Past Insurrectionists Were Not Punished Compared to January 6th Protestors
"There are other people who We're very violent attack the capital building and And they got pardons. And we've been through that before. No such thing happened at the Capitol building this time. There was no explosion. The only shooting was the killing of the protester by Capitol police officer People have not been charged with Weapons violations in the building. Have a group in 1954, Puerto Rican separatists got into the house floor and opened fire with handguns. Five members of the house were wounded in the attack. Wow. And so I thought I'd point all this out. It must be a diversion. It's called history. It's called context. Nobody excuses people who broke into the Capitol building. The problem we have is the lack of equal justice. May I call it equity? So we actually have people who assaulted Police officers burned buildings. Attacked federal law enforcement and a federal courthouse for three months in a row. For which there were almost no consequences. That's the biggest problem. Don't know how many of them were put in solitary confinement for months. Do you? I don't know how many of them were charged with trespassing. Do you?

Co-Founders of Hivemind CRM Discuss The Future of Marketing and Lead Generation
"Anthony you you've been in lead generation for fifteen years How do you see. Have you seen things kind of progressed. And what are the advantages. Now of technology brings you didn't see perhaps fifteen years ago. I think now more than anything is i mean. Think generation in marketing has been the same right whether that's on facebook or google. Any of the the big ones continues to be the same. The cost is going up as a market becomes more saturated so This thing in five or ten years. It's going to be more competitive. Ads are going to be more expensive to run a group on facebook right so with that being said we had to think of a way so that you know in twenty years maybe your marketing costs might not be might be efficient to run these types of ads anymore. How can we make something like this. Eternal with. i've heard these gurus right on these clubhouse in these other types of apps where they get on they'll say hey you know. My marketing budget is a hundred thousand dollars a month or two hundred thousand dollars a month for marketing for them to be able to sustain the real estate company with a hive. Mind of the bigger. Your team gets right because you affiliate program where you add people. Crm and we pay you monthly for it so the big team that you get a and you teach them to do exactly what we're doing and we can teach them as well. Your marketing costs actually go down day by day. So right now i mean. I'm about ready to turn all of my marketing efforts for my own personal self. Just run ads for my team members. Now so not only is my marketing cost plummeting. It's going down to zero. So now i'll be doing jamie deals. Fifty fifty deals with more and more people as time goes on so the more deals that i'm doing. A marketing costs are not going up. They've actually flatlined two zero. So that's kind of where we're headed From where we were to where we're headed now. So without the hive mind just more expensive to do marketing.
Decision-Making in COVID Family Life with Professor Emily Oster
"Was part period of time when everything was very very black and white and it felt like even discussing thinking about risks and actually calculating in thinking about why we're making different decisions was almost like frowned upon so i felt like your newsletter was one of the first places where i was like. Actually let's do some math and think about how are decisions in this context which is wildly different but headache compare to decisions. We've made at other times. Could you talk a little bit more about that. Visiting grandparents posed in kind of the thought process that went through gauging risk. And how you explain risk to people and maybe a little bit about the response. Sure so at that time. I think this was kind of we. Were coming out of these first stage of like everybody is like down. Everyone's in their house and starting to ask these questions about okay my kids daycare's reopening or you know now it's can. I see my parents in two months three months. Like can i see them or they're safe ways to do that big. You're exactly right that people had initially was sort of like there's totally black and white like don't do anything. Don't leave your. Don't leave your house but there became a point. Where at least people started thinking about not doing that and i think a lot of people felt very trapped in the question of how to think about this in the new world and so kind of what i tried to do was both give people a little data and give them a framework to think about that which started with the idea of just being very explicit. About what the question was that they were asking and in a sense of. Oh that is really obvious. I think that it was the piece that people it was a piece that was missing for a lot of people so telling people look what you wanna do is ask you know. Should i see my parents or not. But should i see my parents now or in two weeks or now or in six months or now or not until the vaccine. And i think that kind of idea that you really need to think about what. The alternatives are the concrete alternatives are. I think was already somewhat helpful because sometimes people say well you know what like. I'm actually it's not like i'm not willing to wait until there's a vaccine like i cannot imagine doing that and so then it totally changes how. I'm going to think about this choice. When i know no matter when i see them there's going to be some risk and so the question is then. How do we mitigate the rest counter we evaluate the size of the risks and then he spent a lot of time talking to people about. Okay what exactly. Can you do to make these risks smaller. What's the value of testing. What's the value of quarantine. How do we think about those. And then how big are they relative to some other risks that you undertake every day

