MLB To Try Experimental Rules This Year

"So here are some of the experimental rules that Major League baseball's tinker with this year. The minor league level. I think I'm about to say, like experimental drugs to help you deal with this situation. With the bank. So Major league Baseball is going to try. 15 2nd pitch clock. Let's start here. I mean, they've already been trying to tinker with this for a while. Pitch clock in the minors and trying to get this into the major leagues and the major League Players Association doesn't want it. But that's nothing new. I think it's a good idea. I don't see anything wrong with a pitch clock. Making sure pictures move quicker. Batters move quicker, and if you don't if you're not in the box or the pitches in off by 15 seconds, it's a ball or a strike, depending on the picture of the hitter. To me. I love the pitch clock. What do you think I do, too? It's just odd to me that here we are 2021. I feel like we've had the same pitch clock conversation for about five years. And I know the players association doesn't want it. But I don't even know why this is even being written about it. Still tinkering was they're changing the amount of seconds But we've been there. Done this with the pitch clock either. Make it happen, or don't Mortgage Ames govern to buying Elektronik Strike Zone So there was some light tinkering the last two seasons, I think, and now more expanded use of the Elektronik strikes only robot umpire now the way that this is Being implemented. It's not. There is a robot like Judy Jetson behind the plate or not. Judy Jetson, who's the robot from the Jetsons, the maid? Whatever the maid was. It's not like that's the robot behind the plate. It is an electronic strike zone and that a human empire behind the plate gets the read either Baller strike and calls it I guess they do have final say that the human Um, can override it but that he is getting fed the information from Elektronik Strike Zone again. I like this is well, considering how Much of a discrepancy There is with human Empire's I'm on board with this. What do you think? Well, two things number one. It's Rosie. The robot is bogus. Always out objections. I'd love the idea of robot umpires. My only question is when you start giving a guy like Angel Hernandez, let's say a chance to override Do empires. Egos get in the way, and they just don't care with robot is telling them And also is this going to be done quick enough where it's not going to slow down the game. All right away. You get something you're going strike Paul, and whatever Rosie the robot voice, and then they have to make that split decision whether to override it or not. I just I like the idea. But I think you're also giving umpires a chance to allow their egos to get in the way and make their own calls

An aerospace engineer at nasa ames research center who tests interesting payloads for qb sat flight opportunities. I work on spacecraft technology demonstrations for these small spacecraft. Failure is an option. It's where you learn from your mistakes and you improve on the next round. And so we're all about taking these risks with these calculated risks with these technologies. So it's all about innovating these technologies and bringing more capabilities to these small sets as humans. Were so interested to see what's out there. What can we do as technologies become increasingly miniaturized. Cubesats could carry instruments to explore other worlds or communicate more efficiently swarms of cubesats could work together to give us a big picture understanding of the places we train about exploring for innovation.

"ames" Discussed on Pantheon

"And so he He sat down with his an our staff and literally said we need to stop trying to make kit records. Let's just make good records and turn those into hits and the ass when they went out on this huge signing binge and brought in a lot of artists who sounded nothing like the top forty and the other thing mo- understood was that people were going to become much more involved with collecting albums rather than just forty five rpm singles and the artists that he signed were really part of that wave of artists who turn the album into the central sorta thrust of rock and roll music and culture sort of the central most popular product and within a couple three years. This company that signed neil young joni mitchell and a bunch of the freaky est freaks that were out there. Making rock and roll. Music became the most popular most successful label in the world. And they've led the industry either as the most popular mung the one or two or three most popular most successful labels for nearly thirty years. And that takes you through this. Entire sort of enormous growth period that the rock in the music industry had where having double digit growth year in and year out was commonplace and often it would be twenty percent thirty percent more growth from one year to the next and it went from being of a pretty decent industry to being an overwhelmingly popular and profitable industry. I mean a multi billion billion dollar a year thing and a lot of that was led by by mo austin and warner brothers record. Write off is kind of the central figure. His philosophy of respecting the artist leading the artist. Do what they do kind of went against the normal kind of mo of the record business. It's not about the bottom line that everything will fall into place. If you let the musicians make the music they wanna make and the prophets. The benefits of that sort of would accrue in ways. You know first of all they were not put out if an artist didn't hit immediately so in other words the money that you laid out this corridor or even this year didn't necessarily need to pay off within that short timeframe because what he understood was if you take an artist. Who's you know a fairly sophisticated interesting artists. And you gave them time to grow and mature and they would not only find audience but they would also find a voice and a connection with an audience. That wasn't just gonna last for that one record or even the next record or for five years it was going to go on for ten years twenty years thirty years and beyond and so low and behold signed the grateful dead and lost quite a bit of money on them for the first five years but then they began to turn a profit by nineteen seventy an even now fifty five years later after signing them. You know they're still raking in tons of money from the dead's catalogue you know and there were other sort of unexpected benefits like you take a band like fleetwood mac. Who for eight years was basically a kind of lukewarm blues rock band that were interesting and they were good. And you know the warners.

