Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks. The first pharmacies to come on board in Arizona are gonna be fries, Safeway and Albertsons. And so those will be included on our sites as we get notified, which pharmacies which specific pharmacy locations will have that scene? But they will be on our website and will be another source for those that are eligible to receive vaccine to go get vaccinated when this program becomes fully activated, more than 800 pharmacies will have covert 19 vaccine available in Arizona. We currently have more than 200 vaccination sites on our website that have received vaccine and this includes 45 community health centers as well. So if you are eligible and you receive care at one of our community health centers You could check on our website to see if they have received vaccine. And again just another update on helping our Arizona hospitals. We have been recruiting nurses with a nursing staffing contract here in the state. That's been one of our most successful endeavors. We are very excited. The majority of the nurses are here. When they arrive. They will stay on site for eight weeks with an opportunity to extend that On gesso. As of last week. 348 nurses have started work. We anticipated almost 200 more arriving this week again that We don't necessarily count them until we've heard that they have Arrived in the state and are attending on boarding at their assigned hospital. But we continue to work with our staffing contract to get all of the nurses that we can here in. Arizona State health director Dr Cara Crist went with her press briefing on covert 19 vaccine rollout that coming from the state Health Department. Go

New book charts changing tactics of fossil fuel lobby
"2021 brings a new president and new priorities for climate change solutions. How quickly can the. Us pivot toward a cleaner. Climate policy penn state university professor. Michael mann's new book. The new climate war the fight to take back. Our planet has some ideas. Michael welcome back to climate cast. Thanks great to be with you. Give us a thumbnail sketch of your book. What's the message here. The message here is actually pretty simple. Look climate change. Denial is no longer tenable fossil fuel interests. Those who've done their bidding. Those forces of inaction the inactive. Est says i call them simply recognize that they can credibly claim that climate change isn't real that it isn't human caused in that it isn't doing real damage now and so they've turned to other tactics in an effort to delay that necessary transition away from fossil fuels Moving attention away from the need for systemic solutions for policies that incentivize renewable energy and put a price on carbon to individual lifestyle changes Another one is false. Solutions the idea that there are simple technological fixes that somehow don't necessitate us getting off of fossil fuels. Michael twenty twenty one brings a new president may be what i would call an opportunity point for climate solutions and making them a priority. What has president elect biden proposed that heads in the direction you want to see. The biden plan the plan that he has put forward. is a bold climate plan It includes massive investment government investment in renewable energy which is very important part of the solution. There is support for carbon pricing of putting a price on carbon polluters pay when they dumped carbon pollution into the atmosphere right. Now they don't have to pay for that so the biden administration is Emphasizing the importance of those actions They are also reengaging the global community Reasserting our support for international treaties like the paris treaty and in fact for going beyond the paris treaty. So we know the bottom line where the rubber meets. The road is the atmosphere and when we talk about these policy changes how quickly can policy changes start to have an impact on our atmosphere. Yeah you know. There's some good news there. The prevailing thinking a decade or so ago is that when we stop emitting carbon. The planet will still warm up for decades. There is a substantial revision now in understanding of the problem that we can stop emitting carbon in the atmosphere we will see the fruits of those efforts Pretty quickly and that's why it is important for us to act dramatically over the next ten years. What would you say to those who are apprehensive about climate solutions and the economy. And what will you be watching for the next four years. Yeah what i would say is that you know there's a fallacy that somehow we have to choose between the economy and the environment that's simply not true if we act on the climate crisis we will save literally trillions of dollars because extreme weather events are costing tens of billions of dollars every year here in the united states alone there were record number of them in two thousand twenty and so it's a win win we act on this problem now We can avert destroying this planet for future generations and we potentially have a healthier economy as a result of it. Michael man with penn state university. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective today Thank you very much. Paul was a pleasure talking with you.

Vaccines are rolling out - so when will cases drop?
"Now the vaccine rollouts have begun globally. How soon do we expect to see a corresponding drop in cases of covid and also in deaths. Well fun issued save at overnight yesterday. Israel at the moment is just newspaper reports but it comes from the israeli ministry of health and large health provider. One called cloudy another one called mcabe healthcare. And what they're doing in. Israel is that there are electrically recording. All the vaccines as we will do in australia but it's integrated into people's medical records. So they really do have very good integrated electronic medical records and in fact one of the reasons. They're getting so much vaccine from pfizer is that they've done a deal with they. Give the data back to pfizer. So they've got what's called post marketing surveillance in. They get dot back on the performance of the vaccine. So what they've shown on and what they're saying it hasn't been published yet. Is that after the first. Does i think it's roughly in about two hundred thousand people aged over sixty five. But in those people compares to members of the health funds who have not yet had the vaccine. They've seen a significant reduction. Perhaps a fifty percent reduction in covid nineteen infection not disease but infection so this people specifically yes because they're rolling it out in priorities so older people in federal people are giving it first before others get it as well and so. This is their first data. It's a bit like. I don't know if you remember meghan. But near the beginning of the pandemic britain used their coordinated electronic records centralized electronic medical records in hospitals to be able to huge randomized control trials on a vast scale during the first wave. They were able to show that hydroxychloroquine didn't work. The anti retrovirals for hiv didn't work but that dixon methods to steroid did work and the turned around incredibly quickly during that first wave and is this huge advantage when you have a population willing to accept electronic medical records and that's what the israelis are doing. So they've got records of people who have not yet had the vaccine versus people have so if you like it's a real world not quite randomized but it's a real world trial and again not published in any scientific journal. Yet the early indications are that pfizer vaccine after the first does is showing reduced transmission to a significant extent which is really great. Yeah because the focus when we're talking about vaccines is so about a moving herd immunity which is obviously something that lots of people very keen for for all sorts of reasons but this is a really fast positive outcome where you literally saving people's lives. Yeah it's early could be wrong. Still got to run the ruler over it scientifically but it is a good early sign and presumably reflects the daughter. they're handing back to pfizer. So israel is getting the fires a shot and we've also had reports over the last few days that a man in the us who got the a shot has died shortly afterwards. And i think some question marks around whether or not it was anything to do with the shot or chance. What do we know about that. All we know about his newspaper reports from the new york times of luton to it. So it's really impossible to be absolutely sure what's going on if the newspaper and it's an issue. If the newspaper report is accurate then this is a doctor who got it. And three days after the vaccine started to develop little red spots on his skin cope tiki and these are assigned that. Your blood isn't clotting very well. He recognized that presented and his platelets had dropped precipitously and they find it very hard to raise his platelet levels. They thought this was an immune reaction which was reducing. His platelets platelets the little fragments. Which are essential for blood clotting and it does occur to drugs and it has occurred with covid nineteen by the way so covid nineteen disease itself can cause a precipitous. Drop to your platelets and serious hemorrhage and they were about to again. According to the newspaper report remove his spleen. Which is where they presume that the platelets were being broken down but he died of a cerebral hemorrhage beforehand. So the question here is causing effect. Is it the vaccine or is it a