Amazon Alexa Gets New Voices, Including Actors Melissa Mccarthy and Samuel L. Jackson
"This month. Alexa is going to sound a little bit. Different on july fifteenth the tech giant rolled out an update to its digital voice assistant to include a second voice option. As you know amazon's assistant typically has like a feminine sounding voice with this update. You can change that to a more masculine voice setting this all up his quite simple. You just say the assistant's name followed by quote. Change your voice and quote but that's not all there's an additional wake word you can use in place of alexa. That new word is ziggy Basically it works the same way instead of saying the primary name of amazon's digital assistant You can say ziggy instead. If you're a fan of gigi and you've never tried to swap out the wake word and you kind of want to try it out. Anyway you have some other choices to You can use amazon. You can use echo or you can use computer And the way to do this is really simple. Just like with the change. Your voice option. You can make a query to the assistant and say change the wake word to whatever you want Another way to do this too is open up the app for the voice assistant go to the menu. Select your settings than device settings. Then you go to the device that you want to update with this new wake word and then you choose the when you want and that's it now if you don't want either of these options for voices you can actually add a little bit of celebrity flare After introducing an option awhile. Back to add actor. Samuel jackson's voice to queries amazon is much similar offerings featuring actress melissa mccarthy an nba legend shaquille. O'neal so the way it works is you kind of ask them directly as you would amazon's digital assistance. You might say hey shack. Tell me about the weather. Hey samuel Tell me about the news today.

Are Amazon Rumors Behind Bitcoins Biggest Surge in Months?
"Bitcoin had an absolutely ripping weekend moving from the thirty two thousand. We saw entering the weekend all the way up to thirty nine thousand as i record. It's off just a little from that at around. Thirty eight thousand five hundred or so but still up about twelve percent in the last twenty four hours basically everything. Besides bitcoin is up as well. So the question of today's show is of course what's behind the surge now usually price action. I don't think would be worth an entire show. However in today's context i think it is for a couple reasons. I is that it actually reveals at least says a lot about some of the ways that different forces interact with one another to create price action and crypto markets that i think is a good reminder especially as we get locked into one narrative explanation or another. The second reason is that it's been kind of bleak for a little while so let us enjoy our one day of face ripping volatility the upside discussion. Okay all right so four possible answers. I've seen on crypto twitter about why bitcoin is having its biggest surge in a couple of months. The four possible answers. I've seen are an amazon by rumor.

"a month later" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Guess michael. I know that's part of my frustration. Coming out no one. I said that. But i know what i did and did not do and i know that i did not leak and i looked at the fact that adam schiff and i were the only two members involved in this that a minor child of a staffer was involved in this. And you have to attorney. General's saying that they did not know about it far and sessions and so to me if you are surveilling members of congress who are critics of the president and the attorney. General is is not being briefed on it at one. That should be fireable a to. I don't really buy that. They weren't briefed on it. And so it makes me wonder. Why didn't anybody say look. This is this is wrong. This is not what we do and again i. I'm saying this from the perspective of somebody. Who knows i was innocent. I didn't do anything wrong. I i can't see any probable cause to go into my records and so if you are going into my records i think you're doing it unlawfully. And when you're doing that against the vocal critic of the president. I think there should be consequences. Congressman two quick follow ups on this one. You said that attorney general merrick garland called you about this said he. He didn't know about it. What else did he say did he. Express dismay was e surprised concerned. What did he tell you. It was very kind. He he called it actually apologize that he had not called me. You know a day or two earlier. He'd just been so overwhelmed. Landing on the job but he told me he did not know about this case until it broke in the news and that he was seeking to learn more about it and again i. I was very clear with them. I did not want to direct him in any way as to what to do or what i thought he should do. Because that would be just as wrong. I just wanted to make sure that he understood the concerns that someone who has criticized the president would have if their records are being when again. They know that there was no reason for that to happen. You told them that you hope that there would be a inspector general investigation as it turns out the inspector general. The justice department's independent watchdog. Michael horowitz announced that he is reviewing this episode. They reached out to you. Have you been questioned in this probe at all yet. Do you know anything about what they're specifically what they're looking at We'll tell us about the. I g investigation. No they have not again. I just want to make it clear that. I don't know why my records or mr shifts records were probed as somebody who knows that they did not leak. It's highly suspicious. But i'm willing to at least wait to see what. The investigation concludes But to me it. It is worthy of investigating considering. How boko mr schiff and i were of the prior administration and the prior attorneys-general but just to be clear. Is it your position that there are no circumstances under which of the justice department should subpoena the email and phone records of members of congress. Just the opposite i. I don't think i'm above the law more than anyone else is above the lot. My position is knowing that. I did not leak. I'm very curious as to how they would justify going in to my records. So that's what concerns me and again. I think you have to be extra careful when you're going into the records of lawmakers who've been critical of the president that doesn't make you immune but that certainly i think means that the attorney general you know should consider the damage you can do to institutions critics. Feel like the punishment for speaking out is that you're gonna have your records gone because i would want. I assume you would want the the car justice department to subpoena if they have grounds the records of republican members of congress who might have had interactions with some of the organizers participates in participants in january six if they have probable cost yes but not just because their opponents of the press and again. I'm saying this from the perspective of someone who knows. I did not leak so it makes it very much concerns me that my records were looked at When there's not a more likely than not scenario where i would have leaked. So i wanna take us back if i can't the first impeachment now so one of the criticisms especially that was raised by the republicans during that first impeachment was that it was baked in advance. Basically that the democrats had intended to impeach donald trump. From the minute. He was sworn into office that you were laying in wait for any sort of minor error that he might commit. That could justify impeachment thinking about that criticism. I'm wondering if the republicans take congress back in two thousand twenty two. Do you anticipate that. They will impeach joe biden. No we impeach. I can't predict what they will do. But i know that speaker pelosi laid this out in. The book was very careful to make sure that we had consensus. Among the congress. There was a call for impeachment. The second donald trump was elected from some of my colleagues in speaker. Pelosi was very careful to make sure that we only would do so if we had evidence reason to do so. Do you think that the current leadership of the republican party has that same sense of restraint that nancy pelosi did as you say in two thousand seventeen and no. I don't think kevin mccarthy has any core set of principles or integrity. That would restrain him. But i was in. I put it on the book. I was one of the i was a presidential candidate. As much of this conduct was coming out. And i was one of the last presidential candidates to call or donald trump's impeachment because again as a former prosecutor i wanted to apply the rigors of evidentiary law to this case to make sure that we actually did have the goods. If we're gonna move forward and the impeachment of donald trump won foreshadowed. What was going to come. Which was in impeachment. One he was trying to rig the election before it happened by putting dirt on his opponent and impeachment to he wasn't willing to accept the outcome of the election and was used willing to use violence instead of you know bribery to determine the outcome it and so I don't regret at all that. We impeach him if anything. I regret that we didn't do more oversight of donald trump and others. I regret that. We didn't teach bill bar and i was calling for that if you recall throughout the bar days that We should we should impeach bar before we impeach trump for what he had done with the muller report and the lies that he told the congress around the report. But don't you think given the the fervor of the republican base arguing for you know Focusing for example on on one hundred biden's business dealings and whether or not joe biden knew about them the fact that the many republicans have already filed articles of impeachment against joe biden. And what you say is kind of a lack of restraint on the part of kevin mccarthy. Don't you believe that. There's a significant chance in twenty twenty three if the republicans take over control of the house that they will begin legitimately impeachment proceedings against joe biden. Oh yes there's there's serious chance based on the dialogue and statements..

