It feels like cyber attacks are happening. Almost every daily still figuring out the impact of the solar winced tack which was one of the largest cyber attacks in history. But the problem seems to be getting even worse. Hackers breached. New york. City's mta back in april a few weeks ago. The colonial pipeline was the target of ransomware attack and attack shutdown. Jbs foods the world's largest meets flyer justice week while we're used to seeing cyber-attacks go after big targets the fact the hackers are now going after food. Supply is particularly scary because sarah morrison has been covering the. Jbs attack is here to explain. I- sarah thanks for joining us and thank you so it tells what happened last day. According to jbs foods was this the work of a vegan terrorist organization. Well i don't know the dietary half of the people behind it. But i don't think that that was the primary motivation we basically got something similar to the clinical pipeline attack. Which is ransomware. Shut down some of a major company systems which causes disruption to those companies. Provide with of hype. Obviously it was oil in this case. It's me and just very briefly what ransomware does is. It's just mel. Were that will encrypt the targets. The victim systems so they can't use them and then. The attackers basically demand a ransom to unlock those systems. So if you're a business that needs access restored soon as possible or if it will cost you more to lose time than the ransom costs. You're just gonna pay. And so j s like you said is one of the world's largest meat producers. It has operations in several countries in the united states and it systems in and north america and australia affected here. So looks like is that it caused all of its facilities to shutdown australia. Slaughterhouses were shut down and one canadian facility was also The good news is most of them. Appear to be back within a few days that doesn't appear to have caused or will cause much of a disruption here for the average consumer. at least. Do we have any idea of who is behind the attack or how much the ransom was exactly. So the fbi just confirmed that. It's a group very similar to the one that attacked the pipeline. Which is sort of russia eastern european linked business which sells like ransomware as the service they provide ransomware and i think ransom collection sort of operations two partners for a fee. I haven't said how much the ransom they demanded is. The gbs actually never even said it was a ransomware attack. It was the white house that said it And then obviously they haven't said if they've paid or how much was demanded colonial pipeline was. Apparently they did pay about four and a half million dollars which was in bitcoin. So it's probably worth a little less now but the again for this particular one. We don't know yet so it could be a state level actors sort of like the russian hackers who went after the two thousand sixteen election. But you're actually saying it might be some kind of startup. yes it's believed to be. Basically a criminal organization that offers ransomware services to people who who buy them So a business. And why do you think we're seeing a rise in these kinds of cyberattacks right now so in terms of ransomware. There's probably a couple factors here in. Ransomware has been a thing for several years. crypto has made it easier to get these ransoms and not have been traced back to the attackers over time. These ransomware operations have gotten much more sophisticated. Now as i said they're like businesses and they make money you know the ransoms are getting paid. So obviously that's a big vacation to continue to ask for them. And i think the pandemic and more people working from home is given attackers like more vectors to attack. And you know. Obviously we're seeing them become more emboldened than attacking more visible targets that we hear more about and when these attacks happen like the pipeline attack the attack in the industry public transit who takes the hit the consumer. Are we going to end up paying more for steak now or is it the a company that has to pay for both it really depends you know when it's a small business. The attacks are they can be devastating to the business when it's a large corporation or government system. You know the hit is almost certainly going to be taken by the customer. The taxpayer you know one way or the other. But even you know When hospitals are attacked you could see affects on the patients if their appointments or delayed or cancelled with this particular attack. There was Jbs employ. You told cnn. Yoshi and get paid for the days that are plant was shut down and she lives paycheck to paycheck so obviously she would take a big hit as well. We're do things stand with. Jbs now are they going to start up operations again again. We don't know if they've paid the ransom or not but they've said we'd gotten things back or we will be getting things back online pretty quickly probably by the end of today thursday They said you know we had a plan in place for this backup systems. Where restoring them. But we don't know if if they paid a ransom or how much that might have helped them get things back online. The story line is starting to sound so familiar. Because i feel like we're hearing about a new one every week. Is there anything that can be done to stop these attacks in the future. The four some of these high profile ones. We would hear that the best targets were the ones that you either knew would be easy to attack like smaller cities towns businesses and it didn't have good cybersecurity in the first place and then the healthcare industry was another one. Because it's so urgent you get the systems back online. And they're more likely to pay the ransom so you know if no one paid a ransom ever like that would take a lot of the financial motivation out of this. But that's easier said than done. Obviously these places you can buy insurance for tax but that doesn't stop them from happening in the first place just helps you out. If they do so in terms of what can be done to prevent them. We have the the fbi investigating them. Something happens there. Apparently biden is going to be talking to tuten to say maybe discourage these attackers who are apparently coming from your country and then the white house yesterday sent out a memo to i think business leaders telling them they needed to really step up and protect their systems and has some tips biden issued an executive order right after the colonial pipeline attack but that was actually response to the solar winds attack on the on the federal government which was not a ransomware attack. Actually and that just had like very steps to measures the federal government was going to be taking to protect systems and requirements for private sector companies. That do business with the federal government those apply to the companies that don't do business but the federal government so this is a problem we've known about for years. It seems it's getting worse. And i mean if it was easily solved would have been by now. Obviously it's not well crypto currency like bitcoin is part of the problem. And maybe making the problem worse. Why not just regulate bitcoin. Well i mean how if it's a global currency so one country ours you even. The united states tries to regulate it. You can't control what the rest of the world does i mean. It's pretty much like internet. Regulations what applies in one. Country is is just not going to apply to others so pretty get around those sarah. Thanks for joining us and explaining all this. It sounds like there's going to be the opportunity for a lot more cybersecurity coverage in the future as always you can follow all the sierras work at recode.

"Greetings welcome to unsupervised learning. I'm daniel and this show explores the intersection of security technology and society and things about what might be coming next every monday. There's a news and analysis episode that condenses five to twenty hours of breathing in analysis into a fifteen minutes summer as well as regular essays interviews and book reviews cover specific topics goals to give you a concise curated updates on the most interesting things happening in the world and to explore ideas. But give you something to think about. Prepare you for what's coming next alright. Welcome to episode two eighty three having a good start to the week wherever you are till i could. It's june first and we're about to have some serious summer. Kickin leeson the northern hemisphere in company interested in appearing in the us l. discovery section as a sponsored discovery. You cannot reserve a spot for that or summer and fall of twenty twenty one over to daniel dot com slash sponsorship. Alright starting off a security news. The fbi says the county ransomware gang disable. The irish healthcare system has also gone after the healthcare and first responder networks in the united states. They say they've hit over four hundred organizations worldwide. And at least two hundred ninety in the us clothing police departments and one one dispatch centers and others researchers at georgetown university used. Gt three to generate disinformation climate. Change in foreign affairs they were able to tangibly sway real people's opinions they showed people. Gpt generated content on topics like the f. ghanistan troop withdrawal and us sanctions against china for example and they were able to double the number of people that were against a given policy that is prediction ordinary doubling the impact basically doubling the number of people. You know in one direction or another for a tangible thing like a survey which you know could be an elliot's voting and this is all tex generated by cheapie t three now. They did mention that. It was curated so there is still a little bit of handling. This is what we've heard from everyone dealing with. Gd three so. If it makes a bunch of text for you like ten different things you might pick the best ones out of it or you might discard the worst ones so there is a little bit of human interaction but It's yeah it's able to produce some really really scary stuff. The solar winds group is going after think tanks with a new backdoor called native zone. Have i been phoned. Has gone open source and the project is getting help from the fbi and pulling known compromise passwords new flaws in bluetooth allow attackers to impersonate legitimate devices allowing manned middle attacks series of cds have been released around the flaws and impacted vendors including android cisco and others are working on patches. Microsoft released a tool called counterfeit for testing the effectiveness of a obey security systems. Facebook says russia's still the biggest player and disinformation on the spot for continuous attack. surface management. chasm is becoming a real space now. There are tons of players getting into this from vulnerability management players to small startups. That come from the bug bounty community. I'm pretty intimately close to a number of these in. I've got my own analysis here and the links in the newsletter and also the article which was by Really cool guy also used to be at like me Gunter omen guess so should definitely check that out to really cool space. I'm glad it's finally got a name. Seems like this name is sticking attack service management. I thought it was going to be a but it looks like it's. Cas the un report says a drone may have carried out the first known autonomous attack. That killed a human last year. The attack was in libya and was made possible by an object recognition system that does not require connectivity. Once it's received a target so this allows us to travel hunt and carry out an attack without being given explicit instruction wants to target is found. And i believe it's like basically a bomb is on the front of the drone so just dive bombs into the and you know intends to kill them and daniel suarez warned us about this in his book. Kill decision which is all about autonomous drones and Scared the crap out of me. When i read that and yet here it is happening. I'm sure this has probably happened before. This is just a documented case. Perhaps the first documented cases in this report but yeah. This is this is the future. Were signing up for danish media saying that denmark helped the. Us spy on. European politicians including angle merckel vulnerabilities. Hp fixes oday in systems insight manager siemens peel cs have some newly discovered vulnerabilities triple has released security updates in vm-ware center per vm. Where v. center has a critical artsy. Jbs foods the world's largest beef and poultry producer with two hundred and forty five thousand employees around. The world has shut down production due to what they're calling a cyber attack which most people are saying is probably ransomware crowd. Strike e y are uniting to work on organizational resiliency elect out of always been into resilience the way to go as opposed to prevention or in addition to prevention salt security raises seventy million to do api security in material security raises forty million to address email hacks through integration with identity protection services like duo an octa technology news. Microsoft is teasing a new version of windows and the announcement could be soon. Maybe even this week supposedly there will be major changes and updates to the app store. I am hoping it has fewer ads. The windows ten add situation. This pretty gross to me. Microsoft has released a tool that lets you write basic code using the power. Gbd's three so you could tell things like a fine meal customers that start with the letter this. And it'll basically chew some sequel or sequel like code. Ai system looked at forty years of scientific papers and predicted. nineteen out of the twenty most impactful publications. Then it looked at current work picked fifty recent papers that thinks will be among the top five papers in biotech in the future tells like a dream tool for investors. This thing actually works. Get a worry about over fitting when you look backwards though. Twitter appears poised to release twitter. Blue it's two dollars and ninety nine cents a month subscription tier or the features supposedly will be the ability to undo a tweet within a certain timeframe. i think the world's fastest supercomputer came online at lawrence. Berkeley national lab said he built cray computers with six thousand one hundred and fifty nine invidia a one hundred tents or core. Gop us and they intend to use it to build a massive three d map of the universe. I'm sure among other things. Peleton is building new. Four hundred million dollar factory in ohio tusla has turned on. Its in car camera. So they can monitor drivers while they're using autopilot designed to monitor the driver for inattention. And the data's supposed to not leave the car at all which is good to hear but devils and details as usual tusla's also being fined in europe for throttling charging speeds and tusla's cars without radar sensors and they kind of made that change and suddenly started shipping cars without those sensors so they said it could be kind of a bumpy ride unlike. That's a little bit scary like if you just suddenly can't get certain sensor data seems like it would directly affect to safety but it is just weird combination to make such an abrupt change and then also say oh. Yeah it could be a little crazy while we sort things out. Not what you wanna hear from so on so closely tied to safety but yeah. They're basically moving to shirley working off camera systems or primarily working off camera systems as opposed to read our human news china's now allowing citizens to have up to three kids just to be clear. It was illegal to do so before now because the government can tell you how big your family can be. So i guess thank you. I mean what's next like freedom of expression though. Be crazy. This reminds me of saudi arabia. Love like what do you want a cookie. You're not supposed to get credit for returning rights to people that weren't yours to take away in the first place. The study by public health india says two doses of covid vaccine pfizer or astrazeneca are effective against the indian variant. But you are significantly more vulnerable if you only take one dose so it has to be both no word in this report on moderna but i'm hoping it has similar efficacy against that strain. China's maintained an artificial sun at one hundred and twenty million degrees celsius or over one hundred seconds. Which is a new world record. I'm super impressed. But i wish this wasn't the country that shrugs when they're satellites fall out of the sky. Housing inventories down. Thirty seven percent over year-over-year only san francisco and york have a bumping inventory. So it's actually the opposite right. Low inventory means you know high demand more inventory means less. People wanna should be obvious that lumber prices are up three hundred percent and sixty three percent of one sample. i think this is from like a redfin. Study had bid on houses that they've never seen sixty three percent. They bid on a house that they've never even seen and staying with that theme median. Home prices are up nineteen percent over a year ago and are at the highest point since nineteen ninety nine. You see nineteen ninety nine and you think does that mean we're about to crash i. I'm not sure that does at this point. I think the whole pandemic thing just made people want to be very comfortable at home and part of that means not being kicked out by a landlord. I'm speculating there's probably lots of reasons for this happening right now. But i'm not sure this is going to decline anytime soon. And we're at an all time. High number of smokers worldwide at one point one billion rates are dropping especially in the west but population growth in china in india. The sla to overall numbers being higher than ever an estimated. Eight million people died from smoking in two thousand. Nineteen curious to compare that to that was twenty. Nineteen twenty twenty but curious how that compares to what the covid number swell ended up at not that it matters content ideas and analysis convincing in belonging. I think people's opinions are often tied to their identity. Which is why. It's so hard to change people's minds when you're arguing with someone think about what's at stake for them if they were to see things your way. It's often more than actually willing to pay an s. The same thing about yourself as well. Would you lose a sense of belonging to a group if you change your mind about certain topics next one here lab leak theory insanity so this loudly theory stuff is completely insane to me so kind of walk with me here on this. So there are many labs. I around fifty says from wikipedia article. That's in the notes here that deal with extremely dangerous pathogens and that's fifty that are the level four level four laps and it's widely known within the space that we have internationally a problem with lab the safety not only have we had many leaks accidents all over the world. This is not a china problems. Not an asia problem like there's tons of labs and there's been many incidents in the us and in the uk bright over the last couple of decades in experts in the space have been blowing the whistle about this issue for years screaming at full volume that this is a problem. They write papers about it. They give interviews. They give talks and they were doing all this before it and they still are now. So if this thing actually came out of the lab in china which you know who knows what the actual numbers are on that sir. The actual chances are probability of this. I i'm guessing. I've no idea i'm not an expert in this and experts. Don't seem to agree. I'm guessing there's very low chance five to ten percent chance right now which is massive compared to people who don't think it's possible but it's Very small overall anyway. It doesn't actually matter if it did. Come out lab in china. you know. That would be bad. But it's not the news that most people think it is similar leaks have happened in the us and the uk and the supposed- news that fallacy may have funded the lab that the leak might have come from bo yet. He's been involved in virus. Research for decades is one of the people slinging around money for virus research and is closely tied to how the money actually gets distributed for that research right so this is like finding out that a plane crash somewhere and some guy some money to a related place to research air travel safety you can still have. Even if the point of the research is safety right another analogy would be testing bulletproof vests if you donate money to a place that does research on bulletproof s snot conspiracy of someone gets injured during live testing of one of those s. Instead it's just like a plane crash. It's another instance of what we're trying to avoid and a call to double down on safety so yeah big conspiracy. The guy who's famous for virus research sent some of his virus research organizations money to among others. One of the labs that does wait for it. Virus research like the biggest non-story ever and that's assuming that even did come out of china like the. There's just nothing to be learned here other than in. Ntsb type investigation where we're like. Yeah how do we stop this. Formatting notes just got done rereading practical them by june hill and redoing basically my entire vim confed which is super fun for me I started this journey by learning a ton more while writing this new vim article so i decided to reverse the book from genial and take notes again This like years ago when it first came out and Yet ended up. Changing everything also ended up looking at is h configure as one does and like ended up redoing. All of that as well. She'll like this. Is like the tech version of meditation retreat for me or spring cleaning or something absolutely love optimizing i shell and vim can fix reminds me of like walking into a bookstore and you smell that paper or something. I know just feels like endless self enhancement and you know that in the year. So you're going to do it again. You're gonna find new tools like for example z presto was like the thing for me for a long time and i got off of ohm is e. s. h. and now back to own is h. Because it's got just more momentum behind it and same with the migration to deal vim over regular them like it just keeps evolving. And every time. I tear up my note cards and write new ones. Just feel cathartic and vinci Working on it's going to be based on gradual steps. I'm really excited about this one. I'm basically taking vince functionality and breaking it into chunks and then ordering them by difficulty so it might end up having like fifteen or twenty levels or maybe even more but each one will be very small and have a small amount to learn within it. Some really excited about revealing the depth of them. But in an approachable. Tiered sort of way. So you can stop at like level three or four or five or whatever and still be infinitely beyond most people in the power of using an editor but he can go to level thirteen or maybe go level twenty or twenty five or whatever however many ways i can break this thing down into chunks but the currently i think have the most popular vim tutorial if you just type typing tutorial into Guler whatever bore start page or whatever browser us or search engine so the goal with this one is to surpass that one and make it even more popular in about a year or two whenever seo kicks in so that is exciting looking forward to having that done. It was getting close to being done. And then i just like. I don't know i kicked over a rock and found rox that had a vim scribbled. All over them and Yeah it's been rabbit hole. And i don't know to be a couple more weeks before i get this thing out. Now have to replace everything just took notes on and like reorganize that along with all my other knowledge. Anyway this is going to be cool Currently going through this free online courses at mit called the missing semester of your see us education pretty cool starts off with some shell stuff this the other reason i got involved in all the shell stuff all comes at once somehow and i just renewed my audible annual twenty four book subscription for the third time in less than twelve months. Pretty sure read way over sixty bucks so far this year and one of our community members. tim leonard has built himself a doja bego which he basically had a bunch of signing and painting done i believe and put it on his This winnebago he's like driving it from east texas across the country. Think he's over by the grand canyon right now by just took a vacation and he said he's getting tons of honks waves and He's supposed to have like a jarkko sir. People can actually sent him does. But i'm not sure that worked out. Discovery so sponsored discovery of this week. Thinks canary tokens most companies. Discover that they been breached way too late canary fixes this just three minutes to set up no ongoing overhead nearly zero false positives and you can detect attackers long before they dig in checkout. Why fiscal vm. And cloud-based canaries are deployed and loved on all seven continents. This is the actual copy from the webpage. I ever took it from there. And i guess that's good copy but the way i break down this product is like it's very low overhead and you get to see attacker activity on your network. Because they're they're touching tokens. That should not be touched in a legitimate way right so essentially you have like files sitting around that. No one would normally find unless they were doing something malicious. And that's what makes us thing so powerful especially if you don't have great logging in alerting and centralize logging stuff like that which a lot of startups and small medium sized companies don't have anyway. That's thinks i've been a huge fan of them forever and continue to be got. A cool thing here is called. Is this a cyberattack. It's a public service website. That indicates whether something fave heard about in the news was an actual cyberattack attack in the teaser. one here at the colonial attack was not cyberattack. Everyone's calling the cyberattack sounds cool whatever cyber pearl harbor a lot of people are saying stuff like that about two colonial one because it was an oil pipeline because it shut down because there were shortages bolt. everyone's like doom and gloom turns out. It was just ransomware on the it network and the there. Some dispute Disputes about this. But bottom line is looks like they just turned off everything because they couldn't actually charge people for the oil that they were selling because the it network stone was was not an attack on the actual oil pipeline. So no not a cyberattack. Privacy tech worker explains how being at his mom's house for a week resulted in him receiving ads for her toothpaste and he breaks it down in like a massive twitter.

Cyber Security Today Week in Review for June 11, 2021

"Welcome to cybersecurity today. This was the week in review edition for the seven days ending june eleventh on howard solomon contributing reporter on cybersecurity variety world canada dot com in a few minutes guest commentator dina davis vice president of research and development at arctic. Wolf will chat with me. But i still look at some headlines from the past week once again. It was a week when ransomware took center stage. The us justice department and the fbi supplies the world by announcing the seizure of just over half of the bitcoin that colonial pipeline paid to the dark side ransomware gang last month dining. We'll talk about that. Well i'll take a look at the testimony of the pipelines chief executive before the us congress. It is looking into lessons learned from the ransomware attack that forced the pipeline to temporarily close causing panic at gas stations. By the way by an amazing coincidence the morning of the first day of the pipeline hearings there was a ransomware attack on an online service called i constituency used by some members of congress and other politicians for publishing digital newsletters the american division of the meat packer. Jbs foods said late wednesday that had paid the equivalent of eleven million dollars to the ransomware gang that attacked it at the end of last month while the majority of its facilities were back in operation when it decided to pay the company paid to ensure there were no unseen issues. The are evoke ransomware. Group was behind the attack which caused plans to close in the us and australia and shifts to be cancelled at a plant in canada. Hackers always take advantage of the news headlines to launch phishing attacks. One of the latest scams tries to take advantage of increased worries sparked by the colonial pipeline attack targeted. Emails have been going to employees saying a software update is needed because of the ransomware attack against colonial pipeline and other organizations the lincoln the message leads to the installation of malware in this country. Three more canadian firms were recently listed as being hit by ransomware group. Called asya is threatening to release stolen data from them. I haven't been able to confirm this. So i'm not gonna name the firms but they are allegedly small or medium-sized businesses. In ontario newfoundland and quebec. Three new ransomware groups have emerged. One group is called prometheus and claims to have ties to the are evil ransomware gang prometheus as published data. It says has been stolen from mexican. Government departments a gas company in ghana and oklahoma cardiovascular center and others another new group is called grief it claims to have stolen data from five organizations including a county alabama and affirm in mexico. The third new group has been dubbed black cocaine by researchers its first victim appears to be a financial services company in india separate from ransomware the fbi and australia revealed a huge sting operation against criminal groups that involved controlling a cell phone messaging service crooks thought would secure law enforcement agencies and a number of countries have arrested eight hundred people and impounded. Cash cryptocurrencies drugs and luxury vehicles. At one of the incidents that dinan. I are going to be discussing. I'm going to bring in dina davis now. Hi there how you doing. I'm doing great. That's wonderful the big news. This week was the us striking back at the ransomware group that hit colonial pipeline last month. Tell us what happened. Yes really surprising. Like i was quite shocked because it's usually not very easy to get back crypto. Coin so let's give a little bit of background here so we all remember where we're at if we can all remember colonial runs the largest american supply pipeline for refined petroleum products. Like that and a name of about five hundred million liters a day of various types of fuel and the move them all the way from texas to north northeastern us. So on may sixth they suffered a ransomware attack and it impacted. The company's it structure ultimately caused the company to halt all their pipeline operations for about five days and to try and get back online quickly. Colonial paid five million dollars in bitcoin to the eastern european hackers on may seventh that was to get the decryption keys and the decrypt tool that would allow them to decrypt all their data and get back to running but sadly the decrepit was really slow. So it didn't help them very much and they still pretty much had to recover all their data and now they're out five million dollars so in a surprising turn of events on june seventh the fbi announced they were able to recover the more majority of that. Bitcoin page the hackers which seems kind of crazy. I like. We hear all the time that it's like this anonymous decentralized. So how'd how does the fbi get their hands on that well. Bitcoin has to be stored in a wallet. Bitcoin as like a computer file and files always have to be stored someplace so they're stored a digital wallet on an app or a computer and people can send bitcoins two different digital wallets. But the only way you get access to the bitcoin is if you have the password for that wallet so the fbi was to get that password. How did they get that password. They're not telling us but it's important to note that the fbi got the access to the affiliate wallet and not the dark side strect while it. Now what does that mean. So dark side provides a platform for its affiliate or users to do ransomware attacks on other people and then dark side takes a cut of the money that they make. So there's money in possibly at least two crypto wallets here one for dark side in one for the affiliate in the fbi was able to get the password for the affiliates wallet. Now one working idea that. I've heard in the media. A little bit is at the affiliate is actually a teenager and didn't really know what they were doing. Maybe and so maybe that was an easier target for the fbi to get the password back but we have no idea what the fbi did to get that password. But that's basically that's what happened and one sad note here. Is that even though they were able to get about eight five percent of the bitcoin back. The value of bitcoin is dropped over the last month. So it's only worth about fifty percent of what it was when they purchased it one new story that i saw quote an expert as guessing that the server were the attacker stored his private key. Information was accessed yet could eat which suggests that the hacker in this case committed a failure of security hygiene somewhat ironic because there was a failure of security hygiene which which actually got them into Colonial in the first place yeah. It wasn't a failure of the bitcoin infrastructure. No no criminals have to actually make a mistake for any of us able to recover bitcoin from them. They have to do something like that person has done like leave it on a server somewhere leaves some other kind of crumbs are trails for law enforcement to follow right and that raises the question of whether this can be done again. Only if the criminals make a mistake again you would seem that way. Yeah you mentioned the problem With the decrypt after this week the chief executive of colonial pipeline testified over two days before the us congress about the back and the impact and what the the us government could do about ransomware attacks and one of the things he said was it. Wasn't that the decrepit didn't work but one of the things he said was the company and he said. The company had good backups. But he said it took time for the company to go through the backups. To make sure they hadn't been infected before they were restored and that was one of the reasons why they figured they had. Better pay the ransom. Yeah that's true and then but it turned out that the decrypt her wasn't made for high performance environments is in quickly decrypt eating hundreds and thousands of files. You know they built it to decrypt the file. They didn't like tum. Is it for sure right. So it turns out that it wasn't any faster than them sifting through their data from backup right right. I listened to four hours of testimony over two days before the us The senate and the house of representatives about this attack. And i came away with more questions than answers. Most of the talking was done by A pipeline ceo. Joseph flung he was pretty proud of the way his company responded to the attack with employees shutting the pipeline due to worries about how extensive the infiltration might be nay. Shut it down. Within an hour of getting the ransom note and packed. He turned away a question about what lessons learned about what the company might have done wrong insisting that the company had it defenses but unfortunately to hackers got through. He did confirm that. The hacker initially gone in through a legacy victim using a username and password that had been created by an employee. After this incident it was discovered that that credential was among those that were stolen from another hack now official from mandaeans which did the investigation testified that it assumes the password. The employees used this password on another website. And that's where it was hacked from that. This wasn't a phishing attack that the employees felt for. They also said that the the password wasn't a simple password that could be guest so the mandy official when you testified called the creation of this account a nece configuration because it wasn't believed that the account on the vpn was enabled. And that's why multifactoral antic ation wasn't turned on for that credential nandy and said doesn't know if this miss configuration would have been picked up by a vulnerability scan done. What does all that mean to you. Yeah so what about last part there is fancy speak for got we had credentials sitting there being used by only one person. Don't worry only one person had the password and it was a good password. Unfortunately it wasn't the only time that the user had used that password account takeover hits again. It's so common rate. You use the same password more place even if it's an amazing password and then it shows up on a list someplace on the dark web which is exactly what happened here in the hackers were able to use that to get into the system. So even if you think it's disabled there's no reason for that username and password to still be provisioned. Just take it off. Just get rid of it and you know this is hard right because craft builds up in your systems and your it systems like. I'm sure there's lots of people in companies that have forgotten about an account they created. And it's just sitting there right. So that's the importance of doing audits auditing through all of your accounts that you're in. It everything all the user names and passwords. I mean you're not actually auditing. Those things for you're auditing. What accounts have been provisioned to whom they've been provisioned and are they still using them and doing that. On a regular cadence like quarterly is a great idea because it takes away some of these older accounts that maybe didn't have. Mfa put on them because they were older on their d. provisions or whatever but it just shows like. There's lots of tiny cracks that the hackers can get into right here. Something mysterious one of the members of congress asked cloning so was there. Was there any record of this password in colonials documents and i think that they'd met was password records and the answer was no right. I mean it was one person's password. The hackers didn't find it in some other documents as far as i can see. This is what makes a mystery and as i said. There are a whole number of unanswered questions. Which is how did this account get created. And why wasn't it in the colonial password management system. So those are great questions my guests and because they said legacy. Vpn there's lots of systems that you set up bb before you have a system that holding all of that together for you and it could have been missed so there's so many easy ways. This happens to accompany who's already trying hard. This kind of thing can happen to anyone. So it's important to do these audits and really make sure you understand all the systems that are being used one major problem here's shadow. It where people have created accounts are created vpn's or created other things behind. It's back so it's not in their registry. There are a whole bunch of things that we still don't know about this attack. It wasn't made clear whether colonial knows who the employee was who set up this account. Like were they in. It with a manager with somebody just fooling around. Was it a test account. Y was this account setup and the thing is how did the attacker know that. This particular credential was for the colonial. Vpn because in the testimony that there was there was no mention that this was a brute force attack and where the attacker had hundreds of credentials and they tested them against vpn. And just got. I have no idea. I know that the hackers often do a lotta thing beforehand. Maybe they found the username and password on the web. Someplace went looking into that person's background. Maybe they were able to get onto their computer. Who knows who knows how they did it. They definitely had to have some bits of information to know that that how was that. Vpn exposed how did they even know what to do. I think we're going to need to wait for more details for some perspective. On ransomware a security company call rent dory released a survey of companies this week and they found that nearly half of respondents had been hit by ransomware in the past twenty four months and also nearly half of those who were attacked said that their firm paid a ransom. Then it will. What did you think this report. I was pretty interesting. I'm not surprised by the numbers. How accurate is it is it. Is it really fifty percent of all the companies or when they saw the survey and the ones. That didn't really didn't ignore it. We're the ones that got hit by ransomware. Wanted to tell their story within societies. The problem with these surveys right like what was the base of people that a hit. In any case it does show you the prevalence of ransomware and how much it is. Actually being used to make money illegally. One thing i found interesting in the report was made a lot of sense right like after suffering from ransomware attack eighty seven percent of decision makers changed their security strategy and like. Why isn't that a hundred percent even even if you had good even if you had good security measures before you still got hit by ransomware so there's certainly some things you could be doing some place a little bit better so the fact that that wasn't one hundred was a little bit perplexing to me. And then it made sense where they started to focus afterwards like in prevention resiliency visibility disaster recovery all that kind of stuff those are all pretty straightforward places to go look to get better at having stronger security. This is one of the problems. I have with surveys. That a security companies put out because a company can can legitimately say we change certain procedures but we change our strategy. Yeah before we leave ransomware. I want to mention a column that i saw on. The website called dark reading and where the author argued. That ransomware isn't a problem that. It leaders face that it's the symptom of the real problem. Which is that. it can't control computer systems. They should be using the concept of least privilege access. Software shouldn't be allowed to make arbitrary changes like encrypting files. One argument is that the author made was operating systems. Shouldn't allow unrestricted access to applications so for example in the mac. Os big sewer. Applications can't right to the documents folder and of course the documents folder is what ransomware attackers want to steal from the. That's where they want to encrypt. What did you think of this argument. I think there's like so many valid points. They also mentioned. You know you'll see a lot of ransomware on an ipad or a chromebook and that's because those systems are locked down right. You can't do a lot on an ipad unless there's already an app for it. You can't build stuff on their experiment with it. And so the question really becomes. What does the everyday user really need in a computer. And i'm sure that like i have no survey on this but my guess would be that eighty percent of people just need a computer that allow them to use the apps. They need to use so install apps them and go forward. They don't need the ability to write scripts or write code or do fancy things and so where we should be. Moving as a society really is giving computers or or letting people buy computers. That will help them stay safe. And the people that need computers where you can do everything like software developers and whomever else they get the ones that have really lots of access and then they have to be really careful right but for example. If you're like hr person in the company were using something that didn't allow any execute to run outside of approved apps only when they opened resumes. They wouldn't get finished so i think it's a fantastic idea these. It's hard to implement because of how we're used to a world in which you can do anything you want on your computer and we certainly don't want to be in a world where only corporations get to decide what you can do but having choices right and being able to give those options for corporations to give those options to people in their corporations right to me is always in mentioned this to you in the article. It's always about the principle of least privilege. You should have the least amount of privilege you need to do the job or do the thing you want to do on the computer and everything else has to be asked for. And if that's the case then a lot of this ransomware gets shut down. So it's it's good. It's a little bit of a pipe dream because we have to get everybody to move in that direction and it's expensive but i don't think we're as far off as you might think because of things like ipads ipads crooks really. There's a lot less you can do on them. But they serve the needs of most of the population. The other big news of the week was the snare set by the fbi and australian law enforcement to catch crooks using what they thought was a secure text messaging service. Tell us about that. Yeah this is so awesome. This is like this is going to be a movie one day. I'm pretty sure it's going to be moving so back in twenty eighteen the fbi and the australian federal police that afp. They took down this secure chat app. Phantom secure and lots of criminals were using that at the time it allowed for like secure encrypted communication and they were able to take the afc down which meant there was this gap in the market of criminals for secure messaging. And at the same time they had this informants that was it like a like a drug informant and that person had already been an app that was put onto a strip down phone and was starting to sell that app as the new phantom secure kind of thing and it's called the annum app and like a n. zero m and it's kind of like anonymous right and to reduce his sentences for the other crimes he agreed to let the afp in Look at it. The af altered the code of the app so that every message sent would actually come to them and then let this person go out and start selling it and so it was actually sold as two things one as physical device with the app on it and the super interesting thing was like if anybody another law enforcement like picked up this app or this phone from the criminal as you do when you arrest people you take their phones and trying to find information on it. You wouldn't see the app because it was disguised as a calculator and the way you got into the app wise by putting in a password or not in the top that was would unlock it right and then it would open up as this messaging app. You can even if you were able to know you. Were going to get arrested. You could put a different number into the app and it would wipe the phone for you is really really tailored to this criminal market and so what happened was this guy started selling it to criminals. It went out really slowly but very organically and all of a sudden larger kingpin started using it especially in australia and it became the cool app to use so now. You've got all this criminal network in australia using this app. And it started to go out in other parts of the world as well. Meanwhile meanwhile the police are seeing every message and because the criminals think it is secure. They're not even like talking code. You know they're telling them everything and so over the last two years. They've been watching things. They've stopped certain death threats. They've done all kinds of stuff and then last week they or early this week they drop the hammer and started arresting people all over the place who were associated and so far. When i checked last night in australia they had already arrested. Two hundred and twenty four suspects on five hundred charges and seized three point seven metric tons of drugs and nearly thirty five million dollars in cash in australia alone. Like those are only the arrests in australia. And the interesting thing i heard on another podcast was that they measure the amount of crystal meth in the sewage systems in australia. Because this is a major thing that these drug kingpins were selling. They do that to see how much crystal meth is actually like kind of in the market and they're expecting that to like just drop massively in the next couple of months because of this takedown now the stories outright and so they've now lost that ability. There's always this trade off right of do we keep it civil or not and i suspect what was happening was people. Were starting to figure it out. Criminals probably figure it out because number of things have been stopped. Probably were figuring it up so actually. That's right on another podcast. I was listening to called risky. Business guy was talking about how they actually had security people inside the gangs that were trying to figure out what was going on. And they started to see that the data is being sent to a place in the us and then that was kind of tipping them off. Things were going wrong so they called it and it's it's amazing i think. Zoom a movie. I think it is a stroke of genius from the australian police and the fbi. I think there's even this story going around. Who knows if it's true or not about how they were The fbi agenda australian police were sitting around with having beers after they took down phantom secure. And they're like oh man. There's going to be this void in the market if we can get in there and use an app that we wanted them to use. Wouldn't that be amazing. And then they did it. And another best thing was that this had to be a paid subscription and so the subscription the paid subscription that money was actually going to the fbi and they were using that money to keep funding the operation. I know this is amazing. Well it was truly a remarkable feat of police work. Yeah and it was done in a in a traditional way accused offered service in exchange for a deal under sense. Yeah exactly unfortunately it seems few of those caught were involved in cybercrime but on the other hand they were crooks none of nonetheless. Yeah it really. It's taken down huge drug exchanges. So that's really good. It'll be interesting to see what happens in court. Defense lawyers tried to argue entrapment. Although not sure that that entrapment is the would be a proper defense because no police officer asked someone to do something. It might be interesting If there's an argument defenseless can try anything. An argument for breach of privacy. Yeah but it'd be really fascinating to see what happens when charges come to trial. It will be for sure. Unfortunately we've run out of time dino. Thank you very much again. for helping. Put context onto these stories. You're very welcome.

