Dr. Birx says coronavirus is "extraordinarily widespread" in rural areas
"Into a new month, and Dr Deborah Birks of the White House Corona Virus Task Force warns that were also in a new phase of the pandemic. What we're seeing today is different for March and April. It is extraordinarily rides spread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas and to everybody who lives in a rural area. You are not immune or protected from this virus. Works told CNN that no matter where people live, they should wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Today, President Trump called her pathetic in a tweet. Joining us now is NPR's Eric Whitney, who's keeping an eye on the latest news about covert 19 around the country. Hi, Eric. Hello, Jeremy. We just heard. Dr Burkes mentioned the spread in rural areas give us more details about where we're seeing spikes in rural parts of this country, So I'm based in Montana. It's a mostly rural state and like a lot of rural states, we've had very low numbers until about June. And since then we're seeing our overall case can't grow exponentially. Following rollbacks on restrictions on businesses and visitors. Last week, we saw a construction site at a mountain resort here blow up with more than 100 positive cases. I know there's a people in tourist towns were really concerned about all the out of state plates. They're seeing across many states, their frontline workers they're concerned about being exposed to the virus. Reporter in Tennessee tells me the outbreak there has now moved beyond Nashville and Memphis and become widespread across much of the state. And I think that's also the case in a lot of southern states with high infection rates like Mississippi and Alabama. Still pretty Communist e big spikes in rural places with big meatpacking plants or other agricultural operations where people worked closely together. Jails and prisons are often located in rural areas, and we're seeing spikes there, too, when you mentioned some of the states that are in the south. In fact, six of the top seven states in terms of the new cases are in the south. The other Being California are things starting to level off at all in those states that have seen spikes in recent weeks well, California's daily case count has dropped from a peak on July 25th of more than 10,000 new cases today. About 6400 yesterday. You know that's good news. But it is far from assured that trend will continue in 6400 cases a day is still huge that Khun spawned a lot of new spread. No, Arizona has seen a more sustained drop recently, the state's weekly average of new cases. Has been going down since early July. But health officials in Arizona and even that state's conservative governor Doug Ducey, are not saying that they're out of the woods yet Governor dues He paused his previous plans to continue broad reopening. Hospitals in Arizona have been strained. That's eased a little bit, but it's not over yet. And then, if you look a test positivity rates in many Southern states like Florida and South Carolina, there's they're often in the double digits. Mississippi's test positive the rate is over 20%. Georges is more than 12% in public health officials say that anything over a 5% positivity rate is concerning, so I don't think we can say that things were leveling off in Southern states.

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. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. 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. When I say utopia what comes to mind. Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the perfect social body. Every Body Matt Place. Everybody happy now while the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds. Pretty good. Right. Then why can't we make it happen?

If a Utopian world is as perfect as it seems watch brave new world now streaming only on peacock. These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. 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. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. 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.

"Hello welcome to all about android episode, four, hundred, eighty, two, it on Tuesday July. Twenty, first twenty twenty, where your weekly source latest news hardware and APPS for the faithful I'm now. And Ron Richards. And Florence Ion. Hello, hello, three of you joined. With a fourth, actually, we have a fourth person. The Brady box squares joining us today. Return guests to the show. We've now had you on enough time, so we can say you're definitely friend of the show Dave Berg who was the VP of engineering for Google for android. APP. How you doing Dave? Thank you. L. Community back I'm, excited to be here. Absolutely we're always excited to get you on, and we feel like we've kind of like struck gold when we can have needle that works on the ANDROID team on the show, especially this close to the launch of the next big version of android. Of course, android eleven were deep in the in the waters of the Beta right now. I've been running it on my Pixel xl. Flow riding. I'm I have not installed it online, but I'm living vicariously through flow and. Flow and Jason Dave. What is the most exciting point new role out is when the Beta on for the first time you get those first early reviews, or when it's finally rolled out as the final release. The final release all already anticlimax, everything's working, and so we're not too worried about a Beta, the first. Not The first of all reviewed with the first data is the one that I most nervous, because that's when all of the things that meeting working on SORTA. Come together, the narrative comes together and subways loader at that point to make sure we actually added something that makes sense. PASA. Just good, but we all. Right for sure I mean when you're doing a public Beta. You're doing that I beta. It's really kind of a symbol from Google to say hey, we feel confident enough in this. That is not going to totally wreck your phone. You know through some weird random occurrence that happens. It's going to be pretty safe. It's going to be relatively stable. Nothing's perfect of course, but it would be. It would be kind of difficult to release that and realize Oh. Wait a minute. We actually did miss that thing and it's. It's turning your device too much, so let's reverse that so I. Imagine there's lot of nervousness around. Yeah exactly do we always going to be tested? We call it. A lot of Kugler will use the bills early on, but it's never the same as going broadly in others can wifi access points me out and seeing devices. We haven't seen the Turks are absent installed himself getting up. Water Reaches Sube reporting for US getting the feedback from the community is just as critical to to make it all work together. For sure and you've had a little bit of uncertainty obviously everybody has had some uncertainty with this work from home. A little bit might be the wrong choice of words there, but it's kind of played. A had an effect on the schedule a little bit as well. How has that like? How has that been? You had an idea for the roadmap through. Developer previews and into Beta and then he kind of had extended a little bit. Why why the extension and how? How was it navigating through that? Yeah question I think. The biggest challenge isn't the length of time working from worse at the transition from work in the office, working from home, and so you know I think as we all know. It was quite a quite are quite. Our world turned upside down routines. Mess up and it'll be. We're getting up at home to work from home as RB. A lot of work to do on our tooling so that you could use for example, high-powered desktops are on your desk in the office. devices debugging at home, and like making sure plumbing rolls out works remote add and things like that and so. There was kind of a point or lost productivity really over few weeks to get back up, we actually tracking our internal. Sales so changeless Alec the flow of changes are going through. The team probably dropped him at seven eight percent I would say in the work from home shifts. And so that you know that kind of added up And, so we decided schedule back a couple of weeks. I'm actually rivalry keeps going like I I mean I think actually I mean. Everybody TAP to this this. We're all working your own but it was nice. Especially see my team to make out.

