Belarus Election: Svetlana Tikhanovskaya Flees Country Amid Protests
"The leader of the opposition in Belarus, Atlantic sky has fled the country to neighboring Lithuania following. Sunday's presidential election in Belarus protests have continued in the country following the election results in which the country's longstanding President Alexander Lukashenko claimed a landslide victory with some eighty percent of the vote. A result opposition claims was rigged Chris Show Max Fat Lana. Posted an emotional video to supporters explaining why she'd fled the country predominantly she said to ensure the safety in the well being of her children she ran for the presidency in place of her husband. Of course, Sergei T Shanansky who we know is in prisoner political charges in Belarus what's the latest reaction from other countries around batteries speed looking on at the fallout from the election on Sunday Chris well. The reaction has been one of, of course, criticism of the vote that took place and calling for calm in terms of how Belarus Belarus majorities should deal with protests. The European Union, which you know is argued be key of course, the EU and the US have criticized the vote but the E is is particularly key with Belarus being you know sort of between the European Union and Russia if you will. In terms of the spheres of influence, and there has been some talk of renewed sanctions from the EU. A lot of that sanctions talk interestingly is coming from Poland while the on another side neighbor Hungary's against sanctions. So it'll be interesting to see what kind of developments come from the EU in terms of what they can actually do to try and to try and influence anything that is happening in Belarus. The irony is that the EU actually lifted many of its sanctions back in two thousand sixteen ended asset freezes and travel bans against Lukashenko and about one hundred and seventy other people. The decision at that point looking back was actually unanimous among foreign ministers they cited improving relations. With Belarus although an arms embargo was still kept in place a certain amount of sanctions. So not everything was. Returned to normal. But there for the question now is could the e U reintroduced those kinds of sanctions that it had in the past on targeted individuals including Liquor Shaneco the question is whether this will really have any major effect was under Lukashenko has not been particularly interested in joining the e U along running sanctions already in place you know were put in place after the disappearance of opposition politicians way back at the turn of the Millennium gives you a sign of how long this has been. Has Been going on. so that you could try to react with further sanctions, but it has tended in some ways to see as in Russia's sphere of influence perhaps in terms of Russia. Putin was of course, quick to recognize the results. will be watching closely. You would imagine if anything near what amounts to a revolution starts to to come about in Belarus but the there has been also some talk from analysts saying, of course, they may favor a certain amount of instability if it helps to keep Belarus under wraps as it were an in Russia's sphere for the time being
Trump, Biden Campaigns Unveil Bold New Mouth Sounds
"There's just four months left until the twenty twenty election and both Democrats and Republicans are ramping up messaging to make their case to the American public. Before November third while many have already chosen their preferred candidate in this especially polarized political landscape, there are still millions of undecided voters waiting for more information on each side's coughs, hard swallows, Lips Max, and throat clears here to discuss the mouth sounds at the forefront of each campaign is OPR. OPR political correspondent Dirk. Mullins, good morning. Dirk I leslie it sounds like both campaigns are beginning to ramp up ahead of this month conventions. That's right this week. The Joe Biden campaign released. The first of dozens of new mouth sounds they say constitute the backbone of the former vice presidents platform based on what we know from his recent interviews Democrats as a whole are eager for fresh new teeth, clatters and Boulder Saliva swishing take a listen. These are certainly new sounds from Biden. But I'm still hearing the broad Fleming us that makes them appealing to centrist Democrats as well as moderate Republicans. What about trump? Well, we're all familiar with President, trump's lowered wet displays of Brash burps, slobber and stuff to Sinus, rasps that have made him. So popular with his base and it looks like not much has changed for twenty twenty. So while the president is firing back against Biden, he's using the same inflammatory gurgles spit ups. We've come to expect here's trump speaking at a White House luncheon just two days ago. Certainly as wet, but the real question is, will it work for that? We'll have to wait until November right now. Biden, is leading trump in some key states and trump may need to soften his position on swirling coughed up snot around in his mouth if he wants to maintain his already tenuous hold on white suburban women, many of whom say Biden's overly moist inhales better aligned with their values, right. But our democratic leaders concerned that Biden's middle of the road mouth sounds could act as a double edged sword appealing to the middle while pushing away progressives who don't want more of the same that. That is a concern while Biden has a long history of neutral centrist mouth sounds his team hopes these new swishes and swallows will entice voters farther on the left who demand dryer sticky. Your mouth sounds and do progressively agree it appears so Bernie. Sanders, drew in huge numbers of young progressives who preferred his brand of spittle flecked tongue slaps and cracked lip wheezing. But with Bernie out of the race, now Biden's team is seeking to make space for these voters by taking on some of Bernie's mouth sounds just this week. The Biden campaign added this Fleming snort from burn himself to their website. You can really hear his lips parting, the sea ever drink water. It's unclear though he's publicly announced. He would be willing to drink water and Abidin Administration. Well, all I can say is I'm so sick of all these nasty sounds playing on my TV, I can't wait till this election is over share. But then before you know it, it's already time for the first mouth sounds twenty, twenty, four. Oh, boy, you're telling me. Thanks Turk. Dirk.
Defending MacOS Against Sophisticated Attacks
"I've come from a kind of unusual background I guess for somebody in Cybersecurity. In. The sense that I started. I. Mean I've been involved with the MAC platform for. Something like fifteen years or more. But I didn't really start getting into it in a kind of technical way until about eleven years ago. And, I just started out on Apple's support forums trouble-shooting. Volunteering. Troubleshooting advice to people. And after Wa, that led me to most problems that are coming up back then were or it started to be when we started to see security issues like adware and things like that. And that sort of an Brown about way, let me to develop my own software to basically deal with all these issues. Instead of answering people's questions all the time. and. So for about five or six years I was. Developing my own software and doing that and. Then, about two years ago, I joined central one, basically, they were looking for somebody who had background in McCoy security shoes to sort of help with with research. And somebody who kind of knew the threat scape and sort of seen it evolve so. That's kind of how I got to today. Janka. Where do we find ourselves today when it comes to Mac Os and and sort of the state of things when it comes to security and what's your estimation of where we are? Generally the Mackie's a safe platform. I don't think. There's a big argument about that, but I think the the issue really is that. There is a malware problem on Mac os which never existed maybe five or six years ago. It's actually even escalated again in the last couple of years I think and I think part of that is to do with the fact that Maxim now. Foul often found in business environments whereas they probably weren't. Going back was five or six years would really. Popular Business Machine. And I think it's also that. Just to use his vague general term threat actors. Realized there is money to be made from accuses. Possibly it comes with the development of the iphone from two, thousand seven. But the fact that people now have them. Max connected to so many other devices there a rich hunting ground for people who want to. Gather, data of adware. We. Also have some more targeted actors as well with the business environment. So. I think the situation today really is that. There is a lot more threats, for Max, and has ever been before, but I think also not a great awareness Soviet. If you compare that to say windows. Yeah. You can ask even the most basic windows us and they probably know what an AV is probably know that they need to have windows defender turned on or something like that. But with MAC users, I don't generally get that sense of awareness. You know this is sort of general feeling that it's a market. It's safe by design. You know I think that's. Something that people really need to have second thing about with the kind of threats that we see these days. It's it's my perception from the folks that I've talked to that the majority of the The malware hitting Mac users seems to be adware people. It's that classic update your copy of Flash and then something gets installed shows. Ads is, is that an accurate perception on my part I? Would say, so I think I wouldn't like to give figures because I don't really have the data to to say that, but you know it. Sort of. Off of the top of my head, I would say, probably seventy eighty, maybe even ninety percent of the stuff I actually see on a day to day basis is going to be adware and it's Kinda cousin, which is the stuff recalled bundle way all the kind of. Potentially. unwanted. Software. That gets installed alongside says, download some software manager and you get like ten. Things back keeper and Lisov utilities that are not really often any any value. That often get installed. Through hidden, very, very difficult to see check boxes and things like that. CRYPTO is also thing. We've had allowed minor bird minors in the last couple years that they've been intimidated detections. We see those on the rise quite a lot. and. Too, much lesser extent. There's bits of the spyware. Data stealing stuff, Anacostia things that get headlines every hour now, and again is the. Things Lazarus or AP GM era. You know very very targeted dings going after specific uses. So yeah, I. Mean I. think that's a fairly accurate way to think about it. In terms of the general user. I, think the most threats they're looking at our. ADWARE unbundle where? The other problem that I'm I see. Developing is when we look at these adware bundle where actors and. Listen to in the media's general slayer which has been. Pretty proactive in the last eighteen months, or so what you see is a lot of interaction between between themselves and a lot of swapping. So you get adware sources installing bundle wear and you get bundle where download is that are serving up where and it's it's kind of difficult. Actually a Lotta time to pull up different players, all these sort of paper install kind of things, some serving adware, some of them are serving genuine malware so. It seems as if there is a lot full of interaction with these guys. In terms of helping each other out to. Serve this. I mean I just called a whole lot malware. Basically, something that the US had doesn't want doesn't know and is not in our interests and as you know as far as I'm concerned it, you might as well call it all where. The number of these things his what's really. Quite. Shocking. When you look at just how much more of this is occurring this more this year than there was last year, you know almost exponentially, and this seems to be more players as
Trump allows some unemployment pay, defers payroll tax
"Payroll tax cuts because they're they're coming. Starting September 1st, we're gonna have payroll tax cuts. September, October, November December. From executive order Technically Executive memorandum from the president. In addition to student loans being continued to be deferred eviction memory, our moratorium extended And then the extra $400 per week of unemployment benefits again. Executive order from President Trump Now how did the payroll tax Cuts work. Granted, you've gotta be working to get a payroll tax cuts, so this does not help the unemployed, But it's going to put more money into people's pockets and you do some math here so first off a couple thoughts. This is brand new, so people are trying to still try to figure it out. But from what we understand this is about what this thing is gonna look like September 1st until the end of the year. If you're making less for $4000 or less. In any two week period. That's of any bi weekly period. So it's equivalent of this of this impacts anybody that's making about two grand a week or $140,000 per year or less. Or less. And it seems as though this is going to be determined by your bi weekly pay period. You would be in this group that's going to get a payroll tax cut. Remember the payroll tax cut his FICA and Medicare. You put them both. Together. It's 7.65% so let's do some math. Here again. If you're in this camp, $104,000 or a year or less. Or $4000 or less in a bi weekly pay period, which sounds like the more important calculation here. It's not your annual number, but it sounds like it's a pay period numbers how they're gonna look at this. If you're gonna take 7.5% off of that, which is the employee portion of this That's about 306 bucks a box for every two weeks ago at the Max. So if you're making right at the 4000 levels, said Boyd, 65% is $306 for a two week period and then times to turn up months. I look at this monthly It's about 612 bucks a month. That's really money. Of 600 bucks a month for the next four months. September, October, November, December. That's about $2500 a year. Money that's just directly in your pocket that you wouldn't otherwise have. You're collecting Mohr out of your paycheck, because less is going Teo and medical lessons going federal government

