Philadelphia public school teacher worries about 'conservative' parents listening in on virtual classes
"A teacher in Philadelphia that I find not surprising but unexpected that somebody would actually say it out loud. As you know, an awful lot of Americans are facing Ah, fall where their kids do not go back to government run bricks and mortar schools. They will do some on line or distance learning. I don't see the problem with that. In fact, I think having heard from parents who are doing that with their kids right now, and they were doing it even before China virus arrived, it'll actually be a better solution. The problem is the government run public schools populated with union represented teachers. They say. We don't want to do this because they realize that one's parents and students and taxpayers are given a choice. They may decide that the choice of distance learning work so well for their family that their kids never go back. To a bricks and mortar government school. And that's bad news for all those union represented teachers. Well, one teacher, the admission I mentioned a moment ago. This is the one that this teacher in Philadelphia and I have a feeling there's more than one out there Fact I'd love to get a call from one of them. He worries out loud. He tweeted out that he worries the conservative parents are going to listen in on some of the virtual classes. I mean, if your kids are learning at home, they're doing distance education, and you hear a teacher starting to shovel out. Ah lot of political propaganda. That some of the parents might actually object, and I hope they dio this guy Matthew Kay teaches English at the Science Leadership Academy, which is a public school in Philadelphia. Over the weekend, he tweeted out that he's concerned about the damage that parents might cause if they over here, lessons on topics like gender and sexuality and race. The daily wire reports. So far this fall. Virtual class discussions will have many potential Spectators, parents and siblings in the same room. Where will never be quite sure who's over overhearing the discourse? What does that do to our equity and inclusion work? He then described how conservative parents are his chief concern. Listen what he's worried about his teachers. There used to be able to shovel stuff into your kidsheads, and you never find out exactly what it is. You may have one or another child come home and say, Boy, the teacher went on a rant about Donald Trump today or went on a rant about black lives matter or went on a rant about sexuality. And the parent hears it. But there's no way to prove it. What happens when parents can actually hear the lessons? Frankly, I'd be happy if parents were able to hear all of the lessons that their kids are subject to. And if they find a reason to object to it, then, for goodness sake, call the school board called the superintendent and to say You can't do that to my kids. Parents should have the right to do that. And now that

"lars" Discussed on The Eddie Trunk Podcast
"Rick of metallica interview number two is with Robert deleo of stone, temple pilots both of these interviews this week need a little context. So let me give them to you first lars. So the deal is that if you are a listener of my show. Trunk nation on Sirius Xm one. Oh six. Then you know that from time to time I do this feature called the trunk top twenty where I come up with a list of my favorite songs from a certain artist, and then the following days after my list is revealed I, let you call in with your lists and you're twenty greatest songs from that artist. So last week I did that with METALLICA and it was probably not surprisingly one of the biggest. Ones I've done in terms of audience participation and involvement, and just I mean so much fun with the Catalog Metallica has you can imagine how everybody would have a different view and a different opinion in those make for the best top twenty's also you know they've got so many songs in so many records that makes for a great one as well. So I was doing the top twenty I had revealed my list and I reached out to lars and asked him If, he would be willing to call in to the show and give us his list of his personal top twenty metallica songs. So Lars called me the day before and we talked off the air and he had said to me goes you know I, would I just don't feel comfortable making a list of my own songs which I totally understand. It's not something everybody wants to do he said, but I would like to call in and just shoot the shit with the a little bit and give some context about some of our songs or talk about some of the ones that are showing up on people's Lists. So course I said, yeah, that would be awesome. Let's do it. And, originally, he said, let's make it a surprise. He didn't want me to pre promote. He was going to do it and then an hour before he called in. METALLICA Social Media Tweet it out that he was going to be on with me so that Of, put the word out, which is all great. So what you're about to hear is lars calling in in the middle of what was a Metallica countdown show where people calling in with metallica lists of their favorite songs, and it's it's just sort of a wide ranging loose conversation where we get into some stuff about the many covers that metallica did. Of the landmark songs just very loose, just kind of hanging conversation but understand it was done around this list of people calling in top twenty songs. So that's the first interview. Anytime, you get a chance to talk to lars is just awesome I mean one of the things I've said it all the decades I've. Done stuff with the guys in metallica known the guys and. They're they're huge part of my personal history coming up starting a metal show back in eighty three. But one of the things said about them and I stand behind this and I think it's more true. The never is the fact that they forgot what it was to still be fans regardless of the fact that they are one of the biggest bands on the planet. They're still fans at the end of the day. They still remember what it is to be a fan and I've always respected that among other things so much about the guys in Metallica and no further proof needed than the. Fact that he just called in you know this was not some sort of big structured thing. I mean look I'm fortunate enough to know him and be able to get in touch with them and drop them a text but I mean he said Yeah I'll call in it's let's just see what goes on and just talk a little bit. So it's just it's amazingly cool because you're talking about a founding member of without doubt across all genres of music, one of the biggest bands on the planet and he's always been that kind of guy and I just think it's great. So Lars First Second. Robert deleo of Stone Temple pilots. Now, the context on this is also important because the day Robert called in to my radio show last week stone. Temple. Pilots were about to do a live ticketed streaming concert where they were playing core in its entirety. You're gonNA, hear that discussed in this interview. However. The obviously that's already taken place. It's done. It's happened. It happened last week. So keep that in mind the concert we're talking about and he was promoting has already taken place. But I get a chance to see it because I was out but. I'm sure they did a great job. They're great band and it's really cool that they did this I hope and I don't know I asked Robert this I hope that they go through the rest of their catalog. It would be really cool if they go through the rest of the catalog and do. Other records start to finish. I think that would be awesome but he didn't sound too committed to wanting to do that although. You know how listen? And see you take from it so anyway. That's what we have. We've got lars. Ulrich I Robert deleo vest. EP Second. Just. Huge stuff and I hope.