World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive. Thinking this is good, but is this good? I'm not important enough to risk bringing this to my boss. The blacklist was a way of saying you were right. It was good and here is a number. Instead of just your instincts fourteen votes, only living boy in New, York, by Allan, Loeb Charlie Wilson's war by earned Sorkin, Fan Burke and by the way a big deal in two thousand five. This wasn't just about finding undiscovered writers. It was any script that was great and not made. In a script called peacock by riders named Michael Lender and Ryan Roy the top ten of the very first blacklist thubten of the very first blacklist. Point the blacklist was just a spreadsheet that only Franklin could see, and he's about to send it back to all those other junior executives who contributed and he looks at it for a moment all of this normally off the record insider Hollywood Intel now written in a single place. He takes a deep breath. And he hit send. And then he packs up and heads off for vacation in Mexico and about a weekend vacation I went to the hotel of business center to check my email on like the public computer. And this lists have been forwarded back to me several dozen times. and everyone's like Oh my word of this team. Come from a lot of descriptions of sister. Good. Where where did this come from? What's your? What's your thought? It was terrifying. My thought is is that my career in Hollywood has a clock on it and the doomsday clock has just sped up. This anonymous list of the best unmade screenplays was blowing up. It had gone way beyond the small circle. It was initially sent to it even ended up covered the industry press, and so Franklin kept his down. He stayed anonymous and one day. He gets this call from an agent. Saying that his client has written this amazing script. It's perfect for Leo. It's like the usual call, except then the agent says hey. Don't tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that this ripped is going to be the number one script on next year's blacklist. I immediately thought to myself. That's interesting because I made the blacklist and I'm not making another one because I. DON'T WANNA get run out of town on rails. But I'm fascinated that you think that the speculative notion of your client scripting on the list is a sales tool for you. That must mean that this list that I created has

Hospitals Struggle to Contain Covid-19 Spread Inside Their Walls
"As the coronavirus continues its spread throughout the country, some hospitals are also struggling to contain the spread inside its walls. Well. It's only a small number of overall cases US medical centers have reported over five thousand cases of patients, catching coronavirus after being admitted there for other conditions, and that number does not include the case of medical staff that have caught the virus at work. Melanie Evans Hospital reporter at the Wall Street. Journal joins us for more on how hospitals try to protect both staff and patients from infection. Thanks for joining US Melanie. Thanks for having me wanted to talk about an interesting facet of this whole corona virus thing and how it plays out in hospitals. Obviously, people are going to hospitals to get the treatment they need. Sometimes they're spending long stays there and the hospital staff. Obviously, has to work with. With them. They have to work with regular patients as well. It can be a very difficult thing and right now. We're seeing that US. Medical centers have reported over five thousand cases of patients that caught cove in nineteen after being admitted to the hospital for other conditions I think that's that was just patients, but there's also a lot of a hospital staffers that are also catching it there from work as well. Melanie a little bit more about, please. Hospitals even outside of a pandemic. Go to some pretty extraordinary lengths to prevent infections from spreading inside the hospital itself. So you've got doctors nurses taking care of patients. Some of them have a contagious disease. You can think of measles you could think of to burke yellow says and so hospitals have all of these various strategies for trying to ensure that contagious patients don't infect hospital workers, and that the disease whatever it may be doesn't spread, and you don't get a outbreak. Hospitals began to try to adapt the way they operate in order to prevent the virus from spreading internally. What we found was that there was a pretty inconsistent approach across hospitals as the pandemic hit the United States, and so as you as you noted, hospitals are starting to report what they consider to be hospital onset cases so patients who've been exposed and contracted or respected to have contracted covid nineteen while inside of the hospital. There isn't good data for exposure of hospital staff. and. It's interesting I mean one of the things that kind of hinders. This is the reporting structure that they use to be certain that an infection occurred in a hospital. You know the federal government doesn't ask them to report everything. It's Somebody's gotta be there for at least two weeks and catch the virus there before the reported has an infection. You got there at the hospital, so there's a possibility of a bunch of other people that could have gotten it before that to expand their one of the hospitals that you. You focused on for your piece was the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago as you were mentioning? Hospitals are trying to prevent the spread of this thing as much as they could, but even still it got through, and by mid June more than two hundred sixty nurses, clerical staff custodians texts had contracted the virus there four staff members died, so even still it's it's just tough to contain all this. The Standard, the threshold for reporting a case of a patient contracting covid nineteen inside the hospital is pretty high. It's also voluntary. So for those reasons, the infectious disease experts we talked to said the number is likely higher, so we've got about five thousand cases since May fourteen that excludes anything that occurred prior to that since May. Fourteenth there have been roughly. Five thousand cases reported voluntarily by hospitals that met as very high threshold, and to your point we looked at one specific hospital that struggled with these protocols for keeping patients and staff separate, and when we interviewed staff and the head of infection control. What we were told was. It is likely that the virus spread internally that they were investigating, but they declined to share with us. The results of their investigation, citing privacy for employees have died Joyce Hacker Bus Leblanc. She's fifty three year old nurse, Juan Martinez and. Room technician who worked on the third floor, Maria Lopez a nurse, who on the third, floor operating unit. And then FLA botanist Edward Starling. He's sixty years old and he died on June seventeenth. You know speaking to what you're saying about. Some of these protocols they isolate infected patients. The buildings are engineered to help reduce the viral spread. A lot of people talk about these negative pressure rooms, which kind of sucked the air out so the virus staying there, but then there's other research that shows that there's been a particles of the virus kind of hallways outside of those rooms, so it's a very difficult thing to. To contain and be clear these numbers that we're talking about these over five thousand cases, these are a very small fraction of the overall number of cases, but you know it's hard to for a lot of people to feel comfortable there. If certain things like these are happening you know, it just complicates everything. contact tracing is difficult in the hospitals especially at the University of Illinois Hospital that we're talking about at one point, there were so many people are getting sick and was the contact tracing their. They continue to work to boost their infection control practices. As we reported this story, we talked to hospitals across the United States over several weeks and the course of that reporting. hustles described the ways enrich their protocols, and their efforts were changing so early in the pandemic testing was limited. There was no requirement that everybody wear a mask. Now taking is more widespread and hospitals have policies that require universal masking patients and staff are being asked to wear masts to help slow the spread of the virus hospitals in the course of the pandemic raced to reengineer their ventilation systems and add negative pressure rooms, so yes, it is sort of involving response by US hospitals in order to try to contain any possible outbreaks. Hopefully as we continue to get through this, the hospitals can learn to manage it as best they

"Playoff bubble. I wrote about changing the playoff format this week. Interviewed a bunch of people about it expanding it to play in games. Maybe fiddling around with the current format to go from the divisions back to the conferences or even a one through sixteen format which Seth Jones seems to like the thing. I discovered emily which I thought was weird. How many people don't want the playoffs expanded a lot of fans just straight up angry about the idea that when we reach thirty two teams that maybe more than than sixteen to get in which to me is nuts? I know that I'm an old. I know that I remember like nine thousand nine hundred ninety when we're putting like sixteen at twenty one teams into the playoffs but the idea that it's somehow an affront to all things competitive in an equitable to try to put in more than half the league into the playoffs. I mean apparently so for van even though I think it'd be fun now it's an interesting conversation. Yeah as you mentioned what is interesting is that the NHL as it expands. Its you know league.

"burke" Discussed on ESPN On Ice with Wyshynski and Kaplan Show
"We have between George defunct Intel. Ray Whitney Damian Etcheverry etta and myself has the senior staff. I think we have a really good group of really good balance and a nice mix. That's doing a good job keeping the game face possible Patrick. You mentioned you. Guys are no strangers to criticism. You hear it all the time but there are some pretty high profile Critiques headed your way about a month ago from a vendor Kane who I will note is a repeat offender but he called out the apartment of player safety for our quote a completely flawed system. He said from those suspensions to the appeal rights. It's baffling to me. How we as players agreed to this. He essentially called for an independent third party to make these decisions to quote for. Move that bias. That transpires in this department headed by George Soros. So when you the rest of the senior staff you hear him say this. He put it out on twitter. What's going through your mind Not all that much to be honest I I think that you know we certainly saw we read it we talked about it but I don't think that you know. We saw anything more than a frustrated player. Who's on a team? That's having a frustrating season and and is looking to to lash out of it but I think there's You know the the sharks are not having the season. They anticipated I wonder if evanger salvage season. He was hoping for and he's frustrated. And that's that's understandable so A bit of that got directed at US but There's been no strong feedback from anyone that we talked to force substantial amount of change George talks regularly with Gm's the NHLPA and with players to get feedback. You know a couple of years ago. We did a team tour where we visited every. Nhl Team George Met with all thirty one teams and gave him the chance to ask questions. Raised complaints Left an anonymous survey To try and figure out if there were things that guys wanted to be done differently and the response from GM's from the NFL PA from