US, UK aim sanctions at Russian oligarchs' finance networks
"The U.S. and Britain have announced new sanctions on two of Moscow's richest businessmen who are also close Putin allies. Al Asher's Madoff and Roman Abramovich were both early targets of western sanctions after the Ukraine invasion, which forced Abramovich to sell the Chelsea football club. U.S. officials say the new designations aimed to reinforce those penalties. The Treasury Department's also citing a Russian controlled bank in Hungary, which it says allows Moscow to boost its intelligence presence in Europe among other things. It's a rare step aimed at a NATO ally, Hungary's hard right leader is considered Putin's strongest advocate in the European Union, Sagar Meghani, Washington.

Sean Spicer on His New Children's Book "The Parrots Go Bananas!"
"We've got a lot to talk about here. You have a book out a brand new book. A kids book called the parrots go bananas, and I believe the parrots were talking about the chattering classes, the mainstream media, the blogosphere, they go bananas because they know Trump is going to have another term. Is that what the children's book is about? Look, that's definitely the none of it. It's about fake news is what it comes down to. The parents basically are part of the folks that go after these two really good individuals, Asher and Bongo, who are just playing a game. They accuse them of cheating. It's for kids four to 12. So we don't get into the heavy stuff here. I gotta be clear. Ladies and gentlemen, I was joking. I have joking. No, I know you know, but just in case anybody's gonna get confused. I'm always half joking. But the point is because I want to talk to you about the preposterous dare I say satanic corruption that goes that's going on right now with the rumors of arresting our president. It's so preposterous, but we're living in crazy times and I have to deal with it by joking. But your book for kids, the parents go bananas, really does deal with actual issues. So talk about that before we get into the news of the day. Yeah, look, I have two 12 year old kids. And I know what it's like for kids to pile on. Something I talked to him, they helped me write the book. I partnered with brave books. You can get it at brain books dot com and the idea is if you think about a Nick Sandman type situation. You remember that he was from Covington Catholic. These kids in the book, these two characters get accused of cheating. Everybody piles on, and they're sitting there saying, what do you mean? You guys know us. We're good individuals. We went to this game and we didn't do anything wrong. And they proved themselves innocent, but at the end of the day, they're trying to teach people about why did you jump to conclusions? Why didn't you take our word on it?

The Birth of Moses
"Exodus chapter one. These are the names of the sons of Israel, who came to Egypt with Jacob, each with his household. Rubin, Simeon, Levi, and Judah. Is a car, zebulon, and Benjamin, Dan and naftali, gad and Asher. All the offspring of Jacob were 70 persons, Joseph was already in Egypt. Then Joseph died, in all his brothers, and all that generation. But the descendants of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly, they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong so that the land was filled with them. Now there arose a new king over Egypt who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, behold the sons of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come let us deal shrewdly with them lest they multiply, and if war befall us, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land. Therefore, they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens, and they built for pharaoh store cities. But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied, and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the sons of Israel, so they made the sons of Israel serve with rigor and made their lives bitter with hard service in mortar and brick, and in all kinds of work in the field. In all their work, they made them serve with rigor. Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named shipra, and the other pua. New serve as midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the birth duel, if it is a son, you shall kill him. But if it is a daughter she shall live. But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. So the king of Egypt called the midwives and said to them, why have you done this and let the male children live? The midwives said to pharaoh, because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are vigorous in our delivered before the midwife comes to them. So God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied and grew very strong. And because the wind midwives feared God, he gave them families. Then pharaoh commanded all his people. Every son that is born to the hebrews, you shall cast into the Nile. But you shall let every daughter live. Now, a man from the house of Levi went and took to a wife a daughter of Levi. The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a goodly child, she hit him three months, and when she could hide him no longer, she took for him a basket, made of bulrushes, and daubed it with bitumen and pitch. And she put the child in it and placed it among the reeds at the river's bank. And his sister stood at a distance to know what would be done to him. Now, the daughter of pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, and her maidens walked beside the river, and she saw the basket among the reeds. And sent her maid to fetch it. When she opened it, she saw the child and behold the baby was crying. She took pity on him and said, this is one of the hebrews children. Then his sister, said to pharaoh's daughter, shall I go and call you a nurse from the Hebrew women who can the child for you? And Faro's daughter, said to her, go. So the girl went, and called the child's mother,

"He wanted us to take him off life support, so that's what we did. But he had a pretty vigorous aggressive type of ALS. So it was not good. And so anyway, I answer all kinds of questions about ALS. I'm a physical therapist. I was fortunate that I had enough medical background that I could learn how to take care of how and he was able to stay at home. Our son Jason moved in and he and I were full time caregivers for him. But even with that, I have to say, and I'll ask her can talk more about that. But the ALS association was able to give us loaner equipment when we didn't have that because Medicare, the insurance that we use here, everything takes so long that by the time you get anything and it's covered, you don't need it anymore, you need something else, plus most things aren't covered, nursing isn't covered except for a little bit, like not for someone who needs full-time care. It's maybe an hour, a couple of days a week. And that's what Medicare covers. So we were fortunate that we were able to stay home with him. When Bitcoin became a convertible to cash, we started using that to help cover the expenses, so we were very fortunate and lucky that we had those to draw on. It wasn't worth as much back then. He died in 2014. But it was invaluable to us. So I'll always be grateful that we had that. Whether we had to use it, we used it to keep hell alive. We used it to get improved his quality of life. And we also appreciated and used all the support we could get from everyone that was able to give us help. So I'm going to shut up on ALS, but people could please, please, I know all kinds of technical, if anyone wants to know anything about that on probably the expert there for a layperson. What an incredible story. So why don't we go with Asher Asher, you can talk a little bit about what you guys are doing, how people can help, and then, you know, if you guys are okay, maybe we can open up a little bit. I know a ton of people up here on the panel already have questions for you that they would love to ask you. And I'm sure there's questions from the audience. So Asher. Thank you. Thanks again for having me. First of all, I hope shout out to all my fellow Californians right now who are I hope you're all staying warm and dry in this inclement weather. And second of all, if you had told me even two years ago that I would be on a Twitter space about Bitcoin, I would have said you're crazy. Go fly a kite. But it's really been the great connector here. And it's been an amazing. Experience for

"Obviously, these cyberpunk saw that a way to communicate or a way to transfer value that wasn't realized yet by the broader global economy. But yeah, it's the truest and fairest way to distribute coins. And to exactly puppy's point, I mean, satoshi could have pre mined 50% of the Bitcoin if he wanted to or coded that in. Obviously he did not. So there was no unfair advantage that he had over anyone else aside from writing the white paper and kind of knowing how it worked, but publishing the white paper for everyone else to mine and compete freely without giving himself an unfair advantage. So just leave it off on that. Thanks guys. You know what's cool about that though is that the genius of the way the difficulty difficulty adjustment works. I mean, there are a lot of gamers that just leave their computer on all the time anyway. It's the same amount of electricity. They would have spent anyway. In many cases, it wouldn't have been much more than that. Because I think in the early days, there were just doing it on laptops or whatever. So that's pretty cool. How it ramps up over time to match the amount of computing power being applied to it. I think Peter was next. I just wanted to say I asked magoo and DMs if he thought, if in 2011, was it very likely likely or unlikely that a solar miner would receive a block reward and his answer was? Well, that depends on how much hash you had 2010 is when most small miners couldn't mine a solo solo. If my memory serves me late in 2010 is when the slush pool launched. So in 2011, it was unlikely. I was just going to correct the record and say that October 5th of 2009 was the first official dollar to Bitcoin conversion by new liberty standard. It was 1309 Bitcoin per dollar. It wasn't widely accepted worldwide though, but that was the first to my knowledge. Good morning, Natalie. Good morning, Alex and everybody. Thank you so much for having me up. I'm so excited to hear from Fran and Asher and just really, really grateful. Happy new year, everyone. I just wanted to kind of share on the whole idea of more equal opportunity. I always thought that our system was so unfair and leading to more and more wealth disparity. And that was one of the things that attracted me to learning about Bitcoin was trying to figure out why. Because, you know, being in this country that's supposed to be based on freedom and economic opportunity, why were things getting harder and harder for the average person and for the middle class. And so when I studied Bitcoin and realized that, oh, it's actually because our money is broken. I started to wonder if we would have a more egalitarian society based on hard money. And I've always been a big believer in equal opportunity, but not equal outcome, not everyone is going to be as motivated, not everyone's going to work as hard, but the rules should be fair. It should be rules and not rulers. And so I'm really inspired by the fact that as you look at Bitcoin's distribution and I think Willy whoo and maybe Jimmy song have shared these kind of charts and data, it does get more and more diffused because in a hard money and a finite money

"Nobody knows CJ from the athletic side of things. Yeah, exactly. Shout out to Tony Jefferson. But yeah, so we'll be running around, but for the most part, my heart right now is in Philadelphia and artist development and really making sure that artists who are coming into the world in this capacity right now on the Internet around 16, 17, 18 years old, getting a break, what it might be is just making sure they're kind of prepared and have some warning signs ahead of how you look out for this and check out for this. So that's very important to me. And TJ knows very well, how long and crazy a game it is. And the music industry. Starting in Atlanta and now back here at home. Reinvention the path to self discovery, Asher Roth always working on new cool stuff. Thanks so much, dude, and enjoy this rams repeat. My boys have fun, man. Go niners. Thanks, dude. Pressure Ross, joining the show. I love brockman just lighting up on the marquette shout out. Out of all the party schools. Shout out to you. That got you going. Did I hear him correctly? He said, Jayson Tatum struggled in the playoffs. If 26 7 6 and 13. Not enough brockman. It's not enough. And I want to struggle every day. It's not enough to get that superstar status, not yet, knocking on the door. This team all NBA. He's a superstar. All right, we got this list of the top ten highest paid athletes in North America. Some of the names might surprise you. And there's something you can take away from this list.

