Rep. Jim Jordan: Kevin McCarthy Brings the Team Together
"Think what's interesting is you already have Donald Trump backing McCarthy Apparently making calls for him You have Marjorie Taylor Greene back in McCarthy We have you backing McCarthy We have certain Republican moderates back in the car You know I look at McCarthy and I try to step back he's not John Boehner He's not Paul Ryan He didn't try and undermine the conservative base or the mag of base He hasn't done what McConnell has done in the Senate gone after people he doesn't like to try and defeat them in the general election or in the primaries He's a different cat altogether I think Don't you Yes that is what has to happen in today's political world You got to bring the team together And he has done it so again I think that is what's needed for all kinds of reasons Most of most of which is just how radical the left is I mean again think about what they've done to our country No border record crime $5 gas 41 year inflation 41 year high inflation rate and of course what they're doing to your First Amendment Let me ask you this
Rep. Louie Gohmert: Working Toward a Congress With Republican Majority
"And if the Senate gets the majority, I will hope there is enough push from American people that it will wake the Senate up to what needs to be done because I think you'll see the house not do what Paul Ryan is speaker did, but actually go after the fraud and the corruption and start cleaning house. And I know Jim is making clear he's going after that. And, you know, Kevin McCarthy is saying he is going to make sure we help people accountable. Well, that's been the problem in the past. We would get people that would say we're going to do this and that like Boehner and Ryan and then they would do exactly the opposite. Not hold anybody accountable, but this Republican form of government with a little R it will not stand much longer if we do not hold these people accountable that have engaged in so much corruption. The Intel community has way too much power. The DoJ through the Patriot Act got more power than they should have ever gotten. And they continue to tell people on the judiciary. Oh gosh, we don't take this away. We're keeping America safe. But let me tell you, I've looked at what they say. They would saved by having some of the what I would say overzealous for the visions, the Patriot Act. And we don't need those. There's plenty of probable cause to get what we've gotten without them spying on every American which I would submit what's going on.
Jack Posobiec and Charlie Unpack Nancy Pelosi's Taiwan Visit
"There's a lot to unpack what's what's happening there, but the breaking news, Nancy Pelosi has just landed. She's a scientist that's right. Taiwan and I'm very torn on this Jack. So maybe you can help get me clarity and with it the audience, which is I'm no fan of the Chinese Communist Party. I think that our focus should be on the CCP, unlike how our focus is on Vladimir Putin in Russia. Some people say, well, Nancy Pelosi is showing this big show of strength by going to Taiwan. Other people say that, you know, we are unnecessarily agitating the Chinese Communist Party, which I'm torn and I'm torn for the following reasons. Not for political reasons. We know why Pelosi is going. I think she's just trying to get a midterm boost for the Democrat party. Let's also because it's a nice feather in her cap for the end of her career. And of her career and I also she's an asset of the Chinese Communist Party. A 100%. So I'm not even talking about the Pelosi thing. I'm torn in the sense of, is this a good geopolitical idea? Whether if it was Pelosi or whether it was Paul Ryan or whether it was Boehner or McCarthy or gingrich, is it a good idea to Pompeo to Taiwan or who? Pompeo talked about. I don't know if he went, but I know he tweeted that he would try to accompany Pelosi on this trip. So I don't know. You're the expert. So Jack, is this a good idea or a bad idea? Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan. Forget the politics of it. Let's pretend it's not Pelosi, which is obviously so nakedly partisan and political, of which I have no respect for her. Well, here's generally geopolitically. Well, no, here's the thing. If you're looking at geopolitically, if you want to help the people of Taiwan, you want to help the law by Jing the common man and women of China. Where's Pelosi on the tariffs? Where's Pelosi on understanding the economic leverage? Because that's the only real way that we're ever going to be able to achieve any movement beyond the status quo here because unless you stop the free flow of western capital to the CCP, nothing will ever change in China will absolutely the CCP controlled PLA. People's Liberation Army will absolutely clearly have a military advantage in the area. There's no question president Trump was very clear about this as well. That should kinetic conflict kick off. I mean, it would be bloody. It would be devastating. The entire island would be on fire.
What Is the Establishment?
"Many years ago as I've been doing this for many years now I began to take on what I call the Republican establishment I can remember peace written by an old friend rich Lowry Even asking the question what is the establishment What is meant by that And nobody else really in the talk radio world was doing that They would have these Republican establishment types on their programs and so forth and so on But I went to war with them behind the microphone of course And denounced them And I was an activist In the Tea Party movement I had written liberty and tyranny And the Tea Party delivered the house to the Republicans and almost delivered the Senate And Mitch McConnell was the Republican leader then too and he trashed The Tea Party said they would have won more seats but for these Tea Party extremists who were nominated He had the backing of national review the backing The Wall Street Journal editorial page either backing of Mitch McConnell And a guy by the name he may have heard of him John Boehner The Tea Party Elected enough Republicans where he became Speaker of the House and he immediately turned on the Tea Party Immediately as the guys like king zinger when they got elected from

"VW dot com Uh, Boehner, Candidate number one Was, uh, how about this to pay my two? Didn't get very many votes because everybody knew That the best candidate of those two he has doctor manage indeed. Yeah, the winner of boner of the day For today, the 14th of September. 2021 now qualified to be boner of the week. Let's go to Sim Gill. He's on the phone. I Sam, How are you? I am happy to be here. Bill. Sim Gill is, uh very well, Thank you. Gil is the Salt Lake County district attorney. And, uh, attorneys, Uh, prosecutors are making a little bit of News these days like Levitt down there in Utah County, saying, Um, I'm not going to take any more death penalty case. I will not ask for the death penalty in any cases. Anymore, and I know you're kind of getting in on this as well. What's going on? Well, you know, we have been working for the last several years in drafting up legislation and represented Snow and Senator Dan McKay. I'm going to run the legislation that our office helped draft Which for the first time, I think is a very reasonable repeal and replace of the current death penalty to death penalty right now is an antiquated remedy that we have it fails to deter. Uh, violent crime. In fact, in Clinton states, where the death penalty has been repeat, repeal. They have lower crime rates and the ones that do have the death penalty. It re traumatizes victims because it gets them started. You know that at the death sentence is not the end. It's the beginning of a 30 year process. It disproportionately impacts the to racial minorities and it's and it comes at a great taxpayer expense. So we've come up with a solution which says that let's get rid of the death penalty. Let's keep life without the possibility of parole and for aggravated murders. We would have a second sentence of 45 to life and 25 to life. And I think we have a legitimate shot at repealing the death penalty in the state of Utah. So you add the you add that different that other sentence that 45 to life. Is that so that you can have room to bargain. Kind of Is that what that's for? Well, I think what it is, is that when you look, my office has filed more aggravated murders than any other jurisdiction, and unfortunately I've had to sit down and speak but victims for the last 12 years who have undergone some horrific Experiences and 25 to life for the loss of the death. Death of somebody that they love. It's just not sufficient. And so when we talk