FBI Report: Bias-Motivated Killings At Record High Amid Nationwide Rise In Hate Crime
"Nineteen saw a record high for reported hate crime murders in the united states according to the annual hate crime statistics report released on monday by the fbi. Hate crimes are described by the f. b. i. as an offense motivated by bias toward race ethnicity ancestry religion sexual orientation disability gender and gender identity fifty. One people were murdered as a result of hate crimes in two thousand nineteen more than double the number in two thousand eighteen and the largest figures since the federal government began tracking the numbers in the early nineteen nineties. This total includes the twenty three people who were killed in the el paso mass shooting last august. The suspect patrick crusius is facing federal. Hate crime charges overall. There were seven thousand three hundred and fourteen hate-crimes with eight thousand five hundred fifty two victims reported in two thousand nineteen by law enforcement agencies. Who sent data to the fbi. There was a two point seven percent increase from two thousand eighteen and a reversal in what had been three years worth of reported hate crime. Incidence declining the fbi's report is another reminder that we have much work to do to address hate in america southern poverty law center or espy elsie president and ceo. Margaret wang said in a statement each of these incidents represents the targeting of an individual or community for violence or vandalism because of their identity or personal characteristics more than half of the offenders in the crimes cited targeted individuals because of bias against their race. Ethnicity or ancestry as was the case allegedly for crusius twenty one percent of all the crimes are motivated by a bias against religion and sixteen percent. Were motivated by a bias against sexual orientation among the rises seen in the statistics in two thousand nineteen. There were five hundred. Twenty seven reported anti hispanic hate crimes up from four hundred eighty five and two thousand eighteen. There were nine hundred and fifty three report. Crimes targeting jewish people and jewish institutions in two thousand nineteen up from eight hundred and thirty five in two thousand eighteen. A slight decrease in crimes against african americans was apparent. Meanwhile with the total hate crimes reported dropping from one thousand nine hundred forty three to one thousand nine hundred and thirty but while the fbi's data represents the most detailed study on hate crimes in the us advocates believe it still falls short of capturing the true extent of hate crimes rather hate crimes. Are consistently underreported wang says. Since a large portion of police headquarters and agencies are not mandated to report hate crimes out of the fifteen thousand five hundred and eight law enforcement agencies that participate with fbi crime data collecting only two thousand reported at least one hate crime in two thousand
Seattle Police announce arrests related to arson, bat assault on officer
"Charging decision in the Briana Taylor case of a living back at the end of September, September 24th or so there was national protests about that decision. And, of course here in Seattle, there were protests. And that was the weekend that we saw the one protester who said the officer ruled his bicycle over his head. And in that same demonstration, there were some fires lit Dumpster fires, things like that. And then a cop that was hit in the back of the head. With a baseball bat. So originally there was an arrest of a Jacob Greenberg, who's 19 for the Dumpster fires, And that was several weeks ago He was released and then last week he was rearrested again. Shifty, has talked about the arrest today. The actions alleged in these cases clearly demonstrate the ongoing violence. It continues to be connected to some of the riots occurring across the city. Jacob Greenberg is charged with assault in the first degree for hitting an ESPY officer in the head with a metal bat. So hard during a riot that the officer's helmet was cracked. I'm sure you've seen some of these photos. These disturbing images on your broadcast and on social media. According to charging documents after the brutal attack, the national from Kirkland Express remorse Not for potentially fatally assaulting itself. For the fact that the officer was wearing a helmet that most likely saved his life. Greenberg also texted a friend that he would like to and I quote slit every SBD throat. So that was in the charging documents of this same 19 year olds who is the stepson of a former state lawmaker who Is accused now of hitting that officer over the head with the bat. Did you guys see that It was viral video when actually so he's not charged and he originally assigned said he was released to his family and the prosecutor had actually asked for a higher bail. I believe in that, but the judge went ahead and released him. Now he's being held on $750,000 bail. Thea. Other arrests related to protest that came last last week or recently, Dia's also talked about today. 20 year old Jonathan Do. Gir of Olympia is also in jail, charged with arson for throwing a flaming object. Ignited fused into a Capitol Hill's coffee shop that caused an immediate explosion. Luckily, no one was hurt. Distance regard for people's lives and safety by throwing flaming objects into a business. This can't be our new normal. Business is small and large, are struggling during this pandemic. Does that mean and it's completely unacceptable that this is the ongoing violence is on ly com pounding their challenges.
