"government oversight" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio

"Republican Governor Brian Camp is calling for a signature audit of Georgia's election results after allegations he considers concerning from a hearing from the government Oversight Committee camp, telling Fox News I called early on for a signature all that obviously Secretary State for the laws and the Constitution would have to order that he has not done that. I think it should be done. I think, especially with what we saw today, it raises more. Questions. There needs to be transparency on that I would again call for that, and I think in the next 24 hours hopefully we'll see a lot more from the hearings that the Legislature had today and we'll be able to look and see what the next steps are. But that's what's good about where we are now because of the recount that we're having in the state allows us things to be looked at.

Mnuchin says economy is recovering but ‘more work’ is needed

The Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, says the administration does remain willing to work on a bipartisan agreement to help small businesses the unemployed Children in schools. Weapon, Yushin said Democratic leaders in Congress are holding it up with hardened positions at a hearing by the House Select subcommittee on the Corona virus crisis. Mnuchin made the case that the economy's recovery is strengthened in recent weeks, citing improved consumer spending, growth in manufacturing and a rebounding housing market. He claimed that it's the failure of some states to reopen activity that's holding back the economy. But Democrats insisted that dire economic conditions persist for many millions of Americans.

Russia worked to help Trump in 2016 election: Senate panel

"Million documents. Hundreds of witness interviews and the consensus from Democrats and Republicans in the Senate Intelligence Committee is that Russia aggressively tried to influence 2016 presidential campaign, and the Trump campaign was happy to accept Russian help, they said. So in 1000 page report this week, the committee also reportedly made criminal referrals to federal prosecutors believe in a number of people have lied or maid. Contradictory statements to investigators were going to turn now to Justin. Rude. He's a former congressional investigator now director of the project on Government Oversight. Thanks so much for being with us good to be with you. According to officials who spoke with the Times, The Washington Post NBC News the intelligence Committee Told the Department of Justice that Steve Bannon, Erik Prince Sam Clovis Alternate Associates appeared to have made false statements to the committee and that Donald Trump Jr and Jared Kushner had made statements that were contradicted by other testimony. How often does a congressional committee make a referral like that? But they're not common, but I would say they're not infrequent. It's hard to say for sure, because sometimes these pearls are made publicly. Sometimes they're made privately. These obviously we've made privately so it's hard to have AH, clear accounts, but it's not uncommon, especially at the end of a lengthy investigation like this one toe have examples of Witnesses say you feel may have not have been fully forthcoming on there's a matter almost house. You need to refer that to Department of justice and ask them to look look into a little further. Would you have any concern based on what we do know now that the Justice Department is ignoring Congress or slowing down the process? This is not a normal year. That is not a normal administration for sure make that difficult to see inside a black box of the situation like this. Certainly there are concerns from politicization of the Department of Justice. But I would also say that historically speaking when Congress makes with pearls to the Department of Justice for anything but particularly around obstruction, or or false statements, types of concerns If the figures of the subjects of those girls are connected to the administration administration officials regardless of whether they're Democratic Republican, the Department of Justice rarely takes those cases up frequently. These were for Those are much more successful if they target a private individual. Well, what a tradition. Why don't they traditionally picked them up old fashioned politics? It's hard to convince the Department of Justice to go after a member of their own administration on DH while I think false statements, serious charge, and certainly any federal investigator would tell you get in. I think there are people have gone to prison for lying to Congress, right? Oh, absolutely, and in recent history as well, So I think that we should probably point to that evidence as well. You got Michael Cohen, who pled guilty to a charge of lying to Congress. He had Roger Stone, who was convicted of making false statements now, But those were coming through the Mueller team. The special prosecutor's team and these referrals are going to the U. S Attorney's office here in D. C. Which I think has a little bit of a body a record. I think Congress just heard from members that office in June. I believe about interns around politicization there. In the cases of Michael Flynn and Excuse me and Roger Stone sentencing. So, so it's tough to read whether or not it's going to move forward. I would say that while the Department of Justice don't get these referrals from Congress from committees from members because it's just a letter anyone any member of Congress or the Mini can write one of these letters. I think they tend Give credence to these work world become, as this one does from the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is to say first that's being made on a bipartisan basis by the by the chair and vice chair of the committee is coming at the end of an extensive and detailed investigation. That's just one person's opinion. Kind of popping off. They you assume have AH, decent. Body of records to refer to and the third one is they didn't publicly They didn't try to politicize it so that I think a lot of watches gives credence in some real gravity. Well, thanks very much for being with us. Justin Road, directs the Congressional Oversight Initiative at the project on Government Oversight. We're very grateful for your time. Thank you, sir.

