Dorian threatens puerto rico with a direct hit later today. Doreen is expected to move near the turks and keiko silence sad ed southern bahamas on thursday night or friday residents along florida's eastern coast or taking heed as the system could arrive as a hurricane on on sunday while the political storm certainly is heating up and as the election season moves closer so does the push for election security correspondent. Linda kenyon has the story former special counsel robert muller's report on russian election interference concluded among other things that russia did metal in the two thousand sixteen presidential election like july five the senate intelligence committee released its own report concluding the russian government targeted election systems in all fifty states anna testimony on capitol hill last month f._b._i. Director christopher wray said election security is a major concern for his agency. We expect much of the same in two thousand twenty especially with new cyber tools that are continuing to fall in the hands of adversaries who would do us harm. One of those relatively new cyber tools is ransomware to think that this might happen with a voter database is really very disturbing to say the least representative roger christian or more of illinois says with ransomware hackers demand ransom money in in order to release their control of a database. They've done it with school. Systems hospitals police departments and now there is concerned. They will do it with election systems. That's why in congress congress under our leadership. We've put forward measures to try to add resources to state and local municipalities as well as state elections authorities so they can protect our voter databases but the bill has hit a brick wall on four slowly. These measures are now held up by mitch mcconnell in the senate prior to the august congressional recess s. mcconnell. The senate majority leader took a lot of heat for refusing to allow a house past election security bill to come before the senate for a vote republicans traders or un-american unamerican. It makes us policymakers with a different opinion. There's a difference of opinion alright said senate minority leader chuck schumer predict that the pressure will continue to mount downtown republican senators especially leader mcconnell and they will be forced to join us in taking meaningful action on election security this fall not mcconnell doesn't thanks oh no i'm not gonna let democrats and their water carriers and the media use russia's attack on our democracy as a trojan horse for partisan wishlist items that would not actually make our elections and decipher representative krishnamurti believes mcconnell is holding up an election security bill because president trump doesn't support it. This is where i think president trump plays a role. If he wanted this legislation and move forward he would say so. He does not want to randy kenyon washington.

We're free to quit one job and worked for another immediately but what we cannot do is stuff our pockets on the way out the door there was a civil civil suit that was settled between google and uber in which uber agreed to pay google self driving car division now called waymo about two hundred forty five million dollars this thirty-three count criminal indictment each corresponding to an alleged download and each count carrying a maximum sentence of ten years in prison and two hundred fifty thousand dollar fine the f. b. is john bennett. It says trade secrets theft is serious. These are the crown jewels of competence on these are heavily protected so if convicted on all counts levin hausky could face up to three hundred thirty three years in prison and more than eight million dollars in fines. I'm jim roope. The trade war as we learned from joe ramsey isn't stopping costco shoppers offers in shanghai china's. First costco store was so popular on its first day that it had to shut down early because of too many shoppers police were deployed to restore order and manage traffic jams around the store with law enforcement urging people to remain calm videos posted on chinese social media showed thousands of people crowding the aisles of the store in shanghai while signs outside edward incoming shoppers. They may have to wait three hours to park costco announced last month that would open its first store in china. It first entered the country in two thousand fourteen opening an online store. I'm joe ramsey police police in hollywood florida continue to investigate the deaths of twelve elderly residents of nursing home that lost power for days in the midst of hurricane irma in two thousand seventeen corresponding clayton neville says four nursing home employees have been arrested and police now say more arrests are possible a former administrator. His trader for the nursing home and four nurses are facing manslaughter in the heat related deaths of twelve people ranging in age from seventy one to ninety nine years old hollywood police chief chris so bryan says the trained professionals at the nursing home should have been aware of the environmental hazards inside the facility and he says they chose to ignore the pack and tell you they didn't do enough. According to police the air conditioning inside the facility was out for days. O'brien says the investigation still very much ongoing. The hollywood police department remains diligent in in investigating all aspects of his case. Additional arrests are anticipated. The medical examiner has ruled the deaths homicides resulting from heat exposure to environmental higher mental issues according to cheap o'brien. The employees had an obligation to protect the residents. These individuals took an oath to provide care and safety for these individuals in our facility. David trade that oath police major stephen bolger says investigators have evidence to prove that the employees didn't do enough for their patients. The recovery video evidence has proved instrumental in developing our probable cause in this case which i won't speak to the specifics vicks as it is ongoing and i we're not going to try the case here today but we believe that that clearly illustrates that their action or inaction in in nap particular situation did not meet the scope of what was going on to assist those people. It's not known yet how many or win more arrests are expected. I'm clayton neville. Millions of of americans dream about being their own boss. Here's the self-employed stephan kaufman taking a look. A self employment report from accounting software firm fresh books reveals twenty four million americans wanna quit their traditional employment to become their own boss. The firm's chief executive officer mike mcdermott says control as a primary hi mary issue when i work during the day presumably like what i wear to work all the considerations just around control and flexibility in your life. That seems to be a primary. I'm worried driver. Mcdermott says many workers can't see the light at the end of the tunnel for a huge percentage of the working world. It's hard to see why they go in every day and in what the purpose of their company and organization as the ability to earn more however going the way of self employment most certainly brings risks. There's a whole slew of things that if you go from in the working world is self employment that that kind of go away like a a 4._0._1._k. For example and and maybe some benefits so not having that kind of a safety net and some the things the comforts that you get from full-time employment can be daunting for people for those willing and able to take the plunge. There are benefits. The report found seventy percent of those is already self-employed. Enjoy a better work life balance while fifty five percents the experience less stress.

Taylor was quoted in text messaging his record the author will be identified as a senior trump administration official according to the publisher or the author accepted no advance and we'll donate a portion of royalties to nonprofits that focus on accountability the way he has been relentlessly attacked and ninety three percent of the news coverage against him his negative Bob Costantini the White House trump administration official who wrote an anonymous being given a history in our country I would not compare this to a lynching that was unfortunate choice of words that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell though else even by a tiny margin they can impeach the president without due process or fairness or any legal rights all Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here a lynching reaction on American the White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley out to do damage control in a spirited give and take with reporters he has used many words to describe talks about how he learned that everything meaning the military assistance and a desired meeting at the White House by Ukraine's president was contingent on Wlodimierz Alinsky making public state essay about resistance from the inside has a book deal now Joe Ramsey's following the story the book titled Awarding We'll come out November nineteenth more than as a member of the intelligence committee you could hear a pin drop literally as the ambassador laid out his opening taking to twitter President Trump delivered a distraction. The president seems resigned to being impeached based on comments and this tweet he hopes Democrats will take as a warning so some day if a Democrat becomes president and the Republicans when the Fred speculation and trump's own suggestion that the author's identity be investigated hatchet books calling it an unprecedented behind the scenes portrait that offers a shocking firsthand account of president trump just released last month the statement reiterates thought it was quote crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign one phrase used to describe what Taylor Aga believe worse than Saddam Qaddafi an ideological state on the march arena and several variants of radical Islamic terror from Isis to our newsra given was swift especially from Black Democratic House members including James Clyburn of South Carolina Andrew Johnson never would have described what was happening in the him this that and the fact that the US abandoned its Kurdish allies. Were Fighting Isis Senator Ben Cardin S Jeffrey does he agree with the President's action you are fully Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham agrees with Mr Trump's analogy when it's about trump who cares about process long as you get it so yeah this is a lynching in every sense a year after an anonymous essay appeared in the New York Times that said many within the administration were actively blocking some of trump's orders published attempt twenty eighteen no one has named the official despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought a resolution to the Senate floor denouncing Turkey's invasion of northern Syria and prodding president trump to halt his withdrawal of US troops from the region away and certainly Bill Clinton had no that Nixon this president is hopefully an anomaly republicans generally say they wouldn't have used the word Lynn there's a legend Newsday President Trump wanteds Alinsky to clear things up Democrats leading the hearing think one thing is clear there was a quid pro quo Eric's Woolworth's saying now is not the time when thank extremely carefully before we employ the same tools against a democratic NATO Allah that we would against the worst rogue state Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the president's actions effectively unleashed those very rogue states the Kurds were fighting to contain prisoners escaping and can we cannot effectively support our partners on the ground without a military presence McConnell did not include sanctions against Turkey for its aggression against the Kurds.

"Welcome to the hdtv podcast featuring the guys are daring afraid russell now the hdtv podcast welcome to episode nine eighty four. They see tv in home theater. Podcast this is january. Twenty second twenty twenty one friday rounding out almost running out the month a lot of cool stuff to talk about and a lot of cool things from cas that we haven't talked about yet that will bring up towards the end of the show or anything. We should jump into before we just dive straight into the world of home theater and home automation Let's just dive in. Let's do it all right. So you found us via our podcast. We are the h t guys visit. Hd guys dot com for more information about anything. We're going to talk about today. I've talked about on prior episodes. If you're new to this show thank you for joining.