"I got his phone number. I texted him. i called him. He picked up and then hung up and then he called me back. And you know. I thought okay here. We go What what are you gonna tell me. Mark and there was silence on the other end. So i don't know if it was a missile or trying to see who i was But then we got word from his lawyer. After i had reached out a number of times that he would not honor a subpoena. He would fight us in the courts and it just felt like that was going to define any witness. Oh no reason to expect. He's going to do anything differ committee comes from. But let me ask you something else as you know. The merrick garland justice department. Recently filed in court saying it was going to represent donald trump in a defamation lawsuit brought by jean carole a woman who says donald trump raped her many years ago and then defamed her when she went public with that. There's been a lot of speculation that the same logic will hold to your lawsuit that the garland justice department will basically intervene to block your lawsuit against the former president saying he was acting as a chief executive of the united states and is therefore immune from civil suit. How concerned are you that the garland justice department is going to be your nemesis in this lawsuit. And what do you make of them representing trump in the defamation case brought by jean cow. I think it's wrong. In the carroll case and if they were to represent donald trump or mo brooks or anyone else in my case i think they might as well just say that we would represent any president in any case that they're soon whether it's a homicide case or whether it's the argument would be that. The president was acting as part of his official duties as pressure. And the i understand the argument. Michael guy i submit that when you hold a rally or your presidential campaign and you say you have to fight like hell and you don't have a country anymore and you tell the mob that you're going to go with them. The bob goes. You are so far outside the boundaries of your official duties. As i said this was done completely on the campaign. He was sending. You know the emails that invited the mob on the campaign side. So i think this is well outside the bounds of being president in eugene carroll case again just because he was at an official press conference he was being asked about his personal private pre-presidential presidential conduct. He can just decline to answer the question. And say i'll talk to you about that. It's not appropriate here but instead he smeared a sexual assault victim. I think once he does that you know key. His personal private conduct of predominates any privileges that he should have as president so i. I hope the department doesn't do that. There has to be boundaries. For what's an official and what's not protected. Type ask you something else. About the justice department you were as amply reported Recently informed that the justice department under bill barr had gotten your phone phone records and e mail records as part of a leak investigation. You're quite outraged about that. But there's very little we know at this point about what was going on inside the justice department. What these leak investigations were who approve them. Where they targeting you or were they targeting others and then you're communications got swept up in the targeting of others. I know you've asked for information from the garland justice department about this. What do you now understand the answers to those questions. What were the leak investigations. Who approve them. And who was being targeted michael. You remember this era because you were a dog reporter trying to get to the bottom of what was going on with russia. I wanted affirmatively. Say i did not have not incense will not leak classified information as so. I never did that. i understand. It's reporter's job to get to the bottom of the. But i did not do that In what concerns me. Is that the two people whose communications were sought and received or myself. And mr schiff. I think were the most vocal critics of the president at the time. Which is why it's important. That attorney general garland has an inspector general investigation and that the judiciary committee also conduct no supplemental investigation. The attorney general assured me. He called me a told me it was the first i had heard of it in the he was going to get to the bottom of it himself so i don't have many answers right now but it's hard for me to accept any other reporting that i've seen out there that we would just collaterally a part of a leak investigation. That involved a staffer win again. The two people whose records were obtained as far as we know where the most vocal critics that just to me. But you don't know what they were invest. No i don't write you called on just one question in this after this came out. You said anybody involved in this at the justice department should be fired now. You know how these things work there were career prosecutors who filed these subpoenas went into court to defend them argued that they should be kept under a gag order. They may have been operating under strict instructions from bill bar and do really want to do it but they were forced to do it or they may have thought they were legitimately doing an investigation under justice department guidelines to pursue a leak. Was it really appropriate to say absent. You having answers to any of these questions. That career people civil servants at the justice department should be fired. When you don't even really know who is involved in. What exactly they.

