"Content and you can't have it taken down because it's not nonconsensual content. It's not revenge porn right. That's a huge problem for your business right. So and pornhub has been until they got called out about it terrible about that so this implementation of the verification process is not a bad thing. I'm speaking out against it. It is a good thing. It will not stop child porn and sexual objectification and sexual trafficking and more importantly the results of this article taking away. Those people's income is going to cause significantly more sexual sex trafficking than it stops quote unquote. Wow just by by taking away these these sex workers income what i wanna say. Also to the stories that are mentioned in the article because my intention is to absolutely respect to the stories of the victims who came forward how difficult it must be for them to share their stories. How horrifying it must be for them to have gone through that process and gone through that trauma but one thing i will say if you read these stories. The one thing they all have in common is the shame around sex work. Yeah that destroyed their life. Note that to like culturally. That seemed to be a big part of the problem. It was it was shame around not just sex work but just the fact that a girl had sex or had done anything you know like a and that that's something society. I wish we could fix you. Know like and it should be pointed out that trafficking hub is a part of that problem. They are contributing to. They are funding the culture that shames women for being sex workers right. They want to sell you a three hundred dollar bundle on how to go to a place where sex workers work and tell them that jesus loves them and they are being trafficked. This is a huge part of the problem. That kristoff acknowledge kristoff. Doesn't acknowledge the shame around sex work or how hard it is to get paid for sex work legally thanks to sister and foster and now thanks to his article. He never mentioned that. He doesn't mention how you know. The documentaries that exodus cry makes like hot girl wanted although that might be a different church but the documentaries that churches me called hot girls wanted or life after porn that portray porn stars as you know being part of nonconsensual relationships or that all porn is sex trafficking or that all porn is extreme and nonconsensual and horrible. You know these are church. Created things around the sex industry to shame sex workers and make it harder to be a sex worker right and nick kristof rather than reaching out and condemning them links to their website and go fund. Me that's going to put money into their pockets again. There's no way to follow this money until you elevate academy files. It's taxes later year. And i'm guessing they're a religious charity. So i'm guessing that there will be no way to follow the money from this go fund me but if i were to guess i would say that. Some of the money from this article that is intended for a victim of sex trafficking is going to go directly to the churches that make the problem worse. And that's super heartbreaking to me well on that depressing note You've made a hell of a case Ally and also it strikes me that this seems like the exact kind of thing that would be a big blind spot for christoph in our society you know like it's still unfortunately religion and churches still have a ton of currency in this country. And i think the i it makes sense to me that this could be kind of a combination of a number of blind spots for people like. Okay well this sounds horrible. You know obviously porn probably their bias is like porno. Probably doing terrible stuff and there's probably sex trafficking and like it's a church group of churches you know. They're they're legit. So i'm not gonna look too much into that you know and it also seems like there's almost no incentive for anyone to critique this piece i mean it's got to be a huge uphill battle for anyone that's not an obscure podcast that used to have atheist in the name of critique this kind of thing yeah and again i just want to clarify. I am not defending pornhub. I am so happy for pornhub as a whole to go into the garbage because many in for many many reasons pornhub the company belongs there but the problem is porn porn is still getting its ad. Money's the sex workers who were using this platform to feed their families are who are going to be hurt by this and so it's important to note that like christoph and everyone who reads this article is going to move on right. They're going to move on with pornhub on the wrist. No one is coming back for the sex workers who this does real demonstrable harm to And the reason. I wanted to talk about. This is not to fucking come to pornhub defense. It's the come to the defense of the sex workers who no one is thinking of and we need to get out there and support them anyway. Yeah guess go buy some porn. Everybody really long winded way of saying go by supporting thomas. For only that's right. That'd be a hell of a way to do it. I think it'd be good to make him make him go through his sixty five minute deep dive. I that's arc. That's the kink that our customers have though so all right thanks so much or porn. Put a pin in this as well all apps. Are you kidding. That little tamale getting they're gonna make a killing on this are we. We don't want to put all the other sex workers out of work. eli maybe. we shouldn't do it. That's true we would destroy the competition Alright thanks again for coming on little cinnamon bun field you. There's no way you're gonna stop. I just started recording Thanks again Best to you in the little muffin and thanks for coming on. Thanks for having.

"This time they hot linked to their website. Which as i mentioned does not mentioned that they are a church. Unless you're really looking for it but this is where it gets super scary again. I'm going to quote so this was my big revelation. And then when i was checking my sources last night daily beast put an article. That is this point so i'm going to quit the daily beast article. I found this. I even telling me about this for a week. So i'll give you credit. I'll i believe you thank you so this. This is the quote from the daily beast article in the immediate. Aftermath of kristaps middleweight. So this is the head of trafficking. Hub started a gofundme fundraiser. To raise money for one of the women. He interviewed the page which he cited which side of the article said a twenty thousand dollar goal. Promising that quote one hundred percent of all the funds will go directly to victims and quote kristof links to this go fund me in his follow up piece three days later the campaign had raised thirty eight thousand dollars adjusted its goal to fifty thousand dollars and changed. Its phrasing to quote all funds received. We'll go directly to support victims and will be managed and dispersed by the rebecca bender initiative a leading organization dedicated to assisting survivors of commercial sexual exploitation and traffic notably. Rebecca bender sits on the board of exodus crime. Wow so by december. The gofundme had raised seventy five thousand dollars and amended the language to include an organization called elevate academy the organization is also run by rebecca bender and is a partner of exodus cry. So here's the thing. There go fund me changed from one. Hundred percent of all funds will directly to victims to now going to the rebecca bender initiative and elevate academy so i checked out. Elevate academy and elevate academy again like exodus. Cry looks legit when you first website visit their website. They claim that quote are specialized. School provides support and education so survivors of human trafficking can heal thrive in pursue their dreams. Awesome love schools for survivors of human trafficking. But he actually go to their page of their website about their courses. The first course they offer is called deeper levels of healing a face based course and when you go to their stiff page aside from the two mentors they have on staff they also have lauren hall. As their prayer director because elevate academy is much like exodus. Cry a church pretending to be something. It's not right as of right now. Just to be clear. Every penny that goes into that go fund me right for one of the victims of sex trafficking mentioned in this article. That is so horrifying right. That money goes to that church or at the very least they will give some of the money to the victim and the church is going to get the rest by the way in the follow up article and i'm sure some people have read this and we're happy about it. It seemed cool to me It saying like you know it has the main girl who was the face of the the first article that he wrote she was kind of cover photo and it says like oh she'll now be able she's in she's checked into a hotel long-term Hotel because of this is that this fundraiser. no apparently not i mean. I don't know what i know. Is that go. Fund me has to tell you who the money's going to and go fund me tells you right now when you click on. That link is that it's going to the rebecca bender initiative and elevate academy okay so i click on that fundraiser. Its up to ninety three thousand. I mean at the very least. She's gotten some of the money at least so that's good but i would. I would have assumed she got all of it. I didn't know this was going to church. And then i think most casual readers will assume she's getting all of it. The picture is of her. I think most casual readers. And contributors to that go fund me would be very surprised to find that a church slash porn group is receiving any of the money from that go fund me. I think it's fair to say and in my experience again just reporting on what churches do i would bet my left nut. The one that makes boys that the church school sees the majority of those funds. And that the young woman who they're supposed to be going to seize an incredibly small percentage yup. I mean she's not in any position to know much about what's going on or complain one way or the other. You know like this is someone who has been horribly. Disenfranchise was living in her car. You know dropped out of school at a young age. I mean i so. This is what i'm saying is i don't know for sure the setup here but this is someone who it strikes me would be in a very vulnerable position and it wouldn't surprise me if it was kind of easy for bad actors to take advantage. Oh my god. This person's in sacramento. Layla mackel wait. That's the that person who was that. Which one is that. that's that's the head of exodus. cry the head of x.'s. Cries in sacramento. God okay. i'm going. Go find her. Okay yeah get a counter interview. So that's a little background on exodus. Cry and elevate academy and a lot of the source and sort of information behind this story. But you're listening to this podcast and you're thinking okay. I agree that uncritically citing a christian science is a bad thing to do. But what about the actual points he makes. So i want to get into the actual points. He makes the ones that you are agnostic about right. So with the exception of the few anecdotes that make up the faces of the article which are admittedly horrifying right. Christopher's main point in the article is that he personally does not know which videos on pornhub our child pornography. Therefore.

