Psychic Loses Abilities After Car Crash, Didn’t See It Coming
"A psychic who was caught in a car crash has failed to predict a number of things. tip stevenson. You following the story. I am the psychic call crash. He didn't see that coming gag from every single newspaper. This written about it but a psychic maurice under claims to have lost his psychic abilities and the affected his sex life as well that was also added in. I mean he couldn't see coming in a number of ways as somebody who's recently been in a motor vehicle accident. I am interested in this. I got into a fight with an airbag but it came off worse and is very deflated about the whole thing. I watched that clip on this morning. Which is way he's A paid a couple of times giving psychic predictions and on the show he claimed to do something called face reading which is reading a face then predicting the future which is what the rest of school social interaction and then it gets better. Fan says when you're doing face readings what about if if if someone who's had plastic surgery and then he said this right. Yes i have a friend. Who is a scorpio. But she went to lebron knows fitted. Yes you thought correctly fitted then she became incredibly successful. What's the kiss. Elite bernardo's is in the shape. Some scales i don't know i. I am a libra. I don't know if this is. Are we just going to stop pretending this thing now. Don't get me started on rights. Such a terry and toes look headline like this is not a thing i made. Also the once you enter this sphere. I don't know if you can pick and choose between nonsenses like if you're going into the psychic reading you gotta go into the lieber knows you can't go on this because that's a very gemini thing to do if your psychic reading abilities have survived your car crash so we can verify through anecdotal evidence. Yes they did like literally as soon as it happened. I when i'm going to lose work. Which i did because i was unable to confirm a tv. Show the next day due to having a split lip. So i feel like in many ways. My psychic abilities were fairly heavily
The Importance Of Diversifying Alzheimer's Research
"John. Let's talk about what alzheimer's disease as an how it's related to other forms of dementia right so dementia is an overarching term. That refers to thinking and memory problems from lots of causes including stroke or head injury. Alzheimer's is far and away. The most common cause of dementia at least in later life and it refers to the specific process where these toxic plaques and tangles build up in the brain and eventually start killing neurons. Those are the brain cells. We used to think and remember an for black americans. How much greater is their risk of developing alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Some studies show that the risk is twice as high as it is for a white american though the exact amount still kind of in question and by the way there's also some evidence that lat next people also have a higher risk and asian americans appear to have a low risk than white americans. Okay and do. Scientists know why they're such huge disparities not fully. Some of the difference probably has to do with known risk factors for alzheimer's so health problems like heart disease. High blood pressure diabetes obesity. All of these increase a person's risk for alzheimer's and these factors are more common in black americans and they are in white americans. There's also at least one. Genetic risk factor. Okay people who have one or two copies of a gene called abeille. Four are more likely to develop alzheimer's and the four gene appears to be more common in people of african ancestry but scientists really don't understand alzheimer's very well in anyone. They've been testing all of these alzheimer's drugs for decades and really nothing has worked so research is still. Don't know whether all of these factors put together can fully explain why alzheimer's is so much more common in black americans. John that's really tough to hear. I mean you mentioned healthcare earlier. The you know that black americans have less access to care for loved ones with alzheimer's. What do we know about that. Just a couple of weeks ago. Alzheimer's association released a report on race ethnicity and alzheimer's and i talked with brain scientists. Maria correo who is now the chief science officer there. here's part of what. She told me about what they learned from a survey of people who were caring for a friend or family member with alzheimer's among nonwhite caregivers half say they've faced discrimination when navigating through the healthcare system with a top concern being the providers. Don't even listen to what they're saying. Perhaps because of their race color or ethnicity that's really frustrating and not surprisingly black americans. Were the most likely to report discrimination. Okay so we've talked about risk we've talked about care. Let's talk about research so as scientists are trying to find treatments. What can be done to make. Sure that black americans are included in that research. Several things they can change. The racial and ethnic composition of the people who do research black researchers are more likely to have ties within black communities and are more likely to make sure that studies are inclusive. Researchers can also change the racial and ethnic composition of the people who participate in research studies and they can focus on questions about why. Alzheimer's appears to act differently in people of different races. Yeah i mean. These are really good goals to have of course but our researchers getting any closer to achieving them. I've seen some encouraging signs especially when it comes to diversifying scientific studies so for example a couple of years ago researchers formed a group called the african ancestry neuro science research initiative. I spoke to one of the brain scientists involved. Dr cuff weeds rossa. He's a psychiatrist and a professor at duke university. He told me he joined the effort when he realized that his own ancestors who came from west africa had been excluded from genetic studies of brain disorders. It was clearly an immediately evident to me how much of a problem this was right because for me as one who does what we call basic research. In other words. I take the genes that are found in human gene studies and then i studied them in model organisms in other words things like mice or rats and understand how it changes other brain works. It meant that. I was studying genes. That were specifically related to onus in folks of european ancestry which would mean that cough fleet. Derosa was only studying the genes of a narrow segment of people. Which sounds pretty. messed up. If you're trying to figure out the genetic story of how. Alzheimer's affects all people like what is the scientific justification for this approach. Years ago the logic was that it would be easier to find genes responsible for brain disorders in people of european descent. The reason is that they tend to be very similar genetically to one another. The genes of people of african ancestry vary a lot more now. Technology has made genetic sequencing so widely available that you can easily study all kinds of people and scientifically you should because people with different ancestries can have genetic differences that affect their risk for diseases like alzheimer's absolutely and have scientists learned anything new about alzheimer's disease from studying it in black americans. Maybe you know that. Jean april four. That increases a person's risk of developing alzheimer's. Especially if you inherit two copies one from each of your parents so the gene is more common among black americans but it may be less risky for them. Some other genetic factors seems to protect people of african ancestry from the bad effects of a four. I spoke with dr daniel weinberger. He's a scientist at the lieber institute in baltimore. And he's also part of the african ancestry neuroscience research initiative. Here's what he told me about april four. If you inherit the risk form of that gene from both of your parents and your european ancestry that increases your likelihood of manifesting outside disease later in life about twenty fold if have african ancestry the risk from inheriting that gene from both your parents is about a fourth of what it is if you were of european ancestry so if scientists could figure out what the protective mechanism is they might be able to develop a drug. That would help protect all people who have at least one copy of the four gene and that is by the way tens of millions of people in the us alone now. That sounds really promising. But it's gonna take a lot more research right that also broadens who's being included in that research it will truly diversifying the groups of people in research studies is really challenging and scientists know. They can't do it on their own. So the african ancestry project for example has involved. People like reverend alvin hathaway. He's the pastor of union baptist church in baltimore. He told me one challenge facing scientists. Is that a lot of black. Americans are pretty skeptical about this kind of research. You know clearly when you begin to talk about The brain you begin to talk about the genome data set immediately within the community. That triggers all kinds of suspicions It triggers a lot of suspicions because There has been arguments that The caucasian brain is different from the brain of people of african descent and one of the amazing revelations that i found. Was that when you actually look at brain tissue. You can't discern difference right. Scientists propped up thinking for a long time. And you're saying the legacy of that lives on. Yes it does so john. How'd you researchers with the african ancestry project and other groups navigate that the alzheimer's association did a survey a few months ago. That found that one in five black americans would actually feel insulted. If a doctor even suggested a cognitive assessment to detect alzheimer's so of medicine has a lot of work to do to build trust with black americans and other minority groups. I talked about what that might take with. A scientist named lisa barnes. She's a professor and also a cognitive neuropsychologist at the old timers disease center in chicago. She told me she often. Here's the same comment. When she approaches groups that have been marginalized about doing a research study especially when that may take years to complete these researchers come in and they collect all these data than we never hear from you again so we we also give back so we who make sure that we go back to the community and update them on what we're finding we give their vice about how we're interpreting data. So we try to really make it a partnership between us and the community. And i think that that goes a long way and building trust and and and having them stay with us for the long haul.
