Rep. Matt Rosendale Doesn't Know How Kevin McCarthy Will Get the Votes
"Things going on with Kevin McCarthy and we're going to have an update of all the shenanigans right now with a new guest on the show from Montana's second congressional district, a man who served in the House of Representatives in Montana in the Senate. He has been the Senate majority leader and we are delighted to have congressman Matt rosendale with us on America first wink, welcome congressman. Doctor gorka, it's good to be with you today. All right, so tell us what was going on on Capitol Hill yesterday and today, and there's quite a few people who have the letter R after their name who do not want Kevin McCarthy to be the speaker. Is that correct? That is correct. We can not continue to put the same people in to lead this conference and use the same rules that they have been utilizing for the last several years and hope and pray that maybe we'll get a different outcome. Absolutely. Now, one of the things I heard is that for an hour and a half, Marjorie Taylor Greene was negotiating behind closed doors with Kevin McCarthy. Do you know anything about that? Because that disturbs me a little bit. That I can not speak to, what I will tell you is I think that there's probably going to be a lot of discussions that take place over the next 40 days leading up to January the third when mister McCarthy is going to have to try to accumulate 200 and 18 votes on the floor. He did not receive that yesterday. He didn't receive 200. I'm sure a lot of your listeners listen heard the quote from representative Matt Gaetz yesterday. He didn't get 200. He didn't get 190. And so if you couldn't acquire 218 votes over the last 6 years, how is it that you expect to gather the additional 30 that you need over the next 40 days?

The Dollar Only Works When You Trust the Paper It's Written On
"Most Americans have not experienced a currency reset you wouldn't have unless you're a 190 or a 109, and you remember what happened back then. That our dollar has been so constant, our dollar has been so strong, our dollar has been so, let's say, exceptional for years, that we haven't really thought much about it. Well, our dollar bill is not based in anything. It's based purely on the full faith and credit of the United States government. So in simple economics, we know that dollars or money replaces the barter system. So the barter system is what very inefficient, and also it does not allow the needs and wants problem to be solved. So for example, if producer Connor is a chicken farmer and he wants to be able to trade with me, but I don't want chickens and I'm a cantaloupe farmer. And we want to be able to trade chickens for cantaloupes, but he doesn't want cantaloupes, and I don't want chickens, then we can't trade together. The other problem is that Connor has to sell his chickens before they perish. So he has to find a buyer of chickens in time. Dollar bills are value solve all of these problems, right? So I can convert my cantaloupes to dollars, and then I can go to Connor and trade for chickens or whatever else he might have. So it's a replacement, and it also allows perishing goods such as time and talent and things that you put on shelves that decrease with value over time, such as pastries or whatever, things that have expiration dates, you can immediately capture the value in an instance because then it becomes somebody else's responsibility. By definition, it makes an economy a hundred, 200, 300 times more efficient, almost immediately. But it only works if you trust the piece of paper that is replacing the value itself.
Turning Point USA to Rally Against Biden's Big Business Vaccine Mandate
"Okay, I want to get into mandates and vaccine news, breaking today. The Biden regime has now officially put forth the rule for the private sector mandate through osha. The occupied occupational safety and health administration, and so we have said on this show that there was no mandate there was no mandate. That is no longer true. It was true then, it is not true now as there is now a rule from osha to require employers to comply. So basically, let me read the essence of it. This is the ultimate constitutional workaround and for a reason that is so incredibly inexplicable and stunning. The occupational safety and health administration is giving employers with more than 100 employees. Us. A January 4th deadline to comply with President Biden's Fauci virus vaccine mandate and threatening thousands of dollars in fines for defy it businesses. According to a fact sheet released by The White House Thursday. This will impact over 17 million workers. Okay, so we're not going to comply at turning point USA. We have a 195 employees, almost all of whom are under the age of 30 very few are over the age of 30, many of whom are already have contracted the Fauci virus, some of our employees have decided to get vaccinated. A lot of our employees do not want to get vaccinated. And who is Biden to say that all of a sudden you are going to tell us what to do with our medical decisions for our employees, it's every single individual employees choice. You're going to come in until turning point USA how to run our business? No. And so I was just texting right now with our attorneys. We are going to sue in federal court. We said that earlier, we won't be alone. There's many lawsuits happening. I just hope that quite honestly that my fear is that a poorly written lawsuit in a bad district is going to be filed. That is my fear that will uphold this thing. But we will be suing, we have a 190 plus employees and I'm not getting vaccinated. One of my great employees, I'm not going to say his name right down there. He got vaccinated. So we have plenty of people that make different choices. We don't judge based on it. I don't care. I don't ask about it. And yet, I want you to think about how, yes, of course, it's obviously patently unconstitutional. It's all this. But this is super creepy. Could you imagine using osha to come in and be like, yes, I need to go see your medical history, and you see what drugs you're on? I need to go see how many employees you have on prozac? Like, who are who do you think you