We appreciate that and if you buy the largest one it's a cap pal you get a shout out on the show for a calf pal and we got two of them this week and the first one is from chuck. Happy he says. Thank you for the show. Here's a happy birthday caf pow if you get to more belated birthday calf pows. I will match them. So thank you chuck and brayden mention this. You tweeted happy. Birthday to me and a lot of our listeners had piled on and chuck actually sent to happy birthday capital and Yeah so. I challenge challenge. If i get to more chuck's going to match it so very cool you go. Challenge has been sent out to the to the listener verse yet but we appreciate the support. you guys don't have any idea how much you guys mean to us. Brayden in i We would probably just be talking about this stuff anyway. It was a lot easier when we worked at the same company. So this show gives us a reason to talk at a minimum of once a week so we appreciate it and one other one was from joe. Smith and joe sent us an email So brayden why don't you take the first email all right. I was from joe. So thank you. Joe and chuck for the caf pals for this week and joe says hey guys realize today that i had not at least in a while giving you a monetary thank you. So just in. A cath pal. And i do have a tangent. Home theater related question. It's related to home automation. Like ara apple guy in focused mostly on homekit compatible home automation during christmas. I probably have forty or so. Automated outlets and switches going one thing. I just recently started working on with setting an alarm seen in ho kit. I don't have much alarms. Seems like a waste of money but my iphone does provide reasonably immediate notifications. If someone go if something goes on in that regard. I want to set up this alarm. Seen that allows me to quickly set off an attic. Siren turn on inside and outside lights to notify the crook and my neighbors is cetera. The one aspect that has so far stumped is some ability to have lights. Turn on and off over some short period like fifteen seconds fifteen seconds off a fifty seconds on and then fifteen seconds often repeat the ideas to draw attention to the house so folks know where the sirens going off at least things it Notorious for being hard to locate. This is where i'm thinking. Maybe one of you might have thought since. I thought you've been doing it for longer than me. Having started with x ten years ago. I thought was maybe if If this then that but the back and forth over the internet seems not the ideal way to handle this any thought Or help would be appreciated. All right so ara. I'm sure that you have been stewing on this or or maybe even sent joe a response. But how would you do the toggle kind of on off on on on off thing in this scenario. Well i don't know way to do it. And i thought that was a fantastic idea and there's a few things i think. Apple can improve home kit with one of them. This is tangential to the email. Is it'd be great if you could if you set up a an automation. If you could just copy it and if you can name the automations that would be really nice as well. The reason i'd like to copy it is i have a A thing that says at eleven o'clock turn off the lights. I also wanted to do the same thing at midnight because every once in a while will still be awake and we'll turn on a light or two and then i'd like it to turn off at midnight as well so i run the same Thing but i have to recreate it. And it would have been nice if i could just cut and pasted and said duplicate this now Back to joe wanted. I didn't think of a way. I couldn't think of a way to do it. You can turn the lights on and then say go off a minute but there's no way to turn them back on again and then turn them back off so i don't over to do that Other than some sort of external mechanism that may be You can power cycle your house. I don't know but it'd be nice if somebody who has done this Could let us know. But i really don't think there's a way to do it with homekit. Yes the thing. Is that kind of the old school controllers where you could set up a macro and kickoff in a multi step command that could wait inbetween commands. You know maybe in some server systems you would have been stuck there waiting for that. You couldn't turn it off. It would have been going on and off no matter what. But what was the automation server system that you used to use before you switched over to home kit. It was You know that's a good question. I percents of automation. Indigo was what it was indigo. Right and you could have done that with indigo right. I mean you had more kind of firing at us to actually do the coding itself. Exactly you could set up. When the trigger happened you can say okay. Do this then twenty seconds later do this then so what you could do is is kind of like a turn. Everything on twenty seconds later. Turn everything off so you could kind of put that into a script but you know it's kind of like You know. I'm going to get a little geeky software Thing it's like you do a do loop where you say. How many am i gonna need. Am i going to need ten. Am i to need twenty. And then you know you hard code number and it's never enough so at that point. I don't know that that was still run into limitations because eventually you wanna leave it with on yet or is too many and you can't turn it off because you have no way of exiting the do loop right so wait for it to just cycle all the way. We're so Yeah i it's a great concept joe. I don't think that's the case now. One thing you could do. Maybe there's some way you could buy a strobe and then have it just turn on and then that thing would just strobe You know what. I'm saying brain so you're not actually turning the on just in the emergency case. Maybe put a strobe somewhere on the on the roof or on the house or something and it just strobes and all you have to do is turn it on so that might be a way to go. Yeah and that also. Likewise i mean so. We're saying it would be a cool feature four homekit to allow you to do something like this or or kind of more fine grain automation and scripting but it would also be a cool feature for you. Know the light bulbs or switch companies to be able to go into like strode or you know on off motor flash blink mode and just build that into the lights and the switches themselves to. Oh that's a good idea to so Let's send a couple of emails and see if we can make that happen far off some emails. See what we see. We make make for joe ramsey. Es twenty twenty. Two all right Then we got an email from van longtime listener and he says He sent us a link to something called the eddy. E. t. t. i. e. video doorbell that can measure of visitors temperature and we'll have a link to the article it's over digital trends but this is I guess one of those cova d- kind of things and if somebody comes to your door it'll measure their temperature and let you know on your app whether the person is running a fever or not. I think it's a little excessive in actually van said the same thing. It's a little bit excessive and the article said that if the person's looking directly at the camera it gets very good reading on the person's temperature but in my house the doorbells on the side. So i guess it might have to scan you on your way in and a lot of times what ends up happening is people are facing the door and they kind of reach out with their left hand and just hit the doorbell. They don't necessarily look right at the doorbell. So you would run a risk of not getting a good value anyway but if you are somebody who's really concerned it is something that is available. Yeah that's crazy. I mean we're going to get to where it's almost like mission impossible style. You gotta eat your face up to the doorbell. It'll laser scan you and figure out who you are what your temperature is. What viruses you're carrying But you know get information half for whoever's out the door yes all right. So that's it for email jinping overdo a little bit of news and samsung and google. Classically have been kind of frenemies. I guess they compete in some areas and they get along and others. Samsung has promised to integrate. Smart things with google products in that has finally come to fruition with the official rollout of nest integration to begin users can simply add their nest device in this mart things app which makes sense but yeah google and samsung or samsung starting to play a little bit nicer with google products in the smart things ecosystem right and then we have an article from Somebody his name is jeffrey morrison and he is saying that micro. Led's tv's are gonna go up against the rep. He'd reputation of lead comparing the light. Quality and displays scale ability micro led taps small individual led's for ideal brightness without being susceptible to burn in giving it a solid chance of becoming a leader in the tv market. It's possible were now. In the early days of micro led it's technology that holds a lot of promise in both picture quality screen size and a myriad of other uses. But it's not without its issues. He and price stumbling blocks but engineers love challenge. The fact that you can get you can get one for a hundred and fifty thousand dollars. You know that's the that's where we are right now It says a lot as could this replace lcd. Tv's many homes. He says maybe could give all at a run for the money possibly will replace projectors could be and He said it's an interesting technology. So this you know he. Totally caveat added the whole thing super definitive there at the right. Here's my thinking. I'm going to say yes. I'm not gonna question it. I think this technology will mature. It will get better. And i love the concept of pudding Panels together if they can come up with a technique that allows you to put panels together. Kind of like does not lagos those things on the floor. That are that look like puzzle pieces Like in workout rooms. The sponge kind of thing But that would be tile exactly but do that on the wall if you can put it together and build what you want out of the panels. That could be a game changer. I could see where they would all come with the same kind of head unit and all you do. is you. Assemble the panels and you somehow have to indicate what number they are or it just automatically finds outwards orientation is and in it sets up a tv. And you're good to go. No more projector required. I kind of see that being the future. I also see them just building you know. Eighty five inch micro. Led panels without you having to do the assembly and So i'm gonna say yes. It will replace leads and projectors in the future. Yeah i mean. I think could give a run for its money possibly will replace projectors could be so yeah i'm gonna go with the author i don't know i think it's a it's a very promising technology and i think that it has the absolute a potential to get rid of led's as we know them right and replaced the the light source essentially for how we could currently consider led's easy for me to say but They've got the price has to come down significantly a for it to really give oletta rampers money alright and net flicks shuffle play feature will roll out to all users worldwide this year. In the streamers q four twenty twenty earnings net flicks noted the product development only briefly. It referred broadly to a of new features that gives members the ability to choose to watch a title chosen just for them versus browse. It also noted the feature would reach all users worldwide sometime in the first half of twenty twenty. one shuffle. Play puts a big button. Right on the netflix. Home screen beneath your profile icon when you click it. Net flicks randomly plays content. It's personalization algorithms. Thinks you'll like this could include a movie. You're currently watching something you've saved to your watchlist or a title. That similar is something you've already watched for example And this is I guess to help people who just instant endlessly search through netflix's trying to find content is just give me something to watch button. Sounds kind of cool. I think i'd actually ended up using it quite a bit. It's funny that you say that. Because when i tagged this article i was thinking. Is this a feature that anybody needs So interesting you sometimes. Have you know when you have too many things to choose. You can make never make a decision. Yeah i mean. I ended up just kind of going through the list and go and that could be cool but i don't know it could be really lame. I don't wanna try it and then i go onto something else something else just kind of if i just said you know what. Just show me something. I'll at least fifteen twenty minutes of it if it's good i'll keep going if his lame than i. I can skip it and come back out but Yeah i do get stuck in that constant endless scroll through netflix's for for endless amount of time. Sometimes though here's what i see happening. Think about this when you have a music service and you pick a A song Genre country right whatever and hit play and then you don't like it so you skip to the next one. You don't like it. You skip to the next this one and you listen to it. I think you're gonna do the same thing braid and like you said i'll give it fifteen minutes and then you're going to move onto the next one i guarantee you and then you're gonna find out that this is pointless they just need to make that easy though right kind make it where you have a thumbs up thumbs down and then skip to the next content right you can start building your own customized. Well okay very good and then ma- maybe it'll work. I don't know all right so this week. We mentioned this last week. We're gonna talk about the best of cas and we're looking at lists from in gadget digital trends a scene at the organization that puts on cas every year. They're innovation awards will go through the list. If it's something we talked about last week. We're just going to mention what it is and move on to the next item. If that's something that we didn't talk about then we'll we'll give you a little blurb about that the first up is in gadget. And that's their best of cis twenty twenty one finalist. We will have links to the entire list. So there's more than what's on here. We just picked out the stuff that was home theater or smart home automation. A type of thing related I was the samsung bought handy in. This was the robot that Gives you hand and helps you do things and brandon. I think we decided that if it can clean our bathrooms were down with this thing. Yeah i can't wait till it has two arms right. Because i don't know if you haven't had a chance to watch the video go find the video. It's kinda cool watching it do dishes and things but if it had to arms it would be like rosie the robot and yeah if you can clean the bathroom especially huge fan. And the the bought handy does show up on a few lists Next item on this list is the tcl wearable display. We didn't talk about this. This is interesting. And essentially it has to full. Hd led screens that create one hundred forty degree field of view. And that's it. It looks like a pair of sunglasses. But it's a monitor that or a pair of monitors that you wear like sunglasses There's no battery on board. There's no arms or anything chunky in it. For processors you just connect it to your phone or laptop via usb c. which provides power and media to the glasses and then you have a monitor this just kind of sitting on your face interesting idea. What do you think about like we're in. This may be in a plane or something. You can't see through it. It's not like it's a heads up display. It's just a monitor hooked onto your face. Yeah you know. I like it and it's like you were saying it just the regular size glasses. And because all the smarts are not necessarily the the glasses don't have to do anything more than just project the image. It's through this usb c. I mean there's a small little processor in there. But i think that's a great concept and i might actually buy it if it wasn't that expensive because it's not as bulky weird looking kind of thing. Yeah no i think it's actually pretty cool for like sitting in bed watching movies instead of watching it on the ipad. You just put these glasses on and in actually seems like it'd be pretty cool. I like it. I like the idea and the other thing i i was thinking they could probably go a little bit further if they can make it work with the bluetooth or something. Could you imagine a having glasses. Not not So you could see through but project information from your car like a heads up display but no matter where you look the information's there so speed gas fuel everything so you never have to look down of like a pilot Like a fighter pilot with the wherever they look all that information goes with them because it's on their helmet not just projected in front of them. So i think that could be the next level but tcl showing some chops there. Every never roku built an accident expert. John had roku built all right. So then there's the aaron a-3 and it's a headphones and the eighth three are shaped like little disks within ovals slightly sticking out of one side not only are they much more discreet than standard earbuds. But they have a no left or right designation you can freely swap them between ears the open design. Lets you listen to tunes while also allowing you to hear what's going on around you. Although they don't have active noise cancellation the eighty three includes wind. Noise reduction algorithms to improve the listening experience. And i think What we're seeing is a lot more people putting efforts into these Wireless in ear type of. I'm really looking forward to the day when we get some jack. Bauer type stuff and with good audio quality. That would be cool because then nobody will know what's going on in the you'll be able to Listen to music while you're at costco and not necessarily Fuel rude when checking out. You know like we were talking about last week. I think that's really cool thing. Yeah for sure All right and then the engaged also tagged sony's three sixty reality audio speakers. The srs are a five thousand and the srs are a three thousand. Their wi fi connected wireless units that work in a similar fashion to so nose and they they use a sony format called the three sixty reality audio format but if the music you're listening to isn't in that format. The speakers are equipped with an algorithm that converts the content and i guess the format Is supposed to give you a more immersive audio experience from kind of the smaller sonos speaker. you know a single speaker in one room to give you an immersive audio experience But you can connect them together to make a multi room as well Funky looking device already. And then i'll just finish out the list from From gadget is the tcl alto are one soundbar that we talked about so And gadget was very impressed with that. Also the samsung jet bought ninety. Ai plus we talked about that. I think that's the thing the sell vacuum that identifies. What's in front of you and decides how to clean it up. And then their best tv products is the lg see. One ole led the tcl six series eight k the samsung neo q. Lead and the sony cognitive processor x are so Good lists there. And i think we talked about most of those just the The three sixty reality audio speakers of the wearable display and the ear inn. A-3 headphones were new. Yeah and they have a bunch of items from other categories sorta outside of what we focus on on the show. If you want to read more we have a link to the full en- gadget article at the website as well So then jumping over and taking a look at digital trends digital trends. Had an article called the fifteen coolest gadgets. Twenty twenty one and again. We'll have a link to that full fifteen list at the website if you want to check it out h. e. dot com but we grabbed a few that we thought were interesting. And the first being the lg transparent. Smart bed tv. and i. i read that. I didn't notice tv on it. And i thought it was the lg transparent. Smart bed no idea what that meant but imagine waking up in the morning given little stretch in a yawn and then activating a fifty five inch report level transparent screen. That rolls up from the bottom of your bed and displays the day's weather traffic news and social media streams so this is a kind of a combination of the few of a few of the different uses of old lead that we've heard is his transparent and flexible I don't necessarily think it has to be built into the edge of your bed. But i guess maybe that's because transparent you want to be able to see through it but a very very cool use of ola technology to give transparent and flexible in a single screen Do this is. this is red. This does feel like sci fi technology. Yeah and that is part of the. Lg coming up without rollable Technology and i. I don't know that i need it. I i know it is kinda cool but Is one of those things a of times. These things are concepts and they just kinda wanna show what they can do like wouldn't in the auto industry when they would have those concept cars. It never saw the light of day but the technology went into something. And i think the roll up The oleg kind of thing here is that you'll be able to roll up phones in that kind of stuff i i. I think there's some cool stuff coming. Yeah and i think the role up screens even at the end of the bed is a cool interesting way to do it. If these eighty five inch in you could roll them out of the ceiling. Like a rolling down a screen I think that could be cool. The transparent maybe doesn't have as many uses in the home But the roll up certainly for sure And then they had two more items on the list. Samsung's micro led. Tv's which we've talked about in a pretty stoked about and then samsung's jet. Bought ninety is more of the samsung robots technology. Making the list are then. We'll go over to the scene at best of c. s. twenty twenty one The lg transparent. Ola display concept We talked about The tcl tv's expand eighty five inches and eight k so tcl getting a little bit of love from c. net. And then i saw this here alarm dot com touchless video doorbell and that's kind of interesting so instead of pushing a button new doorbell from alarm dot com uses a door map and a i to detect when someone has arrived at your doorstep and it lets you talk through the app with a built in camera and microphone. It's a touch the system in the age of corona victories I don't know that. That's that necessary. Because i think you can do it with just the sensors i mean i get a notification and a sound In my house when somebody just comes up to the door. And then i kinda wait to see. Is the doorbell gonna ring or was it. Somebody just dropping off a flyer so a lot of this technology is already there. And i guess the concept here is if they're stepping on your doormat than they're expecting You know they're going to ring the door. But i don't know the way. My house is bright. Most people don't even step on my doormat except for when they walk into the house. Yeah i don't have a doormat. But i kind of agree with you. This sort of feels like a product. That's trying to take advantage of corona virus. Paranoia in may be isn't isn't necessarily needed. Yeah totally agree. And then the finish out seen at The samsung robot butler bought handy of the colour touchless toilet and the Samsung jet bought ninety. Ai so a lot of the seen digital trends and en- gadget all like the samsung jet bought and Maybe we're just gonna have to get that. I think and definitely the the bought handy. We gotta get that a. Yeah at least one of each rights we can test a mountain and as for the show all right and then jumping over to the actual. Cas twenty twenty one official innovation awards and again. We'll have the link to the full list at the website but the ones that we felt were of interest The one more color buds true wireless headphones a colorful dynamic true wireless earbuds that is designed not only to match your style but also match your everyday needs the color. Buds bring artistry to sound create a fashionable colorful. Hi fi true wireless product that was designed with ultra lightweight compact easy. It's a compact case making it. The ultimate sound accessory the newest onboard bluetooth chipset enables mirroring mode which is better than the standard master. Slave format increases the antenna efficiency while solving issues of highlight and see four. Brilliant colors mean. There's one for everyone style or look. And i think the big deal here is that Like you were saying. Are you know once we can get these to where their jack bauer style and no one can see them than it won't matter but until that point you know. Is it something you have all the time that you walk on the grocery store in and should it be a fashion statement and match your your style an aesthetic. That's what the color buds will give you all right then. In the area of high end audio is the mark levinson number Fifty two zero six precision pre amplifier. Now this nine thousand dollars. So it's very high and Blends the finest materials technology and artisanship for exceptional beauty and performance with To fully discrete dual manorial unified class a unified line stage at which was Has been awarded to patents and a class a headphone output and the hybrid gain typology Let's see it's got the m. and m.'s. An mc fono stage outstanding digital audio capability with a s peed if a synchronous be inputs ver for high resolution playback up to thirty two bit Three hundred eighty four kilohertz and a st up to eleven point. Two megahertz m qa full decode and bluetooth with app dex hd extensive control options with ethernet usb thirty two. I are input and a twelve point. Twelve volt vig trigger. includes custom aluminum remote and The mark levinson five k. Or five control app. So you got a lot just to amplify your music but if you really into music. I mean really in music. This is one to take a look at it. Won the Best of cs innovation awards. And then maybe a little bit less expensive the lg sin abeam laser four k. This is the lg hugh eight. Ten p is a home cinema. Four k ultra high def laser projector that delivers premium picture quality regardless of viewing environment and lighting conditions while offering easy installation and the best part about. This projector is that it's only twenty seven hundred dollars which is a great deal and i don't know what the weight and read a few reviews on it but premium picture quality regardless of viewing environment and lighting conditions is a pretty tall order to live up to now. I don't know how you would pronounce us. It's ex g. I m i s so that are s premium. Four k home theater It's a three. Led projector that provides unparalleled a two thousand and lumine and a three hundred inch giant screen and intelligent Ex g. I m i I n you. I in a very portable size built in a two eighty five watt harmon cardon speakers producing credible sound the advanced projection adjustment technology assures the easiest setup and creates the best user experience. So yeah. That looks actually pretty cool it. It's it's It looks like an old school phonograph. the look of it but obviously it's a it's a projector but Be i have no pricing on it. It'd be kind of interesting to see what this thing looks like. Yeah all right. And i guess i am the l. guy for today the next one on the cbs twenty twenty one innovation awards is the l. g. e. the q p five in. It's what they call an innovative three point. One point two channel speaker system designed for customers craving three dimensional audio quality without the traditional soundbar design. The compact speaker with up firing drivers supports dolby. Atmos as well as dds for more immersive audio experiences the speaker even comes with a new low vibration sub woofer that offers an impressively booming sound. That will not annoy. The neighbours doesn't have any pricing but it is almost like a soundbar but it's kind of tiny I don't know maybe more like a bluetooth speaker. Almost they say it's a eleven point seven inches wide two inches tall So maybe it doesn't quite have the aesthetic of a soundbar but it should it sits and lives in the same spot that a sound soundbar would live in all right moving over to smart home. We have the usa the security camera. The cam to pro- The youth camp to pro goes for about three hundred twenty dollars and it's Securities most advanced battery camera security system to date. The system boasts two k resolution. Three hundred and sixty five days of battery life local storage. It's got the homekit support and an on device. Ai for smart and accurate detection plus It has advanced features including ip sixty seven one waterproof rating two way audio and clear. Night vision now That sounds very impressive. The three hundred sixty five day battery. Life is something that i would question They do have This product is bit available or at least maybe it's predecessor was and they were boasting that type of battery life but The reviews i was reading. Said it didn't get anywhere near that and but still even if it was Half that that's still pretty good. Yes half that is is not bad at all And then next one on the list is another. Up product it's their security smart lock touch and wi fi. The up security smart lock features three fingerprint recognition built in wi fi for remote control. And oh the up cam you just talked about. Had three hundred sixty five days battery life. This smart lock has one year. Battery life I would have that more because it's not like the The door lock is being used all the time. I have a battery operated door lock. Did that lasts a long time. So that i would believe okay And then sixty five weather proofing. The smart lot can unlock within. Just one point three seconds with a single touch of a finger. It's one of the safest most convenient and most reliable fingerprint. Networks smart door locks that supports fingerprint recognition digital buttons bluetooth wifi remote control and physical keys for five ways to unlock. That's a that's pretty cool in the fingerprint. I think thing. I think is is pretty bad too. You could just get everyone that lives at your house fingerprinted and then. No one needs keys anymore. Yeah i liked that and one point three seconds. That's about how long it takes you to put a key in there and turn actually faster if you've got to dig the key and That would be the only improvement. I would want on my door lock because now you gotta you know punch the light the punch in the code and this makes it a little bit easier and then Staying in the smart home area. The arlo essential indoor camera. It goes for about one hundred and thirty dollars in. It's a smart indoor security solution that all offers ultimate privacy insecure indoor monitoring the versatile camera enables users to monitor babies pets elderly family members and more in the home featuring an easy to control. Automated privacy shield. The camera gets families the decision on what they want the device whether they wanted device on her off Resulting in unparalleled peace of mind. The essential indoor camera boasts ten eighty p video on one hundred and thirty degree diagonal field of view motion and audio detection and a two way audio. A broad platform compatibility with google assistant amazon Aleady and If this then that enables easy integration and automation and control all right and while the alarm dot com touchless video doorbell made the list for c net. The senior official list grabbed the arlo touchless video doorbell. The arlo touchless. Video doorbell is a proximity. Sensing front door monitoring security solution designed to alert users on visitors approach before they rang. The doorbell the tusla's video doorbell provides industry-leading very field of view for an expansive and precise front porch picture users can see visitors from head to toe and packages on the doorstep. Thanks two hundred. Eighty degree viewing angle optimized one to one aspect ratio full hd video quality enabling vivid details direct to mobile sip calls. Clear two way audio and prerecorded. Quick reply messages enabled convenient in the moment. Communication with the touchless. Video doorbell connects directly to wi fi and is hardwired for power So this is essentially the touchless doorbell. They're just marketing. It at think are as touchless Because most of them do this already where you can set up a proximity sensor and alert you when someone's walking up to the door. I didn't see anything other than the fact that it's kind of optimized for one hundred eighty degree head to toe viewing and some other things that are cool anything that really sets us apart as a specifically touchless video doorbell but more more corona virus paranoia exactly because My ring doorbell does the exact same thing so i i don't know how important that end by the way if you are a little bit paranoid about the pressing doorbell you can Do what i've done. You could use your elbow you can Grab like the bottom of your shirt and put your finger behind that and precedent that way. There's a lot of things you can do. So i don't know that This is a problem that needs solving the one feature. This one that i thought was pretty. Cool is the The prerecorded Messages that you can play back for visitors and you can have like the home alone sort of. I don't know if you can have the home alone. Sorta soundboard there. That when someone's talking to you can just pick what answer you wanna give them. You just leave the the package at the porch animal. Yeah that could be. It could be fun. Could be all right. So moving over to Tv's the First one on the list is the lg sixty five inch. Ed four k. The model is the sixty five g. One that's one of their signature lines there and his featuring the a nine gen for ai. Processor the delivers incredible picture and sound quality for the most immersive viewing in the home entertainment experiences. And i believe most people will tell you that the lg ola is probably one of the finest picked up on tv available today. And i know ratings dot com Thinks that as well. And i've been very impressed with it But again it's not the only tv out there that will make you happy but is probably the best picture quality yep and the managed to get two their. Tv's on the list with that. Best picture quality the second one being there. Eighty three inch led four k. That's the model eighty three c one. They say it's the latest lead. Tv by lg is packed with advanced features such as fast speeds for less input lag. Four k h f our technology which makes playing games and watching sports incredibly enjoyable so too l. g. o. Leads on the list. Well we have to have samsung to. And there's the samsung eighty five inch accu- and nine hundred a. It's a mini. Led tv and it uses the new advancements in samsung's image processing to deliver Picture quality creating the perfect showcase for professional photographers designers artists or anyone who wants an outstanding visual experience and samsung gets two. Tv's on the list as well. The second being there eighty eight inch micro led. Tv samsung has pioneered modular micro led technology paving the way for the next generation of stunning displays and their new eight inch micro led. Tv takes that outstanding picture quality even further using active matrix led technology to create a wider range of brightness perfect black levels without reflection or light leakage in zero blur or delay. And i mean they're expensive right now but yeah i mean micro. Led possibly may be could even be one of the next technologies that could be a potential almost rival for potentially lead. I think potentially and the it and might even perhaps there's a chance it might replace projectors. Maybe perhaps navy all right so on on this list. Is there anything that you want to have a. that's attainable obviously the the The bought handy. That's not attainable. So on this list as or anything that you would really wanna get a hold of. So i think the the one that stands out is the tcl wearable Sunglasses monitor. Because i i could see myself. You know. just hanging out sitting on the couch or sitting on the bed watching movies on that quite often And if you said that. I can't get the the bought to do the dishes for me and i think i'm just gonna end up with the wearable display. What about you. So i'm looking at the ear in a three those headphones for me. I'm like a wireless headphone junkie. I wanna try those out. I wanna see how comfortable they are. And i want. I like the fact that you can swap them between left and right Somehow or another must figure out which ones in which ear and So i like that. And then the other thing is Not specifically any of these vices. But the you. Up stuff. I'm a big fan of youth. E i will not buy another camera unless it's a up. And i'm actually even thinking about swapping out my lock for this This youth e smart. Lock just for that finger The scanning the finger. I really liked that. And i might actually get rid of my schley jr lock for that. So because you are a wireless earbuds junkie. I'm checking out the one more color buds for you. In case you wanna accessorize with with fashionable color choices and you gotta move fast midnight. Black twilight gold and spearmint. Green are all sold out. The only one currently left is secure. Pink what are they. What are they going for Trying to their nine bucks nine. Oh that's not a bad price. Now are those the current ones that day announced or they possible they were already. It's possible that they have like an updated version. This i'm not sure But and so maybe yes. Maybe when the new version comes out they'll replace the ones that are currently sold out new colors. I don't know yeah turns out they. I just went to their website. While we're talking. They have a whole bunch of headphones Som- shrek at finds something in here but You know what between headphones and bottles of bourbon my wife his told me it's gotta stop so he can slow it down. Slow it down. So i let us know if there's anything that you thought you must have and Are you gonna get the mark. Levinson pre amplifier. Let us know but also the Lg sin abeam laser. Four k projector daleks pretty cool too. Even though i'm very happy with my optima. I kinda liked this Ultra short throw away. Women is that of ultra short throw. Yeah it's ultra none of that's you hd. I don't think this is ultra short. Never mind i don't think it is. Yeah i'm excited about The ultra short. Throw projectors have. This one is definitely not and the. I'm less excited about it as we speak now. I just lost his. Yeah because i mean for those who are doing a traditional front projection system. And you know maybe you worried about or you wanna put it in your worried about ambient light issues. Supposedly this one with the laser Light source gets you that so it'd be something i'd be interested in reading some reviews on it. Yeah but you know what. I go back and forth but brayden seriously my Ultra short throw. Projector is about the size of a Subway of us are a center channel on the width in the depth. Of like maybe to Two speakers and it it. I can project a hundred screen so easily and the picture looks great even in daytime. I just keep thinking you know what it's easier to get one of these in salt than actually hall in a a big eighty five inch. Tv yeah that's true. Have you seen this one when you came over. I can't remember if i've had a because he hasn't been in the house for for a long time I don't think i've been over since he had that one. Yeah next time you come over you ought to check it out. I might actually convince you to go. The ultra short. Throw route twice next time on. Yes so let us know what you guys are interested in and Citizen email and we'll talk about it and upcoming shows all right and that's it for today. Thank you for listening.

