A highlight from Why MetaMask Snaps is a Big Deal with Co-Founder, Dan FinIay
"Hey, Bankless Station. Here I am from Permissionless2 on why Snaps is a big deal. Metamask Snaps just launched at Permissionless, and I think you should know a little bit about it. This is a solo podcast. It's just me. David is off partying at some events, I think, right now. I'm about to join him. But before we do, I want to give you this episode on Metamask Snaps. This is like a browser extension only for your Metamask crypto wallet, and I think it unlocks a lot of potential. We're going to talk about why it's a big deal, what you can do on it today, how you can glow up your Metamask wallet, and we have Dan Finley, who is the co -founder of Metamask. He's been in the space forever as the original Ethereum OG wallet, and to see how Metamask has developed is pretty exciting. You can see the passion for which he has as we go through this episode.

He is the creator of MetaMask, and he's got something special for us today. Dan, how you doing, man? Oh, I'm euphoric. I'm walking on a cloud. And then, of course, I'm excited to get back to work and do even more tomorrow. You know what? You look like you are literally in paradise right now, because the scenery behind you is absolutely phenomenal. So I am, for listeners who can't see the visuals today, I've got this black background, looks very somber. I found this little cloister at the Permissionless Conference to record this, whereas Dan somehow has a microphone outside, and he's got beautiful trees, and shrubbery, and green foliage behind him. How are you managing that? Yeah, well, I just plugged it into the tree, and I knew that I was coming on bankless. You guys are always the best about flexing your green. Like other crypto podcasts, they flex their green, and then you guys flex your green. And so I thought I'd come on and flex mine. Especially my podcast co -host, you will be very proud of this shrubbery behind you, and I'm sure you can name every single plant. But we're not here to talk about plants. We're here to talk about metamask snaps. Okay, what are metamask snaps, Dan? Why are they important? Why are they exciting? Well, they're kind of like plants in your wallet. So you know how... I'm sorry, I did not prepare this metaphor, but let's ride it a little. No, let's go with it. Yes, let's ride it. So you know how your wallet right now, it's kind of just like a set of features you get from the store and you hope the team made what you want. It's like getting a box of processed food at the grocery store. And when it does bad and you have a lot of microplastics in your blood or whatever, there's a lot of fishing, whatever, you're like, well, why don't the devs fix this? And what you might like to do is know your ingredients and kind of curate yourself a little bit more of a home cooked meal, maybe have a friend over and have them help you cook something nice out of your fridge. And snaps are kind of like that. We're taking the wallet experience and we're kind of making it a collaborative development platform. And so there's a lot of parts of the wallet that we've wanted to improve in the past that are really hard to do in a centralized manner, just as a single dev team. There's just like, there are, for example, countless protocols. Like every time somebody writes a new contract, it's arguably a new protocol. And so representing it faithfully to the user is like actually a hard problem. And then there's how to keep a person safe or how to interact with new run times and stuff like that. And I think what we started realizing is the best people to build an interface to a new protocol are the creators of that protocol. And so we created the system that basically lets external developers build kind of plugins for MetaMask and add support for their various gifts and ship them right to our users. So today, for a lot of our existing users, that looks like you can install some transaction safety providers. And now when you're confirming a transaction, you can have additional third parties helping you stay safe. And you're all opting into these, right? Some of them may phone home and you get to decide whether they get to or not. Some of them are doing simulations. And some of them are using AI analysis. Some of them are using on -chain registries and court systems like Clarus. And basically, I think any MetaMask user should install a handful of those today from the groups that if they recognize any and trust any. And then there's a whole bunch of new blockchain protocols that we were able to support now. So there's like supporting like 21 new blockchains or something just as of yesterday. And it's only going to be more as we make it easier to publish to the platform.
WSJ: It Takes a Village, But in California Parents Aren’t Welcome
"And talking about this from the beginning this story out of California the Wall Street Journal it takes takes a village but in California parents aren't welcome to the list of Finley story Alicia it's a story about how in California the Attorney General is suing a school district because the school district wants parents to be notified if their kids have magically discovered there a girl not a boy or a boy not a girl wait why this dude don't listen I what just said the Attorney General in California is suing to make sure that it's the teachers and the parents who get to guide the gender non -conforming child in their words parents the essence of that you need to understand why the is not that they're all pervs and they want to talk to your kids about sex a lot of them are not why they do what they do the tactical communists behind this plan there stood a long time ago that the fear from climate change the fear from critical theory critical race it wasn't really working we got Donald Trump elected they had the Reagan years the bush years where they weren't in charge whether you agreed with those guys or not this isn't working they've tried everything climate change hysteria class hysteria but they they came up with this tactically disgusting idea but they think it's going to pay dividends it's if we can't get them when they're older by scaring them with climate change and class division and critical theory we should get them when they're younger and if we can divorce them from their fuddy -duddy conservative parents and get them to believe that the real source of truth and information are administrators bureaucrats and school and school school personnel if we can pull them away from the destructive effect

"Yeah, Yuri, I've seen him, I got CM pitch, I think, three times total over the last two years, and each time I watched him, I was blown away. I mean, when you walk in, he's 19 years old. He doesn't turn 20 until I think April 15th, I believe it's his birthday. And he was solid and double-A last year. He's 6 8, 220 pounds, one of the few guys who I've seen who when standing next to saint Alcantara makes sandy Alcantara looks small. And he has a similar repertoire to sandy. He has fastball hits the upper 90s. He has a change up that I believe I saw once the sky reports yeah, I believe it was like a 50 or 60% swing in this right with the change up last year pitching all the entire season in double-A. He has a slider that he's working on that he's trying to tighten up a little bit and he has a curveball and he has a curve ball that's been a good breaking pitch for him as well. So he has a four pitch mix. He's not even 20 years old yet and he's looking like he'll get to the big league at some point this year. He wants to be in the big leagues for opening day. I just with the way that they're with the options they have in terms of their starting pitching, I don't see that happening, but I feel like at some point down the road this season we're going to see Yuri Perez make his debut. And yeah, he's from the way the way I best like describing sandy Alcantara when I talked with him the other day and asked him what it's like watching Yuri a 19. Sandy goes, I was nowhere near this level when I was 19. I was in high a, I was a decent prospect. I was throwing hard, but I wasn't throwing like that. I wasn't throwing the way that he's doing it. I wasn't as mature with understanding my pitch mix and what I need to do with which batters at which time as Yuri is now. And then now with Yuri basically being understanding and saying to take him under his weighing, you're seeing the dynamic of Yuri now understanding what he has to do between starts to be ready and be more mature on that front to be ready to go when his name is called. So to wrap up, what would constitute a successful season for the Marlins in 2023 at the peak league level and beyond? I would say for 2023 and it's going back to what they've been trying to say every year and they've been unsuccessful either they need to be competitive. I don't necessarily think they need to make the playoffs this year. I feel like they need to be in the hunt because I mean you look at this the division. They could get 85 wins have their first winning record in a full season and goodness knows how long and still finished fourth because of just how stack the mets, the Phillies and the braves are. But if they're able to be in that 500 cups cost hopefully above it and say, look, we're here and with the way the roster set up basically every main guy they have, whether it's guys who they have been working with for years or guys they acquired this off season. Basically all of their main guys are under control beyond this year. So if they're able to show what they're able to do this year and be in the fight and then continue the build on the group that they've already assembled, that basically gives them that stepping stone that they were hoping to have earlier in the brute Sherman ownership era and finally show the optimism whether it happens that's obviously still to be determined, whether jazz worked on center helps and that helps them, that's to be determined, but they have the pieces there. If a few things, if a few dominoes fall in their direction, they have the potential to finally start turning the corner. It's just a matter of turning that potential into the actual results. Well, you can find out whether they succeed in doing that by following Jordan's coverage all season long at the Miami Herald. You can also find George McPherson on Twitter at J McPherson 1126. Jordan, thanks again. Thanks so much, Ben. Thanks so much, Meg, always great chatting with you both. All right, I'm going to give you a pass blast here. It's just me. We recorded early this week, so we didn't yet have the past blast from our past past consultant when I was recording with Meg. This past blast comes from 1971 and from David Lewis and architectural historian and baseball researcher based in Boston and we're back to the late eccentric X a's owner Charlie Finley. This time, David writes, Finley is arguing balls and strikes. He's moved on from gold bases at this point. In 1971, Charlie Finley once again brought a proposed rule change to Major League Baseball on March 16th, 1971, Finley's Oakland a's played Cleveland in a spring training game featuring the experimental rule, a count with three balls and three strikes. The plan clearly did not go well as a UPI article reporting on the story ran with the headline, baseball's experiment doomed for oblivion, Finley hoped that the new count would speed the game up, but in practice the rule had the exact opposite effect, leading to an increased number of walks in what was referred to as tedious games of pitch and catch. During the trial run, the two teams produced 23 total walks in a game one ten to 7 by Cleveland as another failed attempt at baseball's long history of trying to speed up the game thinly abandoned this idea shortly thereafter. We get this sort of question or suggestion sometimes too, just changing the number of balls or strikes. And there might be better ways you could do it. But I prefer to try to fix things within the current system of four balls and three strikes in finlay, of course, supported a pitch clock too, so he was ahead of his time in trying to speed things along. Also, I have a second pass blast for you here. This is one I came up with and really I probably should have done it in episode 1970, but it's still applies to 1971. One of the members of our Facebook group recently posted a thread and said the MLB logo before the 1969 batter logo that is still in use today.

