But lots of calls coming in here tonight so we're going to continue With taking your calls and thoughts go first to the phones to tom. He is calling in from texarkana and tom. You're on free. Talk live listening on fm to ktf s. Go ahead. yeah how you doing. Welcome sir I listen to you guys off. And i guess default since the show here You know. I don't know there's just so many things could comment on kind of your last caller. Well if i had to pick one it would be that I was involved with. Sds and all this stuff back in the seventies. It's an all that stuff. The students for democratic society and the gainesville eight and all those people. And i can't be happier than the fact that we lost our revolution. I really hope that you guys lugers to what are you talking about. This is really a pretty good country. You hope we lose our revolution. What do you mean by that. Yeah well that You know you're very libertarian. Over the over the edge. I would say with libertarianism. And when i was your age We really were all about you. Know bringing down The powers that be in the man and all that. And it's a again. I can tell you that. I'm glad that we did not win. Hold on let me let me just check song. So you're part of the gainesville eight right because this is what you guys you throw it but you throw a a straw Argument and that don't wish the vietnam war had been ended. Well not the way it did. No you know how many vietnamese people died. How many innocent cambodian people die result of us pulling out. We came on that totally just like we just caved on afghanistan pool you believe in ongoing military occupation no i do not believe in ongoing military occupation. Okay you are listening to your show enough to understand. I teach public speaking. So i understand the way you couch arguments very well argument where i'm just trying to where you're coming from because you said you glad that you failed. That's yeah that's not an argument. It was a question to ask you a question for clarification after the vietnam war a whole bunch of hippies Abbie hoffman. And all of and i was right in there with them Trying to pull the pull the country down because we thought it sucked because of the vietnam war and all that stuff. And i'm here to tell you that. I'm glad that we failed. And you're saying you would be happy and here if the new hampshire. Libertarians fail as well. You'd be happy about that. Well i think a lot of your arguments so you know like my why wouldn't like a lot of people. Your age are are kind of almost complaining about your mom making clear rooms you know. I think that doesn't wow. So you're in ages ta college professor. That here in just is what you are. I am a better because older right. You're wiser you smarter because you're so much wiser You know the quota scripture to you rose. It says professor to be wise became fools. And that's that's where this country is heading professing to be wise so you literally just said that i am wise. Everybody who's Complain about this. Not being facetious by the way tom. Here's what i'm curious about. So are you saying. You don't think libertarian. Should have a place for themselves where they can live all. They wanna live very excellent. I'm i'm i'm very much libertarian. Okay then rectify for me. How it is how it is that you would feel good about libertarians in new hampshire failing at their movement well because jefferson and adams. All these people said that our government won't work that this country will work without a religious population with a bunch of people who believe that there is a basis for our freedom. And my friend. Here mountaineer is religious as well. The use of the word religious has changed since eighteen. Seventy or are you saying that we have to be your religion. No bracing in just to clarify are are you saying that we have to have institutionalized religion not institutionalized religion but there has to be a six point six paul reference for which all decisions are made. And we're missing that wait. Are you saying other question to clarify what you're saying there. I just gotta understand. Are you saying that everyone should be of the same religious belief system. Well i think there's only there's there's either truth or false but let me just ask you this. Are you pro-abortion if you're pro-abortion how can you be Pro immigration because fetuses are the ultimate. Emigrant comes from left field very left field. I'm in favor of freedom sur. Which means i'm in favor of freedom over your own body. So yes i think people should be able to make difficult choices with your own body. So that's actually one of the points of disagreement is some people believe that human life starts at conception. Some people like myself believe that human life starts at your first breath now. We're not going to come to an agreement but we can't agree that whatever human life is should be protected. The difference is though tom. We're not willing to put you in jail cell because we have a disagreement about the beginning of human life. And would you be willing to put us in jail cell over that no. That's not correct at all once again. You're you're hypothesizing contrary back closer. I'm asking you a question normally okay. Obviously we're not women but if we were women would you. Would you want to put us in jail cell for having an abortion. Well you know. I wrote an article one time. Because people love the feminists were complaining about the Supreme court being in their vaginas. And i pointed out that it's not the supreme court it's sperm and your vagina. that causes praise. You didn't answer the question. can you answer the question. A simple question because it's irrelevant. It's it's totally a. It's quite relevant because a lot of people want to outlaw. Abortion is that would that include you. I think abortion is totally wrong. Yes i think. It's totally hideous. You're saying outlawing. Abortion would be totally hideous or abortion itself hideous the fact of abortion the fact so therefore. Would you be in favor of outlawing abortion six to how many people have abortions because of rape and incest is like one or two. Okay but would you be in favor of outlawing abortion. Yes i'm favorable so therefore would you be in favor of putting a woman who has an abortion in a jail cell. Maybe not the one who is the person who performs it. Yeah okay so you wanna put doctors in jail cells for performing abortions well because it's anti freedom and anti choice and people who who went to the Washington on january sixth in jail. You're not a libertarian. In any way shape or form in my book because people should be able to make define. What a libertarian is. Then.
Wet Notes - 9-27-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for monday. September twenty seventh two thousand and twenty one first up. I want to congratulate tech clark and a dive locker. Podcast on celebrating the second anniversary for those who don't know about this. Podcast tech. Started this to help die professionals with various topics and techniques. But it's not just for dive professionals. I remember listening to the first episode. Way back in two thousand nineteen just before dima that year i've come to look forward to each weekly episode tech plans to keep the show going and has teed up a lot of great new content for the year year ahead. So i'd encourage you to check out the dive locker podcast. There's a lot of great information and perspective on things that hopefully will give you something to think about. Scuba shack is a proud patron of the dive locker. By the way tech also hosts a podcast titled the league of extraordinary divers. Where you can listen to some of the giants of our industry. Great job tech. Keep it coming now. I don't know what it is. But i seem to be a sucker for a message in a bottle story. So here's another one this time. The story involves a bottle that was washed up on the shores of the big island of hawaii. The bottle started his journey thirty seven years ago from japan and it was put in the water by school children. As part of an experiment in monitoring ocean currents the number of bottles were cast into the ocean in nineteen eighty-four from choshi highschool hawaii's about six thousand kilometers or four thousand three hundred miles from the launch point now. The bottle was found by abbie graham while her family was visiting a beach near hilo. It is estimated that about seven hundred and fifty of these bottles were tossed into the ocean between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty five. The last time one was found was in two thousand and two on kake. Jima island overall. The bottles have been found in seventeen. Different locations including okinawa the philippines china and even the west coast of the united states. I just get fascinated by these stories and often wonder just how many messages in bottles are out there in the ocean now. Last week we got an email from the clearly clearly came in resorts and it wasn't good. News clearly came in resorts include cobalt coast on grand cayman. Little came beach resort and cayman. Brac beach resort. The news informed us that the cayman borders will remain closed until two thousand twenty two. Now that's tough at a recent press conference to premier indicated that phase. Three of the original plan will start sometime. In february given the rise in cove in nineteen cases the resorts are now planning on opening on february. Fifth two thousand twenty two. Now this has been a really tough situation. If you remember way back in april i reported that the plan was to open in late april or early may two thousand and twenty one. It's been a long and difficult road for a lot of places. Surely the caymans are feeling abroad. We hope it gets resolved before october. Twenty twenty two trip yet. That on certain there's been a great deal of communication coming from tom. Ingram the president and ceo of dima the dive equipment marketing association regarding the two thousand twenty one show in las vegas. Tom unequivocal be states. That the show has absolutely no plans. Of cancelling now they did indicate that accordance with the local health mandates. Everyone will be required to wear a mask on the exhibit floor. There are several large past exhibitors. Who are forgoing the show this year causing some to question whether it should even take place. I know we've been getting a lot of surveys from our vendors as to whether we plan to go or not right now matt and i will be there. Tom indicated that it would be extremely difficult to cancel at this late date. Given the contracts that are in place and that if it were cancelled it would seriously impact demon's ability to put on these shows in the future. So we're looking forward to a successful show this year out in las vegas and finally today. I wanna talk about a piece of underwater camera gear that you might just want to consider. There was an article from sport diver magazine by john widow titled great camera accessories for underwater photography. It was a scuba lab review of the products that the staff took diving at alexander springs in central florida. First on the list was a sea life. Sport diver smartphone housing. Now that's pretty cool. I can remember my first. Underwater camera was sealife. Reef master with a whopping three mega pixels now. This housing will fit a number of iphones and android smartphones.

