Rep. Brian Mast: Wearing His Israeli Military Uniform to Capitol Hill
"Reason that it is mine is something similar, not to the same extent of what's going on right now, but unfortunately, that has occurred in history over and over. Israel being attacked. Most of the time, the media doesn't report the single or half dozen rocket attacks that lob into Israel regularly, but back in 2014, I was a student at the liberal then of indoctrination of Harvard Operation and Protective Edge was going on and Israel was being attacked yet again. They had taken military hostages and same thing was going on up there that's going on right now. Just people that for the life of me, I couldn't understand why they were draping themselves in Palestinian flags and rallying against Israel and one night actually started rallying against my wife and my family for being a US service member and it's not hard for people to figure out that I was a US service member. I don't have any legs and I wear a hat that says Army Rangers so it doesn't take a genius to it figure out and after that incident in Boston, in the Boston Commons with Nazi these Arab sympathizers is what I I would call told them, my wife, I said look I don't know what it's going to look like but I'm going to get my hands dirty. I'm going to find a way to go my support against this hypocrisy that is chastising Israel, show my support for Israel and when I show support for something I try to do it in a physical, tangible way and you know I called the consulates and the embassies and everything else and ultimately went and put on the uniform of the IDF and served in Israel. So you were an IDF soldier for a period of time? I was a volunteer. I was a volunteer with the IDF, held no rank you know but served there working on a

The Coming Wave: Mustafa Suleyman Discusses His New A.I. Book
"Joined now by Mustafa Suleiman. He is one of the people who John Ellis says is the half dozen or so who actually understand artificial intelligence and what we're facing. He's also the author of this brand new book, The Coming Wave. The Coming Wave is, I have to say, sort of epic. Good morning or afternoon, Mustafa. I'm not sure where you are. Where are you today? Good afternoon, Hugh. Great to be with you. I am in New York today, so it's a lovely sunny afternoon. We are in the same time zone. Then I will let people know. We are taping this on Wednesday, September 6th at 5 in the afternoon. I'll play it on my radio show tomorrow and make the transcript available. Thank you for joining me. I did not plan, it wasn't planned, that you would come on to talk about The Coming Wave at the same time that Time Magazine has Elon Musk on the cover talking with Walter Isaacson about artificial intelligence. Did you have that planned that way for the rollout of the book? That was not planned, but you know, the timing is going to work out just fine, I think. It's pretty funny to see that come out. Very interesting. The synergy is very good. Now, when John Ellis, and I don't know if you know John, but he's a newsman's newsman. When he says a half dozen to eight people understand AI and lists you in that, is that hyperbole or is that an accurate statement? Well, I mean, I think there are lots of people who understand AI very deeply. I mean, the field is huge now, and you know, there are many, many people who've been working on it for some time, actually. I'm among the group who has been working on AI, you know, in the earlier stages in this new wave. So, you know, I started DeepMind along with two friends in 2010. And, you know, I guess it's almost been sort of 13 years or so at this point working in the field. But there are many luminaries above and beyond me, you know, many professors who have been in the field for 30 years or so toiling away. So I'm really part of the new generation.
A highlight from Self-Defense Laws and Online Radicalization
"I believe they want to save the environment. The fact of the matter is none of the results of everything they do doesn't help the environment. Like you said, that guy just donated all these money to environmental causes. That money is going to go so these people can strap themselves to something on a highway instead of planting trees. All righty, welcome back. Mike Lomas, Go Legal Financial guys. I should have asked you. I guess I'm hosting. I just opened my mouth. Not that there's like a host here because we don't take commercial breaks, but we are the financial guys. It's a place where money meets politics and thanks for tuning in to a... I love these podcasts, by the way, between morning mics, podcasts, and radio shows. We're doing what we love to do, which is really cool. And I love the 45 minutes and out, 40 minutes and out, no commercial breaks. It's pretty good. It's nice. So I don't know where to start. Western New York here. Glenn, you're down in our Florida office now, but we'll be back here shortly. I'm in our Western New York office. I'll be down to Florida shortly, so back and forth. But Florida is all about hurricane, hurricane, hurricane. I love these environmentalists. So they're like, oh, by the way, every hurricane is a once in a lifetime storm. It's like, okay, I think they go the last... This has never happened before. Well, coming into like the Gainesville area, well, actually it was 170 years ago. Now, hmm, what did we not have 170 years ago? Oh yeah, the freaking automobile, right? Like they want to blame all this on climate change, but it happened 170 years ago. Because it's hitting that part. It's now global warming. And it's so stupid, right? I remember when we were talking to Congressman Chris Collins on the air one time and we were talking about, he was talking about Marco Island, houses on Marco Island. Just bought there. He just bought a house there and he bought there because there was no way that anything, though, the hurricane had never, ever, ever... Because of the way that... Let me back you up for one second. No, no, no, no, no. Let me back you up for one second. As we were doing that, because you and I, we have offices down in Palm Beach, the storm was heading right for Palm Beach. And he said to us, he said, that's exactly why I bought a Marco Island. When I kid you not, we got off the air two hours later. The storm had gone south around the tip of Florida and back up in Marco Island. It literally did. It jogged left and it curled around and it came right back and whacked Marco Island and went right across Naples and right across Lake Okeechobee. I know God's got much bigger things to do than listen to the financial guys at a Saturday afternoon. However, however, it was sort of weird that at 301, as soon as we got off, that storm turned. Really, you guys, karma right there. But the point is that storms, they do whatever. They hit different parts. It's not because of global warming. It's just stupid. Honest to God, what a dumb statement to make. We've been warm, cold, ice ages. We've had hurricanes that have hit the panhandle, Louisiana, Texas, because it just hasn't hit that particular exact spot of the coastline. Are you out of your mind? It has. 170 years ago. That's what's funny about it. 170 years ago it did. So really it did. But not within the last, you know, not since 1974 when they started to keep statistics on it. It's just stupid. These people are lunatics. By the way, we were talking for the show, you know, Patagonia, the guy who created the clothing brand Dives, right, left almost all of his fortune to environmental groups. That