Gasoline's bumpy right down will bring with it all kinds of disruptions and complications. Mark Finley is a fellow in energy and global oil at rice university's baker institute for public policy is with me now from Houston to tell us what we're in for. Mark, thanks so much for being here. Thanks for having me, Wes. We've been talking about how gasoline dependence is just starting to look like it's ticking downward in the U.S. and yet we are still really dependent on it. You study this all the time. Can you kind of give us a broader picture of what it means that our dependence on gasoline is like slowly loosening its grip. It's slowly losing its grip, but it's likely to be a bumpy road and I think that the experience of the last year shows us that even as we push for a rapid transition away from fossil fuels, we need to make sure that the current system continues to function because we need in the meanwhile for our economic and our national security to have an energy system that is functional and provides affordable, secure, reliable energy, throughout the transition. While in reality, there's not a lot that any president can do to affect short term gasoline prices. It's screamed at you from every street corner in foot high numbers. And so it becomes a kind of a general indicator of how the world is going. And so I think we economists, if we crunch the numbers, gasoline doesn't look like it's that big of a deal.

The Inspiring Story of Margaret E. Knight
"So margaret louise night. She was a prolific american inventor of machines and mechanisms for a variety of industrial everyday purposes. Margaret was nicknamed maddie mit. She lived with her widowed mother and older brothers. Charlie and jim in a little house in york maine. she was born in eighteen. Thirty eight by the way so after her father passed away mattie had inherited his toolbox and she liked to think of things that could be made with these tools and she drew them in a little notebook that she labeled my inventions. Mattie demonstrated knack for tools and mentioned from an early age making toys kites sleds and household items in as little girl. She preferred to play with woodworking tools. Instead of dolls saying that quote the only thing she wanted whereas a jack knife gimblett and pieces of wood. She knew she wanted good for her so when she was eleven. Maddie's finley moved to manchester new hampshire to work in the textile mills there and so matty was going to continue going to school only going so far as a complete her elementary school education and she got to know the head engineer there while wandering around the grounds after school waiting for her family to be done with their like fourteen to eighteen hour shifts. Sure textile mills. Yeah including like her twelve year old brother and fourteen so at age twelve. She started working the mill herself and aloom ow function and injured a worker So it turns out that one of the leading causes of serious injuries at the mill that she had observed was the propensity of the steel-tipped flying shuttles so those were manipulated by workers to unite the left in the warp threads in their weaves. I'm so these shuttles would come free of their looms and they would like shoot off the machines high-velocity even at like the slightest employee error. So like there were people dying from this. There are people like you know basically like you're getting almost shot. Yeah basically tipped metal thing like flying off a machine you know so it was really dangerous and so matty what she did. She created a guard. That would stop the shuttle from coming off of the machine if it malfunctioned. So like the exact details of this device have kind of been lost to history but mentions of it came out throughout published stories of her work and her Mentions articles that will get into so again because this was the mid nineteenth century. And why would anybody document what they actually did anyway. So workman who installed these types of guards all the looms and all the males in manchester. So this sounds like a big deal. She clearly didn't make any money for sure. You know maybe save some lives so after she turned eighteen. Mattie left manchester for better opportunities She worked in several different factories on new england along with other short-term technical jobs too so that she could keep

It will continue to accelerate because you to thank at go to saratoga as an individual owner and to end to compete and to fight in the auction ring a against the groups because they're probably three or four groups partnerships that are public that are bringing in individual owners. So all of a sudden. You look around and you're you're going to see clips and you're going to see the avengers. There are some horses that all three of us have tried to buy so. I think it's exciting. I think it's very good for the partnerships because we have a chance to compete with the best sources or the best prospects. I should say it takes time for them to get to the point where the best sources but. I just think it's a train. That's gonna continue. And i think it's been a result of all the activity in all the work that partnerships of put into the business. I think we'll talk about some of the other other things that are going on in their industry but i think i think across the board partnerships are gonna get stronger and stronger as a whole in tehran on another in another interview. I i heard you say that when the hammer went down on on this horse on first cabinet a million and a half you were so excited and you didn't have any buyer's remorse after you signing that ticket and walking back and looking at the horse which which i found really fascinating because you know like you lunatic you spend more than forty five thousand dollars on an animal and you got to be scratching head saying what am i doing. But for you'd have that confidence that a million half walk us through. Was it just the horses presence or was it that. He's you know so royal bred in from one of the top families in in american racing or that you knew you had other partners like the mango narrows and other people behind you in that gave you what what was the to go to a million and a half on the source so i think any number of things die while the call was raised at stone farm and bobby flay and his breeding program that his bill and he's starting to explode. I talked to him the other day. You know you're so excited. The fact that we looked at first to june generations of this call and their bobby flay generations and bobby flay team so all of a sudden you start to look at you got bobby flay. You got stone farm. I took the mango Took the mango narrows to dinner. The night of the sale and so we got up after dinner and we walked over to the stone farm consignment right there near the the restaurant and the first thing that they said is we'll take twenty five percent you know. I think he had taken three steps out of his stall. He was a horse that that really captured your your dreams and all the imagination that we all have we buy horses and we think the first thing you think about when you give any kind of money for horses you say i could this be the one and i tell you i think more so than any worse we've ever bought yo that kept coming back to be. Could this be the one and then before you know it. I had a couple of other people that expressed interest in after the sale. I talked to bobby flay any stadium for next trunk so all those things give me confidence. And they gave me consummate That night and i think. I think the next morning by ten eleven o'clock the horse was fully syndicated so i might have said on that. Podcast there are a lot of times where i think we bought four or five horses for over a million dollars in every one of them. I i don't know. I think it took two or three days. And you so you compare and contrast that to their other horses we we spend three or four hundred on and it takes a couple of weeks to get him syndicate. And so. I don't know there's something there's a sizzle and there's an attraction especially the sale toppers that You know obviously the sellers in consigners and the sales companies all take advantage of. But i think it was the start of a very big dream that we all all coalesce behind this cult and you know so far so good and i think you're being a little modest too because years ago when you bought an expensive course it was harder to syndicate. But now you've had the you know. You've had you jackson traveler and obey ceos and always dreaming you. Have you have a resume yourself a pedigree yourself. The fall back on that makes people want to be a part of this. Do you think that that's part of because i know you like we turned to. You said we'll maybe by a third in the next morning. You're like i need to buy half because we're oversubscribed. Yes yeah so you know one of the things. I think we all know. When we're we're in this game right is you gotta stay humble. And you don't stay humble the game i definitely will humbly and you know i've always telling myself mean we've spent a good bit of money. We've invested a good bit of money for partners and for outside partners in inside partners over the last ten years because we've got rolling and i i don't know i like to have done better with the horses that we bothered there. Were there were plenty of course that we thought that we have high hopes for that for one reason. Another didn't work out. And i don't downplay that you know what i take. I take responsibility for that. I'm the captain of the ship. And i stand up and you don't win the good times they occur. I want to be part of it. But he'll when thing or the wheels fall off you know. I'm i take responsibility as well so i just think back at you know. I look at the humble side of things. And i think you you really do have to stay humble because as soon as you start to think that you have the secret sauce or the you're smarter than everybody else in the business you. You really have a problem right because nobody is smarter than every everybody's trying everybody's got a lot of the same data. I think a lot of cases it just comes down to the forces i e the money that you have behind me. And you know we've been encouraged. I'd say blessed you have people that get behind us and that gives us the confidence To buy horses but you know we have to show up every day in that. I know that's trite. But it's it's a game where everybody's trying to get the first captains of the world in everybody's trying to get these good horses so it's tough but i think that's what attracts us. The nets keeps us. You'll go into the sales every day open at. Ah every day. I give a plug. Which is what i do. I think a lot of us do and so it's it's just a wonderful way to spend your life. I know we all love the worst business but man this is when things start to fall into place as they seem to be doing now at yo you really appreciate the fact that there are a lot of people that are involved in those alana. Lock in you just have to relish. I think one of the places where there's the most optimism is saratoga saratoga in del mar with a two year old season. You know it's hard not to feel good and optimistic about racing when when you've got those. Those two boutique needs going on. And i noticed we talked to you last one there will be a spring sale. You guys were very active there. You've been especially active this year at the two year old sales so now we had. That's a couple of months in the rear view now. Presumably after track getting ready to run what do you think about the about your crop. A two year olds this year. Have you been able to bring on new partners that you haven't had before with.

"Couple years ago with chuck winner beating involved with horses with baffert while they were adjudicating. The bob baffert now justify positive that. Yeah that's that's i think. One of the one of the unsung problems in racing is owners. Who either us or our close with trainers that they probably know are doing the wrong. Things were also in Positions of regulatory power. And i don't know how you. I don't know how you stop that because you know at the end of the day you need people with insider knowledge in racing or able to regulate this sport but it creates a very messy situation. Sometimes where owners want to win races so they get guys who've been the roles within they are also in positions of power. And you know. I think only naturally can fall asleep on the job in that way. But that's crazy story about ellis. I kind of bury the lead there. Wow jones whatever happened to us and the first time it happened the marcus into the business even longer than we have it. Yeah i never heard something like that before again.

