Pardons Granted by President Donald Trump

"But as I pointed out it was a pardon frenzy yesterday that was all the talk all the rage across the national airwaves and of course local airwaves as to president trump and his decision to pardon and or commute sentences for a lot of prominent people in some not so proud and we want your thoughts as well to hear on the phone line seven oh two two five seven five three nine six as we discuss the president and his decision to pardon these die and grant clemency on Tuesday to eleven people who serve prison sentences for crimes in high profile cases ranging from gaming fraud and tax evasion to drug related charges now trump who has a broad clemency powers granted by the constitution we understand this right grand full pardons our full legal forgiveness for a crime to seven people commuted and shorten the sentences of four others now obviously presents seven party people for years and we acknowledge that we understand that and occasionally there's been situations where presidents across the board at pardon people that are controversial right that are you take a look at you said you now I don't necessarily think that was the right thing to do wasn't it I don't understand why you decided pardon this person over it over another and the eight calls into question credibility of the individual but with Donald Trump it it is interesting take a look at the individuals that he has decided to partner can either sense and of course when you talk about high profile maybe nobody more high profile than rob boy it bubble ball go eight H. and this obviously rob luggage was a prominent politician in Illinois for a for a number of years Abbas the governor of Illinois and there is this perception out there of politics in that state and it's not a good one okay it's a it's a it's a reputation that corruption runs wild that it's the wild wild west even though its Illinois in the Midwest and that are you that is you know more so maybe than any other state in the country it has a bad reputation so the fact that the president would decide on robin we'll go live H. to be one of the people pardon I I think is a prize is a lot of people now to give you the details basically rob all I get is it is a formula governor sort of forty eight was serving a fourteen year presents for federal charges that uses powers as governor to extract campaign money and other favors for potential contenders for the Illinois Senate seat that was left open by president Obama when when he be actually took office now troubles previously asserted that but boy that should Democrat who appeared as a guest on the president's program he's not slip your prince was treated very very unfairly there's a there's a running theme here with president trump is it's when when he discusses the reasoning behind these pardons it always is these people around you know these people have suffered these people are you know they're getting railroaded they've been wronged as people at by the way the convicted felons okay this isn't it a pity party for people that are you know serving hard time for crimes a day they had been convicted of committing all right so you've got blue eyes itch you also have obviously high profile a person in Bernard Kerik he's the former police commissioner in New York a lot of this remember him as a really one of the prominent people along with governor jewelery she's the mayor Giuliani in New York City during nine eleven he was the New York City police commissioner who was very lauded for his response the nine eleven attacks rightly so in my opinion apparently but unfortunately for him he was sent to four years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony charges of tax fraud and lying to White House officials while being interviewed to head the department of homeland security he served three years in federal prison before his release in two thousand thirteen there's also another I'm not a number of other prominent people that have been pardon we talk about Eduardo junior form on the same school forty Niners a lot of people in sports obviously no he is he was fined one million as part of the gambling fraud case in Louisiana like nineties you got Michael Milken a rope funny it's here talked about as the junk bond king pleaded guilty in nineteen ninety to several counts of securities in tax violations an announcement of his pardon the White House described him as one of America's greatest financiers and credit is work fighting prostate cancer I'm you also have our you'll free lawyer he's a founder and chief executive officer ET understands that there's kind of a pattern going on here free learner will you know was the CEO of an Arlington Virginia based software company pleaded guilty in two thousand fourteen serve two months in prison for conspiring to hack into your computer system the two competitors yeah Paul Paul pope who is a the owner of a Texas construction company plead guilty and sense of three years in prison in two thousand ten for filing a false federal tax return and there's there's David survey Safavian Viet Safavian's give me and a I enjoy stand also who has been part enlisting was an author Dr a reality TV star served time in prison for her part in a stolen car ring and I so I don't I guess you would characterize Angela Stanton necessarily as a white collar criminal but does she is now a trump supporter advocate for criminal justice reform and the goddaughter of Martin Luther king junior's politically conservative niece L. B. two K. and she spoke also at the two thousand eighteen women for trump conference and frankly post pro trump messages or Twitter account so there is a there's kind of running pattern here when it comes to these Florio pardons that the president has decided to engage and the funny thing would be white collar crime for the most part right and criminals who have been convicted of crimes obviously nonviolent crimes they are not talking about you know serial rapist here not talking about mass murderers by any stretch but there is a there's kind of a running theme here as JT shop judges your lives to and I don't think I'm online G. by pointing this out that well it is very very it's very intriguing to say the least right that the president of the United States is decided to pardon these types of individuals in any of these individuals spend time in el Chapo cell in NC si I would suspect not I think that does want one of those the the person you're talking about I'm to my glove not is getting a raw deal on that with that situation six does not at least I don't I don't expect they did have to deal with that with with that type of