"That says ex right and again as a result of that real financial legal decisions have been made that have as i'm going to point out at the end affected thousands and thousands of lives with no recourse point number two and maybe the most important point. I wanna make at the outset. Here is that. I am not here to defend pornhub. Pornhub in my opinion has done some absolutely terrible stuff. They have contributed to sex trafficking. They have knowingly harmed sex sex workers by allowing piracy on their platform but they have not done the things that kristoff claims. They have done right. The claims that kristof makes our anti porn propaganda from a christian group. Which i'm going to get into. And they are aimed very specifically at being able to apply to any porn site or any site that hosts adult performers and spoiler alert for the end of this. This arg we can expect this argument to be used on other platforms like only fans and many and where you and i make our living and feed our children thomas. Oh don't tell them about. Oh okay sorry where to find me. Thomas is only fans. That's the only one. It's actually talking about conspiracies. We don't actually make any money from podcasting. We all from our foot porn. Yeah i didn't think about the fact that you know Many sex workers let alone at a time. When i bet a lot more people do to are horrible. Society and republicans not allowing any meaningful response to the pandemic of a lot of people are probably out of work right now and and might have been even more important than ever that people be able to make a living in this way. Yeah so to be clear. The suggestions that kristoff makes and the solutions that pornhub has implemented will not reduce child porn. They will not reduce sex trafficking on pornhub. What they have done a little skeptical. Well we should. We should get to get into the details of that. But what i will conclude is what they have done. Is they've taken again. Thousands of sex workers. They've taken away their income. Complete income A couple of weeks before. Christmas and made those people incredibly vulnerable sex trafficking trafficking on website without any way to get paid but with anybody's ability to contact them for the only thing they're known for on that website which is sex work. I'm going to get back to that. But that's like the sort of that's the top line. Tld are the next point. I want to make that kristoff again. I want to give him all good. Faith year accidentally repeats. Multiple false claims made by a christian anti-porn propaganda group that would never have been cleared if they were made about any other publisher website right so these claims are specifically designed to hurt sex workers and sex work in general not porn hup and this play has been run before and we'll be run again. It's been run as the esta and foster laws which were again anti-trafficking laws that were touted in the very same way. This was about child porn about trafficking and the result was the loss of income for sex workers and the loss of protection for sex workers. The first point. I wanna make and i've mentioned it. A couple of times is the christian group right. Exodus cry that i believe is behind most. If not all of this article and i can go into. Why believe that but he references them three times in the main article and then two more times in the follow up article. He did the following week without ever mentioning all of the stuff that i'm just about to talk about and that i think will agree when i'm done spelling. This all out is problematic or at least really really fucking weird. Yeah so the first reference he makes to trafficking hub slash exodus. Cry is a sentence early on in the article. He says pornhub provident this fall from a video of naked woman being tortured by a gang of men in china. That's his quote and the source he has for. that is a tweet by a woman named layla. Mickle wait now. Latest was tweet has a few problems. First of all. It's four screenshots with a description that is not backed up by those screen shots right. In fact she fails to mention that. The men in the video are wearing military uniforms. And again i'm not here to defend any genre of porn that abuses women but like it or not the military has nonconsensual sex with the prisoner is a robust genre of porn in asia. It also contains no links or no evidence that that video is from porn up. Now you might be thinking to yourself. Oh of course which you do link to a video of someone being assaulted talk about unlike christopher. I want to give all credit to. I wanna talk about why. Layla might lie because her twitter profile. You see that. She is the founder of trafficking hub dot com which is swanky website that makes lots of similar claims to christopher's article and i believe fed most of the claims that kristoff makes in the article to him. But if we dig a little deeper we can see the trafficking hub dot com while it claims to be entirely separate is entirely funded by a church called exodus cry now. We could do an entire episode about exodus cry and the crazy shit. They do but i've included links to like go down the rabbit hole in my notes about all the stuff that they do. But here's here's the top line about exodus crime exodus. Cry does their best to pretend to be a nonprofit dedicated to helping traffic women exodus. Cry does their best to pretend to be a nonprofit dedicated to helping.
"kristof" Discussed on Sway
"A welcome to a bonus episode of sway with the new york times opinion columnist. Nick kristof will be speaking about my recent interview with mastercard. Ceo ashley ponca. If you haven't heard the episode please go back and listen and if you have well-done you can stay all right. Nick hello how are you. I'm great great to be with you so one of the things. I talked about a lot and i. It was inspired by you by the way. I'm one of your biggest fans You kind of forced j bongos hand. Recently with your reporting on pornhub the company that's profiting off of a large swath of effectively child pornography. How did you find the story. Talk a little bit about the background of that. So years ago. I wrote about the issue of child sexual abuse images on the web and i was kind of just staggered by how much there was and just kind of how grotesque it was you know. I think there is a misperception that A lot of this involved you know teenage girls taking off their tops or something. In fact a lot of it involved prepubescent kids being raped and the numbers kept going up in ways that we're just kind of overwhelming with with technology allowing people to have access everywhere. Yeah and you know this better than anyone but you know we all thought. Certainly i was sort of optimistic about the internet. Empowering people all around the world and you know what it really empowered with some of these big internet companies and so you know when i saw that they were three big and highly irresponsible pornography platforms in the top ten most visited websites in the world. I began to think about doing something about this. So then after talking to some people. I browse pornhub and some of the first videos that i saw were of unconscious. Women being raped and the rapists were showing that they were unconscious by touching their eyeballs and tickling their feet. And things like this and it was just it. I mean it was just horrifying. Are you surprised by how the access was so easy. You know in the case of porn have and i think the other sites i i must say i do think the overwhelming share of the material on it involves consenting adults and. I'm perfectly fine with that. But they seem to have very little interest in trying to keep out millions of people being raped videos of kids and it also just offended me that they were monetize ing these rapes and i talked to some young people who have been trafficked and raped and then those videos were posted on pornhub and you know and then the company was again profiting from those. It is a massive content. Company attracts three point. Five billion visits a month. More than netflix yahoo or amazon and they tend to do what actually other platforms do when there's whether it's political content or anti vaccine content. They hide behind the idea that their platforms not publishers and allows users to upload their own content. Which i think is a lot of the problem rather than with professionals. I guess you know i mean there's this idea who's a professional maker porn and there's lots of those. I know a whole bunch of them in san francisco and they monetize an minutes all consenting and you know adult content but made by adults for adults about adults so in a way it's similar to user generated content in particular which makes it similar to what do you make of this idea platforms versus publishers. Because this is a way that a lot of internet companies get away with it and certainly pornhub. Yeah you know at the end of the day. i do think that whether platforms and publishers. They do have some responsibility for what goes on their site and certainly a public benefit to providing forums and allowing people to post things various kinds but that also i think does come with a responsibility and the same is true of a of a bulletin warid at the local laundromat and there is a public benefit to the community to having that but that laundromat also has some responsibility about things that people post there. Well they don't look at it that way. Though i mean they they make a very big case. That's not just porn hope. It's all the different sites call themselves. Some of them call themselves pledgers. Do you know that word. Our not heard that it's a publisher as platforms. they're not exactly platforms or not exactly publishers. And so it allows them to slip out whatever. The content is in this case. It's hideous abusive porn. Is the young kids so you decided to go at it via the payment method and you sort of baited them to do something about it and you wrote. Call me a prude. I don't see why search engines banks or credit card companies should bolster company monetizes sexual assaults on children or unconscious. Women pay pal can suspend cooperation pornhub which it did last year. So can american express mastercard and visa pay pal was one of the first to move in two thousand nineteen on this issue. Yeah i frankly didn't particularly anticipate that the credit card companies would go ahead. So i was very surprised when they responded almost immediately. Mastercard cutoff purchases. Premium content on porn have not purchases of ads and visa. Suspended them pending further investigation. So well how do you feel about the ecosystem. Pornhub the problem or these companies that facilitate it whether it's even website makers or there's all kinds of vendors at these companies use all over the internet. They're all kinds of players. That are the problem. Obviously a biggest violators or those people who are raping unconscious women or children and posting those videos. You know i. I have some sympathy for the enabler is because in your conversation with j he you know. He mentioned that these are slippery slopes and they are. They're clearly going to be things that i disapprove of. Other people will approve. Have an i. I recognize that but hard choices are inevitable when you run a company and i think that the credit card should also be pushed into drawing a line and i think it's been too easy for them to say. Oh you know. We won't allow purchases of things that are illegal said that in the interview. He kept going align of legal illegal. I don't want to judge people this and that. How do you assess that argument. Because it's very easy to go okay. This is legal. This is not a really easy way to get out of responsibility. Yeah but in a mastercard boardroom. If somebody made a disparaging comment about women are about members of different ethnic groups then that would clearly be a legally protected view it would also be completely unacceptable and that person would be fired. They're all kinds of behaviors. That are legal. That companies simply will not tolerate within the company so i think likewise companies need to recognize sense of broader responsibility. As you know better than i there has been all this talk over the last fifteen twenty years among companies about how they have to honor not just shareholders but stakeholders. That's so new thing left. What you think of. Its inclusion is capitalism compassionate capitalism. I imagine you laughing. I mean it used to be called corporate social responsibility but now it has all kinds of names and probably experts from harvard and stuff like that. You must be like. You're kidding me. You know at some level. I think this is really important. And that when companies do the right thing in sourcing in employment practices that moves the needle in a way that nonprofits cannot absolutely companies. Do it sustainable scalable. It can really important in setting norms. But at the same time you know. It's been almost twenty years. Companies have kind of talked a good game.
