"Anisa and her mother stand at the owl center's entrance. Both casually studying a nearby freezer full of ice lollies, while waiting for their tickets. Their eyes meet and they grin at each other. Her mother is rummaging about for caramel cornetto. When the sales attendant, Rachel, waves anisa over. Is that your mother, Alisa? Whispers, Rachel. Anissa goes very still for a moment as she nods and Rachel beams, I thought so. You have precisely the same smile. Anissa blushes and looks down suddenly shy. Her mother pays for their tickets and ice cream and together they move toward the exit

"Anisa, and misa, Izzy has taken her hands, is holding them, and when anissa focuses again, she feels as if they're submerged in water. And she wants to snatch them away because what if she hurts Izzy? But she is disoriented. And before she knows what she is doing, she is crying. While Izzy holds her hands and sinks down to The Rain wet floor with her. She feels gravel beneath her knees and grinds them further into it to punish herself for this. This thing, the power, and she is trying to make Izzy understand and she is trying to say she is sorry, but all that comes out is this violent wrecking weeping. It's me. She manages. I made her sick. It's my fault. I don't mean to do it, but I make bad things happen just by wanting them. Even a little. Wanting them the wrong way, and I don't want it anymore. I never wanted this, but it keeps happening and now she'll die. Is he looks at her? Squeezes her hands and says, calm and even. Bullshit. It's true. Avisa. If it's true, it should work both ways. Can you make good things happen? By wanting them? She looks into Izzy's warm, dark eyes, at a loss and can't frame a reply to such a ridiculous question. Think bad. What good things do you want to happen? I want she closes her eyes and bites her lip looking for pain to quash the power, but feels it differently. Feels with Izzy holding her hands? Is he facing her? Grounded? As if draining something out into the gravel and the earth beneath it and leaving something else in its wake. Something shining and slick as sunlight on wet streets. I want to do it to get better. I want her to have a good life to be whatever she wants to be and do whatever she wants to do. I want to learn Welsh. I want to Izzie's face shimmers through her tears. I want to be friends with you. I want she swallows them down. All of her good wants. How much she misses her father and how much she misses just talking in any language with her mother. And how she misses the light in Rhea. And the dry dusty air, the sheep, and the goats, and the warmth. Always of her grandmother and uncles and ants and cousins all around, and she makes an anthology of them. She gathers the

"When her father joined them in London, three years later, he found anissa grown several inches taller and several sentences shorter. Her mother's insistence on speaking Arabic together at all times, pushing her abilities as a heritage speaker to their limits, meant that anissa often chose not to speak at all. This was to her advantage in the schoolyard, where her eyes, her looks, and rumors of her dark powers held her fellow students in awe. It did her no good, with her father, who hugged her and held her until words and tears gushed out of her in gasps. The next few years were better. They moved to a different part of the city, and anisa was able to make friends in a new school. To open up, to speak. She sometimes told stories about how afraid of her people used to be. How she convinced them of her powers like it was a joke on them. And not something she had ever believed herself. Owls heard from themselves the matter they can not absorb. Bones, fur, claws, teeth, feathers. Is that for school? Anisa looks up from her notebook to her mother, and shakes her head. No, it's Welsh stuff. Oh. Her mother pauses. And anisa can see her mentally donning the gloves with which to handle her. Why? She shrugs. I like it. Then seeing her mother unsatisfied adds, I like the stories. I'd like to read them in the original language. Eventually. Her mother hesitates. You know, there's a rich tradition of Arabic storytelling. The power flexes inside her like a whip, snapping, takes her by surprise, and she bites the inside of her lip until it bleeds to stop it. Stop it. And I know I can't share much myself, but I'm sure your grandmother or your aunts would love to talk to you about it. Anisa grabs her books and runs to her room, as if she could outrun the power. Locks the door and buries her fingernails in the skin of her arms. Dragging long, painful scratches down them. Because the only way to let the power out is through pain, because if she doesn't hurt herself, she knows with absolute certainty that she will hurt someone else.

