How to Make Your City an Entrepreneurial Hotspot
"Brad Feld welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. I'm delighted to be here. Brad. You've been a leader of the early stage investor for a very long time. In fact, you found I think one of the most important startup institutions techstars. How did you get started in this whole startup community? Well I started my first company in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven. and. With a partner grew, it was a self funded business. We sold it to a public company in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three. I started making investments as an angel investor with the money that I made from that but I told my wife Amy. That We'd move to Bowl I told her that we'd be we we leave Boston. We're living by tomorrow was thirty. She told me she wanted to move to boulder about two months before I turned thirty and I was welcome to come with her. Sounds like. Right it's kind of. Talk goes sometimes. So we went and we moved to boulder. We knew one person he moved away. So when I moved to Boulder in nineteen, ninety, five, I didn't know anyone. And I didn't really expect to do any business and I was investing on the East Coast to the West Coast flying around all the time. And what's happened over the last twenty five years is not only have I been involved in creating spectacular startup community in boulder. I really got my mind around what a startup community was. I labeled it with my first Burqa two thousand twelve called startup communities. Came up with some fundamental principles around it but importantly. Had Two assertions one every city in the world needs a startup community as part of the engine of the city for long term health and development. The. Second is that as humans we choose to live and bill are like around it rather than go somewhere because as the cliche used to go. If you want to build a Tech Company, you've got to move to Silicon Valley and maybe you in two thousand twelve and it's reinforced today by what's happening around the world is that you can build great new companies anywhere in the world and. The startup communities that have evolved everywhere in the world support preneurs building couples, and that's why I think you're you're the updated version of your book startup, Communities Building Ecosystem in your city, which comes out this month is so important because as I used to travel around when you remember when used to be able to travel by air use again, an airplane Brad and was no problem Oh. Yeah. That was. Can't remember it seems like we used to do that. Maybe even last year I exactly. I would visit these cities against age I would speak and I was an angel investor in the early two thousand people say, well, we can't do that because we're not silicon valley right? We're not boulder. We're not Austin. But as you say it's important and you believe that every city can do that. Where do you start? There's lots of different. Pieces to it. But the very important starting point is to recognize that the leaders of startup community has to be entrepreneurs. So you have to look to and have a critical mass of entrepreneurs in your city. Or committed. To taking a long-term Journey Alec to say at least twenty years. To, build a startup community in that town and it's especially powerful for entrepreneurs. You don't have to be successful you don't have to have had. A multi-billion dollar exit, you just have to be someone who cares about both building companies and building, your company. Entrepreneurs in general intercity, and that's all you need to do to be a leader or there's lots of other people who contribute to the activity in the startup community including lots of organizations city state government? Universities. Nonprofit organizations corporations. But you need this critical mass of entrepreneurial leaders and it's it's important to recognize it. Nobody appoints that it's network not hierarchy right? So you have this emergent phenomenon I and the new book that I wrote with Hathaway, the startup community way. We talk about the startup community growing developing as a complex system. It's not one with deterministic outcome. You have lots of things that are constantly interacting with each other and I'm holding and you come back to this notion of network instead of a hierarchy, there's no president of the startup community. There's no vice president membership or vice president of education. There's just a bunch of people interacting with each other who are playing leadership roles with a focus on growing and evolving and developing. Got Their start up community
Researchers identify biomarkers indicating risk of complications with COVID-19

Big 12 to move forward with plans for fall football season
"Danny Yesterday was a tough day for a college football fan like myself getting a chance. The last couple of years. The host thes Chicago's college tailgate show on Saturdays with Jonathan Hood in Adam Abdullah. I love college football. I love our local teams, and I love professional sports. But there's something special about the pageantry. The passion small college towns that burst into hundreds of thousands of people on Saturday afternoons thie games, the football games itself very exciting, and usually you get to see something on a Saturday in the fall day. I don't usually get to see in an NFL game. Maybe it's a high scoring affair. Maybe it's a great comeback. Maybe it's hitting a nine team teaser that you set up throughout the day that that makes you a bunch of money. It's It's what I do in the fall is I love Saturdays. I'd live for Saturdays. Yes, Very. The news of the Big 10 postponing all fall sports