Biden’s Executive Order on Bitcoin: What Does It Mean?

"So let's start off frankly, I just want to get a few things out of the way on this Biden executive order that's going to be that he signed and what it means. And also some concerns about it. The first officer legitimizes Bitcoin. I think if you look at it from that perspective, it talks about the fact that it has a $3 trillion market cap that it expanded increased over 14 billion just in the last 5 years. For the for really the administration to admit that this is a legitimized player. Now we've heard a lot of discussions on attacks on Bitcoin and the uses that it has that could be nefarious uses are illegal uses. But I think the overall tenor of this executive order says, okay, this is a legitimate path, a legitimate currency, a legitimate issue that we as a government are addressing. And we're going to say we legitimize it. And now we're going to talk about how we're going to deal with it. Of course, in dealing with it, the scary thought about anything with Bitcoin or anything that the federal government comes up and decides that they actually want to start investigating or being a part of is what do they do? And is the regulation or is the interest that they take in a certain industry going to be worse and basically kill the ingenuity and the sort of the atmosphere of Bitcoin that is allowed it to thrive and that is the privacy aspect that is the that it being not being tied to a currency and that it actually grows on its own. And we're seeing this as it is and it's not being some marginalized to the side. This executive order from President Biden actually legitimize it. There are some things though that Al Franken, I want to point out that concern me about this, and we'll be talking about this. Is any time you see a executive order and I have the executive order as I'm sitting here with and I'm looking over it. It says, when it starts and the talking points are protect. When it says protect U.S. customers investors and businesses protect U.S. global financial stability. And mitigate system risk. I just want to be aware here. The interest is when they start saying they're doing this to protect something or to protect you. It's going to come with regulations in which they believe what is best. One of the great things about Bitcoin is the simple fact that it has grown in and of itself. It is grown out there with people taking a look at it, deciding if they wanted to be a part or invest in it or own Bitcoin. And this is sort of been the process from day one. The privacy aspect of it. So I will just say this. Directs department of treasury and others to start looking into this. It doesn't give it's not as restrictive as many thought it would be. So that is a good thing, but I want you to always be aware and one of the things I want to talk about that I've tried to share on this podcast is we very concerned when government wants to protect

Biden vs. Kavanaugh Sex Allegations Show Democrats' Jaw-Dropping Hypocrisy

"Moore back during the brett cavanaugh. Hearings that was three years ago. It's amazing to think three years ago. Brett cavenaugh stood in front of the united states senate to be confirmed to the united states. Supreme court you remember how the media covered brett cavenaugh as an attempted rapist. You see revolutionary movements like rich versus poor poor versus rich women against men and black versus white are helpful as a means to an end to get political power. The brett cavenaugh example was a great example of how they were trying to use a moment of a movement to try to get political power but if actually ever threatened one of their own they might send andrew cuomo out to pasture but they could replace it with the democrat. They might send an al franken out to pasture but they can replace it with a democrat but if ever was sending a joe biden out to pasture which means that a republican become president. No way because power in regards to what the left values what they prioritize is much higher on the hierarchy than actually caring about believing all women play cut sixty eight and attempted rape as though yes my supreme court nominee may be. An attempted rapists is attempted. Rapes potential attempted rape attempted rape. This is charge of attempted. Attempted rape a curry that is so critical to the nomination of judge. Cavanaugh high school drunk at attempted rape and attempted rape. This is a small example of what we had to deal with three years ago. But of course. Joe biden under credible accusations of groping women who worked for him tara reid and otherwise ignore it because we need him to become president so we can control the executive branch of the government

