Trish Addresses Inflation and Gas Prices
"Like to just quickly get back to this inflation issue because I heard some policy ideals that came out of Joe Biden last night, but none of them fortunately, I hope. Do not have a chance of becoming a reality. You look at what's going on right now in the stock market. And of course, people are trying to digest all of this news. It's coming to us out of Europe, you've got Powell that spoke the Humphrey Hawkins testimony. They're on Capitol Hill and Paul's indicating you know what we're going forward with this. We're going to raise rates this month. I think you've got to under the circumstances with all this massive inflation. There's a chance that maybe he doesn't follow through with as big a rate cut or as many rate hike. Hike, I should say hike. Paul and Joe Biden there were as many rate hikes as anticipated, but we'll see. We'll see how this all shakes out. I do think it's time. I mean, it was time a year ago for Paolo to do something. So this to me is a positive positive element in terms of gas prices though and what their effect on the economy will be. They're going to be significant. I actually went to fill up my gas pump. I drive one of those really offensive gas guzzling SUVs. You're not supposed to have, but I've got one. I've got one, and I filled up the tank and it was over $4 a gallon, and I noticed that. I was talking to the guy and we were chatting about it and he's like, yeah, and this is despite the SPR, but you know, the SBR. That's gonna last you no time at all. I'm sorry, you can release all those strategic reserves, which by the way, Donald Trump bought a really low price. Joe Biden and company were accusing him of just trying to prop up the energy industry at the time. But it was pretty smart to buy it right when it was $10 a gallon, as opposed to a $110 a gallon, which is where we're heading. In fact, I would argue it would probably be one 30 a gallon, possibly one 50 a gown in the relative near future, which could translate into, I don't know, $9, a gallon that the gas pump, it's not inconceivable to see gas prices more than double from where they are right now.

ASU Puts Two More Asst. Football Coaches on Paid Leave Amid NCAA Investigation
"The arizona. State recruiting scandal continues so paul weeks ago Ataman brennaman tight ends. Coach was placed on administrative leave being connected to the recruiting of violations. That are being alleged now. On on monday they have now added wide receiver coach skill in. Db coach chris hawkins to pay administrative leave so training camp is underway. Asu is now down. Three assistant coaches at of course makes you wonder who might be next. Okay so what's interesting to me is adam. Brennaman was the first one who was really put out there in terms of he initially when he was a jay. J's don't make hardly any money so the idea that adam brennaman was bankrolling some of this seemed implausible if not downright laughable And then the two other assistants who are also starting out their careers as you mentioned. Both of those is to think that they were were masterminding. This situation on causally scheme. But that's what it feels like from. You know from the reporting doug and i have done some of the people we've heard from and so the idea that these three guys at the beginning of their career not being paid much money would be the ones funding all this and orchestrating. This does not add

"Saddam. Thanks very much for coming on the show. Really great to have opportunity to speak to someone with your experience and length of tenure in the automotive industry. Somebody just to kick things off can you. Maybe just tell us a little bit about loyalty. Logistics and hot came about and why you started it sure. Thanks thanks go to fifteen years ago. Been in the automotive industry releasing select university and at work for various Suppliers dms providers and used aggregation sites all sorts of technologically based businesses. But it must seldom apart. He started the beazley's we had one overriding aim and that was we observed the each of the oem's that we worked for each of the de la group should each of the dealers spent almost all of their marketing and advertising spend on attracting new customers. So the brand building or attracting nukus mr to buy new cars and they spent very little money on holly any of their attention on retaining the customers. It already sold to who knew them liked them. Trusted them use them for after sales but they spent very little time and effort in trying to retain them and we thought there was a gap. So we sell to go to the g. sticks with one side line to help dailies groups and oem's retain more customers along and then through the last fifteen years we've developed a number of products services and approaches and developed the business around that that single line.