"So being born a 5, it was really nice because you know I grew up watching Barry Bonds and Matt Williams and those guys. And so easy to root for and kind of same thing with the forty-niners. You're kind of told Bill Walsh is the guy you're growing up. And then in 94, I'm 9 years old and Steve Young Jerry Rice Ricky waters Ken Norton junior, Gary plummer. Like these guys are just like, these teams were easy to root for. And then, and then you get tested, you know, when you're growing up and the teams go to the doldrums and it's pretty, it's pretty hard when they're in the seller, but that's kind of what makes the fan, right? No, are you definitely live the real fan life? And I know as a fan of sports and basketball, you must have loved seeing Steph Curry when the Finals MVP because that video of him doing your record makes the rounds. Like I saw that two weeks ago and thought of you. Yeah, you already know, man. I mean, it's nice too because, I mean, Steph was kind of counted out coming into the league. You know, two small, et cetera, et cetera. He's really, really kind of impacted the game on much larger scale than I think anybody anticipated. And I think you were starting to see that chatter after this championship where people were starting to say, let's give Steph is flower. So, you know, and again, as artists, that's kind of what you want to do. I mean, I'm sure athletes, there's only so much you can do, but as artists, we want to come in and kind of impact change the landscape a little bit. And Steph was able to do that in athletics. So it's hard not to admire it. Asher Roth, joining the show, Ben Lyons film in for rich all week long on the rich eisen show. Biggest forty-niners fan, I know, so I had to have him to set off the week and get into this football stuff. But talk to me about what it's like to go to a game as Asher Roth. Like, are you sitting in the nosebleeds like I did when I saw Joe Jared vicious, scored two touchdowns in the last game at the vet and ja rule got booed at halftime? Are you going with the fly guy pass and you're eating ceviche? You know, I honestly, I prefer the nosebleeds. I really do. Now, there's a little bit of both, obviously. I try to, you know, get the hook up when I can specifically for baseball games. It's kind of nice to sit close and see what these pictures are up to. Football games for me are still kind of made for TV, so I'm there more for the tailgate if you will. But yeah, go into the games. I mean, you throw a hat on in your chill and be up there in the what are now 400s. They used to be 700 level, but that's kind of my favorite place to watch to watch sports just because you see it all. And you can just get to hang out with the real ones. If you had a resume, a sports fan resume, what would be on there as the game maybe your most proud to have attended? The most the game that I'm most proud to have attended in my sports resume would honestly probably have been this Ohio State in Michigan came out there in Michigan was just probably the rowdiest being in the big house too is just like an experience. You know, those things aren't luxurious, you know? It's just like concrete seating and everyone packed into a place. And so I would probably say Ohio State Michigan rivalry game. This was maybe 2018. That was probably the most impactful sports event that I had been to personally. Just to see that energy and just to be a part of something. So iconic and big. Despite the results of that game, but yeah. Exactly. It's a little bit different. And so that stuff and college football specifically as well. We don't need to get too far into it with the NFL. But, you know, college football and what that culture is and what that represents to places when you go down to like old myths or Mississippi state or you see what the SEC means. I mean, again, what TJ had mentioned about being down in Atlanta, that was the first time I really got put on to Georgia football and that being a religion and what Saturday meant. And so being able to experience that on multiple occasions, even doing the final four tour back in the day was just like, let me get to some of these college basketball games and go around and be a part of that as well. So yeah, whenever I can align sports with what I'm doing on the road or just with my music in general, it's a win. It's so smart, dude, you know, you think of screenwriters who want to go make a movie in Bora Bora, so they go write couples or treat, right? So she was like, oh, I want to go to college sporting events with the hook off. Let me just write a college anthem that will be around for generations. When you go back and think of that time in your life. It's such a blur, obviously, but are there any shows or any schools that do stand out as having separated themselves from the rest? Because you must have done so many. Yeah, it's really tough and again, that time you're moving so fast. I will kind of at this moment give a shout out to marquette. You know, being out there in Milwaukee. Yeah, just as brockman looks so confused in studio right now, by the way. Just a good host. So what we are up to, you had to do, there's just so many Florida state as a lot of fun. Once you start getting down there in Florida, we've burned some couches and at Florida university as well. It's a little lawless down there in Florida. I'm sure everybody knows. There's a lot of stories that we won't get into right now, but yeah, it's been a lot of fun to just kind of use sports as a way to also see cities. Getting to Detroit and seeing how Detroit has their city lined up with comerica park and then you've got Ford field right there too. So it's a really great way to explore a city. I mean, even a big shout out to Chicago.

"All right, welcome back to the rich eisen show. Got a big show on hand today. I'm excited that adnan virk's gonna be calling a little bit. We'll talk a little Major League Baseball. We've got Red Sox Yankees from last night. Brockman and my dad fired up. Fenway Park. Rocking in July. And then Daniel Robert was out at WNBA all star festivities in Chicago, which looked like a real vibe Sue bird saying goodbye to the W and yeah, a really cool moment and we're back on the rich eisen show all week long. Ben lines filling in for rich, a really cool moment yesterday out in Chicago. Candace Parker, of course, and the Chicago sky defending champs in the dub, having a vibe out there, chance the rapper, and just I don't know, a great moment for the W honoring Sue bird, bringing a lot of attention to Brittany griner situation in Russia. So a really important moment for the WNBA this weekend, so Danielle, she covers for AT&T, she was out there hanging out to and all this stuff. So she's going to give us some stories coming up in a little bit. Did we have Asher Roth on the Mercedes Benz four lines? We do. We do, we got Mercedes Benz van's phone line, Asher Roth joining us right now. How are you? My man wanted to talk some forty-niners, but then I find out that your buddies with TJ Jefferson for like 20 years and he was in the isle of college video. So throw it all out the window, dude. This is how it goes. It's still baseball season for me as well, but you know, we can always talk matters. Yeah, but tell me about this TJ relationship. We'll talk Trey Lance and we'll talk Jimmy G and how I'm like the one Jimmy G fan on the planet. But how do you intend to know each other? I think it's just through the music and sports thing. You know that connection runs long and strong. And so whenever the artists want to be athletes and athletes want to be artists. And so long and strong relationship with athletics and sports. I love it. What's up ash Roth? You know, it started back in Atlanta with Scooter Braun. Scooter had signed Asher and I was working on the show called yo mama. Down there with Wilmer Valderrama and then we all kind of linked up and met ash Roth and I was like, you know, we just vibed. I would have loved to have been in the pitch meetings for yo mama. I got this show. Just your mama jokes. And they're like, sold. Is it a 5 second pitch man? Asher, talk to me about your forty-niners. How are you feeling, man? I feel good. I mean, this is a year, right? This is the excitement. This is what all the speculation has led up to, right? Well, as you know, as everyone knows around the NFL, all things have to run through Los Angeles. So being at the rams are the defending champions, what makes you think the niners have enough to get over the top, dude? I'll give you that. I mean, even last year just kind of running on a broken wheel, we were still able to run to the NFC championship. I actually got a chance to go to the niners rams game where the niners quenched and beat the rams in their home with it being kind of 70% 40 niner fans. And also just eyeing up the fact that I knew every Thomas was going to collect that game sealing interception. And so that's why I feel good about it is because we shored up the secondary. We already dominate Los Angeles as far as the fan, the fan base anyway. Most of the fans in Los Angeles are 49er fans. And so I feel pretty confident going into this that it all rides on Trey Lance and it's a big I don't know, but if it's up to me, I feel like that kid just looks like The Lion King. I love it. Asher Ross, joining the show. He's pushing his chest out though, even though he's celebrating December wins. You know, we play football and deep into January and February down here in LA. I get it. It's fine. But are you excited about this passing of the baton at the quarterback position? Because last year I came on this show and said they should ride out this Jimmy G thing. Everyone in this room, everyone listening and watching. Laughed at me, and then they went to that NFC championship game. So are you excited for what's happening at the quarterback quarterback position with the forty-niners? Yeah, I think you have to be. I mean, watching Jimmy play, there's a lot of there's a lot of good there, specifically in the system in the Shanahan system. Keep in mind, as we went, we've had a very complete team. Our successes have even last year's playoffs. We struggled against the packers and are struggling special teams ended up actually winning that game. And defense kind of keeping Aaron Rodgers and check. So, you know, that's why I feel pretty good about it is because I won't slander Jimmy G because coming from where we came from at the cornerback position and the stability that he brought for the most part. But just it's really exciting to know what Trey Lance is capable of and his potential and to see that this year to watch that happen. I mean, even last year singing in the second half of that Texans game. These are things that I think could end up making sure that no championships ever go through Los Angeles ever again. That's your Roth joining the show. I was about to say I love this dude for his love of Jimmy G and then he throws in a ram shot. It's all good. Congratulations on the new video. So on Instagram, teammates taking it back to little league. What kind of little league player were you? Oh man, I was a good one, a little center Fielder. I'm kind of like that vocal understanding that it's a team sport, you know, baseball is one of those things where failure you fail often. And so it's important to keep your chin up and keep your head up. And so that was one of those things. Center field are kind of in the morale booster, leading off for a little bit, but then as we got older, kids just got so good. And so I moved more towards that, what we like to call a second leadoff man, you know, down there in the 8th, 9 spots of keep some productivity at the bottom of the lineup. But yeah, man, it was good to go back home the mooresville and just be around and see that that little league field that we were really responsible for are a little league baseball team was pretty good. And it was around the time where there was sponsorship and radio funds coming in and the radio station traveled with us when we went to states and some of that money went back into the ballpark. So nice little scoreboard and just a good look in a little league field there and more so Pennsylvania. I love the record and I love the video and I love how sports have the power to transport us to our childhood and I feel like your music has always had sports references, sports, moments from your life as a fan that you then bring to your music. So just describe for the audience through your unique fandom because you like TJ are one of these guys who roots for like a strange collection of teams. That's right. Well, most of my teams are so it's forty-niners in San Francisco Giants because my father is a West Coast kid. So he basically was like, hey man, you know, Bill Walsh is the guy and Willie Mays is the best baseball player of all time. So the rest is on you.