"But how do we make sure it does not happen again in. Also it was frustrating. Michael during the impeachment trial we had the pressure coming down on us of a senate that understandably had to confirm joe biden's cabinet and his appointees and so there were constraints on us in that regard. There was the recognition that if donald trump in others refuse to testify at the senate trial we would spend years in court. Litigating those subpoenas in. I'm liberated from that in my lawsuit. I don't have those time constraints and time pressure and really in my pursuit of accountability. I'm not limited by that to get the truth by the way. What is the judgment that you're asking for here. I mean are you asking for like a sort of a one dollar judgement. Just symbolically make the point that this is about accountability. Or are you asking for some other kind of remedy. But we're not that state yet. Certainly we alleged the different torts of intentional infliction of emotional distress as well as impeding me from doing my duty and certainly that is one of the prayers for relief as they call them. There could be an injunction. There could be a financial penalty. It's certainly for me is mostly about accountability. And i'll let our loyal our legal team and the judges sort out where that ends up but right now it's really primarily about accountability and if you're tracking where are we right now. Each side is responding to the other side's filings around the motion to dismiss and that seems to be one of the biggest hurdles that we have to clear is to survive. They're motion to dismiss. And then you would go into the discovery process which is essentially you know us seeking evidence in the case seeking depositions from the parties to understand their complete ole. Let me just follow up. Because he's you said something interesting and it's also mentioned in your in your book. Which is the the incredible difficulty that congress has an institution has in getting discovery and in getting information. And your book. You mentioned an incident where a news organization filing a foia request got better access to data than congress. Did you just mentioned in your lawsuit. You're doing it because as as an individual congressperson just as an individual suing you have a better chance of discovery than congress does. I mean it really points out that congress's almost you know enfeebled as an independent investigative organization or entity nowadays is there. Is that a first of all. Do you concur with that kind of assessment of congress's role and is congress doing anything to change. That state reforms are needed. An atom shifts protect our democracy. Act that would essentially create a fast track. Four congressional subpoenas so you cannot don mcgann congress where you know in the spring of two thousand nineteen. The miller report comes out. Judiciary committee seized on mcgann as the central figure. Call him in to testify and it was just about a month ago that we actually were able to get him when all the way up to the supreme court before we were able to negotiate with the department of justice around his testimony. And and that's just wrong that you know when you have abuses of power that are alleged and people are able to just run out the clock. That congress isn't able to conduct its oversight authority that so yes that reform i think is needed also. No i did not file my lawsuit. Because i couldn't get we couldn't get information in the senate under saying because i'm seeking accountability. A benefit collateral benefit of. That is that i believe we will have better than congress did. In seeking discovery. Victoria was asking the kind of process question. About how you get the information but tell us about the information the evidence that you are seeking both in your own lawsuit and having been deeply involved in the impeachment investigation and then having been one of the managers in the senate trial. What is the key evidence. The key information that you're seeking that the american people still need to know about january sixth so sparingly there are a lot of gaps around what was donald trump doing the day of the attack it was. We saw the footage of the insurrection. Tailgate where they're all in the tent watching the footage of the mob moving from the ellipse up to the capital. But you know what was. Donald trump being told by national security and law enforcement officials. What decision points was he. Making regarding sending a what was he told in of course in the days before you know as these questions about should the national guard be dispatched foot limitation. Should they have had and then of course in the weeks before because we know for many many weeks. The trump campaign spent fifty million dollars on. Stop the steel. you know email and digital ads. How much direction was given by donald trump. Because he sent that to am tweets in mid december saying january. Six will be wild. And then there was just this barrage of tweets afterward. So what foreknowledge. Did he have about. Who was going to be there in. Why did he believe it was going to be so wild so we might think that you know that the january six committee that was just created would be a key player in figuring these sort of things out. But at as you've just noted congress's pretty toothless in terms of its ability to pursue subpoenas to be mcgann and if the shift and so. How much can we really expect. This january six committee to be able to uncover given how how handcuffed congresses. At getting information. I will say that they will be a little less tam cuff because now they will be subpoenaing. People who are no longer in office and so some of the protections they had don't exist any further but that doesn't mean they won't let a gate them and it will still take time. Because no i don't think anyone expects donald trump is just gonna walk in on his own accord. I don't think anyone expects that. I pointed out mark short in the book. You know we had a good lead. That marked short wanted to talk. He was mike pence at the capitol that day in sources. Were telling me and others that if you can get short end once you can call witnesses. He would be a good witness to give penn state of mind. Donald.