What Are the Quirks That Come With Being a Developer
"Let's start with you telling us about your coding journey. Where they're all begin for you. I i started getting into coating during college. I started out as a psychology major and was pretty intent on finishing up. Undergrad getting a master's degree and being a counselor About couple years into it. I realized i liked the more hard science a lot. Better than sort of the sop science and social science part of it. And i had taken a statistics class. Like just a psychology stats. Class really looked to that. So i got into statistics and changed my major to that and at that point i had to take a bunch of like stats computing type glasses. So for instance statisticians tend to use programming languages like our or sass or even just like sql database management. And so that was really my first introduction to programming at that point. Like i realized if i to look at the t. between statistics and computer science actually like program a lot more than i liked the stats part of it. Nah i landed up graduating with degrees statistics. During that time. I just did a ton of learning on my own. Did a lot of like could academy courses recode cam fluoro- site videos whole time. Packer rank exercises. I even read through twenty programming textbooks now on just java script html and just building stuff just trying to make little side project snack things together. And after i graduated from college. I landed my first programming job. So what was it about that stats class. And then getting into programming. That resonated with you so is taking ard says stats programming. Which are and it was really amazing. Nina we could like run simulations and experiments just for typing a few lines of co dried. We could run simulations of very simple things like let's flip the coin hundred times and see how many times it lands heads or tails or even just like data visualization like we have data set and using just a few lines of code. You could use like a stats package like something like g plot to create this beautiful chart. That was really cool that you could like essentially build something out of basically nothing

"Welcome back. I'm talking the dawn. Hawkins ceo of national center sexual exploitation don. This is such a dark subject. You and the national center sexual exploitation. Give people hope that somebody is doing something. And i as i said earlier. I want to know how we and my listeners viewers can help. What can people do. I mean parents and grandparents right now as they hear something like this. what can they do. Besides go to the center to the centers website. Things are asking that as hard and dark as says there is so much hope. And there's so much good happening. So in addition to helping us says advocates hold these corporations accountable or going with us to congress asking them to pass helpful legislation. There's so much you can do at home and for the families around you. So i say one of the most important pieces of advice i can give you an. I'm a mom of four. And so i'm living this advice myself too but be where your kids are online. Sometimes i just want to be like i'm done online. I want to close my computer and be done. But i need to be present where my kids are. And that's that's so important to understand the the experiences that they're having there's also some really great resources. There's filters lot. All of our devices have built in parental controls. They're not perfect but turning those on we'll make such a big difference. In fact we just got a law passed in utah that says all smartphones and tablets if if turned on in the state of utah have to be the by default. The safety pieces have to be on. If you're underage and we're looking to pass that in other states as well so you could join with us having regular and frequent conversations your young people in your life about these issues and we might feel nervous and embarrassed to talk about it but they don't. They're hungry to talk about these issues so talking about it regularly with them is so key. the. I wanna go back to the dirty dozen list. You mention different mainstream tech companies. Maybe it's not just tech. Companies is it just accompanies companies or is it other kinds of companies focused mostly on tech because of covid everyone went virtual. But what company. I mean give me an example of a non tech company that would there'd be an issue on this. Let me tell you this. When united was on the dirty dozen list last year because airline night at airlines because sexual assaults were rampant on their among customers and flight attendants why they had bad policies for sexual harassment as well as they allowed cl- customers to watch pornography during lights when united. Whoa yeah united airlines allowed customers to watch pornography on flights when you're sitting point two inches are child's ripe from people next to you and children united now why so the other airlines have different policies. It's kind yet. They all now say that they don't allow it but they have. They are not good at training. Their flight attendant. So we're working with the airline industry to better trainer-fighters because increasingly this is a common thing. The important thing to know is united change because thousands of people sent messages to their executives through our tools. They agreed to change. And so there's there's some hope there and we are getting many of these companies to change policies as we hold them accountable. But this is. This is thing i mean. It speaks the vulgarization of the culture. You kinda think of what kind of pig would watch pornography on a point. It's so disgusting that it's inconceivable that somebody would be such tacky person that they would not even be aware that they're doing something in a public space. Let's be honest. it's a public space with. It's like a. It's a crowd. You're you're in a tight crowd with people sitting around trying to live their lives in. You're doing something like that. So it's just disgusting but then the idea. Is that if those people are going to do that. The idea that the airline would allow. It is just wild. I mean it's just wild and but other airlines. They don't have a record on this. There haven't been as many not as many cases but delta also i actually i was on a delta flight where a man watch pornography in front of me in front of me of all people say anything. Oh yes i said something. Oh my if anybody did did that near me they would be very sorry. Sorry and he. Because that's just so unacceptable. It's astonishing that people would do that. I mean as a man okay. I'm thinking about other women mothers grandmothers girls. I mean just just that is just. It is an astonishing thing that people could be so poorly socialized that they would even dream that that might be acceptable. And that's the perfect action right here when you see sexual abuse and exploitation calling it out and up an opposing it wherever you are on an airline but guys are total cowards. I've seen this. They don't want to say anything. I think we do. You know you know because people. I mean this gets to the issue that i talk about a lot about how people are ultimately selfish in the sense that it takes something to say something. It's something and you ought to be willing to do that for the sake of culture around you don't just think about yourself like it's gonna cost me something but it's the right thing to do and if everybody did that this would not happen. It will say that more than half of our advocacy campaigns. Win so more than half of the time. If you speak up when you see a great you will win. Oh no no. That's why i'm saying like way that it's preposterous to be cowardly because there is no question that if people do this it is very effective. Everybody if everybody said something or just made the person comfortable instead of like. Hey that's not acceptable. Or that's not or tell the flight attendant or whatever it is this would end because people would. The word would get out like you'd better not do that. But people are quiet and so people are allowing this to continue. Which is you know. it's so so it really is on us that we need to step up but i just. I'm just amazed. But i've seen stuff like this not quite not quite pornography but i'm always amazed with let me tell you. Another one of my favorite victories was with the department of defense. We what the department of defense on dirty dozen list a few years ago because sexual assault was rampant throughout the military and they were selling hardcore pornography through all the basics changes and they often allow pornography to be hung up in public and workspaces around the military so we called them out. Congress called them out. Thousands of individuals and military spouses and members called them out and they change. They totally got out of this. That's the whole thing is that it's just so hopeful when when we realized that this is doable. We can do something about it so you can speak up wherever you are.

