scientist and she and I asked him and Gabe about that particular comment and you said we'll take good care of this for you. Because you you aren't GonNa take good care of it. You'RE GONNA destroyed. Exactly. Probably not We, don't really. We don't really talk about that very much. Yeah. They transfer all the gas from the little tank they collect into a huge tank that looks kind of like a missile and then they drive that missile looking tank to a fancy destruction facility. Essentially, an incinerator permited hazardous waste. Rotary, King Incinerator. So you burn it we burn you burn. Your like setting it on fire and we are. Do you see gas in flames? Is that what it looks like? We don't generally watch it being burned. View, it's see to their view window flame. Yeah. A big bright flame incinerating refrigerants at this special facility actually neutralizes most of the dangerous stuff ninety, nine, point, nine, nine percent of the bad stuff doesn't go out into the atmosphere time bomb diffused, which if you're trying to address global warming, this is a fantastic thing right after all this is Tim and Gabes mission. So, why don't they tell their customers about it? Well Gabe says, their customers aren't always on board with that mission. In fact, a lot of them don't even believe global warming is real. This is A. Farce that's been pulled by the EPA or a U.. N. and so people will hang up and say I'm not going to sell to you. I'm GonNa find someone else who's GonNa use this the way it was meant to be used. Now some people are really attached to their to their refrigerant. So now generally. Advertised we're gonNA destroy because we just never know somebody that will make people uninterested in the deal. That's interesting because it seems like. Is My co host I oughta it's all over your website, right? Like your website makes it pretty clear why you're doing this and if people are finding you through facebook ads they. Already know are you on the trade water website? Yeah. So. When we do these transactions, we actually use a different name doing business. Call refrigerant finders. Go to refrigerant finders website. You will see a different framing of what we do. The homepage of the treated water website has the words reducing the world's carbon footprint in big letters huge font over background of leafy Green Fernley. The refrigerant find a website there no leaves there's no mention of climate change. It just says we buy your old refrigerant and has pictures of men in work boots carrying around rest canisters.
Why Talking Politics Could Be Hurting Your Career
"SO MONSTER DOT com. PADS done a survey. And they pulled people and they came up with that close to forty percent of American workers, Joe Engage in political discussions at work. Now, this is funny. In the Control Room Madison does not engage in political discussions probably not even outside of work she does not. Joe Engages in political discussions at work at home. Sleep talking sleepwalking he is engaging in political discussion, but I'm trying to cut it down a little bit. I'm not judging you. I'm just saying that it's very funny to me that this is what I'm teaching on today and you and Madison are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Yes, we are. All right. Here's the breakdown nearly forty percent engage in active political discussion at work thirteen point nine percent. Of people actively engaged. That's Joe I I thought it would be higher by the way, but it's it's right at fourteen percent. Thirty four point, eight percent. Say. They listen to political discussions at work but don't participate. and. Then twenty three point one percent passively engage in the discussion. So, that's where the forty percent engagement number comes at I gotTa tell you. That if you're listening but not participating, you're engaging. So I think that number's higher but I get what they're saying when it comes to engage because here's what Saudi these thirty four point, eight percent that say well, I'm listening but I don't participate and these people are going. Well, that's not engaged yet is because here's what's happening there listening and later when when everybody that's like really engaged leaves they're talking about it to everybody else and this is my point why this is dangerous. Here's the deal I used to work in politics. Joe knows this Madison as. I worked at it fulltime from the age of twenty, two, twenty three and then got out I love politics and the game and I love following it. Okay. I'll love it as much as anybody I. Enjoy a good political discussion as much as anybody. Well here's one thing I've learned Joe and I'm passing this onto the audience never once in my life ever. Have I heard somebody with a strong political opinion in a social gathering in an engaged conversation or debate. Let's be honest. That's what it turns into. I've never seen or heard somebody change somebody's mind Thanksgiving table or at the workplace never once. So. What happens is you engage? and. Their spirited conversation. It turns into possibly a debate. or a contentious situation and no matter how strong your logic is no matter how clear you're talking points are Joe you are not going to change the person's opinion. You're not. It just never happens. It's never like Oh, really. So. Here's the point when politics come up. It's probably best. To just listen not participate. That's what thirty four point eight percent of people are doing. Probably a good idea to just listen and not get involved because here's what happens. One conversation happens and I've done this by the way and you think you're having a fun healthy spirited conversation and you make a really strong point on something and somebody who's not engaged with you walks up and hears it and they are of a very different opinion. Now, all of a sudden you offended them. Don't even talk to them.

