"Do you think iran's gonna get nuclear weapon in this administration. I don't know that they'll get it on their watch. But they'll make real progress They're going to have to. What do you need to build a nuclear weapon. You need to make sure that you can do it in hidden places So there is no one comes after it second. You need to have the money tools and resources to build out the infrastructure to do that and then you need the political cover that gives you the space to do it by demonstrations going to provide them each of those three things and how we starved the iranian regime. They're on their last four billion dollars. In foreign exchange reserves. It took us two and a half years to put that much pressure on them at. It saddens me because the people in the gulf parts and friends that we have in israel and america will be more risk as iran continues to move close to nuclear weapon. Charlie even as they get close even when they don't have the complete cycle their capacity course increases the capacity to say that if you don't do what it is we'd like you to do israel if you don't do what you like us to to the saudis then those countries will feel under the thumb because they know arana's even even if iran is only on the cusp of getting those weapons systems and they will have much more leverage in proxies to do

And certainly validation of the institutional narrative was that one hundred and twenty two million of that two hundred and twenty three billion overall came from institutions. Now the number that people were most focused on was revenue. Revenue was one point eight billion for the quarter compared to one point three billion for all of last year and something that will be absolutely shocking to wall street. The company actually had a net income of seven hundred and thirty million to eight hundred million. Basically this is exactly what the crypto kids knew was coming but still caught.

I the opportunity of joining amazon web services in its early days back when it was only a four billion dollar business in was part of the original team that was tasked with working with the security ecosystem and helping them that are understand how their value propositions could apply to public cloud customers in particular airbase environments so there is a big pivot that a lot of the scared ecosystem partners had to do to. You know how their current solutions that were typically built for data centers needed to evolve and kind of re architect and rethink around what value they can bring the public cloud and ultimately how they had architect solution to be Well architect for those types of environments so that tend to be a big pivot for a lot of customers so it was great to see the industry evolve you know from the very mature data center. Well established commercial solutions in how they pivoted to the startups. That took specific Look almost from scratch around what they can do uniquely. And that's where some of the very first cloud security posture management tools kind of popped up way back in two thousand fifteen.

Gone Fishing

Why It Matters

Gone Fishing

"Can be tough to try and make lifestyle choices that will help build a healthier world over and over we find out that one of our habits is contributing to climate change inequality or the destruction of earth's bio-diversity even habits. We thought were healthy. Take seafood for years. We were told that fish were an important part of a good diet but now we are learning that many of the fish we are used to eating or threatened species. Seafood is the largest traded food commodity in the world and it plays an essential role in our global diet for some people. Fish are a luxury but in many of the world's poorest and fastest growing populations it's a matter of survival at the same time relentless industrial fishing methods are pushing many species to the brink. If things don't change our fishing habits could devastate ocean bio-diversity and deplete a resource that humanity needs in order to survive. Fish are in trouble but the solution may not be what you expect. I'm gabrielle sierra. And this is why it matters today. Will there always be plenty of fish in the sea. What's over seventy six percent of the world's fish now or fish fished capacity overfished or collapsing and fifty years. The earth has lost more than half of its life. We completely destroy the natural balance of fish in the world's oceans. So are we going to run out of fish. If the current way that humans are fishing continues in the current practices remaining unchecked. That doesn't set up a good scenario for our future. My name is michelle curic. And i'm the vice president for ocean policy at the world wildlife fund. In the united states the pressure the amount of fish the frequency the quantities. That fishermen are taking out a really causing many stocks to be in very bad shape in terms of their future viability. I mean fish is one of the most heavily traded food commodities that we have fishing really is a big business in two thousand eighteen. The global export market reached an estimated value of one hundred and sixty four billion dollars. Asia is the leading region in the fishing industry with china south korea japan taiwan and one outlier spain fielding the most vessels globally the european union the united states and japan or the three places that consume the most fish by volume. And it's really valuable. Many different species are very high. Cost so there is a lot of profit to be made in catching fish. We have these manmade causes. These drivers these threats that are caused by you know just better technology. Bigger boats better refrigeration easier methods of transport and we have some of the man induced natural factors like climate change which are also changing the water quality the composition the affiliation of the water. That fish call home and some species can't adapt that well they move to different parts of the ocean to have a more hospitable climate and that then raises lots of political issues about get to catch. And how many if you've ever gone fishing. You know the drill a rod align a hook some bait and maybe a boat but modern day industrial fishing looks nothing like that. The boats and many fishing fleets are essentially gigantic floating factories inside. They have all the machinery necessary to process freeze and package. Hundreds of tons of fish per day guided two schools of fish by sonar and spotter planes. Some of these ships dragnets that are over a mile long sneering whole schools of fish that thereafter and many that they aren't after to some of the methods are shocking take bottom trawling which involves dragging massive nets across the ocean floor in the hopes of sweeping up fish the process destroys coral and other ocean floor ecosystems that are essential for all kinds of life just for one catch s fish populations decline these fleets are having to travel further from land and drag their nuts deeper in order to reach their targets when it comes to fisheries. There are two things that are important to know first about one in three fish. Stocks is overfished at that means that we are catching more than the population is able to produce by his branch. I'm the director of fisheries at the foot and organiz ation of the united nations. And i'm also a professor at the university of exeter in the uk to have an analogy with john king. We are eating into the capital rather than just using the interest that doesn't mean that we collapsing. The population is just. This is not sustainable. We need actually to change that. But we see a dichotomy of what is happening. Between developed countries and developing countries in developed countries. We see increasingly an improvement in sustainability status in developing countries. We see the opposite. We see it decrease in sustainability increasing volume of problems. Those are not easy to resolve.