And today she is in Ames, Iowa, Iowa State, Despite all has begun its big 12 college football season. Elissa, thanks for being with us. Good morning. Kick off in a few hours, right? That's right. Yep, it's the opening game of the season. So the issue cyclones are set to play the Louisiana Raging Cajuns. The Spirit team and the marching band will be there. We caught them practicing laissez, all wearing masks. Of course, it won't be. Like other games. There's gonna be no fans in the stadium. Parking lots that are normally full of tailgaters before a game this morning. They're empty. Students told us they're planning on watching the game on TV, at bars, restaurants and in the dorms. Listen, there's been a surge of Corona virus cases in the state. What do we know about that? And the and the numbers, for example, even on the football team that will be playing today. Wait. So this does come at a time when Corona virus cases are among the highest in the nation here in Iowa, and they are testing the football team three times a week. At the end of August, they said. They had a 2.4% positivity rate. So of course, they have to keep that number low in order to play. But here on campus, they have reported they have a 20% positivity, right? And of course, they're not doing mass testing so that number could be much higher.

Nasa wants to grow ‘living’ astronaut homes on Moon and Mars out of mushrooms

"NASA is exploring technologies that could grow structures made from fungi to become our future homes in the stars. This is innovation. Now, bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future. A team at NASA's Ames Research Center is working to prove that planetary habitats can be fabricated from fungi. Fungi are familiar organisms from mushrooms to mold, but the part of a fungus you may not know are the unseen underground, my Celia, these tiny branching threads network to build complex larger structures with extreme precision. The NASA team envisions a future where a compact habitat built of. Dormant fungi could be taken on long journeys to places like Mars upon arrival explores would unfold the structure and add nutrient enriched water enabling the fungi to grow into a fully functional human habitat with funding from NASA innovative advanced concepts or nyack program. Early stage research is underway to prove that MICO architecture may not be as farfetched as it sounds, and in the distant future fungi could be a sustainable solution for housing on distant worlds or on Earth

Will Covid-19 have a lasting impact on the environment?

"The pandemic hit air travel in the US is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become unnecessary. Many of you are asking what impact this is having on the environment. So Lauren. Summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius. What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lauren yeah so as you might expect is having an effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen and this is all over not just the US. So scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If this activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions for this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it maybe sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or during World War Two. But here's the thing that is about. The level scientists save world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out shutting down. The economy is not the way to reach. Those long-term emission cuts right. It's these bigger emissions changes like switching to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. Beautiful spring filled with crystal clear. Low humidity days here in North Carolina because having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather but about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather. Here I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities gotten cleaner. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down forty fifty percent. Planes are not flying either so that's actually helped improve local air quality but it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and trucks are still on. The Roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the what are they trying to understand exactly. Yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. They don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic could cause environmental damage? The here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increased fast action Styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible negative effects on the environment from the Corona virus? That's a good point. All of these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seen masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. The pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic. Waste for example California. Just put a sixty day pause on. Its plastic bag ban. And that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure environmental groups.

