Miles miami is miniscule. Just three point four square miles with a population of only two hundred twenty people.

The next day on july eighth the boat pulled into a dock into hiti and miles was the only person on board. He planned to visit with his girlfriend. Erica we see when he picked her up from the airport. She thought it was strange. That miles was allowing. Erica knew there had previously been tension between miles bison for months miles had complained about his brother over the phone and email so for erica. It probably wasn't odd. That miles would want time away from his brother but it was strange that bison would abandon his own yacht when erica asked about it. Miles seemed unfazed he told her. Bison and serena were on riot heya. Miles had sailed to tahiti alone to meet her. The explanation made enough sense. So erica didn't ask about it again. She and miles boarded the hukou matata and sailed off intent on spending a romantic week on a nearby island. but the trip wasn't the getaway.

Eventually miles changed his mind and agreed to stay together on july fifteenth. Erica flew back to the united states. She still hadn't seen bison or serena but given the tension with miles.

He ducked the catamaran in tahiti soon afterward he flew home to the bay area back in the states. He added odd in his relationship with. Erica continued to run hot and cold some days.

Big Oil Evaded Regulation And Plastic Pellets Kept Spilling
"Plastic pellets have been spilling into oceans and rivers. The world over where birds and fish eat them. They are the building blocks of all plastic melts 350 of them. You get a yogurt cup 1000 gets you a water bottle. But an NPR and PBS frontline investigation found the oil and plastic industry has long known there an environmental problem. NPR's Laura Sullivan brings us this story about how the oil in plastic industry evaded regulation. Despite decades of spills. You probably haven't spent a lot of time standing on train tracks looking at your feet. We're looking at the edge of a highway outside of plastic manufacturer. If you did, there's a good chance you'll see them little plastic pellets. This is Kocsis Creek, and we're looking at fresh pellets. It has fallen out of the Terps. Ronnie hammering is standing on state Road 35 in Southeast Texas, rising four square miles. Behind him is the petrochemical plant, Formosa Plastics. And they're not just here. There over there. They're important Lakha. You're gonna find him down the road Hand looks not an anti plastic environmentalist. He's a former supervisor who worked to Formosa for 25 years, And while he worked there, he says he was told to cover up spills of classic pallets. I want you to put down a certain number. You know what I'm saying? They want to keep it love. So So you line so would you like That's my job. That's my bread and butter, so I got to do what they think. I got a family. What's striking about standing outside Formosa and finding pellets? 100 yards from the plant's edge is that last year for most agreed to pay $50 million to settle a lawsuit in which it agreed to zero discharge of pellets. And yet, here they are and down in the creek, where the plant drains thousands more. Ah federal judge called Formosa, a serial offender for most of says it's working to improve its containment systems. But Formosa is just one of thousands of companies that either make or use plastic pellets in the United States. The oil and plastic industry says it doesn't have a problem, Officials told me for most of it was simply a quote bad actor, while leading companies like Exxon and Chevron recently told shareholders that at their dozens of facilities worldwide Either lose, not a single pellet or just two sandwich bags full. And here's how they say they've done it. Thanks again for signing on the operation Clean Sweep Operation Clean Sweep is a voluntary program the industry came up with in 1991. Companies that joined watch videos and promised to keep pellets from spilling from plant truck ships and rail cars. There's no data required. No numbers, nothing public. The operation Clean sweep is truly making a difference. Together, we can achieve zero pellet flake and proud of us. The industry says it's been a success. Pellet containment is incredibly important to our members. Steve Russell was until recently the vice president of plastics for the American Chemistry Council, which jointly runs the program, Nobody wants plastic in the environment. And if it still happens, and if we're gonna assume it's an accidental release, then it will be reported and remediation steps could be taken. Formosa is an operation Clean sweep member. So I asked to former workers and Ronnie Hamrick about it. I have no idea what you're even talking about. I've never heard it. There's evidence the industry does, in fact, have a pellet problem. Recent spills on beaches in Louisiana in South Carolina and studies show pellets are contaminating oceans, killing birds and fish and carrying toxins through rivers. There's also evidence the industry has known about this problem all along. In 2005, the industry participated in a study of 10 pellet plants. It found pellets washed away in heavy rain at every single facility and called Operation Clean sweep. Inadequate. But even long before that, there's a memo buried inside thousands of documents left over from old industry lawsuits. It was written in March. 1991 Thean Mysteries Trade Association warns top executives from Exxon, Chevron, Dow DuPont and others. But the EPA have recently found pellets to be quote ubiquitous in the environment. Regulation and permits are likely coming, the memo says. Unless they act quickly, it may still be possible to institute voluntary programs to address the pellet issue, it says. Unless this occurs, it is likely EPA will act independently. Then, just four months later, we developed a program that was called Operation Clean Sweep. Lou Freeman was a vice president at the time for the trade association, then called the Society of the Plastics industry. I don't recall any discussions. But quantitatively measuring the success of the program. It was being measured really about who is participating that what the results were, so it was a voluntary program without any metrics. Yeah, I would like to think that they were also doing it because it was the right thing to do. But I'd also be naive if I didn't think that much of the motivation was was governed by, you know. Keeping the regulators off our back today. The EPA doesn't regulate pellets and in the almost 30 years since, the agency told NPR it has brought just 10 Clean Water Act enforcement cases against facilities accused of spilling pellets. How would anyone really know if pellets were leaking? If you head down to the Gulf of Mexico pellet manufacturers like Chevron Phillips say they're not. I can tell you that. It's not a problem here at Chevron Phillips, we have almost no Let's leaving our sights. Jim Bakker is the