until further notice, and as the quoted here says in hopefully in the spring was disappointing. And then the Pac 12 follow suits and they postpone all sports until the start of 2021. So the key there is. The Pac 12 is postponing football in the fall in fall sports but also college basketball usually starts at the end of October, which the Pac 12 is telling us. They won't start college basketball on time. They will postpone that 2021 It was sad. It was disappointing. We have reports from the Big 12 that there are plans that they continue to head forward and they are planning on playing football. The has been out, saying that their medical reports have suggested that they could continue to play football. Notre Dame is plan planning on playing football in the fall in the sea as well. So Any your thoughts hearing that the Big 10 the Pac 12 that both pulled out of fall sports for collegiate athletes, and in the fall first, I think it's incredibly sad for guys like you and I people listening to us that just love college football, you know, college football season doesn't go off this year. The only sport we're going to have in the months of November, December is the NFL. So we have to really cross our fingers at the NFL. Get this right Or else we're gonna have no sports. Because the MBA is going to be done. The NHL is going to be done. Baseball is going to be done. It's sad for Spectators that liketo watch it. It's incredibly sad for the young athletes. I mean, you know they they've worked their whole lives to get to a point where they're playing sports at a collegiate level. And now to have this ripped away from them is devastating. And I understand How they feel. I understand that they want to play. Listen. When I was 18 to 22 years old. I made a lot of dumb choices, and I probably would have wanted to play too, with a pandemic going on. But I do think that the Big 10 made the right call. I think that The liability issues. You have all these players on all these teams putting themselves in harm's way to play a sport that's making schools. Million's upon billions of dollars. They're getting nothing but a free education, and that's still something but you're putting them at risk. They're not employees like in the NFL. They're they're doing this. To provide themselves in education, But they're also putting their lives on the line to raise a lot of money for their universities. I think it was the right call. I don't know, necessarily if the Big 10 needed to rush to it. You know what happens if the Big 12 pulls this off? They say they're gonna have a nine and one so nine conference games, one nonconference games. What if the Big 12 pulls this off? And they have a successful football season is the big 10 Then sitting there looking like, boy? We we acted too soon.

Biden Leads Trump, 49%-44%, Among Likely Wisconsin Voters in Latest Marquette Poll
"Some new polling shows that things are actually tightening. Now, one poll, there was a national poll, but we don't talk about national polls that had trump down ten points national, completely irrelevant, not applicable at all national polls. Do not matter. Show me state polls, show me trends now Monmouth, which has donald trump down ten points. Nationally had the same in August of two, thousand sixteen. However. There's a Marquette University poll in Wisconsin that shows Biden up five points now, that might seem like bad news. But as we examined some of the new emerging polls on a statewide basis, which is more important. Especially in battleground states, we have a totally different picture. Now, remember you could lose California by eighty points by ninety points, lose the popular vote and still win in a landslide with the electoral college. Also something to consider at these polls polls that conduct something called live collar with cell phones, they tend to skew Democrat why this is what we call the shy trump voter. I add three to four to all these polls. OAS? especially in a presidential, never remember conservatives are much more likely to hide their true political opinions from public view. The presumption is that this includes from pollster if it's live on a phone call and this bears out in the methodologies. So a new poll in Arizona Has Martha mcsally, the incumbent Republican senator who was appointed by Governor, Doug Ducey. She is down five points where she was down nine points and a similar poll previously. Speed look at. Oh, predictive trendline since December, it follows what we'd basically know to be true that trump was ahead at the end of last year and pre pandemic. Then things got really bad. We know that no one is denying it, but the race is tightening in the president's favor. Republican plus two in December to a low, of Democrat, plus nine and plus in May, and now it's improved for trump to Democrat plus for for now. And, now, here's a new promising poll that shows trump is beating biden conducted by Rasmussen pulse opinion in the State of North Carolina. The poll of Seven, hundred, fifty likely voters shows the president beating Biden by a single point when leaners are included. So we can cherry pick polls and there some polls that show trump down in some of these states. But the enthusiasm index is definitely in the president's direction. I think there. There, are some major issues here that are missing from the conversation. If the president can continue to show significant gains when it comes to the Chinese Corona, virus get college football back on the airwaves I think this is how his election lose I? Think he's going to have massive gains and I think the more the president is ahead of the curve on the issue of the economy and law and order the better.
