Fresh air and fear of mass transit puts bicycles back on Mumbai streets
"GonNa, start with Mumbai Bicycle Counselors Why are they getting on the bikes? Like most cities around the World Mumbai has started rolling out pop bike lanes to accommodate I mean I've I've seen a huge increase in the number of black as people sort of shook public transport during the pandemic but the city is taking it one step further than pop up bike lanes are going. Install in positions of influence in city, Council counselors for its twenty four wards who are going to advocate for cycling, which is really exciting. So they're gonNA essentially, they're going to be Negotiating with stakeholders like local businesses are the civic authorities, NGO schools and colleges. To help the rollout of black lines and black infrastructure in the CD and looking helping to set up Docs for for bikes for for people to pick him up from train stations, and even setting up training zones in parts of the city for people that aren't perhaps confident on their bikes to learn. But a bit of a backlash Montrose in some places over the provision ice lanes. Maybe, this is the city that actually could have used simple counselors because because to me, it seems like there's been a little bit of a breakdown in communication in Montreal or at least certainly in terms of engagement with with the local communities. Said, they're rolling out temporary black lanes as many cities are but. A stretch in in Montreal on a believe it's it's not street Notre Dame street West outside a few venerable restaurants and establishments. Has received some backlash from from the restaurant owners there, and actually we didn't twenty four hours the city at roll back their plans to the temporary Klein and sorry it had been installed removed temporary black line and I think for me here. The thing that's interesting about this story is clearly there wasn't enough consultation and and perhaps perhaps the solution. That I propose wasn't necessarily suitable for that part of the city which clearly is relying on people unfortunately, not unfortunately, the reality is that lots of people in the city still need to be able to drive their cars and drive to these restaurants and and perhaps a better solution that balanced bike lanes with car parking motive might have served the solution that.
AstraZeneca Rivals Moderna in Race to Successful SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine with ChAdOx1 nCov-19!
"So I'm glad to be back and I have a pretty exciting show for everyone today the main. Main Serb we're going to talk about is the latest publication by AstraZeneca in the Journal. The. Lancet of their source to vaccine, and we're going to take a look at the data, look safety and contrast that to what I talked about with regards to earn his maxine last week. So definitely check out that show first and then watch this if you're interested by. That's going to be the main story, and then we're also gonNA touch on a few other biotech companies that invested in that updated their earnings, the last little wild for Q. Two. So that's going to do for the show. And really that's not much going on in the biotech space unfortunately lately, we seem quite a sell off in the X., p. I and I think that's largely due to the executive orders announced by the trump administration when I looked at them though it didn't seem to affect the company's I'm invested in which are mostly small and mid cap. Biotech. These executive orders had more of an impact on drugs that actually price right now in the market and the one in particular, that's concerning for large-cap Pharma is the one that forces companies to maintain pricing through the US and ex us. A lot of companies are able to charge a premium in the US compared to ex us, and now there's going to have to be normalized in what that means is that often these left lower their price for Americans which they didn't need to do before this so. That's kind of what's going on in biotech space excitement in the market otherwise has to do more with the tech companies that just destroyed their earnings on Friday. So we saw a huge increases in facebook, apple Amazon Google. So the sciences to be flowing more towards those companies than the XP. Even though the FBI did recently hit all-time highs. Personally I managed to get on a road trip in the last week or so and I checked out SEDONA Arizona for those who've not been there. It's definitely worth checking out if you live in the US, it's it's pretty gorgeous place except for the heat, the heat is pretty insane and somebody lives in San Diego, it's shocking to see the numbers go up to one hundred and fourteen degrees, Fahrenheit, but it was nice to get away for a bit and one other piece of business I. GotTa Get through is to give a shoutout to a friend of mine named Dave Coggin. And the reason for this that we had a friendly bet over a ping pong tournament yesterday that I would give him a shout-out if I lost all the games against him and he ended up beating me in every one of them. So with that, let's actually get into the meat of the show. And again, thanks everybody. All support all the emails in tweets in the comments on my channel are very, very much appreciated. It does go far with in terms of spreading the word and getting the podcast out there. So thank you for that. Now, the first company I WANNA talk about is trillium therapeutics, and they're sitting around fifty, five, hundred and fifty, million dollar market CAP, and we're talking about them today because they had a press release announcing a delay in data and people were expecting a clinical update on their six to one and sixty two product in the middle of twenty twenty, and that's around this time now, and instead what we're hearing is that they're going to. To this update at the American Society for Hematology Meeting in December of twenty twenty. So it's about a six month delay, not the end of the world, but there was really no relevant update provided in this press release. They mentioned that can relax refractory C. T. cell patients have been enrolled in the first four cohorts, and they were treated with the sixty. One monotherapy at does doses up to one point, four milligrams per kilogram. They also mentioned that they completed dose limiting top evaluation of cohort four, which is that one point, four milligrams per kilogram does and they're now moving onto the two point zero milligram per kilogram dose. So not really much to report the stock sold off from the sevens to around the fives and then was bought back into the sixes. So I think my average position is around the fives end. I decided not take an additional position into it because I am pretty heavy in the stock. And yet, it's unfortunate delay, but I don't think the fundamentals of the company at all are in jeopardy and some other things to know if you WANNA take a position in sort of CD, forty, seven molecule, which is what Chile him is commercializing They did announce a solid tumor study, which is going to be starting pretty soon, and we're GONNA see data in that in twenty twenty one. So if they see good data in solid tumors I think the stock could Garner maybe a five x valuation from where it is. Now, let's kind where I see trillium eventually, and I plan on holding well into twenty. Twenty one.
Animal Crossing adds bad luck and Valve's Gabe Newell prefers Xbox Series X
"Animal Crossing New Horizons Ads lucked into the game which may have larger implications regarding its future valve boss Gabe. Newell says, he prefers xbox series and X. playstation five but doesn't really explain why and CD project red warns against clicking links in emails about a cyberpunk twenty, seventy, seven, begum. Animal Crossing has been updated to include bad luck animal crossing received a second summer update recently after adding swimming a little while ago. But this one will make you fall over in drop balloons more, which is weird and further proof that maybe animal crossing isn't for me specifically but I suppose I, could see why adding that random to the game would be. Fun. Basically. As you're running around the island, sometimes you might trip and fall, and if you're holding a balloon, a newly added item, you will drop it. It will fly into the sky. You will also apparently be able to now create a King Tut mask if you find some gold but if you wear the mask, it will make you trip more. The implication there is that luck and specifically bad luck may have been introduced to the game, which is something that has been an animal crossing games in the past Patricia Hernandez reported on the update for Polygon and explained how this mechanic was implemented previously writing on a good luck day everything is amazing. You'll get more money from rocks. It'll be easier to befriend villagers and you'll have a better time avoiding bees because they'll. Move more. Slowly, the world's your choice. Ter- on bad luck days. It's the complete opposite you'll find fewer resources it'll be harder to raise friendship levels the money rock will become stingy and just to pour salt on the wound you'll trip and fall on your face wearing the King Tut mask will immediately lower your luck which is why you'll trip way more often it's probably an Easter egg hinting at the masks cursed nature The full story complete with some embedded video showing the tripping mechanic and action is linked to the show notes. This is such a strange, but this is kind of where animal crossing tends to shine weird little additions that make the overall experience more interesting, and in this case, a little unpredictable. Valve's Gabe Newell says he prefers the xbox series x when it comes to next Gen hardware. This is a quick story because. Honestly, there isn't a lot to report on here but Gabe Newell Generator of Countless memes and the boss over at valve appeared recently on a New Zealand talk show called the project and he was asked which next generation platform he preferred and he said without much hesitation the xbox series X. C. Nets Daniel von Boom reported on Newell's preference and wrote in their story appearing on New Zealand talk show the project Newell was asked by a host which console would be better the xbox. He said emphatically to a year from an audience member when pressed on whether his preference stems from his years. Working at Microsoft, he added I don't have a stake in that race we do most of our development on personal computers but the two I would definitely go with an xbox that story is linked in the show notes. But that's all knew really had to say in the past he has been outspoken about not being a particular fan of playstation not in a vitriolic way or anything, but it just mostly because it was difficult to develop for playstation three for example, in Valve Games do just fine with their PC releases but valve and Sony did for some steam applications on the playstation three not. Came from it but for a time, there was some compatibility between certain steam games like portal to Andy playstation three version of portal two, but it sounds like. Relationship was there has just not sustained. There are plenty of suctions that can be made here. Of course, maybe Newell and Valve are just million with the xbox series XS development tools since they do all stem from pc architecture, maybe newell doesn't like how Sonya's investing in unreal and how epic is using the playstation five to showcase. The next unreal engine epic and Unreal Do Represent Valve and steams biggest competitor in the digital PC. Game storefront battle may be newell just pates Ratchet and clank. It's all currently unclear. But if you're a valve fan and want to see more valve games on consoles, it sounds like xbox series x might be your better bet. Here's what released today liberated is out today on it's a puzzle platformer game that takes place inside a comic book. I actually gave it a full proper review on the June fifth episode of the Gaming Ride Home podcast. It has some cool ideas, but ultimately, kind of came up short for me when I played the switch version, some of my complaints were related to technical hiccups though. So maybe the PC version will be a little smoother

