"The looser interpretation prevails then. Yeah let's say something you know. Some remains are found are they. Will they be immediately handed over or will will. Will there be any chain of custody. Where caliber is apply. It's going to be. It's going to require a legal battle. You know obama. The legislation signed by. Obama is not doesn't expand nag bridges said in this particular case. I'm ruling so it was a presidential. I think i think he signed a congressional legislation and in february of two thousand seventeen thirty tribal members from the retailer and the coleville yarmuk on the wound up on all of the above head to washington and they take dozens of boxes containing various bits of kennewick man. Back here to washington state and as they wanted to do in one thousand nine hundred ninety six twenty one years before they finally bury the ancient one in an undisclosed location. And is there any kind of tribal competition for jurisdiction. Is there a sense because the tribes where they are now their reservations for the various tribes. Do not really echo or represent like reservations. They were. yeah the older over here. The spokane indians are a lot of them. Were combined into a territory was forced on mixed reservations. And so is are there. I did everyone come together in peace. Yeah there's no reporting on any kind of disagreement among the tribes. I think they all were looking for the same victory and they all agreed. you know. we'll just. We'll just bury the ancient riverbank somewhere. The main thing is that nobody knows where so. It can't be desecrated and no one came up arizona. this was confined to northwestern. Yeah there was a there was a. There's some kind of governing council of these five tribes. That was that was kind of the speaking for the tribes that became the legal arm of the right up the battle and the political. Npr battle as well. So in this case we all had our cake and ate it to every i guess or another way. Everybody's mad scientists got their study but you know lost the bone so further advances in technology may not be able to be retroactively applied to the kennewick man discovery the tribes had to put up with the twenty one years in indignity of the ancient one being poked and prodded before they were finally able to rebury it but again interesting case no no bad guys the people of goodwill trying to do their job and just kind of interesting philosophical debate about where that historical bright line is where We're grandpa becomes a fossil of the corps of engineers still. I wonder if you're looking for a bad guy you know i'm always looking for a bad guy. And feels like the corps of engineers. They can take the heat right. It's like the bureau of land management. Everybody's mad at him to sounds like you have an existing beef seems unrelated to kennewick. Now i read the monkey wrench gang. At a very a very impressionable. Age and.

"Though the bones were all scattered you can tell from. Calcium carbonate forming on the bone. Which side was down for the longest amount of time before they were disturbed by the river and they can tell by how ep was what position he was in and he appears to be in a position where he was deliberately placed there and then buried science so he had friends even though he was. You know an alaskan exchange student and a culture of burial. yes people. There had a culture of burial. So that's interesting. There is a cultural connection to whoever lived there. Even he was not then. Wow and they reconstruct a figure of him if you go to the smithsonian to this day you can see i. I don't know if it's in the office or if it's on display all the time but there is a you know. They decide what his face might have looked like based on modern day. I knew in chatham islander physionomy and features and so they've sculpted a clay face over and basically a big kennewick man mannequins you can stare into his laws and think about what he must have seen. The tribes are not happy about the way the legal battle has ended. And they're not happy when the science comes out not just because once again people are poking and desecrating our stuff but There's some criticism of the science like there has been no the dna. Testing has not been conclusive. It hasn't come back yet from a lab in denmark. At the time the 'cause he was still a a science in its infancy. Yeah this is deepening. This is now kind of the mid two thousand ten so not infancy but But yeah it's it's you know five to ten years before the present day and we know. Dna testing can tell us a lot more now than it did even a few short years ago exactly and the fact that this study is all just based on the shape of its skull. Really you know. Rubs people rubs there the scientists legal opponents wrong. Yeah because they're saying misused right for so many. You can't really be a an american indian. You're not native american. Look at the shape of your head. You'll get your brow. Yeah look at the incisors. Here come on. You couldn't have done math. So this kind of is a little bit queasy. And in fact the story does not end this. The long the deep dive long-form smithsonian article ends happily with a with a reconstructed kennewick man greeting visitors in the offices of the american museum of natural history and the small-minded tribes thwarted in fact that was not the end of the store a year after the smithsonian wrote this paper the danish dna study came back and said yes there is substantial genetic similarity between kennewick man and the current inhabitants of the region. That in fact you know because the house leeann alleys argument was always yes. It's what you said yes this is the ancestor in a kind of general way. But he's no more closely an ancestor of the mattila or the coleville than he is to You know the people of tear it off waco. There's right