Renewable Energy Needs More Female Leaders and Leaders of Color, Researcher Says
"Transitioning to renewable energy can help reduce global warming. And Jennie Stevens of Northeastern University says it can also drive social change. For example, she says that locally owned businesses can lead the local clean energy economy and create new jobs in underserved communities. We really need to think about connecting climate and energy with other issues that people wake up every day really worried about whether it be jobs housing transportation. Health and wellbeing. To maximize that potential she says, the energy sector must have more women and people of Color in positions of influence research shows that leadership in the solar industry for example, is currently dominated by white men. I think that more inclusive diverse leadership. is essential to be able to effectively make these connections. Diversity is not just about who people are and their identity, but the ideas and the priorities and approaches and the lens that they bring to the world. So she says, by elevating diverse voices, organizations can better connect the climate benefits of clean energy with social and economic transformation.
A Master Class in Resilience With George Mumford
"George. Nice to see you. Too, we were just chatting that the last time we saw each other was over Indian food and right before the world fell apart in the winter So I'm I'm curious I WANNA, ask you a question I've been asking a lot of people recently, but I don't mean it in a perfunctory way in a real way I want to hear the answer which is, how are you so much has happened since I last saw you. including the pandemic, and of course, the all of the tumult following the killing of George Floyd. So I just want to check in and get a sense of how you're. I'm really good actually A. I'm feeling great. And I say that. In. Spite of everything that's going on I. Feel Really. Really. Really. Great. And I am. Able as I like to say, hold the heard in generate the hope. So may would feel things. So few things have happened the last time. I saw you a I think it was after Kobe Bryant had died so I had that was like I say the last Sunday in January. And then the next week, one of my highest grew friends passed away during the week after that, my sister passed away. So I've been dealing with a lot of that even before the covert thing hit. But what are the things did I noticed in very? Hesitant to share with people was that even though those things happen, there was A. I was experiencing piece really didn't get touched by those things. And I and you know and I had done I mean just a little self disclosure. I knew my mother passed away. It would be very challenging because of when I was living at Cambridge insight meditation center. In eighty nine, different six years it was November, twenty, second nineteen, eighty, nine, I started dealing with the what they call a deaf awareness meditation practice. What you start the reflect darn. If I did that we're all going to die We don't give beyond death in that sort of thing because I knew when my mother passed, it was going to be really challenging. and. She didn't pass into two thousand and one. So I had a little time. To work on like twelve years. And I think that I continue to work on that and I think it. Manifested in two thousand twenty. where I could see the fruits of the practice. So a lot of times you do these practices are you develop these ways of being? and. You're not really sure. I'm not really sure how it's going to hold up when when the crab is fan. So. You said a lot there. I just want to point one thing out and then didn't follow up on a couple things you said. A lot of people were upset when Kobe Bryant. Passed away in the helicopter crash. The vast majority of people were simply fans. You actually knew him and taught him how to meditate. So it was a different. I. Just want to highlight that that was personal for you. Not just something that happened as a fan. Yes. Yes. It was very personal for me because we're really close. I get the work with him I work with the Lakers, but also I've had in just be when I was writing my book. he had called me and the asked me to come up. To Newport. Beach way lived and hang out for a couple of days because he wanted to start working. He was still it was in the next to last season in the league, but he was about ready to retire. So I got out and I got the hang out with him a little bit and talk about things. And be interacting with him in his own base where he didn't have bodyguards and wasn't a crowd was just he and I and the people I work with but Annette on Tribu stored with the Lakers. So he asked me so I asked he got the helicopter with him and to bail up to L. A. because he had a game. So really close in when he when I heard about his death I was actually at the University of Richmond watching the women's basketball games when I got the text. Analytics felt like this is a bad joke in this state right and. So that's how I found out about it and it was it was pretty devastating in that same time. I feel like I could continue to do what I needed to do. Create space for that, hurt. And generate dope and first thing I said was I hope his family's not with them. And then I found out his daughter seven other souls were a helicopter.
