It includes an aircraft carrier, the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN as well as destroyers, a guided missile cruiser and group bomber aircraft. Why are they all headed to the Middle East? It's to send a message to the nation of Iran it forms, the northern border of the strait of Hormuz and American officials say they have specific and credible intelligence that the Iranian military and groups that operate beneath it are planning to target US forces in Syria. Iraq ended seat tensions between Iran and the US are soaring last month America declared that part of Ron's military is a foreign terrorist organization and Iran responded by decl. Clearing. The US is a state sponsor of terrorism because Marica accuses Iran participating in terrorist attacks around the world. It's trying to pressure Iran to change its behavior and one way it's doing that is by blocking Iran's revenues from oil sales, which are the main source of the country's for an income, Iran. His said it would continue finding buyers for its oil and using the strata poor moves to ship it it also directly warned America not to block or interfere with the straight. But while American officials say the US isn't seeking war with Iran in his prepared to respond with quote unrelenting force to any running attacks on American interests or Allah next today. New conversation is taking place around events that occurred three quarters of a century ago. While the diary of Anne Frank has served as an enduring inherently account of the holocaust, the diary of Avon Hyman is barely noon at all it to involves teenage girls true experiences of Nazi persecution and liking. Frank Eva also died in a concentration camp, they were both among the six million Jews who perished in the genocide. But there's a new interpretation of EVA's experiences aimed at a twenty first century audience on the twenty first century social media platform, and while not everyone agrees with how it's being presented. It is reaching hundreds of thousands. More than seventy years after the holocaust. There are dwindling few survivors to pass on their memories their stories commemorated in documentaries and museums. Amidst a the're their lessons are fading. Hi, my name is Eva, that's me. A Hyman is the new face of those lessons. The thirteen year old Hungarian Jew. Kept a diary in the last months before she was deported Auschwitz in may nineteen forty four where she would die. Surrounded by war. But I'm always seeing restore was all but forgotten until Instagram brought it back to life. We are looking for a way dill's this memory, and manages mayor Maury in a way, he's going to be relevant fully younger generation today. Avis diary was reimagined on social media on March thirty first nineteen forty four. She wrote today an order was issued that from now on Jews have to wear a yellow star shaped patch. The order tells exactly how big the star. Patch must be. And that it must be sewn on every outer garment jacket or coat when grandma heard this. She started acting up again, and we called the doctor. The idea to bring the diary to life on Instagram was the brainchild Monty and my caveat. Who wanted the holocaust reach a younger generation the diarrhea journal is very short. It starts February twelve when it's birthday on March. The Germans invade into Hungary in may thirtieth. She's already the train to oust tweets. So let's say journal a journal of hundred eight days, that's all I don't think it was. He's of a story was released on the eve of holocaust Memorial Day in Israel by that time, it had hundreds of thousands of followers. Not everyone has been thrilled with the Instagram story advertised on billboards like this here behind me all around Tel-Aviv critics of dumbs down the holocaust and his PR campaign in bad taste, others said it's very short distance from social media campaign like this to selfie said. Outwit s-. That was never the intent behind Abraham and story, of course, social media, especially Instagram is shallow. If you're looking for content. That is shallow. And if you're looking for content that is powerful and has magnitude and can cause for Volusia, even you will very easily find it their final diary entry written three days before she was deported from Hungary. She wrote dear diary, I don't want to die. I wanna live even if it means that will be the only person here allowed to stay. I would wait for the end of the war in some cellar. Just as long as they didn't kill me only that they should let me live. This was a way of humanizing the holocaust for a modern audience making it more relevant to millennials. It's the same.

Deadlines: Iran Deal, Climate Crisis, NFL Kickoff
"It's thursday september fifth. Welcome to skim this where breaking down the most complex stories of the day and giving you the context on why they matter iran's calling on a few european countries to lend a hand to help them get out from under crippling sanctions. We'll connect the dots on how those countries are responding and where the u._s. comes into play then democratic presidential candidates all basically agree that climate change is a huge issue where they differ is how to solve it and finally we've got your prime for tonight's big n._f._l. Kickoff we're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skim this. The the most complicated story today is about iran hitting the snooze button yet again on the twenty fifteen nuclear deal. The country's been in an economic bind ever since the u._s. Started had reissuing sanctions against them last year and now iran's president says he plans to break more promises associated with a nuclear deal and ramp up the country's nuclear enrichment program graham unless major players in europe help iran out financially the deadline they gave those european countries is tomorrow but now iran says we'll give you some more time sort of today. We're gonna get into how we got to this big deadline in the first place. How european leaders are responding and where things stand between between the u._s. and iran right now. Let's start with a quick recap. In two thousand fifteen six countries and the european union came together with ron and made a pact they lift sanctions on iran. If iran accepted strict limits on its nuclear program so that potentially building a weapon would be really difficult difficult than last year. President trump pulled out of the deal. He said that it wasn't tough enough on iran and that he could negotiate a better deal so his administration started sanctioning iran again and some of them hit iran's biggest commodity oil all the other countries in the deal the u._k. France germany germany china and russia have all tried different ways to keep the deal intact. They want to find a way to keep iran deal by making it worth. Iran's wile financially really but all the new u._s. Sanctions are making that really difficult so back in may on the one year anniversary of trump pulling out of the deal iran's president hassan john ruhani said he'd start pulling out of parts of the deal to july inspectors found that iran was making good on that threat they had stockpiled more enriched uranium. The deal said they could only slightly more iran gave the rest of the countries in the deal and ultimatum either help us or we're going to take this further further the deadline tomorrow so like we said european leaders have been making moves taub help iran make money moves legally after a lot of work france germany and the u._k. Came up with a program called insects that would allow iran to do business business in europe without getting hit by u._s. Sanctions t._d. On whether that would actually work in the meantime france had a separate additional idea earlier this week french president emmanuel macron proposed offering iran a fifteen billion dollar line of credit. That's about half of the revenue. Iran normally gets from its oil exports exports each year so the money could help iran makeup for some of its losses. Thanks to the u._s. Sanctions all around would have to do is go back to playing by the nuclear deals rules rules problem is not everyone is getting on board with. This and iran's been kinda pissing off the country's trying to help them out for example. They've seized a few ships ships in the very important strait of hormuz including one with the british flag so the brits haven't exactly been pleased with iran though they're holding holding their tongues as they try to salvage the deal and now they're feeling the pressure from one of iran's enemies israel israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu actually flew to london today at the last minute reportedly to try to convince british prime minister boris johnson to quit talks with iran and rebuke france for trying to issue this line of credit meanwhile germany's saying it's time for the u._s. To come back to the table and clear things up with iran once and for all their foreign minister said last week week that a conversation between the u._s. and iran would take priority over whatever the e u once trumpeted he'd be interested even as his administration creation continues to wage a war of words with iran rania said not until sanctions are lifted and in the meantime the u._s. Says iran is still going around those sanctions before the u._s. Reissued sanctions last year iran was exporting about two point three million barrels of oil per day since then oil exports sports fallen by more than half but they're still exporting some oil and the u._s. wants to put a stop to that last week the u._s. Started imposing posing new targeted sanctions on an iranian oil tanker that they suspected was shipping oil to syria the ship turned off its tracker on tuesdays so we don't really know where it is. Now it was last seen west of syria. Big red flag and reports have emerged since then that atop state department official had actually emailed the captain of that ship before issuing the sanctions trying to convince him not to help the iranians and to steer the ship somewhere else. The us official reportedly offered the captain several million dollars but the captain as far as we know didn't take him up on that guy is apparently one of around a dozen ship captains to get this offer so with the u._s. is calling its maximum. Pressure campaign against iran is getting personal like emails to your phone personal so what the skim tomorrow is the deadline iran gave the u._k. France and germany to help them get out from under u._s. Sanctions and on saturday iran's atomic energy agency ency is reportedly supposed to announce what parts of the nuclear deal it'll break next iran's president said last night but it plans to start developing new centrifuges that could to enrich uranium at a faster pace but iran still seems down to talk according to the associated press iran's president has indicated that after saturday they'll give give their european partners another two months to come up with a plan even though the trump administration is reportedly not okay with france issuing this fifteen billion dollar line of credit to iran president trump has held open the possibility of talks with ronnie in a couple of weeks. There may be an opportunity for that when everyone heads to new york for the big united nations general assembly meeting another big issue that will be discussed at the u._n. Climate which is turning out to be a big topic in twenty twenty election. That's it's next climate. Change had a starring role on cable news last night c._n._n. Dedicated seven hours of airtime to talk with democratic presidential candidates about the climate a town hall means that it wasn't a full on debate anchor spoke to just one candidate on stage at a time but c._n._n. <music> advertise this like a wrestling match crisis by war sanders peres footage hooker castro san candidacy. It is but this wasn't a brawl. Every one of the candidates agreed climate change is a big problem and when they did disagree. We learned some things. One thing they disagreed on was whether natural gas should still be treated as a bridge fuel. That's useful for winning the u._s. Off of coal for things like making electricity ditching coal as an energy source has been a top priority for environmentalists and over the last decade. The u._s. has is gone in that direction. Natural gas production has gone way up while reliance on coal keeps going down but how natural gas is produced can be controversial official like fracking which involves using high-pressure water and chemicals fracture underground pockets of natural gas allowing the gas to be extracted fracking has been tied to contaminate drinking water and a spike in methane emissions and in rare cases earthquakes and natural gas pipelines are also controversial challenge by one student activist last night candidate hooghly on castro said my bad that while he used to see natural gas as a bridge fuel that bridge is coming to an end he now says states should get to ban fracking if they want to bernie sanders and kamala harris went further and backed a nationwide ban on fracking but joe biden and amy klobuchar took the middle road saying that a ban wouldn't pass congress but they'll still review existing policies candidates also disagreed last night about another source of american electricity nuclear power and whether the potential waste left behind means. It's too risk to be green. Andrew yang said he's down with nuclear and that outdated technology gives nuclear a bad rap. Cory booker was also on board. This is the exciting citing thing next generation nuclear where the science is going to me. I am like science fiction but others weren't so sure sanderson harris worried about dealing with nuclear waste and basically said let's focus on other green energies instead then came the big uncomfortable question and whether any flashy ideas dem's have to solve climate change have any chance of becoming law because right now republicans control the u._s. Senate and dem's would need sixty votes to avoid being blocked filibuster. Elizabeth warren has long called for getting rid of the filibuster p. Buddha jed says he's open to it to last last night. Harris set in order to get green new deal past. She'd get rid of the filibuster too but sanders has different approach. He said he'd used something called the budget reconciliation process to avoid the filibuster and past climate bills with just fifty one votes not sixty although that wouldn't necessarily work for everything the new york times says these marathon town halls mark the first televised primetime event in which candidates just talked climate the question now. How is what role will climate play wants democrats get back to debating and when one of them squares off against president trump the national football colleague kicks off its one hundredth season tonight.

Trump ordered an attack on Iran but called it off at the last minute
"The daily Joe twos. Big idea is sponsored by US Bank, US Bank believes communities thrive. When individuals succeed working together, we can help create economic opportunity for all. Good morning. I'm James Hillman from the Washington Post. And this is the daily to oh to for Friday, June twenty-first in today's news letters from Mississippi archive undercut Joe Biden's efforts at damage control, the NRA sidelines, it's top lobbyists after discovering text messages. It says implicate him in the failed coup attempt against Wayne LOP year and millions of undocumented immigrants have gone into hiding ahead of impending ice free. The first the big idea. President Trump ordered an attack on Iran yesterday in retaliation for the downing of a surveillance drone in the strait of Hormuz, but he called the operation off just hours before it was due to occur. Planes were literally in the air ships were in position troops were in motion. But no missiles had been fired. When Trump sent word to stand down administration officials say, the president approved a series of counter strikes against Iranian radar, and missile batteries, after the revolutionary guard shut down the navy drone off runs southern coast, but Trump changed his mind. It's not immediately clear why but the decision was first reported by the New York Times and administration. Officials confirmed it to us as late, as seven PM military, and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike after what we're told was an intense debate inside the situation room earlier in the afternoon, speaking alongside visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Oh, Trump condemned the shootdown, but also appeared to tamp down speculation that account or strike was in the works. He said the drone may have been shot down without the knowledge of Iranian leadership. But then the Iranian government released video footage of the drone being shot down over triumphant music on Thursday, the European Union announced that officials from Germany Britain, France. Russia, China and Iran will meet without the United States next week to discuss strategies to salvage the nuclear pact despite renewed US sanctions and Tehran's threat to exceed limits on its uranium stockpiles. This is happening is nearly a quarter of the world's oil passes through the strait of hormones, which connects Middle East energy producers to markets around the globe overnight, the Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order prohibiting all US aircraft operators from flying near Tehran controlled airspace. Many international flights have been canceled this morning that go through the region. This is all happening without a permanent. Secretary of. Offense or a deputy secretary of defense at the Pentagon acting secdef. Patrick Shanahan is stepping down. Today. He withdrew from his confirmation process to become secretary after revelations about past family, strife, he's handing off responsibility for the military to Mark Esper- who now serves as secretary of the army, it's unclear how this turnover will affect the internal debate at the White House about dealing with Iran. But some defense officials are privately voicing alarm that a cabal of hardliners led by national security adviser John Bolton who was publicly advocated regime change in Iran in the past is trying to create the conditions to make war with Iran inevitable and they fear the lack of strong leadership at the Pentagon, maybe strengthening Bolton's hand. And that's the big idea here are three other headlines that should be on your radar this Friday. Number one. Joe Biden on Wednesday night described his relationship with Jim Eastland as one he quote had to put up with. He said he disagreed with the Mississippi segregationist unquote, everything he stood for, but a cache of letters and Eastland papers at the university of Mississippi show, a very different kind of relationship one in which they were aligned in work together on one of the biggest civil rights issues of the nineteen seventies Biden was a freshman Senator when he reached out to Eastland to solicit support for one of his earliest legislative proposals. The courts were ordering racially segregated school districts to bus children to create more integrated classrooms, a practice Biden opposed in wanted to change through so did Eastland and Eastland helped him out Biden set at the time that he didn't think busing was the best way to integrate schools in Delaware after demanding that Cory Booker apologized to him. For criticizing his comments about working well with racists, and segregationists, in them, being civil Biden called up the New Jersey, Senator to try to smooth things over and last night, Biden went to the capitol to meet with members of the Congressional Black caucus today. He's going to be in South Carolina. He's meeting with African American leaders before Jim Clyburn, fish fry to try and turn the page. Number two, the National Rifle Association sidelined its top lobbyists. Chris Cox after accusing him in court documents participating in what it describes as a failed extortion scheme to rid the organization of its top executive Cox's, a well-known figure in DC is the NRA second in command. And he leads its powerful political arm. He's been placed on administrative leave after the organization, follow lawsuit in New York against former NRA president Oliver North from the Iran contra scandal who resigned in April after accusing the NRA of exorbitant spending. The chief executive Wayne LaPierre accused north of attempting to extort the group in its new suit. The NRA accuses Cox of participating in a quote conspiracy with north law Pierre accused north of working in concert with the groups estranged public relations firm Ackerman McQueen in its lawsuit against north, the NRA says that the former marine Colonel said he could. Work with Ackerman's co-founder to negotiate quote an excellent retirement for LOP year if he cooperated now. The lawsuit also implicates another board member. Former Oklahoma congressman democrat, Dan, Boren in this alleged scheme. Born didn't respond to our request for comment and Cox calls the allegations against him offensive and patently false. He's led the lobbying arm of the group since two thousand and two tax records show, he was paid one point one million dollars in two thousand seventeen we also are learning the NRA has placed one of Cox's, top deputies Scott Christman on administrative leave as well. Number three undocumented. Immigrants are trying to stay out of sight as Trump repeats his threats for massive raids. The president's proclamation that federal agents will soon round up millions of families illegally in the country and deport them has accelerated the fear that has been building up for more than two years. Among the nation's estimated ten point five million undocumented residents parents are keeping their children at home out of summer programs shopping trips are being consolidated to limit driving migrants without papers or avoiding large crowds and they're not going out at night. Some have stopped attending church services. They're praying at home, so they don't get picked up one hundred woman told us that she's been hunkered down in her. Stuffy apartment since hearing about Trump's announcement. She said she feels like a prisoner. Meanwhile, more evidence is emerging of young migrant kids being treated poorly in you. Government custody at the southern border a legal team that interviewed dozens of children at a border patrol station in Texas found that some two hundred fifty infants children and teens are being locked up in traumatic endanger situations. Three girls aged ten to fifteen said, they'd been taking turns watching over a two year old boy, because there was no one to look after him when the lawyers saw the boy he wasn't wearing a diaper and had wet his pants and his shirt was smeared in mucus, the lawyers told the AP that at least fifteen children at the facility had the flu and some were being kept in medical quarantine, the children told the lawyers, that they were fed uncooked frozen food or rice and had gone weeks without bathing or getting clean change of clothes at the facility in Clint, which is in the desert scrubland, twenty five miles southeast of El Paso, the head of the border patrol acknowledges that children need better, medical care, and a place to recover from their own is's. But he said they're overwhelmed. Meanwhile, a Trump administration lawyer argued in open court this week that detained migrant children do not need access to soap or toothbrushes for the federal government to comply with a legal requirement that they be held in quote, safe insanitary conditions. The administration says giving kids toothbrushes and soap was not explicitly listed as part of the landmark nineteen eighty-five Florez case, which established guidelines for the way miners held him federal immigration detention. Must be treated. So therefore they say it's not necessary. And that's the daily to two for Friday, June twenty-first. Thanks for listening. Have a good weekend.

