"How do you feel about crypto investors? Boy, the people who tried to buy the constitution constitution Dow. Did not work out in so many ways. First of all, they raised 40 million, but they kind of got screwed by what they call the gas fees. They were doing it in Ethereum. And unfortunately, it's very expensive. I didn't realize how high the gas fire. So much so in fact there was one journalist. I want to give him credit. Is it vice? I think. They bought $200, put $200 into so I should explain what's going on. Sotheby's, last week, auctioned off one of the 13 remaining print copies of the U.S. Constitution. Printed in that era. It went for 43 million to ironically a hedge fund CEO Ken Griffin, who, in all ties back in, whose hedge fund was the hedge fund that put money into Robin Hood, during the stock GameStop short sell. So it's all kind of coming around. And I have to think there was this a little bit of this revenge angle in him. So a couple of lessons learned one, it's no good to go into an auction when everybody knows that your top bid is. Yeah. And why Kenneth Griffin offered any more than a dollar more than the top the doubt folks could offer is beyond me, but maybe somebody else was in the business. Oh, a little big swing. I could throw in a few extra million, what the hell? Gotcha. You digital. The other thing is, you really got to consider the gas phase. So the vice put in 200 bucks. And effectively, you could get a refund, but you have gas fees going in and you had gas fees going out and ultimately, a lot of people ended up upside down on their contribution. So now they own oh, and that was another crazy thing, and thank you to vice for getting this all sorted out. When you bought into this, you got some purpose created cryptocurrency. Dollar sign people tokens, 1 million tokens per one ether ether donated. Those tokens were originally going to be, here's how we vote on where the constitution is displayed. Because they wanted to display it to the public, at least, they weren't going to tear it up into 12,000 pieces. There's something like that. $1 million web page. Yeah, right. Then because they lost the bid, they basically said that tokens worthless, people have been trying to sell it by the way, you were trying to sell their token. It's just everything wrong with the crypto environment. All bundled into one big blob, some people expected to be able to either flip their tiny ownership stake in the constitution. Anytime you got crypto, you got speculation. The flippers. Dollar people tokens for a profit. This did start happening over the weekend, according to vice, with some investors selling tokens on decentralized exchanges such as uniswap. It wasn't against the rules constitutional constitution to asset, yeah, that's okay. But then on Saturday, this past Saturday, constitution DAO announced that it would be moving away from the people token to a new yet to be created token called we the people and people would go by the wayside because we didn't get the constitution. And so that was all about that. And then a lot of people got upset because it cratered the price of their dollar sign people. Hundreds of angry messages on the Discord so then they changed their mind. On Sunday Night, we're going to go back to the original plan and now people were something we're going to create we the people. Oh my God. I have a very fundamental dumb question here. Which I tweeted, which is wouldn't this have worked on KickStarter? Yeah. We only put in the money if you actually do this. That would have been so much better than actually put in Fiat currency and we wouldn't have any gas and somebody said back to Twitter watch. That's just so web two, Jeff. So you don't get the speculators, the dumb money that's like yeah, what the hell? Yeah. So this is the process vice went through to contribute $200. First, we had to buy a theory about an exchange. We used coinbase. We bought $200 worth of Ethereum. Coinbase took a $3 fee. Then we had to send the Ethereum from coinbase to a meta mask crypto wallet to do this. We had to pay a $12 network fee. Then we had to send the Ethereum from juice box, which was running the constitutional DAO thing. So called gas fees vary wildly independent how busy the Ethereum network is at any given moment and the complexity of the transaction. Right now, gas fees and Ethereum are very high, and a highly complex operation could end up costing hundreds of dollars in fees. In our case, they paid a $75 gas fee to contribute roughly $75 to the project of the initial $200 we bought in the ether, $90 was eaten up and fees simply to donate. And then if you wanted to get a refund, you have to do that all in reverse. So to get our ether back from juice box, we'd have to pay gas fees again, meaning essentially the entirety of the amount invested be wiped out. Half of all the people who contributed are in this boat, according to constitution DAO. 17,000 donors, median donation sized $206. A significant percentage of these donations came from wallets that were made for the very first time, though, so that to your point, Jeff a lot of people go, oh, I'm going to get in on this one..