I don't like getting canceled like any of that bucket like who you know what really confuses me about Twitter page. It's not. All right, what confuses me is not that people post shit on Twitter incessantly, it's not that people post. Should they shouldn't should post on Twitter or confuses me about Twitter is that millions or possibly billions of people regularly log in to see what these people have to say about 30 characters or less. Yeah. Like I've never understood the who the fuck wants to do that apparently everybody in America. Yeah. Okay. I mean there's some people that are there's I mean, it's just weird to me cuz there's like people that are good deals on Twitter, but they're not really big deals if you know what I mean, like they're big on Twitter like like like I am Who am I thinking of?

How do you get Twitter famous between stuff that that people find find to be the truth or there or someone in the middle of their true thoughts and they can relate to it somehow.

"Weeks later after Jackie has gotten the okay to go back to her job as a nurse. I give her a call. I can mostly fit into my scrubs. My work scripts. Jackie says she's done a lot of thinking about pre ECLAMPSIA and that her doctors say she likely got it from the baby. She agreed to carry and give birth to. She was always interested in the medical adventure that service he would take her on and now she's read a pile of studies about how the father's genes may be a factor in pre ECLAMPSIA. And they used a term that I don't like at all called the dangerous father effect that puts all of the blame on a person who has no control. Several people have asked me. If you had to do this over again. Would you do it? And so my answer is yes and no. If I had known that I would have been a high risk for complications. I would not do it again. She says she'd risk her health for her family. Not for a stranger but since she did take that risk for Jesse something has changed between them Jesse and her baby had to stay in Oregon for weeks longer than she'd planned because it took that long to get her son is American passport and do all the paperwork necessary to go to China. She and her mother rented an apartment and with Jackie pumping breast milk everyday. Jesse came regularly to see her. Pick it up. Jackie got to hold the baby a lot more than the two hours that was in the contract more than she even wanted to. She didn't want to intrude. I usually only hold him for. Maybe like two to five minutes at a time in the night given back to Jesse it was actually the moments with Jesse and her mom that Jackie says she savored. Most Jesse's mother kept telling Jackie she's pretty whence at the hospital. She started playing with Jackie's hair. And it was Jesse who beckoned. Jackie into a photo with her mom and the baby. She called Jackie something in Chinese which the medical interpreter translated as the most important person. Justice translation is security guard. Just as dad thinks it's more like Guardian Angel and the Dictionary Translation is benefactor. She wants me to come to China and visit her family. She does really does. Yeah so I'M GONNA try to go within a year. I really wasn't expecting that. I know I know the way she raises. It is welcome to China when we use the chat APP. That's how it translates. Welcome to China. Hey It's Gregory back in the present day. That is where we left things when this story first aired in two thousand. Seventeen Jackie feeling welcomed into this new family. She couldn't wait to visit China of course before she could even think of visiting Jesse. She just wanted to go back home. Get her life back. And that's when she realized she couldn't do anything that she used to do she couldn't exercise she couldn't drive. The elevated blood pressure would get so severe that sometimes I would see flashing reading green lights the Pre ECLAMPSIA. It hadn't gone away when the baby was born and for me stress was also a trigger so it was really difficult to explain so my then sixty seven year old. You have to have good behavior. He did not get that he was not on board with that so my husband would have to like take him out to the park and things so that was kind of sad. I missed out on some time playing with him to even in these times when she had to kind of isolate herself from her own family. She did not regret her decision to help. Jesse have a family for own and after a month she could resume her old life again and actually so much more. So it's like yeah I'm alive I'M GONNA go out and do healthy stuff and get fit inspired by all of the Chinese dramas. She'd watch during the surrogacy to help the baby learn his native tongue. Jackie signed up for martial arts classes. She takes them with her son. And with the money from the surrogacy she was able to take time off work and complete her masters degree. Start a new job as a home health nurse after months of a complicated pregnancy and then a confining diagnosis. She suddenly had more resources and more clarity to pursue the life she wanted. Meanwhile in China Eagle and Jesse's life looked very different. Our producer Jess Jiang is interpreted Milton model ship before I became a Mom. I really wanted to become a mother and now that I've become one it's happy but let's just. There's this phrase. The ground is covered with chicken feathers small. It's an expression for having a thousand mundane tasks eating up your day crowding out all your plans and expression that would speak to any new parent but for Jesse took on this whole other meaning because their city was now on lockdown even the most ordinary tasks were extra complicated and she and her two and a half year old when stuck inside she could see it wearing him down she potty trained him but he starts to regress go eagles And one morning. He wet himself. That is those four or five time. there are times when. I'm really dispirited. In the middle of all this Jesse's husband was diagnosed with cancer and as Jesse found her own joy in short supply. It was her toddler. Muffin comforting her. When I'm satis hell holds me and say no way. Mommy I love you. She found herself thinking about her friend in Seattle Her Guardian Angel. Her benefactor her security guard who had given her this child. Jackie has been on Monday center message and I still haven't heard anything back from her and I'm starting to get worried with and then she now. I have to be honest. We don't a lot.

