Fresh update on "fcc" discussed on Mut at Night
"Born goes from 53 against the Sixers to 34 against the Wizards, 32 against the Magic toe, only 16 points Against the sons of McHale, Bridges, Sons for no red hot We give the sun's a stock up, especially McHale bridges. All right. A lot of excitement in Buffalo, trying to win the FCC for the first time since 1995. No more Tom Brady inside that division, So they got a shot this year, too, not only with the agencies that I have a shot, they're considered the favorite. They brought over the fund digs in the off season. We'll see if Josh Allen could take that next step now and you're number three, and you have a very good defense. And today this white as booger, McFarland would say, is.
The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access
"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.
Fresh update on "fcc" discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory
"Radio station News, 93.1 KFBK went to attorney generals, including California's are demanding Facebook to doom or to fight Pete Speech. And disinformation. The letter sent to CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the C 00 called on them to better police if Social Media network they also want Facebook to provide stronger support for users who are victims of online intimidation and harassment. A group of bipartisan lawmakers is asking Governor Newsome to begin paying unemployment benefits as the state clears a backlog in the system. In a letter they asked to retroactively sort of fly claims in order to expedite the approval process of unemployment benefits. And implement a new callback system. The US Justice Department wants to block California's net neutrality law. The Justice Department asked a judge on Wednesday to block the loss of that California cannot enforce it in 2018. The state said it would not do so until the courts ruled on an FCC repealed case. The U. S Court of Appeals upheld the FCC is repeal late last year. Time Nikola Goddess..
Amazon vows to invest $10B in Kuiper satellites after getting FCC’s go-ahead
"Federal Communications Commission authorized Amazon's plans for its project Kuyper Satellite Constellation this calls for launching three thousand, two, hundred, thirty, six satellites to provide broadband coverage. The FCC approved the plan on the condition that Amazon does not unduly interfere with previously authorized satellite ventures with satellites orbiting within three hundred, fifty, five days of completing their assigned mission. The plan approved by the FCC calls for Amazon to launch half it set alight by mid twenty, twenty, six and the rest by mid twenty
Tech's four biggest companies are going on trial
"Important tech hearings up on Capitol Hill, where the CEOs the four largest tech companies are due to appear before Ah House Judiciary subcommittee on Anna trusted to answer questions about whether they have become and a competitive and won't return. Now to Emily Chang. She is anchor of Bloomberg Tech. We were rudely interrupted before I'm delighted you could be back with us, Emily So let's talk about this. We're talking about the four cos they're all big. They're all tech, but they're actually quite different company. One from the other. How can there be a through line from this investigation on these four different companies? Absolutely, And that's a very good point, David, Each of these CEOs of each of these four companies could have their own multi day hearing. The issues are very different with Facebook. It's misinformation and advertising with Google is advertising and search, which, with Apple, it is The APP store with Amazon. It is how these companies treat third party sellers. Jeff Bezos is somebody that we're really going to be watching here, the CEO of Amazon and also the richest person in the world because he's never testified before Congress before, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say in his prepared remarks, which were also a little bit different. From the rest. He talked about how his parents invested in Amazon in the early days. A typical and true American success story. He's also the owner of The Washington Post says that that could bring out a little more idolatry from the lawmakers. We don't know, but it's definitely going to be interesting to see how these lawmakers throughout their questions because they could basically ask anyone Anything at any time. So there's a chance that this could be all over the map, especially given that this is a virtual hearing. You're gonna have some of the lawmakers in the room. The hearing has been delayed because they're basically cleaning up from the last hearing. You've got staffers inside now washing it down. But all of the CEOs will be calling in virtually So your comments suggest there is another person not in the room who may be quite important that is Donald J. Trump the president, United States He's not been shy in his criticism of some of these tech companies at all. What is the potential influence of the president here? Absolutely. And David we actually just in the last half hour, So got another tweet from the president focused on Big tech, the president tweeting. If Congress doesn't bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with executive orders in Washington. It has been all talk and no action for years and the people of our country are sick. And tired of it. Of course, the president tweets themselves have been the subject of much controversy, especially how Facebook in particular has handled his tweets. The one about looters and shooters threatening violence on the American people threatening violence on protesters in Washington, D. C. Facebook has made the decision to let those posts stand unflagging not behind. A warning of any kind, and that has kicked off. Ah lot of controversy. Facebook is in the middle of an ad boycott. Right now, you've got massive advertisers who have pulled their advertising from Facebook for the month of July and some for the foreseeable future. So you can expect Facebook to be the subject and Mark Zuckerberg in particular, probably of the most iron from these lawmakers. Lots of concern. About anti conservative bias on the right and also concerns from Democrats as well. You've seen Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, also taking aim at Facebook, and in fact, President Trump has already used his executive powers to sign an executive order asking The FCC to take a look at old laws that give companies like Facebook and Google and Twitter protection from liability over the content that those users users post so we could expect that to be a really hot button issue today. Well, it's a fascinating point. This is Washington where the rules as we both know are different, but this is the antitrust subcommittee, the House Judiciary Committee. Theoretically, they're supposed to do with competition issues. Not the substance of speech. And yet I wonder whether it would be a fair amount of questions that have nothing to do with that. I trust her competition at all it has to do with political bias. Absolutely. And look, I've talked to all of the company's going into this. They're expecting questions to be all over the map. It is not all going to fall under the antitrust umbrella, and we know that at some of these lawmakers, we're gonna have sort of personal bones to pick with these companies whether or not one of their posts personally was flagged. Or not, And it's been interesting hearing from the critics as well. You've got CEOs of other big tech companies like the CEO of Spotify, the CEO of Epic games and maker of Fortnight. I've spoken to these folks in the last couple of weeks in the last couple of months, and they've been speaking out about thes companies saying that Apple, for example. Is American, Apple and Google are a duopoly. You've heard a lot of criticism going into this about how these companies run their businesses, and that's what these lawmakers have been hearing now on. The other side of these four companies have massive lobbying operations that they've turned over. One source told me voluminous amounts of documents, millions and millions of pages. Stating their case stating their side to make sure that these lawmakers are informed and we should hope that these lawmakers are going into this with with some level of the right information you know in the past. When Mark Zuckerberg, for example, testified before Congress for the first time, some lawmakers didn't understand how Facebook's business model actually worked. So we'll be watching to see whether or not these lawmakers actually understand the businesses and the points That they want to make. It was a famous exchange. How do you make your money If you don't charge for, he said, Well, we sell advertising Senator. That was quite an exchange. Emily. Thank you so very much Want to treat you have you with us? That's Bloomberg technology anchor Emily Chang, and we're going to bring you the hearing when it finally gets underway on Capitol Hill. Meanwhile,
Broadband for All?