Well in do a great job. So i'll i'll drive that plug in for the grades all right so you don't get the free our then you're three hour now. I feel like terry should jacket like you. Know how the snl five-timers jacket on the host time. We need like a third timers. Holo or something pretender. I think it was on nine months ago or so. I think a lot has happened. I don't think very many things have happened in in the horse business. I'm not sure have a whole lot to talk about in the middle of july while yet. I mean we're waiting for saratoga. But we certainly have a horse to talk about of interest for you guys. I captain won the dwyer stakes on monday to remain undefeated now three for three. He's an interesting horse. If you watch the show we had. We had a little back and forth about it if he's got a lot a lot of talent but we've he's got a little bit forward to move as well. What are your thoughts of him. So far his development for these restarts. Yeah so i. I think the same i think the same thing. You always probably going to have to take another step forward. But i i. Do you know a position in all the parties are in a position. At least were in a spot at in the middle of his through your year to take a step forward so i i guess that's a lot better than being in a spot. We have four or five levels to jump. But i think he's right on the cost been Obviously so far you always three for three. And he hasn't done a whole lot long and he's been brought along by pretty good trainer in in the legs of a showing the gay he and his team. So works cited the thought of going to saratoga. We've never gone to saratoga with a yield of the prospect of getting to the traveler. So that in and of itself is really really exciting for all the partners in for the west point team everybody associated with us. Terry thanks for joining us. And it's interesting when you talk about. I kept run. Thinking store raises is. This was a very pricey worse at the sales. You also have flight line out in the west coast a huge prospect very pricey and. It's not just you guys. It's starlight eclipse storebrand's over the last two or three years the syndicate seemed to just be going at a really really up their game whereas maybe five six years ago. You might have been in one hundred two hundred thousand dollars yearling. Now you know. You're out there bidding with john rain for the seven figure horses and you know what is it about the the world of syndicates that now you guys have gone from big owners to you..

"Which trading mind control with the idea of using his long lost speed. Is you remember back in the day when he won the hopeful as a two year old. You went wire-to-wire and he had speed once upon a time. And then i think just over time he maybe got a little bit less interested early in the race and became kind of a one run closer tight and this was not the spot to the a one run closer with forensic fire looming is. The only speed is a huge favourite at thought. It was brilliant. Ride as usual by john velazquez because my control got was a little half step slow out of the game and he sent ham used his speed he got throwing was able to press friends. Fire from the jump. Know stupid are pretty damn good show. I thought the stretch the mind control. Just surging pass runs. They fire late Prevail got ninety nine by aries. Very admirable orzubek shows up every time they both are forensic fire to in other words. Who shows us. Every time i got a tunnel wins especially at belmont. But i thought that that that riot by john velazquez Difference because he gets pinch back in the loop the field and try to run down a firewood. He got an easier lead. If alaska's wasn't aggressive than he hasn't no chance in the race. I think about that was terrific. Ri- johnny b. And i thought pretty good training job by type much due to get that speed of him again In the in the dwyer first captain ran pretty well as an odd on favourite around. Talk to terry finley a little bit later about him in some other stuff. He's an interesting. Because i feel like he. I said this before but he he just takes a little bit of a while to get going to where i think he's going to be much better going to turns than he is at one. Turn if you watch all three of his races you know. He in his first race Beaten at the ball came flying late to just get up eating muhammed. Who's wind up being a pretty nice horse in the sloppy mile race. That he had next out you know looked like he was a little bit. Midstretch came back along the inside and ended up taking away in the end and the same thing on sunday or monday. Dwyer us look like he was idling. Turn a little dicey there for two to five favorite way came alive in a stretch and he. Just he really accelerates that final furlough. So i really can't wait to see him. Go to turns guessing the gym. Daniel be mixed with him. Showed me into hinted at that. Followed by the travers goof. Oh was back in the on the winning side in the rank story a stakes So that was that was the main action at belmont and then over the weekend. We also had some races at la. Salle that were were relevant. Not only because they were great steaks. But because of the trainer the wear baffert when both races at lowe's al won the los alamos derby with classier one to in that race to fund. It was a close second and then he won the great lady m steaks with camin who romped showing ninety eight buyer. I wonder if she's the same horse as a four-year-old as she was last year. She wasn't that great in a democracy this that either humana Whatever that race is called now that one race for fillies and mares on the derby undercard i she doesn't she had a wild me so much this year as she has last year but also what she didn't do for the rest of the summer. You know this is. This is going to be an ongoing topic. But bob baffert. Who was kind of seemed like a fugitive right now in terms of where he can run sources you know. He's very is contained. I think in confined right now to california because you know the just del mar a great meat but other than the pacific classic aren't a ton of top level rate. One races four horses. Like the mean you know. The rancho bernardo is the only branded stake for affiliates. Mayors over there. He could run her against ways in the pat. O'brien but i'm curious what you guys think about this. You know inflex situation that bob baffert find himself in where he's usually cleaning these horses to saratoga to raid in and get those one wins and he did do that right now. What do you think is is coming next for him in it. Mean in those horses outlaw. Really seeing this effect baffert anomaly. From what you just mentioned joe but you know. Think of the horses. We know that have been taken away from him. Most of whom are horses. That are likely to run up. The saratoga me Starting with kind of one at a time Tough guy please. Save good means not the same this year. She's free for three undefeated. That has a great one win You know what to make of this. She's paste two to five in a race where she'd have to fall down six times. Lose and eh right. it's fascinating now because Unless the owner michael peterson transferred to another trainer which he has given no indication that he's going to her options are really limited because the ballerina is the no brainer next starred for her one term grade one at saratoga so with that possibility taken away from him maybe she does show up in that race at del. Mar that you mentioned but you know she's good for something like that. She belongs in the ballerina so far. Bathroom running one. Two in the los alameda derby again you would say. What would those two horses perhaps be pointed now for the The traverse or something like that. Maybe but i can't get the least bit excited over classier. He ran in eighty nine buyer and his start before this race which really came up light. He's third by twelve and a half lengths in the affirm steak so Yeah i don't get excited about him at all. But you know the baffert is an ongoing story. And you're right. He's kind of a little bit in like he's like somebody on parole right now. You know he can only half go throughout his is normal routine and getting away from the subject a little bit. I agree a hundred percent. What you said about a first cap that nice horse but boy talk about a horse. That doesn't take your breath where he's just grinder now. There's nothing wrong with that. And i do think he will be better when he goes longer. Which presumably be at saratoga. Next time out but You know we had to run down. Ride in biden was eleven twelve to one shot in got very easy trip. But you would talk about. Somebody's out there. That are electrifying. He's whatever these es these exact opposite. He's just working like grinder. Got ninety buyer figur-. I believe but running about mcgahey is his. Horses are not gonna run. They're showing the gay sources are not gonna run their best race in their third. Fourth lifetime starts. They're gonna run their best races. In their ninth and tenth lifetime starts so the he onward and upward with 'em. We'll see what he does Coming out but he's got a little bit waterproof no doubt about it. You guys are tough freaking audience. Don't really good. That could mean one. You say that. I camp that is first. Captain is a grinder and and you know it was a yawn kind of win. If you guys own these frigging animals you'd be like oh my god. You'd be making t-shirts you'd be selling buying ads on on the website and and trying to campaign for them to be you know rising stars. For god's sake you gotta gotta accept and embrace when you have a nice horse like a mean. And i know i've been on her bandwagon for almost from the beginning you know. She's eight of nine. The only blemish on her record was when she got dietsch. You'd going a mile. Eight in the kentucky oaks and oh by the way all she lost to was she. There's a devil in swiss skydiver who ended up being like two of the top three horses in the in the for the category and she was running away above her weight in the sense of going. Nine furlongs versus. You know six or seven furlongs at is in her. Sweet spot She won by ten lance than a handwrite. Gha means it was to fits of a second off the track record. You gotta give me this. I mean she is an awesome awesome horse now look if she was trained by anybody else. I think we'd be. We'd be campaigning for her. To be championed spreads are the phillies Champion sprinter and And and basically couldn't wait for her and see see for example the battle in the breeders cup in affiliate mayor sprint. i think that that we have the pump. The brakes a little bit on on how you know just how negative we are on some of these sources Because she she's going to be a hall of famer. I mean you know short of short of you know saying. I'm not going to vote for a.