Professor Victor Davis Hanson Discusses His Latest Book 'The Dying Citizen'
"Welcome back to America first with professor Viktor Davis Hansen. Professor the book is titled the dying citizen. Let's spend a few minutes on the importance of this concept because in an age where civics seems to be dead where your far more likely is a teenager to be taught that America is the problem, not that citizenship is essential for the healthy functioning of any nation, especially republic. Will you give us the prey, the cliff notes on citizenship and why it is the bedrock of western civilization? Yeah, I try to point out that we think we take it for granted. But in the 7000 year history of civilization, it came very late, 2500 years ago in Greece and then later in Rome, and then through Europe with starts and halts and ends and a checkered history. And now we have it because the natural condition of man apparently was to be a serf or a slave or a subject, but a citizen that asked a lot of a person, they have to elect their own officials. They have to keep them accountable. They have to make their own budgets and expenditures. They choose when to fight and when not. And so it requires a lot of responsibilities in exchange for these unique rights. And it's fragile. There's a 190 nations in the world today, and I think you could be charitable to say 90 of them are constitutional societies, most or not. And they were not in history. And this country is the longest surviving constitution republic. Of the republics or democracies that survive today. And in the book, I try to suggest that historically, if you look at these systems, you have to have a middle class, and we're losing it. We know that. Now with this erosion and wages again that had been arrested the last four years, it's imperiled more

They each confessed that they had originally lied to police during the investigation which called into question if they could be trusted at all. There's some being in secret that these kids are hiding the defense finished by calling attention to the fact that there was no actual physical evidence connecting matthew to the crime just hearsay. That didn't equate to prove especially when some of the witnesses were known as liars there is no murder. The is no murder weapon. There is no true rules to dismember. Abban there are no fingerprints. There is no blood. There is no dna. There is no motive.

"Body back a head. The severity of the injuries would require an eleven hour autopsy to be performed even after that with a multitude of injuries it was hard for the medical examiner to determine if the man was decapitated before or after death major vessels and structure of the knack were severed remove the had. There's just too much camera to that area to really know if the person was live or two time. The sheer cruelty of the crime had the community in an uproar. The idea of missing teen is one thing but when a headless and handling corpse shows up in the river people start to pay attention and for the local authorities. This wasn't the kind of attention. They wanted with rumors circulating that the community was not safe. They were hard pressed to solve this case fast. The local media flocked to the scene trying to get any details they could. Police are confirming to me that a headless body was found around three this afternoon. That body is of a male the grisly discovery triggering a full-scale search of the area. Police are also not confirming if the headless body. That was found here. Is that of a young teenager. Who was reported missing with the shock of the gruesome murder rippling through the neighborhood. And the news residents found the whole idea unimaginable. It's just sickening. it's staw it's a scary to think that something like this could happen so close to home kind of in shock. it's a vicious. I mean it's sickening. I can't even imagine. I can't imagine how someone could be that that's sick but to those family and friends who searched for the missing teen for the past. Two weeks fears rose that it was him. They found dismembered and dumped in the cold river. My fear is that you know. It's him but i also feel bad because this is somebody son. In addition to miss paulino lee also had a stepfather. His mother's ex husband this man. Carlos lauria anything having stayed out there just i hope for the best. They still working on it. I can't talk right now. What is your fear. Now this point. I'm afraid i hope he's not him. Fear was mounting dot. Just fear that the body was that of missing teen but also that a person capable of brutally stabbing and meticulously dismembering another human being was loose amongst the residents of that neighborhood and the citizens of the city at large. The chief of police and the mayor hurriedly addressed public in a press conference the day following the discovery of the body who discovered a body along the banks of the magara these on the information that we