Parallels of New York Times Reporting Today and Reporting by Nazi Sympathizer Guido Enderis
"The New York Times had no intention of doing anything about end Derris fact. And valued his close connections to the Nazi government. As it had throughout the 19 thirties and you see now I can see The New York Times and it's It's sort of apologetic view of Hamas. And the Islamo Nazi regime in Tehran. And it's hate for the state of Israel. In fact, the New York Times valued his close connections to the Nazi government, as it had throughout the 19 thirties. All American newspapers found reporting in the Nazi Germany. Uh In Nazi Germany difficult The government tightly controlled information and Harang and threatened reporters who managed to publish what it didn't like. And that's the regime also didn't hesitate to use its strongest weapons. Banning a newspaper from distribution in Germany kicking reporter out of the country denying a reporter's reentry. As a putatively Jewish owned newspaper, The New York Times considered itself a special target. Bureau chief and Darius, So he wasn't just the report is a bureau chief. His job, therefore was administering reasonably soothing syrup, quote unquote, the Nazi officials. Is another New York Times reporter put it. Endears. His actions weren't purely strategic and their consequences were grave throughout the 19 thirties, The New York Times editor in Berlin helped steer times coverage to play down Jewish persecution and play up Germany's peaceful intention he count out to Nazi officials wrote stories presenting solely the Nazi point of view.

Venezuela Votes in an Election the Opposition Calls a Charade
"Venezuela holds parliamentary elections today, but NPR's Philip Reeves reports, the opposition and the U. S are dismissing the Polish fraudulent. The election is for the National Assembly, the last bastion of power in opposition hands. Maduro has been undermining it for years. Now he and the ruling Socialist Party a poised to take control, opposition leaders warned that would destroy Venezuela's last vestige of democracy, most of boycotting the vote, saying it cannot be free or fair. That includes one quite Joe, the man recognized by the U. S and many others as the country's legitimate leader. Last year, Guido declared as the assembly's president he was taking over because Maduro's re election was rigged. Why does one sky high popularity has since evaporated? These elections compound his woes.
The Latest On municipal Elections
"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott

President Maduro Consolidates Power As The Opposition Grows Weaker
"Backed opposition in Venezuela has spent years trying to dislodge authoritarians President Nicolas Maduro. Nothing has worked instead, as John Otis reports Maduro has consolidated power, while the opposition appears to be growing weaker by the day. It wasn't long ago that Maduro's days appeared to be numbered. His oil rich country was facing its worst economic meltdown in history as well as crippling U. S sanctions. Nearly 60 nations recognised opposition leader Kwon Guido as Venezuela's rightful head of state in January. Why, though, was a guest of honor at President Trump's State of the Union address here this evening? A very brave man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans. Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate president of Venezuela. Juan Guido. Mr President, please take this message, but Nicolas Maduro is still ensconced in the presidential palace. The Venezuelan military has ignored y those calls to mutiny. Anti government protests have petered out. Meanwhile, the opposition is split between moderates who favor negotiations and hardliners who want military action to oust Maduro. The hardline strategy backfired in May, when a tiny force of exiled Venezuelan soldiers tried to invade their homeland. They were quickly captured or killed. So is very stock for us. Right now. We have a very, very complicated situation. That's unhealthy. Alvarado Ah, lawmaker with an opposition party called First Justice. The government jailed several party members. Then last month in a legal maneuver, it replaced the leaders of first justice and two other opposition parties, with politicians friendly to Maduro. Alvarado claims these new party bosses were paid off to switch sides. First, they persecute the literature off our party. Then they tried to divide us on DH. Then they replace the leadership of our party with new months that received the money off Maduro. The Venezuelan government ignored NPR's requests for comment. Chef Ramsay of the Washington office on Latin America, says Maduro wants to weaken but not eliminate the opposition. It is ultimately useful for the regime to point to the existence of opposition politicians in Venezuela, as it allows them to say that they live in a democracy. Maduro controls nearly every government institution. Except for the National Assembly, which is led by Juan Guido. But now the opposition is talking about boycotting this year's legislative elections because of fears of vote rigging. If the opposition does boycott why, though, will no longer be president of the Legislature. Jeff Ramsey notes that this post is the basis for his claim to be Venezuela's legitimate head of state. The international community is going to be at a crossroads where they'll have to decide whether to continue recognizing one way, although as interim president Venezuela at a recent rally in Caracas. Why, though, tried to buck up his followers, But if there's a political physical office, you know He acknowledged that they're worn down and frustrated. But he insisted the opposition would outlast Maduro. No, only are the wellbore idea. They are not going to defeat us. Why, though, proclaimed, We are still here

Dan Guido of Trail of Bits - The Evolution of Smart Contract Security
"So I've been doing security stuff for the better part of my life started probably when I was about thirteen fourteen, breaking into my school computers, like when does as when does. Luckily escaped being severely punished for that but I ended up going to college for concentration program and cybersecurity. It was called politicking university when I went there, but now the Nyu School of Engineering and they have one of these NSA center of excellence programs that teach kids a formalized education in Cybersecurity I think the people that are a little bit younger than me have a lot more formalized education and people that are a little bit older than me, don't they learned? Learned from their peers, learned and kind of like a master apprentice kind of set up, so I'm right on the cusp of that, so I have a formal background in computer, science and computer security, and this is the only field that I've ever been interested in working in, so I've worked at the Fed reserve doing incident response, helping prevent people hacking into the currency reserve the United States. I've been a consultant at Isaac Partners now NC group I saw that Isaac. Isaac partners before they were acquired help start their office in the on the East Coast worked with dozens of technology companies across the globe, but I was pretty frustrated that it seemed like an unending treadmill that you kind of go back to clients year after year, and there's always the same bugs, and they don't really internalize the information that you give them. I thought that there was some improvement that we could make, and I wanted to make fundamental improvements to the. The whole field so I found a trail with two friends of mine back in twenty twelve to fundamentally advance the science of computer, science and computer security I think by and large succeeded at doing that very small ways. The company started as a Darpa contractor. We worked on for your long research programs in Automated Program Analysis and Advanced Cryptography, and then from there we've branched out to help provide those advances to commercial firms and now to blockchain firms, so that's. I guess the medium length overview of where I came from and what we're doing now. Tell us about how you got interested in blockchain as a cryptographic field. Because basically found a trade of bits and two thousand twelve, and obviously, then it was pretty new, so what exactly spoke to you about it? A couple of things I think it was really driven by employee interest there about two or three people in the company that were just really enamored with blockchain technology, because it was a Greenfield, not necessarily because it was anything that you could do with blockchain, but because the field was in its infancy, it was a chance to start over it was there were no security tools. There was no security knowledge. People were building their own programming languages building their own compilers. The execution environment looked a little bit different, so there was this huge gap of knowledge that we could rush into fill and create things that were. From the first step back about three to four years ago, we had a couple people dabbling in that area of technology, and what we contributed was a symbolic verifier. That was our very first thing. We didn't raise our hands and say hey. We'll audit your code for you. We're engineers, so we set up a little unit of people that wrote Symbolic Capable A. A theory in virtual machine, a tool that we have called manticore, and then once we were able to do that. We realized that Hey, this is actually kind of valuable and people would love to work with us to improve their own security, so because we'd already mastered the field through that activity that research activity. That's how we started offering services for
Venezuela's Ongoing Political Saga
"Venezuela is in the news again. There's a failed raid. Actually two of the advisors of one guy lull have resigned. They resigned Monday so I wanted to talk about Venezuela a little bit third rail topic of Latin America so over the weekend. I had the opportunity to connect with Gabriel Hetland Assistant Professor of Latin American Caribbean and US. Latino studies at the University of Albany and here is the conversation. Hey Gabriel thank you so much for being on Latino rebels radio great to be here. Venezuela seems to be doesn't seem to go away before we get into the deeper issues regarding Venezuela. I would love to get your reaction about what has happened over the last Last week in continuing this whole notion of this ex green beret with a raid. That was going to go after. Nicholas model can you begin to breakdown your reaction or or give your take on all this. I'll do my best. I'm shaking my head as you say. This almost makes me chuckle. And I've heard so many accurate ways to describe it tragedy meets farce handler with Alaska historian at nyu said someone else. From the Obama X. Obama said described it as keystone cops meets failed Bay of Pigs invasion someone else a bad rambo movie. I mean it's almost absurd if it weren't tragic at the same time so you know the sort of short story is that there's a a ex green beret Jordan gaudreau based in Florida. He's apparently guarded trump at a rally at some point in the last couple of years He seems to be described as totally out of touch with reality by everyone. Who's met him over the last several years he got involved into that. Anna's Waylon really randomly was last February at this concert. That March I guess when Richard Branson people was having a concert in Kuku Columbia on the border blah to raise for humanitarian aid and basically for an armed invasion of Venezuela by the opposition at failed utterly but from that point on Goo throw with his Sort OF SECURITY OPS Company in Florida Silver Corp got interested in Venezuela and the money that might be involved with toppling meadow and it as more and more of the details. Come out it's truly scandalous and Lurid and it's GonNa Impact Venezuela for a long time to come but There was a armed invasion. Which happened just over week ago on Sunday. and You know about little less than two dozen Folks got got off a boat An eight of them were killed and another fifteen or so were captured by the Venezuelan army. Apparently fisherman actually are the ones who initially captured them and their plan was to sort of invade Venezuela's through the ocean. You Know Landa boat make their way to cut off us. Topple them Dodo administration free Venezuela goto warehouses filled with cash. Us dollars take the cash leave and be treated as heroes Total absurd but what really makes it know scandalous as the main opposition leader. One Guy Dough is involved in this And there's more and more evidence coming out that he knew something about what was going to happen. It's not entirely clear how much he now and how much he knew and it appears that he didn't know a whole lot but in over last year he had a series of meetings. I think by phone basically with Guerrero and there's recordings with his voice and he's been invited to save. These are not true and he hasn't done so to my knowledge so far where he you know says it will support the agreement and one of his deputies apparently gave fifty thousand dollars as an initial payment which was supposed to go up to two hundred some million dollars And other Guido officials apparently had some level of knowledge the trump administration has denied it but in very interesting terms where Secretary Pompeo has said the US was not directly involved and so his use of the word directly suggests that they were somehow involved. That's what I mean exactly. And here's the thing that I would say about all this. Given how third rail of an issue Venezuela is there because it's so damn partisan this topic you could literally make a case that each party involved could have been involved. You know what I'm saying. I'm not trying to be like that's how messed up. Venezuela's right now in terms of the understanding because I'm sure that there are people who are saying well. This is his mother will conspiracy. You know he just created all this because you know the opposition and goes like I don't know anything about it the US. I feel like it was being taken from like amateur hour so it Kinda to me speaks to how Venezuela is often misunderstood misrepresented because it is being seen through a very hyper partisan lens that is so complex that I don't think it's reality right now in this is sort of an example of this absurd story that this sort of like bad.

