Biden: US would intervene with military to defend Taiwan
"Drawing comparisons to Ukraine President Biden says the U.S. would intervene militarily if China were to invade Taiwan President Biden was in a news conference in Tokyo this morning and when a reporter asked him this question are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that Yes It's the strongest statement about Taiwan from a U.S. president in decades The idea that it can be taken by force has taken by force is just not appropriate Dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine China claims the island is a rogue province therefore a ministry expressed strong dissatisfaction in opposition to Biden's statement saying China will take firm action to safeguard its sovereignty and security interests The 1979 Taiwan relations act made it policy for the U.S. to ensure Taiwan has the resources to defend itself but does not require the U.S. to step in I'm Jennifer King

Ginni Thomas' emails deepen her involvement in 2020 election
"Newly revealed email shows Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas wife was more involved than previously known in efforts to keep Donald Trump in The White House The emails first published by The Washington Post show in the days after the AP and others called the presidential race for Joe Biden Ginny Thomas urged two Republican lawmakers in Arizona to pick their own slate of electors Arguing Biden state win was marred by fraud Thomas had also written text messages to then White House chief of staff Mark Meadows encouraging him to work to overturn Biden's win Her husband meanwhile has taken part in the high court's consideration of suits challenging the election results Democrats have called for justice Thomas to step aside from election related cases but there's no indication he intends to do so Washington
Dinesh D’Souza Explains Partnership With Salem Media Over '2000 Mules'
"And we've never really partnered like this. Talk a little bit about the importance of your team partnering with our team for 2000 mules. Well, first of all, I think it's to the great credit of Salem as a company. I mean, it's a public company to take on a topic like this that has so many minefields and so many risks, I think is a testament to the great courage of ALM in stepping behind this. The second thing that's kind of funny, Mike that I think you'll appreciate, as you know, Salem hosts are not of one mind on this issue. There was a lot of variety of points of view. Perhaps Eric metaxas and gorka leaning more to the idea of, yeah, that was stolen election, but certainly Dennis prager and Charlie Kirk and Larry elder were not on that same page. And when Salem first suggested to me the idea of putting the hosts in the movie, I wasn't quite sure how that would work. And then I got the idea of kind of bringing them together, telling them nothing about the movie, just talking about what they thought originally, then showing them the evidence and recording their spontaneous reaction. I knew they'd have a lot of intelligent questions, and I thought, well, those are going to be the questions on the mind of the audience. And then we'll sum up by asking them their conclusions. So it worked beautifully essentially what we did is we took this Salem host and made them part of the plot of the movie.
Katty Kay: U.S. Having a Baby Formula Shortage Is 'Unbelievable'
"Here's Katie Kay from the BBC Another far left outlet over there She does the same thing Acting perplexed and confused that the big government that they all kissed the butt of is so incompetent that they can't even handle a baby formula crisis It's not Joe yeah Joe Biden is uniquely unqualified I'll give you that But surely there are people around him who know what they're doing And the answer is what they're doing is intentionally destroying this place They can't help you know that So they got to make it out that no no it's just a character flow at this administration here Listen to this check check out catty K from the BBC Take a step back The idea that the United States of America is having to import baby formula from Switzerland because mothers are running down to one can or even less to try and feed their babies They literally can not feed their babies and this is in 2022 The world's biggest military the world's biggest economy can't get baby for me a lot of people just seems frankly it seems kind of unbelievable If somebody had told this to me a couple of months ago I would have never believed that this was going to happen This headline started cropping up two or three weeks ago And two or three weeks ago there wasn't very much attention being paid to this The first story is I saw about it back then I thought I hope The White House is on this because this has the potential to blow up in their faces politically in a very big way And of course much more importantly it is causing huge amounts of stress to parents
Mitch McConnell Blames FDA for Formula Shortage
"I want to play for you one clip for sure. Leader McConnell yesterday was on with Brett fair last night and talking about the baby formula shortage, and he said, but I've been telling you for days, but I like it when the leader tells it to Brett bear on special report, cut number 28. Almost total incompetence. They misjudge us from the beginning. It's not a matter of money, the FDA has a $6 billion budget. They could certainly take care of the so called appropriation in the house that they just passed at 28 million. Bureaucratic incompetence, the administration was behind the curve. FDA needed to step up their game and hopefully will solve this problem very quickly.
Why Doesn't Joe Biden Condemn Protests Outside SCOTUS Justices' Homes?
