"The numbers and trends that they found are pretty staggering fifty four million women which is about five percent of the global female workforce had to give up. Their jobs are had lost their jobs because of the lockdowns. Globally we also realize that women before the crow virus hit were over represented in the informal economy so working outside of the formal labor market so emily and on you had these numbers and then with the team of journalists working around the world they set out to meet the people behind the numbers women who've either lost their jobs or quit during the pandemic one of those women is klaudia in lima peru. A antic anemia. Nicole mamoadate media people. Klaudia is the mother of three teenagers after years of hard work. She said that things were finally going well for her family. They had an apartment. Her husband owned his own. Taxi in cloudy was running a convenience store then. Everything changed that pandemic kit peru relatively early and it hit really hard almost overnight. Everything was shut down and both her business and her husband's business were hit hard. Multiple members of cloudiest family. Came down with co vid. They'd been working to build their businesses and now they were struggling just to survive. I've been medical. She started to sell her stock in her convenience store. They had to leave the home that they'd saved for and she was pushed like so many women in peru from that more formal economy to the informal economy in peru. There were twenty five percent of the women who had a job at the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty. Didn't have that job when the pandemic hit and they went into lockdown sometime in mid march and since then there has been some recovery. But it hasn't been at the same level as the pre pandemic level and even when these women have gone back into jobs. They are underemployed and they are doing something to make ends meet and are likely not in the same jobs that they used to have. Which likely paid them more hiccup not we anymore. She told us this is a skill that women have. We can do a bunch of different things at once. We can do anything we can sell anything and she describes her days as very much this hustle where she's helping her son do his online schooling through a very questionable phone line. She's selling stuff in her spare time on the street to make a little bit of money. She's doing elder care. she's doing childcare. And all of these women are trying to piece together enough to to even not even approximate what they had before and a sentiment. We heard a lot was we. Just we don't know how this ends. And that's very much the case for claudia. The last decade has seen the slow crawl towards more equal representation of women in the global workforce but the pandemic has derailed those gains.

"There's nearly double the number of job openings. As people who used to work in that sector. It's pretty close to that for healthcare and education. Right now that's k. Through twelve in childcare type education and then we also see a lot of retail and restaurant job openings. I done the same job or probably thirty years. One of the people that we profile is a woman named anne any farley from hutchinson kansas. And she's sixty three. I ran an embroidery machine. It was always yes. They'll hire you back. Yes you're going to come back. Yes you're gonna come back yesterday. Getting back lost her job in the pandemic in when she tried to get it back. A year later was basically told sorry. We hired a younger cheaper person than you. And now it's been a real struggle at age sixty three for her to try to find another job. She ended up actually taking early. Social security basically early retirement. But she's still hoping to find something. I had to look for a job a whole time. Because i i've been on unemployment and i mean never these beat down the door. Jr is sixty three year old. But i feel like people think. I'm a problem because i won't go get a job. I mean i. I would go get a job at there was a good win. Bet i mean it's like what's the big deal. Just go work at mcdonalds or whatever and i don't want to. I'm sixty three. And i don't wanna do that in. She's one of many older workers. I've heard from who just feel like they're really given the shaft in today's employment market and as we've been reporting and has been on the podcast a lot of people who used to work in restaurants in in retail. Don't wanna go back. They feel like it's a real slog of a job and they want different in on the location side. There's a lot of job openings in the economy right now in the suburbs. I was just in suburban maryland yesterday. Outside washington dc at a wegmans grocery store and you would not think the pandemic was still going on. The place was packed. And that's where there's a lot of hiring and so what you see. Is you know people who used to work in the city or used to be set up to commute to the city are now seen more job opportunities in the suburbs and there's just not as good of transportation like metro lines and buses to get to some of these suburban jobs that are now growing and expanding and of course anyone who's paid any attention to the real estate sector knows. Real estate in the suburbs has gone bananas so even if workers say hey. That's where the jobs. I wanna move to that suburban maryland neighborhood maybe to work at that wegmans. It's really difficult incredibly expensive to do that right now. I'm also curious. I mean you said that there has been some rethinking among people who are trying to get a job. We're thinking about getting a job in terms of what they want and what they think is the right job for them. Can you talk more about that. Like how this period has caused this great rethinking of employment. We've been calling it the great reassessment of work. I just hear it over and over again. And we've seen it in polling Recent washington post poll last month found nearly a third of workers under forty. Want to change careers that the red i mean. That's just a huge amount of people rethinking their lives and of course so many of us either are the people rethinking or no people who are rethinking. Maybe i just hear that word flexibility. I want more flexibility over and over again for some that means the flexibility to work from home at least a for some of the time for others. It means a more flexible job or they can spend more time with kids and family for others. It means more time for mental health or more time to do hobbies and activities that they want. And you can see that. There's a lot of strain to hire in jobs. Like retail and restaurants or even manufacturing has struggled quite a bit in recent minds and people are just throwing up their hands and sort of saying i. That's not what i want anymore. I'm interested in how that's played out demographically. If you're seeing certain groups who are more represented in this population at people who are like. I don't want to be miserable in these shops anymore. And i don't want to do them across the board. We're seeing a lot of desire to do something different. But i would say from the polling that the washington posted we did see a much higher percent of people who were under forty so Also workers of color and some workers who maybe tended to live in more urban areas. So you know. I was an interesting mix but again. This is something that i personally have heard in interviewing everybody from white collar executive level people to people who worked restaurant or retail jobs. I also think that this brings up an interesting question. That i think is an important question in an honest reaction that a lot of people have which is that if there is a need for people to fill jobs in huge numbers and people who don't have jobs right now than why do we continue unemployment assistance or why are we continuing addiction. Moratoriums for people who don't have jobs right now like isn't that a reason that we should look at the labor market and say okay. We don't need to be helping unemployment because there's plenty of jobs with that is what the federal government said this week. Seven million people lost unemployment benefits entirely and another three million saw their benefits essentially cut in half so the average they would have been getting would have been around six hundred a week and that is now down to an average of around three hundred a week and there were a number of states twenty two states that rolled back those benefits early over the summer. It's early days what we did see what those states that acted early over. The summer is a little bit surprising. We saw actually employment did not surge in those states that ended the benefits early. As you may have expected we did see some higher incidence of people reporting that they were struggling to eat pay bills again and the big one that i think people forget is we saw a little bit of a hit to those state economies. Because there wasn't as much spending again if you're taking away somebody's going from six hundred to three hundred dollars a week or obviously from six hundred zero. They are not going to spend as much on food on shelter. They're not gonna pay all their credit card bills. So i i would just say i think the most middle of the road way to say this is the ideal in the united states is we would not totally cut people off unemployment. You know we would have some sort of a better state program. These programs are state based at the moment. Where again if somebody got laid off in the middle of august you know. They should be cut off completely. They should be allowed to apply for unemployment. That's interesting what you said. Though about that. In places where unemployment benefits have expired or the state has gotten rid of them that we haven't actually seen that increase in people getting hired. What do you think is going on there. There's a lot of theories some conservatives argue that it just hasn't taken enough time and they may be rates people have been saving up some of that money it gives them a bit of a cushion and they don't feel maybe the urgency what. I would argue again. Is this theme this yolo or this great reassessment theme and what. I hear a lot on the ground from people is. I don't feel that. I have to take the first job available to me. You know. I have this dream of trying to get a better job or switch careers. And so i was just on the phone with the woman yesterday She and her husband moved to phoenix. They're trying to build up a better career after working about ten years. They're in their early thirties. And she said you know i have. I did get a job offer in august. But i didn't take it because it wasn't a lot of money. It a fifteen dollar an hour job. I wanna hold on. See if i can get something better in september october or november. Now this could be a very different conversation. A few months down the line if they can't pay their bills you know and they feel more urgency so our employers meeting those demands of people who say look. I don't want to be doing the same work. I've done for the last ten years and i want to beat a place where i have a career path or get paid more or feel like i'm not doing work that is grueling and unlivable employers have to change and many of them are changing if you look at almost any job. Add even for a retail or a restaurant. They are stressing that. This isn't a dead end job that this is a job where we promote people who start as a cashier as a line cook and they end up as the store manager aaa or walmart. You know a few years down the line. Every company is trying to do something like that. Paint this image that this isn't just a job. This is a pathway for you. You can see a lot of companies big companies coming out. Talk up that they've helped people retrain so they don't want them to be warehouse workers forever. They help them to try to get to their dream. So i think that's really interesting. Another thing. That was fascinating martinez. We just had a harvard. Business school study. come out. That pointed out that a lot of the companies particularly big companies use these screening tools these robots artificial intelligence to scan all the resumes again on a site like indeed or lincoln and they just get so many of these thousands in many cases. They can't read them all and the problem is these. Artificial intelligence is doing a very bad job. in many cases they are leaving out. Millions of people particularly anyone who has a job gap or doesn't have the perfect resume. That so i just keep encouraging employers. No there's no simple fix but that this woman in time we do have over. Three million americans who are unemployed have been unemployed for a pretty long time for six months or more and those people in many cases are ready to get back to work and don't overlook them well that's interesting in terms of long-term changes that maybe could stay with us for a long time that those historic things that people worry about having a gap on your resume or having a kid and taking time off and trying to get back in the job market that can be so hard that maybe this could be a solution for that that there is forced increase of openness toward the nontraditional job candidate. That would certainly be a huge plus if it happened. We have seen a lot of wage growth particularly in industries like retail and restaurants restaurants. Now pay on average fifteen an hour for the first time that happened just recently same thing with grocery stores on average now pay fifteen in the united states and a lot of places never used to offer benefits or now offering at least some basic healthcare benefits including mental health care. So i think that's a real positive. I'm starting to hear from companies some larger companies particularly in the retail space that are opening their own daycare centers as they realize that you know there are some more employees particularly women. We could potentially get to come work for us. I was just on the phone with somebody recently. And they said they were offered not only a higher pay than they were expecting hourly wage but when they the company came back and said we'll pay your mileage. Some people argue. The power has shifted into the hands of workers It'll be interesting. How long that lasts had their long is economics correspondent for the post after the break.

