"Believe this but this isn't quite possibly one story. I've never talked about before. And you'll see why. But i wouldn't talk about diapers today. Ooh baby baby. And i'm not talking about like the kind i wear so i can p freely on trampoline love. Yeah you know what. I mean your. What are you gonna do jump from there into directly bathroom now. Used to climb down the works. I'm talking about diapers for babies. Just to be clear and bright. I know it's been a while but babies are those like cute little things that make gurgling sounds but have really underdeveloped underdeveloped perception right of course timeout easy to trick so easy. If you gonna trick somebody find a baby there so stupid. So we've all seen the family friendly masks that the gop wear so. It's really confusing. That they wouldn't have dealt with this problem then. We're talking about today. Which is a huge issue Just to be clear about what. The government doesn't do federal aid for people living below the poverty level which is one of nine women or over thirteen million women. Federal aid does not cover diapers. As a matter of fact you cannot buy diapers with food stamps. Wick which is a government program specifically designed to help infants and their parents nutrition does not cover them and neither does medicaid. That's insane but it's nothing covers diapers republicans i've never seen one republican standing outside croker handing a single parent with a with a baby a big stack of diapers out. And i'll tell you why this is disgusting and it won't be shocking at all. But it's disk gusting sure. The national diaper bank started this. Partisan discussing the primary to is disgusting. You'll know it when you hear it. The national diaper bank. Oh you do. Yeah i do i. What are the checking tears again. They have infant toddler elderly adult. There's nothing in the middle. Absolutely no young adult no did no young adult absolutely. Yeah absolutely why do they. Why do they why. It's kind of redundant to say elderly adult guy. I guess it's not yeah. I'm not elderly erin. But i'm an adults my god. Don't tell hollywood about this conversation. I'll be typecast forever. Have you removed your age for my md. I haven't done it deliberately. So i don't know if it's on there but i did they remove it all for everyone. I don't know i remember there. Was that like lawsuit a few years ago about that absolutely should be and also by the way. I don't give a fuck what the journalism standards are. You shouldn't put someone's age in a fucking article. I totally agree. Because it doesn't fucking matter it. Does it matters what i mean. It does matter. Shouldn't be like aaron gibson age. Sixty three love cats. My kind of gal all allies even my name. Not even my name have been fooling everyone for years. So republicans don't hear about this. They've watched is the national diaper bank. Also bank distributed one hundred and forty eight million diapers last year. That's twenty twenty massively larger Massively larger number that of diapers that they distributed in two thousand eighteen which was eighty four million. Which is still a lot of diapers. But you see the jump obviously with the code and the the job numbers and the fact that like now more people need diapers and this bank is like providing them. And here's a sentence. I never thought i would say a million years. Congratulations louisiana government for being ahead of the curve for once really. They just passed a law banning tax on diapers and tampons grades. Which is a small help to these single parents and really oftentimes too parents struggling to buy basic supplies for their their babies Okay which country is hostile as they are to abortion rights their if you're going to be against abortion you better have a fuck. This is where. I feel about everything right now. It's like do not come for me before you come for yourself. Thank you please come for yourself first before you come for me. Because if you're not out there hustling to get babies diapers but you're gonna stand in a fucking abortion clinic all day in scream at people for ex for exercising their right. Do you have no legs to stand on your fucking flamingo. And both those feeder out of the water at which is exactly. You're the kind of flamingo who doesn't stand on one foot every other glorious flamingo. You are the david blaine of fleming goes thank you. That's right broad fraud. Funny so funny. So the reason. And and by the way getting louisiana to repeal the tax on these things was a fucking nightmare for state rabs because republican lawmakers were upset and by the way didn't like hide behind any kind of like rhetoric or anything. They were light. But we're gonna lose it eleven million dollars from taxes. We're gonna lose eleven million dollars by the way governor brown the same shit in california when they tried to repeal the tampon tax. This yeah. I was like fine money another way. Yeah okay the only way to get tax money. Find money out of the way. These should never have been taxed in the first place. I no. You're making money off of people who are who can't afford to give you money. Yeah it's absolute so step your calls up okay. This is another joke. Isn't that funny erin. We're from texas not taxes that people from texas say now. I don't know i don't know i was just saying that joke with my the last thing i ever say on. Well it's all. I can think about like with all these celebrities who moved to texas. I'm like there's no state tax. Yeah we're we're all aware role aware all the states that you're like why do people move there have seatac yeah So the republicans obviously through tantrum. But this has this law barely passed. But i think it's it's very clear that the republicans only care about the tax base. That's all they care about. Whatever it is. Except for. I guess i i mean abortion. Same thing like they want more people. They want more people pay taxes..