"government oversight" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"Have a vote she's a senior member of the government oversight committee and a very senior members of Congress but unfortunately other than having a vote in the committee of the whole which we Democrats Gaver and up and seven M. which the Republicans took back in alignment then we reinstated in nineteen we took back the house but the fact of the matter this is a very very important step forward for our democracy the failure to give full voting rights and citizenship rights to the citizens of the district of Columbia is a blot on our democracy the demonstrations that we shot aside Lafayette park and the National Guard being called in was that a tipping point for you and house Democrats to call for DC statehood bill you know we've been calling for DC statehood for a long period of time in the democratic black forms people who have been supportive of it I frankly had been working with Eleanor Holmes Norton she was frustrated I was for the trying to see if we can at least at the very least get her full voting participation the house for exams and we have not gotten there and I think they also have two United States senators but you know I came to the conclusion the only way we're going to redress this blot on our democracy is to expand statehood to the district of Columbia now there's going to be a federal enclave of which will be marked off and will be under federal jurisdiction as the capital of the United States but there is no reason that the overwhelming majority of the city which is under the home rule officers of the district of Columbia government elected by citizens what we saw when you say it was a pivotal moment we saw on my case state where the governor has control of the National Guard in the district of Columbia that's not the case and there's no reason why they should be treated differently than other states they're also short changed seven hundred thousand dollars most states got a one point two billion dollars as an initial this is from the federal government to confront Coba nineteen unfortunate district was treated as a territory and only got five hundred thousand so there were seven hundred thousand short changed this is the capital of the United States where you want to have resources to make sure that it's healthy and safe for the millions and millions of visitors come to the city every year or so yes Shane stark step it's also a step which I think is necessary to make our democracy hole now and it shows respect for a city that is now I will run city there were there were times when it like some other cities had deficits and and and managerial issues and that is not the case today they're fiscally sound the responsibly run mayor Bowser is a the national leader and so I'm hopeful that we will pass this with overwhelming votes I'd like it to be substantial bipartisan votes and if frankly principle prevails and not politics then it will be an overwhelming vote but later horror you know politics is involved because we've already heard from the Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell saying quote none of this stuff is going anywhere so what is your message to Senate Republicans we have sent them two hundred and seventy five bipartisan bills some with very substantial Republican support the house represents and they have left them still born any on Mitch McConnell's desk always fax yet so that this will not be the first bill but it will be a singer and one of a series of hundreds of bills that Mitch McConnell has denied the United States not the right to express its opinion on that is in it of itself undemocratic and while they've spent all their time dealing with confirmation of judges and confirmation of the administrative positions it totally political ideological pattern which is unfortunate and I hope that members in the Republican Party that states demand that there be a vote on this bill to respect recognize and each as equal the seven hundred thousand American citizens who live in the district of Columbia and one final question of course C. span will have live coverage of the floor debate on Friday June twenty sixth as the house takes up the issue of DC statehood but what is the process if it does pass the house and the Senate at some point well the it will go to the president for signature and let's hope that he will sign it he has been somewhat dismissive of the district of Columbia reasons that I think you're probably not very sound reasons but having said that I would hope that he would sign that bill and if he doesn't sign that bill very frankly I think we're going to expand our majority in the house in this upcoming election I think we're going to take back the United States Senate that's a little bit majority of Republicans Democrats in the United States Senate and will have a democratic president so if it's a bit the Republicans refused to support this and and stop its passage we're not going to give up so this will come up again next year if you have control of the house and the Senate absolutely Steny Hoyer is the house democratic leader from Maryland he is joining us on the phone we thank you for being with us here on C. span thank you very much

COVID-19 Relief Bill Oversight: Here's What You Need To Know

"The house is expected to pass a two trillion dollar corona virus related economic rescue package today it's the biggest in history and it includes a five hundred billion dollar funds that the treasury department will use to help American corporations that is a lot of money so in pairs to mac has been looking into what kind of oversight there will be a time Hey there so five hundred billion Bucks how does this bill ensure that none of it will be wasted that there will be no fraud well so the bill creates what is called the pandemic response accountability committee it's made up of existing inspectors general from various government agencies who will work together to conduct investigations and audits into these programs the legislation allocates twenty million dollars for the government accountability office and also includes a special inspector general just to focus on that five hundred billion dollars that the treasury department has in order to work with corporations and finally there is eighteen question all oversight commission that will be reporting to Congress every thirty days leads temple with the director of public policy at the project on government oversight praised the frequent reporting requirements in the bill it does allow you to also do kind of that real time oversight that's going to be really important in a situation like this for the money is being spent very quickly so they've woven oversight into the heart of this bill in order to try and reduce the chance of corruption they will then a lot of oversight and based on what you've just said how did this all end up in the legislation so much of it well here's one example Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren she played a central role on an oversight panel she cheered during the tarp bailout and she is again playing a role in getting this congressional oversight into this legislation here's how it happened on Monday evening president trump answered a question about funds in the coronavirus legislation hello I'll be the oversight I'll be the elder said we're gonna make good deals we make good deals that alarmed Warren who according to a source close to to the senator called called Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer that night to see if they had locked in better oversight provisions in the bill and some other lawmakers are taking credit for other varies accountability provisions Carolyn Maloney who chairs the house oversight committee offered ideas for that committee of inspectors general we spoke about for example you have also been talking to watchdog groups have nothing to do with the government these are independent independent groups and what are they saying well so there are some holes in it Craig Coleman he's a lobbyist for the watchdog group public citizen said that the bill doesn't prohibit corporations from using the funds for political purposes so that means major corporations that are receiving billions of dollars in bail out funds will be able to who will also make expenditures trying to lobby the federal government to either change the law or secures significant government contracts or even make political expenditures to try to influence those will be in the position of determining what the law means and remember that committee of inspectors general I mentioned earlier Jennifer Ahearn the policy director of citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington spotted an issue four of the eight named inspector generals are technically vacant and so there's an acting inspector general serving in that role that means those four haven't been confirmed by the Senate and have other jobs they have to do on top of their oversight responsibilities and Molly Clifford as she's the oversight council the chief oversight counsel at the watchdog group American oversight she had this to say there's going to be for others going the way since some of these recovery friends and there certainly will be profiteering I think every CEO in America is going to want to get their hands on a piece of this check but she also says that the bill gives the public some tools but I think this is the least gives Congress the geo and the inspectors general the mechanisms to try to hold things accountable and make sure the funds are spent the most responsible way to benefit the American people so generally government accountability groups are optimistic with the overall oversight provisions in this bill NPR's Tim mak thanks him thanks a lot