Episode #2: #hottakeover your commute Iran
"Hey Everyone David Branston with your host of the hot ticket today. Podcast we are coming to you live from World Broadcasting Headquarters. If you've seen the picture you've seen the SHAG carpet and you know how excited did I am that you've join me. Today's episode is going to be one that we released weekly. It's called the hot takeover. Your commute and the intent of the podcast just to help get you set in ten minutes for the work week ahead so we'll look back on the previous week. Major News events major things that are driving the energy industry some interesting and facts and any other things that we kind of want to talk about last week with it bringing in two thousand and twenty not a ton of energy news to discuss on a personal personal notes. I do do sober January. So if you see me in January you'll see that I pound soda water and lime like it is going out of style. But the annual tradition. I don't always make it to the thirty first. If I'm honest depends on what major events I have coming up at this year. I'm really excited Want to kick start the health getting back into into running so that is what I'm doing. I wish you and your resolutions. The best as you kickoff twenty twenty with a bang well speaking of kicking off twenty twenty with a bang. I think the only thing we really need to talk about on this episode is what happened on Thursday night. In Iran and major so Mani Was A was an Iranian in general before the airstrike in Baghdad at the Baghdad airport ended his life and I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the good the bad ed or the ugly of the geopolitics of that situation because quite honestly there's a lot more politically savvy. Geopolitically Savvy people that can talk about the political ramifications locations and when you're talking about the Middle East your guess is as good as mine a Guy I follow and I have in the show. Notes is Peter Zeon on geopolitics. Really good expertise expertise on the Middle East. So it's in the show notes if you want to do a little bit more reading I definitely recommend Having a look at his articles the New Yorker also had some nice ones over the weekend. So I'll post posting links to that but broadly speaking I think to understand really what the impact of the Iranian airstrike or the American air strike on Iranian general in Iraq. That's quite a mouthful really understand. I think what is going to come out of that you need to make a projection as to. What is Iran going to do in response some interesting facts about Iran? They have the capability of producing three point. Eight million barrels a day and as you know global oil demand slash supply is around one hundred million barrels a day so roughly roughly. They do four percent of the world's oil supply they have eighty one million people which is a surprising number? I was I was quite surprised. By comparison Iraq Iraq has thirty eight million people. Kuwait has four point. Two million people in Saudi Arabia has thirty three million people. So of that oil producing part of the world that produces or has the capability it to produce about twenty percents of the entire global production. The largest by far in fact exceeds the combined population of Iraq Saudi Arabia and Kuwait eight is Iran and as you probably know in November of twenty eighteen the US reintroduce sanctions against Iran which has really crippled their economy. And certainly certainly is no in no large or no small part part of some of what drove the tax over the last month. The attacks over the last three months in the attacks really over the the last year that culminated in the ultimate gonNA call it an assassination of general in more time so Be Be that as is it may what I find really interesting about. Iran is they're currently producing two million barrels a day which is about what their domestic Requirement is just because they're not allowed to export any crude so in terms of their economy. They really have no capability to grow the economy. That's a major major driver in terms of how how Iran might respond. They don't have the financial capability to sustain a war against the world's most wealthy powerful nation with the largest military so so this really brings us to Iraq and and obviously the Iranians have been supporting resistance efforts and militia in Iraq one of the reasons that the general no oh that was was in Baghdad at the time the Iraqis produced four point seven million barrels a day which is You know again. Five percent the issue of the world's supply. And so if you're GONNA see anything breakout in Iran it's likely to be a proxy war through on infrastructure around Iraq The Gulf Four. I remember it because I was in grade seven. I had no idea what a war was. I just knew that the oil price went up and that was good because my dad worked in the energy industry obviously have a very different view that today but I think about the potential ramifications in clearly geopolitical instability in the Middle East is going to drive a a premium to well. What is that dollar? Amount I don't know is at one dollars. A barrel two dollars a barrel five dollars a barrel. But I have to believe that this is going to be very different front than what we saw. In September when the Saudi Arabian facility was attacked and was down for a very brief period of time. I think oil prices aces within a month. We're back below where they were but certainly within two days it was very clear the Saudis we're going to bring production back up to around ten million barrels a day. They have inventory inventory around the world of around one hundred twenty million barrels a day. One hundred twenty million barrels. So there's really no risk to the supply. This in terms of potential tax on infrastructure attacks on facilities attacks in Iraq on five million barrels a day further drones attacks in Saudi Arabian on infrastructure. You may end up with you know one. Two three five million barrels a day potentially at risk and in that scenario I think you definitely see tightness of supply which continues to Dr The price thing. The other thing to think about is right now as you look you know on your typical news report or or website where you get your news. Oil is reported for the February contract month and it closed on Friday at sixty sixty three and change per barrel but when you look to November and December you can see that it Prices trade below sixty dollars a share. The quotes is on Friday. Were below sixty dollars a barrel roughly by August so two to questions that I had that will be answered over the coming. Weeks did the price of oil only go up a dollar or two on Friday Friday because a tremendous number of producers were selling forward barrels and hedging and taking the opportunity to lock in sixty dollar a barrel oil for for the first six seven eight months of the year when they could to guarantee their cash flow and pay down debt. We've talked a lot about the crisis of balance sheets. I think that that's a really essential piece of energy company. Survival is to make sure you lock in cash flow so question number one that I'll be looking for in the queue. Foreign annual reports will be. How much of two thousand twenty production was hedged and how many companies took an opportunity to hedge during the instability that occurred on Thursday and the market opening on Friday thing? The second and uh-huh and related question is is the supply tightness. That's being forecast in the early part of the year. So when you think about backwards backwardation oil prices sixty three dollars a barrel right now by the end of the year oil illustrating at fifty eight. At least that's where the future suggest. So you have a five dollar projected declined through the year. which would be backward as backwardation which which implies you should be producing as many as you can up front because the price is going to fall so your revenue's going to fall? The interesting thing about that is if supplies as tight as they are in my view based on US production declining cop capital starvation in North America limited exploration projects not a ton of were going on in the Gulf of Mexico international growth and then you overlay the political crisis Isis geopolitical crisis in the Middle East. Right now. And you say do you really think that production is going to be the level to satisfy global demand that grows one percent a year and moved from one hundred million barrels a day to one hundred one million barrels next year with all of these things going on that to me is the big question as we move through luke one. I'm looking to see the back end of the oil strip. Come up As you know I am an oil bowl I believe that the supply in the US is coming down and that's going to drive to me. Tightness of supply and when the markets realize that in kind of the February march timeframe. I think that's that's GonNa be the catalyst to drive up the back end of the curve. That's one of the reasons. I'm so optimistic around being able to pay down debt. If you're a good financial company Good Financial Balance Sheet. MP Company in the US right now so that's sort of the the episode today. Iran is a big deal. There's a lot of the people in that region. There's a lot of production coming out of that region. Think that The next two weeks will be very instructive but to me might take away is. This is a very different Geopolitical situation then was this discreet attack on a facility in Saudi Arabia in September and in the tankers through the Strait of Hormuz In June and this has the potential to be a much longer live crisis and based on how the Iranians respond in the coming weeks will drive the geopolitical premium. That's built into oil. Thanks for joining us. Hope you have a great week Until next time find us on HOT TICKET TODAY DOT COM. Subscribe to our email service.

I like to do them all at once because then I just remember to do them I don't have to think about it multiple times during the year and it does mean that that may be like, okay. Go to your ob in your eyes and dentist whatever all at the same time but wake. I find that I don't end up with some of them have different degrees of waiting. So the appointments ended up getting spread out by months. It's just that like the act of making them all. So some people I know like to do that in line with their birthday, which is sometimes what I do, but this year didn't happen because I was like pandemic peak. So yeah, don't forget. You still have time. You still have time make those appointments maybe I should do that too. I'm at least getting to the dentist. That's exciting. And I, specifically asked Laura. If she had any intel on a mammogram because I think you're supposed to get when you're forty which we both are. Awesome. Yeah I think the guidelines in this have have been shifting that it's not necessarily some places do recommend it universally some cases i. you know the broader guidelines that if you don't have a family history or anything that would be concerned than you can wait a little bit and not do it immediately when you're forty in any case I talked about it when I went in you know but I was I was pregnant for much of the time when I turned forty and then now I'm breastfeeding. So that's really not Going to be helpful in terms of screening either so. In my case. Put off for a while but actually that's a really good excuse. I have no familiarity with adult Yeah. You'd think I would have no idea what is recommended for any adult for anything so don't ask me. Let's. All the guidelines sort of change in. Unclear. So but yes, if you are in the market that you should read, this is October Breast Cancer Awareness Month Sarah make sure. That, that mammogram. Though neither Sarah Nor i? Will report back back. All right. It's not going to happen until twenty twenty one because that's when that's when your appointment is. So there you go. All right. Well, on that note, let's let's hear from Dr Urban Alright, I'm so excited to introduce Dr Laura Erdman she is an Obgyn with expertise in well lots of things but especially adult hormones and treatment of Peri Menopausal rate, related conditions including mood issues and everything. So would you like to introduce yourself? Dr Urban Highs Sarah it is my pleasure to speak with everybody today to be on this podcast I. Am an Obgyn physician I practice general obstetrics and gynecology at a community hospital in Maryland. So I see and treat women from their late teen years all the way through until they no longer need a gynecologist through their teenage years the onset of their periods, managing their periods, managing birth control through their childbearing years and today I. Think Specifically, we're going to talk about the challenges that arise when women hit the age of forty and forty going into fifth until they become postmenopausal been at my practice now for. Going on fifteen years at the same place in the same office. So I have patients whom I have known floor fifty years. So I met many of these women when they were in their early to mid twenties, I've seen them get. Help them not period on their honeymoon missing them have their children, and now they're coming to me when they're forty, two, forty, three, forty, four, and life is just changing. So hopefully, we can address some of the common things that happen at this stage and how to stay healthy. Yes Oh, I'm so excited I think this is great and by the way this was requested topic by some of our listeners I think spurred on by some of the discussion that we had about PM and hormones and all that kind of stuff. So. That's exciting and you are mother as well. Yes. I have four children. They are all older. Now I have a son who is a sophomore in college although he's home doing virtual school right now and Msn I'm a little bit happy to have him home again, my next son is a senior in high school with his own set of challenges trying to figure out where to go to college sight unseen, and then I have a set of twin girls who are sophomores in high school. Oh my gosh. So you are not in the empty nest fades yet. That's still like a lot Oh. Yes. Yep. Yep. Yep. It's a very full house at the moment with you know big kids have a different set of challenges. It's nice that they can all get their own breakfast and lunch and I don't have to worry about that and they can certainly do their virtual school by themselves or should be able to but but it's it's a full house and lots of other things to consider plan for and not everybody's driving but then the ones who are driving are really worrisome to. It never stops. You're like, do I want you to drive or do I want you to wait This is a conundrum. It is a big conundrum, but it's overall quite liberating. I will say it's been nice to have an extra driver or two in the family. So cool. Well. Why don't you talk to us I about some of the common complaints and things that you see as women come to you either in their late thirties or early forties? And some of the things you often suggest to help them with it. So one of the main things what one of the things that I tried to to to model my practice around is I've been lucky to have a great pediatricians for my kids over the years and one of the things that I loved about them is that at their annual visit I sort of have gotten over the years. An anticipation of what's to come in their development. So when they were four and I was reminded not to be surprised about nightmares when they were six, make sure everybody knew how to swim and as I've sort of modeled my practice around that so Different Ages. I talked to women about what to expect what's coming, and so pretty much what I'd like to cover when women turn forty is. First of all period irregularities. So periods go wacky at the age of forty for many many many women sometimes they get closer together. Sometimes, they get heavier sometimes stay longer in it's really important to know what is normal versus what is just what is abnormal and could be a sign of something being wrong. So I tried to explain what's going on in the background because that helps a lot of women understand and a lot of. Women whom I see just want to know that everything is okay. They see some changes they don't necessarily they're not bothered by them. They don't necessarily want to treat them are going any medicine. They just want to know that everything is okay. But when you see a change in your period when you've always had a perfectly regular monthly period now all of a sudden is coming every three weeks that might see have normal where actually. Isn't. So it's important to remember that in the background are ovaries are getting better, and so they have a limited life span, which is around forty five to fifty years about the age of fifty or fifty one most famous start the transition into menopause Tomase, your ovaries just stop responding to the input from the rain they start making their Hormuz they stop ovulating but before that they get a little bit lazy and they don't really. Respond they don't really let the brain know too well that they're still doing their job. So your brain starts driving them a little bit harder. The brain doesn't age the brain would like our to keep working for forever. So that signal from the brain gets really really really strong but sometimes array say okay, fine I got it. I'll do my thing and so you get pretty much higher highs and lower lows of your normal hormones. And the cycle links between your periods gets a little bit shorter 'cause ovaries almost working a little bit too well in response to does signal from the brain. So that's why if you've had a period that has always been every twenty eight days and now all of a sudden, it is twenty four days that seems like as almost a week too early, but it's not that's totally fine. That's just the brain responding to that increased influence from the or the ovaries responding to the increased signal from the brain. But also since your hormones are hitting your ovarian hormone estrogen progesterone are hitting higher highs and lows. Things like PMS can become a little bit more exacerbated if you have a much higher progesterone level in that second half of your cycle, some people actually start to feel. The beginning of hot flashes right before their period as your estrogen is hitting alot than it ever has before the period can get a little bit heavier because the lining grows a little bit thicker if that estrogen is high in the beginning of the cycle higher than it has been. So all these things have a reason why they're happening, but they can be really really really bothersome. So these are like higher amplitude screens which were already doing but now they're actually kind of going wider in either direction and potentially at a higher frequency, which is what all of us want right now I'm scared. So. It's really really annoying. Now again, none of this is is is there's nothing wrong. Then this there's note illness there's disease there's nothing wrong but as just really really bothersome and it comes at a time in life where for many women their children are getting older there might be other life changes, just normal body aging into it's more difficult to lose weight the joint start aching a little bit more perhaps there's more responsibility in a job, and so it just hits all together at the very wrong time. I feel like I wonder what the evolutionary purpose of this is although maybe the real answer is well women at that age are kind of. No longer part of natural selection anywhere. It doesn't matter I know how interesting Seem like very, very bad timing. Can you talk more about? Well, actually I have one question and this comes from a little bit of a professional knowledge standpoint that I don't understand maybe you'll know the answer. There will I hear you on progesterone my personal mood issues I know were like my entire second half of a cycle into period and it was it would correlate with like normally like post ovulation was like than the rest of my month was ruined like two three weeks of it. Yeah. Why is that progesterone so bad but then OCP's that can sorry oral contraceptive pills that contain progesterone. Why do those not make us feel? That I have been personally wondering about. So I think that it's the variation, the the progesterone starting to be released when you oscillate peaking and then dropping. And it's not necessarily the steady state of the progesterone like the one that it's in the birth control pills. But rather those wild swings just like some people think that in early pregnancy, the nausea and vomiting doesn't necessarily come from the level of H. CG which is the pregnancy hormone being high because everybody's pregnancy hormone is sky high. It's that rapid increase that swing that goes up and down and there's some evidence for this. I'm probably GONNA get it wrong but in men who I know nothing about medically. But some men with certain prostate artistic. Your cancers also have these wild hormonal fluctuations and they also have a syndrome that's very similar to nausea vomiting of pregnancy, and it's probably the shift, not necessarily the level. So the beauty of birth control pills is that your hormones are steady every single day you say the exact same level of Hormuz? There is no up and down no fluctuation no adjusting to anything. But some people do notice from the progesterone in birth control pills that does make them moodier and that it does trigger acne. So those that progesterone in the pill can still have its progesterone like effects in the body, but it doesn't do that to everybody. Okay we're GONNA take a very quick break and then more into the different treatment options and have lots more questions for you.