"Administration condemning the illegal protests outside the homes of Supreme Court Justices? Every day they don't do that is another day that puts the Supreme Court in danger. And you know what? There are Republican leaders, you want to know why people flock to Texas or Florida or even Virginia. Because of governors because of red state governors or even purple states with a Republican governor like Glenn youngkin. Listen to what governor Glenn youngkin said to Jesse watters last night on Fox News. This leak was done to cause chaos, and it was done in order to stoke picketing and parades in order to try to influence justices. And oh, by the way, that's why governor Hogan and I have absolutely demanded that attorney general Garland enforced the federal statute, which is to put people in jail for parading and picking. I don't think he's going to do that though. Do you think Garland's going to step up and do that? I will tell you, I don't think he will, and he absolutely should. It's clear in the statute that that's illegal and he should enforce it. So what are we going to do? We have substantial, we have substantial assets in our state police and we in fact are poised ready to make sure that there's no violence at our justice's homes that the justices are safe. Their neighbors are safe and the demonstrators need to be
Extreme Athlete Tom Jones Is Running 76 Marathons for a Cause
"I'm not making this up. He's my guest right now. Tom Jones, welcome to the Erik metaxas show. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. Look, I want to ask you so many questions. First of all, the principal reason I'm having you on is because you are going to be doing something fairly shortly along the lines you just described. What is this thing that you're going to be doing soon? Actually, I'm almost right in the middle of it. I've run 30 back to back marathons as we speak in the middle of it now. Yes, yes, we left April 19th from montevallo, Alabama, and I've been running a marathon a day every day since then, including today. A marathon a day, okay, that's not something I've ever done, even for a single day. So what you're doing right now, it's affiliated with united we pledge. What is united we pledge? Because I know your goal is to draw awareness to the constitution to American freedom. What is united we pledge? The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.
Naomi Wolf Discusses Her New Book 'The Bodies of Others'
"Right, so the thesis of the book, it's kind of a sequel to my 2008 book, the end of America, which in which I looked at tyrannies in history, whether the tyrants were on the left or on the right, turns out it really didn't much matter. Because they always took the same tense steps. And I warned at that time that we could lose our democracy in the United States. And I kept up the same warnings as you may know, administration after administration, it doesn't matter, left, right, it didn't matter when Obama was droning American citizens. I spoke out against it when he didn't close Guantanamo, I spoke out against it. So I was consistent throughout it's a nonpartisan issue, whether we uphold our constitution or trans partisan issue. So the bodies of others, I really wrote it about this recent past, this current historical moment, 2020 to the present. And about the pandemic, but basically my argument is that. What happened was that a handful of bad actors at a global level, notably tech companies, China, the World Economic Forum, which I thought was a conspiracy theory till I actually read Klaus Schwab's book and listened to his speeches. And it was right there. And using pharma exploited the pandemic in order to recreate the world in a way that was targeted at killing off the human, the human advantage. And what do I mean by that? So I have an unusual bio in that I've been a reporter for 35 years. I've also been a political consultant to a presidential and a vice presidential campaign. So I understand how politics unfolds at that level. And I'm now CEO of a successful tech company. So I realized pretty early on. Certainly when in March of last year, when they started announcing vaccine passports that what these policies did, which are so unscientific was to kill off the things that human beings do better than digital
Patrick Assalone Gives Us the Inside Scoop on Investing
"A step further. For the average person who would like to learn more besides, you know, target trading and you're actually doing this, is just regular investing the best ways you're looking at is just become passive. Is that why one of the underpinnings of our economy has become one of those and I've been on the other side. I had a series 7 to 66. I was on the retail side. I saw what the institutional side did when I was at wachovia securities. And it was strange how the institutional side would always tell you XYZ was a conviction by make sure your clients are all in it. The reason was is the institutional side had already run it up as much as they possibly could, and they needed a bunch of suckers to offload the stock on. Because without those buyers, they couldn't sell. And that's essentially what these big banks are. If you think for one moment that there's this Chinese wall protecting them from you, there's not. They know exactly what you're holding. They know exactly what you're being sold. They know what positions you're in. They know this because why? Your financial adviser is most likely selling them one of their products that create the biggest rip or commission for them. They're not managing for you. They call you when they need more money. They call you when they've got something that's a great buy and you should do this. I don't make any money off any of my students aside from education. I am the only person in this business that actually calls the levels out the session before. Where to get in, where to get out and how to do it with how many the day before. Nobody else does that. You can go
Replacement Theory Becomes Don Lemon's Talking Point
"The replacement theory, that's the talking point of the Don lemonheads of the world. They're talking point is, well, people on the right are concerned that illegals are going to become Democrats, but then they take it a step further. And then they say that Tucker Carlson's of the world not only believe that Democrats want wide open borders so that they can ensure future Democrat victories in elections, but the Tucker carlsons of the world are fearful that white voters will be replaced by Hispanic voters, therefore that's racist. It's a little bit like Donald Trump being anti illegal immigration. Well, that must mean he's anti Hispanic that must mean he's racist. That's their, that's their dumbbell thinking.