have. I believe that there is no further threat to the city of lawrence while the chief tried to quell the fears. The mayor addressed the crowd of onlookers and journalists to reassure their faith in the city's legal system for me. It's with a heavy heart. That i stand before you after body was found in our city on the banks of the river. Merrimack the factors driving this investigation for me needs to be first to make sure there's a good positive identification of the body so we can have some closure on who the victims as secondly at the officers involved bill a rock solid case to aid capture. The people involved which is not an easy task doesn't happen fast and be for the da and his team to build a case that could put those evolved behind bars. This would bring closure to our community. I also think that it would be prudent for the disa- to make a personal statement about the progress of this case. The residents of the community are worried and the rumors and innuendo are causing greater concern. For safety you could help allay those fears but those fears were running rampant and leading to worrisome theories about why this unidentified person was murdered. Ms thirteen gang activity in town. That may be late of this time. I have no idea about that. I think that's the. Da's office mayor concern about this escalation of violence in your city. A decapitation is very very rare in avid. Right here listen. That's why you know. I i i love your work. You're in. i'm concerned about this people out there. What i'm saying is that the district attorney is the only one that's going to come up with a decision on who the with the victim is. Fear gripped the city because of the very real possibility that ms thirteen had something to do with it the year before lease disappearance. Another teen was stabbed to death in the park by several members of ms thirteen. And the tally of this crime indicated a clear escalation of violence. Then the police returned to miss paulino with a disheartening request. On then they call me and ask for his dental records because they found the body for a moment in the news. And everybody's talking to said it was gonna doll to. It wasn't a kid and had a little tiny hope. She hoped the dental records would rule out lee as the body but in the end it wouldn't for lease family. Their worst fear had come true. Your your your immediate reaction of your worst fears. Yeah i'm sorry. Can't dunk noah reyna condolences. Thank you as paulino refused to believe it or wanted to see his body. Believe obviously at first. They denied her request but she was adamant about seeing the body she needed to see it with her own eyes to realize it was true but i still insisted so. They let me going to boston. And they showed me just a picture of his head in these types of situations they usually don't let the loved ones. See the body they recommend holding onto the way you remember them rather than replace it with the horrible reality but when ms paulino gazed upon her sons picture her thoughts were of his birth when lee was born the first thing i said or so on newborn babies. I little weird but i've been. He turned out beautiful and so handsome. But when i saw this picture. I only saw lee sleeping and he was the most handsome teenager at seen. Miss paulino was incapable of seeing her son in a bad light. The cruel reality didn't mar her image of lee when she looked at his picture. She saw her child sleeping peacefully as the news spread that the body was indeed lease. Those friends in the community were left with only memories and heartbreak. Leo is such a humble young man and he's going to be greatness missed by latin by many. It's very awful. Just disbelief at this point than even with lease body. The police didn't seem to be any closer to understanding why this happened or.

I used to get a lot of compliments that day on my hair. All because of the manny's so i had put them amazon naked. Wanna get manny's on your clothes smell like owed sandwich. So i Naked i have the mayo on my hair. I've got my shower cap on and Just doing a few things and now it's time to take a shower. Get ready for work and go. And what are the chances. I mean really. What are the chances. The shower was broken. You probably thought the story was going but the water came out of the bath spigot but the thing you pull up to make it go to the shower and i was thinking i'm going to fix this. I can fix it. I'm pulling it up. Then i'm trying to think i'm sticking. Maybe there was like kind of a geeky thing on the actual shower like to make it different. Sometimes you can make it more like stronger. Spray or lighter spray. And i'm like me be that says Fiddling with that and I like polling really hard on the thing that makes up to put up to go to the shower. And now i know some of you are thinking well call down to the front desk and they'll send somebody up now remember a naked with a bunch of manny's on my hair with a shower cap on i don't want to call somebody And how long is that gonna take and now. I'm like at the point where i need to get ready for work so i don't really have time to wait for someone to come up not to put clothes on them to get the mayonnaise on my clothes so i decided very glamorous to use a coffee cup so i just would take the coffee cup under the spigot where it went into the bathtub and pour it over my head and linking. This was not. It's not an easy process. Because i have a lot of manny's i so the moral of the story is if you're gonna put mayonnaise on your head test the shower first to make sure it works..