"I am honored, humbled, excited, thrilled to be back in the big chair for another week this summer. You guys are welcome back. We didn't burn it down last time, huh? Look at that. You're still standing. I can't thank you enough and looking forward to this week all year long. I love showing up here. I'm gonna be here every day this week, 9 o'clock on the West Coast, pulling into the rich eisen show studios. And everybody's on brand. It's like walking into a time warp, you know? It's like everybody is just doing the cartoon version of themselves. First of all, I never knew that TJ had an iced out goat around his neck. Saw that glimmering in the Marina do this morning, the sun. One time this for the last two hours, he didn't even mention it. I was just so blinded by it. He's paparazzi me when I pull up in my rental car. Like, I'm already on camera. We're making content. So TJ, very on brand J fresh from the set of fast ten. Yeah? Ibiza with Vin Diesel went well this year. That was a pizza thing. TJ's lighting candles. CJ also, of course, when he found out that Asher Roth was going to be on the show, it was like, oh yeah, I'm in the I love college video. What? Wait, what? What are you talking about? Ash has been my friend for 25 years. I used to hand out his CDs. Very on brand performance from CJ Jefferson. And then we get to brockman who tells me about how he hates Karl Anthony towns would never pick him up and pick up. That's what he said that. And yeah, he's got the Red Sox hat on. He's all Sykes from the big comeback last night. We're only 14 back. Didn't talk to NBA Finals once, you know, we didn't talk any Boston Celtics. Well, what is their very own brand and want to get into that? We talked so much basketball. I got something to say about yourself. The title this year? Well, I'm not gonna say that, but I do have something to do. We know that in Philadelphia. And Adam in the back looking like broke Zuckerberg. So everybody is on brand. Everybody is on brand. And a lot has happened since I've been gone. You know, TJ and I have crushed a lot of rigatoni together over at Stella borrow. You're watching great NFL playoff games and some NBA action. Thanks for the invite. Well, you're always on dad duty every time I email you to do anything. I got hit with three assistants, you're like on a palm pilot, you're like figuring out your schedule, you gotta tweet them. I mean, you gotta beat them, bro I can fit you in. I'm just saying, give me a heads up. First of all, you're not gonna come from the valley the whole way to deep in Santa Monica to have pizza. You don't know that. It's not as famous as the carbon rigatoni, but it's very good for good Tony. We watched that bill's cheeks. Oh my God, that was one of the all timers, huh? That was a great game that bill's cheese playoff game. Which I'm pretty sure I said with like two minutes left. I'm like, there's gonna be like three more touchdowns. In there. Yeah, I think you ordered some calamari then as well. But a lot has happened guys. The LA rams are Super Bowl champions, brocklin and I went to the death star that is SoFi Stadium. We went to the game. I talked to you after the game, because during the game, I couldn't hear you. And we saw the goat, Tom Brady and his cheekbones throw a touchdown pass in person, so I checked that off the sports. Bucket list, but I feel like as a long suffering LA rams fan, I didn't get the respect I deserve as a Super Bowl champion coming back to these studios. Like no one is talking about how after years and years of putting up with traffic on the four O 5, I finally got a super ball. And nobody even mentions it around here. I can tell you why probably no one mentioned it is because nobody knew you were a ramps fan. Oh my God, you haven't heard about my spiritual journey, the quest? I have not. This is like enlightened teacher on that show where he goes up for aveto or whatever. This is the last summer when you were here it was all about your die hard Laker fandom because Carmelo Anthony was a tough season. So season for my purple and goal of this year. But Ben also did say that the niners should just stick with Jimmy G last year and they did that. We're going to get to that with Asher Ross, who's the biggest forty-niners fan I know, so I was like, you know what? First segment out of the gate, first interview. Let's bring in the biggest forty-niners fan. I know to remind everyone how on this show last year I said the 900 should stick with Jimmy G, they did, they went to the NFC championship game. I just want to put that out there. That's rough. 9 20 to talk about that. But I was a lifelong die hard Philadelphia Eagles fan. I grew up in New York City in the 80s and 90s. How did possibly be? Well, as you guys know, my sports zero happens to be my dad who is New York City's biggest Boston Red Sox fan.

What <Speech_Female> can I do to guarantee <Speech_Female> that my child is going <Speech_Female> to go to Oxford <Speech_Female> University? What can I <Speech_Female> do? And <Speech_Female> then she came into my bedroom <Speech_Female> and she said, <Speech_Female> oh my God, I've <Speech_Female> got it.

"And so there was so much confusion. And because the authorities thought that everyone had passed away instantly, everybody from the scene of the crash was taken to a morgue. And it was only when my father and my brother were taken to the morgue that the driver sort of opened the back of the truck and began unloading the bodies that he realized that my brother was still breathing. And so my mother arrives in this hospital in Nigeria and it was just such a difficult moment because on the one hand, yes, her son has been spared. Yes, her son is alive. But on the other hand, she's now having to plan a funeral for the love of her life. And this remarkable detail of your brother being discovered. When people were taking bodies out of the wagon at the morgue and discovered one of them breathing, that 11 year old kid was to a tell ejiofor, the actor who so many of our listeners, I'm sure have seen in the films. So she goes through this funeral, which was a huge thing in Nigeria, must have been emotionally and then she returned to London and leaves her 11 year old son, there still recuperating in a hospital, goes back where you were there, your 5, your older brother is about 14 or so, right? What is your mom like when she returns initially? So for the longest time, she locked herself in her bedroom. Really finding it difficult to leave finding human interaction quite difficult. She's obviously just emotionally broken as a person. So sometimes she would come out of her bedroom once a day, maybe twice a day. She would make sure we had something to eat. And then she would go back into her bedroom, lock the door and just cry and cry and cry and cry for hours at a time. And even when she eventually went back to work, it was sort of the same thing. She would be serving customers. She ran a pharmacy. And she would emerge, you know, into the sort of bathroom she had out back and just cry. And people would walk into this shop that was unmanned and there was a sort of no pharmacist to help them. Because my mother would be, you know, at the back crying, she just, I mean, my dad was really everything to her. He was really the only sort of man she'd ever held hands with, only man she'd ever kissed, you know, they met when she was 14. And so they had planned their entire lives together. They really were the loves of each other's life. So it was not just, yes, her partner and her husband, and the father of her children, but it was really her everything. And so broken is how I would describe it. Her emotionally at that point. Zane Asher is an anchor for CNN international..

"Noon. Her new memoir is where the children take us. Zane Asher welcome to fresh air. Thank you so much. I'm so glad to be here. Your story begins with a tragedy that befell your family when you were just 5 years old. You were living in London with your mom and dad and two older brothers. Give us just a little bit of the circumstances of your family life there in London at the time. My parents, as you mentioned, were immigrants from Nigeria at the time of the tragedy, they'd lived in London for about 18 years. And they were struggling, my dad was a trainee doctor on his way to becoming fully qualified. My mom ran a pharmacy in a neighborhood known as Brixton. Which in the 80s was quite a difficult neighborhood. It was certainly beset by poverty and crime at the time. And so, you know, the book starts with pretty much the worst day in my family's life, September 1988. And my mother is in the living room. She sort of going between the living room and the kitchen. She's waiting for a phone call and then she gets that phone call. And the voice on the other end of the line basically says your husband and your son have been involved in a car crash, one of them is dead, and we don't know which one. And you can imagine just the level of not just devastation and gut wrenching pain, but I don't think there's another way to describe it other than a sort of emotional earthquake, you know? Turned out my father had passed away in this car crash. My father and brother won a road trip in Nigeria because my dad just wanted to give my brother a better sense of who he was, our heritage and culture. And he lost his life that way. So your mom, the information she gets in this call is that your son and your husband have been in this terrible car crash. One has died, one has survived we don't know which. And she has to travel 4000 miles to find out. One can only imagine the terror and panic of such a journey. She figures out a way to have somebody care for the kids. She goes through this long journey, and finally enters hospital. What does she discover? That journey was such a painful and difficult one because, as you mentioned, my mother traveled to Nigeria, really without knowing who she was going to be burying in her family that week, whether it was going to be her husband or her son. My father and brother were traveling on the road from inigo, which is where we're from to Lagos, which is like the sort of biggest city in Nigeria. And on the road to Lagos, their car was hit by a speeding tractor trailer. And initially, everybody talking about bystanders and the authorities thought that everyone had died in the crash instantly. But then, you know, my family in the village, my Nigerian family and the villagers had heard that everybody was killed. And then they had heard after that, that no, no, no, maybe one had survived. We're not sure maybe there was somebody that survived we think the little boy had survived..

"And he always had that sort of love and that sort of vibrance about baseball. And he was just such a fan of the sport and so grateful to the sport and always had such a love for it. Did you feel that you had the relationship that you wanted before he died? I wouldn't say that we had a father son relationship. If we did, it was more maybe in the father in the sun. If we had a father son relationship at all, we got close. We were good friends. His older brother, my uncle Hank, we're close to this day. And my two brothers live in Philly from tug, a lot of different mothers, but we're close at my sister Carrie whose tug's daughter were close so everybody's close and we got close. You know, when he was dying, I spent a lot of time with him. He wanted to come to a cabin on our farm, and that's where he wanted to spend his last days, and so we got to hang out with him and spend a lot of time with him. I think the biggest if you can call it regret that I have is the time that we got to spend together as he was dying, a sort of weighted for him to say something about the whole situation. Some sort of just have a conversation about it. We never had that conversation. So I'll always sort of to a miss that part of it. So a timber graduate has been fun.

All ten episodes are available for streaming. Raising children presents dilemmas for parents. To name one, how tough should you be if your kids are wasting too much time on television instead of doing their schoolwork. Imagine taking scissors and cutting the power cord of the TV set and telling your daughter she can watch television again when she's earned admission to Oxford University. It's a true story, told in the new memoir by our next guest, CNN international anchor Zayn Asher. She was born in London to parents who were immigrants from Nigeria and much of her book is about her mother, who overcame poverty, famine, and Civil War in Nigeria, before raising four children in a struggling neighborhood in London. Asher's early childhood was interrupted by a devastating family tragedy which you'll soon hear about. Her mother then went to extraordinary lengths to give her children the skills, resilience, and determination to be successful in life, and they were. One became a doctor, another a businessman, an Asher's brother is Chiwetel Ejiofor, the actor nominated for an Oscar for his role in 12 years a slave.

"Yes, now. I do have fun. But I would say that my childhood didn't have, if I'm honest, that much quote unquote fun in the traditional sense, but you know, what my childhood did for me is it wasn't the easiest childhood, but it prepared me for real life. You know, and that I'm grateful for. I think that, you know, I could have had a very different childhood or a very different life now, had my mother not been Esther had my mother been a bit more relaxed. And I would take the childhood that I got every single time. You know, the name of the book is where the children take us, and I was reading it, and I was thinking, this is really where my mother took me, or where our mothers take us. But it does come from a moment in the book. Do you want to share that with us? Yes. So my mother obviously had a difficult time fitting in in England and feeling like she was actually welcome and belonged, especially as a foreign immigrant coming in in the 1970s. And so she felt quite lonely. I mean, especially also after my father passed away that loneliness grew louder. And so it would have been about 9 years ago. My brother was actually awarded an OBE by the Queen. And that's an award that the queen gives every year to honor those who have made a difference in a particular chosen field. And we went to Buckingham Palace and my mom was there when Prince Charles, she watched from the front row as Prince Charles pinned this golden medal and my brothers the pal and they sat and they spoke. They stood and they spoke rather for several moments and it was just like a really proud moment because my mother after not fitting in in British society for so long to be able to go to Buckingham Palace and watch as your son is awarded this medal by the royal family is quite an astounding moment. And she decided that she was going to wear something that was very Nigerian, you know, to show the world that I'm a proud strong Nigerian woman. She wore a Nigerian outfit to the ceremony. And afterwards, her and my brother were sort of linking arms and she was wiping away the tears that were streaming down her face and she turned back to the palace looking at the queen's residence and then turned to us and said, you never know where your children will take you. And that is where the title of the book comes from. Well, Zayn ashur, thank you so much for speaking with us. Thank you so much. Zane Asher is an anchor for CNN international.

"This is pretty Draco. Pretty draconian, yeah. So one day she was pacing her bedroom and she was just thinking to herself, what can I do? And she'd heard from my teachers that, you know, your child is smart. She does well, but listen, Oxford requires a whole different level in terms of grades and your child really just isn't there yet. But here are some other universities you can apply to instead. And coming from Nigeria, she hadn't really heard of the others. Even though they were very good, so she had her heart sort of set on Oxford for me. And so she paced her bedroom and she thought to herself, what can I do? What can I do to guarantee that my child is going to go to Oxford University? What can I do? And then she came into my bedroom and she said, oh my God, I've got it. I know exactly what to do to guarantee guarantee that you are going to go to Oxford University. And I said, what mom? And she decided to ban me from watching any television whatsoever until I had an actual Oxford acceptance letter in hand. So this would have been roughly around two years, just under two years or so. And it sounds so extreme when I tell this story, but I would say that I am so grateful that she did that because honestly it worked. Let me reintroduce you. We're going to take another break here.

