Our neighbor in the solar system switzer rushing to the other side of the top of your mouth brushing in tiny circles around each tooth. That robot that we spied on the surface of mars came from earth cleanest curiosity and now sent it from earth to mars to find out if there ever was or could be life on mars. Curiosity is the size of a car. That has six wheels and a long robotic arm curiosity even as a camera for taking selfies on mars. Someday nasa hopes to send humans to mars to. Maybe someday you'll be able to take a selfie with curiosity so what you're brushing to the bottom of your mouth but don't brush too hard ready for your next is by floating through space. I see a bright light shooting pass. It looks like a ball of dust but behind it. I feel long tail. Streaking into the sky. What do i spy shouted out a comet.

Pieces of orbiting space junk 'avoid collision'

"In addition to millions of pieces, space junk like used rocket stages, parts of spacecraft and old broken satellites. There are roughly three thousand working satellites orbiting the earth and more about to join them as part of a single mission to give more people access to broadband Internet, it's called starling. It's being launched by the spaceflight company space x and it could add between twelve thousand and thirty thousand satellites to low earth orbit. Here's CNN ten contributor Chris James Chris. Hey Carl on the clearest of nights I love looking up into the sky to see if I can spot a satellite or space objects making its way across the dark horizon but experts are raising the red flag about. Problem that could change the future of space. As we know, the issue spaces getting too crowded for decades researchers have been worried that growing congestion and space could have devastating consequences. This theory is known as Kessler Syndrome, which says that if space traffic becomes too dense, one single collision between two objects could set off a catastrophic domino effect that would essentially turn the space around earth into an extra terrestrial wastelands. By the way, this was the main plot plotline in that twenty thirteen film gravity Robert Beck the CEO of Launch Startup Company called rocket lab says that his company is having a very difficult time finding clear paths for rocket to launch new satellites do the sheer number of objects. In space right now, especially, considering spaces rapidly growing starling constellation SPACEX has said that they are determined to being responsible stewards about or space, and the company has equipped starling satellites with the ability to automatically get out of the way just in case there are oncoming objects and once operational the SPACEX system could make Internet access available to the billions of people around the world who don't have it as exciting as that prospect sounds the odds of avoiding disaster only becomes slimmer with each new satellite launch according to one expert who says that he's optimistic that we can avoid Kessler Syndrome. So long as these companies agreed to abide by certain rules and norms of

"To the airport just out of sight. She. She got ticket and she went to Venice and she was photographing him from a distance and it's all these sort of you know photos of the back of his head. and. So and you know her whole practice is very. voyeuristic it's about trying to get to know people based on the ephemera of their lives She has another piece from the following year called the hotel where she works as a cleaning person hotel in goes through strangers, things and tries to know everything find out everything she can about them. and. So these are these are like highly conceptual character based pieces about. I mean to me the longing to to no strangers stories based on the little pieces that. You see of them out in the world, and so I wanted I mean I've always been interested in audio as a format for performance art as the deliverable for performance art. and so I was interested in doing something similar where I also chose a stranger and followed them. and Veto County. Is famous performance artist. He also had a piece in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine. That was literally called following peace. And he has a quote about it where he says I almost not an eye anymore because I put myself in the service of this scheme and that was what I ended up achieving at certain moments of this piece where like I wanted to forget myself because I was so immersed in another person's life like I wanted that feeling 'cause being an I is so lonely and so by like committing to Sophia the obsession with Sophia for six months I did lose myself in it and I did need an obsession at that time and I do think of Obsession as a cure for depression. Is there anything else that you think of when you think about? What gave you fuel when you were working through this piece Totally I mean it's such such a private. It almost is a lonely experience until the pieces released because you're so alone in this obsession with this person. But the the book nausea came to me. Through an artist friend. Named nerve on Malek it's a bit of a cliche like a little embarrassing to be like reading I don't Know College Kid Discovers existentialism but like. It's we need that you know. It's very earnest. But, my Ervan Malek, his entire career has been based around an obsession of perfect moments and and he's been working on a one second film for twenty five years and. And he actually is the one who told me about nausea because it mentions perfect moments and in nausea there's a there's a thread of. Of Him trying to find perfect moments in the city and That definitely. Is Very present in the piece actually nerve I another friend we text each other perfect moment from every day as a practice Oh and So. That was definitely inspiring me because I feel like Sophia some people orient themselves their lives in a way to create and find perfect moments and the way nerve lives his life. He definitely does that and I try to as well because we have this practice and and Sophia does that too I mean she on the corner she's. Looking for perfect moments and she's trying to create perfect moments and I tried to capture those in the peace and a perfect moment could be you know someone it could be as simple as someone smiling back to her who had smiled the five days previously. Or? A moment of standing in the sun when the sun hits you perfectly. And there were a lot of those Najah and and so like and. Sophia and I had perfect moments in our conversation and so in a way that piece felt like stringing together the perfect moments. Create the ultimate perfect moment. What was your perfect moment yesterday that you texted? I can like literally can literally pull it up. I had so many had a few realizing that I. Don't like bananas finally like just admitting that myself like one of yesterday's perfect moments. Like this guy has small crush on like texted me saying I, did it like he liked a radio made. But a moment can be perfectly terrible as well. Oh. Yeah, like sometimes when things go so perfectly wrong like all at once it's like, wow, this is perfectly horrible but. It's still perfect. I have one more question for you and that is an. Are. You in. Sofia still in touch. We. Are Stone touch, of course. I stay in deep touch if that's a phrase with people when I do like really long. Pieces about them like this. She sends me photos of herself like all decked out like her latest outfits. You know. In all her P P for the pandemic updates on when she moves corners, I always hear about it. You know and just like being a crossing guard in pandemic as a whole new chapter, and so she tells me about how she's still crossing kids to come get their lunches from school, but it's not quite the same. That sort of thing. So yeah, we definitely like. Sh you know I think she still feels lonely. You know especially in the pandemic, it's really hard and she can't hang out with you know normally she sees kids and babysits and that sort of thing, and so we keep in touch, but it's not like it's not nearly to the degree that it used to be just like a check in every couple of weeks.

"All winter long I kept visiting the corner. I sat on a bench in my big red coat Sofia said I looked like a big glowing flower. The repetition on the corner was starting to feel like a meditation. I really loved being there. After a while, I knew all the regulars. And the morning unfolded like a choreographed dance. It began with the fully loaded food carts waking up in their lot across the street. And their drivers guiding them over the crosswalk with no control. This thing is like a big boulder coming down a mountain enter the old Italian man who shouts I love you. I love you. When? And then Oh this meals on wheels. Turkey Bean Chili is launched. That's right. Yeah. Turkey Bean Chilean rice I couldn't eat that. Then the police car I wave to police cars but. Don't wave back to me, but that's okay. We're at the bottom of the totem pole. Then the three dogs that she's named after the three tenors and you look like Carolina's the kids who don't like to be crossed rebel number two. Yes victory the mom who always late Lord have mercy on her heart. Perhaps she works the shift. She has rituals with many of the kids and when she misses one, they're looking back and hoping that I'll catch their I. It's it's heartbreaking. Actually there's drama the guys were supposed to come and pave the road and somebody had stolen their machine. How could you? Right? I, mean you you just hot wire that thing and drive away like an. Of course there are trucks Oh my goodness, I love trucks. It's kind of like being in a world of giants. They have their own atmosphere traveling with them. Basically, there's some of them are so hot. It's like a weather system and all if I see a woman driving a truck. Oh, forget about right I mean that's the best, and then what is not to love about a car on top of a truck On the corner, I would lean against the big blue mailbox in the sun with my headphones while Sofia talk to me through her microphone from the crosswalk. I saw some people staring at her. Wondering if she was talking to herself. Standing here this morning and I realized well two things. Tie? The first thing is nature nature Do you know the thing about the eternal return? Okay. So He says a great way to think about your life. Is that you for everything every decision you're making everything you do you say to yourself? What if I had to live this life? Exactly the life that I've had. Eternally just over and over like reincarnation but the same life. So then act nature reminded her of Komo and Komo reminded her of the myth of Sisyphus pushing a boulder up the hill. I'm starting to identify more with manual workers who work with their bodies and you know what? If you push a boulder up a hill all day, you're going to have a good sleep. You'RE NOT GONNA have problems with insomnia. Whining. And I think as a professor I was looking for some external meaning. That's right. Before becoming a crossing guard Sophia was an atheist philosophy professor. Working on my dissertation. Six days a week Good Morning, Columbia University PhD tenured philosophy professor at a university in. Brooklyn. I knew many people who had ascended the ladder of ambition. But rarely people who had voluntarily climbed down. I slowly unraveled the story of how Sophia went from married to divorced philosophy professor crossing guard and atheist a Catholic. Since she was a kid. She never knew what she wanted to be when she grew up no job felt right no vocation called her all I could get was a big black cloud of nothing. She did the philosophy PhD to please her parents. But when she got the job, she developed depression and chronic fatigue. Just, skip until I quit my job as a professor her husband had the income to support them both and health insurance. Her days were suddenly free. And she started thinking about what she really wanted to do in the world. Then one day in the middle of the week she noticed her neighbor in the lobby looking very dressed up beautifully resplendent in this Silk Sari with brocade embroidery and it was a Tuesday at eleven forty five. Am the neighbor said she was going to amass across the street and invited Sophia and she just had this look of happiness like she's like I'm going from my mass. You know I love my mass knows like. You it belongs to you what you know and Sophie is like, okay. Daily Mass will help me get out of bed when I'm unemployed. It's just a social practice just like anything else like a book club. Or like a workout When she got there, it reminded her of a philosophy class. The Monday to Friday crowd is like the graduate seminar. And The Sunday masses like the undergraduate intro class. That's basically what it is. Then, she became obsessed with a priest holding the Eucharist. The way you was looking at this little way for like it was his baby and she was like. You don't actually think Jesus is in the wafer do you he said not only do I all Catholics in the world believe that But it happens to be true. was like watching the X. files like the truth is out there. And then she's like. Well. What if I allowed myself the possibility to think it might be true if he's outside of time and space he can do anything it would be easy for him to go into a piece of wafer. He can go into wine he can go into way for you to do anything he wants to he's God. And my mind just kind of cracked open the door to. If this is true. Then Look how interesting the world becomes. Then she started getting Eucharist envy. She wanted to taste the wafer and when she finally did I've only been high on marijuana a couple of times. That's the closest thing I can think of, and it was kind of like you know like the world has all these sharp edges and pokey things and nothing really hurts as much as usual..