iPhone Photography award winners announced ahead of next iPhone release
"Which iphone should I buy? Yes. Were nearly in August and just a few weeks away from an apple will introduce the latest iphones devices that they are sure to tell us or so state of the art in advanced we'll feel silly on old phones right? Well hold onto him a little longer. The question takes on new found relevance at least for me with the winners of the annual. Photography awards which were just announced. This contest attracts photographers from all over the world to submit their best, and you really don't win anything but praise. But that's okay. Here's your headline. One of the winners one for a photo taken on a ten year old iphone four. Not The ten series, not the tennis upgrade from twenty, eight teen or the phone with the best iphone camera to date the eleven pro. An iphone four. So, do you really need that new phone with the best camera of course, not granted the SPEC sound pretty puny compared to today's standards five Megapixel and seven twenty p video as opposed to twelve megapixel camera and four K. video on the Levin pro plus the addition of three lenses to work with Super Wide Angle Wide Angle and portrait. Now. The iphone four shot was of three people in. Peru for the people category the grand. Prize winner went to a photographer who shot on the IPHONE ten from a few years back while first place went to a photographer from India shooting on the twenty fourteen era iphone six. Now I could argue with you until I'm blue in the face while the latest cameras are better than the old ones. But the fact is for most people, it just doesn't matter brownies and instant matic's were the cameras of the masses when I was growing up not fancy lars there's a reason for this
AP Switches to Sony
"This is digital story podcast number, seven, forty, nine July, twenty, eighth, two, thousand and twenty today's theme is. Resting on your laurels can hurt you. AP Switches to Sony. I'm Derek Story. Prior to the murless revolution, cannon had the camera industry pinned to the Mat. I remember attending an invite only precedent at. Back in the day and marveling at their confidence and swagger, and for good reason, they were dominant. But soon after serious tiger FY began to evolve away from the DS or and cannon was slow to innovate. In just last week, the Associated Press announced they were switching to Sony for all their photography and video work. That's Today's top story on the TV S. photography podcast. Change has been in the air for quite some time and I. Just you know you think back on things you know little stories that you read here things that you hear there and pretty soon they start to add up to something. Big and something big has definitely happened with the Associated Press deciding to switch from cannon which they were using primarily of for their work to Sony for everything for photography and video the whole Enchilada. Now those little things I was talking about four example. I remember reading a story a few months ago. About it was a hearing the government hearing and DSL. Ours were deemed too noisy to shoot during the proceedings, so the DSL are photographers were asked to do not shoot except at specific times, so they were basically controlled when they could take a picture. On the other hand, the murless shooter. Room time and it was a Sony shooter ironically. was able to shoot at will, because he was able to set his camera so that it made no noise whatsoever and I. Remember Thinking about that story at the time, I'm going. Wow, look out for this right. If you're in the world of journalism, look out for this and sure enough Not that long after we get this big announcement now many of us. US Are Mere Lewis shooters. We can imagine the benefits of these cameras over DSL. Lars during the daily grind of reporting I mean don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. murless cameras are lighter. They're more agile and they are definitely quieter as I just talked about so if you had to carry a bank all day every day, would you choose? Realistically, what would you choose? At the same time while you know, we're sort of figuring out that we value our backs in our shelters and our necks, Sony continued to add necessary pieces to complete the professional photographer puzzle. They launched their professional service which by the way associated. Press has expressed great confidence in Sony's ability to deliver professional services onsite during major events, so they launched that and they got it going in. They did it well enough to get the. The confidence of the Associated Press they put long white aperture telephoto lenses in the roadmap, and they carefully integrated stills and video into the same camera system, and this becomes really one of the important aspects of a peace decision to make the switch and I have some quotes for you coming up here in just a minute about a week ago, they officially announced a AP did that. They're switching to the Sony Alpha system. The quote with hundreds of staff photographers and videographers around the world and thousands of freelancers who contribute the is a massive entrusted source that covers both the expectant and unexpected, and they're going to do that with Sony cameras so when I have here I, did some research about the discussion you know basically most of the quotes are from a director of photography, also the deputy managing editor, so David is the director of Photography and Darryl is the deputy managing editor and from two different places. We're going to start out with some comments that were captured by the director of photography. On an article in DP. Review DP review, and I have the link to that article in the show notes. The articles titled were confident that they can deliver. We talk with a piece director of photography about the switch to Sony the link is in the show notes there. Here's a few of the. Comment on them and again. This is the director of photography. We like the idea of having the color quality in the image quality, being close to the same between stills and video equipment, so if a still soccer for help out a video colleague with a little filming or B roll. It would fit in the at it in. If we were to pull a grab frame from a four K. video camera, it would have the same basic feel as a photograph from stills camera.
Rep. Matt Gaetz files criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
"Facebook, and I'll have to admit I have a dog in the fight. In this case, we have a Facebook page. It's a number of years old. It's got quite a number of followers to it. Not as many as the big Hollywood celebrities, but Listen, I'm glad for every single one and we didn't buy one of them some people by their followers. I don't If people want to follow my Facebook page, that's fine. I think we put up good content there. But I do have a beef because Facebook has on occasion either Shut us down and not for anything that was untoward. Many times. They just say we don't know why it shut down. Your site just doesn't work. But there's a reason that conservatives do not trust Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg, I think broke the law when he told Congress that his company is politically neutral. Gateway Pundit Reports of Congress and Matt Gates today filed a criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. And why what crime did he commit? You lied to Congress under oath that is a federal crime gate cited Project Veritas undercover investigation that found two brave whistleblowers. And he sent a letter off to the US Attorney General Bill Bar, his press really said during a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce Committee. Mr Zuckerberg repeated that's the head of Facebook, Of course, Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied that his company engaged in bias. Against conservative speech, persons policies or politics. He also denied Facebook censored and suppressed content that was supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives. In June of 2020 project Veritas published the results of an undercover investigation featuring two whistleblowers who worked his Facebook. Content moderators revealing that the overwhelming majority of content filtered by Facebook's A I artificial intelligence program was content in support of President Donald Trump. So in other words, they were filtering out pro trump content. They also filtered out content related to Republican candidates for office or conservatism in general oversight is an essential part of Congress's constitutional authority. I think that Mark Zuckerberg knows exactly what they're talking about. And if it is the CEO of Facebook, he doesn't know all he needs to do is call in the people in charge of content, moderation and say, Is there a pattern to what we are excluding? And is there a pattern to what we're including if he didn't do that before he went to talk to Congress? Then he did it deliberately. You know, if you know that you're going to talk to Congress and you say, what are they going to ask me about? Well, they're going to ask me about conservative content filtering. Great. I'm going to call in the heads of those various departments and I'm gonna ask him straight out. Are you filtering Mohr Conservative content. If you are, I need to know And if we are, then we need to either justified or Corrected one of the other if he kept himself deliberately ignorant of the facts of things going on inside his own company. That's not an excuse to lie to Congress. And maybe maybe this criminal referral will actually get his attention. By the way, I got this e
Christopher Columbus statues temporarily removed in Chicago
"What's going on right now. In the last couple of hours in Chicago, you've seen the mayor of that city, Lori Lightfoot. Is she concerned about the dozens of people who get shot every weekend in the city? She is removing all the Christopher Columbus statues because she's concerned, she says about public safety. She's removing metal statues instead of removing the criminals who are killing people in her city every weekend. I, You know if she should just resign? I quite frankly, I'm embarrassed, Uh, at her actions. I mean, really their people should she tagged us to public safety Rhonda? She I'm not the one making the connection, she says, seeking to protect public safety. More. Mayor Lori Lightfoot removes Christopher Columbus statues from Chicago Parks until further notice, and then in the same voice. Says. We do not welcome federal law enforcement to come into our city and help us with our crime problem. You think she'd be begging for help? Well as a lawyer. You know what I like to be the next person who gets killed in Chicago to file a file a lawsuit against the city of Chicago and particularly name that that there has to be her wiggle out of her immunity because I've been successful and doing counties and them trying to use their immunity and county Supervisor's try to use their beauty and actually surviving 12 6 motions for that. No, she's publicly said it. She doesn't want federal help. She wants federal police there. So anybody who's harmed in her city. Rhonda. I'm not an attorney. I've just been on the fringes because I'm a reporter. So I've dealt with a lot of attorneys. But I think your idea is great. Even if you didn't win the suit, you get discovery. Imagine a civil lawsuit brought against a big city mayor, whether it's Seattle or Chicago or Portland or l A or whatever and say, OK, I want to see all the internal memoranda. When the police chief tells you mayor this weekend, we're going to Seymour. Dozens of people shot and the mayor's response his well. I'm going to tell the feds they should stay out of the city that's like a company being notified. We've gotta hazard here and the head of the company says Leave it there. If people get hurt too bad, and I think the discovery you know when you demand documents from them would be absolutely amazing. Absolutely. You sound like an attorney, because, yeah, that's what you have the fourth stability issue, and and that put them on notice which takes care of the foreseeability issue. Um, and they should be held accountable and discovery is always your friends and a lot of people who have things to hide. Don't like discovery. But you know to me. It sounds like a conspiracy. I mean, I think you could build, actually. Ah. Conspiracy case that the government is actually intentionally doing things to for a political agenda. That's not idiot. The agenda in the best interest of the people on DH there enduring it conspiracies with other other government enter entities and other

Hollywood's Black List
"Every year, fifty thousand movie scripts Tele plays other pieces of writer Lee stuff get registered with the Writers Guild of America fifty thousand most of which sucks, but a handful of which will become the movies that change our lives today on the show how a math! Loving movie nerd used a spreadsheet and an anonymous hotmail address to solve one of Hollywood's most fundamental problems, picking winners from a sea of garbage, and he may just have reinvented the power structure of Hollywood along the way.