AP Source: Chargers' team doctor punctured Taylor's lung
"Adam, Schefter just reported that tyrod Taylor. The reason why he did not get to play this past week in an intern air bear started for the first time against Kansas City chiefs at ended with hitting a fifty eight yard field goals and another fifty eight yard field goal. But a highly contested matchup between the chargers the chiefs it is now being reported that the chargers team doctor accidentally punctured his own quarterback tyrod Taylor's lung just before kick-off. Sunday while trying to administer a painkilling injection to the quarterbacks cracked ribs league and team sources have told ESPN. According to my sources. Adam Schefter says, now, this sounds terrible whenever you give your I read this and like especially the way she afterward it there the chargers team doctor punctured his own quarterbacks lungs, and that sounds absolutely bad and I was kind of mind blown by this believe it or not. We are given a heads up on this yesterday but we're not a big news breaking world I don't want to dive into the news breaking world because there's a bunch of Peron in sharks in. Going ever dive in there. So I asked around to a couple former teammates in friends of mine that have maybe gotten the same procedure how the hell can something like this happens this sounds terrible in the answer I got from everybody who has had this procedure done, which by the way is marketing, which is in the Novacaine. There's another Cain the mark which is. A numbing agent basically that gets shot directly into the area that is injured for instance, in this particular case, the cracked ribs. Now, the reason why it's done. So close to game time is because it only lasts four four and a half hours so they can't get it done in the morning because the numbness wear off, they can't get it done the night before because. Off they have to do it right before the game, which is why it was surprised to everybody that air bear was starting over tyrod Taylor, including Air Bear, and I would assume the entire chargers offense. Now, what happens though just like whenever you're in surgery now granted this happened to the people I talked to harm percents short happened to tyrod Taylor but just like whenever you go in for surgery for anything, they tell you the possible side effects this could. Potentially happen because surgery this could potentially happen. It's like basically this small print at the bottom of contracts like, Hey, this is all the good looking come from this but also this can happen every person that I talked to got a similar treatment as this said that they were told by the doctor that there was a chance that along could get punctured in the process because when you're giving a shot into the ribs, the long obviously is right there one. A. Hundred percent sure of tyrod Taylor. Was told that before we got the shock. I'm just telling you what I was told by people who got very the exact same situation here free. The bruised ribs are cracked ribs allegedly this is a much more common practice than even I knew about I've probably seen guys potentially get this shop before and didn't even know this was happening because I had nothing to do with me but I guess this is a pretty Common practice whenever you have a crab or bruise rib because it works like a charm I was told and I was also told that they shoot it a little bit above wherever the crack or the bruises in. Let's just settling in for four and a half five hours. You feel amazing. It's that next day you see more that night when it wears off that you feel absolutely terrible thus why I am incredibly happy that I played a position where no motherfuckers. where I could potentially need that. So that is what happened. We obviously tease piece for the punctured lung and the cracked ribs for tyrod. Taylor but from my knowledge of my research calling people that got a similar thing, they said that they were told that was a possible outcome. It's like point one percent that it could happen. But in surgery just like anything in the medical field, there is obviously a chance at something bad to happen it happened tyrod Taylor. I'm not giving an excuse for the doctor do your fucking job right? Especially whenever the people that told me, they said it's like a ninety nine. percent chance it goes well and nothing happens. So if you get that one percent and it's a failure, obviously the doctor did not do here and I would assume would have to answer for that. But that is what I've been told about this entire process. That is why it was such a shock to everybody including air bear who said he was surprised in ancient said, let's go and do this. So I think that is why everything happened the way it is I've been told I'm not a doctor they are not doctors but a punctured lung on punctures itself somehow I don't know that means I guess. Shout out to the human body for puncturing itself. He could play week to week is really could potentially play next week. What do you say day breaking news just from in report he's not GonNa play this week harbored is going to start. Okay. So here we go. There's big news not playing this week. So as long isn't completely on punctured and also. I think that is why because the way one down in him losing the starting job was actually the chargers fault that is why Anthony Lynn came out and said unless. tyrod is he's still are started because I would assume Anthony Len former player was like we gotta fuck this guy here. So whenever he was asked about who's the starter even after incredible debut by Air Bear in the game that they had against the Super Bowl Champs Anthony Lynn probably was. I mean, we couldn't say it obviously because worn one hundred percent. Sure because at the time they're probably still reviewing and Anthony Lane. Prada. Didn't get a chance to do a full checkup on house whatever the case maybe didn't and he didn't want to be like. tyrod Taylor's by the way. We're the reason he's out and he is we made this disease like they. Couldn't say that. So that's why I think I was confused by the way insulin handled the question I think a lot of people are potentially confused but now we know air bear starting this weekend tyrod Taylor not only has cracked ribs but also punctured lung hopefully that unpunctual quickly we're not doctors they have no idea but it is nice to know that this type of thing does happen has happened in the past we probably. Haven't heard about it for whatever reason, and this is something that happens on a regular basis with success. So it's not like they were going above and beyond to make him put him on the field. This is something that has happened in the past
Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable
"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

Bank stocks knocked as Suspicious Activity Reports come to light
"Bank stocks getting crushed today a new report about the big firms dealing suspicious finds Wilford. Frost Scott the details wealth harmless. So Bank stocks were down sharply today following large declines for their European counterparts, Deutsche Bank for example, closed down nine percent on European trade. Standard Chartered down about five percent both hitting twenty five year lows in London trade earlier US banks ended up down about four percent. This is in part due to investigation by the International Consortium of investigative journalist that highlighted suspicious activity from various banks in the past specifically money laundering following a review of more than two thousand, one hundred reports filed by the US Treasury financial crimes. Enforcement Network a slew. Mentioned including I said HSBC Bank Standard Chartered JP Morgan and Bank of New York Mellon amongst others clearly, this activity is embarrassing for the banks however important to note in the past and that government and regulators were already aware of these details since suspicious activity reports by their very nature all reports between the banks and the government in the first place for example, for example, Deutsche Bank told me this is not new information to us or regulators Today off therefore much more down to the broad cyclical selloff linked to covid economic headlines, and also that Supreme Court news further making a stimulus bill less likely something that banks are disproportionately reliant on compared to some other
Dr. Richard A. Van Etten: Cancer
"Please welcome to the show Dr Rick van how you doing. Thank you very much Andrew and Brittany I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be able to come and talk to your talk your listeners today. Yeah. Well, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. So we're GONNA be talking about obviously cancer and how you can prevent cancer do your best to prevent it. But as I mentioned in the Intro, most likely someone knows someone who's had cancer or they've had cancer themselves even it's pretty it seems like it's touches a lot of people but can you kind of tell me how many people does cancer impact on a yearly basis? Well. Thank you for the question Andrew. The lifetime risk of getting cancer is approaching thirty eight or thirty, nine percent. So more than one in three Americans will get cancer during their lifetime. So that explains what you said that basically almost everybody is either been personally. Involved with cancer knows a close family member or a loved one that's been stricken by cancer. So some of the statistics nationwide in the United States, there's about one point seven million people diagnosed each year with cancer. And they'll be about unfortunately six hundred thousand Americans will die every year of cancer. Here in Orange County it's interesting that cancer has overtaken cart diseases, the number one killer, and as soon gonNA happen nationwide. So a very very. Prevalent disease what kind of has led to what's led to that trajectory? Why is that happening? Well, actually the the the death rate from cancer has been falling and it's been falling significantly over the past fifteen or twenty years, which is a success basically for the research that's gone into it through the National Cancer Institute and other mechanisms. But the fact that cancer is now the number one killer has actually also reflected progress in cardiovascular disease. So doing which used to be the number one killer. So we're doing a better job at preventing. Heart disease through the things that you know about treatment of the risk factors like high lipids, blood pressure, diabetes et CETERA. Right? Interesting. Okay. All right. So we got some work to do on the cancer and Kinda catch up. And, that generally, like I mentioned usually happens through education funding, which we'll talk about in a little bit What types of cancers are the most prevalent today? I know that you specialize are a believe in like blood cancers by what are the most prevalent that people run into so we can talk both about incidents, which is the new diagnosis that we have each year and prevalence, which is the number of people living with the disease at any given time. But the top four in both categories are pretty similar. So there's breast cancer which obviously predominantly affects women but also can affect men. Then there's lung cancer there's prostate cancer which obviously is a male cancer and the last one is colorectal cancer. Those are the big four. Close on their heels are diseases like skin cancer and melanoma that's particularly relevant for Orange County where we have two hundred and eight, hundred, ninety days per year rate. And after that come some blood cancers that I specialize in, which is mainly things like leukemia lymphoma and Myeloma Okay. What kind of leads to these types of cancers occurring out of those top four that you mentioned, what? What's the biggest contributor to people