"I realized that churches are places we're strangers gather. Where people often come alone. I figured all I had to do is find someone sitting by themselves and try to sense if they were also lonely. So I started going to a bunch of religious gatherings in New York. Looking for my stranger. I went to quaker meetings on. Spiritual Reading Group on Mondays and daily Mass during the week. I didn't tell my parents I was doing this because they hate religion. and. For this exact reason, I found it very alluring. At, church sat down in a pew knocked my water bottle over. The church services were often boring, but it was the coffee hour afterward that I relished. A group of US would gather in the corner of a huge basement. It looked like someone had booked venue too big for the size of a party. We huddled around Coffee Cake Lipton Tea, and Stale bagels. I talked to an old man wearing a wig. Amid a nine year old who had written a poem. Dated at Twenty Nineteen Ad I interviewed businessman on Wall Street while the Earth is compared to Jupiter and a former non files shareholder resolutions there's a quaker even the beans were in color coordination. But none of them felt, right. The process was like dating. I didn't know exactly what I was looking for, but I knew I hadn't found it. Weeks went by. And then one day at a Catholic reading group. A middle aged woman company. I. Couldn't tell her age could have been anywhere between forty and sixty. I saw her bending down to play with the kids. Even, getting on the floor with them. It always admired people who could play with other people's kids. I went up to talk to her and she told me about making necklaces how the beads came alive to her. And then she told me that she's a school crossing guard. The people on the street who eight to see us, but we never really stopped to see them. I told her I was a radio producer that I wanted to interview her about her life. She seemed unsurprised. She immediately said yes. Maybe she too was ready for adventure. I rode my bike to her apartment in downtown. Brooklyn on a Saturday afternoon. It was a crisp bright fall day. I took the elevator up to the sixth floor of her apartment building and stood for a in the hallway. Test. I felt nervous. Awkward. I don't like rolling tape when I first arrive but I, did it anyway hello. You're waiting expectantly. Kuku clearing. Technique really. I thought you were just like dressed up and ready to go well that too but I don't have to cool. No, that's fine. That's totally. took off my shoes started looking around the living room and I'm just going to light a candle an I'm to pray. And I would invite you to say anything you want to okay. So, you're GonNa pray out loud YEP YEP awesome. Okay God. Sorry I forgot about you. And thank you for the tingles that I received in my body this morning. That was nice. And I just want to say thank you for sending Bianca to me. Thank you for helping me Tell the truth would you like to wish for anything or Yeah I'm grateful that Sophia is trusting me with her story and willing to be vulnerable with me and I hope that an exchange I can. be. A trustworthy. Keeper of her words. Turn trapped somewhere in this electronic file but have the potential to help someone else who might be lonely. And I hope one day they reach. that person in their time of need. This idea they got had sent me to speak to her I didn't really believe it. But on my way over I've been feeling some doubt about interviewing random lonely people. So this confidence from God was kind of Nice to hear. Fine I'm just gonNA listen to it. So feel lived in a one bedroom apartment it looked pretty clean but then she told me I spent about three hours cleaning up before you came over. Yeah total honesty. So refreshing, we were sitting on the couch in her living room and the interview had unofficially begun. One of the reasons I love podcasts and radio is because I can do it while I'm cleaning up because I realized that when you live alone having a voice makes you feel like you're with other people. And It helps me fall asleep and it helps me wake up in the morning. I don't like to listen first thing in the morning, but then when that first loneliness comes. Just, being able to listen to I mean I love audiobooks as well but I like radio pieces better. And like the moth and Deaths in money we were thirty minutes entire conversation, and when Sophia told me about listening to podcasts she had almost been crying and I wasn't sure why So I gently tried to circle back around I don I noticed it was like emotional to talk about. So I wanted to talk about why was emotional? Because I lived here with my husband and I was married for. Ten years, and then he asked me for a divorce three days before my baptism. So I'm him a lot. And In. Some ways. I. Feel like maybe I got married. To just have somebody. With me all the time. Do. Goes Chatter No. It seven am. Sophia has agreed to let me put a wireless microphone on her while she does her crossing guard duties. Crouched wearing headphones thirty feet away. She's five foot one, forty, eight years old standing on a street corner in. Brooklyn. Memo book in her pocket. Excellent Posture Do For her one of the joys of being a crossing guard is dressing for the weather. Today, blue cargo pants detachable hood in whistle along yellow raincoat. Say You. She sings in Latin to pass the early hours. And then the morning rush. Go whining. And whining good morning. Can you wait please wait for the light. Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Someone who's been to shot her. Watt I call her the purveyor of joy. She doesn't know that his friend is new or like this little girl where's your brother to wait for the light lot of Japanese parents good lining Ohio was. I. So feel loves languages.

The Internet, From Space

"The Internet, it's how we work how go to school, how we see friends and family. But not everyone has a good connection and that's where a few tech companies come in with a sort of modest proposal. What have we got our Internet from Outerspace Adam Clark estes deputy editor at recode wrote about this, and is here to talk about Adam. Surprising thing in your story that a lot of people probably don't already know is that a lot of listeners already get through Internet via satellite. That's how we get wi fi on planes for instance. So why hasn't this taken off more broadly satellite Internet has historically been and? Just. A little bit sub par When you compare it to terrestrial Wifi, you're down on planet earth. We have fiber optic cables which basically have limited bandwidth and to do satellite Internet. You're basically beaming connection from address Joe Network up to satellite and back down and technology just hasn't been good enough to to get with to enough people so that it compares to terrestrial broadband. Internet. You might get from a variety inner time Warner A, but that's starting to change with new satellite technology and would call constellations of satellites and has pandemic at all sort of raise the stakes for this work and made it. More, urgent less-urgent. Tell me about that depend epic is. Really accelerated development, and especially investment in the technology. Just after the pandemic started, it became incredibly clear that a lot of people don't have Internet access and they're being left behind young students who aren't able to get online for classes, people who aren't able to to to work remotely. So once it became so clear that solving this problem of Internet access was urgent a lot more investment went into Xilai. Broadband initiatives the number of launches went up quite a bit and I. Think, we're GONNA see that investment continue and more these networks go online in the near future Gotcha. So who exactly is trying to do this? What are the different companies that see a future in? Internet for space, the two companies being talked about both right now our space x and Amazon both of them are launching what are called low earth orbit constellations into space this year, and in addition to them, there are companies that have had satellites These are the companies that. You. Probably. Use to get a connection on a plane or a train and via sat and Hughes two big players in that space and part of the idea is tabby satellites be sort of a low orbit, right? So there are two main types of satellite broadband setups. One is geosynchronous satellites geosynchronous satellite. Okay. So A geosynchronous satellites as above one place on earth and spins with the earth so that it can be connected down to to anywhere on the surface at any given time. The second kind and this is sort of the the newer more exciting type according to some. This is what spacex, Amazon or doing. These are called low earth orbit satellites. Geosynchronous satellites are thousands of miles above the earth surface low orbit satellites. However, as the name implies are much closer, they might be as little as three hundred miles above earth surface. I think it SPACEX, they're going to be about three, hundred and. Forty miles above the surface, and that means that the distance that the signal has to travel is much less, which means you get lower latency that means you won't get a lag on a connection and because there are a lot of different satellites, Elon Musk, and spacex say that you'll have a bandwidth that will be able to compete with terrestrial broadband and even fiber optic networks, Gotcha and SPACEX and Amazon are doing this. I assume just because there's money to be made right I. Mean I got think. There's a bounty at the end Elon. Musk has said that he just wants to get into the business and he wants to disrupt the telecom business and he believes that he can make enough money doing. So to help fund his mission to colonize Mars. Amazon hasn't said that much about why they're doing it It might also be just to get into the telecom business in compete in an industry that is is fairly monopolized. Others have hypothesized at Amazon wants to get into the satellite broadband business because then they could be their own first customer, Amazon web services, of course, offers a lot of cloud computing technology and the ability. To be connected to the Internet anywhere on Earth, could do a number of different great things, aws. Got It. So the answer is a mix of just straight up capitalism money to be made if we don't make it someone else will, and then another incentive is that this could be pretty synergistic with the main business and I'd add a third thing and and everybody mentions this. Bridging the digital divide is not only good for business. It's sort of good for mankind connecting more people to the Internet stands to have great unforeseen benefits space experts didn't says. The connecting people that previously could not get Internet access in parts of the rural United States and southern Canada. Like the Pacific Northwest Region is where they've had Beta, testers and I think that a lot of different companies have really pursued the dream of satellite broadband because it can reach people in areas that no one else can these are areas that aren't served by big telecom companies where there aren't fiber optic cables and in fact, would be expensive to build that infrastructure that no one has ever going to do it.

Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?

"Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. So that's the lead. In this is in reporting from New York Times Sunday afternoon by investigative reporters Russ Butner Suzanne Craig, and Mike Macintyre now Russell Suzanne incidentally or two of the three that dropped the huge story on trump's finances in October of two thousand, eighteen ahead of the midterm elections. and that was fueled by the financial documents provided by Mary trump who is now suing the president and his siblings by the way for defrauding her out of millions of dollars. But back to today's story from the New York Times quote. The New York Times has obtained tax return data extending over more than two decades for Mr Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. This article offers an overview of times findings. Additional articles will be published in the coming weeks. So this one, hundred and ninety two paragraph long story is an overview of the times findings. this is the sparks notes the abridged version the Reader's digest abridged story. And I'm GonNa go over the key highlights with you. Hundred Ninety two paragraphs is the overview of what they found. And they're going to be releasing multiple stories in coming weeks for details about what they've uncovered an important caveat here by their very nature, the filings will leave many questions on answered. These tax returns that they got many questions will be unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the irs not the findings of an independent financial examination they report the trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth nor do they reveal any previously on reported connection to Russia? This kind of makes sense why Sivan's needs the documents, right These data simply report revenue not profit in two, thousand eighteen for example, trump announced his disclosure in his disclosure that he had made at least four, hundred, thirty, four, point, nine, million dollars. The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line forty seven point four, million dollars in losses. So he announced his disclosure, he made four hundred and thirty, five million. In here it says he lost forty seven point four million. To that's what he filed his taxes as. All of the information that times obtain was provided by sources with legal access to it. So we can. Try to guess. WHO This to the New York Times prior to the election maybe somebody on the case who knew that the case wouldn't be Sort of we wouldn't see any fruits of that until after the election. I don't know I'd be guessing. These tax data examined. by The Times, provide a roadmap of revelations from write offs for the cost of criminal defense lawyer a mansion used by the family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars that the president received from the twenty thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. So that's kind of a Russian dealing. The apprentice may trump a total of four, hundred, twenty, seven, point, four, million, which he then invested in a collection of businesses that we're failing mostly golf courses. They steadily devour cash much as the money he secretly received from his father the and how that financed spree of quixotic overspending that led to his collapse in the ninety. the picture that perhaps emerges most starkly from the mountain of figures and tax schedules prepared by Mr Trump's accountants accountants. MAZAAR. Clue. Probably got this from the Manhattan Da Somebody there. This is the picture that emerges starkly is of a businessman president in a tightening financial vice. Most of trump's core enterprises from his constellation of golf courses to conservative magnet. Hotel in Washington I guess it draws conservatives. They all report losing millions if not tens of millions of dollars year after year. His revenue from the apprentice and from licensing deals drying up and several years ago he sold nearly all the stocks that now might have helped him plug holes in his struggling properties and tax looms. And within the next four years more than three, hundred, million in loans and obligations for which he's personally responsible personally will come do. Over the next four years. And these records show the actual and potential conflicts of interest created by trump's refusal to divest himself of his business interest. While in the White House his properties have become havens for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials, and others seeking facetime access or favors. The record for the first time, put precise dollar figures on these transactions. Here's some examples at the Mar, a Lago Club, a flood of new members starting in two thousand fifteen allowed him to pocket an additional five, million a year from the business people paying for access at his Durrell Golf Course in Miami. The roofing materials manufacturer GIF spent at least one point, five, million in two, thousand, eighteen even has as its industry was lobbying the trump administration to rollback egregious federal regulations conflict. In two thousand Seventeen Billy Graham vandalistic association paid about four hundred thousand dollars to the Washington Hotel where the group held at least one event during its four day World Summit in defense of persecuted Christians. Then when he took office Mr Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president. Even. So in his first two years in the White House is revenue from abroad till seventy three, million dollars. And while much of that money was from his golf properties in Scotland and Ireland some came from licensing deals in countries with authoritarian leaning leaders or thorny geopolitics. For example, three million from Deteriora- from the Philippines two point three, million from India and one million from Turkey. Now the data also contains. Revelations about the one hundred, thirty, thousand dollars payment to Stephanie Clifford Stormy Daniels. The, which is one of the focuses of the Manhattan da Subpoena for trump's tax returns. Another financial information another clue that that might be where they got this. However. They say that it has no new revelations, but there is kind of a revelation because trump has acknowledged reimbursing cohen. Who made the? Payoff. But the materials obtained by The Times did not include any itemize payments to Cohen. The amount however could have been improperly included in legal fees written off as a business expense which are not required to be itemized tax returns that says to me. That trump. Didn't make the payoff where he would have had to have itemize it. Which says to me. It was improperly recorded. As a business transaction. At for legal fees, which is another thing to Manhattan as looking at. Business fraud. Falsifying business documents. Now, no subject has provoked more intense speculation about trump's finances than his connections to Russia while the tax records revealed no previously unknown financial connection and for the most part lack specificity required to do. So they did shed light on the money behind the two thousand thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow at the subject of Enduring Intrigue Because of subsequent investigations into Russia's interference in two thousand sixteen. So basically what the time saying here is that there's nothing itemized here about Russia, but there wouldn't be because it's not required to be in tax returns but boy, did we see something interesting about the? Miss Universe Pageant in twenty thirteen. The records show that the pageant was the most profitable Miss Universe during trump's time is co owner and that generated a personal payday of two point three million dollars made possible by the Aguilara F- family at least in part who would later help set up the infamous twenty sixteen trump tower meeting. For. Officials seeking dirt on Clinton with Veselnitskaya who is now we know connected directly to the Kremlin. The record show that in two thousand thirteen to paget reported thirty one point six, million in gross receipts. That's the highest since at least the nineties allowing trump and his co owner NBC's split the profits of four point seven million by comparison trump and NBC lost two million on the deal the year before. Moscow and made three point eight million from the one the year after. So it appears the Russia one. Made money and made a lot of money a lot more money than it ever has before. So did. Russia overpaid trump for this event. Wonder why? In Two thousand, thirteen?

Why South Asia's COVID-19 numbers are so low

Why South Asia's COVID-19 numbers are so low

"States is approaching five million covert 19 infections. We've passed 160,000 deaths. This virus has paralyzed the richest, most powerful country in the world. And we know this was preventable because at the same time and parts of the developing world countries with far fewer resource is have kept infection and death rates remarkably low. Rhonda's carried out nearly 180,000 tests. Since the start of the pandemic, Erica has applied a combination of mandatory social distancing. A strict lock down and wide scale testing. It's a strategy. We can learn a lot from these apparent success stories this week. We're taking a closer look at Southeast Asia along the Mekong River. As of this recording, five countries with a combined population of 243 million people have had fewer than 5000 cases of covert 19 and 72 deaths. The water Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar doing that the rest of the world finds itself unable to do in controlling this virus. Well, I think if we knew that answer for certain there would be epidemiologists and government officials from all over the world lined up on the door, trying to figure out the secret. That's Hannah Beach. She's Southeast Asia bureau chief for The New York Times. Race wars reached her at her home in Bangkok. And she says, there isn't just one reason that these countries have been so successful. I don't think there's anyone magic bullet, but there is kind of constellation of things that countries Thailand has done, which would seem right. First of all people started wearing masks very early, even when the W H O is dissuading people from doing so. Second of all, it's not really a touchy culture when people greet each other. They do what's called a Y, which is when you put your hands together like you're like you're in a prayer like motion. Sort of all hospitals are good health care's not prohibitive. You know, one of the things that people have been looking at that that it might be some sort of Innate resistance that has been built up, particularly in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam to the current virus. One of the theories that the people in Thailand are looking at is the way in which the novel Coronavirus Cove in 19 evolved. And it started off most likely in bats on DH. Then it went from bad to some sort of intermediary mammal, and then from that mammal to humans, there is there is some speculation, looking both that kind of the genetic origins of the current virus, but also looking at something animals that were at the wet market. In Wuhan, where the outbreak seems to have proliferated that the animal that was thie kind of intermediary animal between bats and humans might have been an animal that was indigenous to this part of Southeast Asia. And that it might have been a pangolin which looks like a kind of like an artichoke cross. Listen, armadillo. If it came from this animal, there is the possibility that something a precursor even this novel, coronavirus had been sort of floating around. In the ecosystem in this region for a long time, and that could potentially explain some sort of resistance that had been built up within the local populations here. And if you look at, for instance, in in southwestern China, which is very close to this region in the number of cases of Corona virus were very, very low. Compared to a place like Wuhan. So again, you know is this is this magic bullet That explains everything We don't know. But it's certainly a factor. That is that seemed interesting. That is interesting. Will you live in the region? You cover the region as you watch these numbers and as you watch the toll in the rest of the world Are you at all suspicious? Do you think these numbers of credible all of these places whether it's Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar If the numbers were so cooked if there were bodies lined up at the morgues. If there were mass graves, we would know there is social media. People talk, people whisper, and we would we would have an idea. S O. I think that's I don't think it's fair to say that the numbers are simply made up. I'm in Thailand right now has fewer than I think 3500 cases. Vietnam, which has had an uptick has fewer than 800 cases. This. Maybe it's off by a couple 100. Maybe if given off by a couple 1000 But if there were bodies at the hospital's piling up from a mysterious respiratory disease, we would know you've spent the duration of the pandemic in Thailand. Let's go back to those first weeks. In January, Thailand confirmed what was believed to be the first confirmed case outside of China. Around the same time the U. S experienced its first case is well. What happened in those earliest weeks? Well, it was interesting that this this first case Thailand has a very good kind of geological service, and in mid January, they confirmed that the Chinese tourists coming from Wuhan, China, which is where the outbreaks believed to have started Had had flown to Bangkok for holiday, which millions of Chinese do every year Bank office in fact, one of the world's most visited cities, and it's one the most visited by Chinese. And at that point, people in Thailand became nervous because there was a mysterious disease up north in China, and there were a lot of Chinese tourists arriving and one thing that didn't happen and we can kind of look back at this. And obviously it's hard to say we know we knew that this is going to be The deadly epidemic that it's become. But in the beginning flights weren't stopped two flights captain arriving from from Wuhan from China, and yes, there were efforts to try to much temperatures of people came in, but there wasn't really that much that was done. Fast forward a few weeks people of their own accord with with government advice started wearing masks and you know there's there's no no sense in Thailand that That wearing a mask is anything but good for public health. There was no there was no no sense that that was somehow infringing upon their individual liberties you've experienced since you there with the ties. Six weeks of pretty strict national locked down. Is it getting any easier now? What's day to day? Life like in Thailand? Now, can you send your kids to school? Can you eat a restaurant? Can you go into stores? You know, I talked to friends back in the states and I feel a little bit guilty because we started our lock down in March and then in Early April. Essentially all international flights stopped. Commercial flights stopped. And so we've been sort of under lock down for months. But beginning in June, the lock down started easing. So all the restaurants all the bars, all the massage parlors, all the all the kind of normal establishments, businesses have slowly been opening up. And now my life is pretty normal. Yes, I still wear a mask everywhere. My kids wear masks everywhere. But schools high schools are back in session on their social distancing. Now they have school kids have school every other week. They wear the masks. They have plastic dividers and things. But there's commerce on DH. There's there's kinda semblance of normalcy, which again makes me feel a little bit that when I speak to people in the U. S, because that's very different from From what? What Americans experiences. You know, we've gone more than almost three months without a case of of local transmission, which is remarkable their cases. Every day, but they're all in people who are coming back from ties were coming back from overseas, whether it's the United States or Europe or the Middle East since that strictest version of the lock down ended Did the economy bounced back is AH are some of the worst effects economically of the lock down starting to ease Because people are spending money again, People are making money again. That's the real tragedy of of Thailand. Thailand did a very good job of controlling the virus and making sure that it hasn't spread. But economists absolutely devastated and the reason is devastated. It's because it's a very tourism reliant economy anywhere. Between 20 and 30% of GDP comes from from tourism, and they're no tourists coming in. So you can. If you want to come on a beach holiday to Thailand, you can't do that right now. So that means that anybody who was a tour guide, our hotel operator restaurant operator. Millions of people have been put out of work. And so the Thai government's really kind of facing a difficult decision right now, which is you can open up. But then if you open up and try to save the economy, you might be also allowing the virus to come in and assistant. It's an issue that Many economies and in many countries are dealing with. But given the success the Thailand has had and being able to control the virus, you know, it makes it that much more. On fraud to even consider bringing people back in and