"You know what, this is the place I want to go play football. So he clearly believes, he has an opportunity in a chance to play based on something. I would assume he was told in some kind of recruiting pitch. And by the way, I really, really love the messaging that TJ Finley is put out to the world ever since his announcement that he's going to Auburn came out. Is he's been very very respectful and also clear that he is going to fight hard and compete and try to get on the field and try to beat out the established quarterback. Their bonuses, like hey, bring it down. I want a competition and it's going to be really fun and established quarterback. The guy who I mean from the outside looking in, I don't follow Auburn that closely, but I thought, I thought Bo Nix leader, that football team, been there awhile, the established guy. And so to see Bo Nix compete with a younger, I think more talented player with more upside is very, very interesting and exciting. Now I will say the real loser and all of this has got to be LS. They're losing a really talented quarterback. Probably their most just naturally. Gifted quarterback was TJ Finley. He's from Louisiana and I don't understand why sucking LSU did not appear to want to build around TJ Finley. You know, they have Max Johnson and Myles. Brennan, people think Myles Brennan is going to start, but maybe Max Johnson and palm both of them ago. Like they're neither as talented as TJ Finley. And if you're a bad football team, that's not going to win a lot. Anyway, why don't you build around the young guy who's got more potential? And you can have more years with like tie should not go to the senior tie, should go to the guy whose younger who you have, more time to grow and develop and work with. So, I think that from home, I think it's confusing stuff going on at LSU. I'm like, I don't understand why TJ Finley wasn't embraced more, but Auburn's only going to get better mean. Auburn the quarterback position in competition. The quarterback competition is only going to help the University of Auburn football team, get better. We're either it's going to push their current starting quarterback bone next to get even better and grow as a player and I become you know, what Auburn really needs at quarterback. Or TJ, Finley's going to become the man and take them. Hopefully a step forward as a football program. So It's a win-win for Auburn. I'm really excited. I think it's maybe the most interesting quarterback battle in college football right now is, you know, TJ Finley versus Bo Nix. And TJ fishing is not afraid. I love that attitude to be totally fine, and comfortable to say, I'm going in, I'm going, if I hard, I'm going to try to take your job, May the best man win and a healthy competition is good for everybody. Especially a team like Auburn who I think could use better quarterback play. Now news item number to another story that I went. Oh man, I love, I.

Rage, Rage Against the Dying of Moore's Law
"The tech industry is continuing to rage rage against the dying of moore's law. Ibm says it has created the first ever to nanometer chip which ibm says could improve performance by forty five percent at the same power or five percent energy at the same performance compared to seven nanometer. Chips quoting mantech. Every decade is the decade that test. The limits of moore's law and this decade is no different with the arrival of extreme ultraviolet or e uv technology the intricacies of multi pattering techniques developed. On previous technology nodes can now be applied with the finer resolution that e uv provides that along with other more technical improvements can lead to a decrease in transistor size and ebeling the future of semiconductors to that end today ibm is announcing it is created the world's first two nanometer node chip just to clarify here while the process node is being called to nanometer. Nothing about the transistor dimensions resembles a traditional expectation of wet. Two nanometers might be in the past. The dimension used to be an equivalent metric for two d. feature size on the chip such as ninety nanometer sixty five nanometer and forty nanometer however with the advent of three d. transistor design with thin sets and others. The process node name is now an interpretation of an equivalent to transistor design some of the features on the ship are likely to be low single digits in actual nanometers such as transistor finley protection layers. But it's important to note the disconnect in how process nodes are currently named often the argument pivots to transistor density as a more accurate metric. And this is something that ibm is sharing with us. Today's announcement states that ibm's two nanometer development will improve performance by forty five percent at the same power or seventy five percent energy at the same performance compared to modern seven nanometer processors ibm is keen to point out that it was the first research institution to demonstrate seven nanometers. Back in two thousand fifteen and five nanometers in two thousand seventeen the latter of which upgraded from sin sets to nanno sheet technologies that allow for a greater customization of the voltage characteristics of individual transistors. Ibm states that. The technology can fit fifty billion transistors onto a chip. The size of a fingernail reached out to ibm to ask for clarification on what the size of a fingernail was given that internally we were coming up with numbers from fifty square millimeters two hundred fifty square millimetres. Ibm's press relations stated that the fingernail in this context is one hundred and fifty square millimeters. That puts ibm's transistor density at three hundred and thirty three million transistors per square

Yeah yeah yeah yeah. There was a very beautiful moment with him. And anthony hopkins. Brad pitt was death incarcerated. Wanted he wanted to experience. Something of this earth right takes on this body of this handsome young boy who got choked and he goes and he meets. Anthony hopkins very sane grounded. industrialist and he says i've come for you and hopkins says won't hit look. I'm not ready to go. Can i have a long story. Short death lives with hopkins and falls in love with his daughter and becomes. You can almost see him getting kind of wrapped into life here. Things whatever reason death doesn't seem to feel and the end when he finally walking hopkins offstage to whatever the next stages of his life they turn around. Because there's a huge party and hopkins is ready to go and brad pitt playing death. He's turned around and he doesn't want to go. Yeah i guess in hopkins says this very beautiful thing says it's kinda hard to leave it behind. Isn't it see that's why we are hungry for experience. Not understanding that the truly experience is not one that affirms us but that reveals us we go through these iterations of constantly seeking the affirmation or the confirmation of whatever the content is that ego at that point in time so that it can be validated in feeling like itself to be separate and solid and real and even divine. God help us so that consciousness has to go through whatever it has to go through until it begins to see how ultimately empty is the fulfilment of an experience that it has designed for itself right. So that only is that we were weaned off of that love of self renowned off of that idea of completing myself through my next plan. My next ambition. The pleasure whatever it might be because eventually time brings us back to this place where we see again. There is a hole in my soul. I keep trying to fill it but it's a bottomless bucket. And the reason the bucket is bottomless is because it belongs to a consciousness. That doesn't understand it doesn't need to create fulfillment. for itself it is the essence of freedom and fulfillment. That's why it takes a long a long.

"Is your favorite coast coach. Jeffrey and i have another amazing guest tonight by good friend. Rhonda fiddly roger. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me the so run. Tell listening audience a little bit budget of all right. I have been in education for about sixteen years. I taught fourth grade for eight of those years. Seven in four benign st. I got my master's degree from hbu in educational counseling. And at that time right. When i was getting ready to graduate i transitioned from the classroom into being a digital learning specialists. I was in that role for about four years as supported about five campuses with their technology. Petey coming into the classroom helping them to integrate technology with their students for the last four years. Have been an instructional coach at a verizon innovative learning school and was instrumental in writing a proposal to have one of our space transformed into a barisal innovative warning lab. It's really beautiful. It's a pleasure to come to work every day and maybe a nutshell as was certainly everybody about your successes in your career. You fail to mention that you came into my classroom probably about seven years ago. Now and i saw teaching my students on how to use technology integration specialist. And i said to you excuse. You know you'll had jobs like that. I actually remember the story a little differently. I remember observing with your students now. First of all your content knowledge of aquatic science. Genetics blew my mind there. And in fact that you're a nel teacher great classroom no offense to the mail. They're great classroom management. You're integrating this technology into your classroom. I was just blown away. I remember saying to you when you're gonna come to be part of our department because we need somebody like with us and then yes he said. Oh i didn't know you guys you know and i remember going back and speaking with my coordinator in renton and raving about what i seen in your classroom. I was like we gotta gotta get this guy. He has to be a part of our tribe. We need have remembered in that way. I've always known you as a mentor. You are an unofficial mentor for me. So as an instructional coach. How has this pandemic change your role as an instructional coach honestly. I've always been flexible but this has really tested my ability flexible when we first guests hunkered down the pandemic i would literally be on. I believe using soon. Initially then we started using microsoft teams would be online helping teachers assisting them till nine or ten o'clock at night because we're in triage mode. Even though our campus campuses been a one to one environment for the last four years it was still new for those who are resistant to change those. Who just said okay. You can put your hats underneath their desk and we're just gonna use a pencil and so really checking in on people more because people have been affected in more ways than one with the pandemic so not just assuming because we hadn't heard from anybody that they were being negligent but they actually were taking care of their households in your families and so just really checking in with our people a little bit more to build a more nurturing during that time seems like a long time ago but it was really just last year round. You're one of the most innovative instructional coaches than i know. What motivates you to be as innovative as you are honestly. It's the students when i was in the classroom. I only had three desktop computers. And that i had my own desktop computer so my soon as new they were going to rotate use. Computers started to bring my laptop so they have an extra computer had a smart horford so they would actually go into the smart exchange and create lessons. Each other in these were fourth graders and so it wasn't always comfortable with technology. I remember using rewrite thing. Works had no idea how to help. The kids say they're projects in figured it out and we save our projects. We actually have to go back into read write data or and then open it up once we say it on the computer so we made leaps and bounds since then they were always there. Okay miss finley. I have pictures over here in. He's typing over there. How are we going to merge together. Google was already doing that. Google was already there weren't had collaborative doxa collaborative slides. But they wanted it soon as now me being in the middle school environment because element was background on the soon as come in find me. They know that my office is located in the library amiss. Finley you know what you help my math teacher. I really need you to see about this. Social studies teacher or whatever it is so the kids are the ones who are just like help. We need your help in his classroom. Please they want to do more. And they don't want to be in a sit and get type of environments are lecture type environment personally had a problem with lecture. I know there's times you have to do. Is you have to do. But you have done some amazing dane in before the pandemic come into my classroom supported. My students are when you were his specialist. And i know you were elementary in town. High school afraid. I really don't know why sent you to my classroom. But i think lisa mcmillan for doing it from stacey out probably would still be in the classroom but before the pandemic hit. What was your biggest accomplishment. Does four i honestly. I think you would have found your way out of a classroom with or without us. We were just one pass for you. And i think it worked out you would have found another. I mentioned it in my introduction at verizon innovative learn school and so when we were learning winding each other support each other and so little. Did i now. That support would go away day and that will be the one lone ranger on my campus. So honestly we had already done a google chromebook distrbution at a very small level. And little did. I know that was preparing me for an ipad distribution for one thousand students on campus in that i would be overseen that in addition to helping with broadcasting because broadcasting was being done on the old school intercom and so i had to dust off the broadcasting equipment in teach students teachers how to use that equipment and and then i was presented by director with an opportunity to have a verizon innovative learning lab on our campus and so it is great collaboration between arizona state university heart of america. They actually go around. The united states. Transforming classrooms into amazing spaces and verizon and israel promise actually have a virtual i guess video of the space on google street view or you can actually see it or i can share it with you so i think that's been the greatest accomplishment so no that they would say. Hey we liked what you had to say in this proposal and we've come out to visit your campus and we know that your kids are utilizing us the bison fullest because we can look at near albums and see the work they have been doing so we wanna give you a one hundred fifty thousand dollars to transform this space and we are going to quit with oculus. Go headsets and three d. Printers and three sixty cameras. There's a laundry list of things is just like any technology professional student drain. This is a beautiful workspace on my saying that when people come to my campus. Say come in visit our verizon innovative learning labs so i would like to see it sustain ten years from now. I'm going to charge a little bit more getting on the job learning how to be an elementary digital learning specialist with something very new to me even if it wasn't for the great team were there yet in that department those are some of the.

