The Hidden War Between ISIS and the Taliban
"The taliban seized control of afghanistan last week after the us military began its planned withdrawal from the country. The group has long fought american coalition forces in afghanistan. But it's also been fighting a parallel war against the afghan arm of islamic state. The local offshoot known as isis k. has reportedly claimed responsibility for the deadly suicide bombing at kabul's airport and the us has vowed to retaliate allen. Collison of the wall street journal has covered the hidden war between the taliban and isis and he joins us from kiev allen. Thanks for being with us. thanks for having. There's a lot of fear not just in afghanistan but around the world about what the taliban takeover means for afghan citizens and for global security but the taliban and the islamic state are sworn enemies. Talk about the relationship between the taliban al qaeda and isis going back to the nineteen ninety s. The islamic state wasn't around in the nineteen nineties yet. The only two groups of importance in afghanistan back then were the taliban and al qaeda taliban had taken control of afghanistan in the nineties after civil war and then al qaeda us the chaos and the vacuum there to set up camp and start training camps and basically turn into a terrorist training ground. the taliban were somewhat ambivalent about al qaeda's presence there from the beginning they did have strains in the relationship but there were also quite defensive about being told what to do by the outside world and so when al-qaeda misbehaved and we bombed afghanistan that sort of seemed to strengthen ties between them after september eleventh When we demanded that they give up bin laden and they wouldn't our invasion of course toppled the taliban And created more problems between the taliban and al qaeda but in some ways they strengthen their relationship because they had a common enemy and they were fighting the united states and over over the course of twenty years. You could say that. They've almost

"You've got three week one. Nfl bets you think money right now. What are they absolutely. I made these. I'm going to make them more at my positions right after this. Podcast ends number one jacksonville minus two and a half at houston based upon my numbers. I make jacksonville is six point favorite on a neutral site. There is no way houston gets three for all field. It's going to be a very limited home field advantage for. Houston this lines going to close three and a half them are late to jacksonville. I like it okay. So you're already accounting. So that's that's what you always talk about. Steve it's not whether or not you win the bet. It's whether or not you beat the final number and i'll make a bold prediction. I'm going to give replays here. I would bet even money that all three of these numbers. You're not going to get any of them. Come september right before the games kickoff love it. What else you got number two buffalo minus six hosting pittsburgh this line just under six on a neutral buffalo's going to have a solid homefield advantage. Nobody likes pittsburgh and the narratives out there. They're all lines. Thanks now and everybody is high on buffalo. This lines can be closed and seven eight. Everyone's going to be teasing buffalo at that point instead of teasing them after the fact what's lay some six right now. Okay all right lane six in buffalo which are third one third one sunday night football rams minus seven against chicago. There's no real support from the sharps for the bears The feelings of rams at early are to be a contender with a huge quarterback upgrade. And the bottom line. This will make the rams just less a little bit less than seven point favorite on a neutral throwing home field. They go up to nine and further. This is the sunday night football game which is going to bring out the public week. One are you crazy. Everyone is gonna want to bet on the ranch in this game. That's the sort sorta game you want to get ahead of the public. The public hasn't met yet. Bet the rams now before the line inflates. Kiev your thoughts on those three games. And steve stoute on the line movement for those games. Well i do have a question for steve. Are you factoring in. Does shawn watson playing that first game or i think he has no chance to play week one. We can have a conversation. Willie come back at some point during the course of the season. But i think at a minimum. He's going to be suspended for a period. Okay now i first of all i agree with all of what you said for the line moves so no matter what you do even if the is even if you don't like it but you know that lines move and you can always come back on the other side especially if you're crossing those t number seven so i one hundred percent agree and the rams one i am a bear fan. But.

"It solid to take a look at bottom line is how many points did score. How many did he give up. And every time you have a thirty five point rental that's worth a win so you tell me a team outscored. Their bonus by seventy points should have been attendance. Sixteen if they go twelve and four they're overrated at eight nate. Their underrated akia brought a fascinating point. That these outliers. Here's when you've got a cleveland team. That gets bombed by baltimore right and they lose by fifty. You probably should say. Are you know after you lose by thirty really the last twenty points. It wasn't your day. Whatever you shouldn't count it as a minus fifty against that team so he can make some tweaks and adjustments. But i know that people in baseball. I've tried to do that where they say. Our team loses seventeen to one. I should grade that like nine to one loss and as it turns out it's actually better to use the seventeen. I believe long term as a model of how teams can do something. That's pretty darn strong. That don't look at the final loss record of a team. Look at point scored points against truly interesting. So what are the teams cab you said are overvalued or overrated again so the overachievers in and i don't wanna use overrated ross. Because we don't know how that's going to factor into the market says on a game by game basis. I just wanna say if they overachieved or not so. I can kind of think of what they're being set with as a season win total. And how. I'm going to approach looking at this team in the two thousand and twenty one. Nfl season before teams are the kansas city chiefs number one overachieved the cleveland browns number two the buffalo bills number three and the tennessee. Titans were number four there's underachievers and that's important to the atlanta falcons Burning sharp people's money for years. It was the number one over underachiever. They're expected winds of seven point nine. Two compared to their four point two five with the points that they scored very inconsistent the jaguars were number two. The houston texans were number three and the philadelphia. Eagles were number four. If you remember houston just could not win a game. Every time they had the edge they will give up a big toll down games against the titans and a few other teams like that love. It love it and so what you do. Is that have an impact. Have you already bet. Some of the season win totals as a result kiev. Yeah i bet. Some of those season win totals. And there's a few different ways of looking at it. The best way is to probably power rate every single game. And then you have your lines and you come up. With the percentage you add up the percentage to see exactly what the winds are or. You can just go by what vegas is. Yoke is vegas. Obviously the market does things that you're gonna miss. You can look at all. The spreads turned them into percentages. An add up every single win by doing that. Then you have an actual win total. I also like to factor in the you know what these teams have gained. What they've lost. New coach new quarterbacks are the number one and number two in my opinion Change in quarterback huge and what they did last year compared to what they are expected to do sometimes gives you an edge over the market but in many cases of the market already knows that so You gotta go through with a fine tooth comb. I did better few season..

