Washington DC conservation group pushes back against a stream restoration project in Alexandria
"In northern Virginia Christi King W. T. O P news. Local leaders and residents of Alexandria are questioning If the Taylor runs Stream restoration will cause more harm than good. The tailor run project was initiated to stabilize the stream corridor and improve local water all while striving to meet the Chesapeake Bay cleanup goals. But the chair of the Environmental Council of Alexandria, Dr Andrew MacDonald, says the process would be harmful. One of the reasons for doing the stream restoration project Is to make the stream healthier and better. The science doesn't bear that out. He says. The large amounts of sediment that would be added to the channels could cause flooding, but local conservationists rust, Bailey says there are some better alternatives. Water retention mechanisms. There's a green
How Bitcoin's vast energy use could burst its bubble
"Today. Many mainstream media articles describe bitcoin as an environmental disaster in reality it relies heavily on renewable energies estimates range from thirty nine percent to seventy four percent consumes a lot of strand excess energy and could very well have a mostly green future but given the poorly informed narratives around the subject one could imagine a world in which the biden administration restricts bitcoin mining as part of a green new deal the to bitcoin problem is perhaps the biggest existing threat to bitcoin users. Today if the top twenty five global exchanges in the us eu in east asia agreed to end user withdrawals then that would effectively bifurcated system. Bitcoin inside the bubble would be waitlisted and bitcoin. Outside could be blacklisted. Meaning if a merchant accepts bitcoin from you that is not on a certain list. They'd be running a risk. No matter how private you are with your bitcoin. It wouldn't matter you need to find people willing to accept your bitcoin with no trail. Such laws would force users into peer to peer markets. Where buyers don't care about coin history even still. There are a lot of barriers to this attack. Exchanges with lose millions of customers and billions of dollars business the defy ecosystem would potentially collapse given it relies on users being able to purchase eath dollars on big exchanges and then withdraw to trading platforms like swab companies in the space would vigorously resist any change that would prevent citizens from withdrawing bitcoin or any cryptocurrency. Two self-controlled

When James and other famous people get involved in politics. He was the same guy who said This is James response. He was the same guy who said When he was back in Sweden, because his last name wasn't a certain last name that he felt there was some racism going on. When he was out out on the pitch, James said. I speak very Educated mind speak from a very educated mind. So I'm kind of the wrong guy I'd actually go to because I do my homework. May see this soccer players saying, like, Look, stick to sports get out of politics. They were My take on this is like I just Yeah. I mean, I I understand the I understand the point people make on sports. It's like Hey, look. You know, sports and entertainers, singers. Mm hmm. There's some people to get upset about the fact when they weigh in the politics or whatever, but look, because people come to they watch a game to get away from politics or to get away from what's going on in Washington. They, You know, go to a concert because they want to get away from it. It's like this folks are human, too. Like they there's more of their lives and just shooting a basketball or, you know, singing into a microphone. And so I don't I never get too worked up about that stuff.

Newspaper shows a doctor wearing scrubs appearing in a virtual california traffic hearing. Are you a available for johnson county. You're an operating reminding mid guest available for trial right ahead even the commissioner overseeing the hearing can't believe it so unless i'm mistaken is being defendant. That's in the middle of an operating room appearing to be actively engaged in providing services to a patient is that correct mr green as her I'm new not feel comfortable For the welfare of a patient. If you're in the process of operating that i would put on trial right here. Who's doing the surgery with me. So i can stand here and allow them to do the surgery also not all. I'm i don't think so. I don't think that's appropriate. Reached by phone when nbc news asked the doctor about his court hearing on the newspaper. Article he replied. That's not accurate but would not comment further but the state medical board is looking into the incident writing.