"Hey they're talking to don hawkins. That's your married name. Don't because i was going to say you have a double you in both your surname and your listening dawn hawkins see of national center on ex school sexual exploitation. We're gonna talk more pornography It's it's everywhere it's disgusting. It's changing people's brains and it's messing with marriages. What do we have to say. That's new on this subject. This is this is alarming but in preparing for tests money for congress. We held three kind of informal focus groups with youth who are active church members. And i wanna tell you about that. So in virginia arizona and washington state and we asked these young people four questions. We asked her. Have you ever seen pornography on the social media sites iran and one hundred percent of all us in those three states said yes so they've all been exposed to on social media and social media not going to porn porn sites but on social media hundred percent of our young people ages fifteen to seventeen saw pornography on social media. We asked them had they been sent nude images by stranger on any of their social media platforms. Ninety five to one hundred percent said yes. Depending on the state we asked if they'd been asked to produce a nude image and send it to somebody through social media ninety five to one hundred percent said yes. Whoa asked to send their whoa. And in the fourth question which is very heartbreaking as we we asked them had they ever been solicited for a sex act on social media asked to in exchange for something of value. Money clothing you know some activity to send nude images meet in person etc and almost all of the use had yes. They've been asked to this. And this is. What's so alarming. Because we as parents have no idea that this is the experience of our young people. Even i didn't know that and so after church a couple sundays ago i was telling a mom in the parking lot about it and her seventeen year old girl walked up daughter and the mom said don. This isn't happening to my kids. And the seventeen year old came up to me emerald and i said emerald how about you. Has this happened to you. And she looked at the ground and said yes. They're not talking to their parents about this. But this is almost universally experience online so again people should go to jail for this kind of thing. People should be going to jail. Who are soliciting minors for this kind of thing. Why aren't they in other words. You know i'm gonna. I'm gonna play dumb because i actually am dumb especially on the subject. How is it that this is happening in america. I will say that a couple of years ago as we knew this was happening. The department of justice told us they were really focused on the dark web. And some of the most jake more grievous crimes. Not but but i think the reality is because they don't recognize it's happening just on mainstream media and it's happening to all of our website. I mean we're talking about tiktok. Instagram snapchat are the number one played. Instagram is the number one place in snapchat is instagram owned by facebook. Okay it possible that mark zuckerberg. I'm guessing he doesn't have kids. Because i will as kids. So would we care about this. I will say. Instagram has made drastic changes. We brought we connected with sex trafficking survivors in washington. Dc the oldest was fourteen years old and they explained to us how they were groomed lured etc on instagram platform. We went to instagram and they have made tremendous changes just a couple of weeks ago rolling out a new a new Setting where if you are over age eighteen you are not allowed to send a direct message to somebody under age eighteen which is huge because that was the number one way these predators were targeting youth. So this is this is just recent. We'll see how it plays out and how it curbs the problem but they are making changes. Is it enough. No and are what about the alley all the other social media platforms. I just You know i. It's so horrifying that. It's very tempting to look away just to say that this is so unpleasant as evil but we live in a culture where a lot of this stuff has been normalized And people shrug so. I guess we shouldn't shrug let me tell people again that you should go to end sexual exploitation dot org. If you're interested in this. I am just amazed that the focus groups that you mentioned that that pervasive it's everywhere so clearly people are making money off of this. A lot of money is being made off of this otherwise it wouldn't be so pervasive worse. Of course which is why. We can't look the other way and our kids can't look the other way it's everywhere where our kids are. Yeah i mean. It's astonishing i mispronounced. Soon dar's last name. I'm being told it's jones albain. Pichai pecan pie soon. Dr pecan pie is the head of google. I always just. I'm always curious about folks like this that they have tremendous responsibility and nobody knows who soon. Dr pye is. i've heard his name only now for the first time and these people have tremendous power tremendous power and they don't seem to be behaving in a way. That's consonant with the power we've given them and so we have to hold them accountable and i don't know where soon dr piquet lives whether he has kids. But these need to understand that if you have that kind of power you need to be held accountable and it would be nice if you tried to hold yourself accountable. He would be a nice gesture where i guess it's so funny because when we're talking about this we're always talking about social media and there was a day when it was print magazines when it was a tv. And you know they're they're these things keep changing but now it's become increasingly focused on social media and it's hard to uh to protect our kids. We're gonna be right back talking to don hawkins. Ceo of national center on sexual exploitation skiing.