Bezos Calls Out Biden President Over Inflation and Corporate Taxes
"You think about Jeff Bezos being much more sort of in step with the liberal left given that he owns and runs up well he owns Washington Post. Anyway, he's out there. He's stepping up his criticism of the Biden administration on Twitter. This is pretty good. He's going to new one out. I'm going to share with you, but what I loved was what he put out on Friday as we went into the weekend. This thing was epic. Epic. On Friday. Jeff Bezos called President Biden over a tweet in which Biden said that taxing wealthy corporations could actually help lower inflation. Okay, that's just wrong, right? It's just wrong because think about it for two seconds. If you tax corporations more, they still need to deliver to their shareholders, therefore they're just going to raise prices even more. So that actually really doesn't make any sense. He said, and I quote, you want to bring down inflation, let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. This was on May 13th. And Bezos then retweeted it with some info of his own urging, well, sort of urging the disinformation board to review that one, right? He said quote, raising corporate taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection. In other words, where's the government disinformation board that ministry of truth as we like to call it? Where are they when you need it? Oh, wait a second. They can't actually help in this case because you see the government itself. Is the source of the misinformation?
Sean Feucht and Eric Discuss the Need for Pastors to Show Courage
"My next book is called letter to the American church. And it basically says a lot of what you've been saying that the churches have been silent pastors whose job it is to speak up, they have allowed they've asked others or I should say they've been so silent that people outside the church are speaking up. It's kind of a wild moment. And we need to get pastors to be brave and to speak up. Yeah, I mean, it's really unbelievable. I mean, you know, in addition to going to Orlando, we're going to be on the steps of the Supreme Court on Tuesday. And you know, I think the roe V wade, we had the pandemic. We had the wild riots in the summer of 2020. And we had pastors across America shaming people into putting a black square on their Instagram and, you know, they were the justice fighters, but yet here we are on the precipice of overturning a 50 year death decree, the greatest injustice in the history of our generation and yet there's so much silence from pulpits across America. Every pastor in America should be preaching, just like I did yesterday here in South Carolina, should be preaching on the importance of us taking a stand against roe V wade that God is actually answering the prayer. So he's been pranked for years. And yet so many people are silent. We even have pastors apologizing for the fact that the Supreme Court is going to correct the wrong that was done in 1973. And make it unconstitutional to, you know, for this a law, this roe V
Jason Pye and Doug Chat About Alabama's Parole Board
"Board shot down every single case, denying relief to 28 eligible people. Including this man, Michael bettis, he said, he is serving. He has served, hear me, served 12 of 20 year sentence for marijuana possession and distribution. He served 12. He sat at a minimum security work center where they worked him for $2 a day. Turned him down. Now is costing you folks in just to let you know out there. Probably upwards of between 50. I mean, 15 and $30,000 to house him for a year. The older he gets, the more expensive that gets. Okay? This is the part that is really, I think if we emphasize this kind of. Now, I'm not going to go into because again, to get a 12 of 20, it's marijuana possession and distribution. You know how those chargers will work. But there's nothing else here that indicates that the 12 years is not more than sufficient to have him even on supervised probation, whatever it may be. But to get him out. But they turned out all 28 eligible, not a one. I mean, is this the case where honestly the headlines are affecting what should be non attributable boards. I don't know of a better way to put that. I don't want to say partisan because in a way they are, but are political boards. I mean, what would a call something like this? And again, they might come out that there's something you need to, but he wouldn't be now think about this folks. He wouldn't be eligible for parole. If they had to not satisfied everything else in his sentences, taken into his past to get the sentence that he's currently under. It's kind of mind boggling because I think I'm not trying to be mean here. I am from Georgia. But this is Alabama, which is, which is a notoriously tough state when it comes to when it comes to crime. But even Alabama has taken some steps in the right direction when it comes to prison reform. I mean, I remember there was a state I think state senator cam ward there who helped usher through Alabama's prison reforms back in, I don't know, 6, 7, 8 years ago. And that was at the time when DoJ had followed lawsuit over prison conditions in Alabama. But it's unfortunate. And it's frustrating because there had to be one person deserving of some sort of parole who they
Jason Pye and Doug Talk Political Gridlock
"That when we make progress, there seems to be, especially when it comes up in an election year, the halfway point to a presidential year, you know, it's one of those things and I say this I'm jokingly, as someone who tried to be in the Senate, you know, every day there's a hundred people in the world who wake up and believe they should be president. They're all found in the United States Senate. And you know, but why is it that we seem to always especially as Republicans? And some Democrats, frankly, if you look at it, go back to this idea that the only way to solve some of these societal eels is to go to a process we know really doesn't work and cost us money. When you're talking about criminal justice system, that is just this throw away the key mentality, lock them up no matter what. You don't have a second chance. You don't have a third chance. You don't even have a first chance. If you listen to some of the rhetoric. I mean, it works to a point. It's not negative ads. I mean, they work to a point, but at a certain point in time, truth needs to prevail out. And it's really frustrating at this point in time that you're seeing this rhetoric because we know we know this rhetoric doesn't work. I mean, I flip those numbers around the other side. I look at the 85% that haven't been rearrested. Those are large numbers