he has stuff in common with all modern man. There's no special reason why they should have a claim and the danish findings actually disagreed substantially. but can we. Can we trust the danes. you think. there's a danish conspiracy. I asked myself that question all the time. i don't. i'm not saying this. Particular group of dane imagining dana step delegation being glad handed at a washington state casino and getting like rooms then buffet comte at suddenly coming back with. No i mean this is just newer newer science and according to this study yes like there is a definite cultural link between or cultural. Sorry yeah definite. Genetic link between the cult the between the modern and canada rickman and the problem is that nagpur requires cultural affiliation as well. and there's no no burial goods and the and the seafaring culture seems to to argue against it like nagpur has written with like a list of like nine kinds of of ways. You could connect a relic with With a current tribunal because the law anticipates not just as infighting between scientists and tries but infighting between tribes saying. Yeah well we we were on this land. Hey buddy like we were called the people you were called the from across the river This was our land. So it's the anthropology versus the paleontology and how they how they mutually support or don't support one and the law requires there should be a preponderance of the evidence. Show your cultural affiliation. But there's kind of a A loophole that says that allows for a looser evidentiary standard if that fails and athletes up in arms about this. He's like if this if this holds. There will never be another study of an ancient american artifacts again because the rules are now so loose that you know a modern tribal government could could claim just about anything. What's crazy. maybe that's not so bad. We are trying to create a scientific like a society at least at least whole not maybe holy but as a society founded in scientific principles but scientists so political evidence can be politicized based on a who does the research how the findings are published. What as you said cherry picking and i it makes because we we often use science as shorthand for what we imagine is truth right and and and an iron clad scientific method that isn't tainted by politics but of course that doesn't maybe never existed and certainly certainly not in each individual case. Yeah right even if there's a trend toward it as a result and as you're is you're mentioning the social climate has also changed a lot since nineteen ninety-six. If you're going to err on the side of somebody it's not going to be caliber wielding scientists against tribal elders anymore. You know and especially by the time two thousand. What did you say this was happening in re within the last decade. Yeah two thousand sixteen. Yeah okay so twenty years later everything is different. Yeah in this was december two thousand sixteen. This would have been in the waning days of his term. Trump has been electric has already won the two thousand sixteen election. Oh wow you were on twitter at this point so on on one of his twitter since two thousand eleven. No that's like i obama term. Two thousand nine. Wow sex six. Maybe before. It was even called twitter. Yeah you you are. On the beta test version which was just called live journal. Obama signed legislation ordering the newseum to turn over the bones back to the local tribes based on what mostly based on the new evidence out of out of denmark that there is some genetic connection which is the whole lynch pin of the scientists argument right and we can use this looser language in nagpur to get around the fact that it's just too old the show any cultural affiliation and the scientists are right like it's gonna be very hard to do exhaustive studies of future prehistoric north american remains If the if the you can't make an agreement with.

"There's like three chapters about kennedy teeth. There's a full chapter about the algae on the phones. The findings though are fascinating. And i say this is somebody who doesn't even care never heard of kevin man. It was kind rooting for the tribes. I'm like whoa first of all the the Physiologically from what they can tell He appears to be most closely related. To the i knew the original inhabitants of the know the inhabitants northern japan right kind of a bearded right polynesian looking people. Not not as easy attic as you would expect on the japanese archipelago. Also the the chatham. The chatham islanders from the new zealand region so far away on the pacific rim a seafaring. People of ancient. But you know not quite idiotic appearance polynesians basically this kon-tiki and this is the this is a case that is being made in alaska by a lot of polynesians who have moved to alaska. And sort of claimed claimed a close cousin ship with the with the coastal tribes of of alaska both the aleutian and also the panhandle tribes the plunkett in the haida An and i'm not sure what the genetic rationale for it is. But the cultural rationale at cases being made you can also learn a lot about his specific life. Like you can basically get kennewick. Man's biography from looking at his bones so the appearance of the bones initially made the paleontologists say this cannot possibly have bears resemblance to they thought it was. They thought it was a caucasoid personnel. I mean they thought it was literally. I why now they're kind of saying caucasoid inasmuch as the i knew were caucasoid. Yeah so it validates. The their initial lee coincidentally validates original legal arguments. Which is there's no real tribal connection here. You guys can you guys can take a seat We know now that kennewick man or the one had a shoulder injury from repetitive. Use presumably It looks as if his arm went up and down