Kenny Jacoby talks about the investigation into the LSU athletics department
"We spend a lot of time in the first hour. Talking about the news from lsu today in case you missed it. We had kenny jacoby on. We'll be talking about this story all afternoon. Long as we talked to some of the great legends of the sec. We ask any you. Kobe how involved were the board of supervisors at lsu. They signed off on Less is less miles is You know private written reprimand for these allegations against the students And that's what a lot of the students. I've been speaking to today at said to as you know. These people have known about these issues for a long time and nothing has been done about it until now until it appeared in a national newspaper that was earlier today. With kenny jacoby I wonder there were so many interesting things. We'll keep recapping this for those of you getting on. But i also asked him about joa. Lieber the athletic director who according to the report wanted to fire less miles after the allegations but they kept him until we started losing. The athletic director found his conduct. So disturbing Back in two thousand thirteen that he said he thought they could fire him over with 'cause but instead they essentially swept the thing under the rug didn't tell the public about it Gave him a private letter of reprimand and and made them ten counseling but then kept them around for another three years until he started losing games. So i mean if that doesn't tell you who really you know has the power and the influence at that university It's hard to say what us and what exactly kenny were. Those accusations against less miles less miles. was accused of sexually harassing At least two if not three or more Student workers who worked in the athletic department He essentially wanted a role in personally interviewing them and selecting who would be picked and he what we learned today is he had a preference toward blonde Women with large breasts Who were you know particularly attractive. He he wanted this. As a way of sort of selling it to potential recruits selling the school As far as the sexual harassment. What we what we learned is that the he you know when he hired these Young women he sometimes offered them To help their careers later later. Down the line after they graduated and then kind of turned that into a more personal relationship with them and and then ultimately one of the women said he kissed her alone when he was driving her in his car One of the other students that that was mentioned in this report today said that she had a very traumatic experience when she was alone in a room with him and alleged some sort of unwanted touching and and Decide such a profound impact on her that she basically up and

What the pandemic has revealed about the real value of college
"We've got a moment. We're in crisis. Can we do better. Ron lieber is asking that very question in his new book. The price you pay for college is the author of the new york times personal finance column your money ron for years and years and years. We weren't thinking about the price of college the value of college. Is it worth it. Well i think you have to start by asking yourself what college is right. what is college for. I wasn't sure what the answer to. That question was so i asked you know scores of families and i heard the same things over and over again colleges for getting an education for having your mind grown in your mind blown. It is for kinship. It is for finding the people who will carry you through life. It is for getting a credential whether it's the gold plated one that will open doors or just the degree that will allow you to grasp hold of the middle class and hopefully stay there and so in order to answer. The question of whether college is worth it. You need to find it for your individual family that we as a nation can dictate for any given individual but then how did we get to this place right. My dad worked in the summer and put himself through school and had a tiny bit of debt. After how did college get this expensive. There are so many more things pulling on our household incomes than there used to be. We are entirely responsible in most instances for our own retirement. We're paying more and more out of our own pockets for healthcare. Many people are paying off their own student. Loan debt well into their forties or fifties right so people don't have the same kind of disposable income as they might have earlier states have reduced their subsidies towards higher education which means the price of the state schools has gone up and the private institutions. They've gotten more and more expensive so the middle class. There is being squeezed. This whole idea of i want to go to a liberal arts college and better myself and in the world is will be. My voice. teacher is kind of an antiquated thought. Sure i'd like to enrich myself but not if it's going to put me in hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt. I remember when i was a senior in college. I went to lehigh and lee. Could absolutely help you on the career services front. If you wanted to go work in an accounting firm or be an engineer i wanted to work in investment banking so i drove to new york city with my mother and i stuck into the career services office at columbia university and i borrowed these giant binders. That had every piece of information that you needed for every bank every financial institution so you could apply for the summer internships. Now i went to the photocopy machine to start and you needed to have a school. I d to use the photocopier. I got caught. And i got kicked out the reason i bring this up. We send these kids to college but the best jobs are directly linked to only a few schools. So do we need to start looking at. Here's a college. What is the job. My child is going to get on the other side because otherwise they will be sitting here in hundreds of thousands of dollars with a debt. Yes to all of that first of all. That is the most bad ass career services story that i have ever heard your description of this as quote unquote best jobs right. I mean it is true that the best jobs in investment banking very narrow feel from certain institutions. Right unless you beat down the door but are those. The best jobs in america are the best jobs for anyone. Goldman sachs's is hiring. All these people in salt lake city now do not come from columbia and harvard and stanford mit. So then we have to ask ourselves well. These are iconic jobs in in certain social classes but are they really the best jobs out there for any given twenty two year old. I don't think so. Before the pandemic we knew there was a skills gap in the united states. We were at full employment yet. We had millions of americans who are not making enough money to support themselves. We had people who had jobs but good enough jobs. But you hear people making that argument saying you cannot afford to support yourself and your family working in a fast food restaurant but that job was never intended for someone who has a family to support. Is there an opportunity to actually create a real jobs program. A skills retraining program so it's not just about raising minimum wage. It's about retraining. People to qualify themselves for better higher paying jobs yes and that infrastructure already exists we can use the community college infrastructure to provide that skills training but we also have a shortage of qualified instructors to teach some of these skills. Why because the skills are so in demand that the people who would be doing the instructing are making five times as much money being actual practitioners. If you're a master plumber. You're not going to spend twenty hours a week teaching at a community college even though it would be a service to the community if you are a welder with twenty five years of experience right same thing is true. So how are we going to create the budget that allows for more people to be pushed through rigorous training programs. And so we need to do more I think from a state perspective and from a federal perspective not just provides the money but also to ensure equity and access to these programs
Navigating the Maze of Paying for College
"My colleague ron lieber joins us now. He is a personal finance columnist for the times and his latest book is called the price you pay for college an entirely new roadmap for the biggest financial decision. Your family will ever make ron. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. i you know. I had trouble reading that that subtitle. Because i am. I am one of those families This biggest financial decision that i will ever make. This is a big subject. Well i mean why not call it what it is right. I mean looms incredibly large not just because the list prices are so high but also because of the emotional component of the decision right. These are our children that we've invested a lot in both financially and emotionally and we're about to send them off into the world and the enormity is not to be underestimated especially emotionally but is the enormity we sort of put on the idea of college. Are we misplacing our priorities. When we think that college sort of equated with our children's future. I think it depends on who you are. And how much privilege coming to the table with me. And you're a new york times columnist and you went to a selective school and you are reasonably well networked. There's pretty good chance that your kid is going to be okay no matter what and no matter how you define okay whether it's income or friendship or connections or happiness in the world but if you're starting from someplace else right if you are from a low income background if you are a person of color. The school can make a sizable both difference in your trajectory. So it does depend on who you are. But i also understand why families who are more privileged than average get all caught up in the frenzy because it literally surrounds us in our communities in the media and certainly in the high schools you bring up an interesting point too about what the intended not just where you come from but what your purpose is what your intention is with regard to college. I mean some people see college as primarily a financial decision means to getting a job or career or even just getting by others see college and perhaps this is the the person of privilege viewpoint. As just a fundamental part of being an educated human being other people see it as a way to compensate for what they think was a shoddy secondary school education. Just kind of becoming reasonably well educated and then others of course it is like a fun way to spend four years should the way that you view college and its purpose influence how you view that investment yes and you hit each of the big three so i spent years asking people. What is Because you have to find that for yourself before you can go shopping for it and so there really are three components right people shop for an education right. They want their kids minds. Grown and minds blow number two. They go shopping for kinship. Right you're trying to find your people the people who will come to your wedding the people who will carry your casket the people who will hire you and also your mentors. The grown-ups who will influence you. And then the last part is the credential and people think about that in a couple different ways some people come to college because they are looking for you know the the basic degree that will allow them to grab hold of the middle class and hang on for dear life right so maybe they're coming from a low income background. They want to become a teacher. They want to become an account. They want to become a nurse. Know relatively recession proof jobs and then there are people who are reaching for the sort of gold nameplates. They want doors open to them. That might not be otherwise. And if they're already from a privileged background they're already part of a fancy alumni network. They don't want their children to you know downgrade in access or privileges and so they strive for it all right for people who are not conversant in the three numbers five to nine busily worrying about this. Let's just give a sense of. What does college costs. What is the cost in america of an average public school education and an average private school education right now well from the perspective of parents. We often use rice with cost rates that there's the net price or i'm sorry. There's a list price right so the list price at the most expensive private colleges and universities right now is over three hundred thousand dollars for four years and that's after taxes by the way right does that include like food and textbook. That's everything all in. Yeah at a flagship state universities. You may pay more than one hundred thousand dollars for four years. And that's if you can get through in four years and plenty of people cannot but the net price is something different. What's going on behind the scenes. Now is that there is not just the financial aid system of old where discounts were based. On what you earned what you had right so called need basting. There's also an entirely new parallel track of financial aid known as merit aid where people are given discounts for all sorts of reasons. Maybe because you're a good student or a good leader or maybe it's because the institution is in a market segment where just no longer has much pricing power. Maybe because everybody around it is discounting her because parents who have the ability to pay are no longer willing to pay for that particular institution so it's kind of unpredictable.
"lieber" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"Jeff say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know hey, what's up fire nation? Jeff Lieber and yeah let's see. I. Guess Back in two thousand fourteen kind of a funny story is I was working at nine to find nine to five job and what happened was is I was had that entrepreneurial bug I've been listening to podcasts like yours and other people. Knows you know looking at different business models and then I stumbled upon the Amazon business model at that time and I learned like the steps to source of product and all you're choosing what product to get started with and out of all the products in the world I was what would be the coolest sexiest product I could bragged my friends about and of all the products under the Sun I chose to buy a twenty foot. Container of Puppy pee pads or training dogs A. Matt and I spent almost like seventy percent of my life savings fifteen grand at the time on that container wired it to China had no idea the risks that were involved with that and luckily they did ship me a container of way too many puppy pads to sell and. Took me about a year to sell through that container. Thank goodness. It worked out and survived. So well, if they were on the market a few months ago I would have bought one Gaza we do have a a new puppy.
