Houston bar struggles with how to enforce mask wearing after state mandate was lifted
"Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus restrictions. He made the announcement in a restaurant. The governor is ending a mask mandate and encouraging businesses to return to 100% capacity. How does that plan look to the staff at a restaurant? The governor did not visit. That's where Houston public Media's Katie Watkins begins her report. They're going around at Neil's Bar in Houston's East downtown neighborhood. A sign on the door reads. No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. But bartender Kristin Farmer worries the end of the statewide mask mandate may make that harder to enforce. Even prior to this, it was difficult sometimes to get customers to wear masks. So Going forward. I feel like it's gonna be More so under Governor Greg Abbott's new order businesses, Concil enact their own mask requirements and safety protocols, the bar farmer works that will still require masks and social distancing. But she fears the governor's message may further embolden anti masters and put people like herself who haven't been vaccinated at risk. We're obviously in a position where the vaccine isn't available Death but are trying to still work, so it would be cool if More people were vaccinated before we started opening up everything and Not taking just the basic steps. Currently, just 7% of people living in Texas are fully vaccinated. Still, some praise the governor's decision to allow businesses to operate at full capacity that is going to be tremendous and very, very necessary for our industry. That's Melissa Stewart with a Greater Houston restaurant association. She says. The statewide mask mandate was helpful when it was stay wide, and everybody had to do it. Was easier for staff members, frankly, to enforce it says it wasn't a question. That's why restaurant owner Alex Brennan Martin says he's making mass mandatory for employees but not for customers. Those strongly encouraged. It's become contentious and putting our employees are managers myself. In the position of enforcing those regulations, especially on an issue that seems to be just about 50 50 when you talk to folks and is highly emotionally charged It's a difficult thing to ask your employees and management to do. Houston has recorded all four Major Cove in 19 variants and medical professionals warn that loosening restrictions now will set back recovery efforts. Dr Joseph our own is the chief medical officer at United Memorial Medical Center. His main concern is another spike in hospitalizations. The moment I heard about these information of the governor was saying, I immediately called for a meeting here in the hospital on talking to the rest of the leaders of the hospital. We leave. From initial plans. So what we're going to do because we think we're going to have a large number of patients coming because of this, don't not wear a mask request by the governor, he says. These plans include stocking up on more PPE having more nursing personnel and even getting additional ventilators. Other frontline health care workers like ICU nurse Yvette Polo, Mackey share his concern. Colbert is nowhere near over. There's still people know ICUs like today that are dying that will die tomorrow that will die the next day. The next day, weeks and weeks to come still because of covert. She's worried about the extra physical and mental toll. This decision will take on her colleagues. Who have already been caring for a never ending stream of covert patients for nearly a year for NPR news. I'm Katie Watkins in Houston. The

"Local retailers air saying, Hey, master going to stay in place, aren't they? Yeah. Number of stores were saying that big change in Texas Mark Kroger H. E B, Big grocery store chain in Texas, CVS, Walgreens best by Target, Macy's Jasey Benny and then Toyota and GM. They're saying that Masks here are gonna still be required and Kroger seconds, doing what needs to be done to keep customers and employees safe. Abbott saying the governor Abbott, that's perfectly fine that they could do whatever they want to do on their property. But That he believes it's time to get going again. And here's how he's goodness in Texas and across the country. We now have the vaccine. Vaccines to protect Accidents from Kobe more than 5.7 million vaccine shots. Have already been given to Texas. But his critics including many and the health care side of things, they're saying, yes, it's looking a lot better, and we're going down the road of hopefully being somewhat done with this soon, but They feel like just give it a few more weeks and that they've got 29 million people in Texas. And, yes, $5.7 million has been given out split that in half because of two doses for most of them, And it's a small fraction of the poet folks in Texas who have the shot yet and then. You look the positivity rates in Texas. They 14% which is higher than many states, California which was so big couple of weeks ago, now down to 2.1% so You've got folks saying, Yeah, we want to get going again. But in the medical world they're saying just give us a few more weeks today in Alabama that the governor there Republican governors, she's saying they want to get there. She says she feels like what Texas Mississippi you're doing is just a little bit too early. Even with this positive news. I have a Dr Harrison. I'm both convinced that we need to get past Easter. And hopefully a lamb. Oh, Alabamians to get their first shot before we take a step. Some other states have taken to remove the mask or altogether and lift the restrictions outside of a handful of states, Texas, Mississippi, Florida and a couple of others. Generally, you're hearing this, okay? It's looking good, But let's tap the brakes just little bit. Give it a few more weeks and then and see if we can knock these things down. Okay. Okay, Alex. Thank you very much. I don't know if you just heard a little

Bob Lazar, UFOs And Aliens!