"Does not have parental conflict now only because thousands of people joined with us in demanding that they institute them amazon prime also just filed but it took years of demanding so my request to all of you watching us to join with me at your voice. We have easy petitions going straight to the. Ceo's we have their faces you can see and you're sending a private message directly to them calling on them to change so that's a win. That was a win I'm assuming cinder call looks a lot like throw higher doll alvin. You might want to look into that. The kon-tiki and rocks petitions. We'll talk about that later. So these ceo's whether it's tim cook soon sooner or call or jack dorsey. They don't seem to be wanting to help us protect our kids. I mean this is. It's hard to think that that's possible because you think that any semi decent human being would see that as a priority. What do you suppose as in the head of jack. Dorsey always curious about the other side. Why why would they be working against. What most just most parents in the whole world would would be four. I don't get it. I mean. I have that same question. All i can say is quoting jack. Dorsey twitter's motion to dismiss. He says for example. You know we're seeing them for trafficking teenage boys and he says there motionless mrs. That's the law does not punish defendant or twitter for participation in a lawful venture with sex traffickers or knowingly but passively receiving the financial benefits of sexual king. So he's saying they're saying basically the laws allowing it as allowing them to make money off of partnering sex after so until we fix. The law is jack. Dorsey apparent do we know. I'd i don't re- tim cook apparent maybe because they're not parents. I don't know what to say To hip to understand that this is a real problem. Well parents in america need to step up so give us the website again. Because i think this is just so horrifying to me. Tell us the website so we can do something come to take action at end. Sexual exploitation dot org and sexual exploitation dot org end sexual exploitation dot org. Before we go the break. I just have to ask you. How did you get into this. I mean you said you were hungry. What were you doing in hungary. And how did this suddenly become an issue for you. Where'd you grow up. I grew up in denver and denver. An honestly i'll say that all of my all my siblings they're seven of us were impacted in some way or another by sexual abuse and exploitation not at the hands of family members but just because of the culture. We live in and so. I know that that's happening in great abundance to so many young people and so i was in hungary. Doing service mission. And that's where i saw. All of this rampant. It's just it's just extraordinary. I know i notice on your board a couple of people that i think i know. Robby george and Gosh i can't think of his name. The lawyer from western massachusetts had the had lee arcus. Yeah as soon as i saw their names i thought. Wow you got some solid citizens on your board all right. So we're going to be back. We're talking to dawn. Hawkins who is the ceo of national center on sexual exploitation. Please go to end sexual exploitation dot. Org end.

"See good to hater folks. Welcome back. I'm talking to dawn. Hawkins who is the ceo of the national center on sexual exploitation. This is such dark stuff but it actually is so encouraging to me that The national center sexual exploitation exists and is working against this legislatively. What was the thing you just mentioned to me off the air. Just a moment ago. One of the things. I think people could do a lot right now. Is help us change. Google and their chromebook. So right now. Google leads the market and handing out chromebooks to students who are learning from home virtual water. Chromebook alexa just like an ipad. But the google version. Okay so the google version of the ipad is called a chromebook and so they are giving them out so a lot of schools use chromebooks. It's the majority of the market and these are often not filtered not safe and so we're finding especially right now during covert as we have high in virtual schooling that kids are being exposed to sexually explicit material increased online bullying their rampant on social on social media. Either textbooks see. This is what i find interesting. Everybody act as though technology such a great thing sometimes but the idea that you could be bullied through your textbook. You think of a textbook paper. There's no chance that you're going to be bullied through that book but suddenly you say hey. Let's put it online. Let's let's give away these wonderful chromebooks google's doing this and suddenly now. It is a portal to every kind of distraction and of course things like bullying. That's kind of astonishing and google could fix this problem. They told us for years ago. That may be okay. Maybe we'll do that but now we're in a pandemic and they still haven't fixed said why do you think they haven't fixed it. Good question why would i say. Why haven't they fixed it. In other words. Google it would seem to me like any of these companies. They don't want trouble right. So what are they getting out of this. Is this a greed thing. Do they care so little about our children. They just don't care about this issue. I mean that's one of my questions to them. We've been working with them. And i believe people do care but why have they not taken action. I think they haven't heard an from enough of us to take action. They haven't felt the pressure felt the pressure from parents from schools or from congress and so. That's one thing that you can do to help us. Google told us earlier last year. They just want to hear from more people. They want this. Okay zeke up with me. Does anybody know the name of the head of google. Why don't we all know this. Who's the head of google soon. Dr what's the name soon dire. No wonder we don't know. I can't even say that soon died dr. Who who is that. The he's the ceo of google. How do we spill s. u. n. d. a. r. And we're kind of a name is snyder. Oh that's his first name. The first name is soon dr. Okay soon dr. We're talking to you pal. Obviously soon dr does not think much of