Man is on a mission to save old dogs who need a home
"Of mine was on the show. Actually, during the protests and riots going on in ST Louis, you might know Mike Duke from Missouri Gold buyers. He has another mission in his life. And I want to share that with you because it really moves my heart and I think it'll move yours as well. But Mike is ah has recovered from throat cancer. So you might hear a little strain in his voice. But actually, this is about the best. It's been a long time. So welcome to KMOX. Mike Duke. How are you, sir? I'm doing rather well, How are you? I'm good. Did you get your store back Open the one that was broken, too way had to clean up the mess and replace all the windows. But we opened back up. And what the price of gold and silver right now we are extremely good for you. Good for me because it allows me to work on my rescue and let's talk about that's we are officially a five, a 13 C organization with Max's second Chance Express and Rescue And this is something that you've been doing. Ah, for a while now, but I want to go back to the the original thought you have in your head You shared with me a couple of weeks back of why you started this. Tell me the conversation you had with God. Well, I went I was sick. I was diagnosed with stage four cancer. I am a gentleman who never used a tobacco product in my life. I had a drink in 20 something years. I went to the doctor thinking I had strep throughout. And I had stage four Tillman's well cancer. I spent over 42 days and the ice who I was actually dying about Trish because a cooking it nutrients because of my damage to my tongue. But by that time that I was in there as I tell people you don't You don't you're not sick. As long as I was as bad I was without having a couple conversations with Jesus. But in one of those conversations I thought to myself that you know, I've been pretty plus that business. I'm very blessed with my sham. They have a wonderful family. And the one thing I realized I was slacking was giving back and I made about a God that if I got through this if you help me do it because I only added 20% chance to live. And if you help me get through it. I promised him that I would give it back. But I made do it, You know, help. I was looking for stuff to help the community and what I did was, I went down to chair ST Louis, which is pretty much the same Polis animal control and I started volunteering there walking the dogs taking care of the dogs in the cages and like that. To give back and Bo I swear you God showed me what my true calling is. I've never had anything Make me still is because I do. When I take a stray dog who's been abused. Oh, who's been neglected and show it love and training, and by the time we're finished? They are a pack that that is a would be adopted and have you up in that community. Capture that had problems with the number one problem for rescues his transportation. You know what I mean by that? If you go to southern Missouri, and you go to these dog pounds like popular Bluff and Sykes and Daphne, they have Children that are 65. 70% you said, kill rates. That means that if they can't find a home or getting adopted, they've gotta put it down. Yet. So for a while you've been running Max is second chance Express and rescue and you physically you're personally running around and picking up these dogs to the tune of how many a week so far. Somewhere between 30 and 40. And what I'm doing is taking up these dogs from these actual shelters, and I'm bringing him back to ST Louis to the know Choe Rescue's out in a 60 rescues and samples. I probably deal with 25 to 30 of them, right. I bring them the dogs. That we're going to be Children and southern Missouri. And I bring him up here so they can get him adopted. And they have they have a knack to do that. They have a way to find out people that are looking for dogs. So you're doing that. And now Max is second chance Express and Rescue is legitimate. You're a 513 C organization so people can now financially help you in this progress. Yes, at this moment for the last year. I have been driving my own personal and I'm putting probably $2500 a week on it or something of that sort. And I pay for the gas. I paid for everything. When I'm looking at doing is getting a I would love to be able to get a Yeah, absolutely it up with metal changes, and you know it, then that small bus You know, one of those like they use at the airport? Yeah, the cell boss's yet and I pulled all the sheets out and I put Medicaid jizz. It allows me to do a couple things that way. So what I need is a bus with chicks with those cages, And I could say more because at this point I'm limited Mommy Dog in my Escalade. Dragon, $18. Where can people get ahold of you? At this moment, you can use my email. My personally Amy looks upsetting on my website. I'm setting up my Facebook page. It should be done by this weekend. But at this point, I just have my email, which is M W as in Michael William. Underscored Duke at Yahoo dot Perfect, Okay. MW underscore Duke at yahoo dot com Reach out to Michael Duke.