Audioburst CEO Amir Hirsh on the Benefits of the 'Burst'
"Know you rabbit hole trying to find if you put in A good search engine like what you guys have over there and audio burst the kind of homes in on what you're looking for so you don't get a lot of hodgepodge out there. Why is that so much. Challenge out there and how did you. How did you and your company Overcome that challenge to to make it make it more more easier. More user friendly win ones are searching for different content so when we look at that problem we mapped multiple challenges that exist in audio mailing or that doesn't exist in texts and in other mediums mainly texts that we're accustomed to today In discovering and finding audio there are several challenges. One audio is usually produced in long forms. It's the thirty minutes or one hour. Long of a podcast. It's a forty five minute long over show and win. I want to hear something specific. Or even if i want to subscribe to podcasts. I wanna get a taste before. I wanna understand. What is being spoken. I cannot listen to the full show halfway through it. Understand that you know what. That's not exactly what i was looking for. Preferred different opinion or a different type of reporting so the first thing sold is that we've cut it into what we call burst into a short clips into specific items. So when you search. I don't give the beginning of the podcast you're brought to that burst that section that answered your question and you can get the exact answer that you're looking for especially in today's short attention span that humanity has you get the essence of what you're looking for and then you can make the decision whether you want to go the full thing you want to listen to the long form the full show or you want to listen to another result. Perhaps there's a better pocket that will answer your needs so the first challenge that made audio difficult to Fine to discover was to make it more concise to the point than we thought that by cutting it into bursts.

Fortnite for beginners
"Fortnight is a massive multiplayer online video. Game developed by epic games released in two thousand seventeen is available in three distinct game mode versions so they otherwise share the same general game. Play in game engine But these three distinct versions are fortnight. Colon save the world. Okay fortnight no colon battle royale fortnite battle royale and fortnight creative. Oh there's three of them. So the objectives vary depending on which mode you're playing but the broad goal of fortnight is to survive against a prolonged force antagonist who will attempt to eliminate you okay so for night begin from an internal game jamat epoch game so there in american video game and software developer and publisher based out of north carolina So they did this internal game jam around twenty eleven after they published the game gears of war so a game jam which i only recently learned at work a game. Jam is a contest where participants try to a video game from scratch with a specific deadline. So it's usually like twenty four hours or you know maybe maybe seventy two hours to work to come up with this so it's kind of like a like a creativity burst. I'll shut the the bowl of that is to work with other people and create a game from scratch so depending on the format again your participants might be in teams maybe you are working independently. Who knows but epic games is also the developer of the unreal engine which is an open source in advanced real time. Three d creation tool. And you'll hear a lot of Video games and special effects and even like some film stuff runs off of this unreal engine. So the unreal engine. Original purpose was as a state of the art game engine. But it's now used across industries so it's for cutting edge content interactive experiences in immersive virtual worlds Unreal engine is a real time engine. An editor that features photo realistic rendering dynamic physics and effects robust data translation and also lifelike animation. So it's kind of a big thing whenever somebody is using the unreal engine. You know you're going to get really could effects from it so that that's all out of epic games which which founded in the savage that engine so for me was not initially one of the games that was actually developed during that game jim but the concept of merging the construction game genre so games like sim city or minecraft with shooter games came together and it led to the foundation affording. So you probably know. It sim city is if you're our age but a refresher on minecraft so in minecraft which was first released in two thousand nine actually players. Explorer blackie procedurally generated three d world with infinite terrain and they may discover an extract raw materials craft tools and items and build structures or works so game modes in minecraft include a survival mode in which players must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health and creative mode where players have unlimited resources. So players can modify or maud game to create new gameplay mechanics items and assets and minecraft has a very distinctive like visual s. That like you can recognize if somebody showing you a screenshot of minecraft. So what epic did is they prepared to release fortnight as a paid early access title in july twenty seventeen and they had plans to release it as free to play some time in twenty nine thousand nine after gaining feedback from players to improve the game so originally titled fortnight and lear renamed to fortnight colon. Save the world. This original base module is a player versus environment cooperative game. So you have four players collaborating toward a common objective on various missions. The game is set after a fluke. Storm appears across earth causing about ninety eight percent of the population to disappear and the survivors are attacked by zombie. Like husks so the player takes the role of commanders of home. Shelters collecting resources saving survivors and defending equipment. That helps to either collect date on the storm or push back the storm. In from missions players are awarded a