Wall Street pulls back, weighed down by tech
"The NASDAQ fell into negative territory for the year. By the way, has got no yield. Right? Right. So Essentially no yield, anyway. NASDAQ 100 Falling substantially at the end of the week, and Ah, Tesla, Okay, Tesla's high was $900 hit a low this week near 600. Okay, that's that that signals a shift. Is it over Price to 306 times, trailing 12 months earnings um, that actually that number. It's about 110 times next year's earnings. Now, the whole electric vehicle complex is a point of discussion. Okay, so I've got the graph right here. That's interesting. So Steven Norris Super Chuck does the graph in percentage terms. Okay for the year for the year, Okay? Just year today. What percent Tesler? Is actually I guess. Steven ran the charred little sooner but Tesler right at the moment is a minus 6% for the year. There you go. Okay at 666. Right now. Nikola is actually a 25% gain. So these things had a big run. You know, Fisker, um, that's another electric vehicle company with many school revenues you can get. You can get vegan interior for their fiscal car, though. Just so you know. Vegan interior. What zit plastic? I guess that's big, hidden. That's not leather. Okay, But if you're gonna be totally green, you can't use plastic and you can't use leather. So what are we gonna use? I don't know. It's that's it. We could use burlap. We're gonna put that on her lap is renewable. We're gonna put that on the gym. Maybe it's hemp. Hamp. There you go. It's renewable. It's not made of animals. And it's not fossil fuels. Okay, just saying so. The the electric vehicle rally, which we had said My God, look at the revenue and multiples. Okay, Here's what test was worth. $660 billion today. Yep. And G. M and Ford Worth 60 or 70,000,000,001 tent. They have a lot more sales. All right. Thank you. So that you know that was part of this is a lot of these companies don't have sales. So Churchill Capital. Takes us back. Mm. And is merging with Lucid motors. That's right. Loose. It announced. Really what looks like a competitors to test life. Yeah, it's it's a It's a beautiful car. Well, they haven't done it yet. Right. Pre orders. I think now we gotta have Papa Dean weigh in on this one because He takes you He had a piece on the history of the automotive industry. And you know this is back when it was just the big three in the U. S right. GM Ford Ah! Right in Chrysler. Yeah. Thank you. Hey, Uh, but he pointed out at one time, there were literally over 1000 car companies. Yeah. You know, but making one in the garage. I got a car. You know, everybody's making one. I can tell you one. It was a big boom, and it's similar to this Now. Then, of course, that all consolidated Through bankruptcies, recessions and mergers, right? Some did well, some didn't but it is interesting that this kind of led the NASDAQ down, but I was surprised at the end of the week when we're looking at trading right? So the Dow has got a gain of about 1.7%. If you look at the energy sector, that's that's been the most amazing performer. The pipelines are up 12% for the year. Uh, the overall energy sectors about 30%, right? Financials up 12%. Communication services. I guess that's a TNT is not helping. They're down for the year.

WIRED Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks 'Wild Tech' Built Into Perseverance
"So adam. Let's start with a couple of notable things about this rover one. It's collecting and to you. Just wrote a story on wired dot com this week about the cameras on perseverance and how they actually perceive imagery much differently than we do. Tell us about this. And why this is significant for this mission will. there's something almost philosophical. You have to address if you're going to send not people to explore another planet but robots which is you're trying to acquire like sensory information and some of that some of that can be quantified can be sent back as data. You know the numbers for certain for certain analyses that you can send an instrument to do and i. I can talk about some of that but some of it. Is you want to send a robot that can look at stuff that can hear stuff in this case they can sense this world. And then that that information through the sensory organs the mechanical sensor organs the technology. That you send the microphones and the cameras and the sensors instruments and then it has to get home has to get back to us somehow. Us not wired reporters but jet propulsion laboratory and then the whole vast team of humans who process all of that through their own machinery and then it becomes something that they can that they can look at. Its this this. Arc of how data becomes information and then becomes knowledge so we humans send these robots to mars to some extent to learn how to send better robots to mars a lot of the instruments on perseverance. That's the rover that's there now are versions of instruments that went up on other missions and now they kind of the scientists that jpl and are all these universities. Nasa know how to make them work to do more what they wanna do which is to look at their surroundings in ways that that we humans would would. Would i be able to identify easily as looking at stuff to to see things in the colors that human is also see we were standing there and also to look at them multispectral hyperspace literally and other parts of the electric spectrum that human i wouldn't perceive but the eyes of this rover is in scare quotes that i'm making on a on a screen even though this audio medium so that's not helpful at all. The eyes of this rover can see into the little bit into the ultraviolet partway into the infrared. And and also can see x-rays and have an