Biden May Have Committed 'Treason' With Abrupt Afghanistan Withdrawal
"Was looking up. Treason this morning Treason against the united states consists of levying war against them or in adhering to their enemies giving them aid and comfort. No person should be convicted of treason. Unless on the testimony of two witnesses in open court. Well it's kinda hard to believe that. As lou dobbs said earlier in the show leaving billions of dollars of expensive hi-tech military equipment did not give aid and comfort to our enemies And i bet you you could get a number of people just from listening to the mike gallagher. Show who would testify in. Open court against joe biden if somebody wanted to start treason or start impeachment proceedings. Both of which i think are not Out of the question particularly given the fact that when president trump was indicted not once but twice by congress obsessed over national security because he made a couple of phone calls to the president of ukraine and they said put pressure on him to investigate hunter biden. Of course hundred vidon. Well i'm not even gonna get into that. We all know that story covered up by the mainstream media.

Hurricane ida has slowed to a tropical storm and moved north but it has left behind a tremendous mess flooded roads toppled power lines. Cars and houses swept away. At least four people are dead. Senator bill cassidy. A republican from louisiana joins us now from baton rouge senator. Thank you very much for making time for us today. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it look. I know you're no stranger to hurricanes in louisiana but when you recently flew over the southern part of your state in a us coastguard plane. Did you see anything that surprised. You were just just the grandma for example which is often had hard had obviously been completely washed oliver and one of my one of my colleagues said that he thought this was the worst. He's ever seen granddaughter Now maybe we should be surprised. It is an incredibly incredibly powerful hurricane and so we're not surprised On the other hand just to see the flooding. The devastation was heartbreaking in thankfully the levies. That protect new orleans held this time. Unlike what happened. Sixteen years ago during katrina. But senator as you well know. The power is out for a million people and businesses across the state and could be for weeks. It is very hot d. Do you feel like this could be a situation. Where many people survive the initial storm. But perhaps not the disaster that follows. Why don't think they'll die as long as they commonsense precautions but to your point the aftermath. We have to take care of just as much as we did preparing for the storm itself.
Ida Slams Louisiana's Coastline, Leaving a Path of Destruction
"Storm that was hurricane ida is spinning into northern alabama and eastern tennessee. Today it's still packing heavy rain and thirty mile per hour winds. The storm is already carved a path of destruction from the louisiana coast through northern mississippi. President biden said monday that the federal government will help. Anyway it can. We've got a million people in louisiana without power and for time. I caused the mississippi river to literally changes direction and some folks are still dealing with the storm.

The storm is blamed for at least two deaths of motorists who drowned in new orleans and a person by a falling tree outside about an rouge new orleans. Mayor latoya cantrell said the good news. Is that her cities. Levy system passed a major test case scenario. It did not happen. We did not have another katrina. And that's something again. We should all be grateful for however the impact is absolutely significant. She said the city and the state are only beginning to survey the destruction. The damage to the power grid was so extensive. That officials warned. It could be weeks before it's repaired.