a lot so a hatchet rather sphere maybe up and down a lot but a spear for like marine hunting and fishing. This guy's this guy's getting seals and sea lions and salmon on the bank of the river and he also injured that shoulder. he has a. He has a shoulder injury that ended his major league career. Just for but his right side is really built up and the left side as well from the way you would start the left leg from the way you would step ahead with the opposite leg. Yeah like as if you were throwing a baseball team having having your occupation like tariff form your skeleton in that way i mean i guess a blacksmith. Probably you think modern men in nine thousand years people wouldn't be able to look at me and be like oh java programmer right like boy. His his left cheek is much less developed than his right. Well i used to draw with pencil so much as a kid. I always had this little calcium left index finger. And in fact person i would often smear so if i had showered there'd be graphite all over the keel of my hand from dragging it across the paper so i guess this is just the equivalent of that but it lasted for nine thousand years. If you look at the tips of my fingers. Mike guitar fingers over here so different from guitar fingers over here. It's the string hand gets Callous than flattened is that right or does the does the freeport hand get flattened. In the i dunno. I'd let you feel my fingers. Can if you want you. My dad in the nineteen thirties. When he was in college went to her. I i'm sorry mid forties. He went to a a meeting of the the wobbly that was being held down on the waterfront in seattle and there was a guy stationed at the door. It's one of these smoke-filled rooms where they're all by these are like tough wobbly. The real like ragged. And there's a guy station at the door. And as the as my dad and his two friends walked up he said. Let me see your hands and they they. He grabbed their hands and looked at them and two of the guys he said. You've never worked a day in your life. Get out of here. You can't come in here because they had you know soft college boy hands and he looked at my dad's hands and said all right. Now you're a real working man and brought him in well. My dad had. My dad was on the washington crew. Yeah and so. His hands were covered with calluses from the or. I have snow shovel. Calluses here probably similar. But i don't know if it could get me into a wobbly as other two men were killed of course the killed and thrown into the harbor. They also i mean very small. Bones must've been attacked. You asked it. Every bone was there. They were able to determine yet. Surfer's ear from repeated immersion in water. So again a marine fishermen swimmer. Here's a mysterious cul. Because he has these depression fractures one kind of on his forehead in one further. Back over the dome of his head. And what's mysterious about them. Is that about half of all ancient american skulls. Have these no matter where they find them. Are they from head binding as a child. I don't think so the the the two but they're fractures that he'll put the two competing. Hypotheses are somebody you just get hit with iraq because people used to fight by throwing rocks each other a lot back then all over the continent or like people who were hunting with like a bolo. But we're not great at both related. Mishaps they can look at the prevalence of different chemical isotopes in his bones this has come up on omnibus before and to learn about his diet they can tell that he was not eating the abundant local game of washington state. In fact he was eating. marine animals. Like oshii anik marine. Yes and he's all the way up in was he's in kennewick on the river and apparently his source of water was is like glacial meltwater like the isotopes match alaskan water. So the idea. He's an old man the hypothesis the scientists are. Yeah that's kennewick. Man is a long way from home. He some kind of coastal hunter off on his own following the populations of sea lions or whatever it is he eats and his people are part of a coastal migration from japan. That happened in boats may before the later land bridge migrations but in a wow whoa before lambert. So but he but in his life he lived most of the time in coastal waters and happen to die far from home up a river up a river although not alone apparently the body the bones appear to have been deliberately buried..

"Your in your impression if it had remained a local issue issue if the local paleontologist and had brought him the smithsonian and it had stayed in academic question Like a tweedy academic question would the tribes of felt like they needed to band together. This i wonder if they still would have. Because you know this largely becomes. It's it's a symbolic conflict and the symbolism grows as it starts to appear in the new york times and the wall street journal for sure but even on a local scale i mean the principal here would be We don't want this studied scientifically at all. We're going to get these turned over to us. As federal law now demands we are going to secretly reburied kennewick man as as a as our ancestor deserves. It was funny it very quickly. The tribe start calling him the ancient one while as if he was a family member. A know a figure from their from their lower in their history whereas all the scientists were saying kennewick man the way you would say neanderthal manner crow magnum and he's a a sample of a scientific genus but it seemed to me that the tribes because the corps of engineers symbolically was the federal government. The thing that the tribes had had been right you know in opposition to throughout their history and so the symbolism of it was you know and especially that the army and the united tribes might as well be the cavalry. it's the successors to custer so it always seemed