you do it he reaches into the kids pocket pulls out a twenty gives it to the got the pretzel vendor and then kicks this kidney asking of get out of here and that was it that's how he handled it right interesting you will be fired if you did that we'd be in trouble yeah yeah I would I would well I would hope you would start with a stern talk if you know that would probably be the the right place to start right and I put him back on the right path otherwise you know maybe a little trip to talk to the you know judge maybe some is what a guys attention as well yeah and I maybe would have changed the course of the life they handle it differently man out of it's good or bad but they do they they they certainly do it differently what is it when you when you talk about the LA the homeless issue is a big problem for private citizens but it's even a bigger problem for you guys now yeah I mean so you know I would say that the one of the the type issues that we talk to the community about and in this is again was so we're talking about the value we're talking about everything from studio city like I said already Chatsworth and from you know within hills all we offer to settle in there a lot of concern to the community and that the concern is we have people that are living in the streets and that's really no way for society to treat its members that's right we we have we have a duty to support them doing you know better in their life so what what we look to do on the loss as police department is lead with services and we look to support our brother sister agencies and provide organization provides structure and provide a helping hand in that certainly getting people off the street to get the help that they need and certainly trying to help our mayor find solutions to these problems that are affecting us here in the city right wouldn't when you hear it this tribe my wife actually crazy to the point where she stopped going to Starbucks and that'll last for about a week by when she sees or hears Hey you know officer was refused service and at a Starbucks does that make you crazy or is that something that just sort of rolls off your back well you know the funny thing about that is so I'm gonna you know former restaurant manager before I came on Los Angeles deposit right where yeah I used to work in new moon pizza really near LA X. yeah okay quite a we have quite the operation going over there we had numerous no one in scene which I think was one of the original ones yes and I'm it it it was good for a while when being on back and forth it slid down a you know got up there at one point I said it should be they should change the name to numero does you know what I mean okay anyway so it she worked in the restaurant world before that yeah and you know from what some of just from a business perspective right okay anyone that's gonna deny a service to first responders you raising have to wonder you know because when you pick the phone up and call nine one one right they're gonna respond first because their first responded sure so that that is kind of it's interesting because my business aspect you're not going to really have a whole lot of community support for not serving first responders I think in general anywhere in the United States right what's the mentality behind that what what are these kids thinking we don't because they're they're not obviously you know adults and they don't think like adults they're probably all under twenty six which they say is when you become you know a real adult what is your thinking behind that died that they they are that they won't won't serve a cop Hey you think they've had some personal bad experience with law enforcement or or maybe the family members then well I so it could be that yep quite often it's urban legends but quite often you know and I and I do want to point this out we've all had different experiences when we were younger with a with law for sure they may have had an experience I they may have heard first and second had third hand information about negative experience with law enforcement here's what I would ask the public to do give all of us a fair shake if someone hits you poorly are they do something wrong reported immediately that's what I've always said if you if you have great service from a police officer you need to write a commendation right if we fall short you need to that one of our supervisors know so we can take effective action it's really that simple it's in it works the same way if you were at I hop in you had poor service that's right even talk to the manager before you leave so that poor service doesn't happen again I said what do you do a number now I was manager actually is that right yeah yes so I did everything from a yeah I had to learn the whole operation so I learned how to be a server I know how to treat the pizzas which are you know quite frankly I've always been partial to my feet so it love this week crust did you go through the academy while you're working there I didn't I actually went into being a kind of like a school security before I went to the academy okay a full time job while you went through yet the academy no and that was before I when the K. once again the academy you have one full time is that right is the LAPD yeah that's your all day on all day all night we'll class for you what what