Nuro’s R2 receives first autonomous vehicle exemption from the U.S. Department of Transportation

"For the first time ever the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has approved a plan for fully autonomous electric vehicles. On on the street neuro will be deploying five thousand vehicles with no human onboard. No controls no seats. I know side view mirrors. They were given a waiver to the normal safety requirements by the US. NHTSA now these. These vehicles are restricted into no more than twenty five miles per hour. They're short trips. They have to be on pre mapped neighborhood streets and they will be monitored remotely by humans who can take remote control role if necessary. These aren't the first. We've been talking about neuro if you've been following ahead of this game. People don't talk about neuro enough. They tested these in Scottsdale. Oh with grocery delivery for Kroger. They've tested them in Houston before. This is a big deal. The are one was the vehicle they were testing in the past. The are two will are two at the two. We'll roll out in Houston to deliver things like Domino's pizza and groceries from Walmart. Those are some of their partners. Public protests will begin there in the coming weeks so this is happening soon and neuro has agreed to greater government oversight in order to get this waiver and committed to community outreach to talk to the public about what their what their vehicles do how they'll act. Don't be surprised when you see him. It took three years for neuro to get this approval but if this was way more uber this would be your top headline all over the place. Why is neuro under the radar because it's not flashy? It's two former Google autonomous car engineers. So it's got a little bit a splash. But it's not flashy it's cars zor not sexy looking. They're they're little shuttle looking things they basically call them robots and that's what they are. They're they're very large robots and they're not bringing us. They're not taking passengers passengers. which would be the next big step? They're just delivering stuff. Is this the the thing that I thought of when when reading this is that are they a very very very tasty acquisition target because if you have a thing that is very rare air right that they have this approval to do stuff. They are moving at a speed that that nobody has seen granted they they decided to take the non on passenger route and that is likely why they're able to get this kind of This kind of approval I look at that and I say at at some point I mean are they going to be so valuable that they're unbeatable or is this just a natural pickup for but say Uber which of for example has a lot of problems on their hand currently because they are so passenger centric and drivers enter now. That's interesting does Uber. By would you want ought to buy them in order to get the good relationship with the NHTSA. That's possible Walmart certainly would be a potential acquisition. Provide You know because Walmart is already working with them and Walmart likes to do that. They like to work with you first and then if things work out maybe by you Amazon could certainly come in and snap them up and just added to the changing the the fact that we have so many different people that you could say. Oh my God. Obviously they would want to be in the in the in the neuro business. I think kind of spells out what you have correctly identified as the leaders advantage here for them and the fact that they aren't a splashy and it's only the very wise listeners of Daily News. Show that are going to be able to tell their friends about about how much neuro leads this. Raise the next time you hear someone say well. It's going to be a long time before they let these vehicles on the road without people in say it's already happening tapping in Houston right now. H town baby. Nope no people in them no passengers. That's the big thing you can get your Domino's pizza delivered by a robot in Houston so so