to say, look, this is working. As we go forward, disturbing trend though I'm seeing an election. And I saw it in my election in the Senate race. I was vilified by the cities under miss laugh where four by her team for being a defense car for actually have represented clients in our confrontational system. Wow, actually upholding the constitution shocker in that regard. What was even worse is the ads run against me. We're not even clients of mine. They were actually my partners. And had Hispanic faces. We'll continue on. Again, but that goes to the heart of this sort of scare tactic that goes on. But now we're starting to see it again. But there is some hope that it's not working. I know you're familiar with the candidates in Indiana. One had helped on criminal justice. It was three candidates in the race. The third one who had had no background at all actually ended up winning this primary. So what I thought was interesting was the two Republicans, both had legislative backgrounds. Wanted health been helpful on bail reform and other things in Indiana. The other one attacked them for that and came in a distant third. Do you see some of this with the proper discussion and political will, if you would, winning out or do we still have a life? It's really hard to say right now. And speaking, speaking more to your race, because I watched that race. And I've never hid this publicly. I voted for you in the race stuck. I actually had a hard time working in a yard too. But in your race, it was pretty interesting because of the spinning that both the loeffler team and others were trying to do because they were saying that life were saying, oh, I supported first step back. It was the prison reform and redemption act that we opposed because that was the predecessor Bill the first step. And they were hitting you on that. And it's like, there is no difference between these two bills. The first step
Due Process Institute's Jason Pye and Doug Discuss the First Step Act
"Everybody, it's Doug Collins glad to have you back on the dog Collins podcast. You got a great friend coming back in today to be on the podcast Jason parr, due process institute. I've known him for many, many, many years that we go back from Georgia politics to D.C. politics everywhere in between. But I wanted to bring Jason back in to like a lot going on in the D.C. front and it's not just in legislation, but it's also in its election cycle. You probably will realize that watch list of this podcast Washington podcast went on. Election cycles tend to make politicians do sort of different things. And it's a lot of pressure going on. And I'm not criticizing that. I've been a part of and a lot of part of it. You have to sort of find what works is a guy who's worked with my campaigns consulted for me forever. Chip Lake says, he says elections can be about everything you want them to be. But at the end of the day, the voters have a say in what actually goes on. And that's true. But one of the areas that is so important that I wanted to bring Jason back in because I do a lot of work off podcast with this issue and that's criminal justice and criminal justice reform and Jason has been at the heart of that for a while. I work with the folks at justice action network. You've got a lot of groups out there that do this kind of work. But we're seeing some progress we're seeing some steps back and then what I want to talk to Jason about today is this idea that I saw a Republicans moving forward in what should be a really conservative issue combined with and they seem to be taking some steps back. So Jason Powell, welcome back to the dot com. Thanks for having me. It's good to see you as always. And that's a good time. I was going to say everything you're talking about in terms of criminal justice there are things that Republicans should be running on should be proudly proclaiming and your work on the first step act in Congress. You should wear as a badge of honor. And unfortunately, Republicans are going towards this tough on crime rhetoric that was so prevalent in the 1980s and 1990s. It's frustrating. Well, it is. And I think that's the part now. I wrote an op-ed a couple of weeks ago. We put it out and it was really hitting at that, you know, the whole idea
"first step" Discussed on Celtics Stuff Live
"For them to land on Brad, you know? Like if they had shopped it out and they had said it's just time for a change and Danny, you're kind of crusty and you know it's time and you know it was mutual, blah blah blah blah blah. And they did like a full on search, but even the search was half ass dude. They didn't really bring anybody in for GM. Oh, yeah, no, no, definitely not. Definitely not. So I mean, if they had put any forethought into Danny stepping down, they would have already come to this conclusion. But if they were going to let Danny go wouldn't they have gone out and tried to seek out a wider audience. But that's my point. That's my point. I wouldn't say. Because I don't. It's probably the money. But the point, the point isn't really like, why didn't they do it? The point is, is if they knew they were going with Brad? Why did Danny just tell us he had no idea that that was going to be the move? And then all of a sudden, he's not with the organization. They wind up moving Brad up and now he's in Utah after saying he was going to take a bunch of time off and didn't even make it a season. Something's fishy, dude. Something is super fishy. I'm fine with I'm fine. Okay, I don't know that I am not as I think that there was more unhappiness on the ownership side than was portrayed in the public. I agree with you. I agree with that. I agree with that part of it. And I think that there was unhappiness with both sides. I think it was mutual. I think I don't think ownership was happy. You don't think mutual separation? I don't think mutual not happy. I think mutual not happy. Right. I think everybody was miserable last year. I thought the players were miserable. The coaches were miserable. The ownership was visible and the GM was miserable. Nothing had worked out the way it was supposed to overlap. Isn't it great that there still miserable? Well, that's right. And what does that tell you? Right. That to me is the problem with this year is that we changed everything else. And we're right back where we started. Same place. So that's why I say you need to change in philosophy. And we really haven't changed philosophy. We kind of have still in still playing veteran players more than they probably deserve. Still not playing building up our assets, still not taking our assets and maximizing them so that you can turn them into a bigger and better players..