I was again struggling to balance my professional. Life and making my son something healthy in my personal life, and then I decided I can solve this. So I put together a team and we created astronauts an easy balanced meal for working parents to give their kids are team seems mismatched in different time zones with working styles.

That's our project manager. I gotta go by try dropbox for your team free for thirty days at DROPBOX DOT com slash teams at work. All right we are back and we were just talking about progesterone and I know from my own expertise that there are just that are more or less Andrew Genyk in their effects. So I would think that that might make some impact on whether you might see things like acne can you talk about? Well, two things number one if a woman for some reason doesn't want to go on hormonal treatments but experiencing these wild swings, are there other things that they can do or quote unquote natural methods is something that people ask me about a lot And Yeah I guess just go through and what are the hormonal options. So kind of the non-hormonal things and then the hormonal things that you might do potentially alter some of these swings if they are bothering you in that way. one of the most effective non-hormonal options is the anticipation. So if you have a humongous proponent in almost require my patients to track the periods, and if you know that you every week before you're going to get your period are going to be cranky and tired and hungry for food that is not good for you will maybe that is the week that you don't plan to go to the new restaurant or you don't plan to go to. Stan movie where you're GONNA eat too much popcorn. Maybe that's the way that you don't schedule your big meeting that you could probably do the week after as so that anticipation can go a very, very, very long way if there's a difficult conversation that you wanted to have with your boss or with your children or with your with your spouse again, push it a week. Later you know you're coming up on your bad week. So that is extremely helpful. There is not much in the way of natural supplements or herbals that has been shown to help people try all kinds of things and they feel better which is great. If that's what helps for you I honestly think that it comes back to the trucking in the knowing when it's coming and that's when they take their supplements and they feel better. But I think it's the anticipation of knowing what's coming. In terms of non-hormonal treatment, we have mostly relied on antidepressant medications the whole category of selective Serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which are like your flu Ocsta- Tina, search elaine, which are very, very common for the treatment of depression and anxiety and many women are on there already. So a reminder that are helping with their symptoms already is really useful for women who don't have depression or anxiety who don't normally take these medicines. It's really cool that this can be taken two weeks. Only for the two weeks before the period. So again, here's a period. Trucking comes an extraordinarily helpful because you need to know when to start it. So you stop taking your pillow when you get your period and then you need to start it down the road when it's going to be two weeks before your period. So you're period the to have of your period. The first half is leading up to ovulation. The second half is after you've obviated, the second has much much. Much more consistent than the first half. So once you obviate the second half pretty much lasts two weeks for everybody is the first half that's really variable. So when you track your period, if you have a twenty eight day cycle, you start this medication on day fourteen, two weeks before you're gonNA get your period. But if you have a twenty four day cycle, you're GONNA have to start it on day ten after you've got your period if you're getting period every thirty. Five days, you can start it a little bit later the wonderful thing about taking this medication this way is that it avoids a lot of the side effects like a decrease in your sex drive and the weight gain that comes with them. Why they work nobody really knows because you're supposed to be on him for like six weeks before his impact on but they do work really really really well, and also had a very low does it's difficult to remember to take them. But they do help. It's interesting that there is one that we use for postmenopausal women in a super low dose for the treatment of hot flashes also. And that is on paroxetine will do that and it comes even marketed that way. So they're doing something at the level of the brain. We just don't understand it perfectly well, but that is a nice alternative for a lot of women. I remember when I learned that I was like well, that goes against everything I learned days And there are studies and I think certainly is like the first line because. Shorter acting, but you're right it like shouldn't work but it apparently, but it does but it does and there's so much data confirming it because nobody believed it. So whoever thought of it I don't know but his brilliant. Not and then birth control pills. So it's a shame that they're called birth control pills because really they are Hermano medications that have. So many beneficial side of so many beneficial effects. They're not even side effects. I would even consider the contraception aside effect of all the goodness that they do they come with their risk they're not for everybody. This is something to be discussed with your own doctor. If you're at high risk of heart disease, if you have a family history of heart disease, if you're overweight if you're a smoker if you have high blood pressure than probably not the best choice for somebody. For. A woman who is at a healthy way exercises who has no other medical problems it they can just be life changing they shut down the over completely. So you're void these wild swings of Herman's going up and dash they give you predictability give a steady state. There are certain pills that have certain ingredients and the are the same. They'll have estrogen and progesterone in them. They just differ by the type of progesterone. So when you search around from pill to pills, just trying to find a gesture that agrees with you the best and some professors are really really good and have been shown to trait pms really well to be really good for acne. One long-term benefit of being on birth control pill for five years or more is that your risk of ovarian cancer in the future will go down there really good for your Bowen was most of us are starting to have a little bit of decline and our bone density after the twenty. Really. So having adequate estrogen that was in exercising to keep our from deteriorating up too much before we get into menopause, but it just makes life predictable you. Also really don't ever need to have a period and so if you wanted to skip over the sugar pills and just never have a period, you might have some random bleeding here or there, but it's going to be really light. There's absolutely no purpose in having a period when you're on a birth control pill that makes life really manageable. A lot of women in their forties again have a period heaviness and cramping as the pill can help manage that. And another question that I, hear is women who come to me who other upside or their husband has had of a sesame. They don't need birth control and they think they can't be on birth control pill and again that is such a misconception. So call them hormone pills. I also call them while. So for for me, it's very different angle. It's usually that I'm trying to treat a fourteen year old with us or something, and if I tell the parents that were going to go on a birth control, they will flip over and die. So I say, yes, these are marketed as birth control, but we're just using it as a hormone replacement supplement. Never ever calling them birth control pills. Now I have to say I have a couple of comments but we said and I love everything you said first of all, I feel very vindicated my choice to take one again because I didn't realize people benefit was so strong and I do have ovarian cancer as well as osteoporosis in my family. So Gay Times too, and then the other thing I will say is about the skipping I will I'll just say personally I have tried that and I cannot make it terribly long without having a lot of spotting. So I guess your mileage may vary on that one. It probably just depends on the person and their uterus and God knows. Very much. So so there are pills birth control pills that are marketed. Where you only get period four times a year. That's not by accident. So when we put somebody on those birth control pills, we tell them give it six months. So give it until the second package to make sure that you're not spotting all the time. The first time that you try to skip over your period by the time we get to about I think it's at seven weeks or so about fifty percent of women will start spotty. So few just take a four day break and seven days of sugar pills is a little bit too long for days is ideal. So you just take a four day break. Let Yourself. Have a little period then and then go back on it again, the next time by it's about nine to twelve weeks that fifty percent of women started spotting, take a little break and then it's really hard to make it past sixteen weeks for two to sixteen weeks. It's very difficult to make a past that point without having some spotty. That's why those pills are marketed. That way they could have picked a period twice a year that could have picked period three a year but people would hate it because at the very end of each pack, almost more than half of people would have been spotting. So that's why they picked a twelve week break and that is so interesting to know that the longer you're on I guess because you're lining. Thins the more more lucky may have with stretching it out. So okay, that's very, very useful information. Now, one thing I know our listeners are going to be curious about is, what's the Max Age that you can take birth control pills? Is there a expiration? Is it like your brain will explode second? You take a pill in your forty five or like you know what's When do you have to stop in and then what could you potentially switch to I was hoping for that question. So one of the other goals of being on a low dose birth control pill in your forties to completely avoid the craziness of the transition into menopause let that happen the background. So menopause is is the transition that happens when you're over a stop working and it is the exact same thing as puberty, but in reverse. But culturally, we have no patience for Peri menopausal women. So I. Have Daughters who are fifteen years old and so from the age of like eleven until now boy are we patient with them and they can screaming Al and they can bang doors and a week later they're perfectly normal beautiful human beings again, and we don't think anything of it. We call them teenagers we call it puberty were kind to them. We give them a lot of leeway but I am about to turn fifty years old and if I lose my temper I'm a bad mother I had a difficult day at work I need more sleep and this shouldn't happen and so that is really Something that culturally we need to get better at but. When you are on a low dose birth control pill. Again, you're Hamas are steady state your over in the background are still going through their aging process and getting ready not to work. So for somebody again, who's healthy with no risk factors for heart disease while I do in my practice is when the women just to be fifty years old, I'll ask her to go off of her pill and I'll send her to the lab to check the hormone that the brain makes that drives the ovaries. If the ovaries aren't working in sending a signal back, that's going to be sky high. That's called an H. level so you've gotta be. Off Your pills for a little while like three six weeks. Go check enough as h level. If it sky high in through the roof that means you've completed the transition into menopause, you have no clue that it happened and you're done no period irregularities you probably didn't feel any hot flashes. You probably had no surprises with your period and these mood variations. If you have this h level isn't in that range yet, you can go right back on your pill and we'll check again in a year. So I took it fifty, one, fifty, two, by fifty, three, fifty, four I get a little bit nervous keeping people on the birth control pill. But. Usually by then most people have transitioned into menopause or they just don't want to be on it anymore. So then. And if you're not feeling too well and then all of menopause heads and you can't sleep and you're having hot flashes and you have joint deafness and you can't get out of bed in the morning. Then we can talk about going on hormone replacement therapy. So that is not for everybody but Health Initiative study from twenty years ago has really been teased out. So people women in their fifties can't go on hormone replacement therapy very safely. Right at the transition into menopause for short course like two to five years. So eventually, you do have to come off it without increasing their risk of breast cancer. Those heart disease risks are always there because that's what these Harman's do but you don't. have to worry about a risk, an increase in the risk of breast cancer in the only difference between a birth control pill and hormone replacement therapy is the dose level. They are the exact same medicine, but a birth control pill is about eight to ten times higher dose than what you need. So if you did well birth control pill, now you're in menopause you can just think of it as a dose adjustment but I don't WanNa give you ten times as much medicine as you need. No that totally makes sense and then you could be gradually come to us the over the next decade or. Whenever safe to do snow depending on risk factors. So once you have been on it for a few years, especially as are approaching sixty I'll tell them you've got to stop, and usually all we win it off over the course of six months because if you stopped them abruptly, you'll have this hot flash says you feel too good but there are a lot of different ways of cutting back little by little in a way that takes. Six months, and again, if we think about that theory of the drastic changes, if we don't do it drastically, we do it little by little. Your body slowly gets adjusted to slightly little bit lower level of estrogen as time goes on and then I mean eighty year old women don't have hot flashes anymore because their bodies used to they're very low estrogen level. So you just want to do it slowly as your body adjusts to that new. That makes sense. Well, that was super super helpful. I think that people are going to. Feel Very. Educated after this episode as to some of the underlying physiology of why we feel certain ways as well as some of the available modalities for treatment. So I thought that was really really helpful. What do you? What do you have? I know that one very common complaint in Peri Menopause in is something that you mentioned, which is issues with weight and body changes. What do you tell your patients about that or you know what advice do you typically give them I think that one is the toughest one because all the birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy in the world. Is Not going to help with weight especially with the redistribution of your weight over to across your Middle Amazon women were used to couple pounds over our ideal way. It's all in our is in our hips and it's really easy to in two weeks eat really well exercise a little bit more and we get right back into our address. Now, all of a sudden, it comes into the middle and I think that is a huge challenge that has to do with the pathway that our body now uses to metabolize our food. A really beneficial PAPPA is up regulated by estrogen his. Estrogen levels start dropping another. The replacement in the world isn't going to help it. It goes down a different path, which is more similar to men, and so we end up with like the analogous of a beer belly, which is really annoying. It's the time to really be. Conscious about what we`re I think especially for women who are lucky enough to never have to worry about their weight. They've always been able to eat whatever they want head and that's not necessarily a healthy way of eating. So paying attention having a majority of vegetables, limiting your carbs to a quarter of your total meal intake staying well hydrated and most importantly staying active and it doesn't have to be anything fancy walking for thirty minutes. Five Times a week is going to be. Probably Enough Morris better. You've gotta work on your strength. You've got to work on your balance you've got to work on your flexability. Those are all things to keep you healthy as well, but it's just a matter of. Watching, your food intake making really healthy choices. Now, if you never had to before and also some of it, you can't do anything about and just accepting that this is how it's going to be. It doesn't have to be bad. You can manage it but you're never going to have the body that you did what you were thirty. I think you know we have to at some point acknowledged that our bodies are only going to age in one direction they are. Will ask me. Well, if I take hormone replacement therapy, will my wrinkles go away? No, that's another one that's not going to change either. But again, sunscreen moisturizer getting enough sleep drinking enough water you can do a lot to make them not horrible. Botox. Sorry. Anyway. So well, okay. This has been fantastic. Is there anything else you would add to as advice where listeners or anything that we didn't cover with respect to hormones or getting older or peri menopause or or anything Matt only other little plug that I love for women who don't want to be on hormones whose main problem is just period bleeding as to remember to consider an IUD, they're super save they can last for six years. Now, the really good ones that make your period very light or non existent and I don't know if it's urban legend or not. But. If, you go to obgyn conference says most of us who are in attendance are women and informal polls of the audience have showed that about eighty to ninety percent of those in attendance at one of these protests and containing IUD's just because it makes your period really light or non-existent makes really easy to live with. So I'm a big proponent of those to do suppress. In women too. So you may not fight right some some proportion it's not it's not super predictable but for women who are afraid who don't any hormones that all the the such low dose and it stays just within the uterus only really the amount of progesterone circulating in the rest of your body is almost none. So this stomach side effects are very, very low. I did have copper for some years and let me tell you I'm glad. I, don't have it anymore. Yeah. Yeah. Those are they're they're great at preventing a pregnancy, but they're not so good for your period. Do its did his job very nicely to prevent pregnancy. So I'm great I'm grateful for that, and let's remind our forty year old and forty one and forty two et cetera listeners that you can get pregnant and dot exempt from needing birth control or if you do not want to continue to extend your family. So to remember to talk your Obgyn and not just assume that once you were at a certain point that is not going to. Surprise babies happened all the time. Yes and sometimes that's welcoming. Wonderful. But just make sure that you've thought about that. Okay. So one thing we do before we sign off as we always share our love of the week I will go first to give you a chance to make sure you have yours and mine you already do. But anyway mine is. So you guys know I talked about the baby sitters club and my love for the Netflix series as well as the book series when I was kid and the Comic Book Series Still Exists Now and my daughter likes those to. The author of a series called the startup squad reached out to me. The startup squad he called is like the baby sitters club of the modern age, and it's a series book with a group of four girls that are are getting startups and he was right. My daughter was super super into them. They said, she loved how the girls had all different backgrounds and. All different kinds of ideas and so if you have kind of like an eight year old ten year old maybe even like eleven who is into series books and want some inspirational reading that's still really fun. You should check out startup squad and the authors names are Brian WICE Feld and Nicole here that's my love of the week this week Oh. That sounds awesome. Very, very cool and so modern to. Yes while I thought long and hard about this and my my love of the weakest kind of my love of my career and it's an APP for your phone. That's a period tracker that's called clue. There are a bazillion different apps out there, but I will give a shout out to this one. It was developed by a bunch of physicians over in Europe. There's some big health award that's given in Europe to like the most innovative physician or development and of several years ago this APP won that award. So it's very well maintained the information that you can get from it as super reliable it's free and you can track absolutely everything. Often people think of using a period tracker to see when they're gonNA ovulate when they want to get pregnant but you can use. It as the opposite. So as a natural family planning if you want to, but it has almost every single pms symptom listed and you can list your own and so it's really helpful I. Think it's really helpful to to women in general from me for their physicians. Extremely helpful. So and somebody causes my period is irregular. I asked them to pull out their APP and read it off to me, and then I can tell them it is right. Isn't. So it's it's a good habit to get into an can help avoid a lot of worry and a lot of. As time goes on and it's free so it's nice to have. That is awesome. I will admit I tell my patients to track but I don't give them a specific wreck but now I will and I'm going to check it out my child so good about clue. Well. Thank you so much for being on the show. This was fantastic. So informative I, think that a lot of people are GONNA get a lot out of it. Where can they find you if you have social media if they have any other things to ask her accolades to give I do my practice is a small practice in suburban Maryland, it's called It used to be called Charles Street Obgyn, and so our website is W. W. W. Dot C. S. obgyn dot com. I will admit that it's my younger partner who maintains our facebook page and I believe that we do have linked to it from our website. So awesome facebook. See US Obgyn, Charles Street Obgyn. and. So yet when suburban Baltimore? So if you're in the area, it would be lovely. Yes, you're going to get. Very. Cool Oh that's wonderful. All right. We'll. We'll have to look for you. There I'll maybe I'll convince you to start an instagram handle by the time this airs and we can link to you there as well. Thank you so much for being on and have a wonderful day. Thank you. It was my pleasure in hopefully a little bit useful for for women as they navigate their forties and stay healthy. It will be. All Right? Yes. So that was great. Thank you, Sarah So this question comes from a listener who says that she has been listening to off the clock tidying up in the kitchen. So Gold Star for listening to my books while multitasking while her husband was putting the kids to bed and she was contemplating opportunities to linger, and soon after she was cooking her fiercely independent two and a half year old son to go to the potty fundraising teddy climb into bed during this frustrating process was acutely aware of how many times she was saying quickly. She's always been conscious of how she speaks to her kids but the note signed seeing that the more impatient she wants to get into bed the would resist. She's keen to get on top of her quickly habit. The obvious solution is to start bedtime early. So there's less need to rush, but she says in a practical sense, there will always be times in life when I do need to keep things moving for various reasons and I hope the kids can learn to respect that. So I started thinking about how I talk about time in general and she is curious about how we talk to our kids about time thinking about how they spend it the responsibility to others in terms of punctuality respecting other people's time choices I'm. So what do we do to talk to our kids about time? A mostly GONNA leave this one to you. I don't feel like I have mastered at all. I will say there's certainly a countdown timer leaving for school cameron we have to leave in six minutes camera we have to leave in. Et CETERA. But. No I don't have grants I will say I I enjoy Annabel and I. Some has will sit down with our planners and I think using planner is a great way to get a little bit of a grasp on you know what time you have available on how you might like to use that but alleged do planning I'm curious what is she putting in her planner? Then you'll plan her entire day she'll be like check boxes. Check. Box Eat. Breakfast Tech. I'm like, Oh, I learned from. Mommy. Really, cute yeah. Plans for next year coach has her own So we've talked about like, what are you gonNA. Put in there. I need to help her with the weekly spreads dessert. Sure, we could all use her help with our weekly spreads exciting for animal that she has. Professional consultation options in in her own home and so young. Yeah I think talking to children about time is. Just an interesting concept, a little kids have very limited concept of time in general. They are very much in the present and that's fine That's what they are. That's obviously challenging when you need to move them from the present to something that is happening in the future and I know that one of the things during this pandemic that has been sort of. You know. Easier in many ways from a people's, there's less of that rushing to get to some time specific thing. That you know if baseball canceled gymnastics is canceled schools. There's no rushing to get in the car for anything and in some ways that makes life a lot more relaxing even if it introduces for different challenges as well. So you know always being like the countdown, the NSA we've decided that we wanted to go do this and you know you're going to have fun doing this and so in. I'm giving you a five minute warning and so then they can. They're not yanked out of whatever fun thing they were absorbed in quite. So immediately talking with little kids obviously. Setting routines like I. We do this than we do this, you know I, we eat breakfast, and then we brush our teeth and then we put our shoes on and then we get in the car or at night first week try the bathroom than we wash our face in whatever like just do they understand how one thing happens after another I think. As kids get a little bit older, you can start introducing the idea more of thinking about the future and sort of planning your process toward that. You know certainly of kids start getting weekly assignments. That's a really good opportunity like, Oh, well, your teacher wants you to have it on Friday when would you like to do it and let them consider The various options in if they want to do it, Friday morning I mean you can let them try why not? Right like let them figure it out that there are than rushing coming in late bedraggled I mean this is a learning experience that then helps them as they get two grades where it actually matters more that you can map out your time. For things that happen in the future you know against smaller children talking about how many sleeps there are. Until we leave for that trip on, they wanNA know what they can expect in the future actually for my eldest for Jasper we've had a lot of conversations about not wishing time away like sometimes he's very much like I can't wait till this or I. Only eight more days until we're GONNA, do this as well. Yes. That's true and we are looking forward to this and in eight days but there could be fun stuff in this upcoming eight days and we don't want to necessarily lose sight of that in our rush to get to this thing. So that's that's one of the things have been been trying to. Talk about. You. Know I think time management something everyone has to learn for themselves. I mean you can offer guidance and help kids learn to think about how they sink through their time and how much time stuff is probably gonNA. Take taken when they probably can get to it. But until you are in charge of your own time, fully it's it's sort of hard to absorb many of these lessons and many adults are not good at them. No, that's our. Not Saying that adults learn them either. So there you go but. I I agree that yeah. We spend a lot of time often yelling at kids to hurry it up and it might be good to think about that as as we did. All right. Well, this has been best of both worlds. Sarah has interviewed a doctor, Laura Erdman and Obgyn, and we will be back next week with more on making work in life together.