Fiat Chrysler and PSA Group Merge With Eyes On the Future
"And this business. Wars daily on this thursday january fourteenth. Here's a word you hear a lot in january reset you know out with the old in with a new new year new me okay. I'll stop it with a new year cliche now. But two automakers are taking the opportunity to reset to a new level fiat chrysler and the psa group will officially merge and become still lantis this weekend. It's a move years in the making and it's go well. I survive second catch up now. All carmakers suffered in twenty twenty new car. Sales declined factories were shuttered. An inventory stalled all thanks to covid nineteen but fiat chrysler soon to be one. Half of sta lantis suffered a lot. It's us sales. Were down seventeen percent compared to twenty nineteen and when other automakers saw slight gains in their fourth quarters as the year ended fiat. Chrysler saw more read so beyond brushing off a disappointing year. The newly minted sta lantis has its work cut out for it as it contends with the likes of similarly sized general motors fiat chrysler and psa may eight million vehicles a year combined that gives it a slight edge on gm which sold about seven point seven million cars in two thousand nineteen but gm has something to lantis doesn't significant presence in china while gm sold more than three million cars in china in two thousand nineteen fiat chrysler in psa sold only about a quarter of a million combined.

Choose Your Family Wisely
"So this episode inspired by john. Laura who suggested that we dig deeper into a season one episode. We're looking at life priorities. So so this goes out to. John mara thank you john. Maura asked us a few questions in terms to dig a little deeper and the one that really stood out was like why do you have to choose your family in france. And how do you do with the backlash of choosing one or the other and we thought we we dig a little deeper into that with this topic and hobby. Yeah so we came up with that the ability to choose who you surround yourself with hoop which family which friend is around with. That's important you know and to why is it important. Well what's important is that you have the ability to choose many people. They they let other people choose for them you know. They're just going about their like you know. They want to coast through life without making decisions. They want other people to make decisions for them. But you know we we were twenty years ago. That's that was all man. You know what. I am the first one to be. You know when you give him to peer pressure and then certain people after a while people start categorizing all your this type of person. You're that type of person and then you start believing. Would other people say about you. Exactly how remember like in high school way back. We were like we're like social being just like regular people we want to belong right. I remember in high school I'll be the first one to say. Just like you hubby off by something all the leaders until they follow the neater but the important part is that that that we are the part that we want to share his. We have to recognize that relationships right. How you who you surround yourself with who you choose to build relationships with and julia choose to follow either. You're the follower your leader and unfortunately there's a lot of followers out there. When i was in high school. I remember my dad would tell me the gear on not recognize so for those. That don't know spanish. It's like tell me who you hang out with. And i'll tell you who you are you know and i saw my dad. You know. it's not my friends. It's me you know like i will go out with some friends and come home late or whatever it was i mean yeah i mean it's easy to look back and say like oh man you know i was wrong right there but we live forward. You know so a lot of people during that time like you know. Just go with the flow a lot of times. It's like oh let's do this. Let's do that. Let's do it and they're like this. There's times when when you need to be a follower and they're censoring. You need to be a leader because you're not born leader. I mean li leaders in leadership. Think those are qualities that you learn throughout life and And being a follower you're thinking and you're looking and you're observing you know who you're following you know and what you're learning from them And you know when you're in high school in your early twenties. Well you know you're you're still learning Still learning about life. You're learning how to reopen and early early early early. Eight seventeen sixteen folks. It's thirty s thing. I mean it's it's it's a process it's alive process you know and You know going back to To the original question you know. Why is it so hard. I think part of it is it might be are familial background might be our background going up wherever we grew up Because there might have been you know certain social normative where we grew up. you know. it's like you're only going to be this. You know you can only aspire to be that or you know what this is what your grandfather did. This is what your father did. So this is what you're gonna do. you know. I think that plays a part in it but once again there's gonna come a point in time when you had to put on the big boy pants and make a decision for yourself because ultimately you're no longer making a decision for yourself. You might be making decision for you and your partner for new and your and your family your kids or your your aging parents or your business you know and i think you know like i said that's a that's a process right there and how do you. How do you go about learning that process. Know we all mentioned you know. And i'm gonna mess him now mean i was. You know i was nowhere near leader. You know in my teens or twenties and i'll admit that because i was still learning. I was fumbling all over the place. Hell into my thirties. I was fumbling all over the place you know and but lisa was conscious and aware that and i was aware to know that i'm messing up not really anywhere until later on in life when i said okay you know. Now it's time to really focus