"I have two guests joining us I I want to say welcome to agree to disagree to G. G soon TJ year distinguished fellow at Georgetown. Law and you are recognized as one of the nation's foremost advocates for open and affordable Internet, welcome to intelligence squared. Thanks, John and your opponent in the conversation. It's different from saying opponent in a debate, but the opposing view in the conversation is brought to us by Christopher Christopher welcome to intelligence squared, and to agree to disagree your professor at Penn Law, and among the leading authorities on law and technology today. Great to have you with us. Thank you for having me. So I WANNA start by putting before the two of you, a series of very short questions and all I want to hear from you is whether you agree with the statement says or whether you disagree and I'm going to start. Statement number one for millions of Americans pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet to substitute for or enhance variety of normally face to face activities such as getting an education being seen by a doctor going to the bank shopping for basic needs again. The pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet for those things. Do you agree or disagree with that Statement Agree Chris Totally agree? Second Statement, the thirty three million Americans who lack broadband service in their own homes are disadvantaged by that fact, G G I don't agree with the number, but I agree with the statement. Correct me on the member. So thirty, three million, a third of American households don't have Internet access. The FCC's numbers, which are actually less than thirty three million. They're closer to eighteen million grossly under understate the number of Americans. Who Don't have access to the broadband internet? A thirty three million is too little as well. I testified in front of Congress that it's closer to one hundred, forty, one million okay Microsoft estimates that is closer to one, hundred, sixty, two million all right so somewhere between thirty three million in one hundred sixty two million Americans lack of broadband service in their own homes. Are disadvantaged by that fact. Do you agree or disagree great? Chris without disputing the numbers at this point are those without broadband in their homes disadvantaged by that fact, absolutely the third question, the user experience on faster broadband connection is preferable to the experience on a slower connection. Kiji, agree a hundred percent. Chris wanted to know more about what you mean faster and slower the generally. Yes, it's always better to be faster. There is diminishing returns. We're GONNA talk about gigabit speeds at some point I presume, and basically there's a point where you just don't need any more speed, but within a certain range absolutely okay. The fourth question broadband service should be seen as a right underlaw gee-gee. I think it's essential a writer very very legalistic term I think every American should have Internet access whether it's a right like the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It's hard for me to agree with that statement depending on what you mean by right. If, you're asking me if everybody should have it whether it's an essential service, I agree one hundred percent. Asking me it's. Is it a right under the bill of rights? I would disagree. Chris I think Z. said a perfectly. It's an important service, but I don't think for him. Getting rights, discourse helps okay. It's very interesting. Point is that you've agreed fundamentally basically on all four questions so far are fifth question and our final question, and that's the one that we're going to use our motivating question for the beginning of the conversation at least Congress should guarantee broadband access for all gee-gee agree. Chris I think that the question is how. I tend to generally agree, but for example states have been very active in the space I want to credit the things that they're doing this room through a lot of different actors, but does Congress have very constructive role in Congress doing more? Yes, but guarantee is too strong a word. Would you say I think so? You know there's a lot of the central services that we have and the idea of a guarantee means that if I were choose to move on top of a mountain. Very far away from everything else. I'm entitled to ask the Government to provide service, no matter what the cost at certain levels and With a number of alternatives, there's examples where we have to make trade offs, and by saying the government is obligated to provide every citizen to guarantee every citizen access to internet speeds comparable what you get cities, no matter where they choose to live. Is a choice we can make in society. It's just a very expensive one
The US government is considering a TikTok ban
"TIKTOK has a history in Congress now. Josh Holly has basically been the main guy out to get to talk, but okay, so for the past year year and a half Josh Holly has had some hearings. He's invited to talk to testify, and then he's done these like wrestling style like hyper wheels on twitter, where he just like shows like an empty tick tock chair and he's like. Where are they and it's like we're guitar music album. Is Our personal information being made less secure by big tech, because of their partnerships with some of these questionable receive. At least. This has happened. We've been waiting all this kind of happened when Mike pompeo like randomly one night on Fox, news. It's like yeah. We're thinking about banning TIKTOK. And that's basically all he said, and then, of course, everyone's like what is happening, so the government can't really do a want to ban tiktok addy. Our colleague here on the policy dusted a wonderful story talking about all the ways that they could kind of get around. Banning them, but the one thing the government can do is banned other people in government from using. On their devices so. This week the House of A Josh Holly Bill that would ban federal employees from using Tiktok on their devices, and then just yesterday earlier this week. It made it through the Senate committee, so all it needs now is vote on the Senate floor to be approved signature and Tiktok. His banned from Federal Devices Military Tiktok is not a small community. No, it's huge. It's huge. It's huge I watch a lot of fighter jets land on aircraft carriers. Somebody took a very bad dad. TIKTOK I'll go. Is Very different from mine, so federal employees banned from using it. Is there any further motion like? Their moves right. You could like you can say it's a Chinese company. We don't want them like. We did it to Weiwei right, but we. We basically banned companies from buying equipment. How would you? How would you do that with Tiktok? We have this problem all the time. With like what regulator deals with tech, no one has any idea or they want a piece of it, and then they fight over it, and it's a nightmare, so that's part of the problem. We don't have in federal agency that really organizes around Blake Tech Regulation at all, so it's not like you can just go knocking on the. The door. It'd be like excuse me. Chairman Simon's please ban. Tiktok you can't do that so in the same way that the FCC jeep pie can be like no money goes to while away and then here's some money to dig it up and get it out of your system like we don't have the infrastructure for that and I think that's primarily the biggest problem here I mean. There's a couple of things that you could do with like foreign, Investment Sifi's. Sifi's stuff. It's all incredibly Wonky, but it's an incredibly difficult, if not impossible to just ban an APP, and that would have to do with like talking to apple and Google and APP stores and having you know what I mean having to com- completely direct what how they operate in some way. We just got done with a huge discussion about how apple has monopoly on after being on the iphone Google doesn't on Android, but