Topiramate and Adderall Reduce Cocaine Use
"We often say that single positive studies need replication and here comes one in two thousand, twelve randomized trial found that the combination of toe. Pyramid and adderall ex SAR worked better than placebo at helping people with frequent cocaine. You stay sober. This new study sought to replicate that although it was by the same research group is the original one Columbia's New York state psychiatric. Institute. The. New Edition is a larger study that looked at one hundred and twenty seven patients over three months. It was a double blind randomized placebo controlled trial that tested the combination of adderall Exeter with. Toe Pyramid, likely earlier study the treatment worked on primary measure. How many patients stayed sober for at least three weeks none achieved that on the placebo but fourteen percent did on the treatment. They were careful and conservative cardiovascular measures, and actually one in five patients had to stop the treatment due to elevated blood pressure pulse during the study. Otherwise, the treatment was well tolerated, which begs the question why not just use toe, pyramid on its own Toe Pyramid does have promising pilot studies on its own for cocaine use as does adderall on its own though that particular adderall study was in people with Adhd who used cocaine but clinically. Less risky of the to pyramid before considering the combination and it would be nice to see a study with three arms that could test out whether Toe pyramid alone is just as effective as the combination in this study. Toe. Pyramid was tight traded over six weeks to a maximum of one hundred milligrams twice a day an adderall ex SAR was titrate over two weeks to a Max of sixty milligrams per day. The authors suggested that the cardiovascular risks might have been lessened if adderall was tight traded more slowly.

State of Play Reactions
"And hello everyone. My name is Jonathan Bush and this podcast beyond episode six, hundred and sixty one. In episode I am starting as I. Prepare a treat thing for my dog because he's angry that I'm recording this show I'm joined this week by Brian All. He can. He can. He can bark for me. He can you Andros joined by Max Scoville. You should get him xbox controller shape squeaky toys so that he can be a playstation show disrupting commodore dog form. That's a good idea. Now, what do you think of this contaminant and then he bites up? Obviously, he's mad that I haven't given them that tree yet. So I'm going to send it his way. Of, course, we are going to be talking all about the state of play which just wrapped up as a recording the show. Unfortunately, Lucy O'Brien can't be with us because her Internet has decided why? Why were today? That's unnecessary? So she's figuring that out. But of course, if you're wondering where regular scheduled episode is already happened, so you can go back and listen to that either on youtube or your favorite podcast services. It's all there But yeah, we want to do a second episode to break down this state of play and we have a full wrap up all of the video screen shots, all that stuff on Nigerian. You can check out a full breakdown of it. I don't think we'll be going. By game during this, but this, what state of play, of course did come with the expectations that there would not be any major first party announcements there would not be any. Hardware or business related announcement. So assumingly here about any I pretty acquisitions or anything like that, I is basically going to be focused on ps four PS VR and some third party indie updates when it comes to ps five. So with that. All in mind as the expectations were set, just sort of a general down feel Brian. I'll start with you. How did you feel about the show overall? It. I guess like a a C. I would seem like a six out of ten or I, guess, that would be a not not a is like a seven, right? So. Six ten I D. Letters. Yeah, maximum. He looks better idea. Let's do states if that's if that's the state of play was a state, it would be a solid. New Hampshire which I don't really have any strong feelings about I don't particularly dislike it, but it doesn't really get me excited. Nobody's like want to go to New Hampshire and I go hell. Let's go to new. Hampshire, right just it was fine like I feel like they were good in terms of getting expectations on the right level. But at the same time like you know they were like it's going to be forty plus minutes and I was like. Well, it's searcher was but. You know. What it was fine it. It's all right. What else are we GonNa do in Twenty Twenty Watch. The News. Yeah I mean I'm trying to think what other states that would be similar to in like most of it, I'm not really interested in visiting, but it had some. Could be. Cool. Yeah, it's yeah. I. Guess I, Guess, that's a good way of putting. It is I. I'll never never turn these things down, but it is. It does feel a little weird that it was. It was just sort of a kind of a few small things. Some slightly bigger things glued together. But nothing really like. Holy Crap that that was huge, but I think the key thing is these been. So sort of inconsistent. If like if they if these were first announced, was it like last year around e three? If somebody had done these on a on a regular cycle, like kind of like Nintendo directs, are I feel like we'd be more accustomed to like what to expect, but the fact that this is this is coming along especially when we're so hungry for PS five news, it's just a little bit like it's even even when they're completely preparing us. It's still a little hard not to be like a little bit underwhelmed. Just like well, I wanted more. Than intended Iraq's have sort of pivoted recently with the their announcement of those like new mini rex doing, and so I think even even the cadence of what these things used to be is now going away and so that's I don't I don't know I feel that like it's cool to get like kind of information drops like this, but on the flip side like I'd. Rather. I'd rather they charge of the laser beam in blasts it when it's when it's big and strong, right? Yeah. It's. It's a weird thing because you know a I think it was maybe a month or two ago. They did almost like a state of play on the playstation blog of ten big upcoming indie Games for PS Horn ps five and I wonder like why wasn't that a state of play presentation Max to your point like the identity of what this is? This year state of play has been the. The last of US and goes to Sushi my showcases and last year was the first one where they focused so much on ps VR that people got very upset that it wasn't focused enough on ps four. So they pivoted in the second one. Had you know F F seven remake finally coming back in a big monster hunter, a ice born DLC showcase. Mike. Big Games that people wanted to see and it has been this uneven inconsistent thing that I don't really know what the identity of it is. and. So going into this presentation, the expectations are set, but