'Curbside Pickup' Gains Steam In Grocery Shopping

'Curbside Pickup' Gains Steam In Grocery Shopping

"There is a war going going on in the grocery store. The grocery industry is huge sales in the US in two thousand seventeen or six hundred seventy four billion dollars but the margins margins are razor thin so retailers have to do whatever they can to get your business and one of the ways. They're trying to do that is by offering something called curbside side pick-up. That's when you order your groceries either online or by the phone and then you go to the store to pick them up and more and more stores are offering this service there there are about twenty three billion dollars of orders for groceries pleased online each year that is according to research and right now that twenty three billion is evenly thinly split between curbside pickup and delivery they are neck and neck but grocery stores would so much rather that their customers use curbside pickup for so many any reasons in big cities. Stores are desperately trying to stay ahead by offering you delivery but there's another battle front. The smaller cities the suburbs places with a lot of sprawl and parking lots and rural areas. That is where curbside pickup is increasingly. The weapon of choice. So that's where we are headed to the battlefront to the grocery store parking lot. Where in Arlington Virginia at a Harris Teeter is? This is where Jenny Ross tiled is about to pick up her groceries. She works fulltime as is a public librarian. She also was three kids. Two of whom are under the age of five. It's been a long day. They're hungry but we need to get the food so he can eat it. There's no there's already an employee out here. He has a clipboard and he asks Jenny for her name in her family. Uses curbside pickup about once a month. The first time I ever used this was because the kids were sick and he don't WanNa bring kids into a grocery store so the guy appears then he put the groceries and Jenny's trunk and that's it she just has to sign her receipt and leave. Jenny loves curbside pickup. It's just super convenient but retailers. LERS also love it for so many reasons. One of the most important is because delivering groceries is expensive even if it seems like it's not think about all. The costs costs that go into delivery. There's the cost of hiring a human being to walk down the aisles. Push a cart pick out the groceries that you order it online then take them outside outside and load them into a truck and then the driving there's gas and tolls and insurance add it all up and it's expensive so nope delivery doesn't always make economic sense in a lot of places but curbside pickup can have its problems to the economics for retailers. Haven't been totally elite figured out yet. A lot of stores charged just four or five dollars for pickup. But just like with delivery. They still have to pay a human employees to walk up and down the aisle and Philip Cart art so curbside. Pickup is cheaper than delivery but it is still an added cost

How Could Hypersonic Missiles Work?

"Today's episode is brought to you by the capital one venture card the capital one venture card you earn unlimited double miles every purchase every day and you can use those miles toward travel expenses like flights hotels rental cars and more just book and pay for your travel using your venture card and redeem your miles toward the cost capital one. What's in your wallet? Credit approval required capital one bank U._S._A.. An welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio Hebron stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here at a meeting in Arlington Virginia in late two thousand eighteen. One of the Pentagon's top officials told an audience of defense executives that the U._S. is locked in a tight race with Russia and China to develop a new game changing weapon the could fly at many times the speed of sound in could be used to launch devastating attack upon an emmy in a matter of minutes these which was told by Michael de Griffin the Department of Defense Undersecretary for Research at engineering that of all of the technological marvels at the Pentagon hoped to create developing a hypersonic missile Dole was his highest priority. It's hard to understand why hypersonic missiles technology that could be deployed as soon as the mid twenty twenty s sounds like the sort of exotic menace that villain would dream up in James Bond thriller. We could get them to work. Hypersonic missiles could have the ability to fly and maneuver it speeds between five and twenty five thousand kilometers per hour at a range of altitudes up to one hundred kilometers above earth surface for our non-metric friends. That's about three to fifteen thousand miles per hour at up to. Sixty two miles high at the edge of orbital space these capabilities could make a nightmare to defend against them because they would be moving so fast that it would be difficult to predict where they were about to strike until the last few minutes before impact end because the missiles travel. It's such a high speed their sheer kinetic energy alone would enable them to wreak destruction without carrying any conventional explosives or nuclear warheads. There are different potential methods of attaining fantastic speed what approaches to fire conventional missile that would in turn release smaller hypersonic glide vehicle which would fly up into the upper layers of the atmosphere another approach would utilize a rocket or advanced jet engines such as a scrammed jet military visionaries have in contemplating hypersonic weapons for decades but it wasn't until recently the concept begin to see him close to fruition not due to anyone specific breakthrough in technology but rather due to a combination of progresses and political motivation. We spoke by email with Eon de buoyed a professor of airspace engineering at the University of Michigan. He explained to develop a missile. You I have to show that the platform can fly emission of interest that was demonstrated in the U._S.. In Two thousand ten to twenty fourteen by scrammed jet powered demonstration Asian flights while the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or Darpa to flight tests of their H.. T. V. to boost glide vehicle ended in failure. Significant progress was demonstrated an important lessons learned in an overlapping time period the Pentagon and demonstrated longer range hypersonic vehicle capabilities and their conventional prompt strike program Darpa in the Air Force then partnered to mature many of the systems needed on a platform to make into a weapon as such as the guidance navigation and control materials. Dell's structures and rocket boosters but the U._S. wasn't alone. Interest in developing hypersonic capabilities Boyd said China was watching and learning and at some point started investing hyper sonics since two thousand fifteen it became evident that significant progress was being made that at least in numbers of flight tests conducted appeared to show China Outpacing U._S. efforts and in Russia where they've worked on hypersonic for decades like the U._S. also seem to have had recent successes but test flights in response to the Chinese and Russian progress the trump administration is pushing to develop hypersonic weapons as soon as possible and is requesting funding of two point six billion dollars for hypersonic research by the Air Force Navy Army and Darpa in its budget request for the twenty thousand financial all year the managing editor for National Security for the Center for Public Integrity. One are Jeffrey Smith reported in The New York Times magazine that spending on developing hypersonic weapons could rise to five billion dollars a year as the U._S. pushes to develop a deployable hypersonic or Sonic Missile System in the next two to three years though hypersonic missiles could carry nuclear warheads the missiles being developed by the U._S. will only be equipped with conventional explosives but they'll still be plenty fearsome as Smith wrote in The Times of quote the missiles function like nearly invisible power drills at smash holes in their targets to catastrophic affect. They'll impact their targets with a force equivalent to three to four tons of T._N._T.. According to Speth in some ways hypersonic. Like missiles presented different and perhaps even scarier threat to peace than present nuclear arsenals because they could enable a nation to launch a surprise attack and crippling enemies ability to retaliate leaving it helpless against the threat of nuclear attack. They'd be difficult to defend against I for a number of reasons their speed the fact that they fly in an area between aviation and spaceflight that we've never had to defend in and they're maneuverable meaning that have to be tracked throughout their flight with accuracy Boyd explained another issue quote put this class of missiles is not covered by any currently valid weapons treaty. This poses a number of concerns including the fact that the nation's primarily involved the U._S.. China and Russia do not have established protocols in place for the use of these systems finally only the potential for a hypersonic weapon to carry either a conventional warhead or a nuclear warhead means that a nation under threat wouldn't know whether a nuclear response should be considered that all means that in the near future hypersonic missiles could lead to a continuous atmosphere of hyper anxiety in which nations might be afraid to not strike first or to instantly launch a counter attack at the first hint of trouble or at the very least it could prompt nations to spend even more money on not just counter-attacks but defense measures.

