"If you're the quarterback you know some of the time you do you know you never want the guy who won't make that one throw to win the game. Sometimes that is part of the job to it's just you know for a guy like locked it was. He was making the same mistakes against the same defensive. Looks you know over and over again. And and putting his team in a bad position and that you know you can over overcome a lot of things as a quarterback mistakes will lose you the job. The quickest you know and that's And that's i think going to be their message to both of those guys. Look the defense is good Don't put us at risk. You know until the place when you need to. And i think that's going to be part of the equation. I think you're right. You know there must be times. I know there are times in this. We talked about it in his business. Where we feel like it's groundhog's day like we keep talking about the same thing over and over and over and over again in a. I'm wondering d did i do understand. It's directly is is friday the deadline when Maybe a certain quarterback that was great and yellow can make a decision whether he wants to play because of the cova thing or not is is is there any is there any validity to that whatsoever or it is possible for them to do it but it does not improve his situation for him which is why i am talking to a lot of people around the league gets why a lot of people would be surprised if he did it because it doesn't help him he can do it. Yes but he's still under the thumb of the packers and the packers still holds his rights. And it would effectively remove any ability. He has to put pressure on them. 'cause that puts them on the sidelines for the season. It goes to show you in this game and you were kind of referencing. It where we're talking about teddy bridgewater and drew lock and in quarterbacks and become a game of football how important they are had out. If there's a sliver of hope you can get a great one. Everyone just latches onto don't.

"You know he isn't going to get any better being somebody third string quarterback in the nfl. So i think it's a good move for him and you know a little bigger field and Little wider so you know he may be able to find some some rhythm up there and maybe he gets another shot something. Yeah for as long as you've covered this league and you've seen so many guys that when they come with the measurable sir phenomenal. What what is it that sets the guy apart that leads when they're all talented and then yet another guy just not simply seemed to figure it out. What the deal roy. Market we figure that out. We're united make a lotta money. But i would say it right off the top. You have to have enough ego to survive criticism and enough honesty. your ego. Doesn't you know sort of blush over the things you have to work on and the guys who can do that make it. You know you gotta have enough confidence to make it through the rough spots because they're going to be rough spots and they're going to be very public you know. If you're the quarterback you make your mistakes in front of everybody you know and you got gotta have enough confidence to get through that. But you can't have so much sort of belief in. This is how i play that. You don't fix what needs fixing and you know even the greatest the greatest. I have always fixed what needs fixing and and the other component of that. Is you understand what you're looking at. Snap the snap you know. Across the line of scrimmage and it's a lot more specialized now. I mean you essentially have one down defense is now before substitution are made. And and you know quarterbacks who played in the seventies essentially look at the same defensive sets you know two or three downs in a row and the guys today..

"She's perfected the art of living in the spotlight. But motherhood has opened digi hadeed up to a new world and a new set of priorities. I'm khloe mao evoked contributing editor. And this is g. G in wonderland knew that i have that animal in me says gee hadeed relaxed. In bright. from december cold the twenty five year old model is astrid colored quarterhorse named dallas. And telling me about the birth of her baby in september here at her home in bucks county pennsylvania following a fourteen and a half hour labor at her side. Were her partner zane. Malik her mother yulong to her sister. Bella and a local midwife and her assistant when you see someone do that you look at them a bit differently. I probably looked crazy actually. She says a giggle tinged with pride. I was an animal woman. Mallet cut the baby. Click that she was out says gee gee gazing forward through dallas alert ears as we plod through the upper fields of harmony hollow. The farm owned by longest boyfriend. Joseph goalie a construction firm ceo. I was so exhausted. And i looked up. He's holding her. It was so cute. She's in a cropped long as puffer stretch. Czar jeans and warned black riding boots and looks like neither a harried mother of a ten week old nor paparazzi ducking supermodel with her hair roped into a smooth bun bear face and tiny gold hoop earrings. She resembles mostly her teenage self. An equestrian who showed jumped competitively while growing up in her hometown of santa barbara. California what i really wanted for my experience was to feel like okay. This is a natural thing that women are meant to do. She planned to deliver it a new york city hospital but then the realities of covert hit particularly sequestering here ninety minutes from manhattan and the limits on numbers in the delivery room which would preclude yolanda and bella from being present. Then she and malik watched the two thousand eight documentary the business of being born which is critical of medical interventions and depicts a successful home birth. We both looked at each other. And we're like. I think that's the call. Gd says they placed a blow up bath in their bedroom and sent their three cats and border collie away when the midwife expressed concern that the sphinx and maine coon felines might puncture the tub with their claws. Malik ask gee-gee what music she wanted to hear and she surprised him by requesting the audio of favourite children's novel the indian in the cupboard. He downloaded the film because it was one of his favorites too and they spent the early hours of labor watching it together. That's something we'd never talked about. But in that moment we discovered we both loved. Gd says bash family. She then tells me that malik. The former one direction star turned solo artist. Who has famously press shy and declined to be interviewed for. This article likened his own experience of her birth to align documentary. he'd seen in which a male lion paces nervously outside the cave. The lion s delivers her cubs z. Was like that's how i felt you feel so helpless to see the person you love in pain. Doom dula malibu high classmate carson. Meyer had prepared her for the moment where the mother feels. She can't go any longer without drugs. I had to dig deep. Jichi says i knew it was going to be the craziest pain in my life. But you have to surrender to it and be like this is what it is. I loved that you'll monda and the midwife coach through the pain there definitely was a point where i was like. I wonder what it would be. Like with an epa darryl how it would be different jichi frankly. My midwife looked at me and was like you're doing it. No one can help you your past the point of the epidermal anyway. So you'd be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed so she kept pushing. I know my mom zane. Bella were proud of me but at certain points i saw each of them in terror says she ducking under a leafless branch. Dow also who've sucking in the muddy terrain afterward z and. I looked at each other. And we're like we can have some time before we do that again. The baby girl named kai digi revealed on instagram in january from the arabic for the chosen one was a weekly. She was so bright right away. Gd says adding that. The baby's heart rate stayed consistent throughout the labor. That's what i wanted for her. A peaceful bringing to the world. Kyw's world has so far remained small. Her mother rarely leaves the bucolic corner of horse country where the hadeed put down roots in two thousand seventeen. Malik bought a nearby farm. The shoot for this story. In early december at a studio in manhattan was the first time g g had left her daughter since birth yolanda took over caregiving duties even bringing her granddaughter along to feed the miniature. Ponies mama and mccoo. Gee-gee has no nanny no baby nurse. None of the traditional celebrity crutches of new motherhood during our interview the baby stayed with her father and zan's mother tricia who is visiting from england for a month to help she decided to completely take care of the baby alone says yolanda odd. And i think that bond is so important. The dutch former model turned real housewives of beverly hills. Alum was my welcoming party. When i arrived at the farm booming. Hello her arms wide on the threshold in. Camo print puffer and boots. I'm proud of her face on magazine but seeing her give birth was a whole other level of proud yolanda says you go from looking at her as a daughter to looking at her as a fellow mother. The natural transitions and generational shifts of new motherhood are at play in the household. It is a family happily influx on the sprawling. Thirty two acre property. The handful of cottages are designated for different siblings. But this summer. When g g moved out of her cottage into zan's house bella and brother anwar graduated to larger cottages leaving. The smallest is a guest house. We're still close by says she but we have our space to be our own little family. She hosted thanksgiving dinner for the first time this year with zero mother cooking the turkey g g. A prolific home-cooked herself made banana. Pi and baked yolanda favourite tatham. Bella occurred over stuffing and spiked apple. Cider in the kubota tv g g got her christmas tree early for the occasion dressing it with personal ornaments. That she and malik have exchanged over the years. The most recent being glass nintendo console a reference to a favor quarantine activity. I decorated fully. Without my mom's help. And i think i did her. Gd says they are tribe publicly known for their closeness yolanda the doting den. Mother gee-gee the fresh-faced protective older sister. Bella the edgier veronica deejays betty and aloof baby brother on war joining g g and yolanda in the kitchen for latinos and cinnamon rolls before a horseback ride eyewitness. These rules confirmed. Yolanda has the sink drinking a smoothie and finishing gee-gee sentences when she grasps for word g g threatens to have a connection if anwar eats her cinnamon roll when he ambles out of his cottage. But motherhood is a new phase and it will be up to g g to decide whether it belongs on the silhouettes of social media. I think she wants to be real. Online's as bella twenty four by phone from new york city but until her child wants to be in the spotlight and can make the decision herself. She doesn't want to put her in that position. Bela who splits her. Time between her. Soho loft and the farm and facetime with her niece and sister every morning says she already enjoys reading books. Aloud that jeeves to read to her including the rainbow fish and the very hungry caterpillar. It's pretty nostalgic. Bella says it could be argued that we are all hungry caterpillars this year cocooning and comforting with hope of emerging bright winged vaccinated g. G wants split her time between her condo and no-ho and the first class cabin of airplanes when lockdowns began she had just returned from walking fashion shows in four countries and discovering. She was pregnant on the other end of covid. She will emerge as a mother. Happily headquartered in rural pennsylvania. Still a supermodel. But one determined to lead more secluded less peripatetic life. I always want to be here fulltime. She tells me. I love the city but this is where i'm happiest furious. Speculation and countless think pieces have attended the question of what this time will mean. Will we slow down flee cities for less frenzied. More mindful life in many ways. Gee-gee the bodyman of such ideas. The sheiks glamorous version yes but also a person drawn to reassessment. It feels like now. I'm in a different place in my life. She says and she does seem genuinely at home

Is the internet breaking your parents brains?