OT and IT integration for profit-driven operation
"Operational Technology and information technology are OT nit. This integration is required for sharing information on all levels of manufacturing organizations to achieve profit-driven operation or PDO. Process Industry companies implement real time production performance improvements that are line from the management level to the plant floor. For an example, here will look at a particular pedia solution, which takes production production performance indicators traditionally monitored by plant management on a weekly monthly basis embrace these indicators down to the technical and operations level using industrial best practices to create semantic performance indicators or what will refer to as espy is. These SPIC. Displayed in real time by utilizing big data from the distributed control system or the DS. This information helps operators, engineers, and upper management stay aligned to promptly improve production by providing performance alarms guidance messages in performance balanced score by using it technologies such as the cloud consulting services. It can't be incorporated to uncover additional improvements via the analysis of historical production performance parameters. This requires the merging of expertise in ot with the industrial internet of things with it technologies along with process industry best practices to enable production performance optimization over the life cycle of a process plant. Now. When I introduced pedio, some process plant personnel may confuse it with advanced process control and optimization in reality plants should implement all three of these technologies working concer advanced process control or AP see is used to control multiple control loops for partial process optimization such as increasing throughput reducing giveaway loss optimization is used to manage multiple ABC instances for entire processes. ABC optimization are very powerful technologies, but they do not work properly if the model is not updated on a timely basis in each often turned off by operators due to a lack of deep understanding. PTO addresses these issues by helping operators understand the effectiveness of ABC optimization through the visitor visualization of relevant s p. is and trade offs. This allows operators to make the decisions required to maintain timely updates. pedia Solutions Leverage real-time an accurate plant big data from a C. S and integrate this data with domain knowledge to create S.. P. is these SPF NAP typically connected from plant operation to plant management much like the human body uses synapses to connect nerves. SPIC encompassing five main management objectives and spent four levels of process Plant Organization for reference. These management objectives include production, prophet, energy reliability, and safety, and these roles include leadership, management, technical, and operations. The high level management objectives are production, profit, energy, reliability, and safety like mention, and of course, the organizational levels of leadership management technical in operation. So spa creation requires extensive domain knowledge of the process plants operation. For example, by applying hundreds of personal years of collective experience and expertise companies have structured more than twenty eight hundred S P is for refinery operations in eight hundred espy is for ethylene operations. These espy is must be customized for each situation because each process plan is different, once S P is are created, the next step is to configure DASHBOARDS pedia software uses S P, is to configure many different types of real time SPIC dashboards. Each process units home dashboard gives an overview performance related to the five management objectives of Production Prophet Energy Reliability, and safety. This dashboard hopes users visualize SPIC balance on the five management objectives by showing what objectives are alarm or alert state and what SPIC trade offs may be required to address. Each issue cooking on a roll level leads a user to another dashboard appropriate to that users level of responsibility. These dashboards can then be used to improve operations as each provides not only an indication of current status but also advise for making improvements pedia software automatically links all of These dashboards to coordinate actions on all levels of plants organization by providing performance alarms, guidance messages, and performance balanced score pedio helps leadership management and technical and operations. Personnel stay aligned to promptly improve production performance operation and technical personnel relying ot to dashboards and take actions while management and leaderships more often employ it to view dashboards provide advice ot it. Integration is therefore crucial because it allows information to be communicated in real time across all levels of the organization. Ot I immigration is also essential for enabling consulting services from external experts located remotely from the plan cloud digital twin and other services allow plant data to be communicated globally
NBC/WSJ poll: Support for Biden has almost doubled
"NBC News Wall, Street Journal poll released yesterday, and support. For Joe Biden has almost doubled after just last week's debate the poll taken before trump announced he had covid nineteen has biden by fourteen, fifty, three to forty nine still with us our professionals. Steve Schmidt, Robert Gibbs Robert I am duty-bound to point out I think Hillary Clinton on this date in two thousand sixteen was ahead by exactly fourteen points with that in mind. What would your charge to your fellow Democrats be? Well I would. I would ignore the polls. And go full steam ahead on what you have to do to win this race next continue to assure the American people. That you're capable and that you've got a plan for implementing that. The. Change that you need to see in the White House but I think Lewis startling about that poll. This race has been remarkably stable Brian it's been stable for a really long time regardless of all that gets thrown at it, and so the NBC NBC eight previous polls, the average margin was Biden by eight percent in February it was Biden by eight percent in September. It was Biden by eight percent now it's fourteen. The American people got a good hard look at Donald Trump in that debate and they liked absolutely nothing of what they saw I don't think Joe Biden is going to win this race by fourteen points. The one of the last moments Donald Trump had available to him to begin to change the trajectory of this race in his favour not only did he miss that opportunity, but he actually handed a significant amount of support with now just four weeks left in this race to his opponent Joe. Biden. Mister Gibbs makes a great point Mr Schmidt and let's go further on. Politics. Steve Mitch McConnell is seventy eight. He is a polio survivor he is scared to. Of Covert nineteen by all available evidence politically, he is scared to death of not pushing through the third Supreme Court nominee what's going to happen? Do you think in the US Senate three Republican members down with positive diagnoses? Well look specifically when it comes to stopping a Supreme Court Nomination Brian you have to think about it like trying to rob a train before you can get to the safe with the gold on it on the train to derail the train you have to slow it down you have to be able to get on the train and so what the Democrats have to do is not be focused on delaying the hearings pass the election they need to be focused on delaying the hearings for the first day they need to push it back one day, and then once you can push it back one day you can. Get the second day, but the reality is is it'd be very difficult for the Senate to hold onto the time line because total recklessness of so many of these senators and of course, trump at the trump administration and all of the chaos that we're seeing play out over over this weekend, and then elect Wurley for the Senate I. Mean This is just a disaster I. Think Certainly Mitch McConnell understands. He's on the precipice of losing his Senate majority. It's almost a certainty that he will. It may be a wipeout. You see for example, Mike spn Mississippi Mike espy is in a very close race now you see. The Kansas Senate race, the Democratic candidate is points up there. So the it seems like the walls are collapsing on all of this. This was a terrible terrible week for trump and for all the trump of batters, enablers and accomplices in the United States Senate I, mean, it started with the with the debate and it got worse from there the. Senior leadership of the campaign scandalized there is a mutant in the campaign on Friday night. PEOPLE DON'T WANNA show up to work too terrified to go into the White House profound mistrust of their leadership, and then there's reports out tonight from the incomparable Gabe Sherman for example, a Vanity Fair talking about the divide in the family looking at how crazy trump's behaviors been. Over the course it is last weekend with Donald Trump junior apparently talent people that they have to try to rain man knowing what a disaster this is. So my view is this is all coming down the Walzer collapsing we're seeing that play out everything we're seeing trump do is from a position of weakness and the idea now that he's going to be able to. CAST himself as some type of hero for having defeated cove at I think is. A ludicrous delusion on the part of him Sean Hannity and his

