    Freakonomics - How to Be More Productive

    It's Self-Improvement Month at Freakonomics Radio. We begin with a topic that seems to be on

    everyone's mind: how to get more done in less time. First, however, a warning: there's a big

    difference between being busy and being productive.

    Freakonomics Radio - The Economics of Sleep, Part 1


    Could a lack of sleep help explain why some people get much sicker than others?

    Freakonomics Radio - Is the World Ready for a Guaranted Basic Income?


    A lot of full-time jobs in the modern economy simply don't pay a living wage. And even those

    jobs may be obliterated by new technologies. What's to be done so that financially vulnerable

    people aren't just crushed? It may finally be time for an idea that economists have promoted

    for decades.

    Freakonomics Radio - Are Payday Loans Really as Evil as People Say?


    Critics -- including President Obama -- say short-term, high-interest loans are predatory,

    trapping borrowers in a cycle of debt. But some economists see them as a useful financial

    instrument for people who need them. As the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau promotes new

    regulation, we ask: who's right?

    Why Uber Is an Economist’s Dream


    To you, it’s just a ride-sharing app that gets you where you’re going. But to an economist, Uber is a massive repository of moment-by-moment data that is helping answer some of the field’s most elusive questions.

    Freakonomics Podcast & Stone Skipping


    In May, the Freakonomics podcast interviewed Tom Whipple about his book How to Win Games & Beat People. I had one chapter in this (very funny) book. [see my photos for the text]. During the broadcast I was fortunate enough to be mentioned :-) I'm posting the audio for the stone skip portion here -- the video is a montage to go along with Whipple's (enthusiastic!) discussion. [Gift to the World! lol] Coolest mention since I made the Harper's number-page.

    Has the U.S. Presidency Become a Dictatorship?


    Sure, we all pay lip service to the Madisonian system of checks and balances. But as one legal scholar argues, presidents have been running roughshod over the system for decades. The result? An accumulation of power that’s turned the presidency into a position the Founders wouldn’t have recognized.

    Is the Gender Pay Gap Real?


    In which John examines the complex and tangled question of the gender wage gap, and looks at some of the reasons why women who work full time are paid less than men who work full time.


    The pay gap increases as workers age, and there is a pay gap across all education and experience levels and in almost all professions. Also, the pay gap is larger for women of color, across all education and experience levels:

    The size of the gender pay gap depends on how you calculate it, but discrimination is a big factor in the pay gap: and

    The gender wage gap for MBA graduates increases over time:

    Women's pay goes down on average relative to men once there are kids in a family; men's pay goes up.

    A really interesting, nuanced interview with an economist who studies the gender pay gap:

    The wage gap won't close at this rate until 2056:

    An analysis of the role race plays in the gender wage gap:

    The gender wage gap is 10 cents in New Zealand, and 37 cents in South Korea:

    The exhaustive and at times exhausting wikipedia article about the gender wage gap:

    In the U.S. (and most countries), most unpaid work is done by women:

    There's a pay gap among librarians, and male librarians are disproportionately likely to become directors: and

    iPhone5 wifi slowness


    iPhone5 wifi slowness

    Using Downcast podcast app to demonstrate iPhone5 wifi slowness problem. NOTICE I am connected to my wifi access point (Apple Airport Extreme).

    At 33 seconds, Downcast finds a new Freakonomics Radio podcast that it will download. The podcast is 39.9 MB's. Also notice at the top of the app, it shows 15 of 32 podcasts have been refreshed.

    POINT #1: Watch the Freakonomics Radio download speed, starting at 35 seconds:

    35 seconds = 45.2 KB's
    36 seconds = 83.4 KB's = difference of 38.2 KB's
    37 seconds = 148.5 KB's = difference of 65.1 KB's
    38 seconds = 186.7 KB's = difference of 38.2 KB's
    39 seconds = 237.6 KB's = difference of 50.9 KB's
    40 seconds = 272.9 KB's = difference of 35.3 KB's
    41 seconds = 318.2 KB's = difference of 45.3 KB's
    42 seconds = 353.5 KB's = difference of 35.3 KB's
    43 seconds = 391.7 KB's = difference of 38.2 KB's
    44 seconds = 429.9 KB's = difference of 38.2 KB's
    45 seconds = 459.6 KB's = difference of 29.7 KB's
    46 seconds = 502.0 KB's = difference of 42.4 KB's
    47 seconds = 544.4 KB's = difference of 42.4 KB's
    48 seconds = 579.8 KB's = difference of 35.4 KB's
    49 seconds = 613.7 KB's = difference of 33.9 KB's
    50 seconds = 694.3 KB's = difference of 80.6 KB's

    I then jump to the settings app, turn wifi off at 53 seconds, and jump back to the Downcast app which is still downloading the Freakonomics Radio podcast. Notice the upper left hand corner signifies that I am now on AT&T LTE with roughly half signal strength.