"You only live once that life is too short to do jobs that make you miserable. And it's interesting to see that. Play out now. exactly. I've been referring to it as yolo on steroids. Obviously people knew this basic mantra before but the pandemic the trauma of all of the has just reinforced it for a lot of people. And that's why not only are we seeing record numbers of job openings but this data showing us that nearly a record again in july it was only topped in april of people quitting their jobs. So even people who have employment are really rethinking. Is this the place. I wanna be from the newsroom of the washington. Post this poster reports. i'm martine powers. It's thursday september ninth. Today we're talking about how the pandemic has fundamentally changed so much about work and the economy around the world and here in the. Us one sign of that. Is this weird paradox. That there are so many unemployed americans right now and so many job openings. So theoretically those unemployed people should be filling those jobs. But they're not. There are basically eighty unemployed people for every one hundred jobs or one point two five job openings for every unemployed america. That's heather long economics correspondent for the post and she says that this mismatch is probably going to continue for a while even after millions of people lost unemployment benefits this past weekend.

"Moment of could within minutes apple will announce its earnings if they're terrible and apple stock tanks as s predicts that it will be a millionaire if on the other hand. Apple's results are good office doesn't seem to want to think about that instead. He wiles away the minutes sipping what appears to be a cocktail through a straw. And then he's got the chart a live one minute chart which is like what wall street. Let's would call like theatrical mode. I one minute chart tracks. The stock's price minute by minute. Souci every tiny movement you can see every single little tick so he had the one minute up and we're all waiting for the moment where apple earnings posts and when earnings posted apple crushed it a top and bottom line for apple propelled stock up by more than three percents. Seventy eight point. Four billion dollars in revenue in the last ninety days go write that down. that's stunning. Ooh and he immediately starts screaming and he says no no no no. Apple's earnings were spectacular. Komo's big bet was a failure. His uncle's fortune destroyed or was it. So let's review. A guy gets an inheritance from a mysterious uncle and then recklessly whittles it down to nothing until he blows it all live on camera while wearing a wolf mask if that's a little bit suspect to you because it is. There's a twist to the story. Did he ever kind of admit to you or others that a whole thing had been fake. Oh yeah yeah totally. According to everyone we spoke to f eskimo was a giant troll a provocateur. A bs her lying about it. Use paper trading for people who've never heard the term like paper trading yes so paper trading is like trading fake money so a lot of brokers will offer like a paper trading so you can learn how the trade you know like a demo account or something. Yeah just like a demo account exactly a practice account so yeah you know. One of these accounts with interactive brokers and. He was life paper account. There've been rumors going around on wall street bets for years that f s might be paper trading but the final toll was apparently a tiny detail on his brokerage account which he'd been streaming live during the final yolo. It was a tiny de before his username. D for demo account this revelation that might have faked the final yellow maybe faked most of his trades. Didn't faze alex. Alex hardy new a while back. He says he started messaging. F s and the two of them had struck up a conversation on read it. Alex says even met f s once in canada. What was he like. he's an older guy. Canadian cod. I got a little bit of a slurry voice. You know really smart guy though. A very intelligent guy and one of their conversations f s turned alexan- to a blog that he'd been keeping it was private. You pay access. The page is gone now. Alex showed me some screen shots from it. Alex says this is where fest posted his quote. Unquote real trades trades. That were the exact opposite of the trades that he'd been posting to read. It was openly doing the opposite in as little private thing. Why why do both like why. Go through the trouble of trolling everybody. Why not just make good. You know this is a good question. I i mean 'cause like in the very very beginning like twenty fifteen you know. He was posting real trades. That were good. And i think he was wrong a couple of times and then he took on this identity. I think he wanted to be that. He wanted to be that anti hero. 'cause like i said he was getting a ton of praise a ton of attention that he could be more popular doing fake trades that were bad than doing real trades. That were good right you know. And here's the big mystery. Why is that wall street mentality. i couldn't tell you why that's just. That's what happened the backlash on wall street. Pets was fierce. Sure some people. Like alex knew about. Fs's paper trading but for others it came as a shock and a bit of a betrayal immediately after the final yellow fusco defended himself. He admitted he'd been streaming a demo account but he said it was only to avoid livestreaming his real account details later though he did admit it was a troll. He's self published a book haven't been able to find a copy if you have one. Please contact me. But i did find the title. It is wolf. E has fallen subtitle. How trolled the entire internet subtitle. Confessions of a master troll. Here's jamie again. The wall street bets founder. What wall street beds has always been. Truly the one thing that was always frowned upon was lying about your trades. You wanna lie about your job. Go for lie to your wife about what you're doing on the stock market had for. Don't lie to me about your traits because that's the only thing it really keeps us together. A few people told me that because of the sub reddit got stricter about proof. You can just say that you'd made a play. You had to post proof of trade provea trades need to somehow prove that you really in a trade whether that's video or screenshots because if you're lying in some fun it's just made up money. People want real trades. They wanna see guys. Losing millions of dollars are making millions of dollars but f s had another legacy to one that. I think you can trace right up to the game. Stop moment he threw open the door for future yours to follow. Fsn will video was a breakout moment for the sub. It attracted mainstream. Press and new users like dennis cow. That was hilarious video. When i saw this guy could lose or like doubles life savings overnight. This is why i discovered auction. Like this is my mother. And i was like okay. So you can options stocks and it's just as false op. Dennis was twenty four when he saw fx komo who's the fortune in a matter of minutes and that kind of volatility. The idea that you could be a wildly one. Minute and down wildly. The next reminded dennis of something he knew about trading cryptocurrency in twenty. Seventeen went trip was going up a lot like i actually. It was brief period. I was millionaire for about a month. And i actually job because i thought it was just gonna go up forever like immediately everything freshly eighty percent. Dennis is crypto. Fortune was gone but it wasn't ready to go crawling back to his job. That's when he saw fs's apple yellow and dennis was inspired. He started making the same kinds of trades. That fsn made these big risky options. Plays ahead of big tech company earnings and just like f s he posted about it on wall street bets and it worked for a word for a while like four months and then yup i bet like one hundred eighty thousand dollars on a facebook going into its you to. He eighteen earnings at law and it cracked like eighteen percent today after so lost all that and i was very quickly back in.