number of in game items including hero characters. Weapons trap schematics and survivors all of which can be leveled up through gained experience to improve their attributes. Also you're working together with people against this common enemy player versus environment cooperative game. In around the same time the epic released fortnight into early access pub g had become a worldwide phenomenon selling millions of copies and drawing strong interest in the battle royale genre so a battle royale game is an online multiplayer video game that blends the survival exploration and scavenging elements of a survival game with kind of the last man standing game. Play so the name. The genre is taken from two thousand japanese film titled battle royale which was based on a novel of the same name and presents a similar theme of a last man standing competition in a shrinking play zone. So you've heard people. My brother plays this one. You've heard people's mentioned before what the heck is pub- g it's an abbreviation for player unknowns battlegrounds so that's an online multiplayer battle royale game and in this game one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves So there's an available safe area. The games map which decreases in size over time and it ends directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters with other players. And the last player or team standing wins the round The game's concept and design was led by brendan green. Who's better known by his online handle player known and he'd previously created mods for other battle rail type games pudgy was the top selling premium game of two thousand seventeen selling thirty million copies worldwide and grossing. About nine hundred million dollars. I have can. I tell you never heard of this game in my whole life. You know you are. You aren't really doing a lot of player games. How it's absolutely right. You know what i. It's funny i feel like there's been a couple of questions and learn a league in maybe the last five seasons or so that like the answer will be some video game or something that we that when we see the answer. We've never heard of this popular selling thing in all of the world and it sold got julian copies and everybody except you plays it. What's the so this is why we're absolutely. Yeah so you know. Epochs saw what pudgy had been doing and they were like maybe we could also do a battery. Yeah so what. Epic did was rapidly develop their own version atop their original fortnight in about two months so by september two thousand seventeen at was about to release this as a second mode from save the world in the paid for earlier access but then later decided to release this as a free game that would be supported with microtransactions. Microtransactions are the business model where users can purchase virtual goods with micro payments and make your transactions are often used in free to play games to provide a revenue source for the developers and there are a staple of the mobile app market so in game currency in fort night is called v books to them. You might see this icon happens sometimes. The you see llamas pop up and fortnight okay. So llamas also known as lama pinatas are the main loop boxes in fortnight and they are also fortnight's primary mascot so the vendor tech store is where players can purchase lama pinatas to break open for rewards in llamas can be produced using view bucks or event specific currency and they contain various helpful. Items like heroes schematics. Weapons and there are also different types of llamas in the game including basic llamas daily llamas and event llamas so For an has a very distinctive aesthetic. It's very cartoony. there's a very distinct color palette. I mean it's it's actually pretty visually pleasing see this distinctive looking lama. You know that that is for

Should Emergency Rooms Be Equipped to Deal with Addiction?
"Visits to hospital emergency departments plummeted. But a new study shows more people than ever are turning up at hospitals seeking help for drug addiction and overdoses. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Mann found many emergency doctors have struggled to respond. Emergency departments are great at treating things like chest pains and asthma attacks After the pandemic hit. A lot of those people stopped showing up at hospitals. They were scared of catching the coronavirus. But Kristin Holland, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says patients experiencing addiction needed help. So desperately They kept coming. The thing that really stood out to me about all drug overdoses and opioid overdoses. Those were the only two for which we saw. An increase. Holden study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, analyzed roughly 190 million emergency room visits. The data shows even people who didn't catch the coronavirus were hit hard by the pandemic. People are indeed experiencing poor mental health, suicidal thoughts, substance use, potentially as a coping mechanism. But there's a problem. Experts say Many emergency departments aren't well staffed or trained to help patients with these kinds of problems. Dr. Mark Rosenberg is president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. Emergency physicians have always been able to treat the overdose, but we did not have tools to treat the addiction. Or the dependency. Rosenberg's organization has worked for years to convince emergency departments to improve addiction care. But he says, reform has come slowly. He points to the fact that most emergency doctors still don't use buprenorphine. It's a drug proven to help people with opioid addiction, avoid relapse. Only one third patients get medications for Opioid use disorder in the emergency department. Experts say regulatory hurdles and stigma around people with drug use disorders have kept many emergency departments from improving their addiction care. Dr Stephen Veal heads the emergency team at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. I think there was a lot of hesitancy because it's not what we've done. It's not what I've trained in, and it seems like