Former House Intel Chair Mike Rogers Weighs In On The Impeachment Inquiry

"To calm yesterday's hearing was chaired by Democrat Adam Schiff of California he's the chair of the house intelligence committee and let's talk to someone now who said in that very seat Mike Rogers is a former Republican member of Congress from Michigan who was intelligence committee chairman thanks for being a congressman good morning Sir so what chairman shift said the inquiry that he is overseeing was a chance for the American people to make their own judgments what is that what it was yesterday I you know I honestly I'm a bit skeptical about the process of me and I have a couple of issues one I don't think an impeachment should be run through the intelligence community that means all of that other work that really needs to be done behind closed doors in close proximity with the the intelligence agents probably isn't getting done number one the number two I mean these are political events remember there are this is not a court of law there are no rules of evidence this is about one team trying to convince the American people that the other parties president needs to be out of office and the other team is trying to defend that purpose for keeping that president in office and really that's what you saw the start of yesterday and that's what this impeachment hearings I think is all about well I want to ask you I mean a lot of other questions that you brought up something very serious suggesting this committee is is not actually fulfilling its mandate which is to provide oversight of the nation's intelligence agencies to do you really feel that that these lawmakers are distracted right now how could you not be distracted this thing is sucking all the oxygen out of Congress let alone the committee and so I don't believe that the regular and important oversight work is happening men have on pretty good authority that it's just not happening and so even the disconnect you saw with the raid when we went and got Baghdadi the United States went in and took care of Baghdadi in Syria rated the the terrorist leader of ISIS that wasn't brief back to the committee and that tells me that those really important functions of oversight on happening number one and they're not happening on even the most serious of matters and so that read that does concern me again it's just not the purpose of that committee I would have preferred that they had moved that out of that committee to a more appropriate place maybe the judiciary maybe government oversight but the intelligence committee is designed to meet behind closed doors and not be out in the public as much as it has it's been a and it's clearly not designed it to try to set aside a legal framework and create the articles of impeachment which is as you can imagine an intense process all of that's happening I'm just not sure the other is a matter of fact I'm fairly confident it's not been that worries me a little bit but I suppose that the argument from from some who are leading this impeachment career which would be that while obviously that oversight is important so is exploring these accusations which suggests that the present United States might have dangled something as important as military aid to US ally for the benefit of trying to get a you know investigation done they could politically benefit and the army those things are are as important more important than some of the normal oversight yeah I mean I think you can do both honestly I just I'm not a big fan of doing on the Intel committee and what was interesting yesterday to me David has both an FBI former FBI agent chairman of that committee I don't know of any new facts were out other than I think with the the clip that you played when we started which was that phone call of the ambassador would make for a restaurant to the present United States from a foreign country I I certainly hope it was encrypted but when you think of that that was a little bit shocking to me and I think that his testimony is going to be really important mass or someone who is testifying next week because he seems to be the linchpin in the middle of all of that at least from the government side what would you do differently if if you're Adam Schiff in this political climate is is there any way to make this process less partisan is there any way for this committee to I don't know I mean do two things at once like you said they can you know again I will I but here's what I worry about that candidly this is gonna tear America part and it's already she you know causing you know hardship in canceling of of holiday plans for thanksgiving because faith which are torn up over it and you can hardly have a conversation in politics anymore that doesn't end up in somebody get in their feelings hurt and I worry a lot about that I just look at this process in the way it's happened and I think boy I is this the right thing to do for the country at the right time I mean no other business is getting done is that the right decision do I think of it that I mean obviously I think it was highly inappropriate for the president to have a conversation the way he did even though I think he obviously doesn't think it was a problem because he laid it out there and yesterday none of those facts were in dispute I think this is going to come down to the point of if you're a Democrat you probably think impeach him and get him out if you're a Republican you're probably thinking Hey this we know we've got to defend the president through the end of it and the rest of America which is the grades you know center left