about Punishment for this very heinous crime. That middle category was missing. And it also takes the wind out of the sails of people who want to oppose who want to keep the death penalty and said that we're not taking this seriously. That 45 to life gives the possibility of parole where you saved a life without the possibility of parole for the most heinous of all crimes. So I think it actually creates a tiered system which properly holds accountability, So I think it is as something that will help us push back against those who would resist the imposition of the death. You know who repeal of the death penalty? No, you've So So Levitt down in Utah County said. I'm just not going to Take any more death penalty case That's off the table. We will not ask for that, Uh, you used said that you don't feel you can do that. Well, the reason I said that is because one. We have been working very closely with the legislation to help write up this legislation and draft that. So, so I I believe in our participatory democracy, and I think we are going to give the legislation opportunity to address that issue. And, you know, look, I'll come back and revisit where we are at the end of the legislative session, But we're making a really good faith effort. To repeal and replace that the other thing is that look, I taken out to apply the laws that are there even though I may disagree with them, and my concern is that although we can go ahead and temporarily do that If somebody replaces David Leavitt, and they imposed that that we haven't really made the sustainable gains systemically that we need to. So so I will revisit that at the end of next legislative session, But right now we're helping drafted support that legislation. And he and are taking different paths to the same summit, which is we agreed that the death penalty's time has come and it needs to be replete, repealed and removed from the state of Utah. It's time to sentence the death penalty. Yes, I guess. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. That's terrible. You know, It's made some people, uh, particular family I know down in Utah County very unhappy because they have they lost. They lost two young people to very vicious murder committed by a guy down in Utah County, and, uh, they want him. They want him to pay with his life, but they're very unhappy with leather about that. Do you, uh, talk? Talk about that a little bit. You have to deal with people who were in similar situations. That must be really hard. If you know it is, you know, we've sat down with many families, and but it may surprise you build that a lot of the families. It's a very small percentage. That really wants that ultimate punishment because when they start to realize That they're signing up for 30 years of appeals. It's going to re traumatize them. And every time that news story comes up, the defendant takes center stage and the victim is forgotten to that process. So I've sat down and we've taken them through all the options that are available to them and overwhelmingly majority of the families. What they want is accountability and appropriate punishment. And in some of these cases that this person Does not get to do this to somebody else in the community again. So those are very difficult, difficult conversations because I will never be able to give them true Justice Truth justice would be that that this event or their family member was never killed. And so all we can ever give them is an imperfect justice and empower them in a way that they can move on with their lives, annoying that there has been appropriate accountability for this, so those are very difficult conversations and very painful conversations. Understandably. Sim Gill, Salt Lake County District Attorney. We're out of time. I'm sorry to say thanks for chatting with us, and we look forward to talking to you again in a couple of weeks. Thank you Take care. Alright, Sam. Thank you. We'll take a break. We'll be back to crawl towards the exits after these Salt Lake Film Society, go to S l f s dot org and look for the schedule for the drive in movies. This is very popular. People love this.

This is a story you know, reaction to President Biden's sweeping Attempt to get businesses to require Their employees to have covid shots. Um many businesses are already requiring that some are requiring customers to also be vaccinated. Well, one Utah lawmaker says that if businesses require vaccinations Then they should also take on the potential risks. Senator Kirk Cullimore of Sandy is working on a proposal that would make businesses requiring vaccinations liable if an employee or even a customer suffers an adverse reaction to the vaccine. If a private businesses going to mandate a medical procedure than they should take on some form of liability, Cullimore said the risk of serious side effects remains. Far smaller was going to say then the benefits of getting the vaccine, you know, only, you know what the hospitals are not full of people suffering from side effects of the vaccine fully vaccinated individuals experience significantly lower rates of severe illness. Hospitalization and death. He explains that anyone that claims they suffered from a vaccine will have to prove that in court, but he believes there should be a legal path for anybody to make such a claim. If they're going to get in the business of ensuring people to do things for public health, then there should be some risk involved. What a moron! Yeah. Come on.

Because i'm like i just this is just so good and i just feel like you. You say so many things that people need to hear with truth and with love and you actually talk about that a lot in your book about love and i love how you said One thing that you said is how we make love god and not god love which god is love but we make love got me just had so much good stuff and one thing that you talked about that i really want you to expand on more is are even tell people about. Is you talked about how we light to clean attributed. God is love and not the other attributes of god and that was really true. And i think dad kind of plays a part in how we do things sometimes like if it's love than it can't be offensive or whatever it is and so what do you think of itself could teach people. You're really good at the super thoughtful questions Yeah i i was reading this book. I don't even remember the title of it cited in holy now but he was saying that we are prone to like a stain the attributes of god that we most relate to so we don't relate to god's eternity right the fact that he there with him there is no beginning. There is no in with us. There is a beginning. And so we don't relate to that that's why we're not like god eternal like we don't even have to that on arms and so when it comes to love if we do here that god is love. We don't allow god's nature to define love we instead take our experiences of love in project that onto how god should be and that's part of the problem is that if god is love that means that god also defines in yeah not even necessarily in terms of what he said but what done what. How do we know what love is the gospel. God loved us so much that he sent his son. Whoever believes him shall not paired a greater love..

Now in his new book on the House, a Washington memoir. This is a colorful reflection on his years of public service and presidents and the politicians that he encountered along the way, both in Washington, D. C and on. Numerous golf courses. And now without further ado, allow me to welcome to the Commonwealth Club Speaker John Boehner. Well, more so thank you and good afternoon to you and to all over Tunisia. I'm looking forward to, uh, this discussion today and I, uh, writing books was dying by post not what I do. But over the years after I retired, I thought you might have been a pretty interesting life. Very interesting career. I think, uh, I think I could write a book to be pretty interesting. And so once. It's not about doing it, the filing out. Finished on, dear, We are that so well that Melissa far away well, so I looked at some of the reviews. Your book's doing very well. It's been reviewed and sort of all the fancy publications and the one that I thought I did. A really good job of sort of summarizing was from the L A times where they wrote Quote Reading. John Boehner's political memoir is probably a lot like just sitting down next to an old timer at the bar where he used to work growing up in Ohio. There's a lot of talk about the way Things used to be. And before you know it, you have had one too many. And you're not sure just how you're going to get home. So it is a very conversational book. Right? It is that was that