Canary's Royal origin story
"Just aim and make that the problem that needs solving what they tell us about how you re right because you actually had a pretty interesting off between. Okay. So we've talked about the thing I'm so sorry this is turned into your life by the way. I mean, look for those of you who are listening I mean you can probably guess that her brain and I. A friends and I'm friends also Hula and I'm friends with Shell like I. Love these guys and I just think the history is is really interesting which is why I'm bothering to draw it out in podcast, but you didn't just go straight from. Straight from post into into things, canary thinks had a previous incarnation. Really. Tell us about that. So. So it's actually interesting because leaving things I knew that we wanted I wanted to try to build a product company. and. My earlier hope was actually slightly more ambitious than that of multiple products ends vision of you just buildings and then split them off and they'll go become companies on their own. And one of the things you figure out as that everything you build actually takes a whole bunch of efforts to get it to market I. didn't know the product that we wanted to build yet. So lost left sense post roll already headed huggy up version of multi go and so he went it's today did on that and made it better and better and better and when I left I had like four or five ideas. One of them was a west of believe it or not. One of them was like, how can we detect badness on this thing? One of them were solving? Remote Password resets as lame as that sounds like the Susan unsolved from a short list of them. And my plan was to find customers could pay me to solve that problem for them with understanding that I could then resell that as a product and and so instead of raising money said I'd go to a customer and say, Hey, this is a big problem for you pay me the bullet for you and after I bullet for them might sell it to other people and so we we tried a few problems and then there's a division in the because one of the first customers that actually did stuff like this fall we built aversion Ibuka version of wikileaks for Ozier, Jazirah. I'm really surprised that you actually a named that because I was prepared to ask you a question about the work you did for I broadcast because this is not something you've really spoken about publicly before is it? No I haven't. Not for a huge secret, but but just because like like generally customer names adjust not what? You did a lot of work for Aljazeera for quite a bit. And I were interfacing with very senior people in that organization. So. So what happened was it started with a friend of mine who worked there said that they needed or they were interested in wikileaks prod program, and this was way early when Wiki leaks was the darling of journalism soap. So you took this is when wikileaks was cool. It wikileaks was cool and all the journalists wanted them and already aljazeera was saying they wanted own platform where people could leak stuff to them. So I spoke to them a little bit and we actually bought a really cool thing for them like like considering when it was. Tells you. It's age it was a Java applet that loads on the client machine. Would negatively tool and natively PGP. Of with the logic that the stuff you want to leak never leaves your machine without being encrypted with a key that's never shown on the Internet. So on your machine gets encrypted and by the time, it reaches the Sava it's natively toward. So the Selva doesn't know who sent it. You can just pull that stuff off the server end up PG peaks update later on and what year was this This was twenty, ten, late twenty ten. So. So it was super cool an and advantage for but. And while I was doing it the whole of Egypt solution habit and I was looking at the at. Aljazeera. Win when Egypt cell. And Up Ultra Zito got taken off the edge and at the time what what I figured out just by accident by being there was that datebook that security meant having a file and here was all that was covering a what was becoming a Adam Spring. But literally, they had zero reveal understanding of security of like everything you can think off flat network and also it's such an interesting business model right? Like like everybody hits the John Lewis but journalists literally have. Some journalists have all the interests of a full blown spies except they publish everything end. Actually vamping up in cotton wool isn't the solution because putting stuff out there is what they do. So, ended up speaking to the general a at the time and. I proposed a bunch of products that I said we could vote for them again with the view to these would be great products A. Outside. And we agreed on a contract where we could hold a bunch of things like how would you know you owned? If you were journalists how would you know that your devices will own stuff like? And the interesting thing is he said look you can do this as long as you come over here to Doha welcome at you. And a at the time it was just my wife and I we said Okay let's let's go do a Doha holiday and see how that works. It turned out to be super interesting. Of An and when I got there, I saw the breath of their problems. And they then went through management changes like a a new data general came in who turned out to be A. Royalty and he was more interested in locking stuff down and at that point I said to them hey, listen he does these projects that we're doing for you but I'll leave. And he said look, can you build also security team and so? Essentially, what I did at that point, and at that point things was just me. So, I had the ability to and I said okay. Hired their team that team up and and something? That's that's not spoken about in the Canadian origin story is after I bought that team and left them like at still periodically. Not so much consult for them as as like give advice to some of the executives like like the head of the new media division or the head of ED Technology Division. and would canetti pitched idea to them of dropping honeypots as as a way to get insight into the new. Satellite Networks and they didn't implement normally they they used to do everything I'd say, and they didn't over two visits and that's when we started to figure the hold on these people want to do it. They just not getting around to doing. And we need to make these. Yeah. The problem that needs solving is is making this thing so easy that people who want to will do it. End. Of the time see sewing them was super interesting because it gives you an interesting view again into the. House coming off ten years of. Ridiculously convoluted hack sense post right because in the position I ended up in like just get involved when it will cool hack. So cool customers and so you end up with these really cool technical problems. And now you walk in an actually your problem is solving. You'll analysts it. Yeah. Journalists in Morocco sharing.
