"You're walking along the path in the woods. Maybe you're on a hike. Maybe you're headed to a picnic. The sun is shining and the warm breeze. Ruffles your hair suddenly. You're halted in your step. Your back foot is sinking into the ground. You try to play your other foot firmly to lever yourself out now. Both feeders sinking. It's quicksand. You'll be swallowed alive. You struggle to get free but that only makes it worse you'll be sucked under in a matter of seconds except my name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. Let me open. Today's topic that being things eighties. Kids were taught to be afraid of that. Aren't actually things we need to be afraid of i. This topic was voted on by supporters at patriot dot com slash your brain on facts and secondly that the research led me in directions. I wasn't expecting so the final product is as much a surprise to me as it will be to the listener. You do when your clothes catch fire and it always seemed like when not if the same thing you never see anyone on. Tv or youtube do when they find themselves doing surprise johnny storm. 'cause play. Stop drop enroll. Earning close burn you. Stop drop and roll because people burn to a message from the new jersey department of community affairs bureau virus thing if you try to tell me that a single year of elementary school passed in the eighties without the stop. Drop and roll lesson. I call you a liar. You were going to catch fire early. That much was clear but as someone who hates her home with wood and has been through two house fires and a lightning strike. Let me test that catching fire is not the inevitability we were led to believe but the lesson wasn't wrong as much as it was. Maybe a little late children's clothes and blankets catching on fire had been a common tragedy in households for centuries back in olden times when your heat and light and not a small amount of entertainment all came from some manner of flame. My mother's family actually lost a little one that way. Time and human advancement helped to drive down the frequency of juvenile incendiary casualties candles gateway to gaslight which was replaced with light bulbs and fireplaces were replaced with heat pumps the ignition sources were fewer and farther between but technology is nothing if not a double edged sword enter at the same time synthetic fabrics which rather than burning like cotton and wool would burn drip spread and adhere to skin. The truth of the matter is eighties. Babies were among the first kids to have a substantially lower risk of clothing fire incidents. Thanks to nineteen seventy five's formation of the consumer product safety act. Well actually a lot to nineteen fifty. Three's flammable fabrics act. But then i guess we should go back to nineteen forty-five end gene. Autry for those without a standing dinner reservation at golden corral for four thirty gene autry was a cowboy crooner who made his mark in radio tv and films for over three decades back in where a brand is a brand where the long hunt being celebrity. He had merch including branded cowboy costumes for all the little ones at halloween thousands and thousands of these were sold across the country. Then the tragedies began between late nineteen forty two and continuing until at least nineteen fifty four. An unknown number of children were badly badly burned. When the fuzzy fabric of the chaps came in contact with an ignition source and the entire garment would catch. It was three long years from the first incidents where people began to understand that something specific was wrong. Here that the material used for the chaps was the cause of these tragedies it was so flammable the entire outfit would go up in a matter of seconds before the child or parents even knew what was happening to react. This was the nineteen forties a time. Well before the constant global connectivity that we've been used to for twenty plus years so news of these incidents remained is located and the picture incomplete.

"Have we forgotten about the reindeer situation. The other thing. I wanna say is that my point on that. I think i still think people are not sitting my point which is to say in reality. Sugar sugar by the cheese was created by professional songwriters. Who had been in the business for decades by professional studio musicians and singers and all that stuff in the world of the show. They are high school students so high. School students made a song as good as sugar. Sugar all saying they have the potential to be much bigger and better because they came up with a song that forty year old songwriters who have been working in the industry for decades. They wrote that song at seventeen. B they have a dog. The place tambourine and i would pay to see that way. They wrote it. Seventeen the genesee in insulin. No i know. But that's only i'm saying.

"Here i three wrecks autry thank you not not the girl from sharp right gene gene autry or the plan from little shahar's exactly or the sister from vacation. Okay so the audrey meadows from. Tv's honeymooners thank you. I was waiting for it and it came late but it was worth it. The second sans is frosty. The snowman made the children laugh and play. They were surprised before there is. He came to life that day. Now when i originally looked at this the sheet and read the lyrics my first thought was what cut rate lyric website. They clearly have the wrong lyrics. But then i listened. I went on youtube. I listen to the artery version and these are the lyrics. Yes however i listen. I then went through and listen to several more versions including the riots. Right jimmy durante. Jackson five bunch of others. And all i wanna say to these lyrics and i understand. They were first but to these lyrics intimate autry hashtag frosty because these are not. These are not the lyrics that i recognize the lyrics. I of course recognized her. Frosty the snowman was a fairy tale. They say he was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day. So i'm not sure why the discrepancy. I'm not sure how this happened. Well i don't know why the lyrics change because these things are perfectly fine. If i had not known of the other virgin islands in some alternate universe. Where there wasn't whether virgin. I would have never given it a second thought. I don't know why this happened. I will say this. I listened to this song a lot. A lot of different versions of the song. First of all we'll get into it later but gene autry. There's two different versions of this song from the from nineteen fifty and then there is a moment that i can tell there is a moment. There is one recording. And i'm going to leave it to later. But there is one recording in nineteen fifty that makes makes the switch to fairy tale. They say and it seems that everybody's heard that and was like. Yeah that's right. Let's go with that moving forward so this version is only in a couple of a couple of early versions from the nineteen fifties. As far as i could tell. And here's the thing. I think i and i think everyone else. Maybe even subconsciously agreed that fairytale they say is better because it opens up the world where it's like frosties. This rumor that people about like this is almost become like an x files episode. Where it's like like like like scully's like hey scully. Frost frost man heard about this man. Frost man by the way Snowman is a copyrighted term bandage to snowman's band-aid. I can't say that across. No he's he's like have you heard about this This snowman going around town like alive. And she's like. I'm sure there's some logical explanation for it is rumor that like people are talking about right. I heard it's a fairy tale. This this the snowman who who came to life possibly committed a minor traffic violation. But we'll get there. We'll get there later but yeah so process. Now man made the children laugh and play. They were surprised before there is. He came to life that day so either way which which either version. It is at this point. Frosty is now.