when you set out to do it really feels like you're sitting with someone just telling his stories. Can you talk about your process and what you meant to do here? Well, well, I was attempting to do Woz want to be me on? You know, I'm known for being camp it. Sometimes we have plenty being straightforward on by one of the book to sound like me. Trust me. It sounds like May I wanted it to be interesting. I brother enough political memoirs and my life. On realized I did not want to write a book like all those other ones, so that red and so I wanted T o. I wanted it to sound conversational. I really did not want to have to record my own deal book. You know, I was just a lot of work now. I just I really don't wanna do it. But my friends and my staff have beat on me to no end and and so it was. That was really hard to do, But it's the same thing there. I wanted it to sound like I was having a conversation. With the person listening. Don't not worked out. Fine. Thankfully. Yeah, I mean it really It really is. It's a very I found myself, you know, finishing it far too early. I'd set aside a certain amount of time I flew right through because it's just it just moves along so well and a number of stories sort of take place on golf courses, of course. And especially with a certain former senator Joe Biden, and you talk pretty pretty positively about President Biden and about your friendship with him. You talk a little bit about that. And how do you think he's doing as president? Well, Joe Biden did. I have been friends for 30 years. Eyes a traditional Democrat. I would describe myself as a traditional Republican, but, you know, we're both Roman Catholic growth grew up and kind of the same guys circumstances. And, uh, well, we seem to understand the trouble. On During the five years on his finger. He was vice president. On. There were a number of times that on behalf of the Biden or Obama administration, hey, stepped in and be the negotiator between the White House and the Congress. So we have two more times that we get to spend with each other. But you know, every year or sometimes waste here, there'd be a joint session of Congress where the president would speak. And Joe Biden as president of the Senate would join me on the diets and we set behind President Obama. So, you know, While we're waiting for the festivities to start on the president finally be introduced. We spend ample time Upon the diets by ourselves. All right. One year I was 2011 or 2012. I was talking to him about the golf game. I played the previous summer, right shot by shot, even par. That's got a problem and I was telling Joel Vala on. Finally my staff came running over. To say it's all alive. And here, the president's might. His microphone was picking up our entire conversation. Thank goodness we were talking about girls feel like that's what you guys were talking about that a lot of other things, but It was just go. Well, it was great that you you talked about what It's like to be the speaker and to sit. You have to sit there without Moving a single muscle while the president gives his speech. It's the president tonight on anything, I would have done. What I've got me in trouble. And so I decided early on. I wasn't I'd see another speaker sit up there and Do things that they shouldn't have done. Andre got extortion, hated by the press over it, And so I I decide I'm losing my stare in the back of President Obama's head. Not make one facial expression. The only thing that was ever reported about me in the state of the union was that some reporter suggested I looked bored, but weren't you though? A little bit. I want to go. What the hell are you talking about? I'm gonna do all the negative things wrong right down the million things, but I didn't do any of them. I just sat there and behave myself. I always wondered what it goes through the mind of the people have to sit there on camera for three and sort of endure this speech. You were right about President Clinton and Obama and you both sort of and you say about both of them it in different ways that they had run a samad aerate or sort of as a sort of post partisan President, and then you sort of tact left when they got into office for Bill Clinton. It was with e. You know, the health care? Well, actually, both of them. It was really health care reform. Um, How is Joe Biden falling into that same pattern? Or do you think he's um He's sticking with what he what he ran on. What do you make of his is 10 years so far. We've got 50 50 house essentially and 50 50 Senate. Joe Biden won the presidential election frankly narrow, which is a prescription for divided government and, frankly, the way things are going to get done, we're going to get done in a bipartisan fashion on so but I've watched from the beginning of the year and When push comes to shove Joe's always trying to keep this party together, and it was kind of lean to the left. The progressive Caucus is is breathing down his neck on. There's been this skirmish underway, Frankly, since election Day on every time he kind of moves to the left. Keep The progressives in the party. It's kind of a backhand to Republicans, and as a result, it's hard to do a bipartisan deal when there was that bipartisanship s so it's gonna be interesting here in the coming months to see how this plays out because there's an example is infrastructure Bill's not gonna happen on a partisan basis. I don't think the Democrats have the votes to do it on a partisan basis. You know, Joseph thus far I have long end of the day for him. Or, frankly, anybody who serves in the office of president. It's the toughest job in the country on..

I'm just remainder guy who used to have a big job and i've actually One of my Accomplishments was walking out of congress after twenty five years pretty much being the same jackass that walked in more bainer. Says he just tried to be himself. The cover of on the house shows him sitting in what looks like a bar holding a glass of red wine. He is the son of a cincinnati bar owner. He never minded having a glass and disregarded a house ban on smoking. He writes like a guy chatting in a bar and talks of his experience including his experience with fellow. Republicans using so much vulgarity. That it would be hard for him to do a reading here on the radio. All of which leaves a question. How did this mainstream midwestern republican and up so distant from the party quite recently lead. Do you really think that if you were running for office today in the republican party you couldn't get elected. Oh i haven't got a pretty tough time. Like i said i'm a conservative republican. But i'm not crazy. Beaner was elected to the house in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. He became speaker in two thousand ten as republicans captured the house. With the help of tea party activists opposed to barack obama. The first black president bainer lead their efforts to derail obama's spending proposals. But in retrospect he says many of his colleagues didn't care about spending or government debt. They just cared about creating quote chaos on. The house is a story of a leader trying to stay in front of his followers.
Bowen Yang on How His Journey to SNL
"Bowen yang. Thank you for joining us. Thanks so excited. This is my debut on the cbc really. Are you kidding me. I think so well they will actually know you know you know what happened after we did boehner high on. Snl someone did reach out from cbc. They're like can hop on an interview. And i might the publicists At nbc said maybe not the best idea just because people seem to be very upset fits the best not accept people even further. You understand why people were upset. I know all the reasons people are obsessed up to all of them and i apologize deeply. Montrealers love when montreal is spoken about especially in something american but the irony is that as soon as we get that acknowledgement were immediately critical of it. Like they didn't get it right. It's not good answer for us but your sketch was so good. It was silly. It was fully character that was completely inaccurate. I understand anyone being upset or taking issue with it. But i'm the same way a- anytime someone acknowledges me anytime i get any attention if it's even slightly different from the kind of attention i want. Then i get very upset. But i think one thing that a lot of people don't know about you is that you actually live in quebec and so there is a real connection. I would happen. I i grew up in. I grew up in brossard and i spoke french better that i spoke english. I like. i spoke french better than they spoke. Mandarin i like it was i was truly like one of y'all got plucked away.