like the symbolism got you know got blown up because it became a you know it was no longer just like. Oh the local nez pearson. This guy a little one room office. What a twist happened very quickly. Which was the army quickly announced that they would hand over the results. To the over the the relics bones to the confederation of tribes for reburial the army immediately agreed with the tribes. And you know when asked about this. The funny thing is i'm working for a one of the best treatments of this. It appeared in smithsonian magazine before. Actually the end of the story kind of midway and the story and because it's smithsonian magazine the smithsonian curator of the heroes advancing science here. And you know we've done more than anybody else to help repair we've repatriated thousands of these of these relics. You know we're the good guys here. A lot of native american exactly and what happened is the army said. Hey look this is just. This is the right way to handle this. We're just we're just going by the book here. And the scientists said no your. You're already in trouble with the tribes for all these local land administration issues related to dams and salmon fishing in all the above. Like you are literally throwing them a bone is that is that really the case they made. That was the that's what the scientists said. The army had a conflict of the army. The army had pr interest in making nice with the tribes and the army does not care about kennewick man. The army just wants to build the dams that wants to build and blow. The dancer wants to blow up without the pesky tribal elders right. So they're like. Hey here's our ceremonial gift to you. We love you to take the ancient one. But let's talk about those salmon number. It's really expensive to put a fish ladder in our local damn latest dam. Or at least this is what chatters and douglas ouseley. I call him james before his. Douglas say this is. What chatters douglas owls lee alleged fees related to the ouseley that made lsd. Is it the same. Same family ca story gets more and more interesting. I'm going to guess no the smithsonian makes the case that yeah look we return all these things but i do an exam to make sure we're returning it to the right people's let's do that and chatters and outlier on the record is thinking this these remains do not resemble local tribes like there's no genetic or cultural connection here with me understand why the tribes are airing on the side of this. Is our guy right but this is not your guy and is it because the theory at the time was that waves of migrations Meant that the people that currently or you know two hundred years ago lived in that region. Were yes were more recent arrivals so this this is what happens. They've already made a cursory examination of the remains and when they later do a more detailed examination yes. Their findings are This is from an earlier wave of immigration and migration. I guess and as a result actually is no culture. We can see why you would think. Hey you know old bones on on what was once your tribal land. We get it but look we can show you with science that you don't need to worry. This is the ancient one is not your affair. Go about your business. He's aren't the droids you're looking for. Let us show you with. Silence exactly goes wrong. There's no history of trying to show indigenous people with your modern ways what decisions they really should make. That feels like a omnibus t-shirt. Let us show you sign. And this is tricky. Even at the highest levels of the smithsonian because they decide to the smithsonian ouseley gets some top scientists together to form a legal battle to protest this finding to form a legal team to appeal the ruling for the army corbin seniors in their fortune. The tragedy will eventually quickly get the remains but the smithsonian doesn't want anything to do with it in fact no museum or university wants their name on it. Harvard or You know the natural has in new york naturalist museum. Nobody wants to be the name behind. We don't think these tribes should get their guy back. Now where are we culturally in at this point in time in the know the growing sensitivity to to a much more diverse sense of like what are what are cultural responsibilities. Is there a. Is there an old guard in all these institutions. That doesn't understand what's happening. And a and like the latest the younger scientists who are like listen with. There's a whole new way of that. We have to approach this material. You know the story does not have any young scientists who were like. This is terrible. Not just for pr. Reasons blight let the tribes have the bones like they don't appear in the story. This story needs more young science. There's a smithsonian attorney. Who says you guys should not be doing this because this could be. The justice department has worn us. This might be a violation of federal statute. That you're a federal employee. Trying to sue the federal government like. That's that's that could be a criminal matter right and the head of the smithsonian overrides the The his own attorneys. Yeah and says no no. We're going to let you know we're not going to be a part legal party here. But we're gonna allow our top curator's to to pursue this as private citizens and would it. Would this be different in two thousand twenty one even though this happened fairly recently even though this is kind of late nineties early two thousands legal battle. But this is twenty. The latest twenty years have been right. Comp- completely changed the way that we think about this stuff culture. Cj that it That this would be different today but at the time all these scientists who think. I'm sure they're on the they're on. The side of good and progressivism. Just want more knowledge about the ancient people here. We're the good guys..