What do you mean like all the active traders is eventually gonna get for passive. I think people are overlooking the fact that activists going to take over again and has his debt vanguard took in one hundred and twenty one billion dollars in q one which was two billion dollars a day. that's the pace puts them on track to beat their record. Set in two thousand seventeen. He just cheap betas still the king. We keep talking about game stop and doj coin and all these little things that people are putting small amounts of money into vanguard i shares still rule the world as far as he goes. I don't think that's going to change. That's my point. The great all right. I think it's time for gmo to create a new model so they put out there march thirty first two thousand twenty one projections for stocks. Us large-caps over the next seven years negative seven point three percent real you a small capped negative eight point one percent real. The only positive return they show is emerging value. Why don't they just take their computers and throw them out a window of this models at. they're producing. What is the point of this because their clients are expecting them to iran the number. There's a difference between being consistent and hitting your head against the wall though because but then imagine they said That's broken were wrong. I mean every single one of the would leave. They think their clients would appreciate the flexibility of being intellectually honest. Okay it's too late. Their pass flexibility. It's been a decade or more. It's just a useless model if that's what it's producing okay. I look back the rolling seven year annual real return for the five hundred going back to the nineteen twenties the worst seven-year real return ever let me guess. Negative three negative eight ending in nineteen seventy four bottom. But that's because Inflation so bad. He's a real returns. Using inflation adjusted returns the so fifteen percent of all rolling seven year real returns of a negative. So they're predicting basically the worst seventy return in history from here. Here's the thing to get negative seven we all for seven years. I mean inflation has to go bananas. That would be so bad for everybody. I guess my point is think about bad. Things have to be for negative seven percent. Real inflation recession job loss. Just misery this. If they're right were about. I mean things would be so so so bad. Anything can happen. But they're not right and the thing is i'm all about like setting expectations and marcus. In the fact that markets have been going crazy. And it's been a good idea to say lower expectations in recent years. Even though lowering those expectations has not been right. I feel like i wrote that blog. Post twenty fifteen to lower your expectations in. It sounded intelligent. But there's a difference between your expectations in predicting the end of the world every single year. It just like. I think expectations about baselines. And saying there's a range of results here but our baseline is still like okay. Lower than average returns. Not the world is coming to an end and armageddon is here well. at least they're also expecting negative two real returns for bonds so good lord. Everything here is negative on a real basis. Enough bad news. How about some good news. Gallup's economic confidence index. Ben one positive in april for the first time since march okay. Negative thirty thirty-three was the low. Got some room to run here. Looks like though blue skies my friend. Okay all right back to the negative stuff and then we're going to get to the positive. I think listen. You're wearing pink shirt. There's room for negativity here your shirt scream sunshine and optimism. You love commenting on my clothing. Only one it's pink. I never talk about mentioned your printed t shirt your logo t shirts that you wear. It's a great right. that's fine. No i'll take it. That's fine. I mean all right this is this is like some congressional research report. They look at the us income distribution trends. We talk listen before but this is just showing the percentage of children with income greater than their parents at age. Thirty so by the time you're thirty. They showed children's born in nineteen forty nine hundred fifty all the way through nineteen eighty-four bottom i think in nineteen forty ninety. Two percent had greater incomes in their children at age. Thirty nine hundred fiftieth. Seventy nine by nineteen seventy was sixty one by nineteen eighty nine hundred eighty four. So that's basically you and me it's fifty fifty now. I think there's a good explanation for this. So death longevity. That's part of it. Someone born in nineteen forty. Their parents lived through world. War one the great depression and then right when they were born world war two. I mean it kind of makes sense that in those instances in nineteen forties fifties and sixties. A thirty year old was making more than their parents who were probably one of them was off to war. Okay so again. Ninety two percent of people born in nineteen forty made more than the parents think about somebody born in nineteen forty. It's possible that their parents lived through the panic of nineteen o seven world war. One spanish flu spanish flow. Yeah great depression and world war two. Yes take that with a grain of salt but now this is from the f. T. and they wrote a piece that was all about basically montiel's are not happy and they're all insecure and they show this chart that we talked about before about boomer have so much more in the nineteen. Nineties boomers running the thirties. They had twenty one percent of household wealth. Mornings are three percent of shotgun. Yeah it's similar now boomers. Fifty seven montiel's not much higher when they go through these examples of people say that they're like paddling hard just to stand still and it's exhausting millennial and everything is so much. More expensive in millennials credit everything for our generation has been expensive. We had higher price college. We came out and then it was harder to find a job for many people because of the great recession can't buy stocks on the cheap anymore. Stocks are expensive housing run. So i think that that's the whole point of this interview. People from all around the world is in the uk. Said i have what other generations would be considered a well paying job at can barely afford a two bedroom flat within commuting distance to raise a family. So i certainly feel for millennials. You're like in some ways. Gotten a bad rap. Here's the other side of this. Here's like potentially. I think a good potential sign so kevin roose. The new york times wrote a piece called welcome to the yellow economy. He's talking about. How now a lotta young people are like out. Because of the pandemic and their jobs and now they finally have some savings. They've gotten some money or they haven't been doing stuff and people are abandoning their jobs and abandoning cities and moving elsewhere in trying to follow their dreams a little bit. Maybe that is starting a business may be that is moving somewhere else where it's not so expensive. I think this is a lot of the people said the same things about how the pandemic has completely changed their viewpoint on life. And i think this is potentially net positive where people use the pandemic as a springboard for something whether it's looking for a new even if it's a new remote job or starting a new business. I think this could be looked back. Ed turning point for the generation. What are your thoughts i agree. Have you heard friends or family members or people..

I think it hit sixty sixty four thousand down to forty eight ish. Forty-seven pretty little wash out there. This blew my mind finances. I think the biggest crypto exchange in the world and they offer according to the wall street journal hajer twenty five to one leverage for some futures contracts and. Meaning that for eighty cents. You can get exposure of one hundred dollars worth of bitcoin again. I have no idea what the average leverage but leverage on. Bitcoin i mean what are we doing here. They had a story about how there was a guy in kuwait who woke up at like five. Am local time and he looked at finance was liquidating his traits. So a lot of this was when the prices went down. A lot of these over leveraged people got knocked out immediately to the tune of ten billion dollars worth of liquidations. I guess i didn't realize i would assume you wouldn't need as much leverage in this space. I'm a new on that. I guess. I just assumed that. This was a volatile of asset as it is it moves up and down on its own is very much that you wouldn't really need to leverage it up but obviously decided let's do this and take it to the moon or whatever and really go for it. It's funny because if you're using leverage on bickering you can't sleep no right especially when it trades and that was a the crash happen like midnight eastern on a saturday night while so maybe being a night owl is actually a source of alpha for you because you bought the depth. Did not i did a little. Yeah at the time. Which i don't know if that's good or bad about twenty four seven trading but i think this year is a good example of sometimes stuff going up too fast is a huge risk. So this was the arcadio sky right like the whole problem was things went up way too fast and it got away from him. That's kind of thing that happens. With leverage stuff it goes up too fast and then especially when it falls really fast and the kids k. Goes it almost seems like his leverage was causing. Something's barring to rise. Maybe you could say if there's a bunch of leverage in the crypto system. I don't know there is. I don't know what the percentages are how that shakes out but that could be causing some of the rising to obviously. It works both ways. So the news in crypto land. Week was at j.p. morgan. I mean there's so much news but one of the piece of news at j.p. Morgan is preparing to offer an actively managed bitcoin to private wealth. Eclipses some health. A turnaround from jp morgan diamond has been not a fan of the crypto space but it seems inevitable. People are asking. We're hearing from clients on this. There's no way that these people that the clients at these private wealth management firms aren't hearing about this. How much money's being made saying. I won in right now. What are you doing for me. The risk of sounding uber bullish on bitcoin. It just seems pretty easy right now. That supply is obviously fairly finite. They mind what they mind. They can't flood the mark with bitcoin. Well they can't fill the market with bitcoin. They can flooded with a million other coins which is fine but to demand is not there for shit coins not yet by the way there's something called Comey's and scam coin. That's what stage were out of the market that there's fraud everywhere but my point is and bitcoin. I'm talking about bitcoin. Supply is what it is demands. Not drying up i mean. I don't know we overthinking seems. Pretty easy i'm not saying that can drop obviously haastrup. Actually this is third. Twenty percent drop in twenty twenty one. This is just what it is but in its potentially big money coming in. Although i mean it's going to be what one to five percent of a portfolio. I'm guessing if i mean i'm guessing these private bank places will do two percent position something like that but still they. Hundreds of thousands of accounts that adds the real money. Eventually the places that are these size fintech frank twitter this we are talking about how the rich big people fintech frank. Great name great man. That's that's perfect. Fourteen thousand theorem addresses with one million dollars. Man fourteen thousand and so they don't care if they lay their money on fire with nfc's and such right. Why wouldn't you go long. Comey's what's the difference. here's a good survey of the week. This is from bloomberg sixty percent of crypto investors say their beliefs or investments in the space have had a negative impact on a personal relationships. According to survey monkey survey what's more there's a direct correlation to the percentage of someone's net worth that's invested in crypto currencies and the likelihood. They say their personal relationships have been negatively impacted. This just makes perfect sense to me. I honestly can't imagine what it would be like to have seventy five million dollars in bitcoin or even close to that a million dollars and bitcoin. I feel like. I already have it on my screen way too often. I would become so hyper focused and obsessed that. I could see this interfering with relationships. I it doesn't surprise me. I don't think this isn't a diamond. On crypto people this is human nature and it went higher than the more. You have your worth in it. But i mean the thing that this survey misses that all of these early adopters of crypto obviously girlfriends in canada. I mean that's the only explanation. It's long distance. That's the problem. Not that then all right so this is my getting back to active is going to be good for passive eventually. This is eric del. Tournus good friend of the show. We activists.
