Fox News' Adam Klotz Assaulted by Teens in NYC

"Here in New York, they're closing the ATMs at midnight because of all the crime that's taking place in the inside the ATMs. And the vestibules of banks, the Fox News weather guy, Adam clots, he got beaten with an inch of his life on the subway the other night, trying to defend an elderly man who was being attacked by 7 or 8 punks. And you know what happened after they beat the weather man? Adam clots? They grabbed a couple of these little, these little vermin? And they were kids. They were teenagers. You know what the cops did? Called the parents and sent him home. You can't arrest a child like that. He's just a poor child of a lack of privilege. He doesn't have white privilege to protect him. We're going to send him home to mommy and daddy. So you can beat the snot out of a TV personality. And you're going to go home. You're not going to go to jail for that. No, we're going to send him home.

"Public filings that we've done, including our financials. We recently filed Q three 2022. And that was a record quarter for us in terms of top line revenue and bottom line EBITDA. And so is the quarter before that. So they can see that this business is pretty insulated with Celsius with three eras of Terra Luna with FTX, Voyager, all of these events happening that people think are the end of the world. Well, they aren't for the Bitcoin ATM industry. We've seen this since the beginning of the company. There's always that announcement that everyone thinks, oh, you know, our Bitcoin ATMs still going to be popular or people still going to use them after XYZ event occurs and usage has not slowed down. Through all of these events over the years. Yeah, it's a great point. And one thing we talked about earlier, but folks moving to self hosted wallets and there was just a huge migration of Bitcoin off centralized exchanges. And I think despite what I've noticed, despite the price being down, there's still a lot of people interested in Bitcoin and the technology and diversifying adding this as an asset to their portfolio. So I feel like we've crossed a chasm, so to speak, where it's like, okay, it's not so much about price, but we need this asset here and people are starting to recognize the benefits of it. Yeah, exactly. Well, it's a good time to buy for anyone that's held out over the past year and a half. And I think now a lot of people who are waiting on the sidelines have seen a couple of these crypto winters and they know that it's only a matter of time until we see that upward momentum. And that a lot of times the media makes it a lot worse than it seems. For example, mount gox had something like 50 times or more the trading volume of FTX according to some posts that I've seen on Twitter. And the media makes it seem like FTX was the entire crypto market. And without FTX, how could there be anything left that will survive? But that's not the case. Yeah, I even read that mount gox there were much more Bitcoin that was lost. In that collapse versus FTX objects, yes, investors lost access to their funds, but it wasn't like a ton of Bitcoin that was lost, but more so in mount gox. Which I found interesting because now obviously you have a bunch of different altcoins that was obviously the FTT token native token to FTX, but way less Bitcoin lost. Yeah, they're on token was a large portion of the losses. Yeah.

"Super easy. And convenient. Can you tell us about the security layers you have in place? So let's say the folks use your app and your wallet. Is it a self hosted wallet? And are you cussing with, let's say, a coinbase custody tell us about those security layers? Yeah, totally. That's a good question considering the circumstances today. Well, we have always focused on never custody, customer funds. Because we knew things like FTX and other situations would happen. There's always a possibility you could be hacked in some sort of way. We never wanted to take that risk. So it's an entirely self custodial wallet, the Bitcoin depot wallet. Now, if somebody wants to come use a Bitcoin ATM, using the coinbase wallet and way to transaction, they can do that. But that's not what we recommend. We recommend using our wallets so you're always in control of your own crypto. If something happens to Bitcoin depot, we go out of business, file bankruptcy, whatever the case may be, somebody hacks us your Bitcoin and your Bitcoin depot wallet is safe as long as you never gave your username and password and private key to somebody else. That's great. I mean, I think to your point, after this whole FTX collapse, even Celsius and BlockFi and so forth. People, there was a big rush to get self hosted wallets, even hardware wallets. And that's, you know, the mantra that was said years ago, especially by a lot of bitcoiners that not your keys, not your coins. I think rings true again here, and I think hopefully people learn from the situation, but it's great that you guys are using a setup where folks control their own coins. Yeah, it was good timing for us. Now, as far as when to transactions done, let's say I scan the code and all that I get my I convert my cash to Bitcoin, is that Bitcoin instantly available or is there like any lag time where I can withdraw it if I wanted to move it or send it to somebody? It's the same lag that you would have sending Bitcoin from any wallet to another wallet. So every every wallet may require a confirmation, for example, on the Bitcoin network from the miners until it's actually spendable. So it could be ten minutes until you could go rescind it, spend it somewhere else potentially. A kind of weird question for you, and it's something I've been thinking about for years. And I've talked to quite a few folks about it, and that is, there are different demographics in the world, right? It goes without saying, there's different people, different walks of life, who are familiar with different levels of technology. And they trust different things. Whether it be trust banks, they trust ATMs or exchanges. So could you tell us a bit about the demographic that uses the Bitcoin ATMs and, you know, who are they, especially like in the United States, are they like the older folks who are, hey, I know how to use an ATM, I could buy some Bitcoin on this. Can you tell

"atm" Discussed on Bloomberg Crypto

"Movement there. Right, yeah. So I actually did look this up. There was a company that we were reporting on called Bitcoin depot. They were still trying to go public when we were doing our reporting. Bitcoin depot is a fast growing cryptocurrency ATM network letting you buy and sell Bitcoin and multiple other cryptocurrencies instantly at thousands of space that it would happen in Q one of 2023 looked it up. They issued a statement earlier this month saying that they still intended to do that. And one thing that has changed since we were doing the bulk of our reporting is that the FTX empire has collapsed crypto prices have plunged even more than they were already down. And so the fact that earlier this month, the company said that they're still plowing ahead with the spac deal is interesting and of note. Another Bitcoin ATM provider who was also tied to the contagion now in crypto in a way, one of the companies everybody's been following is genesis, the lender, and we've been reporting how they have been trying to raise money from investors and warning that if they don't manage to raise they might have to file for bankruptcy. So can you maybe talk a bit about that about how one of the Bitcoin ATM companies was sort of connected to genesis the lender? Right, yeah. So our colleague, Rachel but she found some really interesting stuff about the debt of coin cloud. It ran about 5000 ATMs across the U.S. and Brazil. And she found that they had tapped advisers to help them rework about a $125 million of debt that they had accumulated to fund and aggressive expansion. She reported that back in November. So again, things have changed quite a bit very rapidly in the crypto space, but it does raise some questions about these companies that may have incurred quite a large bit of debt and what they're going to do with them. You know, that company we were talking about earlier that going depot that does still intend on going publicly back, they owe $42.4 million under a term loan bearing a 15% interest rate, as of June 30th, according to a proxy statement, so it's a question of, you know, how sustainable all these businesses it does seem that some of them oh a fair bit of money, Bitcoin depot, again, they said that they're still going to go forward, the spac deal could end up injecting some very much needed cash and do that business. So, you know, one of the pressures that the industry is facing in general now, not just Bitcoin and regulatory pressure, right? We've seen especially after the collapse of FDX regulators looking to crack down, policy makers as well. What's the current environment like for Bitcoin and yams and could that be seen as another sort of threat for growth in the space? Right. It does depend on where you are. So, for example, Singapore, January, they banned crypto ATMs, they said, you have to shut down your operations. In the UK, they've also taken some more aggressive measures. It was in March that they said that they hadn't approved any machines and they told operators you have to remove any of your units that are still in use. From where I am in the United States, regulators have been a little bit more hands off. I guess you could say there's not a ton of laws in place kind of monitoring these machines. However, there are warnings. There are concerns. The FBI warning about fraudulent schemes targeting cryptocurrency ATMs with criminals, directing victims to use the ATMs and send funds that are then used for illegal activity, the ATMs are found. There was a report issued in September 2021 from the government accountability office and they said that they said that crypto machines could be used to facilitate drug trafficking, it's also recommended that they should be reviewed for their registration requirements and federal agencies agreed, but there hasn't necessarily been a lot of movement on that regulation space. So it's kind of another issue of everybody agrees, yes. There should be regulation for this crypto thing, but there are questions about who, how and what exactly that means. So I know you don't have a crystal ball, but going forward, what you expect or at least what are you looking at, what are we looking at in terms of Bitcoin ATMs? What would be interesting for you to see? I would say dicey, I guess. You know, all of crypto could go for more regulation, and I could see this being something that could get a little bit more lawmaker interest intrigue, especially in the U.S., there hasn't been much, but there have been warnings and other countries and places have taken actions against them, so there is a question of what U.S. regulators might do. They're also might be fewer operators. This is something that even like you said, Anna, the companies that we talk to, they were really bullish. They were super excited about crypto ATMs and the future, but a lot of them even said that they expect more consolidation in the space, right? So there are some really big Bitcoin ATM operators, but there's a lot of smaller players too, and now that each machine isn't getting as much transactions, you know, there are questions of if it's sustainable business model to have a one off machine every now and again. So some of the larger players and of course this does play into their interests, but they kind of said there would be consolidation and there weren't as many operators and as many providers and people would start to seek out trusted platforms or kind of no names in the Bitcoin ATM space whether they're right or not. Who knows, but that was their guess. And I guess as far as utilization, we have seen that the usage and the installation of these machines, they're not separate from Bitcoin prices. So again, we have no crystal ball. All that we know is that right now, the price of Bitcoin is significantly lower than it was a year ago. I don't know where it would be a year from now, but I would have to assume that since the history of crypto ATMs has been somewhat tied to Bitcoin prices that the future of crypto ATMs will also be tied to those same prices. So I think you'll have to come and report back on whether your hometown still has a big opportunity as a judge to the meter to whether the industry is still going strong. Yeah, I'll check in Christmas. I'll be going home so soon. So maybe I'll stop it. Great. All right, thank you, Carly. Thank you.