A. dot com slash NPR. We're only months away from election day and every week or even every few hours. There's a new twist that could affect who will win the White House to keep up with the latest tune into the NPR. Politics podcast every to find out what happened and what it means for the election. It's two thousand and five Franklin Leonard a junior executive at Leonardo. DiCaprio's production company which sounds glamorous, but arguably he is a glorified script reader. WHO's boss's boss? Is Leonardo DiCaprio. Franklin's job is to help that boss. Find The next great movie for Leo, which means he is constantly reading movie scripts. Every junior executive lives in constant fear of the trade story that breaks about some exciting new script that they didn't know about that. Their bosses like. Like why didn't you know about this? Franklin is supposed to know about everything which is tough because there's this famous old saying in Hollywood. Nobody knows anything as in. It's really hard to know what movies are going to work. So if you do find something any piece of information that can help you gauge. What might work that information? Franklin is learning. That is Hollywood gold one of the things that drilled into your head. Is that information? Information is the most valuable thing. Yeah, and that information is to be protected and kept in house and exploitation of that information is how we in power and leverage like what little information you can manage, and then if it's kind of good, put up a wall as quickly as possible. That's exactly right. Movie scripts are a kind of information like the fundamental piece of information for a movie, and so Franklin's job is go out into the world. World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive. Thinking this is good, but is this good? I'm not important enough to risk bringing this to my boss. The blacklist was a way of saying you were right. It was good and here is a number. Instead of just your instincts fourteen votes, only living boy in New, York, by Allan, Loeb Charlie Wilson's war by earned Sorkin, Fan Burke and by the way a big deal in two thousand five. This wasn't just about finding undiscovered writers. It was any script that was great and not made. In a script called peacock by riders named Michael Lender and Ryan Roy the top ten of the very first blacklist thubten of the very first blacklist. Point the blacklist was just a spreadsheet that only Franklin could see, and he's about to send it back to all those other junior executives who contributed and he looks at it for a moment all of this normally off the record insider Hollywood Intel now written in a single place. He takes a deep breath. And he hit send. And then he packs up and heads off for vacation in Mexico and about a weekend vacation I went to the hotel of business center to check my email on like the public computer. And this lists have been forwarded back to me several dozen times. and everyone's like Oh my word of this team. Come from a lot of descriptions of sister. Good. Where where did this come from? What's your? What's your thought? It was terrifying. My thought is is that my career in Hollywood has a clock on it and the doomsday clock has just sped up. This anonymous list of the best unmade screenplays was blowing up. It had gone way beyond the small circle. It was initially sent to it even ended up covered the industry press, and so Franklin kept his down. He stayed anonymous and one day. He gets this call from an agent. Saying that his client has written this amazing script. It's perfect for Leo. It's like the usual call, except then the agent says hey. Don't tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that this ripped is going to be the number one script on next year's blacklist. I immediately thought to myself. That's interesting because I made the blacklist and I'm not making another one because I. DON'T WANNA get run out of town on rails. But I'm fascinated that you think that the speculative notion of your client scripting on the list is a sales tool for you. That must mean that this list that I created has
International students may need to leave US if their universities transition to online-only learning
"And it's universities, especially the public universities have, I think kind of a strange relationship of the rest of the world are universities air sought out by international students from around the world who want to come here to the United States? And they want to study? We understand that we understand those universities love those international students to because they tend to pay the greatest amount of tuition. This is even if they're a taxpayer funded taxpayer owned. University. But now that many of those universities are in a position where they're having to do online education of the students, is there any good reason for the student? I have to live in the United States and be granted a visa to do that? Dan Griswald joins me now who's the Mercatus Center's director of trade and immigration, Dan? Welcome back to the program. So the president has issued. Sorry about that. Go ahead. I'm glad to be with you was. I'm glad to have you with me. So this directive from the Trump administration that would take away international college student visas. If they're coursework is entirely online. Anything unreasonable about that? I think it is unreasonable and it's unnecessary one. It's very short notice. You know, just a few weeks before the fall semester starts. If they are going online for all classes, maybe not necessarily do that all semester. There are still reasons to want to stay on campus. You can meet with other students. You Khun do extracurricular things. They have labs and things like that. So It's just totally on unnecessary large and it's going to hurt the U. S economy In the short run. As you mentioned, it's going to deprive us of billions of dollars of tuition payments, potentially It's going to hurt us in the larger run by discouraging these students from coming here, and many of them go on to feel important jobs here found important companies and boost our economy. Okay, I'm a little bit of two minds about this. So, Dan, I'll admit to being a bit ambivalent about this because on one hand, I hear, but these students come here and many times they stay here, inform companies here and they start businesses and they employ people. Those are all good things. I'd like to see American citizen students do that. And there are times when I look at Universities, even in my own neck of the woods, and I think they're pursuing the international students more than they're pursuing the students in the in their own state. In other words, the state that owns the operation owns the The University provides taxpayer funding for it so that it benefits foreign students and if they end up going home, and I'm thinking, in particular about China or China says sends its students here. They learn a lot of things, and then they go home. Or they perhaps worked for a a big tech company here and then take all that that that knowledge and information and capability back to their home country and they compete against the United States. Well, I think that can happen. But there's no trade off us. Students and foreign students can prosper together. And in fact, US students are better off if we have foreign students here and then work beside them and start those companies and create those patents, But you know most of the, but let's look at doctoral students in the stem subjects, right science technology engineering. Mathematics, 72% of them. The doctoral students will stay here for 10 years or more. That percentage is even higher among Indian and Chinese students, so some of the Chinese students to go back Most of them stay here and you mentioned cos you know, cos like zoom Tesla's space six Instagram. Those were all founded by foreigners who came here as student and stayed here and found that those companies Which were a great benefit to consumers, and also have created a lot of wealth and jobs for Americans. We're going to have less of that activity because of this action by the administration. If those universities were forced had on ly or primarily depend on domestic students, students who are you know the sons and daughters of American citizens or American Green card holders. Would that necessarily mean that those companies would not be created by those students instead of instead of foreign students? Well, US entrepreneurs do found those companies. But no, I think we have fewer of those companies founded. You know, we favor native born students right? They get the in state tuition. They have plenty of opportunities to go to college. No American student is being crowded out by, for instance, In fact, the fact that the foreign students pay full freight. On their tuition means that the colleges can offer lower tuition native born American students and helping them get an education and have better paying jobs for their careers. Okay, because I don't want to sound jingoistic. But I'm also aware I've seen universities and say, We've had to put a cap on this before China virus, But we've had to put a cap on the number of students and I say, Well, hold on. You're still taking lots of international students. And they say, Well, that's because we're getting 30 or $40,000 a year from them. We're only getting 10,000 year from the students in ST And again, they seem to be more interested in those $30,000 payments than they do, making more room for American students. I think that could be true at some schools. Most universities are seeing declining in moments, or at least they're having to hunt harder and harder for this. There's plenty of opportunities for Americans. American students and the foreign students actually create more opportunities because they helped keep the tuition down so it could be more affordable for American students.