"I'm jordan rowling's. This is the big story. Bonnie christian is a contributing editor at the week. She also writes a column entitled the lesser kingdom at christianity. Today and she is a fellow at defense priorities. Hello bonnie thank you so much for having me. You're very welcome. I think we have A common thread. And i think a lot of people listening who are about our age Probably have it too. So why don't you start by rewinding to a time for me it was late. Ninety s maybe a little later for you but take us back to how the parents of our generation approached the internet. Yeah well so my experience. And i think many people's experience it sounds like your experience was that there was a real Caution a real concern about the early internet particularly children and young adults using it on their own without supervision and you know without good judgment to recognize what could be dangerous concerns about the amount of time that we spent online. There were concerns about I think the the fear back then was like you'd be in an aol chat room and someone pretending to be your peer who's actually like a an adult pedophile is going to lure you out and kidnap you There were concerns about porn. I remember In my high school computer class. They they really drilled into us that yours needed to google before you went to a website because if you just typed in a url and maybe you misspelled it. All the pornographers bought up all the misspellings of the websites. That kids want to go to. So you misspelled disney dot com just like boom. It's going to be the worst thing ever. I never heard that one yeah. I don't think it's shoe but there was a lot of concern and in a sense. You know i think real concern that. There are a lot of bad things on the internet. Did we know At the time what. The real dangers of the rest of the internet would be. I don't think anyone back then anticipated. I mean maybe professionals but in in sort of like the common Understanding don't think anyone anticipated what social media would be like And how it would us and how it would really affect our thought patterns and and the way we consume information and the way we that information Anyone really guessed what that would be like. How did we learn. Exactly what The internet but yeah in particular social media was doing to our brains. And what do we know now about what's happening in our heads. Yeah so there's been there's been increased attention to this For some time. Now one Book i mentioned in my article with his A good read though. I wonder if he's going to put out an updated edition to address more of social media. Because it was it was published in two thousand eleven is about called the shallows what the internet is doing to our brains Written by a guy named nicholas carr and he focuses really on the effects of the medium. How it it changes how we think It makes it shortens our attention span at it. Interrupts our ability to concentrate our ability To just sort of contemplate or meditate with their own thoughts And you know he wrote that a almost a decade ago now You know before twitter was really a thing and the way it is now. Instagram didn't exist. Facebook was was very much like a place for just sort of meaningless little friendly interactions and so since then i think all of the trends that he identified early have only accelerated and The the introduction and increasing ubiquity of social media You know it really is designed to addict us in a sense. I don't think that's too strong a word. It's all very carefully designed by very smart people for return usage to get us picking up our phones five hundred times a day and that's not an exaggeration. Pick up our funds hundreds of times a day. We go to these sites dozens of times a day that that can't help but change how we think and what we think about who is most vulnerable to that kind of manipulation. I guess if you want to call it that yeah we're i think we're all vulnerable. That said i did write the article with a generational angle and did focus on older people My p- my parents are in the boomer generation. As our i think you know The parents of most of my peers. And what's what's different generational only Is that we do find that. Older people are more likely to share misinformation And that like to share it. Unwittingly and that age more than other demographic indicators like education or political perspectives Wealth things like that Age is the by far and away the the most determining factor of that likelihood and anecdotally. That is something that I've encountered again and again with Friends of mine with readers online both before this article came out and certainly after that this is a a a problem and again by no means exclusive to one generation. There are plenty of younger people who have very dysfunctional internet habits In which i very often would include myself but there is a an a sense in which older people can be more vulnerable because of the lack of Digital literacy despite the pure happenstance of how old they happen to be when this stuff came

2020: The year in review

"To look at the year's biggest stories. I was joined by three of the newspapers correspondence on the front line. Reporting the huge events of this year and their effects on the art world and a brady is our market editor. He's a buck is our contemporary correspondent and gareth harris is our chief contributing editor inevitably as we tackle the year's event to major global stories dominated the discussions the coronavirus pandemic and the death of george floyd and the fight for racial justice. I'd like to begin by talking about the effective of covid on the market. And and obviously this is your area of expertise. And i want to begin by talking about the fares. Because in a way they've been the marker of this exponential rise in the market over the last decade but they fail just as suddenly this year. I told me about fares on the covid back in march and sort of early mart taper off maastricht happened and it was kind of happened a week beforehand. It might have been okay and had happened week. Afterwards i think it definitely would have been cancelled and myself a lot of other journalists. Went out again. See the fat and it had very strange kind of atmosphere. He sort of jokingly foot tapping and elba bumping. But i think people sort of thought that something viruses affecting the outside world won't penetrate walls in the champagne and kind of that elite nature is. Shut down an exhibitor had got tested positive covid and after that so many people attend to call the virus at the fair and some of them were really radio and in intensive care and i think that was just a for me. That was kind of big wake-up cool overseas in the uk went into lockdown the us. After that the armory we happen to have the same sort of time but it was. It definitely was a kind of think. Reality shock that this is going to be something that really was can affect all of us. It didn't matter our were or whether you were off a this forest and have any kind of respect for face of mesa foundries and it's just as one said to me. Everything kind of fell off a cliff in late off training. And then you just saw this sort of chain of cancellations volvo fairs. I mean it's fair to say that the the big fairs have had a terrible year right. Yes they even had an awful. Yeah i was thinking back to when we speak russia beginning of the doing a year ahead. Podcasts i remember when i was leaving afterwards sending i think maggie a message saying we didn't mention carina. Virus and thousand mistake is at that point. We were recording sort of sauce january and we of it very much. They'll as an asian problem and a lot of the talk then was about whether autism hong kong was going to be cancelled and it was at the end of january but i think people still thought that it was going to be quite contained a there but after that east be the fence being canceled was knees. Now fast. Going ahead is news. Just the just hasn't really been anything since about much aside from these fares in in shanghai in november which did manage to go ahead that is a different world to rest of the world maidment. And i think we're really going to see any until about late. May next year by the looks of aside from say ought to buy which is saying that it will go ahead and march but whether actually will not very much master of debate gareth. That's why isn't it all. The fares are sort of basically postponing. And then there's going to be this glut of that happened in the middle of twenty twenty one. I mean i think the all world is beginning to think about a return to some kind of post virus malady but that's difficult is just said because the twenty twenty one calendar is looking quite crunchy. Really got balls. The hong kong is the first honor scheduled kickoff next. Mary and yams new york is next summer. So think there's about six or seven major phase in a row so within a few weeks within night mates at that tape off maastricht delayed Home call up. Awesome hong kong freeze. Neil and then our puzzle as well and then freeze. La in july. But we've been here before. Yeah i mean but we saw. The september was going to be back to back this year with fairs. That were delayed for the spring valley summer. They weren't they never actually happened. So i sort of we could be faced with the crunch or we could be faced with nothing at all this weird september. It's really hot today. It's difficult isn't because dealers and clubs helps to prioritize where they're going to go next spring some depending on all sorts of things like a vaccine and all other source of corona sort of things. I mean i just wonder how dealers will where to go. I mean i spoke to dominique levy a few weeks ago. And she said she's going to have to prioritize not would be quite difficult to do but i suppose collectors just itchen allow curator's itching to get back to in real life

Tax Return Report: Did Trump Go Beyond His Legal Limits?

"President trump reportedly made hundreds of millions of dollars lived a lavish lifestyle, but yet paid little to no federal income taxes in recent years that's according to a New York Times investigation. So was trump taking advantage of legal loopholes or might have broken the law somehow well, Lee Shepherd is a contributing editor at the publication tax notes and has a law degree from northwestern university in his here's thanks for being here this morning high. So as you've dug into this reporting in the New York Times, do you see evidence that the president might have might have broken laws here? I see mostly factual issues We sort of have a mixed question of law on fact, on his big abandonment loss, which is kind of a hard thing to know because we don't know the circumstances and because it was a big loss as the time says, it has to get a lot of approvals. So the IRS might be nervous about it. So there would be a lot of arguing about it. you also have a bunch of factual questions like did he pay vodka consulting fee and you know was did she do work? You know was that work worth that kind of money things like that So I mean, presumably, some of these questions would be answered in an audit and when you talk about factual questions in Texas I mean, would it just be a matter of you should not have done that you need to pay a big fine now or could there be places where they would say well, this was some sort of evasion that went beyond that was more serious. In an audit, it doesn't mean you did something bad. It means you did a lot of stuff and you have a big tax return and they're curious about it and they wanna make sure everything's. All right. If. You get something that they don't agree with and they think you know you really really should've known better. We have civil fines in our law we have a whole bunch of them. But they're just fines. But yes, on audit you argue about those two. I mean the president has said he was smart. He said that in the past about finding loopholes in in in the tax system to. Take, advantage of would. Would you agree with that? I mean, did he do smart things here or or not? So smart and potentially you know as we say, every legal wrong carryovers are not loopholes. I mean this is. This is the way the law works. The question is, did you did your behavior fit into? You know deductible expenses. Did you prove the amount of this loss you know are you entitled to carry this? Loss? Back. I'm a seventy thousand deduction for hairstyling for time on television show that was sort of eye-popping to a lot of people that the kind of thing you would see in a lot of people's. TAX RETURNS IT'S Entertainers yes. Entertainers fight about that kind of stuff routinely. That would become in the entertainment industry. Oh, good. Lord Gif, and he's also in a weird position because. And they've times points to Saudi sells his lifestyle. As S at that's that's his image even when he was just a real estate developer, that's what he was doing. So you know a certain amount of what looks personal. Maybe deductible.