The Barrett Brief Catholic Joe Pushes To Fulfill Faustian Bargain

"Necessite line from the washington free beacon by pushes for tax payer funded borsch abortions in the budget catholic and kill the most catholic catholic ever. He is the model for gonzales. Zaha why can't we are just so happy to have a cap league office But he he's again that goes to community goes to charge goes to the now. Nope but that's what it is. That's what we're looking at by Mood we have loses by. We don't have one. I'm sorry grand prix. Oh regime leader. joe biden's proposed. Federal budget throws open the door for tax payer funded abortions by foregoing a long standing measure. He supported as a senator and of course now that he's in office now that his time is running short. He's got fulfill this bargain. He's gotta make sure that he does. What was agreed to in that is to codify abortion at the federal level. Four ever for life. Except for your baby. You're not gonna live you're gonna get murdered and it's not a shock that this takes place something had to be paid. Some deal had to be done to get him in there and it was. I'm going to take a guy who talks about being catholic who supposedly. I don't know if you've seen the sometimes you talk about wearing a rosary. On his wrists he showed it in a debate. Once in our lady's beautiful rosary that she gave us. he's rosary. i baba catholic and and he's going to be used by evil to codify the sacrament of the american government of the american religion which is abortion so the biden regimes to one t twenty. I thought it was two hundred and twenty two billion. I thought that was the budget. It's actually short. It's actually six trillion mill during fulfil dollars anyway. Twenty twenty two fiscal budget Massive i how they just call a fiscal budget. Just call spending spree. The binding regimes. Twenty twenty two spending spree massively boost federal spending and lacks any protection for the hyde amendment which protects or prohibits taxpayer money from funding abortions. Yep forget that remember when trump was about not doing that and it was Well he wasn't doing that he was talking about making sure that the hyde amendment as in but this this whole thing is shouldn't shock us ladies and gentlemen it shocks us in any way shape or form that they're coming after that they wanna make sure that what happened with trump. the most pro-life president ever cannot happen again cannot happen again that it must be put into place that we must ensure that more babies are murdered every single day here in these united states of america. take listen to this. This is actually biden back during the campaign and one of the debates. This is what he had to say about it here. In the bab refunding crusade channel reason. Why affirmative came out opposed to the hyde amendment. Was that if we're going to have public funding for all healthcare along the line. There is no way you could allow for there to be a requirement that you have hyde amendment. A woman who doesn't have the money could not have coverage under healthcare. Well i'm glad number two and i. I've done that. I did that. Whatever so it's not like just like with the The closing of the keystone pipeline and the dependence on foreign oil and starving us energy independence. Why's he told you it coming. Same thing here yet. We had to have catholics. Tell us left cads. Tell us time and time again. Which by the way left. Cats are losing their minds because now we're supposedly quote unquote pride month pride month. Now you're in the month dedicated to the sacred heart of jesus our lord and savior. Jesus christ that's what this month is ain't no pride month here. I'm pry the pride. I show is being a catholic and being devoted to the sacred heart of our lord. Jesus christ none of this is fagging nonsense but these left cats. You can't have trump trump's not a real catholic joe biden. Is i catholic. What he ain't he ain't nine any way shape or form and this once again out of how many times but of course left cats or lay catholics or lukewarm. Catholics or whatever. You wanna call them just whistling past the graveyard at this point. Just we matter. He's a catholic blah blah blah blah is sinoe the budget calls for six trillion fulfilling gazillion dollars in funding overall. Or whatever number. They just kind of stumble onto we invented. It's not truly in anymore. it's good billion. What the hell is a gazillion. It's what it is. That's how much we're spending. Okay gotcha sweet. Thank you Anyway the majority of which will go to pedro and title programs and interest on the national debt. That's what this budget's going by the way this it's going to entitlement programs in interest. Y'all get yourselves in line because this is not sustainable in the least the department of health and human in-service is requesting a one hundred and thirty three boo dollars in discretionary funding. Yeah we just one hundred thirty three billion to suspend but none of it includes the hyde amendment and of course that represents a twenty five percent increase from last year wolfgang alpha with with a with a ten dollar donation. Thank you sir. Thank you mr wolfgang alpha. You are the best you know. It's so and this goes hand in hand with with What might have been talking about. In the mike church recently about bishops talking about not giving the holy sacrifice the communion our lord and savior in body and blood to pro-abortion politicians and yet joe biden will go to bishops who are not defending the faith and he will receive that everybody in. That situation isn't a bad way. Little catholic inside you know just from a catholic point of view. It's true they're all on a bad way by doing that. And it just be birds me. Burs me to no end. How politics is the dominant religion and catholic is something you put on a check off or evangelical or whatever it is. It's the same thing as your skin. Color back into the article. The by pro-life groups condemn biden spending priorities the but is not only reversal. The pro-life policies of the administration which many many the left cats in lukewarm on twitter myself and other members of the crusade channels spent way too much time fighting and being and saying trump is the most pro-life president al trump's a bully trump's at this. He's not that and this time we have Creepy sleepy regime leader biden openly saying. Yeah we're gonna we're going to get rid of the hyde amendment and we're going to make sure we tax refund the abortions. We make sure we're gonna make sure that the abortions are paid for with your money. These catholics are like oh. Joe i love it. That good as your. They're your thoughts we marianne let's see but also ran against binds defense of the hyde amendment during his career elected office. Remember this the fall seeing bargain. He could have been one way but now but now that he's in he's residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania but now that he's there and all these things that have fallen place to get him there he's gotta do what. The agreement says the susan b anthony center or susan b. Anthony list released a saving for more than four decades. The hyde family of prolife policies kept american taxpayers out of the abortion business with the hyde amendment itself. Saving nearly two point five million lives. The biden regimes budget throws that longstanding. Bipartisan consensus out the window to fulfill based aids campaign. Promise but it's the problem is the faustian bargain. That's gotta be fulfilled. Also once again. You must if you're on the fence about withdrawing your consent. You must do it. You must do it simply because these people are now making. Sure your tax money and my tax money. Without our consent is being used to fund things that we are diametrically opposed to.

Cyber Security Today June 9, 2021 - Ransomware groups getting twitchy, and install these security updates

"This episode of cybersecurity today is brought to you by terranova security discover how to build an effective security awareness training program from a lineup of cyber security experts register now for the twenty twenty one awareness virtual summit at terranova security dot com ransomeware groups getting twitchy and install these security updates welcomes zaib security today. It's wednesday june ninth. I'm howard solomon contributing reporter on cybersecurity for world. Canada dot com Ransomware gangs appear bit edgy. These days and that was before the fbi and the us justice department made the surprising announcement on monday that they had recovered about half of the ransom. Money paid last month by colonial pipeline. Consider these incidents last week. Researchers found a new strain of ransomware which calls itself payload him. Now that was a name that had popped up at the end of may on the data leak site of a ransomware gang called babak for researchers. Now say payload been is a rebranding of ransomware. Being used by another gang called either dried x. or evil corp according to the bleeping computer new site one theory is corporate is using the new malware name to avoid being linked to groups that the united states has forbidden companies from sending ransomware money to meanwhile and alleged spokesperson for the are evil gang was interviewed on russian language telegram channel claiming that it had no intention of targeting us companies. This came after. Our eva was accused of being behind last week's ransomware attack on the jbs foods meat packing corporation. The threat post news site quotes the spokesperson as saying that the gang was focusing on companies in brazil. Well that's where. Jbs is headquartered however the attack led to temporary plant closings in the us and australia and plant shifts being cancelled in canada. In recent days the us has said it is going after ransomware groups as a result. The are evil. Spokesperson said. the gang has cancelled its ban on. Us attacks another reason. Ransomware groups may be on edge. Well when the ceo of colonial pipeline testified before a us senate committee on tuesday one of the things he said was. The fbi was closer to identifying the perpetrators of the ransomware attack on his company. The fbi has already blamed the dark side. Group has being behind that ransomware attack according to the executives testimony. The fbi has a malware center of excellence that among other things. Specializes in dark side separately. Three more canadian firms have recently been listed as victims of ransomware group called cya. I'll spell that p. s. y. a. I haven't been able to confirm this. So i won't name them. But they are a southern ontario fire alarm monitoring system a newfoundland security company a quebec kitchen cabinet maker. Another series vulnerability has been found a wordpress plug in this time. It's the fancy product designer plug in which website developers use to upload images and pdf files to products. According to a security firm called word fence which discovered the problem an attacker could bypass the plug ins checks and upload files allowing them to take over a website administrators are urged to install the latest version of fancy product designer to close the whole. Some seventeen thousand wordpress websites. Use this product. Yesterday was microsoft's monthly patch tuesday when it releases security patches for windows office and other products also included this time are patches for intel processors and adobe acrobat reader and photoshop software usually windows is automatically download updates but it doesn't hurt to check and was always important to install the latest security updates on everything that runs on your computer more so this week because researchers at kaspersky discovered a new attack against the latest versions of windows ten. This attack exploited vulnerabilities in the google chrome browser. So not only. Do you have to make sure windows patched if you use chrome make sure it's on. The latest version kaspersky found. The attackers are using a chain of chrome and windows exploits in highly targeted attacks to take over systems separately. It administrators running the rabbit. M q em q x and verne m q open source message. Brokers are urged to install. The latest patches vulnerabilities can allow a denial of service attack. According to researchers at synopsis who discovered the faults message brokers are unseen capabilities used incorporate software systems to enable multiple independent components to exchange information between them.

Tech New: The Era of Killer Robots

"Available now from iheart season two of the restless once presented by t mobile for business. Join me jonathan strickland. As i explored the ever changing rapidly developing technologies that are transforming industries overnight from advancements in cloud and edge computing software as a service internet of things and five g. Once again. I sit down with the world's most unconventional the leaders at the intersection of technology and business to understand how they continued to thrive in a world of complex organizations and lightning fast technology. The restless ones is now available on the iheartradio app. Wherever you listen to podcasts. You have the ideas to create the next game changing technology. We've got the funds to make. That happened with america's seed fund powered by the national science foundation. You can be awarded up to two million dollars to develop your technology into reality. Don't wait to make an impact on the world. Make the impossible possible. Start the pitch process today at seed fund dot nsf dot gov that's seed fund dot nsf dot gov welcome to textile production from iheartradio. Welcome to textile. I'm your host. Jonathan strickland. I'm an executive producer with iheartradio. And i love all things tech and this is tech news for tuesday. June i twenty twenty one and one story that i haven't really covered on. This podcast is that there is a global semiconductor shortage and that has a cascading effect on the computer and electronics industries. and beyond. so let's dive into that really quickly. Now mostly comes down to a couple of big things that happened. In twenty twenty and one of those is of course the pandemic. The global shutdown of various industries disrupted supply chains and that meant that shortages in raw materials became an issue really quickly. It just had this ripple effect it's not like the whole world went on pause at the same time and it certainly isn't like they all started up again in synchronization along with everyone else so in a way this can lead to the supply chain version of a traffic jam except instead of cars going through you know stop and start traffic because of some other event that happened further down the road. You have various manufacturers who found themselves waiting on other elements in the supply chain and thus they had to go idle because they didn't have the stuff they needed to do their part in the chain. Everything got mucked up related to that the silicon used to create the vials to hold. Vaccines is the same stuff. That's used in semiconductors and you know because the vaccines are understandably very high priority emit the semiconductor industry experienced a silicon shortage and thus the price for silicon went up now in the price for materials goes up. You get one of two outcomes either. The companies that are making stuff out of that raw material have to increase prices or they experience a smaller profit margin either way the squeeze felt further up the chain but the other big issue on top of that. Is that the demand for. Semiconductors grew a lot in two thousand and twenty by nearly seven percent. More of our everyday tack relies on semiconductors. Everything from you know video game consoles automobiles now because of the shortage of semiconductors everything else down the line gets held up to and this is likely to lead to massive losses in several industries. Automakers are probably going to be losing billions of dollars in the short term because semiconductors are important components for nearly every system inside the car like there's more than fifty of them and that includes everything from entertainment to breaks to steering pat gelsinger. The new ceo of intel warns. That this could just be the start of a shortage and that we could see the effects of the shortage stretch on several years. Gelsinger said that the semiconductor industry has reacted quickly to near term challenges. But that the long term effects are still a big concern. Meanwhile on the consumer side we're seeing the effects of this crisis the laptop maker acer has said that due to this semi conductor shortage. The company is only able to fill half of worldwide demand for laptop production on any given day. So what this means for all of us you and me is that the supply for all sorts of tech from smartphones. To computers to cars is going to be more limited than what we've come to expect at least for the near term and demand is likely to be high so you've got high demand and you've got limited supply the next thing you typically see is prices go up so get ready to spend more money to buy your tech the next year or two until things shake out and while we get ready to pay out more money the guardian reports that the silicon six have actually paid out less than they claimed. The silicon six refers to six gargantuan tech companies would be alphabet which is google's parent company amazon apple facebook microsoft and net flicks which interestingly is the first time i've seen netflix added to this particular list. Totally makes sense though. And according to the guardian these six companies overstated their tax payments by nearly one hundred billion dollars over the last ten years. A report from the fair tax foundation claims that these six companies paid ninety six billion dollars less in tax between two thousand eleven and two thousand twenty than their annual reports indicate moreover these six companies pay the tax rate. That you are i would go bonkers over. According to fair tax foundation these companies paid out three point six percent of their total revenue in tax. That's two hundred nineteen billion dollars of taxes and yeah that is an astounding amount of money. Two hundred nineteen billion dollars. But let's compare that to the amount of revenue they generated which was more than six trillion dollars trillion. That goes beyond a princely sum now to let's be fair that is revenue that does not prophet right. Like prophet. is what you get after you remove all the costs from the money that you brought in luck early. The guardian digs down into that as well over that decade in the last ten years amazon collected around one point six trillion dollars in revenue but collected a mere sixty point. Five billion dollars in profits. So i mean. I'm being a little flippant because honestly these numbers are so big. I can't actually comprehend them like from an abstract perspective. I kind of get it. But you know if i tried to dive. Any further down is just too big but you see that. The amount of of profit compared to revenue is very very tiny when you look at the ratio right not by sheer amount. Sixty billion dollars is a huge amount of money anyway. The guardian reports that amazon ended up paying well below what it should have been expected to pay almost half as much. in fact there's a shifting movement around the world to apply new tax laws that would limit companies from being able to put profits over into tax havens whether that actually happens or not whether countries around the world really act on this That remains to be seen. Because i'm sure there will be more than a few dollars spent on lobbying to oppose those measures so we'll have to see how this develops further. Okay but what if money is no object to you. What if you are swimming in the stuff you know. Scrooge mcduck style. How do you flaunt your wealth in a way. That's both flashy and environmentally friendly. Well my friend. Maybe it's time you into the silent shadow. A luxury electric vehicle concept in the works over at rolls royce. Now the brand roles rice has long been associated with luxury and opulence and the word shadow has significance for the company back in nineteen sixty five rolls introduced the silver shadow luxury car when it comes to the silent shadow well. We don't really have that many details about the car. The company says that the plans are to have the vehicle ready for purchase within the decade. But we don't know any specs. We don't know what the projected prices. Although you know if you have to ask you can't afford it. We don't know really any real details except that of course you know silent shadow. The name tells us that we know it's going to be very very quiet but then again rolls royces known at least in part for engineering cars that operate quietly because the whole point of a rolls royce. Is that the experience of driving it or for those who prefer to employ driver. The experience of riding in a rolls royce is to enjoy luxury rather than that chassis shaking engine revving experience you get with like muscle. Cars rolls royce. Isn't the only luxury car maker diving into electric vehicles. And as reported in previous episodes of tech stuff that's pretty much a necessity because a lot of places around the world intend to phase out the sale of new fossil fuel powered vehicles over the next decade and a half earlier this year. I talked about how the electronics company. Lg was the smartphone industry. The company had shown off a couple of interesting concepts s. But it sounds like they're never going to hit store shelves so that magical expanding smartphone is just gonna be a of legend. I think we're not at least we're not gonna see it from. Lg now korea biz wire reports. That lg is switching. Its former smartphone manufacturing facilities over to make home appliances instead The company is also consolidating its operations in brazil expanding facilities in the city of manaus. And i apologize for the terrible mispronunciation of that. I am certain. I got it completely wrong while lg pulled the plug on smartphones after finding the market too competitive It was dominated by companies like apple and samsung home. Appliances are a totally different story. One of the many consequences of the pandemic of twenty twenty. I guess i shouldn't give it a year. it's still going anyway. One of the big consequences was this increased demand in home appliances as people spend more time at home and lg saw. Its sales skyrocket as result. Now this move reflects that demand was really the driver for el-jisr decisions however it will remain to be seen if that demand will continue right if the demands that were generated by the pandemic in two thousand and twenty are going to stick around even as we start to have a better handle on dealing with the consequences of that pandemic so we don't really know if this is the start of a trend in home appliance sales or it's more of a blip in the radar seen at reports that some recently unsealed court documents show that google purposefully of the skated the location settings in its android phones software so that it would be harder for users to find those settings and then turn them off as we've seen with numerous tech companies including one we're gonna cover in a second. The real business of those companies aren't necessarily in hardware or social networking sites or whatever the surface level businesses. You know google's business isn't really search it's data that's where the real money is collecting and then exploiting data in different ways primarily when it comes to user data that comes in the form of the company's relationships with various advertisers. You know obviously the more information you can give an advertiser about their intended market. The more effectively that advertiser can serve up ads to that market. So this the cycle this feedback loop between these companies and advertisers that in turn inform the business decisions of those companies like google so according to this document google discovered that if the location settings on an android phone were relatively easy to navigate to a lot of people opted to turn off their location settings. How about that folks are not super jazzed about being tracked everywhere and so google solution to this issue was not to shift business operations away from the benefits of harvesting location data. No the answer. Apparently was to make those settings just way harder to find so that users would continue to generate those geo located zeros and ones for google so that google could profit off of them without those users actually really being aware of it on top of that. Google apparently reached out to various manufacturers that make android products in an effort to convince them to hide the location settings in deep various menus and clunky user interfaces like l. g. pushed geo location settings to the second page of settings in its phones and anyone who's had any experience on the internet knows that if you are below the fold that is if you have to scroll down in order to see a particular entry you lose like the vast majority of people who are looking at your stuff like this is clear in google search right if you're not in those first few hits of a google search. The traffic that comes to you thanks to google. Search is subaru low. Because you know. Most people don't bother to school downing further same's true with settings on phones if it's not right there a lot of people don't take the effort to go any further. This revelation comes on the heels of an investigation from three years ago by the associated. Press into google and that investigation found that google is tracking location even if users opted out of the location history feature. So apparently if you turned off location history on your android device. It just meant that google was going to keep on tracking you everywhere you go. They just wouldn't tell you about it. I mean why should you care about all this anyway. Why why is this important. Well location data isn't just about collecting information on where you go and when you go there. It's also about collecting the data of everybody else at the same time. Anyone who has a device that has geo location connected to it. If you're in a space that has a lot of folks with phones in it will now as a data collection company you can do all sorts of interesting things so i'm going to give you an example and this is actually something that's related to a twitter thread. I saw and i wish i could remember the person who posted it because it was very good. But i'll give you kind of An example so. Let's say that you've got a good friend of yours. Who have seen a longtime and you go to visit this friend for a few days. So you're staying at your friend's house now. Your friend also has various devices in. You've got your smartphone and location tracking tells google where you are and assuming google also has at least some access to the data that's generated by your friends devices. Google also knows who you are with. They know that you're at this specific person's house and they know things about that. Specific person to google knows all about your friends activities and what they like and where they like to go and all that kinda stuff so now. Google starts integrate adds into your various experiences. That aren't just targeting you. They're also targeting. Your friend i mean you like this person well enough to stay at their house for a few days. Maybe you like them well enough to shop for a birthday present for them and google happens to know when their birthday is because that some of the data that these companies collect email addresses birthdays these companies collect not through directly grabbing it off of your device but by cross referencing the databases that. Have your information in them from across all the different services of us. So if you've ever used a service where you've had to put in things like your name and address and phone number and your birthday and your email and all that kind of stuff. All that data ends up getting mixed up with information that's gathered from sources like devices. And that's a really powerful thing. So now because google knows where you are and who you're with and they know about that person's birthday maybe they serve up ads about something that the friend of yours really likes and the suggestion is. Hey it's it's a. It's my friend's birthday coming up. I should click on this ad and by the stuff so now you get this weird sensation that you're getting served ads that are very specifically targeted at you and the experiences that you've recently had it feels like google is listening in on you right like it's just spying on you and the it's picking up stuff from your your phone's microphone or whatever but no google doesn't have to do any of that. Google doesn't have to do any active spying on you. It doesn't have to listen to you. It's just collecting all the data from you and your friend just by being who you are and where you are and then cross referencing that data with other data sets and then analyzing that data and then acting on it this is just one way where data collection can become intrusive and creepy. Now we're gonna take a quick break when we come back. I'll give another update about another company. That's equally obsessed with your information. It rhymes with a space. Look but first. Let's take a quick break ever drive an e you know because once you feel the thrill of electric there's no going back and the next generation of evt's by general motors are absolute joy to drive.

The can make a huge difference to tectonic changes that impact the way the entire company does business.

And what are they looking. Forward to tackling next. The restless ones is the must listen to show for those in the know for those who want to know who want to dive deeper and who want to stay ahead of the curve offering firsthand lessons in leadership and innovation from the executives and technology. Making it happen today so make sure you listen to the restless ones tuesday. Find it on the iheartradio app. Wherever you get your podcasts. Okay we're back. And before the break. I was telling you about google and geo location data and how the company was apparently trying to hide the settings for geo location away so that fewer people would turn it off. I mean that's the thing. These companies are often compelled by various legislations around the world to offer up that solution but then the companies do their best to make that option. You know harder to find so that fewer people actually use it. Because it's it's we've seen when people are given the option they often like to opt out of these features than when your entire business is dependent upon those features. That's where you see these companies coming up with these clever ways to try and get around the issue so along that same vein remember how facebook put up a fuss about the new privacy settings that are included in the latest version of apple's ios. So one of the new features of the iphone operating system. Well really the irs operating system. Because it's for all sorts of devices. Not just the iphone anyway. One of the new features that users will get a prompt asking if they will allow certain apps like facebook for example to collect data about themselves outside of the app itself so that includes data that comes from other apps that are on your phone so for example facebook. If you were to allow this option would potentially be allowed to collect information about your shopping habits on other apps or what restaurants you like to order from whenever you used delivery services and so on now. Because of apple's change in policy users will get a message asking them to grant permission to allow apps like facebook to do. This and facebook really hates that and the reason the company really hates it is pretty much. The same reason that google burying location settings because data is money and if you give people the option to share less data about themselves they might actually take that option. And i mean really. Isn't that just stealing. I mean when you get down to. It isn't just ungrateful for users. To not over all the information about who they are and what they do and who they know so that poor scrappy companies like facebook can just make a buck off that info. Obviously i'm being incredibly obnoxious and sarcastic here. Because i think facebook is like literally the worst anyway now. A new study suggests that apple's changes to privacy are in fact bad. The study says apple is doing a bad thing by including these privacy options. It says that those policies only served to help apple and they hurt all other companies and thus these are anti competitive practices. That apple has put in place apple. Saying if you want to operate on our system you must follow these rules. Which by the way. We don't have to follow as apple as apple we. It's cool for us to collect all the information but you companies out there. You cannot do that and that this hurts other companies also facebook totally funded that study now that might cause you to question the study's objective perspective right like the studies. Outcome is essentially in line with facebook's complaints against apple. So i think that's actually a pretty darn healthy attitude to have to question the objectivity of the results because the study itself was funded by the company. That has a beef against apple but all that being said does that mean it's possible. The paper actually has a point in that apple is going to benefit while other companies. Do not i mean maybe very likely apple is certainly no innocent lamb in this equation. Either right you've got all these different companies that are leveraging data in different ways. Sometimes it's obvious and sometimes it's subtle but they're all profiting off of it now. I don't have a solution that addresses this whole issue unless it's just to give up on smartphones in general and go to like really simple cell phones and just kind of opt out of the online experience. That's not really an option for most people or at least not a you know an attractive option but the flipside is unless there's some specific legislation in place that that directs how data can and cannot be used. see really away of fixing this it's a mess. Speaking of messes in science fiction autonomous killer. Robots are a common trope from terminator two robocop to the classic chopping mall. the threat of a powered. Killing machines is made apparent. And we've seen numerous experts in robotics and ai. Speak out against the development of these kinds of devices. They pointed out that autonomous weapons would very likely lead to a new type of arms race and that we would also see horrific uses of this technology. It does not take much imagination to conjure up a scenario in which a machine all under its own. Power mistakenly identifies a group of people as being targets and then attacks them or heck. It's not hard to imagine. A machine that identifies a group quote unquote correctly but the people behind the machine are committed to wiping out specific populations and they're just using the machines to carry out the awful horrific work and according to the un we are essentially in that terrifying era. A un security council report said that in march of twenty twenty. The nation of turkey deployed an s. T. m cargo to military drown. This drome apparently under autonomous command attacked libyan armed forces that were reporting and withdrawing from an area the report claims that drone could identify and attack targets without first establishing any line of communication back to a human operator. The un had previously warned against the sort of thing advocating for a global ban on the production of autonomous. That was a move that was opposed by two major world powers russia and the united states. Now this was back in two thousand eighteen the. Us is in a very different place politically today in twenty twenty one however i am not confident enough to say that the us would unilaterally condemned the development of these kinds of autonomous weapons. And i say that mostly because the obama administration had its own serious burden to bear when it comes to the use of lethal military drones though those were under the control of human operators anyway. The report has prompted more experts in the fields of machine. Learning to speak out against the practice of developing and deploying autonomous weaponry so pretty much falls to governments to take action from here and perhaps give the un the authority to to have a unilateral ban on the development and thus processes in place for any countries to have violated that ban because otherwise without that kind of global cooperative approach. We're going to see countries say well. We let there be an autonomous weapon gap if we don't pursue it. We will be destroyed by these tools because our our our opponents will surely go down that pathway so we have to then it becomes the sort of escalation that we've seen time and time again pretty concerning stuff we've got another cyber attacks story to cover this time targeting. The food industry a company called j b s. foods had to shut down operations over the weekend due to a cyberattack. Jbs foods is the world's largest producer of beef and poultry and the second largest producer of pork which surprised me because i guess pigs have to be the biggest producer report. A jokes anyway. A cyber attack forced jbs foods to shutdown operations in multiple countries including the u k united states australia canada and more the attack hit the it systems of the company and at the time of this recording. I don't have specific details about the nature of that cyber attack. If i had to guess and again this is just a guess i would say. It's very likely another ransomware attack similar to what we saw with colonial pipeline earlier this year if that is the case then. Jbs foods could in theory be weighing the option. About whether or not to pay off a ransom. If that is the case. I still maintain paying. Ransoms is always a bad idea because it consistently fuels more attacks in the future the more times hackers get paid off the more they see that this is profitable and they'll do it even more. The company is definitely working to restore functionality to it systems and jbs foods says that it has no evidence that this attack compromised data relating to employees customers or suppliers but that processing transactions might take a while because the company has to restore functionality. So we'll keep an eye on this story and finally up in space. The international space station's robot arm suffered some damage recently and i. I was kinda hoping to read. About how the i s got into a a robot arm wrestling competition will semester stallone. And that this was finally my eagerly anticipated sequel to the hit film over the top. And i think this one could be called way over the top and now stallone is like a space trucker who likes to arm wrestle. But i'm told that none of this is true. And i should just probably not talk about that anymore. But what is true is that the arm did get damaged and the real reason it got damage was because of space debris which is a real issue and a growing one as we send more stuff up into space and we lack a cohesive approach to getting that stuff down once it ends its its useful life cycle. It's going to get worse and When this actually happened is hard to say. But nasa states that the canada-arm to which has been part of the iss since two thousand one has a puncture and its thermal blanket so this is essentially like insulation around the arm and that the boom underneath also suffered some damage as to win this happened. I'm not actually sure. But the issue of space debris is one that has been growing over the years without much action on the part of terrestrial governments to create a foundation for rules and processes to mitigate that issue or as jack right nelson from the national university of singapore faculty of law said to the register. Quote the whole in canada arm to is miniscule compared to the whole in the international legal regime concerning space debris end quote. Couldn't have said it. Better myself mr nelson all right.