"We're hearing the Paul W. Smith show news talk seven sixty W. J. R.. there is a rally I want you to know about tomorrow I I don't know if you get a chance to read a few days ago a couple days ago Mitch albums column the awful new normal of Michigan's auto no fault laws he was very vocal about this law before it to as he put it passed by cover of dark in the middle of the night without any public hearings passing a bill that killed the law after decades of existence the law that would take care of so this is actually we had paid in twenty four billion dollars in to the fund to cover ourselves I remember this discussion at the time and saying wait a minute they're not really cutting our insurance cost very much because the amount of money that was paid in our premium to cover this catastrophic coverage for life was very little comparatively speaking but it became what people glom dom to politicians certain industry people business people certain lawyers and and this thing was this thing was wiped out as a result if a child lives in a home where no one has has auto no fault insurance that child of injured by a car no longer gets lifetime medical benefits instead the benefits are capped at two hundred fifty thousand dollars in something called the assigned claims plan well people are not happy about this including people who brought all of this to our attention actually many years ago she was Erica major then she's now Erica Nader Colston she is the president of walk the line to S. C. I. recovery in Southfield they're doing the the walk tomorrow the thousands of people expected to March and Erica would March if she could but she uses a chair to get around thank goodness that gives her mobility but this is a problem you tried to alert us to a long. time ago Erica good morning to you. hi Paul thanks for having me out again it's been a few years but I appreciate your continual coverage of this really important issue it's been too long and as you know these these stories come in and they don't go away but we keep could charging on with all the things we're doing so I'm sorry it's been so long but you've been faring extremely well. well in. we have been we haven't obviously this latest bill that was passed is extremely devastating for a number of reasons but just to touch on matches the article and the the little girl that is not alone in being impacted by that portion of the bill just to sum it up for people who didn't read the article there's a little girl she follows her father crosses the street gets hit by a car and now she is in need of help and we'll need it the rest of her life and she won't get it because of these changes in the law. yeah and previously to these changes of this little girl had been hit only two months prior she would have had a lifetime medical benefits covered under the under our missions I don't know about this now she'll be capped at two hundred fifty thousand dollars what made his article fails to really point out well I ever at all possibly is that to to relationships they're being really destroyed here one obviously is. the impact of the medical expenses of this little girl who's only three and what that will do to her family the other is the unfortunate reality for the gentleman who hit her because now under this new law her family will sue him for her outstanding medical expenses and he will be financially devastated and that's a risk that we are now all in unless we purchased extreme amount of liability insurance so you know we all think that we're immune and none of us will be catastrophically injured and maybe many of us will avoid that that fate we also all things that will never be at fault but. road there's a player in the summertime we glanced away from the road to get our phone or GPS map an accident happens and we could one day be the the asphalt driver in a catastrophic injury and we are now at risk for being suit. you know it if I'm remembering correctly looking back Erica Nader Colston with us and there's a walk tomorrow at ten AM to show the rally in Lansing to show a lawmakers the dissatisfaction with what they did it again as Mitch puts it in the middle of the night without any public hearings and in to demand changes we can go back it was it it's almost sounded like a bill of goods the way this thing was promoted it's easy to get people upset about how much they pay for insurance because our auto insurance is ridiculous in the state of Michigan but they led us to believe it was ridiculously high because of this one portion of the insurance and that wasn't true if I remember when I saw it broken out the amount that was set aside in our premiums was was not that much to get this kind of protection. that's absolutely true and what's important to know is that this evening that you might be our only on the personal injury protection portion of your belt which is about thirty percent of your bill and. and there's also a mandatory increase in liability coverage so what you may see as a decrease in your personal injury protection you you might see as an increase in the cost of your liability insurance it's like squeezing a balloon right. the cost may go down in one area but it's going to go up in another regular thing that's important to understand is that we are now getting being given a choice and so. you're not necessarily saving money or getting a lower cost of insurance you're buying less insurance. so if it's like going to the store and buying half a loaf of bread and saying I save two dollars you don't really save two dollars you got half a loaf of bread you got less so you get less urine's you get less insurance and it cost you less it was added frankly at the time we talked about it if you and I didn't get a chance to I don't think but but we talked about it on my show and it it it was it was the closest thing to a scam or