"That's land. We administer the skeleton. An is ours if it's not a crime scene and we've seen the radiocarbon results in it's not a crime scene. Apparently it's not. It's not a crime if it happened nine thousand years ago and it will let so let me ask did spear caused the death. No i as we'll later see been in there and had calcified kennewick man walked around with a spear point in his hip for for years. So way to go kennewick lawyer. I feel like go on and my lower back. No what i'm saying. Middle aged guy. Men were men back then. John nine thousand years ago now no cavities and a big piece of rock in their in their Toxic did the corps of engineers have a paleontological interest. Or were they what like. Where does the this is a question. I asked about the corps of engineers all the time. Where does their purview end. Because they seem to feel within the organization that their purview is limitless. Everything it's like we will if we can shape landscapes with our dams and canals. Yeah we're going to just oh. We need a canal through the center of this town. Like that is so what did they. What was their interest in kennewick man. Well at first they just say look i. It's just typical government territorialism. We're we're gonna make the calls here. We're going to decide who handling access you. Random local scientist Once you have a seat right. It's like when tommy lee jones comes in and says now this is a us marshals issue and then the local cops have to be like. Oh man why they always disappointed. I would be like sweet right well. I'm going to sleep with my wife. How boring it is to be like a homicide detective or an aunt or a paleontologist in kennewick. Yeah there's no csi tri cities. you're like come on. Give me something to do. So the sheriff steps in between the coroner and the army just like we're just gonna put this in one of our sheriffs evidence lockers and figure this out The local anthropologists chatters realizes. He's gonna be out he's got the whole army corp engineers coming after and so he goes up as high as the ladder he can he calls the smithsonian and gets he gets James owls leon mahorn curator at the natural. He's on this. These names are just somebody wrote a novel. And you read it james. Owls league calls jack reacher. He pushed up the the arms of his tweed jacket. Gyms elsa is not only a highly placed government official because he runs the the nation's natural history museum he also specifically in. This area is a scott. He's identified mass graves in the balkans hole and he was the guy. Identifying bodies at the at the david caress compound in waco and even after nine eleven. So he's he's and he's also specialist in in america so like he's the guy and he's super excited because you don't see a lot of big completes nine thousand year old skeletons like this like right like somebody's gonna books are going to be written about this. Oh boy this is a career maker. And that's what chatters is thinking yes and also there's just interest to these guys got into this because it's not just like oh boy. I'm going to be sitting at the table at the dinner this year. Yeah no it's it's also like this is gonna be. I've studied my whole life for. This is the kind of reason i got into anthropology but when hearings are held army corps of engineer prevails. Their attorneys successfully argued that they have the rights to to what exam. They can be whatever they wanted. This point equipment. Here's as those guys so the The bones get locked up in a federal lab in richland college. Men top men. It's a department of energy lab. I guess probably left over from all the hanford era apparatus and this is when the tribes claim the skeleton a coalition of the tribes area. Mattila the coleville the yakima. I think the nets pierce even although it seems like it'd be a little out of jurisdiction was different and there's a years ago well. That's that's the tricky part. They remind the army corps of engineers about nag in one thousand nine hundred. The bush administration the first bush administration signed into law the native american graves protection and repatriation act tried. I remember that too and that seemed like a real victory. It was because there was a history of centuries of desecration of native graves by white people. Who didn't care either. They just wanted to grave. Robbery is oldest timeshare. I mean there's you know the most even the most benevolent cases they're just plowing something up to build a schoolhouse or something right. And other cases they're literally Collecting skulls to put over the bar. There yeah so they would saw heads off fallen native warriors after battles and send them back to washington for study wise for taxidermy. Yeah and then. Of course just all the fortune seekers later who just wanna find cool beads and stuff either for collections or for resale. So you know these people are just worn out from years of having their grave treated like a dollar store but as anyone. But as i recall the so the tribes kind of banded together to because they were going up against the corps of engineers which was seen as a kind of monolithic and insensitive and grasp be federal agency. That had come in to the situation kind of with no with no sensitivity. They didn't put anybody forward they didn't they didn't find a bow tie and and push him up to the microphone and make him the the front person of the the idea right if they just found some guy that was like some neb ish who's like i can't wait to dig into this. Look at those teeth. Yeah but the so. The tribes at i felt.

"Americas by people coming the long way around is it's really like a i mean it's such a dramatic story and you can you can actually follow the migration by the the. The oldest remains that have been found in various locations. We speculate all the time. Well what if what if a different group of people came over on our own raft. You know this is the kon-tiki question. What about and the story gets rewritten. Every time on new found and so that's that was a big part of the argument for the science was like wait a minute. This tells this tells us so much. And that's where the dna came in. It's yeah and there. Are there actually points of fact that may affect your opinion of the case or the various legal decisions that came down regarding the case So i think reasonable minds can differ. Here i i feel like i. I really was interested in the topic. But i'm a little gun. Shy about about internet controversy. And i just kind of you know just sort of moonwalked backwards out of it. Even though i'm super glad that you chose it. And i want to talk about it. I think we can. I think we're i think we're up to the challenge. You know you are nothing if not measured. I'm a real. I'm a real obama on the one hand. Yeah kinda guy you teach the content on the