So of a PSA more than anything seen read is made clear that it has no plans for a cyberpunk twenty, seventy, seven Beta after scam emails appear to offer recipients chance to join one on twitter.

Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"For more on the status of the next Corona virus relief package were joined by Bloomberg News Congressional reporter Eric Watson, Eric Watson, We heard. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged that his members air all over the lot on the next relief bill. How does that this unity compared to Democrats? And what does that mean? As these negotiations come down to the wire and relief program start to expire? Well, I think Nancy Pelosi to have speaker and Chuck Schumer Senate Majority leader Really looking at this is giving them leverage. You know, if the car can get 51 members on board, you know, he really is is not showing a lot of muscle a star being behind this proposal of closely highlight that in a late on Monday. I'm just saying that they're in complete disarray, and we are seeing evidence of that. There was a Republican lunch on Tuesday and a lot of numbers came out there. Not comfortable with the $1 trillion price tag there not comfortable with lot of Parisians in here, and I think they're really looking to re establish their sort of deficit hawks on the CDs that we saw Republican Party The Paul Ryan era before Trump came along the base itself. One remind viewers and listeners what's in that $1 trillion Republican plan, the Heels act as it's called, Yeah, it's really about eight part plan and it's got a lot of different moving parts to the main part of the are a direct famous stimulus of $1200 per person making up to 75. Dollars that is almost exactly modeled on the March proposal that went out of most Americans was also an extension of the settlement. Unemployment insurance benefits, But not these six. Another level that we're seeing currently would lower to about $200 for two months and then have states come completed complex calculation to figure out And make sure people only getting a maximum 70% of their previous wages and status. It is difficult to implement that bill would give him another two much waver if they're having trouble also build more money for, you know, testing for education. 2/3 of the $70 billion for education tied School's reopening and Democrat Tristan. This is using a stick approach, and Trump is endangering the welfare of Children. It's really seeing that and plus their liability protection. This is Mitch McConnell's top Ah, ah, asking. This is to protect businesses from lawsuits if they reopen the coronavirus, and that's what he's going to be interesting on in any final. Billy's reiterated that again this week. And why is it his top? Asked. He made sure to emphasize that today it was the one part of the program that he briefly brought up after that Senate lunch that you that you attended in reporting on very closely aligned with the Chamber of Commerce. Half of Republicans, This is business concerns. A really raising this worry about trial lawyers coming in and making ah little money off a class action lawsuits and so forth things. They also an impediment to re opening businesses are concerned. With Jim Louie Vito are or regular office of having people see that they were less likely to tipping hired workers pass that his point of view that is diagnosis of the current situation, Democrats say Instead, let's have OSHA. Let's have the Occupational safety and Hazard. I'm sorry Health Administration come up with a strong standard of clear standard and you know companies get through. They could cite that they're complying with OSHA standards. You know, it is providing protective equipment and barriers and other social distancing measures. And that would solve the problem. I think you have some kind of compromise here. But there's big elements. This proposal from Republicans of shifting lawsuits from the states where torture normally handled to the federal government. And Democrats are loath to do that you mentioned compromised. Democrats air pushing their $3.5 trillion Heroes Act was passed in the house back in May 208 votes to 199 votes. Republicans, of course, pushing this $1 trillion plan, but it was Senate Republican Conference chairman John Thune, who today said I think there's a lot here to agree on. Where could be the lines of agreement? Well, it's it's officially if you have got two numbers here, and it's going to end up somewhere in between. That's what you know what Republicans are nervous about. You know, they're saying, we're start. Our opening day is not zero. It's one trillion is going to end up two trillion or more fear on that from Republican side. I think Democrats are hopeful. There are things in their provisions in there, bill, whether it's an Internet or water that probably could be tightened, taking care of elsewhere that's often been talked about today potential. Deal later on with Trump, especially, he's realized about infrastructure. So, um, it would be a priority for the bride administration, and he has the only thing that they can do and deal with later. They're more nice to have and have tohave. I think for Democrats really won the key one that's missing in that Republican president nearly $1 trillion for state and local governments. You know when the shutdown happen, revenue really dried up for a lot of these local and state governments, and there's they're facing the possibility of millions of people being laid off in the public sector. So Democrats are pushing out their top ask and, you know, I don't know if Republicans are hard, fast against that. Maybe there's a compromise there
CDC sets out new guidelines for reopening US schools
"The school calendar is not the end encounter. A new front in the back to school debate, every school district has to make these decisions. These are complex decisions. The CD's out with long-awaited guidelines making the case, schools should reopen in some cases arguing children suffer in a remote learning environment there really are have been substantial public health, negative consequences for children, not being at school and stressing, they appear to be at lower risk for serious complications. Complications from covid nineteen and are less likely to spread the virus than adults with the science on. That still isn't settled. What I can't tell you for sure. Despite the South Korea study is whether children under ten in the United. States don't spread the virus is the same as children over ten I, think that is still an open question that needs to be studied in the United States. One reason there's so much concern particularly in hot spots like Florida Miami Dade County. You're talking about three hundred fifty thousand students plus another forty thousand teachers, so you're putting tremendous amount of people back into the economy in a way that could could end up being super spreader event. Exactly. What doctors and overwhelmed hospitals? There are worried about. Is Way too dangerous here right now to have face to face schools and we're drowning. We're absolutely drowning here. This E also advising local authorities to take into account, the level of virus transmission in the community before resuming in person classes. When you look at the hot spots, I think most of us all right now. Looking where the percents positivity rate within the community is greater than five percent, many of the nation school districts pressure to make a decision before the CDC guidance came down some deciding to hold online only classes in the fall others postponing the start of the school year. Despite, positivity rate above twelve percent. Arizona's Governor Doug Ducey asking schools to open on time this fall while leaving the decision to local leaders