"So before we get into what's going on with Bitcoin ATMs now. Let's have a chat about what actually Bitcoin ATMs are. I have seen the Bitcoin like the buy Bitcoin signs that are on bodegas and gas stations and stuff like that and just always thought how odd but I never never engage never even noticed the physical machines before. Because it seemed during the previous cycle they sort of exploded, especially in the U.S.. They were everywhere. You mentioned bodegas. They were in rural locations and in the middle of nowhere. So there are many, but it is quite telling that you have a notice. Maybe you weren't the target audience. Maybe I just wasn't paying close enough attention. So why would someone use one? Like what were companies saying? It seems pretty easy, you know, the machine is in your face, right? They are there. They're in gas stations next to. The soda or the candy. It's a sign a lot of them flash the price of Bitcoin for the day at you. So you see it, you think about it. And it also means that you can buy Bitcoin with cash. So for some people who, if they don't have a bank account or they don't feel like going to a bank, you know, there is that benefit, and there's also a certain degree of anonymity, at least for smaller transactions, you know, different providers have different rules about how much information you need for how much money that you're transacting with, but in a lot of cases, you know, it can be less information than if you needed to go to an actual bank and deal with an account that way. Let's talk a bit about the metrics and dynamics of how they work the economics, let's say, who pays whom why would you want one in your store and how do they make money? So as far as the store owners perspective, that one does make some sense as to why you would want one in your store. You know, if you own a bodega, the machine is another source of income, and it's not highly obtrusive. It can sit someplace, it is like a physical machine, but at the same time, you don't have to do that much. Oftentimes the way that it works is, you know, you get some sort of rent that's paid to you if you're the store owner, so that's a benefit. And you don't have to handle it. There is somebody else who comes and they pick up the cash and then they leave and I went to a few bodegas. I talked to store owners, and they just said that, you know, some man would come like every week, every few weeks, something along those lines take out the cash, but I'm working at deal with whatever needed to be dealt with. They're pretty hands off and, you know, one guy even told me, I don't really pay any attention to it. Maybe it gets me a customer every now and then. A customer's a customer, so what do I really care? And so for the store owner, it really does. It's not a big commitment, and they do get paid to have them in their store. There is often a rent type of agreement. So I guess we talked about the rally. That was then we've been in a crypto winter now for several months, where volumes on exchanges have dropped prices have fallen significantly since a year ago, which leads me to why I guess we started looking at Bitcoin ATMs again. Can you sort of walk our listeners through why we thought it was a good moment to check in again? Right, so if you look at data online, we mainly used coin ATM radar and I mean, you got to look it up. It's like a mountain. You know, it just increases and increases for the amount of Bitcoin, ATMs that were installed in 2020 and especially in 2021. It does kind of look like it went up with the price of Bitcoin as it was shooting up and it's not that necessarily there are fewer, you know, there was a peak in August of 2022 for the amount of Bitcoin ATMs that were in the United States and actually in September, more Bitcoin ATMs were taken down than they were installed, which is like a first for the industry. So the number of crypto ATMs peaks around 34,000 in August and since then, they've kind of come down a little bit, fluctuated more and so our question was, you know, in this machine that it's physical, it's in the store it flashes the price of Bitcoin at you when you walk in. If you're somebody who is passing by if the price is, you know, 19,000 as it was when I was going around to these or now more around 16 17,000 even that's a lot less appealing than 60,000. So it's a question of, all right, these machines are still there. The data is showing that there are a few of them getting installed. Is anyone even really using them or companies feeling okay about it so we had a lot of questions and we asked a lot of people a lot of the same questions as to how the industry is doing after this massive boom. Yeah, and many of them seem quite sort of bullish still that they're saying, you know, they have to kind of be a bit more deliberate, maybe focus on areas that had more foot traffic or the mainstream and less rural. And I remember when we were reporting early days we were looking at the map, because for listeners, you can search online and find all the maps of the Bitcoin ATMs in the U.S. and you mentioned that there was one in the town you come from. Oh yeah, I mean, I'm from Macon, Georgia. I am really surprised, but there were, I mean, several around the area and I was just wondering, who from my hometown was key possibly using this. Right now I'm in New York City and in some ways. And maybe it's because I'm around people who deal more with crypto, but I'm like, yeah, sure. Crypto a DMs in Macon Georgia, just the thought of somebody using a crypto ATM. It's so funny to me. I can't imagine their clientele would be. So, you know, we looked at usage and based on data from China analysis, we saw that usage had dropped significantly. But obviously, you went there too. And although this is anecdotal, can you give us a sense of what it was like? You were literally just waiting there to see if someone showed up. Yeah, I just studied by the Bitcoin ATMs, hung out with store owners, maybe chatted with a customer too. I never saw anybody use them. I talked to a lot of store owners, even some stories, you know, because you want a broader sample. I call it some random places and the consensus was that really hardly anybody was using these, you know, again, it's anecdotal, maybe one guy would say like one or two people, occasionally would come in. Another thing that did come up with at least two of the store owners is that they did say that they felt like there was a drop in demand for usage given bitcoins decline in prices. I mean, that makes sense. That's what the data has seen, but it was also interesting to know that store owners said maybe back in the day, a year ago, they might get one guy told me maybe four or 5 people who had come to the machine, and now it's maybe one, maybe two, but maybe nobody, you know? So it does kind of seem like these machines are sitting a little bit more in waiting for customers that they perhaps once had more of. Up next, more with Bloomberg reporter Karl iwana on the present and the future of Bitcoin ATMs. What if you were a global energy company with operations in Scotland, technologists in India and customers all on different systems.

