The Case Of The Dead Fortune Teller

"On april of nineteen. Seventy five the. Us army pulled out of the vietnam war as the capital city of saigon fell to the socialist people's army of vietnam in the days prior and the days and weeks following the fall of saigon the. Us military accused several operations aimed at evacuating refugees. Fleeing the communist government operation baby lift evacuated over three thousand three hundred children and the operation. Frequent wind rescued more than seven thousand vietnamese operation. New life and new arrivals saw these refugees processed in guam before being transported to a few army bases across the united states. One of which was camp pendleton in orange county california all in all orange county slowly assimilated thousands of vietnamese thirty years later in two thousand five that influx of vietnam refugees successfully transformed a stretch of strawberry fields and salvage yards in westminster calif into something more familiar. The area is now known as little saigon. Little saigon in westminster california is the largest vietnamese population outside of saigon. A a result of that There are often street signs in little saigon that are in vietnamese businesses. Use silage in vietnamese. It almost gives you the feeling of being in vietnam but you're in california as a result of that. There is a large presence of cultural traditions in little saigon. The cafes are popular karaoke bars. All kinds of ethnic foods and things like dad can easily found in little saigon. This a place where people from the vietnamese community can gather and talk and there's a sense of community there. This is sonia but yesterday my name is sonia. Chief deputy district attorney at santa barbara. Da's office a decade ago. I worked at the orange. County district attorney's office vietnamese in orange county brought with them to the united states. The kind of determination that only comes with the suffering and adversity that they had endured but also they brought their culture their food and their superstitions one major aspect of the vietnamese culture is what some in the us might consider a novelty pastime. Fortune telling to the vietnamese is serious business deeply rooted in their cultural history. Community members will consult fortune tellers for all sorts of reasons like making sure their businesses are properly situated for the flow of good energy to ward off evil spirits and haunted souls with rituals and spells to diagnose supernatural causes of illness establishing lucky dates for personal undertakings and to predict the future of wealth. Health and love. Then two thousand five. One of the most popular fortune tellers in little saigon was haas smith who went by the name. Jade i say was because in april of that year. She was found murdered in the home she shared with her daughter. Anita vo anita's ex-boyfriend young tran would visit regularly. Bringing coffee and snacks. In an attempt to rekindle their relationship him in anita had been dating for a period of time and very young love and as such can be kinda volatile times deterrent in the sense of It wasn't a serious romance at least it wasn't for anita but there was a real friendship there so i think that in his efforts to not only lure her back but general friendship and carrying it would not be unusual for him to share a meal. Bring over some coffee or just talk to her on a regular basis even if they were not quote unquote boyfriend and girlfriend. So happens is young. Tran goes and delivers coffee and biscuits and he leaves it in the front door area of the home he never enters

What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?

"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

Radical Compassion with Tara Brach

"Hello and welcome to being well. I'm forrest hanson. If you're new to the podcast this is where we explore the practical science of lasting wellbeing. And if you've listened before welcome back. i'm joined today as usual by dr rick hansen. So dad how are you doing today. I'm good and i'm especially good because we're going to have a chance to talk with someone who's been a profound benefactor for me personally which is a term that really means something to me as well as a teacher and a friend and just one heck of a personal the way around. Tara brach so. I'm really happy that we're going to be doing this as super happy to be here with tara. Tara is the founder and guidance. Teacher the insight meditation community of washington dc one of the largest residential meditation centers in the united states prior to that as you said she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology and developed a clinical practice or teaching blends those two backgrounds western psychology and eastern spiritual practices mindful attention to our inner life and then a full compassionate engagement with the outside world which has been perhaps particularly challenging recently. Tara has taught all over the world and is the author of three books radical acceptance true refuge and most recently radical compassion. Which i believe just came out in paperback and podcast is also. I think the largest buddhism focused podcast in the world. Which is pretty incredible. If you like what we're doing here you should definitely get a lesson so tara. It's great to have you here today. How are you doing fires thank you. I am totally delighted to both of you. You're both deers in my heart. Yeah that's sweet. one reason. I wanted to really talk with you. Including in terms of current events has to do both with your new book radical compassion which integrates acceptance and compassion and in particular. I wanna ask you about your use of the word. Radical your first book was radical acceptance. What's the distinction between acceptance and compassion or radical acceptance and radical compassion. What did you mean by that by drawing attention to that word including perhaps in light of current conditions. I've always loved the word radical. Ever since i thought i was a left wing radical in the old days so it has a positive impact but it has to do with going to the roots and there are many expressions that the heart that are really beautiful and i was really wanting to explore the most pure and full-bodied expression of acceptance and compassion. What they mean really in terms of freedom so in both books whether it with acceptance. It's like what does it mean when we unconditionally accept this moment as it is and we fully earned bodied. So we're not just accepting but we're actually fueling the moment so are completely here present and with compassion. What is true compassion. What's mature compassion. Look like feel like. How do we cultivate ed. And it became clear to me that a lot of people have an abstract sense of compassion. Like we'll hear about if we don't have covert or people losing parents with covid but not having to ask though. Be something in us that goes. Oh that's so sad but it's abstract it's not a tenderness in the heart so radical compassionate embodied nor fully here to experience being touched by the suffering and it includes an activity of caring and engage caring so again with both of those qualities of the heart a really wanted to bring alive what it meant to have the most mature evolve version of them. You're a psychologist as well as longtime buddhist practitioner and you have root zoom eastern traditions as well broadly and also europe. Practical person of a functioning. Business you've raised a son. I wondered how you wove all those threads together especially in your interest in getting out the roots of things really the deep roots blah. That's like a really big. And deep question your guam radical to there we go so one of my guiding teachings from this is three saga datta and i come back to this one quote. All the time is that wisdom tells me. I'm nothing love tells me i'm everything. And between the two my life flows. And i find with the radical deep practices. We actually see unveils. What is true is. There's no thing or person here and there's a really deep wisdom and that a real freedom from holding on an openness and were also everything it's like when we send that emptiness there is this fastness. That feels that the whole world is part of us and this is going somewhere in terms of your question that i find in my own life by go off to retreat. It gets very quiet. And i can see clearly the emptiness the no thing ness that. There's nobody here but it's not until engagement with the world and feeling both the suffering and also as i'm just looking at you because your dear friend seeing the goodness and really feeling at that i sent the everything nest that we really are of the same consciousness and awareness were emergent expressions of it and so in my life. It's been a gift to be both really in the mix with humans with social activism with the whole mass and also create the pauses the silence and the stolnis that allows that seen through to the radical roots of the nature of things. And i feel like that blend flowing. It's not really a flow between one thing another. They're utterly inter penetrating but that feels like a very alive path to me.