The Amazon Formula To Sell 8-Figures & Beyond with Jeff Lieber

So well, if they were on the market a few months ago I would have bought one Gaza we do have a a new puppy in our life is name as gas and we love him dearly and he has needed some pads as he's learned how to get to house train but I'm happy to say where we're past that stage for the most part now knock on wood but in fire. Nation as I shared in the introduction, we're talking about the Amazon formula to sell eight figures and beyond. So I mean you had that nine to five. Jeff. Back in two, thousand, fourteen, he decided to take the leap. So when exactly did you get started selling products on Amazon? I. Mean I know you said you start with a puppy pads move onto the next point from that and how did that experience actually lead you to starting turnkey product management? Yes. Of intention was not to start turnkey. Product management that came a few years later. So luckily, like I said that product ended up selling decently well, but I ended up launching additional pet products and then my sister had an idea for baby products brands. So we launched that and my friend's dad had an idea for with an awesome patented dog toy. So we launched on kickstarter and Bernard up on that and then So all of a sudden I was doing a ton of stuff and then had a few friends from college who Had Awesome products. They did you know sunglasses and wash on kickstarter and we're doing awesome on shop and sales channels like that. But they were struggling on Amazon and they saw me having success with Elaine product like bubby bads and they're like, why can't we do that? So I I ended up helping them and they just said, can you just manage it for us? Can you just do it what will pay you and I was like sure and so that was really the first consulting client. But. It was just a friend and it was fun. You know working with them and ended up growing them to over six figures in their first year and then they referred a friend and they referred a friend and now I had five clients as well in addition to all the brands. So needless to say I was. Almost envious of my previous nine to five job that I had quit because I couldn't do it all and I was like man, why did I even quit I'm like so stressed out in overwhelmed in managing way too much stuff and so I just said what what really would make me the happiest and what am I the best that and that was selling on Amazon. So what I did was decided to sell my stakes out of all may their companies in about nine month period and solely went in all in on turnkey product management gave it an official name and That was about three or four years ago and built a team hired me on my sister, my cousin, a bunch of great great people along the way, and now we're helping a lot of companies to scale their their businesses on Amazon seven and eight figures, and beyond
"lieber" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"Until they bleed coming clean in the dirty world of Blues and rock and Roll Josh. Welcome Welcome Welcome to Dallas and where am I talking to what city I'm in Austin Texas? So it's all talk says episode right now. All. That's right but we're not GONNA be talking about Texas. We're GONNA be talking about mostly new. York and we're going to be talking a LOT OF FIFTIES, R&B and Rock and roll. This is a great book. It's an anthology collection of pieces you had written. Over a period of time for various publications but it's got a nice matic connectivity and it leads off with an extended piece on. Jerry. Lieber. Famous for being one half of Labor installer not just one of the great songwriting teams in rock and roll in American history. But the first guys to ever get the billing record producer tons a bullet about that. Well you say you know one half. Jerry Lieber being one half. Lebron. Install it on my God, what a half he was and. He might even be you might even be seventy five percent to that matter because the songs that Lieber installer wrote, which everybody in the world knows our lyric driven And the title of record producer came about. I. Think he came about approximately nineteen. Let's say nine, hundred, Fifty, eight during A. A meeting that Lieber Install River installer been producing hit records for Atlantic. The Great are and be studio the nineteen fifties and they wanted something they were doing the whole productions they were writing new records they were they were in the studio conducting the the the. The musicians and singing out the parts and putting everything together including sound effects like machine guns and. Cars and freight trains and stuff that it never really been done on. Well, maybe Spike Jones did some of it but a lot of things that had never been done on recording and they wanted a little extra credit a little extra money from Atlantic records and they just produced a couple of coasters hits. So they sat down with Jerry Wexler the coal, the CO president of Atlantic records, and they banged out a new contract and Wexler was asking them. Well, if you want more money and you want another credit on the records, what do you want it to be called? What? What are you? The Command Command Dance? You the what are you the director like easily beat the mail or something what do you Wanna be called and they said, well, how about producer? So. The rest is history accused. The, rest is history. ALANTIC records accused them of being lustful and greedy for wanting more credit on a on a record. Such thing you'd never been asked for before they always this term called music supervisor that you'd see on records in the fifties. which was the equivalent of a producer but that was usually just the guy was a traffic cop you know waiting the musicians in and out. So Lieber installer became the first credited producers in music history, and thus the term, the dubious turn producer. Nobody. Knows exactly what a music producer does and needed the most music producers. But the work speaks for itself and you mentioned the coasters where they worked together with the coasters on heads like Yakima Yak Charlie Brown. Searching so many. EPIC hits. And like you said, they were lyric driven. They were basically you know two and a half minute playlets that hold playlets. told the whole story and I do have to put a shout out for Mitch Miller his kind of an obsession of mine on this show the producer although was it called that he was the head of a and R for Columbia and he had pioneered a lot of this stuff in their early fifties. It was just it was for stuff like how much is that dog in the window? So, I didn't have any you know real rock and roll connection Labor and solid. Took that baton. Be Without, Mitch Miller and without how much is that Doggie in the window By the way in the other room in case senior dog bar. Yeah. That was the Anti Ryan Role. Let's. That's the whole reason we needed rock and roll of How much is that Doggie in the window which represented ninety? Eight percent of all music that you would hear in toll rock and roll started coming on the Airways and had what did a couple of guys like Labor installer who had Jewish kids coming out of high school in Los Angeles? How did they become such big players in the NBC? Well. They started it or not. They actually started writing ditch lose records for Jimmy Witherspoon and people like and big Joe Turner and when they were seventeen years old in the nineteen, fifty, two Jewish kids in Los. Angeles, you imagine something more freaky and more unusual. They would be the only two Jewish kids the only white practically in the world writing records for black artists and at a time when they starting at the beginning when they were seventeen, which is an anomaly, it's unprecedented. what would that be? The equivalent would be like now I mean they were like to ghetto kids To black ghetto kids right now who started writing records and Yiddish in they started becoming hits and became like overtook the music that would be the equivalent of something like that. That's how unusual that was that time. Jerry Lieber himself work. In. At Clinton's cafeteria in Los, Angeles just as a dishwasher and the you know the cook who was next to him used to listen to his show. called. The Hunter Hunter handcocks Harlem Matinee, which was A. An ARIN. Show to the left of the dial, which is where blues stations were than. They were very hard to pick up at the very left dial on the radio and it was black music four black people that know white people listen to I. Mean.

"lieber" Discussed on Pantheon
"Until they bleed coming clean in the dirty world of Blues and rock and Roll Josh Welcome. Welcome Welcome to Dallas and where am I talking to what city I'm in Austin Texas so it's all talk says episode right now. All the. That's right but we're not gonNA talking about Texas we're GONNA be talking about mostly New York and we're going to be talking a LOT OF FIFTIES R&B and Rock and roll. This is a great book. It's an anthology collection of pieces you had written over a period of time for various publications, but it's got a nice demotic connectivity and it leads off with an extended piece on Jerry. Lieber famous for being one half of Labor installer not just one of the great songwriting teams in rock and roll in American history. But the first guys to ever get the billing record producer tons a bullet about that. Well, you say you know one half Jerry Lieber being one half Lebron install put on my God what a half he was and He might even be you might even be seventy five percent to that matter because the songs that Lieber installer wrote, which everybody in the world knows our lyric driven And the title of record producer came about. I. Think he came about approximately nineteen. Let's say thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight during A. A meeting that Lieber Install River installer been producing hit records for Atlantic. The Great. are and be studio the nineteen fifties and they wanted something they were doing the whole productions they were writing new records they were they were in the studio conducting the the the. The musicians and singing out the parts and putting everything together including sound effects like machine guns and. Cars and freight trains and stuff that it never really been done on. Well, maybe Spike Jones did some of it but a lot of things that had never been done on recording and they wanted a little extra credit a little extra money from Atlantic records and they just produced a couple of coasters hits. So they sat down with Jerry Wexler the coal, the CO president of Atlantic records, and they banged out a new contract and Wexler, was asking them. Well, if you want more money and you want another credit on the records, what do you want it to be called? What? What are you? The Command Command Dance? You the what are you the director like easily beat the mail or something? What do you Wanna be called and they said, well, how about producer? So. The rest is history accused. The rest is history. ALANTIC records accused them of being lustful and greedy for wanting more credit on a on a record. Such thing you'd never been asked for before they always this term called music supervisor that you'd see on records in the fifties. which was the equivalent of a producer but that was usually just the guy was a traffic cop you know waiting the musicians in and out. So. Lieber installer became the first credited producers in music history and thus the term the dubious turn producer. Nobody knows exactly what a music producer does and needed the most music producers. But the work speaks for itself and you mentioned the coasters where they worked together with the coasters on heads like Yakima Yak. Charlie Brown. Searching so many. EPIC hits. And like you said, they were lyric driven. They were basically you know two and a half minute playlets that whole playlets. told the whole story and I do have to put a shout out for Mitch Miller, his kind of an obsession of mine on this show the producer was it called that he was the head of a and R for Columbia, and he had pioneered a lot of this stuff in their early fifties. It was just it was for stuff like how much that in the window? So, I didn't have any. You know real rock and roll connection Labor and solid. Took that baton. Be Without Mitch Miller and without how much is that Doggie? In the window By the way in the other room in case a bar. Yeah that was the anti riot role. Let's that's the whole reason we needed rock and roll of How much is that? Doggie in the window which represented ninety. Eight percent of all music that you would hear in toll rock and roll started coming on the Airways and had what did a couple of guys like Labor installer who had Jewish kids coming out of high school in Los Angeles? How did they become such big players in the NBC? Well they started it or not. They actually started writing ditch lose records for Jimmy Witherspoon and people like and big. Joe. Turner and when they were seventeen years old in the nineteen fifty two Jewish kids in Los Angeles you imagine something more freaky and more unusual. They would be the only two Jewish kids the only white practically in the world writing records for black artists and at a time when they starting at the beginning when they were seventeen, which is an anomaly, it's unprecedented. what would that be? The equivalent would be like now I mean they were like to ghetto kids To black ghetto kids right now who started writing records and yet Asian they started becoming hits and became like overtook the music that would be the equivalent of something like that. That's how unusual that was that time. Jerry Lieber himself work. In at Clinton's cafeteria in Los Angeles, just as a dishwasher and the you know the cook who was next to him used to listen to his show. Called the Hunter Hunter handcocks. Harlem Matinee which was A. An, Arin. Show to the left of the dial, which is where blues stations were than.