"Let me tell a JJ story real fast. All right. Okay. A hundred years ago, I'm carrying for Brian gay. He's already got like three wins. He's got more money than the Pope. We're at TPC. We're on Tuesday. We're Wednesday, whatever it is. We're going to play a practice round. So me and Brian gay go over the first date, all by ourselves, you know, to play a practice with brown's kind of a quiet guy. Loved working for the guy like crazy. I still have one of my dearest friends in life. I spent ten years with him. He's awesome. But man Beijing are fixed to tee off and we're staying on the T white and the guy in the crowd start coming to the bleachers around one team. They used to have bleachers by one, you know? And so, right? Yes, it's sovereignty. They keep PC and the fast start feeling that. I go, oh, somebody cools come to the T and all of a sudden here comes piss at JJ. And who's the tall guy? Brendan Steele? Brian Steele. And then Bill megalon walks around the corner. Bill Mickelson walks up to the tea, fail, you know, Phil looks over. He goes, Brian stand everybody and these three nuts are coming and Phil looks at prior. He goes, Brian, you got a game, and he goes, now he goes, what do you got one now? And he goes, he goes, me and you gonna fly. And steel, he goes, we're gonna play a 500 a side, 505 hundred for the 18. It's $1500. And Brian Gary has more money than anybody is tighter than Dick's hack man. He squeaks when he walks. He is hard when. Guys, sorry, he had won 30 3.2 million this season before. So the guy's got more money. And Brian absolutely locked beat the up like crazy. Brian looked at me. He goes, I don't even have $50 in my pocket. And I go, dude, you got to play the game. And so we see you all for everybody takes off and Brian. And he's already has three PGA wins. And he is so nervous that can't even get a breath going down one tee. JJ, JJ's is walking down the first sea like he owns the world. He's been big business. And I go up to feel like a boy, you have locked my guy. He's nervous and shit. I said it. Plus, you don't have any money and Phil goes, well, he had $1500 in a few minutes for this. The other part of that that you don't even know is like, we only thought there was going to be three of us. So we had individual action with Phil two that was like a 1500 NASA. So. I'm like, no, it gets even better. Colleen had to go to like four separate ATMs just to play that day.

"Can. Oh my goodness. Well, who'd have thunk it? The board apes are on some candy. I mean, I guess. This is like, you know, the mainstreaming of this thing. Is this cool? Are people annoyed by this? I don't know. There's probably like, however many thousands of people who are like actual board aid holders, right? What does everyone else think? Are people annoyed at this? I don't know. It seems weird that NFTs are on M and M's now, but sure, it's just intellectual property that can be licensed and distributed and whatever novel way we can imagine. So yeah, Jen, what are your thoughts? Well, you know, I think if we think a long-term, this makes sense. We can think of any of our favorite musicians or bands or brands, partnering with M and M's to make limited edition candies. So I don't know, like Mickey Mouse, if we put Mickey Mouse on an M and M, we wouldn't be questioning whether this is something that people should go out and buy, and we'd be like, oh, okay, cool, M and M's partnered with Disney and their Mickey Mouse M and ms. So I think we're proving out these these use cases at a very, very low level. Like almost like an MVP. And this is something we can expect in the future. Probably a lot of people have no idea what these are. They're seeing them. They're like, oh, there's some cool apes on M and ms. They have no idea. What kingship is, they don't know about the board apes, but for the community that is formed around them, I think it's kind of cool. Will what do you think? Yeah, I like the Mickey Mouse example. And that's the way I've been thinking about it more lately is NFTs kind of came from the whole advertisement space backwards way, right? So steamboat Willie got Mickey Mouse really big and that's how everyone knows about Mickey Mouse because they started using him in cartoons, started using him at Disney World Disneyland and took so long to build that personality and that character that everybody knew. The flip side, we now have an NFT characters that immediately hit the market, took off for whatever reason. They had no utility no value. They weren't involved any marketing, they were involved in any cartoons, any sort of mainstream media adoption happened slowly though on the backside, right? So now we have these M and ms. We have other stuff. There's been bands that have done stuff with these apes. So it's just a flipped model, right? And so I think these people use NFT holders. They have a lot more money coming. That's for sure. That's what I see coming forward. So I'm not a huge fan of these ones. I don't think they're that cool looking. I like the crypto punks more. Gen to you. So the boxes of M and ms are already selling on the secondary market for double the price, but you can still get them on M and ms dot com. I have a question for you guys. What should I do with my box? Should I eat them? Or keep them? What do I flip it? Flip the box of M and ms. I think you have to flip it. That's the true ethos in spirit of most NFT projects. So as such, you need to flip the M and M box. Jen, can we get an opinion on that? I will keep you guys updated. All right, good stuff. Love it. Flip it. All right, that's it for the show today. We're going to do some M and M wash trading with Jen over here. And it's going to be, it's going to be an adventure. NFT shenanigans. All right, that's it for the show today. I'm Zach, it's will.

"Switching gears a little bit with you that you've got a piece up now at revolver dot news. And you're talking about Dave portnoy. Now, for folks who don't know, Dave portnoy, he is the head of barstool nudes, or he was the head and then they sold to this online gambling firm years ago, but he still sort of figurehead of the organization, one of the founders. And in your piece, and we've got the graphic here. It says that Dave portnoy is embarrassing himself already. And you're getting into this thing with between Dave portnoy and Alex Stein. And I think we have clipped 60. We actually have a clip of Alec comedian right wing comedian Alex Stein getting into it. Not even with portnoy, but he had some comments. I think it was a Las Vegas city council meeting to play clip 60 guys. And I get fed alcohol, and I get entirely way too intoxicated. I go to the ATM, I use my credit card. They make it very accessible to be able to gamble in my credit card. You know this merry Goodman. They make it absolutely incredibly accessible councilman to be able to take all I have. And now I got to go back to Clearwater, Florida, and I have nothing. Okay, so he's talking about gambling and he's making a joke about that. And sort of a meta joke about that's essentially what Las Vegas is. And we have the image up now that you guys made from revolver dot news on portnoy and signed and this whole bit, but let me ask you about this, is what is the difference here between what the new right is all about and what barstool conservatism is about and why did this incident we've got a couple of minutes left, why did this incident really highlight that? That's a great question. And to be perfectly honest, the term itself barstool's conservative is quite new to me. I'm just learning about it and my understanding is the kind of precise genealogy origin of it is meant to sort of convey this demographic theoretical demographic of people who are basically not socially conservative at all who are somewhat against wokeness, political correctness. And so forth. So fair enough. But yeah, abortion, that kind of thing. So fair enough. I would also throw out their man cave conservatism. No, that's the image that comes to my mind