"Where the trades starts. Okay, let's shift. We're going to go to Danny in Utah. Dude, I'm going to tell you right now, there is a story behind this puppy. There's a major story behind us, puppy, and they're not letting it out. But there's a story. He got his ass booted for sure. Telling you. You think so? Yeah. Yeah. Something happened dude. Something happened. Think about the way that he says, I didn't really expect he's so good at, you know, taking the high road and everything else, but just pay attention to a couple of the little things in that whole conversation, right? I didn't really expect them to put Brad in that position. Now, if you think back to when we talked about all this, it was like, yeah, it probably transitioning out. It was probably around February and they had like, you remember our narrative on this, right? It probably had the plan and Brad was going to come in. It was like a succession thing and no, dude, Danny, Danny told you, if you were listening, that they had no freaking clue what they were going to do when they let him go. Which means he was dismissed. For sure. Nobody decides to just transition with no plan for who's going in that seat. And the person that's about to get succeeded, not knowing who's taking their seat, then he would never know business out there in the world would tell their vice president of sales, their GM, their VP of ops, hey man, you know, we're going to replace you, but we don't know who, but why don't you just go ahead and go now, that conversation only happens as a, we've had enough of you here, it's time for you to go. Nobody does that. Nobody..

"first step" Discussed on WSJ The Future of Everything
"Since the frenzy of that conference, well, it's been kind of a letdown, like the promise of yaska's farm, the Woodstock of physics failed to live up to its hype. So what happened? Tire Kelly says physicists tried to fit the work into their specialty. To recreate their own theories. Each convinced they'd solved superconductivity. But the electrons had other ideas. The electron didn't give a damn about any body at any university or degree they had. It was doing what it was going to do. And it did a little bit of every sub field, and nobody was equipped to handle it. And so basically you have this disaster here where hundreds of thousands of papers and no results. Overcoming the temperature barrier has turned out to be a lot more difficult than physicists imagined. Then in 2020, a breakthrough. A lab at the university of Rochester reported that they'd discovered the world's first superconductor at room temperature. So how's the grail been found? We'll find out coming up.