But we'll drivers cash in on the stock to from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Uber is going public tomorrow listing its shares on the new York Stock Exchange some employees of the company stand to make millions even billions of dollars and Uber is giving drivers with more than twenty five hundred rides on the platform. Cash bonuses that they can use to buy stock at the initial public offering price the amounts ranged from one hundred bucks two maybe up to forty thousand dollars depending on how many rides at driver has. But how much of a benefit is that two drivers who are already unhappy with their pay Shaly Ramirez, drives for Uber. She's eligible for the stock. But says I don't think it's enough. I think they're China throw crumbs at us at the end of the day. What we need is something that is guaranteed on a weekly basis on a daily basis on a yearly basis. On Wednesday in New York City Ramirez and other drivers protested outside Uber's headquarters calling for higher wages from Uber, and lift and better treatment, they were similar protests all over the country Ramirez drivers simply need to make more money. That stock is not going to stop us from becoming homeless that stock is not going to have that help pay our rent and care for our children. So they need to come up with something a little bit better than that. One academic says the ideal scenario would be for companies to give drivers equity before the company goes public as if they were engineers or product managers designers. A Cinderella Zhang is an NYU professor who wrote a book on gig employment and how it's changing the economy. He says securities law hasn't really caught up with the gig economy. The challenge for the privately held company is that it's extremely complicated to have hundreds of even thousands of people who don't have sort of a strong relationship or an employment relationship or onto credited investors to own sort of small numbers of shares in a private company, but he says he thinks the law will involve to allow private companies to give equity to their part time workers that would be a nice outcome. It would be sort of reflective of the fact that the made important. Tribulations to lake you know, the evolution and success of the company. Now, of course, having stock in a company doesn't mean you'll actually make money when it goes public lift also led drivers by shares when it went public, but its stock price has fallen since its public debut. Some drivers like J crater who also writes about the rideshare industry are pragmatic. You know, I think if you have the right mindset, it's it's not a problem. I mean, this is the relationship we have I am an expense. And they're gonna try and do everything they can to pay me as little as possible when Burgos public this week. It says it will reserve five point four million shares about three percent of its offering for drivers to buy with their cash. Bonuses, anything they don't buy. We'll be returned to the public market. Related links lift reported its first earnings as a public company on Tuesday. And although it gave a generally encouraging report it also held back some information that it used to give investors like the number of total rides and bookings. It had in the previous quarter, which is obviously fairly useful indicator of whether the service is growing, and I mean lift also lost over a billion dollars last quarter, which is more than it lost an all twenty eighteen, but okay, investors were mostly worried about the lack of data lift shares closed at an all time low on Wednesday, but lift did in partnership with Waymo the self driving car company owned by alphabet, which investors do like because they don't wanna see the company get put out of business by someone else's army of self driving cars, although obviously long-term that's not great news for drivers either. Because if the cars drive themselves who needs a human. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace. Tech. This is a PM. Hi, I'm Zach and I listened to marketplace in Arlington Virginia.

Who Charges All Those Electric Scooters? Follow A Nocturnal 'Juicer'

"This message comes from NPR sponsor. Comcast business. Business has always been driven by innovators. That's why Comcast business is helping you with technology that provides better experiences. Comcast business beyond fast walked through an American city. And there's an increasing chance you'll need to maneuver around and electric scooter just parked there on the sidewalk while driving you pass people writing those scooters there for rent by the minute they run on batteries. And those batteries are at the center of this story because somebody has to charge them. NPR's Camilo domino ski met a man who has a side hustle as he sleeps jokers are just finished watching the sunset from his thirteenth floor office in Arlington Virginia his day job is over but his evening gig is just beginning. He pulls out his phone and opens his scooter apps people use these apps to ride scooters during the day. But it's night Kerzner is hunting for scooters that need to be charged Pokemon go and you make money he. Down to the parking garage and hops in his car, a burgundy Subaru Impreza. Yes, we have two scooters that are supposed to be right over there. The scooters are standing on a sidewalk just around the corner krizner can make four bucks on each. The amount varies based on how low the battery is or how long the scooters been left there. He hops out scans the scooters and puts them in the back of his compact hatchback. Now, you remember we list left, my office building and that took around thirty seconds. So it's eight dollars in the matter of one minute. So I think it's a pretty good deal. All right, next one Kerzner's just getting started. There's another one right across the street to easy tonight. Is the perfect krizner picks up electric scooters from two companies lime and bird scooters are hot. These companies are both valued at billions of dollars. And they rely on gig economy workers like him to charge their scooters, and it should be in five four three two one beep. Some people charge. Few scooters night, others charge dozens all right? So that's three. So we have. Twelve bucks back in the car. Kerzner puts on his Goto scooter charging song escrow fire next bird. This. Kerzner says that over the last six months, he's made more than nine thousand dollars at the side hustle from the scooter company's perspective Kerzner's, not just charging scooters. He's also retrieving them from out of the way locations like one that's practically under a Bush and hasn't been ridden in four days drop them off wherever the heck do you wanna take them? You know? Sort over there. The next morning. He'll put them in a better spot lime scooters are green. But the birds are black the beep and flash to help Kerzner find them in the dark the electric scooters stack up in his hatchback. He's got a system for squeezing them in his record is fourteen in one load some nights. He does several runs for one who crazy I can capture thirty birds tonight. There's a ton of birds right now. Let's go buddy a few months ago. There was fierce competition to pick up these scooters, but it's cold and windy tonight. And the companies are paying less per scooter than they used to. So there aren't as many rivals to contend with after collecting a dozen scooters and wrestling the last one into position. Kerzner heads home and starts to carry the scooters to his patio.