"espy" Discussed on What A Day
"Pretty Gangsta Yeah didn't do a great job being communications director there in my opinion but nope, well, onto our topic today. So a lot of the conversations specifically. In, recent days has naturally been about the presidential election but as evidenced by president trump's ability to ram through judges potentially including a third Supreme Court nominee, the Senate is extremely important to and there are tons of winnable races for the Democrats. This year including in Maine Colorado in North Carolina but another race that might be flying a little bit under the radar is the Senate seat. In, Mississippi that's right. So the Democratic candidate in that race is Mike espy he's a former congressman and was actually the first black congressman to represent Mississippi. Since reconstruction he also secretary of Agriculture under President Clinton and now he's running against Republican incumbent Senator Cindy Hyde Smith in two thousand, eighteen B also ran against her special election runoff took place at the end of November and. While, SB lost that race he got over forty six percent of the vote marking one of the closest Senate races in the state in years leading up to that Election Democrats thought that it was a winnable race in part because Hyde Smith made a number of discussing remarks including a joke about a quote public hanging in a state with a dark history of racist violence and lynchings. I wish that racism was less popular to. Historically the south has been scapegoated as the most racist place in the country. But things are obviously changing with a younger generation finally getting the chance to make their voices heard and vote. So with espy's race, the while the polling has been spotty, a recent poll showed him almost even with highsmith also his fundraising his shot way up since the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and he recently got -dorsements from democratic. Nominee, Joe Biden and congresswoman I oughta Presley, we spoke to him yesterday about how cove in nineteen has impacted state, which is currently seeing an uptick after a much bigger when the summer as well as the Supreme Court and how he hopes to bring Mississippi together. Here's our conversation secretary Sp. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us today. Let me let me with you this morning. Thank you. So. Mississippi. Hasn't had a Democrat in the US Senate in over thirty years and you started off this race behind but a recent poll shows you within just about one percent of your opponent. Where do you think that that support is coming from right now? Do you think that you've gotten enough support from the Democratic Party on a national level helping here? Really good question. So beg much both of you and thanks for having me. Let's off. I'm going to answer that first question. Would they quote you know from for reverend bog, your brim bog with people scan bang he. said to me L. Zone Uzumcu embracing, and he said, my Mississippi is not so much. Reyad is it is unorganized. So it means is that had there been invest spent in this state. You know in data develop and and and research it and getting candidates to run for office of a widow what we would've add much much job Maurice of progress in Mississippi when it comes to Democrats and progressive a days in office it running all of his so I ran eighteen months ago but US Senate in the same a race against the same incumbent you know especially election. We only had six months to run. We were the last. Race in the entire country and we steal although we had two. Nasdaq candidacy stage, a campaign buying staff train a staff bill the money we got forty seven percent of the vote for dessert vote. So so we have more black voters per capita Mr than any state in the nation. So let's start with that. I noted win this time. We had to build a track while locomotive to run bill the runway PLOP planet take off and bill had breached the like across it and was behind me. So we'll built it now Avocados Addi- dot running once a loss last time. So we've got something amazing your bill, and what we have to do is dinner bill the largest highest deepest most robust. Coalition and Mischievous Fisher together vote here at about five weeks. So we create coalition that that we need. And saw biggest for a cutlass effect as the reason why? I Bow George fluids murder. Shock the conscience it let all the young people know. So can be angry it's okay protest. oles calls less morph the anger and the protests and deal maybe even something long-lasting. Go ahead and let someone. Who not only looks like you but WHO UNDERSTANDS SYSTEMIC RACISM IN AMERICA? You don't have to talk so much about police misconduct. Whoever you elect already knows that exist unless it's work to solve it. and. Then we had the Mississippi flag, which is The emblem on it that was taken down in about. Two months. Over this summer I'd up sixty six at never thought that flag was going down. So. Then thank came down and then just shows that people now want. A leader to represent. The Mississippi going now to the Third Decade of the twentieth century and then the last element. And I'll stop and ask your question is are of. Death, just get GINSBURG and then shown everybody around the nation. All raises are play all racist notice Mississippi, with its. You know only pass can be lifted with more infrastructure. Read Barbara said give us revenue if we can. pull out the great black voter turnout. It missive was history and we can elect someone that's GonNa protect the affordable care act that can make sure we have medicaid expansion. For sure. Yeah I mean healthcare has been a really huge part of your campaign this year in particular expanding Medicaid for Mississippi. So can you talk a little bit about why that's so important especially in your state? It's important in our campaign because you write a kill list number one issue in out state. Even doing the pandemic I mean, we are small state. We've just about three million people but now we've got three thousand of those folks did. Ninety thousand, almost one, hundred, thousand Evan been addicted and. Of course, almost a real estate, there's a disproportionate impact on African. American. So we have to do is. Is. Lived the bottom third about it. Strap. In Education. Job Opportunities N Hill Care. The reason was so low. The reason we have number fifty last if people are so tired of being last is because bottom third is so low. So we just lifted there we lived gorgeous of Mississippi from. Up to you know within midpoint. So, we have to do at birth with healthcare because everything leads from healthcare gives you Zika learned you can't work. So if if you sick Yep, being pay your bills so we want to thirteen states without Medicaid expansion. All we have to do is just go and in this is the Legislative Braga, the state broadcaster. But as better legislator I can say ever be the hill senator. Albert broad legislature. To do what Oklahoma and Missouri when they've already done so. That's the number one issue in the campaign because this is the number one should Mississippi we know how to do it. It's already there is called the ACA got protect going to do that. For, sure. And on another issue you mentioned Justice