Ross Jeffs on Individualizing Speed Training by Understanding Concentric
"We have an awesome show for you lined up on individualizing factors and speed training. individualization has been one of my favorite topics to get into I feel like one of the most rewarding things that. Seems to happen throughout the process of coaching athletes is finding that athlete who just wasn't responding to the training that they had been given and looking at them, and and having the layers of awareness to understand where they're at and his into as an individual giving them the training they need and seeing them succeed. That is one of my absolute favorite things as a coach and. And that's why these podcasts on training individualization. I just enjoy them a ton, so Ross Jeff's. He was on the podcast back on episode, one forty, five, talking about trainers versus racers, which again is another element of individualization, basically knowing how to train athletes based off of how close they can get to their peak performance output in practice versus competition and how to train them correspondingly. Ross is currently working as a sprints jumps in hurdles coach at the aspire academy in Doha Cutter. He formally has worked in the Netherlands is the sprints and jumps coach. He's also coached under the guidance of Jonas Dodo within this speedwork system. Outside the track field Ross's worked with a number of athletes. From -rageous sports including tennis boxing. Olympic medalists from backs, basketball and rugby sevens, and Ross really has a full gamut of people that he's worked with. He's absolutely one of the most brilliant young coaches I've talked to. He's open-minded. He's curious. He has a huge tribe of mentors and I always learn things that are very applicable whether I reading his articles or obviously talking to him in these podcasts, so for the show today Ross is going to get into the idea behind on three types. Types of sprinting or three types of sprinting athletes and how to identify those, and then how those athletes ten respond best to training, and so I've seen a presentation that Ross did on this I was thoroughly intrigued, and unlike we have to do a podcast on this and so I'm super lucky to have him back and so we're going to get into that. We're going to get into three types of these three types of sprinting athletes identifying them and then how to train them. And whether you attract coach or not, there's a ton of gold in the show just in the sense that honestly if you're a track coach, a lot of times like if you're training jumpers, you may have a group that is almost more going to be close to one type. Were says a team sport. You're going to have a lot of types and so being able to just go through these ideas. It's going to give you a great new layers awareness, and this was an awesome show, so all that being said. Let's get onto episode two six with Ross Jeff's. Ross man awesome. Have you back? How how have you been? has there been any. I've been doing any online coaching in the midst of all this. What's what's happening in the world to track and field right now? Ed, you'll find, have me May Yeah, it's interest. Not Come in Cadillac up in about almost a year now so. Been in lockdown since. At Emma, so we've been there most fought training session close, so there's no, there's not much garnell. Plenty plenty of time was that where this presentation that we're GonNa talk about today was born. I'm sure that's been. It's been in the works right for a long time, but did that. Give you the free time to get all this together. Yeah. The James Baker whose who who runs fullness performance, and he's kind of been bugging me to kind of put together for a while, so it's the right time to do things. For sure I think sometimes when there's little bit more free time or downtown I know for me. It's been a lot easier to get a wider spectrum of guests on for sure on my own end with all this on the for the podcast, but I I was really still I know our our last time with the trainers versus racers was awesome. I mean it gave me so many things to think about an implement, and so I was super excited to see that you add the. New a new categorization, and of course we talked about this like no, not the goal isn't to put athletes boxes, per se, but just the more we can learn about how different outfits respond is is just so incredible and interesting to me and so. Let's kick this off. Let's to tell us about. Your your category, your categorization, concentric, elastic and metabolic maybe to start with the history of it, like where where did all this come from in terms of you? Your journey of deciding or or determining which athletes I know, track sprinters. We're talking about specifically, but which types of sprinters were responding to which types of training? So. Springtime into briefly set the scene fest. I think if you watch. The Olympics there are many commonalities inconsistencies around. Will faucets sprinters in the while. Technically, but there's also some variation, right and all too often this variation schroeck officer. As an idiosyncrasy oh. You know this athlete would run faster if they run like Basil D'Amato, isn't a nominee, so we shouldn't coalpit. Will actually might be inefficient for one person might be actually efficient for a number, and it's the same if you analyze training program I mean in this hundred meter final that it's going to be some very similar themes that coaches through the face, but that