"Carefully, Izzy lowers her arm to a niece's gloved wrist. Hooks are tethered to the ring dangling from it and watches as bleed with hops casually down onto her forearm. Anisa exhales. And grins. Izzy grins back. I can't believe how much she's mellowed out. She's really surprisingly comfortable with you. Maybe anissa says mischievous. It's because I'm really good at not asking anything of her. Sure. Is he says? Or maybe it's because you keep talking about how much you hate moth, son of math on me. That prick. Is he laughs? And anissa loves to hear her to see how she tosses her head back when she does. She loves how thick and wiry is his hair is. And the different things she does with it. Today, it's half wrapped in a white and purple scarf fluffed out at the back. Like a bouquet. He's the worst. She continues. He takes flowers and tells them to be a woman. As soon as she acts in a way he doesn't like, he turns her into an owl. It's like he needs to keep being in charge of her story. And the way to do that is to change her shape. Well, to be fair, she did try to kill his adopted son. He forced her into marriage with him. And he was a jerk, too. You're well into this. You are. It's just. Anisa bites her lip, looking at Pluto with. Raising her slightly to shift the weight on her forearm, watching her spread her magnificent wings and settle. Sometimes, I feel like I'm just a collection of bits of things that someone brought together at random and called girl. And then anisa, and then she shrugs. Whatever. Izzy is quiet for a moment. Then she says thoughtfully, you know, there's another word for that. For what? What you just described? An aggregation of disparate things. Anthology. That's what the Mavic nacion is, after all. Anisa is unconvinced. Just one part of someone else's story. She's not an anthology herself. Is he smiles? Gently. In a way that always makes anisa feels she's thinking of someone or something else. But allowing anissa a Windows worth of view into her world. You can look at it that way. But there's another word for anthology. One we don't really use anymore. Floral leads him. Do you know what it means? Anisa shakes her head and blinks. Startled as the doet does a sidewise walk up her arm to lean gently against her shoulder. Is he smiles?

Anisa has started teaching herself Welsh. Mostly because she wants to know how all the names in the mad big nuc young are pronounced. She likes that there is a language that looks like English, but sounds like Arabic. She likes that there is no one teaching it to her or commenting on her accent, or asking her how to speak it for their amusement. She likes that the single F is pronounced V, and that W is a vowel.

"Was too wet to whoo. What makes her difficult? Asks anisa. Watching Pluto sway on her perch. Izzy looks fondly at the owl. Well, we acquired her as a potential display bird. But she just doesn't take well to training. She hisses at most of the handlers when they pass by, tries to bite. She's also very territorial, and won't tolerate the presence of male birds, so we can't use her for breathing. Is he offers blade weather strip of raw chicken, which she gulps down, serenely.

"This is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio. Her name is Anna Delphi, or anisa Sorkin, no one's sure she's either a mega rich German heiress, or she's flat broke, and maybe she's Russian. Vivian. That's the point. No one knows. But everyone knows her now. And a soric and was a con artist with an extravagant lifestyle who convinced New York's elite that she was a German heiress, conning acquaintances, banks and realtors. So the unadulterated foundation is a private club, but it's also a dynamic visual on sector. I wanted to be a place for people with taste. The drama series inventing Anna was an instant hit for Netflix. But now it's turned into a legal headache, one of Anna's former friends is suing Netflix for portraying her as a backstabbing freeloader. Big night out? I was, um, I couldn't sleep. Living your best life. I see you, Rachel Williams. My guest is intellectual property litigator Terrence Ross, a partner at cat and nuch and rosenman. Terry, this was not a documentary, Netflix called it a drama inspired by a true story. And at the start of every episode, there was this disclaimer. This story is completely true, except for the parts that are totally made up. Does that protect Netflix in any way here? Not necessarily, June. In fact, I can't imagine a worse disclaimer being used. I really wonder about who came up with this. This story is completely true, except for the parts that are totally made up, but we don't tell you which parts those are. I mean, it's this bizarre. Indeed, I think, to a certain extent, by saying at the start of the disclaimer, this story is completely true. You were sort of reinforcing the view that people have that this is just a recitation of the actual events as they occurred. So the complaint says that it's going to show that Netflix made a deliberate decision for dramatic purposes basically to tell a better story to show Williams doing or saying things that portray her as greedy, snobbish, disloyal, dishonest, cowardly manipulative, and opportunistic. So is this false light invasion of privacy? It might be. It's certainly not as clear cut as the plaintiff seems to present it in the complaint. The core of false light invasion of privacy, which has elements very similar to defamation. So you got to show a false statement that somehow places the plaintiff in a false light. You have to show by clear and convincing evidence, actual malice. And then you have to show that it was highly offensive. The portrayal was highly offensive to a reasonable person. Some of these factual claims, even if accepted as true, I'm not sure that in this day and age that a jury would find them highly offensive. Now, I will set aside the parts about the purported false billing on her credit card back to her employer. But these comments greedy snobbish, manipulative, disloyal. Even if true, they don't really shock the conscience, given what goes on in the world nowadays. And so I think that's a big problem for the plaintiff here as to whether a jury in this day and age would find this to be quote unquote highly offensive. And a lot of those traits, like disloyal dishonest, cowardly manipulative opportunistic. Williams did work with police to get Sorkin arrested and testified against her and some people might view her. In that way. So that goes