"That that responded been dumped on them as individuals. We also see this in a lot of like nali as it. Oh it takes all the work for us. It reduces our income increases the gender pay gap up like those things suck in also unpaid labor especially of women of color and women have lower income a can lead to premature illicit death. When they're overworked over exhausted you might spend all day cleaning other people's houses and then you go home and you clean your own house and cook for your kids and the mount. The our amount of leisure hours that women have is a lot less than men especially in those lower income minority groups. So yes her chapter if you wanna learn more about the gdp side of it in the implications unlike the broader economy a- costlas resource to exploit is chapter. She goes into depth there but unbelievers a consistent theme especially when it's like. Oh this is such a problem. What is the answer. The answer was the labor woman. Yeah keep rolling along. Yeah like the entire economy in during kovin has rested squarely on the shoulders of mothers. Wake with Suddenly education child care and elder care in many cases were suddenly all on women's shoulders while they were trying to work fulltime and leg. That is madness. This isn't a direct quote but one of the things she said in the book was like universal child care might be the number one solution to like poverty in the gender pay gap. Like you don't require women to do all of the childcare. Have all the child care. Responsibilities women are freed up to work whenever. And wherever you know. It doesn't affect their employment status. Not only does it. Keep the women who were employed. Otherwise in the workforce it also employs more people as child caregivers have been paid roles which childcare is predominantly field worked by women and so as biden's proposal in his infrastructure plan for more childcare care available which leads to years a preschool or something something like that as like to me like a obvious yes has after like if we didn't already know childcare is important. We have all these educational markets that kids. Who have you know. Access to preschool. Kindergarten at younger ages develop quicker and have an easier time sometimes adjusting to school when they have those options available to them. Not only is it good for children. Also good for mothers and for families when it comes to employment and payment income. So it's really frustrating to me that it's like everyone's like is that infrastructure on the republican side like rethink about bridges and. I'm like okay infrastructures. Award became up for. We can expand the stephanie. After this pandemic haven't we all realised like. Hopefully you would hope more. People realize america's backup plan is just win. It's not any sort of social safety nets. One of the examples that was really frustrating was two different. Situations were very very similar. One was in brazil and one was in louisiana after hurricane katrina. Wear a where governments were building. Low income housing basically in brazil and louisiana government was building low income housing and they fail to take on paid labor into account and designed buildings and spaces that were at a really inconvenient location relative to wear a lot of people worked people mostly women and then also didn't take into account that a lot of the women who lived there were sort of co-parenting their kids like the you know. They relied on kind of the community of people that they lived around to wash their kids while they worked And that a lot of them looked after their elders and so needed to live in a similar place to them and so at least in brazil. The government like forcibly. They chose who was going to be moved into these new communities they were extremely isolated and separated and like people were distanced from their jobs from their families from their child care and like a lot of women lost their jobs because they had been moved to. This place was around like having a business in your home because you know it was illegal to set up a daycare in your home but that was the most convenient place for someone to watch the kids in their neighborhood. I really appreciated the example yet. I talked with women and did a lot of research to understand how women live their everyday life in a way that they had open floor apartments unit so that the mother can be like working in the kitchen Have her is on her kids. Who might be in another room and the open to an interior courtyard select. All the children have a play space. That's kind of incubated in away way. A lot of can'ts can have is on them. I think of my mom when we were kids. We have this big picture window that looked to the backyard and my parents renovated our groundfloor. One which is to open it up so the bigger space but to my mom could be in the kitchen and look out the picture window and see us. Playing outside am hit pool in the backyard to even more imperative that she like would see us if he were running around like fallen buller. Yeah yes something stupid captured quickly be out there. Yeah things are so crucial. Like if you're not gonna pay women to take care of older to raise children