COVID-19 Impact and Recovery
"All right gentlemen welcome to the show. This has been a long time in the making this particular episode as you both know, we've been dialoguing over the the you know through email after the first covid type production I put together, which was in a Web webinar format. We decided to do this when Moore's a prerecorded livestream instead of doing the Webinar format because. There's a ton of things that we need to talk about and I just think this format makes more sense to get the information out. So I would think both you guys for coming on the show and covering this with me from the standpoint of having much more knowledge about it than I do. So which is which is important. Marcucci when it started just with some some introductions, obviously I did the brief introduction in the open there. But just a more personal introduction mark. Let's start with you who is Mark Fujio, and Why are you on the show today? Let's talk about that and then we'll go to you vincent. Okay. So I. Talk about how we've been friends for a decade if you want. Okay. Yeah. So Yeah I. was going to lead into that the I've been involved in all sorts of different You're leading edge technologies. I've lived in Santa Clara in the Silicon Valley for twenty nine years Known Frederick for about ten years and helped get him out of adobe and into a startup storage company named Robo and You know along at That's when I started listening to the this week in barrage podcast hosted by Vincent. So I've been listening to that show for man. Over over ten years, I think even longer than I've known you Frederick. So. I've had quite an interest in urology Personally last November and a dark Moon it you new moon you know night had an accident coming home where I ran into an Amazon. and. Which I wasn't expecting to be there and shorts long story short. You know I tour the complete tear their quadriceps tendon on my left leg. So I spent basically three months into brace. And then than three months sheltering in place. So, during some of your initial cooeperation obviously had a lot more time to pay attention to things and I remember seeing in sort of late November early December, a little bit of a blurb of news about in new virus coming out of China. So Fast forward So the whole incident about the Chinese doctor who had was fighting it. Got Suppressed and who ultimately died, and then you know what we turned into January. This year just exploded as a story and the US and I don't think anybody can go anywhere and a gathering you know A. Virtual. With the friends or family without covy becoming a major topic of discussion. So I very much enjoyed the the seminar you did you know a couple months ago Frederick and. Be Able to put you in Vincent together to Have a follow up. Survey and that is that is that. That's perfect and that that that. Discussion on Cova we did that you mentioned back in the day that will link to that in the description for this episode, but that was designed to be I think the title of it was. Something around demystifying covid nineteen hundred photographers, but it was turns out photographers are actually human so it doesn't does. It back then it. Doesn't really matter but I wanted to definitely follow up on that since we've done that. So much stuff since we did that. Webinar. So much stuff. Vincent that you're intimate with. In the rest of the world obviously is to a degree intimate with has happened both on the understanding of the virus side of things all the way through to disinformation and the politicization of. The whole mask wearing thing and you're not American if you wear a mask and now you are American if you wear a mask and you know all all this stuff has been happening. So I don't want to make this political but I do want to touch on the politics of that before we before we dive in then can you tell us a little bit about yourself and the podcast this week in virology? Well I am a Professor Virology at Columbia University, which is in New, York. I've been working on viruses for over forty years. I've been doing research on them. I wrote a textbook. I have taught many virology courses and twelve years ago I started a podcast. Decided to call it this week. Envir- Allergy I was inspired by Leo LaPorte. Chipper. Who probably inspired you as well I would guess, absolutely. Father. We have done this for twelve years and at the beginning of this year we noticed this outbreak in China we started covering it and I think almost every episode from the beginning of Twenty twenty now has been about the virus and the disease SARS covy to in Covid nineteen. And you know we have always talked about the threats of new viruses emerging. but they weren't taken seriously enough and we've had big outbreaks. You know we've had big ebola outbreaks. We've had Sika outbreaks, influenza outbreaks, many other viruses, but. I hate to say we were not ready for this. This all could have been avoided quite sadly. So now I am full on in educating people trying to counter the misinformation our listeners have gone way way up. It's just great. We're getting mentioned by Malcolm. Glad. Well, we got in USA Today The New York Times this week. But I think more people need to listen because we really tell it like it is and so that's the story.
"So. Much for joining us. Mentally. IOS, really appreciate you taking the time out today. Could you please start off by telling us a bit about Shaney? What was he like I'm? What did he study? Cheney, you know You know as a normal for the football and basketball saying older all the things you know the the boys night and he. was quite health conscious. He You know he was, and so the normal boy I would say have lots of friends you know had was very popular school. Sort of night, pitchy face and you know the go right Tim. So he was. Quite books you know he? Chaney was an adventure. For instance when we went in Florida and they wanted somebody to come to hold the alligators, you know shady put him. down. He, you know the snake was around his neck. He sort of learned to jet ski and went way out the way out and we lost not to. But he went and then He looked principles in trouble, and of course, He.

Save The Whales. Save The Tigers. Save The Tapeworms?