Science into understandable stories and travels the world educating audiences about natural wellness Lindsey. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for back. Absolutely thanks for having me back. It's an honour. Well, you're one of my favorite guests becoming a recurring us which I love so I'm glad that you're here today and I'm super excited to talk about this particular topic of DNA and what our DNA can tell us about essential oils, and we've actually had a number of guests on the show before to to cover this topic. But I feel like you're gonNA just sort. Sort of put the icing on top of everything and make it click in people's minds because that's what you're best at just breaking down complicated things and making them simple. So this is part of your thirty podcasts in thirty days. Tell us a little bit more about that. Well I recently started a podcast called the Lindsay elmore show, and I, some of my guests have been have been educating me on how you can. Can Get your podcast out there. If you go on a podcast tour and a few months ago, I was at an event called pod Max and one of the speakers was a writer for four herbs and she had written an article about how she accomplished doing thirty podcasts in thirty days, and I just thought, wow, that sounds really hard and I decided why not give it a try and book as many as you. You can get the word out there and really share all the different facets you know. I. Love Essential Oil. So I'm excited to be here to talk to your audience, but we're also looking at podcast that encompass all of the entrepreneurship that I do the Vegan cooking yoga. Even my new little cat. We've applied to some to some broadcast to talk about you know my first couple of weeks having a kitten and so. A great way I, don't know. So it's a great way to meet New People and to share topics that I care about right. Well, I, love how the podcast world is. So multifaceted in that way, like we are human beings, we are complex creatures and we are both passionate, right. So have been able to find. There's a podcast there for everything. So whatever little passion or hobby or? Or thing that's like in your heart that you want express share with the world. There's a show out there to do just that for people who are hungry for that information, which is one of the reasons I just love podcast. Absolutely. I. Completely agree there. We have come across some crazy crazy podcast and we even applied to one and there was only about the health benefits of olives. Like was like, how do you have a podcast only about that? But there is legitimate podcast for anyone and everyone. That's hilarious. I'M GONNA have to add that into my book that I'm writing about podcast. Dina's is just an example how niche you can make these things. So. Let's dive into the Science DNA. Tell us what gives us like the kindergarten version of what is DNA, and what can you tell us about our bodies. So DNA is basically A. For your body, every single person has DNA and there are building blocks of DNA called base pairs, and we each have about three point two, billion base pairs of DNA, and what we have is these base pairs make called genes. So there's a sequence of the base pairs that make gene the gene in codes, a part of your body bit either contributes to the structure of your body. So you can have a gene that helps to encode for tissues or four bones or for tea. Or you can have genes that encode for the function of your body, and so this could be perhaps an enzyme or it could be a spleen soul that is destined to help clean your blood cells. So DNA it's a blueprint, it's built of base pairs that make up jeans, and then genes encode the structure and function

"Thought I would like. Somebody things I didn't really know existed need an out of peabody largely largely out but I did feel really inspired by what I was doing at school to print out especially through some jazz courses that I was taking here and that was really life changing because now let's mostly what I do is experimental music proposition. Jazz writing my own stuff Contemporary classical music. What about any setbacks? Do you feel like there has been any significant obstacles that you faced either during your time at school or afterwards and if so how did you get past those? I think that this career really demands that you know yourself really really well. And that's been a pretty big source of stress for me coming to terms with what I'm capable of when not capable of and which things I can change which I can't and that's changed throw my whole life. I'm sure but it's time management. That's really bad at that. Something could freelance. It's gotten better through much hard work. I can say that But also mental health stuff is definitely gotten in my way the last few months especially and I'm not sure how much of that is directly related having graduated been out in the world fully. And how much is that? It's kind of coincidental. But that's something I'm starting to learn. You can't just power through. You have to find some kind of way of gently addressing it like as soon as you start to notice a pattern and I've kind of thought points where I powered through enough that by the time it really gets to me. I can't have no defense against it and takes me weeks to feel like I recovered and I haven't really found it yet. There must be a way to become more conscious of those cycles in emotional health and and in finding ways to boost yourself before I can control to recognize it and then be able to address it sooner and to talk about it with people you trust as there anything in particular that surprises you about your life after graduation. Well I had kind of forgotten what it was like to have any sort of free time so we other than that. I think. Probably just what you'd expect in terms of person now in the real world.

I really didn't understand this whole Max headroom phenomena. I mean I really couldn't relate to them. I had no connection so max headroom was this fictional character described by creators. As in artificial intelligence he was played by a real person in a ton of makeup to make him look sort of computer generated. I did and he also sounded. Computer generated his voice would like pitch shift and stutter randomly. This is Max headroom. He looked like a news program.