they might may as well for. For most intensive purposes, especially here in the US, so if they can strong-arm apple and Google just pulling them off the APP store. That like it's pretty close I mean they're like Donald. Trump is like one iphone tariffs right away right? I mean but like I. Don't know if anyone is gonNA. Pull it off now, Casey. One thing that strikes me is even on my extremely lame Dad Tiktok I see so many creator saying is getting banned following instagram. It's a trend all over the place, and obviously trump and sort of the republican side of the the world are like Tiktok Chinese. We hate it. trumpet is I, think particularly pissed because of the rally narrative run TIKTOK that's Russell singles last week. Also delivers a lot of information to people in young voters in particular in Opaque Algorithm feed like that. It feels like yours zone has bubbled up beyond just a bunch of noise for you. Yeah, I mean like this is a Ben Thompson. Point which is that China has been in an information war with the United States for twenty years, and Americans have just pretended. It doesn't exist right like the point makes over, and over again is China started this fight? A social networks are not allowed to operate in China, and so the fact that. Albert Mickley based feed that is totally opaque. That is operating insider. Reporters should raise at least some national security concerns right like the kind of. Threat you worry about. Is You know what if the Communist Party decides that? It just wants to push a lot of pro-trump propaganda in the run-up to the election. You know it just because it would. It would so some chaos, and it would benefit them regardless of how likely you think that is to happen. The fact is that it could happen and. Should the the country have some sort of response to that? How should think about that? And you can take different views on it but I do think the thinking about what Tiktok is and how it could be used has been unsophisticated because as with every social product when it first got started. We all look at it and we think this is fun. This is a toy. Nothing bad could ever come from teenagers doing dances. And fast forward to the two thousand sixteen election has no one ever watched footloose I mean come on yeah. Look what happened. What state will allow dancing in that town? Lot of people think happy story I. Don't think that that is a movie about how town was ruined through dancing.
T-Mobile CEO on fighting the scourge of robocalls
"Mobile's event was all about fighting scan and robocalls. We've got CEO Mike Seaver to talk about it. Rod Chang, and this is your daily charge. Carrier, events are generally when you attack. The big annoyances are wireless service. So what are you addressing with today's news? We call them pain points and we've done this sixteen times before. Can you believe that and we're taking on today? One of the biggest pain points ever in this industry, which is Robo calls and scams, an unwanted calls and I'll tell you what this this is huge. This is the number one complaint to the FCC Can you believe about eleven? percent of calls on our traffic were blocked by our technology just last week. I mean this massive fifty. Eight Billion Robo calls were placed last year in two thousand nineteen. That's eighteen hundred. A second and people are being robbed. robbed the these are crimes. They're being talked out of their money. Ten billion dollars estimated lost last year from this and it's getting worse. I mean this is just awful, but this is the way criminals are. They're preying on people during this pandemic because we've got fears, people are losing jobs. They're looking for jobs. They're interested in their stimulus checks and other things and criminals are preying on all that, and so it's gone up and up and up through the pandemic, and it just has to stop, so we're launching this major initiative today that we hope like the rest of our own carrier moves in the past, the rest of the industry follow suit, and we can really make progress against. Essentially these criminal elements that want to steal from tens of millions of people, and so let's let's dive into it Scam Shield. What is it? What? What are some of these other programs that you are offering today? Well, it's a comprehensive left to right solution. Because one of the things we've learned is that it's this issue is too big and too complicated to solve with any one thing. At the centerpiece of it is scam, idea and scam block our breakthrough technologies that are network driven. Hey, I driven to identify calls and block them, and we're making them better already just in the last three years. We've blocked. We've blocked or identified a scam, likely twenty five billion calls, and so we've got a head start on this, but the thing about it is. This has gotta be. Be Thrust into the public consciousness and people need to start participating in order for us to take it to the next level. You ever get those calls those scams, and then you go into your phone and you block them on your phone. The truth is that doesn't do much good now with the Scam Shield. You'll be able to go into our APP and with one touch block. Block that call or essentially report it to us, because it's not just the ten digits they called with. Because as you know, they randomized those they call with new numbers every time that tells us to investigate the source of that call, and so with the feedback loop from tens of millions of customers using scam shield, our AI driven network technologies will get better and better and better. Better at identifying and blocking these calls for you and already we're thirty percent better than anybody else in the industry. So this is just taking it all to the next level, so let me let me stop you there just just to get some clarification because I know some of the stuff the other carries off horizon. You know. Todd touted the fact that they've stopped six billion calls. Fundamentally you all use a similar system that's one that's mandated by the FCC to be rolled out by the end of next year or sometime next year. So what is different about this? In what what? What is new exactly in terms of some of these I know some of these services like the caller ID feature had been offered in the past. So what is new? What is different from the rest of the industry? Well, let's first talk about scam. ID and scan block. What's different is that ours is network based, and it's for everyone on the network literally. Literally speaking, and so it doesn't rely on a certain rate plan or or APP or having something installed or paying for a feature, which is exactly what verizon offers which is seven dollars and ninety nine cents. A month seven nine hundred dollars a year just about in order on their most popular plans in order to get the best levels of protection. Protection which aren't as as much as we're offering today for free, and and honestly as an industry. We need to do better than that. We you know this is. This is an issue that the carriers are helping to bring to customers. I mean their own networks are bringing you these scams and yet they're profiting from technology. That might be proposed to stop their. Their own technology for bringing you these scams that's crazy and so part of what we do with on carrier moves as we call out industry practices, sometimes practices that we've participated in the past and said look, this is a pain point, and it's gotTa Stop So these technologies at T. mobile or not just better because they're network based and don't rely on Hap. But they're free, and we're not going to charge them. Including as you mentioned caller ID, which is now free, t mobile. And as you mentioned being made better, that industry standard technology talked about stir shaken is basically a pool database of being able to see not only the name of a caller which is important if you have caller ID, which is free now, but that it's a verified mobile user and not a call center, or a robot calling you, and that's really important information for you in order to know, you can safely answer the phone. It