Fifteen. Were Amos Milburn's bad bad whiskey which still is fucking I don't know if I can say. Okay. Anybody could to me it sounds like it should be hit right now. bad bad, whiskey. and Jimmy weatherspoon's ain't no business like ain't no business of. What was the Sino no business but my own changed his life and he was learning it from the black the fellow cooks and black dishwashers Clifton cafeteria, and he started keeping a notebook as writing his own lyrics. and.

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

"lieber" Discussed on Amazing FBA
"Which is great day themselves are getting back to normal, which is really awesome, but one thing I will say is there isn't a slowdown, so yes, you're getting back to work. Yes, people are getting out there. There going shopping everything like that, but we haven't seen a slowdown on Amazon. So what that tells me is that people most likely did invest in those Amazon prime accounts. Maybe they didn't have before. They're more rely on on. The probably were before all this happened, and that's not going to change if anything, it's probably about to get a lot bigger just as people adjust to. This new normal is what we're really seeing here. Very interesting a spike to chocolate Jason Somerville. who used to work in, wall? Wall Street, so you should look at various the bigger economic picture, and they mergers and acquisitions advisor, so they sell their businesses to private equity, so that very much aware of what the smart money is doing, and this one is very keen on e commerce business, 'cause He said the okay. That was a massive spike and adoption of e commerce has percents of retail across the globe and Trina America I think in UK, even bigger percentage small country, so it's not hard to ship goods around. Meeting is going to be sticking that even when things about to normal whatever that means and he thinks that he forty percent of that will stick and I guess depends how you define the word normal right because we're back to what you'll find is the new way I guess you got weird. Social distancing in in cues, certain places on open yet. There's a nervousness in the air. Particularly I think with the disrespect for the come to the US and the UK have POPs, not had the best crisis compared to countries like Germany, so there's probably a degree of nervousness there and. And so, What's interesting is the degree to wish. Commerce is new gains of land. If you like a a robust and a steak, so what you're saying sort of reinforces that picture. That's very very interesting, so we'll have to maybe get you back in three months and see what's going on that, so this is all going to be hostage to fortune. So tell me about particularly categories then because obviously ECOMMERCE has.
"lieber" Discussed on The Last American Vagabond
"Been touching on what my show is continuing to kind of press in this weird this crossover from you mentioned Dershowitz Epstein Harvard General Nanotechnology Bill Gates the Israeli government. There's this weird overlap between all of this. You just mentioned black rock which essentially we should remember as we talked about on the show basically took over the US Treasury which is a obviously Israeli tied company. There's so many things being happening here but the last point that I want to touch and I really hope that the crowd there can help us really figure out what exactly we're looking at. Here's the tie with yet again. Charles Lieber which I found very interesting. You mentioned his interest. Interestingly tied to the person that you were just talking about and this is something that maybe you can touch on for me explain what those connections are and I just. I'm just baffled how we continue to scratch and continue to find this. Really Weird behind the scenes crossover which I think paints the picture of like an entirely different narrative of what really happened and what we're being told today is a cover up in certain so Cobra told me about that will bring up that page just to see guys can remember who lever for those that might not have seen. Here's the guy we were talking about so go ahead right so I mentioned earlier. How Robert Langer was you know? Tied into the Mit Media Lab Epstein was funding with denigrate. Any trouble the guy that got in trouble was the other guy. Joi Ito that had to like you know was asked to resign. And all this stuff but Leonard into getting a flak for that right. Well another guy. That langer collaborated with on several occasions. Is Charles Lieber and they collaborated on some of these. He now Chinese linked studies. That Lieber is under fire four right apparently because of his arrest by the Department of Justice but nothing happened langer. I think that's very interesting. and I there's some links that I that I over about how you know. Some of the studies some of the things they researched together. Uh specifically these on cyborg tissues and things like that. The these nanotechnology things that are getting a big boost. Because of coronavirus Are are now sort of you know. Reemerging in becoming prominent but Labor was developed. A lot of the stuff with Langer and as I pointed out earlier a lot of the CO developers of the tax technologies with Langer. Then go into business with Langer. And they set these companies right where they're on the boards and they have all the stake in it and they make all this money like Leonard Did with Madeira. He did with You know this Biotech company that's partnered with Tiba among other ones but on Lieber in Langer don't have a company together but they did co create technology together. So I I kind of pushed a speculate. That maybe a motivation for levers arrest since we know that the Department of Justice is fabulously corrupt. Right and probably. It'll tear your motive for arresting. Lieber has to deal with the fact that there was some disagreement about the money. When it came to the patents. In how this technology would be used going forward because like I said Lieber and in Langer research a lot of things together in one of the things they research together on involved a massive team of Chinese scientists connected with the Chinese government. Right Remember Lieber is under fire for ties to a Wuhan University not disclosing that in all of this stuff. Why hasn't anyone talked about Langer's ties? There's another gates funded guy at Harvard. We will be talking about the future report so I don't want to name drop whom was also time to obscene and he has a spinoff biotech company and all of those investors are from China. But there that he he hasn't been in. You know in trouble gotten in trouble for that and he teaches at the same university. Lieber was at and has all these conflicts of interests. You could argue with you know China but only lieber goes to prison right. I think it's very interesting and I definitely think We're getting closer to figuring out what really happened but still kind of hard to know. They're it's the same reason you'd see someone like Catholic who will continually find his way in and out of public office and continually be an my opinion proven to have committed crimes and nothing happens. In in fact he continues to get promoted right so same kind of year. Lieber seems to be it would appear to be Straw man in some way like the guy that's taking the fall here while he was working on. Or maybe it's more. Maybe something's more going on behind the scenes. Maybe he was removed from the situation. Because I mean think about this. I thought this the other day you got people like Dr Issue from Japan that they took for. You know the guy that was working on you know the most disgusting human experimentation in regard to bio manipulation bio you know war testing. This is the guy they took from Japan after World War. Two and put him to work right. It took the Nazi scientists work. So why would they arrest this guy working on the thing? He this guy's like leading scientists nanotechnology and be like. Oh you're doing something bad with a bad group we're going to rest you more likely. They're gonNA take him and say now. We're putting you to work for us in the same way. That historically with this government does but I just find it absolutely ridiculous that we can see this crossover between all the same people were literally working on exactly what they're trying to drive in because of corona virus and ties back to the very person that's kind of the Lynch pin of this argument that there's some kind of Chinese effort to attack us with something or mean it just it doesn't make sense and then again into the idea about what they were? Actually working on the idea of nanotechnology like virus. Size kind of things. Where possibly we're talking about is some kind of nanotechnology experiment right now. Why wouldn't we consider something like that if they're going back to this page if they're literally working on the idea of stuff like this putting things inside of viruses could that and we know that nanotechnology is the idea of driving? Something from the outside right using this to create an action. Create an agenda create. Something an outcome so could this be something we're staring at. Now that this was an experiment that went awry or that was released or used that this is really just something other than a virus. I mean why. Can't we ask these questions today with everything we're staring you know and I'm not asking you? I'm just saying you know out there. Everybody we should be willing to discuss these but so based on this before we jump on a couple more things before we love thought maybe one thing before I let you go. What do you see from this right? Like what what are you taking away from this in from Lieber to to langer to all of them to to the whole thing like what are you right so with Lieber specifically. I think I'm starting to think the reason. He was arrested. Because of a disagreement about how these technologies would be like spun off and privatize. And how much how much profit he would get and things like that. I think it likely has to do with that. Especially considering like someone like Langer when he co Co billups these technologies and takes them to market. The person he developed with Makes THE COMPANY WITH. He didn't do that with Labor. But these technologies are still being implemented. It's kind of interesting on something. I forgot to mention to you. In terms of a lot of these technologies that Lieber and Langer Ben Researching is is of interest. Darpa has a lot of overlap with Darpa stuff and remember As I mentioned earlier. Lehner co-founded Madeiran MODERNA. Which is a strategic ally of Darpa and was a lot of its initial funding. Came from Darpa Right. So it's definitely worth pointing that out. There's a lot of confluence of all these different groups. I guess you could argue up a specific faction or whatever if you want That are all sort of trying to you. Know use this crisis to their benefit to put you know all of these things they'd been developing for years on whether it's you know the Smart City Angle on the technology angle or you know Just PRIVATIZE SCIENCE IN HEALTHCARE. And all the stuff mean it. It just looks like this. Is You know just being milked by this particular group of people which is not really that big but has a lot of influence and now on. They're the ones that set to gain and also stand to gain just one person a control over human life in general because of everything that's going on right now. Yeah very well put and I think we have to see and that's what's important to realize that we have to see that this is not just one thing. In my opinion there's a lot of multifaceted agendas being forced in around all this and like for instance just because we can see the Israeli government taking advantage of one situation. It doesn't mean everyone in every situation is involved in that you know like that's always important to think about one last thing to to point out here is. I had this. The the link to this guy's page and it's just the same kind of thing we're talking about here. This crossover tells acts the guy that we just you. Just mentioned in your in your report in regard to Madonna right the involved with all the Dec- it's crazy the crossover between all these people you find out that he's one of his interest is Harvard University which is not that crazy. But you just realize that. There's this crossover between all of them leading to Lieber to Ge- to Epstein right to all this and as your. There's something happening. Between all business reason. These people continually get caught. Committing crimes. Don't go to jail. There's there's an unelected power structure that's always existing behind the scenes and we. We really need to see that today. It's really important now before I know you have to get going. I wanted to mention one last thing here. Since we're talking about all this stuff today about all the things. They're trying to drive in and everything would trying to accomplish. We need to realize that right now the information that we're getting and that could be faulty right. People could be lying could be deceived but nonetheless the information we're getting from the same official sources they used to put us on lockdown. Are Now saying that we're dealing with something that is based on the data the same or not less than the flu which could get you censored for even uttering today but that is what the added showing us so you can see people die each day right. This is basic information cardiovascular disease forty eight thousand just go to the ones that are communicable right community. Yeah tell you pronounce that Communicable Lower Respiratory Infections? Seven thousand right and that's just that's and that's flew things like this and you come down here. You find out that between December thirty first and May Fifteenth Two Thousand. Per Day right off the bat about how crazy different. That is to just the flu right but then you can go to. May Eleventh Fifteenth so just a short period of time. The argument is went to four thousand and even April thirteenth to August the peak of deaths as seven thousand.