"I recommend taking the vaccines. I did it. Good take the vaccine but you got That's okay. You got your freedoms but i happened to take the vaccine. If it doesn't work you'll be the first to know. Okay i'm calling alabama say. Hey you know what but it is working. You got lied to trump. he didn't have ninety eight percent efficacy. We knew they want. It wouldn't work period. It's a fraud. it'll create mutants. You got chopped you got signed onto a fraud to restart the economy. I understand why you did it. You believe in science said these are bad actors. Sir you believed. America could produce a good vaccine. Of course they could've they didn't want to. You can create a vaccine. The crater franken shot came on you trump seriously. Hey if you don't have the good sense to save yourself and your career that's okay at least you're going to get republicans elected and you know we like you but my god. Maybe you're not that bright. Maybe trump's actually dumb ash. There's enormous trunk on alex jones. Turn on the tellier. So i had read over the weekend. That trump said get the vaccine and got booed which is a reminder once again to never read a headline like that and take it in unless you go to the source and listen because you could hear there. There was like a smattering of groans. But i'm not sure. If i hadn't been told ahead of time that he got booed i would even noticed anything from that right. Yeah a couple of people sounded like they were shouting or something but they always do at his rallies right. So that's so between alex jones and some of those people in the crowd. Trump is not trump enough. You're never trumper any other dead right. Maybe trump's actually done. Wow wow the other thing that really struck me about that clip. Michael maybe can get to work on. This trump sounded exactly like the trump impersonator. We had say goodbye to positive. Sean i mean that was the best trump i've ever heard. Donald trump doing now too much turkey. Tuck i don't know positing shaw. Maybe not just get so keep that handy speaking of the vaccines which absolutely not a fraud or a franken shot or creating moot mutants if you're on team j. and j. Now let's put aside the fact that you one shot people trying to take a shortcut to success little lazy little slip shot with your one shot act anyway. j. and j. says you get a booster. It offers a nine fold increase in antibodies. So you'll be looking down the road toward a booster. Was the big the big number that came out yesterday. Jeez i should have an accurate. I shouldn't just six okay. Was that the number. No no. I don't want number credibly. High they officially announced the the Multiple times more likely you are to die from cova if you haven't been vaccinated than if you have it's not even close. I'll try to look that up but it was just extraordinary y- you're better off getting vaccinated in terms of dying from the code. But i mean they're all your many many many times although the that is misleading statistics. Because nobody's really likely to die from copen unless you're seventy five year old Obese person you're you're not very likely to die from cova no matter what it's like any of those Statistics that they use that You know drinking coca cola everyday increases the likelihood of a heart attack by five times. It goes from you know one in fifty billion to five and fifty billion. Yeah exactly now. Also that's good news. There are quite a few states with icu's getting overrun right now. With cases it is virtually one hundred percent unvaccinated people twenty nine times that was the cdc release. Yesterday you're twenty nine times more likely to die of coverted if you're unvaccinated men if you're vaccinated it's only twenty nine five thousand but you're not that likely to die from covert anyway. Oh hospitalized it says here. I must have misheard either way. Whoa whoa whoa. Whoa whoa. you can't either way me on hospitalized debt. You can't yada yada yada croaking. Well get the covert bed. Because most people don't by far most people don't end up in the hospital or i o coming up one of the world's most famous babies filed a lawsuit. Stay with us Quick afghanistan kind of tangential roundup. Lindsey graham is openly saying biden should be impeached over the afghanistan withdrawal. I declare this is dereliction of duty by the commander in chief. He told a hannity. This makes it harder to fight future wars. Who's going to help us in the future after we abandon our friends in afghanistan who fought bravely likelihood of a nine. Eleven is through the roof now. Of course lindsey graham. And i like him in a lotta ways. But he's never seen a country doesn't want to invade they're coming after us and joe biden's left us naked and blind in afghanistan. I wonder what their personal relationship is because he is a guy who once said. Joe biden is one of the greatest people i've ever known in terms of being just nice good guy and he said not just in politics just in general one of the best people i've ever known So he he he and you know him by nor close and really liked each other but now he's wanting him impeached. Graham translated the president's recent remarks that We will complete well. What he said was the sooner. We can finish the better. Each day of operations bring added risk to our troops but the completion by august. Thirty first depends on the taliban continuing to cooperate and allow access to the airport. Probably could have found that clip instead of me reading it but anyway graham translated the president's remarks to me that he is going to leave on the thirty first because the taliban told me had to get out there no way in hell. We're going to get all the american citizens out we're gonna leave thousands of afghans who fought alongside us behind. And we're setting the table for the rise of al-qaeda and itis isis attack down. The road president biden assigned the death warrant for thousands of americans who helped us. He's washing his hands of afghanistan at our perilous a nation. He should be impeached well. Everybody was confused by what happened yesterday. So biden announces. He's going to well. He meets the g. Seven the news comes out of the g seven in the morning that joe biden told our g seven counterparts that we are leaving august thirty first. He's made the decision so that's the news bubbling around the news. Oh sphere Until biden comes out to speak. He shows up five hours later than when he scheduled to speak and says. I've made contingency plans for staying past august thirty first all right just a couple of hours ago. You said we're leaving august thirty first now. You say we're waking conspiracy plans to stay past august thirty first. What the hell is the policy. Well he's gonna wrap a chain around your head if you're not carefully. He's what he's saying is we're going to leave by the thirty first unless we don't understand unless we don't if we don't we're going to have a plan for staying there longer. How complicated is this could have been handled. This actually could have been handled better in any way no mistakes. No no no nothing could have been better boy the mealy mouth dishonesty continues to a taliban spokesman said yesterday the group will continue to permit foreign nationals to access the airport. Okay until the thirty first. But they're not allowing any more afghans to evacuate nope you're stuck the white house however said it continues to be the biden administrations expectation that special immigrant. Visa applicants should be able to get to the airport. It's your expectation. They should be able.