Israel are subjected to so. He's trying to create a boycott of ben and jerry's yesterday the executive director and chief investment officer at the florida state board of administration spe ash williams notified governor disentis at ben and jerry's parent company unilever have been added to florida's list of scrutinized companies that boycott israel. It's all cats so it's f. L. s. c. doesn't make a very good acronym less good. Yeah i li- twenty-second governor decided to send the letter. Mr williams requesting that the sba initiate the process of placing ben and jerry's parent company unilever on the list following the company's nonsense that it would remove its product prohibit the sale of ice cream in judeh and samaria which is hilarious and itself if a company is not seasons boycott of israel within ninety days of being placed the list it becomes subject to an investment prohibition and the state of florida will not contract with the company or its subsidiaries. And here's what What does it as a matter of law and principal. This state of florida will not tolerate discrimination against the state of israel or the israeli people by placing ben and jerry's fortune five hundred parent company unilever on our list of scrutinize companies at boycott israel florida's sending a message to corporate america. Then we will defend our strong relationship with the jewish state. I will not stand idly by as woke corporate. Ideologues seek to boycott divest from our ally israel so this war on woke ideologues. This whole thing that the a lot of republicans are doing which is like shh. Let's fight cancel culture by kind of like being kesslers being counselors. Yeah some of them. Think it's clever or funny and to me it. Just it just comes off as stupid. I don't know. I think it's just straight up hypocritical. I mean they're going for hypocritical. They think that they think they think. That's a burn. Guess yeah right but it's not it's just stupid right are there. They just opportunists. Like do you think they think it's a burn like they're like uh-huh sick burn. I'm gonna you guys want to cancel me but we're going to you. Wanna cancel people oriented. Cancel you yeah. And i don't think it works now i mean i. I don't know it. I don't think it harms them though because the people that i don't think that there are a lot of people out there who are really like ideological purists committed to anti cancellation calls like wait a second. But the boycott right. No i get it. I just know this is. This is clearly an over the top. Dick maneuver rain. That that you're what's over under dick over under dick doesn't the over under doesn't fit in this case but yeah i i don't know the sentences kind of if you've seen his recent appearances he looks it. Looks like somebody who's really sure he's going to be the next president. I think who's really short I don't know if he's really short short cow he's awful and he also i mean he's really corrupt and remember when he was running against andrew. Gillum he's he told flirty and who's black. He told floridians not a monkey it up. He's been awful awful awful on cove it obviously as people now. It's his vaccine. Rollout passed over essential workers and teachers targeted seniors. I where he has considerable support and it was in wealthier areas. He's already made their raised. Thirty one million. For his reelection campaign you got five million from chicago. Hedge fund manager kenneth griffin two point eight million from the republican governors association to sentenced to me looks he. He's my early favorite for who is going to get the nomination. Because it's not it's not going to be hawley. I just think the weenie factor is just too big with holly like physically. He looks like he just something about him that this kind of like the the. The classic republican nominee is a bombastic overconfident oath. And that's that's not who holly is. Although i guess george h w bush wasn't that person either although he would he was a war hero so veteran so that that that counted but now he really looks like he's holly has a very narrow head like his name so Tom cotton tom cotton. They both looked like they were caught in an elevator. Maybe they