Plucky Watson, Serena's Escape
"And welcome one last time this fortnight to the tennis podcast and Wimbledon relived on. What would have been men's Finals Day of the twenty twenty championships have finally. The Sun is out. It's been a frankly miserable. What would have been Wimbledon fortnight, which is made the the pain of? Missing out on Wimbledon slightly easier to bare certainly for me personally, but it's A. It's a lovely summer's day today. And it would be a nice day to be enjoying. The men's final especially is the The flying ants have the memo that Wimbledon didn't happen. they are out in force which is. A Wimbledon tradition. Hadn't done well, that's. Today's the first I've I've probably missed it and I think maybe the weather is part of that. And we've we've just watched a match with an amazing atmosphere which I think probably also stirs that feeling a little bit, and probably because it's the last day of what would have been Wimbledon and us is the last day of Wimbledon relived for now. What a pointed addendum to that sentence David. Wouldn't next one planned for us. When should we brace also? Developing! Certain Olympic week looming on the horizon A. I feel like I. DO actually need a week off now. I feel like doing relieved of all of the sports. The Olympics will be doing archery relived. Staging two thousand eight. She's just ain't doing on this fate going. Stop the Autry podcast. Doing the end is near. You can have asleep seen. Yes well I'm going to hold David to even I want a week off now that is that is is not my writing, but if it said. We need to on that. You know it doesn't apply to middle of the night. What's absolute? There's a moratorium on on that. today, folks. We take you to the year. Twenty, fifteen. And a third round match between eventual champion Serena Williams, and then British number one had the watson a much which ended up defining that Wimbledon Fits Serena in in some ways defining the extraordinary and dramatic year that she had on tour in twenty, fifteen and much that kind of. Defines Wimbledon in some ways we'll certainly encapsulates Wimbledon the the sun, setting over just resplendent center court with. British ten tennis fans out in force getting behind a plucky Brit that half in the mid never heard of that morning. It's. It's Wimbledon all over. Isn't it? And I think I don't WanNa. Put words in your mouth David. That's probably what made you miss it because what we've just watched so sums up so many of the things that we love about tennis I would say that's true. I also think it's it really does encapsulate the the Wimbledon that I knew as a kid, and as a teenager before Tim Henman came along when British though there was a big gap where? I had not known British contenders for the title. In on the women's side in before my time to be non-journalist Virginia, Wade and Sue Barker, won the French Open, but would never really perform to that level at Wimbledon. So, Strapped my formative years following the sport, Jeremy Bates had a good run in ninety two got to the second week had match points didn't manage to tighten them against gay full Jay. And there were a lot of those sort of moments. There are a lot of single standout moments of a player. Would make them. National News as back page. front-page news even plays like Andrew Castle. You got to eighty in the world that had a match against mats. Wilander that back then was hyping him to to a level. The even he didn't think was was appropriate. Time member in in the Post match press conference that that he did he. He guys this great line. After losing the final against Philander, he was two. It's one up for landing world number, one, nine, thousand, nine, hundred sixty, says he said. Let's just take it easy here I. Mean I lost and. That's that says a lot. Ready I think you know he. He was realistic enough to know and I remember Chris Bailey in nineteen ninety-three. Playing Goran Ivanisevic and the whole nation just stopped, it was nine seven in the fifth set twenty tonight night, the whole nation, stopping for about four hours just to watch this moments, and and he became a national celebrity in a single day. People had I mean it's way more than what Heather Watson inexperienced here in terms of going from somebody nobody had ever heard of Watson was on the map to some degree. This took it to another level question, but Bailey was an complete unknown and then suddenly. I remembering, going on BBC grandstand the next day with death Lynam the presenter who? Asking about his life and said, what did you go friend thinkable list and he said. I'm. GonNa go. I haven't got a girlfriend. And then suddenly the BBC was just inundated with letters from people offering their services his girlfriend. Services! Okay maybe that wasn't quite. Home. He told me he told me because he covered the Australian. Open with us for BBC radio for number years, and he told me that that night he went into Wimbledon village walked into a restaurant with a friend of his and the entire. Pub and restaurant just stopped what it was doing and turned around and just stead at him. and. He'd never experienced anything like like not at all until.

