"Newspaper reports that electrically dance all about its circumference as the colored lights flicked along the column. The crowd begins to chant at his son at his son. It's incredible experiment that took a young alva- hundreds of tries to get right now stands before the world with hundreds of working edison lights under the general electric banner behind the column is a cavalcade of edison inventions including arena of two thousand five hundred different symbols but the company lighting most of this exposition. Certainly doesn't miss. It's a chance for display on the north side of the exhibit. Just down from the general. Electric banner is an electrified gazebo. The words above it read westinghouse electric and manufacturing company tesla poly face system. Here visitors can see the tesla motors as revolutionizing the industry. Yes nikolas old assistant was able to make it viable for georgia's ac lighting and now serbian engineers invention will truly like the world. Visitors can also see necas. Wireless lights up is the system that he demonstrated at columbia college two years earlier. And though not today nikola himself later put on a presentation at the expo displaying his latest developments in steam engines and oscillators and of course he proves the safety of alternating current allowing it to flow through him well along his skin anyway just as he did at columbia college with no harm done to him and a fantastic glow surrounding person. The audience roars with applause. It's hard to overstate the impact. Thomas alva edison and nikola tesla had on the world while others were working on and thinking about the incandescent bulb. It was alva- who made it work in our homes. He and the boys at menlo park not only figured out working bulb as others. Did they developed it on a whole new level with their central power stations. Meanwhile nikolai did the same. For alternating current just as alvin stood on the shoulders of predecessors and competitors it was the idealist serbian immigrant who invented the motor. That changed the game. So next time you turn on a light in your house. Even if it's an led rather than an incandescent pause and think for a minute. How thomas. edison made that viable for your home pause and think about how the alternating current champion. Nikola tesla enabled the power station supplying your electricity to be built so far away. You don't have to see your here at operate. And i don't mean to take away from the many others who contribute to our modern electric twenty century but truly our world would not be what it is without these two and despite the at times nastiness of the war of the currents let me be clear. The men involved were cordial through much of their lives at one point. The new york times even says of nikolai alva- that quote personally. They are warm friends. Close quote now. That might be a stretch. But there's definitely a sense of admiration and respect between these two. Monique lab burns down in eighteen. Ninety five alva- offered him a place at the edison lap and nika returns the favor after a fire. Alvis place nearly twenty years later beyond the money and mayhem. These two inventors dedicated to lighting. America respected each other and so the war of the electric currents over the electric age has truly gone but as gilded age america continues on its path of accelerated growth and change. You like trinity isn't the only aspect of the nation's economy. That's being radically altered about time for us to meet some of the moon setting america's new gold standard or.

"He's just hoping to save his company. See the tide of the current war turned with the botched electrical chair execution but westinghouse electric now has a financial crisis on its hands. The london-based barring bank has made some bad investments of such a magnitude that it caused a panic happily called the barring crisis of eighteen ninety. now george westinghouse's feeling as his bankers tightened their grip on his business as such. He's hoping nikuila might be willing to release him from the royalties owed for the arc lighting system. The serb long ago developed a system. Alva edison passed up. George fears that. If nikolai doesn't let him out of the contract all their boats figuratively seek right along with the future of alternating current the businessman with the walrus moustache cuts right to the chase. Your decision to turns the fate of the westinghouse company. Suppose should refuse to give up my contract. What would you do. Then that events would have to deal with the bankers for. I would no longer have any power in the situation. And if i give up the contract you will save your company and retained control so that you can proceed with your plants and give my ac policy system to the world. I believe your system is the greatest discovery in the field of electrcity is my efforts to give it to the world that brought on the president difficulty but i intend to continue no matter what happens to proceed with my original plans to put the country on an alternating current basis mr westinghouse. You have been my friend. You believed in new and others had no faith. You are brave enough to go ahead and pay me. You supported me. Even other engineers lacked vision to see big things ahead that you are nice are you have stood beside me as a friend. The benefits that will come to civilization from my ac system. Means more to me than the money. Involved mr westinghouse you will save your company to develop my inventions. Here's your contract in my conduct. I will have both of them to pieces and you will no longer have any trouble from royalties. Is that sufficient wile willingly. The high pitched emigrant engineer who came to the united states with a little more than four cents in his pocket has sacrificed one of the most lucrative business opportunities he ever had. Nikolai will later estimate. The royalties could have been worth millions but it was never about the money for him. Nikola ever the idealist just wants to bring power to the whole world. Money be damned. It's just a few months after this. That nikola takes those wireless lights. He's been working on public. Yes this is the story we heard in this episodes open speaking before the american institute of electrical engineers columbia college for a second time nicholas shows his veritable lightsabres a may twentieth eighteen 1891. But before he leaves he is sure to show as trust to recall just how safe alternating current is two hundred fifty thousand volts through the serb. Later the a c. d. c. debate is practically settled among these electrical engineers. The all recognize. Nicholas supremacy here. Harper's weekly declares that quote at one bound. Nikola tesla placed himself abreast of such men as edison brush thompson and graham bell. The greatest electricians of the age. Close quote despite the dc propaganda to the contrary alternating current. Candy you safely and delivers across a power system better than direct current so as the war winds down. What remains of team. Dc following the failure of the electric chair experiment. Harold brown has faded from the discourse leaving the edison as the only public face of direct current