Officials Urge Killing of Invasive Spotted Lanternfly

"If you live on the east coast of the us especially in new york or pennsylvania and see a visually striking spotted lantern fly. The state governments would like you to forget any humane ideas about carefully moving it from one spot to another and instead to immediately kill it the spotted lantern fly is an invasive pest that is not native to the us and apparently is threatening to over seventy of the plant species that feeds on feeds on meaning draining sap and leaving them weakened and vulnerable to disease among those species. Is the atlantis autism or tree of heaven which the new york times points out is best known as the tree from betty. Smith's nineteen forty-three novel. A tree grows in brooklyn but this pernicious beast who has delicate grey wings spotted in black with a bonus set of bright red wings also spotted with black underneath. I arrived in the us from asia seven years ago and entered new york city last year. During the pandemic environmentalists ecologists are encouraging people to kill the bugs site because they have no natural predators here and no organic pesticides that can take them out here. New york the department of agriculture is additionally asking people to submit the location where you found the lantern fly on their website in pennsylvania. If you're caught moving the insect from one location to another you could be fined. Abort from the destruction these little lantern flies could cause on native species. Governments are being so intense because they know that the lantern flies are quite striking. They're not the kind of bug most people would want to kill. Unlike some other invasive species like the asian longhorn beetle that caused a massive deforestation throughout new york in the late nineties. According to the new york times

Taliban Vow to Respect Women, Despite History of Oppression

"The taliban vowed on tuesday to respect women's rights. Forgive those who fought them. And ensure afghanistan does not become a haven for terrorists as part of a publicity blitz aimed at reassuring world powers and fearful population following a lightning offensive across afghanistan. So many cities fall to the insurgents without a fight. The taliban have sought to portray themselves as more moderate than when they imposed a strict form of islamic rule in the late ninety s but many afghans remain skeptical and thousands of of race to the airport desperate to flee the country. Older generations. remember the talibans previous rule when they largely confined women to their homes banned television and music and held public executions. The talibans longtime spokesman promised they would honor women's rights within the norms of islamic law without elaborating the taliban have encouraged women to return to work and allowed girls to return to school handing out his limit headscarves at the door. A female news anchor interviewed a taliban official on monday in a tv studio. The treatment of women varies widely across the muslim world and sometimes even within the same country with rural areas tending to be far more conservative. Some muslim countries including neighboring pakistan have had female prime ministers while ultraconservative. Saudi arabia only recently allowed women to dry

"Claire welcome to the podcast thanks. I'm excited to be here Super excited to have you on a show and looking forward to our conversation we are. Of course gonna dig into all the amazing work you've been doing in the client mitts informatics field but to get us started. Wanna you share a little bit about your background and how you came to work at this confluence of data science machine learning and climate change. Yeah so actually. I grew up in new york city and was involved in environmental activism in high school. We organized the first environmental awareness day at our high school. You know this is in the late nineties. Mayor dinkins act came and spoke. This was in new york city. And i remember. We served lunch on frisbees. You know so that they would be reusable so some fun images there and then i came to college with science interests. There were major such as environmental science and public policy which i dabbled in but then i did earth and planetary sciences and i really wanted to understand climate change you know their issues of acid rain ozone hole and certainly a global warming even back then but i got more fascinated by the math of computer science. I had to take computer science to understand how these climate models worked but really got hooked in by things like logic and recurs and all the theoretical topics that fascinated me. So i studied. Ai machine learning for my phd and really environmentalism was on the back burner as more of an activist area and not an area of research for many years. But then when. I was finishing my post doc and applying for jobs i wrote about this idea of climate informatics. Because during grad school i had seen bioinformatics emerge as really revolutionizing various areas of biology by bringing in machine learning