"The odds. Breakers dot com the biggest outlier in. I do just for seventeen games. Basically i just take the points scored defense points against an ad that back with adding a function to their actual wins the kansas city chiefs. They're expected win. Total is only ten point eight five from last year when they actually had a fourteen point eight adjusted for seventeen games actual win. That's about a four game difference. If you think about what happened with the chiefs. They went seven ten in one against the spread but their last ten games they were burning sports. Bettors money one nine in one against the spread last eleven games one atomic close games now. Obviously there's other factors mahomes is clutch. But they weren't white. A fourteen thirteen win type team last year. The cleveland browns number two. They only had an eight point. Zero two expected winds compared to their eleven point. Six nine adjusted win. Expected won't total last year. There who outliers in the cleveland. Game though they do they dig it blown out by a baltimore. And cleveland also got blown out by pittsburgh so i think they're more of a nine but still they overachieved year. The buffalo bills overachieved a little bit their actual Expecting winds were eleven. Point zero five and tennessee. Titans were overachievers as well by a little bit. Nine point one nine expected wins compared to eleven point six nine adjusted for seventeen games. So you gotta look at those themes in say well. Hey they overachieved for whatever reason but she also got a factor in the strength of schedule. Okay so there's a lot there. I guess my first question. Is i understand that the point of the of the game is to win and at the point of the game is a score as many points as you. Ken and prevent the other team from scoring as many points as you can but i feel like there are times in different games. Where maybe they're behind by a lot. So the coach decides not to show certain things. Or maybe they're behind by seven. So he goes for the touchdown when you get a fuel goal right now. It's stuff like that. How does that. I mean is it fair to say. Kiev all washes out in the end. Because in my mind. I always think similar to what i say about the spread. Sometimes right which is the coaches aren't coaching against the spread. There just coaching the win. The game the coaches are not coaching for the thackeray in wins. They're just coaching that situation at that time. Which i think affects in. I'd say at least a handful of games a year. how many points they score or allow. Yes we absolutely but in the larger the sample size the more that wipes away. Ross but you also have to remember that it works the other way as well you know. Maybe the kansas city chiefs could've score that extra touchdown against somebody and they didn't you know in many cases that's called garbage time. We try to take away. Take out garbage time when it comes to some of the efficiency staff that you use some of the great websites that do that as football outsiders now they do a fantastic job with their devi. Oa taken out some of that garbage. And that's what you have to look at it now. But you know it's that's more of an in game type bedding type situation here when you're talking about an aggregated amount of points throughout the whole year yet. You have a pretty decent size sample especially if you look back. A few years as well and You can make some decent judgments of that but to be honest with you. There is no perfect stat. Ross and pretty much everything can.

"Of the whole game. I'm kind of looking in the derivatives market. A little bit because i think the cortisone or whatever they give trae young. I think it's going to hold up for a while. But i'm not sure if i can trust him the full game so i kind of liked them at the half because either baxter against the ball you're going to get about three and a half to four points depending upon what book you're looking at and i'd be shocked if team sees trae young. You know the rest of his female. See him go out there. If they're not gonna give it an absolute explosive go in the first half so my first play would be to take the hawks at plus three and a half or plus four. So i already made that play and i feel pretty good about it. And that's in the first half. Got it all right hawks. In the first half. I like that. Bet steve any thoughts as well. The logics very sound. Just at the starting point. I think if you talked all the experts it's pretty clear cut milwaukee's about six nap to seven points better than an average team that would be. That's my power rating. That's what most people's power ratings would be so what's going on here. Milwaukee's laying six and a half to seven for the game. Are we saying that. Atlanta with a somewhat compromised. Trae young is a worse than average team with no homecourt advantage. That's ludicrous clearly. There are a little bit better than average team with the banged up. Trae young and they have a decent homecourt advantage with the crowd back even though they got rid of like stained glass window for the logo midcourt that i loved but the the bottom line is of the numbers already are supporting and atlanta play but now our biggest concerns. Pf says is that we might have an issue with trae young as the game goes on. Why not played early in the game. I think the first quarter plus to a first half. I just looked at the screeners. One place it does. Add a plus four makes so much sense. I like that. I think it's a good investment. Love it all right so we're already off to a good start and by the way kiev. Thank you very much for the kind words about the show. It's uncanny how often people mentioned that. Or i see it online somewhere. I think people just like the things. I hear okay. People like that.