but determined as alva- is he can see that the current is turning against him last summer. When william kamler was fried in the electric chair although raked in cash with his company's reorganization as edison general electric. The wizard of menlo park made over a million dollars as the market downturn in eighteen ninety and eighteen ninety one the leadership at edison general electric proposed a merger with one of their ac rivals. Westinghouse or thomson. Houston now given all you've heard about the battle between alva- and george westinghouse is clearly out nor does al the like the thomson houston idea. He's accused them of stealing patents. Plenty of times in the past but in spring of eighteen ninety two our friend and financier j pierpont. Morgan orchestrates the deal to merge the two into one big alternating current company general electric now. What does alva- the man who perfected the incandescent bulb. Think of the deal although he pockets five million in the process. He's not a fan of the hate. Seen his last name. Edison dropped from the company's name. Nor does he love. Being out of the driver's seat alvis secretary. Alfred tate later recalled being the bearer of this bad news to the wizard of menlo park. I never before had seen him change. Color his complexion naturally was a clear healthy pale nece but falling my announcement. It turned his his his caller. Bala keeps a stiff-upper-lip talking to the press about this merger. Here's his public statement. I can always my time on. Electric lighting matters for they are old. I cease to worry about those things ten years ago and i have a lot more new material on which to work. Electric lights are too old for me and with that the war of the electric currents is wrapping up the only two real electric companies left generally electric and westinghouse are both employing alternating current systems as they work to like the world. Surely though much of the american public still harbours reservations about alternating current after the last few years of smear campaigns but not to worry alternating current is going to win them in the entire world over in a very big way. It's thursday june. I 1893 soft rain is falling here in chicago illinois at the world's columbian exposition and this sounds familiar. Well that's because you're recalling our visit to the expo in episode eighty nine when we witnessed frederick jackson. Turner declare the frontier closed. In frederick douglass decried the hypocrisy of segregation but in addition to that which we've already covered the columbian exposition is a marvel. It'd be electricity. Indeed one of the expos guidebooks reads quote. The columbian exposition is a magnificent triumph. In the age electrcity close quote starting with president. Grover cleveland flipping a switch on opening day that illuminated nearly one hundred thousand lights. Thousands of spectators have since been amazed by the incandescent bulbs electrifying the fairgrounds. And these aren't edison lights. George westinghouse secured the bid to like the white city. Yes george veto general electric and in so doing he cemented his alternating current system as safe and powerful. But we aren't just here to walk. The usual fairgrounds rainy day. We're here to witness the opening of the expos electric building rain-soaked visitors approached the massive pale neoclassical electric building before its large arch opening stanzi enormous statue of benjamin franklin with famous in key in hand the founding father is a reminder of the humble beginnings of electrical knowledge in the united states and the world is a whole stepping inside the building.

You mr the ever-blunt american inventor asks nikolay now produces a letter of introduction sources conflict whether it's written by charles bachelor who is also back in new york by point or by t. puskas either way. It's a letter from a trusted employee. Whom albinos personally. The old man opens the letter and reads. I know two great men and you're one of them the other is this young man. That's some recommendation. What can i do for you on. How historians and biographers later account the conversation from here at some point seems nikolas. European sense of social hierarchy comes out as he described. Shine his shoes beneath them. Ever the joker alva- response. You will shine your shoes. And you'll like it by the way in recounting. This nikolaou will later say he does begin. Shine his shoes and he does like it. More crucially though. Some accounts say that this thin serve launches into his history working for alvis european office. Then start sharing his ideas on improving the use of alternating current. This the first time mykola and alba find themselves on opposite ends of the direct versus alternating current debate. It could be an according to this version. Allah cuts off the young inventor. Right then and there holed up. Spare me that nonsense. It's dangerous set for direct current in america. People like it and it's all all ever fool with. Maybe i could give you job. Can you fix it. Ships lighting plant. Now we come to an undisputed part of their conversation. A steamship called the organ. This record-setting ship has to failed. Edison dynamos on it. And it's making alva- look bad. Perhaps this eastern european with such a lot of tory letter of introduction can fix it. Nikola is all too happy to take the job. Following this conversation he had straight to the ship docked on the east river not too far from the roebling families newly completed brooklyn bridge and tackles the issue takes working late into the dark hours of the next morning but the industrial engineer finds the shorted out circuits and fixes them on the spot. Passenger ships. incandescent are glowing for sunrise. Nicolau walks back to the edison electric light company. Fifth avenue riding at five in the morning he bumps into alva- and other top company men including charles bachelor. Do any of these guys ever sleep anyhow. Alva- who again likes to kid around greece nikola with a reference to his late job working for batch paris Here's our parisian running around at nights. Nikola then explains he's just returning from the ss oregon and he's fixed it and alastair's at this thin foreigner in complete silence you then turns to english companion and says softly bachelor. This is a damn good man but soon enough. This good man in alba will.

"And intrigue filled with businessmen tycoons and even death will begin by getting some background on the man. We just met. Nikola tesla will follow the recent immigrant as he meets his boss and hero. Alva edison only have falling out from there. We'll see how the interests of george westinghouse and nikola align and how the westinghouse brand of alternating current lighting systems mount a serious challenge to the direct current loving edison brands dominance. We'll follow this. Escalating conflict through accidental and intentional deaths slander in corporate warfare until we find a winner of sorts at the eighteen. Ninety three world's columbian exposition held in chicago illinois. Much to do as always so. Let's head back a few years and meet nikola as he arrives. Starry eyed at new york's port.