    57 seconds = 955.9 KB's = difference of 261.6 KB's
    58 seconds = 2 MB's = difference of 1092.1 KB's
    59 seconds = 3.1 MB's = difference of 1.1 MB's
    1:00 minute = 4.4 MB's = difference of 1.3 MB's
    1:01 minutes = 5.8 MB's = difference of 1.4 MB's
    1:02 minutes = 7.1 MB's = difference of 1.3 MB's
    1:03 minutes = 8.4 MB's = difference of 1.3 MB's
    1:04 minutes = 9.4 MB's = difference of 1 MB's
    1:05 minutes = 10.3 MB's = difference of 0.9 MB's
    1:06 minutes = 11.3 MB's = difference of 1 MB's
    1:07 minutes = 12.5 MB's = difference of 1.2 MB's

    CONCLUSION to point #1: When wifi was enabled AND in use Downcast was able to download at rates ranging from 29.7 KB's to 80.6 KB's. When LTE was enabled Downcast was able to download at rates ranging from 1.1 MB's to 1.4 MB's. A VERY OBVIOUS speed difference.

    Point #2: At 33 seconds it has refreshed (looked at to determine what needs to be downloaded) 15 of 32 podcasts. At 49 seconds it has increased to 16 of 32 podcasts.

    1 second = 4 of 32
    2 seconds = 5 of 32
    3 seconds = 5 of 32
    7 seconds = 7 of 32
    8 seconds = 10 of 32
    9 seconds = 10 of 32
    10 seconds = 10 of 32
    11 seconds = 10 of 32
    12 seconds = 10 of 32
    13 seconds = 10 of 32
    14 seconds = 10 of 32
    15 seconds = 10 of 32
    16 seconds = 10 of 32
    17 seconds = 10 of 32
    18 seconds = 10 of 32
    19 seconds = 10 of 32
    20 seconds = 10 of 32
    21 seconds = 10 of 32
    22 seconds = 10 of 32
    23 seconds = 11 of 32
    24 seconds = 12 of 32
    25 seconds = 13 of 32
    33 seconds = 15 of 32
    34 seconds = 16 of 32
    35 seconds = 16 of 32
    36 seconds = 16 of 32
    37 seconds = 16 of 32
    38 seconds = 16 of 32
    39 seconds = 16 of 32
    40 seconds = 16 of 32
    41 seconds = 16 of 32
    42 seconds = 16 of 32
    43 seconds = 16 of 32
    44 seconds = 16 of 32
    45 seconds = 16 of 32
    46 seconds = 16 of 32
    47 seconds = 16 of 32
    48 seconds = 16 of 32
    49 seconds = 16 of 32

    THEN WIFI IS TURNED OFF and LTE takes over. When I return to the Downcast app:

    56 seconds = 18 of 32 have been refreshed
    57 seconds = 22 of 32
    58 seconds = 22 of 32
    59 seconds = 22 of 32
    1:00 minute = 23 of 32
    1:01 minute = 23 of 32
    1:02 minute = 24 of 32
    1:03 minute = 26 of 32
    1:04 minute = 27 of 32
    1:05 minute = 28 of 32
    1:06 minute = 30 of 32
    1:07 minute = 31 of 32

    CONCLUSION to point #1: When wifi was enabled AND in use, in 49 seconds, Downcast was only able to refresh 12 podcasts. That is an average of 0.24 podcasts per second. When LTE was enabled Downcast was able to refresh 13 podcasts in 11 seconds, an average of 1.18 podcasts per second! A VERY OBVIOUS speed difference.

    My Cox cable modem internet connection is NOT the problem. Here are a few speed tests to prove that:

    Here are speed tests on AT&T LTE:

    My wifi AP (Apple Airport Extreme) is also NOT the problem, as I have many devices (including other Apple iOS devices, aka iPad2, iPad3, iPhone 4S, etc.) connected to it, and ONLY my iPhone 5's has speed problems.

    UPDATE 7/24/13: Apple called and is closing my trouble ticket, as they believe the iPhone 5 is working to within their specifications. Listen to the call yourself:

    Episode 5 - Feminism


    Feminism! What a huge topic! As something that is firmly a part of my own identity, it seemed important to discuss the legitimacy of rejecting or accepting the movement as part of everyday life.

    Stuff mentioned:
    Freakonomics Radio – The True Story of the Gender Pay Gap…s-radio-podcast/
    Sarah Silverman on Ellen
    Aziz Ansari on The David Letterman Show
    Clementine Ford novel - Fight Like a Girl