"A stranger on the internet. We are owed answers. And i think so much of i mean the most generous read. True crime to talk is that they're answering for a gap in policing and perhaps the resources and time they spend devoted to parsing over what song gabby petito is listening to spotify could instead be devoted to pushing police departments.

"To like get out But we. I mean we had a lot of international cast a lot of new people. I mean we drank a lot but it looks like a lot but it's you're sharing four bottles of wine with thirty for people. That sounds ridiculous to any any wine drinker. Hey who do you want me to share this with the rationale a drop like so on double agent. Leroy didn't drink. He probably had like abbie or maybe the whole time because he was really focused on keeping his body like super clean and training. Fast wasn't drinking Like there were certain people that had their reasons for it and people that just don't drink period but i mean everyone was working out so that as hard as they worked out as probably as hard as they partied. I was also wondering about what it's like to be a contestant when so year one of the oh jeez. Did you ever feel like they've compromised. The purity of the show by hobby people from other television networks other shows. I don't really watch reality television. So it's I don't know a lot of the people they do. Bring on at first. I was like who are these people but now that real world and road rules like our core casting grounds have been wiped out. You know the had to pick from other other shows and you're gonna wanna up the and you're going to. I mean they have to be progressive to they. Can't you know production can't sit back in the good. You know the gold narrow and like stay. Stay there and watch other shows you know. Pass the by they have. We are the kind of show that we are for a reason. A yes there are a bunch of but i like having a bunch of new people because it adds another layer of complexity. It does make it hard field to tell. Tell the story and still show a lot of competition because of that. I mean they're finding away this season but it is. I think people really enjoyed the challenge because it was like okay like we don't get real run. A morbid we get you here like we can still relate. We still know who you are where you came from and i think that's the part it is a nostalgia. It is that lake. I remember her when she was nineteen and look at her at twenty five and look at her thirty and thirty five and still doing this shit. This is incredible. Set of like. Oh loses twenty-three-year-old. You won you won. What show you met someone for five minutes. Thought you were loved. Gotcha you hooked up with twenty five girls. Gotcha bat show. You know what the viewers loved back then and and now but but doesn't that kind of crossover into your the relationships with the other veterans. I mean don't have sense of loyalty to them in a way you're not going to to someone who's twenty three and from some show you've never heard of. Yeah yeah. I mean unless it's better has has totally Ruined our friendship and Kind of has been disloyal. And yeah i would. I would choose my brothers and sisters over the new kids shore.

I can't tell you how long i was there. Oh i mean are you. How does show. You're getting a show. That's ten to twelve week. Sal okay yeah with quarantine so once that season's over are you always thinking okay. I'm gonna wait for the next call to calm. Can you have another job in. The meantime is you always feel like you're living on the on the fly oven school and i always worked when i was on the show so i was a dancer for fourteen years. I mean people knew about that. So that's not really a secret maybe to some people but It gave me the financial freedom to do whatever i wanted It also allowed for me to go on the show and it'd be like saving locker. I'll be back I'd leave for a couple of months. I take a month off before. I go back to work. Work is heavy Takes a really really thick skin to do what i what i did for so long And then Bartender little bit inbetween and then went back on the show.

I said no to so i can finish school and there are ones where i didn't fit the theme and i could finish school They're ones where. I had to take a leave of absence to go back on the show and then finished my semester. When i got back. So i've been able to kind of finagle my way through but I've never never sat waiting for it. You know i've always always been like hustling trying to make money trying to get my education while doing this because this isn't going to last forever but school is always going to be there.

I was so birthed on the game is like i mean i. I got a little bit more to do. But i'm just kinda kinda over at the moment so we'll see we'll see what they do with this season.

She would wake me up and tell me that. I should be doing something around the house rather than just sleeping. Even though she knew that i worked overnights and other times it would be abby waking me up to quote unquote just showing me. Something on her father on her computer. When i had just managed to get to sleep and i had that evening again. She was putting me in a head. Space where i was exhausted and we are. I felt like they were stepping in on my personal space. When i really didn't appreciate it and it got to the point where i would close my door and drag a bookcase in front of to keep it closed. And anytime they tried to get office the bookcase would stop them and they would affronted and be like. Oh what are you doing day. You and i would use the excuse of oh. I'm sorry it's from the moment that guy broke into our house. I feel really unsafe. They would sort of back off first few days and then start again and then it would be things like i would be taking off and just listening to music and abby would knock on the door and tell me that i needed to get out of the tub and drive has some land and tell him no. I am quite literally in the bathtub. I'm not getting out by your mother drive you. All you catch the bus and she would keep like banging down the door screaming that no you have to drive the right now and it got to the point where i fell into the head space. It's easier not to argue. So i just do things. I wouldn't be happy about it. I wouldn't even complain about it. I just be silent. I was like a zombie at that point. But i do it. I'd get out of the bath drive myself off and get dressed and drive her somewhere. That was completely insignificant and on the way they should be so kind and she'd tell me all through the mcdonalds drive through l. by you some food and it was very clear that she'd met to get somewhere in a hurry. Etel unfortunately in the middle of two thousand thirteen. I got really sick turned out. I had hooping cough even when i was sick and unable to move further than the bathroom and back without having a fit of coughing and trying to brief moment come home in us by the dishes. Went on or why i hadn't mode the lorne and i would sort of look at her like i can't breathe. I'd love to do the dishes. But i physically count. But no she would see that his an excuse and then supervise me. While i did these things i wasn't eating well. I wasn't sleeping well. I was still dragging my bookcase in front of the door. And by this point had been over six months that i was living here. And when i suggested hey. We had an agreement for six months they would ask me all. But don't you love living here. We get along so well but eventually it came to a head and we had another flat meeting and it turned out to be. Two hours of abbie's mum basically screaming at me about how i wasn't pulling my weight and the flats two hours of abbey's mums screaming until spit flew from l. And abby looking very disappointed in me and eventually abbie's mom suggested and quotes. If you don't change for us you can move out. And i saw my lifeline. And i grabbed it. I said all right. I'm handing in my two weeks notice as of right now and in two weeks i am losing out and i think that took them back a little bit because they didn't expect you to push back. I think they expect to be to cala and to apologize and to claim that i'd do anything in my power to change for them. But i didn't abbey's mum was completely just stricken. She had no idea what to do anything. She spoke for about two minutes. Because i had shocked her. So much abbey was looking at me like a fish out of water and then she stood up and started crying in telling me how she loves me so much. And why won't i change her. Don't i love her enough to change. the face and said no i. I'm moving out two weeks. I could see the tension inherited see that she was fisting a hand asides and she was about to pull back and i really wanted a hit me at that point because that meant that i call the police and get it done for salt and obviously realized the same thing and so she told her to back off. They backed off. I took my stuff to my room. Lock the dole pulled the bookcase over etcetera. That was a moment where i felt clear for the first time in months where i felt this sort of manic power of getting some sort of control of my life again and seeing the reactions may be so happy just a really sort of vile unpleasant way but it made me so happy to have shut them up for a change. I had someone at work who had dealt with a tendency disagreements before and so she helped me draft up a written contract that i was leaving the house so that it was on paper and they needed to sign them and i remember i lift the contracts on the kitchen island just with the little posted not saying hi. Please sign this so we can get the proceedings going. Thanks and i remember. I was in my room. And i had abbie's mom come home and then i ask off. And then i hit paper. Tearing and i realized that she's ripped up the contract and toss it in the beden a lot of the things that when mine were in the shade areas so my television. Dvd player for instance for in the living room for everyone to use so. I ended up packing some clothes that i would need for work. My laptop my more fries positions. And i basically slipped at.