Nikola tesla like his fellow. New arrivals are ever serious. Immigrant makes his way to a circular redbrick. Building sign hangs overhead reading emigrant landing depot and office castle garden filled with nerves. Nikola walks through the port with its course of different european languages s. Thousands of immigrants are coming here for their shot at the american dream. Kalis no different soon enough. The linke figure from eastern europe is standing before a us customs officer the official performances duty and asks nikolaou where he's from the immigrant answers by naming the small village the austro-hungarian empire's military province of leaker where he was born on now. Nikola is a gifted linguist. He speaks french. German italian various slavic dialects. And yes even english. But alas his accent's rather thick so the customs officer doesn't right down this croatian village in the balkans instead pins the first european anything he can think of that starts with an ass ends with an in sweden woops and with that nikola is on his way he steps out of castle garden and gets his first taste of the united states or at least of new york city. The smell of the sea quickly turns to that of industrial soot and equine excrement the hustle and bustle of gilded age new york as almost surreal but the near-constant frenetic pace of all sorts of commerce swirling around him mow certainly bumps into people more concerned with their business. Then those around them nikola might hail from a small village but as a man bucking the family tradition of choosing a career in the clergy or the military. This isn't his first time setting foot in a foreign to him big city his studies include time in prague. He worked at a telephone company. Budapest and more recently. He's been in or at least near. The city of lights itself peres working as a junior engineer at the associated understood of the newly established compania continent edison. Yup that edison thomas alva edison or alva- as close friends and family know him has been plenty busy since opening his pearl street station in september eighteen. Eighty two as we heard in the last episode. The wizard of menlo park isn't content to sell his incandescent light bulbs and lighting system. Just in the us. He's going after the european market as well to that end all the sent his english right hand. Man charles batchelor aka batch across the atlantic to run things from the paris area in. Wouldn't you know it. Nikola soon found himself in batches employees. During this time the lanky engineer rose early each morning to swim. In paris's sende river then walked his job over in italy seal sin. But don't let those glamorous mornings make you think the eastern european wasn't hard at work nicholas so impressed batch that the bearded englishman often sent him around europe to fix dynamos. That is generators. That had gone awry. Who after nikolai completed one of these difficult fixes in presently german controlled strasbourg that his parisian supervisors concluded he might be better off under the hand of the true electrical master. Alva- edison hence nikolai has made the journey here to nyc determined to meet the man or wizard of menlo park rather behind the curtain. Nikolai even hopes to share a few ideas of his own the day. After arriving in the united states equal makes his way to sixty five fifth avenue. in new york city. He walks up the steps of the four story. Brownstone building who sign proudly proclaims. The edison electric light company wants inside. Nikolai looks around taking into luxurious furnishings. Of the edison electric headquarters. The whole of. The first floor is outfitted with the finest chandeliers and electric lamps. They have to offer the decor very much intended to impress wealthy visitors and encourage them to buy well played alba. Well played the upper floors offer. Temporary lodging for edison employees as well the school of sorts like company university where newer hires can pick up the basics of electricity's. Anyhow enough on the building it's time for one of nikolai's greatest dreams to come true meeting the wizard of menlo park himself. Thomas alva edison. The immigrant engineer makes his way toward alba's office. He finds the hero seated at his desk. What a contrast these two men make your stand. Nikola tesla a lanky. Dark-haired man of culture sophistication formal education. A man who loves insights poetry in various languages and despite having hardly sent to his name dresses in the kind of suit. One would expect to see here. Among the wealthy new yorkers a fifth avenue opposite of him sits t- alva- edison a stocky. Light haired man of practicality little formal education a man who despite having gained fame and fortune isn't one for fancy suits or putting on airs and delights in the simplest unrefined things like a cheap cigar or plug of tobacco except for their love of all things electric.

And just what a little kid would do selling veggies and building. His own lab already makes alvis something of a unique child. But that's just the start of it by eleven years old. He built his own homemade telegraph. Which you think connects to his friend's house about one and a half miles away. It's also about this time. He starts to lose his hearing. You'll find various theories out there as to why but we don't know for sure what we do know is that his hearing loss is severe. Although later report that. I haven't heard a bird seen since i was twelve years old. Alva- doesn't let his disability holding back though even calls it a blessing as being almost completely deaf. Let's him tune out distractions nor does it damage confidence. The intellectually curious in entrepreneurial minded youth will continue to seize opportunities and think outside the box demonstrates those traits rather boldly as a teenager living through the civil war. It's mid morning wednesday april ninth eighteen. Sixty two fifteen year. Old alvis descended from a train. Car in detroit michigan. The mostly deaf teen can't hear much but he sees large crowds anxiously reading around newspaper bulletin boards wanting to know with the fusses about he approaches reads and learns that last sunday it confederate army surprised union forces camping near shiloh church in south western tennessee. It was a bloodbath. The civil wars worst up to this point as the crowd absorbs the horror of thousands of casualties alvis scratches down the main headlines then dashes off to the telegraph operator here at michigan central station c. l. has been selling newspapers and candy on train cars for over a year by this point.