Des Moines Water Works Shelters-In-Place to Respond to Coronavirus
"Are in the midst of the corona virus pandemic and the water utility sectors. Incredible response to the situation I'm very happy to be joined by Some folks from Moines waterworks. I have Ted Corrigan. He is interim CEO and general manager. Ted How're you doing? I'm doing just fine travis. Thank you great and I have Kyle Danley. He is director of water production. Kyle how are you doing good? Thanks troves great. Thank you both for coming on so the reason I wanted to talk to you is because I I saw an article in the media about steps you all have taken to continue your operations which includes having some staff shelter in place at the facility there And this just shows the incredible dedication of people in our sector. It shows how we are really on the front lines of public health protection. And how you all are first responders really out there when there is a a situation like this so just big appreciation your way for it. Could you just described this approach that Moines waterworks has taken to continuing its operations? Sure you know we have had a contagious disease. Response Plan in place for many years. And as the co Ed. Nineteen things started to unfold. We realized that this particular virus appear to be very contagious. Much more contagious than other things we dealt with so we thought it was important to consider sheltering in place that was part of our plan but we thought we were going to need shelter people in place for a longer period of time We settled on two weeks as the appropriate length of time. Just based on things we had heard coming from the health community and whatnot and then when we still thought about sheltering people for two weeks. We thought we'd better do this right. We'd better make sure that they're comfortable. Better make sure they have food. Eat laundry facilities shower facilities really just couldn't imagine asking our folks to sleep on cots in the break room for two weeks so we did And up deciding that we would rent. Some campers. Some some Nicer Campers so the folks would have a place to get away at night. they are working twelve hour shifts Seven days a week for two weeks straight wanted them to have a decent place to get away and get cleaned up and have some privacy if they wanted it and we've set up a quite a pantry down there Cow Can probably talk more about what's going on inside he's are inside Guy But we really thought we needed to get the folks setup and in a way that would be sustainable for a two week period. How many how many people are involved in that that sheltering in place they're being onsite. Currently we have twenty one people sequestered across the three water treatment plants. Okay so you have three different locations than and when you put this plant plan into action. Was it something where the staff were pre identified? Did THEY HAVE TO VOLUNTEER. Where they how did that? Go about from a personnel standpoint. Well we knew what skill sets we needed. We needed operators. Obviously we needed maintenance and repair folks We wanted some support folks in some supervisors so as more a case of just identifying the skill and then I would let kyle walk through how they actually identified the individual people within those skill sets. We did look at the skill sets that we had and we. We tried to limit the amount of staff that had to be here as much as we could. We have typically about sixty staff members and water production operate that three plants of sixty remote sites. I we got down to about twenty or a little over twenty people so about a third of our staff being here again. It's a mix of operators maintenance staff laboratory staff and Fab shop staff to help make repairs on things so we scaled down as small as we possibly could annoying that. This thing is probably going to go on for weeks at a time. We're GONNA need other people to come in and trying to give some staff to get home to their families for a few weeks before their call back in against Looking at the smallest amount of group we could to meet our regulatory needs to continue to operate the plants and maintain them As we need to continue to serve water and serve Central Iowa down. That was one of my questions was. What'S THE PLAN FOR Kind of medium term long term here. So you're going to the ideas that every two weeks the team will kind of rotate out? Yes every two weeks we will rotate out or on our fourth day. Right now. On the verse. Two Week period staff has been extremely supportive They understand that during their public health role and that they need to take time away from their family and friends to make sure that the community is served Getting clean drinking water. So we've had great staff support in order to help out to to come in and spend their two weeks here so we were greatly appreciative of that on the inside their kyle. Talk a little bit more about What daily life is like now? I mean obviously you're doing everything with the operations and the facility and keeping keeping the treatment going but What's it like just as a person being in this situation? That's pretty unprecedented right. Sure it's we always spend a lotta time here anyway but never twenty four seven so being on the fourth day Things have been pretty good. The first day was a little hectic. Just getting everybody settled into the campers. it's very cold. Still appeared campers had been on winterized. We have a lot of folks that are not campers just having to understand how to operate the campers and things like that that a challenge the first couple of days and trying to get all the food in here for everybody's needs that was a challenge when we first started setting this up a couple of weeks ago that was a lot of the supermarkets were having limited supply of food so we were challenged trying to get food. Come in here We purchased xtra refrigerators and deep freezers. Now that we've got power Full hookups all. The Campers Setup which was a chore itself trying to get Water and sewer and power to all these campers onsite and refrigeration and all the campers were a little more refrigeration storage here but Food was certainly a challenge as we were planning this and trying to get things. Set up so Things are Set up nicely now kind of getting back to our normal Work schedule At least getting bill do normal work duties and things like that but Long days twelve hour days. That's a little adjustment some for some employees but again they've had a great attitude and they realized that they have a big role in helping the community and we just have outstanding staff. Yeah do you. Does it look like you will have two different waves of people that just kind of keep coming back two weeks on two weeks off or do you have more staff than that. Or what's kind of the numbers game look like? Well we again. We have about sixty staff members but I'm guessing the Sun will be here for two weeks off in the back for two weeks. Others may be every six weeks shifts are coming in it. All depends on their their health. We're checking in with staff daily. Make sure if they're home. Are you healthy? And Are you able to come back in you know? I always assuming that we're could get some staff members. They get sick. That's going to mix up the schedule And others are willing to come in and they have to do a backpack shift. We already have plenty of people that are volunteering to do that. If necessary. If they're co workers are getting sick they're not able to come back in so I think the schedule is going to be very dynamic. Is we see how how the community is doing. And how our staff is doing outside the Levy and making sure they're staying healthy and things like that so Hopefully we'll get most of them will the get two weeks off and be able to be back with their families for a couple of weeks but We shall see how things play forward. Yeah so how? How else are you keeping the morale up then Given the twelve weeks and the campers and you know I mean you got everybody works together but yeah how he how. He keeps things as light as you can well. Certainly the campers were a big help as Ted mentioned. No one wants to sleep on air mattresses and the plant plant is a very noisy place trying to sleep here With backwash is and everything else Pumps motors running would just not be a very comfortable place. A staff is very grateful to have campers bill to get away We've also been working with our it department. They are helping to set up. Better Wifi In the campground area so to speak where we have the camper. So that folks can get to these campers and be able to skype their family and friends. have some communication autry all to watch TV or keep up on the news and stuff like that. So we understand that technologies of wouldn't for our staff so they do have a few hours off before the end of their shift. They could reach out to their family and and have some normalcy to to watch the shows that they want to and things like that. That has been important. Certainly food is always important. Keeping a raise. Got What they wanted with. A need to So yeah it's it's been very positive so