Lockdown in Honolulu

"Don Wallace is on the line from Honolulu. He tells US authorities they're put in a new set of restrictions because of a recent surge in Cova cases on Oahu justice they were hoping they could start reopening. It's crucial tourism industry. Don's a contributing editor at Honolulu magazine and he's updated us on Hawaii tourism in the past and done you're you're out there about twenty five, hundred miles away from anywhere else in the middle of the Pacific. Hawaii depends so much on tourism and I would imagine it's been quite a stressful time with the coronavirus continuing to spread. What's it like in Hawaii right now. Well the whiny started out as soon as thirty thousand tourists stopped coming way did very well on the virus were the lowest in the nation for states. Now we've had a spike starting at the fourth of July and August it began to get up to two hundred cases a day. I know that doesn't sound like much but. you don't have that many hospital facilities. That, we had to do a banning perks, beaches hiking trails and gatherings over ten So is the response and the impact of the corona virus different from different islands. who gets most of it in fact, it's almost miniscule on now big island, the ninety MILICI, those islands, the people can pretty much go cleese they. You wear masks you're allowed to fly into a walk who without according to you. But people who can't find their without of quarantine. What about people in the tourism industry? Are they impatient or they realizing that haste makes waste when it comes to getting over the so they can start making money again. It's a very interesting case people very concerned. There's no voice irresponsibly pushing for white opener light opening deal like Texas, did for instance. And I think that's because the workers sixty seventy percent of the are. No a minimum wage workers they don't have good health plans. They carry the burden of this, and the other part is the Theresa Stop Coming. Can Americans from the mainland fly into Hawaiian vacation if they want to yeah, you can come We get about three thousand a day. And I think the hitch there is you do a fourteen day quarantine and you check into your hotel and you can't leave your hotel room. The impact on tourism would be you're probably wondering around the beaches thinking this is like it was back in the old days. You're very much in nineteen threes, Hawaii. Waikiki is a ghost town. That's not entirely a bad thing We think tasteful Hawaii empty beaches, very clean water clean here you feel like being caress be hanging out with the beach boys. Old School Beach Boys. And if you do go out to dinner, for instance, you may have the restaurant to yourself just one or two people. Magic. So That's interesting. I mean, of course the you've lost the revenue, but you've regained your beaches as far as the locals go there was something in the news and I think you wrote about it about gun toting extremists who are wearing Hawaii shirts. It doesn't seem like the Aloha spirit to me what's Really thought it. Up in the news, there's one of these Gun Group extremists start showing up at the black lives, matter protests and other places. Instead of what they weren't Loescher it's Kinda create a sort of scary dissidence. Then people here reacted really strongly. Ensured is about Aloha Aloha is welcoming. It's inclusive. And it's actually something. I wrote an article about how Hawaiian shirts fight extremism. Hungary magazines. It's a love story about two sisters from Portland. Hawaii's eighteen twenty. Married South Asian immigrants helped create yellow her shirt industry. It's a beautiful beautiful story and it's that Louis Spirit that sort of loved that easygoing nece that caring for others. What a what a dissonance by these? What do they call? Boo Goo Boo Voice Blue Boys. Okay. Well I hope you have to handle and then we can read about that in your article and then very quickly what's open now if you are in Hawaii, museums, clubs, restaurants what's The dishes and Him after limited reopening had to close again. We hooked to get them back up in a couple of weeks neither good their little outdoor cafes and restaurants they've shifted to putting cafe tables out on the sidewalks and even the streets in some cases. So Madonna. Of Lua. And you know, thankfully, why is a very outdoor culture? So eating outdoors is. No big concession. So that lends itself to social distancing done. It's so great to have you on. We'll talk again soon I hope everything goes well with Hawaii and tourism, and your work there done Wallace's a contributing editor at Honolulu magazine.

DefCon 2020 Recap

"How about let's talk about DEFCON. How's that been used to be Robert? We would prepare for this week. Because, there'd be all. We've learned about all sorts of flaws and security problems, and so forth in this in the talks that black hat and DEFCON. Is What would happen to us? Is that every the the abstracts would come out and every contributing editor who was looking for a headline would right up the end of the world, because XYZ right exploit is coming without ever looking at the talk and then we would feel people for a week until the actual say, well, they really have to get to your system. There actually was one and I don't know if this was a a black, a black half, a checkpoint software revealed Achilles, which is a nasty flaw in the qualcomm snack. snapdragon. I've got snacks my mind after our. Joyful Conversation I snap dragon chip These vulnerabilities affect forty percent of the android market include funds from Google Samsung LG Xiaomi one plus. And more there are patches. Thank God was is a black hat revelation Robert. That was actually a Defcon I'm trying to bring up the slide deck. One of the things that was different about DEFCON. This year was the fact that they provided all of the talks ahead of time. Nice because they're all prerecorded, and so you've got the slide decks. You've actually got the videos. You've got the right up the white papers. That one was was particularly interesting. The talk was hard to follow because the researcher. Definitely wasn't English as a first language. But as you go through, you realize what he's doing. He was able to take complete control of an android device and you could do in such a way that the person using the android device wouldn't actually know. Route control of his device. That's terrible. he is. Now it says it's opponent own qualcomm compute DSP for fun and profit. It's not the current crop of snapdragon chips. Right, it's an older chip. So if you have a phone, you bought in the last couple of years, you're okay. There are patches, but this is the problem, the older you're on the less likely. You're going to get patches. and. It's not necessarily even the older phones because you have to remember when you're talking about a billion plus devices that are sold every year. A lot of those are low cost devices and low cost devices will use these older chips. Yeah. It's a forty percent of the overall smart smartphone market. So this is a lot of phones. that. Need the patch that many of which will not get the patch there six flaws and they give you complete an absolute control. Of those ones how do you get it on their way? Is it with malware with a with a malicious? APP, for instance? the. Yeah. So. There were a couple of ways that they were shown the the one that I was looking at was actually not publicly available. It was a demonstration that was shown to me. Actually part of DEFCON is the the discord they started up this discord that has all of the. Only. Meet throughout the conference and. Organiz. Yeah. Yeah. Just like it would be if you were actually walking through, they have a wall of sheep discord. Gentle. Yes? Yes. Although it's harder to do if you're not there. Yeah spot the Fed on the discord extreme, right? Like it's not just a militias install, you can target it through video street, you're kidding wrecked. Surrender. On the chip, any incoming content. Oh. My God. So this is A. This is A. This is one that you would clutch your pearls. Unforgiving and I think every silicon engineer has this sort of in the back of their nightmare brain because once you well, we saw that with the meltdown inspector, the flaws until chips once it's in hardware. Mitigation is not easy and and more importantly. especially in the world of Android may not there may be no, no cavalry will come or the untouchable. Jailbreak we saw we saw last year for older iphones to it, right.

Is history at a turning point? How can we meet the moment?

"Now is the covid nineteen pandemic continues to grow, so are the parallels being drawn between it and another deadly virus that struck the globe more than a century ago, talking about the Spanish flu. Guys. We've been taking a look at some of the video from nineteen sixty eight. There's a lot of pieces of video that look very similar to what we're seeing today. Implementing the images and emotions coming out of Minneapolis too familiar to what happened right here in Ferguson Missouri in two thousand fourteen George Floyd arrest on a Minneapolis street corner, and his frantic pleas for help have given rise to one of the most turbulent periods in recent American history. The question that I can't stop asking myself. How does this all and You may have heard. At various points this year that we are living history right now. The truth is we're always living history. It's just that some of us can afford to ignore it until it boils over. But when racism and police brutality, and the rage that comes in response to that are laid bare for the world to see. In the middle of a pandemic and martial law is threatened. And nobody gets to look away. Everyone wants to know what happens next. Do, we even have a historical precedent for what's happening in America and around the world right now. What is the larger context of how we arrived at this moment? What are we missing when we watch people discuss it on. Cable News. And what needs to happen now? But does each of US need to do? For this to be a moment that changes the world for the better. That's still possible. I'm Jordan Rawlings, and this is the big story. Andre Demise is a writer and journalist, a contributing editor at Maclean's and a Nathanson fellow in history at York University. He is one of the smartest guests. We ever have on this podcast hi Andre. How's it going toward? It's going about as well as it can more importantly, how are you? doing my best I'm trying to reduce stress as much as I can by hanging out with my children and you know. Occasionally occasionally seeing partner but we're both in school. We've both got tons of homework were both busy plus jobs and everything else so yeah, we're even busier than before. The whole lockdown happened. Figure that and now you're spending this week with white people like me, asking you to please explain the historical context of this well I mean yeah, yeah, I am spending a lot of time explaining shift away, people. I mean I all. I can say I sincerely. Thank you for it. you know I? Just I find you incredibly smart and able to help me. learn some stuff from this. Thanks for taking the time Oh. Stop stuttered. Stop your flattery. I'm about to Leeann as I can plan. Why don't you just start by telling me while you watch everything? That's been happening this past week. What's going through your head? People say things like we've been through worse or we've been here before, and I have to ask the question. When when when of we've been here before we've been here before. Quote Unquote in nine eighteen during the Spanish flu pandemic. We've been here. Nine, hundred nineteen during the May Day riots and during red summer. We've been here before in nineteen sixty eight. But. My question is when when is all this happened at the same time? This is not this is unprecedented. My. Question is what is supposed to look like when when it's all over when the dust settles. Because at some point, there's going to be a change of some kind. Throughout history what happens in the course of a popular uprising that moves to straight up volt. The two methods that the ruling class can use. To try and tamp it down. One is use of force. This is where the Jimmy breaks down. This is where the state has to reveal as violence. And come out against the people with arms, or can try placating the people you can try it for example, the Civil Rights Act. It can try the declaration of the rights. It can try any number of mechanisms. To make that, the populace still has some faith in the state, but what? This looks like I don't know that there's anything to placate like there's I. Don't know that there's any mechanism. The state can try to convince people that social contract is worth upholding. That's the thing that keeps going through my head. Is You know what kind of concession can be made universally across? You know the entire United States that would actually mollify the anger I do know some of the answers to those questions I do know. That and this is something that I've been talking about over the last few years. That capitalism depends on racism to be able to reproduce and propagate itself. It's just plain fact If you beat Donald Harassed, who is a former economist Stanford also happens to be the father of Kamla Harris the former presidential candidate. But apparently they didn't. They didn't really have much of a relationship, but throughout American history. The the use of Racist promises the promising of white rages. what's been described as racial republicanism by scholars like David. What that does is incentivize the white working class against their black peers. It has the white working class essentially the. Generates like we are the only people that deserve to have. Rights. Everybody else is a on a cast below us. And until that cycle is abolished until we move away from a system of capital that accumulates the value of people's Labor and the crews it to a few select people. And then spreads out the rewards among certain other people, and then makes promises to certain people. Until that cycle is broken. I'm afraid we're going to be seeing this for the rest of our lives. I mean you're a fellow in history what? have. We seen that even close to like this in the past that ended with concessions. You have to go back very far. I mean you can. You can look at for example I mean not. Bolivia has been taken over in ashes coup. But if you look at Bolivia for example, the the presidency of evil, Morales and the Movement for socialism in Bolivia, lifted thousands upon thousands upon thousands of people out of out of poverty. It increased literacy rates incorporated indigenous eighty into the broader society. You had the the coca farmers. The the coca does I their their practices and their agricultural methods were incorporated into the broader nation. So that you didn't have eight of. The United States rating forms and burning crops. You headed that this is this is a a plants, but this is also a way of life that is valid, and the fact that it's been twisted into a normal trade has nothing to do with the people that originated the practice, so look at Bolivia for example like that. That was up until very recently and experiments in creating a broader. Social Democracy that was more inclusive and helped marginalized people, so