Who we had recently on the podcast and phil you. I think also known as angry asian man coined this phrase of the representations sweats where like. Oh god please let the speed good you know. And that's the pressure that i feel like is less and less prevalent. The more that we see new shows new steps forward. One other thing that i would love to like talk about because it's introduced in this new season season two is a nissan. The character of anisa in what she represents to davy. It's this new girl school. Where davy thought that she was the only indian girl at school and to be internalized. What that meant until the arrival of this new girl and isa who she then discovers to her horror is a cool girl young. You might just be objectively lame davey. You might. Just be objectively lame. I remember reading the scripts without plotline came up and i was thinking. Oh my god. This is awesome because like you said the representations wants that's like both and some of the audience side watching the product being like. Please please don't like badly misrepresents. I hope the writers gave them good lines but then the actual performer on the other side of that is thinking. Oh god i have to represent everyone like. Oh my gosh i have to like speak to everyone's experience which is literally impossible unless you wanna make like a amorphous blob of character with no personality. You know so here. We have a niece which is like the antithesis today. The whole other south asian girl with her own set of personality and likes and interests. So it's nice to see because also like the math. Don't check out if there's only one indian girl at school because there's way too many indian people on the planet like just does not make sense so that from that you know we got to south asian girls and then people.

Get your shot. They're giving away money and sporting tickets and beer. And in some cases, marijuana. I'm not making that up. Um, for people to get vaccinated. Well, I just went through a pretty intensive. Invasive surgery. And, you know, I'm I got meds I take every day and for the very region you just mentioned, um the heart inflammation. Um No, I've heard other doctors say the same thing. What? You know if I'm if I'm still on this side of the grass after everything I went through, Why would I take a chance on an experimental vaccine? Now, if you're in relatively good health and your immune systems where it should be, you know you do what you want to do. But no, I don't think I don't think vaccine passports are the way to go. Definitely agree, Rick and they should tell you Also about only half of all the employees of CDC, NIH. You're taking the shot. That should tell you everything you need to know. Wine. Very good call.