"It's sunday morning. October nineteenth eighteen seventy nine arena. Quiet rural new jersey neighborhood called menlo park where a handsome two story grayish white. Clobbered cited building with two chimneys sits on a hill it's a curiously elongated structure. The building measures over one hundred feet in length but more curious still is its upper level. The whole floor is a single massive room thousands of variously shaped and colored bottles containing chemicals of every kind line the shelves walls punctuated by windows tables dot the room in on. These are microscopes crucibles magnifying glasses in all sorts of other instruments. The also find batteries and one corner musicians will be glad to know. There's a cabinet oregon. This is a place of creation innovation. Invention. this is the laboratory of the thirty two year old inventor presently obsessed with creating a long lasting and thus commercially viable incandescent. Light thomas alva. Edison alva- and yes the inventor does go by his middle name. Sits attentively in a chair is blue. Green is fixated as he cautiously watches the liquid metal known as mercury to send long vertically oriented tube on his spring style vacuum pump. The mercury's flow suctions air from a pear-shaped glass or bowl. Attached via a second tube. This glass bowl is latest. Iteration of an incandescent light but before he sends electricity's through its copper wires and across the thread connecting them or film it as it's called the brown haired inventors using this pump to remove as much air from the ball possible. That's how he gives his little filament of fighting chance of not burning to a crisp trista zaps it with temperatures as high as five thousand degrees fahrenheit. See those temperatures are why the film is the key thing here. Alva- would have a marketable incandescent light. If only he could find something able to take the heat. He's performed countless experiments over the past year. And this time. He's using carbonized. Cotton thread here. We go again. The mercury starts pulling sizable air bubbles. Al now heats glass bulb with an alcohol flame thus expanding the remaining gases inside who this delicate work one mistake and days of effort will go to waste but as the hours pass. Things continue smoothly. The mercury is now dripping faster. One of alvis assistance nineteen year old francis gel grabs the jar collecting mercury at the bottom of the pump. Replaces it with a new one. Then ascends a stepladder deported. Liquid back into the contractions reservoir. Meanwhile alva- cautiously starts using a battery to provide any electrical current to the bulbs to wires the flow of mercury continues to evacuate air from pear-shaped glass as the film inside. Glose after ten hours of this. The bulbs ready. It's time to see if this filament is the ticket. Alva- turns to his bespectacled moustachioed glass blower ludvig bowen and instructs him to seal off the ball. Young francis gel and the old man is t- alva- edison is often called despite being relatively young himself. Now settle in to see how long it last and at this point. Well i'll at francis. Tell it i quote edison and i cut it death. Watch to know any convulsions. Or any last symptoms. The lamp might give when expiring the lap however did not expire in the morning. We were relieved by bachelor. Upton enforce the lamp continued to burn brilliantly all that day passing the twenty four hour mark who were stirred with hope as each hour past bets were made. In general good humor existed all around. The night of the twentieth of october again brought quiet to the laboratory as the watch continued this time composed of edison bachelor during the night between the twentieth twenty-first edison judging from the appearance of the lamp. Still burning without flaw seemed satisfied that the first solid foundation of future of electric lighting had now been laid. The lamp held out. Hero equate that night and the following day until between one and two o'clock in the afternoon of tuesday october. Two thousand eighteen seventy nine. It attained more than forty hours of life the longest existance yet achieved by an incandescent lamp. Edison now yielded to temptation as often before in his experimental work to force. The lamp was successively higher voltages until in a dazzling brightness. It gave out is this it. Well maybe while alba. Edison agrees with francis gel. That this bill for more than forty hours. It will ride their accounts in the twentieth century on the other hand there colleague charles bachelor won't refute them but his day to day records. Don't mention this experiment. He does however describe a bulb they prepare on october twenty first which then lights beautifully for thirteen and a half hours on october. Twenty second before surviving yet. Another hour still after they crank up the juice d. Two men present misremembered the same incredible event in the same way or did charles who is busy preparing more filaments for future experiments as the other two. Prepared this forty plus. Our bulb somehow not noted that. I can't tell you but whether one or both versions are right. Alva and his team have found that a carbonized cotton thread can make an electric light run for several hours and the inventor concludes quote. It will burn that number of hours now. I know i can make it. Burn hundred quote if alba's right about making it run longer than he. The wizard of menlo park has truly defeated the dark of night and is on the cusp of bringing about a radical revolutionary. Change the united states world for that matter will never be the same.
Thomas Alva Edison: Inventing the Light Bulb
"And yes the inventor does go by his middle name. Sits attentively in a chair is blue. Green is fixated as he cautiously watches the liquid metal known as mercury to send long vertically oriented tube on his spring style vacuum pump. The mercury's flow suctions air from a pear-shaped glass or bowl. Attached via a second tube. This glass bowl is latest. Iteration of an incandescent light but before he sends electricity's through its copper wires and across the thread connecting them or film it as it's called the brown haired inventors using this pump to remove as much air from the ball possible. That's how he gives his little filament of fighting chance of not burning to a crisp trista zaps it with temperatures as high as five thousand degrees fahrenheit. See those temperatures are why the film is the key thing here. Alva- would have a marketable incandescent light. If only he could find something able to take the heat. He's performed countless experiments over the past year. And this time. He's using carbonized. Cotton thread here. We go again. The mercury starts pulling sizable air bubbles. Al now heats glass bulb with an alcohol flame thus expanding the remaining gases inside who this delicate work one mistake and days of effort will go to waste but as the hours pass. Things continue smoothly. The mercury is now dripping faster. One of alvis assistance nineteen year old francis gel grabs the jar collecting mercury at the bottom of the pump. Replaces it with a new one. Then ascends a stepladder deported. Liquid back into the contractions reservoir. Meanwhile alva- cautiously starts using a battery to provide any electrical current to the bulbs to wires the flow of mercury continues to evacuate air from pear-shaped glass as the film inside. Glose after ten hours of this. The bulbs ready. It's time to see if this filament is the

It's not scary. It's really just different conflict. Greatest coming together to help each other out into generally elevate each other shows. These are the three most. Common collaboration types as received one is the guests up. A lot of people have seen. It is most of the time interview a little interview. Focus podcast bringing experts bring out the host talk about predefined topic and then figure out what they where they have differing opinions where they are aligned in generally. It's a fun experience on just being in the show in having other ways of collaborating this is often that you can be guessed you yours. You only bring guests in a corporation scenario.