"I went to the UK, for example, immediately after my primary the week after for UK labor party conference in Liverpool where I expected to be relatively anonymous and people recognized being there, which was very very peculiar and surprising for me. I think that that alone was an indicator not of of who I am really as a candidate. But of the extraordinary attention that the race. Received. So I think I think if anything it was just a higher level of scrutiny than I could have expected, especially as as a brand new candidate. Does that mean that that you don't feel like you did anything that you regret? Or are there things that now you feel like you do wanna prove to to your constituents, especially it demanded for me was to just think carefully about my own how how my own narrative the significance of my own narrative. Right as a candidate and gave it gave me the opportunity to. I think articulate that better. I think if if I would change anything it would have been to be more prepared for that. And I'm I'm glad that going into going into session. But also into the next the next election. I'll have had that experience and be able to better communicate and more clearly communicate with. With with my constituents so talking about the session and the governor, obviously, Democrats control the Senate, there's a lot of power there. But the governor of still has a lot of thority in terms of keeping him honest. Progressive goals. How do you see you and other advocates slash elected officials doing that what's the mechanism? He's won a landslide victory is in there for another four years. How do you hold him to his promises, and we should note that you cross endorsed with his primary opponents at the Nixon as context area? I mean, even even as governor Cuomo won a huge victory. I think it I think that what that race demanded what the governor's race to banded was for him to actually confront issues that he didn't previously have to take a a very clear stance on and I think with the deadline coming up in June on the rent laws, for example, with the L train shutdown coming up in April. These are things that previously the governor may have have not had to pay attention to. But are naturally coming to ahead. And so I think that is that is one thing is is the naturally is going to face pressure to to make decisions about the MTA about. I think about congestion pricing different funding mechanisms and as. As a legislator. I'm I'm hopeful that particularly with the majority that we have in such a progressive majority that we will have more leverage to to pressure governor Cuomo when when necessary and certainly around the budget as well, we're gonna have to leave it there.

"So while it's it's a new experience for me. It's also a particularly at transitional time for all of us. Even even those who have our more senior senators, so you mentioned being sort of on the left pole of of even the democratic conference, which is mostly pretty progressive. And as I mentioned a lot of these other primary winners were were challenging folks from the left mostly those members of the IDC Senator line was not one of them. But how how are you going to approach that Duke specked to be sort of an outspoken voice calling on your colleagues too? You know that they have to really stay true to things they ran on. Do you think you're going to have to play some of that role and really trying to pull your conference left eye? Look forward to playing that role to a degree to urging my colleagues, for example to make the commitment as I'm seeing more of the make to not take money from from the real estate lobby or from private interests. I think that I I'm looking forward to playing that role. But I'm I'm not sure if if it's going to be demanded of because what I found in conversations with colleagues so far and and from our conference retreat this week, it's it's that people are that that's unders are really responsive to the needs of their districts and recognizing whether it's through this. You know, blue Blue Wave in New York and the victories that we saw in the primaries or or otherwise that the elector is demanding more progressive stances, and that we actually fight to advance for legislation. That's been held up for a long time. You've been there. Named the incoming chirp person of the subcommittee and women's health. What will that involve it's because it's a brand new subcommittee. It's it's still a relatively unclear but I know that I'm I'm thrilled to be able to to focus on passing the reproductive health act. Also, the CCA, but I think it will also extend to many of the public health issues that disproportionately affect women as well. So so I think there's a tendency to associate women's health reproductive health. But it goes it goes far beyond this. And I'm excited to to work on a range of issues, including you know, mental health, including environmental issues that disproportionately impact impact women as well. Especially my own district. I wanna ask you about about the governor and pulling him left, but before that because something you just said reproductive rights to something where you've had a personal shift in in your views. And there were also some other things that came up during the campaign about how you're telling your story. And so whereas whereas all that now where are you? Now, are there things you feel like you still need to prove or do or or or is that all behind you? How are you thinking about about that? I'm excited to have the opportunity to to actually get to work as so much of of a campaign while it's it's necessary. What we're talking about whether it's it's narrative or or even just speaking about platform, and what we're going to do while it's while it's essential. It's it. It's difficult to not be able to actually get get to work on these things and demonstrate our commitment to them. Right. So what I'm really looking forward to is having the opportunity to demonstrate through my work in the legislature that that I'm serious about about these issues and be able to to show who I am to to my constituents and to my colleagues as well. Do you feel just to stand there for a second? Do you feel that the media mistreated you during the campaign or do you feel some of the problems where self inflicted? Yeah. I think that I was I do think I was subjected to extrordinary scrutiny for a state Senate candidate and for a new candidate, even even people who I would say our political opponents of mine, I think acknowledged that this for a state Senate race this received completely completely extraordinary attention..

"What do you what do you see sort of some of the dynamics that are going to be in play? There. Are there do do you see a lot of things lining up where the assembly in the Senate majorities will agree and really have to just sort of convinced the governor to get on board are there different priorities in the assembly versus the Senate. How how does that all work say I have yet to have a conversation about the priorities of the speaker? I don't know if they've met in conference the way, we have already to be perfectly honest. But traditionally the assembly has been able to pass a lot of the progressive legislation that's been stalled for a long time in a Republican controlled state Senate. And of course, a lot of the legislation that we campaigned on not just me, but the other IDC challengers and even others who once he didn't come in like Julius ally. Right. We are. We are very upfront about what our priorities are an ultimately were hoping that the assembly will. Stay in support of these things. Because of course, we know that sometimes it's easier to support things that you know, aren't going to go anywhere. But you know, we we we are aware that that is a possibility, and we'll be working with the state assembly to make sure that you know, things stay the priority that they should be year from now journalists like us they're going to look back on two thousand nineteen and say, here's your that began with all this hope these speculations democratic controlled state government a long list of progressive legislation. What got done what didn't what do you think is a realistic expectation for voter? There's so much on the table. There are other things to think about to what would be a reasonable expectation for successes this year. And where do you think we'll still do work a year from now, I think that for sure we like I said earlier we have to pass the reproductive health act. I would really love to. See a lot of voter reform pass before twenty twenty specifically automated registration early voting. No, excuse absentee ballots, even campaign finance reform for certain I mean, running for office is very very difficult, especially for people who have to work for a living. So making sure that that more working class New Yorkers can run for office and compete is. I think very very important. And I really think that there needs to be significant progress made on the MTA front or New Yorkers are going to revolt. I mean, I I was you know, Josh with you guys earlier about how I had to. I now have learned to leave twenty minutes earlier. And of course, the train was on time today. Right. So I was here a little a little a little earlier than you guys. But, but Nevertheless, I think that that's now become the exception not the norm. And that's a problem because we can't be the best city in the world. If our, you know, our trains, not working to follows on that one is other than congestion pricing..