How Much Do Your Friends Affect Your Future?
"Stephen. I have a question that was tweeted at us by at death by four. Is the correlation of your five closest friends. A real predictor of success. And where you're going in life. Oh a lake the question. I can see why you like the question to because i know that you care about in study friendship so to me there to central questions. We need to try to answer. Their one is whether there is a strong correlation between your friend group and your future and if so whether there's something about that friend group that significantly causes your future to change or whether you choose friends who will fit the future that you're planning yes. I think that we should get to cause -ality once we get beyond correlation. That's i think the most interesting this question because there is this expression. Look at your five closest friends. That's who you are. And that's you're going to be but this is saying but i've always been very suspicious about saying have you not well if i think of my closest friends whenever by. That's all i care about eighteen. I make the top twelve year number. One always okay. My other rents okay. First of all. They're a lot like me so my friends are all practically manic there so like they're all women they're all around my age. They're all around my educational demographic. I think it's interesting to observe that are closest friends are so much like us. Okay so if that observation is accurate. Let's say in the aggregate then. I would have to think that that's a strike against the argument. In the question. I would think it's more a byproduct of the fact that you choose people to be friends who were kind of moving in the direction that you're moving in. Yeah and it's often called him. Awfully bird's feather tend to flock together. And if that's really the heart of the correlation that because we're so similar we aggregate than that does argue against your friends having a causal effect on your outcome because that's not really what's going on but there is evidence and i'm sure you're familiar with by nicholas kristof focus. Who runs the human nature lab at yale. He's the co author of a book called connect the surprising power of our social networks. And how they shape our lives. He makes an argument that our social circles influence us greatly in terms of emotions and behaviors everything from health politics etcetera and his argument. Is that really what we think of as the individual is actually much more compounded result of the people that we know and listen to. So what do you think of that. Research and argument yeah. Nick is probably the most famous researcher on this idea that our social networks are not only reflection of ourselves but actually cause changes in ourselves and he has this data from the framingham heart. Study which by the way was about as it suggests heart health and cardiovascular disease and so forth but it's also been mined by researchers just because it was a really robust set of data. yes opportunistically. Yeah i believe framingham. Is this little town in massachusetts. And i think the interesting feature of the data set is that because it was in this one geographic location. The people in the data set happen to know each other. And you can map out. Who's friends with whom who's relatives of whom who's married to whom who's tutors. Three degrees of separation et cetera and when nick analyzed this one of the famous findings was the finding that obesity is contagious. In the sense that your weight and your weight change was predicted. Not only by the people you know but the more startling finding is it's not even necessarily the there in your direct circle but maybe the outer circle. Goodbye influence you. Stephen and you happen to know someone else. And i don't even have to know them but my politics or the way. I eat or anything else could go viral as it were in the same way that actual virus goes viral.
"kristof" Discussed on The Nicole Sandler Show
"Too. Often we've in the country we thought of jobs as an income stream and there is now so much evidence that they are beyond that a source of identity, a source of purpose and meaning. To in many cases, social life to in many cases absolutely absolutely and they knit people into a community on and you know now you know then eleven million people lost their jobs since since February eleven million. and. We can't even come up with a you know a bipartisan. Rescue. To support them since the end of July. European countries did a very good job in trying to en- basically paying employers to keep people on the job, and that meant that unemployment didn't go sky high and people didn't self. Medicaid and of course, in countries outside the US they when they even if they do lose their job, they don't lose their health insurance as they do in the US in the US you know a million people because they lost their jobs also lost their health insurance in the middle of a plague and the. Democrats floated the idea of opening having an open enrollment period for the affordable care act for all those people who lost their health coverage with their jobs and the trump administration said no and not only that they're still going to court on November eleven to the Supreme Court to overturn what's left of it to take it away from the rest of us. Again, I mentioned to you I'm a lung cancer survivor. Hello I'm self employed. I Work Outta, my home studio I do this radio show. Without the affordable care act I'm I don't have insurance I. Don't have health insurance I'm wondering Nick Kristof with.