to children if you're gonna pay women to do it like at the very least don't make it impossible for them. You know Another fascinating one transportation. The way that Women's unpaid labor affects the way that we travel. Were more likely. You know like those running errands with your mom. He was like a tactical. I had a game plan like okay. So we're going to go in a big circle around town. We're gonna hit this shopping centre because this person needs this thing. I need to pick up this person's medication and it's only that pharmacy and then we're going to make this turn and we're going to go to this place because we need to get groceries and we need to pick up this person from this play and then we're gonna go over here and it was like a whole thing and that was a cure saturday.

"Power. Let me to scroll down here. House Senate and presidency By the end of his four years. I think I could be a writer and stranger things and that's from D in 312 area code. Well, D I think that there's a lot of men on that grassy knoll. No, I don't. I don't think it's conspiracy, but I am not. Conspiracy theorist. I just try to deal with fax even when they're uncomfortable. Lorenzo, however, has been very patient and used the same number. You did. 312591 89 100. Very patiently would like to tell me politely his opinion that he thinks this election was stolen Rig. So, Lorenzo, Go ahead, sir. And happy New Year. Happen either, too, as well. You always have a great show. I'm a lifelong Chicago Democrat. My dad was in the system. He worked the 1960 election. He chaired quite his death, how they're going to come against President Trump. They used the same game plan. They went against Kennedy. But what's going on right now? Is that when you have you know when you're totally in focused on integrity, If you believe in law and order, you're going to dig deep in that lead any stone unturned. When lot of these states that you know you have the same people counting the same votes over and over. You're going to get the same results. So with Lorenzo Yeah, let me just let me stop you there. Do you put any credence into the 55 plus lawsuits that the Trump campaign has lost? Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, among other places, Well, said the fact is when the message comes from the top judge. It says we're not gonna get involved. Every judge gets the message and you figure out a way to wiggle out. Be a coward. And not do what's right with the law. It's all down to what the law states. There's affidavit. If there's anything I agree with that, But I watched some of those hearings and they were ludicrous. I mean, Giuliani and the others. I mean they what they said in court was now what they presented to the public. They did that for political reasons, but I just think that you don't ask your question. Lorenzo has a fan of the president or his ideology, his his political efforts. You think if he was Maura likable, he would have won this election going away that he was his own worst enemy. The man that you know is likable. Saw softy will not be able to stand up to the D. C swamp. You think Ronald Reagan was a softie? Do you think Ronald Reagan was a softie? Ronald Reagan would not compare to what President Trump has gone through in the last four years. Right? Ronald Reagan. Uh, you know what? You're the guy from UK. Said. Well, you know what? When Reagan was around, Uh, journalists were journalists talk about Boris Johnson here. You're talking about Boris Johnson. No. We're talking about the guy from you, Kate Anderson Or whatever His name was. Robert. Oh, yeah. I'm sorry, okay? Yeah. I tried to find his article when I couldn't find his article, But perfect example. Uh, you know the way Reagan, you know, talk to the press the way Reagan talked to the voters. You know, Trump is not even near that level, but there's different laws. You know, the journalist in Chicago 11 of the biggest problems is what happened to investigative journalist Well, wait. We still have learned something, but you have to check out there's plenty of investigative journalists of somebody from the Washington Post and we know who were turned over the tape was one of the people on the call from Georgia wasn't tough story to break, obviously, But there's plenty of investigative Jordan journalists on both sides. But you have to do due diligence and kind of look around I our guests, By the way, it was a fine article. If you go to real clear politics dot com. I believe that's where I found it. So start there and you'll see the guest that we just had on last hour. About the walk. Society makes liars all of us out of all of us, but I think you'll like it. But like, I don't think the election was stolen. I thought the election was bungled. I thought the president wasted the largest single opportunity political opportunity of my lifetime when he started a screaming about crowd size four years ago, just stupidity and he never got of his own way. Thank you, Lorenzo. I appreciate your time. Thank you, sir. Thank you for calling. You're welcome back here any time. Let's squeeze in time and 312. Times gone. Okay, Sold. Dave is Dave here now days. That day's not hear. Tom's not here might