Last year, many researchers had their hands full with COVID-19. But a group of physicists in Rochester, New York, had set their sights on something entirely different. My name is wronged, yes. I'm a professor in physics and mechanical engineering at University of Rochester. I'm a scientist who work on superconducting materials with the goal of finding a superconducting material at room temperature at room pressure. Diaz became immersed in the quest for superconductivity while he was at Harvard. He was on a team that reported it was the first to create metallic hydrogen. That's hydrogen, the changes from a gas to a liquid or a solid when it's cooled to an ultra low temperature. But hydrogen can also turn into a liquid or solid at slightly higher temperatures if you put it under enough pressure. And it's been theorized for several decades that metallic hydrogen had the potential to become a superconductor. His prior experiences made Diaz eager to try to mix hydrogen with other elements to see if he could achieve superconductivity at room temperature. If that could work, it would be great. Because there's no shortage of hydrogen. It's the most common element in our solar system. So that's where the idea came into the picture and then a lot of theoretical work people have done over the years, I would say last 5 years, but the experimentally it was very challenging because of this react to nature of this material and making it to this really high pressures. Diaz found that by adding some other elements to that hydrogen, he could create a superconductor at 59°F. Room temperature. But with a caveat, it had to be done under pressure, a lot of pressure. What we did was that we mixed carbon and sulfur one to one ratio. And we apply pressure with hydrogen to four gigapascals. Four gigapascals. That's a unit of pressure. Close to the kind of pressure you'd find at the center of the earth. Diaz's team used special devices called anvils to squeeze the material between two diamonds to achieve this pressure, and the amount of superconducting material was microscopic. Physicists have been playing around with using pressure to change the properties of a material enough to make it a superconductor for a while. But even with the higher pressure, they'd never been able to get the temperature this warm until now. Diaz published his findings in nature in October 2020. And people were excited, says tire Kelly at CalTech. Beautiful paper, by the way. I think this Rochester result just shows you that anybody who's willing to weather the storm, there are great things waiting for you if you're willing to go through with this. But that pressure thing, about 2 million times what we experience on the surface of earth, it seems impractical for everyday use. And unlike the copper oxide superconductors that were all the rage at the Woodstock of physics, Diaz's work has been difficult to replicate, so are there naysayers? You bet. We talked to doctor Marvin Cohen at UC Berkeley about it. Now, in his experiment, there are some usual properties that are different from standard superconductors. In several theorists, now I'm a theorist and so and you're worried and I'm worried. Yes, I immediately thought this is wrong. It's not super connectivity. Professor Jorge hirsch does research and condensed matter physics and solid state physics at the University of California, San Diego. He's known as a lone wolf in the scientific community. And even has his own theory about superconductivity that often puts him at odds with other physicists. In fact, he's the only physicist we could find who disagrees with the 1950s theory of superconductivity. We talked about earlier. Now, professors hirsch and Cohen, they rarely agree on anything. But both have concerns about the latest superconductivity research. Kirsch in particular questions whether hydrides or hydrogen bonded to other elements under pressure, actually makes a high temperature superconductor. What really identifies a superconductor is not so much the resistance, but the magnetic properties, what's called the meissner effect. The meissner effect. We talked about this earlier. It's the expulsion of magnetic fields from the interior of superconducting materials that allows for things like levitating magnets. To hirsch, the thing that's fundamental to all superconductors is that they are able to sustain an endless current with this effect. In the magnet flows there forever never falls down because the current is circulating without any resistance. And this latest work with hydrogen, hirsch isn't convinced that this happened. That's the key experiment that you need to show that the highest and the pressure will have the ability to sustain a persistent current. I would say there is no demonstration that these materials are superconductors. Now, Diaz says he performed calculations that prove it happened, but hersh, along with doctor Marvin Cohen at UC Berkeley, say they want to see this replicated. The point is to try to get the experiment reproduced over and over again. And I certainly hope that they get everything straightened out and it's correct. But we're still waiting for more proof. But it would be really, very.

"Sustainability is a critical issue and on the new sustainably speaking podcast, we'll talk with trailblazing leaders who champion solutions to ensure a more sustainable and low carbon future. Subscribe today and don't miss this limited episode podcast. Hey, future of everything listeners, it's Janet Babin. The UN climate conference that just wrapped up in Glasgow Scotland, it elevated global conversations about new clean energy sources. And the podcast has spent the last couple of months now reporting out strategies for a zero carbon future that include a reboot of the world's energy sector. And earlier this year, we reported on a development that could one day reboot the energy sector in a completely different way. By eliminating electrical resistance. Thereby dramatically improving energy efficiency. This is the game changing potential of superconductivity. If the world could harness it, we could make trains that run routinely from New York to California in record time and power rockets that could fly to Jupiter. We're taking this holiday week as an opportunity to bring back this popular episode. Hope you enjoy. Several months ago, The Wall Street Journal featured an article about a man who was mining Bitcoin from a computer in his house. The computer was working so hard. It was heating up the entire room. Bitcoin, put your computer through a lot of calculations. And many of us are spending most of our time at home these days. So the man found a way to use all that energy coming off of his computer. He siphoned it to heat a greenhouse and grow basil and cherry tomatoes. That's how much energy his computer was wasting. And it's not just the Bitcoin guy, all of the devices we're using give off excess energy. How many times have you noticed your laptop scorching your thighs? Collectively, we lose billions of dollars every year because of this so called waste heat. It got me thinking about futuristic alternatives that could work to reduce that waste. So I reached out to an expert. I'm Marvin Cohen. I'm university Professor of physics at the University of California at Berkeley. Doctor Cohen explained that this waste heat from all of our devices happens because of friction. Too much friction from electrons. The electrons go down the wire, and they bump into things sort of. In the wire is heated so they get knocked around. And that gives you resistance and the wire gets hot. Cohen says that friction is called electrical resistance. And it's just what happens when you conduct electricity. It's normal. It means that some of the energy gets lost. But there is a way to get around it to manipulate the electrons, so the wires don't get hot and energy doesn't get lost. So if you could bring them together and keep them together, you'll have a superconductor. Superconductivity. The ability to conduct electricity without any kind of interference or electrical resistance. Materials that are perfect conductors of energy. Doctor Cohn says it's really hard to bring the electrons together to get them to pair up like this. You have to find the right material and then put them under extreme conditions, super cold or high pressure. But when you do these materials become almost magical. They conduct energy without electrical resistance. They're perfect conductors of electricity. And if we could get that to happen, could figure out how to make that happen on the regular, superconductivity could change the world. Cohen says it would mean super high-speed trains that can go as fast as planes. And it could make our energy problems almost disappear. If you could hook up Niagara Falls to Berkeley, you can get all the electricity from Niagara Falls, Berkeley without any losses. It would be incredible. We could even make a space rocket that could get us to the outer reaches of our solar system. Forget about mass, maybe we can go to Jupiter. Basically, superconductivity is the Holy Grail of physics. But like the Holy Grail, superconductivity has.