"kristof" Discussed on The Nicole Sandler Show
"It's the Nicole Sandler show. And we made to a Friday barely, but we made it. It looks like for whatever reason Oh, no youtube is not starting and I don't know why I'm having all kinds of. Tech problems. So what else is new? Oh my goodness. We just got back on Youtube and it looks like. It's not gonNA to let us stream their today. So you may just may have to come over to facebook I. Honestly don't know if we're on periscope twitch. Because I'm trying something new and it seems to to not be working so. I don't know. All I can say is. Come try to find US somewhere. It looks like nothing is going on except facebook live. So we are on facebook today in terms of video everything else seems to be kind of Fu bar. I'll try to I'll try to fix it but I'll put a note in the Youtube Chat. Room. But you know we're live at five. To Pacific so I'm at the mercy of the clock. Best laid plans. You know I had a stressful day today in that I had a doctor's appointment earlier. Today I had to go see the neurosurgeon to get an MRI on my brain because of a what we believe is a meningioma. Long story but. Yeah, let me just type Youtube not work I'm typing in the Youtube Chat Room You know it's times like this. I could use a producer not working comb to facebook. Sorry All right. So Anyway, I I was kept waiting for an hour and a half and I was already I was ready to leave and then the doctor came in and it turned out I really liked her. you know such as life today is also just a weird day. It's October twenty third. We are eleven days out from election. Day tensions are high. We made it through the last debate last night we'll get into that in a moment but it was. One years ago today. That my mother. died except she wasn't she she wasn't officially died until forty one years ago tomorrow because she suffered what what what happened is she had leukemia. Making a long story very long story short, but she had leukemia and. what kilter apparently wasn't the leukemia she had. Shannon aneurysm and. She went into the hospital I guess on the twenty second I was in school in away college in Tampa and I got a call from my dad who said you know I tried you said Mom's going to the hospital everything's okay don't worry. And then the next day she fell into a coma. They said she was brain dead. We had to wait twenty four hours of where there was no brain activity before. Turning off the life support it was. Horrible and now forty one years later when October, twenty third and twenty fourth come around you better. Believe I feel it and I'm feeling it extra hard this year because there's so much death around us. There's so much That that is is It's just horrible. An now with Cova know everywhere you go I was out at this doctor's appointment this morning and I'm waiting and waiting and waiting and getting more and more stressed as that hour and a half ticked. And somebody came out of the exam room, an older man wearing a mask, but it was down around his mouth and Chin and I said. It really needs to cover your nose I know. Well, if you know then do it I'm sorry this it's no more. We can't screw around anymore it. This is dangerous. People are dying now all these hospitals in the mid West in the. West in the in the in the as Donald Trump calls them red states are all. CATA- catastrophic. The ICU unit or fill to capacity and it's you know. I don't know why people are screwing around and Donald, trump had another event at the White House today in the Oval Office with very few masks and no social distancing. Unbelievable. And yes. I watched the debate last night and I have some observations in some highlights and lowlights to share with you and our guest today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed because I see him doesn't accept my invitation on skype yet, but he's supposed to join us at the bottom of the hour. He being Nicholas Kristof who has a two time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has a call them in in a twice a week column in The New York Times and he and his wife last year wrote a book called Tightrope. Let me get the subtitle for you because it's a very important part of it tight rope Americans reaching for hope. So they released the book last year and on Monday, the film adaptation of it debuts on the world channel, which I don't have but also world channel. Dot Org and PBS DOT ORG and it. It's a very personal. but difficult film because it's about this disconnect in America it's about poverty and hopelessness thus tight rope Americans reaching for hope and the income gap and the wealth gap and all the other inequities in our society. And I'll tell you you know and it was not an easy film to watch but it's something we should all watch because you notice during this campaign candidates talk about and this is not unique to this campaign. It's every presidential campaign and I've noticed this for A. Number of cycles. Going back they talk about the middle class. They never talk about the people living in poverty and I believe and I don't have facts to back it up I. Don't have statistics. So I'm just saying, I, believe that those living in poverty. Make up the fastest growing segment of our population. Sadly, and with the effects of this pandemic, it's only gonNA get worse. So we'll talk to Nick Christoph about all that but. I WANNA start today with a song that I found online this morning and I know that I'm risking another copyright strike. I know. But I think this is worth it. I really do and please you know the the thing is it's it's black eyed peas with Jennifer Hudson. A video produced by will I am, WHO's The guy? Who did the big? You know the Obama Song? Twelve years ago. Yes. We can remember how powerful that was. Well, this is one of those. And the black eyed peas tweeted out this morning and said Oh my God. This is just brilliant. Everyone needs to watch this and the black eyed peas.

"Now kind of hide. Your security postures not really something you can do anymore Yay under. Management as we all know is huge and so everyone starting to take a harder look at their vendors and getting confidence in them is is something that's really tough to do. On his kind of a big ass and I think just in general. I would imagine just having. I mean if you're dealing with any sort of. Information that you don't WanNa lose you know or or you know have released. You need something to measure your general security against anyway so as I so even just sort of say like. Tool to just sort of figure out where you stand, a good I mean is that does that make sense us I so as a tool for that purpose as well, it can certainly work for that and one of the benefits in that regard, or if you don't work. In a highly regulated industry for instance so like. Maybe you don't have credit card data or you don't have A. Pi or or tons of Pi and you're looking for something to do a security baseline. Is certainly works for that and actually I highly recommend it for that, because if you pick something like one of the nist standards, which you know, we all love the the nist eight hundred fifty three control framework with its hundreds and hundreds of controls, but those are written for the federal government right. So they can be adapted for industry. Obviously, we have a client to do that, but it's definitely not as intuitive as something like ice where it's going to be a lot easier to successfully implemented and adapted to to Your Business. What are some pieces of information that they can get to help guys out in who should who should from your team? You know kind of be contacted initially to help with us. You can reach out to me if you need assistance with. I'd say the biggest thing. Is You know any prospects who are looking war, a security framework, assessment or type of Third Party assurance I would ask them if it's driven by a contract or any sort of compliance or regulatory obligation. because. That's really gonNA drive what path we take them down and unless they have an explicit requirement to do Nist, XYZ or PTR HIPPO ISOS, Kinda the one-size-fits-all like everything else should go towards ice. Oh, because it's the most adaptable and then it's also a service where we're going to offer certification for it awesome. I think that's all I've got. Is there anything else you wanted to touch on now? I think that's a good. Start, all right? We'll Christoph thank you for your. Thoughts guidance on this and. Hopefully our folks that are listening in. If you have any questions, can go to you. Yeah, absolutely anytime work.

"All right, what's up, everybody? This is Zach again and today I am joined by Kristof Christoph Hello. And KRISTOF just because not everyone may know who you are what you do. do you WanNa? Give a little bit of background at what you do in new harbour. So I lead our Information Assurance assessments team. And so we do a wide range of. Risk and compliance, and security assessments. So we're you know we're kind of in that vertical with with some of the traditional quote, unquote audit type. Folks but obviously being new harbor. We Really Pride ourselves on. Having more of a security focused on some of those traditional audit type firm so. Yeah, that's that's what we do. And what kind of audits like what? What would be like an example of some of that stuff that you would do? Yeah so you guys may have heard of Eyeso- or nist or Or Hip all of those are really in our wheelhouse so. you know there's a couple of different flavors? Some are things that I would call compliance based, so that would be more of a hippo or API flavor, and so those compliance rigs have a lot of different requirements that our clients have to follow. That's like centers for Medicaid Medicare and then like credit cards stuff right? Yeah, so. Yeah exactly so the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare. CMS has a lot of. Security requirements, and so we do assessments against that and then the Pi Council. Publishes the P. C. Idea essence. Security requirements. It's a lot of fun, cool and today we're talking ice. Oh correct, yes, so ISOS Kinda like the goldilocks of in my opinion of the security framework, so it's kind of in between all the others and It's one that we're really working hard to Expand our service offerings for new Arbor. And what would be like I guess? I've I think we hear a lot from people that they think they need ice. Oh what are sort of like some examples of companies that you know why they would want to investigate that, and maybe even just sort of an overview of what I so actually is are the I obviously has standards for everything. But specifically for the area that you're specialized in. Yeah, so that's a really good point. Zach so when we talk about. eyeso- at New Harbor. We're talking about ice. Oh Twenty, seven, thousand, one, which is the information security management system standard for.