were riding the same elevator. Who's taller cotton or holly. I'm going to bet holly solar a. How tall do you think he is. Five eleven wow well dumb okay now. Tom cotton cotton. I'm gonna guess five ten. What do we got wilson. What he's six five. I was actually going to say six one. But i got a little scared okay. So here's my theory. And i'm right. He flare five. Okay here's what. I was thinking. How old how. How tall is holly five ten. You said five eleven. i eleven this. I thought this happened. They were riding an elevator together and jolted. There were some complications in the elevator. It shook cotton was behind holly and then all of a sudden they found themselves in between the elevator doors which closed on both of their heads. Now that sounds not realistic but for the significant height difference. I see okay like one on top of the other. I knew my theory rate. Tom cotton's neck is also quite long. He's a giraffe. Who's the person who really looks like a doesn't look like he looks like a gumby q tip or something then basis is the one who looks like an actual penis royal base business. Well that's that goes without saying tom. Cotton is sort of. Like if you took paul ryan and you and you put them on the rack for a couple of years. It's paul ryan tons. Gomer pyle like divided by mike huckabee plus height or at so for. Isn't that weird. We had to go back to a show staple penis yes the near post headline pena snakes. Pop up in. You guessed it florida. Then it shows a picture of this snake. That is now apparently prevalent so the the league like this. The mana kanda is constricting. The sunshine sunshine state. I liked that lead. It's a little if because you know the mana condos got some porn connotations if they wanna go there but Kanda is my anaconda. Don't want none. Unless you got buns hon. Right exactly i remember. I remember the pine. Yeah it's yes so then. It goes on fought california's flotilla of cpi wasn't phallic enough. Enter the penis snake similar a similarly manhood shaped invader. That's causing a hubbub in florida. Very little is known about these animals in the wild Florida herpetologist coleman. She he told creative loafing of the member evoking creature which first surfaced in the state two years ago authorities have captured a two foot long specimen at the c. Four canal near miami international airport and put it in captivity where unfortunately died of starvation. It's why did they starve it. Maybe they couldn't couldn't find anything eat. It's remains were subsequently sent to the florida museum of natural history where the genie analysis identify the penile critter as a case. Cillian hope. I'm pronouncing that right or a sicilian castilian Type of virtually blind legless amphibian that resides in the jungles of south america and asia. This particular species which is endemic to venezuela and colombia had never been observed in the us before creative loafing reported. What is creative loafing idea like a bread bread making magazine I have no This was not on my radar exclaimed. She he had a big we'd one day find a castilian in florida. So this was a huge surprise Quickly and everyone is a peanut snake. Dershowitz phallic countenance the noodle ship creature. Did they just do this too. Many times the noodles shape creature hans by using a pair of face tentacles to detect snails lizards and other prey Thankfully despite growing up to five feet long creature doesn't pose a threat to humans. So okay they try to laugh lines in that in that article but i have to save. The better job was done by this article by i f science so okay so this is a heads up. America penis snake has entered florida already. Kudos right for the pun man. Heads up the other. The other the the post also used the entered Thing than the pictures definitely better like this is a better on. Let me see. Where are we okay. Oh my gosh okay. So this is that looks like a finger looks. I can eat a fattened up. E. t. finger. You does that really gross it is. It is really gross. Castilians are a too often overlooked member of amphibians. That's perfect right. The society is supposed to write this kind of story but one species is currently making a name for itself..