Unexpected Results on Lithium and the Kidneys
"Sometimes? It's the uncontrolled Frau's that changed practice particularly when the results go against the grain. That's what happened in twenty seventeen when Lars casting than colleagues published their seminal paper on lithium in renal disease, they looked at seven hundred and fifty four patients with chronic kidney disease, who are taking lithium or an anti convulsant. Some were continued on the medication during the renal disease while others stopped it. Now you'd expect the renal function to improve here when lithium was stopped, but they found the opposite patients who stopped the mood stabiliser whether lithium or the Anti convulsant had worse renal outcomes than those who continued it, but wait. You do kind of expect that I mean it's likely that the doctors stopped these meds in patients who are getting sicker and they just continued to get sicker since this is not a controlled trial. They did try to control for that selection bias and they're finding still held up. But. There was one more finding that starts to raise questions. Dr cussing honed in on the patients with bipolar disorder. He found that their renal function fared even better when continued on lithium versus switching them to an anti convulsant. That was an unusual finding. Suggesting that renal function is actually going to do better bipolar disorder if we keep them on lithium instead of switching them to something else. How do you explain that we don't really know? But perhaps it's all about the TUBUL 's at least one anti convulsant vow pro Depakote is associated with renal damage in the PROXIMAL tubular bells. Now that is a rare side, effect, Daviau but bear with me, and you'll see the point, so vow pro eight is hitting the proximal to Buell's lithium in contrast, causes damage in the distant Tubul 's so switching develop row aid could just damage the healthier half of the kidneys. These folks so if that theory is true, then keeping them on, lithium would sound like a better idea. Now while Dr Kessler's study gave us some reassurance for continuing lithium. Even as the Croat Nin starts to rise, it did start a lot of confusion, and it definitely needed replication, and that's what we got in a poster presentation by Dr. Me Hawk power on colleagues at the Mayo Clinic. The data was once again observational, and they arrived at the same conclusion, the risk of progressing to end stage renal disease was the same in patients with chronic kidney disease who continued versus stopped lithium. Sadly that risk was high, the risk of going on to end stage renal disease was about fifty percent in both groups. Remember though these are patients who already have chronic kidney disease. And stage. Renal disease is a very sad disease. The risk of suicide is seven times higher in this population and its highest in the first year of dialysis, so we need to take that into consideration when thinking about stopping lithium lithium prevents about one in eight suicides in bipolar disorder, and the risk of suicide goes up twenty fold in the first few months after lithium is, stop forty fold if lithium has stopped abruptly, that's why it's best to stop lithium slowly over one to two months to prevent drastic worsening of mood. Lithium's effects on the kidneys are also dose dependent with some studies showing no renal effects if the level is kept below zero point eight. The bottom line you see the creatine new rising at one point five or above you're gonNA need to consultant a frolic just on this complex question, but the answer is not always to stop lithium, and from these two studies, it looks like patients are GonNa fare just as well whether the lithium is stopped continued, and they might even fare better if it is continued. We also need to keep in mind that patient's entire history, and how well they did on off lithium, and how high the risk of suicide is. The first step is usually to lower lithium as low as you can get it in someone with renal disease without getting their mood worse.
New Movies Coming To Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu And HBO This Weekend
"If you have Amazon prime video there's a movie called mice bite which was just hitting theaters when covert nineteen hit this is an action comedy Dave Batista who's you know guardians of the galaxy you know that big giant former wrestler guy he's a CIA agent row he finds himself teamed up with the precocious nine year old so in other words should be making kindergarten cop now I have to tell you about this to think that this is actually this is a rite of passage for action star Jackie Chan had a movie like this the rock had a movie like this John Cena is had a movie like this at some point you gotta so you're lovable side and be charged with guarding little kids and then you learn about the soft side yourself this one is particularly horrible and one of the things we hate about this movie Rakan my spot is set primarily in Chicago they shot it in Toronto eight that and the worst moments in this movie is there's a chase that begins in wicker park okay the bad guy gets behind the wheel of a car with her party he's trying to get away from Dave Batista CIA agent now the C. I. A. tech person is in David she says here telling them where you know traveling this guy and the agents as one minute after this car leaves wicker park the agent says looks like he's heading to the Naperville area because Naperville has a giant airfield so wrong later five minutes later we're in phony Naperville where I kid you not there's a big you know action sequence where the plane on the runway is now dangling over what appears to be the Grand Canyon who knew that in Naperville there was an airport overlooking a giant canyon clearly green screen so I mean it's just been really poorly done it's too violent for the little kids and it's too stupid for the adults and a lot of parents thing all this might be fun have a fun action movie stay away from my spy that's too bad you're you're totally right about that right of passage because Arnold Schwarzenegger had to do that too right I mean it was like a garden shop yeah I mean everybody has to make sure that the kids have something to go watch in that in those movies were actually pretty good for kids you're saying this one's not this was terrible okay now I've got I've got the funniest movie of the summer Fauria probably so far it has the worst title of all time it's called Eurovision Song Contest the story of fire saga well the Eurovision Song Contest is an actual deal in Europe and has been since the rent if these in fact Salim young was discovered on that aba was first on the Eurovision Song Contest this is a parity with will Ferrell the king of the parity right and Rachel McAdams they play a couple of Icelandic singer songwriters he's Lars Eriksen she's cigarette original daughter and their Icelandic and they're dreaming of representing their home whether they do kind of like Viking game of thrones stamp rock songs so this is filled with all these big production numbers because then we meet the contestants from Greece and the grand the Russian the Russian contest is actually played by our friend Dan Stevens was Matthew Crawley on Downton abbey he plays a Russian oligarch who's also a ballad singer it's really really stupid and it's really really funny it's mostly excuse these big giant set pieces where they do these huge production numbers remember will Ferrell did a movie called blades of glory your hair well he does for you know that did for ice dancing with the stars for song competition so even though we don't know the Eurovision Song Contest here in the states we know about all the competition shows that this is basically get one singer from each country you know what it's all European countries they have a couple of other than the states they're not we're not eligible for the Eurovision Song Contest was there an SNL bit with will Ferrell that was similarly themed I I just don't know that there could have been it's it's clearly the kind of stuff that he just excels at when you see him in the big Viking outfit and looks like the blue eye shadow it's singing about Viking you know might biking protector this is the song from this will enrich McAdams by the was wonderful as well she can also be very funny the video and the song they do is so terrible that it's great because it looks just like when you see those kind of you know that's a big deal that kind of like that Viking will rock nonsense yeah there's my aunts were everybody everybody pretends like the rolling the slave ship which is really just unfortunate or the big Viking ship as it will be we kind of you know horrible music but really right prepared well it there's that old joke about Led Zeppelin thank you know I have the have the crap was about Vikings right and if the agency had no idea what they were saying about this the music was so great musicianship as of right but if you look back you're like what the hell of the talk was only in the middle of the song yeah they had they did they had references to the lord of the rings when it was just a yeah they were so ready this is really true okay and