Diving More Deeply Into Diversity
"Welcome to this special episode of. Yeah that's probably an ad. I'm coat m. your community editor and this week is a really special one. We have some inspiring guests in our room with us as it is black history month and as we continue these important conversations about race racial injustice social justice within our marketing and advertising communities so I'd like to introduce jason. Rosario who is chief diversity equity and inclusion At bbdo worldwide gabriel director of global diversity and inclusion at abercrombie and fitch company and jasmine cruise brand manager at beach. La and head of marketing and brand strategy at in her shoes movement. Thank you so much guys for being with me today I have excited to chat absolutely so before we kind of dive deeply into the conversation Let's start with jason Tell us more about kind of what you do. And what you're trying to do such a question i'll try my best to answer it as distinctly as possible. But i think i'm a jack of many trades but specifically at bbdo. My remit is to lead a global diversity efforts across the network on an enterprise level. And so what that means is to. My job is to figure out how we might be able to apply inclusive principles to every aspect of the organization from recruiting and retention and partnering with hr on kind of core cultural diversity equity inclusion initiatives. All the way through to pot a week rate more inclusive representative Client output in. How do we advise our clients to think through these lenses if you will so Broadly speaking that's my role Outside of that. I'm an advocate for a masculinity in mental health I started a or launched. An agency called the lives of men which uses the conversation around modern masculinity to explore. has implications on diversity equity and inclusion allied ship and the intersection of those conversations and mental health. So that is a sickness. I can put it Thank you for all that you do in the various spaces that you're a part of What about you gabby Where are you at with this new gig in terms of What you're trying to do within nf yet. I've been A diversity equity inclusion blinding practitioner for the last ten years in really this new hampshire with. Nfl has been really really exciting. discussed really the more fascinating part to me In having an opportunity to lead the effort goes beyond just diversity as a practitioner For me it's really all the other parts that keep me up at night The parts that would influence Candidates employees associates to wanna stay within an organization. So it's really around the side of the house that deals more with inclusion More equitable workforce building that sense of cultural belonging in an organization. And that means that are focused. Can't just beyond diversity for the sake of boxes but migiro really is rather to try and influence and create the type of environment where employees associates feel that they can bring their full selves to work each and every day in creating more accessible equitable workforce and in addition to that. I mean you know abercrombie and fitch. It's really really interesting. Time to work in the space where our mission is really been dedicated to amplify engaging in power empowering folk small different backgrounds and really foster in an open environment where folks can come together. Listen learn and really take action to move from conversations toward action and influencing the products that we're creating to reflect our global customer so it's been really fascinating You know i start my career in higher education working in nyu and columbia then pivoted to citi group Leading our diversity inclusion efforts early career talent and then transitioning to the fashion industry which is really really exciting opportunity to make a make an impact end create product that has the opportunity to create social change right across our across our communities in really interesting way. I have so many questions About kind of what you all have seen so far but first jazzman How do you include that d. i. lens as somebody who's on the agency side and also trying to you know achieve more equity in the greater world. Yeah i. I'm just so to be part of this conversation and hearing from jason gabby amongst inspiring folks so I think as an account manager really partnering with clients and but also partnering with leadership in how we infused diversity equity inclusion not just from an internal perspective but so that emanates within How we partner with clients We just ensuring that yes. We're being responsible and that brands are being responsible but also Figuring out how what we can do to not just check the box like abbie said but actually make tangible change. And so i think for me personally. It's just something that i've always been about which led me to Being part of the in her shoes movement A nonprofit base-year l. a. And so i have this unique Intersection where i get to see What does social impact look like from grassroots Point of view but then also in my day job like how. How can we partner with clients in doing this. Great work in continuing this great work especially with brands that wants to create

"In many cases, where there are many One of the people was Abbie Hoffman, and about a year later he came after you. I was a student at U. N B. C at the time, and about a year later he came out to you NBC to speak, and One of his interesting thing was he wasn't out inside. They didn't give him access to an arena. So I don't know who funded it them to come in, But he spoke in a courtyard outside. Uh, which was kind of uneventful that not too many people turned out, but one of his famous lines was Dempsey hits the spot, and he was There was a commercial at the time, and he was kind of mimicking, like throwing a Molotov cocktail. So that was the highlight of his speech. Which was, you know, while social media does all these purges David Bill Ayers, a guy who actually was involved in bombing the U. S Capital is still available to tweet to his heart. I know one of his buddies. It's SSM a zing. It's amazing the double. It's the double standards. I don't care if they if they held themselves to standards and held the right to those standards, I'd be fine with it. But that no Democrat has condemned anything That happened over the summer. And when Joe Biden finally got around to it after about six weeks and and when it started showing up in the polls and said pull all political violence is wrong. He was both sides in the issue. He was saying that all political violence is wrong. He wasn't condemning BLM antifa by name. He never did. A said Antifa was just in idea, not people, which is weird to people who are beaten up by an idea. I guess they Didn't realize it at the time, but it's it's the hypocrisy. I was just gonna have real quick. Ironically, that gave the election that Nixon was very close. Humphrey probably would have won if it hadn't been for all the writing in Chicago. You might have and Mayor Daley's response to it and the nightly videos of police beating the hell out of protesters and writers and writers being the hell out of of police. It was Complete mess, and it probably would have repeated itself this year last year had it not been for covert. I appreciate the call David. The left was riled up and they would have been at the Democratic convention in Minneapolis. They would have. I don't fit in Minneapolis or you know it was Milwaukee. But it didn't happen. So since it was virtual, there was nobody to punch. Start to Tom and Pikesville. Hello, Tom. They'll have even very good. How are you talking? I'm concerned. It seems the man with You obvious intelligence with continue to back. Oh, Don't trump Donald grabbed by the ground Trump, you know, I know. I understand that you people always think that the main media is conspiring to Discussed. Trump Trump in the negative, negative man and I don't see how anybody could back that movement. With this room, cruise, abusive van. Politically by Trump, and then I'm just sort of send it and he's been actually whether works whether that's I think we've ever had. I'm not a historian, but I think he's one of the worst with everybody. What you're basing the worst presidency on What am I basing? What time? He just said he was one of the worst presidents ever would be basing it on. Well, I'm based on what I know what? Because they're so far. I'm considering people like okay, well, they've all been really bad people if you want to get down to it, or most of them really bad people who wouldn't want to be married to him. But I'm talking about policy wise. What about his policies? Did you do you think that we're terrible? It made him the worst. Well, I think the one act whether what how you wouldn't want to compared, I think the one act of his encouraging that Roger was a is enough. To see that his Vegas he was always being so if I played you audio of him at the giving that speech on Wednesday, saying that they're going to go down to the Capitol and peacefully expressed themselves which will that change your mind?