The Future of 'The Internet of Things' with Ron Rock from Microshare
"Welcome thank you enter now before we get into this topic. It's probably with hearing your own definition of the Internet of things. Are I think it means many things to many people. How do you describe it? Wow what a heavy question to start our conversation with today. You're right Iot means a lot of things to a lot of people bowl and I've actually learned in the last six months that some middle management in large corporations advise me to not mention Iot in the C. Suite because it's got this bad reputation IOT was first coined back in nineteen ninety nine at Mit. And the idea was that we had computers running browsers and they were all talking to one in another. It was the height of the DOT com and somebody came up with this great idea that wow what if machines could actually talk to each other directly. What if our refrigerator and our car our and our appliances at home what all these things could actually be interconnected what of cars and traffic lights and ambulances were all connected so this was a big? The guy idea what happened in the subsequent two decades a lot of money was spent on Iot and frankly a lot of failed projects and so so through that the buzz came through Iot. Everything's GonNa talk to everything to suddenly. It became a bad thing to talk about in the C suite. The were a few exceptions things. Like the GE jet engine we were able to put very expensive sensors in that engine. It generates over one hundred megabytes of data a second but the ROI. I Made Sense. We're going to keep planes in the air so no matter what the expense it made sense but we never really saw Iot in its Vision of two thousand. The George Jetson error. We never saw all of that automation. Come together so I agree that. It is going to bad rep. And I'm also also not using it to him because one it's confusing and also the other thing and we might talk about this. People say aw is not my Internet camera. That's being hacked. And unless things just has a really bad connotation so I know you now talk about Maka share as a sensor as a service company that's I think a much more compelling view but what does it actually mean well and and I can do a precursor to that I'd like to say we talk about Iot under this. Concept of digital twinning digital twin has a lot of definitions out in the marketplace as well at the highest level digital twinning is. We're going to create a virtual replica of everything in our physical lives. Why are we going to do this going to do it? To drive operational efficiencies. We're going to do it to extend the quality of life. We're GONNA do it to find new business opportunities in the marketplace. I say AH extend the quality of life because data in general has gotten a bad rap lately. And so just like. You're teeing up the question hacking. Our Cameras Time magazine Kazini Tries To scare the hell out of us every week with our baby monitor has been hacked in. Its watching. Little J. T. so it's bad and it's consid- exactly all all of that so what we don't talk about and the press doesn't talk a lot about is all the good things coming out of data so cars that don't get into accidents in the first place are are happening. Because of thousands of sensors talking to one another and proactively making our automobiles safer proactively driving our health care system to look look for cures to cancer improve cardiac care. All these types of things are benefits of data but we take those for granted and we try to scare everybody with the data must be bad so I think one of the first things we we tackle at Micra share is the idea that there's a lot of really good data out there and the more data we can collect elect the more efficient. We're going to be able to make operations the more. We're going to be able to create new business opportunities new insights and let's face it. The companies beneath that run in a data centric business model are the companies that are now the most valuable in the world and legacy companies that have been around a long time are struggling and you need to make that switch or risk going away so I agree with you. Data is so powerful. But there's so much out there. Let's let's make more personal for our listeners. What sort of data can you collect? If you've got these senses give a sense of what is the data we can collect and how that might be turned into insights sure so at at microbes shared. There's so many a different industries that we could have pursued as an early stage company. We decided to focus on commercial real estate and we picked commercial real estate for a few reasons. One it's not regulated to everybody has some commercial real estate. It's ubiquitous across the planet and it's typically been underserved from financial our our technology investment perspective. So why do people care about data in commercial real estate. Well if I'm the tenant I want to know how many people are in my room in in my building increasingly. We're now working with a group of investors here in the UK. They lend the money to build the skyscraper. And so I'm going to give you a one hundred million in dollars but I'm GonNa Build into the Covenant of the bonds that I get to see the data of the occupancy in that building whenever I want to now that has real monetary autry value absolute monetary value and. Why do I do that because I want to know that my tenant is potentially going to go away nine months before they typically would tell me because I'm watching real time how that building functions so the money people interested the landlord is interested? The tenant is interested interested and the real low hanging fruit that we have found. Is that the facilities management folks. The people that cleaned that building are really interested in that data. Why typically large companies like here in London Caribbean went out of business? These were big companies quote unquote too big to fail billions of pounds running on razor thin margins on a race to zero. What does a company like really do among other things they clean your office space? How do they typically clean it? They have the minimum wage employees pushing a cart from point A. TO POINT B. to point C.. Every day on a schedule regardless of utilization. So what if I could actually clean space. That's being used and not clean space. That isn't being used fun. Little fact the number one complaint North America America and Europe in the workplace is dirty bathrooms and so suddenly I start cleaning the bathrooms that are being utilized more frequently and I stopped cleaning the bathrooms that for whatever reason time of year Time of day or no longer being used so one of our large global facilities management companies a fortune one hundred company. We were in a meeting a few months ago and they said wait a minute. Ron I think I get it. Occupancy equals dust and that is a fundamental game changer. So now you're in a razor thin margin business huge big global footprint if I can suddenly suddenly shave a few points off of my cost whilst at the same time improving the level of service. That's a huge win. For these companies comes is back to a wellness thing. So we. He'd millennials warner come to work and being spied and and make their their passion but if they're working in a facility that I like ords duty then they're not gonna be happy and I know that if I go to a bathroom facility. There's a teddy piece of paper that someone signs of being there but you wrote that's program. Every hour ago they with it needs cleaning. Knock so just to break down the sense of basically says this spice this bathroom. This coffee area is arisen being used so that data goes back to someone who can take action on. WanNa that's right and typically those sensors in that data create insights. Those insights are integrated in with your dynamics three sixty five accounting system or your pegase systems business process management bpm system or sap and these insights then drive action so for example being in a bathroom and having push-button there that allows a consumer to say. Hey this bathroom needs to be cleaned. I now have a date time stamp of when they push I that button. It needs to be cleaned when the cleaning person shows up. They have a small magnet on their keychain. They tap the bottom of that sensor and I now have a date time stamp is to win. The response showed up as we look at some of these big global facilities management contracts. The margins are so thin that they've have begun crafting service level agreements. SLA's and so now the facilities management company can actually get an increase in revenue. If they meet certain service Chris Level Agreements. We now provide the data that shows real time feedback from the people using the building and the facilities management companies real time response as to how they are servicing the facilities that. They're engaged
What happened between the US and Iran?