988 to become the new 911 for suicide prevention
"The FCC has given the green light to a new easy to remember three digit national suicide hotline number. More from CBS's news correspondent Steve Futterman. We all know you call 911 for an emergency. Now the FCC has approved a special three digit number that those contemplating suicide can call There is already a national suicide hotline with the traditional 10 digit number. The three digit number 988 will make it easier. Aggie pious, the FCC chairman, It's a game changer. When it goes into effect in 2022. You will instantly be connected with a trained counselor. When you call
Microsoft pushes fix for two vulnerabilities in the Windows Codecs Library
"US cert posted last a Tuesday on June thirtieth. Microsoft has released information regarding vulnerabilities and they're oddly low numbered so apparently Microsoft is known of them for a while there twenty, twenty, fourteen, twenty, five and fourteen, fifty seven, the CV designations in Microsoft, Windows Codex Library. they said this contains updates that are rated as critical. Remote attackers leveraging these vulnerabilities may be able to execute arbitrary code for more information. The vulnerabilities please refer to the information provided by Microsoft and of course it's like Oh. What's this because again? This was this is out of cycle this. This is the end of the end of June. They didn't even feel they could wait. A couple of weeks until July's updates apparently so. Both of the advisories on Microsoft's site have the same title Microsoft Windows Codex Library Remote Code Execution. Vulnerability that's for for fourteen, twenty, five, fourteen, fifty, seven, and the disclosures are almost identical. But of course at this point, our listeners are low longer surprised to learn of a fatal flaw in a media Kodak as we know Codex. Are Complex interpreters. Of a compressing encoders Meta data. it's truly difficult to make a Kodak both screamingly fast as they need to be, and also careful at the same time, being super careful means checking everything and checking everything takes precious time when a Kodak is by its nature, often racing the clock. So, what made these? Stand out aside from the fact that they were once again patches for an out of cycle, critical, remote code. Execution Vulnerability and the second one is an information disclosure. Was the fact that Microsoft indicated that the updates would not. Be available through windows update north through windows update catalog. No these updates would be provided through. The Microsoft store. And as well as like what? Users are instructed to click on the little white shopping bag. On the windows, ten task bar and I'll note that none of my windows. Ten task bars have little white shopping bags. But that's another story. Then you select more downloads updates and then get updates. In their disclosure. Microsoft wrote a remote code execution. Vulnerability exists in the way that Microsoft Windows. Library handles objects in memory. Okay, no surprise there. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could execute Arbor Schroeder. Code Right? And the other one a slight variation, same boilerplate, an attack who successfully exploited the second vulnerability could obtain information to further compromise the user system. And in either case they say the exploitation of the vulnerability requires a program process a specially crafted image file right so it's the evil image, which is what you'd expect a Kodak to Barf on. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Microsoft Windows Codex Library handles objects in memory. Then, they wrote. Affected users will be automatically updated box Microsoft store. And according to Microsoft's users who want to receive the update immediately can check for updates with the Microsoft store APP. That's the clicking on the little white. Bag that I talked about before. And I was thinking about this. I suppose it makes sense for store APPs and extensions that are sourced by the store. Even when they are provided by Microsoft to be updated through the channel that the user. Used for their original delivery, and that's especially the case for third party. APPs being updated mean. Microsoft would not want to be hosting updates. Of Third Party APPS through their own operating system and APP update channels to the windows update and the update catalog. So the store it is. Both updates were privately reported and are not known to be used in the wild, so it's not clear to me why the emergency but the fact that it was on the thirtieth, which was a Tuesday as I right? Yeah, it was a Tuesday. maybe that was a deliberate like store patch Tuesday new thing that is going to be happening. The problems exist in. Excuse me. The H., E. V. C. video extensions and they're not free, surprisingly ninety nine cents if you want that from the Microsoft store. Maybe a You'll you'll get them. As part of an of another package provided there, there's like actually two different instances of H. E. C. on the store once for ninety nine cents and one says it's provided by other software. The FCC extension apparently not very popular read only two and a half out of five stars and Microsoft's description says play high efficiency Video Kodak. That's what HIV stands for. In any video, APP, on your windows, ten device, these extensions they say are designed to take advantage of hardware capabilities on some newer devices, including those with these Intel seventh generation, core, processor, and newer GPU to support four K and ultra HD content. They said for devices that don't have hardware support for H. E. V. C. so a software Kodak to enhance what you have on your system. and. This was sort of a new designation for me. And actually. We've already gone to the to the Kodak beyond this, but wikipedia explains the HEC. This high efficiency video coding is also known as H. Dot, two, six, five, and also MPC age part two video compression standard designed as part of the M Peg h project as a successor to the widely used ABC. which is what everybody is now using that's H. Dot, two six four, which is MP for ten, so and and wikipedia finished in comparison to ABC H.. E. V. C. offers from twenty five to fifty percent, better data compression, the same level of video quality, giving it substantially improved the equality at the same bit rate. Okay so. if you're curious to know, and it turns out, you may need to be curious whether your system or any system might have the H.. Video! Extensions installed. And, if so, which version you, there is a power. Shell Command the which will tell you, so you'd open power shell. Probably do it with Admin because why not and then it's I, have I have the command in the show notes if you're interested, but it's get high hyphen APP x Package Space Dash Name Space Microsoft Dot H.. E. V. C. video extension. When I entered that into my win ten machine. I got nothing. It was just blank in return, but the repaired versions of the HVAC extensions one point zero point. Three one, eight, two, two dot, zero or three, one, eight, two three dot zero. and so since I don't have a my power shell just exited returning nothing. Some commentators have observed that this new. Store Windows store channel for releasing critical updates outside of the normal window security update distribution channels. Though I noted I could see why it happened. It made sense is understandable, can cause trouble in enterprise settings where certain windows features and windows store. Probably. I would imagine the store more than anything else may have been deliberately disabled by enterprise policies, and for such companies who have purposely disabled, the Microsoft store and the Microsoft store automatic up up. Up Updates. Those vulnerable computers will not receive