"In may of nineteen eighty-nine and interview with investigative reporter. George knapp appeared on las vegas news channel k. l. a. s. a shadowy figure under the alias of dennis explained exactly what was a secret facility south of groom lake in the nevada desert nine flying saucers of extraterrestrial origin are being stored analysed and testify. The subject explains that he was tasked with reverse engineering the propulsion systems of the crash and did not know how the government had gotten hold of these crafts. The shadowy figure was eventually revealed to be bob lazar in a subsequent interview where he revealed his identity. Bob lazar who Has a bachelor's degree in physics and electronic technology from pacifica university and he continued his masters at mit. He's a very very very interesting figure. Did you know before we started this researching into this. Did you know about him. I did I watched the netflix documentary. Just a super interesting individual. And i ended up going back in like watching his interview with koa s and And seem like how all that played out in the incredible reach that it had after the fact you know it was translated into multiple languages. Played over the entire world and people were gripped by by this man's story in what he had to say because he he seems so credible. It's seems like everything he's saying really has weight in is truthful the fact that he started this with not really seeking the the attention or seeking the accolade but actually just seeking to get the information out there even hiding his identity that some might say that that would be the the behavior of someone trying to hide something but i see it as behavior of someone who is trying to protect themselves. Because they're saying something that that may actually be factual dude. I bet he is phone calls every single day. People trying to get a hold of this guy people trying to email him and all kinds of stuff and back when this verse back when this first came out. I mean think about that. The technology and the communication that they had then you know people people today are used to getting like notifications every single day but think about how he felt getting all these phone calls. When i mean he's just a regular guy he. He was picked up because he has like a coup wanda and now he's this huge figure. Even thirty years ago. I mean it's just insane. Yeah i mean. He said he used to have people camping on his lawn. And stuff. and you you to remember that within the ufo community. There are a lot of people that are. I don't know how to say it a lot of people. That are a little strange. So for those people to becoming too bob lazar and it's got to be slightly terrifying and you'll see as we kind of dive into his story that i find him very credible. I find everything that he says. Very very credible in a lot of the stuff that he has said in the past Eventually comes through. So basically he gets his degrees from mit and At university he starts working at a los alamos research lab. And i believe los alamos and working On physics and nuclear weapon research which is what what the lab does obviously and then during his employment there. Alex kind of set it. He builds a jet powered honda. It's kind of extravagant thing that he drives to work everyday. It's literally a jet on a honda. Civic nazi looks like something out of the future and he built this thing. I mean he built us thing in eighty nine. I think it might have eighty nine was one he actually worked as for so yeah it was. It was probably around eighty four. I think So that gets the attention of the los alamos local newspaper who put him on the front cover with his jet cars. Jet honda that he built and that that's a little bit important to the story later on so kind of put a pin in that. So he's working at los alamos and he says that he leaves los alamos and goes off to start other businesses. That that turn out to fail now he never really goes into detail or at least i couldn't find what those other businesses were but he a couple years later wants to get back into the science community
Alex Lieberman and Austin Rief Discuss the Origins of Their Company Morning Brew
"Year was quite easy me. Because i didn't have to re- recruit for any jobs. I only take two classes and two other than playing a lot of fi fi. nhl and other video games. I was like. I need to do something to pass the time and keep myself sharp for my job. All right so started helping other students prepare for job interviews and i would always start my mock interviews by asking the question. How do you keep up with the business world and the answer to that question was typically something along the lines of the wall street journal or cnbc etc. And i would dig a little bit deeper. I say why. Do you read these things and the students would say something along the lines of you know. I read it because that's what my parents told me to do. Because it's a prerequisite saying while reading business but it's dense and dry and i don't have enough time in my day to read the journal cover to cover and so at some point i was like this is crazy. These kids are working their asses off to have careers in business yet. They don't have content. That story tells the business world in a fun. And engaging way right and so i started writing a daily newsletter at the time was called market corner. It was a pdf that i'd put together using microsoft word and then exported into a pdf. The logo was bearable in a bullfighting literally. Took it off google. It had the watermark going across and send it out to a serve every day over email. One of the early readers. Was this guy named austin reef and austin revealed me and was like. Hey i have some ideas for how we can make market corner better. Can we chat wow. We met up for a conversation and quickly. I didn't think to myself. Wow this is my co-founder because it wasn't even a business. It was lobby. Yeah i thought to myself is. Everyone is really good at telling me. I'm doing a great job with this thing. Edit is wildly unhelpful. To actually make it better. Austin was the only person that i had spoken to who actually gave constructive feedback on. How market corner could get better. Yeah that's when i knew. It was a complementary brain to mind somebody who thought linearly objectively and so. I brought him on his. Let's call it like a partner at the time and one thing led to another and we ended up launching morning brew together in march of twenty fifteen. I think austin. You're also a student right at of michigan. Both you guys were there right. Yeah so most people initially reading this right university of michigan and you were just alex. You're just writing short newsletter linking bigger articles about the specific topic basically. Yeah it was. It was basically like fifty one hundred fifty word blurbs with link out to the full story and then kind of this other brain food related to business right like investor of the day stock pitch of the day. That's what it wasn't the beginning. And austin you come aboard near like hey you can really do this a lot better. And here's how so. When did you decide. Like how did you get to the point where the two were like. You know what forget about our jobs. Let's jump into this newsletter thing. It wasn't an easy decision. So alex had the job lined up at morgan stanley. I was interning at molson and company. Which is a investment bank in new york city and very quickly. I realized that that wasn't the path for me. And so we wanted to be entrepreneurs we had an idea and so we thought why not give it a chance and we saw growth. We saw this grow from michigan to other big ten schools to ivy league schools to i think the big inflection point is when we soul older people reading. We thought there's something for college students when we realized this could actually be read by anyone. That was a big moment for us when we thought wow. This has potential to be read by tens of thousands but a
House to vote on sweeping government and elections reform bill