I'm Joe Ramsey Mall and today we're talking about how you can get that holiday vibe without leaving fantastic as speak right now we're wearing shorts and t shirts and it's practically midnight sitting in the dark. It's boiling outside heat wave number thirty but we talk the temperatures going up and up this week. It's going to be able to thirty degrees again. It's really the perfect time to enjoy Switzerland to get to know a few places where you can kind of create the feeling of going on holiday but without going too far from great so we actually explored some of the locations at the Swiss had to when they need a steak Haitian staycationing cool name. Is that the official name of staying at home basically very good. It's what we say when you have a vacation but you stay. Is it not at home ball conification but I was amazed to hear that you also have a word for vacation ball Cornyn and can you explain that please bile communication. It's just about Cornyn on the Balkan though holiday on your balcony yeah like it Geico but before we get into this some holiday today at home business we something pretty exciting happened last week. Yes we did indeed and we meet some of our listeners well. Some are probably not our lesser our listeners but some others are just members of our facebook a group which is called Switzerland for English speakers and we add our second meet up and yeah few came and that was really cool time yeah that was kind of a steak ation feeling because it was really hot we had super nice drinks outside assignment later nice people yeah so in case you are living in Switzerland or your want to come to Switzerland or your plan to come then join our facebook group Switzerland for English speakers and we try to make the meet up more often than the future and obviously if you are not living in Ben or you're not around Ben you can also create your meet up wherever you are for wherever you don't really need us for that well I mean that's body without us but you can try. <hes> yeah true to let us know how it goes back to the summer topic. If staying home this summer headed off somewhere or maybe you even just have a couple of peaks between exotic holidays. Yeah I mean it's like the thing for all Swiss families. I guess it's for families all over the world so during the school holidays they plan to go somewhere and usually that spring summer or autumn and yet for most it will be summer so but some families may be don't want to go in summer because there's lots of crowds or they can't really afford it because it's the most expensive time to go so order just don't want to or they want to stay at home. They make Swiss holidays. I think there is lots of things to do so yeah totally yeah no reason to go. No I mean why would you go somewhere else when you already in Switzerland Yeah. I think anyhow especially if the weather is much better isn't it so yeah exactly thank you climate change but seriously what's the kind of normal weather for a Swiss summer because if you if it's your first summer in Switzerland let's learn you might be thinking crikey this place to be all summer depends where we live really so. It's very much divided. I mean we had a we had already an episode about the weather so you better check that out to have more details but basically let's just put it in band and somewhere in Ben it might be something like twenty seven degrees on average in the summer summer months and a few times a year between I would say from the top of my head. Maybe between four four and ten times it will be more than thirty degrees as big. It became much more recently in the recent years like everywhere I guess yeah it's only <hes> it's warm and quite dry but the higher up you go the cooler it will be and closer to the mountains you go the more often it will you will have storms rain in the evening thunderstorms right God. Did you have previous career as a weatherman. Nobody I think everyone in Switzerland knows that especially especially if you grew up in the mountains you know that for example if you go hiking or even flying climbing than I was taught that in climbing the B. is now so it's not climbing for every whisper. Rush limbaugh listening claiming tip for the Secret Swiss who are listening into this gypsum anyway so if you grew up there and you go maybe climbing so you must know that the weather can change inch really quickly and the mountains and especially in the evening soda clouds build very quickly and it starts rain and can have pretty bats under storms or strong rains okay good. I might not not not worry so take a rain jacket walkie-talkie going that way. No obviously if you go climbing you should know about this a little bit or you. Take someone with you. Who knows it definitely yeah yeah otherwise it's just if you go higher up Johnson but more likely that it rains once in a while and evening yeah and also it's getting too hot for you this week? Place to go is up. You can even find snow in Switzerland this time of year if you are looking for exactly uh-huh and by the way is called a summer catheter who Asama stone exactly Nice I can't so we asked that quite often yeah hot date and in the evening which brings us to our next point the kind of activities that Swiss people normally doing over the summer I mean we mentioned a few that I try and I try to sit at to bring in claiming a little bit about climbing that some go hiking yeah useful I will say claiming isn't won't populace go climbing in the summer than in the winter. Just what does it just depend how much of a challenge you like or is it really just a summer thing. Oh it's basically a summer thing. I've never been climbing in winter. You go more on Ski Ski tours or you go ice climbing. No thank you okay so for the people who prefer slightly safe `activity I would suggest hiking tons of that to be done. Maybe we even need Ho of episode Viking just walking swimming pool exactly and read swimming in lakes rivers. I think that is the big summer activity because you can do it for free. Hollow Free Everywhere you can't lakes rivers. I and how are they called. Brooks Mountain rivers yeah mountain streams burkes yeah so also if you go higher up and you see some kind of water thing you can swim everywhere. It's everywhere clean. Gene jumping except maybe it's a pond and smelly. Oh that's dangerous thing ahead like what like to fall river sharks. They don't have them or some kind of like scary grill with a strong current watch out true. I mean don't jump in a river that is very strong. I mean I just thought we should be safety. Conscious here. That's true yeah. The other thing you can do all over Switzerland is gay barbecuing. They have a public grill setup so you can let you bring your own sausage. You might not even need some kind of file lighting device. Whack it on the grill. Yep Bob's your uncle true in your queen or your uncle your aunt exactly that's another topic for the secret Swiss deafening very good. Yes the other thing of course I've just happening in some story but for the grilling yeah I must add something so if you go up into the mountains <hes> I think we also mentioned that someone but just it was the Swiss picnic EPA exactly one of our early ones if you find it on Swiss and chips dot com just search for it and hopefully you'll find it anyway so if you go hiking and you walk maybe along stream someone than there are stones and stuff so you can also make a campfire and Grille your a settler. That's a big thing to do to make your own fire just somewhere exactly but yeah obviously have a look when it's not too dry on you know exactly I think I got a weather warning today from the <hes> <hes> metro sweet yeah for medicine saying you know what John It's a very very commendable and U._C.. Some mornings they're exactly because if you are cool making a fire somewhere whether it's a fire ban because it's extremely dry you could get fine and they can you find you because of the small they will find cracks. This is turning into a dangerous episode. Isn't it so the other thing that happens. If you're not into the great outdoors I think kind of cafe culture really comes alive in the summer and you totally totally night to set once the warm evening star there are tons of like cafes and Chazan tables outside people having drinks and evening it completely changes the face of a city. I think that's totally true. I think the one thing is the weather and the other thing is also. So in summer days are much longer so it's quite it's bright for quite a long time so it's now it's it's soon nine and it's still very bright so although the longest days already one month past still oh very bright or very late in the evening and still bright so people stay outside longer and try to meet friends yeah why not I mean once you've done kind of all the things around where you we live in a Swiss city. You know you've been in your local river your local Lake you've been to Lecco cafes and so on the swimming pool I think almost every small village and so on they have like public pools apple is just so if you don't have a river or a lake you go there yeah title and hiking. What else do we say yeah? That's the stuff to do. That's the stuff I mean already miserable. You kind of stay inside and watch T._v.. You know no one's GonNa stop you just saying so we've been checking out a few of the places that are not too far away from burn where Switzer quite typically going for a holiday as well <hes> yeah some some go on holiday there but I think the usual holiday for Swiss if they make holidays in in Switzerland is they go through some kind of river they go to to the Tahseen or they go to lake whatsoever. I haven't been to that one which will like it's just north of one particular place. We went to a really good one. One particular place that we went to was L. about it. Now I can only think about people who listen the like. Oh no no googling lake. How'd you spell that in Swiss German VAT so is that a w of the anyway we went to yeah? It was really nice. That's a nice place. It's not so well known I well. It is but I never heard of it until we went there yet. It's not a tourist place exactly what you have to research but it's not like highly popular I think Swiss people in the content Banda probably and it's quite small place and it's about forty kilometers away from Ben Yep and it's between in between the two lakes and between the lake and Lake Nasha. A family and what it was quite nice was as you said there aren't many tourists there as it's a really lovely kind of setting on the Laker sweet little village unlike tiny nice little shops but it kind of really struck me that once a lot of people that but you can rent stand up paddle boards for example of this nice boats going around just like a very peaceful nice quiet place and you can even come there as well. I have nothing to aren't oh it is highly recommended by this and so on yeah and the other places places Estevan low lack Estevao year. That's my friend Jackson's beyond very good. Thank you but this is politically correct. Just yes asking you have to do the accent when you're speaking long already so it's a nice place more about it. It's a medieval town with a castle. Yes and it's on a lake. Yes love it and if I don't have anything to US and folk museum yeah well. Is that really yes Azeri at least four amazing reason really weird but yeah yeah you don't have to go exciting. is they. Have a water the ski lift yes that was basically mind blown. When we saw that was weird? It's like a st left on water skis and it goes in a massive kind of rectangle circle. Some kind of shape were jumps unlike jumps yeah both to jump jump and you can either go on the skis or on the whiteboard yeah and it just drags you around the whole circuit basically amazing if you've never seen as I could check that out really and it okay turns out if you fall off on the far and they will bring you back so don't worry with the little fellow by but you might have to wait now exactly yeah it's safer yeah. It's cool and like I said I think if you rent a car for example for a day or you go by train. It's always always necessary to bring your swimming stuff everywhere. He can dip and quickly especially if it's so hot like it is now and yeah autumn will come soon enough and then you can do other things like watch netflix afflicts. No don't say make yeah yeah if you have a suggestions about really cool some dangers particularly ones that you think are a little bit unknown. Please share them with inaugurates. Listen English because we do love to know about them. We won't tell anyone else we sweat or if you have any questions also about Switzerland or this particular topic also let us know and our facebook group or go to our website right in email.