"I'm here with Brian Vase Lee who is a popular and outspoken advocate, author and researcher with over two decades of experience in natural health who opposes the widespread perception that likens getting older to getting a disease, and who instead supports the truth that your forties, fifties sixties, and beyond can and should be the best years of your. Life Brian is hosting the worldwide release of his second major online summit called the little known. life-changing Health Summit The relaunches tomorrow July twenty second. This is really the pinnacle of his missions I'm really excited to have you Brian here on the show to tell us a little more about that welcome. Welcome Paul Thank you for having me Samantha. How are you an Perry well very well? I can't wait to dive in. I mean you've been in the health and wellness field for such a long time. You were really key to building more cola dot, com, and so many other organizations that we've all admired for years. You really could have done anything with your background and your expertise so I'm curious. How did you end up becoming such a leading voice for anti aging and longevity? Really for two decades, you know I've been both in front of the scenes and behind the scenes in this space if you will And indeed like you said I was at a crossroad, so I grew up in a rather rough Chicago neighborhood and you know there were challenges there for sure, but I guess we'll just take it to the heart of the matter. My Dad was a really good man until age nine, and then he became severely alcoholic, quite abusive to me and to my sister, and to my mother, and it was rough. It was a really really rough time to his credit. We finally did manage to kick the alcohol on the other hand. He still stayed quite bitter really at himself because. He had one heck of an interesting life I'll tell you that I mean he was a spy belief for the US during world. War Two saw some things in Germany. You know that he was. To his dying day was not able to share you know his sworn oath, not to share certain things, but he was previously married. He had a my half brother. His one of his sons was killed, and he had a first wife before that even who they got into an argument, she stepped out of the car, and she was killed on the spot by a truck, heading your, so he faced a lot of things and. And Samantha back in those days I. Think you know an older folks? Listening here might recognize especially you didn't go to counseling or eating. Go to therapy just wasn't nearly as normal or accepted as it is today, so he dealt with it, saying the wrong way big point being as you can hear my heart right now I totally long ago forgave all that he did, but it was rough. I mean when I was younger. When I'm twenty, and he's on finally on his death, but after suffering for years from some serious diseases in a horrible way, I myself got my girlfriend pregnant at that age twenty so very poor myself. Finally he did pass away, so I had it rough continuing on from that point, too. You know I sold my piece. That comes to mind. Remember US I sold my entire CD collections to keep our heat on one month, and you know face all kinds of stuff like that, but this is not a sad story. I'm Kinda. My tissue. Brian Combined Calgary. because. Even know through depression, and and you know certain addictions myself but. The one thing that kept me literally the reason I'm alive. Today still is because of strong women, strong women I had saints have a saint. Still you know for a mother, wonderful strong's older sister, certain teachers who all you know in my case where female and these people kept me on my toes, cut me some cases alive and going through a lot of severe depression and hardship and things like that so. Eternal gratitude for these really powerful women's now you know I made it through. I made it beyond I'm certainly thriving in the most important ways today, but as I moved along there, we talked twenty some years experiences now in natural health and research, and all this good stuff I acquired so much worthwhile. I guess we'll say knowledge from so many wonderful people so many not only factor, certainly a lot of the doctors who who are in this field and experts like yourself and others you know in different aspects of natural health herbalism, certainly essential oils, your expertise, and all these different areas and. Did come to that crosser and two things are happening, said. Wow, there's so much information Samantha that so many people don't realize. Don't have at their fingertips. It's not easily accessible to them. Because we live in the society where the powers that be get to define what health means you know for example in the powers that be you know we all know. These drug companies in the you know the conventional healthcare system as the phrase goes I I'm like wow, people don't realize there's so much they can do when it comes to helping themselves. Helping is prolonging their lives, not just prolonging is but increasing the joy. In the process in other words, not just living longer, but living well doing it, and by the way looking amazing to in the what I call the real way and the other thing that was happening while realize. Wow, have access to all these amazing people as well who I want to share their message and all they're not now just out. All these doctors and others have I also looked it was. was kind of sad because I'm like. Wow, these powerful women that saved me. My Mom's in her. You know Middle Seventies. My sister's in her fifties. My wife is in her forties, and they're all confronting this big gigantic myth, and it hits men, too. Don't get me wrong. We're challenged by this, too, but it. It really impacts women in a much harder way, which is getting older is equated to getting. A disease that getting older equals suffering, and it must equal. Go being over the hill, so to speak Saying goes when you hit your forty, and this is such a pervasive myth out there. That especially impacts women and their psychology almost Samantha that it just drags their whole being down. It's hard not to let it because that's the message out there. If you're twenty one, you're at the pinnacle of the world, and you know if you're in your forty s or beyond, it's all downhill from there. Guess what that contradicted everything that I was an had been. been learning for years from all these natural health docs and others in in this wonderful space, and like that's not true, and it's sad to me to see these super powerful women that saved my life, even impacted by this so I almost had no choice. You know what I'm going to bring forward this message about true deeper, anti aging and longevity to people. And hence the art of anti-aging, and hence you know like you noted, and I appreciate that really the pinnacle of our mission, and all were about. Is this summit on? That's coming up the little known
Twitch signs rapper Logic to an exclusive seven-figure deal
"Let's talk a little more about the rapper. Logic Aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall the second signed an exclusive streaming partnership. With soundcloud not with spotify with twitch, it's the services first exclusive streaming deal with a musician in an interview with the Verge Hall said the deal was worth. Seven figures didn't give the exact amount, but said he's been active on twitch, since two, thousand, fifteen or twenty sixteen, his first stream, as part of the deal will be July, twenty first with a premiere of his self-proclaimed final album called no pressure. They said he also plays. Plays Video Games so he's going to be doing that on there as well I think. It's interesting Sarah that we're seeing twitch makes deals with non video game, purveyors, or players as we see, facebook and Youtube tried to sign people away from twitch. Yeah, no, kidding! I mean logic is whether or not you're familiar with his music. He's A. He's a big artist. This is somebody that's going to get a lot attention for twitch. Whether. He's huge Gamer or not I mean. He says you know he's familiar with. She's been hanging out on twitter for the for the last four or five years kind of thing you know that probably helped the deal become that much sweeter, but I wonder how somebody like a musician who supposedly retiring at least from what we consider the traditional music route. I Dunno people retire all the time. And then they come back to the music industry, but but but yeah, like what does you know? What is this kind of exclusive access to a person, and they might do all sorts of things besides what you know them for and twitch being one of those things and it. Be In this live kind of thing because you get that on Instagram, you do get that on Youtube. You have a variety of places to do this, but the exclusivity part is very interesting. Yeah Caitlin I, Dunno, if you follow any of the twitch, streamers are not. I'm a little bit here and there. I've used the platform I've watched him shows. And really all I have to say about this is. That is really interesting. The music industry I'll kind of change its ways because it had to, it had to update. People were going out and buying CDs anymore. You know people aren't buying full albums. They're buying songs individually so they had to figure out some different ways of generating revenue and seeing them partnering. You know artists partying with twitch or seen what fortnight has been doing with their concerts? And watching this video games slash music crossover has been really interesting, and frankly I like it because it's interesting. My kids who are more into gaming than they are music to different things, yeah. I mean it's kind of a renaissance. Move Right and I think it's really smart for logic to to say like I don't want the pressure despite the name of my final album to always be on me to to you, know actually I that is the name. It's no pressure I. Don't want the pressure to be on me for music. He doesn't say he's going GONNA. GonNa stop making music, but he's not gonNA feel pressured to always be putting out an album. Because now he's got a direct pipeline to his fans and I think that's that's really interesting. Aspect of this is. Is they creator saying I don't WanNa? Be just a musician, just a video game player my question is. Are we to get mixed tape, logic or album logic? And that remains to be seen, but yeah, I mean that's a really good point. for an artist to be like okay. Well I've been super successful in one arena, but I want to do some other stuff, but it's not super clear what those dreams are going to be yet, and it was just logically and video games. Okay, well, that would that would sort of true with which audience, but it might not be, and it might open up a lot of other opportunities for other artists as well. I think we're an interesting time right now. Where a lot of are celebrities, a lot of our big names are people that are simply known for the colts of personality. They're not necessarily known for being additions being actors doing things there. We have the know reality stars. We have people that are famous, just because of who they are, so it's really. Interesting, see these people make the people that are established WANNA. Rea- make that transition to see if they can kind of cut it being famous just for meme.
Twitter shares stumble after high-profile, unprecedented hack
"Welcome back to pass twitter trading lower today as a company deals with the fallout from the hack of several high profile accounts the FBI. Incident and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle or calling for more information for more on this, let's bring time I, or the chief security officer insights tie welcome great to see you again. You said that that basically the hackers got their hands on the crown jewels twitter. Meaning the administrative access, how should there be more security surrounding the person in the people who have this administrator access privilege? Well twitter does have a great security team. You Know Hindsight is always twenty twenty, but I think there are things that could have been done in order to secure that type of account, but we have to keep in mind you know. We love talking about technology and security, but the attackers the attackers attack people, and so in this case, if somebody was social engineered, it's it's a little bit harder to actually be able to stop the attack. Is this a bigger problem for twitter than than say an attack on the individual accounts? Toya because we have seen attacks on individual accounts, but now we actually have access to all the account, so you can run a coordinated tackling the one we've seen now and gain access to very high profile counts. I spoke to you last two on in doing research and doing the interview for the Bitcoin Documentary, and we talked a lot about the dark web, so you know this. CD Corner of the Internet quite well What's your take on on what the hacker could have gotten and what it could be worth? On the dark web. So, the attacker in this case beyond access to a lot of different accounts right so. The fact that he made off with one hundred and twenty thousand dollars on, consider that pretty lucky in the sense of if it ended with that because we have to keep in mind, it's not just the molly loss other went to these bitcoin accounts. If the attacker really wanted, he could sell this to another player who could do a lot of other things with it, and in addition think about it if they would have taken this to political figure and tweeted something now that could cause diplomatic issues as well. What's your sense as to whether or not? We've seen the full fall out of this hack attack. I mean. These hackers could've ETA have had access for very long time sort of trolling or or or getting harvesting data in direct messages, etc, for purposes of maybe blackmail later down the line. It seems to me that. Maybe we don't know what the full impact of this is. Not Twitter are still investigating this, but judging by the actions, the attacker took i. it seems like they were actually under some time constraints because they did try to sell access to some of these accounts on an external an underground forum. And later pretty quickly moved onto actually sending out this. BITCOIN SCAM so since we're actually under some time. Pressure otherwise. I would expect them to do exactly as you said. Hang around a little bit planned and coordinated this attack. Keep in mind that when you have access to something as important as an admin panel. You know that at some point somebody will detected on. Somebody will put the brakes on that so I think that he had to engage pretty fast. You think it's a one off a tie.