Does closing schools slow the spread of coronavirus? Past outbreaks provide clues
"Okay let's start this conversation by talking about the number one thing on most kids minds and definitely the number one thing on most parents minds school closings so corey. Why take the kids out of school? Well Emily we've seen in the last few days a kind of tipping point where we went from schools closing. You know here there. On a case by case basis to honestly and just really forty eight hours last week schools starting to close statewide and in most of these places when the decision was made. The didn't actually have that many infections. So you know it. It may have struck people in the moment. Like kind of weird right. Why doing now. Why close if there aren't infections in our media rain so why do that well so I spoke to this guy? Nicholas Kristof. He's at Yale and actually does a lot of really interesting work studying. How ideas spread among other things And they happen to spread kind of like diseases and so when corona virus hit the scene given the interest in this topic and given the fact that you know I'm a physician also specialized in public health and Epidemiology. It was not a stretch for me to become interested in this topic. And so Chris Dacas said. Look yes you you can close the school when there's a case and probably everyone would agree that that is a sensible thing to do and it helps so there's a study. He pointed me to of H One n One. A Flu. Epidemic was about what years ago? Yeah so the study is of Japan's reaction and showed that closing the schools when there's a case made a difference and found that reactive school closures reduce the rate of infections in the community by nearly thirty percent. That is no small number percents so that makes a lot of sense to me but like you said schools in the. Us are closing all over the place even when there aren't a lot of infections. Yeah and I think part of that is because the science around covert nineteen at least in how it spreads is still kind of unsettled. You know. We're not totally clear on how kids can spread it We don't know if say a child you know doesn't seem sick. But is still carrying the corona virus. How will that child impact the people that here she comes into contact with right right like their parents or caretakers exactly so honestly out of an abundance of caution school closures? They limit contact. They limit the possibility of kids getting sick. And of passing along Corona virus to the people they love and Corey. You have an example from history of a time when school cancellations really helped out during a viral outbreak. What was that yeah? This was an enormous flu epidemic back in nineteen eighteen and there's actually a really good research on how U. S. cities responded including What happened to the city's the closed their schools early versus those that didn't so Nicholas Kristof ca says when you look at this research. The results really speak for themselves. If you compare a you know a Saint Louis which closed the schools in advance and kept them closed for longer. Their death rate was three hundred. Fifty eight people per one hundred thousand population but Pittsburgh which waited 'til later didn't keep the schools closed as much. Their death rate was almost three times as high eight hundred. Seven people dying per one hundred thousand population. Wow that is a lot of people. Yeah it's a lot of people And what about? How will that affect families in vulnerable populations? How how will that affect them? I imagined that all this comes with a cost. Oh absolutely and I think this is something. A lot of people aren't thinking about that. You know while keeping schools open has a public health cost so does closing them especially for vulnerable low income families. You know a lot of people don't realize that twenty million kids in this country more than twenty million depend on schools for free breakfast free lunch in some cases free dinner Many of them get medical care at school not to mention the fact that there are lots of parents out there who are working. You know low wage hourly jobs. They can't take off work. They can't work from home. So what happens with these kids? I spoke with Sonia. Santa Liza's she's the CEO of Baltimore City Public Schools which are now closed. And she really summed it up. Well for me are a large number of our students the safest place for them to be actually in school so if you think about this from her point of view in. Baltimore you know. The State of Maryland has closed schools for two weeks. That's a long time for some kids to be home alone. to be coming to distribution centres to pick up what are called. Grab and go meals. But honestly emily really really complicatedness is the fact that CDC released new guidance at the end of last week that said these short-term closures like two to four weeks. They're not even long enough to actually slow the spread of this disease. They might need to go much longer and I know there are a lot of school leaders around the country who are looking at guidance and scratching their heads. Like how much longer we talking about here? Well I mean the governor of Ohio Mike DeWine said on CNN. The Sunday you know. He's closed schools there for three weeks but he said it's perfectly imaginable that this is going to go on a lot longer and it would not surprise me at all if schools did not open again this year. Wow Mollica I want to bring you in on this. Because you've been looking at the ways this can really affect families. Yeah if schools are closed it can definitely put a lot of pressure on families I spoke to Joy Osowski. She's a clinical and developmental psychologist at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. And here's what she said. One of the issues. Is You know a lot of parents need to work. And they cannot work remotely and even if they can work remotely. There are a lot of different kinds of things that need to be done for children. If they're not in school yet puts also much more pressure on parents because there isn't the routine of school so there are more meals at home. There's more care for children needed during the day and so they really have to establish what we would call a new normal anew routine and that way so how can parents create that routine and deal with that well You know she had a lot of different ideas but the one that struck me was that Older children can take some responsibility. I myself am the oldest of five siblings and I helped with my siblings growing up. She says that they could basically watch younger kids and help around the house doing chores and that kind of thing And she says it actually is helpful for the older children and can give them a sense of responsibility a sense that they're like actually contributing to the family in a time of crisis And I asked a soft ski weather. Older kids really do step up to the plate and she says that actually she's found after disasters like Hurricane Katrina for example. Older kids have been really helpful. They're helping younger kids out with schoolwork So parents can lean on them. This older kids do your part of the job description. When you're born you got a job description and it's look after sampling. Yeah and what about talking about the virus itself because I know a lot of families are really scared and there's a lot of anxiety around it and maybe they're not sure what to say? I mean a softy said is that parents need to be informed check the CDC website listen to NPR. And there's really really good news for families on the one end. Kids don't really seem to get very sick and emily. I JUST WANNA add a couple of things to from the episode. I just recorded with my colleague on your comments on parenting and current virus over life kit. When you're talking with kids make sure you're not making promises you can't keep so. Don't tell them. Oh no you won't get it because you don't know that and I always liked to channel Mister Rogers whenever I can which is look for the helpers trust in the helpers know that the helpers are out there our country is full of doctors and experts and professionals who are there to help take care of us when we need them and that will be a comfort to kids. This is the time for the helpers for

He makes him they. He makes them very uncomfortable. If that's true and I think it's okay that the Democratic Party is uncomfortable right now. We have a transformation that we need to do within our party. We have two wings right and you need both wings to fly. You need the progressive in the moderates. I always say you need all shades of blue and so it is clear it is clear that is Democrats for the past ten years. We've been talking about this. Rising American electorate that. It's younger that it's going to be more diverse than women are going to be more progressive. Guess what they're here and guess what they want Bernie Sanders were this. This is the first line in my book. Bless you for that. Many shades of blue is will progressives moderates feud while America Burns. And if you take the earlier part of the conversation do they really want to say that these differences between Medicare for all or a public option when they all want to cover all Americans? They get decent healthcare. Are Those so important that you're going to have a debate like that in the country sort of turns around and reelect this president. Who for all the reasons you said in the first part of the show presents a real crisis? Oh and I think there's a point related to that and I bet this will resonate in Nebraska that right now politics so polarized that there are an awful lot of Democrats. Uc every trump voter in two thousand sixteen as a racist and a Bigot. And that is not clarifying and not helpful winning those voters. This is a true by one of the reasons why they were Democrat candidates that actually started resonating early some with some Republicans people have on the right of a fondness for Tulsi Gabbard there like Andrew. Young like people that are at least willing to go. Some of the Democrats are such wins. You can't even get them to go on Fox News. President of the United States is the latest sexiest poll has Bernie losing to trump but bet closer than all the other. Democrats forty-seven Fifty Nationally. He beats him in Pennsylvania by four. Look all these pundits so I hear say things like well. Bernie will lose forty-five states shut up. I don't know what the fuck talking about. Have you never know?