Dunkirk Awards

"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well

Waiting in Faith - Luke 2:25-32

"Luke chapter, two versus twenty, five, thirty two. Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the constellation of Israel and the Holy Spirit was upon him. and. had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came in the spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him, according to the cost of the law. Simeon took him up in his arms and blast God, and said Lord Now you are leading your servant depart in peace, according to your word for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all people's light for revelation to the gentiles, and for glory to your people, Israel. I love the story. Of Simeon even reading Luke. Shepherdess like Christmas in July, this is so good reading about Jesus birth, and then to come to the story of this man, who, for years was waiting for the constellation of Israel, who had been told that he would not see death before he had seen the Christ the Messiah the coming King just imagine that like day after day after day in your life waiting, waiting for this promise that is coming confident that his promise will come, but not knowing when that might happen. and then finally seeing the fulfilment of that promise what joy after years and years and years of waiting to have that joy rush to hold Jesus, Christ the Messiah and your hands. And I I read this and I. Just I think about. Different circumstances that different ones of us are walking through in a sense that we're all walking through in the middle of the span dimic waiting for it to subside waiting for a vaccine waiting for whatever resolution might come in the months year years ahead. Not Knowing when that will be like we're waiting I, think about. Who just in different ways you're awaiting like you're in a time where you long for something right now you have a desire for something right now, and you are having to wait. This is certainly been the case for us. As we were waiting to adopt our child, who we were just a few days away from going to pick up until Cova hit, and we have been waiting for months now and don't know how long the waiting will last, but I know we're not the only ones in that boat, and so we pray Oh God. We we confess we have a hard time waiting in many ways like we long for your blessing in certain ways like now God. We long in our family for this child to come into our home God. And I know, others are waiting in different ways longing for this or that longing for this person for relief from this struggle for your answer to this prayer, and so we pray as Simeon like way give us faith and hope and trust and strength and joy in the middle of the waiting. Even as we long for the day, when are waiting will be over in an ultimate sense. Jesus. We are waiting for your return. We long for your return. We long for you to bring an end to sin and suffering and death in this world so many ways. Oh God, we long for that day so bringing about we pray normally we wait with hope. We wait with anticipation for your return when you will make all things new and re praise you. That has been revealed to us that you are coming. I don't know if that will be before any one of US dies, but we know you're coming back with trust in you. We put all of our hope in U.. N. refined in even are waiting in this way we find joy then we find strength, which we find confidence for whatever the next day holds because we know that one day. All things will be made new, so we will wait with joy and trust with faith, and with hope in you, just like semi did day after day after day, and we look forward to the exhilaration to the rush. Wind are waiting will be over when we will see your face revelation twenty two four. And Behold Your glory, our faith turn to site. Hasten the coming of that day in grant us, we pray patients strength joy in the waiting in Jesus name, we pray.

James Montgomery Boice

"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history on this episode we will be in the twentieth century visiting with James Montgomery Boyce. Doctor Boyce was born on July seven, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, eight. He lived in a bedroom community of Pittsburgh. was quite a high school athlete. His Dad was a doctor and position voice for a fine education as a high school student voice was sent to the Stony Brook School and New York. He was mentored by Frank E. Gabe line, Biblical, scholar and theologian in his own right. Well after Stony Brook Voice went to Harvard for his undergraduate, and then he went to Princeton for his give. After that he was on his way to Basel for a PhD in theology while he was in Basel all there were a group of people who pressured him to start a Bible study, and he started a Bible study that became a church and to this day there is an evangelical church there in Basel that great, reformation city. And there's a church there founded by doctor. Boyce well. He graduated from Basel and Nineteen. Sixty six and two years later in nineteen, sixty eight, he was installed as the Minister of Philadelphia's Tenth Presbyterian Church near Rittenhouse Square on Spruce Street and Philadelphia Historic Church its. Spire went way into the sky, and its organ and its pipes could be heard throughout the city on a Sunday morning. Well in the nineteen seventies and nineteen, seventy, four to be exact Boyce started the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology. And in those early years people would gather there and intense church to hear John, Gersh ner and a young RC sprawl and J I packer and others, this constellation of reformed theologians in Nineteen, seventy, eight, a number of them joined together informed. The International Council for Biblical and A boy served as the chairman Dr. Scroll served as the President and see put out the Chicago statement on an errand see. They established themselves for a ten year run, and that was the life they had a voice also helped establish the Alliance for confessing evangelicals and nineteen ninety-four. That group stood strong against the evangelicals and Catholics together document, and took a stand for justification by faith alone well, in addition to those organizations. We have the books that doctor. Boyce wrote one of them. Foundations of the Christian faith is his systematic theology. It's billed as a comprehensive and readable theology. He also wrote renewing your mind in a mindless age, and another one of his books to cities to loves is subtitled Christian responsibility and a crumbling culture in addition to those books. He was known for his. Commentaries these of course grew out of his many sermons preached from Nineteen Sixty eight to the year two thousand from the pulpit of Tenth Presbyterian Church. She did a five volume series on John that was published a four volume series on Romans, two volumes on the minor prophets, three volumes on genesis and three volumes on the psalms. They're also commentaries on acts flippy in Nehemiah, Joshua Equations and Philippians and a few more books well Dr Voice was married to Linda. They had three daughters, nineteen, eighty, eighty-two Linda and Dr, Boyce. The city. Centre Academy School there in Philadelphia. On the morning of Good Friday, April twenty, one, two thousand Doctor Boyce was diagnosed with cancer. He died eight weeks later on June fifteen, two thousand. During those eight weeks he had one more thing to write in. There were hymns. He wrote thirteen in all. One of them is entitled Hallelujah. The other come to the waters, an invitation for all who have no money, but are thirsty, and those who have no funds about are hungry to come to the waters to come to the fountain to drink freely of Christ.

"Seven. Three comment Nah pasture some aleinu promenade San. Which means how are you? I'm feeling happy right now because we went for a walk this morning. That usually makes me feel relaxed. What makes you feel relaxed and happy? Maybe it's doing something kind for someone. We have a couple of kindness stories today from listeners who wanted to share about a time. Someone did something kind for them. I here's Abbie Hi my name's Adam. Sold. I live in Neil, you are. and. Reo. Kindness scarring. His one. Man Arrow on the beach. and. He brought the beach chair one for him I'm from me. and. I like him a lot. I think he's the best friend. I could keep. I miss played a area. My friend, I can't wait until of corona thing Lozo. Thank you avi. I'm sure Arielle misses you, too. He sounds like a very good friend and I can't wait for this. Over to. Thanks for sharing your kindness story abby. Now here's Amelia. I, my name is Amelia and I'm ten years old and I'm from Delaware and when someone showed kindness to me is where my mom helped me with my schoolwork, and I also love your show. I listened to it almost every night. Peace Out and peace within. Thanks Amelia. How lucky you are to have your mom able to help you with your schoolwork. Thank you for sharing. A lot of parents and caregivers are now having to do a lot more helping with online school assignments. There are many things that can be frustrating about being home right now. which is why responding with kindness is more important than ever. When we react to something, someone sadder done without thinking about it. It could lead to a saying or doing something that will hurt others. And while it might make you feel good for a little bit. I'm willing to bet that feeling won't last long. However! If we take an extra moment or two to think about how we will respond that lets us think about how to make better choices in our actions and gives us time to choose helpful, not hurtful words. Even when it's hard. It might help to remind yourself to take some deep breaths before saying or doing anything. Give it a try next time. Here's one more kindness story. That was sent an e-mail. It says hi. My name is Armani. I am nine years old. I listened to peace out every night. It all started on my second day at my new school. I had no one to play with. I came up to emily. She is now my best friend. I asked her if I could play with her. And of course she said yes. ps, I love the science episodes. Thank your money. Starting at a new school is definitely not easy time, so glad that emily was such a good friend to you right from the start. And thank you I love the science episodes to. It's fun to read up and Research on constellations and g odes, and for this episode. Salmon! I learned so much writing these stories to. Thanks again to everyone who sent in a kindness story. We will definitely listen and read each one and reply, but it just might take some time. All right, let's get started everyone. Let's sit up in a comfortable position. Rest your hands on your knees. or in your lap. Breathing. As, you up, nice and tall. Gently Roll your shoulders back. Lift Your Chin a little. Look forward. And close. Your eyes if you'd like.