Coronavirus: cruise passengers relieved to be ashore but stranded in Cambodia
"The cruise industry may have some reputation damage to conduct after how the corona viruses wreaked havoc on a couple of it ships the western dam arrived in Cambodia and allowed passengers to disembark after days of circling the city but over the weekend on American passenger tested positive for the virus raising concerns that infected passengers were dispersing across Asia then there was the diamond princess anchored off the coast of Japan were passengers were quarantine for two weeks as the virus spread to more than six hundred of the thirty seven hundred on board both of those ships are owned by carnival what now analysis from al dill Guido president of the north six agency communications and social media firm in New York City al how do you see it Carter was gonna have a problem here and it's gonna be a major problem because they're being associated their cruise line is being associate were coronavirus coronavirus something good coming out of the news reports recorder virus and the fact that they're taking on passengers now that they were cruising in that area the taking of passengers who are being quarantine on the ship it's not a it's you know it's it's not a great place to be for them for brand standpoint could you start to call into question you know what's what's the impact of having quarantine passengers who have either have or haven't you have not been yet detected as having coronavirus on ships of theirs so my sense is they should have been over communicating from the very beginning and they weren't and that's not a good situation for them to be in right now from a consumer standpoint do we hold all cruise lines are all crews are operators accountable or do we want to win on carnival and say I'm not not ceiling carnival anymore like how does that work the card above the carnival is just is one symptom of this whole issue I think it really is a call to action to all the crew to a court cruise lines to say what are you doing on an ongoing basis within your cruise line for from a hygiene standpoint mcclemon this standpoint from a detection standpoint all of those issues are going to be res now because god forbid somebody who had yet been made detector coronavirus jumped on another cruise line and then eventually when they got to port they were found is having the disease so you know the cruise industry has had issues before with the customer experience and customer issues they need to be out ahead of that a bomb the prime of royal Caribbean and for many of these other cruise lines that are out there I'm really starting to talk about what they do on an ongoing basis within their ship environment with their staff with their with their crew with their passengers to make sure that there's no outside kind of influences coming into the cabin bar because you're here you are on a on a cruise in your all kind of isolated together be it you know all the gonna decker in the cabins are in dining rooms and then you've got step there and crew there you know you're going to be sorry the questions are going to start to come up now for all the cruise lines so that from a cruise line now I'm doing everything I can from a PR standpoint to be out there talking not about the court of ours which is talking about what you do to make sure that your cruise lines would please put queen and that you have a level of safety built into your ongoing way which you engage with passengers that protects them from any kind of issue like this speak with L. dog we don't he's president of north six agency a communications and social media firm in New York talk about the cruise industry in corona virus one of those crisis response meetings like for carnival right now yeah it's not pleasant I think with their store to see obviously is people who were planning on doing you don't taking your cruise anywhere within the whole fleet of where they're going are starting to have second guessed more maybe you'll go on that cruise maybe we'll go to a different cruise line so they're probably taking you see the significant cancellation hit our people already books cruises so they get those prices meanings are what we say right now to make sure that people understand that the issue whatever issue there has been isolated system the Asian Pacific region and just to several ships they've got to do everything possible to just kind of block walls and good and isolate those cruises no ships as opposed to every other chip that they have in their fully going to other destinations because it just took the passengers that are in the mood and those are booking cruises are going to have to marry all of this with with other you know destinations in cruise cruise ships and everything else they have to be out of the front is dramatically quickly and animated movies quick as they should have they should have been out there saying it's isolated to the water damage isolated to these different ships and that's it and here's what we're gonna do with those ships once they come into port and people disembark we're going those are you get those ships input north port what more balls and then they're going to be the clean like you would ever clean the shipper before so there's no issue at all they haven't done all that so but in their crisis meetings that's what they're talking about the messaging they want to get out to the public to the press to the consumer to the booking a trip there was a you know they're isolated situations with isolated ships it does not have anything to do with the regular cruise Lotto cruise destinations that have been there please thanks L.

