"My mother knew that she was raising two black daughters who would be treated differently because of how they looked growing up. Whenever I got upset about something my mother would look me in the eye and ask, So what are you going to do about it? Paris checks a lot of boxes. She's not only a woman of color she's been tested in major campaigns in the most populous state in America. She was California's top law enforcer as attorney general. She showed her interrogation skills is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, notably in the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, and she showed her debating skills by directly confronting Biden during the presidential campaign. Correspondent Mary Bruce says, We'll be able to see her again. Soon. In the debate form, Harris is poised to turn those famous debate skills on Mike Pence. They are set to debate in just two months. And while the president is eager to cast Harris as a radical and far left, Trump himself used to support her before running for President Donald Trump donated $6000 to harass his campaigns. Another top contender for the VP slot was former national security adviser Susan Rice, She told NBC's Today show she is all behind the Biden Harris ticket. She has a track record. She has a voting record. She's been quite clear. Oh, and she will be on this ticket in support of Joe Biden. It's not her who's top the ticket there. Team Joe Biden leads that team and Joe Biden's policy positions are the ones that were all committed to supporting. Harris is the daughter of immigrants, a father from Jamaica and a mother from India. Her mere presence should serve as a powerful counterweight to President Trump's anti immigrant policy. Shakaar Bondo says Kamala Harris is a good fit.
Kamala Harris becomes first woman of color to run for vice president on a major party ticket
"Named his running mate for November's presidential election, and she'll make history as the first woman of color on a major party ticket. After months of speculation, Vice President Joe Biden has tapped California Senator Kamala Harris to join him on the Democratic ticket for president. Richard Martin, longtime political consultant, says picking Harris just make sense. Despite the way the presidential campaign started in the end, he chose her because of her experience because of her background as a prosecutor, and because of some of the great work that she did in the hearings, those hearings he's referring to wear for confirmation of Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, But what can we expect from Harris on the path to the White House is going to prosecute the case against the president. And I think that's really what this election is going to be about. More than anything. It's going to be about a different course for America. That's Brian lock reporting. Harris is expected to be officially introduced this afternoon in appearance with Biden in Delaware. Local

As Melbourne Recovers, Regional Victoria Is Struggling
"So it's really great to see that the numbers in Melvina starting to level off a little bit which is Greg. Norman but what we're now seeing in Victoria is that country areas seem to be. The case of seem to be increasing the are on average. That's right. So they're the interesting figures from yesterday are looks even Steven. So my precipitous decline is not happening and unfortunately for Torian. So let's hope it happens soon but sitting underneath or some some figures where regional Victoria is pretty stubbornly persistent there the numbers are up and down, and if you take the average, the trend is. Still although maybe it's just turning the corner with Stage three Geelong. Bendigo is a problem and so there is fire circulating in regional. Victoria and that's holding up. That's underpinning some of the numbers that you're seeing out to Victoria and it's a real policy issue here because they're going to stage three, they don't necessarily believe they have to because a lot of country areas don't have any covered. Had No experience of it. But you could envisage a scenario which would be terrible scenario, which is that the solve the problem in Melbourne and Mitchell Shire, but regional Victoria takes off big time and it doesn't take much to take off. So the question is, do they go to stage four in some parts of regional, Victoria Ledge and Bendigo? Right it wouldn't have to be the whole rest of the state but in those other other places that seem to be emerging hotspots, perhaps they do need stronger restrictions there your and ring-fencing them and so so that you're trying to do what the actually didn't do properly in the thirty six suburbs in. Melbourne. All those weeks ago. Is. Do that in those in those regional centres and then quite a few healthcare workers perhaps about one hundred in the figures that came out your as well. So healthcare workers are really turning out to be a major issue and a major problem I. Mean we did talk about this a little bit yesterday but just to recap what what are the main ways that we can stop transmission among healthcare workers? Well, it's multi faceted. It's people coming from areas where there is cover nineteen and bringing it in with them, but it's almost certainly mostly caught in the healthcare environment. In fact, that's what Brett sunset a few days ago. And it means that they've got to really get tough about case definition recognizing where there's risk is probably risk all over the place and that P probably needs to be much more widely warn and they've just got to be risk averse one of the people who one of our listeners has written in saying that we should be talking about the fact that is airborne when it comes to protecting healthcare workers did I need to have more negative pressure rooms in hospitals and those sorts of things very difficult to engineer negative. Pressure rooms the so it's fine to say that, but you've got to it's a big deal to have a negative pressure room. So for people who don't know what we're talking about, this is where you suck air in from outside your essentially removing the air from the environment and fresh air is coming in but the problem sometimes with negative pressure is that the arrogance recirculated internally as well so that you're not Nisus you might be actually spreading infection of try to look at this some the happy indications where some single rooms. which are not negative pressure. And we our people are awake not on a ventilator. So if you're on a ventilator. In an intensive care unit, there are viral filters on the ventilator. But if you're in oxygen with covid nineteen in a single room, it's possible that that virus is being circulated through the rest of the intensive care unit and I've heard stories and yet to actually have them confirm. That this is a common problem internationally with intensive care units and in Canada, they've punched holes in windows and Putin, extractor fans into the windows to solve this problem and I know that some intensive care directors are concerned about this but I've tried to pin down and I think there is some variation around the place. So you see you've got to be really careful with ventilation and lots of fresh air coming in in internal environments in hospitals, and it's not entirely clear how people catching it, but we almost certainly don't have full blown. E where we need