"Own bedrooms because we got exposed to cova. Last week i'm in a dimly lit room. Joe's looks relatively well let deep in the bowels of our own homes in today were under the tutelage of our general manager a brutal regime conducting. It's evil business away. From the eyes of the media i refer of course to nancy pelosi democrats ramming through the latest move to spend three point five trillion dollars and ruined the economy perhaps forever. Hey now that was a tricky one. You almost had me continental nation. Bharti get this baby go. We got chips. Salsa we got drinks alcoholic and not got the white guam. We got when you're drinking. You're there ain't no what ainhoa law of when you're drinking crawls i don't actually know what to whiteclay. Just go bomb. But baba i have not had alcohol in fifteen years I've missed some of the new things. And the only reason i'm aware of white claw is it's mentioned in roughly every other country song. Oh boy that's funny. It's it's well it's not kind of its alcoholic. Seltzer water fruity flavored. It's quite refreshing on a summer's day. Pretty young things sipping on a white claw shaking her booty. Shoot me on that all all long something or other but anyway he'll white coats enough. White cloth fits into lots of country music. So that's the only reason. I know it is that it's apparently popular. So here's your numbers for the day. Exciting numbers we got twelve thousand people out of afghanistan yesterday. Twelve thousand for a total of seventy thousand since they started this crazy airlifting. That's a lot. But their number of americans that they put out yesterday was that we got out four thousand now if the original lumber was right that it's between twelve and fifteen thousand. Americans that are there. Were a long way from getting all the americans out. I have heard. No one contradict that estimate and there were a handful of harrowing report yesterday from american citizens who are stranded. Jen psaki numskull and say we. We can't get to the airport. We get beaten in dragged about over cars every time we try. You can't walk. You'll be waylaid on the street. By the tally van so briefly. Yesterday there was a a statement on the state department website that i suppose americans in afghanistan are keeping their eye on that. Said if you don't get out right now we're not getting out. Basically is what it said and it was up there for thirty minutes. Then they took it down Would that make you vet some good governing. Yeah how how confident would that make you feel not the whatever. The statement was doesn't make any difference the fact that they had a policy that somebody put up for thirty minutes and then somebody decided needed to come down. I would think i'm screwed. I'm scared these. These people are clearly incompetent. They have no idea. I just a mess. i'm screwed. Yeah can you imagine you need to get out now or you're totally on your own. That was what the the message said for half an hour. of course. they're blaming some sort of technical glitch. Come on wow. I sat civil. That sort of thing is pre written when they occasionally accidentally publish a an obituary for somebody before they die and somebody posted the wrong page. It's conceivable but can you imagine the terror it caused among people who are already terrorized how. 'bout you don't do. That may consider being good at your job. Exactly that's the clip michael. Have you considered being good at your job So in speaking of which the president announces yesterday's gonna come out and give an address and everybody's you know waiting for the very late. Various latest on the biggest cluster f of his presidency in it's caused his approval rating to drop like fifteen points in the last two weeks and he comes out five hours after the scheduled start time for his speech. What does that does that. Make you feel more confident or not. And then he talks for for most of the little speech about the legislation that just passed okay and then throws in an oh by the way in afghanistan blah blah blah. You know halfway through. So i mean good at your jobs. It's a very good question. And so i just heard this described by one Follower of politics that he's making the calculation that look this big legislation package. That's what people are going to vote on in twenty twenty two and twenty twenty four. Nobody's gonna still be talking about afghanistan. This is a blip. It's the story of the day.

"Hurt those people because that remains the animating ethos of the party even though donald trump is the radically. Not leading it anymore theoretically. But they're so scared afraid to welcome. Basically they're afraid to be. Liz cheney right. I think that's part of it but also think that if donald trump you know Faded away tomorrow That we would still be heading in a direction because they are larger structural in ideological issues at play here that donald trump is a symptom of he is a product of those things and he is extremely good at exacerbating them making them worse and manipulating them. But these are problems that in some ways predate him. We'll talk about that talk about that. How we should have seen this coming is what you're saying. Yeah i mean. Look i think if you go back to like two thousand six and you see george w bush trying very hard to pass some kind of immigration bill because the republicans are thinking. We are going to win over. You know a substantial number of latino voters for generation with this. And it's the they're going to be staunch republicans and you see this absolute rebellion from talk radio over the immigration issue. They just do not want these people. These millions of people to gain legal status and remember. It would not have been like immediate amnesty. They would have had a pass citizenship. So it would have taken many years and that rebellion. It was turbo charged by barack obama becoming president on the strength of this broad multiracial coalition to them. You know they're seeing the end of what they consider the republican party And you could see this and this is still on fox news every day you can see tuck across and talking about this or Laura ingraham they talk about immigrant voters or latino voters are non white voters. Essentially a of biologically incapable of conservatism. Which is obvious nonsense. It was proven to be nonsense in the most recent election. But it's nonsense general. It's a form of genetic determinism which is a fancy way of saying. It's racist but this stuff was manifesting many years before donald trump came on the scene. If you look at you know in the nineties david duke is running for office in louisiana. Donald trump goes on cnn. And he's like you know. The republicans are trying to fight. David duke but i think he speaks to a lot of their base and i think if he ran for president he'd get a lot of votes. I mean. look at pat buchanan. He's basically david duke in sort of a nicer package. Donald trump said this forty years ago. He knew exactly what was going on and he used that to his advantage. You bring up him calling for the execution of the central park central park. Donald trump's racism is not the racism of like the deep south right. He's not like pitchfork. Ben tillman it is very much the racism of like eighties.