those players is that that things are good. That's While we while we may come under fire for individual decisions The process itself is good Everyone seems happy with Over all the decisions we're making and you know when someone gets suspended. They're not going to be happy their team's not going to be happy but they're you know evanger put those comments out there and then it kind of went away. There wasn't a groundswell of support. There weren't a flood of players calling the NHL or calling their general managers to agree with them. And say you know we gotta use this and fix it it just Kinda went away so we saw it for what it was which is a frustrated player. upset with the decision wanting to vent and we all just move on with our lives. Did you guys reach out to a vendor at all? Because there's clearly a disconnect of what he believes you guys do and what your actual processes did you try to clear the at all I don't know if George stood out to the fact that I know he ended vander. Talked a couple of different times this year. about The legality of plays the way that vander plays and trying to help him understand what to do to avoid being suspended and this was before is suspension. So one of the things are department tries to do is to be proactive. And if we see players who are playing on the edge or Hitting a certain way or getting close to to supplemental discipline a lot of times. We'll have someone from the department. Call Him and just say hey. Here's what we're seeing a lot of recently. Just be aware that you know you haven't crossed the line yet but if that happens You might be hearing from us. So it's a courtesy to the players to to try and educate them On what they might be doing I know George said that the vendor earlier this year And gave him the time to reach out and talk about styles of hitting and and how to safely avoid Hitting a player in the head. I don't know I don't believe that George reached out since then But I know he has talked to Shark Staff Doug Wilson and other people in the organization sent to to discuss it and I think everyone's happy with With where it's landed. Some people are curious how you folks determine the punishments for some of these incidents and in particular what what goes into the call to make something a fine rather than a suspension on the degree of what we're seeing To to the honest I mean the the things that we look at on every player. First and foremost was rule broken You know we see a lot of hits that we might not like Maybe they're unnecessary. Plays or maybe they're kinda scummy plays And we might not like them. We might say Fred to use an easy example if you throw a big hit at nineteen fifty nine of a period. There's no need to throw that an unnecessary cats. There's a second last in the periods but there's no rule against the clock goes to pointing minutes for for a reason. You believe that a lot with one second left. And what's that? You play to the whistle exactly so we see that a lot with one second left in the game somebody drills a guy in the corner and everyone's mad and we're looking at that you know those are ones that former players Ray in Georgia and Q. Or looking at going like. Why are you gotTa do that? Just leave the guy alone. You don't have to do that but no rule was broken. So first and foremost on all these places. We have to figure out what the rule broken. Then we're looking at things like You know I I would say forced is probably the most important thing And I think that's where a lot of times there's confusion around our decisions because people are looking at two plays and they're going. Oh you know. This was a an elbow to the face. And this was an elbow to the face and was A fine one was a suspension. And it's very hard to quantify. We think this guy hit him. Five thousand dollars worth of hard and this other guy hit him one game worth of hard. But that's kind of what we're doing on a lot of these is the the forest here Is Different between the two We look at things like the intent on a play We talk a lot in our. Did he does about a hockey player versus a non hockey play. Or are you going in trying to throw illegal body? Check to separate the guy from the puck or are you doing something completely unnecessary after the using your stick in a way that Uh is just completely unnecessary. Is on an unsuspecting employer Someone who's not prepared for the contact that type of thing Those are all things that we'll look at once we've established that role is broken so You know the the fine limit is something that we're not always Happy about I know. Fans see that a lot where Player crosschecks somebody up high and gets a two thousand dollar fine and we see tweets like. Oh that's in his couch cushions or You know everyone's confused by sixteen cents tacked onto the end of a fine for a player So to clarify that briefly we are allowed to find players up to one half of one day's pay up to five thousand dollars out of hearing enough to ten thousand dollars if we have it here so for a lot of players in the league the maximum. We're allowed to find them. Isn't that two or three thousand dollar range that's a? Cbs negotiated Limit the that were Capped by so there are times when we think play doesn't quite a one game suspension. So we do want to do something. So we know that a two thousand dollar fine might not be the most punitive saying we can do but it gets the player on the record. He's informed that he's not supposed to do that We can track The players are doing those types of plays and it's what we're limited by by the CBS. Patrick something else. That falls into your purview is the NHL skills at all star. And I think one thing our listeners don't know as you were instrumental in getting Kendall Coyne Scofield to do the fastest lap which obviously was conic moment but I want to know about the regular skills. What is the hardest skill to convince players to want to participate in? And what is the easiest one when you've got to convince them like? Hey you got to do something like this is the scale you should do it. All Star all right well a slightly more fun topic than the supplemental discipline. So this'll be nice. W- balancing the anger. I care and then we're going to swing it back at the end and hit me with something hard once I once I heard the show Yeah so along with Steve Mayor. Who's the chief content officer for the NHL? And you know. A whole team of people obviously The two of US Kind of spearhead. The skills competition The easiest skill to get a player to participate and is anything that doesn't involve much movement This year even though there were some nerves with it being a new event. A Lotta guys wanted to do shooting stars There was a lot of Demands To be in something that involves taking your skates off being in jeans and just shooting pucks without having to move conversely the hardest one skater I will say the last couple of years. We've had a great group. There are some young guys who come into the League who were so excited to do. Fastest Skater members would do fastest skater. Every day of the week if we allowed it You know when he made his first all star game their PR guy called and he'll do everything and he wants to win. Fast Skater and I was like great. Love Matt Bars L. Great Attitude So there's been some young guys who come in Italy who are enjoying it more but generally because that's the only one where you get winded That has been the least popular. One to get guys participated. What's Your Whitewell? What's your one player that you'd love to cast in skill competition but he's always said now I mean I wouldn't say players have said no the one thing that we talk about Internally a lot is whether we should just be bringing the fastest skaters to all star and the hardest shooters to all star and actually do a a league wide test. You know charro verse Weber. Verse Perico Verse Pullach on a few guys in there Martin Burke For Heart Shot.

She wouldn't mind one more thing however a sip of something with a kick to keep her warm to her surprise she soon received an offer of just that a pair of Irishmen freshman approached her on the street and invited her to have a drink with them.

Sadly Abigail night wasn't going as well as she thought it was her two companions were William Burke and William Hair Body snatchers who made a living selling corpses to surgeons and due to a shortage of available cadavers. They'd decided that Abigail would have to fill their current demand. Burke and Hare were Irish immigrants. Who met around around eighteen twenty while working as laborers on the Scottish Union Canal? Burke was a military veteran who recently abandoned his wife and two children Aldrin. Hair was a hard partier and Schemer always looking for his next con. After the canal project ended the men went their separate ways but they were reunited in eighteen twenty seven when burke and his New Lady Helen McDougal took rooms in Edinburgh Edinburgh Lodging House. Run by hair. And his partner Margaret Laird according to historians Nigel Cawthorn and Charlotte Grieg. The two couples weren't so much friends as drinking buddies. They shared a common love of Whiskey and perpetual lack of money. This this might have been the some of their relationship if it weren't for a tragedy that took place inside their home in November of eighteen. Twenty seven a border in the lodging house passed away while still owing four pounds in back rent about four four hundred dollars today. Hair and Margaret had no way of collecting the debt. But Harry came up with another way to get their money. The Irishman Richman knew there was a thriving black market trade in corpses among doctors who were desperate for bodies to practice surgery by British law. Aw Surgeons could only by the remains of executed criminals but there simply weren't enough to meet the demand behind closed doors. Some would take any corpse. They could get their hands on with that thought in mind hair enlisted the help of his drinking buddy burke to put the the dead lodgers body into a sack in the middle of the night they carried it to number ten surgeon square. The address of an anatomy school run by Dr Robert Knox Word on the street was that knocks needed bodies for his lectures and hair was sure he'd take one off their hands. He was right three assistance Matt Burke and Hare at the door they paid about seven pounds for the body three pounds under the market rate even so the two men went back to the lodging house. Feeling it was the easiest money they'd ever made made they have their back rent and then some a few weeks later. Bergen hair had a second chance to make some fast coin. Join when a border of the lodging house got sick. Although the renter wasn't technically dead he was close enough. That Burke and Hare are felt justified finishing the job the two men suffocated the lodger and carried his body to Dr Knox's doorstep or step once again the physician's assistants asked no questions. Unfortunately the money paid burke and Hare didn't last last long. They needed more bodies in the early months of eighteen. Twenty eight hair came up with a plan. They didn't have to wait for someone to get sick or die. All they needed was a person. No one would miss on February eleventh eighteen. Twenty twenty eight though. The exact date is questionable. An elderly homeless woman named Abigail Simpson passed by the lodging house after collecting her pension. Bergen hair invited her in for a drink and the three traded shots of whisky until they passed out the next morning. Burke and Hare realized they'd missed their opportunity to carry out their plan but they soon saw they'd have another chance. Abigail showed no sign of wanting to leave on the contrary she immediately started drinking again. This time the men stayed sober and once they felt their guest was sufficiently inebriated. They held her down and smothered her to