Why Todays Career Changers with Service Skills Can Find Opportunities Working in Tech

"What are some of the biggest tectonic shifts in the jobs landscape during those past two decades. Where are the opportunities for people now. Just starting to get into tech for twenty twenty one will over the next. Let's say ten years twenty twenty two twenty thirty. There's much faster than average growth expected for. It jobs overall in some of the greatest growth areas are still in the self development cyber security analyst spectrum girl by twenty eight percent over those ten years it support. Thirteen percent sa- last year in twenty twenty there were over eighty two thousand job postings for. It support specialists the number of job postings for it support specialist actually grew by a greater percentage when compared to software developers for example from twenty ten to twenty twenty it support. Specialist job ed's grew by one hundred twenty four percent a lot and compared to software developers. They still grew a lot to quite significantly They grew ninety eight percent ola to period but that was ninety eight percent for software developers versus hundred twenty four percent for support. Are any of those jobs. You think it'd be working from home in the newmarket is most of. It staff guam back into the office. Before i didn't even notice burning glass with track remote work at home opportunities at all in the job ads. And now i noticed they're always tracking it and we're always publicizing those type of numbers. So is that like a new phenomenon. Cova are we really tracking those numbers. Well we started looking at a few years ago and burning glaze his his at data going back to two thousand ten so we saw it trending up a little bit in prior years for example in twenty ten five percent of all. It job postings cited that either remote or work from home compared to last year in twenty twenty jumped to twenty two percent but it was already trending up like grow by one percent from twenty ten twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen eight percent of it. Job postings were remote work from home twenty nineteen there is a pretty big jump even from two thousand eighteen to twenty nineteen to fifteen percent but it was a significant drone from twenty nineteen at twenty twenty. After the pandemic i started it went from fifteen percent to twenty two percent so pretty considerable portion of it job types being worked from home or remote and from member bowls that we've run looks like the majority are considering even going forward still more employees to work remotely. I think that's fairly significant. If more than one out of every five. It jobs a rope from home right now. That's it the the ones being advertised. I should clarify that. Not just the ones in the market but also the ones being advertised that are open for people to get major changes l. Go back to how employees work and access. It wherever it may be from 'cause with that through cyber security concerns Data management in the skills that the. It employees intern need to be able to support all employees because of the effects of the pandemic last year we did see a majority of our member firms. Most of them are technology companies. They were going to continue to invest in technical training for their employees. In some of the top areas there were cybersecurity that was a top area. Sixty four percent of our own member companies. We're going to focus training efforts and cyber security cloud infrastructure and cloud locations technical. It support were the top areas. Were they can expect to see training support for employees. That's good to hear from the members especially because we do our own custom training program with amazon so they do a really good Career program for their own employees where they help pay for the tuition for them to get trained by. Come to you so that they can move from maybe the warehouse floor into. It jobs either. Four amazon or for other companies. Whichever works best for them. We always tell our graduates allowed him to be start on the help desk. You're gonna learn a lot of places where to go with intact but at that point then alive the more forward thinking employers and especially i would hope. It employers would be in that list. They'll help you get the certifications and the training you need in order to keep growing in your career. So it's good to see a lot of our own member. Companies are taking that same philosophy. Yes definitely a lot of different areas to grow into depending on your interest especially Various emerging technologies or save working for a different type of industry. You can really go after what you're interested. In business. intelligence data analysis networking there are gray salary opportunities for someone working in tech or wanting to move into a tuck position for example. The median salary for all occupations as the overall media and mrs according to the us bureau of labor statistics for twenty nineteen they Number was thirty nine thousand eight hundred and ten in so we're looking at just the tick patients. It's much greater median. Salary eighty eight thousand two hundred forty salaries range depending on location of course or companies as irs. Maybe someone's years of experience or The job role if we're looking for example at it support to decisions. The median salary for an it support specialists is fifty two thousand.