"The sound taken from Customs Lemonis funeral procession held yesterday in Tehran. The Iranian military he commander and head of the was killed on the third of January in a targeted. USS Strike. At back that airport. The death is expected to have repercussions just Iran and in the US but for the whole of the Middle East and beyond notch. My boobs look mayor the F. T.. Tehran correspondent is on the line. Tell us more high notch may commit start with what's what's happened. What prompted the US to launch a strike that killed Selemani any warning on Friday? It seems general survey money and for other Iranians hands as well as his Iraqi comrades. Where going to the airport when their cars were hit by Western strikes targeted assassination? The attack was a few days after iranian-backed Iraqi militias attacked the US embassy in Bava and after a civilian contractor was killed by a rocket attack the US blamed on Iranian backed militia in the US considered these as Iran crossing. Its redline by causing direct threats to American nationals and interests in the the region but now all of the says the US cross it's red line by targeting senior commander of the Iranian revolutionary. Surrey bought too many Iranians the national hero and because many reunions with it he kept the country safe from any foreign aggression and Security in Iran at a time other countries in the region where inflame people have been concerned. I'm for some time. The Iraq could become a flash point in the escalating tensions between the US and Iran. Can you tell us what Sulejmani was doing in Baghdad. And what is it that so frustrates the US. About Iran's role in Iraq was believed to be traveling quite frequently in the region in particular too Iraq Syria Lebanon where Iran's proxy forces are but he admonish initial kick very good relations with Iraqis. I can say that today. Iraq is more essential to Iran than any any other neighbor because of the US Sanchez which have exerted huge limitations on your own on. Banking transactions experts so Iran Iran exports around ten billion dollars of Iraq which is essentially judge the survival of Iran's economy on their the US sanctions but also like the Iraqi militias who are here as are extremely crucial. For Iran in its regional policies to standardize astounding stay yours to curb the influence of regional rivals so for Jerusalem money. It was essential to frequently Goto Auto Iraq Syria and Lebanon to keep these forces together down carry out. Iran's regional visions which are carrying having an influence of the U. S. is raid on regional rights. Of course the US would say that General Suleimani xt not supported backed mobilized militias river in Iraq. In Lebanon in Syria in Yemen which destabilizing the region and the trump administration is accused of the money of causing hundreds of American deaths. But that's been long known that Iran does sponsor militias across the Middle East. How did we get to this? Where do we trace the start of this escalation back to? I mean does it go back to Donald Trump's decision to unilaterally autry withdrawal the US from the nuclear deal Iran sign. We've all POWs in two thousand eighteen. This disconnection of their her latest goes back to two thousand eighteen when President Donald Trump decided to pull the US out of the nuclear accord order that it had signed with Iran and reimpose sanctions. Obviously Iran suffer from the consequences of Science Salat and after that Iran tried to use its leverage in the region to give it's power some analysts. Believe that one they would come that Iran on your sit at the negotiating table and on that day. Iran needs to have bargaining chips. Necessarily money was in charge of that side of Iran's leverage to keep the proxy forces powerful unto put divers under pressure

White House deliberates block on all US investments in China
"Administration is considering blocking investment in China that includes possibly delisting all Chinese sauce from US exchanges. Those headlines sending stocks sharply lower today. Let's get the latest on this developing story. Even Jaber's live at the White House with the details ain't yeah Melissa that's right. I'm told that those was headlines. That crossed earlier today. Those are accurate headlines. That's what got the market's attention they are considering some measures behind the scenes here at the White House to stop US US investors being able to invest in Chinese companies in one way shape or form or another but they're they're very early on in those conversations is my understanding. There's there's no time line at this point for any fundamental decision. All of this is framed in the in the guise of investor protection. The idea here is that there's a concern that there are some Chinese companies that may be listed in the US that aren't exactly what their purported to be because of the accounting standards and other other differences between the way the two countries countries handle corporate disclosures so that is being discussed behind the scenes. It's not clear there are a lot of options not clear where they're going to land or when that decision is coming one model all for it might be the piece of legislation that Senator Marco Rubio and others are considering up on Capitol Hill they've talked about that in the past the idea there would be they would delist companies unless they conformed more stringently to American securities regulations those Chinese companies would so that's one proposal but Rubio's office told CNBC this afternoon they have not been in direct contact coordinating with the White House on the proposals at the White House is working on so that's a separate idea that it's moving on a separate track but it gives you a sense of where this might land ultimately it's still dvd though would this have to come from Congress Ayman or a vote by the the SEC or I mean how can administration force exchange to decide what their listing standards are it it. It really depends on what they decide to do right. some of those ideas like you're talking about would require. Congress to pass a law and that would mean they'd have to get the White House would have to get support from Democrats adds to do it because Democrats control the House of Representatives so in a contentious election year that might not be as doable there might be other smaller more regulatory changes that they can Hindu on their own I'm told that the mechanics of all this are still being discussed and they don't have a particular plan for how to roll it out yet because it's it's still very early on okay amen. Thank you very much aiming. Java's there's Sony ways to go but what is definitely clear is the reaction that we saw in today's markets markets. We had a lot of the Chinese. ATF's dive lower closed session lows a lot of the Chinese stock did the same a lot of sort of the trade war poster. Children stocks like semiconductors took a further leg. Laura's it. The Micron News Wasn't enough and close on the lows of the session. So where do you go with this year. It won't mean if this isn't a I don't know what this is number one however if it's an Goshi hitting tactic tick as we get into the October date whenever that is the tenth or so when the two sides to sit down. It's pretty high stakes game of poker there now. I think they've been fit rumblings about this over the years. I don't think