Can You Copyright a Drumbeat? With Kurt Dahl
"Go back as far as you can about copyright and drumbeats and the issues that have been around since the beginning of copyright he well. That's that's a daunting ask. But i'll i'll tackle it. I like it You know it's interesting. I think and i guess a starting point i would say is you know just to clarify you know when we're talking about like can you copyright drumbeat. We're talking about like more on the songwriting side of things. Like as far as because there's two copyrights every song that this one in the recording and then one in the actual song itself like you know the the songwriting and now. I think we'll come back probably a lot today. Those two different copyrights those. It's a very important distinction right. Because on the recording side you definitely have a copyright on your performance on john bonham Amazing beats on the levy breaks. You can damn while bad that that's copyrighted. It's owned by atlantic records And if you tried like sample if you sample that iconic drumbeat will then technically yours you need permission or you need to pay a royalty right. So and this is where that gets into sampling. That's a whole other discussion. I think right sampling recording. That's different and that's where amazing records like paul's boutique. By the beastie boys. They had so many samples on there. There were not authorized and then like basically paul's boutique could not be recorded today with Too much legwork in too many licenses to become profitable but that's on the recording side. Now what we're really talking about is is essentially as drum is drowning songwriting. You can you. Could i as drama gold lay down. Beat the levy breaks drumbeat on a new song that my batters recording and get away with it and from what i my research tactically. The answer is yes you you can't really bonham or his state can't really say that's his drumbeat. You can't go steal that But i think. So if i if i did go and play that exact drumbeat on some other music. Some other guitar riffs. Whatever i mean people would call me a hack and a thief but you know. I think what i've found is that i don't think his estate could like sue me and say. Hey you're you're infringing
Jon Levy on Cultivating Influence to Build Friendships
"You're around twenty eight twenty nine and you decide to start this thing that you call the influencers dinner right but it hits an interesting twist. Can you kind of tell our listeners about the the roles of this dinner. It's kind of little a little bit different. So i wanted to figure out how to connect with these highly influential people and i realized i needed to do something completely out of the ordinary or they would never notice me so invite twelve people at a time. But they're not allowed to talk about what they do or even give their last name. They cook dinner together. And then when we sit down to eat we play a ridiculous game. We try to guess what people do professionally. And then we find out we're sitting with about laureates. Olympians editors achieve celebrities. Grammy award winning musicians. I hosted over two thousand people ranging from like the world's foremost expert on infectious diseases to members of royalty and even the voice of the dog from who let the dogs out who won a grammy for the fell. Like just ridiculous people right and it's grown into by the largest community of its type in the world of thousand members. Two hundred twenty seven dinners ten cities in three countries. Yeah it's kind of silly also not silly. It sounds awesome and this idea. You know what it's turned into. It seems like it's a little bit different than what it really starts. Your original goal wasn't necessarily like changed the world. It will bring together awesome. People is what you're saying. Yeah book yeah it's I figured that you know. I didn't wanna be networker when you look at the the research networking people absolutely hate it. I mean it's just miserable. It makes us feel dirty. But i realized doesn't make us feel dirty is making friends and being a part of a community so i figured if i could get these people not just to connect with me but with each other. Their lives would improve and so admired in the process so that was my focus. It's not just about knowing somebody but for them to know that. I know and as many of them as possible. Everybody's better off.
When Sea Levels Rise, Who Should Pay?
"We're beginning with a giant pile of dirt. Okay i'll go with it. i'll go with it. okay. It's not just any pile of dirt. It happens to be right outside of facebook's campus in the san francisco bay area where we're standing right. Now is the outboard levy of the facebook campus in menlo park. That's kevin murray. He works for the san francisco creek joint powers authority which is an agency that works on flood protection in the area. We're walking on top of that levee which surrounds the tech companies brightly colored buildings. So why does facebook need a levy. Well the company's headquarters is right on the shoreline of san francisco bay and over the last decade. They've built huge state of the art buildings on the waterfront. So the levy is protection from the bay. But kevin told me levy isn't exactly the right way to describe it because a levee is designed to protect people at has to meet engineering standards that ensure it holds up these don't those structures that are providing flood barrier now are not adequate and are subject to failure if we have a really big tide or a big wind event or a big storm surge so lauren did facebook know that when they built their they did and now the risk is getting even bigger because sea levels are rising in a hotter climate so the region is looking at building a bigger levee. Sixteen feet tall. It will cost more than one hundred million dollars and the federal government. Just preliminarily awarded about half that money. But that's raising questions about who should be footing. The bill for adapt into the consequences of climate change. Coastal cities are going to need billions of dollars to protect their shorelines from rising
How You Maximize the Quality of Your Life with Behavioral Scientist Jon Levy