"late nineties" Discussed on KLIF 570 AM

"Shares. I guess that means equity and the In the 2000 and eight financial crisis. Um, now there are 100%. Well, there's the 60 40 split. That means 40% fixed income 70 30 30%, you know for decent return. Guess what he said. You can't live on the income anymore. That's right. Well, the high yield index so far this year is up. So that's the right part of the fixed income market at least year to date. Everybody was scared last year and we said there'll be a cash flow panic after this is over, because rates are zero and stuff that pays five or more is valuable and it happened. So That's the cash flow revolution. Back when everybody went Ultra crazy on growth in the late nineties. The balance to say, What's my forward rate of return the cash flow revolution? What am I going to get paid? Led to decisions that helped portfolios to sustain the tech wreck without significant losses and then recover the next year, right? That was the cash flow revolution. Beginning? Yeah, just from a historical perspective. If you look at what happened from 2000 from that peak 2013 the average return the S P 500 was 2%. That's after it came back up. And that was the dividend yield on the S and P at the time. Oh, Okay? Yeah, that was it, So they didn't It was rather disturbing. Where if equity drops in here don't have any income. Then you have to sell shares. If you're retired. And that can that'll devastated portfolio. Wherever cashflow revolution and it's going, we're going to have to get very adept and we already are and the investment committee Very adept at utilizing corrections to add great dividend companies that have a catalyst for raising that dividend. That's that's going to be. I think the key over the next 10 years, which is why this title is the cash flow revolution and we'll have more on that coming up. 1992 actually was the first time the cash flow revolution took over. That means running a portfolio based upon current cash flow and the NPV of future cash flows. That was when the emerging market bonds became a thing. That's right after the great crisis in 1989, Treasure Secretary Baker went to all the money center banks and said You've blown too much money in Latin America. You're charging 20% interest and they're broke. What are we gonna do? So he came up with the Treasury stuck it into Bologna and made that into a bond. And that's called Brady Bonds. Yeah, that was after the the great Tequila crisis. Well, No. The tequila crisis 92. We made a bunch of money in that and then Mexico got in trouble. So we learned that you have to exit when things go to a premium. Alright, Then you have a little cash to buy to buy better interest. That was that was the key start. Now the ultimate combination of fundamental cash flow analysis combined with money flow, technical analysis, which you're an expert in that that helped The recovery, uh from the pandemic. And it's also preparation. We're raising a little cash now. Yeah, yeah, not a huge amount but incremental cash. I think if something's not working, it should be suspect and that's that's potentially deleted, which we do from time to time. Or if we get premiums, right. We like premiums and you just sell into it. That's the type of portfolio management that makes perfect sense. So I want to cover something on the green front. Oh, that's good, because the interview with stuck at Kumar coming up, That's right. So I've been saying this for a while. You watch the movie. What's it called? Your noble your noble Um uh, but nuclear momentum is building Australia's expanding a uranium mine. And, um, if you're going to have a a green economy, then you need some stable green power. Okay, or non polluting power and nuclear fits that bill pretty well. Um, if you look at the nuclear capacity under construction, um There's a whole bunch that are under construction. Nuclear under construction right now Across the world. China, South Korea, India, Turkey, UK, Japan, Russia. Even the United States has a little bit.

So i have done the both sides of the table. And when i sold it i join them As a partner. But i think my early days kind of back up battery morgan stanley. It's funny because it was in a lot of ways. It's a lot of the same stuff that i invest in now. It's just like you know. Concepts like cloud didn't exist and it was. We're talking about moving data for mainframes into servers. But it was you know moving data in storage and security and you know communications infrastructure in the light. We talked a lot about all the different. Osi layers and stuff. That will make me sound. You know fancy from back in the day but the reality there is nothing else to fund back then so but yeah i mean. I've been you sitting on board.

Naked Mole Rats: The Key to Slowing Human Aging?

"Rodents only live a few years. Maybe six at the most for some of the common ones. That's comparative biologist. Russia buffet stein was stunned in the late nineties. When the naked mole rats that she'd been studying just wouldn't die. She was working with some that. Were more than fifteen years old and one naked mole rat who she first met while doing doctoral work in the eighties. A pink and wrinkly dude named joe. He is now thirty nine years old and officially the oldest living naked mole rat on record. He's barely aged at all in nearly four decades and there is every expectation that he'll make it to the big four. Oh thanks to the work of buffon's stein and increasing number of scientists studying naked mole rats and various capacities. We now know that the creatures have an astonishing lifespan of around thirty years. Joe is an anomaly of the anomalies. Of course anyone who's read. Harry potter knows what's going on here. Joe is clearly a shape shifting wizard who faked his own death after joining a colton murdering his best friend. so he's been hiding out as a naked mole rat for the past few decades. I'm onto you joe. But magical explanations aside naked mole rats. It turns out are fascinating. In addition to living exceptionally long. Lives for rodents naked mole. Rats unlike other mammals aren't susceptible to many diseases like arthritis cancer and alzheimer's they can also withstand long periods without oxygen and are impervious to pain from acid. There is so much about naked mole. Rats that is absolutely wild and researchers still trying to figure out the reason for a lot of it but we're starting to get more information because a lot more players have entered the ring in recent years due to the naked mole rats relative lack of aging and low occurrence of age associated disease.

