Bailing it out of trouble but that batmobile sure is a gas guzzler not to mention the bat wing airplane and the electricity bill for the bat cave is probably astronomical so is all that. Do gooding really doing good. After all some researchers from stanford university presented a poster at the american geophysical union's twenty seventeen fall meeting entitled stop saving the planet carbon accounting of superheroes and their impacts on climate. Change the point of the project was to bring awareness to the fact that everybody on this planet has a carbon footprint which is a calculation of how much carbon each of us in our daily activities such as driving eating and heating and cooling our houses the average americans carbon footprint is around forty four thousand pounds that's about twenty thousand kilograms of carbon per year an average person in the united arab emirates uses a good bit more and average peruvian uses considerably less.

Sources would come in higher than the average american because of the sheer amount of tech that he uses and the flash who can run near the speed of light might require an insane number of calories to accomplish this feat possibly as much as eighty nine million pounds or forty five million kilograms worth of carbon but isn't a kind of a silly question for serious scientists to spend their time exploring poster co author miles traer a postdoctoral researcher at stanford tokyo's if i calculate my own carbon footprint that's depressing if i calculate batmans carbon footprint.

Already beleaguered, deepening restrictions hit iconic British pubs where it hurts
"Yellows linked to inside Europe England is getting grips with a new three tier system of local lockdown measures to try to hold a growing second wave of the corona virus in the highest risk areas, pubs and bars that don't serve food have been forced to close, and of course, the country licensed premises have shorter opening hours, one group of pubs. Legal actions saying pubs are not a high risk for transmission of the virus. It's another blow to the traditional British pub which has been in decline for decades Lissi Taylor. Reports from the north of England. That sounds impassive British life for generations. clinking goes. Boring drinks. And the bell which calls last orders. But the number of traditional pubs has been fooling since the middle of the century. With Corona virus restrictions is even more pressure on landlords. You don't know what's going to happen from one day to next just. All the time there's another curve all that you have to try and get around Jack Baker is the Publican head chef at the castle in in Sheffield sanitizers are spending by our thousand pound a month from sanitizers. Having the staff to way the tables. Putting gazebos up and here's building aside market build a pub. The whole costs is probably about four thousand pounds so far. In minimum staff but having them on extra time. Because you have to do all these extra measures they go. Enjoy email hubs like jacks had closed for months earlier in the year and had limit. So my capacity in this summer. Now, is the weather gets colder the second wave of the virus in England has started. Areas like this one in the north have been hardest hits. We're entering a new and crucial phase in a fight against creative ours because the number of cases has got four times in four weeks and it's once again spreading among the elderly and vulnerable. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a new three t a lockdown system with new restrictions on pubs and bars. Across the country, they have to close earlier in high risk areas like this one groups for more than one household and not allowed inside. and. In the worst hit areas including the city of Liverpool. Traditional drinking spots contact asshole pubs and bars must close unless they can operate solely as a restaurant serving alcohol only as part of a main meal. It it a national conversation about what constitutes a meal with jokes about bis soup. But away from the MEMES, there are serious concerns about whether businesses can survive. The hospitality industry says it's been unfairly targeted for restrictions without evidence that people going out a responsible for outbreaks. What we're suggesting is there is some misconception in terms of the impacts that hospitals in particular is a nighttime industries. Association is considering legal actions. Cook Hill is its chief executive for us. We're concerned the we're being isolated as a set to this doing everything. It can expect a lot of money making sure cove in safe making sure that we toe the line we closed for long periods. We've got lots of businesses already closed for long periods, and now we're in a position where the government are putting restrictions on, but they can't give us a scientific evidence to be transparent full closing all businesses down when there are clearly other businesses that are able to open with less restriction less regulation. The industry argues drink is would be safer on premises with staff to police the rules. Viral videos like this one show crowds turned away from city buzz dancing in the streets instead. Pubs we're already closing at a rate of three a day before the pandemic. The UK government says it will support struggling businesses. Some landlords a calling time at the bar
How I Built Resilience