it's ever been considered all that serious but again in negotiating tactic. I think you have to be worried but I'll say this. If you told me at eight thirty this morning that these he's headlines would come out and say guy. Where's the market and we say well given the run. We've had given the backdrop of everything yes and he's going to be down. Fifty sixty handles souls Nasdaq semi down one fifty and we're going to end the bond market is exposed the upside none of that really happened again. It speaks to either the complacency of the broader market or the strength and resiliency of it now. I say it's complacent but I can understand the bull case that it's strengthened and relative strength given the rest of the world. I I think it's probably resilience probably all those things but it's probably more resilient. It's probably not getting ahead of this and the fact that this probably could never happen. I don't think you can D- list I all of these names. I don't think it's going to happen but when you look at the end of the month the quarter would you look at where it's seven handles above negative on quarter. We bounced back dramatically from the middle of the day. That's impressive. That's true and we did bounce back right off the fifty day almost to the number number so I think there are a couple of things to think about here number one just think about the MSCI indexes for example. You know a lot of our clients a lot of clients in general they get exposure to international all stocks emerging markets via that track that index so you think about em for example you're talking about a thirty percent exposure to China and that's been systematically going up as MSCI STI has been increasing the exposure to China so that's important as far as the broad market. I think we're probably range-bound quite honestly and to your point about the market we're covering today. I think a lot of it comes down to positioning as well as sentiment I keep saying it again and again on the show and I probably sound like a broken record but the FTC positioning second week in a Arro- net short a I will bear survey flip negative so bears outweighing bull so I think it doesn't mean we can't correct doesn't mean there can't be volatility but I think that put some floor under or how bad things can get by the way Nice Haircut Very High and tight Jeff thank you can. I did it for you on right to this felt a little bit like an American companies here by will all no longer you know and so in terms of what listing standards are. Let's be clear. There's a lot of Chinese companies aren't listening here because they can't make these standards for the good news folks is I think the American aircon listening standards and the exchanges are very very high and they include accounting standards and they include transparency in corporate governance. I I think that that is really the standard and I think that is something that will win out but but we're talking about Jeff talking about emerging markets which which I would put closer to forty forty five percent China and where you can see actually from the April highs the downtrend which is now four or five sessions well off trying to break through. It's a downtrend can't breakthrough frankly with the dollar going higher. I trouble seeing this breakout. Alibaba is a name that I'm long in a name. That's done nothing for a year and a half essentially traded sideways but if you look at the upper end of the range anywhere between one eighty and one ninety this this is stock. That's been dead money. Despite the fact that you had an invest today Investor Day Jack Ma kind of move on people thought there was actually going to start to be a little more transparency a little a bit more inside an ant financial a little more insight into how they were going to run their businesses so it's not a particularly exciting time to be investing in emerging markets or mega cast regardless of this noise. I'm saying it's not right time I. I don't think even if the trade war ended tomorrow I think these stocks would get a pop. The commissary autry twenty nine stocks. Everyone goes out and the number one fifty six if you add in Hong Kong stocks to twenty nine. None of them meet the accounting extenders that the US companies do what I don't understand. What what number are you referring to fifty six of the listed Chinese stocks listed on American Exchange Okay so one hundred fifty six companies which one hundred eighty six but if you go with the Hong Kong number addy and Hong Kong and Chinese stocks it's about two twenty nine okay and the accounting standards of of the US listed companies? None of them do so some some standards. That's what this whole. Debate is about and with that equitable. We'll act that they're talking about. They get three years to comply listen. I can't speak to the standards to be a listed company I but but the concerns it should be I would think is there retaliation. Now that to me is the bigger concern again. You know we push the envelope the Chinese pushback so it gets back down onto. Is this make a deal more imminent or is this make a deal less likely I would say this makes it less likely and again. It's shocking to me and I've I've been wrong so after prep but it shocking me that even off the backdrop of everything. That's happened over the last couple of weeks. The VIX has still it's seventeen handle and we're still within a whisper birther of an all time high knee S. and P. Five hundred quickly if you want to look at one thing the Russell the WM look at where it stopped on the upside at stocked basically we topped out in March March and a number of times since one fifty and a half one fifty nine level closed lower today to me the Russel's been tell all along and if that starts to sort of roll over from here that that might actually pull down the broader market. You'RE GONNA add in the price action the exchanges today yes. You're in my head well so then you're in your kitchen. That's going should be troubling to all of us on the ice. That's a small portion of their revenues but but it's but it's a larger portion and of of course you have people shoot first and then research it later. I don't think that this is going to happen. I think that's important but this has been going on for years and it stems from the House of Representatives bibs not from the White House. The White House is actually picking up. I understand this has been going on for years but it hasn't been going on until these recently with the context of a trade war with the context of a China that is going to look for ways to retaliate to guys point and China retaliates. What can they do they can make it very difficult for US companies to expand in China on it to do more business in China to get their stuff through the supply chains in China JV's in China to actually go there and it already was so it'd be clear companies like apple and some of the technology companies for sure have figured out with the rules of engagement are and and I think I've kissed the ring so to speak and I think you know that's how the quid pro quo takes place? I do think that this is a guy you're right. I ultimately it's very difficult to see how this doesn't lead to a ratcheting up of a of a tit for tat and I think as we go into October ten. I think the market is a little bit too complacent as it relates to trade. I think I think