DACOR - An Original Five

"When you own a dive shop people routinely either stop by or call us to see if we're interested in buying their old scuba gear or they have equipment that they used many years ago and went to try to get back into diving and wonder if we can service it. Well that's a whole different discussion than where i wanna go today. Many times the gear that they bring in is from decor one of the original five. Us manufacturers scuba diving equipment in the united states. We've already covered two of those five here on scuba shack radio voice and health ways and i'll get to the other to swim. Master stivers down the road today. We're going to talk about decor. The davidson corporation was founded in nineteen fifty three by samuel davidson junior. Sam took the da from davidson and decio are from corporation and put them together to form decor i read somewhere online at sam patented the name and even gave the patent number three dot one two eight four eight one. Why tried to find that specific patent and couldn't find that where he patented the name but that number came up with something called a safety float that was submitted by samuel davidson junior filed in nineteen sixty. One so interesting. So how did sam davidson get interested in scuba diving. Well sam richard klein who started health ways was also in the united states marine corps during world war two he was stationed on guam and it said that he had gotten hold of some japanese goggles and started to explore underwater after the war. His interest in exploring underwater continued back then. Getting reliable. scuba equipment wasn't easy. So sam hooked up with an old neighborhood friend named bob olsen and they decided to build their own double hose regulator well somewhere along the way a buyer from montgomery ward department store chain found out about the regulator and purchase ten later. They update to three hundred. Sam had a business. He borrowed ten thousand dollars from his mother and got rolling by nineteen fifty five decor was producing what they called their dial breath. Double hose regulator sam along with another engineer while he mitchell continue to work on regulator development along with other scuba diving equipment from my review of the old decor catalogs. It looks like they didn't introduce their first. Single hose regulator the decor dart until one thousand nine hundred sixty two although they had developed earlier some say four years before sports ways introduced. There's but as a as we've seen with health ways and dick anderson's work a lot of folks who are innovating at this time. One of the ways. I like to research. these early. Manufacturers is look at their old catalogues. The cg forty-five website has a lot of reference material. Along with these old catalogs the earliest decor catalog that i was able to review from thousand nine hundred sixty one. That was the same year that see honda ended. The catalog was a whopping four pages. Long it had there are three double hose. Dial breath regulator for eighty two dollars. They complete single tanks system for one hundred and forty four dollars and a double host set up for doubles. Set up for two hundred and twenty nine. You could pay an extra five dollars to get yellow tanks. The cadillac had one mask one snorkel and one set of things by nineteen sixty two their line expanded with the d one day corridor. Single hose regulator and a new are four dial breath double hose. Remember that patented safety float. Well it was in thousand nine hundred sixty two catalog over the next couple of years. They continue to innovate with the dart d. Two and a dart with ajay valve for three hundred psi reserve on the first stage they also had the clipper series double hose regulators c two and c three by nineteen seventy decor came out with yet another new regulator line the olympic series with the one hundred two hundred four hundred and eight hundred. The last catalog. I went through was from one thousand nine hundred eighty and decor was touting twenty-six years of diving innovation with a doubling of their space at northfield manufacturing headquarters and the installation of a hyperbaric chamber for regulator testing. Looks like nineteen eighty was the year. They introduced what they touted. As a revolutionary regulator their decor pacer regulators pacer is short for positive air controlled equalizing regulator claiming to have totally balanced first and second stages with a remarkable point zero five inches of water. Cracking pressure wow. That's pretty low. They say they harnessed venturi with something called. Ventura matic something really innovation at this. Time was there microsoft Circuit dive computer. It looks like it took up. Most of your forearm with indicators for deco cent rate depth time readouts and more. It was quite a marvel for the time. Sam davidson passed away in nineteen eighty seven and sam's wife. Joan became ceo by nine thousand nine hundred ninety eight. Joan sold decor tomorrow's an overtime the decor named faded into our diving history. I did see a short article in two thousand five edition of sport diver and it was from nari and they indicated that they could no longer get replacement parts for decor regulators because the parts suppliers had destroyed their mold before they can move all of that to the marez a facility in palo italy. So that's a little bit of the history of sam davison junior the davidson corporation and decor one of the five original scuba equipment manufacturers in the united states.