But Paul Manafort definitely did He dealt with this guy constantly, Kalinic. Except for the fact that constant clinic was an Obama administration source. So Gates it's Jake Tapper Jake tapper on it and says, Hey, you got any evidence about that? Check this out. It was very clear through State Department cables from the U.

On a host of information that was coming of Ukraine as well as other countries that I'm not even aware of the Senate intelligence just to say that there was a Russian operative. That's according to the Senate, the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee that's not from the media. That's from the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee. That's correct. But where's the evidence? There's been no evidence to the contrary. And more importantly, why did they include the evidence that does exist, which is the State Department cables? U. S. State Department officials. Recording exactly what they did and didn't do with Mr Clinic. Yeah, That's kind of a good question, right? If Kalim nix this big time Russian spy Manafort was dealing with And why was he dealing with the Obama State Department? And why haven't we seen that information?

It doesn't really act like a government agency or even a straight up contractor like iran's mob group for one thing gamero don doesn't restrict it's targeting the way government operation normally would nor is it entirely indiscriminate in the way the lower end criminal gangs tend to be for all that gamero. Don is both noisy and aggressive. Research by cisco's talos group suggests that gamero don is also a mercenary player in the criminal. Criminal market talos wrote in.

The attack belongs to the so-called supply chain attacks methods in means of carrying out this cyberattack allow to connect it with one of russia's hackers spy groups this is therefore a different matter entirely from the distributed denial of service attacks ukraine complained of at the beginning of the week the de dos attack targeted.

U.S. charges Russian military hackers
"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.
Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad
"The New York Post breaks a story about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. And essentially, the story is this 100 Biden, who is in fact a crack, and I mean he is is a drug addict. He's an unsavory character. He has several hey, has had many affairs with various different Women. He's he's amassed. 100 100. Biden is just a mess is a mess of a human being. And not Joe's fault, per se. I mean, there were lots of good parents who have a message for Children. But it is Joe's fault that Joe has allowed Hunter Biden to run across the world, picking up sacks of cash by trading on his last name. And that is 100,000 has been doing for years. Right victim. Sacks of cash in China picked up sacks of cash in Ukraine, and for a long time conservatives have been focused in on 100 Biden's activities with regard to charisma. Now the original narrative with regard a breeze must breeze. My Satan is a natural gas and oil company in Ukraine, 100 was sitting on the board of the company and picking up checks for $50,000 a month despite the fact that he didn't know anything. About natural gas or oil, despite the fact that he himself was a personal mess. The only reason he was on that board is because he was related to Joe Biden. Joe Biden was then the vice president of the United States and largely in charge of Ukrainian policy. Well, Joe Biden and bragged on tape about getting one of the chief prosecutor's over in Ukraine fired He threatened with hold $1 billion in foreign aid to Ukraine until they fired this guy. Joe Biden always claimed that it had nothing to do with Hunter. This prosecutor claimed that he was about to investigate bereavement that was the company Hunter was working for. The chain has never quite been made. So there's a lot of controversy over the over whether Victor Shokhin, who was that prosecutor was actually going to prosecute charisma. There was indeed a lot of focus on Victor Shokhin is a possible corrupt figure inside Ukraine. Lot of people in Europe wanted. See Victor Show can go as the chief prosecutor in Ukraine, Biden has always claimed that his firing of victim Victor Shokhin was on the up and up. Soaking has always claimed that it was corrupt. That controversy has been out there for quite a while. What is unchallenged is that Joe Biden's family members ranging from his brother to his son, use his name in order to make money for themselves. And that does have an element of corruption to it. Now, The best that you can say about it is that Joe Biden turned a blind eye to it. Right. And this is sort of like show has argued Joe Biden has said, Well, I didn't know about it. Nobody ever did anything. Nobody ever did anything, man. Nobody. Come on, man. Come on. I never no, no. Come on. Okay, so Here's the bombshell. The New York Post reports that 100 Biden actually brokered a meaning between a Ukrainian oligarchs who was a breeze, MMA chief member and Joe Biden directly That's what one of these emails tended to suggest. So here's the story from the New York Post 100 Biden introduce his father, then Vice President Joe Biden, top executive in the Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressure government officials into Ukraine into in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who is investigating the company, according to emails obtained by the post. Never before revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that are sky and an advisor to the Board of Charisma allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17th 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the charisma board and reported salary of up to 50 grand a month. The email reads Deer hunter. Thank you for inviting me to D C and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spend some time together. It's really an honor and a pleasure. An earlier email from May 2014. Also shows are sky reportedly bereavement number three exact asking Hunter for advice on how you could use your influence on the company's behalf. A blockbuster correspondence is The New York Post reports flies in the face of Joe Biden's claim that he has never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. It's containing a massive from of data recovered from a laptop computer. Computer was dropped off, apparently at a repair shop in Biden's home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the store's owner, other material extracted from the computer, including raunchy 12 Minute video that appears to show Admitted struggling with addiction problems smoking crack. Well engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images. The customer who brought in the water damage Mac book pro for a pair never paid for the service were retrieved it or a higher drive on which its contents restored, according to the shop owner who said he tried repeatedly to contact Shop owner couldn't positively identify the customer as Hunter Biden but said that the laptop for a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, named after hundreds of late brother and former Delaware attorney general Photos of a devil or a federal subpoena given to the Post show that both the computer and hard drive was seized by the FBI in December after the shop's owner says he alerted the feds to their existence before turning over the gear, according to the shop owner. He made a copy of the hard drive and later gave it to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's later Barbara Costello. Steve Bannon, the former adviser to President Trump told the post about the existence of the hard drive in late September. Giuliani provided the post with a copy of it on Sunday. Less than eight months after Bashar sky thanks Hunter Biden for the introduction to his dad, the then vice president admittedly pressure Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokhin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev by an infamously brag to the Council on Foreign Relations. I looked at them and said I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired. You're not getting money.
Modest Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
"I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics for kids. Viktor Hartmann was a nineteenth century, Russian artist and architect and a good friend of composer mode as his ski. When Hartman died suddenly at the age of thirty nine was dark ski was devastated. Hartman's friends organized a memorial exhibit of his work, and then resort ski created his own tribute to Hartman a piano piece that portrayed ten artworks from the show called pictures at an exhibition. Quite, a few people have made orchestra versions of pictures at an exhibition. The best known one is by Maurice, Richard. Pictures at an exhibition starts off with that promenade which pops up several more times. Zarzusky meant it as strolling music to lead you through the gallery from one picture to the next. The first picture in Zork Skis Exhibition is a gnome actually it's a sketch for a nutcracker shaped like gnome sort of a Goblin who lives under the earth. then. The promenade leads to a painting of a very old castle from medieval times with a troubadour traveling singer outside it in reveals orchestration the saxophone is the instrument that plays the part of the troubadour. From there we promenade onto a picture of a nanny taking care of some kids playing in the twee gardens in Paris. Doesn't it sound like they're teasing each other and? Yeah Yeah. No promenade before the next picture, which is of a wagon with huge wheels the kind of wagon that was pulled by oxen. The title of the picture is bid low, which is Polish for Oscar. After the last of the promenades we come to the ballet of the unhatched chicks. Victor Hartman's designed for some ballet costumes in his sketch to people where egg outfits with bird head helmets but I think the music sounds more like they're running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Next to that picture repair of Pencil sketches of a rich man and a poor man, the rich one sounds pretty snooty. Roll. Along. In the poor man sounds like he's crying. Back to France for the next. Women Gossiping in the marketplace in the town of Moses. Then a couple of very creepy scenes I some catacombs, underground tombs full of old bones. It almost sounds like they're about to get up and walk around to the promenade tune doesn't it? The next bit creepy nece is a sketch for clock based on an old Russian fairy tale about a witch named Baba Yoga who supposedly lives in a scary hut that's perched on fouls or chickens legs. The very last picture in the exhibition is the designed Viktor. Hartmann entered in a competition to build a gate that would be the grand entrance to the city, of Kiev. If, the great gate of Kiev theme reminds you of the promenade. Now, you know where that strolling music was edited all along.