"And on the website at Lars Larsen dot com if you want to send me emails talk at Lars Larsen dot com works very well now I always promise you that I'll admit if I have a dog in the fight I've been a gun enthusiast since I was a little kid back when my dad gave me my first guns course these days you can't give kids guns anymore because of the laws but we all know that their fathers and grandfathers and grandmothers and mothers out there who've given a a pistol or a rifle to a son or daughter before the legal age but of course the gun officially belongs to mom dad I do own some cold rifles and I own some cold coastal so I definitely have a dog in the fight and Jim rows and Berger joins me now whose latest book is revolver Sam cold and the six shooter that changed America Mr Osborne welcome to the program great to be here lies thanks ravenous I knew a bit of the history of the cold and the cold revolver especially the you know the original colt revolver I'd love to have the kind of money to own one of the originals that are still out there from the original manufacturing but you wrote this book because this change more than just firearms in the United States it the changes that it wrought in American manufacturing went far beyond that didn't they did I mean the the call revolver changed American to really fundamental ways one was how he impact it had on opening the west which we can talk about the other which referred to is the incredible impact in manufacturing of it had on industrialization Cole was one of the pioneers in uniform interchangeable parts I mean that's something we all take for granted now which is if something breaks in the refrigerator you just remove that piece and put in an identical piece and it looks as good as new you know same thing with your car that wasn't true back in the early nineteenth century everything was singular unique and this is a big problem with guns because if you have to send the whole must get back to get the of the whole thing thanks to something grow so interchangeable parts for a big movement in the arms industry and particularly when it came to Sam call he made some enormously sad and there's an changed not only industrialization in this country but all around the world well since we started with the manufacturing end of it tell me this what background did he have that brought him to this point where he would create this iconic gun and create the idea of interchangeable parts where you could make a thousand of apart and make a thousand guns and you knew that you could you could easily replace those parts what was his background okay what I think about Cole himself that you know is he clearly had a great mechanical gifted ingenuity drive and all these things but I think the simplest explanation one of them is that he grew up in Hartford Connecticut and the you probably know that area up and down the Connecticut River there the Connecticut River valley known as gun valley your gun alley this Springfield armory was in Springfield Massachusetts your heart for New York Middletown Connecticut so he grew up that's where most of the guns in the country were made and going back to the Springfield armory even before Cole came along they were trying to develop interchangeable parts and the U. S. government ordnance department was driving this effort they didn't get too far but so he you know he knew about it and then he goes off at the age of sixteen and Invensys gun and he immediately realizes that can make it to make something of it he needs to machine manufacturing and he starts getting interested in interchangeable parts at a very young age you know touring around New England the Connecticut River valley trying to learn the best cutting H. catch tech leaks you know circa nineteen thirty six eighteen thirty six I'm talking to Jim rows and Berger who's the author of revolver same cold on the six shooter that changed America I guess from today's perspective might be tough for people to imagine why it was hard to to get to interchangeable parts because you'd almost think if I if I make a part a certain way exactly the same today I can knock out thousands in in today's world even millions of something at a very low cost but and in fact it's almost you you'll pay more money if you said I want something handmade you know like I wanted it all right it's crafted by guns Smith and I want him to make it from the word go it may fit a particular cartridge but I want this gun made by hand you're going to pay through the nose for something like that except the back then they found it hard to make parts were they were close enough together in tolerance that that they might be interchangeable what what was the difficulty yeah I mean you could hand naked gun using gauges so that you can get the tolerance is pretty close but he did it a lot better than humans did and also they get a lot more cheaply so the prices of guns could go down that's why you know you say if you get something handcrafted it costs more money it takes a lot more time you know when it went cold first had his guns made by a guy named John Pearson by hand it took two weeks to make them he was making hundreds a day in his armoury you know a few decades later actually seems could do it was called the American system because it developed in America developed in the armories the United States and that and it was really Sam Cole who introduced it to the rest of the world starting with England where he went in the eighteen fifties and said Hey you know this hand making guns I have his ridiculous try machinery it makes things a lot better you know you get to college is closer and you can make them more cheaply well and in fact Mister oz a burger this is in the early eighteen hundreds and we always credit you know but Henry Ford with division of labor in some of those ideas but there must been some of that in make because if the previous system was one man who works on one gun until he's done and then hands it off to be sold to the customer and then starts on the next one under machine manufacture these parts would you have one guy who's making the revolver and somebody else is crafting the barrel and somebody else is crafting the trigger assembly and all that absolutely Henry Ford thought he invented the assembly line but that's probably because you never read any history the assembly line goes way back in fact work begins is he lives with me now we all know you live when you can score on Jan enter the cotton gin thank you why would you spend most of his life trying to make guns for the government and he was the one who first said I'm going to may first make machines to make the guns would need never really got to conduct those machines he but he had the idea to do it and then others followed along again in Simeon north in Connecticut probably was the first to really use assembly line techniques by the time it got to cold you had very good machines used in an assembly like mine like way so they could produce guns very fast I mean this is one reason why you know when it came to the civil war the north perfectly the cold armory could churn out guns really fast they had the machines to do it and they had the techniques to to distribute the parts and then bring them together at the end of the assembly line mistrust burger before we leave that all together that will have time to talk about Samuel cold who's a very colorful figure but when we talk about machines today their CNC machines their computer controlled and all that when we talk about machines in the early eighteen hundreds around eighteen thirty six when the cold was first a patented what kind of machines are we talking about just drill presses and maybe primitive blades yeah exactly it's snowing in Laveen and so used to a lot of hands on operation but what you can do you know using a a template you can recreate exactly the same form again and again and again and again and get it exactly right so that's really the the huge step forward in manufacturing sell it you know it it it was a lot more difficult than it is now a lot of improvements obviously but it all began hi in the eighteen twenties eighteen thirties in the armories the book is called revolver Sam cold and.