Cuba is working on a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine program
"Cuba. The Communist run Caribbean island is soon to launch the third phase of clinical trials on its own Corona virus vaccine produced by government scientists. Government hopes the vaccine will not only end Cuba's cove in 19 crisis but become an important source of revenue for the cash strapped nation. Austria. Cuba had largely contained the outbreak. But after the country reopened to tourism, the number of daily infections and Corona virus related deaths rose to its highest point. So far from Havana will grant reports Some of the equipment Havana's Finley Institute, maybe a little outdated, but the science itself is cutting edge. This hundreds of vials passed through a sorting machine. They're part of Cuba's greatest hope for a solution to its Corona virus crisis. So but on a DOS Cuba's domestically produced cove in 19 vaccine made entirely in Cuba by Cuban researchers, so banana dos is a conjugal vaccine, meaning and androgynous fused to a carrier molecule to bolster the vaccine, stability and effectiveness. The island has much experience in this field. Having developed the meningitis B vaccine in the late 19 eighties with the same approach. Certainly the Communist run government his confidence so, but Anna dos is. The solution is already in phase two clinical trials and they aimed to vaccinate everyone on the island by the end of the year. In fact, says the director of the Finley Institute doctor, they sent their various Bencomo. There are ambitious plans to export it to the rest of Latin America commercial for what we're trying to have. In the order of $100 million during 2021. And totally will dedicate report of part of these doses to the full immunization of the country. That to happen, it will need the help of other nations. Doctor very says it's too early in the relationship with the Biden administration for the US to play a role just yet. Our make Europe Canada, So we have people participating in our drama from Italy and France. Fortunately, not today with the U. S. We hope that in the next fishery will be possible. We moved to a next step off rotation collaboration. And after, and Vasa pride, Barcelona Open son I don't know what for many Cubans, the vaccine can't come soon enough. The outbreak in Cuba was largely contained by the middle of last year after the government imposed strict measures from a curfew in Havana to daughter door health checks and an aggressive track and trace program. Anyone merely showing symptoms was placed into state run quarantine centers as well as anyone returning from abroad. Almost all flights were halted and tourism, the lifeblood of the island's economy, ground to a halt. However, eventually the economic picture became so bleak the government had to re open. Now visitors must take an obligatory PCR test at the airport and least in theory remain in home Quarantine for a day's Since the re opening, though the transmission figures in Corona virus related deaths in Cuba have crept up to their worst point since the pandemic began, one of the other girl, all those rebel in the government's daily televised updates, the covert 19 statistics have steadily risen to more than 1000 cases a day tiny in comparison to some nations like Mexico, Brazil or the U. S. It's still more than is comfortable for Cuba's overstretched health service has the island simply can't afford to buy millions of doses of an internationally produced vaccine, even from allies like Russia or China? The pressure is on the scientists working on sobered Anna dos. As Cuba's economic slump worsens. There are long queues outside most stores as people search for scarce basic goods. The recent coronavirus spike prompted the government to close down the tourism sector. Once again without millions of free spending visitors in the hotels, bars and restaurants, Cuba is hurting economically more now than at any other time since the end of the Cold War. So Madonna means sovereignty in Spanish and the government hopes the vaccine bearing that name will not only alleviate the island's health crisis, but its economic one,

Google is facing the biggest antitrust case in a generation
"The Justice Department announced that they filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, accusing them of monopolizing the online search and search advertising markets. It's no secret that Google is a major player in these areas. The Justice Department is alleging that about 80% of American search queries go through Google. Also, it's chrome browser controls about 70% of the global online browser market. 85% of smartphones globally run its Android operating system. This is just a first step in what could be a lengthy and messy court battle for moron with the DOJ is alleging, and what it could mean for consumers will speak to Kyle Daily Technology editor at Axios, this pretty indisputable stuff, right? I mean, when you think of search you think of Google. I mean, there is myself being there's some other alternatives, but you know they're pretty. Finley used. The DOJ points out in the suit that Google controls about 88% of what it called General search, which is, you know In the open Web, searching Google maps searching for general information That's not like, Hey, I'm on Amazon and I want to search this closed platform specific product. And the challenge with bringing antitrust cases against the big tech companies. Is that a lot of them like Google, now free to use there isn't really clear, clean, observable consumer harm where it's like prices went up. Because of your monopoly. That's bad. We're gonna crack down on you. You know there are no prices for the consumer, so they have to sort of do two things here. One is define a market that's being monopolized which can be kind of challenging itself. So you know what you first have to do is establish. Okay, Here's something where Google Clearly has the monopoly and that is, as you say, online search and then be causing harm. So what DOJ is saying the harm is is really to competition, or sort of would be competition that Google has used its position and that it uses agreements that it makes With Apple with wireless carriers with Samsung and other companies that actually makes phones at one android toe lock it in as the default search engine on your smarts on are sort of core your carrier around your Web browser, and then it uses that to achieve this market dominance and shore up its market dominance, And then that sort of this self fueling thing, where the more ubiquitous Google is, the better it's product become. Is because it can feed the engine with more data, and it just sort of breaks away from the competition is definitely there. You know, you think of things like Kleenex or Xerox. You know those air the brand names or whatever the things that they kind of represent, now, you don't Here. Somebody said, Hey, go being that people say go Google that I mean, it's a product that we know and everybody uses all the time. What is Google say in response to all of this Because I was just reading some of it. You know, they said, Well, our product is just so good that That's why people like to use it and they have the other options and they just don't Yeah. I mean, that's why this is such an interesting case. And that's why, you know, we kind of expected continue seeing antitrust cases possibly brought against some of these big tech companies, particularly Facebook, but also Amazon, possibly Apple that there's a high likelihood that regardless of which party is in power We're going to keep seeing this. So they say exactly what you said. In response. They say they put in use the word monopoly, but they sort of copped to monopolize the market. But they say that's just because we're that good. You know, the other options are out there. You are free as a consumer to choose them. You're free to change the default on your phones so that its searching being more Google or doctor go. You do the same thing on your browser. People stick with us. This is Google talking because We just have the best search engine and we're not deliberately taking any action to prevent competition. And they say he's the same arrangements that they make with Apple to be the default in safari. They say. You know, the other guys are totally free to do that. And if they had a better product, and maybe they would have more more. These agreements like we have