Ginsburg. So I wanted to ask you about the supreme. Court briefly some of your potential democratic colleagues in the Senate Art Meeting with trump supreme court nominee and are speaking out about the timing of it being. So close to the election, how would you treat this entire situation? They're doing say think what misbegotten? Republican? Senators Doing his really really unfortunate. Because it it disrespects the American people. I mean, we've got an election here. In weeks and here in Mississippi. A state that I care about. the voting is voters are start. So I, really think I have been saying. And I'm bad about this I think that we just fat weeks out. So we can wait to get a new president name. A new president elected then that president ought to nominate. His. Person for this important lifetime. Position. And then we'll have a new senate. And hopefully, I'll be a part of it and then we can berm. That that's Gloviczki just. They just ran through. A direct. Risk. To the issue, we just spoke about healthcare costs at November tenth this the appeal of. Obamacare and and. The and I want to be there. But. That's why remnant do they want to repeal obamacare Repeal A. Repeal coverage for preexisting conditions. And in Mississippi six, hundred thousand. Those who have pre existing illnesses and thousands of thousand already who enjoy coverage. Off from the and his wrong. Yeah. So we're in the middle of a week where we had our first presidential debate with just you know the final two nominees and I'm sure you've seen that Donald trump refused to condemn white supremacy in the debate and he and his campaign have you know I would say? To clean it up since but that doesn't mean that they've outright said like we we've changed our position and we denounce it. So you know the senator you're hoping to unseat Mississippi has said some. Racist comments in the past. Obviously, this is a different kind of election year than any in my lifetime for many people in memory at all in with the president refusing to rebuke white nationalism, which obviously should be disqualifying in the your twenty twenty. How can we as a country move forward even after November? Greg question requested well I was debate last night as you did obviously. And I was shocked but you know this is the president that called gotten in. Full vicsal countries, and Demean Women and immigrants, and all of that. We know that he's doing all this for reason. Yeah he's He's trying to his Jonah China stir up the culture wars here here in American and is wrong I mean we need we need a president is a figure. Although stub a nation this unifying. In that just pulls everybody together, and that's why I'm so happy here in Mississippi that we. We took down the land I mean that blade was remedies of day. Woman being own another human being and yet it's still blind Bo hundred and sixty three years. Rented against a senator. Who had do thousand fourteen now? Will statewide of she was commissioned agricultural. Just that was usurped of agriculture. Yeah she went to the Jefferson Davis Museum. She went there. She tried all the little rebel kept with. That's dawn mental. She traveled a waistcoat. She held a veteran era rival. Now let me stop and say. If you WANNA go to the museum. Of whatever that's fine. The Mississippi bags in a museum, you want to see it go to the Civil Rights Museum that's wave love But then when she left she said This was the best of Mississippi's history. She said that we have a senator. said. Two. Those fourteen. That was the Best Mississippi position not not ninety fourteen now did she say that twenty fourteen so I'll tell you it is not a person who should represent Mississippi. Going into the third decades twitter virgin no, she's holding us back. That's why all the young folks survive and blow a for me. A lot of black lives matter folks or for me. That's why the ugly mobile. Gated. Those have makeup that twenty percent there. Because they know I'm going to rip on. Everybody You know better Louima lived and died for the right to vote as spoke this weekend and the Burma Vernon Damer Park Hattiesburg Mississippi it averted Damer was Dr. Bob. Just for just for exhorting others to vote. I believe they died or do flag the dad ball open boating they die at two against voter suppression. It's all I somebody there will ever London boat. If want to feel. Like they're living on the welcoming symbol in everyone to just shoot A. And so I would say `see last question. We just need. People who don't believe in divisiveness. That was Mike Espy who's running for Senate in Mississippi. If you want to donate to him and other competitive Democratic Senate candidates head over.

The Inside Scoop on Ben & Jerry's
"There's something really comforting about a pint of Ben and Jerry's even though it's full of sugar and Saturated Fat. It somehow feels okay. You know what I mean. Maybe it's the fair trade symbol on the front or the we buy from local dairy farmers on the side of the pine or most likely seeing Ben and Jerry's photo on it because you kind of know they're good guys that their hearts in the right place and the thing is all that peace and justice and love and equality stuff that Ben and Jerry's kind of tied together with brand it's real. It wasn't a gimmick it wasn't a strategy designed to attract customers. Because it's who they are. There weren't social enterprises back when these guys started and they certainly never plan to get rich but they did do well and they did do good and their amazing story of building. One of the most beloved ice cream brands actually begins almost sixty years ago. When Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield or at the same middle school on Long Island in New York? We were both fat. This kids we were both Nerdy not not in the mainstream socially. We were the two slowest fattest kids in gym class. You know if you're running around the track and you're half left behind everybody else. There's another guy there. Besides you get pretty friendly with a guy and did you end up going to the same high school. We went to Calhoun high school. We graduated. Barry was a math league. I was a debate club. I let her to debate letter and math. You guys grow up in Long Island. You Finish High School there and did you. Where did you go Jerry? Where did you go to College Ben? Where'd you go? I went to a lot of colleges. I went to Colgate I went to skid more I went to. Nyu went to the new school. What you did the circuit I dropped out of all those are And then I finally joined the university without walls which was the most unstructured college program at the time. The idea was that the whole world was your campus. You go out there and learn whatever you wanted to learn the new comeback to this administrative body and proved that you learn it and they give you a degree and I dropped out of there too so that was my college career still too much structure. Fan and Jerry. How about you? I went to Oberlin College in Ohio. I did four years straight. I was premed and applied to and got rejected from lots of medical schools on two different occasions. So so you guys were. I mean look failures. Let's be honest. Chat is untrue. But what happened after you graduate? How did you guys reconnect? Well I I was working Out of school for disturbed. Kids in the ADIRONDACKS. I was teaching pottery there and then I decided I wanted to try to learn a try to be a real potter. You know those who can't teach those who can do well. I tried doing and Nobody would buy my pots so I I left the adirondacks. I moved to New York City in order to get some more other influences on my pottery and of course it was so expensive to live in New York the needed to spend my time making rent driving cab and so I had this apartment. Pretty grungy apartment. Jerry showed up in New York. And you moved into Ben's apartment or you just you just ended up both by did sewed this after I graduated college after my first bout of medical school rejections I moved in with Ben in New York City and then I left and went to North Carolina and after my second bout of medical skirt Jackson's I connected with Ben Again and it was at that point we decided to Put our fortunes together and Open up a little shop which yeah which turned out to be an ice cream business. You know we. We didn't exactly think of it as a business. We thought of it as a venture like. Let's do something