'The West Wing' enlists big names for its When We All Vote reunion special
"Thanks. I'm a big fan of Aaron Sorkin and tell us why This is a good time for me in television, because I like him so much. He absolutely if you didn't watch it yesterday, a cz, always with streaming. You can watch it at your leisure. But yesterday they dropped on HBO, Max. Ah, Special reunion of the West Wing cast is probably his most legendary TV show The West Wing and gathered almost everybody from the cast for Martin Sheen and Allison Janney and Rob Lowe and so forth. To recreate an episode from one of the early seasons as a theatrical staged event in an empty theater, But they filmed it like it was a play and it was in that shifted from scene to scene and it was really cleverly done, but also just reminded you how Wonderful that Siri's wass and how inspirational it was, even though it was about politics. So if the dueling if the dueling town halls and so you may be this would've last night, but it's still out there, but even more so today, Netflix drops another Aaron Sorkin project. Which he wrote and directed. It's called the Trial of the Chicago Seven, and it goes back to the sixties, when those counterculture figures Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale and others were put on trial for inciting the riots that disrupted the 1968 Democratic convention. It was a big media circus, and this film looks like it's got it all and including a terrific cast, including two Emmy winners from this season. Jeremy strong from succession and one of the stars of watchman job doing the team. They're playing two of the defendants. You also have frankly, Angela's The judge and Michael Keaton's in there. Sasha Baron Cohen's in there. Doing dramatic bit, and it just sounds like again. Aaron Sorkin is knows his way around a courtroom. If you remember his very first big hit was a few good men. So if you like Aaron Sorkin style you've got two choices was like a double whammy of Aaron Sorkin this week. Now?

New Borat Movie Coming Soon
"Another movie that was announced this week out of nowhere and will be arriving in our homes in. Two days is. A new movie the name of this borat movie is Borat Colon Gift of pornographic monkey to vice premier Mikhail pens to make benefit recently diminished nation of Kazakhstan. We just saw trailer for this movie this of course, the Sasha Baron Cohen vehicle in which he portrays a Cossack man who is visiting America to learn about it's I don't know it's it's trials it's tribulations it's rituals it's it's fallacies it's difficulty it's humor and I don't know if we needed another borat movie either I think the first Borat movie is one of the great movies of twenty-first-century at least one of the great movie stunts of the twenty first century that being said I I would happily receive this today I really have a problem with it I think it's interesting. The Sasha. Who is about to begin an Oscar campaign for his role as Abbie Hoffman in the trial of the? CHICAGO. Seven. has also decided to almost simultaneously release a Borat Movie I. Think that could work in two directions for him. Certainly, it will make him more famous. Again, it will put more people. A brighter light on him at this moment but also it could work to undermine his seriousness as a performer because. Or at is Borat. Yes I my reaction to this was on the one hand I'll take any new movie that I can get at this point in two thousand twenty but on the flip side. Do, we need this particular movie right now and. Recently, I, guess I'M GONNA announce this on this podcast. I made a letterbox profile. Everyone. You broke me I. Did it okay. Congratulations. Is your is your top row just Borat four times. So instead of watching. Recent, live news events. I just like hit in a room and indexed on my letterbox profile every single movie that I've watched I. Think I think I made it back to like may anyway one of the movies that I put on that profile was resistible. Jon Stewart movie and I did not give it a great rating and I was thinking about that movie and just how of its time it felt by by which I mean two, thousand, six, two, thousand, seven like that. Jon Stewart era and how much that rubbed both of us the wrong way and I can't help. Feeling that Borat. which was released in two thousand and six might just be a two thousand, six cultural product that doesn't really speak to twenty twenty in the same

"Seven. Three comment Nah pasture some aleinu promenade San. Which means how are you? I'm feeling happy right now because we went for a walk this morning. That usually makes me feel relaxed. What makes you feel relaxed and happy? Maybe it's doing something kind for someone. We have a couple of kindness stories today from listeners who wanted to share about a time. Someone did something kind for them. I here's Abbie Hi my name's Adam. Sold. I live in Neil, you are. and. Reo. Kindness scarring. His one. Man Arrow on the beach. and.

I listened to it almost every night. Peace Out and peace within. Thanks Amelia. How lucky you are to have your mom able to help you with your schoolwork. Thank you for sharing. A lot of parents and caregivers are now having to do a lot more helping with online school assignments. There are many things that can be frustrating about being home right now. which is why responding with kindness is more important than ever. When we react to something, someone sadder done without thinking about it. It could lead to a saying or doing something that will hurt others. And while it might make you feel good for a little bit. I'm willing to bet that feeling won't last long. However! If we take an extra moment or two to think about how we will respond that lets us think about how to make better choices in our actions and gives us time to choose helpful, not hurtful words. Even when it's hard. It might help to remind yourself to take some deep breaths before saying or doing anything. Give it a try next time. Here's one more kindness story. That was sent an e-mail. It says hi. My name is Armani. I am nine years old. I listened to peace out every night. It all started on my second day at my new school. I had no one to play with. I came up to emily. She is now my best friend. I asked her if I could play with her. And of course she said yes. ps, I love the science episodes. Thank your money.

It's fun to read up and Research on constellations and g odes, and for this episode. Salmon! I learned so much writing these stories to. Thanks again to everyone who sent in a kindness story. We will definitely listen and read each one and reply, but it just might take some time. All right, let's get started everyone. Let's sit up in a comfortable position.

