White House under growing pressure for intel, answers on reported Russian bounties in Afghanistan
"The White House is under pressure to explain its actions following recent media reports that President Trump did nothing about US Intel months ago that Russia appeared to have bounties on the heads of American forces in Afghanistan. Trump maintains he'd only just learned of the Russia Taliban arrangement. Meanwhile, NPR's Michelle Kalman report, Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, says the U. S. Has been responding to Russia's threat in that region. Pompeo argues that no one should be surprised that the Russians are in his words engaged in Afghanistan in a way that's adverse to the United States, he says. That's nothing new. The president has been consistently aware. Of the challenges that Russia presents us, and he is aware of the risk in Afghanistan. That's why we have spent so much time over this past year at the president's direction to reduce risk. The Trump administration reached a deal with the Taliban earlier this year to set the stage for a U. S troop withdrawal. The U. S and Russia also issued a joint statement backing that

"The people a podcast about how dogs make our lives better. My name is John Bartlett. Bartlett Coast Meyrick helmet is an Israeli born. American illustrator writer are distant designer. He has written and illustrated Australian eighteen children's books and it's a frequent contributor to the New Yorker magazine including creating several covers for the magazine that you may have seen before actor. Initially being being afraid of dogs were young age my eventually had a change of heart and opened up her world two dogs. She realized how much dogs have to teach us how their natural comedians in how they make us better as people my rates a pleasure to have you here in the studio. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you so much so tell me about where you grew up. I was born in Tel Aviv. And then when I was four years old we moved to New York I a short stint on upper Broadway at the Hotel Monterey. I only bring that up because Shantelle. The artist also did a movie about the Hotel Monterey but when she was there it was kind of a CD and kind of it was CD single. SRO place when we went there. It was more elder family and older people sitting on the sidewalk on folding lawn chairs or full so there was. Is this wonderful thing about coming to New York in the fifties. It was an amazing time optimistic open and for me. Learning the language was incredible and the slang in the action of of New York. And did you have dogs growing up. No absolutely not there. Were No pets allowed in the house of any kind ever and no mention of animals and no liking of animals and they were they really were fiercely. Hated really tell me more about that. I had inherited terror mostly of dogs because my parents came from Belarus from little shuttles. And they're the story was and the truth was that they were very afraid of the dogs of the Non Jews who terrorize the Jewish Jewish children with their dogs. How much and how often I don't know but that's that's the legacy that's so you couldn't people clearly so and therefore for how could you possibly trust animal because you turn your head and as I say my book the Animal would rip your head off and so it stayed that way for quite quite a long time so that was kind of the idea of dogs? That's what you grew up thinking and your idea of what dogs were and as an adult later on. Did you heavy different feeling about dogs. Or how did your first dog come into your life. I probably had lessening of terror but still terrier presence but I was also becoming very very fascinated with dogs and drawing them looking at them so they became part of my storytelling which is a little bit odd. But at a distance they said they were completely enchanting and delightful and funny and with Pathos heart-rending and brave and all of those things but then my sister got a little Westie and a dog came closer. A A little bit closer but not that close and then you know as the world presents itself to you. My husband became very ill and we decided that the children in would be happier if there was a dog in the house that we really wouldn't be getting a dog for them but literally. Did I know that the dog would become my dearest friend and companion opinion and in a way lifesaver and tell me about the dog so this dog. His name was Pete. We were considering Einstein but after a few hours of knowing him we have. That's that's not going to workout workout. And so pete was the name probably from our gang or something like that just like a friendly happy name and I wouldn't get too close to him and I and I so I took him to the vet and the vet said you can have two ear drops that's not going to happen but little by little the became my you you know my pal and so he stayed with me all the time he was never more than a few feet away from me and really was my constant source of warmth and companionship. He was a mood elevator for the whole family. But very much so for me to and really gave me great solace through difficult times in your husband the still alive at that time. Yes so pete was I think that she will receive for five years in. I think we had pete maybe the last two years okay. I know that for me when I lost my husband. My dogs were very much a part of the last few weeks of my husband's life. They would sit literally it just staring at him or sit on the bed with them or sit on the pillow next to him and they knew something was up and then afterwards they got me out of bed every day. That got me out of the House and I stayed responsible in kind of engage in my life and in the world through my dogs and they helped me heal and so I totally get how that that might have been the case with you all and what kind of dog was pete he was an Irish wheaten okay so I know wheaten terriers I don't but I don't know that I know Irish. We very close cousin. You mentioned that he was sort of like a cartoon. He wasn't cartoony. It was kind of like a spoiling. You dog you know. He jumped up on all fours and it was a fluffy he really really was a cartoon and he immediately became a subject that I would draw so he was constantly getting dressed up in all kinds of things. He wasn't getting dressed. I was dressing him. He was very docile and and didn't mind and probably