death. The US for the first time burke and hare killed a healthy person in cold blood and they were about vowed to be rewarded coming up. We'll see how murder became a booming business now now back to the story on or around February eleven eighteen twenty eight. William Burke and William Hair lured elderly elderly homeless woman Abigail Simpson to her death in hopes of selling her body to science that night. The two ferried their catch back. Act Number ten surgeon square for the first time they were greeted by Dr Knocks himself. The famous anatomist gave Burke and hare full price for the corpse. Ten pounds worth about eleven hundred dollars today. He also indicated he'd be happy to do business with them again from that point on murder became the two men's bread and butter. They were assisted in their crimes by Margaret layered hairs partner who owned the Lodging House and sometimes recruited victims the three split. The profits profits from each body. Hair got five pounds as the brains of the operation. Burke got four as the muscle and Margaret got one on as a token of the men's appreciation. It was a sizable amount of money. For All of them and as business boomed their actions grew increasingly singley brazen one night burke talked some police officers into releasing and inebriated woman to him instead of arresting her he delivered delivered her dead body to Dr Knox a few hours later another time. The men murdered an aging sex worker. When the woman's daughter came looking for her hair and burke disposed of her to buy Halloween night of eighteen twenty eight Herron Burke had killed killed fifteen people not that they were counting anything but their profits and they remained ready for any new business opportunities tinnitus so when an Irish woman crossed their path the two Irishmen claimed that they had a common relation and lured her into the House House? They killed their victim that very night but perhaps due to the fact that it was Halloween and there were more people out than usual. They didn't take the body to Knox right away instead. They hid it inside the boarding house. Where much to their chagrin? A lodger discovered it. The next day the horrified renter ran for the police hair. And Burke perhaps operating sitting on the theory that nobody means no case hustled the corpse over to Dr Knox they then returned slightly richer to an apparently absolutely innocent house. What the two men failed to consider was that moving? A body didn't make go away the next morning. Police Lee centered number ten surgeon square and found the corpse which the lodger identified. They arrested burke hair Margaret and burks romantic partner. Helen in connection with the alleged crime. Lack of evidence soon led to Helen's release but there was sufficient officiant proof for investigators to hold the other three once again hair. Came up with a resourceful idea. He offered to testify about the crimes crimes. In exchange for total immunity authorities agreed William Hair proceeded to tell them all about the murders. And though we don't know exactly what he said it resulted in both his and Margaret's release after gaining their freedom in February eighteen. Twenty twenty nine. The couple broke up going their separate ways. They were never heard from publicly again. burks fate on the other hand was legendary after his former partner testified against him. Burke was sentenced to death by public hanging and on on January twenty eighth eighteen twenty nine. The judgment was carried out before a crowd as large as twenty five thousand and people. Later that day William burks body was delivered to the University of Edinburgh School of Medicine it was dissect did by judicial decree before a public audience. Then burke skin was removed and fashioned into to the cover of a pocket book it remains on display in the surgeons hall museum in Edinburgh to This Day. A grim reminder to those is looking to get rich off of other people's bodies.

"Oh and he never really offered a satisfactory answer and I don't know that he even knows I mean at one point I asked him. He's like you know curiosity stupidity and I. I think that was the most interesting thing. Here's like why do you do it. And you know one thing that started to dawn on me as you really get into. This is just like okay. You're Jeff David you're the chief Revenue Officer of the Sacramento Kings. You make your exactly where I'm going. You make three hundred sixty thousand dollars a year plus bonuses by any standard that is you're you're butting up against the one percents might be there. So here's here's what I thought as a writer was very interesting You have all this information. You have a million ways to organize a story of a million ways to end it there were. It was organized a million different ways along the way by the way. Here's how you end it. I'm going to read how you ended because it doesn't really give anything away people. Read the story you you have the scene. You described the the most exclusive lounge at the golden one center. Where the bigwigs you know? Meet to watch the game or mingle and So David was a fixture on the event level to and even though he was earning three hundred sixty thousand per year plus bonuses. Just about everyone in here made more than he needed. Jeff David was awash wealth. Yet in this rarified air he was the pauper end of story. How did you settle on that? How many other other things ways that you end the story or did you always know you wanted to end it there and is that you essentially pitching the theory? That's why he did it. He felt that he was outclassed. Even though he was making can so much money in his day to day job Gideon motivation was so important. For All the editors and for me to write in and we don't really know for sure and we don't know exactly Ackley why he did it. I mean I think there was a part of him that want some action of his own. You know you work for a company you put together one hundred twenty million dollar deal. It's not your deal it's it's Vivek Steel. It's it's the the partners the kings deal so I think there was a part of him. They wanted his own action. I think there is part of him. That you know is crazy as it sounds. You know You know his his wife who've just among the more you know just really pleasant person I'm I didn't grow up with with great means. I think there was always a sense that he wanted to provide. He wanted into the they worried a lot about money. Even they were making good money in a until. I think there was a part of it. It was about that but I think to me I just kept coming back to the NBA. Even since you and I have been uncovering it like it's a different level of wealth. We've gone from you know the Miller family and the bus family and Herb Kohl to Hedge Fund guy and just obscene ABC's eight billion dollars of revenue. Even since you and I have been covering this game lake revenues on his is tripled. You know it's so much well. So here's this guy. He's doing the schmooze thing every single night at the game and who is he surrounded by an owner who's worth hundreds of millions minority owners who are worth in some cases hundreds of millions certainly even the the small fry minority owners are worth tens of millions right demarcus cousins and making an excess of twenty million a year. The the ninth tenth and Eleventh Man on the team is making probably ten times. What Jeff Davis making? There's a coach who is almost his exact age to the a year at that time. Making ten times what he makes the lobbyists from Sacramento down the street at the Capitol. Emi Sacramento's this weird sits you know. Phil Jackson calls it a cow town. The capital city of the fifth largest economy in the world. And you know you go into the exercise means big people are going to be there all the time all every day especially a new arena. So you've got these big Mucky muck lobbyists you've got these real estate developers in and just wonder and you know and that was to me what I kept coming back to is. Everyone else has more and do I know for certain that that was the that drove him. I don't think he felt deprived. Everybody's certainly was running in a world where there was just D- would he was essentially subsisting on in. His eyes was just so much less than everybody else. Did you know you want it to end the story that way almost from the beginning we sometimes we almost. We almost started the story with that scene. I love that scene. I just think there's you know it's funny. Is that a Gr because on one hand it's a we love as a kicker but it's also could have been really interesting interrupt. Jiafu McCann started right there. What's this this is world right I I like I it it? It caught me by surprise when I read it in a good way like. Oh that's how we decided the in the store but it it. It ended like a punch to the stomach. The word pauper hit me like Ooh. ooh That's really what it was. That's probably what he felt Who who were you? How hard was it to get the Kings to get stacy to talk not terribly hard? I mean I think I. I've done some work on the kings and yet I mean I think I I'd like to believe we'd have to ask them that. I established some trust over the years. I mean I've been rough rough on them. And I also wrote a piece about the real estate efforts which have been pretty successful in in Sacramento They run a pretty good Biz OPS situation there and But I think you know I think it was an organization. The felt like you know this guy had wronged them and and really hadn't been covered. I mean the other thing is it's gotten some it's gotten in on the stand the fact that he's done some work on it in some local news stuff but the really hasn't been it's Kinda gone it went undetected. I was kind of there. was that moment. Where is anyone else doing? There's no one else is doing this. And I kept pursuing it and thinking that you know. Perhaps there'd be a bunch of people in the story but but I got lucky in that respect and So she she was. I think everybody it was a little nervous and I and I think you know it's funny. We spend so much of our time talking to players coaches and exacts. It's nice talking to non famous novel it really. Is You know what I gotTa tell you. Looking looking for more stories I mean no disrespect to NBA players coaches executives conversation. I love talking to those people but you know. Can I make a request. Can I beg. Can I plead five minutes. This please you know and I started on the crime in court beat at a newspaper like these. These stories are everywhere. I mean maybe not to this magnitude in this kind of setting but like desert reserve. There's a reason why every show on television is about crime I mean these are human dramas with characters that are motivated by weird things and do crazy stuff and the stories are are gutting an interesting by so different than doing a a feature on basketball because I in some sports in crime or to really interesting laboratories for what we do is like an on our best days we get the human human motivation right. We get it What makes people tick and sports and competition is a great great place to examine that? And that's what we do most of the time but crime is an entirely different venue Where you get to examine that and that was so fun for me? What was is the conversation where you felt the most idol? Maybe you never felt uneasy or nervous or or either that or the conversation where you're having it and you're you're like this is. This is the one this is going to make the story. I don't know if there was a moment interview. 