Welcome to trust colleen. Welcome to journalists. This is very much overdue. Some of our fashion historian. Listeners will probably know that you and i r- very dear friends but we've been trying to get you on forever and ever so. I'm so excited to talk to you today about your new project. Thank you. i'm really happy to be here. Yeah so some time ago you shared with me. I was like what. What are you working on now. And you said that your new project on fashion and the ninety s. And i was like ooh like hell ambitious and the reason i say this is ninety s. Fashion is very tricky period of time to tackle. It's not all that long ago. It's not like it's forgotten. And you and i were actually both teenagers in the ninety s. I think a little bit older than you. So i was early nineties. You're kind of late ninety s but we lived these close firsthand so it's not like we don't know anything about them and that's really interesting in and of itself because it's a bit of a rarity oftentimes that s fashion stories. We're working on periods where we actually wore those fashions. So the reason i'm saying it's tricky is because the nineties. The styles in fashion is exceedingly resistant to categorization. Would you agree with that. Oh yes that was one of the biggest houses with project. And you have this wonderful quote early on in the book and you're quoting a fashion journalist. Marion hume who wrote in harper's bazaar and the december nineteen ninety nine issue. You know like we're right on the edge of like going to the next millennium. And she said quote. We have lurched from modern to retro from glitz glamour from puritan pretty from military to minimal. Only to max. Out at the finale with an opulent flourish of beating and a rash of irony.

Officially an epidemic in the late nineties but obesity been for a couple of decades before that was only really in the nineties. It they said okay. This is an epidemic and it's growing it's been growing ever since so why even solve it. Why even look at this issue and say what are the things we can do to fix this problem.

I've got my family got my freedom and I got my food. I'm good from upright in the morning like I am right now. I'm already having a terrific day. But Your day will get significantly better. We're joined right now by Bob Barr. Bob Barr's president of the Law Enforcement Education Foundation, former gun congressman from Georgia and joins us a CZ often as you can Thank you for joining us against you. Great. Good to be. Let's have lunch again. I love it when you join us. Our audience loves when you're on And you know this stuff so good. So you say Right now, China is still my most recent op ed here. China is really starting to sweat the different ways that Trump is picking away at their spying in their intelligence maneuvers. Fine. China for decades has been getting away with all sorts of theft of not only our commercial information commercial data in this kind of tree. But national security data a cz well, we went into this in great detail back in the late nineties, when I was still in the congress. That was very clear, based on our study and our evidence and testimony of that time that China Then already at that time engaged for years in a long term complex scheme to siphon up vacuum vacuum up as much Data as they could, including national security data. Since then, very little has been done by the they Bush and Obama administration's Finally, the Trump administration is starting to come down hard on China. That's what's causing and the sweat. Unfortunately, the people at the Pentagon those still not do not seem to have gotten the message that you don't deal with China. China is an adversary there, not a friend. And yet people in the Pentagon don't seem to realize that Yeah, my backgrounds in technology, and you know, I can only imagine how sophisticated their technologies are. But Mr Bar I was just talking to a pretty high Republican in the RNC, who was saying that there look very seriously looking at there's about 300,000 donations made Teo Joe Biden through this act of blue platform, people's names made donations. They checked off the box unemployed and ActBlue doesn't reveal back. Check the credit card. As long as it's swipes, they don't they don't keep the information, they say. Could China be making donations? Backdoor troop back blow? It wouldn't surprise me at all back in the again back In the late nineties, we traced money coming in from the Chinese Communist Party and directly from the Chinese People's Liberation Army. Get to the Clinton Gore campaign. So the fact that China is trying to sneak money into fund campaigns for candidates that they would like to see an office such a Zonda Biden campaign Wouldn't surprise me in the least so and you know, back when you were in the Congress. You guys actually started a test force that came out with the Cox report. And you know, in your words here, it says that there were eye brow raising reports that you heard down that made you start the task force. Actually stole our U. S missile on weapons technology, most sensitive weapons systems, right? They did that That was back in the in the late nineties that has continued and time after time after time, when this information and what China is doing, Comes to the attention of the public and media folks who are concerned like yourself and even people in the government. The last three administrations have done very, very little to really stop it. Part of it has to do with commercial interests wanting to do business in China and with the Chinese. That's a problem. But what is particularly disturbing is the frequency with which we see. The Pentagon and as the Defense Department entering into contracts with companies that have ties to China. They and they do this on a regular basis and are not stopped from doing so you wouldn't get caught. You know, they make off these excuses. Well, we didn't really know that this pharmaceutical company had ties to China only know didn't know that this after our people are used had ties to China. You know, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out and discover these ties to China. Yet the Pentagon turns a blind eye to it, and it's very dangerous to our national security. So you go on to speak about a little later on area where I'm versatile. Failure that China Tic Tac's bite, Dance and Joe Me the China's largest cellphone companies. They are attempting to start US online stock brokerage companies. Now I could tell you That my background is in Wall Street, and I'm frequently a consultant for companies who are starting from scratch for US clearing firm. We can actually settled trades I've seen about 10 companies out of China. In the last 12 months applying to be a new US clearance broke a dealer and it just looks to me like they've figured out a way in our settlement system, Tau infiltrate and wash cash again. China and know far more about this than I do. I don't have the financial and technical background minus Mawr in law and prosecutions, but the Chinese resent the fact that they are not the world's premier financial power. And they are engaged in a long term project the long term goal to overtake the U. S in this regard and one of the ways that they hope to do that is to supplant the US in terms of its Ability and presses on the financial markets around the world in the stock exchange is precisely what China is trying to do. 100%. Then you talk here about you know this company we bull financial services, who I had some preliminary dealings with over the last couple of years. And they basically came into the US market did everything they had to do. There's good US people running it, but their money is behind it right And they made it. Zero trading. So zero commission trading and I think I'm saying like, why would they make it zero? They haven't haven't on the old alternative motive, but we bill was one of the first. Companies to break that free trading. And now you see all these other companies followed. So maybe they want to capture information. Maybe they just want to capture as much market shares they can. So they own more more of our U. S data, but they you can trade them for free zero. Certainly, that's what they want to and the reason at least one of the reasons why they're able to do this. Is because there is Chinese Communist Party money behind its not free up their prize. It is only free enterprise on the surface behind the surface behind the Green Curtain, so to speak, is the Chinese government, the Chinese Communist Party. I mean, I think a lot of people in America truly fully understand the way the country China works that if you're a successful company that's allowed to go, you know, worldwide government owns that. Right. Like I mean, I know this and you know this, but I mean, the government owns anything that is successful there..