now. I should be embarrassed that I made him wear so many costumes. Because it's not really respectful of him but that's how it was then so he was a great visual asset and ended up in many of my paintings very much amuse very much amuse. Yeah he amused and he was amused. Now Pete was on the cover of the New Yorker. He he certainly was. And we'll sell Francois's Wuli who's The cover editor New Yorker the other day and. She said that they moved offices. In the first thing she put up was that cover hover and she said okay. Okay now. I'm home so you published a beautiful book illustrations. A few years back called beloved dog. Tell me about that. The premise was that I had done. So how many paintings of dogs over the years for magazines for the New Yorker for interview for many books children's books adult books that this would be a compilation compilation of the best of the ones that I loved. And then I would write an essay with illustrations of course of why my so obsessed with dogs and what is it about them mm-hmm and so you don't have to explain much to people who love dogs and there are many just. It was a wonderful opportunity to look at photographs of famous people with dogs to to take a look at more dogs and photograph them and just to be engaged with the idea of that sense of you. Really forget all your troubles when you're with the dog and and for me combining walking and looking dogs you know that's the greatest occupation absolutely especially in a city like New York. What was it like having a dog like Pete in New York City? Well you know when you walk a dog. The wonderful thing is that you don't even look at the faces of the owners fame. Look at the dog me. Say what's his name or well. Her name chat about the dog. Forbid you triple your time of what you expect to be outside which is also wonderful. The more time you I mean if you have the time obviously and if I'm minorities to my studio definitely have the time to leave the studio and walk around so it's just a way of engaging with the world and with people and feeling feeling grounded having a purpose having job to do and the serendipity of who you run into all my work is about. That is the serendipity of what I see the day most of the time. I don't know what I'm going to be doing. I know the general subject but I know exactly when I when I go outside for a walk and I find that Sofa on the street. Read that amazing looking person with incredible outfit and the fashion or and or anything then I say Aha now. I know what I'm painting and how I'm going to work that into the story that I'm telling so the dog was my was my conduit and was my was my walking companion. I love that now pete. Left you few years. Here's back fuzzy. About the dates essentially seven eight years. Okay and how did he pass. He was.

"Hey Katie Hi ben so what's going on with you this week so this week as we are recording this things are pretty quiet but the day that we are released thing this episode is the Chicago Marathon which I by the time you listened to this will have run in still in the future tense as we record this tends to wipe me out and that will be on Sunday which is normally are released a so as is tradition we will be re releasing an old favourite episode of Mine nine the the calman runners episode it's a little bit marathon themed yeah the the common brothers were twins right sorry okay then you're GonNa wish me luck while I was trying to think of the right Way To say it I I it's not breaking a leg I hope you will have had a good luck run now that doesn't work okay I'm just GonNa give him on that and say good luck thanks enjoy Hey Katie Hey ben thanks for giving me a call man I'm sorry that's a horrible inside joke but you're about to get it you are listening to linear digressions okay I swear this genetic dad jokes they just come out we're talking about Kalman filters and so that was my horrible horrible introduction to this episode thanks Ben I think that really that really added a lot yeah we're talking about a common filters this is something that is was near and dear to my heart this weekend so I- I underwent a athletic experience which is that Iran my first marathon over the way congratulations thank you we didn't even talked about this before the show congratulations that's awesome I know right I am slowly recovering my ability to walk was still one of the things about running a marathon is so first of all I have never run a marathon before this is my first one so this was a new experience and one never quite knows what to expect when you're training for a marathon the training process you have these progressively longer long runs at the top out at twenty miles but as you know a marathon twenty six miles and so it's fundamentally kind of dip Colt to know how long it's GonNa take you finish a marathon because on the one hand you have your training experiences but on the other hand they don't generalize perfectly to the Shula vent because the actual event is longer I have a quick question for you about that 'cause I only can run one mile actually I ran a mile and a half straight the today I think I have further to go is there is there a reason that you only run twenty miles when you're training is because you don't want to just totally kill your body yes it's a risk of injury thing and so but one of the things of course there's a little bit scary about running a marathon is is that once you pass the twenty Mile Mark Your the in unknown territory and you might completely fall apart and running a marathon around mile twenty three twenty four twenty five is is not a superfund experience but anyway I you know you're out on the course you have three and a half four hours to think very deeply about all kinds of things and one of the things that you start obsess about a little bit is when am I going to be done right toe how fast am I running help as my running based on like my own sort of the way that I feel right now I don't wear a watch on some people obviously if you're wearing a watch you might have a little bit more data than than I had when you're running about how fast you're going and you also have a mile markers that you usually see and if you're fortunate enough they might have clocks that are next to them and you can see okay I'm at Mile Fifteen and it's two hours and forty seven minutes or whatever so as you're running this earth on you're