also be some very different themes. We know people have run. Teno running never more than two times I meet some of the way up to five hundred six hundred arrests so very early mccutchen career realized that Sanofi just one in very different need to the program that they were given an equal equally, they responded very differently to kind technical changes well. Her when this happens. Time and time again over to for years you start to see some click consistencies than pictures around what kind of profile you haven't is and then to go that people have been putting some ideas out on the topic around neuro. Typing in action type toilets fouts five typing stuff from Hank. Ulcers put some stuff out around muscular Hashtag as good a reset from the distance, running community around Ariel terrestrial runners, so it's kind of blended all these ideas and something that. into something I understand in seeing can apply on a consistent

It's Time to Build
"Every western region was unprepared for the corona virus pandemic despite many prior warnings. This monumental failure of institutional effectiveness will reverberate for the rest of the decade. But it's not too early to ask why and what we need to do about it. Many of us would like to pin the cause on one political party or another on one government or another but the harsh reality is that it all failed. No Western country or state or city was prepared and despite hard work and often extraordinary sacrifice by many people within these institutions. So the problem runs deeper than your favorite political opponent or your home nation. Part of the problem is clearly foresight. A failure of imagination. But the other part of the problem is what we didn't do in advance and what we're failing to do now and that is a failure of action and specifically are widespread inability to build. We see today with the things we urgently need. But don't have we don't have enough corona virus tests or test materials including amazingly cotton swabs common reagents. We don't have enough ventilators negative pressure rooms in ICU. Beds and we don't have enough surgical masks shields and medical gowns as I write. This New York City has put out a desperate call for rain. Ponchos to be used as medical gowns. Rain Ponchos in twenty twenty in America. We also don't have therapies or a vaccine despite again years of advanced warning about bat born corona viruses. Our scientists will hopefully invent therapies Anna vaccine but then we may not have the manufacturing factories required to scale their production. And even then we'll see if we can deploy therapies for a vaccine fast enough to matter. It took scientists five years to get regulatory testing approval for the new Ebola Vaccine. After that scourges two thousand fourteen outbreak at the cost of many lives in the. Us We don't even have the ability to get federal bailout. Money TO THE PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES. That need it. Tens of millions of laid off workers and their families and many millions of small businesses are in serious trouble right now and we have no direct method to transfer them. Money without potentially disastrous. Doha's a government that collects money for all its citizens and businesses. Each year has never built a system to distribute to us. When it's needed most. Why do we not have these things? Medical Equipment and financial conduits involve no rocket science whatsoever at least therapies and vaccines are hard making masks and transferring. Money are not hard. We could have these things but we chose not to specifically. We chose not to have the mechanisms the factories the systems to make these things. We chose not to build. You don't just see this smoke. Complacency this satisfaction with the status quo and the unwillingness to build in the pelvic organ healthcare. Generally you see it throughout Western life specifically throughout in American life you see it in housing in the physical footprint of our cities. We can't build nearly enough housing inner cities with surging economic potential which results in crazily skyrocketing housing prices in places like San Francisco making it nearly impossible for regular people to move in and take the jobs of the future. We also can't build the cities themselves anymore. When the producers of HBO's Westworld wanted to portray the American city of the future? They didn't film in Seattle or Los Angeles or Austin they went to Singapore. We should have gleaming skyscrapers and spectacular living environments in all our cities at levels way beyond what we have. Now where are they you see it? In education we have top in universities. Yes but with the capacity to teach only a microscopic percentage of the four million new eighteen year olds in the US each year or the one hundred and twenty million new eighteen year olds in the world each year. Why not educate every eighteen year old? Isn't that the most important thing we can possibly do? One built a far larger number of universities or scale the once we have way up the last major innovation in k through twelve. Education was Montessori which traces back to the nineteen sixties. We've been doing education research this never reach practical deployment for fifty years

U.S. signs peace agreement with Taliban