Abbianca Makoni, independent producer, on documenting UK women gangs
"You've got the documentary gun. Goals coming out on the first of february corrects. Why don't you stop by just telling us a little bit more about that documentary. And as of what's to come there so this solution-focused documentary samson i essentially spark to those on the front line of this issue so from the grocery charities. Those who training police teaches on also the victim survivors as well. Who go to them are now trying to give back to youth and trying to draw. Young girls On boys out of crime and criminal activity so it just looking at okay. This is the issue this is about is but what is being done and what can be done essentially on dogs we hit Solutions and ideas means by about how we can do. Better essentially lows of questions come to mind of course but it's a constant an easy time to explore this with with what's happening in the world. How did how did covert kind of affect the documentary coming together. It definitely did affect it. Of course with the restrictions are times where we Some point will. I can be able to go and film this We have to via zoom. How we're gonna get you to be able to do the interview by. Luckily we actually started filming a documentary at the start of last year so we started around february and then some of the film was around march so other covid with here in the uk. It wasn't as bad as as it is now and the restrictions one as well as i guess so over the fact that you're a multimedia journalists with the evening standard. The documentary has nothing to do with the evening standard. You chosen to independently while working with sampson followed zone of course as executive producer and editor. Why did you choose to pursue this story in such small numbers. I've always loved broadcast. I guess telling stories visually and particularly on this issue in this area. This is something i. i'm very passionate about reports. Crime in knife crime in the post. But i guess i really wanted to work with someone who i was very familiar with. I've known some simple years now. And i know that this is something he also wanted to explore and again a subject matter a. He's the media with as well. Gt know where he grew up in how he grew up. And i think that's how they came to light before you know what we are too young creatives who have a passion for this issue on something that you know although affects everyone it also affects our community will. Let's do it. let's get up. Let's see what we can do together and bring the topic back into the limelight. Could you have explored this with the evening standard. Like with your day job if you wanted to. I definitely think so. I mean the evening star. They have an amazing video team. That i'm sure would have been able to do an amazing job With this project. But i think again with everything happening nineteen and then with politics brexit the us. They just so much attention going in different areas. Where i think. That's another thing. Which i guess i thought about and i thought you know what the news extremely busy right now. I'll with so many different things. This is something that i can. I guess also do on my own. I think i've mentioned. I am a self usa so with some of the videos i did self she on my own which meant that. It did allow me to do not depend on too many people so that the project could actually happen and we didn't have the delays columbine easy doing this in what must be limited spare time you you mentioned. Start to get the star of last year. Journalists are obviously well known for boehner. The candle at both ends taught me about is a honestly. I was always tired. Because of course idea what i was using my weekends saw straight off to my shift then like sailed all night. It's absolutely crazy but again when you are passionate about something when attacking very sensitive sore you're gonna give it your all and i think janice ala's walled anyway so staying up too late. It wasn't anything new to me. But again because i knew that a lot of these victims of i was saying like look. You know we've been trying to get this more in alignment they so many things you want to talk about the also about how cova has exacerbated a few of the issue so the fact that you're doing this really grateful and just hearing those things as well it does make you wanna keep pushing And using your free time to ensure that the project does get done so but it was definitely odd. It was a Walking basically seven days a week basically. But yeah i can see your passion warrants this story so close to home. While few years. I did leave the frightened to knife crime and i guess you know the issue of knife crime itself. It's something that is definitely a meeting the a whole just london but i think some people until it gets close to home. That's when you really realize how bad it is. I guess Lost my friends. I thought he just meant wearing a few young people in getting involved. more youth committees workshops. Basically trying to help Those that might be out of education all at high risk of gang life. And i guess when your communicates me about some of these children. You're hearing that going through in your hearing what they see on a day to day basis and it is one young man who was fifteen at the time who told me that he seen people get stopped in the face. And you're thinking so young and you've just experienced the west thing. So i think that is what has i guess. Giving me this passion and this is to ensure that we all highlighting some of the issues around crime as a whole and how. It's affecting young people in particular more condolences. Ibm i'm sorry to hear about fine. Listen this is a topic clearly. With a lot of sensitivities and considerations going in in a broader sense we've seen this trend of journalists going independent albeit on their own publications. And that's not specifically what you're doing here. But when i've spoken to them they've said that you know i wouldn't want to do something to in depth investigative because i don't have the the gut check that comes with perhaps a full editorial tame. Did you think about that going in that having such small numbers when you are going to be exploring something so sensitive and and ethically challenging of course i think a lot of my friends at his friends are very supportive throughout this whole I guess process while i was continuously checking in on them. And if i ever had any question it was like okay. You know what. I'm doing this documentary and know how to go about this and how to go about that and i think With some of the country the documentary. I'd watch them previously anyway. Whether it was like a youth event so there was a lot of trust that had been built. Because again added john honest. I try to be well connected with a guest different communities us that when you saw stopped topics they know they can trust you if they ever have a question or a query. They're very quick to tell you. Well how are you going to do this in high do that. Don't shy away from also challenging you and ask you how you're going to go outside and

What happened To Jack Ma
"Development between chinese companies in the. Us is only part of the larger tech story in china. Late in two thousand twenty. China joined the us in europe in a global big tech reckoning when it released series of proposals to rein in the chinese fintech sector new rules on how online leaders could operate and the government increased scrutiny on players like ten cents at jd dot com in an effort to curb anti competitive behaviour. Then china effectively blocked would become the largest ipo ever. A public listing. The chinese fintech aunt group shortly thereafter china's markets regulator opened antitrust probe into e commerce giant alibaba aunt groups largest shareholder and one of the most valuable tech firms in the world amid all this chinese officials had met jack. Ma co founder of ant group and co founder and former chairman of alibaba. He's still one of companies largest shareholders. He's china's biggest business. Celebrity enriches tech tycoon. He's regarded globally as a symbol of china's success up until recently he was a pretty visible character. Even starring as a judge on a popular reality show. But jack ma hasn't been seen publicly two months. We're all starting to wonder where he's gone back in october. A financial forum in shanghai mom spoke out against chinese regulators claiming they're conservative approach hindering innovation. He envisions a different financial system for china. Global onlookers are growing more and more concerned at the chinese communist party would rather those visions remain unrealised. Here's becky quick. joining us. Right now is leeland. Miller china beige book international. Ceo and leland. Obviously it's just speculation at this point but it does come after. Some clearly heightened tensions between jack ma alibaba and chinese regulators. Yeah i mean the question right now is whether jack is is managing a very low profile for his own good or whether he's been brought in a dark room in his having new terms of alibaba dictate to him. A nobody knows nobody will know until till the government comes out with a statement I think right now you know. Jack is sort of muttering himself. Oops and it's oops on some of the things he's done in recent months in terms of antagonizing government regulators but this is something that the alibaba ecosystem has been something that has been antagonizing state banks and the state run financial system for years and years. So it's it's not altogether surprising that he's he's become under more pressure right now and he has a target on his back now that he's been completely