are using a laser project light outward to obliterate some bits of rock. And see what what happens when you do it. And to listen with microphones that that might be more sensitive than human ear. Then all of those things get get reduced transformed or changed in some way into meaningful knowledge so that we can understand more about what what's on this other planet where humans have never been but humans have sent a lot of our stuff. You're saying that each brand has gone up tomorrow. At least the ones that we have had progressively better technology on them with each version. And i think it's kind of interesting that this rover that just went up now. Perseverance is essentially the first rover of the iphone era. Curiosity launched in two thousand eleven and it was designed for a period of five or six seven years before that so the imaging technology on it is very representational of like that time in imaging technology the imaging technology that we have now and the imaging technology that we have on. Perseverance is pardon the pun astronomically better than the tech that we had ten years ago. I mean if you think about like how bad your instagram photos. Were in two thousand eleven. And how fantastic they can be now. You can see just like as far as mobile technology goes and just imaging sensors. The leap has been huge. That's a it's a really interesting observation. I think that's right. Although i will also say that like one of the one of the instruments that i wrote about is called the masked kim z. And so it's this. This binocular camera to cameras linked together left and right eye on top of the tower. That's on the rover so sits up a little. Bit high zina's presume because there was a mass cam on curiosity the z. Has zoom capability and it does a bunch of stuff. It's there to identify targets of interesting scientific potentially interesting scientific value and also to be able to look around and navigation and take pictures and do a whole bunch of other stuff. The the ccd the charge coupled device the optical sensor the to in mass are off the shelf kodak cds and they have the they have in front of them the bear pattern of pixels. The probably gonna get this wrong but like the red green blue. I think that that's that would be familiar. That if you if you could look into your phone you would see it. And then mass games does what. The experiment instrument is take advantage of some capabilities that our phone cameras. Don't really do to do much more. Because because the also can see into the infrared a bit and so if you put the right filters in front of them you can do even more science with them so there is some sense that we send up a camera. That would be the same camera that a lot of people have in their pockets right now sitting on their sitting on their desk. I can get sort of derivative about but there's something important i think in the pictures that are starting to come back already. That include parts of the rover itself and people will describe those as celsius as mars selfie camera taking pictures of itself and and nasa among all agencies is very very good at At its own promotional work saying like. Here's the thing. Here's the picture of the thing we're doing. There are pictures. There's video of the landing which was dramatic but also like the video of the landing. Is there to video of the landing has engineering value but also publicity value. But but i think the calling it. A selfie also includes the recognition of the the. It's not personal because of course it's not a person of the machine hood of the individuality of the humanness of the technology that that we sent that has to do a thing there. That's doing technological work and and seeing mars through a kind of filter that's akin to but slightly different than the filters that if mike if you took that billionaire ticket up tomorrow how you would see through the visor of your of your back suit
Why Are the Leaves Curling on My Lime Tree?
"Also had a question to fred at plan. Talk radio dot com from brandy and brandy says the leaves are curling up on my indoor lime tree any idea. Well no i. i'm going to start with. That's not a surprise I have never grown well. I i grew one spiny old orange from a seed one time and i gave it up because you you could so leather with a don't points on but any event my limit on on Well indoor plants of that nature is pretty significant however One of my clients had a orange tree. It was in a container that was at least Twenty eight to thirty inches wide and maybe about that same height. The tree had a trunk of maybe three and a half inches diameter. She had a great big. I'm gonna call it florida room. He's facing it cetera. Almost ideal it would be on the patio in the shade of a tree Until maybe two hours of sun in the middle of the day then the house would shade it in the evening and on through so my experience is through others and i know she was concerned at one point. This was an orange. But i think it's enough the same that this leaf curling is kind of normal in the wintertime. as growth doesn't stop it slows way down on all plants with the seasons and with temperatures et cetera. Et what dealing with is quite normal now if it does not come out with new leaves here in the next six weeks that are that are also curled. Then there may be something else causing a problem. But i've got a hunch. All she needs to do is keep it at room temperature. Give it plenty of light. Don't fertilize until late march A little bit each couple three weeks. And i mean a little bit. We're we're talking now not trying to push a plant as a green houseman would do to get it bigger for sale. We're talking about sustaining or maintaining plants.