because we're right right. That's exactly right. Let's do something for a couple of years and then after we do that. Let's do something else. We talked about becoming cross country truck drivers after we did this ice cream shop so was ice cream. The the the main idea. Was that what you were going to do from from the beginning. Because because I've read that that you weren't really sure what kind of shop be we're GONNA do. Yeah we thought we would do something with food because we'd always liked to eat and we wanted to live in a college town so we thought about picking a food that was becoming popular in big cities but had not yet been brought to a college town and at that time the foods we thought about where bagels and homemade ice cream so we we went to a used restaurant supply store to price out BAGEL making equipment. This was G in G restaurant supply. All New York Luis There Luis this old guy with a gold chain around his neck and a big cigar in his mouth and He he told us we didn't have enough money to buy BAGEL equipment. He also told us I wouldn't screw you. Life's too short so I'm curious. I'm curious were you. Because you guys were mid twenties and did you sit down like you know. Hang out late nights putting out a strategy thinking Starting to think about different ideas you could do together and you meeting in in cafes during the day or was it a candidate even. How did you even start to develop this idea? It was just much less. It was just much more sort of the old days before cafe culture right right. No we did not meet in cafes to discuss this but we did discuss it quite a bit and we researched it quite a bit. We sent away for thirty espy. A pamphlets that cost between fifteen cents and three dollars per on all the different aspects of running a business. This is just like pamphlets from the from the small business that you were available. The government had how to calculate your break even point Pretty pretty basic stuff our goal when we open. Let's to make twenty thousand dollars a year a piece which was pretty good money. I guess in in the late. Seventy s right. No it was shitty money and it took us a long time to achieve that goal when you were in New York and of thinking about what you could do. How did you settle on on an ice cream shop? At how did you settle on Burlington Vermont? Well we settled on ice cream because Bega Clinton was too expensive and we settled on Burlington Vermont because originally we settled on Saratoga Springs and we actually moved to Saratoga Springs to get ready to open up the place and We're spending most of our time working on this business plan for an ice cream shop and doing a lot of research and we took this correspondence course and how to make ice cream. We were doing the correspondence course. We got the big college text book called. Ice Cream by Williams are buckled. Wendell as Arbox. Thank you the father of modern American ice cream and Jerry could understand that very complex textbook because he had this biochemistry background from his failed medical right so there were some other ice cream shop that opened up in Saratoga Springs before us it was called Afternoon Delight. Did they make good ice cream? We left town. They opened up. Just figure we'RE NOT GONNA WE'RE NOT GONNA open up here because we didn't want to compete and we figured we we had a better chance of success if we opened up in a place where there wasn't much competition and originally we were looking for warm rural college towns in the all. The warm ones already had ice creams as we went further and further north opened and the only town left that we knew anything about was BURLINGTON. Which you know is an hour and a half south. The Canadian border. It's cold there wasn't much ice cream here. I just want to pause for a SEC. Because I think a lot of people here Ben and Jerry's and think these guys were hippies which is true and they're you know they're sort of Activists and and but but that it was just kind of slapdash but you guys really did. Actually I mean there were some method to this you researched. You actually scope out possible locations. I mean this wasn't I mean you were really actually trying to do this in a methodical way. We're very hard worker. Yeah I mean no but when you describe it your your And yes all those things happen. But the way you're describing it is putting a lot more thought and planning into it then then we actually did. I mean we.

Police Raid Offices of Alexei Navalny
"This week police also rated the office of Moscow's most well-known opposition figure Alexei Navalny and his team on top of that one of Navan as close allies was forcibly conscripted into the Army Nikita. Cooler Chekhov knows that man from Navales Group the Anti Corruption Foundation Makita joined us from Berlin. They cannot taking forcefully to the army is just. There is no such legal way to do that. So in and this is why this is so unusual because it's just something not within the law and it's like so cynically taken to the place where there is no communication and there is no civil as as we know there is no civil transport of civil service to displace journalists won't be able to get there so lawyers won't be able to get unless they got the seats in the military the plane so this is a relatively new tactic. By the Kremlin what what concerns you most about it well because it's actually prison sentence for one year for the person because was he would be in the accident he won't be able to leave and it's and at the same time he has the military he has. Medical conditions prevented him from serving in the army. And so it's something extraordinary brain. It's something like like like arrest or detention Nikita. Help US understand. What exactly is the goal of love? FBI The Anti Corruption Foundation of his organization. What is the work you do? We are making the news with publish them. And we informed the General Russian from public on the on what is actually happening and how the corruption works in the highest level of the Russian government. This is just the basic idea at the same time since Aleksei Alexander Valentine's the pollution and he's like main platform is the Fighting corruption we we like we support his main political. restful and as I said earlier. You're in Berlin. Nick you're actually wanted In Russia by the F. Espy the domestic security forces out. Why are you willing to take these risks continuing to do this? Work on behalf of Putin's opposition. It was almost like seven or six six years ago when I at one point thought that time and not going to be anymore in the corporate environment. And I'm GonNa do something for my country and sideshow to sewer Kwalik State. So it was watching Alexei navalny crack jokes with his colleagues and make light of the raid while it was happening. I'm sure you haven't lost your sense of Russian humor humor but I mean how are you able to do that end in Berlin. Do you still see the humor in all this well If you are in Berlin it's easy to see Jolson that because you don't have that risks that your computer will be stolen by the police officers you get used to it. I think of our employees were at least interrogated or detained one Johnson. Some of them spent several months in in in in this shot detentions still nothing funny about detention so what. We're looking at Here at the end of 2019 is the Kremlin staging a number of schemes to silence the opposition in Russia. What's next for F-? PK The anti corruption foundation or are you looking more at twenty twenty one when there are parliamentary elections in Russia so we have implemented smart votes tactic or smart vote system in this year earrings summer and it was successful with say here. Are The candidates that time notes anyhow links to the United Russia. The pro-government So we expect that we go to use the same tactic. I'm this SMUT. Vote System in two thousand twenty one in the State Duma elections however it depends ends on the activities and the steps of the government because we if that they are trying to implement the new restrictions and Internet's attempting to implement them because they would like to block some particular contents or some particular videos in Youtube for example some particular website like the smart. Whoa let's see what they will do? So our tactic may change Makita Kulikov in Berlin. He works on the Investigations Unit at the Anti Corruption Foundation.