"Underway around the nation to put more restrictions on voting and how federal civil rights laws would address those changes. And now to the other side of that coin. Alex Appreciate is following this for ABC News and spoke with Cuomo's Taylor van Sites. Alex as I understand it. The four the People Act first came around in 2019. What is it? Why do Democrats say the country needs it? You're absolutely right. It keepers came around in 2019. But it Z It's got some new steam and it's actually expect to pass in the house this afternoon. Essentially, it's a way for Democratic lawmakers to respond to some of these Some of these Republican state controlled legislature law proposals that we've seen in the wake of the 2020 election and the spark notes on this before the people active 2021. It would automatically register people the votes to restore the voting rights of felons. It would also mandate mortar than two weeks of early voting, encourage vote by mail and expand absentee back drop boxes among some other things again. In the wake of the 2020 election, Republicans across the country have introduced 100. The Brennan center, says 43 states have about or more than 250 laws that would make it potentially harder to vote or considerations that could become lost, It would make it harder to vote. And so this gated some of that if the pandemic really for me highlighted how differently every state handles voting during the 2020 election, absentee and in person, But there are those who really fiercely believe that it is the state's place to implement voting rules. Was before the People Act Mandate changes. Well, so right now it does mandate some changes. Right s O. You have those those mandated to Two weeks of early voting, and also also some provision in there that would encourage vote by mail but look again state elections. It's been one of those things that Z handed handled by state by state. So you know if there are any workarounds depending on what part of the country you're in, and certainly I would keep, you know, we talked about that Supreme Court. Argument yesterday about the voting Rights Act surrounding the case in Arizona that looks at least early on, like you know that Arizona law that would essentially make it harder. To vote. There is probably going to be upheld. You know how that factors into this as well. But again, it's one of those time will tell kind of situations. As for now, could you tell me how much support there is for the four? The people acted within Congress. But we're expecting it to pass the house. I mean, again, Democrats controlled the House and the Senate. So is expected to pass the house today. It'll go over to the Senate, where listen, I suspect that that will have considerable support there as well. But again how it gets implemented. Um, uh, you know, nationwide and if if any of these pending cases affect that, you know, time will tell on that front A B C's Alex
Facebook bans Myanmars military
"A few weeks after a military coup in myanmar. Facebook has announced a ban on its platforms. An accounts run by members of the military. Facebook tends to lean toward the side of free speech sometimes even in the cases of harassment or biased or misleading news and it tries to stay politically neutral but with this move. Facebook is clearly taking a side joining us to discuss. Is alex ward a white house reporter for vox and co host of the worldly podcast. Hey alex hey so. Facebook announces this ban on accounts on facebook and on instagram that are run by the myanmar military. And i guess any related entities them. Tell me why facebook may this decision. We'll take a quick step back here and remember that the internet is really new in me and mar and as it grew. And it's you know people started to use it more. They turn to facebook and it became effectively. The de facto internet of me and mar. If you're against the government if you're in the government you're using it to promote your views and then of course the military for years. And i should say. The military has been effectively in charge of the country for for decades. They use facebook to get information propaganda out. It was also a prominent tool used by them to eradicate the rohingya muslims from the country in two thousand seventeen which has led to about seven hundred thousand to be displaced and others killed so facebook is kind of the life blood. way of both the democratic process in myanmar and also the the critic process in myanmar so as facebook always been okay with you know myanmar military officials using their platform for such deadly purposes. I mean okay in the sense of like if you ask mark zuckerberg was he. Happy that this was happening. no But they didn't really do anything to curtail it Which has been a constant criticism of facebook around the world. Facebook is important for organizing rallies in in many countries. Know that i cover in a bunch of other reporters cover as you know what's app telegram and all these kinds of apps for facebook is is a big one. Yeah so no disease politics aside. Let's say And they were okay. What happened no but they never really curtailed. And i think that matters right and so in this case you could see why. The again i'm oversimplifying. But the democratic and autocratic sides of myanmar turned to facebook because it didn't really matter what you're posting in general until facebook decided it was gone too far but both sides were getting their messages out for the last decade or so right so i guess what changed now. He's had gone too far. I mean what is different about a how myanmar military officials using facebook now versus in. You know twenty seventeen when they were kind of inciting genocide while there's been a coup right and when you're talking about a coup here in your having the coup leaders us. Facebook is like the main tool to overthrow a pseudo quasi-democratic government. Now they look bad. They look on the wrong side of democracy and when it's been a while Where facebook has been hit hard over the russian interference. All that kind of stuff. This is yet another issue in that trend And on top of that you've had the military now shutting off the internet itself. Okay that night so as not to allow the protesters to organize which they would be doing through facebook or any other these these channels so i think facebook perhaps realized that they were being used more in the negative space and then in a positive space in this last decade or so. And let's just be clear like the. Us called out me and mar called it. A coup right. And when you have the us government say this is a coup and then if your facebook an american company you know being seen Perhaps by your government as betting coup. That doesn't help so alex When you're saying that kind of the facebook almost is the internet in myanmar I'm curious what this ban looks like in practice Tell me like if i was You know a resident of myanmar What what does facebook look like right now for me and Tell me just what. It's like to use the internet in in a country That is undergoing a coup but also wordless. Coup leaders cannot access the internet. Well again take a quick step back. Let's remember that the democracy in the country really sprang up around two thousand nine or so. And so that's when you had a bunch of foreign investment come in. You had telecommunications companies come in So this last generation. This last decade has been the birth of the internet and myanmar. And of course. Where would you go. When you first started easy net you're going to go to the established social media platforms the facebooks. That twitter's the in telegrams in the what's apps and all that so now you have in myanmar is one. The internet is working when it is when the government allows it to be up. Now you're on facebook or you're on all these other platforms. That i mentioned in using it to of course connect with your friends to promote your business to get your political messaging for all that kind of stuff. Now when it's off that sort of one track that you had to do all those things gone and so of course there are other platforms. It's not like people are completely shut out or that. They only use facebook. That's of course not the case but that was a prominent website. Used for all this activity so now it's kind of like the the backbone of myanmar's internet let's say the thing through which a lot of activity across the board goes through. That's just no longer available.