jeff talk about where positioning not so complacent greatly. Even though I think in the last couple of weeks those a I bear spreads are things that can change pretty quickly. They're kind of like like relative strength indicators they can get pretty overbought oversold but the general positioning and equities is very underway and the one thing that continues to be strange to me and I talk about this a lot too but it's that correlation Asian between trump's approval rating and the de Escalation of trade tensions and they're actually positively correlated trump has to know that he sees those approval ratings and those approval ratings are directly tied ride to the votes. He's likely to get in the presidential election. He has to know that in the back of his mind and even with impeachment coming up maybe that pushed him to want to do a deal a little bit more to try to save some MM SORTA face there and to your point about the positioning. I think the one thing that might be under appreciated. Is that look. The economy here isn't that bad. Consumer confidence bounce a little bit today. The housing housing data is better. I'm not saying we're off to the races but again as it relates to a support and a potential catalyst for that sentiment why would China retaliate the my because because they don't want the supply chain to change any more than it's already changed with Tara so we've heard of apple trying to work around China already. Why would they give other companies more of an incentive to try to do that. I think that maybe it makes it less likely that a deal gets done but I don't see retaliatory measure that behooves China. I mean I think I think what the other thing that trump knows is that you know he's always emphasizing the spread the difference in performance between Chinese markets and US markets and how they're feeling any more pain versus the US markets etc.. This is a way of weaponising the trade war hot and saying you know what we're going after Chinese stocks. We're GONNA make it more difficult for to raise capital in the best market in the world here and that's going to hurt you. I agree one hundred percent. Which is my point is and Steve Might Happy Right. I mean why would see I think Americans we look through everything through the prism through the Lens of being American so it's hard for any of us to understand how the other side would react the act but if you take a step back and say to yourself you know who's in a better position who's in a position to can outlast the other again president. She doesn't have to run for reelection action in a year president trump does so my sense is and I've said this for a while. I think the Chinese are better suited to play the long game than we are. I think very very clearly the our markets are the deepest most sophisticated in the world. China wants to be a part of these markets and I think this hurts

"autry" Discussed on Here & Now
"Radio. Wanna kiss? I just love. John legend's voice Patel us. Why you pick this one? You know, we've talked about this for several years about the factors. Not a lot of great new Christmas. This is fabulous. This is a guy who he's an is an extrordinary entertainer, obviously. Because the guy has walked away with an Oscar, and Tony an EMMY and just phenomenal. And he did his homework on this. He put his whole passion into this and loved how billboard reviewed is saying aiming for the sweet spot between borough lives and James Brown and understanding that John legend was a fan of net king, Cole's Christmas music. And so when you can when you can do that when you can use that as a foundation to build on moving forward with music. I I am so excited about this album and six original songs. I think eight covers just terrific. Okay. The next one that you brought us more of a classic by gene. Autry. I think rather than tell you the name. Let's just play, you know, dash and dancer and France. And. Com. Hupa Dom and blitz but do call. Famous. Reindeer of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer had their shine in os, and you ever. So you would even say I feel like I've heard this a million times. But tell us tell us about this one in the story behind the song. Okay. This was this was a McCumber reward promotional piece written by a guy by the name of Robert may in nineteen thirty nine and Montgomery ward. Over about eight or nine year period distributed about seven million copies of the Rudolph. The red nosed reindeer story. Tim Montgomery ward customers will Robert Mays brother-in-law just happened to be songwriter. Johnny marks who took that story set it to music and winter, gene, Autry and said, you got to record his gene Autry wanted nothing to do with this, really. It was gene on. Tris wife who convinced him. Hey, I think this is a nice song in your fans will like it. Yeah. It to the point that it's one of the best selling Christmas songs of all time in the history of MU. And what do you think it is about gene, Autry voice that worked? So. Well. That's a great question. I I've always been a fan of gene on trees, you go back to look at his TV show. And the guy was just such a cool friendly guy in his later years, especially as the owner of a lot of broadcast properties and of the California Angels. But this is the amazing thing about the legs of this song today. Here's a nineteen forty nine mono recording that this week on the billboard hot one hundred is number twenty seven on the same chart that areana 'Grande has the number one song, this we okay? The next one. You brought us is where are you Christmas? This is by henna tonics. Us. Now. Although sounds you're hearing they're making with their mouths, right? That is correct. This is their third Christmas, and they have ventured down into some directions. I mean doing Schakowsky Walser the flowers from nutcracker making Christmas from Tim Burton's nightmare before Christmas. These guys are extraordinarily. I was so sad. They were in champagne at state farm center. And I had another speaking agent at night and could not go see them perform, I add that is one of the things. I am going to do. This year is go see him perform because this is just like John legend. We talked earlier, you know, this is the new generation that I think is going to be able to crank some great passionate Christian music in the decades to come okay for the ninety nine percent of our listeners outside the pain area. The state farm center is a huge mushroom arena that used to be called the assembly hall, and I still call it the semi hall. Well, I know that's not the way of the future. Now is everything's got a corporate sponsor behind it. That is exactly right. They did. I gotta tell you the the university of Illinois did an extraordinary job of taking this icon, ick architectural and turning. It into a terrific arena. All right. Well, now back to the Christmas music and the next one you brought us is one by somebody who has really started to define the modern Christmas song. And that is Michael boo. Play. This is it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas hits dig into the. Chris month. Go. Take a look at the five and ten explicit once again with candy canes and silver lanes that glue. Beginning to the leg smooth. Ties every store. But the prettiest sight to see is the holiday that will be on your. Run. He just has the perfect voice for this stuff..