and along with Hollywood are the people that are funding these whack jobs that are putting other people at risk. Let me ask you this, though. Everyone's seen this video by now, right? The tribal police, they literally, they take the truck. I love it. They just run over the thing. They clear the road. They arrest everybody. We're not in violence. We're not in violence. Here's the thing, though. Let me ask you this. These are, are these, are these all beta males in that line? Because I got to be honest, if I'm anywhere near visibility of the front, I'm probably going to walk up there after a while, I'm going to probably pull off the road and maybe take a walk or drive down the shoulder. If I can see what's going on and I realize there's a protest, I'm rallying like, you know, half dozen, dozen other rednecks in that line. How long would it take to walk down the cars and grab, you know, nine, 10 other, you know, guys and just say, okay, we're moving. And when they say they're nonviolent, well, you're, you're holding up a, you're holding up miles and miles of people in the desert, right? I mean, look at, I drove, I drove through the desert a few weeks ago. It was a hundred degrees. If that 110 actually during the day, if I'm stuck on that road and there's nothing else, by the way, I can't like turn my car off and just sit there without air. I've got two kids in the car, right? There's people that have animals, pets in the car, right? So you turn that car off, you don't get air conditioning, you die. If you run the car, you eventually run out of fuel. I mean, they are a real threat. They are a real danger and they may not be violent, but it doesn't mean they're not putting people at risk. I tell you how many people could die at 110 degrees. I tell you what, you can be as nonviolent as you want while I'm kicking your head in to get you off the road. I gotta be honest. In the middle of the desert, you blocked the road in the middle of the desert. I'm finding as many of the rednecks as possible and you're getting an ass whooping. I gotta be honest. You're getting out of the road. They needed that. I'll give you 10 seconds to get out of the road or you're getting an ass kicking. Fortunately, it was on tribal land as we were talking before because had it not been, you'll get some liberal piece of shit prosecutor that will now charge the police officer instead of saying thank you for saving the lives of all these people that could have burned to death in their cars. That's the game now, right? That's why George Soros funded all these, right? You remember those folks in St. Louis, the attorneys who protected their home with an AR -15 and a pistol. Now, I don't agree with the woman waving it around like a pointer. That was clearly... But she didn't have the proper skills to let it go. That was her property. You can wave the damn thing any way she wants. Get off her goddamn land. She had the right to defend it. Get off her land. Get off her land. And they prosecuted her. They went after her, right? So all these people in these states, if you're a non -friendly state like New York, you have to really think twice about defending yourself. Think about this. I know. Somebody breaks into your home at two o 'clock in the morning. Think about this for a second. You're by yourself in your home. You don't have your kids. You don't have your wife. You have nothing to worry about to protect. You have an opportunity to go out the back door and get out of your home. Now, however, in New York State, you have every right to defend your home. Is it worth it? I mean, think about that for a second. I'm going to stop and think about that when I'm in New York now. Do I just leave the... I'm going to leave the house and let my guest just break into my home because otherwise I'm going to get prosecuted. Or at least I'm going to get investigated. What if you can't leave? What if you can't leave? What if they have you at gunpoint? Well, then I'm defending myself. Well, then I'm defending myself for sure. I mean, but that's ridiculous. It's to the point where it's just so asinine. I mean, the old saying, rather judged by 12 than carried by six, right? But still, you shouldn't have to think like that. In Florida, you don't have to think like that. In Florida, you can be in your car and have somebody threatening you in your car and defend yourself in your car. I .E. Florida's at a 50 -year low when it comes to crime, 90 -year low in Miami. Because the criminals know it. The criminals know it, right? They know. By the way, it doesn't make it. It's perfect. But I'll tell you what, it's a hell of a lot better. You know, look at... We own a financial company. When your crimes are up 50 % in one state and down 50 % in another state, those are pretty telling... That's a pretty telling tale, right? Like, you know what? Like when we pick stocks, we look at numbers and like, gosh, boy, those numbers are really good. Well, I think let's do more of that, right? Let's maybe buy some of that company, right? I mean, just sad where we are in the states like New York and California. How do you not look at the crime? By the way, I said to the group the other day, it was Chicago. There was a bunch of reporters who actually got mugged as they were doing their online report. The report. It's crazy. And like you said... I did a charity golf tournament with a client on Monday. He was part of our team. A police officer. And he said, he goes, Mikey, he goes, it's absolutely disgusting to see these same people that we arrest time and time and time again. One of the illegal aliens who was out on a bail to rob some cars. Illegal. In the country, illegal. He's out on cashless bail. A joke. A joke. But yeah, here we are now in the national media for the rest of the week and the weekend we'll focus on this tragic shooting in Jacksonville, right? This is one tragic shooting amongst many, many, many tragic shootings. The manifesto will be released right away, I'm sure, right? He's already is a white supremacist, 21 year old young kid, and you'll say, well, we should not have the guns. Okay. So he, instead of walking with an AR, he could have walked in with a pistol, done the exact same thing. But here's the thing that at some point, are we, I mean, are we actually going to have an honest conversation about what is radicalizing these kids? You know, whether it's on the right or the left, on either side. The mental illness problems, which we continue to say something, but we refuse to look at any of that, right? You've got a huge homeless problem in this country. Part of it is caused by the welfare. Part of it is caused by the massive amounts of mental illness that's out there. And instead of getting these people in the right spots, getting them medicated, you know, getting them in the right direction, we just let them back out on the streets because boy, they can't have that on their record. If they have mental illness on the record, they'll never recover. Well, guess what? If they have mental illness, they'll never recover. Right. Well, this kid, like this kid was the Asian one that's mostly white. Did you see that? That was a different one. Yeah. Yeah. The mostly white Asian. That was another, another classic headline from CNN. Right. The mostly white Asian. No, this one was the Jacksonville kid, a 21 year old and tragic. Yeah, sure. So anyway, so the, but the thing, they're all, everyone's out there immediately. It's like, we've got to do something about the systemic racism in the country.