have another text message, John. What about the Insurrection Act? Could Donald Trump used that? Okay, Stop it! Stop it. And this is why the 10 living former secretaries of defense. Posted and signed that letter saying Stop it! Stop it! Grow up! Put on your big boy pants. You lost. And its core. The Insurrection Act gives a President authority to send military and National Guard troops. I looked this up to quell local rebellions and violence, offering an exemption to prohibitions in the constitution against using our military to enforce domestic laws. Historically, it's only been used in certain moments. Extreme national strife, Civil war rise of the KKK. Labor disputes that went real violent. I think, including Reynolds Aluminum strike here in the city back in the thirties. Segregation battles sixties riding following MLK Junior's death, 60 Eight that was on. Lee once, however, hasn't been used in the wake of an election. And that was to stop the militia from seizing the Louisiana government on behalf of a former Confederate officer who lost the 18 72 governor's race..

"That made it easy for overseers or slave drivers or slave owners it made it easy for them to see the progress of insulate people as they were moving across the field everybody's lined up you can see how far everyone is moving so the positioning of the overseer is one of the things that north of highlights here right the positioning is really important overseers up on horseback and you can imagine like somebody who is standing ten feet tall and how much they could see as opposed to somebody who is five and a half or six feet tall right so overseers on horseback would literally see over watch over the work of enslaved people and overseers would use the whip to continue to compel inflate people to do this work right north of rights that the lashes is constantly moving all day long people are being with the sound of the lashes like a constant background noise for plantation labor so the labour of cotton shape inflate people's lives and at the same time the crop cotton reshaped the United States so cotton change the nation's geography and also chains it also changed the nation's economy we look at the slide and other contacts and I pointed out the early statehood of Louisiana eighteen twelve Mississippi and Alabama right this movement of people into what's now the Deep South right what was then called the old south west so we can see here like the movement of the nation into these spaces when we look at these maps we can think about other aspects of what's actually happening when the states are being created so these maps connect the movement of people to the movement or the expansion of cotton production so you can see two big things here the top map is eighteen twenty the bottom half is eighteen forty and each of the dots represent I think it was two thousand bales of cotton the two basic things right one eighteen forty there are a lot more data than there were in eighteen twenty there's a lot more cotton being produced as a nineteenth century was progressing and the other thing you can see is that the shift in where that production was happening it was being concentrated around the Mississippi River the production of cotton was moving into new spaces south and west as the nineteenth century progressed so the people and the work of cotton moved south and west of the nineteenth century progress so the map as representing cotton bales where these things are being produced right but implicit in this map right are the people who are forced to do the labor of producing cotton so each of these dots represent some dozens or hundreds or thousands of enslaved people moved into the south and into the west to produce this cotton so the map is a representation not only of the the movement of people across the country the movement of cotton production but also movement of enslavement right the transformation of the geography of slavery I mentioned few weeks back when we're talking about the late colonial period I mentioned that the slave population in North America by the late seventeen hundreds was experiencing a natural increase the population was going up even beyond the numbers of enslaved people who were being imported in eighteen oh eight the US banned the import of enslaved Africans through the Atlantic slave trade so legally there were not new insulate people being brought into the country but even after that the population continued to grow eighteen ten there are about one point one million slaves in the US in eighteen thirty there are about two million slaves in the US in eighteen forty there about two point five million so in the early eighteen hundreds massive numbers of these people were moved south and west and what historians have come to describe as the second middle passage and this is of course a reference to the you know the the main middle passage the first middle passage with which we talked about it transfer of people across the Atlantic Ocean in the bottoms of slave ships right twelve million people extracted from Africa and transported to the Americans the second it'll passage describes this movement massive movement of enslaved people into cotton