Republicans in Nearly Every State Push For Voting Restrictions in the Aftermath of 2020 Election
"Every state push new voting restrictions in the aftermath of the 2020 election, the U. S. Supreme Court today heard a major case to decide how those rules should be judged under federal civil rights law. Will the court uphold to provision of in Arizona voting law that Democrats argue violate the historic Voting Rights Act? Here's NBC's Alex Push a Well, so the U. S. Supreme Court is looking essentially at a section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that's meant to combat racial discrimination in state election laws. So after the 2020 presidential election, we've seen a flurry of Republican state legislators that have made laws that essentially have kind of made it harder to vote. This is, according to the Brennan center, They tallied about 215 bills across the country. But so this particular case did the Supreme Court is hearing is added. Arizona and justices Air grappling how to interpret Section Two of the act, which says any measures that result in the denial or bridge mint of voting rights on account of race or color. Is illegal. Now. The details of this Arizona case there, too, to new laws and one deals with how ballots or cat they disqualified Ballots cast out of precinct, Uh, The other Arizona law prohibits third party collection of mail ballots for delivery to state officials. So the court must decide how and what tests should be used to to determine whether or not this violates that section two. Well, Alex. I know there is an opinion express that these regulations make it harder to vote. But then there will be others that will say no. These regulations will ensure against voter fraud. So you have two different Perspectives on these regulations City? Absolutely. And so I mean, I think this this is going to be you know, the biggest tell for the legacy of former President Trump like appointing conservative justices to the court. The court is now mostly conservative, right. And so we're already starting to see the effects of that and in the arguing on day so I can tell you that earlier today Got this bread cabinet. Also justice any Amy Cockney Barrett are saying that essentially, you know, they believe that these laws don't necessarily violate the Voting Rights Act of 1965 where you had Justice Sonia sort of my yours? Who's who's arguing otherwise. But we're months away from a decision in this case, but early on, it looks as though these particular laws out of Arizona will stay intact and I'll tell you why. Um, even the Biden administration has conceded that they may not have run afoul of the Voting Rights Act. It seemed as though that can mean the court, which is majority conservative, also sees it that way. Again. There's a lot of time between now and when this case is a question to be decided, decided, which is the end of June, But but early on, it seems as though uh, these laws will probably be upheld. Okay. It's a B C's Alex per shade in Washington. Thank you, Alex for your time today. Thank you, Kitty. All right. 6 50 our final

Andrei Vasilevskiy delivers consecutive shutouts, Lightning top Stars 2-0
"Vasilevskiy was once again dominant. He stopped all 20 shots He faced supposed to shut out in his second straight start and earn his second shutout overall this season that earned him the first star of the week in the NHL. Is now posted shut outs and back to back starts five times in his career, and he's gone seven consecutive periods without allowing a goal. When you talk about the advantage the Lightning has in net every game. It's pretty wide, especially in this division. Vasilevskiy is head and shoulders better than everyone else. Ben Bishop might have a say in that, but he's injured right now for the stars Brian and Blam from Sun Sports and My partner for The Last Call, which is presented by Jack Daniels told Dave Michigan and me on power lunch yesterday. That vast Celeski has grown so much as a netminder. He's a machine. He really s vasilevskiy. That really interesting character. And, of course, is a hockey player. He's very quiet with us. Naturally it apparently he's a real riot with the players, you know, on practice, days and days in between got a great sense of humor. But he is all business. When he shows up first thing in the morning, you talk to other players and go. You just leave Vasi to himself. He's he's already in that zone. He's got the body for it. It's 63 and well over £200. He's got the long legs and long arms. You know, we're talking about circuits have an experience exactly the same thing of front, John Goaltending coach talked about it recently saying that you know, vastly going all the way and winning the cup.

Your gold center. Oftentimes is your best penalty killer and the Lightning had to kill off six power place from the stars, and that was big, according to egg blam, and he loved what he saw. Thought Alex Killorn had some sequences. I would point him out, especially. I thought he was incredible. He had four if not five. Individual plays where he just dismantled their attack. Turned the pack over and either shot out of the zone himself or made availability for somebody else that he was playing with the get the park and get it down. But they all were in great sequence when the pressure when not to That was a big part of the game and then getting on the scoreboard first two now, But Andre, polite, just has an affinity for that, And then he starts on time all the time. And that's always a big deal. Doesn't matter who you're playing. Whether it's Dallas and the team you played in the Stanley Cup finals or the last place team, Callie always seems to start on time and a that gives you a big advantage.