They promised us this until this long and, uh, not going back to work and people being lazy and that's fine. And and some of that's truth, Okay? I'm a gig worker. I'm adored Asher. When all of this stuff went down, everything closed. I was home for much. Okay with my daughter to my sons went out of work. They live at home it we're in a two bedroom house. Uh, My point. Is they the government given Y s B a loans, Small business loans, paycheck, protection of islands. Um, the unemployment with the stimulus or the benefit of the extra whatever. They were throwing it away, giving it away. Take the money. Take the money. And I was even told I make too much for food stamps, you know, sitting at home. Anyway, I do draw a widow Social security, but it's only $700 a month. But my point being is, uh, I started back to work when the restaurants started opening up and everybody had their personal protection year. Them Ash. There's hand sanitizer everything. You know, started back to work. I started back to work. I reported my income to these people. Now there was zero job searches on the twc. You weren't required to make any job searches, but I still went out and I went to work as much as I could every day. And, uh, are reported the income that I was making. Which was like under half of Have a good day. Anyway, my point being, uh, two weeks ago, Not even two weeks ago. Now I receive a letter from the T. W C that they have overpaid me to the amount of $3000 You know, when you're on food stamps, you have to report your income. When you're on the twc. You have to report your income Now they're coming to collect it back. What they gave out what they said. Take it. Take it. Sign up for it. Do it. Whatever you know. Now I'm in. I'm in the hole for three. Your hands. They're going to do this. Two more people know, Of course, you can do a lot more people. The idea and good calling this, uh, a misa, I think is how you pronounce it. That's a good call because it's it shows exactly what the government intended to do. The government government intended and intends today to make as many people dependent on government is absolutely possible. And you know, the only way that government can increase in size and scope is what By having more people dependent on it. The more people that depend on you than the larger you become. The more powerful you become. And in your particular case, um I would get there plenty attorneys out there that will talk to your pro bono won't cost you anything. Um, I would get a hold of one tomorrow. Absolutely tomorrow and say Look, this is my dilemma. And, you know, Anissa, you call me back and let me know how that search for an attorney goes for you. And if nothing else, I'll direct you to Have toward a guy that may be able to help you a little bit. So you can put her on hold and tell her to give us a call back. First of all, Inessa, find yourself an attorney that will work pro bono. Don't be embarrassed about that. Just call them up and saying Hey, You know, I need somebody that can help me pro bono. And here's my situation. Let me know how that works for you. And if you don't get anywhere, you call me back. I'll try to get going in the right direction. Because something I despise more than anything else is when government, um reaches out and and works at making us dependent on them, And that's a good example. What she's going through.

"But division among you just so you know just a moment here mike just a moment ago. You were saying that You'll what y'all should have done is who should have told them doesn't the israelites. Slavery's bad universally don't ever do it And even if that would have caused con division and made it harder for them to follow him caution. Monotheism cars huge division and problems with the israelites. So why not just stop slavery. Why not just other things on top of it. Why keep that in the loop but again truth divides if you when you go and you proclaim true and and and you and others don't agree and you don't just go. Well i guess it was a bad idea for me to proclaim truth because it's caused division and people are upset now You simply go ahead of the proclaiming it and so like people is bad with me that if if you believe something is true you should stick by it even if other people don't and y'all should have stuck with it right in the beginning that owning property is not a good idea and i am and again. I would argue that. If you look at the through history who some of the strongest abolitionist anti-slavery people were who finally got it. done someone. Like william wilberforce in england and in eighteen in the eighteen hundreds led the strong christian. Strong even jellicoe led the charge against slavery. He was motivated to do that. Because the bible was very clear to him that everyone is created in god's image in slavery Was not something that was acceptable. In christians led the charge against slavery after centuries of using the bible to promote there are. There are certainly many christians who misinterpreted the bible. Ms supporting slavery absolutely misinterpreted. absolutely i. Because i've read some of the stuff that the southern slave owners in the us wrote in the eighteen hundreds. Because i wanted the courses. I teach school. I teach american history as we look at some of these things lots fun and yeah so and so there's there's this They did not make good use of the bible. They cherry picked a few verses And and sort of took it as that. This is saying that slavery supposed to be here forever universally and they completely miss. for example. The book of fi leeman were paul sends. Anisa's back defy. Leamington tells him don't accept them back just as a slave but as your brother in christ. I can't wink wink nudge. No i don't ever in whatever make it blatant man you charge it to me. Oh by the way. I'm going to be coming and i wanna guestroom ready for me. Paul was telling him. I expect you to treat this guy exactly the same way you would treat me. That's not promoting slavery at all that one little spot that one little spot but there's so much that says read the whole letter. That paul road i mean but even even other letters. We're we're paul. Where see one of the neat things here. A lot of people miss this. Is that the word that is translated. Often servant or bond servant of the new testament is the word. Do los and it's actually just simply the word slave and so a lot of bible translations in often you'll see a little footnote and it's kind of neat to follow those We're we're at talks about slaves. That's the word delos. But when it's talking about servants of jesus. When paul talks about the way that he is a servant of christ jesus he's actually literally saying a slave of christ jesus and so when paul is saying when he's saying to to christians that that we are slaves of christ We the basically equating us..