Tried to make it look club in what takes place. They solders xbox Diet. Tv's and stuff like that so joan. There ain't drugs or some folks down there to grow it from. The police ever attended there for these couple years. We had one get out of control. We had to call the police to GET PEOPLE. People usually usually. It's twenty anyways that night. It was more or something was something posted on. Facebook just one. That's the new airplane hangar in Waterloo. Well sometimes a source of tension between father and son slash president and vice president of Malardier was generally a pretty sweet deal for Delon until any contracts were finalized. It was essentially a place for Dell in the store. His hot rods jeeps and jet skis. It also gave access to mechanics and engineers who would gladly tinker away at whatever projects Dylan through their way. All you had to do was keep the place clean and organized. But he couldn't care less about that. More toys were stored at the sprawling. Millar to state. Police I arrived the night of Wayne. Millar it's death. They noticed none of the fifteen vehicles parked on the property were missing. Most of the mansion gave the impression of a messy. Frat House adorned with airplane memorabilia. Save for Wayne's master bedroom sadly smelling of multiple cats and unchanged litter boxes but in the interrogation room when the conversation turns toward Wayne's physical and mental well-being being in the months leading up to his death delon casually hints at what life had been like since he moved back in with his father over a year ago. Yet depression him. He carried some pretty sadness within throughout life. I never really never really wanted to share it with me. The death of Wayne Millar is eventually ruled a suicide albeit a strange one as the coroner suggests he's never seen someone kill themselves with a shot through the eye as the interview with Dell includes. It's clear they've taken. Everything is told them as absolute truth but for grieving son gives the impression of a tired traveller being mildly inconvenienced by the TSA. Of course looking back on it now knowing the full story at all makes sense because Dell and Millar is a master manipulator the new CEO of Millar who will quickly closed the book on his family's legacy and throw it into the fireplace one year later it's February twenty eleven and twenty six year.

Both of them have slept with Dylan at one time or another and Lars Birthday Christina decides to text her something along the lines of happy birthday. It was a year ago that I I slept with Delon to which Laura replies. That's fine I slept with him a couple of weeks ago to which an upset Cristina remind. You is the one who started.

"Lars Larsen sure to be with you on a conspiracy Thursday night and what better night to be talking to the acting deputy secretary of homeland security Ken Cuccinelli I hope we keep your cell phone connection but miss sector it let me ask you about one oddball case and this was the case of this comedian who I guess was on the western dam which finally found a port they could tie up in income to Cambodia and they had taken hundreds of people off the ship and put him in a in a hotel and they said we're gonna test you were gonna quarantine yet and that's that and the guy because literally he said he had a gig in the United States he sneaked away from the hotel bought himself an EMR its air ticket an upgraded one so that he would die guess Ralph suspicion because he said he'd heard about people getting turned away from the bargain basement air carriers from Asia and he flew back it was a three hop flight and there's no indication that he told the airline or anyone else by the way I've been exposed now he doesn't have it as far as we know he hasn't tested positive but he was exposing who's being quarantine for region a reason are we you know what are we going to do with people who decide to take that kind of action and sneak around the quarantines because their life is being interrupted by this and they say I'm not sick I'm just gonna hop on a plane with a bunch of unsuspecting fellow passengers and come back to the United States and when he got to Seattle he said he walked up to customs and customs looked at him and said Mister king and he said yep and they said were you on the western dam and he said yep and he told he told customs those and they said well were you ever in mainland China no do you did did you test positive for corona no and they said okay you're free to go and they let him into the country so I appreciate the quarantining appreciate the screening but it sounds like some of the rules and some of the procedures are allowing people like him who sneaked away from quarantine to just sneak back into the United States and I worry about the disease getting in that way coronavirus well there when we take our containment measures we know that we can't completely contain the virus and nor can we completely keep out what we're doing with our containment efforts is to try to buy time to shrink the number of cases in the country and to be better prepared as we go along when he showed up at Seattle he was probably not only got cornered by customs border protection but there was a secondary medical screening going on there as well and so if he was able to walk away was because he was not symptomatic he wasn't showing symptoms of the virus right it and but there is to your point nothing in his passport you don't get a passport stamp with a cruise ship name on it so if you didn't if you didn't go to China and by the way the state department issued a travel advisory today to people warning them about cruise ships in the Asia area end any cruise ships in the world because people can fly from China to fill in the blank.

I work for mandir construction I swing a hammer for live and I. once you either the time I get it but Drake tell me this do you ever have a young guy or gal on the work site whose job is clean up you know when you're in their swing a hammer doing framing work but that you hire a young guy are young gal you say you want to learn to be a carpenter your first job is clean up you clean up the work site you know to keep it you know safe and also to make it look good for the client and that young man or woman says I'm gonna learn this trade but I'm gonna start from the bottom up I think we have to do the same thing if we want politicians we if we want and we really don't want politicians we want people who actually accomplish something in their life and then they decided some point I want to be a member of Congress I want to be at the state legislature I want to be a governor I might run for president some day you have to start by developing a whole good a core of of young men and women who go out and they accomplish something going started business go out and work at a trade or profession and accomplish something and then run for office what America's been gravitating toward we used to have people in public office Herbert Hoover was president he won out he was a mining engineer he worked all over the world he did make a lot of money eventually because he came up with some new ways of of of extracting valuable stuff for mill from mine tailings and and he had some patents and he'd actually done something when he then ran for president today most of the people that might be a candidate for office Kamal Harris has been in politics basically her whole life she had a you know a a romance with a married man Willie brown in California jumpstart her career but almost everybody else bento a roar Peter to judge all these jokers haven't done anything in the private sector and and then they go all right and no so if you said we would prefer to have a president who's actually done something if we used. it asking as voters when you go to a town hall for somebody running for Congress and you say what have you done with your life before now and they say well I've been a lawyer but I've been involved in politics since I was eighteen years old that's probably not the person you want if if they say instead well I went out I I I I left school I started a business I employed people I signed the front of a paycheck Barack Obama had never done that still hasn't done that night ology Hillary Clinton had never actually me she was a lawyer but you learn how to cheat the commodities market early on and she was basically the governor's wife in Arkansas on the attorney general's wife so I want people who've actually gone out and done something and accomplish something doesn't have to be like trump doesn't have be hotels and casinos and all that and I also want somebody who's had failure a lot of the media hated trump because and they want and they will be out there this large go ahead should I go to the border of Paul and I agree that use lame or lamer yeah that makes sense what Uncle Sam yes yes and you know I mean I I don't get the choice because the Democrats and the Republicans double the money like a look at Ross Perot yet no can't even have money because he didn't use Democrat or Republican he had no chance well but he he made a difference unfortunately if it got Bill Clinton but at least you had people and it would be nice to get people of substance to accomplish something in their life and then you don't George Washington wanted to be a farmer you know he was involved in the government he fought for his country he served as president but he really wanted to be back at his regular day job I would like you didn't even want to be the president no he he and he certainly did want to be king. no. but but if you said when you've gone out and actually done something with your life and then you run for the legislature new satellite to go serve but you won't even need term limits if you have people who look forward to leaving the public service because they don't view it as a career we need fewer career politicians and and unfortunately they are few and far between right now and usually by the time somebody has accomplished a lot in their life they built a business up at all they say I don't want to you know leave what I'm doing here and maybe have it fall apart while I'm gone so I can run for Congress to run for governor but I think in a lot of ways Drake those are exactly the people that we need to have as governors as mayors and the bit about failure that I think is important is if you've gone out and started a business and it succeeded and then you start another one and it failed you for you learn from failure you think about some of the biggest success stories teve job the late Steve Jobs well I didn't like his politics was a huge success but he also had huge failures he failed with a computer company called next he failed with a number of things but he also succeeded I gotta tell you something every time you fail you'll learn something and then then what you take what you learn and you go off and you figure out what you're going to do next I would like to have more of those people in office I think there's a way to make that happen and I don't think we have to be saddled with just people who are professional politicians Drake it's a pleasure thanks for the call if you've been thinking about buying a DNA kit now is the perfect time because twenty three in me that's the best DNA kit on the market and I know I've used them it just got better.