What's the big deal from American public media? This is marketplace tech. I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. This week trade talks continue between the US and China. US officials complain that China has long failed to protect US intellectual property rights, a charge China rejects in particular, the US wants China to put an end to what's known as forced technology transfers, that's when US companies have to share their valuable tech secrets with local partners in order to access. China's much coveted market finding a solution has been a big sticking point in trade negotiations and the history of countries sparring over IP issues, actually goes back centuries. Greg Clark is a professor of economics at the university of California Davis. He says in its infancy, even the US took advantage of some stolen tech v was the norm throughout history old ways since the industrial revolution and the British stole a bunch of their technology from the Italians and and turn the American stole most of their textile technology from the British Samuel sleigh. After a British apprentice in textile mill carefully memorized, the plans and set sail from Erica and became the father of the American textile industry and indeed the kind of father of the American industrial revolution. And so how do you think we should be thinking about this today? If those were sort of celebrated figures for the technology that they they brought back home a yeah. No, I think you you all in that perspective what the Chinese are. Now attempting to do is absolutely the pattern of history. And there's actually a lot of debate about whether such property rights hinder or advance technological progress. Yeah. I suppose if your whether or not you think someone's the hero of the struggle depends on whether you're on the receiving end of that technology or whether you're on the theft. Then yes, though, the one thing I should say is that the British act. Actually by eighteen forty two abolished all attempts to restrict the flow of technology out of Britain. They just sort of gave up. Yes. Because by then the Riveria significant equipment manufacturing firms that wanted to profit by the export of the machines that embodied the new technology, and the other reason that the British change their attitude was that the British actually had such an efficient manufacturing system that they actually didn't need to worry about other people getting the technology. But the thing is I think now that is not going to be the case that in manufacturing Chinese labor costs will allow them to undercut America.

Motorola Razr Phone: The Next Comeback?

"This is tech news briefing on Tony Bruce reporting from the newsroom in New York with a flashback to one flip phone rendered obsolete by the iphone, but a stylish social status of yesterday. I am referring, of course to the Motorola razor picture it now with a foldable screen and a fifteen hundred dollar price. The once popular thin flip phone will be reintroduced as device made by Lenovo 's Motorola, mobility, unit and marketed by Verizon can Motorola, revive the flip phone, and how soon can you get your hands on one? That's after these tech headlines. Scheffel at the top of snap is underway snap CFO. Tim stone is leaving after less than a year on the job. Mr. stone didn't announce plans, but will stay on as finance chief to assist with the search for his successor. This is according to the company's securities filings this week his departure comes as the Snapchat. Parents struggles to retain users Mr. stone joined snap in may after roughly twenty years at Amazon, New York and Arlington Virginia traded billions of dollars in incentives for a shiny new Amazon H Q two, but the arrival of the new corporate headquarters could mean some challenges for the two cities case in point the F D N Y is feeling the heat. The fire department is considering reopening a firehouse that was closed fifteen years ago anticipating the tech giant's new Long Island, city campus and fears that it could strain department resources and the journal says officials from Amazon are meeting with the department city planning and other city agencies, including the F D N Y to figure out how they can help. Take two interactive software will pay the NBA and its players union as much as one point one billion dollars over several years and not just for fun. This allows take two's two k studio to continue making its NBA two K video game franchise as well. As other NBA branded games including smartphone apps. The journal says it's a window into the steep costs. Video game makers can face particularly insecure in starpower for their sports games. The deal reflects the growing popularity not only of NBA two K, but the revenue swelling power of micro transactions. The small digital purchases gamers can make while playing coming up as behold onto our smartphones longer. The wireless industry is looking for some new niche products and give you the return of the razor details after this. The Motorola razor phone is making a comeback. The once popular flip phone is being revived it will resurrect as a smartphone with a foldable screen and a starting price of roughly fifteen hundred dollars. The phone maker Lenovo is partnering with Verizon in an exclusive deal and the plan is to start selling new razor devices in the US as soon as February. However, it is still being tested. So the timing is not yet final. Let's talk about it more joining us via Skype on the line in Vegas. She's traveling is Wall Street Journal reporter, Sara Kraus's. Hi, sarah. Welcome back. Thank you. Thanks for having me. I guess my first question is, you know, we know this is a niche market filler of sorts, but why the razor in particular? Do we have a sense is the foldable screen buzz? And that translates into a flip phone we once knew. Yeah. I think there's there's a lot of pieces to it. But I think the starting point is it's sort of the sign of the wireless industry trying to. Find something about a smartphone. That is differentiated and has bells and whistles that are compelling to customers that are increasingly happy to just hold onto the iphone or Android device that they have and have had for two or three years. So this is something that both the carriers on the device makers alike are trying to figure out is how do we either draw a new subscribers or draw in new phone buyers by offering something different? So you have that. But you also have the foldable screen trend. That's going on Samsung is working on one as well. And then just the nostalgia factor of the razor. It was something that was hugely popular in two thousand and four pink. Wow. Was I had a silver one. And that was before the iphone came and sort of changed the game and really launched us into the smartphone era. But but I would say that this is both the sort of nostalgia. And niece play. You mention the days of cell phone past Motorola has tried this before how did it go? And why does Motorola think it might work now in this new landscape? I think perhaps. Moment in time factor where they have approval for a patent for a foldable screen. Screens are sort of a new dimension and smartphones and capability it's a way to marry this sort of beloved vintage razor form with this new emerging technology of the foldable screen again. It is a differentiator at a time when a lot of smartphones on the market are the sort of candy bar size rectangles. So it's a way to try to blend older new. I would say they did try this once before in two thousand eleven launched a handset, call the droid razor. But Motorola's market share really over the last decade has declined pretty severely, right? And we talked about buzzwords, whether they're foldable screens or whatever whenever we went on at the moment. One of them happens to be five G, and she will know the five G hype is very real you see a lot of the big carriers trying to figure out how they're gonna make five G work for them. I can't. Imagine that that's not at play here as well. Absolutely. So the carriers are all trying to raise to roll out their next generation of faster five G networks and part of winning that race on the consumer side as having you know, some of the earliest devices to the market that are compatible with those faster networks, so the razor that I wrote about today as part of a road map for Verizon that also includes five G compatible Samsung phone as well as clip on for an existing Motorola phone that would enable five g service so carriers are trying to sort of make a product and service game plan that will sort of bring them into the five G era. Sarah cross, thank you so much. Thank you for the tech news briefing, im Tanya boost does reporting from the newsroom in New York. Thanks for listening.