producing territory so between eighteen hundred in eighteen sixty an estimated one million people were moved into these territories and so this is I contemporary image this kind of representing our is a representation of what was called a castle and this is in a critical term for us I don't know if you'll be able to read that actually so powerful is basically the term that was used for a group of inflate people chained together forced to walk over long distances right and this is a couple that was being moved from Virginia Tennessee so from the old tobacco producing regions of the country chiefly into new war spaces that were being intended for cultivating cotton and it's like a man named Charles ball describe what it was like to be part of a powerful as he was moving from Maryland to South Carolina so I think this this images is a is useful as a contemporary representation but this image actually I think gives us some more texture to see what it would have actually been like right Paul wrote this about being in a couple the women were tied together with a rope about the size of a bed cord which was tied like a holds around the neck of each but for the man a strong iron collar was closely fitted by means of a padlock round each of our necks a chain of iron about a hundred feet long was passed through the hassle of each padlock in addition to this we were handcuffed in pairs and so you can get a little bit of a better sense of the force connection of people in the same as you can see that these two guys in the front are chained together at the wrist and that this guy on the front right is chained by the ankle to people behind him and so this is on an obvious level like awful right people being bound together and forced to walk long distances to a new life in a different kind of enslavement but there are little things that I think you might not think about when you consider how difficult the situation would be so people are forced to walk all day and then at night they're forced to try to sleep but often there wasn't enough slack in a row or the chains to allow them to actually live down people were bound together in pairs and when one person needed to go to the bathroom they often had to stay bound to the person to whom they were changed right and so the the concept of privacy it's kind of a radic hated in some ways by the bonds of a couple so the second middle passage moves people in substantial numbers from the states of the upper south end of the east coast that upper south Maryland Virginia North Carolina Delaware a bit as well right into the Deep South into the cotton producing regions Mississippi Louisiana Alabama increasingly Texas as well right one of the interesting things in and really wanna terrifying prospect to think about a lot of people were moved over land but a number also transported overseas and so you can imagine people being born into a ship in Norfolk people who had heard stories from ancestors from older folks about the middle passage and then being put into a ship and not really knowing what was going to happen to them right not knowing what kind of experience they might have on that ship as it would sailed likely into a place like New Orleans so slave traders most of people who are sold in the second it'll passage were sold from states like Maryland Virginia slave traders would by people and leave them on a track or lead them on an ocean voyage with the goal of selling them to cotton planters it was like a middle passage I think illuminates and allows us to see some of the human realities of the growth of the system of slavery so there's an institution is growing in an institution that's expanding but we have to think about the marching of the people right the forced movement of individuals as slavery moved and expanded write the expansion of slavery was the movement of people so this was it another kind of power that slave owners exercise as well right slave owners had the power to move people to force them to do work in other places this is university of Maryland professor Christopher Bonner on the internet slave society so I've gotten is changing the geography of the United States it was also changing the nation's economy slave trading was part of this right slave trading was a big business in the nineteenth century there was slave trading firms in Baltimore and Richmond and here you see one in Alexandria that's being sort of inspected and photographed by union troops during the civil war slave trading firms in Baltimore in Richmond had connections with slave traders in places like New Orleans and mobile Alabama and so the south was being linked together by the business of of trading slaves of moving and slave people and the business of slave trading so this is an interior shot of this slave market essentially in jail right where people would be held waiting for sale in Alexandria the business of slave trading was part of a larger set of economic relationships and and I just want to highlight here on this money from Alabama how important slavery in cotton production work to the economy right inflate people were literally on the money in some parts of the south so with the business of slave trading