We're speaking with CNN international anchor Zane Asher about her new memoir where the children take us. It's about her mother, an immigrant from Nigeria, who raised four children in a struggling neighborhood in London after her husband had died in a car accident. When we left off Azure was recalling her mother's determination that Zayn get into Oxford University and her imposing a rule when Zayn was 16 that she couldn't watch any television until she got an acceptance letter, which would mean nearly two years without TV. Telling you not to watch television is requiring a lot of willpower on your part. And so at a point she comes in literally cuts the power cord to the television in half, it is over. And then there's a matter of you spending time on the phone with your Friends. What did she do about that? Yeah, so, you know, if you stop your child and watching television, you know, they're gonna replace one destruction for another. And for me, luckily, during that point in time, there was no Netflix or YouTube or apps or Instagram. You know, I just started spending more and more time on the phone. And so one day she gets what is called, you don't have them in America, but they're sort of widely used in England in like doctor's offices, at least when I was growing up. They're residential payphones. And what they look like is a normal, tiny little phone, but it has a slot for coins on one side. And so she brought him a payphone. And if I wanted to talk to my friends or anyone, I would have to pay 20 pence a minute. And that meant that I didn't talk on the phone very much..

"And sometimes internal validation that comes from that too, because not just of internalized weight stigma, that's often a big piece of it, but also like you said, for people who are trans and non binary who don't really have the language or are not in a place to be out about that or accepting of that. It's like a way to kind of feel more feel less is for. And that's a tricky thing because of course you deserve to feel less dysphoric. Of course you deserve to feel more at home in your body. And there's different ways to do that that don't involve hurting yourself. Correct. Yeah. Oh my gosh, I love this conversation, I feel like we can talk for another hour and a half about all of this stuff. I want to be mindful of everyone's time. So thank you so much for sharing all that you did and can you tell us where people can find you and learn more about your work? Yeah, I will. Thank you too, and thanks for everything you do.

"How the personal responsibility narrative perpetuates stigma, how being queer and non binary has affected Asher's relationship with their body. And so much more. I can't wait to share a conversation with you in just a moment. But first I'll answer this week's listener question. It's from a listener with initials EKG who writes hi Christie. I was just listening to episode one 96 about diet culture's racist roots, and in the first part where you answer the listener question, I found myself following along and agreeing until you said the key is no restrictions. And then I felt myself deny that. I think a good amount of that defense for restrictions comes from an internalized diet culture, but in creating my defense in my head, I went to my Jewish dietary customs of cash root. There are restrictions like no mixing milk and meat, no pigs or other animals with split hooves that I know are antiquated and I've heard came about from an anthropology kind of perspective as rules designed for health and cleanliness 6000 years ago. But there's also a moral and spiritual aspect to keeping kosher and a connection to Jews around the world. I'm working on taking in all aspects, but right now that seems daunting. Is the goal to come back to my Jewish roots once I understand that diet culture might exist within traditional dietary laws too, or to reinvent a modern cash root. That seems like the best, but is still a structure and intuitive eating dismantle structures around food. Thank you. So thanks EKG for that great question. And before I answer just my standard disclaimer that these answers and this podcast in general are for informational and educational purposes only aren't a substitute for individual medical or mental health advice and don't constitute a dietician patient relationship. So this is a great question, and I definitely have a number of thoughts that I hope will help you navigate this. I just want to say right up top that I have nothing against the traditions of cash root or any religious practice when it comes to food and that these traditions can absolutely be compatible with intuitive eating and it is definitely tricky when you're first trying to recover from disordered eating and it's easy for diet culture thinking to get mixed in with religious traditions, which we'll talk more about in a minute. Also, I just want to acknowledge here that I'll be speaking about this from an outsider perspective because I don't have any personal experience with keeping kosher. I do actually have one Jewish grandparent and one parent who's identified as Jewish or half Jewish at different points in their life, but I've never been religious myself and even the Jewish family members that I know because I have a gigantic extended family and have never even met some of the people on that side, but the family members that I spent time with growing up who were Jewish didn't keep kosher themselves either. So pretty much everything I've learned about the cash root traditions has been for my Jewish clients and colleagues and friends who keep kosher or who grew up keeping kosher. So I just want to name that and say that I'm definitely not an expert on this. But I will share my thoughts on your question and pass along some of what I've learned about how intuitive eating can fit in with cash root and give you some food for thought and some resources for more information. So with that said, I'd love to start by getting into the nuances of what I actually said in that podcast episode and that answer and what you heard because I think the difference there actually holds some richness. So I listen back to the answer in episode one 96 and I didn't hear anything saying no restrictions. So it's possible that maybe you're thinking of a different Q&A episode, although I generally try to stay away from blanket statements like no restrictions because there is so much nuance to this. But if it is indeed episode one 96 that you're thinking of, I think it'll be helpful to sort of talk through these nuances here. So basically what I said in that episode is that it's important to allow yourself unconditional permission to eat as much as you want and need throughout the day. And that if you find yourself eating to the point of discomfort late at night or really any time, look for the hidden restriction that you might have been engaging in previously. Hidden restriction meaning trying not to eat or eating a smaller portion size, eating less than what you really want and generally just putting your body in a state of famine, putting your body in a place where it feels like it's in a famine. What I was talking about there was really restricting the amount that you eat and the times you allow yourself to eat, not necessarily what you eat, and definitely not cases when the what is governed by values that have nothing to do with diet culture or eating disorder rules, right? Because when certainly when the what, when what you're allowing yourself to eat is governed by diet culture, then that can make you feel like you're in a famine that can make you feel restricted. It can create psychological deprivation and feelings of restriction that drive you to binge maybe even in the absence of quote unquote physical hunger, although of course physical and mental hunger are so intimately connected and trying to distinguish between them. I think is a really fruitless practice in many ways. But you know, when you're in a place of diet culture thinking, disordered eating thoughts, being governed by eating disorder rules that are telling you what to eat, then that is definitely a driver of binging oftentimes on the flip side. You're mentally restricting and so then you end up binging as a response. That's not necessarily the case when the things governing what you eat are values that have nothing to do with diet culture's rules..