discussing on the phone about the movement and specifically ask them for about the Chinese government and I was wondering why we've seen them changing policies were we pulled ourselves out of pushing into the economy here and we have situations where of the government of China has set up the government that their funding the fail so that their underlying contract or Sam well the where the latter I'm not understanding the former point can you say that again specifically we changed our our points of interest within these economy and aren't following through with specific now when you when you say we you mean our government has withdrawn from these economies what do you mean now we have a real during the bush two thousand two thousand six there were some initiative started that it seems that the current administration's but on one specific what are we talking about I don't I'm not familiar with this well we were talking about you know the government of China going I know that the government trying to what was it the bush was doing in these countries well they were developing the actual trade pact that make sure that the American interests within these economies is actually taking care of I mean a lot of local I. what China is doing is are going in and they're saying to a poor country African countries in particular but also in South America Hey look what do you need okay we need a four billion dollar loan okay we want that port as collateral knowing damn well that these corrupt regimes can't pay for it so they give the four billion dollars they can't pay for in China says thanks and they move a a carrier not a carrier but the move the battleship or something into that port and I'll take it over that's what's going on I don't know exactly how to respond to that but we need to do something they also have other other deals I've talked about it before they've contracted with that Panama to run both sides of the Panama Canal the Chinese actually run both sides of the Panama Canal so there's a lot we should be doing that we're not doing and I'll tell you one of the problems in response to John is as with the present the United States was under so much attacked domestically fighting for his survival quite frankly and that of his family each and every day that our enemies are thrilled about this our enemies are trying to wait about our energy and our enemies are trying to take advantage of it these people in Congress these Democrats in these people in the media these phony journalists they are truly harming this country at a very very dangerous time in our history I'm not familiar with what specific program you're talking about and I don't think you are because I've actually three times I'm really not sure but nothing prevents American businesses from going into these countries in trying to conduct business either all right my friend thank you for your call I appreciated Mike Charlotte North Carolina Sirius satellite go right ahead good evening mort good evening and talking about the Russians Russians the Chinese morning to move in and take it over and what they'll do is they will close the economic system there and the freedom of the economy and how long will it take The New York Times or one of these idiot socialist Canada clones democratic song to come in and say you're free at home he doesn't work here no I I I don't really think they would do that it's too obviously foolish I mean when somebody moves their military to a country crushes that I don't think the response is going to be see capitalism doesn't work stable to do the attack the president member anything anybody does sets evil or negative are troubling or whatever it's trumps fought so they'll say trump should have been stronger trump's relationship with G. isn't that good trump should have done this that and the other meanwhile the Chinese expanded massively under the Obama administration they moved into the South China Sea we're billing those phony islands they stole an enormous amount of our technology and trumpets stood up to them so I think they're more likely to attack the president the United States directly well I mean it it sounds okay in not one but you know one of the two was going home it's terrible and by the way have you heard a single one of these Democrats talk about any of this no one of one of the talking about talk about anything that Israel is now what what are they talking about trump the racist that's it that's it they don't want to talk about real things to they have no answers there are no answers about North Korea they have no answers about Iran they do more appeasement more appeasement with money you know pay off the terrorists what China they have absolutely no response they sell at