vulnerable. You're not talking about the retail side of alibaba. You're talking about the financial side what they've been doing. And why don't you explain that a little bit to people why it's such a threat to the chinese banking system. This is a point that That i've made years ago when alibaba. Cbs's guest commentator for the alibaba ipo in two thousand fourteen and everyone was talking about spectacular. This company is and it's true. It's spectacular innovative companies. But the is alibaba's not one company. It's actually two companies It is a retail firm. Which is a chinese national champion. I think that's what people think of when eight when they think of alibaba most of the time. But it's also a giant financial firm and it has been innovating behind the scenes of chinese finance for years whether it's on my mutual funds whether it's e payments these are systems that have been beating the tar out of the state banking system. Alibaba for yle was allowed through you. It's it's mutual fund to to offer these very very high rates where the state banking system couldn't and over time china beige book. You can see that. There's been migration deposit flight from the state banks over the alibaba system. So jack has got an enormous number of people who really dislike him inside the chinese banking system and this is a problem that happens in beijing step in and they'd regulate the alibaba are force them to bring the rates down but this has been a tension not for months but for years. So so this is this. Is jack finding himself. Boehner and having lot of enemies on the inside leland. Just in terms of of what that means for the chinese population. I mean it's it's a good thing. It's it's helped so many people in china who wouldn't have been able to get loans otherwise wouldn't have been able to do some of those things so i have a hard time thinking that that in itself has been the biggest problem or why the communist party might down on him But you know some of the things that he said very recently have been incredibly antagonistic. Just in terms of things you're not allowed to say in china that he said right in one rule is you don't antagonize the chinese communist party and expect good things to happen but but look wall. What alibaba has been doing been innovative. It's been good for chinese consumers and households and the chinese economy keep in mind the vested interests that are affected by this. You have these technocrats. Bureaucrats have the bankers who have watched their their fiefdom less and less important over time. and so even. If this is good for china writ large. This is a real question. Mark to where the banking system falls in this new world order now. If jack had his way he was sweep the banking system aside and replace it so it may be good for china. But it's not good for a lot of party. People who are in the top of the power chain which means that jack better tread carefully at this point. It's raised a lot of questions about what this means for international companies trying to do business in china whether they be tech companies or something else but we also have at the same time the nyse announcing that it is not going to move forward with its plans to deliver those three. Chinese companies says it did this after having discussions with regulators. But you've got to think it's it's got more to do with who's going to be in the oval office come january twentieth a biden administration versus a trump administration. What what does the setup for just in terms of the us relationship with china. Yeah look i don't think biden particularly wants to touch this issue so he's keeping his hands off it but this is really about inattention by the trump team. I mean they put a rule in place and they sort of went off and pay no attention. You know certain certain agencies like treasury behind the scenes hoping to weaken this. And and that's what they did and so if you don't if you put out a bunch of rules and then you don't fall through on them. You're going to have a lot of questions over how they should be interpreted and at this point. They're so little clarity on what the administration was asking for. And what the executive orders called for and and what executive orders in the pipeline. That these That nyse in and a bunch of other financial entities basically said. We don't understand what's going on here and we're not going to implement them and they got soft backing behind the scenes from treasury not to implement them and so here you are. Everything is sort of falling apart in terms of some of these latest trump moves in the last days of the trump administration. Bring them back to what investors might be looking for. Is this a situation. Where manufacturing companies anybody. Who's making things that they're selling Either from china or to china. How is this going to play out. You have any ideas. I think that the biden administration has come in with severe restraints in terms of what they can do. They want to use political chits. They have on domestic issues. They they know that biden has had years and years and years of being called week on china when he was vice president. And so they're not gonna be able to do any heavy lifting on the china side particularly in the early days. So i think that from this standpoint biden wants to sort of he won't be able to pointing back he doesn't want to do a whole lot. And so you know you're going to be on a glide path at least until he gets both staff in you know three to six months from now but in terms of investment with china. This really has to play out. The chinese are certainly gonna come in and try to have a honeymoon. Period with a biden administration promising kinds of climate goodies. The question is who are going. To policymakers. That are gonna be in charge of china policy for for for the biden administration. And are they going to have authority within his realm in order to push back congress for certainly be at their backs but but this is some this issues. These china issues. That i think biden would like to ignore for as long as possible in his first six months. There are a lot of china hawks in congress. That would probably make that pretty difficult to ask. What what should we be watching. What are the key points or the key events. A lot of it has to whether whether cova continues to to suck all the oxygen out of the room you know code will be will be issue number one. But you're right on congress you're gonna you know you have some very fire. Republicans you also some fire. Democrats who who are who are who are quite animated on the china issue. There's a bipartisan agreement. Right now that china needs to be dealt with rather rather tough fashion. So i think that you're going to have a lot of pressure from congress. Which is why i think biden wants to have nothing to do with it. He's gonna let some a lot of some of the trump stuff glide he's gonna want to avoid the issue as much as possible. It's going to become harder and harder. As the beijing olympics comes into sight year and a half from now There is going to be a lot of push both domestically internationally to boycott the olympics A year plus from now and this is going to become extremely hot topic not yet but later this year and so i think he's got a pass for at least a few months but later this year. I think it's going to get a lot lot lot tougher on the environment on china again. I can't believe the olympics in beijing are only a year and a half or so away. A leland it's good to talk to you. We will see him
Did Alec Baldwin Know about Hilaria?
"Did alec baldwin really know and i. I don't really know. I really. I think i think he's a weird guy You know he was awful to kim bassey basing her his wife he was. You know awful to the daughter. When she was about thirteen is the famous. You know voice message that he left her. They were going through very very contentious divorce. And a lot of lawyers involved a lot of custody battles between alec and kim. And i think it was about thirteen and i think either she flaked on their time alone or didn't wanna go over to the dad's house which happens a lot when kids are about that age and their parents are separated and he left her. The message saying your little pig. And i guess kim did submit it in her divorce findings and it went public. And i mean there's even a youtube video of door the explorer like with the voice of it. I remember my sons went saw. It went very viral since then ireland. A very pretty girl also very popular and instagram. She is an adult now. kim has really not been acting. I haven't seen her in much. She's sixty seven years old. I did not realize that she was actually older than alec But i don't know what she's up to but when this story broke down a couple days after christmas who was the girlfriend. That is like kim coming over with a bottle of wine and let us fuck and talk even if she didn't care about hillary under five kids and that you know because obviously she was nicer daughter ireland. But there's just got to be some satisfaction in knowing that your ex husband's wife is been proven to be full of shit as far as this still doesn't mean she's not a nice person. A charitable person. But this is weird in a nutshell. She grew up in boston. She went to high school here. Her parents are white her. She's relatives all the way from like the revolutionary war or whatever. There is no spanish in her blood at all. The dad got into teaching some spanish studies. The data and the mom who are still married moved to spain in two thousand and eleven. And i think the brother might have gone there as well and visited or whatever and she went on in so many interviews so many things to say that her