getting? Is it? Is it just genetics you got bad genes or something in your lifestyle or in your the world around you I guess causing it. So they're. Probably, equal contributions both from genetics and from lifestyle. Okay. When I say genetics I mean the cancer is principally in the opinion of a lot of primarily a genetic disease in the cancer cells have acquired mutations that contribute to their malignant or cancerous phenotype, their ability to grow and attack the body. Most of those mutations are acquired in other words they happened just within the cancer cell and they're not inherited. So you don't get them from your mother or your father. Now there are exceptions there are well defined cancer susceptibility syndromes the most the one that may be most familiar to your listeners is the bracket jeans Brca which segregating families particularly people, of Ashkenazi, Jewish descent that are inherited either from your mother or your father, and greatly increase your risk for developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer so that the risk for women who doesn't ever bracken gene mutation is about one about eleven percent or one in nine during your lifetime. If you inherit one of these genes, it's virtually almost everybody will get breast cancer ninety percent risk over your lifetime. So, this cancer susceptibility syndromes are very important the need. For instance when there's a new cancer diagnosis, you need to take a careful family history and in some cases be referred to a genetic counselor to determine whether testing family members is indicated. Yeah. Well, that's interesting that you bring that up because my wife actually we went through that process, and so she was found her mother had breast cancer and through that process they found out, she had the bracket gene Brac to and then and so my wife decided because they kind of give you choice like do you want to get screened? Do you not like you kind of have? Do you want to know more or or like not and stay naive to it I guess and so what I've discovered, we went through it and is interesting out of the split my wife got it and her sister didn't so the fifty, fifty there and. It. Seems like. It's I think my opinion is it's good to know because now they're just more aggressively screening her and is that typically the case when you find out about something like that, you're more your screened even more regularly than the average person should be. That's right. A change basically changes the surveillance. In it not to make it more complicated. But there are some genes like the broncos where the penetrates which means that the chance of actually getting breast cancer. If you have the have, the mutation is very high I think there it's pretty straightforward to decide whether to get screened. Right. There are other mutations that can be inherited that don't increase the risk that much increase it above the background, but it's not nearly as high and there it's more complicated to try to decide what to do about that. But. My advice to your listeners is to seek the advice of a NCI cancer center in a a qualified genetic counselor. Those are the people best qualified to help guide you through that decision making process right? Right. When you're going through like you said they ramp up the screening process if you had the genetic mutation but how does how did we get to discovering these genetic mutations I? It sounds like you kind of have somewhat of a background like you discovered or help discover this protein that was causing leukemia right and. How does that process even work? How do we make these discoveries? How do you make these? Discovery I was involved in is one of these acquired mutations not inherited, but it came about from studies done many many years ago actually nineteen sixty that showed that patients with this particular type of leukemia had an abnormal chromosome in their blood cells. And when to make a very long story short when that was tracked down, it was shown that the chromosome was actually an a Barrett. That was acquired in these cancer cells that lead to the expression of this abnormal protein. And that protein. Hasn't is an enzyme which means that it has a ability to catalyze chemical reactions. Okay and that particular reaction stimulated the growth of those blood cancer cells. So. That led a drug company, which is today is no artis to develop us a drug a small molecule inhibited the action of that protein. And that That drug which has the trade name GLIVEC revolutionized the treatment of that leukemia so that in the past everybody died of this leukemia, unless you had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Today everybody takes a drug likely. And most people go into remission and when they do, they have normal age adjusted life expectancy. That's example would that's Therapy likely that can do to cancer right? So does this all come from these discoveries? Does it come from just? Tons of data over decades like this one you're saying, it came from research started in the sixties and this didn't have until the early nineties. Is that right or wealth the the The structure of the protein was discovered. I'm saying Circa Nineteen, eighty-four which I got involved. The drug development efforts took place shortly thereafter I'm and the was FDA approved in two thousand one. So it's been on the market now for almost nineteen years I and there are many many other efforts in other cancers that are parallel parallel that. The thing that's happened today is because of our new technology and the genomics and the ability to determine, for instance, the genome sequence very quickly that's accelerated the progress that we can make. So what took forty years from sixty two to the drug being approved now can be done in a couple of years. Wow. Everything's happening much much faster. That's awesome. That's great news for those of US living right now.

