Nancy Pelosi calls rule-flouting salon visit a 'setup'

"Well, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not apologetic about her recent visit to her hair salon in San Francisco. There's more to this that I'm not going into as to the motivation. Of a salon to say to make Yes, come in, and then They go from there. It was clearly a set up for more case, CBS News anchors Jeff Bell and Patty Rising, spoke with KCBS and chronicle instead of film, a tear to find out some of the back story. He'll give us your insider take on how this has played out. Well, I'm not sure if it was a set up for a walk in whatever you want to call it, You know, a few years back. I was talking with a Democratic political consultant who specializes in operas. Decision research. No, that's basically where you dig up embarrassing things on people. And he explained to me that you know if a politician blows through a million dollars on a bad building project that just goes over the voter's mind. But if you have a video of them or a picture of them, reaching into a piggy bank and taking a nickel, that's something everyone can understand, And that's what this is. It's only a nickel, but it's something that everyone understands. It's either I didn't get a haircut. I can't get a haircut. Why is she getting a haircut or a small business saying I can't open? I wanted to open. I'm following the rules. She wasn't in this hair salon, however you put it. It's not a good look. And I'm not sure she made it any better today. I want to talk to you about that. Because I found her response. Curious at least if she wanted the story to go away. Why not say whoops? You busted May I'm sorry, but instead saying that, you know she got tricked into it. It seems like it gave the story. More legs. Absolutely, which started out As we said, I said with reaching for coming out with a nickel a shiny nickel, and that's all it is. It's a nickel. Hey, no big deal. She turned it into a dime by not saying. I'm sorry I made a mistake and moving on that would have ended it and said she says it was a set up. They let me come in now. Granted, the owner of the salon could have said No, We're not opening up. We're not taking our customers. Even Nancy Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi should have also known the rules around San Francisco or the state of California. She Represents the district. This is probably the biggest topic going on right now. Short of the wildfires is the reopening and the tensions about who's gets to reopen. And who doesn't so, Patty? Yeah, ifyou're in it, stop digging. Just say I'm sorry. There may be more to this story will come out in time. But for right now I take responsibility and I'm sorry I made the mistake. That's not what you know, and in another time, this might blow over fairly quickly, but we are in the final stretch of especially contentious presidential election campaign. I imagine that Republicans will seize on this in broader ways. Well, Donald Trump already has. And it's a tit for tat because Nancy Pelosi in the past has made a point of Donald Trump not taking responsibility for his actions and saying it was a set up And now she's saying it now granted the It's not necessarily equal in the size of what's going on, but it becomes the tip protect. I'm not sure it's going to swing any election. I think a lot of people's minds and made up but what it does do It makes you think about elected people being different than you and I, and that's something that we could do less so it will use less of in this

AMC, Universal Agree to Trim Theatrical Window Before Movies Go Online

"Who still don't want to go to the movie Theater will love this news. AMC theaters and Universal Pictures have agreed on an agreement to release Big Hollywood films. For home viewing much sooner than before. That would shorten the traditional gap between theatrical release in home release for Marquis, CBS News anchors Jeff Bell and Patty Rising, spoke with Stephen Gaydos, executive vice president of content of Variety magazine's Stephen, If I've got this right, traditionally, movie had to wait, what, 75 to 90 days before going to home entertainment platforms. Well, that's where we were at a few months ago. That's been a changing story over the years and to give you a comparison. It's not the same all over the world. The last time I checked before probe it The French had a two year what we call a window. So it was two years from the time a movie played in theatres before it could be streaming on your local TV. So what was the reasoning behind this? This was the exhibition industry trying to survive and feeling like if they had to compete with the home systems with the great, uh surround sound on the big screens and all the qualities of the Being at home and being comfortable, uh, that they couldn't survive. So I I believe I think their reasoning was. This is what we need to have Ah, theatrical movie business. It's a two part question. Will the rival studios follow suit and will regal and Cinemark joined him? Well, thanks to my colleagues at variety. I could intelligently answer your questions today because I have a crib sheet in front of me. We have 66 burning questions, which Our experts in Ah, in film at Variety had put up on variety dot com They in their six questions. One of the questions is Will the studios followed suit and, well, the other exhibitors followed suit. Um, I think the important thing to remember about this story today is this is one of those. I've been a variety almost 30 years. This is one of the seismic shifts in the industry. That don't happen very often. And I think everyone in the industry recognises that this is a historic day, and we're still going to be fathoming this and sorting out what it means. Because it's literally changing everything about the movie business in one story that we're talking about. Now the studios have been fighting with, you know, Netflix has gotten bigger and bigger. The streaming options the day and date. Ah, push for that. You know, the windows have been shrinking. And then one day we're on the phone talking. It's here. It's only about two weeks. And if you don't want to go to movie theaters, you can stand your couch and watch it at home. Personally. After five months of Cove it I'm ready to go to a movie. I want to get out of the out. So I find it ironic that in the middle of this, I think a lot of people are feeling like You know what if it's on TV, and and I have a choice, and I go to the movies, I'd love to get out of the house and go to a movie.