officers out of the twelfth SS James follows very cold closely is Kurt Meyer and he's summoned to this meeting in the words are always worried about the young about was the the allied air arranging upon their vehicles but this meeting is about the condition of the front and James at this point because it's just days before the assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler were they these men to your understanding where they discussing armistice in the west where they discussing the impossibility of holding off the Americans yes by the very yeah I mean the Americans and the British to get good ideas together Dallas when they took that up I mean you know so you know maral is apt to the rope also what is keeping that records is the fact that the top of their statements and all and discipline and all the rest of it but you know everyone's ms when everyone's really hacked off even these Die Hard Waffen SS types I sent Dietrich you know he's a he's a kind of **** street thug from the nineteen thirties even his leg the game's up you know this is hard this week possibly win at you know the wars Lebovitz forget about it you know this little **** off it is absolutely amazing I was ready to advise the of causes that had rebels stage that would say of mounted would leave just read that I don't have a very good question because Rommel is there and Kirk Maier rise and you have the scene it's a brilliant seen it's a wonderful scene because it's so compelling for what it means Rommel speaks well of the twelfth SS even though it's been chewed up in pieces and Kurt Meyer is there and he starts to complain voiced a lift again and again where is the air where where's the air power and they don't have any and Ron loses his temper to to quote from you he yells at everybody about a high command they don't believe me anymore my reports anymore something has to happen in the war on the west has to end but what will happen in the east what is he worried about what is the east what is his fear yeah so this is this is either because of the this is this is part of the cut of it well how come the the van about generals with a non access general how come they come supported all this stuff you know why would they still come along to the Reggie while they're still fighting one they just come about the reason is because either they said the west would spread of communism they feared exactly the same way that a that a we Americans and British Canadians said the west would spread of gnosticism is exactly the same thing and you know they have a little ideological fear and hatred of communism and she had said all alone in the world would be you know look at America in the nineteen fifties that McCarthyism and all the rest of it I mean you know it's it's it's a real faith and they feel they go do something and and Robles rob a politically naive hope is that they could sue for peace with the with the western allies and then be left on their own to go to deal with with the with the Soviet Union because of because why would the British one the servi is spreading that tentacles grows you ever called me that but it's it's a VI talk about half an hour how rebel thinks but that's the climate you know that's what they're thinking from an Roblin this call rob Romulus later persecuted and executed we believe by the no no he argues that is yeah he had that he he's implicated in the July and the July although there's some hedging about there is there is no evidence at all that he was right remotely bet but fun fun fun Fluker was involved as well to Tim one interpretation did they all know that there was a movement against her at that can sit low I don't believe they did it'll I think they will join the right result having of any of those guys with us even use last night Hitler I think they're just thinking we've got a somehow persuade the regime take out of you that the the to to save the pace yeah but Sepp Dietrich and and marron rubble we know that than ever they're not talking about assassinating him about the knife to do well with in debt Hitler's the attempt on Hitler's life is on the twentieth and that is a that is going to rock the whole Vera mock but before that Rommel gets in his car they warning be careful because the opposite route there and you have detailed that two Canadian Spitfires come over and look lieutenant Charlie fox he fires on Rommel's car and runs out of the war is not dead but he's out of the war yeah very nearly is that actually use he's very very badly wounded and you know it's it's it's touch and go for several days I mean yeah but but another thing is you know one of us is role doing when the battle front is in nobody wise he's still got his headquarters that rush to Gail I mean you know which is a hundred plus miles away in a black car I mean it's absolutely insane yeah he's living up and like it either a brisk about as with her because I was in the first World War but kind of busy in Saturday's coming

the next big push combined arms and that is the pay off here because from a late July and August the allies used their own overwhelming firepower will begin with just flagging here that what's coming up is there preparing for operation cobra what is that man to achieve checked yeah we'll get can I just say possible with this the two fisted right this is a two fisted punch those corporation good wood in the west in the east of us which is a British land and without the Canadians attacked and then the recovery operation cobra which is the American missile the idea is that the Americans are going to give you a mass that forces into war on big wallop in a one big pull back and I have a question for ya is is good wood is is cobra meant to be set up by good what is were they thinking that way we hit them with good word and that free so that that is the part about good would go I mean good wood the way it was pitched by Dempsey is economic about it was that it might achieve the the crucial break for Monty is skeptical that it will have to do that but he let Eisenhower and tend to believe that it might so that he can get the the heavy strategic affable that he wore yeah they do it they tried you know the the route target tags which inside upside down all this I mean this is this is south of Caen four square miles south of Caen is the target area for the heavies that's so so they did not I did it and it ended up with a double digit the breakthrough but they do about seven miles but the main point from what you said second is to be sure that the mass of the Panzer divisions remains rooted in the east so that that and all that in the west when Bradley launches operation cobra another as it turns out there are going to three pounds and was one of the I've been going to division there's a part of the record wreckage of the plans of that and as the dash right second Panzer Division in the oppose the Americans but it is not compatible with the seven by the

monthly so he knows he can get away with it and you have this is this is not please great failing is his inability to communicate with his is the what is the area's how the plan they say you know he