Snowflake's Stock Price Soars in IPO
"Welcome to pass money a blockbuster debut for the biggest. IPO. Of the year cloud companies snowflake pricing. It's public offering at one hundred, twenty dollars a share closing at two hundred and fifty three dollars a share that is a gain of one hundred and eleven percent. But this isn't the first time. We've seen a monster move in public debut. Let's get to Bop Bassani with more on that Bob. Hello Melissa see you. So you think snowflake over one hundred percent of its first day is a big deal. Not really there's been plenty of companies that have had I ate POPs bigger than that this year loan and they include just take a look here. Biotech firm cure back was up two hundred and forty percent on its first day of trading software as a service firm big commerce up to one hundred percent biotech firm. Berkeley light of nearly two hundred cloud company and Seino up one hundred, ninety, six, percent insurance fintech firm lemonade up. Thirty nine percent on their first day of trading what they have in common is there either tech or biotech firms are they outliers marginally but the first day pop for IPO's this year is notably higher than usual. So the historic first they pop for an IPO usually about fourteen percent. That's. Historically but not this year the average I stay pop in two, thousand, twenty, thirty, six, percent. What's going on? It's not stocks are cheap. The multiple of tech stocks are historically high people are willing to pay more protect because there's just a higher degree of risk appetite out there, and if you're suddenly inspired to start buying these high flying IPO. Cautious. About this look after the first day the post first day returns of other high fliers is not encouraging. So there's been eleven IPO's this year that have popped more than one hundred percent. On the first day they have average a minus, one percent return from the first day closed forward. So be very careful Melissa here big pop on the first day for some of these. But after that very difficult to maintain continued momentum most about you bob thank you good to see you Bob Cassani and who is holding the bag in the aftermarket when these Ip has declined from the first day pop guy probably the retail investor this has been the story of the issue markets. Began though and it continues today. So. You wonder why people get exercise when they see things like this is exactly that I mean I'll say it I'm not. I'm not a banker I never was a banker and I'm sure to upset some people by saying this but. There's no way to put it other than the fact that this was completely misplaced. Now I'm sure the great bankers are J. P. Morgan and Goldman and whoever a city I think was on this deal and company will say, no, we price it right. You can't tell me that a company that has a seventy billion dollar market CAP, which was open it you know price at one twenty and tripled almost in price and had to be halted its some point today for price volatility was priced right and the people watching saying, how is this not a game I? Get it it it upsets me as well but that's the way the business works in that to me is problematic mill. Why does it upset me? WHAT'S THE PROBLEM Tim i? Think they thought it was valued at something investors in the market. Thought it was something else I mean that's the way the markets work right? Again, though it's it's it's terrible price discovery because you have some sense and bankers WANNA price and the companies want a price that deal that leaves him upside for investors but but to be clear this is three times more at least the guide from last week and so the the question really is, how can they be so far off environment where we know people are paying almost anything for growth and actually wear and cloud services but but ultimately, I think the real question is who gets access to this. IPO and the thing that's troubling is that this is not a fair game. And the allocation process is one that makes sense that there are plenty of opportunities for people who did not deserve big allocations to get them and I realized this ultimately. The dynamic of a company. First of all will say I want a certain institutional investor base on my cap stack and those are the people. I want my deal. I. Don't want certain people. Read investors typically are not the group that companies want There's a perception that they're going to be in their flipping those stocks faster. The reality is that there's a lot of hedge funds. They'd probably flip this thing aggressively today. So again to me, my issue is with the allocation process and that it's not. It's it's not a fair process maybe it's not supposed to be asked the bankers that because I think that's what this comes down to to be fair. There are some companies that actually say in the allocation that they want a certain amount to go to retail trading firms like a td Ameritrade for those firms. So then Dole out to retail investors but gosh, I think to brings up a good point in terms of the average per se popping thirty six percent this year that really shows you what this market is these days the search for growth and what investors are willing to pay for that growth. Yeah, and also you got to you have to factor in we're in a different environment. So the offering price is different than the opening price, and all of that is based on interactions with institutions trying to figure out supply demand while everyone is filming from podcast or from an ipad in their home. So it's very different than last year. Very different. The whole IPO process having said that it really speaks to the reach for growth. So, if you have the price action that we saw today. Think about it. It's Tim said you want to have if you're coming out as a public company, you WanNa, put your stock in institutions hands where they're less likely to flip out of that stock on the day of the. IPO. And that's where the whole system. Might be flawed, but it's worked this way for a tremendous amount of time, and there's always going to be a problem with any system anywhere.