Address change: the State of the Union
"Night President Donald Trump delivered his fourth state of the Union address. It was full of dramatic flourishes and actions seemingly unleash precision engineered to rankle Democrats the state of the Union addresses when the big set pieces of American politics. John Proto is a United States senator it it wants drew a vast. TV audience live. The audience is not so big now. But it's still a very good opportunity for the president to address the nation uninterrupted. If you go back to a previous state the unions what presidents often tried to do is use them to announce policy initiatives which would then be followed through later on there was less of that in President President trump state of the union. There was a law of stuff about how fantastically the country was doing. Jobs are booming incomes. Asari poverty is plummeting to the government. Having shattered the mentality of American decline and our country is thriving and highly respected again and it was really a description of America that was flourishing and flourishing rushing entirely thanks to the good work of the trump administration. But there wasn't just that that was a great deal of of of partisan rancor as well yes it feels like partisan rancor in America isn't really news but you're right. That was even more than they usually as Nancy Pelosi. The speaker of the house ripped up. President isn't trump's speech out of the parts rancor I think was a response to the sorts of people president trump had invited into the audience. Some cool doubts that a standard standard heart of state of the Union speech. The president gets to people. He's invited up in the gallery will cool them out along the way and typically Congress applaud applaud them because they great upstanding patriotic Americans who who've done break things there were a few of those sorts of folks last night but President trump also decided to on on a rush limbaugh the controversial say American talk radio host. WHO's been diagnosed with an advanced lung? Cancer now rush limbaugh. If you'll a Democrat is somebody who has made American politics considerably worse more partisan spent decades. You know sort of pedaling. Full suits and really whipping up partisan animus and to announce that he's getting the Presidential Medal of freedom in in a state of the Union address is president trump. Did last night. It's not those sorts of thing that is going to please Democrats well. I mean aside from the that that sort of theatrics though there there was one notable guest there in the form of Guido the the opposition leader from Venezuela. What what do you make of his presence? Yes having one guy dude that was both author way to show solidarity with Venezuelan. Also think to burnish president trump's foreign policy credentials us in the gallery is the true legitimate President President of Venezuela one Guido. Mr President. Please take this message. Back wins have gone. I'm terribly in Florida whether large emigrant community that backs Theo position leader also seconds sort of domestic politics elements of that when President Trump introduced guido. You know he made a point of underlining how socialism destroys countries and is not a huge stretch to think that his speechwriters might have been thinking about Bernie Sanders performance in Iowa. And be sort of limbering up to possibly take him on in November. The the part we've went straight onto riff about socialism in healthcare being discussed. And so we've part of the purpose of the speech is essentially to to pat himself on the back And the other part is essentially laying out a case for for trump twenty twenty. How do you think he did on that ladder score? I think he laid out a pretty strong case. I mean if you didn't know anything anything else about American politics. If you haven't been following the trump administration for the past few years you took all the kind of chaos and the insults. What's and the nombre king and the impeachment stuff which didn't get mentioned a tool you know? There was no mention of Ukraine. If you take all that out then he does have a good stories to tell you that America is enjoying a good moment in the sense that its economy is growing at a steady clip unemployment's really low lowest. It's been for half century. Violent crime is low. Blue collar wage is growing fast. Many of those things were true in twenty sixteen m when the trump Hillary Clinton election was going on and but at that point. Don't trump manage persuade enough people that America was innocent of Terminal Tailspin. What we've had? Is that those trends. Ends brutally have continued through his presidency. And he's now able to say you know. America has made this fantastic comeback. And it's all thanks to me and I think if Fiore's of inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt as a good story to tell it's obviously not entirely thanks to policies that the White House is perched But still I think he's going to be a formidable opponent for whichever Democrat gets the nomination in November and I suppose he'll be riding high on the questions surrounding that with the mess. Going on in Iowa yes. I think he's had fun with that to me. Well Democrats waiting for the result. President trump declared himself the winner of Iowa. I mean I think ultimately that will be forgotten after a few you knew cycles as in the mess of the vote count and the delay in getting the results out but what the result points to a fairly divided democratic field that could be the long primary maybe even the contested convention which political journalists dream about and the longer the primary on you have to say probably the worse it is for the Democrats. What's because president? Trump will get to go rounds campaigning in swing states. While they're trying to knock lumps out of each other I suppose adding to Mr Trump's high spirits is the seemingly inevitable fact that he will be exonerated in his impeachment trial by the Senate today yes. He's very likely to be exonerated by the Senate late today and I think two things follow from that thing one is is that the Republican Party is really more united behind Donald Trump. But it's been any point during his presidency and if you think back to two thousand sixteen and some of the protests from from some relatively high ranking Republicans even in the Senate. That's quite remarkable thing you know. Donald Trump really won his tussle with the Republican Party on Dave fully lined up behind him and the second thing which fullest from the first is that president trump now seems sort of entirely constrained by his party. which which? I don't think he's going to consider anything but he does from here on to be beyond the Pale and so that has a very real effect on a potentially on how America's workers governed so in effect I trump is riding high and makes a pretty good case for himself and yet there was this partisan rancor this absolutely obvious divide and within the house. Do you think that's a a now fixed feature of American politics. Do you see a way out of this. We ask ourselves all the time you know how much of the trump administration ministration is a blip. And how much is a norm to get broken and stay that way. The state of the Union used to be a fairly sober unifying fair. When do you see it coming back to that? It did use to be a fairly sober unifying identing. It's going to go back anytime soon. Even if president trump suddenly disappeared from the scene and the reason if that is that the parties are both mall ideologically unified than they used to be and they are further apart than they used to be. So it's really hard to find members of Congress on one side who agree with members on the other side. On almost anything Barack Obama's presidency will remember that during one of his State of the Union speech is he's a Republican congressman. stood up and chace down. You not apply to those who are here illegally and that was treated as a real kind of breach of gnomes congressional etiquette at the time now seems suit of quaint really and so I think we are set on this path. And it's really hard to see how you go back to something more collegial in American earth politics.

"React set of tools that it's animates react components her something like that so they actually we actually worked with one of the one of the creator creature jersey and be right so the story is actually it started with a guy called her non teresi that we've worked with who's not related to airbnb he created the body movin even plug in for after effects and he also created a web player for it so basically you could use the body moving plug into export a lot of the animations from after effects like which was mentioning into a jason file but you lose a lot of stuff along the way obviously it converts to vector so not all imagery comes across not all of the affects plug ins are usable you sort of have to know what you can and can't use and then and it gives you this this real time movie clip basically that's that's not not a movie though it's data and that can be played back by a web player that that he created her non created this this this run time for the web airbnb as far or as i know the story goes he could probably tell you better than approached him and said hey we want to take this product is it make it into something called lottie will we'll build the other run times we'll build the will build like an android runtime for it we'll build an i o s run time for it so that basically essentially players for players that that will play back this jason file on on android and all that and i think actually you had someone on your podcast gabriel recently who i think he worked on the android wine line if i remember correctly and so i believe they also have a runtime yeah that's the one suggests ron time with components for react and i'm sure all the other major UI libraries libraries but yeah so basically the idea of the lottery system is you could make something in after facts which is the most commonly used video editing tool animation production tool and you could use this body moving tool to export it to jason file and the jason file vile needs to be interpreted by whatever platform is running the animation so whether retirement android or IOS or web or like like react in the web you need a run time to actually execute or process and and render the that big java script file that you've generated unrated from from aftereffects exactly so that is one model of bringing animations to the web or bring animations to your mobile applications and i've seen the lahti animations they look really nice but having a refresher just now of the of that tool chain that's kind of a kluge tool chain like that's you know it's still using after facts it's still producing these artifact that sounds very difficult to build a a graceful handoff off process with and it also sounds i'm not sure how interactive those animations are unique unique directional yup that that's right that's exactly after-effects affects itself isn't built for interactivity it's built for video so so you're working well first of all you're you're working in three different tools and the you know the the intend pipeline is not owned by one vision it's all these different third party tools that are added on to create the final output so so so things definitely get lost along the way not everything is perfect you know your animation there's some trial and error you have to do an after effect to see what's actually going to export correctly and work as expected but the biggest one of the biggest issues we see with that pipeline is that like i was saying after-effects is made for videos traditionally it's for after-effects affects so you know for for video editing and post production so the tool itself is not interactive first of all everything has to pre rendered when you hit the space bar to watch something it's not actually playing in real time but that also means that while it's playing you can't dynamically manipulate anything you can't for example create video game character that has a run animation a swim swim animation a jump animation and shoot animation and then mix those things together so that while the character is running it can also aim and shoot but maybe in another instance using the same run animation it's jumping or it's looking around in after-effects to do that you basically have to create all those different states and and then create all the different permutations of those mixed together and you can't tell it to mix those things at runtime in affects you just can't do that so already for a lot of video game developers that require a lot of animation it's not an ideal tool but then lottie itself i believe if i remember quickly only supports one animation so you export a single animation and if you want to add any interactivity to that you you as the engineer now need to go and look into that file jason on file and manipulate that always code which you can do but the tool isn't isn't ideal for that as an example also also the animation mixing is obvious one that you know just because you the designer can actually create these multiple animations and preview them in the file themselves and after effects themselves the editor you're not gonna be able to what am i trying to say here let me step back so loud he plays back really well a single animation that's that's like like just a single video is great a single one time animation but then if you're trying to say grab a players hand or something like that in the game and make them sort of aim up down you have to do that all with code whereas we think in our tool we've built it to be built for interactivities so you you can actually create a bone chain in for your characters arm and then put a controller at the end of that arm and the designer in the tool can actually manipulate that and see what what it's going to behave like and then expose that controller to the engineer that just says okay i'm going to grab this at runtime and move it and because of how the designer honor set up that arm to work you know the inverse keenum addicts and the bone system is going to respect all of that and not break anyway that's just one example of of something that affects you you can find add ons and plug ins do bones and stuff like that but it's just not made for time and that stuff isn't going to translate to to lottie well i think from the from the perspective as an even better example that maybe can clarify kind of the difference between is the ability to mix states if you imagine and we actually she have a blog and a couple different posts about this so if you want to see it in detail you can look for it it's called liquid download or we have this example which is a download process that basically has an indeterminate and determinate state at the same time so if you imagine something that's spinning on your screen indeterminately but then it also shows progress by maybe if it's a circle it could fill up as the download proceeds if you had to design that after facts you'd have to make two separate animations and then you couldn't preview mixing them together and with laudi there are tricks that developers clever developers can get around to make dot com work by for example looking at one portion of the time line nine applying that and then maybe applying the second part of the time line at a different time but it only works if you guarantee that those those key frames don't touch the same things while gal with a tool that's made for runtime animation and the ability to blend animations together it should actually based on input from the designer blend those key frames on top op of existing key frames before applying them to the final result which means that you can see a result that is a combination of multiple states of multiple animations and that's something that's very very hard to do with something that's just not built for real time apache.