Thanks for tuning in to this bonus episode of rocket chip FM. It's part of our antitrust series we've done a lot of interviews here, but this one was especially interesting at the time. It was with Asher lazzaro, who was running for the mayor of Los Angeles. And it was interesting to see a forward looking campaign, or what the campaign of tomorrow could look like. Now, this is not an endorsement of Asher or his campaign. We don't necessarily agree with everything that's discussed here. But we're putting it out there so that you can listen and you can make your own decision about, is this a future that you would want? And is this how you want your mayor to sound? Because it's possible that we'll have more and more candidates taking up a platform like this one. So for your listening pleasure, here's my full interview with Asher lasagna. Welcome to rocket ship FM. Rocket ship FM is produced in partnership with product collective, where your hosts, Michael sakha, and Mike delsea. Yeah, Asher lazaro I'm running for mayor of Los Angeles 2022. Amazing. So tell me why you and why now? Why is this what Los Angeles needs? I think we finally reached a place in our political history where innovation is not just needed, but. Desired. And most people that I talk to now legitimately believe that we need an option outside of the two poles. And I'm here to be that option. Absolutely. Absolutely. So we focus on technology here on the show. And I'd be curious, what is your candidacy mean to the tech industry there in Los Angeles? Well, I think beyond being supportive, I think we as a government will embrace technology. As a means of doing justice, I think we've reached a place politically where our inability to implement technology based solutions is causing harm. And harm can manifest many ways. And one of the ways is waste, the amount of resources time and energy we spend on paperwork and bureaucracy that can be easily made into technology is a shame because those resources could be allocated towards real impact, direct impact. And so we can't just look at this as a technology or it has to be a technology plus government. Technology is going to take on all the bureaucratic roles that government used to serve. And allow people who formally were bureaucrats to reorient themselves towards direct impact and service. So amazing. I wanted to talk a little bit about the cryptocurrency development. It's very pertinent to a lot of the topics that we're talking about today. What would this look like this Angeles coin? So we're actually doing a coin for our campaign that will mirror what we intend to do in government. And so we're right now building a cryptocurrency called the common ground coin. It's being developed by a team that's very capable of producing something impactful. And we'll release that over the next few weeks. And that coin will effectively serve as a campaign finance and service tool, meaning we will give coin to people for serving food to the home homeless picking up trash, joining our community walks, volunteering in the campaign, assisting the community and whatever ways they might want to assist the community. And in ultimately raising awareness for our campaign. So people who want to join the podcast will give them crypto. People who do anything for the campaign or for the community will be able to earn crypto. And we will also bring in people who are willing to accept the crypto. For services that they're able to contribute. So for example, people who we just talked to somebody on Sunday, it's a therapist. And she said, hey, look, I'll accept your crypto for therapy. I mean, if that's a way that I can contribute to the community and the campaign, I'll do it. So if somebody spends three days picking up trash and they earn enough crypto, I'll take that crypto and serve them. And so we're going to create an ecosystem here in the campaign itself, where we incentivize service and build value around.
The Daily Meditation Podcast
How To Manage Stress, And Adapt To Change
"This is episode two thousand two hundred and twenty. Six of the daily meditation podcast. I'm mary medically and welcome back to dave five. We are mid week in our series. And i wonder how you're doing with your quest this week if you're new here every week we do a challenge where you go on a quest to take you a little more deeply into today's theme well on day five of our theme to manage stress triggers. You're going to be guided in a meditation to focus on one of the biggest stress triggers out there and that is how to manage stress from job loss or loss of any status. Having to do with how you view your self image so this could even do with a volunteer position or a few go to school not participating in a sport or activity or something where you gain a lot of value and a source of your identity so your challenge is to look for the opportunities in regard to stress. There's usually a hidden silver lining that. I'd you may not notice right away because you could be so absorbed in managing your stress but in hindsight when the dust settles you can usually find opportunities. That weren't there before even if you had to learn a hard lesson you've gained so much value. And that makes you a little wiser and it also usually requires you to reach out for additional resources that you may not have had previous to the particular stress you're experiencing today with the corona virus. Many people have changed the way they work. Or if you're a student out there the way you go to school you might not be able to go to the meetings where people looked up to you or take part in sport where you stood out and you gain so much value from being on a team. Many of you have reached out to let me know you feel like you're going through a bit of an identity crisis. I want to share a message from my fellow meditators. This is from kim who's reaching out from baton rouge louisiana and kim says that she is stuck at home. She says that even though many people tell her how lucky she is that she's able to finally work from home. She feels like it's a big loss in her life. She says when. I wake up in the morning. I don't feel that same urge to get up and start my day. I feel a sense of drag feeling stuck at my makeshift desk in my home. I miss seeing my colleagues. I even miss things such as the rickety chair at work and the coffee maker. that never worked correctly. I miss connecting with people. I realize how much of a sense of identity. I gained from simply being in a different location. I felt like when i would go to work. That i was up to something important that i had a mission that i mattered. And now i feel like i live in the shadows. Thank you so much. Kim for your honesty for sharing your heart in this message. I think we all feel a little like we're living in the shadows because we're trying to be so careful with the coronavirus. I take a walk at least once a day. Where i live and i was just noticing the other day how it now seems normal to see someone approaching and to distance myself as far as i can from the person so this is definitely a different way of life that we're living and even if we're out there among people were still most of us being careful trying to distance ourselves as best as we can. So that's what this episode is all about and asher guided in today's meditation. I'm going to guide you to feel a sense of opportunity or freedom if you're experiencing a loss of status or a sense of feeling as though you're not able to be fully who you are so as you get ready to settle yourself down and meditate set up street and closure is
Families of Negro Leaguers rejoice in MLB's decision to recognize league
"On wednesday. Mlb announced that it was quote unquote elevating negro leaguers. Two major league status within its official historical record which helps explain why google searches for the name. Josh gibson suddenly started spiking. Baseball says it's figuring out how to include negro leagues statistics into its canon of sacred numbers. And there is no resume quite as legendary or as mythical as that of the late josh gibson. The catcher that satchel page once unambiguously deemed the greatest hitter. Who ever lived. So i called up shawn gibson. Josh's great grandson and the executive director of the josh gibson foundation to understand what mlb's decision to elevate his great grandfather means to him. Well first of all. I don't like the word elevating. I think it should be more of a merger because niggly baseball player or major league players as well. So that's first and foremost this. And i want to bid tuesday night as josh gibson's greg grants and i woke up as josh jacobs. His grandson asher to cerebral calls questions about this happened. Literally when people say happen literally overnight it literally happened overnight and to wake up and see that in lobby made the announcement and josh gibson. Now what we consider not just one greatest league baseball players he. He'll be considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time and so for us in our family. It's a great honor. Ona understand josh. What you heard growing up from family from friends about how your great grandfather considered his own career compared to those who had the opportunity who were afforded that opportunity to play in the majors for jars. You know and the other great negro baseball players you know. They knew they were great players. They didn't even know by to tell him that it was just a decision At that time it was in that era. that kennesaw mountain land is denied the opportunity to play in the majors but did not stop him. They barnstorm against a lot of white baseball players. And you know as well as we know. I know is that a lotta times. They beat the white ball players in. So that's something right there. And so when i totally stories just in our family. There's we call josh gibson big josh. 'cause josh gibson junior of course is the sense that you can't say jockey get confused. I wanted to ask you about one of big joshes more famous nicknames. He was called very famously. The black babe. When you hear that sean about your great grandfather how does that make you feel you know. Let's say this bridge. Stevens bakers great grandson. He's one of my good friends. We go back and forth back and forth on this all the time. I didn't know that okay. Tell me about your relationship with him. And what you guys talk about on this regard. That's great so burn. Stevens is bait roof. Great grandson and so we always talked about. You know josh gibson's compared to my grandfather. And i'm like well that's what you but if you ask me about. Bay roof is a white josh gibson. So we go back and forth. Is we always say our people always say Yankee stadium was called the house. Ruth bill in ice t's brent are okay but who hit the furthest home running stadio i give them on that one. Well i mean. I want to even push that. Story further sean. Because i grew up going yankee stadium. He's the only human being to ever hit a fair ball out of the park out of the house. That babe ruth ledley built. I don't want to rub it in his face to. I don't go that far. I just say the furthest rebel. We all know he headed out. The ballpark. we know is over near babe. Ruth kane close no all seriously. I've heard several stories two different stories. I heard it. It's out of the ballpark. Been a heard from some players that hit like the top tier of moammar. So you wrote a piece of the undefeated in august about your grandfather's name being on the mvp trophy. And that may have been unthinkable at one point but now it does feel like there could be momentum towards that. Why is this important to you and your family. Then the peak kinda fell on our lap on. This happened to read an article about terry pendleton barry. Larkin and mike schmidt. Making a case to remove kennesaw Mountains landers name off the mvp award and it gets to okay. Well here at a names that they're considering replacing the name with in his frank robinson branch rickey and go shoot josh gifts literally again on the phone with my board directors. I said listen. We just found herself in a race. Let's see how we can win it so for us. I'm hoping that the vwa taking consideration of this and really think twice when they make a decision to rename this after josh gibson but this mvp war if this may not. The jaw is just about josh gibson. This will carry on the legacy of all the other great players as well. Who were denied the opportunity. So josh gibson is carrying several thousand players on his shoulders but his vp award the page. Family the buck leonard. Cool up a bail family. Turkey stars fan oscar charleston. Family all great players will all celebrate. It'll be named after josh. But every time i speak about this i'll make sure represent all the family members who were denied the opportunity

An Experimental COVID-19 Vaccine Begins Human Clinical Trials
"May May Peter Thanks for joining us. Great to be any pleasure. We're GONNA talk about Kovacs Peptide vaccines and the company's efforts to develop a vaccine for covid Nineteen Kovacs is a division of United Biomedical which has long produce. Vaccines May maybe you can begin by just talking about how Kovacs came about. He Asher. So it started about six months ago when cove nineteen was coming across ocean and essentially how you know my husband, my Lou gave Peter a content listen i. think we could do something about this curve nineteen we we were ground SARS, the first one almost twenty years ago, and thankfully for the world never win anything anywhere but this covid nineteen doesn't appear to be. Letting down. So I think we can leverage our platform for both diagnostics vaccine's what do you think and of course Peter was like absolutely let's do it. So that was the birth. Origination of Kovacs. Now here we are in body told for one vaccine later. Up there you're you're both in investor and vice chairman what was the relationship? How did you know me and what led you to become involved? So I had met may may an Lou years earlier through the X Prize Foundation they were at our annual visionary event, which is our big get together with sort of world leaders and Philanthropists and Ed became really super close friends. We have kids same age and I joined their board of a sister company called United Neuroscience, which is now rebranding as back sanity. and. I found them to be just absolutely brilliant passionate dedicated biotech leaders who had a very different mindset from the beginning that that redneck was very. Resonated with me from a perspective of things I care about about demonetizing democratizing healthcare, and and. So I joined their board at this other company. And in March when they called me a like of course, let's jump in and I helped pull together the Capitol to kick Kovacs off. And then May. and Lou who are co CEOS of Kovacs and also the other company vaccine entity. You'll have an amazing science team. Globally around the world and end within thirty days will was extraordinary from a standing start being able to use and leverage different parts of the of the previous companies. May Enter team first of all developed what is now the most sensitive most Pacific blood antibody test? This is not PR. This is have you developed antibodies right? The blame by test serology and they developed thirty different vaccines. And started. Looking at those the efficacy, those vaccines and ended up with a lead candidate, which is pretty extraordinary. Think of you as a a fairly big vision guy people may know you as the founder of the x prize earlier singularity. University. Also co-authored a very optimistic view of the future in abundance. Bestseller really a good guy who's embraced technology is making a better world. In some respects you you're interested Kovacs's understandable given the scope of this pandemic at the same time it. Almost, a bit mundane in that. It's it's not a problem necessarily in in need of a new technological solution. Is there something about Kovacs that? Inspires you in light of the other things you do. While they're is the it's the platform. Here in the platform, something, that may his mom? Who is the you know the? Founder of the company and and really the inventor of the technology. So we're living in a world right now that is healthcare isn't healthcare at sick care and the system takes care of you after you're sick and while we spend an extraordinary amount of money. In the United. States. Are Healthcare is awful I mean really is terrible. It's comparatively to other countries money we spend we should be ashamed of what we get result

Egypt's organ traffickers: 'I woke up screaming'
"A BBC investigation into further exploitation of migrants migrants who are forced to sell organs such as kidneys. To pay for a passage to Europe senior gang member in North Africa told the BBC that nearly half of those who give up a kidney I never paid. The kidneys are mostly solved by African migrants and refugees who use the money. To pay people smugglers if, of course they get the money was also reports of people having organs removed against their will reporting on this trade, and it's a difficult listeners. You'd imagine Richard Bilton. It is an ancient city at the heart of a vile trade. Cairo one of the hopes for the illegal market in human flesh around the world, there is a shortage of transplant organs. Here. They're harvested from the poor. Migrants and refugees sell their kidneys to pay to get to Europe. Many a tripped like Asher, who says she was drugged and then operated on to protect her. Anonymity were using an actor. I found myself in a room with blood everywhere. The door was locked and I started kicking it. Then I called the police and they came and got me. They took me to the hospital there. They told me that my kidney had been removed. There are thought to be five million migrants and refugees in Cairo. These are the people that the gangs prey upon. We want to get to the criminals. It's difficult. This's a dangerous world, and Egypt is not a country that welcomes investigative reporters. We get a break through. One of the main gang leaders agrees to meet, he said. They're arranging between 20 and 30 illegal transplants a week. His words were spoken by an actor. It's busiest in the summer because kidney patients get sicker. They drink a lot of water because of the hot weather. We have a lot of work during that period from all over the world and the people who don't get paid with their promised. How do you feel about that? I give them their money of the people agree a price but never pay up after the surgery. Does this happen often about 40% of the cases globally between five and 10% of transplants are thought to use black market organs. That's thousands of illegal operations every year. It is lucrative for the criminals. There's no protection for the donor's Adnan Sharif is from doctors against forced organ trafficking. It's illegal. It's unethical. It is immoral. They're exploited for their organs. Some from May receive a very small financial remuneration. Something will receive absolutely nothing at all on this is exploitation and so form ofthe modern day slavery. The Egyptian government says it's one prays and approval internationally. For its strategy to eliminate this heinous crime. It's made arrests and says the illegal operations happen in private clinics and hospitals rather than government hospitals. This trade is worth millions of dollars and victims say rules they used against them. They have to sign forms, saying they're donating their organs for free, but this paperwork can be used to keep them quiet. He bought sold a kidney but was never paid. I found myself in the room after the surgery. I woke up screaming. I got so scared. I was screaming. This is wrong. You cheated me. People called the doctor and told him there's a patient you did surgery on and she wasn't paid. He took the documents I signed to a lawyer. So if I tell the police they comprise, prove I donated my kidney voluntarily. I made this mistake and I don't want another girl to make it. The Egyptian government denies he Burwood have been arrested. It says victims have the right to report these gangs without fear on its hotlines. And it has increased the maximum punishment for organized criminal gangs Toe life imprisonment. There is no shortage of desperate people tonight in Cairo.