Will Ants Rescue Wounded Comrades?

"You've probably seen stories about exemplary bravery and battles soldiers and volunteers who risk everything to pull injured. Compatriots out of harm's way so they can receive much needed medical attention but some of these heroes will never receive. Any medals parades accommodations for their work. And not because of injustice but because their ants species called capone-era analysis are termite hunting. Aunts that scientists say not only rescue injured comrades but also treat their wounds. The survival rate among those injured in this combat is remarkable up to ninety percent. These ants live in colonies in sub saharan africa that average nearly one thousand members the ends wage war on termites rating their nests and dragging the dead back behind the lines as a source of food. These rates however often come at a heavy price. The termites biting crushed the ants ripping off limbs and snapping off heads. Eric frank a scientist at the university of low son in switzerland has studied these ants and seeing them do battle with termites at a research station in the komo national park one of the largest protected areas in west africa in northern cote d'ivoire. He would watch the and drag the injured back to their nest. But because the ants make their homes underground it was difficult to define exactly what happened next. So franken has team set out to discover what was happening inside the nest i they captured entire ant colonies and set them up in artificial nests. They then hooked up infrared cameras to keep tabs on the insects. The scientists also captured termites and then allowed the answer to stage a raid. Many aunts were gravely injured during the melee. Many lost limbs they're able bodied comrades responded by staging a battlefield triage separating gravely wounded from the only slightly wounded. The seriously injured those who lost at least five limbs often died on the battlefield because as the researchers noted they didn't seem to want to be helped that bendon distort their bodies making it difficult for their sisters in arms to carry them to safety. Those whose wounds were less serious however allowed themselves to be cared for

Behind the Scenes of Havana Libre

"Emily. Bray is a film that follows primarily to surfers in cuba. And you learn about what it takes to be a surfer in cuba and you also follow them as they try and take steps to legalize the sport in their country and the journey takes them ultimately all over the world. but most of what's important is right there in cuba even though the story is about cubans with a particular passion seeing aluminum for me. It was felt like an opportunity to see cuba after so many years of not being on the island of seeing people cubans going about their daily lives. I assume that you are not in any way shape or form. Latin american or cuban for that matter. So how did you end up landing on the story. How did you get to cuba. How did this happen gory. Speaking you are correct in your assumption that we are not latin american and when we began the film. We didn't speak any spanish at all. I'd always had a fascination with cuba. Just because it's such a mysterious place to people outside the island. So i had the opportunity to travel there quite briefly and in that time i met both of our main characters in the film franken and they sort of welcomed me in as a friend and started to explain to me what surfing was like there and it was really just kind of just like exchange of know things that made us excited and by the end of it left. Cuba was like this is incredible. I had no idea that this scene existed here. And you know you spend so much of your time looking at the cuba that is sort of stereotypical and said he gets some insight into something that you just don't know exists in a place that you know. So little about your. You're just a. I was instantly intrigued. That's i came back to the states. N i talked to steph.