Healing from the root cause with mindset work, with Lana Shlafer
"Tell the audience a little bit more about you and your personal story. And i know you mentioned you've had a difficult past with your relationship with food in your body so talk about that so i mean i think that for a lot of people You know their health. Their eating their exercise their self-identity really stumps from things they experienced in childhood. Because that's where we learn how you know what is appropriate quote unquote way to behave. And how we form our priorities and ways of looking at the world so for me. I grew up in russia. And i came to the us when i was twelve. And so for me the big like shift and the pain point was that i was sort of ripped off from everything i knew in all my relatives and came even though life in russia was very difficult. It's what i knew. And i had friends and i was great at school. And you know all the things. And i get plopped in a country where i don't speak the language where i'm just here with my mom dad and brother and that's all the people i know and this entire site of the world and as i sort of tried to adjust to life here it was also middle school and a lot of teenage and body changes and troll norms and so for me and ended up manifesting that i started controlling food as the way i think to just feel like i've some control over my life and it was subtle at first where i just had a lot of emotions looking back. I didn't know that. At the time. I didn't know what to do with them. I obviously had hormonal. Thanks happening as well and a starting in high school. Where i just found that if i just eat less and i'm thinner i would get more attention and i also felt like i was more charge of my life and then it progressed through college way turned into binge eating and it got really bad when my parents got divorced so that my little world which was already not very stable totally apart even though was a great thing overall it was a challenging time. Being in a school a lot of pressure. I went to one of the top universities uc berkeley. I was taking a full load of classic. It was a lot of pressure. And so i feel like the eating and exercising was. It's always a double edged sword. And i talk about that in my books so and my philosophy often that it was the thing that was the weakest link that was sort of showing me the cracks. But it's also what brought in so much light. Rumi has great quote that it's through the cracks of the light enters and for me. It was this thing that i wanted to get rid of a body that i didn't like try to control the anxiety that i had the controlling be having my day in fifteen minute increments and everything that i need to eat to be planned out and it was so painful. I realized that it was a problem. I told my parents i should get checked into a like a facility. Because i'm not doing okay. And then being the the kind of russian culture. They're like you're fine. Just get through school. You know i. It led me to start therapy to learn about intuitive eating. Just start yoga to like it. Took me in the direction that now. I've been moving in for the rest of my life. But at the time i couldn't see the whole picture so was very painful. And it's one of my greatest accomplishments to this day and i have a lot of things that i described as miracles. My book is called manifest miracle. Because i literally could not imagine that at the time which is that i have not only completely healed whatever that means quote unquote my eating disorder. I have such a loving supportive relationship with my body. I eat what i want. When i want i move how i want. It's all about taking care of myself. And having had the pregnancy that a twin pregnancy on the single pregnancy all of that has taken deeper into honoring myself and creating a relationship with my reality. That really feels like it is based on love and support and understanding so the fact that i can say that from where i was seemed like a miracle like i thought that for the rest of my life. I'm going to have these issues. And i'm just going to try to manage them and it's really easy to feel that way when you're in it right so when you were in it. What were some of the things that you either experienced or you saw like. What were your on. The one hand motivating factors to get you out of that cycle. And then how did you start to get out of it.

It all started really in college for me. I felt like they all got
Indoor dining to resume in Philadelphia, with limits
"Deaths from Cove it every day. It's a jump of more than 200% from mid November, but there are some signs of progress in Philadelphia. The city's lifting some restrictions on indoor dining, as well as theaters in person college classes. Also, libraries are being reopened because of it. Our city Hall bureau chief, Pat Loeb, has the story. There will still be limits on activities only 25% of seating capacity for indoor dining tables of no more than four all family members and masks at all times, except when eating and drinking. Theaters are still limited to 10% capacity with no food or drink. Doctor, Farley says Endorsed social events of any size are still banned. This we think is the primary way that the virus is spreading right now, so we're not allowing those to restart. Now he thinks the restrictions imposed November 20th worked a slight bump in new cases he thinks is partly attributable to increase testing after the holidays. The percent of positive tests is down. But he stresses the need to continue to mask up in socially distance. Even as the vaccine rolls out, the city is still focused. On health care workers and nursing homes, but expects to move to the next priority group by the end of the month.

Best Buy's Plans To Encourage Shoppers This Pandemic Holiday Season
"It shaping up to be a bizarro holiday season to say the very least What efforts are you putting into to keep people safe but also to encourage shopping. I mean countries in rough shape. Yes so i'm going to start with Where you landed. Which is encouraging shopping. And i think that's less about doesn't have to be in the store and that's much more about. We want to be there for the customers. In whatever channel formed style they want. We want to be there for them. So everything that we're doing. We're leading with the customer experience and putting the customer in charge. They defined safety for themselves. Which means they get to be in charge of how they want to shop sorta to serve that customer need their three big focus areas the first. And you've already seen it. You've covered it at ad. Nauseam is the idea of the holiday starting sooner lasting longer seeing more promotional cadence throughout a longer period of time. Now part of that is so that you can actually spread out those peace and provide a safer experience over time. So many of the black friday deals you saw some of them already without Last week you're gonna see the ads. Come out toward the end of the month so everyone has full visibility to. What's in there. And i think what we're trying to avoid is the kind of natural response of lines at stores on black friday. That just can't happen and so instead. We're we're definitely using all the channels and all the tools to help get people what they need but do it in a little. Bit more protracted way which. Then the second major location is around fulfillment people want to get the stuff in whatever way they want forty percent of what we sold online and q two was picked up in store and so offering this combination of whether you want it on your couch whether you want at curbside or whether you want at the counter of the store we can do all those things for you and you're the one who gets to define and then finally you started with. It is the idea of creating a safe shopping experience. And that's been a priority from day one and we will continue to make it a priority that we have a maximum capacities are stores. We have cleaning. Protocols masks are required social distancing still very possible given the size of our stores. So we're we're trying to make sure the customer feels like they're in control and then making sure whatever they choose we. We delivered safely as possible.