Gene-Altered Squid Could Be The Next Lab Rats
"Okay Nell. Greenfieldboyce last year, you visited the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts. Tell me about it. What was it like? So it's sort of beautiful location right there on the coast of Massachusetts and you go inside. In you know, they took me to this room full of kind of burgling aquariums everywhere and. All of our exotic animals, the guy giving me, the tour was Brett Grassy and his official title. There is manager of Cephalopod operations. It's amazing title. So we've got our beautiful flamboyant cuttlefish. We've got our straight PAJAMAS, squids. These ones are native to Australia. We've got our octopus church, which is the pygmy zebra octopus, their native to Nicaragua small octopus species that doesn't get much larger than table. A. Table Grape. Nice. Yes. So they're they're looking at all kinds of squid and octopus is to try to find ones that you are easy to take care of that reproduce. quickly, that are going to be good to be sort of like the next lab rat and their work involves everything from the very latest high tech kind of gene editing tools to just like a bucket of rocks sitting on the floor. Why rocks? Well, they use them to make like little habitats in the tanks but they also use them to way down some of the lids. So octopuses are notorious for being able to kind of escape out of their enclosures. I've heard of this in aquariums. Octopus have been known to climb out and wonder around. Yeah, they're clever. You know. So when I visited Bret told me, there were roughly around three thousand cephalopods under their care there. But honestly walking around and looking in the tanks, you can hardly see any because they like to hide in those rocks and you know other little things, little containers. Keepers put in their tanks at one point read opened up this one plastic container and reached into the water and pulled out this little like like terra cotta pot and inside was this California two spot octopus. She's right down in there. Because see her eyeball, fairly see her. Yeah, and so basically, this is a kind of a common Dan either they're gonNA find rocks or. Some sort of basically dark enclosure sometimes. So this was a female octopus sitting on her eggs, and while we were looking at her, she's sort of shot out some water at us. She's of trying to skirt some water here. She thinks that I'm going to give some food or she's just trying to say you know I'm sitting in here taking care of my eggs and You know come back another time so now. Now. If you had a podcast called nell spies and octopus I would listen to it will we would have a lot to talk about because cephalopods are pretty crazy i. mean they have these sophisticated brains, they can solve puzzles, they can change their skin color like an instant. They can re-grow arms, they travel using jet propulsion. I. Mean. Some people have said they are as close to aliens living on Earth as we've got. that. is so cool. Honestly, we do a whole episode just about cephalopods, but I WANNA go back to this research question about using them as model organisms. So why CEPHALOPODS in particular? Well. It's all those odd features that makes them interesting to biologists I. Mean, for example, I mentioned their brains, you know the they're clearly sophisticated problem solvers, but their brains just look completely different from our own like they showed me one in a glass vial that looked almost like a triangle shape and you know there's brains that look like doughnuts that wrap around the Esophagus, you know at the same time, we know that some of their brain chemistry. Chemistry has got to be somewhat similar to ours because there have been experiments at how octopuses react to the drug ecstasy. Right? It seems to make them like little more friendly and cuddly to. So you know it's it's just fascinating to look at these creatures that are on the one hand. So different and on the one hand similar and studying, them could help scientists see what's necessary and what's not for being able to perform you know amazing mental feats. Feats like the ones people can do, and apparently you know some cephalopods seem

Pelican start turning the city back toward the flyers in ways the grab hard core sports fans who I would say over the last 15 years. Maybe 20 years started moving away from the fliers a bit. And that phenomenon happened. I am certain it happened. There was a cachet that the Flyers had. And this is something that there are probably a lot of 20 and 25 year olds out there. They don't they don't know about. Maybe they've heard about, but they didn't experience it. Teenagers certainly did not. I mean, the fliers were extremely extremely prominent in Philadelphia. In the years I was growing up and my early adulthood and in the last year at 10 15 20 years They lost. I don't know what the phrase would be. They lost. Ah! Kind of some footing in town. And they've got a shot to grab, grab a lot of it back, and I'm rooting for them because I didn't like the separation that had happened in recent years. And I'm hoping the Flyers can Ah Henry, grab some of that mantles. You know, more prominent space in the Philadelphia sports culture. Yeah, I grew up with my both my father and my uncle.