Outhacking the Hackers: The Future of Cybersecurity
"Hey alva janet. Tell us more about this attack. It's my understanding. It had a cascade effect and the breach ended up affecting between eight hundred and fifteen hundred businesses and like a dozen countries. Yeah and not only did it. Impact hundreds of businesses. One of the most shocking. Things about this story is that kosei knew it was vulnerable a dutch cybersecurity group warned kosei about their weaknesses nearly three months before the attack. We contacted them on the sixth of april. This cybersecurity researcher victor gevers. He helps lead. The dutch institute for vulnerability disclosure. That's a group of volunteers who are software engineers data journalists and students by day and so called ethical hackers by nights we have a mission under the to make the digital ward safer by reporting on this we find in online and digital systems gevers in his colleagues scan the internet looking for weaknesses and software. That could be potentially exploited by cybercriminals when the dutch team found seven potentially dangerous weaknesses in cassia software. Back in april they made recommendations for how the company could and should tighten up their cyber security and action. The dutch team recommended. That kosei affixed the seven vulnerabilities. Within three months the goal was to beat cybercriminals to the punch. Here's dan timpson casillas chief technology officer one of the things that we could ask a lot is. Will you gotta heads up like why. Didn't you fix it faster. But i'm sure that you can appreciate some. Bugs are more difficult to fix than others. Cassia was almost done. I july second. The company says it had fixed four of the original seven bugs and had started patching the final three. But they weren't fast enough. Timpson says that just a few days before the internal deadline. The bad guys noticed an open door and they entered.
The Power of Justice Centered Parenting With Rachel Alva
"I neo me. I'm andy how are you good. how are you doing. I'm good good good. Well we are very excited to have rachel here today. Hi how are you hi. i'm doing well. Thank you so much for having me. We're so where would you like your story to begin before. I jump into my story. I liked start by sharing. That i'm calling in from the stolen land of the coast salish peoples also known as the pacific northwest. And i say this to thank and honor those who have for thousands of years protected and cared for the land but now sustains me and also to draw attention to the reality that none of us were born into a culture of justice. Sometimes when i share my story there are parts. That might sound like sensational or shocking. But nothing in. My family's history is particularly surprising when you consider that i live in a country that was built on much worse stolen land and the stolen lives of enslaved people and for those most egregious things to have occurred. Violence in harm. Had to be normalized all kinds of ways throughout our culture so my story. I'm going to begin before i was born. There are a lot of people who came before me who shaped my life. But today i want to zoom in on my grandma audrey So audrey was sixteen in the early nineteen sixties. When she got pregnant she married my grandpa. Jimmy who was twenty six at the time. She gave birth to my uncle and then a year later when she was only seventeen. Gave birth to my dad. And i don't know what happened with audrey jimmy or where he was when one night. She went out partying with friends. She left her toddlers at home with her. Mom migrate grandma to babysit and she didn't come home right away when she was expected. how long her mom waited for her to come home but her mom called child protective services and they removed the boys and from what i can tell place them with a family for adoption right away
Federal prisoner Brandon Bernard executed despite pleas from celebrities, jurors
"Administration carried out its ninth federal execution of the year. Last night. Last minute clemency pleas for Brandon Bernard were rejected celebrities and a former U. S prosecutor had taken up his cause. George Hale from member station. W F I U has more fans flooded Donald Trump's Twitter account for a week after Kim Kardashian West asked for help trying to save Bernard's life. But late Thursday it was the mother of a murdered youth minister of plotting the president's decision to let the execution go forward. The family have Todd Bagley would like to thank President Donald J. Trump. Attorney General William H. Bar and the Department of Justice. Todd and his wife, Stacy, were visiting Texas in 1999 when a group of young men kidnapped them, hoping to empty their bank accounts. Hours later, the couple was locked in the trunk of their car when the gang's ringleader fatally shot them. Both. Bernard was a low ranking member of the gang and followed orders to set the car on fire. Federal officials executed shooter, Christopher V. Alva in September. They also moved to set an execution date for Bernard. Supporters of Bernard insist he had no idea the all the planned to shoot anyone. He was also only 18 at the time. That wasn't part of the original kidnapping. But prosecutors managed to convince a mostly white jury to send us both young black men to death. The majority of surviving jurors later changed their minds about Bernard. So did Angela Moore, a former U. S prosecutor who helped defeat Bernard's appeal. Mr Bernard was not planning on any kidnapping or killing to happen. Mr Real of Awas More wrote in an op ed in the Indianapolis star detailing her objections to Bernard's execution. That's when Kim Kardashian West got involved tweeting the essay to her nearly 70 million followers. Trump listens to West before he once hosted her in the White House alongside prisoners he had granted clemency. The Stars Support offered rare hope to an inmate scheduled to die under a Supreme Court stacked with death penalty supporters. Hours before the execution, Bernard's defense, added attorneys and Trump backers Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz to the team. They sought a 14 day stay to review the case. But any hope of Trump intervening, faded late Thursday. As prison officials gathered witnesses and the execution went forward Kardashian West took to Twitter soon after our system is so eft up, she said. The next federal execution is set for tonight.