Chrome tackles Abusive Ads
"Chrome Fortunately will be getting tough on abusive ads. In a posting on get hub. Google's engineer John. Delaney has spelled out the chromium projects, intentions regarding abusive ads. So. First of all modern web pages are a jungle of stuff. So how does chromium the chromium engine determine? For itself what's an ad and what isn't It comes down to something known as add tagging. Chromium is able to detect some ads and the resources they load in the browser. This enables the browser to measure the size, the performance and the count of ads displayed. To its users, it also allows the browser to intervene on the user's behalf when ads run counter to what they decide is the users interest, for example, using crazy amount of resources engaging in some abusive behavior or whatever. So that add detection infrastructure, they call at tagging and it's not very inspired. It works by matching resource requests against a filter list to determine if they're ad requests and in there in a sample that they've got of some code, they show them you like importing the easy list, which of course, is a well known list that's being maintained by a community of a known domain names that are providing ads. So they said any requests. Matching the filter are tagged as adds further requests and some dom elements such as I frames made on behalf of previously tagged scripts are also tagged as ads by the AD tracker. So it's not just it's as images that match the filter. It's if scripts were coming from a a known add source than the things that are essentially descendents of those scripts would also be tagged as ads, which certainly you'd want to have happen. They said I pray will be marked as an ad I frame. If it's your L. matches the filter list if tagged. Is Involved in the creation of the I frame or if it's parent frame is an ad I frame. So you know you can't get can't sneak out of it by creating a frame within a frame and say look I'm not the original one. The mainframe on a page will never be tagged as an add good. and. Then they said any request made within an ad I frame is considered an ad resource request. So drilling down on this one level. We learned that this sub resource filter loads the filter list, and then perform this url matching of any requests against that list it's distributed. That is the filter list is distributed via the component update, which is just part of the chrome installation. So it's be main, it's being kept current constantly, and the same list and component is also used for blocking ads on abusive sites. And those that violate the better ads standard. they explained that each sub resource request in the render process is processed by the sub resource filter before the request is sent from the browser out. So it's not that it blocks things coming back. It never makes the request in the first place. It just you know denies denies it on the from the the page making the request. Okay so you get ads identified as such. How were they treated differently this is where John, explains what they they call the heavy add intervention. A small fraction of ads on the Web us and John Likes the word egregious will see there's a couple of times and egregious amount of system resources. He says these poorly performance ads whether intentional or not harm the user's browsing experience by making pages slow draining the device's battery and consuming mobile data. He says for those without unlimited plans and then he says, in these egregious cases, the browser can upload the offending adds. To, protect the individuals divide. I'm sorry that browser can unload saying wet the browser can unload the offending adds to protect the individuals device resources. He says, this is a strong intervention that's meant to safeguard the users resources with low risk because unloading and add is unlikely to result in loss of functionality of the pages main content. Is as examples of observed at behavior that are intended to be discouraged. Are Note no surprise adds that mine crypto currency. ADDS that load large poorly compressed into is So just sloppy ads ads that loge large video files before a user gesture. Or adds that perform expensive operations in Java script such as decoding video files or seat. CPU Timing Attacks Yeah we don't want those. So Google notes that is not their intention to discourage any specific ad creative formats such as display video ads. So they're trying to be as agnostic as possible. So the user agent, the Browser will unload ads that US and he says again and agreed amount of network bandwidth or CPU usage. We define reaches as using more of a resource than ninety nine point, nine percent of ads as measured by the browser. That's well, you know. So that sets a very high bar says he and he says only adds that have not been interacted with by the user will be unloaded. And here's what's interesting and this is some tech We've never talked about before that's therefore worth mentioning. All unloaded frames will be notified via an intervention report. That the intervention occurred. This feedback is necessary to help advertisers or their AD technology vendors to identify and fix ads that are triggering this intervention. So first of all, just a little bit a little last word on the classification of ads. He says that's left to the discretion of the user agent. For example, chrome detects ads using what we talked about the ad tagging feature. An advertisement is considered heavy if it has not been clicked on by the user and meets any of the following criteria. It uses the main thread for more than sixty seconds total. The or used the main thread for more than fifteen seconds in any thirty second window. So they they said and parental fifty percent utilization over thirty seconds. Or used more than four megabytes of network bandwidth to load resources. So any of those thresholds get crossed the that the new chrome technology will say, nope and just boot the ad it's you know, sorry, you're a bad. And he said that the thresholds above were inspired by the I. ABC's lean standard that's in caps but chosen to but has chosen by looking at crumbs metrics at the ninety nine point ninth percentile of network and CPU usage in ads so again. Most ads are not gonNa Cross that line but those that do, and there are some bye-bye.