"Of tests. We set up wall barriers and two interior walls, so you have sheet rock and then another issue rock. You have another one like that. Then you had an exterior wall. To see, okay, let's shoot through all three walls. What leaves the house? Sure. In that example. Now, if you live here, you could literally shoot a 50 Cal offense. You're not going to hit a neighbor. There's no neighbor to hit. You're surrounded. But if you live in a small tight knit neighborhood or apartment complex, you know, you can say, all right, I don't want to just going forever. Here's the crazy thing. We shot a good variety of stuff. Everything went through all three walls, except the only two that didn't go through all three walls. Was a two two three lightweight like varma bull 40 grain type of bullet, or bird shot. Yeah. And then we said, okay, let's move those over to, I think either jugs of water, because sometimes that's the easiest thing, gel, sometimes it's not always available. So water's a consistent medium, it's not the perfect thing. And at close distances, they still did a lot of damage. And so that's why I can trigger somebody by saying birdshot for home defense and they like, you're crazy. I'm like, no, no, no, I'm not saying it is the best thing ever. Right. It's really not. But if you're very concerned about over penetration, it can be an option. Yeah, no, I agree a 100%. I mean, I'm not saying this is my advice to you, but I'm just saying, if you live in an apartment complex, maybe that's an option. What other have there been tests over the years when you guys are doing stuff that you were, you got something you didn't expect to get? That you were surprised by, or it didn't act like you thought it would. Yeah, we see stuff on a regular basis where when we set up a test, you always kind of hypothesize what's going to happen. And a lot of times we'll ask the other engineers, you know, what do you think this is going to do? Just to see, you know, what you think, you know, off top of my head, I'm trying to think of a time that I was really shocked, like I said, it happens pretty regularly when things turn up that are a little bit different. Whether it's shooting a gelatin block and you see something that penetrates a lot deeper than you think or dealing with shotgun patterns and you're evaluating various types of non toxic shot TSS tungsten is a real popular one these days for turkey hunters and choke response for that is makes a big deal. That was one. It's important. It is very important. I can remember whenever I was working on the Remington 20 gauge TSS loads and I was shooting them through extra full choke tube and I had purchased some chokes specifically optimized for TSS. And I just couldn't believe how much tighter it made the patterns. It's very interesting that you're talking about this because I was just doing a video about patterning. And we weren't trying to cover everything about chokes and patterns, but just to try to get a starting point. But we were talking about how much a difference a choke can make. It even like, your gun might come with chokes. Sure. And I'm sorry. I mean, I'm not picking on anybody, but not all chokes are created equal. And the guys who make aftermarket chokes, they'll be like, well, have you patterned your gun with the chokey came with? Yeah. Not only is the pattern may not be great, it may be not too aim. Sure. Yeah. And you know, developing ammunition we test in a variety of platforms if it's shotshell ammunition will be a variety of shotgun manufacturers. They sometimes use different board diameters. But we'll also evaluate factory chokes after market jokes because you don't want to develop a product that only works well in one specific type of product. You want it to be very diverse. And so we've got to know that. We've got to be able to go in and make sure that the product, whoever picks it up and buys it, that they're going to see good performance. Yeah. All right, we're going to be right back. AT and optics are not your granddaddy's optics. These are smart HD optics. It's powered by the latest microprocessors and it uses a high res micro display.

"To the city of Miami to Bitcoin 2021. Here at the country's largest Bitcoin conference in Miami, nearly everyone is talking about cashing in on the crypto craze. We're the first big one ATM companies to try to push some education. You can do that in one transaction. Can utilize any wallet you'd like to use to store your cryptocurrency. And crypto ATM companies who make their money by charging a premium on each transaction are a growing part of the industry with more than 26,000 kiosks around the country. These machines are a huge convenience and also they can be a huge target for fraud. How easy is it for criminals to exploit these machines? Seems like it's very simple. Lisa cellino is counsel for the New Jersey state commission of investigation, which looked into Bitcoin ATMs, finding many operating with virtually no oversight, even though their owners must register with the US Treasury's financial crimes enforcement network. There's no ID collected. There's no photo taken. There's no address. And that opens the doors for criminals. Yes. And what do they do with it? I mean, anything for money laundering, dark web, fraud, scams. The New Jersey commission's report discovered more than $70 million deposited for cryptocurrency purchases between 2015 and 2020. Many companies allowed customers to buy up to $900 worth of cryptocurrency with only a cell phone number, or no information at all. Is that a bad idea? Based on what we found yes, because it could be any name and your cell phone number could come back to anybody. Which is handy for drug traffickers and money launderers, who the DEA says are using the machines to aid in the movement of illicit bulk currency. We wanted to see how easy it was to buy Bitcoin with just a phone number. So a CNBC producer tested it out at this machine in a New Jersey convenience store. After getting this text warning about crypto scams, it only took a few minutes to complete the transaction. A spokesperson for the companies that run the ATM said they take knowing customers identities, very seriously, and will only allow transactions with just a cell phone number if they can verify who is buying crypto. If not, the machine will ask for an ID. Is someone of the wild west? Mark grins, cofounder and president of digital mint, a Chicago based company is trying to clean up the crypto ATM industry. These customers would not believe that they want to be victims, and they would state I'm going to go to other big one ATM companies who never asked me any questions and let me purchase how much of I want. Digital mint recently launched a cryptocurrency compliance cooperative to develop universal compliance standards. One study found nearly 75% of all the illicit funds leaving ATMs wound up at fraud shops, which are sites on the dark web that sell stolen credit card information. To buy crypto digital men requires customers to provide a government issued ID that it verifies plus a phone number. One of digital men's competitors is coin flip, also based in Chicago. The company allows someone to purchase up to $900 in crypto with just a name and a phone number. Higher amounts require more identification. Is that safe? It's a 100% safe, and even if someone shows an ID, if you're sending Bitcoin to someone you don't know, you have the same problem. Coin flip wants to offer its services to a wide range of customers. We want everyone to be able to buy $50, a $100, $200 of Bitcoin, regardless of their immigration status and regardless that they have an ID. Everyone who wants access to Bitcoin deserves to have access to it. New Jersey now has pending legislation that would require all crypto ATM operators to get a license in the state and around the country, regulation varies widely with some states requiring a license, while others have no oversight of this fast growing industry guys. Amen, the justification now for companies that allow up to $900 to be sent with just a cell phone number. Why do that? What's the justification for that? Well, you heard Ben, the CEO of coin flip in the piece right there. He's talking about undocumented immigrants. You know, when I talk to him in Chicago's fascinating, he's a guy who really views cryptocurrency as sort of a human right. He feels like just about everybody should be able to have access to it. The bar to access should be extremely low. And he said a lot of people who are unbanked don't have government IDs that are valid. He wants immigrants and others who are unbanked now to be able to use his system to get access to cryptocurrency to send payments to their family to anybody they want. Now, the argument on the flip side of that is that if you lower all those security standards to that level, you're inviting a lot of fraud. Okay. Yep. Got it. Thanks, amen.