Navy Secretary forced out after Trump's war crimes intervention causes division and chaos in military
"So this is right now. Probably the the world's most famous talk yesterday. President trump congratulated America's favorite member of the Armed Services Code Him. The dog help take out the leader of Isis. And we just gave Conan a metal plaque. And it's really uh and I actually think exactly what was going on the mall. That was all smiles. That is not the mood at the Pentagon right now because while Conan might have a job former Navy secretary Richard Spencer does not to wash now where the navy sector has been forced to resign resigned at odds with President trump and his Pentagon secretary over the handling of navy seal warcrimes case as we reported yesterday so I went back to president. Trump's defense of navy seal convicted deposing with the corpse of a prisoner a teenager. Spencer's boss defense. Secretary Mark S. Burt originally said this was all about not respecting the chain of command but yesterday we started hear from the president himself and exactly how this forced resignation went down. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent. Martha Raddatz is with us. So Martha I mean what have we learned over the last twenty four hours. Well the president clearly is the one who ordered the Pentagon to let Eddie Gallagher keep his seal Triton Pin with any gallagher. Did you know that story Mary. Well they wanted to take away and I said No. You're not gonNA take it away. He was a fighter. He was one of the ultimate fighters tough guy and secretary criterion Esperer. The defense secretary said okay. Basically I give up. We're not gonNA have this review where it was possible that he could have lost that Trident. Pin meaning his signifies. He's a seal but more than that his rank which provides benefits as well and I was going to confuse Martha because originally Mark Asper that defense secretary saying. Hey Guy Brand under me Richard Spencer Kinda went behind my back and talk to the White House about this deal but the deal was let gallagher. Keep us pain. which would from the words of Richard Spencer it really sounded like he is not on board with US Navy seal or what the White White House is doing it? It's all very confusing and secretary. Asper made clear that he and Mark Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs wanted. The process has to go forward. Wanted to allow the Navy to review gallagher and whether he deserved to keep that tried to pin and his rank doc and benefits defense secretary. espy says he fired Spencer for going around him. In dealing with the gallagher issue what happened according to Esber. Is that Secretary Spencer. The Navy Spencer who is a trump appointee was talking to someone at the White House White House folks and saying look just let the review go forward But in the end he'll keep his Trident Pin Navy Secretary Richard Spencer just issued a statement saying he quote cannot in good conscience obey in order he believes violates his sacred oath. What does this whole controversy mean for president trump then and his role as commander in chief? I listened closely to the President from the Oval Office US on Monday. I think what I'm doing sticking up for our armed forces and there's never been a president that's going to stick up for them and has like like I have including for him to say look. They wanted to take his pin away. And I said you're not going to take it away. He was great fighter. And then you have a system where these warriors with him get put in jail for twenty five years. I'm going to stick for our warrior. I will stick up for the warriors. Okay thank you very much. Everybody those I people in Special Warfare Community who are totally against gallagher keeping that trident say that is not what their culture promotes their culture promotes order and discipline that when the fighting gets tough no matter how mad you are and how angry at that Isis fighter in what all those horrible people stand for. You're a better person and I've been asked him. I mean you know people in the military how I mean. Did you have a ballpark idea of how many of them agree with the president. That guys like gallagher kind of get a bad rap and that our soldiers need more leeway in the fog of war with prisoners of war. I mean are there are a lot of voices like that. I have not really talked to anyone. No one is reached out. In any way saying gallagher was a great guy we are back with Fox News alert update in the case of Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher and he certainly says he has his supporters and we have seen them. I'm trying to encourage people to join the most elite forces. This is a perfect example of how you can destroy that recruitment but I I was in touch with someone I vastly vastly respect. WHO's been in the navy seals for decades and he said the leaders of the special warfare community will feel like they've been chopped off at the knees he's by having the president's Stop Dish Review the jury acquitted gallagher on the most serious charges but convicted him proposing an picture next the body of a teen Isis fighter? They've already taken away about a hundred and Fifty Trident since twenty eleven for lesser offenses. And this this community is so proud of how they got there what they do and what they stand for and there are many of them who do not believe leave that Eddie Gallagher stands for that anymore. The plan is for him to retire soon but he will retire with that pin on his

Trump invokes executive privilege over entire Mueller report
"And we begin at the White House where the president today asserting executive privilege over special counsel, Robert Muller's full report on Russia's interference in the twenty sixteen election, all of this intensifying clash with congress over its investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. The move came just before the House Judiciary committee late this afternoon. Voting to hold of the attorney general Bill bar in contempt of congress for failing to turn over Muller's unredacted report and underlying materials, which the panel head subpoenaed. We are covering all of this. And we start with the House Judiciary committee hearing, and it's chairman Jerry Nadler of New York. Today, we consider report recommending that the house of representatives hold attorney general William bar in contempt of congress for defying valid subpoena issued by this committee. This is not a step. We take lightly. It is the combination of nearly three months of requests discussions and to go. She aviation's with the department of Justice for the complete unredacted report by special counsel mother into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election along with the underlying evidence. I appreciate the fact that the department responded to the offer we made to them last week and met with us yesterday in the last minute effort to reach an accommodation. We heard the department out responded to them in good faith. And after always said and done we unfortunately were still unable to reach agreement, and we proceeded with our markup today is I've said before we remain ready and willing to consider any reasonable offer made by the department even. After today's vote. But if a letter I received late last night from the department is any indication I am concerned that the department is heading in the wrong direction. In response to our latest good faith over the department of Brunton announced that if we move forward today, it would ask President Trump to invoke what it refers to protective assertion of executive privilege on all of them subject. Are subpoenaed just minutes ago took that dramatic step. Size misapplying the doctrine of executive privilege since the White House waved these privileges long ago and the department seemed open to sharing these materials with us. Just yesterday. This decision represents a clear esscalation the Trump administration's blanket defiance of congress constitutionally mandated duties. I hope that the department will think better this last minute outburst and return to negotiations as Coequal branch of government. We must have access to the materials that we need to feel our constitutional responsibilities in a manner consistent with past precedent. This is information we are legally entitled to receive. We are constitutionally obligated to review. And I would remind the members that the mullahs report is no ordinary run in the middle document details significant is conduct involving the president, including his campaigns willingness and eagerness to accept help from a hostile foreign government numerous misstatements if not outright lies concerning these act those acts and eleven separate incidents of struck the behavior by the president that more than seven hundred former prosecutors have told us warrant criminal indictment. If congress is not entitled with full unredacted Muller report, one must wonder what document we would be entitled to exhausted negotiations with the department of Justice have unfortunately left us back where we begin with unprecedented obstruction by the ministration that has now announces intention to block all the Thames congressional oversight of the executive branch. It is our constitutional duty to respond. Let me be clear if we request we are requesting entirely. Within our legal rights receive, and is no different from what is been provided to congress on numerous occasions going back nearly century. But we do not need to go back and forth to find a precedent. As recently as the last congress under Republican control, the department produce more than eight hundred eighty thousand pages of sensitive investigative interiors pretending to its investigation of Hillary Clinton as well as balloonists other material relating to the rush investigation and other ongoing investigations that production included highly classified material notes. FBI interviews internal text messages law enforcement memoranda. With respect to grand jury information in past cases involving Gatien's of presidential misconduct or misconduct by other high-ranking. Public officials the department of Justice as a matter, of course, the permission of a court through at least relevant information to congress if not to the public notably. This include several