Biden orders airstrikes in Syria, retaliating against Iranian-backed militias
"For the first time since he was inaugurated president. Joe biden tonight has ordered. Us military strike the pentagon says. The president ordered airstrikes in syria around six. Pm eastern time this evening. This is the statement that we got announcing the start from pentagon. Press secretary. John kirby he said quote at president biden's direction. Us military forces earlier this evening conducted air strikes against infrastructure utilized by iranian-backed militant groups in eastern syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against american and coalition personnel in iraq and to ongoing threats to those personnel specifically. The strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control. Point used by a number of iranian-backed militant groups this proportionate response was conducted together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. More on that in a moment The operation sends an unambiguous message. Statement continues president biden will act to protect american coalition personnel quote. At the same time we have acted any deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern syria and iraq. like that statement tonight from pentagon. Press secretary john kirby announcing these us airstrikes eastern syria now in terms of what these air strikes were in response to this month in iraq. There have been three rocket attacks publicly reported in the space of a week the most recent one targeted the us embassy in baghdad. That was three days ago to rockets fired in that attack fell inside the green zone that heavily fortified area around the baghdad embassy there were no injuries From those two rockets on saturday it was four rockets that had hidden air base north of baghdad. That injured one person but last monday it was a more. A more consequential attacked. It was a dozen rockets last monday. That struck the usually peaceful northern iraqi city of bill that killed that attack killed one american civilian contractor and wounded nine other people including several americans at the air bill airport now it has been widely assumed that it was iranian backed militias that were behind these rocket attacks. Iran has denied any direct responsibility but the attacks have been seen in in many quarters as a way of sort of testing. The waters with the new administration should also be noted. That president biden took office just days after the one year anniversary of the us killing. Iran's top revolutionary guard general and a missile strike. Something iran has promised to take retaliation for the other context. That's important here. Of course that the biden administration just a week ago announced that they're ready to hold talks with iran on possibly reentering the nuclear deal that was designed to keep iran from becoming a nuclear power. That was the deal that president obama entered into with iran. That president trump pulled out of as we've been reporting the story trying to understand the scale of these airstrikes night. We have just gotten some tape from the brand new defense secretary. lloyd austin. He spoke with reporters on a flight back to washington. He had been visiting. Us military facilities on the west coast. This was on board the plane back on route to the. Us's coast a target that we would after we know what we get and and we're confident that that target was being used the same shia militia that That conducted the strikes. You're very deliberate about our approach as you would expect this to be You're allowed to it. Occurs the iraqis to investigate develop intelligence and very helpful to us and refining target. You i was season was my recommendation We said a number of times. We will respond At you know on our time line and once again we wanted to be sure that the connectivity and wanted to be sure that can't the right dr sites it was today. Yes issue one defense secretary. Lloyd austin that's tonight we just got in that tape moments ago. Speaking about the first military operation of the biden administration. these airstrikes on iranian backed militias in syria. The administration says they are response to rocket attacks that targeted u s and coalition forces in iraq. You just heard Defense secretary austin there say that it was president who authorized these strikes And he did so this morning per the defense secretary's read out to reporters tonight joining us now. For more is nbc's chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel richard. I didn't expect to have you back on the show so soon after talking with you last night on a totally different matter Joining us on short notice tonight to help us help us through this. Not not a problem. And i was speaking short while ago with a senior. Us official with direct knowledge of this This was a a message to iran and iranian backed militias. According to this official. And the message was that the united states will no longer tolerate harassment will no longer tolerate attacks rocket attacks missiles attacks and particular the attack on your bill of earlier this month was seen as something of a watershed moment so this was a a message. That times have changed that. Even though the president biden wants to negotiate with iran this administration does not want to be bullied does not want to be pushed around is not going to accept the Increased military action that put us personnel and allies at risk. So this was. This was a strong message. It was described to me as the The carrot the stick in the carrot and stick of diplomacy and deterrence that the. Us is offering the carrot. They wanna get back to talks but they also are using the stick for the for the first time today and sending this message. The target that was hit was described as a series of buildings that were used to supply and support these different militia groups. A kind of a border crossing area on the border between syria and iraq. the militias. That operate in this in this area do often cross the border. The fact that the strike took place in syria is also significant. It take some of the pressure off of the government of baghdad. So this was a a very carefully chosen target. It was a calibrated response. Trying to hit specifically the militia that had been targeting the us forces and allied forces and also to send a clear message to iran. That times have changed now. The official said this is also a message to iran and the militias. That things are different than they were. Under the trump administration under president trump and by way. We almost went to war with iran in a very similar circumstance. That that we're in right now. About a year