"Tinos Jewish. Shell shoe show. She needed when Jesse gets the message in China. She says she feels like ice. Water was thrown at her heart.

Jesse told me her head any. I camp out in the hospital waiting room. Hey Marianne Jackie's water is broken and nine thirty am now. Jackie is the one who has to make all kinds of decisions like should she take. Pain medication the relief will help. Keep your blood pressure down but it will be a risk to the.

New Nurse on duty. She just told me that. Jackie is three centimeters dilated But she's going to get up really soon at just after PM. I received the message. I've been waiting for. I just got word from Jess who just got word from Jesse. Who's in the airport and San Francisco? That the baby has been born a Beautiful Jackie's husband videotapes. The babies I cry.

Changing planes in San Francisco receives a photo of her baby from Jacky's husband but when she asks how he is. There's no response. She says her heart is going up and down. Nessie knee ended. She's supposed to jump. Jackie stays in her hospital bed exhausted and with her. Blood pressure's still dangerously high Jesse and her mom finally arrive in Portland. They haven't slept in thirty. Six hours and gladly accept. Justice offered to drive the two hours on dark winding road to the hospital. Jesse's phone keeps buzzing with messages from friends in China congratulating. Her her husband told them she's given birth to a baby boy in the United States. Jesse still hasn't met her baby still doesn't even know how is and when they parked the car at the hospital. She runs through the parking lot. Her mom just hurrying to keep up. They all arrive at Labor and delivery. I show them the way past the front desk to wear. Jackie is the nurse comes out here and I just drew to the door in the left and the nurse. She gestures to the door on the right. And the baby's so Jackie on the left baby on the right. There are moments following journey like this one that get imprinted on your memory and for me. This was one Jesse has traveled so far and has waited so long to see this baby. The baby who has tubes in his nose to help him breathe behind the door on the right and she chooses the door on the left mother. Jackie thank you thank you. Have you seen a baby? Let's go see the baby. Just a call the nurse to get out of bed. He's beautiful he's like you. Nurse comes and helps Jackie into a wheelchair. Little Swallow Jesse looks at her. Iv and her blood pressure monitor pressure when thirty nine. So it's good. We all crowded into the little room across the hall. Jesse is pushing the IV. Jesse meets her baby for the first time he's lying on his back on a little stand knees laid out either side wearing tiny diaper and warming under a heat lamp. He's got a tube blowing air into his nose and monitors taped over his lungs and another on his wrist. And he's sleeping. Jesse everyone just stands frozen for doing really good fatal holiday. A medical interpreter will come in the morning but for now so late at night. Hour Jess Helps Jesse. Understand how different this time is from the last time. She had a beach. Hamilton Joma are the lungs completely formed. They looked good on x Ray after Jesse gets through her questions. The nurse eases the baby into her arms and for the first time he opens his eyes and looks right up at her Jesse's mother stands behind her chair hands on her shoulders on Chichi stink. This is the result of your mutual work and mutual success. How do I say thank you? Cs secure both. Jackie and Jesse. Stay in the hospital for the next few days.