"Tutors. I mean you just look at who is going to those schools which you know these schools princeton they have endowments. Where if you can't afford to go bomb you get the full boat right so that on on that score. They're great but you look at who their students are. And there is a difference between say black with tino and say asian yet. I i've written about this in a write about it from the economic standpoint. So if you look at this a great study that came out. I think in two thousand nineteen that matches what they call a. Ldc some four different ways that people kind of get exceptions into getting into harvard This one specifically looked at harvard right so if you are a child of a person who works at harvard you can get an exception. If you are an athlete you can get an exception. Was that an exception. It means that you're held to slightly right not exactly the same high. Sat's or right that kind of thing and and it it what happens. Is we think well those exceptions go to my black and minority students. When actually they don't. The vast majority of people at elite schools get for instance athletic scholarships or white. We think of the football and the basketball team. Forget about the lacrosse team. And the soccer team and crew team and the golf team and tennis team who that destroys the night and then you know the the staff and the professors are disproportionately white and the people who gave big donations which was who also get an exceptional are disproportionately white. And so what you have is a small group of black people. And latino people in an asian people who got in on what white people call affirmative action but those students are still among the highest performers in the school district. Set the schools. And you've got a bunch of mediocre white kids who just got him because they knew somebody and what happens. Is the excellence of those asian. Black and latino students dais supplement the school's reputation for the white kids. Who just somebody so. It's not that just that those schools are mixed personally white. Is that those white students who graduate. Get the benefit from having these smart black and latino and asian kids attend the school because those students worked harder and the white students. Just newsom bad. Well it depends exactly we're talking about. It's it's hard to get into harvard. If you're anybody by a main ally legacies at health yet those kids. It's crazy now. It's it's crazy heart and they could take an entire classes. Kids got eight hundreds on right and the other thing. I often point out his like. You're thinking more of like trinity right so it other thing. I also often talk about is like if you're going like i think there's a a misunderstanding of how affirmative action in those schools work any school the most elite ones in that they think that if a black kid got in they got in because they didn't achieve in high school and what it is is less..

We watch Omar and tallied and others. These are Radical individuals. Will you tell us? What What did you How do you make this out? Well, you know, I have to tell you as much as every tweet that she does revealed her ideology. It's not just about the one tweet. It's her worldview. It's incompatible with Americanism. She is at her core anti American. So now we're seeing all of the uproar appropriately about this tweet, where she equated are American troops in Israel with the Taliban, Hamas and these other terror groups. And a few years ago, she equated our service in Somalia. She basically chastised Senator Franken for reminding Minnesotans about The terror committed against American troops were 19 died in 73 were injured in 1993. And yet, she said, no the real terrorists at the time where Americans who killed thousands of Somali And this is when she was barely 10 years old. So I would ask Americans, you know, she has no business serving on the Foreign Affairs Committee. Not just because of a few comments here or there, her worldview. Is that America is evil is that Israel is evil. The West is evil, and that the the the righteous ones are the Islamists who believe in an Islamic state.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign

"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

European Scientists Create First Light-Up Tattoos For You and Your Avocado

"A team of scientists in europe have created what they say is the first light emitting tattoo using oh led based technology which is like the kind used in newer televisions and smartphones especially the folding kind. And well of course. This sounds totally awesome. If a bit frightening the team mostly propose practical uses like alerting an athlete when they're dehydrated or indicating when someone should get out of the sun to avoid getting a sunburn and tattoos for medical use are not unprecedented. I know a couple of people who have replaced their medical bracelets for conditions like diabetes with permanent tattoos on their wrists and radiation therapy often tattoos. Small black on cancer patients skin to use as reference marks for the machines and a handful of in the us tattooed kids with their blood types. During the cold war thinking it could facilitate blood transfusions in the case of a nuclear attack. And that's a real thing that happened. I'll put a link in the show notes if you want to read more about it and sort of grim as that sounds to our modern ears. There are still proposals around to people including children with their medical information. A team from rice university. A couple years ago developed fluorescent quantum dot tattoos that would only be visible through a custom smartphone app. At which time they would show a person's vaccination history something particularly crucial in hard hit rural areas. Where people sometimes don't have paper or digital vaccination records then no one's actually a pretty good idea even if it sounds a little big brother that the offset and unfortunately because of that. It's gotten pulled into a lot of covid nineteen vaccine conspiracy theories even though it's a tattoo not in any way an implant a microchip and not in any way related to the covid nineteen vaccines. It's being cited by conspiracy theorists as evidence that the covid nineteen vaccines are implanting tracking microchips into people. It doesn't help that. The original study was proposed by the bill and melinda gates foundation a lot of conspiracy theorists love to say that bill gates engineered the corona virus. Or something. I only bring all of that up in case you hear about it in relation to this vaccine history. Quantum dot tattoo study. So now you can. Debunk anyone spouting that false claim but anyways back to the light up. Oled tattoos in addition to some practical wellness related uses. The team also expects that they could be used for fashion purposes. Like having a light up tattoo or even fingernails and they could even go beyond humans to be used on produce. The tattoos could go on packaging or on the fruit or vegetable itself to identify when it's gone bad now. If you're imagining how impractical it would be to take a tattoo gun to a tomato. I should clarify that. These tattoos are applied more like a temporary tattoo is quoting university. College london the oled's are fabricated onto temporary tattoo paper and transferred to a new surface by being pressed onto it and dab with water and quotes now as gizmodo notes. Quote the idea of personally augmenting. One skin with glowing. Art isn't new either. But previously this has involved bio hackers implanting technologies like led's beneath the skin and the results don't have much practical use besides attention grabbing or inviting questions about why someone would do that to themselves. This new approach to light emitting. Tattoos is easier to apply more practical and temporary without requiring surgery to have it removed and quotes. So how does this one work well. The flexibility of the oled display is key so that it can move and bend along with the human or fruit skin beyond that quoting again from gizmodo. The electronics of the light emitting tattoos made from an extremely thin layer of electro luminescent polymer that glows when a charges applied measure in at just two point three micrometres thick which according to the researchers is about one third the diameter. A red blood cell. The polymer layer is then sandwiched between a pair of electrodes and sits atop insulating layer which is bonded to temporary tattoo paper printing process. That isn't prohibitively expensive. The tattoos can be easily washed off when no longer needed or wanted using soap and water with a current applied the led tattoos in their current form simply glue green but eventually could produce any color using the same rgb approach that oled screens. Us and quote won't professor franken says saline lead author on the study notes that they've demonstrated a proof of concept that d- tattoos can be made cheaply and at scale. There's still a number of kinks to work out. Like normal temporary tattoos these ones degrade pretty quickly especially when more on a moving human and they still need figure out how to integrate them with a battery or super capacitor in the lab. They're currently hooked up to an external power source so oily tattoos might not become into the public too quickly but the technology is there and it will probably happen before