The Crime Cafe
Interview with Thriller Writer Andrew Allan - burst 1
"Hi. Everyone may guest is the author of the wall Asher Thriller series you also right to grind house hulk. We've gotten talked about. He is an infomercial writer and director is also into wild cope movies making them I believe. And runs a website called daily. Grind House Dot. com I guess today's Andrew. Allan. Hi Andrew. Thanks for being here. It's Sure thing I love your resume I mean you're you're by it was fascinating to me because I love sill as well as books I assumed that you were infomerrcial rendered director before you started writing books. Yes. Yeah I, my career is little bit weird in the sense that I went to film school and then I, broke two commercials while I was working on developing movies and I ended up getting a job at the home shopping network, which is based here in Saint Pete Florida and. It's bizarre. Everyone presumes it is, but it was really great experience and I learned how to do a lot of things including sell on TV and that often into doing infomercials, which is selling on TV so and I have to say I love it as ridiculous as it sounds I it's great profession. Sounds. Really cool actually. What made you decide to do infomercials and what prompted you to start writing books? Money prompted me to start doing infomercials. Is You know we all need it. We all like it. But three Oris was. Like I said, I. Learned to basically sell on television when as at. and. That is a natural transition into infomercials and when I decided Lake Age San. I knew I wanted to make my writing or sorry make my living still riding in. If, directing producing commercials. In what was great about infomercials was at a Niche. So instead of just saying, Hey, I'M A. Commercial writer and there's ten thousand other people are competing with. I said been infomercial right better and maybe ten people on meeting with. So now I can like authentically say one of the top it from our show writers world and I've got a ton of experience done thousands of commercials in the ask aid and all that sort of stuff so. It's great and that's how that came to be the reason I started writing books. was because I I remember reasons when I was creatively frustrated had been making movies had been writing screenplays in. which were fun and some of them got made some of them did. But all of them required collaboration and I had reached a point where I didn't really want to collaborate anymore. At least for a while, I needed a break. And that's even on projects that I absolutely loved movie that was aching with my best friend and. Even then like we would get into arguments and about I just needed a break from that. So I wanted to do something on my own and that's when I decided to write a book had a story. Kind of kicking around that I'd never been able to turn into a script. I finally figured out how to make that work in book form, which was the first of Asher took and. Took it from there, the other the other part of that story is. I was actually reading a book by. A very famous author that we all know who I'm not GONNA name and Not to sound Eric and I thought it was terrible house like a weight. and. I actually caught myself saying I could do better. And? You know a very arrogant thing to save for someone who's never. But I decided to see if I could back up. And I think I did. unbelie speaking I didn't think I was right. Funny because a lot of writers actually do start offers those kinds of thoughts I do this. Anyway it wasn't even looking down at the writing it was in fact. The looking at the idea of being writer was more like this story is not entertaining be and. I know enough about story structure from screen plays and things like that. where I could look at this and say, really was about me thinking this guy should be doing a lot better for albig their name is and how much money. Yeah. You points for originality on coming up with a protagonist is infomercial writer. Director. But I see that you've drawn from your own background or at least I assume you have. Tell US little about wall. Ask How is it? He gets into the kinds of situations that would lead to thriller. Series. What I had to figure out. As. He is comes from my background. I did go down the road of right now and that's because. As confident as I was writing commercials in his confident as was writing movies I had no confidence whatsoever writing a book so I figured I ought to. Rely on everything that I could get off the so. And then plus the idea. Of Him being an infamous rider was intriguing. You know. I. Like all of us had written read million books about cops and lawyers and soldiers, detectives and reporters. That's great. People are probably doing it better than me. So let me try something completely different. And I worked at it worked because I think wall what I like about wall. What I like about these books is that he has to rely persuasion to kind of get by doesn't mean he's not physical. There's a lot of action in the books and But. But he is a true amateur sleuth who has nothing to do with. Justice and basically starts out he lives on the Rainbow River, which is a real. River Donnellan Florida about two hours north where I. In he's he's in the river because data's friend's house by the water and finds his friend dead on the Bank of the river. With an alligator in the process of Jim up. But it's clear that the alligator did not kill him so. One thing leads to another and the villain in the story overplays its hand. And attempts to kill. Walt. And it becomes very clear that he has to do. Something a balance it's no. A- paranoid. It's legitimate in in the Diet figuring out. took. Let's see you also, right. Does poke at the series also correct. Those books like you fun. Grind House. I I. Guess. Okay so Basically the Grind House was forty second street movie theaters in the Sixties Seventies in eight Times Square. And They Kinda just show like all the really gross horror movies the karate movies, all kinds of stuff you know movies that were generally looked down upon, but also provided extremely visceral thrill. And I love those movies I think they're A. A love cult movies, and so my grind house pulse series is basically me coming up with ideas for grind house movies, it putting them at goes. It's different than like the wall Asher stuff is war. Thriller Mystery Thriller Suspense Ryan How's Paul is pushed things over the edge a little bit more. you know there's more violence and there's You know just like you'd see in those insane movies and they're really they're. Their books of movies I would love to see. Yeah Yeah. You. Should check public domain deserves some really crazy things that you probably already know that. That's for sure. Oh my gosh. If you receive Nanos hands a fate. Badly. I had yes. Oh my God. That's all say about that. There's some movies that are just so bad. You have to see them. That's one of them. Well, that's a little part of my resume I produced Herschell, Gordon Lewis's last movie. Own Donahue Herschel is he's the guy. He was the first guy to put Gore in a move back nine hundred and sixty three in the movie blood feast. and He did other movies like wizard of Gore or girls and two thousand maniacs. E, Kinda started it all and he was. Low budget exploitation filmmaker and I had the great fortune of. Meeting him in basically getting to produce a movie for one of my heroes. While that's fantastic. That's wonderful To get back to Walt. Is there an overall story ARC in series? So the first book was really just a test to see if I write a book. Well and that feeling. Of. Really sort of rabbit story. There was a slight. Subtle hints. To where it could go beyond that story. Then after I thought about it and I liked the process and I thought the book went well and I didn't get demolished by reviews as like yeah I'll continue the so. As it exists now there's a three book. Arc. Where each is a complete story of their full length novels, but the villain is the same in the three of them. The Antagonists Casino tag is more of a secret organisation kind of thing than just one person specifically. So there's arc with that and then in between each novel. I, I wrote an Avella. And those are side stories, featuring walt and some of the same characters from the boat but not related to that big overarching story. So. Just kind of Nice it's sort of like a breather in between, but you still get to spend time with the characters. That's cool. Yeah. Most of those are. Rooted in the fact that. Waltz basically best friend up on the river where he lives. Dining digi who is actually a criminal biker. And he's into all kinds of criminal stuff but he's just Kinda like one of those Florida Good Ole boys who are fun to be around and for whatever reason he likes wall is completely not of his world. So in the NOVELLAS. Those. Tend to focus on D. G. Getting Wall to do something for digi in that usually on the danger things like that, and and that's what cell shock which giveaway book for this interview is one of those things. Lead. US