Mother daughter weekends as you get older or You know, with your mom, like the three generations of women kind of stuff like all that has to be processed and released. Yeah, exactly. I had a narrative to where I was going to have a strong woman. I was going to raise a strong woman on and it's like, Oh, well, I got two sons. So yeah, that's done And and we did. We used to do Little mother daughter. Trips. Um, and that's what we would call them Girls weekend, right? Um and Alex is The middle name we gave him at birth was my grandmother's My mother's in mind and sort of that connection and so sort of having that multi generational connection through the name and that's gone. Being a mother of the bride that's gone. Yeah, there's not gonna be in a delivery room unnecessarily. You know, the mother daughter Bond thing is probably and however that comes out is probably the one that's Memorized. Yeah, it's so trippy, because in some ways, it's still totally like your bond with Alex is deep. I mean, in some ways, it's probably so much deeper than an ordinary relationship where all the intimacy that around this must be so intense. All the advocacy are the gratitude. Other learning like it's it's really Accelerated experience for two people to go through together. I think you're right. It is very intense, and and we've had to make some big choices. And so that requires to have, you know, really deep, meaningful conversations and about like such deep things like the nature of identity, and like, Who are you? And are you your body? Are you the thing inside your body like this is as heavy as it gets. Yeah. And then just what steps do you want to take? Right? And do you wanna start? Hormone blockers or testosterone, or, you know, now we're considering the surgery pieces and Be thoughtful about that and make sure we're informed and dealing with. Yeah, the emotional peace and what do we feeling? And how will be dealing with that? And then you know, the external community, right is a zoo, Alex. Goes to when picking a high school is this house is gonna work for you there. Um Yeah. How did your husband deals that all? I'm really fortunate we both shared. You know that Neither of us were like this isn't Real or URGENT. I think he was Probably harder for him than it was for me, and I don't know why necessarily, But I mean, Alex I talked about he still has. Alex is You know, dead name in his cell phone? I think he Oh, yeah. He struggles to Let go totally. But he's fully supportive at the same time. You know, we we've been dealing with a number of things is everyone is And so when this happened, it was like, Oh, my gosh, like we know enough to know that this thesis something that's going to take that. That time and attention and thoughtfulness and study and it's like, Oh, this is exhausting. I think that kind of anticipated that it was like when, after really hunker down and You know, I don't know that he had a full tank where we started this, So right, right, right. Yeah, There's the idea that you're only supposed to have one crazy thing happened. You know in a lifetime, and then it's like what? No, no, no, no, already already did something that was really unusual that most people don't have to deal with. The fertility treatments and multiple miscarriages and then to adoptions and those that was probably the process. I thought, Well, that's my thing, right? That's That's the thing that You know, I'm I'm gonna have to study and understand which is not being a biological parent. And that's the thing. That's the narrative I have to leave behind. Yeah, and then we've you know, we've had Alex's brother had struggled with learning differences. And so we had to uncover what all that meant. And and the stigma that comes from a kid who you know, thinks and learns differently. I thought you were there we go now we've got Got that taken care of? Yeah, That's enough. I'm good. I'm good. Yeah, And then this with Alex again about the having a transgender child. Um And all that comes with that, Hmm. What are you in your marriage really good at Yeah. Hmm. I think we're pretty good at humor and being kind ourselves. Maybe that's a way of Hmm. Gymnastics, But I think we take care of ourselves.

Cadillac who's the ASPER, the Assistant Secretary for preparedness and Response Who Works? In HHS. And? He couldn't rick bright couldn't get anybody to take it seriously e- even though they should have known to take it seriously and I think it's because the president in WanNa hear about it. He was focused on other things he's focused on the impeachment and it was focused on things that were right before. So I think the whole story of this administration really is how trump surrounded himself with yes. Man Who always give him the news that he wants to hear rather than.

Do Do you remember the story, Long Distance yes. How long ago was that three years now and before you even get started? I should say that this episode going to contain a lot of spoilers for those episodes, so if you haven't listened to them, go back and listen to episodes one or two one of three, but basically couple years ago. I did this story about my relationship with a tech support scammer in India. And it began when I got this roll call saying that my cloud might be compromised, so I decided to call the number back. Your college very important to us. Stay on the line and you'll be transferred to the next available agent. Thank you for calling online forty talking to Alex South a health you, what a coincidence! My name is Alex I got a call that said that there was some. No name is Michael Goldman. My Middle Name. Is Alex I go by Alex? Alex Alex talking to help you. This guy tells me. His name is Alex Martin. And at first he's just doing your standard tech support phone call like Oh. You have a virus, pay US Blah Blah Blah, but like when I make it clear to him I. Know this is a scam. He drops the facade in the craziest way possible. I'm looking up this phone number online. It does not say that it is any it's related to apple in any way, so I'm trying to figure out who you are. We are anonymous. We Are Legion. EXPECT, US! You're a year nine year. Legion expect you, are you? Are you coming for me? We will be demolishing all your social identities so eventually. He admits he's not part of anonymous that he's just your average everyday telephone scammer. But. Then he was like talking to me about being telephone scammer in this way that was completely shameless. Don't you feel bad at all about scamming? People who don't know anything about computers? No own why not? WHY WOULD I? because. You guys have a lot of money that we spend. But. How do you know how much money I have? We judge them like we make a judgment like somebody the name. Or having good name, you'd say like they all. They must be having the money. So I stayed on the phone with this guy for about twenty minutes and I just thought it was fascinating and I had the call centers number so I just kept calling back, and I would always get super excited when I got this guy. Same Alex modern movie. How's it going? Man I've been trying to get in touch with you for weeks. My goodness, I was if you remember I really liked him. Yes, I think what I liked about him. Is that I feel like we're cut from the same cloth like I would say obnoxious and chatty or two words. You could use to describe. And That's how I would also describe. Alex Martin like. After I talked to him I was just like. Oh, I just want to give this Guy Gamertag and we can hang out team. Speak all night, you know. And I called back enough that he eventually gave me his cell phone number, and he told me his real name was Kamal, he says he's the manager of the call center, which costings and instead of talking to him in the office I was talking to him at his house like in the middle of the night. Anytime anytime whenever you come. To me okay. I'm coming if you visit New Delhi. Yeah, just come just come for two three days and we. Make. You visit places like touch. Nearly no grow, and in these phone calls. He sounded very subdued like very quiet, not quite as jokey, and we kinda debated in the office like. Is this the same guy? But