"Pulitzer Prize for Journalism in Nineteen Ninety for their coverage of the Cinnamon Square protests as China correspondent. For The New York Times Nick Kristof is of course the longtime columnist for the New York. Times he won a Pulitzer Prize for his commentary. There too but now they've turned their attention. Closer to home with a book called tight rope Americans reaching for hope and it's a really personal examination of what's happened to the middle class. In many of the small towns of America including the one in which Kristof grew kristof and Wudunn who are married came to the Institute of Politics a few weeks ago for a live recording of the X. Files to discuss their journey this book and the State of our nation Nick Kristof and Sheryl done welcome to the Institute of politics in keeping with the time. I'm going to hand my questions to the chief justice and he will ask them for you know really in this very very powerful book tight rope. You're talking about the journey of Americans in small towns and rural areas and inner cities and forgotten places all over this country. But I wanNA talk about your Stories Nick. First of all let me start with you like myself. You're the son of an immigrant from Eastern Europe. Who had his own Harrowing Journey to get here? Want you share a little fat? Yeah my my dad's family. They were Armenians who were living. It was actually kind of funny. My my dad would describe him. If you ask his origin he would say who was from Romania. His sister was hey she was Armenian and his brother would say Polish and my dad's spoke to his brother when he would call and Polish into his sister when she would call in Romanian mixed up family. Flag would change periodically overhead and then in nineteen forty the area which was at that time. Romania were seized by the Soviet Union. Family was meanwhile a busy spying for the free. Polish government part of network sending information back to London and so the family ended up. Being various people ended up getting executed by either the Nazis or the Soviets. My Dad was in prison for He he fled was in a concentration camp in Yugoslavia for a while and eventually made his way to France and decided that France was not a place that had a future for a Slavic immigrant and began to dream about coming to the US and eventually made it not speaking his name when he came over here was Vladislav Christoph bits of it all right okay. Three attempted that and he showed his name to create. Yeah he arrived and he would say his name. Whiskas DZAFO VEG. And you know people tried to spell it and that was pretty helpless shortened it to Kristof. I thought it was because he had the foresight to know that Kristof would look better in a bio byline. We'll his first purchase on arriving in the US to teach himself. English was a Sunday New York Times. There's something poetic about there is there. Is He ultimately became an academic? That's right he and your mother were both academics. That's right so my dad arrived in Oregon not speaking English and worked at a logging camp for a year or to earn a little bit of money to learn English and then went to Reed College and studied political science then applied to University of Chicago. Political Science Department and was initially told it was not accepted the HD program. His professor appealed and said this is a brilliant get and so they took him and my mom was studying here at the International House. One more marriage produced excellent and they ended up at Portland State and then they were both at Portland State. My mom teaching art history. My Dad Teaching Political Science you ended up in Yam Hill Oregon. The way you described in this book and I want to get into the details of the book untold bit later. Because we've got some other business do Cheryl about your story and how we got to this place but it didn't sound like a haven for academics. We were real. We were way beyond the normal commuting range so most people in Portland. You know lived in Portland or nearby but my parents really wanted to have a farm and so we had this farm and Yom Hill and they were pretty much the only people commuted to Portland and so it was I mean I obviously had this connection to that larger world but I was deeply embedded in the community. I was very active in future farmers of America and the school was a you know kind of very typical farm town school. You knew you want to be a journalist way back then why so when I was when I turned sixteen and got a driver's license. I the local county newspaper hired me to write and it was. I just couldn't believe that I was getting paid to go. Talk to interesting people and write stories about it. It's not the usual teenage about what you do when you get your first drivers. Go ahead but it was but it was a great way when you're sixteen. That turned out to be a great way to impress. Sixteen year old girls and it. It really was a I love. I love the writing. I love the just aesthetic pleasure from writing. I like being around interesting people and the idea of being paid for it was truly incredibly cool. I was later in danger coming law professor but I escaped that fate fortune. Yeah good for you good for you. As journalists I applaud your Judgment Cheryl. Your family had a classic immigrants story as well only one generation earlier. Tell us about that. We're actually trying to prove are working class credentials. I would say that I actually even come from the peasantry. China my grandparents were from tiny little villages In Very Agricultural Guandong province both of them escaped to Macau and then to Joe Johns and the Golden Mountain here in the US One. You say escaped escaped from well. They were playing really poverty. I mean everyone was trying to get to sort of the promised land here in the US and So because it was extremely impoverished there and so they were able to scrape their way to get to to the. Us Let me ask you both You tell these stories and they have this common element which is people who wanted to come to the promised. Land wanted to come to America. We're in this period now where we have a sign on the at the border saying refugees need not apply immigrants discouraged. Do you look at this. Current debate through the prism of your family experiences. Oh of course. Clearly the American dream still exists for the most part for people outside of the US. I think that what we actually write about in tight rope is that for many Americans. The American dream is broken but the allure and the magic of the American dream is still alive and well and the rest of the world which is why so many people want to come here. But what does it mean? If we closed down and say don't apply in today's context. My Dad were never be admitted. I mean people would see him as somebody from potential saboteur potential spy from an enemy part of the Soviet bloc and said we don't need more refugees. I mean I'm struck that when my dad was on this ship. Arriving in New York there was a woman from Boston who was on the deck watching with him and my dad's no English but she said him Welcome young man and then she corrected herself and said welcome young American and he was just so blown away that here he is. He's never set foot in America. He can't speak English. And this American woman is welcoming him as a already as a young American and that deeply moved him and he spoke about it. And it's kind of the opposite of the attitude that we're seeing your grandparents certainly would have failed the current tests now especially as established by the Supreme Court just in the last few days because they were peasants they were probably not educated for they're worth would be absolutely in fact my grandfather on my father's side had someone else's papers when he came across didn't even own papers but it's remarkable that in my my parents went to college so in that one generation You know they went from rags to really intellectual riches and so. It's still possible to do that. And it's really a shame that we don't think that people who look though they're grovelling INS and starving and can't get anywhere. We don't think that they can actually rise up when they really can. Well speak to me from the standpoint of you're steeped in business and economics speak to me. About what the impact of it is to the country beyond what it means to the people who get to come or don't get to come but what does the infusion of immigrants mean to the country. Well it's a lot of different things on different levels so of course you have technology people who are technology experts. We are homegrown. We are home growing of people who study stem but there are a lot more people in Asia who study stem much more intensely and so we are obviously the technology companies. Want more people who are intellectually. They're gonNA move towards the Canadian model. Where you're GONNA get all those people that's one thing but still there's a restriction on that but in Japan we actually when we were there because Japan also very fearful of immigrants and they started letting people in partly because they had to do the jobs that no other Japanese wanted to do The the three Ds Dangerous Dirty and disgusting and here. We have a similar phenomenon because what are the jobs that a lot of the immigrants are taking their jobs that Americans really don't want to do so in Oregon? We see that. There are huge numbers of immigrants who are incredibly productive doing jobs and actually we have an experiment on her own farm farm. There you you family farm. My mom is transformed the farm and purposed it for weather uses and we still. We still have been an orchard for a long time a cherry orchard. Now we're actually changing over to making growing grapes and apples and we kind of did an experiment and that we hired middle aged white men who we thought okay. We want to give them jobs. They're struggling so we give them jobs. But you'll also have some immigrants who are on on the farm to working and the contrast is unbelievable. I mean it's and we've had other businessmen tell us that if I'm GONNA pay a local worker an American worker thirty dollars an hour. She takes him twice as long to do anything. And if I pay a Mexican worker fifteen dollars an hour I get so much more productivity out of him it makes me. It makes absolutely no sense for me. Ever hire the local American worker. My business could not survive. The local American worker probably looks at this an entirely different way which is and. I'm hoping they don't listen to your podcast. We're trying to build audience. You guys met as competitors. You went to business school. You got a masters in business from Harvard. You went to Princeton and we're Rhode Scholar. You went to Harvard. Where Rhodes scholar and then you both became journalists. I don't have time to ask you how one goes to get an MBA to become a journalist but nonetheless there we are.