A highlight from THE HASH: Court Rules SEC Must Review Rejection of Grayscale's Bitcoin ETF Bid, Bitcoin Jumps 5%
"This is the hash podcast. Stay informed with the latest on Bitcoin, ETH, the metaverse, web3, and more. All on the hash for your ears. You're listening to the CoinDesk podcast network. We got some big news today. It's also Taco Tuesday, and since it's going to be our last Taco Tuesday, you better get ready for some actual tacos. That's a major news, but there is also real major news, and I'm starting us off today. Here we go. Let's go over to Grayscale. An appeals court ruled just today that the SEC must review Grayscale's ETF bid after they were previously rejected. It's being seen as a victory in the prospects for getting a spot Bitcoin ETF into the marketplace in the US, and the market is responding enthusiastically. Bitcoin surged on the news, adding quite a bit of value, and now we're seeing some further chatter about what this means for the prospects, again, of the long -awaited Bitcoin spot ETF. This note, Grayscale is a sister company of CoinDesk. They share ownership from Digital Currency Group, but we're going to talk about it. Gloves off, no holds barred anyway. I'm so excited, you guys. This is the absolute best news ever. The fact that we continue to see the SEC take these massive L's is music to my ears. I really, really feel that they have just been so predatory in their actions and wanting to litigate instead of give some sort of guidelines, help these honest entrepreneurs know what they're supposed to be doing and know what they can't do. To me, that's just super problematic behavior. We should want to support entrepreneurs. We should want to guide people in the right direction, and more importantly, we should want to build back the American economy better. I think with all of these massive wins the crypto industry is seeing, things hopefully will get better. All right, Will, you can take it now. This does not mean the ETF is going through now. It just means that the SEC has to go back and review the application again, and they have to give an actual opinion. There's a few lawyers on crypto Twitter talking about this this morning, what does this actually mean? What did the judge actually say? They basically stated that the SEC did not have a good basis for making its past decision, and now they need to go back to the books, relook at the application, and come up with a better decision, whether that means that this is going to be approved or not, we still have to wait. This probably means it's going to be approved because there's a lot of political pressure now on the SEC after a judge took a look at this and said, you know what, guys? You didn't do your homework. You should have let this pass, or you should have put some more thought into why you didn't want this to go through, and you didn't, so we're kicking it back. Go study the books, and maybe we'll get something out of this. Now, of course, what's on the line? A lot of ETFs are out there. A lot of people are lining these things up. I'd say there's about a half dozen plus ETFs that are possible to move forward over the next 180 days or so, and if that opens up, that means a lot of mom and pop retail investors can get into the Bitcoin market for the first time because they probably weren't comfortable touching Bitcoin in other ways. There's lots of different ways to get exposure to Bitcoin. There's lots of different ways of purchasing financial assets, but an ETF itself means that you can put Bitcoin into your 401k, into any sort of trust with a Schwab or Fidelity, something like that. That means that maybe coin go up. Who knows? A little speculation there. It could have some more apathy because the crypto markets right now are not great, but a lot of people in the crypto industry are looking at this and saying like, this could be our salvation from the depths of crypto winter. Jen? So I look at this court ruling in favor of Grayscale and the partial ruling in favor of Ripple, and I think that there's a glimmer of hope, right? I think that these two cases show us that maybe this clarity we're seeking from the SEC, we are not going to get, but some of these decisions are going to be made in the court, and some of them may lead to precedent setting decisions down the line, or they may at least force the SEC's hand so that we can get some more clarity. So good news all around. I want to point to one of the lawyers who have been commenting on this, who has been commenting on this on Twitter this morning, Jake Trevinsky, who's the chief policy officer at the Blockchain Association. He said that it's rare for a federal circuit court to make a decision like this and said that there are two ways that this could possibly go. The SEC could come back and just provide another reason for rejecting it, or they could say their hand was forced by the court, and so they're going to do it, but it's not because they wanted to do it, but they were forced by a judge. And so it will be interesting to see which way they go. I think it's important to note that an ETF has not been approved, but I think it is definitely a step in the right direction. Zach? Yeah, there's a lot of speculation that once one gets approved, several will be approved, right? So we have the BlackRock one, we have a bunch of other ones, I forget all the names, but there's a ton of Bitcoin spot ETF proposals that are sitting for rejection or approval. And I think the ETF watchers out there in the world have said that maybe when one gets over the finish line, others will likely also get over the finish line, such that SEC isn't seen as picking a winner and giving an unfair advantage to one applicant over the others. So I think that's why there is sort of this buoyant sentiment across the space as a whole. This isn't necessarily just a win for Grayscale, it's potentially a win for others such as BlackRock and others in the space who are looking to offer this product to, again, mom and pop investors who want it in their brokerage account and don't want to have to deal with the nonsense of dealing with the crypto itself. So that, I think, is why that sentiment is out there, why the market has reacted pretty positively. Bitcoin's up about 5 % on the news, a nice little surge given that Bitcoin has been pretty flat around 26K for the last little while now. So interesting to see what's going to follow this, but yeah, definitely the SEC may have taken an L on this one while they fight other fights and may rack up dubs on those ones. And I think we'll talk about that in a little bit. Who wants next? Oh, we're talking about that right now, Zach. NFTs. Sure, let's do it. Yeah, they've entered the chat. So the SEC has issued its first enforcement action targeting NFTs. The regulator ordered Impact Theory, an LA -based media company that raked in nearly $30 million from selling tiered NFTs to compensate investors, arguing that the transactions were illegal, unregistered securities, offerings, Impact Theory has agreed to set up a fund to reimburse investors, destroy remaining NFTs, and they will pay a fine of $6 .1 million. Wendy, going to toss this one off to you. What do you make of the SEC's first NFT enforcement action? We all knew that this was coming. The reason why we knew it's coming is when we're talking about NFTs, people like to call them digital assets or digital collectibles, but that's just really skirting around what an NFT actually is. It is a token. It is a little adorable little token that kind of just lives on that blockchain that's just kind of there, just kind of chilling. But it really depends the way that these entities are set up and how they're using the NFTs, because let's face it, when we do talk about collectibles, again, I was an eBay seller, I would go to thrift stores, I would buy used designer vintage goods or things that I saw that were in style that I knew I was going to be able to flip. Because I knew I was going to be able to flip and make money off of them, it kind of makes you think, is this a security? Is this not a security? But in fact, it's just a tangible good. But that's the kind of the way that I view NFTs. I literally view them as collectibles that you can buy and then you hope that they appreciate, but you're not 100 % sure if they're going to appreciate. For this particular lawsuit, I forget exactly how the company went about it. I'm planning on doing a video on my channel about it, YouTube, CryptoIndio, go subscribe. But I do think it's very interesting. I think we're going to see a lot of other NFT projects get hit. And it's very important if you do plan on launching a project, you probably should obtain some sort of legal advice, just so you have some sort of guidance and just have some basic understanding of the law. Because again, you guys were in very, very uncharted territories. Will, what is your thought about these adorable little single tokens that kind of just live on the blockchain? Are they securities? What's going on? What about the tchotchkes, as Zach would say? I like the tchotchkes, depending on if they're penguins or not. No. Okay. So I think this case specifically more refers to how this NFT rollout occurred. I did see some people, including Zach BTC, who's sort of like the on -chain sleuth of the last cycle, talking about how this NFT drop had some dubious parts about it. And that's why they saw this case going forward, right? This is the first one we've seen with an NFT. So there's that. On the other hand, looking at the dissent from Hester Peirce and others at the SEC who were judging on this decision, they thought it was a little odd to come after a single NFT case. Why? For the reasons Wendy just sort of laid out there, right? We have art markets. We have designer bag markets. People sell these things on street corners, so we're not going after them. But the SEC in this case decided to go after it. I think it does fit a longstanding pattern for the SEC that enforcement actions target select groups and select people where they can have easy case wins. And then that sets sort of like a precedent for the rest of the industry, right? They go after the Ripple Labs, they go after this NFT case, they go after a library. They go after the ones where they think they can sort of win. In the case of Ripple Labs, they have a lot of money, so I don't know how it was the best target because that one's been hauled up in court for the better part of three years. The library one was sort of a slam dunk though, right? They like won that and the library didn't have enough money to go back and fight against them. So they've basically been on a social media campaign. And I think with this SEC one here, you know, it's NFT market, they just had to like put up with it. They had to pay disgorgements and let it go. And that's the case. Now for all these NFT creators out there, they have to think about these things a little harder than they were previously. If that's good or bad, I don't know. I don't love the strategy. The SEC has been walking out for the last few years. I think we've all opined on that a lot in this show. But there is something to saying maybe we should have like a little bit more consumer protection with some of these new markets are popping up. Permissionless innovation is great, but that also means that you have permissionless rugging.