We thank you next year. News this evening on president binds infrastructure. Plan the president in what the white house is calling a major concession to republicans suggesting he won't raise the tax rate on corporations from twenty one percent to twenty eight percent for this plan but instead saying corporations that have been paying little or no taxes at all should now pay a minimum of fifteen percent tonight. Republican leaders say. That won't happen. So what's next. And when does the negotiating end. Here's our senior white. House correspondent. Mary bruce tonight tonight. Some major concessions from president biden. Is he tries to get republicans on board with his infrastructure plan. The president initially asked for two point three trillion dollars. Now he's come down to roughly one trillion and for now. He's willing to table his plan to raise corporate taxes from twenty one to twenty eight percent instead. He's asking corporations who pay little to nothing now to pay a minimum of fifteen percent. No more loopholes. Let me just give you a simple fact. Last year for example fifty five of our largest corporations in america paid zero dollars in federal tax zero but experts tell us these changes alone are not likely to raise enough revenue to pay for biden's infrastructure. Plan to help rebuild the nation's roads and bridges and expand broadband internet access. Still the white house says it should be enough to get republicans on board based on their bottom lines. Many of the republican negotiators should be able to agree but even though biden is willing to hit pause on raising corporate taxes to twenty-eight percent saying they'll just push others to pay their fair share at fifteen percent senate republican leader mitch. Mcconnell says it's still a non-starter doesn't appeal. The members of my party vice the president administration led to reach an agreement on infrastructure smaller but still significant and totally paid for all right mary bruce tracking this every step of the way for us live at the white house tonight and mary. Republicans we know are expected to make another counter offer to the president. Tomorrow the bottom lines. And i went back and forth stop and at what point if they don't come up with some sort of agreement between the two parties when might president move ahead without republicans well david administration officials had suggested that they wanted to see a clear path forward by monday. But now the white house says they aren't going to be setting any firm deadlines they want these conversations to continue even some key like senator joe manchin tonight say they want these negotiations to go on and we know the president will be talking with that top republican negotiator. Getting that counteroffer tomorrow. David mary bruce with late news tonight mary thank you tonight. There is news of an investigation involving the postmaster general. Louis dejoy a spokesperson for the postmaster general confirming the department of justice is investigating him over reports of pain contribution violations to julie is alleged to pressured employees at his former company to donate to republican campaigns and to have reimburse them through bonus payments at a congressional hearing last summer though dejoy called that claimed quote outrageous.

Openings and urgent cyber attack warning ransomware attacks in the us are up. Almost three hundred percent no slowing america's gun violence getting innocent people that have nothing to do with their beef the nfl vows to end raisch.

President biden brought to tulsa to mark the centennial. The city's race massacre becoming the first sitting president to visit the site where hundreds of black americans were brutally murdered. Abc's marcus more reports on two days of emotional events for survivors and descendants. On the one hundred. One of the darkest days in american history people of all walks and face gathered to dedicate a prayer wall on hallowed ground historic vernon ame church the only surviving building from the tulsa race massacre. We must be more powerful than even they were so this and nothing like it ever happens again in public policy or in public violence acknowledging tragedy long overlooked in american history president biden traveling to oklahoma to honor the lives lost and forever changed by the tulsa race massacre the first president in one hundred years to do so much too long. The history of what took place here was told in silence cloaked in darkness. But just because history is silent. It doesn't mean that it did not take place. Starting the night of may thirty first. Nineteen twenty one. An angry white mob stormed tulsa greenwood neighborhood also known as black wall street in less than twenty four hours more than thousand homes and businesses. Were destroyed an estimated. Three hundred black americans killed all after allegations. That were never proven. That'll black man assaulted a white woman in elevator. One hundred years ago at this hour on this first day of june smoke darkened the tulsa sky from thirty five blocks of greenwood. There were left in ash amber raised in rubble the night in the morning. The mob terrorized with torches guns shooting. It will a mob tied a black man by the waste to the back of their truck with his head banging along the pavement as they drove off a murderer. Black family draped over the fence of their home outside and only couple other bed praying to god with their heart and their soul and their a shot in the back of their heads. The president's proposing policies to begin to level the playing field on housing education and investing in small businesses including those run by black and brown entrepreneurs to build a common ground is truly repair and to rebuild and continued calls for remembrance and resolve and here see injustice and esque in my country to what happened in tulsa in nineteen twenty one just weeks ago. Three survivors delivering emotional testimony before congress. Everything that they are homes. Our churches our newspapers out the aiders. Our lies greenwood represented all the best responsible for black people in america and for all the people. No one was ever held accountable for the attack. While are believed to have been killed. Only thirty six people were officially confirmed. Dead. abc's marcus more. President biden has declared june a national month of action hoping to motivate unvaccinated americans to get a kobe nine hundred nine shot. Abc stephanie ramos. Says it's part of the president's goal to get at least one shot into the arms of seventy percent of americans by independence day. The president unveiling new incentives like free childcare daycare chains and some ymca's while parents get the vaccine or recover from it overnight hours at pharmacies on friday nights in june the white house teaming up with black owned barber shops and beauty salons to reach more americans and touting a blitz of new rewards like free sporting tickets and if the country reaches the president's goal free beer from bush get a shot and have a beer free beer for everyone twenty one years or over to celebrate the independence from the virus. Twelve states have already met the president's goal but another six states have yet to even reach half of their adult population with one shot deaths from kobe.

Unfiltered with Reid & Bob: Crypto craziness, ransomware attacks, "smart risks" & more

"Since you're a masters of scale listener we know you're fascinated by the stories of how leaders and brands shape our culture. Our friends at slate just launched a new season of thrilling tales of modern capitalism. The tells the hidden stories of the brands that have changed the way we live and work from volkswagen to salesforce to go fund me triumph for failure. Every company has a story and those stories are more thrilling than you may have imagined. You can subscribe to thrilling tales of modern capitalism in any podcast app. All right here we go. hi everyone. Welcome to masters scale unfiltered a periodic. Dialogue between reid hoffman. The host of masters of scale. And me bob saffi. In host of masters of scale rapid response about the most important business topics impacting entrepreneurs right. Now i've always found it valuable to talk through strategy in the business environment with my colleagues. There's an experimental aspect to these unfiltered sessions. It's not scripted. And we don't really know where beheading but we do know. Our listeners are on their own experimental journey to and we want to mirror that in a similar way. These unfiltered sessions are designed to put some context around what we're hearing in our podcast interviews and elsewhere and a chance for us to discuss some key trends unfolding. This time we're going to talk about cybersecurity. And smart risks crypto and climate change. And how covid nineteen continues to reverberate through companies plus. We'll have a couple of cameos from compass. Ceo robert redford and guild education ceo. Rachel carlson are you ready. Read absolutely you gotta have incredible talent. At every position there are fires burning. You're out back to this holy in there so many easy which i have no idea what. Sorry a mistake with you half the time. Three bedroom apartment teams absolutely all ten years later but he do happen. Data justice this his masters of scale. We'll start the show in a moment from exclusive brand partner capital one business. We had the store that structure was from the eighteen. Eighties is like old wood floors. We're in this open air markets and these stores were lined up and there was the fruit guy and the meat guy. That's jeff braverman. Ceo of nuts dot com and that open air market was home to his grandfather's not business founded in nineteen twenty nine. But when jeff was just four or five. The store got bulldozed. Moved into like the indoor mall as a kid out. Were the cash register we actually had a roaster so we will be freshly roasting peanuts. Three generations roasted peanuts in that shop until the dawn of the internet era gave the youngest one. An idea. I said to my data mago. Hey maybe we can sell knots online. That pivot online. Sales turned out to be a lifeline. Because wait for it. They're store got bulldozed again. In the early two thousands how did jeff and his family faced these moments of fundamental change. The just kept innovating an an cave capital on business sees this all the time with the entrepreneur. She works with the open. Air market that generation has ended the retail market. Maybe that era has ended. Great moore's business owners know how to react to change and that's one of the reasons they can see possibilities when others may see closed doors. What does the nut shop three point. Oh look like today. We'll find out later in the show. It's all part of capital on businesses look at entrepreneurs who are persevering with courage and innovation so much to talk about all right. I want to start with crypto currency. The price of bitcoin and theory m does coin bounced all over the place this year. Miami's mayor said the city would accept tax payments in crypto bitcoin. Conference in miami attracted twelve thousand. Attendees el salvador's president announced a plan to make bitcoin legal tender in the country. It sounds a bit like an hbo series. I love you the level. Set this for us. About what's hype. What really matters are going to lose their shirts and do i have to pay attention. If i'm not directly in the crypto business or can i just ignore it will so i think most people can in fact ignore it at the moment. And what's more you should really invest if either a or of professional investor or be your investing money that you really don't mind losing because it's one of those areas where money will be made but a lot of money will be lost and so it's not for the casual gambler now. I do. Think crypto is super important back in two thousand fifteen. I gave a talk at davos. Which i later then developed into an article in wired uk. About how crypto currency asset platform crypto capital cap. The world needed and. I think part of what you're seeing here is what happens when you have an open protocol like the internet that allows a bunch of different developers with ideas. Starting with the pseudonym sa- toshi dot com auto and bitcoin into a wide variety of other alternatives. In order to say here is something that could be a really essential way for enabling the internet the hdp or https of value in money and not just obviously in assets or in currency and payments but also in a platform for smart contracts that i think one or more platforms are gonna exist for these cases now. We'll some people lose their shirts. Absolutely will new great industries be built upon this absolutely so whether you need to pay attention is whether on how closer industry is to it. So if you're doing for example fintech you should be paying attention to crypto. Doesn't mean that it's all there all right now but it is something that will be a part of the platform technologies five years ten years fifteen years twenty years into the future and usually you want to be skating where the puck is moving. Not toward has been. When i first encountered the idea of crypto. I thought it was designed to thrive without middlemen sort of this independent area. And then you've got now. Exchanges like coin base that are worth fifty billion dollars in something about that doesn't feel like it connects although maybe there's something i'm not really understanding about how it's gonna work when it becomes more of a business as opposed to a concept. Well you're absolutely right. That part of the ideologues. It's the power to the individuals with the rules of the system being the rooms between servers and not having middle institutions middle people and actually in fact when you get to value that is not necessarily good because if you say well i've got ten thousand dollars of bitcoin or choose your crypto currency on my computer in a way that a hacker can steal it that suboptimal and also. How do you safely transact. I'd like to trade some of my local currency for some bitcoin will who transact with obviously these crypto currencies. Allow you to transact with everyone. But most people don't do that transaction safely and so all of that is part of the reason why we have financial infrastructure and part of the reason why while i have a great believer that the crypto capital systems will add a lot torah financial systems. I also think that doesn't mean that banks go away. I love that you bring up the security of it because that is a topic to that has become more and more disgust of late. This cyber security as a publicly seen threat with colonial pipeline being shut down by ransomware. Jbs foods paying out. Eleven million dollars we've seen during the pandemic the essential nature of digital engagement remote work virtual access. But it's also made us that much more dependent on technet works more interconnected more exposed. How much should business leaders be focused concerned about cybersecurity. One of the things. I say as however fearful you are cybersecurity and the needs for better defenses against cybersecurity. You're not fearful enough. This is one of the areas where you have no idea how much of the world is. An emperor has no clothes situation and these ransomware attacks are just examples. You know one of the things that they can do is to interrupt your business to hold your processing of your business hostage and one of the challenges that the world is going to need to solve. With these crypto systems is they provide a very good way for being paid outside of the payments controls of current governments which means that it becomes a very good way for demanding ransoms where those ransoms are not recoverable not traceable. They're all kinds of areas. Where there's a cost to the tech that we have in some ways that it can be easy to forget. I mean yes tech ease of use access efficiency but it's offset by some worry some risk. I guess we don't get something for nothing right. That is a reminder for all of us in this that they're two sides to this tech world that we live in we have to protect ourselves in. Yeah and one of the things that i've been working on is to try to make sure that ethics is part of every computer science major. Because you need to understand when this will really matter and the same thing is true here for example cross-border transactions. He said. well what what. good is crypto for. Well the answer is if i am a person who wants to provide work through the internet but i am doing it from a country that's not well connected to the global financial system. It's hard for me to get paid. Which means at mitalent can't be enabled that well and actually impact that we want to have talent everywhere in the world able to make much progress because if one person who is for example coding in sudan and generates money front then can support their family then can support. The local schools then can support the local civic infrastructure. Those kinds of things are super important for making progress in the world right so if bitcoin is legal tender and el salvador hopefully that's to create opportunities for the population salvador to do jobs that that value as opposed to making it a center for criminal enterprises in some way. Right exactly and actually. I don't think the making legal will make it a particular center for criminal enterprises because by the way functionally. Bitcoin is actually impact legal in many places including the us the irs. Recognize it as something they wanna tax else. hovers president making. Bitcoin legal tender doesn't actually in fact make bitcoin more able for the criminals. It's a perfectly decent and good policy thing to do especially when you want to say. Look i wanna make sure that my country has a stable infrustructure. I want my business community. And i want my citizenry to know. They have this stability right. No matter what's going to happen with the government. And i think that can be a healthy move in a number of countries circumstances so the last time we did one of these vaccines were just starting to roll out in large numbers in the states. Now were further along and more than half. The country has been vaccinated and the virus seems to be abating at least in the states. I wanted to ask you some questions about some of the lessons of the covert videira. This kind of you know. Black swan type. Global event and i know many folks are predicting kind of roaring twenties. You could also see the other side of it. Do you have a sense about whether we're going to be looking over our shoulders more. What is it gonna do our relationship to risk. Some people will look at this and say this is a reason why to take risk particularly take smart risk that you can't rely upon everything else being stable and so you need to manage intelligent risk. That's obviously where i tend to start. There's also other people who go. Oh my gosh. The world is really dangerous to have completely safe platform. I need to choose based on safety. Given that i felt damaged or was damaged or felt at risk. Because of this. Until i you're gonna see both in some intensity and so when people say well. Hey is there going to be a whole bunch of new investment and a whole bunch of new entrepeneurship. Yes is going to be a whole bunch of people scarred and having ptsd from the pandemic yes and what we as leaders and helpers in the world you do is. Let's help both get to a better more. Modern jobs better productivity. Because we're all better off when we have a high functioning economy. And so i think that's the answer for those of us who are. How do we help people. On both sides of this risk equation. I spoke with robert rifkin. Founder and ceo of real estate platform compass for rapid response and he shared a particularly compelling perspective on the post cove environment. Let's listen in. I think that it has been very stressful for me. And i think it's been more stressful than i am able to process and what i mean by that. I had a conversation with someone that i work with. And i was just telling him that. It's hard for me to get excited. About the rebound From from cove it. It reminds me of how i felt after my wife had her first miscarriage the moment he told me that she is pregnant. I never felt so so happy. I felt so happy in crying with joy and then a a week later we found out that she lost the baby and in the pregnancy. I've never been able to have that same feeling into explaining that to him in what he said which really stuck with me said. Yeah this is. This is a real form of trauma. And i think our country. We're going to have to figure out our own individual ways to deal with that but we've all gone through real trauma over the last year and so yes. We've had to support each other over the past year. But we'll need to continue to support each other going forward. Even after this is over one of the lessons you talked about even before well before the pandemic was the idea of letting some fires burn that. There's triage involved in scaling in entrepreneurship. That kind of trash was forced on organizations during the crisis. Right you deal with your urgency's longer term things. Some of them can be pushed aside. And now i feel like some leaders refreshing those delayed to dues or at least wondering like which of them do. I really have to go back to in the categories of the things that i think will be different. I think that the notion of phone calls versus a video conference call. I think has shifted a lot because like the entire white collar professional class use to videoconferencing right flying to a town to have a one hour meeting. I actually think it'll be like the. Hey let's do an hour on zoom fully. Remote events will be something that will continue. But it doesn't mean we won't have in person events and the principle thing that i find it. Everyone's like well you know. Now it's going to be like fifty percents work at home and fifty percent the office. And it's like well actually. I think it's a pretty quickly. Go back to whatever. The driving dynamic was for your particular office in your particular work from before so when you look at tech companies a lotta tech companies tended to only have three quarters of its employee base badged in in any particular day. Look it'll be a little bit more now because there'd be more tools that you can work at home a little bit more a little bit easier but the short answer is we had an office because actually building trust and connections at the office really important. We had an office because sometimes everyone being in the room really matters and that blended environment of some people in room. Some people not in the room really doesn't work that well for people who are not in the room and so. I think that those things will come back much closer much faster than people expect. I wonder how that culture element of organizations is going to shift and play out. It's like we went into the pandemic and there was a legacy for our culture about how the organization worked and we could lean on that for a certain period of time and now that we've gone this long. Do we have to do to make sure that we can maintain or instill a culture going forward. Well let me start by answering. What the fully distributed companies had learned even pre the pandemic which is culture is something you have to build deliberately. It's harder to build in distributed remote circumstances and so fully distributed companies put a lot of energy in a specifically building culture. They also allocate time and budget for making in-person meetings where those in person meetings are also about connectivity building. And so however you do that. Ultimately it requires a substantial in person component. I think whatever degree you're adding remote you're putting in extra work to build the culture now. Part of the reason why companies kept moving at fast speed. Is that already built pretty intense connectivity and so when all of a sudden on whatever day and march you go okay. We're now remote like okay. I still who. I'm talking to you. And i still trust that percents collaborating with me on this project and so forth and so i think that kind of direct and intentional culture building will be even more to whatever degree we dialed up. Remoteness industry work. We'll be back in a moment afterward from our exclusive partner capital one business. We've been in christmas season. Since march of twenty twenty because everyday was christmas with the volume. We were facing. We're back with jeff. Braverman of nuts dot com since the start of the pandemic their e commerce business has been booming. Keeping up with demand meant hiring hundreds of new workers to prepare and hand packed. Things like white. Chocolate cashews roast. The cashews toffee glaze them and then cover them with white chocolate. You can't just do that the day. Before the order comes in jeff quickly hired workers to roast glaze and ship those knots but as he scaled he learned. That hiring wasn't enough. We have our production side more filling all the bags. And that's where most of our labourers are. Two leads were out. If the leads aren't trained up well enough requires me to be on the floor. So we didn't have the right levels of management. We now have the right training. We've had place such a long time but you need to be able to elevate them properly. Give them the tool kit. It's a classic challenge faced by entrepreneurs coming out of the pandemic during the crisis leader stepped onto the floor but at some point. Jeff says you have to step back you need structure and you need process as you scale because otherwise you get into trouble. Building structure to elevate their teams. That's a challenge capital one businesses and cave sees and so many entrepreneurs who scaled with unexpected speed. There's a moment where they need to empower their teams as they start to think about innovating for the future. How do we scale our operations. Our systems for this new normal. Jeff knows he's got to focus on the big picture. Can you learn share. The rains we'll find out later in the show. It's all part of capital one businesses spotlight on entrepreneurs who are persevering with grit and determination. Ooh one of the more dormant efforts during the pandemic was upskilling. Right and as we come out of the other side it feels like of course it's become even more important figure out how to develop a future. Focused workforce talked with rachel carlson at guild education for rapid response. I know you know rachel. She's seen rising demand for online education and certification and she asserted that the half of skilled today is only about four years that we constantly have to be learning new skills. How do you think about this issue of upskilling. So the first thing is the half iva skill on the four years is an average right because there's some skills where the technology platforms ourselves so forth or changing so fast that your skill changes and then there's others negotiation sales analytic decision making those things are maintained throughout a career. I model things a lot in games. I said what's the game play of this particular activity game play of early stage. Investing gameplay of later stage investing game play of investors game play. that's going on within a market like silicon valley or artificial intelligence or crypt out. And then i go okay. So what's baseline knowledge of things and what's baseline skills and so for me. When i look at this i go okay. What's the game. And then which things. I naturally learning. Because i'm in the game. Which things do. I need to go ad and more or less. I'd say you probably don't need to think about this every day. As to what is my upskilling. Or what am i new skills. Look like which. You're probably making a mistake if you're not doing it at least every month and it's in fast-moving spaces like technology. It's probably worth thinking a little bit about each week. I was reflecting on this. I mean in part because of our jobs and we get to talk to new. People were getting introduced ideas. But i i realized that i kind of go through waves like i'll do deep dives study on certain things and then sometimes i'll do deep dives on what i call reflection like trying to find some long term perspective. I'm kind of trusting that my network is gonna surface the most important things that i might be missing. But i really don't have a schedule like a pattern and if i'm hearing you you're sort of encouraging like it's not bad to have a system. It's not bad avid system. And by the way. I think that it is another part that i use in my own systems. One part is the games that i'm in but another one is people around you. Anyone that you respect that you're serious about etc. What can i learn from them. And it's actually one of the things that i think is part of the under told story of silicon valley because part of valley continues to generate such a massive percentage of the technology industry is because the people who were there are constantly learning from each other for those earlier on in their careers or adding more aspirational phase. They could often use some additional assistance from their employers to get to the next level. Here's how rachel. Carlson ceo of guild talked about it on rapid response. Hundred million americans. Over two thirds of the workforce need reskilling or upskilling in order to be relevant employable and be able to survive in the economy of the next decade. The problem is those folks. Don't know how to find what school or program. They ought to go back to let alone what they ought to study. Because it's very hard to figure out what the future of work watts from. All of us. And so i think that education learning and upskilling are part of the corporate responsibility. It makes way more sense for your company to be involved in your upskilling than your healthcare. Right when your body was the unit of production right in the twenties thirties and forties. It made sense why healthcare became a differential benefit. Because you put your body to work everyday when you showed up but now most of us are in a knowledge economy and our brain is the unit production and so i believe in a knowledge economy. Your company should help nurture your brain. I want to give it another potential lesson or change from the pandemic so independent smaller businesses had particularly hard in the crisis and bigger companies with access to capital by and large had an easier time. And so you might get the lesson out of that. Like bigger is better right then. It's better to be target than it is to be. You know the corner store. But talked with andy katz. Mayfield whose co founder and co ceo and harry's the shaving and personal care brand and in early twenty twenty government regulators blocked a billion dollar deal that they had set up to join a bigger company. It was the perfect exit squashed right and then on the heels of that. Kobe hits and yet now. Harry's is valued even higher than before because they focused on internal growth. I'm just trying to think about the advantages of being a bigger player versus going alone. And whether that calculation has changed at all or that calculation is it's always been what i would say is generally speaking. It's good to be monitoring your environment whether you're a big company or a small company because our benefits to being a big company you have a broader asset basis. If a larger number customers you might be able to draw capital or debt more easily but on the other hand of course those things that are bigger assets that give you a larger cushion also could mean that your slower pivot. It's more difficult to change the things start going sideways. It's like you're the titanic and you're sticking and there's nothing you can do to stop you from speaking so bigger is not necessarily better and then similarly on smaller which is because number you could adjust faster but basically what you really have to do is pay attention constantly like are the things that are going to change my market environment some of those could be competitors. Some of those could be technologies. But some of those are pandemics geopolitics or other kinds of things. And you need to say okay. Should i have a fair amount of reserve. Should it being more protective or more aggressive. And so it's an active mind to these things. And i think what you see when you look back at the pandemic is the folks ed okay. I'm going to be active. I'm going to try to turn. What could be amazingly difficult. Circumstances in opportunity so larger versus smaller isn't really what the calculation is. It's whether you're large or your small find that opportunity and look for it as well as the risk. But that there's opportunity out there. This is part of the entrepreneurial mindset part of the reason why the entrepreneurial mindset is useful even in circumstances where you're not planning on being an entrepreneur is to say look here's a negative or here's a crisis okay. Can i think of that as an opportunity. And some way doesn't mean that everything is that way sometimes. It just sucks right but sometimes you can go actually in fact i can make something of this. One topic became not overlooked but overshadowed initially during the pandemic was climate change. I'll get anything deliver song as anybody but it seems like the imperative around climate. Change is now stronger than ever board activists on the rise even at exxon the boom in secondhand purchasing and marketplace's depop being acquired by for one point six billion dollars. I know you buy on depop all the time. Read you and i it's clearly targeted for you in may but how much as a business leader do. I need to be strategizing right now. More about things like carbon footprint and environmental impact. I think many business leaders are strategizing about sustainability and carbon impact. And i think it's a combination of three things. One i think they think that it will become essential and it's a longer term build so certain now is important too is i think they already see buying side. Demand amongst many consumers also rungs government marketplace's regulators instead of going. Okay now in the long term but right now demanding progress is important and can be competitive differentiation. They've also realized is there's ways to do this that are ultimately better for your business has a little bit like that crisis opportunities like well. You know figuring out how to make this sustainable in green you know. Is that just an additional expense line and the answer is well actually in fact if i can figure out how to do that and good economic ways that may be completely not as expensive because when larger carbon taxes come on board or when throwing out garbage becomes appropriately priced as very expensive or dealing with pollution. The sees become super expensive. Then it's like. Oh i'm actually ready for that and ready for that kind of business continuity so i think all three of those things are reasons why it's a good thing to start working on now and then the speed at which are working on it depends somewhat on your particular market your customers your particular situation relative to how carbon is going to be appropriately priced for example but the speed and ferocity investment depends on your circumstances. There's kind of a battle in the tech world. These days between like which tech is going to drive the next phase of innovation overall. Is it going to be or is it. Going to be crypto but sometimes i feel like biotech gets a little short shrift in that i mean biotech enabled the vaccines the mri vaccines. That have been so effective. In the versus crypto battle. Where does biotechs. I one quick note. Which is there's this beam. That's going around saying that is expensive on electricity and this is just literally people either know what they're talking about but are deliberately beating a drum just get people pay attention or they don what they're talking about because if you actually look at it you go sure. Training models is expensive intellectuality. But the run time is action-packed. Pretty cheap second thing. Is you apply to power grids itself and you get a lot more efficiency. And that may actually in fact be net very creative and then the third is when you're really looking at what is generating carbon and all the rest most. These data centers are focused very much on being carbon neutral. All we're using hydro and we're using other things and it's not the place it just allows people to kind of wave their hat and say this is where i have energy problems now. It's a little bit more. Tricky in the crypto arena. Because some of the proof of works things can be expensive but by the way it may very well be that we can figure out how to fix those things in good ways as well now to your specific question on bio bio is extraordinarily important. I think it's being accelerated by software artificial intelligence. I think that we already see the cost of reading. Genomes coming down at faster than moore's law faster than exponential. I think at the intersection of ai. And bio is simply going to be amazing in terms of medicines and in terms of can understanding our genetic conditions and how to fix problems that come down from genetics. That doesn't mean that. Of course there couldn't be concerns like you say wolf. Synthetic biology does the disease get made is co vid. The release of some dumb assery in a lab. You know for example. Well those are legitimate concerns just like the making of killer. Bees in south america which didn't require direct gene manipulation was breeding program but the breeding program is genetic manipulation just has to have less precision than you get with software tools and modern genetic tool so i actually think that when people say what are the technologies that are make massive changes in the future then synthetic biology is next those two together on the stage with everything else at broader concentric circles around it. I'm trying to think of how to take us home here. Read two areas when asked one is about the potential of haves and have nots from the vaccine process access to some certainly live events. Some jobs some schools requiring for the fall is there a a calculation of framework that business leader would use about encouraging vaccines versus requiring vaccines. Look the advice. I'm giving to people who listen to me is simply say card to have vaccine. But if you're going to the office you required have seen and then you know you may at some point get to hey in your office so by the way that plays out to require to have a vaccine and i said well what about your liberties we will. This is one of those cases where we balanced liberties of your own health and your own choices against other people and work is some degree voluntary. And so it's like well. If i'm a leader at a place and someone's i qualify because my beliefs are. I'm not going to take the vaccine. You like well then. You may be ringing the disease in. And why should we take that risk for all of our employees and part of the reason why you take vaccines is because we are all much much safer. Yeah i mean the impact of these vaccines has been extraordinary minute. It's just a terrific triumph of science that we have gotten to this point and i think sometimes maybe we take that a little bit for granted compared to where we weren't some of the depths of the pandemic where some countries still are because they don't have access to the vaccines that we have the numbers. Don't lie about you read if it becomes truly one hundred percent clear that we're post pandemic you're in the clear right. What things are you going to do. I like business personal like. Are there things that you miss. The most so have already started and having friends over for dinner who were vaccinated. so we're all vaccinated. Has been the very first thing because i missed social much more than nails work actually worked perfectly well through this virtual environment and the next month. I anticipate going to my very first. Business conference alan and company's sally partially because the allens are so thoughtful and secure and protective. They're the ones that i would invest the trust in of getting it right. I'm a little torn. Because i'm eager to see people to be out to see the people who matter most but i'm a little wary about being less efficient. I mean i feel like we've got so much done during these times where we have been remote there is a transition. I feel like pulling inside me a little bit about. How do i intentionally want. That were scheduled to look. And how should it look for the people around me. I think it's good to be thoughtful. But i also think it's good to experience it as you go because i think that as we regain our connectivity with other people we will discover what the right balance are what the trade off of getting more efficiency by being able to do everything from one particular place in studio versus go to an office versus travel for meetings and i think they will still be there but it may be a different blend as we re enter a post pandemic world but rethinks again for doing this. We've been working together for over a year now and it's all been remote and i look forward to being able to be in person. Share some of this stuff face to face is well bob. This is always fun. Thanks again for doing this. And i'm bob sathian. I'm read often. Thanks for joining us now. A final word from our exclusive brand partner capital one business We build a tremendous team in the plant. And now it's like we wanna play ball. We're back one more time with jeff. Braverman of nuts dot com. He's been telling us how elevating his team will improve operations as business scales but he's also hiring at the senior management level. And that's gonna mean letting. Go of some control to do what i wanna do. I've made some strides recently. It's not about me. It's about the team. Because i can't do the work of fifty people anymore. What i'm thinking. When i was hiring hiring the right people to frankly make fun people who are smarter than i am. We have tons of ideas. The key thing that we need to latch onto is now execution sharing. The rains can be scary. When you've got a family business and jeff would like to keep it in the family or get contact by investors all the time but it put on a path where you maybe lose optionality i like the idea of keeping this independent. My sons will. They'll be a place for them. I we nice. I think family businesses a nice thing. Nuts dot com has come a long way from that stall in an open air market in newark new jersey dream a few nights ago about being this little kid in the store gave me like the chills. It was like so humbling on my god. Look what we've done locally built. I think my grandfather would be really proud whether you're running a third generation business or a brand new startup building. A business that will endure is both a challenge and an opportunity. That's what an cave. Here's from the entrepreneurs. She works with capital one to know what jeffs grandfather created lives on and his grandson. It gives you goosebumps while you may not always here that it's going to be passed on to a next generation you do hear. How do we nurture this baby. Almost that is a business and do you keep it continuing to evolve stay relevant and create an impact for the future. I think that's the commonality capital and business is proud to celebrate business owners as they innovate to unlock the next chapter of their success as with every ad on masters of scaled down entrepreneur. You just heard from was real and unscripted because capital one is a financial institution. It's important to them to be transparent about the relationship with the business owners.