CDC director says agency won't rewrite guidelines for reopening schools
"The president is threatening to pull federal funding from school districts that don't offer in person classes this fall. The report from ABC, Stephanie Ramos were very much going to put pressure on Governors and everybody else to open the school's president, Trump tweeting. He disagrees with the CDC on their very tough and expensive guidelines for opening schools, the president said today. We just don't want the guidance to be too tough, though CDC guidelines call for safety measures like masks six feet of spacing between desks, open windows, avoiding the cafeteria and playground equipment if possible. But mixed messages from the White House Corona virus a task force. I want to make it very clear. That was not the intent of CD sees guidelines. Is to be used as a rationale to keep schools closed in Florida. There's heated debate after the state ordered schools to reopen in August. I don't think it's responsible to go back to school at a Tampa school board meeting students, teachers and parents like this, e R doctor are worried, thinking really hard to make a decision. So I can't make that decision as a physician treating covert patients whose come from that space. I'm not sure how their parents can. New Jersey teacher Adam Roth wants back in the classroom. If it's safe, we can have Not much greater impact on our student population if we are with them, just in a state of the country's largest public school system in New York City, unveiling its plan to re opened with a mix of online learning with 2 to 3 days in the classroom, leaving it up to parents, the governor blasting the president, arguing he has no authority over the decision to reopen schools. Vivants has. Don't listen to the CDC. I disagree with them. Really? You know, Mr President, better than your have health experts had to protect the health of students. The president hasn't spelled out how he would cut off funding he would need Congress to cut off the little he controls. Most schools are funded by the state and local levels, but the vice president has suggested the White House could tie Of reopening of schools to Corona virus funding down the line. That's a B C.

Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

Crop failure rate for wild rice is increasing with climate change
"Minnesota's legendary extreme winter cold is critical to the survival of many native plants and animals, but temperature trans show Minnesota's average winter temperature has warmed six degrees since nineteen seventy, and the milder winters appeared to be Reducing Wild Rice Harvest Yields Peter David is a wildlife biologist for the Great Lakes, Indian fish and Wildlife Commission Hi Peter, welcome to climate cast. Thanks for the opportunity. Why is extreme winter cold so important to wild rice? This is a plant that's adapted to northern harsh growing conditions. And so even northern Minnesota Northern Wisconsin that's solar edge of its range, and you can suspect this is going to be a point out. That's really susceptible. To. Climate impacts one of them winter aspect is just that the SPLAT needs a long hard winter for the seed Germination. And those harsh winter conditions also helped not back. Some of the other plants that wild rice typically competes with. There's really whole host of native. Climate change that are probably impacting wild rice throughout its growing season, so if the range is limited climate change is in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Would they be pretty important then to wear? The wild rice is able to flourish. There are two species I should mention lose in northern and southern wound rise, but the northern species is the one that is really important human harvesters, because it has a large highly nutritious seed. That's found only in any level of abundance in these two states, so if you're a tribal member for example living on this landscape, it doesn't help you. Much of wild rice can only grow successfully Canada in the future. Wild Rice is called Minoan in the JIB way language. Wiersma Noman so important to the JEB loy culture. Is almost impossible for me to overstate how culturally important manolas. For people who are familiar with your jubilee or initial migration story, these trouser living once along the eastern seaboard, and they move to this part of the world following prophecies that indicated that they had to go west if they were going to survive as a people. And that migration. They weren't sure how long it was going to be. Where exactly they were going, but the prophecy was that they would be at their destination. When they came to the place with the food grew out of the water. And so they brought them finally probably over generations to this western Lake Superior Regionally monoment bowl of the world, so this plant has great cultural significance right there, but it is also this food that rose out of the water, and it has more overall nutrition than any other food that was available in the region, the native diet, and so you can imagine the significance. This has, and it's literally. This food day is present. From birth to death. throughout the year and all of the ceremonies, it's intricately tied to a deputy. Tell us about the elders four year rule and how that's changing. One of the first things the elders taught me when I started three decades ago and you'll very little rice. The wild rice is an annual plant. It comes up from CD cheer, and that's one of the reasons why it may also be more responsive to climate change. But it, it's naturally variable in abundance. In the four year rule states that in a four year period you could expect one very good crop to occur, and maybe to sort of fair to midland years and one year. That's going to be near failure. And Dean late, and he can county. Minnesota's one. That I often think about here as we look at the lake each year. You never know what you're going to see when you fly up to it some years, it's open wire. Other years it looks like a gigantic heat-sealed and some years now with a disease that we're seeing more frequently associated with climate change Brown back. It looks like a Brownfield instead of the vibrant Greenfield the failure read on Dean leg in the last dozen years, or so is approaching fifty percent, and that really stands such a stark contrast to that t k ruled traditional ecological knowledge of the elders. You mentioned fungal disease I understand. That's become a problem. How is that connected to climate change? So the one that really most concerned about is a thing called Brown spot disease. Is a fungal disease, it's been around for a very long time, but it likes warm wet, humid conditions that are becoming more and more frequent, so we're in the past it sort of seemed to occur now and then here and there We're starting to see years where it has theory large regional outbreaks, and it's a real problem, because when the answer badly infected by this, the seeds germinate the plants girl that they are not able to produce, eat themselves, and so they're not replenishing that seed bank, and they're not providing for for human harvesters, or for all the myriad while species and also benefit and utilize wild rice.

"They typically have lower overhead which means they get to pass the savings along to customers in the form of higher interest rates. But I will say that. Local community banks and credit unions can offer very competitive CD rates when they're trying to attract more deposits. So you really need to shop around to find the best rate now. Let's talk about something called. Cd Ladder Ring. This is a common strategy to maximize earnings by using multiple CDs. Lateran just like you know crawling up a ladder you buy CDs with different maturity dates an annual yields each one represents a rung on a CD quote Unquote Ladder. That goes from shorter terms of two longer terms. So imagine that you bought a hundred thousand dollar traditional five-year CD. Paying one point. Seven five percent now. Think about how bummed out you'd be if you put all that money into a five year CD you locked it up and in interest rates went up. They went up to two point seven five percent. So you're missing out on a whole percentage point on your money if that happened. Let's say the following year you'd be missing out on earning more interest because you locked up your money at the lower rate at one point seven five percent for five years and you can't make a withdrawal without paying a penalty lateran. You might choose to buy five CDs with that hundred thousand dollars instead of just one for instance you could buy a twenty thousand dollar one year. Cd A twenty thousand dollar two years CD. Twenty thousand dollar three years CD and so on up to a five year CD after one year when the very first CD reaches maturity you could use all or a portion of the money to purchase another five-year CD so as your shortest CD matures. You can use that money to buy a longer term. Cd that presumably has a higher interest rate so this technique of lathering protects you against missing out on higher returns if interest rates do rise. You're going to get more money and get greater flexibility at the same time as each. Cd matures you've got the option to renew it at the current rate or to use your money for something completely different so you can use a CD.

"The minimum amount required to open a CD is generally five hundred dollars but it could be much higher depending on the institution and the type of CD that you buy and you can put an unlimited amount of money into a CD but to be safe. What I recommend is that you always stay under the FDIC or the NC. You a limit that I spoke about the two hundred fifty thousand dollars and that limit is per account holder per institution. So if you've got more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars you might want to spread it out at different institutions. So let's talk about what the downsides are of getting a CD that you know. The upside. Is I mentioned is a guaranteed return? The downside is that your money is locked up for a specific term that might range from a few months to maybe five years. So you get to choose the term when you're purchasing the CD and when that term ends you get back you're principle plus the accumulated interest? Cd's with longer terms generally yield the highest interest rates. However if you need the money and you need to withdraw money from a CD before it expires and that expiration date is known as the maturity date in that case you typically must pay a penalty and the penalty amount is typically calculated as an amount of interest depending on the terms so for example a one year CD might charge the equivalent of three months worth of interest if you dip into it so it's crucial to be sure that you will not need to withdraw any amount of money before the maturity date when you're buying a CD. So I mentioned that there are different types of CDs. There are some with a fixed term and interest rate..

"It was a very ugly story. And also like I said a warning not just to companies, but to consumers that be aware that anytime you are. Introducing anything to your computer. There are the their possible vulnerabilities, you could be introducing and some cases it could be really really intrusive. So you gotta be careful now this is not to say that the decline of the compact disc was instantaneous that the CD form factor when obsolete overnight it's stuck around for a really long time. In fact, it's only been fairly recently that some of the larger retailers have kind of moved away from selling CDs in the winter of. Two thousand eighteen retailer best buy announced that it was going to stop carrying compact discs in its stores starting on July first two thousand eighteen target. Meanwhile, when a slightly different route, they said they would continue so compact discs, but they would do it on consignment. So in other words, instead of ordering a large inventory of CDs and trying to sell them, you know, paying for that inventory trying to sell the CDs. And then if they didn't sell stock they would send it back to the the studio for credit for future stock instead of doing that. Now target says no here's how we're going to do it. We will sell copies of CDs. And for every copy we sell will send a little bit of money back to the studio. But otherwise, we're not doing it. So if you don't wanna work with us on that, you're not gonna have your CDs. Hell he'll carry it in our stores because people are buying so few of them now and it puts the risk of inventory on the music studios. Right. Other than on targets stores, and it just changes where the the the risk ends up falling that change has continued. Right. And really you could say that the writing was on the wall by two thousand fourteen when digital music sales over the internet were eclipsing CD revenue and even then digital was on the decline. It wasn't. It was already on the downward slope it had peaked at at that point. And was it was outperforming CDs, but both CDs ended it'll sales were starting to to lag behind like I said a moment ago in our next up Assode, we're going to explore the rise of the digital file Arab which leads into what we're seeing today with consumption moving more towards streaming services rather than downloading tracks or buying physical media. One thing. I want to shift you before I end this episode would be the evolution of video media in the wake of the D, the digital versatile disc or DVD evolved from the compact disc, it was effectively the second generation of the CD technology, even as companies like Sony and Philips were trying to get the D into the consumer market. They were simultaneously researching how to improve that technology in order to store even more data on it, including video with sound. That development would mostly happen behind closed doors for a little more than a decade among various companies by the mid nineteen nineties. There were two formats that had emerged from our indeed departments they weren't on the market yet. But they were almost ready and one was with Sony and Philips they had developed technology that they called the multimedia CD or M C D. Meanwhile, you had another group that. That was including the Time Warner group and to Sheba, and they had developed a different approach called these super density or SD disc. Neither side was eager to engage in an all out format war like the one that pitted. Betamax versus VHS and fractured the market. So instead, they decided that they were going to work together to develop a common standard between them, and it was mostly based off the SD format from two Sheba this became the DVD and by nineteen Ninety-six companies were starting to produce DVD players, which originally went on sale in Japan, and then expanded from there and like CD players when they first came out they were pretty darn expensive. But it actually the the path for DVD to hit widespread adoption it happened much more quickly than CD players did like a CD player..