Satellites Track Status of Nation's Food Supply
"Have you ever wondered. How much food is growing right now? Across the globe. Satellite data is for the first time giving us nearly real time data. Uh on which trump's are being planted which crops might fail because of climate impacts like drought or disease and how many because of rain for us to being cut down for grazing land. Using this information we can better path famines reduced price volatility and work out how to feed a planet of nine billion people by twenty fifty. That's a WHO small undertaking and it will have huge impacts on everything from water usage to soil health to help us. Navigate is fascinating new science. I sit down with Dr Inbound. Becca Russia the director of NASA's food security and agricultural programmes. Dr Becca Russia is also the CO director of the center of Global Global Agriculture Monitoring Research and the University of Maryland in bow was rented by the US State Department for her work on food security and Technologies winning being the US Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Science Prize Innovation Research and education awarded by the White House's John Holdren the former assistant listen to president.

His from the University of Maryland in bows one of the world's leading experts on using remote sensing for global crop forecasting in addition to being achieved the balance. My cousin and one of my favorite people ever in Bell and her husband Dr Guido Portillo a molecular physicists. have to amazing daughters Natalie and I need it. I caught up with him about last week in Tel Aviv. which is where she was born? Yes born in Israel shortly after moved to the states until I was five and then came back from age five to eleven then moved to Kenya and then moved to the states in one sense cents. I feel very much like an outsider. In a very in another sense I feel very much home like I never left. And it's the first time I bring my two daughters here which is quite emotional for me for to have them here. Seeing where I grew up and a big part of my life and who I am so do you speak Hebrew with them in bow I do. I speak Hebrew with them and so for them. I think it's been An interesting experience to come to a country where everybody speaks what we speak at home and usually nobody else speak so kind of our secret language. So it's been fun to to see them connect and in some way feel very much also that this is part of of who they are two and what things you miss the most about Israel the sun in the winter having twenty degrees in January or end of December the familiarity of people and kind of the directness of people. Anything I missed that I also kind of get confronted with it and in other ways my friends really good friends. Family food vegetables fruit the so Tokyo food food in battle. One of your your light. One of the leading experts in the world on remote sensing in crop prediction. Why full you is is crop and food security such a big issue on a planet which currently has seven and a half billion people on it food security is probably one of the biggest challenges we face in this coming century today day? There's over eight hundred twenty million people food insecure around the world. That number is on the rise again. Due to several reasons one is increasing populations and increasing in demand on meet another big driver's been climate extremes and large droughts as we look forward and and different forecasts predict that we need to increase our food production fifty percent by twenty fifty and there's some variability around that number. But I think some of what's been driving that is one increasing populations to increasing middle middle classes in places like India and China which means there's a much bigger demand for meat. And if you think about the amount of food you need to produce meat versus Vegetarian anti at that obviously has big demands. It's quite an alarming trend and at the same time. Obviously there's a lot of technologies and changes in terms of our production. What we need to do is to be able to increase our food production on the same amount of land? There's not a lot more land that we can really bring into cultivation to meet that demand so that's pretty alarming like increasing food supply by fifty percent by two thousand fifty which is only now thirty years away with how growing the amount of land. How are we going to do that? Part of it is increasing increasing. The intensity of of our captivation of it has to do with the technology of seeds. And I think we're continuing to see increases in yields are low. Not as fast as that was in the past. Some of the big increases we're seeing today is from increasing the number of seasons since I think if you look at Brazil for example with two mays seasons. That's increased tremendously the amount of food. That's being being produced looking at different varieties and more whether it's drought resistant varieties. That's going to get as part of the way there at least to your specialty is helping countries knit together. Analyses of determining what the future food production season is going to look like. Why is that important to know a lot of what I do and try to understand what food production is GONNA be for this current season as it's developing and that's really important because today our world is it's very much globalized interconnected? So what's the quantity of of wheat that's going to be grown in. Russia has an impact not only in Russia but it really has a global impact. Let's really important taft. Transparent information to have global information of how much food is being produced at at any given time that has an impact on how a government decides to to plan their actions. I am policies. It has an impact on humanitarian organisations and trying to forecast where there might be food shortages. And how do you mobilize as soon as possible. and has obviously a big the impact on markets and international food prices given the importance of all that. How did we use to track? Whether it's a country that has a system of farmers. There's reporting everything that they grow in tracking it that way. Various statistical surveys to make sure that there's a statistical representation to that and obviously some countries do a better job at that in a better accuracy and timeliness than other countries. Do I mean the start of satellite monitoring for agriculture. Goes back nearly as early as satellite. Remote Sensing doesn't in general in the seventies and how the US got involved in. This was a big drought in Russia. One of the big wheat production next countries at the time of USSR the US wasn't aware of that drown in that impact and in what ended up happening is the US sold. We'd at subsidized prices. Essentially and then had to fight back in the international markets at much higher prices because there was was a shortage who was I did at Sparta Program at the time that Usda and NASA had together called Lacey and the objective of that really was to try to monitor what was going on outside of the US in the major food production especially we at the time we in corn production and the idea was that satellites were really the only way ah the US could look at other countries in the world getting a sense of what they were producing. And if you look today at what. The vision is for Satellite Remote Sensing and agriculture. It's not all that different. Then when it was over forty years ago. What is different? Today is our capability to finally reach that goal. So you had this vision forty years ago being able to know what another country's crop would yield like what change in satellite so that we now actually have that granular level detail to be able to know with better accuracy. So few do things. One is the quality of satellite data itself the frequency the resolution and resolution. If you think about it is what objects you can discern on the ground from a pixel which is how we look at the imagery. It's the satellite data being open and free at at multiple resolution. New satellites that have come into play both from the European side. Something called the sentinels which today imaging the world at ten meter resolution close to every three to five days which is looked along with land sat satellite for example from the. US giving US close to every three days view the world. So where would you say ten meters just to break it down to that. Means every pick cell is ten meters. That's right it's ten by ten meter resolution. So that means you can can discern quite a lot and if you think about looking at the whole world at ten meter resolution. That's a huge amount of information. And so we've had huge advances in terms of the satellite data also commercial satellite and a lot of cubesats that are going into space which are now giving us close to daily data three-meter resolution and then our compute power to be able to process that kind of imagery and advances in modeling and computational technologies to really be able to utilize that data has been a huge revolution in terms of what we're able to do so go all these lights. NEW ONES IS ACCU- ones. Those are like really teeny little satellites. That are going out. That's right. So they're often termed as shoebox size satellites. They have been sending up in in fleet so I think today. They're close to four hundred or more earth-observing satellites that are called cubesats so the data quality is not as high. They don't have as many spectral bands for example as as some of the other satellites but they're cheap to send up and they've also revolutionized the space of commercial satellite. So those aren't free. They're much more affordable than than they would have been in the past. What are you looking for right? So we're trying to basically look at signals us of crops so one of the things we're trying to understand is where are the crops of the world being grown and there's still huge certainty around that one would think that we would know that very well and And there's still a lot of room for us to improve that second of all is which crops are being grown wear and if you think about it every year that's changing so there's a lot lot of crop rotations and so what that really means you want to be able ideally to know what's being grown in each field during the growing season so that's one of the the big objectives is to be able to classify Within the season where things are being grown to be able to both discern how much of an area is being grown. That's one part of the production equation and the other side is what the yield is going to be and so what we WANNA do. It's really important to have time series of data to look at it through time to look at the volition of the development of crops. But but when you said earlier that we don't actually know where food is being grown. What does that mean if you think about it as a map of where the the world's croplands we have several of those maps but we're trying to continuously increase the accuracy of that? And if you think about crop expansion or changes in where croplands are for example title Brazil and and huge expansion of croplands. There is really important to be able to update that as frequently as possible in particular in in areas where there is a lot of change and we still need better information on where the global croplands are and then more specifically within season a crop type maps.