Feb 3, 1971: Frank Serpico Is Shot

"On february third. Nineteen seventy-one nypd. Detective frank serpico was shot in the face during a drug bust when franks partners refuse to help him. He was shot in the face. Many wondered if the nypd headset. Frank up my guest hosts ashen. Elena are going to take over from here to discuss the circumstances that resulted in frank. Serpico shooting and what happened when he survived. Thanks vanessa frank. Serpico always wanted to be a cop for him. It was never about the power or the possibility of seeing his name in the papers. Frank serpico merely wanted to make new york city place. Unfortunately when frank joined the nypd. In september of nineteen fifty-nine the department was experiencing rampant corruption as a kid. Frank witnessed firsthand. How a cop could abuse his authority while working in his father's shop an officer came in. First you shine when frank finished the officer got up and left without paying. Frank was stunned but assumed the officer was an outlier. Just a bad apple. He got a rude awakening. Once he became a patrolman himself years later when frank was still a police cadet he and his partner arrested. A couple of suspects while protecting vandalized synagogue. They thought the nature of the arrest should have led to some kind of award but the precinct clerk only agreed to make a note for a citation if franken his partner slipped them a few bucks. Frank realized that bribery was the key to success in the department but he refused to accept that instead he would stay honest and work his way to the top by doing good police. Work throughout the nineteen sixties. Frank didn't partake in any of the graphs are corruption. He knew his partners might take payoffs but he wouldn't. Naturally this made cops suspicious of him and it didn't help that. Frank looked nothing like a cop as a plainclothes officer. Frank didn't have to adhere to a standard dress code so he decided to look like his personality. He was bohemian long hair. Long beard psychedelic clothes. Frank lived in greenwich village and hung out with the counterculture. He was the complete antithesis of the nypd. Finally in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven alongside only ally. Detective david dirk. Frank started making noise to the departments higher ups and authorities at city hall for three years. They brought credible evidence of police corruption. And yet nothing was done. Fed up franken. david did the unimaginable. They went to the press in the middle of one thousand nine hundred seventy the new york times published an expose on corruption in the nypd. The report tarnished the nypd and led to the nap commissions formation. An official investigation into police corruption. All thanks to frank serpico in the department nuit frank coming forward. Put an even bigger target on his back by the end of nineteen seventy. He was transferred to narcotics where he was a total pariah. Frank serpico was shot in the face on february third nineteen seventy-one during what was supposed to be a routine drug bust however his partners refused to help him and let him bleed out in the hallway. He only lived because an elderly tenant called the paramedics. Frank miraculously survived though. He was left with bullet fragments in his skull and permanent hearing loss and despite the attempt on his life frank refused to remain silent later that year. He testified before the knapp commission making him one of the most important officers to testify against the police. A year later frank retired from the nypd and lived in europe until one thousand nine hundred eighty since then. He's continued to speak out against corruption and police brutality. He's still holds out. Hope that there will be fair and honest cops. Patrolling our streets.

This top cancer scientist thought he knew a lot about cancer. Then he got it.