"Woman named Ruth Belleville died in 1943, her longtime companion, Arnold was right next to her. Actually, he was sitting on her night stand. Which might seem a little bit strange until you realize Arnold was a clock well, was named after the maker who made it in the late 17 hundreds. John Arnold Anisa Ramirez is a material scientist who has written about Ruth Belleville and how the 24 7 world was invented. And so on. The face of the clock is his Arnold because of the maker, and so she just named it. Arnold and her family had been in this business of selling time using this clock for 100 years. Of course, time existed before Ruth, Belleville and Arnold. Since about 17 50 Ben Franklin had been celebrated for the phrase time is money. But Ramirez, who's the author of the book, The Alchemy of Us, argues that one of the strange things about time is that once we created fancy, almost perfect clocks and found materials like quartz to stick in them. Those clocks and those materials. Will they turned around and started to reinvent our lives? Ruth, Belleville and Arnold. They were a sign if anybody needed it. Time was about to conquer everything. She would wake up early in her home in Maidenhead, which is about 30 miles outside of London, Take the train to London and then take the trolley over to Greenwich and then walk up a very, very steep hill to the Royal Observatory. That's where GMT Greenwich mean time was, and they had precise clocks. So she would go there. Then she'd make her way down the hill and over to London to various customers that needed to know the precise time. See, this is before cell phones and radio and television where people could get the precise time for the from those gadgets. But they wanted to know the exact time and the exact time was located at the Royal Observatory so she would walk around different parts of London selling the time. Why would people pay her for the exact time Like who cared to the minute? You know where the second Well, it ends up that navigators really needed to know the precise time because they use the precise time in order to determine longitude. See if they compared the time that they knew that London had, and if they knew the time because of the position of the sun, they could figure out where they were on the map. But if they had a clock that was wrong Would know they wouldn't know exactly where they were on the map, and that could actually be deadly. They could end up in the wrong place. So so they certainly Navigator certainly needed to know the precise time Okay, factories needed to know the precise time so they knew when to start and stop the work day. Businesses needed to know it because they had to note when transactions happened. So they were a range of different people who needed to know the exact time Esso where they're multiple people. I assume she was not the only person in this business. You just went around saying like this is the exact time here's my watch. You set yours to match mine. Well, that's a good question. Well, her father started the business, and he was the only person in town selling the time and astronomers needed to know the time because they needed it for their observation. All work, okay. And then our mother sold time for a while, and there were other things that were populating that started to sell the time like the telegraph. But although that was a new gadget, it ends up that Arnold. The clock was actually more precise because it was a very well made watch. And then And then, when Ruth came along, there were even more businesses that sold the time even even radio And also you can call to call a telephone number and get the precise time so she had less customers than her father her father had about 200 customers, and she had about 40 or 50. But that was because, well, there were other ways to get the precise time. So in some ways, you know to like, modern years. It sounds crazy that somebody ever had this job. But can you just talk actually about the ways in which the need for precise time itself at that moment was a really modern thing that showed Like this increasing importance of time and that just time but really knowing what time exactly it Woz. Well, time, they say, is one of the most used words in the English language. And if you look at the dictionary of the Entomology of a whole range of words, you will see that they're in the 18 hundreds because we were obsessed with time before we used to say, Hey, meet me on Tuesday and you would just show up. I didn't say a precise time. And you would just wait Now, if I say meet me on Tuesday. If I say meet me on Tuesday now and I say to 30 and I'm late by 20 minutes, you're out of there. We already live in this time, this world of being obsessed with tar So time was a way to coordinate people's actions and to move things faster. You could you could have appointment you can. You can have your gun of trains running, so it was really key to. It was an underlying grid that we all had to snap onto. In order for the world that we know toe work, and in Ruth stay that was still starting to happen. So that's why her business was it was able to survive. You also talk about. I mean ways in which, knowing about time, um, in different ways than people had in previous centuries. It changed human behavior. It changed how we slept. It changed how we interacted with other people. It changed, you know, sort of how society was structured. Absolutely. I mean in ends up that before the industrial revolution, we used to sleep differently. We slept in two intervals. We would go to bed around nine or 10 o'clock, sleep for about 3.5 hours and then wake up on purpose and do things around the house. Like so read. Go visit our neighbors because they're up to and then And then after that hour of partying, we go back to sleep for another 3.5 hours. These two segments of sleeper called 1st and 2nd sleep and everyone slept that way. So what changed that? Two things artificial like that allowed us to go to bed later. And the second thing that changed it was the clock. We had to get up early to get to the factory, Both of those segments of sleeper truncated by the light and by the clock, and so it didn't make sense to go to sleep, Wake up in the middle of the night and then go back.