say no I I don't want to contribute but you know I a lot of homeowners will book again and you know go to contribute to this effort that is kind of a thing you know for some people privacy concerns so this is not something where the police can access the video from your camera you have to opt in and you have to agree to have that information shared so why are people some people saying this is not a good thing in their cautious about this yeah that's right it is it is called a locked in and that is a really important point that ring is making they say the homeowners in control you know the interesting thing about these is that so many of the cameras have proliferated across the country there's millions of the right now and you know they started started as smart doorbell but now they're just a whole home home security systems that people post cameras all around our house became as our motion detecting high resolution for the capture of life not just your front door step it's also your you know a year across the street neighbors did every sort of sales person and delivery person that come to your door and you know there's a component to it with this neighborhood watch you know element where people are looking out of the social network Hey who is this person may look suspicious when it ends up being and the needy talking on the door for help so you know what I think of the worry for some people is kind of a broader one are we going to get you know Big Brother fear in the future where there are cameras everywhere and we are really only one step away from from seeing that footage but you know I think we're going to be internal point where a lot of homeowners are saying I'm okay with that like if my if my camera captures something that can help police you know I'm I'm I'm happy to help yeah a lot of people measuring their trade offs for both convenience and safety I in all of this you know a story that came out in the last twenty four hours or so about these big technology companies I have so much access to surveillance apple has no apologize for allowing contractors to listen to voice recordings of sciri users people and do you know engaging in everyday activity contractors were able to listen in on some of that I know apple issuing an apology and so when you hear a story like that drove we also think about with companies like Amazon having access to so much video footage around the country this is not a government this is not we don't have oversight over this is a private company we're basically saying we trust you not to mess this up and our people on guard for that particular thing yeah I mean that's a great point and yet people are starting to think about that trade off morning off and you know and and working with a lot of cases where privacy and surveillance for to come into play where a lot of people are okay with that they're they're happy to find it over but maybe not everybody is okay with that right in there is sort of a public right to privacy and in a way and not you you're not really expecting to be surveilled and you're just going down residential block you know the the the the one thing that some some water after having back you know the police required everybody to put a camera on their front doorstep we all you know recoil right that would be something that would be feel really ought to us and yet you know because it's a it's a private company that pushing it and and I should say you know that ring is owned by Amazon Amazon is is founded by Jack Baker on Kalashnikov I just need to say that you know he is looses what we're private company comes in and offers a not for the convenience and utility that that people are wanting I should we be at okay with that and in that case as well that's kind of the big questions you know this this harkens to something that happened in my neighborhood one of my neighbors was having a problem with someone who who is new to the neighborhood and he was just really at anyway they were having a problem and he put it put cameras in his windows you know to catch different you know his driver and everything one of his cameras the red dot you could see in their backyard at their pool you know from what his so every time she was every time I go out to my car every time I go through my art I crossed that red dot I know what triggers is Cameron he takes a picture and the cops like there's nothing you can do about it yeah nothing you can do about it and and and I this this reminds me kind of of that as these cameras get more and more widespread you're gonna be going out in your backyard and you're here to click click click click click click click all the neighbors you to surveillance equipment goes off I don't think we want to live in that world yeah a lot of people are honored by that I mean you think about you know a place where you're never expecting surveillance right you're expected to go into a store and the sort of on camera but this needs a residential neighborhood yeah and so yeah I mean there are a lot of success for the main points to a package he's being haunted in other words you know what sort of bad guys but you know there's all the stories when you go into the neighbor's social networking and this is something you know I have a ring in my home I live in their own and you know one of is sort of nearby neighborhood had a couple kids who are you know is Halloween it was but it was early in the day that they didn't have a costume on but it was near school anyway they knocked on the door and you know that the person at the door never really answered in in the kids walk away and nothing ever happened but they posted the footage on to the social network in it with you know these kids faces in high definition you can clearly tell who they were and you know this if you've got thousands of using people were commenting on others insinuation that these kids were up to no good and so you know that you know I you can imagine that being a parent yeah you know having concern about that in sort of on a broader scale thinking of all of these millions of cameras with but like you said earlier no real government oversight right and private rules only apply you know that's a that's a concerning reality we're living in Hey drew before before I let you go thirty seconds you're in a Washington DC is offering for instance rebate programs to have people install these cameras to help to help cops in their law enforcement duties but are there any jurisdictions you're aware of that are pushing back against these types of surveillance systems you know there are a couple police department if they ring has offered a three cameras and we're not comfortable with giving us out because we don't want to be sort of misconstrued as being a self person for anyone private company interesting some communities I can print that they're saying no to things like facial recognition I think that's going to be the big debate in the future how how comfortable are all is one person how comfortable are we have the people with with this greater surveillance yeah I think one I think we're one good publicize scandal away from this becoming a big deal I drew Harwell thanks a lot really appreciate it this