became a part of a set of economic relationships that were bound to that were connected to cotton production and so this better relationships reach far beyond the U. S. south an example of this is the consolidated does the Asian consolidated association of planners a Louisiana just the APL as I will call it because that is a mouthful he was organized in eighteen twenty seven and essentially it was a bank it links cotton planners English investors and Louisiana government so what we're seeing here is basically a sketch of how this organization worked investors in England bought bonds from the C. apio is the a PO would loan money to slave owners in Louisiana as slave owners would put up land and slave people as collateral right so if they fail they might have to surrender a number of enslaved people to the bank label owners would use the cash that they got from the C. A. P. L. to live their daily lives right they would use it to buy land and slaves to buy cotton seed to buy a fancy velvet coat if that's what they wanted to do right it was a bank they could do whatever they wanted with this money re paying these loans when slave owners repay their loans.

"Are you know. That's what a lot of these companies live and die by you. Know those those postings in those do things and there have been a lot of cases where those social media accounts have gotten compromise and a lot of real damage has been done companies. You know vulgar posts like Gosh business. You know agreements being worked out over social media that are completely fraudulent. Things happen on a very much increasing basis. This and those accounts need to be protected as well as your core business accounts. Can I ask you to go back on one thing. What is multi factor authentication? And what is that. So multi factor authentication is a means of using something other than just a username and password to verify that a person who's logging into something that person so typically we have two factors using him in a password We want to add more factors so that would be something typically something you have in something you know so you know your password but you may also have some device or token that's going to help help you verify who you are these days the easiest way to do that is apple in your phone Google makes Microsoft makes an APP. I think facebook even has their own do it but to pair your phone or some of the device with authentication mechanism So that you have kind of an out of you've stink communication happening where the bag is not going to have your phone. Hopefully and you'll have that extra step that has to take into get into your account and it makes yes you affirm that that was me asking trying to get into this Bank account or whatever. Yeah okay fill in on this. I think you can hear me. You have a debit card. You use this all the time you have your physical card and then your pin number two who are two factors. I logged my bank account today and they had to send me text message because they did recognize by computer so that's another factor of authentication. Okay so we're all using it but we're not using it across all platforms and we we need to and we have so many devices. Most of us. You could have your ipad your phone your computer. Whatever else you know? I'm probably leaving out something. Everybody here has your Watch Watch watch. Yeah yeah and I don't use my watch like you. You guys probably do. I'll use it to count my steps and see I have a phone call coming in but yeah it's it's endless. Dan Lewis. So you're saying we should really have a seamless experience their attempt aware if we're doing something on an offbeat device. We're still going to have to confirm. Yes this says May and I was asking to get into my bank account or something. Yeah and it's getting easier all the time Security typically has been known as something that makes life life harder for people. We're getting to a point where you know. We're getting better at these things and we meaning the technology industry it's going to become easier But it's still it's important to take every step you can now The idea of a password log in is coming you know so we have those things now for some of our Microsoft accounts where you don't even even have to type your password because a password is really not a great form of identification. You know if you have devices you have biometrics meaning something something about your human being that can be measured in sent along then it can make the experience better than it was in the past and more secure cure. It's almost like James Bond using the I or the you know is that right like Yeah and and you know going now. We're future forward. Thinking but biometrics is something that's being considered how. How do we use this as an occasion? Oh some on windows computers now or apple phone. What's your face? I D you know how we can make security more secure while not being inconvenienced. So that's something. I'm bringing up the the older lawyer in me but I had this vision when you guys were talking. We always you know we still do. I like riding on a legal pad and my husband is very not tech savvy. He's awesome it what he does but he still likes. His