The Amateur Traveler Podcast
Travel to Senegal and The Gambia
"Welcome the image traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about West Africa. I like to welcome to the show. Brian Asher from the world hiker DOT COM. Who has come to talk to us about Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa? Brian Welcome to the show. Thank you thank you for having me. I know you were surprised that we had not previously done in episode of Amateur Traveler on this region and as we were talking about before we started recording. We don't get as many pitches but also there aren't as many travelers who tend to go to west Africa East Africa. Southern Africa tend to get a little more tourists in general. Why should someone go to that region before we focus in on Senegal? Gambia I think. West Africa's really vibrance several my friends. Who have been there for years in the Peace Corps? Said it's about the People? It's about the markets it's about the color it's about the way they treat you just the life that's on the streets of West Africa. I think we hear of animals. Safaris maybe eastern Southern Africa West. Africa's is really the beating hearts of the continents with some of the most populous countries in the fascinating region with lots of smaller countries grouped. In that you can visit In the whole region there will. We've chosen to talk about Senegal and the Gambia one. Because you've been there recently and we always try and focus on someplace. That wasn't a ten years ago trip. The you've been to all the countries in Africa. Yes four fifty four nations and Africa hats off to you. Thank you and people may be wondering why we're talking about the two of them. This is one of those very odd places where one country actually completely surrounds. The exactly the Gambia's inside of Senegal. So the Gumby has no other neighbors have Senegal to the North East. The South and the West is the ocean. So it's completely involved excellent. And why should someone go to Senegal Gambia? I think Senegal and the Gambia great introduction to Africa and especially to West Africa. They're safe countries. They're countries that are kind of a soft introduction. They're not quite as hard hitting some the other countries in west Africa. Very safe to visit for me. The the weather was very nice after coming from kind of more tropical and intense heat in the Sahara for example movement way across and the people. The people are very friendly. There's not vowed kind of lively music in the streets that you can listen to all the time and there is a decent number of Europeans between but a large French population. There's quite a few Lebanese. That live there a special indy car in the capital of Senegal. And it's it's very soft welcoming place that would not intimidate so I think most people when they think of Africa that would be a great place to start and by contrast. Then what you're saying is there's some of their neighbors. We're them might be a little more. You think twice about going because of poverty terrorism Civil war or disease. Yeah those those are the only reasons I can think of not to go to some of the areas over the last ten years at least in western Africa and I think the Transportation as well kind of infrastructure with having made my way of public transportation there are a lot of Africa can be extremely slow and the Senegal Gambia. Our little breath of fresh air to be able to get around quite a bit easier than the light of the countries in the region and I'm fascinated to hear about this. I have technically been indycar but really only in the airport. And they didn't let me off the plane so I really knew very little about the area. So what kind of itinerary would you recommend? I think that Senegal be the one that you'd want to spend more time in. The car has quite a bit to see in there quite a few beaches right there. Outside of the city I stayed in a neighborhood called walk. Tom Which is nicely placed next to the African Renaissance Monument which is the largest statue and all of Africa. That kind of looks down on the whole region there and Indycar and you can take a couple of really nice day trip south from the car so if you stayed there for two three or four days I think that would be an ideal amount of time to spend their most people like I went to a place called Goree Island which is very famous for being one of the biggest places that had slaves that were coming out to the Americas and you can learn a lot but the history. They're easy to walk around. There's a ferry that goes every couple hours to get there and place it almost everyone. The cousin Senegal visits during the first couple days sides stay for the car to three days with the city and the surrounding area and then a couple of days up to St Louis which is about four hours for five hours north by bus. Okay and you could spend a day or two. They're known for its famous. Saint Louis Arch known. Not that Saint. Louis Okay the other Saint Louis in Senegal. It takes a good six to eight hours going by bus. You could take a private car if you want. Or if you're on a tour to get down to the Gambia assume that's GONNA take up half or two thirds of a day and then I'd be down in Bonn Jewel and area right below it whether it's nice speeches and a monkey parking things for two to three days so I think you could easily piece together somewhere between eight and ten days which would be kind of a nice length of a visit between Senegal Gambia. Excellent so you started us into car and you mentioned going out to the island whose name I've already forgotten it's gory island heart ee. Eileen with just one of the biggest hubs for the slave trade and they have fairies that go out every couple hours and that's definitely Come a must do if you're in Dakar. I think almost anyone I've talked to has done not visit for half day or two thirds of the day and real easy to walk arounds. Thinks about a kilometre too long. And that's locals there with colorful art kids playing soccer in slave museums. That are there that you can visit as well and so I assume there's a fourth year which is where they keep the slaves locked up. Yes and what else are we going to do the two or three days in the car? How are we gonNA spend that you mentioned the monument and there's a couple of monuments there the country it's about ninety six percent Muslim and so there's several nice mosques to visit as well in the lot of fishermen that go out and I love think West Africa? One of the images of the coastal areas. Are these colorful fishing boats that you can see like dozens of guys sliding off into the water and then sliding back up with their catch from the day and there's a lot of seafood that they bring in so these real colorfully painted. Boats is one of the images that you'll see on the coast there in Indycar and their fishing from the there than rather than from okay and is there a place you would go to see that. There is a mosque called the mosque of the divinity which had a bunch of these colorful boats right next to it and it's right there in the car about five or ten minutes from where I was staying in the neighborhood of calm and I stayed AIRBNB. There's lots of airbnb options there for budget travelers and there's all different ranges of accommodation but there are inexpensive options for those looking for him as well and I stayed with a local man there and enjoyed always like state local people to give you all flavor of what it's like will what I usually find when we're talking about. Travelling in lesser developed areas of Africa is that we're talking about not an inexpensive flight to get in relatively expensive for the distance intra country flights inside of Africa. Compare for instance or a US but then really cheap food and really cheap housing. Is that right? Yeah that's true. And so that's the Pros and cons. I always way between local transport and the flights I think the flights between the Gambian cars forty minutes so in say but I just checked in it's still upwards of one hundred forty to one hundred eighty dollars for a forty minute one slight. It's not too bad for Africa standards. It can be a lot worse a lot worse or west African flights but bus. I WanNa say it was about eighteen dollars that took me there so you just have to pick and choose. What's worth more your your time or your money. Well and that is going to be an individual choice. Yeah another thing. A lot of people like to do is there's a pink lake there several of these in the world. There's one in Mexico unless Jerry I believe and there's one about Sarah outside of Dakar. That is is another kind of one of them. Must do things on the visit. That would take you maybe about a half day and so that is really really pick. Yeah if you look at pictures online. There's one called Rainbow Mountain in Peru or I don't know how much instagram or things put filters on it and this one depending on who's pictured is it's pink. It was quite pink but sometimes the pictures make it. Look even more amazingly think depend on. The season tends to be kind of lighter darker shades of pink. That has the salt miners. That are out there. And kind of local people selling artwork in tourist items. So and so this is Lake Ripa. Yes my GRANDPA Loch rose. I think in French shore the lake what it can go by. I would say gory. Islands and Pink Lake would be to half day trips. That would make sense to have with your day or so exploring around the car so to make it two or three days for the car and it strives. You might say
Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
Is this country ready for 2.5 million jobless claims in a week?
"Know there is a thing that happens when a big story like this lasts for a while and I figure we are just about at that point now where it's happening so it's time to clue y'all in so we all know what's going on everything starts to sound the same like you've heard all the news updates before us for instance you've probably heard on this program. I don't know half a dozen times in the last week alone. That a number we are going to get tomorrow morning called first time. Claims for unemployment is going to be gigantic. Maybe two and a half million people filing claims against a normal week where it's two hundred and fifty thousand tops. I send that again because the big rescue bill that Congress still hasn't found a way to pass is throwing billions of dollars at unemployment insurance but every one of those two and a half million people who are GonNa Follow. More is a story in an unemployment system that is deeply deeply stressed from our bureau in Portland Oregon Marketplace's Mitchell Hartman Gazza's go so when we want this to go on here yeah okay. That's violin last. Friday was Steve Bench. Eros last day of work at the violin shop where he's fixed instruments for thirty years with music performances cancelled and business down. The shops closed indefinitely. We could use some work at home and we can do repairs but yeah. It's not exactly a Tele Commuting Business Ben. Shapiro didn't apply for unemployment right away. He'd heard horror stories of the Oregon website crashing. He finally tried last night and after some initial glitches got his claim. Filed Congress is sending money to the states to beef up staffing and administration but many states make qualifying for and receiving benefits. Difficult says Michael `grats at Columbia Law School since the great recession some states have reduced unemployment payments and eight states. No longer offer the standard twenty six weeks of benefits. So we've got poor and inadequate finance very inadequate coverage. It's just an archaic ineffective system. The Senate's new stimulus bill will send billions more to the states. Says Michelle Evermore at the National Employment Law Project? I think this will go a long way to smoothing the transition into into the next recession. It will pay benefits to workers staying at home to care for family members plus the self employed and independent contractors. This bill also will give everyone whether they're on the new pandemic unemployment assistance program or traditional unemployment insurance an extra six hundred dollars a week for four months that increases huge evermore says the goal is to replace workers pre corona virus paychecks and make sure people remain eligible for benefits without having to go out and look for work the last thing they should be doing during a pandemic. I Mitchell Hartman for marketplace. Another thing that people who two weeks ago had jobs but now don't have another thing they have to worry about is how they're gonNA get healthcare coverage from the workplace cultured as Marketplace's Megan McCarthy Carino has that one one week ago Sonia Zanardi was laid off from her job as a bartender in Washington. Dc. She's scrambling to apply for unemployment. Figure out how shall pay rent and what she's going to do about health insurance since her employer stopped. Subsidizing it on April Eleventh. Probably the scariest part of it for me. Because has we're going into a pandemic. She figures she'll get insurance on the health care exchange but in the past. That's cost four hundred dollars a month for a plan with a four thousand dollar deductible. She hasn't figured out. If she'll qualify for Medicaid but for now Cobra is just too expensive. I don't ever been this scared about my financial situation. But at least her former employer has paid for insurance for the next month. That's what Asher. Scofield is doing for five former employees of his shuttered gift shop the Frog toad in Providence Rhode Island being covered at a time. Like this is very scary. And we just want to make sure that everybody's taking care of through this that even before the pandemic more than twenty seven million people in the US had no insurance that includes many part time freelance and GIG workers who don't get health care or other benefits through an employer but might not qualify for public assistance. What is transpiring now is underscoring the critical need for us to refashion the social safety net. Nyu Business Professor Aroon soon. Dhiraj on says the reliance on traditional fulltime employers to deliver safety net benefits for workers was breaking down long before the current crisis. I'm Megan McCarthy Carino for marketplace. There was big rally today on Wall Street on news then. Economic Rescue Package was going to get done and then it didn't get done still up though we'll have the details when we do. The
Google joins Hedera Hashgraphs Governing Council
"Man's. Thank you for joining us today for our listeners. Thank you great to be back. It is great to have you back and for our listeners. Who Haven't heard you on our previous podcast. Can you please give them a quick introduction on Yourself Asher So my name is harmon? I'm one of the CO founders of their Hash craft alongside Dr Leeman Baird We've been working together. Lehman I for twenty six years always in deep tack. The we've done reinforcement learning or machine learning research for the Air Force. We talked computer. Science at the Air Force Academy cybersecurity managed massive software program for the Missile Defense Agency and then decided we wanted to become entrepreneurs and this is our third startup we to prior startups in the space of identity and access management and sold one to Fortune. Five hundred the other private equity and Leman wanted to solve a really hard math problems specifically how you can achieve the limits in terms of security in a consensus algorithm distributed consensus algorithm simultaneous to maximizing performance. How you can do both at the same time. And after of hard work he invented the Hash. Graph which is consensus algorithm like blockchain is a consensus algorithm. Has Graph is an alternative approach that has fantastic properties again both in terms of security and performance and we decided to take that tha market and here. We are years later now with their hash graph. Brilliant end in that one answer. You've athlete answered the next two questions. All I can one so fishing deeper interested. Yeah Yeah I mean I think it will be useful is because one of our typical questions is please define what is blockchain and Like we did in the last podcast if you perhaps could have another go at it and at the same time point out the differences between Blockchain and a hash graph. Why Hash crowd is so much more efficient than Blockchain system sure well blockchain as a term refers to two things it refers to a data structure. Which is a chain of blocks of transactions? And it's very serious just like it sounds in the way it's created and it also the the term also refers to a consensus algorithm that enables a community of of participants each of which that holds a local copy of that chain of blocks to come to agreement or consensus on which block to put next on the top of that chain in their by everyone keeps a consistent chain of blocks and often. It's proof of work. You know the use of a really hard cryptographic puzzle into novel ways that makes it possible for the community to to come to consensus on on which blocks you go on top of of the chain. But it's designed to be slow and it. The use of proof of work causes it to be slow and The the fact that there is a single chain that everyone uses also limiting in terms of its architecture hash graph similarly is a term that refers to both a data structure in this case. It's a graph in the mathematical sense. It's a graph that is whose nodes are or verticals are linked together with Hashes gripped graphically in. So it's a data structure in there's also consensus algorithm. That makes it possible for those that have a copy of the Hash graph to calculate how each other how the other nodes in the network would vote on the order of transactions and so they come to to agreement on the order of transactions that get captured in this in this graph because it's a graph rather than a chain all of the transactions. They're flowing into the network can be processed simultaneously. There is no need for proof of work. This process that slows down blockchain to give the community time to come to agreement. There's no need for any of that and so we've basically eliminated the too constraining factors. Proof of work is no is not there. And it's a graph. Instead of a chain and the result of that is fantastic performance in it's got some great theoretical properties specifically it does achieve the limit in terms of security at something called a synchronous. Byzantine fault tolerance. It's the best one can do and in its novel in those ways Brilliant thank you very much for that and we had actually gymnasts or very recently. Come on our show. He's the CEO of core and he was telling us about how he build his colonel virus tracker using Darah Hash craft for exactly the same properties. You just described now. We've had you on this show for about ten ten eleven months ago. What industries and geographies are we seeing the most adoption of our has graph? Well I wouldn't say that there's geography necessarily. That is adopting. Maybe more than than another and the industry's when thinking about the industries. It's it's also it's more like this. It's not really that there is necessarily one industry. That is adopting faster than another but the way I would sort of segment the market or break it down in terms of what is adopting versus. Not Is that. There are a lot of enterprise use cases that are being presented in that. We're you know we're working on with partners and council members that are kind of boring in nature in some ways. What I find interesting is that while most of the market is looking for a really sexy killer. Commercial consumer focused use case. You know everybody's looking for that killer APP. That is primarily focused on building a big consumer focused use case. Our experience is just the opposite. It's for example as a category just audit based applications where you WANNA take some information in get a consensus time stamp on it and use that in various ways maybe their regulatory related. Maybe you need to be able to to just store information improve that it. It was what you claim. It was on a on a given date. There's just a whole broad range of business to business process optimization focused use cases that I think are the ones that are going to end up being the ones that take the whole market Mainstream or result in its mass adoption. And so that's the distinction that I'm seeing. It's it's not a one particular industry or one geography is more focused on B. Two B. process optimization versus consumer focused applications