"Hey welcome back to how. I built this resilience edition so we just heard from some industrial. Who actually started her. Culinary career at Chez Panisse in Berkeley and. Her Mentor was none other than Alice. Waters Alice daughter Fanny Singer. Join me to talk about how shape unease is doing during the crisis and how we can keep local farmers and business by buying straight from the source Finney. I know that you are sheltering place that your mom right now in Berkeley of all. How are you guys doing? How are you holding up? It's it's sort of strange very surreal. Moment I live in San Francisco and I do still have apartment there. But you know it's a one bedroom apartment and my partner and I are together. We both were working at home. And there's no outdoor space than being in Berkeley was not just to be with my mom who I obviously concerned about to. Just because I wanted to fee `sort sort of insane person about disinfecting nail and all the things in a little bit more German centric than my mother so these things were these work concerns of mine but also I mean to be Berkeley in a place that has really rich outdoor environmental NGO to walk through one hundred thirty seven pad this in the hills of the Berkeley into just feel to walk for ten. Miles is like the only thing I think kind of keeping me from total insanity. Alice tell us a little bit about. What's going on with Chez Panisse right now? Obviously you've been closed for five. Maybe six weeks. What's going on with the staff right now. We really paid the step their time off so that when it comes time to reopen that they would be there and available we had the good luck to get a kind of bridge loan from some wonderful friends of the restaurant that are helping us get to the point where money comes from the government to pay people. Some are on unemployment and some are being paid a portion of their salaries. But it's really important to me that people are paid at this time. If I have to ask my friends I have my friends Alice. One of the things I read about which is super cool. is that Obviously you work with a lot of small farmers all over California and a lot of these farmers presumably. I mean they supply restaurants so first of all from your conversations with with farmers that you work with you supply your restaurant and other restaurants. I mean what is their situation like I mean? How long can they go like this without having restaurants to supply? It's very serious. What's going on with our whole organic farm community because they really have a only the farmers markets to bring food to and the number of people that are going to farmers markets is not what it usually is so. We're trying to figure out how to buy that food from the farmers and we have a project in Stockton California The mayor of Stockton is very enthusiastic about getting or Ganic Food in the public school system and serve at this moment in time. He asked if we could help buy food from the farmers said that he can give an stockton and I thought that that would be a perfect way for us to begin building that network that we're going to need for the public schools and were putting little recipes into the box so that people know how to make very simple dishes and may given at least four thousand pounds of food away in Stockton Alice. I I mean you've talked about this for years that when you were a little girl. Your parents had a victory garden at home in New Jersey and that you really are encouraging people to plant their own. Things actually inspired me so much. I've got some ceilings. Here can you see some big lettuce there? You go and I'M GONNA hopefully. That'll be lettuce in a couple of months. I mean I don't have a big backyard. I have a small space and got a planter but for people who don't have a backyard who might live in an apartment I mean what are some ways that people can think about growing their own food that keeps looking at Brown Finley and he started by chanting food out in front of his house? In that little parkway between the sidewalk and the street and it caused a lot of controversy and he actually cited for violating. Some ordinance got any went to court. He wanted his case and he actually has planted that whole strip of land. So sort of thinking about him. I did the same thing I cup. That little plop right in front of my Bad I think you can plant like you have done and planter boxes on a balcony. I hope that the community gardens began to surge research and unite. My mom planted the little section. That's just in front of our house because even though we do have a garden in the back she wanted people to think about this victory garden moment and the potential for even the most throwaway pieces of land. It's now planted with a few different edible things and she's already gotten notes through our mailbox thanking her for taking this kind of actions embolic being encouraging people. And you've just seen this proliferation of gardens now in people's sort of little forgotten front yards and people sowing seeds all around the neighborhood now and way. It's really incredible. I've just never seen anything like it before you know. One of the things that you've talked about is the idea of buying local produce supporting local farmers wherever you are in the country around the world and you know one of the questions that that we're getting from folks on facebook Tuesday from Bell Zelezny also which what are ways that we can help. Small farmers are other ways of their places where we can go buy things from them especially farmers who are used to providing restaurants. I if you are at a loss for who you're farmers are do. The work researching call the pharmacy. Are you having trouble? Are you imperilled? Is there a way that I can help? You facilitate a network of deliveries. Can I help you deliver? But also it might be a question of just helping them figure out logistics or even knowing who they are. Where their farms are I mean? I have friends in. La The lines were so long that they weren't able to get any food so they just started figuring out who the farms were that they could drive out to so they could still got great produce. And I mean it's been a little bit more problem solving and resourceful and also knowing that the farmers are maybe really good at growing vegetables. That don't necessarily know how to work. A whole distribution network. And if that's something that you have extra time for facility with like make the effort because they do need us
Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.