A highlight from Conor Picks A New Favorite Team
"I don't know if I like that. I I like as a coach like an outlier in appearance like a Like someone who's either very old Not in great shape Like looks battle -hardened. There's something to that for me because Well Vic Fangio is Mike McDaniel's defensive coordinator Now Vic Fangio is still the head coach of the Broncos we'd have and Vic and I are from Scranton That would have been a very well Vic is from Dunmore I'm from Scranton. Let me because he'll correct you when you say that but That would have been an obvious one, but you get rid of Vic Fangio you get rid of me as a franchise So but Vikings are good But again, it's like I like So what I like about them So the wholesome part like Kirk Cousins has got that covered but on top of that, right like I do think like the way they treated their plate like one thing that was very noticeable to me was the way they handled all their outgoing players this year and If you go back and you look like Dalvin cook Patrick Peterson Eric Kendricks All these got Adam feel and all these got Dalvin cook all these guys they offloaded None of them have anything bad to say about the Vikings because of the way they handle those guys on the way out And then what you have remaining? Is maybe the most exciting young player in the game and Justin Jefferson, right? Proximity, New Jersey, that's an easy flight. It's a Delta hub So you have like you can get there really really easily and probably like an hour and a half two hours I feel like the young core there is good. They're very Forward thinking with quasi Adolfo Mensa is their GM who's kind of like a good merger between analytics and scouting. I Think there's a lot there I mean I just think that and I don't think that they're at the level of like the Bears or the Giants where it's like Alright, like that's a hit. That's a team that like has Like it's hard to just join that established fan base You know what? I mean? Like I feel like they're like maybe a notch below that and they're Minnesota nice. They would let me in My problem is I feel like as my kids get older. I need the head coach to be Older than me because like I think Kevin O 'Connell and I are pretty close to the same age We're in the same NFL locker room together when I was a young beat reporter and he was I covered him to Quarterback. Yeah, it's so I think like I would imagine like maybe one day my kids being like Oh the head coach of the Vikings is 40. Why aren't you doing anything? Cool dad? You're you're 40 so that's just something that's kind of the back of my radar, but I do I I Do support moving the Vikings up? to to a hot team Potentially and I do like I like that They're a little earlier in the cycle because it would be a little strange to I think the Jaguars are a very appealing pick It would be strange to become a Jaguars fan and then for the rest of your life people say Oh, how'd you become a Jaguars fan? And you say well, it was Trevor Lawrence's third season They had already proven they could win a playoff game and I said now's a good time for me to hop on the Jacksonville bandwagon Jacksonville just feels like I don't know. It's like too obvious too obvious That's how I feel about Detroit too, which is in this category. We haven't even talked about. Yeah. Yeah No, I'm with you Detroit's too obvious and part of this is gonna be You know, I want a fan base that handles success. Well, I think on this list a lot of teams that got punished Are teams whose fans when they achieve sudden success? Just collectively become like the largest group of douchebags on the planet and is that how you feel about Eagles fans? People would describe Patriots What I like about Eagles fans, I will say this you're getting dangerously close to early Bill Simmons era Boston and A Boston Red Sox Boston Celtics where you're making it a lot about you and I think you are over rating The struggle that's what I would say and it's there's a very theatrical Element to all that we had to go through in the empty stadiums at the link and oh The fellowship what we called it up here was right before they like the championships started here They called it the fellowship of the miserable up here But it's theater, right? It's acting some of it is Yeah, I mean like the whole like going to your you know Great -grandfather's grave site the day after the Red Sox won the World Series. There was definitely some of that Okay, I can see that to one up that I will say the morning of the Super Bowl this past year I saw videos from Philly where people were at their grandparents grave sites tailgating And they had run like they were tailgating with their dead relatives I remember walking into the stadium in Arizona being sent these videos Wait a minute Can you imagine like driving by a cemetery and seeing like an RV parked in the middle of it and just like a half dozen people hanging out But that's also part of why I'm weary about Philly like there's always there's already this established fan Subculture and then to be able to fit in I would have to be so extra beyond what I am now And so I think that there's a little bit of pressure there to be there's a high barrier to entry to be a fanatical Eagles fan I think yeah, I also think Philly is a very strong 4 -4 kind of city and I know there are others on the list I'm not saying that's exclusive to Philly But I think it it is Particular there where it's like the diehard Eagles fans are tend to be also diehard Sixers Phillies fans It's not an easy city to sort of pick and choose one team a la carte and have other interests It feels like everyone's very much dialed into all of the teams I know there are other four for four cities people probably listening to the saying or cities like that, too But it feels it feels like some very passionate fans as I know and I think it would be a tough place to just sort Of hop in as just an Eagles fan it would it would anybody else have a candidate to bump up from maybe teams So we're moving the Vikings up right moving the Vikings up Okay, I'm gonna have to you know, the Kevin O 'Connell thing is a me issue.
"half dozen" Discussed on WTOP
"Ad -free versions. It's joining us live now to talk about it and why and where prices are going. Wall Street Journal reporter Robbie Whalen. Robbie, thanks so much for your time today. You're reporting that we can expect to pay even more to stream content over the next year or so. So how much on average are we talking about rates going up? And again, why is it happening? thanks Yeah, for having me on. The short answer is that most big media companies are under pressure to start making some money, start making some profits on their streaming services. That means companies like Disney, Warner Discovery, Paramount, NBC Universal, none of these guys are really making much money, if any, on streaming. It's been a very high capital intensive business, high cost business, and no one's quite figured out the correct formula to how to generate profits. Disney, for example, which is the company I watched most closely, has lost more than $10 billion in about three years on their streaming business. Wall Street, their investors have lost patience. They really want to see profits. There's a number of levers that these guys can pull to get these businesses to financial a better health, and the easiest one is raising prices for streaming. So what we've seen is that across the board, according to our analysis, the average standalone streaming service, we're talking about Amazon Plus or Hulu or Netflix, has gone up by about 25%, and that's really remarkable given how cheap these services were when they launched in previous years relative to your typical cable package. There are a half dozen or more major streaming services. Are any of them in danger of either going out of business or merging with somebody else? Is something like that going to get sent? For a while now, people have been talking about the organization, which seems to be a likely option. We can't keep on going with 20 or 25 streaming viable services unless those streaming services are really small and targeted towards a very particular audience. I'm talking about a criterion collection type product or MC. But there's been a lot of talk in recent years about how sooner or later one of the bigger ones is going to gobble up one of the smaller ones. People talk about Paramount Plus being a candidate for consolidation or Peacock maybe combining with another service. But so far, we just haven't seen that in part because the economics of such a deal don't yet make sense. We might not be at the right stage of maturity in the streaming business for that to happen soon. All right, thanks so much for your time this afternoon. You're welcome.