The return of wolves to Yellowstone Park

The return of wolves to Yellowstone Park

"Problem since ancient times, they've been portrayed fables and legends and the bible as fearsome voracious predators. The story of the big bad wolf may be the most memorable. And frightening of all the fairy tales told by the brothers Grimm that grim reputation actually produced a very real result in America in the early twentieth. Century wolves were wiped off the landscape trapped poisoned and hunted until there was not a single one left in the American west when the National Park Service decided to bring wolves back to Yellowstone park in the nineteen nineties it followed a bitter debate between wildlife groups who wanted them restored. And ranchers who most definitely didn't two decades later, the wolves of Yellowstone still stirs strong emotions, but they've also had an impact that almost no one saw. Coming. In the dead of winter Yellowstone park is a beautiful, but forbidding place howling wind subzero temperatures, six feet of snow. Just finding enough food survive is a profound struggle for every animal waterfowl bison, elk foxes. They all have to work for every morsel. Yellowstone was the world's first national park. Founded in eighteen seventy two and remains one of the most visited millions of people come here every summer, but they used to pretty much leave it to the wildlife in the winter until the wolves came back behind the treatment. Now reports of a wolf citing can produce a traffic jam along the one fifty mile stretch of road. The park service keeps opening the winter. Visitors with spotting scopes gather in absolutely frigid weather for a momentary long distance view Bellevue came from Germany to see wolf, Doug. Smith runs the Yellowstone wolf research program for the park service. And no one predicted. This would happen actually we indeed the appeal of coming in to see the wolves. Yes. And it truly has been amazing and hundreds of thousands of people a year, we estimate come here. Justice sequels. Tourism pumps thirty five million dollars a year into the local economy much of it spent in the winter, which is prime wolf watching time we've seen flows all three days we've been out Glenn. My is a retired FBI agent from Arlington Virginia. Kathy lumbar is a retired cop from New Hampshire. They both paid an outfitter thousands of dollars to take them with watching. So what is it about wolves that bring you all the way out here from New Hampshire to sit out here and just hope for the chance to see them. They've been able to burn wolves back into Yellowstone and they've thrived. So that's just an awesome thing to see. It was January twelfth nineteen ninety five when the first gray wolves captured in Canada were carried into Yellowstone park. It drew both national attention and fierce opposition so much that armed guards were posted to protect those wolves. So the first walls released into Yellowstone park or released rightback here in this thicket. Yes, so total forty one over three years. How many are in the park. Now, we've got ninety six and ten packs, and it's been roughly a hundred wolves the last ten years very stable, those ten packs of about ten wolves each are without a doubt, the most closely observed and studied wolves on earth our goal is to keep touch with each pack. That's our goal. They do that by trying to attach radio collars to at least two wolves in each of the parks packs. So you fly. The airplane. Find wolves in the open that airplane radios, a waiting helicopter on the ground. The helicopter flies out with a gun in the back seat. That Gunnar is almost always Smith himself. And you fly up alongside that wolf, and you should tranquilizing dart into it. Five minutes. It goes down. We process the wolves. We take blood. We measure them we look at their health, and we attach a radio collar, and then we follow them for their life. Hopefully that life by the way typically lasts about five years. You'll Allstone wolves are fears and territorial the leading cause of death is a tax from other wolves. And their look is uncontrollable that look says I ain't going to conform to your rules. And I'll die before I do, and that's powerful. That is a location of a wolf data from the radio callers has helped Smith team to learn volumes about wolf behavior. Folder is by them. It also helps all those wolf watchers. Find them truck service employees. Rick McIntyre is out every day listening for signals that is from a black. Male Wolfram revenues seven and then spreading the word. Did you like to see a gray well of two okay? So it's a little bit right of center. Oh, yeah. Oh, look here comes a whole pack. Wow. To receive you can count the mall. It would be to graze six blocks four five six black ones and the white one that went by in the should be a second gray. How 'bout that? We had spotted the junction Butte pack, along a ridge line about two miles away. Like most packs, it's led by an alpha, male and alpha female, the only two wolves in pack who mate with each other greyhounds, a female is still leading to the right? And you see how the ones behind are playing. She's determined to lead them to the west. They're running along the top right along the real. Yeah. That's magnificent. We can see these wolves from the ground, and it's been a sensation. So we've learned a lot about packed dynamics and personalities and how social they are. What do you mean describe that for me? They won. Wannabe together, their pack animal. So the power of the wolf is the pack. Nowhere is that power more evident than when a wolf pack is on the hunt for elk its favorite prey they worked together because they have to your average wolf weighs one hundred pounds or so, but your average prey animal is much bigger, but below seven hundred fifty pounds a colleagues five hundred so house of roughly one hundred hundred twenty pound animal going to take that down. They do it. Doug Smith says both by coordinating their attack and by zeroing in on Volna, Rable, pray. They're going to take the week. So they're making their living off of calf elk old elk injured, elk without wolves. There was an overpopulation of Elkin Yellowstone as wolves have cut the size of those hurts. There's been an unexpected side effect plants that elk. Feed on have made a comeback which has in turn produced benefits for other species. All the little trees have come back since we'll recover this Goey filled with shrubs has all come back since we'll recovering and the wolves are a factor in all of that very simply put wolves Email elk eat this when the L kit reduced the eat less so beavers and songbirds can respond to the growth in that vegetation. And it's Doug Smith is quick to say that it's not as simple as he just made it sound, but that hasn't stopped some environmentalists from declaring wolves the saviors of Yellowstone's ecology. There's some people who will try to convince you that wolves could probably solve Mideast peace and world hunger. Randy Newberg is a Montana hunter who hosts the TV show and podcast four hunters. He remembers how emotional the debate over reintroduction. In was between wolf haters and wolf lovers wolves are wolves. They aren't the big bad wolf, and they don't have rainbow shooting out there asking like everyone would think they do. There's something romantic about a wolf, right? Bless you've seen it chewing on a live cow. Eric Costa's family has been raising cattle and sheep one this Montana rent for one hundred years. He says he was worried from the moment the first roles will brought back to Yellowstone, which is about one hundred miles to the south. You know, they weren't going to stay in the part. They're wild animal their go or they want to go. I'm sure you knew it was only a matter of time before they were going to get here. Oh, yes. There was no doubt. And there was a set of tracks. Very well cost a new that wolves would follow migrating elk out of Yellowstone and onto his ranch and that they attack his livestock if given the chance he started hiring range writers to watch over his cattle, and he bought guard dogs to help keep wolves away from his sheep live sheep, pay for things. Live cattle pay for things deadwood and stole his defensive measures have kept wolves away from his livestock, but neighboring ranchers have lost both cattle and sheep to wolves. The thing that's never monitored. When I talked to these people is the loss nights of sleep. The nervousness. We'll track on my place today, or I actually saw wolf wolves around you can't measure compensate for that are wolf attacks on livestock, a serious problem. No. It's rare that it happens. But if it's happening to you. It's a serious problem. It was that fear of wolf attacks that drove ranchers and settlers to eradicate them in the early twentieth century after the Endangered Species Act was passed in one thousand nine hundred seventy three wolves were among the first to be listed and a campaign began to restore them to Yellowstone park after that happened in the nineties wolves quickly spread out of Yellowstone and into neighboring states, so many that there are now nearly two thousand in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho after a long and bitter legal battle, those states finally won the authority to manage and sometimes kill wolves outside the national park has. This management of the wolves helped to lessen some of those passions to calm, some of those emotions I think so so to have wolves you have to kill the wolves and some situations. Yes. The first situation is cut and dried any wolves that attack livestock are immediately killed themselves. I think that's hoped a lot at least with the ranching community and people feel better if they're not powerless to deal with something and then wolves are hunted. There's hunting season on wolves all three states have. So having wolves be hunted has probably increased people's willingness to share the landscape with them two of them. Randy Newberg is living proof of that. He filmed a wolf hunt a few years ago for his TV show. It took him eleven days and one hundred miles of trudging and tracking through the snow. You went out looking. For a wolf and saw how smart they are. How cunning they are how athletic they are. If you wanna increase your respect for world's going chase them out on their landscape, hunters and ranchers and avid wolf watchers. Rarely see I'd y but they know agree on at least one thing. We've got a gray wolves are back in Yellowstone for good. People love this. You know, we live in an artificial world. It's stores and cars and roads and buildings wolves are real and people crave. It they love it. We almost have this thirst for something real now.