How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Environment

"Since the pandemic hit air travel in the. Us is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become a necessary. Many of you are asking what impact all this is having on the environment. So Lauren summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lorne yes so as you might expect. It is having effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen. And this is all over not just a US right. I mean so. Scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions For this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or World War Two But here's the thing that is about the level scientists save. The world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out you know shutting down. The economy is not the way to kind of reach. Those long-term emission cuts right right. These bigger and missions changes like switch to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. This is the most beautiful spring filled with crystal clear low humidity days here in. North Carolina is having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather brought about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather here. I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities it's gotten cleaner you know. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down. Forty fifty percents. Planes are not flying either. So that's actually helped improve local air quality But it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and you know trucks are still on the roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. Right I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the well. What are they trying to understand? Exactly yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities you know. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that you know this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. Don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic environmental damage? Here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increase fiction styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible? Negative effects on the environment from Corona virus. That's a good point. All these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seeing masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. I think the pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic waste For Example California. Just put a sixty day pause on its plastic bag ban and that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure and are groups. You know they've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually temporary measures. Right and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste kind of comeback at some point if you have a question for NPR's Lawrence Somerset to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or on twitter use the HASHTAG NPR conversation and our next listener question comes from Laura Intel Keaton Alaska. What effect is this virus having on? Wildlife? I'm thinking of the fact that there's less people out and about and that means there's more room for wildlife I've seen some photos of a Lotta ducks resting in a parking lot while bores and sheep walking down the street. There's a lot of this on social media. Is it just that were home more? So we see the animals more or the animals actually coming out in places that they didn't ordinarily yeah. I mean that's hard to tell right. A lot of us are kind of just looking out the window. Maybe seeing things we didn't see before but some of it is a hoax. Right on social media you know. Maybe you saw those dolphins that were. They weren't actually there. Yeah I'm sorry about that but this they're actually real effects. Scientists are trying to study. You know I spoke to one wildlife rescue center in California. That said you know right now. It's seal and sea lion pumping season. You know every year some pups are concerned because of human interference like people or maybe dogs getting too close and so they're kind of that this year they merely a reprieve for them because some beaches are closed Another really good example is Wales. There's just less shipping traffic right now. And so. The oceans are less and wheels are very sensitive to sound. It's actually Something scientists after nine eleven because there was also a drop in shipping traffic and scientists could actually measure that stress hormones in right. Whales went down during that time period. Interesting we got a question about what's happening to environmental regulations during the pandemic Mike in Portland writes to the EPA suspended environmental rules so companies. Don't have to follow them any longer. Lauren Bizarre Policy Change while everyone was focused on the disease. Yeah in in March the EPA announced that it would not be finding companies if they failed to report their pollution data during the pandemic so an example of this might be that a refinery is reporting. It's air emissions to make sure that they're complying with Federal Clean Air Laws. The agency said that this needed to happen. Because the pandemic is making it harder for staff to collect the safety data and and do social distancing at the same time environmental groups really push back quite strongly. They felt this was too broad. It sent a message to industries. That maybe they would have the freedom to break environmental laws if no one was really checking during this time period just on our final moments so many of the changes were talking about depend on social distancing when the economy returns to something like normal are the gains. We've seen going to be reversed right so we all are starting to get back in our cars and fly. Go back to work industries ramping. Up You expect these of short-term Games are going to go away. I think there's some hope that the behavioral change though like maybe we'll all work from home it's possible. Npr Science correspondent Lawrence Summer. Thanks for answering these questions tonight. Thanks