"Back you way. More victims in south florida. I'm pam who so fox news. The number of dead at the site of building collapse has risen to nine but as first responders. Fill plastic buckets with debris. They remain optimistic. That there could be survivors in air pockets that may have formed. We don't have a resource problem. We just have a look. We need a little more. We gotta get lucky surf side mayor. Charles burke it on fox and friends there are still dozens of people missing mounting questions about the state of the building. After an engineer's report from three years ago highlighted some concerns. It's not conclusive but it does raise a lot of red flags. Everybody i'm back mic drop. Just keep going. we're back everybody know takeover trump anyway. Where was i. Don't know law was. I hear no cukor louis Okay well lana also said before. I was rudely interrupted by the internet here so She said that she was sad to say goodbye to the. Lana character that i get to. This part is important. She said she was sad to say goodbye to the line of character because it was what she wishes that she could be. And i heard that and as like this lana character. She said goodbye to that. Lana character long before she was released from debit me because they took miro from her and obviously he left before she did but they took her accident away from her and so everything that she was doing as a character in the last few months i mean she could have. She can do that anywhere. Just change your name and you can do that same character. You can do the underdog you can do. The person struggling to to overcome your fears in its cetera. That has nothing to do with the when people think of the lana character they think of the ravishing russian which has not been doing over. The last. Several months talked about the survivor series. Match where she backed into a win by not doing anything she thought it would have gotten over bigger. Had it been in front of the fans mcmahon wanted to finish. He thought it was hilarious. If she didn't get in at all because it did never been done before that it was supposed to be a table spot in the match that was pushed back from roman because of a plan table spot in his match that night talked about the thunderdome era. How working in front of the fans was very difficult. She was happy to be out of the performance center. And live in the thunderdome. Because mcmahon couldn't rethink the show and rewrite thing. Seventeen times is she saying. That's what happened in annex t but not on the main roster surprised by how much he gets buried on twitter and the dirt sheets feel she resonates with a live crowd much more than the internet. Jericho said the live. Audience is reflective of ninety percent of the overall audience. While the real hardcore fans are about ten percents so those them the highlights of on this thing. It's on talk it's jericho which you can find on I tunes and i guess i tunes anymore. Apple music apple podcasts. Whatever it is but any thoughts on this mike. Well i guess you know. From how a lot of people have spoken about. Mark aranaud Maybe johnny wouldn't throw as many insults or cold baby is releasing people is is mark. Iran has been. I guess accused of The no cut thing is interesting Good luck finding a job. That's going to write in there that you have a no cut deal in your i. Just i find that place please. If that's the role she's going with the comeback to pro wrestling will never see. Cj perry involved in pro wrestling ever again. Because i mean do you give. who would. Who would you give something like that to brian. rick flair hulk hogan the rock steve austin even those people. Would you give them a full no cut. You can do basically anything you want. Type of contract and we. We have no way to release you. Well the problem with this whole thing. Mike to me is in most jobs. They can fire at any time. Her comment here is her. She wants a no cut because of the wrestlers living in fear of being released. Okay we're all living in fear of being released from our jobs. I mean i'm sorry. Especially you lay forks. That's how else but the thing to me is like if you work for impact or ring von or eighty w or new japan or pretty much any other company in the world. I never hear from wrestlers that are living in fear of being cut at any time. That's an issue with people in dublin. Me because in fact regularly at least a time or two a year they just start cutting people and there's like no there should be awarding wording cuts coming. You're right but fandango. Was there for sixteen years. Was he not look. How many people's long careers there. And look at the money they make and the security they have when they are in their your time. There may be very short. It goes at the whims of sometimes a crazy old man. You know that signing up whether you did your due diligence or not. That's on you. So i understand that wanting that safety but we all look how many right to work states there are look how many specially down south everybody is a moment away from being fired without any reason or very light reason whatsoever. I i get it but like in a field like this in a field like with pro wrestling. I mean seems to be a lot to ask for. But who the hell am i right. I would also like to say one thing about the jerk sheets. Okay i am not going to lie. I have made comments about. Lawn is wrestling before okay. Good now it's not even so much. Here's the thing it's not. Yes how do. I even say this. Think about it com. It's it's not even so much. Lana personally okay. I would bet in fact. I know that lana is better in the ring. Now after having been trained by tj and natty and doing all of this extra work to get better okay. I'm sure she's better. My issue with the matches i saw lawn in are twofold one has to do with her to a degree one absolutely nothing to do with her w. e. has this thing. It's e. thing where the women have to do these spots. Okay and my pet peeve. Oh i'm gonna lift my leg and fall into the split son. Somebody i'm going to do. I just watch it. And it's gymnastics okay. I don't wanna see gymnastics on my wrestling show. I wanna see wrestling. Tj nettie do. They came up in the dungeon. A right. they're not. I would be very surprised if they're in they're all they're working on with. Lana is a bunch of gymnastics. They probably are teaching her out to wrestle. When i watched raw i c. Three minute matches where there's a bunch of roles and there's a complicated spot and there's a flip and blah blah blah. i wanna see people wrestle. That's my opinion. Okay if you don't like my opinion you're welcome to not like my opinion. Many people don't okay. But i don't see wrestling matches me. I was a wrestler. And i was a gymnast. What i see what i watched. The screen is like to me. it's not good wrestling. and it's not good gymnastics. That's my issue okay. I have nothing personally against. I have nothing personally against lawn is wrestling ninety percent of the criticism. I have about lana has nothing to do with. Lana it has to do with the booking of the lada character when they did that deal and i listen to dave and i'm not saying dave's wrong. Because he was right they were trying to get her over but when i look at their idea of getting her over. Oh vince thought it would be funny for her to win with never getting in the ring they thought they could beat her every week and she could cry and she could lose and somehow she was going to get over. I didn't believe that for a sec. Can't that's not lawn his fault. That's the fault of the guy's laughing thinking it's funny back in a moment for life with colton amana l. o.

You're listening to wrestling observer. Live with bryan. Alvarez and mike zimmer on the sports byline broadcasting network back in the show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer alive mike zimmer. Bb also wrestling observer dot com very happy to be joined after ten months now by colt cabana called. How're you doing today Ten months we had our little observer. Baby didn't we. We did have our little observer baby and you now coles are having a new baby. I guess wrestling anonymous is your new baby. And you're actually you're actually gifting your old baby to the world is that right. Yes i've i've given of given birth. The wrestling anonymous. And i put up for adoption the art of wrestling. It's something yes i started. New podcast got wrestling anonymous. Where i take a voice. Memos essentially google voice memos from the fans and they tell their stories. All different stories has been so fun. So far i've been running for about five weeks and the cool thing is like i get them. I edit them. I post produced them. I put it all together. And essentially i don't know if i'm necessarily the host on the curator of these amazing calls in the cause of their calls are from all over but they're fun for the most part you know there was a guy who Hukou basically took his one year old child and started stretching him plus he started like moving around and stretching them like a little baby and he was like one day. You're going to train with me little kid and the and the guy was just like i don't know what's going on at taco. He can do whatever. Oh stretching when you wake up in the morning and you stretch. Stu was doing. No i got it. I got it and there's this calls. There was one who a wrestling fan watched. Someone die in the stands That was wild. Call the other week. You know talk about their experiences. Being there with. oh hardouin. Heart passed away in kansas city. And they're all over the place and it's really fun. It's really fun to do so far. Well you know we've got here cabana. I have inside sources in the wrestling businesses. You may or may not know. And i have been given a clip of one of your shows do you. Would you like to hear it please. Of course let's check it out. Father my father now me got interesting trust in the early eighties and now my kids. I have kids and my son likes watching with me. My dad always told me the story of my grandfather. My grandfather go to a local arena and He tells the story about my grandfather and my grandfather's friends they burned freddie blassie's car and according to my dad i guess there's a free blessed documentary where he talked about that specifically happening in southern california to dave grandpa. Who's in his mid nineties. He'll laugh and then. I don't know what you're talking about like liking murdered. Somebody you know you don't some funny cold. I gotta i gotta say this year about that clip and what you're talking about earlier. So is kind of a weird segue but earlier. We're talking about del. Wilkes passed away and he did these interviews talking about how he took one hundred and fifty pain pills and i was talking about. How if a normal person. here's this they just. It's impossible to them but if you know what. He wrestlers There may be a slight exaggeration. But like these guys. They took hundreds of pain pills a day. And your call. You just had right there. That's one of those deals. Where when you hear stories from wrestlers you hear oh in my day. We had so much heat. This guy burned my car. And you're like you know maybe these fans were manned slice to tires. But i mean come on in and burn car then you find out that in fact this stuff actually. It happened and this guy was an accomplice to car burning here. Yeah i like this call because we always here for the people. We hear from bobby heenan who got caught roddy piper. Who got stabbed. But we never hear the people who do the standing or do the shooting or throw. The rest of quarters of puerto rico. So is interesting to hear from their perspective. That's why i like to call it. Put it on the show. How did you come up with this idea. Because obviously fans love to hear these stories about wrestlers especially behind the scenes stuff that goes on and travel stories and things like that. How did you decide to flip the script and actually hear from some of these fans that are are quite unique in have lived Several lives inside of one. Some of them for years for years fans wanted to be on my art of wrestling podcast in the art of wrestling was just me in the locker room talking to different wrestlers and i feel that people were so they got so into the show that they felt that their stories needed to be heard also and it just something. I wasn't allowed. I just wasn't what my show was at the time. And it's something that i've always wanted to do is give the wrestling fan of platform. And then there's so many other. Inspirations it's a podcast called love and radio which had a hotline show Whether it's a beautiful stories from anonymous people from my friend. Chris gathered Whether it's college does just like this with brian. Might you know. Like i've always loved the call in show the idea of it and there's so many other things but it's something that i've i've wanted to get back into the weekly podcast game and took me a while. The yard wrestling took a lot out of me. I did for almost ten years as five hundred episodes and this is something new and fresh and ready to jump back in having such a great time so the fans really cool won't have you show is a is a great idea but then there's always there's execution so what you have done is actually wise because you can basically go through and listen to everything. I and i would presume that if someone has a great story. But they like babylon for nineteen minutes. You can shot the thing up right and make it. Yes yes wiseman yes. Which i right. It's the perfect thing. And it's something that i that helps the show flow. It's you know it's only a thirty minute broadcasts so But if the caller is talked like they do sometimes it would be an hour and thirty minutes. So we've we've done a little bit. Our how cathartic heavy found this for some of those fans that maybe you did have to a little bit of editing at the end but you listen to this whole thing and it's like wow. This person really needed to get this off their chest or really wanted to to give this back and and really reveal how much wrestling is. Affected them are impacted them or how much it helps them at some point in their lives. How much is this. Been really helpful and you've been able to play a kind of a shadow psychologist or sociologist. Here now becoming the dr phil professional wrestling. That's my new thing it has and there's been some great call so far there. There's one haven't played a couple of. I haven't played. There was a thirty eight year old mom.

Aws they're super excited. So these are calls. That i love. I love those fashion it calls. I love playing those calls in the heart strings. But then i also you know love playing a call where a guy saw new jack try to piggyback to women and then they both fell on this on the sidewalk. It's a big range you know. It's funny because i'm not gonna lie when you first said that this podcast is going to be all stories from fans and i'm just going to be the curator as like what but i thought about it and you know david i do. Qna's in association with events a lot and we meet listeners and readers and what i thought about it it was like this actually does happen to dave and i all the time like you'll you'll meet some listener and they'll go. I got to tell you this story and they tell you this story. It's like that's an awesome story. So the morning they think about it and then we played the clip of course and then you had a couple of ts here as well actually sounds because you don't fans they they have stories.

And you know Professionally make a name for them so we've seen people now at eight a. w. darker could now go to the independence and maybe not charge more than twenty dollars and maybe make a little money and so that's something that i don't know a lot of people are talking about.

Probably having that opportunity with our parents to go out and watch the harlem globetrotters. I remember as a kid going with my mom and dad and how special. It was an over the years being able to watch the globe anytime. I had that opportunity. They are sparse. Part of the sports. I khan and landscape of america and they go way way back. We almost lost him. Though as in nineteen ninety-three they were purchased out of bankruptcy by mannie jackson. And the interesting thing about that. Is that manny used to play a harlem globetrotters and of course the harlem globetrotters in two thousand and two were inducted into the basketball hall of fame and mannie jackson joins us many. What is it about the globe that are so special endorse because it's interpreted by people something that they can identify with. They can aspire to be. And i think the the notion of laughter and fund virtually universal across generations across borders and and the globetrotters fulfilled a need that people have just to relax and enjoy a game played at a level where where they can understand it at a giant. The other thing is is that they have great social significance. What is that and how has it changed over the years. Well a part of let go back. Originally back in the thirties and forties it was. It was a tough situation for the globetrotters to tour barnstorm and the way they did and overcome the barriers of of being i a non league organization playing professional basketball then being african american during the time of Great prejudice some extent at apartheid and still bill bridges and sometimes hostile areas and perform in the way they did and that seemed to have carried over into next generation of days when you had gentlemanlike metal arc lemon and and curly ill who were were ambassadors the game along with marcus saints and And goose tatum and into the days players. Who just seem to to look back and say that's part of about thing. Fan friendly caring about the social issues around the world and being good citizens ambassador goodwill not familiar with their history. How they started. Can you enlighten them. Interestingly the team started in chicago on the south side by a fellow named dick hudson who was a sports sufficient. I don't that time baseball and basketball. And he was working around. The supply ballroom is south side Nightclub chess club and the globetrotters. Then we call the savoy big five actually performed at that nightclub and he's five or six kids came out of inglewood high school there and On the south side of chicago ape sacristan worked for the park and recreation district. They're in coaching and athletic stuff. And got the no hudson and the paris price of the harlem globetrotters made a proposition as history would tell it to the cuts that he could take the team on the road and and do more with than indica do at the at the nightclub at the savoy ballroom and in fact did deliver a carry the team to wisconsin iowa and of course the first date was eleanor. Apes aberdeen was by far the genius behind the growth of the harlem globetrotters. They'll question the probably the most creative and innovative promoter marketeer and history sports During those times it was an interesting dichotomy was not here is an all black team in here as an owner who is a wide. Ju i particularly look at the time and very segregated prejudice and legally Difficult time for For african americans and define a young jewish gentlemen. Who said i think there's something in these black fellas and there's something in the sport of basketball and they're stumping and barnstorming that i'd like to explore at and not regard the issue of racist thing as significant as the opportunity to do something good and something different than build a business weather when you take a look at those early days. How african americans look upon this team. Well and those days if they were just great basketball players no question. They're the greatest. The basketball players on on on the chicago midwest area and i think african americans across the country. It looked to the new york. Rents who renaissance who played consistently the championship level and suddenly on the horizon with some urging team out of chicago that they had heard about called the globetrotters apes averaged in new york love trotters and they were very proud of both teams in fact the championship games that were played in the early forties with filter houses. The be full the watch. All the teams what i'll call the barnstorming teams in the non league teams. Come together and play for the national championship and those are big time. Events in the club daughters and iran's were virtually in those games so there's a lot of pride and the globetrotters lot of pride in the rents and a lot of the fact that black folks knew there are watching the best of basketball at that time even though the lease segregated did the teams trying to prove anything back at that time. I mean i know that they were segregated. Not able to play in a lot of places and against white teams. Was it their way of showing that they had talent and showing off in a big way. I think it was. It was an urban style. It was different way of expressing themselves through the game. I don't believe the style behind the back passing and dribbling and the dunking. The fast breaks were thought of as showing off. Except if you look at it from the white game perspective it was different because it was afro centric. It was thought of being clowning showing off. But i think there was just a high skill level that had not yet reached the all the white came yet and i think the globetrotters were so dominant against opposition. They played around they around the country that they began to to do more. And what we call showtime in today's terms showtime and fans tend to like it and they did more and more of and drew more people and south. They can combine their showtime tough competitive play and they won the hearts and minds of people all over the contracts of the minstrel shows and how people while they thought it was creative. They also made fun of it. And i'm just wondering While these athletes had great skills manny Did did people make fun of the way they played that they weren't serious competitors. I don't know who those people would bay because the globetrotters never got beaten by anybody. They played against including the league. Champion lakers and forty eight and forty nine. I think there were there. Were there was a move afoot. And i'll say this trying to be socially sensitive is that can to discredit what these guys were all about and what they were doing as being you know negro ball or something wasn't worthy of being accepted on a broader basis. But the record would say you know they could play. They simply could play like no one has ever seen. Anyone played before. Also wasn't the type of Activity that that black athletes particularly black basketball players wanted to be a part of Was it their vehicle to express themselves at that time. Many of you were an african american back in the thirties and forties and actually in the fifties. They're the only option to play with a barnstorming team like the harlem globetrotters or like the new york rents and the best of the back ball ball. Players aspire to gather that point to be accepted by the harlem globetrotters of the rents to play competitively and make a living playing sports. It was the only place to go. And because these teams are so good the rents and the globetrotters there was a place to be part of the globetrotters as a player. And i'm just wondering how you and the other players how you compared the the crowds and the fans outside the united states as compared to inside the united states well the crowds and that's a good question the crowds inside the us Took the position they were coming to see a black team. Play and with the globetrotters because the advance publicity. Ben these were group clown showman until we beat the college all stars until the team beat the lakers. They weren't taken seriously thought of the being clouds soon as a bunch of black ballplayers come into play and they'd group great crowds here in the us when you let the us and for the first time and the team left the usa left the us movie stars. They were so popular become so dominant basketball. There were two feature films made on on on their story in our times servicing the others so they left the us they showed up in europe and places as as stars of of the silver screen as they say. But what happened. What i found is i played which shocked me. I didn't go into poland are to australia. Russia and those places as an african american i one of those countries is american and one of the northern africa and places. I was shocked to see that. No one thought of this team the these athletes all of us is more than just americans and representatives of this country and we felt like we were truly in fact embassador of goodwill and he's countries because in many cases were the first contact many people at may two americans. You know firsthand. I've seen some video or film of the globe's traveling around the world and it must have been unique to go into certain countries especially european countries to see tall black man. i'll tell stories about they. They leave the hotel and early afternoon and start walking towards the place to eat our to our the arena the venue where they were gonna play and adversely like piracy would follow him. First of all these guys were to get up close and personal with with such an unusual spectacle and I know my own experience. Back in the sixties they want to touch. The skin was dark but As time went on these guys research lovable lovable candidate characters at people that The crowds are big numbers. repeat performances where it demanded and it became just really part of the landscaping countries. Outside the us. I wondered with the barnstorming aspect of that team. How hard it was for the players night in and night out to be cheerful to be happy knowing they were climbing on buses. They were going to this little town the next little town. How hard was that for the basketball family of the globe's to as a good subject to talk about you. Think about it both in this country outside the us many people had not experienced the game of basketball at the level. The globetrotters rebel to play at the globetrotters had the most unusual physiology and physical Situations to withstand the schedule. I would say without doubt outside this country and certainly maybe inside this country. They were the ones that popular is at the grassroots level. The game of basketball. We're talking about one of the great american sports icon the harlem globetrotters with mannie jackson. Whose the owner and the chairman of the harlem globetrotters.

Forty-five this is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's rod bar. Mannie jackson is with us. We're talking about the team that he owns. And that's the harlem globetrotters. He's the first african american to own a major international sports and entertainment organization almost lost the glow vs nine hundred nineteen ninety-three. They were near bankruptcy. What happened with the team. And the organization. Manny the period of the of the seventies with kinda like the american idol phenomenon. Going on television where the players were tremendously exposed television lies and cartoons and comedic shows that were on two or three times a week and everybody in the country new. Those gentlemen new their television presence. What followed in the eighties was an organization ownership organization that tried to capitalize on that on that talent but as a players aged as the direction of the company became more focused on being like the television version versus being like the what. I'll call the original the original intent version of the company kind of lost. Its way i think. Fans kind of lost interest in the organization. I think it lost some much credibility as nba started to take off and by nineteen ninety one and ninety two it was it was in pretty bad shape as a brand and i lost his following and let the chore was or the challenge was in nineteen ninety three and ninety four was to to bring the organization backup to a level that new fans and fans could appreciate again and give it something unique enough that people will want to spend their discretionary time to watch. And what did you decide to do to do that. Well interestingly i. I took it over i was affected by what i thought was a lack of interest and i had decided to shut down and i thought selling posters in maryland and and doing a movie or a book on the team with the woody. Great and canonize just some of the great players that had come through the organization. Shortly after buying the team i realized that the arena managers. Were saying if you bring the team back and performs. Well there's a nucleus of moms and dads uncle said we'd like to share this experience with their with their youngsters so we did a one year tour with the idea of having a farewell tour and it was so popular that we put teams together next year and went out and what we did was go back to the beginning instead. What made this team popular. Not in the eighties or the seventies or the sixties. What made it popular want to begin. Which is what you should do it. Most brands find out but its original intent was and we found out that people thought they were great basketball players and they were the greatest. They can beat anybody. We thought they were excellent retainers. They've become known as charitable and goodwill and apes aberdeen had. Guard the reputation as being Well call a great promoter but a man of great integrity who was able to move freely and easily many cultures around the world in this country so we started out saying we'll take those four or five things we'll build organization around that. I know that for a long time. They played the washington generals that fourteen. That never won any games. And now you've kind of done a mix and match Do you still play a a team. Like the washington generals probably two hundred exhibition games. Here we just simply show off. We demonstrated what can be done on the basketball court. So it's like watching highlight fell right in front of your eyes and seeing you know. The laughter provided by by by by the comic on the team and seeing exhibition. Kind of stuff that you only see on swale step. It sits on. Espn or on television. We do it live in front of people and then we have this interaction with the audience. That is kind of unheard of the day where the players are all front fan friendly. But if you recall back in nineteen ninety-five to overcome the of just being you know. The clouds are exhibitions. We were very fortunate to to to get in touch with kareem abdul jabbar and we ask arena put together an all star team from guys in europe and the us across europe and that was a real challenge and we played like eleven or twelve major cities in europe featuring the harlem globetrotters playing straight out. We won ten and eleven games and the crowds are good but the reaction was good. That globetrotters are back as a credible basketball team. And we'd never looked back from that point a big building on being a credible basketball team as well as being great entertainers. I know in the past The globe's have played against us college teams but the nc double a. Now has announced the colleges would no longer be allowed to schedule men's exhibition basketball games against non collegian opponents in your quote was i think it's absolutely clear after this action that the nc double a. needs reform aggressive reform overall. Maybe the right thing to do. But it's really really questionable execution and i agree with you. Manny i think there's i applaud the nc two a. for stepping up Sing we're going to reform some get through some of the issues that we have. I was concerned that On the world stage that their contracts are in place that this simply asked the schools to ignore. Which isn't good for their signed contracts. Secondly i think that the issue that not evolve everybody so it was kinda concerned. They would throw everything out the same bathtub and not look and say we know what the problem is. This deal with the problems and not with you know the university of things. And i thought the way it was announced via the newspaper instead to people like us who we felt we were and we are servants of the nc two a. and servants of these young people in the athletic programs to help them become better. And we spent a lotta time nurturing and spending time with the coaches Major school cultures and with the players to help them see life differently through the eyes of the harlem globetrotters and we've been involved in fundraisers and social events at each of the schools have been two plus give them a great level of competition and we thought we were part of the good guys. In this scenario. I know a lot of people are going to be interested in how you go about getting players today. Well i have one of the one of the greatest recruiters in basketball. A young man named chad growth and he spends a lot of time Scouring the country not only finding the athletes and the player but also finding a lot about the background of the player at that is really helped us a service well over the last seven or eight years so in other words you're not only looking for basketball skill but you obviously looking for personality and communication skills as the cool thing about it now. Is that a high school. Coach will call us or an nba coach or call or a european coach for call. And say i've gotta globetrotter type player and it used to be thought of that players being someone who who's kind of a clown now. That is a great ball player. But he's an intellect he thinks he's got the stamina. They've got look. They've got to fill the game and audiences which says that the our supplier group has also senators attending quality people as well as good basketball players For those people that may not be aware of a man. He was named as one of the thirty most powerful and influential black executives by the harvard. Business review but he had very humble beginnings. I was very interested in knowing that you were born in a railway boxcar and ilbo missouri. It was an interesting time back in those days because my family had been came from the south and they come to missouri to work in the job grandfather. Get at the time. It was on the radio and heap the rose quickly to being a railroad straw boss and one of the benefits he got from doing that was Was the opportunity to and one of the box. Cars were set up as homes and so about the time of the end of the middle of the world war. Two our family lived in that box car with Anchors eight or nine of us that live comfortably in there as the grandfather and uncles worked on and that was interesting beginnings because we always saw was The next spring getting past the floods and getting the railroads going again and suddenly we got moved into saint louis and saw different level of life than our aspirations and selling online saint louis change from the railroad to getting college educations and and moving forward in life and i can say we're blessed by meeting some great people little town of where i was raised and having the opportunity to play this great great game of basketball In a way that got several of his college educations and allowed us to have access to the kind of things. We're doing today many. Let me ask you a question. businessman-to-businessman because i started this network when there was not a sports talk radio network back in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and i'll never forget the the seed in the essence of it is when i had duke snider sitting in here and i was doing a local show on a man called and said you know renovated thirty five years to talk to duke snider tonight. You're giving me the chance. And that was the seed for lodging sports byline back in one thousand nine eight. We started with twelve stations. And now two hundred. Us five hundred worldwide. and ata. all of that. I i say that because do you feel as maybe i do to some degree that you're a protector of something very very special a legacy in is it hard to both businessmen and also somebody that realizes that they have in their hands from a business standpoint something very very special and it needs to endure wish. I had more time to have to that question. That's a good question here. Here's my orientation when someone says how have you done so well. How do you do so well in life. it's i. My mother was a domestic she worked for for for people and she made a nice living as a domestic and she was well respected so put that his background. Wherever i've gone in the corporate world with honeywell and my own businesses. I've never felt. I was anything other than someone supplying a service for somebody. You know what i'm saying. And that attitude has served me well. And i feel very strongly that if i can supply give a great service to someone else. I'm going to be good in business. So i've not been intimidated by by being a business because my first goal was to make the people that i worked for assumed i worked for. Make them happy. Understand what they want and then respond to make them happy as an entrepreneur. I felt like the hurdles were always. You know high to get over. But i always wanted to find out very quickly. What's the essence of this business guessing. Some of the people who who engage me. And i try to give that back as a service to them. I don't see competitors. I only see the people. I'm trying to serve many. I wanna thank you very much. It's been a wonderful time with you. And i appreciate what you're doing with the globe as they. They touched me. When i was a young kid and i know they've touched a lot of others and they've passed on from generation to generation. You are welcome here anytime.