"yolo" Discussed on Embedded
"You don't put that change into the main the master branch until people have had a chance to review it but because we want the code in their vision control system. So that if you you know. They've the the building catches on fire. If you decide to quit we still have your your code next day. And because the code needs to be in the revision control system in order for others to review it easily. So what we tell the interns. We say all right intern. You create a new branch using yellow branch name and so you so so the the The internist created their own branch. And they name it in. Turn dash Bug fixed wanted four because they fixed a bug. That was bug one. Two three four in the inner bug database. And it's got the name at the front of it so that everyone knows this is this belongs to them. So then there is now a master branch in our repository and there is a there is a a another branch which is has all the same history as the master branch for now at the point when the internet has created his intern dash bug fixed. One two three four branch then. The intern commits their bug. Fix onto this branch. The intern bug fix before branch. So the code is in the repository on their machine but is not on the main branches on the master branches only on their intern branch. Have i gone too far enough artists for i think okay i. I'm good with this. The internet has changed of on their branch. Okay now so there. Because yellow is distributed version control system that branch only exists currently on the interns machine does not live on the central server that this that our company x. has so then. The intern does yolo shove. Was that the word. You're getting their yellow shove their branch to the main rebel to the central server and so now the central server which we as a company agreed is the main revision control system server now has the master branch and the interns branch so then. The intern walks over to offer engineering. Says all right. I've made the change. Can you please look the change. Before effect anyone other than my branch with it then. Suffer engineers has okay in order to get your chains. I have to be safe snarf. I remember the term be fetch Who else pull the fetch. Poll should be just poll just to do yolo poll the Yellow poll and then that means the software engineers yolo software looks on the main repository and says is there anything new here that does not exist on these software engineers machine. Oh yes there's a new branch got created and then it posed the branch down onto the software engineers machine software engineer then sees this branch has a change on it where the bug fix happened Change and files and the software engineer can build the code can run the code can look at the disks of the code can talk about it and come and stop there. Okay that after your has we. We've okayed the coat. The interns code. That is on intern. Branch by one. Two three four is is ready to go. We wanted to go back into the main branch. And like i said i find branching very easy and intuitive. It's merging pana. Why because if anything's happened in between you can get conflicts. And because how do. I know. I never really feel like i'm doing mergers right and this is from somebody. I do a lot of nurses. I am kind of making. It sound like i'm completely. I think we should get too deep into this. This couple of ways of dealing with this stuff get for. Example is very branch dependent. If you read the how you're supposed to use get her always supposed to be developing in a branch and you merge it back. Everybody's got a branch for their current work branches all over the place because very quick to make branches and get conceptually. That's that's how they designed to work Unfortunately they provide many ways of kind of solving the problem. You have about how to emerge back in and the chief problem is the thing you said. We're or something the main thing that you're merging into the main trunk has drifted past you because because in our example. The intern has made some changes. The software engineers made some changes. We have made some changes in and trying to put it back. But you're trying to put back and you're actually out of date in some way. Yes you've got nujaine old stuff too. Yeah so get provides you a bunch of ways to do this. You can merge the main trunk into your branch and that will bring you up to date you contests locally in your branch. You still haven't done anything bad to the main back to the main branch and then once you've done that you can merge back in now the time gap there where somebody might have moved past you a little bit. Sometimes it matters. Sometimes it doesn't there's another thing you can do and get called rebasing which is where it says. Oh well take the master trunk and take my changes only my changes and put them on top as if i had committed them at the top And that's nice. Because you get up to date in your revision. History looks nice. That's another way to force. There's a of ways to do it with these things. And that's where people get tripped up and each shop tends to have their own preferred way of doing things as complain about c. Plus plus how. They're ninety seven ways to do everything and so everything feels very artisanal get is sometimes that way that you use it the way your team agrees to use it and teams can agree for with drastically different use models and so you. It's easy to feel like you don't know what you're doing if you don't know what your team. This team's methodology is there isn't a standardized agreed upon methodology for everyone in the books. Tell you different things. I mean if you get five different get books arguing. There's even named there's even deemed jesus git flow. Which does this do your branches. This way so i don't think we should get too far into the that's fair. I mean really kind of getting down into get. And i think that's one of those things where you should get a book you really. You should get a book. This is important for your career. I think the meta point we can make here is that you got to choose a way of dealing with branches. And so if you don't have if you don't have any reason to choose any of them around and get flow or any of the more popular ones are well documented. You can find reasonable examples. Reasonable explanations on the web and so just.
interview With Geoffrey Tate Of Flex Logics
"So jeffer-. I wanna start off with certain difference between doing business with the data center versus doing business at the edge. I know that the hardware you folks are working on. Is you know what i think. Most people think hardware. They think about the big rack sitting somewhere in the data center the edges different the edges. New it's its burgeoning. How do you define the edge when you talk to people. Because i think people always think about those racks but it's clearly a blooming ecosystem. Yeah well azusa terms of different people defined differently but where we basically look at businesses any system. Outside of the data center there can be things like cellphones stations in verizon stations that are kind of in between what we're looking at your robots this. He'll cars field ultrasound systems in the field. So these are systems that are separated in well removed from today's yet. Okay and and obviously pretty wide. Berth as to what that could be almost any industry this this could be applied retail. You've got cameras energy you've got i don't know some some big turbine out there. You know generating some power killing in occasional bird. You know it's pretty pretty vast swath of of what what can imply does that. Broad world of edge cluster. In any interesting ways. I think industry would be one that makes sense. Maybe you can talk a bit about that but we also use case what you see edge sort of us for a certain way tammy how do you think about this whole new space. Those of us at home. it's it's sort of. It's new it's novel but how we want to break it up. Well we're just touching the top of the iceberg so we've engaged with a lot of customers see a lot martin's segments and they have different potential sizes so one obvious one is countered. There's cameras all over the place. You mentioned walmart's wells fargo's there's cameras today wired into servers in the back offices of these places and serve servers not in the data center and right now those cameras us recording video in case somebody shoplift something that got her the tape. Now they can add inference start tracking their stores checking buying behavior along the lines along the take to get through the lines things like that. So that's an application where you need object detection and recognition similarly when you're talking about robots robots moving around into distribution for a warehouse. They need to know you know what. Say iraq to put things on. What's the what's the person to make sure you don't get them. Yeah so you're detecting. You're recognizing them taking action appropriately. Same thing happens with cars so those are all object detection recognition models like yolo the three which do an excellent job of doing that. Which are people are flying now and we see medical imaging and there's many types of limiting there's crazy. Mri machines are much less expensive or numerous ultrasound. Machines x-ray cd stamps and stuff in between so there with the people are using models for his more specialized object detection recognition typically. You're standing your knee. It's stuck in there. It's not moving but you're looking to detect some anomalies in the x ray on the ultrasound. South is the baby. Ok is the got busted acl. So it's helping. The radiologist do occur. Job of diagnosing powell. That's what those kinds of models need to be doing. Things like Scientists gamma joining or life sciences. And they are in many cases what they're doing is looking to clean up images using network approaches through extraneous information clarify the. Which if you've ever seen like an ultra sounds like i just recently hasn't surgery. The doctors were trying to find a vein of the my shoulder. I can see the ultrasound. They were looking at a teaching hospital. And i couldn't tell what they said when they when they started a doctor they couldn't tell was on either but eventually they figured it out so these ultrasounds are hard to make out in. Computers can make better judgments which results in better outcomes says. A wide range of applications are seeing for inference models. I think we're just scratching. The surface gets more powerful and cheaper is going to go into more more more systems.

"This time like i know. He's crisis the crest of courage already. We established in the first season. The courage isn't like the absence of fear has a frontal. Yeah he has. The crest of yolo like is just jumping to his death. Like that's not brave and if they actually do something with this and he just didn't know that you could die the entire time. I think i'd prefer that but at the moment is just like oh. He's just jumping to his death to the fifth time today. I don't know i think you can do. He didn't know you did that last time. Do something slightly different please. Yeah you all. The good stuff is barred from the original anyway in of so. I'm not a big fan of this series. Is that the digital just able to evolve like off the episode even though they should be tied it just they don't even address it like really rich broken having them faith in universe for two solid hours. Yeah and they've been up to perfect end in the original when they reverted back from perfect they were babies and they were usually babies just feel like at least like a little bit of time like no time has passed basically from the lost episode in which they were all perfect levels and they're able to evolve suddenly like the only time they mentioned the human being too exhausted. Was that one time in that bad episode about the fooling mama or something and then they evolve anyway because yamato in touch he decided to share the cost of yellow. I don't know it feels like it was pointed out me by by our listener on stick. They said That they reminded me rather that The time dilation thing has just stopped happening. Yep yep only being referenced anymore. It's the old so the writers it just hoping referenced anymore. Or they just they just stopped wanting to try writing and into. I don't yet like. It wasn't convenient so it's stopped happening even though like the it was variable to some extent but they re like you're stretching variable..