Under Trump, US reputation hits rock-bottom: Pew global survey
"For the past three and a half years the united. States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries that's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center but a new study they paula shows that our reputation has taken even deeper nosedive just over the past year Jacob poster is at Pugh in Washington Jacob Pugh does a lot of surveys and this is not the first one about America's image what made this survey nick. Well, we've actually been doing surveys for twenty years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the US during that time period and in the current survey in two thousand and twenty, we're finding some the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability including in Japan, the UK Canada you know more than four in ten have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think US image plummets internationally as most say country's handled corona virus badly. So how did your survey respondents about the US and the corona virus like what was one of the questions? Where we ask people on whether various countries including their own were doing a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than twenty percent and any of the thirteen countries that we surveyed said, the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the krona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the. Countries we surveyed people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. The there are places where the US image is seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the US was responding well to the coronavirus in terms of response to the coronavirus no country was over twenty percent. But when it comes to the US favorability, there are countries were a majority still have a favorable view of. The US, but that number has shrunk dramatically in the last year. South. Korea's one country where fifty nine percent have a favorable view of the US. But even there that's down almost twenty points from two thousand nineteen when seventy seven percent favourable view of the US
Cyber Power Index highlighting Australian Governments gaps in cyber capability
"Like any INFO Technology Sector security has plenty of indexes flooding around or get. Indexes collided by vendors and people trying to sell things to us I thought this for Senate index was. Useful because it doesn't come from I accompany product. It say independent academic attempt to benchmark Com, sub security capability and intent from nation sites It appealed to make per couple of reasons may not have had A to do with Bill Center in the past spend a little bit of Thanh. Talking to their academics in previous roles and particularly locked the way that This report sets metrics that up designed to objectively major subsidy maturity in nations So it says what are the kind of things that we could judge the intent of a nation in the obscurity spice and one of the kind of things that we could use to objectively major capability. And it tells an interesting story in Australia Australia's categorized in the higher intent, low capability quadrant and the reason for that is because when the the objective metrics this reporter applied to the statements made by by government ministers by government departments, entities about what our intent is. Assab security spice. Where about the most ambitious nation in the world for ask security attend? But. Then when you look at what our actual capabilities against that intent on again measured in a series of objective metrics. We fold anti sixteenth in that space. So, FA May that told a pretty familiar story because this over promising on delivering stories. One that I think is familiar to a lot of. People in the Strand security sector. In the context of these trying government's actions since the twenty six, Day sub, security strategy. A lot of announcement to be my bet when you follow up way those announcements. In the years after that have been made you say less deleted then was announced to the media. Will what's on the industry? Kodak in the two thousand, sixteen strategy that was undefended at least out of the Prime Minister's office. This one is looking out at a ten years. The two thousand twenty strategy is looking at at the ten year timeframe. And proposing one point six, billion, dollar funding. Backdrop, but a lot of that is going into law enforcement and as you say might be into that capability. What's your take on the strategy itself? Overall as you say, it's it's another announcement is on the strategy whether it's not as another thing but certainly yet your thoughts on the strategy itself and where maybe else we could have been in twenty twenty from the twenty six danes strategies. Have you have you seen that the two thousand twenty strategy's building on the twenty, sixteen or? Taking a completely new direction. While the that, you can certainly say the why the two thousand twenty strategy is reaction to experience the twenty six strategy That the twenty sixteen subsequently strategy had a very large number of of objectives and Nisha announced under it. I think the government found the experience of trying to implement those very large number projected initiatives again, adopted under outcome Tambo's prime ministership around the breathing bruising exercise because the twenty twenty strategy dramatically rationalize is temptation I'm say that the broad spread of of initiatives and objectives under the strategy a kind of a toddler. Your decide that the Gospel confessed about ninety percent of the funding. Associated with these twenty twenty strategy he's allocated to security agencies So it goes into building. Capabilities with particularly the is day but also other security agencies on. Enforcement agencies like the the I pay, and that's well and good We have I think outstanding internationally recognized capabilities within is. and this is the conduct that you have to keep investing in order to. Maintain those capabilities in my time that that international ranking. Suppose big Criticism that that libraries had is one that we've been exploring for at the loss twelve months and that's really When you look at security policy to strike the problem is the ability to project those capabilities out of the silos of how defense and security agencies. To the problems in Australia Com in terms of lifting a bench, mock the baseline up security security. Brazil and Sada resilience across the Australian government trying economy You know there's a lot of examples of that. Wall is day is absolutely world standard. Saab resiliency combined entities is as at the government's own description reminding at relatively low levels. you know the is days top full became mandatory in the.