"The oldest quiz show on television and it's a high school quiz show. That type of longevity was interesting to me. And we just discovered in the process that many communities have lost their shows, a half dozen major cities have lost them because of budget cuts at schools or TV stations. What we have here in D.C. is unique and worth celebrating. So Chuck Schumer Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer was on the its academic team in New York City back in the 60s and apparently Scott he loved telling you about it. Oh, did he? Did he ever? He said, I'm only going to give you an hour for this interview, Scott. And I said, well, that's the longest interview I've ever had. He remembers the questions he was asked in his championship match in the 1960s. That's how formative this experience is for young people. The adrenaline, the intensity doesn't always come across on TV. It is life-changing for alums like him and me and I suspect Sean. Absolutely. I remember that my appearance on there in the western Pennsylvania way back when it was junior high quiz, but still one of the great memories for me. It was tough for these programs to survive the pandemic. You mentioned that the number of them were lost. What about reviving them? How important is it to revive them and keep it going? It's incredibly important. The students do say this is life-changing. A lot of this requires philanthropy now. Much like has happened with its academic, a donor came in and helped sustain it financially because they're expensive and hard to sustain. But if you're on one of these shows, as Hillary can attest in that studio each week, it has all of the intensity and adrenaline of a game winning free throw. Every time that buzzer goes off and it can make a kid's life better, it can make their future more realistic and reachable. It really can change the trajectory of a young person. Well, Scott, how did it change yours? Well, I discovered I wasn't the smartest kid in school, but I apparently was the least scared of those cameras in those lights because I was killing it on my show in high school. And I thought, maybe I should just do this for a living. Pretty cool, CBS News congressional correspondent Scott mcfarlane. You can watch his report on school quiz shows in parts of the country.

Why China and Ukraine Should Be Our Top Priority
"John, there are a bunch of people driving to work this morning. Listening to you. And I keep trying to tell him it's 1937, maybe 1938. And most of them understand I'm referring to a period of time in which Winston Churchill was alone or surrounded by a half dozen people in parliament, nettle Chamberlain went and listened to him about the rising threat of Hitler. And in the entire volume of a loan and I'm about four fifths done listening to it. I've read it a couple of times. They don't talk about Japan at all. It's like Japan is a footnote on page 400. And that they were the same problem. They were part of the axis. They thought a lot about Italy, but they make fun of Italy, sort of like Iran. We can make fun of Iran because they are the weakest sister of that trio. Is there any reason for you and bridge to be intention for the Ukraine yes in the Taiwan? Yes, people to be intentional. I don't think there is. If we resolve to spend the money. No, I said at the beginning of our debate, my goal in the debate was not to defeat bridge Colby. He's a smart and able guy. I wanted to persuade him. I think that's a larger problem in the United States today than we kind of shout epithets at each other. I want to persuade him that this is the way to think about it. I'm going to continue to try to do that. I have smart people who are experts in some of these areas that I have to try to help to support that are also trying to work with our Defense Department with Congress with the executive branch and publicly to help people understand our hands aren't tied here. It's very strong. I actually don't think it's like the 1930s. I actually think it's a bit more of a blend of some of those dangers and and the end of the Carter administration in the beginning of the Reagan administration. When the Soviets were on the march, where totalitarian was expanding where we needed to beef up our military and it was not easy as you know, you were there. And we used technology. We used technology to leap over the threats of our enemies. Again, the Chinese military is based on the backbone of Soviet era weapons. They have upgraded some of them. They've modified some of them. Those weapons are losing big time in Ukraine. If
Understanding the Severity of the Turkey Earthquake
"This may be according to the Wall Street Journal this morning. Actually, it's The Washington Post. The worst natural disaster in consequences of our lifetime. Because of how it occurred occurred 11 miles below the surface, everything is made of brick, it's got no rebar in it. It all fell down. There are people trapped tens of thousands of people trapped. No way to get serious just to write off. I mean, you can get food maybe over to the turkey border, but you're not going to get the good guys to take the food into Syria, absent armed convoys in turkey. Story in The Wall Street Journal, as the sun went down Tuesday over gurney street, and this is from beland tech turkey, dozens of people, their hands and arms, limbed with ghostly gray dash silently come the wreckage flattened apartment blocks. His male parliament and his wife dug through the rubble looking to find mister carlock's mother in tune they said somewhere under 6 stories of collapse concrete and contorted metal. Next door, Fatima Kumar, hunting the remains of her home for belongings of her two sons. Our earlier, she had found the two boys 11 year old Ahmet in 17 year old Abdullah, dad, cradling one another in the wreckage. The brothers grabbed each other as the welding came down. Numb with shock and grief, the residents of Berlin and other cities towns and villages across southern turkey were contending with freezing temperatures, power outages, and they thought to find the missing and keep themselves alive in the aftermath of two powerful earthquakes that struck Monday. As I said, more than 10,000 people are dead, hundreds of thousands are displaced, tens of thousands are missing. They don't have any help for them, but they do have hope because every few minutes in the search area, it feel like they're now in turkey. They call for a halt to all movements so they can hear Tapping, et cetera the cell phone batteries are dying out. So it's really not a great situation. California knows how to do with earthquakes and we keep our electricity on and the California exploration team has been has landed in turkey now. The Israeli team is there. They've already rescued four people. There are a number of different specialized groups around the world. They're two in the United States. I think one is in New York City and the other one is in LA, but a half dozen train dogs to stiff only for live people they look for cadavers later, different group of people. They know how to move the concrete, but what they can't bring with them is enough food, water, blankets, and essentials, hygiene, personal stuff.