Candice Buchner is a reporter forty Washington Post. She covers the Washington Wizards. She's talking to us today from Arlington Virginia and Howard Beck is a senior NBA writer at Bleacher report. He is wandering I believe the mean streets of the upper weeks each side in New York City. So we have people and Lou Pellegrino's in midtown Manhattan. So we have people from all over the place. I'll do my best to organize this podcast. But I what up Ciric what up Kansas and what up back. Thank you very much for joining me today on the sports media podcast. What up there? All right, here, we go so Candice, I'm gonna start with you. This is to be the easiest way since we can't look at each other for awkward dialogue. I want. This is a question for all you guys. So back in pay attention kennison start with you. What do you what do you think readers expect from you in your current role? And why? I guess my specific audience expecting me to write by Ernie Grunfeld eighty times and like. One thing. One thing only not very happy right now the that really happy for the last couple of years. I guess I've been there. They're always expecting things. Go wrong. When things go wrong. It's the the knee jerk reaction is that, you know, buyer everybody. And so with the wizards with that I cover being you know, what they are. They are expecting me an. I guess this is a this is operatives because I feel like I've been I've been saying this into like Twitter replies. And that really, you know, really expressing it. But I am expected to do. I'm expecting something that I think they would expect columnist or fam- blogger or someone who is supposed to give their opinion and me being that the the beat reporter. I'm trying to let them know. I don't advocate for jobs now, I may get a little Boise sometimes and having an analytical approach to stories and try to and try to show a little bit more than you know, what's going on and put in the context, but for me to advocate for someone to lose their job. Or for me to take a stand saying this needs to happen. Scott Brooks needs to go Janis to be bitch as the beat reporter. I don't I don't I don't think a lot of people know what my role exactly is. And they're expecting something. So i'm. Giving them something that they don't want Richard. So maybe that failure. My part is a failure on American public part not to understand the role of the beat reporter. So can this. Let's before it gets back in Syria. Let's stay with this. So in your in your dimension. And in the Washington Post estimate, what does it beat reporter? What should it be reporter for the Washington Post covering the wizards doing? Yeah. I only speak for myself. I'm not even mine players. But, you know, call me oh school. But I believe that I am I'm giving access and I'm supposed to take the readers behind the locker room door and show them. What I see in report. What what what what is going on with the team and often with the team was what is going on besides the team is telling you, or at least telling us, I'm trying to put context and and trying to explain what's happening, but to just come out. And like, I keep saying the advocate. I'm not an advocate. I'm a journalist. So I want to use my press pass for for knowledge insight for for something that you cannot get anywhere else. You can watch. You can watch it on television. You can say, yeah. Yeah. This this wizard seeing they're terrible at in the first quarter. They can't play defense. But as a beat reporter I'm supposed to explain why. So that's what I believe. My job is to get that answer or seer hit we go to you. You just move from espionage into Yahoo sports. And so. You're an interesting person for this question given that you're based in Toronto. So these -ly you've probably seen in covered a lot of the raptors.