I really liked those weird. I'm more or less like Horror Gore and more horror like psychological weirdness definitely oh it's weird yeah. I can't look at trees the same now oh yeah no or anything in nature really so nature. It's okay it's like some pagan like Colt thing so it takes place all during the daytime which is crazy for a horror movie right well. Yeah it's wild anyway. That's my story went up at the comedy store. Yesterday that was fun and that's all as a door guy. Dana Gould Yep did did ma five minutes and he mentioned he liked one of your jokes twice. Yes he was very nice man. He also <hes> Yeah Yeah. He's Hilarious so yeah. What about you Lisa? I went to COMECON that was cool. Oh yeah that's in town this weekend here. We go yeah big thing Yep. A lot of a lot of people dressed up. I remember one time I was working at the hard rock hotel which is right in the middle of it like an and there's just thousands thousands and thousands hundreds of thousands of people walking the streets in costumes and really really good 'cause play and there was a like a convention in from Kansas City like business guys like dentists or something. I don't know they sell dental equipment or whatever I can't even remember they're all standing out front in their suits suits and all these people and costumer welcome by what is happening and I'd like to Saturday man. This is just San Diego Yeah. It's just how we are welcome until your friends in Kansas and his great to imagine someone coming over here for the first time to San Diego just being completely chinaware what is happening Yeah Hammer tambor's joke about because he's an immigrant right he gets here as a boy from Egypt and the first night there here is Halloween so all these people are knocking on its door dressed as monsters and he's like. Why did we come here? He's so funny yeah. I dressed as the Miller report actually Oh night yeah just wore my black and white striped dress and just tape the Miller report on the front and someone's picture yes shit. That's funny redaction dress perfect dress for that you should have. I've had a cager Andrew. You're carrying call them the William Bars Oh that's elaborate. I like that. It's a lot to disbar yeah. That'd be funny license plate if you really cared that much the thought about where about it. We have a lot of news to cover this week so let's hit the high notes hot notes all right so a story dropped in the Washington Post about Jeffrey Epstein Lines Sweet Jail Deal Palm Beach County in Palm Beach Florida and how a supervisor at the jail who works for the Sheriff wrote a memo saying that Epstein was poorly versed in jail routine and his adjustment to incarceration would be atypical so oh he authorized this Guy Supervisor Authorized Epstein cell door be left unlocked so that he could watch T._v. in attorney room whenever he wanted they installed the T._v. for him by the way <hes> rough rough rough jail days and six days a week he was allowed out for twelve hours a day to work in his office but even beyond that he was allowed to hang out in his mansion on at least nine occasions without supervision and one time he was left unattended for four hours in his mansion so the Palm Beach County Sheriff now. I guess his name is Brick Bradshaw. He was a sheriff back then to him. Yeah he's been there for a while and I think it's the same deputy to. I'd have to look into it but he announced that he'll be investigating the actions of Deputies assigned to monitor Epstein so I guess he's investigating the actions of himself and his staff at the time because like if I read it correctly like Jeffrey Epstein they had to wear suits his yeah they weren't like atypical guards yeah they were in suits and one of his drivers was he was a Russian guy named Eagle or and he was like a mixed martial artist and so these were not typical dudes these were like hand picked for Epstein and he paid over one hundred twenty eight thousand dollars dollars just to have this privilege of having these guards follow him to where he went instead of being guarded at the prison like a regular fucking inmate. He's living in a mob 'cause play totally Maho. You've thought so true. Apparently a lot of female visitors came and according I think one of his former lawyers his name is Edward. He said that these women would come into Jeffrey's office thinking they were going to talk to him about something business like and then they would be manipulated into sexual encounters while he's serving his sentence so it was like he was he just kept during this this power move with people and I wonder who those women are and if they would ever come forward because this is his former lawyer saying this wow yeah I mean it makes while he's in jail for child rape. Basically they charged him with prostitution which I don't understand how somebody under eighteen can be considered prostitute but okay victim blaming much. He's jail quote unquote and while he's on this release. He's doing what he's in jail for his attorney. He said he was definitely having having sexual encounters with female visitors they didn't specify what age but it did seem like he was coercing these women one way or another and he was doing this at this like foundation. He built some nonprofit job foundation that he built. That's where he spent his office time so they come. It's every day I find a new reason to nachos. nonprofits seriously fucking sucks. What is his charity just charity for Epstein helped me <hes> give gene and yeah there's some good ones out there but it's just like so easy to exploit for sure of corruption and stuff I mean look at the trump foundation and yeah from what you were talking about? I think those guards were like more like security to protect him guard him from doing yeah and and their eagle rhyme the Russian name ego or like that was very interesting like Jordan. They were saying <hes> off the air that that it's very interesting that Epstein had a Russian guy guarding. In Him with a very Russian name wearing a suit and this is all unusual to the prison standards like normal inmates. Don't get this treatment let alone some Russian mixed martial arts no offense to Russian mixed martial arts people but just because Epstein scientists tied up and we're the Mueller investigation all his people know Russians. I'm just like hey why is he being protected by these guys instead of regular guards yeah and what was he doing it as mansion just hanging out yeah. It's all about him like he's a dog now when he was left unattended for four hundred right yeah in one of the guards asked him a corner. He wasn't the Ebor Guy. It's probably regular American do but he was like I was unclear about my job and when they clarify it they said you're there to protect him. These guards I mean I guess guards are supposed to protect inmates but they need to call him inmate. They always they were supposed to call him. Jeffrey all of the guards referred to him as Jeffrey Yeah and they're supposed to call an inmate Epstein Jeffrey first-name basis whole thing seems very arranged attached versed in jail routines true and you know you said isn't that the fucking point of jail like <hes>. have it suck yeah. It's a punishment I think <hes> but at the same time the rest of US yeah it's just I don't know I think it's crazy how they tried to use the argument that they have to jump through hoops because of his privilege and they were like people are saying that you know we got leniency but no we had to work harder because but that's what privileged thinks oppression is any kind of hoop. He's gotta fill out paperwork and they probably like this is crazy. You know yeah with my ipad and I didn't. I read something like they were like. Oh we'll actually he had a lot more problems because of his wealth yeah. That's awesome guy working for him was saying Yeah Oh yeah poor bore Epstein yeah but that's what it's like when you have heavy sociopaths with so much power as they really feel like victims through and through and you can't change their mind you can only lock them up forever which will do yeah and that's why I don't get some of these laws that require you to have willful and knowing knowingly like no. You're breaking the law. These guys don't fucking in any format so am I going to apply it or remember it or anything out of it. Their entire lives basically it applies to them so how could they possibly have knowledge that they're breaking the law when they don't think it applies to everything from like sorry no I was Gonna say he spent his whole life like you. Were saying doing this yeah and like people just starting out with just getting your D. You is sort of you know taking taking care of not needing to go through the justice as some stuff like that and you just yeah I imagine just doing stuff over <unk> over game because you keep known more people may get more money and Guinness kinds of Americans they talk about. It's got to be white collar and blue collar because that seems to be the dividing line not even necessarily racial. It's like if you're poor. You're not GonNa get away with any of this. If you're rich like this guy is the limit you know when you do go to jail you you get to go home twelve hours a day and keep cramming yes insanity. It's so <hes> what do you think he's going to do. What do you think he's in there for like these guys would drive him to his mansion or his office and they would park outside hi and they'd be like I didn't go inside but I saw who inside and it's like? Why did you just let this happen? You're supposed to be a guard what the fuck and why is the sheriff. Who did that investigating this yes? This is all weird Pollard yeah. Maybe you could be like a Deutsche Bank thing sort of where they're trying to clean their hands of having any sort of connections with Donald Trump. I don't know what those guys were doing but we wouldn't have given him alone all right but you're the head of the organization and he did so yeah yeah like Oh. This is <hes> <hes> you know. This is horrible that he was treated so well. I'm going to look into this that I was in charge of. What are you even very high? I don't know maybe that's not a high profile case at the time but I'm pretty sure that's that's awful to imagine that that would just be a drop in the bucket. Uh of a bunch of sex crimes that having but maybe it was like that so it truly does just under the rug which is grotesque yeah and the judge is not a fan either if you can if you can be unbiased in these situations but he basically <hes> <hes> he's like no you don't get out on bail right. It's probably more likely they're just facing so much public pressure exactly Miami Herald killing it and they're finally being treated the way they should have but this is an old man. This is why when I think of trump to it's like whatever kind of retribution or justice we gotta this. He still lived his whole life bigness person. He's towards the what sixty six or something yeah so. It's like so much damage already done so much so it's really about making a statement for the next fuckers you know but yeah I hope he goes down to obviously go down absolutely an and I think that's one of the main differences between like us. Trump supporters is Bill Clinton goes down. We aren't going to try to defend him but if trump is connected they'll try to defend core. Like how many times have we ever brought up Schneiderman after he got ousted this because you did some gross shit and now you're gone and that's it and we're not sitting here dwelling on how it was like some anti state writing we call for Al Franken's resignation and the Republicans nominated a child rapist to be a senator not somebody who listeners are actually critical that US which I understand their frustration they are saying that we were talking about Al <hes> for the photograph and they you know listener. I made a good case about how the worst thing that Al did might have been apologizing for something that made it seem like he did more because it seems like in the photograph that they're referring to like supposedly he's not touching her and like I think if he did something then yes it was a joke but yeah I was a bit right and and you know I e exactly but I think my point is is to say that we don't come down on people for either me too stuff for child pornography. Whatever it is is is just so backwards and so wrong exactly and the fact that ready to replace him like you said someone that was like worse? It's like it's a really delicate dance like in this case I think they should go down across the board but there are some cases whereas Liberal Party it doesn't flicked sometimes more damage because how hypocritical the other party is just undo all the justice. We're trying to do by replacing them with someone like that so I wasn't well. I wasn't insinuating. I'm sorry if I miscommunicated this that Roy Moore didn't replace Alfred. I'm just urged him to be. We got rid of Al Franken for a joke doc and they ran a pedophile and they're running again continues. Yes thank you for the clarification because you're still stands yeah yeah they replaced him with a female Roy will not replace. Can you imagine a bunch of his potential constituents just sitting there praying for him to win the election yeah well. I mean some of them believed the accusations cost him. Yeah believes that I've just saying right right. I mean that has to happen because his base supported him even after admitting that maybe there's some truth to the allegations but they said they would rather support him because to have another person in the office. That's going to be pro abortion pro choice. That's is to use what's worse for them. Yeah then their kids being and maybe they are ineffective but this is so much bigger. It's it's they're contributing to rape culture in a negative way by thinking that they're saving the moral value of something else. It's like it's just my daughter. Just don't kill the fetus but of course they wouldn't actually say you can read my daughter but I'm like how do you not see that this is encouraging of that behavior and your child could be affected by living in this fucked up world early sanctioning it right yeah yeah and in their minds to they just they. They've done their own religious. Just moral cost benefit analysis on this guy being a frigging teenage Kid yes sex R Kelly. His music is so good and he's a black powerful man so I was going to lean into that instead of the fact that he's damaging the lives of young women. Yeah that's just they really weighing out the you know bad with the worse and I say fuck it all right yeah no. That's what got them into this situation but yeah it's like. It's is not a joke like dude. You're single. You can have sex with whoever you want. He's like no no that would be yeah. It's it's a crazy world hashtag not all people but there's a lot of people out there. For Real I know I watch a lot of forensic files and how are their nineteen seasons with thirty four episodes of peace. There just fucked up. I hate that show watching a bit of it and you're like dude. I stayed awake in bed for like an hour and a half. I had to tell L. myself like okay Jordan. It's okay to process that people get murdered. Just sit there and just accept it to be one of the worst ones I've ever seen off L. Escape. That's fucking awful yeah. That was pretty bad. <hes> sorry okay. Arts community entity gives us good for me yeah yeah. There's you know we gotta get people. I do love our community. If you're a patriot and you're in the closed facebook group it is the coolest group of people and and if you're not just people are just like only facebook and I respect that but I'll see on twitter on the flip side but the cooling is if you ever need anything. There's somebody in that group. That's an expert at it like it's a great. It's not just like a cool like group like minded people that good networking working yeah. What was that slogan together? We know everything together. We know every ten and we'll get it right eventually. DIG It so Jerry Nadler. He's the what is he the House Judiciary Chair. He's asking for clarification on hope Hicks testimony because a bunch of Michael Cohen documents warrants were unredacted. They removed the black bars because the judges like well. If you're shutting down this investigation I'm releasing their to the public not cool and he didn't say this isn't cool but I felt like that was his feeling right. I'm <unk>. I'm assigning bias to a judge. That's bad but yeah so Nadler is like well and that if that's the case because hope Hicks in her testimony besides saying I have blanket immunity or absolute immunity one hundred fifty five times besides that she actually did say that she was was not present during conversations between Cohen and trump or or about any present present for any conversation about the hush money payments and the these records these search warrants tell a different story she was on the phone and part of these conversations nations in texts and emails and I think she's going to be able to get off on a technicality just like Jeff sessions. Did we're Jeff Sessions said I thought you were asking me not just if I had any contact with Russians I've out you're asking me if I was discussing sanctions and colluding being in talking about election interference with Russians. That's what I thought you meant and unfortunately when she asked the question she asked if she was present during any of those conversations and hope Hicks is probably going to be able to say I wasn't present. I was on the phone exactly yeah surprised if now they wanted me in a criminal referral yeah <hes> and because then you can ask her the follow up question alright. Were you on the phone for any of those conversations and would you mind telling us what you talked about right right now. We know you had him. It's a matter of public record and I feel select the judiciary knew this. They knew what was behind those reductions because when she asked Ripley asked she was like. Are you sure you're telling me that you weren't pregnant friend. WHO's cover? Are you sure think about your answer. You know she yes like she knew and so I I think they had access to this unless you're some like crazy mind game. They do ask that a lot. Totally the do ask like are your shirt. Do you assure you want to say that. I don't know lease background Bush Dino. She's a prosecutor cuter in her background. I don't know I don't think so. I'd have to look it up but I don't think so but I mean it was a great line of questioning definitely joe go easy on her because she's High Lake. Let her be hot Felon Bay. She can still be hot yeah. They exist modeling contract contractor. They get out like yeah. Put Her in there but I hope they don't like get blinded by like that at all. Your hotness hot fill in Bay is the Swimming Pool Epstein demanded he have access to that makes his writer this hard firm Bain Nice Underage Lady Lagoon. Oh so gross liberations are fun though I mean if you're GonNa if you <hes> so there's a a new asylum rule that's being piloted in two locations on along the Rio Grande Right <hes> and <hes> I guess they're what they're saying Jordan. What are they saying? What's this new rule? Yes so mark Morgan is one that was coming out and talking about it. He's acting customs and Border Protection Commissioner. He came in on Thursday and he said that this new rule is in the piloting phase. Although there's no reports from people that actually work in asylum saying that they've been seeing it being piloted loaded but what is supposed to do so. It's a rule that's coming out of the departments of Justice and Homeland Security and with limited exceptions is supposed to prohibit migrants who have resided or quote transited enroute unquote to <hes> any third country from seeking asylum in the U._S.. So basically it sounds like anyone that's coming from a country that does not directly border the United States essentially so we're going to accept desailly's from Canada and Mexico e yeah. That's that's what it sounds like. It doesn't doesn't go very much into the logistics of that or like if someone I don't know flies over here from another country or something or like I don't it doesn't go into all those details but <hes> essentially they're saying that they're trying to do this to dramatically dramatically like it sure amass typically new word pointing pointing at her mouth and surprised that came out of it doesn't just went so rogue difficult ethically it just blows off mouth is attached to the brain. We're very credible reporters here. <hes> trump wouldn't even stop to correct himself word now deal with it true and then fucking because everything's fucked it would be in Webster Lake like two years right next to Hella and selfish exactly dramatically. I don't even whatever so it's supposed to lower lower. The number of migrants that they're seeing at the border across the board is what they're saying is the goal of this <hes> but obviously it is targeting a very specific region of people that asylum-seeking rights essentially would just be taken away and and I assume that makes it then illegal by this declaration to come here and present yourself for asylum from Honduras for example. I don't know if it would be illegal legal there if they would just say no. I think it would just be no but Ozo- because I'm afraid that that would be their reason for detention. You know right. Yeah I mean. A._C._L._U.'s already just like waiting for this to start you know so they can sue in court yeah. I'm sure I lost it will drop tomorrow Yeah Yeah and a lot of experts are predicting that there's no way the courts are going to let this go through so <hes> it's just so anticipated coal to like everything that our entire immigration system the good parts of it are supposed to to represent and what's left of the Mark Morgan is not the guy who says he can tell by looking at a child's is that they're going to be an M._s. thirteen when they get older. I think that's that Guy Disgusting Winner Yeah <hes> let's see what else happened today or this weekend. The U._S. shot down on an Iranian drone over the Strait of Hormuz and that's escalating tensions in the area obviously there that straight of Hormuz is pretty tense area region anyway so what the navy ship the U._S. boxer Iranian drone came within a thousand feet of it and I don't think they shot it down <hes> <hes> there's a couple of different weapons you can use on the deck of a ship to shoot steph down like a see whiz or whatever but I don't think they did that. I think from what I understood they use some sort of technological weapon to disable it which just caused it to crash into the ocean so there's that hat and that's all over the news <hes> and I think that's on the heels of of what a tanker U._k.. Tanker being taken over by Iranians or something like that they can just all sorts of stuff going on <hes> at escalating tensions <hes> and God. God I hope there's I hope there's not a war yeah in every day. I'm like are we there yet. Cool it'd be like Bolton wants to start one and he's always his mustache wants to start another. Yeah Man. He's half man half must have must yeah I I called my reps at this number right down everybody to o two two two four three one to one you call them giving your Zip Code. They connect you to your Rep's office and <hes> I told him to. Please not take us to war. You know what I did that same 'cause I. John Oliver was encouraging it and he's really good at like getting people to do shit and I just wanted it was about Iran to you. Oh cool yeah yeah because it's been like bubbling for a while but I did this a few weeks ago but hell yes do you call your Reps. Do you give that number. Two guys hit on you. That's mark. Oh my gosh killing shorten Cobra enjoyed in the country ginger with Jordan. Okay what's going on in Jordan. Oh my God earning. I hope and I mean everything's since ripped up the the nuclear deal which was working which he admitted was working when he basically said that today it was like a month ago but he said today eh they went over what was in their agreement and so then it's like oh so they've been following it right. <hes> you just didn't authorize it exactly what also really troubles me about the new cycle that happens like <hes> a few weeks ago when there there was a video of you know allegedly like Iran taking off one of their minds from the boat I remember that yeah so when all of that was going on and it was all these competing theories in news organizations coming out with one one story then changing it hours later there was really no resolution. I don't think I don't think if that for the American public which is I think most people were like <hes> yeah. I don't believe that right but it's like considering this could very well be his his next goal for the next four years. God forbid if he gets elected <hes> this is something that we need to be really diligent about understanding sort of what any sort conclusive evidence exists yes for. They're doing Florida. I would look for it before the election win elections yeah oh totally so yeah fear. Bring this country together. Not I don't agree with that so this is a fat. It's like yeah yeah because if the goal is to get reelected then yes also that it because it shields him from being charged with crime right. It's hard to get a new president in the middle of wartime because people you know they don't want that shakiness of the transition whole campaign slogan like keep me out of jail yeah electric that's great but he's like I mean he could very well be turning into sort of career oligarch right so a lot of people get out of the White House and then that's why Ted Cruz in A._S._C. had that rare moment of agreement upon having a law that says that people can't be after they get out because is trump will be the biggest lobbyists them to come out of that doing so much damage while he's here but imagine what he'll do once he's out of the public but still influential. It's going to be fucking crazy totally so even if you can't successfully take us to war before the election even if it happens after he gets still benefit greatly from all of the contracts and Yuck and just a Mile Lagos are like are friggin trump allies that we have now we have to remember when he goes away the people who chanted send her back or still here yeah and also our allies the country's allies we no longer really had them to the same standards and Obama was here so that might not just come back because he's gone. They might just be like we're not forever. I hope that it does I hope that the everyone sort of waiting for him to leave so they can. We just get back to normal right yeah. frigging people are like I forget which person it was <hes>. I think it was there. I'm not gonNA miss speak it was it was an official though of Iran that was like I'm not I'm not going to negotiate. I'm not even GonNa talk talked to this dude. He's like there's no point even talking to him yeah. They're they're literally overtly saying like I will not negotiate with this person and it's not I won't negotiate with the United States that dude. I'm not talking to that. Do that's fair. Yeah I mean I don't I wouldn't I wouldn't either yeah yeah totally but I hope it gets better. God Vote People Vote Yeah Yeah <hes> another pedophile closely associated with trump George Nader he was hit with superseding indictments three of them three charges for obscenity child transportation child pornography so he was already hit up with those I think twelve or so many counts of <hes> possessing child pornography for having those videos on his phone when when it was confiscated by Muller and <hes> the minute he set foot back in the country they've nabbed him but the now the they found they have evidence that he transported a child from Europe to the United States and took him to his hat and took this boy to his house to for sexual reasons so he louise yeah supported a point play right yeah dip fourteen F for ten sanity for context because this will be the first time people are tuning in. Can you give a quick rundown of Nader and his role in some of the key things his biggest thing was he participated in that August third <hes> Twenty Sixteen in trump tower meeting between Joel Zamel and some folks from the trump campaign and Zamel was the guy who worked for PSI group who wrote up <hes> these I guess they were proposals for how they could manipulate social media to win the election and the trump campaign says they never used his plans than with a paid for right after the election exactly nater transferred two million dollars to him and it wasn't Nader's two million dollars because nature is only worth three million. That's a lot to put up your own fine and two of its in cryptocurrencies Yeah Yeah Oh my goodness but he's got a long history of this George Nader of sexual abuse minors <hes> raping kids like the worst stuff you could possibly child pornography yeah yeah. It's really really bad I really I read those charging undocument- he's worse than Epstein and I can't believe I'm saying that he's actually worse than Epstein yeah well. He was what he did. I mean they're all God awful but like if there are levels to this evil shit yet mater is the worst for sure at least the worst I've seen yeah and this whole mall moderate Yeah Yeah Fair enough. I'm sure there's some sick fuck out. There is like a whole beer. I don't want to know about that. I didn't even want to read those charging documents yeah I can't I need brain bleach Jordan. What's up with <hes> your your liberal paper straws? Oh Yeah so <hes> the trump campaign has an adorable merchandise idea right now where they <hes> sent out an email blast to their email list folks and said <hes> basically the liberal snowflake papers trouser bullshit. You could buy this pack of ten Donald Trump plastic straws for fifteen dollars. I do think paper straws or bullshit. It's the first thing I've agreed with but know who's going to buy this shit yeah. <hes> <hes> probably Scott Pruitt. I just think yeah I think it's hilarious that they're going to spend fifteen dollars on ten plastic straws to own the libs yeah trump's themes dries. I can see how some trump would be like this to my collection collection of like my trumpy bearing leg. I'm sure they have other getting ripped off to own US and they've been doing this like lighting their nikes on fire yeah already paying for them or what are we breaking their curic machines or something. Oh Yeah <unk> damaging their own stuff in this case are gaining something. I'll give them that you know. They get something for your money that way. They'll concept is they're being fucked over by trump. WHO's overpricing straws his trumpet? I don't even understand how it's legal for him to brand presidential merchandise. That's already ready legal but he we're so far past that you know it's like yeah. It might be campaign funds then that's probably how he gets around it. You can sell whatever you want to campaign yeah and he started running the day after he was inaugurated as the first time I've ever happened to you. Insanity Brad Pascale said <hes> I'm so overpay straws and I'm sure you are too much like most liberal ideas paper straws don't work and they fall apart instantly. That's fine. That's why we just launched our latest product official trump straws now you can finally be free. Reform Liberal paper straws that fall apart within minutes in ruin your drink paper or whatever those are called right those things that the carcinogens and plastic bottles Oh yes. It's probably food yeah one hundred percent. I'm sure this was a direct deal with Walmart and it was like in a factory using diesel fuel my wish there fucking here on that stuff and they sit there and they're so brainwashed like fucking trouser target target their bullshit but like just sip from the glass. That's what I do like. Don't fucking by trump straw but I get how it's it's totally an easy target polluting. We're not perfect but we're we're doing it for the right reasons like I don't. I'm not against paper refused to use wind but I'm so glad they exist because if you wanNA draw their bullshits stainless steel that's what's up. It's better for the environment. Yes also other like biodegradable stuff that kind of resembled plastic more doesn't turn into like disgusting tree motion your drink yeah on second. I don't know I like it. It does it does seem like a <hes> insignificant story sort of just like a cute headline but there is some sort of good stuff like you said number one your how are you able to put your A._G.. said it how do you put his name on on sell it like presidential merchandise because he got all that pushback when he wanted to make the coin yet fucking yeah and then so he's doing that and then on top of that. It's just a ridiculous issue peddling of Anti Environment Airman yes. It's like so hardy over like yeah police making the environment. A partisan thing is horrifying. It's like no literally we're GONNA die like all the heat act people white people fuck it like ever ever going to politicize like okay they wanted to you know make sure the oil companies were making money and they didn't want to hurt the economy and then they started saying of course the temperatures increasing but it's not because of people that's a hoax yeah. They're just flat out. Fuck the environment. I'm GONNA record yet. They don't even give a fuck because they have so much like I guess momentum when it comes to these surface level issues of just hating the libs somehow still loving the planet go fuck. It is weird seriously. I know they were so satisfied with themselves. When I thought of that metaphor definitely like Oh man they were waiting for some product to come from the environment that would be like not perfect weird stance but you know uh-huh solving your dream? I'll give you that does if you nurture drink. It can be tough also paper. Mills are incredibly blue collared as well which is kind of a big slap in their face yeah of the papermill workers. We'll bring your plastic jobs. I just yeah it's a it's a very good example in a way of trump showing hypocrisy in short sightedness and it's just a weird stance. It's a metaphor the trump mhm strasser almost like a metaphor in themselves like yeah we will kill the earth just to own the lips yup yeah basically and we'll pay for it and we'll pay for made in China. Have we checked the sea turtles pay hey for it would kind of be a good thing for them to do is send everybody a check for like ninety six cents and say it's for Mexico for you. That would be like their pay or something like just really get into it. There you go yeah yeah just male supporters or just a brick. That's Mexico paid for this and started on me twenty dollars a ship right yeah Roger Stone's yeah. It's not logical. She still only motion. I didn't think this through stones are really heavy. Yes yes he's thinking oh stones are cheap all right my name on them and sell them. I'll make a crapload of money should be used to ship show on thirty rock like gold gold case where they had to guess which case was full of gold and the model couldn't hold it up right.