I was pretty sure it was I just figured maybe sounded a little different because the changes setting. And eventually he invited me to India and of course I'M GONNA go like I. Get to hang out with the guy who worked at the call center, and will answer all my questions, but when I got to India, he was like a completely different person was not fun to be around. seemed like he was just barely putting up with me rather than enjoying my company and like I left India feeling like. that it was kind of a bust, we didn't learn what we'd still jilted. Yeah, a little bit because it was like you've got this, you. You're Alex. Martin your friend, and said you've got this dude who was called an angry and was behaving way more than what you would expect. A Guy who runs chemicals entered to behave journalist. Okay well when you put it that way, yes, yes. But then like after we put the story out, and this is the correction that I wanted to tell you. One of the people from the call center who had spoken to for the story, got in touch with me and was like hey. Come all the guy you met in India. He is not Alex Martin. Alex, Martin is someone else. Those are two different people. And I'm pretty sure what happened. Is that during a particular call with Alex Martin? Kamal just grabbed the phone away from him, and basically to keep me from calling the call center anymore gave me his cell phone number, and that's how I ended up talking to him when he was at home. That makes way more sense so. You talked to one person. The phone you went in the other person. You actually never got to have the experience that you thought you. Were GonNA. Have you never have see your friend? That's true I never got to go. See My friend. But the same source who said that they were two different people pointed me to the real Alex Martin. They sent me his facebook profile, and after a decent amount of haranguing I actually managed to get him on the phone a Alex. I'm good. How are you what's going on? I'm doing great. Thanks for asking Maryland's longtime. It has been a long time. It has, and he tells me his real name. Oh yeah, it's Akash are Shurmur. going. So I started talking and I'm very stoked to finally be talking to this guy that I had basically wanted to since the beginning of the long distance saga. But pretty much immediately the reply all team falls into the same debate that we were having during the original long distance because truth he was like. Alex, are you sure that this is really Alex Martin like? She said that the guy who entered the phone when I first called, the costings sounded like someone. She went to high school with and this guy that I'm talking to you now has a different accent. So we decided to call him up. Hello. Is this Akash? Jai Akash. This is a strategic Panamanian. I work at reply all cash over you. Alex. Hey Alex is on the phone, too, so Akash I'm sorry to call you so late. I wanted to say I. Heard Your interview with Alex and. You don't sound like Alex Martin to me. So what does ask who you are? All right so you're saying that idol sell like Alex Florida right? Yeah, the guy who picks up and who says I'm anonymous. I'm legion. You don't sound like him. Well that wasn't me to be honest. All right so PJ this is. Now after issue, a second correction because. Akash. Told me that Alex Barton was not one person. WHOA, yeah, it was a name that everyone in the office would use when they knew I was calling like everybody knows okay Alex goal and calls in. Just.

B. S. eight five five two one two four two two seven on Twitter at the real breast you area stage I wonder how many of you have really changed your thoughts on it like I saw a study or survey the other day where it was like in twenty eighteen it was twenty eight percent of NFL fans thought it was this server fought it wasn't disrespectful for the next year thirty six percent upon it wasn't disrespectful and in a recent poll it was around I think it was fifty two or fifty three percent so now it's gone the other way in terms of it's not viewed as disrespectful so that's the thing may be it's ten meal or not to kneel that becomes the question for you at eight five five two one two for CBS let's go to bar their body you're in palm desert when the grass show go ahead but go ahead okay good good image but go ahead okay yeah the reason I called is that the say look we don't want comments about Baker Mayfield all the people in Beijing they're going to support the kneeling and read all the racist comments that to me means it's even more important for them to kneel to show that they're not gonna be cowed by these races that are out there.

"Had they actually had the actor? Yes it was nice to hear about her. The yeah it was a very clever tack. Whatever algorithm the sufferers using to try and gaslight people? It does a very nice job of it. I was not at all caught by the Kelly. Waking up still being in the simulation that was pretty obvious because we already know. There's only two ways of getting out of the simulation and she didn't either right but I did like the added complexity of you. Try and leave. No you're not actually leaving. We're just giving you a deeper more complicated fake reality to try and tricky authorized its inception. Levian exactly so that certainly another thing just a very minor detail that I noticed was that at the beginning of her VR. Fantasy Alex as supergirl had a long black wig but then in later scenes of Alex's supergirl had lost the wagon was back to her regular cool haircut shortly symmetrical and wondered you know. Was there some kind of logic about that? And also just liked Alex's black superhero costume as opposed to random blew. The by costume is great. And yeah the haircut. The haircuts has changed as we were one. Simulation layer in her hair was never long in the outer simulation. Still had her as your girl in there somewhere we had Andrea giving this horrible line. What happened last week was because of a hacker? Not a flaw in our system Andrea. You should not be allowed Girona software. I mean Kelly is bad. She calls this life threatening brain damage. Inducing bug problematic but I really need Andrea to come back and do something a little more helpful in terms of what obsidian platinum's becoming because I was so bad. Yes yes yes it was one other thing that occurs to me is with all the stuff that Andrea is talking about with the wonderful anti trauma uses of Obsidian. Kelly was a late higher. And I suppose there may be other psychiatrists working for Obsidian but we've never seen or heard of them any of them had. Kelly doesn't seem to be head of a department anything so I think Andrea's emphasis on how wonderful and therapeutic obsidian is is just really bogus. I kind of bought it in the previous episode where it was discussing the people who were just given this traumatic experience and then it was helping them but here. I. I couldn't cope with it at all. I mean I suppose it's Andrea trying to manipulate Kelly. Because she knows what Kelly's interested in but it's so far down a dark alley where Andrea is either line. Which I don't know she is or an idiot and I don't think she is so it it. It was really hard for me these lines but at least we do have some turning later in the episode. Andrea says fixed the bug. I don't care if this process can be good and help some people if it is obviously life threatening and brain damage inducing. No now you you halt release you tell people you know that. There's there's going to be a little work on it. You can lie and say that we didn't properly prepare for scaling it up and we're GONNA have to halt and retrench for a few weeks or something you don't have to say we create an evil mind killing bug But you don't just keep going forward with it and also just. This isn't how corporations work either let alone software companies. You don't tell one person stop stuff until this is dealt with you. Call a meeting with a bunch of managers and tell them that Heads will roll or something. You don't just walk past Secretary and say. Stop that stuff for the most part. I think we're just seeing time and budget constraints. There aren't enough actors being paid for by