other hand you know you you tell us about. Both sides is the protagonist of this story. But we don't meet him until he's been dead for nine thousand years. Yeah which you know. By which time all his all our faults forgotten. If you're listening to this nine thousand years after jonah have passed on. Well we were unfortunate. Naturally this record you don't know anything about her good or bad. Our neighbors were we. Are your grandparents. I mean that's the thing at nine thousand years right. we're all related. We all have the same that are earlier grandmother at you. Know you follow it. Follow genetics. Are you follow a. What am i looking for. genealogy you follow genealogy and you realize that there's so much genetic material just kind of well i guess you for a better term in inbreeding. We we all have sex with our cousins. Not me personally. No we all do we all all of us here in this room but but all future links are probably in in cousin relationships. Send us an envelope with the names of all of your first cousins with whom you've had relations but then dna also shows us. You know these kind of unbroken lines like i'm related to the three calls the ancient kings of ireland. Well they rats. Thank you i have about. I have the smallest scintilla of genetic relationship to the shows. If it weren't if it weren't for you know the y chromosome. This broken little chromosome the travels through time dumb. Little half chromosome how we hate it. I would things be better without it. Only only i had to hardy x.'s. Silly one the story of kennewick man did not become a national caused. Celebs you say immediately. It started as a pretty small event little article in the seattle times in the summer. Of maybe it was even in some eastern washington paper. I i don't know. In the summer of nineteen ninety. Six to college students in kennewick washington are already implausible. They got lost. They're trying to find a costco. The i'm sure there's something else. He can cusco. Please do not email us kennewick. Can cats can a wicky wicky and try try city ins because we never referred to them except as the tri cities the try citizens try citizen the kennewick. The kennel wicked no They are in the shallows of the columbia river. I don't are they fishing. But they find a bone it's brown it's modeled it's old. They are alarmed and they call in to human bone. It's a human bone. it's they call in the county. Coroner one floyd johnson which is a hope. He's like an old mayberry type thank you. It's an sixth grade county coroner. Dan just exactly what. I was hoping who intern. Turn calls in smick dinner for no local local archaeologists. And i don't know what a local tri-cities archaeologist he must be just a local character. One james chatters Who i think everyone has a local archaeologist is do you think he's on the on the city books. I was reading an article in the newspaper. Just a couple of days ago about about one of these metal detector guys who discovered they're just metal detector guys. Now there's always there's always somebody. There is a local museum. That's only opened on tuesdays. There's a sign that says if you want to visit the museum call and and it's run by this local local archaeologist. He is in fact. is a and phd anthropology from the university of washington. You know my physics teacher. At gonzaga university was a hanford physicist. Who when he wasn't splitting the atom would come up to spokane and teach physics at gonzaga grade teacher i ever had. Oh they weren't fishing. It was the hydro hydro races. Did you know that. There's a tri cities has its own version of fair called waterfalls. What is on the columbia. I did not if you followed if you follow the hydro races like do you know that. The the columbia river racism. Big you travel around the country going to different worries announced them. And now you just bring your that little portable Mike figure she has missed. Budweiser people around me. Like why did you bring this through.

They tape off the scene. And that's when they call in the big guns the coroner in the archaeologist in the failing light of the evening these to dig up from you know scattered because know the water in the mud have done their work. They a complete human skeleton. Wow they find it all. i'm in most. Yeah it's it's a. It's a complete skeleton. You ever find of prehistoric. Man chatters immediately. I mean first.

There are skeletal differences in general between different racial types. Right and it's not phonology but it is you look at the skull shape and i hate to even get into this because you sound like one of these. New atheists turned white supremacists online who were without the calendar. Look at the brain pan and they had they have little micro. Yeah exactly but there are. The asian skull for example has different shaped incisors dental differences.

That's a modern invention you know. Prehistoric man had amazing teeth because they didn't have processed sugar So wow this looks. These teeth looked prehistoric.

S. government wants to change that they've put out extremely high tariffs first round of which took effect last month the next round takes effect in December and that's gonna make the cost of goods in China go sky high so that may change but there is there and there is also the government is also warned and I think quite reasonably about companies like while way witcher why always owned by former Chinese military guy no one really knows who owns it while asus workers owner that's who owns it but even if they weren't owned by the Chinese government there in China they kind of have to follow the rules of the Chinese government so you know it's a good question as legitimate question it's not likely because you have to think about the threat what we call the threat model if you are are you a diplomat a secret agent no all right the drill truths about all of this is there's two kinds of attacks there's targeted attacks and there's widespread attacks the ransomware attacks that you hear about where everybody gets an email it says click this link those are widespread attacks there are ran somewhere attacks that are targeted at at companies that's that explains why you might have heard that a whole bunch of Florida cities were attacked why all Florida cities will somebody was clearly attacking them specifically widespread attacks are easy to defend against that's the that's the threat model that you know when I talk about keeping yourself safe I'm almost always talking about that you know don't open attachments don't click links be careful you know what software you download install that's all to defend against viruses malware widespread attacks if you are however if your Edward Snowden or a diplomat or a spy for a big company then you are possibly the subject of targeted tax those are much more