"Since the late nineties the economy has been adding jobs for one hundred ten straight months including two hundred sixty six thousand in November which we just learned on Friday jobs are plentiful unemployment is at a half century low and the unemployment rate for African Americans Hispanics Asians and Americans with less than a high school education or all at the lowest level since the labor department began keeping track but heather long economics correspondent at The Washington Post says one of the lingering black marks on the strong jobs picture is white wages aren't growing heather set this up the big number everyone's talking about it is three point one percent that is the average hourly pay growth in the past year at first glance it sounds pretty good it's it's certainly better than it was a year ago when it was under three percent but you know as I point out been my story that this economy is basically the hottest since the late nineteen nineties but the pay then was going up over four percent a year so we're like a full percentage point below that any kind of scratch your head and say what's going on here yeah so right logic from the simpleton in me says employers are struggling to find people therefore they need to pay more to find these folks are to get these folks to retain them but that's not really what's happening yeah exactly and I can't tell you how many quotes I've had from a condiments and business leaders saying exactly what you just said they they've been predicting for the year after year I think I ran the first piece like this predicting the twenty sixteen would be the year we'd see a big spike in wage growth it didn't happen did it didn't happen really in twenty seventeen twenty eighteen and now in twenty eighteen again were a little higher but we've been inching higher there's been no spike like there has been passed periods and so that's again you're right that's what doesn't add up it doesn't make sense of it reporters are really struggling to find people what's going on and there's a lot of theories of course some people are quick to say oh well you know you there's not as many labor unions anymore workers are able to bargain for higher wages other people in the only point to healthcare costs so the money that may have been going to increase the workers hourly pay is instead going to pay for higher healthcare costs for employees other people say actually these companies and are whining a bit in the reality is we don't have as many people employed today as we did in the past and that sort of an employment ratio if you will the percent of Americans working in their prime age years is lower than it has been in the past and that implies that they're still potentially a million or more workers on the sidelines who could potentially get back in so maybe employers they may not like what they're seeing a man I mean I get the perfect candidate with a master's degree and I am eager to work for low wages but there may still be a lot of workers out there and that may be another reason that companies don't feel maybe as much pressure to raise wages as they did in the past speak with heather long economics correspondent at The Washington Post stories called this is the hardest job market since the nineteen nineties why aren't wages growing faster you did point out to I I think that with the working class folks and their wages are outpacing those of managers in some cases they are and that's the good news that is a little bit of evidence that both the minimum wage hikes that many states and cities have enacted are feeding through and also that that is more evidence of a tighter labor market when you see more competition for people working in the Walmart in the McDonald's of the world so does wages are growing just shy of three point seven percent a year SO good bit higher than three point one but again those workers what you might call the working people they were seeing what wage growth well over four percent in the late nineteen nineties in just before the Great Recession seven two thousand six two thousand seven when things were pretty tight labor market also seen that over four percent growth we have not hit that level yet what's that word that you're referencing the story that's considered a phenomenon in economics is it monopsony you got it you got a bit of a mouth full no no a monopoly the idea that there's only one firm selling something so they can charge really high prices well the other explanation for why we did learn going faster that we have this monopsony concept and what that means is there's more and more in many parts of the country there's only one big employer usually a hospital lately and so if that company is the only big game in town they are the one buyer of labor so they basically get to set the wage in the community and unfortunately a lot of those big players are setting wages lower than they would have been the