family lives in spain so in one interview. They're like now wait. What happens like i came here. I came here when i was nineteen to go to school at nyu. And the two female interviewers are like. Oh from spain yes. My family lives in spain. now. She didn't say i was born in spain and then she tried to say in correcting that when she didn't think it was going to be a big deal like the first day this broke. She did an instagram Tv like right to camera and then she took it down and that's when she said What i meant was. I moved from boston to nyu when i was nineteen because all these people went to high school with hillary in boston so i thought that was really interesting now. They met her and alec met. According to. everything's been researched. Is he walked into a restaurant. New york was there and she was there and she was speaking perfect spanish to a waiter and he said i must tell you and she said you must know me now. I think he just was like loved that little sexy spanish. You know much like a selma hayek. Who was his love. Interest in thirty rock for in two thousand eight two thousand and nine. He met hillary in two thousand and eleven. And i think that just was kinda like hot. It's like it's like the couple. Let's see we're here. They are getting married. I'm looking on my youtube for those of you. That like to watch on youtube all the photos from their wedding and she kept very much with the spanish theme. She has this long traditional spanish. Veil that covers your head. It's very you know it's from that type of style and they. I think they had a spanish speaking priest. They found eight. Spanish church catholic church in in new york to get married in and she did interviews forty people from my family over from spain so it was crazy. You can imagine how crazy it was with the spaniards here. Well those people are just people that live in their vacation home that like retired there and came over and then she said oh my god and my relatives there like how do we say your new. New name is baldwin baldwin. They don't their spanish. They don't know how to save baldwin. I mean it just continues on alec. Baldwin goes on david letterman and starts imitating his wife spanish accent and he goes and it's not being racist because she is from spain and she you know and so he's doing he's playing into it and i just think people sitting back loved it and the more that they loved it and encourage it. I think he just went along with it. I don't know that he ever really asked her about her high school life. He might be one of those guys. That doesn't really ask. I don't know. I ask a lot of questions. But you know. I just interviewed emily simpson from real housewives of o see and. She said she's never really asked her husband about his mormonism and they've been together twelve years so i don't know how other couples work but i think he loved the package so kelly just said what do you think when he met the parents and they didn't have an accent. I don't know that he really cared to get to know the parents a lot of you know there. He's an older guy. He has his wife. She's popping out babies. She's really sweet to him. She's down to boehner many time she can whip up a nice meal. I dunno and you know he has to. He's one of these guys that works a lot and he kind of has to. I don't think he's enormously wealthy as a star you know. He needs to take the. He does like a show with celebrity. Some game show. I forgot the name of it to the truth or to tell the truth. I don't know what it and he said. I take paycheck like i. There's jobs i take straight up. I need the paycheck. I've got you know six kids including ireland. And you know home in the hamptons home in new york i think he has really expensive lifestyle and But i think he totally loves and loves what she was. and i don't know i just. I don't know that. I think she was kind of used to presenting herself. Like that was starting to get into it and then like on their first date you know she said oh for the first five weeks we just held hands and then you know five months into the relationship. We got an apartment together and so it's just fascinating. I want to see a movie made about this. I really do of when do you go. When do i stop. Or for some people like madonna. Who picked up an english accent. When she was living in england did she just become so used to it that she kind of forgot her old way of speaking. Like if i had to do an impression of drew barrymore war. I could do her for an entire week and then i could. I do for a month. Yeah could do for year. Probably and then. Maybe i'll just forget if it was part of my life if i had to do this just like when somebody became becomes an actor in a really intense movie. They sometimes say i'm not going to get out of this character the entire three months. I'm doing this movie. I'm going to be like this one. It's break time at lunch. I'm gonna. That's what i'm gonna do because that's how i do it so i don't know it just fascinating and then at first ireland defended her and i'm so sick of people bullying you know and being cruel. What do you care and stay at people's lives. You don't know well. I think it's one thing to be an actor and you put yourself out there as an actor but in this day and age. If you're an actor or television personality that also goes and makes a huge presence on instagram. Then i really think you cannot bitch because if you're going to open your life on instagram if you're going to profit from instagram than people do know you those nine hundred thousand people that follow you do feel like they know you and they feel deceived
Serbia, Montenegro expel each other's ambassadors
"Neighboring countries expelling each other's ambassadors is not normally the prelude to anything good so montenegro. Booting out serbia's ambassador. On saturday with belgrade responding in kind raised alarm bells in the balkans which is the way of alarm bells in the balkans raised alarm bells elsewhere but serbia has now decided against declaring montenegro ambassador persona non grata amid much talk of goodwill between neighbors. So what is behind this spat and is serbia's man in pod. Grits still packing his bags. Well let's get the latest from our man in the balkans delaunay guy. Montenegro kicked this off by throwing out. Serbia's ambassador so let's start there. What had serbia's ambassador done to upset them. He said what they thought the provocative things about the notion of the montenigrin state. And he's like saying they sort of things and he said them once too often it would seem his most recent touch rent so this is a guy called vladimir bolshevik. Choose serbia's man. In montenegro he described this is the raw the flowery way that they not oppressive poverty. That the decision by montenegro authorities in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine to unify with serbia was a liberation and a free expression of people's will to unite with fraternal serbia Now the one thousand nine hundred union of montenegro with the what was then the kingdom of serbs croats and slovenes clue. There's no space for montenegro. In the name of that particular state Has not ever gone down. Well in history with a certain section of people montenegro Least of all those who say that we are an independent state became independent and twenty six and are larger neighbours. Should stop meddling in our as i mean. This is not terrifically. Diplomatic behavior from an ambassador. Was he going anywhere with this. Or was this the consequence of having perhaps over enjoyed one or two receptions. I couldn't possibly say on this. There's a lot of very undiplomatic behavior in this neighborhood. The those one diplomat in in he used to boast about spearheading a digital diplomacy initiative and this digital diplomacy initiative seem to entirely consist of insulting serbia on twitter. So that's that's the level of things. Here and keen. Listeners may have noted that in the past year relations between serbia and montenegro have been a little bit more tense than the normal in large part because of the montenegrin presidents decision to to launch an attack on the serbian orthodox church montenegro. He lived to regret this decision when his party. Then lost the parliamentary election in august. But this this rows being going on all year and the being little pokes and nichols and needles Going backwards and forwards between the two sides. Serbia as i read it has now currently given the montenigrin representative in belgrade. A reprieve at which point. I think we do need to give it up for the montenegrin ambassadors name. How can you refuse. A man called tarzan milosevic willing to in any religion be wrong. Any relation to any relation to either taza and milosevic is what i'm asking. I didn't think so. And this is not unusual. Balkan name by the way so. He's got very unusual parents. All these parents who thought that their son would go on to do unusual things which in some ways he has. I mean serving is montenegro. Ambassador to belgrade is something that wouldn't have been on their minds. Perhaps when taunton was A came into the world as some sixty years ago say but anyway He's got his reprieve. It would seem launch because of serbia's president alexandrovich There was a press conference in belgrade on sunday evening. At which prime minister. John boehner delivered. The word from the president's office said he decided the some things are more important than diplomatic protocol and he would extend the hand of fraternal friendship To montenegro which bearing on everything that's gone before was a little bit ironic. So is this actually going anywhere. This wanna are poised for a new era of rancor between serbia and montenegro or is this more one of your teacup the storms. There's actually something going on behind the scenes. Which is we're bound to have. A new government installed in montenegro. So i mentioned the election in august. We the government hasn't been installed yet. It's due to be installed tomorrow and this new government is fairly serbia friendly. It's it's a funny old coalition. The largest party of which is very friendly towards serbia and russia and they've accused the outgoing administration which is dominated by miller djukanovic. Even though he's the president and not the prime minister of stirring the pump basically they're saying the trying to increase divisions within montenegro society between ethnic serbs and montenegrins and with neighboring serbia before they got booted out of government formerly Tomorrow and i think that's quite a reasonable analysis. Delaunay thanks as always joining us. That was monaco's balkans correspondent god alone