Sexual abuse a problem for the whole UN system
"The un's first of victims rights advocate. Jane jenkins has confronted uncomfortable reality sexual abuse. And it's haitian or s a short carried out by un personnel. Most reason report detailed eighty s cases aren't peacekeeping and political missions in one thousand nine hundred and ninety five allegations recorded at other un entities three years on from the start of her mandate which began in september. Two thousand seventeen. I spoke to him as connors. Who said that. Since it's become more apparent at the ongoing issue of sexual abuse and exploitation goes beyond the peacekeeping sector we saw in two thousand and eighteen very the early part the allegations relating to oxfam in haiti which made it clear that humanitarian engage in this behavior. I think there's been a big movement. I don't know how much i i mean. It's very difficult to assess yourself in terms of achievements. But i think the understanding that we have a system wide problem worth more than a problem and that a victims rights approach has to be taken system wide I think that's now understood. The implementation is more complicated We're moving in the right direction. These victims trust has been abused. The trust in the united nations has been abused. How then is it possible for you to convince victims that you as the as the right field rights advocate. You'll team are people that can be trusted. The field victims rights advocates. They are individuals who are able to generate trust and certainly where abuses concerned Jeff neatly are an sexual sexual exploitation. Also definitely this Affects trust in the organization but at the same time There is a little bit of research on what people feel even in the context. Where in abuse and exploitation they do feel that the united nations has more to offer in very difficult situations than even in contexts where Trust has been abused to To a certain to a high extent but in the context of the work of the field victims rights advocates. They send a lot of time with. Were we describe as community based complaints networks in other words with Community structures which are more or less comprised of the desert various in various context police. The religious bodies. I'm a children's rights bodies women's rights bodies etc and They engage with a lot of capacity building information sharing and things of that nature and they also make it clear that They are available to have complaints brought to them and more than that they do. Concrete things in order to deal with the issues that confront Confront victims and in general what they are interested in is medical attention psychological care ways to put them in a position where they can gain livelihoods and if they have children born of sexual exploitation and abuse. They really want to say efforts. Some real efforts put in place. So that The parental responsibility of the father of the child is brought to bear and That's that's really does Re rebuild trust in an anonymous way just small things. i mean. they're not really that small. If you're the person involved One of my victims rights advocates Recently worked with the ministry of women are in one of the countries to ensure the bank accounts could be established for women with With successful claims relating to the fathers of their children and that's difficult to see we failed to remember. There are practical things. You can't get remittances if you don't have a bank account. You can't get a bank account if you don't have a job so it's those nitty gritty. Little things really go a long way to rebuild. Trust i've seen it happen. I went to an example. I can give you is. I went to haiti in april. Two thousand and eighty. I met with the women with children who have unresolved paternity claims. It was an uncomfortable meeting as you could imagine. And they were very forthright. They said we've seen people like you before you come. You talk to us you tell us oh laced wonderful things then you go away. We hear nothing. And i said to them what what would make things different for you. And they talked about the fact that their kids couldn't go to school. And i said well i can't promise anything but i will do my best And i was able with the help of the victims rights advocate there at the time Moved on now to get a little bit of money pulled together which supported school fees and And school supplies for these children. And apparently he the feel victims. Rights advocate met with these women at the end of two thousand and eighteen. And they sit him. She kept her promise. And it just makes a big difference. I mean knows a. It's the things that really Work a small step can rebuild. Trust to to a great extent kind of collaboration. Are you getting from member. States from the countries contributing troops some of whom have committed these abuses is clearly a very important part of facilitating paternity tests making of accountability house. I it will depend on the relevant member state but but there have been some very encouraging encouraging steps food with regard to Several member states In particular with regard to paternity claims. This is i really do. Focus on. Accountability generally is Something that i do. Focus on within that context. I focused on what is spoken of move by the victims and that is the issue of The support that the father should give to a child born sexual exploitation and abuse. So i've i've put a big focus on that a narrow encouraging signs with regard to some states we had a very interesting A webinar with member states about three weeks ago with south africa talked about The steps it's taking with respect to Some of its troops with regard to paternity claims so are the signs are encouraging and when you have one two states who step forward that creates an interesting of the states who don't want to be left behind so to speak and in in view of that we are convening. I'm with with the conduct. Disciplined service with I am convening a working level meeting Next year on resolution of paternity claims Within the states and Hopefully we'll be able to to developer sort of coherent roadmap least forgot to the way four but all i can say is the signs are encouraging I'm i'm suppose something unusual. Un staff member. I would say things are encouraging rather than brilliant and it is a price they said. It's bringing everybody along but if you had some states who going forward that will really encourage others now. This of course should never happened. Sexploitation abuse by angle but particularly people. Who are supposed to be the protectors. Do you think now office three years. This is something that can be stopped or is it really just a question of mitigating. This fisher well it you know. It's a un staff member. This behavior is very Not only is. It is very hurtful to victims obviously to communities flies in the face of what we're supposed to be doing and of course it. It hurts other stuff members that who feel the which This is this is just a a a betrayal of the oval the ideals about seventy five. He is of a organization I am never i. I don't think that the behavior is inevitable and accordingly. I think the behavior is a behavior that can be stoked I think come. I think i think we have various levels of perpetrators however so some Some they will be Some may will be perpetrators Bound to perpetrate. If you know what. I mean But often a matter of Alva different power extreme vulnerability situations in extreme vulnerability and opportunities. So i think there'a the the issue of the power imbalances something. That's certainly we can. We can deal with addressing the whole culture of exploitation moving into that abuses. Something we can do. But it needs a lot of work and It needs some consistent work. We can see that it's possible to change behavior. It may be more difficult to chain attitude. But i think certainly from my point of view. The behavior can be stopped juicy. Very good examples. I saw in one of my visits Worker for police commissioner. Who had put in place various In in a in a particular context where Whether there was the the police who engaged in the the Police from the police contributing countries that engaged in a lot of sexual exploitation abused road right down by really paying attention to mitigation measures looking at early warning just continually raising consciousness of the total unacceptability of the behavior. And this had worked. The numbers had definitely come down. So things can be done and of course the basic issue is that we're working in contexts. Where those who do become subject to this Conduct often in a very often considered Contextual consideration of women and children in some of these contexts is is pretty bad also so they have the legal framework policy framework doesn't necessarily won't put women on women and children on the same level as men. The behavior which is engaged in by on u n personnel tolerated in the broader community. It requires a lot of work and not just in an isolated way but Also dealing with the challenges that confront those who are in extremely vulnerable situations in the countries where we operate.