difficult to defend against him nobody's gonna put firmware in that drive case trying to attack a million people who buy it you will what would even do with the data on the other hand if you were a diplomat I might make sure that when you got that in the mail we intercepted it put a little chip in there and send it on and that happens all the time as a cold supply chain hacks they don't need to get the manufacturer to put it in they put in on route and that happens all the time they're also a distinctive attacks against individuals iPhones and android phones when you read about those you might say all ma'am I phones not secure will it is unless your the target that's why they don't let the president use a regular phone right he he has a special phone that's been equipped by the NSA to be more wrote me a more secure so I don't think unless you're the target I don't think you have to worry it's a reasonable question completely the main reason is reason was because if you are the target there's not much you can do about it you have to really change how you think about everything I remember Kevin resorted great article in which he asked a couple of hackers to hack and they did successfully even though he knew was coming and yes the security guy the guy said well when you walk down the street you don't expect to be attacked by ninjas but if if you happen to be the you know the target of ninjas there's not a lot you can do about it but you don't have but that's me we have to all defend against being attacked by inches you know yes you're vulnerable we are all vulnerable but and I don't think I think you're okay so it is it possible absolutely and is by the way is why you should not for instance use a USB key you find on the street it's really easy to modify the firmware on these devices on any device to put spy ware on your machine to put a keystroke loggers you're always be careful if using a computer at the hotel at the business office or library public computer you gotta always be careful because there's no way to know there's not a keystroke logger in the core this tension the key board to the computer back that's a common vulnerability when we go to the gas station we swipe your card you know you gotta be careful that's really easy to put a little swipe or in their these things are all done easily unfortunately but I wouldn't worry about it unless I won unless your a your spy I spy he wouldn't admit it if you were is there is there any chance now there's no way to know because you don't know what you're looking for okay well I'll tell you there is a way a little bit okay so yeah they could put some in there but they've got it is useless them unless they get out right so if it were a mass attack he would have to have a radio and right or some way to connect to the internet to exfiltrate this stuff now what they actually actually come to think about what they could do be easy to do modify the firmware so when you plug that thing in you plug in via USB wakes up because good installed on the computer now your computer is the radios **** talking in the real world and in doing whatever they want to do that is possible but you would see it in activity coming out of your computer so people really want to be secure like if you are a spy you see this in the movies all the time they scanned the room you know looking for bugs yeah that works because they're looking for transmitters you use you make sure you could watch the traffic coming out a machine make sure that everything's coming out is known back users there's a program you can use it'll do this called little snitch he watches out bound traffic and says did you mean this is annoying because everything you do on the computer phones home so you got to constantly go yeah yeah that's okay yeah no no that's not okay on the PC there are firewalls do something similar they watch out bound traffic and block stuff but honestly what's your Allen Dulles I think you're okay okay I appreciate pale as a great it's a really good question I think this problem with talking about security as we do all the time is it's scary or worse I don't mean to scare you you're not the target most the time which you have to defend against his massive tax not targeted attacks much more difficult to defend against architects the reason I say don't pick up a U. S. B. can use it is that's a common mass attack well it's a maybe not a mass attack is obviously the hacker has to go to your company's parking lots these around but let's say I wanted to get into the servers of a company let's say Mister robot no one heck this company one good way to do it they call it a candy drop would be sprinkle a few you know valuable looking U. S. B. keys around and chances are real good one employee will gonna look under twenty eight gig key it's free I'm gonna use of plugging it was computer and it's it is a easy thing to do to make a U. S. any USB device that drive thing or your USP he assumes this is inserted go okay and get on your machine put spy ware on your machine and that's how you know if you run a company you should be worried about this absolutely and if you don't if you're not sophisticated about this stuff for you don't feel like you can really put it you should hire somebody who is everybody needs a ago IT professional who has good training in security who can lock this stuff down we have a really good guy I know my podcast company and my radio studio all that are targets because were public people know about it they'd love to get in here so I know that we're at target which were tax all the time but I have a really good IT guy who does a lot of stuff which I won't tell you to protect us and knock on wood nobody in our front office no nobody at our business office has been hit they didn't get any email see what you would do be easy to do email from Leo laporte the tech guy hi accountant I was here name along give it away hi Sally I've been looking for my taxes from last year can you just send them to me I need to I need them for a loan application Sally says well it's from the boss maybe that maybe just look at the return address she is I am yeah let me just let me just test this taxes with my social security number my home address all my income if they just attach those and send them right out this is not me what if somebody posing as me you know how easy that is to do but in order to do that you'd have to know my name you have no Sally's name you have to know exactly what the email address you have to know somebody that's it's it's it's it's we call spearfishing it's a targeted attack those are much harder defend against much harder eighty eight eighty eight ask Leo that's a great question I love talking about this stuff and I don't want to scare everybody I we need to talk about security but I don't mean to save.

