District to use virtual start to fix Philadelphia school buildings
"Virtual start to the school year gives the school district time to do more work on school buildings in Philadelphia, and as VW's Mike DiNardo reports, part of that work will be improving The airflow in school's concerned over how ventilation could affect the spread of covert 19 The school district evaluated airflow in its 220 school buildings.

Fresh update on "federation" discussed on Dan O'Donnell
"Back to Daniel Donald Show. It's 10 43. I'm Dave Michaels in for Dan. Joining me on the line is Wisconsin congressman Brian Style. Good morning. How are you? Normally the month of August, especially in an election year is Oddly, the slowest month politically speaking, but that is that is definitely not. The 2020 is thrown it out the window this year, hasn't it there? There are no breaks in 2020. It's a busy year. A lot. A lot is at stake this November. And so I'm working my tail off because I think our country's future depends on it. You're going to be in your district tomorrow for a back the badge rally. We'll get to that here in just a second. Let's start with the ongoing negotiations between the White House and Congress, both the Senate And and the house. Steve Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, said today is kind of the unofficial deadline to get something done. A what is the likelihood and B? What would it look like of another Corona virus relief package being passed? Well, I think what we need to do is step back and look at how are the funds are already allocated being spent. You know, there's a huge amount of federal money that hasn't even been spent in the state of Wisconsin. I sent a letter to Governor Evers and noting that less than 4% of the money provided to the state of Wisconsin. Has been spent on accounted for. So we have. About 96% of the $2 billion were provided to the state of Wisconsin haven't even been spent, and people want more money, and that's what we need to keep an eye on in Washington. Going to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars. We need to be thoughtful in this process, and we continue to see groups on the far left come back for more and more money rather than being thoughtful and being disciplined on how we spend taxpayer dollars. This must be the first time in history that federal funds or just sitting there collecting dust. I mean, normally, the money spent before it even gets into the account now, both on a state level and around the country, federal dollars. They're sitting there by the cares act, and they're asking for more money before the money was already And that they already have. The same is true in Illinois in Illinois is really, really good at spending money on they they haven't spent all the funds that have been allocated Illinois, which says A lot of funds were allocated originally. Now we need to be very good stewards in particular here in Wisconsin, about how we're spending those money so that we can keep our our our America healthy so we can keep the economy healthy, so we can keep our school's healthy. These funds need to be going so we can get schools open and get students safely and responsibly back in the classroom. This is where we should be focused, and instead we're having conversations about we need more money. But we're not asking the question about Howard. The funds that were previously allocated being spent going back to school for a second. The American Federation of Teachers is saying that government run schools around the country so again public schools. They need over $100 billion just to reopen safely, Natalie said twice the amount the federal government actually spends on K 12 education in in the most recent school year. Less than 2% of the money has actually been used by the state's so all 98% of the funding hasn't even been used yet. They're already looking for over $100 billion of new money. And if you look at the bill that the Democratic led house passed, I voted against it. This was A liberal wishlist giveaway buried in that bill are all sorts of pet projects for members. There's millions and millions of dollars for environmental justice Grant. I've tried to call this out, and we got need to continue to do this that we need to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars. We need to make sure that people who are impacted through no fault of their own gets the relief that they need and deserve. We can't use these funds to go on a spending binge knowing that ultimately future generations are going to be left holding the bag for the debt that we're racking up. We just need to turn the tide here. Make sure we're being laser focused and good stewards of taxpayer dollars. But how do you do that? Congressman, Congressman Brian Style here. On the Dan O'Donnell show. I'm Dave Michaelson for Dan. How do you do that? Because their people are hurting. They can't pay. Their bills are out of work in a lot of cases through no fault of their own, whether it was because of a state shut down or Their boss had to close the doors because, well, there aren't any customers. When you've got a statewide locked down, they do need help. And again, Politics aside, how do we get them? The resource is not justice necessarily funds the resources that they need to survive the day let alone month. Great, great question. And that's the right question to be asking that question. I'm asking in particular, Governor Evers is we look to see How Wisconsin is going through the process of spending the funds that have already been allocated to our state. So under the care of Zach. Months ago, federal government provided roughly $2 billion in the state of Wisconsin to do exactly what you're asking. How do we make sure the people who have been impacted through no fault of their own? Government orders of government shutdown. How are we making sure those people are protected? Wisconsin can only account for spending less than 4% of the total amount of money provided We need to get a full accounting of that money to make sure that we understand how we're going about making sure we're getting relief to those who need it, but not allowing members, Pet project and liberal boondoggles. You go off on a spending. Both are men and women in blue also need to be protected. Unfortunately, the conversation surrounding our nation's police officers are going in the opposite direction. Many cities, including Minneapolis and others looking to defund the police. Less resource is to keep our community safe Fact at a alarming rate. There's officers all over the country that are applying for early retirement or even disability, claiming PTSD. That's a big issue going on. Shockingly enough in the Minneapolis area. You're.
One of the Biggest Tekken Tournaments of All Time Never Paid Anyone
"Well over a year ago in March of two, thousand and nineteen, a series of East sports events were held in Khobar Saudi, Arabia including. The True Gaming Tekken invitational this single tournament featured a prize of one hundred, ten thousand dollars USD, which was then the single largest prize pool in taking history for a little context, the two thousand eighteen technical tour finals at a prize pool of Twenty Five K. and Evokes Tekken Prize. Pools are even lower than that and heavy hitters from around the world came to participate. In this thing, I'm talking to likes of Don's knee Chanel. Roma. Are Slash you get the picture from a production standpoint the true gaming tech invitational grave they had an awesome stage set up the stream quality was good. The had commentator and analyst desk great camerawork was clean and in terms of the actual game play competitively, the tournament was great i. mean we saw some of the best players of all time from all around the world give us some unforgettable moments. But after all that confetti was cleaned up after the stage was dismantled in after the community's attention shifted to other events there remained one big problem. Apparently nobody paid. Now this all hit the public's attention in a big way only recently when tech master provident fighting game player and one of the invitees to the gaming tech invitational tweeted about not receiving his prize money from a different event that was organized by the same people. Now, as far as the true gaming tech invitational goes the one with one hundred, Thousand Dollar Prize Pool I talked to tech and master about it, and he said that communication between the players who are owed money in the company who produced the event true gaming hasn't exactly been productive when it comes to when how or infant if they'll get their prize after one month. A number to contact with and every time the new right it's. Like on the process of giving you the process guys. we'd be coming back to you on. Data to and every time like the guy is saying, he did not receive any funding for the first. He's promised to receive it a next month. Don't want everytime delays rate rate until. One year happened instead even. One year under half extra. Here's the thing though true gaming say that they were hired just to produce the event and that the prize money has nothing to do with them at all I managed to get in contact with a guy named a Med almost STAFA. Who is the head of business development at true gaming and he says that the true gaming tech invitatinal took place within a larger event called. Gamers con. He told me that the owner operator of that event, a company called. Tail Events Exhibitions Management Co is responsible for the prize money we correspond over email about it and let me read to you what he told me quote true gaming's role in the event was to operate the competitions and gaming centered activities that have relied on our gaming industry knowledge and know-how. Our team has been contacted by the winners and his forwarded their grievances to k all A and have shared all contact information directly Takeo so that there is a direct. Line of communication and no delay caused by layered communications in the later email he also told me quote we've tried to finalize this matter on numerous occasions. We were even under the impression that it was going to conclude a sooner time and we are completely taken aback by how all have. Let this drag on for so long and quote worth noting here that shortly after I got in contact with gaming, they released a public statement about the matter that was. Very much in line with what they told me privately as far as this K- All events exhibitions management company goes that's where the trail goes a little cold for me I tried calling them with a number on their website and for me it didn't work I tried tweeting out I've emailed them and I tried to use a contact form on their website that is broken apparently so far as of the filming of this video I haven't heard anything back from them. Hubbert. Ladies Tom. Blood I can mean a look at a High Horse Shukran your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please make sure you enter the correct number. It's probably also worth noting here that there were a bunch of other invitational tournaments that took place on the same weekend within this gamers con that we're all organized by true gaming there was rocket league invitational. There was a beep invitation on their Mash Bros invitation and like I said, they were all organized by true gaming who seem to be a company who do everything from eastport centric youtube videos to mainstream game reviews to event production. Now, let's just back up for a quick second. Because there are other entities involved in this issue beyond just the players true gaming and this K- All events and Exhibitions Management Company, and I'm talking about agencies for the Saudi Arabian government see according to Tech and master about six months after the event when it became clear that they weren't going to get their prize money anytime soon, a lot of deep participants in the gaming, Tech. Invitational. Got Together an organized to try to figure out what their next steps they went to a guy who goes by the tag burke came and he contacted to Saudi Arabian government agencies namely, the General Entertainment Authority in Saudi Arabia and more pointedly. The Saudi Arabian Federation for Electric Intellectual Sports see the true gaming invitational had to be sanctioned by these bodies in order to put on their event in the first place and as to who this Berkane guy is. He is a Saudi Arabian eastport seen community leader and individual player manager who has served as a sort of go between between the players, the T os, and the government agencies that oversee East sports in Saudi Arabia and he told me that he's been in contact with those government agencies and they are actively investigating this situation. As we speak I have conducted the federation on behalf of some of the players and they. Did investigate the issue and I believe they have officially contacted all the parties involved in this case on soon, they would return resolve at least from where I'm sitting it's not going to be easy to figure out who's actually on the hook for this money according to Tech Master Burt. CAIN and some other folks I spoke to nobody actually signed any kind of contract or documentation that stipulated how when or I guess technically even if they would get paid out this prize money according to Burke Cain East sports in Saudi Arabia is still very much in a phase where contracts are not the standard sports itself and Saudi is still new. and. It started based on community efforts where almost everything was based on trust. That moved along when he sports stuff to grow on many companies started to throw big huge ovens. Everyone trusts what's being advertised after all the low in Saudi will hold you accountable for what you advertise. Let's say trust is what? being practiced here in Saudi I do believe that should change and perhaps tap. Last year will rise the awareness in the community