Israel Begins Phased Reopening To Citizens With Proof Of 2 COVID-19 Shots
"Life might be like as the pandemic lessons. It is vaccinated a higher portion of his citizens than any other country, about a third of had both doses. And this week is real started opening new doors to people who've had their shots. NPR's Daniel Estrin reports that includes places like gyms and the theater. Many businesses in Israel still aren't ready to open. But it's opening night at the first Israeli Indoor theater to put on a play after months of lockdown, Adam thinking and usher at Jerusalem's fun theater checks, tickets and something called a green pass, just taking their green a passport. It's called Check that they have been vaccinated or that there were sick and then the better Israelis one week after their second shot or recovered from the virus can print out a government issued green Pass. With their I d number and a Q R code. This is all very new. The Usher doesn't have a scanner, so he holds up the pass and asked the mostly senior age theatergoers. To recite their I d numbers by heart to make sure no one's cheating. Just make sure to make sure that they're not for you. Someone else's you know, it's not a picture. If you don't have a green pass, you can't see the show. Tear to post Glinski and or REITs. Come here come early. We feel its pioneers mean it doesn't matter what they're performing. We've come It's been way too long Since we were here. Do you feel safer, knowing that everyone in the audience will be with a green past? That's essential. It would have been worrisome if we had to sit in a closed theater with lots of people breathing at us. If we didn't know they both got both vaccines. We've been waiting for people to take responsibility and do that. Not everyone has. Vaccinations are available to all Israeli adults. But 40% of those in their twenties haven't done it. Some think they're healthy and don't need it. Others have heard false rumors of bad side effects. The promise of a green pass is a popular incentive. You can't get into a hotel theater or Jim without one. The vaccination center in the city of Petra Tikva. A D. Sheer nervously waits in line. The only reason that I'm going to get this vaccine is because I want to go to the gym. So it works. The pressure works. Yes, the pressure works way stop by a nearby gym and watch a young man still not fully vaccinated. Get turned back at the entrance. While 50 year old of fear on the El finishes his first wait routine in a year. I feel safe for now. I don't know what will be in 22 years. I want to leave now next door. There are hardly any vaccines for Palestinians in the West Bank in Gaza in Israel, the issue is that some Israelis refused to get vaccinated. One lawyer representing vaccine refuse ear's says some employers threatened to fire them or put them on unpaid leave until they agree to get vaccinated. There was a similar dilemma at the theater director hoodie Ben Moshe says his stage manager, and some actors didn't want to get vaccinated. So he pleaded for us both for us. We want to work. They want to come back and work. Please do it for us, and he says they agreed. Now, an hour before curtain. The director is worrying about something else that scared the death tonight.

Crafting a Conversion Series So You Can Sell with Email
"Lot of the time in digital marketer. The things that we do aren't because we're incredibly intentional. They're out of necessity or we have a strategy that we can't fulfill on because of technology because of some other barriers. So we have to do something else and we do something else. And everyone gives us the benefit of the doubt and the credit that we had this brilliant epiphany from go and we're so put together but it's always fun at least for me to look back at how we have an asset or a process. Now that was created out of oops ryan and perry forgot to write and send emails one day probably about eight years ago. So that's why we're we're looking these templates now and that's why we were able to temple ties them and use them for all of our businesses and and what. I hope you'll to do is walk. You guys through some of the core templates and the conversion series That you can use to deploy in your business and truly built an automated follow up campaign for your business so back to the agenda. We're gonna move onto crafting your conversion series so a couple of wrap up points here. Remember the conversion series for new subscribers is going to be triggered simultaneously with the indoctrination series brand new people when they've opted in. They're going to get their your indoctrination series. But they're also going to go into conversion campaign right because going back to the question that ryan asked in the very beginning of this workshop or or at least the question that he posed in the very beginning of this workshop. You have a subscriber now. What what are you gonna do with the subscriber once you have them going back to the five phases of the follow up machine living here in the conversion phase and green is good red is bad and yellow. Is hoping that we're back on track. So we're right here. New subscriber or old subscriber news going to get the indoctrination campaign and the conversion campaign. Old is not going to get this. They are going to go into a conversion campaign because looking at this and thinking of this As it pertains to the customer value journey once someone subscribed the next most important thing for us to do is to get them convert to convert right. Something magical happens when you when you take someone from being just a subscriber just a prospect to a customer pain customer win when money or time exchanges hands when they give you money or they'll give you their time. They they change in the way that they look at you. They listen to you differently. And when you have a successful transaction they're willing to ascend so going back and thinking in here. After conversion we're focused on ascension that first conversion isn't necessary because we need to