Usually Wednesdays for rocket roundup, and we have some catching up to do. Let's get to it, shall we? A JAKSA H. to be rocket launched the H. T. V. Nine Mission Aka.

The Japanese characters say Kuna Tori nine. There were to last for this flight. This was the last flight for the H. to be the first flight of the H. Three is planned for later this year. This was also the last Katori. A new Japanese cargo vessel is expected to launch and twenty when he to. A lot of cargo went to the ISS ON HDTV nine. Six thousand two hundred kilograms to be exact. That's four four thousand three hundred kilograms in the pressurized compartment and one thousand nine hundred kilograms in the unpressurised compartment. This includes a solid combustion experimental module. The module will continue research on combustion in microgravity, also on board were six new lithium ion batteries for the space station and fresh bell, peppers, Kiwi and citrus fruit for the crew. All fresh fruits and vegetables were grown in Japan. One of the other experiments was a wireless. Lan Demonstration or W. L. D. pronounced wild. Wild was an experiment that was performed during Kuna Tori nines flight. This was tested during Katori nines approach where video taken by a camera attached to the craft's propulsion module was broadcast in real time on board, the space station via a wireless data link the technology tested by wild will enable ISS cruise to monitor approaching vehicles during an autonomous docking. This was the first time to spacecraft communicated using w LAN during a rendezvous. On May twenty second at seven thirty one am ut see Russian. Armed Forces launched a Soyuz two one B rocket with the cosmos, two five four six mission. This was a military mission. So details are a little scarce. Here's what we do know.

When I say elliptical I. Don't mean a tiny bit. egg-shaped were straight into severely stretch territory with altitudes ranging from six hundred to nearly forty thousand kilometers above earth. At that long oval of an orbit and place it at sixty three degree angle relative to Earth's equator, and you get the highly inclined orbit. The what's the purpose of this orbit? Thanks to orbital mechanics. Ammonia orbit is uniquely suited to providing useful satellite coverage for earth, observation and communication services needed by ground terminals operating in high northern latitudes. Those areas are not easily serviceable from satellites in the typical geosynchronous orbits over the equator. Because any antenna you're using would be pointing at such a low angle that a small hill could easily block the path of the signal. And even though polar orbiting satellites can reach these same latitudes, they only have coverage of any given spot for several minutes at a time. The MONJA orbit is inclined in such a way that the desired areas are not only clearly visible. The satellite is pause for a time at its highest point. Thanks to orbital mechanics, which provides several hours of uninterrupted coverage that. L. E. O. AND GAO satellites simply can't

T. Z. It's what you buy when you're going into a recession monies back getting harder and harder find stocks with no hair on them when a stock his heroism. Not like this. It's like fun hair your soup. Something's very wrong. You didn't anticipate I don't mean the obvious losers I mean if you put it. Retailer smashed restaurants stocking cap or macy's a brinker. You knew what you're getting into some arty. No I'm telling you must Johnson Johnson. That's a classic recession stock. In a long time Kramer faith change as the best pipeline ministry not to mention one of the future play balance sheets on earth. This is exactly the kind of stock that you've worked during a slowdown except not this time. There's some heroin. Jj Division sales knee replacement every hospital bed taken up by corona virus patients. You can hold off from that kind of survey where the Stock Down Twenty Bucks. Hi I think baked in here. We earned the trust. Actually buy more. But there's always some big shareholder out there who hasn't even heard yet that they have something involved with knees an elective surgery and they're eager to write off change as a bad business because of the subpar orders in placements. Same thing happened with Coca Cola. Now I've always felt always the recession proof stock until an analyst was he put out than coca-cola's bothers me need some supporter and put a real dent in their earnings again. And we should be used to find out but there's always someone doesn't seem to notice stocks to sell the twenty one times earnings and that's certainly a high multiple for copy. That might have an open ended spending problem. I ran into the same problem with one of my face Abbvie. We traveled just following by joining the extras plus dot com club. It's got a fantastic dividend abbey's acquiring allergen. Remember them and they're doing mainly talks franchise and that's a great business long-term bright now doctors do not essential procedures which definitely includes yes indeed cosmetic surgery and blow talks sadly just to live with a wriggles around crow's-feet for the duration. Now there are worse hardships. But it's putting a wrinkle in these numbers. Oh how about this? Which ruin the united technologies big break-up then slash birger with Raytheon that came on the finish today grace on squawk on the street this ever? Since the initial corona virus outbreak in China United Technologies. Otis l their division has been albatross around its neck. That's why we've been reluctant to buy the stock for the trust. Now the United Technologies and Raytheon merged give premium aerospace and defense contractor. Unfortunately that sounds quite as it used to be because aerospace has got Tiso hair on a bear market now as for the heating ventilation air conditioning business. So Red Hopkins a lot of construction whether it's not a lot of construction era cova. Suddenly which is the the One Otis. Otis is the one that vision I really liked. Because it's so focused on China and now the China's beaten cove it. They've got the strongest economy in the world. Saved MAYBE TAIWAN. It's insane finally. There's the recession Pu stock. Are you know I think the world of and I'm talking about the Cormick? Yes the spices and seasonings maker their thriving. You were so many people cooking at home and by the way remember people stay at home doing the work however McCormack also gets about a quarter but sales from food service and food supply in it. Give it to restaurants. You're seeing stuff and that is basically closed for business. Fortunately a stay at home story is so fabulous for the consumer business that more than makes up for the commercial wages. And that's why McCormack's a terrific story the only problem there's always some. Schmo doesn't know about the commercial exposure. Which is why this dot com clobbered when it reported now though. I think in the united against US worries. We're ready. I think in one of these down jess you know. We're going to get next week. I'd be a buyer how. `Bout we had David in New Jersey. David Hey Jim Bola from point pleasant down the Jersey Shore. Oh Man I miss point pleasant. Yeah well they closed the beaches anyway over here now. I want to go down to grow with my daughter but I can't see my daughter because we're all under lockdown separately from each other's crazy.

Yeah so You know looking for some accidental high yielders and I came across Walgreens WB they have really good dividend they got a pretty good earnings report and I'm Gary Trading at year lows. I'm wondering if that really good trouble. I'm going to save you some trouble. Just in case I ever see Jenkins sits down there and point pleasant. Here's the problem data really bad last half for the quarter and I think they're splitting it. The next quarter's going to be bad. People aren't going to the stores. I want you to stay away from walgreens there. If you want yield that is not the way I want to get it. Wbz But thank you for the kind words and buying the books Robert in California Robert Blue Kramer my question. Is we go as we know lots of people are working on the covert vaccines and treatments including companies. Like Gilead Girona Babbitt lab. My question is how much is already priced into some of these names and which one would be better trade. We'll tell you I will tell you that I'm hearing good things anecdotally about Gilead hearing better things about regeneration. Abbott already is fantastic because of the tasks although you gotTa rant that test up more from just fifty thousand the Gilead has moved up and regeneration was the best from pouring stock and the S&P but you know what I will still endorse Gilead. I think that there's going to be good news. It's not gonNA knock out the thing but some good news Gary in Texas Gary. Jim like everybody else. War nerve by this Viral earthquake but I was. I was hanging in there but I'm afraid it's going to be followed by an economic sue. Nami so I ended up like what eight and everything. I'm mad money. I had it all and shop a fi which are love thanks to you. I picked it up. One seventy six opera fifty months ago on and just sold over four hundred but anyway. I'm anxious to get back in but I still forced to more bad news than good news in the near future. You think you know someone famous is GonNa die or unfortunately the death rates GonNa get ten thousand or twenty thousand and so my question to you is. I know you're gonNA tell me to get back in to do it in stages but a tip I want is when the look for the first stage to start getting back in question. And here's the issue and you know I do like shop affi- so much. It was telling people yesterday when you miss it. A big celtics ago when they pull their guidances ridiculous.