'cause sometimes when you're doing crime stories like as a reporter you get nervous like these are really uncomfortable conversations. I don't know was there one like that. I think talking to his in laws who are supportive. And just such fundamentally decent people I mean I this is just A. It's they are just a I mean. Truly I say a try to main object remain objective about this stuff but they were just. They are objectively actively decent people And kind of hearing the testimonials of what what the family went through and watching Jeff that night eight. They're here. They are moving into this gorgeous new house in Miami. I mean look what an upgrade in many respects I mean Sacramento Kings the Miami Heat. It's considered a gold standard organization and enlarge reflected in the fact that he's very well thought of in this space. Maybe WanNa you WANNA person to do sponsorship for your NBA Franchise Jeff Davidson aim. You call right and I mean this. This is the next chapter and their family's life the loss fly in to take care of the kids because moving into a new house is really hectic and their table guys in their movers. Coming in and out. And then it's just the most lovely family. Just Kleine Koppel in in kind of but listening to the them offer the testimonial of the family went through and just sort of hit his having to confront His wife who's just seems like an exceptionally pleasant person in just having to break it to them. This is all really a farce this Beachfront Real Estate Property Partnership. You thought you were just a part of his. Actually my own personal endeavor where I was funneling thirteen and a half million dollars have have you heard from the family or from him since the story was published. I have not while I thought maybe would I thought I maybe would to Have you kept in touch after them. Since he's gone to prison. No I have not I mean just. He reported a little less than three months ago. Did you interview the FBI agent. I believe you did right. Yeah I was able to interview the lead domestic. FBI investigator in the case. That's cool. Yeah that's that's that was my favorite conversation really. Why just because has its peak into this? Because it's it's so like He. I mean I think investigating white collar crimes with an FBI. Interesting job like he get such an interesting Just bird's eye view of the human condition. He find this case interesting or did he find deal at this kind of stuff all of a sudden you always funny. I mean. He wasn't dismissive or or or get sense. This is what he does right like like scams that we find just fascinating with novelty because by largely walk through life. And we don't really meet many of these people right. You know we just kind of hang out with who we hang out with and this guy's peers pierce but the people. He interacts with every single day. Our people people just ripping people off. What is the thing that got cut? That broke your heart to cut it if anything. Is there a detail as there are quotas. There's something that that so in a weird way. Because I'm a total Weirdo. So Stacey wigs in win. She was doing all this. I I really well. You know you. You Fall in love with characters even though they're real people but they're still characters in in a novel you're you're you're reading in loving and sustain and Alexa is just I think we don't cover a lot of people like Stacey right she is. She's a professional. She is in her forties and she is a working mom Tom and on the week that she's dove headfirst into this like staying up at her kitchen table. Three in the morning her dog Roxy was dying in the store I believe no roxy is not and so I'm joking because in the Weirdo world are writing features. There's always he's the one detailed frankly doesn't make or break the story but you get so attached to just because for whatever reason it it becomes this Avatar of something bigger and it was just like we had to cut the the piece was long in like the editor is needed to cut and they needed to cut Roxie and there was a partner. Couldn't get over cutting Roxie for two days because I'm because I'm a crazy person but also she was taking taking her daughter to college. There was the bed bath and beyond re runs and loading up the Ford expedition so But the Roxie thing for whatever reason I just got really attached to just because I think it was they were probably right to cut it because are really good editors and but it was a funny thing because I just got really attached to do it and it was just 'cause it was like no you have to either fully formed character..

Tom And I said to pop. I mean is there something here as just a guy lesson caught them he goes. I'm hoping he hasn't caught his rhythm and obviously add. But that's not the case Damara lamarcus or or basically providing What they were providing a season ago one thing? I was curious about nights I had the spurs last year and Damore had reverted. I don't remember I think he shot three shoot thirty two percent in his final year from three when when the Toronto Raptors obviously made him shoot him and it's it's very clear that that's really what happened. They forced him they forced him. They must have because I so then I get him last year and I had him early and then I had him a little bit later. Because I didn't ask the question the first time around about tomorrow not shooting threes but now once you get twenty twenty five games and I remember. We're going up to chip England in a Pre game nights. Can I ask a question. I said I was encouraged by Demar. You know three point shooting in in Toronto. Because I think he's capable like I mean the guy could score and asleep and all all players revert to what's comfortable but it looked to me like he was getting comfortable with the three in Toronto. And I'm like this is necessary. Sorry this is part of the evolution of your game and play today's NBA. But he stopped and I went up to chip England. I don't remember what time of year was I said. Can I ask a question. You guys encourage discourage have discussion. Don't have a discussion. And he was like we allow our players to play to their strengths and he goes to marsh comfortable there and so that that was my answer so I mean I'm not putting everything on tomorrow just as a broader-based observation I almost would have liked to have seen him to continue in that. I am because I don't I am listen. Here's here's what I know. They've survived in an atypical fashion in the last couple of years because of the strengths of their two superstars but they survived on the fundamental principles of. We're going to be very very competitive with great effort connected effort and we're not going to foul on the defensive end right and so then you finish the possession with the rebound and you go your other way and then you keep your turnovers low. And you know you're navigating some of your lack of shooting by doing those things and I always go back to this one comment jeff made to me. Jeff emit me said if you play very sound defense. Give up one contest tested shot finish a defensive possession the rebound and don't turn it over on the other end. I don't care what level of basketball you're talking about. You're going to give yourself a chance dance to win. I would be interested to ask Jeff the same question as we watch. The League tilt more and more toward what you're talking about the analytics analytics and the value of the three point shot and how how the Games played and I will ask him the next time I see him is that still the case interesting They did. They did play to the strengths of their stars and survive that way. Their offense is still top. Ten offense is not why there is not why they're they gave up one hundred thirty eight points to Washington team. Dave loss to WHO I've met down Atlanta Wa- they're listening to bad teams. Not like they had a soft spot in their schedule. Well what happens when they hit the rough patch. Well There they won less. You're primarily we'll have primarily with a dynamite bench. Their Bench Killed Triangle Britannicas gone try threat. Derek whyte. Something's just not happening with Derek. whyte now he's he's got he's got some sort of injury? I think a tow. Maybe I are healer Shin or something some leg part so so maybe start patty mills now the last night totally change your plan. Patty Mills and Brennan. May I like both guys tough. Gritty GonNa work their backside off on the defensive the vendor but if you're playing Patty Brand Dhamar on the defensive end of those shot and I think if you look at the indicators of their defense dare Fundamental indicators are healthy like Darrell allowing the right kinds of shots ironically. They're allowing the same kind of shots. They take off their rebounds rebounding free throws all this stuff we're talking about. They're still doing most of that. Teams are just shooting the hell out of it against him. So you're here. I have it somewhere. They are allowing doing sixty eight percent shooting at the rim. That's last. They are allowing thirty nine percent shooting on threes. That's twenty-seventh they are allowing forty forty four percent shooting on mid-range shots that's twenty fifth and I think it's just they're just a little small and soft. I don't mean soft often some sort of like you know like the way that people use soft to insult not in a non-competitor shooters drive into them or rise is up with traffic. And they're like. Oh I'm kind of unfettered like I'm not bothered by anything here. Aldridge looks to me. Like he's lost step defensively from even just last sure and and and derozen. I mean the for all the attention on a shot selection and it's ridiculous. He's taken four three shirts. Ridiculous that the Spurs of leads US happen. Defensively defensively is why. He's the defenses. Why he is not as good as his reputation if you just watch him close out on people or try try momentarily hung up on a screen? Yeah he continued to battle in and he gets blown by all the time. And there's been some communication mistakes that I think our uncharacteristic of the Spurs but they're losing because their defense stinks and I don't think this shooting now some of that is luck right if you're if teams are just killing you. A little bit of it is luck but I don't think it's just bad luck I think but you're not seeing a turnaround similar last season. I'm not giving up on this. I make that clear. I Know Tonio people deep. Now it's like you can you can. I mean historically it would be impossible until they don't make the playoffs. I'm not giving up on them. They have again if whites healthy if he if he comes back fast Murray looks good. He's not shooting as much as I would like but in the mid range or that was so ballyhooed going into last season as that happened maybe a little bit. They have good players. Pop is obviously as good as it gets. They have a history of improving as the season goes long as you just said so and the West. It's not gonNA take the bottom of the West is going to give you a window to go through. Stretch like they're going through and still find a way to to get in. I'm I'm I'm very curious about them. I really am. I am intrigued by Joe. dejount Murray's future. I want to see to Shanta Murray two or three years from now You just you look at the menace. You could be on the defensive end of the floor. You're you're learning the toughest position in the game. You've got to be able to cycle through an awful lot of coverage is quickly and and So I'm curious I'm up. I'll be curious about that. Would be nice if they could keep their health together at some point regardless regardless of whether they're in the playoffs are out to give Derek widened. Gianatti an opportunity to grow through a consistent period where they're able to get to the floor. That's really what I want to see it again. I'm not giving up on. They started slow last year. I don't ever remember alarm bells like this going off where they're just losing. A bad teams teamed getting blown off the floor on defense. They normally pete who they're supposed to be the truth. It hasn't been like this. Okay doors you gotta go. I always appreciate you. Have you make any anytime for this stupid here. I enjoyed this discussion. We'll we'll do the finals again.