Turning Your Passion Into Sustainable Work with Zachariah Moreno
"Hello welcome to go bam good morning. We're actually doing this during coffee. Time my favorite time of day. Thank you for having me. Thank you for coming on so zach. Tell us who you are. What's your heritage where you come from. I'm a mexican. American here in california oakland more specifically from the central valley of california grew up can actually west sacramento. You know went to school. They're pretty normal. Giant mexican family in california and Always had a love for creativity and art and different forms of expressing the that creativity so throughout my journey. That has come to life in a couple of different. Mediums started in kind of ink on paper transition to acrylic on canvas. art shows. Some awards wanted to do that professionally struggled to find a way to actually passion into sustainable work. Glad i saw that problem as early as i did. But then you know it always had an affinity for technology because of my my father's background been privileged to To be exposed to some technology pretty pretty early on and then i realized i could combine those two things together and make artwork and creativity with technology with squad. Cast is kind of the most recent body of that and that's actually another level of helping others be creative and connect and be creative with each other with their guests to record podcast interviews. That sound awesome from anywhere in the world. They do okay. So we're gonna pack all that story because this is what we do. So you're mexican american. Are you first generation. Second third generation. Right hey do how is that. I'm i yeah. I've actually thought about you know. My grandparents were barely born in the united states. A believe their family crossed the border into texas when they were like. I think my grandpa was actually. My grandmother was actually pregnant with him. when she came to america and i believe my grandma was a little girl when they crossed over into texas so work their way over to california and my grandpa was very fortunate to have an uncle who owned some farmland essentially in in the central valley here in in yolo county. They were farmworkers. The added bonus that he had is that his uncle rufus. I've never really gotten this full story. But he was able to own his own farm so he of course worked with farmworkers. They were out there in the field with them every day. My grandma grandpa learned to drive was he was super young was driving people back and forth from the fields and he's got gnarly scars all over his legs from like being out in in the different agricultural environments and walking around out there all day you know really exposed to that lifestyle and then became a sheriff's officer and later most of his career. He was a one of the best saw filers on the west coast. That's not a job really anymore. What is it at the time. These giant lumber companies would need these giant saw blades to take the raw number that they would bring in kind of millet down into usable lumber. So my grandpa started out in the yard stacking green lumber which is full of water. So it's incredibly woods heavy anyway but when it's fresh like that it's incredibly heavy so i'm sure he was pretty ripped back then he still is. He's in his nineties now. He's my favorite person and worked his way up to I guess it's kind of an apprentice situation where studied under somebody. He can take a piece of metal and make a giant saab laid out of it and Make that saw blade last for a very long time. And i guess there's very few people who can do that. He was very skilled skilled craftsman still to this day. Does a lot of woodworking and he's ninety nine only has he taught you how to make a late. He's taught me like on paper and shown me. He has a workshop that i helped build and we built in his backyard woodworking shop. And so does my dad. So this is what i mean about like creativity and craftsmanship. I think it goes very deep like my grandpa's. He's not a like a graphic artist. He's a very skilled technical drawing kind of pre autocad so he was What i would say is the first generation and my grandma you know to. That's how they match. She was one of the farm workers on his uncle's farm.
Los Angeles - Weather Helps Firefighters Gain More Ground In California
"Right now. Cal Fire reporting that a fire. Another fire started this morning called the glass fire in Napa County. It's already at 800 acres. But the milder weather has allowed firefighters to make progress on a number of fires. You realize since the beginning of the year, there have been 8100 wildfires that have burned well over 3.7 million acres here in California that's larger than the state of Connecticut. There have been 26 fatalities and over 7000 structures destroyed that they have made good progress on controlling the Ln you lightning complex fire. In Napa Lake Cinema, Collusive Solano and YOLO counties. The EU Lightning complex fire. All of these started in August 2 and that Stu Fire in Contra Costa, Alameda, San Joaquin Stanislaw counties. And the beauty Hema glen fire. All of those three fires are about 96 97% contained contain doesn't mean they're out and with heavier winds expected they could Flare up again. And then, of course, there's the the big fire. The August complex fire, which has burned over 873,000 acres of that it's only 43% contained. All right. We'll keep you advised of all that, and we'll talk gardening.
How about a language vacation
"Tour Guide Kerry Walker is an American language, but she's worked on her language goes in Central America and was immersing herself in Italian lessons when we last checked in with her Kerry, where have you gone in Italy to study the language I? So I started off in a school at Monte Pacino School in town so I Did that for about a week, which was a great start but then left I really needed more so I quickly learned that private lessons for me were the way to go really get the most being my book I said my last two studies have been in home stays with my teacher. So private is better than group for you for me, but is it more expensive because it's one on one? It is more expensive. But my goal is to really learn the language and order to do that. I realized that I really need that one on one, which is focused exactly on where I am where my misconceptions are the things that I want fine tune, and also that the places that I want to go may teacher can take me there much more quickly they can tailor the teaching to your exact interests you know all over the. World there's a lot of people earning their living despite teaching. English. As a second language is it can flip flop it. Are there a lot of people in Italy that earned their living or supplement their income by teaching foreigners Italian without question it's a big business. How you learn about that you know there's a lot of different ways. There's not one place to go to I. Really do it a lot of different ways I. Just asking people, where did you study? So I, got my last home state through my Italian tutor back home had another student that I spoke to I. So I think really getting those references from other people. Also some research, there's a lot of people now that have contacts with teachers all over Italy, and then you move in and you just how many hours a day or a week where he works. So I did I did about four to six hours a day, but I ate breakfast lunch and dinner with that family our table with ALFRESCO. Semi my classroom was Tuscany alfresco outside as living it. I was I was all those things that I needed to learn. My teacher was right there. So so it's it's a lot of work I I've never bothered I I have. A great time in Italy why would you spend all the time and money learning the language I'd love connecting with the culture I mean I think just to be able to move in and really not only did I. Learn the language I learned the culture I said at that table every day and for me that makes travel so much more real. So that is it. If the bottom line, the bottom line is not speaking the language, but it's connecting with the culture and with the language it's like you've got better vision. Exactly. You've done this also in Costa Rica and. Those are two different. Spanish. Speaking Countries. How does your choice of a destination? Impact, the learning that you have and what you come away with because Costa Rica and Nicaragua you went to both of them and you were trying to learn Spanish Why would you go to one rather than the other for me? It was based on what I wanted to see as well. I had some travel goals to for people. I. Think it's often going to depend on what part of the world you WANNA. See a said oftentimes that's the case also, you have to think about what kind of language you WanNa come away with if you went. Back to learn French and then you go to France, they're gonNA look at you like where are you from? Exactly so that's one of the reasons I chose not to study in Sicily obviously Naples I want to for me 'cause you don't WanNa, go around the world speaking. In, Tuscany, the kind of Italian. That I want to come away with what they're speaking there.

"yolo" Discussed on Christian Podcast Community
"Every time you pass by cemetery you're passing by tombstones that hold countless stories of lives lived before the grave however how many of those that died considered their own lives before the grave and more importantly the return destiny after the grave. How many today think beyond the grave it would seem that the fear of death is definitely looming over the heads of many at this time with the widespread pandemic of the corona virus. The whole world has been awakened at some level to the mortality and finality of man. You only live once Yolo. Yes but after this comes the judgment. Why should we be concerned about this?