move them along from a us a low dollar or a entry point offer to a higher priced. it allows them to trust us with a successful transaction so making sure that our email campaigns and email series are are moving people efficiently through those processes. It's kind of what we're gonna be talking about here again to answer the question that ryan posed in the very beginning of this workshop. The the answers to move them quickly through the convert face as seamlessly as possible by deploying a conversion series. So let's talk just a little bit about conversion series so a conversion series is an interest based triggered campaign sent following a specific action or requests. Remember ryan talked about two types of email sends there's triggered and broadcast definitely the conversion campaign. At least an automated sense because we're building automated follow up campaign is triggered so in someone's requested a specific resource whether it's a lead magnet or whether they've subscribed for awebber opt in for a webinar. That's an interest based triggered campaign that sent immediately. Alright the job of the conversion series is to turn subscribers in the converts twice called the conversion series emails and a conversion series should referenced the previous positive reaction. This is big right. Think about if you just met someone and that personnel ryan talked about a lot about the from like your from information right the first email you send. You should not expect them to recognize you. Even if an amazing job at personal branding or branding your company they are not gonna see that email and remember who the heck you are. You haven't earned that yet. You haven't become important to them especially if they're new subscriber so if you're not tying back to that positive that previous positive action that they took they have no idea why you're emailing them and what the heck you're talking about and we are all really really busy. I bet you. I opted in for five things yesterday that i have. I don't even remember doing right. And i bet you that three of them tomorrow will email me. And i'll unsubscribe from them. Because i won't know what the heck they're talking about. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt that i opt into a lot of things. I don't believe they're spamming me. But i do believe really terrible job at reminding me why in the world they have the right to email me and why should care the way that you overcome that is referenced. The previous positive action and then prescribe the next logical. Step i if we know thinking back to the previous slide if it's interest based we know what they're interested in at least right now that may not be the only thing they're interested in but it is the thing that they were interested enough in to give you their contact information. So that's what they're interested in and you've said something on a page that talk them into giving you their contact information so you now know what they're interested in now remind them the last thing that they did your last interaction and then tell them what they need to do. Next so successful. Conversion emails will overcome or inoculate against known objections and common

Today, Members of Congress honored the memory of Brian Sick. Nick, the Capitol police officer who died after Helped keep them safe during the riots of January 6th that capital riot as well. Some airport incidents involving Trump supporters have since raised new concerns about lawmaker safety. Joining us now with more w T O P National security correspondent J. J Green Hyah JJ your sources have told you there's been some discussion among law enforcement about how to make travel for these members and their staff safer. What have you learned? Hey, Hillary and Sean planes and trains of what we're talking about here and trains or the biggest concern. You've been a number of members of Congress who have been arrest at airports and we've seen that on television. But there's significant security inside the airports and on planes you have Air marshals, but a lot of people use Amtrak and trains to move around and the security situation in Amtrak's very different. Several sources tell me that one of the solutions that's being discussed is plainclothes law enforcement officers on interstate trains like Amtrak that go to some of these places where these members and their staffs have to travel to. And that may be a big part of solving a part of the problem and which is the concern that they have for their own safety. While traveling. Some members have complained about not getting adequate security once they're in their home districts. What's the story behind that? Well, we know that there's been a situation in Michigan for a while, where a lot of people there have done some things that people in other states. Haven't done. For instance, They have been very vocal about trying tow, eliminate the governor there or the secretary of state they're on. There are some people who travel to some district's like that that say they're getting less security there than they're getting here in Washington, so they're having to work out ways in which they can Beef up their security in their home districts. While they deal with the concern about people who may be interested in harming them with their families. It's a real concern, and it does go well beyond Washington back to their home districts kind of branching off off of that, JJ There is a lot of frustration as well about getting information on these threats to members and staff. But apparently you've learned that checking out those threats can be problematic. How that's right. One of the law enforcement sources I was talking to says that a lot of people members staff have been reporting. Threats that they have learned about from social media and people and organizations related to social media. One of the problems have learned with investigating. That is, it's hard to drill down on who is actually behind the threat that comes in on social media. The telephone is one thing and in person sources another thing very easy to identify where the threat is coming from. But a lot of these social media threats are very vague. And that's what the real problem is. For authorities trying to track down those threats from people that may be coming in on social media discussion to be continued, Thank you.