It was and yet they eventually go to the monitor and I caught his reaction on a replay and I was like wow. I don't know that I've ever seen somebody that physically demonstrative. I knew it wasn't I think for mark you know. He knew how how that was dragon. And and it's it's hard it's hard and then the other thing about These reviews and this is hard for me to take and I'm curious your perspective active on its sack. It's the play where The review came foul call. Paul George Got Away with a push off offensive foul and couple people were like texting me. That should have been overturned and then I see the NBA's version of that place acworth. Essentially they said the gather hadn't in happened and therefore it was not connected to the play but any logical basketball person would say that is connected to the play and should be overturned. It's like these coaches hate it. I've not heard one like it. I don't I this'll be a one year. Experiment is the appropriate appropriate. Yeah I think so. I'd be shocked if this place next year shocked. Paradoxically given everything I just said I kind of liked the coach's challenge really because the intrigue just because you only get one. I've had people pitch me that if you use it and you win you should get another one absolutely not you get one. That's it but but I do like that. There's one thing that coaches can play in the last minute of a game if they're if you think they're only going to challenge things that are really obvious obvious and I feel like if something's obvious we might as well spend a minute on it but at the same time I just I can't take these abuses anyway. One more one more point though. Just to a level of paranoia paranoia that I think is appropriate for coaches anyway. I had one coach a few short weeks of the season. Say This is the percentage of overturn earn calls. And when you get one overturned the next call goes against you say seventy five percent of the time I was hollering. I'm like okay. Because a lot of these coaches will tell you. There's the human dynamic these these these officials don't want to be wrong and if you catch him wrong that next going against you it's interesting though One of one of the but those human dynamics real so I was. I've spent last week with the sixers and I was talking about many aspects of their team and one of them is they're fouling a lot. Yes and turning it over a lot and in what came back to me was. We don't really care that we're fouling that much because a there's the the the Utah Jazz like you can't call everything so we're just going to be super physical and that's a human dynamic the rest don't want to call everything. Sure and number two they. We're GONNA get a ton of foul shots themselves. Because of the way they play in their view is the refs are sensitive to discrepancy. That is too big so we're going to get called for certain number of fouls anyway. So why not just amp it all the way up. I thought that was very interesting interesting. Take one that's something I would have thought of what you think of the clippers. The real clippers close to the the clippers. Still no Landry Shamet. WHO's an important part of their team but close you know? I think it's fascinating that they meaning coli and Paul and actually By nature everybody else. They've not had one single moment of competitive preparation prior to last night literally not one competitive second together and yet I think you could see some of the basis for the excitement on individual defensive plays and you know the gravity of okay. Paul's on on one side is on the other. Two defenders are going to one wide open. Shot with a simple swing. Swing Swing Swing What the game you know Thompson was an attendance and he walked by me and Mike Breen at the end of the game? He's like that was like a playoff game. I mean to get that level of intensity to get that level of defense offense contested shots all over the floor You know I feel badly about something I did on the air and I was sort of zeroed in on Marcus. Smart's defensive ability these act and it it took me a stretch of time and that listen in fairness to me I thought it was Patrick. Beverley exerting his will late late in the game. That made a difference. But I was sort of saying you know Rudy Gobert got defensive player of the year on lockdown. But let's just. Let's just keep an eye on Marcus smart as a first team all defensive handsome guy year ago He's been I had him on my podcast two days ago. Now we're we'RE GONNA we're not we're not we haven't posted at this dudes ridiculous sack so there. Because they downsized so often. He's getting caught in the post. He's given up six inches. You might give up forty pounds. I mean the level of intensity the level full of smarts on attended. Yeah right voidable puns with him. This guy is it just. I just admire his competitive spirit and willingness willingness to take on every challenge and there's a level of intelligence across the board with the Celtics and the way they switch and their ability to get out of bad post up matchups APPs in a split second are the best in the League at it is so fun to watch. So let's I wanted to talk about the Celtics Anyway. So why don't we just go. Why don't we start there since there at the other team? That played last night If you look at surface level stats like The time Kemba Walker holds the ball per game versus the time Kyrie Irving held the ball per game time of his number of dribbles number of passes that the team is throwing per game. All of these things would the number of touches for Cambo versus versus Kyrie all that is essentially unchanged assist rate unchanged the tiny possession is unchanged suck unchanged. Now that's that is a little wonky because because so much of a point guards time of possession is rippling the ball right seven seconds coming off a dead ball whatever. Yeah but doesn't it look different. It looks not only does it look different. It feels different and the entire VIBE around the team is entirely different. Now listen I go back to the Connecticut. Connecticut is with with Campbell because I was still very much immersed in college basketball. I called that run to his biggest championship and I love Jim. Calhoun but he himself. Would you know admit to could be cantankerous and competitive and tough and in in the daily grind of college basketball season. He said you know if I'd it'd be in my office and not in a very good mood because of whatever reason you know some whatever you can he said inevitably Kemba Walker would walk in in the door with that smile on his face the entire countenance of our office. The tone the tenor everything would change. I had a question for you as relates to Kemba. Yes I love him. All Star obviously very capable you know can be elite in the fourth quarter. I was fascinated by how easily it seemed to me. The clippers defended him. They met him at the point of the screen. They're individual defenders who were guarding him. Could get over the screen or just needed a moment element for that. You know secondary defender to just get him a breather for a moment. I even on his drives You know twice pots String get strung out and he just kinda hangs and keeps working in blocks twice at the rim and then obviously got all kinds of separation late as you saw that what you saw. What for? I thought many things first of all Kimba has not been in a lot of. He hasn't been in any big playoff games. A couple of big play of against Charlotte that was like a playoff at that was like playoff Thing the physicality that was allow. You better get. This is like what it's going to be and I think it's good for him to get a taste of that early in the season I thought the clippers are huge sewage switchable and that's part of what's fun about. This team is when they put now. They had heartless guarding him him than had guarding him. Down the stretch when when they themselves went smaller with quiet before but when you've got Kawai. PG Beverly sometimes heartless sometimes not and then hair on the floor. You're going to be able to switch a lot a lot and in just it's not like it's so so the teams will attack the teams all tack that by saying. Okay who's not switchable Lou. Ann Treads although switchable sneaky switchable. And we'll say okay. We'll put those guys in a pick and roll. That's what we'll do. We'll take I too late right. First of all the clippers have something to say about that they can put client. PG wherever they want and second second of all PG on the wing as helped defenders is just a menace. Do you WANNA go to. Yeah because Oh by the way Patrick Beverley when he saw Brad wanamaker Acre who has been so solid for the Celtics. And you know you saw last night. When he played with Kemba because Campbell was ineffective in its normal pick and roll game They move them off the ball and UH and start setting him off staggers and trying to release them other ways back I I would not I mean I mean if you're a ball handler. Who is in any way shaky In terms of your handle whether you can't you can only put it in your left hand for one or two dribbles and then you gotta come back Patrick Noses Roses and he's GonNa get up underneath you and to watch that man pressure the ball and know that. Okay Paul An and Kawhi can be up the align and have an opportunity to be that defensive back knowing that quarterbacks under pressure I don't know which is worse good luck and good night you kidding it was really the best defensive player on the wing. Scottie Pippen has been at that that although I thought he played a very strong game last night excellent defensively last night he. He was getting his hand on the ball from behind tenacious. I didn't know his wingspan is four and a half inches longer than a person of his size should be. Yeah he's he's. He's had his hand sizes just whenever absurdly. Last time. I talked about who is hands on the air. Twitter went nut. So let's stay with the people that people need to get their minds he he's just take the ball from people. Yes just like. You're not you're if you weren't like Chris Paul Level Dribble. He would just be like in..