"Well you're listening to weekend on the BBC world service let's change gears now too at an event that's been making headlines this weekend and that's what happened yesterday when the United States and the Taliban signed a historic agreement in Doha the capital Qatar which could bring closer an end to the fighting in America's longest ever war the deal follows a weeklong reduction in violence in Afghanistan with the Taliban the Afghan army and U. S. led forces promising not to carry out major attacks against each other president Donald Trump welcome the agreement but warned the US would go back on its decision to take troops out of Afghanistan the Taliban didn't uphold its side of the deal I really believe the Taliban wants to do something to show that we're not all wasting time if bad things happen will go back and let the people know we'll go back we'll go back so fast it will go back with a force like nobody's ever seen well joining us now from our studio in Oxford is Lucy Morgan Edwards she's an expert and author on Afghanistan one of her books is called the Afghan solution she's also worked as a political adviser on the country to the European Union Lucy what do you make of the agreement signed yesterday good morning as I'm I mean essentially the agreement seems like it's a it's a bit of political fix and it's that where it's a little bit early to be trumpeting this as a major success story it looks like a win win for the Taliban because they get to have five thousand prisoners released R. and they've agreed to scale down violence I mean at the moment it's the winter season this is less violence anyway the Americans have agreed that they're going to remove about for eyes well they're going to go down from from twelve thousand to eight thousand troops but this is going to be over time and since they're not actually withdrawing all of that troops I mean certainly not before the US election so it's starting to look a little bit like it's a bit of a bit of a the background sort of deal going on between trump and the Taliban but can you argue that that most agreements are political fix there's going to be a win win on both sides for it for anyone to be interested in signing something of course but I mean I'm fortunate with this deal they haven't included a wrong which is a major use regional player it's absolutely essential that Iran has to be included the Afghan government have pretty much been precluded from the agreement as well awestruck Ghani the that the president that the president off honest on has unfortunately I mean I understand he's not getting on well with on my father's side who is is leading the talks for the US but gonna himself has actually broken the high peacock high peace council which was the structure that that that had relative credibility to to partner in the talks and so is is as essentially left himself without without a structured to represent his own side in this so you know unfortunately we're leaving a country if if if if the west does move out and I certainly don't believe that the the Americans have any intention of leaving Afghanistan then with with such leaving behind in all K. state and everything that that that the doctor the doctor that implies and I understand that provincial council street those seats in in Kabul trade for something like five hundred thousand to five million US dollars because there is so many benefits attached to them so there was very very embedded corruption the the reconstruction efforts as if if one goes to the special inspector general the cigar and look out to the the the failure zone on the re construction side and on the corruption when you look at some of the reports its ups absolutely horrifying what's what's been going on and of course the massive increases in poppy and violent civilian casualties I mean the Taliban last year the Taliban there any hundred ninety five metric tons of poppy produced as it said the that's blossomed to to mmhm something like twenty five times note that for many many months many many multiples of these it's it's two thousand eight hundred times now okay Sir what yes I'm we leaving behind in all K. state if if we do indeed go Julie Norman yeah and this year is it fair to say that what we saw yesterday was really just I'm kind of a stepping stone to unlock the real part of the peace process in terms of being trapped any talks that will hopefully start later this spring and is is that a fair way to look at the absolutely yes it's very much a sort of announcement before any of the meat has been had decided I mean it's it's a sort of structure a framework which needs to be filled in you want to write to me and what do you think it will take to effect change in Afghanistan political changes stable change I mean in my opinion the problem is is that the Pentagon and the CIA are up to the next in the drug trade as our other intelligence agencies this is like our America all over again that we had in in the far east in the sixties and seventies of the Vietnam War so if you talk about women's rights and democracy if you could get the framework right which is the international engagement is completely I mean Afghanistan is it's really the sort of cash cow for CIA black operations around the world with with that with the puppy trade and this is all this is all being the sort of hidden side of this intervention on which the media not reporting properly and but not those of us who what's the or wearables and we were you know when I was working for the European Union ambassador in the the E. U. plus cliff as we were we were getting information about drug tools that will going through different borders