Floppies: The Disks that Changed the World

"Jordan Montana is a pack rat. He's the creator of games like karate and the Prince of Persia and he meticulously saved everything along the way journals sketches and storyboards all of it so it came as a bit of a shock to him when he couldn't find something he'd saved and that something was a pretty big deal back in two thousand two magner was working on Prince of Persia the sands of time. The programmers wanted to add the classic version of the game to their playstation two update as an Easter Egg. So they asked him for the original source code but when magner looked in his archives he couldn't find it. He searched everywhere the source code that he'd written on his old apple to the cody was positive. He saved had vanished fast forward. Ten years mechanisms. Dad is cleaning house and buried at the back of a closet is a ratty looking shoebox holding a bunch of dusty old three and half inch floppy disks one is labeled Prince of Persia Source Code Copyright Nineteen eighty-nine and in brackets in all caps. The word original the long lost code found at last it had sat in that box for a quarter century before being unearthed like some archaeological discovery. But this was two thousand twelve. How would he be able to get it off? Those old discs and with the data still be intact. Was it in fact too late to save his work saving our work these days? It often happens. Automatically with programs regularly pushing stuff into the cloud. We don't worry about manually savings anymore. In fact a whole new generation doesn't even know what that save icon represents side note. It is not a vending machine but for many decades saving storing and transferring. Our data had to be done using some physical media when the personal computing revolution took off which we heard about in our last episode on the Altar Eight hundred. There was one piece of technology that became synonymous with saving the floppy disk. It seems so simple. Now but floppies change the course of our history because they helped turn microcomputers into personal computers. I'm surrounded Barak and this is command. Line Heroes Unoriginal podcast from that HAP. Let's put a pin in Jordan Lechner's floppy disk discovery for a moment. Welcome back to it first. Though I want to learn how the floppy disk was born in the first place and how it became such a crucial part of the TECH WORLD FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS. Our first stop eighteen ninety. Before electronic computers existed there were electrical mechanical computing devices and the method forgetting data in and out of them was through punchcards the size of a dollar bill when electrons computers came along in the fifties. Ibm standardized those punch cards with eighty and twelve roads. A punched hole would form one type of character. No whole meant another for a long while. Those Punch cards were the main method for data input but handling hundreds of cards for bigger. More complex programs was hugely cumbersome. There had to be a better way to save and transfer information next up paper tape which came along in the nineteen fifties to hear how paper tape played a central role in the origin of personal computing. Listen to our last episode. Paper tape had the same punched hole method of reading data as punch cards. Because it's all one tape. No one had to worry about getting cards mixed up it could carry more. Data was much faster to us but as many computers grew in capacity they needed more and more tape to store programs like punch cards. Paper tape eventually met its limit. Enter MAGNETIC TAPE. The key ingredient was mylar a tough flexible material coated with magnetic oxide to make the tape recordable nine tracks could store up to one hundred seventy five megabytes per tape. That was a big deal in fifties and sixties magnetic tape drives of ten and a half inch. Wheels became standard issue for businesses. But the problem take is that it's great for moving large chunks date of one place to another. It's really hard to search on them to find anything in particular when we would install software on our mini computers in mainframes using tate. But it really wasn't that good for anything small and portable or if we wanted to do anything interactive on our with our data that Stephen Vaughan Nichols contributing editor at CBS interactive sure. Magnetic tape could store a lot more data. He was too big and swallow. It was only practical for the mainframe world really again. There had to be a better way and that better way came along in Nineteen fifty-six when launched its very first decide drive the IBM three fifty disk storage unit. It was a component of the three or five ramic mainframe computer a machine that filled an entire room. Here's Dave Bennett. A former IBM disk and storage product engineer. There was storage in core memory. In fact the disk storage device of which ramic was the first was a storage device that permitted random access to give on record as opposed to a tape. Drive interesting thing. That disk drive. Almost didn't see the light of day because it threatened. Ibm's punch-card business but the project was eventually approved. Problem was the drive contained. Discs made of solid metal ramic literally. Wait a ton it had to be moved with forklifts and transport it by large cargo. Not the most convenient storage method but out of that came a better solution of a floppy disk was originally developed for new need and the reason was that there was an intermediate kind of storage originally. There was a computer code and then there was the computer memory. The working memory but with system three sixty there was a new class of memory in between which they called firmware and in system three sixty there was unique technology for the firmware in various forms it was either a special kind of punched card or there was a thing called. Transformer read only storage but the new need was the desire to go from these technologies two semi conductor technology in the days when semiconductor technology was volatile. That means that the memory in semiconductors went away when the power was removed so there had to be a way of recharging bringing the program back into that memory when the power was restored for loading what was called a micro program or that intermediate memory and the need for such a device is what caused the development of the floppy disk dryer so in nineteen sixty seven. A small team of engineers led by David. Noble started developing an inexpensive system for loading those micro-programmes into mainframe computers. The code name for their project was Minna. Noble personally went through all the things that he could think of including various forms of punched cards including use of tape cassettes. And I don't know what else he went through but he hit on the idea of using an inexpensive form of this based on a flexible disc very inexpensive read only mechanism. The Minnow team wanted to be able to mail their micro-programme to various locations. That needed to load it. So the product for sending that program around had to be durable enough to fly through the mail without having its data damaged some kind of casing now what they actually had to do. In order to make it maleable was they decided to put it in a plastic container that was fairly rigid and they would actually read and write the disk while. I was inside of this plastic container like an envelope of plastic envelope. And when you have a coating on a disk and a rigid head you're going to have where and when you have where you have where particles and the problem they had was that as the were particles built up it's kind of caused an avalanche effect. The particles would act as additional abrasive. And then pretty soon with the particles being loose in there. You're where the recording track out and didn't work anymore. So a really smart guy that was on that program men name. Her Thomson came up with a plan that was based on a household dusting fabric that three m soul to housewives for dusting their furniture and he put a sheet of that in there between the envelope and the disk and that material picked up the were particles and they embedded themselves in that fabric and prevented the avalanche effect and really saved the

Coronavirus Hot Zone: The View from the U.S. Epicenter

"Wayt GIBBS was a member of the board of editors and a senior writer at Scientific American from Nineteen Ninety. Three to two thousand six. He's contributing editor. And he's in a unique position to bring us reporting an insights about the current corona virus pandemic. While at scientific American Gibbs wrote numerous articles that gave him experience highly relevant to the current situation in one thousand nine hundred nine he wrote a piece titled Trailing Virus to research that article. He traveled into the hot zone of the highly lethal Nipah virus outbreak in Malaysia. Like Corona virus that one also spread from bats to people he co wrote the two thousand five article preparing for a pandemic the plan to fight a new flu which has obvious relevance for our current situation. That article is currently available free on our website. He interviewed Bill Gates for two thousand sixteen. Qna called Bill Gates views. Good data as key to global health. That piece is also up on the website and Gibbs wrote the two thousand sixteen article. What ails the human race about a project called the global burden of disease which began a new chapter in academia logical modelling that work originated at the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics in Seattle where it continues to this day. And we're gibbs plans to go for reporting for future podcast which brings us to the second factor that makes Gibbs's situation unique in addition to being assigns writer of great expertise in the area of Gibbs lives in Kirkland Washington the epicenter of the US Corona virus outbreak. So what we envision for. This series of podcasts is a combination of traditional science reporting and first person accounts from Gibbs about the situation in Kirkland and the surrounding area where the virus has so far hit the hardest in the US we plan on posting at least one podcast a week for the foreseeable future as the corona virus situation plays out and now. Here's what Gibbs. There's some weeks when history seems to unfold before our eyes. This past week has been one of those in the United States. And here in Kirkland Washington where I live. We have a front row seat to the fast growing. Coruna virus epidemic. My neighborhood is ground zero the hot zone on February twenty ninth we learned that Cova Nineteen had claimed its first fatality in the US here in this city of about ninety thousand on the shores of Lake Washington just across the bridge from Seattle. Is I read about the man in his fifties who had died at Evergreen Health Hospital but it seemed a distant and abstract threat suddenly felt immediate and berry real. I am a man in his fifties. I walked across my living room and looked out the window at evergreen health just on the hill less than a mile away. I thought okay here. We go we. In Kirkland and King County will be the guinea pigs testing how the public health systems in America cope with a crisis that scientists warned us would inevitably come that we could have planned for but that his founders unready our experts in elected officials and employers are scrambling to keep up with the torrent of new scientific information about cove in nineteen and the virus that causes it which goes by. The name SARS Kobe to here in Washington state. They seem to be doing their best to act on that information as they make tough decisions about what to shutdown what to keep open and what to tell the public in this episode Alexandra one particularly difficult question that officials face when to close schools. I'll talk with the local eighth grader. Who's online petition? To close schools in our district has attracted more than thirty thousand signatures will hear. King County's Public Health Officer explained why urged schools to remain open for now as long as they don't have any confirmed cases of the disease and we'll hear from experts at Johns Hopkins University and from Anthony Voucher. The Director of the National Institute of ALLERGY AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES. About the mystery of why so few children have become seriously ill with cove in nineteen. But I I need to explain what the past week was like. Ear in Kirkland Cove in nineteen role do our city like a psychological sue. Nami sweeping aside other topics of conversation. Actually a a wildfire is probably a better metaphor infections. Have jumped quickly and unpredictably from one spot to another with responders racing behind to catch up like the wildfire smoke that now darkened skies across the Pacific northwest each summer. This epidemic has cast a pall on daily life on the other side of the hill from my house. About a half mile.