Show sports byline. Usa here's ron bar. One version joins us on sports. Byline he here's a guard for the harlem globetrotters. He's been with them. Double digit years and i remember his name from his days at arizona. State where he played college basketball and he tours the globe. Of course the globe's have a couple of teams They have two to be exact. So they tour the entire world one. When i think about the harlem globetrotters. I think about an experience. And i'm just wondering the first time you ever heard about the globes or ever saw them actually. I'll probably much like a lot of fans out. There actually saw the team on. Abc sports when he used to play on there I would sit in on saturday mornings and sit there and watch key size. We throw water and mess with craft The way that he does and just fell in love with him at the time. You know eight nine years old. I fell in love with them and actually get an opportunity to play for them. Was a dream come true. Where did the dream of playing with the globe's Come into existence with you because most players when they go to college think of the nba rather than playing with the harlem. Absolutely i'm sure but for myself. All sort of a needle in a haystack. I didn't really expect our want to go. Nba after college Not you know. Not even thinking about the harlem globetrotters because at the time that i join the goal trials were kind of down The team was kind of not existing. Here too much him But actually after scout came and approach me Giving me the opportunity to come out there and try out is that you know. I think you got some. You can work well with Jump at the chance. I was like okay. This is something. I grew up watching it and i would love to get this. Try one of the things that are the. Nba looks for his talent. If you're guard talent if you're a big man. What is the harlem globe. What are they. That's a good question. A lot of people ask that question because that is something you will go. Okay well what are you looking for. Well first of all they are looking for a great basketball player first number one our foundation. We are a great basketball players at the same time to go. Have a long history semi nine years of good family. Wholesome entertainment of course they want a good person and then they want someone with some character someone. Who can you know some sort of flare that they can put out there on that floor and people instantly be drawn to it. Yeah personality is what i would think would be the thing that drew you to the globe. Trot- absolutely now nali that after really getting a chance to to know the globetrotters all the community stuff that they do I just loved it. They had the whole package in everything that i was about. The glow trials were about so it was a perfect match. Let me digress. For just a second and go back to where you grew up which was compton california. It's a pretty areas or not. It is when i actually grew up there. It was just kinda calmed down now. The whole gang thing and Drugs kind of calmed down. But when i was there it was pretty pretty Rapid the reason why i asked that question is what was it like for you growing up because i would assume that maybe sports was a vehicle for you actually. I wouldn't say it was actually a vehicle for me. Because i was again. I was a blessed child. Because i had my whole family. There you know. I had my mother father grandmother. They extension uncles onto. I couldn't do anything wrong so Basketball was just something fun for us. It wasn't necessarily outlet. Could i had so many other things that i was doing In school but My family love basketball and We you know our neighborhood. My grandmother's house was a house where everybody came and play basketball. Everybody eight and so we found basketball there and you know i just went through competent as if it was beverly hills. You know normal city. I couldn't tell and we know it's not it. Was your uncle that introduce you to basketball. It was my uncle. He played at ucla. And with reggie miller and also my aunt. who's on you know she's the female. Nba ref the first female can be a real so we had a family who basketball was you know we loved it and everybody kinda did well in a lot of athletes in the family. A lot of athletes Well of course. I saved my grandmother and grandfather. My father loved basketball other than that. Everybody else's kind of faded off and did other things kind of as so my brother more mr mr. I don't want to say well. The reason i asked that is that. I wondered if there was a lot of sibling. Rivalry what the pickup games must have been like at your house. It was pretty bad but the thing with me is. My uncle really. Didn't allow meet a play with him in his groove rains. Yeah i was too small. Wasn't good enough. So i wouldn't embarrass him but After finally he led me into that group It was some great competition. E one you bring up a very good point about you being so very fortunate to have had an extended family because a lot of families a of kids don't and particularly maybe a lot of black kids don't in the inner city. I'm just wondering that in -veloping atmosphere that you grew up in how is that different from the atmosphere of a kid that grows up in a in a in a fractured family. Well is definitely different. because you begin to rely on of course other things if you come from you know family that doesn't have that extension for myself You know my my family was one that even if you know you didn't headed extension of another family. They will welcome you in and turn you into their family our family so i think it's very different. It's very easy to go off and get into negative things because you're relying on other people so there's a big big difference than i'm really fortunate that i did have what i had one of the things and i think you know the comment. That bill cosby has made about the fact that we all have to take responsibility for our actions. And you're raising your head up and down. I've always felt that we have choices. I it doesn't matter who we do have choices. Is that what ultimately comes down to the choices we make plus the self-esteem we have app. That's exactly it But at the same time there are some we can't leave. Those keys are misguided in a sense. You can make some great choices and you can make some bachelors but if the only thing that's in your face is bad then of course you don't even know anything else so but ultimately when you come to realize that okay there is something else. It is all about choices. And can you know. Leave your own path to where you wanna go if you're gonna take the have to destruction choice and you want to take the path to success in agana choice but it also comes down to the person and you know how they grew up and what. They've always see. I talked with harry. Edwards noted sports sociologist and author the late. Arthur ashe who. I got to know a little bit as well. And he wrote a wonderful three volume history on black athletes. And i remember them saying about the the misguided lure of professional sports that these kids see all this money and they see all this grandeur associated with sports and it really gives them a misconception. About what is out there for does And i you know. I do a lot of appearances with with children in different schools. And you know. I would ask the question you know having you guys wanna be. Nba players and if not all of the keys racing you know very few. It is misguided in the nba. You know there's so many different. Tv shows now to pumped up. You know the players homes in their cars and all this different stuff and the kids really don't understand it is a whole lot to it than just having talent just being a great basketball player. There's a lot of politic- you know politics into and everybody can be basketball players on my how great you grant hill. Oh and i were talking about that. Same thing i said you know. Do they look upon you as the jewelry you have or the car that you drive or if they know your salaries is absolutely and he says what they don't realize the hard work it takes to be able to get here and he said that's the sad thing and he says i don't know how you how you explain that to them are really impress upon them that it takes a lot of hardworking. Not everybody's gonna make it. Well i mean grant hill and other players are fighting a losing battle because it's constantly publicize and if the keys are constantly seeing that as opposed to the hard work it takes you know behind the stage before they hit that floor. Then you can say it all day till you're blue in the face and they won't get what effect do you think just the athletes. The persona that they have has been you know dribble down effect to the kids and what they see and what they do how they act. Well you know the kids today if they see the players And it's something that we'll most kids are thinking when it comes to the players are athletes arou- they don't really understand the difference between the person and the athlete exactly the person the real person in the athlete and i don't think they really are getting that. Is there anything that can be done about that. put reality into it against the you can do is keep talking to them and and keep trying to pump it into There's going to have to. Of course some changes may but i don't know what i mean the. Nba is is making money the way that they're making it so i don't know what changes could possibly me. I know you list is your role models. And i've said this time and time again on his show. Athletes are not role models. And you list your mom and your dad. Absolutely they're they're the ones who raise me How can you not list them as role models and look up to them Especially when you look back on your life where i am today There's no way. I could have got where i was without my mother and my father and my whole family The have to be my role. Miles how is the entertainment aspect of the game itself developed as far as the presentation. I've always been fascinated in that with the globetrotters. Yes well it has changed a little bit and we. We have to change a little bit to keep it fresh. I mean it's been seventy nine years So we always try to come up with some new stuff to keep those old time fans and those new time fans coming out you year. Of course there are some things that we cannot exclude like the buck convenient of water and all those and sweet georgia brown who will take that out as well as the magic circle which is my favorite part show but we do wanna keep it fresh. We always certain certain stuff in there to keep the audience on their feet and and keeping the show fresh and there is always been the one person that could really dribble and a member meadow lark lemon and others like him. I mean that that to me is the thing that's etched in my mind. That main personality that that dribbler. Who is it on the team. Now now curly johnston and he's been on teeing. Eighteen years eighteen eighteen years. He's been dribbling on if for sliding across par with eighteen years. And he's he's he's great. You know you mentioned curly. Neal and marcus haynes contained considered the world's greatest dribbler curly neal is just on level he. He's phenomenal driven out there now. The other thing too. That i think of when i think of of the globe's is the washington generals team that have they ever won. Well not on my watch for seven hundred. Actually they did win nineteen seventy-one they deal in. They they beat us by one point. I don't know how it happened. But they did they. They beat us. How those guys picked. I mean to be on that team actually. I don't know because this a separate entity from the globe always young lot of people think that it's just uh split up and we're playing ourselves but it's actually a totally different entities all by name rick. Lots and now actually. We don't play the washington generals anymore. We played the new york national. Okay the nieuw and that's another great name associated with with the globe right so i'm just wondering how do you go to somebody and say by the way. How would you like to be a team that loses. Everyone does not a job. I would take on your resume. I lose all the time you have traveled all over the world. And i know that you list among the great moments meeting the pope and nelson mandela as well talk to me about the the international travel that that the first time you went out of the country traveling with the globe's the impressions that you actually. It was an eye opener for me as well as exciting at all at the same time you know. Here's a small kid from compton. California playing basketball and my first trip was actually to south. America one is areas. Never forget it. And i never been so scared. Plan in my first game There but it was definitely. I hope in her in the in the crowd receiving us as the home team Kinda loosened there. But i was still afraid but ever since then You know experience overseas has been great. I know one of the things that i remember seeing you. When my dad was stationed overseas the globe's would come in and perform before the military servicemen and servicewomen. And i would think given some of the problems that we've had in the world and everything knowing that we've got so many troops stationed elsewhere that that must be meaningful to you guys. It is ago dude and we. You know we've done that before. Yeah it hasn't been a first thing I think that's probably on top of their with you. Know mandela an implant south africa and those type. Things is playing in front of the troops. Here you got these guys over there fighting for us and we have a chance to entertain them or you know those two hours and relieve them of whatever stresses on their on their shoulders. I know you're relatively young man. But i just i'm trying to imagine how after this type of experience world travel all the fun playing basketball getting paid for. How could you do anything else after this. I don't know that is my problem. You give new meaning dribbling own. Yes our coach takes harrison. Who's been with the team for fifty years.

This is the onion news network. It's free talk. Live here from forks past five two thousand and twenty one at rogers campground in beautiful white mountains of new hampshire very refreshingly cool day it's not eighty five or ninety degrees that has been most of the week. It's a little chilly. I actually had to put on a hoodie. When i came down here but it's warming up a bit. It's a great place to be. There's all sorts of people talk to and things do like anti. You're talking about the poker game last night poker at started kind of late. We did a a one gold back buy in tournament and that was a full table. That was really good. Shiloh the tent. My ten year old won the gold back tournament the night before against all adults and then last night there was another gentleman nam they wind. I think it was win. And he won the gold back so he went ten one dollar. Go back so he was pretty excited. Then we did a cash game after and that lasted until about four thirty in the morning there were definitely interesting characters at the table. I can imagine by four o'clock in the morning. Most of them were hammered. They were and there's a self serve cooler next to us and said they were like their beer. I'm like yep. There's a fridge right there. They were loving life and then jay would come down and bring food and he was like i got burgers. I got sausages and everybody was like sweet. This is the best hint ever also now. J. is your husband. Shallan challen noon. Jay's my husband and do you guys have been up here vending all week. How how versus the porcupine freedom festival. It's a little quieter. But it's nice because we have a toddler chase around so we can actually relax a little bit and eat some food ourselves now and then but it was. It was the craziest pork vest ever But it's really nice. Easing into justice. Quiet crowd But still lots of fun stuff going on. It is very quiet. I've noticed just all week long. It's been just quiet versus porcupine freedom festival which was just extremely mountainous like fork. Fest is the party right. It's the after point is and yet we've managed to be quieter than the porcupine freedom festival is weird to me but you know what i have noticed. As long as people have walked by our sites. I've seen people that i haven't introduced myself too. I'm like hey. I'm angie what's your name and why are you here. They're like i'm so and so. And i'm here for fork fast and first thing i did. You come purport fast. I like nope. I came for fork fast. I'm like sweet and so a lot of people that are here are actually here for our forecast. We were just talking with someone else. Who came in here sunday. Which was the final day the porcupine freedom festival. The festival ended around noon and fort fests officially began the next day. I guess technically there's plenty of people who've come up here just four fork fest like captain. Who regularly does free talk. Live with us. He arrived last night him just for the final few days of fork fast. And it's it's great to see so many people coming together just to hang out and have a good time. Well what. I what i ask is brought to fort fast versus port fast and it was a less Control that people were like. Hey don't have to buy a ticket. I can come in. I can do it i want. I don't have somebody saying you can't go there. Don't you don't have a bracelet at work fast. You just show up and you hang out with friends and you enjoy your time the porcupine freedom festival this year and last year. They were both really open. And i don't know about welcoming. They were nice. They were friendly. they didn't they. Were either us. But did you have a porcupine festival ticket. I did have a ticket. I bought it when it was the early bird at thirty bucks. I got fairly early. Michael we got his when it was fifty bucks. But i didn't do anything for my children. So when i went to register you know i got a slap on the wrist. You're supposed to register your kids. I might but it's free. There's no charge for kids but you still have to know how many that's weird. Yeah had never registered my children that makes me all the more curious in about who these people are that the supposedly attended the porcupine freedom festival on behalf of fork fest but didn't have tickets because as far as i know we all had tickets accept myself but i could borrow one of chris. Wade's wanted to. But i was also a speaker so i had to ticket by fault so i don't know exactly who would have been here. Who did it have a porcupine festival. I talked to the girl that works in the office. Here at rogers and she says next year. We're going to really crack down like if you don't have a ticket uniting coming to visit even the seasonal people because they want to they want to Keep the locals out. We had a little bit of vandalism. We had some attempted theft so the locals are bored and they know. We're having a big party up here. So i think to kind of curb that kind of thing they want to control. Who's coming in and coming out and checking. Tickets is the way they can do that. Yeah i was told that came directly from crosby The owner because he said that there are a lot of people here during the porcupine freedom festival that did not have day passes and so the now doing day passes right. We'll just for the campground. Not for pork fest Even if you didn't have a port fest ticket you were supposed to go to the campground and get a day pass. So people weren't registering with rogers campground. That's why he was irritated. He said there were two gulf. Exactly and he he was he was like no. This won't work next year. we have to change it. Okay well i guess. That's one valid approach. But i mean it's difficult thing to manage right because the campground during the day during the porcupine printer festival. There's twenty five hundred people here allegedly. How do you know which of those are actually paying to be at rogers campground. Exactly what did they give you a bracelet like the blue and white sticky bracelets you put on whenever you first get here rogers. Yeah i forgot to register until we're almost look like oh hey told us. And they said hey. Can you wear these so that we know you're supposed to gear be here but it was one of the bracelets you know if you go to a nightclub and they have like the sticky side. Yeah and so. It was like a one time thing once. Got all nasty and stuff. You had to take it off. And so you didn't have it again and rodgers campground to this yet. They gave it to us. We checked in the friday before the festival and they said hey. Can you just put these on the adults. So we know you're supposed to be here interesting. Yeah get a wristband but then again i'm sort of recognize have also they know when they see me that i'm supposed to be here and i mean you are too you know them very well. They last when i called to pay for my site this year they said. Are you shallows. Mom yes i am. We need to talk and said they reprimanded him for some things last year and they point blank said if he messes up this year. You're out of here. No nothing like thank you from last year. Him on camera climbing on the pool table in the arcade. Oh and i said you know if there's any damages or anything i'll take care of it but he's a wild child and you know you can't really contain him. Well that's unfortunate to here. But the it's i'm getting mixed signals about what the porcupine freedom festival is doing next year versus what rogers campground is doing. It certainly problem if they have people coming in here. Who haven't paid to be at rogers campground how to fix that We certainly hear freetalklive and fork fast. We never told anyone to not pay rodgers. Campground has always been get your camping site. Rv site or motel room. Never just hey just come crash the party exactly so. I don't know how they're going to address that. But i think requiring porcupine freedom festival tickets is realistically not the best way. I think they try that in years past. And i don't see it was successful because i know people would come early and they would be here during the festival and not have tickets. People would come during the festival and just ride in with other people who had a sticker on their car or by by sticker from someone else who had an extra one that didn't have but one vehicle for their site and they would just be able to drive straight through. It also raises the question of people sharing sites and things like that. They're probably not huge fans of that. That means you know it's one less site they're selling and it's more use on their water which is strain so the more people are just putting tents up on sites sharing sites. It's more people using the bath houses. Yeah absolutely because there were severe water problems year. I think most of the public restrooms here were closed down several times well. What happened was at least three times that i know of Someone in the men's room had left the water going when they left and steamed up the bathrooms and that was early early in the mornings and then someone was going around checking them. And i forget the gentleman's name but he was riding the golf guard. And and i said what's going on with the water. Yeah yep and he said well the men had left it on and it but it was never the women this more than one three times that he told me she's turned the water off every time because they just strained it. Well that's one of the things that i've never heard of happening at fork fest right but i mean with the porcupine freedom festival here you do get a more diverse crowd of people who aren't follow interest and hardcore anarchists and who may not consider the value of property rights to be the same as the people at fork. Fast xactly. well. I think it's been as pork fast as the advertising and a lot of people this year with the scam dimac have woken up and see that this is happening. And they're they're new to freedom the ideas of liberty and really got it yet but they're they're want to open up to it but there are still learning but there was a lot of new people that it was just brought a totally different energy this year. It did and the porcupine printer festival of course will happen again next year. I don't recall off the top of my head. What the where i think. It's june the twenty first through july the twenty seventh through june. Something like that. I don't recall the exact dates but you can find it. I guess pork fest dot org. I have no idea what website actually is. Fsp dot org okay. Well it has that. And then there's a link but you can't go to pork fast you can just google pork fast and you'll find it but don't be a gatecrasher. I mean if you're going to come to port fest at the very least if you're going to come to rogers campground at the very least pay rodgers campground to be here. Because you're here on their property and they have employees to pay for taking out trash and cleaning bathrooms and stuff like that. Don't just crash the party or coming up here from fort fast five.

Yes you arrived man day night. okay see. I've been here long enough. Where i legitimately no longer know what day it is. I i did some. I participated in festivities last night. So i'm also a little bit cloudy. I do know date. Is i think i had a very late night as well. I'm trying to shift back to my normal sleeping patterns because this waking up at seven o'clock stuff it's it's not that's not my natural sleep person no not at all. Let's surprise. I hate being up that early and having to leave out early for the porcupine freedom festival at like eight thirty in the morning. Because i didn't want to drive here at noon and set up in the hot sun and all of that it caused through everything out of balance. Right only got three hours of sleep the night before next thing. I know i'm going to bed earlier. Because i was tired. And trying to catch up on sleep when you make up a new term for you. You know jetlag. Yeah we'll call it fest leg. Yeah i mean it's not inaccurate right but you got here and you've been partying because that's what forecast is. It's more of a low key chill relaxed environment than the porcupine faisal was. Oh yeah it. The porcupine for two festival of course is very very high energy. There's a lot of a lot of kids. running around. Kids are beginning to appear today and yesterday again but it appears that they're just they're not here for fork fest. They are just here with families for the fireworks or you know for the camping that sort of thing so there is There are ton of people here. It is unclear how many of them are here for for fast. And how many are just here. But you mentioned at least one person who who has arrived. Who i didn't i didn't even know they were here. And that's the regular caller kirby kirby's here and he came up with Another guy whose name escapes me. I'm sorry bro. But they both the jumped up here from fricken. Indiana long travel for fork fast. I mean for a weekend. Four fest that to make drive like that you would expect someone to spend the entire week up here anyway. It's it's great to hear that there are more people coming specifically for fork fast and expecting some other folks Either tonight or tomorrow at least to stay for you know one night the weekend kind of thing open open. We get some fireworks depending on you. Know what roger's gonna do in the weather if it cooperates at the very least. We're not in a drought so there will definitely be fireworks. I mean unless it's like storming in the middle of them. I don't know exactly. I mean you raise an interesting question. Will there be fireworks with it raining as much as it's going to be over the next few days or at least predicted to be the forecast for this particular. Our we're in right now was for rain and i. I felt a drop. Maybe two but there's a nice summer breeze coming through there. there is a. I don't know if i would describe it as a nice summer. Breezes a bit chilly at least for me this morning but you like it colder than i do anyway so i do like a bit chillier than most normal humans. I like my warmth and comfort. Which is weird being here in new hampshire. Where you know. It's not generally known for being warm. I don't know like i've been here for two years. Now and new hampshire has the full four seasons. There's no it's hot in the summer. I'm not visited spring this year. It went from it did kind of skip spring. I mean we had this like really weird first week of spring where it was ninety plus and then and then we had spring for like a week and then it was summer. It's definitely a spring type vibe here. But that's because we're in the mountains where it's called her anyway but it's like sixty something degrees today a bit overcast and a bit windy. It's it's still not a bad place to be. The some folks went fishing yesterday and then they brought over some fresh trout. Guys sort of had a party like just a few sites over last night. We did a little cocktails with kick ass. Nice and Just sort of you know. Hey come on over guys you know if you want to donate donate but You know let's. Let's sit around a campfire and have some drinks awesome. I mean that's generally the low key sort of thing that goes on here at fort fess People just sent to cluster and sit around talking having a good time. Yeah it was certainly a good time. So many folks Met new people that i hadn't met before in re-met people that i've met but forgot their names shares. I'm nefarious for that well. It's hard when you meet people. Only once a year to remember who they are year after year. I mean you see people more regularly. Obviously it's easier but some people here at the porcupine freedom festival. The i've been seeing every year for the last four years and i look. I know i should know your name. But i don't and i'm sorry there's people here that like know everybody's name now they've been coming for you know what a decade or whatever. It's been so a lot of these people. Are you know people who we see at least weekly or monthly or whatever. Because there from new hampshire it is very much more new hampshire centric here at fort fest than before. Coupon freda festival was and that's another great thing about it. Forecast is really encouraging the move to the free state as much as it is celebrating the people who have moved and that that's accurate assessment. I think it is. And i'm starting to think that you know it may be better to return to the pre party itself next year just moved forward fest to the beginning. I don't know there's a lot that's unclear right now like next year. Presumably fort fast won't even get the fireworks show because it'll be happening on a monday. So that was the reason we kept it behind this year. Okay cool we can get the fireworks show again. Still do the fourth of july. Then i kind of like the carryover fourth of july for the outreach aspect sheriff because you can meet people who otherwise have never heard of you know some of the liberty philosophies or or they have and they just you know maybe they want to know more. It's a chance for us to talk to people who we might not otherwise get to talk to as far as getting the message out. So i kind of liked that and particularly for something called independence day. Let's i mean it used to be that the liberty philosophy you know maybe represented what people think of as americanism you know like the land of the free and all that kind of stuff like freedom used to be the centric thing that pulled people together and you know so if there's people who have that sort of patriotism it a lot easier to talk to them about the philosophy of freedom than it is to somebody who you know sort of doesn't have that or isn't celebrating that you're referring to the fact that a lot of people come here for the independence day celebration. Who aren't necessarily libertarians. Are free staters. Who are anarchists or whatever but you know it kind of feels right that the kind of person who would go camping out for a fireworks show for independence day would also be of in. New hampshire would be more susceptible to the ideas of freedom. Which is what we constantly talk about here on free. Talk live in one form or another. So it's definitely good outreach. doubt about that right I need to get the banners backup relieved their way up there and if the forecast was like hey it's gonna rain every single day and i was like okay. Well some of this can go ahead and be taken down. And then it's like okay. But they need to go back up now really and some of my size need to be replanted. It's a nonstop party here. And there's always something i need to be doing better right or something that i just need to be doing. Nobody's perfect man. Come on yeah absolutely more coming up here from fort fast. Two thousand and twenty one. We're here for another few days depending on when this broadcast it's unclear. Exactly when that's going to be but come down and hang out with if not you can catch us next year because we'll be here again more coming up. This is free. Talk live car.

Come enjoy the festival fork fest dot party now. I'm joined here by thomas and already forgotten your last night. thomas. Friedman i should remember that. And you're you're working pretty regularly with ernie hancock Declare your independence. I had Wh- you have these weird computers here. I described them as weird author unusual. So it's still tell me about them. Tell me about what you're doing okay. Well we're putting forth contests and the purpose of the contest is to promote these pirate boxes. What we call them. And i heard four different four. The hell she doing knows imitate going to be working with the pirating guys of course and made some fantastic context those guys and so the development staff there. They've got me linked up. So when i get back to my home base. I'll be working with them in furthering their idea but the contest is something where we're trying to get innovation in a broad appeal of developers in particular but not necessarily just to go developers could be marketers. People that are just great with three d. printer that want to pack package. Something differently Just any way that you can enhance the value of a pirate box. What's the main thing of a pirate boxes. If it's a small computer very capable computer with eight gigabytes of ram three. Us before it is a lot for raspberry pi. Exactly it's opinion on this one here as a Battery and it has a speaker built right into it so this is a this package alone. Just my cost of the package. Alone is one hundred dollars for just the package that doesn't count the raspberry pot. See something like that is perfect for me. Because i could just fix it to my wall and every time i'm leaving to go to. Es house just you know press a button on it and automatically shoots an email to my probation officer leading her on my way to leverage street. Sir i was gonna ask. What is the practical implication for this. Like because i you know. I'm interested but why would i need one. Yes well different. People have different. Were one of the aspects of this contest is trying to identify the target audience that we're going to hone in on in order to build the right one for that. So so what do they do. Well i-if s the. Are you familiar with interplanetary file system. Yes that's came on the other day and talk show about it for like an hour. He never actually got into. It actually was beyond it being sort of a a library for all content. Yes it's basically f- it's a file system so if you think about the computer the hard disk in your in your computer. It's that it's in a dozen cost anything and it's it's great for sharing. It's like bittorrent in terms of how it works right so and even bid torrance great for large file systems. So the idea is that it can. It's because it's decentralized it cannot be taken down right and so people like ernie and other people whose websites are being censored right. Now have the option of storing it on ibm s where they won't be censored. How do people know what role does this. Box serve in that. It provides a node. It's one of the nodes of. I is one of the places. It's kind of like having a bit torrent on your computer. This has the computer in everything all in one package. Okay very well and There's other use cases to like howard lipman for example has this idea of of creating a A a pirate box. That has a access point. So it's a wireless access point all in of itself which we have the software on here to do that. So you see a student for example. My carry one of those in their backpack with a website on it in broadcasting whatever subversive content soon might want to carry. He also can collect information he might do interviews remotely and then when he gets back home he can hook it to the internet in upload that to my professor and it can go far and wide. Okay and you're giving these away as part of the upcoming chocolate festival. When jackal up this year jack lopez the first two weeks in august. Okay is it always the first two weeks in august it has been. They were talking about moving up a week but because of the fire hazards. We actually are not certain at this point. What right now. The park is close. We can't get access to the park right now. But the monsoon season quote unquote in arizona occurs at the end of august end of july. So we're hoping they'll be enough rain to where the reopened the park. Okay yeah i mean it certainly hot in the half of the country right now whereas over here. I'm almost shivering in oregon or whatever. They've been daily with one hundred ten there. There's pictures on the internet of vinyl siding house. West coast friends are crying. Yeah visceral date. It was miserable here a couple of days. It got very very hot and humid. But you know we're hoping that it's going to clear up by then. Besides it's in the high mountains of arizona where it's cool it was. Phoenix can be one hundred and ten in. It might be eighty five ninety a most in. It's very dry up in the mountains there. So it's it's a great place to have a little gathering. It is the only issue. I have with jack. Lopez you know. It's it's like rogers campground without the actual ground from it. It has no facilities or amenities whatsoever. And i won't even camp out here where there is running water and power so unfortunately i will likely never attend a check elope fest. It's a long ways to go from here to. It is but i mean air travel exists and that makes things a bit easier but yeah good good points. He can't take equipment really not in an airplane. Then i see a lot of abandoned curlers hereafter pork press people you know. Come and pack up. Thanks and they said well. I'm not going to need is cooler. And they'll buy it at the store of camp with and i just donated or be abandoned on the side of the road here. I almost did that last year. But i ended up taking my cooler with me and i totally forgot it existed until i looked in my in the trunk of my car for you know. Four fest related stuff as a cool. I still have a cooler. Yes so that's convenient so you're giving these boxes away. You're doing a fundraiser of some description right. it's not really a fundraiser. actually we just have. We have four prices. This is the top prizes the second prize this one here is a little bit different. This one is a has a one terabyte. Ssd card in sorry. This one has a one terabyte st car. This one has a one terabyte. Ssd drive so it's very fast. This is a very fast computer and It's a quad core processor in this things. A little teeny form factor. But it's very capable a lot of people. These desktop machine really. Yes that's certainly. A lot of power kremlin to a raspberry pi. I'm impressed. I wouldn't i wouldn't have expected you know pie mother. The last time i looked at raspberry pies was probably like five or six years ago. That's changed a lot since then. Yeah it's impressive to see what they are now capable of doing late. The little computer have here has all sorts of little indicators and stuff on it and you know it's amazing what you what can be done and these cases presumably were three d printed. Well no these are. Both commercially made cases. This is a metal case. It's passively cooled. Meaning there's no fan to get rid of most of the heat right. And it also has an infrared. These are great for cody boxes. You know if you've got a a a a tivo type of replacement software. Iran that easily and there's an infrared rick Receiver so you can point. Your remote control added to control the tv if you wanted to make your own dvr out of the thing. That's what the case was built for. I think for that but It's it's perfect form factor for raspberry pies. Well i mean for pirate boxes as well. So how can people join this lottery type giveaway thing. How can people take part. I'm glad you asked. There's a website called pirate. Box dot info if you want to read up all about what's involved in getting involved with the contest. Just go to pirate box dot info and all the details about how to start with contest. You'll download an image to start with which gives you all the pyre bach software. I've been developing over the last six months or so. Okay it gives you a good base. But you don't have to do that. I mean if you're a marketer you may not care about that you miss it. I know how i'm gonna sell this. Thanks you might come up with promotional materials. Another thing that people might do they might make a mesh network developer. So there's lots of avenues you can contributed and compete in this contest. Okay so it's pirate box dot info direct. Nothing so unusual or anything like that. No okay we also have. Never know with libertarian. And someone who works ernie hancock who's your l. Is like declare. Your independence with hancock dot com. He's got to be short. I'm curious what you think. The retail on these will be in when they're in production. Okay well when we finally arrived at what. We're going to sell for production estimated costs for the top prizes thousand dollars for this. That's just won't be pricing seven ninety nine. We're coming up here from fort fast. Two thousand and twenty one. This is free talk live. I've been told no in many different ways that you to do something here around one trouble here actually. Hey think excuse me. Thou worked today odd running coming out. What did you jerk.