and so on and and we were trying to convey them to to to the US to to the government and so on we were basically being asked to to stop talking about this I'm white and Lucy why do you why do you think that is simply because because you say it's so lucrative that's why this is really been one not discussed very widely it's one of the most lucrative trades in in the entire world and of course it's very easy it's very easy to hide poppies easily tradable it sits on the black market it's it's I mean that's why they brought back the warlords in two thousand one there were many other alternatives I mean one of that which I would write about in my book about up to hawk who had made deals with with senior Taliban and with with the tribal leaders and even warlords to to fold the Taliban regime through an indigenous peace process an indigenous Pasha and of course that wasn't wanted it it's much more it's it's this is hard to geopolitics this is you know because I was born in his family of a close relations with the CIA he's you know who's his education in India and is of course important regional player in this but term you know that the very sad story about Afghanistan is really the complicity in corruption

A Look Back at HIV
"Before we jump in. Let's clarify what exactly HIV and AIDS are good call. Hiv stands for human immunodeficiency virus which is a virus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or AIDS. Yes so HIV is a retrovirus which means it is an rn. A virus that is a cellular machinery from the infected cell to do a reverse transcription of itself a DNA version which is inserted into the cells on DNA when the cell becomes active. It will make new copies of the virus that go out and continue the cycle and this is important because the drugs that we use today to combat HIV a variety of antiretroviral agents target different points in the cycle. The right combination of drugs can keep the viral load solo that it isn't detectable exactly so HIV infects a specific immune cell the CD four cell and over time the virus kills a CD foresaw which being part of the immune system plays a critical role in the body's ability to fight infection as de decline. The body becomes susceptible to opportunistic infections. Right these are often infections caused by pathogens that are normally present in on or around the body but a healthy immune system recognizes them and keep them in check someone with the depleted immune system however is susceptible to unusual infections. That healthy folks don't need to worry about. Plus they're they're susceptible. To all the irregular infections even healthy people get okay so an untreated course of goes something like this. A person is infected with HIV. The virus being transmitted during sexual activity directly into the bloodstream during childbirth or breastfeeding or a blood transfusion at this point the virus makes its way to the lymph nodes where has access to lots of CD. Four cells and replicates like crazy? This goes on for about three weeks three or four weeks. The patient may experience a viral type of illness during this time period. Fever swollen glands rash but not everyone experiences this yes and it feels like a regular just viral infections. So you don't really think about that. That might be what it is but after about two weeks the viral load in the blood is at a peak and CD four levels fall. This is a period of time where it is really easy to transmit the disease to another sexual partner because the viral load is so high after about six months the viral load and CD. Four count stabilized to set point and the chronic phase issue begins. This can last a up to ten years without treatment during which HIV gradually destroys CD. Four cells at some point the CD four count gets low enough. That opportunistic infections are possible. Yes and that's how we define AIDS either the CD. Four count is below two hundred cells per mil or the patient has an AIDS defining conditions such as retinitis from cmv cytomegalovirus or invasive cervical cancer or many many others so this was the typical course of disease for people early in the epidemic. Did you amy? That AIDS was around before the Nineteen Seventy S. That's when the epidemic began but it is believed that the virus jump from chimpanzees to humans in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in one thousand. Nine hundred and sporadic cases were reported from then until the mid seventies when the epidemic got its legs. Very interesting now. It wasn't until Nineteen eighty-one that we really understood what was happening in. La There were five young gay men who develop Mrs to screen pneumonia PCP which is now new. Mississippi'S VICI pneumonia. I know I can never get used to that. I still call it. Pcp Yeah. I'm sure a lot of school. It was pretty much standard at the time right. I mean that was like defy so defining but anyways another group in New York in California who developed Kassy's sarcoma which is an aggressive cancer caused by the human herpes virus eight that wouldn't normally happen without a suppressed. Immune system right both of those diseases. And by the end of that year there were two hundred seventy cases of severe immune deficiency among gay men and nearly half had died. Yeah that we knew so fast forward. A few years by the end of nineteen eighty five. There were over. Twenty thousand reported cases coming from every region of the world. The virus was officially named in Nineteen