"Are they going to do the same thing with open source abilities to track. Did you know that China launched more rockets last year than than the United States. Yes yeah so so like this is like whatever happens starling. There will be a Chinese version of Star Lake. And what is going to happen with all the other companies looking to do this because you know spacex is doing doing this. It's just a matter of time before we see the same coming from Amazon and wealth from everyone else so while things so far. You're if you're willing to trust that they will do what they say. And this is a sticking point for a lot of people I understand. While it's promising. Promising for SPACEX. We don't know what the future will hold and this is honestly terrifying to a lot of people. Yeah Yeah there's a lot of really bad people because they're anticipating thing and it's an enemy it is so interesting and I hope you're already starting to kind of Echo. The previous conversation that had had it is completely flipped around. You've got astronomers who have this resource of the the night sky that they're using to gather data data it is it is sacred to them. And you have someone coming in and the Internet over the the Internet wanting to take wanting to utilize this resource and the astronomers being being concerned and wanting more dialogue and wanting to have their concerns taken very seriously so obviously the the whole irony of the situation is not lost using the same word they really. Are they making a purely emotional arguments saying but this is our cultural heritage this sacred to us. It's the exact same argument it absolutely is and so you can see the same. The same method for being able to resolve. What's happening with Hawaii is going to be the same method? It's GONNA be resolved there. There was a couple of other really interesting things. One is the the sort of the opportunity to be able to resolve this like like with regulation. That ship has sailed that horses out of the Barn and in fact the people who are who are the astronomers who are working with spaces eighty six on this have said right now there. There is no regulation option to be able to stop space x from doing what they're doing to stop these. The the only one issue which was that In the radio spectrum. And this is the third prob right okay so in the radio spectrum There was a very specific set of the radio spectrum that the the astronomers authority that the satellite constellations aren't allowed to use. It's this three hundred. Two hundred and fifty megahertz and it accounts for about one eighth of the spectrum that these these constellations are able to use and they were able to get them to see that part of the spectrum actress for radio astronomy which has already sort of partly been defined by by regulation so they were able to ratchet that back in. So you've got this part of the spectrum which originally the satellite constellations us and they have agreed to not use in order to continue eighteen protecting that spectrum. I Ronnie and this gets back to the relationship issue because one of the things that we heard over and over was but they haven't turned on the satellites and we don't trust alum to have actually done what they said so there's a lot of fear right now because there isn't the relationship that these constellations installations aren't going to do what they promised and are instead going to do as the iridium satellites did and just stomp all over the astronomical protected parts of the radio a spectrum and so again these two problems completely parallel parallel each other. Where because there's a lack of trust because there is a lack of of relationship the communications companies are saying? We're just trying to get Internet to remote parts of the world. The people and the astronomers are saying. We don't trust you and could you could have at least told us what your plans were. And we could have worked with you over years to come up with strategies and use all that engineering capability that you have to minimize the impact on both the night sky for everybody and because I mean I think that yeah we've lucked out with this batch right. Yes you go outside in almost any circumstance you will not be able to see starlings airlinks like. They're not going to be this grid of dots in the sky that you're going to see and it is going to Besmirch your vision of the heavens but as as we enter the space age and we get our You know and and we get our gigantic rotating space stations. We'll get our we're going to this guy and you're going to lose the sky. Yeah it is and so that is the downside. The downside of that Star Trek future is watching starship a banner prize shine brightly in the night sky. While you're just trying to watch the meteor shower as the enterprise flies overhead and I'm kind of okay with and but but what we're saying is a lot of this comes down to people are currently afraid and fear isn't facts facts so when you hear people with both Monica as we talked about in the last episode and Starling as we're talking about today saying saying but we don't trust but we are concerned that this is sacred to us. What you're hearing is one group if if people who just want to try something new amazing advanced society and another group of saying but we don't care about your advancements we're happy the way we are please go away and we need to build relationships if we do want to move forward so that we can move forward together and sometimes be able to say? I don't agree with you. Yeah Yeah but we've talked this out and you've heard what I have to say so I'm GonNa sit down and support you and this is something that comes out of the software community. Allot you hash. Everything out figure out how you're going to move forward. You have all the disagreements but once you come to that conclusion you support the path forward forward but you have to have the relationship. Yeah let's let's. Let's work on building the relationships. Yeah I think I mean obviously the the the position that I've had For quite a while is is it is it is now inevitable that everyone on earth is going to want access to the Internet it. It is the way that we as human beings will connect and so then the question is what is the way. Are we going to build millions another five million cell towers around the world and it will take more than five million more cell towers to to complete the last mile to get everybody online. Or How many cell towers to win. WanNa go with five G.. What is the impact on on a story is that he has five G. Five G.? What's back to five G. on I mean it looks like those are actually pretty serious transmission power and and? We don't know whether it's going to do. They're radically eight weather. Yeah the sound strikes on and on there are millions of birds that hit cell towers right right and and beyond that just the fact that it is cost prohibitive to run fiber optics tech's to all the little islands of the world to run the wires to every rural village in well Canada. Yeah you gotTa Lay cable through sensitive that of marine environments. You've got a big big long fiber optic tunnels through permafrost through. It's madness to to consider under the engineering to planet Earth. It'll be required to provide the same level of Internet access that that these satellite constellations installations are going to provide and one thing that we did talk about a bit is is that there's GonNa be multiple constellations. There's not just Starlink. There's the one from Amazon one in web has already launched six satellites. The one web ones are at an altitude of twelve hundred kilometers and they are visible for the entire pass through the field of you. There's no time that they're not visible. They're always visible but they're dimmer because they're farther so they're only eighth magnitude but which is still highly bright in in any telescope and there's going to be more those and as you said the Chinese ones there's the there's the Amazon Amazon is planning three thousand plus satellites when one of the phrases that was used today is this is an existential crisis. Yeah do we protect the skies at the cost of our environment as we lay new communications lines in towers across the world to we sacrifice the astronomy to erase the digital divide. We find a way to maybe compromise compromised both in protect a few places. There are after all places and I believe. It's Virginia where you can't use a cell phone because of the radio quiet zone there are compromises but they require relationships. Yeah and and with one hundred and fifty dark sky preserves around the world the account for one hundred thousand thousand square kilometers of space in twenty different countries. The you can go to and you can see the Milky Way you can see the night sky in a way that that the vast majority of humanity will never see it and if we lose those spaces we will lose that connection to the night sky with light pollution and peeks into every single corner of of of planet Earth. And there's no place you can go to see the sky as it's meant to be seen that will be an absolute shame and I really hope that we can figure out some kind of compromise that allows us to continue enjoying the sky. Continue to you do science but also be able to connect people around the world and and and I don't think anyone knows the solution yet. One one quick additional comment I know people are asking about this idea of painting. The the satellites black or use Bantu black or stealth technologies and someone actually brought this up in conversation. Komo in the press conferences and they were saying that that in fact The problem is is that if you paint the telescope black. It now radiate in the infrared ed so the visible astronomers have an easier time with the night sky but now the infrared astronomers have a worst time and of course this whole time. The radio astronomers have just screaming in pain from the From shouting telescopes. So it's it's it's it's GonNa be a thorny issue and I sort of wish we had started could conversation nation ten years ago as opposed to now as these constellations are going up one after the other and this is really a case that has brought about because the astronomers were off offseting doing their Strana me quite happily not worried about. How do you get the Internet to the rest of the world whereas the communications companies is that well make their money off of? How do we get more people on the Internet? They were thinking through this. and Dr Phil Metzker is someone who's actually done some interesting writing on this and just points out that this is a necessary step in the communications Haitians Infrastructure of building society in the future. We will probably figure out how to do things that are lower latency. Which means there's there's less lag? Time between the two between sending and receiving the signals that they can be handled in a different way than just sticking satellites in low enough orbits to drop the latency. Well also not having huge power choir minutes. We're not there yet. And so this is a temporary temporary step and we don't know what the future is going to be can be bright. Yeah well it's going to be polluted. So so here's the thing though you'll still be able to see the Milky Way. These aren't providing the kind of light pollution that a city provides this. This is the kind of light pollution of you're looking at the Milky Way and it's like there's an airplane dashing across it except it's moving much faster and isn't as bright as an airplane airplane so if you can imagine if you've ever gone camping someplace that isn't dark sky preserve. That doesn't have air traffic above it if you've ever gone out to a farm if you've ever gone out to yellowstone you can see the Milky Way and then you also see all the air traffic that's what we're looking to is. It's going to be like a lot more air traffic but you can buy still see all the faint things if you're trying to take images you're doomed. It's the people who are imagers that are doomed. Yep Yeah I mean I already have to throw away so many frames from Astra photos. I can't imagine how how where this is going to go. Oh next all right well so I hope that gives everyone the update which is the Starlink marches on astronomy. Astronomers are continue you to be outraged and we will continue this conversation over time as more and more of these satellites go up and more. Hopefully mitigation in strategies are are figured out. Well thanks Pamela. It was Super Fun to you as always hanging out with you in person here in in one of these American Astronomical Normal Society meetings. It's been ten years since I've been to one. I don't how recent spin a few years for me as well. Yeah this is an important one. But I hope people enjoy all of the content that we've been streaming bringing back and who knows maybe we'll go on to the next one and he didn't do it so I will his guide to space and and question answer shows are about to have a flood of amazing content. So check this out if you haven't already and if you want to hear more about the news that has come out this week. Take check out the daily space that we're putting out with cosmic quest all right and we'll see you next week. We will see all next week by thank. Thank you for listening to.