Very, different levels of resilience.
Senator Chris Murphy On The Violence Inside Us
"Thank you so much for joining us. You start out your book by talking about a fistfight that you got into in first grade and I think one of the most striking things you write about that you felt like you were just hardwired to fight. Can you tell me and my listeners that story and what you meant by that? You know this is the introduction by the way. Let's the thanks for having me on. Again this is a topic that both you and I are obviously deeply committed to in this book is really about my study of the issue gun over the last seventy. Years Changed in twenty twelve of the shooting in Connecticut and I think what I wanted to communicate at the beginning of this book is a recognition that there is violence that sits inside all of us that as a species, we are hardwired for violence and well, ninety nine point, nine percent of Americans had never taken a life very few of us have never had a moment in which we didn't at least contemplate putting our hands on someone else. That's because our species is actually more violent, much more violent historically then almost any other and so it's important for us to recognize that so. That we can make changes in the way that we associate with ourselves, the rules that govern us to try to tamp down that instinct, and that's what this book is really about it's about the long human has Rian violence and how we've been pretty effective in controlling it but then America's unique history of violence and how we've been very ineffective in this country at controlling it. It's interesting because you say that we're hardwired for violence and it makes me think of fight flight or freeze, which is our natural response to any kind of danger that response to sits at the bottom of our. Brain stem, which is like the most primitive part of our entire body. It has not evolved at all, and so that is there for survival mechanisms. Right is there for survival mechanisms, but our body has actually sent a message that it doesn't like to use that mechanism. So this stories in the book as well when you experience that fight or flight moment, right when you're presented with such a danger that you either run or you fight back, your body releases a hormone cortisol, and at the moment that hormone is really helpful because it helps you make quick decisions and it gives you a little. Bit more courage and strength. But in the long run cortisol breaks your brain, it breaks your brain and so if you have these fighter flight moments every day or every week, then you literally can't learn you can't relate to other human beings and so why we call the epidemic of violence in this nation of public health epidemic is because kids who live in violent neighborhoods fear for their life every time they walk to the Corner Bodega or their school in the morning, their brains are broken by this hormone that gets released over and over and over again, and so it's no coincidence that. The underperforming schools are all in the highly neighborhoods, kids whether their shot at or not. They simply are different or bodies respond differently because of this constant exposure trauma, and then you add just food vulnerability and how hard it is to find fresh produce and all of those things that helped to restore the brain, restore the body, and then it becomes a whole other issue nourishment makes it very difficult for a child to learn and for a brain to grow. I. Want to ask you how do you think violence in America is different than violence in the rest of the world the first part Of this book is really a story of the trajectory of American violence and what's interesting is that America is actually not a wildly violent place until about the middle of the eighteen hundreds and three things happen there that separate us from the rest of the world and we never returned back to Earth we became a more violent nation and we still are more validation and quickly the three things are in their interesting I. It's the expansion of the slave population in the south. After the invention of the cotton gin more slaves means more violence in the country kind of becomes anesthetize to violence. Numb to it because it's what is necessary in order to just keep our economy together second, you've got all these waves of immigrants coming to the United States in what history tells us is that the more groups in one space at one time the more risk there is for conflicts and violence but then lastly, it's the invention of handgun and the decision of the United States to not regulate that weapon it gets sold in every corner of the United States and all of a sudden common arguments on the street become deadly because you've got this little weapon that you can hide in your pocket.