"Most of us have heard of saving the elephants or saving the polar bears. But what about saving their parasites scientists are increasingly finding that parasites are key part of ecosystems and many risk of extinction NPR's lauren summer explains. When your job is to study parasitic worms, not everyone wants to hear what you do for a living. It's not a popular topic of conversation cocktail parties. I can tell you that Chelsea would is assistant professor at the University of Washington parasites a major public relations problem they're gross and slimy and most people don't really like thinking about them. But the fact is that they're really important in ecosystems would. Says just look at a flat worm she studies in California Ponds I. The parasites starts as an egg inside a bird, the birds about the egg, which infects snails than it goes from the snail to frog, but the parasite needs to get back in a bird to finish its life cycle. So it causes deformities in the frogs legs, which makes it easier for birds to catch and eat them which helps. Sustain. The bird population would says, it shows how humble parasites can influence the entire food web. But if birds are threatened, we're GONNA. See some parasites decline possibly to extinction in the presence of environmental change, which is why team parasitology released a new parasite conservation plan. The first step is simply identifying them of the millions of parasite species only about ten percent are known to science says Schuyler Hopkins of. North Carolina State University. We know nothing about them. We don't need another name Oh definitely don't know what they're doing with the ecosystems. Many parasites are just as vulnerable as their host animals are to climate change and habitat loss but even though an animal may be listed as endangered, it's parasites aren't, but they could be added alongside their more visible hosts. It would be a really great way or easy way. To get a lot of mileage for her site conservation because humans tend to gravitate to animals like us. It is the wolves and the grizzlies and the polar bears mostly the mammals that really get people's attention Jacob Malcolm Works for the advocacy group defenders of wildlife. He says, it's not all bad. That humans focus on those charismatic critters saving their habitat can also help the less charismatic species in their ecosystem. So whatever chances his group launches a save the Leeches campaign pretty close to zero. So now's the time leach lovers of the World Unite Lauren summer NPR news.

But the thing about this particular case that the school is training qualified for training, but not qualified for for providing the compulsory education. So I want to tell people don't tear your kids away from the mainstream education because it's actually violating our long. It's a compulsory education. You have. To make your kids to be part of the society in order in the future that it can live and survive in this -ociety, so you can provide both he should not stop the compulsory education for your kiss.

I mean, resulting death in the family and also I mean, bankruptcy of family and personal financing. And so in this sense, it should be banned. It should be carefully and delicately controlled in this, very particular sense. And I think the two different markets in the US small government big markets, China, big governments and big markets. But then big government steps in more responsible responsibility. And so I applaud the Chinese government efforts in controlling and in cracking down on any use of these kind of drug talking about the business seeking profit. Actually, I have a very good example before New York state lose his marijuana restrictions madman. The company selling the product can't wait to open a medical marijuana start on the Fifth Avenue, ima Hatton. Famous. Upscale district design is different from the smoke failed marijuana shops. One might expect the designs the fresh and classy even looks a bit like apple store. So do think companies shoud have some restrictions from the government. And at least have a sense of social responsibility on this is always a delicate balance that we need to strike in between Lord corporations, which are profit-driven though. So big governments responsible governments thinking in the interest of the general public, right? The people in so I would strongly emphasize the importance of the so-called corporate social responsibility as large corporation twain to promote that I mean, no matter how fencing look on Fifth Avenue, you have to be socially responsible. You have to be a socially aware of the very harmful effects of it. And besides I think that affordability is also a problem of ability. Not all people can afford it. And so in the sense that this is a very highly elitist movement right now, and this vicious cycle. I can see the site, for example, the super rich I want to make the money by producing these products. And then after I earn a lot of money, and I'm going to use part of the chunk of this profit on charity, but come on you have already destroyed some of the people's lives, and then you decided to spend money to save them.