Five to twenty one here at rogers campground in beautiful and very windy. White mountains of new hampshire in fact we had to start recording for a bit because the wind was today are eighteen miles per and be. Mike's were picking it up and they're probably picking it up now but you know. That's that's what happens when you record at a festival. We're joined now by thomas friedman who's been talking about pirate boxes now. We left the last segment discussing the the estimated cost of these. And and that's really the the point at which you know. I balk because if i'm gonna spend a thousand dollars something. I wanted to be tremendously more flexible and convenient us but as we were talking about the air with pets we had to stop recording because the wind here is sort of constant today. This isn't directed for the end user. Right not really. I mean i think the price points that we're offering these things are going to be for. People like podcasters in ernie handcock with is declared the independence and other people who have a need for protecting their conduct could be companies. Companies might have a need for having a portable device. And also another thing about this. Is i guess. The end user might have an entry point if they just want to help the ip s ecosystem the ipo cloud. If you will to try to make it easier because the more of these things that are out there with content on them the faster it is for them. It's way scales scales very effectively them right similar to bit bit. Tori people seating something faster than if you have five people seating it exactly. That's really cool. I forgot the question. I was going to ask. Had a follow question related to what you were just saying. And i immediately forgot it to me all the time. It's early in the morning here. Rogers campground it is so. Tell me the website again. Oh i was going to not. That isn't a interplanetary file system. Now that's a sort of protocol. We had ernie on a few days ago to discuss it before recap to the listeners. Who weren't listening that day. Describe it for me. Briefly police all right with the interplanetary fall system is very i guess the closest analogy would be bittorrent but it's different protocol bittorrent and I it scales the same way. That bit torn. Does you. don't see it that way but it's basically just a file system you store content. Large small doesn't really matter but the more of the nodes that are out there with your content. So let's say you have pointing point as in new york city and point b. is in dallas texas. And you are going to put up a say a video on in dallas texas and you tell your friend in new york city. Well here's the here's how you access the video. I just put out there so it gets to the new york note by going through a whole bunch of intermediate servers. So it leaves. Shards are little pieces of the file all the way along the way on that pathway in more of those there are the more the faster is going to be. So it's is it easy or difficult to find content that historic on this system. Because ernie made it out. You could just pull up any web browser and pull up the ip version of it. Well there is a gateway. There's gateways on the profess of ecosystem so that which are basically web interfaces to the service so you can use a public gateway like i oh and and access any i hash through that mechanism that you mentioned autonomy as being one of the reasons for the price point of these devices. Yes can you elaborate for me. Well i'm not a marketer. So i just joined autonomy march in what is autonomy autonomy is is a marketing organization. That it's actually provides you the schooling to provide value to other people schooling that you didn't have i mean. We are not taught economics in school. We're not taught to provide value from what we can do ourselves. So this is a an an organization the not only teaches you marketing but also teaches you how to offer value that you have inherently as a human as well as what skills it's a skill development as well it's is very excellent organization. That's what's one of my things in life like if you can just have the mindset of trying to provide value. Yeah wherever you go. Whatever you do you will be successful in some. Yes so you got to have a positive attitude and a lot of people have a negative attitude because that's the way the world beats us down that way. We're not meant to be on time. We're not meant to be free. We wanna be they want us to be slaves and they want us to fit into a niche so autonomy breaks that they give you education. They give you. It's another thing. That's great about tommy is the whole circle. It's like this this. This campground is filled with freedom. Loving people well autonomy. is dave vet their their. They don't just let anybody join autonomy. They vet you so they've got to have the right attitude about freedom before they're going to allow you to be a student there so there's a great network that takes place with students autonomy that you know there's a lot of marketing expertise but there's a lot of technical expertise than you married them together in great things come from that synergy. That collaboration is their website. Autonomy dot work that. I find the right people I don't remember off the top of my head. Were saying really great things about the it would just be nice absolutely I'm gonna sit though otani at work. Then so they taught you the basics of marketing and teaching me that yes okay and did they suggest the thousand dollar price point or was that something that you i the prices and they said that's a good place to put it. I mean that's a good place to start. They said okay and the other device here all of these are part of giveaways right. Yes so how could someone. Actually you know. Sign up for the giveaway. What what's participate in contests these are. These are awards for the contests and they have to. They have to provide some form of value value. Being in how we're whether it'd be a mesh network they might develop whether it be a unique packaging. The might incorporate a keyboard and a screen in a portable device whether that be Just for example. Our lipmans example was having a access point in the ability to record and upload data after the fact in a portable manner so lots of lots of ways you can provide value to the contest. And so it's not like a raffle where they can just you know. Pay five dollars and enter the contest. They actually have to innovate and contribute something to the development of these machines. Exactly and where can people do that. I mean where can people learn more about that. I suppose a pirate box dot info very cool. Well thank you so much for joining us today. I hope successful and you know these are really cool things. I love the idea of having something like this now. Are they tied specifically to ip s. You've mentioned a large number of use cases. Right is there is some way the the average home user might have a need for not necessarily thousand dollar one. But what could the average home user utilize one of these boxes for their could use it as an auxiliary server. I mean we we we all all of us in. It can buy server space somewhere in the cloud rinus could be. This could be just an example of a server. It could be. You could take you anywhere. You wanna go okay. The average end user doesn't really need a server. I mean is there. You mentioned one of these true. They can use it for that purpose. There's lots of software available out of the can. You could probably installed within. Probably i'd say for an for an average is. They could probably spend a few hours just a few hours. Install cody on it and have tivo type of you know. Dvr application where they can download movies. And what have it's all nice user interface and very clean and everything that way and these boxes are all capable of that. Not all of them. They're all capable of that but they have different characteristics like this. This one here has an infrared sensor so you can use your remote control to change your channel on your cody box okay. Well that's really cool but see. I keep losing to the question. The question i mean to ask so this one can do that thing and it significantly cheaper so that that's marketed more towards the end user the consumer so to speak or marketing all of these toward people who require service. Actually i chose the different packages of the four prizes. This is the top prize. This one's a second. Is the first runner up there to others. The two others have different characteristics. The low end unit were marketing for two hundred dollars. A two hundred dollar value or assigning. It's just very. I mean it's the software that on top of a purchase Starter kit a raspberry pi starter. Kit comes with the case and couple of cables. You know just simple things that get you bring it up in. So that's like the low end of what we're offering a surprise. That's the third runner up their four prizes and total the value for all the prizes together. Twenty five hundred dollars so what we're saying so tell me about the fourth prize. The fourth is one. I just described as low end unit for two hundred dollars. What is it capable of. It's basically raspberry pi in a box. It's it can do everything that these others do as far as the core. Ip node in a portable box and the price. The third prize is Got a bigger st card in the packaging is a little bit different. It is a passively cooled a raspberry pi meaning. There's no fans it's quiet. It's solid black box harley any bigger than the raspberry pi itself you know about three inches by two inches by two inches by three inches. Roughly tiny it's boxes are really tidiness. Remarkable the amount of power. I mean you said this one has eight gigabytes around is impressive to think of a tiny little computer able to utilize that much power without overheating. Yet you've managed to passively koumas for for our listeners. Who can't see these things. None of these are larger than a sandwich. Yeah yeah that's a fair description and it's pirate box dot info dot. Nfo people want to join the contest. But you have to actually contribute something you can't just throw money at it or cryptocurrency or whatever you have to actually care about the ip f s ecosystem to develop on it and that that's a cool way to do a contest. I think so. Hopefully you're successful. Hopefully you have people out there innovating and creating the ecosystem that you want to be and you know. Welcome to fort fest again. I i hate that. I had to ask your name earlier. Because i see you year after year and i was like. Yeah that sounds about right though.

Doesn't mean we on americans as the onion news network talk long free talk live and feel like i have to say after that guy says i usually leave it to that guy. I don't know who that is. No it is free talk by though from fort fast. Two thousand and twenty one here at rogers campground and be beautiful yet. Slightly chilly and windy. Rogers campground today. And i don't know if you've noticed but facebook has decided that libertarians. We'll ask are you. Are you an extremist. It depends on who you ask right. Facebook has been telling me. I may have been exposed to people who are extremists. What we may in fact be generating extremist content as we speak. This is extreme. If you ask facebook i mean. They're being very vague right now. Those who aren't on facebook are using. Facebook is working with some organization that is just sending an absurd amount of notifications to what appear to be libertarians about being exposed to extremist content or about being concerned that one of their friends is becoming an extremist deliver a little more than a decade ago when it was all the marketing rage to market your product as extreme more than a decade was it I'm old so that was the extreme ninety s everything was bad. Yeah extreme snickers bar. No on sale right so facebook has started to warren some users. They might have seen extremist content. The company said on thursday. But they're they're not telling people what they consider to be extremists conduct. You know. I clicked stupid button to see i wanted to know. Are they going to specify which one of these eighty groups i'm in is generating extremist content. But of course they don't well. Extremist of course in the context of facebook seems to be a political or anti political anyway. So my non libertarian. Friends have talked about receiving the notice. As far as i can tell so. When i go facebook can i scroll through to see what's happening with friends i assist. They're all getting the notification of course the vast majority of them are libertarians. I haven't seen any non libertarians talking about extremists extremists control. That's what extremists screenshot shared on. Twitter showed a notice asking. Are you concerned that someone you know is becoming an extremist now. There's a difference here between extremist and violent extremists all of the notifications that i saw referred to violent extremism which of course excludes me for me considered an extremist. Because i'm not a violent person. I don't advocate the use of violence if if they include violent extremists part of their definition. Which from what i've seen they. They are yeah. I've seen a bunch of these notifications because everybody who gets one takes a screenshot of it and then reposted and says something about it or gets all their their facebook friends to comment on it and which is weird. Yeah and i'm trying to determine if the word a haven't looked at it today but the ones that i saw i don't know if they all had the word violent in it or if any of them did i use the word harmful. I according to this that they are learning that you may have been exposed to harmful extremist content recently who who determines what isn't isn't harmful harmful for who will right and like if it's really just something that's posted on a social media website or application. Then that's a speech issue and the only person who should determine whether anything that they've seen or read on these things is harmful or otherwise inappropriate for themselves is the individual certainly and i don't trust facebook at its sensors to be qualified to identify extremist content. Because they're not good at identifying things that actually violate their community standards their communities their they're automatic policing of things that violate community standard. Have absolutely no understanding of context. And even when you bring in a human to appeal a decision they still have no understanding understanding or consideration of context so by in large. A lot of these are probably people posting. Trolling memes and facebook doesn't know the difference between a troll as something actively promoting violence because facebook's kind of stupid algorithms do not detect humor or sarcasm. Now they don't. It's impossible for them to do. So and now those same algorithms for detecting what is or isn't extremist content. So they've they've been under pressure for a long time from lawmakers as civil right groups to combat extremism on his platforms including us domestic movements involved in the january six capital riot capital. They're calling it a riot now when groups supporting former president. Donald trump tried to stop the us. Congress from certifying is is that what they were doing. They were trying to stop congress from so i thought they were just being assis. Think they actually thought it was a cookout or something. I thought they were. Somebody brought a grill. They were gonna took some burgers. I don't think they knew what they were trying to accomplish. It was just some some raging screaming rednecks raging and screaming and the capital. It didn't seem like a riot direction. Or any of that nonsense to me. You know who i bet. Besides the united states government. You know who i bet really loves this. Facebook extremist algorithm thing that they've been launched there that they wanted upon china china's got love this thing right trying to even have facebook. I have no idea. i don't know either. But some shaking their head. So i got surprised. Everything's regulated in china or restricted. So facebook says this test is part of our larger work to assess ways to provide resources and support to people on facebook who may have engaged with or were exposed to extremist content or may know someone who is at risk now. I'm the kind of person who intentionally engages extremists right. Before i was legally not allowed to use telegram. I was in several not say telegram chat rooms just to argue with these people right and expose them to ideas that you know. They're not used to hearing especially on transportation. A lot of people love to throw that me as something that's me. I'm the kind of person what to engage these people. And that's why did she mo- versus nazi we. Christopher cantwell the extremists. And bring them back from the ledge. I don't want to seek to facebook police after them. That doesn't do anything to help anyone. We are partnering with ngos. Non governmental organizations we usually means a governmental organization and academic experts in this space and hope to have more to share in the future. Who gets to decide what content is extreme facebook. It said the efforts were part of its commitment to the christ church call to action. Whatever that is evidently say campaign involving major tech tech platforms to counter violent extremists online that was launched following a two thousand nineteen attack in new zealand. That was livestream on facebook. Facebook said in detest it was identifying both users who may have been exposed to rule breaking extremist content. I haven't been exposed to any such content breaking and users who had previously been the subject of facebook's enforcement at what previous enforcement. This is very vague. I don't know what they're talking about and it seems like just another ugly part of their attempts at censorship. yeah facebook seems to. They're working very hard to just destroy themselves right but they're constantly banning people they're constantly flagging. People is inappropriate. They're kicking people off the platform. I don't recall exactly who it was but someone an expert propagandist received a lifelong ban from facebook just a day or two ago wall and i'm currently been for facebook which is usual for me. I spent nine months out of the year. Probably just a bad from facebook is fine. I mean if it's there for me to use use it if it's not i won't to me. It's a tool just like any other except this tool occasionally just brakes will in. It's it's been nicknamed fascist book for quite some time and certainly as time goes on it is living up to that.

And what is the mastodon mastodon. Always forget the name of that one man and this is why gab took off people it's because of all these banning it just drives people to the underground and gab is like this right wing kind of platform we're attracted at least right wing fanatics is full of the outright.

There's probably still time if your local to new hampshire you to get up your if you're not already on your way up here but realistically there probably isn't so we'll probably have to catch you next year because episode isn't going to air until tonight and tomorrow is the saturday july third and july. The fourth is technically the last day of fork fast. But that's like the day where you put on all your stuff and you leave so realistically they have until tomorrow to get here so you probably missed out if you didn't get here already but with you. Today it's aria. The reverend captain kick ass here and chris and don't let a little bit of a twenty year war. Get in the way of your festivities this year. That's what joe biden is saying. Here is being grilled on some questions on the afghan that was grilled over charcoal or gas grill. Here's being grilled by the media by fox news. It was saying icy verbally grilled. Yes at least you know someone has. The war was never mentioned during the presidential debates. And that bothered me because there's no greater example of privilege then that your country can fight in a twenty year war and have a presidential election and none of the candidates talk about it. I mean. I've stopped watching the elections and all of the debates and all of that crap. Because i i just don't have time for that kind of uselessness but i've been told that war was not mentioned at all repeatedly and that is disappointing to me because you would think that there would be some sort of an outcry from we'll call them the citizens You know saying hey water about this war. That's still going well. It's easy for america's to get forget about the war right because these bombs aren't falling on american cities but the fourth of july fireworks that we're going to have here in the united states are very different from the fireworks. That joe biden. Just let syria quote enjoy. So he grew irked. Friday with repeated press questions about the afghan troop drawdown saying. He didn't want to answer any more on the topic because it was a holiday weekend. They're not gonna talk about bombing another country on a holiday. Yeah do you think i'm uncivilized. That is by far one of the most disgusting things i've ever heard from a sitting. Us president and i've heard some really disgusting things from these lunatics following remarks on positive june report jobs reports but it took multiple questions about the situation in afghanistan where the country faces a possible fall to the taliban as us forces are withdrawn. Now this is the us government. The us military has had twenty years to do something about the taliban and arm them. Yes and they have not been successful after receiving questions on the nation's security issues which are all time wind binu said he wanted to talk about quote. Happy things it just. Wow that's absolutely. I'm not going to answer anymore. Look it's the fourth of july actually tried to get the audio of him saying this but it turned out to be too complicated to worry with. I'm concerned that you guys are asking me questions that i'll answer next week. Who cares if this war goes on needlessly for another week right but this is a holiday weekend. I'm going to celebrate it. There's great things happening. He then read off a bunch of economic data. He sought to head off further pressing on one of the chief foreign policy decisions of his presidency. I'll answer all of your negative questions not negative your legitimate questions. The last us troops are soon set to leave bog airfield near kabul afghanistan leaving the afghan military to contend with the taliban putz. Is that is that. True is or the lashed. Us troops actually going to leave. Afghanistan already left once before like they've never had a full withdrawal of all u s than when they do leave it's traditional for them to be replaced with private mercenaries that are contractors to the us government. So do they ever really leave. What they certainly haven't left iraq either which is an eighteen year war and i it just seems like the us military if they wanted to they should be able to defeat the taliban and the saddam hussein regime or whatever the hell it is that they went to afghanistan and iraq. For but aria they can't even you know defeat extremists in the us. He was despite the vague threat of attempting to or something. What was that all about. I don't know because i you know. I was here at the festival when all of that happened. But as i understand it he says something like you need to take out. The i've i've heard libertarians characterizing. It as you know he was. He threatened to nuke american citizens. Yeah i haven't heard those quo. It's interesting to me because if he thinks that A bunch of air fifteen's are no match for the us government then. It shouldn't matter whether or not anybody owns one anymore right. What their issue they don't. They never painted the reason to get rid of. Ar fifteen has being you know because they're useful against the government or anything like that. There isn't it's always. Oh it's it's mass shootings right so they always remind the mass bombings. Yeah i was thinking that they were gonna bomb. Rogers campground when somebody said that unlikely. What well that. That would be a bit extreme. I can't imagine even the. Us government is ready to do something like that. Everybody was about dropping nukes on americans wasn't specifically talking about that was inferred. Oh yes i can tell. It's also i didn't hear. I sparked unprecedented for somebody in the organization of government to bomb somewhere in the us. If if you remember the move bombings happened on. Us soil in philadelphia. I vaguely remote here to us. And then and then of course you know. Everybody remembers waco. If you don't go look up. Waco w aco. What's what's the documentary. Not documentary the drama drama. What do you call. Drama is that that's on netflix. It was pretty good and it painted. I felt it painted the atf at in the rightful evil light that they should have been painted. A lot of people feel like it was more fair and balanced. It wasn't hard enough on the kind of showed them murdering people on purpose children. That's pretty bad. One of the number one things that organization type government is good at as murdering. It's almost the only thing that any state is actually good at. What they specialize like stealing to they. Do they're really good at that. They are good at stealing but they're only good at stealing because they have to be because that's how they for their vital they kind of have to murder people in order for the threat when they steal to have some teeth right. They feel like if if they are murdering anybody and then they threaten somebody to steal their money. Well they might just ignore them and not give them the money but if they murder people then they're like you know we've murdered people so you should give us money. Yeah every single law that is put forward by the american government. People need to remember is ultimately backed by the threat that they will murder you if in order to enforce it even if his selling cigarettes on the streets of new york they will kill you. In order to enforce whatever law they passed. Yeah possibly in your sleep to even say. Wake you up at six. Am in the morning and shoot or they. You know doa flashbang in the crib with your baby or something like that. Which they've certainly donner. Just you know. Shoot the wrong people in the wrong apartment. Because they don't know where there are because they're high on crack or whatever so going back to the the biden thing in his remarks about. I don't want to talk about that on a holiday like the fourth of july holiday. The whole reason for fireworks is to mimic the bombs bursting in air right right so if you're not going to talk about bombing a holiday inn which bombing is pseudo represented by you know. We'll call them artificial bonds fireworks display in a pseudo fireworks. And what day are you going to talk about it excellent question. He wasn't done being exasperated with the press on friday laughing derisively at a question about whether he was confident. Congress would pass his agenda. Come on guys. He said look folks. This is a process. I love you guys. But it's a process come on. It's always a process. I mean you're the president you can simply withdraw the troops. If you wanted to more coming up this is free. Talk live. We have some good news. The indictments against also bricked in the district of maryland were dismissed with prejudice meaning. They can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that ross engaged in murder-for-hire this was a serious allegation at rolls. Outbreak denies it was never prosecuted or ruled on by a jury but was trumpeted by the federal government. And the media. As if it were proven fact. The maryland court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning. Ross's case and leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained in ross's appeal to the supreme court the fact that the judge used these allegations to give her all say coney sentence of double life without parole violated his sixth amendment. Right to a jury. Trial judges are required to issue sentences based on convictions. Decided by a jury not unproven. Allegations never even charged at trial.

It's it's comfortable. We tell you to bring a hoodie when you come to rogers campground. Yes even though you know. It's july right and it's summertime. It still new hampshire and these are the mountains of new hampshire. Yes northern new hampshire mallon's they can get cold in the summertime. I held out for the first half of the show. I finally put a hoodie on. Yeah i'm amazed you got that far men i've been over here like on and off for the last hour or so. It has been pretty nice out for the past two weeks though. So i mean it's still nice out today. It's just raining gear. So i've seen where at a festival and unlike joe biden and we're not just having a holiday and pretending like negative things aren't happening because negative things are continuing to happening. And you know we're not the president of the united states but who by the way also doubled the amount of money being poured into hiring for law enforcement dating. I'm i'm not surprised. i mean they. They painted as police reform stuff like that but ultimately it just hires more police officers. That's exactly what happened. So all you left. He's out there who are all about defunding the police. Well guess what. You're getting more police now. More of them. The chinese abuse of the weaker muslim population is ongoing. Of course and this is one of the reasons i stopped using wish dot com. Because you have no way of knowing what province something is coming from until after it's arrived and the first time that i got something from the xinjiang province which is weird. These abuses are happening. Slave labor torture forced organ removal organ. Harvesting is like like harvesting is happening in twenty twenty one in china right now. The first time. I got set there for the province i was like. Oh yeah i can never use again. I'm not supporting this and let me be clear. When i say organ harvesting. I mean involuntary organ. Harvesting people are being taken into facilities. They're they're being cut open and their organs are being taken from them without their permission. Oftentimes resulting in death a human rights group that gained popularity on youtube. Largely because of his videos exposing china's human rights abuses against the weaker. Muslims had several of its videos removed from the platform with youtube citing unrelated policy violations. According to report well yes. Youtube is not the hub of free speech that you know it was what made it so popular and successful in the first place since google bought it. It's just been a piece of crap. Reuters reported that the youtube channel or reuters I'm not gonna try pronounce this other word either. Some some channel based in kazakhstan also had his channel temporarily blocked by youtube. The activists who runs the channel. Whose name i'm also not going to attempt to pronounce has been called known rights activists but according to reuters twelve of his videos were removed this year by youtube amid parent campaign by groups who deny china is committing genocide to mass report. The video so they they got troll farm. That's mass reporting his videos because they want to pretend like this isn't happening because the chinese government wants to pretend like this happening. Youtube eventually removed the block on the channel but has not reinstated all the videos that took down citing policies that van personal information in its video that could result in harassment right. I think if this is the article. I think i've read this and i think it's that there's somebody who holds up like a driver's license or something like that in one of the videos and that's their problem apparently. Yeah that's exactly what it is. Those testifying about chinese human rights abuses show government issues. Id government issued id's which the platform bands due to the possibility. The personal information could lead to harassment. Well it could lead to their harassment by chinese government presumably. I'm assuming these people who hold up their id's doing so voluntarily in an effort to say. Hey here's who i am. I'm telling you the truth. I am a legitimate person. I'm not a hired gun. I'm not paid actor. I'm not a you know a panzi of you know any of these governments. I'm a regular dude. Here's my right. I assume they're doing this voluntarily. Yeah it as a way of showing their credentials. Like hey i am. I've actually seen this. I've witnessed this is actually happening. But the human rights group on youtube maintains that those ideas are critical to credibility to prove that the people in the videos are in fact related to individual subject to chinese government abuse. These are family members. Oh my gosh. The people giving the testimonies are talking about their loved ones. And that you know. That's that's scary because the pressure. I mean that that's what the chinese government does. Hey your uncle said this thing. So we're going to enter the entire family right. It sounds a lot like the mafia and drug drug cartels in mexico where they basically the same thing they'll torture family members connect murder family members in order to get you to do what they want. Absolutely i mean. It's how things like the lord's resistance army recruits people are like. Hey you're going to join our military or we're going to kill your family and the twelve year old says okay. We'll join your army then. The chinese communist party marked its one hundredth anniversary on thursday with fanfare and propaganda. Because that's how they do everything. The anniversary of the party that controls china's authoritarian regime was met with derision by many across the world members of both the us senate and house of representative introduced resolutions. Condemning the party for one hundred years of human rights abuses and as much as i hate donald trump. One of the only things he did that was correct was declared the weaker genocide be genocide. Yes yeah i would go even further say it's a legitimate holocaust for whatever that distinction is worth. It certainly isn't right. it's in. Humanitarian is what it is green humane at a minimum. But i don't know how to do anything about it. Beyond just not buying stuff that i know was manufactured and produced in china. Because even if everyone boycotted these shang province we are dealing with the chinese regime here and they would just say it came from another province so you of just have to blockade the country as a whole but so much of the stuff we use. This americans is china that how. How do you actually escape that. It's almost impossible and you're right. There is a lack of things that people can do other than help. Spread the word that this is happening. This is you know a holocaust. This is a genocide. These are people who are being persecuted for their beliefs and for the type of people that they are being forced into slave labor. There be. they're being tortured. Their organs are being harvested. They're being brainwashed. they're being force fed things that violate their religion. They're being forced to pray to the chinese government essentially. And it's ongoing. It's happening right now. In china india xinjiang province. If you're a listeners out there if you're big on freedom of religion you know this is something that you should not only be aware of but helping other people to understand. Youtube did not address questions about whether the chinese government contacted regarding the videos whether it is concerned about abuse of its reporting feature to silence human rights groups or whether it agrees with secretary of state. Anthony blinken that. China is commuting committing genocide so our current secretary of state has also served the one pointed appointed by biden presumably also recognizes it as genocide. The group is moving videos to a new platform called odyssey which were aware of here on free talk live. It's the library in light of youtube actions against it. Is it library it is. It's the same. It's the front end for library effectively for the web. Okay i i've never been to clear on what it was because we're not like You know how like What's the cable company. I'm thinking of comcast. yeah they. They're also verizon are they are not verizon spectrum no no comcast is Xfinity other brand right so it's the same company right but it's just a rebranding for whatever reason i don't know i. It seems to be what what library did with odyssey is. It's a rebranding to. It's sort of relaunch it. I think it's a little different than that So as i understand it. You library is an app effectively or access through an app. But if you don't want to exit through the app you can access it through a web portal basically so the web hall honestly also supports live streaming put library did not right so there's another distinction. Yeah but You know. I'm glad to hear that this person you know youtube came after them and took their videos down this okay. We'll go somewhere where i can't be taken down. Freetalklive has done the same thing here and the more that this happens. The more people are just going to go to these. Decentralized alternatives already exist things like library odyssey. We've been talking about the interplanetary file system things like that there's matrix servers and mastodon servers are places to share your content. We're big tech can't take it off decentralize all the things. We're coming up from fort fest. Two thousand and twenty one. This is free talk live. Why did you move to the shire. I moved here to the shire. Because there's other people around who take liberty just as seriously as i do. I moved to the shire. Because i saw videos of people challenging authority and thought that i could get support myself. It called to me like do this right now. I wanted to be around people like me. Who got it and once i got here i knew there was nowhere else i wanted to be. I've always wanted to change the world. So i moved to the shire to join people who were actually working towards doing the same thing. The people here are awesome loving and positive it was for the adventure and for the feeling of something important is happening here and i just wanted to come to sort of be part of that.

If you're wondering why we're not doing interviews and stuff like that is because i mean it's kind of a cold rainy day there. There's no one walking around at the moment. I don't blame them yeah. Folks are inside of their. Rv's tents you know that type of thing at lisa smart ones. Some folks are probably gone into town to get lunch or whatever. It's kind of the afternoon here for us. So it's a good day to do that. Yeah this is not a sit around and hang out day. Really is a bit chilly. So we're pulling up stuff to talk about in chris. You brought up a story. I've already forgotten what it was about but it sounded fascinating. Oh it's about domain seizures in iran. It is well it's not in iran. It's us seizing domain. Names of iranian media outlets. Oh so these are not dot are websites right. I you know this is a good question. And i don't know the answer to that is i haven't actually read this story yet but i'm sure once we get into it we'll find that out. Let's get into it. Yeah so this is coming from antiwar dot com. So let's see here operating a website with a us-based domain name. So that's answer. Your question has starts with is starting to see a little less secure tuesday with the news that the justice department s multiple iran linked media websites. Us domains see. I didn't know that that was a thing. I bought a dot. Us website. i don't remember. Now what what the hell it was. These are actually dot com domain names and those are those are controlled by the united states. Government carpet yeah. I know that dot. Us also subsidizes. Some of the money goes to the us government or something like that and at the time. So you don't buy dot. Us what the hell domain did. I buy into it with dot. Us that made sense that. I'll have to check that question. I bought a lot of domains throughout the last year. I'm trying to figure out. Why the hell did i buy dot. Us in the first place. I was able to the last. One i got was lord kick ass dot com and it redirects to my Site for my parody music. Nice so. I intend to do something more that i'd like it to be more of a landing page for all things captain kick ass but i'll get around to it eventually. Tell us more chris yet. So among those seas were press. Tv dot com alum Mtv dot net. And i'll mess. I mean we don't really need to know to us. They appear to be like Iranian radian or something similar type names Details are scant as just department has neither confirmed the seizures nor made any effort to explain them. The notice suggested it was done under the laws that allow forfeiture of property involved in trafficking nuclear technology or materials. That's that's not a good excuse. Of course as well these news sites cover details of the jcp a and it's negotiations. That's not the same thing. As trafficking by any stretch of imagination seasoning a media l. Several should be caused a major issue in the us and lacked. The lack of explanation is troubling. Yeah and the government generally don't explain the but For those curious. I just looked at the dot. Us website that i bought was bad. Movie club dot us for before the fbi. Took all the stuff that i was using to do. Bad movie club. I had a youtube channel where we watched stupid movies. Yeah and this is always a dangerous is always a scary thing. And it's it's it's. This is something i've talked about. More specifically it tends to be with corporations effectively doing it and getting domain seizures with piracy types of cases. But if you can do it with piracy cases what stops them from doing it from the new york times or you know free keen or you know free talk live or any of these other media outlets that may be critical of the us government right presumably you know. With the case against crypto six. We may wake up one day and find you know. The crypto six dot com has been seized by the justice department or reform satanic church dot com has been seized or freetalklive dot com. Yeah that's scary. It is and it's not that unrealistic. We've easing domain names for all sorts of different websites and and it's interesting because even some sites that domain names have been seized. it it they they. There's not a conviction the domain get seized. And then they ha- theoretically have a court date but it's five years in the future and yeah they might get their domain name back in that time period. They've lost the ability to fundraise. They've lost the ability to communicate that they're you know under attack by the government right all the more reason for people to look into things like library and odyssey and yeah interplanetary afoul system there is There's a there's one in particular that i think is very disturbing tv. Add ons which was basically a add-on repository open source free software kind of thing where it was just basically apps that were hosted. It was an app store effectively for patients. Yeah for cody boxes. And cody isn't illegal in of itself even entertainment and industry cody. Because that's not the first time it's mentioned on this is basically a. I don't know how to explain it. Exactly it's an entertaining. It's basically the play movies and tv shows music and things like that but it's it's a media it's immediate it's in media. It's a movie player. I don't really know you can connect it with different plug ins to connect to youtube. You can connect you netflix's you can connect to any kind of streaming portal. It's kinda organizers for you okay. So it's like a roku i guess. Yeah it's like a roku my understanding is that it allows you to stream from places that are unofficial as well so in addition to all the officials who amazon all that stuff like unofficial like some of these Maybe not torrent sites specifically sites that have content that may be overseas and possibly in violation of copyright. And that type of thing. The the app itself doesn't do that. It's the plug ins that are available. Were in some cases some but the thing is they're not necessarily like the politics aren't necessarily illegal either it just sort of a grey area and a lot of cases and so they've basically tried to seize the host her okay the company hosting those add ons and the domain name which is even more scary over accusations that there's a link to the links there's a link to a link to a link to some sort of copyright infringement or copyright violation it's not even like copyright infringement because the apps themselves don't actually provide like the copyright infringing material it's it's downloading it from a source it's like say it's like utah doesn't actually provide people with any sort of copyrighted correct. It can be used engaged shirt like you can have an app that can actually youtube and yes that apple then help enable you to access content on youtube but that doesn't mean. The app is engaged in piracy even though there are some there's some content on youtube right like it's absolutely the app or the especially the company hosting that app. And that's expectedly what they've done in the not only have they on after the servers. They've also stolen the domain name and this is all done through corporations but the government is enabling that so the government is the reason. That's even possible. So that's why it's a very scary thing. Well we saw the same thing with gab. Basically getting deep platform d- It was at the. Us government got rid of gab. Amazon that he platform. I think they ultimately did find another web host. But yeah those privately done though so it doesn't bother me so much when they're using government to to very little about amazon is truly private these days. I mean i think corporations in the us. You don't really get to that point without working with the us government here the argument but there is certainly not a manal. Amazon does not have a monopoly on hosting no certainly not so but they do have a lot of money and they do work closely with government. They're scary force to be reckoned with but certainly not concerned that if amazon kicks me i won't even use amazon trusting anything. If either of these things. Like yeah i see. They're a threat. I don't think they're a threat and hosting being one of the big cloud providers for sure there was an issue with their cloud service recently. I don't recall exactly what it was do. You do you know what i'm talking about. There's been issues. I think over the and what went down for a certain period of time which they were in clear text or some nonsense like that. Some list of user a lot of information got leaked because it wasn't encrypted or secure. I don't recall exactly the details. I guess it doesn't matter. I think i heard of it. But i don't recall the details either so so. Let's get back to the story about the iranian news outlets that have been seized by the us government as a as a prelude to the war that united states government wants to wage against the iranian government. Yep so there's Apparently the nuclear program is only one Theory as the associated press reported it was just general bands for disinformation and. Cbs suggested it was specifically reporting related to us elections. Their misinformation is not illegal right. That's the thing and it shouldn't be and who cover minus any false that you want. And it's not a law violation. It's not illegal to be wrong. Yeah there's not illegal to intentionally say something that isn't true no no. There's liable and stuff like that but that doesn't apply here. Well that you would go after you would. You might go after somebody for that. But that doesn't mean you get to see their domain absolutely. Yeah there is no confirmation. Though the us state department refused comment telling reporters to ask the justice department so far it does not appear that justice department has offered a statement. Press tv an alum. Tv are both state media outlets are run by a slavic republic of iran broadcasting in english and. Arabic are just kind of interesting. Because i bet you these outlets are also on cable television. And i wonder if they've gone after the cable television stations as well. Good question time motel. I guess we can get further into it more coming up from port fast. This free talk live instinct.