"Uber. Making a bid for GRUB and shares of GRUB hub ended on Tuesday up nearly thirty percent down a little bit today but these conversations are ongoing before we get into the particulars. What what was your reaction when you saw that because mine was there are some acquisitions that in the moment you look at them and you think to yourself. Well that makes perfect sense for me. This isn't one of them. But what do you think? Well I don't know if it's something I would say makes perfect sense but I do see the connection there. I mean I certainly see why Uber would be thinking in this direction in and I think that for rub this this could be. Maybe the best way out. I mean the economics food delivery a really tough we've certainly seen that in grubs margins and financial since it's been a publicly traded company and in unfortunately it's not a market that really rewards exclusive relationships. I mean people are just looking to get their food from point. A. Point B. in restaurants. WanNa be able to do that and make sure they can rely on the partners that are delivering that food. So for me like I as I said this is not a market that rewards exclusive relationship so we saw for example when shake shack. Release their earnings here last week. They had exited an exclusive relationship. With GRUB HUB in. We're utilizing more partners. Uber eats be one of those from the restaurants perspective. You know they want to try and bring as many of those partners as they can as they can but it is it is it is. It is a market where you're certainly seeing consolidation. Almost needs to happen because otherwise it's going. It's going to be really difficult for a lot of players to be successful in space. You could see where maybe a couple of players could be successful successful in this space in. I think that with with Uber. We've always asked the question. How ARE THEY GONNA? Levers that network beyond just you know shuttling. People around in Uber eats is definitely one of the ways to do that. Uber eats is certainly performing pretty. Well I mean in in quarter one. They generated four point. Seven billion dollars in gross bookings that was up. Fifty fifty four percent from a year ago in revenues accelerating in that line of work take rates are accelerating as well so. I mean. They're seeing a lot of success for obvious reasons right now. I mean folks are are looking to have more food delivered But but I think with with GRUB HUB. This might just represent the best opportunity for the business and for shareholders because otherwise. They're going to be stuck in this perpetual battle for very very incremental prophets. Right I mean it. It is just not a super high margin business and you know for restaurants they delivery now more than ever So I think I think that will probably continue on for some time. But it's definitely a space where consolidation is starting to happen in. I actually could see grub hub in Uber getting together there in creating really a massive food delivery network that even really extends beyond restaurants right. I mean Breezes Inc Grocery for example they have I think what four thousand parts and thirty five countries with with Comey's car for for example at Cisco I mean they're leveraging that network in good ways and I think this is a sign of things that could a sign of things to come for Uber? That could be good. I mean it's obviously still hemorrhaging cash. And they're gonNA raise some more debt. It sounds like but if this is a deal that happens. It sounds like it'd be an all stock deal another kind of hemming and over the valuation. But I wouldn't be surprised to see this happen. It's funny. You mentioned that talking with our colleague Abby Malan and she's a grow up shareholder and she made it very clear to me. She's not interested in Uber Stock. She was happy to see the spike. In growth hub shares. She would much rather prefer this. Be A cash deal. Because she's not looking for Uber Stock. But it'll be interesting to say to see how the valuation shakes out here because right now with this spike and a little bit of a pullback today grubs valuation is five point three billion. They've said they would sell at evaluation of six point. One billion so that's another fifteen percent upside from. Where is here? It is and you know I mean. These companies will go through negotiations to try to figure out what makes the most sense and that's kind of Nice part about all stock transactions for the come from the company's perspective right. They're essentially just they don't have to dole out physical currency right. I mean shares are currency. But it's not really affecting their pocketbook. Investors are kind of the ones that potentially at screwed there and in. I do feel like Abbie. I agree with that. I'm not really interested in an Uber. Uber's stock today. I mean I think it's a fascinating business to follow. I'm cautiously optimistic. That they will be able to leverage that network overtime in do more things with it. But I think it's GonNa take a while in they clearly. It's GonNa take a long time for them to even achieve any meaningful profitability. So yeah I mean from from the company's perspective that all started you'll makes perfect sense from the investors perspective. Yes I'm a shareholder in this ends up happening then I get you know those. Those Uber Uber shares. For that deal. I probably would look at it going ahead and selling those uber shares and putting that money to work elsewhere. Because any way you put it I mean food deliveries just. It's just a really tough business. I mean we saw not all that long ago we're square on loaded the The caviar side of the business right I mean they. They dipped a toe in that market thinking that might be something complementary to their business. It turned out it really wasn't turns out. It's just really hard work. It wasn't something that lined up or leveraged their existing business to the degree they felt like made sense in so I think yeah I mean this kind of it makes me think a little bit of satellite radio in your head series. Xm and Yeah Sirius Radio and yet XM radio and then they merged to form the one big provider in that space. I mean I ultimately could could honestly see being just like a one or two really big providers in the space but time will tell.
Concerns over new mothers and babies during COVID-19
"They even though they've been classified as vulnerable group. Pregnant women have so far not shown themselves to be particularly vulnerable to the extremities of coveted non team. But there's no doubt that pregnancies and births around the world have been disrupted even in Australia. Pregnant women have missed out on important appointments and support services like mother's groups and birthing classes and for women who've been suspected or tested positive for the virus pregnancy and childbirth has been traumatic Catherine Gregory reports that maternal health experts are now looking at how to prevent any long lasting impacts. These pandemic could have on new mothers and their babies look. It wasn't sure she'd get to hear these miraculous. Sounds my waters break? I was thirty one weeks and six days so we came to the hospital. Thirty seven year olds spent the night Victorian Maternity Hospital by herself. Luckily I didn't gone to live within the next morning. I recall my husband and he left in a hurry but husband never got further than the hospitals front desk. You can't come into also and you need to get checked for carbon scandal. Has He was about to enter and found he had a favor. Sorry basically like a really sorry you husbands not going to be for the lie in ways to treat you like you have carbon sorry smashed up and secluded up. And that's when Abby Real nightmare began. She was facing childbirth alone. I'm by the side. A little bit of pioneer. That asked with some high relief and will live. You can't have guests now because you might have carbon then the stock transferred into special boosting room an isolated one by that stage. They checked me. I was now ten centimeters dilated and there was going to be our pain relief at all and now husband merciful person. Sorry I started freaking out a little bit and then came be pays Yoda me. We'd no drugs. I think I just Kinda ran into shock. Mars surreal experience. And because because you early doctors in the room whiting just standing there waiting to take him as soon as he was born only had thirty seconds with her newborn baby before nurses took him offer. Say I took them up to spatial. Katya and I was taken to isolation in the world so it's about three or four one of the midwives came in and she was almost in tears and I said I know you're GonNa Seiger's narrowing are it's we have the results yet. It's just I have to tell you the results come back positive until you've Corinthian Stralia. Since the pandemic began about half a dozen women who've been suspected tested positive for the virus have given birth in conditions similar to Abbey's it's brutal bought needs to protect doctors nurses and other patients from the virus overseas in countries with pandemic has been far worse the restrictions on more extreme lawyers and human rights advocates. In the United States a pushing the legally mandated. Birthing rights. Face ain't too many women even those that aren't sick. New York especially have been forced to give birth alarm and then separated from their baby here in Australia. Each Spain less of an issue hospitals have tried to ensure covered. Moms and Bob stay together but now as the virus appears to a Bite. Maternity experts a worried about the long term impacts of some of these measures. But it's really important that we don't intrude on oil impact on human rights. That are not necessarily going to be beneficial or even potentially harmful. That's Professor Hannah. Dolon from the School of Nursing Midwifery at Sydney University. Though I am concerned West some facilities are suggesting that the woman be accompanied by nobody not even have pa. We have had some concerning reports. Where Pediatricians Indiana technologists recommending in the case of cove in nineteen being a confirmed that the woman be separated from her baby And then there are some other things such as being excluded from water birth or not having it available at all in a hospital or not having guests in air. That are not necessarily based on strong evidence Jason's days reports are mainly coming from private hospitals. And she's heard of cases where partners aren't allowed in operating theatres for C. Sections even if there is no risk. The thing is while the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and gynecologists have issued guidance. The health practitioners. There's no standard approach across different hospitals. Health districts in states then needs to be some level of adherence particularly to the international guidelines. So one of the very concerning bits is where mothers and babies are separated when that strongly recommend that they have skin-to-skin all of the recommendations have come out saying that women should have a support person with her at. That's very concerning. When we see deviations I ask her about Abbie's experience I can tell you as a midwife hearing the Midwest speaking that they're the points we john heartbreaks. 'cause it's the last thing we want to do. All of us in on the planet at the moment with the best way forward. Sometimes we get it right.
How Dreams Kicks Off PS4's Exciting 2020