"The Whitney biennial often by young and lesser known artists is by design thought provoking, sometimes even controversial remember the white artist. Dana shits depiction of Emmett till two years ago, the uproar caused while the next by annual schedule open is next Friday may seventeenth activists and museum -ployees are turning their attention to the people who run the museum itself as a source of controversy. This time recent reporting has uncovered that some of the Whitney museum board members have business and personal ties to let's say less than philanthropy companies. So how do some of New York City's most prominent cultural gatekeepers making spend their money? Joining me now to talk about the backlash that some Whitney museum executives are facing over their business activities and how artists. Lovers are responding is actually small staff writer at the online arts magazine, hyper allergic to WNYC's sees. Hi, hi, thank you for having me, by the way for the uninitiated. Why an arts magazine called hyper lyric. Well, our tagline is sensitive to our and its discontents. So we look at the areas between our and politics cool and back in November at the border between San Diego and Tijuana border agents, deployed tear gas canisters on hundreds of asylum seekers from Central America to prevent them from crossing into the United States. Well, folks, turns out those canisters were owned by one be Cantor's giant and the weapons manufacturing trade and vice chairman at the Whitney museum of art. So how big a deal is he Zach and his money to the Whitney museum. He is tantamount to the Whitney museum without him, the Warhol show that just went up that was very. A popular probably wouldn't have happened. He is giving millions of dollars to the Whitney. He's the Whitney's vice-chairman. There's about five of those. So he's one of the most powerful people at the museum Kandil on safari land. I see which multibillion dollar weapons manufacture. It sounds like it should be theme park, but it's really a weapons manufacturer safari land. Can you explain what they make? And where it has shown that most recently, right? So they're best known for creating tear gas canisters that are thrown at protesters activists, but also the refugees on the US Mexico border. They're thrown at people in Gaza. Then why PD also uses safari land weapons, then both activists and Zealand -ployees. I see have taken issue with Canada's even being on the board. What are they demanding? So they want Candice to step down. That's a call that we're seeing throughout the art world. But they also are looking to change how the museum is actually getting these board members who's getting on. Who how did they leave the board as well who gets to decide and earlier this year, the group decolonized this place held a town hall in which they voiced concern that the media's paying too much attention to Cantor's and not certain other members as well. Can you give us an example or two right? So a good example outside of the Whitney, for instance, recently MoMA, given a award to Brian moynahan who's the CEO of Bank of America and Bank of America is also a leading investor for private prisons. So basically, what are worlders are saying is if you're going to have a contemporary art museum that is also involved in politics that is part of a progressive agenda. You can't also be part of the prison industrial complex or war profiteering. So there's him at the Whitney. There's also a slew of other people. So there's Nancy Carrington crown who's married to. Stephen's crown and he operates General Dynamics, which is another very massive weapons manufacturer, Pamela Geeta Voss who's the sister-in-law of Betsy DeVos, the secretary of education. Kenneth Griffin who runs citadel investments, which is one of them was successful hedge funds in the world and also is giving money to private presents. It's one of the leaders, of course, civic, which is one of the most interes- operators of private prisons in the country. You know, more about the Pamela DeVos story. She a target solely for being related to that's DeVos. And I guess by maj, Eric prints, or did she herself, Pamela DeVos do things that are being seen as objectionable. Yes. So she's definitely done. Some objectionable things is of activists in artists. So she has she's best known as Pamela, Roland. So she has a fashion line. She dresses. His Betsy DeVos for quite a few events. She's also dressed Ivanka Trump, for instance. But it goes past fashion. So she herself has donated one point two five million dollars into politics towards Republicans that are running both her and her husband, Daniel DeVos have given two hundred thousand dollars to American crossroads which was a super Pac whose leader, Mike Dunkin, actually ascended to the White House after from one. So there are actually very direct correlation between what she's doing with her money, and what the Trump administration is doing themselves. I'm gonna play a clip of one of the curator's of the coming by any ill which opens next five. They were recently on all of it with Alison Stewart here on WNYC here is regime Hawksley addressing the issue on April twenty-sixth for us. I think the most important thing is that the artists really feel supported and that they feel kind of in some ways protected because. If there are protests. We don't know what may happen. And we want everyone to feel like the Whitney is really with you, and actually Jane, and I the people that invited you are really with you and stand behind you and are kind of here. No, not to defend you. I don't think we would need to defend them..