It is time for our call to Action Segment Hashtag. So if you're on social media you may have seen the Hash tag free reality winner and that spearheaded by reality winters mom billy J winner Davis or at B._J.. Winner Davis on twitter so reality. Lee Winner is a former air forced linguist and intelligence contractor that served honorably in the air force and she'd never been convicted of a crime before but while working for the N._S._A.. As a contractor in May of two thousand seventeen <hes> that's the day trump fired Komi. She printed out a report from her work computer `puter detailed hacking attacks against local election officials in voter databases in over twenty one states in the U._S.. So a few days later she smuggled it out of the office in her pantyhose and she sent it to the intercept. That's a media that and the F. B.. I. Arrested or two days before the report was published after being denied bail four times <hes> and held in a small county jail in rural Georgia for over a year reality changed her plea to guilty and agreed to a plea deal that landed her the longest sentence ever for a crime of this type in the United. States the prosecutors recommended sixty three months and the judge obliged and the problem there is that normally federal cases based their sentencing on damage to national security <hes> and she pleaded guilty in June of two thousand eighteen after being held for over a year in prison and as we said and she did apologize took responsibility for her actions <hes> and U._S. Attorney Bobby L. Christine a trump appointee said winners purposeful violation put our nation's security at risk and caused exceptionally grave damage to U._S. national security but did it because according to Robert Cat natch a former D._O._J.. Lawyer in the Civil Division he says that in this case no one's identity was revealed and no one was endangered and despite that and her honorable service they handed down the longest sentence ever imposed in a federal court for unauthorized release of government information to the media at like for example in twenty three twenty thirteen former F._b._i.. Agent got forty three months for a leak of a foiled bomb plot in Yemen to the Associated Press that same year a C._I._A.. Agent was given thirty months for revealing the identity of an undercover agent like blue cover in two thousand fifteen a former C._i._A.. Agent got forty two months for leaking secret opt to disrupt Iran's nuclear program to the New York Times so this is just a sentence or it doesn't seem like it seems retaliatory right. It seems like an attempt to silence information about the Russian hacking operation because that threatens the legitimacy of trump's election first of all and perhaps retaliation for her frustration with trump's firing of Komi which you know meets the federal manual criteria materia for obstruction of justice when he fired by the way so in his press release on the day of Winter Sentencing <hes> U._S.. Attorney Christine Bobby Christine indicated that the sentence was meant to be harsh enough to send a deterrent to any other whistle blowers out there and the judge in the case even verbally expressed that there was no doubt reality winner would never see the inside of a courtroom again these statements themselves indicate the her sentence was not just <hes> but the D._O._J.. And this administration appears very pleased with the manner in which reality winner has been treated and her harsh sentence for over over five over five years in prison so much so that earlier this year at an at an Annual D._O._J.. Awards banquet those involved in securing this record breaking sentence. We're given awards. I didn't know you had awards for this. <hes> realities mother Billie Winner Davis acknowledges fully that her daughter violated her oath and contract by releasing classified documents in the manner in which she did but her treatment and the sentence <hes> forgiving US proof of threats to our democracy appear to be disproportionate and clearly a result of of an overzealous prosecution meant to silence. It's anyone who brings out the truth about Russian election Gary <hes> because trump is so too thick skinned so a police had to stand with reality dot org to sign the petition and Checkout Hash Tag Free Reality Winner on Social Media and vote blue and twenty twenty so we we can partition a new reasonable administration that recognizes the importance of alerting the public to Russian election interference to maybe commute her sentence yeah she. She's incredibly brave for what she did because she had to know she was up against an unusual administration and I think that's even more brave and throws me off the giving thing award. It's like it's like a razzies like worse foreign actors something like what do they even kind of award you give a piece of shit like that a law enforcement award probably but it's just that's awful yeah congratulations on your awesome prosecution and long sentencing dancing yeah basically I'm like imagining a full-blown awards ceremony the lighting and everything yeah same same porn awards hosted by trees yeah exactly God. Here's our yes the sheriff of Little Rock what's so bad yeah. Tom Hanks this year. Yeah that's weird. I was reading that article. I came across that and I was like what award infinity that's terrifying. They reward that sort of X.. Fascism it and yet I wonder what's the buzz word for it but yeah I just thought that she's in there for five years for what she did. Is it it blows and her and her mom acknowledge you know hey broke the law but MHM sixty three months. She'd one guy got forty two months for outing in an agent exactly yeah you can see the double standard here. It's very clear that could get somebody killed. I don't I can't think of any thing that Sh- national security that will could've killed his career. Yeah Yeah I guess so. What state did this happen again? Georgia Georgia. Oh Georgia is not really winning. This is last year's they haven't been right. That seems like something that should in what what was the court like what circuit or or like what level did it like move up and he sort of level of appeals do you know. They said that she couldn't appeal it essentially right just because she pleaded guilty and agreed okay so that they can mean yeah because I think it's they get like you said. I think it's really plead guilty and then yeah it seems like something that should be handled in a higher court by something else like some other organizations U._S.. Attorney Federal Court yeah. I don't know I guess I just want something more than just like the court of Georgia no offense Georgia national security thing right so what's the U._S.. Attorney's office yeah so it's federal got it southern district of New York but in Georgia Guy Kinda okay cool seems wrong. I'm with Jordan of course it doesn't feel right and there is more they can do yeah. I just imagine that all of these cases would be handled in like D._c.. Or something in some super official representative of the entirety of the American freighter espionage case out pretty quickly quickly they seem they they somehow yes. She admitted it but like they fuck man but yeah I think I think what they do. Is they prosecute where the in the U._S. Attorney's office in the district where the crime was committed. Yeah they have an office there jurisdiction totally under jurisdictional rules or something like that yeah because yeah that's a big word five years and they started last year or June. Two thousand eighteen is when she pleaded guilty okay and she's already there. He's been there. I don't know she got time served for her year that she suspending. They don't give her that that's fucking insane. She got time served. Yes she's a longer sentence a manafort then yeah wow by the time she gets out and that's that's a very good point longer than Cohen Yeah. They'll they'll probably be new president but like fuck it someone part in her on there by chance. If we elect a new administration we can petition to have her sentence or needs to be someone campaign platform years her mom yeah put it on their fascism. This is so fucked yeah. It's messed up just two extra harsh sentence for really what I think is to protect the president's legitimacy yeah yeah he's just really sensitive about Russia's yeah and she had to know the irony of being the person with that name to do this. She was like Goddamn. It's crazy headline reality winter hashtag reality when yeah and the website again is <hes> stand with reality dot org. I like it worked out hell.