60% of Adult Americans Say They're Registered Organ Donors

"Yesterday was national donor day witching courage blood and bone marrow an organ donations amid a national shortage statistics by the health resources and services administration say nearly one hundred and thirteen thousand people in the US are currently waiting for an organ donor KCBS is Patty rising and Jeff bell talk more about it with doctors Vetri fed sun soci a professor of cardiology specializing in heart failure and transplant transplantation is at Baylor college of medicine and app Michael E. DeBakey V. A. Medical Center I understand the the same federal statistics say nearly sixty percent of adult Americans are registered as organ donors has never been been going up it's been going up slightly I think the positive aspect is that there are more living donors last year was that the largest number of both people who donate after they they die and then also living donors and I think we're really encouraged by living donation increasing across the country what do you find some of the misconceptions to be around organ donation I think there's still the fear that if you say you're an organ donor the doctors won't try and save your life I think that still part of the greatest risk that we have people also the families don't realize that even after organ donation if someone is generous enough to to donate organs you could still have a funeral you could still have an open casket funeral you could still honor the person as you might want to in your own tradition while still getting organs so I think those are the two issues one is just the fear of care and then also how you honor someone after death so you obviously want to get as many people that can donate as possible when you look on the medical side have there been advances in medical technology or procedures that have increased the chances that the particular organ donation will be successful well I mean a suppression continues from pro so that really has come a long way I think the the biggest part as far as just even the allocation of the assignment of organs is the practice of Kerr donations where if I want to give an organ for example but I'm not a match I could join up to registry so that may be three tears down the line I need I I could donate to an anonymous person but you have these chains of organ donors for specifically kidneys is that the Rafic organ so Chastain heart were now able to sort of preserve the organs a little bit longer and perhaps use organs that we weren't able to beforehand so there's some technology about just the preservation and sort of tuning up of organs that we might otherwise not have been able to use that that finds is coming along in in the time we have left a one to zero in on those shortages we referenced in our leading to you which are most acute the most secure really going to be for the life prolonging organ so those are going to be live are hard and long because we don't have an easy replacement I think the most important thing is for people if they want to be generous enough to be an organ donor to tell your loved ones tell your friends tell your families because just signing organ donor card unfortunately isn't enough we have to let everyone know that we want to