WhatsApp accuses international tech company of cyberattack
"Millions of people around the world rely on what's up to send encrypted messages and make phone calls back in May around fourteen hundred users received a mysterious video call it installed malware on their phones whether they answer the call or not what's up does it now knows who was behind this an Israeli cyber intelligence company called Nso what's that filed a complaint in US Federal Court against the company this week John railed in helped what's APP chase down people who were attacked. He's a senior researcher at Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto will there to discoveries here one is remained by citizen lab and the other discovery made by what's up talking about WHATSAPP for a second they had been looking into the possibility that weird things were going on the way that their APP connected calls and they found something and what they found was that a private spyware company had been deploying this technology for hacking telephones through whatsapp so that doesn't mean hacking what's at messages that means leveraging what's up to deliver a malicious payload what's out then enclosed of honorability and told the world about it then for the past several months citizen lab volunteered to work with what's APP to try to understand who was targeted can you name any of them the organizations or types of people or are you keeping mum on that what I can tell you is the victims included human rights defenders analysts investigating official corruption broadcast journalists working on international issues prominent women in multiple countries who are the victims of cyber violence in other words a WHO's who of the kind of people that authoritarian states a water bug if they get the ability to do so and were they being targeted in particular country ace or was it people all over the world it was people all over the world the cases that we're talking about today include targets in over twenty countries in for continents and what kind of country is their common theme to any of them I would say that the most common theme is actually among the victims which is these are people who have often pushed back against authoritarian or unaccountable official behavior and been rewarded by being targeted for it now what's that is accusing NSO group an Israeli based Cyber Intelligence Company of committing the attack who and what is NSO and who so group is firm that sells to governments they claim the ability to remotely Hack and monitor telephones they've been doing this for a while and for as long as they really have been active citizen lab and researchers at Amnesty International have been finding cases where they're powerful products get abused target members of civil society like human rights defenders and journalists the product that they sell that they're most well known for is something called Pegasus and assists is basically a technology for turning a telephone into your in your pocket into a spy in your pocket it can read your encrypted messages listen to your encrypted phone calls siphoned off your personal photographs and also do things like quietly activating the microphone where your phone is in your pocket now is it even legal for Anisa group to produce such technology will this is a great question and the world of companies like NSO that pedal this sort of spyware has this interesting and until yesterday quite unaccountable me which is on the one hand they claim the because they're selling to governments we should trust them at the same time when the products could abused they say well this was czar government customers during this don't look at us but they're quick to cite successes of course never with any detail naps lawsuit yesterday basically pierces that bubble and says first of all and so was directly involved in these cases and second of all you can't be on accountable if you sell this kind of power technology with this potential for for being used and abused how pervasive is this Pegasus Technology I mean how worried should we be I think we can assume that the actual use of this kind of technology although not spectacular is quite a bit larger than the companies would have us believe which would make us all extremely concerned John.