"Contract or it's kind of a work in progress? No, I think that the nuance that you're speaking to there speaks to how the rental car purchase agreements work, which would take us a couple of hours to discuss a full. So I'd hate to bore everybody with the nuances of how these mechanics work. We don't need to know the nuances. Is there a deal for a 100,000? And are you guys paying full price? You've seen the public commentary as it relates to the price it will pay. I think that one thing that's really important on EVs is that EVs have a substantial amount of demand generally. And so the idea of purchasing vehicles at substantial discounts, which had been a key component of our rental car companies that operate in the past. Probably doesn't work as it relates to EVs. The specifics of deals with any OEMs, not something that we ever disclosed publicly. And so we believe in paying a price that works for the OEM works for our partners and creating a real partnership. And so there's no question that we want that collaboration to continue going forward. And maybe Twitter isn't the place to negotiate it? I don't even know if I have a Twitter account, so I'm definitely the wrong person to ask in that regard. I give asked my kids the question as to whether or not that's the right place to go for anything of any consequence. But I think that for us on a really serious note, we're thrilled to develop partnerships with OEMs to bring EVs into our fleet. This is about building an ecosystem to move electrification forward, not simply as it relates to having cars that are available to rent to consumers, but also other channels like the Uber channel that we've developed. The charging infrastructure that's so critically important, being able to electrify providing electrification and charging infrastructure at airports is something that we're working very, very hard on. And I think we really changed the consumer experience. Hopefully, not just for our consumers, but for customers of the OEMs that only these vehicles as well. Hey Mark, let's talk about what's happening in the auto industry right now. Because there are some incredible transformative changes that have been taking place. We've already this morning talked about luminar and the deal with Nvidia, watch luminaries who have shares soaring on this. And then we've been talking about rivian too. And what looks like it will be a $65 billion market cap for a company that doesn't have any sales yet, but has some pretty big backers with both Ford and Amazon. How do you kind of get your arms around what's happening? How quickly are things changing? Well, things are changing quickly. I think from our standpoint, it hurts. When you develop a strategy, that strategy has to be informed by key trends. And as we look at the world and what's going to shape mobility, we see four key trends. It's about electrification, shared mobility, connected cars and autonomy. And I think when you look at our strategy, it hurts. And how we're transforming our business. And the things that we do better than anybody else, around managing and operating large fleet scale for vehicles, I think we're positioning ourselves wherever mobility two goes and you just mention a couple of examples there with some of the new electrification players. We are going to be very well positioned to partner with any and all of these players to help them enable that going forward. Even when you think down towards autonomy, our first mover advantage in terms of learning how to manage these large electrified fleets, I think that's going to serve us very well going forward versus others in the industry. And we want to partner with everybody as Tom mentioned and help them as we go to sustainable transportation transportation, not just transportation. How is the experience going to look different for hertz consumer somebody walking up to rent a car? Well, we've said very clearly what we want to do is lead and what we call the digital first experience. So we're making some very targeted investments to make sure that when a consumer and anytime they interact with our brand that they'll have a positive experience and it's kind of interesting, Becky, this industry is a terrific industry, but it hasn't changed much over the last 50 years in terms of how you actually rent the vehicle, et cetera. And it's a company we're asking ourselves, not the question why, we're asking ourselves the question why not? And I think you're going to continue to see a lot of innovation from hertz. Because interestingly, innovation is in the DNA of hertz, going all the way back to when hertz was the first to have a coast to coast network, first have airport locations, first to have our gold service. So you're going to see us amp that up a lot over the next months and years ahead. Tom and Greg let me ask you both. Just how long you plan to be investors in the stock, because part of this, the reason for this pricing today for this IPO, this re IPO is to pay out some of your other partners. Cougar capital and oak tree who were investors along the way. How long will you all be here? Is this something where you'd sell out to retail investors who want to buy or you plan on being here for a long time? Well, we have grand plans for hertz. This is a substantial investment for both of our organizations. The partnership happens to work exceptionally well. Sir Taurus brings to bear a very unique dataset that we believe will substantially improve the way that we run the business. And so many of the things that we are embarking to complete as it relates to the transformation of hertz or in the very early stages. So this today's event was about creating a float for the stock so that there would be shares available to trade, so we could actually have a security that trades with some liquidity on the marketplace and the largest shareholders are willing to give up a percentage of their ownership to allow that to take place. So I think we're looking at this as the first step, but Greg, I think this is something we're quite excited about. Yeah, we've generally owned a own companies for a long time. I think our tenor in some of our companies is over ten years. So we don't have any plans to sell. We don't have any plans to not sell. I think what we want to do is work with Mark and the rest of the herds team to make this as good an investment as we can have in the travel industry, for instance, we don't get a lot of opportunities to electrify. So our investors both Tom's investors, my investors and our joint investors are concerned with being environmentally responsible and socially conscious. And as we found out when we were talking to investors about this deal, there really isn't very much out there to buy that makes actual cash that where you can also do things that are environmentally responsible. A lot of them are growth plays. You mentioned rivian. Is pre revenue. And it's got great backers. It's great company. Don't get me wrong, but this is something that you can invest in at relatively attractive terms in the environmentally responsible space. And you can get invested in a large way. And I think you're going to find Mark and the rest of the team are very committed to making this an EV play. It Mark outline the strategy, really, really well this morning. And I think you're going to find that as our investors and ourselves get more and more comfortable with hurts, this will become a longer and longer term play for us. Greg, you said you don't have any plans to sell. You don't have any plans not to sell. Does that mean it depends on price or is there some other metric that you're watching? No, we're not. We're long-term holders of assets in general. And what I was trying to do is maybe be a little more cute than I should have been, which means, you know, we really haven't focused on liquidity. We're really focused on the day to today transformation of the company. And I think as you see that company transform over time, you'll see us you'll see us get more comfortable. Maybe we're buyers. Who knows? This is a cultural pivot for us in terms of being an environmentally first company. Now, I won't go far to say we're going to change our corporate colors from yellow to green, but I think you get greggs and my point. Definitely. Mark Greg Tom want.