How does Puerto Rico become a state?

"It's common for people to lump puerto rican statehood and dc statehood in with each other and there are some parallels. Like part of rico. Dc is more populous than the states of vermont and wyoming yet. It enjoys no meaningful representation in congress and like puerto rico. This lack of independence has often put the district at the mercy of petty battles for political clout considered former congressman jason. Chafe it's who was elected to represent district in southeastern utah to the dismay of dc's liberal city council. This conservative politicians spent a significant chunk of two thousand fifteen. Nc thousand sixteen obstructing cities decision to legalise cannabis and to authorize euthanasia in certain circumstances. Schafer's threatened mayor bowser with jail. If she allowed legal marijuana she allowed it. I have a lot of things to do here. In the district of columbia me. Being in jail wouldn't be a good thing. Meanwhile puerto ricans reeling from hurricane. Maria could only watch as senate. Republicans held up the passage of a robust disaster. Eight bill for weeks on top of that. The economic fate of the island hinges on a bankruptcy like process established by congress called presa promise stands for puerto rico oversight management and economic stability act. You'll notice is not a perfect bill in the right direction. Those nielsen bus. Though john this it s mesa people born in puerto. Rico are us citizens receive a social security number at birth and are eligible for an american passport. They can relocate to the continental. Us and work freely the do not have to deal with the barriers that apply to most immigrants and yet their citizenship is conditional. Even if puerto ricans on the island wanted to vote for the president of the united states last november third the constitution forbids it and despite counting three point one million residents. So that's more than the dakotas en vermont combined. Puerto rico is not entitled to voting senators or to a commensurate number of house representatives. And as we get into later in this episode this is far from being the only tangible consequence of the island's status as a territory of the united states which brings us back to the big fundamental question that freeze puerto rico on november third should puerto rico be admitted immediately into the union as a state. Yes or no. On election day. Puerto ricans voted in favor of becoming the fifty first state. The vote was non-binding and would need the approval of congress to push statehood forward Directly voted in in an absolute majority more than fifty two percent to pursue stated that result sets the wheels in motion for the island's governor to appoint a commission which in turn will develop a transition plan for congress and the president's review that same day. These voters also handed a narrow victory to gubernatorial candidate. Pedro pierluisi from the new progressive party. While he's opponent. Carlos delgado favored the status quo. Pierre-louis is one of puerto rico's fiercest advocates for statehood here. He is in february. Two thousand fifteen introducing statehood bill before congress at the time. Pierluigi was puerto rico's resident commissioner. Which is a nonvoting seat in the house of representatives. Bipartisan bill introducing today flows from and builds upon the two thousand twelve referendum and the federal appropriation enacted in response to that referendum. In other words this bill is being filed now because the strategic foundation is firmly in place every action i take is designed to advance the statehood calls because it is beyond dispute that territory star status is the main source of wrinkles grave economic and social problems. There's no question that the united states treatment of puerto rico as a territory of second-class citizens has caused very tangible damage. But what must come next may not be as simple as deciding. Yes or no on statehood as both senator mitch. Mcconnell and governor elect purely suggest in fact november third marked puerto rico's six referendum on the question of statehood previous attempts have been mired in controversy and bigger opposed for example the two thousand seventeen referendum drew a ninety seven percent majority for statehood pretty clear-cut right but actually voter participation was abysmal that year. Thanks to a very effective very organized. Boycott participation was hired as time around but opponents of the referendum have argued that the question was stacked that it may not have been obvious to voters that a no steve hood was in fact a yes on independence or some alternative status opponents say the ladder deserves consideration that distinction between dc and rico matters a great deal. No one is seriously arguing that the nation's capital should become an independent nation. Instead the concerns over self rule truly boil down for dc statehood or no statehood. Not so with purdah rico. And it all comes down to the island's history joining me. Today is in is auto a civil rights lawyer at the center for constitutional rights and the author of. It's time to talk about cuba and puerto rico to an essay published in issue. Twenty seven of current affairs magazine angelo. Welcome to deconstructed high grabbing to understand. Why puerto rico faces a much more complicated question than statehood or no steve hood. I think it's important to grapple a bit with its relationship with the rest of the country in your recent essay. You argue that. Puerto rico gives us a sense of what cuba might look like today if it was still under american control. What is the context in which puerto rico becomes. Us territory rico. Became a territory. Much like cuba fell under united states. Monitor ship dominion through the eighteen. Ninety eight spanish-american war in which the united states took possession of guam had dominion over the philippines. And of course cuban puerto rico