I'm so excited about the show and you will understand in just a few moments. We assessment juicy topics to get very topical. Let's talk about VISCO girls. I mean I'm still trying to wrap my head around what they are. I will temped to talk to you about them. Not Sound like my mother because I feel like I've turned into a mom the minute this whole trend came about this summer. Just okay Are they killing makeup sales though. Oh that's an interesting beauty angle to the whole visco girl thing and lastly Jacqueline Hill trying again with her makeup line. Who's our gas now? We have had some legendary Duri hairstylists on the show but somebody who is at the top top top of the pile. Okay like I mean there. I'll makes it sound less glamorous glamorous but yes top of the heap worse of the hill. Okay they're really only a few names in one of them without out a doubt is Guido Guido Palo he is the global creative director for Redken but for far longer he's been a legend in the industry he basically we created the grunge luck in terms of hair and you know beauty He has worked with every major designer. And he is somebody who honestly doesn't hop on the Mike every day so we earlier so Hashtag left to have Guido in the stewed. We've been working on getting this interview for you guys for Awhile. We hope you enjoy water break. Having a moment with our friends friends from circle. Okay Circle is something I needed in my life. Remember how I said for new years I was going to drink more and be more hydrated have seen. You're going to the bathroom more. Yeah it didn't go well at all until I found circle and that is why I am super hydrated right now. You know what I'm talking about guys might be wondering what circle is circle assists convenient water bottle and flavored cartridge system and the bottle has this as a flavor. Dial that allows you to customize the amount of flavor you go. This is the best part of it because a lot of the flavored waters. They're just too sweet for me or too much flavor for and you can just pop in the cartridge and you go nick nick now this much water. You don't WanNa get like blasted flavor. So which flavors are you into not the strawberry I'm particularly a fan of the citrus twist and the orange. How Mediterranean very refreshing?.

GonNa quit drinking forever like I'm never going to drink again. She was actually Kinda surprised because she'd never seen me like joke and use the phrase in my prime on you know and you know when I say that I'm really just mean like I could put down some beers and you know like Frank Tag. Personally it assertion say prime make a joke of it but anyway but a so. She didn't really even know but so. It wasn't like that that bad around her but there's something off. It's the only way I can describe it like I knew like man I'm like kind of. I was still at my old job but I was like I'm I'm kinda seeing things a little a little better getting a little you know getting happier starting to learn to deal with stress a lot of stress lot of demons and I was like something still off and I was like man. I think that's it. I woke up one day. Actually my days July sixteenth and it was a Monday you know sust assist hanging out on the Sunday afternoon you know and then I woke up Monday with a little bit of a headache but you know who drink coffee and take some ibuprofen my normal routine and the boss like man. I'm just done the something's not right and then once I stopped. I stopped drinking manage just like open everything up for me and that's probably the I I would not have quit my job yeah. If if I was still drinking and really what alcohol for me took away from me was just like my like my fight fight. You know like I'm a competitor. Yeah you know and it's like not necessarily with people but it's like challenge myself but you know when I was stricken I was really looking for. had to take things the easy way. You know how how how comfortable right is what I try to do. It and that's another thing that drove nuts. I don't like to be comfortable right. That's what I realized. That's like part of my journey now. I'm like I don't I find comfort comfort and not being comfortable. If that makes sense yeah for sure so like all this is not not this here I mean like you know having a business you know nauman line of work. I've never been in like. I'm very uncomfortable. Let's get it right. That's what I like. You know maybe and and I'd sleep John Myself. Yeah and I've just and it's like I'm rediscovering my fight. I'll say and by that I mean like within myself for myself like I like to you know be competitive and just fight for for victory. Yeah whatever that is in front of yeah. Maybe I'll be learning to cut hair and hit you up for job biggest. It's like a challenge be uncomfortable. Find something new and I'm slightly. That's like that's just keeps me going I. I like it so let's switch gears again. I'm curious as to when you added the landscaping and I know you gave a little description. what did that look like so now. You have a stumper here it is. I'm sorry to stump grinder. did you just go out and buy lawnmower. I mean did you go get a writer. I mean what have that all workout so I was. You realized all right. I I need additional work. I'm going to get a little more year. He had won the head that work. I I had a I had a very good more on that for me yes and yes by anything but had. I I picked a start picking lawns up because so last summer and then fall zero busy on on on weekends but then on people would ask me. Hey do this or next next next year. You're going to take on loans. You know people are asking. What can you do what we do and I was. I was turning it down because I still had my day job and I was pretty busy on weekends. Thankfully yeah and I was like now you no. This is what I do just on weekends and yeah so then for like over the winter like west so I started thinking something. I don't know exactly what but it wasn't John. Trust me now. I'll I'll start telling myself off. Trust me really starting starting to really think to myself like man what if you just left here and started sergeant business yeah why not and so like the wintertime. I was like punching numbers. I'm like you know doing all kinds of math and and I started thinking. I'm like wow I could like. I could do this. I was like maybe next next year. I'm thinking twenty twenty yeah so I'm like maybe next year. Maybe I can do it like if I pick up this many loans the next month and so many stomps you know setting the those those those goals you could say yeah and yeah one loan led to to to lead this four is just like I didn't even I didn't even cut anyone's grasses customer yet. I mean as one of my customers but I just had always loans all of a sudden well and I was like wow and you so then then he knows fortunate to have.

He's like you can't mess it up to this. Do this charge. This and I'm like are and check this video out and then sells picking up some lawns then people asking me about some some other stuff and then you know still had some some stomps out like I'm GonNa do this.

The money will come you know as far as the IT depends on what you're looking for for money. I said sure everyone has a different different goals and Roswell a minor and really. I don't really care about money. I say things you know so that that that I guess probably that probably helped lead. A little stress is you're saying I didn't care about like almond. I need to take over the world of landscaping now house. I pay bills. You know winter piece this guy that guy that he flips houses that do more for sometimes he's like. I just WanNa work just enough. Yeah Wow man like that. I I keep that in my mind yeah. He worked where he said in his mind. My man like this this kind of like how I feel sure you know so you know to going back to the questions like I was doing things that I enjoyed and then yeah and I was just like picking up this other work and I was enjoying it more and more and then also you know the the money will come and I'm GonNa do it. I'm I'm doing now. I'm out wait until two thousand twenty so so when it comes to your your your craft and the work are you like super meticulous about things and got to be specific way because I know there's like there's landscapers well we had we actually had a landscaper. Brian Johnson years my boy yeah and so he he said one of the jobs that he had there was a leading literally sitting out in front of her porch watching him do his whole little process and I'm like wow that's pretty intense and I know certain people like you know they're. They're landscape a certain way. Is that stuff that you deal with or is it kind of like more power to Brian because that was mailed to set watching. price goes up for tip here. you know everyone that. I've admit and talk to about landscaping They're very like I I'm. I'm very particular myself okay and and I know there's landscapers that are like that yeah. I've never met one. That's like a good enough yeah. You know it's just it's here. It's like you so you just take pride in it then. It's easy to take pride in it and it's like I I want.