The Big 10 will announce its conference on Ly schedule for this season in about 10 minutes. Brett McMurphy joining us on our Western hotline. Brett is a college football insider for Stadium network. Red. It's Howard and Jeremy. Good morning. Thanks for coming on our show today. Hey, Good morning, guys. Yeah, Yukon the first FBS schools shut it down. And yet they warn the American but they left last year to go into thinking it And basically, yeah, Their schedule was detonated with With cancellations and then they've obviously got a unique situation as faras travel in and out of Connecticut teams would have Tio Quarantine for two weeks or they would have to quarantine when returning from different states. So you know they they shut it down and You know, like you said, who picked 10 and marches on the announcer scheduling and 10 minutes But You know, The big news today is to see what the board of directors decide as Faras. The fall sports championships and they decided to cancel those or continue on are deceiving. But you've been around the sport for a long time. And it just seems like right now. Some of it is covert related. But some of it is the gradual change. You know, the name image likeness discussion A few years back was a Northwestern talked about unionizing how you know what kind of Major changes. Do you think the Pac 12 movement going on right now? What kind of major changes do you think we're going to see in the landscape of major college football? Um uh uh, I think you know, this year. I think teams and programs are just trying to get the season and somehow some way whether that's 10 games eight game six games, whatever it is. That's that's the priority. I think you know, in the next 2 to 3 years, I think you'll see that the power five leagues split from the group of five leagues. I don't know if they will be remain within the A or they'll create their own. Kind of Ah, division outside the but I think this is just, you know, Look, there was already a growing gap between the power five and the group flight. What the pandemic did in the financial implications of covert did is it? It accelerated that that gap and I mean it was his biggest the Grand Canyon before this season, and now it's it's splintered apart. So you know it's not. It's not realistic to think that schools and conferences Like the power five that receive anywhere from 35 to $50 million a year per school, Um, should compete with schools that Received for $5 million a year and media revenue. You can't you know, Look on any Saturday? Yeah. Group five team could go out and be the power Five teams. No doubt about it. I don't doubt that. There's no way to compete 365 days a year. With those schools when the when the resource is money is so lopsided.
Garmin reportedly paid millions to resolve its recent ransomware attack
"Garment Hack. Lawrence Abrams bleeping computer as we know, as always had a strong interest in ransomware. So I'm not surprised that his coverage of the Garmin ransomware attack was the most detailed of any I've seen nor that he's had access to some. Insiders who have reached out to provide him some extra tasty bits. Among. Other things an employee inside Garmon informed him that the initial ransom demand was for ten million dollars. Oh. Yeah. Holy Moly. Dead. Dead million dollars. Okay. We don't know what ransom was finally paid. But it seems more certain than ever. That Garmon did pay up Lawrence wrote. After a four day outage, Garmon suddenly announced that they were starting to restore services and it made us suspect that they paid the ransom to receive a decrypt her. then. Last Saturday. Lawrence posted today bleeping computer gained access to an execute, -able created by the garment it department to Decrypt a workstation and then install a variety of security software on the machine. Since wasted locker. That's the ransomware is an enterprise targeting ransomware with no known weaknesses in their encryption algorithm. Decrypt, her cannot be made for free. And remember that bleeping computer has has been sort of a focal point four. The less than well designed ransom. Where mistakes were found in the encryption which allowed for the creation of a no charge, dijk crypt door and those have been organized and are are and can be found through bleeping computer. So he said to obtain a working decryption key Garmon must have paid the ransom to the attackers and he said this is where he said is not known how much was paid, but as previously stated, an employee told bleeping computer that the original ransom demand was for ten million dollars. When extracted this restoration package? This is the one that they that they received. A copy of that had been prepared by garments it department. This. Restoration package includes various security software installers, a decryption key, a wasted locker decrypt door, and a script to run them all. When executed the restoration package, decrypt the computer and then preps the machine with security software. Garments stripped contains a time stamp of July Twenty Fifth Twenty Twenty, which indicates that the ransom was paid either on the twenty fourth or twenty fifth. Using the sample of wasted locker from the garment attack, that is the actual. The actual ransomware from the garment attack bleeping computer encrypted did a virtual machine. And tested the decrypt her to see if it would decrypt their files. He said in our test, the decrypt. Decrypt files. So Interesting was that the package received by bleeping computer included references to both the cyber security firm Ms Soft E.. M.. S., I S O. F T. R. M, m cysts, soft sorry. Emphasis soft, and the ransomware negotiations service cove wear. When bleeping computer subsequently reached out to cove where they were told that they do not comment on any ransomware incidents reported in the media. And similarly emphasise soft toll bleeping computer that they could not comment on any cases that they create decryption tools and are not involved in ransom payments. Brett callow a threat analyst at. Mc Soft said, I cannot comment on specific cases, but generally speaking emphasis soft has no involvement whatsoever in negotiating or transacting ransom payments. We simply create decryption tools. Okay. Now, that's interesting news. So it might seem odd for a reputable security firms such as m soft to to have anything to do with ransomware, but they have an interesting angle. As we know, the decryption side of the ransomware mess sometimes receives much less attention from the bad guys who need to create the decrypt her Dan, the encryption side. Consequently. The decrypt have tended historically to be buggy to crash or to for some reason, fail to fully undo the damage that they had originally done despite. Having, received a valid key. So that's where M soft comes in. They reverse engineer questionable ransomware decrypt. There's for which the decryption key is known. To create a more robust and reliable decrypt her for a victims systems. Emphasis soft ransomware recovery services, page states if the ransomware. If the ransom has been paid, but the attacker provided decrypt is slow or faulty. We can extract the decryption code and create a custom built solution that decrypt up to fifty percent faster with less risk of data damage or loss. So. This also explains why the decryption package garment finally used also contained legitimate security software. That extra security software along with improved decrypt, her may have been provided by emphasis soft or may have been. Put together by garments it. And of course, as we mentioned last week, now that evil corporate has been attributed as the creator of wasted locker and has been placed on the US sanctions list for using dry decks to cause more than one hundred, million dollars in financial damages. Paying this ransom could lead to hefty fines from the government. So do these sanctions sources familiar with cove where have told bleeping computer that the negotiation company has placed wasted locker on their own restricted list starting in early July and will not be handed handling negotiations for related attacks.