Some people said even less addictive compared to tobacco and alcohol, but it's not the same tobacco and alcohol, maybe harms your lung and your heart when you consume, but this one wants addicted in all the drunk. It destroys your nerve system, and it has a series, really bad, psychological attack on you. We Chinese people. I think we learned a hard lesson because of the opium war Opiant almost destroyed the whole country's spirit. How about you? Professor turn you of professor in university. Do you believe your students if these things happened in China? It's very very risky. I think it's also like mulling said, it was sent his very ripple effects and once that very ripple effect. It's felt students will fall victim to this very particular trend, and so I would sound a die warning in terms of the use of marijuana or recreational stuff on our campus. And once again, China has very bad memory of this, very opium thing. Right. And that's supposed to be so very detrimental actually almost ruined down civilization in that sense. But then in the US is quite different story. I mean, drug use has been so widespread on US campus, and right now, for example, Cording to survey LS, the most dangerous killing a drug is so very widespread out in the US or like cracks the or many of these designer drugs, and they're extremely dangerous to a society, especially. You to this particular group, the young people and sometimes as I'm told that the trend even extends down to primary school at basically middle school students are detrimental exposed to this kind of drug. And so it's time we think about this the anti spacious of the major in the state university of New York follows governor Kumo call to legalize drug. He sat a weeks ago is time to legalize marijuana went Santa for all during a speech previewing, his major policy initiatives for two thousand nine tank, and according to some experts in United States, they expected that by two thousand twenty two Allstate's United States well have implemented either a medical only or fully legal marijuana market and about eight days have already legalized recreational use of marijuana as professor Thome Milly are the west coast stays like Washington state, Oregon and California. Of course, we know Canada. Also starting October last year, the canopy ACTA has gone into fact and legalized recreational marijuana use in the country the legal kind of industries growing at 'em president hitt pace in North America. But what makes the movements all the cry of supporting the legalisation of recreation use of cannabis are so powerful in the region. Very powerful campaign. The started back in the nineteen sixties actually help to facilitate the growth of very movement and at the same time, we all know that the baby boomer generation war name between nineteen forty two to nineteen sixty four. And these people are now, we're actually very backbone, very, I would say the main stay of US and Canadian society richest that they are actually the most powerful and look at the presidency look at the US congress. I mean, political light being controlled by this very baby room. Generation. But also the rise this very middle class who are now actually have disposal income very open liberal to ideas on practices such as drug. Use of isn't. It is a huge demand. I would call it because capitalist country we call it's always divided by the market, many supply demand in consumption people want to use it, and then seeking profit plus the existing rampant illegal use of it. Because it's like a prostitution. There's argument over there. If you put these things underground they are existing, but why cannot we just legalize them? So that we can control them, right?

"Academic study or a breach of the moral bottom lines today. Lest art our show with the questions on professionalized a growing and selling marijuana in United States. So professor Thome. A what is the purpose of the program from the university's points of view. According to this news report is said to aid students in agricultural, right whose majors for example, is haughty cultural. And in this sense. I think that helps students to dive. Versa. Fi. They are disciplined or knowledge and creativity perhaps in this particular sense. But I wanted to reiterate at this point is that marijuana and also drug use drug study into United States in North America in general began not just in this very century dates back to the last century. The sixties actually reached its height in terms of drug use and drug study and research in this very area. One famous professor by the name of Timothy Leary based at Harvard University. In fact, started this whole thing, but then it has historical context at the time and mitch's quite different from what they're doing right now. How about your mailing? When is the about the purpose in terms of job creation and employment. I think they have vision. It's kind of university should be in the front to smell opportunities. Right because it's all about money. It has been there for a long time. And I think it's about the mass production. And mass use it's a worry because in the past either in China, I think in every country Amena why now or cannabis or this. They have been used in China. It's illegal but medicinal uses allowed to relieve the pain for the patients, so it has been there. And now we are facing it's going to be maybe completely legalized and going to lead to mass produce. That's why is a very strong demand for talents other to grow it or two processes. And so to me major concern is mass use and mass producing is it morally correct, or is it going to produce unwanted result? And a we saw movement and also the cry of supporting the legalization of recreational use not only medical use of marijuana. So are we seeing the approaching legalized cannabis act in United States professor ton? Absolutely think the legalization has. Been materialized in the west coast in for example, in California in state, Washington ZOA in that sense legalization is no problem. But then once again, I should to worries the mulling mentioned widespread use of drug could cause certain socio political and even economic issues, which that the United States should deal with. But then I think that as a university, I think they should catered to this very mounting needs. For example, with the white spread us or the white spread presence of marijuana in the US society. It does create opportunities and especially employment opportunities as well as created for protein ities. And so in this sense, universities has the responsibility to provide. But then once again as the news reported said that marijuana it's something should be seriously dote with I can see the trend. Definitely is there. And maybe. A complete legalisation in that country, particularly, but I don't think it's going to happen. Very soon for the rest of the world because his UN set of unified stance on it. It's considered lodge illegal. But the problem is that it's a worrisome trend because the United States is the influential country, right? If legalization there nobody can make sure that it's not going to spread and slack a ripple effect is going to affect other countries. Now, I think China and other countries who banned this kind of thing already warned its citizens to be careful. So there are a lot of issues coming you just cannot say, hey, I'm going to do this legalisation without really considering. What's happening? Yeah. The other countries talk back to the university's points of view. And do you believe all the students have the southeast point to Justice study and grow it and not try it? This is this is a very good question to raise..