"Now back to the story on October Twentieth Nineteen Eighty six the last of the Soviet double double agents that rick aims had betrayed in June. One thousand nine hundred five were being rounded up and killed and investigation into the CIA as more. Aw had been opened. The agency's top men were all too busy dealing with the Iran Contra affair to make any progress and Rick Ames. I was driving into the Soviet embassy to meet with Vlad his KGB handler flat explained to rick the reason for all the double agents arrests it wasn't the KGB's choice. They would have chosen to leave at least some of the traders in the field and use them as a tool tool to pass false information to the CIA but Rick's intelligence had been passed all the way to the top of the Soviet hierarchy to the general secretary of the Soviet Union himself. Mikhail Gorbachev furious about the betrayals Gorbachev ordered everyone on Rick's list to be killed immediately. Rick was shocked as usual. He was unbothered right by the deaths. He had caused what surprised him was that his name was known by the very highest echelons of Soviet leadership he was valued. Oh you buy them Vlad went on the KGB was sincerely sorry about the danger they'd put Rick in by acting rashly on his Intel. One of the ironies of counter intelligence is that acting on any information gathered puts the source of that information endanger. But Rick it didn't need to panic the KGB would stand by their man. Vlad promised they would start a series of operations designed to confound found in mislead the inevitable CIA investigation into its leak sealed with vodka. Vlad's promise of protection. It was a sincere one the KGB made good on its commitment to protect its most important asset beginning that December nineteen eighty six and continuing through the next five years the KGB ran an incredibly eh sophisticated interlocking series of at least five counterintelligence operations designed to protect rick aims in December nineteen eighteen eighty six they encouraged CIA suspicion that it was US Marine guards at the Moscow embassy who had betrayed counter intelligence. MM secrets the marines occasionally had illicit romantic relationships with Soviet women one of them the CIA suspected could have let a Soviet into the offices in the embassy. She could have planted a bug leading to the information the KGB craftily delete did everything they could to confirm these suspicions using informal contacts in foreign cities to pass false information to Washington and they even gave information directly to the CIA Soviet division it wasn't uncommon for the CIA and KGB to exchange information directly explains National Security expert and Pulitzer winner. Tim Winer although as this incident demonstrates it was always is crucial to take that direct communication with a heavy dose of suspicion in this case the CIA wasn't suspicious enough. The Task Force investigating the leaks spent months on the marine lead and they almost bought it the KGB also sent a missive directly to the CIA EH. Through one of their Berlin officers encouraging the idea that sloppy tradecraft and accidents had resulted in the capture of at least five five of the missing double agents within the KGB leadership disseminated. The idea that the arrests had all resulted from information soul to the Soviets by Howard. The sea is already discovered mole slowly. They hope that explanation might leak out to the CIA yet another tactic to confuse and mislead the KGB took the arrested double agents who were still alive and submitting to torture Orchard KGB headquarters and force them to call their CIA case officers were family members. They claimed that they weren't compromised. Remind and they hadn't been captured. They were in Moscow doing just fine finally the KGB ordered one of their officers was to turn dangle that is as we discussed last week to apparently volunteer his services to the CIA as a double agent all oh well remaining loyal to the KGB. The dangle told the CIA that there had been a security breach at their warrenton Virginia switchboard leading leading to the interception of top secret messages from CIA headquarters. All these deceptions kept the CIA task force on the leak. Busy composed of just one part time and two fulltime investigators. The Task Force was no match for the KGB's widely games and as the years went on and the task force members were loaded with other duties and investigations. The hunt for the most dramatic deadly leak in the history flailed going nowhere Bill Casey after his December nineteen eighty-six seizure for in the brain cancer diagnosis that followed was replaced as head of the CIA. By William Webster and while Casey had known the extent of the as as leaks in losses in nineteen eighty five and eighty six webster was never fully briefed on the issue other more recent issues took precedence and when he assumed the office he served as the head of the CIA from nineteen eighty seven to nineteen ninety one and all he ever knew was that a few years back a few operations had been compromised and a few agents lost he never knew that an entire generation of prize Soviet via double agents had been lost all at once. He never knew that. The overworked under staffed task force investigating the leak was going nowhere in fact he was only vaguely aware of the task. Force's existence the Soviet trickery protecting rick was more than aided by this mess of miscommunication within the CIA by October. Nineteen eighty eight. The task force had more or less collapsed. It had gotten nowhere aware and discovered nothing. Rick dozing away. His days at the overstaffed boozy Rome station was safe and thanks to the KGB. He felt cared for and appreciated to his life was good he was handing over the names of agents and the the details of operations at regular dinners with his cutout but now the KGB was handling the agency betrayed with its habitual subtle subtle manipulation unhindered by kill orders from USSR leadership. Much of the information. Rick handed them. They didn't use at all because it was too risky led directly back to rick but they still appreciate it and they paid for it. The masses of Soviet money were accumulating and Rick's bank accounts including two Swiss accounts one in his name and one in the name of his wife's mother. He fled Zurich on the weekends occasionally to cash deposits. Those trips didn't stand out to his colleagues at the CIA. He regularly flew all over Europe with his wife. Maria Rosario for little trips or weekend getaways making full extravagant and in public use of the funds. The Soviets showered on him. He had to explain the money somehow. Of course the salary was sixty thousand dollars. There's a year a good wage especially in the eighties but nothing near enough to support his luxurious lifestyle gallivanting around Europe in Italian alien suits to his colleagues. He implied his wife's family was extremely wealthy to his Swiss bankers. He claimed he was liquidating some of his wife's parents assets and to his wife. He explained that he was working for an old friend from college. College managing European investments. Keep it hush hush though. He cautioned her. This was a side Gig. That wasn't exactly forbidden bidden by his job with the CIA but not exactly Komi fo- either. He had to keep all his lies from converging. He wasn't is an exactly a meticulous spy but he knew if the wrong person caught onto the discrepancies between all his stories the tower of lies. This would come tumbling down. And he'd fall right along with them. After nearly three years of this plush lifestyle in Rome and the bumbling mess of the as I investigation into their leak rick prepared to head home to Washington. He parted from his cutout. The document that itemized his assignment once he was back in Washington the document explained how rick would communicate with the KGB in Washington. There'd be no cut out this time just dead drops in signals sites. Rick would drop off a packet of information at at a specified site. Then he'd alert his counterpart using an agreed upon signal in Rick's case it would be a chalk mark on mailbox a KGB officer would be on the lookout for that mark. Once he saw it he'd visit the dead drop site pickup a coup- his materials and leave money for Rick in its place. The system was often used by the KGB because it was easier to orchestrate then in-person meetings or live drops. Rick would supplement the dead drop system by flying to Europe or South America a few times a year to to rendezvous with his handler. The last note in the parting letter.