The meat company trying to train up a more diverse generation of startup founders from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Only about one percent of venture capital backed startup founders are black according to CBS sites. Data even fewer are black women or Latino. There's not a lot of age, diversity geographic, diversity and underrepresented founders. Don't always have access to the networks or the training programs that can help them get startup funding. Mandela Dickson is a former public schoolteacher startup founder and was a mentor for entrepreneurs at the firm Cape or capital about a year ago. She created founder, Jim, which is an online only training program for would be startup founders. I talked to her the afro tech conference last week in San Francisco. Just like if you want to be a lawyer, you go to law school, if you wanna be a doctor you go to medical school, right? But there is no school for people who wanna be venture capital backed startup founders in often times the schools that are formed are informal right by your networks and a lot of underrepresented founders. Don't have the people in their networks who've raised venture capital who've Ben venture capitalists. So we're. Literally, creating kind of from the ground up this first Ebba curriculum, specifically tailored to meet the needs in how a deep level of empathy for the lived experiences of underrepresented founders. So tell me about the Taylor like what is different about the message that you give to underrepresented founders. What are the first activities we do is actually called differences as strengths, and it really is actively for founders to reflect on what makes them unique how because you didn't grow up where these other people grew up because you went to different schools and were exposed to different things that your purview is different in the world. And that you're able to see problems other people don't even know exist, and that's a competitive advantage because most people out there, are you mostly will out there are not from fluid background. And so the problems that you're going to go out and solve will actually help the majority of people since it's online only talked to me about the network building. Because I know that's a big thing that people talk about when they come out of us of an accelerator in there with a class, and they really have. It's sort of like we were all eagle scouts together. Baen it's huge. How do you create that in a in an online experience straight question? So that's actually one of the biggest things I underestimated Meyer, original hypothesis for founder, Jim was that it was a curriculum was a language barrier that the reason people were not succeeding here from certain groups was because they didn't speak the language. Well, what I grave underestimated was that people were looking for a community these individuals again, they're only in their world. They may be the only black or Brown or let LGBTQ are older founder in their circle in. So how we structure network it's in we're very intentional. We do affinity groups on a weekly basis. We also do peer trainings. So it's not just the expert trainers who have the knowledge we actually elevate the founders within our community to train each other Mandela Dixon is founder and CEO of founder, Jim incubators and exceleron for underrepresented, founders are becoming more. Common. Although experts say it'll be hard to change the industry for good until the venture capitalist themselves. Become more diverse and now for some related links. I did find some hopeful news about the tech industry, relatively speaking. An off Ed in entrepreneur magazine from about a week ago notes, a big upsurge in the number of events focused on women and investment, partly because successful women entrepreneurs are funding the next generation of founders and also because we're just talking about it a lot still only two percent of BC funding went to women at all in two thousand seventeen far less to women of color. But it's a good read binded utter website. Marketplace tech dot org, and before we go a super quick story that you might have missed and all the Amazon hubbub earlier this week. Google is not to be outdone. It said it also plans to double its workforce in New York City over the next ten years, reminding us that the ranks of the underrepresented in the tech industry are also anyone who's not in about four major metropolitan areas. A recent report on venture capital activity from pitchbook and the national venture capital association. Included what it said was a shift in attention towards startups in non coastal regions of the country. The report noted quote this trend hasn't quite surfaced in the data yet, but positive sentiment and interest are emerging. We'll see I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM. Hi, I'm Zach and I listened to marketplace in Arlington Virginia.

Fifty six seventy seven for WTI, the tenure up seven thirty seconds yield there. Three point one five percent s&p up ten up four tenths of one percent. I'm Charlie Pellett. And that is a Bloomberg business flash. Thank you, Charlie. Earlier today. Amazon officially announced that it would select to east coast locations for its much watched H Q two announcement the sites are Long Island city queens in New York. And in the crystal city area of Arlington Virginia, it will be a boon for New York and Washington DC metro areas and could define the economics and job growth of those two places for years to come for more on the announcement. We turn now to Emily Chang. She's the host of Bloomberg technology on Bloomberg television. She's in our Bloomberg nine sixty studios radio studios in San Francisco and Emily. Why New York and northern Virginia? Well, as you know, it was a very long process. Lot of fanfare of questions. Lot of looking at data. Amazon said they looked at like one hundred different metrics across each city to determine you know, what city would be best for them alternately. They say it came down to talent. Where would it be easiest for them to recruit and New York City and northern Virginia already have a fairly deep bench of talent. You know, ultimately, they they decided that they couldn't find fifty thousand people in in one place. So they decided to split into two locations. They're also going to set up a sort of mini headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, will they'll be creating five thousand jobs in addition to the twenty five thousand they're creating a New York City and Virginia. But you know, from what it sounds like it really came down to the labor market, and where they could find a deep pool of workers. Well, what role did incentives play in this decision if any huge incentives? I mean. Amazon's looking to rack up about two billion dollars in tax incentives over the course of the plan. Now, if they don't deliver on the number of jobs that they said they would create in each city some of those incentives might diminish, but certainly Amazon is getting very generous tax breaks, you had cities across the country. Rolling out the red carpet pulling out all the stops to put together a package that would be most attractive to Amazon, and you know, the company's really smarting from sort of the discriminate the disintegration of its relationship with the city of Seattle where Amazon has been blamed for a lot of the bad in Seattle. The traffic the housing prices the congestion. And you know, as we all know, Amazon ultimately wasn't able to come to an agreement to expand at this size in Seattle, which is why they have gone elsewhere. And I think they want to stay under the radar a little bit in in these other cities. They don't want to become the sort of punching bag for local residents who who aren't too happy about them arriving. That said there are definitely people who aren't happy about this. There are people who are worried about the traffic in their cities. They're worried about housing prices. But of course, how that will all play out remains to be seen. So give us the time line in. This is all this going to be rolled out to built out to jobs created over what five years ten years what over two decades. So a fairly long time line. We're talking about a total five billion dollar investment across these cities. But you know, to get to fifty thousand new jobs Amazon is saying that's going to take twenty years. I did ask. Well, how many employees are going to be moving from h. Q one which divisions which executive teams, and they were fairly quiet about that. They said to consider these two new headquarters as equal headquarters with their own big divisions. Their own leadership teams, I spoke to senior vice president Jay Carney who runs communications. And and he said that Jeff Bezos will be at both headquarters a lot. And so we should consider them on sort of an equal level as the OG originally Amazon headquarters in Seattle. You know, I think the one surprise in all of this is that after some of this stuff leaked out about the northern Virginia. We kept hearing Austin was going to be in the running here. And then hey, guess what? At the end it turned out not to be Austin. Now, the gone to New York. What happened? Well, I think there's a lot of disappointed cities wasn't just Austin. There were there was talk about Toronto and talk about Chicago. And and and talk about in Boston Boston will talk about maybe they want to be in the middle of the country. Maybe they don't wanna be east. And so, you know, there's a lot of disappointed cities out there. You know, Amazon's response to that is is, hey, we knew collected all this data, which is publicly available. You know, now this will make it easier for other companies to move to these different cities. They are going to be creating jobs in some of the other cities, even though they didn't get that HQ to H Q three designation. But you know, again, there is a lot of push back on there's been some criticism that. Amazon in this process. Took advantage of cities and got all of this data that Amazon can now use their responses that's publicly available while does Amazon just deserve tax breaks that are so big, and, you know, their response to that is we'll look at all the jobs, we are creating and and and across the country. So you know, again, we'll have to see how this plays out. It's got two decades to two decades to do. So, but there are many happy governments in many happy legislators in New York City and Arlington Virginia today. Emily Chang, hosted Bloomberg television on Bloomberg hosted Bloomberg technology rather on Bloomberg television. Thanks for bringing us up to speed.