Fish on. vk. Fifteen. We had the first one in the northwest. And I started to get to know Olivier's that were in the northwest and connected with the through. A brilliant little group cold at North Sti. Okay as it was an. It'll be now rely. A couple of the night isn't just introduced a slowly bits and pieces of saying or call it a bit extra. I haven't got time Jim. Could you do this not is skillset sat. Slowly started, introduce our in of of Associated Ole and then through the conference. will be to grow that network. Associates so. Able really the majority of the people at A. Conference or met down. We've met through the able and Maassen different elements by me going out and growing reputation. It's attack. Teach more the ice constantly inside I. Believe you do this unbelievably tight on socio. That's I mean we have a client. Has. week on source, indirect way, or we have a list of preferred associated would eventually. Be Out that and having a little bit of work here matchday our. Associates, our seed s skillset. Season tried to build a relationship with them. and kind of grow that. Try comes we call it now. A tribe of assumes as a was kind of skills. Do you look for what's if I'm not severe? But if I wasn't via and I came to the United States John. Looks knee. What would you say today? What did you look for from me to that? So, we at all, all of the basic things bill actual the. Ola Basic questions on Kayaks. Year registered insurance. While kind of work if you don't before, can you share some some examples of what Especially this? You know, maybe more intricate like transcription. Will look at that social media will at. Hand while that ethics. Armenian and how how they shed his relationship me. Items client associated real. and. Do you believe that actually been foundation of anything that we do because it's really difficult to work with somebody else? Somebody else on a client level as well so transit may up. Without Saints Railay. So he start specific I mean we have soon round the request from clients. We've recently sold on copy measurements for applying. That's a website, so we have a to the as long via in student desktop. All. The item at least going to copy. Somebody else actually going out in. Corona Miles obviously measuring physically measuring albums and Impulse Oldham so? We have to. We have to kind of get a loan. To be on the same wavelength as maiden. We have I don't tend to work with. A law associates that wrong. Side my area. Intentional is literally just because I think he's really because I in the northwest the conference, so they get to know me. You get to know Bannon that our say on, we got along to. Know relationship and I do see them as the my team. Because ultimately, that's what that is why. Sharon is my Brown's the they are a crucial off at Aloma. Team Yeah. Jerry Jones. Jumping enough John Anything. But. Why was just saying you know? Do you. Shouldn't go through any princess of of assessment we do. Saying I know you said that you check. that. compliance that I see in. Any sort of assessment or puny. Meeting Them in before you've got what would you give it to you? Marquis foreign associates as a piece of what? We do. We have listed ones when we continue four. Ladies that we use on the all ladies at the moment. That we use hop on sold the before, right. Obey the list. And I do a lot mentor -I with the Isis while on a on a founded. On programs that can provide folding through. Getty don't sessions and we're going to be doing lots of things, so so there's an element of have come along and be a part of that. So right look like! Say Us what you know what we know, read you. Know that quite a few days do do now, and that is a way, but I think for me. It's more important. Never really have an issue with anybody has Coil and because you do that. And Eastern easy for me to go back inside. I look at and you know. Didn't quite know it. Longer role. An majority while all of my associates have access to clients, so the old wants one relationship. We've done as well and. I haven't had any problems with the IDA and so I make the client. that. We have associates and he won't always be a because. I can't say I'm not an expert in a sale your. Relationship Building. So I made sure the client knows on the plan of access to the ever seen not to cope through eighth. Announced the south, so we make sure that that whole agnes is a relationship I'm. Sorry. Gone Your European you? Certainly established contract process your say she says well. You know with you so the saying about touch Louis. You've not had any problems between the associated and the client. You have processes to manage all of that. That's I. Have Not and my don't works alongside me as while. She some that Braille Hav of the access mine via when I need well, and she's gone through the whole process long. Calls to find out what they like doing WADA's skills while. These dual those compliance checks. Some then there's always is is never just always me. There is a very close T.. MOBILE'S THE IN A. Social someone that with logging barrel, aw, EDP, a team and veterinary old may as well yeah that that's that's sweat similarly with my associate trainers. To the training surgery. I would usually what with traders who I knew? We will associates of other companies so I knew them from bad. I knew that we all trained in the same way. We'll Sivina style and that was very important, was very very keen, had the relationship with con? Because as you say, you just come, be the one that filters everything you inbox would. Never. Under Control Evan would would get lost now. Notice your trainer as well argue with this with the SBA virtual assistance. and. As a train up being accreditation, having accreditation, giving is really important. Why do you feel as this really important to have an accreditation Go through that process. policies sticky. She won't seek week. It is really because even though I am. Credited with society, which was distance all training side I'm not. I'm not a Mossy. One for thinking at the has to be accredited. Because I because I feel that. An probably contradicting myself with being. Able I feel that as a kind of it's a long route. You're accredited by somebody. That may take that. You run a business different way than they should will nice. I think the compliant side is completely different and i. do believe that the I should have insurance. Should you buy? If, you have anything to do with any bookie tonight show, let you registered. An. Allow only comply with the regulation. Changes the last year which assistance so it does compliance elements? For the way that I might business in the way that I market myself. Interactive acquired scenes ranks with my associates I. Don't feel lying I. Need Somebody to tell me that school to be accredited, so make a difference the made for Societas. Creditable all. I would never credit anybody because. Same Way that I would never look at Franchisee. Might business overall because I feel that executive, unique and adult? Now and get Connecticut anybody to be Joanne. So, probably very saying that. It's a very very unique things. The at the end and I'm not sure that. I would feel comfortable. They get as somebody was saying I needed to my business or do something stood why? I think I think I asked to didn't ask a good question. Phrased the question role and I think that when you are an accredited training provider, it means that somebody has looked you provide the training out, and it's really top notch. I think that if somebody can say, they've undertaken training by an acquaintance trae now it shares that investing in themselves on the taking dad jokes seriously. Yes, that's why I'm guessing didn't authorize route less. Yes. As great yet. Associates that yet would may unto unsubdued. My mentor recessions. In light. It's great for them to say. Look I mo, people say. Mentor by Toronto. Because of that. I went on one of. Sunset exactly yeah. Really where adults to be announced, dude wants to get to that stage in. So he will.

Hey, you know it's not so terrible we do this. We can cut down our operating. Expenses weakened even if we provide a laptop in a broadband connection on a desks, somebody in the every still cheaper office. I think I think that's going to be a change. Maybe not overnight, but. Jane I wrote an article about last week about being consciously aware. I think he's really great. Time of businesses Obviously businesses are aware of. What's going on financially for that businesses? CanNot might look client new signed. Being consciously aware of. How did we full wall?

I think that's GonNa be a really cool event. When oneself to advertise that, but there was so much nine in May. I lived as chatting about our wise. That was my favorite bit. Of the session, but we are looking to Joe Excuse me about growing. You'll be a business an. We've just been chatting affect for. We came back to finish up about how what tools because we need to attitude of the week. What kind of tools can use to help? You Grow Your Business? Kind of how if you're building a team? What can you use for communication? Making sure we'll documents. He will go accessing templates. You can check to each of the message each other if task assignments. Conduct stuff. How do you manage all of that? So so tools of you used in the president of aid for me about the ones that I. I used a wide variety of tools stomach. By apply if you're an associate, some will be destroyed by your lead the A. As examples, I worked trade. People who've perfect trend. I worked three people who preferred to use Microsoft project. That's an area the expertise, but we'll see. I've also use pipe drives. I Miss Wilson each break systems such as Monday where tasks management and communication all interlinked each a-this tools has. Pluses and minuses, so as an example if you're using the sauna, that's great for managing your tasks sharing tasks sounds. But he's more difficult to have that communication intimate seen each something like Walsh apples slack. All emails and then possibly you're looking at two. Different streams of communication, you need to understand the process and. How you're going to integrate of that so that you will not missing. Streams said. Tools out at a starting to build Kinda more integrated ones. You know. Talk One of those. Yet, Microsoft teams I took about a lot now on. It's become much more popular in the last couple of months of this day, because of every nine t, but before that I was training that into large organizations, so is involved as for its evolving from being cooped to to being a tool that anybody can use. An. I think that's a great thing, so if you're Kukrit's, you're working or maybe your va walking the Cobra. The bricks do an US outsourced via services so with team you created team in project. Basic be basic would be department based realize. They can imagine a team moved made up of tunnels for communications, so think of those as your communication channels, so think of your team building that that the the office and the channels the different floors in the building will the different rooms of the different departments, and then within each channel. You've got a host area, so that's the message in Chat Jedi with everybody in the tapes. Department meeting ongoing all. You can have group meetings. You could have video meetings. Check ratings you concerned. Check into video. You can show you screen like we do zoo. And it does all of those things, but the icing on the cake for me is also a files section, and that we still all the files that we need to work together on. It could be all the templates want everyone to have access to. It could be also documents. The people need and because in the channel everybody else has access to it, which is fantastic you stop sharing it giving permission doing any of that until the vote of Bat. There's a whole host of extra applications that you can act to Channel Two team which enhance the experience like planner. and tasks toss the planner back to combine the not forget the mini. What's the new ones due to be cold something between and It does also you cannot whiteboard. You can add you could actually even add zoom in sleight of teams if you really want to, so it's hugely powerful I'm use it in two ways. Is it with you because we focused? We've mentioned it before, so we have a team for the podcast. It's interest way. Jive is guest user. Asmara's Va Joe has access to everything in that she can get communicate via posts your hand. All the files our guest list is in their plans in that will allow recordings end up in that, so everything is one place. We both access every. We need runway prepping for episode. We'll put some questions in add who's GonNa lost which questions what we want to talk about. It's all in the team. And then if we need to get together in between times, we get together inside teams to have that racing in chess about so i. think that's enough banging on. People know I not about eight. Courses on teams and but. There's a website, but not, but I think he's a great to. What it does is it takes all that different communications in one place? As you said for jet, said we will, we might. We might have email. Might what sack from our spoke on the phone here face? Is Very easy to if you're if you're not focused wave, one or possibly two channels for communication, it's very easy to miss things especially. If you're growing your business I'm you may have one. Two three four five associates can feed. You need a streamline I. Mean Need To. Enable your team to the communicating together and supervising as king manager. In exactly the same way as if you're in the cooper by running a team, exactly exactly what teams doesn't able and I think there's a lot of angst out there as far as teams zoom off, consent said people are saying well I can do. We'll my training zoom and breakout rooms of Michael Whiteboards. Is that the other? Anonymous they want to use that. Replicate that in teams you can, you can replicate most of teams and petits not was not built like zoom for Webinars, and those basics is basically a coup. acted, but he does a heck of a lot, and you can replicate some of that, said Ray Karen's. You could create channels where you get. People's leave the main meeting channel and go into another me saying to do some walk in Vassar, it's possible to directly kate that but now two distinct animals being built for different purposes I think people get confused about that because they think they should be saying then off. Not because the doesn't do offer the other stuff that teams dowse although enough dusk. I'll do like. Same's I'd have my back and I love my windows laptop saying. ambidextrous Lucy who was his taught right tool for the right job at the right time. Exactly, that's actually interested was saying. The wasn't am saying if you're going, to buy UTAH. Army shining and get one heck of put. He says get one book to the way that you work. I think that's really important. Thing about to you. Interviewed Simon about websites. He was also talking about how much learning cuts. Do, you want you know with any new system? At of course this always going to be a learning curve for yet about that's why I? Mean business anyway but. You won't have phase easiest possible when his flattest possible yet absolutely. Well. I think that's enough for today. It's been a super super section. I've got lots of things to think about from some of the things John said. It's just being such fun today, yes. Some great sessions today and Great information from. John Yeah. What's the agenda when Kayla Fed? What you're to next Thursday on his grades, Have Cup of Kate I'm going to.