"The main strap hanger advocacy group, I'm working with them to pass the plan the governor. And I put forward to your question, Brian. I think right now in a world where it's important to get buy in from a majority of both assembly and the Senate, I think it's perfectly fair to say, how do we make this planet? Everyone can believe it, but the X factor here, and this is not getting enough attention, in my opinion is not only are we on the verge of the first ever coherent plan to fund and six the subways. Not only are we for the first time ever going to have congestion pricing and a much better and more fair congestion pricing plan than we've ever seen before. But on top of all that additional revenue got added to the equation since the governor and I put forward a proposal. We included three pieces congestion pricing internet sales tax and marijuana tax marijuana issues, obviously going to play out a little bit longer into the mix. That's come something in some ways bigger. Stronger than we had originally, which is real estate taxes to go at a an area where there's a real opportunity bringing big revenue for the MTA and in a progressive fashion. Because obviously, the vast majority of that money comes from the high end real estate purchasers, and there's a lot of them in the city and state. So I think this is actually ended up being a stronger plan over the last few weeks a plan that will have more sustainability and more money attached. And that makes it easier to accept some of the give and take that the suburban members have asked for because we have more revenue more options on the table is the is the real estate revenue the so-called tear tax on very high end second homes in the city. I heard that was having more political trouble in Albany, then congestion pricing. Is it that? Or is it something else? There's been a variety of options Pieta tear tax mortgage, recording tax. The transfer tax for real estate all of these are being looked at next match. Obviously, I respect the decision that the legislators have to make that's their job. But what I've said is we support the notion of go turning to whatever combination of those real estate taxes gets us the resources we need to fix the subways and again all of them follow a straightforward pattern. They disproportionately the money disproportionately comes from the wealthy who are making those high end real estate purchases in the city and we've seen lately you remember, of course, the single condominium for over two hundred million dollars. There's a lot of money flowing around. It's not being taxed at a high enough level. You know, I originally wanted to millionare's tax as the way to address the subway crisis. But in a funny way, Brian this is a version of that. It's another version of going after the fact that they're such ridiculous income inequality, and that government policies have helped the wealthy to get wealthier. Yeah. I've been. Saying there's plenty of money. It's just in the wrong hands. Well, here's an opportunity take some of that money from folks who have benefited disproportionately from government policies and put it back in the hands of working people by fixing the subways, by the way that guy who bought that two hundred fifty million condo. He's from Chicago. I think I don't remember his name. And he said, no, I'm not going to move to New York after all because New York is obviously now hostile to people like me, and because of the Amazon deal any response to him. I think that's I mean, I can't speak for any individual's values, but I can tell you this necessary. I'm sorry. I want to correct myself. He's not gonna move his company here, which is you know, has more economic implications for the city. I've heard a lot of people. Bluntly, wealthy people private sector people trying to stir this pot and the facts say otherwise right in the middle of some of the Amazon controversy, Google decided to double its workforce in New York City. I think you're to see a lot of other tech companies increasing their work. Because this has become now a true international cod were very proud of. That fact, we're gonna keep building that reality. You're gonna see a lot of movement going forward and our economy in other ways, four point five million jobs in New York City, the most we've ever had so yeah, I just find that to be an attempt by some ideologically to a obviously undermine progressive policies because in this city, we believe in things like progressive taxation. We believe in helping working people we believe in creating affordable housing and protecting rent regulated housing and some people who are wealthy and more conservative. Don't agree in those ideas. But if you're talking about how the broader business community is acting investing more and more in New York City, you anyone with eyes to see and you can see that right away. Just for the record Mary looked it up. The Chicago hedge fund billionaire in question is Kenneth Griffin. Also on transportation as we were talking about congestion pricing on your ferry system. Very popular with those who use it but expensive for the taxpayers. The citizens budget committee. Mission. Think-tank finds that the theories receive taxpayer subsidies that are ten times higher per rider than New York City transit riders received despite serving a ridership that is