"Maybe. Interim CEO Mark fields. This is about us positioning ourselves to lead and be a central player enroll and component of the modern mobility ecosystem. And we are uniquely positioned to do that. And cash in fraud out ATM swapping cash for cryptocurrency are popping up all over the country. So why are they on the FBI's radar? CNBC's Amanda's investigates. Many companies allowed customers to buy up to $900 worth of cryptocurrency with only a cell phone number, or no information at all. Those stories and more like a surprising hack at Robinhood. I think the bigger news is they got through to a customer service operator. Right. And a new era for GE, the original Dow component founded by Thomas Edison, splitting into pieces. Wow. It's Tuesday, November 9th, 2021. Squawk pod begins right now. Stand Becky by in three, two, one, feel free. Good morning, everybody. Welcome to squawk box here on CNBC. I'm Becky quick along with Joe kernan and Andrew is off today. It hurts. Did you know, I guess I knew. Hertz is yellow. It's a yellow thing. So out in the lobby, I was walking along and I passed a mirror and I was like, jaundice. I thought I was like jaundice. I do. The bright yellow. Oh, it's like, oh my God, my liver, this finally. Wow. It's finally given up. After 50 years. It is an eye catching color. You got furby out there. There's a lot of yellow room, but it's cool. Look forward to that and look forward to Mark field will have that interview a little bit later. I think it's a tournament. All right, to hear, yeah. Let's get to this Robin Hood story. Shares of Robinhood are under pressure that a company I'm thinking about, I said that my liver finally just said, okay, enough. I can't do anything. Yeah, that unfortunately is not something you joke about because when that happens, it's just you don't realize how much you need that thing. It doesn't work anything. The company disclosed that in intruder gained access to the information of millions of users. Robinhood says the breach took place Wednesday evening and has since been contained email addresses for about 5 million users were exposed as well as the full names of a different group of about 2 million users and the intruder access more extensive personal information for a group of more than 300 users. But no social security numbers or bank information was exposed according to the company. And Robinhood says no customers experienced any financial losses. The intruder gained that got that going for us. The intruder gained access to Robinhood's systems by impersonating an authorized party to a customer support employee on the phone and then a ransom payment was demanded after that hack was contained. When I saw this, I thought, wait a second. I thought when Robinhood had all their problems, what was it a year or so ago, because they weren't great risk managers. Maybe that was a year and a half ago. They weren't great risk managers. We were saying at the time, they're great tech managers. That's what they do. These are fantastic tech managers. They're not risk managers. But how are they the ones who are getting hacked into with something like this, especially with a crazy backdoor, like you call a customer service? Is anybody hackable, I guess? I think the bigger news is they got through to a customer service operator. Right. Yeah, right, right. I can tell you a couple of things I deal with where that's an impossibility. I won't go into any names, but I mean coinbase, I think it's really difficult. Oh, I just meant. I wasn't going to mention anything. DraftKings, I don't know. But all these fast growing entities, customer service, it's the email thing. You got to send an email. I think I'm never going to hear back. I think it goes into cyberspace, doesn't it? And it just sits there. It's called espresso the other day. There's a number you can call it because they discontinued Maya. What happened? My decaf. You know, the decaf that everybody lived. Yeah, I got somebody who answered. And then it sounded like a recording and said, we can't hear you. We can't hear you. You kept going on and on. And I was like, that's a pretty good scam, you know? Just pretend you can't hear me. Just have the recording running on it. But it makes you feel like you're talking to somebody. Yeah, exactly. All my spam calls, I they're all, you know, it takes me about a couple of minutes I'm talking to a recording and then I finally realized, hey, I say something, they're not expecting. And then the answer with, you've been recording all along. The Federal Reserve is warning that market volatility relating to meme stocks could pose a risk to the U.S. financial system. As part of its semi annual report on financial stability, the Central Bank says that new trading platforms flashy graphics, zero commission trades and fractional share buying are all contributing to the growth of a new generation of retail investors. And the sheer size of the cohort makes it important for regulators to watch. From the report they say social media can contribute to an echo chamber in which retail investors find themselves communicating most frequently with others with similar interests and views, their by enforcing their views, even if these views are speculative or biased. Yeah, no kidding. The fed also adding that it is also watching China's real estate sector and spill and the risk of spillover into the United States. Yeah, that SoftBank story is interesting. $1 billion. I mean, but lots of sunset. It's actually good since we're less under the control of China, but I don't see how $54 billion loss in value in three months can really I guess you got to put the best face on it. Here's what I was talking about. Federal Reserve governor Randall quarrels announcing plans to resign his position around the end of the year, now giving President Biden as many as four seats to fill on the Central Bank 7 member board quarrels was appointed in October 2017 by Trump by president Trump. President Trump, people get married, and I said, president, I don't know why. We say president Clinton still, right? He would have been eligible to remain up as an Obama to remain a governor until 2032, but his term as vice chair lap last month and he had made enough money in his trading account to where he can that's a joke. That's a bad joke, too. Shouldn't get around about that. President Biden inherited one fed board vacancy that could be at least one more after clarita. Vice chair Richard clarendon's term expires in January. And now we're going to find out whether Jay Powell, president is close to announcing whether he's going to offer a second term to fed to a chair pal. And back what the journal conjectures is that since pals a Republican and quarles was a Republican with quarles gone, that will allow the president theoretically to keep Powell and still nominate enough to balance it out for progressives. Progressives want an equal amount of Democrats. Right. But you could with that additional opening it frees up President Biden supposedly according to them to give Jay Powell a second term without really getting the ire of Elizabeth Warren. That's where some of the questions. Elizabeth Warren has made it very obvious that she does not think power should be renominated. A lot of other people have rushed to pals to support. He was pretty instrumental in everything that went down with the pandemic and making sure he stepped in very quickly with things. There have also been reports that Leo brandard has been brought to The White House and vetted for the job of either vice chair or chair. And that's where the questions kind of come down. But it's getting close. It's already November. And February is when this has to be done, so. Yeah. We shouldn't hear. We may hear him sooner than rather than later. Yeah. On Jay Powell. I think it's gonna happen. I think so too. I think so too. I think that the market odor still kind of having that in bedding there. And I think it would probably make the market feel comfortable, but you never know what's going to happen with these things. We'll see..

So excited to see where this goes i history. Hopefully it doesn't take too long. I've been working in what. I like to just say computers. You talk to for now over twenty years so i guess dedicated all but a couple years of my career to this space. I really love it. I mean i feel like it's a privilege to work in this right. I mean i think flying cars and talking computers. This is the stuff of childhood sci-fi dreams and you know. I really honestly feel lucky to get to work in the space for as long as i have and so it goes back to my days. My only job before. This space was at the canadian at the time unicorn nortel which is sort of a competitor. Cisco's in this back in the late nineties and Back when everything was just internet infrastructure was the big business. And i had a job. They're working on crazy low level. Ip over atm stuff. I was a programmer. I love that stuff. And i all. My friends started quitting one day and they were going across the street. And i said where you're going like this they said this cool startup nuance and i was like. Oh that sounds fun and just like you do in your early twenties. Just quit my job like literally the next day and over and got a job at this other place where all my friends were and man. That was lucky. That was just one of those life.

How To Play Poker Responsibly

"Sparingly. I have no problem the idea of going off a little bit. Do whatever you want but you want to make sure that you have systems in place such that you cannot go off all that hard but a lot of people they decided. I'm going to go to the casino this weekend. And i'm gonna take the bucks. I'm gonna play some blackjack or some poker. And i'm going to have some drinks with my friends and it's going to be a party. They go there. They start having their party. Everything's fine and dandy then get tilted for some reason either because they lose some money quickly or perhaps because they win money quickly and they think they're going to run like god next thing you know five hundred dollars vanishes. They go to the atm. They get out five hundred more that vanishes thousand advantages that go and they get a credit card loan or whatever they do is they charge them seven percent big. They lose that next thing going off the bender down twelve and their life is in the gun so this situation where you have to make sure that does not happen so so so essentially you wanna make sure that you do not have the ability to get that first loan. Maybe you have to have a little bit of barriers in place where you know like your cap two drinks or one drink. You know what. I mean like you need to figure out where you really start to go off the deep end right and if you never get to that point where you really start to go off the deep end. Then you'll just be fine right like I know jonathan little can have one glass of wine no problem but we don from the last two glasses of wine search get on the border once he s three all bets are off doing often event. And that's not where you want to be unless of course you have. Your one allotted go off time per month or whatever. You wanna call it right and like johnson's right. Don't bring your your debit card at the casino. Yeah exactly right like if you go to the casino and you know you have five hundred dollars to play with. And that's it you don't need your credit card. You don't need your debit card. You don't need any of these things now. Of course you may get out there and lose their money not having any money to get home or something like that. If you're going to be doing something like that. I mean not. Now get one hundred dollars on your wallet to car ride home or whatever you need but you don't set yourself up to where it's easy to go off. I personally have never gotten credit casino. Even though they're always trying to give it to me why have. I never gotten credited casino. Because i know they'll give me a whole lot of credit. And i don't wanna lose or have the potential to lose a whole lot of money even though it would make life a little bit easier to know it could go to the casino and they just give me one hundred k now. We had never have to take money to the casino right than wire it to them or whatever after the fact so it's not worth it. I don't want to have that tiny possibility that in some world i ended up going offer a whole load of money for no real reason. Even though i know that's not even meet right. Like i know that's not even but i recognize good.