"Contributing editor is brand new book ball of collusion the plot to regulation and destroy president she's available now anything's was running show and it's my pleasure so when we start was sort of our update on impeachment gate twenty nineteen where do we stand in here is the Democrats are now putting out all of the a lot of the the transcripts of the interviews they held behind closed doors next week they're gonna hold more open interviews these interviews don't cut particularly well for president trump seems like Republicans are struggling for response what's your overall take yeah I think that you will have to have some more time to go through the transcripts of safe and released those there's a lot of that so coming at us today you know the I I think that the the Democrats put out parts of it that you know obviously were spun to help them the stuff that's come out today and in the preceding days give a little context of that but the I think the stories are essentially what they were represented to be and this is all along the lines of trying to have the trying to turn this into a kind of a quiet the grand jury proceeding that's going to have a public stage element next week that'll be the interesting stuff on I guess come Wednesday when they start to do things live anywhere with you and I have suggested that the defense that the trump is undertaking that offends many Republicans are taking scattered scattershot doesn't seem to that doesn't seem to make a lot of sense the his that I've made with regard to president trump's behavior here is that his best defense always wasn't I think probably still is and I think it's actually true defense that the way that he thought of what was going on in Ukraine is basically just a by a giant kind of ball of corruption in Ukraine either about Ukraine the first thing came to mind because this is what comes to mind works is that he has a rolodex of note cards you say Ukraine and he immediately goes to whatever bunch of people just said to him over the past three weeks so if that means Joe Biden means Joe Biden if it means it means breeze my injuries but if it means twenty sixteen Hillary election interference it means that if it means that he's going to get some better prosecutor means and he sort of spills all of that out and and that becomes his policy meeting yes Ukraine is on his mind because he's upset about twenty sixteen and he's upset the people keep saying it was the Russians that he didn't win legitimately and he's upset that their public and verifiable reports if you crazy numbers he was working with Hillary Clinton campaign and so when people said to him Ukraine military or no he just said no because and then he spilled forth all of these things that were in his head some of them based on that information some of them based on bad information like all the stuff that Rudy Giuliani was providing him and what that goes to is is level of intended meaning that if you are trying to drive a bribery charge against president from for example you're trying to suggest that he was using taxpayer dollars an artifact twenty twenty that wouldn't really go to twenty sixteen right so he has a good excuse but the excuses that he was given bad and amazing he operated on that bad information and he wasn't deep concern about corruption in Ukraine but not because he was concerned generally about just corruption overall because yeah of course he was concerned about Ukraine why would the Democrats more concerned about corruption in Russia they were about corruption in in Sudan and that that always seems like the best defense me but it's not the defense the did the ministrations been using present from keep saying no quid pro quo over and over I think that's probably the worst of times he could be to be tried out at this point yeah well I I've said from the beginning then I I meet and more down the road I think probably that you are I I think his best defense is always been no harm no foul I think I talked to a lot of this because nothing bad really happened I mean I have no I have no problem thinking that they slow walked this defense money that the president didn't want to give it up because he thinks that Ukraine is pervasively corrupt is a lot of reason to agree with him on that the things that he asked for assistance on I think two thirds of them are probably okay meeting the you know he he asked for assistance in bars or in what we think is bars investigation that is the our engines of of the twenty sixteen trump Russia investigation it's irregular for the president to bring that up with that the Attorney General asking him to ask another government but that doesn't mean that the president can't do that on his own I think it was relevant if if they are if they think that Ukraine is part of the all regions of the twenty sixteen investigation it would be it and they think that the Obama administration leaned on the Ukrainian to investigate the trump campaign and particularly metaphor if that's part of the theory that it seems to me that it would be relevant to show that Biden had so much influence over the Ukrainian city could get a prosecutor fired that seems okay to me where I where I part company with it is I don't think that an American president should ever ask what whether we're talking about a political fall or not I don't think an American president should ever ask for an American citizen to be investigated by another country for violations of the other countries laws you know I think we kind of have the United States federal government to protect us from threats from other countries not to six other countries on our own citizens so I think that's where the problem for me is but in the end nothing happened they got their money they got there a they didn't have to investigate the bidens and it's you know it's all a big hullabaloo about nothing and I don't think you're gonna impeach a president you know seven eight nine months before an election because he had a dirty mind I just don't you know I just don't think there's ever going to be a consensus for that I mean I I tend to agree that there's nothing you can sense as Ford at what what's bizarre is that the White House doesn't actually just tried out the no harm no foul defense that you're promoting or the defense that I've suggested which is that he didn't have requisite intent to go get Joe Biden wasn't really that getting Joe Biden in advance the twenty twenty election it was about he didn't like that Ukraine had corruption problems he sought as part of the Ukrainian corruption problem his belief that the that they had dropped an investigation into breeze my the behest of Joe Biden so he's asking for information on that necklace Ukrainian corruption not necessarily targeting of hunter or Joe Biden personally is sort of part of the reason why did this guy get fired is it because you guys are so corrupt the you're operating at the behest of the Obama administration thank yeah they did I I I I I agree with all that I I I think so the problem that you and I are both homing in on which I think they better get straight that I mean I've been writing for weeks that they be destroyed this I'm not that they listen to me on anything but I think the president has frozen his defense in place in other words paralyzed at by insisting that the party line is that nothing bad happened in the conversation yes perfect yeah and as a result none of the people who would be otherwise out there defending him effectively feels like they have the liberty to make some concessions where concessions are to be made you know you know as well as I do that any good defense lawyer concedes the ground that has to be given in order to maintain your credibility and you try to move the dispute to the ground that you can fight on and he's not allowing them to do that because the party line is this was perfect and no one can say was otherwise yeah was in any McCarthy senior fellow National Review institute and I feel sort of the same way about the senatorial race in Alabama is pretty obvious that if Jeff sessions jumps into the primary and from doesn't get his way Republicans not only when the C. Jeff sessions ends up in it but now it's like trump doesn't like sessions or we're gonna end up with the possibility of way more than I need I just like what why would why is personal animus and and trump's personal investment in this overcoming the better judgment of everyone surrounding it like this is all easy stuff all he has to do is just say yeah of course the call wasn't perfect because I say stuff I will go okay right I mean he says stuff that is the reality and and you can feel that from Republican senators Republican senators obviously want to move in that direction they obviously want to see what you're saying what I'm saying what what what appears to be a lot closer to the truth than no quid pro quo is completely perfect is completely above board but trump's insistence that everything is perfect it's actually undermining his credibility and their credibility and putting him in worst position or twenty twenty because it's it's my feeling that this whole impeachment effort is not about impeaching from I mean they're not going to get that in the Senate it's much more about selling from end selling Republicans is corrupt in the run up to the twenty twenty election yeah well the the book that you were kind enough to mention for Ben that really my scene in the book is that this was all political from the start when you're talking about Ukraine knower collusion and I'm not saying that that they wouldn't impeach him if they thought they could you know if they had the case and they thought they had the enough of an egregious act that it would move the Senate and twenty Republicans would abandon trump but what this is really been about from the beginning what do you call that counterintelligence which was just a criminal investigation without a criminal predicate or you call that a criminal investigation which was just like go to prompt a bunch of impeachment rhetoric or now we have impeachment what it's always been about is to render trump on electable by the time we get to the stretch run of the next election unless they could remove him earlier but I don't think they really thought that I think the idea is to beat him in twenty twenty and Subaru them up now in a second and you want to ask you about the whole whistle blower hullabaloo weathered the whistle blowers very bad the trump is saying that we should mention his they will get to that in just one second first at some point your life you will probably get sick or injured I mean you will not probably you well and that means you'll have to take advantage of our medical system well one of the things you don't want is the government's going up the medical system before you have to take advantage of it the fact is that obamacare already messed with a lot of people's health care imagine that was with warm during charging just got rid of your private health insurance and now you're stuck in Medicare imagine you can't get a hold of your doctor you don't get.