"Uh and of course we start with Lebron James Darrell Maury Adam silver the entire and Hall of Famer Doris Burke here would espn's doors Birkin Manhattan site of well your first preseason game in the Eastern Conference right Wednesday night on ESPN Knicks Hawks doors how are you great can't wait you see trae young tomorrow at Madison Square Garden couldn't be better I am so excited for the season one week from tomorrow night we'll be working it's fast this off season gets shorter and shorter for everybody we'll get to the season I wanNA start where everything has started lately with the NBA and China the story had may maybe quelled a little bit in the public eye once the nets the Lakers came back from China those teams Kinda resume their preseason Adam silver goes back to you know I quietly trying to piece back together the League's relationship relationships in China in the aftermath of Moore's tweet about Hong Kong the previous Friday night and then Lebron talks on Monday night Los Angeles and don't think it surprised anybody that he would have something to say on it or he hadn't talked since the trip I do think it surprise people the contents of what he said really going after Darrelle Moray he was clearly a target of of his frustration. I guess would be the word well you've taken aback by how we approached this yes I frankly was expecting a sort of end of quarter coach response us a very polite innocuous non-answer is what I was expecting I think all of us are not naive to the fact that Lebron many of these players has significant investment over there and obviously he is well liked but I was shocked act to be perfectly honest with you he is normally so media savvy the one thing I would say is if you had to be a player over in China at that moment with all of the intensity and the pressure knowing how much stress was put on Adam silver and the League the consistent cancellations of things and activities that you were supposed to do the fact that some players apparently and I think there's going to be more news this coming out lost money during that trip if you were speaking from a place of just being a player and sort of the the intensity the experience but the fact that he went after Daryl Morey I didn't understand it and I was surprised by yeah and I think there's no question that there are a lot of players the bigger the star the big shoe deal the bigger the marketing the more you have to lose and financially there's no question and there's not I'm not sure there's a star player in the last several years who maybe doesn't go to China every summer and multiple times a summer multiple times or worst every other year based on what their off-season looks like and so they understand that I always remember at the Beijing Olympics Kobe Bryant saying and still one of the most memorable moments we've had covering sports was when y'all main comes out literally playing on one lake he physically should have been out there and I remember I talk to Y'all about this podcast a few years ago and he felt a tremendous obligation with the Olympics in Beijing he was going to be carrying that flag into the stadium he was the crown jewel of their not just basketball but all athletics that watching him calm I remember he hit thinking it's only a one maybe two shots in a row to start the game and it's as loud as I've ever heard an arena and there was there was always an appreciation among players remember Kobe said that night now built a bridge to China for all of us and certainly for the League but financially for players and I think it certainly felt to me that's what Lebron now he corrected himself later on twitter maybe we'll talk about it again before this is I'm not sure he will but if he was saying Daryl's tweet put us in a bad position because we physically had to be over there there were American teams there are NBA teams there should have waited that's one conversation that's one way to look at it but if it was about the financial aspect what he's cost us individually or what might happen to the salary cap I think he just come out and say say listen this is about my and he used the word financial but I think he meandered yeah it was unclear exactly what he was saying you early had enough time to digest what had happened and if you were going to speak to it to speak to it with a measure of clarity the fact that within minutes of your you know discussing this with the media you dial back and have to send out a couple of tweets as I said he is typically so strong in his message this is delicate for everybody I get it but it's just I I was shocked I really I was expecting in innocuous non answer or a firsthand account of what it felt like to be a player in China while that was ongoing because obviously none of us can understand and and I think what is going to happen and what had started to happen I think really in the aftermath of Adam Silver's first public statement which was not strong enough I think for people in the Western world not just the NBA but people in the West said that wasn't a strong enough and clearly Adam felt that because he came back and issued a stronger saving later that I think what's happening and I think Lebron has seen this since he talked in an effort to try and protect your interests in China financially otherwise and you're worried about that marketplace audience I think the risk is going to be alienating the one you have domestically and I think that's the line if anyone else is going to speak up on this that's the line and and take a similar stance Lebron and my guesses after Lebron talked and Darrell tweets I will be surprised if there's anybody else who says much but this issue's not going away there's a microphone in front of or notebook in front of or somebody's undercount in front of them the story won't go away and I imagine we haven't heard the last from whether it's an owner a player and executive commissioner what is the bottom line for the business I feel as though I've recently either read or seen something relatives the salary cap implications as percentage of the NBA's business what are we looking at well the potential is if hypothetically and there's no reasonably this is happening if all of the revenue in China away it's significant to the cap they'd feel it now I don't feel my sense is that there's there's always concern but right now it's more of a question of the rockets money which is significant to them and that money shared in the league and rockets on television over there rockets sponsorships they have locally that all feeds into the the player perspective which is the central player share right revenue I think it would be a modest dip if this continued in there's no reason to believe necessarily that we'll be interesting is if they try to if they can continue to try to isolate one team and Houston you're not going to be on television China the sponsorship opportunities are gone forever will they isolate just one team like this or does Adam silver have a different conversation and say you can't do that to one of our teams but certainly does it have an impact for the rockets yet James Harden use his reaction initially he stepped as far away from Darryl Morris tweet and it wasn't Lebron was maybe a little more strident about it but but certainly James Harden didn't see apologizes ufologist he didn't jump bottom line he apologized since oh no question any of our possessions we are all financially invested in so now it's going to get more attention when obviously a player talks about it doc if Daryl's tweet did nothing else it forced and maybe my world's more narrow that maybe my world's too narrow but there's question it forced a conversation in this country not just around the NBA but in lots of other quarters now I know you're going right it forced people to talk about something and discuss something that a trade war wasn't necessarily doing or any other there was a sixty minutes the other night on Sunday came on after football game. CBS Six minutes reporter was embedded in with some protesters in Hong Kong. And I watched the whole thing I asked myself after what I have get on CNBC AND MSNBC and any financial program but in the American public's conscience this particular instance has brought the entire thing into sharper focus that's powerful and if it forces an examination of conscience you know we've had all these American corporations talk about we need to look at ourselves in terms of our impact in terms of climate change and any other any other number of important issues right that group of CEO's went to the government said we are committed to be good business practitioners so if it forces an examination of conscience for everybody involved in any circumstance I don't think that's a bad thing in just in the context of the NBA. I think this conversation maybe painful maybe financially costly down the road I think in the end it's healthy for the NBA. I just I think it is it's a good chance for all of us to look in the mirror and say how we feel about this how we feel about this issue to know more about what it means to do business early innovative in his job built a championship level team hasn't one one but built a team that has contended and he's the one person on the human side of this wounds that he consistently pops into my head is you know what him on any number of things but answering the questions that are constantly putting their faces it asking the questions if you don't know your numbers you don't know your business but the problem growing businesses have that keeps them from knowing their numbers is up too much time and too many resources and that hurts the bottom line so introducing net suite by.