Slow Joe Biden
"Okay, now let me begin by giving the president the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he meant every Sunday morning. Because I'm here to tell you, Joe Biden was not a daily communicant at his high school and college years. I'm just here to tell you that. Not a daily communicant. Those people are special. I want them all to pray for me. Thank you. They're better Catholics than I am by a lot. But I know what the double dip is. I've lived the double dip. The double dip is on, if you're a Catholic and you're also attending a separate church, fetching mister Hewitt as a Presbyterian Presbyterian, and I had to do both. But I am a Catholic Catholic, and I go to the Presbyterian Church. That meant this weekend, 5 o'clock mass, and it meant 9 a.m. 5 o'clock miles on Saturday and 9 a.m. mass on 9 a.m. Presbyterian services on Sunday. And that's fine. That's a double dip. I don't doubt that Joe Biden double dipped on occasion. I have in the black jerk. Maybe a half dozen times in 66 years, I've been to a black church service. Maybe he did a lot of that when he was 22. I doubt it. I really do doubt it. I doubt it a lot. I certainly know, I just, it's not plausible that Joe Biden is a daily communicant. It just isn't. So will the media be following up on that? I don't know, but what's it tell you about the president? Slow Joe Biden is in firm. And you know it, and I know it, and he is like, I'm going to be in 20 years. When I'm 86,
Inside Look at World’s First 3D-Printed Rocket
"Now to our series the new space race in our exclusive inside. Look at something that could revolutionize space travel. It's the world's first three d. printed rocket. Here's jacob board. It wants took thousands of american engineers more than a decade to get something into space. Now this company says it's huge three d. printers can make a rocket in two months. Maybe less we have a fourth generation printer if you haven't talked about publicly yet but it's ten times faster printing than this so instead of building a rocket few slides in sixty days. It'll take six days. Not only can the company make the big parts of a rocket like a nosecone but they can also make all the intricate components of the engines to one zero. The first launch plan for twenty twenty. Two relativity rockets is like a lower budget competitor to spacex carrying satellites for nasa the department of defense and a half dozen private companies at about a quarter of competing launch prices. But with one point three billion in funding it doesn't exactly feel low budget clients. I'm assuming are going to pay you enough to somehow make this all work more than enough to justify it. We make twelve million dollars launch from the customers. We signed up. We've signed up more launches than any other company in history before flying. Ellis doesn't just want to make deliveries into orbit though. I want to put a million people in mars. How far out into space do you think a commercial space industry can take it. It's really about the time line. And i think i liked it very much to back when we found founded the new world with christopher columbus. Yes certainly it'll be government. I dislike the new world was and then it'll transform into commercial. Ancient ambitions built on new

"Welcome back. Welcome back. Well as the salmon season winds down in the ocean, the man to tell us To what extent it's winding down is none of Andy Giuliano of Fish Emeryville. Good morning. Good morning, Bob. How are you doing? Just fine. I'm doing fine. It's a emotional day for all of us. I got up this morning. I mentioned earlier and Uh, watched all the 9 11 stuff and it just makes me shudder thinking about 20 years ago. Like like, I think it makes everybody shut her. How about you? Yeah, we all remember exactly where we were. You know, the minute practically on all the offensive that rolled out. It's really amazing. It's been that long. Yeah, shock shock to the country so Andy checked the, uh, the hotline a couple times, and it's kind of little up and down. What's the latest there with the salmon fishing? Yeah, I would say that's fair. It's winding down here. We're looking. We're waiting for a few more shots of fish. Ah, I would You know, Some of the small boats had official rods over fish Harada, you know, during the week and then the bigger boats, you know, 8 to 10 12 fish like that. You have to make the fight. When you get the bites. You got to make them count. That's for sure. As for sure, the loads are light now, so there's lots of room particularly midweek. You know, there's a lot of room on the big boats all spread out there. So you get some nice fall weather coming up here so Okay. I want to get out and get a last shot. And then I speak beautiful fish. Yeah, well, let's look time of year to get the big ones that's for sure. Yeah, There was a few fish that showed up in Bodega Bay. The middle part of the week. I know. One of the boats had a half dozen fish there. That was rock hotting yesterday. Uh, so We'll see what happens here. It's not unusual as we get into this latter part of September October that we also see some of the springer fish next year. Sponsors, uh, with the amount of bait that we have on the coast. That would be nice to get a little shot of those. Those are like, eight year old pound fish. Real nice LB fish. So, so we're gonna We'll keep fishing here before we switch over the rock. Cod obviously is full speed. Whether you're on the coast or Out of the islands. They're they're linked hard. Fishing is great, and the rockfish is exceptional. So we're going to stretch that out, and we'll see what happens in November Crab any any sign of the halibut? Uh, you know, the band Broad card boats are beginning more halibut than anybody, particularly Obviously, the boats fishing the coast. You know, we have some of the half day and the part like chips that are along the coast. Mostly targeting rock cod, but you slide off a rock and do a little sandy spot. And it's not unusual to get a halibut or two in the mix there, so that seems to be the best spot. Inside the baby. You know, the reports continue that there's a lot of halibut, but they're all undersized. So the guys are really just executing right through that and then heading out on the coastline there. Yeah. Um uh, the course the weather in the fall off the coast of California is just spectacular. And, uh, Yes, the time If you ever hesitated to go to the feral on islands for the quality rockers, That would be the time to book a trip, wasn't it? Yeah, we're in this. We're in a great little period down here where we get lighter winds along the coast. And we don't have much swell. There's not much seed that's generated up in the in the upper Pacific there, so we get pretty calm conditions this time here, particularly October. Generally, October's been my year in the year out. That's the best month we had a little nice little rain yesterday. They must. People got a little shot a ring kind of cleaned everything up, which was really nice, but there was no wind surrounding it, so the guys just kept right on fishing through it. Um, let's mention again. Let's keep up to speed on this. The California Air Resources Board as plowing ahead with this, uh, the most, uh, pollution spewing engines, which they claim The diesel fishing boats are, uh, they're they're trying to phase them out in a very short amount of time. That would basically at least temporarily in the majority of sport fishing up and down California because of the expense taken to Get new boats, New Motors the whole thing. Is there any any change in that that attitude they seem to be totally oblivious to a way of life that they may be destroying. Typical California department, you know? Yeah, I think some people are delusional about reality versus you know what's what you can see on paper and what you read so But almost every I do not know about that has not participated in the air racism, their resources Board room power program, so almost all the engines that we see I know in our harbor or either to tier two or Tier three, which is the cleanest engines that are available and everybody's participated. It's been a wonderful program. But they but the program that they're proposing now there's not a system that's available for fiberglass or even in aluminum boat because of the heat that they generate. So the Coast Guard's very pessimistic about it. In terms of being and putting people on boats with these systems that generate a lot of heat. And so it's just it's it's a disconnect. And like you said, we're all we all love, clean air and clean water. But it has to be from a practical standpoint and Yeah, not any type of, uh, there's not a product that's available that meets the guidelines that they're asking us to compete. Plus, there's also a disconnect that they're asking the passenger fleet commercial passenger fleet. To participate, but not the commercial vessels to participate, too. So I mean, which is just a game total contradiction within their own. I mean, my goodness gracious. He What is the matter with these? California department heads and lawmakers. They just They just don't follow anything through so well. Anyway. We'll keep an eye on it, Andy and, uh Give us a shout. If Sam if we get a school of salmon in and I hope we always do, And so we'll probably talk about it next week. You have a good week. Already, Bob. Thank you very much. Okay.