One of the big reasons or actually two of the big reasons, why CD's weren't lucky was a double whammy it was in the form of computer advances and the development of audio compression file formats, primarily the MP three. We'll go into more detail about MP threes and other file formats and our next episode, but they definitely hurt CD sales. As time went on in two thousand the music industry. Saw a decline in CD sales in every year after that that decline continued and it got more dramatic in an effort to fight off the inevitable and also to combat piracy as computers were getting better at ripping music from CDs and writing it to a different disk companies began to incorporate digital rights management or DRM on their CDs. The idea was that this DRAM would limit how you could actually use the compact disc Sony's B M G music label did this. To disastrous results. It's one of the the big warning signs warning stories of DRM and unintended consequences or potentially unintended. Some argue that they were completely intentional consequences, which makes it even worse. So what was this all about? Well, let's say you go out and you buy an album that was from Sony's BMG label, and this is around two thousand five or two thousand six you buy the CD and you put in a normal CD player. Well, it would work just the way it was supposed to no problems there. You're just putting it in stereo system. Or maybe your car a little portable CD player. Whatever it works, just fine. However, if you were to put it into your computer, either to listen to it or maybe you wanted to rip a copy. So that way you had a backup something like that. Something else happened. There were some code on the disks that would prompt your computer to automatically install some software on your PC. The purpose of the software. At least the stated purpose was to prevent someone from making unauthorized copies of that compact disc in other words to prevent people from pirating the music, but the software also opened up a back door vulnerability on the person's PC. Meaning it was possible for a third party to infiltrate that computer and take control of it. In fact, essentially, what was happening was the CD was prompting the computer to phone home to Sony BMG's servers and to give information about how the person was using that CD. What was there? What were there? Listening habits. It was kind of spying on the consumer. And you could argue that the Sony B M G D RAM software was behave. Like, malware, like, a Trojan horse or backdoor vulnerability the discovery of the DRM led to class action lawsuits and a lot of pressure from the industry and eventually Sony would stop the practice completely by two thousand seven it was not a pretty picture..

"To the future it factors into the plot in the original back to the future. Anyway, by the mid nineteen eighty s Sony was trying to replicate the success of the walkman with a CD player. And the result was the disc, man. D fifty the world's first portable CD player. And while the d fifty had some shortcomings, it truly was an amazing technological achievement. See the D fifty was small, and it was about the size of maybe five or six CD cases stacked on top of each other. So that meant all the circuitry and all the components of a full-size CD player needed to be shrunk down to fit this tiny form factor. And this was just a couple of years after the full sized version of a CD player had come out. So it's hard to explain exactly how challenging this was. But here's an example, the optical path for the laser was a huge obstacle to work around the size, constraints Sony engineers had to figure out how to fold the optical path to make enough space for it to have the laser position in the right way for the disk on top of that the engineers had to custom build all the circuits. For the deficiency to both fit inside this small case and not immediately drained the batteries of all their juice, even so the d fifty was pretty power thirsty gadget as walkman central a fund website has explained you could buy a battery holder that would plug into the defeat to supply the electricity would.

"Once those price tags are more in line with our own personal budgets, some thankful for early adopters. I don't quite make the money to be won most the time anyway in the first year of sales Sony, sold twenty thousand CD players, which is not an enormous number. But it was significant for a brand new technology those going head to head with vinyl and the emerging cassette market and other companies besides Sony and Philips began to make players as well. And it's here that I mentioned that the first CD title, according to some sources wasn't Abba, nor was it a symphony. But was rather Billy Joel's album. Fifty second street in the last episode. I mentioned Abba and classical music were the first albums pressed to CD other sources call Billy Joel's album, fifty second street the first CD album. And then the guardian said. Says the first album recorded specifically with the CD medium in mind was dire. Straits brothers in arms in nineteen eighty-five. So it may well be that all of these are true to some extent that Abba. And the symphony were pressed to CD that fifty second street was it debuted. And then one of the formats debuted on was the CD and that brothers in arms came out specifically four CDs and was engineered for that purpose. Maybe that's what it all means. All I can tell you is that history tends to be complicated. And there are a lot of stories out there that at least on first glance seemed to contradict each other. Well, nineteen Ninety-three the music industry. Racked up sixteen point seven million dollars in CD sales. That's a lot of cash but vinyl albums were bringing in one point nine billion dollars that same year. So nearly two billion compared to CDs at sixteen point seven. Cassette tapes were not that far behind vinyl in nineteen eighty three and the following year and eighty four cassette sales surpassed, vinyl and kept going strong and CDs were laying the foundation for future success. So this is what kind of set the tone at least in the United States for vinyl to go on the decline. Cassettes to rule the eighties and for CDs to be well positioned to take over after that Sony, even tried to get a jump on portable CD players in the very very early days of the technology back in nineteen seventy nine Sony had released the walkman, they portable cassette player that was a popular accessory in the nineteen eighties. Just watch any comedy from the nineteen eighties or set in the nineteen eighties. And you'll likely see one, you know, like back.