"My name. Of course Johnson. Norman I'm joined by Lucy O'Brien as well as from media molecule abby. Happy and Trevan Ready. Thank you so much both for joining us. Of course we're here in the week of dreams is launch. It's finally here. It's after pretty lengthy but very exciting early access period coming into the launch. And I think just to start things off of how are you both in house. The studio feeling dreams as much. How is that and I mean we? I feel good yeah. I'm armie law. It's being that early. Access is being was the first of the access we ever have done. And the Ho- phase itself has Bain nine. We've learned loads just seen so much and it's like getting to the stage where we're actually opening it up to brought a new audience with which really hard it fixing loads of the bugs adding new features and so yeah. It feels a little bit like that moment the night before so few it is Super Proud of the community and the team everything that they've done but yeah it's it's it's exciting the community in particular like we we add. We've talked about it. In previous beyond episodes right she's slightly obsessed with the dreams community primarily because you know video game communities these aunt always known for being the most positive spaces and believe it or not you first and the dreams community is sore positive and is creating such incredible stuff and I I just I mean. Has that helped you from day. One just that that spirit that that community is head. Yeah I mean. Of course it's it's it's such a I mean it just today what we I mean it. Just last week we can break the fourth wall. Yeah but the the community did this amazing thing where everybody just made videos for us telling us what dreams meant them and it was like I woke up. I cried a lot of For watching every single one of them and and looking at the response on twitter but it was just it just you know it was a community member gentleman Tom and Dori who organized nice to it and it's just like it's amazing. That kind of stuff is like gives you what you need to keep going and doing things because this isn't just you know a a launch. It's like we. We have so many other things coming dreams and we have so much support that we keep planning keep the wiki planning to give it and you know to get that kind of a response back because because like incredibly heartening and I think it's easy to sort of forget like when your heads down and you're working hard who you're doing it for and our community never let us do route. which is amazing was there? I saw those What dreams mean to me videos? I assume was that a surprise to the. Yeah that's what I saw. Aw Did yeah yeah we did things like say project. Genesis made a trailer the other day which was just as brilliant trailer and same thing shot but then this morning it was just like Abbie was like you're not gonNa make it through through a minute. Yeah Good Luck Yeah. Yeah it's a after the team. The team on twitter have been ACA. I feel so far. We are far away from them right now but like I'm so happy for them that all of the work that we've put in they get to experience this kind of response on so big. Thank you to gorgeous community but yeah that's it it's been really lovely and it's kind of been like that since day. One really Beta and prior to that with hatch. Let's talk to us about like the length of time. Dreams is taken and make a lot of these people being with us on that journey and have just cheated US along so it's kind of felt like the media molecule pule. Drains team is much larger than most of us in the studio because it should have been on it with us. Yeah Yeah it's it's it's cool. I have a question turn on that. She won't because I remember when I was still living in sitting and do you remember I remember. This was so many years ago. Or so when I host thing Eh bar I think it was. It was in Sydney's I and it was like when dreams was it was is it was a reality but it was still it was early days. Yeah so we were talking about it still very conceptually. There wasn't a huge amount of light. This is exactly exactly what it is. This is what it looks like this play. It was still very much like this is what we want to make. And this is where our heads are at. And this is what our ideas and dreams Sort of looking you know so close to launch is it is it. What you envision back then? The final product talks has it. I mean I can only imagine. It's changed dramatically from what you imagined. It's that plus so much more. Aw I think the thing that we were talking about back then was we. Were showing snippets of Gameplay of characters wondering around scenes We had like Maya was also with me and she was demonstrating sculpting and kind of showing the versatility of that. And the puppets. So that phase. Yeah you're right. It was still the point where we hadn't had the eclipse the thing I call the eclipses like this moment hand waving and talking is eclipsed by what you actually see on the screen and what you can experience and when I think that you know we got to the point where the tools were doing everything we could see stuff from the internal team in the crater Alpha but it really was the access where that where I think ought be. Oh a real sense that all that stuff we'd spoken about in Jillions of meetings way back when about flow state and performance and creativity and ballet and like all these like just had lots of conversations about how do you create tools allow people to put their style up onto the screen and suit of genre. Ben See not kind of just in one place and if I think about those conversations to now too early access like it's amazing. It's the PASTA DREAMS THAT IS A. I'm you know I think an amazing place debate. You know like every we see everything from the Polish games all the way through to the fringe see stuff and even beyond that. So it's like it's it's like so awesomely emotional dream Surf Jeff. Just so we do a lot of South Dakota so being between all the game with that early access period. was there anything in particular because obviously you were putting up these tools for the first time in letting that community on master to finally get their hands on. was there anything in particular or a few things that really stuck out to you to your development that surprised you that the community was doing with these tools. Like there's yeah of course I mean the short answer is of course I mean long answers. There's just so many things and so many people that I could highlight like the people who use it and really different ways. Tannock alloys always always really interesting because he takes sort of I call them sort of like the magician of dreams because he relies on these tricks with a camera and other stuff to you know sort of make dreams do things like make you know balls roll from one end of the screen to the other when you move it or he made like a pool table that when he turned his TV. Flat and Rena Yeah like he's just made like really clever. Yeah he made a violin with the with the Dias and so you know people using it and really in creative ways like that. I think is always surprising. There's a few people who took the tools Robots who did the gate like that was something we looked at when like I. Don't oh how that's
XRP - The Remittance Standard? with Bitso CEO Daniel Vogel
"Welcome back it's another episode of all opinions in Celsius at two bit idiots and really excited to chat with someone that I met six years ago and the crypto seen work with Pass now at any Vogel who is the CEO. APP itself the one of largest largest or one of the largest bitcoin exchanges in Mexico in one of the largest are men's companies. Now Extras. We're a little bit about the use. Latin American scene because they're expanding beyond just Mexico as well Or our Talk about the team. Were generally speaking in the Western Hemisphere. Not not named the US and of course WANNA spend a Lotta time off talking about one of my favorite subjects expert p but a spoiler alert Offer the fans that are playing along. This is actually going to be. I think a relatively bullish and positive discussion on extra p And it because The video team is generally leveraging the Extra P. Ledger and remittance system has designed not necessarily the speculative store value but but certainly Workings relationship as a Penny Ouden and in particular Why for given bidzos opposition? Not just in Crypto Herman's as but driving a meaningful percentage of overall volume now through that Primary residence quarter between the US in Mexico. So there's a ton of we're GONNA cover I'm so excited to catch up with has been too long But Daniel what. Why don't we? I like to start by just giving the origin stories for the folks that got into the industry and kind of how they fell down the rabbit hole and and yours is is interesting in also I love it because you an hour in a very similar spots. Right I was coming into the industry. full-time had skipped business school because I basically fell into bitcoin decided to defer and got to know each other a little bit in Boston because you were at hp so to talk talk a little bit about the high level journey in Wichita before and how you can join so yeah thank you. Thank you for the kind anchor. It's great to be here. It's great great to to connect with you again and you've been a very important part of our journey embiid so and so speaking to you and yeah so well I the stories for Mexico. I spent eight years in the states. I went to Undergrad there. I started computer to leaving in economics in and I was working individually in a comfortable one test programmatic ad buying it by neighbor who went to school me and in a really good friend one day just basically he said. Have you listened to this thing especially thing. BITCOIN and I said no Wrong tasting He got another roommate. WHO's a big fan of room and I went back home in? I started going into Reading about Bitcoin and the next thing I realized like six the extent like four or five hours just browsing and falling deeply on the on the rabbit hole. I then became known as the Bitcoin Guy. A A- At one test is one of the few things that I talk about as a very early on and then my job to pursue. NBA added Trieste. Two thousand thirteen in in what I found when I was at the Abbey was very different. Like the especially at this moment talk about Bitcoin that Renault case Oh bitcoin and those that got his little community that you were part of and you know you've got circle who sort of like starting talk about oriented in dooby on this tiny little sort of like just connecting with all sluts thinking to build a business but mainly humane because I was just very interested -nology and ever since the onset now savings now Considered sort of connect back story but since the onset I was always very interesting remittances because as that Mexican the. US experience how difficult it is to have money from the US Mexico in Luckily excessively to send money back home like many other make sense. Do Chess need many of them in the news that I entered the states. It's a little bit of heartbreaking story to know the amount of money that stay at a very very simple surveys that I thought was going to solve right I. It was very early on the idea that abused occurrence. He could basically completely killed those costs transferred. And the way when I was when I was in business like these amazing nineties who were basically starting at exchanging makes on exchanging the openly bickered was the relevant currency and wealth manager. Some of your audience still is putting on what we basically basically saying. They couldn't exchange tonight. They started helping them out. And in slowly I I got really curious. And they positioned that I don them at psycho founder restarted. And it's being it's in quite some time now. The service started in April two thousand fourteen. So we're coming up to a six year makes us one of the oldest big exchanges exchanges to remain alive and largest lining Mexico by a significant margin in in in the rest of Tom. Something for the largest one things. We battling adulated some exchanges in Brazil but very focused to continue to be a big boys and a big important. So you're getting more people on board or Crypto. Basically with a very big focus on building very sealers and good on in Rams for folks that at living stations that are not as welcoming sung producers. That your your audience and Mary. We asked which countries are available in now. So we're fully available in Mexico and that is by far our largest markets we just launched on we just launched a Beta in Argentina which should own a full-blown experience starting next month in. We Cowboys Cowboy's team in Brazil that is actively looking into Brazil. It's interesting fiction. Because he's a very large market it is largest underbid irks but then one of the things. We're doing sort of deciding is how do we. How can we accelerate access to folks that live That don't Miss Serbia where we need to deploy full solution like Abbie in Mexico and Argentina where it's basically out full full on full off ramp. They welcome today. Ed Mental Reality. So those folks. Very strong Fenton durations. It makes access to a real tango settlements provider less AC- basically In seconds in in Argentina we do the same thing in Mexico. Twenty four seven outbreak Yet but it's going to get there in into we build these very very very good integration both countries and next gristle but at the same time. We're exploring copy me. Provide a lot more access more quick meet with not as good as yeah but at least having some of the folks that WanNa have access to have access quicker
Review: Dicey Dungeons