Live here at rogers campground and you may still be able to join us. If you're in new hampshire. We're gonna be here until july the fourth realistically july. The third is the last party but it's been a great year. We'll be here again next year. Assuming some of us aren't in prison and not really related to that. But one of the things that i've been talking about for the last several years this how eventually financial institutions like banks are going to open up crypto wallets for their customers. So you open your bank of america app or wells fargo app or whatever. They have a specific little place there. Where they'll hold your crypto currency for you. The first time. I realized that that was going to happen. At some point in our lives was when one of the corporate bank accounts that i used to have gotten rid of all my only credit unions now but i used to have one and they implemented right within the portal. That you log into the website your account reecey all your information. They implemented a payday loan the equivalent of the money tree. That kind of thing but right there in your bank account right so you could borrow up to five hundred bucks for like two hundred and thirty percent interest for a short period of time. Until you're you're next direct deposit hit or whatever they continue to be as exploitation as these absolutely check advantage. That's frustrating so tell us what banks are doing now. Well this from bitcoin. dot com ten thousand financial institutions. Can now let customers buy sell and hold bitcoin through their bank accounts. Ten thousand th. Would anybody wanna do that. Well the average person wants to get into crypto currency but they're terrified of it will trust their banks. There was a writer. Trust my bank at all average. I don't think he's publisher. Kelly but there was a writer here in town and he did some interviews of some people and when some other. I wasn't there for this but some other people told me that they were talking to him about the wallet and krypton like dude. I'll just send you something. know all. Get some crypto from an authorized exchange. Right you know. He just one of the reporters that came up here to talk to me. And yes okay. That's he didn't feel comfortable. Taking crypto currency in peer to peer fashion. Even though he had to have somebody who's just going to give him like five bucks or whatever so he could you know do some tests transaction. Then he's like oh no no. I don't wanna do that. You know so funny to. It's weird because like i you know a lot of folks will only go through the quote unquote channels to do any of this kind of stuff. I mean in his defense. He was interviewing people who just got arrested by the fbi for using crypto. Yeah but there's cryptocurrency still not a crime. No it's not right and it's not like a regular list doing a story on people who were arrested related to crypto currency. I i can see why being such a journalist one would hesitate to get involved in crypto currency from the actual community members around those people who were arrested. My my hope is that journalist. Aren't that chicken. Well maybe they are. Maybe there are. I don't know if this was the same guy who was here. But they're one of the journalists from the places that have been interviewing us did come up here for the porcupine freedom festival for a few days and he actually only brought like five dollars in cash with him and he was expecting to just go around swiping his debit card everywhere. I mean there were places here where you could use a debit card. But it's rare and right he. He actually felt a little embarrassed to be pulling out plastic at a place where gold was circulating and almost everyone here took cryptocurrency right. Yeah i can see why that would be a little with a knife right right like i didn't enjoy pulling out. Usd to make purchases. But what choice did i have. Cold becks spit plenty of gold with gold. Backs is if you want to buy something for ten dollars. It's like okay. And i going to short myself half so called back. I when i when i now. We're spending old bags. People were just giving me change you know in. Us dollars. and i mean it was not optimal but it was better than the way i if if i if i'm spending gold back and i want change that change should come to me and go back form except the smallest bill is like four bucks so if you bought something for three i just call. Yeah i'm just going to lose the other dollar. I'm not gonna split hairs with them. Were demand change in a currency that. I'm not using inc really. I wasn't so much demanding. It they were just doing it. I wouldn't even accept it. I mean if the price is go back then the price is one gold back not won gold back minus one. Usd right at least. That's the way i view it back. So they're bracing dollars so right. So i was just gonna have their own flavor of how they do things i mean for me. I would if it was a three dollar item. I just give them a one goal back. And that's about four bucks and keep it for a tip and thanks for taking gold backs right now at this point in space and time we went to link house a pizza which is accepting backs my total was like. I don't remember exactly what it was. But it was inbetween gold backs. What do you want eight quarterbacks or seven gold back and they ultimately just want to seven which means you're short in themselves two dollars or whatever went i. I was going to give the mate. Yeah right just overpay. A little bit doesn't matter to me. Yeah so this is From bitcoin dot com thing serve inc a global leader in payments and financial technology announced wednesday that banks and credit unions of all sizes can facilitate buying selling and holding bitcoin within their digital banking platforms. Now who is this. Organization fin the serve inc. So it's a business banking business. Okay so fincen. Or what are these other radio regular. Sounds like one of those. But it's fins serve inc. They're listed on the nasdaq as f-. Isv so there. A publicly traded company. Apparently yeah that doesn't sound like government. They're a global leader in payments financial technology. So they're a tech group a banking specialist. They probably write a bunch of software for banks is probably what they do. That's what it sounds like to enable. The bitcoin thin serve has integrated with new york digital investment group a bitcoin technology and financial services subsidiary Finn serve has nearly ten thousand financial clients almost six million merchant locations globally in one hundred million digital banking users That its website details. A member of the s. and p. five hundred index and the fortune five hundred company claims to facilitate more than twelve thousand financial tracks transactions per second. The inc is. They're you know they're doing a lot of stuff. Basically yeah sounds like the announcement explains that the integration will allow consumers to manage. Bitcoin transactions directly within their financial institutions online and mobile banking portals providing users and easy way to buy sell and hold the popular digital asset through their trusted financial institutions. Say they're they're. They're going to allow people to open like their wells fargo app or whatever and by crypto currency direct. Yeah so them so. Imagine a a wallet. App now is just integrated with your bank app. Yeah i don't want that. Well it's going to happen. Apparently the girl this article crypto currency anyway. But if i was going to have a cryptocurrency wallet i would use one that was independent of any of these evil. Horrific mentioned it just says providing users an easy way to buy sell and hold the popular digital asset. So it hasn't mentioned anything about spending yet so i don't know if this is just like a savings account this is something like pay pal. Does where like you you know if you have five hundred bucks in your savings account. You can allocate arm. I'll put to fifty into bitcoin. I'll put another fifty into or whatever it is right. I would be more like uphold or something like that where you know you just swipe your debit card and polls got it way more correct but the banking institutions exist already and now they're trying to fight for their own market. I mean there's no because it's like these are the people who are stealing money from you effectively by like hiding. They've all sorts of hidden. Fees like a monthly fee. And then and then try to put deposit cash enough of it. Anyway they'll charge you a percentage of the cash and like or if you go under a little bit like you'll they'll they'll charge you some insane in iraq those fees every time and it just it just it never. It's never ends with these banks. Well they make the vast majority of their money. As i understand it on overdraft fees and things like that because see average america's not very good with money living paycheck to paycheck and they overdraft a lot and those fees. It's like thirty five dollars an overdraft something like that. So if you go fifty cents over your banks hitting you with like a thirty dollar charge your charge too so even if it goes over just a little bit and the crazy thing is often those overdraft fees are the result not of you making an error but the result of fraud on your account and then you get charged.

There's plenty of places you can find my name at like free. Talk live dot com or whatever you probably already know whether youtube channel is anyway just like the i mean the whole presentation. I'm not really happy. With because i'm not the type to just stand there talking at people and that's what presentation is you know i'd rather interact with people. Say i thought you rather yell at people when you ain't you talking about the presentation from from professor. Yeah yelling at the police for the first minute telling people to watch the first minute right after that i it was just kind of a doll in my opinion before we open it up to qna where he got interested in game. Because the kind of way. I like to do things but You can find out more about that. At the crypto six dot com. If you haven't already been there. Steve crypto six dot com. We're talking about crypto currency and the fact that banks now have the infrastructure. Thanks to this company. That does the back end. Banking stuff to support crypto currency in banking apps and on mobile banking site. Which is something that i always knew it was coming. And it's literally a software integration right all these banks already have software that processes all their banking transactions and so they've got a bunch of developers who put together a plug in if you will integration on how to four cryptocurrency specifically but again it hasn't said anything about spending it so i'm curious in the way this article is written two is Well this is the last year because if you have your cryptocurrency in your bank and you try to go make a purchase with it or whatever assuming they allow you to make a purchase with it. You're back through jumping through all of those insane. Hoops that banks are already making people jump through just in order to spend your money but the last place you should ever trust with your money is a bang agreed. Yes you'd be better to take a mayo jar and buried a backyard or if you wanted to stay in usd you'd be even better to take your us and turn it into gold or crypto currency or silver anything else. It isn't just constantly. Losing value agreed the surgical continues losing value. Incidentally because of the banks and the fact that they're constantly inflating the money supply by loaning out money to people that doesn't actually exist and others no limit no reserve requirement anymore And even though there was a what was the ten percents right ten to one something kind of a reserve requirement. Like that wasn't really doing anything now. For those who don't know that mitt. If bank had one hundred thousand dollars on their books they could loan out one million dollars even though they only had one hundred thousand dollars on their books and is is that sort of activity that caused the bank runs and stuff like that. Remember that we remember from films. It's a wonderful life and won't even two thousand and eight to the for that matter right. Had to play in it. Where were there runs on banks. Two thousand they were runs on banks but there were many many loans given out to will say Otherwise unqualified people absolutely and they just printed all that money of course and of course. Those unqualified people couldn't pay that money back. The next thing you know. People's houses are being foreclosed on and it was all predicted by austrian economics. Absolutely animists long. Before it actually happened. I mean people who pay attention and watch these things. Study it as addictive as you can in a software like hey this is about to get really bad and what. I love about austrian economics. To is that it is simple to understand. It is the average person gets it. It's supply and demand that's really all it is supply and demand that's ostra economics in a nutshell. I'm over simplifying of course but really if you can understand supply and demand. Then you understand austrian economics everything else. the all. Everybody thinks that understanding finance in today's world is really difficult and only super smart people like no just read some austrian economics books illusion that the government and its institutions have created an order to keep keep us confused. They pointed things. Like m one m two and all of this other nonsense when really they don't even have the correct definition of inflation that they're using. I read an article from fox news yesterday about how someone end. The federal reserve was like. Oh yes we expect inflation to. We expect prices to increase by twenty percent or whatever but that's not inflation. Inflation is an increase in the money supply. A price increase is a price increase. This is going to be a result of inflation. Not inflation and increase in price is not inflation but they they don't they don't increase in price can be the result of inflation but it none of it self is not inflation. No inflation is an increase in the money supply but if they use that definition and then they have to admit that. Oh yeah we call us this is we're the ones who related the money supply some stead. They escaped it and point to an increase in prices. Somehow something they can't control when it is just stop inflating. The currency and prices won't increase as a result of your inflation of that currency and these are the people that the average person is going to turn to to hold their crypto currency for them because they're too reckless too dangerous to hold their own private keys. Well in this article continues on with a quote from the chief digital data officer at finn serve. The company has developed this Plugging if you will for for the banks to use says people continued to turn to financial institutions as a central place to manage their financial activity at being able to offer the capability of crypto currency will help position banks and credit unions at the forefront of their customers financial lives. Now i we don't want involved in crept it's as people continue to turn financial institutions. Stop it people. You're a person you're listening to me. Stop turning to banks for your financial in the start taking responsibility for your own financial future even your financial present right because this stuff was not created for banks to manage for you. It was created to be peer to peer transactions. That cut out the middleman captain. How how would. I go about taking control of my finances as you're as you're describing crack whip what. How would you can control of your finances. I mean the first step that most people in my opinion. I'm not a financial expert here and this isn't legal advice but the first step is to get some cryptocurrency. Okay and how would i go about doing that. You can either transact in person you can find A bitcoin meet up a cryptocurrency. Meet up transact in person. I'm talking about step zero zero. Install the edge wallet. Well yeah obviously download download a wallet edge while it is my preferred while it. Of course i use it very frequently here in new hampshire But yeah you do need somewhere to keep. If you will your information you can also get a hardware wallet if you feel that. An offline storage is more secure for you But yeah step one while step to go ahead and trade for or better yet. Some crypto You know those are the two things and then tell all your friends about it and about what you're doing and how you've done it. If you have a business particularly a small business it is super easy for you to begin accepting cryptocurrency at your small business. If you're like an independent how hairdresser salon or something like that. Will you can just do it with the wallet. Okay if i please you can also pay them. In crypto currency they have to install a while there are applications that exist in the world for businesses. that will integrate with even systems. And so if you're a business you can go that way as well like any pay or bet pays something on those jeff. Merkley moving up from forecast. This is free talk by car.

There's all sorts of stuff going on here. of course. free talk. Live is also a popular daytime. Hang out spot but there's something going on later. You're taking part in chris that i've just now about because i'm probably the only person here not on telegram but i'm not on telegram at the moment so i'm not paying attention any any of these chest but you're doing some sort of textile some sort of tiktok and All day is talk about a non an anonymous types of things and tour and maybe cubes some of these some of these tech solutions. And have you ever looked into. Wind scribe have not. They're probably one of my favorites. It's like thirty six dollars a year. They accept crypto currency and a lot of them do a lot of these unsure proton does too they. They do have a facebook page but the only thing it says on their facebook pages. Hey if you're viewing this then you don't take privacy seriously enough so i like them. They seem to me to be really solid and reliable and for thirty six dollars a year. It's a no brainer. I actually had not used them in several months for obvious reasons and that's pretty cheap. I'm not doing anything that requires me to use a vpn torrington whatever. So just. i mean it's paid for it throughout the next year. So yeah there's an awesome service. Yeah there's there's definitely some some vpn writers. I'm a big fan of. Vpn is is probably the biggest one that i'm a fan of they. Have they support. Something called the liar guard. And it's sort of the next generation of opiyo. Vpn open vpn msa Is that the same wired. That was the internet security company So it's been around for a while now. Wire guard is basically the next generation of vpn technology. It's faster it's you know. It's better every which way i don't know it so so cool. What time is that happening. I believe that's happening at four o'clock where as soon as we're done with freetalklive actually okay very cool so we're talking about cryptocurrency and banks and you know the reasons that banks are unfit to exist. Because they're taking part in the destruction of the usd. There's one thing that i will say about banks. At least beginning to adopt crypto currency that could possibly result in a net positive and that is at some point these institutions are going to realize that the dollar is not where it's at and so if this can somehow turn into banks becoming you know wallet providers you know You know transitioning their services away from the usda as the usd continues to be over inflated and continues to lose more and more value every day as it's done since i've been alive You know it just terrifies me to think of like a sixty year old grandmother. Whatever going to her thankfully. I wanna buy some bitcoin going to but it's going to happen. The fact that market demand exists for banks to provide cryptocurrency. Wallace is kind of counter to the entire point of crypto currency. Which is that. You should control your money. Not the banks not the. Us government agreed adoption. Is you know going to be finicky thing. And we're going to see a. We're gonna see more weird stuff than this. I mean this is kind of weird and we can talk about it but we all knew this was coming right. We can talk about all the weird scenarios that this creates with you. Even interacting with other crypto currency exchanges or wallets and that type of thing Through your bank and it's going to create some very weird things that occur to consumers and will they allow you to send your crypto currency. It says it will allow you to sell will allow you to send your crypto currency to an unregistered unlicensed private bitcoin and public key this we don't know i don't think they're going to be like yeah. We need to know more about this. Bitcoin suggests that you're trying to send money to yeah. It's interesting because i as i understand. I believe there are some there. Are some providers. Allow you to do that. Currently this this are among those but right most of them. I imagine that's the one i was thinking particularly but yeah most of them i imagine are going to take like the pay pal approach. Which is you can't even prove that. It's actually bitcoin in the first place it'll be interesting I suspect that that's not going to stay that way for a long. It's just the start and thinking about this way. I mean eventually you know people are going to get wise and eventually you know it's going to just below say that but do you have any idea how stupid the average person is yeah. Trust bank took forty years for credit cards to get off the ground. I honestly i think it's just the time thing we we're gonna win in the end it's just gonna you know firstly fight us they. They don't win. You know obviously and and it just it takes off from there well there. They're a bit behind. I mean they really just started fighting us. And i mean they're. They're picking up steam to do that right now. You have the guy from france that we talked about the other day saying. Hey look europe has like one or two years. Tops to regular crypto currency before it makes our fiat obsolete. So i mean they. They know the government so they're extremely slow to react but let's not. Let's not pretend like you know. It's a unanimous victory here when we haven't won when us are. Are you know facing federal indictment. Thanks are trying to do themselves now. But i think end we will. And it's it's because it's because people are fighting back you know she remember okay bank does. It's not okay. When you do it. I am it. Anything more to the point So in addition to neighbouring banks to allow their customers by selling hold bitcoin within their bank accounts fin serve and nyg are working toward implementing additional functionality including the ability for banks to implement bitcoin based rewards programs the announcement notes. So tell you that that would. That would turn me around on banks that they were like. Hey if you put this amount of into your savings account. We'll give you this amount of bitcoin instead of getting a toaster. You get some bitcoin when you open an account okay. Let me open several. That would be. How many accounts can i open. Reminds me of how paypal started off. That used to give away five or exactly. What this reminds me of is the pay pal a bitcoin will call it integration right. I think the banks saw what pay pell is doing and saw and they were like. Oh we get on this train and so now. They're trying to hurry up and catch up to even pay pal much when they could just go ahead and like hire some wallet. People have a fully functional wallet integrated with their banking system. I don't understand why they're doing these baby steps where you can buy sell and hold within the banking system. Instead of creating a fully functional regulated market and the government you know nobody wants the government to suspend their license to operate. So i can. I can see why but that's what i expect to see in the future. Is you know people. Using banks to hold their crypto currency and trying to make transaction or something like that and the bank really. Oh we have. We have a white listed this address. We don't know who it belongs to for the listeners out there cryptocurrency is designed and most likely will replace thanks yes iraq or banks but replaced the us dollar an all currencies around. The globe is bureaucracy. Eating machine much like the internet was back in the day. It ate a lot of you know a lot of bureaucracy. A lot of businesses. You re they had to redesign their entire business model around the internet because now information can travel so much faster. Well yeah just look at it. The largest company in the world right now exists almost entirely on the internet amazon. Yeah sturm it. I don't know what that have amazon stores. You're from that. They have like they want in seattle. And they use it as like It's kind of a showroom slash testbed like they were testing people's Their handprint connected to their amazon accounts. He could go into the store and like just grabs off the shelf and go through the self checkout and then when it's time to pay just hold your hand up to the thing and they read your handprint in. They connected to your amazon account. Whatever payment method. You have amazon. I handed debits against the records. All the things just like a regular amazon transaction online would record okay and then you walk out the door and there's no like person checking you out so it's a self serve store but you gotta pay with your handprint which i find. Creepy amazon also bought a grocery store chain. I can't remember the name of it foods. Yeah so they're definitely trying to get free retail retail retail's or is it all online now now. There's plenty of retailers at least five stores in the seattle area. That i'm aware of okay. Worldwide imagined the vast majority of amazon's businesses people just going to amazon dot com or opening amazon app. Oh sure i mean. it's the internet. Made that possible. And who knows what crypto currency is going to make possible if banks are smart. they'll transition their model from traditional banking into being wallet provider. Yeah but they're not smart. They're just evil more coming up. This is free talk.

It's been an awesome time. He it's very chill very relaxed today. More so than usual. I mean especially given the day so so early in the day. Most people are still sleeping off their hangovers. apparently a fair number of things got broken by drunk people may have been some stumbling and falling somersaults. Things of that nature. Sounds like a good time. I for sure did that earlier in the week. I don't remember the exact. Let's just say there were. There was a seven foot tall fence and a drunken me jumping the seven foot tall fence in order to go swimming. Boy yeah here you got what at like. Oh yeah oh. I made it to the pool but injuries were injuries happened. Not major injuries or anything like that right. His some bruises. Yeah but is not the best. Not the best decisions i've ever made but it was fun and i i went swimming important for about four seconds because it turns out that water is really cold even during the daytime when it was like ninety degrees that water was still really calling out and water generally not the warmest thing. Yeah and this was. This was definitely not. But i want to say thank you to lord porcupine who has a platinum level amplifier porcupine. Who has made his presence felt around here. he's here. he's a platinum level amplifier. Which means he gives twenty five dollars or more per month to the program. Of course we don't ask that. All we ask is five dollars per month to join in with a number of cool little features like there's an empty group on the matrix server.

Every a larger audience and let people express their opinions to roughly two hundred radio stations across the united states. So lord occupied thank you so much for your contributions we hope you continue listening and uplifting the show indeed lord porcupine is here at four a lot of the of the fires that i've talked about over the last twelve. Thirteen days are in fact or were here at forecast right. It occurs to me to the lord. Porcupine may have called himself lured. Before i obtained my lordship actually attain a lucia them captain kick ass is an official lord. I've purchased a very small piece of property in scotland. And that's that's what you know and it was. You know one of these online things. And i can go visit whenever i want and that kind of thing but i don't know if lord porcupines lordship is official or not so i would rather be unofficial personally. You might have to have a lowered off a lord down walls. Thank you couple of lords in a dual so anyway there's other stuff happening in the crypto currency world. Evidently this is the difference between the chinese regime and the american regime. The american regime is going to us. Banks crypto currency exchanges as a way of controlling crypto currency. The because they they recognize that they can't control a directly but they don't have to if they have all of the crypto currency exchanges and wells fargo and bank of america already binning their knee and willing to integrate crypto currency. In a way that the american government approves of china on the other hand takes the much harder approach of. We're just going to ban it altogether or whatever it is that they're doing well in so far in this episode freetalklive. We've talked a little bit about china and the the horrible things that are being done to the over there And then we've also talked a little bit about cryptocurrency so so a china bans crypto currency. Then it's it's even more reason to use crypto. Because i think that would speed up everybody else's adoption of it. Well it also you know for a fact it wouldn't be going to oppress and slaven torture the weaker muslims in the province right so this Also from bitcoin dot com china's oldest exchange exits bitcoin business amidst regulatory pressure so bt see ostensibly. The first crypto currency exchange established in china for bitcoin china or something i believe so yeah exited the bitcoin trading business Last week according to statements this was the result of the continued regulatory pressure. Beijing is exerting on cryptocurrency businesses. The company will now transition to blockchain related endeavors. Only so they're getting out of the currency part of that will focus on more database stuff. Apparently well. I don't think there'll be a successful doing that well. Btc once ran the most prolific exchange in asia before it announced that its exiting the cryptocurrency. Business say i blame them by nance essentially pulled out of the united states. Cryptocurrency had crypto currencies. We're like okay. Well we're done with this because you people can't make up your mind as mitch and kirk dough. Currency is is almost illegal in the state of new york it's not illegal but as so tightly regulated ensure the monopoly and -opoly something to that. Yeah and of course we oppose monopolies because they're all they can only exist when they're backed by violence. I mean it's a lot of people prefer coke over pepsi. But there's always going to be those people who prefer pepsi overcoat. rc cola. and there's always going to be people who don't get that when you have governments you have this is your option and that's it. Yeah and that doesn't work for all the people. So let's have some competition not monopoly. It's never a one-size-fits-all this goes on to say that. Most of the crypto currency exchanges based in china actually ran overseas years ago during the first cryptocurrency. Crackdown in two thousand seventeen. But now the government is tightening. Its grip on crypto to avoid capital losses. The people's bank of china is now targeting otc businesses and crypto currency related accounts these pita otc businesses that the peer to peer and over the counter for those who don't know p2p otc main. These businesses targeted will have their accounts frozen. According to local reports of course china has their own digital currency now that they can track and control. They don't want you to use the one that they can't tracking trump's. They already have that with we chat. Or whatever i mean. They had something built into it. I think so. Yeah i mean. I'm not sure to what extent the digital currency china is different from the fiscal currency. Other than i think. They're just trying to phase out. The fiscal currency. Think should only. Yeah you'll all oppressive regimes are when you're dealing with a state backed currency. There's realistically no difference between writing someone a check or sending a wire transfer or handing someone cash. It's all just a usd transaction right and writing someone check as the equivalent of just giving them cash or using a debit card. Online is the equivalent of using digital currency. Yes so it. All gets very confusing. The only reason that the. Usda isn't a digital currency evidently is because it does have a physical form and in order to be considered a digital currency. It seems it has to be digital only you. It doesn't make any sense to me. Because i mean we all know that there's not enough. Usd physical usd dollars in coins in the world to even come close to the amount of university. That's traded on a daily basis. It's something like three percent of the. Us money supply actually exists in cash for a miniscule amount of what is so. I don't understand what the problem is with the transitioning or how they have to create some other thing to be called digital currency when it's already digital and this is certainly true in china as well you know. They certainly have debit cards and credit cards and stuff like that ways spending their their money online or digitally without having to actually you know mel someone a check or whatever so i think in china's cases just a matter of them trying to phase out the physical currency because it's easier for them to close down someone's bank account than it is for them to search and seize the person and take all of their physical currency. This this is just another way for the chinese government. Took control people. It is and in fact Says an offshoot of the company is now operating in hong kong however issued a statement explaining that the crackdown would not affect them. And we'll see that The company stressed that mainland china's restrictions would not affect its cash flow it declared Btc is not impacted for now because btc doesn't provide trading of cryptocurrencies but derivatives of crypto currencies building themselves legally as sheriff for derivatives. The company will now shift to building blockchain based applications the government of china supports the use of blockchain and made it one of its focuses in its fourth industrial revolution program. So and this of course comes on the heels of the mining. Crackdown that i think we've covered extensively here on free talk live and the crackdown of businesses. Being able to just sell cryptocurrency cressey to people in general is interesting that the chinese government it seems to still be allowing one individual to transact crypto currency to another individual but ultimately yeah just wants to transition people to having all of their money tied to their identity and their registration with the chinese government has said that if there social credit gets too load the chinese government can just pull the plug on the ability to use money. The the governments don't like cryptocurrency is visa. It makes people easier to control. You know when when it's in a bank when you're when you have. Us control harder to control them dollars or euros in a bank account. They can just call up your bank and be like freeze this account. They can't do that with crypto. They gotta actually you know raid your house you know. Come in and steal your computers in order in order to steal it and even even that isn't percent effective people who have memorized their private keys. Or whatever or their recovery pass phrases cryptocurrency is definitely a solution to a lot of problems that governments and banks created voluntary's infrastructure in action.