"How To Cope During A Crisis" with Therapist Sharon Ellenbogen
"It's likely that our listeners have spent a thousand hours reading and listening and watching news focused on the escalating numbers and cases of deaths in different cities. And we'd like to focus on the other side of that crisis that we haven't really addressed enough for our listeners. And that's the psychological aspects and how to deal with it there's so many aspects of this situation that causes stress and grief for even the most resilient us should. We discuss this crisis in terms of the five stages of grief. Yes I think that really is appropriate because everybody has their own responses to this prices so the stages of Grief Art denial bargaining anger sadness and acceptance. And they're not linear. There are some people that are in denial. There are some people that are bargaining with this disease. Some people are really angry and some people are really sad and some people surprisingly are accepting this and they're hunkering down and they're saying life is so simple now. I don't have to think about where to go and where to be and they're getting very Connected Online and they're doing things that they've never experienced online but we're social beings and we need to stay connected. The kids on the beach in in Miami. We would you say that. That's the denial part of things. Or do we all personally go through. Denial Stage I think that we all personally go through denial stage and these kids. They want their spring break. They've worked really hard. This is really upsetting that. They have the mobility That they want and the Salvatori experience that they want so I think at that point they just said. Hey Yolo your only Lewan like we had the same thing in Malibu last weekend. Bill with the terrible traffic that was on our highways and on our beaches it was certainly all of southern California. Decided they were on spring break? And we're coming to the beach but they were not standing sixty depart not even three three feet apart so I I do feel like. There is a certain amount of denial. That happens after denial. Do you go into anger. Or bargaining bargaining. Is the decision making that you do with yourself? That makes it okay. So if I go to the store and I'm six feet away from somebody and I'm getting three roles of Those big bulk toilet papers then. I don't have to go out for the next month. And so you're bargaining with how. How much anxiety. You have with actually going out and having hoarding behavior. Let's say where you're bargaining with. Oh I only need this much and I'll leave the rest or somebody else. Is there a timeline for this? There's not a time there's an. It's not linear either. He's you can go in and out of denial in and out of Depression in and out of anger. Can you be ages at the same time? Yes because we're not. Linear beings were were very much chaotic people. We can feel more than one feeling at a time right. Exactly yeah. The insecure feeling the uneasiness. The confusion the little bit of anger and being in the dark. Tell us about how we should be thinking about these issues well. Anger is a very in a response to anxiety and stress. Most people get angry when they feel out of control. What I think people usually is that the only thing that you have control over is your own behavior in your spawns. When you don't know what's going to happen. I call that anticipatory anxiety and the not knowing can really disrupt regulate your system into a fight or flight or freeze response But most people know it as fighter flight. The practices is to come back to the presence and censor yourself so what I mean by. That is in the present moment. What are you doing to take care of yourself? And when you're agitated or or dysregulation You're not in a state of rational Sankaran. Need some other person. Or maybe that internal voice that I found to be able to reassure an Souso. We're pack animals. We don't really survive alone very well and so sometimes it's going to a friend. Sometimes it's going to a family member Eh. It's not about telling somebody what they should do but meeting somebody where they are and comforting them in that
How A Profane Subreddit Moved The Market
"Really feels like from a market perspective. This is the closest we've been lately to Sort of two thousand eight financial crisis vibes well since the financial crisis. When is a I would say so and I would certainly say the the statistics back you up biggest weekly sell off since the Financial Crisis. We've just seen right right. Massive a sell off in risk assets an extraordinary amount of repricing of expectations for Central Banks. All around the world to come in and intervene and we've had other periods of sort of semi crisis since the great financial crisis during periods of say the euro-zone but it's just never felt as extremely uncertain as it does right now. I don't know I sort of remember late. Two Thousand Fifteen Yeah I mean late. Two Thousand Fifteen. You had all the issues going on with credit and you had One Big Fund blow up. So I'm still waiting. I'm still waiting for the second order. Effects of the market. Sell off that. We've seen to emerge that's true like we haven't actually seen any sort of major liquidations institutions of various is truly go bust yet amid the volatility. Obviously nobody You know we're not hoping that happens for now it's mostly been like a sort of a market's reaction but as you say there hasn't really been a A second order effects yet. Yeah very true so obviously the. The Corona virus is You know the clear contributing factor it's People are Gripped by panic. All around the world started in China late last year. Now it seems to be spreading to countries Basically everywhere but I also think that there is another contributor to the top. It's not just the virus that caused the top. Well I mean the virus didn't cause the top the virus was the catalyst for the top to no longer be the top and for markets to sell off but What are you thinking about you? Well I mean obviously it's our recent business week cover story that our colleague Luke Cowo- road about when the bull market got weird and About all these traitors online forums making crazy big beds and I think. In retrospect many people will see The recent cover as what really did it was good timing But in the history of of market crashes people always go back and sort of look or retail investors who start to become really overconfident. Some people actually look at retail investor participation in the market as evidence of the top coming And so some of the behavior that we have seen embodied in places like What Luke was talking about You you could maybe see that as an indication that markets were a little frothy. Yes so for those who actually haven't been paying attention to this particular subplot which is probably most people because there's bigger things going on in the world over the last several weeks prior to this extreme bout of selling volatility that we saw it was a lot of attention paid to the behavior of people on a certain Internet web page or chatroom or message board. Whatever you WANNA call it sent me. This is an extra celebrate it it was on Reddit. An extreme level of speculative activity particularly in the options market the likes of which we haven't really seen arguably since the glory days of the message boards back during the DOT COM bubble. And it's a really fascinating story. It's already Interesting Look at how the markets work and how retail players can really make a dent in publicly publicly listed equities. Yeah so this is the thing that I find the most fascinating about this subrata. It's called Wall Street. Bats and in recent months or over the past year or so a lot of people on it. Don't just think that they found good ways to make money Through investing in the market. They think that they found a good way to sort of forced the market into our force the market to do what they want it to do. So they actually think that they're impacting. How Wall Street functions and pushing up the stock price and that's where it gets really really interesting are they. In fact having this impact on the market right and I remember The message boards the raging bull message board silicon investor. Yahoo message boards from nine thousand nine. Nine two thousand and I think they were far less ambitious than what people these days. So for. More for more on this Let's start by bringing in Bloomberg's own Luke. Kalo who did have the cover story that curse the market overall Luke Thanks for joining us. So first of all. Just basically describe what it was that was worth covering hear about this About this subject I think for so long. We've been waiting for the return of the retail investor. And you know it's been this kind of a long awaited thing that's never really happened throughout any time during this bull market and this kind of the be careful what you wish for story because what became quite interesting is how you were seeing re retail enthusiasm get expressed in the markets. And so I. I remember there was one day. It was January eighth and this is when Tassell was still below five hundred if you can imagine a day in which that existed but It was a Wednesday and you saw a lot of bidding for the Tesla seven hundred strike. Call options that would expire at the end of that week. Tesla already been up like twenty five thirty percent that week as was its wont earlier this year but it just seemed like this is. This is such a ridiculous bet. Why would anyone do this? That doesn't make sense as a hedge. There's gotta be a better way to express a hedge if you're you know if you're short the stock or if you sold calls like what's going on here and someone said you know. This is just a Yolo bed and the second I heard Yalo bed I. I went to Wall Street. Batson tried to see what What do you only live once? Why not make a huge wager exactly and when I when I went there I saw a lot of people just That were seemingly enjoying a lot of success on Tesla and then that spiral to kind of other stories stocks where they thought the it would do nothing but go up and up and up and you know Virgin Galactic is the you know the next example plug power another one that had. It's kind of time in the headlights. And then lumber liquidators is one. I find very interesting because it's not like it's not that fun as stock lumber liquidators compared to virgin galactic compared to plug power like. It's it's really hard to wrap an enthusiastic. You know big story around it And yet you know a lot of the ones of the three ones I blast listed. They have in common. It's relatively low flow to relatively high amount of short interest. So when you got a group of people together that thought you know if we're all interested in the same thing and if we are all kind of combining buying power aware can have an impact well in in names like this it can and you were seeing at least the volumes. Go up like crazy in it It became too much to call it. Coincident coincident timing or coincidence after a certain amount of time. So Luke. Two things here. Can you walk us through exactly? What the options trading strategy was here. Because you know Joe and I kind of alluded to this in the intro. But it wasn't just that they could push the stock up. It was that they could actually exploit a loophole. In the way certain financial contracts or Wall Street actually works in order to make the stock go up and then secondly would you say that Wall Street bets is representative of the average retail investor. So on the on the first part of the in this this relates you. I'm not sure if if people actually believe this or this just becomes a you know very happy supporting evidence and something that makes you feel a lot better about making your moonshot at the. You know the fact that someone might be there to help by. Accentuate it and help bail you out so the thinking here. Is that when you say you're buying a call option on on the other side of that? If it's a fresh option