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out.

If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content.

But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.
Rocket League is Going Free to Play! (And to the Epic Games Store)
"Rocket League is finally going to play. I'm dreams. Is The eastwards minute? Pres anybody sports network. It's about time after songs was acquired by epic Games in May of two nineteen, it seemed like rock league was poised to move to the free to play model. That was so successful fortnight. But while rocky introduced a similar item shop, the game still cost twenty bucks. It's not a lot. Compared to traditional sixty dollar cost bowed most battle rows free to play. It still posed a hurdle. On Tuesday south six announced the game going purely free to play, and would also be adding and support a creator coats for rockabilly content creators, this huge game as well bring renewed interest as people played around. The game will pick up the sticks once again. Both the good also comes a move off steam, which may be good, too, but I'm sure. A lot of gamers are totally stoked about it. This is a long time coming, but free rock league will only be available on the epic game store while steam as a sentimental home for gamers had called Tissue Valve. Product is still a good thing especially if it means, titles are going free to play when they show up on epic for people who paid for the game. Game like me three times. They'll get every deal. See Up to the point of going to play. I was always happy to support the game and I'm glad the player base will shoot up soon. In other rocket League News, the sports scene has gone through a lot of flux. Major organs left, but then liquid joined in with a revamped structure today, energy also announced an interesting new move that as far as I know is a first of its kind in east, sports. Shopping the naming rights to the Rocket League team. Trying to find a brand sponsor, likely an automotive company, one of the best teams of the game, energy recently signed cloud nine star squishy muffins to replace four time champion Turbo. Pulsa and Archie is looking for a multi year deal in the six figures annually. That's according to energy. President Brett Lautenbach in an interview with Sport Business Journal's Adam Stern London boxes. Bray response has been positive as I mentioned.

The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Embracing Duality
"Hello, my friends welcome back to Daly Brett. I'm departure Chopra. Everything that exists somewhere in the world also exists. In us. That's applied this idea to our own life and try and make societies that caused embracing duality. Let's say the expedient of duality. You will need a pencil and a piece of paper. So sit down quietly now and think oh Boson. You find attractive. On the left side of the paper lists ten or more desirable qualities that this person possesses. Write them down. Don't allow your conscious mind to edit your thoughts. Be, completely honest. Why do you like this person? Is the bosom gained loving flexible. Drives, a nice car has nice house.

So on the right side of the paper listing on more undesirable qualities.