This is live our broad coalition of Illinois ins representing different industries. Geography, ease and even political leanings. Senator and Gillespie, Senator Selina Villanueva. Sham Toya from the Illinois Restaurant Association, Tim Dre from the NFL CEO. Kathy Griffin from the Illinois Education Association, Dan Montgomery from the Illinois Federation of Teachers. Don Villar from the Chicago Federation of Labor. Sheila Chalmers, current Mats and village president. And Brian Orzechowski from the Respiratory Health Association and open Safes, Illinois, a coalition of health, labor, aging and public interest organizations. They get everybody. I want to make sure I've called out everybody. Thank you. Um the people joining are not always drawn together with common purpose, but there are some causes that are fundamentally Right? And those causes draw people together from all walks of life and keeping our people healthy and safe is one of those causes. As I visited with and listen to mayors and health departments and people all across our state, it's clear that there is still an even greater need to get people to wear masks. Especially to protect frontline workers, whether they're at the front of the store asking you to put on your mask whether they're responding to 901 calls to save those in distress. As you know, Not only have I traveled the state encouraging people to wear face masks, But we've launched a public awareness campaign designed to change the behavior of those who haven't yet started wearing face coverings. I issued our state's mask mandate three months ago on May 1st Our actions today build on that work. First this morning, I signed legislation to enhance worker's rights in our pandemic response, increasing paid disability leave for injured police and firefighters, paramedics and other public employees whose recovery has been hindered. By covert 19. This legislation also offers protections from assault for retail workers, many of whom are tasked with asking the public to follow certain Cove in mitigation measures indoors. In many ways, these workers are now serving at the forefront of public health mitigation efforts in encouraging social distancing and the use of face coverings. It's in that same vein that the Illinois Department of Public Health is today submitting new emergency rules to assist law enforcement, local boards of health. Health authorities, state's attorneys and the general public in enforcing the use of face coverings and social gathering restrictions. These rules are common sense way to enforce mask requirements without jumping immediately to the extremely tough consequences that exist on the books today. They'll give local authorities a step by step guide on how to enforce masks and distancing and an opportunity to help businesses Act in good faith. The first step in the proposed rule is educating businesses on compliance. The next step is warning and the last step after these repeated attempts to urge compliance is a fine Otherwise, many local officials are only left with the stringent and severe enforcement mechanisms available statewide. Today, the existing enforcement options prior to this proposed rule, go immediately. To license revocation in the blink of an eye. This new rule provides multiple opportunities for compliance before any penalty is issued, and by focusing on targeted finds as part of a misdemeanor. These rules for scaled penalties. They're significantly less harmful to businesses than those currently available for enforcement are the right direction. The majority of states from our Midwest colleagues like Ohio and Wisconsin to Republican state led states like Georgia and Florida. Ohio is also Republican led. I should add have similar enforcement in place. And to be clear the mitigations that require enforcement haven't changed. There has been a face covering mandate in Illinois since May 1st 1 of the earliest in the nation, and over the last several months. A flood of states led by Republicans and Democrats have followed suit. The gathering limits in Illinois, under phase for currently apply to every region of Illinois, 50 people or gatherings of 50% of the buildings, maximum occupancy as locally determined. Schools must limit the number of people in one space to 50 or less. This new rule is focused on businesses, organisations, schools and childcare facilities. Individuals are not subject to any penalty under this rule, but are nevertheless required to wear masks in public. Let me repeat that This rule does not deliver penalties to any individual private citizen because of noncompliance. It is nevertheless their obligation under the law. The vast majority of Illinois ins have made the responsible and compassionate decision to wear a face covering went out and about and we're going to continue to rely on the public for enforcement on this level. Finally, these policy changes clarify the authority of I D ph and local health authorities to seek cooperation with businesses in covert 19 related investigations. Illinois has made substantial progress in our fight against covert 19 because the vast majority of communities and business owners have done the right thing and followed the public health guidance. These rules will help ensure that the minority of people who refused to act responsibly won't take our state backward. I asked that members of the General Assembly who serve on Jake are move forward expeditiously and give local health departments, law enforcement and communities the tools they need that are proven to stop the spread of covert 19..
Working, Making, Creating in Public and Private
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to the. podcast I'M SUNOL and I'm super excited to do one of our special book launch episodes for the new book coming out just this week working in public the making and maintenance of open source software by Nadia Ball and published by Stripe Press. The topic actually applies to all kinds of communities and groups coming together whether it's an open source project, our initiative of Department in a company, a club or a special interest group even group of friends and family because it's all about how people come. Together to coordinate and collaborate around some shared interest or activity whether participatory or not whether code or content, and so one theme. We also pull the threads on in this episode is about how the learnings of open source communities do and don't apply to the passion economy and create our communities as well. Nadia has long been immersed in studying the health of communities including getting funding from the Ford Foundation to study open source then worked at hub in developer experience then did research at protocol labs. And is now focused on writer experience at sub stack for longtime listeners of the six and Z podcast I've actually had her on the show years ago along with Michael Rogers our protocol labs than of the No jazz foundation where we talked about the changing culture of open source, you can find that episode on our site, but in this wide ranging hallway style episode Nadia, and I cover everything from types of communities, social networks, and the evolution of being online and ironically while the book is. Called working in public we also talk about the emergence of private spaces as well as the tragedy of Big Public Commons and how to counter the tragedy of comments which is why I believe everyone should read this book because it's a dirt of literature out there for the era of President Online collaboration creation and consumption that we're in we end with some practical advice for community managers, platforms and leaders, but we begin by defining open source in this context with a really useful taxonomy for categorizing communities. Earlier early was like I really hate this term and I just wish we gotta have something else like public software whatever. Love that I love it too. Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to change terms that everyone. On so I know this firsthand. Yeah. I mean I personally find the term kind of intimidating and it doesn't sound exciting when I say the term open source but it really does just referred to the distribution side of cook the existence of open source licenses made it very easy for anyone to use and modify and re Polish someone else's coat and put it in their own software but it doesn't really say a whole lot about how it was actually produced and so I made this analogy in the book, which is actually an analogy I borrowed from a friend Devon Devon Zuko, she still apple podcast for me I. Love Her yes, and says something like the term open source doesn't mean anything anymore than the term company does it's like, yes, we kind of get what a company is but there are so many different kinds of business models for different types companies with open source saying something as open source tells you a little bit about how the code might be used. That doesn't really say anything about how they're actually being made someone has to continue taking care of it. One of my favorite parts of the book is you actually outline different types of communities you call it classifying project types, but it's really to me how people are. Essentially social networks. Really. So why don't you break down that taxonomy and by the way the reason I'm asking is because when I think of the ARC in history of open source, the concept that comes to mind for everybody is that classic book by Eric Raymond, which is a cathedral and the bazaar and I think that framing has two long framed our discussion of open source and frankly any online community yet everyone sort of has maybe like General Santa W-what community is like others a bunch of members and their and organized around some common interests or reason for spending time together. In that highest level definition of community, there's an underlying assumption that all members are sort of similar than just the term members washes over the underlying dynamics between those different numbers and so what I started doing was saying, okay. There is a difference between at minimum, an open source people who are contributing to open source and people who are using stars. So I try to sort of separate out users and contributors and say, okay in some open source projects or as you said, really communities and general, some communities have high trigger and some communities have high user growth and then there's sort of like. Different permutations of that it's like federations, clubs, stadiums, and I forgot the fourth but toys in me what are so I think it's really useful to start with your taxonomy, a federations and onward. So federations are like the really big projects we might be thinking of like Lennox or. Where you have a lot of people who are contributing to the project and you have a lot of people that are using their project. But there are enough people that are working on the creation of that project that it does form his own sort of contributor community. By contrast, clubs have a lot of people who are participating in Chretien but they don't have as many people that are using it and said a product that's kind of focused on a niche interest. The example to give his Astro Pie, which is a Python Library for astrophysicists right? It's high contributor incredibly interested in that but very low user growth because how many people in the world are really interested in That intersection exactly and toys I sort of mentioned in passing in their police. Interesting thing to talk about that's where you have both low user and Lok contributor growth. So that might just be like a personal project them thinking around no one else is really looking at it. They're sort of waiting in the wings before they become one of the other types of communities

Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers
"Everybody from the British. Ask this week's interview. Episode has any Greenberg senior writer at wired. He just SORTA book called Sand Worm New Era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's Miss, dangerous hackers, it is all about hacking group inside of the Russian government called San Worm. They were responsible for the most damaging cyber warfare attacks over the past year there behind not PECI. The hackers took out in the mayor shipping line hospitals across the U. K San has totally escalated. What we think of Cyber War, and he's book gets all into how they were discovered how they were flushed out the. The intricacies of these various hacks. It's super interesting. The book is a thrill ride. If you're looking for something that isn't the virus. This is like a thriller, a highly recommended. It was really fun to talk to her about the stuff. one thing I. WanNa know we're all at home so during this in every might hear some kids in the background. I asked you just be a little forgiving that we're all. We're all dealing with it and he was a great interview. Check Out Sandy Greenberg of sand worm, a new era of cyber war and the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous hack. Any Greenberg your senior writer at wired you're also the author of Sand Worm, new era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous. Welcome glad to be here so even writing about cybersecurity frontier I think you just said two thousand six and writing about Cybersecurity, but this book sand worm as I was reading it. It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive.

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you. Thank you so much for coming on I know it's. It's a weird time to be talking about anything, but the coronavirus I was very happy to talk about something else, which is that it seems a little bit more in control Even if it is quite dangerous, a thank you for the time. I appreciate it. Yeah, I'm glad to provide people with a different kind of apocalypse as a distraction.

Sierra Club Denounces Founder John Muir For Racism
"A historic icon of the American environmental. Movement is in the spotlight John Muir founded the Sierra Club in eighteen, ninety two in San Francisco. The group's current leaders says the ongoing civil rights protests, leading to the dismantling of confederate monuments is causing the Sierra Club to reexamine its own racist history NPR's Kirk. Siegler reports. The group is pledging to remove some of its own John Maher statues. John Muir has long been revered by environmentalists. The California naturalists Biblical love. Wild places led to a legacy of federal wilderness protections, including Yosemite National Park, but mirror was also well known for making derogatory comments about blacks and native people and the modern conservation movement has wrestled for years with these transgressions in a letter to the Sierra clubs members today, current Director Michael Brune said this moment. Moment is a time to reexamine. The clubs own substantial role in perpetuating white supremacy. Bruins says the group will reconsider the views of some of its founders that lead to the modern movement being so white today when it comes to John Muir, we're looking to advance the conversation about yours legacy to look at him in a more comprehensive and inclusive way. That acknowledges his limitations. Limitations and shortcomings, the Sierra Club says it's considering removing some monuments to its founders. Brune is also pledging that the group will reorganize to ensure that a majority of its leadership is comprised of people of Color, and he hopes to spend five million dollars on diversifying their staff and training. The announcement was welcomed by Mustafa Santiago Ali of the National Wildlife Federation. You know it's long overdue. Overdue we have to address the sins of the past. He's one of the few people of Color who's actually in a leadership position in a major environmental group that major sin of the past, many of those folks felt that those spaces those natural spaces, those sacred spaces where meant for white men Ali says the modern day environmental movements lack of diversity in its writ large. Of Communities of color has had major consequences, one example, industrial facilities are often put in underserved neighborhoods and pollution from them as drifting into national parks like those John Muir fought to establish.

Yannick Noah Interview
"We've had a week off and. Has Gone to get his haircuts. Catherine's been hanging out with Magnus. The dog I've been stressing about my football team west from job in as they try to throw promotion away. That may or may not mean something to you, and we will be back with tennis podcasts over the coming weeks and months altogether chat in as we normally do, but today we have a very very special interview with the French Open champion of nineteen eighty-three, the world's number three as his highest ranking, but that really doesn't tell the story of Yannick who is unquestionably the coolest man I have ever met Davis Cup winning captain. Three Times Fed Cup winning captain as well and had a hugely successful music career. Once his tennis stays had come to an end I had the chance to meet him just over twenty years ago when he joined the champions tour. Tour retired players who just traveled to will played matches against one another him and John McEnroe and beyond bog, and all these greats of the game, and just got to know him a little bit at that time. He was always suggest to me. I haven't seen him for about ten years, but I managed to get in contact with him through a couple of other people when we were researching and trying to set up interviews full at tennis, relived series, particularly the French Open, so that we could tell that story, and you'll have heard an excerpt perhaps of this interview when we covered his run to that nineteen, eighty three French Open title, but the entire interview. It's just joy, and it will improve your mood, and if you do enjoy the into you tell your friends family, let your social media, and what's that group's now about it because it will just leave them happier than when they started listening to. It has Yannick Noah. I'd like to go right back to the beginning of your of your career, and even before your career and the reason for your career and. I believe a meeting with Arthur Ashe. Yep Absolutely. Our used to leave the group in Cameroon, Africa and We were I was playing detail club tennis was. Not, very, big in Cameroon in the whole country, back nine court, so to play tennis was very privilege radio privilege so. so we used to go to the club at night, but at that time my parents couldn't afford a racket in one day. When I heard that? Some Americans were coming to the club saw. Americans you know so. So Marty Riessen Charlie Pasarell, Tom, ochre, and Arthur Ashe where doing tour in Africa. And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court. So that was a beautiful story, so yes, the so mean Africa. And he was a big part of my story. Because and after that you know. For some reason, he was always like you know. Not Too far helping me when I was younger growing up, and then you know played with him at Wimbledon, the first tournament. Back in the days. It was called Super Seris. I was playing Richmond Virginia where he was born. And that was the first tournament I one. Super Series and As I was you know going through the tournament semifinal quarterfinals?

"federation" Discussed on Cor's Notes
"It's unfortunate, because if there's any politician who should understand the dangers of corporate welfare, and how it Burns towns pairs, it should be now Jason Kenny because the young Jason Kenney back in the nineties when he was head of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, he was the one who is pushing or leading the charge against corporate welfare. If you remember Corey. He actually proposed legislation to to L. Law Corporate Welfare Note Berta. He was the one who who pushed that the Canadian taxpayers. Federation when Prettier Candy was the head, they we. We released a report. That looked at corporate welfare. Would they call it? The time business boondoggles costing taxpayers more than two billion dollars in the eighties and early nineties Let me just pull a quote. From for Premier Kenny back in the early nineties. This is what did you see? This is what a younger Jason Kenney said and I quote for too long. Politicians have pretended. They were businessmen investing with other people's money, and they made a now salute failure of it so clearly, Kenny knows the dangers of corporate welfare, and now that he's was elected to be the route girded. He's also said that his government. Doesn't think picking winners and losers is the right way to grow the economy, but it's almost like he's speaking of both sides of his mouth year, because on the one hand he's talking about how well we need a a low in competitive taxes dumb and we shouldn't be picking winners and losers, but then on the other hand were hearing new announcements that are coming out. That is plain and simple. Simple corporate welfare. So why is it out as well Katie knows exactly why for welfare is is a bad policy is one of the few varies actually I, think we're the left and right quite often agree we get. It's galling is a capitalistic crony capitalism, and it's not giving people who've earned their their business rights within a or estate is somebody just has connections, and of course the left. Up Ten, proposed business altogether, but then why is it always so tempting for a government to dive into the corporate welfare over and over and over again like that? Well, you know I don't know exactly what the conversations are in the back rooms, but I think there is the political incentives right. On the market when it's businesses meeting customer's demands on the market, people decide to make investments for economic reasons. Right? Am I using these resources in the best way that I can earn a profit because I'm selling to a customer who's willing to give me for the good?.