Managing Anxiety When Facing a Serious Medical Test
"We're GONNA talk about how to learn to care for yourself before during and after a serious medical best. Yeah this is becoming a lawyer in private facebook group. Hasn't it last few weeks yeah fears. The White Coats Their tests waiting for results connects a particularly challenging time. It's challenging for anyone but if you're living with anxiety then of course it's gone to I in the exile so I think we begin by as we so often do Just expressing self appreciation and self compassion that nobody likes to be scrutinized tonight in this way softening towards yourself most people uncomfortable with medical scrutiny. We don't like being focused on. I'm in a place. That's south to examine about his potential problems. Even if I'm at the dentist I'd Rather. He gave me the lowdown on each individual tooth. That one's okay. Okay that one's okay. Really WanNa wait while they go the round for fifteen minutes and then tell you if it's okay or not and I could be of instant feedback so self self. Compassion comes first knowing ourselves understanding ourselves being kind about anxiety and accepting I we feel with no the judgment because judgment just brings awesome and increased suffering. Does one of the things that has been helpful for me over the last year. Because I've been in this position of a few times in the last twelve months was to also communicate with Mike Caregiver. Let them know that. I suffer from health anxiety. Sometimes that I get the more anxious that I do have that that White Coat Syndrome is we've talked before in the past about what happens to my blood pressure when I go to the doctor blood pressure Asher just fine when I'm not at the doctor and so sometimes just letting them know how you feel in the process because for them it's second nature nature something that they're doing every day and they're very black and white sometimes and we are not we are not all black and white be. I need just a little bit more support in sweetness from our caregivers. And if you're not getting that it's time to find a new caregiver absolutely because it's there in the word caregiver anxiety give not lecture giver right. We absolutely have the right to to shift around until we find somebody that we're comfortable with and I think also what you've just described is to form of self compaction because you're going in and saying okay. This is how it is for me so you. We'll give them the chance to respond. Yes an adjust how they deal with the patient that needs some consideration in the area and absolutely right right to to say that I think it self respecting I had experience with a dentist. Awhile back and he's fairly new to his profession and before that we've been seeing the same guy for a long long time. And and he was on his way out new guy on his way in well new guy on his way in is trying to be extra communicative initiative about everything. meaning that if you need to go in for a crown. He's going to tell you that it's it's possible that while he's grinding down the tooth that there will be a crack in the tooth and if there's cracking the tooth and he won't be able to do the crown because then you can't do the crown and they might have to remove the tooth and you you might need it in and Right so by the time he's doing that you can just see me sitting there putting my fingers in my ears going non on. Because I don't WanNa hear that I don't WanNa take that story to wear. He's telling me it might go so we'll if because it's a what if it kicks. Accept your anxiety so I asked him. I said please if you think I need a crown then tell me that you think I needed ground because is my tooth is crap period and if I decide to get the crown and if we're in this position and something happens will deal with it then but by giving me all of these. What if chances of me doing this are very slim and the chances of me finding another dentist who it will respect? My wishes is very strong. Anyway that I know went off on a tangent. I think he's an again. You Oh you and I were discussing earlier. Willowy share what we think's helpful to others. Yes and this is that you know. We're all in the same boat. Yeah so I think it's good to know that and absolutely important to know that if we're not happy with one healthcare practitioner or the doctor dentistry will ever the profession. Is We have the right to voice our concerns to express the support we feel we need and we have a choice and we can go elsewhere. Yes and I think that's very important to go somewhere where you are most comfortable. Yeah I'm grateful my my primary care. Physician actually has her practice in a beautiful Victorian home setting. And there's just something and I would still my blood pressure would still go when I go there but when you're in the waiting room is is like a living room and then her office is like a beautiful bedroom. I guess with the exam table well. And it's up to you whether you want to disrobe or not and it's up to you whether you want to get on the scale or not and the way that she sits with you and stuff but it took me a few Doctors to find her again. This could be an entire episode unjust. This but I've finally found the team that I feel most comfortable with and that's not not to say. Oh Yay I get to go to the doctor. Because I don't ever feel that way but that to know that I had these people in place who get it who get that. I might be more more sensitive than than somebody else coming in And that's okay. Yeah on treated with respect Because that doesn't mean that I'm weak. It doesn't mean that That there's anything Eric what's wrong with me. I just happened to be in that particular form where my mind can go and get very uncomfortable in that space. I don't like it. If they know that then they can be sweeter with me. Yeah and I love our Chil- you are with your cellphone route. I think it's really important so again. It comes back around to self compassion not for us to be harsh ourselves ourselves because we're uncomfortable and of course a resilience can be up to eighteen so that so important tonight. You don't worry if at some point you find that your coping with test not so well as previous ups and you might think a. Why am I been like this this time when I coped with the last last one okay? That's just a very similar thing to when we were recently discussing anxiety relapse. We need to look at what's going on around us. Has An attrition has our Environment Howrah Stress Levels. You know. Maybe we're not opening as well took a lot going on right now. So you know to know that resilience fluctuates. It's it's not set in stone. It doesn't come into guarantees certificate. It's no it's not going to expire so we need to really keep with the self care and the things that helps opus feel calm and comfortable and if we've got something coming up this challenging than we need to take even better care and that's why it's important to talk to a trusted friend or family member about where you're at and how you're feeling along with the self care it's also incredibly important to stay busy busy during this time so that you're not allowing yourself just to sit and stew and worry and create stories with the way that our it will carry us off into story land stay busy and and of course pray

Living Healthy Podcast
Beverages and Your Body
"So Debbie Let's let's go through some of these liquids kind of one by one. Let's start with with the most basic liquid to humans water. How much water should we be consuming daily? If you think about an easy way to measure it would be taking your weight in pounds and dividing that and half and that's how many fluid ounces you would consume on a normal regular basis so not extreme exercise exercise not extreme environmental conditions. So if somebody is wow one hundred twenty pounds and there's sixty kilos so or whatever whatever so seventy ounces. Oh my gosh. I have so much more I thought I drink plenty of water but that makes me feel like I need eight fluid ounces in a cup and when we when we you say cup we mean like Measured Cup and most people will pick up their glass. Remember glasses can be like ten twelve or if you're looking at you now. Whatever this is I have in front of me books tall or something you know they can get up to sixteen ounces for glass sitting in front of you so it's not like you have to have eight of those right Do people drink water out of glasses anymore. Do you realize that he did do at all. It's always out of a water bottle but like I said you know I'm Pretty Brennan. Dan Class I just find it very interesting because there's always been from what I've heard like a set standard amount of water during the day but I've never heard it had somebody break it down by. I bought Biwati way but that kind of a perfect sentence. Well my gosh in clinical. When I used to work in a hospital we would? Yeah we would do it. Based on anything from their you know their condition and they have surgery and all these other things So if you're looking at just an average person that doesn't have all lows lab works and things like that. Well you know. Take your body weight in pounds divided in half Pluto's it that's a pretty good start right you'll find other people. That's it's not enough for me like I really am thirsty. I drink more Some people will drink too much and flesh out more of their vitamins and minerals. So then you go kind of by urine color and try to get that Nice Pale yellow that amber deep and it's not like just tinted water because then you're probably the drinking too much. Yeah that's that's what I'm all. I'm like constantly gauging. That and I need to drink a lot. More water is what I learned this morning. They're doing great Downing Gallon. Itunes Ooh no you know you need to electric. Let's keep them in the right so interesting because there's such a healthy balance he never really think about it with water. It's just it's just like you can't toxication so much of a good thing. So how. How does shrinking water kind of affect your overall health or can it the same with not having enough so how does proper hydration? Why is it important? Kind of view. Shuna cell in your body uses water whether it's for the cellular processes assesses and metabolism but as a whole fluid. You've got water in your blood supply. You've got water in your back of your are fluid in your eyeballs in your Bursa sacs of your joints transporting nutrients with your blood. Your using your lymphatic system which is another liquid transport so you really have it critically everywhere. I'd say probably if you feel my hair my hair dryers news no water in there. But I'll consider that outside bodies out. So what happens when you get when you don't get enough water. Hydration Yeah Oh man Initially really you can no lack of concentration and you just don't feel you don't feel right. Can you get headaches because I feel like I definitely it makes it can affect long longer term or more severe if you're talking about percent body weight loss then it's GonNa Affect your fluid volume put pressure Asher on your heart to pump out more beats to compensate for the lack of the volume so it can get quite significant. But that's more like say in rapid heatstroke right. Yeah I get really tired. I notice if I'm not drinking enough water I it's the weirdest thing I've noticed lately if I'm not entering enough water I'm tired I'm more tired. And then I can have a whole bottle of water or glass water whatever it is and yeah. It's great up. I think you feel it in your head had quickly and then maybe even your I mean without water. You're going to get constipated right. I was going to say like how quickly because I think oh I'm dehydrated and I've heard like you're almost hydrating for a day ahead of time like rather than drink a glass of water and you're gonNA start feeling a lot better immediately but I wonder that's still seems like a pretty quick remedy because liquids absorbed better or quicker found the body.

White House attacks Lt. Col. Vindman while he testifies in Trump impeachment hearing
"Certainly everyone was moved by Lieutenant. Colonel von Men's close to his is opening statement really invoking his father invoking that we do right here as he said in his testimony and it was really quite scurrilous that while he was chest define line using the White House. Twitter Account the White House's tweeting out a vicious things about Lieutenant Colonel Vin men. He's now under protection of the. US US army he and his family. That's really outrageous. In this day and age. They're treating him as if he is disloyal American when he is in fact a true Patriot a tree it. They talked about whether in fact by being offered to be the Defense Minister for Ukraine he was disloyal to America. I'd I'd remind your viewers that Madeleine Albright when she was secretary of State afterwards was urged by the Czech Republic her native land though she has been an American for a very very long time time now to become president and she liked Vin Vin. Men Thought it was quite amusing and I don't think Republicans believe that Madeleine. Albright is disloyal to America. And neither is Lieutenant Lieutenant Colonel Vin and the other thing in terms of this afternoon that I really want people to understand is the Republicans. Keep saying that Zilenski.

The courage of my colleagues were appeared and are scheduled appear for this committee. I want to say that the character tax on these distinguished and honorable public servants is reprehensible. It is natural to disagree and engage in spirited debate. This has been the custom of Ah of our country since the founding fathers but we are better than personal attacks and John Holliman. The personal attack was coming to him from the White White House from the White House. Twitter account while he was testifying indeed and you know I mean at this point unsurprisingly given the way the president behave last Friday even though the attacks that he in gauged anonymous were seen widely as being as backfiring as undercutting. The Republican cause made Republican congressman as vicious and vitriolic. As they've been made them uncomfortable recognized their strategy was being undercut by the president. And yet here we come around again two days later and the same attacks being launched against Colonel Benjamin I just I don't think we should expect anything other than that now but this is going to be the. It's an appalling a state of affairs that this has become conventional but the president has it has no shame when it comes to who determines to be his targets and I just think we should assume for as long as this process plays out that the president if the president can attack colonel a purple heart. You know he can. He can take anyone and he