PSYCHOLOGY OF A PANDEMIC
"This is Alan Lieber Te. When we talk about what's happened we have to start with What we would call the global trauma that happened when the coronavirus started to change our experience in the world and from there we would go to what we call the global shock which was the shock that all of a sudden this is real and this is really happening in our lives are changing and then we moved from there to global grief which was a morning that we couldn't go and do the same things we used to do because we had stay at home stand shelter and all of a sudden thinks it changed and there was an unforeseen Element that was dangerous that we couldn't fight with an army or we couldn't fight in the other ways and so that has led to All of us having different different experience. Some what we're used to and that's called Angst. It's caused anxiety it's caused depression. It's caused a whole slew of different sort of symptoms in reaction to this sort of emotional haze that happens when you're experiencing grief in this sense were exploited experiencing grief and a global way as well because every time we look for answers or push back into the not knowing into the unknown of. What's the next steps are going to be I? I love the idea I mean. I don't love the idea but I'm intrigued by the way of a global trauma that you know. I mean obviously individuals experienced trauma. But this really in at least in my lifetime I mean I guess you could say wars and things like that but this is something. That's you know. Wars are specific to certain countries and certain specific areas. This this really is this. Pandemic has gone over the entire planet. That's right and so a sense. We're looking for solutions. Because we're a solution oriented and very resilient country but in this instance were dealing with something that is Making it more difficult for us to be resilient Because we don't have the ways in which to resolve this Sooner I think that's where a lot of the anger is coming from. A LOT OF THE GRIEF. Also people are really upset. Like what you know. There's we have to do something you know. There's there's a great line. Did you ever see the movie night of the living dead? Yes and the zombies. Come out of the grave and they're attacking this house in. This woman is freaking out in the house. And she says there's gotta be someone we can call it the funniest line in the movie because it was it was just great. And that's what it feels like. Don't you want just go. There's gotta be somebody we can call and I think that that is the element of that disconnect. 'cause there really isn't anyone to call at this point in time and we're watching the news or reading the paper watching the Internet and looking for a semblance of an answer that we can sort of build a framework around to understand and hopefully have some relief emotional relief from this. Some of the people I work with are experiencing nightmares anxiety. Depression of and all those issues along with PTSD and other sorts of psychological aspects are Becoming more pronounced because of this unforeseen issue is changing what they've known and most people what we've known which is you know. Were able to get NARCAN and go places. Visit with people go to places where we normally have our ritual of shopping or going to work and having meaningful relationships around interactions on yes been frustrated with traffic and other sorts of things but at this point in time all of of that stuff is kind of a wash because it's all different. It is really different. Like I haven't hugged anyone other than my wife and my daughter at my house in a couple of months. That's an odd thing and telling. My daughter went for a walk with her yesterday. And I said not only am I. Distancing myself from the other people walking. I don't even want to look in the eye and I noticed that I was looking away. It's like I was embarrassed that I was distancing myself from them like they. They were defective in some way. Because they might have this and I wasn't even sometimes I cannot go hello through my mask and I'm okay but yesterday I just couldn't even look at them beating feel a sort of angst of being home so much and not being able to start to continue in move out that inner resiliency that we have as a country as a population that the United States is embarked on always had. We're not really experienced that so much at this point I was wondering how many people When they're when they're home because your home and you've got a lot of hours in the day to fill in a in. A new way are are are. They becoming more introspective. Is it you know as it forcing people to be alone with their own thoughts which can be like really profound or also really unpleasant not just about the virus but just their own thoughts. It's like what's my life about. I would think you'd see a lot of people start to question. The basic tenants of their entire existence in some way. Because they have the time to do it. I think you're absolutely right because I think that from what I'm hearing people are looking at their lives and they're seeing that they're able to have a light but not necessarily do all the things run around. Do all the things that we used to do. there's a very famous psychiatrist. Psychotherapists Carl Young talked about the transcendent function of the personality. And we're sort of pushed into that place of having transcend our circumstances and we we have to look at it. Behooves us to look at? What are the things that are fulfilling us in the things that are are providing us with a nerd emotional nutrients and how much that will help us dealing with the present circumstances knowing that we just don't know so how do we connect meaning purpose? And what are the things that will help us Get THROUGH. This is really an important issue. It does seem like that. I mean I. I am sort of somebody that is able to spend a lot of time by myself and not feel like. I'm missing out on anything but I know there's quite a few people that don't live that way. Expe- you know it's like well. What distraction am I going to do next and I've got to go here and I'm busy this idea of being busy as an interesting concept because you when you're constantly busy and you've got this thing you know this idea of Maybe I don't even know if it's just accomplishment of just being busy sometimes it's just being busy to be distracted and not be present That it must create a lot of problems for people you know and you then now. You're seeing people protesting they can't they can't they can't they. Can't sit home. They're actually going a little nuts. It's like I you know when I see a sign of somebody. I need a haircut really that bad right. I cut my hair and I did a terrible job so I think you're bringing up a really good point which is after we are going through this global guilt immer also mirroring and having a parallel process with what's happening in the world. What happens is we ended up in this place of Anticipatory Reef and you made have lots of feelings about that with your children. In with your family you can feel lots of different things in terms of what the situation is and then how that gets played out in the family system.
Make Australia Gay Again
"Okay. Jeremy. So you found these stamps. They're clearly very gay What what's the deal like? Where do they come from? I've never heard of this Gay Kingdom what is it where is it and how can I move there? Are you messing with this? Jeremy is even a real thing. It's actually real and I've been working all day and night to find out more. I've called experts from the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations. I've made burner phones. My apartment's walls are covered and post it. Notes detailing epic story behind this kingdom yarn. Did you connect them John? It's GonNa ask the same thing. Yes it's required and after lots of law sleep. I think I finally have some answers. Hermit sexual people have honestly endeavoured everywhere to merge ourselves in the social life of surrounding communities and to be treated equally. This is an excerpt from the declaration of Independence of the gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the coral sea islands. A nation created for life liberty the pursuit of happiness. And all things gay well technically. It's a micro nation. So we'll micro nation is a place that declares that they are a nation but aren't recognized by other countries So it's basically someone walks out into their front yard and they're like my front yard is a nation In their mind they are their own country but they don't really have any recognition or any kind of Legitimacy in terms of the global stage this is Derrick Thomas. I tracked him down after he made fun video online about the gay and Lesbian Kingdom. I created a youtube channel. That has an ongoing series on micro nations and kind of the funny stuff that they get up to so there see land of land lower Malaysia. Lieber Land Danica in the Game Lesbian Kingdom of the Cross island. Derek told me that this gay kingdom was born in two thousand four when Australia passed a law saying that marriage was strictly between a man and a woman with gay marriage all the rage in America. The changes here a designed to thwart any similar attempts legal recognition. At Dav aside their community is facing a new wave way of homophobia. Here's John Howard. The prime minister at the time. The definition of marriage is something that should not a time potentially be subject to redefinition will change so in an attempt to protect against future gay marriages the law said marriage is by definition between a man and a woman and every single wedding ceremony in Australia. I kid you not that definition had to be like at your wedding you would need to say the words marriage. According to law in Australia is the Union of a man and a woman. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard in so romantic really but Derek said it actually kind of backfired and drew a lot more attention from activists about gay marriage than ever before Australia including one group in two thousand and four a group of gay rights activists who were attending the Brisbane. Gay Pride Festival Were frustrated with two thousand four marriage amendment act in Australia. They got on a boat. Well a seaplane That they christened the gay flower sailed it out to an island in the coral sea islands. Territory called CATO. Island planted a flag and said this is our country now Gay Marriage is legal. And that's kind of how the gain lesbian keenum of coral sea islands
Doctors Have Injected DNA-Editing CRISPR Into a Live Person's Eye
"Tell me why Chris so awesome. It's really cool because crisper. Is this really powerful? Gene editing technique that allows doctors to make really precise changes in our genetic code. And so it's got incredible potential for treating lots of diseases right. It is actually not an exaggeration to say that crisper could revolutionize medicine in future in today. You have brought us another crisper milestone yet. Mattie get this for the first time scientists have used crisper to try to editor Jean while the DNA is still inside the body which is wild because until now offer crisper treatments for things like cancer or sickle cell disease. Doctors had to remove the cells. They wanted to change. The patient's bodies edit them in the lab and then put them back in right for this time. Hopefully the editing will take place inside the I of a patient who is almost completely blind due to a genetic disease. Called Lieber Congenital Amoroso's the experimental treatment was done by doctors at the Casey Institute in Portland. Oregon. The hope is that the crisper will edit or fix the mutated gene that causes the disease and potentially restore the patients
Is Zion Living Up to the Hype for the Pelicans?