"I'm a person who really throws myself into. Whatever i think might be able to improve the quality of life and so i would do courses and read books and so on and one of the things that i jumped into was a seminar and a seminar leader. Said something that really had me me examined the entire way. My life is set up. He said that the fundamental element that defined the quality of our lives are the people we surround ourselves with and the conversations of behalf of them and he said that means that. If you want to impact your life what you need to do is either change the conversations that you're having with people or change the people you're having them with and that was fundamentally different than what everybody else was saying. I was setting my alarm for like crazy early in the morning and then headaches news eight thousand times and skipping the gym and feeling bad about it and he's now saying maybe you should just hang out with a bunch of people who fitness as part of their life and instead of going to the movies and eating tub of popcorn you'll meet them for a run and then it becomes natural for your life while i'm a science geek. I'm a behavioral scientist now. And so i looked at the research and there was this crazy study. By these two guys chris and fowler and they were actually looking at the obesity epidemic and they were curious does it spread from person to person. I got cold or is it. A percentage of the population like alzheimer's. Right you don't get alzheimer's shook hands with somebody who has alzheimer's and what they found was startling. If you have a friend who's obese your chances increase by forty five percent your friends who don't even know them have a twenty percent increase. Chance and their friends have a five percent increase chant and this kind of effect is true for happiness marriage and divorce trait smoking habits voting habits bitterly. Everything spreads from person to person and so i figured my biggest responsibility for my life would be to not only connect with extraordinary people balloons. It could have really in tact a really meaningful impact on my life but tabs them connect with each other so it spreads further and that was kind of the piffling. The problem is i. frankly didn't come from like when those super connected rich families. My parents are immigrants. And so i had to then figure out how to connect with the people i admired
Can America Fix Its Trains?
"Take a trip into the near future with me. A future where amtrak service looks less like the slow old system that we all know and more like the bullet trains that whisked people across countries like japan and france. This is what i think of as normal high speed rail's new york to washington an hour forty five. Maybe forty new york. Boston about the same new york philly should be forty forty five minutes apart. That's alon levy who has spent a lot of time thinking about how to improve train. Service blonde is a mathematician by training. But they're working now on. Something called the transit costs project at new york university. The project keeps track of how much similar train projects cost in. Different countries in the lawn is also an advocate for how american train travel should be what i would call train. Utopia ideally enter. The train station may be five minutes before the train departs. You can find an advance and reserve a seat. If you're with a friend you can reserve seats together. Emperor doesn't let now. There's lots and lots of capacity so you don't need to charge really high prices to avoid the train getting fall. Let's say new york and boston might be forty nine dollars. Tranche are going to be very frequent and the reason is that the northeast. Carter is enormous. How many people live there. It's what fifty million people between four enormous metropolitan areas so instead of having to two hours or half an hour you'd be waiting fifteen minutes.

What the Infrastructure Deal Means for Energy
"I'm David Brancaccio. Good morning to you. There is now a bill crafted to spend nearly a trillion dollars on infrastructure in America. And while it could pass into law that is not a foregone conclusion. The bill, drafted by a bipartisan team working over the weekend was unveiled last night. It isn't quite 3000 pages long and amendments are expected. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer expects a vote within quote a matter of days. Beyond the roads and bridges. Let's look at cleaner energy products there in buses. Hydrogen power charging stations for electric cars. Marketplaces Amanda FEATURE has more on that. Before installing a new electric car charging station. Jonathan Levy says his company Vico needs to know there's plenty of demand. We don't want to overbuild the charging infrastructure and not have the vehicles to be using it. That's where those federal dollars would come in to pay for new charging stations in, say, rural communities. Paul Bledsoe with the Progressive Policy Institute says that new infrastructure would also get more EVs on the road. That's really the only thing holding back people from buying electric vehicles now is concerns over charging the bill. Also funds pilot projects like carbon capture, but it doesn't do as much for more mature, clean energy technology. Abigail Ross Hopper is with the Solar Energy Industries Association. We had our time in the sun as a niche kind of science experiment, but that's over and what Ross Hopper says the solar industry needs to do now is deploy. Deploy, deploy. What would help get more solar panels out there, she says, are permanent tax

Why am i with holding. Why am i saying thanks to poke the bear and make her feel worse. Like how is that gonna help any literally. How is that could help. That's actually pretty cruel. And i never i. I don't know. I never realized that. So twofold i mean what. I realized nikki. Like if you don't like that about her then fix your own shit. You know like i wish i was a little bit of a stronger person. I think seem strong on the outside. But i i'm such a i'm so sensitive. It's so sensitive and as probably talked to people for a living you know. I can connect like that. But and but the other. Amore important thing i took away is nikki. If you want your mom to feel better about herself you could actually play a small part in that. And it's kind of changed things the last couple of weeks. It's very strange. I won't jump down her throat. i'll be like mom. It's great that you're on lie. Starting online date mom. It's wonderful like god build someone up. Nobody needs to be tear down. It was it was just.