"And I I think the flip side of it. Of course, is that there are times where teams actually do change making major drop off. And I think if you're you know, I think for me on the kind of person Ryan pretty hesitant to make changes and sort of shift away view teams, and you kind of miss it. You kind of get kinda get stuck behind. And you're not catch up to the new information. It's a tough balance. But I think it's like you said, I think it's human nature. I think when you see see what happened to the page. Treats on Sunday. I mean, even if you don't think while the patriots are doomed and Bella check needs to get fired and gronk needs to, you know, get traded or we obviously like that's a little extreme. But I think it is natural to sort of look at that. And be like, okay. Oh, maybe it's not our ear. Maybe it's just not meant to me with the patriots. We've seen it. I mean, this is a it's a really fascinating team. And I think it's one of the rare cases where we've had a big enough sample when it comes to Belichick Brady and the patriots as a whole that we've seen so many things happen to them. And then go through so many different struggles. And then figure things out and be fine by the end of the year. That's right. And and you know, I want to tell a quick story Bill that I just remember from when I first started covering the league, you know, back in the mid to late nineties and the patriots had a cornerback who had played for Carolina. I think his name was Steve Lofton. I don't I should have it off the top of my head. But he was like a nickel corner. Forgive you. And he only played for Dom Capers. He said, I said, I said give me some advice, you know, as a young reporter, like what what do I need to know? And he said for him one of the things done Capers. Once told them was like this league has so many ups and downs and twists and turns that the best way to approach things is to keep it even of a keel as you can like don't ride the roller coaster, you know, to go so far up because then the down will be such a crash. I think that's sort of ties into what we're talking about here. You know, like one week, it can be a really really Scott gut wrenching loss like the patriots had. But you know, if they come back and beat Pittsburgh. You know what I mean? Like, you don't wanna go so high that you're sorta it's so volatile. You just try to keep it right in that middle ground. And and that's usually a fairly good place to be. I think it is too. I think that it makes total sense, by the way, it was Steve Lofton. You're correct. Yeah. Yeah. In nineteen Ninety-seven patriots ninety eight but she played ten games over two years for the mass Evan in ninety eight two decades ago. How about that pulling that out, and I was like should I do it? Should I do it? And then you had my back. See that's great teamwork right there that was that was like a combo block right there. I loved it. I quote unquote did my job by tried to offer. Well, like, there's always a pleasure to have you on the show where can people check out all the stuff you do covering the patriots? Well, ESPN we have so many great platforms, as you know, you know, right on ESPN dot com every team has its page. I'm patriots page, and then you can go ESPN Boston dot com..

"Podcast is brought to you by knowledge award. How many of you have used a mapping feature, whether it be on your smartphone on your computer? Whatever. I know that I use a quite a bit personally, for many people mapping apps are the necessity to get around in locations that they might not be familiar with. But what isn't realized by some is that when mapping became an important part of our new digital culture, it also helps spun off a variety of other innovations as well. Bill killed as a former marketing director at keyhole company that was bought by Google several years ago. He takes deeper dive into the world of mapping in his new book. Never lost again, the Google mapping revolution that sparked new industries and augmented our reality. It's pleasure to have Bill joining us on the show. Bill welcome. Hi, Dan, thanks for having me. Thank you. So let's start with keyhole and tell us about the company and how it really came about and and just the back story on how mapping became such an important idea. To bring forward. Well, the the backstory on keyhole it was a startup that happened in the late nineties or some technologies that we're starting to converge in the late nineties. GPS devices and phones broadband internet access was becoming commonplace. Three graphics chips in everyday consumer PC's was really starting to enable sort of a new wave of user experiences and mapping. And so the company was started in nineteen ninety nine by guy named John Hanky who I went to work for and very long story short. I was bought by Google in October of two thousand four and became kind of the foundation layer of Google maps and Google earth. In two thousand five, both products were launched in in two thousand five. I mean, obviously, I don't know if if the mindset back then you could really even forecast all of this great innovation that has come off it and the fact that.