"His strong castor wheaton fact space journey through the cosmos. We help you understand. Not only what we know but how you know what we know. Brazil Razer Cain publisher of University with me as always Dr Pamela Gate a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director of Cosmo quest and so again this week. We are at the American Astronomical Society Meeting and the other big issue that was hanging over the entire conference is the impact Ah Starlink and the various satellite constellations that are in the process of getting launched. There's already one hundred. Eighty satellites in space from Starlink making it the largest satellite provider in the world. And there's going to be thousands tens of thousands more satellites so starner's WanNa we know what was going to be the impact. What mitigation strategies are there? And what does the future look like. When there are tens of thousands of satellites orbiting the earth? What does it mean for astronomy? All right let's into the episode all right so so here. We are back at the American Astronomical Society Meeting in Honolulu Hawaii and and we last episode. We talked about the big controversy of the construction of the thirty meter telescope. Here on the on the Hawaiian islands the Bit other big controversy. That's going on is of course. The starling constellation and literally just a couple of days ago. SPACEX launched launched the third batch of starling satellites another sixty satellites into space. And I it is safe to say. Hey that astronomers are outraged. I think that's an under Sabin. Yeah and there. There were three different arguments. Demint put forward and I have to admit at the top of this episode. I am somewhat biased. I desperately want to see the digital divide to be overcome and low cost Internet Internet to be available globally and Starlink promises. That and so a lot of what we're GONNA talk about. Today the issue comes down to whether or not you trust. Trust Elon. Musk to actually implement the low cost in the low cost Internet so the three arguments that we heard today against Starlink And one was a cultural problem of old but the children if you see satellite zipping around in the sky will people still fall in love with the stars. Will your experience visiting a dark sky site. Turn you off to astronomy if you see satellites and the cry of outrage. We heard was that people won't be inspired by the sky if they see manmade objects now I have to admit I distinctly remember exactly exactly where I was the first time I saw satellite. I I was up in the mountains of the caucuses camping beside a glacier and and I was sitting on a rock all by myself because being a teenager is hard and I was fifteen and sometimes you need to sit on a rock by yourself from your fifteen and and the satellite. I just saw something moving in the sky and I realized what it was and that realization of I'm alone on orrock beside a glacier but there's a satellite moving through my stars that at the age of fifteen was amazing moment and this idea that satellites make it impossible for people to fall in love with the stars. I I don't think that's the case. But it was one of the arguments arguments put forward and getting together to the second but but sort of like from a practical technical standpoint win. The starlings are first launched launched. They are actually very bright there about magnitude two or three which makes them easily visible to the unaided eye from many spots on the earth and they look like this train of moving across the sky. Call this this string of pearls and end and then as the starlings raise their altitude up to their final position of about five hundred fifty kilometers altitude the dimmed back to about a five magnitude which is at the very limits of the human. I can see in Nice dark dark skies and and but of course in the eyes of a of an astronomer that is incredibly bright. Eight of fifth magnitude star is very bright star in in the eyes of telescope and then the other problem is that when when when they pass across the sky they will really only be visible to astronomy when they are low on the on the horizon during the summer months. So when it's when the night is the longest the night is the shortest. You're going to get really. You're only going to be able to see these satellite right. Aided the right after twilight and right before sunrise. And and that's it you have to be and then for the for the rest of the night there won't be any satellites delights but as the nights get longer the satellites get brighter over C- over the entire night sky and so they're anticipating baiting that over some of the the big observatories in Chile and in the Northern Hemisphere. When you're in the middle of the longest nights you're gonNA see these? These satellites run across the entire sky. So so there's no question that these are going to be very bright objects that are going to move through your field of view and I leave streaks and one of the things that people keep bringing up is there's already thousands of pieces of stuff. There's eighteen thousand thousand tracked pieces that you can pull from the database right now. Eighteen thousand seven. I think you can pull from the database and you can track the position using celestis and other other things like that. Yeah so there you know we know and to adding another twelve hundred. which is the goal for link? So so let's narrow this down even further so there's eighteen thousand things up there. Prior to the launch of Starlink only two hundred objects were naked eye visible. So Oh you can only look up two hundred different things in heavens above and go outside and see them with the unaided eye with Starlink. They're adding well over for a thousand by the end of this year to the list of things that will be visible to the unaided eye and its brightness that is really the problem. I was an observational astronomer. For a number of years before realizing I am the rain God in those years years that are as an observational astronomer. I had myriad satellites go through my images but because they were low brightness objects there'd there'd be the straight line of pixels that well I couldn't see stars in but that line was the size on the sky. I that the satellite was on the sky. We starlink what's happening is these well captured. photons that are reflected off of the satellite delight. There are so many of them that they saturate the pill pixels spill over to adjacent pixels wiping out a larger swath of your detector than the satellite alone would wipe out. And when you saturate a pixel that saturation can cause the next. Several images to have ghosts hosts of that satellites passage still visible so not only. Are you wiping out. A larger percentage of pixels with that satellite but you're wiping them out across multiple images. Yeah and and so you know a lot of these these these satellites as they pass the field of view view can overwhelm the sensor and essentially make an entire observing frame worthless and the speed that they're moving is of great concern into these dreamers as they as they move through it's about. How quickly is this thing moving through your field of view? And how long do you have to not be able to take data data while this while the satellite is is moving through so so they're they're quite concerned just about overall in the time domain as well and of course the the big observatory that's going to be the most effective is the newly renamed. That's a different controversial. I know that's like a third the Third Controversy Jersey. We won't get into that but the newly but we. I think we can all agree. That the Vera Rubin Observatory is a wonderful Navarine Observatory and that is going to be the. That's that's going to be the facility that's going to be deeply affected because it just is staring wide eyed at the sky for all all night capturing as much as they can as deeply as a canon so every frame is GonNa have starlings and one ebbs and all this past them and this is this this is a problem of because it has a giant field of you. The probability that there's going to be a Starlink in any one image goes up if you have a small field of view. There's the potential that you can time your images to avoid having star Lincoln them but because this is a huge field of view. You your ability to do. That is greatly reduced. And they're going to end up picking up. STARLA starlings left and right and here's a question starts to become one of mitigation so folks are working with spacex to see okay. What do we need to do to reduce the brightness of these objects so that they aren't blowing out the detectors? Yeah there's more than that so so Someone from spacex actually gave a presentation this morning and that was actually a bit of a surprise and they didn't do a very good job of letting us know that this is is going to happen. There weren't a lot of people we have the whole ballroom and there wasn't a lot of people they're listening to her her talk. They mentioned essentially a couple of mediation strategy. So the first first thing is with this first launch they have. They've applied some darkening materials to one of the sixty satellites to see if the some of their ideas to make them to have a lower Albedo lower flexibility. And before you laugh at the fact that it's only one the thing you have to take into mind mind is these suckers were already largely built in preparation and turning around and re fabricating that takes time and so my suspicion. My hope is that that they were only able to fabricate one with the new materials fast enough to be able to test and I think it's you know. No this is how you perform an experiment right. Is You you isolate. The variable does putting all this material on one of the satellites make darker than the rest and and we'll find out what happened happens so so that's the first thing they did is experimenting and and this is a good sign. I mean this is like literally. This is the first time I think that any satellite constellation Elation has ever had a conversation with Strana mors and said what can we do to minimize our impact on your science. I don't there's you know the two hundred others others that we mentioned plus all the eighteen thousand. No one's ever tried to make them not bright in the eyes of strimmers so till the first strategy is to try at a paint them so there will be the second thing is to provide an open source real time. Location of all of the satellites in the Constellation and to communicate with the other networks. And anyone out there. Who is who is going to be relying on knowing the position? These starlink so in theory as the as the Constellation gets built your of your telescope operator. You're going to know when a Starlink is going to be passing through your detector and you'll be able to shut detector down. Wait for the starling. Pass opened the doctor again. And continue to get your to get your data so you won't necessarily get that that if you've got a very precise amount of time you'd be able to use it carefully. Navigating around satellite as coming by the other thing is they're going to provide a very specific and I forget what the technical term was but essentially the the launch trajectory of each new constellation as they go up so when that first trail is starting to head off into space and it is going to cause horrible streaks in any telescope any amateur Astra photographer is going to get this as well. They're going to sit there. You're going to know when that when Constellation is going to be passing through where it's going to be just to to plan your observing observing time around those starlink launches and it only you know it's only a few months or really. It's only a few days a week that they're in this trail l. and these are the spread out and shift themselves to that higher orbit but but the second problem that we're talking about one of the additional parts to to this is well so far SPACEX has been extraordinarily in in terms of trying to build a relationship saying look yes. We're going to work with you. Here's all ways we're going to work with you. SPACEX is just one of a myriad of companies looking to do this and so is China when they start launching their constellations..

"Vista going flat. After earnings constellation brands his still keeping their spirits up but can the company claw their way back into the hearts and home gamers looking constellation insulation brands the stock war this beer wine powerhouse. Best known for Corona and Madel had written off and left for dead by many investors recently thanks to fears of slowing beer sales. ETA potential overpay for its marijuana's in two thousand eighteen constellation pumped four billion dollars canopy growth. That's a big Canadian cannabis play but over the course of last year the whole week court forgot what this warning constellation reminds us that marijuana's just a sideline for them when they reported a spectacular quarter and they continue to be pulling we'd the company posted a gigantic thirty percent earnings beat all the four basis and their sales came in substantially higher than anticipated. Takes you incredible strength in the beer. Business and better than feared numbers and wine and spirits on top of that management razor full year forecasts. No wonder the stock folded nearly seven dollars. Three point six percent so could twenty twenty terrific rebound year for these guys. Let's check in with bill newest all issues. The presidency of Constellation brands get better. We don't a quarter where the puppies headed Mr Newest welcome back. Didn't man money. Thanks good to be here. Hey Bill you're your quarter was really incredible and what I think people seem to misjudge. Is that as you said. You're just beginning kind of scratched. The surface and Sales Maddelo widen. Why do people not understand that? This is the only real growth in the beer category. Well Mandela Jim is not a one hit wonder when we think about the last decade you came out of two thousand nine at roughly thirty five million cases last year we did a one hundred and forty million cases. It's the number four or beer brand in the entire beer category and it's got tremendous upside. We're just beginning to tap into the general market opportunity around that brand so even I know it's been fantastic and has had thirty one consecutive years of double digit growth. We think the sky's the limit. You know I I don't want to burn lead it here but how people die if they your stock the last ten years well ten years ago coming out literally of December thirty first two thousand doesn't nine the stock was just over fifteen coming out of two thousand and one thousand nine hundred ninety so people would have made a thousand percent over over a decade and as always say we think there's a long way to go now when you've doing some exciting things. I hard seltzer is. The thing is taking Kim Braden this taking the whole market by storm. You said today that you're going to be offering a couple of flavors and you don't expect it to take share from your own beer. Only the domestic appears. How's that going to work well? The betterment category is one that the Seltzer group is really appealing to. And you know. There's there's nothing better when it relates to refreshment than corona so our belief is corona. Hard Seltzer is GonNa be a really important player in this market the market it was sixty mill almost sixty million cases last year. And certainly it looks like it could easily double in two thousand twenty and we're GonNa get a significant share of that market but you let to spend more to be in their correct we do. We're prepared to have one of the biggest introduction spends that we've ever had against a single brand but AH recognize we're spending against a franchise and that's corona so We're we're quite confident that we will get a significant share of this business and and we can't wait for March wonder all around well. I know it's popular particularly the millennials. Now let's talk about with David Kline's up to. He's going to canopy. You stuck by canopy today. There are some people who fear that. Maybe you overpaid kind of like what happened with ballast point where you admit yourself. Billion Dollars didn't work out. Can you reassure rus that you didn't overpay. And the prospects are bright for canopy. Well as as you know as well as anyone anytime you have a startup industry they're spits in spurts attached to it. What we're excited about? His canopy remains the share leader in Canada and the largest seller of cannabis this around the world. Now we're putting in place a person that you MC knowledged yourself is a great season executive who will bring disciplined and focus to the leadership of that the business so we remain very bullish about it. Admittedly there will be times when we get spits in spurts and the cannabis business. We think the long term play around that we'll be quite healthy. Well there's a lot of money in right now in the corporate structure of canopy. You've got kind of hard to understand warned situation if we're here to legalizing United States would you be able to Bible of canopy intake full opportunity for the money that you put in it. That's left well. We don't have any plans to do anything to put more money into canopy. At this point we obviously have worn opportunities and those are in the money we would certainly plan to exercise. This is those. But we're quite satisfied with where we are with our position owning roughly thirty seven percent of the company. But we're we're anxious to see what happens in the United States dates as you know we've introduced the first and free brand which is Base brand here in the United States that you can get through the direct website. So there's there's going to be a lot of opportunities going forward in the US whenever that is legally available to us and you've got to be happy about the way that it looks like the new Nafta's working working out not that you would be expected to be making Mexican Beer Michigan but the whole task situations coming together. Pretty well for you right. Well it has. And we expected expected as we've talked before that the tariff situation didn't make a lot of sense as it related to to Mexico and the United States very tight trading partners and and in fact the tariff issue has not been related to us in the least and we're pleased about that. We're we're just focused on making sure we're going to continue to bring great appear to the American public with our Miguel and corona brands in particular. All Pacific goes a good option to get speciale. We're waiting to get special. Buy Place Bill. Thank you so much.