eighty-six and in nineteen eighty seven A. Z. T. was introduced. The this was the first antiretroviral drug this drug worked by inhibiting the initial reverse transcription of the virus into DNA. This was a very exciting development because the epidemic was growing quickly. Now there were three hundred seven thousand reported AIDS cases worldwide compared to the twenty thousand. You mentioned just fine. Harsh prior and two hundred and seventy just nine years prior to that. It's impressive how. The pharmaceutical industry kind of ramped up so quickly research development. Yeah and those remember. Those were the reported numbers so they estimated that there were actually a million AIDS cases in another eight to ten million living with HIV worldwide. At that point. So if you're younger just in med school residency right now. It's hard to explain. How unsettling this was that how fast it was spreading right. Yeah and these patients were so sick and dying in such large numbers and there didn't seem to be in and site to the expansion of the epidemic. So there's a lot of fear and misinformation out there the had a policy to not allow those infected with HIV into the country and it was still viewed as a gay disease. So that created a lot of stigma for the LGBTQ community so by nineteen ninety three. There were two point five million AIDS cases globally the US Congress dug in and voted to continue the travel ban. Things are not looking good even with easy. T- which wasn't really panning out as everyone had hoped. And the fact that it was approved at all was questioned by many. Yeah so but in one thousand nine hundred things really started changing. This was kind of a turning point. The first price inhibitor was approved these inhibit the protease enzyme. Which is important in the translation of HIV v? Virus back into Aurigny. Yeah and this was the beginning of Heart H. A. RT highly active antiretroviral therapy and it immediately dropped deaths from AIDS related diseases by at least sixty percent but still there were thirty three million people living with HIV by nineteen ninety nine and fourteen million people had died since epidemic began. Those are huge as is to be expected the UN had to step in and negotiate prices to make antiretroviral therapy available to the people who need it The World Trade Organization that announce the Doha Declaration allowing developing countries to manufacture generic versions of drugs. Go See Fire Dallas buyers club. Yes also yeah so in the two thousands people who needed it weren't getting treatment aids. Was the number one cause of death in sub Saharan Africa. That blows my mind by the two thousand ten. A lot of goals had been set to get treatment where it was needed and have the spread of HIV an organization such as the UN and the World Health Organization and individual government agencies are getting involved at this point yeah the US finally lifted the travel ban for people with HIV treatments that decrease the chance of spread were discovered pre exposure prophylaxis or prep was shown to reduce transmission between male and male sexual partners by about forty four percent. Yeah in two thousand. Eleven research demonstrated that early initiation of antiretroviral treatment reduce transmission to partners by ninety six percent. So this is a real game changer. Because until this time the antiretrovirals weren't started until HIV was had started advancing and causing aids. So this is when they started the treatment early after the infection was discovered and it really changed things as far as transmission. Yeah as related. Deaths fell thirty percent from the peak. Year two thousand five and thirty five million people were living with HIV dramatic slowdown in the spread of the epidemic compared to previous decades. Yeah Okay but now we may find yourselves at a standstill here. We are twenty twenty because the immediate crisis of the wildfire spread and almost certain death is well behind us. Attention has waned key populations that account for over half of new infections are not receiving access to combination therapy and the gap between resource need and provisions as widening. The funding is is shrinking. It's pretty typical right. Yeah as a species. Humans aren't very good at thinking long term. If it's not an immediate threat it's not threat right well. It is a threat to those populations. So there's clearly still stigma that has marginalizing

Now in Boston studying all this at Harvard Shorenstein center. She's also involved in an effort called comp- Roba a collaboration between twenty five Brazilian newsrooms to identify and debunk fake news Cordova tells me that the fake story. She seeing on WhatsApp are out of control. We make fun actually because the the misinformation campaigns in Brazil, the sometimes can get absurd in what way at their supported in beliefs and fears that are totally known saints like Venezuela supported by Hezbollah or stuff like this. And I was coming here. And I had a discussion we friend that teaches at Harvard. She was trying to convince me that the right wing candidate was the antidote to Brazil you knock becoming Venezuela supported by Hezbollah. So was this teacher Brazilian she's Brazilian she's Brazilian. She probably heard this thing's Phya. What in? I I started to laugh, and it was like, yeah. You know, what leasing here's the website of compressor. This is. Ally. This this this is known since please your teacher Harvard. But