this show to cover it. I suppose but it's jarring to keep seeing all seeing these. This isn't how it works consistent. How anything like that works moments it's Disruptive to the story I think there is no Watt Sonian. Answer to a lot of these questions. I'm afraid right. I thought it was interesting as we bury into Alex's reality how Alex clearly wants her hinshaw and brains to be very over the top in their portrayal. Yes between this in the bar scene with the singing Lincoln I kind of wonder if this is what watching legends of the this is just gone crazy. I enjoy the over the top -ness of legends of tomorrow. This is not that you don't have Tony. In which is vaporizing people in bars and everyone giggling or you might but it would be clever and funny not just The all of that bar scene was just kind of Yes I didn't quite believe that this was effectively going to turn Alex but I guess it did. I think they just wanted to show you. Even though it was entirely horrible and ridiculous it was still starting to fake out. Alex I was just going to mention that in VR world. We see a bunch of other player characters and you know with this environment really wanted to keep people locked in and not get surprised having them actually. Interacting with other people in the simulation is not a good idea right if everyone was an NBC. There's no way that Alex would have been shocked to find that there was another supergirl around so for everything. The simulation was doing to try and lock Alex in. It did seem to be doing some incredibly stupid things that would make everyone double think and reconsider the reality. So maybe it's just. The obsidian trap isn't fully coated yet or. I just don't quite understand what it's trying to do. I think they probably don't have the supercomputing power to have an immersive reality Each person so probably you know they have to share resources from person to person and they just let that get a little too close world of work server. Are you on something like that? There's only a couple super girls. There's not fifty super goals flying around. I think this has basically the problem that second life always has. Which is it's crazy but I did kind of like having the supergirl show up and the NBC's all responding to her in exactly the same way. They responded to. Alex and Alex going wait a second okay so when Kelly finally gets Alex out of her. Vr trump they hug an. Alex apologizes. you know. That's very nice. Alex's the thing about there's a lot more people trapped in there and Kelly says I'm on it but first we need to get you to Midvale. That is being an right girlfriend but a horrible psychiatrist because there's a bunch of people trapped in possibly needing medical help as well as psychiatric help and I think Kelley should have done something about that And put her girlfriend in cab. I was horrified by that scene. I have exactly the same line seriously. The funeral a higher priority than forty two people stuck in bodybags. What are you talking about killing? Does your priorities here. There's no way that they should go to the funeral. Given that all of these people are in desperate help and they're the only ones who know how to do anything about it. I was amazed by that. Maybe they could've phrased it or put it in a line there to make it excusable but just going from. Those lines was just just ridiculous. I was also fairly appalled. The Kelly kept going in by herself to save trapped. Alex when she knew was Alex was trapped and have no reason to believe that you know she. Kelly would be able to get out of it any better. Oh I don't know I think the second person going in the first person into the virtual reality to go into their brain that trump is so deep and so used I just. I don't think I even noticed okay. What I did notice was. They did get back the teen Alex that we had previously had in a big flashback episode. Which I thought was an interesting use because they have the local Vancouver actors around and they could get that actor which I thought was an interesting use but really put in sharp relief that they couldn't get Alex's father's actor back to do this episode in Vr. So they present that Alex is somehow getting some kind of closure through this experience. But there's nothing there to show US her getting any closure the young. Alex kind of explains that. Oh you couldn't have done anything Yeah I mean kind of closure is to get Alex to accept that there is no closure. I suppose and I think the young Alex did a pretty good job in this role. I asked you did a good job. In the flashback to so it was nice seeing her again but it is. I think a bit of a pity that they couldn't bring back the father's actor. Yep Okay so a lot to look forward to. I think You know. We may quibble with plot elements of individual episodes. But I've been enjoying the plot weaving And the Union dodging in and out on the misdirections that we've been seeing very pleased overall with this season. I'm a little worried that we may not actually get a resolution given the situation that Filming production has been stopped and They had not gotten all the way to the finale yet. So I'm not quite sure far. We're going to get through the season. It may come to an abrupt stop. I don't know if they really could Just for shorten the season given. It stopped so they can't really write a quick episode. Nineteen that would wrap it up. 'cause that's not GonNa get filmed at least not for probably month two months. They probably wouldn't want to. Just stop and say Kay. We're going another height. As for a couple of months. They would probably stop the season. Pick it up again next year. What do you think a lot of shows are hitting this and certainly the right call because there's no good reason to have crews and actors and all of these things put at risk absolutely hi? I'm not complaining about the situation. I'm just speculating. Has I want to do. I'm sure there are episode. That are filmed. That are still in post. So that's still going to be gone going but yeah the the schedule for the rest of the season and then what the start up for the next season looks like is it all unknown but I am sure that they'll be able to do something in unless they decide to say screw it. Let's end the show that would suck but I'm sure that eventually it will sort itself out. Yeah it was a bit jarring also when I was Streaming the episode and saw episodes for police which certainly nobody in my area has going through these days and for the new mutants premiering April three in theaters. Which will not happen there are. I'm sure some people who believe that the new mutants is never going to actually come out. I Sola want to see this movie. Who knows how bad it is but I so desperately want to see this movie. Well I suppose they could put it on streaming. I don't understand why they don't really. I mean obviously they barely want to put it in theaters. So they've been resisting putting it in theaters for months and months and months. Now I guess like everybody else will just have to wait and see what happens. Absolutely I didn't mention one thing. Kelly said at some point in the episode regarding people not realizing that they were in Vr anymore that she had seen this before and she's still okay with this product. Yeah so Kelly is trapped in the system. Although she's starting to resist bit these assurances by Andrea. I'm sure she must've signed some really fierce nondisclosure things which she's probably already broken by talking to William. No kidding here's the thing. If obsidian platinum does horrible things and lots of people die or or these horrible things happen to them and William could have stopped it by just going to another press organization and actually writing the article. I'll be anointed so far. All he really has to go on is a bracelet Lou No he has everything Kelly's told him he has some missing people but then they couldn't find them so I don't know but he'll find out what happened to Alex. Yes time will tell. I hope our listeners out. There are staying safe and doing what they can tell other. Stay safe I hope that our discussions help. Lighten the mood for people for a little while.