Beer my name's Paul Guido the owner operator of PG stumps. I do tree stump grinding and a little bit landscaping and prior to that actually full disclosure. I did start a fulltime job today business back to two jobs. I liked what just want to be honest with the podcast before I'm actually working with tree service still outside but before doing all his outdoor outdoor manual labor stuff I had a eleven year career in corporate finance wow and had enough of that yeah now you had to walk away from that and now here I am. I love talking about myself now. Because I just like to share my story yeah and maybe someone hears it and help somebody then somebody can be helped absolutely absolutely and I will say this guy has the Best Mellon coffee. I think I've ever smelled even know what's going on. shot the alley I didn't realize their coffee amazing all the oldies. How do you drive bought a car. I couldn't afford dumb. They might make a coffee too. He may you never know somebody's car. I think they make coffee. Well no these somebody's garden. I'll tell you need coffee. vk image. POPs up all right. So how did you get started in this specific industry because this is not something you know especially to stump grinding did. Did you see it somewhere. Wow that looks lucrative. I did you know somebody I actually had no idea thing yeah so how I got into it was I text my now employer shadow to jump on service yeah. I texted him last year and I said said I'm looking for this trailer. XYZ Game suspects he's always out and about stuff and I said I wanNA cut some grass on the side and needed trailer pull more about fifteen seconds later. He calls me. He says you are not cutting grass and I'm not going to help you. You find the trailer okay so I'm not getting that number for the driller. It was like you're going to buy stump grinder and you're going to grind tree stumps. Well and I was I. I didn't know what to say. I didn't know what that meant you might as well been talking Ukrainian. Yeah I had no idea and I was like I was sitting there on a a handle and Madonna. I've no idea research goes listen he goes. You're going to buy some Garner he goes. I'll give you some stops and goes trust me. It's it's it's a thing just kept saying trust me. Trust me. I was like okay and I was like I have no idea we're talking about. You know that right. I never use one. I can even pick one now. If I saw one sure because trust me he goes. I gotta go look some up and we'll talk later and said okay so did what everyone does. When you don't know oh something Google yeah and I'm looking at it and I'm like I've. This is insane because of the price on yeah that's crazy yeah more on that later but so then I found some cheap little ones like this yeah you know. I'm like this is Kinda. My price range yeah that I didn't know I had and all of a sudden. He had a budget goes amazing. I fifty second phone. Call so yeah I'm like how about about this one because now that's chunk you know don't don't even think about it yeah and that was it and I'm like well. That's probably the end of it because I can't go up to this level of you know machinery and He texted me back a couple minutes later. He actually found the machine. I still have now in Iran in like here. You go go by this and I seen the price on and I was like that's kind of crazy mocking to mention a price. It's any relevant but then I was like dude. That's crazy I can't I can't buy that your call me back in ten seconds later again then. I got my first business lesson from him. He probably don't even know it but he told me basically this is what you do you go get a you know you finance it and then tried to structure the loan however we need to and that machine is like I guarantee you will make that money and you know got into little specifics you know and then did he just kept saying trust me trust me yeah and and I did and then so I got alone and got that machine skip the funny part to actually so I was like man. I'm like I kept reminding them like. I don't know anything about these machines. I'm reading this right. He goes yeah he goes Charles Marie Gotcha. You just just go by machines now. It's kind of scary. It's like it's this kind of timid looking but they got a motor. You know there's like four wheels on like it's kind of timid like I'm like I feel like I should know something yeah right and then I'm like what should I look for. Look I feel like it's almost like I would compare it to somebody going to buy a used car right. You WanNa look you. WanNa know what you're looking for a check the fluids time no something thing yeah look. I'm looking for so maximum Mike. Can you come with me to look at it. Yeah like what do I. What do I look for is like now. Don't worry about it now. Is it this crazy. I'm like this is this is not and he's like trust me. Just just go by. No I would say trust me. Trust that you pull the my on my heartstrings. He's like I'm telling you WANNA make money money on my. I'm like I don't know man. That's pretty crazy. He goes listen. He goes there a very abused piece of equipment. They break all the time and he goes. It's going to break but I got a good mechanic. I was like okay. I'll make this sounds promising so invest all this money. That things are going to bring enough is breaking you know again. I was getting these little so he would also tell me you know things to you know once. I got it was like I was getting his little lift. These little business lessons yet along with everything's told me and yes ended up just going and vying. I'd no idea what it was never touched. A grinder never use one. I had no idea what it looked like just went and I was like buying that and the guy who's even like. Did you ever used one. I was like nope guys like all right. This guy literally showed me how to use this thing in the parking. Lot cells like like this guy showed me how to use this thing and I was like all right so that's a hang on so I'm going to explain something for. There's a lot of people who are listening right now. I have no idea what's going on with the the machinery's all right so what happens. Is You have a tree that either died or you just want it removed from your property. Whatever business tree guys come out. They chop this bad boy down there. Actually they leave an actual stump the tree stump at the bottom which depending on how big the tree is this thing ago. I mean Paul you could probably tell us but it can go anywhere from inches to feet wide right and then you this machine that he bought that he john is telling him the by literally literally is grinding out this stump to the point where it goes and gets all its roots and everything and it Kinda like shreds it for lack of better. You know what chipper you put on top of it. Basically it's just it's it's turn was left in the ground and basically dirt mulch back up a lot of people. Don't do it initially usually when they get the truth because it's an expensive yeah so yeah leaves a loose some work for me and but anyway so then all right so just so just a clear earlier that I still don't know what's going on so that's what this machine that is bought. That's not cheap very expensive. Never used one guaranteed to break. Trust me it will when I got a good mechanic. That was the line so I picked this thing up and and you know I did a I did a facebook you know whatever advertisement post whatever and yeah and then he actually see sent me to my first stop and it was a text message saying here's an address. Go do the stump charges much. Don't tell him it's your first one Sir Roger. Try this machine on literally literally your personal. I'm like I'll figure it out. You know and I try to think of the pozo neck because again badly so days days later this guy still grinding that thing out now so how'd that go. How's your first experience. Actually it was like a it. It was pretty simple yeah and it's like he was saying he's like it's easy. Just a couple of joysticks you know told me you know things to be careful off. Make sure you know not too close to call and stuff like that but a smooth and I sent him a picture I said. Is this what I'm supposed to stumps gone and he's like Yup. Clean it up and get out. I said I'm out and then that was that was that when you do that first one that was that was last summer. Okay yeah so I'm still kind of new okay but yeah and then you know just watching videos asking people questions. You learn a lot from watching videos. I know it gets people like make fun of you know. If you mentioned in Youtube you can learn a lot from people and I found out the more I did. The morals looking around social media's actually like there's a lot of people that do just that follow them and see what they do and it's just you know get better. Just get better what you do yeah so so so was he now tipping you up because it's John's tree service right..