Zuckerberg's Deals Are Central to Antitrust Cases

"Well it did happen. The ftc in coalition with forty six state attorneys general plus guam and the district of columbia have sued facebook instagram and whatsapp. Acquisitions were used to stifle competition in the marketplace. I'm going to point out that. The ftc suit and the state's suit are two different cases. These are not combined which i think could be important because number one facebook argue that. The ftc is being disingenuous. It signed off on these acquisitions years ago so they can be like no take backseat on this whereas the states never signed off on anything so they can claim harm more directly and second the ftc's lawsuit at least to my reading is more you know. Throw everything and the kitchen sink in. Their people are reading everything they want to. Intuit consumers have seen their privacy harmed. Advertisers have choice limited. The marketplace has been distorted. Whereas i think the state's case is more directly about the marketplace being distorted conversely though the ftc's suit explicitly seeks to unwind the instagram and whatsapp acquisitions to make those spun out as independent companies whereas the states cases in my opinion more vague. About what they're looking for in terms of dress. But i'm not a lawyer so feel free to correct those takes but quoting the verge for nearly a decade facebook has used its dominates and monopoly power to crush smaller rivals and snuff out. Competition new york state attorney general letitia. James said in a press conference today. James is leading the group of attorneys general quote. Facebook used vast amounts of money to acquire potential rivals before they could threaten the company's dominance and quote the federal trade commission brought a separate lawsuit against facebook on similar grounds announced at the same time as the state's lawsuit. The ftc case goes further than the state case explicitly calling on the court unwind the acquisitions of instagram and whatsapp spinning off both into independent companies quote. Our aim is to rollback facebook's anticompetitive conduct and restore competition so that innovation and free competition can thrive said ian connor director of the ftc's bureau of competition in a statement. The ftc case also echoes the state attorney. General's claim about anticompetitive use of platform power particularly facebook's practice of quote cutting off access to blunt perceived competitive threats and quote the ftc case sites facebook's decision to block vines friend finding feature after the twitter acquisition as a particularly flagrant instance of this behavior and quote facebook of course had a response to the lawsuit saying they are revisionist history and that this whole case is unprecedented. Jennifer newstead facebook's general counsel wrote quote the federal trade commission and state attorneys general today attack to acquisitions that we made instagram in two thousand twelve. And what's happened. Two thousand fourteen. These transactions were intended to provide better products for the people who use them and they unquestionably did both of these acquisitions were reviewed by relevant antitrust regulators at the time the ftc conducted an in-depth second request of the instagram transaction in two thousand twelve before voting unanimously to clear it. The european commission reviewed the what's app transaction in two thousand fourteen and found no risk of harm to competition in any potential market regulators. Correctly allow these deals to move forward because they did not threaten competition now many years later with seemingly no regard for settled law or the consequences to innovation and investment. The agency is saying it. Got it wrong and wants a do over in addition to being revisionist history. This is simply not how the antitrust laws are supposed to work. No american antitrust enforcer has ever brought a case like this before and for good reason. The ftc states stood by for years while facebook invested billions of dollars and millions of hours to make instagram and whatsapp into the apps that users enjoy today and notably to ftc voted against the action that the ftc has taken today now. The agency has announced that no sale will ever be final no matter the resulting harm to consumers or the chilling effect on innovation when we acquired instagram and whatsapp. We believe these companies would be a great benefit to our facebook users and that we could help transform them into something even better and we did this lawsuit. Risks sowing doubt and uncertainty about the us government's own merger review process and weather acquiring businesses can actually rely on the outcomes of the legal process and quote.