paper will not do things online pretty much and I get it now. Because he's always thought it was insecure. But I was thinking as you were talking about a firewall because if we had a fire at the office and all the paper was gone all of our data it would be gone but I remember hearing about firewalls and that's a protective term of art. I guess but this is a whole different level. Yeah does traditional firewall thing. So you know we had a phone call to prepare for this and this is something that I was curious stories but anyway but why do people want to do this. Is this like the new Mafia. I think that's how I asked you guys. Sarah used a term of art. I didn't know about Cyber Cafe. That's that's very Islam. Yeah but I mean bringing down several notches. Why are people wanting to do this? Is this easier than robbing a bank. Like driving through with a pistol is this. Is this like the way we're going to be taken hostage now. It's it's easier and it's much harder to trace the with a bank robbery. You have pictures license plates you has you know some of the chase With cybercrime typically you're dealing with someone who's Third World country who we don't have I mean even if we could find them we don't have extra night we'd we'd be Kind of fighting a losing battle trying to attack it that way and the way that you know these people operate the way they are able to route over. The Internet makes them virtually virtually untraceable The way the payments you know happen if you when people do make the ransomware payments it's not traceable thing. The money is gone. You know there's there's no recalling holing leader Sarah known your bio reading this. Um You spent time studying in both Europe and South America to gain a better understanding of of security and conflicts from non US American perspectives. And then you ended up in Tel Aviv. I know for the same kind of stuff for terrorism but is this could could you kind of echo or expand on. I think that I you know as you said before you know. The Internet was built on convenience. You know so you know it's still very convenient to do cybercrime you know in your pyjamas in your bed Work you can achieve the same results You know and I also think the idea of you know extradition in the legal aspect which you could speak to you more than than we could but it's It's less risky in that regard too because you there's no there's very little cyber crime policy and procedure. There's no really extradition treaty for it and it. There's a very high reward with much less risk than into a bank with a gun and demanding money. Tim This is an area. I'm not real familiar with but I had called it. The black web mistakenly. We're getting ready for this but the dark web. I know your time in the Marines and other experiences. You've had I mean. There is a market Lord. This information right and that that market exists on on all levels from the small medium businesses. That we know we kind of You know act or have as clients rather To you know nation level threats you know there are state level actors out there who are using this this new cyberspace to conduct war essentially and in the same way that it's easier the stealing money online from someone as opposed to going rob a bank in person. Well it's a whole lot these years to steal information 'cause chaos and that cyberspace with that anonymity and would that remote access than it is fighting that battle role in person with with physical tools And and really kind of leads us to another issue is these attacks require so many and such high level resources to combat oftentimes these state level actors or these. You know higher up organizations nations suck up all the resources out of the room. When there's there's nothing left for any of the lower hanging fruit light small and medium-sized businesses? which is why we're seeing them? Attacked the frequency these days because not only are they an easier target. It's there aren't as many resources to help combat that and people really get away with what they did for sure absolutely now now when you were in the marines she worked as an intelligence analyst and reporter. Lynn was that. When were you in the Marines from two thousand eleven in two thousand sixteen okay? So it's very recently. Is that the way the military's gone. I mean is this. This is what spurred your interest more easily. Even while while I was in I saw you know cyber units stood up to to specifically To you know protect against cyberthreats their entire sections of the military that are dedicated to this cyber warfare. They'll never it'd be suited up going into their sitting at a desk going building in front of a computer and uniform fighting the fight. You know that that that's how I was majority of. The time was in a building like this in my uniform day to day doing work at a computer that was The digital side of warfare. Right what's her. Do you want to define since I brought up the terms cyber caliphate. Like what am I saying that right. Yeah Yeah so I can define it but we could have an hour long discussion. We may do that on this as well as other time. But it's it's really the idea of caliphate. which is you know and you know it? Islam govern