So it looks like it just came right through this area. The mayor Kerry Turjan told us tornado sirens, likely saved lives. We have the outdoor warning sirens, and I heard them. In fact, I just lay down to go to bed last night, about eleven fifteen and heard it today's that weren't major injuries. Given those kinds of wins, it is amazing.

"Was sent hygienics outlet. Hi dooby. Do what I do. And let them including. California, by the way, interim therapeutic restoration so they can actually scoop out to K and put in some sort of Florida temporary.

And then he's put together us put together numerous program statewide, and and he's a national lecture international lecture for that matter on on this type of delivery system. Another intelligence, Dr Dorota Chica, kiosque M P H. I'm sure I burchard that name on shirts hundred percent chances polish doctor Dorota company are you from other company? Check guy kiosque university of Rochester. Who says that the missing piece and telemedicine is dentistry or you from her again, the Dave not the person. Yeah. I mean, I it's it's all over the place. And I think that I think dentistry when whenever there's a disruption, you really need to look out and see what's going on. I also think a lot of this on telemedicine. I think some of the four thousand pound girl is in the room or the the four thousand elephants. No, one talks about is four and a half percent of Americans will finish out their life at a nursing home and the data's coming into nursing on that they're getting about one root surface cavity per month. So once grandma's been in there for a year, she has twelve root surface cavities, which just grow crazy. And there's a big market for that. I've gone to several nursing homes and AirAsia and just follow them around for a shift. You gotta get the right nurse at you know. Is open to. But I mean, I it's just appalling. When what I saw my own is is this these nurses, they seem to be small people to begin with. And they have an entire wing, and they've got a bathe and feed and eating medicine this entire wing. And when it comes down to the tooth brushing thing, all I saw with my own eyes was a toothbrush a little P of two days back and forth on the front sixteenths. But in XY Cup, and that was there that was our oral Herrell Orel care regimen and to have someone going in there telegenic Dennis three and doing a thorough cleaning, however off that is putting some SEO silver diming Floride on those root surface. Cavities would be amazing and the other four thousand pound Elvin that no one's about is the sedation that when these kids he's hundred and forty million people, you talk about that aren't really in the dental system when that two year old needs a potties and chrome so crowns and. And board certified pediatric dentists board certified anesthesiologist put that take that to the orange put him under that oftentimes doesn't turn out. Right. I mean, it's you know when you do sedation. You only do people between sixteen and sixty that are healthy, you sure as heck don't want to be doing two year olds. I mean, even the three public dental office companies around the world to Australia, one three hundred smiles Pacific, general smiles, and there's one in Singapore, q AM their lawyers when they did their DSO and went public Asia. Their lawyers said, you're you're not even allowed to do this. I mean, they just exit out their business. There's no sedation by anyone under sixteen over sixty. So what you're talking about really fulfills a huge black eye and dentistry, and that's under served for nursing homes. And also those nursing Dave, grandma and grandpa, if they're not in there for dementia, Alzheimer's, whatever they got rheumatoid arthritis there. They're they're in a home for reasoning and brushing influencing all your teeth. What percent of people nursing, do you think don't even have the ability to properly brush in foster teeth every morning and night. Well, it's anecdote, but it's you know, I-.