fixes without the removal of that policy and in Fact Computer World's Industry Fixture Woody Leonard. Over in his ask, woody column was far less patient with this and much less understanding that I was about. Like I could understand why that was the windows store. One of the replies to his posting noted that this optional hec Kodak exists by default in Windows clients. Editions since eighteen o nine, except the N. and the lts's editions I do have the Lt Tse. The Long Term Servicing Channel so that explains why my power shall query came a blank. But assuming that's the case. it would be probable then that any normal windows eight, hundred, zero, nine, nine, hundred, zero, three, nine, hundred, Ninety, nine and twenty, four would have the vulnerable Kodak installed. Yet presumably be unable to get it updated if the user or an enterprise had determined that they had no interest in the windows store, and had consequently removed and or disabled, it It's exactly the same as if we could uninstall windows update, which, of course we can't because we need. We need windows updates so. It'll be interesting to see if like what happens with this Woody wound up his post by writing quote. The distribution method is riddled with all sorts of obvious holes. He said I mean anybody with any sort of updating. Experience should have been able to compile a list of half a dozen ways that this could go wrong. And he finished yet another unholy mess, and actually he also he used some of the content in his kgab computer world. Call him where he just really raked windows Microsoft for the debacle of the June windows update with all the printer issue. Basically all the things we've talked about and touched on, but ooh being much less. Forgiving, either even than I am

Sexual abuse allegations surface in fighting game community
"Once again, not the happiest of weeks when it comes to sports, I'm just. I'm going to be real with the listeners here new age. Not The happiest of weeks we had an ups and downs right like after it. I say weeks. It feels like it's been weeks since our last episode with all the news that broke and. A couple of days. We've basically seen whole gaming community after we did A. Lovely Documentary Review. I felt like on one of the best documentaries I've seen right the smash brothers a lot of fun to do that in watch it in and then to see all of this as like well. That community just killed itself off essentially now. with on I'm sure with you know. Obviously. News is changing every single day. It does look like it's more of the ultimate side. It seems like it's more of the new school. Kids and not so much the crowd, so maybe we'll give him that. Maybe that's just me with my Malay glasses on like i. just want those guys to be good I. Don't want them to be pedophile and shit like that, but that's what gets me right. Is We finish the show? Last episode. I mean it was more so just kind of still talking about sexual assaults around like counter strike in things like that, and like we said like what do we say like with doc? Right is look sexual assault or sexual assault. You never want to see it. You never do, but if in this world there's going to be bad thing so if you have to pick one like. Make it to where it's? And it's just you know whatever I don't WanNa. See Pet of I. DON'T WANNA. See Pedophile. That's where I get emotional. It's where I'll get upset and it's not really fun to talk about and Lo and behold the FCC was like. Hold my controller. Watch this and it's like you. You saw one story news and you're like. shed. That's bad, and then like another one came after you're like. ooh, that's actually worse like I don't understand like. We've gone from words to action all of a sudden. Words are bad enough. And that it wasn't even like you saw one thing, and like okay, and then it was like everyone would tweet like. Oh well, this person knew about it. That person knew about like everyone in the smash scene, and the fighting game seemed kind of loosely knew all of this was going on the whole time. But regard for whatever reason ever said anything or never felt like they were in the position to, or they felt like it should have been handled behind closed doors which I'll say this because I've seen some people tweet out about it Richard Lewis. This is like he's loving. This in the sense of he can finally take shots back at the FCC for how they treated him with illeg, which was awful like. We've talked about on the show. Before the way, the FCC response to outsiders, coming in is like the worst I mean hell. We've even seen it trying to get into some of these fighting game events where they're like. No like you guys aren't exclusively talking fighting each sport, so we can't have you in the FTC event, look. Bad about Yvo. Part of that crowd. Reason no reason yeah, so there's there's that, and this is not though in my opinion, even though this episode is pretty much going to solely be focusing on the FTC, I don't think this is an FDIC issue. I don't think it's a smash. Brothers community issue. I just think this is an issue like I. Think there's something that got out of hand in a group of people it's. The numbers are a little bit more staggering, obviously, upwards of fifty people involved and counting right. Yeah, like I mean it feels like it could potentially be the start and I feel like more stories and. victims will come forward, but. It's a little bit. It feels a little bit more prominent to me. In the in the community of FDIC at the moment compared to others like it's been spread out everywhere else you know like it comes to streamers, but streamers are not. Like their their own, also their own community, right big name streamers, so I guess you could say that that community is also flawed in my eyes, but that's not. As surprising just based on like the personalities and all that kind of take place in Edgy, sees kinda known to be like more like socially awkward in. We've set it on the show like I don't think you have to beat around the bush. especially. This time I feel like. If you got your shots, shoot them right. The FCC is weird. And before that was always kind of I said that as a compliment right like almost like. Hey, take it as a compliment, you guys. Are Weird. You really love your anime. You like your firs-. Your neck owes whatever your I get it. I get it put. It's your thing and whatever right? You guys are happy with it. You're weird, but it's okay. That's who they are. Exactly that's that's who they were. They were a different side of e sports. And now it's kind of like. Oh! No now it's weird. It's like the tone on that Tad different with me now where it's like. Okay I. You know as creepy it's. Weird alike it's a full of a bunch of creeps again. It's not everybody so it's not a blanket statement that we're talking about. Here is just the fact that there's so many players accused so many big name players accused. You saw people like in the. Narrow situation in particular like you saw people like. Telling them to do it, you know that the conversation that was leaked the person at blurred out the name, but they were able to figure out who was drawing a blank on that now, but they were like instigating them in like. Saying like yeah, this is like this is how it is like. This is okay. You know in, so you know. A lot of people knew about what was going on behind the scenes. Hell like these events are significantly smaller. These people are always together when they're going to them. Some of these events are like home style events. Still you know and so It just. Leaves a really bad taste in your mouth, because of not only the the high volume of people. It's the people that are involved. They're high profile individuals in I. Think the fact that it seems like the lot of the community knew it was happening. In worked trying to stop it or weren't helping out,
Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week
"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.