"Were in Dallas for the pelicans overtime loss to the Mavericks. Second night of a back to back for New Orleans obviously but we didn't see the Zion. We've sort of been spoiled by over the last month. So what did you get from Zion? On Wednesday night. I saw someone who had to go through a little bit of adversity. There's two different things working against him in that Dallas Game One. It was the first time he played on a back to back. You didn't see his legs under him. Early actually play but gets the block on Williamson Williamson. Took his time getting up court. You may be subbing out of the ball game here. He is drew and Lonzo Ball. We're GONNA come on up to him. Hey man you you're right you you tired. Are you going to play? You GotTa pick one. The other thing. Going against him was Dallas they started Maxi Kluber alongside of kristaps porzingis specifically for Zion Williamson two. That might have been forcing a psychotic burst that is just perfectly played deep that still by Dallas Cleveland's doing A. They went to the formula. That's been working. Which is the. We're GONNA get the tallest guy we have can defend him to do it. And then have another seven footer. Awesome plus footer at the Rim Ryan got blocked inside again. It's not possible in less. Cleber is being this physical and allowing time for kristaps ticket over there. Lieber six ten obviously porzingas seven three. Those have been the only really match ups that have given him problems when they played the box. Janas guarded him and then you have the Lopez twins behind him. Protecting the RIM defers Lakers game. Anthony Davis guarded him. And you had jovial and Dwight rim so that combination kind of went against his favor so walk me through a little bit of the process on the back to back portion of it because this is obviously part of the Adjustment For Zion. So where do you find the line? If you're the PELICANS in trying to get him experienced doing things like back to backs that he'll be asked to throughout his career and then also sort of adjusting him since he is still getting fresh on the court after an injury yeah so initially David Griffin the PELICANS executive vice president of basketball operations who should have a shorter title. It's a mouthful say every time I don't know I mean if you're going to have a title let's go big with it like if I'm going to have a business card the whole front of it's going to be my title and the backs. Just going to say fits. There's not not my first name. Just I'm pretty sure that's what his business card says. I haven't seen one but I'm pretty sure that's it has to read like that initially As I was coming back from the injury. Grif said he wasn't there. Were probably going to take it easy on back to backs. Now the good thing that kind of worked into their favor there was January. Twenty second was when he made his debut since then the Tuesday Wednesday back to back that they just had was the first time they had a back to back so they got to let him get games under his belt. He mentioned to his own Tuesday. You know I have to do the recovery if I want to perform the way that I'm capable of performing as you try to push for or is this your mutual agreement Little bit of both but I need a push for myself because I gotTa do the recovery of I want to be able to perform. We do every night with that. Being said coming off the knee injury there were reports that he was learning how to walk differently. How to run differently? I mean when they're watching him and they're monitoring and what are they looking for his indicators of his health very funny to me because I think George Sodano said that I think on ESPN broadcast and it just kind of blew up. He's learning how to walk and anybody who's been through physical therapy at any point that I for any sort of knee. Injuries foot injury. Whatever it is can tell you. They will relearn how to walk in physical therapy. The learning how to walk and run differently was more about little things in his gate that they wanted to fix. The biggest thing that they really wanted to correct at that time was how he landed when you go back and watch how he landed at. Duke with these huge one handed slam traffic. He's landing on one foot one of the big things you see. Now when he goes up for a dunk whether it's an alley whether he's just throwing it down to hands. He tries to land on two feet as much as possible. Zeile yeah that the to hand flush and a great entry fee for Lonzo Ball over Kunst buck to finish that would KUPA gotta be thinking. What in the world so. It's little things that maybe you don't know at nineteen years old that the Pelicans are trying to instill in him so they can take a little bit of stress off of his knees. The biggest thing you just said is nineteen if you listen to Zion. He'll make sure he tells you. He's nineteen in just about every other interview. I feel like I mean but doesn't right like we are so busy trying to make him either the savior of a lead. That doesn't need to be saved or the reason that we're over. Hyping somebody to the point that people ridicule how much we talk about it but you look at it at some point. Say this is a nineteen year old kid. We're talking about that is absolutely crushing in a limited sample size. So let's turn the tone positive here for a second you're looking at a nineteen year old kid. What he's doing is unprecedented right. It's absolutely unprecedented. Feel like every other night we were finding ways to start a sentence with Zion Williamson. Doing something and we ended it with Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neill or Tim Duncan or wilt. Chamberlain the goes on and on and on. And you're like that doesn't make sense.
Harvard Professor's Arrest Raises Questions About Scientific Openness
"So it's May of Twenty fifteen. And a researcher named Chichaou. Shing is at his home near Philadelphia. She is a physicist at Temple University who studies SUPERCONDUCTIVITY SPECIAL MATERIALS. That can sometimes lead electricity flow through them with no resistance. There's a ton of applications for it and all of a sudden there's a knock door very very loud and urgency rental open the learns Esau arm agents outside and pointing their guns to my wife and daughters into an Tokyo in Hong Cups and I had absolutely no idea why okay. So why was he arrested? Like what was going on what the. Us government accused him of sharing a special piece of equipment with researchers in China. But here's the thing he did. Do it prosecutors. Were confused because well it turns out. Superconducting technology is just really complicated. But what about the idea that he was helping? The Chinese developed superconducting technology. Just in general. Well Dr she says sure. He works with scientists in China all the time and sometimes he spent summers over there doing research with them. But as you know Mattie one of the basic pillars of fundamental research is openness nothing. He shared was classified or restricted in any way. Qadam ICK espionage. It's a contradiction me. Everything we are doing is fundamental research. There's nothing to steal can. Just sit there and read your paper and sure enough about six months after this whole thing starts. The charges are dropped against doctor she. The government admits he's done absolutely nothing. Wrong I mean honestly it sounds like he just had collaborators which is like a major thing in science unless there was some weird money. Thing being exchanged or going on this is what scientists do. Yeah I mean. They're technologies that are restricted for example stuff to do with rockets that could be used in missile development say. The government has very strict rules about sharing that kind of information but generally scientists open collaborations. Happened all over the world. The thing is China is getting a lot more scrutiny. These days so fast forward to twenty eighteen attorney general. Jeff sessions is really concerned about the theft of scientific knowledge and intellectual property by the Chinese so the Justice Department launches what it calls its China initiative the goal is to crack down on the transfer of US knowledge to China and in the academic community the focus. False really quickly. I'm one program in particular. It's called the thousand Talents Plan. So our understanding is that originally. The purpose of the thousand talents program was to reverse the brain drain. That's Michael Lower. He's deputy director of extramural research at the National Institutes of health. And he's the main guy at NIH dealing with thousand talents. When he says brain-drain an example of that is like scientists. Go abroad to study and then end up staying in whatever country instead of coming back home. Exactly the Chinese government wanted to bring back outstanding scientists to China so as to develop their science and technology and the way the Chinese government does is by offering money so researchers set up labs in China and they spend at least part of their year over there Doing their work in exchange for grants and expenses paid and the program grew pretty quickly to include non-chinese scientists as well right and I think there are these kinds of programs in other countries to yeah. It's not uncommon. Canada had something called the one hundred fifty research chairs. I mean. That's kind of the less ambitious Canadian equivalent. Chevy Sega but with lower says is the thousand talents program has gone too far in the real problem from his perspective is that in a number of cases researchers are not telling their home universities or the. Us government for that matter about Chinese funding and not disclosing that Chinese funding. That's what's actually against the law. Exactly the types of behaviors that we are seeing are not subtle or minor violations What we're seeing is really quite egregious and that brings us back to Charles Lieber. The Harvard Chemist We were talking about earlier. Who is arrested back in January the complaint alleges Doctor Lieber signed a contract with the Chinese University in Wuhan and was paid to fifty thousand dollars per month plus up to one hundred and fifty eight thousand dollars in living expenses and awarded more than one point five million dollars to set up a research lab at the Chinese school and work there on researching nanotechnology that is a lot of money. Jeff that is like ten post docs full of money. At least I love that. Your brain calculates prices in post is seen but the bottom line is. It is a lot of money in the criminal complaint. Alleges not only did he get all this money. Lieber lied about being part of the program to Harvard to the NIH in the Department of Defense. Which together we're also giving him many millions of dollars in research money. I should say Lieber attorneys declined to comment about this case. They didn't WanNa speak to me but Mike clower from the NIH says there's a larger pattern here other scientists have done the same and it's a real problem. Collaboration does not involve offshore offshore bank accounts. collaboration does involve undisclosed cash payments. It does not involve undisclosed employment agreements or undisclosed contracts. It does not involve double dipping. Where a person is being paid salary to work in China and to work in the United States at the same time several scientists and other institutions have been fired over this he says the NIH is currently investigating around one hundred eighty other scientists. He thinks this is a systemic problem. So if these cases involve lying failing to disclose information which we do know is against the law. Why are scientists doing this? It's a really interesting question and I don't have a great answer as I said. Liebers attorneys have declined to speak to me In other cases other scientists who've been fired don't talk to the press generally now lower says. In some cases the thousand talents contracts scientists sign actually come with a nondisclosure agreements. So they're actually told by the Chinese not to say anything which is illegal but there's also more going on I mean it may be then some cases they fear if they disclose money from the