When you enter any Cleveland Clinic emergency room, these days, the first stop is through a metal detector what I'm doing now Bagley. Sure, there's no weapons. Okay.

Metal detectors were installed in response to what CEO Tom hostage is calling an epidemic varies a very fundamental problem in US healthcare did very few people speak about violence. Against healthcare workers daily, literally daily we exposed to violent odd burst in particularly emergency rooms, many health care workers like those here in the clinics ER say physical. Verbal abuse comes primarily from patients, some of whom are disoriented because of illness or medication sometimes, nurses and doctors are abused by family members who are on edge because their loved one is so ill the clinic is also now using other safety measures like panic buttons on ID badges, and there are more safety cameras and playing close officers in ers, but these incidents aren't limited to emergency rooms, there was one point where she swum and she had just glanced off the side of my chant. That's intensive care nurse Alicia shin who works in Los Angeles. At the university of southern California's kick hospital, she tells the story of a patient who broke free from and then kicked punched her in the chest before throwing that swing at her. Face. If I had dodged that punch. She could have knocked me out chain, very well could have killed me. Shin says the encounter left her shaken an anxious when she returned to work days later, sin says she used to be afraid to speak out about these type of attacks. Because of what she says is a culture of accepting violence in most hospitals. It is expected that you're gonna get from time to time, according to the patient safety and health administration incidence of serious workplace violence are four times more common in healthcare than in private industry groups, representing doctors and nurses say while the voluntary safety improvements that some hospitals have enacted are a good first step more needs to be done. But show Mahan is with the labor group national, nurses, United as she says hospital culture needs to change. So what happens if they do report is in some cases. And fortunately, they are treated as if they are the ones who don't know how. To do their job or their fault that this happened. There's a lot of focus on DS collation techniques. Those are helpful tools, but oftentimes they'll use to blame workers in California, the nurses labor union pushed for a law giving OSHA more authority to monitor hospital safety. The group is now backing a national effort to do the same thing this standard, we're recommending federally Halsey employer responsible. It mandates reporting of the incidents and transparency under proposed legislation hospitals would be required to implement violence prevention plans and could face fines for not reporting incidents to OSHA.

Opioid addiction in US: 7 in 10 say it's a very serious

"It's getting worse last year. We lost eighty thousand people to drug overdose. We've heard on this radio show, many times former Governor Chris Christie talking about the fact that four out of five opioid addictions. The US are caused by medical prescriptions. We're talking about doctors who. Give prescription drugs to people with this powerful class of drugs unnecessarily, giving it to them for back pain. Menstrual pain hangnails headaches. I mean, anything they can think about to put people on opioids not all doctors. Because most doctors understand on are trained to know that this is one of the most addictive one of the most powerful drugs, you can give a human being. And it's supposed to be reserved for end times and times, meaning somebody is dying of cancer. They're in pain. You get them out of pain by giving them something anything so that they have quality of life, and they can rest, but you don't give it to them for something else. That's not indicated that's where we have gone wrong and believe me when doctors prescribe this they know what they're doing. Everybody's blaming it on the drug companies. They are certainly imply complicit in this, and they need to be reined in for their for their promotion of these drugs and trying to fool doctors. But the buck stops at the doctor's office because the doctors he and she are writing the prescriptions that caused the problem here are the results of last week's. Health poll question will be asked should governmental oversight focus on a MD drug pushers, generating the demand demand for opiates or be the illegal drug pushers, providing the supply here are the results of those who voted on my website at Dr Bob dot com. Sixty eight percent of you chose a U MD drug pushers generating demand. That's where government oversight needs to focus meaning take their licenses away, meaning put them in jail. If they're not referring their patients out to other healthcare practitioners who can actually solve the problems, whether they know it or not illegal drug pushers that was be thirty two percent of you chose to stop the supply read than demand. Well, I thank you for participating in the poll, but you're clueless. If you chose be it's not about supply. It's about the demand you shut the demand off the supply dries up. There's no reason for the supply. Anyway, that's an oversimplification. I understand that you and I appreciate you participating. We'll be right back.