"half dozen" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"And that is what Brings evangelicals and Catholics and such into the fold and ends up leading to the congressional action that we talked about 1996. You juxtapose. Okay, So you've got the Mormon church pushing a certain way. And, as you say, I mean, really, they're engaged in a number of levels. Some, like they have gotten legal scholars looking at this, But there's money. There's just a whole, but there's political sort of activism. Um You. Jax Was that with a guy named Tim Gill, who is not actually far away in proximity from his opponents like not that far in the country. Um, here's pretty far away ideologically. What's What's his approach? So Tim Gill was openly gay man who had made um A lot of money through, uh, desktop publishing software. Cork was his company If you work if you worked on a high school newspaper, and like the 19 eighties or 19 nineties as I did, um it's products are familiar to you. He becomes sort of pulled into gay politics because he's based in Denver. There is a ballot measure that is designed to crack crack down on local gay rights ordinance. As in 1992, and He decides that he is going to start spending some of his fortune on kind of increasing acceptance for gay couples in Hawaii through political and sort of cultural social awareness means and he does that. Through the 19 nineties, and he ends up selling right before the NASDAQ bubble. Hurst's in 99 2000, and he is now sitting on a big pile of cash and is in kind of temporary retirement and Becomes particularly interested in sort of all the issues that are on the LGBT agenda. Marriage is a priority for him, and I think it's you know, it's important sort of. Think about that economic dynamic here. You know, Marriage obviously has incredible symbolic meaning to people and let's put that aside for one second, you know, but it also has a bunch of really urgent material rewards for people who can get married and what gain lesbian couples had come to learn by that point was that if you are Certainly an upper middle class, but possibly the middle class couple, and you can afford lawyers and have the kind of time and wherewithal you can often through contracts replicates. Almost all of the legal functions of marriage. It's difficult it can be expensive. You have to walk around with a power of attorney letter in your pocket all the time. In case something happens to your partners at the hospital knows that you're not a stranger to him or her, but You can kind of get their legally through other means. You set up a trust. You can do all this stuff, right? If you are a working class person and you cannot afford lawyers, and you're not setting up a trust, But you just want to make sure that if your partner You know, guys that you inherit their pension. For example, marriage is the way to get there. But if you're also filthy rich to use a technical term, Okay, the one thing that you cannot contract your way out of as the estate tax exemption. And so And if you are wealthy, you sweat a lot of time thinking about a state planning And so you mean you want to leave your estate to your spouse or like your you want for the first? Whatever it is now $46 million them not to have to. Pay taxes on insurance, right? Okay. And and the only way to leave that money as if they are a family member of yours, and, um, if you're strangers under the law there, it's a gift. And so Gil becomes the leader. And what is this becomes a circle of about a half dozen. Wealthy gay white men, Um, some of whom have made their money through tech entrepreneurship, some of whom have inherited it. Okay, but for them They are not particularly worried about getting fired from jobs because they are the they run a family office or founders in their own company. They are not worried about being denied a mortgage because they have seven houses. They have private security. So being the victim of a gay bashing attack is not like a really urgent concern for them. But you know when it comes to a state planning, there's no way to get around. What marriage gets you and so Tim Gill builds this political infrastructure with the help of an, uh several other very wealthy donors around the country, and what they end up doing is they end up basically funding the first national strategy to win gay marriage in the United States? And when is this can you get so they meet in 2000 and five to set up a strategy? And the leaders of the sort of big gay, legal and political groups come to Jersey City, New Jersey, and they set a strategy that is acknowledged to be sort of optimistic, but a plan to get before the Supreme Court with a successful case by 2025. Okay. At least the donors are like we're willing to put a lot of money into this. We just sort of want to have a sense of how where This is headed because there are 50 states that you have to fight in. And you know, how are you going to do this and what that ends up doing that ends up bringing a lot of money led by Gil but with others behind him to pay it for marriage work. Specifically and the human rights campaign. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. The big gay political groups have not made a priority out of out of marriage at all. And what happens is that this outside money kind of creates not only funds marriage advocacy, but forces the existing organizations to start to make a priority out of marriage because the big donors in the movement care about this in a way that they have not cared about other issues. And so you know, by the end of the two thousands. Everybody basically wants to be doing marriage work, because that's where a lot of the money is. So, okay. So 2000 and five Tim Gill, uh, his his group gets together in Jersey City, New Jersey. They say it sounds like we've got a 20 year plan. We're gonna We're gonna work on legalizing gay marriage. 2005. I want to play for you as that's kind of happening in those first years of the two thousands, um this sort of political landscape against which that's happening so gay marriage is not broadly accepted by either political party. Democrats, who I think people would think of as tending to be more accepting of gay marriage, dismissed the idea. I'm going to play you, Uh 2000 and four Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. And then the 2008 vice presidential candidate. That's Joe Biden and they are expressing their views on this issue. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. But I also believe that because we are the United States of America, where a country with a great unbelievable constitution with rights that we afford people that you can't discriminate the workplace you can't discriminate in the rights that you afford people. Let's try to avoid nuance, Senator Let me support gay marriage? No, Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a from a civil side. What constitutes marriage? We do not support that.

Rare Breakthrough COVID Cases Raise Concern

CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr John the Poop on another point of concern breakthrough infection. Dr. Paul Dupre is a vaccine researcher. He says it's crucial for people to get vaccinated. So there's less virus to mutate into a more infectious version, like the Delta variant, which has likely been causing the increased reports of breakthrough cases compared with previous versions of the virus. There's evidence Delta may attach to lung cells more efficiently. And a recent study found the Delta variant produced about 1000 times more virus in the nose than the original strain. It's not just about staying out of hospital and staying out of a coffin. It's about stopping. The likely heard that that virus will change shield in part by the contagious Delta variant.

The wave loomed above her roaring and raining gravel and then crashed down over her. He thought she'd be crushed but the monk had better control than that instead. She was gently buried trapped in earth from the neck on. She tried to cast a spell and the earth only rumbled tighter squeezing out her breath all right then. Rama said are you done. The earth grumbled and roared and started to swallow her up and then there was a crack and a blast of heat and suddenly nessie was free.