Because it's a reflection of our American universities, and what are our American universities reflection of how screwed up our country is one hundred percent American University. That's that would be the college named American University. The university named American University is hosting a seminar next month to teach faculty how to assess writing without judging. It's quality just let that first sentence roller on your brain. We're talking college, and you may have a writing assignment as a student, but the instructor the professor the person with the corduroy jacket with dissuade lapels wearing Brown shoes. The Blue Sox has to figure out as to figure out how great it without well without judging. It's quality the writing in the seminars own worst grading ain't just grading. Do you sense where this is going to you know, why this is going to school? We'll we'll get to it. So by somebody number sow, you know, university of Washington Tacoma, professor now I can't pronounce that name. It's spelled A S A L first name and last name is, you know, I n o u e I would I would guess I had to guess he's I don't know. And the purpose is to pursue. Antiracist through reading assessments antiracist stance. In other words, and I'm going to jump right to the chase here. Or to the we'll go through some more. But he's trying to set up a scenario whereby because black people get into college and a huge percentage of can't speak English properly. Because they've learned ghetto speak, and because they've been it's been condoned throughout all of their elementary middle and high school, and because it's affirmed in the home Bill Cosby told us this before he was busted for dragging chicks at parties. And I got in trouble for Santa Cruz split. Correct. But a lot of black people cannot speak proper English when they get to college. They have to make excuses because if they didn't they wouldn't pass that it'd be your racist because he held that person back there black. No, we held that person because they never learned to speak English and many people going to college both black and white. They can't read anything other than about an eighth grade education.

"Eight, two, five, five lube Amir is calling from Detroit, Michigan Lubomir my pronouncing your name correctly. First of all, thanks for calling. Correct. Very well. Thank you. Go ahead. You're on the air. So actually I went to class with Maria the now accuse Russian spy with Maria, Tina. Go ahead and tell us about that. I went to a financial class with their and one thing that particular stood out. She had a intrigue to find out more about how Americans account for international wealth and trading. She expressed a lot of interest in terms of like Russian and American agreements in terms of trade and what tariffs would do. And so not necessarily did stand out, but it wasn't necessarily an interest of mine to think, oh, that she was a spy or something like that. So it came to to great prize for me to, you know, was accused of the spy afterwards after leading second semester. Thanks so much for that call Frank fig. Lucy, I haven't had a chance to ask you as someone who has with a background in this. Give me your take on the mo- Maria Boutin a case and her use apparent use alleged use of American University American University as a cover. The so there are some clear analogies to other sleeper agents and such that we've seen, including the the ten, Russian illegals that that you referred you. But there are some clear distinctions as well. I refer to Maria and that concept is ramped up or even a speed dating version of insertion into the United States. And by that, I mean, it stands in stark contrast to the ten year, slow methodical operation at the FBI wrapped up back in two thousand ten where the goal was simply to immerse yourself in US society with the hope of some day, getting access and influence up at take your time, have children by property, go to school in the case of Maria Bettina. What we're seeing is a much more of opportunistic situation with a direct specific targeting of the Washington DC community. The campaign, the focus on the NRA, the focus on aiding the geo. Appea- candidates a much more efficient and effective way of doing something fast. And quite frankly, is probably Vladimir Putin's response to what he viewed as a failure of the ten, Russian illegals getting getting really owned by the FBI for ten full years. He's he's probably cast that aside for now and gone with a much faster more targeted laser focus on what he needs done. So if the allegations are true in t really was a Russian agent, what would be sort of the long term goal of hers? Frank. I mean, can you kind of play that out for us? I mean, if refer mission was absolutely successful, what would she accomplish? What would she? What would she have accomplished?.