On the back of the paper. Do the same for the woods that you checked. Read. These six woods allowed. Do Yourself. And now recognize that you are all of these traits, all of these traits, the negative and positive. And when you do that, you actually very good about yourself.
Is This The NFL's #MeToo Moment?
"Can you give us a sense of the build up to the publication of this report? So there's been a lot of drama swirling around the Washington football team, but suddenly started to get all of these dots that you could start connecting. There's a lot going on within the front office. That really doesn't add up firings in retirement in July in the NFL. Rarely happening tonight. We're! And we're too high level personnel executives who were abruptly fired and Alex Santos in Richard. Man were fire. No reason was given as to why they were fired. Then today, longtime radio announcer for the Washington football club Larry Michael announcing his retirement, he spent sixteen years with the team, the man who had been there the radio voice, he abruptly retired without any sort of official comment from the team, and he started to hear this buzz rumors flying about a potential bombshell report on Washington's football team and owner Dan Snyder. This is absolutely taken over social media with speculation running rampant then by Thursday afternoon. The Washington Post dropped the story. There fifteen women who went on the record, alleging widespread sexual harassment within the Washington football organization that spanned just about Daniel Snyder entire time that he is owned the team, so these were women who works across the organization in marketing and ticketing and finance in there were also two female reporters, one who formerly covered the team for the Washington Times and Rianne and Walker our colleague from the athletic, who also went on the record to accuse one of the men who had? had been fired of sexual harassment as well. It was the sprawling account as you mentioned fifteen women accusing sexual harassment in Washington. Can you summarize some of those accusations? Yes, so it was a lot of the very classic cases of sexual harassment things from making lewd comments about women's bodies about their breasts about their rear ends about the the clothes they were wearing to very overt sexual comments, propositioning requests to go on dates, just a lot of overall inappropriate workplace behavior. Behavior from superiors directed at female employees, and it did not seem to be a secret. Some of these women who went on the record with the Washington, post talked about how the other people who worked in the organization knew about it. They talked about it amongst themselves. There were places in the building where women were advised not to go. Specifically, there was a stairwell that had basically transparent stairs and women were told. Do not go there because there were men who. Who would stand underneath that and look up? Their female colleagues skirts all of these things that are blatantly inappropriate and wrong and workplace environment, but had been persisting for more than a decade, all fifteen of these women went on the record, but one of the few who allowed her name to be published is a woman named Emily applegate. What was her experience like working inside the Washington Organization? It was miserable it really most people know times a comment on my appearin. Screaming at you for something that you, it's not your fault. And then somebody makes a comment to you about what you're wearing and it just snowballs from there. she cried at work regularly, she felt belittled, imagined us being called stupid on a daily basis, and then also almost in the same breath being hit on for your appearance. It's a miserable work experience. Experience to the point where she no longer wanted to work there anymore and no longer even wanted to work in sports, and we should note that Emily applegate's former boss Mitch Gershman who was the team CEO at the time both denied and said he didn't recall conversations referenced by Applegate, telling The Washington Post quote I can't comment on something I can't remember. But Lindsay what actions has the team taken in response to these accusations from emily applegate, and the many other women, well many of the men who were accused in this story, all ready been fired, and we're kind of fired in the process of the Washington Post. Reporting this story, the team can say that has taken measures to address this because some of these accusations date back to the early to mid two thousands, so some of these people no longer actually work with the team and then some of the people. People that had new allegations have immediately been fired or left the team. They've started their own investigation. They hired an attorney Beth Wilkinson. The name might sound familiar over the last several years. Wilkinson took part in notable cases involving Hillary. Clinton Brett Cavenaugh and Michael Flynn and she told us we can confirm that our firm was retained by the team to do an independent review of the team's culture policies and allegations of workplace, misconduct and Daniel. Snyder and his wife sent an internal email to everybody who works organization to. To apologize for the culture, the statement saying in part, the behavior described in yesterday's Washington Post. Article has no place in our franchise or society. The story has strengthened my commitment to setting a new culture and standard for our team, but without specific apologies to any of the employees into these women, and there have also not been any public apologies to the two female reporters who were not team employees. The team has not publicly addressed them as well

"Hype Peter Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Well, I mean you're the man when it comes to all this stuff Bobbio, so it's my pleasure to be on and. You know excited to chat with you and to be on the PODCAST I. Don't know fun demand. Tobin winning matches I'm not sure what what help I have help and play with matches. That's where you've carved your career, so I'm really excited to have you on an ever. Since was a Brett Mossy was on here. He was like you gotta get Peter on. You GotTa get Peter on, so it's taken probably thirty episodes all probably down to me because you said, get me on any time so I'm glad to finally have yawn like I, said it's a pleasure so. Hopefully I can I can say something that helps someone or that's worth listening to. I'm sure you can't so. Let's start first of all. Which Your College tennis success. How many years were you head? COACH USC I was a head coach at USC for seventeen years. I was the head coach in college. For thirty two years. I coached at long, beach state where I played Fresno State Pepper, nine and University of Southern California so all within California's sports. And so you know was was real honor to coach at all four of those universities. Was dateable stint up to be a fresno state when you were there. No, he was after he was after but I I know Dave. Yeah, I certainly I think. He played for Oh God man. Oh, A now, Fresno! No, he's at Fresno Fresno Yep. No He's black working for. Integrate call the lucky. Yeah, no, it's too lucky and you know I mean a little bit about me that you don't know is. My Dad was born and raised in Kevin County so I'm A. I'm very much Irish. Yeah, so That's an never been airland means crazy I was born in Rome mid late and I left her nose two weeks old, and I've never been back and I'm Irish are fifty percents I was there when I was very young. Know I've traveled the world, but I've never been to those two places. You probably meant to be at Rome with Steve. This year. And maybe still happen. We don't know so. We'll see what what the future holds. I really hope the tour can start up with Washington, and they can put this the correct safety protocols in place her, and really for the most part. Just get everyone back working because it's this huge industry. That supports lot of different people, and you know not only the players, but you know the TV crews in the tournament organizers and you know so many people involved in running the kind of tournaments they play. Definitely a lot of people are on the sidelines. Waiting for things to pick up with a wasn't a plan to touch on this subject in this interview which you would. What is your thoughts on term star embark on hold procedures that are in place, player team sizes, and what's happened in Croatia, wit Novak, and now the case in the states as well with Francis Ooh. What are your general thoughts on? I think you know this. A lot of sports are starting up I. Think it can be done if you put this correct safety procedures in place, you know I'm not gonNA comment on. On what happened, you know over in in Europe but I know Atlanta. They put a lot of safety precautions in place, but you know still. They learned a lot. We learned a lot from you know what happened in. Serbia and I think they've learned even more with Atlanta. I think the mistake they made in Atlanta was. They tested all the guys? Guys, but they didn't test them the day before so obviously. Francis did not get covid from the tournament because it happened on the first day, It just doesn't happen that quickly, so he had been tested i. think a week before, and so you know they just need to test I. Don't know if it's daily, but they should definitely test everyone. When they arrived to the tournament and but other than that. You Walk Away I. Mean I think it's A. It's actually a great lesson that someone had code and we'll see, but it appears. At this point, and maybe it's too early. Say that no one else got it also so. If no one else gets covid I think that's a victory that they had some in there that had it and it didn't spread. So again, it's probably too early to save for sure, but I know. Stephen Sam have been tested repeatedly since that day last Friday and again it's too early to say for sure, but so far they've they've tested negative, and so has everybody all the participants