Americans on a Financial 'Tightrope'
"On January fourteenth in the first of a year long series of Book Review Live Events. My colleague Jennifer Celaya the critic here at the New York Times interviewed Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn about their new book tightrope. The following is a little bit of an excerpt from from that event and that conversation. I wanted to start off by talking about the genesis of this book project. which you know is it's really interesting for a variety of reasons but one of the things that struck me was that this is your fifth book together and your other books have taken you across the world you've looked at AH poverty initiatives Kenya you've looked at education for girls in China? And you know this is something. That's much closer to home home. I mean literally is home for you neck. So can you tell us a bit about how you decided to write about Yam hill well. It's partly exactly that we were traveling around the world covering humanitarian crises. And then we would go back to my beloved hometown of the Am Hill. Where my mom still lives on the family farm and we saw a humanitarian crisis unfolding there and You know I my old school busses. This is kind of a network of old friends and you know we realized that about a quarter of the kids on that bus had passed passed away from consequences of Drugs Alcohol Suicide Ruckus accidents and and and related pathologies. And this was. This wasn't just one towns problem. This was a nation's problem and that there is something of a great social depression Russian happening across the country even in the Great Depression. Life expectancy didn't fall the way does. Now it's three years in a row in the US and it seemed to us is that this wasn't getting adequate attention that we could write about it and to some degree. Use My this town that I care very very deeply about as a narrative thread to tell that story nick and channel I I want to talk about the themes in this book on the subject took the spokane the issues and the questions that it raises because those are really important. The really urgent and I think it's something that everybody needs to think about and confront but I it did want to have a bit of a process question because I think there's a number of people I know maybe myself included. Who the idea of writing a book with one Spouse House seems maybe complicated and so this is your fifth book together and I just wanted to know a little bit about how that works the division vision of Labor? What happens when you disagree about something was so I write the subjects and he writes the verbs? We each right half a book but the Nice thing is that you only have to write half a book somehow magically appears to be a whole book but we we are we do have very similar views have a slightly more sort of economic business taken. He is slightly more sort of political socio economic. Take so it's actually very complimentary and we do discuss things a lot We you know the treatment of certain topics we really do discuss. We each right sections We don't necessarily know what's going to be a full chapter in the very beginning and then we mix and match and then our editor speaks up and then this chapter the two goes to chapters sixteen and sixteen goes to chapter four. And you know. There's a lot of mixing and matching and moving around when editing. Of course the voice of the book is very much in a unified voice. I mean do you end up going over each other's chapters just to make sure that we coast constantly totally editor I mean and that's because we were. I'm I'm a former report but we're both sort of journalistic experience and so we're just used to being edited fair. That's we're still married so one of the things that I noticed in the book from the from the get goes that you start off with some some really arresting analogies so you make mention of Dante's inferno you call the situation in America Today Today Twentieth Century futile them. I think you know and I think for a number of Americans. Those are really striking. Maybe startling analogies and I was wondering during what did you mean when you decided to use those those words so we talked a lot about that because they are very striking images and we used to to think that when we were traveling around the world visiting some of the places both in China and other other parts of the developing world that the poverty and the pain and the suffering that we saw their overseas was of a dimension that was just far greater than anything that one could see here here in America and then when we started learning more about what was going on in our own backyard. We started learning a lot more about how the pain and suffering that people were. Were feeling here and it really is about the human condition and it's about just the Catharsis sometimes but also the intense searing depression that that people feel and so it really is very comparable it was it was surprising surprising to us and shocking to us. And if you look back at what is happening in many towns across America. It isn't inferno for these people and for these families. I mean we were really searching for metaphors to Kinda grab people by the Lapel and high offered the metaphor. I'm going to go but great great social depression you know. At least in the Great Depression there was an enormous effort through government policy to address it and mitigated and it feels as if now there is this horrendous suffering out there and there isn't a similar government effort to address it and indeed that that suffering isn't all that even noticed by those who were doing better at in the first class deck. There's a party going on.

Tear Down This Wall: The resistance
"The I on curtain was not the creation of a mindset or a system which had any time for dissent. The curtain was at its height. Seven thousand in Columbus of wires watchtowers walls fences minefields and sentry posts stretching from the Arctic Tundra Finland to the Black Sea coast of Greece. This old dedicated to preventing captive people's from fleeing somewhere they might speak think and vote freely. Nevertheless there was resistance courageous inventive and surprisingly rarely violent it took foams as different as the imprison nations of Eastern Europe would different in this third episode of the foreign discs series reflecting on the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We look at Poland where the regime Asia was confronted by a trade union and joined by Pope the country then known as Czechoslovakia where revolution was led by poets playwrights and rockstars and Romania the only one of eastern Europe's liberation struggles of nineteen thousand nine to descend into bloodshed. This is the foreign desk. My impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was going to happen as they were going to get way because there was nothing credible calm about the way people are going about the strike. There there was no panic. There was no drinking no rushing around people were just waiting for the government to give in and the government did get enough to series of public negotiation. I mean we knew something something was going on but we still wear not sat in that be able to live to see the end all the system. We knew Tom Unsustainable in the long run but most of our perspective close sustainable for longer than our lives about the thing about people on television television or a heads of the secret believes in the army and they were giving contradictory instructions to people in the field but there was fighting on on the streets. Nobody knew who was on whose side and the sea turns out of course neither there or no sides there was a single side and the churches were along and they had no loyal troops in August. One thousand nine hundred eighty a group of workers at the Lenin shipyards in Gdansk went Own Strike they called their fledgling trade union solidarity and hoisted a Groovy flag based on Poland's national banner with the Solidarity Name emblazoned in red on the White Stripe in cheerful friendly font within a year of its foundation solidarity had ten million members within within a decade. It had the country a few weeks after the Berlin Wall fell solidarity leader Falesa an electrician by trade was elected. President President of Poland Kristof Bobbin. Ski Is the President of Union and Polska a pro European think tank in Wausau. He's also the former Warsaw correspondent Brandin of the Financial Times. He picks up the story in Gdansk. In the summer of nineteen eighteen to strike in the shipyard had two phases one was a phase which which went from about this Thursday to the Saturday afternoon when the shipyard authorities the management gave into the demands and tell people go home that he said we've we've got the money or go home and at that point it was. The younger workers also led by young dissidents. I suppose who went round the ship out saying don't go home. The strike is not over people out there in the restive discuss still on strike. They were driving around in this small electric electric trucks telling the people not to go home and a lot of people go home but enough state from the Saturday afternoon and I arrived on the Saturday Saturday afternoon and I saw young people saving shy making it continue into the Sunday. On the Sunday people started coming back on the Monday morning people came back and strike got underway big strike on underway. So actually I had the impression that it was actually a young people's movement at that moment it was saved by the young people by the shipyard workers wasn't quite solidarity then because it was formed as it were off the strikes extended but my impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was gonna happen this they were going to get their way because it was incredible calmness about the way people we're going about the strike. That was no panic. There was no drinking. There was no rushing around people. Were just waiting for the government to give it and the government did give enough to series the public negotiations and is the reason for those public negotiations were a certain number of Social demands pay demands but also the the main demand with for this supplements of independent unions

"kristof" Discussed on The Future Labs
"Cbs newman cells to predict the effectiveness of new cancer. Drake's kristof thank you for joining us today. Thanks for having media. So let's start with the turbines story. How and when did you decide to create this company. So basically kind of road from bj's which was basically about dynamic analyzes center or something like that so just beetle my background. I'm originally a computer science. This but solid Tied broke and ended up having a biochemistry and what. I cylinder intellectually educational Term because as an engineer you're pretty much use to your relations berkey and issue simulate enacted circuit you. You can't be like depending on the field to got ninety posture. That work life and death is not the case biology where even the best formulated experiments can pads so by the measurement that Biology are considered considered directly. Guy is easy to save beckley. Let's say and this is not about five percent of the difference if you're say by fry any biology experimentally Successful example that are there. Was these experiment where we'd stem says where they toured normal says Before jacob zuma says back into steps out of so-called es republicans steps and this was a great advance mom bought turns out that the success rate for forties and the sexually sexual pretty wentz. Okay so six was he. Instead they managed to turn wildly five percent of the says since ninety five percent failure rate. We kind of happy about about how we affected says. So there's that assad propensity between what actually happens human south and what our understanding allows for and so basically the idea was death how to make turn biology into some kind of jerusalem a because because if we would be able to that we would be able to talk on her stat missing pieces because if you have some relation the simulation may or may not burke realized but as though doesn't have had a simulation had system he gets too late you can go back and see rock waffen role and how you could make it more suitor wasn't gonna alive and this could be much by way off figuring out the final bits at this is a human biochemical humans basically. That's that was the idea of a be gap between an experimental evidence. An amount of things that work versus the amount of things doesn't work so based on that he Steel very scattered and patchett patchy at times. And they're still many unknown pathways. Different control mechanisms. That we don't really know about. So how do you overcome these new model. And how was that model. Create the originally. So what does we have a significant bob of human says at this woman happy companies by helping them understand. What makes the doctor or what makes them fail. And we do this. By taking braga and trying to sue experiments or says the terabytes secret to sack the art of ed Individual war for example week at do off patriot. Nations knocking out the few genes. A he's actually something. That's brig Fast to do as a safer in biology when he is on the computer is just a few beats Of millions of these experiments. We actually do rob kind of these number of orson. The project and using this vast amount of data Recorded on says that are either not available or maybe cannot be even generate out. We get used these day. Talk to find the on the phone. Companies not for we -tations suppose diaries a certain combination of dacians which seeds that increases the sensitivity all for assertive drive and we can tie down that they should be the settled edition. Sanitizing the nation. So if you if you would include Arun scheme it would have your signal to noise ratio and you could to recruit patients who are more likely to be affected by all the other. We could also give the company's mckay. Shawn's patrick we see the results and they could use a that for testing and Trials to circumcisions and so then you on the round clinical trials on patients who are all slightly or who the Abc and ways all these data coming from the one that he used to make your basic simulated sell the currently we have pre prominent layers one.