EVO 2020 was cancelled
"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.
FCCs Ajit Pai is tackling suicide prevention with a 988 hotline
"Me. Senior reporter and regulatory expert Maggie Ridden. Thanks, thank you for joining me. Thanks for having me so tell me about the SEC's nine eight eight initiative, so the FCC is GonNa Vote next month on. Some rules to establish nine eight eight as the number that you call if you wanNA reach the suicide, prevention, hotline, or lifeline, and right now it's a fool. One eight hundred number. The thinking is that if it's a shorter nine eight eight number that will be something that sticks in people's minds, and they'll know to call that, and it will be easier to reach, and you actually had a chance to talk to SEC. Chairman Ajit Pie about this I mean what is what is he hoping to accomplish here in like the House he personally invested in this 'cause well, he is very passionate about this issue and says. You know that this is very personal for him that. He feels you know a connection to this issue and. As I think most of the commissioners do. They, all are in support of this, and he really hopes that by using nine eight eight. It will again really stick in people's minds. It's obviously a professional obligation of the se for me, but it's also a personal 'cause for me. I think a suicide, prevention and mental health affected so many people in our daily lives, and especially when it comes to suicide alone so I mentioned, the rate is now coaching levels. We haven't seen since world. War. Two and bumble oscillations are especially hard hit A. we've seen for example veterans that some twenty veterans every day die by suicide. LGBTQ, you are also at Gress they. They contemplate suicide a much higher rates some one point. Eight million LGBTQ used think about suicide every year for African American. Teens report recently came out showing that self reported suicide attempts among black heeds increased by seventy three percent between nineteen, ninety-one and twenty seventeen, and a lot of these statistics come afford current pandemic, when of course so staying at home in other types of protocols, if greed sense of isolation for those who may be struggling, and so to me at least the ability to connect those who need help more easily. Those who can provide it is absolutely critical issues, not stranger to me and. while. It's difficult to talk about what I will say that I think about it every day. Antibiotics affected those who had loved the end. I don't want anyone to have to go through that and Yeah, and so he hopes that nine eight eight becomes a a similar thing for people who are in a mental health crisis that right like everybody teaches their kids and we learned his kids that. When you're in an emergency, you cow nine one one. People know that it's just second nature. You know. They don't really have to think about it much that they can just pick up the phone if they need help and reach out to get that help and. How how big of a problem is suicide in America, it's it's a growing problem and it in a serious one The the Centers for Disease Control have done a study that said they've looked at data and suicide rates have been on the rise for the last two decades so it's a real problem. There are a lot of people in our country. Country who are experiencing a lot of troubles and you know in the FCC wants to do something about it. Right imagined the coronavirus and our lockdown situation has just made things worse. l., absolutely, in fact, you know the dispatchers. The counselors who feel these calls are seeing spikes in calls to them since the pandemic and I think it it really. It speaks to the fact that people are isolated. They're at home. people are losing their jobs. We have a lot of civil unrest and the black lives matter stuff the happening and we're seeing all these images on our. TV's and I think it's really taking a toll on. People yeah I know that I regularly sit downs on Saturday mornings or on the weekends and run through my facebook. Feed my news. Feed ends. It's pretty depressing so that the news that's out there right so I get it and I can see why that would be a bigger problem in current environment. I'm curious if there are any folks who are opposed to this as odd as that sounds, I mean I know. The FCC is typically divided by party lines right? Usually Democrats vote one way Republicans voted. Another neutrality is a great example of this kind of. Divided issue is there is everyone basically on board for this or are there folks who have? Concerns or issues with this proposal you know everybody is on board with this initiative and you know I think that really speaks to. The fact that this is an issue that that crosses party lines right whether you're a republican or Democrat I think everybody. Knows people in their lives who have struggled or they may be struggling themselves in so I think this is. This is really an issue that that touches everyone, but what is the next step of this? Because I know right now? It's a proposal but hauer. When does ninety eight become a reality? So the FCC? They've been working on this issue for you know for several months now, and so now they're at the point in their process where they're coming up with some final rules, and they'll be voting on this at the July, sixteenth meeting and. Now, it won't go into effect on July. Sixteenth Twenty, twenty. this is you know they're voting on the rules and establishing what needs to happen and they're giving the carriers two years to to comply with this and Chairman Pie said he realizes that's not soon enough really for for many people, but he wanted to make sure that the number was ready across the country, and that everything was in place so that there was no confusion that you know when it's ready, it's ready. It's GonNa. Launch everywhere.
Will the Best Atypical Stand Up?