"Maybe it's just more making sure that everybody has insurance and healthcare rather than a single payer system. So I am I am very much in favor of a single payer system. That is what we campaigned on. And that is what we would love to deliver. I think that once Gustavo is done having all of the conversations he needs to have. We'll hopefully have a good Bill that everyone everyone can accept your district. What do you see is the case for single payer? Sometimes healthcare is talked about it's kind of an abstract issue with principles and ideology. But in terms of your constituents where is the case in your district to move what we have now to a single payer system. So for starters, the single payer healthcare Bill would cover transitions for a lot of my transgender neighbors, regardless of whether they are documented or not, and this is a huge huge issue because unfortunately, not many insurance companies cover the medical needs for these transitions. And if they do cover the only. For them partially. So this is something that's very important to me and making sure that transgender New Yorkers are included. And of course, then there are undocumented immigrants and making sure that we're actually seeing access to healthcare as a public health issue. We don't want the person on the subway next to us to be coughing to be no we want. We want to prioritize preventive care. We don't want there to be any barrier. Espec- especially in economic one for New Yorkers to be able to go to the doctor and get that annual checkup or if they're not feeling well, or ultimately, we know that the most expensive type of healthcare emergency healthcare, right? We want to Levy eight all of the craziness that takes place in emergency rooms. Now, I technically don't have a hospital in my district, which is another problem that we can discuss, but but we are served by hospital and Mount Sinai hospital, and of course, elmhurst hospital is famous for having a full emergency room. All. All the time because it's a trauma center because it ends up serving such a such a large geography. So there's there's a lot of work to do on the health front. I'm someone who's fighting desperately for a health clinic for east elmhurst where I have in aging black population of also a big undocumented population. And where there are virtually no doctors, and if God forbid, there's some sort of emergency, they get stuck on the ambulance in on in congestion in traffic on on the on the Grand Central Parkway, for example, on their way to the hospital, and that's something that's not fair, and we're looking to correct in order for a lot of the primaries to move, and it's gonna be a brand new day in Albany, Democrats control, the state's Senate Democrats, having a very strong majority in the assembly still, and of course, democratic governor. But for anything to really move, you have to have agreement Senate assembly governor, unless of course, the governor's going to veto something the legislatures going over. Ride that.

"Is that something that you plan to take any action on when the new term begins worse much worse. The more. I learn the worse. It gets. I think a lot of us have been educated about Amazon's failings as a company that released their workforce as it relates to their relationship with the immigrant community in this country. They now have a partnership with ice to provide facial recognition technology. These are very concerning things about them as an institution. Now, the project specific queens is also bad and getting worse. So we we're learning that the three billion dollars in subs as we talk about or going into being more than that. Because this this parcel of land is in what's called an opportunity, which means there's a digital tax benefits beyond three billion that are going to go for that. Some of these sites may be. Brownfield sites which is going to layer on even more tax credits on top three billion already getting.

Come a time when we have something to say about and you can rest assured, I'm going to say something about it. When that time comes there's also things we learned that allows us to set the stage going forward in a better way. So this idea that has required nondisclosure agreements from all the cities and states that were bidding is outrageous. You have a private company dictating to government what it's allowed to tell people about the money. It wants to spend on their behalf is is rage raging. Crazy, I I'm going to be interesting legislation to ban that practice, and there's this larger issue of insider dealing in real estate world, we prohibit insider trading released the socks securities because it's unfair for someone who has confidential knowledge to use that to enrich themselves at other people's expense. It's no reason the analysis is any different as it relates to real estate. And we're hearing reports that Abbas on employees purchased departments and the week before the announcement. Maybe that's a crazy coincidence. But if it is them there have nothing to worry about. But if it isn't that should be prohibited. It'll be advancing legislation do that as well.

"To the nitty gritty of the issues, I was running against a an incumbent who was taking tens of thousands of dollars from real estate money while you know, we many of us as renters I'm a preferential renter are going through a lot of injustices for for example, left city in my dissed. Which is swamped in major capital improvement fees, increasing their rent sometimes two hundred dollars a month.

Should we expect you to be someone who's you know? Sort of blends into the scene. More in wants to have your wanted to give you the chance to say.

All the reasons why I ran for office to come to light to be the driving force behind the agenda that will put forth, we will fight visibly. A lot of what I talk. Talked about on the campaign trail was creating a political environment or a public discourse that is conducive to passing progressive legislation. We know how transactional this the governor's administration can be and if if things need to be made more comfortable for him to come ahead and be supportive of a lot of measure measures. And we'll do that. And I think that's what I bring to the table, especially now that all the incoming Senate labor committee chair and most of my a lot of people know me from my time at city hall, but I actually spent a near decade in the labor movement before that and to me was it's a matter of making sure that we are increasing or making better the ability for working class people to live in New York in many, many ways and really lifting the floor on Wegrzyn on labor protections to make. Sure that people can keep New York home. So I think that that we'll we'll have a very very interesting year. And we're going to do everything we can to be as productive as we can be talking with some of the policies. You mention before two big ones congestion pricing and senior single payer congestion pricing. Great place to start forty people in the conference some of them from districts that don't have anything to do with the MTA some districts that have resisted congestion pricing because of where the system touch them or doesn't touch them in the cloakroom behind the scenes when you're talking to colleagues like that how do you sell them on congestion pricing? So I think that alternate -ly. We will end up coming to some sort of green where nobody's happy which is intimately. How you know? You'll have a successful deal. Right. Of course. Because I mean, we're my district starts right by the East River. We're very supportive of congestion pricing because we understand the dire. Need of a fixing fixing public transportation? System. Other state senators care a lot about the environmental impact that taking these cars off the road would have it's it's really a big green issue to reduce carbon emissions. We want people to drive less. And of course, people will only drive of public transportation works, and that's kind of sort of the which one should come first question. But ultimately, you know, I think that we can never conceive of expanding the MTA right eastern, queens, a huge transportation desert east elmhurst in my in my district, which is the neighborhood where LaGuardia Airport is is actually a transportation desert..