Chinese. They are going to get more scrutiny on their work and then something else to consider is the possibility of just plain old greed the criminal complaint against Charles Lieber alleges and I should say alleged here that he was receiving cash payments from the Chinese. That some of this money was just coming straight up cash. Okay so the sounds problematic for sure but is it espionage. Maybe I have like an outdated old timey spy version of espionage but it doesn't necessarily feel like that to me no I mean. It isn't really espionage. I think it's really important to say that. Lieber isn't technically being accused of espionage. The government this is about the money and I think it's very telling the US government's going after the money rather than transfers of technology like you remember that superconducting case earlier. It's really hard to tell of. Someone's doing something illegal when they're collaborating scientifically and that's also got some people wondering whether these sorts of cases really deserve criminal treatment so frank who is somebody I spoke to. He's a professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law and he tracks these espionage cases and says arresting people for issues around what they disclosed for their grants. It just feels heavy handed to him zone. The past if there was a problem somebody would talk to you. Maybe you would face disciplined from your employer but you wouldn't face being fired and going to prison and having your name dragged through the mud as a spy in fact the same day. Lieber was arrested the Justice Department announced the arrest of two Chinese nationals. They say had lied on visa. Applications and illegally transferred biological samples. These aren't exactly the same kind of case. But you know it's the same general flavor. It sounds like a lot of people who have been accused are Chinese nationals or ethnically Chinese. Does we think that racism plays a role in this well would midst. There are some real espionage cases that involve Chinese people and they have been convicted. But they're sort of larger tone around all this. It sounds very familiar to him. No matter how assimilated. You are no matter how much you think yourself. I'm an American just like any other American winner of Chinese background. There's that risk always that people will look at you and suspect you're actually communist agent now. I should say. Us officials categorically denied. This has anything to do with race. I interviewed Andrew Leveling the federal prosecutor. Who ARRESTED LIEBER? And he said this if it was the French governments that was attempting to steal. Us technology in a massive decadelong campaign. We'd look for French people. But it's not it's the Chinese government and he actually points to the Lieber case as an example of how they're willing to prosecute anyone they think is broken the law by lying but even if the government doesn't think it's racial profiling it's definitely having an effect on the Chinese research. Community your remember. Chichaou shing the researcher who was falsely accused that we talked about well. I asked him. Does he still work with colleagues? In China. The short answer is yes but the more Ah Longer answer. Is that to my research. Now is much much smaller than used to be. And that's because he doesn't want to apply for federal grants anymore. He's afraid he'll do something wrong so every time I do all this conflict of interest floor alright to all these Grant applications and check boxes and also I I I I shake I I. I'm scared that if anything I didn't do exactly accurately I could be in

Harvard professor charged with hiding China ties, payments
"Kelly a Harvard University professor has been charged with lying to federal authorities about his ties to the Chinese government the case against professor Charles Lieber is one of three tying to China that justice department officials announced today in Boston justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is here with more either all right SO three China related cases listed a Harvard professor first what we know about him so Charles lever is the chair of Harvard's chemistry and chemical biology department he's been at Harvard for around thirty years very prominent in his field he leads a research group at the university of focuses on nanotechnology so tiny technology in everything from biology and medicine to energy and computing officials say that since two thousand eight he has received more than fifteen million dollars in research grants from the US government so those would be for the national institutes of health and the defense department those funds require you to disclose any ties particular financial ties to foreign universities and foreign governments and so what's the case against him so the criminal complaint filed in Boston says that lever secretly signed a contract in two thousand eleven with a Chinese University to guide research at that institution he didn't tell Harvard about that he also allegedly signed on to be part of something known as China's thousand talents plan a US officials say that this is a a Chinese government program that is designed to essentially lure American researchers American scientists into sharing their expertise with China the complaint has copies of both of these agreements that lever allegedly entered into with China and he was well compensated by the Chinese for this the complaint says that he was paid up to fifty thousand dollars a month he got some a hundred and fifty thousand dollars per year in addition to that for living expenses more than a million dollars in funding for a lab in China now his current legal predicament though comes from allegedly line about all of this when asked about it by Pentagon investigators and the national institutes of health because remember grants from the Pentagon and N. I. H. require that you disclose collaboration with foreign researchers aren't we mentioned there are two other cases to other cases that the justice department announced both also related to China what details do we know about those so these are from the Boston area as well and they're both against Chinese nationals and one of them if the cases against a Chinese woman who is conducting research at Boston University the allegations against her include that you lied on her visa form a to hide the fact that she is a Chinese military officer the feds reviewed her electronic devices and found that she had done research on US military projects and was compiling information on to US scientists who specialized in robotics and computer science the other case is against a Chinese man who had been doing cancer cell research at a Boston Medical Center he was stopped at Logan airport back in December federal agents found twenty one vials of biological material squirreled away in a sock in his luggage he originally told agents he didn't have anything as bags later admitted that he was trying to take the vials to try not to do his own research wow alright so these three cases is it a coincidence that they were all announced at the same time as their bigger picture here well the bigger picture these cases involve nanotechnology robotics chemistry biomedical research the US attorney for Massachusetts and leveling said that this is not an accident or coincidence this is a small sample of Chinas ongoing campaign to siphon off American technology and know how for Chinese games so American officials are really trying to push back against what they say is the Chinese government's a relentless efforts to steal US intellectual property US research in trade secrets they say China is deliberately targeting high tech fields like the ones we talked about today they say China is using traditional intelligence officers but also businessman researchers and yes academics to try to get their hands on this stuff

"Is true across the last one hundred years of history and I thought someone will build the defining media company around on demand digital audio someone's going to do that and I think it would be really fun and I was I told my friend Graham who had been a mentor to me back in my radio career and he said Oh you should meet this other Guy Alex would you think about him when when he first met did you think this is it this is like a slam dunk I'm in was it not not quite that clear I mean this is the thing of like I feel like I already knew him because I had listened to his stories this is the thing about audio like when you and I'm sure you you've experienced this guy which is when you meet people they've they walk up to you like they're your friend and everything he was saying about like I'm excited about audio and I think it's underestimated and I WANNA do a business around that I was basically I just sat there in shook my head and said yes I think this is how the business could work and I think it could be really big and that sounds exciting and obviously let me know how I can help yeah it's a funny moment because really what I was looking for a CO founder but I didn't know founder yet and so there's a lot of some sort of weird dating thing that has to happen and as we started to talk more about like what would be helpful I think doc you suggested like why don't we business plan right I think I just started working on it basically like nights and weekends and sending you things and what kinds of as we create which was along the lines of what you're doing but also how they would get distributed who the partners would be and I was doing that not because I was like trying out to be your co founder that's the crazy thing and I was doing a lot of working so much work but I was the thing this is for me it was a it was fun and I would wake up in the morning just excited to do yeah I would get up in the morning and there early in the morning and there would be like multi-page Business Plan that Matt had somehow produced like and I was like Oh my God this is you know amazing and making a case that investors could actually get behind but did you Alex did you pretty much from the beginning when when started to Kinda help you out and just give you free advice do you think okay I think this is the guy or or you not quite there yet I wasn't quite there yet because I think we we didn't know each other at all yeah we had met like three times did we only meet three times when we know I mean by the time we signed we'd met more than three times by the time we actually signed an agreement but like I think around the Business Plan era right right we came over Matt we had an initial meeting sort of at my house where brought over some beers we drink beers and talked about like what was happening just a couple of startup Brazil Carr's hatching I did a bunch of I did some reference checking so I started calling around to people who had worked with Alex tint and it always still shocks me that you didn't do that for me at the time you didn't have a clue now you would never or someone without the blind referenced I I called a couple of people who work with them and and they're pretty consistent which is he's a brilliant brilliant editor incredibly supportive and then I had lunch with Adam Davidson your partner Adam is very direct person and here's also like Yeah Alex Oh like tenacious and you know doesn't back down and his really stubborn at actually all that turned out to be true like the four words to describe Alex are those brilliant storyteller stubborn control freak and I was like that's a that's those are some of the qualities you want to have installed the stage and what about you Alex Matt you didn't know him at all you just knew he had some experience that was in public radio and he had a business degree I had concerns about how we didn't know each other and I was I was worried about that and we're pretty different people I'm trying to think of like what are first meter conflict though oh I remember very clearly 'cause I 'cause I think this is before we agreed to owner this is going to sound very diabolical but I was like we have to have a fight so that we see how each other are going to interesting conduct ourselves in a situation with