"Walk me through some of the things that actually happen before you do that when people have too much fight or flight response in their childhood doesn't make it hyper or Hypo does it fatigue you run out because I interestingly had a blood panel a few years ago and the guy said to me now I took this feather my cat but he said this guy works with like the ABC's with a couple of football teams one of these and he goes your dream glands are like they're not making adrenaline he goes in I've really only seen this in the ABC's guys which they're just in so much shit eventually it gets fatigue kinda stops working you kind of need adrenaline for your mood stabilization so any who yeah it does it does it get fatigued or does it become hyperactive let me start by explaining what the fight or flight response is yeah so all of us the way that we are designed signed is that when we experience something scary or traumatic right like imagine you're walking in the forest and you see up there and what happens is that immediately the amid delay in your brain which is your brains fear center arm activates and it sends signals to your whole body and your body releases stress hormones including like you said adrenaline and Cortisol May and these have lots of effects on your body so the effects of adrenaline think about it when the last time you skate right like your heart starts to pound you're filling your muscles with oxygen that's right you're pupils dilate your airways open up you sean blood to your big muscles for running and jumping away from that Itty bitty muscle that whole Your Bladder Closer You may pee your pants yeah and that's awesome if you're in a forest and you're gonNA find a bear but if you were to think about it fighting a bear wouldn't seem like a good idea right right and so actually you're amid della fear center sends projections it sends like neurons nerve cells to the part of your brain that's responsible for executive functioning MMA judgment impulse control it's your prefrontal CORTEX and it turns it way down it because you don't want judgment to get in the way of survival and instead what it does it turns up the part of the brain it's called the Nord genetic nucleus the locus earliest but hit me when I got a little more Komo urgent nucleus of the Locus Sarah's wow all right but I like to call it the part of the brain responsible for karate I'm from center the brain stress response and then the other thing that happens when you activate your stress response that's a little bit less obvious is that it also activates your Hyun response because if that bear gets his claws into you you want your immune system to be primed to bring influence ancient to stabilize that wound you can live long enough to beat that bear or getaway oh Jesus and I have an autoimmune thing you just kind of map that out for me yes so just really quick in a very pragmatic example of what you're talking about I read this great book on killing and in World War One they've found many many the people in the trench warfare who had been shot who never fired their gun and that was so perplexing to all of these people because they thought why one if us Germans running at you firing at you want your response to fire back in what they later found through all sorts of research is that exactly what you're saying your frontal lobe goes off line so you're not making a rational decision with they really found as we had this binary grouping of flight or fight and in fact most traumatic situations in the Wild solve themselves with posturing and submitting that's the bulk of how we resolve things so a bear growls most people intuitively will submit they'll cower the look down the all these things you gotta be trained almost into running and so all these guys were watching posturing which was allowed gun firing at them and they were submitting I surrender don't shoot me and they just sat there and got shot in so they had to train these people a part of their brain that would act without thinking basically to fire no matter what yeah and it's actually we as a shorthand I say fight or flight but you're actually in say fight flight or freeze so that's along short of like what happens with stress response really good if you're in that aww autoimmune part that's really fascinating in folks with high aces are at dramatically increased risk for autoimmune disease or more double the risk we're more aces seven of those because there was so much inflammation early kind getting the sack division of the arrest response also activates the inflammatory response and this is the thing so this as Dr Right like this is why this is such a most people think about substance use or mental health issues or incarceration heart diseases a number one killer in the United States of America right you have four or more adver shot experiences you're twice the risk for heart disease we spend three trillion dollars a year in our country on healthcare seventy five percent of which is for the treatment of chronic disease and what makes me really sad and upset as a doctor when read this information I was like why is no one telling hey having aces can increase your risk of these health problems and why are we not investing because we're spending trillions of dollars and by the way I get the fiscal conservative point of view I totally understand it but even if you don't give a shit about anybody in all you care about is dumping money down the toilet that minimally should get you interested in the preventative route through these the trillion dollar fees that we're all paying yes because here's the thing we now know enough to do something about the so this is something that we can prevent this is something we can heal this is something that we can interrupt and the amount of money we're spending on healthcare costs because having four or more ac is increases your risk for eight out of ten of the leading causes of death in the US that's a big deal right again give myself as a personal ad sample I was on Humira I forget how much that was a month it was thousands I was on sale Jen's that's thousands a month so just me personally I've gobbled up ends of thousands of dollars to deal with an auto immune thing and so that's the medical science behind it in terms of your question around what happened is to your stress response so what the research shows is that it becomes overactive for a lot of people and then in some cases and sometimes in the more severe cases what you see is essentially burn out of your Stress Response System as you get higher and higher doses of adversity you and so that may be what they were finding and I was just telling Monica this the other day I don't know if I accidentally found a back door solution to all this and it's probably GonNa make it worse in the long run but we used to think of I remember taking a psychology class early on and they basically said the difference between people who can watch the grass grow and risk takers is this Emilio Chemical in your brain and it really creates brain activity and so some people who a lot of Mayo they could stare at Blair grass watch it grow in the brain is on fire other be will Oh Ma oh they got to jump off a bridge or something and that was the two categories kind thought of that in but now as I learn more about this in fatiguing your Adrenalin saying Monica because ride a motorcycle most places around la which is an Adrenalin raising experience because your lane splitting there's tons of and I was saying as like the days I drive my motors go to or from work I'm in such a better mood and I'm like I wonder if I'm just like squeezing a little bit of adrenaline outs it helps stabilize the mood or something so one of the things that it's really interesting about this research is that they found that high doses of adversity also affects the pleasure and Award Center of your brain right so this is the part of your brain that stimulated by cocaine heroin Zack's you've gone elaborate things delicious delicious everything and what's interesting so this is a pleasure center of your brain and what they found does that high doses of adversity in childhood affects the structure and the function of the way that part of the brain can develop what can happen is that activities that should be pleasurable actually it's less sensitive so you need higher doses of the so you know I think for someone who perhaps has zero aces they get a little bit right like they get a little bit of something exciting and they're good right right and so this is why folks with four more aces right ten times as likely to be substance dependent yeah so okay so that's an very interesting scientific way to think about it but I have to share with you this kind of breakthrough I had recently and I wonder if this jibes with that which is I've talked to so many people who have tried cocaine that are like I would imagine across the board this chemical works on everyone's brain the same that they they must feel what I feel in the when I talked to people who are ambivalent about it it's so confusing to me and then again that goes with it alcohol it goes all these and that's always been a little perplexing to me and when I thought of the other day was a good childhood friend of mine who had quadruple I had I mean and in fact I think maybe even why some of my stuff I didn't even go on something bad like he is living in fucking hell you know one bedroom trailer it's crazy alcoholics beating everyone just fucking carnage all day long every single day he and I both fell in love getting fucked up together I mean that was our life would I remembered the other day was there was a period for a year where he huffed gas he carried a gun a gas can't around for a year in eighth grade now I don't know if you've ever huffed gasoline gasoline gasoline you just you huff it I have done it and let me tell you it's the worst feeling imaginable I hey it's the grossest buzz you could ever have it feels terrible right so I did it in eighth grade or ninth grade and I'm like this is terrible and I never could make peace with why he enjoyed that and what I thought of a few weeks ago I was like man all that tells you what his standard fan the only emotional feeling was so fucking shitty that that terrible high of huffing gas felt better and I almost started crying for him and I almost started crying for me because I was like yeah for a lot of us when we took that I drink we were like Oh my God relief this feels so much better in to the point of huffing glue and gas and all this shit that feels terrible to this is something that I talked about with researcher at Stanford who has done a lot of this work out the impact of trouser diversity on the brain and we were sitting down he's doing all these MRI studies and we're looking that you can you know some of the stuff is now evident on me I and you can see we're talking he was like so imagine you're a kid and you're experiencing this from the time you're itty-bitty is it any wonder her that by the time you get old enough to get access to substances you're like bring it on because up until that moment it's no relief and again I'm not asking presumably I'm asking everyone feel bad for addicts whatever I'm just saying it's fascinating that the thing is as complicated as it you know in the longer I'm around other addicts can't not not observed these patterns emerging so you know a lot how many of the addicts that you know have had some experience of childhood trauma like what percent mice sponsor who has over the last thirty years probably sponsored a thousand guys probably at this point gay told me you know your four steps where you right out all these resentments and then you take a personal inventory and then you read it to your sponsor and he said that no questions seventy five percent of the people have a sexual abuse thing in their inventory that's like that's dark so this is the point it's regardless of how you're feeling about the choices that people make in their life face Nick Science and Public Health tells us that if we identify early and we intervene early we can change the odds for people MHM right and that's what it's about regardless of whether you're on the most progressive side or you're on the most conservative side changing the odds for people improving the likelihood that they can be healthy productive income earners tax paying to that is if you were to look at my life on paper every