you're collecting data on your position and you're collecting data on your on your rough speed and you're trying to use that to figure out win the torture will end Bingo Bingo that is exactly what is in it and a little bit like how am I doing like if I have a goal of coming in and under four hours there's like an my on track for that and these are all kind of messy measurements to be making number one my velocity measurement is just my own feeling of how fast I'm running which which is actually pretty yeah I mean it's pretty okay actually after you've been training as much as I have but like I could easily be off by fifty second is a mile or something that would that would that would be easy to understand the second thing is that you have the information that you're getting from the clocks along the course but there are a few things that can be tricky about trusting those measurements one is you don't know if the clock is exactly at the mile marker that says it's so the clock can be sort of off by a few seconds just based on whether it happens to be a few feet down the road you know you see the clock coming as as you're running down the street and so like what time do you take as like the time of the year crossing Mile Marker Eighteen and the biggest one of all is that this was fairly big marathon and it took me I think five or so minutes to even cross the starting line from when the clock restarted and so there's little chip timers in your Bib so the the five minutes kind of subtracted off at the end but all of these all these clocks have this unknown fudge factor added onto them so you know I don't I don't even really know my time I just know that this time like probably four or five minutes longer than I have actually been running so there's all these information about each of them is like not super great as we're trying to figure out what I'm going to finish because I had a goal of finishing in four hours trying to figure out what we finish is actually fairly complicated kinda like projection problem against so how does this time why in with Coleman filters which our topic for the day and you know it doesn't it's just me talking about my marathon because that's what marathoner students they get really obnoxious about it now has a lot to do with Kalman filters okay okay yeah yeah so common filter is actually the kind of algorithm that we deal with a situation exactly like this where you have yes you have sort of this system that can be in particularly it's used for systems that are evolving in time so you you're kind of like collecting information on the system as it's going and you have some idea about the underlying dynamics of the system so that would be sort of like for me how fast I feel like I'm running and then you also have external treatments that you're getting those can can have significant amounts of noise that are associated with them so I have my internal idea of how fast I'm moving in sort of wear A. and the course and that's kind of noisy because I'm trusting my own like sense of how fast I'm running in you know that can be off getting these external measurements which are the clock measurements which I know have biases and also there's some some random variants do them so those are not super helpful either so it sounds like kind of from a big picture perspective you have a bunch of inputs all of which have some amount of noise to them and the funding mental problem that you're trying to solve is you're trying to extrapolate and so if you've got a little bit of noise early on in the course and then you extrapolate really far out in the future from those earlier measurements a small amount of noise earlier will be a fairly large discrepancy by the time you get to the end of the I so that's fundamentally the problem isn't it yeah yeah I mean as I'm going absolutely I'm getting more and more information about how I'm actually doing so for example at the beginning of the course I know that people are packed in really tightly it's kind of hard to maneuver around you kind of have to go with the flow of like what everybody else is running and depending on where you start maybe this'll be slower faster than your sort of normal starts at the beginning the beginning of the race is like a super weird time the trying to time yourself because you're really worried about like making sure you're not going to bump into anybody and making sure you're not running too fast and so I went back and looked at some of my Switzerland is running fairly slow at the beginning half of the race mostly because I didn't want to over do myself and I was running a little bit cautiously yes so I guess the the way to solve this problem is the to refine your extrapolations as you gain more data and so presumably up to find some way of dealing with that noise and humans really good at that humans are really good at kind of just taking a fuzzy problem solving approach to problems like this but with computers unique to actually implement some kind of algorithm that accounts for all of that and I think that's where we that's where we get to calm filters right right so what a common filters going to do is it takes your ah sort of these equations that describe the underlying dynamics of the system would be something like my position velocity and the fact that they're related mile marker number one I'm crossing the line what I think is let's say a nine minute mile and so I think that it mile marker number two I'm going to be at eighteen minutes and so then when I show up at Mile Marker number two I might see something like oh it's seventeen minutes and forty five seconds and that might be because the the clock is a little bit misplaced from where like the true to mile marker is it might be because I've sped up it might be because I'm not paying very close attention it wasn't actually nine minutes for the first mile but it was more like eight forty five like who knows there's all kinds of things that could be the could be going on in there but I say like okay so now I've what I think is probably going on I have something like an eight forty five or maybe like an eight fifty mile my second mile so based on that I think that it mile number Sirri I'm GONNA be at whatever number I think it is and so as you accrue more data points even though each of those data points has noise you start to converge on a better solution than