"Hi, Jeff from national got a couple of questions for you. I. It is are you concerned that how Democrats can run effective investigations when they take power in January second would be would it be unusual to bring in an outside investigator or prosecutor to lead investigation. And then Thirdly, would it be in the interest of Democrats to assign a prosecutor lead committee question instead of the haphazard political grandstanding, I expect we'll see a last quick question. Would you want the job take care and thank you for all your hard work? Jeff, thanks for the question. I think that's really an important query for everyone as we get into twenty nineteen. And you know, I have concerns as you always do when people who are elected officials who are by definition politicians run investigations because they are by nature, and by sort of the intent to the founders bound up with politics. Unlike the OJ that I used to do and tens of thousand. People still do which is to be completely a political. If you are a an avowed democrat or an avowed Republican it's much more difficult to separate out politics, but you can still run affective investigations that can get bipartisan support and that can save the country from waste fraud and abuse and can expose wrongdoing in can cause reforms to be taken in whatever industry or agency that used to search around in. So the the three principal chairman, you're gonna be hearing a lot about and from our Adam Schiff at intelligence, Jerry, Nadler, unconditionally and Elijah Cummings at house government oversight. And there may also be others like Maxine Waters on financial services. I think there have been letters that have already been sent to Peres agencies suggesting that they want answers to particular questions, or they want old questions answered that never have been answered or that they're opening up new lines of inquiry, Adam Schiff in particular, I think of someone to watch and I'm gonna show my bias here. And I mean, no offense in disparagement to the other chairs who are taking the gavel. But. Adam Schiff, I think has a mild advantage or maybe not so mild over various of the other chairman who are going to be leading investigations and oversight in that his used to be an assistant US attorney. And so he has tried cases. He is examined people. He is cross examined people. He is poured through documents himself, then he didn't apolitical way when he was assistant US attorney. And from what I've seen from how he speaks about things. He's still fairly common measure, you doesn't. I don't think it'd be pounding the gavel in a way that will break anyone's drums, but he'll be thoughtful meticulous. So I look forward to seeing what he has on his plate coming up one thing. People have to be careful about if you're undertaking. These investigations you have to pick your spots. You know, I had a massive operation of two hundred some odd assistant US attorneys, and so we could delve into money laundering, public corruption gang activity terrorism Bank fraud, you name, it we had resources and on top of that. We had, you know, fairly large resources in connection with our partners at the FBI or the NYPD. You're the DA. Even a chairman of a house committee has pretty limited. Sources you'll have a small staff of folks, they can't really rely on outside law enforcement agencies. Right. So they can't do everything they can do some things and they can do them pretty well. But based on my experience running investigation for the Senate Judiciary committee into a politicization at the Justice department back in two thousand seven if you pick your spots, you're up front about what you're asking for you make decisions about what you make public in an appropriate way,.

What Can Probiotics Really Do?

"If you've ever wondered how the world might end, then my new podcast is right up. Your alley. It's called the end of the world with Josh Clark. And it's about the very real ways that humans might accidentally wipe ourselves out in the next century or two might it. Be artificial intelligence or a haphazard physics experiment or perhaps in altered virus that escapes from a lamp who knows the one thing that sure is ignoring the risks won't make them go away. So come listen to the end of the world with Josh Clark. You can find it on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you find your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bond here. What if you could take a pill that would treat depression, constipation, diarrhea eczema, urinary tract, infections and allergies while also preventing cavities and strengthening your overall, immunity, and what if it promised to shield you from the impurities of the world and reestablish a right and correct balance in your body's ecology. First of all everybody settled down. There is no such thing as a pill that does all of that. But to hear some people talk, probiotics might just come close the popularity of products containing friendly live microorganisms has exploded over the past decade at this point. You can walk into almost any grocery store and find probiotics in capsules lozenges. Gum facial toner, and yes, even in pet products. In addition to the more traditional delivery systems, like culture, dairy products yogurt and fermented products, like sauerkraut and Khumbu. Some folks are making a lot of money on these little bacterial helpers. But what are they actually able to do for us? And are they safe? We spoke with Dr Chris Irwin, a dietitian and lecturer in nutrition and dietetic at Griffith university in Queensland Australia. He said that unless you have an extremely poor diet or drink alcohol to excess. There's not a lot of evidence that a probiotic dietary supplement will help your overall health. He said if you're taking probiotics you'll likely. You need to take them every day, and it's best to feed the healthy bacteria with prebiotics. The bottom line is that healthy people are likely to get more benefit from getting regular exercise of waiting smoking or consuming too much alcohol and having a diet rich in foods that increase fiber and natural prebiotics intake like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, rather than consuming a probiotic supplement. However, probiotics might be an effective treatment for specific cases or conditions while there's not a lot of evidence. Supporting the idea that probiotics could help with your ex allergies or dental woes. Sorry, they might actually help people looking to avoid veteran east infections or upper respiratory infections picked up from a cold virus. Other. Studies have found that probiotics can help with digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome, and may improve the frequency and consistency of your poop. So as a consumer what should you look for in a probiotic? If you want to get the most bang for your buck. Basically, you've got some homework to do. Irwin said a different probiotics. Strains have different effects. So it's important to look for a probiotic supplement that contains the strains of bacteria most likely to match your condition, the dose of bacteria called colony forming units or CFU is also important and should be high enough to meet benefits observed in clinical trials, the short answer here is if someone is looking for probiotic to take gopher something that provides the greatest diversity in bacterial, strains and the highest CFU. Irwin also suggests getting advice from your doctor or dietician for those strains that might be right for you. And making sure you're buying probiotic strains that are refutable and have committed to transparency in scientific research. However that ladder is more easily said than done. A study published in JAMA internal medicine in two thousand eighteen pointed out that there is very little government oversight of factories that manufactured probiotics and the US food and Drug administration or FDA found that about half of the six hundred and fifty factories that manufacture probiotic supplements in the United States were cited for violations most having to do with the product not living up to what was promised on the label. The study also said the probiotics may lead to infections in people with immune deficiencies. Another study published this year in the journal cell suggests some people may be resistant to supplemented probiotic bacteria, and therefore we'll get no benefit from it at all the researchers also investigated whether probiotics can help the gut microbiome bounce back after a round of antibiotics, and they found that though probiotics might have hell. With diarrhea related to the anti-biotics. They seem to have delayed the reconstitution of gut bacteria. Of course, more research is needed to understand just how helpful probiotics are to our overall health, and it's important not to give them more credit than their do. Irwin said. It's unlikely probiotic supplements are dangerous, but I don't think that they're a magic bullet L D people are likely to get more benefit from having a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and whole grains on the other hand if someone has a poor diet and doesn't exercise regularly their digestive bacteria may benefit from probiotic supplements. But they'll likely need to keep taking them to get lasting effects. States episode was written by just windshields and produced by Tyler playing for more on this and lots of other gutsy topics.