Tomato Success with Craig LeHoullier
"You're also like a lot of people this year though you're sort of exploring new territory literally you are but a lot of people. There's been this enormous. I mean I was talking again for that story in. The Times talked to thome stearns of high mowing organic seeds and he was saying they had a three hundred percent increase in Gardner Home Gardener sales this year and some weeks. They were up as much as five times normal week to week. And and so many people gardening garden centers or having bumper business even though with the restrictions and so forth on on on shopping. And so you know you're a little bit of a new gardener too because you're new snow as you're absolutely right and the PRI the perfect timing of our move at a time where you know there are some really real challenges and difficulties with covert. I get to go through and share an experience of what it's like to garden in a new zone in a new area when confronted with New Space. New Decisions to make. So I you know all of us you and I are both and there was many of educators and in garden coaches and people who are trying to inspire new gardeners to stay gardens forever. So I'm hoping that opportunity allows me to share what I'm doing the things that succeed the things that go wrong. I'll be very open about all of it and then learn what. I can about gardening in Hendersonville in my particular yard this year. And we'll make some adjustments next year so I am you know. I've been gardening. Forty years to be able to still be as excited about gardening. Forty years into a hobby is just to me It makes it a very unique cobby. Don't you think and we'll also give people the heads up that you've been doing these really fun which I've been coming to. Instagram lives on Fridays. And sometimes at other times Friday afternoons and you're at NC tomato man on instagram. And you people can like ask you questions the new show us how you're doing things and what stage the plants are out and I mean they can just chime in and say what do I do about this. How do I stay that? What so? Let's talk about some of the things I mean I think in Raleigh you grew in Straw bales and in growing bags that were set on the surface of your very famous driveway. Your driveway driveways right. Yes and where? Where are you growing tomatoes and other things now? Are you growing in daggs in bales? Are you growing in the ground? What are you doing now? So we're we have about a quarter of nacre backyard that is quite sunny and but we have our septic field back there so one of the things I did not rush into is getting a shovel and digging up the soil I learned a lot about container gardening. Straw Bale gardening but will focus mostly in container gardening. And we'll definitely growing. I garden for years and years and years traditional garden. And so you never really forget about that experience. But it's it's a work in progress because I've got. Let's see twenty nine plants planted but another seventy or eighty that needs to get in there and they will probably go into ten gallon. Containers grow bags. You know. Maybe some going container. So it's you're catching me where it's a work in progress and figuring out day by day as I go along. What's the worst thing you ever did to a tomato may? Maybe the worst thing that ever did to to a tomato when it still rewarded me is we do seedling. Sales in the spring and all gardeners have lots of things that you don't sell. Don't get given away get forgotten. They just sit there so I had some sun goals that were at least two months past sales type they were. They were a foot and a half tall of just a stem with maybe a few leaves coming off it and they even. They didn't look very good. So I'd find those and thinking. Oh I've got space for another son Gold and they just bury. It is deep as I can and it leaves out in it produces delicious son go so I guess. The moral of the story is tomatoes. Tough gardeners I think in general especially new gardeners really. Don't WanNa make mistakes and we tend to maybe over care for and baby are plants. And I've learned through the years that tomatoes really do respond well to some tough love along the way. There's very few things that actually will kill them and make them disappear. Some of those things have teeth and But yeah they're very forgiving and You know we'll probably talk through some tips in this in this chat we have about what do you do? What are the things to do to help build in quality from the Front? And what are the things you do over the course of a season to ward off really sad stories and just put a smile on your face at the end of the season. Because you've you've succeeded you've got what you want. You've got delicious tomatoes and on the table in jars in the Freezer. So you just talked about that stretched out spindly overgrown overdue transplant of the Sun. Gold and how you can really deep also up north. We haven't planted because it's been snowing and stuff and even in a lot of other places people quite a bit to the south halfway between you and me or more people have had some frosts recently. It's been really nutty so not to worry. If you haven't planted yet folks I have a friend who even here up north one year. He was so busy with work assignments. He didn't plant tomatoes till July fourth weekend and he had the best rocky ever had but one of the things with an overgrown planners Finley plant like you said is planet really deep because they can make those adventitious roots off the stem right. There are plant. That can do that. So they can. Really root in Super deep not suffocating. It right absolutely and I actually also plant eggplant peppers deeply a As a few friends of call me I tend to be a bit of a rule breaker and yes. I read books and I read blogs but then I kind of put my thinking cap on and I think why can't I try this? And it has helped me to develop some new variations on techniques through the year and You know succeed more often than not. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA plant deep. I plant even a normal six inch. Kind of a seedling. Stout small seedling. That's maybe six weeks or so growing. Muno that I might have grown myself. I plant them deep. Do you take off the lower leaves. Do you create a splash like barrier to get prevents fungal spores from the soil from getting up onto that plant. Like what's your sort of I. How do I put it in the ground? And what am I thinking about? When I'm transplanting? So great question and it's a it's a really wonderful thing for beginners to consider as well because You may you may be looking to garden area. That's been gardened a long time he may be looking at something that you're just digging for the first time yourself. You may have a container. I think it's really good right from the start Your stand we're kind of soil you've got so is it. Does it dream? Is You if you dig a hole in? It rains that rain still there the next day or do you dig a hole in it. Rains and the water gone in five seconds. That tells you if you're to sandy during too quickly you're not retaining water so those roots are always going to be searching or if you've just got so much So much of a barrier to drainage that your roots are literally going to drown the plants. GonNa look like it's dry because it's wilting. But it's actually drowning because it's not getting oxygen so working organic matter and soil and maybe sending the sample off to an extension service just to get an idea if your three main trans n. p. k. nitrogen phosphorus potassium are in good balance At that point on you just dig a nice like you said Various much as the stem as you can or if you dig deep you can dig. How're you can dig diagonal and kind of been the plant in? Berry that stem because of photo tropism the plant grow up right. It may stick out of the ground bent but it will go right up toward the sun. It's almost like a trench and the two thirds of the stem is below. The root ball is at one end. Say at the left and then the most and sort of been the upper part in the upper couples. That's up and then you fill in that trench and your tomato will again. Can you say it will grow up
How I Built Resilience
"Hey welcome back to how. I built this resilience edition so we just heard from some industrial. Who actually started her. Culinary career at Chez Panisse in Berkeley and. Her Mentor was none other than Alice. Waters Alice daughter Fanny Singer. Join me to talk about how shape unease is doing during the crisis and how we can keep local farmers and business by buying straight from the source Finney. I know that you are sheltering place that your mom right now in Berkeley of all. How are you guys doing? How are you holding up? It's it's sort of strange very surreal. Moment I live in San Francisco and I do still have apartment there. But you know it's a one bedroom apartment and my partner and I are together. We both were working at home. And there's no outdoor space than being in Berkeley was not just to be with my mom who I obviously concerned about to. Just because I wanted to fee `sort sort of insane person about disinfecting nail and all the things in a little bit more German centric than my mother so these things were these work concerns of mine but also I mean to be Berkeley in a place that has really rich outdoor environmental NGO to walk through one hundred thirty seven pad this in the hills of the Berkeley into just feel to walk for ten. Miles is like the only thing I think kind of keeping me from total insanity. Alice tell us a little bit about. What's going on with Chez Panisse right now? Obviously you've been closed for five. Maybe six weeks. What's going on with the staff right now. We really paid the step their time off so that when it comes time to reopen that they would be there and available we had the good luck to get a kind of bridge loan from some wonderful friends of the restaurant that are helping us get to the point where money comes from the government to pay people. Some are on unemployment and some are being paid a portion of their salaries. But it's really important to me that people are paid at this time. If I have to ask my friends I have my friends Alice. One of the things I read about which is super cool. is that Obviously you work with a lot of small farmers all over California and a lot of these farmers presumably. I mean they supply restaurants so first of all from your conversations with with farmers that you work with you supply your restaurant and other restaurants. I mean what is their situation like I mean? How long can they go like this without having restaurants to supply? It's very serious. What's going on with our whole organic farm community because they really have a only the farmers markets to bring food to and the number of people that are going to farmers markets is not what it usually is so. We're trying to figure out how to buy that food from the farmers and we have a project in Stockton California The mayor of Stockton is very enthusiastic about getting or Ganic Food in the public school system and serve at this moment in time. He asked if we could help buy food from the farmers said that he can give an stockton and I thought that that would be a perfect way for us to begin building that network that we're going to need for the public schools and were putting little recipes into the box so that people know how to make very simple dishes and may given at least four thousand pounds of food away in Stockton Alice. I I mean you've talked about this for years that when you were a little girl. Your parents had a victory garden at home in New Jersey and that you really are encouraging people to plant their own. Things actually inspired me so much. I've got some ceilings. Here can you see some big lettuce there? You go and I'M GONNA hopefully. That'll be lettuce in a couple of months. I mean I don't have a big backyard. I have a small space and got a planter but for people who don't have a backyard who might live in an apartment I mean what are some ways that people can think about growing their own food that keeps looking at Brown Finley and he started by chanting food out in front of his house? In that little parkway between the sidewalk and the street and it caused a lot of controversy and he actually cited for violating. Some ordinance got any went to court. He wanted his case and he actually has planted that whole strip of land. So sort of thinking about him. I did the same thing I cup. That little plop right in front of my Bad I think you can plant like you have done and planter boxes on a balcony. I hope that the community gardens began to surge research and unite. My mom planted the little section. That's just in front of our house because even though we do have a garden in the back she wanted people to think about this victory garden moment and the potential for even the most throwaway pieces of land. It's now planted with a few different edible things and she's already gotten notes through our mailbox thanking her for taking this kind of actions embolic being encouraging people. And you've just seen this proliferation of gardens now in people's sort of little forgotten front yards and people sowing seeds all around the neighborhood now and way. It's really incredible. I've just never seen anything like it before you know. One of the things that you've talked about is the idea of buying local produce supporting local farmers wherever you are in the country around the world and you know one of the questions that that we're getting from folks on facebook Tuesday from Bell Zelezny also which what are ways that we can help. Small farmers are other ways of their places where we can go buy things from them especially farmers who are used to providing restaurants. I if you are at a loss for who you're farmers are do. The work researching call the pharmacy. Are you having trouble? Are you imperilled? Is there a way that I can help? You facilitate a network of deliveries. Can I help you deliver? But also it might be a question of just helping them figure out logistics or even knowing who they are. Where their farms are I mean? I have friends in. La The lines were so long that they weren't able to get any food so they just started figuring out who the farms were that they could drive out to so they could still got great produce. And I mean it's been a little bit more problem solving and resourceful and also knowing that the farmers are maybe really good at growing vegetables. That don't necessarily know how to work. A whole distribution network. And if that's something that you have extra time for facility with like make the effort because they do need us