conflict and I kind of forced it yeah it was like nine pm we'd we'd both put our kids to bed and I came over your apartment and I think it was about it was our eternal fight which was you're saying this is we're just gonNa make up on podcasts like that's what we're GonNa do and I was saying first of all we're GONNA make more than a couple of podcast we're going to build a company and an organization in a culture and it's going to end up being really big and it's going to be whe more work than we're doing now and it's going to be incredibly hard and I think are underestimating that because for you you'd think you're just going to be able to do the same thing you did at planet money but do it a couple more times at actually the thing we're doing completely different so when you guys finally did decide to partner had come about well Alex did it as pardon startup so the final to discuss which we had put on the agenda for last time where we relationship going yeah checking in on it looking back I think you only felt comfortable having that conversation because you had the microphone and then that began a go she basically about what the partnership was going to be and I think I I think Alex originally you offered like ten to fifteen percent ownership right now I think I said in the ranger into ten I'm key to this success of the company and I wanNA feel I want to feel that that is reflected in cap table I guess there's a subtext to the I am key to the success of this company which is you are not at you meaning me and Matt was you were offended by this justifiably I would say I can't imagine doing this for the numbers that you're talking about I just can't imagine doing it because if it's ninety ten I'm like this and now it's a job and in a job I'm not gonNa like and then you and you're the boss I'm just not interested in and I don't think that will make the company succeed you guys tend to play out this negotiation in the podcast eventually met you come back you say let's split it then you say okay about fifty three forty seven Alex goes back you talk to your wife your wife is saying no it's too high finally agree on a sixty forty split this all out there for everyone to hear this is public all public and that was great though everybody was happy with that I was were you Yeah I was I was I was excited to just get started building the company and I felt that it was a being to get through that negotiation and get an agreement was it solidified our relationship and Alex that that entire time you were going back and forth with Matt like how confident were you about this idea that that this this is this company was even going to work you know what I think unlevel I knew it would work. I'm not a big risk taker not a serial entrepreneur it just felt so clear to me but of course I didn't know it was going to work right so of course you actually have anxieties and eventually I admitted to myself the possibility that like Oh this could not work out but it was by that point we were look for yours into it and it was definitely GonNa work out like it was already growing it was like it's funny and you know I looked when we eventually sold the company if I peel or posting a selection of all these very very first pictures of the very very first office the very very first months of that first office and the time I've been so.

Hey welcome back to how I built this I'm Gyros so it's two thousand fourteen and Alex Bloomberg is going to walk away not from one but from to plum jobs in public radio is GonNa do this to start a podcast company the something that at this point was not entirely proven concept so he decides to lay out his case on a podcast which calls startup here's a clip of it I love podcasts seemed like someone should come up with money to invest in making new shows as and come up with a theory about how could be profitable I kept waiting for someone to do that and then came this thought thought that's gotten a lot of people a lot of trouble the thought well I could do did you think you're GonNa do this by yourself was it was it the plan the beginning yes thought that was what I was going to do basically I was on my own millions of people listen to this American life and planet money at NPR and I didn't have any personal brand and so my big fear was like I figured I'd be able to like get a podcast together I just didn't know how anybody was gonNA know about US yeah so I had to do something that was going to attract attention to what we're doing and I figured like okay a guy recording self trying to start a company that'll be that'll be good it was like a marketing ploy doing an audio diary of like making this company are you meeting someone with money this is my wife Nazanin early one morning a couple months ago stopping me as I was on my way out the door to do something I'd never done before meet a guy who works at a venture capital firm try to get Give me money did did you in your mind a sense of how much time you had before you could no longer just survive off Nazanin 's income no I didn't by that point she was working at MSNBC Societa she was making a lot more than you make in public radio but it wasn't law young like we didn't have a ton of savings and I didn't drop my head a couple maybe like I don't know three or four months it's five months that was it Max and and I mean you were like in your apartment you had two kids at this point right now and you just without talking into your microphone yeah started anything I was doing I would mike myself doing it any meetings had set up I would tell the people ahead of time and Sunni Pakistan coming in like funny thing also making a podcast about it ha- come out with microphone and for the most part they were into like it was like you know it got me in the door and the certain way it was like it was unusual yeah you know if you're a VC you've seen seventy five gasoline people pitch you a different kind of like food delivery APP or something you know but you probably haven't seen people come with a full head Garin booth Mike recording it so if nothing else it was a novel all right so you leave planet money in March two thousand fourteen and would you go like just have meetings with with people at money would you just try to set up meetings after meeting yeah I would set up after meeting would reach out to everybody that I knew had been involved and you just meet somebody in the introduce somebody else may introduce you to somebody else and it's all like you know but ultimately became very clear like nobody was going to invest I could only tell half the story I can only tell the story of like here's the kind of things that I've made and here's and I'm GonNa just keep doing that and that wasn't that wasn't a business that wasn't a business and your pitch was I wanna make like Hbo of Audio Yeah I WanNa make really high quality who's GonNa be ad-supported maybe we'll sell style custer here everyone yeah no I feel like I would I would go out and it'd be pumped up and it'd be practicing over my pitch and I'd go out and do it and fly out somewhere and then I was one of like I don't know three four meetings that day and I was just one idea out of a million ideas and other people were pitching ideas that had proprietary software or you know like scientific breakthrough news and they'd been like part of a lab at Stanford and I was pitching podcast and company and I hadn't worked in a for profit companies since I was a bag here at a grocery store school and high school and I remember calling my wife I think we actually recorded these conversations when I called my wife after one of these things I think it was actually ended up being in a startup episode oh I'm feeling I'm feeling the same way I felt the last was out here I'm sitting there talking to the due to this guy and I'm describing something that feels like the biggest thing I've ever done like a escape L. beyond my wildest imaginings two minute I can't even tell if I could pull off and is totally not big enough team smart even when I was at the depths of depression and feeling small and stupid like what the hell have I done the fact that I was able to talk about it on tape I knew it was good tape so the more I failed is a wannabe entrepreneur the Mara was succeeding as a as a radio documentary producer and so there was something weirdly comfortable at that like at least all this work for nothing at least I'll have some document I mean startup really was fascinating to listen to this these like now iconic moments like a lot of startup fans will remember that moment when you're trying to pitch Gimblett to the investor Chris Sokha making a network of digital podcasts that we will monitor that that will that will there's GonNa meet sorry so what's it GonNa take it to do it so it'll take a million and a half dollars I think and she got the yeah they'll take a million and it was like that meeting that really should me how naive I was all the questions he asked I had no idea how to answer what's what's what's the exit with the what does that even mean it was like you know I give you money you build the company that having a get my money back when's your exit I know like what percentage to give them how did you even know how to accept the terms on the term sheet did you were you consulting with a lawyer did you just because those things are complicated but nobody was offering me money until I literally nobody I don't think anybody offered money until Madison teamed up I think when I was here by myself I didn't even get to that point so you come to this conclusion that you need a partner probably somebody with some experience business or maybe at least an MBA hey when did you meet when did you meet Matt I met Matt over the summer of twenty fourteen I believe and we were introduced by mutual friend and public radio and the story that I heard was that sort of like there's another guy running it all around town with sort of the same story talking about like how there's a business to be built in audio and he was sort of often his world doing the same thing during and so we finally met what Matt when you met Alex what what were you doing in the summer of twenty fourteen I had done my a and then and then become a management consultant at Boston Consulting Group which meant that I would go and work inside of large companies and help them develop growth strategies or solve problems or things like that but then I began to think about digital audio and I was listening to a lot of cast the time I thought every time a new medium comes about new media companies get built Oh and like why not me and I told a lot of people about this not that I was starting a company because Alex was much further advanced than I was but just like that would be exciting I think.

But show what what compelled you to write the book. You know? I get asked this a lot. And every time I get asked it. I give a different answer. I actually think that's much more refreshing. You might see it from a different perspective depending on the day. Right. I absolutely I wrote it initially thinking that there was going to be some sort of catharsis and getting the story down. And there would be, you know, an emotional healing go along with my with my physical recovery because I was still carrying a lot of this stuff around with me. I started writing I got hurt in September two thousand ten and I sat down to start writing the book at the end of twenty thirteen and in between had been gathering notes. And you know, I take notes his I had gotten hurt. I kept a journal and was just trying to figure out what kind of what kind of experience it would be to write a book. I'd never written one. I had no idea how to do it. So I just started pounding health thinking that this is going to be good for me. I I went away to a cabin in east of Pittsburgh, this remote dilapidated shack.

And it was disappointing in that sense. And I, but I did realize that there are just certain things you have to deal with and you have to incorporate them into who you are and you have to manage them and control them, and sometimes they get out of control, but you have to rein yourself back in.