cases that were not impeachment inquiries, including the investigation into former agriculture secretary, Mike Espy and the Iran country investigations as well as other investigations that were not governed by the independent counsel law. But no matter the fact that the law and history clearly support the release the congress of this kind of information the Trump administration has taken obstruction of congress to new heights. Unfortunately, the attorney general has been all too willing to support the president in this endeavor. I would also like to respond to the concerns often raised by my good friend. The ranking member. Yes, how can the committee hold the attorney general in contempt for merely complying with the laws on the books, and how can we hold him in contempt when I have refused an offer to allow me to see certain redacted portions of the report, the answer's simple. I we issued a valid subpoena for the full report. And all of the underlying evidence department is come nowhere close to satisfying obligations under that subpoena. Those comments by the chair of the House Judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler of New York, again, the final vote along party line vote twenty four to sixteen and at the conclusion of the hearing chairman Nadler telling reporters, the US what he calls facing a constitutional crisis over the mullahs report from the Wall Street Journal there is this quote, the dispute centers around the unredacted version of the mullahs report and the underlying evidence some of which the Justice department says by law cannot provide because in. In part. It involves grand jury testimony that is secret Democrats subpoena the material last month saying it was necessary for congress to independently examined the material and the basis for Mr. molars findings. The journal goes on to write quote at the Trump administration's abroad, refusal to cooperate with any oversight request from democratic committees elevating tensions between the two branches to levels unseen since events of the magnitude of President Bill Clinton's impeachment, the Iran contra arms scandal during the Reagan White House and Watergate a move that invokes executive privilege is all but certain to provoke a constitutional challenge in the courts more details at wsJcom more from today's hearing Doug Collins is the ranking member of the House Judiciary committee. Mr this. The folks watching this log continues last week ours you and the fellow members of Jewish Democrats to respect the history of this committee business accordingly. We still have across southern border still. Feeling property here. We are wasting another bible week legislating calendar against the majority's war against the administration. Today, we are meeting to consider a resolution to hold attorney general Bill bar in contempt of congress. So let's take just a few moments and go through this. What is the justification for holding attorney general bar in contempt of congress for apps failed to abide by the special counsel regulation? No, he went above and beyond what the regulations far by transmitting the full report to congress with limited. Reductions could it be that the attorney general failed to accommodate the chairman's demands for information. No, he offered to let the chairman involve other democrat leaders review, the less redacted at the department of Justice, including a ninety nine point nine percent unredacted volume own strokes in an odd move for anyone demanding access to information. The chairman and the other elected Democrats giving access declined to view that report. Attorney general also volunteered to testify before this committee about the reports conclusions his role in sharing the report. And as we all witness, the democratic gangs force the attorney general to forego the schedule hearing last week on Monday just farm an offer to meet to discuss accommodations yesterday. They made a reasonable offer to avert this. And once again, they were rebuffed and the chairman the client, perhaps the end, the Democrats believe that there has been an unreasonable delay in the Justice farmers response to they're saying, no, that's not true. Either. In the chairman is moving to this contempt resolution at lightning speed. It has been less than twenty days since the chairman now subpoenaed documents from the Justice department when the oversight committee held Eric attorney general Eric Holder and content more than two hundred fifty days had passed between the subpoena and the committees vote to hold him in contempt more than four hundred and fifty days passed between the committee's initial request to the Justice department and the committee's contempt vote, dude Isra Democrats are moving more than ten times. Faster than oversight did with holder. They have moved from request to contempt vote in only forty three days. And yet the Justice department is still at the negotiating table waiting for the Democrats to arrive in good faith, while this rush without any valid legislative or administrative reason, we can only assume the Democrats that are led by the chairman have resolved to sully the Bill bars. Good name and reputation to accomplish to go. First Democrats are angry the special counsel report and did not produce the material or collusion's. They expected to pave their path teaching the president feel compelled remind everyone the report found offers to do so no one from the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with the Russian government, and you can't help. But notice the phrase Russian collusion has vanished from the democratic talking points and left a void in the narrative. The special counsel did not make a prosecutor determination structure in which was his job attorney general and a deputy attorney general did so according to their mandates law enforcement officials while giving no credence to the office of legal counsel. Opinion regarding that a sitting president as a result, they're angry their anger nations chief law enforcement officer and his dad had yelled acidy decide the didn't support charges for obstruction investigation into something. The president. Second Democrats are afraid of what your general will fund when he completes his own going review of abuses, the Justice, including how the Russian investigation began. Multiple news reports have suggested those conclusions could be explosive good in careers and could even lead to criminal prosecution rather than face that the Democrats resolve to neutralize Bill bar by attacking him in the office in his in his career. This is the first what a cynical mean-spirited counterproductive irresponsible staff. It is. Meanwhile, our economy urging unemployment amongst already groups historic low a recent Washington Post poll shows cratering support for impeachment, but Democrats have no plans, no purpose, and no viable legislative agenda beyond attacking visit ministration the house is more than four months into a democratic majority. How many bills passed by this committee have been signed into law chairman poor? You see reason I asked if you recognize the craving and insincere politics. It seemed to be yielding, no. No dividends for the American people. We've talked multiple occasions improved at last week's pharmaceutical market that I stand ready to work with you to promote solutions. I will not though become a bystander as we say, the attorney general, and this committee our democracy deserves better. Those comments from Republican Doug Collins of Georgia, the ranking member on the House Judiciary committee and on Twitter. The president wrote the following, quote, everyone wants to know who needs to be accountable because it took up to two years of our lives talking about the Russia involvement at proved no collusion and people want to trace it back to see how all of this happened treasonous hoax that the president at real Donald Trump. And at the White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about the president's use of executive privilege. Caroline, chairman Naylor says at the White House already waived executive privilege. He said the moment they reveal documents Muller, they waive the privilege that's black letter law. So how is the White House still claiming turning Adler would be a little? A bit more on the law. I'm not actually like understand better than he does. The attorney general is protecting information. Grand jury information confidential information had he cannot release the fact that the chairman knows that and continues to ignore it is absolutely absurd. What's not forget. This is the same guy who was to frayed to ask the attorney general questions himself if he can't do his job, and he can't understand basic rule of law and uphold it then he shouldn't be in

There is a city in America that has been playing in the NBA that has been playing under the radar even though they have had success after success after success. And that is Denver and last night they had a game against Golden State. And for the first time in a long time that city had a regular season game. That was very very meaningful. I remember when I got to Denver in the early two thousands. The team was a disaster. They were a mess. They were no. Good. Juwan Howard was giving away tickets. If you brought winter coats to the game. So he could he could give it to the underprivileged around the city. Are they drafted Carmelo Anthony? They started making the playoffs, but they would lose in the first round. And now they've got this basketball team in which most Americans couldn't name to players on the team. Heck most couldn't name one Nikola Yokich is a budding star but still relatively unknown in the league. And last night, they were hosting Golden State. Now, look January NBA games. We're really talking about entertainment. We're not really talking about positioning and movements up and down the standings quite yet. But most of the time when I watch an NBA game. It's just for entertainment to see the players do what they do best. So last night this warriors nuggets game was on my radar because the city of Denver was really into this and really wanted to shoot. A prove a point is the biggest regular season game in a long time for that organization and what happened. Well, denver. That's who sat on top of the Western Conference in.