"I wanted. I didn't want to have not only smoldering away in my pelvis. bit also small does away and you hit. It's always in your head as much as i could rationalize it and say i'm very scientific in my approach things and it wasn't a problem every day would come to me at three o'clock in the morning when i sat a worrying about all the other things worry about three o'clock in the morning you will saying parts of them and the body that they will never really say themselves. Also get tonight. It's an extraordinary thing that that was true kind of but it is still amazes me today. That people want to see the inside. Bids cannot have my video. I want to share it on social media. you know. i've seen all your videos on youtube. Can you make sure my prostate goes up in this episode. It's a franken. Feel this conversation about an experience. Men don often talked publicly about. So let's meet the scientist and the surgeon interested in nature. This is professor robe ramsey as a molecular biologist and kansas scientist and on the saudi also makes art. He's a black belt in karate rossi's by his husband father of two children but trying to understand how the natural world works was a i love of his and i've always been driven by trying to understand biology and i'm also a little bit inclined to like machinery and structures and the way things work and essentially sells Machines and i like the way they operate and they're really have siamese different facets to them and of causing disease machinery goes wrong for me. The very first day i was in an operating theatre watching people take cancerous. Lump sexually as it was then breast cancer. I was instantly captivated. This is professor. Declan murphy lading urologist and kansas surgeon. He's been in a for over a decade but you can he he's rh lilt and even though it's cancer he's dealing with everyday like rob. He's loved his job. Died dot. I was in the operating theatre was meeting these patients before and after as a medical student and honestly i just became almost overwhelmed by the idea that people will allow other people to do surgery on them. That it's such a huge privilege to be allowed to do surgery but i was fascinated by urology because it's it's quite a a big field work. In it's everything from the kidneys dancer. The bladder and the prostate and the pain is in. The testicles are all areas in the urology domain that can be affected by cancer. Now dick lennon rob happened to be call. Eggs at the pay to mccallum will pay to mac cancel santa in melbourne as a scientist rob's focused on amongst other tricky conundrums developing vaccines that target gastrointestinal cancers like colorectal cancer as a surgeon declines leading the way with us robotics in the operating theatre and often the cancer arena. You'll find that scientists and surgeons just don't traditionally makes much but robin declan like many others at paid amac a different because i want to do science. That reflects the needs of people with cancer and the clinicians trading them are remember being at a hospital where declan was doing a tag team robotic procedure on a patient was having some colorectal surgery plus a prostatectomy and i was there on saturday morning with my eyes pocket collecting some samples clincal trial without doing their in the operating room because these patients have agreed to be part of a trial in that case. That was a patient to kansas. Quite complex work but rob wanted some tissue as some cancerous tissue to take into the lab. And i was watching these two guys work. Seamlessly together is something is a of beauty in any group of people that do things well together and there's almost subliminal communication. What's coming next that i'm bumping to each other The theater staff all expert. They work as attainments really like a formula one team. It a stop and i'd never. I've never worked in the center where you will have a a professor of colorectal science in the operating room with you so and we get used to that at peter. Mac it's the same prostate the same for melanoma central breast and and i just find as an extraordinary environment. I've never worked in a place that has that. Degree of translational multidisciplinary care where people are. They're asking the questions taking the tissue doing trials etcetera etcetera. And it's just a extraordinary. I can do some cool things in my lab question. I of been geneticists for most of my research life and we can do cool things with jane's in cells and also indeed on animals and you can find great science out of that but does it always reflect what's going on in the patient and the answer is sometimes but not always and i want to the always it is relevant. What happens in a patient. It's all about the patient in the has always westbound lot that though so these two colleagues late in their fields in cancer but then kind of a sudden curve ball and a role change. The scientists in the surgeon were about to become the surgeon. And he's patient he's rob i have a great jp. I've been going to for quite a long time. Really thoughtful considerate kanda guy. We've we always have a great show. When i go to visit him. I have a checkup every six months. For basically blood blood pressure to have a level that cannot be controlled just by exercise and diet.

"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens

"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

"Ron koslow bit. We'll see if anybody's got any questions every once in a while during these guys are all g- people who support the podcast nuts quite a little bit and i like to Give a little extra more than just a regular podcast. Each week all becoming friends of mine. We're just kind of having a monthly little zoom chat fest here. Sometimes we get out. You know paul sharp from there. Yeah last time. Since i seen them wonderful man a tragic bureau Still going through it. yeah. I know they'll say the how was a bunch of bad out there that i kinda kissed eight and somewhat contact with the social media partly and then my podcast stated don Quite a few guys danny griffin Are the guys who did griffin. Said he came on here. I started first time. I did talk about rank. Lada so i had a guy get a policeman. I used to work with and he sent me a link to interview franken lada. He said you know this guy. This guy was pretty impressed with what frank was had the say because he was my sergeant in the his thinking dang. This guy's landed out there. I didn't know frank when he was in chicago. The players chicago. But i didn't know frank I didn't know spiritual either. I have met him. You have recalled. Beat theo our recalled. Because i was running those days with vinny solano indo curdle really interesting iran. What you tell a tell. This guy's a little bit about how you started. Your dad was buffalo mob guy. yes naturally here are Was actually a became. The boss or the so-called called boss in the buffalo of magadino empire. And i grew up in. I mean i got to be clear ball over the world. It's just that. I did not want to participate nor did my father believe it or not. What burqas and so. I never joined a i did become the head of the labor's local to ten and officer for the laborers international union. So i did get to meet all the players in chicago new york city etc etc But i did like the way. The ma Because they were stealing for remembers and one at what what the fbi. I told him. I'll do whatever necessary but don't ever ask me about my father or my family and you know they never did. They never once. Did i bring the bureau up to speed on labor racketeering on at least one of the people that brought up to speed labor racketeering as well as some of the procedure that they were involved in operations with the benefit fund so they would bring back money kickbacks things of that nature but also at the same time you'll learn about killings you learned about other families operated Opened up it's surprisingly. Chicago was always very open about how they operated. As was a sub parts of new york city like gen of each family. They were more open than some others. I knew them about the best. Gambino was i knew. I knew a lot of colombo's Ropes at skoko was a friend of mine he worked with them. He was the one that actually started the soap. All-time prequel a for tony. Salerno all the various families so you meet tomato and you one what. What union is that. When you you guys. I was with the labor's international union Which was all mobbed up. We were up. Originally we were controlled by the chicago. Office of skiable family took over the presidency. But because of new york's power and things like that chicago would dare next up on their toes.