CNN10 - 5/14/19
"It. Tuesday on CNN, ten strains sabotage and one small step on Karl Zeus. Always glad to have watching US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo had been planning a trip to Moscow Russia this yesterday, he cancelled it, and instead headed to Brussels Belgium, that's where the leaders of the United Kingdom Germany and France were scheduled to discuss international tensions with Iran in the US secretary of state decided to join them US military officials recently said they had intelligence that Iran and groups that operate beneath its military. We're planning to target US troops in the Middle East and it sea in response, America's sent warships bomber planes and other military equipment to the strait of Hormuz, a narrow passage of water that borders Iran, now US intelligence indicates are on maybe putting missiles aboard small Iranian boats in the Persian Gulf and the US has moving missiles of its own to the region and American military officials says they're defensive in nature, but the US. Says that the threat from Iran is still real and credible. And that America is taking it seriously with tension simmering between those two countries an official with the British government is calling for a period of comb, very worried about the risk of conflict in by accident with mess. Flation is unintended early on either side and with some kind of conflict, and so we'll be sharing those concerns with my European counterparts with my compare as US secretary pump AO meets with those officials in Belgium, Iran, flexing its muscles in the Middle East. And Ronnie in naval show of force in the Persian Gulf, just as the US deployed and aircraft carrier to the region. A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander going on state TV saying American military assets are in their crosshairs files. Minogue? Imagine this is their hair craft carrier. He said at least forty or fifty aircraft are on board and six thousand personnel right now. There are target for us. The US says it urgently deployed the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN to the Persian Gulf and sent both be fifty two bombers and additional patriot anti-aircraft batteries to the Middle East after the US said it detected Iranian military movement that could indicate a threat to US bases in the region before leaving for Brussels secretary of state palm peyot with a warning for the Iranians an attack on American interest from an Iranian led force whether it's an Iranian proper or as an entity that is controlled by the Iranians, we will hold the responsible party accountable. Iran accuses the Trump administration of escalating the situation Tehran, accusing Washington of trying to bring Iran to its knees through economic and psychological warfare Iranian parliamentarians, telling CNN talks with the Trump administration or out of the question for now on American's are not were having a dialogue with this parliamentarian says they can't be trusted for talks. They're not worthy of dialogue, and they lie about their intentions for meeting and talking with us if they wanna dialogue. They would have threatened us militarily with tough talk on both sides, then you Iran ins are ready. Suffering under tough US. Sanctions are concerned the situation could escalate into armed conflict with devastating consequences for play conc-. Take wrong. Meantime, US President Donald Trump is warning Iran. Not to take action against American interests saying, quote, if they do anything, it would be very bad mistake. We'll see what happens if there's a confrontation between Iran and the US the Middle Eastern country has threatened to close the strain of Hormuz that can impact the global economy since about thirty percent of the world's crude oil is shipped through the strait. There was an incident earlier this week involving four oil carrying ships that were near the strait. They were apparently targeted by an act of sabotage international officials, including US secretary of state Pompeo are not saying Iran was behind it and Iran's government called the incidents, quote alarming and regrettable but anxiety is high in the region. What will learning as that these full vessels these commercial vessels? That was sabotage one of this one the L Zucca Saudi registered vessel appear to have had these sabotage incidents in the early hours of Sunday morning. We know we now know that there were the full vessels two of them were registered to Saudi Arabia one to registered to the some one registered to Norway. What appears to have happened undestanding lending is that a coal was made in the early hours of Sunday mooning saying that water was perhaps getting into the engine room that something out of the ordinary was happening. The space of the next couple of hours, it appeared that full vessels out here in the states of HMOs off the port of Fujeirah were experiencing some sort of irregularities Emirati authorities began investigating and that's when they realized they were these incidents of sabotage. Now. It's not quite clear yet what cold. Ause the this sabotage how it was perpetrated or even for that matter who perpetrated it emerald Chea throat is clearly investigating. But what we what we know is that these full vessels out here, and you see across the horizon here about a hundred vessels top these four different vessels that were impacted by the sabotage not in the same place. They were scattered throughout the area. And of course, this comes at a time when is rising tensions between the United States. And around the Brahim Lincoln back carrier battle group is on the way into the area patriot missile batteries on the way into the area as well as well as be fifty two bombers Costa Rahm not far away from here. So while the Emirati authorities continue to investigate and we're awaiting the outcome of that investigational quite clear yet when it will come above waiting for the outcome of investigation. Of course, this these sabotage incidents risk raising tensions. Ten second trivia, what was the name of Nath as last manned mission to the mood. Luna to Apollo thirteen. Constellation Apollo seventeen. The last time if human set on the moon surface was during Nasr's Apollo seventeen mission. The first time someone set foot on the moon occurred fifty years ago on July sixteenth nineteen sixty nine as part of Nasr's Apollo eleven mission. Nasa estimates that five hundred thirty million people around the world watched on TV or listened on the radio as commander Neil Armstrong took the first steps he also took a little bit of heat over something. He said. The eagle has landed. When Neil Armstrong stepped out to become the first man on the moon, not a soul on earth could have guessed. He would land in the middle of a cosmic controversy. All. Topley? The problem the first part of his stork sentence. That's one small step for man is grammatically. Incorrect. It should have been one small step for a man, and that missing a has been setting off grammarians ever since lift off the final lift off of Atlantis through all the years. Nasa has insisted that he did say, the a and modern microphones would have picked it up. Instead, the word was lost on scratchy old Queant operating nearly a quarter million miles away and Armstrong though, he rarely gave interviews throughout his life. Agreed with NASA so much many scientists have tried lies the recordings and break down the sound waves with inconclusive results. But now researchers from Michigan state and Ohio State believe they have evidence that Armstrong's utterance may have been shaped less my space than by something very down to earth, the famous. Astronaut was an Ohio boy, and these researchers studied hundreds of recordings of native saying the words for a and they found almost two hundred times the words were pushed together making a sound like FRA. So listen again, I'm all for man. Like the moon trip itself. The theory may be a long shot. But it could also prove the final word on the words of the man on the moon. Tom foreman CNN Washington. Maybe you've heard of gorillas in the mist this video proves they don't like the rain, at least these gorillas don't zookeeper recorded this at the riverbanks zoo, and South Carolina the animals are apparently under an awning. But where they really wanna be is under their roof after one of them makes the trip it's not long before the others follow suit for the primates in that climate. It's high time it got more dry. It makes them site. If there's a giant storm, so violent. They revilement wonder why won't be quiet. They could riot. They will buy it. So to tie up just dry it up and give the brain when the weather becomes wetter. And you don't want helter skelter gasoline to get to root for gorilla glue shelter. Carlos and that CNN.