He is tremendous he is. He is a working machine. He's not even back in his office. He is at home doing this. Podcast for you. Just got back from vacation. And i understand that you gotta get away. You had the ability to get away. What did you guys do. Yeah we we had a really nice vacation and it was really our first family time together. An extended time together since coverage starts. So it's a long time. Yeah we've rented a house in western massachusetts for two straight weeks. Oh man yeah. It was great and we had our three grown kids with us in my wife's Brother joined us. And if you if you don't know that part of the world is really a wonderful there. It's the the berkshire mountains which run north to south from the borders of vermont and connecticut. New york on the on the west. And there's there's just lots to do The boston symphony orchestra. Plays out at the tanglewood which is a beautiful musical music venue fear. There's dance and there's really some interesting museums to which we we liked it but every day. We did something we did. We hiked bikes just very active. So it was just great and best of all we just hung out and joined the family at great meals and even had some good wine. I it was really fun being away. But i'm i'm actually glad to be back. i- usual routine. How about you do you ever these our glands. He you know we got a chance to get away my wife and i and my daughter actually the guy that i grew up with ever since second grade him and his family live out in south carolina and they decided to take a road trip and we have a group taxis. Hey anybody wanna meet in branson missouri. Well that's that's only like six hours away from me. Peter so my wife daughter and i had a down. He rented a big cabin so we stayed stayed there and and one interesting thing. We're outside around the fire late in the evening in we heard some noises and we're all positive it was a bear black bear most likely because there's been a lot of spotting down there but you know so. Some of the people were freaked out. I won't name names but some of them. People were freaked out but we did hear some other rustling and looked over. And it was the first time i've ever seen an armadillo live besides like zoo right. You see him in the zoo. But or i see him on the side of the road and they're just they're they're not alive but this one came right up to the cabin and he's hustled himself under the porch. You know he was hunting bugs or whatever he was doing as first time i saw one it was. It was pretty amazing. The very interesting creatures. That's that's great the to go to branson missouri for that. Yeah exactly so was fun but like you said it's good to be back and now that we're back and you're back in the podcasting seat. What are we talking about today. Yeah i thought we talk talk today about helping. Kids make their first. And and probably their biggest investment which is purchase of their primary residence. Yeah i think owning owning your own home is is still part of the american dream and many parents and their children believe it's really a great for step and building wealth and there's there are lots of financial and emotional advantages of owning your own property. There are inherent risks and costs and disadvantages of owning. But nevertheless i think in in many cases the advantages certainly outweigh the disadvantages. And this the reason i wanted to this podcast is over. The last few months we've had lots of discussions with clients about this kind of assistance to to their to their family and their kids and then and then while on vacation we had an interesting conversation with my kids about this topic. And i thought it was interesting to really hear their perspective. Okay so i want get into what you're sad to say i'm really interested in. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that discussion. Because i know that you're an educator at heart so i'm really curious but even before we get into that. Who else are you having these discussions with. I mean is this something that you're doing with your entire client base or or strangers on a train. I mean what are you talking about this. Typically when we're working with our clients. And i must say. Our clients are primarily affluent so they may not be the ultra wealthy in this country. You know not the the jeff bezos or or or bill gates but but but most of them have enough. And when i say enough. They're able to you know go through the planning process. We were able to meet their goals. And so when we're when we're taking them through that at planning we call it comprehensive. Planning i in generally focus on three really important questions that that focus primarily on their goals objectives and dreams and aspirations. That's where i'm hoping we'll go in our conversation and the first question is are we okay and when i say we i mean Is the client and their spouse if married can they meet their short and long-term goals given their resources there in their cash flow in their in their their actual objectives. And assuming the answer is yes because most of clients are are affluent. And and we we modeled that we we confirm that and it's really an important part of our planning processes probably where we spend most of our time is confirmation of that first question and then the second question is that comes about is now that we're okay. How about our family are they. Okay and by that. I mean the people in our world that we feel responsible