Modest Mussorgsky: The Mighty Handful
"Hello welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. The mighty handful may sound like a rock band or a bad babysitting job and the mighty five may sound like a basketball team. But both of those were nicknames for a group of Nineteenth Century Russian composers interested in developing a Russian sound for classical music. Obviously, there were five of them. Mighty handful refers to five fingers. The ringleader of the mighty handful was mealy Bollock, a pianist and composer who wanted to promote nationalism in Russian music in music nationalism refers to a south. That's distinct Taylor country. Sometimes, that's done by using folk tunes, rhythms, or dance forms and a piece of music, but it can also mean including historical characters or legend from a region. While Akira, wrote an overture in which he put pieces of three Russian folk songs. Eventually Bala of became director of the Russian Court Orchestra. But for a while he quipped music and went to work for the Russian railroad in fact, every member of the mighty five held a nonmusical job at one time or another. Alexander Borodino was never a professional musician. He was a professor of chemistry. From the time he was a kid Borodino was very musical but he decided to study science instead he wound up founding the first Russian School of Medicine for women. After he met Bollock. The great cheerleader for Russian Music Borodino. Began composing. But since science and medicine took up most of his time, he didn't get a chance to finish very many pieces. One of the other members of the mighty hand full wound up putting Borodin's opera Prince Ebor into its final form, the man who cleaned up Laura Dean's music and music by quite a few other composers was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov. Rimouski. Korsakov was in the navy when he met up with Mealy, Bollock Kiro and decided that. Should be his life rimsky-korsakov quit the maybe to study composition after teaching himself to compose he wound up as a professor of composition at the new conservatory. In Saint Petersburg Russia rimsky-korsakov was great at orchestration knowing what instruments to assign to which lines of music in order to get the best sound. He finished a lot of pieces that some of his fellow Russians left unfinished and he also rearranged a lot of music some of which didn't necessarily rearranging. The. Last member of the mighty five was Cesar. Has An unusually UN Russian sounding last name because his father was French. In fact, he was a French military officer who decided to stay in Russia after being taken prisoner there while fighting with Napoleon's army. says. We started out in the military too but you guessed it after he met Mealy Bala. Cesar qe became a composer. Even, though he had no Russian ancestors, his mother was Lithuanian qe became a big champion of Russian music just like the other members of the mighty handful. There, you have the other for Russian composers who made up the mighty handful. Bella Kiev Alexander Barra Dean Cesar qe and Nikolai rimsky-korsakov. The fifth of course was this month's composer Modeste Ski. That's no Muss G. N. O., M. US. The GNOME. An m. e. from pictures at an exhibition by modest Mussorgsky's
About Modest Mussorgsky
"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics for. Kids. Modeste. MAZUROWKSI was born in eighteen, thirty nine in the village of Carnival. In Russian his name is pronounced Moose key which sounds like it has something to do with cows but it doesn't. Muzar is the Russian word for garbage. Even though his family was descended from nobility, the story goes that one of Zorzi or Muzar excuse ancestors had quite a potty mouth. So people started referring to him by the sort of language he used Mazaar ski didn't have a very common first name either Modeste in Russian means the same thing as when you pronounce it in English modest. resort Steve got his first piano lessons from his mother and it was clear early on that he was a very good pianist but back, then the oldest son inherited the family house and land and the second son went into the army. Was the second son. So after he graduated from Military Boarding School, he became an army officer but not for long when he was eighteen was ski met Russian composer, Mealy Bella, Kiev, and started studying with him. The next year was ski left the army to become a composer. pollock was only a couple of years older than me. And he was very passionate about developing a Russian style of classical music for years. He and four other Russian composers met every Saturday night to study music together. Bollock didn't actually know that much about music but that didn't stop him from dissecting and criticizing the other's throat. He complained so much about one piece of Zork Skis that Missouri Ski finally stopped working with him. was. Exceed thought the composition he called his witches was pretty good. Then he was right we know those which is as a night on bald, mountain? The story behind a night on bald mountain may well be one of the Russian folk tales resort ski learned from his nanny while he was growing up quite a few of those legends turned up later on in his music. When Muzar oxy was twenty four. There were political changes in Russia and his family lost most of its land and money since McKee wasn't making any money composing he had to get a job. He went to work for the government, but he kept on composing was arc ski loved writing for the voice. Lots of songs including one about a very pesky insect a league. uh-huh. And Ski also wrote several operas. His masterpiece is a Russian czar or ruler who lived in the fifteen hundreds Boris enough. A. No Moose and Squirrel Boris good enough is not related to buddies bad enough. But now you know where the folks who wrote the rocky and full winco cartoons came up with the name. One of Mubarak's Ke's best known pieces. Pictures at an exhibition was written in memory of an artist friend of his who died unexpectedly. More about pictures at an exhibition in a few weeks, I told you that resort ski was one of a group of five Russian composers interested in promoting Russian classical music next week more about the other members of the group.

In Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko will do anything to cling on to power
"Generously as long term leader Alexander Lukashenko has told Russian media that he'd maybe satellite along in the presidency. But that only he could protect Belarusians Now. In an interview with Russian journalists, he said he wouldn't step down and leave generous, adding that if he did, his supporters would be slaughtered. Lukashenka has been facing massive street protests since claiming victory and disputed presidential elections last month. Earlier, one of the main opposition leaders. Maria call Yes. Nika was detained at the border with Ukraine from Kiev. Joan official reports when other opposition leaders fled Belarus, Maria Kalashnikov, ER stayed behind. Her cropped blond hair was a regular sight at the four weeks of protests that have followed the disputed election.

The two men crossed into Ukraine. But Miss Cholestin cover did not. The exact circumstances aren't clear. But it appears she may have torn up her own passport to make it impossible for the authorities to force her out.

Does Halos Delay Help PS5s Launch
"I do want to jump into what is the biggest next-gen news and it's not playstation five related. Exactly. But I do think it will have an impact on Kiev's five going into this fall, and that is, of course, the news that just a little bit before we started recording which is the fact that Halo Infinite has been delayed into twenty twenty one. It's no longer set for a day at least with the xbox series X. so as xbox one empty versions are also coming out next year. Alongside, that Microsoft did kind of help soften the blow I think mentioned. Oh, by the way it's coming in November. Again, not an exact date but narrowing it down to a month and surprise surprise it's November but they also did sort of mentioned in. The outlined what their plans are for the launch window. So they said, you know there will be over a hundred xbox series acts optimize titles in between games that are made exclusively for next Jenin pc or for games that are made for xbox one as well. That will have like series ax improvements, and of course, they're also touting the fact that they have four generations of backward compatibility, and so you can play thousands of games at launch. I want to get to sort of the way that they're framing the entirety of all of this stuff but I wanna take a look specifically at Halo I. Th they they give some explanation for it. Essentially saying there's been a number of factors that caused the delay and one of them. Of course, being be impact of COVID. Nineteen on you know working from home and having to deal with such big title from home obviously three three as a huge. Studio and I think a lot of the discussion we've seen since this announcement has definitely been a whole you know trying to get in the first take of whether or not. This is good for Microsoft Japan, for Microsoft good for halo bad for halo good for Sony Bad. For Sony, I? Think we've seen like everyone trying to jump the gun whether or not it is good or bad and I think the answer is somewhere in the middle. I definitely want to hear both of your thoughts about it because I've been thinking to myself. Of course, we will be hours but Brian how did how did you take this announcement? I think in terms of means for Xbox this fall and what it means for playstation this fall so Obvious Caveat I'm not a big Halo Guy. That said I am a big video guy I'd love console launches I'm fascinated in the between a large swath of dedicated consumers becoming not so dedicated hopping from platform to platform the sort of like you know the turns throughout the time of of how People have gravitated towards systems and made them. Dominant launch console is always interesting to me. My immediate reaction was like this really sucks. Not even because I had any full intention of playing this at launch although I do have intention buying a serious a series excellent they one but because this, I think. This changes. The conversation around launch consoles, launch games. It changes the conversation around A justification people might have to gravitate towards the system which I think deflates competition a little bit and I think competition is a tremendously important thing in this and every medium and so. It's kind of a bummer. It is interesting though because I do think that like it opens up a different outlet for Microsoft, as you can see, they're already doing with that press release this morning or this afternoon which will try to differentiate their presence. This November against playstations I think playstation is going to be like. This is this big gigantic, shiny new thing with exclusive games and Spiderman and Microsoft's. It's going to be like thousands, hundreds, millions they're going to say like with playstation they were going to be like we have this. Is must have individual detail this thing, this game, this moment, this controller, this new design and Microsoft is GonNa go we have so much stuff just tons and tons of stuff, and so I think it'll be sort of a jack of all trades master of none historic. If you look back especially this generation launch game sucked like. Like it was really not a lot going on The the best exclusive for US exclusive there you know the xbox one which rolled out with a litany of its own personal problems launched a with exclusives like there was a forza obviously. Dead rising. Four. Killer instinct like. Big stuff but not logos. Yeah exactly. Not Really. Like, swing for the fences you know be the first ten, million type of situation
Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers
"Everybody from the British. Ask this week's interview. Episode has any Greenberg senior writer at wired. He just SORTA book called Sand Worm New Era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's Miss, dangerous hackers, it is all about hacking group inside of the Russian government called San Worm. They were responsible for the most damaging cyber warfare attacks over the past year there behind not PECI. The hackers took out in the mayor shipping line hospitals across the U. K San has totally escalated. What we think of Cyber War, and he's book gets all into how they were discovered how they were flushed out the. The intricacies of these various hacks. It's super interesting. The book is a thrill ride. If you're looking for something that isn't the virus. This is like a thriller, a highly recommended. It was really fun to talk to her about the stuff. one thing I. WanNa know we're all at home so during this in every might hear some kids in the background. I asked you just be a little forgiving that we're all. We're all dealing with it and he was a great interview. Check Out Sandy Greenberg of sand worm, a new era of cyber war and the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous hack. Any Greenberg your senior writer at wired you're also the author of Sand Worm, new era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous. Welcome glad to be here so even writing about cybersecurity frontier I think you just said two thousand six and writing about Cybersecurity, but this book sand worm as I was reading it. It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive. Advertising content when I say Utopia what comes to mind? Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the Pathak social body. Everybody in that place. Everybody happy now. While the peacock original series brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. The concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago, but we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous. Huxley's Utopia and not finding it. Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades and we're increasingly lonely. whereas in a utopia, everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen, forty-three, the psychologist Abraham Maslov developed a theory of Yoga. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in a utopia we decide for ourselves what we need and how we're going to get it in Huxley's Utopia. Citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds pretty good right then. Why can't we make it happen?

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you. Thank you so much for coming on I know it's. It's a weird time to be talking about anything, but the coronavirus I was very happy to talk about something else, which is that it seems a little bit more in control Even if it is quite dangerous, a thank you for the time.

"Toronto to Tehran via Kiev and he said we cannot speculate about the cause right after the crash the Iranians said that a mechanical failure caused an engine fire but there was a media skepticism about that because it came so quickly after the crash initially Ukraine was prepared to accept the conclusion and put out a statement that about mechanical failure that day then hours later retracted and in Ukraine there's some growing skepticism about the actual cause of this of course we know it came at a time of of tension Iran had just launched missiles undoubtedly was hearing a reprisal attack from the United States in and you could certainly envision a scenario where a defensive weapon was shot often and perhaps hit something that it shouldn't have a lot of mystery remains but we do have a little bit of Intel do we not the radar some indication of might paint a picture here well we know that the the aircraft had taken off from Tehran and climbed only two seventy nine hundred feet when it disappeared it could be that there was some mechanical issue aviation experts say that it's more likely something catastrophic happened so what catastrophic a bomb if that were the case you'd expect the the the fire to be in the fuselage not necessarily the engine but it's also been possible that that that a rocket or something you know may have laughed and we know that but according to the Canadians the it was a standard departure then contact was lost something very unusual happened there are a number of possibilities and they're hoping to to to get some more information out of a wrong we're talking with ABC's Erin to Turkey Erin Boeing usually has ago team at the ready to investigate crashes of its aircraft is the regime likely let them have a look we don't think so we're not sure that Iran is prepared to share any information with Boeing or any U. S. authority or not we're not sure and and in the end it may well be there was a mechanical failure rather than something shot down and if it's just too early to to say there are only a handful of countries with the aviation know how to to really do these thorough investigations and we're not sure which country if any Iran is prepared to turn to a lot of questions here in the United States certainly if you're in Ukraine you've got to be wondering where do we fit and all this but I I take Ukraine had dispatched investigators to Tehran they've canceled flights between Kiev and terror on for now a number of carriers have already stopped their aircraft from flying over Iranian and Iraqi airspace given the the tension between the US and Iran but now flight have been canceled altogether by Ukrainian Airways and perhaps through the Ukrainians are the Canadians will be able to get a fuller picture as to what happened the CBC's Erin to Turkey come on it's time for ten here's bill smirked at the Harley exterior sports.