Well throughout their new england New york city down to florida and santo trump catchy quite well i never bet bird so but i knew santa why while he opened up a plaza strip land. They had ordered their tampa with menards. Their goal is so you get to beat the various players and you get to see the real story. It's not like a lot of the will be said i never will degrade an author or Burchett author because. I know how difficult it is.

A Conversation with Matthew Jordan Smith

"Hey come back to another episode of this. We can photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson. Today i get to chat with one of my heroes. In the photography world if samantha jordan smith he is one of those guys that is living the life of photographer that many of us dream about living. It's shoot beautiful famous people. He's extremely talented. He knows his way around a photon or to any educates he speaks. He does all the stuff that one day. I hope i can do so to the show man how you doing. I'm doing very good man. Good to be here in a big way chilly last saw in japan. It's now feels like fall. I got this morning. It's my morning right now in doing this turtleneck like it was kinda chilly in the house this morning. So franken case is here in california northern california. It's not crazy hat but in my office right now it is. It is seventy eight seventy six degrees in here. I got a fan. Good it's weird. This area's just weird. It gets cold. It gets hot and it gets colder. Have whatever. yeah but yeah. Let's let's listen jump into it man. I wanna i wanna get a quick check in on where things are when last we spoke. You were preparing a brand new art form. To be availed show and art show in tokyo. And you get all excited about that. Everything was getting ready to get going to figure out how the installation was gonna go. Phyllis in go in or you're happy with it. I went very very well. It happened on september first. Which is i still at this point. japan was kind of locked down. The no tourists can come into japan. Even right now noticing come in so it was only people who live here coming to the show so it wasn't packed way it would have been in the times but it still had a lot of people that came through. The show shows up for two weeks. We had because this japan they document everything so we found out he became to the show there. About five hundred seventy people came through the show over to period of time so that was decent. It would been you know three times that at least if it had been in normal times however it what was great about it it opened the door for other shows and for other opportunities. So i've been in meetings with with different companies about those other opportunities. I can't go deeper into discussion about that. But some really exciting things are happening. I've been having meetings e even this week dealing with The outcome of that. Well you know it was happened from that show and i have another show that will now take place in tokyo sometime in twenty twenty one so it's really been really wonderful. I am now working on new pieces to go into the new show It's just opened up some really interesting abilities. Some really excited about that on both ends. You say you have a new art form and people look at you little firs they come in. They see the work and they make a judgment call. What was cool about. This is that people came in to see the show and they are statement which is kind of curriculum by comes in. They read about the the work in the the work and those who really know photography from the past look at the work and say wow how is this done and that question has led to a lot of great meetings and has led to this new. Hopefully this new show happy and twenty twenty one. The other great thing about it is there other shows that happen and there was a big show in kyoto. Where had my exhibit. That happens called catastrophe and that happened two weeks after my show closed. That show opened up and i would love to be in that show next year. Hopefully that will happen. I did meet the. The people run kyoto goofy. They didn't see the show. I met them after it closed my show closed but hopefully out. I now have information to to show them mooring and go from there. So i invite them to my show that opens in two thousand twenty one because people need to see things versus just hear it so sometimes you if you hear something like okay. What is that you can't tell and to you see it. I've had again like five. Six means one company and they want to see the work. You know themselves so we had a meeting this week where they actually saw the work and then they got it. Now we've had like five meetings no virtually before but they hadn't seen in the work. They saw pictures of the show when it was in in kyoto but they didn't make it to the show this week for the first time ever They saw the work and that changed everything. So this is work. You must see tangibly. See to get it so excited about that. And how to launch that so