Number of people suffering from dementia will triple in the next thirty years and efforts to reduce that number need to begin. Now for more KCBS Patty rising in Jeff bell spoke with Michelle Boudreau spokesperson for Alzheimer's Association in northern California. World. Health Organization has released new guidelines for how people can reduce their risk of dementia and report published this week. The W H O says regular exercise a healthy diet and avoiding booze and cigarettes, could stave off cognitive decline in older ages. The report says that the number of people suffering from dementia will triple in the next thirty years and efforts to reduce that number need to begin. Now we're going to talk more about the report. We're joined live on the KCBS ring central Newsline by Michel Boudreau with the Alzheimer's Association in northern California. Thank you very much for talking to us this evening. Thank you, this really strikes me as a common sense report and a common sense approach. Yes, it's something that they Alzheimer's Association has been talking about for a while, because we also watching the scientific evidence emerge and it points today ideas that sort of some common healthy lifestyle factors will help her to people's risk of dementia. One of the things that stands out for me. And looking at this report is the degree to which the report writers went to talk about not doing some things that a lot of people do like to go out of their way to take certain vitamins, or supplements, or eat particular foods. That's right. It's a very well researched report, and they cited strong evidence for certain lifestyle factors as you pointed out, things like exercise and diet, that, that really show that the these things can reduce your risk, there, other things that, that show that there's strong evidence that they don't reduce your risk. So as you pointed out, vitamin b vitamin E other supplements. There's really no research than factories. Search points to the fact that, that doesn't make a difference of possibly not good for your health other recommending, don't do those things and some of the evidence doesn't prove things one way or another. And so more research needs to be done. I could see why people would want to take a supplement knowing that a couple of supplements here, and there will reduce this thing that is so scary, instead of, you know, when you talk about it. Overall healthy lifestyle eating right? And exercise and avoiding cigarette and avoiding too much alcohol. It's harder to do that. Right. And we've been having this conversation when it comes to heart disease, right? Exercise diet. There are things that we can do to really reduce our risk of heart disease. And now we're finding out that the same things apply for dementia. They're hard to do, but their worthwhile. And maybe we could even reduce there's there's some research supports the idea that one out of three cases of dementia can be prevented. That's exciting. That's motivating. What about this notion of keeping our brains healthy by doing crossword, puzzles? Whatever the case might be does that factor into all of this as well. It does. They looked at those things as well. And that belongs in the category of we need some more evidence. And also, when you talk about, you know, brain training, the there's, there's a lot of different types of brain training. So it's very hard to discern. You know, when you go to take a test over and over, you might just be getting good at it and not necessarily protecting your brain or increasing your

They play a brain circuit double negative role by turning off other cells that tend to damp, the response to emotional information.

But if the researchers prevent that from happening, but mice will explore those scary parts of the maze. They're doing that. Because this information in their brain that normally tells them they're in a scary part of the maze. That's no longer there. If no longer as strong of a signal Welby implications for humans are still unclear so whole says of the day may be coming when scientists will be able to help people with anxiety challenges by honing in on these VIP cells.

"UC Berkeley is launching a new cannabis research center and its focus is not on the health impacts of marijuana as KCBS. Jeff bell reports the center is instead looking to learn about the issues surrounding cannabis growth over the years. A number of UC research groups have studied the impacts of pot use how cannabis affects public health how cannabis affects communities, but says Ted Grantham co director of CAL's new cannabis research center, we are focusing primarily on where cannabis is produced and even more specifically we're trying to understand cannabis as agricultural crop. And the way in which this crop affects both the environment and the communities where it's grown. Until recently says Grantham researchers have had very limited access to cannabis growers to learn about their practices, and that information is really essential to understanding how we can best manage this crop to minimize some of the adverse environmental impacts. It'd be on those environmental impacts the center also aims to study the effects of cannabis policies and regulations to better understand, for example, how growers decide whether or not to enter the legal market is Grantham not seen much lower participation in the legal market, and what's anticipated became this research center will draw on a multidisciplinary team of