sort of a purplish who issue or whatever else the a and I did that's always a must have and they pile it on I mean it is in the super size soft serve ice cream treat I I'm telling you it is one of the best things on planet earth maybe you go there you get yourself a nice coffee maybe maybe an adult beverage depending you walk around you ride some rides thank the largest coaster in the US to still operating as the beast and of course they got a new thing that now that they're teasing us with for twenty twenty that is coming in and the the name of the new thing escapes me but that's not the point of this so I want to get the kings line I I'd like to get your mind the white water they scare me now with the allergies situation but that's always like a nice trip to go you whether to play some golf the plane the water a little bit to have a good time whatever it is I think about some other stuff well other been some Riverbend shows was up at the the rose music center not long ago nice place for like the PNC pavilion sees about thirty five hundred forty five hundred somewhere in there smaller version of Riverbend so that there are some shows to get to I I think of other stuff lots of festivals lots of other stuff going on to be river fest going on like family reunion this weekend maybe something to check out down so your point that area right so what is on your list when you think summer in the tri state when you think if I haven't done this ain't summer because it's fast approaching time seems to be flying by like Steve Miller's says it it just keeps slipping into the future what is it that is a must do your bucket list summer kind of thing maybe is to go to the airforce museum maybe it's for the museum center newly redesigned re fixed up and everything that goes along with it what is it that you need to do what is it that you want to do maybe it is it's about the the kids and what you need to do with them if it hasn't already been done maybe you're just thrilled that summer's over and you can get those little people back into school so you don't have to worry about what they're doing and where they are and what's going on and they can kill it continue to get the education that they need to hopefully take care of us as we get to the agents state of our lives and they move on to be productive members of society did I get too serious maybe just a little bit what else is there that I I we just talk about going to Vegas I I I think that that is usually a summer excursion for me also and I have not been this year and it's the it's also a ridiculous time to go in the summer because it's basically like going to the surface of the sun but the beauty of it is they have air conditioning I don't know what they did back in the old days I think they just stroked out in I got heat exhaustion died but sizzle air conditioning is is a wonderful thing five one three seven four nine seven thousand eight hundred the big one pound seven hundred eighteen T. I want to know your summer bucket list before it's all said and done and over in those fireworks go boom down along the river because that's really want one I think the end of summer I think western southern WEBN fireworks that I think okay now I got it I got to get the long pants on I got to start thinking about pads for my bald head I got to start thinking about it I do I have the code that I need to is a bit to the cleaners is that extra twenty that I always seem to find one of my jackets is there may be new tires for your vehicle no no I realize those are maintenance issues those are out like good time fun the end of summer kind activities but those things and I love it when I put the coat on but you know you go into the closet you know I mean I don't want this in awhile yeah it's been clear to get to the point a whole there's an extra twenty Bucks in there it's a bonus that's a good thing but that's maintenance what about fun what is the end of summer you got to get it done before it's all said and done for you your chance to get interactive on the other side quick break welcome to it it is a beautiful though wet one at least here in Montgomery still chances in pop up showers and stuff the full forecast straight away in lots to do your Saturday sterling glad you're listening to the nation station seven hundred W.

"kennewick" Discussed on KQED Radio
"That's an interesting point. Because I mean, I was depressed guy once and I probably would have said the same thing as your press guy. But ultimately, if this is the right thing to do something we shouldn't use tax dollars, right at absolute. But I think in I tell people all the time that charity is injustice by think philanthropy is very useful in testing and catalyzing allowing us a steady before we use public dollars. So before we use public. Let's see if it works. And if it's works is a case be made that maybe we should look at this apply for state, nation, etc. It's really, you know. Whenever we have Senator or governor of one of the seven hundred Democrats running for president on positive America. We always ask them. This question about globalization and automation growing income inequality of like, what is the big idea? Right. Like, what is like what is it that we can actually do to actually address this right up until very recently? No, one has been willing to say the words, universal basic income. That's an answer. Right. And there are a couple of reasons for that is there's political fear. Right. But there's also this idea that you mentioned this. I think we're gonna get on a little bit. Is that like in the? Wrongly in my view per se, but in the American imagination. There is a work is a reason for being right at the dignity of work. And like because like you like you somehow it's not just the money you make. It's the experience of working that makes you fulfills yourself. Right. That's the in the sort of distorted vision of America, we've had long we thought that like how do you go about making the case for this? When you have to go against like, what has been core to the the story, America's total suffer a long journey to my assumptions in the first one is that it's crazy. We have a term for it's called the working poor that a lot of poor people are working working incredibly hard longer. They've have to before that poor folks who don't work are because their children, we have child labor law because the majority of folks who are in poverty in this country. I children or a number two. They can't work. Right. And then number three, I think into your point. We as a country, we should grapple with this notion that I work has value work has married, but how do we define work? The stay at home. Mom, who's taking care of kids or watching her mom, and she's not paid. But is that work is that not dignified folks are in school and taking twenty two twenty three units in Kennewick work is that not dignify. And how was that rewarded in terms of compensation, then number three? I think work can have dignity dignity start there. We should start the conversation with as people we have inherent.