"We have four Atypical Working Bipolar Depression Corinne Rey lar- larizza Don the Tuta Olonga. WALKS TEEN COMBINATION SYMBIOTIC CER- will call it. Oh, FCC, an top Ian Circle. Among them only Oh, FCC is supposed to be used with an antidepressant. That's the only way they gotta landscaping to work in the clinical trials, the other three work on their own for bipolar depression. And, what about the rest of the class? If you're thinking that the other atypical is probably work because these four do your betting on hope two of them era peppers, all and the president were tested in bipolar depression and failed. The others are untested. If we have to rest our hope on one, maybe it's a seraphine staffers. Osama. Pain has never been studied for acute bipolar depression, but it does have good evidence to prevent depressive episodes in bipolar disorder while the other eight typicals outside of the. FDA approved for that I. Just mentioned, do not. So that foot works, but how well do they work Leslie? Trauma and colleagues looked into that question with the likelihood to be helped or harm ratio, which tells us which Med has the best ratio of COSC- and tolerability. It's based on the more familiar number needed to treat the number needed to harm. Here's what they found Larussa. Don La. Tuta rose to the top in nearly every category. The, categories were based on different side effects. When we're talking about ethics, we were talking about one thing treating depression, but side effects are many, so they measured the likelihood to be helped or harm in several categories of side effects, weight gain, extra parameters, symptoms, fatigue, academia, and nausea as well as dropout dude at any adverse effect, which might be the most important of the bunch. I should note here that the study was sponsored by Sylvian, the maker of Larizza Don, but I have reviewed the data in other less biased sources and agree with the general consensus. They're Larizza Don is one of the better tolerated and psychotics, and with the number needed to treat of five. It stands comfortably alongside OFC and Qu Taya Pain. Those two are high on C., but they're lower on tolerability. Zipping Fox teen combination was actually a close second to Loretta Don in most categories except weight gain. Quantify opinion on the other hand sank to the bottom and most of the categories, although Kotite, typing ranks for both short and long term efficacy in bipolar depression and mania. It's also the typical that patients are most likely to quit in the short term and it side effects like fatigue and hypertension or often the reason. What about the newest on the block curric- present very lar- it's basically the less effective cousin Laura Zone, the to have never gone head to head, but careens number needed to treat indicate. It's about half as effective as Laura Zone. It does have two advantages. However, it works in Mania, which Larizza Don is not been tested in, and it's among the most tolerable of the atypical anti psychotics. Laura Zone as I said does not have any studies in mania, but it did work for mixed states and a new poster presentation, also sponsored by the industry brought some reassurance to those of us who worry that it may make mania worse like so many other anti-depressant therapies do. They re analyze Larizza domes main clinical trials again. None of these were done in mania, but they looked at manic symptoms and found that they did tend to improve with Larizza don and did not get worse.
Tide Accused of Inflating Number of Kids Rolling in Mud Puddles
"Tied may be in some hot water today and I'm not talking about the kind your washing machine. According to the FCC, the popular detergent brand has spent decades knowingly over inflating the number of Americans, whose children roll around in mud puddles before returning inside the house.

Media, power, and political communication
"Let's talk about the media yeah the media is a powerful Trojan horse seven mereka if it's not a and I mean they have attacked president trump relentlessly yeah and the problem we have is we have fox okay yeah now fox is okay but Rupert Murdoch is ninety years old right and his two sons are liberals okay we have newsmax rage has been growing and that's a good thing yeah we have one America right which is a good thing but these are national programs they don't get into Vince's crab house they don't get in the fells point being close they don't get into those things go and they don't get into helping our people who need help to fight against the beast and as you pointed out the Baltimore sun doesn't report on any of these issues involving her son is one of them yeah right exactly the Baltimore sun is part of the super shadow government yeah they protect them yeah people say that the media has fallen in the tank for the left they fell in the tank for the Obama no the media never found the check for anybody the media are leaders in this offensive they are legally are part of the natural America they were and and they were targeted specifically for that purpose because of the vast influence they have they were targeted for subversion and infiltration by the Soviet Union in the nineteen thirties and we could go on for hours about how that happened and who infiltrated but just for example one person remember Edward R. Murrow of CBS Edward R. Murrow is one of the people primarily responsible for bringing communist it's two Columbia teachers college to begin inserting all of these destructive America narratives into our universities he was responsible for bringing those people over and he worked with a guy named Laurence Duggan whose son was an actual Soviet agent and he was friends with his son and he became a news anchor for CBS that's just one example there are many many trusted a man in America yeah right right he he gave the Vietnam War at eight a story that was a hundred and eighty degrees from what the truth was riled tell your doctor about with Walter Cronkite yeah that young people don't know who has what we member we only had three major networks in this country now I can tell you let me say some about yeah because the networks are required by FCC regulation as part of their contract to provide unbiased news nobody has ever called him that if I were in a position to do so I would pull their FCC licenses tomorrow and tell them that they better straighten out their newsrooms and start reporting what's going on because they should be challenged in the courts right absolutely be challenged because they have been really but they have such power and such influence and Americans have to get a constitutional public there operates through elections has to be given the facts at what's happened instead is they've been given the left narrative for sixty eighty years in World War two The New York Times was engaged in treason it was exposing things mark Levin's book yeah I mean it's just stunning it's stunning when CNN first started Ted Turner used to go on a show and he would bring some five Soviet KGB agents on the show with him had a first among them was Georgy Arbatov who is the head of member for US and Canada old KGB agent they would talk down president Reagan they would just sit there and terror attacks president right that was C.