"Lars Larsen show welcome back to the Lars Larsen show last night I was at dinner celebrating a friend's birthday and I had to admit when I was a kid I was a nerd and I have to admit that today as an adult I'm still a nerd I love technology and I especially love the stories that go into technology I remember when I was a little kid I was about nine years old and I stayed home from playing in the summertime with my buddies to watch men walk on the moon for the very first time in nineteen sixty nine while we're in that summer of celebration marking the landing of Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin Collins had to stay up in the in the command module in orbit Bozo he drew the short straw but they did something when they landed on the moon that is still paying benefits today including perhaps all of G. P. S. technology doctor Todd Jagr joins me now who's global commercial director of objects for her radius and a former laser range finding research scientist for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center doctor Yeager it's good to have you on the program well thank you Lars I'm also a self professed nerd so I could do about the air we nerds have to hang together but I didn't know this little piece of history that they actually put a reflector on the moon so that it could be shot from a laser on earth am I right about that and and that the they measure the time interval it took for the laser to travel it's hundred eighty six thousand miles per second speed allied I'm sure the atmosphere make some difference but by being able to do this they determined things that eventually led to GPS that's correct so you can think of the experiments similar to sonar technology where you just send a signal out bounces off something comes back and helps you determine the distance away from that now the laser ranging had occurred before the reflector went up there but as the moon is not a perfectly smooth spherical object when the light would hit inside of a crevice or a crater versus having on top of a mountain you get a different time signals it came back to earth so this laser Rexburg factor reflector was put on there and has a a flat object so that you always had the same sort of reflection coming off and how this helps out with GPS is it helped us to understand better how gravity between the earth and the moon work where we couldn't verify are you sorry area of relativity now how does that affect you yeah and and why is that important what was very relativity told us that hello I'm where you are in space where space and time this fabric has been curves by gravity of large mass of objects think about like a bowling ball but on a trampoline and how that would dragnet trampling down but permanent ending on where you're at how fast you're travelling around you're going to experience time differently and make the already long story that I'm telling a bit shorter and ends up that if you're on earth persist in one of these satellite that's orbiting very fast at twelve thousand miles above the earth you've got a a time dilation of about thirty eight microseconds so thirty eight millions of a second doesn't sound like much but when you when you know that the satellites have to have an accuracy of billions of a second you can see how they could come out a track pretty quickly each other so the process is inside of the GPS satellites actually have an algorithm that correct for this time dilation caused by relativistic effects okay so so find Einstein came up with the three relatively and and and what if I may get way past my my depth on this but it means that if if you were if you were riding on one of these satellites into earth orbit you're actually experiencing time differently than if you're standing on on planet earth watching the satellite go by absolutely that's that's particles state wow I mean an end in by being able to figure out the differences that made it possible otherwise you do put up all these GPS satellites and they would have experience time differently even if they each had what independent the Tomic clocks on them which I think someone dude on day all right so they have these atomic clocks on I mean you can think of these things as as taking a long and you have these clocks on the earth that are doing the communication with it at the clock this on the satellite will actually be about thirty eight microseconds the clock that's on the earth and this relates to GPS such as you know let's say that you had a gas station on there that's a half mile away well if you try to look at that same measurement one day later if they have mile away plus or minus five miles so you lose all of the accuracy and precision that the satellites are are known for no one went Horatius put it up there and and they made it out of high tech fused silica which sounds like a fancy scientific way of saying glass isn't that what high tech fusil Acadia's is glass or or glassy substance it is class but unlike your traditional glass melting we think of you know stand being melted with some other chemicals with that the fuselage is actually created from a a reaction where you burn a silicon containing gas and hydrogen oxygen quite you actually make your silicon dioxide which is the basis of glass the reason why it has done so well is space and as high radiation environment is because of just that it's one of the purest substances ever synthesized by man regular glass is going to have transition metals and other impurities in act where into Celica you're talking parts per billion or parts per trillion levels of these injuries because it does have the impurities it doesn't do what we call solar station which means that over time the class would turn yellow and then around and then eventually black it's already a tough enough experiment as it is we really don't wanna lose signal over time how big is this reflector physically it's about a foot square elements are getting individual elements are about thirty nine millimeters or so across our and and are there still experiments that scientists are doing whether shooting this this same reflector from fifty years ago today yes actually it says the only continuously functioning left from Apollo eleven NASA needed it to work for ten years so being the head of the global sales team at so it's nice when we can under comments and over deliver well no kidding and what is her radius do these days weren't you all sorts of trouble are when we actually are applying plants for the laser rex reflectors the new GPS block three satellites will which will improve the precision of our current GPS systems using laser communications between the satellite and the ground it's also used in these high energy laser directed energy weapons of the things that you see it in down rounds and hopefully if there ever is god forbid an ICBM you know large that these would be able to take that out in the first phase and the like wise we have a commercial optics it's and bio medical devices of course high quality cues so what is used as well in the telecommute you have telecommunications industry as a strong in the fiber optics so five G. for instance will always use a high purity cues silica fiber to send this data all around the planet and what you're telling me is or the newer generation of satellites will not only be checking with their own internal atomic clock comparing notes with the ground but comparing notes with each other in orbit at the same time alright you getting with each other as well as laser ranging from each other so measuring the distance in real time from one satellite to another and also from ground stations now doctor where were you when when men for stepped on the moon remember I was negative nine years maybe a former life I can just tell you I told my mom my mom was a nurse and and I said I'm gonna stay home today and she said why is that I said I want to watch this and I watch it on a little black and white TV but it was it was one of the thrills of my young life I loved science fiction I love the space program and and I still love it today and in fact is one of the few things I would vote to spend more federal money on rather than less doctor Yeager thanks so much for taking the time and thanks for the work you do it did both harassed and at NASA's Goddard flight center my pleasure large you take care is a pleasure to have you on as doctor Todd Yeager global commuter commercial director of optics for her radius that reflector is still sitting there on the moon where.

"Larson. Welcome back to LARs Larson show pleasure to be with you on a first amendment Friday night tonight live from the Reagan Presidential library down here to attend attended dinner tonight of the national right to work legal foundation. And I've been getting my share phone calls about unions. Just you all understand. I've had some bad experiences with unions throughout my life. I didn't ask for him. They were forced on me. I'd get a job at show up. They'd say you're going to be joining the union, and I'd say what if I don't want to what if I want to make a choice about whether or not I joined the union, and they say, no, you don't have that choice. You have to join or you will be fired. And that is the rule in twenty three states twenty-seven states have right to work where if you go to work in a union shop, and you say I'd like to join the union or I don't want to join the union twenty-seven states. The majority of American states represent actually reflect your right to make that choice and the case of. Made while I'm not thrilled. With unions. The case I've always made for the unions being forced to work for your membership. Is that if you're in a state where they say you have to join you don't have any choice that union does not have to work very hard for you at all on the other hand, if the union has to work for you to join because you're in a right to work state, and it's up to you to decide whether you want to or not then they're gonna come to you. And they're going to say, we're going to do all kinds of things for you. Look at all the wonderful things we do for you. In other words, they have to sell you on the idea the same way any other group, and I use the NRA because it's handy. But there are meme there are groups that I'm a member of. And if I find some day that I say, this really isn't doing much for me right now, I'm paying these guys a certain amount of money every year, they send me a lot of advertising, but it really doesn't do something for me. I quit my membership in that group if the group wants to keep me as a member. They have to convince me that what they're doing. For me is worth the dollars that I pay to them that's a healthy relationship. Most of us have those kind of relationships with all kinds of people.