What's in your wallet? Credit approval required capital one bank U._S._A.. An a welcome to brain stuff but production of iheartradio brain Steph Lorraine Vogel bomb here and I'm here today to tell you that an oddball catfish species I spotted in one thousand nine hundred eight in Brazil at last has a name and it is Grio. Yes as in the Rhodesian Bounty Hunter Star Wars more formerly the catfish at fish who's bug-eyed stare and Droopy Chin like extension really do bring to mind Guido will henceforth be known as Peck Alenia greeted by that final is sound in Latin is a possessive so it means something like grotto's fish one Dr Jonathan armbruster professor professor and curator officials at Auburn University and Longtime Star Wars Fan created the name while studying the fish in two thousand fifteen. It's about one of forty species of fish. He's named date by tradition. Whoever discovers a new species gets to name it discovers covers doesn't necessarily mean fines though armbruster explained discoveries a weird term? I discovered Pedo I in a jar but others actually discovered it in nature. They just didn't have everything they needed to describe it. Armbruster did describe it he. He discovered the nature of the species. The new part of new species is weird to in this context armbruster explains a new species is one that is newly described named of course it existed before scientists got involved describing describing a new species is a science in itself in taxonomy which is the scientific discipline of classifying living things scientists examined physical genetic behavioral. 'em ecological traits to logically scituate species within the biosphere taxonomy is a big deal it reveals how a new species fits into are known world and provides a universal language to describe study it taxonomy lays out the components of biodiversity and thus the tools to preserve it it offers scientists engineers and inventors their best chance at understanding were standing the incredible capabilities that the natural world and explaining it to the rest of US naming is part of taxonomy. A name often reflects a distinctive characteristic like the name Tattoo Rita Brazilian ncis for bat discovered that lives in Brazil. Oh there's a lot of leeway in naming though and scientists often get creative like p Guido I for a fish that looks like Guido or my oldest might attack this for a bat with golden for after mythologies golden touched King Midas. This approach can sometimes be problematic though we spoke with Dr Ricardo More telly biologist with the Waldo crews foundation who named the Golden Bat he explained a characteristic that we I think is you need to that species. Maybe revealed as shared with others or even variable. Able within the species for instance the aforementioned t Brazilian says was later found to live throughout north and South America resulting in sub-species like T- Brazilian says Mexicana or the Mexican Brazilian F- Retail Bat other names <music> honor colleagues immortalized family members or less common but more compelling exact revenge scientists Carlin is who in these seventeen hundreds founded the taxonomy and nomenclature systems still used in biology today named an entire genus of Rican weeds <music> secust Becca after one Johan seek us back a botanist who had endlessly criticized his work. The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature needs to approve names but the organization is Pretty Open minded it approved sid vicious aside and Johnny Rotten. I four two species extinct trial bite named by taxonomic whose friend loved the sex pistols it also gave the nod to Agatha Idiom Bush. I A Cheney I and a Rumsfeld I four three species beetle title. The Republican taxonomic actually entered is a good thing it also approved ampule X. Demento for wasp that turns cockroaches zombies before eating them the behavior apparently recalled Harry Potter's spirit sucking adversaries that last one was chosen in a vote by visitors to Berlin Museum of Natural History. Some scientists are giving away. They're naming rights to educate engage and fund research and Conservation Merlin's museum patrons learned about the new wasp and taxonomy and it's critical role in conservation. Asian as part of the voting the scripts institution for oceanography cells naming rights for five thousand two twenty five thousand per species with the proceeds porting institutions work and that's a bargain at a two thousand five auction the online Golden Palace Casino L. paid sixty five thousand dollars the rights to name a species of monkey supporting the National Park in Bolivia where the new monkey was discovered. This commercialization makes some in the field uncomfortable with money in the mix. There's concern about biased. taxonomy armbruster said it has the possibility of getting out of hand. Buying a name is a good thing as long as it is four species we have already identified as new. We need more money for taxonomy. Finding creative ways to fund the science is a good thing by the way a Golden Palace named the Monkey Cassius our pilot.

Why nobody wants to call it stalking
"See you may have missed the details of this story unless you spend a lot of time online the young woman an instagram influence her named Bianca Devon's was murdered in Utica New York this this week. Please tell me that they believe that the suspect left this graffiti message on the ground saying may you never forget me photos. We're taking her and we're posted on social media or chat platforms. They were posted on there which sled people to become concern into contact. The Police Bianco was allegedly killed by Brandon Clark a man she had met online and that's also where her murder was posted in gruesome fashion and when the incident was first reported because of some of those details it was reported that she was stocked and stocking is an interesting and potentially accurate term for what allegedly happened but not according to police one of the other rumors were hearing is that there was a stocking incident a police spokesperson said she met with him willingly and that raises an interesting question if the victim met with her killer willingly does that mean it can't be stocking. How do we define that kind of crime? The story of Bianca's murder landed the same day as a threat on twitter which asked victims to share their experiences with their stockers. You'll probably not be shocked to hear that. Many of them had in fact met with their stockers willingly at some point most of them were sharing stories like that very vaguely and for the first time so what qualifies an incident the kind of incident that we clearly know can and does and in murder as stocking what options do victims have in. How are these crimes treated when they are reported if they are reported and what are the signs that all of us please most of all should be recognizing to help stalking victims before we all learn their story for the first time a really really ugly way? I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Julie loaned is an activist and educator around sexual violence and criminal harassment. She is also the creator of a project called outside of the shadows a project on criminal harassment in Canada so the first thing I want to ask you <hes> because of the incredibly disturbing story that made the rounds this week is when you see a a story like the one out of New York that I just described. What's the first thing that goes through your head a someone who lives this everyday well for me? The reason why this story was so upsetting setting was because it combined to other things that I have deep personal and professional connection to which is stalking criminal harassment and in cells and men's rights activists and kind of misogynous activists online and so to see both of those pieces come together. <hes> is really horrifying. What do you think happens in the media in sort of the hours and days after a story like this breaks because there's a ton of discussion around ended and immediately come sort of editorials and the discussion of cells and etc.? I'm really tired of people having hot takes about in cells or hot takes about even on long island stocking as though this is a new phenomenon and then it very quickly becomes sensationalized very quickly has yeah all of these sort of think pieces about it. We're talking about something as old as time. The assumption that women can't be trusted the assumption that women are telling you that they want something in but in fact they just want to be friends that women are using you that women are shifty. I mean these are like imbued. In most religious texts for example right like this is an old story and when it comes to stocking this is also something that women have experiencing for a very. Very Long Time and there's this real trend lately to act as though there's been some sort of uptaken it when in fact we know that technology apps different kinds of of things that are coming out are just new tools for an old form of violence and and most people who are being stalked even when most of it is online. They're still a kind of hurrell component to it. They're still someone following them physically showing up at their house showing up at their place of work and so I get really frustrated when people act look like Oh my God like people the Internet is like no. It's just another tool that we've given soccer's to us but the stuff has been going on forever. So why don't you lay out what is covered by stocking because this is one of the things things that that was the case in point in this recent story is that the the woman who was murdered had had a relationship with the alleged killer and maybe that means it wasn't stocking after all because the initial story said it was first of all. It's really really important for folks to know that the vast majority of victims of stalking are women. The vast majority of stockers are men even when the victim itself is a man men are more likely to be stopped by a man than by a woman and women are far more likely to be stopped by someone that they know and so so the idea that it can't be stocking if someone that you consented to meet with date sleep with Mary is absolutely false. Criminal harassment in Canada is an umbrella term that covers a whole array of behavior but the root of it is repeated an unwanted monitoring of some way shape or form of both the person the person's whereabouts so monitoring their home their place of work or monitoring folks around them so trying badgering their friends and family family to find out where that person is and the goal is really to that surveillance that monitoring that idea that you can't take a breath take a step without me knowing where you are and without you knowing that I'm watching you. How does that start in a typical typical case without asking you to point to one oftentimes especially when the two people know each other it starts with some semblance of conflict in that could be someone breaks up with you? Someone rejects you you know maybe they fired you from their place of work so there's really some semblance of a of a break in some way shape or form where the person says even politely. This isn't working out. You know I think we should go separate ways and then that person just doesn't let it go oftentimes it can also be in the in the context of I. I have a crush on this person. I really like this person and they're being nice to me and I'm taking it is an indication that they're interested in me and so I'm going to escalate the behavior oftentimes like intimate partner violence for example starts in a seemingly kind of small way where the person might think am. I reading too much into this. Maybe they just happened to be there. Maybe they're just really invested in my social media content and that's why they like all my posts in there the first person to comment on my photos and then oftentimes it's slowly escalates from there which is what contributes to the victim feeling. Maybe I'm just being dramatic and like this person's just being nice or maybe they're just awkward and I'm reading too much into it and oftentimes by the time they realize the full breadth of what's going on. It's actually been going on significantly AH longer than they thought well one of the other reasons we wanted to talk to you is because there was a huge threat on twitter this week that I think <hes> probably was not surprising at all to a lot of people and then extremely surprising to some can you tell me about it and maybe sort of read me the first post and a couple couple of examples so a twitter user named Michelle Guido asked women dear women. If you are comfortable please share your stalker stories below on this thread the idea that this is rare needs to stop re tweet to help spread awareness enough jeff enough and similar to the METOO Hashtag similar to been raped never reported hashtag women flooded the thread with their stories and what was so interesting to me but devastating was how. How tweet after tweet after tweet was a classic case of stocking both from an emotional standpoint but also from a criminal standpoint like these are things that meet the legal threshold in this country anyway and women had imbued self-doubt out into the tweet itself so this idea of I don't know if this is really considered stalking but I had this guy in high school or I don't know if this really counts and that is so heartbreaking to me but so unbelievably common that women have these experiences that until someone puts a label on it? You hadn't really thought of it in that light you just thought this kind of crap and thing that happened to you in high school or maybe this weird experience you had at this particular job and so oftentimes it's only in hearing other people's stories that they start to kind of put the pieces pieces together and realize why have every right to have released wrong feelings about the experience because it really was a criminal act. The you mentioned been raped never reported how often is stalking reported like the incidents described in in that thread stalking like all forms of gender-based violence in this country is incredibly under reported. It's oftentimes reported in the context of other crimes so this person vandalize my home which means they were watching my home home which means a criminal harassment charges added on even when you're looking at policing criminal harassment charges rarely stand on their own. They're oftentimes attached to an intimate partner violence charge show you know battery and stocking fucking vandalizing something stocking impersonation hockey into their computer like all of those kinds of things so it's oftentimes that's how women will sort of tell that story and again in Canada because it's referred to as criminal harassment and not stalking oftentimes women. I don't even know what criminal harassment is. I don't even know what the threshold is so they just sort of tell the story and if you're lucky you have a detective or a nine one one dispatcher who can read between the lines and figure out okay. This is actually what the root of what's happening here but it's really often seen as sort of adjacent to a more serious crime and that's something that I am personally trying to advocate to change is that criminal harassment in and of itself is a form of terrorists wrestler terrorizing another human being. It's psychologically damaging and I don't need to and I shouldn't have to physically assault you for that criminal harassment to be taken seriously. What is the threshold for people who don't know where might have a story that they questioned whether or not it reaches up while I wish I could tell you what the threshold is but it's very vague in the criminal code and so oftentimes it really is up to the nine one one dispatch or the detective? That's working on your case to see the tear in your is a case in in Montreal right now with Sue Montgomery who's the mayor of one of the outlying verbs in Montreal who by her definition has been stocked by man for over twenty years he started stalking her when she was a journalist and then when she became elected he had other opportunities to Harasser just this month the judge concluded that what he was doing absolutely was stocking absolutely was criminal harassment but because sued did not that show fear when she confronted him and there's video evidence of her confronting him at one of her events because she did not look afraid it did not meet the threshold of criminal harassment what yeah that's insane. It's absolutely insane and it enrages. You just need to my core. Because what are women supposed to do if I show that I'm upset visibly then I'm dismissed as an unreliable witness. I'm dismisses hysterical. I'm dismisses like Oh my God like get over yourself and then additionally in this culture that we're in right now so much of the response around me to women just kind of stand up for themselves. These men don't know what they're doing. They're not reading your signals. There's miscommunication unless you put your foot down. How is he gonNA know okay cool? Put My foot down and now you're saying well. I didn't look. Look scared and being scared is the threshold that is not okay like what are women supposed to do like who is the right person to be taken seriously when it comes to criminal harassment and so I what happened to sue is horrifying <unk> horrifying but it's incredibly common and so- criminal harassment is on one case you know repeated on wanted all of those kinds of things contact contact with your family surveillance but you also need to meet this criteria of showing fear and reasonably had a reason to be afraid of this person will who decides that and if it's a judge what are they using to decide that oftentimes some pretty archaic stereotypes of what steer looks like particularly early in women and so you have women were going through the process where putting themselves out there and are being shut down by the legal system because you just didn't look afraid enough like we should be outraged that you mentioned a few minutes ago that it <hes> It depends on whether or not you get a good detective who understands it. How much education is they're? They're left to be done in how how variable I guess is the police response when this is reported the police response to gender-based violence writ large is horrifying. It's terrible I mean I it's just like it makes me inarticulate like it just makes me so angry about the response in general but when it comes to criminal harassment in my case like personally I've contacted police on three separate occasions for Chris Three separate people who were harassing me in a way that met the criminal code in all three cases the police absolutely believed it was happening but they didn't really do anything about it and so you know okay on the surface great you can see you know here. Are the messages here.