Google kicked ZeroHedge off its ad platform, put The Federalist on notice for racist protest content
"There's these proposals in sort of. In a bubble without the outside context, you'd say okay. We can evaluate that proposal. It's reasonable, here's. What's good. Here's this bad. They want them to moderate more or less, but they don't exist in context vacuum, they exist in the horrifying twenty twenty rhetoric vacuum of today that vacuum just includes a lot of Josh. Holly insisting that Google is biased a lot of. Brennan car, my new favorite commissioner right away. Pie Pies in second place he's out. His term is going to be up. To the new a lot of SEC commissioner Brenan cars yelling. At Google, you know the trump executive order basically imply that the FCC would somehow regulate speech you can go, and he's seems more excited about that. And the other SEC commissioners including Pie, but in the context of this or Something happened with the federalist, which is a conservative site around Google saying we're not gonNA. Put ads on your site, and that was just seized upon evidence of Google's Apocrypha. What happened there to the best of my understanding a lot of really really bad communication by Google so? Basic. Timeline of this was that NBC had pointed out some content that was posted by A. Group that calls out sites that seizes posting hateful misinformation and said Hey, are you going to do anything about this? And Google took a look at the sites <hes> which included zero hedge, which is another conservative log and the federalist, and it said okay. There are some bad comments here. That are horrible and racist and violate our policies, so we're GONNA. Warn the sites. They need to take action on this or we're going to monetize them. It then sent NBC a statement that said. Yeah, we have removed these sites ability to monetize with Google ads, which sounds pretty unambiguous. This was not actually. Actually the case, though so it turned out that darrow hedge had been banned. It seems like they have been warned and ban the federalist. They had given them a mornings that fix this, and then they'd been planning to ban them in the time in maybe a couple hours after NBC published, it's article. The federalists just turned off comments and Google said okay great, no harm no foul, and then they didn't really acknowledge that they had reversed pet. They just said. We haven't demonetized the federalist, which ended up bleeding to from a bunch of criticism of Google to a bunch of criticism NBC. So a lot of really dumb, confusion happened again the twenty twenty and nightmare rhetoric bubble. Right so the criticism and I want to just take it head on and saying out loud, so we can think about it. The criticism is from Josh Holly. These are his tweets from Brendon car. These are his tweets. Google is a hypocrite because they take advantage of two thirty, which means they are not responsible for what's on their sites, but then they punish the federalist for comments on its I have a very clear response to this, but Adam. We'll set that aside. What do you think of that criticism? I mean for one thing. The Google's not saying it's going to sue the federalists. Not Going to say it's taking money away from. It is not doing business with the federalist, which is fundamentally a pretty different thing than becoming entangled with the United States legal system.
Executive order takes aim at social media companies
"Earlier this week Twitter reddit a fact check label to to trump pose that made unsubstantiated claims about mail in voting trump responded with an executive order on Thursday that aims to curb some of the legal protections social media sites have regarding content my executive order calls for new regulations under section two thirty of the communications decency act to make it that social media companies that engage in censoring or any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield undeterred Twitter flagged a trump tweet on Friday for violating its rules against glorifying violence my guest is noted first amendment expert Eugene Volokh a professor at UCLA law school you can explain the liability protections that Twitter and other platforms get under section two thirty sure so let's say that somebody publishes something in a newspaper that libel I can do the newspaper and that's true even if it isn't a letter to the editor the newspaper liable as the publisher are things that it could know what someone live with me in a book store well in that kind of situation I couldn't sue the bookstore but it has certain protections treated in the distributor so I basically have to put on notice first but the book at live at the teller complied with me explain why that that point if the books to keep that up I can third question when somebody liable to me over the telephone even though they had back when their answering machine messages and outgoing and during wishing that people call the number they gave me something like a look about me you might call that a platform rather than a publisher distributor the telephone company is completely immune from liability likewise left the company live with me in email and night all up Google and say Gee email messages are being used to live only please cancel that account Google is also immune from liability and would be even in the absence of any federal statute so in nineteen ninety six Congress that that online service and content providers should be treated like like not like publishers like newspapers not like distributors like bookstores but kind of like the telephone company or any email they should be completely immune from liability from things other people that's why for example I can have comment on my blog without hearing that I could be shoot anytime somebody posts something presently liable to an account and that is true even in the online service or content provider does some screening either some screening with him after the fact removal so I'm going to be immune from liability for comment the people because even if I occasionally delete them comment that the car had the little girl personally insulting or for that matter I think they might be liable so then his Twitter within its rights to fact check trump posed with a link or even delete it you have to question one is to do with adding links perfect and that is your exercise the first amendment right Twitter speaking not Twitter blocking each responding to speak with a thought indubitably Twitter has a right to do then we'll have a right to do that even without federal section two thirty second question is what if Twitter delete that too is within its right under section two thirty it might also be part of the first amendment right you could argue that just like a newspaper has the right to refuse to publish something Twitter should have the right to delete things well that's a little bit of a closer call with me under section two thirty Twitter is indeed allowed to do that and what's more like there's some law out there that says service providers must be even handed in their actions with regard to post war cannot delete any posts even in the absence of section two thirty there wouldn't be any statute or the common law principle that requires Twitter to hold everything just like there's no rule that the bookstore after distribute every book that people ask it to district the border seems to be pushing the FCC to issue rules under section two thirty one of the things that is contemplated at least the draft that I have is actually having the secretary of commerce publication for rulemaking with the FTP asking that the entire property section two thirty in a way that limit service providers ability to block certain content it's not clear that the FTC has the regulatory authority to try to enter protection to thirty that way in any event it seems to me that the section it's pretty clear in allowing service providers to block whatever content they find objectionable so I don't think that that's going to go anywhere but at this point of course the call is to ask you to do something certainly the president is entitled to ask the FTC to do something the question is what can the FTC doing what we're in the midst of this on Wednesday the DC circuit court of appeals rejected claims that Twitter Facebook apple and Google conspired to suppress conservative views online tell us about that decision even in the apps section two thirty there's no legal rule that requires service providers to be air in what they allow and what they don't allow just like there's no legal rule that requires a bookstore to be even handed in the book by the seller that was the problem that the plaintiff there they claim to that social media companies generally we're discriminating against them because of their conservative political views but what about the family the person I am now that the court first amendment by the government it doesn't bind private social media company however important and powerful they might be second they said well this is a violation of antitrust law because there's this conspiracy when the court today no evidence of a conspiracy they've given no evidence of anti competitive agreements it's true that service providers do try to delete certain kinds of material that they find offensive but it doesn't show that that there is any violation the recursion was clearly correct in fact similar claims that's been brought before and been pretty much unanimously rejected by all the courts that have