Of our kids. And i just think that we need. We need to know who these people are that there are people who make decisions. We've seen it in hollywood for many decades that there are people who clearly would rather make a buck than do a little something to help our kids and we need to understand that if you use their products and give them money. You're saying you're okay. With that. And i i have to say to parents that you shouldn't okay with that. If your kids are using a chromebooks by google in school. I would even say why. Why are they doing that. How 'bout paper text. How about how about paper books textbooks. Now there's what is the benefit we're worried about the trees more than our children is at the issue. I really you know. I just wanna know i wanna find out soon. Doors last name is p p i c h well. They're not too many doors. So we'll say hastened are we're talking to you and i have to say this is unacceptable if you entrust a company with your kids. There's an assumption that you don't have to be looking over their shoulder that they want to have some kind of relationship with their customers but it doesn't seem like they do. I mean i can't imagine why they wouldn't take this seriously. I guess there's no incentive for them they're making money so one incentive we're calling for congress to pass the earn it act which is the only federal legislation right now where. There's bipartisan overwhelming. Bipartisan support the earn it act and it would create a accountability for the for big tex. There's minimum standards. there's transparency that's a. Where's the now we're waiting for it to be reintroduced. Soon it was. It was introduced in the last congress. So they'll be reintroduced in the next couple of weeks. It will now. Why wouldn't that have bipartisan support. I would assume that it would. it does heavy. Lobbyists are heavily. Bipartisan support our their lobbyists. Against yes if you try to google it right now. You'll only get negative articles and lies about it because big tech is one hundred percent against this law which would hold them accountable allow if they knowingly facilitating child sexual material. That could be okay so the name is soon dr peco a. l. I believe that's norwegian. Surrender pick call is using the money that we give him. When we buy google products and use google to hire lobbyists to work against this bipartisan effort. To hold him and google accountable. And i'll take tack okay so it's obvious that he doesn't want this to pass but that's so that's so so we've answered. My question is that they don't care about this in other words they clearly have Other things in mind. And i'm sure it's more than just profit but it's mostly prophet and we have to hold them accountable but of course the problem with these big tech firms is the effectively monopolies. That's the problem is apple. Introducing anything along these lines of the chromebooks. Do they have anything. Like that will is the same problem. And they're not doing anything to protect. Ipads are also given out but google chrome books by far has the majority of the market okay and is currently the most wicked soon after being told that his norwegian okay so What can we do because as talked you dawn. I mean first of all. i'm thrilled. You guys exists center a national center sexual exploitation. But what can we do. Because there's so many of us that you hear about things and you just don't know what you can do. Well joined with me and calling these companies to account for example with net flicks. We've been asking net flicks for years to parental controls to help us control what content..
"hawkins" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"And you are don hawkins. When did you start a national center and sexual exploitation. I did not start it. We've been around sixty years sixty. Yeah we focus on pornography initially and did a lot under president. Reagan bush Calling for federal investigations of obscenity but ten years ago we expanded to work focused on all abuse and exploitation issues. So what is this annual dirty dozen list. Oh that's my favorite project because we name and and frankly we shame. Some of the top mainstream companies in the united states. Who are who are propelling. The sexual exploitation industry forward companies like net flicks google instagram snapchat. And we we educate the public on the ways that they're involved in sexual abuse and exploitation and then give people opportunities to get involved in these comedies change. They almost always change their policies as walmart listed. Why is walmart on this list. We no longer have them listed walmart used to sell hardcore pornography. dvd's and magazines through their online shop. Amazon still is and and we also were asking walmart to remove cosmopolitan magazine which we would argue is harmful especially is pinkish. it is totally pinkish. It's fascinating how some of these you know the we think of them as cultural institutions. Helen gurley brown cosmo. And it's become just really really filthy. And gross it's tacky it's awful and It's important that people know that Well we're going to go to a break. I'm talking to dawn hawkins Who's the ceo of the national center on sexual exploitation and sexual exploitation dot org. We'll be right back. Hey folks how many years have been telling you about relief factor. What like four. The truth is i know there are millions of people in fact some say over one hundred million people struggling with some kind of pain maybe from exercise just getting older. That could do it getting older. Which is why. I am so impressed with pete. And seth talbot. They are on a mission. You rarely see this kind of focus. And commitment seriously they recently shared with me that they are doubling down and want to literally double their total number of happy customers in the next year. And i believe they'll do it. So here's the deal if you're struggling with back neck shoulder hip or knee pain. Even general muscle aches and pains than i'm suggesting you order their three week. Quick start still discounted to only nineteen ninety five about a dollar a day to see if we can get you at a painting and then after that less than the cost of.