"Lars Larson dog in the fight. Welcome back to LARs Larson show. It is a pleasure to be with you. And we're glad to take your phone calls and emails I am joined now by Dr Aziz Gaza Pora, I've probably murdered the pronunciation of that name, but we've never met. Dr welcome to the program. Thanks, lars. You've actually did perfect. Well, I'm I'm glad to at least take a good shot. At now. Tell me this. You are treating people that you say today are suffering from Trump. What is it? Trump traumatic stress syndrome Trump, well, Trump traumatic stress syndrome or disorder, and that's not an official diagnosis. It's not been agreed upon by the psychiatric association. This is something that me, and my colleagues are calling it because we've seen a great uptake in it and the people's anxieties are all about the current political climate. What is wrong with these people? It's an election. We have a new president. We all went through. This is conservatives when Obama got into office, and we didn't turn into melting snow flake. So what happened? You know, I think that people whenever there's uncertainty, you know, changes and things people get people get anxious that's just kinda human nature, and there's something about Donald Trump is a in one of the reasons people like him is he's a very outspoken figuring. It doesn't play by the normal political rules and guidelines, and that's why a lot of people voted for him and wanted him. And yet the people that see that level of not playing by the the standard rules and the standard games. They get a lot of uncertainty, and then they feel a lot more anxiety anxiety. I mean, but these are people who are to the point where we hear that their students on college campuses who couldn't take their final exams who needed a crying room who needed crayons, and and other entertainment two you don't like their children. I mean, I just I I guess I don't have a lot of sympathy for them because I think, you know, grow up, and and understand that there are going to be changes. I'm I'm sure that someday America will elect another presence. That I don't like instead of the one that I voted for this time who I do like. But I, but what do you tell them as a treatment guy to try to get them over this or or do you try to get them over it? Sure. Well, I tell him to stop whining grow. Does that work? Would be very short in that case. Yes, that's right. That'll be two hundred dollars. I'll see you next week. No. It's. What's your highlighting is a is a reasonable point? Like, I believe regardless of anyone's political perspective, I want people to be confident and Brazilian with the faces of any changes that are happening in the world the landscape. So my goal when I work with someone is for your district, political beliefs. It's to say look the way you're holding this right now, it's nonfunctional like year. It's there's too much fear too much anxiety. It's stopping you from taking your final exams or succeeding in your business or having a relationship that you want or being with your kids, and we want to approach that. So we can solve that anxiety issue. So that you can be empowered in your life. All right now, I know that you are held back by certain kinds of rules about disclosures about patients. So understand. I'm not asking you to violate any of those confidences. But can you sketch out for us? The worst case of Trump traumatic disorder. Sure. I would say, you know, the profile will be someone who has been politically active in on the on the liberal side of the spectrum and was very engaged in in the election process and has history of being engaged in politics. And it was extremely impacted by the the election and the choice for for Trump. And and it has a lot of fear around. What's gonna what's gonna unfold for them? And and the impact of that fear usually is chronic anxiety throughout the day in many ways, they're often very engaged with media with social media with news and just taking it in and and it keeps ranting up their anxiety. And what this does is this can affect their performance at work people that are taking sick days as a result definitely affecting relationships. And in a in a way when we're having an anxious state like that for a period of time, LARs, it can kind of slip into a more depressed sorta lethargic. And that's what I've seen too is people that are kinda just depressed and negative and and limited in their daily activities result. So how how is Hillary doing these days? Anyway. Well, I don't know. Oh, I thought you were just describing her she's taking long walks in the woods. And and and doing other things that that seem kind of aimless. I mean, our husbands obviously occupied with whatever bimbos with today. So it's a tough situation to have to confront do you ever end up having to prescribe medication for these people? So that's the thing. So I'm a I'm a psychologist not a psychiatrist I can't prescribe medication. And I mean, that's a huge issue in itself. Over sixty percent of the population is on is, you know, takes some sort of medication pharmaceutical and forty percent. About his mental health related. So it's it's a big issue. And my goal is for especially for anxieties and depressions things that are not, you know, from birth serious mental illnesses, we wanna we wanna help people be medication. So sometimes I'm helping patients and clients that aren't medication and one of my goals is to help them out the tools and resources to be able to get off of it. Do they have they so far have you had enough time to get some of them cured of Trump traumatic stress disorder. Yeah. Actually because some because it's here's the thing. I remember I said in the beginning, it's not an actual technical disorder shirt technical disorders called adjustment disorder and that's existed for one they've had that. The psychiatric manual, and that just means there's a significant change in your life or the world around you that has a strong effect on you and the beauty of adjustment disorder. Is it can actually be resolved more quickly than a longer standing issue? Now, some people are more entrenched, and they probably had anxieties and stuff about this even before Trump came along. But the ones that are really affected by this new change in the presidency. We've actually had people within as little as two to three months have a significant. Well, that's good to know. I I mean, I would love it. If people could look at this the way, I did Obama. I said, okay. I had people call me and say, listen, if he does something, right? Will you give them credit? And I said sure, and there were a few times in the last eight years, I'd say only a few where I said, well that was probably pretty good call and and good call on the part of the president. I'd love to see your patients get to that point as well, Dr Gaza Bora. Thank you very much. I appreciate the time. My pleasure, Dr Z's Gaza Poro who is treating people suffering from T t as the Trump traumatic stress disorder. And you're listening.

Listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet to hell with them fears LARs Larson, come back to the LARs Larson show. It's a pleasure to be with you on a Monday night glide, take your phone calls and your emails. I'll tell you. It is Ben an interesting news day new claims about Elizabeth Warren and her DNA heritage Paul Allen, the co founder of Microsoft with Bill Gates all those years ago has passed away from non Hodgkin's lymphoma. Get announced a few weeks ago that the disease had come back. We had no idea that it was that serious, but he has passed away at the age of sixty five man who did a lot of good things. And I didn't know the guy. Well, I'd met him on a couple of occasions because I used to work for a radio station that was owned by Paul Allen. The mean to movement says every woman can be a victim. But according to Hillary, if you're an adult that doesn't always count with every adult victim every day tax payers, see all the money taken out of their checks, and they think they're paying. A fortune. But who actually pays the most taxes? We'll talk about that as well. And a so-called US ally has just released a terrorist connected to nine eleven after a pretty short prison sentence is that something that our allies should do and take a moment to cast a vote in my Twitter poll at LARs, Larson dot com and at LARs Larson show on Twitter.