"Right now. So let's get started less. Find solutions. Let's not continue to disappoint. The people. We work for by not showing the ability to work together in Ronald Reagan back in the nineteen eighties. The dangers of cutting a deal on one part of immigration before securing about that in two thousand thirteen we passed it major immigration reform bipartisan Bill, which took everything that was a holistic approach. It was security forty four billion dollars for security. It was a pathway forward. It was a q- number that you basically got in the back of the line. We did everything humanly possible to look at the whole immigration problem. So on top of that, nobody if they went through ten years of doing everything they were supposed to earn learn English basic and get a job pay taxes. Get in the back of the line. When your time came you still couldn't be citizen until we had to total border's secured. Sure. But if we're going to have this fight back and forth if we're not gonna fix. One, and we won't think one takes care of the other so security only without some four. But I think the president has his indicated that he's willing to negotiate a bigger package and immigration. But here's a question for you, Senator Manchin, you have voted as we pointed at the top of this consistently for a border barrier. Many of your democratic colleagues Nancy Pelosi in particular don't want to have anything to do with that. What do you know that they don't see about a border barrier? The only thing I know is I had eight hundred thousand people that were furloughed we're not getting paid. I had twelve thousand West Virginia, people were hurting why why why is it border barrier acceptable to you? But it's not acceptable to so many of your Democrats. Why do you see value in? Why do you see value is border because I've looked I've talked to custom border patrol people. And these are the professionals that I rely on. They showed me and told me what needs to be done. There needs to be some we already have six hundred plus miles of sometimes lost an all you're calling. Well, I think it's lost. Because now it seemed like the board is going to protect us from within seven hundred miles or so of wall or a fencing or whatever I'll call it a secured structure is going to be catchall do all that's not the case. There's an awful lot more. We can stop. Most of our ports of entries were coming through. Can't we have the screening the new sensors things of that sort ports of entry were big. I think that what the president is proposing a package that includes Acerra mansion, we're good friends. He's been consistent on this. I frankly think and this is his position has been consistent. Many of the Democrats in the last few months have looked at the president making this a big issue in his campaign, and they decided well we can't before that anymore. Two thousand thirteen virtually every democrat. Who's still in the Senate voted for seven hundred miles of barriers and a whole lot more money than anybody's talking about. Right now speaker Pelosi has been for berries in the past the whole idea that somehow six hundred and fifty or seven hundred miles of barriers are appropriate that seven hundred and two miles or immoral. Incredibly interesting place to draw your line about what's moral, and what's not moral. I think this debate got way too political. I do think let me say get I think the president has shown more room will instable so for than others have. But we need to solve this. We need to solve in three months. It may look like right now that the the speaker Pelosi got what she wanted to open the government again. And.

I think in this case this is a species where we should preserve it by feeding on dead meat in captivity. But I don't think that organisms should suffer that excruciating agony of screwing infection of literally being eaten alive by maggots for any longer. And this raises a particular ethical challenge beyond what I what I just said. And that's and that is we would all agree that if a child is drowning in a lake it's our obligation to dive in and save, and that's true.