"four thousand pounds" Discussed on 850 WFTL
"Police say. On Friday, you guys get chime in whatever you want to talk about is going to be fair. There's a lot going on today. We've got a couple of great guests one is Steve he's the author. Responding to the ridiculous claim by AO. See, you know me. AFC AO crazy about the world ending in twelve years to get his response on that which had been alive. We've also got Chad dean on he's got a book out. He was on that show. Paul you ever watch that show my six hundred pound life. No I've seen commercials for I've never seen it. I've seen commercials as well. Because I watched that I think sixty days inn is on TLC. So there are promos on their four by six hundred pound life. It appears to be really really really really really really fat like morbidly obese gonna die from being sold over weight people and their trek through life. This guy was seven hundred one pounds. I mean. That's like about cycle. That's that's heavy. Somebody's gonna ride motorcycles less than center battle. No. It just seems a car. The car would be you know, two three four hundred pound or four thousand pounds. But it's it's a serious amount of weight three times almost. So that's that's amazing. And he's lost over four hundred pounds. So we've got him on today. We're going to talk to him about that weight loss about how he's healthier now. And he's written a memoir about it. We'll talk about that as well. We also have to get into. Roger stone was arrested. And he's already on two hundred fifty thousand dollars bond or something. But the media is in a breathless frenzy got him got Trump got him. So we'll talk about that. They don't have Trump, by the way, none of the charges had anything to do with Donald Trump. None of them. But the media's acting as if Trump himself was taken away in handcuffs, which is actually what they're fantasy is. It's a fantasy. That's not going to happen. So all that men some in. There is a lot going on today. And as I said, we will always take your calls on a free speech Friday. It's just what we do. But keep in mind, if I don't know what to think about it. I'll just hang up on you move on anyway, Ilana warm, making more news Yulon, Omar as the district five democrat from the great state of Minnesota. And it's ridiculous that somebody who hates Jews like she does was elected to office be great state like Minnesota. There's something wrong with the state that allows a certain district to be so overrun by people of a certain political persuasion that they would elect somebody who hates Israel, and who would lie about Lindsey Graham, or I guess lie official court documents about whether she was involved with her brother or not. It's ridiculous. It's literally ridiculous. But now she's claiming that President Trump some house backing a coup in Venezuela. I guess she liked Venezuela. The way it was under a Madero and before him. Chavis java's. So we got that. We'll talk about to Monday, by the way, it'd be deputies desouza Sousa's wife. We've had our the program before she, of course, originally from Venezuela. And she tells the story of the way her country used to be and what it is today. And there is no good news there. What do you see what an evil socialist dictator can do? I have somebody right on my Facebook page yesterday. Well, you're such a liar. You're disingenuous about the Swedish show socialism, and the the Netherlands or some other countries, Switzerland or some crap. And I actually I wrote the person bat all you'll probably delete me now because you're so embarrassed tell you should be ashamed. Sarr responded with the video the John startled did Johnston with a great journalist. There are but a few left, but a great journalist and. Stachel. Does this entire piece? Where he talks about. How Sweden has rejected socialism? This person trying to claim they democratic socialism means something democratic socialism is a misnomer. It's a false nomenclature. To make you think that there is something democratic about socialism. Socialism is a wholesale takeover of private industry socialist wholesale takeover of your rights, your freedoms and your liberties socialism is for those who promote it free everything. But at the end of the day if you're smart. You know that there's nothing free. No free lunch. No, free dinner, no free. Anything? Somebody's going to pay the Bill people like AFC can say just pay for it. That's pay for it. And I guess that somehow it's going to bring it home for does the money just grows on trees or falls out of our reruns and the truth is it doesn't just pay for it, and you can't tax corporations and people making a lot of money to the tune of seventy or eighty or somewhat ninety percent because then people will stop trying so hard the corporations will stop hiring people. But, but then they'll actually get the end result they want which is a population of people completely and solely reliant on this on the central government. So now socialism has never worked at it never will work, and you should be embarrassed to write on my Facebook page and having been so educated so schooled by that video from Johnstown is. Wow. You only took one example. I gave you a free. Why just I took one of your three examples a major look foolish and was even me. It was John styles. Make you look foolish. So. Yeah. Socialism doesn't work. We'll talk about that with David Sousa on Monday who again is from Venezuela will find out the inner workings of how that even happened there. And the idea that Ilan Omar would be against our president supporting. At