there's going to be a dealer and dealers are not in the business of taking directional exposure. So when they're selling that call. Oh what are they doing? They're also buying a certain amount of stock to hedge their exposure. That's called Delta hedging and as if the stock does continue to go up from there it Resetting your Delta Hedge your which would be kind of gamma hedging but it's really just resetting your Delta hedge would entail that as the stock goes up you would be required to buy more and more to make sure that your directional exposure to the stock hasn't changed so when we describe this dynamic when we were talking about the the Tesla calls a tesla. See One thousand strike calls in. I believe late January someone on reddit latched onto this and said you know L. O. L. Bloomberg is admitting that the stock can only go up if we continue to buy calls because of the hedging algorithms. Which is you know. It's it's very much an overstatement of of what can actually happen. Can I just step in real quickly because you mentioned Delta hedging and Gamma hedging and all this stuff just for people who need a little bit of time to catch up walk US through very simply? The idea is people by a lot of call options. The dealer who sells it sells the call. Options are then on the hook if the call options essentially Become in the money right and so in order to avoid that risk of having to pay out a big wager just like a casino. They have to sort of balance their own books and that requires them to purchase the underlying stock. Yeah dealers are trying to make money from from the bid ask spread and making you pay both sides of it during your transaction They're not in the business of really making sure that Or or hoping that Tesla goes down the they'd like to be cover their butts in all contingencies in all cases. So that's what's going on there and it's just you know with some Greek letter surrounding it. But that's the that's the basic Kind of scenario mechanism. You describe perfectly so trying to exploit the fact that dealers are big banks on wall. Street need to maintain a a neutral position when they're writing all these contracts doesn't strike me as something that your average retail mom and pop investor Is Really doing so is Wall Street bets a little bit different. I? I'd say there are a lot more Aggressive about Certain tactics being used and the kind of The hurting behavior. I don't think the average retail traders really trying to think of okay like if I get together with Jim down the street and go Mary across the road who I play bridge with. If we really get together and start you know. Stockpiling are potential buying power that we can kind of. Maybe maybe lift some bids here. Maybe get some dealers offside may be caused some kind of gametes. So yeah it does seem from that From that point of view a lot more sophisticated and ambitious than you know Some people others speculating. An auction. Options might be on the other hand just because it sounds more sophisticated doesn't mean it's a better strategy doesn't make what's being said more true because if we've learned anything about kind of the recent market dynamics presuming you're the only actor in the market and able to move it is kind of. It's it's a fool's errand and that's why you know if some if there's power out there to To buy all these options you you have to recognize it on the other side of it. There's going to be Potentially a a desire to sell. And we've seen a lot of selling pressure come into the market that's completely overwhelmed. Whatever retail buying markets? Probably I mean. The market's gotten absolutely clobbered usage. Here article came out and presumably. If you had been buying about your call options ahead of that you're A- one is not doing particularly well this week with that strategy. Yeah like we. We saw a bunch of ten thousand percent Up Days for a lot of these moonshot options but most out of the money and very low delta options are going to expire worthless. It's just the kind of the name of the game. Okay so on that note in addition to having Luke. Join us for our episode. Today we have another guest. Luke has said Set the stage but we actually have the founder of the sub read at Wall Street beds joining us. Now Jamie Roginsky he Founded the page got it launched in two thousand twelve Jamie. Thank you very much for joining us for having me. Okay so I want to obviously get to everything that Luke talked about and this sort of crazy phenomenon in force in the market. That Wall Street bets has become well you started in twenty twelve. What was the purpose? What I'M GONNA start a new page on read called Wall Street beds. What

The Kidnapping of Sherri Papini
"Thanksgiving Day November twenty fourth fourth two thousand and sixteen Keith Papina says he got up early that day and at four thirty am his cell phone rang now this call comes in and he says it's a number. He did not recognize so he didn't answer his phone. It's an unknown caller yeah then the home phone own is ringing to which he does answer the home phone and he told twenty twenty th it was his wife screaming in the background yelling his name and a police officer to which he could hear the officer telling the wife that she needed to be calm. She needed to calm down twenty two days as after she vanished Sherry papina turned up one hundred fifty miles away from her home she was found in Yolo county around four. Am I am on the side of an entrance ramp to the northbound I five highway. This is near county road seventeen a female motorist Chris Allison Sutton called police upon seeing a frantic woman roadside waving what she believed to be shirt now. Alison says she didn't stop because she wasn't certain that this whole situation was safe for her to sny she does this. Maybe a crazy person on the side of the road a second driver ever this was a truck driver he he did stop and he called police. Sherry Pechiney was found she was clothed in light gray race sweat pants and a dark gray sweatshirt. I point out what she was found in because this is not what she was wearing when she went missing there was there's also a chain wrapped around her waist and her left wrist was tether to the chain with a zip tie. According to the local papers specifically the Sacramento Bee and the redding record searchlight Sherry also had hose clamps around her ankles to which sergeant agent Brian Jackson said quote appear to have acted as pain compliance restraints is very important to understand that nearly everything anything we know about Sheri's ordeal and her release we know from her husband. Keith Sherry has never made a public statement statement. She is never she's not even appeared in public at all about this and the sheriff's office the Shasta County Sheriff's Office. They've only really addressed any of these circumstances regarding Sheri's ordeal possibly because they feel they've been forced to because of Keith's public statements we'll present what he says what key says and then we'll address. What if anything thing we actually know to be true so I'm GonNa paraphrase some of this stuff the follows but this is what Keith told old twenty twenty about Sheri's release? He says that she was bound that she had a chain around her waist. She had a bag over her ahead. He says he can't remember if it was her right or her left arm that was chained to the chain but one of her ours ars was chained to the chain and then the other hand was chained to something inside the vehicle and to be clear the interviewer wants to clarify and says this is to make sure that she didn't jump out of the vehicle to which he says yes now. He says at some point they hey cut something to free her restraint that was holding her to the vehicle then they pushed her out and they drove away Sherry had one hand hand free and took the bag off of her head and at this point. She has no idea where she is. She runs to a house to which she doesn't. I'd say she says to him that it didn't look to be like a good idea so she then ran to another building but couldn't get inside the building and that's when she chose to run to the freeway and how far away is she found from her actual home a hundred and fifty miles so quite a distance yeah and he goes on to tell twenty twenty that she's you know she's screaming. She's Coughing Ping. He says that she's coughing up blood and screaming trying to get people to stop you know get a vehicle to stop so they can help her but she tells him that she thinks that because of the chains the chain wrapped around her that maybe people thought she escaped from a prison or or escape from somewhere that you know the she was a bad person and maybe that's why they wouldn't stop so so she purposely tried to hide the chain to try to get somebody to stop and eventually we know that somebody did stop why I guess she was severely beaten as well aww she had a broken nose and she had bumps. It seemed like all over Faso that this could be an you know. I don't know if there was any dried blood blood or what the bruising situation would be but that that could startled somebody the twenty twenty broadcast they played a radio transmission that that summoned the ambulance to the scene where Sherry was found. You can hear radio chatter but what what I heard in there says attention station eight unknown medical problem. It's going to be north on. I five female needs medical attention. She is heavily battered attard. It's going to be some sort of assault now. Keith after the phone call he rushes to the Woodland Memorial Hospital this to see his wife Life Sherry. He says when he got to share his room he was horrified. He told Good Morning America quote nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see upon my arrival at the hospital nor the details of the true hell I was about to hear my first sight of my wife in a hospital bed her her face covered in bruises ranging from yellow to black because of repeated beatings the bridge of her nose broken her now emaciated create a body of eighty-seven pounds was covered multicolored bruises severe burns Red Rashes and chain markings her signature long blonde blonde hair had been chopped off she had been branded and I could feel the rise of her scabs under my fingers and quote the Shasta County Sheriff's office well their information has been much less detailed than that of her husband and authorities actually expressed frustration that Keith revealed so much information to the media right because this is ongoing investigation so he says that her her injuries the way he describes it. This is pretty severe stuff right. Yeah the the thing that would kind of go against that is is this regarding the severity of her injuries. Sherry Pechiney was released from the hospital and went to a hotel hell with her husband that same day right and this according to the sheriff she was treated for her injuries and released just as someone would be see if they had sprained an ankle. That's what the Sheriff said Yeah but the Sheriff did say that they were were ecstatic to report fort that Sherry did she was located and had been reunited with her family right in but to be on the side of Keith and his wife look at some of these brutal. UFC fights people go five rounds twenty five minutes of punching each other in the face and kickin each each other in the shins and these guys barely can walk out of the octagon their faces look to form. They look awful. During the press conferences they go get checked out by the doctor and then they're they're sat away. The investigators from the Major Crimes Unit did speak with Sherry. This was briefly in the hospital and then they he did question her at length five days later after she recovered from these injuries. According to Sheriff Saco Sherry was quote. Oh cooperative and courageous in the intense and traumatic interviews with investigators he said Sherry reported the following. She said that she was abducted by two Hispanic women in a dark colored. SUV with large rear windows she had no other description