Philadelphia teachers union says district’s back-to-school plan must prioritize safety
"Teachers union wants to make sure it's Cove it concerns are addressed when the district releases it's back to school plan this week.

Union president Jerri Jordan says the health and safety of students and staff is his top priority. He says teachers are concerned about the district hiring enough custodians to disinfect buildings. And his members are concerned they may be required to sanitize classrooms themselves. We are adamant about making sure that there are enough cleaners of that that the district hires enough players and that soap Is in the building that sanitizer are in the building. Jordan says the union did not help to draft the district's plan. But it did share the results of a pft survey, which showed that teacher's preferred a hybrid model of one week in school one week online. Jordan says he's especially concerned with how the district will accommodate immuno compromised teachers who don't want to return to school buildings.

"federation" Discussed on The Town Haul
"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the town hall as all move forward we have been stuck for like two and a half months now and it's really weird time in history but the town hall is staying dedicated to telling really important sustainability stories. And we're lucky. We get some really massive brands. This episode is one of those lucky ones. Today I'm actually joined by two guests. Jones enlisted were from National Wildlife Federation earlier in the year. Rubicon was named the official sustainability and tech partner for recycle mania of the competition under the management of the NWF but will get into all of that and enlists. Thank you both so much for being here today I've only done multiple jest episodes like once or twice so let's just establish a little bit of water for answering some of the questions. Honest truth besides my husband and my dog youtube or the only people. I've interacted with today so I'm a little over all of us to bumble words over each other so Liz let's start with you. Tell me a bit about your role at. Nwf A little bit about your professional time line and how you can got to where you are and then in that time line or in your story what do you think sparked passion for environmental sustainability in in Christie. You're on deck and I'd love to know the same free. We'll start with this. I am the director of Pre K. To twelve education for National Wildlife Federation. I have actually end with the fedaration for most of my career. I'm going into my twenty four th year and I really started off in a regional office and did a lot of regional education work and for the last eleven years have been focusing my efforts and the national level And really pushing forward the work that we do with schools and other informal education opportunities and community My background actually. My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology and forestry and I started off as a wildlife biologist but Kinda fun interesting fact is I found. I had a lot more fun topping and and I feel like I made a bigger impact talking with people within the community that I was doing my research in collecting data. You know like the nighttime Barstool chat where we were talking about. Grizzly Bear Habitat. And what it meant to you know Maintain and keep that habitat healthy and the ways people get involved so that that's somewhat how I moved from that into education and got my masters in education at in Oregon And then pretty much. Except for one other job with The Lake Champlain Basin Program doing watershed education. I've been working for WF And you know my my passion for this work. I I think really stems back from my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend every single summer and a place called a Greensboro Vermont which is in North East Kingdom of Vermont on Kathy Lake. It was my grandparents Cabin and my parents would just throw out the door every morning We'd be gone all day with the catching crayfish and swimming at night. We'd be catching lightning bugs and watching a shooting stars with my grandparents and it just it set the stage for my wanting to be able to pass this Passion for Nature and the environment and to also protect loved that Christie Europe. Sure yeah so I have been with National Wildlife Federation for several years as well. I think I'm going on. I started in two thousand three at National Wildlife Federation. So I guess I'm going on my sixteenth seventeenth year. I've worked in higher education program so I manage higher education programmes at National Wildlife Federation working with colleges and universities working with them to help them advance their efforts on campus Sustainability Renewable Energy Waste Reduction Habitat Restoration Green purchasing that sort of thing. And I've I've done that since the entire time I've been at NWS We also in our program here. We also help college students. Young professionals develop leadership skills and also learn more about career opportunity so career development to learn what their opportunities are in conservation field or their opportunities are in learning about sustainability and sustainability skill. So they can bring that to whatever a career field sector. They choose to go into after they finish school. So I believe you know similar to Liz. I grew up outdoors playing all the time spending all day in the summertime that we would be out as soon as the sun was up and become home. You know. As soon as it was starting to get dark I grew up camping. You know we would go to the closest national park to win where we grew up was Shenandoah National Park here in Virginia and I still live in this area in that area. So we we go to the park all the time. It's beautiful and so I take my little girl there as well So just growing up. We spent a Lotta time outdoors. I really enjoyed seeing wildlife and spending time and hiking and going to the beach and searching for seashells and that sort of thing when I graduated college. Actually a little bit. Before I graduated college I went on a trip to Andros Island. The Bahamas in it's a family island in the Bahamas and I went to a field station their biological field station and that is where I spent the next six years of my life. After College I worked at the field station. I worked with college. Students and high school high school students helping down learn about ecology and learning field skills in that type of thing and that really helped me really understand value of hands on learning. So you know whenever you education as you know there's sitting in the classroom and learning there is value to that there's also value to being out in the field learning skills. You know the experiential part of that and so. When after that after I left the field station I worked for nonprofit for a little bit in the environmental security sector and that really looked at conflict around natural resources so water timber diamonds was another example and that that was looking at conflicts most likely outside the US. And then. When I started looking for a new opportunity I was really attracted to. Nwf's education programs. We have a very large education program. National Wildlife Federation engaging. Little kids all the way up through adults and so that is kind of what got me hooked at. Nwf and applied for a job on the campus sustainability team. And so I've been here since two thousand three. That's awesome okay so I will let you guys now kind of feel these answer. You know whoever wants to answer white and build upon each other's responses in we're going to focus a lot on education recycle mania but you know the. Nwf Is a massive umbrella brand for a lot of different environmental conservation causes. So I did want to do a little bit of background about the mission. You know the strategic plan the six pillars of what makes the NWF and then we can get into the specs of the educational programs so whoever wants to field kind of the overall NWF mission answer can A. I'll go again and you know the midst of NWF is really to unite ensure that wildlife thrive in a rapidly changing world and There's no doubt in all of our minds and these days that our world is rapidly changing whether it's with this pandemic Like we're facing right now or the pack that more than one third of Americans. Fish and wildlife are at risk for extinction or the climate crisis. And of course all of these impacts what the impacts are on any of our marginalized communities so you recently. I just wanted to mention this because I think it's really important and it really sets the stage who I believe. Nwf is particularly right now and our it was CEO Calling Amarah who recently said that we need to be leading this charged with compassion. You know during this time because this pandemic is clearly showing that men. There are many structural inequalities in our societies such as access to clean water food healthcare or the