The Boys is worth watching and it's getting a college spinoff
"AM talking about the boys season two yet on this podcast I think boy season two is terrific. It is. It captures what made the best of the in one work for me hit the ground running every episode of Season Two's been as the best season one. I know this is a controversial show this podcast because. Chris. Disagree very strongly about the show in a way that maybe the most of his group with him about anything. In our time to work in slash film. I think season two of the boys is the kind of angry vicious funny satiric wildness that we need right now is targeting all the right targets and using a superheroes to stand in for. Alva grievances against, Celebrity Government Military Corporate Corporation. A blended all in a way that makes the matic censor feels modern. And some who read a lot of the comic before it was. Before I decided Nah stop because it was bad mesh of start in the first place it makes me smart adaptation choices like For example, as a character in the comic who's literally a beefy German goths on his chest he was a Nazi superhero in this one that connected to be. A young attractive woman with a cool haircut whose social social media savvy and. Hides her white supremacists. Breads permits leanings in the idea rallying against pc culture and it's really chilling villain in a in a show of characters. She is very upsetting to watch and wait until modern can't wait for the show to take her down as it does all it's great villains. So that's the boy season to it airs. Or arrives every new episode and Friday it's over halfway through the season now I, can't believe it's almost like he's just come to episodes left now and I be watching it tonight and his podcast finish work in her watch the boys. Jacob Real quick. Would you call the boys an ugly show not from a visual perspective, but just like its worldview is, is this a show that will make you feel like scum after watching it? This is this is where Chris I disagree Chris. Chris can jump in if he wants to the first season, may Chris feel bad. He's talked about this before in the show in his review on the site. And he's not watching these for that reason. But for me I think. The show is about people in a bad world trying to escape that bad world trying to throw the battery. And I, leave the show each week feeling angry but ready to fight supposedly Brung down and brought down by I mean people are completely out different reaction to it but I I never feel like if you take a shower after watching, it's bloody has as a can because it is incredibly violent show. If of Nastiness I, it's always funny enough and always just hopeful enough to a key character is to keep the light shining. Christie have no interest in an checking out seasons you. Know I I can't say I do it's just. It's not it's not for me and that's fine. You know that has to be for me for sure Jacob are excited about the spinoff that they just announced of the boys know it sounds like the worst part of the boys. The. Comic is the worst part. The comic is that. Garth Ennis writer whose work I have liked before. Lean very heavily on warfare superheroes, but perverts leaned on that all the time whereas the TV show leans on that maybe once or twice every so often and Setting up spinoff where it's a bunch of young sixty pros in college with hijinks sounds like the worst parts of that comic being brought to life. You know whether superheroes and they're gonNA have sex all the time. No superheroes in the show are very much. Representations is wrong with you know the world and the people who are fighting against that. So I don't think I need to watch the show about those

funeral there was a bunch of different people running the funeral but that there was a moment where they stopped and they said with all public officials please stand up and I I thought that said an awful lot there was a guy that was talking about yesterday he's a professor he's a he's with the Hoover Institution isn't at Stanford University he's a conservative African American and he said white liberals are to blame for all the race problems we have an American his theory is is that it was last name is steel his first name I can look it up real quick but his theory was that one when you passed all the civil rights laws and all those things in the nineteen sixties that government said all right black America we are going to take care of you like the Kentucky governor who says I will provide one hundred percent free health care to all black residents of Kentucky that's very very typical of what this professor is saying about lip white liberals are the ones who said we will take care of you and it to me is called plantation politics we will take care of you poor black people in America because you're not capable of taking care of yourself so we will come up with all these wonderful programs to take care of you so as wrong is that he is wrong how racist that is what does happen is that there's a lot of people and not not at all all of them but it was a lot of people and and black communities that are going wait a minute they said they would take care of us and we're not getting to it we're not being taken care of very well and we're not liking this and they're angry and they're upset because they were promised we will take care of you and if somebody if I promised you Mike I'm good I'm sorry bill we're gonna take care of you and I don't we're gonna say what's wrong with that guy I don't like him I think that's where we are with all of us so it it's it's made racism worse than it has to be and you're right al Sharpton is on the next flight out whenever there is a black person killed by a white police officer he's there I saw an African American commentator on one of the cable channels this morning talking about that the conversation that you brought up that black leaders don't want to have which is the black on black crime they don't want to have that conversation do not bring it up Tom can I say one more thing and I'll let you go I know you got a lot of people on hold.