Unwanted prostate exams given by a hypnotist. Yakuza gang not allowed to trick or treat this year.
"The Japanese Yakuza Gang will not be allowed to hand out Halloween treats to the kids this year a hypnotist is facing assault charges for allegedly giving his clients, unwanted prostate exams, and an elderly woman is the suspected getaway driver for a gang. These are the weird stories for Monday on Weird AF news the only daily Weird News podcast hosted by comedian I'm Joe Ramsey, the host of weird AF news. Thank you for joining me. I'm recording this show inside my closet. Let's go. It's Florida Friday. Only on weird I asked news. Well Halloween going to be a little bit different for the kids this year in Japan because. The Crime Syndicate known as the Yakuza is not allowed to give out. Halloween treats the kids this year they've been banned a how sad. They just want to contribute to the happiness of the local children. So in assembly in Western, Japan has changed an ordinance that will stop the country's largest crime syndicate known as the Yakuza from handing out. Halloween treats to the children at its headquarters later this month. The assembly unanimously approved a revision of the anti-gangster ordinance that was submitted by the Police Department love how they have these rules for the gangsters. Why don't you just arrest the gangsters instead of allowing them to? Proliferate, but then create some restrictions on their behavior. It's like listen listen gangsters. We know you're there. We know your headquarters is there and. You've been given out treats to the kids lately you know for Halloween the past few years and it's been nice. But we're GONNA have to put a stop to that and by the way we don't want to see that Yakuza bunny that you keep sending out for Easter every year you're gonNA have to put a stop to that as well. No more eggs for the kids given out by the Yakuza bunny or right And also while we're on the topic okay, you're Yakuza dumpling food truck that you have in the neighborhood that's been. Selling some pretty delicious affordable dumplings. Stop to that as well. We're going to have to treat you like a real crime syndicate were sorry. Okay. Apparently. The Yamaguchi Gumi which is. The name of the Yakuza in that area has been treating children. At its headquarters in Kobe city on October thirty first for many many years. With gangsters in Halloween costumes handing out treats too young visitors. WHO's laying their child? Go to the gangster headquarters. Along your trick or treat route. That's what I want to know if I have my children and we're on our trick or treat night, and we walk by the headquarters of the Yakuza. I'M GONNA keep, walking okay. What. Kind of expensive. Halloween treats the accuser offering from their headquarters. I'm not letting my children step on the grounds of the Yakuza. Property. It says here, the revised or prohibits crime syndicates from letting children under eighteen, enter their offices without good reason such as cases when the children are relatives of the gangsters and they're visiting. I love how they treat this gangster like it's just a regular company in the neighborhood. Like like it's a starbucks. It says here, the syndicates are also banned from giving cash and goods to children as well making phone calls or sending emails to children with the aim of putting youngsters under their control. Yeah. Of course, this benefits a crime syndicate. Kids like them. You know cooperate with them and maybe even join them at some point. Right get some tattoos. It says here if any Yakuza Group violates this new ordinance. The Public Safety Commission will issue an order to correct the violation and they're going to write the Yakuza. Tech it. Is going over there. It's like instead of. Getting rid of the gangsterism they're like writing them tickets for not recycling. Ridiculous. Now, I mean, I'm not that familiar with how the Yakuza operates how Japan sees the Yakuza overall I. Don't know much about that. If any of you listening have inside information or are just more familiar with this gang and how the community interacts with the gang, add be fascinated to learn more call the show six, four, six, four, five, zero, twenty, twelve.

She owns a bed and breakfast and the Irish detectives suspect her of driving a gang of young criminals across the country to carry out an aggravated burglary. The elderly woman was arrested this week along with her young associates. This is part of an investigation into a daytime be any that means a breaking and entering guys case you didn't know. It was at home in mulling Gar. The burglary happened on Saturday a number of people broke into a home they searched through property stolen number of personal items before taking the keys to the homeowners car and driving. Away. Since. Then the detective carried out some searches and have identified a number of suspects they learned that one of those currently in Garda. Custody is a seventy one year old woman who owns a bed and breakfast in a midland. Town. Well you know it's tough owning a bed and breakfast during a pandemic. You know the money's probably not rolling in for this poor woman she's gotTa do some side. Gigs. She's got to pick up some odd jobs here and there what do you expect? Okay. Why not drive these kids to a burglary? And by the way, I assume they're teenagers without their driving licences that what's going on is she related to any of them? We need more information here. It doesn't even say her name I'm curious. It says that the detectives suspect this woman was involved in driving the associates to and from the scene. And they're also investigating whether she played a similar role in some previous crimes that were carried out by the same men who are aged twenty, eight and forty five they are from the same midland's town as their alleged accomplice that owns the bed and breakfast. Here's a quote from one of the Irish detectives. It does strange dynamic in that you have essentially three different unrelated generations suspected of involvement in this crime. They were all linked to the business that the woman runs in it is being looked at as if she was essentially a getaway driver for this and many other burglaries perhaps. that was my impression of Irish detective I. Don't know if it was accurate I feel like it was close. Perhaps if I was drunk, it'd be much more accurate. I assumed Irish detectives or drunk all day is that true? Can anyone corroborate this information? I know I'm wrong. The Irish poor, Irish get a bad rap for being wasted all the time. But you know I can say that because I'm part Irish by the way this woman's seventy one years old. She's really got it going on I. Mean I don't have the energy to be getaway driver and. Half her age. So what? You know I just hope I have this kind of. I don't know motivation when I'm in my seventies. I just I just think it's going to be tough for me to even get out of my chair when I'm in my seventies never mind. You know? Have the kind of lofty goals that this woman has you know being a getaway driver. That's a tough racket right there. You know you gotta be on point you gotTA have driving skills. Good Vision. You GotTa know the layouts the back alleys, the secret paths you know you got to be able to go off road sometimes I mean there's a lot of skills involved in being get being a getaway driver. Sometimes, you got to be able to shoot a gun to and drive at the same time. I mean imagine this woman is something else man what an inspiration? To my seventies and I say to myself Hey will I even have enough energy to play Bingo at six PM. Every right before bed in here this woman is being a getaway driver. It's just you know I hope to have this kind of life when I'm in my seventies. I mean if this isn't the coolest grandmother that owns a bed and breakfast, I don't know who is. I mean the other thing about being elderly criminal is you can get off sometimes just by saying I don't I don't know what I'm doing I. I didn't take my meds this morning I have no idea where I am. kind of like a get out of jail free card in a way. You know when the police officers across examining you You, just pee your pants and they let you go. LISTEN TO WIT AF news. Want to hear about that mainstream news. That's right.

The battleground place where elections are one in lost Mr. Trump carried the state in two thousand sixteen and amid the true believers, he talked of what has happened since our country is now thriving prospering and booming. And frankly, it's soaring to incredible new heights, but most of the front half of the speech was devoted to re-litigating that twenty sixteen election and the investigation since there was no GRANDE imagery of where he wants to take the country in a second term. The crowd did not care. They're happy with the direction of things under a Trump presidency. Technically the president filed for reelection on inauguration day, allowing the campaign apparatus stories tens of millions of dollars. He's held numerous rallies, where crowds wear make America great again hats. But in Orlando announcing that he's a candidate in two thousand. Twenty. There's a call for a new slogan. We've made America great again, but how do you give up the number one caller theme logo statement in the history of politics for a new one, but you know, there's a new one that really works, and that's called keep America great telling his most ardent supporters, he would never let them down. The president also promised an earthquake at the ballot box availed reference to polls showing him in trouble in some key States, Mr Trump wants some of the usually blue states in no small measure by playing fears and concerns of blue-collar Americans, and at the twenty twenty kickoff he hammered away at bad trade deals, and most importantly, immigrants. Illegal mass by Gration brings in millions of low wage workers to compete for jobs, wages, and upper -tunities against the most vulnerable Americans cutting off their path to the American dream.

I'm Bob Costantini, the acting Defense Secretary withdrawals from consideration to be the defense chief and senators say it couldn't come at a worse time. Correspondent Linda Kenyon has the story. This is a very difficult time. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer with everything going on in Iran, and all the provocations, and counteractions and to have no secretary of defense at this time is, is appalling Senator Schumer responding to the news that acting Defense Secretary, Patrick Shanahan withdrew from consideration to head the US military Shanahan sided reports of domestic violence from long ago, saying he wanted to prevent his three children from reliving, what he called traumatic chapter in our family life, Senator Schumer says President Trump's practice of appointing acting secretaries thereby avoid. Leading the Senate confirmation process is what led to this problem. This Shanahan fiasco shows, what a shambles what a miss the administration's national security and foreign policy. Is it seems whatever pops into the president's head gets out there, then something else than something else, there seemed to be almost no adults in the room and Schumer ads this pattern of behavior is both unacceptable and dangerous and shows the chaos in this administration. They have so many empty positions rotating, revolving doors in the most sensitive of security positions. Every American should worry Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is a bit worried that we're better to have confirmed. Secretary of defense and McConnell says the Pentagon is now without a permanent leader amid rising tensions with Iran, which the Trump administration is accusing of attacking oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, the US and our partners. New stand firm and apply. Concerted ordinance diplomatic economic pressure until Toronto changes its behavior. Behavior says, McConnell is concerning especially given a long history of Iranian aggression. There has been on full display off, and on for thirty years, says, Iran cannot be ignored the administration prepared to do is to engage in measure response against the striking out amid all of this tension with Iran. The president is naming Mark Asper, who currently serves as secretary of the army as the new acting defense, cheap Senator McConnell says that's okay for now. Good choice for acting whether Esper- will be nominated to be the permanent Defense Secretary subject to the full vetting and confirmation process remains to be seen.

But parents either don't know where they are, how to access them or suffer transportation issues to that prevent getting their kids to these places where meals are served in the LA USD, seventy three high schools and two hundred thirty five elementary.

She's covering the President Senate impeachment trial where a verdict is due in. We'll take sixty sixty seven votes to convict president trump making it all but certain he will be acquitted onto articles of impeachment abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The outcome has become more clear over the past past few days with senators taking to the floor to speak on the impeachment for the first time since they served as the jury in the president's trial Senator Lisa Murkowski for example made her views clear air. I cannot vote to convict the Republican. who had been viewed as a potential swing vote on whether to allow additional witness testimony documents during the trial said it is the voters who should decide? If president trump stays in office. The voters will pronounce a verdict in nine months and we must trust their judgment but Murkowski also used her time to announce some decisions of her own decisions about the entire impeachment process. The House failed in its responsibilities and the Senate she said has nothing to be proud of either the Senate should be ashamed by the rank partisanship. That has been on display here fellow Republican. Ted Cruz also took aim at the process up to the voters to decide which policies they want to continue the house. Managers have abused the constitutional process by trying to use impeachment to settle a partisan score. Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell turned up the criticism of the Democrats Washington Democrats thank president. Donald Trump committed a crime or misdemeanor.

Chuck Schumer applauded Collins Decision to allow witnesses and documents aunts and he criticized those who did not the American people are just amazed that our Republican friends would not even ask for witnesses and documents and fellow Democrat.