DotMusic Wins Rights to .MUSIC Domain Name Extension
"Listeners will not love more music, and once again on counting down the days to the Glastonbury festival next month well on planning on completely losing ourself and recharging my motor by putting my smartphone and technology downing going off thicker head for a few days. And the media will talk about three to five headline acts and how that's the whole purpose of the weekend. The best thing about that whole event is actually not the headline is but wondering round nine hundred acres around. I think it's one point four square miles and soaking up over a thousand acts across many, many stages and actually stumbling across things I wouldn't normally listen to even find myself in a hurry Krishna turn a few years ago. Oh, but that's the story for another time. But I do want to talk about music and technology today because hearing twenty nine thousand nine if you ever looked up let's say Drake and tried to go to Drake dot com. You quickly realize it has nothing to do with Drake the artist for that you need to go to Drake official dot com. Just to find his information and this highlights how even the world's biggest artist don't always own their dot com. Website. But a new domain name called dot music is looking to change that and change that digital music landscape because dot music, we'll be the first to main extension launch with music tailored policies to actually protect Craig as rights and ensure the only legitimate music artists industry professionals and companies can claim their name without fear of cybersquatting, all piracy, essentially dot music is the exclusive community top level domain name initiative, giving music entities an artist a unique identity online and the specialized dot music web address actually enhances LeBron's visibility online and ensures that dot music websites are associated with a memorable self-explanatory an ultimately trusted badge representing the music industry. What excites me about dot music? Paving the way for next generation of the internet by building a home to everything related to music. I mean since two thousand and four. Live under the slogan wheel music dot music. As also embarked on an extensive communication outreach campaign to launch this domain name and the initiative, so I want to find out more about this journey, and how dot music, the dot music, domain more, and how a small company with a big dream be out tech behemoths, which is Google Amazon and secured, the top level domain extension. He's a fantastic story. It's an inspirational story so book elope and hold on tight. So I can be me is all the way to Los Angeles. So we can speak with Constantine Russa's, founder and CEO of dot music. So massive warm. Welcome to the show Constantine. Can you tell valley says about who you are? And what you do. Yeah. Hi, thanks for having me know. My name is Constantine Russa's. I'm the founder and CEO of dot music. I'm responsible for setting an executing mission and purpose of dot music, which is to create a trusted and safe online haven for music consumption, licensing, establishing, a safe home on the internet for music, community members and protecting intellectual property and fighting piracy and supporting musicians, welfare and beyond. The implementation of the dot music mission. I also lead the strategic direction and execution of dot music's goes to launch a safe and verified dot music domain extension. Like, he's fantastic what you do here. And for people just saying about you for the first time don't music is a community based to main extension is supported and then. Thousands of the most trusted and influential musical stations all across the world. But can you set the scene and bring older listeners up to speed with exactly what it as in who your customers will ultimately be? So dot music is a generic top level. Gombeen extensions. Also known as a T L D or a GT LD those acronyms. Could also be called a domain ending or suffix just to give examples of other domain extensions. You've got dot com dot net dot org dot TV dot U, K dot info, eccentric cetera. And basically any member of the global community will be able to register adopt music through global retailers such as go daddy weeks. One in one in the web address of will look like something like WWW dot your named on music for the customers are obviously musicians creators, artists bands music industry professionals music companies. In other words, any entity that relates to music full minorities point, if you then what's the difference between having adult music, domain, competitor dot com, domain that is the million dollar question right there. And it's it's one of the questions that that we always get Oviously. What is the difference? And what are the advantages of dot music over dot com. So so basically, the the idea of of dot music is for the domain extension to be exclusive to the global music community. In other words, if you're a pet owner, and you want to do a website about your pet that wouldn't work if you're a first furniture owner that would either. So it would be exclusive only to music usage. And Furthermore, it has enhanced safeguards copyright protection. Brand name protection owners will be verified. And basically it would be a badge of trust. In addition, something that's very special ball dot music will be the build insecurity. In other words, HTTPS? So this helps for search engine ranking and we have Google for the pioneers in that space. They launched the first domain extension, which incorporates this building security HTTPS in dot app dot APP, and they have made statements, and it's it's one hundred percent certainty that they give secure sites a ranking boost in Google search. So obviously if you have dot apt that website will rank higher with everything held equal. It would rank higher in the search results. And we thought that was fantastic. 'cause 'cause it's aligned with our safe twisted, secure, verified dot music. So we will also incorporate that built in security, so we'll be the second top level domain. Attention after Google's extensions that will incorporate that, and we believe search engine ranking is a key determinant. Also the other question that we get with respect to dot music versus dot com is the idea that don't music will replace I- musicians or music companies dot com. I think that's the wrong idea. I actually think that's the way that it should work is sort of like social media. You've got your Twitter account. You've got your Facebook.