Iran Seizes Tanker in Persian Gulf
"Here the extraordinary secrets of how to thrive in disrupted world the old rules of management are not ready correct anymore so what works making a wise proven pivoted the future with will I am and Omar Abba subscribe wherever you get your podcasts Iran said Thursday that it had seized a foreign tanker in the Persian Gulf accusing it of smuggling fuel the incident heightened tensions but differs from previous incidents in the region involving oil tankers worse this one is different for smuggling tiny vessel that was in Iranian the waters and has no backstory of large good exports in fact he was clearly products so it's fully being magnified because of context president trump said hours later that a U._S.. Navy ship had shot down and Iranian drone in the State of Hormuz saying the drone was threatening safety of the ship and the ship's crew. This is what's news from the Wall Street Journal. I'm Anne Murray refer totally in New York before we get to rising tensions with Iran here or some other top stories. We're following president. Trump says he disagreed with chance by his supporters at a political rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night. The crowd chanted send her back referring to Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar who was born in Somalia and immigrated to the U._S.. As a child. Omar is one of four democratic congresswoman. The president attacked on twitter saying they should go back to unspecified had countries the other three congresswoman were born in the United States. The House passed a resolution earlier this week condemning trump's tweets as racist Morgan Stanley reported a ten percent drop in quarterly profit on Thursday due to weakness and trading in an investment banking Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley were the only two big U._S.. Banks to report lower quarterly profits compared to a year ago while J. P. Morgan Chase City Group Wells Fargo and Bank of America saw boost from their consumer businesses. A federal judge has denied Jeffrey Epstein bail meaning. He'll remain in jail until his trial on sex trafficking charges Epstein had requested to be placed under house. Arrest prosecutors say he conducted a year's long scheme to procure an exploit exploit dozens of girls Epstein has pleaded not guilty anheuser-busch inbev which recently canceled plans for an initial public offering of its Asian unit is now considering selling some of its assets the Wall Street Journal reports that the company which. Bruce Budweiser is considering selling off its units in South Korea Australia and Central America. The company is reportedly looking to cut. It's one hundred billion dollar debt load and raise ten billion dollars from asset sales. That's the amount it had aim to raise in the I._P._O.. I._P._O.. Of Its Asian unit capital one knows life doesn't alert you about your credit card. That's why they've created. E-e-e-e-no the capital one assistant that catches things things that might look wrong with your credit card. He no catches over tipping duplicate charges or potential fraud and then sends an alert sheer phone and helps you fix it. It's another way capital. One is watching after your money when we're not capital one. What's in your doc wallet Dot Com for details? Iran says it has seized a foreign tanker in the Persian Gulf claiming it was smuggling one million leaders of fuel. The incident is again stoking tensions between Iran and the West joining me now via skype from London is Wall Street Journal reporter Ben Wafa Cohn. This is one of several incidents in recent memory involving oil tankers and Iran. What can you tell us about what we know so far car when he will look like an outlier competitive with the other vessel that were involved in accidents? I mean if you think about incidents you know the previous must-listen examples British Petroleum B._p.. Tanker NCUA arriving from Iraq and was leaving for export for the straight of owners and allegedly was brock's by Jesse Navy so we don't have to be exposed. You know a big business very international mainstream. The previous tankers that that where attacks basically wear similar nature Japanese navision you know big operations big exports media <unk> potential disruptions of logic force to to Asia Europe. This one is different. It's a smuggling tiny any vessel that was Iranian waters and has no backstory of of large could exports in fact he was clearly products and he was in Iranian woods so it's fully being magnified because of the context but might be more erosion police operation and this latest incident comes as European nations are separately trying to hold together the twenty fifteen nuclear pact with Iran also amid heightened tensions between Iran and the United States. You mentioned that tensions have been ratcheting up recently. How does this latest incident fit in with that in a way? It doesn't quite fit because what happens what he does. Reflect is really the tensions and how the all market but Bali in the international community has become extremely sensitive over about any incidents taking place in these key or waters so but in this case it seems it was basically the Iranian navy rice resting testing a small vessel it suspected of of carrying smuggling I mean it's unlike others in the case in the sense that he does a lot of transshipments. This vessel goes dot very often. It has supplied vessels that I go into Somalia and Yemen men off the mainstream of international or shipping in some way but again because of the context it becomes the big story. How has the West been responding? What are you hearing from? European leaders was so far. We've he'd U._S.. U._S. officials saying well. It looks like it's not quite it's unlikely to be just a rescue operation because we had Casey's vissel that U._S.. Said where attacked and subsequently where the Iran reversionary gots to off the demands that were on these vessels appear to have according to use sort of our contradictory. I teach it so here. They basically say everything that he's known in these orders obviously suspicious but at the same time and the U._S. does confirm that he was seized. I at the same time it's not it's moved markets and created more concerns but I don't think it's kind of the sort of a referee co escalation that we saw you know after the incident in May and June where they were attacks as you know on tankers that were allegedly carried by by Iran. I think this is nor as strong internal reaction as we've seen in rice in part you did mention another aspect that I wanted to ask you about. We do see in commonality with these incidents volatility and oil prices exactly so every incident now is moving. Prices May actually fall back on other fundamentals like you know <hes> U._S.. Batteries for instance saw Chinese demand but the much more or markets. It's a much more volatile than let's say they would have been your ago. That's one element and the concerns you know remain extremely high to the point that obviously the U._S. is looking to end up specific naval force. US that would be addressing the Rod Fritz. It's not like the one we have today that is broadly about you know Persian Gulf security or anti-piracy Dowana specifically directed to use and as you know there's going to be meeting very soon where the U._S. will ask for supports awards military support from countries that Japan for instance as well as financial support from countries that Saudi Arabia so this episode today fits into that broader concerned that the U._S. wants to address his International Community Wall Street Journal reporter Benoit Phone joining us via skype from London. Thank you so much Ben. Wa thank you and later on Thursday. President Trump said U._S.. Navy ship had shot down in Iranian drone in the state of her moos saying the drone was threatening safety fifty of the ship and the ship's crew for the latest developments on the story. Please head to our website wsj.com or the W._S._J.. APP The European Union has find qualcomm two hundred forty two million euros for about two hundred seventy two million dollars saying it hindered competition the Wall Street Journal's Lawrence Norman explains so what the European Union in authorities are saying this is contested by qualcomm. You're going to <hes> appeal. The decision to the codes is the U._S.. Company engaged in what they could predatory pricing the ES said was this predatory pricing. I'm involved setting price for chips. He fell to go into cell fines below because to producing them and they did this over shortish period of time but the said it was deliberately designed to kill off of competition from quicken pants to which was a British called Faira which is now in the hands of the company.

"Are Lieber Secretary. Alex Acosta stands by plea agreement he made with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in our part. We were trying to do the right thing for these victims house. He defending himself as pressure builds for him to resign. I'm Noel Well King here with Rachel Martin and this is up I from N._p._R.. News also why is one of the biggest teachers unions suing the Department of Education. The Department of Education just cannot seem to get this right. We'll bring you exclusive N._p._R.. We are reporting on a new lawsuit against the student loan. Forgiveness program and Britain warns that Iranian vessels tried to block British commercial oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz what now for the increasingly tense relations between Iran the U._S. and its allies. Stay with us. We'll give give you the news you need to start your day support for up first and the following message come from honest striving to make better for you products when you choose honest beverage money goes to fair trade certified suppliers to help support report their communities visit honesty dot com slash podcast to learn more support also comes from simplisafe home security simplisafe protect your whole home every window room and door with a round the clock professional monitoring and no long term contracts get free shipping on your order at simplisafe dot com slash up first secretary of labor. Alex Acosta is defending plea deal that he oversaw nearly a dozen years ago as a U._S.. Attorney in Florida now yeah that deal allowed the financier Jeffrey Epstein to avoid federal charges for sexually abusing young girls in a press conference yesterday. Acosta said his office handled the case right. I know that in two thousand nineteen looking back on two thousand eight things may look different but this was the judgment of prosecutors with dozens of years of experience people started looking at that plea deal again when prosecutors in New York Charge Epstein with sex trafficking last weekend we've. We've got N._P._R.'s lead political editor Domenico Montanaro with us this morning High Dominica Good Morning Rachel so the Secretary of Labor Alex Kosta spoke for almost an hour yesterday. What else did he say is that it was difficult? Case in Epstein was going to be essentially let off the hook ah if he didn't intervene so let's listen to part of his justification. There is a value to a short guilty plea because letting him walk letting what the State Attorney was ready to do. Go forward forward would have been absolutely off now. Acosta said that he wasn't going to roll the dice on not getting a conviction he wanted Epstein to go to jail he wanted to register as a sex offender even though the sentence being very light and the man who was that Palm Beach County State Attorney at the time is now saying that a cost his recollection was completely wrong that he had an indictment prepared but was abandoned after secret negotiations between epsteins lawyers and Acosta but it gets more tangled because in the big Miami Herald store all this last year you might remember the police involved at the time who were going after Epstein actually blamed that same Palm Beach County State Attorney for pressuring them to downgrade the charges or drop the case altogether a tangled Web <hes> <hes> to be sure so let's talk about the political implications of this. I mean we know there's been a lot of pressure from Democrats pointing to Acosta and saying you gotta quit <hes> putting pressure on the president to fire him but the Labor secretary has also had some MHM critics on the right well yeah I mean there haven't been many on capitol. Hill all say that they've been mostly defending him in sticking by the president's line but there have been reports that the president's chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was unhappy with the cost for not being more aggressive in dismantling some of these Obama obama-era workplace regulations and a cost of dismissed that tension though yesterday saying that Mulvaney told them to quote say that any talk of problems between them is quote B._S.. So this is such a horrible story a really when you sit and you read the details all of it and <hes> it makes you wonder if if there's any political cost for for the President I mean when they're such universal a disgust with these allegations does the president bear political cost of he keeps a cost around. Well look you know he's the producer and chief and you know there's lots of reporting that he wanted a cost to actually do this press conference to show that you know that he could handle this <hes> he didn't apologize to victims and trump doesn't like people who apologize Vice President Mike Pence gave a kind of tepid statement afterwards yesterday saying that he serves at the pleasure of the president has all the cabinet members and we're in this odd situation where president trump himself was friends with Jeffrey Epstein some years ago before he says they had a falling out and it's notable that former president Bill Clinton did as well so we'll see where any of this winds up going or if any of that sticks N._p._R.'s Domenico Montanaro thank you you're welcome okay the British navy a saying that it was able to stop and Iranian paramilitary vessels from blocking the passage of a British commercial ship in the Strait of Hormuz. Yeah this is notable because there has been a lot going on in the Strait of Hormuz recently including awesome attacks on oil tankers. It's a tense time between Iran and other world powers especially the United States president trump pulled the U._s. out of the Iran nuclear agreement last year and he recently imposed new sanctions on Iran right. So what does this latest alleged move by Iran. I mean for all of that. We've got Washington Post reporter Aaron Cunningham on the line with us from Dubai Aaron. Thanks for being with us. I think so much. What more can you tell us about what happened? Though it's unclear exactly what happened but what the British government is saying is that these Iranian vessels there were three of them they approached the tanker the British heritage that had been in the Persian Gulf and was traveling through the Strait of Hormuz and attempted to stop it now the tanker was being escorted by a British navy ship and so they were able to that ship that escort was was able to signal to the Iranians that that they should turn away and and they did and it was able. To pass safely after that <hes> from from the U._S. side you know some U._S.. Officials were saying that the Iranians had attempted to seize the vessel but it's just not clear that that's what happened. <hes> it may have been sort of they wanted to <hes> you know make a point harass the ship <hes> in the waterway and so that's where we stand right now and this is not happening in a vacuum obviously as Noel alluded to it some level this is all about the Iran nuclear deal and Iran continuing continuing to agitate the United States which pull out of the deal but also trying to pressure the current signatories to the deal to live up to their end of the bargain and give Iran the financial benefits that thinks it deserves so how how is this likely I mean this was a British tanker. How is it likely to change Britain's Calculus on Iran and the nuclear deal? I'm not entirely sure that it will and with you know with the United Kingdom they've been sort of in the middle between <hes> the hardline U._S. position and sort of the softer European position that you know has been emphasizing diplomacy and wants to sort of you know keep keep Iran in the fray and and within the deal now the U._K.. Is is committed to the nuclear agreement and it has said that on multiple occasions but it's also been a bit more forceful in condemning what it says are sort of malign Iranian activities in the Persian Gulf in in the Strait of Hormuz so I think that you'll see sort of a harder harder line from the U._k.. After this but it's not clear that they will support you know extra sanctions for example or if they will you know skill their own commitments under the nuclear deal as well Aaron Cunningham from the Washington Post <hes>. Thank you very much for being with us this morning. We appreciate it thank you what are the biggest teachers unions in. This country is suing the U._S.. Department of Education that's right N._p._R.. Obtained The complaint exclusively and it alleges that a student loan forgiveness program is in such shambles that it's actually illegal now. This program is supposed to forgive student loans for people who've worked ten years in public service jobs but for a lot of people that is not what's happening. N._P._R.'s Chris Arnold has been covering this story uncovered it in the first place and he's with us now. Hey Chris Rachel so just tell us more about this suit who's filing it and why well the American Federation of Teachers Filing it but this goes far beyond teachers this involves the Public Service Loan forgiveness program which was created by Congress a decade ago and it was created to encourage public service service so government and nonprofit work. That's police officers Nurses Peace Corps volunteers. All kinds of jobs government made a promise basically if you work for ten years in public service and you make ten years alone payments the government will forgive the rest of your federal student loans which is like a great France the the problem is that only one percent of people who do this track. They do it for ten years to make these payments that go to get approved. Only one percent get approved. Everybody's getting reject us so people who took certain jobs with the entire intention attention of of getting their student debt race after ten years they are not getting the help they thought they would exactly and we talked to Christopher Peterson as a former top attorney at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He says if you could get all of these people who are getting rejected acted into one place basically you'd have football stadiums full of nurses firefighters teachers law enforcement officers that are seeking to have their debts forgiven having made all of these is payments under the impression that they were on track and are now. They're being turned away in droves so you know that's pretty bad and it's sparking a lot of outcry a bunch of lawsuits well. What's the justification I mean? Why aren't those loans getting forgiven well? What one big problem is that to get loan? Forgiveness things get a little complicated and you have to be in the right type of federal loan and the right type of repayment plan and people are saying that will look. I called my Loan Servicing Company. I call it eight hundred number on my statement and I got bad. What information they never told me I needed to change into this kind of loan and then ten years later they find out oops? You Know Oh sorry nothing we can do now. We talked to Debbie Baker. WHO's a music teacher in Tulsa Oklahoma? This happened to her. She says she got stuck with seventy six thousand thousand dollars that she thought was about to be forgiven and when this hit I just I didn't know whether to cry. Throw up. Get Mad. I just didn't know what to do. I honestly did not think the federal government would do this to someone so what happens <unk> to someone like Debbie I mean is this lawsuit now going to make a difference for her and her debt well. She's a plaintiff so quite possibly who knows but for everybody else the lawsuits trying to get the department to come up with an appeals process that could work for lots and lots of people <hes> we we should say that the Department of Education recently implemented a dramatic fix to a different program which which we reported on the teach grant program and that now is returning grant money to thousands of people who had grants taken away on fairly so fixes are possible is the Department of Education anything about this so far. The lawsuits just being filed this morning that they don't have a comment yet all right N._p._R.'s Chris Arnold for us this morning on this lawsuit against the Department of Education Chris.