for that we love our they. Okay and and by the way sometimes isn't just about our our our kids. It could be nieces. Nephews sibling cousins. Or dear friends you know. I mean that it. It's really family in in the larger term. Okay so i'd like to drill down a little bit. Because i i understand what okay would mean for me and maybe my wife so an individual or a couple being okay. But what do you mean. What's your definition of being okay when it comes to a family. Yeah when i when you answer that when you ask. That question comes to mind immediately. Is that that great. Warren buffett quote. Who said that And i'm paraphrasing a little bit but the the perfect inherent heritage is enough money so that children feel they can do anything but not so much that they could do nothing so for for some families year they they don't want their children to want for anything and other families believe their children should work for everything and there. Maybe there's something in between that of you know. I think in this country. There's there's a myth. And i call it a mitch is that we're we are all created equally and we all have exactly the same opportunities and although i think there's some truth to that to that belief i think that the the facts are that some children have have certain advantages that others don't and you know to me it's like like many children in our society start the hundred year the hundred yard race ten yards ahead of other people now. I i don't have a problem with that. I think that's that's the world and the society that we live in. And i think the definition of okay for family is is really complicated impersonal. And there isn't a right and wrong. You know one thing i do want to say. It's just a belief that i have is that that.

So, you know, everything is not comprehensively covered in the first act as its main. This is literally a first step towards many steps that we have to take in order to be able to recalibrate of your Coney and system that has proportionally impacted communities of Cohen guy. Now. And what is what about the imagery around the Bill? Like, I, you know, I'm glad you reached out to us. You know, we're very black space our our audience, but you know, I've seen a lot of pushback towards van Jones as a junior as the face of this and his light kind of. You know, the I guess the best word is like photo operee. Of some of these of photo opportunity, right? Around right. Yeah. Arctic's you go the optics. That's the best word. So I've seen like push back to the optics of, you know, glad-handing with conservatives enough to Trump sorta celebrating, you know, the victory of this. And I, you know, I and least in the space is I- occupa- pi it's been like a lot of light. You know, I rolling kind of push bag. How has that affected? You know one. How has it affected the atmosphere around just the the what you're trying to get accomplished? And does it affect like you guys personally? Let me let me say this. First and foremost, you are just aware of that, you know, van is aware that I'm aware of that as well. Right. There's certain spaces that I walk into family, friends, social of partners, etc. That that I roll, and, you know, neck turn as released mention of the Jones specifically in the context of working with Republicans working with this current administration someone that's so cool. You know, I'll begin my comments about this van Jones did not just arise in criminal Justice reform through the first step van Jones has been a champion around criminal Justice related issues. Going back twenty five years when you know he didn't have necessarily a national platform when he was when he was shutting prisons down. And when he was cooked a chicken off, you know, getting a crooked. Cops expelled from San San Francisco, police department, etc. He was known as the Johnny Cochran of the bay area. So you know, he his his rise the frame fame. It not begin an in with the first step back. That's number one second of all on new van Jones. I knew Vangelis personally in I can tell you that. There's no other person by I is is is in the space who is as passionate about this issue in about the cause of the people as being. Jones. I have you know, had the privilege of being a spaces with the likes of Cornell west, you know, by Dr Michael Eric Dyson who is one of my mentors, you know, Henry, Louis gates, etc. Etc. Etc. At infinitive, and then Jones passion, his commitment is perseverance in, you know, his I think his his level of resiliency is right on par with all of the aforementioned, you know, this is chestnut checkers. And you have to realize that while everyone on the outside. We're saying we should not give Trump victory. We should not give Trump victory who was thinking about the people who were inside. I can't tell you. I cannot tell one of two things how I would've wanted a somebody to fight for me as passionately as then in myself and everybody else on the fifty team and disinter coalition has fought on behalf of those. People who were incarcerated I can't tell you how I wanted somebody to fight his passionate for me when I was serving my nearly fourteen year federal prison sentence as I am for for for other people. That's number one, b here's the other issue when you think about this issue and people said that we should wait for another congress. We should wait for another presidency. We can't give Trump as win someone and so forth. How how do you stand in the delivery room?.