people believe this things. So is that one of the rumors that Hezbollah connection with Venezuela? Is that one of the rumors that spreading on what's happened Brazil? Yes, this is pretty new this is fresh rumour. Then there are the older stale remers making a comeback as Brazil's presidential race heats up. For example, we had a room more about the left candidate being the creator of something called geeky. Which is supposed to be an indication. Okay. It to teach kids how to be gay. Well, the the implication being if you vote for the wing candidate, you're going to have gay kits in schools, and there will be connections with the government and a Venezuela and Hezbollah at the same time. I see what you're saying by absurd just to be clear, what definitive links have there been between these disinformation campaigns and either political candidate like the charge gyro Bolsonaro launch. This is is that a legitimate claim. This is a role more from two thousand twelve it's two up in the website of the right-wing candidate. He created this false information. He was a member of the the congress. So he took this issue to the congress, and several congress person that are religious they supported him in this story, and this became a mole. Mr. both narrow is also accused of creating another monster a big one last week a Brazilian newspaper reported that the right wing candidate was working with local marketing firms so by bundles of phone numbers and use them to mass text propaganda to Brazilians through what's up Brazilian. Authorities are investigating those claims. In the meantime, people like as Adare Cordova are trying to put out the flames before they turn into a fake news wildfire in Brazil, what's very interesting is that as far as I've seen of what's up news in this information. There is no story that is not in both flat forms Facebook. And what's up what we see are different types of presentations? So on what's up, you have an audience. Like, there's this thing happening you have to act. So there's a call to action that's very strong share this or otherwise our country is going to be a. Waylaying five years share these to save our country stuff like this. On facebook. You have the same narrative is the same narrative, but Facebook is more sophisticated they have videos, they have texts specially Souphanouvong's all the things that make people believe to what I see is that there's an entire ecosystem. If you look just to watch them. We're not getting all the picture. I mean, a I want to suggest that Brazil's different from any other place in the world. But I mean is there a kind of a cultural thing here with the contagion of these these fake news stories? Yes, we have a social and economic component that need to be taken into account when you talk about fake news. And what are those guys?

So basically, that's Elon Musk's hyperloop the. Like high-speed rail on steroids. Pneumatic tube. We'll get into that. In the meantime, in terms of air flight the longest flight right now on the planet is seventeen hours fifty minutes. It's cutter airlines. They're going from Auckland. New Zealand to Doha Abu Dhabi Doha. Adobe? Sounds except out of a cartoon does seventeen hours fifty minutes. The second longest flight originates in San Francisco. It's San Francisco to Singapore that seventeen hours twenty minutes did know that that's the United flight Qantas has the third longest as Dallas to Sydney that's seventeen hours five minutes. So now what's happening is we've got Singapore Airlines. They're gonna be doing a nineteen hour flight. It's New York to Singapore, nineteen hours, and when they offer this flight, by the way, no academy seats, which is I can't imagine sitting for that long. No. So they're going to be doing that. Then there's going to be another. Singapore Airlines is also going to do an LA to Singapore. That's eighteen hours. So those are going to be the longest flights. So let me see cooped up in terrible. Yeah. Two hundred twenty two foot to thirty five hundred feet for nineteen hundred. Nope. That can do I need little legroom. I'm good I need some. Well, it's like I told you where we went to Europe over the summer for my son's wedding. There were a couple delays. And the bottom line is we were in the same fuselage for twenty hours. And thank God. We had upgraded I'm serious. I would have gone Batty. I would have gone nuts. And in fact, the airline. Did it was really really smart United. Okay. Free drinks for everybody free drinks free food for everybody. And so they totally ran out of everything. But at least everybody got stuff for free for a while. You know, what I've said smart. Yeah. With those new long flights Howard. Are they do they have bigger gas tanks? Now, those okay. Better fuel efficiency of some excellent point. So. A couple of things first of all the price per barrel of oil. Is less than it was is is makes it affordable. Also, they've got these new a three fifty dash nine hundred ultra long range aircraft that they're gonna use for the route. Wow. So okay, new planes that can fly farther gases, more affordable. So they think they can do this. I do not want to be on that first flight when they test this out. Well, remember last week you had that story about the plane that almost ran out of fuel. What? Headwinds now a seventeen hour flight nineteen hour flight. Yeah. This is nine hundred hours of flight. Yeah. You're right. That's it. Okay. Now here that's one that's going to be one.