"Dmitri why don't we just jump right into it and would love your kind of analysis of what has happened Know there's been a lot of A lot of controversy there seems to be consensus that The the hack is the work of the russians a country. At least that you're quite familiar with in terms of its tactics relative to this. Maybe just sort of set the lay the land if you would. Yeah absolutely so. I think it's important to understand that while this is a great situation and certainly Will likely be highly detrimental to our national security in the short and medium-term The not an act of war. This is not a digital harbor as as some politicians have been talking about this In the last few weeks the important thing to understand is from what it looks like right now and we have now your information on what this operation has been at least over. Last year is traditional espionage The targets have primarily been government agencies with some Technology companies is wild wrapped into it but primarily focused on saft of secrets that are as you can imagine of high priority on to russian intelligence If it proves to be the As is most likely the case right now so This was an dacia operation in incredibly well executed very very patient but at the end of the day the goal is staff that goes not destruction. The goal was not the leaking of that public information. There's small chance we may still see that at n than we have to reevaluate our assessment. But for now at least it looks like the exact that the us government the us intelligence community would be proud to have executed against our around adversaries. I'm now from a supply chain perspective. You know we do now understand that You know we have a major threat factor that most organizations have not been focused on which as their it providers like solar wins like resellers that sell their microsoft cloud offerings which you can be compromised Without really having any way to control for for that risk at least on the front end of the of the intrusion cycle. Are you at this point. Confident that it that it is the russians indeed so the interesting thing about this Particular intrusion is that the private sector really does not have attribution here unlike virtually every other operation. We have seen or last ten years. Where many in the private sector including Former company grabs strike was very good at attributed jackson in many of them very quickly this one because the tradecraft was so new and unique never before seen. There's really nothing to tie back to any previous operations. We have seen To really give us good understanding who the adversary may be. So all the attribution so far From government officials obviously intelligence agencies are very good at Attributing attacks based on your variety of different sources and methods that go well beyond just technical measures so for now at least You know we have to wait to see what the evidence is going to come out with regards to this. We may very well seen in the future. Will this operations justice department has been establishing Very good. I think precedent for indicting Foreign intelligence operatives on a regular basis for various various acts that they've done against this country in You for private sector companies. What what would you advise chief. Information officers chief information security officers others were involved in In at least trying to grapple with the consequences to their organizations and ensuring that the damage is limited the extent to which they can. I think this really underscores the topic that you talked On a number of occasions about which is that every organization out there needs to start with an assumption that already inside. this particular gates underscores. Just how futile. It is to try to build walls around the perimeter of you network because someone somewhere is going to get through through through new mechanism that you haven't even thought of or or can't control four so it could be supply chain attack next time. It could be zero table an ability. It could be a known vulnerability that you've got patched against that or could be an insider The number of methods that they can get in are numerous. And if you're trying to chase your tail china For closed down each one. You're always gonna fail because there's always gonna be one more thing that you adding accounted for this out there that you may not have even thought of And the reality. Is that if you start with assumption that capable adversary will get inside in. The east are for their activities within the network. That's when you can get an advantage. Where if you detect them quickly into jackson before joining damage you can prevent for from any damage any damage from being done. And if you look at how They executed this particular attack. Yesterday came in through the solar winds vulnerability where they came in through the reseller On the was selling office re sixty five and azure licenses to their customers but at the end of the day once they move past that initial doctor they started doing traditional things started maintain persistence trying to kill security products. Move laterally trump. and that's what you had the opportunity to detect them in fact some organizations have to talk to them and Jacqueline before any any bhakta Before they had any impact to the company.

"Be Your name. Matthew six nine. In the Lord's prayer, Jesus teaches that the first priority in praying. is to ask our heavenly father 'cause his name to be hallowed. In us in the church in the world everywhere. Notice that this is a petition. A request, it is not a declaration or acclamation. It is not an expression of praise but petition for years I misread the Lord's prayer as if it began with praise. Praise God. The Lord's name is hallowed revered honored. But it is not acclamation. It is supplication. It is a request to God. That he would see to it that his own may be hallowed. It is like another text. Matthew Nine thirty eight where Jesus tells us to pray to the Lord of the harvest that he would send out laborers into his own harvest. It never ceases to amaze me that we. We laborers. Should be instructed to ask the owner of the farm who knows the harvest better than we do to add on more farmhands. But isn't this the same thing we have here in the Lord's prayer Jesus is telling us to ask God, who is infinitely jealous. For the honour of his own name. To, see to it that his name be hallowed. Which means honored revered exalted a supremely. Precious Well, it may amaze us, but there it is, and it teaches us two things. One is that prayer does not move God to do things he is disinclined to do. He has every intention to cause his name to be hallowed. Nothing is higher on God's priority list, but we should ask anyway. The other is. That prayer is God's way of bringing our priorities into line with his. God wills to make great things the consequence of our prayers when our prayers are the consequence of his great purposes. Bring your heart into line with the jealousy of God to Hallo his name. And you will pray with great effect. Let your first and all determining prayer be for the hallowing of God's name. And your prayers will plug into the power of God's jealousy for his name..