Picks up the package looks curiously and she pops it in her car to use this washer. I I'd be happy to Jesse has got her own shopping. List like organic forms show you. She doesn't trust the formula in China. Do you want me to pump milk. She'll tell us later for her. This visit wasn't about becoming friends with Jackie. We can now pay. She's here to meet her and thank her and make sure everything is okay. But by the time they get back to Jackie's hundred year old house on a hill Elliott. Her six year old is holding his Chinese guests hand. Tugging her into the house just two ferrets or black and white cat. Little Dog Muffin. L. A. Kiss. She really likes you and I really like despite coming from so far away. Jesse looks weirdly just right in small town. Oregon just got long dark hair tinted red at the end. She wears a plaid flannel and she ditches her makeup after one night. She and Jackie are into art. Jesse loves the HALF DOZEN ELECTRIC GUITARS that line. The walls of the room she staying. She's saying Your House fulfil her imagination. Of what American homes look late copying inch big skype and coastal areas and this has also has music a musical. We're we're starting to form a bond that I hope will continue for our lifetime that there are a lot of Chinese women coming to the US to have babies inflammation enough that immigration officials are on the lookout Jesse. She couldn't even get a visa her first time around when she applied to come to. California for IBM for in vitro fertilization. She says the guy at the consulate rejected her visa on the spot. No she changing gun jude where she remembers. It accused her. You're trying to get an American passport. He told her trying to have an American baby. It's just don't make the Obama. Which will it's a real thing among wealthy Chinese couples now there was even a super popular romantic comedy in China. Come to Seattle all about a Chinese woman. Sleepless to spend five months in a secret maternities love pregnant Chinese women which is also a real job in a dope. Tom Does Kalu formations. Jesse's story is different. She's using a surrogate not giving birth herself but she says she does know a lot of Chinese couples considering delivering their babies in the US so she knew what she had to do to get a visa. She had to prove that she wasn't trying to have a so-called anchor-baby that she didn't want to immigrate to the US she came back to the consulate estimates. She could carrying a clear plastic bag. Inside was the D. to her cosmopolitan apartment and proof that she owns a Mercedes Benz. She showed them her husband's earnings as a futures trader and proof of her own stable government job and she got the visa. Jesse says the people she knows. Who Want American passports for their babies? It's not so much that they want to immigrate to the US or even go to American universities. It's also because it gives them advantages in China was how now. Dalyell Jen Jess Jiang. Our producer asked Jesse a lot of questions about this. I was really curious about this level while caught onto hobby and Jesse told me there. Are these elite universities in China and students have to take these tough entrance exams to get into them? They're far more important and far harder than the sat's kids study for them for years but the top tier universities in China. They want more foreign students who could raise the profile of the school so those schools. They actually lowered the standards for those students. Boy Kuby Toby. Toby fishing and foreign students in this case means Chinese kids with Chinese parents whose only foreignness is where they were born. Jesse's baby will get an American passport to because he'll be born to a surrogate on American soil and she says she'll be glad to have it but it's not the reason she's spending several hundred thousand dollars on doctors and lawyers and lodging and Jackie here in the US paying a surrogate isn't legal in China. But she could have done it in say Ukraine for half the price so why Oregon. When I asked Jesse she says the medical technology of course but also the clear loss in Oregon and other states that allows her to see their protections for the mom. Jackie and Jesse negotiated a long legal contract. It says Jackie cannot change your mind after the birth and keep the baby it says if the parents want her to abort because of genetic disease she will she agreed to never try to contact the child and she asked Jesse for things to like she asked to spend at least two hours with Jesse and the baby after he's born two hours. What Jackie most wants is not written in the contract. It's that friendship back connection. She's hoping for how are you? This is in another alliot. The next day we all gather in Jackie's living room with professional interpreted Jesse can tell us why she turned to surrogacy in the first place. She grabs a pillow off the couch and hugs. It against her belly. Starts Younger Hotel? How you'll help? She tells about meeting her husband away on fly about be good to her forever. Nice trio all my errands disapproval and their secret.

Chinese herbs flushing out her for Lopion tubes artificial insemination until finally it. Don't cal pees on a stick it off and sees yes you are pregnant? She and her husband by a crib.

"Thirty day trial I've been using the Apple Watch series five since just after its introduction back in September I posted my initial review complete with all the little technical details about all the new stuff worked I'm Rene Ritchie and this Apple Watch series five review one month later every year I swear I'm going to buy the Aluminum Apple Watch it's sleek it's slim it does everything Apple Watch can do for a lot less money than any other apple watch finish can do it then. Apples materials team hits me was something completely new in that first year with the series zero it was stainless steel with a black diamond like carbon coating so strong that anytime I thought some other metal it was series one it was white ceramic it looks shockingly bright like the original ipod bright but felt like something from a high end watch you watch company which is athlete what apple had rapidly become year three and series three was gray ceramic I didn't like the look anywhere nearly as much as the white because it wasn't anywhere nearly as addict less like stormtrooper more like storm clouds but it was new and such a sucker for New Year four and series four was gold steel I wasn't with series five I was serious aluminum sticking with aluminum even though apple brought back the white ceramic and it looked every bit as imperial as ever they also went and added something new again titanium both brushed and DLC block and like I said I am such a sucker for new I had the space black it first but ended up exchanging it for the brushed metal because I decided I wanted titanium to look like titanium like metal like eight hundred endo skeleton they're both distinctive though and neither really resembles their stainless steel counterparts it's way lower key than the Polish stainless steel almost closer to the silver aluminum so certainly not for their showy offy more for the confident chill same with the space black it's not the same batmobile black stainless steel closer to the Space Grey Aluminum Dan.