FTC sues to break up Facebook, sell off assets like Instagram and WhatsApp

"Let's talk a little more about this. Big lawsuits got all right. The us federal trade commission filed a lawsuit on wednesday allegedly that facebook illegally maintains quote. It's personal social networking monopoly though Excuse me through a years long course of competitive conduct. That's a direct quote. Evidence was gathered in cooperation with the attorneys general of forty six states. The district of columbia and guam specifically called out as anticompetitive practices or as those practices are the acquisition of instagram and whatsapp an api restrictions on software developers Ftc is asking the court to order facebook to sell off. What's app and instagram. Cheese prohibit anti-competitive conditions envelope burs and require notice and prior approval of future mergers and acquisitions similar lawsuit was filed by new york attorney. General lati- let Excuse me latifah james. I believe i said joined by the same states and territories. That is a hardcore lawsuit. Tom merritt gigantic. Yes it is i. Let's just say up front. The chances of them actually getting a court even if this went all the way to the supreme court to agree to make facebook divest itself of instagram. And what's up very low not impossible but it's low so you know. Don't don't get too excited if you if you want instagram and whatsapp to be spun out. It's doubtful that will happen What they'll probably is some kind of reparations. Kind of fine. Maybe a change in business practices. I imagine they could have a good chance of getting facebook to have to agree to the notice and approval of future mergers and acquisitions. That part does seem likely but it will be interesting to follow this case and see where it goes because it was. It's a long shot to get this and so a lot of people weren't sure if the ftc would even bring this kind of charge that they might go after a smaller remedy but they're basically accusing facebook of buying instagram to neutralize a direct threat in instagram and make it more difficult for other social networks to compete. Kind of the same thing with what's up. They they wanted to neutralize. Whatsapp is a threat to facebook and make it harder for other messaging apps to get in there that was gonna be real hard to to prove though because we have a lot of competitive messaging apps out there so it doesn't seem like they've really suppressed the the market for that and then the the i think where i think you have the most fertile ground to get a court to agree which is the restrictions they put on third party developers on on what they can and can't do not only on facebook but if they use the api for example. The ftc uses this in their press. Release in two thousand thirteen twitter launched vine which let users shooting share short video segments and in response facebook shutdown the api that would have allowed vine to access friends through facebook. That is an anticompetitive practice whether they're abusing their monopoly to do it or not. We'll be the question. The court will decide the big story and the kind of happen mid day today. We were all sort of scrambling around like okay. This this is actually a big story. You know a lot of people are like this is a really big deal because look the. Us is going to dismantle facebook. Instagram and whatsapp arguably being. You know the you know the the prized possessions facebook. Besides its own news feed itself and like you said tom. It's highly unlikely that that's going to happen. Is going to be tied up in court for another few years probably But does it set a standard for how facebook and any company that would dare to get his anywhere as big as facebook in the future to not be able to gobble up. you know. i don't know. What did they pay one billion for instagram back in the day when thirteen people working at instagram. Kind of thing because instagram was big and facebook has a history of replicating kinda cool trendy stuff that that works. I mean look at real on instagram right. Now it's tiktok competitors you know it's all it's all kind of the same thing just to see what sticks and has had a oftentimes not a lot of success. Buying the company works for facebook a lot better than trying to replicate some sort of cool feature that then people have to learn to use now. You could argue. That is why the big weather big targets on this because what's app and instagram are notably gigantic runaway successes than. They were already heading that way when they were acquired. And you could also argue that. Got him at a bargain basement price. But maybe that's why they're being targeted decide with facebook. And i'm not really doing that. But for devil. Devil's advocate reasons. I would say yeah. This is a huge target. They have billions of users on their main service and then these secondary products are huge for them and they would be standalone gigantic companies on their own. That we would talk about individually if there weren't already owned by them so it makes sense that they're the target but the idea of buying up your competition to limit their impact on your business and grow it out. Separately isn't new and they're not the only ones doing this but maybe they're doing it. The most successfully and the question isn't just as a monopoly. It's not enough to save face because of anomaly you have to say it is a monopoly and it abused its position as a monopoly to reduce competition. Sometimes of an -opoly is perfectly legal. It's not illegal in the united states and most countries to be a monopoly. It's usually illegal to cause harm because you are a monopoly. And that's where. I think they're gonna have a problem showing harm yes. There isn't another few. No flicker is not doing well. And when they bought instagram that sort of dominated the image market. But to your point. Sarah the reason they keep adding stories and then reels is instagram is trying to fend off competition from snapchat and tick tick tock so there is competition. There is competition pushing instagram to change. And i think facebook can demonstrate that. Yeah maybe maybe zuckerberg said something unwise in an email once but there is competition out there. Same what's up there's telegram and signal and we chat and and how many other messaging services out there so i think it's hard to show that they are reducing competition in the marketplaces for those two. That's why i'm less bullish on the idea of them winning over a court to make them get rid of them on the other hand the developers stuff like they essentially killed vine. And i think they're they might have a better chance of getting facebook on that one do you do you think the Slack is worth twenty. Seven instagram's just to put it in numbers slack. Yes this lack. Twenty seven billion dollars as opposed to a billion. That's what i'm saying. Everything's billions and billions of dollars now. Yeah five star wars. Anyway i would love for there to be some sort of okay. Let's say we go forward and maybe facebook is find which is likely And is it sort of said going forward. He can't just gobble up companies that That you deem as a future competitor mall and then make it your own and then you reap the reward. So what what do we get to is if you have this x. amount of users you can't buy a company that has x. amount of users that is on the up and up or it has to be for not too much of a certain price so that the company doesn't willingly to you there so many factors in play i i i do wonder how this goes. There are laws. These laws will be tested in court. Now which is you can't buy a thing when the only reason you're buying it is to put the competitor out of business. It you there has to be a valid business reason for buying it and i think facebook can show that i you know. I look back at the microsoft case where they wanted to break up microsoft. They never broke up microsoft. They just put in some remedies. And i think yeah. That's courts are very reluctant to break up a company. You have to really show that it caused harm. And i just don't see it there