state online so instead of terrorist organizations and non-state actors having to acquire land to achieve their outcome goals. They can conduct their warfare and conduct their space online online and achieve the exact same thing. That's wild so we probably need to do another show on that because I had things I wanted and to bring up and just even about how now governments you know Tim. We were talking about I. It was probably retail and banking and lately it's been government attacks and I know that you're talking more about international intrigue verses of saw on the news today or yesterday Pensacola got hacked. I mean Baltimore tomorrow was taken for a ride. The summer I think in May they may ended up being down. Our local Louisiana government Was a victim of ransomware somewhere just in the past month or so and it really. This is kind of what brought up this whole pot. PODCAST if people are interested we had State Representative Julia Emerson in one day and I said man I I know that own is down. She said that's what that's what's out there. But they couldn't do any constituent services because everything was tied up trying to bring up the whole system in a secure manner another attack but Anybody WANNA jump in. I mean it's it's it's everywhere we're seeing the state local governments being attacked wholesale. You know the entire country seeing it We hear about Louisiana because we're local but you know we've had several cities then state organizations just in the past month that fallen victim and There's a lot more going on like you said that we just. We don't know about as well that's not reported because either they don't have to report or they're able to contain it or you know they just being quiet about why they're having an outage But you know as as Sarah mentioned and you know. There's a lot of evidence that these are coming from state actors and and you know foreign governments who were just trying to disrupt our infrastructure and the US government mm-hmm and you know spends billions on security Your state local government doesn't have that kind of budget you know and they never have had a budget for cybersecurity and most companies don't l. most companies are looking at an. It budget maybe to buy a new computer next year like boxes to maintain what they have avenue..

We want to help them with that. Now and I could see like Something like a hospital all right. You know they WANNA get paid and over with as soon as possible because they have to worry about the state of course because folks was begin to sue if they don't right if any treatment is delayed or what have you. They're gonNA hold the hospital liable and of course you know all of the legislation that's in place that allows folks to be happy. You know speaking of states. A large urged number of city a state governments have been hit with Various rent somewheres. And that's been you know I'm not a fan of ransomware but if you're going to do it a state state computer is funnier than a non-state computer. I would agree that it's funny. I heard of a government organization that had fought it or was attempting to fight the ransomware infection. And like I mean they just basically allowed it to be and like tried to find work arounds for it and and it went on for years. Release Ring a bell. I think it was the city of Boston. That was at some point during this year. Targeted with ransomware and it just became a total mess where more than fifty percent of their computers were tipped replicating itself which is unusual behavior for ransomware. Usually it just gets on there. It changes your desktop to let you know how to pay them as a bunch of shortcuts. Everywhere encrypt your files and then it normally deletes itself and there's no actual all trace of the program itself because if it didn't then you could in theory reverse engineer the encryption key if you had a copy of the program I see well how's it. Delete itself honey. Where's it go like double deletes itself because the deletion just you know ends up well kind of there without You know some kind of Marker Kerr for to find it. I don't know okay as her to that. I'm not versed enough in it. I know they don't send it to the recycle them but with windows they also delete the shadow volume William Copies which is sort of a cl- restore -able clone image of your computer so that you can't do system restores and things like that. So I imagine getting harder Darren harder. Yeah these are some clever people. They are to give them credit where it's due. Evidently they've made hundreds of millions of dollars in the past years doing this. I'm not a fan of it. But you know again. The best way to protect yourself is to actually copier fouls onto a flash drive and disconnect to have often wondered like with the The crypto anarchy movements You know why there aren't more sort of overt the crypto attacks on things like state agencies. You mean like somewhere because I don't want crypto to be too closely tied with ransomware. You know it would be crypto attack. It would be a ransomware attack right right and that could just simply pay that wrestling with crypto but crypto has a lot of clean. What do you think about ransomware?