"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the town hall as all move forward we have been stuck for like two and a half months now and it's really weird time in history but the town hall is staying dedicated to telling really important sustainability stories. And we're lucky. We get some really massive brands. This episode is one of those lucky ones. Today I'm actually joined by two guests. Jones enlisted were from National Wildlife Federation earlier in the year. Rubicon was named the official sustainability and tech partner for recycle mania of the competition under the management of the NWF but will get into all of that and enlists. Thank you both so much for being here today thank you. I've only done multiple jest episodes like once or twice so let's just establish a little bit of water for answering some of the questions. Honest truth besides my husband and my dog youtube or the only people. I've interacted with today so I'm a little over all of us to bumble words over each other so Liz let's start with you. Tell me a bit about your role at. Nwf A little bit about your professional time line and how you can got to where you are and then in that time line or in your story what do you think sparked passion for environmental sustainability in in Christie. You're on deck and I'd love to know the same free. We'll start with this. I am the director of Pre K. To twelve education for National Wildlife Federation. I have actually end with the fedaration for most of my career. I'm going into my twenty four th year and I really started off in a regional office and did a lot of regional education work and for the last eleven years have been focusing my efforts and the national level <hes>. And really pushing forward the work that we do with <hes> schools <hes> and other informal education opportunities and community <hes>. My background actually. My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology and forestry and I started off as a wildlife biologist but Kinda fun interesting fact is I found. I had a lot more fun topping and and I feel like I made a bigger impact talking with people within the community that I was doing my research in collecting data. You know like the nighttime <hes>. Barstool chat where we were talking about. Grizzly Bear Habitat. And what it meant to you know <hes>. Maintain and keep that habitat healthy and the ways people get involved so that that's somewhat how I moved from that into education and got my masters in education at in Oregon <hes>. And then pretty much. Except for one other job with <hes>. The Lake Champlain Basin Program doing watershed education. I've been working for WF <hes>. And you know my my passion for this work. <hes> I <hes>. I think really stems back from my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend every single summer and a place called a Greensboro Vermont which is in North East Kingdom of Vermont on Kathy Lake. It was my grandparents <hes>. Cabin and my parents would just throw out the door every morning <hes>. We'd be gone all day with the catching crayfish and swimming at night. We'd be catching lightning bugs and watching a shooting stars with my grandparents and it just it set the stage for my wanting to be able to pass this <hes>. Passion for Nature and the environment and to also protect loved that Christie Europe. Sure yeah so I have been with National Wildlife Federation for several years as well. I think I'm going on. I started in two thousand three at National Wildlife Federation. So I guess I'm going on my sixteenth seventeenth year. I've worked in higher education program so I manage higher education programmes at National Wildlife Federation working with colleges and universities working with them to help them advance their efforts on campus Sustainability Renewable Energy Waste Reduction Habitat Restoration Green purchasing that sort of thing. And I've I've done that since the entire time I've been at NWS <hes>. We also in our program here. We also help college students. Young professionals develop leadership skills and also learn more about career opportunity so career development to learn what their opportunities are in conservation field or their opportunities are in learning about sustainability and sustainability skill. So they can bring that to whatever a career field sector. They choose to go into after they finish
"federation" Discussed on The Omega Particle
"In my humble opinion as the Anchorman of Federation that you wouldn't pay because if you paid that would be money in that something. The federation doesn't have internally and then if you bartered then to be Barter Society embar economics and that's not necessarily true in the federation there's no reference Alex so you wouldn't pay because again it's based on reputation. Were in this almost have to kind of think outside the box. So if Cisco's Creole Restaurant was the best restaurant New Orleans. He'd be a very wealthy man. That would be very affluent place to eat you one eat there of course and so instead of just doing exchange of money you would be exchanging the reputations that makes any sense and I mean if you want to get really technical. I don't think you'd pay. Because CISCO DOESN'T PAY FOR HIS SUPPLIES AND HIS SUPPLIERS. Don't pay for them so no one's getting paid a whole process if no one's getting paid and no one does anything and there's limited resources with all the technology so that means anybody can have anything they`ve. I went ten million star ships. I can have it and of course. No there is a limit. There is a restriction on energy usage in the federation. Now I think it's a personal aspect in a personal need or want anything. That's a little bit different can satisfy one person like Oh. I need kitchen furniture because I don't have any or things like that. I think are fine but I mean you just can't go to the shipyards and be like I want ten million chips and I want them now so there there are restrictions and we'll get into what I think is how the federation keeps his economy going instead of cash. A physical legal tender energy usage is probably jewels. Even you know that Unit of energy. So this is now getting into like what more of my personal thoughts of the federation. And how societies evolved into the twentieth century. So it looks like we got to the federation through a democratic capitalistic European socialist model that they expanded benefits to the point. Where no one needs anything so think about it this way? If if there was a a way for the government to give you ten million dollars per person then there would be no point on collecting resources because you can have as much as you want as many as you want to a limit to a point but it would just be. You wouldn't even think about need. You wouldn't even think about collection of material wealth and in that way and like I mentioned before where it's all about artists and evolution of society and evolution of yourself that would mean in my opinion that the society would be massively productive and efficient being because these people want to be at their current Pos. They WANNA do their job. They WanNa be good at their job and they're not just going to be sitting there counting down the time to five o'clock passion for the work because if not why be there. There's no point to be. They're kind of like our society. Now where you have people play on their phones or just kill time talking with a coworker so they can just pass the time because they don't really want to be there so I think the federation or the twentieth century has that problem and like I mentioned before the amount of welfare benefits available to all. The citizen is massively excess of the needs of of any one individual citizen slab makes money irrelevant in the lives and whether exist or not doesn't matter because you don't really need it because you have everything you need times ten. Also resources are still accounted for an allocated and tracked and measured. But I just think it's done through energy output in those jewel so again like if if you just make nothing by ten million star ships. They'll probably cut you down and be like what are you doing? Stop you're wasting and we've seen this before it's starship especially Voyager 'cause you're trapped in the Delta quadrant so they're like hey we only have so much limited a lithium so much power so everyone's GonNa have rations on the replicator so I think it would definitely be that way for the Federation instead of currency and money energy and I mean no one's really going to be paying attention to that because the average person's not gonNa care if they oh what's my daily output or with my daily energy is still two thousand jewels or one million jewels compared to one point one million jewels of yesterday. So no one's really gonNA matter about that. It's just because again all your cares are wants or need and that's kind of having to break that mindset that we have when we think about the twenty four th century so answering the big question that I really thought about today is why do people do crappy jobs in the federation now. We've seen this before. There's people that screen bulkheads there's people that do landscaping there's people that do these kind of hard manual tough work that anybody in their right mind be like. Why would you do that if you could just not you know? Be At home all day. Why would you kill yourself or or stress yourself to that point and I think there's two options Two reasons why number one that they do care so much about their energy output in energy rations that they want to increase that whether it be Incremental amount they still want accumulate as much energy as possible which in the twentieth centuries we know from those clips in through just watching the movies in the shows that a massive cultural philosophy has changed that the acclamation of wealth and excess of material. Things in excess is frowned upon. However I think number two is the real reason why is that? There is has been a massive societal pressure throughout the hundreds of years from the twenty first or twenty fourth that changes the nobility of certain jobs so for example. I know right now. We're dealing with covet. We're how valuable. These teachers are realizing. How valuable the Stock Shelf? People are the people that work at the grocery store. The people that Drive trucks and before maybe two years ago we were like. Yeah okay. Whatever like his job but now it's like wow you make society run and there's a whole new appreciation for that and Mrs happened because a covert and I think that's awesome and I think we should do the knowing with those physicians but with a lot of this public service positions that we don't normally think about and I think that's changing twenty first century. There's almost a nobility in then kind of like how we think of doctors like. Well your doctor here really rich or you do a Lotta things like well now. They could be saying that about teachers. They could be saying that about artist could be seen them Whereas wow you stimulate children's minds on ar or you take care of books and you take the most valuable resources and and teaching the next generations. Are you help society run and by transporting cargo ships and so there's never a negative in my just massive years watching searching. There's never a negative outlook on certain professions. In the federation everyone gets treated with respect from the listening to the officers and starfleet. So it's across the board. I think that's why I think there's definitely more just noble cause for that and I think that's a beautiful thing to shoot for and I think that's what makes star Trek. So great in my opinion is that it provides us clear roadmaps to be like wow. Wouldn't this be awesome that we could do one day no matter if you're a strict free market capitalist or your piece Hippie Love Marxists who want everybody to just be equal. I think it's too beautiful thing to shoot for and again. I'm not trying to get political. I'm just trying to talk about these basic questions about. Hey how do they have money? And why do people do these crappy jobs in the federation? It was a fun episode explore on economics as we wrap up but that has been the economics of the Federation. Thank.