of the vehicle goal and she could not identify on any video surveillance footage taken in the area around the time of her abduction note that the sheriff's chiefs office never came out and said that Sherry was definitely abducted while on her run we know that to be believed to be the case ace by her family beforehand all right. So what else have we done. Sherry only gives the officers a let's say vague description seven of her abductors right and she went on to tell police that she avoided looking at them so they would not beat her and that her head was covered for or some of the time that she was held captive and we don't know how dark it was in this place or anything yeah yeah there again. We have vague descriptions of everything because we're hearing this. This is what Sherry tells the police and this is what they have chose to release to to the public. She says that one of the women note. She says that she was abducted by two women one of the women had a long curly hair are thin eyebrows and pierced ears. She had a thick accent and she appeared to be between twenty and thirty years old about five foot put five inches tall suspect number two according to Sherry was older. Maybe forty to fifty years of age about five afoot seven and had straight black hair with some gray she had thick eyebrows and pierced ears both were armed with handguns John's. She said that the kidnappers drove for about two and a half hours non. Stop on the first day. The kidnappers spoke Spanish most of the time the female captors were the only two people with whom Sherry had contact with for the duration of her captivity but Sankoh confirmed this she was bound with this restraints when she was found and Jackson the other officer said that Sherry had been branded on her right shoulder older after and appeared battered and bruised they they actually think this branding was something like actually said something yeah yeah. The description I read was that the brand appeared to be a message rather than a symbol but whatever it is. It's unclear what it what it's intended the to be. I think they know what it is or at least the the rumors that I heard is they know what the messages they're not releasing that to the public okay I I had saw that it was illegible. They couldn't make anything out of it but I don't know that to be true so I don't Wanna I don't WanNa steer anybody the wrong the other way I mean that's pretty creepy that somebody would brand you and not just brand new with some symbol but some type of message Sherry told investigators is that she was not sexually assaulted. we do have investigators. That Dick did confirm that Sherry's hair was shoulder length when she was found now. I do want to point out that a lot of people suspected Sheri's exceedingly long hair was actually extensions that were may have just been removed. the the thing here to give the best description to those out there listening is that when she was found her hair was not what I would call short. It was just shorter it was it was shoulder length at the time now Sherry told detectives that just before she was released she could hear her captors. Having an argument it followed by a gunshot she said the younger of her abductors then took her from the room where she was being held captive drove her down a winding road and dropped dropped her off near interstate five a be on the lookout immediately went out for a dark colored SUV with two Latino Tino women but everyone acknowledged that in California that description well it didn't go very far on the day after Sherry was found her sister held a press conference and she was reading a statement that was prepared by Sharee and Keith

There's a startup and San Francisco has one that's drawn a measure of controversy molecule sells seven hundred ninety nine dollar air purifier that it claims destroys air pollutants as opposed to just trapping them with a fine mesh filter as traditional purifiers do J arou- a co founder and the chief operating officer said the company has seen sales tick up since Thursday when the campfire erupted and began offering same day delivery in San Francisco to meet demand. Some people criticized the startup in tweets and face. Book comments for pricing. It's device. Ohi others called on molecule, which is spelled M O L E K U L E to donate devices to schools and evacuation centers. Everyone is talking about how great molecule is today. Jake Chapman, a tech investor said and a tweet that's great. But can we also talk about how horrifying it is that climate change makes it so only people with a spare eight hundred dollars can afford safe air for themselves and their children Jiao said molecule employee's delivered donated units to the Red Cross evacuation center at the Butte county fairgrounds over the weekend. They're working to get more units out to fire houses and relief groups this week as molecule did during the wine country fires molecule asked its employees to come into the office over the weekend to help with surging demand without blinking.

Acute Flaccid Myelitis what appears to be a new disease that is still surrounded by a great deal of uncertainty.
"There's Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion with increasing frequency we've been forced to confront brand new diseases that we didn't understand perhaps it's human nature that when we don't understand something the uncertainty leads us to fear, which leads to blame 'isolation and stigma in our lifetime. There have been many new diseases including aids and SARS and legionnaire's disease and mad cow disease to name, but a few well, the new kid on the block is a new disease called acute flaccid mile Itis or a F m the disease is still rare over the past ten months, we've seen sixty two cases mostly in children five in the state of California since two thousand fourteen when a FM was first reported there have been three hundred eighty six cases in the United States. However, this is probably an underestimate. We. I've no idea what's causing the disease, although experts do suspect some sort of a virus the symptoms are worrisome weakness in one or more Lim that can last from days to well. Maybe forever, it appears that the insult is an attack on the nervous system most likely at the level of the spinal cord M R I's scans show lesions in part of the spinal cord called the gray matter the symptoms. Do look a bit like polio. But one thing is very clear. This is not polio. Dr Ron Chapman is the healthier for yolo county and was formerly the head of California's department of health. I asked him the process around how we come to understand new disease. He explains that the process starts with a few doctors observing that something's unusual and reporting it to their local health department who then contacts the state health department what the CDC does. Is bay alert state health departments and the local health departments that they're looking for these cases, they ask us at the local level to work with our medical communities. The CDC depends on doctors and nurses reporting these symptoms when doctors don't report it's nearly impossible to track the spread of the disease. Unfortunately reporting is voluntary doctors have no obligation to report unusual symptoms and the reporting process is time consuming. But once a report is made the next step is interviewing doctors and patients and families and others. The interviewing and field investigation is often done by CDs epidemiology intelligence service, but they need to do more than just interviews. The lab testing of this is really important too. So there's a bunch of labs it get done. There has to be an MRI to look at the brain and the spine and they're. Acting all of that information from local level in analyzing it at CDC because we have no idea what causes a FM. Public health experts are left with only being able to give basic generic communicable disease prevention advice, like washing your hands and getting lots of rest, admittedly. The prevention advice is not very specific. And it doesn't answer many of the questions you're probably eager to ask is the disease spread from person to person are there clusters of the disease in families are neighborhoods is the role for insects like ticks or mosquitoes. But Dr Chapman is a big believer in honesty and transparency in these situations. We don't have the answers. And so we all have to work the other the health departments clinics. The public CDC all of us to figure it out. And then as we learn more being honest about what we're learning. So. Suspect. We'll be hearing lots more about a FM as more data becomes available. This is Dr Michael Wilks. With a second opinion this podcast was made by public radio station. KCRW our status as a nonprofit enables us to make bold and unusual programs.

"yolo" Discussed on Terrible, Thanks For Asking
"A quick warning that his episode contains some strong language. It's the first time I died. I was thirteen running on a treadmill. I'm Nora mcnerney and this is terrible. Thanks for asking. I have never died. Do people still say yolo. I just wish we are still saying that, okay, you only live once. And when we were saying that and we all were, I don't care if you think you're too cool for it now, I am not when we were saying it. We were saying to me in like Carpe Diem. Basically, I will put this on my credit card. You know what? Yeah, today and ordering a blooming onion. That's what we meant. But today's episode is not about yellow any of those senses because Leilani, whose voice you just heard she's done more than yellow. Can you define death? What does it? What does it mean to die? It's tricky. Okay. I'm in a defined death the way that organ donation defines death, which is when there's no. Brain activity. I can't say that Leilani peaked at thirteen because she seems like a pretty cool adult, but also up until thirteen. Her life was pretty good. Yeah, I I had like up until that point played all of the sports. Like literally every sport there was, I had tried at a certain point, and then I had just come back from this trip to like rural Mexico, middle of nowhere and was in my parents house and was like running on a treadmill as I did every Monday and the deal in my house was you could do that and then you'd be able to watch seven because we had a TV in the garage. I feel like a Facebook name saying this, but this is something that only millennials will truly get watching seventh heaven as a treat. Seventh heaven used to be something we watched on ironically, and as a little treat yourself. That's what lay Lamis doing. She's running on the treadmill watching seventh heaven, having a beautiful middle school life, and then she isn't. She's an washing seventh heaven and she isn't living. Way lonnie's mom, here's this weird sound in the garage. And the weird sound is her daughter falling off the treadmill. Leilani was a thirteen year old girl who had a cardiac arrest, and then she was revived and told that her life was never going to be the way that she had mentioned. It would be I have a vivid memory of everything being white because the white room, the white sheets, etcetera. And I remember when I asked him like the second that I was like, dad, what's going on. I knew that I had asked it before, but I still didn't know what the answer to that was. So I, my diagnosis was is kind of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is like the left ventricle is too big. So feats too quickly. And so most often that's diagnosed postmortem the first time I remember being like really explained and hearing that I couldn't do any of the things that I done before was my pediatric. Cardiologists because I remember sitting in clinic with him and I had made a list and I was like, can I win, sir? Can I kite, sir? Can I go sailing? Can I do tennis? And like at that age, it was. It was just so weird to me to hear like no competitive sports, no playing sport that could like damage the defibrillator. And so I was like trying to find a loophole, I guess..