Oh she sesame senior vice president of education and research listen. I've been working at sesame for a long time now. But when i go to the set and elmo talks to me i talked to elmo he is real we also got help from tarik conley professor of communications and media at montclair university. I'm not apparent full disclosure but an auntie whether it's a tornado or a terrorist attack whether the kids heard about it on the internet or on the playground six takeaways to help you and the little people in your life make sense of a world that can feel really overwhelming takeaway number one. We can control the amount of information we can control the amount of exposure rosemary. Says for starters trying to let your kids watch or listen or browse the news without you and try not to stream it or leave it plan on the background all day long because my parents had twenty four hour news just kind of on around the house throughout the day. I absorbed more news as a child. I probably should have. Molly lewis is one of the many folks who share their story with us. She was six years old when the one thousand nine hundred six murder investigation of jonbenet ramsey was getting wall to wall coverage. Joe ramsey and i were pretty much exactly the same age and i knew that murder was a thing but i had assumed up to that point that murder was just a thing between adults and suddenly i was learning that children could also be murdered. And what's worse. That could be murdered in their homes. Potentially by someone that very much trusted my gosh. That is such a heavy thing for a six year old absolutely and i mean but it's going to happen if kids much time with content. That's not meant for them. And i remember corey a couple of years ago. Common sense media reported that forty percent of parents of young children say the television is on always or most of the time in their home whether anyone's watching are not forty-two percent. Yeah yeah appearance of kids under eight right. Yes without realizing right. So it's pretty common. So i asked his about this. So concretely. should we have news on in the background when our young winner kids. Young kids are around. That's probably a good rule of thumb. Because you can't control you can't control these breaking stories which are always breaking so that's priority number one. But what if you did your best and your child's still sees or over here's something on playground or online. Yeah i mean you. And i both know when you can get a little older. You cannot control everything in here and so something's gonna come up. It's going to upset them. They're going to have questions and you're going to need to talk about it with exactly and that leads us to take away number two when you do have that conversation with your child about something. They've seen or heard that scared them. You need to begin by asking them what they know tear conley. The media researcher says to choose a quiet moment when the phones are down the. Tv's off maybe on the way to school allowing them to have that space where they're asking questions about what they're seeing how they're feeling and what do they think who they think. The story is talking about basically giving kids espace to reflect and she said this also gives them permission to bring up something that may really been bothering them. Also asking what kids already know. It's really important first step because anybody who has kids knows that kids often will develop these wild misconceptions when they don't know the full story and they have very little background knowledge and very little understanding of the wider world to help them here right like alison docker really warfare. Involved like hairy apes or the story from emily pro cop from connecticut. When the monica lewinsky scandal happened. I sincerely thought the whole thing was in the news because she got a stain on her dress. I was terrified that any stain. I may get on my clothes would end up being the laughing stock of my middle school. Die still get an uneasy feeling when i'm at a party and spill anything on my dress. I feel so badly for emily. That sounds kind of terrible. I mean kids machinations are something else and in some cases what they make up can be even more setting than the truth. We have another example of this From sarah linden bom. She grew up in the early nineteen nineties in a small illinois town and she remembers seeing news footage of tanks and fighting from the war in bosnia. I remember huddling on the stairs. Feeling very scared. Because i did not have a sense of the geographic boundaries of the conflict and so to me the possibility that something like that might come to central illinois. Seemed pretty high to me. I was probably about six or seven years old but the fear that i felt sticks with me. So allison had this misconception too and this is a really good moment to make the point that the bulk of the bad news. The kids here about you know likely is not happening. Literally in their backyards and so in these cases rose marie from sesame. She hasn't really simple suggestion. You could get a map you could. You could see distance that it's not in their immediate environment and this brings us to our next takeaway when we're done asking questions to figure out what exactly kids do or don't know give them facts and context so when the sandy hook school shooting happened in two thousand twelve rosaries own son. Lucas was in elementary school. Then she didn't avoid the subject. She made it really clear with him. That children were killed by wanted him to see the faces of the children I wanted him to understand what happened but she also stayed calm. That's important and she didn't overload him with a lot of information this he needs to see all the gory details else. No does he need to know of every event. That's happening absolutely not now as you hero. This need to keep one thing in mind. Different kids are going to ask different questions and they're also going to need really different things from us. That's exactly what i heard from. Evan norman. he's an old acquaintance of actually who moved to parkland florida a few years ago and he lives there with his son and his daughter his son turn eleven the day after the shooting. Marjory stoneman douglas high school. His daughters eight my daughter. She wanted to talk about it. She was interested in hearing the stories of the victims. She wanted to play an active role and putting stuffed animals. Flowers on the makeshift memorials. And really talking it through and my son on the other hand. He didn't wanna talk about it very much. So give kids facts and context based on the questions. They're asking or your sense of what you think they need in the moment. You know your kids best as you're doing that there are some more reassuring things that you can say one. We talked about the geographical thing. That didn't work so well for evan. Of course since the event was right there in his backyard. Right but one thing evan could do is remind his kids that even though this happened where they live this kind of event. A school shooting is very rare. An after all that. That's why it's in the news. Yeah you know corey. This is something. I actually talked to my daughter lulu about when she was just four. I don't remember what the horrifying event was that she had heard about. There's so many. But i said to her. You know when there is stuff that happens. They put it on the news because it's unusual and if you turn on the radio you don't hear a report about all the little girls who are sitting in their kitchen eating breakfast in their pajamas to our list. I think we should report a story on a lot of little girls sitting in their kitchens. Eating pancakes. I think that would be great. Especially since tara commonly the media researcher she thinks this is all really helpful for kids. Make sure they understand that the media can't talk about everything you know. Journalists choose their stories and some stories they. Just don't choose to tell this is important. Not everybody's story gets told ask. What messages are missing. What's omitted from the story Who did they not talk. Not hearing from. You're not hearing from and who do you want to hear. From know media we brought up before dated a survey of children's perceptions and they found that sixty nine percent of kids thought that the news did not capture their own experiences at all or people like them really well and one other thing that really me that we don't just want our kids to treat media like this. It's this window we just look through. She wants kids to see the frame to help them again. Put all of this stuff in the context absolutely so that takes care of the conversation about what exactly happened. But you know corey the next question. We're inevitably going to get his parents is why and that is. Take away number four when you're asked why something happened especially something really tragic violent. Avoid easy answers and focus on the helpers. Both of the kids at various points of ask. Why why did he do it. And they know his name and Yeah you know. Why did he do it. And there's obviously not a great answer for that. It's hard to explain. Evan is still struggling to answer children's questions about why the parkland shooting happened. And rosemary says we should resist the temptation to answer that question by labeling people. I don't like talking about bad people. Bad guys bad guys. Evil guys it's they. There are people who do bad things. There are people who do evil things. Horrific things i don't like labeling people because i think that's overused. Maybe this person didn't get kindness and didn't get love and didn't get nurturing so we can't figure it out all the time that's basically. Would evan and his wife settled on telling the kids. The shooter was someone who wasn't well and needed help. But he says he doesn't explain it completely. I mean let's be real. Nothing can truly explain away something so awful and sometimes we don't have the answers to all of these wise and it's really important for parents to say. I don't know why i don't know why this person chose to go into a church or a school and to shoot people. I don't know what. I wanna sit with this for a second corey. I mean it's a really good point. We talked about in the death episode. Grownups we would love to but we don't always have to have all the answers. Oftentimes that's when we get in trouble with our kids is when pretend to have answers. That just aren't good. But rosemary does have a strategy. Here she says no matter how dark things get we as parents do have the ability to highlight the good yeah. This is the famous advice that mr rogers said his mother gave him when something. Scary is happening. Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping rose. Marie did this when she was talking to her son about sandy hook. The shooting happened on a friday and she says she kept lucas away from the tv all weekend. Lee didn't turn on the tv until president obama spoke because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one. All of us can extend a hand to those in need and there was a memorial service so once again we focused on the positive how people were gathering and taking care of each other but agrees with this especially when it's an event where young people are being targeted like a school shooting or police killing. She thinks it's empowering our natural instinct is to find those that are the antagonists in that story but who are the ones around us. That are actually helping us get through this. Who are the ones that saved the lives of young people at that moment. That's where we should focus and there's even evidence that talking about helpers with kids really does make a difference in how they see their world after the columbine school shooting in one thousand nine hundred nine sesame did a study of children's perceptions of the world through their drawings. There was a lot of a preoccupation of death. They would have a rest tombstones. Rest in peace kind of drawings they would have guns and knives dead people but after the september eleventh attacks just two years later rosemary says media coverage was different. I think the news flip did a little bit and talk a little bit more about the country is strong. The country's coming together we are united. We are going to get through this and she says that this made a real difference for kids after nine eleven when we did the same study they talked about heroes. The talked about helpers. You could see this also in the drawings that the children made police officers firefighters american flags and this shift gets us directly to our next takeaway number five help kids process. What's going on by encouraging them to tell their own version of the story. Children often try to make sense of what they see and hear in creative ways through art through play there on youtube they tell their own stories. They're crafting their own music. Which i used to do a lot. When i was a kid as well. I didn't have youtube. But i did have a tape recorder and i would go upstairs and you know saying and pretend dj but all of that to say that you know the notion of play as part of reconstructing their own stories in there disallowing for that to happen so we've got a pretty crazy example of this. It was nineteen ninety. Five and natalie belan and her friend joel who lived in connecticut at the time were in second grade. He'd come over to my house after school for play. Dates would always want to enact the oj simpson trial. I remember lots of stuffed animals on our couches. I guess to give the effect of a full courtroom. And in retrospect this pretty terrible but whenever our families cocker spaniel would enter the room. Joel would say that. That was the ghost of nicole. I guess that's kids imaginations for you as wild does it. Sounds tara says this is a core human adaptation. It also helps us make sense of the world around us particularly when we're bombarded with information do this to away. I mean instead of physically active something outer drive picture. We might tell new stories in conversation at the dinner table. Are we re tweet or a comment. Yeah kids need to understand. That media's constructed well what does that mean well you can construct your stories. You could do a video. You can make a new story. So tara taylor students that have something. They learn in their classes. Sabe reece's zimmer sexism. Something in the news upsets them. And i told him i say. Hold that because the semester. You're going to create something and remember what you're feeling right now. Remember that jolt. Remember that question. And i want you to come back to it at the end of the semester. And i want you to make something from that. So our jobs are right in the middle of the news on yet but even from that position i find the most upsetting thing about reading or watching. The news is like i said in my original story about the tornados just makes me feel powerless. Yeah and i mean adults feel that way. Children feel even more powerless. That's just the nature of being a child. Sometimes so we can encourage kids to respond creatively or final. Take when there's something happening in the world that you're struggling to talk to your child about. Don't talk about it. Take action so at the beginning of this episode we heard from alison qua- about her memories and fears about the vietnam war stuff. She just have overheard and allison is now a mom and she takes a pretty different approach with her daughter. She talks to her upfront about everything in the news. Like the newtown version of gorilla vs guerrilla allison adopted her daughter on her own from ethiopia and they now live in new orleans My name is louis and delight. Spelled e. d. e. l. a. w. i t. Right now de luise eleven. She was seven years old. When michael brown was killed by police in ferguson missouri. I just didn't know what to think it was just. It was so scary for a lot of different people's lives. It was scary from wildlife. And i say when i processed stuff i just think about god could have happened to me so she says then and in the year since then whenever something like that is happening. She and her mom follow a series of steps. She always tells me about something. And i always have time to process it. And then she says what i can do to help myself to protect myself and she always in not order and then we go and protest a date later. I was talking to her about that and she said she never noticed that she did that. Terror the media researcher says in talking with our children. We also have to show them how we're helping to and asking them. What do you how do you see yourself as a helper and these situations in other words. Don't just look for the helpers be alpers so for your family that might mean going to a peaceful rally or protests like the al kwan's do or reading money together for our cause writing and elected official orbits natural disaster rosemary says taking action might mean involving your child in practical planning as a family we need to be prepared and need to put that emergency preparedness kit together so at home to be practicing. Fire drills So include your kid. And he's preparation. Include your child in the preparations that is key So now it's time for a quick recap. I take away. Keep things on to know basis. Don't leave the tv on. maybe i will turn off. Npr more often. It's hard core. Goes against all my instincts. Take away number two when the time comes to talk with your kids about something scary in the news. Pick a quiet moment and start asking questions questions about what. They're seeing how they're feeling. What do they think. Who do they think the story is talking about takeaway number three. Give kids fats and context. Rosemary says the lead with reassuring stuff you know if events really far away you can show the map lord just point out that something really rare. That's happened totally. Take away number four. When you're asked. I do bad things happen especially when people are doing the bad things avoid easy answers and labels and focused on the helpers talk about how there is good in the world food good in your community. There are people who care about you. There are people who keep you safe take away. Number five is encouraged. Kissed held her own version of a story. Kids need to understand that is constructed. Well what does that mean. Well you can construct your stories. You could do a video you can make a new story and finally takeaway number six when you're struggling to talk about something that's happening. Don't just talk about it. Find a way to take action with your kids. And that's all for this episode of life. Get thank you so much for listening special. Thanks to kenneth.

Lift and and these delivery services and whatnot as a likely place that they could organize if these people became employees as as long as they're independent operators couldn't become organized because there are drivers and workers in other industries that want to be independent contractors and because there are so many exemptions that are arbitrary arbitrary for example hairdressers are exempt. manicurist are not very confused.

I do Sir that the the United States House abruptly has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I've ever been involved in the resolution. How stupid is that on impeach? In fact the House voted three thirty to ninety five to table or effectively kill the first articles of impeachment to come to the floor since Democrats took the majority nearly one hundred Democrats voted for the articles of impeachment. Even as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to counsel caution and case building for impeachment where other than rushing to a vote on Tuesday the House voted to condemn the president's recent tweets as racist after he targeted for Progressive Congresswomen all women of color who have been outspoken critics of the president and and his policies in his tweets trump said the congresswoman should go back to their home. Countries all are U._S.. Citizens only one was born outside the U._S.. Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has a history of launching vicious this anti Semitic screens among other things the congresswomen who call themselves the squad have decried the treatment of detainees at the southern border especially children they also support healthcare are and the green new deal they want to demolish our constitution weaken our military eliminate the values that built this magnificent country the president also saves some of his fire for the Democratic presidential contenders Birdie.

More than 100 newsrooms are using the Washington Post's massive database to cover the opioid crisis in a new way
"One if there was a way to track the path of every single pain pill sold in the United States while the Washington Post. I found a way and it's made the data publicly available so now newsrooms across the country are using this information to explain and dissect the OPIOID epidemic. I'm Brian stelter. This reliable sources podcast. It is our weekly chance to go. We're in depth with media. Leaders newsmakers Puckett about how the news gets made now. All of us can help make it better and today's story is really one about collaboration about cooperation in the news business. That didn't always used to happen this way.

He's The Washington Washington Post's investigations editor and he oversaw the data teams work on this project Jeff. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for having me Brian. This is a project that became public became visible in July. Now we are talking in September but the roots of this effort go back years tell me about the opioid files and how this project began well we really started our effort of the Washington Post and early twenty sixteen gene we came across a source former. Da Official named Joe Ramsey who explained to us his efforts to basically run a crusade against the drug companies to prevent the diversion illegal diversion of opioids and how essentially he fought plot hard for ten years but essentially it ended in failure and he was forced out of his job and the law that the at used against the drug companies suspending suspending their drug shipments was changed by Congress and signed by President Obama so we got very interested in this story in two thousand sixteen because the crisis was peeking deaths were in the tens of thousands and as we began working on it the West Virginia Gazette and mail in Charleston came came out with a piece of the database just for West Virginia seven hundred eighty million pills had been distributed just in West Virginia over over a period of about seven or eight years and so that intersected with our reporting we had already foia had filed a freedom of Information Shen request for the VA data which is in a database known as Arcos which stands for automation of reports and Consolidated Order Orders System System which is called Arco and it's what the DA uses to keep track of controlled substances manufactured and distributed by drug companies so we we've filed a foia for that data and we were denied essentially any real detail data we were told to go check on their website for very very general data and we just decided to fight for that data because we realized both looking at cases that the DA had made and states like Florida that this showed the pathway of the pills and the West Virginia reporting showed an enormous volume in West Virginia and we realized if we could get this data for the entire nation it would give the overall picture of how the OPIOID epidemic grew around the country. Is it fair to say that this is a data trove that is taxpayer funded. This is up in the the government's producing about the public. Oh yes and the piece of the data we got. We didn't get the entire database we got the the data from two thousand as an six to two twenty twelve and it was five hundred million records ultimately it showed that seventy six billion opioid pills had been distributed in that seven year period so it was a hundred times what had been distributed in West Virginia and when you mapped it out winner yeah I mean it showed the pills going from manufacturer to distributor to to pharmacy and when you when you mapped it out you could see the exactly the trails and the patterns and where huge amounts gone to pharmacies and in in communities with very low populations nations and you could begin to see that the hardest hit places where the places that got the most pills general and some of this correct me if I'm wrong is just ordinary legitimate use of pain pills when you get home from surgery but then a lot of this is drug abuse yes most of it probably probably is not drug abuse but a significant amount of it is I think the issue with opioids was nobody realized how addictive they were. They started spreading across the country. so when were you all able to obtain the Arcos data from two thousand six thousand twelve we got it in. July through what had happened was the data you know these counties cities towns had sued the drug companies and federal court in all of their lawsuits were consolidated into a single what they call multi district legislate litigation an MD L. case in Cleveland and the judge in that case had put the date under protective order meaning nobody could release it it had gone from the DA to the the attorneys suing drug companies but it was under a protective order couldn't be released so we filed a lawsuit with the Charleston gazette mail and took a year and we lost at the District Court level but the Circuit Court of Appeals Court ruled in our favor and the judge lifted the protective order for those years of the database and this is something you all come up against all the time when when you're trying to foia from formation it's something that CNN and other news was that let's also come up against what are what are the arguments for keeping this kind of data secret what's the argument for keeping taxpayer-funded data away from the public well the companies argued that it's proprietary business information and it would be giving away the secrets of how they conduct their business exposing that information to their competitors sometimes they make privacy arguments but the government argument is that we have ongoing investigations and this might expose those investigations and so in order to take away those arguments the judge ruled the data released only up through twenty twelve so you couldn't argue that recent investigations or recent business practices are being captured in this data and we'll talk about this data from two thousand six two thousand twelve but are you all seeking the more recent data right now is our court fight for that we are the only other two years that are available are two thousand thirteen in two thousand fourteen the rest of the data is still under lock and key by the DA and it is as you say taxpayer funded in that data if that ever sees the light of day you know it's probably unlikely it's a little bit scary to think that there's all this more recent information about what's happening today in our communities but we don't get access to it so so you're working on a what a seven year time lag looking at this data about how these pills wrecked communities that's true but the positive ositive aspect of that is the data we have captured the peak of the of the OPIOID prescription pill epidemic. The epidemic changed started changing changing around two thousand thirteen and more more as you know under. Da Pressure the companies began to tighten up their practices and became harder to you get these pills and therefore addicts people who needed them began to resort heroin buying heroin on the streets and that heroin use led to fennel us in federal is much deadlier than either heroin or prescription pills and that's what's leading to the huge surge now. The People Got Hooked Don the OPIOID pills they turned to heroin heroin was being mixed with Fenton oil and then pure Feno was being sold and that's how the progression of the epidemic transpired inspired so in July you all decided to publish the database of this Arcos data that was obtained a court fight. It's out there now. It's on Washington Post Dot Com. It shows is these millions of of painkiller transactions. What was the thinking about going ahead and publishing the database well. We truly believe that. This story is bigger than anyone news outlet. It's really a nationwide story. It's affected almost every community throughout the nation. It really requires a nation nation wide level of media attention so we believe that you know other people should have access to this data to see how it affected their communities and they can write about different aspects of it because the deaths are all over the nation. I mean they're concentrated in certain areas such as Appalachia but they they're really are are hard hit areas everywhere up in Massachusetts. You know some of these mill towns that have fallen on hard times so we felt like they're they're basically there are more stories here than we can tell so our goal was to make this data available to any journalists interested in pursuing with us. How new attitude food is that on the part of the Washington Post or or newsrooms like it. I mean ten twenty years ago. Do you think y'all would have opened up this database and shared with anybody including rival news outlets. I'd I don't think we would have. I think that the Internet has changed. Everything has changed a news distribution and how we look at competition fission and I I think in those days it would have been you know I mean when the Pentagon papers came out the New York Times did did start releasing them but also it maintained exclusives for as long as it could and I think that was that was the thinking back then that you that if you had an exclusive you rode your exclusive exclusive but today everything is moving so fast and the level of complexity is such that the feeling is get the information out there and and and and start the discussion which which happens on so in so many more places than so many more platforms and again we really felt that it was a public service to make this data available and and it allowed everybody I mean we have a look up where you can see the pills in your community.