"hawkins" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Folks. I am talking about a very important subject today. My guest is dawn. Hawkins dawn is the ceo of the national center on sexual exploitation the leading organization. I'm going to read this. Because this is amazing. The leading organization exposing the connections between all forms of sexual exploitation including sex trafficking prostitution pornography and child sexual abuse. dawn hawkins. Welcome to this program. There's nothing more important than this. I can't think of anything more important of tell me. I mean if somebody says to you what did you. How did you get into this. I mean this is an amazing thing to take on strike. It's a giant. How did you get into this well. At first i lived in europe. And i saw the intersection of prostitution sex trafficking pornography sexual assault all in all coming together there and hungary and when i came back to the united states i just thought is really focused on these issues especially the role pornography plays in fueling those forms of abuse. So i got involved and once you now you know and you can't not fight for good. Oh yes he can. That's the problem. But some people like you and i thank god for you and for others who do want you to. This is gruesome stuff. And i think you have to really be a strong person to be in this world because it's just so dark but tell us what we don't know those. I think that there are a lot of people are obviously men who think pornography probably as a kind of doesn't harm anyone or or something like that. It seems to me that you're saying that's not true. It's definitely not true. They're numerous public health impacts pornography impacts harming those who are depicted in pornography as well as those using and their families all around them. But you asked. What do people not know. I'd like to just shake into everybody. The fact is that our youth are being inundated with sexually explicit material and images. And that's what we need to attack right now. Actually let me let me say this. I want to be really clear. There's no question that pornography harms the users of pornography and the people around them in one way or another. That's a whole conversation but there is no doubt about that but i think people think well it's on me. It's kind of like drug use. It doesn't hurt anybody. It's just what i wanna do. But the fact of the matter is that the people involved in it in making it. It's a dark horrible world and that's that's really what you've been exposing. Yeah i'll share with you. We have a class action lawsuit right now against pornhub in one against ex videos. Those are the two largest pornography websites in the world. Alleging that they knew that child sexual abuse material is uploaded to their website. They knew that material depicting nonconsensual recorded individuals was uploaded and sex trafficking individuals the there are hundreds maybe thousands of victims who have had sexual abuse filmed and uploaded into these mainstream website. So that's only. I'm only talking about those who had nonconsensual abuse materials made of them not. I'm not even talking about the rampant abuse in the mainstream industry. But let me ask you. How is it that the people behind this are not in jail. How can we even be having this conversation. Abbas same question and demand to congress why are we not criminally investigating these websites. We we need to be. We just admitted a letter last week to congress. Eight hundred mostly survivors and ngos from seventy countries demanding criminal investigations. We can't let them run. Run run free and act with impunity. I mean it's horrifying when you talk about things like i mean i can't even repeat it. Almost you're saying that there are things that are nonconsensual. In other words somebody is sexually abused their filmed and that gets uploaded to. What is it pornhub. And what's the other one videos. Okay but only those sites even sites like twitter we have a lawsuit against twitter where nonconsensual content sex trafficked young men were filmed at age thirteen. They were lured. Targeted groomed filmed. That abuse was uploaded to twitter and allowed to continue to be shared on twitter. Twitter has refused refused to remove it even though the young boys said i'm a child here's my id. I'm a child. Twitter strategies used to remove it correct. They refuse to allowing. Why would they conceivably refuse to remove minors being sexually abused. That's been posted on twitter. What another was. I can't even imagine a reason what what. Why do you think that they would do something. In their motion to dismiss last week they basically said it's not their fault they don't have. It's not their responsibility to even to remove even a child sexual abuse material because they're immunized under a loss communicate. How does not worry that. Some father is gonna put a bullet in his head. I mean if your son is sexually abused as a boy and that's posted on twitter and then the head of twitter doesn't take it down. I would think it would be common sense that some irate parent would just lose it. How can you. I as a parent. I can't think of anything more horrible now. Obviously i wouldn't suggest that people be vengeful. But how can the heads of twitter. I mean particularly twitter. Not worry just on the most simple level that somebody is going to try to do something about that. Because i mean i'm astonished that's like a snuff film. How do you what excuses there. That's a good question. And i will say that the parents are there. And they are seeking justice which is why they have led this effort to sue them. And hold them accountable. I cannot imagine that that This is allowable in america. I mean this is what. I'm saying as soon as i get into this. I'm just astonished that this is possible. My question is why will twitter restrict sam speech but when it's child sexual abuse material and the children are coming forth saying this is me. I'm being extremely bullied. They won't remove that content. I don't know what to say. I mean. I'm really astonished at that. So where is this lawsuit now. How does this stand whereas it stands where they just. Twitter just filed their motion to dismiss now. Our attorneys are getting ready to respond. And so we'll keep you updated on how it goes but its groundbreaking precedent setting case. So you're the ceo of the national center on sexual exploitation. How can people help you in what you're doing. Well i'd say an initially we need you to join with us in advocacy. We need to hold companies like twitter. Google instagram account. All right now. Instagram is trying to release facebook with instagram. Ashamed released an instagram for kids. How can we even start to think that. That's a good idea when facebook is doing so little to protect kids on their platform at the moment..

How can we learn to embrace boredom?