"In early nineteen eighty-six six the leaders of the CIA realized they had a problem. There was a leak with the agency was notoriously loath to consider a human mole. It was an old boys club full of Chum's from the Ivy League whose mothers lunch together at the Cosmopolitan Club. Poking around in their colleagues business was deeply distasteful. And why should they. The thaw one of their own would betray them was almost unthinkable so so they spent the winter of nineteen eighty six testing for a technical leak. Aberg wiretap or broken code. They found nothing so come spring. They put their in house investigator on the job. After several months he produced a circuitous inconclusive. report their previous mole. Edward Lee Howard may have betrayed some of the lost agents and maybe the investigators suggested the rest had had fallen prey to chance to small errors that multiply to produce disaster through a quiet summer with Nunu double agents arrested that seemed possible the leaders of the CIA barons as they were called cautiously allow themselves to hope it was true in this atmosphere of tense. Calm in July nineteen eighty-six Rick Games flew out to Rome his job there air was straightforward find recruit foreign agents willing to work for the CIA Soviets Eastern Europeans North Koreans. Anyone could could get that was his mission for the CIA. He had a second job on his hands just as he'd had in Washington one of the first the things he did when he arrived in Rome was to clear a recruitment effort with the Rome station. Chief Rick won approval to wine and dine one. Alexi crank of of the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs as far as the CIA knew rick would be sounding out CRENCA as a possible double agent in in reality CRENCA was his cutout. Rick would use him to pass information to the KGB. CRENCA would give rick a box of Cuban in cigars lined with two hundred one hundred dollar bills in return. That is twenty thousand dollars worth more than forty six thousand in dollars in two thousand nineteen the information rick was handing over in Rome wasn't as crucial or as deadly as the Soviet counter. Intelligence documents documents. He'd handed over while working at the CIA headquarters in Langley but what is new position lacked in quality. It made up for in quantity an enormous amount of documents regarding operations all over Western Europe in the Mediterranean passed through the CIA as Rome station and and Rick saw them all he had plenty to keep the KGB satisfied. So rex days dragged on into the fall of nineteen eighty six six. They were outwardly pleasant and comfortable but dogged by hellish anxiety. He continued passing information through his cutout but he knew he needed to speak to his handler. Vladimir met Julia Have Vlad was a senior member of the KGB counterintelligence directorate he could explain the KGB's choice to call every agent. Rick had named the span of a year and how exactly the KGB would protect tech rick from that reckless choice. Rick was right to be anxious as the summer came to a close the hiatus on the disappearances arrests and deaths among Soviet double agents came to an end fall marked a new round of losses the CIA finally gave up the hope that the problem could be explained by a series of careless errors or their last mole. Howard it was time to get a task force on the leak AAC the FBI to started looking into the matter after the confirmed death of their to Soviet embassy recruits Martinez and Maturin Iran? But they knew nothing about the extent of the CIA's losses. The CIA didn't brief them or call them in to help the main investigation. This was another example of the CIA and FBI as recurring resentful and self-defeating inability to work together. The two investigations continued separately both sniffing at the trail of Rick's betrayal even with their resources split though they were dangerous rick knew that they had to be onto him or at least onto the fact that there was another mole and the CIA the arrests and executions of Soviet double dilligence one after another. Were like a full page ad shouting mole in bold letters. Rick should have handed the names over one at a time time. He realized he'd never expected the Soviets to take out every agent identified in the span of year anxiously waiting for his KGB AGP handler to fly from Moscow to Rome and late. October Rick Drank himself into as much of a stupor as he could and waited in early. October nineteen eighty six just as the CIA and FBI. Leak investigations were getting started. Rick caught a very lucky break. News of the infamous Iran. Contra affair broke in the US. The CIA was immediately thrown into turmoil. armorial that would consume the agency for the rest of the decade. The Iran Contra affair was a convoluted secrets scheme run by. President Reagan's Reagan's administration began with illicit arms sales to Iran. which was the subject of an embargo at the time? The profits from those sales sales were quietly diverted to send more weapons to the Contra rebel army in Nicaragua which once again the Reagan administration had been legally legally barred from doing the CIA immediately went into emergency mode throwing all its energy into managing the fallout two months after the scandal broke. Bill Casey the head of the CIA had a seizure. Clair George the man in charge of investigating the CIA's mole all was indicted on nine counts and with the agency in turmoil the investigation into rick aim subterfuge fell fell by the wayside. Rick however didn't know this of course he heard all about the Iran Contra affair from Rome but he had no idea how it was affecting the investigation into his own subterfuge so he went into his meeting Vlad on October Twentieth Nineteen Eighty six chomping at the bit in fear and frustration and a few drinks deep of course as he always was for his meetings with the KGB see the black car picked him up at a bar. He wore a jacket and a baseball cap pulled. Low shoved his glasses in his pocket. The car drove him around Rome for forty minutes to ensure there was no tail. Then finally Rick Hunch down in the back seat and the car sped through the Soviet embassy gates coming up.