quote, highly seasonal and leisure oriented unquote says that translates as tourist heavy and says that per rider subsidy worked out to ten dollars and seventy three cents in fiscal year. Twenty eighteen citing the CBC report and is expected to balloon to more than twenty four dollars per trip on a plan Coney Island route announced earlier this year or twenty two hundred and fifty seven percent more than what's allocated to the average subway or bus rider your reactions. I disagree with the analysis to begin with because I think it's a very sighted. Now, I appreciate the citizens budget commission. I think they've done some important work over the years. But I think they have a fatal flaw they often misunderstand the value of government investment for the long haul. And this is a government investments along. Let let me sober up. Everyone right here. Brian eight point six million people today, we've added half a million people over the last fifteen twenty years, we're going to add another half million people over the next fifteen to twenty years ahead, and he wanted to things our existing transit system can handle all that is is someone who thinks marijuana's already been legalized in New York state. And it's smoking down. The fact is it is impossible to do what we have to do with the city. We don't expand mass transit options. So we have had a four pronged attack more bike options. More select bus service, which is those faster dedicated bus routes more light rail that's gonna be the beach, Brooklyn queens, and for the first time ever as citywide ferry system never existed for having I should say more. So for a hundred years in reality. It's necessary. One of the great coastal cities in the world. And we haven't had a coherent varies. System in generations. We're investing in the future. Now, Brian the x factor here is I believe in the next couple of years. We will come to agreement the MTA that a single swipe we'll get you from ferry to bus to subway or whatever combination. And I think that is going to lead to a lot more ferry usage all year round. But what we have to understand is if we don't open up options, if we don't use the one there's one road that is never full. It's the waterways, you know, there's no traffic jams if we don't start turning to that while we're on the pathway to add a half million people. We're going to really wonder in a decade or two what the hell we were doing. So this is an investment in the future. It's very popular. Now, go to the rockaways go to sound view in the Bronx ask people what it's done for their lives. But this is also about preparing for the New York City of the future. Let's take a phone call Matt and crown heights you on WNYC with the mayor not. Hi, how are you doing this morning? Thank you. I'm calling regards to a recent rise in in gang violence in crown heights, specifically related to a brand new renovated playground at PS. Three sixteen class Navid spent pretty disappointing because this playground had been under construction for a couple of years. It just opened it's beautiful. It's next to a great school in the neighborhood and within the first couple of weeks. Now, the weather's getting better. There's already been a couple of gun related incidents. There have been arrested, but the school had a couple of shelter in drills and entire communities feeling very uneasy about what's going on. We had a meeting last night. Councilwoman Laurie Kumbo with their she spoke a little bit about some action. They could take, but considering you know, we've waited for this playground for a couple of years not to mention its proximity to tourist destinations like the gardens and the book museum. There's a lot of concern about what the NYPD NYPD can do innocence specifically as well as the rise of gang violence in Brooklyn in general. Hey, Matt, I really appreciate you calling this in so, and I absolutely as a parent myself. I can understand how entirely frustrating would be to finally get a great playground, and then not feel it's safe. We have to fix that. I'm gonna ask the precinct commander to be directly in touch with you and your fellow parents. We'll get that going today. This is a problem. I think we can go ahead on by having a really clear strong police presence the by the playground to break that cycle years. Cussing? I don't know. I will hasten to add Ryan, I don't know the details of situations on taking match word for it. But but I want to say very clearly we're gonna make sure there's police presence to address that. Also, Matt NYPD has been really doing some extraordinary things in undermining gangs and really rolling up in the resting a lot gang members. Getting a lot of weapons in big big actions. Dozens dozens of game member that time lots of weapons being taken off the street. More and more intensive prosecution is happening working. With the DA's and with federal prosecutors. So I would say to you that there's a lot that you don't see. But that if you look systematically, major gang take downs have been happening over the last two years. More are coming very soon. But we'll make sure they're special attention on on that area that neighborhood and on a PS three sixteen Matt hang on. We're going to get your contact information. And Chris in Brooklyn, you're on WNYC with the mayor. Hi, chris. Good morning, Brian, Mr Mayor.