The Real Danger of QAnon

"Finkelstein founder and director of the national contagion researchers to a nonpartisan multidisciplinary research group of experts including neuroscientists psychologists. Physicists machine learning experts who study online disinformation pamela. Presi is one of those experts. A senior research fellow at the institute who focuses on the psychology of thriving in a liberal democracy both have been sounding the alarm about the dangers of the antisemitic conspiracy theory cue on and we're not at all surprised to see the events at the capitol on january six there with us now to discuss what we can expect to see next from the movement and what is within our control to stop it pamela. Joel welcome to people of the pod. Thanks for having us so first of all. Please explain for our listeners. In the most basic of terms what is cunanan and why a group called. The american jewish committee might find it troubling. So cunanan is a cybercult that organized with populist conspiracy theories largely on twitter but another social networks as well it really got its roots in a trench community called h. ham and hmi is largely considered armpit of the internet Some of the worst ideas that arrived from social media come out of. Atm was inching about the colt of cunanan. Is that unlike other populist movements which rely on trash tags and organiz based on conspiracies have anti semitic components be value add for cunanan also had an anonymous profit so these diffuse organizations that form lobs on the basis of hashtags. They have a lot of power and benefit because people can act out in the name of the conspiracy without anybody really being responsible but one of the drawbacks. They have is that there's no leadership q. Figured out a solution to solve that you create anonymous leader who can drop missives secret coded information on avon that's encrypted with encryption that he's the only one that has the key for doing q enlisted his followers to become fellow researchers but got them researching with one another to portray vision of reality became increasingly apocalyptic. Interesting and so tell me a little bit more about the anti semitism that runs through cunanan. And how it informs these theories and this movement. The conspiracy group really semitic disinformation because every single successful conspiracy. Group necessarily has to reach for antisemitic. Disinformation as a matter of history and pragmatics. The beauty for a conspiracy theorist beauty being an awkward us but the the ease of anti semitic elements is that they are conspiratorial. And so there's a long history of as joe was saying things to grab things to look for that you just need to look at anti semitism defined and then you just enter that world that conspiratorial world where there is a mysterious you know evoke but somehow secretly powerful other who hides among you and is not always easy to spot that has tentacles in every seat of power government media and finance. That's the jewish conspiracy theory. That's the disinformation about jews. Jews benefit from transparency and the new technology of social media allows for so many areas of black boxes. You know so. Many areas of the dark web so many areas were light is not shining. And that's where these conspiracies grow pamela. Going back to your point about transparency. I'd argue everyone benefits from it. But yes i see your point about jews benefiting from that. I also should point out q. Went on rose to prominence not just during the isolation of the pandemic but during a moment of racial reckoning in this country is that relevant one of the places where we see this coming together in terms of the tools of the network contagion research institutes used to to create transparency and social media. Literally our goals create literacy on social media use machine learning to extract trans at a massive scale. So you characterize the information operations from these groups like you know and one of the largest information operations ever witnessed took place in the middle of quarantine when george floyd was killed and it was mobilized by cuban on and it was blaming george soros for instigating a civil war against antifa the moral other and so that really kind of i think brings home pamelas point in very concrete terms. You had this entire conspiracy network mobilizing around the idea that jewish international financier was causing a civil war was the force behind the moral other and that that was happening in the midst of the conditions of quarantine in that force not coincidentally also behind the virus so that was the largest surge of source activity. We've seen on twitter

Biden Imposes Sanctions on Generals Who Engineered Myanmar Coup

"At russian protests. Plenty of people holding up gold painted toilet. Brushes luxuriant lose can tell you a lot about despotic leaders. So we head into the smallest rooms from history but i for the sixth consecutive day across me on mar. Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets. They've been demonstrating since the military seized power last week. Overthrowing the elected government of aung san suu achieve. The army has claimed without evidence that an election in november one by miss sushi's party was fraudulent cinema. Today you've got. Where do ya on monday. The top military commander now in charge me. An online made his first televised address since the coup. He restated pledge to hold elections after year long state of emergency and he tried to reassure the public and investors that his interim government would be different from the oppressive That ran the country for nearly half a century. But america said yesterday it will impose fresh sanctions in response to the coup. I've approved a new executive order enabling us to sanction the military leaders who directed the coup their business interests as well as close family members and myanmar's biggest protest movement in a generation isn't backing down every night since the army toppled me and mars civilian government on february. First people all over. The country have banged their pots and pans at atm. This is an old ritual to cast out evil spirits which has morphed into a protest. Totally mccann are southeast. Asia correspondent. Many of these demonstrations have the air of carnival yesterday about one hundred young women paraded around downtown gone wearing disney princess outfits because they wanted to make the point that it wasn't just grownups who are angry about the coup. It's also girls. Their age and the streets are flooded with red balloons. Red being the color of aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party then lt in fact if you look at pictures today you won't see that many red balloons anymore. Because they've all sold out and how has the military reacted to all these protests. What's changed since we spoke just over a week ago when the protests hadn't started but there was clearly discontent about the coup. The army is trying to put a stop to these protests on monday. It's ian named true news. Information team issued a statement saying that action would be taken against wrongdoers who disrupt the state stability true to their word in cities across the country. Police are lobbing tear gas into crowds firing water cannon in mandalay me and mars second city. The police tried to disperse a crowd by beating them with truncheons and police are also firing rubber bullets. Three protesters are now being treated for wounds from bullets. And two people in the capital naypyidaw were shot with what seems to have been live ammunition and so as the military response ramps up our people frightened of what might happen if they continue to take the streets. Yeah i mean despite the carnival ask air of some of these protests. There is a deep sense of foreboding. Military rule only ended ten years ago so people remember how the previous junta crush dissent huge rallies took place nine hundred eighty eight and two thousand and seven and the army responded by shooting into crowds of protesters killing hundreds of people so protesters today are right to be worried. And they're alive. The fact that the military regime is up to his old tricks again. Agents from feared intelligence service or knocking on doors driving many activists and journalists into hiding at least two hundred people have arrested and on monday ninety districts including in the largest city and the capital impose curfews and restricted gatherings to no more than five people effectively criminalizing public assembly and last night the draft of new cybersecurity law. The government wants to pass was leaked. This would give regime sweeping powers to control the internet and effectively end free speech online so given all of those risks. Who is it that that's daring to go out into the streets. It is people from all walks of life. Teenagers labor's professionals. Lots of people are on strike teachers. Firefighters and health workers government workers are resigning en masse among them the entirety of the ministry of welfare. We saw extraordinary scenes on tuesday. The handful of officers in the police force actually broke ranks and join the protesters extraordinary because the police under the command of the army. So it's very unusual for them to be doing this and joining them yesterday. Where nearly fifty police officers from kaya state who declared their opposition to the coup. And what does it they all want. Of course they to reverse the coup they want to restore democracy and they want the release of their hero. Aung san suu cheap as well as other members of her nationally for democracy party who also been detained and do you think there's a chance that with all of this unrest who might backfire on the general's not just the response of people i suppose but also international response. It certainly hasn't been the fate of they expected. Mass resignations. i mentioned are roiling. the bureaucracy and form businesses are exiting the country so analysts saying it's going to be very difficult to see how they got some kind of status quo ante and younger generations are not going to back down easily. They're educated than they were a decade ago more organized and much more connected because of the arrival of the internet about a decade ago us leaders demands are hardening. They're talking about ending army rule altogether and scrapping the constitution which the generals wrote some activists. I interviewed said that if non violent protests fail they are bent on taking weapons and fighting when it comes to the international community in america. President joe biden said yesterday that he had approved an executive order that will pave the way for new. us sanctions. We will identify first round of targets this week. And we're also going to impose strong exports controls we're freezing. Us assets that benefit the burmese government while maintaining our support for healthcare civil society groups and other areas that benefit the people of burma directly but will these sanctions do much. Do you think. Joe biden has staked his foreign policy on reinvigorating democracy around the world. And that's why he's so keen throughout these sanctions but they are unlikely to convince the generals to change course just two years ago and nineteen the commander in chief minister lying and three other generals had sanctions placed on them by the us they proceeded with their coup. Anyway they're used to being isolated by the world and i just don't think that america's sanctions are going to convince them to change course. I feel that this conflict from the protest was in the army may be coming to ahead. The commander in chief is a deeply proud man and he will not stand by as the institution to which is dedicated to his career is humiliated by protesters and disney princess outfits at the same time. The protesters are digging in their heels. I think it's become clear that over the last week there's no returning to the quasi democracy at me and mom -joyed of the last decade either. The army cracks down and it's returned to the battle. Days of military rule or a new political system is going to emerge from the rooms of the old one. My fear is that the former scenario seems much will likely the ladder.

Who is the international community?