"You're short Abe that's turned into this by successful award winning film as well. Yeah, I wrote a novel called, you're never really hear the same. I have a wonderful publisher. I'll mention them. You're in England called Pushkin press and they published my thriller and they publish the extra man. Another book of mine wake-up, sir, which is a PG Woodhouse Omar which never could get published in England like an American doing no mouse to what else. I mean, I did have a character named Jeeves which is much, but it was a different Jeeves and legally and. And the Woodhouse is staying is quite. And then in America, though there was a Woodhouse society and it's not like being Salman Rushdie and getting a while, but I they were against me tremendously all eight members of the Woodhouse society in Connecticut. They wrote articles about me. They tended to reading of mine. Someone sent it to me. It's like, here's none of plums charm. But and then I met another member that would how society and she said, I loved your book. I said, I heard that the Woodhouse society was against me. She goes, well, they are, but none of them have actually read the book. Oh, God. Well, they anyway, what was question. You were never really here. So I wrote this thriller and in it's available out there. And then it became this wonderful movie done by Lynne, Ramsay Scottish and Joaquin Phoenix is the lead and it's a really strong unusual movie and quite proud of it. Is it going to come to the extra man was released in the UK you've seen at? Yeah, I don't think the extra man came here. You were never really here not to make you feel bad. It was. It's to small children. I've not seen anything Beckham Batty breathe. I understand. I don't absorb anything. I all I, I haven't sometimes hold my phone late at night and just like it could give me something. You know what I mean? I think with our phones, you know rectus so anyway, the film came out here. I think in April, maybe late March, and but I think it's it must be available streaming in some way. Probably watch to be full. But you know so much. Well, yeah. I, I, it's on both to death. Again, that writer is detective thing which you until the written this Nevada, you haven't really explored fully as that, but it is. It's again, it's this auto by a lot of the same autobiographical stories. But with this idea of in the nighttime, Jonathan Ames works as a detective on Craigslist year. Well, the board to death that began as the short story I wrote because I would write all these essays and people would say, oh, you made that up that didn't happen to, you know, I really did shit my pants in the south of France, but and then when I would write fiction, sort of like you, you'd be like, well, that's really you thought when I write fiction, they say it's true and I write nonfiction, they made it up. So I decided to write a short story in which Jonathan Ames and I wrote it in the style of my essays puts an ad on Craigslist and becomes a private detective and gets into trouble, and people really believed it. I wrote it for Esquire. They rejected it. And so I ended up again mentioning Dave Eggers sent it to him for his magazine, and he responded to me that really happen to you. And I thought this is great. It's worked perfectly. And so anyway, that short story then became the TV show bored to death in which Jason Schwartzman played Jonathan Ames. And what was interesting just at self-referential, but I am being interviewed. That for years, as I mentioned, I had been called perverted rider, John the names pervert than aims John. And then suddenly when people would write about me for the few years of bored to death, that'd be like the real Jonathan Ames. So it was gone from perverted to now I was real because there was the fake one running around on TV..