"Most generous decisions ever made by the head of a large company, the CEO gave all rights back to Bob may a year later, the mass market release of the book made the wards copywriter a rich man and with a book a bestseller numerous toy and product deals were soon. Cut amaze entire life revolved around a story. He had told to comfort a worry daughter remarried and with a growing family Bob couldn't imagine anything else that could improve his wonderful life. Then his brother-in-law Johnny marks decided to adapt. The story into a song marks who had written music for a number of major recording stars hoped that the voice of Christmas Bing Crosby would record the song. Rudolph the red nosed reindeer when Crosby past marks offered the song to Dinah Shore. She wasn't interested. Either other artists were given the demo, but none of them wanted. It finally cowboy star, gene, Autry was approached and marks figured that. Autry might be looking. In for a follow up to his earlier Christmas hit here comes Santa Claus. Besides gene, unlike being Dina, often sang songs children were his main audience, but like Crosby and shore. And the other artists Autry was unimpressed. He had already discovered a song. He felt would become a seasonal children's classic in. If it didn't snow this Christmas. There was no doubt that the favorite title was a great song and a perfect children's single but marks begged gene to give route off a second. Listen, the writer figured that. Autry might find a place for the misunderstood reindeer on the b side of the record. Gene took marks demo home and played it for his wife Aina as they listened. Autry, scoffed that there were already too many songs about reindeer. But I never thought differently Columbia records wanted Autry to record four songs for a Christmas release and Rudolf was the last song chosen while Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore looked on gene. Autry is Rudolph the red nosed reindeer? Streaked to number one on the charts. It would soon become the second best selling Christmas song of all time just behind white Christmas through books records television specials and movies for tens of millions of children of all ages. Rudolph has become as much a symbol for the secular wonder of the Christmas season as Santa Claus while there are many lessons to be learned from this magical story, including that while it takes courage to be different being different can be a blessing..
2018 NFL training camp preseason players to watch
"A few more days of practice Head of them still and the latest is Anthony Costanzo and the way that coach. Reich kinda describes the injury to Costanzo is Oh it he had it and he's got it back and he's gonna There's. Gonna be some rest right he's gonna. Need a little bit of time. It's as vague as. Anything, out. There I'm wondering about Costanza 's future tell me I'm wrong Yeah Tony I I don't know about in terms of long term but I think. It's something to monitor the, rest? Of the that it'd be the first injured. Hamstring about two weeks before training camp. Started and then re tweaked it. During Friday night practice It's. Been really really durable NFL career he's only miss three games, maybe since his rookie season it's eleven and he looked, at positions on the colts. Roster and talk about depth I think left tackle might be, the most bear and unproven position on the roster so Dongo's bend your left tackle for the last seven years and he's going to miss a little bit of. Time, and, that, is very vague and maybe he doesn't play the, rest of the pre season but you would think just a tweaking of a hamstring he would be able to go by the regular season opens up here in a little over a month So you don't see it as a serious thing when you take a, look at the injuries that he had last year No, he was hoping last year two years ago think or maybe even the year before that when he was heard so I I don't. Think it's anything to fret over long term why. This is a guy that has been extremely extremely durable in bell career That guy wanting the, blind side of you know Through that awful twenty eleven so you end up through Angeles early. Years in these past couple of years as well I don't think it's anything that. It's a reoccurring injury that happened for several years maybe came back a little bit too soon, from that hamstring injury and and he openly. Admitted he kinda. Over trained in the off season so rest stuff you don't. Need a Santa Costanza in the month of August you need to see some of these other guys play left tackle in case this does become a lingering issue talking to. Kevin Bowen from ten seventy the fan dot com that's where you go to get all of. His latest on what's going on a training camp one of the things I noted is that when it comes to running back where, a little bit, of everywhere and nowhere on here we've, got MAC I think people are happy with him. But you, need a, little bit of that day Angela shoulder maybe better, but he still needs to hand off the ball who is he handing off to and, what are we seeing a lot of young guys Tony with Robert Turbin suspended for the first, four games James Andrew lock arguably I think the top three running back to the roster none, of them have, played with lock when you talk about, Marlin MAC going into the second season the mid. Rookies and, I am, highs and Jordan Wilkins as well and Jim Irsay, had quite hyperbole on Friday night saying that he thinks Marlee Matlin rush for fifteen hundred, yards this season I don't know if anyone in for Is He has his, bell Donald Trump of, sports just don't let them tweet Did he tweet which one was it he said it yeah. Said that we have three hundred and fifty yards rushing all last year so that's that's quite the jump for the second year back and especially. On the colts have said they want to be running back by committee so I think there are some young pieces to work with with MAC and what Jordan Wilkins the fifth round pick, out of night's camp, and I kind of bored More of a hybrid player probably help you out on special teams maybe a wide out as well so that's really really. Unproven and when roster cuts happen and the end of August you know you might be a decision that you look for more of a, more of a veteran objects I. Do think there, is something. To work with their but if the group they just, hasn't proved, themselves on the NFL level quite yet as you see it so far as in training camp Who is the player that we should be looking at and who's the player who you think is causing the most concern But I. Think a player that's really, surprises then the Niko Autry new defensive lineman signed from Oakland this past season. Back in March, I think one of the I think it was the first free, agent signing, McColl patio in, twenty eighteen and you know when you're talking about quit Nelson and how dominant the rookies ban, you know in full pads the guy that have occasionally been Autry and. The colts need some help with this new four three Friday and, Autry I think could be kind of a nice surprise I. Think that a guy that you feel, good about concern standpoint I'd probably go back into the secondary and go Quincy Wilson the second round pick some last year Who figure to be. Maybe the number one cornerback a corner in. General I think as a physician group that hasn't had a lot of play making here. In the first couple of, weeks at grand park and they're rotating a lot of bodies there doesn't look. Like many documents, in terms of starters and that group so they need Quincy Wilson, to a, merge because you, spent a second round pick on them you know we know full well how valuable corners are, today that I Sal and the colts just don't have a lot to. Work with with that you know kind of really a it's of, your top four corners I would say three of them are..