"A pop in really better like that band before you plop. Down the cash for their latest album. I found a review for the C D P one a one player online which revealed some other interesting tidbits, for example, the prototype model that Sony had shown off earlier played discs vertically with the playing surface parallel to the front of the player, the CD P one one went with what would become the more traditional orientational for most CD players with a horizontal tray that would slide out to accept a CD before sliding back into the player. The review also went into how the CD would allow you to do things that you couldn't do with other types of recorded media and allows you to to skip to specific tracks or sometimes they called him bands on the CD not bands as in musical bands. But bands and bands of of recording so track one track to or band one Bantu made it really easy to select a specific passage or song on the CD. And it also. The review marvelled, and how you could quickly skim through a track, and you could hear a sped up version of the music as you were going through either fest sporting or rewinding, but while it was sped up. It didn't increase in pitch. You know, if you increase the the rotational speed of turntable than the pitch of the record increases as well. Something that lead to never ending hours of entertainment when I would put a thirty three rpm record on a turntable but switched the turntable to forty five rpm. So that everything sounded like it was sung by the chipmunks. You really haven't listened to pink Floyd's the wall until you've listened to the chipmunks sing pink Floyd's the wall. Anyway, that didn't happen with CDs because it was an digital format. It wasn't an analog signal. That was being sped up and with a pitch increasing. It was literally just skipping through the digital file. So you would get the sped up. Effect. But the pitch remained the same. Another option that the review mentioned was the option to play a track on repeat the parenting that merited special mentioned because it's again, something that you could not easily do on vinyl or cassette. You could do it. Like, if you listen to a particular track on vinyl after that track is finished playing you could get up walk over to the turntable, gently lift the stylus gently move it back to the beginning of that track drawback down and listen to it again. 'cause that's where worse because you had to push stop hit rewind push play. Find out where you are in the track. Maybe you've gone too far. Maybe haven't gone far enough adjust that way, see these made it so much easier. You can just hit a little button. And it would repeat the song. You liked as many times as you want it until you got tired of it, and you told to stop happens to be baby shark might just leave it on for weeks at a time for your child. Anyway, the CD player really started to get popular in Japan pretty quickly and Europe followed not too long after that it took longer to get traction in the United States and part of that was just logistical because the manufacturing facilities for the players. And for the CDs were all in Japan, and those facilities were already chugging away to meet domestic demand that left very little breathing room to produce units for the US market. And in fact in the beginning, there are only two manufacturing facilities in the entire world. There were making compact discs, and they were each owned by Philips and Sony, and that price was a really big barrier. To like a lot of people were willing to jump in. There was a limited number of of material out there for the players and they were really expensive. Meanwhile, cassettes and records were relatively cheap. It would take some time for the price to come down for CDs to start to gain on cassettes. But boy Howdy. When it happened. It happened. Big time the demand for compact discs in Japan, led to more investment in the industry and soon there were six manufacturing facilities and not long after that it grew to forty manufacturing plants that were churning out compact, discs, the technology was gaining momentum. And with the increased output came improvements in manufacturing with more efficient processes, which led to a steady decrease in manufacturing costs, which meant companies could sell their products for less money, while still maintaining a profitable business..

It was right once writing right reasoning worm. So yeah, that was the thing is basically once you talked to the CD there forever flowing amber what we wanted. That's what we used it for. So thank you done in for creating something that became, I think, probably much larger than than ever envisioned that it could become. It was a game changer for the way we process our information got our content. I just games, interactive stuff, phone directories. Remember the phone directories on CD-rom was awesome. So I kept mine for many, many years before I finally taught the postcode database east coast Rama. I'm here in the UK you'd subscribe to it and then every three weeks they send you a new CD-ROM with the update and you'd load that until system and that like used to do address such by postcode nowadays, we do that on the internet, but back then you would. Subscribe to a service to get that, and you had to be a business to be able to register for that because you know it was just slot these security information, amazing technology. I wouldn't mind revisiting again someday. Maybe looking at some of the forgotten CD roms that were hugely influential or popular in are largely forgotten. Now for many, many years I subscribed to much of Technet which was a technical service allowing you to preview and do local instals of all the software that Mike self sold for development purposes. So you pay them a few hundred pounds a year. And basically every I think every month they sent you these folders full of discs, CD ROM discs. And then I had this big conduct a binder that they, they gave you when you signed up that you kept them and see you would throw away old ones replaced with new ones who's a fun time wasn't an and yeah, I had this massive bind full of own c..

I finally got rid of it. I'm I got rid of another one that actually was for the games. We gaze, which kind of copied from the original discs yourself. So I put the original discs away and I would use the copays and course they go scratch something and not yet there was about two hundred and fifty goes in that none of which I played anymore run.

No way you, you know, computers can generate multiple polyphonic sounds using genuine samples, and they have the power to make it sound like real easy. You didn't have that byte meant. So again, that was transformative the fact that you could have real music real speech recorded speech playing during a game, and you know the thing you talked about all the CD roms on the shelves. The reason for that was because it became a competitive alms rice won't. Everybody wants to see that could read the CDs quicker because that meant you had less gaps in the game because sometimes GD would get stuff so polls as it pulled data off the drive, or I remember playing missed originally on a to act CD ROM and you'd click something and you'd literally have to wait for the next pitcher to load isn't access the dust.

Is you end up with something sending Lanka headdress? Yes. What if you want to know kind of the origins of how people design websites and stuff like that. You need only look at the CD-rom craze because that is kind of where using hypertext like in mass or hypercard like messed, where you click something and something else comes up. Sound familiar. You do it every day when you're on the internet. Yep. But just the interactive where you put your mouse over something and something happens fluidly in in great graphics and all of that started with CD-ROM. So if you want to trace back where what we think is the modern web where it kind of originated from, I don't think you have to look any farther than designers who are creating some fantastic content like the the Star Trek onto PDR missed where it started or atom the inside story. You know, that's where it started. That's where the inspiration came from because they didn't have anything before that to work from. They started this whole kind of interactive graphics and you know, you click this, and this thing happens. That's where it started. And if you have, if you just want a very simple linear on the standing of how far we've come in twenty to twenty five years, CD ROM six hundred and fifty megabytes. Yeah. What now for about five dollars, you can get to kick a bite USB, flash drive. Yeah, it's amazing what what we do is society. Yeah, with the limited technology of the time. And for those who think we're kind of at the pinnacle now you have no idea. It's going to come and time very soon where physical media of any kind is irrelevant because this is going to be cloud based. Now, of course, congress just means bigger server farms and hard drive somewhere. You still need the physical thing, but on your desktop on your phone, you're not gonna need storage because it's going to be weird, have superfast networks where everything's just there. But this is I think, a hugely significant invention that probably is pooh-poohed as all that was this nineties thing as those kind of silly. No, the CD ROM was a massive industry. I remember when it collapsed, but I also remember when it really became popular and I don't think it gets enough recognition for. What it really led to. Yeah. And this is really only the loss.

But it was this encyclopedia of all the Star Trek goodness, you couldn't help, but be a fan of Star Trek. If you pop this in started exploring and there was hundreds of hours worth of content created for this. It almost felt like the ultimate fan website, if you will. It was amazing and also had interfaced get kind of made you feel you on the enterprise using a console on the address. Yeah, it was. It made other beeps and boobs and it was such a good disc, but as good as that was, there was one CD ROM that outshined everything else and everybody had a copy even if they didn't play it. And that's mostly because this desk the CD ROM disc was abundant for men, manufacturers in their external CD ROM dry. Lives as well as a lot of computer makers, including apple would include this in the box, and it was a game that was based around pitchers. There was no moving video to speak of. Not really. There was a couple black and white fuzzy ones on purpose, but it was pitchers in you move through this game by clicking something in the next pitcher would come up and it was beautifully rendered. It was unlike anything you saw before it was called Myst and Myst was amazing ahead. This ambient sound and the whole thing is a giant puzzle for older listeners. I guarantee you had a copy a messed at one time or another, whether you played it or not was irrelevant this. This was a game changer. There was never. It wasn't almo- almost wasn't a game. It was an exploration and it was just looking at stuff and moving around and there's the switches and there was nobody guiding you. Okay. You gotta do this, but you would discover these puzzles and to to solve a puzzle. You had to do something else. And it was laid out logically, it wasn't one of these things that, hey, remember in the first level we saw that. I don't know a block that didn't seem to do anything while I hope you picked it up and kept it because that's going to be the thing that you have to use to win this game. No, it wasn't illogical like that. It made sense. Yeah. The thing thing about missed. It was a game that just wasn't possible before the CD wrong. It wasn't absolutely. You know, you couldn't do anything because it was displaying pre random pictures. Rather than that, she's in the graphics hardware in the in the computer. It looks.