I'm Dave bittner with your cyber wire summary for Friday, June twenty-first 2019 tensions between the US and Iran. Already high over attacks on tankers in the Arabian Gulf, and ongoing disputes over Iran's nuclear ambitions have risen significantly in the wake of Iran's shootdown of a US air force. Our cue for a Global Hawk reconnaissance, and surveillance drone on Wednesday. The US says the drone was in international airspace. Over the straits of Hormuz Tehran says the arc you for a was flying over southern Iran either might be right in the fog of war, but we're strongly inclined to go with the US air force on this one. The Global Hawk is a big capable and expensive platform, costing one hundred thirty one point four million dollars a copy leaving research, and development costs out of the reckoning it's forty seven and a half feet long has a wingspan just. Shy of one hundred thirty one feet and it weighs more than eight tonnes when it's loaded for emission. It's got a fourteen thousand mile range, cruises at about three hundred fifty miles an hour and has a sixty thousand foot service ceiling. It doesn't of course, have a pilot or crew on board. So no lives were lost when in Iran, Ian surface to air missile, probably a Siad SD to see knocked it down still Theron says it sent a message and Washington is unhappy with the shootdown those drones aren't cheap. And there are only so many of them to go around besides their US government property. And so the US government is understandably steamed, what's this got to do with cybersecurity? You may. Well, ask well, it's this as is so often, the case, Connecticut action is accompanied by cyber action, especially when there appears to be the danger of esscalation and cyber battlespace preparation appears to be underway. Wired says that the security firms Drago's and crowd strike have report. Added a surge in phishing emails, deployed against a range of American targets. The actor is said to be a PT thirty three also known as magnesium or refined kitten fire I without naming the threat. Actor says it seeing much the same at least some of the phishing attempts were baited with what appeared to be an announcement of a job opening at the White House's council of economic advisers the militias link opened an HTML application which in turn started visual basic script on the targeted machine that installed the payload the power ten remote access Trojan. All of these security firm say are consistent with how refined kitten has done business in the past. It's not known if any of the attempts have been successful, nor is it clear, whether their goal is reconnaissance of potential targets or the staging of malware against the possibility of future. Use crowd strikes at a Myers speculated to wired that the choice of fish, bait suggest that the campaign might be principally interested in gathering. Intelligence about US policy with respect to economic sanctions, but he points out that this is exactly that speculation the point of the campaign isn't known espionage is possible. But so are reconnaissance. And staging Dragos is Joe slowec told wired that, quote, you can't turn on a dime and save I need cyber now. And quote, that's what battlespace preparation involves getting the intelligence, getting the reconnaissance and staging capabilities, where you may need them. Under pressure to do something about abusive its platform to inspire violence in Sri Lanka and me on mar Facebook is trying something other than content moderation.

This one is satori like dot net that arrives via the Android debugged bridge, and finally, it's long been a truism that criminal markets behave in many ways, like legitimate markets, and that criminal enterprises, Abe some of the practices of legitimate biz. Mrs researchers at security company Gari have been looking at some of the west African cyber gangs, the people who gave the world, the now familiar, but still sometimes affective Nigerian prince scam a Gari tells axios that Email scammers run their operations like a business complete with consultants and lead generation systems, the gangs use regular lead generation services of the kinds that many legitimate businesses employ as the story in axios, puts it a Gari has seen the criminal groups use several lead generation firms, the lead generation sites offer, customizable searches, you want CFO's of companies in a given sector of a given size and a particular geographical region. You got him a Gari found that the crooks generally signed up for free trials using the g mail dot trick that lets them create accounts easily some of them are even more brazen. The London blue crew just went ahead and bought a fifteen hundred dollar annual subscription to a lead generation service last year. Was it worth it currently at least London blue seems to have thought so they downloaded fifty thousand leads in six months? And now a word from our sponsor observe. It according to Cisco over the course of one and a half months. The typical suspicious insider can download fifty two hundred documents unfortunately many ad hoc insider threat investigations can drag on for weeks or even months since it's tough to know. Exactly. Who did what when and why security analysts have to Wade through a sea of event logs many of which are completely irrelevant who eventually discover the root cause of an incident. What are we told you that there's a way to investigate insider threat incidents faster with observe? It's dedicated insider threat management platform security teams can quickly find out the context into both the user and data activity behind an alert detailed user activity timelines and easily.

And I'm pleased to be joined once again by Mike Benjamin. He's the senior director of threat research at century links black Lotus labs, a Mike. It's great to have you back. You all been tracking a large RTP scanning campaign, and it's been getting some attention lately. What do we need to know here? RTP, of course, a lot of folks are using to administrate remote computers and often is using single factor username and password. And with that sort of structure, on the internet actors want to take advantage of for variety of reasons and periodically will see someone come out on the internet, and scan RTP across the internet. They'll look for some pretty simple default username passwords. And they'll move on with their day. They'll grab a handful of hosts and, and that's about the extent of what they'll -ccomplish we are constantly monitoring for internet wide anomalies in port utilization. So those things tend to stand out like a sore thumb when somebody issues. Such a scam. They also tend to do them from a small subset of hosts so you'll see a number of other public resources talk about. Hey, I'm seeing a scan from IP address, x y and z in this particular campaign what we were seeing was. They were dropping a persistence, payload on the host, and then in some cases, even using that to scan for more hosts, and so while, not a warm in the true nature of the word. They were using that scale to find more hosts, and we saw a lot of folks reporting on the fact that there were one point five million open RDP hosts on the internet, and that sounds like a horribly scary number, right? Anything that can talk to one point five million hosts, however, the actual infection pool that we were able to see where they successfully brute forced. And the we saw command and control callback was more in the tens of thousands still, not a small number in regards to success, but nowhere near that one point five million number. Now, this is the campaign that folks referring to his goal. Absolutely. The command controls been publicly listed, and as was the port number for the callback. So of course folks can review their logs to look to see if they were one of those infected two what are the ways to for folks to prevent this first and foremost? Don't turn on RTP on the internet. Vnc even SSH try to restrict it to the places where we actually need to be accessing it from, that's pretty basic security, control. The most folks can use, and in this case, they were using dictionary attacks, so basic password, hygiene could also prevent such an attack. So what are the take here? What did we learn from this one? Well, anytime an actor decides that they want to automate, the scale of what they're doing it gets us all in a bit of an uproar. But in most cases, will find that what they're attacking really isn't that complex a number of years ago, we saw embedded IOT devices attacked with some extremely simple user names and passwords that then evolved to a whole plethora. Exploits that we see embedded into those things. But I'll tell you about ninety nine percent of the time. They're no necsports with existing patches and known dictionary method attacks. So the good news is we can manage these things, and as we see them as an internet community as a security community, we should make sure that we're openly sharing what's going on. And make sure the were patching those, you know, simple simple to do tasks, you know, never underestimate. How many folks out there just trying to be opportunists? Absolutely. And in many of these cases we're seeing the sophistication that occurs afterwards not be particularly high with some of these really loud actors, but keep in mind, those vulnerable hosts those default credentials sit out there for more sophisticated actors to us as well the things that we need to be concerned about even if the, the very loud ones aren't actually causing much impact at the end of the day. All right. We'll might Benjamin. Thanks for joining us. And now a word from our sponsor extra hop.

And he's also former CEO at Twitter and former head of security at Mozilla our conversation focuses on how he as someone with purchasing authority prefers to have products pitched by cyber security, vendors, I had some pretty exciting years leading security programs. I was head of security at Mazzola for many years. I was also the see so at Twitter for a number of years, and what I noticed was that there was clearly a lot of activity in the vendor space for security solutions, which is great. We need an invasion, but the way in which they reached out to potential buyers like myself as a C. So left me, certainly wanting more. I would receive largely a ton of unsolicited inbound emails with really. Hughley. Message formats, I applaud the efforts to try and catch are I, but they end up having an unintended consequence emails. Like, do you care about security or, or did you know you're vulnerable to this? Let's talk more all things. I get it. They're trying to be catching clever. But it's actually kind of kind of off putting. Yeah. The thing that hit me initially was that massive amount of cold, call Email that I would get, and that really just didn't work. Well, as, as I know we'll dive into here. Well, let's come at it from the other direction, the folks who were successful who got your ear. What techniques today us as a result of the large amount of movement. There's obviously tons of investments in security right now, tons of innovation, lots of new companies because of their fact, there's so much noise many buyers like myself would actually rotate hard, the other way. Instead, we would rely very heavily on referrals from a personal networks. And I realized that, that is something that would happen in any space, you always want rough, you know, think about a referral, but insecurity, in particular, DC, so's form together in these see-saw networks, and we have one in the bay area, and I know other. Industries in other locations have them, too, and in some regards a bit of a support network, because let's face it the security role is hard. It's hard at every. But, but we would definitely use that, that referral, like, hey, have you guys heard of this, or I'm looking for solution in this space and see who had pipe in. And that, that is great. It's really good to have a referral. But at the same time that could leave us a little bit blinded to really great new innovation that we should be should be thinking about, do you think there's a risk of becoming insular? I think we're gonna challenging spot because we definitely need to branch out and look at new ideas. Look, a new solutions and, and yes, if we're not careful, we could be a little bit insular right now in terms of the solutions and products we use. But I think the trick we need to do is actually shift the way we look at selling security software security solutions on also the method we have for discovery because we've kind of taken to extremes here, we're talking about on one hand. You have cold inbound versus referral. What's that middle ground? Where can we have a? Trusted review of options out there. And in some regard, trusted advocates kind of fill that void if you have a V C relationship someone that you trust the kind of vetting mechanism like, hey these these solutions. Look, pretty interesting insure their in their portfolio, but they've done some vetting to get them their spits kind of nice that works really. Well, of course in Silicon Valley but not scalable to the rest of the country or world. And so can we have some sort of consumer reports style, trusted review or display of vendor information? The thing that's important about that. And why really key in is as a security buyer, you want the security information what the technical chops of what you're looking at? You really don't wanna see a marketing slick sheet that says, machine learning internet of things. How do you measure success, which are false positives? How do you look at those types of things that actually matter to us? So I think we can find that middle ground. If this security vendors realize, hey. Stop trying to push buzzwords stop with the cold calls. How do you show your product and what it actually does hopefully in a neutral space, if we can create such a such a beast, and if not, how do we lead in more of a, a demo I style sales approach like your product speak for itself? Let me come to your website, and like actually see how it works. And for some reason, I think we're really far away from that, that reality right now what do you suppose that is? There's no doubt that there is a lot of noise out there. I mean you walk around on, on any of the trade show floors, and it's hard to focus on any one thing, everyone's fighting for your attention. So I guess on one hand, I have a certain amount of sympathy for the folks out there who trying to sell in that environment. And I have to eat my own words here because I'm now on the other side of the fence. Yeah. I think one we have a macro challenge and security, which is there's far too much headline chasing. You know, Hollywood style products that are solving things that don't matter. And because they're so much investment money out there right now. The bar to get funded the bar to start a new idea is, is lower, perhaps than it should be as a result. You see just crazy off the wall ideas that may catch fire because of their buzzword Innis may get a set of buyers that aren't as technically, adept, that need it like what is your solution right now to quantum encryption, and things like that, like, well, it's a cool buzzword, but is it really the most important thing solve in your program? So we have that big mismatch between flashy headline grabbing things people trying to solve AP really. They don't even have good inventory management or how do you even think about automation, real time alerting? Something like the target breach in. So I think that's one problem. There's just so much stuff out there and then the second part really is, we don't have a channel that can give people that neutral way of learning about companies. So it really is the biggest shouting match. How can I shout more over Email? How can I shout with catchy phrases that a expo floor and that's an unfortunate reality of where we are right now. I think as we mature as buyers, become more sophisticated more where but they need to focus on. We'll get better and going back to that point again like I would really love for that neutral evaluation. Like give me the maybe not a hard copy. But that magazine of what are the different security products in different spaces. And how do we have a neutral body to give some information about them? Now if someone's reaching out to you, you get that Email in your inbox, what would the ideal approach be how could someone get your attention and get you to spend a little more time with their? Yeah. I think that actually is a really good question. Because sure I'm harping on Email is really hard. It ended is because there's so many inbounds but there's a lot. We can do in the messaging it self because there is some amount of hit rate there, some opportunities where people do sit downs. Let me let me see what's going on. What kind of inbounds I have the thing that can help a lot for vendor selling to see? So is to basically do the three second test. Let's assume you're going to get three seconds as they scroll through, if they open it so make your subject line helpful. But if they scroll through that Email, you're gonna get three seconds, don't have a long narrative, don't have tons of words. Do not ask me things that make me kind of recoil in bit of frustration. Like, yes, I do care about security. I love cute. Puppies. I know you don't have a silver bullet and all these things I just cut through all that. Just tell me one. What do you do like we solve this problem? Don't tell me about flashy features because we don't need to sell on features. When you saw on what problem get solved. If you tell me number one, what problem you solve? I will then self select I have that problem. Right. Don't and either answer is good for you because we don't need to talk about that problem. But if I do read the next time, tell me how you solve that problem do it. Maybe this is my Twitter. My Twitter day's coming back. Do it in, like one sentence, or to able to should be compelling in two sentences and three tell me how you integrate because that's actually really important for security person to wrap their head around, like, am I looking at a network device on my looking at an agent on my workstations help me wrap my head around it real quick. And then after those three things what I would ideally like as a buyer, let me go view your product without talking to sales. I know it's horrible. I know you want me to talk to sales, but let me just see it because if I can do. Those things there's a better chance. I will learn about your product, and when it's the time is right? I will engage. But if you don't do those things because you really want me to engage with sales. I you really want me to read this long narrative. Well happens, I will do none of those, and you have no reaction from me. And I think that's a worse worse outcome. Because when you look at security and why particular things happen, like if you think about phishing attacks, we're always, like, how does anyone fall for those and most almost no one does. But if point one percent to you descend more emails. So, right. So maybe we're at a spot where the smarter companies are figuring it out, and they're being more successful or maybe were all incredibly biased. And we're in this small segment of the market, but I don't think that's the case. Because as much as we say, there's more technical or less technical cease os, or the west coast, east coast, how they're different from each other, or even the middle America. I think really people want that cornfield. I don't think there's anybody. Out there saying, yeah, I really wanna read through this long narrative to decide if I care about security. Thank you for asking. So I don't know. I don't know or missing. I think we have a fair point, as, as the buyers to say, please just give it to me this way. That's what I want.