anti-dictatorship, a an anti socialist regime to maybe bring that that country back to some semblance of normalcy. The fact that she would have a problem with that is weird. This is very strange. So there you go we've got that free. Which is always nice. I want to start though with with something a little bit off the beaten path. Oh, I don't know how how publicized this was. But it was something that sort of snuck between the the cracks today when I looked on Twitter. I didn't see a trending. So knew that they were giving some cover to the team. It turns out the players from the Golden State Warriors who are in Washington. I guess to play the wizards they met with former President Barack Obama went to his house. I guess took pick some picture leak though is supposed to leak it was supposed to be a secret meeting or something where instead of going and seeing the president of the United States, Donald Trump. Who invited in the first year they wanna make they declined the invitation the next year. Before he even invited. They said we're not going there. So he invited them there in Washington. And they go kiss the ring Brock Obama. Have you heard that? No, I hadn't actually the report was just out today. But it's not being reported very widely. Because again, I think that the left media is trying to give them some covers of the Bill when people like me say what what's wrong with you. Why would you go see the the actual president? And why are you still kissing up to a guy who who did nothing? Good for the people. It's very odd to me. You're a sports fan. You're not as political as I am, obviously. But you're a sports fan. You agree with me that the winner of the World Series or the Super Bowl or the NBA championship one invited to go. See the president should go. If you're invited on see why you wouldn't want to go. Dancing stupid. Yeah. It's not just the president. It's it's going to the White House. The people's house. It's the it's the White House. It's the taxpayers house. It is the the central optic or optics of the capital of our country. Why you attorney that down and go to Brock Obama's millions and millions of dollars a state behind a wall, by the way. And kiss his ring. It's it's to me again. I don't care what your politics already. And I knew that Steph curry the star of the warriors, although people can can actually say Kevin Durant and some others Klay. Thompson are just as big, but Steph curry I think is the face of the franchise what he said in two thousand sixteen I'm voting or polling for endorsing Hillary Clinton. I knew that he wasn't very smart politically, and that's fine. You don't have to be smart politically due to three point shot from thirty feet out and make it almost every time, but to go and genuflect to a guy, and I'll ask a simple question to anybody who's listening. You're watching. Why would they want to go see him and shunned the current president? The current president has never done anything against any individual community. And in fact, has done more for every American no matter what your race your ethnicity, your background your religion. He's done more for every American Ben than Obama could've done in his wildest dreams. Obama per. Purposely separated us on the lines of race and divided us on the lines of race some sort of strange revenge way of doing business why on earth. Would've basketball team where it's seventy plus percent black and the individual numbers on on the warriors. But I think the league is seventy or seventy seven percent black, which is fine. Bill complaints about that. If if you got the best players, you're the best player on care, what color they are. But why would they go and kiss his ring what he exponentially hurt black people? He actually had policies in place that were harmful and horrible for black people and underprivileged people and poor people and low income people and high crime area people, whereas Trump has put in place more money in your paycheck. Even if you are black. More per hour. Yep. Even if you're black more jobs available. Yep. Even if you're black lower unemployment for black folks and just about everybody else across the board. Why are you kissing Obama's? What exactly had he done other than make black people feel like he was taking up for them? When in reality. He was just separating us by by race. But he said the police acted stupidly. It's because the cop was white and his buddies skip what's his name is a black guy when he said if I had Sonny might look like Trayvon it's because he was going against the white Hispanic Zimmerman and for the black guy involved Trayvon Martin what he sent representatives of the White House. It is administration to the funeral of Michael Brown a guy that caused his own death because he attacked a police officer. He was high and just stole some stuff what he sent representatives from your White House to go to that funeral of the bad guy that causes own death. You knew which side he was going to be on. And he did that purposely for eight years and the Golden State Warriors. I don't think they're dumb people because they play a game. Very well. And you've got to be very intelligent to understand the inner workings of the NBA game for them to go kiss. His ring a guy that hurt so many people in a community like the communities. Many of the players came. From and ignore the guy that actually is is raising everybody up and offering equal opportunity to everybody. It makes me nuts. It makes me think. Wow. There is a disconnect here that I don't think I'm ever going to permeate..