So the best guess I can give you looking at the traffic from yesterday and what I've been told today by parish leaders. It's tens of thousands of people who have actually left southwest Louisiana.

It will probably be By nightfall tonight around 2000 or so that we have assisted in getting out and getting into a shelter, and and again, I think these numbers are going to go up after the storm.

"So if you think back back to last week when we got this rough transcript of the phone call the July phone call between Presidents Alinsky and president trump I made a call the call was perfect when the whistle blower reported he made center we had already known that president trump pressured the president's own ski to investigate the Biden's but what was revelatory about that rough transcript was that it showed not just this pressure but the president trump had offered the services of his own Attorney General Bill Bar to assist in this investigation. Matt's Petoskey covers the Justice Department for the post and he also brought up another investigation nations sort of an investigation into the origins of the FBI's Russia interference investigation and I guess he also thought Bill Bar could help with but there was a lot of corruption option having to do with the two thousand sixteen election against us and we want to get to the bottom of it and it's very important that we do thank the invocation tion of his attorney. General was one of the most notable in that rough transcript because we had already known so much about previously from reporting so so since then people have been wondering what exactly is attorney general bars connection with Elvis and so there have been some revelations about that over the past week so in the weeks after the Mueller investigation had formally concluded bill bar revealed that he was appointing this Guy John Durham to essentially investigate the investigators. We didn't know exactly what the concern was. John Durham had this broad mandate to just kind of go back over the muller probe and even before the Muller probe to the FBI investigation that became the Muller probe and look at whether anything was done wrong so we were aware that that effort was kind of ongoing. What we're learning now is that this hasn't just been John Durham fairly well respected. US Attorney investigating the investigators bill bar has personally personally inserted himself into this taking trips abroad to press his foreign counterparts to help investigate the investigators. We learned that president trump is calling his foreign counterparts particularly the Prime Minister of Australia to encourage them to help in. This investigation of the investigators of the new thing is the personal donal involvement kind of of Bill Bar in particular and also president trump these people who are very political you know what I think. When when we knew about this investigation of the investigators investigators bill bars personal involvement just strikes people as a little weird and like what's going on here and is it normal to have the attorney general unroll reaching out to foreign officials about this? I would imagine that something that's more in the purview of the State Department diplomats not at all the Attorney General's is personal involvement here in particularly going. Abroad himself is the unusual aspect of this. The Justice Department has an office of international affairs. I mean we I need foreign. Countries help with investigations sometime but there's just like a process that works on a much lower level to make sure that happens the attorney general personally personally going over and getting involved is pretty weird. The Justice Department says well. He's just trying to like make introductions. Pave the way for Durham but it's even in weird for bill bar to do that. We have people the Justice Department has people the FBI has people stationed abroad. Leila Tasha's stationed abroad. They're the ones who you know. Open the door. Make the introductions make the formal requests the Attorney General himself so that is what kind of unusual here and so in a broader context of this impeachment inquiry. How does this part about attorney general bar fit in so I think it fits in in a couple aways one. It just helps explain the Ukraine call a little bit not necessarily the Biden aspect of it but the other aspect of president trump asking Ukraine to help him investigate the investigators. We now know a little bit more about that. Effort lawmakers have shown interest to who in Bill Barr himself you know his role in all of this. We'll see how this ends up for him but keep in mind that his Justice Department is the one that it prevented this complaint from going to Congress in the first place. There's a lot of question about what his motives are here what he's up to and this is just you know another another data point of him fitting into president trump's desires to spark investigations both of his political opponents or of those who have investigated him and is there an expectation Haitian that Congress is going to ask him to come on the hill to testify both about his role in the release of the whistle blower complaint but also about all these meetings in conversations. He's been having with foreign officials. We will see I mean I would certainly expect that they're really going to press him to get on the hill because he's at the center of all of this but you know his. Justice Department has been at the center of resisting all kinds of congressional demands and I can't imagine that he would really be a star witness for them. I think in a lot of areas areas he would just refuse to talk about his conversations that are part of an ongoing investigation or refuse to talk about his dealings with the president or maybe refused to show show up at all. He's been held in contempt twice. I mean he seemed to have very little patience for Congress. Certainly they would want him to come and tell all but I would doubt he's going to do that. In a way that would satisfy the Democrats in particular so as you know ever since the release of the Mullahs report there have been a lot of democratic lawmakers who have basically suggested that it's William Bar is for lack of a better term in the Ken for the president so these new revelations about his interactions with foreign officials do do they give fodder to Democrats who think that the Justice Department right now is working for the president if you flash back to the Muller Report Art Bill Bar before the report is released puts out what he terms the principal conclusions of the report essentially says no no obstruction no collusion it closely hughes president trump's talking points and here we see another example of him doing something that president trump might view as discrediting muller's investigation he's investigating the investigators instigators and personally getting involved in that so in that respect yes democrats are going to seize on that and say this is not an independent justice department but this is not the leader of an independent Justice Department. Let me ask you about the Attorney General. He's going rogue. This is somebody who's just serving president trump's personal personal interest in in trying to this is Democrats of course but Democrats would say he's trying to hide Muller's true findings from the public and that now he's trying to shoot discredit muller going as a cover up of the cover up and that's really very sad for them and to have a justice department go so row well they have been for a while now just makes matters worse think though to be fair bill bar would say look have real genuine concerns about the origin of the millerbrook he would also say in to pass criticism. You can criticize my principal conclusions. I gave you all the hormonal report. Judge it for what Oh you want. I'm not trying to protect anybody. I think just from covering the apartment. A little bit of what is at play here is that bill bar ends up doing things that president is an trump wants but in that's in part because bill bar also wants those things. He's a very staunch launch believer in broad executive power. He doesn't believe Congress. Forget who is the President Congress shouldn't be messing around in the executive branch at all. He's a longtime longtime defense attorney. He takes dimmer view of what constitutes a Clyde than say a longtime prosecutor would so you'll have Democrats that same well. He's just in the can for trump but part of what is at play here. He's interest just kind of line up with trump's pretty well and he would say he has genuine interest in pursuing doing these things..