I didn't eat breakfast or lunch today and i'm just gonna make me a smoothie for dinner and and then she comes home from work and she's got like a giant taco bell cup. So would you do for lunch today all right. I guess that's fair. It's it's tough but you know she's not doing enough spider and i and i told him no. I never want. I don't want her to have to change. They live mm-hmm and that's been the hard part is just getting that mentally. I just overcoming the temptation and just using other people as my face isla. Hello all right. We got. We got to get going. Do you have a plan going forward wednesday september first right now while we're recording this craig. How about this them. Let's no no no no hear me out here danny. Let's not let's not give them when the next episode again. It'd be okay because it could come soon. What's the goal. You're you're one seventy seven right now. I'm one seventy seven. I want to i think when when i hit one when i hit under one sixty one seventy story okay i wanna i wanna record so let's say once your your goals not one seventy one sixty i keep saying i keep giving you once youtube. It's fine three seventy three seven so your goal six three sixty nine three sixty nine point nine eight three six nine point zero but three sixty nine point nine that counts you are under your under three seventy. That's that's your motivation. That's what you've got a picture you need to you. You got to want to see that six because that's when it really changes your so sick asean the seven that you can't you can't wait to see sitting there and then when you when you get to the six it's like just imagine there's a five you know. You're just gonna keep chipping away at that point. That's so it's either going to our next. Episode will either be the weekend that i've hit three sixty nine or or this is the liability so did we ever did know or it's a for or it's the first weekend of october. I think she thinks i do i think you do we talked about it. When you're a little bit bigger you can if you really dedicate. You could burn that you could burn that weight off by next weekend. Yeah we might be putting another episode next weekend. It might be a shorter one. If that's the case well we might have to do it for like fifteen minute updates here and there i'd i'd read showdown for that so if we go to hope that i lose the weight i think you will because they love the content any. I think you're going to be there. I think i think you'll i think i think we'll be hearing from you very soon before. We go to finish thirteen reasons why you know we're on. I think i think we i think you asked me about it yesterday right. I am on episode seven or eight. We didn't get to watch one. Last night surfaced too tired so we didn't so i'm still in the same place where i was without spoilers. <hes> did you finish it or you still where you were because you were way behind. I'm done jesus you guys bird through those i enjoy it. I like it. I have my theories. I don't wanna talk about potentially be giving away <hes> but i like like an i enjoy the season. I thought that the concept would grow old by now and it's definitely over the top and ridiculous because you're like you know. Kids are going through this much in high my schooling. This is the worst fucking ice cool. These kids all have the wars lives. Everybody's a rapist. Everybody's got guns. Everybody's doing drugs like what the fuck is. Is this place. It is ridiculous so that sets you start totaling in all up but i'm all i'm all for it. I like it and i really do hope. They do. Another season and i really do want to see them. Focus assan claiming craziest person without spoilers at all the ending is great. Okay good. I'm gonna say because it has a lot of potential to let you down to so that's good to hear your innings great. There is going to be another season confirmed and it'll it'll be the final season. I'm excited for the next season based on the ending okay and but you know what i'm a little i'm a little worried because and this season in in my opinion it's hard to push against the first season but this is by far better than the second season all sudden done yeah. The problem with the second season was that it was almost it was too much rehashing the first season. They just took it every everybody's story and expanded on it like oh yeah. You knew how this person did that. But did you know they also fucked here and it's like i did. You know that that's my concern about the fort's yeah but this one is new. Stop everything every episode there in bailing you know an event happened here but you're like they keep reverend saying you know the the homecoming game coming and you're like what happened and it's slowly little pieces and you know this happened. It slowly little pieces. It's a new story so that's why it's so much better than the second season yeah and then one last thing. I'll say you tyler yeah because of him. I've cried more than once watching a show. He's good he he he <hes> he's great casting because he looks that part. I told my wife and i'm like he looks like a kid that would want to shoot up the fucking school he does. He told anyone about his scenario where you are no no get ready. Get ready to cry i. I you know it's coming but yeah i'd now i. I say spoiling anything. I want to say where we're at but then that will spoil for anybody that has gotten to that party either so i can't even tell you i can explain to you on air where i'm at but here's what we're going to say to get ready because at the end of the next accountability shot we're gonna. We're gonna go a little deep don this. We're gonna have to recap some some thirteen reasons. Why yeah there will be some spoilers k. danny anything else before we go no just. Did you still want me to play that one song that he said you really really love from your childhood. Yeah in fact this this song my dad would sing this to me every night before bed and says a special place in my heart so she the music uh-huh.