He addressed the Corona virus and was applauded for saying it was something we would get through together at the West Front of the Capitol, John Aaron w. T O P News, the scene of the U. S Capital today, as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in. Could not be more different than the violence and chaos we saw two weeks ago when Donald Trump supporters stormed the place. W T O p National security correspondent J. J. Green joins us Live with the security perspective on this inauguration day and JJ Okay, we have seen all the massive fences. The 25,000 National Guard troops did all that high security do its job today. It did, and it is continuing to do its job. It's going to keep doing its job for while we know that about 6000 of the 25,000. National Guard. Troops are supposed to be on duty here for at least 30 days, so they've been here for a bit, so there's still some weeks to go before they leave, and that's all ah, part of this phased out process or rather process of phasing out security instead of just breaking it all down at once. We know that some of the fences they're going to start disappearing very soon. But quite a bit of security is going to remain around because there's still risk. But this all did its job today and it seemed to do it man magnificently Cici. There's one incident you tweeted about roughly 2.5 hours ago. This involves a Florida man who was arrested for his role in the capital riot, then rearrested today. What is that about? Yeah. The guy's name is Samuel Camargo and he was arrested about the 15th of January because he participated in the riot at the Capitol on was involved in a number of different alleged crimes. And he, like most people were, I believe once they went through the court arraignment process, they were let go on their own recognizance reconnaissance and told to stay. Away from D. C. But he was arrested again this morning A little before nine o'clock headed into DC in a car. There was a be on the lookout posted for him earlier today, and he was arrested again and we have confirmed that mean you can find the documents here. The court documents have been posted. And it's not clear what was going on with you. But we were told that hey, did not have a weapon with him and he had not been threatening in this particular situation, But I think family members have reported something not quite right about some things, he said. As he left ahead into D. C. J. J. You mentioned that they don't want to send all the National Guard troops out of town all at the same time. But do we have a sense of whether some of these security procedures will stick around for a while now? Yeah, the security folks that I've spoken to have said exactly that, John. They're going to be around for a while and there's going to be a phased out process process of taking things away. Piecemeal on the part of the reason for that is because I think all of the law enforcement and security personnel recognized that the situation that got so many people upset and angry Enoughto storm the capital has not died down yet. It's just not Obvious or apparent today because of all the security and the other media focused on other things, But they're still very concerned about people trying to get into D. C As was the case with this gentleman today. They believe that there may have been others, but they were deterred because of the high security profile, But they're going to keep AH, good amount of security around for a while, It will be phased out because they don't want a repeat of what happened on the January on January, 6th. And they want to make sure that everything that is phased out is done in a way that makes sense and not something that's rushed. But there is concern in the future that some of these folks could be rogue elements that come back and strike much like an Al Qaeda or Isis operative. That is true. What we've heard is that there are people that have been on what's left of the social media presence that some of these Extremist groups have encouraging people to engage in lone wolf attacks and to be honest about it. Some of the intelligence reporting that I've seen from some of the agencies suggest that this is a big concern that there may be these kinds of domestic terrorists. Type attacks that are lone wolf attacks on it may not necessarily be around the capital or in front of high profile federal buildings. It could be anywhere or in any state. But that is a concern, and that's a part of the reason why the security is going to be around for a while. All right. W T. OBY National security correspondent J.

"40 down in Fredericksburg. Thanks so much. Emelia 4 41. We have breaking news this afternoon. The U. S government says that devastating hack of federal agencies is likely Russian in origin, and the operation appeared to be an intelligence gathering effort. This assessment came in a rare public statement from the FBI and other investigative agencies Joining us now live to talk more about this. W T o P. National security correspondent J. J Green has been on top of this story from the beginning. JJ. What more can you add to this to start? The FBI is is the lead organization investigating this, and they say that their investigation is focused on four critical lines of effort identifying victims collecting evidence analyzing the evidence, and they're trying to determine further attribution, and they're sharing the results with government and private sector partners to inform operations. Intelligence picture and network defense, and they say this was likely the work of Russian hackers. It was no surprise that they said this, but it's certainly a big deal that they finally have said it. TJ, What is the U. S reaction to this? The reaction is okay. So how far does this go? How many agencies are impacted? How is this going to impact the work voice? Did they try to steal anything? What are they going to do with what they got? What we believe, according to this statement, is that this is an intelligence operation, which suggests that it wasn't just an operation because of curiosity. It was an operation designed to give Russia some kind of advantage to use this operation to as leverage to get whatever it is that Russia wanted. From the U. S in order to give them the leverage they were after. And JJ final question here. What should we be looking for here in the weeks ahead now that the government has come out and said this Well in the weeks ahead, there's going to be a new administration taking control of this unified coordination group. There are lots of people bipartisan in nature looking to get involved in this, So what we should expect is a much more intense effort to get to the bottom of this. And to protect the nation and its people from whatever it is that these Russian hackers were up to. Thank you so much. JJ. You're welcome. W T o p national security correspondent J.