you would have had if you had just taken one of the data points by itself and then tried to extrapolate out you know all the way at the end so another application of Kalman filters might be if you're trying to solve the trajectory and correct for it of like ballistic missiles or something like that something where I mean basically a ballistic missile is running a marathon it's just a different form of Shen and there's no human inside thinking oh this is so painful it does have a a couple of other dimensions as well it's got the left and right dimension I've been down dimension it's also got distance and it has to kind of find a way to correct properly and well enough overtime ideally better and better over time that by the time it actually gets to its destination it's right on point yeah in fact I think one of the first late large scale applications of of common during was in the World War Two Cold War era when they had to solve the exact problem of of knowing where missiles were flying because obviously that can be tricky measurement to make it's a very distance and there are lots of atmospheric effects in their win and there's all kinds of stuff that can go on another application more modern but one that's near and dear to my heart.

Ojos prime minister expressed disappointment at the deadlock voting against leaving without a deal and for an extension to not solve the problems. We face. Nearly a quarter of the members of her own party voted against her deal alongside opposition parties. Some politicians want to harder Brexit with the UK fully out of European institutions such as the single market and the customs union, the fate of the vote was sealed when the chief legal officer to the government. Geoffrey Cox indicated that the UK could have difficulties leaving the temporary backstop arrangement put in place to avoid a heart booed with island. Risk as I said in my letter of the thirteenth of November remains on changed. Many feel MRs may hasn't provided a good enough ons to the issue of how to do with the UK's border between the Republican island, which is in the EU a northern island, which is part of the UK and would leave the EU if Brexit went ahead this morning.

But it was not expected that you would lose by another three margin in this case one hundred and forty-nine aids joining us to help make sense of all the latest twists and turns and has Kalman's is Joan Pete are Brexit editor through the biggest feats anybody government history is quite a bad performance for Theresa May. And that's to eighteen succession that she hasn't been able to get through on her deal. What does it mean for the Brexit process? And what happens now? Well, at least in theory Brexit space to happen in in two weeks time, but as the prime minister said after yesterday's defeat today parliament will vote on whether men B's want to leave the EU with no deal, and they're expected to say, no, they do not want to leave with new deal and tomorrow, they're going to vote on whether since they don't want to leave with deal, and they failed pass the deal the British government should ask for an extension of the timetable beyond March twenty nine, but new Brexit would also be very disruptive for the EU. And it's a Britain takes that post ability off the table trees as Isla is saying that drastically damages her negotiating power in. What is clearly very sticky end game with the EU. Yes. I mean, the argument about new deal is going on more or less than prices began. When Theresa May herself famously said new deal is better than a bad deal. I think the problem with that was that new deal has always look very damaging for the UK and potentially damaging all safer, the European Union securely for for our land on the the the problem that has led to is it nobody on either side really has taken seriously the risk that they would be a new DO Brexit. So it hasn't really worked as a bargaining tactic. I mean, many NPR said you have to be willing to walk away from the table. If you're gonna get a good deal out of the European Union. But actually, the EU never took the seriously as threat, and I think the fact that envy's are about debate not to leave. They deal demonstrates their right? Not to take seriously the threat it could still happen by accident. But nobody actually wants to leave with no deal. Well, let's look at another way in which pain is extended that is this idea of extending the negotiating period to enable the government to carry on having this tussles with the EU without a deal yet in place, assuming this motion passes, and it comes before the house of comes on Thursday. How easy is that to achieve? The signs from the you are that they don't want to be too big to be responsible for a crash out Brexit, so in a sense once orig- government puts requests for an extension. The us is always done to grunt, but they will be quite they will do. So with some reluctance, and I think they will say we don't want it to be a long extension. We want to know what is to be used for we want some assurance from you that you have some plan for rectifying some form of Brexit deal. But at the end of the day, I do think when they meet next week. They will say yes, you can have maybe two months, maybe three months. There is going to be some discussion about whether actually should make the extension a lot longer. But I think it's much easier to do it. At least this stage on the base of any two or three months and way, does this leave British politics and the fragmentation it was seeing a lot of longstanding political groupings as a small third force. That's. Emerged in parliament pro e u discontent with the existing leaderships. Do you think this is a sign that something is changing in our politics? Politics is certainly in considerable turmoil. I mean, the traditional sort of British stability has been built Burr run, the two main parties labor in the conservatives who actually increase that share the vision, the twenty seventeen election, but the Brexit is sort of cost across that stability because the bigger divide now is between those sport remain in those support leave and both main parties a completely divided split from top to bottom on this issue. New the new grouping, the independent group is also a very strong remain or ended group, and I think almost anything could happen in British politics within either party over the next year.