The devils lost global news twenty four hours a day on air and talk on Twitter, powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries. I'm Michael Barr. This is Bloomberg. Nathan, michael. Thank you coming up on six twenty on Wall Street live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studios. This is Bloomberg daybreak and we're joined this morning by Alex Longley. Bloomberg oil reporter in our London bureau. Nice to talk with you this morning, Alex. And I guess it's safe to say there's a fair amount of anticipation for this meeting coming up in Vienna with OPEC and its allies. We've heard from the Saudi and Iraqi oil ministers just this morning. And there's been quite a few moves. In the price of crude just on some of those comments. Yes, that's in the and it's been a it's been a busy few weeks in the creek Nacchio anyway, fooling like Stein. And then we seem to be staging recovery earlier this week, and and the Saudi energy ministers just that deflate that bubble a little bit. He's said that it's too early to talk about an OPEC agreement when they meet on Thursday, less Elaine and agreement with their allies when they meet on Friday. And so we're seeing lose some of those allegations, but was still up on the day. And that's because of those loads that we've come from the dollars week here. I still expected to make an agreement, but the Saudi energy energy minister, just we'll get back a little bit here. So what's behind that comment? From the Saudi oil minister saying it's too soon to say, what are what are the machinations going on here? Well, as as in the lead-up APEC meeting there's still distance between the most of the parties involved in for the first time in a long time. It's the Saudis in the Russians who are furthest apart here the Saudis wants an output cut to help lift prices Russia's Vladimir Putin has said in recent. Leaks that initially sixty dollars fine. And then when we felt a fifty dollars he said that was fine as well to the Russians not looking to an eager to cut their output. And that's where these deliberations finding a sticking point in the questions of who exactly is going to take what share of the output cuts that could be delivered at the end of the week. Remember, I pick needs a unanimous decision as it does with his allies in order to effectively cuss output or a greasy cuts officially so that stumbling block that if everyone can't get on board with an prohibits the group at least on paper from from Cussing up. Of course, they could then just go castaway to their hearts content on their own, but they wouldn't have the backing of their allies. So does Russia have outsized influence? Do you think on what OPEC decides? Well, the there was talk of Russia, and peck formalizing that longtime cooperation and we heard over the weekend that plan had been put on the back burner because brushing Russia once again said it was it was fine with how things are. And I think that kind of tells you a lot about the dynamic that was. Being unfold at the moment that the Russians are in the driving seat, and there probably will be some kind of compromise. Whether it's an outsized influence, and I mean, you could argue that there are three major producers in the world producing record levels Saudi Arabia, Russia and the US. So if that is that influence outside well, probably not because they are one of the world's most important oil producers and not something that's evolved. Over recent years in reality is probably sort of the new Norman the oil market what influence if any does Alberta's decision this week to to engage in pretty steep production. Cutbacks have on what OPEC might decide this week. Well, there were many yesterday morning at Alba. Who is going to become the next member of APEC? We want anyone expecting to see output cuts from outside of OPEC before the for the and the meeting sorry. But that's that's what's occurred. And it is a big volume three hundred twenty five thousand barrels a day and the problem with Canadian output in Canadian cuts is infrastructure. These the reason these cuts have Hudson come bouncing Canada is because none of the crew can get out and they get towards reducing Canadian inventory. So if you look at it on a on, a spreadsheet points of view where you're looking at global supply and demand global supply will come down next year as a result of the Canadian cuts. But is it going to make a big difference to prices to benchmarks? That's tricky to tell because a lot of that creed wasn't guessing ounce. Anyways, it doesn't change the value of those barrels unless the minute to go here. We know that there are always political differences among the members of OPEC. But when you have Qatar announcing that it's leaving and Iran this week warning, a forty dollar bear forty dollars a barrel oil if there isn't an agreement. How fractured is OPEC in your view. I mean, that's part of the problem going into this meeting in previous weeks leading up to the meetings, we've seen usually it's been the Saudis and Iran that have had the disagreements and really the Saudis and Russians have been ready to to take a decision on the day of the meeting. This time round Saudi Arabia and Russia, a diversion Boudou say it's still got to deal with the political issues kits har- leaving the group early next year. What are they going to do Iran not being happy with the way, it's been treated within the group and potential alliances between Iran and Iraq, then on top of that you've got Libya, and Nigeria we've had sporadic output levels over the last couple of years trying to agree whether they're going to be positive. Also, that's the complication for the group in the lead up to this meeting. There's a lot to work out in the next Bloomberg oil reporter Alex Longley. Thanks as always checking the price of Brent right now. It's up two and a half percent sixty three dollars twenty six barrel. This is daybreak. This is a Bloomberg. Mark..

Scientists use AI to develop better earthquake prediction tools

"Do artificial intelligence and earthquakes have in common? The short answer is that scientists have begun using the former to better understand the latter. KCBS his Jeff bell asked local seismologists to help. Connect the dots. Greg Barrosa is a professor of geophysics at Stanford University and has long had an interest in artificial intelligence. I got into it initially through basically a data mining technique that we developed answers Barrosa minding seismic data has become increasingly challenging because quite monitoring networks are growing from hundreds of sensors to thousands of sensors and before long it'll be tens of thousands of sensors. And with all that input. We absolutely need. The techniques of a I in order to extract as much information as we can. So that ends is Barrosa. Researchers are using a I to scour the raw data in order to search for earthquake smaller quakes that we haven't recognized before. And then says Broza AI conserve and even greater goal helping us explore possible relationships among the sorts of things we think influence our earthquake behavior, for example, the relationships between a large quake and its aftershocks as for the prospect of using AI to actually predict when and where an earthquake will strike Broza says that's not likely to happen anytime soon, but being able to better earthquake. Forecasts are quick prediction. That's the holy grail for us.