It's not good for for society but they said look this is this is this division is set up in a certain way. We've had a lot of input from. I'm from outside organizations. That told us this is how it should operate for various reasons and you know we've we feel strongly that we've taken safety as our first priority and you know Uber feels like it's taking all the right actions that that includes things like rolling background checks their drivers buttons within the APP where you can alert authorities if something happens in a better tracking systems they have a way of looking now to see if Herreid goes off course or They have a new code they. They're offering to make sure you're getting in the right car. You know what you're getting into a stranger's car. That's not an uber so they have taken a lot of actions actions to help ensure that this is this is functioning the right way but you know that's that's sort of a different picture from these Special Investigations Unit's people who are doing the the job every day who feel like company business concerns are also at the forefront of how this unit operates. I also think that what's interesting in here is that this is all kind of wrapped up in how uber thinks of itself as a company like you always hear them talk about. We are a tech company. I need that the drivers are not our employees their contractors and we're basically a company that facilitates transactions between riders and drivers favors but I think that that puts them in a particularly a precarious position when they're trying to sort out these very the real world safety issues with very serious implications while still trying to maintain that they're ultimately not responsible for making sure that every right thank you write. It presents a unusual problem that we haven't seen before the the new. GIG economy is working itself out in many ways. What is the the responsibility of these companies that arrange these things to ensure that the product is safe and is what customers wanted and expected and generally the courts have held that companies like Uber or a marketplace and the goods that are used and sold through that are the the responsibility of the seller and the buyer in this case the passenger and the and the and the driver in so overs benefited from that position in the world were courts have held that but it is working itself out there in there fighting a bill here in California that would make these contract drivers more like employees and that carries a lot of risk for them among them as liability risks but also it's expensive. They're going to have to pay for a lot more labor. Costs for these people will and so. There's a lot of reasons for them to feel like this isn't the right course of action drivers like flexibility if you make them like employees as we might have to have shifts but of course it also comes back to this what's responsibility if their employees to you the quality of the rides.

I thought this was super super cool just watching how this was set up, but you might I mean that's the thing is like apple building for everybody because you might be in an accident, or you might have surgery or you might you might be able to baby. And you look at maps, and you don't have to go away. Don't just need to get to something at the screen. Yeah, you're absolutely right. Because there's so many times, I increase change accessibility features like I like make the funds just because I don't wanna I can see better with doing that. And this is like you're thinking about the future. But also I think that you're absolutely right. Any of us might at some point in time apple chance to if you go back and listen to a couple of vector got to talk about trouble who's VP of software about privacy and about to speak to Sarah Helen germs director of accessibility policy at apple, and she calls it a customizable customization. If you can make the fun bigger or darker, like it's, it's a lot their whole goes to allow you to interact with your device in the way that his best to you at any moment. I like that. Well, we do need to talk about. I've had an I o s but before we do that. I did not mean to do that is the funniest thing ever. Yeah. It You are. you are looking adorable. This is. We have a few moments on the privacy. Oh. Them birds for ya. I'm just so much happier. Now you like. You like these. Okay, so not like listen. Not happening every hour.

"There's certainly yeah. More tie ins that could happen there. If I think. And when it comes to the way, apple updates their apps, a lot of is probably gonna have to do with. Priorities. And if there's a big push for their first priority Laurie. What are you saying our priority money? You are their biggest priority. But, but more more people that are not using their argue. So it's weird how that works. I keep telling me that and I just don't understand what that Aaron Pierce into your interest, Mike. I think air Pearson that all the stuff wasn't yet available through catalyst. He couldn't do his apps yet. Oh, hoping that changes it could get better. That's that's exciting. Okay. Good. Well, let's see what else. Sidecar sidecar, everybody's excited about sidecar. They not that it wants a sad car side. Ooh sidecar basically lets you use your ipad as an external display for your MAC. And that goes as far as letting you use your ipad as a drawing tablet for your MAC. This is super exciting. I would say, for digital artists, and a pretty cool feature for anybody who sometimes needs an external display. That we've seen some third parties offer apps and hardware, that do this. And now apple is doing it themselves. So I don't know. I'm I'm excited to give this feature. Try really excited about it. I have used a wake-up whack on tablet for years, whenever I'm doing graphic design stuff and to be able to use my apple pencil, and I had to do that is super exciting because I never could afford a sin teak, tablet that has the actual display right in front of me. So this is really I'm pumped about this personally. Only one that whenever apple puts in a new feature. I feel bad for everyone that developed max apps that will be able to do that feature. Like thirty apple only those thirty percent. Like even on these, if you take Luma display or something. This will only work with MAC and the other one's work with PC as well. And also these only work with pencil fingers, I just always feel a little bit sad. What you do with apple sherlock's you, turn around and Moriarty them. Okay. So that's interesting. Renee, I didn't know that note there. Yeah. Is this, so you have to use apple pinzel period, or you have to use apple pinzel? If you wanna do drawing stuff, so I can give you a quick, a quick example, you, if you don't have an apple pencil, or you're using an ipad that doesn't support apple pencil. There's a frame around the outside of the screen again, let me point out, this is developer beta one things might change by the time they get released to the public, but there's a frame around angrier screenwriters to Laurie that it has just a handful of controls that you can tap on, like go back go forward reduce screen or something like that. It's a very minimum. Touch features that it's like in a frame around the screen. But if you want to scroll, if you wanna touch on something if you want to click on something, you have to use apple pencil for all of that stuff. So it is very much apple didn't want you to be able to use pinchers Yuna window. But you can't like again. I think I think pinch zoom is actually a glitch because I'm not sure that, that's a feature that they're planning on, including in, in the end. Of course, you know, we'll know more as as it gets gets going. But it apple they, they've always said that they don't think that the MAC a touch screen MAC experiences. Good. This is their way of giving giving us what we want, which is the touch screen Mak, but they're also saying like using your finger to try to navigate a computer system is just not good. So we're going to tell you to use a n apple pencil instead because you'll have a more precise pointer clicker for that. So it makes a lotta sense I think, but Rene and I actually got a chance to see a demo kind of forces you to use the pencil. It's not like you could you can't really choose. You could use it, as a second display without the apple pencil, which is all people want. But you can't use it as a second. This makes so much more sense now..