our for one K. to cover the down payment so little nervous about one are we going to be able to meet our goals of being debt free by next year and even then he wanted to be successful with the business as well in one apartment thanks for the encouragement I'm confused your husband is on baby step to trying to get out of debt and he went bought a ninety thousand dollar dump truck on payments these things don't seem to go together yes hi is he already done this do you yes he has so I work in he worked he was currently working for a company and he's gonna be cutting his paperwork to collect in two weeks so yes he has already done the paperwork the bank is already approved the loan signing of a pick up truck as of next week I'm sure I probably can convince him not to do it I tried to convince him in the beginning to get a cheaper truck he went down there looking at vehicle came back with something significantly higher in yeah it's been rolling in I'm if someone's doing something destructive to themselves and there's a way in the middle of it I don't know how to encourage them so I don't know how to encourage Johnny this is a nightmare this is an absolutely stupid but decision it's all a horrible decision it should not happen it should stop immediately there's so many things wrong with that I can't count them all and but there's no stopping people that are you know bound to the turn around the car and all wall no pun intended but our you know to start with buying a ninety thousand dollar dump truck the break even on that if he were to pay cash for it doing halls is astronomically long it's a dumb business decision add to that the fact that he's financing it add to that that he took the down payment of the four oh one K. add to that he has no business sense at all because he quit his job and he has absolutely no customers lined up and he's going to go broke so now I can't really encourage him if it's not him but he may be not now but god I mean unless you can put duct tape around his man and keep him out that truck dealership back I'm gonna have trouble encouraging you your duct tape him to a chair maybe I don't know I think that's kidnapping though maybe you don't do that but so this has to stop it's a bad idea for about seven reasons it really does not need to go through okay if he if he wants to go in the dump truck business he needs to get out of that save some money by a fifteen or twenty thousand dollar truck make that truck make money that he paid cash for and then use the cash to make another truck make money and then grow a fleet of trucks but you don't go ninety thousand dollars in debt to haul rock and dirt yeah this is just a bad business move it's a bad idea so I I'm not yelling at you I'm just scared for yeah I'm scared I don't know what to and I don't you know in your you know he's already the blow down on the couch are already out of the barn I don't know how to get him back in he's already way down the road on this there's no put the brakes on this Bob so I don't know if there's any way you guys can stop this even if you lose some money and delay this I want him to be in business I if he wants to be a trucking business I want to be a trucking business I want him to live his dream but when people live their dreams and violate seven principles in the process that dreams become nightmares yeah and that's where you're headed this is not going to end well so please play this back for him tonight I want him to live his dream but this is not gonna work I mean there's nothing in the mathematics here that works Chuck here's here's what's going through my head okay and and I'm I'm the problem is I do maths so here's the if you take what he gets paid per load and how many loads he can do in a day he can't even pay as payments in the DC metro area he seems to think you can't always seems to think he can but he's the same guy made all these other distractions so I don't really care about his math skills I'm telling you the DC metro area is not that they don't you're not hauling cold over there there's the you know they're not paying you in gold bars to haul the stuff around this is it's he's gonna get slayed I don't know I don't I don't know what to tell you you gotta stop him that's what I will tell you that's what I would tell you and then you call me so I'm I can't just sit here and go along

had a question my company's benefits package just opened and we currently have an E. PO but I know you've suggested in the past that HSA is better not to go the difference being is that my wife is pregnant right now in August you do the EPL yeah yeah because it's gonna have a very low deductible probably a hundred percent coverage on the delivery of the even if the premium on the HSA is four hundred seventy five dollars less monthly yeah wow what what is the HSA coverage for the labor and delivery our eight fifteen percent chance and then the Max out of pocket for an individual is not second to labor and delivery usually falls in a different category are you sure it's that's true for the labor and delivery yeah unfortunately before we used to have a look here were covered labor and delivery okay doesn't again what does the HSA cover for labor and delivery it's the same deal worked out what we're doing okay then I'm wrong then I'm wrong you need to do the HSA especially for four hundred seventy five dollars but mostly PO's cover labor delivery hundred percent that's what jumped on that but now I think you're probably you're probably onto it ahead of me I think you I think you have the answer before I got to you Sabathia HSA usually is gonna be the route to go unless you've got a pending event of some kind right in front of you like a labor delivery that the calculation on that and then you may want to do the E. P. O. for one year listen there are some basic things that you should be doing to take care of your family a roof over their head food to eat even if it's rice and beans a car.

Don't really talk to either of them. May younger sister, and I never live together, and never had much of a relationship, and my older brother, and I did live together. And we fought all the time and I'm afraid that I'm going to somehow do the same thing to my family and have children. Don't wanna talk to me or children. Don't wanna talk to one another.