What kids can teach adults about asking for help
"What can we learn from children about being better humans their first they loyal to their friends fast to defend quick to apologize to forget. But as past kindergarten teacher always a kindergarten teacher at heart I want to share with you a surprising lesson I learned from them about being asked for help I love human behaviors, how we act differently in different situations and environments in these kid five-year-old's with their adorable cheeks the perfect height to give one morning to an almost a competitive love or high fives were so interesting. My first class was called the Mars Class I attend students and each were so full of character but there's this one kid I'll never forget. Let's call him Sam. Sam behaved like he forgot he was only five he was so independent not only did he know how to tie his shoelaces but he knew how to other his shoelaces to. He also never took home a dirty thermo because he would clean it after his lunch and if something happened and he needed a change of clothes who would do so very quietly discreetly by himself. He didn't ask for help much himself, but he was the one that his classmates went to for help. Above. Things like can help them finish the Kimchi because it's so spicy. He did ally showing any type of affection teachers in came across as the Cold Kit. If you gave him a good morning. Hong roll his eyes and make a funny faces to show discontent but also stand there and wait if you didn't his morning plug. He was so smart and reliable that even forget that he's only five. As a novice teacher I spent a lot of time to come more experienced teachers interacted with their students and I noticed something very peculiar. oftentimes, when Kids Fall Day don't start crying immediately, they stand up puzzled as if trying to make up their mind, you know what just happened is as big of a deal enough for me to cry this is her what's going on. Usually kids will be okay until they love is with adults when that they trust in? No can do something for them. Is Lock then Bieber stabbed in tears? When I noticed this I so wanted to happen to me because to me that meant you had earned a kids trust and had proven that you're capable to help them with anything you are a hero to them. Week spent by of me just watching other teachers have kids run to them in tears in I'm watching in. Jealousy. Oh. Was I jealous of course I didn't want the kids to fall, but I really wanted that moment of validation that yes I had earned a kids trust enough to be the one to help them. Then it finally happened. It was a beautiful day. It was during recess at the indoor playground. The kids were playing in getting something slamming needed because teachers are forever limiting stuff in the teacher's room next door. Then I heard a kit yell teacher teacher Seinfeld down. So I went out to Pique Look Darren for Sam and there he was looking very puzzled as if he was trying to add double digits then he looked at me are is locked and then it happened his lower lip started to tremble at his tiny is starting to fill with tears. Then he bursts out in tears running towards me and it was glorious. I'll never forget that moment he let me give. Him a big hug into help him come down and turns out that yes he did trip over his own two feet. So there was one other four to reprimand. We check to make sure that he wasn't hurt and he overcame that with not a burns. It was in that moment Ali it didn't feel that I was there to help. Sam but rather he was giving me this gift this opportunity to help him. It is something very weird that I struggle putting down in words with his former ability in coming to me for help as if I could do something about it, you would think that gives me power but in that moment, no, it was quite the opposite and the power shift even more so to him. Being. Asked for help is a privilege a gift for you to do something for someone especially when it's coming from their place of Boehner Ability. With everything I learned from kindergarten or in teaching kindergarten, I went to conquer things in life festival were nine years and I landed in an association for project. Management professionals in a role that works extensively with volunteers. Working volunteers is a wonderful experience but there are some things I wish I had been warned about like how to set boundaries. It's very easy to fall into the rabbit hole of because they're volunteers late night calls. Yes. Because they're volunteers have day jobs, business trips that are almost exclusively only on weekends yes. Because they're volunteers have day jobs. Not. To Pat Myself on the back but I got quite good at my job as thriving off their relationships building. And the best way I knew how to judge whether I earn someone's trust was if they would come and ask me for help I loved it.
Having the Last Word
"I am about to or I am going to die either expression is correct. These were the last words of seventeenth century, French, Jesuit, priest grammarian, and man after my own Heart Dominique Boehner. Narrowly, edged out by eighteenth century French Aristocrat who declared I see you have made three spelling mistakes. As. He read over his own death warrant. We assign a lot of significance to last words hoping that we'll leave some deep philosophical epitaph or something funny like what's this button do? But you may end up with last words like American author, Henry David Thoreau who simply said Moose. Indian. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Many people think Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde's last words were either this wallpaper goes or I do. That would be typical wild but there are two small factual inaccuracies in this retelling. The actual quote is this wallpaper and I are a duel to the death either it goes or I do. And he said that a few weeks before he died. Oscar Wilde's actual last words were a mumbled prayer. He did also say toward the end of his life as he lay in bed sipping champagne I am dying beyond my means. With about a third of the world being Christian it's not surprising that God gets mentioned a fair amount. As the clock was winding down for one of the baddest. Of Golden Age Hollywood Cancer Stricken Joan Crawford her housekeeper began to pray aloud at her bedside. Crawford summoned her remaining strength and said, don't you dare ask God to help me. A priest was at the bedside of Francois Marie Oh, Rhett the philosopher firebrand known as will tear. The priest implored him to renounce the devil voltaire considered his advice but decided this is no time to be making new enemies. German romantic behind took a different view as he lay dying of tertiary syphilis. God will forgive me. He said that's his job. A quick tangent while the dead have been in our collective fears and folklore since the caveman days, our modern interpretation of Sambas is strongly influenced by the ravages syphilis. Its Body count his paltry when compared with things like the black death. But the five million people at killed in the Fifteenth Century alone definitely qualify for epidemic status. Syphilis comes in distinct stages. Primary Syphilis is characterized by painless sores on the genitals or mouth, which typically heal on their own. The second stage usually presents with a rash and fever. These resolve and the disease enters the latent stage which can last for years. You're not infectious in the latent stage, but the bacteria may still be damaging your heart bones, nerves, and brain. People would think they were no longer sick which was just as well since there was no cure anyway. Tertiary Syphilis the third stage. The skin may be covered by growths that break down into lesions that spread unchecked. The disease can away bone and caused tremendous pain. Sufferers could also experience numbness and difficulty with motor functions, vision problems leading to blindness and dementia. which combined left people shambling down cobblestone streets with their faces routing off. If you bumped into such a person under a ready gas lamp on a cold Monday night, you'd probably be willing to believe they were a corpse who had gotten elusive. It's grave. Will Save, the debate for the spread of syphilis whether it started in North America or Europe for another day. We have these last words because someone was there here in record them. Sadly, that wasn't the case with Albert. Einstein one of the greatest scientific minds in history. He was not alone in the room when he passed away but he understandably spoke his final words in his mother tongue and the nurse that was attending him didn't speak German. Perhaps his final wish was something along the lines of don't let anyone steal my brain and keep it in their desk for years.