"So now we see the earth is beyond money. It's beyond those typical resources of climbing the corporate ladder and in stepping on each other's necks and the humanity has evolved and. I really hope we can get there one day. That'd be great but for now the earth is living in a post scarcity economy so pretty much meaning. We have no scarce anymore. Because we've replicator technology and technological advancements no one is in need of any material thing we can just replicate it and we can create it. And there's a lot of rumors out there and kind of conspiracy theories about the federation and they're Connie and how functions now works is just we have today but more razzle-dazzle the next segment. We're just GONNA cover the facts. What we know for sure through multiple resources multiple examples through the shows in the movies. What is actually in the federation exactly how they operate their economy so first off. We know that the federation is clearly not a centralized planned economy. Best Way to describe it's not a Marxist or communist society and I know that some people say well that can be debated and that's it is what it is. Maybe that's the end goal but to me it's The State Federation has no saying in what you do for living. Will you do for a job? Is that individual? Freedom of choice is very obvious in the federation I mean everyone in their brother always has some nostalgic teary eyed story about. Why they wanted to join starfleet and and go into the stars and explore and search out there humanity so there's multiple multiple examples of that so the federation is a mandating certain professions on people. It's allowing freedom of choice. Just name a few Bashir. He wanted to be a doctor. Non Famous tennis player and Wesley. Dropped out a STARFLEET ACADEMY AND CASSIDY AID. So maybe a cargo ship captain. So it's there's a wide variety over gender over sex that Kinda lids anybody do whatever they want and I think that's the ideal in a perfect world is individual choice. Freedom reigns supreme in an economy however though private ownership still exists. So that's why I say was in a full centralized economy because you still have some private ownership and of course some of the biggest examples of that is Cisco'S CREO restaurant in New Orleans from Diaz nine and of course the famous Chateau Picard Captain John Wick Picard owns in t and G and then the titles show a card so private ownership still exists in the Federation in the twentieth century and also on just like a super basic level. You can see that in the trinkets the little individuality people put in their quarters. If you own a war says all Klingon go into Tom. Perez all nineteen fifties and sixties. So it's there is some individuality. There is some expression of private ownership in private trinket so definitely keeps it in there. I mean even crusher has that Haunted mansion quote UNQUOTE BECAUSE. Gosh episode crazy on that old Scottish settlement planet so there is still property rights in the Federation. So it's not completely centralized like. I said before also though the federation is still not perfect still uses kind of imminent domain on certain planets in subjects that it deems necessary for example. That's how we got the marquee and that's how you get certain planets and territories of the Federation Kinda uses playing cards and leverages when they make treaties especially with the Kardashians in DS. Nine where they gave away. All of these federation colonies to the scenes and ak how we got the Marquee so federation still plays that twentieth century trump card. Some time you say well how do you know that John? You know it. Private ownership in eminent domain. And the the federation has kind of power to let individual deciding in lead. The individual have property rights is because the alternative to that. The Federation isn't letting people like sublet or rent. Yeah there's no reference to that at all it's all about my land my this my that I mean even Kirk in Star Trek Generations as oh. This used to be my house and I sold years ago. So there's still some of that left is not a complete utopian communist society which that's how we ended up in twenty four century. That's fine yeah wants you to get all the facts and that's what it is my friends so the answers come up next says is the federation even a truly post scarcity society and postseason the economy. Because when you say Poe scarcely that means it's unlimited resources I know replicator in certain technology provide that. However what's the limitations on that? What's the are there limitations on that? Can somebody just get whatever they want? And we're and this is what led me to cover the subject because I want to know the answer to that. This is a good question. What's are people allowed to do? What freedom's do they have? Is there any restrictions or reservations on energy use? Because that's the main currency. In my opinion that will cover layer energy use and energy output so just from everything I've research and looked at the federation is still not a perfect Poe scarcity. They still have issues they still have Famines and shortfalls issues where people need medical supplies. I mean how many. The and original series episodes are there where some plan doesn't have medical supplies or some plan in food issues or tear forming problem. I mean it's just it's limitless like Bradley Cooper No There's definitely going to have supply. Line issues definitely. GonNa be transportation problems moving that much material in resources through a massive space of the Federation of the Alpha quadrant. So so there's still some serious issues because I mean the federation might have an food and medical supplies on Earth. That's not everywhere. And so when they give those and you get those episodes like captain's log we're going to the and drama system or something like that and it's like oh they don't have medical supplies so those peiser coming from somewhere so every every society and planet in the Federation isn't completely post scarcity but I would say earth is pretty close to post scarcity so this is one of the most interesting aspects to me of why I wanted to do in episode like. This is because one about jobs because you see all the time in in the background you see people. Doing landscaping are driving buses or or sometimes being like office admin assistant so there are not these glamorous jobs so I've always thought why do people still going to work if they're not getting paid now to me that's crazy before we get into the specifics of how do they get people to do jobs that our society in the twenty-first century doesn't really value? Let's get into the philosophy that we covered a little bit with those clips. Beforehand and big philosophy of the federation is that it's based on self improvement in cultural enrichment. Those are the things that are valued and to me. That's amazing that now society gone to a point where your reputation and your value bring your community is number one in how you determine wealth now. That's a beautiful awesome way to do things because it still satisfies that primal nature of wanting to compete of wanting to do more and to build something but in this way you're building yourself and or building your community and uplifting those things which win roddenberry created this idea. What was awesome in a beautiful idea and beautiful concept to shoot for that we can live in a society with no needs or wants materially and that we are left with only ourselves and society to improve upon. I mean just think like you could just have a million. Jk rollings or The advancements in science technology or art could just be limbless at that point when you have a complete majority of the population exploring those and enriching themselves. Negatives me back to something that I mentioned before when everybody just sit down and do nothing and I think that wouldn't be the case because you have to see what society value news. I'm sure there are people. No matter what you do in what society will always do nothing but here you can still be superwealthy and super great and super respected by just being an or podcasters. Just kidding so I think that's a great thing to shoot for but it still internalizes that competition that instead of going out and competing against one another in a capitalistic society to climb the ladder were competing within ourselves which now only advances oneself but also size hole in my humble opinion again. I'm not trying to be super political or like that. We're just talking about the philosophy of a economics and philosophy labor while I never thought I'd say those sentences speaking of labor and jobs where negative reputations most important. What about the money would about that? Moolah what about that sweet sweet bread and I talking about cinnamon rolls people. I'm talking about cold. Hard cash now depends on what you read but just in my research the federation they just don't use they ain't got no money they ain't got no greenback legal tender wherever you WANNA got. They don't got and they don't use it and this is how I know it's basic and absolute Kirk says it and Star Trek. Six undiscovered country Picard says a multiple times and even quirk mocks humanity to wrong that we don't use any currency so I mean even on top of that roddenberry himself put it down as a rule when he first started star. Trek so the federation doesn't use money and just based on those examples that I just listed. That's how it came to that conclusion. Now I think it's a great idea if you're going to create a perfect Utopian Society in the twentieth century to just get away with money because then it gets all in the way of well. That's why people want to be starship. Captains and how dues federation pay for all this and Etcetera Etcetera in removes from the equation centers humanity once again which I think is a good thing to be however this is a big however money still exist in the federation and they even have banks in the federation and they use it by something on the Federation Credit and I was credit was such a weird like Saifi way to call money or legal tender like. Oh this is a credit. These are black two credits. They're no good here the different franchise but you know what I mean. So there's federation credits and we've seen him use a couple times especially in TNG where crusher bought some fabric at far point station Diaz nine even mentioned the Bank of the Bolic's were on a Federation Planet. So there are banks are currency being traded within the federation and there. Is that legal tender? And I think that's smart Especially when the and I think the main purposes of as when the federation trades with other societies out there that don't have that same philosophy or that same on ideals as them they can still have that shipment have that trade go on and usually like they say you never usually go to war with people. You're really good trading partners with so that Smarter Federation to keep that intact. I mean I can see why. It super confusing credits. But you don't have money. What is what does that and Kirk. Even as a little slight of hand to Spock says will federations invested one hundred. Twenty two thousand in you so I mean. People are aware of credits that they're being used in the in the variations. Not something like secret high-society type of things so everybody knows about it but it's just I think more use for other societies that they interact with in my opinion. I mean they're still classism. In the Federation you have admirals. You have presidents. You have colony leaders. You have starfleet officers. You have starfleet enlisted people you have. There's a lot. There's a lot of different sociological aspects. GonNa cover that here. We're just mainly dealing with economic financial terms. But it is really interesting to see how it's humanities evolved in this dream Utopian scenario where. Yeah you know what? We don't have to have resources but we can still attain titled Things that fulfills his. We're starting to Kinda get to the end of this. This isn't going to be incredibly long episodes just covering the federation didn't throw in the KLINGONS May Be Really Long. And this is a very deep heavy subject matter. Sunil want people to fall asleep especially if you're driving but So I'm do some thought exercise I was thinking of. Maybe let's have some questions like for example like practical things like so if I go into CISCO'S CREO restaurant in New Orleans and I walk in the door and ordered some food and I eat it. Do I pay do I pay now?.