"brett" Discussed on Carry The Fire Podcast
"I have a couple of questions from some of the patrons of the podcast. Adams said bad religion was my favorite band in high school and I always found hope hard truths and understanding and songs that most people at the church I attended. Was Seen as blasphemous, so thank you And he said for some reason. Your songs only maybe want to be more like Jesus unless like American Christians. which I resonate with because I grew up in a conservative Christian. House and I I talk about I. I've been thinking about the past couple of years. How much I think punk rock was? A very necessary kind of antidote to a lot of what I was. I don't even. Think is an antidote to a lot of the trappings of the religion that is in, but it was also almost like a solvent that I think was revealing. Something, anti imperialistic things that are were inherent in that movement from the beginning. The had been kind of Golob Dover by. Other things. But I was curious, did you? Like it during the course of Your career with van like. I'm sure you've had a lot of. Christians who hated you guys and the like I? Remember as a kid being like ban, they have a cross. It's crossed out. I don't know if I can. If I can listen to that and. The I don't know. What is? All right so. I found that that a lot of Christians like that religion, but but just as you're saying there, there's certain kinds of Christian. Kind of Christian. WHO WHO LOVES CHRIST MESSAGE? They're not. They're not these kind of like Christian nationalists. or The middle of the Road Christians were sort of it's more of a tribe, a tribe than a philosophy. You know yeah. And Yes, over the years we've. We've had a lot of great support and. you know fans at the music? Live snow that the know they love our band evenly. Also Jesus Christian. Quite, frankly I totally get that because. I don't personally. Think, Jehovah, Israel! So that tells you how feel about Jesus. I think it was I think it was a really I think was a spiritual genius in a a wise dude, you know. That's what I think. Maybe, he believed in Jehovah. Maybe he didn't. But I. And and I also don't believe in miracles right so but I do believe in telephone were stories can change over time so. I'll tell you what is weird to me. Well here's why it's not weird to that Christians like bad religion is that? You know anybody who's serious about is a seeker. There's religion isn't even interesting unless you have a thirst for truth right? Yeah, so, and that's what I am. You know And that's what Greg is also scientists are the best ones you know so. And so and longer songs in. That's what about you know the feeling? A lot of our songs is a feeling of yearning you know. and yearning to know something or your new to. Yearning to be part of something. Or yearning for meaning. And I think that's the human condition. In fact, that's why I love Christmas songs. They all have that feeling. And that's the that's one of the reasons was hard to explain to people why Bab did Christmas album, but that's the reason. Those songs sound like bad religion songs me. Like with. Like they have the feeling you just have to, you know. You just have to. Pretend. They're in French or something. You know they still connect you mankind. But whatever it is that exact words are saying. So That's interesting so I'm curious. What if you had to? Kind of describe your. metaphysically, what what do you think? is going on with everything. You're say I. Don't believe in Jehovah I like. The big. And doesn't have to be one nail down. Thing just kind of curious. Your thoughts right I think that existence is mystery. And I think life is a gift. and. That consciousness is the essential value. Of everything. You other words. I don't agree with a masochistic view of many humanists who say like Stephen Hawking's that we're just a chemical scum on the surface of an insignificant planet in the corner of an insignificant Galaxy. I call bullshit that. Because the universe might be vast. But if there's no consciousness in it. To me. It's worthless. What's the point of any of it if there's not a drop of? Of Consciousness, in the universe. To be awed by. Nothing right so. So. At the end of the day sort of my belief is this. I believe in objective reality. I believe that the only thing we can be sure of is consciousness itself. because. That's the one thing that that we can experience I short right. I'm conscious. Is Consciousness itself not even the object of consciousness right because. As far as I know, our brains are just the best. VR goggles ever invented by you know four million years of evolution right for billion years ago, Our is don't show us. What's out there for real? I mean they. They show us what we evolved to be able to see I'll give you. An example of. That weren't Izumi Right now, right? So look at your own is. Now look away, look back. Did! You see your eyes move. Right. You know. You can't see your eyes move. Not because you're eyes aren't seeing it. Your brain is blanking that out because that would make. That would make us. Unbalanced right. I mean we have. We've a blind spot. In the middle of our are seeing that are blamed for brain blends over. Anyway you know, what are these sort of evolutionary VR devices walking through the universe and I think that you know the the cash value of that. Is Consciousness itself you know, and and we're conscious. and. That itself? is as much of a miracle. It's as astounding a fact as the Big Bang. That consciousness could spring from matter. is in itself as as central mystery as the universe as matter. Springing from the vacuum. I believe that. I believe that to the extent that well anyway. Have you heard of a pen psych? ISM, yeah, I I. Don't go for Psych is however. I will say there's a great new book I read called. The.