The plan details 87 actions and the one that would do the most to reduce emissions would be making renewable energy, the default electricity service in the county right now, residents have the option to pay more to buy power from wind and solar sources. But most people either are not aware of it, or they just don't want to spend any more. All week long. You've been hearing our series Democracy under duress by W. T o p National security correspondent J. J Green in the serious He's detailed how Russian meddling and disinformation are putting an ever increasing strain on our government. But it's not the on leeway. The U. S has been targeted. Recently, We learned the nation was under attack on another front with a Massive hack that is impacted several areas of the U. S government and even the private sector. J. J. Green joined our Sean and Hillary earlier to talk about the impact of all this. What's so disconcerting about this? Speaking to current and former U. S intelligence sources, the first thing they said that Russia is likely wanted to do was to get into these networks. And quietly and immediately try to move across the networks to see what they could steal what they could learn and what they could change or alter. And just think about what was attacked D O D DHS Energy, State Treasury and who knows how many other agencies they got to all of them were targets targets that they believe that they could get something from or certainly have an impact on the security of the nation. And then there are the private sector companies that work with these agencies. There were targeted as well. So it's not clear what exactly they were after, but we know they were after a lot, and we know they're still at it because this is still ongoing. Experts in your serious have said that Russian intelligence is playing a sophisticated game off chess against the U. S. They may be many moves ahead of us right now. Explain what is it stake if the U. S can't close the gap? More of the same because think about what took place with this. We found out about this about 10 days ago. They've been in these networks for months. And who knows what they have stolen what they've done? And what they did in the time when we didn't know they were in there. So the problem that the experts that I've spoken to have talked about is if the U. S can't close this gap. This repeats. It continues to happen. It continues to exponentially spread and the damage just grows day by day, so they have to figure out how to close this gap. First. They have to track them down and stop them. Shut this down. And then they have to figure out how to stop it from happening again. JJ. What can we expect from the incoming Biden administration when it comes to dealing with this hack from the Russians President elect? Biden said in a statement. He's not going to stand by. He's going to take aggressive action. And now, he said, he's going to do this now. Some sources that I've spoken to Hillary and Sean have said the U. S. Needs to think about a physical response. Not just a cyber response, which is normal for something like this, But they need to think of sending a strong message to Russia using a different tactic and a physical response, meaning of Connecticut war footing of physical war footing stance. Is a very interesting concept. It's also a dangerous concept. But some say this is what has to happen because Russia has done what is the equivalent of an act of war against the U. S. That is w T.

And the federal law enforcement sources that I've spoken to do not expect much of a showing from them or any of these other groups that may be legitimately associated with white supremacists activities. The thing that I've noticed on social media and some other sectors is that their rhetoric is very hot, but the reality of what they're trying to achieve is the exact opposite there, not a lot of people biting on this there a lot of people following them on social media, but they're a lot of people that air Doubtful about the wisdom of coming here to do this And certainly, as I mentioned before, there's gonna be a lot of resistance, not just from the law enforcement organizations around, but they're going to be a lot of people already here to celebrate the election.

"Election day. 2020 and U. S National Security is at perhaps one of its most vulnerable points because of a hotly contested election that could lead to days of uncertainty. Joining us live with more on this is w t. O p national security correspondent J. J. Green OK, JD. I think folks are wondering why is our national security at such risk on this election day? Yeah, Mark. Here's why this is the most important election and probably the most hotly contested in a long time. This comes against the backdrop that foreign actors of pulling out all the stops to interfere. So what does that mean for national security? It means that all the national security apparatus or dialed in and focused on this, our other areas left uncovered. Not likely, but it's possible. The complete focus isn't their terrorism espionage cyber attacks Attacks against critical critical infrastructure, the food supply, maybe the water supply or perhaps something we haven't thought of Then, after the polls close, it's not going to be over After that international incidents that may need US national Security focus may not get the full focus because of the uncertainty here over the election. Yeah, we've been hearing a lot about concerns about Postelection violence. What is the reality here? J. J. Well, the sources that I've spoken to are not buying into that They're not waving off post election violence, but they're putting it into context. It could happen, but not so much because people are upset with the outcome. But possibly, they say, because of underlying issues like race guns. Other issues that are normally a part of Of daily life here. Bottom line were being worn not to overblow the coverage because that in itself could trigger unrest because the media blowing up a minor issue into a national story could prompt people to take action. Well, one or national security officials. What do they need to do to really keep all of this under control for the next day or week or weeks Strike Mark. This is the key question, National security officials and, more importantly, the former national security officials that I've spoken to say the key for them is to stay focused. Stay in their lanes, Remember their missions, keep their eyes and minds open to new threat vectors and new sources. And realize that foreign actors know without a doubt right now that U.

Pro Trump camp that is disappointed if he loses or whether it's the anti trump camp disappointed if he wins, And so I believe that we're going to see violence related, especially if the election is close and contested.

You know, we saw ah, fairly violent response from anarchists at the inauguration.