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story mark. Hawkins is a counselor and the author of a book called the power of boredom. Hello mark how're you doing. Honestly i'm bored. I feel like i've been board for months. What have you been with your boredom over the past eight months. And what have we been doing in general during this time I find myself definitely reading a lot more. Certainly i have not been able to do all titties especially social activities and going to restaurants and so I've tried to do nothing at all sometimes But also doing what. I like to call a low engagement activities like You know reading or you know sitting on the couch and you know this chilling out and try not to give into sort of my restless urge to go in and do something whether it is you know go eat or you know maybe go have a drink or or something like that something along those lines. Let me ask you this when you say you try to. Just sit on the couch What do you do when you sit on the couch watching tv or you on your phone laptop well not to watch tv like if my purpose is to sit there and and do nothing. That's what i tried to do You know maybe. I will just to kind of sit there and just be there as long as i can. Sometimes you know. I have a pretty good view from where i live so i think it is a bit easier to stay out the window. Sometimes they do that But i just tried to be as a little engaged as possible and you know it's not always easy for me like i think that it is a. It's a process that i'm still learning to be more comfortable with boredom and learning more about how it affects me. Well let's start. I guess where your book starts. It's a term that we throw around all the time especially during long months of lockdown but what is boredom well boredom. It's really hard to pin down. Really because it i mean i call it an emotion but you could also call it you know a mood or a state of the human condition. Really what it is is. It's the lack of anything to do. It's the lack of finding something worthwhile to do with our time or something that we deem as important or that engages our minds and so in some ways it's an emotion because you know we're feeling it and think oftentimes it appears as a restlessness But it's also like a more sort of It's a mood right in the sense that it's a way that we are experiencing the world. There is a great quote. I think in the book. Where is everything around us. Seem to be drained of its meaning. It's not that we're board but everything around us has lost. Its purpose to us has lost. Its shininess. It's newness right and then it doesn't engage us any longer. See that i bet. Many people who are listening can identify with that feeling a lot things around our home that we use to you know look forward to getting home and enjoying or spending time with now just surround us twenty four seven and they no longer feel like. We should look forward to doing you know. Yeah i was really interested in. Why is it that when we have nothing to do. Why is it that we feel this. Need to go into something. And i thought that really spoke to something strange about the human condition in general. And that's that's where i'm coming from is i'm a student of the human condition you know. It did. My counseling degree In meaning and purpose and then phd also related to to meaning and purpose and along the way of doing that research. I discover that is very much related to boredom. And as i was doing all my research i came to the point that it seems that movement in some form. Another whether it's physical or psychological. Is something absolutely necessary for us as humans. And actually if you look around the world everything moves. Everything is always in flux and then obviously the contrast of that is boredom right so in some ways. We're meant to be moving all the time. And it's really you know if you think about it. Our our hunter gatherer ancestors if they didn't move all the time whether it was hunting forging making spears or whatever it might be they would have died and so it's almost a survival instinct to keep moving forward yet today. I think we're in such a state that we're going way too fast so we need to rein it in a little bit just like we're meant to eat. You know certainly meant to eat every single day. But we're not meant to eat. You know ten thousand calories. And i think that's where we are today is that were meant to move. But we're just not meant move and as fast as we are and so that's why it has become so uncomfortable for us to board and proud to why we need to be more board and really listen to what's going on in that space when you talk about our need to move and the fact that we're moving more and faster than ever before let's leave the pandemic for a second. We'll definitely talk about that. You're not necessarily talking about physical movement right. yes exactly you know. I think like animals. Obviously you know. They're always physically engaged but humans justice psychologically engaged. I think it's just as as needed for us right. Yes diving into something that engages our minds so so given that then Shouldn't the past twelve months have been really good for us in some way that to give us a chance to to slow down and not have Places to go and people to see all the time yet know for sure. I think it has been a good opportunity. But i think the problem is. Is that you kind of have to be a student of boredom to actually take advantage of it right and most people came into the pandemic with the attitude that most of us had for most of our lives. Which is it is a bad thing that needs to be avoided so therefore a lot of us just filled it up with something different right and maybe that's a good thing. we discovered new things that we enjoyed. And there's nothing wrong with

The attack belongs to the so-called supply chain attacks methods in means of carrying out this cyberattack allow to connect it with one of russia's hackers spy groups this is therefore a different matter entirely from the distributed denial of service attacks ukraine complained of at the beginning of the week the de dos attack targeted.