Why Open Plan Offices are a Bad Idea

"The dumbest management fad of all time. That's a quote from Jeffrey Jones, contributing editor at Inc magazine in an article that talks about the research from Harvard that found that in fact, open plan offices are bad for productivity. The reasons they state that people tend to Email and text each other a lot more in these environments than in a traditional environment, traditional office environment and the reasons for that our couple guess Polly's the privacy concern, you don't want other people listening to your conversation or overhearing your conversation. The other part of it is you don't want to distract the more disrupt the office environment. And that's something. I spoke about back in it beside one hundred thirty of this show where I felt that for me open plan offices are a major productivity kill because I just get to easily distracted. I'll go to sticky Nuys icon help listen into other people's conversations. And so it turns out now that have a design these things are actually reality for the same reason. Video conference calls. Don't really work unless you've got a private room set up for it. So the short answer is open plan offices tend to kill productivity because it actually discourages people from face to face interaction, which is a little ironic considering the whole point I created really was doing courage more face to face interaction. The other thing, of course, in an open plan office is you've got that sort of social influence around you because everybody's always watching what you're doing. And so a lot of people, of course, trying to busy when in fact, maybe they're not maybe they need some time to design out. And really think about a problem. It's how to do that plan office eve everyone's looking at you, you're worried the boss things you not doing your job. So next time if your office where you want to get rid of your open plan office environment, the boss wine, have it drop some names on him. You can drop Trent that might not do it. You could drop Jeffrey James, the contributing editor from Inc magazine, also may not do it. But if you drop a Harvard study owning pretty hard to not bag that kind of research. Anyway, that's just my thoughts. Agree open plan offices bad idea or thanks for tuning. I

"Meat" Means Only Animal Products, Say States

"This episode of business wars daily is brought to you by zero to show a brand new podcast from octa. Every successful entrepreneur follows a different path. Learn how to forge your own by listening two zero two zero wherever you get your podcasts. From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily and it's Tuesday. April sixteenth. Remember big dairies campaign against the use of the term milk by companies that produce nuts avacado 's anything that doesn't have breasts caused quite a stir in the beverage industry. Well, meat producers are following in the dairy industries big footsteps, four states have now made it illegal to misuse, the term, meet Missouri. Was I followed by Mississippi and South Dakota, the Montana legislature recently passed a similar Bill, which is awaiting that governor signature in those states. The legislation says you can now name food meat only if it comes from an animal, not a plant and most certainly not a cell culture. In addition, ten other state, legislatures are considering similar bans the campaign is a legislative attempt to stem, the tide of consumers choosing to go meatless. The industry site food. Dive reports that seventeen percent of Americans are now vegetarians and another sixty percent say they're reducing their meat consumption. A lot of these folks are switching to plant based alternatives and more recently moved into burgers and other meatless meat products created in laboratories to such alternative meat companies have gotten a lot of Presley, impossible foods and beyond burger are both growing meat substitutes. That are said to look taste and smell like beef. And that's pretty scary to ranchers and meatpackers perhaps the timing of the growing number of state bills is no surprise meet grown in Petri dishes is getting so big that Burger King just put impossible burgers from the company impossible foods on the menu. They called the new item and impossible Walker. When one of the world's biggest hamburger chain start serving non meat meat. Ranchers blanche, the veggie brand tofurkey along with others, including the American Civil Liberties union immediately challenged Missouri's labeling law when that state passed it last year a settlement in that case is expected by may first in Montana, the Republican who sponsored the legislation. There says it's only fair that Montana's know where their food is coming from it doesn't ban. So cultured products just says they can't use the term meet to describe them the ways in which the meat industry's responding can be confusing big companies like Tyson, the chicken producer invested impossible foods rival beyond meat. Think of this the same way big donors contribute to Republican and democratic candidates to make sure they benefit from the eventual winner, but smaller states in producers don't have this kind of clout. And so they are fighting instead meat production is a top industry and many smaller rural States, South Dakota. For instance is. The twelfth largest meat and poultry producer in the nation. Meaning a big swath of that population depends on animals for their livelihood as they gear up for a fight. Ranchers slaughterhouse owners and Packers are also looking beyond. The lab the Montana law is also fending off a growing competition of the six legged kind. It also says you can't call an insect ameet how we name our food may or may not have much to do with what we actually choose to eat.

Learn how to forge your own by listening two zero two zero wherever you get your podcasts. From wondering, I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Thursday, April eleven Walgreen cigarette. Sales could go away in a puff of smoke outgoing FDA. Chief Scott Gottlieb has been criticizing the country's biggest pharmacy chain for continuing to sell cigarettes. In February Gottlieb issued harsh criticism to Walgreens over its high volume of illegal sales of cigarettes to minors. Twenty two percent of its stores were found with sold cigarettes to teenagers in most states the legal age to buy tobacco is eighteen. Now. Some activist investors are pressuring Walgreens to stop selling cigarettes altogether saying cigarette sales put their money at risk of lawsuits. So far, Walgreens says no it has no plans to quit CEO Stefan persona says customers demand cigarettes rival CVS ended. It's cigarette. Sales in twenty fourteen attempting to reposition itself as a health and wellness company. CVS says that choice cost the chain about two billion dollars a year in sales. And here's the rub Walgreens just posted its worst quarter in four years, although sales were up they still didn't meet Wall Street's expectations. Last year. Walgreens announced it would cut costs by a billion dollars by the end of twenty twenty one following its flagging second quarter results at tightened the screws, even more. Now, the company is cutting costs by one and a half billion dollars. Walgreens, doesn't say how much money it makes from cigarettes. Although it does say sales have been falling still when it comes to smoking. Walgreens is caught between a rock and hard place on the one hand it may need its existing tobacco sales on the other hand like CVS Walgreens is trying desperately. To become a health centre rather than it retailer, prosciutto the Wall Street Journal last week. He says future success will Bank on its in-house healthcare clinics and lab testing, not it's retail side. Critics have all green cigarette policy point to the obvious conflict between cigarettes and Walgreens efforts to serve chronically ill patients the company which has ten thousand US locations is piloting tobacco-free stores at about eighteen of them to see how customers react a twenty seventeen study showed that when CVS stop selling cigarettes smoking fell by statistically, significant margins. Whether or not Walgreens, stop selling cigarettes, probably won't move the needle on its financial health the strategic problems facing both Walgreens and CVS are far bigger than the cigarette business. But the issue is a huge public health concern last year the surgeon general declared teen e cigarette use epidemic for Walgreens, it's a branding problem. Will consumers close their rise to the conflict between offering healthcare services and selling cigarettes for the ailing pharmacy chain this issue isn't likely to evaporate quickly.