I mean that was the same problem that americans had who had teaser rates on their mortgages right their mortgage payments re sad. They can no longer afford to make payments so they defaulted and they mailed in their keys now. A lot of people think well the us treasury will never default because we can print money. No the us treasury can't print money the federal reserve can print money but at the federal reserve is fighting inflation. It is no longer in the money. Printing business it is in the money destroying business because the way the fed fights inflation is takes money out of system. It takes away some of the money that it's already put in. It is shrinking. Its balance sheet and so if the fed is shrinking balance sheet and the us government doesn't have tax revenue to pay the interest on the debt will. Then it's going to default the only way the government avoids default is if the fed doesn't fight inflation. The fed has to keep printing money to prevent the us treasury from having to default which means they're surrendering to inflation. You see you can't fight inflation and bail out the us government at the same time so. The fed has to choose between massive inflation or default on us treasuries. Now neither of those outcomes are good. In fact they're horrific but most people would believe that under no circumstances would the us federal reserve allow the us treasury to default on the risk free asset on the us treasury. In fact what would happen to the dollar if the us treasury default it of course what would happen to the dollar if the us treasury doesn't default because we have massive inflation instead.

"half dozen" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer
"George will too hot for Princeton. If either George will on this show number of times, it's funny or not funny. It's funny because it's ridiculous. It's not funny because it's ridiculous. But here's the thing. The left is always innovating when it comes to Suppression. When it comes to, frankly Their impulses in the direction of a totalitarian ism. And so it rather than have to endure the controversy in campus of very public dis invitations. You know Condi Rice being just invited from? I think it was Rutgers. Maybe it was BRANDEIS. You know, six of one half dozen of the other these days. And other high profile speakers invited to speak. Then students find out about it. Then they pitched a fit. And then the university were lance. And rather than go through that Melo drama, what they have now what they're doing now is having speakers counsel's pre qualify. Speakers that students are student groups wanted to bring the campus and eliminate them from consideration on the front end, so you don't have to deal with controversy in the back end, and that's exactly what happened as Adam Hoffman. Described in his piece of national review. Where Speakers Council deemed George will too controversial for the campus of Princeton. And worry that Princeton students could not handle George will's arguments. That doesn't speak particularly well of the Ivy League, but it does speak to the need. Theo support the work of the fund for American Studies, among other organizations, that's for sure. And for more on this, we're pleased to be joined by Roger Ream, The president of fun for American Studies. Roger. Thanks for joining us Good to be with you this morning down there. So you have you back in? Yeah. Good to have you back in the new year? Well, I mean, I guess the story is like a George will being Ah. You know, uh, too hot for Princeton, As I said, is why the fund for American Studies exists in part. Yes, We have been working very hard to along with others in our space to try to promote free speech and intellectual diversity on campus. It's Shied away and attacks all over the country. Unfortunately, despite efforts to promote what are called the Chicago principles to support economic Excuse me intellectual diversity. Conservative speakers are quite often kept from speaking on campus because they might trigger students and hurt their feelings. It's been, uh Quite a battle on some days. I think we're winning other days. You know, you see just these These outrageous things taking place? Well, the silver lining in this rather dismal story is that you had a sophomore named Adam Hoffman, who wrote about it and brought this tow our attention This we're discussing it, so you have people on campus. That are willing to stand up in the face of the orthodoxy and say, Well, how does this make any sense on dat? You know, ideally, a zoo graduate of one of your programs as I mentioned before, in our discussions, the comparative political economic systems Program. Ideally, you have students that come from the right left the center left center right? And they come to some sort of agreement about not agreeing, but agreeing to not agree in public and not agree while listening to each other. And so you could have a conservative and left leaning student at Princeton who think that George will should probably be heard. And if you want to bring some Left speaker. Then you go ahead and bring that speaker and we'll listen to him or her to Yeah, That's what it should be, Uh, that was really what was behind the free speech movement at Berkeley. Back in the sixties, it was to bring in, uh, speakers from all over the spectrum. Tol let their voices be heard and It's ah, a shame that this current generation seems to be so triggered by someone expressing a viewpoint. That they object to, and there have been some brave students. Like you mentioned who have been willing to shine a light on this absurd trend on campus to keep the views of dissent off the campus, and we've noticed. Yeah, go ahead now and, of course, to borrow from Andrew Sullivan. Since we're all on one big college campus now in American culture, it's not limited to the college campus. And so this is where Your fellows program and the graduates of Fund for American Studies programs have an impact in in the nonprofit sector and public sector and media in business. Yeah, Just in the last few years, we've added to our program's much stronger emphasis about the importance of free speech. The importance of being willing to hear views you might disagree with to be challenged. I mean, it's a shame that some of the students who come to our programs from college campuses around the country. Have never been exposed to the ideas were teaching ideas that you know we're responsible for America's great prosperity and for being an exceptional country, just calling in America American exceptional country these days on the college campus probably sends you into a detention or to be condemned by the student government. You know, now you're right. It's one big college campus with Congress this week, deciding that the word that male and female language has to be struck from the House rules and Uh, what I think I was told, But the chaplain had the end his prayer with a man and a women. 20 open Congress on, uh Monday or Sunday. Yeah, that's that's right longer allowed right, consistent with the language rules that Pelosi has instituted to eliminate offensive words like Mother daughter, Father, son, right. I just wish they'd eliminate the word mandate because I have too many mandates. And yes, it has. It is right. Um, well, so so tell us a little bit more. I mean, so so that the cultural battle and in a vitamin air of of Biden presidency the cultural battle the intellectual battle is going to be that much more pitched and so What is the fund for American Studies have in store Tomo meaningfully participate. Well, we're definitely picking up the pace of programming this year. Where were we learned last year that it was, We were able to transform some of our programs to online platforms because of the pandemic and the difficulty of doing in person program. So this year we're offering both. In person and online programs, which enable us to reach vastly larger numbers of young people, both expanding high school programs for students and teachers. We found more and more high school economics teachers reaching out to us to learn how to teach economics online, so we're doing programs for them. The demand among high school college shoots for in person program is still very strong. We find that our applications for our 2021 summer programs are running. Ah, Ahead of last year. Students want to be in person. They don't want to do things remote. They're tired of remote learning. We're expanding our reach to buy doing many more E books. You know, we've had some young Venezuelans traveling college campuses. I think they've been on your program to talk about what Venezuela's like and try to alert American young people to the fact that socialism Will destroy the lives of so many people, impoverished country and to reject socialism. So those are among the things we're hoping that you know, just continue to do. It has expanded scale in this coming year. Is Roger Green, President of Fund for American Studies. Roger.