"To that user. That's in our app, and so that will get easy so that no matter what Appier launching into watch stuff as long as a developer sets it up. Then you'll be able to switch to that profile, I'm worried because of net Netflix and apple not. Playing well together. That's not going to work for Netflix. And like that's the biggest one for me that I really want to, to happen with that user switching because that is one where I actually do have multiple accounts whereas most other. Any other subscription services? I have just sort of like my own account. So everybody send your send your emails to Netflix and ask them to please make sure that they support this feature and TV was thirteen maybe that'll help. Yeah. And we talk about. I know this was one of the things that net flicks. I feel I think others field does wrong, which is when you're scrolling through net flicks, it shows you a video preview on some stuff, and it will play the I, I was the only one that was bothered by hate. It also. Yeah. So much. I hate it, does it play sound. I don't remember play sound though, when downloaded that beta pre preview yet. So I don't have a personal experience with that. But to your point Rene show me the video that's fine. But please don't play the audio that messes with me really bad. I find myself, it's basically giving more. Old tons of web pages where you're like page would suddenly play sound and you were just all Dr. Wait. Where's the audio off, you find yourself like skipping ahead as quickly as possible? Because you're you, you don't one audio to click to start in. So you're looking through these different, you know, movies into. I'm not even going to read the summary, because the summary, especially something that's kind of like louder jarring or scary or like you know, you're late at night and you don't wanna hit to wake up. I have for Netflix with something happens, I turn away and then like Ono it's going to start playing. Yeah. And then have to move it or leave it or like start Brown. And some people are really not into like horror stuff my partners one. He does not like scary movies at all. And so there have been times where we're scrolling through, and then some scary movie starts playing, and he's like, I don't watch this, and I'm like, I promise I wasn't try to watch this. It's just auto three. Rain. So I think that it defeats its purpose. It's your now leaving the page faster not paying attention to what you are. Because of that, like on a screen, I'm like that. I'm like, no, I must leave. I'm not gonna even be able to it because this is not. Or I'm trying to keep the kids asleep. Right. You know, I'm watching while someone else's having a meeting and I don't want to, you know, suddenly have music playing in the background. The other stuff come into TV, apple arcade, whenever that launches a support, Gary excited about Athlon Cade me too. I'm excited about the games that are going to be made for, for sure. Xbox PlayStation, game, controllers are going to be supported, which I know people are super pumped about my husband's really excited about that. Yeah, by the way, it's not just TV apple didn't announce, but those two controllers are also supported in, in the beta right now. They're also supported on eyeless thirteen TV arm. Sorry. I Pat o' s. Interesting. Yeah. And then let's do MAC. OS Catalina Laurie before we move on real quickly cut point out, just a couple of small things that I think are pretty exciting. There's going to be control center. Apple TV I'm not even sure what that's going to look like, but I'm kind of excited about that. A so we're gonna get call up a control screen control center screen to quickly access certain controls, volume and stuff. We're listening to music, which by the way music the new feature coming to the music app is scrolling. Lear IX for wind songs are playing so you can carry key on your apple TV on your ears so excited about that. I've already use this on IOS. And it's my favorite thing in the world. It looks fantastic..

"It seems. Thing, but such a big deal and what I like lit Cal. It it's not just the tips. If you have seven people. And he wanted to Georgia it works. Great. Where's my notes out? They finally bringing all these. And I just wanna be able to say at to note, blah, blah, blah and show me my notes because maybe there's something in there, that's important. And like Mike, I went out without my phone. I don't know that to me, that's that's gonna be a lot of words on the page. And I know you know, we can look at a lot of things with words on the page like safari a pages, for example. But that's another one of those user experiences that I think, Apple's probably gonna postpone a little bit until they can really perfect how that looks on your of. Worse off. Yeah. I like to just text myself when I need to. And so you could say message to Mike sergeant I'm going to start. I'm gonna search any, my notes to Georgia, Georgia state me, and then we'll sort of have that going. But those are those are the big things we certainly touched on there with watch OS. Let's move onto the next smaller one, which is TV OS. I think the big deal here is multi user support, what this is super cool. So if you're wondering what the heck multi user support means it's the idea that everybody in a household might have different interests and different shows. And so you're not watching the same shows and right now, you turn on the TV the apple TV and your recommendations, and your photos and all this stuff is tuned to everybody, who's using the TV. It's not split up between people, so you're going to be able to switch between different users and that will allow the apple TV to do a better job of, of controlling. Contents that it shows you. But what super cool is that this extends to developers. So I was just reading about the new framework for user support that makes it so that developers can take advantage of this. And you can think of an like Hulu in Hulu. You can set up a profile for yourself and for other people, and then it keeps track of what you're watching their yada, yada, yada, right now, if you go to the TV app, and you launch you, then you have to choose your profile in the future, Hulu would basically be able to say okay, I can look at the user that's logged in, according to TV OS, multi user support, and then automats sink that up with our app and switch.