The Anchorman of the federation the Doctor of lifting this is Jonathan began. Welcome to you mega particle. It's OK P P you know me yes I am your host Jonathan weakened the guiding light for the Star Trek universe in this troubled dime. Welcome to the Omega Particle and yes. We are broadcasting today again on the eastern coast of the United States in my trek recording bunker or as to call it my garage today. I'm really excited about this episode. It's one of my personal favorite hobbies to read about and learn about Got Hooked on college and no. We're not talking about Mario Kart. We're talking about economics and this has been one of the subjects I've had on my bucket lists to cover ever since I started this podcast this past February so I'm excited to dive deep into the economics of the Federation as for now this will just be a one episode into the Federation. I've thought about making more episodes on. Maybe the Klingons Farang e or things like that. But I don't know if it takes off will Possibly do that. Who knows but for now? I'm just going to enjoy the federation because I was Actually having this Google hangouts with some lifelong friends from college and of the Big Trek Fans. There was actually like man. I'm excited for this subject. It seems really cool. Had questions about like Desert Federation money. What about scarcity in the federation o-man hold onto your hats? We're going to cover all that my friends. This will be very depth economic talk. So if you're not used to that To cover it make it. Layman's terms possible. It's really not that complex discovering super big questions like how people work in and do those kind of crappy jobs and no one wants to do in the federation if you don't have to work and how is the signing evolved to the point where They don't have to have money or resources. Have ANY SCARCITY ISSUES? The normally drive economies so We're going to cover all of that today. I'm excited to do so and just remember. You can always reach us at mega particle podcasts on Instagram and at Mega particle underscore on twitter Again thank you so much for following in just keeping up with the podcast means a lot. Yeah let's get into the economics of the federation before. I really dive deep into the economics of the federation one of the ways. I can help us as give you an a kind of a an insight into my economic mind and they've definitely been shaped by people. Like Friedrich Hayek Known Freeman Thomas Soul. Definitely read some piketty to be as well rounded as possible and those to me are some of the Great Economic Minds of the Twentieth Century in the twenty first century. However now we're moving onto the twenty four th century and it's a little change of pace than what we're normally used to hear at a P P but I'm excited to cover it and thank you for coming along for the ride. So basic economics states that we live in a world of limited resources so that creates the scarcity that there's only so many limited things out there pretty much that we have to dictate how their spent and we do that now through currency and money and that is one of the ways that economies are built. How do we deal with this scarcity scarcity issues and there're several we've covered on earth such as capitalistic free market to socialism and Marxism to mixture of Capitalistic Socialist in Europe? That's hot right now. Don't worry we're not going to get super political or dive deep into that or which is better which is worse or anything like that when he came it. Strictly in the twenty four century baby. And we're not gonNA dive into the things that plague our facebook feeds and our twitter feeds news news news. This is For me personally star. Trek is an escape. And that's what it's GonNa be today's well today. We'll be covering just GONNA laid out for some and I mentioned in the intro a little bit kind of how does money work in the federation our goods and services provided for how do they deal with scarcity. Do they even trade? Why do they trade? How do they trade? And what's the philosophy of their economic system like what drives it? What's going to get people to go to work? And those are simple questions. We answered our own economies today. But it's a little bit different when you have limitless resources like They do in the Federation in the twentieth century. So today we're going to cover some clips from a famous. Tng episode and Star Trek first contact. Where Picard is describing life in the twenty th century how they have no need for money how humans evolved out of that. And how? We're better for it kind of just get a foundation first and foremost from captain himself. So let's play that and I'm GONNA to back to back and we'll cover from there. That's what all this is about. A lot of change in the past three hundred years people are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of things. We've eliminated hunger. Walked the need for possessions. Grown out about infancy. Got It all wrong. It has never been about possession. It's about power power to do what to control your life. Your destiny kind of controlled is an illusion. Economic future is somewhat different. She money doesn't exist in the twenty. Th Century money pain BECUA- session of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to petro south on the rest of humanity..

"Said John your host Rick wolf this morning show I want to talk about soccer any particular use high school and travel team soccer there are a lot of things changing these days in the world of youth soccer and I want to spend some time discussing these developments for example last week I mentioned in passing on the show that the U. S. soccer federation because of the pandemic was shutting down all of its spring and summer activities tournaments and events no surprise there but this past week rumors started to fly that the the federation was also going to shut down its long time development academy for talented soccer players and the this past Wednesday that announcement was made but it was unclear as to why the move to shut down the development academy the DA was done was only due to the pandemic or were there other reasons involved not understand that for a number of years high school coaches around the country have chafed at seeing some of their best players leave their high school varsity team to join the DA program these programs have traditionally told high school players to simply make a choice either stay with the DA or you can go back to your high school team but if you go back to your high school team you know I come back to our program now this always struck me as the most difficult and quite frankly unreasonable decision for high school players and their parents at least from my perspective it was a necessary move and now you are such a you will basically U. S. soccer's always insisted that those ten weeks in the fall during the salt will fall soccer season were central to any youngster who ever had any hope to play in college or beyond that they couldn't miss out on the elite D. A. coaching and competition during the the traditional high school soccer season but was that position that point of view really accurate that event I want to talk about this today because the DA program we've probably heard you follow soccer was wiped out this week a lot of things are in motion that is a lot of confusion out there and I want to welcome back to to the sports surge Matt Allen the highly successful head coach of Byram hills high school boys soccer in Armonk New York and you know I say it Matt's got some record he's been the coach of Byram hills for nineteen years it's one of state championship New York state coach of the year in two thousand eight in two thousand sixteen is northeast coach the year two thousand seventeen the national coach of significance he's resides is the president of the sexual coaches association for over a decade Matt this is quite a resume and I know we've talked in the past about your concerns about the development academy and good morning so to talk to good morning he record thanks to the introduction you home that it's all true it you really have put together a tremendous tremendous resume let's talk first about the you know the fact that there is this tradition with the of the soccer federation and the development academy they always seem to to rob high school coaches and subsequently the players the wrong way because of force these top players to have to decide between playing for the high school team or playing for the D. eighteen temp tell me about your your feelings about that and how how it's involved over the years when you have you been coaching of Byram hills right I think the intention of the of the DA program is in is in the right the fact there was supposed to take the top one percent of players and and put them at a higher level which which is understandable you you want to make sure that you showcased on the major issues through the years has been the idea that the MLS clubs the twenty six MLS clubs who have their would have their teams and that would really be a a will wind up happening was they expanded so much to Q. before shut down a hundred and sixty plus teams kind of watered it down a little bit it would start to happen was up I take a full set of goods being sold to some of the average or above average soccer players to to play in this academy system and it was placing a drain on on on the high school programs and the surrounding clubs that were not necessarily regarded academy okay so basically is he said this is this was a sort of making false promises are all offering kids and their parents sort of a sense like okay if you come here you go playing is better competition you'll get better coaching you'll get better showcases if though if your youngster hopes to go on to play in college at some point maybe turn pro and now they say that's the DA is gone Matt this is a is this is this is a guy said he was good news for you are you happy with the situation well yes and no the the problem folding up the academy system is that they really haven't given us parameters on what what they're gonna do going forward anything else is gonna stop off and replace it you know one of the frustrating things from the DA was the fact that their age groups are broken up into fourteen sixteen and nineteen so you're taking the average fourteen year old before he gets the high school to make a decision as to whether or not he's gonna play for this academy or play for for high schools so the decision was pretty much already made for them no the issue really is is is geographical our country is really big and you only have twenty six teams so you could take a fourteen year old who's living in New York have issued out to you know one of the new teams coming up here about the Charlotte for for game and the actual release no so where what we're waiting for a check with a lot of the sexual high school coaches are waiting for is one of the academy teams gonna do where they can form their own leads is the MLS gonna form a leak for example New York is on the Red Bull gonna form with let's say that she Westchester and and and join a league here and what type of leader they gonna run it again right at twelve months a year ago right at nine months a year well that's exactly what I was living up to and we're talking with Matt Allen this morning and friends will take your calls about this because we're all sort of scratching our heads and confused as to what happens next of course our number is one eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six we'll take your calls and comments Matt what is going to happen because this went down now there's a vacuum well they have the complications with with the pandemic and nothing really happen this spring or summer and it looks like in the US is going to come in now and try to sort of fill this void but I also know that the the elite clubs National League the S. E. C. N. L. which is traditionally known for its great women's programs girls programs they want to join the fray and old session on the west coast number of the boys programs of our joining with the E. C. N. L. so what is gonna happen who's going to come forth now and say okay forget the D. A. that that didn't work we lost a lot of money on it a lot of the distant make sense do you get the sense the MLS is gonna come announcer organizes and step up and say okay we'll we'll cut through all the the clutter and and figure this out so people know what's happening well we also I mean the the local clubs in and around Westchester county New York Stock love for example some pretty good in contacting and getting with high school coaches we're kind of hoping that the model that they adopted is a nine month model kind of open that some leaders on the U. S. landscape like American although we'll we'll reach out any we know for sure that he is one that says the motion applying high school is so much more important than playing in these really fabricated games on the on the academy level so we're really hoping that I think successful supersectional really hoping that the clubs will allow the kids to play to play both and and look to support one another that would be probably a best case scenario yeah I mean I would think that does make a lot of sense look obviously you as I just a little too in your your record you've coached and had great success at the at the high school level for two decades I know over the years it had to be troubling to you when you put so much time and effort into developing young players and also to go to a chance to really shine at the varsity level suddenly say coach I have to the side I think of like parents like playing for the development academies a better move up from my personal situation but I really want to play for from my high school and and where the school colors and so on so forth these are agonizing decisions and I might I was sort of thought well Jeez it is like these kids are not doing anything for the ten weeks during the course of the high school season they're actually up playing competing and being coached and and and and playing with her friends I never understood how come the the the federation people to the DA people thought it was so you know losing those ten weeks was crucial and with some help set back these kids and their and their progress yeah and especially where you're from to I'm in Westchester county it's a bit of an of an affluent county and and we're surrounded by a couple academy teams of I believe there's five academy teams within a thirty mile radius of where I am so it's a bit of a static thing too that goes on with academy if you get a lot of players who may not necessarily be in the top one percent may be in the top five ten percent who are kind of lord into playing in this week as it has a lot of status and that creates a little bit of a of a problem as well especially for the players in high school who are left seeing some of their friends go off and play yeah it's it's been a challenge in this county especially I think for a lot of the for a lot of teams because it's a little bit unknown to you don't know whether or not your player's gonna go they have to make the team and what happens when they don't sell it there is a lot of that as far as the as far as the academies are concerned let's let's take some calls or for Matt Allen that's let's go to Roger who's calling this morning from Wisconsin good morning Roger you're on the fan Hey Rick how you doing good how are you all right good so I've been watching what's happening with soccer on the lacrosse guy yeah and the cross trainer was sort of had the camel peak peak in their nose under the tent with the same type of thing of starting you know this uber program of you know putting the bass with the fast all the time we have to do that a hundred percent of the time when I thought your percentage earlier was right one percent of the kids need to be in this program and the ultimate result of this is that hurts high school at hertz multi sport athletes than ever you know I worry that soccer doesn't think multi sports good which you preach on your show and I'm also worried that they're going to wipe out high school sports that they keep going this way so thanks for your opinion on that of multi sport and they're all prices will be in a trouble of that's yeah Roger that's a good question and and and thank you for the call.