I wrote this thing but it just feels like a closer relationship and like i'm less angry. That's pretty good endorsement for the morning pages. Yeah i mean they haven't all been that revelatory but yeah. I don't know if that if you relate to that at all but big time. Yeah yeah yeah I you know. I it's funny the artist's way is come up for me so many times in recommended me so many times in the thing that has always kept away from it is knowing that there is a week a stage at which you are supposed to not read anything. And that's what. I and. I know that i can't do it. So it keeps me from even cracking the blunt. Now you're not. I didn't even know that i am. I making that up nikki. Have you got that. i just finished. It's the reading deprivation. Oh can you hear me. Yeah oh you just finished it. I just finished it a week ago and That that that week. That's that's for dave. I think that's four And it's called reading deprivation because of this was written before social media. You're not supposed to read twitter or you're not supposed to scroll instagram or facebook. Or whatever else you do you know. I would have to jump on instagram. Four don't tell my mother rate so for posting stuff. I would have to jump on or see who comment. I guess i didn't. I don't have to but i feel like that's work right and that's my job so i do that and then if i start to scroll i stopped myself. I saw myself and same thing with facebook of after post something. I don't scroll in a crowd. Of course a bunch of times. I started to go shit. Stop scrolling. But i'll tell you something that they've actually been times this week. That i've revisited Revisited that reading deprivation. Because the the whole idea of the reading deprivation i guess. Is that like at creative people. Tend to fill ourselves other people's creative stuff right. Like i love to read like i told you i read casey's book i'm reading to other book simultaneously you know i've finished casey's but now i'm reading this other book that i love called what got you here won't get you there like i. I love to read so but it allowed me to have my own thoughts and also it allowed me to not do the compare and despair shit on social media which is just really a shit storm. I think for everybody. It helped me. i think. Feel a little more. I don't know composed. I guess would not a word i usually use but something i'm i'm picking up what you're laying down the you are. You are making the artist's way sound a lot less terrifying I knew nothing short. The don't read anything week. I think it's week four. I think it's the week. I i think that's what it was well. Then i've made it to week three and that's of your own thoughts that's fine. I've i've tried it before to now.

"levy" Discussed on 850 WFTL
"And like we always say don't fear Levy, you hire Levy, and you wanna Levy on your side not want against you, Greg. I wanna talk a little bit now about we had a couple of clients come in this week. In fact, it was on Thursday if I'm not mistaken, that's one came in. It was a nice lady, and she had her son on the phone who was up in Gainesville Orlando or somewhere and said, look, my parents have a business. They just need to get their books in order. They need to do some bookkeeping work besides tax resolution, which they ended up owing. They just wanted to get their books in order and presumably they're gonna attacks is because they haven't been taken a paycheck the right way. But when you were an IRS revenue officer, how many times, you know, laws count over thirty years. But didn't you see a lot where a taxpayer? The roots of their problem was. A lack of books. The bookkeeping wasn't done. Didn't exist was messy was haphazard or out of the shoebox. And the biggest question that we asked our clients. What do you make what's your answer that what's your income? Well, how do you know what you could afford to pay the IRS or NATs? Are you truly inefficiential hardship? Or not didn't you see that a lot when you were at the IRS. We're just clients will taxpayers you call them that didn't have any idea. They're going and what's going on with their books. Yeah. All the time. I used to see that still see here. We'll get new clients. And they don't know what they're doing again. That's the foundation of a good business. You have to keep track of the books and records. You have to keep careful records here to see what is going on in your business. Are you really making money or you losing it? Because you don't know you think you're making great gobs of money because you have great grosses. But if you have a lot of expenses, and you're not properly crediting them, guess what?.