US COVID-19 surge triggers flurry of new response steps

"As the number of cases of Covad spikes officials are taking steps to slow down the spread. Here's our 24 7 reporter Michael Bauer with the latest morning, Michael Good morning, and those warnings are coming now from not just hospitals that are indicating that there are doctors treating a deluge of new patients that they're breaking the reaching a breaking point, leading to dire warnings about full hospitals, exhausted healthcare workers potential lockdowns that may be coming from the hospital because they just can't handle or deal with the cases that are coming in, and the White House coronavirus task force bluntly stating And its latest report that there is now aggressive, unrelenting, expanding broad community spread across the country, reaching most counties without evidence of improvement, but rather further deterioration. And a lot of people are saying dog. Yeah, that's that's you don't just end up with, you know, getting 300 days to go from 0 to 10 million covert infections and then one week to add an additional million cases. We are seeing an unprecedented spread right now happening in the country all across all 50 states, including Washington, D. C. The U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam all over the past 14 days and the average daily number of patients dying. This is how this there's a lag in all of this, Ron, you go from infections. Two hospitalizations to death numbers on the rise in the daily and number of patients dying of covert in the U. S. Has reached a level not seen since the outbreak surged during the summer, and there's a concern. That's going to get worse as well. So we're in the thick of it. We're in the midst of it right now. And you're seeing local governments Cities. You're seeing ST Louis and Chicago imposing stricter limits on gatherings in Boston, a Thanksgiving meal that would be routine any other year now may result in a 911 call or a fine, according to Boston's mayor, Marty Walsh, now no indication how he's going to enforce that per se, But he also added a clear message to college students. If you're gonna go home for Thanksgiving Don't plan on coming back to Boston this semester. You should do the rest of your learning remotely. That's where the level of concern is there for spread. And in Cleveland, there were so many new infections reported over the weekend. That city workers could not even get them all counted in time for their Monday morning briefing, So you're seeing that cities are starting to take effect. They're creating their own world within the states, which are also creating their own worlds where you're seeing places like Iowa who once dismissed mask mandates as feel good measures. They've issued limited orders this week for mass mandates, and that's the bigger picture. The states and local governments are handling what the general and federal government right now has been unable to handle.

How does the Electoral College work?

"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes. That they have congressmen or women which means each state has a minimum of three electoral college members. Two senators one representative three so for the the smaller less populated states. They're still going to have three electoral college members.

Martha MacCallum Discusses the "Unknown Valor" of Iwo Jima

"Martha McCallum. Here you are on dose of leadership I can't believe it welcome to the show it's great to be here Richard Thank you for having me big fan of you obviously in in your work that you've done and obviously a big fan of of the book being a primary ince unknown valor, and what prompted you to write this I think I know the answer this I see say but I just I'm curious about why you got so passionate about World War Two about that generation and specifically you would Jima. It was a personal connection when I was growing up my mom used to occasionally take out letters that were written to her and to her father by her beloved cousin Harry Gray who had been killed at Iwo Jima when he was only eighteen years old and the grease from his death just sort of was there never went away it wasn't something we talked about. All the time obviously but it was very real and when I read the letters, they're so beautiful and he was such an eloquent eighteen year old and wrote great informative letters that had a lot of information them about what was going on and they would often when I did pull out, dust him off and read them I couldn't really get through them without. Being brought to tears. So, and of course, I never knew him but his mother, my aunt, an was someone I was very close to and his sister my aunt Nancy also somewhat I was very close to end became got to know on such a deeper level through the writing of this book which grateful for. So when I started to think about writing a book I. Sort of couldn't get around the subject it was it felt as if it was calling me and it was a story that I needed to tell and I also knew, I wanted if I was going to spend the time and effort writing I wanted it to be a real book of history a book where I would learn a lot. So if I was going to take time away from my work and my personal life to dedicate myself to this, I wanted it to be a inexperienced. That would pay off for me. You know that would be a lot. So it did that in spades and honestly by the time I was done I thought if this book doesn't sell more than ten copies, it will still have been worth it to me. You know I I it resonates with me because I became friends obviously in the marine. Corps and we look at Iwo, Jima with sacrosanct and I've never visited the island. You're fortunate if actually put your feet on the ground there and I've flown over a few times when I was in the rink was a pilot in the Marine Corps and we'd fly over. You would Jima going back and forth from Okinawa and stuff. And it was weird when every time we'd fly over it in, we'd all be talking and joking that. But when you fly over it, they're just be the stunned silence every time we fly over you a German and to give you these chills just because if anybody studies at knows the stories in particular that how many people sacrificed their lives and were injured, it's just phenomenal thing about the numbers in the short amount of days where on such a three square mile or piece of dirt you know it's just. It really is it's almost as if it's a piece of the moon race loading in the middle of the Pacific and I completely connect with what you're saying. Of course I have never served but I was on this flight that only to a once a year it's A. It's to you know a memorial slight to honor those who were lost there, and it is a memorial that has Japanese dignitaries that attend and American. Veterans that attend and their families in a few reporters and people who are interested get to go on his flight. So I was really fortunate to be on it and there was this amazing commodity on the flight and we had all traveled a lot I flew from Newark to Tokyo. And then Tokyo to Guam and then Guam alternate late to gene on the day of our trip there, and it's a day trip. You go in the morning couple of hours on the plane fly back that evening and the Japanese government has complete control over Gina. They have since the sixties. So they dictate the amount of time that Americans are allowed to be on the island, right which in and of itself is sort of an interesting situation. But So it's all very regimented when you land, they take your passports away. They put them in a bag when you're ready to go they give them back to you. And you can leave. But when we were flying from Guam to Jima and the plane was obviously only people who were all on this sing of our mission and we had first class about five, I believe. A woman veterans who were on a couple of from Tarawa but there were five I believe you Jim Veterans a couple of who had never been back. So we're saying sort of camaraderie everyone's joking around a little bit talking to each other with all get to know each other over the last few days on Guam and some of the things that we did together before that. But as soon as the pilot said, okay, you're going to see what Jim now coming up on your left as soon as we dip under these clouds. And as soon as we dipped under those clouds, there was silence across the plane and I looked over at some of these veterans looking down on the island through the window hadn't been there since they were seventeen eighteen, nineteen years old and you could feel that flood of emotion come over them. They saw it and I will never forget the dramatic approach to that island landing on it. It's still steaming as a volcano in different parts of the island. So it's it's smokes while you're looking at it it's kind of a surreal place.