"And welcome back to coast to coast back with Costco. Bart implants are being brain implants are being put into brains with people who have had epilepsy and epileptic seizures is it working for them. My understanding is that it does at least more often than not. Otherwise, it wouldn't be done, and that's subject George to an awful lot of government oversight. Well, that's true. Now something's going on. What's going on in California? It's going to be the nation's first information privacy law for devices what what's happening there. Yeah. We have a new law here dealing with the IOT internet of things and brain implants, memory implants, are just part of that right now, we have peer to peer systems, we're developing DVD systems device to device systems. Everything will be talking to everything else your oven. You're still thermostat. That's already starting to happen. And the question is how secure is that? It's not very secure. In other words, the technology problems and making your stove smarter. Whether it's through ordinary, I or fuzzy logic, those are kind of standard throughout the field. But it opens up a security problem that just wasn't there before the landscape for hackers explodes exponentially here the security problems. So california's. The lead governor Jerry Brown at the end of September signed a law that will likely be challenged no doubt, but goes into effect and live a year. From now, January first twenty twenty the first of its kind of any state. There's been some effort in congress to do that. And it requires of manufacturers have devices that can communicate with the internet, which is just about everything in California to take quote reasonable security efforts to make sure there are dedicated passwords, for example is not just generic password, and maybe some other efforts to improve the security. It's very vague. And as you know in the law one of the ways to challenge a law is its vagueness time that'll not happen. But it's certainly the right kind of idea, and I think also Georgia, and this maximally partisan time, politically, this is something our newly elected congress might want to consider that we really need guidance here not necessarily laws that will likely get those guidance from the department of commerce have been Bill. To convene a panel, put out some recommendations and standards. So that device manufacturers can have some protocols used improve security 'cause they really don't have much now. And for example, the government would likely require certain level of protocol of security for anything that it purchases. And I think that'll be adopted by other other states the right now, it's California in the lead on that far. Why would somebody wanna hack somebody's brain ship? What are they what would they get hot? You could just imagine the mischief that your son or little brother could cause with that, let alone someone you don't know an enemy, but I remember George right before this election. How many robo calls I got trying to tell me to vote this God, it's on on the on your cell phones. Yeah. Exactly. And you know, if those robo callers could get inside your chip they would do that in a heartbeat. I think that will follow like the night follows a day. I'd go insane. Wouldn't you? That may be what it's like. I mean, you can imagine what happened if somebody snatched your chip implant of your memory and said, look, George if you don't pay this ransom. I'm gonna noise out the last three years of your life or worse. Put in some kind of crazy memories that that aren't accurate, and you won't be able to tell lily experienced, you know, we just haven't thought this through the technology is exploding in terms of the ability to do do that. And there's no way to put the toothpaste back in the tube. But the potential downside here certainly for your brain ship for any. Kind of household device is very very high. And and we all need to be looking at that. Would they would they be able to put voices two through chips? I mean, would you be able to hear parked-parked? Hey, bart. What's going on? I guess they could do that. If we had enough control. It's gonna take a long time twenty to fifty years before you can really put that kind of substantive information. But the ability I think the first thing you could do is harm rather than at a new voice. The ability to scramble what's in your brain. For example. How would you like to lose twenty I q points unless you pay a certain sum to somebody in a jurisdiction outside the United States. It would be that kind of thing. I think at first, and and I can only imagine from there, let alone organized attacks like that in a cyber war or something done by government. They they are using ships now in spinal cords and people who have not walked in years are starting to walk again. That's amazing. That is amazing. And there'll be a lot more of that as a finer neural engineering combined with an ano engineering, but again, just to take that case you could create a bit of mathematical chaos and that neural etiquette step at Aquino junction. And the person would collapse. They could become paralysed or it could be put in a state of intense pain. And you'd say why would someone do that? Why do these mass shooters do what they do why do people launch viruses? We just have a species all I can say Georgia my office. I have a big wall chart of history for the last ten thousand years have all cultures and it's in black and white, but it really should be in red. Our species is a bloody violent aggressive species. And despite the advances in technology. I see no signs of that changing the greats late baseball player. Ted Williams has passed away. His family has his head in a cryogenic chamber frozen, of course, deeply frozen cryogenics. And they are hoping one day to be able to download his memory. That's in his frozen brain onto a chip. And then download it back into a cloned body of Ted Williams, enhance you have another great. Baseball player all over again is that realistic? You know, it's it's a possibility. Now have to disclose that. I sit on the science advisory board of Al core. Okay. Leading Cranach's outfit that that's where he is. I think where. Let's just say potentially. He is. So I can't comment on on Ted wear any other patients outcome, but I am signed up for that. And you might say why to me it's what we call PASCAL wager to version of that PASCAL said, look, should I believe in God. If there is a God, the payoff is big if I believe in him if there isn't a God. And I believe in him. No big deal. I might have wasted some Sundays or Saturdays. Saturday's depending my beliefs, but right now in terms of dealing with death death of the brain. There is no other method available as bad as it is for potentially backing up your brains into suspended structure in liquid nitrogen forever long. It takes until you can have some kind of digital backup. The one thing about that, whatever the, risks and hazards that are, and it's not that expensive is that you have time on your side. Essentially once you're in suspension, not integrative the crematorium why sure in suspension, you just don't care a year. Century or millennium time means nothing to you. Right. Other than some slow quantum decay. There's really nothing changing. So we'll see we like to think of that as a big experiment, George, and you, and I are in different groups on this one. I'm in the experimental group. You're in the control group with about seven billion other people couple thousand and we'll let you know in a couple of hundred years turns out. All right. You might be on the show again with a clone of me, you never know could happen. What about the possibilities with with all this incredible technology that? Something could go awry, I mean, is it is it conceivable? I mean, I think we can clone people. Now, don't you? We can do something that direction. The crisper technology has greatly improved that we can elite shape some jeans, and we're not yet able to directly program the genome, although I think that's clearly coming. But I I think that's a matter of time. What about some laboratory somewhere? Bart were maybe they have cloned a person. And they've just kept it, quiet. It's possible. It's certainly possible. It could be problems with that like the war with the Dalai sheep, and the telomere is still Murray's of of the parent versus the child. But at some point George that is surely coming other than our soul, and that's a different issue all by itself, the brain and the memory, that's who we are. So if you still have memory, and you can put it into a clone body of yourself, you could put it into anything and it should function. And if it does function, and if it does, you know, if you can make it workable. You literally can live forever with that memory. Can't he left for a long time? It's an engineering proclamation of that. But you're right. The brain houses synapses, he's wires between the neurons. Just give you a ballpark sense of that. There's about one hundred billion neurons in your brain about the same number of stars in the Milky Way. Galaxy and each one on average tends to connect about ten thousand other neurons, and that's an awful lot of connections in the brain. It has a processing rate again because of I onic flow of about a billion billion operations per second. Which is just a little faster than the latest supercomputer, by the way from IBM called the IBM summit, which is one hundred pedal plots, but that's only going to increase the different kinds of operations. But there's no question. Neuro scientifically that memories encoded and synapses questions about exactly how it works. But we in some cases, for example, the work of. Gary Lynch at the university of Irvine California. You can see changes in the proteins. So the Senate apps, so if you can model those synapses back them up or simply preserve them, for example, freezing. But whatever method then you have preserve the memory structure. So long term memory structure, not the short term. Do we bring in the soul at all? In terms of part of the argument of whether this works or not. It's a hard argument because it depends on what you mean, by the soul. But if you mean is most of us mean as that's spark of life and intelligence, it's kinda like, George the music that the brain plays and the point here is that the brain system, very crude musical instrument. We can play music on something much more powerful, much, more durable and much faster. And that I think would be a kind of digital Seoul was. Well, that's interesting. You say that because I don't think right now, we would be able to transfer the so-called soul to a clone body. I I think that cloned body would probably have maybe it's its own soul. Probably. But what do you what do you mean by a digital soul? Now. Consider that case like they go back to the original Frankenstein movie, they have the body and they stitch together. But they don't have the brain we send out ego. And of course, he brings back the wrong brain, Abby normal. Exactly. But what if he brings back to correct brain? There's not a movie there. But that's kind of what we're talking about. So the idea would be if you had a soul come back to life in the in the monster. It'd be the sole the person whose brain you installed. Okay. And what if you partially backed up to a brain ship one hundredth of that brain. Okay. It's still would be that person soul. And then you could take another chunk. I call this in the book heaven chip in the novel nanna time shipping waste, your brain. But we could in principle with ad.