somebody else should do it. But I think that what finally pushed emergency physicians out of their comfort zone to do something is just the number of people that we've seen die. After a spate of overdose deaths. Three years ago, Veal changed his department using buprenorphine and also adding a new member to his team. Larry Brooks is a trained addiction counselor who now works with patients in the ER as soon as they're revived the overdose patients that comment to an emergency room They're at their most vulnerable. They're at their lowest point that they've ever experienced. You know, the you know, been dead. Or at least near dead. And brought back to life during the pandemic. Brooks Hospital has seen a new spike in drug cases, Brooke says. It's made a big difference. Having an addiction program in place. This is the best time for us. As health organization and a community as a whole. To make an impact and say, Look, somebody is here. You're not going to get kicked right back out the door and go into withdrawal and have to find something else and then be back here in two hours, But experts say emergency Department addiction programs like this are still rare. CDC researcher Kristin Holland says she hopes data from her study will convince more hospitals to change our takeaway from this is meeting people where they are and if people are coming to the emergency department for these outcomes, that's where we need to meet them. Well, death from covert 19 have dropped from their peak. The CDC has fatal overdoses nationwide keep rising with more than 220 drug day. Brian Mann NPR news

South Africa suspends rollout of Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine
"Whether it needs to change its guidance around the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. This comes after South Africa decided to delay a vaccination campaign that was supposed to start next week. South Africa made that decision after a small study called into question whether the AstraZeneca vaccine works against a variant that is now the dominant strain there. So is this a setback for AstraZeneca? Is it a detour? Is it nothing at all? NPR's Jason Beaubien is here with hopefully some inside on all down. Hey, Jason. Hey, Mary Louise, So I think I have to start by asking the big question. Are these new variants mutating so fast that there rendering the vaccine useless before we can even get it out and everybody's arms. You know, that's what everybody's really worried about. I can tell you definitively that it's way too early to say that right now that this AstraZeneca vaccine isn't useless against the variant that's spreading in Southern Africa. But we are seeing some worrying signs. This was a fairly small study. It was predominantly of young, healthy South Africans, and it found that a reasonable number of people who got vaccinated still ended up getting mild cases of disease like nobody got sick, really, really sick. Nobody died in the study was even designed to test for that. But this was combined with some lab studies in Southern Africa that showed some other worrying signs and there's concern that you know, South Africa. Was supposed to be starting This mass vaccination campaign next week on bones would be the first mass vaccination campaign in all of southern substation in Africa on bit was going to be with the AstraZeneca shot in Salima dill cream. He's AnAnd visor to the South African government. He told the W. H o today that South African decided to put that campaign on hold. We don't want to end up with a situation where we vaccinated million people of two million people with a vaccine that may not be effective in preventing hospitalization and severe disease. So instead, they're going to switch to doing the mass vaccination campaign with Johnson and Johnson's vaccine into a much smaller distribution of the AstraZeneca vaccine that closely monitor that, And if there are higher rates of hospitalizations or cases among the South Africans getting AstraZeneca, then we'll deal with that, at that point Okay, so some important really important qualifiers you've given us this was a very small right study and AstraZeneca, which is not one of the vaccines being given out right now, in the U. S. Correct, So the guidance stands if you can get the vaccine when it's your turn. Get the vaccine. Absolutely in United States. This vaccine has not been been authorized yet. United States although the U. S has purchased some for down the road, okay, but But there are global implications to this. How big a deal is this development outside of South Africa. You know, there's sort of two parts to that one is that this very isn't as much of a problem outside of Southern Africa. You know, at least not yet It might become a some point time. But the expectation is the AstraZeneca vaccine will continue to be effective in other parts of the world. The second part is that this vaccine is an incredibly important part of the global efforts to get people vaccinated. Particularly in low and middle income countries, And if there are cracks with this vaccine and turns out, it doesn't respond to variants very well. Then that could really be problematic. Although why, because couldn't other countries switched to another vaccine, just like it sounds, South Africa is going to try to switch to Johnson and Johnson. That the problem is that right now, there just isn't enough vaccine out there or even in the pipeline, and AstraZeneca is a huge portion of both the current supply and the expected supply that's supposed to be coming in the coming months. On dis is also going to be. People are hoping sort of this vaccine workhorse. It would work well in low and middle income countries. It's cheap. You don't need some special super cold fridge to store it. You know, and it's currently being made in Europe and in India and South Korea. They're manufacturing in Argentina and Brazil in the WH Ose program to distribute vaccine equitably among 190 countries at the moment. It's plan was to depend almost entirely on the AstraZeneca vaccine. That is NPR's Jason Beaubien reporting. Thank you, Jason, You're welcome.