NASCAR reveals changes for short tracks
"There's a new short-track package in use this weekend. And for more on that here's them. Rn's Kyle rigging while a lot of attention this week at Phoenix. We'll be focused on the championship race. Being moved there and what teams can learn from this race. That will apply later this year. There's another change at Phoenix. A new short-track package debut in for the first time in twenty twenty Stewart Haas racing. Eric Merola is up for trying. Anything that will help. Make the short track racing better. I think it could make a lot of difference. I think it certainly could make the racing. Better I I. I feel like Nascar really achieved a pretty good package for the intermediates to where it's a lot more racy the car. The car's are closer together the competitions tighter and so now on the short-track count lost that. We had that with the two thousand eighteen package where the races were awesome. And we were you know. We're racing side by side and passing the lead and all that and then as we got more downforce The cars were more gripped up to the race track and and then it was a little bit more challenging to pass this year so I feel like the marriage of the two. Now we're having the high downforce high drag on the intermediates but then the low downforce on the short tracks is really going to be good For our season and for those short track races teammate. Kevin Harvick echoes those feelings and says this could help S. HR dramatically whether the tires changed a little bit since two thousand eighteen Very similar to what we had in two thousand eighteen. That was a great year for us at Stewart racing. And and you know for US. We have a different car even been. Finley had in two thousand eighteen with with the Mustang now. So you know there are everybody's got differences chevrolets got a new car Toyota's probably the only one that got that. Got The same car but you know there are enough changes. That's going to be different but I think with the lower downforce obviously with higher downforce. I don't I think it's pretty common knowledge at this point that everybody knew we needed a change on the short tracks for us. That's a good thing because I felt like short track program in our road for stuff was probably the report of what we had last year. So you know I think as as we go forward You know I think there's a lot of things that point to a lot of bright spots for us is that could be positive but like you say you never know until you get into it. But I think it's GonNa it's definitely going to create better racing. What we had last year. T. May in rookie. Contender sole customer is hoping the package makes the cars closer to what the extremity cars were like. Yeah me I'm looking forward to the short tracks. The changes that they made probably for the aero side of it is GonNa help the racing a lot from what it seems like from last year but at the same time. I mean it's still going to be a little bit new to me but It'll be closer to what the extremely cars were last year. So I think I'm really looking forward to that and seem you know what the short-track package is going to be like. I think it's it is something that could probably depth a little bit better to sentence probably gone meal. The more simple Kurt Busch breaks down. Why getting the racing right at short tracks is such a big deal. The easiest way for fans to digest it as at at the short tracks where we have less speed have hardly any downforce so the slower the track the more we're going to be sliding around the faster the track the more the cars are going to stick other than Daytona Talladega. That's different RESTRICTOR PLATE. Rules there so just think of it size of track the smaller the more they're going to be slip sliding around. Just it's GONNA keep us jumping around a lot and I love to see the same rule package work at all tracks but it just won't put on good show that we need to have the side by side is if the short-track package produces the desired effect. Phoenix race. Fan should be in for a treat. Come Sunday
What happens after you expose a Neo-Nazi recruiter?
"Brian Thorp is the Winnipeg free press reporter who outed Matthews. Who broke this story and who has continued to followed? Hello rife first of all you are in the documents in court. Tell me about that that definitely Caught me off guard a little bit After news broke the Patrick Matthews had been arrested in the united. I states all of these court documents sort of being released to the public quite detailed document and so it was going through them piece together. These stories when I was still you know back cure and Winnipeg and reading this affidavit from an undercover FBI agent that was used to secure a number of the rest for and and all of a sudden. It's quite clear they're talking talking about me and that Patrick Matthews while he was down in Georgia and was hanging out with other members of the base Plotting various various things he got onto the subject to me at least according to this UNDERCOVER FBI agent Claiming that you know I was essentially just an anti fascist activists not journalists. And what I'd done should carry the death penalty. What was your first thought? When you read that it was pretty unnerving Having said that it was was I guess somewhat expected there's been blow back from my reporting on this story. Certainly some threats come my way and obviously I was pretty sure sure that Mr Matthews wasn't pleased with me and what I write and so maybe now I'll get you to kind of follow up on all the reporting hoarding. You've done here. The last time we talked to. You was right after you had outed Patrick Matthews as a white supremacist recruiting for domestic terror organization. Essentially and then he vanished gnashed from Canada. What do we know about what happened right? After you outed him. Thinks these Court documents that have been coming out. we've really filled the gaps in terms of what Matthews is up to who he was with and And how he moved around in the aftermath of him Disappearance so if the I who says the two members of the base Drove more than six hundred miles from Maryland into Michigan to pick up Patrick Matthews after he illegally crossed into the United States after the Winnipeg free press exposed to at that point. They're moving around a lot At times at one point there is there holed. Hold up in a hotel in Maryland. Another point they're living in an apartment in Delaware at another period of time there down in Georgia at one of these paramilitary military training events called hate camps. So the certainly quite busy while Matthews and one of his co-accused Brian Lumley junior are living at this apartment and a and Newark Delaware. They're alleged to purchased A number of firearm parts and you have a constructed manufacturer to fully automatic assault rifle. They're also electric stock more than one thousand six hundred fifty rounds of ammunition to got their hands on some body armor and according to the FBI you know tracking these people with really some of the most sophisticated counterterrorism techniques at their disposal. They were plotting and number thing. One Point Matthews was involved attaching. A murder applaud down in Georgia To be perpetrated against it a married couple that they'd identified as Anti Fascist activist and also while in Delaware Matthews News and his co accused. Mister Finley Are alleged to have repeatedly discussed various violent attacks that they could carry out at the pro. Gun Rally in Richmond. Virginia that was held on the twentieth. How did the FBI and up infiltrating the skiing so they deployed a number number of different strategies They were accessing cellular location data recording telephone conversations you know tapping into encrypted chat rooms rooms. They were times trailing as the suspects in-person they did Searches of various properties. While no one was present then installed audio and video surveillance and down in Georgia. At least we also know that At least one undercover FBI agent directly infiltrated fool traded the organization. So he was there while they were plotting things around the Virginia rally earlier than that. What kinds of stuff did did he see the in person so the undercover FBI agent was privy And witness to plot for the murder plot in in Georgia. So what the if your agent learned with that Patrick Matthews and another Liked remember the base who was arrested in separate incident identified at this anti-fascist couple and begun making plans to Samsonite them. Essentially but the FBI agent says that within a month after Matthews goes back to Delaware is Co conspirator begins this hour on them and says that he thinks matthews is incompetent and carry out the crime with him though collectively all get arrested so they decided to exclude them from the plan but That then posed a problem because the carried out the crime without him he was aware way or of it and would be able to tie into it so a member of the base down in Georgia then comes to the conclusion. That what we're going to have to do is if we're GONNA have to murder mass us and then we can go on to carry out this double murder against this activist couple So in this bizarre twist Matthews now finds himself across tare of this murder plot that he helped patch. How close do we know that they got to carrying out any of these things? I mean we know that they were arrested before the rally were a lot of this stuff was planned all the things that they discuss. It doesn't seem like any of them. Were that close to coming to fruition. Well in terms of the Virginia junior rally I mean they did a mass. You know not only a fully automatic assault rifle but also a sniper rifle They had gone A bunch of different materials that they plan to use they had base prepare You know nine your body armor all of these things and then they were discussing. You know various obvious different attacks that they could do at one point matthews is talking about you know quote literally hunting people. Mr Lumley had thrown up the possibility of you know we need to find. Signed a police officer WHO's isolated. We can south and ate them. They'd also discussed the possibility of opening up fire on this crowd from multiple angles No clearly the FBI was concerned enough about this situation. Felt they're ramping up Does something enough that they moved in a few days. Prior to the scheduled rally the they play these people under arrest in terms of the the plot coming out of Georgia that one was planned very meticulously in a very indepth way over the course missive several months so it seemed At least according to these court documents that they were indeed gearing up to perpetrate this double murder to do we have any idea From the documents or even just from anything the FBI has put together how connected this cell was to the wider network of the base. And how tied together this organization actually so. It's definitely a decentralized organization previously tries to create you know these information nations silos but According to the documents There was a number of gathering to gatherings in Georgia and another one planned in a different state that didn't end taking place Over the course of Matthew's time As he was illegally in the US At the one in Georgia I believe there's about twelve members members that arrive there so this would be you know it's several cells. It'd be converging in one location in order to train together and to build Camaraderie And in addition to this there also communicating in these encrypted chat rooms in order to establish connections amongst themselves so well it needs to be understood a decentralized organization and each individual cell has a fair amount of autonomy in terms of you know what they're going to carry out It's definitely certainly a a loose connection and certainly as we saw with Matthew. It's a network that has the ability to ferry You know someone who's subject the multiple national security investigations in Canada helped him escape to the US and then Successfully move him around about four different. US States and provide homeless safe harbor. Do we have any idea. What Matthew standing is there was in the organization as a whole You know when you met him I I guess he was. He was a recruiter but How was he regarded by the base in the United States? In general well there's some indication that At least sections of the membership looked up to him due to his military background and that he perhaps would have been trying to pass on. Some of his skills You know to other members of the network But it but it also seems like after his time of Georgia at least with the one. You know Munc- calm right down there who's WHO's Individual by the name of Mr Lane He certainly soured on him. And eventually you know as I mentioned came to the conclusion that Matthews was incompetent. You know what his current standing might be in the eyes of his fellow You know knew the base Kind of remains unclear at this point. Only tell me about when the FBI finally decided to move and arrest these guys they were taken into custody January sixteenth Matthews and Linley. My understanding is we're at their Delaware apartment the FBI begins to move in on them and as they realized that. They're about about to be busted matthews in Lear accused of smashing their cell phone then dumping them in the toilet and attempt to Destroy some evidence little little. Do they know this was being captured on. FBI Surveillance Video. One of the more disturbing things was that the FBI was able to get access to mount these personal computer and on their he had recorded a number of propaganda videos where he was effectively urging other neo Nazis to engage violent attacks in order to spark what he called older revolution for the white race in one of these videos. Matthews is wearing a gas mask. So it's a very striking image and And he's doing doing this. In order to try and conceal his identity and one of the the direct quotes that he says is something along the lines of derail some F. trains murder for some people poisoning water supplies. You better be ready to do this if you want the white race to survive. You're going to have to do your part. Jeez Jeez yeah it was. It was pretty unnerving stuff but having said that You know it fits with what we know from the about the base from my reporting and from the reporting from a couple of other You know journalist that that focus on this file which is that. This is an organization. That