"kiev" Discussed on Even Money
"Lifetime and that's outside. That's high people don't think so but <hes> the money really adds up. Now you can have swings were hugh lose. You know five to thirteen games in a row and then all of a sudden you pick up and win. <hes> you know twenty out of thirty it happens in it happens when you're playing multiple games and if you don't have proper proper bankroll management you can't get through the ebbs and flows of the sports betting you know like last year when I bet college I had to very bad weeks. I had about five close to even weeks and I had a roughly five really good weeks. Let's say so you know if I had poor bankroll management and decided to bet all my money throughout those bad weeks I would be starting again with zero and and nobody wants to do that so I always say is use the star system. One Star is one percent of your bank roll. Five stars is five percent of your bankroll so if you start with a thousand dollars you're one star bet should be ten dollars. <hes> you know you should be averaging two or three stars that way you can be a consistent sports. Use It as an investment without obviously putting yourself out there too much yup. I agree and Kiev is describing the Kelly criterion for betting where you should bet proportional to your edge edge <hes> the literature out there. There's actually quite a bit of <hes> <hes> varied opinions regarding this in terms of some people say you should always wager the same amount and not very from that I'll be honest here. I The pros at I respect think that that's ridiculous because if you're a true pro and you're really good at this you should be looked seeing certain bats just saying oh that's just completely stupid that number on <hes> a lot of times. I'm props in the like. You'll see an opening number on a prop bet like Murray for instance pass yards this year thirty one hundred I think one book put it up by well. Let's just the dumb number you play over and you know you're slash and burn your by all the over thirty one hundred you can because the numbers just wrong and that is like a sixty percent bet so <hes> the people that that flat I kind of a harsh critic I apologize for that. It's just raw. You're not you're not good if you're a beep because it's like a poker players saying I always WanNa play to five well. If you got the world I understand you don't want to go bankrupt but if the we have the world's worst players that are playing at five ten game one night well then you gotta step up and you gotta play higher because the game is so good so when the games good meaning the the spreads are wrong on things you have to you just have to bet more money at that point but bottom line is you. You can't lose your bankroll and that's why you gotta estimate what your edges and bet within it so I love the one to five stars one percent of five percent percent in terms of how much you're gonNA wage now one thing I will say if you're a pro and that's all you're doing. You have to religiously live by this or else. Even if you hit fifty five percent you will go bankrupt betting fourteen percent of your banker on each game just because of in an inevitable that swing if you're recreational better you can bet more than like if you have a thousand dollars to wager with because if you have a normal job in the like it's not like you're like saying yourself like if you were golfing like wow once golf five times I can't golf the rest of the year because because I'm bankrupt no neal you'll make more money and go golfing again so <hes> you don't have to be as <hes> disciplined about you know staying within that <hes> because if you're starting with the bankroll five hundred dollars for instance it's no fun Ben Five dollars a game the difference between a pro better and a recreational better yeah. I don't know why people would not want to make more off their strongest feelings especially. If you have a four point difference in your power rating go past the key number compared to going from seventeen to twenty one you know i. I think that I think it's extremely important to know <hes> trust your feeling. Entrust your power ratings there because you know those are the kind of bets that should have the best e. v. and when you make bets on the best evey you are going to win a a lot more than well then just going on the same amount so for people that don't know give e._v.. He's the expected value of your bet. It's basically taking what you can win. Times your chances of winning <hes> minus how much you have to put up times your chances of losing you have to be above above a fifty two point thirty eight percent expected value on all your bets so for instance if Vegas is number is minus five and your number is minus five to you. It's a fifty percent now that is you cannot <music> out win. The juice will eventually get you but once you get over that fifty two point thirty eight percent is where you can start making place you have in no your key numbers and the values of those numbers. I think you Kinda talked about this a little bit with. Two and a half and three and all that stuff yeah yeah absolutely there's and the biggest number in the N._F._l.. And in college football is minus three. That's <hes> that's the biggest key number as as said it lands at least sixteen percent of the time they are <hes> seven is is next ten is next and then I believe it goes <hes> six four fourteen but I've seen some different opinions on that <hes> Fez it. Does that sound about right to you okay. I got a backup because there's a really important point. We gotTA stop using the sixteen percent for the game landing three because when the dog wins just reiterate this again the game is not landing on the number so we gotta start saying teams favored by three they win by three ten percent of the time and you're right that's spot on is the most important number when teams favored by seven the win by seven. It's about half as often so it's the most important number five percent for some time and I meant I should say that and I actually talked about that in the article it when they'd say it lands on three that means you got account for both teams landing on it so you split that number in half absolute and not just not happy the favorite will win more often than the dog will win so that's where I get that I bring that sixteen percent down to ten percent right. Let's get to your last one. Don't get sucked into bad plays with low. E._V.'s please yeah absolutely in Vegas doesn't sports books. Don't make money just off straight up spread bats and total bed says you know they offer up future bats they offer up <hes> win totals the offer parlays parlays and I love parlays but they aren't exactly the best for value in my opinion and I think if you're going to play parlays just kinda use your a different little level of disposable Zabol income for them. I mean if Vegas fifty percent right exactly on the spread and you play three game parlay. We'll get the multiply fifty point fifty times point fifty times point fifty which is roughly well actually twelve point five percent so they're paying six to one and your chances of winning. That bet is twelve point five percent. There's there's a pretty large vague in there. Yeah you know parlays her an interesting and controversial situation because there there are some pros that play lots of parlays so let me explain when you can parley the first off. You cannot play cannot hate to use an always or never but in general you you don't WanNa play four and five team parlays and here's why to team parlay pays two point six to one three team probably pay six to one so it turns out. If you'd just bet game one it wins cash your ticket reinvested better again cash. Your ticket reinvested bedded again. You're not being shortchanged at all playing three-team parlays in fact it's <hes> you're laying just under mice one ten for each leg of the parley when you play three team parlay <hes> the problem with it. Is that bankroll management it <hes> creates huge swings in your your results so there's no reason for you to put things into a parlay unless one you want to circumvent some limits that there's some really low limits. That book is dealing on the number like we talked about. Hey I really WANNA get down on this game but a book is only the five hundred dollar limit well. You might say just parlay that that play with like five other plays I like and then they can get down a whole lot more money <hes> and the second reason this correlation so if you extreme example college football you like the the underdog plus twenty hey why not parlay that plus twenty with an under fifty eight and a half because obviously the dog covers. It's more like the game is going to go under so these the correlations could make parlays valuable <hes> but the one parlay that everyone does in Vegas. It's just horrendous is playing the four teamer and the reason is think about it. If a three teamer pay six to one which essentially a seven for one meaning you bet a hundred after your three teamer wins they pay you seven hundred well. Some places only pay ten to one on a fourteen or so think about about that. You're essentially taking that seven hundred dollars that you effectively one after winning three teamer and then you're risking seven hundred to win four hundred on the fourth leg that is where the Vegas crushing for you and that's why Vegas on these he's four and five team parleys their playoff the board that is the worst wager that you can possibly ever make <hes> it's worse than playing Keno because the KENO edge is actually <hes> less. I think it's eighteen percent then this blindly playing up four or five team partly one hundred percent agree and I I love your point on the correlated parlays. Not all books will allow them are sometimes we'll make you wait till right before the game so make sure your shopping at the correct areas Kiev.