Out of the B 29 the first atomic bomb in history. Hired in 1957 former CBS radio correspondent Marvin Kalb worked with the generation of journalists who covered that bombing. Everything was dependent upon what President Truman or his top officials wanted to share with the American people, and that was very, very little. In fact, it would be weeks after the bombing. American journalists would even be allowed to report first hand from the destroyed Japanese city. Steve Dorsey, CBS

"And then particularly because in this will get to this question of where you put these things, you know, you have to set requirements for vehicles and those can drive up costs right heavy expanded mobility tactical truck, so h EMT. This reminds me Aaron when I was at CSIS. When we used to do, you know? Not saying this about CSIS today. I'm merely observing about my little program when I was in twenty years ago, but we did a lot of things for money. And for it says pick. And I remember, you know, and there was still some integrity. It's not they wouldn't do anything for money. But like, you know, people defense contractors would show up with a with a proposal, and you kind of look at it, right? And be like a lot of money. But it's not really all that interesting. And there was one contractor that had this proposal for t- twenty one the twenty first century truck, which probably was extremely important in a in a in a logistical sense. Particularly, you know, when you gonna rock how you know, like fuel efficiency, definitely, drove vulnerabilities. So my dad fuel come books. Yeah. It's it. It's not like a knock on the project. But like we all looked at it. And like zany went to work on the truck. And like no one wanted to work on the truck. So no matter how much I get into missiles. I I still find trucks boring, even if I accept that. They're important. Right. Right. Right. And. Yup. I think the requirements are important because if you think about how to target these things. So if you're on the other side is like the trucks are going to disperse. And so you need to take in the geography of both. The three places we're going to look at the ones with an intermediate range of China, which would be Okinawa Guam. In South Korea was how credible come to last. Because it's a fun case study, right? Well, we should cross Australia off the list because I sometimes hear people say Australia, but Darwin is, you know, the kind of the the northern part of Australia where you might conceivably base such things is basically ICBM range from China. I mean, there are places that are like under five thousand five hundred kilometers. But when you figure that you want to take advantage of the outback to like pull things back and drive around. And then you figure you wanna be able to target things in most of China, not just like a tiny little slice, the southern part, you know, the treaty. If you wanna put either nuclear or conventionally armed missiles in Australia to target, China the treaty you need to pull out of his new start. Not. I don't give anybody ideas. Jesus christ. I think I mean, look, I mean, they they know. Okay. And start is next. So you know, you can go ahead and kissed that one goodbye to. Yeah. Well, we can let the pod we. Hey, Joe, go guess, I actually the base. I think we should talk about wom in Okinawa which are real basing options. South Korea, which is a funny case, and we should probably throw in the Philippines, because occasionally see people think that we're going to be able to get our military bases back in the Philippines, which we can talk about. Sure. Okay. Which one should we do? I I want to start with Guam Guam presents the most straightforward challenge, which is is tiny. Yeah. I had a tweet work Guam small China has many missiles, therefore, you know, this is not a very hard targeting option for for for the Chinese..