I I'm your host Brian. stelter joined by Jeff Lean of the Washington Post. He's The investigations editor at the post and he's been overseeing coverage of the opioid crisis among among many other topics Jeff. We've been talking about the database the post published providing years of information about the path for pain pills spreading across across the country from two thousand and six to two thousand twelve and I noticed in a recent interview said in your mind. This is the biggest story of our time what has been going on with this painkiller killer crisis Do you think that the press has met this story with enough force with enough attention in recent years I think you're starting to see that especially with all the coverage of the trial in Cleveland now these opioid stories are the national news whenever they occur when we were writing about them right before the two thousand sixteen election we get hardly any attention at all and I think most most of our stories were drowned out by what was going on in the country and with the trump campaign and but now you're you're beginning to see them breakthrough. Oh and it's national news and tell me more about the Cleveland case. This is the first federal opioid trial that set to get underway in Cleveland later this fall well. It's the first one that has collected a large number of plaintiffs in these are cities these towns and county governments throughout the nation representing their people and saying to the drug companies Your product damaged our communities. We're seeking you know we're seeking recompense for that and so so there have been other cases. you know where state governments have sued the companies and but this is really the first time that there are more than two thousand cities counties and towns doing this. There's there's separate lawsuits brought by state's attorney general so there's there's a lot of activity going on and I think that the country has woken up to what's happening and you know in previous years we didn't have we didn't have the Arcos database which showed the number of pills and where they were going and which companies or making them in which companies were distributing attributing them in which companies were selling. We didn't have that information and we also we didn't have the internal drug company documents that have been coming the litigation in addition to producing producing the the Arcos database as produced millions of pages of internal drug company documents where you can see their emails els and you can see you know different materials which showed that the companies were aware of the crisis and the problem and and and also it shows internal warnings about you know there are there are company employees saying you know we're selling a whole lot. Volpi leads at this one particular store can somebody check the validity of this and then it wasn't checked so the red flags or there that so you couldn't see before the ignored warnings or there that you couldn't see before and even some joking by Drug Company Employees One drug company employee a likened opioids doritos for their addictive quality and and and another said you know sell sell sell you know so there was an attitude of you know there was a there was an attitude of aggressive marketing going on even as the crisis was peaking and people were well well aware of the effects of these products and four teams like yours The Washington Post to have databases to have documents foyer to have lawsuits lawsuits with discovery. All of this is crucial because it puts information on the record for the first time. These are the tools of our trade without them. We really can't the type of deep accountability or investigative reporting that that we're supposed to be doing. I think people sometimes take for granted the process of getting documents getting getting this data out to the public that requires a lot of work in court and requires deep pursuit of these court cases when they're happening There's been headlines this week of course the news on Monday about purdue Pharma declaring bankruptcy it. Can you draw a line to be drawn from your investigations to this newest. How's IT relate. No I mean I think that this is part of the larger story that I described purdue in the nineteen nineties introduced oxygen content really one of one of the first opioids and and they aggressively marketed it it turned out to be much more addictive than people realized realized and so and and purdue actually was fined six six hundred million dollars by the FDA for false marketing back in two thousand and seven and so so they took a major hit back then what happened was other accompanies generics started producing these Oxycontin Code on Oxycontin and A- and hydrocortisone and they essentially took over the market and so the flow is not cut off whatever happened to purdue in two thousand and seven seven and so the the problem got worse rather than better even after the FDA took one of the harshest actions actions it's ever taken against drug company and so the real story is what happened after that and the DA's attempt to to rein in those companies that were flooding the country with these products after purdue so an but purdue is is is because it was the first because of its marketing was being so aggressive because it's the maker of oxycontin is is been. I mean it was I pursued in West Virginia in two thousand and one and so it's been out there the longest it's the most well known the sackler family is is being blamed for the epidemic but they were only one of the actors. I in a large constellation of companies that were producing these products addicts and distributing and marketing them and so. I think that they're reckoning what is happening to them is is part of a larger story. That's been in the works for a a long time. I do think that the Cleveland Multi District Litigation accelerated that and I think it brought it to ahead because I think that certain people could see the handwriting on the wall and how do you end a case like this. you know with this many defendants with this much evidence evidence with this much scrutiny you know with this much negative press yeah what is what is the fair solution for the companies and and the people blue-ribbon affected by their products think what's so staggering about this subject is is the scale the scale is stunning. The the number of people impacted the number of pills. I I wonder how you all think about trying to convey the scale and and making sure people understand it. It's been the hardest thing as we've been trying to write about this when we when we started in two thousand sixteen focus was from from the whistle blower the Joe Ramsey see who was ah head of drug diversion for the for ten years and wage the battle against the drug companies are are first angle in into the story was what happened with his crusade and how was it derailed and how how is the. DA's Power Ltd and as we were reporting that you know we you know we came across all of these cases that the previously brought in and as I said it's it's five hundred million dollars worth the fines against some of the biggest companies in America mckesson Cardinal Health CVS walgreens since these are all fine some of them repeatedly and and so what we didn't we didn't know the overall number of pills also and it's a little bit staggering to think that the greatest drug threat to the country comes internally from your own companies and a illegal product. You always think that threat comes from the outside from some drug cartel. It's cocaine heroin in it. It's you know. It's it's marijuana the that that that was the drug war that we dealt with for decades right. Nobody expected it to come from the inside through prescription drugs so the scale love it is is hard you know. I you have to look at the size of these companies. mckesson is the seventh largest company. I believe in in the nation and they're in the middle title of this so it's a little bit hard to believe the size of the companies the the the the seventy-six billion pills the the amount of money money involved in that act that that the the the drug threat came from the inside rather than from the outside. Maybe that's the history books will record. That'll be the story that's told decades from now that it came from the inside and that many people knew and let it happen and I think I think that people thought well this is. This is a legal product this is this is a legal product. That's a controlled substance. You must get a prescription from a doctor doctor and and the system is set up to prevent abuse but what we discovered with with opioid in pill form it proved to be more addictive than when people thought it proved to be harder to control than people thought and the the the companies began manufacturing and distributing enormous amounts in in the two thousands and the DA could see it happening. I mean everybody could see it happen because the deaths started to rise but it turned out that nobody could really do do that much about it they did tighten up they did they did go after the companies they find him half a billion dollars but by then a significant number of Americans Americans were hooked on opioids and they started turning the street heroin and then fennel so looking forward not going to give away any big scoops. You're about to pursue. Do you entertainment the poster working on but are you still using the database that you've now provided the public. Are you still mining the database for future stories on this subject. We're minding the database and we're also minding the records that are being released in the Cleveland lawsuit and It's just a trove of information. It's a mountain it's Everest assize collection of data and we keep finding new stories and we just did a news story that put up on the Web Friday and it was it was about an inside look at how the drug companies had managed to defeat the DA over the DA's most powerful weapon to hold them accountable at the height of the epidemic hammock and that's based on documents recently released in the Cleveland lawsuit well as we said the scale of the story there is still so much more report and I'm grateful. There are papers like the post that have the resources to do it. It seems like a really interesting example of a collaboration where we're local smaller. News outlets are benefiting from from the work. You all are doing as well well. It's been one of the happiest surprises of this to see how much it's been picked up around the country into into feel like everybody's. Nobody's working on this story not just us right now. Definitely thank you so much thank you. Everyone can check out the work. We've been talking about if you just google. The opioid files are you'll. You'll see the Washington Post coverage of this subject as well as the database. We've been talking. I thank you for joining us on this.

Factory Malfunction Causes Chocolate Snow to fall down on a Swiss town. It's rain chocolate Hallelujah residents of a Swiss. Town had a shock when it started snowing particles of of fine cocoa powder. Thanks to what does it just naturally rain chocolate. Switzerland I'd imagine it does it's one of the reasons why I'd like to visit walk around wouldn't clogs and with my mouth wide open just catching chocolate particles written my tongue. WHOA. Yeah. What happened? Well, there was a malfunction at the local chocolate factory. The Lind in spoon jly SPRUNGLI company lint. That's the word. I. Recognize L.. A. N. D. T. is at lint or Lindy Lindy Lindy. Never mind. It's chocolate raining from the sky what the hell happened. Well, it was a minor defect in the cooling ventilation for nine. FOR ROASTED COCOA NIBS in the facility at ten, which is between Zurich and Basil. The chocolate cocoa nibs, which are fragments of crushed cocoa beans are the basis of chocolate. You guys know about the nibs ride everybody's. Crush up some nibs and snort him sounds like a great weekend in the Swiss Alps. Strong winds on Friday mornings for Sunday go weatherman strong winds on Friday mornings spread the cocoa powder around the immediate vicinity of the factory leaving the fine cocoa dusting. If you'll notice we have eight mile per hour winds coming from the northeast which blowing inches and inches of cocoa nibs We got four inches in Basil. Three inches in Zurich there's no school in Switzerland. The company says one car was lightly coated in the powder just one car come on I want to hear about a whole house that was covered in cocoa it turned into like a chocolate house. Throw some. GINGERBREAD UP. Next thing you know you get yourself a real life gingerbread house sounds amazing. Lind has offered to pay for any cleaning needed but hasn't yet taken up on the offer. hasn't that shit melted I would imagine it is it still cold? In Switzerland this time of year that. The chocolate on the street won't melt. ANYWAYS, factory production continued at the factory as normal. The company says, the particles were completely harmless to people or the environment. In fact, the opposite the particles were delicious to the people and the environment. I guess like this is the perk of living in the vicinity of factory is once in a while the factories. Go Haywire and it's going to blow cocoa powder into the sky or the factory might just generally explode altogether, and then next thing you know it's just raining down chocolate bars and gooey goodness who knows The only thing that would be more pleasurable to live near as like a beer plant of some sort that way if that, if that thing explodes, you got beer just Russian down the street just floods of beer a beer soon nami coming down main street. You know you just stand out there with a Mason Jar and hold it down and just scoop it all up or get something bigger than a mason jar. Your. An empty plastic trash bow just scooping up all that beer and then just sprint right to your garage and have yourself a man cave. Good time. A seeks a divorce from her perfect husband why? In a bizarre incident, a Muslim woman has sought a divorce from her husband on the grounds that he does not ever fight with her. The woman has approached a Sharia court for divorce just eighteen months after her marriage to this man, the woman claims that her husband's love. is suffocating her. Here's a quote from her. He does not shout at me. And neither has he upset me on any issue. He even cooks for me. He helps me perform household chores. This is what she told the court. Further. She said whenever I make a mistake he always forgives me for that I wanted to argue with him I. Do not need a life with a husband agrees to anything and everything. Well, the Sharia court cleric expectedly rejected her plea for divorce terming it as quote frivolous. When the Sharia court refused to grant her divorced, the woman took up the matter with the local. Punch it, which also expressed its inability to decide the issue. I don't know what it is. Is it a? Is it the police force? What is it? Is it like the Shaman of the area you go to the Shaman. Meanwhile the woman's husband said, he loves his wife he's always wanted to keep her happy. That's his thing. He also requested that the court return the case the court has now asked the couple to resolve the matter mutually. Well I guess this is a question then for the ladies, is there ever a time when the? When you're manages to nice and it's just too much suffocatingly Nice. he's to helpful to caring in this. Just this makes you disgusted by him. I can see a situation where this happens. There's an entire range of this. You know you always hear about the the women who want the bad boy they're attracted to the bad boy. In other words they're attracted to not even a nice guy somebody who's opposite of that they want to fight they want to be treated terribly they for some reason, just dig that and then you got. The. Women who who want somebody who to be completely agreeable. Always Nice. Always helpful consider etc, and then you know there's this is a whole range. Okay. Those are the extremes. People fall in the middle of course as well. I'd imagine well, I want my husband to be nice but not always nice. That's boring is that boring I think it might be to some ladies. There really can be too much predictability in a relationship and some people are not cool with that. You know in this instance, this woman. In India is just not having it. As difficult as it is to imagine somebody divorcing a man for being too amazing. It's happening. My question though is I mean did not spend any time with the guy before you got married I mean, did you not see what would swell guy he was prior to getting hitched? The is in no time spent was this an arranged marriage? You know there's a lot of questions here, but it seems to me like you should find out. You know a person's level of niceness before you decide to spend the rest of your life with them. Call the show ladies love to hear some input on this six, four, six, four, five, zero, twenty, twelve. Cove nineteen not scary enough for you will. The Japanese group is offering coffins and chainsaws for a little stress relief. Yes. Is. Trying to take people's minds off of cove in nineteen. By, putting them inside coffins surrounded by chainsaw wielding zombies, insert, sound effects, rain rain rain rains, customers. This weekend in Tokyo can lie in a six and a half foot windowed box also known as a coffin. Listening to a horror story and watching some actors perform as zombies getting poked with fake hands and squirted with bloody water. ooh. Here's a quote from the coordinator of this production company, which is known as scarce squad. This guy's name is Kent WanNa. He says, you know the pandemic is very stressful right now on everybody we hope that people can get a bit of relief by having a good scream you know. So they're putting on this fifteen minute long show. To terrorize people into I. Guess you know forgetting about what's really going on in the world? It's pretty smart? In a way, what we're really doing is giving customers and alternative in a way to blow off some steam. Here's a quote from a customer that had this experience name. Kazushi row has your Gucci. He said, you know lots of events have been canceled these days because of the Damn Corona virus and that was looking for a way to get rid of my stress you know. Why not lie in a coffin for eight hundred yen you know I feel really relaxed now. Eight hundred yen is the equivalent of about seven dollars and sixty cents if you're keeping track at home. Some of Wanda's customers are owners of other businesses like shopping malls and he hopes that they will. Get this idea and host this mobile show in their own venue. here's a quote we needed to have something that we could take anywhere and coffins they're very easy to move. All you need to do is put them into Rome it's good business for us in satisfying for our customers. So this guy's pitching this as hey, you want buy one of these coffins yourself or rent them. have. Have a good time. Invite your friends over and scare the crap out of them. It's a good way to Get scared, and also socially isolated at the same time because you're inside the coffin. In other words safe activity for these trying times. That's how you Japan always goes above and beyond when it comes to the weird ideas man I, love the place.