"W m AL. Becky in Arlington Virginia. Becky, good morning voting. Like yesterday. You said you went around six thirty in the morning. Win early excuse me because I always go before work. But if my husband's in the hospital right now, I'm going to him. Oh. Early in the morning. I think all of us they will go into work. But there's never ever I've been here since Marion berry was going to prison that was the monthly. I wish I I know. Joe was in the military, but we never say Republicans out there giving sample ballots. I never see them these at farmers markets. Giving information out they never knock on doors. Flank Republicans have given up on Virginia, especially northern Virginia. And it's disgusting. It's a shame. We're here. Yeah. When you talk to them about volunteering. They say, well, you know, that's great. Because we're Republicans. How interesting that's a good point. That's an excellent point. I know some people who say who were waiting in line who were worried about being late for work because they had to go. They couldn't wait in line, especially in some of these districts where there were problems with the voting machines, and they had three hours you're hearing stories about having to wait till I had a comeback after work in some areas. The polls are only open 'til seven right? Then you go back and wait in line again. And it she that's an excellent point. And I know it's a joke. It's an old joke that will Republicans don't have time because they have to have to work. But it's true. A lot of them don't have time because they have more than one job. Yeah. I mean, it's so funny. I was talking to somebody yesterday. You know, there's this push constantly like, well, we should make it a federal holiday election day. So that way everybody can go vote. Do you know what would happen if you made it a federal holiday service workers wouldn't be able to vote because federal holidays are when everybody has to be working service hours. That's like retail everything. I mean, they have higher. Ligations on federal holidays. I mean this. It's all it's auto. Let's go to Ray in Woodbridge Ray, what did you see out there and Woodbridge Virginia. Good morning. I. There's no Republican Representative Heini valid, and actually I think the Republican Senate at the high school that I voted in yesterday. After after work hours. Yes. Line waiting line. Sorry. Did you say you didn't see any Republican signs? Hello. Yeah. Okay. I think that's what I said. Sorry, right bad connection. But I, but I I see that he when he called in. He said that he didn't see Republicans with signs you'll see a lot of polling places. Of course, a lot of signs laid out. I did notice again. I mean, you see a lot of democratic signs. I did see like one or two Corey Stewart signs where I wasn't Alexandria yesterday. But just not that many Democrats on all of the electoral stuff, the actual the sign age, the the actual people who shop to the polls the people who hassle you as you walk in. Who would just ask you would you like a sample ballot? Democrat democrat democrat democrat democrat they've they're doing the footwork on this because they're they're taking really seriously dumb question. Is there how many people are walking into the polling station? Don't know who they're going to vote for. I think there are people who want sample ballots who actually look at those and say, okay, thank you. That'll help me make a for instance, I'll give you an example that sits on the typically conservative side of the aisle. How many people do you know, Mary who look? Who are the pro-life candidates in this race, and they would like to bring a pro-life sample ballot with them to the polling place because they want to vote based on that. None. I don't know anybody who would fit into that description who would prefer the pro-life candidates. Well, I know some that would prefer the pro-life candidates. But I think it depending on where you live. It is such a battleground that you just want the Republican to win or you just want the Democrats a win because it's such a contested race. So you're willing to give up on certain issues and just vote for that candidate bright. But but but the point is not every voter is an informed one. And there are going to be people show up as you know, all the time who are ignorant of what they are actually supposed to be doing when they walk into that polling place. They could use some encouragement from some of the people show up. But the Republicans aren't even try is the answer. We're hearing this morning. Let's yeah. That's a good point Thomson chantilly. Let's find out what happened over there. Tom. Good morning. Good morning. Vince, my experience was very similar to yours, and I did feel very outnumbered. And then the interesting thing for me on the screen, or when I was coming home from work there were like, not fireworks and everything else. At the front of the neighborhood realize what it was until I got home and started listening to the radio, and they realized that they've called for waxed. And so everybody in the neighborhood was like, no fireworks. So the Republicans didn't get out and vote and the percentage of people that voted and it's been taken over by the liberal commies. Did you notice it all Tom anybody? I don't know if you were in line. But did you notice anybody wearing like paraphernalia? That was like pro democrat or Republican at all. Not in really noticed.