Certainly we don't we need to take these to the personnel at the tissue level and these that we have to add number earlier. So we get say you were simulate kind of saline or the saffron sensitive issue and so you get the genome tissue which data us or the person or gortat said i which has us wetter debts artem rotting whether certain proteins burr in the mall work into mojo or not.

Kellen Moore Holds Key to Jason Garrett's Future
"For a lot of Cowboys fans. Hell will freeze over when Jason Garrett no longer has a job. And at the moment, he does not have an extension segue. He does not have an extension to be the Cowboys coach beyond next season. And there this is a real weird way of of things working today. They made an announcement. You don't get a contract extension. Why would you announce that we're not extending him because he got a call from Mark Cuban? And they said, hey, we're about to make this blockbuster deal. And he goes oh good people won't keep asking me about Jason Garrett. So I'm gonna go ahead and release this. So tell me when the trades going to happen. And I'm going to news dump it, right? Then like, you always see like politicians do this and the Friday evening news downpour when they hope nobody's paying attention. And so they tried to slip it into the Kristof trade, and they're like, oh, by the way or yes. So base. The news early today. I think it was around noon, we got the Kellen more news and the Cowboys relied Kellen Moore will be the offensive coordinator. And he will call the plays for the Dallas Cowboys. And then you're right around later in the day no contract extension for Jason get right now. Here's one of the things, and I wanna talk about Kellyanne more a little bit. And how he's going to help Dak. Maybe give Dak a different perspective on the way. They should go about things deck loves him. Dak said he's a super genius on when it comes to being creative with plays. You called them that this morning was Sean and RJ. I like that. That's a lot of superlative. I I don't know. That's not in that order. But it was one of the gene young genius FINA. Arms is what he threw out there. And that's that's great. I love hearing that from Dak I I am very interested to know how they are are planning to expand on what is already learned what that can do. And what that should be doing in the future. I'm interested to know more about that. And maybe we can talk about that. And a lot of a lot of Cowboys fans are gonna say, Nope. Not gonna work. Nope. No chance now going gonna work killing more stupid. I can't see he's a he's terrible. And then Dax no good there. That's what a lot of Cowboys fans feel and there's nothing that can change their mind until next season. And so there's going to be a lot of bait about it beyond that. Now, one of the reasons I think. He got the position is the Jason Garrett does not have an extension. Jason Garrett is going into his final season. And a lot of times you see a lame duck coach. Yup. And when that happens teams, give up coaches come in his last chance efforts to hey, we're gonna I'm gonna bring in this guy bringing this guy. Why didn't they go out and bring in the greatest football mine to help Garrett in this last possible effort in telling more Jason Jason Garrett. You're right. He's the one do I get told. How smart he is? He's the wonder can when it comes to football. And I think though Jason Garrett has had a lot of say on his coaching staff. Think Jason Garrett is that was one of the things that he was like, I don't want to get caught in this whole like you hire my assistance before I before I get hired thing. Like he did with Wade, right? He was like I wanna be able to have control that. And I think that's one of the things he actually has control of. I mean, he fired Paul Alexander. And he. He was recruiting Hudson hawk to come back. And hey, we gotta work on this offense of line while we're at it. I'm moving I'm elevating Marc Colombo. So how how yes Hudson? How terrible Bruce Willis move. It wasn't terrible. I've seen more than ten times hands. All right. So yes, India McDowell is gorgeous. But in but in this whole situation you've seen him make things and even Jerry yesterday said Jason is going to have an announcement very soon. When I when he said that he didn't say I'm going to have an announcement, very soon. He didn't say the Cowboys are going to have an announcement very soon. He said Jason because Jason's the one making the decisions on his coaching staff, and you saw the video you saw the weird video clip of Jason standing there staring at Kellen Moore while he was talking to Russell Wilson right behind. Russell wilson. Russell Wilson steps out. And Jason just staring at him. Like. Yeah. That's what I want you to do. I want you to say those things. So he got a really good. Glimpse of offense coordinator Kellen Moore. But I think the other thing is killing Moore's not a threat. There would be nothing worse than Jason GARRETT'S last year approving look I can coach this team and having some outside force that he brings in that says. You know, we're not that good. There's still a chance I could keep the job. I could be the interim coach mid season if our offense just isn't clicking. And then, you know, he's gone. I get my chance to prove that I could be the head coach you go out and get a veteran offensive coordinator. There's a chance that happens easy. I got bad news for him that threats already there. It's just on the other side of the coach he thinks Chris Rashard. Yeah. And that's fine. It's even better to not have another threat. Right. You're not have some what I think is going to happen. And I think he looks at killing more and says, okay. This is my chance to start my coaching tree. Scotland a hand wasn't going to be part of a coaching tree. Hey, this is a chance to grow somebody, and I can grow this guy can grow Marc Colombo. I can grow these this this offense of side of the ball. And I can be the guy that did that or he's going to be gone. And I think that more is not a threat to him. So he just says, okay, I'm gonna you're gonna do everything. I ask you to do. I will have control over you and your offense, and we will have good input together. But I'll have control over what you do. It's not going to be taken away from me. And that's the way I see. That's the reason that Kellen Moore is the offense coordinator of this team. And look at what his how quickly evolved for him. This is nobody does this. Nobody goes from broken ankle to backup quarterback. Broken ankle loses job to Dak to backup quarter. Back to quarterbacks coach to offense coordinator as quickly as he did. Nobody does this. Can I ask you a question is it at all possible that had nothing to do with Garrett? And it's going down like this. Because that's what the people who really made the decision decided. I don't think. So man, I think Garrett I think Garrett made this decision. Okay. I really do. And I think it's because one of the things you look at Scotland hand why did he have the job because Garrett new his offense new his tendencies and said I want that as my offense. And if you bring something else in it's something that's completely different that has nothing to do with what gear at once. And I think in Kellen Moore is a guy that will still work within the the structure of what Jason gear at once. And I really do think that they gave him a lot of power on who they brought in who they bring in for these positions because. They had somebody else in mind for the offense of the offensive line position didn't work out, and they had panicked and go do that. I mean, even even said that he had a lot of power whenever it came to Chris Rashard and bring him in that he was kind the last the last call on that. And obviously Jerry approves it at the end of the day. But he was kind of the last one and said, yes, this is the one I want, okay. And Marinelli being around as long as he has to has been a guy that he's always wanted around. I what Cory most me doesn't want. What you're saying to be exactly what's going on? In part of me thinks that. You're obviously, you've got a good theory running here and seeing some of the evidence that that's dropped off as kind of laid the seed for this to be what is actually happening. I just go back to when Jason Garrett was on with Sean and RJ, and they asked him what all was going is everybody safe. And is there do you see any changes in his immediate answer was no, I don't remember what I said. And then he had to get his then he had to get his mind changed by upper management. The no, no there's gonna be stuff that's going to happen. And I also think that they knew exactly what they had in Kellen more. Now, we're the we know it or not or whatever's going to happen if they're right. I have no idea, but you go back to when he was doing his quarterback training when he was about to be drafted. And he started explaining what you needed to have happened was basically the same ideas that we see from McVeigh as far as you need to show them a lot of things. But do what you need what you do. And you you you use an offense that has some smoke and mirrors and the ability to move players were you want them. So you can get the best match ups for your players and us what your players can be right. That's a great offense of scheme. That's a great offense a theory. Now, he's able to do that. I think they're putting this in place because I think Jerry Jones wants to see Garrett when I think Jerry Jones wants to be. Proven. Right, adjacent -solutely. Then what he's noticed is that Jason Garrett style of offense is doing it with what they have currently here and he wants to change and he saw a change available