Oklahoma City Oklahoma City police were called to a seven eleven convenience store in response to a man who is threatening the staff and the customers. Oh, no nothing good happening at a seven eleven in Oklahoma City at night. The man was identified as James Pettijohn Petty John What an old school name Mr. Petty John. Are you selling newspapers on the corner. Petty John was allegedly asking people if they were ready ready to died today. Are you ready to die today? who were you Batman know? Why are you talking like that I'm vampire okay. What are you doing in a seven eleven? I got a little hungry I like those little hot dogs that roll around on that thing. Police say that when they arrive, he ran to a median on the expressway. Oh, boy just got he'd he ran? He didn't fly you mean the a real vampire. Officers tried to make contact with people on, but he took his shirt off, kicked off his sandals and took a fighting stance. Well, what's a fighting stance for like kung-fu stance? Are we talking like some Bruce Lee Shit here? was He really like doing a vampire fighting stance which I don't even know what that would be showing his fangs I imagine did he have fangs? It doesn't safe yet banks the police were able to grab his arms and hands cuff him He didn't have vampire strengthen guest is this guy's not a real vampire guys that's what I've come away with only halfway through the article. What's truly bonkers about it is it's not even Halloween. So that means this guy's on some amazing drugs. He's on a drug that makes them think it's October. Clearly, he began pulling away from the police though when they tried to come, he kept yelling he was a vampire quote a vampire. He was going to bite the officers neck and drink his blood goodness while the officer was putting him in the police car petty John shouted that he was going to spit in his face. Wow Man. It's unbelievable that the police officers didn't shoot this guy. When you're a white dude, you can yell vampire. Okay. Kick the police and try and bite them and threatened to drink their blood and they still won't shoot you. This is unbelievable. He then spit he actually lunged forward. Once he got in the car and spit in the officers face saying I'm going to feast on your blood. The police transported him to a hospital to get blood drawn to see if he is exposed to to any diseases that he may have given to the officer. or or Kovin for that matter. Omar. Goodness. This is this is just nuts man. I can't imagine what this guy's group of friends must think of him. You know every time he gets wasted he thinks he's a vampire this is a guy you can't invite to a party. There goes Pettijohn again, what happened We got a keg it was his birthday and Oh don't tell me. Yes. Yes. He had another vampire. God again yeah. Yeah. You know spat in everybody's face threatened to take our blood. You know there's just your typical. You know that Oh you know that petty. John.

"Very nice of the Yankees to send over some. WFAN THE YANKEES NICK CAPS so we've got a one for all of us. I mean let me ask you a question. What's that. Oh why the Yankees have to send it over. Why don't we have some here. That's a great question to question. I asked last week next. WFAN Logo Doug. I mean it's nice job. We don't make anything here. Is that the way it works well if you think about it right do we don't make our own T. anything so they may yeah. They're nice ads. you know I'm not GonNa wear it though yeah. I got mine Jerry so you got yours on. I'll wear the Alice got his on is guns. Eddie refused to even take even wanted like I again. I reached out my hand with the Hat Eddie. WFAN Yankees cap he stared at me would not even take it to give it to do that. He didn't even want to re gift it though I thought maybe he would take it and regifter a Yankee fan in the building but anyone wanNA touch it but I've got mine prominently displayed right in front of me here with the Wfan logo and everything else so it's not for a couple you know on the one. This giveaway is but we expect to have them here at the station overdue. Mr Turnoff told me okay really doesn't have have them. How come I m not giving away yet yeah. Why had to get them right? We order you get them from not to be discussed. he's got sources sources and stay away from my source these hot. Do you get these off the back of a trade off the back acuff a truck no I don't I don't operate in that world. You know that yeah no I understand. It's just a little curious. Are you able to get your hands on these for anybody else. You know what because because they can just leave it that way all right we will leave it drives. You guys a solid no. I think it's very nice. If you want one out of the you know my friend sent me one and said Oh where proudly and I'm like hey come on now. Come Down with that that Yankee sweatshirt of yours that you're right. They have the New York Janki sweatshirt. Stop It. It's not a J. crew. That's fine hi. My name is boomer and I love bank here. We go here. We go every year in September tambor's the same thing well every year yeah. Let's because one team in the mets are officially dead. Unfortunately we can crush now all of a sudden. They start hitting us a crappy. Colorado rockies but Dan pitching at home. He has a meltdown and gives up a opposing a hit to the opposing pitcher hadn't had a hit since the same calendar day a year ago day. September sixteenth Antonio's incivility all right Jerry. What else is going on in sports. Well we ever not by direct energy business your GO-TO team for total energy management. Let's start with you. GotTa start with Monday night football before we get to the mets obviously you're the jets and the browns last night metlife stadium a lot going on here and a lot with Odell Beckham junior on your second down there behind the change second twelve snapback. He's got looking Middle Lookie far-right going down the right sideline a one headache rabbi. Beckham Buddy is out of odds. You'RE GONNA say he's GonNa say. I play by play guys do that. It drives me nuts like oh now. They're gonNA say this. You know right. They didn't say was out of bounds. You assumed he was out of bounds and you made the call. Prematurely I was browns radio. I didn't play it because of that but just because I know TV CBS sports now we're GonNa play the highlights and then Beckham would cap off his nine. Acre Mayfield is in the shotgun which up at his side side with I intend to fix the hit on though Beckham Gino Twenty five foot race to the thirty on the Hash mark the forty foot race to the fifty thirty twenty down the near certain contain five touchdown. Oh tell beckoned junior acquit kinder- eighty nine yard touchdown pass Baker Mayfield to beckon junior in his return state hitting Harland on an OB J. night so he asked to come off the field in the beginning because he's got a rampant wasn't any divisor. I have that so he's off the field right then he starts cramping again so he's got to do his every week. Fluid routine I gotTa exit before the first half is to get the fluids he has one handed catch and then he takes a slant to the house. So it was classic game. This was his he put his resume of display last debate not wear the watch it. He didn't WANNA get fine. I thought he had it on in the fourth quarter where he did not he put it on the fourth goal. I thought he had it on for it. I didn't I didn't say I just assumed that I didn't see it. In the first quarter wasn't gonNA put it on any point game warm up or something. Perhaps maybe yeah yeah so you had all of Odell right little piece of it all the nonsense all the greatness and just all the just just minutia that comes along things catches hundred sixty one yards and that touchdown twenty three two three the browns beat the jets who really he had no chance last night. Trevor Siemian leaves early in the second quarter with an ankle injury that looked hideous supposedly on crutches in a walking boot after the game. Mri Bali the snap off the field awful Luca Folk Twentieth Two thousand five hundred ninety eight yards. No touchdowns no interceptions as he came on as quarterback. Jetson need a quarterback now. The offensive line was just a disaster is Adam Gates. What we're going to look at these guys like all our guys and see who's doing their job? He's not we have at the move pieces around. Do we have to kind of change some things up and love eon bell sixty eight yards rushing sixty two yards receiving he says not good enough tonight. We've got better period. Hey we got a better. We got to catch balls. Protect the FOOTBA eliminate pre-snap Hillary's so there you know what would be so there are thirty two teams teams in a League yeah how would you where would you rank the jet quarterback situation right now out of those thirty teams top of my head thirtieth. Thirty first giants is worse. I don't know about that. Daniel Jones is healthy. Talk Jerk Betty La.. No no no. It's it's it's probably the worst in the league just because we don't know the timetable for Sam Darnold right now. You lost your right right. You Lost Your backup and now you've got Luke Fox. Gardner mintues a better option right now. He's actually played okay so yeah. It's the worst in football so when you when you hear Levian Bell saying saying you know we got to eliminate the pre-snap penalties and things like that pre snap penalties happen when quarterbacks get on the field who have not been on the field and now they're dealing with the anxiety and the speed of the game and all of a sudden you know they start with the step counts and everything's different and the offensive line is kind of uneasy because they're not really assures the guy behind them and it just adversely affects every aspect of the offense. It's just the way it is and for the most part however I I would just say I would give Luke Falk pretty good grade given that he actually went out there and completed some passes. I wanted to see him. Leave at some point the game. I'm not to get hurt but just maybe I don't know maybe he's he had a visor on that was illegal just to see what they would do it quarterback after Luke Falk right like what was the option after Luke far GUMRI. Maybe plus the remaining bell. I would have been amazing. There's lying about the the lineup in the wild in the paper today that bell is they're listed stood as their emergency quarterback that would have been. He led them back like the Comeback Levy on bell standing back there. It's just throw it rockets the guy he's a good player man. He's gotTa see good. I forgot how good he was yeah. Here's Falk did some things well. We had. Some positive plays out there. I think we got some real drives going just in those critical moments we gotta find a way to convert and score some points that said at the end of the day there to Luke Falk Post Post game press conference jets after two on offense looks like he worked at Hertz Eighties. Eighties is now the leader he is for now. Yes now here's Robbie Anderson. This is a long clip. He's Tom Brady next week. Interesting can't take it anymore. Are you know what I'm saying. I dying so we you know what I'm saying like going here every day since I've been here putting all I don't WanNa. Do is win on trying to do saying hi. This is buried depressing. You know saying it just feels right there but this is not pressing. Do you know what he's saying Jerry Zoo. You know what you're saying. Bro All right got it. I know what you're freaking saying. Let's see what the spread is next. We looked at this upper. There is none right out. There was no line I looked last night. It was eighteen and a half last night when I looked again this morning to see if it moved it was it was not bendable on the Abdelilah. You'd think that Luke Falk. Maybe move the needle. He gets the needle right off the edge of the I can't even get it. Here's a Dell Beckham. Oh you do that. Here's Beckham about what was set on Friday and Florin Park Foods your feelings about what Greg Williams said the other day. I said thank you one of the League's most dynamic players who who's that's funny funny. No I don't mind him what Odell Beckham. That's fun. Little tattletale reporters going from one guy came when he said that he said I mean come on well. They don't really know what I I wish. Reporters sometimes can put a uniform and go out there and play that would be fun. Let's get something a little more imposing eighteen right now. CBS Sports Dot Com but I feel like it's going to be more than that. Here's Baker Baker Mayfield with the media this week. Extensive coordinator suggested that does not feel like he should tonight. He said that Jesus next question. I thought that was a good answer. He didn't say that right like the joke. It was a Joe. It's not we play every show that was but he knew he didn't say wasn't a dynamic player because he's one of the most dynamic point makers in the League as in your opinion. What are the giants say. I don't know come on not he didn't I mean it's not like he was like he's not a dynamic place but this is the kind of took. I mean just ridiculous ticket like you think he's good. I don't that's exactly how I took it anyway. It's kind of fun and I thought that was a good answer. Jetson New England on Sunday and they will be a big big underdog. I is it coach coach. Pat Shurmur would not commit to Eli started going forward here. He was asked about the quarterback spot with the media star to to this point and you know I'm not really ready to get into any of those conversations about any position. More Shurmur here comes the controversy. Is You know I understand. I understand I do Sherman and then went on with Mike. Here's part one of a direct question. Why are you the guy that can turn in his team around. I think we got. I think we have the right direction here. I really do then Mike would interject whereas into where's the improvement. Where is it well you know. I think we just mentioned that earlier. I said we made some. We've made some improvements in the offensive line nine twenty four on third down. I I get I get that I I listen to this show. Mike will allow. Oh Guy to answer questions without just jumping on him and no no no. You don't know what you're talking about. Mike Mike One Point. You don't do anything well. You Dreadful Phil you terrible Rick Defense Assembly ovens terrible. E Can't do a thing well. I think the answer to that bikes is that that what they've cattlemans and hiding something yeah well. We all knew it was gonna be a rebuild with this team really expect them to come out and play well. Six six over under number was I mean you hammered that under as fast as you could see what they need. is they need a shot of energy in the arm one player that will give it to that to your point. Though the one thing I would say is there are a couple of veterans and that secondary and they are atrocious atrocious. They really are generous. Jenkins Not Great Antoine Cover Guy Very Twenty seconds Jerry. Let's play some football. You know what I'm saying. I guess I do but those things observe not an excusable no Antonia Antonia thinking this week probably and if not this week I think this is the week man. You got to put put him out there. Maybe after the Patriots Right. What the hell are you wait for at this point enough. I got guys texts me essay giant fan sex we gotTA Kinda. Stop Stop. Stop Take the training wheels off. Take the little Schnelle out of the mouth. Take whatever you know. Whatever little Ma'am the thing is that you put in the baby's mouth pacify. Thank you to bank. You don't know what the HELL IT IS A. I don't know let's go. She's not apply right. What the hell are you mentioned a second plant right guys at won't be playing drew brees thumb surgery on at least six weeks and then rob will miss the rest of the season surgery on his elbow steelers reportedly acquiring Minka fitzpatrick from the dolphins for a twenty twenty first round draft pick and Jalen Ramsey agents. Tell the Jaguars he'd like to be traded. Adamant Colts Kicker quickly run out of time here. The rockies beat the mets nine. The mets got yeah I was going to say. Did you see her own. Ramsey on the go no because I need to go to Vegas to the raiders yeah. I'm sure John Goons GonNa want them. The Colorado breaks with a six run fourth inning highlighted by a couple of things starting pitcher Antonio since a Tele game-tying two run single snapped and forty forty four slide for him and Trevor Story. The tiebreaking Three-run homer both off of Stephen Matt Smith's now five out. That's wildcard spot. The cubs don't lose they've won five in a row beat threads eight to two cardinals over the nationals for two brewers padres five to one. Yankees angels tonight on the Fan Five fifty five Luis Severino expected back. I started the season opposed by Jose Suarez Yankees Ninety eight and fifty three Astros Ninety eight and fifty three Houston playing Texas. Thanks Jacqueline who get a Jalen Ramsey the jets nope well just won't bring him back but Patriots Oh God patriots you get him and then they can you know then they could really be locked locked loaded the play the Kansas City chiefs in the AFC championship game just how they're built. They're built to stop the chiefs man. That's that that whole thing that filled to point out like all the secondary players that they have up there. It's all for one reason and that's the stop. The track meet that his Kansas City now. I'd like to see the jets. Get on a man bring them in. It'd be awesome. Why not add another personality that group? I want a guy out there and win that Bitch metlife stadium going to trade him for what's the Tremaine Johnson and so he takes he takes day. Take your problem their air problem. You're going to have to give more money to Joe Ramsey. You're probably going to have to give a draft pick something back. They WANNA first round pick. Jalen Ramsey is a pain in the exaggerate round pick. You would think that Joan Rams use a pain in the neck.