"National federation of independent businesses we hear horror stories about the bottlenecks applying for the paycheck protection money that the federal government is releasing what do you recommend for small businesses yeah that's the spot on we're dealing with members are members folks are really challenged at this point it really comes down to the relationship with the with the small business owners banking or credit union lander and that's the portal for the vast majority of these funds there's been a bumpy rollout of of the cares act that's been been tough sledding for the banking and finance professionals will be acknowledge that it's a huge massive program being rolled out to almost real time so the guidance has been slow to show up and and folks have had their struggles with it but are the key for a small business owner would be stay in touch with your lender try to get your application in and there's a there's a pool of relief out there for folks try to pay the bills and that comes down the pay roll mortgage utilities other costs that you might have and that's called staying afloat surviving in in the middle of the perfect storm what we have going on right now with the carers act and the two point two trillion dollars from the federal government how does that integrate with the state in what they're able to do to help small businesses in the Commonwealth well the state I'm in a real jam right now and they did kudos to our state level officials they came forward with the sixty one million dollar loan program but it tapped out to almost immediately so a pretty small bucket but the state has had such a fall off of their tax revenues that I'm not sure that the state itself will be able to do a whole lot of there will be some channeling all of those of that two point two trillion into state government we're not exactly sure how much so there's big questions about the state budget and so you know the state's ability to enhance and itself to be a portal but at this point go to the go to the cares that go to the federal is probably the best solution for business owners small businesses feel half the economy Gordon as you know and then play half the nation's workforce but many were forced to close by state governments Friday was the deadline for that nonessential business so waivers you have to apply for that how many were actually approved you know you know the number I believe is in the five thousand range and we have another five B. we we've been jumping up and down over that issue we need that waiver process to continue and we asked the governor please keep it open you know as this process the crisis my great you know now we have businesses re purposing to produce TV's personal protection equipment where maybe they didn't do that before so you know do they get a waiver so they get an automatic exemption you know how does that work and we need the waivers to help there's a gray area question if you're a critical supply chain company you know and you you supply let's say pilots for a company that produces antiseptics you know are you a central are you not we need to waivers and so we're really calling on the governor to bring back that waiver process would be closed last week and so that's the central but yeah we think about five thousand roughly were approved I know they got over thirty six thousand requests in through the door before that would not door slammed closed so it was important to small business we really would like to see it back again have you heard anything about extending the waiver process I mean it seems to make sense cordon that just continue to review there's no harm in that right absolutely you know we think could reserve one of the the better aspects of the governor put in place we were applauding that and then all the sudden it came to an end we are not sure why in various press conferences he has not answered that question so again a big open question at this point Gordan real quickly how many of your members are going to be able to survive all along shut down yeah that's that the deep question and you know we're we're gonna see shops close there's no doubt about it small business people are are a plucky lot I mean they are really the can do kind of people in our communities they probably tough that out to get the business started and so if there's a group of people I think that will fight tooth and nail to come back it is our small business owners but you know I have not seen a an objective measure or metric on that but count on it we're going to lose some of our our friends and neighbors that have small companies small businesses that said you know we we do hope our policy makers government and certainly all of us will will support the local local business owner and and will see a real revival of real charge back when we get beyond the health aspect of this crisis ratio of independent businesses Gordon Denlinger and joining the KDKA radio morning show

"So that's one area of studies linked to the region and to the rest of the world. Now, he has more berry right is executive director of the university federation university was called university Ballard, why the change a number of reasons, but predominantly because we accord a church or campus off Monash University in Gibbs land, and we felt that given that we were broader than just a university home by stat of Bella read that we needed to look at being a little bit broader in our approach and so- running focus groups looking at what different names would be and we landed on federation university Australia, and I think we're very lucky improve Leauge because not very many organizations can use a fishery the word strike or in the nine. But what the government gave us permission that we could become federation university. Australia news, the astrologer in the total. When did that happen back in twenty twelve thirteen? So we originated in eighteen. Seventy as school of mines and industry. So we one of the oldest technical and further education training organizations in Astrada in non thousand ninety eight we become the university of Belarus and with going fit or in universities for four coming on five years. Well, congratulations and are most interested in the size of the campus. It's quite enormous. What you may nam Bishen at the moment. And my name be sheen is to really service have community. Not only Bella, right? We service the hall of the western region. We've got a campus at Horsham, so it's really being active in their community and making sure that we're relevant and delivering on training that helps the community members and industry. So that people have got secure good employment. And so that strengthens communities. Well, I've seen a number of pictures in your portfolio of windmills, and such like, what are your plans? They're aware of sparring to be Victoria's if not nationally and in southeast Asia, we are looking to become the renewable energy training. Pravada of choice, and we're working towards that. We're fortunate that earlier this year the government recognized that an as giving us some money to build a business plan. So we busily working on the business plan getting it back to government. So that we can take the next step. We think it's big in western region and just ran bellred alone. We've got probably the biggest global wind farms in the nation nearly so there's a new day, but we're also looking beyond wing. This also battery storage solar and another emerging is harder Jen, so we're looking at hair we can become significant and relevant in training for those specific renewable energies, and there's places like the universe in New South Wales solar and well queens as well as doing plenty on that with organic solar as well. And that goes to the university of Melbourne with Andrew Holmes, who's the former president of the Kennedy of science. So are you linking with them? So you don't reinvent the wheel. All the time. Look, we will be and we've got a new. Gene of Sohn's are two in engineering the university, and he's a world renowned researcher in renewable energies, and he brings a lot to the Tiber. We'll be networking and sitting on. So it's not only a training facility for vocational training. It will also take into account masters Barroux searching into the energy and also ph D students. That's the I'm so it'll be a really broad range of offerings through the renewables. So we think that we're we'll plice, but we'll work with other universities to make sure that we're not reinventing the wheel, but we're all collaborating so that we get the best outcome and the best shooters perhaps because many of them will sometimes think are will go off to Melbourne on who knows Sydney, but then even leave town now, we'll let's raw and the other thing is we can actually if we get it wrought, and we're delivering the right sort of outcomes, we will actually get international students wanting to come as well.