And Mary Louise Kelley President Trump's sit down with Vladimir Putin looked set to go ahead on the sidelines of the g twenty summit this week. Then Trump threatened to call it off yesterday. He said it was probably on. And then from Air Force One on route to Argentina Trump tweeted. He was pulling out the bottom line is they may have an impromptu chat in Buenos Aires who knows there's nothing on the formal schedule. What we do know is that hanging over any meeting between the leaders of the United States and Russia is Robert Mueller, the special counsel who has been investigating ties between Russia and Trump and who this week showed his hand in a number of interesting ways, prompting journalist Garrett Graff to ask is Robert Muller's in game. Incite graph explores that question in wired magazine this week, and he joins me now hither Garrett by now as is prone to happen in two thousand eighteen there have been twists and turns even since you file. This story, and we're gonna get to some of those but to travel far far back in time all the way to Monday this week forgotten the dark ages. This was the day that Muller's team alleged that Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chair had lied to the FBI. And you argue in your piece in wired that this day Monday may end up breaking among the most consequential days yet of the Muller probe. Why it's an incredibly hard, obviously to read the tea leaves of this investigation surprised us at every turn and often surprises us multiple times within a single day. But it seemed like Monday was the beginning of the end that the decision to declare Paul Manafort as non-cooperative and move forward with his sentencing appears to be perhaps a way that Muller is trying to move forward with publishing something that could. Look like the Muller report that he plans to file sometime presumably next week. A document outlining with the court all of Paul manafort's lies in crimes. So if that is one way that Mueller may be showing his hand or about to show his hand. Let me fast forward you now to yesterday, which is when longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleads guilty again this time of lying to congress about a proposed Trump Tower in Moscow. How does it that shift the picture? It's one of the most significant moves that we've seen so far from Muller because what it does is connects Donald Trump and the Trump organization directly to Russia in directly to Russian President Vladimir Putin during the course of the two thousand sixteen campaign and how so how are they now coming together? We'll what you have is Michael Cohen trying to contact in game the assistance of Ladimir Putin himself. To secure the funding and the approval for Trump Tower Moscow as late as the spring of two thousand sixteen well into the period where Donald Trump has secured the GOP nomination for president of the United States. One of the aspects of Muller strategy appears to have been he's kind of rating, whatever final report he's going to produce at the end of this as he goes, I mean, he's been producing these very detailed court filings. Exactly. And people seem to be waiting for there to be some hard back book that gets published at the end of this. That is labeled the Muller report like nine eleven commission style. Exactly. And I think most people are missing that. He is writing a lot of that report in public with every court filing where the details that he puts into these are far more than is strictly necessary for the criminal prosecution that he's attempting to pursue. So when you look at the. Totality of what? Bob Muller has published in these indictments in these plea agreements, there's a lot there. Well, it's about three hundred pages of what a Bob Muller report would look like at the end. So to your key question is Bob Muller's in game. And I think it is it's incredibly hard as I said to understand where this investigation is going day to day. But Bob Muller has to know that his investigation was under threat, potentially after the election, and after attorney general Jeff Sessions being fired. Absolutely. And that he I think appears to be ready for some rapid movement in the weeks ahead now that doesn't necessarily mean this is going to come to a quick conclusion. The prosecution's for Watergate stretched out over the course of almost a decade. But this is I think a case where George popadopoulos went to prison for his. Fourteen days sentence last Monday, another former trumpet, we should mention. Yes. And that I think by the time George popadopoulos comes out of prison. We're gonna know a lot more about this case, journalist and Muller biographer Garrett Graff Garrett. Thank you. My pleasure. So as we just heard one of the most significant developments in the Muller probe this week was President Trump's former lawyer and fix Michael Cohen pleading guilty to lying to congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign and that effort came after decades of President Trump trying to build in Russia to be NYC's. Ilya marritz, co host the Trump Inc podcast. He joins me now to give us a more of the long view. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. I should say Trump Inc. Right. I have to get to Trump Inc. So we know some about Michael Cohen's work during the presidential campaign. How does this week's news ads what we already knew about Trump's efforts to build in Russia? Well, we now know because Trump's former lawyer said it in court that Trump was actively pursuing a tower in Moscow while he was campaigning for the Republican nomination for president. This is something Donald Trump has long denied what history tells us is that Trump has long wanted to put his name on a building in Moscow. So in one thousand nine hundred seven he visits the US. Czar the Soviet Union, and he talks about how they need luxury hotels in Moscow and Leningrad. He makes another trip in one thousand nine hundred ninety s doesn't get anywhere. And then in the two thousand Trump's starts to lend his name to developers around the world. And there's a there deals around Russia. There's one in Azerbaijan there's one in the Republic of Georgia which Michael Cohen helps to arrange in twenty thirteen Trump's comes to Moscow again for the Miss Universe pageant. He owns the pageant, and he says again that he's in talks with developers. And then finally we see a renewed effort in two thousand fifteen and two thousand sixteen to build in Moscow.

"It does you're better off buying a return anyway and often if you're flying to the us wants to see that you've got a ticket out of the us trump will certainly say probably four thousand pounds is pretty well what you're gonna pay you'll get a special offer occasionally you might be able to get a business class return for two and a half thousand if you go indirect rather than four thousand with by the return yep right so what on earth is somebody doing spending eight thousand pounds on a single flight from washington to london at about it could be there for the most flexible ticket they might argue that of course the meeting time change they had to stay on in washington had to have a very flexible ticket that enabled them to choose any flight back so then you would pay a lot more but typically most of us would pay three to four thousand pounds and still have a pretty flexible ticket do you think these individuals at the bank of england are they all using for example what you and i might describe as a shed jeweled travel well i suspect that private jets have been used a lot there's been a boom in private jets recently the bank of england governor i'm sure will be using private jets but ultimately lexi ability and that's why he would argue that's why you have to spend so much money do we do we need to have people i mean i can understand when for example i think it was apple said that chief executive must fly by private jet and the reason for that is that he's worth such a staggering amount of money and his time is so valuable and it is the second most valuable company in the world i can see every single minute out of his but when you're the governor of the bank of england really well should you be held up then it's going to potentially cause lot more issues a lot of cancelled meetings that he needs to be at so i think there's a very strong argument for taking it private jet because he needs the flexibility doesn't want to be held up by plane that make a tech that may not operate so you can understand that but for most of us the majority would never see one all travel on one love private yeah that cool i haven't been on a fear all over the world and i've been lucky enough in my previous jobs to do these things and the and the problem is it's a little bit like being spoiled once you've been on the private jet i it really is very difficult to get back i mean for example i personally when i'm paying for i try and go economy wherever because it don't like spending money on this early and i flew to the states recently to a wedding and came back again and did it and it was okay i not available that day listen you went for this place you ain't got on a private attorney right let's talk about uber though because this is this is a stream from private jet well you say that but then uber executive that's that's quite classy yes as per se but it's on the ground rather than the air that they like it to be in the air they have won a fifteen month temporary license what will happen in fifty months who knows but essentially they seem to have won their battle against essentially the mayor of london by saying well actually you were wrong to take us potentially off the road you you have to renew our license and here we are we've indicated do you do you read it louder i actually read it as if it's it's a little bit of a victory for sedate in the sense that he took the bold step to say you're not gonna automatically get this line change you've got to change and unarguably uber have gone some way in changing i mean i still think that they've got problems with car quality i think particularly at the cheaper end i think they got problems with dr quality particularly the cheaper end and i think there's a massive difference between the exac offering and the just the sort of the general offering yes and i think they've also got a problem for for taxi drivers within the licensed taxi trade within london but also elsewhere rant where where they have those fixed fares and they're being undermined by these kinds of well.