"With Thomas Alva yes you are and thank you for coming by welcome welcome welcome to the big radio show and tapi Tuesday to U. twenty fourth day of March two thousand twenty my name is Tom Sullivan so the the big the big story today is the president wants the country to go back to work as soon as possible he was talking about after the fifteen day areas over which would be next Monday but they even said yeah but about a few days after that so and then he said by Easter he would like to see the country back up and going packed churches on Easter Sunday which is April twelfth so the question comes down to how long will this go on everybody keeps asking that question and so I've got a couple different people here to that weigh in on the Scott Gottlieb Dr Scott Gottlieb he was the former FDA commissioner he was asked this very question out of the van the audio gets a little more boldly in the middle of this but it's just a few seconds but he makes a very good predictions let's listen for one weekend service in most of the places where you have sustained commute transmission that we know about so it's going to be another three four weeks until we see the peak of the epidemic curve and in regions like New York and that's the hopeful case once you hit a peak in the number of cases and you start to come down that epidemic curve you can start to substitute in case based interventions interventions that target individuals who are infected with the virus for population based mitigation population wide measures like we have now lockdowns close businesses and so you can slowly take your foot off the brake of population based mitigation and press down S. case based interventions and hopefully we have more screening in place and that's gonna help us do that but we need we have another three maybe four weeks to go until we get there in New York and in the New York tri state area and it is the card but later published at bye bye your doctor will be Sierra Chicago look concerning Washington DC metro area looks concerning probably San Francisco Seattle around a similar time line to New York in terms of when it started and where they are right now no so another words we don't have to have the the brakes at all we don't have to have this shelter in place once the virus is past its peak and starts coming back down then you can take your foot off the brake and then do a case based in other words they use go back to the way medicine usually is great it is you're sick okay the doctor will treat you but we don't have to lock down the whole community just because we have a handful of people that are sick right now there's more than a handful and as he went on to say that it will then move around in that Washington state and California are probably like New York but a little bit behind three to four weeks before we get to the peak governor Cuomo was talking about we're gonna peak in fourteen days according to his help that the experts so somewhere as far as she said the president would like to get us back to where we were and get the economy moving again to get people back to work but he's talking well the even the president's talking about the next Monday which is not that far away all the way out to two and a half weeks from now but Scott Gottlieb is talking about three to four weeks at least for New York but then then he's he's in implying that it's going to then be hot spots in other places and they will have to be restricted so is going to move around the country and different ways at different times so Dr Peter Hotez from Baylor University he was asked all right the president wants to get us back to work a sap what would you tell the president.

A Third Verdict Finds Roundup Caused Cancer
"The couple in this case are a couple of their seventies alva- alva- pill Yod there in the San Francisco Bay area and they've used roundup on their property for thirty five years, and they say that. That extended roundup us gave them both non-hodgkin's lymphoma, and this is the third award against Bayer. Yes, this is the third award since August in trials over a roundup safety the first back in August sent the stock reeling. And then there were two verdicts of both this month also all in the San Francisco Bay area. Also bear is facing a shareholder revolt connected to this since the company purchased Monsanto last year Monsanto makes the roundup weed killer urbicide at the center of the suits shareholders have not responded favorably today's verdicts, they've lambasted the company and last month, they had a vote of no confidence in the management's actions from the last year, which was the latest signal that they're not happy with this month Santo deal the cases of really clobbered bear stock haven't they? Yes. Since the first jury verdict in August. The stock has fallen some thirty percent. And we'll see what happens this week after this third verdict in how many total claims are there the tyrod up to cancer their current? Around thirteen thousand four hundred claims time ran up to cancer, which is a pretty extraordinary number even in these mass torts cases of this one has accelerated quite quickly since the first jury verdict came out. No will this jury award stand or is the judge likely to cut the amount as happened in the first two verdicts. So the biggest part of this award is two billion dollars in punitive damages when those are damages that are awarded essentially to send a message to the defendant to try to correct their behavior than rest of it is fifty five million dollars in compensatory damages which are awarded for things like past economic loss in future economic loss to the couple and so oftentimes juries will award these massive amounts of punitive damages and on appeal or even from the same judge that oversaw the trial. They often get cut down, for example, in the first case that went to trial. There was a pretty large punitive damage award that the jury that the judge rather cut by more than two hundred million even before it. Up on appeal to the next level of court, so often these punitive damages or easy to dole out by Jerry. But they get ratcheted back with zero. What's the big question? Going forward facing these lawsuits. The big question now is whether and win these cases will ever reach a settlement on the company seems to be saying it's still too early. They say this litigation will take a long time. And none of these appeals from the earlier trials have gone through yet. And others. Have also said that the company should probably wait, and is likely to wait until appeals have been processed before they even think about settlement. But as the investor pressure ratchets up, it seems like the company has to either change its Trump strategy or do something to move toward resolution. So it doesn't hang on with over them for years to come shares in buyer where nearly three percent lower this morning in early trading in Europe.

Thank you for the call on. I can't hear I can't sit here and entertain the idea of the Mets bringing in Alva Peres, I will argue that Oliver Perez was the worst maybe not the worst. But the dumbest signing in the history of the franchise because there was nobody the first obviously, there was nobody competing with the Mets for Alva Peres. He already showed you what he could do by walk in the ballpark and being erratic. Why would you give him at the time three years thirty six million dollars? When a he wasn't very good and be nobody else's offering them anything. You want back that bay give them a one year deal one year five million? You could do better go do it. No, they give them three years thirty six million with nobody competing for him. When he was ready. Look, I'm telling you. I hated the signing at the time. So there's a reason why hated it.