The earliest human footprints in Arabia
"Now, we have contributing correspondent and gibbons. She wrote this week about the likely earliest human footprints on the Arabian Peninsula high an hi Sarah how old or how early are these footprints but that's a good question. They threw a whole package of dating methods at them and came up with in the Ballpark of twenty, one, thousand, two, hundred, and ten, thousand years old. Now the dates are not absolute. There's some questions about them, but that's a pretty good ballpark. How does this age compare to previous hints or clues that humans modern humans early modern humans were on the Arabian Peninsula. Here's the. We know that early hominids members of human family have been migrating out of Africa for two million years because we find fossils of our ancestors in the public of Georgia we find them in. Asia. We find them in Eurasia place, but we don't know how they got out and the most logical route is they had to walk through Rabia because they couldn't fly. They couldn't paddleboats a at that point the one landmass in the way between Africa where humans arose originally, our ancestors arose and Eurasia is through Arabia. So we know they had to go through there, but there's a huge gap there are. No tools older than three hundred to five, hundred, thousand years, and what is there is not definitive. The only fossil have a member of the human family from Arabia is a finger bone that is about eighty eight, thousand years old. So the mystery is, where's the evidence of members of the human family marching through Arabia, and then the second part of that is modern humans specifically, our ancestors Homo sapiens arose probably in Africa, because we see fossils in the ballpark of one, hundred, eight, thousand, three, hundred, thousand years of Proto early Homo, sapiens arising and Africa, and then we find more of these sort. Of Early Homo Sapiens in Greece dating possibly back to as early as two hundred and ten thousand. So we know that they got out right now we're just trying to find evidence. Is there something that going on in the Arabian Peninsula that either people didn't want to hang out there for very long or that erased a lot of evidence. Reagan. Peninsula, has covered with desert's it's very dry today the food desert where they found these fossils is parched arid but there were periods in the past where the planet was cooler and wetter, and during those times hundred, twenty, five, thousand years ago it was. One of them, it was green radio was covered with tens of thousands of lakes. They were grasslands between them. If you think about these early human ancestors, it's not a separate continent or a separate place for them to go to its Afro Arabia, right? Yeah. So it's an extension of Africa if the client is good and they're following large game, how were they able to find these footprints? This is a very large area and it's a few remnants of human passing through. Yes. So this team will have by Michael, Leah and it's an international team of Saudi Arabians in a number of people on. Has Been doing a search of scouring the deserts of. Arabia. For the last decade, they start with satellite imagery which helps them see parched ancient lake beds which have sort of characteristic white halio souls often these ancient sediments that stand out in the satellites and then go down to ground truth what they see on the satellites, an airplane shots they go in on foot in jeeps, and in this case they saw this ancient. Lake better rolling out as white sediment. It had just been recently exposed by Rosen and they found the footprints of the animals which was amazing and as I looked closer to one hundreds of footprints, it was four hundred mostly animals but they did identify a small number. It was seven that seemed to be human footprints. So they knew right away they were very excited about that that this was something that was important how Can you tell that they're human footprints and not some other upright walking relative? There's not a whole science of studying human footprints ever since the first ones are found in la totally in Tanzania and Kenya there've been a number of footprints that have been studied people use three D morphometric dimensional analysis with computational imaging or can really look at the depth and they could model how much weight would have been needed to make. That footprint, the length of the foot, the stride between the steps, and then they've done studies living people in their footprints in Africa to sort of test out those ideas and Lo, and behold when they do that to these footprints, they seem to come up with somebody kind of humor that was taller and maybe a little lighter weight more like a modern human of Homo sapiens and say an Andrew Tall so based on that. They say, Oh, these probably were made by Homo sapiens although we cannot rule out that nanotubes might have been there to is there anything else can tell about these people by looking at these marks I think if they get more, they can start to tell about their social structure footprint studies in Africa. I've got quite complicated where you could see the direction that they're going in the payson different members of social groups you can. To see what they are the packs of humans look like you know, what size are they how many are in these groups? What are they doing a lot of the way in this case, they're not spending a lotta time. They're just sort of walking through. This is a bantering group. What is really really cool. Though is that footprint site these are a snapshot of a single moment in time a single day most of the. Time when you have an archaeological site in a layer soil that you get the fossils of the tools and the dates, all that took place. This fan is usually hundreds of thousands, tens of thousands of years. So if you find an animal bone near a prominent human early Human Boehner tool, you don't necessarily know fear there at the same time as parch with footprints like these these were lay down in the same day maybe. A couple of days and they dried out and then got caught up in preserved. So we know they were all there at the same time. So you get this really cool day in the life look at the and of the animals they were with, which is really cool in this case and lots of animals. Yes. Almost four hundred footprints of animals including very interesting. A wild asses which I don't think we're carrying burdens but. That's kind of neat and they were elephants and the thing that's interesting about the elephants as their popular disappeared for the Middle East, just in Africa. Thanks for three hundred years ago and here they are in hundred twenty, thousand in Arabia and the camps they also Campbell's it's kind of interesting that such large animals with Aaron. It begs the question were these humans following them where they attracted them. Going back to the, we talked about it being about one, hundred, twenty, thousand years old. There's some question about the date but if that were cracked, is there anything particularly Gordon about this time human history about what we know about migrations that we could link these prince two? Yes. So what is really interesting is that genetic evidence says that everybody outside of Africa. Came from migrations that happened in the last fifty to eighty thousand years. So this state predates that we happen to know that early Homo Sapiens were in the Middle East pretty quickly after this or at the same time they're fossils in caves. At school and cough so that our early sort of product Homo sapiens. So we know humans are at sorta suggests that because we don't have DNA that dates back this early these were failed migrations. These were members of the human family that went out they weren't shelled migrations for them they lived, but they did not contribute to the gene pool of letting people today that's one hypothesis but it also shows that there's more complex story of groups of humans migrating out of Africa constantly whenever the weather excitement is right that it's three to nothing that they can get water follow animals to meet and trek. Africa. They can cross the desert. It looks like humans were doing that whenever they could and so how do they contribute tour ancestry today a really interesting question and how many different kinds of hominids out there. Thank you so much an thank you. Sir,
A Love Letter to Short Men
"DOT COM and at her website Carlin Betcha. Dot Com and here is a love letter to short men. Your height is not an issue unless you make it one. It's one of the most common openers I see on dating apps a man's height. It's usually the first thing men list and sometimes height is the only thing listed. Yep just height nothing else as if those two numbers measured in feet and inches contain multitudes. I understand why it happens. We are a society obsessed with looks we treat beauty and both genders as a currency attractive people make more money are viewed as more agreeable and somehow more valuable. This is part of the halo effect, a psychology term where we assign one single trait beauty to other characteristics kindness. Personally I have never seen a woman who cares about height in fact, I find short men hot, not all of them but many. Let. Me Tell you a not hot short man's story. I recently wanted to date with a five foot five inch guy within fifteen minutes of our meeting. He ass is my height a problem. It was not until he mentioned it. I had not even looked at the height he listed on his profile. I then spent the next twenty minutes assuaging his fragile ego and explaining why many women like short men it was exhausting at one point I think he read the weariness in my slumped shoulders and tried to self correct. I'm only asking because you're right about love and sex. Sure if you went on a date with a dermatologist, would you ask her to examine the fungus between your toes? I didn't say that, but I wanted to my sarcasm is a feral beast. Then, there are the many many short guys who lie about their height. You know who you are. I once went on a date with a guy claiming to be five foot eight inches. He was five foot four inches. That's a four inch lie. If we're keeping track I wore three inch heels for that date that put me at five feet eight inches. Greeted him with a hug. This was pre pandemic days his head landed on my chest. Awkward. For most women height is not a deal breaker but lying is So. Here it is short men the painful truth your height is not the Lady Boehner killer. You think it is it your lack of confidence that makes women's ovaries shrivel up and never want to go on another date again, I have dated a lot of sexy short men and they all had one thing in common nothing to prove when Tom Cruise five foot seven inches was sexiest man alive multiple times. Did anyone add a footnote sexy for a short Guy Hell? No. When Bruno Mars five, foot five inches shakes what his momma gave him are women getting out there measuring. Sticks Adriano. then. There's Napoleon. Napoleon. Never had complex about his height nor was he even really that short you can feel his confidence oozing out of the impatient love letters. He wrote to Josephine one read a kiss on your heart and one much lower down much lower. Nowhere in that letter, will you find a postscript saying unless my height makes you not in the mood? Yet Napoleon somehow got his name attached to the height inferiority complex known as the Napoleon. Complex. The Napoleon Complex states that short men tend to be more aggressive lie more and try to compensate for their short stature by being exceptionally cruel. But researchers found the opposite to be true. One study from Nyu phone short men are thirty two percent less likely to divorce than tolman. The study also found women married to short men reported greater happiness and short men did more housework than tolman. Yes. There is a correlation between happiness and a freshly floor. Clearly short men are doing something, right? I pulled over twenty of my most dateable girlfriends for this article I asked the same question. Are you attracted to short men most had similar answer? It depends on the guy that's a nice way of saying that is not the package. It's the meat inside. So