"What you hope when you run the football is that Kalman nation in then boom, you get which and yes, you point out my defense does he get huge credit? But I told you on Friday when I made my prediction. This is a bad match up for Seattle. They did lead the NFL in rushing. My defense does one thing. Really? Well, it will take the run away. It took away. Drew Brees at toy Camerin in Mark Ingram, and it just flat out shut this down. Because at halftime. They had twenty two rushed yards wind up with seventy three for the game. And Chris Carson who's a thousand yard rusher. He gets thirteen carries for twenty yards. Really? That's that's impossible. Here's the thing. When you make that thought of concentrated effort to take something someone's runaway or you make that kind of concerted effort to take something away. You have to open yourself or something else. You do. We're gonna talk about the ravens situation when they played they played seventy bags. Well, when you play that skill you open yourself up for something else. Whether or not the opposing team can take advantage of what you open yourself up for is something entirely different. So to me the key reason this team plays the run. So well is those two inside backers I can just fly to the football. They recap Vic at the line of scrimmage because even if you think Chris Carson has a step all sudden he doesn't have a step in. It's a one yard game because somebody Vander esh or Jalen Smith is at his ankle on him down skip early. The ballgame the first possession. It was third into. And for what other reason, you're the number one running team in football skip it, they stopped me. At what I'm good at can live with that. I'm not throwing the ball. Why would you throw the ball? Because now. You can miss the Cowboys or this to run about this story too. And they won't go with their bread and butter. And so now, you got him thinking that we took them out of what we know they want to do Frade of us guys. Let's keep eating. Let's keep putting so now you got your hands full when you really should. So I'm gonna say this one last time about the man on the Dallas Cowboys week no quarterback in NFL history through his first three years has had a better completion percentage than back Prescott. No quarterback has more game winning drives over the last three years. Then Dak Prescott has no quarterback except the one in Foxborough has won more games over the last three years. Then back Prescott has a now. He's up to thirty three wins in three years with his first playoff game. And that quarterback Dak Prescott threw for three hundred plus and three touchdowns against Aaron Rodgers. But did not win his first playoff game. But he outplayed Russell Wilson in this game seventy four to seventy and QBR. And here we go. On a if you don't mind me asking, you say that gives the defacto he's the most important. Why couldn't he do this? In zeke's absence. When he misses his games last year. He played pre. No, no, no, no layoffs. He got to the playoff digital. I just need to know if he's the guy without Zeke. Why couldn't he do this? Well, he didn't have him for six games. And they had the cloud hanging over the team. Oh in a horrendous backup left tackle at Atlanta. Who gave up eight sacks? I don't know. This team is much better obviously has more of its pieces in place. Here. He goes thirteen wins nine wins ten wins. Plus a playoff win. I don't know. Let's see. Let's see how many thirteen Zeke led the league in rushing sixteen hundred six second year when third your innoc- east Tennessee six who led the league rush on. There's a reoccurring theme here. Okay. They don't make the playoffs Zeke methinks game. There's a reoccurring theme. I'll know if you can see my recurrent theme is who's led all the football in game winning drives in the fourth quarter. And overtime. It's my quarterback. Does that not count to those not contribute to ws? Yes. So did it again. Okay..