"With the Atlantic Council and co founder of the remote ski international news network in Kiev max, how severe is the situation full gay people in Chechnya, it's still as you can imagine very hard to verified information from the region because exactly as two years ago, there is no access for foreign media to the. Region. It's basically a fierce dawn is run by theory, author -tarian leader Kadyrov whose basically supported and backed by president of to Putin, and it makes the job of very fine formation very hard at the same time. At this moment, we actually managed to get information about at least twenty people killed and dozens detained arrested or keep napped and in including people who disappear it is as bad as it wasn't two thousand seventeen and a personally, I think it's even worse in many instances that the crisis we dealt and pogroms without two years ago. How people actually targeted is it a case of homosexual activity being banned in Chechnya all people rounded up full simply looking or acting in a way that might be perceived as gay I keep telling that that basically the metrics and the way the deal with these cases is the same as the deal with any. Accident in the region. Basically, you can be a queer or not it doesn't matter. They can actually accuse of that you of that. If you in some way, disagree with the government, or you just for example, come across as odd or unreliable, but it seems like they use the same method that they used before detaining people and then going through their phones and cell phone records and basically start searching detaining, everyone on those phones. So you cannot say for sure if it's specific related to sexual orientation, but then people got jailed and some of them get killed because of that some people have been detained and then released many others, of course, are reported to have died of having been tortured, and this old takes place at what are essentially concentration camps out. They. I wouldn't say that their concentration camp we talk about region that is police state. They run the whole operation the whole region as big one huge prison, and actually they prepared much better. This time the made sure that the victims cannot run for their lives. Many passports were revoked actually in the last two years, they got better in abusing international law, especially anti-terrorism laws because they were hunting down those victims who ran for their lives at broad through anti-terrorism laws, and basically saying that they're arbitrarily saying that there, for example, is has collaborators and trying to get them deported back from the places they were managed to run from to. And I think in this case he cannot imagine it as a specific places somewhere in Chechnya there, they where they get the people and imprisoned them. It is an open air prison for all of Chechens most of them, especially those. Who disagree with kade'er of or with with the government in any specific where any particular way max, there's been a lot of concern regarding this story across the media. But as far as I can tell up less of a political reaction, look, Ben, this is direct result of lack of international response to the previous Paul pogroms lack of any sanctions lack of any actual meaningful. Act moves from the international community and also specific governments because those people on the ground cadre of Horon stretching Russian region of Chechnya and Vladimir Putin who covers for him. They all feel emboldened that they got away with previous programs that left dozens of people killed in hundreds still missing. So I think that yes, it's important to get verbal reaction from the government, and we've already seen some of those condemnation coming from Europe, for example, some European. Governments. But that's not enough. There must be a sanctions list. At least I can name you from the top of my hand, ten fifteen people directly responsible on the ground for those actions. And have a d- are not on any sanctions lists whatsoever. Despite that they're already did that two years ago and got away with it. What kind of cult sequences?.