I just remember the sounds if someone turns this on and I can't see it and I just hear the sun. There was no, like musical score or anything.

You could have stereo sound kit that audience appropriate promptly rented audio tracks. All the CD as well, and then have the computer play those while it was displaying data.

You could see some audio clips or hear some audio clips. Video clips. There was movie history on it pitchers. It was like. Nothing. It was interactive. You can click things and things would have it was awesome. And it was stuff like that that expanded what you could do with your computer. The CD ROM was really one of the driving factors of making getting a home computer, a wise investment for a family yet because you had stuff like atom the inside story, remember that it was on every single shelf at every electronic store the dissect it, or you know the cutout skull get looking. I think it was doling Kinsley who did a whole load of very high quality interactive CD roms on various subjects. He human Baldi and space travel were coupled to take the remember. And the thing is well, is that what. Cdrom allowed people to do was before before that Kapito magazines had covered this and there were floppy. You're on. They had know they had a few programs. Everything was tiny when the CD ROM came out all of a sudden you could have full demos of new software that was demos of things a lot myself word and access and debates and things like that. The cut down versions of the whole piece of self west. You could try them out. They distributed whole copies of old operating systems. We'll CD-rom so you could try them our home. Remember this is pre internet. You could not fit most people. If you had a connectivity, had you had a fifty six k modem at best. You're just cook, don't download this stuff because it would take too long cost too much you would you'd be on the phone for two days and cost an with a two day coal. It was. It was just it was just not feasible, whereas the CD ROM allowed us to get this stuff. The the games that became very successful would distributors countdown trial versions. Try and encourage people to buy the Atra full game, and it goes a whole subset of people who who actually just never bought before game. They just play play today. The demolitions so forth, saying Romeo, some of the, some of the things that really kind of drove it, though it wasn't the promise of all the storage. It was the content. So while we applaud Dennen for creating the standard, a lot of different standards were created and never amounted to anything. This was different because as a society, we were already used to CD ROM. So this was something that was intimately familiar with us a. We had the storage capacity and you know, we understood this format. We, we have desks that we were already using. So we, we had the the sleeves at home. We have the shelves that were exactly the right size to hold the CD. Well, more importantly from distribution point, if you, you could tight y'all CD ROM image and have it pressed a commercial DSE depressing Plum. For pending being up to create CDs was the cost of creating for pre discs, which were versatile thing yet for software distribution of any kind, not just magazines, but if you have a program, you won't. So we're enormous. Whereas CD as you say, you could turn out in a very Cassini pressing is very quick. You could turn out a very large number of disks in a very short periods. Homage made a lot cheaper as well as the discs were physically bigger. So you could have a, you know, you can have all that dice roll, man. You could put what lots of extras on that you could put. I remember of software distributors would sell, sell you a program, but then there would be directly on the CD rom with trials of some of their other business. So you could try those get magazines CD roms that would have all these demos and QuickTime movies that you could watch interviews at the magazine did, and it was awesome. All of that is before as you mentioned the CD Risa was development of the sudden you start creating your own disks home. So to the big big things that I remember David.

"We went from on a clear. Remember this. We went from the common data storage, medium of the floppy disk of one point full full megabytes, Susan, nothing, which is nothing that's less than the photo on your iphone nowadays. Yeah. And you had to have whole programs? I remember getting copies of myself office from from my Safina was working in the in the mid nineties. Yeah, and it will come in like fifty-six, floppy disks you have you have to load. Prevailing. Those floppy disks were bad, which had. Yeah, and so that's kind of where we were, and then the CD ROM came out on the back of the CD audio disc and the CD ROM with basically was the same technology, but just storing pure dice set of audio streams. Six hundred and fifty megabytes. Yeah, and then they squeeze a bit more avenue. I think it my thinking logically went up to roundabout six, eight thousand seven hundred defending of your February was where kind of maxed out. And at that point we got the DVD, but let's concentrate on the CD ROM format. It was invented by Dennen for those who don't remember. I think Dennis still around, but Dalian's. Really high end audio manufacturer of component stereo systems that I didn't always made really good stuff. I don't know if I ever actually owned a piece of equipment, but I always liked their stuff was always cool, cool looking and I was letting the Nightline so then insanitary coal. Yeah, it did. It's a good one. So they invented this technology and unveiled it in eighty four alongside Sony, and it really did for those who don't remember it. There was a craze from the mid eighties little bit beyond that because I don't. It didn't take off right away, but just caught the end of the eighties through, let's say, ninety eight ninety nine somewhere in there. Ninety eight because ninety nine is when the DVD really started hitting big. So for not quite a decade, but almost a decade. CD-rom was the preferred. Method of getting content for computer users, and I remember going into circuit cities and best buys and places like that. Little computer shops looking at external CD ROM drives and. There were shelves full of content. I'm not talking about just games. There were games, but more importantly, there was all of this content that we would consider. Well, that would make more sense as a webpage. You're absolutely right, but there was no websites and there were all these interactive things that you could buy and and few in. You could also back up your own data. I remember getting my first CD ROM. It was built into a MAC and I immediately copied every single floppy drive that I owned onto my hard drive and immediately burned all of them to a couple of CD roms. But even that they Bill the ability to create your own CD's came lace. I remember my first CD ROM drive. I remember this quite vividly at bolt. This PC from a column kind of competes affair. And you know it was. It wasn't brand new, but you know, it was pretty good for the day, and I played doom and stuff like that on did a bit work on it and everything, but it didn't have a CD ROM drive. And I remember going with my first wife at the time to another competes affair. And you know, we sold the internal CD-roms there and they would. They wouldn't cheat. No. She said she said, oh, you know, you should buy one. I clearly remember taking that thing. I'm how it I was and fitting into my computer, and then I had some CD-rom covetously come with a couple of magazines I've been put in and how different using the computer was. Then you had someone, you know, people really kind of built on the fullness you. You did have streaming video on these very quality commensurable we have now on these discs, you had remember much soft cancer, the encyclopedia program or. Absolutely. Yeah. Which was like Wikipedia on the disk. Yeah. And that also had video and photos and stuff like that. Of course, it was. It wasn't great compared to nowadays because it was great compared to what we had at the time which you even though say, compare to it was great. It was fantastic.