"Make sure that we have an actual funding formula that is protected in a lock box. This is something I personally feel very strongly about tired of governors using the MTA like an ATM. I wanna make sure that we have study funding streams that are protected. So that we can actually have the MTA we deserve. Things that in Europe action that you know, your constituents really expect you to carry in the state legislature. Sure, I mean, obviously, given the work that my predecessor did around the dream act because we have the most dreamers in our district across the state. We're hoping that will continue to carry the dream act that we'll continue fighting for drivers licenses for all, of course, and the liberty act as well. These are just a few of the immigration reform that we can do at this at the state level because of course, immigration is federal law. But at the same time, I think that given what the White House is. And I'm sure folks have have read this morning about the seven year old girl who died in border patrol custody out of dehydration and shock, which is completely inhumane and heartbreaking that we at least at the state level. Do everything we can to protect our population. You mentioned your. assessor. We should talk about that. I mean, your manual unseated. Jose Peralta died just before thanksgiving during the transition, especially when you have an upset victory. There's always this effort, I assumed to reach out to supporters try to show the represent the full district. How has his death changed that if you had much contact with his camp in terms of unifying the district? We have not had much contact with his camp at all. You know as was reported. I tried to pay my respects and made folks uncomfortable, and understandably, you know, my team, and I left we just felt that it was the right thing to do at the end of the day. You know, we didn't wish him any harm. We just had very distinctive specific disagreements with which you know, what we believe representation for district should mean. And that's why I think you know, we put democracy in action. But ultimately, you know, I think it's been very difficult or district certainly in morning. He was our state Senator. For eight years the assemblymen for many of them for a long time. And and I think that we on our behalf are trying to be as cooperative as possible. And of course, we would love for for for us to work together to make sure that you know, there is no there's no hard stop and start in between specially services for our constituents Fernie bers, which I think is the most important thing for any elected official anyway that a month out from the election. So looking back Reten to cast we being the media cast elections in broad strokes. But you've had a chance I assume to look at the numbers talk to people. What do you attribute your victory the general which is a month ago? But in the primary to what was what was behind. The fact you were able to win. So I very much feel that it was a combination. Just because the verses so sorry the district is so diverse as I said earlier, you know, there were people who were very educated about the independent, Deborah. Pratt conference became activists this election cycle because they've woken up from, you know, the Trump nightmare. An case folks aren't up to speed. You're one of eight candidates who in the democratic primary took on former members of the independent democratic conference. Six of you remarkably were successful, which is virtually unheard of for that many primary wins to happen in one year. So sorry. That's exact-. That's exactly right. So a lot of people specifically in Jackson heights. You know, where where the infamous townhall took place where he tried to explain what the IDC was tried to explain it as the progressive caucus, even even though they were empowering Republican majority which was inexplicable and indefensible to me that very much helped in Jackson heights in a story and many other parts of the district. But of course, not everybody is that in tuned with politics, a lot of it was also a change in demographic are Latino population in the district is increasingly South American like me, and I think that then it came.

"Don't necessarily need everyone to be an agreement on everything in order for the past the last time Democrats have the majority I wasn't there. But they had a bare majority of thirty two which is the minimum number required. Anytime one Senator didn't wanna do something everything got gridlock. So we have now thirty nine or forty depending on what happens with sympathizer in Brooklyn. But that's a huge cushion of seven or eight votes that we can not necessarily need enemy on every say to some centers. Do do what you need to do for your district. I mean that type of thing or it's just a question of as we discussed it as a group if we have thirty five members and four problem those four can vote. No. And it could still pass. We don't need every vote for passage of everything and that's going to give a lot of flexibility to leadership to set the agenda into more detail. What about the relationship? With the governor it during the period when the IDC was in power there were suspicion that governor Cuomo tolerated that maybe even engineered it you in the governor's people had some friction during the campaign over where money was being spent what's the relationship like his progressive self image during the campaign. How solid does that look to you. What do you think that's going to be like this the dynamics between the executive and legislature are less important to me from a personal perspective than what we can get done together. And so there are issues of agreement, and we're gonna move forward together and aggressively and change some of these laws that have been waiting to be to be improved for so long. But that's all that matters. I lived with Jeff Klein of the Senate for how many years at the end of his tenure. There was this deal where everyone came together. And everybody was wondering how I was going to sit across the table from him. And I said I don't care if I like someone somebody if we're on the same page and trying to get things done, then we're gonna get things. On. And whether someone likes doesn't like me is not as relevant as helping the twenty million people who live in the state is going to be the Senate majorities job, maybe in conjunction with the assembly majority to hold the governor to his campaign promises to to keep pulling him left. You know, it seems like he gravitates towards the center is that part of how you you see the new Senate majority job. I mean, there's certainly a bunch of folks who who defeated IDC members who ran on pretty far left platforms. I don't think our job her say's to create some kind of broad desire to pull the governor anywhere. Our job is to get done what we campaigned on. And what people expect us to do on a host of issues. Now, they tend to be progressive nature, and I'm very very progressive in a lot of ways. So if the governor agrees with us who self-proclaimed progressive and self then this'll be very easy, and they won't be much friction if areas of disagreement, we certainly intend to assert ourselves. We're there for reason we're there to be anybody's rubber stamp. And so I think. You'd expect us to stand up and make our case, and they'll be negotiation both with the assembly and the governor, and we'll come to resolution what we'll say is the normal dynamic of Albany has been broken where these semblance Senate are in control of different parties and the playing one off against the other is part of a strategy to keep things from happening..

"We're bringing a short series of discussions as part of gender twenty nineteen including one today to look ahead to two thousand nineteen in Albany, the seat of state government. And what newly empowered Democrats plan to do. For today's discussion. We'll have to fficials will be part of the new state Senate Democratic majority one who pulled off an upset victory. Earlier this year to become a first time elected official and another who is a veteran lawmaker. We'll be the deputy leader of the Senate majority. So welcome soon to be Senate deputy majority leader Michael gymnast, thanks for joining us. Thank you been for. Sure. So tell us what that means. You're going to be the deputy leader of a new democratic majority in the state Senate head you captured for people how significant that is mentioned. It'd be transformational. I don't know. How controversial also added that word. But, but it certainly we'll be transformational is the largest democratic majority one hundred six years in New York nineteen twelve was the last time anything like this happened. And we have been struggling with very strange dynamic in the Senate for the last decade, at least we're winning elections and having majority of members elected, but because of internal problems of the Senate something team up with Republicans. We never actually had control of the body. And we finally achieved that and now there's a long list of. Priorities that have been on the shelf that the people of New York, not only want but had been voting for and been denied you mentioned some of them. There's a lot more than that. And so it's gonna be very full agenda. Expect it's going to be the most productive session than any of us. Remember, so looking back at the election that created this large majority that you have a few weeks worth of perspective. What do you tribute to? How did you guys pull this off? What what happened to make this possibility and strategy? Also chair the camping. But honestly, look if you look around the country, you could tell there was a very good election for Democrats everywhere, the turn out was approaching presidential levels, which is very unusual in a midterm and typically when the turn out his higher Democrats perform better because it's our constituencies for whatever reason that seem more interested in presidential elections than other elections. Typically, I will say the while. There was a Blue Wave everywhere, we really maximized our results here in New York, we outperformed the top of the ticket and the number of victories and the Hudson valley where James scoops, Jen Metzker, and your senators now, they outperformed the votes that governor Cuomo got in those districts and on Long Island where we have Monica Martinez. John Brooks, Monica member John Brooks, reelected, they outperformed the congressional candidate for party there. So we do take pride in having really good candidates having run smart campaigns because of the eight seats we picked up which is historic of itself. Twice as many as the maximum that it ever flipped in the past. They were narrow victories. And so I think we were intelligent about where we dedicate our resources where we knew that the energy of the grassroots would carry us, and it was great success on those narrow victories as we transition. This conversation's talking about the governing. How did those districts and those narrow wins dictate how you approach governing? How worried do you need to be? You know, there's a lot of talk ready will Democrats can't go too far because then they'll lose those seats. They just picked up. How does that come into your first initial matter? I think what you can expect to see in the first two months. The pre-budget portion of session is a lot of things that the people have been waiting for an very popular everywhere. You mentioned your list, I think protecting women's reproductive rights is popular across the board, establishing more sensible gun laws popular across the board improving voting laws. So we make it easier to vote establish early voting automated, registration those types of things are popular with everybody. So there's an enormous amount of work that we can do. And I left a lot off those. Right away that I think will work for everybody as you get into some of the things that have a different support regionally around the state, and that's a conversation. We're going to have to have with our colleagues, but I will say this the margin is so large that we.