But he's certainly not going to be moving up in the house anytime soon, and I know he got he caught some significant blowback on this. But I'm not I'm not going to criticize him for it. I think the house does the new leadership does the new blood in there. It's unfortunate that these three democratic leaders of the. House are all in their late seventy eight seventy nine seventy eight I believe ages. So. They're all basically and have been there a long time. And basically, you're going to be preserving the status quo, and how things have been operating as they have been down there for a long time. There's gotta be no shaking up of things. No big, no big shakeup in committees. No big shakeup in how they. Govern down there. They're going to be doing the same thing that they always have which is partisan partisan battles. Everything is going to be partisan. Every single thing. And. New policy is gonna make sure of that. And give troubles to Trump at every turn and Republicans are going to fight back. But they can't do anything. Now in the house in the in the Senate. Of course, we still have an unresolved Senate race, and that will be resolved tonight down in Mississippi where there's a runoff election in the Senate. Between a Republican and a democrat and whoever if if the Republican wins that race than. The day will hold a fifty three to forty seven edge in the Senate, which is which is a pretty decent pretty decent margin there six margin. But. I'm not. Obviously, you know, the democrat running has a chance that would be fifty to forty eight. If the democrat wins, even though it's Mississippi. I don't I don't I don't see. It's got to be very tough for a democrat to win in Mississippi. I'm trying to check the latest polls to see what they were. They're voting today on this now, but there. The basically Republicans are basically hoping to hold onto the seat. It would be huge upset if the Democrats did win. But. Mike Espy, but we'll see how it turns out. The reason they needed a runoff is because of the late voting in the late returns. You have they have this ridiculous. Rule in Mississippi where you have to win over fifty percent to be elected, which is crazy to me. It's like you win or you lose you shouldn't the fact that there are other candidates in the race is going to prevent you from getting to the fifty percent margin. So I don't see why you have to be elected with over fifty percent of the vote when you have multiple candidates running. That's not really realistic. So you're always gonna have a runoff and runoff is difference certainly much different situation. Trying to see the polls. I don't I don't have the polls. With me, obviously. Cindy, Hyde Smith who is a Republican. Senator. They're defending the seat against democrat. Mike Espy in this very red state. Hyde. Smith made the joke about a public hanging. And that's of course, sparks a lot of controversy in the in the last few weeks of the race. But they're Mississippi voters are voting right now, and it will determine whether Republicans hold a bigger edge in the Senate or a smaller for raven fifty to four years what they have. Now, I believe or fifty one forty. I'm not sure that right Christian. Don't they have a four voter three vote edge right now. I think. Yeah. This this would be forty eight for the Democrats if they get it. So it's gotta be fifty one forty seven at the moment. Okay. Fifty one forty seven. So. They would increase by one. But you know, Mike Espy, obviously, sorry sorry. Number one. It's fifty to forty seven. If the Democrats win it's fifty to forty eight if the Republicans win, it's fifty three forty seven. Okay. So it's fifty to forty seven okay. The Republicans will have gained at least one seat from the two years ago because they already fifty two up by two seats. But. Be interesting to see what the turnout is after they've already voted. I mean, I can't imagine going through this. Election again, can you? I mean, I mean having another election seems insane. To me this whole fifty percent rule. It's just a big another spending a lot of money having another election. Of course. I don't know why you need to win with fifty percent of the vote that you don't have to do it in presidential elections in the primaries. No, you just went like Donald Trump. But he having New Hampshire. Didn't it fifty percent of the vote to thirteen fourteen people running? Yeah. I mean, it's going to get fifty percent. But we'll take the state. Why Mississippi do even have four people running? I mean, are they just independence 'cause and they're getting that much of the vote? I guess if worn in deal ran here. But if there was an independent they weren't going to get a large chunk of the vote. Born was still gonna finish. With over fifty percent of the vote Hyde Smith one she won the initial. But but didn't get fifty percent. Yeah. It was worn deal and independent running. I would imagine Warren still would have got fifty plus percent of the vote. It's gonna be a tough, and it wouldn't take that much much of the vote here. I think it's going to be very tough for Democrats to win their the polling that I've seen shows sixty percent of voters in Mississippi approve of President Trump. So that's a tough highly unlikely. Yeah. That's that's an indication of where the state stands the Democrats to Scott seed, it's only gonna be for two years, but in Alabama said like Jeff Sessions seat because the guy that was running as the Republican was pretty much really out there. Joe right here. I had some like, yes. Some issues of molestation or whatever. So I don't know. I just know that if a democrat does win that means Alabama and Mississippi would both have a democratic Senator. I. The last time that happened. I don't know. I don't know because I know that was a big thing like every time ago democrat wing in Alabama was bad enough. Now, they wins Mississippi to yeah. Yeah. Know. That would be all hell breaking loose seventy eight. When it said say what you will about Pelosi, but she isn't stupid. That's true. I think she's a very skillful political negotiator. I'm not I'm not. Demeaning, her political skills or her intelligence at all. But..