"Venezuela's opposition leader Guido made a surprise appearance there and on the other side of that border in Venezuela. Maduro supporters held a rival concert. Correspondent John Otis was at the event on the Colombian side earlier today, and he joins us now. Hi, john. Good. So this was a surprise appearance by one Guido, tell us about his arrival. Yeah. He kind of arrived in the middle of a of a set by Colombian Starbucks. But right now one guy though is kind of the major attraction because you know, he's the the the self-proclaimed interim leader of Venezuela. And he's the guy who's really trying to force President Nicolas Maduro from power in Venezuela. And so, you know, he's really big deal that he showed up here. There's actually an arrest warrant against him that the Missouri government is put against why though. So he gripped by crossing the border and coming to this concert. Okay. So you have two people claiming the presidency Venezuela to concerts on either side of the border. Tell us about the concert you attended in Columbia and who attended. Yes. It's quite big. They're saying that more than three hundred thousand people showed up for the concert. It's got a lot of the major Latin American bands and music starts that was organized by British billionaire, Richard Branson with the idea of raising one hundred million dollars for food medicine prevents Walea and a lot of the Venezuelan. There's a lot of Williams among the crowd. And and many of them are just very very grateful that the world is starting to really pay attention to the crisis in Venezuela. I know this concert was held to raise money for aid to Venezuela. There already is a lot of aid sitting there at the border provided by the US and Medeiros government won't let it in. So what's the plan to get it across the border? Well, the opposition is recruiting a big army of volunteers as well. As many of the the concert goers today and tomorrow starting tomorrow morning. Their ideas to try to move this aids across the border into Venezuela. It's unclear whether they're going to try to do that in vehicles or just carrying bags of food and medicine, but the problem is the president Maduro on the Venezuelan fat has about to block the border of Venezuelan soldiers are under orders to do that of the opposition. What they're trying to do is trying to provoke the Venezuelan military into backing down and define leading the aid. And that would be a big embarrassment for doodo, and they're hoping that may be kind of one of the first step sports regime change in Minnesota, John. There are lots of conflicts around the world where humanitarian aid is allowed in despite political disagreements wise, Medeiros governments so insistent that the aid not crossed the border. Well, claims that there is no humanitarian crisis inside his country despite all the evidence to the contrary. I mean, there's you know, there's all kinds of food and medicine shortages there at three point four million Venezuelans that's about ten percent of the whole population leads the country within the past several years. So, you know, there really is the crisis there Madonna says that allowing in humanitarian aid is just sort of a pretext for an invasion by foreign powers such as the US. In other words, opened the door to aid trucks. And the next thing. You know, you can have a tanks rolling into Caracas. And that's something. The international community denies is going to happen. Just really briefly John. I know that some people trying to bring aid into the country were shot earlier today in a different section of the border. Is there a fear that that could happen where you are? Yes. That's exactly correct. There's a lot of concern about what's going to happen unclear. Whether you know, what's going to happen with the Venezuelan.

"We'll see if this continues, but to answer that question Brian, basically, the way we suggest people do peps is they come with an idea to python ideas, the mailing list, and they propose it in usually pretty quickly. People are either go that's been proposed before. No, that's not doesn't seem very python. Or there's that seems like a possibly good idea. And we did on occasion come in and say, yes, there's a possibility for this or shuts which an idea down quickly. So people didn't waste their time. And then usually they have a discussion, workout, some rough details. And then usually the proposal goes away and comes back with rough pep saying, here's a more formal proposal and then more discussion about he is to help that author refined it. And then what they would do is they would then bring that by two python Dev in with more or less, a fine lies pep, and then any final salient details would be worked out and then either Guido would name what we call the Bedia fell delegate. Who would be someone he delegated the final decision to in terms of technical details and also whether the pep would be accepted or he would keep the media fell vote himself in. He would eventually make the call. One change that has been floated though is to take a pip. From on ideas to python Dev. You might start needing more of a co-sponsor from a core developer to help make sure that the idea seems sullen after to bring forward and also to make sure the pep is in a good position because whether problems with five, seven, two was while the idea had was there. The tap wasn't fully fully fleshed out to the level that we typically have peps out from ideas on death as and so there was a lot of repetitious discussion of things that should have been recorded initially in the pep to have tamped down on the repeated discussion. 'cause the discussion about that is actually was a bit more reasonable than it wasn't by unless reactionary. Funny enough. So that's generally the process is identify ideas than a rough pep and then refine it. And then once his failure refined goes the python Dev file discussion, and then are there Guido or ambient fell delegate made a decision and the peppy there got accepted or rejected. And that's basically the way it was. This portion of talked by me has been brought to you by roll bar. One of the.