"Which means the developers, no longer have to deliver a full on app that then has an extra watch OS app. Tagged off tags along with it. So you can just download apps directly on your watch. That doesn't mean they have to show up on the on as well. And so not only does that help in terms of watch OS just having those apps that you want to. But folks, who make Iowa's apps can then have thinner apps, because they don't have the watch OS component tacked onto it so altogether. Dependence day, it's, it's a pretty neat feature there that just makes it easier to, I think develop directly for the watch without having to consider the things between the two and to leave your phone at home. But you don't have to you worried. I don't have my phone. I can't just all this up the whole world is terrible a Robert whistling sound now you can just have a great app. You can just tap it sell it directly on your watch. Why do people need to know what our it is? I'm sorry continue. Nobody can remember like the iphone used to be slaved to on MAC or windows reminded that to install apps, you that, that to sink you needed that, to do to manage it. And then I o s five came around I cloud, free and all that. And it feels like step by step like last. Well, last year hardware wise, we got LT. And this year we're getting independent apt to just like step by step. It's growing up in suits. Little grownup thing that can be all on its own gizmos. Gets most giving with all the some separate separate things that you can do exclusively on apple watch winter. We going to get to the point where you don't need an iphone to set up your apple watch because we're pretty close right now. It's just a screener so small, that doing a lot of the sinus stuff. A lot of the arrangement stuff is teen is they're getting better at that, where he could have the option to be able to do it one way or another. We're definitely getting a lot closer to that. As, as a as an option. I even think right now, I, I know that apple will have plenty of reasons why they don't think it's a good experience yet, but they could right now make it an option. So if you don't have an iphone, if you have an Android phone instead running to happen yet. Yeah. To build the app for Android, which is a lot of where I think they would rather wait until, like, right now, the sim card is still bound to the iphone SIMS you can't do things like MS without the iphone. But I think as soon as it's got independence like its own Isam. They don't have to build the Android app and put all those resources into just like whoever. Once it could come by. Exactly. That's that's interesting. I hadn't considered that. 'cause I the other day I knew that I was going to pretty much all the stores, except for WalMart now in my town, have Apple Pay enabled. And so I was like, oh yeah, I'm gonna be cool, and I'm going to be brave. So I'm just gonna leave everything home, except for my apple watch and go to the store, and I did. And it went perfectly fine. It was really nice. It felt cool anxious. I well, I was because I thought, oh, well, what if I forgot to add my card to my watch and all these different things that could have gone wrong, or if there was some sort of, like. Approve this thing, and it wouldn't just work on the watch have to leave and everything worked out, just fine. And so I was pleasantly surprised by that. It was really nice. And so, I like that more and more. You know, we've talked about this before we're getting a device that s- be able to work independently. This also includes Siri being able to show like full website results on the app. What a great thing instead of having a legible. Yeah. Voice memos is on the, the watch now, which is had people excited and also people like never get more excited than when they hear about a tip calculator..

So, so I'm sitting there and listening. I love all the stuff. It's really, really great with you, Laura. Love the cycle try do. Yeah. Then then it went through the like when the reminders to stand up and stuff, and it's the bird signal the little and I looked and I just my head. Just went. Was like I was like, who, who thought of that? That is a horrible horrible idea. I all I thought to myself, as I am going to punch someone in a restaurant, the noise that was going to go off. When everybody's Robin calls go off. I went and that is a horrible idea to have a bird set. Like you're not house like you're at a restaurant, you're at someone else, and you're gonna hear all these little bird sounds go off every hour. I'm like, no, that's not okay. We're about the topic version, just tapping, I tapped, that should but whoever thought of making a bird voice, so that, while we're in a movie theater or doing until to run for his damn life right now. I'm going to punch someone. I the noise really irked me and I went people are gonna forget that it's on. It's going to be all over the place. Get a punch today. Lynch's Rene with the next. Idea Aristide just I thought it was a joke. That's a joke. Right. They're just saying that. And then there's no just Georgia. Are you saying that you heard the bird call, and you were you were thinking that's going to go off and you're going to think that someone's like whistling at you or you just find it annoying? And so, you know, pipe, I do not think anyone is whistling at me, the wrong, I gonna happen all the time in different areas of your someone's gonna have every hour, someone at work is going to get one of these watches Nonni better. Remember when the Samsung galaxy phone? Years ago, it had those bloop, bloop sounds, and nobody turns them off, and you're sitting in restaurants airports at around your like bloop, bloop, bloop. The blue. They just pointed to the when I o s made the new clicking for the keyboard, and everybody had that on. Kick say do if you're listening to this show, you should definitely go to YouTube and look for this episode because in the past like ten minutes. Georgia has made some wonderful not ten minutes. It's not like the past four minutes. Georgia has made some hilarious reactionary faces as Rene has whistled she just looks very annoyed and I'm very concerned. And this reminds me Georgia of your campaign to destroy all ipads connected to apple pencils. It was just to jiggle. Offense. Where we go. That was my, my one. That was my one of the few minutes. I was like, yeah, yeah, yeah. And then I went with. So what we've learned is that Lori to feature. She loves George has a feature. She as she hate the features that Lori loves futures. Those were amazing features. I there's a lot amazing coming at us. What about the app store? Interesting. So now this is kinda neat the app store is separated from. So there's a watch OS apps store, which means the developers, no longer have to deliver a full on app that then has an extra watch OS app. Tagged off tags along with it. So you can.