"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Obviously, a massive massive election took place yesterday in Israel and a big shock in Benjamin Netanyahu retaining the prime ministership. A big shock for people watching all that closely. And who seems to be following the media coverage from afar of the New York Times desperately hoping that Netanyahu would lease. It would lose his prime ministership to bennigan's NBC news desperately hoping that that was going to happen. In fact, we have a clip of NBC news appraising bennigan's right before the election. The header ahead of the brand new blue and white party who is brand new and political seemed really has no ideas that anybody could actually make out except he had really good military record. Here is NBC news though, saying that he was wonderful mainly because he was tall nothing. Yahoo is always run on this idea of look, I'm Mr. security. Well, bennigan's says Mr. security six foot four, you know, blue eyed son of a holocaust survivor, a hero amount who used to take orders from Benjamin Netanyahu. But he straight. Out of central casting. He is convinced a lot of Israel is that they would be safe in his hands. And it's not just him. Because that is side. He's got two other former chiefs of stuff, so it's three Mr. securities against Benjamin Netanyahu. Nothing yahoos. He's Mr. security is he's he's so Mr. security, and he's tall. He's and then he loses. So joining us to discuss all of this is hard copies, contributing editor for the Jerusalem Post. Thanks so much for joining the Ben Shapiro show. Thanks for having me on. So let's start with as many could sum up. How surprising were the results last night to you even following the polls, look like Netanyahu is making strong moves in late weeks to close the gap with the blue and white party. Where were you surprised by how this broke down? Yes. So I think that cripple the system is so different from the US the multi-party system, and you have to build coalitions in order to have a majority in the parliament. And you know, in the end, what matters is the possibility of building a coalition. And so looking at the polls all along it seems that the Rayleigh right wing going to have a clear majority in the vast majority of the poll that came out that way that the right thing overall. And so even if trailing a little bit behind blue and white and gone like he always had the clearest path towards a coalition. And that's what happened in the end that actually listening ugly cooed party and God's blue and white party are tied. But because the right wing of bigger there are more people who want Netanyahu to be prime minister in the parliament. So it looks like he's going to be prime minister. No, one of the things that that has been kind of funny watching this from from the United States is the because we in the United States don't have the same electoral system as they do in Israel. There is this perception that the blue and white party was sort of a long. Sanding party people seem to have forgotten about labor, the blue and white party for people who don't know the the rivals to Netanyahu here. That's a brand new coalition party formed by a couple of figures. One yet, you're LaPierre who had a different we named party in the last election cycle. And I think had something like fifteen to seventeen seats is that right? And then the other person was Benny guns who just come out of the idea and was now going to be seen as the sort of security hawk lending, some sort of gravitas and credibility to repeat. Yeah. I mean, the blue and white party is it's a block formed a three different parties. And one of them is pretty right way. Having it's like people who used to be the Likud used to work with Netanyahu and had various fogs out with him and others are sort of. I mean, the party is pretty solidly centrist for Israel. And then like Ganz is kind of like the cipher. I mean, you were saying before that he has like no sort of discernible idea that even the party's platform ended up being adopted wholesale from Lockheed old Cardi's platform, but you know, I mean, those are legitimate, political ideas. But it seems like the party has these people coming from all different directions coming together. Just because they don't want to come Yahoo to be prime minister. And that was a strong statement. I mean been prime minister for decades. Now, there's a methods rally wanna change that they were still leading in the polls all the time. They ended up tight with Likud. But. It'll be interesting to see how they survive as an actual parliamentary party will cause at that. Right. You need ideas beyond not liking someone. The media in the United States and in Europe seem to be making this a referendum on President Trump in a way suggesting that if Netanyahu one that it was sort of the Israelis signaling how much they love president from knitting who has long preexisted, President Trump, obviously, it's who's been popular in Israel for a very long time. Even when he was standing up against a president who is significantly more anti Israel in President Obama number one. What is the widespread perception of President Trump himself in Israel, a number two? How much does this reflection? Did this election reflect on President Trump? Trump is a very popular in Israel, and certainly his moving the embassy to Jerusalem was a very very popular move in Israel, and so Netanyahu definitely use a lot of footage at a lot of photographs of himself with Trump in his campaign. I don't think that you could say the campaign was an anti way a referendum Trump because I don't think that if gaps became prime minister right now, he would suddenly not have good relations with Trump the the lines between the US and Israel of, you know, a huge asset for Israel is very important for Israel. And nobody nobody was arguing that you know, we shouldn't be closer have good ties with Trump and any kind of serious way. Then some of the more extreme parties are molested, but for the most part, and so calling it a referendum on Trump is funny. I mean, I think that you know, if legitimate to say, you know, how much I'll be using foreign leaders and his campaign. That's. Debate. That people have a Cam hats, but Italy was not a referendum on Trump. It was a referendum on this on Yahoo. Really most visible have Harkat. She's the senior contributing editor to the Jerusalem Post. So for folks in the United States. There was also this this gap that he heard there from NBC news in you've been hearing from MSNBC that would have really been a radical shift in foreign policy had blue and white been able to pull out in electoral victory here. I don't really see the evidence for that. There was an article by Jim and Lincoln on the week that I thought was actually a little bit late to the ballgame suggesting that the left in Israel is largely dead. It seems to me that the left in Israel has been dead for a pretty long time. Here labor has been markedly. It was d- major party in Israel for most of Israel's early existence. Now, it's one ending want six seats in this latest election, but they've been in significant decline for a very long time Israel has been almost entirely a center or center, right country and foreign policy since essentially the pull out from Gaza ended in tears. Yeah. I mean in the last election labour had a little bit of a revival. They got twenty four seats, and they were the main competitor to leak cooed. But there is a lot of mismanagement that a lot of infighting on the party, basically imploded on very poorly now, and I think it really the end whoever has a formidable leader who can rival the tiny Yaeko becomes the leader of the left-wing bloc. And that's why it's sort of shifted in every election since sort of Netanyahu became prime minister again in two thousand nine so every time it's a different party leading. But labor is the historic leading party on the last, and they you know, let Israel for Israel's I twenty nine years. So it didn't very big deal that now they only have sixty even though it's not so surprising because yeah, the ideological lesson Israel has become very weak. And I it's not just the disengagement and pulling out of Gaza have two thousand five it's the result of it that there has constantly been rockets. Shot at Israel, by HAMAs took over Gaza. And that's people skeptical about this engagement disengaging from the west bake. You know that the same sort of thing could also happen from the West Bank. And that's hurt the sort of pet cause of the left, which is that two state solution. We'll have our senior contributing editors Jerusalem Post. The other big surprised that the election was the shutout for some of the right wing parties that were less openly religious orientated. I'm thinking, of course, if the new right party led by Neftali Bennett, and and gal Shehade who is the former Justice minister. And there's a who'd party, which is a which the weird agglomeration led by Moshe Fagin. We had him on the show a little bit earlier this week talking about legalizing pot. But also building a third temple on the Temple Mount. Those parties were shut out the big upswing was actually in favor of some of the more established religious parties. Did you find that surprising? And why did that happen? You know, I don't I don't believe that demographics are desperately, but the religious parties, it'd be other. They do have a higher birth rate them. So it never surprises me that they'll grow sort of incrementally. And there's also sort of a a level of discipline of of listening to their religious leaders, and it is real these religious leader, certainly ultra-orthodox community. They're not shy in telling people that they go out and vote and who they should vote for. So when you look at the Haredi town, the altar orthodox Panthers very high voting rates much higher than the average of the country general, and then they overwhelmingly vote for one of the two ultra-orthodox parties. But there's the modern orthodox party or when Israeli term known as I religious Zionist party called the union of right wing parties. And I think that they are we're just really successfully getting out the vote because there was this sense that a lot of the right wing parties would not get into the. They wouldn't get enough seats. And so there was a lot of rallying in that religious right-lane community mohawk. She's the senior contributing editor at the Jerusalem Post. Thanks so much for stopping by shedding some light on what is a fascinating election and will have significant ramifications for Israel's foreign policy going forward. Love harkat. Thanks so much joining the show, really appreciate it. Thank you. Well, coming up in just a second. We're going to get to the real explanation for why it is that Israel has moved in such a right wind direction overtime history has something to do with it..

Those poor elves and Amos of resources it was pouring its efforts and money into treats that have sweeter returns on investment from pop tarts to Pringles Kellogg. I started shopping the brands in November it's been trying to figure out how to spur Americans lagging appetites for snacks from big old brand names. In fact, it's been a rough patch for most consumer packaged goods companies. According to NPR, young shoppers, simply aren't brand loyal the way baby boomers were for Kellogg. That means the Keebler name no longer pools. It's weight as American shoppers are increasingly avoiding processed foods Kellogg in its competitors. Are pulling their hair out at least sixteen consumer packaged goods CEO's had left their jobs between twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen the Wall Street Journal reported presumably. They were failing at or exhausted from trying to kick start growth, but if it were just the shift toward healthier food that was hurting cookie sales. Why would Herero be sweetening? It's own desert portfolio apparently will still indulge plenty, especially if the quality is high for railroad specializes in improving tired brands in February and relaunched Nestle's one hundred year old butterfinger candy Barr with more chocolate and no hydrogenated oils.

"Not gonna get anywhere else. Comes my way, courtesy of one of my Email, contributing editor at a tricks is. The fabulous Paula expedite. I man. It's shocking. And again, this is not new news. But it's every bit as relevant now as it ever was this some a lot of footage from back in two thousand eleven and up into two thousand thirteen with regard to General Motors being basically a Chinese. Chinese company seventy percent at that point. Now, some of that they say is coming back here. But we just heard that they're moving other things to China, and the the here's the takeaway on this. It's almost not that China is has people investing in. It's what they're doing with what people are investing in China and to make money for corporation if it were not so blatantly stealing from the corporation to further the communist world revolution. Wouldn't be there. But that's exactly what it is. Why won't they call it for what it is? It's the Chinese cultural revolution being run out worldwide. And they're playing the long game baby. Oh, don't ever forget. What do you? Do you think about? Bible, Jesus two thousand years and then back four thousand years or whatever to Adam and eve or whatever the Chinese been here. Good what let's say twelve thousand years go away. I mean way way back. I don't know what the time line is on that. But you get the point they've been there a long time. They're playing the long game. They don't give a damn about you round die. That may seem similar so that's racist. That's how they think of you. I am not exaggerating. The Chinese are some of the most racist people in the history of mankind. Maybe the most all of the Asian races. Are they hate each other? And they hate you. The Chinese think you are substandard as a person, do you know that now come out and say that and many of them are not going to admit that? But that's how the game is played. And what they're trying to do right now is take over the entire fricken world. If you think, that's hyperbole. If you think that's exaggeration Europe. Fool. You being played for a fool as well. Now. Stuck up on my Facebook page this GM buying into it as useful idiots. And selflessly making a ton of dough at the expense of one country. That's flown in the face of all that the United States of America with our history and going forward, and it's up there right now on thyroid Xing Facebook. Let's see somebody wants to talk to us here. Todd welcomed on the edge. Hey, thanks. A lot buddy. You know that description you just gave about the Chinese if I just tuned in it didn't know what the topic was. I could've swore. You were talking about the democrat party. Yeah. It's pretty much the same thing. Now, you're aware of the Chinese. I'm certain, and you you know, what's going on in terms of the investment of the Chinese literally trying to take over our country. Correct. Your your head of the curve a little head of the curve. Yeah. I'm still educating myself. I'm it's about it's about globalism. It's it's totally about globalism one hundred percent. Oh, absolutely. There's no such thing as a sovereign America because that gets in the way of the globalist Wetering, which is pretty much run the United States on a UN, but the Chinese has different have different plants in that they want the world run out of Peking, that's not exaggeration. Well, I hope that when Trump is done with his terms in office. He does that checkmate and just destroyed. Everybody's globalism. Yeah. But the reason why I called today. I just wanted to ask a question. I've heard this information being handed out by the teacher indoor no apparent calling in asking their child about these surveys in the child confirming it. Yeah. It once again, it's child abuse. But also where are the permission slips going out to the parents for the kids to fill up these surveys? We used to get permission slips all the time we were looking school. And that would be around every something is I I guess what they call it. Standardized testing, your parents would have to send it a permission slip sentence. Okay. To do that. Yeah. Absolutely. So where is that layer to shelter the kids from adult evil there isn't and they don't look at it as evil what they're doing is. They're rescuing your children from you. That is the God's truth. That's how they see. It. Never forget. This is all about your kid being made a global citizen and aware and in their minds right thinking global citizen, you would get in the way of that. If you have them like well, for example, maybe supporting the second amendment reading the bible wanting to learn cursive, you're you're in the way of all what they wanna do it. It said I'm glad that people are waking up to this evil. Dasm are some are. Well, the lady that that that that message me she said after she heard yesterday show, she asked her kid got home from school. If that was the case he said, yeah. And she said you tell the teacher that you're not taking those surveys. And if she has any problem you give her. My phone number say your mother wants to speak to her. And I don't know if that would hold with the teachers still be able to do it. I don't know. I don't think it could especially if the teacher went to the school board. You know, those school board meetings are recorded and played on general public access television. For the locale. So it may raise some eyebrows. Yeah. Well, listen, thanks for the call the good work. All right. That's Todd right there and people. These questions are scary. I mean, this think about a kid, and again, this is the expose on this came down from a teacher who thinks she's dealing with was at ten eleven year old kids eleven year old kid, and you're asked a question, I tend to walk quickly to get where I'm going without paying attention to what I experience along the way. Why would it could be asked that then rate at one through six almost always almost never will as opposed to a teacher might do a lecture plan. Maybe an hour out of the entire day where they'd say like we'll take time to smell the roses in say coffee, but we're going to discuss today. How important it is to pay attention as you go through life to pitch in to the things around. You got given periods of elation if you wanna call him a stay on does on the radio. The good stuff. You understand as opposed to get the kid to say head down. Oh, man. I'm doing something wrong. I'm not paying attention. Maybe they like it that way. I don't know. All those these psychological probes are just that psychological problems. This isn't learning. The kids aren't learning anything by this. In fact, the administration and the people that are large and in charge are learning about the kid. So they can further manipulate the kid. That's what this is. That's what this is. So we'll come back. I'm gonna go through this list goes through the whole thing today. Time for me to wiggle my mouse and do that. Don't forget over on Facebook. We're on Facebook that expose.