Graham loudly loudly expressed his disappointment. Democrats even leveling this argument during Kavanagh's hearing here's part of what Senator Graham said what you WanNa do is destroy. This guy's has live. Hold this seat open and hope you win in twenty twenty. You've said that not me when you see soda. Marin Keagan telemit Lindsey set all voted for them I would never do to them. What you've done to this guy? That was Republican. Senator Lindsey Graham. Speaking during the confirmation hearings to to be clear Senator Graham referred to the Democrats holding the seat open that is indeed what the Republicans did when they refused to even consider the nomination of Justice Merrick garland waiting eating for the two thousand sixteen election which Donald Trump one which allowed them to get two justices on the Supreme Court. Just to be clear but eh Senator Graham. He said he broke with his party to vote for Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor definitely not conservative firebrands by any stretch but these days I don't know Oh a few see it this way but it seems like the process has become so completely blood sport partisan that those days might be over those days are almost certainly certainly over. And that's actually unfortunate if you look back. At for example at the bork nomination there were Six Republicans Republicans. Who voted against judge? Bork there were Actually I may have number wrong. There are a number of Republicans who voted against judge. Bork and there were a few Democrats who voted good for him. This kind of crossing party lines is almost impossible to understand. It's become increasingly limited as the judicial nominations. Wars wars have continued in actually just mirror the rest of our political wars and so with And I think that the decision to get rid of the filibuster judges has just exacerbated that certainly Mitch McConnell's moved to hold that seat open made. It made made Democrats so angry that they were not going to consider seriously voting for any Republican nominees and so the playing field when it came due to People like just as core such injustice. Cavanaugh was very very constrained. I want to go back and talk a little bit about the metoo movement and the evolution because I do want to quibble little bit With the emailer. I do think that Democrats have sometimes gotten ahead ahead of themselves and jumped the gun in terms of responding to allegations too quickly. You talk about how people should be given the benefit of the doubt when they come forward with these allegations. I agree with that but I also agree with the importance of going through due process. I thought it was unfortunate. That senator Al Franken Felt forced to resign before we could have an actual Senate ethics committee inquiry about what happened. But I also think that in this modern era and this is a good thing that conservative icons cons as well as liberal icons have fallen to these allegations and some people looked at the Christine Blasi Ford hearings and the outcome and really despaired about Out whether these allegations would be taken seriously. I have to say having lived through the Anita Hill Clarence Thomas hearings. Having seen the much worse treatment treatment of Anita Hill there the complete inability of some of the male senators on that then all male panel to understand the meaning and implications ends of sexual harassment. I think that we are limping. Howard's society and are continuing understanding of how to deal with these kinds? Let's have gender issues and gender politics let me zoom out a bit from the Brett Cavenaugh Story to talk about the Supreme Court and more broadly just neal gorsuch was on Fox and friends yesterday talking talking about whether he lets his political leanings affect his opinions. Here's part of what justice course have said. The fact of the matter is any good judge will look back and say I may not agree with this policy or I may not a- voted for that law but the People's representatives chose to make that long and my duty as the judge when I put on that robe is to put aside my personal preferences and to faithfully discharge my duty which is to uphold those laws to apply by the neutrally that was Supreme Court Justice Neal Gorsuch speaking yesterday on Fox and friends. I wonder how you see what he said. In terms of the philosophies that the justices apply lie today I think justice who are further to who are kind of in his political side might say it's not our job to execute the law as the People's representatives additives. Today see them. It's to apply the law as the Constitution was written as the founders. Saw It so I think there are two different strands of conservatism. That justices and other judges have to deal with one is the question of their partisan leanings and are they as has The chief justice said Famously in response to yet another President Trump tweet they are in Trump judges or Obama judges or Clinton Clinton judges or booths judges. They're just judges trying to do their jobs. So one question is partisanship and what role that plays in justices minds and the other question is conservative. Judicial Philosophy where liberal judicial philosophy in terms of methods of constitutional and statutory interpretation and what role that plays injustices minds and those are two different things but the reality is is that the I think justices do their best to try to put their partisan leanings and their personal preferences out of mind but we still come up with conservative results and liberal results. And and that is not a coincidence. And it's going to be really interesting to see this term among the many fascinating in monumental cases that the court has taken or three cases that involve president trump. And whether he's going to need to turn over his financial and tax records to congressional committees or to the Manhattan District Attorney. And how the that. I think justices in their heads try to do impartial justice. But it's funny how it all works out in a certain direction before we go. I wonder where this leaves you in terms of your thoughts in the Supreme Court in general I mean if I was Chest thumping campaigner for term limits in the Supreme Court. Brett cavenaugh would be exhibit a for this idea that we take these nominations so so seriously. If we don't get this person at this time right now it's going to ruin the future for our children and their children. It just feels a little bit like Jesus Christ Christ like he's is it really that big a deal. How do you reflect on all of this now in terms of the process itself It is really that big a deal. The process is seriously asleep. Flawed the stakes are so high. The court is so closely divided And it is not a complete solution but something that could seriously ameliorate the the high stakes of these. Nominations is to make them more regularized. So one president president isn't winning the lottery. President trump likes to say. I think I'm going to get five I certainly hope he will not but He's gotten to some presidents residents get zero President Obama got to throughout the course of his two terms if we had eighteen year. Term Limits. You for justices. ESTES is that would lower the temperature a little bit and lowering. The temperature would be very good thing worth noting by the way the Washington Post did ask the Democratic candidates whether they would support term term limits for Supreme Court Justices Andrew Yang said. Yes a number of candidates they'd be they'd be open to it. Michael Bennett Cory Booker Pete. Buddha Judge Leon Castro Tom Style and Elizabeth Those with Warren Amy Klobuchar and Marianne Williamson said no and the remainder of the candidates were kind of unclear or gave no response ruth.