"Hello. Max executive editor gothic is at Jared. Murphy executive editor of city limits and city limits are partnering on agenda twenty nineteen a project to set the stage for promises to be a transformational and controversial year at the city and state levels of government in New York. We're exploring many of the major political dynamics and policy issues that will be on the table in the year ahead starting with the fact that Democrats will have complete control of state government in New York creating new opportunity for the party to move along a list of legislation on everything voting reform to abortion protections gun control rent regulations to environmental policy and more with Manhattan neighborhood network. We're bringing you a short series of discussions as part of gender twenty nineteen including one today to look ahead to two thousand nineteen in Albany the seat of state government. And what newly empowered Democrats plan to do. Joining us for today's discussion is a newly elected state Senator who pulled off an upset victory earlier this year. We welcome Senator elect Jessica Rambos. Thank you for being here. Thank you for having me. Excited. Good to get a chance to talk to you before you really get going. But what's the transition period? Been like so far for you. You know, it's been really interesting. I think that people traditionally have expected a lull in between when you win election, and when you are getting ready to take over the seat and get to work. There's a ton of work that goes into into this. This this time in staffing up figuring out who it is that we're going to hire where our district office is going to be. But we want the office to look like. And of course, making sure that we're laying the groundwork to pass the progressive legislation that we campaigned on and that we know is really necessary for all New Yorkers, and especially with such a big incoming new class. Right. So out of a thirty nine Machar person majority. There are fifteen new democratic state senators coming in. So it's it's gonna be fun time. So let's pull back. Can talk about your district. Where is it? What neighbors does it cover where you from? So I'll be res- representing the thirteenth senatorial district in queens, which is Jackson heights, corona east on pursed and parts of story. Woodside elmhurst it is the corner of the planet where I was born where I was raised where I still live. I'm raising two boys. We're five and seven their doorbell and pain in the butt, especially this morning before going to school. But.

"Max from golfing gazette with Jared Murphy from city limits and Jarrett we heard from Eliza cats at the daily news at a to'real board. Some of our thoughts really significant election day, both nationally and in New York and the conversation is a ready Turney as we did a little bit too. Also, looking ahead now what's going to happen in two thousand eighteen we can leave the federal level of side perhaps a little bit really there's a lot to be determined there. But also so much of our focus both on the show and at our publications, and of course, elsewhere New York is going to be on what's going to happen in New York. Now that you have this unified democratic control of state government coming in for two thousand eighteen will you mention to the top, and that, you know, the day after election feels like speaking as a person raised raise. Click that they have to Christmas what you do with the letdown with the unwrap presence and the tree starting to look a little bit dragged. This is a different day because I think so much about this election has been teasing very concrete ideas of what the next year is going to bring and even beyond that there's just a lot happening to nineteen that's gonna make it a very interesting year. Normally, this is the part for those who follow it closely in our real junkies about it. This is the part of the New York City New York state cycle that is down. Here is the the Europe between a statewide race at a presidential race. There's no city council mayor elections nothing on the state level. All you have really are some traditional elections and three district attorney races. So normally it would be kind of a dead zone struggling, we're gonna talk. But for a lot of reasons there is just a lot happening both in the city and the state and a lot of the same issues all year long, starting frankly with Turney races, one of which at least is going to be very very. Interesting because the queen's just turning Richard Brown is stepping down. And that race is. I think it become a kind of electoral test of some of the sentiment around criminal Justice reform based on some of the people who are running and very different opinions. They have on that topic. I'm interested to see how much of the city's sort of attention gets grabbed by this race queens. Obviously the second biggest borough population wise, there's everything in queens, and I can say that having grown up there with a lot of thirty. But it's going to be really really interesting to see how this district attorney race plays out. It's going to be important. It might even get national attention..

"Incumbent controller, Tom Napoli. This is Ben max. Thanks for joining us here on maxim Urfi. How're you. I'm great. It's wonderful to be on maximum Irvy's. Yes, and we didn't tell you a head of time, but Jared actually had to depart for the second half of the show. So it's me and u, but it's good good to have a chance to talk with you. Thanks for joining us. So we're in the heat of election season here. We've got less than five weeks until election day November. Sixth, tell voters and those listening. What's your pitch for getting another four years is the state controller. Well, I think that the easy way to answer that question is for the voters to look at the record of achievement and accomplishment that I've had during my time in office, the controller's office day controls offices, somewhat unique position. Many folks don't know quite what we do. They had something to do with money, but it certainly has been a very important position to keeping the state move forward during challenging times. And certainly if you look at how effectively we've managed the state payroll, state contracts, state payments, it certainly has been a very large and efficient body of work in that regard. Kind of caught the back office operation for state government, very important to keep New York moving are commentary on St. fiscal practices. State budget has been thoughtful and made a number of suggestions for reform and change most of which have not been adopted by the legislature and the governor, but we're going to keep pressing. Our stewardship of the state pension fund is one area. That I take particular pride. And when you look at the number of states that have poorly funded pensions and are in crisis, New York does not have that issue or challenge. In fact, we're one of the best funded state pension plans for the country. It means we can deliver on the retirement security to the one point, one million members of our pension system, and we've done more to invest money in New York state and to be responsible investors holding corporations..