"contributing editor" Discussed on WBAP 820AM

"Six as we talk with the American spectator, contributing editor jed Babylon. He also does column work for the Washington Times. And we have calls to talk to jet about some pretty startling things that he has had to give us this evening as Brian in Jamestown, New York is next pillow, Brian. Yeah. I was just wondering how anybody with more than a single digit IQ when an open mind can't put together the dots that I don't see how the FBI could even be investigating this. They're so biased my nephew works for the FBI. And he said, it's nothing more than an anti conservative liberal political action committee, you know, with with those lawyers, and they'll special agents that all those emails about all we hate him. And we're going to bring it down. And all this. I don't see how they can be impartial. They're supposed to law enforcement is supposed to enforce the law. Not you know, Judy we understand that. Although I want our guest to respond to that certainly you referred to a set of emails between two individuals one an FBI agent one a lawyer, and there was certainly some activities that were taking place that the upper level. I would think jed Babington is hardly fair to refer to the entire FBI as a liberal political action committee. Well, that's exactly right. Jim. I think there's so many either thousands of FBI agents employees. They're just absolute straight arrows and do not have a bias or against anybody. And that's the way the law's function. But in this case, you had a small group of FBI people who were at the top of the FBI, including director only deputy director, Andrew McCabe people such as the FBI agent. Peter Struck was at the center of the Hillary Clinton investigation and the Trump investigation bolt. And managed to help kill the Hillary Clinton investigation and foment all the problems that have come out in the Trump investigations, which are simply going nowhere with all of that is concentrated into small number of people at the top of the FBI, and those people to the extent they haven't been fired yet, they should be and to the extent that they have not been investigated themselves. They will automate now given the fact we were talking about a small number, but a number of strategically placed individuals while this doesn't indict every single employee of the FBI is there enough of a problem here that some other agency should be involved in investigating this. And if so what would that be? Well, I think there is number one. Yes. Number two the real way to investigate. This was the investigative committees in congress the one we mentioned already permit select committee on intelligence, underdone, newness and the. Investigation conducted by the new sheriff committee, and the government oversight committee under chairman good lot and Trey Goudy. But of course, all of those investigations are now over because the Democrats will not continue them they killed those investigations because they want to investigate Trump or everything else under the sun. Isn't there? A United States Senate. Well, you might well ask Jim. Good question problem is the United States Senate. Of course, it does not have a Giardi of Republican. Yeah. They've got to go three. Whatever. Sixty you're really not going to be able to do anything. Mitch McConnell is not going to start investigation to pick up where newness and Trey Goudy left off. The only lasts Holt. Whether to last hopes, I don't think he wants to come through. But number one. I keep saying that sorry. That's where I am from the defense department is the Justice department the Justice department, I g it's record garrels, Mike Horowitz is looking into all of these things. He had in the preliminary investigation that came out I think last October November that really didn't find any misconduct by the FBI, which we know is incorrect the last best hope, and there isn't much hold their use attorney or Utah, man. Jon Huber was ten by then attorney general Jeff Sessions to look into the FBI's misconduct evident misconduct and the Hillary Clinton investigation. The investigation of her trafficking and top secret information on an unsecured Email system. And I think as an outside chance of coming up with some criticism of the FBI. But I I don't have a lot of hope for that. That's that's basically where it is. Jared and crane Missouri next. Good evening. Sharon. Good evening and good evening. Mr batten. I watched the Watergate hearings every single day that they were televised. I watched every minute of it in my book, the wire gate, candle guessing begin to compare to this because our Justice system has been totally. Totally. Years for personal purposes. And if it wasn't for the fact that you can't go to the southern US court to southern district attorney's office because they've already shown their bias. If this doesn't qualify under the Rico act are Rico laws. I don't know what good because these people conspired to connect. Lied to a federal judge. They. Rink and presented evidence and all kinds of other things that they have John which we don't know what that because they haven't been investigated, and this this has put a black Mark on an agency that has worked very hard for this country that the officers in the field. Are hard working people. And now they have been tarred with this brush. And it's it's morale is bad in the FBI. It's amazing to me jed. Karen raises some very good points. I think at this point the FBI's and department of Justice has reputations have been besmirched. They've been stained. I don't think stain can be a Radicati because the cover up has succeeded. And I think that's gonna be a long time before they can really recover from that. So yeah, I don't know where you go. I hadn't thought about the Rico statute racketeering influence corrupt organization. I don't think it has been ever applied to a governmental entity. I think maybe it could be. But I think again, Sharon editor a good point the people who committed the accede abuses of power acted against our system of laws and government. They were intending to affect an election, which is an interference in our democracy. And frankly, they may have they probably didn't succeed. I don't know how many votes anybody change because of what? The Clinton investigation did or didn't find. But the basic point was I think that they use guys need to be held accountable and because the cover up as succeeded. It's extremely unlikely that anybody call me McCabe struck age any of these people are going to be held accountable. All right. More to come. Stay with us. One eight six six five O, JIMBO our number.

"contributing editor" Discussed on The Energy Gang

"I'm Stephen Lacey, contributing editor at GTM, welcome. We are about to witness one of the most contentious and consequential bankruptcies in the history of energy PG genie. California's biggest utility is reeling from wildfire costs, and it is now headed to the courts where it will likely be dismantled will it crush California's goals to clean up the electric grid or will lawmakers step in with a political fix of some kind that the risk of angering a lot of people whose lives have been devastated by wildfires. The stakes could not be higher. We're going to tackle the big questions raised by PGA spiral. Then why are hundreds of liberal green groups shutting down every technology except wind and solar as part of the green new deal. We'll discuss a letter that has raised a lot of criticism and risks fighting among allies, even before a real plan is considered in congress. Then. I'm sorry to say it folks, the Russians have likely already hacked your Email. We're going to have a rundown of a terrifying story on the Wall Street Journal of how the Russians infiltrated dozens of utilities allowing them to hide out inside the computer systems controlling the grid. Who knows maybe Russian intelligence is listening to us right now, Catherine Hamilton is the chair of thirty eight nor solutions a public policy firm in Washington DC. Hey, katherine. Hey, how are you all doing good? So if the Russians were listening to us, what would you want to tell them? Step away from the microphone. Secret Shah is back on the east coast just outside DC. He is the president of the investment firm generate capital. Hello jigger. Hey, how you doing good? What would you want to tell the Russians if they're listening in you know, I watched a YouTube video of a bunch of teenagers in Saint Saint Petersburg, having a fireworks fight. So I would say do more of that. That sounds pretty cool. Our Russian listeners hate us are like five Russian listeners are completely offended at this point. Well, if the the Russian intelligence agency is listening guys feel free to send some Twitter bots encouraging people to rate and review the show on EPO podcasts. And of course, as I mentioned at the top of the show, they can get a free squared membership. Well, the fact that Russia's hacking of the grid is not our top story tells you everything about the importance of this first topic PG looming. Bankruptcy. The biggest utility in the world's fifth largest economy in the world has spiraled out of control. It faces up to thirty billion dollars in wildfire costs from the two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen fire seasons ten times its current market capitalization. So yeah, this is a big deal, and it's also kind of confusing because it's so wrapped up in the states climate goals and the future risks of wildfires are so damaging. So this bankruptcy proceeding has to take both those factors into consideration. Which? Complicates matters. So here's how I wanna break the conversation up. What happens to the utility now like what are the proposals? What happens to renewable energy, contracts and other programs for efficiency and EVT's? How does this impact the state's broader climate goals? Will there be a political fix because of those important goals, and then what's the technological and operational fix to prevent wildfire damage from destroying another utility? So there is an important technological element that we will get to hopefully at the end, but mostly I think a lot of people are just kind of interested in the bankruptcy proceeding itself. And what it means for such a massive utility like PG knee. And then what it means for future bankruptcy proceedings. So let's just provide a very brief recap of how Pacific Gas and electric found itself in this financial calamity, a Catharine. Can you give us a really quick overview? Yes. So this is like the ninth largest bankruptcy since the eighties. So this is a huge deal. It's. It's a big one. And there's been a long and sorted history. With PG any from the Enron days in in two thousand two thousand one where PG e and so Kelly was we're all wrapped up in that then. So there was no love loss for PGA for a long time in two thousand nine when the Recovery Act gave a cost share program to PG need to do smart meters..