Modern Oracles and Astrology
"Welcome to kids myths and mystery signer host. Kit chrome with this podcast. I begin a month long examination of modern oracle's and their methods of divination last friday. I mentioned how not all forms of designation demand a psychic or even a sensitive one. Such form of discrimination astrology as common popular astrology is today is complex but as mentioned does not rely on the reader having psychic abilities instead relies heavily on planets and stars. Initially you might scoff at the idea of pulling any kind of prophecy from the heavenly bodies. But let's take a look at the history of astrology. Mayan astrology is a variation of mesoamerican astrology. One of the most forward thinking kinds of astrology of times. Mayan calendar's comprised of twenty day signs and thirteen galactic numbers. Making two hundred sixty day. Calendar year the mayan study of the moon planets milky way son was some of the most accurate pre telescope astronomy in the world. Mayan astrology goes back to around the fifth century bc. Then we have england stonehenge. Gerald hawkins work on stonehenge was first published in nature magazine in nineteen sixty three following analysis. He had carried out using a harvard. Smithsonian ibm computer. Hawkins found. Not one or two alignments but dozens. He had studied one hundred. Sixty five significant features at the monument and use the computer to check every alignment between them against every rising and setting point for the sun moon planets and bright stars the position say would have been in in fifteen hundred bc so has astrology around for a while no doubt but let's go back to present to find out how astrology works. Here's a simple answer. Astrology works on many levels at the simplest level. It is not unlike a complex clock the uses the motions of the planets in a similar way to the movement to the hands on the face of a clock. Now let's dig a little deeper. Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual mu personality and environment depending on when he or she was born. Astrologers print horoscopes and newspapers that are personalized by birthday. These horoscopes make predictions in people's personal. Lives describe their personalities and give them advice. All according to the position of astronomical bodies a survey conducted by the national science foundation found that forty one percent of respondents to their poll. Believe that astrology is very scientific. This begs the question astronomical bodies affect our lives. Solar flares cost electro magnetic disturbances on earth. That can disrupt satellites and even caused blackouts. The position of the moon costs us ocean tides. If you're a fisherman that position of the moon can have a significant effect on your livelihood. The solar wind causes beautiful aurora and sunlight itself is the main source of energy for our planet. Still the question. How is strategy as a tool of divination astrology uses a set of rules about the relative positions and movements of heavenly bodies to generate predictions and explanations for events on earth and human personality traits. Some used astrology to generate very specific expectations. It could be verified against outcomes. What does science have to say about astrology. Simply that it's not scientific yet. Hundreds of thousands of people have been influenced by designation nation provided by astrologers millions across america. No there astra logical sign and read their horoscope in the newspaper. Daily get this j pierpoint morgan. One of the world's greatest fight answers was suspicious of accepting planetary advice but ended up applying astrology to all of his personal affairs.

And this will really get ya jay. Jacob stout jeff pierpoint morgan and seymour cromwell comprised a bracket of three successive presidents of the new york stock exchange who utilized astronaut. Advice implanted their operations. They scoffed at this. However upon the arrival of the wall street crash these men had been warned by their astrologers and thus averted disaster disci- support astrology is a form of give nation.

He's seen his share of floods over the years, and this week he's getting ready for rising water levels. I've got Pigs in my greenhouse, I'd probably have to move. So I start thinking about where everything is where the water levels will be and what needs to be brought to high ground And the next thing you know, this area's an island.

Why Athletes Want Trademarks for Everything
"Sir ryan. I'm super curious. How did you land on trademarks as something to write about in the first place. Well i was actually working with as an editor on a story. Earlier this spring about the buffer brothers ryan hawkins smith is an editor and writer for espn dot com and he reported on the rise of athletes seeking trademarks which saw an enormous uptick in two thousand. Twenty michael bruce buffer Most people know the michael for let's get ready to rumble. Yes we work on this story. We discovered some numbers that we thought could not be right and the numbers were that trademark alone. That one sentence that michael says in the ring may have netted the buffer brothers north of one hundred million. Maybe three four hundred million dollars over the years but yeah it was bonkers but it checks out that one phrase it's a business unto itself like one of my favorite details. We were working on this. There's a website for michael buffer and. Let's get ready to rumble where you can go and rat out people you have seen or heard using that phrase get ready to rumble and in return for being a horrible internet informant. They will mail us some buffer merge and then they will pursue legal action so i was just thinking as i read all of this. I got a dive into this world. I need to know more. So i want to be very clear about this. Then what's the motive for filing a trademark ryan. If you're an athlete so a lot of trademarks can be quite lucrative. I bet we ended up talking quite a bit about the ones that make a lot of money. The vast majority though are athletes protecting themselves protecting their trademark. Just in case because the reality is when you think about hail murray as big play as that was and as much as it it resonated in the sports world like how much money. How many t shirts saying hail marie are. They actually going to sell like if they're lucky. What fifty thousand dollars. It costs a couple thousand dollars to to get an attorney and to get a trademark so it's actually a really bad business plan most of the time but it makes sense that you would go and protect your athlete like the last thing i think a manager or a business advisor wants is to have to come to kyla murray after murray says hey why am i seeing coffee mugs outside the stadium that have my raise and picture on them so it's mostly about protection. This is also an industry that you say has been not only connected to sports and athletes for decades and decades. It's also changed in the past decade or so. How did that come to be. There's two answers. The short basic answer is that good athletes have management people around them at bigger teams than ever think about this stuff all of the time but i go down a rabbit hole about the more meta answer which is applications went from two hundred sixty nine thousand in the united states in two thousand eight to twice that in twenty twenty Oh a small number actually athletes. So this is a society thing. And so the wormhole that i go down is just how much humans are more cognizant of the idea of celebrity and individual branding than ever before and you could point to social media for some of that. You can point to the kardashians. Maybe even donald trump as examples of successful personal branding