"Host Bryce Paul and today I'm not joined by my compadres Padre Pizza Mind. He is M I a He's actually in Texas right now But we have a special announcement If you guys have been tuning in you will know that. We have the Crypto twenty twenty summit that we are hosting this is going to be January twenty nine th to January thirty first got over sixty of the biggest baddest baddest speakers in crypto presenting on their projections for twenty twenty with their projects are going to be doing all sorts of fun forecast. It's going to really really be amazing and the best part of it all is. It's free and it is online so go head to. Www Dot crypto twenty twenty summit Dot Com and register for your free ticket and we hope to see their today we are joined by two co founders some brilliant chaps this Benjamin Jorgensen the CEO and Co founder of Constellation Network and Materiel Goldman. Who is a CO founder and VP of Finance at Constellation Network Work Ticker Dag? Gentlemen welcome to Crypto one two one. Thanks bryce really great great intro. We like to keep the energy really high here because we kind of are operated in the most exciting space in the world I would say would you guys agree. I totally totally agree You know it's funny. We have a coin name for people that are so energetic in the space become crypt electricals. Ooh I like that what we call we call everybody here at ENCRYPT nation CRYPTO. WanNa one we call crusaders or citizens because we like to make sure that everybody is is included in this movement and on a mission so just to kick things off Muttiah at a high level. Why should the average Joe Care Care about cryptocurrency? Well person for almost. Thank you for having us here. Bryce it's it's a pleasure to be to be on your show and yeah why. Why does it really matter and I think cryptocurrencies are one of the most exciting developments on technological but also on a sociological level of our times? Right now and and You know if you want to be at the forefront then it always pays out to to pay attention to what's going on and that's just on a very broad scale and Ben what do you think what what what is so novel about cryptocurrency or Blockchain or in constellation networks case. The directed a cyclic cyclic graphs. which is kind of an analog to block chain will what does this all unable? Yeah Bryce I think it's a great question and I have apt to back with Matijas said there is a there is like a social movement. That's a huge component of crypto. That people don't really talk about because communities communities talking about the technology and they're in like how it works and what it does and describing the how and we stopped at think we stop. Stop to see what the movement is but how generations are coming together to to partake in this game vacation of a digital currency in future vision for what connected technologies looks like it actually becomes a very simple play up. People like to watch movies like blade runner that talk about this futuristic world that we live in and they love sci-fi Star Wars and how all these new technology's come to life so what if there's actually it would if we we've actually created this reality of a world That can be possible. And it's it's not. It's it's crazy to say this but we don't really watch like James Bond movies from the past you go. Wow that that cool new gadget. The James Bond has ask and then like ten years later. We have the same thing but we're actually living in so yeah. You know what what Constellation with the Dag that the DAG is just an architecture or directed cyclic graph and this architecture allows for a big data processing in the Organization of big data. And what what that really means. That's actually nothing novel. It's actually done in centralized computing or distributed computing systems and we're bringing it to the CRYPTO. Space Collect CRYPTO and blockchain. See Reality so you mentioned big data and that's something that we don't actually talk a lot about on crypto one zero one but it's something the thing that is so integral to the space into you know technology at large. Could you kind of break down. What is big data? Big Data is like everything data. Just call it everything big like. You're living in service being consumed by data just day in a very out. We put up so much. Data the average consumer Sumer puts out one point seven megabytes of data every second holy crap the average consumer will have four devices That are putting out they own Ford devices in roughly three years. That'll be the average across the glow that is so many data points whether it's like clicking a button on a website or its process senior credit card at the coffee store walking in the door at a store or buying something you're creating so many different data orients into producing using large amounts of data. And so we've we've all heard about artificial intelligence will. Artificial intelligence is like the food is big data and artificial intelligence is like the animal right and so how healthy. How healthy healthy do you WanNa make this animal right? He could feed it. A bunch of Junky. Feed it whatever you want or you could feed it like a lot of plants and it's going to be healthy and it's GonNa give big. The artificial intelligence is running our our world and it feeds off a big data. Artificial intelligence makes recommendations on what to buy on Amazon or it helps identify fraud on your credit card. Har There's big data produces odd insights of our digital world today and so I noticed A WE'LL I've seen you guys speak and I read your site and you know I see that you guys talk a lot about you. Know good data versus bad data and kind of like the Constellation Network being. I mean the the way to get good data and ensure that data is not bad. I mean what does that mean yet. I don't think they're actually. I don't mean to correct you. Bryce but there's there's actually really no bait bad data it's about validating data so when you look at data as valid versus invalid right so when you look at you could save added. Data is some the doesn't meet your threshold right. Ben Ben Lives in. San Francisco is in San Francisco shopping. Right now we'll that's not true. I'm actually in London right now. That's an anomaly. But yet I'm Ben Jorgensen right doesn't make bad. It just makes an anomaly. So what constellation kind of focuses on and. I don't WanNa get too in the weeds of this. But we're focusing on validating data that comes into the system right like it's terrible when we get a recommendation for some clothing line and it's for a female for female female and male right necessarily bad. It's just an anomaly. So there might be something wrong with the data that's coming in okay interesting in So Constellation is a solution for that. Or how does that work. So consolidation is providing governance of data or validating data asset. That come in there. If it recognizes an anomaly we can signals signal that data set to correct and so really what constellations value proposition to kind of bring it back is to validate and secured data so that people don't tamper in spoof that that data to provide false insights into that data set so that we get better data than we get better and better intelligence you you think about an autonomous cars producing or card generals producing tons of data every second. That what you need a mechanism awesome in place to make sure that there isn't some sort of tampering or putting fake data into a system because back take derail the car and then the car is is gonNA crash into a building in is GonNa blow up in what constellation does is we provide security around big.

Constellations are stars at humans have grouped together to make shapes or pictures. This helps us recognize and find stars easier. And this was important because the stars how people from long ago tell time at night, and when they started to sail across oceans the stars helped them navigate the seas. And people have created stories or myths about the constellations to help explain things that happened in their daily lives. Today. We're going to explore three of these Mets about the big Dipper one from the ancient Greeks one from Hindu mythology and one from the mic MAC and indigenous group in the Canadian Atlantic provinces. Now, the big Dipper is not the constellation, but it's part of a big constellation that the Greeks called Ursa major or the great bear. Let's get on our hands and knees right now. Make sure your hands are right under your shoulders. And move your knees, right under your hips. We're going to pretend to be bears. Bears can move around on all fours or go up on their hind legs.

Keep going like this at your own pace, as I tell you the story of the great bear remember to breathe in as you raise yourself up like a bear on its hind legs and breathing out as you go back down to the ground. The Greek goddess hair was taking revenge on her husband's Zeus and the mating called Callisto. Hera turned Callisto into a bear. And Callisto wandered for years as the bear in the forest until one day her son Arcus found her, but he didn't know it was her mother because she was still in the bear. Foreign so Arcus was just about to use a spear against his own mother. When Zeus suddenly sent them both up into the sky and Callisto became the great bear or Ursa. Major an Arcus became the little bear or some minor. You can come back down now. And when you're ready stand. Debate dippers made up of seven stars that join up to make Dipper shape a sort of rectangle with a curved handle in ancient India, the Mahabharata one of the major epic stories tells the story of seven sages a sage was a very wise person in ancient history. The Indian myth said that these seven sages made the sunrise every day. Now that we're standing we're going to do a sun salutation or pose that shows how much we appreciate the sun, which gives us light and heat and makes life possible on earth. Take a big step forward right now with one foot. Bend into that front leg. So that your knees right on top of your ankle. But not past it. Take it. Deep breath in through your nose and breathe outs.