"I see Dungeons Dungeons in this game. It's a fun game. It is yes we like fun games and it's also a deck building game But this one has like a dice as mechanics so depending on the dice or die you roll. You can use those to basically play your cards so so if you sometimes the cards are like if you roll above a four you can't use it or if you you have to roll like odd numbers or even numbers in order to use the cards and sometimes the amount matters of how much you're hitting and other times it doesn't and you play with different characters going through a world basically going through different levels gauntlet. Yeah yeah a game show. Is it just single player. It's not about some party game aspect or anything no and each of the characters you can play as have like different abilities and mechanics and they all feel really different and really interesting ways. It's really fun to build each taxis time. You do a run. It feels like a very different experience. Because you're getting different cards and you're playing playing those cards differently with each other and you can kind of organize your stuff to make it feel like truly you know different. Yeah I found it to be an interesting take on the deck building South because instead of the shuffled luck of the draw on your deck you get the same cars. But you're relying on the random factor BURLINGTON. Yes it's almost like a yahtzee situation of like roll all the dice and then decide what you're going to count them as. Yeah sometimes you get like Abbie was saying that different characters have different abilities. You can re role. Sometimes they get specials. It's it's a neat take and and a good surprise and I think it's really. I think it's very charming. And the art style in like the presentation of it is very well done. It's you know it's funny. It's done sort of like faith game show show but kind of like a little bit weird. It's very cute yeah I don't know I big Fan of this game. I think it's great It was a custody. It was a prized. Come out so I really. I really acceptable easy to pick up. And and just maybe take like a hand or two and you kind of figured out. What's going on
The Disappearance of Ebby Steppach
"A young woman has a traumatic experience at a party she decided to go to the police about what happen to her but before she does she vanishes the only contact with her a mysterious phone call to her brother and which she says she doesn't know where she is then she disappears her car is found as for our missing eighteen year old be static no sign of her nothing divac in shall we remember we talked about phone data and social media and episode one and how the investigator was confused about Abe's phone and about her social media Eddie's family once again tries to get involved they even offered to pay for an IT expert to help to access and analyze all of this data and then all of this only to be told that the department would not accept outside help detected is also failed to obtain surveillance footage from the Walmart supercenter on Chanel drive which could have captured abby and a final insult for eight months the Little Rock Police Department treated the case essentially as a runaway and the case sat in the Major Crimes Division end with virtually no movement even as late as November second when Abbie's family reiterated that she would not have been out of context for so long Channel Seven News in Little Rock reported that quote police tell channel seven they believe abby is still alive and in the area and as Michael Jernigan put it to K. A. R. K. T. quote the whole first thirty days was just the cops counting on Ebi showing backup Lori echoed the sentiment saying for the first part of the investigation no one was looking for her now. Laurie is not the type to take this lying down the family hired Monte Vickers a retired twenty two year little rock police department detective turned private investigator to help them someone needed to care about Eddie's case as ex-police himself at first vickers was hesitant to get involved in such a recent active case being handled by the force he had once been a part of right but he decided he could perhaps act go-between he doesn't WanNa take over the investigation he doesn't want to get in the way of the investigators he thinks that they need a go between for the Party is involved to help with what seemed to be poor relationship between the police department and the journey begins but when the Little Rock Police Department would not return his call else and he caught wind of the botch investigation he says that was enough for him that he was now going to actively get involved in the investigation yet because a lot of these departments they hold a lot of respect for former employees so when they call it's a big deal but when they're not making a big deal of it something's fishy he says and he's on record as saying such he says quote I found out pretty quickly they didn't give a damn what I had to say they wouldn't call me back they basically just wouldn't talk to us to the family or to him he said he chose urge the family one single dollar to get to work on this investigation a vickers discovered that none of these bank cards or counts had and accessed in any way since she disappeared that plus the fact that she would never have left without her car and all of her possessions the Family the worst even more alarming vickers uncovered the EBI sent several text messages to the young men she had had the encounter with at the Party on the Friday before she vanished threatening to go to the police in have them arrested it seems that Michael's concerns that abby might have confronted one of these boys are all of them alone might be correct right or they could have said all she's GonNa go to the cops and there's an she could say I have a copy of the video let's just say she said that then that gives us motive even if she's not going to confront them that gives them a reason to find her right well vickers found out who these boys were and searched the area areas near their homes this is for any clues as to Abbey's whereabouts he came up with nothing to his dismay he discovered that the lease had in fact talked to these guys at some point but never looked at their phones despite the family telling the police department about the rape allegations and that there may be a video why right and it's not clear if they asked for the phones but we know that they didn't look at well what we do know is the detectives on the case told the family and they told vickers the private investigator that they did not have probable cause to search so basically they're stating we could've asked these boys to see their phones and they said no and we don't have probable cause to to search the phones beyond them allowing us or not allowing us now five months after ebby was last seen vickers made arrangements to meet with guy who you're remember he's the security guard who called the police when he found a vehicle Shalam Park yeah little rock lease assured vickers that they had spoke to this man to the security officer so he assumed this would be just like a quick confirmation the hooper didn't know anything more than what was related to him from police instead the meeting resulted in a forty five minute taped interview too Lakers shock he was told by hooper that he had never been contacted by police further he told vickers he had made a report to the police about the aband- in car on Tuesday night after had been sitting there for three days he waited for the police by the car for two to three hours but the police never came the police didn't show up to take a look until two days later and even more startling hooper told vickers that he had Dash Cam video of Abbey and a man this she had met at the park on multiple occasions hooper had gotten fairly close to the pair in some words I guess right apparently he had quote run them off several times the guard saved all of the Dash Cam video on his hard drive at his home he had finished his shift he had this Dashcam and he would put this video at the end of every ship on his computer home unfortunately his computer had died and this took place in January of two thousand sixteen and the computer could not be fixed so it was thrown out all of this potential Dash Cam surveillance footage went with the computer gone it's gone because nobody nobody thought to reach out to this guy and in fact the private investigator working for the family he was a little slow to reach out to him too because he had already been told by his old buddies at the police department that they they spoke to this guy while vickers was trying to dig up any Vincent Clues Laurie and Michael receive some assistance from an organization called Halos investigations this is a private Mississippi firm I'm that looks into cases of missing or traffic kids halos volunteers scoured the Internet for photos of Abbey in the event that she was traffic they also conducted a search of the shallow amount park woods assisted by the Little Rock Police Department this is four months after Abbey vanished the organization also helped publishing the case sending Abbey's missing persons poster to hospitals and police stations all over the country in case she turned up somewhere the case manager for Halos Tina Stores said her firm often sees cases of missing kids the police have dismissed as runaways as they seem to have here to her it didn't look like Abbie left voluntarily meanwhile the journey gins were being inundated with all sorts of hoax messages false alarms and facebook pranks where people claim to be Ebi but some of these we're enough to point them in the direction of sex trafficking some emails were sent to the family showing the Abbey was sold for twenty five thousand dollars people claim to have seen her on back page and craigslist. Laurie began to realize that this threat was very real right Sergeant Allen Ham be with the vice unit told Little rock's T H v eleven that his detective handle reports of human sex trafficking every single day but he still didn't seem to feel a sense of urgency about Abbie's case despite her parents real concerns he said quote we're going to try everything we can to help them find her and locate her and see if she wants to be found we don't know that finally about six months after Abbey was last heard from the relationship between the journey begins and the Little Rock Police Department it became toxic this is as stated by a y magazine they continue to treat abby as a runaway Major Crimes Detectives refuse to get warrants for the phones of the young men allegedly often the incident involving abby at the party the Little Rock PD did not seem to appreciate the involvement of the private investigator or of Halos or of anyone else and wouldn't budge on investigating the case as a possible abduction or something worse obesity what they were saying we're gonNA sit on our fat asses and in less the case get solved by somebody else for them formation comes to us we're not GONNA do anything Yeah and you know what I think we have here captain and I can't say this with one hundred percent certainty but I feel very confident saying this I feel like in this situation you probably have to detectives that are sitting as you put it sitting on their fat asses and choosing not to do anything sit on their thumbs uh-huh and spinning and I feel like when we're when we talk about this case when we tell this story we cannot tell it without telling these mishandling of the case however ever I think that these two detectives make the whole department have a bad name and probably undeservingly so you know there's probably a lot of good off officers with inside of this department and for whatever reason the Jernigan just got extremely unlucky that when the phone rang that day call came in it went to this detectives desk and Hammond this guy worked at and they didn't really work and you can't say they work I guess I shouldn't reasons and and try to go well maybe they're going through a divorce maybe there's bad things in their life happening maybe Maybe they knew people at the hardy maybe they didn't want you know what I mean like trying to come up with all these reasons but after a week and the constant neglect it's like these are the guys sit in their office all day farting in their chair and then when they get up to get coffee come back they sniff their chair that's what kind of guys these aren't so and get you were getting at when we talked last week and that's not out of bounds that wouldn't be out of bounds you talking about there is a potential here for some type of cover up did may we we have people that should be looked into that was at this party but is it almost seems like these investigators are choosing not to look in that direction for whatever reason rightly they're connected to somebody at that party but then at the end of the day when you really look at this thing you see that they're choosing not to look in any direction at all aw and so it to me it doesn't feel so much like a cover up it feels more like hold on here here's the reason why guys that are bad at their job here's where it makes fill like a cover up because what do we know that the lead seems so obvious right because yes the mode of scene is obvious and then we go we got these individuals yes we talked to them but there's no probable cause so we can't get this information not looking anywhere else okay so the first place you looked you stop looking after that so do you know what happened do you know somebody at that party that makes it seemed more likely to me that is cover up well right and win they are pressured when they are pushed and pressured to give some kind of theory or some kind of answer to somebody look they feel like they need to give an answer to the media he says we're going to try everything we can to help find her to help low