"levy" Discussed on The Frame
"Thanks. John horn will host the frame from the Sundance film festival starting tomorrow and coming up actor writer Daniel Levy on the breakout success of his sitcom cook created with his dad Eugene Levy. Now before we bring you the next segment. Here's a friendly warning about some language, you're about to hear there's a really funny sitcom on the pop cable network that's named after the tiny town where it set shits creek. And that spelled S C H I T T S. It's also where the show's main characters the once very wealthy rose family find themselves literally and metaphorically after losing everything the series now in its fifth season two picks the roses as they rebuild their lives. And the relationship is a family. It was co created by Daniel Levy, and his father the veteran comedic actor Eugene Levy, they also portray father and son in the show and in this scene. The elder Levy as patriarch Johnny rose schools has adult son David on something he never had to worry about until now. Oh, David rose. You're applying for the bag boy position. Tell me David. What do you want this? Joe? I don't want this Trump. Well, thank you very much and don't expect to phone call. All right. Do it. Right. Or let's not do it. We're gonna start again challenge. David. Why do you want this job? I ran an cream. You're not going to get this job. You're not going to get this job. Danya Levy told me he sometimes draws on his real life relationship with his dad to help shape, the scripts and the onscreen gags. I mean, certainly there are buttons. I know that I can right into the show that I can push for him, which is fun. I know sort of more intimately what gets his goat in our first season. For example. I wrote an episode where Johnny which is the character. My dad plays on the show wakes up to a a leak in the ceiling and dirty water had been dripping on his head all night long. Mike dad is someone who takes great care and attention to his hair. He does not like people touching it. Knowing that writing an episode where he has to wake up with just a wet sopping wet head of hair to me was was very funny, and unfortunately turned into a very funny scene. So yeah, of course, I think having that kind of father son relationship, we can access things that you wouldn't be able to access, you know, if we didn't have that especially the sort of bickering back and forth, and and all that fun stuff you and your younger sister, Sarah. Who in the show has a recurring role is twyla the sweet, but dimwitted waitress at the local diner you were actually raised in your native Canada. Even though you're dead. Eugene Levy was working a lot in Hollywood. What led to your parents decision to bring you up away from that Hollywood life? Yeah. He wanted us to have a a very sort of for lack of a better word normal upbringing. And I know that it must have been a great sacrifice for him. Not. Being in Los Angeles. As an actor is is not the wisest choice. If you were to ask you probably an agent, but I think it's a testament to Meigs values and really how he's managed to navigate a career in this industry that is entirely on his terms. And that that's a pretty admirable thing. Your character in the show David is is pan sexual and what I really like is that his sexuality is never a point of conflict in the show. He's not struggling with it, nor is he ever attacked for it. What is in conflict, though, is how he navigates a very kind of tumultuous love life and his struggles with intimacy. So how did you decide to play him this way? I think it was about wanting to tell a story that had a happy ending. I think so many queer relationships are you are met with CAA. Conflict or tragedy. And it's funny because even in the first couple seasons of my relationship now with my boyfriend on the show we were hearing so many people over Twitter and social media saying Wednesday gonna fall apart. So for me, it was really important to show that you can have an that many people do have ferry functioning normal great loving relationships, and that by removing homophobia from our world, you know, I made the choice not to ever explore that on the show. You are showing by example, just how full alive and how joyous alive and how love filled a life. You can have without that to fight against. So yeah, it was a very active