"For him to let Brett go to Atlanta, as champion you Tiki rarely do you think you really knocked them out? I was at work. No. And that was one thing that bothered me with wrestling with shadows, because that's where they changed the story now either the story was not the first time a wrestling with shadows. Got it wrong. But the story has never been told that way. Now, let me tell you where this is off. And this footage is even out there on YouTube, when Brett goes into the office with Vince throws the punch, there was multiple people in that office including Shane, and that was one of his biggest problems with what Brett did. He's like, look, I understand how we handle things when, when there's a screw I understand that you and I were going to have a moment, but you hit me in front of my son. And I let you do it. I won't let you do to get that was a very real thing, Vince, the black guy, and there's even a camera on that when Brett comes out in the pink and black, and then, Vince and Shane comes out, and I think it was Pat Patterson in the room with them. And after go, rewatch when wrestling with shadows did it, it was Brett was getting ready to shower and Vince came in. It was just the two of them, so somewhere. Somebody got this off, which Scott hall picked up on Scott hall said the whole things will work are working. Look at these. Details at constantly change. Brett was in on it from the beginning at I don't I think Scott hall is wrong. Okay. This is Scott hall. This is what he is proclaimed. Right. That's my great claim to fame. I was independence at night. Don't really I went there. Yeah, Montreal's a student at the time in high school, and I know idea what was going on. And I saw him smash the TV monitors afterwards and do the WCW then I went home on the internet and read all about it. I wasn't a wasn't a smart back then. And that's another thing that Scott hall brought up was that WCW goes, look, I'm just telling you in the heat of the moment that tired, and that fatigue and everything going, you would not think to look turn. No. Where the camera was and do that. He goes Brett was in on, I don't agree with him. I do not think it was. Right. I'm sharing the story, though. And since this whole thing is a bit conspiracy. It's fun to look at it from all angles. And that Scott hall's, I, I have no idea, how even got on this topic if I'm being honest, but I'm enjoying it thoroughly. Did you watch AWOL because you just informed me that I don't have a contract with mind spending. That's what happened. Did you watch w? Yeah. I did watch it really. I tuned in just after the battle royale, which heard opened the show and ordered it garbage. Yeah. Wow. What did you think? Very good. I also like you know, that's a star driven business much like Vince is doing with the Saudis right now where he's just gotta bring the biggest names. It was it seemed like everybody was a free agent in the world made an appearance of some regard one year which I that professional resident I considered doing that. When I was a sophomore college actually, went out to the WCW was called the power plant, which was a training out. Sars arch was there.

And then there's like one or two in the middle that then decide everything, you know, like the center like the, you know, the Susan Collins of the right of the Senate. Yeah. So basically, Anthony Kennedy was the single person keeping Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to Jews as law, basically, he's gone. Of course.