Clearly, we have it all documented. It's documented, scientifically not just words and admitted very bad mistake, at the White House. Correspondent ABBIE Philip reports the president may be trying to de-escalate the tension. I don't think it was intentional someone on the ground there made a mistake. But the question is, what does the United States do about it? And on that question, the president said, we'll see will the United States do something to send a message to Iran in return. Makers will soon be briefed at the White House situation room including speaker, Nancy Pelosi. We have to be a strong strategic about how we protect our interests.

Trump fires pollsters after results show him trailing Biden
"As the president is about to officially started his campaign. He may be getting off on the wrong foot. Let's begin with our White House. Correspondent ABBIE Philip Abby, the president's not happy on the eve of the big event. Now not at all. Well President Trump's week with supposed to be about this campaign rally tomorrow and Orlando that is expected to be massive, but instead everyone has been focused on these leaked numbers coming from his own campaign showing him trailing Democrats and the president's anger about this has prompted a major shakeup in the president's polling team. President Trump on edge tonight on the eve of the official launch of his reelection campaign in Orlando tomorrow, while I don't believe in those polls slamming his own campaigns polls that show him losing to former vice president, Joe Biden, and other Democrats in key states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. And moving to purge the officials who made them those polls, don't exist. But I just had a meeting with somebody that's upholster, and I'm winning everywhere. So I don't know what you tell Trump falsely tweeting that the polls which were conducted in March are fake, and adding, we are looking really good. But it is far too early to be focused on that yet. The campaign is moving quickly to quell Trump's fury purging three pollsters, who conducted the seventeen state survey over the leaks. Those officials privately acknowledging that the firings were less about the accuracy of the polls and more about satisfying Trump's demands. The president also offering an expansive view of his presidential powers telling ABC news that he believes the constitution gave him the power to fire. Former special counsel, Robert Muller article two would have allowed me to fire him. So I wasn't going to fight, you know why. Because I watched Richard Nixon go around firing everybody and that didn't work out too. Well, so your position is that you can hire fire anybody stop or start. That is the position of a lot of great. Lawyers and Trump repeatedly citing article two of the constitution, but dodging questions about whether he believes the president is above the law. So a president can't obstruct Justice. President can run the country. And that's what happens you. I run the country. And I run it. Well, and the president, does it, it's not illegal. I'm just saying a president under article two it's very strong read it interview also offering a window into the former TV executives fixation on optics Trump's snapping at his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who interrupted him in the middle of an answer in which he claimed he might one day release his tax returns. Oh, at some point, I might. But at some point they get it 'cause it's a fantastic financial statement. And let's do that over. He's coughing in the middle of my aunts yet. Okay. I don't like that. You know, your cheapest and you get a cough. Over here. This kid is just can't just to change. Sorry. Okay. Do you wanna do that a little differently? The while Trump was quick to throw his senior official out of the room, the president found himself out of the loop on a major US strategy to counter Russian cyber attacks. According to the New York Times, there was broad hesitation to brief Trump about a plan to play software code in Russian power grids that could be used for future, cyberattacks or surveillance to administration officials said they believed Mr. Trump had not been briefed in any detail over concerns about how he might react and the possibility that he might share sensitive information with foreign officials like he did in two thousand seventeen when he discussed a classified operation in Syria with the Russian, Foreign Minister and embassador in the Oval Office over the weekend. The president slammed the New York Times accusing the paper of a virtual act of treason and calling the report, not true. Now, President Trump suggested that the report was putting national security at risk by detailing these efforts on the national security side of things. But it also noted that the national Security Council was notified by about this report, and they declined to comment. Also raised no concerns about national security with the publication of these details, and President Trump and congress themselves gave the national security apparatus. The power to do this without the president's explicit. Okay. We'll fill up at the White House. Thanks very much.