We're heading for the border on today's travel with rick steves. The canadian border well. The pandemic closed the us. Canada border to all but essential workers for longer than anyone could have imagined. It's famously been touted as the longest peaceful national border in the world. A few years ago puerto fox found the border is not always so easy to identify when it runs through lakes and rivers that keep flowing in changing his trip along. The border demonstrated the western poll of both nations. And what it means to have good. Puerto fox joins us for a closer look at the northland in just a bit. Further south kimberly levada wrote one hundred things to do in san francisco before you died. She recommends some of the great day trips within easy reach of the city. Let's open today's travel with rick. Steves looking at some of the memorable experiences. You can have in america's national parks writer and photographer. Becky lomax is the daughter of a national park ranger. She was raised in the mount ranier and olympic national parks and now lives next glacier national park. She's written a detailed guide to the usa published by moon. Today's interviews were recorded before the global. Pandemic becky thanks for being here. Thank you you've written a book. It's a seven hundred page guide covering the national parks. Let's just take a blitz around the country and talked about some of the most unforgettable experiences that you could have and i'm just gonna paging through your book just mentioned and you can describe them for us and we can kind of put our travel dreams into action here. You talk about watching the ice calve. In glacier bay correct calvin. Is that what that's called yes. These are tidewater. Glaciers glaciers that come down and touched the water okay and then as the glaciers pushing ice down it breaks off. That's the calving okay. And then you get these icebergs floating out there. The way to go see them is via a cruise boat. So you take a cruise crew and then you don't wanna get too close. Because when i was they made a big point of it. Don't be stupid and get too close with your little boat. Because of freakishly big piece of ice can break out create a little tidal wave. Exactly and you could be in the cold water exactly and you can also do. There's kayak tours that go up to see him and so forth. So that'll be glacier. National help out the famous one going to yellowstone and watching old faithful. That's absolutely wonderful now. The old faithful is it still faithful. Yeah it's about ninety minutes. I'm heading in this winter. It's the best time to go. Because in summer you'll be watching old faithful erupt with you know so thousand other people. You gotta wait. Ninety minutes went yes in winter. Her you go in and you might be one of twenty people watching it. Yeah i just in iceland and there's a place called geyser And it's where the guys who came from. Oh fun the geyser. There goes every three or four minutes. Okay and i got a chance to kind of study it and you don't want to blink because if you've waited a you know if you've waited for what eighty nine minutes and you pause or you look around and then old faithful goes you gotta wait another eighty nine minutes right. So i learned at geyser in iceland at the water kind of billows up yes and then it blows you look at the water and if it starts to billow up. It's ready to burp. Yes is a little pre-action that's what have you noticed that faithful. Yeah and it usually gets the crowd all wrapped up with what's happening. It's happening kind of backs off a little bit then went you to these laws. Go all the way round in your book. You talk about wildflowers in death valley. That looks beautiful when death valley gets the right moisture. That's when this will happen because people say a common misperception is a desert is just a vast nothingness with no laugh so much life high much and when you get those right conditions all the sudden it's instant both hops. Okay so wildflowers. What month is march using their. Yes you talked also about the longest cave system in the world of crawling that at mammoth cave. Mammoth cave yes would i do. Tours is a claustrophobic. If are by providing that right so but that that would be one of the highlights in your. I've long dreamt about rafting down the grand canyon. You spend that it's over two hundred miles long. A lot of people raft a little bit of it and then they have a quick exit. Other people do the whole thing but that takes a lot of time usually twenty one days if you do the full trip without a motor on the you've got the idea to take three weeks to raft the whole thing or you can boat the whole thing with a motor. What's the pros and cons of doing it. The traditional way without a motor or just motoring through. I would think you'd have to debate. Do i wanna really raft and just do part of it. If i've only got a week or do i want to do the whole thing quickly. With a motor. What you doing with the motor. Those boats are really big. You'll hit the rapids differently than you will. If you're in a small dory or a small raft if you're into the thrills you'll get much more bang for your buck on the smaller okay. You're more intimate with. Oh totally the rapids. Yes is it more demanding physically more dangerous. Is it less enjoyable that way for some people. Yeah if you're if you're if you're a tender you might find it easier to take the motorboat exactly you can still a drag your toes in the water and have experienced and you'll still see the beautiful cliffs and everything one of the most beautiful things you talk about in your guidebook is the rainforest in the whole river in olympic national park hosts a little bit about that experience. You know. it's a work of art over there. it really is. You've got these ancient trees. Beautiful cedars maples in. They're all just dripping with maas and ferns all over and it's not a tropical rainforest most reinforcer tropical. This is one of the only temperate rainforest cracked it. Looks like someplace. Where trolls and things should be. You know lord of the rings like that and they do a great job of teaching when you go there. Interpretive incompetence is is a great one you can go take that interpretive wa. So if you're interested in trees of course you wanted to the big ones in california. Where would you go for your big tree. Thrills in california big tree thrills would be in the redwoods and seeing those they ever be sequoia and kings and the biggest story of all issaquah and. That's a very easy visit for anybody. That's basically a road trip isn't it. E just short walks back to the trees. this travel with rick steves. We're talking with becky lomax. Her book is usa national parks. And we're just flipping through some of her favourite parks some for favorite experiences and one that i think you can just feel your enthusiasm for perks. When you read this book hiking the narrows in zion. That looked so cool. Will you got. I want to get your feet wet. Wear boots or do you just get you. Were tennis shoes. And just You can get a little cut up on the rocks so you're better off if you can actually rent some serious boots. Not serious boots. But they're the river shoes made for walking. Oh really okay. And so basically. You're walking right up the water and the cliffs are right here So the water is below your knees generally and you along well yeah can be. You can make it quite long or you can just go with. You can do a couple months. It's a long short turnaround and combat in the same thing in sicily and it was an amazing experience so different that would be hike. The narrows zion ended. It's like in those old movies. If you didn't want the bad guys following you you cannot have tracks because you walk up. The river exactly how narrow is are the clips because it sounds just like a deer could jump from one to the other you know in some places. Those cliffs do narrow in quite a couple of meters across. Yes and then you talk. And this is great for looking at pre columbian civilizations you tour the ancient cliff dwellings in mesa verde. Those are amazing. Totally amazing don't appreciate what was going on. Before columbus discovered america not just a few generations way before the fact that they survived and built their livelihoods in these cliff palaces in the sides of cliffs and they go down and climb in there and built a lot of people under appreciate pre-columbian civilizations and some of these parks are nothing but nature but others are celebration of history. What are some other examples in the parks where you can really celebrate to the civilizations that were here before the arrival of europeans. You know a lot of the parks are trying to do more with bringing that to light. But i mentioned glacier bay. Aren't there prehistoric petroglyphs in southwest. Yeah in several of the park's they're like canyon lands and artists. They've got petroglyphs in a highlight for. Anybody is watching fireflies. A great smokies national park. Yeah they're just period of time. You got to be there. Usually in june and you got to get permit and they're called synchronous firefly's because they all light up at the same time. Sounds so much fun. This travel with rick steves. We're talking with becky lomax about usa national parks and that's the name of her book. You talk about something called park tick sure. Great lodges in these parks and one of my favorite national park experiences was in the paradise lodge at mount ranier. And this is anderson. A work project during the great depression Are there big fireplaces and this old school. Woody charm and great based to hike from. Are there other park. Lodges that become part of the joy of the experience. Yeah yellowstone's old faithful in Glacier parks many glacier hotel built by the railroad instead of assisi project yosemite has some nice places the there so you might be wise. And i'm sure in your book you cover. Accommodation is to make reservations in advance. If you want to stay in something other than a forgettable motel. You need to make reservations a year to thirteen months in advance for most. Is that right. Yes wow plant aheads. Let's talk also about eating. Because i find food tastes better when you're in a park i wouldn't but when you're mean spam and crackers on top of a mountain gourmet absolutely. It's your favorite eating experience. What are you look forward to when you're hiking and enjoying nature you know my favorite when i'm out hiking and so forth it's jerky and it's nuts rather than sitting down and eating some bail sandwich right just like being able to pop stuff in my mouth all day long so you packed with that in mind. I do and then chocolate. The i'm sort of in a picnic aficionado. And i like to augment the experience by creating great set so i'm thinking of a bluff or a peak and then i crack open. Whatever i've got. That's where you just marvel it. I didn't know crackers. And spam could an amazing and that's the beautiful thing about nature you get immersed in nature you realize. Different things are are more important than you realize and different things are less important than you realize. This is travel with rick. Steves we've been talking with becky lomax. Her book is usa national parks becky's so clearly parks connect us with nature. And let's say you could use a friend who'd never been out of the city. Somebody who never marveled at that mossy carpeting of trees. We talked about in the whole river valley and the olympic national park. What national park experience would you share with. this person. who's never been out of the city. I would want them to see wildlife to take them to something like yellowstone or theodore roosevelt national park or everglades. It's amazing to watch wild animals out doing their wild thing as a and where we are the visitor. Exactly becky lomax. Thanks so much for inspiring us to enjoy america's best idea the national parks. Thank you becky. Lomax is book published by moon. Usa national parks when the top prize for guidebooks from the mole. Thomas awards in two thousand nine thousand. Nine hundred becky's newest guidebooks for moon our best of yellowstone and grand teton and one on glacier national park. She's also got a road trip guide to the us and canadian rockies due out soon her website is becky lomax dot com and there's more wilderness to explore long. Us canada border. That's next on travel. With rick steves what lies over the. Us border in. Canada has never seemed very foreign to me. I am rick steves. I grew up. Loving the view of the peace arch when we drive up from seattle to visit relatives. In vancouver it celebrates the longest and friendliest border in the world. Porter fox grew up at the other end of the border in maine before the pandemic closed the border for the first time ever explored the entire length of it to see what it could tell us about our two countries. He describes what he calls. America's forgotten border in his book northland. Our interview with porter was recorded before the pandemic started porter. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. It is kind of a forgotten forgotten in the sense that we sort of take it for granted and nowadays It's getting a little more attention as many people in our nation here are interested in tightening up border security. Just how long is this border. And is it actually the longest in the world. It sure is it's if you include the border up the alaska's well it's close to fifty five hundred miles Just the longest international border in the world you know. Even the lower forty-eight border contains the longest straight border in the world along the forty ninth parallel takes off from lake of the woods in minnesota and ends up in bellingham washington. It's more than twice as long as our southern border and yet our southern border seems to get all the headlines and not only that it gets all of the funding from congress and has many times more border agents close to nineteen thousand at this point compared to the northern border just over two thousand two guard a. That's you know. Well more than twice as long i was so i would think. Part of that is just The economic reality canadians have about the same per capita income. As we do here in the united states whereas there's a tenfold difference in average wealth per person in the united states compared to south of the border. It's true and there's a. There's a lot more illegal. Immigrants trying to cross the border in the south however most of the entries come through ports of entry checkpoints hidden in vehicles and with false documents and whatnot. What's a lot of miles to protect either way on the north and the south when you're looking at the border in the north you've traveled the whole thing. Can you actually see it. I know in the east. it's mostly water. Is it a physical border. What do you see when you see the border. I mean i call it the forgotten border because it's very hard to find the border in the north. Ed traveled most of it and in the east a lot of it by canoe. It's in very remote parts of main upstate. New york vermont new hampshire than shoots across the great lakes for the five great lakes. And you know in may in any way you know. I spent weeks on those rivers and they're literally are no monuments. There's no line. There's no signs that say. Hey don't cross here. The really the only indication is that when you go through town. There's canadian flags flying on one side and american flags flying on the other but for most of it it just looks like a backcountry river country woods. You wrote about in montana. There's the cut which is a visible of deforestation. Does that track the border. It sure does and it's It goes across the border. There's parts where it crosses the the forty fifth through Vermont new hampshire new york therefore any forested section of the border has a twenty foot wide cut on it with twenty foot wide. Cut twenty foot wide. Yeah we're back in the eighteen. Hundreds these. These poor timber guy sent to go through with axes and chop down trees for a close to fifteen hundred miles of forested border with that. Just like neighbors. Stakeout fence goes. So there's no question. Was there physically a canard from washington d. c. to say we need a twenty foot cut so we know where the border is. That's exactly what it was. The international border commission was developed. And they said well to market through the forest. This is what we're gonna do way back when they didn't even know where the border went. Serving techniques were very different. That was marked several times and incorrectly several times. And even now the border strays up to nine hundred feet north or south of where the now it is interesting. You mentioned a lot of the border in the east is Waterways the technical border will jig jag depending on where how deep the water is because i guess the understanding is the deepest point in the lake. The river will be the border. Yeah the deep water. Mark is officially the border and that's shifting constantly in lakes and rivers and so that's partly why they don't market but not marking it and having it move makes it really difficult for fishermen freighters on the great lakes and just people going out to Recreationally canoeing camping. You really don't know where you are half the time you're out. There's lots of times and seventy don't they don't if they're in canada or the united states. Now you mentioned the longest straight line in the world along the forty ninth parallel. That is quite remarkable to think of that long of a stretch words. Just somebody said. That's the deal okay. Your candidate were america. Talk about the anomalies around there. I know north of seattle. You've got point. Roberts with just a little tip of land that's connected with canada. It happens to protrude south of the forty ninth parallel right. Yeah absolutely and you know. The street borders very problematic. They're not many around the world. That's partly why this one is so unique. It's not really a great idea to just kind of snap chalk line across the map and say all right. Here's where this goes it's split Native american tribes in half it splits towns and half mountain ranges in half. It's very problematic where it splits. A watershed and half and rivers start in canada and flow into the us and go back into canada with farms. All around they're drawing from that stream and water rights are extremely complicated and still fought over today. So you know. It was done in a very stressful time. James polk was president and they were trying to figure out oregon territory and how to split it up and after jointly living there for around one hundred years. They finally said listen. We have to finish this border. Here polk was going for a fifty four forty or fight. You might remember the the slogan and fifty four will. Gosh that's up near alaska. Those at the border that the us is fighting for an and british. Canada was happy to say okay. Subtle on the forty ninth and simultaneously the mexican border and the war down there was kind of raging and it was just too much. Let's let's get this thing done. There's towns that are split by the border. You mentioned towns in maine that are in maine and part in quebec. There's towns that are split by the border. There's backyards that are split. There's a pulp factor in mattawamkeag. Maine split in half. There's there talked about the tavern. Where you during prohibition. You could go in from america and you could sit in the back of the room and drink in canada. There were taverns built on the border. During prohibition for that purpose they were taverns built on the river on a barge and they would float the barge over to the american shore. Pick up people. They'd floated to the canadian shore. They'd party all night and then they go back and drop them off the hours of the morning. We're traveling along the four thousand mile border between the lower forty-eight and canada right now and traveled. rick steves. Our guest is travel writer porter fox on several trips over three years porter made his way from maine all the way to washington state following the border. His book is called northland. A four thousand mile journey. Along america's forgotten border tells visit ventures and the people he met along the way. It's interesting that you talk about. The border was ignoring tribal land water basins and so on and that can cause untold problems. It's remarkable we've managed as long as we have without real conflict. Because of that. And my feeling when i travel is when you reach a border it feels like a kind of no man's land between two tribes and we don't really have that with our border do we. Yeah i mean it's interesting when you get real close to that northern border. I i did find a no-man's-land. I found a place where american developers and businesses and whatnot kind of didn't see as much opportunity there because they had to stop at the border at a certain point in candidates a little bit different ninety percent of the canadian population lives within one hundred miles of their southern border. Ten percent of the american population lives within one hundred miles of the northern border. And most of that is in detroit and bellingham other border cities. So it's very on the american side anyway. It kind of is a no man's land and what i found interesting is covering lot of travel. I've kind of gone against the grain and tried to find places that people did not go. And see what that's like i find. That's a really unique experience in this whole journey was like that it was forgotten. Townsend forgotten million acre wilderness. That really saw very few people in in maine and minnesota boundary waters glacier national park. It was just these huge swaths of wilderness and kind of old world living that america really had forgotten and had been left very pristine well. Let's take this journey. Puerto because it sounds fascinating and give us an overview. You started in maine and went to washington state. How did you do the journey. I didn't separate trips. And i started West quality had in maine the easternmost point of the continental us. I took a canoe went up the saint croix river which really marks kind of the first couple of hundred miles of the us. Canada border spent the night in these back. Country campsites sometimes in canada sometimes in maine. Sometimes i didn't know where there's also no cell service on the border. So you're maps don't work quite sound right so if you are traveling along the border it sort of is a no man's land between Two different countries self-services. It truly is you. You lose service with your american provider. And sometimes the canadian provider picks up. Sometimes it doesn't. But i had no maps. I had no gps. That i in through maine. And i grew up in maine. And i i never saw back country like this. I mean it was truly pitch. Black dard. No light pollution at night. No sound no people. Wow now six canoe. And it's october right and you very nice time to get started on a long journey. Not only did a cold is a cold snap when i took off and It was early mid october and they got their first frost of the year. And it was a canoe a canoe. And and it's starting to ice up. And wow it was. It just made everything a little bit more more intense. But after that canoe trip i Came back calm and wrote up that section of the journey and the next next trip. I did i took was a passenger on a seven hundred and forty foot freighter that left from montreal and follow the border across for the great lakes and left me off and thunder bay up in ontario. A couple of hundred miles. North of duluth minnesota freighter. That was a bulker. Yes it was carrying iron ore out. Did they have a few travelers that they rented well what they have is. They have rooms for the crew. They had an owner's suite that i luckily was assigned to and they take passengers. The lakes are interesting. ocean freighters actually will rent rooms. And you can purchase a twenty four day passage to indonesia because of security on the lake since nine eleven. It's been very tight. They don't really do that but they do have. Rooms for family for friends for owners investors. I'd told them about my project. Said hey that sounds interesting. We'd love to offer you a passage in this was through this you call. The sweetwater sees the body of o lakes and canals in water from river from new york. Pennsylvania ohio into the great lakes. Exactly and and i was following the kind of adventures of samuel de champlain. Who started near west quality head. That's really where the first french outpost in the new world was. And then he went up the saint lawrence and found his way into the great lakes. Quarter fox is our guest on travel. With rick steves. He writes about his discoveries along the friendliest border in the world in his book. North land four thousand mile journey along america's forgotten border puerto also edits. The online literary travel magazine called nowhere. His website is order. Fox dot com by the way our interview was recorded before the pandemic closed the border to non essential travel. What's it like to actually sale as sort of as a trip through the great lakes. It is very slow. It's very long really. Feels like you're on an ocean when you look out the bridge window. You can't see land anywhere. it's just all water all around you you know. I grew up sailing off the coast of maine. I was used to that but certainly not used to that. In the middle of north america. It was truly stunning. And it was really easy to see how champlain would have thought that. He had discovered the northwest passage to china that he was looking for. It certainly looked like the shore of an ocean when you enter lake ontario and and the same for every other leg but of course you know at the edge of every lake. He kneeled down and tastes. The water realized there was no salt in it and it was sweetwater and sweetwater sees so i can just see him going best. I'm sure you survived that. And then came the boundary waters between minnesota's northland's and toronto. Yeah pretty close to thunder bay. The beginning of the boundary waters starts at the pigeon river and goes up into northern minnesota and and a chain of lakes and rivers. That goes right along the border. All the way to lake of the woods and the beginning of the northern plains. I did the boundary waters canoe area. Which is a million acre wilderness area. That was a keystone of the wilderness. Act in the. Us and is one of the most pristine and most protected wildernesses in the us. You can't take any kind of mechanized craft there. You can't even take a paddle boat into these lakes and rivers. You can't fly an airplane below three thousand feet over this region. It is extremely pristine lake country in deep deep forest and You wrote very interestingly wrote if you're not on the water you're in the woods yet there's not much in between and so we would paddle from one lake to the next and then we would portage. Put the canoe on our shoulders and mortgage into the next one. We had a terrific guide. Who had been an arctic explorer and and really knew the history of of the area very well and we just paddled along the border for days it was. It was really stunning. And that was kind of the end of the the water section of the border and of the first third of it and from there i hit the road to Follow the kind of cross the northern plains and as i was crossing them i heard on the radio but the standing rock protests and Had read about the sioux nation. As this terrific northland tribe for hundreds of years. And and so. The next section was really focused on that history. And and this was the demonstrations against the dakota access pipeline. Right yeah absolutely yeah. Yeah near cannonball north dakota and jin reservations along the border areas and there. Oh there's many in a dozen or split by the border from east to west. When i was in maine on the past quality reservation that split in half i spoke to the zoo to the black. Venus spoke to the lami and your memories from just traveling in the reservations. That's a lot of miles on the border. It's very destitute and it's not very populated destitute. Meaning very sad. Economies of very poor. Not spiritually spiritually incredibly rich and powerful and very independent and really hopeful. The people that i spoke with and didn't like to be characterized as destitute at all. I said well this. Is you know this is kind of the reality of where we are. But they've really been dealt a bad hand by washington d. c. for the last couple of hundred years literally having treaties and deals promised to them just pulled out from under their feet time and again and the same thing happened. It's at standing rock. As far as the constitution goes it was illegal. What happened in the oil companies prevailed. What i saw in what my takeaway was. Was this incredible sense of hope. And the way that they're spared just could not be defeated. They're not going to be knocked down by this terrible decision that the judge handed down they just kept going in and honestly splintered off to every corner of north america and are fighting this fight against the big oil companies other pipelines in the tar sands oil fields and and Coal ports out on the coast of washington and so that movement is really just begun which you know in the face of that defeated standing rock was actually a very inspiring moment and again diving into the history of it in and seeing this massive territory that the zoo nation controlled really quite efficiently and well. It makes up today. One fifth of the continental united states and and that was the territory that they you know at the time traded away for peace that is very advanced tribe as we're as were many tribes in north america. You know major cities in the midwest and and native american civilizations but of course that doesn't make it into the history books horrifies shadows forty ninth parallel along west to from montana to washington state in just a minute on travel with rick steves then we head south for some of the day trips you can take within easy. Reach of san francisco porter. Fox's our guest. Right now. In traveled to steve's puerto details his adventures along the us canadian border in his latest book northland. He's also the editor of the online literary travel magazine called nowhere. His website is puerto fox dot com so part of tickets down the final section of your journey. The medicine line following. Us route to from montana all the way to washington. Yeah so the medicine line is the forty ninth parallel that just shoot straight out to the pacific and i drove that section and kind of wandered Back and forth from the border down into the great plains and then and to Eventually through idaho and eastern washington and up into the cascades and You know really. That was one of my favorite parts of the trip. It was on the opposite side of the country. From where i grew up and to be able to recount how these border surveyors spent years traipsing across the plains and through the cascades climbing mountains that had never been clients by a white man before and marking them and reading about again. The date of american history there in the history of oregon territory. And how you know. The british and americans were living there and at the same time by agreement then suddenly that even before them how russian america stretched down the coast from down to san francisco. Too much of this territory. I mean it was just against so much history that really builds from the eastern side of the border straight across to the west every hundred miles. You cross your covering twenty years time. It did grow that way from east to west and so traveling at that way. I got to sort of bring the story up to present time in those in that last Thousand miles of the trip. It kind of takes you through history of the westward movement of the united states. It does yeah. It'd be good to do this trip from maine to washington rather than the other way because it's in chronological order. Exactly and that's that's why i did the trip in that direction on and i was writing about the sixteen hundreds and the seventeen hundreds in in maine and by the time i was out in washington. I was writing about the twentieth century. And and you finish at another indian reservation a constant reminder that there were people here before that border was drawn and they're living on reservations and letter cases. Now the lemme reservation. What was the endpoint of your four thousand mile journey like You know it was very serendipitous. When i was at standing rock The one night there was a big presentation there. It was the lemme tribe and that was the one night they were there. They happen to be driving a totem pole that they had carved on lemming island and they were driving it to a protest out east and so i just happened to be there and i listened to them and i was just enthralled with everything that they had to say when i got out to washington and i kind of finish the trip i was heading down towards seattle and i saw the the sign for lumpy islands. In the lemme reservation got gotta go. I went and i just by chance picked up a hitchhiker studied Painting an art with one of the totem pole eight. It would just all very naturally good way to trip and we got a cap up this interview. Just very quickly Where did you have a wildlife. Encounter. where did you meet some interesting animal. Oh my gosh. Saw some bears running across the road. Northern maine. I had probably on the canoe trip on the saint croix in maine where one point The middle the night had otter run between my feed into the river and and there were beavers. That were coming up in a little eddy right next to To the campsite. Just watching me. They weren't afraid of me at all. It's like they'd never seen a person before. And then what kind of patriotism did you find on either side. Did you notice flags on one side more than the other where the facilities tidier on one side than the other. How could you draw any conclusions about candidate. in america. In that regard. I saw an equal number of flags on both sides of the border and the closer to the border line. I got the the more flags there were. Canadians are very proud of their side of the border. And americans are as well They also get along very well and their businesses and families and church congregations are interlaced all the way across the northern border and they always have been right from day one. The northern border was never meant to be a hard border. It was never meant to have a wall or have You know military style checkpoints There's been cooperation between these two countries. Since before these two countries even existed but can that free flow survive in a post nine eleven world or has taken a hit and does that hurt the communities. It's taken a big hit and it has been inhibited. Greatly to the tune of around thirty billion dollars a year for american and canadian businesses and certainly for people and families and hospitals sitting on one side and their doctors live on the other side of the border. You have our to our three hour. Delays at that border line That really are not catching many criminals or illegal immigrants or are smugglers because they all go through the back country. It's really just slowing down and and really hurting that kind of international relations at tragedy. I mean as europe evolves. There's fewer and fewer border formalities. And people can connect and share and team up and in the united states. We have to have this security after nine eleven. And there's a reality. there's four thousand miles of potential community. That now has you write about how. In the old days there was over one hundred crossings that were unmanned at night absolutely and and i mean to this day canada's our number two trading partner number one oil importer is an incredibly huge part of the us economy and again the people living on both sides of the border are incredibly connected. And the way. That washington is Shaping policy for this northern border. It is nothing more than pure ignorance. They're unaware of what the local situation is there because they haven't studied it. They're mimicking what they do on the south And they're putting it into the north and they're two completely different borders that need completely different policies maybe rather than catering to the fears of their constituents if they would take a couple of weeks and travel along that border they'd have a better understanding. I think that's a great idea. Puerto fox thanks for sharing your experience in your book northland. Four thousand mile journey along america's forgotten border happy travels. Thanks so much. You'll find links to puerto fox's northland book and articles. He's written about his adventures in the notes for this week. Show it's at rick steves dot com slash radio now. That california is officially reopened. Kimberly levada knows that favorite pastime of many of her neighbors is to take a day trip or plan a weekend getaway to explore the scenic attractions within a couple hours. Drive of san francisco. Kimberly wrote hundred things to do in san francisco before you die and includes plenty of ideas just outside the city in her guidebook just a reminder our interviews recorded before the pandemic hi kimberly. Thank you for having me so. I'm just going to list some day trips. That we'd consider visiting from san francisco and and get your take on them when we're when we're looking to spice up our visit to that great city. If you're in san francisco always hear the word sausalito. What about sausalito. Sausalito is is great because it's even less than a day trip. You could go there for coffee. You could go there for lunch. It's just about a fifteen minute sail across from the ferry building. I happen to live in sausalito now. I just moved from san francisco. It's this lovely town with restaurants and galleries and cafes along the water and it's really wonderful and you get a great view so sort of trendy and it's got seafood restaurants and it's got nice houseboats. What four hundred houseboats and near south sweeter. We've got the muir woods national monument. Tell us about that. The mayor woods national monument is some of the oldest coastal redwoods. You'll find and it's also very easy daytrip whether you're driving or you could take the ferry to saas alito and then there is a bus that goes there if you are driving you you need to make a parking reservation so they do limit the number of people that are in the park via this parking reservation but completely worth it. Get there early before the tour buses arrive in. It's it's impressive these tall redwoods and there are a few hiking trails through there or you can just sit on a bench and take it all in understand. This has been actually protected for more than one hundred years now so giant redwoods and miles of trails through the forest through the kenyan. Yes quite beautiful nice now. That's to the north of san francisco to the south on the coast. We have half moon bay. Yes half moon bay and my co author. Jill robinson actually lives in half moon bay and she loves it down there. It's quaint little town own. And there are kayak companies and seafood restaurants. It's also well known for its mavericks surf competition with a giant ganic waves that role in during the winter. I believe and yeah. It's not very far from san francisco and it's also very easy daytrip or go down for lunch. We want to watch the surfers. Is that something. That's all year long or or just in certain seasons. I i do believe people surf there all year long but this particular competition mavericks is a certain time of year and just for safety albanian. Say back a little bit. yeah i'll never forget. I had a beautiful vacation down there in a wonderful b. b. there's some great bnb's in half moon now for thinking about more seashore. We've got point. Reyes national seashore. That's north of san francisco as well. People love to go out there for recreation and there are miles and miles of. It's a protected sea shore and miles and miles of trails to hike. And it's a great day especially if you're active it's beautiful photographs and wanna sunny day. I think it's one of the places that can't be beat in the bay area. Conic lighthouse. yeah and a couple of small towns. You can stop at any point. Radio station has a few little great places to stop for coffee or pack up your picnic. We always hear about the sandri fault. You can actually see that known. Point rhys kanye. Gosh that's that's i didn't know. Yeah so there's lots of nature wonderland. They're definitely talk about karma by the sea. Well carmel by the sea is gonna be a little bit of a longer trip from san francisco. But that's okay and it's also a gorgeous drive of course it's connected to monterey via the famous seventeen mile drive and pebble beach. Everyone's heard of and carmel by the sea is yet charming little town of galleries and restaurants lots of hotels. It's a great way to spend a day and it's probably about two two and a half hour drive from san francisco and it seems like these beach towns. A lot of them have a colonial. Sorta heritage got the caramel mission. There in but then it's the it's sort of a haunt of artists and surfers these days in carmel by the sea. Well there's a lot of nature trails down there and it does feel quite wild along the coast especially as you start to head south towards big sur and whatnot. It does start to get pretty wild kimberly. Levada is helping us explore fun. Outdoor day trips within easy. Reach of san francisco on travel with rick. steves. Kimberly reminds us to make reservations whenever possible. To be sure you can get into wineries and restaurants. She's the co author of one hundred things to do in san francisco before you die and she's also just written corporates portrait of a community in quarantine. Website is kimberly nevado dot com. Somebody's never been to san francisco before their tempted to go up to napa valley. It must be the number one destination. Tell us about napa valley and is it worth the trouble to go up there. And what are your tips to enjoy it. I absolutely recommend napa valley. Because it's not that far from the golden gate bridge. It's about a forty five minute. Drive to the town of napa and something that i've seen having an often san francisco. Now since nineteen ninety the town of napa itself used to be kind of a drive through town. You sort of gas up and go and then go visit wineries but napa. The town is actually quite hopping now with restaurants in great hotels. They have the napa valley wine train. Which if you don't feel like driving they have various tours. Now that you can get on and off at different wineries. That's nice so you can drink to your heart's content and get back on the train. Yes and then you have to eventually leave the train station. There's a but the but train goes from winery winery. Yeah there are various tours. There's dinner tours. Quick stop it three. It depends on what wineries you wanna stop at the higher higher priced wineries for lack of a better description will cost more. But it's a lovely experience. It's very orient-express california style and a lot of them serve a meal on there as well so yeah the napa valley wine trains doing a great job of mixing it up allowing different. Whatever type of tour you want you can experience and yeah you don't have to drive and you know where to go. Someone else's made those decisions for you know. I've done wine tasting and a lot of different areas. But i've never done in napa valley. Just can you walk us through what. What's the process. Do you make a reservation. Does it cost money. Kind of alternatives are there. And what's it like to tour a winery in napa valley. Those are all good questions and it depends is the answer so napa valley. A lot of the wineries are reservation only but only because they want to limit the amount of people that want to be able to service you correctly and they don't want to be overrun with people and not be able to help people so most why a lot of wineries we'll take reservations. Some you can walk in and there is often tasting fee because they don't want people just come in and drink a bunch of wine and leave but often that tasting fees is waived. If you buy a bottle of wine so it works out in everyone's favor. There are some great wineries that you can go and spend a lovely day. Alpha omega is one that comes to mind. This gorgeous patio with fountains that you can just sit out there all day if you want. Which makes it very dangerous. This is travel with rick. Steves we're talking with kimberly levato and she. Along with joe robinson written a book called one hundred things to do in san francisco before you died and a lot of those things. Might be getting out of town and day-tripping kimberly when you go to the city by the bay. You might wanna spend some time on the bay. What are some options to get out there and enjoy san francisco bay. Oh yes you cannot come to san francisco not get out so first of all are our fairies are great a lot of people do it anyway because they want to go to alcatraz or sausalito or angel island and so you're already on the ferry and it has great views of the skyline the golden gate bridge over the red and white fleet the blue and gold fleet have highlight cruises like sunset cruises and cocktail cruises. There's the rocket boat ride that's for the adrenaline thrill seekers. You know who want to go fast and embiid boat there even kayaks. I mean you can kayak on the bay of your if you're strong and brave enough down by south beach and at and t. park. There's a city kayak company. No you live in sausalito and you mentioned that's just a fifteen minute ferry ride away from december and then when he get to sausalito or there can you rent. Boats are got on the bay from sausalito. Is that something you do from san francisco. No you could rent their kayak companies in in saas toledo. Either as walks. Most people come and walk along the water. It's got a great view. Back to san francisco but sure you can get on kayaks. They're a lot people rent bikes and bike over the bridge to to sauce alito. If you can believe it it's a long one but it's fun and it's you know you see it all you rent the bike down in about fisherman's wharf and the need ride all the way over the bridge and down the hill into sausalito. And it's a great way to see a lot. Can you put comeback by the very. They used to do it that way but now they've made it easier. These companies have parking and sausalito now. And you leave your bike claire and and yeah you can back uber back or take the ferry back very nice snow. A lot of people fly into oakland. Go straight into san francisco. What would you do in oakland. Is that worth the side trip from san francisco. Oh absolutely and actually. I have an author of one hundred to oakland before you die. And she's covered it all. She lives over there. But yeah oaklands got a great booming restaurant scene now. I hear they have a great chinatown. Bart is an easy ride over to oakland from san francisco. A lot of people go over and head to the berkeley campus as well. And that's all accessible by bart so it's economic. I'll accessible if you like local writing on the board so that's cool. Yeah and finally. What about the santa cruz beach walk. So i think the santa cruz beach boardwalk. It's so quintessentially california to me with the wooden boardwalk in the old wooden roller coaster and arcade games and they do summertime cinema on the sand. And it's just a great great retro feel to the place and there's a lot of surfing goes on down there. There's a surf museum down. There are some great little hotels retro motels. that have been renovated. And it's a it's a great way to to get a slice of owl's old california sounds like a little bit like a bay area. Venice maximus angeles. That's a great way to describe it. Yeah i like that. And you have your santa monica pier down there same type of feel except i think. Santa cruz is much older than a parade of people from loving slices of late. Yes definitely yeah. And it's it's quite nice down there and the the weather is often a little bit nicer can cisco in the summer. Santa cruz beach boardwalk.