AI Enables Predictability and Better Business
"Call myself a data geek. I before anything else. So i started in the world of data analytics just coming out of college some a longtime ibm Grew up in the world of data and analytics comes naturally. I think to me. I probably think in models I spent a bunch of time building out. A variety of businesses like data privacy. It'd immigration at ibm. I did crossover end. Spend time building out. Api management in the cloud the initial journey that clients took to the cloud and the middleware required behind it and at every step of these areas both on the data during the end the cloud journey there was this constant of security underlying it. And it's always been kind of their But just a few years ago. I jumped head on into a full security role with my current role of leading products for the ibm security brand. I think it really helps having that background and cloud and data coming into this role given what's happening in the security world right now but if you if you asked me to define myself into words ever i'm just gonna call myself a data geek fair enough fair enough but what sort of Transitions and evolutions. Have you seen within. Ibm itself in the time. That you've been there to be honest as a with by data hat on. Which is where i tend to Go to for questions like this and its impact right now on security. There's been on journey of going from reactive to proactive. In every sense of the word rate we in the world of data over the years You did analytics. And you found out behaviors and you found out patterns after something had happened and it's nearly been an evolution over the last couple of decades. Where nearly everything. We do. His gotten to a proactive. Predictive kind of behavioral pattern now. It's not always great but it's greed in a lot of different areas where that predictive ability allows us to do better business it allows us to better client service that allows us to do of a whole host of interactions better. So when i look it clients moving to the cloud and ibm helping them on that journey. So much of it is being better prepared better plan better more structured and more ready for that transformation and a lot of thought. Actually very often comes down to going from being reactive to being proactive and predictive in nature. And i love the fact that it's coming to security. I mean we will always have to do a bunch of defense that's just bought for the course with security but the most predictive we get the more we can understand the environment. We can pinpoint that defense. That is required while being very predictive. So for me. Personally i just as a data. Geek won the world to be more predictive than reactive. And it's a great journey. That i think has gone through. The market's gone through as well and it's not security specific It might have even happened in other areas of the business before security. But i'm really glad securities on that precipice of doing all of that now. And what role does artificial intelligence played in that ability to be. Predictive helps us get there. I know a lot of people will tie to being predictive. I think what does is b. Is its ability to analyze large scale of information in short durations of time and looking for patterns which would be very hard for human beings to do and those patterns allow us to then start building more advanced models any i and beyond that allow us to go down that predictive journey. So the speed and accuracy of finding these batman's needle in the haystack. Kind of things in some cases allow us to be able to get predictive nature. It would be very hard to do without the power of to be on that journey.

Poll shows tightening race for Prop. 22 in California
"Have no less than 12 propositions to weigh in on California is always big on its propositions. So much so that Ko Phi radio reporter Chris and Carlo has made an entire podcast out of them called Proposition, and I spoke this week about one that's got the whole lot of attention. Prop 22. Earlier this year, California passed a law requiring companies that that hire hire gig gig workers workers to to classify classify those those workers workers is is actual actual employees employees eligible eligible for for benefits benefits and and higher higher pay. pay. Uber Uber lift lift insta insta card card doordash. doordash. Those Those are are some some of of the the companies companies were were talking talking about what prop 22 would do is give those companies and exemption so they could still hire people is contract workers and not actual employees with benefits and said income, Carlos says Uber has been pushing a yes vote on this while a lot of uber drivers Have been urging people to vote No on prop 22. The problem is that for these tech companies it made there Model, their business model in many ways, non viable and so they have been fighting that law, and as a matter of fact, they have refused to adhere to that law since it was put in place and they have been in court suing encounter suing the state of California to avoid going in place complying with the law. Now it's important Tio understand that when we talk about prop 22, because Cop 22 is kind of a get out of jail free card for these companies. If prop 22 passes, it creates a kind of side framework for specifically these tech gig Cos Where they lay out what sort of wages they're going to pay. They lay out what sort of benefits they're going to offer, and it essentially exempt them from 85. That's why they're pouring a ton of money into this. I mean, we're talking about $200 Million ballot measure fight, which is the most expensive in California history. So you've got proposition 22. If you vote yes, that would let uber lift insta card and other companies who hire gig workers as workers. Be exempt from a law that says they must be considered employees and not contracted workers. If you are California voter and you vote no on prop 22, That means these companies don't get the exemptions. What do you think that How is the polling looking on how it's going? The polling hasn't been really conclusive. We've seen a lot of attention focused on the yes side because the money's on the outside of that $200 million that I mentioned roughly about 190 million of it has been raised in close to spent by the Yes side.