Sky high expectations for Modi's second term
"Narendra Modi begins, his second term office this week after a landslide election win Justice sing discusses, what he must do to live up to the hopes of the armies of young people voted for him with Amy Kasmin. And Stephanie Finley we begin with the voice of one young supporter. The world should know that India has finally woken up. We are not sleeping anymore. And now we know what a right, who is the right person who is good for India. We don't think on communal basis anymore. We don't vote on the basis of costs on the basis of religion now, we would for the wlob India for development we vote for India and not a particular party who has always ruled India like congress, Amy, the sheer scale of his victory has surprised many. What is your assessment of Mr. Moody's triumph? Look, I think the scale of Modi's victory is down to really multiple factors. First of all the opposition was really an utter disarray. I don't think the congress party has really truly recovered from the battering that it received in two thousand fourteen I think, in terms of leadership. They didn't have a very clear electoral strategy. They were completely destroyed. Other parties were factionalized. So the opposition did not offer any kind of convincing alternative to Mr. moody, on the other hand, you had the BJP, Mr. Modi's party, and then crew ably well, organized, highly tuned, and deeply resourced political machine. They had a great product and Mr. Modi, he's a charismatic strong leader highly conscious of his image. And then behind him. He had this incredible machine with all its resources, Mr. Modi's government over the last five years had started a lot of social welfare, schemes they estimate that two hundred and twenty million people benefited from one Mody government scheme or another, this included things like distribution of gas, cylinders to people who had previously been cooking, highly polluting, cow, patties, or would door charcoal. They opened. Rnc accounts for millions of people they delivered toilets or funding for people to build toilets. There was funding for building low cost housing. Other governments have also had a lot of schemes in the past, but these were probably delivered more efficiently. But then the BJP party machinery was absolutely astute in maintaining contact with all of those who benefited from any kind of government program, and then the party with its machinery, reminding people who delivered these benefits to them and overall, Mr. Modi, just really projecting himself as the confidence strong decisive, and really one and only leader for India against a weak and fragmented. An unconvincing position led to essentially a massive landslide that we've seen really a historic verdict the first time in decades that any leader has. Two consecutive single party majorities on their own. Stephanie, you were at the BJP headquarters on the day election results came out. Did you get a sense that people's expectations from Mr. moody will be even higher this time? So the mood was just euphoric at the headquarters thousands of people had come they were dancing playing music, and they were thrilled to be part of what they saw as a historic moment for mister Mody. And also for India in there is Mr. moody, Ken deliver what the congress has failed to deliver in India for so many years, and many people repeated the line to me that it's only Mr. Mody that can take India from developing to developed country. Most young people were very confident that Mr. Modi could deliver on his promise to create jobs, and they said that Mr. moody gave them the motivation to get. Job, not necessarily that he would create government jobs for them. But they did expect that Mr. Mody would create a booming business environment that would take India into the future and them along with it. So Amy huge expectations. Tell us water the key challenges before him, the astonishing thing really about this election. What came as a surprise to many as the fact that in two thousand fourteen Mr. Mody had campaigned on a promise of reviving economic growth, creating millions of new jobs to absorb the young people in the workplace. In fact, Modi's track record on the economy is pretty patchy. And right now, there is actually a lot that needs to be dealt with India's economic growth is slowing down in the last quarter for which we have the data. It was six point six percent. There are some people who think the next quarter could be even slower that some growth may come in under six percent. So growth is really full touring and growth is critical because it's with growth that you get jobs, which are so badly needed. There's also serious issues in the financial sector these things called non banking financial companies. They're not really banks. But they provide a lot of consumer credit, which is driving demand and keeping growth going, but many of them are very, very shaky. One is already collapsed, if others collapsed, it will have an impact on the banking system because around five percent of all Bank lending is to these nonbank financial companies. The government's finances are also not in very great shape. The government wants to try to step up spending to try to revive growth. But in fact, they don't really have the fiscal space to do so tax collections of come in, well below expectations, and their plans for accelerated growth will be hard to meet given the level of tax collection. So there's a lot of stored up trouble. Meanwhile, private companies haven't really been investing in the Indian economy either throughout the whole term of the Modi government, and the banking system also has still weighed down with heavy non-performing loans. The question is really, what is the Modi government planning to do about these problems, because we haven't seen any clear indications of how they plan to tackle these issues how much they feel the urgency of the situation, Mr. Modi's foreign policy is considered one of the main achievements of his previous tenure, what are the issues confronting Mr. moody on foreign policy, and trade fronts, Mr. Modena's reached out to leaders across the globe. He's tried to avoid taking sides in some of the rifts that have arisen in the international system. Particularly rising tensions with the US and China. He's reached out to. Chinese president Xi Jinping. He's reached out to Trump. He's reached out to Japan's Shinzo obey. His tried to indicate India's willingness to be friends with everyone. I think I see a few challenges ahead, though, under Trump. America is really forcing countries into hard choices. For example, India has traditionally good relations with Iran, but the US has pressured India and other countries to stop all their energy purchases from Iran, because the US wants to put the squeeze in Iran. The US for longtime been rather tolerant of some of India's economic policies that make it tough for American companies to do business in India, and are seen as favoring Indian companies in the past, the US was willing to tolerate some of that from India because they thought India's a democracy. We want to encourage India to rise and grow strong economically so that it can serve. Some kind of regional counterweight to China, but under Trump, it seems like trade is everything and Trump will be more concerned about a twenty billion dollar trade imbalance with India than the long term, strategic interests of a stronger India. So the US is putting a lot of pressure on India. And this is a kind of a friction point, and generally, I think India is going to find the US is pressuring India to take sides and it's likely to get tough with India, Hindu nationalist vision of India has often clashed with secularism enshrined in India's constitution often during the campaigning heard that the election, this time was about the soul of India. Do you see any serious threat to India's diversity, this time around the idea that defined the first years of India in the decades after its independence, really as are related by Mahatma gone? Bundy and then his political heir job, Lal Nehru was that India was by its nature, a diverse pluralistic, multifaith society. The state was to be secular in the sense of not having a religious identity and not preferring. One community over another alongside that idea husband, another idea championed by the RSS formed in one thousand nine hundred five that India is primarily a Hindu country, it is clear that the BJP has been heavily influenced by this second ideology. In fact, the BJP was formed by the RSS to promote these ideas and carry this message into the political sphere. The election campaign, had a lot of costal anti-muslim overtones for many in the BJP one of the. Mandates for the BJP who's been elected to the parliament is someone who has actually been criminally charged with involvement of a bombing of a Muslim burial grounds where at least six people, including a young child were killed many were quite shocked that the BJP would put up such a person who still awaiting formal trial in connection with this case in the wake of his landslide reelection victory. Mr. moody did make a speech where he talked about. We want to win over the trust of minorities of this country. We want to govern for all, but I think given the divisiveness of the campaign while Mr. Modena's clearly made the right noise. You know, these conciliatory comments about winning Muslims trust, I think it will take more than one speech to reassure minorities, that they will be protected, and I think that it will be the actions. Finally that will speak louder. Than a few words. That was Justice. Sing took it to Amy Kasmin how South Asia bureau chief, Stephanie Finley, South Asia. Correspondent in Delhi?