"Myanmar's progress towards democracy. During the two thousand and ten with nobel peace laureate aung sang suu as de facto head of government was widely understood as a good news. Story this week myanmar's military. The top madore decided that the democratic experiment had proceeded far enough claiming fraud in the most recent they threw a coup. D'etat seized power. Back and returned san suu now. Tarnished as an accessory to the tottenham does own recent accesses to detention the international community has responded predictably and in famous correctly demanding respect for the election results the restoration of constitutional order and so forth. Also this week. Us president joe biden in his first speech on foreign policy since taking office declared that america was ready willing and able to resume its traditional self awarded role as lead of that international community. But at this point what actually is the international community who decides what it thinks and are there really any penalties for defying or ignoring it. This is the foreign desk. But you're now seeing two sets of institutions governing although it's questionable how much actual authority the people without guns have to force their parliamentary decisions. At this point. The burmese military should relinquish power. They have seized release the advocates and activists and officials they have detained suspected. Criticism from western countries has relatively little direct. But it's not that they don't care at all it's noteworthy that they've gone to just extraordinary lengths to create alibis covers for the coup the very few occasions when you say that sanctions all the threat of sanctions hadn't affect i think would be the ending of the apartheid period south africa but they require cooperation and agreement among any state that has major economic relations with a particular state that is really under threat of sanctions. So that's pretty rare frontier. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew muller joined first of all by amen taunt a reporter based in yang-gon well first of all let's try and make sense of what has been occurring this week. How did the first hours of the coup ataur unfold as you experienced it. Was there a heightened military presence in the streets was a news broadcast social media alerts. How do they establish power. It's not like they lack practice this by now. Sure so the first couple hours were extremely chaotic. One was quite sure what was happening. Although most people had figured out that there was a coup so basically most people woke up on monday not being able to use their phones so there are some cards. Weren't giving them service. There was some rewards that depending on which company you are with. You have some level of service depending on where you are in the country. You had some notable service. But for me i couldn't call out and i didn't have any mobile data. Luckily i have wifi at home. Which is not true for a lot of people but yeah in the first few hours in django that weren't really military much of a military presence as far as i understand. Although in the days leading up to the coup there were some quite frightening pictures of tanks in yanko near military installations and what has gone. Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were. Previously people are largely ignoring the rules at this point in the pandemic here. But yeah like you just saw a lot of groups of people as opposed to the person who cooks which is generally a woman here but a couple hours in so maybe around nine. Ten people started panic buying especially rice. A lot of rice shops ran out of rice quite early in the morning. You know they generally never run out that bryce they usually are quite. we'll start but by the evenings. The supply chain was flowing again and had sort of compensated and the streets emptied out after a while but there was a while where people were trying to rush the banks. All the banks shut the atm set down. And then people try to. The gold shops and the gold shops started shutting down this

Boston opens warming centers this weekend as temperatures plummet

"A nor'easter is on the way, but this weekend it's the bitter cold that's causing concern. At times the windchill ushers in sub zero temperatures with exposure to that extreme cold your butt. Body temperature can plunge, potentially causing frostbite. If it's sufficiently cold and windy. It could happen within minutes. Dr. Stuart Harris of Mass General's Emergency department says. The parts of the body farthest away from the heart or the first to be susceptible to the tip of your nose, your ears your fingers and toes or ATM or risk numbness is a warning sign to pay attention to you feel cold. You feel numbness. And when you have a loss of sensation is when you especially need to get concerned. People who get in trouble with frostbite typically Have some impairment, and it can be because of alcohol or substance use psychiatric disease, and it can be sometimes just because they don't have AH, place to go and open up more than a dozen warming centers for locations and times, go to Boston dot

More EMP mp3

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kent chrome yesterday. I painted a dark picture. Should the earth's be hit by a solar flare containing electro magnetic pulses. I listed the following points affected by. Emp the power grid would go down. There would be no heaton no electricity. Atm's all online banking debit credit. Cards would be shut down. The supply chain would stop creating a shortage on foodstuff and no internet last on the list. I mentioned cars. Most cars would no longer work. Today's podcast is what you could do to protect. Your way of life should emp. Rain down. and i'll start with cars. The conventional wisdom. Is that if your car relies. On any delicate electronics it would be toast in the wake of emp attack or solar flare. This is origin of that idea. Cars built during and after the nineteen eighties are not. Emp safe however real world testing with the mp simulators has yielded mixed results regardless of which camp you fall into the bigger issue is that after a large scale. Emp flare or devastating. Coronal mass ejection. As i like to call it. It is very likely that fuel production distribution systems would be knocked off line so in the absence of some type of alternative fuel source. You would very likely find yourself stranded even if your car were to survive in. Emp in a study released two thousand four. The emp commission subjected thirty seven different cars and trucks to simulated emp and found that none of them suffered permanent crippling damage. Although the results were somewhat mixed the study subjected vehicles to simulate emp attacks both while shut off and while running and it found that none of the vehicle suffered any ill effects if the attack occurred while the engine was off the attack or the solar flare occurred while the vehicle were running some of them shut off while other suffered other effects like aronie s plinking dash lights. Although some of the engines did die when subjected tune emp each of the passenger cars tested by the emp commission. Did start back up. The study findings suggested that ninety percent of the cars on the road in two thousand four but suffer no ill effects at all for many. Emp while ten percent would either stall or suffer some other ill effects. That number has no doubt gone up in the intervening decade says. There are more cars on the road today. That make you self delicate electronics. But none of the vehicles tested by the emp commission suffered permanent damage. There are few possible reasons why the electronics in our cars may be a little bit more robust than we give them. Credit for the first. Is that the electronics. And cars and trucks are already somewhat shielded and they also tend to be a little more robust. The most consumer electronics due to the harsh conditions are subjected to while on the road another factor. That may help protect their electronics. In a car is that the metal body of the vehicle can act as a partial faraday cage. This is why you could survive your vehicle being struck by lightning. That's also why your car radio. Antennas are located outside rather than inside vehicle. Of course your car isn't a perfect faraday cage or you wouldn't be able to make and receive phone calls. We could assume the your car has a better than fifty fifty chance of surviving exposure. Emp the real issue is fuel would become less accessible. But let's leave cars on the road for now and look a communication simply. There wouldn't be any of the casual cell and landline phone calls. We'd like to make why cell towers landlines should be fried. But you notice. I said casual calls. Communication would fall to ham radio. But only those hams that were operated by generator. A battery that had been protected by faraday cage. Of course that begs the question. What the hell is a faraday cage and why would it protect discontents from emp. A faraday cage is an enclosure used to block electromagnetic fields. These cages often look distinctly. Well cage like solemn or simple as chain link fences or ice pales others use a fine metallic mesh regardless of their exact appearance. All thurday cages take electromagnetic radiation and distributed around the exterior of the cage. However your microwave can be used as a faraday cage. It might be big enough for a car or motorcycle battery if you have one of those very old like one thousand nine hundred fifty ish. Refrigerators were lead line. You could use it as a faraday cage and costly protect generator or car battery forgetting for a moment that you won't have access to fuel for your car. You won't be able to use a cell landline. Keep in mind. That country's gridwood down no electricity in your tap go dry. If you have a well you could use a bucket to retrieve water. Woodstove would provide warm possibly heat for cooking. The thought of cooking reminds that unless you have been stocking food. There would be nothing to cook in an extremely rural area. You could hunt maybe poach a cow but then can you feel dress an animal that large you know how to build a smoke house while you get water manually from your well heat cook with woodstove end up living off. What you hunted down. Storing access meat and a smokehouse. House you bill. With the hammer and nail power tools wouldn't be affected by emp but then faraday cage to protect power source for your power tools.
